“Gene Andrew Jarrett reintroduces to us voices that we do not often hear in anthologies.  Works by Harryette Mullen, Suzan-Lori Parks, Walter Mosely, and Percival Everett, among others, glow and sing here, and complete the broad mosaic that Professor Jarrett so successfully reconstructs of twentieth- and twenty-first-century literature by people of African descent.” – Nathan L Grant, African American Review

Title: Classical World Literatures: Sino-Japanese and Greco-Roman Comparisons
Date of Publication: December 26, 2013
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0199971846

“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

TitleResilient Liberalism in Europe’s Political Economy
Date of Publication: September 30, 2013
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 1107613973

“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

“Scorching… heartbreaking… Bacevich dismantles the warrior myth we civilians and politicians so enjoy worshiping from afar, and replaces that idol with flesh and blood, vulnerable humans, who deserve better than the profligate, wasteful way in which we treat them.” – Rachel Maddow, the New York Times Book Review

TitleWronged by Empire: Post-Imperial Ideology and Foreign Policy in India and China
Date of Publication: August 21, 2013
Publisher: Stanford University Press
ISBN: 0804786526

“Manjari Miller’s Wronged by Empire provides a refreshing complement to the standard materialist readings of why China and India conduct themselves as they do: by making colonialism the pivot for explaining both their pervasive defensiveness and their conspicuous sense of entitlement, she reminds the international community that it cannot escape China and India’s past any more than they themselves can. A rich and rewarding book.” – Ashley J. Tellis, Senior Associate, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace

Title: Mind, Modernity, Madness: The Impact of Culture on Human Experience
Date of Publication: May 8, 2013
Publisher: Harvard University Press
ISBN: 0674072766

“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. Bursztajn, M.D., Harvard Medical School

Date of Publication: February 18, 2013
Publisher: Duke University Press Books
ISBN: 0822354217

“This slim book is free of academic jargon and instead exudes authenticity and positivity. The women’s stories about their own histories and current circumstances are handled capably by the authors who acknowledge the interesting dynamics that play out as they interview women whose own fathers rarely let them leave the house or attend secondary school. High school and undergraduate students interested in Latin American politics and women’s studies will especially find this intriguing and informative.” – Jennifer Stout, Library Journal

TitleSo Spoke Penelope
Date of Publication: January 22, 2013
Publisher: Grolier Poetry Press
ISBN: 1891592025

“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

“Turkey is a country of contradictions, and very few authors have managed to paint so complex a picture of it as White. It is a nation where the secular elite has dogmatically made war on all things Islamic, yet this same elite embraces a Turkish nationalism rooted in the Islamic religion. This is a well-written, engaging, and smart book about contemporary Turkey, one that will be widely read and discussed.” – Henri J. Barkey, Lehigh University

“Keith Vincent creatively illuminates the narrative structures, reading practices, and cultural assumptions through which key Japanese texts from the first half of the twentieth century articulate the close proximity of historical and developmental understandings of male-male desire to modern formulations of homosociality. Meticulously researched and rigorously argued, Two-Timing Modernity is a most welcome contribution to the field.” – James Reichert, Stanford University

“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

Preston’s impressive historical research interrupts the standard gendered dichotomy of antimodernism and avant-gardism and makes an important contribution to reconceiving transatlantic modernism.” -Laura Winkiel, author of Modernism, Race, and Manifestos

“Millennial expressions are found throughout history and are all around us. As Richard Landes demonstrates, some have extremely serious consequences. This is an erudite and informative cross-cultural study of the characteristics and dynamics of the varieties of millennial movements. There is much to be learned from this volume. Particularly welcome are the treatments of the secular millennial thought of Marx, and the Communist millennial movement in Russia and its influence on German Nazi millennialism. Richard Landes’s insightful analysis of millennial phenomena constitutes a major contribution to the study of history and current events.”–Catherine Wessinger, Rev. H. James Yamauchi, S.J.

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.

“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

This collection constitutes an important step beyond the older, diachronic understanding of Jewish history.” — Glenn Dynner, author of Men of Silk: The Hasidic Conquest of Polish Jewish Society
