(P/B) SAPPHO
A NEW TRANSLATION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0343

These hundred poems and fragments constitute virtually all of Sappho that survives and effectively bring to life the woman whom the Greeks consider to be their greatest lyric poet. Mary Barnard's translations are lean, incisive, direct-the best ever published. She has rendered the beloved poet's verses, long the bane of translators, more authentically than anyone else in English. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) ALEXANDER THE GREAT AND THE LOGISTICS OF THE MACEDONIAN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0118

The most important work on Alexander the Great to appear in a long time. Neither scholarship nor semi-fictional biography will ever be the same again... Engels at last uses all the archaeological work done in Asia in the past generation and makes it accessible... Careful analyses of terrain, climate, and supply requirements are throughout combined in a masterly fashion to help account for Alexander's strategic decision in the light of the options open to him... The chief merit of this splendid book is perhaps the way in which it brings an ...

(P/B) TECHNICIANS OF THE SACRED
A RANGE OF POETRIES FROM AFRICA, AMERICA, ASIA, EUROPE, AND OCEANIA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0345

Hailed by Robert Creeley as "both a deeply useful book and an unequivocal delight" and by the LA Times Book Review as one of the hundred most recommended American books of the late 20th century, Jerome Rothenberg's landmark anthology Technicians of the Sacred has educated and inspired generations of poets, artists, musicians, and other readers, exposing them to the multiple possibilities of poetry throughout the world. Juxtaposing "primitive" and archaic works of art from many cultures with each other and with avant-garde and experimental ...

(P/B) OZU
HIS LIFE AND FILMS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0286

The Japanese continue, ten years after his death, to think of Yasujiro Ozu as the most Japanese of all their directors. This does not mean he is their favorite, though he has been given more official honor than any other. It means that he is regarded as a kind of spokesman; Ozu, one is told, "had the real Japanese flavor." This "Japanese flavor" has a more definite meaning than, say, "the American way" or "the French touch" if only because Japan remains so intensely conscious of its own Japaneseness. Modern civilization, only a century old...

(P/B) PSYCHIATRY AND ITS DISCONTENTS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0344

Written by one of the world's most distinguished historians of psychiatry, Psychiatry and Its Discontents provides a wide-ranging and critical perspective on the profession that dominates the treatment of mental illness. Andrew Scull traces the rise of the field, the midcentury hegemony of psychoanalytic methods, and the paradigm's decline with the ascendance of biological and pharmaceutical approaches to mental illness. The book's historical sweep is broad, ranging from the age of the asylum to the rise of psychopharmacology and the dubio...

(P/B) FROM AFRO-CUBAN RHYTHMS TO LATIN JAZZ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0091

This book explores the complexity of Cuban dance music and the webs that connect it, musically and historically, to other Caribbean music, to salsa, and to Latin Jazz. Establishing a scholarly foundation for the study of this music, Raul A. Fernandez introduces a set of terms, definitions, and empirical information that allow for a broader, more informed discussion. He presents fascinating musical biographies of prominent performers Cachao Lo'pez, Mongo Santamari'a, Armando Peraza, Patato Valde's, Francisco Aguabella, Ca'ndido Camero, Choc...

(P/B) THE MWINDO EPIC FROM THE BANYANGA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0337

A dynamic translation of the timeless African epic. The feats of the hero Mwindo are glorified in this epic work, sung and narrated in a Bantu language and acted out by a member of the Nyanga tribe in the remote forest regions of what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Beautifully structured and richly poetic, the epic is in prose form, interspersed with song and proverbs in verse. As an example of the classic tradition of oral folk literature, the tale provides profound insights into the social structure, values, and cosmology o...

(P/B) RAMAYANA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0338

An elegant translation of the beloved epic tale of Prince Rama Few works of literature have inspired so vast an audience across so many radically different languages and cultures as the Ramayana, written in Sanskrit over 2,000 years ago by a poet known to us as Valmiki. William Buck has retold the story of Prince Rama-with all its nobility of spirit, courtly intrigue, heroic renunciation, fierce battles, and triumph of good over evil-in a length and with a style that make the great epic accessible without compromising the spirit and lyrici...

(P/B) MAHABHARATA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0339

Few works in world literature have inspired so vast an audience in nations with radically different languages and cultures as the Mahabharata. Written some 2,000 years ago and probably the longest Indian epic ever composed, it is a story of dynastic struggle that culminates in a fatal clash between two branches of a single ruling family. It is a moral and philosophical tale as well as a historical one. In his introduction, Sanskritist B. A. van Nooten notes that apart from William Buck's rendition no other English version has been able to ...

CONCLUSIONS AND CONVERSATIONS OF CONFUCIUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0340

A fresh translation of one of the most recognized texts of the premodern world: The Analects is a must-read for those interested in China's past, present, and future. This new translation by renowned East Asian scholar Moss Roberts offers a fresh interpretation of this classic work, sharpening and clarifying Confucius's positions on ethics, politics, and social organization. While no new edition of The Analects will wholly transform our understanding of Confucius's teachings, Roberts's translation attends to the many nuances in the text t...

(P/B) THE HISTORY OF THE CHURCH
A NEW TRANSLATION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0341

Eusebius's groundbreaking History of the Church, remains the single most important source for the history of the first three centuries of Christianity and stands among the classics of Western literature. His iconic story of the church's origins, endurance of persecution, and ultimate triumph-with its cast of martyrs, heretics, bishops, and emperors-has profoundly shaped the understanding of Christianity's past and provided a model for all later ecclesiastical histories. This new translation, which includes detailed essays and notes, comes ...

(P/B) THREE KINGDOMS
A HISTORICAL NOVEL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0342

Three Kingdoms tells the story of the fateful last reign of the Han dynasty (206 B.C.-A.D. 220), when the Chinese empire was divided into three warring kingdoms. Writing some twelve hundred years later, the Ming author Luo Guanzhong drew on histories, dramas, and poems portraying the crisis to fashion a sophisticated, compelling narrative that has become the Chinese national epic. This abridged edition captures the novel's intimate and unsparing view of how power is wielded, how diplomacy is conducted, and how wars are planned and fought. ...

(P/B) INSIDE THE WHITE CUBE
THE IDEOLOGY OF THE GALLERY SPACE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0162

When these essays first appeared in Artforum in 1976, their impact was immediate. They were discussed, annotated, cited, collected, and translated - the three issues of Artforum in which they appeared have become nearly impossible to obtain. Having Brian O'Doherty's provocative essays available again is a signal event for the art world. This edition also includes "The Gallery as Gesture," a critically important piece published ten years after the others. O'Doherty was the first to explicitly confront a particular crisis in postwar art as h...

(P/B) DOWNCAST EYES - THE DENIGRATION OF VISION IN TWENTIETH-CEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0048

Long considered "the noblest of the senses," vision has increasingly come under critical scrutiny by a wide range of thinkers who question its dominance in Western culture. These critics of vision, especially prominent in twentieth-century France, have challenged its allegedly superior capacity to provide access to the world. They have also criticized its supposed complicity with political and social oppression through the promulgation of spectacle and surveillance. Martin Jay turns to this discourse surrounding vision and explores its oft...

(P/B) PAINTING WITH LIGHT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0281

Few cinematographers have had as decisive an impact on the cinematic medium as John Alton. Best known for his highly stylized film noir classics T-Men, He Walked by Night, and The Big Combo, Alton earned a reputation during the 1940s and 1950s as one of Hollywood's consummate craftsmen through his visual signature of crisp shadows and sculpted beams of light. No less renowned for his virtuoso color cinematography and deft appropriation of widescreen and Technicolor, he earned an Academy Award in 1951 for his work on the musical An American...

(P/B) ESSAYS ON MUSIC
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0336

Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969), one of the principal figures associated with the Frankfurt School, wrote extensively on culture, modernity, aesthetics, literature, and-more than any other subject-music. To this day, Adorno remains the single most influential contributor to the development of qualitative musical sociology which, together with his nuanced intertextual readings of musical works, gives him broad claim as a continuing force in the study of music. This long-awaited collection of twenty-seven essays represents the full range of Ad...

(P/B) EUROPE AND THE PEOPLE WITHOUT HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0290

Offering insight and equal consideration into the societies of the "civilized" and "uncivilized" world, Europe and the People Without History deftly explores the historical trajectory of so-called modern globalization. In this foundational text about the development of the global political economy, Eric R. Wolf challenges the long-held anthropological notion that non-European cultures and peoples were isolated and static entities before the advent of European colonialism and imperialism. Ironically referred to as "the People Without Histor...

THE MISSING SCIENCE OF MEN'S REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0333

What is healthy sperm or the male biological clock? This book details why we don't talk about men's reproductive health and how this lack shapes reproductive politics today. For more than a century, the medical profession has made enormous efforts to understand and treat women's reproductive bodies. But only recently have researchers begun to ask basic questions about how men's health matters for reproductive outcomes, from miscarriage to childhood illness. What explains this gap in knowledge, and what are its consequences? Rene Almeling ...
