(P/B) SEXUAL POLITICS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0227

A sensation upon its publication in 1970, Sexual Politics documents the subjugation of women in great literature and art. Kate Millett's analysis targets four revered authors-D. H. Lawrence, Henry Miller, Norman Mailer, and Jean Genet-and builds a damning profile of literature's patriarchal myths and their extension into psychology, philosophy, and politics. Her eloquence and popular examples taught a generation to recognize inequities masquerading as nature and proved the value of feminist critique in all facets of life. This new edition ...

(P/B) BREVITY
A FLASH FICTION HANDBOOK
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0226

In Brevity, David Galef provides a guide to writing flash fiction, from tips on technique to samples by canonical and contemporary authors to provocative prompts that inspire powerful stories in a little space. Galef traces the genre back to its varied origins, from the short-short to nanofiction, with examples that include vignettes, prose poems, character sketches, fables, lists, twist stories, surrealism, and metafiction. The authors range from the famous, such as Colette and Borges, to today's voices, like Roxane Gay and Bruce Holland ...

(H/B) ADORNO'S THEORY OF PHILOSOPHICAL AND AESTHETIC TRUTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0234

In Adorno's Theory of Philosophical and Aesthetic Truth, Owen Hulatt undertakes an original reading of Theodor W. Adorno's epistemology and its material underpinnings, deepening our understanding of his theories of truth, art, and the nonidentical. Hulatt's novel interpretation casts Adorno's theory of philosophical and aesthetic truth as substantially unified, supporting the thinker's claim that both philosophy and art are capable of being true. For Adorno, truth is produced when rhetorical "texture" combines with cognitive "performance,"...

(P/B) POWERS OF HORROR
AN ESSAY ON ABJECTION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0026

"Kristeva is one of the leading voices in contemporary French criticism, on a par with such names as Genette, Foucault, Greimas and others... [Powers of Horror is] an excellent introduction to an aspect of contemporary French literature which has been allowed to become somewhat neglected in the current emphasis on para-philosophical modes of discourse. The sections on Celine, for example, are indispensable reading for those interested in this writer and place him within a context that is both illuminating and of general interest." (Paul de...

(H/B) WHAT IS A PEOPLE?
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0175

"What Is a People?" seeks to reclaim "people" as an effective political concept by revisiting its uses and abuses over time. Alain Badiou surveys the idea of a people as a productive force of solidarity and emancipation and as a negative tool of categorization and suppression. Pierre Bourdieu follows with a sociolinguistic analysis of "popular" and its transformation of democracy, beliefs, songs, and even soups into phenomena with outsized importance. Judith Butler calls out those who use freedom of assembly to create an exclusionary "we,"...

(P/B) NOTES TO LITERATURE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0233

Notes to Literature is a collection of the great social theorist Theodor W. Adorno's essays on such writers as Mann, Bloch, Hoelderlin, Siegfried Kracauer, Goethe, Benjamin, and Stefan George. It also includes his reflections on a variety of subjects, such as literary titles, the physical qualities of books, political commitment in literature, the light-hearted and the serious in art, and the use of foreign words in writing. This edition presents this classic work in full in a single volume, with a new introduction by Paul Kottman..(From t...

(P/B) COUNTERSEXUAL MANIFESTO
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0224

Countersexual Manifesto is an outrageous yet rigorous work of trans theory, a performative literary text, and an insistent call to action. Seeking to overthrow all constraints on what can be done with and to the body, Paul B. Preciado offers a provocative challenge to even the most radical claims about gender, sexuality, and desire. Preciado lays out mock constitutional principles for a countersexual revolution that will recognize genitalia as technological objects and offers step-by-step illustrated instructions for dismantling the hetero...

(P/B) BETWEEN MEN
ENGLISH LITERATURE AND MALE HOMOSOCIAL DESIRE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0206

First published in 1985, Between Men was a decisive intervention in gender studies, a book that all but singlehandedly dislodged a tradition of literary critique that suppressed queer subjects and subjectivities. With stunning foresight and conceptual power, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick's work opened not only literature but also politics, society, and culture to broader investigations of power, sex, and desire, and to new possibilities of critical agency. Illuminating with uncanny prescience Western society's evolving debates on gender and sexual...

(Η/Β) THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

After four decades spent ascending to the top of the investment management profession, he is today sought out by the world's leading value investors, and his client memos brim with insightful commentary and a time-tested, fundamental philosophy. Now for the first time, all readers can benefit from Marks's wisdom, concentrated into a single volume that speaks to both the amateur and seasoned inve...

(P/B) AVICENNA AND THE ARISTOTELIAN LEFT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0210

Ernst Bloch was one of the most significant twentieth-century German thinkers, yet he remains overshadowed by his Frankfurt School contemporaries. Known for his engagement with utopianism and religious thought, Bloch also wrote incisively about ontological questions. In his short masterpiece Avicenna and the Aristotelian Left, Bloch gives a striking account of materialism that traces emancipatory elements of modern thought to medieval Islamic philosophers' encounter with Aristotle. Bloch argues that the great medieval Islamic philosopher A...

(H/B) PANTHEOLOGIES
GODS, WORLDS, MONSTERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0215

Pantheism is the idea that God and the world are identical - that the creator, sustainer, destroyer, and transformer of all things is the universe itself. From a monotheistic perspective, this notion is irremediably heretical since it suggests divinity might be material, mutable, and multiple. Since the excommunication of Baruch Spinoza, Western thought has therefore demonized what it calls pantheism, accusing it of incoherence, absurdity, and - with striking regularity - monstrosity. In this book, Mary-Jane Rubenstein investigates this pe...

(P/B) BLACK SUN
DEPRESSION AND MELANCHOLIA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0223

In Black Sun, Julia Kristeva addresses the subject of melancholia, examining this phenomenon in the context of art, literature, philosophy, the history of religion and culture, as well as psychoanalysis. She describes the depressive as one who perceives the sense of self as a crucial pursuit and a nearly unattainable goal and explains how the love of a lost identity of attachment lies at the very core of depression's dark heart. In her discussion she analyzes Holbein's controversial 1522 painting "The Body of the Dead Christ in the Tomb," ...

(P/B) REDUCTIONISM IN ART AND BRAIN SCIENCE
BRIDGING THE TWO CULTURES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0201

Are art and science separated by an unbridgeable divide? Can they find common ground? In this new book, neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel, whose remarkable scientific career and deep interest in art give him a unique perspective, demonstrates how science can inform the way we experience a work of art and seek to understand its meaning. Kandel illustrates how reductionism - the distillation of larger scientific or aesthetic concepts into smaller, more tractable components - has been used by scientists and artists alike to pursue their respectiv...

(P/B) OPENING NATO'S DOOR
HOW THE ALLIANCE REMADE ITSELF FOR A NEW ERA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0232

How and why did NATO, a Cold War military alliance created in 1949 to counter Stalin's USSR, become the cornerstone of new security order for post-Cold War Europe? Why, instead of retreating from Europe after communism's collapse, did the U.S. launch the greatest expansion of the American commitment to the old continent in decades? Written by a high-level insider, Opening NATO's Door provides a definitive account of the ideas, politics, and diplomacy that went into the historic decision to expand NATO to Central and Eastern Europe.

(P/B) POLITICAL USES OF UTOPIA
NEW MARXIST, ANARCHIST, AND RADICAL DEMOCRATIC PERSPECTIVES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0185

Utopia has long been banished from political theory, framed as an impossible - and possibly dangerous - political ideal, a flawed social blueprint, or a thought experiment without any practical import. Even the "realistic utopias" of liberal theory strike many as wishful thinking. Can politics think utopia otherwise? Can utopian thinking contribute to the renewal of politics? In Political Uses of Utopia, an international cast of leading and emerging theorists agree that the uses of utopia for politics are multiple and nuanced and lie somew...

(P/B) ALLIES OF CONVENIENCE
A THEORY OF BARGAINING IN U.S. FOREIGN POLICY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0231

Since its founding, the United States has allied with unsavory dictatorships to thwart even more urgent security threats. How well has the United States managed such alliances, and what have been their consequences for its national security? In this book, Evan N. Resnick examines the negotiating tables between the United States and its allies of convenience since World War II and sets forth a novel theory of alliance bargaining. Resnick's neoclassical realist theory explains why U.S. leaders negotiate less effectively with unfriendly autoc...

(P/B) THE INVENTION OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS THEORY
REALISM, THE ROCKEFELLER FOUNDATION, AND THE 1954 CONFERENCE ON THEORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0230

The 1954 Conference on Theory, sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation, featured a who's who of scholars and practitioners debating the foundations of international relations theory. Assembling his own team of experts, all of whom have struggled with this legacy, Nicolas Guilhot revisits a seminal event and its odd rejection of scientific rationalism. Far from being a spontaneous development, these essays argue, the emergence of a "realist" approach to international politics, later codified at the conference, was deliberately triggered by ...

(H/B) THE ALCHEMY OF DISEASE
HOW CHEMICALS AND TOXINS CAUSE CANCER AND OTHER ILLNESSES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0229

Since the dawn of the industrial age, we have unleashed a bewildering number of potentially harmful chemicals. But out of this vast array, how do we identify the actual threats? What does it take to prove that a certain chemical causes cancer? How do we translate academic knowledge of the toxic effects of particular substances into understanding real-world health consequences? The science that answers these questions is toxicology. In The Alchemy of Disease, John Whysner offers an accessible and compelling history of toxicology and its key...

(P/B) TIME AND THE OTHER
HOW ANTHROPOLOGY MAKES ITS OBJECT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0164

Fabian's study is a classic in the field that changed the way anthropologists relate to their subjects and is of immense value not only to anthropologists but to all those concerned with the study of man. A new foreword by Matti Bunzl brings the influence of Fabian's study up to the present. Time and the Other is a critique of the notions that anthropologists are "here and now," their objects of study are "there and then," and that the "other" exists in a time not contemporary with our own.

(P/B) RULES AND REPRESENTATIONS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3949-0032

As Norbert Hornstein writes in his foreword, "it underestimates Chomsky's impact in linguistics, philosophy, and psychology to describe it as immense." In Rules and Representations, Noam Chomsky lays out many of the concepts that have made his approach to linguistics and human cognition so instrumental to our understanding of language. In this influential and controversial work Chomsky draws on philosophy, biology, and the study of the mind to consider the nature of human cognitive capacities, particularly as they are expressed in language...
