(P/B) AKIRA KUROSAWA & INTERTEXTUAL CINEMA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0028

In Akira Kurosawa and Intertextual Cinema, James Goodwin draws on contemporary theoretical and critical approaches to explore the Japanese director's use of a variety of texts to create films that are uniquely intertextual and intercultural. Surveying all of Kurosawa's films and examining six films in depth - The Idiot, The Lower Depths, Rashomon, Ikiru, Throne of Blood, and Ran - Goodwin finds in Kurosawa's themes and techniques the capacity to restructure perceptions of Western and Japanese cultures and to establish new meanings in each....

(P/B) THE THEBAN PLAYS
OEDIPUS THE KING, OEDIPUS AT COLONUS, ANTIGONE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0129

Sophocles' Theban Plays - Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone - lie at the core of the Western literary canon. They are extensively translated, universally taught, and frequently performed. Chronicling the downfall of Oedipus, the legendary king of Thebes, and his descendants, the Theban Plays are as relevant to present-day thought about love, duty, patriotism, family, and war as when they were written 2,500 years ago. Recent translations of the plays, while linguistically correct, often fail to capture the beauty of Sophocl...

(P/B HOW NATO ADAPTS
STRATEGY AND ORGANIZATION IN THE ATLANTIC ALLIANCE SINCE 1950
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0164

Today's North Atlantic Treaty Organization, with nearly thirty members and a global reach, differs strikingly from the alliance of twelve created in 1949 to "keep the Americans in, the Russians out, and the Germans down." These differences are not simply the result of the Cold War's end, 9/11, or recent twenty-first-century developments but represent a more general pattern of adaptability first seen in the incorporation of Germany as a full member of the alliance in the early 1950s. Unlike other enduring post-World War II institutions that...

(P/B) THE GRAND STRATEGY OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0040

At the height of its power, the Roman Empire encompassed the entire Mediterranean basin, extending much beyond it from Britain to Mesopotamia, from the Rhine to the Black Sea. Rome prospered for centuries while successfully resisting attack, fending off everything from overnight robbery raids to full-scale invasion attempts by entire nations on the move. How were troops able to defend the Empire's vast territories from constant attacks? And how did they do so at such moderate cost that their treasury could pay for an immensity of highways,...

(P/B) MANDARINS OF THE FUTURE
MODERNIZATION THEORY IN COLD WAR AMERICA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0171

Because it provided the dominant framework for "development" of poor, postcolonial countries, modernization theory ranks among the most important constructs of twentieth-century social science. In Mandarins of the Future: Modernization Theory in Cold War America Nils Gilman offers the first intellectual history of a movement that has had far-reaching and often unintended consequences. After a survey of the theory's origins and its role in forming America's postwar sense of global mission, Gilman offers a close analysis of the people who di...

(P/B) BEYOND MADNESS
THE PAIN AND POSSIBILITIES OF SERIOUS MENTAL ILLNESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0169

Reveals proven solutions for bettering the lives of people with serious mental illness, their families, and their communities. Leading scientist and gifted storyteller Rachel A. Pruchno, PhD, was shocked to encounter misinformation, ignorance, and intolerance when she sought to help her daughter, newly diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Turning to the scientific literature, Dr. Pruchno eventually found solutions, but she realized many others would need help to understand the highly technical writing and conflicting findings. In Beyond Madnes...

(P/B) DIGNITY FOR DEEPLY FORGETFUL PEOPLE
HOW CAREGIVERS CAN MEET THE CHALLENGES OF ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0170

For caregivers of deeply forgetful people: a book that combines new ethics guidelines with an innovative program on how to communicate and connect with people with Alzheimer's. How do we approach a "deeply forgetful" loved one so as to notice and affirm their continuing self-identity? For three decades, Stephen G. Post has worked around the world encouraging caregivers to become more aware of-and find renewed hope in-surprising expressions of selfhood despite the challenges of cognitive decline. In this book, Post offers new perspectives ...

(H/B) QUANTUM STEAMPUNK
THE PHYSICS OF YESTERDAY'S TOMORROW
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0168

The Industrial Revolution meets the quantum-technology revolution! A steampunk adventure guide to how mind-blowing quantum physics is transforming our understanding of information and energy. Victorian era steam engines and particle physics may seem worlds (as well as centuries) apart, yet a new branch of science, quantum thermodynamics, reenvisions the scientific underpinnings of the Industrial Revolution through the lens of today's roaring quantum information revolution. Classical thermodynamics, understood as the study of engines, energ...

(P/B) FINANCING THE ATHENIAN FLEET
PUBLIC TAXATION AND SOCIAL RELATIONS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0166

To meet the enormous expenses of maintaining its powerful navy, democratic Athens gave wealthy citizens responsibility for financing and commanding the fleet. Known as trierarchs-literally, ship commanders-they bore the expenses of maintaining and repairing the ships, as well as recruiting and provisioning their crews. The trierarchy grew into a powerful social institution that was indispensable to Athens and primarily responsible for the city's naval prowess in the classical period. Financing the Athenian Fleet is the first full-length st...

(P/B) THE ACT OF READING
A THEORY OF AESTHETIC RESPONSE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0077

"A splendid theoretical companion to Iser's The Implied Reader. The earlier book drew much attention for its reader-centered practical criticism of narrative fiction from Bunyan on. The new volume explains Iser's phenomenological technique... This book belongs in every serious, up-to-date literature collection." - Library Journal. What happens when we read something? Is the text before us a documentary record of something that exists or has existed before, or is it a reformulation of an already formulated reality, to be broken down and re...

(P/B) MATHEMATICS IN TWENTIETH-CENTURY LITERATURE AND ART
CONTENT, FORM, MEANING
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0165

During the twentieth century, many artists and writers turned to abstract mathematical ideas to help them realize their aesthetic ambitions. Man Ray, Marcel Duchamp, and, perhaps most famously, Piet Mondrian used principles of mathematics in their work. Was it mere coincidence, or were these artists simply following their instincts, which in turn were ruled by mathematical underpinnings, such as optimal solutions for filling a space? If math exists within visual art, can it be found within literary pursuits? In short, just what is the rela...

(P/B) ICELANDIC
GRAMMAR, TEXT AND GLOSSARY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0123

This classic book on the Icelandic language was written to aid the military, the businessman, the traveler, or any foreign resident in Iceland. Originally published in 1945, the grammar gives reliable information on pronunciation, inflexions, and syntax of the language. The texts are partly grammatical exercises for the beginner, partly colloquial dialogues, or descriptions of customs and manners in Iceland-town and country. The geography and nature of the country is also discussed and elucidated with maps and drawings. (From the publisher...

(P/B) PROBLEMS OF DEMOCRATIC TRANSITION AND CONSOLIDATION
SOUTHERN EUROPE, SOUTH AMERICA AND POST-COMMUNIST EUROPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0141

Since their classic volume The Breakdown of Democratic Regimes was published in 1978, Juan J. Linz and Alfred Stepan have increasingly focused on the questions of how, in the modern world, nondemocratic regimes can be eroded and democratic regimes crafted. In Problems of Democratic Transition and Consolidation, they break new ground in numerous areas. They reconceptualize the major types of modern nondemocratic regimes and point out for each type the available paths to democratic transition and the tasks of democratic consolidation. They a...

(P/B) HISTORY OF MY LIFE (VOLUMES 9-10)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0021

Giacomo Casanova was born in Venice in 1725. His parents, both actors, wanted him to become a priest, but their hopes were dashed when, at sixteen, he was expelled from seminary for immoral misconduct. Probably best-known for his reputation as a womanizer, Casanova was in turn a secretary, a soldier in the Venetian army, a preacher, an alchemist, a gambler, a violinist, a lottery director, and a spy. He translated Homer's Iliad into Italian and collaborated with Da Ponte on the libretto for Mozart's Don Giovanni. He retired in 1785 to the ...

(P/B) TIME TRAVEL
A WRITER'S GUIDE TO THE REAL SCIENCE OF PLAUSIBLE TIME TRAVEL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0119

From H.G. Wells to Isaac Asimov to Ursula K. Le Guin, time travel has long been a favorite topic and plot device in tales of science fiction and fantasy. But as any true SF fan knows, astounding stories about traversing alternate universes and swimming the tides of time demand plausible science. That's just what Paul J. Nahin's guide provides. An engineer, physicist, and published science fiction writer, Nahin is uniquely qualified to explain the ins and outs of how to spin such complex theories as worm holes, singularity, and relativity i...

(P/B) SHIPS AND SEAMANSHIP IN THE ANCIENT WORLD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0138

Lionel Casson's encyclopedic study is the first of its kind to use underwater archaeological data to refine and area of scholarship that had, for the most part, relied on ancient texts and graphic representations. Tracing the history of early ships and seamanship from pre-dynastic Egypt to the Roman empire, from skiffs and barges to huge oared warships and royal yachts, Casson describes not only the ships themselves, but also the make-up and training of the crews, placement of weaponry, how cargo was stored, methods of navigation, harbor f...

Winner of the Computer History Museum Prize of the Special Interest Group: Computers, Information, and Society. Imagine biology and medicine today without computers. What would laboratory work be like if electronic databases and statistical software did not exist? Would disciplines like genomics even be feasible if we lacked the means to manage and manipulate huge volumes of digital data? How would patients fare in a world absent CT scans, programmable pacemakers, and computerized medical records? Today, computers are a critical component ...

(P/B) GENERAL PSYCHOPATHOLOGY (VOLUME ONE)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0126

In 1910, Karl Jaspers wrote a seminal essay on morbid jealousy in which he laid the foundation for the psychopathological phenomenology that through his work and the work of Hans Gruhle and Kurt Schneider, among others, would become the hallmark of the Heidelberg school of psychiatry. In General Psychopathology, his most important contribution to the Heidelberg school, Jaspers critiques the scientific aspirations of psychotherapy, arguing that in the realm of the human, the explanation of behavior through the observation of regularity and ...
