Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0724

This gripping book traces the evolution of brainwashing from its beginnings in torture and religious conversion into the age of neuroscience and social media.

(P/B) BODY, MEMORY, AND ARCHITECTURE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0090

As teachers of architectural design, Kent Bloomer and Charles Moore have attempted to introduce architecture from the standpoint of how buildings are experienced, how the affect individuals and communities emotionally and provide us with a sense of joy, identity, and place. In giving priority to these issues and in questioning the professional reliance on abstract two-dimensional drawings, they often find themselves in conflict with a general and undebated assumption that architecture is a highly specialized system with a set of prescribed...

(P/B) ARABS
A 3,000-YEAR HISTORY OF PEOPLES, TRIBES AND EMPIRES
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0725

This kaleidoscopic book covers almost 3,000 years of Arab history and shines a light on the footloose Arab peoples and tribes who conquered lands and disseminated their language and culture over vast distances. Tracing this process to the origins of the Arabic language, rather than the advent of Islam, Tim Mackintosh-Smith begins his narrative more than a thousand years before Muhammad and focuses on how Arabic, both spoken and written, has functioned as a vital source of shared cultural identity over the millennia. Mackintosh-Smith reveal...

(H/B) GILGAMESH
A NEW TRANSLATION OF ANCIENT EPIC
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0726

Gilgamesh is a Babylonian epic from three thousand years ago, which tells of King Gilgamesh's deep love for the wild man Enkidu and his pursuit of immortality when Enkidu dies. It is a story about love between men, loss and grief, the confrontation with death, the destruction of nature, insomnia and restlessness, finding peace in one's community, the voice of women, the folly of gods, heroes, and monsters-and more.

(P/B) THE HELL-FIRE CLUBS
SEX, SATANISM AND SECRET SOCIETIES
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0592

The Hell-Fire Clubs scandalized eighteenth-century English society. Rumors of their orgies, recruitment of prostitutes, extensive libraries of erotica, extreme rituals, and initiation ceremonies circulated widely at the time, only to become more sensational as generations passed. This thoroughly researched book sets aside the exaggerated gossip about the secret Hell-Fire Clubs and brings to light the first accurate portrait of their membership (including John Wilkes, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, and the Prince of Wales), beliefs, activ...

(H/B) OF FEAR AND STRANGERS
A HISTORY OF XENOPHOBIA
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0722

Over the last few years, it has been impossible to ignore the steady resurgence of xenophobia. The European migrant crisis and immigration from Central America to the United States have placed Western advocates of globalization on the defensive, and a 'New Xenophobia' seems to have emerged out of nowhere. In this fascinating study, George Makari traces the history of xenophobia from its origins to the present day. Often perceived as an ancient word for a timeless problem, 'xenophobia' was in fact only coined a century ago, tied to heated a...

A HISTORY OF THE FIRST ARAB-ISRAELI WAR
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0595

This history of the foundational war in the Arab-Israeli conflict is groundbreaking, objective, and deeply revisionist. A riveting account of the military engagements, it also focuses on the war's political dimensions. Benny Morris probes the motives and aims of the protagonists on the basis of newly opened Israeli and Western documentation. The Arab side - where the archives are still closed - is illuminated with the help of intelligence and diplomatic materials. Morris stresses the jihadi character of the two-stage Arab assault on the Je...

300 BC - AD 700
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0626

This masterful history of the monumental architecture of Alexandria, as well as of the rest of Egypt, encompasses an entire millennium - from the city's founding by Alexander the Great in 331 B.C. to the years just after the Islamic conquest of A.D. 642. Long considered lost beyond recall, the architecture of ancient Alexandria has until now remained mysterious. But here Judith McKenzie shows that it is indeed possible to reconstruct the city and many of its buildings by means of meticulous exploration of archaeological remains, written so...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0704

Winner of the 2018 Yale Series of Younger Poets prize How can a search for self-knowledge reveal art as a site of community?

(P/B) MEDIAEVAL GREECE
Εκδότης: YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4218-0708

The history of Greece between the collapse of the Roman Empire and the birth of the modern Greek state is for most people an historical blank. Specialist studies are not lacking, but unlike the other Mediterranean lands that have been the subject of many recent books, there has been no general history of mediaeval Greece published in English since 1908. This book is an attempt to fill the gap. The history of Greece in this period offers a long series of human dramas played out among clashes and contrasts between races, cultures, and religi...
