The Shortest Way with Defoe: Robinson Crusoe, Deism, and the Novel

May 4, 2020 University of Virginia Press 978-0813943640

"This book is an original and substantial contribution to the study of Daniel Defoe, seventeenth and eighteenth-century literary history, the nature of intellectual thought and polemic attack in the period, and the history and theory of the novel form itself. Prince’s implicit idea―a new and truly formative analysis of the non-doctrinal narrative mind―is really path breaking." ―Michael Seidel, Columbia University, author of Robinson Crusoe: Island Myths and the Novel

Sonallah Ibrahim

Ice

November 1, 2019 The University of Chicago Press 9780857426505

"Regardless of its ambiguity, the cumulative effect of Ibrahim’s rigidly factual narrative becomes mesmerizing, and his portrait of pissy taxi drivers and waiters and theater attendants, belligerent drunks, fatigued students with distant husbands in the military, and the merely beleaguered of all ages has a weird power that comes out unexpectedly, in the smallest of observations. Riding the bus, the narrator sits “across from a woman holding a dog to her chest. A round, rosy face with prominent cheekbones. Big mouth, blue eyes. Her face framed by wild locks of curly hair. Her features pulled forward in a pout like a spoilt child. The dog’s tiny head, looking around intelligently in all directions. Her shy-looking companion. She put her head on his shoulder and said she was tired.” Written and published at the very moment Egypt was entering the Arab Spring, Ice is a curious missive from a partly real, partly imagined past to a generation awakening to hope and upheaval—as well as the possibility of dashed illusions." – Eric Banks, 4columns.org

The Mind Has Cliffs of Fall: Poems at the Extremes of Feeling

October 22, 2019 W. W. Norton & Company 978-1324001782

The Mind Has Cliffs of Fall is a thrilling roller-coaster ride of an anthology. Just when you think you have mastered the pitch and roll of one emotional extreme, you find yourself careening around a bend into a different extreme. And Pinsky’s individual selections are at once deft and surprising: a Renaissance Old Master like Fulke Greville sits cheek-by-jowl with poets like Keetje Kuipers and Katie Willingham, born within hailing distance of the present. The collection is a perfect introduction to poetry’s enduring power to explore the utmost bounds of our experience.” - Stephen Greenblatt, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of Tyrant

The case studies are explained in such a way that one can clearly understand the development of the different forms of nationalism. This concise account ties nationalism to the modern passion for equality, completely unfamiliar to the old world, and shows not only its impact on our political, economic, and social lives but more importantly how it affects our existential reality, particularly in the age of globalization. The book is a must read for all interested in coming to grips with the central phenomenon of our time.”—Oliver Benoit, Chair, Department of Humanities and Social Sciences, St. George’s University

The authors cleverly reconsider the facts of leading Supreme Court eyewitness cases to demonstrate how attention to scientific research would have enriched the Court's analysis and decision making - a treat for lawyers and judges as well as researchers.” -Steven Penrod, John Jay College of Criminal Justice

February 12, 2019 University of California Press 978-0520297746

"Greenberg unravels our understanding of the notion of 'at-risk youth' and reveals the unexpected consequences of programs meant to transform vulnerable young people. On the other side of the youth control complex is a fleet of agencies and nonprofits striving to prevent harm. Greenberg shows how, despite their best intentions, attempts to transform the lives of marginalized youth fall apart in a cascade of short-term programs, public health data, and market-driven evidence. Greenberg presents an alternative way of thinking about the ways policy shapes the lives of vulnerable young people. Brilliant and deeply human, this book should be read by everyone working to change the lives of young people."  —Victor Rios, author of Human Targets

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.

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.

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

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.

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

In a number of places a reader can sense the voice of an experienced teacher unpacking a complex text for her students.

The Value of the Particular: Lessons from Judaism and the Modern Jewish Experience

May 13, 2015 Brill 978-9004292680

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 Familiar Made Strange: American Icons and Artifacts After the Transnational Turn

March 31, 2015 Cornell University Press 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: The Arts of Dependence in the Early United States

March 18, 2015 University of Pennsylvania Press 978-0812247039

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

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.

FDR’s Ambassadors and the Diplomacy of Crisis: From the Rise of Hitler to the End of World War II

January 7, 2013 Cambridge University Press 978-1107031265

“Despite the many shelves of books published on Franklin D. Roosevelt’s diplomacy, no study has thus far examined FDR’s ambassadors with the extensive research, discerning analysis, and global perspective displayed in David Mayers’ significant new book. 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

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

“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.

A Cultural History of the Atlantic World, 1250-1820 will be a foundation stone in the study of the Atlantic, simultaneously an entry point for novices, a reference for established scholars, and a guide for future studies. An extraordinary achievement.” — Ira Berlin, University of Maryland“Finally we have an Atlantic history in which the peoples and cultures of the three continents are given equal weight, and in which Africans, Native Americans and Europeans are all important actors in and creators of this history. The integration of primary sources, current scholarship, and new interpretations makes Thornton’s book essential reading for scholars, students and the general public.” — Stuart B.

The book offers an original thesis with characteristic clarity, fine conceptual articulation and an expository style that combines the virtues of immanent interpretations with those of reconstructive ones. Careful reading of the primary texts is put to the service of showing what is true in our philosophical past."--Katerina Deligiorgi, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

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

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

The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism

“Sociologists interested in Max Weber can count themselves fortunate these days with the recent appearance of the second revised edition of Stephen Kalberg’s new translation of Weber’s work, The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism. . . . Those teaching upper division undergraduate and graduate courses in social theory or the sociology of religion will find this volume an ideal introduction to Weber’s work and to the continuing controversies surrounding his famous thesis. At $14.95 in paper-bound edition, it is more than worth the price.”  — Donald A. Nielsen, State University of New York Oneota

Ancestors, Virgins, and Friars: Christianity as Local Religion in Late Imperial China

May 31, 2010 Harvard University Asia Center 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.

The Casualty Gap: The Causes and Consequences of American Wartime Inequalities

April 28, 2010 Oxford University Press 0195390962

“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

Selin’s analysis of the agreements that make up this regime provides important insights into the role of coalitions and institutional linkages in the complex and multi-scale governance efforts aimed at improving chemical safety. Highlighting an issue that to date has received less attention that it deserves, this book will be an invaluable resource for scholars and practitioners in the field of global environmental governance.” — Jennifer Clapp, CIGI Chair in International Governance and Professor of Environmental Studies, University of Waterloo, co-author of Paths to a Green World

In this path-breaking inquest, Tim Longman brilliantly illuminates this long-neglected aspect of the Rwandan tragedy. His book stands as a major contribution to our understanding of the less than edifying role of the Church in Rwanda and other genocidal settings.” — Rene Lemarchand, Emeritus Professor, University of Florida
