(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) CINEMA AND EXPERIENCE
SIEGFRIED KRACAUER, WALTER BENJAMIN, AND THEODOR W. ADORNO
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0303

Siegfried Kracauer, Walter Benjamin, and Theodor W. Adorno - affiliated through friendship, professional ties, and argument - developed an astute philosophical critique of modernity in which technological media played a key role. This book explores in depth their reflections on cinema and photography from the Weimar period up to the 1960s. Miriam Bratu Hansen brings to life an impressive archive of known and, in the case of Kracauer, less known materials and reveals surprising perspectives on canonic texts, including Benjamin's artwork ess...

(P/B) A BRIEF HISTORY OF FASCIST LIES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0346

In this short companion to his book From Fascism to Populism in History, world-renowned historian Federico Finchelstein explains why fascists regarded simple and often hateful lies as truth, and why so many of their followers believed the falsehoods. Throughout the history of the twentieth century, many supporters of fascist ideologies regarded political lies as truth incarnated in their leader. From Hitler to Mussolini, fascist leaders capitalized on lies as the base of their power and popular sovereignty. This history continues in the pr...

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 ...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0347

By combining their expertise in English literature and anthropology, Ibrahim Muhawi and Sharif Kanaana bring to these folktales an integral method of study that unites a sensitivity to language with a deep appreciation for culture. As native Palestinians, the authors are well suited to their task. Over the course of several years, they collected tales from the regions of the Galilee, Gaza, and the West Bank, determining which were the most widely known and appreciated and selecting the ones that best represent the Palestinian Arab folk nar...

THE FILMS OF ANA MENDIETA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0350

Born to a prominent family in Havana but exiled to the United States as a girl, Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) is regarded as one of the most significant artists of the postwar era. During her too-brief career, she produced a distinctive body of work that includes drawings, installations, performances, photographs, and sculptures. Less well known is her remarkable and prolific production of films. This richly illustrated catalogue presents a series of sequential color stills from each of twenty-one original Super 8 films that have been newly pre...

(P/B) RULE OF EXPERTS
EGYPT, TECHNO-POLITICS, MODERNITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0349

Can one explain the power of global capitalism without attributing to capital a logic and coherence it does not have? Can one account for the powers of techno-science in terms that do not merely reproduce its own understanding of the world? Rule of Experts examines these questions through a series of interrelated essays focused on Egypt in the twentieth century. These explore the way malaria, sugar cane, war, and nationalism interacted to produce the techno-politics of the modern Egyptian state; the forms of debt, discipline, and violence ...

(H/B) PICTURES FOR USE AND PLEASURE
VERNACULAR PAINTING IN HIGH QING CHINA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0265

In this groundbreaking book, James Cahill expands the field of Chinese pictorial art history, opening both scholarly studies and popular appreciation to vernacular paintings, "pictures for use and pleasure". These were works commissioned and appreciated during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries by the non-elites of Chinese society, including women. Traditional Chinese collectors, like present-day scholars of Chinese painting, have favored the "literati" paintings of the Chinese male elite, disparaging vernacular works, often intended...

(P/B) THE GREEKS AND THE IRRATIONAL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0216

In this philosophy classic, which was first published in 1951, E. R. Dodds takes on the traditional view of Greek culture as a triumph of rationalism. Using the analytical tools of modern anthropology and psychology, Dodds asks, "Why should we attribute to the ancient Greeks an immunity from 'primitive' modes of thought which we do not find in any society open to our direct observation?" Praised by reviewers as "an event in modern Greek scholarship" and "a book which it would be difficult to over-praise," THE GREEKS AND THE IRRATIONAL was ...

(P/B) THE GRECO-PERSIAN WARS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0992-0030

This is a reissue, with a new introduction and an update to the bibliography, of the original edition, published in 1970 as The Year of Salamis in England and as Xerxes at Salamis in the U.S. The long and bitter struggle between the great Persian Empire and the fledgling Greek states reached its high point with the extraordinary Greek victory at Salamis in 480 B.C. The astonishing sea battle banished forever the specter of Persian invasion and occupation. Peter Green brilliantly retells this historic moment, evoking the whole dramatic swee...

(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) 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

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...

Establishing a scholarly foundation for the study of this music, Raul A.

A dynamic translation of the timeless African epic.

(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.

(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 ...
