(P/B) VENICE
THE HINGE OF EUROPE, 1081-1797
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0368

In this magisterial history, National Book Award winner William H. McNeill chronicles the interactions and disputes between Latin Christians and the Orthodox communities of eastern Europe during the period 1081-1797. Concentrating on Venice as the hinge of European history in the late medieval and early modern period, McNeill explores the technological, economic, and political bases of Venetian power and wealth, and the city's unique status at the frontier between the papal and Orthodox Christian worlds. He pays particular attention to Ven...

(P/B) ON COMMUNICATION AND SOCIAL INFLUENCE
SELECTED PAPERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0441

Gabriel Tarde ranks as one of the most outstanding sociologists of nineteenth-century France, though not as well known by English readers as his peers Comte and Durkheim. This book makes available Tarde's most important work and demonstrates his continuing relevance to a new generation of students and thinkers. Tarde's landmark research and empirical analysis drew upon collective behavior, mass communications, and civic opinion as elements to be explained within the context of broader social patterns. Unlike the mass society theorists that...

(H/B) LOVE POEMS BY PEDRO SALINAS
MY VOICE BECAUSE OF YOU - LETTER POEMS TO KATHERINE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0480

When Pedro Salinas's 1933 collection of love poems, La voz a ti debida, was introduced to American audiences in Willis Barnstone's 1975 English translation, it was widely regarded as the greatest sequence of love poems written by a man or a woman, in any language, in the twentieth century. Now, seventy-five years after its publication, the reputation of the poems and its multifaceted writer remains untarnished. A portrait of their era, the poems, from a writer in exile from his native civil war-torn Spain, now reemerge in our time. In this...

(P/B) THE OLDEST CUISINE IN THE WORLD
COOKING IN MESOPOTAMIA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0533

In this intriguing blend of the commonplace and the ancient, Jean Bottero presents the first extensive look at the delectable secrets of Mesopotamia. Bottero's broad perspective takes us inside the religious rites, everyday rituals, attitudes and taboos, and even the detailed preparation techniques involving food and drink in Mesopotamian high culture during the second and third millennia BCE, as the Mesopotamians recorded them. Offering everything from translated recipes for pigeon and gazelle stews, the contents of medicinal teas and b...

(H/B) SELECTED PHILOSOPHICAL POEMS OF TOMMASO CAMPANELLA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0407

A contemporary of Giordano Bruno and Galileo, Tommaso Campanella (1568-1639) was a controversial philosopher, theologian, astrologer, and poet who was persecuted during the Inquisition and spent much of his adult life imprisoned because of his heterodox views. He is best known today for two works: The City of the Sun, a dialogue inspired by Plato's Republic, in which he prophesies a vision of a unified, peaceful world governed by a theocratic monarchy; and his well-meaning Defense of Galileo, which may have done Galileo more harm than good...

(P/B) KNOSSOS AND THE PROPHETS OF MODERNISM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0453

In the spring of 1900, British archaeologist Arthur Evans began to excavate the palace of Knossos on Crete, bringing ancient Greek legends to life just as a new century dawned amid far-reaching questions about human history, art, and culture. With Knossos and the Prophets of Modernism, Cathy Gere relates the fascinating story of Evans's excavation and its long-term effects on Western culture. After the World War I left the Enlightenment dream in tatters, the lost paradise that Evans offered in the concrete labyrinth - pacifist and matriarc...

(P/B) IMAGINING RELIGION
FROM BABYLON TO JONESTOWN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0312

With this influential book of essays, Jonathan Z. Smith has pointed the academic study of religion in a new theoretical direction, one neither theological nor willfully ideological. Making use of examples as apparently diverse and exotic as the Maori cults in nineteenth-century New Zealand and the events of Jonestown, Smith shows that religion must be construed as conventional, anthropological, historical, and as an exercise of imagination. In his analyses, religion emerges as the product of historically and geographically situated human ...

(H/B) ISLAM AND THE WEST - A CONVERSATION WITH JACQUES DERRIDA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0340

In the spring of 2003, Jacques Derrida sat down for a public debate in Paris with Algerian intellectual Mustapha Cherif. The eminent philosopher arrived at the event directly from the hospital where he had just been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, the illness that would take his life just over a year later. That he still participated in the exchange testifies to the magnitude of the subject at hand: the increasingly distressed relationship between Islam and the West, and the questions of freedom, justice, and democracy that surround it. ...

(P/B) MORAL POLITICS
HOW LIBERALS AND CONSERVATIVES THINK
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0024

When Moral Politics was first published two decades ago, it redefined how Americans think and talk about politics through the lens of cognitive political psychology. Today, George Lakoff's classic text has become all the more relevant, as liberals and conservatives have come to hold even more vigorously opposed views of the world, with the underlying assumptions of their respective worldviews at the level of basic morality. Even more so than when Lakoff wrote, liberals and conservatives simply have very different, deeply held beliefs about...

(P/B) MORE THAN COOL REASON: FIELD GUIDE TO POETIC METAPHOR
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0343

The authors restore metaphor to our lives by showing us that it's never gone away. We've merely been taught to talk as if it had: as though weather maps were more 'real' than the breath of autumn; as though, for that matter, Reason was really 'cool.' What we're saying whenever we say is a theme this book illumines for anyone attentive. In this bold and powerful book, Lakoff and Turner continue their use of metaphor to show how our minds get hold of the world. They have achieved nothing less than a postmodern Understanding Poetry, a new way...

(P/B) THE GROWTH OF MEDIEVAL THEOLOGY (600-1300)
THE CHRISTIAN TRADITION (VOLUME 3)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0532

This book is based on a most meticulous examination of medieval authorities and the growth of medieval theology is essentially told in their own words. What is more important, however, then the astounding number of primary sources the author has consulted or his sovereign familiarity with modern studies on his subject, is his ability to discern form and direction in the bewildering growth of medieval Christian doctrine, and, by thoughtful emphasis and selection, to show the pattern of that development in a lucid and persuasive narrative.

(P/B) HOW TO STAGE GREEK TRAGEDY TODAY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0302

From the stages of Broadway and London to university campuses, Paris, and the bourgeoning theaters of Africa, Greek tragedy remains constantly in production. This global revival, in addition to delighting audiences, has highlighted both the promise and the pitfalls of staging ancient masterpieces in the modern age. Addressing the issues and challenges these performances pose, renowned classicist Simon Goldhill responds here to the growing demand for a comprehensive guide to staging Greek tragedy today. In crisp and spirited prose, Goldhill...

(P/B) LEARNING TO EAT SOUP WITH A KNIFE
COUNTERINSURGENCY LESSONS FROM MALAYA AND VIETNAM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0361

Invariably, armies are accused of preparing to fight the previous war. In Learning to Eat Soup with a Knife, Lieutenant Colonel John A. Nagl-a veteran of both Operation Desert Storm and the current conflict in Iraq-considers the now-crucial question of how armies adapt to changing circumstances during the course of conflicts for which they are initially unprepared. Through the use of archival sources and interviews with participants in both engagements, Nagl compares the development of counterinsurgency doctrine and practice in the Malayan...

(P/B) THE INTELLIGIBILITY OF NATURE
HOW SCIENCE MAKES SENSE OF THE WORLD
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0182

Throughout the history of the Western world, science has possessed an extraordinary amount of authority and prestige. And while its pedestal has been jostled by numerous evolutions and revolutions, science has always managed to maintain its stronghold as the knowing enterprise that explains how the natural world works: we treat such legendary scientists as Galileo, Newton, Darwin, and Einstein with admiration and reverence because they offer profound and sustaining insight into the meaning of the universe. In "The Intelligibility of Nature...

(P/B) DARWIN'S CATHEDRAL
EVOLUTION, RELIGION AND THE NATURE OF SOCIETY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0530

One of the great intellectual battles of modern times is between evolution and religion. Until now, they have been considered completely irreconcilable theories of origin and existence. David Sloan Wilson's Darwin's Cathedral takes the radical step of joining the two, in the process proposing an evolutionary theory of religion that shakes both evolutionary biology and social theory at their foundations. The key, argues Wilson, is to think of society as an organism, an old idea that has received new life based on recent developments in evol...

(P/B) MIXED EMOTIONS
BEYOND FEAR AND HATRED IN INTERNATIONAL CONFLICT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0498

In recent years, it's become increasingly clear that emotion plays a central role in global politics. For example, people readily care about acts of terrorism and humanitarian crises because they appeal to our compassion for human suffering. These struggles also command attention where social interactions have the power to produce or intensify the emotional responses of those who participate in them. From passionate protests to poignant speeches, Andrew A. G. Ross analyzes high-emotion events with an eye to how they shape public sentiment ...

(P/B) THE BROKEN WORLD OF SACRIFICE
ESSAY ON ANCIENT INDIAN RITUAL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0531

In this book, J. C. Heesterman attempts to understand the origins and nature of Vedic sacrifice-the complex compound of ritual practices that stood at the center of ancient Indian religion. Paying close attention to anomalous elements within both the Vedic ritual texts, the brahmanas, and the ritual manuals, the srautasutras, Heesterman reconstructs the ideal sacrifice as consisting of four moments: killing, destruction, feasting, and contest. He shows that Vedic sacrifice all but exclusively stressed the offering in the fire-the element o...

(P/B) THE COLLABORATOR
THE TRIAL AND EXECUTION OF ROBERT BRASILLACH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0529

On February 6, 1945, Robert Brasillach was executed for treason by a French firing squad. He was a writer of some distinction-a prolific novelist and a keen literary critic. He was also a dedicated anti-Semite, an acerbic opponent of French democracy, and editor in chief of the fascist weekly Je Suis Partout, in whose pages he regularly printed wartime denunciations of Jews and resistance activists. Was Brasillach in fact guilty of treason? Was he condemned for his denunciations of the resistance, or singled out as a suspected homosexual? ...
