(P/B) SPECULUM OF THE OTHER WOMAN
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0093

Speculum of the Other Woman by Luce Irigaray is incontestably one of the most important works in feminist theory to have been published in this generation. For the profession of psychoanalysis, Irigaray believes, female sexuality has remained a "dark continent," unfathomable and unapproachable; its nature can only be misunderstood by those who continue to regard women in masculine terms. In the first section of the book, "The Blind Spot of an Old Dream of Symmetry," Irigaray rereads Freud's essay "Femininity," and his other writings on wom...

(P/B) INTRODUCTION TO THE READING OF HEGEL
LECTURES ON THE "PHENOMENOLOGY OF SPIRIT"
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0024

"This collection of Kojeve's thoughts about Hegel constitutes one of the few important philosophical books of the twentieth century - a book, knowledge of which is requisite to the full awareness of our situation and to the grasp of the most modern perspective on the eternal questions of philosophy." - Allan Bloom (from the Introduction) During the years 1933-1939, the Russian-born and German-educated Marxist political philosopher Alexandre Kojeve (1902-1968) brilliantly explicated - through a series of lectures - the philosophy of Hegel a...

(P/B) THE FLEETING PROMISE OF ART
ADORNO'S AESTHETIC THEORY REVISITED
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0112

A discussion of Theodor Adorno's Aesthetic Theory is bound to look significantly different today than it would have looked when the book was first published in 1970, or when it first appeared in English translation in the 1980s. In The Fleeting Promise of Art, Peter Uwe Hohendahl reexamines Aesthetic Theory along with Adorno's other writings on aesthetics in light of the unexpected return of the aesthetic to today's cultural debates. Is Adorno's aesthetic theory still relevant today? Hohendahl answers this question with an emphatic yes. As...

FIRST ENGLISH-LANGUAGE EDITION WITH REVISIONS AND ADDITIONS
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS

First English-language edition, with revisions and additions by the author. This classic work by one of the world's most distinguished Egyptologists was first published in German in 1984. The Search for God in Ancient Egypt offers a distillation of Jan Assmann's views on ancient Egyptian religion, with special emphasis on theology and piety. Deeply rooted in the texts of ancient Egypt and thoroughly informed by comparative religion, theology, anthropology, and semiotic analysis, Assmann's interpretations reveal the complexity of Egyptian t...

(P/B) THE SENSES OF MODERNISM
TECHNOLOGY, PERCEPTION, AND AESTHETICS
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0107

In The Senses of Modernism, Sara Danius develops a radically new theoretical and historical understanding of high modernism. The author closely analyzes Thomas Mann's The Magic Mountain, Marcel Proust's Remembrance of Things Past, and James Joyce's Ulysses as narratives of the sweeping changes that affected high and low culture in the age of technological reproduction. In her discussion of the years from 1880 to 1930, Danius proposes that the high-modernist aesthetic is inseparable from a technologically mediated crisis of the senses. She ...

(P/B) UNDERSTANDING OTHERS
PEOPLES, ANIMALS, PASTS
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0101

To what extent do we and can we understand others-other peoples, species, times, and places? What is the role of others within ourselves, epitomized in the notion of unconscious forces? Can we come to terms with our internalized others in ways that foster mutual understanding and counteract the tendency to scapegoat, project, victimize, and indulge in prejudicial and narcissistic impulses? How do various fields or disciplines address or avoid such questions? And have these questions become particularly pressing and not in the least confine...

(P/B) THE ORIGINS OF ALLIANCES
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0070

How are alliances made? In this book, Stephen M. Walt makes a significant contribution to this topic, surveying theories of the origins of international alliances and identifying the most important causes of security cooperation between states. In addition, he proposes a fundamental change in the present conceptions of alliance systems. Contrary to traditional balance-of-power theories, Walt shows that states form alliances not simply to balance power but in order to balance threats. Walt begins by outlining five general hypotheses about ...

(P/B) ALLIANCE POLITICS
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0108

Glenn H. Snyder creates a theory of alliances by deductive reasoning about the international system, by integrating ideas from neorealist, coalition formation, bargaining, and game theory, and by empirical generalization from international history. Using cases from 1879 to 1914 to present a theory of alliance formation and management in a multipolar international system, he focuses particularly on three cases-Austria-Germany, Austria-Germany-Russia, and France-Russia-and examines twenty-two episodes of intra-alliance bargaining. Snyder dev...

(P/B) ENDURING ALLIANCE
A HISTORY OF NATO AND THE POSTWAR GLOBAL ORDER
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0109

Born from necessity, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has always seemed on the verge of collapse. Even now, some seventy years after its inception, some consider its foundation uncertain and its structure weak. At this moment of incipient strategic crisis, Timothy A. Sayle offers a sweeping history of the most critical alliance in the post-World War II era. In Enduring Alliance, Sayle recounts how the western European powers, along with the United States and Canada, developed a treaty to prevent encroachments by the Soviet Uni...

(H/B) ARGUING ABOUT ALLIANCES
THE ART OF AGREEMENT IN MILITARY-PACT NEGOTIATIONS
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0110

Why do some attempts to conclude alliance treaties end in failure? From the inability of European powers to form an alliance that would stop Hitler in the 1930s, to the present inability of Ukraine to join NATO, states frequently attempt but fail to form alliance treaties. In Arguing about Alliances, Paul Poast sheds new light on the purpose of alliance treaties by recognizing that such treaties come from negotiations, and that negotiations can end in failure. In a book that bridges Stephen Walt's Origins of Alliance and Glenn Snyder's All...

(H/B) THE LIFE OF ALCIBIADES
DANGEROUS AMBITION AND THE BETRAYAL OF ATHENS
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0104

This biography of Alcibiades, the charismatic Athenian statesman and general (c. 450-404 BC) who achieved both renown and infamy during the Peloponnesian War, is both an extraordinary adventure story and a cautionary tale that reveals the dangers that political opportunism and demagoguery pose to democracy. As Jacqueline de Romilly brilliantly documents, Alcibiades's life is one of wanderings and vicissitudes, promises and disappointments, brilliant successes and ruinous defeats. Born into a wealthy and powerful family in Athens, Alcibiade...

(P/B) MOTHERS IN MOURNING
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0106

Nicole Loraux brilliantly elucidates how Athenian politics were 'gendered' in the Classical period. She investigates the Athenian state's interdiction of ritualized mourning by women, in a city where public mourning constituted a vital act of civic self-definition and solidarity. "As Loraux shows, the silencing and exclusion of female-especially maternal-claims to a crucial relationship with the city's fallen war heroes served, and was reinforced by, the ideologically charged, distinctively Athenian notion of the polis as mother of its cit...

(P/B) MEDIEVAL POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0073

Medieval Political Philosophy: A Sourcebook, edited by Ralph Lerner and Muhsin Mahdi, has been a classroom favorite since its publication in 1963. When it first appeared, it was the only anthology of medieval political philosophy to contain major texts from all three Western monotheistic traditions - Christianity, Judaism, and Islam - and that claim remains true today. This new edition of this classic text of political philosophy - revised and enlarged by Joshua Parens and Joseph C. Macfarland - will make accessible to today's students the...

(P/B) THE PEACE OF NICIAS AND THE SICILIAN EXPEDITION
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0019

Why did the Peace of Nicias fail to reconcile Athens and Sparta? In the third volume of his landmark four-volume history of the Peloponnesian War, Donald Kagan examines the years between the signing of the peace treaty and the destruction of the Athenian expedition to Sicily in 413 B.C. The principal figure in the narrative is the Athenian politician and general Nicias, whose policies shaped the treaty and whose military strategies played a major role in the attack against Sicily.

(P/B) GLOBAL MATTERS
THE TRANSNATIONAL TURN IN LITERARY STUDIES
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0103

As the pace of cultural globalization accelerates, the discipline of literary studies is undergoing dramatic transformation. Scholars and critics focus increasingly on theorizing difference and complicating the geographical framework defining their approaches. At the same time, Anglophone literature is being created by a remarkably transnational, multicultural group of writers exploring many of the same concerns, including the intersecting effects of colonialism, decolonization, migration, and globalization. Paul Jay surveys these developm...

(P/B) NARRATIVE DISCOURSE REVISITED
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0029

When it First appeared in France in 1972, Gerard Genette's now classic Narrative Discourse: An Essay in Method was hailed as a formative text for the contemporary study of narrative. In Narrative Discourse Revisited, which was originally published in 1983 under the title Nouveau discours du recit, Genette both answers critics of the earlier work and provides a better-defined, richer, and more systematic view of narrative form and functioning. This book not only clarifies some of the more complex issues in the study of narrative but also pr...

(P/B) ON GREEK RELIGION
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0074

"There is something of a paradox about our access to ancient Greek religion. We know too much, and too little. The materials that bear on it far outreach an individual's capacity to assimilate: so many casual allusions in so many literary texts over more than a millennium, so many direct or indirect references in so many inscriptions from so many places in the Greek world, such an overwhelming abundance of physical remains. But genuinely revealing evidence does not often cluster coherently enough to create a vivid sense of the religious re...
