(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 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 ...

(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) 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 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?

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...

(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) REPRESENTING THE HOLOCAUST
HISTORY, THEORY, TRAUMA
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0102

Defying comprehension, the tragic history of the Holocaust has been alternately repressed and canonized in postmodern Western culture. Recently our interpretation of the Holocaust has been the center of bitter controversies, from debates over Paul de Man's collaborationist journalism and Martin Heidegger's Nazi past to attempts by some historians to downplay the Holocaust's significance. A major voice in current historiographical discussions, Dominick LaCapra brings a new clarity to these issues as he examines the intersections between his...

(P/B) ARIADNE'S THREAD
A GUIDE TO INTERNATIONAL STORIES IN CLASSICAL LITERATURE
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0099

From Cinderella to The Boy Who Cried Wolf to The Dragon Slayer to the Judgment of Solomon, certain legends, myths, and folktales are part of the oral tradition in countries around the world. In addition to their pervasiveness, these stories show an astonishing longevity; many such tales are found in classical antiquity. Ariadne's Thread is an encyclopedia of more than a hundred such international oral tales, all present in the literature of ancient Greece and Rome. It takes into account writings, including early Jewish and Christian litera...

(P/B) THE MIRROR, THE WINDOW, AND THE TELESCOPE
HOW RENAISSANCE LINEAR PERSPECTIVE CHANGED OUR VISION OF THE UNIVERSE
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0098

In The Mirror, the Window, and the Telescope, Samuel Y. Edgerton brings fresh insight to a subject of perennial interest to the history of art and science in the West: the birth of linear perspective. Edgerton retells the fascinating story of how perspective emerged in early fifteenth-century Florence, growing out of an artistic and religious context in which devout Christians longed for divine presence in their daily lives. And yet, ironically, its discovery would have a profound effect not only on the history of art but on the history of...

(H/B) HOW CHINA ESCAPED THE POVERTY TRAP
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0097

Before markets opened in 1978, China was an impoverished planned economy governed by a Maoist bureaucracy. In just three decades it evolved into the world's second-largest economy and is today guided by highly entrepreneurial bureaucrats. In How China Escaped the Poverty Trap, Yuen Yuen Ang explains this astonishing metamorphosis. Rather than insist that either strong institutions of good governance foster markets or that growth enables good governance, Ang lays out a new, dynamic framework for understanding development broadly. Successful...

(P/B) FRANZ LISZT (VOLUME 3)
THE FINAL YEARS, 1861-1886
Εκδότης: CORNELL UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3978-0094

The third volume in Alan Walker's magisterial biography of Franz Liszt. "You can't help but keep turning the pages, wondering how it will all turn out: and Walker's accumulated readings of Liszt's music have to be taken seriously indeed." - D. Kern Holoman, New York Review of Books "A conscientious scholar passionate about his subject. Mr. Walker makes the man and his age come to life. These three volumes will be the definitive work to which all subsequent Liszt biographies will aspire." - Harold C. Schonberg, Wall Street Journal "What ...

(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 ...
