(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 ...

(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...

(P/B) HARDCORE, PUNK, AND OTHER JUNK
AGGRESSIVE SOUNDS IN CONTEMPORARY MUSIC
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0030

Hardcore, Punk, and Other Junk: Aggressive Sounds in Contemporary Music, edited by Eric James Abbey and Colin Helb, is a collection of writings on music that is considered aggressive throughout the world.

(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...

(P/B) THE ECOLOGY OF MONEY
DEBT, GROWTH, AND SUSTAINABILITY
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0025

Modern economies must "grow" because money borrowed for investment can be repaid only by expanding production and consumption to meet the burden of usurious rates of interest. The roots of this dynamic between debt and growth lay in the financial revolution of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries in Britain which established a new usurious monetary system. For the first time in history credit was made widely available, but only on condition of an exponentially increasing debt burden. To pay back debts production had to inc...

(P/B) THE MICROSTATES OF EUROPE
DESIGNER NATIONS IN A POST-MODERN WORLD
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0023

The seven microstates of Europe, i.e. Andorra, Liechtenstein, Monaco, Malta, San Marino, Sovereign Order of St. John, and Vatican City are remarkable not only for their size, but their persistence. Most have been around for centuries, while much larger empires have come and gone. Despite the great events of the last two millennia, these countries have come into existence and have managed to steer a course away from incorporation within their larger neighbors. Why is this? Rather than being an exercise in triviality, the study in The Micros...

(P/B) THE IMMORTAL COMEDY
THE COMIC PHENOMENON IN ART, LITERATURE, AND LIFE
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0020

Immortal Comedy is the first book to 'think' philosophically about the comic phenomenon in general. Although author Agnes Heller had written a book that is both deeply scholarly and meditative on the subject of the comic form in film, literature, and life her writing is eminently approachable. In both its subject and style, Immortal Comedy is a seminal book. In it, Heller takes us on a journey through theories of comedy beginning with classical thought. She then detours through foundational political thinkers who refer to, for instance, la...

PUBLIC DIPLOMACY IN GLOBAL CONTEXTS
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0019

The Rhetoric of Soft Power: Public Diplomacy in Global Contexts provides a comparative assessment of public diplomacy and strategic communication initiatives in order to portray how Joseph Nye's notion of "soft power" has translated into context-specific strategies of international influence. The book examines four cases - Japan, Venezuela, China, and the United States - to illuminate the particular significance of culture, foreign publics, and communication technologies for the foreign policy ambitions of each country. This study explores...

(H/B) THE SOLUTION OF THE FIST
DOSTOEVSKY AND THE ROOTS OF MODERN TERRORISM
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0018

The first novel ever written about terrorism, Dostoevsky's The Demons is also the most instructive, for in it he addresses - better than any writer before or since - the two persistent riddles of terrorism: why are terrorists so new to our civilization, and how is it that they can kill others so easily in the name of a political idea? As a first-generation observer of terrorism, Dostoevsky came to the conclusion that this new political movement was the product ofmodern culture, politics, and psychology. He felt that modernity created a uni...

(P/B) A PENELOPEAN POETICS
REWEAVING THE FEMININE IN HOMER'S "ODYSSEY"
Εκδότης: LEXINGTON BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2656-0017

A Penelopean Poetics looks at the relationship between gender ideology and the self-referential poetics of the Odyssey through the figure of Penelope. She is a cunning story-teller; her repeated reweavings of Laertes' shroud a figurative replication of the process of oral poetic composition itself. Penelope's web is thus a discourse and it can be construed specifically as feminine. Her gendered poetics celebrates process, multiplicity, and ambiguity and it resists phallocentric discourse by undermining stable and fixed meanings. Penelope's...
