Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0005

Dante: Contemporary Perspectives gathers recent and newly commissioned articles on Dante Alighieri (1265-1321), whose epic the Divine Comedy, is one of the landmarks of world literature. The essays in this volume probe current critical assumptions about the celebrated Italian poet, literary theorist, moral philosopher, and political theorist. Dante's attitude towards poetic authority and language comes under scrutiny in several essays, while others examine his political thought and his views on women and gender. Several articles focus excl...

(P/B) CADDISFLIES
THE UNDERWATER ARCHITECTS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0028

Caddisflies constitute the insect order Trichoptera in which some 10,000 species are known in the world, including about 1400 in North America. Fossil evidence shows that caddisflies originated in the Triassic period, 200-250 million years ago. They are important links in the movement of energy and nutrients through freshwater ecosystems due largely to the extraordinary diversification in their larval architecture, which includes portable and stationary shelters, silken filter nets, and osmotically semipermeable cocoons.

(P/B) MARRIAGE AND FATHERHOOD IN THE NAZI SS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0027

From 1931 to 1945, leaders of the SS, a paramilitary group under the Nazi party, sought to transform their organization into a racially-elite family community that would serve as the Third Reich's new aristocracy. They utilized the science of eugenics to convince SS men to marry suitable wives and have many children. Marriage and Fatherhood in the Nazi SS by Amy Carney is the first work to significantly assess the role of SS men as husbands and fathers during the Third Reich. The family community, and the place of men in this community, s...

(P/B) THINKING HISTORICALLY
EDUCATING STUDENTS FOR THE 21st CENTURY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0008

Two simple but profound questions have preoccupied scholars since the establishment of history education over a century ago: what is historical thinking, and how do educators go about teaching it? In "Thinking Historically", Stephane Levesque examines these questions, focusing on what it means to think critically about the past. As students engage with a new century already characterized by global instability, uncertainty, and rivalry over claims about the past, present, and future, this study revisits enduring questions and aims to offer ...

SOCIABILITY AND HIERARCHY IN A YEMENI TOWN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0024

A significant contribution to our understanding of the varied experience of women in the Islamic Middle East, Tournaments of Value gives a careful description of a world of female socializing, and the velocity, energy, and elaborateness of this remarkable female social world. Meneley's data challenges assumptions about the cross-cultural validity of a division between household and community, between domestic and public domains. She demonstrates the fluidity of social life, the shifting nature of community organization, and in doing so pro...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0023

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0007

Lauro Martines' exhaustive search of manuscript material in the state archives of Florence is the basis for a fascinating portrayal of representative humanists of the period. The Social World of the Florentine Humanists explores the wealth, family tradition, civic prominence, and intellectual achievements of these individuals while assessing the attitudes of other Florentines towards them. Martines demonstrates that humanists tended to be wealthy educated men from important families, challenging long-held assumptions about the status of hu...

(P/B) THE ASSASSINATION OF EUROPE, 1918-1942
A POLITICAL HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0019

In this fascinating volume, renowned historian Howard M. Sachar relates the tragedy of twentieth-century Europe through an innovative, riveting account of the continent's political assassinations between 1918 and 1939 and beyond. By tracing the violent deaths of key public figures during an exceptionally fraught time period - the aftermath of World War I - Sachar lays bare a much larger history: the gradual moral and political demise of European civilization and its descent into World War II. In his famously arresting prose, Sachar traces ...

(P/B) THE ATOMISTS
LEUCIPPUS AND DEMOCRITUS - FRAGMENTS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0014

It may not be too much to say that all the work Western philosophers have done over the past two thousand years was begun by the Pre-Socratics. The Phoenix Pre-Socratic series has been instrumental in recovering Pre-Socratic texts. As with earlier works in this important series, this volume aims to make an important portion of Pre-Socratic writings accessible to all those interested in ancient philosophy and the first phase of European natural science. We now have, for the first time in English a translation of the bulk of texts concerning...

(P/B) ANAXAGORAS OF CLAZOMENAE
FRAGMENTS AND TESTIMONIA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0016

Anaxagoras of Clazomenae (circa. 500 B.C.-428 B.C.) was reportedly the first Presocratic philosopher to settle in Athens. He was a friend of Pericles and his ideas are reflected in the works of Sophocles and Aristophanes. Anaxagoras asserted that Mind is the ordering principle of the cosmos, he explained solar eclipses, and he wrote on a myriad of astronomical, meteorological, and biological phenomena. His metaphysical claim that everything is in everything and his rejection of the possibility of coming to be or passing away are fundamenta...

(P/B) THE TALE OF ALERION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0018

Guillaume de Machaut, the most important poet and musician of fourteenth-century France, had considerable influence on subsequent generations of writers in both France and England.

(H/B) THE POLITICS OF HUMOUR
LAUGHTER, INCLUSION AND EXCLUSION IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0015

The period between the First World War and the fall of the Berlin Wall is often characterized as the age of extremes - while this era witnessed unprecedented violence and loss of human life, it also saw a surge in humorous entertainment in both democratic and authoritarian societies. The Politics of Humour examines how works such as satirical magazines and comedy films were used both to reaffirm group identity and to exclude those who did not belong. The essays in this collection analyse the political and social context of comedy in Europe...

(H/B) EUROPEANIZING GREECE
THE EFFECTS OF TEN YEARS OF EU STRUCTURAL FUNDS, 1989-1999
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0843-0017

While Greece's debt crisis continues to make international headlines, the country has received remarkably little scholarly attention - especially in comparison to other European Union members. Europeanizing Greece explores the developments that resulted from Greece's European integration between 1989 and 1999, which played a crucial role in shaping the country's current conditions. Focusing on changes made to the Greek administrative and political system based on EU structural policy, Nancy A. Vamvakas contends that EU involvement was not ...
