(P/B) FEMINIST ECOCRITICISM
ENVIRONMENT, WOMEN, AND LITERATURE
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0043

Feminist Ecocriticism examines the interplay of women and nature as seen through literary theory and criticism, drawing on insights from such diverse fields as chaos theory and psychoanalysis, while examining genres ranging from nineteenth-century sentimental literature to contemporary science fiction.

(P/B) GOOD TROUBLE
HOW DEVIANTS, CRIMINALS, HERETICS, AND OUTSIDERS HAVE CHANGED THE WORLD FOR THE BETTER
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0040

This book is written in praise of the criminal; a unique kind of criminal, who is motivated not by personal gain, but ethical altruism. Deviant heroes are those individuals who violate unjust norms and laws, facing the repercussions of social control, effecting positive social change in the process. Using a method that examines how the biographies of individual deviants intersected with history, it probes how criminals and deviants have been on the leading edge of important, positive social changes and the creation of a more just, fair, an...

(P/B) BAUDELAIRE CONTRA BENJAMIN
A CRITIQUE OF POLITICIZED AESTHETICS AND CULTURAL MARXISM
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0041

This book offers the first sustained argument against the philosophy of Walter Benjamin and his readings of Charles Baudelaire. More broadly, it is also a critique of politicized aesthetics and cultural Marxism, of which Benjamin is a pioneering and emblematic figure. Cristaudo and Beibei argue that Baudelaire was not mistaken in refusing to subject aesthetics to morality and politics. Baudelaire's refusal was based on the recognition that existential matters, such as sickness, evil, death, sexual longing, melancholy, and beauty itself - a...

(P/B) PATRIARCHY AND THE POLITICS OF BEAUTY
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0042

Political philosophers from the beginning of history have articulated the significance of beauty. Allan D. Cooper argues that these writings are coded to justify patriarchal structures of power, and that each epoch of global history has reflected a paradigm of beauty that rationalizes protocols of gender performance. Patriarchy is a system of knowledge that trains men to become soldiers but is now being challenged by human rights advocates and women's rights activists. (From the publisher)...

THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF U.S. NEWSROOMS
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0039

This book will be of interest to scholars of communication, journalism, and...

GLOBALIZATION, ALTERNATIVE MODERNITIES, AND DEMOCRACIES
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0038

In recent years there has been an upsurge of interest in Turkey's ability to create a secular, constitutional democracy within a predominantly Muslim population. Remaking Turkey provides a comprehensive and detailed account of how Turkey has achieved the possibility of modernity and democracy in a Muslim social setting as well as the important problems and challenges confronting this achievement. Turkey has demonstrated that as an alternative modernity and as a significant historical experience of the co-existence between Islam and democra...

(H/B) UNAMUNO AND KIERKEGAARD
PATHS TO SELFHOOD IN FICTION
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0037

Miguel de Unamuno was profoundly influenced by Soren Kierkegaard's pseudonymous works at a time when Kierkegaard was virtually unknown in Southern Europe. This book explores the scope and character of that influence, clarifies misconceptions in the relationship between the authors, and offers an original, Kierkegaardian reading of three of Unamuno's best known novels: Niebla, San Manuel Bueno, m?rtir, and Abel Sanchez. Both authors hold a "self as achievement" view in which the authentic self is seen as the result of the choices one makes ...

COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVES
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0036

The Portuguese case study will be used to illustrate how political parties evolve and the main differences in the trajectory experienced by parties in old democracies. Therefore, starting from the main theoretical contributions used to study party change, this book examines some key dimensions of the role played by political parties: ideologic...

(P/B) ARCHAEOLOGY IN SITU
SITES, ARCHAEOLOGY, AND COMMUNITIES IN GREECE
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0005

This volume explores the ways local communities perceive, experience, and interact with archaeological sites in Greece, as well as with the archaeologists and government officials who construct and study such places. In so doing, it reveals another side to sites that have been revered as both birthplace of Western civilization and basis of the modern Greek nation. The conceptual terrain of those who live near such sites is complex and furrowed with ambivalence, confusion, and resentment. For many local residents, these sites are gated encl...

(H/B) SCIENTISM AND TECHNOCRASY IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
THE LEGACY OF SCIENTIFIC MANAGEMENT
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0033

Scientism, or the application of methods, attitudes, and concepts drawn from the natural sciences to human activities and social policy formation, is a pervasive feature of modern life, and it is one which has immense impact upon virtually all aspects of our private and public lives. This work explores the impact of Scientific Management, a movement initiated at the beginning of the twentieth century by the mechanical engineer, Frederick Winslow Taylor, in spreading scientistic attitudes through its appropriation by technical experts (tech...

(P/B) GLOBALIZING SOUTHEASTERN EUROPE
EMIGRANTS, AMERICA, AND THE STATE SINCE THE LATE NINETEENTH CENTURY
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0032

At the end of the nineteenth century, Southeastern Europe became a prime sending region of emigrants to overseas countries, in particular the United States. This massive movement of people ended in 1914 but remained consequential long thereafter, as emigration had created networks, memories, and attitudes that shaped social and political practices in Southeastern Europe long after the emigrants had left. This book's main concern is to reconstruct the political and socioeconomic impact of emigration on Southeastern Europe. In contrast to mi...

(P/B) GETTING PAST CAPITALISM
HISTORY, VISION, HOPE
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0021

Getting Past Capitalism begins with a critique of the impacts of capitalism on human society and the environment. It looks in new ways at what capitalism is and at how it is reproduced. That investigation opens the door to fresh ways of looking at how to challenge it. Cynthia Kaufman looks at some fundamental questions about how capitalism comes to look like a system that is unbeatable, and how people come to have desires that work to reinforce capitalism. Kaufman uses this analysis to develop ideas about how to challenge capitalism. She a...

(P/B) DEMOCRACY AND LEADERSHIP
ON PRAGMATISM AND VIRTUE
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0024

Democracy and Leadership: On Pragmatism and Virtue presents a theory of leadership drawing on insights from Plato's Republic, while abandoning his authoritarianism in favor of John Dewey's democratic thought. The book continues the democratic turn for the study of leadership beyond the incorporation of democratic values into old-fashioned views about leading. The completed democratic turn leaves behind the traditional focus on a class of special people. Instead, leadership is understood as a process of judicious yet courageous guidance, in...

(P/B) STATENESS AND SOVEREIGN DEBT
GREECE IN THE EUROPEAN CONUNDRUM
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0026

This book examines the present crisis of Greece's political economy as a crisis of stateness, tackling the domestic as well as the international dimensions. It represents the first attempt by Greek academics to put forward a theoretically-informed, interdisciplinary analysis of Greece's fiscal, economic, and political crisis. The approach aims to fill a major gap, combining insights from comparative politics, political economy, international relations theory, and legal-institutional analysis, in a theoretically informed account of the Gree...

(P/B) PHILOSOPHY AND KAFKA
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0027

The relationship of philosophy with Kafka's oeuvre is complex. It has been argued that Kafka's novels and stories defy philosophic extrapolation; conversely, it has also been suggested that precisely the tendency of Kafka's writings to elude discursive solution is itself a philosophical tendency, one that is somehow contributing to a wiser relationship of human beings with language. These matters are the focus of the proposed volume on Philosophy and Kafka. The proposed collection brings together essays that interrogate the relationship o...

From local underground bands in Detroit, Michigan to bands in Puerto Rico or across Europe, this book demonstrates the importance of aggressive music in our society.

(P/B) HIP-HOP WITHIN AND WITHOUT THE ACADEMY
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0029

Hip-hop's historical nature as a mouthpiece for marginalized peoples provides a platform for its universal-appeal and contemporary relevancy. Moreover, hip-hop culture's affirmation of a pedagogy of liberation has great potential not only to address many current issues in educational contexts, but also to create more egalitarian ambitions in western public schools.

(P/B) HIP HOP'S INHERITANCE
FROM THE HARLEM RENAISSANCE TO THE HIP HOP FEMINIST MOVEMENT
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0028

Hip Hop's Inheritance arguably offers the first book-length treatment of what hip hop culture has, literally, 'inherited' from the Harlem Renaissance, the Black Arts movement, the Feminist Art movement, and 1980s and 1990s postmodern aesthetics. By comparing and contrasting the major motifs of the aforementioned cultural aesthetic traditions with those of hip hop culture, all the while critically exploring the origins and evolution of black popular culture from antebellum America through to "Obama's America," Hip Hop's Inheritance demonstr...
