PAST AND PRESENT
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0150

(P/B) ANARCHISTS OF CASAS VIEJAS
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0035

Jerome R. Mintz's classic study of the lives of Andalusian campesinos who were swept up by one of the 20th century's pivotal social movements provided a new framework for understanding the tragic events that tilted Spain toward civil war. In a new foreword, James W. Fernandez reflects on the fieldwork that led to the book and its contribution to subsequent developments in the ethnography of Europe and the historiography of modern Spain. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) RADICAL HERMENEUTICS
REPETITION, DECONSTRUCTION, AND THE HERMENEUTIC PROJECT
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0146

Radical Hermeneutics forges a closer collaboration between hermeneutics and deconstruction than has previously been attempted. For John D. Caputo, hermeneutics means radical thinking without transcendental justification: attending to the ruptures and irregularities in existence before the metaphysics of presence has a chance to smooth over them....

(P/B) BEING AND TRUTH
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0125

In these lectures, delivered in 1933-1934 while he was Rector of the University of Freiburg and an active supporter of the National Socialist regime, Martin Heidegger addresses the history of metaphysics and the notion of truth from Heraclitus to Hegel. First published in German in 2001, these two lecture courses offer a sustained encounter with Heidegger's thinking during a period when he attempted to give expression to his highest ambitions for a philosophy engaged with politics and the world. While the lectures are strongly nationalisti...

CLIMATE REFUGEES IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0145

In the coming decades, rising sea levels, heavier storms, and drought and desertification will force hundreds of millions of people from their homes-and even their countries. Where will they go? What rights will they have? Who will take care of them? Over 200 million Asians are at risk. Picture shrinking coastlines in Pakistan, India, and China and border skirmishes over access to shared rivers and farmable land.

Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0127

First published in German in 1995, volume 77 of Heidegger's Complete Works consists of three imaginary conversations written as World War II was coming to an end. Composed at a crucial moment in history and in Heidegger's own thinking, these conversations present meditations on science and technology; the devastation of nature, the war, and evil; and the possibility of release from representational thinking into a more authentic relation with being and the world. The first conversation involves a scientist, a scholar, and a guide walking t...

(P/B) AT THE MIND'S LIMITS
CONTEMPLATIONS BY A SURVIVOR ON AUSCHWITZ AND ITS REALITIES
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0147

At the Mind's Limits is the story of one man's incredible struggle to understand the reality of horror. In five autobiographical essays, Amery describes his survival - mental, moral, and physical - through the enormity of the Holocaust. Above all, this masterful record of introspection tells of a young Viennese intellectual's fervent vision of human nature and the betrayal of that vision. (From the publisher) "These are pages that one reads with almost physical pain...all the way to its stoic conclusion." - Primo Levi "The testimony of ...

(P/B) THE MUSICAL IDEA AND THE LOGIC, TECHNIQUE, AND ART OF ITS PRESENTATION
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0049

The Gedanke manuscripts, from which The Musical Idea is compiled, are legendary writings of Arnold Schoenberg. Central to his concern was his concept of the "musical idea," which represents the wholeness of the musical work and embraces Schoenberg's notions of motive, gestalt, phrase, theme, rhythm, harmony, and form. Ultimately, the musical idea is the vision of the composer by which a musical work achieves unity in relation to the means by which the work is comprehended in its unity by the listener.

(P/B) PLAYING ON THE EDGE
SADOMASOCHISM, RISK, AND INTIMACY
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0140

Representations of consensual sadomasochism range from the dark, seedy undergrounds of crime thrillers to the fetishized pornographic images of sitcoms and erotica. In this pathbreaking book, ethnographer Staci Newmahr delves into the social space of a public, pansexual SM community to understand sadomasochism from the inside out. Based on four years of in-depth and immersive participant observation, she juxtaposes her experiences in the field with the life stories of community members, providing a richly detailed portrait of SM as a socia...

(P/B) LONG AWAITED WEST
EASTERN EUROPE SINCE 1944
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0139

What is Eastern Europe and why is it so culturally and politically separate from the rest of Europe? In Long Awaited West, Stefano Bottoni considers what binds these countries together in an increasingly globalized world. Focusing on economic and social policies, Bottoni explores how Eastern Europe developed and, more importantly, why it remains so distant from the rest of the continent. He argues that this distance arises in part from psychological divides which have only deepened since the global economic crisis of 2008, and provides new...

(P/B) THE FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS OF METAPHYSICS
WORLD, FINITUDE, SOLITUDE
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0024

This book, the text of Martin Heidegger's lecture course of 1929/30, is crucial for an understanding of Heidegger's transition from the major work of his early years, Being and Time, to his later preoccupations with language, truth, and history. First published in German in 1983 as volume 29/30 of Heidegger's collected works, The Fundamental Concepts of Metaphysics presents an extended treatment of the history of metaphysics and an elaboration of a philosophy of life and nature. Heidegger's concepts of organism, animal behavior, and enviro...

(P/B) PARMENIDES
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0043

Parmertides, a lecture course delivered by Martin Heidegger at the University of Freiburg during the winter semester of 1942-1943, presents a highly original interpretation of ancient Greek philosophy. A major contribution to Heidegger's provocative dialogue with the pre-Socratics, the book challenges some of the most firmly established notions about Greek thinking and the Greek world. The central theme is the question of truth and the primordial understanding of truth to be found in Parmenides' "didactic poem." Heidegger highlights the co...

In 2016, Britain stunned itself and the world by voting to pull out of the European Union, leaving financial markets reeling and global politicians and citizens in shock.

In A History of Britain: 1945 to the Brexit, award-winning historian Jeremy Black reexamines modern British history, considering the social changes, economic strains, and cultural and political upheavals that brought Britain to Brexit.

(P/B) CITADEL TO CITY - STATE
THE TRANSFORMATION OF GREECE, 1200-700 B.C.E.
Εκδότης: INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2161-0008

The "Dark Age" of Greece is one of the least understood periods of Greek history. A terra incognita between the Mycenaean civilization of Late Bronze Age Greece and the flowering of Classical Greece, the Dark Age was, until the last few decades, largely neglected. The neglect can be explained partly by the fact that the disruptions that brought down the Mycenaean civilization left a landscape seemingly devoid not only of large population centers but in many places of any population at all. And the Dark Age is dark, in large part, because i...

This is counterbalanced by insightful thematic discussion of the perennial issues involved... Altogether, an excellent study of a vital dimension of Russia's historical evolution." - Slavonic and East European Review "... the first connected account of Moscow's assertion of military and political control over its steppe frontier.
