(P/B) HISTORY BEGINS AT SUMER
THIRTY-NINE FIRSTS IN RECORDED HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0016

Which civilization had the first system of law? The first formal educational system? The first tax cut? The first love song? The answers were found in excavations of ancient Sumer, a society so developed, resourceful, and enterprising that it, in a sense, created history. The book presents a cross section of the Sumerian "firsts" in all the major fields of human endeavor, including government and politics, education and literature, philosophy and ethics, law and justice, agriculture and medicine, even love and family. History Begins at Sum...

(P/B) THE MIXED MULTITUDE
JACOB FRANK AND THE FRANKIST MOVEMENT, 1755-1816
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0050

In 1756, Jacob Frank, an Ottoman Jew who had returned to the Poland of his birth, was discovered leading a group of fellow travelers in a suspect religious service. At the request of the local rabbis, Polish authorities arrested the participants. Jewish authorities contacted the bishop in whose diocese the service had taken place and argued that since the rites of Frank's followers involved the practice of magic and immoral conduct, both Jews and Christians should condemn them and burn them at the stake. The scheme backfired, as the Franki...

(H/B) MUTUALITY
ANTHROPOLOGY'S CHANGING TERMS OF ENGAGEMENT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0049

Why do people do social-cultural anthropology? Beyond professional career motivations, what values underpin anthropologists' commitments to lengthy training, fieldwork, writing, and publication? Mutuality explores the values that anthropologists bring from their wider social worlds, including the value placed on relationships with the people they study, work with, write about and for, and communicate with more broadly. In this volume, seventeen distinguished anthropologists draw on personal and professional histories to describe avenues to...

(P/B) JEWISH MAGIC AND SUPERSTITION
A STUDY IN FOLK RELIGION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0027

Alongside the formal development of Judaism from the eleventh through the sixteenth centuries, a robust Jewish folk religion flourished - ideas and practices that never met with wholehearted approval by religious leaders yet enjoyed such wide popularity that they could not be altogether excluded from the religion. According to Joshua Trachtenberg, it is not possible truly to understand the experience and history of the Jewish people without attempting to recover their folklife and beliefs from centuries past. Jewish Magic and Superstition ...

(P/B) HOLY WAR, MARTYRDOM, AND TERROR
CHRISTIANITY, VIOLENCE, AND THE WEST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0041

Holy War, Martyrdom, and Terror examines the ways that Christian theology has shaped centuries of conflict from the Jewish-Roman War of late antiquity through the First Crusade, the French Revolution, and up to the Iraq War. By isolating one factor among the many forces that converge in war-the essential tenets of Christian theology-Philippe Buc locates continuities in major episodes of violence perpetrated over the course of two millennia. Even in secularized or explicitly non-Christian societies, such as the Soviet Union of the Stalinist...

(P/B) MIDDLE EASTERN TERRORISM
FROM BLACK SEPTEMBER TO SEPTEMBER 11
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0042

Since the first airplane hijacking by the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine in September 1970, Middle Eastern terrorists have sacrificed innocent human lives in the name of ideology. From Black September to the Munich Olympics, to the embassy bombing in Beirut, to the devastating attacks of September 11 and beyond, terrorism has emerged as the most important security concern of our time. "Where did this come from?" Inspired by a student's question on the morning of September 11, 2001, Mark Ensalaco has written a thoroughly rese...

(P/B) PHILOSOPHY OF EXISTENCE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0001

IN THIS LITTLE BOOK Karl Jaspers provides one of the best short statements of both the main features of his own philosophy and his ideas about the nature and importance of philosophical thought in human life. Since he had just been dismissed from his university position by the Nazis, the lectures of 1937 which gave rise to this volume were his last opportunity for public statement for several years. They were delivered six years after the appearance of his Philosophie. Although his gigantic Von der Wahrheit (On Truth) was not to be publish...

(P/B) THE FOURTH CRUSADE
THE CONQUEST OF CONSTANTINOPLE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0048

On August 15, 1199, Pope Innocent III called for a renewed effort to deliver Jerusalem from the Infidel, but the Fourth Crusade had a very different outcome from the one he preached. Proceeding no further than Constantinople, the Crusaders sacked the capital of eastern Christendom and installed a Latin ruler on the throne of Byzantium. This revised and expanded edition of The Fourth Crusade gives fresh emphasis to events in Byzantium and the Byzantine response to the actions of the Crusaders. Included in this edition is a chapter on the sa...

(H/B) IMMIGRATION, ISLAM, AND THE POLITICS OF BELONGING IN FRANCE
A COMPARATIVE FRAMEWORK
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0047

Over the past three decades, neither France's treatment of Muslims nor changes in French, British, and German immigration laws have confirmed multiculturalist hopes or postnationalist expectations. Yet analyses positing unified national models also fall short in explaining contemporary issues of national and cultural identity. Immigration, Islam, and the Politics of Belonging in France: A Comparative Framework presents a more productive, multifaceted view of citizenship and nationality. Political scientist Elaine R. Thomas casts new light ...

(H/B) AFTER EUROPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0046

In this provocative book, renowned public intellectual Ivan Krastev reflects on the future of the European Union-and its potential lack of a future. With far-right nationalist parties on the rise across the continent and the United Kingdom planning for Brexit, the European Union is in disarray and plagued by doubts as never before. Krastev includes chapters devoted to Europe's major problems (especially the political destabilization sparked by the more than 1.3 million migrants from the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia), the sprea...

(H/B) A HISTORIAN IN EXILE
SOLOMON IBN VERGA, "SHEVET YEHUDAH," AND THE JEWISH-CHRISTIAN ENCOUNTER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0044

Solomon ibn Verga was one of the victims of the decrees expelling the Jews from Spain and Portugal in the 1490s, and his Shevet Yehudah (The Scepter of Judah, ca. 1520) numbered among the most popular Hebrew books of the sixteenth century. Its title page lured readers and buyers with a promise to relate "the terrible events and calamities that afflicted the Jews while in the lands of non-Jewish peoples": blood libels, disputations, conspiracies, evil decrees, expulsions, and more. The book itself preserves collective memories, illuminates ...

(H/B) THE NEW POLITICAL ISLAM
HUMAN RIGHTS, DEMOCRACY, AND JUSTICE. BY EMMANUEL KARAGIANNIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0045

Islamist political parties and groups are on the rise throughout the Muslim world and in Muslim communities in the West. Owing largely to the threat of terrorism, political Islam is often portrayed as a monolithic movement embodying fundamentalism and theocracy, an image magnified by the rise of populism and xenophobia in the United States and Europe. Reality, however, is far more complicated. Political Islam has evolved considerably since its spectacular rise decades ago, and today it features divergent viewpoints and contributes to discr...

(P/B) THE PAST IN PIECES
BELONGING IN THE NEW CYPRUS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0037

On April 23, 2003, to the surprise of much of the world, the ceasefire line that divides Cyprus opened. The line had partitioned the island since 1974, and so international media heralded the opening of the checkpoints as a historic event that echoed the fall of the Berlin Wall. As in the moment of the Wall's collapse, cameras captured the rush of Cypriots across the border to visit homes unwillingly abandoned three decades earlier. It was a euphoric moment, and one that led to expectations of reunification. But within a year Greek Cypriot...

(P/B) ABC OF ARCHITECTURE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0043

ABC of Architecture is an accessible, nontechnical introduction to architectural structure, history, and criticism. Author James F. Gorman moves seamlessly from a discussion of the most basic inspiration for architecture (the need for shelter from the elements), to an exploration of space, system, and material, and, finally, to an examination of the language and history of architecture. He shows the nonspecialist how to read a design in plans, sections, and elevations, and how architects, like other artists, make creative use of space and ...

(H/B) WAR IS COMING
BETWEEN PAST AND FUTURE VIOLENCE IN LEBANON
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0039

From 1975 to 1990, Lebanon experienced a long war involving various national and international actors. The peace agreement that followed and officially propelled the country into a "postwar" era did not address many of the root causes of war, nor did it hold main actors accountable. Instead, a politics of "no victor, no vanquished" was promoted, in which the political elite agreed simply to consign the war to the past. However, since then, Lebanon has found itself still entangled in various forms of political violence, from car bombings an...

(H/B) BOIOTIA IN THE FOURTH CENTURY B.C.
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0040

The region of Boiotia was one of the most powerful regions in Greece between the Peloponnesian War and the rise of Macedonian power under Philip II and Alexander the Great. Its influence stretched across most of the Greek mainland and, at times, across the Aegean; its fourth-century leaders were of legendary ability. But the Boiotian hegemony over Greece was short lived, and less than four decades after the Boiotians defeated the Spartans at the battle of Leuktra in 371 B.C., Alexander the Great destroyed Thebes, Boiotia's largest city, an...

(P/B) THE ANCIENT MYSTERIES
A SOURCEBOOK OF SACRED TEXTS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0004

Zeus and the other gods of shining Olympus were in reality divine only by popular consent. Over the course of time Olympian luster diminished in favor of religious experiences more immediate to the concerns of people living in an increasingly cosmopolitan ancient world. These experiences were provided by the mysteries, religions that flourished particularly during the Hellenistic period and were secretly practiced by groups of adherents who decided, through personal choice, to be initiated into the profound realities of one deity or anothe...

(H/B) LANDSCAPES OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD
ARCHAEOLOGY, HISTORY AND ETHNOGRAPHY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0038

Islamic societies of the past have often been characterized as urban, with rural and other extra-urban landscapes cast in a lesser or supporting role in the studies of Islamic history and archaeology. Yet throughout history, the countryside was frequently an engine of economic activity, the setting for agricultural and technological innovation, and its inhabitants were frequently agents of social and political change. The Islamic city is increasingly viewed in the context of long and complex processes of urban development. Archaeological e...

(H/B) THE NEXT ECONOMIC DISASTER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0033

Current debates about economic crises typically focus on the role that public debt and debt-fueled public spending play in economic growth. This illuminating and provocative work shows that it is the rapid expansion of private rather than public debt that constrains growth and sparks economic calamities like the financial crisis of 2008. Relying on the findings of a team of economists, credit expert Richard Vague argues that the Great Depression of the 1930s, the economic collapse of the past decade, and many other sharp downturns around t...

(H/B) ON THE DOORSTEP OF EUROPE
ASYLUM AND CITIZENSHIP IN GREECE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0842-0035

Greece has shouldered a heavy burden in the global economic crisis, struggling with political and financial insecurity. Greece has also the most porous external border of the European Union, tasked with ensuring that the EU's boundaries are both "secure and humanitarian" and hosting enormous numbers of migrants and asylum seekers who arrive by land and sea. The recent leadership and fiscal crises have led to a breakdown of legal entitlements for both Greek citizens and those seeking refuge within the country's borders. On the Doorstep of E...
