Title: How Things Count as the Same: Memory, Mimesis, and Metaphor
Date of Publication: December 3, 2018
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 978-0190888718

“Seligman and Weller use the seemingly simple question ‘What counts as the same?’ to take us into a deep examination of the interrelationship between culture and the human mind. Their analysis of memory, mimesis, and metaphor as distinctly different and essential processes is most convincing. The breadth of examples points to the remarkable erudition of these two authors. A tour de force that is an important read for scholars across the humanities, social and cognitive sciences.” –Christopher Winship, Diker-Tishman Professor of Sociology, Harvard University

Date of Publication: October 31, 2018
Publisher: University of Hawaii Press
ISBN: 978-0824873752

Modern Kyoto is a stellar work of research and an important contribution to a number of fields, including Japanese history, architecture, and urbanism. I know of no other English-language work that addresses Kyoto urbanism and its relationship to imperial presentation in the modern era. It is sui generis and has no comparands.” –Yukio Lippit, Harvard University

Title: Children of the Silent Majority: Young Voters and the Rise of the Republican Party, 1968-1980
Date of Publication: October 26, 2018
Publisher: University Press of Kansas
ISBN:  978-0700627011

“For too long pundits have dismissed the ‘silent majority’ who voted for Nixon, Reagan, and Trump as old, white malcontents. This remarkable book puts that condescending myth to rest. Blumenthal describes how conservatives organized young voters to support policies of law and order, Christian evangelism, and foreign policy interventionism in the shadow of 1968. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the arc of contemporary politics and changing the future course of American society.”–Jeremi Suri, author of The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office

Date of Publication: September 16, 2018
Publisher: Rowman & Littlefield International
ISBN: 978-1783484645

“The magician from Messkirch at the height of his early pedagogical powers, spellbindingly deconstructing the history of Western metaphysics and reconstructing Kant’s first Critique, the most important philosophical work since Plato’s Republic. Long quietly influential on both Heidegger and Kant scholarship, Heidegger’s fascinating work is finally available in a clear and compelling English translation that does justice to the original, thanks to the meticulous efforts of Reid and Crowe.” —Iain Thomson, University of New Mexico

ISBN: 978-1433829277

“Stefan Hofmann and Stacey Doan have done a fantastic job of synthesizing contemporary understanding of emotions, elegantly weaving together research findings from cognitive, affective, social and developmental psychology with clinical science.  The Social Foundations of Emotion is broad and fresh, and will be a valuable resource for academics and clinicians, and also for lay people who explore this important topic.” —Joseph LeDoux, author of Anxious, Synaptic Self, and The Emotional Brain

Author: Abigail Gillman [CAS]
Title: A History of German Jewish Bible Translation
Date of Publication: April 27, 2018
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
ISBN: 978-0226477725

“Abigail Gillman’s work is a major scholarly achievement, indeed probably the most comprehensive study to date of the 170-year tradition of Jewish Bible translations into German. Gillman’s history is at the same time an important contribution to our understanding of the unique German-Jewish encounter in modernity, that is, of the philosophical, literary, cultural, and linguistic junction that brought to the world the likes of Moses Mendelssohn, Karl Marx, Sigmund Freud, Else Lasker-Schüler, Franz Kafka, Walter Benjamin, Gershom Scholem, Nelly Sachs, and Paul Celan, to name only a few luminaries. I am hard pressed to think of another book that brings together such a thorough consideration of Biblical translation across languages and cultures.” –Amir Eshel, Stanford University

Author: Benjamin Siegel [CAS]
Title: Hungry Nation: Food, Famine, and the Making of Modern India
Date of Publication: April 26, 2018
Publisher: Cambridge University Press

“This is that rare book that is historically rooted and complex, yet strikingly contemporary. The issues of hunger and malnutrition continue to be on the agenda of policy makers and society at large in twenty-first-century India. Siegel gives this a complex history and background. Imperial administrators and nationalists, concerned social activists and scholars saw this in different, often contradictory ways. Yet the multiple lenses for viewing hunger, dearth, and public action in the middle of the last century can help with insights into our own times. This is a fine book, one not to be missed.” –Mahesh Rangarajan, Ashoka University, India

Author: Spencer Piston [CAS]
Title: Class Attitudes in America: Sympathy for the Poor, Resentment of the Rich, and Political Implications
Date of Publication: April 19, 2018
Publisher: Cambridge University Press

“This powerful and important book shows that – despite their reputation – Americans want their government to do more to help the least well off. With new evidence and rigorous analysis, Piston shows that most Americans believe the poor have less than they deserve, the rich have more than they deserve, and the appearance of public opposition to progressive economic policies stems from a lack of understanding of who benefits not an opposition to downward redistribution.” –Martin I. Gilens, Princeton University, New Jersey

Title: America and the Postwar World: Remaking International Society, 1945-1956
Date of Publication: March 19, 2018
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 978-0815376156

“David Mayers turns his considered and expert gaze from the United States’s wartime exploits and dilemmas to what followed in the postwar world. Importantly the author skilfully crafts his account of the burgeoning Cold War before that conflict and paradigm became ‘set in stone’. In other words, Mayers’ text contributes to the literature on the origins of the Cold War, without it dominating a narrative looking at the United States and the postwar world where there were alternatives. The breadth of the research, and Mayers’ careful attention to detail make this a most valuable contribution to the canon.” Simon Rofe, SOAS University of London

Author: Gavin Benke [CAS]
Title: Risk and Ruin: Enron and the Culture of American Capitalism
Date of Publication: March 13, 2018
Publisher: University of Pennsylvania Press
ISBN: 978-0812250206

“Gavin Benke takes us on an adventurous journey into the complex network of gas pipelines and cash channels that gave shape to the Enron empire. He does not shy away from the complex financial systems that made Enron so profitable, and digs deep into the SPEs and other financial creations that made Enron tick. Risk and Ruinis extremely important, given the financial storms that loom ahead.”—Bartow Elmore, author of Citizen Coke: The Making of Coca-Cola Capitalism

Title: Process-Based CBT: The Science and Core Clinica Competencies of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Date of Publication: January 2, 2018
Publisher: Context Press
ISBN: 978-1626255968

Process-Based CBT represents an important advancement in the field of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). It admirably describes how to target relevant and largely transdiagnostic processes to promote healthy growth and development. Treatment manuals, developed for research trials for specific DSM disorders, are often quite limiting, in a way that can impede their effectiveness, especially when there are comorbidities. Learning about the core processes presented in this book will enrich students, practitioners, educators, and researchers.” —Judith S. Beck, PhD, president of the Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and clinical professor of psychology in psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania

TitleJean-Jacques Rousseau and Adam Smith: A Philosophical Encounter
Date of Publication: 2018
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 978-1138218956

“Griswold’s book makes an invaluable contribution to our understanding of the relation between Rousseau and Smith. Its sensitive reading of the relevant texts uncovers a wealth of fascinating connections between them on a variety of unexpected topics, including pity and sympathy, selfhood, narcissism, genealogy, and the relation between freedom and politics.” Frederick Neuhouser, Barnard College, USA

TitleRemaking Black Power: How Black Women Transformed an Era
Date of Publication: December 18, 2017
Publisher: Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press
ISBN: 978-1469634371

“Remaking Black Power is an indispensable triumph. Painstakingly researched, artfully organized, crisply argued, utterly insightful, Ashley Farmer has remade Black Power scholarship like the black women she chronicles. This book unveils and dissects what has been hidden from the Black Power–era for far too long: the black woman as theorist.” –Ibram X. Kendi, National Book Award-winning author of Stamped from the Beginning

TitleCollege Aspirations and Access in Working-Class Rural Communities: The Mixed Signals, Challenges, and New Language First-Generation Students Encounter
Date of Publication: December 15, 2017
Publisher: Lexington Books
ISBN: 978-1498536868

“Ardoin provides an in-depth view of the current state of secondary school systems in rural communities, including especially alarming information on how this system affects the students themselves and places strain on rural high school guidance counselors. Rurality and geographic location as identifiers of underserved students are not yet common among academic literature, yet as shown, they greatly affect the ability and aspirations towards higher education of rural students. Rural students nationally will greatly benefit if readers implement the advice proposed in this book.” —Karen M. Ganss, Southern Utah University

Publisher: Harvard University Press
ISBN: 978-0674975859

“A celebration and deeply learned account of Persian poetry in Mughal India, this book traces how the idea of Hindustan in the Iranian imagination encountered the actuality of the place and ultimately transformed the literary and aesthetic landscape of the subcontinent. Mughal Arcadia is attractively written, with enthusiasm and erudition, and will delight anyone interested in the magnificent Indo-Persian culture it commemorates.” –Dick Davis, translator of Faces of Love: Hafez and the Poets of Shiraz

Date of Publication: October 15, 2017
Publisher: Northwestern University Press
ISBN: 978-0810135697

“Strikingly original and marvelously written, Dostoevsky and the Riddle of the Self  not only solves the riddle of Dostoevsky’s conception of the self, but also provides a wealth of new insights into his works. Corrigan’s study is likely to become an event in the field. What is more, it has the potential to be read beyond the circle of Dostoevsky scholars: students and general readers will find the book accessible, provoking, and inspiring. This is a major achievement in Dostoevsky scholarship.” —Irina Paperno, author of Suicide as a Cultural Institution in Dostoevsky’s Russia and “Who, What Am I?”: Tolstoy Struggles to Narrate the Self

Date of Publication: October 15, 2017
Publisher: TriQuarterly/Northwestern University Press
ISBN: 978-0810136274

“I think of Kirchwey as one of the true formal masters of American poetry, brilliant and supple in his craftsmanship in the tradition of Richard Wilbur, Anthony Hecht, and James Merrill. This is a magical volume of poems that asks us to consider what the poet calls ‘stumbling blocks,’ those many physical, temporal, and spiritual interruptions to our passage through a landscape and a life.” —David St. John, author of The Last Troubadour: New and Selected Poems?

“Bonnie Costello has long been one of our finest readers of modern poetry, and The Plural of Us is her richest, finest book–at once stalwartly focused and provocatively wide-ranging. To read The Plural of Us is to sense a lifetime of thinking and feeling brought to bear on some of the most fundamental aspects of lyric poetry.” –James Longenbach, author of The Virtues of Poetry

Date of Publication: July 31, 2017
Publisher: Harvard University Asia Center
ISBN: 978-0674976979

From Domestic Women to Sensitive Young Men is a brilliant account of the uneven emergence of the modern subject in Korean literary fiction, immersing us in the historical circumstances of colonialism, censorship, and the transition to modernity that shaped authors and readers alike in early colonial Korea… Written in beautiful, measured prose, this book apprises us of the costs of longing for individuality, modernity, and civilization. A work of comparative literature at its finest.” –Ruth Barraclough, Australian National University.

“Research shows that this brilliant book can help even young children understand evolution by natural selection. Teaching children about evolution when they’re young ensures that they’ll really ‘get it’ when they’re older. Nothing in science education could possibly be more important than helping children to understand the ideas at the heart of all of biology.” —Alison Gopnik, The Scientist in the Crib

Dietze shows us how to approach forecasting using models based on large datasets and how to make the results easy to digest. This book is certain to be a benchmark in the science of ecological forecasting for decades to come.” –William H. Schlesinger, president emeritus of the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies

“This is the most readable and lucid account I have seen on long-range dependence and self-similarity. Pipiras and Taqqu present a time-series-centric view of this subject that should appeal to both practitioners and researchers in stochastic processes and statistics. I was especially enamored by the insightful comments on the history of the subject that conclude each chapter. This alone is worth the price of the book!” –Richard Davis, Columbia University

“Heywood has written a complete and focused account of Queen Njinga…Njinga of Angola seamlessly knits together the complete set of sources on the Queen, which include missionary accounts, letters, colonial records, previous histories of Angola and Dutch West India Company records…Heywood has cleared away the noise of [the] mostly fantastical accounts and assembled as straight a biography as is possible. Indeed, Njinga of Angola, which took nine years of research, sets out to replace interpretation and sensationalism with facts…Heywood preserves all of the complexity of Njinga and her politics in a book that provides the most complete and foundational history of Queen Njinga.” –Delinda J.

“In a sweeping narrative that ranges from the Middle Ages through World War II, Cathal Nolan dismantles an illusion that has persistently distorted our understanding of armed conflict – that of the decisive battle engineered by the genius general. But the importance of this brilliantly provocative book is not merely historical. Its conclusions apply directly to war and military policy in the present day.” –Andrew J.

“Human in Death offers a sustained and subtle inquiry into J. D. Robb’s In Death books as novels of ideas―texts which invite their readers to think about love, desire, and romantic relationships. Kecia Ali demonstrates that these are thoughtful books, part of a genre that deserves and rewards our serious attention. This is a groundbreaking contribution to the study of mass-market fiction, the ethics of reading, and the emerging field of popular romance studies.”  ―Eric Murphy Selinger, President, International Association for the Study of Popular Romance

“By mining an extraordinarily rich treasure trove of unpublished diaries, Peri moves beyond relating what happened during the blockade and instead explains how Leningraders made sense of it. Sophisticated, nuanced, and extremely well written, The War Within is a major contribution to our understanding of the mentality of Leningrad’s civilians during the blockade and the role that diaries played in Soviet history.” –Richard Bidlack, coauthor of The Leningrad Blockade, 1941–1944: A New Documentary History from the Soviet Archives

Title: Globalisation of Nationalism: The Motive-Force Behind 21st Century Politics
Date of Publication: September 29, 2016
Publisher: ECPR Press
ISBN: 978-1785522147

The premise of this excellent book – that globalisation has spread the idea of the nation-state – is both accurate and a necessary corrective to naive ideas suggesting that states and nations no longer count in world affairs. The papers are superb, and they cover the whole world. A necessary volume.” –John A Hall, McGill University

Title: Learning to Kneel: Noh, Modernism, and Journeys in Teaching
Date of Publication: August 30, 2016
Publisher: Columbia University Press
ISBN: 978-0231166508

What drew Western writers to an arcane, highly stylized form of Japanese court theater? As a scholar, Carrie J. Preston answers this question by way of the archive, unearthing a global network of dancers and writers. But she also pursues this question as a student, subjecting herself to the rigors of noh training. The result is an unusual blend of both approaches, a magisterial study in cultural history that is also a compelling story of teaching and learning.” –Martin Puchner, Harvard University

“With admirably thorough research, Rosella Cappella Zielinski teaches us much about a critical yet remarkably underresearched topic―how governments pay for war. This masterful book deserves to be on the shelf of anyone interested in the nexus of international relations and international political economy.”―Benjamin J. Cohen, Louis G.

“Fallou Ngom lifts us a giant step toward decolonizing what ‘literacy’ can mean, while giving writing in Wolof, the dominant language of Senegal, its rightful place among Muslim literatures of the world. ‘Ajami is the modification of Arabic script to accommodate local languages, and for centuries it has been used to communicate people’s own senses of purpose, place, and divine province, as it does for Murids and other Senegalese Sufis. Ngom’s evocative pages make abundantly clear what has been lost to most Africanist scholars who have ignored the richly self-reflexive resources of ‘Ajami.” –Allen F. Roberts, Professor of World Arts and Cultures, University of California, Los Angeles

Date of Publication: April 4, 2016

“This fascinating book offers us new insights into the old question of ‘forerunners of the Reformation.’ By examining the afterlife of Jan Hus in Hussite, Lutheran and Catholic polemics, Phillip Haberkern brilliantly shows the range of ways in which an earlier form of dissent could be reinterpreted by its followers, its successors and its critics. This book is both deeply scholarly and very readable.” –Euan Cameron, author of The European Reformation

Date of Publication: March 4, 2016
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 978-1107131149

“The voluminous literature on democratization in Latin America has given relatively little attention to presidential campaigns, despite their centrality to the democratic process in the region. Taylor Boas addresses that shortcoming in this impressive book. His analysis provides new insights into the strategic behavior of presidential candidates, party organizations, and professional campaign managers and consultants, and it demonstrates how these actors craft technocratic, populist, personalist, and programmatic appeals to voters. This book is a major contribution to the scholarship on democratic representation in contemporary Latin America.” —Kenneth M. Roberts, Cornell University

Date of Publication: February 25, 2016
Publisher: Brill
ISBN: 978-9004310902

“This lengthy and detailed study takes its place as the most extensive examination to date of the interplay of tragic and comic drama in fifth-century Athens. (…) Nelson’s prose flows rather well and she comes across as engaging and involved in the material and ideas. In a number of places a reader can sense the voice of an experienced teacher unpacking a complex text for her students. She has taken pains to make the volume accessible for non-specialists and motivated students, offering passages in translation (mostly without the original Greek), providing ample background and support (e.g., the glossary and synopses), and glossing technical terms so that the book is relatively light on jargon.” –Wilfred E.

“The authors have the courage as well as the philosophical skills to challenge the sentimentalities designed to help us all to just ‘get along.’ Instead, they draw on their pedagogical experience to provide an account of how difference can be lived. This fascinating book has the potential to change the discussion about how we might live at peace without the peace achieved occluding our rightly lasting differences.” —Stanley Hauerwas, Professor Emeritus of Divinity and Law at Duke University

“To his credit, Professor Samons resolutely refuses to view Pericles with rose-colored glasses. Instead, he shatters the illusions entertained by his predecessors, emphasizing the degree to which the radical democracy in Athens fostered and was fostered by a brutal, ruthless, exploitative imperialism and exhibited a suicidal ambition for further expansion that, thanks in part to the vision of undying glory and grandeur deliberately projected by Pericles, knew no bounds.”  ―Paul A.

“An outstanding archaeological synthesis and an interpretive innovation like none other in recent years. Rather than playing it safe by keeping materiality and religion at arms’ length, he illuminates through painstaking research and insightful analysis how the ‘cultural logic guiding human action’ of Mesoamerican urbanization is permeated by religious practices and ideas. Carballo gives new life to knowledge of Mexico’s ancient cities.” ―Davíd Carrasco, Harvard University

It will be very useful for classes in nineteenth-century philosophy, particularly surveys or those focusing on post-Kantian idealism.”Rachel Zuckert, Northwestern University

Hesiod’s Theogony: from Near Eastern Creation Myths to Paradise Lost
Date of Publication: September 23, 2015
Oxford University Press

“A fascinating project, one that places the Theogony into the environment of similar cosmological creation myths in the ancient Near East, then shows how Hesiod develops a distinctive vision of the way in which civilization and political order evolve out of chaos, a vision that continues to prove influential throughout antiquity and into the works of Milton. This is the book that will set the agenda in Hesiodic studies in the years to come.” –Craig Kallendorf, Texas A&M University

“The two-volume set is easy to navigate, with a thematic table of contents to help readers locate related topics and a detailed index with cross-referencing. Although the archaeology of food is a very specific topic, this encyclopedia is interdisciplinary in order to provide context and comprehensiveness. Therefore, it would serve as a great resource for college-age students in the fields of archaeology, anthropology, food studies, history, sociology, and other related disciplines.” —Booklist

Date of Publication: August 6, 2015

“In this well-informed and rigorous work, the authors challenge the view of presidential universalism with their finding that presidents routinely allocate federal resources to benefit their partisan and electoral constituencies. The fact that chief executives skew policy to the demands of the electoral college encourages us to reconsider our views of the presidency and the manner in which we elect its occupants.”

“An important and excellent book, of equal interest to specialist readers and to those unfamiliar with the story of how Scottish, Irish, and American literature arose in the shadow of London’s literary power. Indebted to Bourdieu but working with a new method of his own, Rezek shows how it is still possible, in an oft visited landscape, to make extraordinary discoveries.” —Pascale Casanova, author of The World Republic of Letters

“This important and much-needed volume brings together an impressive collection of international scholars to tell the complex and fascinating story of postwar France. It is a story of destruction and reconstruction, despair and hope, memory and desire. Not only does this book help us to understand the convoluted relationship between France and the Jews, it deftly enriches our understanding of sociopolitical renewal within the broader context of European transnationalism.” –Aaron W.

The Value of the Particular provides proper testimony to the career and influence of its honoree. The articles are of uniformly high quality and the authors of these essays freely dialogue with Katz and his scholarship in their own writings, thereby bearing direct witness to the impact his career has had upon modern scholarship in these diverse yet overlapping fields. The editors are to be congratulated for their superb work and we can all hope that Professor Katz continues his scholarly productivity for years to come.” —David EllensonBrandeis University and Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, RRJ 20 (2017) 279-297.

ISBN: 978-0801479113

“In this smart, exuberant, and often provocative set of essays, a renowned group of historians set themselves the task of making transnationalism work. I was struck by how often a transnational lens also required truly interdisciplinary approaches―artistic analysis, economics, cultural history, and international affairs are necessarily cohabiting here. For scholars, students, and teachers, this offers a capacious sense of possibility. It is a priceless collection.”―Melani McAlister, author of Epic Encounters

Against Self-Reliance is a remarkably original book and an impassioned critique of liberalism. Howell makes a compelling argument that imitation and emulation occupied a central place in the emergence of the United States. This alternative story has, he suggests, important implications for the way we view our world. His analysis crackles with urgency.”—Catherine Kelly, University of Oklahoma

“I like the idea of mental synthesis very much … I quite agree that language evolved in a way that facilitates synthesis and transmission of the synthesized mental image. … I don’t think there can be much doubt, purely conceptually, that language was a late arrival. Whatever mutation provided the key to it would have had no selectional advantage at all, and would have just been a useless “organ,” if it could not have linked up to pre-existing thought systems.” —Noam Chomsky, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics, MIT

“[B]y examining the formation of credit card markets in eight postcommunist countries, Akos Rona-Tas and Alya Guseva show how [many factors] played a role in fashioning these markets, albeit in different ways in different countries. And in doing so I place it among other wonderful books about market formation . . . [T]here is much to learn here about how credit markets and the rules and practices that generate them are constructed. These are lessons that should be of interest not just to sociologists but economists too.” —John L. Campbell, American Journal of Sociology

The result is a volume that demonstrates that art and science are not incompatible, as many claim.

“It’s the beautiful simple dignity of the writing, whether speaking of its conditions and occasions of sorrow or of happiness, with such respect for what we are as fellow human beings. The elegance of the poem is a consequence of her skill at writing beautiful lines; it is also a moral elegance, composing beautiful lines in beautiful stanzas about how we are on this “poor earth,” living our lives. These poems know how it is.” —David Ferry

“Deeply learned and intellectually adventurous, Classical World Literatures sets a new standard for comparative study in a global perspective. In her fourfold account of Japanese and Roman relations to the older ‘reference cultures’ of China and Greece, Wiebke Denecke develops a series of fascinating, revealing comparisons and offers as well a probing essay in method, raising fundamental questions concerning the challenges and opportunities involved in the study of incommensurable cultures. East Asianists, Classicists, and comparatists of many varieties will see their field differently after reading this strikingly original book.” -David Damrosch, Harvard University

“Given the abject failure of neo-liberalism’s latest policy offering – austerity – to promote growth in Europe, why are neo-liberal ideas and policies still the only game in town? The answer to such a simple question involves multiple threads of explanation, linking powerful interests to ideational plasticity, and institutional stickiness. Schmidt, Thatcher, and their collaborators have delivered a volume that gives us powerful answers to these pressing questions.” – Mark Blyth, author, Austerity, the History of a Dangerous Idea

“Anthony Wallace’s stories resonate with a strong narrative voice. They are melancholy stories whose oral nature juxtaposes adjectives and metaphors to create a haunting imagery. . . . Even with their somberness, it’s difficult to read these stories and not be caught into the storyteller’s spell. . . .In the midst of these stories of potential futility, it is Wallace’s crafting and use of beautiful language to balance emotions and complex levels of development that keeps the reader from also losing hope. Long after finishing the collection, these stories sit and haunt the thoughts of the reader, reliving that sense of ‘maybe this time’ that lives in us all.” —North American Review

“What most distinguishes Greenfeld’s model of the mind from so much else in the field is that she brings together biological and cultural approaches to mental illness inclusively rather than exclusively, in a way that enlarges rather than diminishes both. While accepting the biological reality of major mental illnesses, her analysis is focused not simply on the brain, in a reductive sense, but on the mind as a product of experience and learning as well as biology. Likewise, she applies cultural concepts to psychiatry not in the reductive, purely social-constructionist manner of Laing, Foucault, and Szasz, but so as to foster understanding of cultural and historical variations in the incidence and expression of mental illness that biology alone cannot explain.” — Harold J.

“An intense poetic hovering over a situation of prolonged expectation….The poems in SO SPOKE PENELOPE are simply amazing, whether in the form of an apostrophe to the absent Odysseus or to the Gods, whether in a narrative past-tense mode or in the immediacy of the lived present, whether in the staccato of monosyllables or in the exuberance of unusual compounds, whether they employ Greek-feeling pentameter lines, alliteration, or anaphora. This poetic cycle shows that the whole range of human experience is contained in Penelope of Ithaca.” – Werner Sollors

“Despite the many shelves of books published on Franklin D.

Readers will find incisive portraits and new evidence about the famous and the not so well-known diplomats who tried to carry out FDR’s policies. Mayers demonstrates that while Roosevelt largely ignored the state department, he did pay attention to the reports sent by many of his ambassadors. This book is essential for understanding U.S. foreign relations in the era of Franklin Roosevelt.” —Frank Costigliola, author of Roosevelt’s Lost Alliances: How Personal Politics Helped Start the Cold War

“As in his previous books, Impurity and Sin in Ancient Judaism and Purity, Sacrifice, and the Temple, Professor Klawans displays his enviable skill in absorbing, digesting, and presenting with clarity a vast amount of material on a complicated subject: the theologies of ancient Judaism. Perhaps only a scholar who has already demonstrated his expertise in the area of Jewish law and observance could treat with complete credibility the tricky and touchy topic of ‘theology’ in ancient Judaism. His achievement is all the more admirable because he focuses upon that protean Talleyrand of first-century Judaism, Josephus.” –John P. Meier, William K.

Using rich historical analysis coupled with sophisticated statistical studies, Martin and Swank offer a fresh and compelling answer. They show that business interests are shaped by the structure of democratic governance. This marvelous book challenges our most fundamental ideas about where group interests come from, and it has important, and unsettling, implications for the future of equality and democracy.” —Frank Dobbin, Harvard University

“Two distinguished scholars have invited scholars of comparable distinction to contribute essays that discuss the history of forgiveness (or what might mistakenly be taken as forgiveness if we hastily project contemporary understandings) from ancient Greece and Rome, through medieval Judaism, and concluding with Aquinas. This book confirms L. P. Hartley’s famous remark that ‘the past is a foreign country: they do things differently there’ and reveals this foreign country as a fascinating place from which all who are interested in forgiveness can learn a great deal.” –Jeffrie G.

“A timely and important volume that ought to be essential reading for students and scholars alike. The Shoah did not begin with concentration camps and trains. It began with words and ideas. The lies of the Protocols played a key role in marginalizing and dehumanizing European Jewry, paving the way for their brutal extermination. Remarkably, in the contemporary context, the Protocols are once again becoming widely used as effective propaganda, especially throughout much of the Middle East…This text provides an interdisciplinary, high caliber, scholarly analysis of a subject matter that is under-studied and of profound importance. “ – Charles Asher Small, Former Executive Director of the Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism

Title: Ancestors, Virgins, and Friars: Christianity as Local Religion in Late Imperial China
Date of Publication: May 31, 2010
Publisher: Harvard University Asia Center
ISBN: 0674035968

“In this elegant and erudite book Menegon uncovers the lost history of a four-hundred-year-old Catholic community in China, showing brilliantly how Christianity has become localized, how it has become Chinese, how it has become part of local life. The book convincingly undermines the widespread notion that what is most important about Christianity in China is its foreignness. It needs to be read not only by scholars of Christianity but also by all scholars of late imperial China, who ignore Christianity at the expense of a full understanding of religious life. As the number of Christians grows explosively in China today, this book offers an invaluable account of the past and useful material for reflecting on the future.” — Michael Szonyi, Harvard University.

Date of Publication: April 28, 2010

“This inventive and deeply troubling book teaches that our volunteer military allocates the ultimate costs of war very unevenly, raising fundamental questions about distributive justice. Importantly, it also chronicles the effects of exposure to these costs, and isolation from them, on mass opinion, trust in government, and levels of political engagement, thus offering a significant contribution to understanding vexing trends in mass attitudes and political behavior.” – Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University

“In academic and political circles alike, the gentrification of local neighborhoods fuels contention over the major urban issues of the day: the rehabilitation of vacant land and defunct industrial buildings; the role of the arts, culture, and public space in the life of the city; and the rising inequality between wealthy and poor communities. In this terrific collection, Japonica Brown-Saracino presents a broad and inclusive intellectual map of our collective wrangling over these urban processes and their impact on the metropolitan landscape.” – David Grazian, Sociology, University of Pennsylvania
