(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...

(Η/Β) FROM STALIN TO MAO
ALBANIA AND THE SOCIALIST WORLD
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0117

Elidor Mehilli has produced a groundbreaking history of communist Albania that illuminates one of Europe's longest but least understood dictatorships. From Stalin to Mao, which is informed throughout by Mehilli's unprecedented access to previously restricted archives, captures the powerful globalism of post-1945 socialism, as well as the unintended consequences of cross-border exchanges from the Mediterranean to East Asia. After a decade of vigorous borrowing from the Soviet Union-advisers, factories, school textbooks, urban plans-Albania'...

(P/B) A BEHAVIORAL THEORY OF LABOR NEGOTIATIONS
AN ANALYSIS OF A SOCIAL INTERACTION SYSTEM
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0116

In this book, Walton and McKersie attempt to describe a comprehensive theory of labor negotiation. The authors abstract and analyze four sets of systems of activities which they believe account for much of the behavior found in labor negotiations. The first system of activities, termed "distributive bargaining," comprises competitive behaviors that are intended to influence the division of limited resources. The second system is made up of activities that increase the joint gain available to the negotiating parties, referred to as "integra...

(P/B) SATAN
THE EARLY CHRISTIAN TRADITION
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0005

Undeniably, evil exists in our world; we ourselves commit evil acts. How can one account for evil's ageless presence, its attraction, and its fruits? The question is one that Jeffrey Burton Russell addresses in his history of the concept of the Devil - the personification of evil itself. In the predecessor to this book, The Devil: Perceptions of Evil from Antiquity to Primitive Christianity, Russell traced the idea of the Devil in comparative religions and examined its development in Western thought through ancient Hebrew religion and the ...

(P/B) THE PRINCE OF DARKNESS
RADICAL EVIL AND THE POWER OF GOOD IN HISTORY
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0082

The Devil, Satan, Lucifer, Mephistopheles - throughout history the Prince of Darkness, the Western world's most powerful symbol of evil, has taken many names and shapes. Jeffrey Burton Russell here chronicles the remarkable story of the Devil from antiquity to the present. While recounting how past generations have personified evil, he deepens our understanding of the ways in which people have dealt with the enduring problem of radical evil. After a compelling essay on the nature of evil, Russell uncovers the origins of the concept of the ...

(P/B) THE DEVIL
PERCEPTIONS OF EVIL FROM ANTIQUITY TO PRIMITIVE CHRISTIANITY
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0004

"Evil - the infliction of pain upon sentient beings - is one of the most long-standing and serious problems of human existence. Frequently and in many cultures evil has been personified. This book is a history of the personification of evil, which for the sake of clarity I have called 'the Devil.' I am a medievalist, but when I began some years ago to work with the concept of the Devil in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, I came to see that I could not understand the medieval Devil except in terms of its historical antecedents. More impo...

(P/B) THE RIGHT KIND OF REVOLUTION
MODERNIZATION, DEVELOPMENT, AND U.S. FOREIGN POLICY FROM THE COLD WAR TO THE PRESENT
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0115

After World War II, a powerful conviction took hold among American intellectuals and policymakers: that the United States could profoundly accelerate and ultimately direct the development of the decolonizing world, serving as a modernizing force around the globe. By accelerating economic growth, promoting agricultural expansion, and encouraging the rise of enlightened elites, they hoped to link development with security, preventing revolutions and rapidly creating liberal, capitalist states. In The Right Kind of Revolution, Michael E. Lath...

(P/B) CONVENTIONAL DETERRENCE
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0081

"Mearsheimer offers a fine example of how defense policy analysis should be conducted. He demonstrates an excellent grasp of proportion and priority in concentrating on some of the most important yet understudied questions of deterrence and modern warfare. Why, he asks, are offensive strategies accepted or avoided by states facing the prospect of large-scale conventional war? In answering this question, Mearsheimer confronts other questions of politics and perceptions that the strategic nuclear deadlock has only accentuated. The historic a...

Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS

Barry R. Posen explores how military doctrine takes shape and the role it plays in grand strategy-that collection of military, economic, and political means and ends with which a state attempts to achieve security. His book offers both an invaluable guide for studying national strategy and a systematic comparison of two major competing theories in the field of national security studies. (from the publisher)...

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...

(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...
