C.P. CAVAFY: COLLECTED POEMS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0188

C. P. Cavafy (1863-1933) lived in relative obscurity in Alexandria, and a collected edition of his poems was not published until after his death. Now, however, he is regarded as the most important figure in twentieth-century Greek poetry, and his poems are considered among the most powerful in modern European literature. This revised bilingual edition of Collected Poems offers the reader the original Greek texts facing what are now recognized as the standard English translations of Cavafy's poetry. It is this translation that best captures...

(P/B) 1177 B.C.
THE YEAR CIVILIZATION COLLAPSED
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0648

In 1177 B.C., marauding groups known only as the "Sea Peoples" invaded Egypt. The pharaoh's army and navy managed to defeat them, but the victory so weakened Egypt that it soon slid into decline, as did most of the surrounding civilizations. After centuries of brilliance, the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end. Kingdoms fell like dominoes over the course of just a few decades. No more Minoans or Mycenaeans. No more Trojans, Hittites, or Babylonians. The thriving economy and cultures of the late second m...

(P/B) DESIGN WITH CLIMATE
BIOCLIMATIC APPROACH TO ARCHITECTURAL REGIONALISM (NEW AND EXPANDED EDITION)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0694

Architects today incorporate principles of sustainable design as a matter of necessity. But the challenge of unifying climate control and building functionality, of securing a managed environment within a natural setting--and combating the harsh forces of wind, water, and sun--presented a new set of obstacles to architects and engineers in the mid-twentieth century. First published in 1963, Design with Climate was one of the most pioneering books in the field and remains an important reference for practitioners, teachers, and students, ove...

(P/B) THE NATURE OF SPACE AND TIME
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0466

Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined? In The Nature of Space and Time, two of the world's most famous physicists - Stephen Hawking (A Brief History of Time) and Roger Penrose (The Road to Reality) - debate these questions. The au...

(P/B) TIME AND POWER
VISIONS OF HISTORY IN GERMAN POLITICS, FROM THE THIRTY YEARS' WAR TO THE THIRD REICH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0701

This groundbreaking book presents new perspectives on how the exercise of power is shaped by different notions of time. Acclaimed historian Christopher Clark draws on four key figures from German history-Friedrich Wilhelm of Brandenburg-Prussia, Frederick the Great, Otto von Bismarck, and Adolf Hitler-to look at history through a temporal lens and ask how historical actors and their regimes embody unique conceptions of time. Elegantly written and boldly innovative, Time and Power reveals the connection between political power and the disti...

(H/B) THE SPECTRE OF WAR
INTERNATIONAL COMMUNISM AND THE ORIGINS OF WORLD WAR II
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0702

The Spectre of War looks at a subject we thought we knew-the roots of the Second World War-and upends our assumptions with a masterful new interpretation. Looking beyond traditional explanations based on diplomatic failures or military might, Jonathan Haslam explores the neglected thread connecting them all: the fear of Communism prevalent across continents during the interwar period. Marshalling an array of archival sources, including records from the Communist International, Haslam transforms our understanding of the deep-seated origins ...

(H/B) SYRIAN REQUIEM
THE CIVIL WAR AND ITS AFTERMATH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0703

Leaving almost half a million dead and displacing an estimated twelve million people, the Syrian Civil War is a humanitarian catastrophe of unimaginable scale. Syrian Requiem analyzes the causes and course of this bitter conflict-from its first spark in a peaceful Arab Spring protest to the tenuous victory of the Asad dictatorship-and traces how the fighting has reduced Syria to a crisis-ridden vassal state with little prospect of political reform, national reconciliation, or economic reconstruction. Israel's chief negotiator with Syria du...

(P/B) THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE
A SHORT HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0704

The Holy Roman Empire emerged in the Middle Ages as a loosely integrated union of German states and city-states under the supreme rule of an emperor, and would endure until its dissolution in 1806 during the Napoleonic Wars. Barbara Stollberg-Rilinger provides a concise history of the empire, presenting an interpretation of its unique political culture and remarkably durable institutions. In a narrative spanning three turbulent centuries, Stollberg-Rilinger shows how it was a political body unlike any other, bound together by personal loya...

(P/B) A SERIES OF FORTUNATE EVENTS
CHANCE AND THE MAKING OF THE PLANET, LIFE, AND YOU
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0685

Why is the world the way it is? How did we get here? Does everything happen for a reason or are some things left to chance? Philosophers and theologians have pondered these questions for millennia, but startling scientific discoveries over the past half century are revealing that we live in a world driven by chance. A Series of Fortunate Events tells the story of the awesome power of chance and how it is the surprising source of all the beauty and diversity in the living world. Like every other species, we humans are here by accident. But ...

(P/B) DREAMS
FROM VOLUMES 4,8,12 AND 16 OF THE COLLECTED WORKS OF C.G. JUNG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0419

Dream analysis is a distinctive and foundational part of analytical psychology, the school of psychology founded by C. G. Jung and his successors. This volume collects Jung's most insightful contributions to the study of dreams and their meaning. The essays in this volume, written by Jung between 1909 and 1945, reveal Jung's most essential views about dreaming--especially regarding the relationship between language and dream. Through these studies, Jung grew to understand that dreams are themselves a language, a language through which the ...

(P/B) THE ORIGINAL FOLK AND FAIRY TALES OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM
THE COMPLETE FIRST EDITION TRANSLATED AND EDITED BY JACK ZIPES, ILLUSTRATED BY ANDREA DEZSO
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0586

When Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published their Children's and Household Tales in 1812, followed by a second volume in 1815, they had no idea that such stories as "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Gretel," and "Cinderella" would become the most celebrated in the world. Yet few people today are familiar with the majority of tales from the two early volumes, since in the next four decades the Grimms would publish six other editions, each extensively revised in content and style. For the very first time, The Original Folk and Fairy Tales of the Brothers G...

(P/B) ON MERCY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0696

Since antiquity, mercy has been regarded as a virtue. Yet by the end of the eighteenth century, mercy had been exiled from political life. In this book, Malcolm Bull analyses and challenges the Enlightenment's rejection of mercy. Political realism, Bull argues, demands recognition of the foundational role of mercy in society. If we are vulnerable to harm from others, we are in need of their mercy. By restoring the primacy of mercy over justice, we may constrain the powerful and release the agency of the powerless. An important contribution...

(H/B) HOW TO TELL A JOKE
AN ANCIENT GUIDE TO THE ART OF HUMOR
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0697

Can jokes win a hostile room, a hopeless argument, or even an election? You bet they can, according to Cicero, and he knew what he was talking about. One of Rome's greatest politicians, speakers, and lawyers, Cicero was also reputedly one of antiquity's funniest people. After he was elected commander-in-chief and head of state, his enemies even started calling him "the stand-up Consul." How to Tell a Joke provides a lively new translation of Cicero's essential writing on humor alongside that of the later Roman orator and educator Quintilia...

(H/B) HOW TO KEEP AN OPEN MIND
AN ANCIENT GUIDE TO THINKING LIKE A SKEPTIC
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0698

Along with Stoicism and Epicureanism, Skepticism is one of the three major schools of ancient Greek philosophy that claim to offer a way of living as well as thinking. How to Keep an Open Mind provides an unmatched introduction to skepticism by presenting a fresh, modern translation of key passages from the writings of Sextus Empiricus, the only Greek skeptic whose works have survived. While content in daily life to go along with things as they appear to be, Sextus advocated-and provided a set of techniques to achieve-a radical suspension ...

(P/B) SICK SOULS, HEALTHY MINDS
HOW WILLIAM JAMES CAN SAVE YOUR LIFE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0699

In 1895, William James, the father of American philosophy, delivered a lecture entitled "Is Life Worth Living?" It was no theoretical question for James, who had contemplated suicide during an existential crisis as a young man a quarter century earlier. Indeed, as John Kaag writes, "James's entire philosophy, from beginning to end, was geared to save a life, his life"-and that's why it just might be able to save yours, too. Sick Souls, Healthy Minds is an absorbing introduction to James's life and thought that shows why the founder of prag...

ON THE MODERN QUEST FOR CONTENTMENT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0700

We live in an age of unprecedented prosperity, yet everywhere we see signs that our pursuit of happiness has proven fruitless. Dissatisfied, we seek change for the sake of change-even if it means undermining the foundations of our common life. In Why We Are Restless, Benjamin and Jenna Storey offer a profound and beautiful reflection on the roots of this malaise and examine how we might begin to cure ourselves. Drawing on the insights of Montaigne, Pascal, Rousseau, and Tocqueville, Why We Are Restless explores the modern vision of happine...

(P/B) THE PSYCHOLOGY OF KUNDALINI YOGA
NOTES OF THE SEMINAR GIVEN IN 1932
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0106

Jung's seminar on Kundalini yoga, presented to the Psychological Club in Zurich in 1932, has been widely regarded as a milestone in the psychological understanding of Eastern thought and of the symbolic transformations of inner experience. Kundalini yoga presented Jung with a model for the developmental phases of higher consciousness, and he interpreted its symbols in terms of the process of individuation. With sensitivity toward a new generation's interest in alternative religions and psychological exploration, Sonu Shamdasani has brought...

(P/B) THE HUMOR OF KIERKEGAARD
AN ANTHOLOGY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3244-0153

Who might reasonably be nominated as the funniest philosopher of all time? With this anthology, Thomas Oden provisionally declares S?ren Aabye Kierkegaard (1813-1855)--despite his enduring stereotype as the melancholy, despairing Dane--as, among philosophers, the most amusing. Kierkegaard not only explored comic perception to its depths but also practiced the art of comedy as astutely as any writer of his time. This collection shows how his theory of comedy is integrated into his practice of comic perception, and how both are integral to h...
