The Language Animal

The Full Shape of the Human Linguistic Capacity


Charles Taylor

There is no other book that has presented a critique of conventional philosophy of language
in these terms and constructed an alternative to it in anything like this way.
Akeel Bilgrami, Columbia University
In seminal works ranging from Sources of the Self to A Secular Age, Charles Taylor has
shown how we create possible ways of being, both as individuals and as a society. In his
new book setting forth decades of thought, he demonstrates that language is at the center
of this generative process.
For centuries, philosophers have been divided on the nature of language. Those in the
rational empiricist traditionHobbes, Locke, Condillac, and their heirsassert that
language is a tool that human beings developed to encode and communicate information.
In The Language Animal, Taylor explains that this view neglects the crucial role language
plays in shaping the very thought it purports to express. Language does not merely
describe; it constitutes meaning and fundamentally shapes human experience. The human
linguistic capacity is not something we innately possess. We first learn language from
others, and, inducted into the shared practice of speech, our individual selves emerge out
of the conversation.
Taylor expands the thinking of the German Romantics Hamann, Herder, and Humboldt
into a theory of linguistic holism. Language is intellectual, but it is also enacted in artistic
portrayals, gestures, tones of voice, metaphors, and the shifts of emphasis and attitude
that accompany speech. Human language recognizes no boundary between mind and
body. In illuminating the full capacity of the language animal, Taylor sheds light on the
very question of what it is to be a human being.
Charles Taylor is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Philosophy at McGill University.
He is the award-winning author of many books, including A Secular Age, Sources of the
Self, and The Ethics of Authenticity (all from Harvard).

The Habsburg Empire


A New History

Pieter M. Judson
In a panoramic and pioneering reappraisal, Pieter Judson shows why the Habsburg Empire
mattered so much, for so long, to millions of Central Europeans. Across divides of language,
religion, region, and history, ordinary women and men felt a common attachment to their
empire, while bureaucrats, soldiers, politicians, and academics devised inventive solutions
to the challenges of governing Europes second largest state. In the decades before and
after its dissolution, some observers belittled the Habsburg Empire as a dysfunctional
patchwork of hostile ethnic groups and an anachronistic imperial relic. Judson examines
their motives and explains just how wrong these rearguard critics were.
Rejecting fragmented histories of nations in the making, this bold revision surveys the
shared institutions that bridged difference and distance to bring stability and meaning
to the far-flung empire. By supporting new schools, law courts, and railroads, along with
scientific and artistic advances, the Habsburg monarchs sought to anchor their authority
in the cultures and economies of Central Europe. A rising standard of living throughout the
empire deepened the legitimacy of Habsburg rule, as citizens learned to use the empires
administrative machinery to their local advantage. Nationalists developed distinctive ideas
about cultural difference in the context of imperial institutions, yet all of them claimed the
Habsburg state as their empire.
The empires creative solutions to governing its many lands
and peoplesas well as the intractable problems it could not
solveleft an enduring imprint on its successor states in Central
Europe. Its lessons remain no less important today.
Pieter M. Judson is Professor of 19th and 20th Century History
at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. He is
author of Guardians of the Nation: Activists on the Language
Frontiers of Imperial Austria (Harvard).

What Works

Gender Equality by Design


Iris Bohnet

Pathbreaking work, and packed with insights on every page. Iris Bohnet has produced, at
once, the best book ever written on behavioral science and discrimination, and a major
contribution to behaviorally informed policymaking as a whole. Her book promises to
change both private and public institutionsand to improve individual lives.
Cass Sunstein, Harvard University

Gender equality is a moral and a business imperative. But


unconscious bias holds us back, and de-biasing peoples minds
has proven to be difficult and expensive. Diversity training
programs have had limited success, and individual effort alone
often invites backlash. Behavioral design offers a new solution.
By de-biasing organizations instead of individuals, we can make
smart changes that have big impacts. Presenting researchbased solutions, Iris Bohnet hands us the tools we need to move
the needle in classrooms and boardrooms, in hiring and promotion, benefiting businesses,
governments, and the lives of millions.
What Works is built on new insights into the human mind. It draws on data collected by
companies, universities, and governments in Australia, India, Norway, the United States,
Zambia, and other countries, often in randomized controlled trials. It points out dozens of
evidence-based interventions that could be adopted right now. Some are already in place.
For example, a curtain concealing the gender of musicians during audition vastly increases
the talent available to orchestras. Smarter evaluation procedures help organizations hire
and promote the best instead of those who look the part. Redesigned tests, such as the
SAT in the United States, no longer favor risk-takers; counter-stereotypical politicians in
India affect what people believe possible; and transparency helps build diverse boards in
the United Kingdom. A wealth of evidence-based examples like these demonstrates how
research is addressing gender bias and improving lives and performance, and what more
can be doneoften at shockingly low cost and surprisingly high speed.
Iris Bohnet is a behavioral economist, Professor and Director of the Women and Public
Policy Program at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Nothing Ever Dies

Vietnam and the Memory of War


Viet Thanh Nguyen

Beautifully written, powerfully argued, thoughtful, provocative.


Marilyn B. Young, author of The Vietnam Wars, 19451990
All wars are fought twice, the first time on the battlefield, the second time in memory. From
the author of the bestselling novel The Sympathizer comes a searching exploration of the
conflict Americans call the Vietnam War and Vietnamese call the American Wara conflict
that lives on in the collective memory of both nations.
From a kaleidoscope of cultural formsnovels, memoirs, cemeteries, monuments, films,
photography, museum exhibits, video games, souvenirs, and moreNothing Ever Dies
brings a comprehensive vision of the war into sharp focus. At stake are ethical questions
about how the war should be remembered by participants that include not only Americans
and Vietnamese but also Laotians, Cambodians, South Koreans, and Southeast Asian
Americans. Too often, memorials valorize the experience of ones own people above all
else, honoring their sacrifices while demonizing the enemyor, most often, ignoring
combatants and civilians on the other side altogether. Visiting sites across the United
States, Southeast Asia, and Korea, Viet Thanh Nguyen provides penetrating interpretations
of the way memories of the war help to enable future wars or struggle to prevent them.
Drawing from this war, Nguyen offers a lesson for all wars by
calling on us to recognize not only our shared humanity but our
ever-present inhumanity. This is the only path to reconciliation
with our foes, and with ourselves. Without reconciliation,
wars truth will be impossible to remember, and wars trauma
impossible to forget.
Viet Thanh Nguyen is Associate Professor of English and
American Studies & Ethnicity at the University of Southern
California. He is author of The Sympathizer, a bestselling novel.

History and Presence


Robert A. Orsi
This is a meticulously researched, humane, and deeply challenging book. It concerns
the people and the groups for whom heaven and earth, life and death are not separated
by absolute boundaries. The story is set against the background of postwar American
Catholicism. It has searing moments of desperate hope and unexpected comfort. It also has
moments of sheer horror. The men and women studied in this book do not belong to a world
we have lost. They belong to a world we have lost sight of.
Peter Brown, Princeton University

Beginning with metaphysical debates in the sixteenth century over the nature of Christs
presence in the host, the distinguished historian and scholar of religion Robert A. Orsi
imagines an alternative to the future of religion that early moderns proclaimed was
inevitable.
The question of real presencethe Catholic doctrine of the literal, physical, embodied
presence of Christ in the hostcoincided with early modern global conquest and commerce
and shaped how Europeans encountered the religions of others. The gods really present,
in the Catholic sense, were translated into metaphors and symptoms, and into functions
of the social and political. Presence became evidence of superstition, of magical thinking,
of the infantile and irrational, the primitive and the savage. History and Presence radically
confronts this intellectual heritage, proposing instead a model for the study of religion
that begins with humans and gods present to each other in the circumstances of everyday
life. Orsi then asks what it would mean to write history with the real presence of special
beings restored. With reference to Marian apparitions, the cult of the saints, relations with
the dead, and other Catholic instances of encounters with the gods really present, Orsi
elaborates a theory of presence for the study of both contemporary religion and history.
The unseeing of the gods was a foundational requirement of Western modernity. Orsi urges
us to withhold from absence the intellectual and spiritual prestige modernity encourages
us to give it, and instead to approach history with the gods fully present.

including The Madonna of 115th Street.

The Banjo

Americas African Instrument


Laurent Dubois
The banjo has been called by many names over its history, but they all refer to the same
soundstrings humming over skinthat has eased souls and electrified crowds for
centuries. The Banjo invites us to hear that sound afresh in a biography of one of Americas
iconic folk instruments. Attuned to a rich heritage spanning continents and cultures,
Laurent Dubois traces the banjo from humble origins, revealing how it became one of the
great stars of American musical life.
In the seventeenth century, enslaved people in the Caribbean and North America drew on
their memories of varied African musical traditions to construct instruments from carvedout gourds covered with animal skin. Providing a much-needed sense of rootedness,
solidarity, and consolation, banjo picking became an essential part of black plantation
life. White musicians took up the banjo in the nineteenth century, when it became the
foundation of the minstrel show and began to be produced industrially on a large scale.
Even as this instrument found its way into rural white communities, however, the banjo
remained central to African American musical performance.
Twentieth-century musicians incorporated the instrument into styles ranging from
ragtime and jazz to Dixieland, bluegrass, reggae, and pop. Versatile and enduring, the
banjo combines rhythm and melody into a single unmistakable sound that resonates with
strength and purpose. From the earliest days of American history, the banjos sound has
allowed folk musicians to create community and joy even while protesting oppression and
injustice.

Global Inequality

A New Approach for the Age of Globalization


Branko Milanovic
This is an important book on an issue which has surprisingly been overlooked in the
increasing debate on inequality: global inequality. A must-read.
Ann Harrison, University of Pennsylvania
One of the worlds leading economists of inequality, Branko Milanovic presents a bold new
account of the dynamics that drive inequality on a global scale. Drawing on vast data sets
and cutting-edge research, he explains the benign and malign forces that make inequality
rise and fall within and among nations. He also reveals who has been helped the most by
globalization, who has been held back, and what policies might tilt the balance toward
economic justice.
Global Inequality takes us back hundreds of years, and as far around the world as data
allow, to show that inequality moves in cycles, fueled by war and disease, technological
disruption, access to education, and redistribution. The recent surge of inequality in the
West has been driven by the revolution in technology, just as the Industrial Revolution
drove inequality 150 years ago. But even as inequality has soared within nations, it has
fallen dramatically among nations, as middle-class incomes in China and India have drawn
closer to the stagnating incomes of the middle classes in the developed world. A more
open migration policy would reduce global inequality even further.
Both American and Chinese inequality seems well entrenched and self-reproducing,
though it is difficult to predict if current trends will be derailed by emerging plutocracy,
populism, or war. For those who want to understand how we got where we are, where we
may be heading, and what policies might help reverse that course, Milanovics compelling
explanation is the ideal place to start.

Presidential Professor, Graduate Center, City University of New York. He is author of The
Haves and the Have-Nots and Worlds Apart.

Somme

Into the Breach


Hugh Sebag-Montefiore
The notion of battles as the irreducible building blocks of war demands a single verdict
of each campaignvictory, defeat, stalemate. But this kind of accounting leaves no room
to record the nuances and twists of actual conflict. In Somme: Into the Breach, the noted
military historian Hugh Sebag-Montefiore shows that by turning our focus to stories of the
front lineto acts of heroism and moments of both terror and triumphwe can counter,
and even change, familiar narratives.
Planned as a decisive strike but fought as a bloody battle of attrition, the Battle of the Somme
claimed over a million dead or wounded in months of fighting that have long epitomized the
tragedy and folly of World War I. Yet by focusing on the first-hand experiences and personal
stories of both Allied and enemy soldiers, Hugh Sebag-Montefiore defies the customary
framing of incompetent generals and senseless slaughter. In its place, eyewitness accounts
relive scenes of extraordinary courage and sacrifice, as soldiers ordered over the top
ventured into No Mans Land and enemy trenches, where they met a hail of machine-gun
fire, thickets of barbed wire, and exploding shells.
Rescuing from history the many forgotten heroes whose bravery has been overlooked,
and giving voice to their bereaved relatives at home, Hugh Sebag-Montefiore reveals the
Somme campaign in all its glory as well as its misery, helping us to realize that there are
many meaningful ways to define a battle when seen through the eyes of those who lived it.
Hugh Sebag-Montefiore is a journalist and author of the critically acclaimed Enigma: The
Battle for the Code and Dunkirk: Fight to the Last Man (Harvard).

Track Changes

A Literary History of Word Processing


Matthew G. Kirschenbaum

Track Changes is delightful, magisterial, and instantly essential. Kirschenbaum


unimpeachably delivers on his promise to give an account of word processing in all its
wonderful messiness and complication. In his lively attention to storytelling, Kirschenbaum
offers an account that brims over with interest, surprise, and revelation.
Matthew Battles, metaLAB, Harvard University
The story of writing in the digital age is every bit as messy as the ink-stained rags that
littered the floor of Gutenbergs print shop or the hot molten lead of the Linotype machine.
During the period of the pivotal growth and widespread adoption of word processing as
a writing technology, some authors embraced it as a marvel while others decried it as the
death of literature. The product of years of archival research and numerous interviews
conducted by the author, Track Changes is the first literary history of word processing.
Matthew Kirschenbaum examines how the interests and ideals of creative authorship
came to coexist with the computer revolution. Who were the first adopters? What kind
of anxieties did they share? Was word processing perceived as just a better typewriter or
something more? How did it change our understanding of writing?
Track Changes balances the stories of individual writers with a consideration of how the
seemingly ineffable act of writing is always grounded in particular instruments and media,
from quills to keyboards. Along the way, we discover the candidates for the first novel
written on a word processor, explore the surprisingly varied reasons why writers of both
popular and serious literature adopted the technology, trace the spread of new metaphors
and ideas from word processing in fiction and poetry, and consider the fate of literary
scholarship and memory in an era when the final remnants of authorship may consist of
folders on a hard drive or documents in the cloud.

War by Other Means


Geoeconomics and Statecraft

Robert D. Blackwill Jennifer M. Harris


An urgent message that other countries are using economic measures to achieve their
geopolitical objectives. Absent an effective U.S. response, we will increasingly be required to
rely on military force to protect our vital interests.
John Deutch, emeritus Institute Professor at MIT, former Director of the CIA and
Deputy Secretary of Defense
Today, nations increasingly carry out geopolitical combat through economic means.
Policies governing everything from trade and investment to energy and exchange rates are
wielded as tools to win diplomatic allies, punish adversaries, and coerce those in between.
Not so in the United States, however. America still too often reaches for the gun over the
purse to advance its interests abroad. The result is a playing field sharply tilting against the
United States.
In a cogent analysis of why the United States is losing ground as a world power and what it
can do to reverse the trend, War by Other Means describes the statecraft of geoeconomics:
the use of economic instruments to achieve geopolitical goals. Geoeconomics has long
been a lever of Americas foreign policy. But factors ranging from U.S. bureaucratic politics
to theories separating economics from foreign policy leave America ill prepared for this
new era of geoeconomic contest, while rising powers, especially China, are adapting
rapidly. The rules-based system Americans set in place after World War II benefited the
United States for decades, but now, as the system frays and global competitors take
advantage, America is uniquely self-constrained. Its geoeconomic policies are hampered
by neglect and resistance, leaving the United States overly reliant on traditional military
force.
Drawing on immense scholarship and government experience, Robert Blackwill and
Jennifer Harris show that if Americas policies are left uncorrected, the price in American
blood and treasure will only grow. What geoeconomic warfare requires is a new vision of
U.S. statecraft.

amon de Valera

A Will to Power

Ronan Fanning
amon de Valera embodies Irish independence much as de Gaulle personifies French
resistance and Churchill exemplifies British resolve. Ronan Fanning offers a reappraisal of
the man who remains the most famous, and most divisive, political figure in modern Irish
history, reconciling de Valeras shortcomings with a recognition of his achievement as the
statesman who single-handedly severed Irelands last ties to England.
Born in New York in 1882, de Valera was sent away to be raised by his mothers family in
Ireland, where a solitary upbringing forged the extraordinary self-sufficiency that became
his hallmark. Conservative in his youth, he changed his name from Edward to amon
when he became a member of the Gaelic League, the Irish language revival movement,
in 1908. Five years later, he joined the Irish Volunteers, a nationalist military organization,
and participated in the 1916 Easter Rising. Escaping execution afterward, he used his
prestige as the senior surviving rebel officer to become the leader of Irelands revolutionary
nationalists. But the iron will that was usually his strength became a fateful weakness when
he stubbornly rejected the Anglo-Irish Treaty, sparking the Irish Civil War of 19221923.
De Valeras vision for Ireland was blinkered: he had little interest in social and economic
progress. But without him, Ireland might never have achieved independence. The nation
was spared decades of unproductive debate on the pros and cons of remaining tied to
Britain, and by 1973 it had enough self-confidence to surrender some of its sovereignty by
joining the European Community.

From the War on Poverty to the


War on Crime
The Making of Mass Incarceration in America
Elizabeth Hinton
In the United States today, one in every thirty-one adults is under some form of penal control,
including one in eleven African American men. How did the land of the free become the
home of the worlds largest prison system? Challenging the belief that Americas prison
problem originated with the Reagan administrations War on Drugs, Elizabeth Hinton traces
the rise of mass incarceration to an ironic source: the social welfare programs of Lyndon
Johnsons Great Society at the height of the civil rights era.
Johnsons War on Poverty policies sought to foster equality and economic opportunity. But
these initiatives were also rooted in widely shared assumptions about African Americans
role in urban disorder, which prompted Johnson to call for a simultaneous War on Crime.
The 1965 Law Enforcement Assistance Act empowered the national government to take a
direct role in militarizing local police. Federal anticrime funding soon incentivized social
service providers to ally with police departments, courts, and prisons. Under Richard Nixon
and his successors, welfare programs fell by the wayside while investment in policing and
punishment expanded. Anticipating future crime, policy makers urged states to build new
prisons and introduced law enforcement measures into urban
schools and public housing, turning neighborhoods into targets
of police surveillance.
By the 1980s, crime control and incarceration dominated
national responses to poverty and inequality. The initiatives of
that decade were less a sharp departure than the full realization
of the punitive transformation of urban policy implemented by
Republicans and Democrats alike since the 1960s.
Elizabeth Hinton is Assistant Professor of History and African and African American
Studies at Harvard University.

Brothers of the Quill


Oliver Goldsmith in Grub Street
Norma Clarke
With its broad tableau and vividly drawn cast of characters, this book is a genuinely
accessible and enlightening account of the working lives of Grub Street authors.
Michael Griffin, University of Limerick

Oliver Goldsmith arrived in England in 1756 a penniless Irishman. He toiled for years in
the anonymity of Grub Streetalready a synonym for impoverished hack writersbefore
he became one of literary Londons most celebrated authors. Norma Clarke tells the
extraordinary story of this destitute scribbler turned gentleman of letters as it unfolds in
the early days of commercial publishing, when writers livelihoods came to depend on the
reading public, not aristocratic patrons. Clarke examines a network of writers radiating
outward from Goldsmith: the famous and celebrated authors of Dr. Johnsons Club and
those far less fortunate brothers of the quill trapped in Grub Street.
Clarke emphasizes Goldsmiths sense of himself as an Irishman, showing that many of
his early literary acquaintances were Irish migrs: Samuel Derrick, John Pilkington, Paul
Hiffernan, and Edward Purdon. These writers tutored Goldsmith in the ways of Grub Street,
and their influence on his development has not previously been explored. Also Irish was the
patron he acquired after 1764, Robert Nugent, Lord Clare. Clarke places Goldsmith in the
tradition of Anglo-Irish satirists beginning with Jonathan Swift. He transmuted troubling
truths about the British Empire into forms of fable and nostalgia whose undertow of Irish
indignation remains perceptible, if just barely, beneath an equanimous English surface.
To read Brothers of the Quill is to be taken by the hand into the darker corners of eighteenthcentury Grub Street, and to laugh and cry at the absurdities of the writing life.

Whatever happens, the flame of French resistance must not and will not go out. As Charles
de Gaulle ended his radio address to the French nation in June 1940, listeners must have
felt a surge of patriotism tinged with uncertainty. Who would keep the flame burning
through the dark years of occupation? At what cost?
Olivier Wieviorka presents a comprehensive history of the French Resistance, synthesizing
its social, political, and military aspects to offer fresh insights into its operation. Detailing
the Resistance from the inside out, he reveals not one organization but many interlocking
groups often at odds over goals, methods, and leadership. He debunks lingering myths,
including the idea that the Resistance sprang up in response to the exhortations of de
Gaulles Free French government-in-exile. The Resistance was homegrown, arising from
the soil of French civil society. Resisters had to improvise in the fight against the Nazis and
the collaborationist Vichy regime. They had no blueprint to follow, but resisters from all
walks of life and across the political spectrum formed networks, organizing activities from
printing newspapers to rescuing downed airmen to sabotage. Although the Resistance
was never strong enough to fight the Germans openly, it provided the Allies invaluable
intelligence, sowed havoc behind enemy lines on D-Day, and played a key role in Pariss
liberation.
Wieviorka shatters the conventional image of a united resistance with no interest in
political power. But setting the record straight does not tarnish the legacy of its fighters,
who braved Nazism without blinking.

Saving the Media

Capitalism, Crowdfunding, and Democracy


Julia Cag
Translated by Arthur Goldhammer
Intelligent, daring, even revolutionarythese are the three adjectives that could describe this
new book by Julia Cag.
LEXPANSION

For economist Julia Cag, the crisis of the media is primarily a problem of funding.
In this new book, she imagines a participatory model that guarantees the freedom and
independence of the press.
LIBERATION

The media are in crisis. Confronted by growing competition and sagging advertising
revenue, news operations in print, on radio and TV, and even online are struggling to
reinvent themselves. Many have gone under. For too many others, the answer has been
to lay off reporters, join conglomerates, and lean more heavily on generic content. The
result: in a world awash with information, news organizations provide citizens with less
and less in-depth reporting and a narrowing range of viewpoints. If democracy requires an
informed citizenry, this trend spells trouble.
Julia Cag explains the economics and history of the media crisis in Europe and America,
and she presents a bold solution. The answer, she says, is a new business model: a
nonprofit media organization, midway between a foundation and a joint stock company.
Cag shows how this model would enable the media to operate independent of outside
shareholders, advertisers, and government, relying instead on readers, employees, and
innovative methods of financing, including crowdfunding.
Cags prototype is designed to offer new ways to share and
transmit power. It meets the challenges of the digital revolution
and the realities of the twenty-first century, inspired by a central
idea: that news, like education, is a public good. Saving the Media
will be a key document in a debate whose stakes are nothing less
crucial than the vitality of democracy.
Julia Cag is Assistant Professor in Economics at Sciences Po Paris.

Bone Rooms

From Scientific Racism to Human Prehistory in Museums


Samuel J. Redman
In 1864 a U.S. army doctor dug up the remains of a Dakota man who had been killed in
Minnesota. Carefully recording his observations, he sent the skeleton to a museum in
Washington, DC, that was collecting human remains for research. In the bone rooms of
this museum and others like it, a scientific revolution was unfolding that would change our
understanding of the human body, race, and prehistory.
In Bone Rooms Samuel Redman unearths the story of how human remains became highly
sought-after artifacts for both scientific research and public display. Seeking evidence to
support new theories of human evolution and racial classification, collectors embarked on
a global competition to recover the best specimens of skeletons, mummies, and fossils.
The Smithsonian Institution built the largest collection of human remains in the United

up in cities and on university campuses across America. When the San Diego Museum of
Man opened in 1915, it mounted the largest exhibition of human skeletons ever presented
to the public.
The study of human remains yielded discoveries that increasingly discredited racial theory;

engagement were largely set by the surge of collecting that was already waning by World
War II.

Lysenkos Ghost
Epigenetics and Russia
Loren Graham
The Soviet agronomist Trofim Lysenko became one of the most notorious figures in
twentieth-century science after his genetic theories were discredited decades ago. Yet
some scientists, even in the West, now claim that discoveries in the field of epigenetics
prove that he was right after all. Seeking to get to the bottom of Lysenkos rehabilitation in
certain Russian scientific circles, Loren Graham reopens the case, granting his theories an
impartial hearing to determine whether new developments in molecular biology validate
his claims.
In the 1930s Lysenko advanced a theory of nutrients to explain plant development,
basing his insights on experiments which, he claimed, showed one could manipulate
environmental conditions such as temperature to convert a winter wheat variety into a
spring variety. He considered the inheritance of acquired characteristicswhich he called
the internalization of environmental conditionsthe primary mechanism of heredity.
Although his methods were slipshod and his results were never duplicated, his ideas fell
on fertile ground during a time of widespread famine in the Soviet Union.
Recently, a hypothesis called epigenetic transgenerational inheritance has suggested that
acquired characteristics may indeed occasionally appear in offspring. Some biologists
dispute the biological basis for this hypothesis. Graham examines these arguments, in
both Russia and the West, and shows how, in Russia, political currents are particularly
significant in affecting the debates.

Institute of Technology and author of The Ghost of the Executed Engineer: Technology

Dante

The Story of His Life


Marco Santagata
Translated by Richard Dixon
Marco Santagatas Dante: The Story of His Life illuminates one of the worlds supreme
poets from many angleswriter, philosopher, father, courtier, political partisan. Santagata
brings together a vast body of Italian scholarship on Dantes medieval world, untangles a
complex web of family and political relationships for English readers, and shows how the
composition of the Commedia was influenced by local and regional politics.
Santagata traces Dantes attempts to establish himself in Florentine society as a man of
both letters and action. Along the way, he raises intriguing possibilities. Did the poet suffer
from epilepsy? The condition would partly explain the intensely physical phenomenology
of love that Dante constructs in the Vita Nuova. Most importantly, Santagata highlights
Dantes constant need to readjust his political stancehis involvement with the pro-Papacy
Guelph faction as well as his network of patronsin response to unfolding events. Linking
these shifts to the changing ethical and political convictions expressed in the Commedia,
Santagata reveals the paradoxical achievement of Dantes masterpiece: a unified, universal
poem nonetheless intimately entwined with the day-to-day dealings of its author.
The most striking facet of Dantes personality was a belief in his unique destiny. In every
aspect of his lifehis birth under the sign of Gemini, falling in love with Beatrice, banishment
from FlorenceDante glimpsed the shadow of his fate. This idea, cultivated by the poet in
his youth, grew into the conviction that God had invested him with the prophetic mission
of saving humanity.

The Mormon Jesus


A Biography

John G. Turner
The nineteenth-century Mormon prophet Joseph Smith published a new scripture
dominated by the figure of Jesus Christ, dictated revelations presented as the words of
the Christian savior, spoke of encountering Jesus in visions, and told his followers that
their messiah and king would soon return to the earth. From the author of the definitive life
of Brigham Young comes a biography of the Mormon Jesus that revises and enriches our
understanding of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Over the past two hundred years, Jesus has connected the Latter-day Saints to broader
currents of Christianity, even while particular Mormon beliefs and practices have been
points of differentiation and conflict. The Latter-day Saints came to understand Jesus
Christ as the literal son of his father, the exalted brother of Gods other spirit children, who
should aspire to become like him. They gave new meaning to many titles for Jesus Christ:
Father, Son of God, Lord, Savior, Firstborn, Elder Brother, Bridegroom, and Jehovah.
While some early beliefs became canonized and others were discarded, Jesus Christ
remains central to Latter-day Saint scripture, doctrine, and religious experience.
Contemporary Mormon leaders miss no opportunity to proclaim their churchs devotion
to the Christian savior, in part because evangelical Protestants denounce Mormonism as a
non-Christian cult. This tension between Mormonisms distinctive claims and the churchs
desire to be accepted as Christian, John G. Turner argues, continues to shape Mormon
identity and attract new members to the church.

The Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom


Stephen M. Stigler
What gives statistics its unity as a science? Stephen Stigler sets forth the seven
foundational ideas of statisticsa scientific discipline related to but distinct from
mathematics and computer science.
Even the most basic ideaaggregation, exemplified by averagingis counterintuitive.
It allows one to gain information by discarding information, namely, the individuality
of the observations. Stiglers second pillar, information measurement, challenges the
importance of big data by noting that observations are not all equally important:
the amount of information in a data set is often proportional to only the square
root of the number of observations, not the absolute number. The third idea is
likelihood, the calibration of inferences with the use of probability. Intercomparison
is the principle that statistical comparisons do not need to be made with respect
to an external standard. The fifth pillar is regression, both a paradox (tall parents
on average produce shorter children; tall children on average have shorter parents)
and the basis of inference, including Bayesian inference and causal reasoning.
The sixth concept captures the importance of experimental designfor example,
by recognizing the gains to be had from a combinatorial approach with rigorous
randomization. The seventh idea is the residual: the notion that a complicated
phenomenon can be simplified by subtracting the effect of known causes, leaving a
residual phenomenon that can be explained more easily.
The Seven Pillars of Statistical Wisdom presents an original, unified account of statistical
science that will fascinate the interested layperson and engage the professional statistician.

Admiral Bill Halsey

A Naval Life

Thomas Alexander Hughes


William Halsey was the most famous naval officer of World War II. His fearlessness in carrier
raids against Japan, his steely resolve at Guadalcanal, and his impulsive blunder at the
Battle of Leyte Gulf made him the Patton of the Pacific and solidified his reputation as a
decisive, aggressive fighter prone to impetuous errors of judgment in the heat of battle. In
this definitive biography, Thomas Hughes punctures the popular caricature of the fighting
admiral to reveal the truth of Halseys personal and professional life as it was lived in times
of war and peace.
Halsey, the son of a Navy officer whose alcoholism scuttled a promising career, committed
himself wholeheartedly to naval life at an early age. An audacious and inspiring commander
to his men, he met the operational challenges of the battle at sea against Japan with
dramatically effective carrier strikes early in the war. Yet his greatest contribution to the
Allied victory was as commander of the combined sea, air, and land forces in the South
Pacific during the long slog up the Solomon Islands chain, one of the wars most daunting
battlegrounds. Halsey turned a bruising slugfest with the Japanese navy into a rout.
Skillfully mediating the army and navys constant strategy disputesas well as the clashes
of ego between General Douglas MacArthur and Admiral Chester NimitzHalsey was the
linchpin of Americas Pacific war effort when its outcome was far from certain.

Governing Behavior

How Nerve Cell Dictatorships and Democracies Control Everything We Do


Ari Berkowitz
An accessible and engaging review of modern theories of neuroethology. Berkowitz presents
an account of the experiments behind the theories that is at once clear, concise, scholarly,
and entertaining.
Leslie Tolbert, University of Arizona
From simple reflexes to complex choreographies of movement, all animal behavior is
governed by a nervous system. But what kind of government is ita dictatorship or a
democracy?
Nervous systems consist of circuits of interconnected nerve cells (neurons) that transmit
and receive information via electrical signals. Every moment, each neuron adds up
stimulating and inhibiting inputs from many other neurons to determine whether to send
an electrical signal to its recipients. Some circuits are dominated by a single dictator
neuron that gathers information from many sources and then issues commands, such
as the Mauthner neuron that triggers escape in fish. In other more democratic circuits,
such as those mediating eye movements in monkeys, the outcome is determined by a
tally of votes from a large population of neurons. Rhythmic movements like breathing
and locomotion are generated by government programs within the central nervous
system, but modified by a soup of chemicals and by free marketlike feedback from
sensory neurons. Nervous systems also use sophisticated surveillance of the surrounding
environment and keep track of their own decisions in order to avoid internal conflicts.
Nervous systems are not restricted to using one set of procedures at a time. They have
evolved over long periods to control behaviors in whichever ways are most effective, and
they essentially combine multiple forms of government simultaneously.
Engaging and accessible, Governing Behavior explains the variety of structures and
strategies that control behavior, while providing an overview of thought-provoking debates
and cutting-edge research in neurobiology.

The Discovery of Chance

The Life and Thought of Alexander Herzen


Aileen Kelly

This book is brilliantly argued, beautifully written, and profoundly thought-through.


This will be one of a handful of classics about Russian thinkers.
Gary Saul Morson, Northwestern University

Alexander Herzenphilosopher, novelist, essayist, political agitator, and one of the leading
Russian intellectuals of the nineteenth centurywas as famous in his day as Tolstoy and
Dostoevsky. While he is remembered for his masterpiece My Past and Thoughts and as the
father of Russian socialism, his contributions to the history of ideas defy easy categorization
because they are so numerous. Aileen Kelly presents the first fully rounded study of the
farsighted genius whom Isaiah Berlin called the forerunner of much twentieth-century
thought.
In an era dominated by ideologies of human progress, Herzen resisted them because
they conflicted with his sense of reality, a sense honed by his unusually comprehensive
understanding of history, philosophy, and the natural sciences. Following his unconventional
decision to study science at university, he came to recognize the implications of early
evolutionary theory, not just for the natural world but for human history. In this respect, he
was a Darwinian even before Darwin.
Socialism for Russia, as Herzen conceived it, was not an ideologyleast of all Marxian
scientific socialismbut a concrete means of grappling with unique historical
circumstances, a way for Russians to combine the best of Western achievements with the
possibilities of their own cultural milieu in order to move forward. In the same year that
Marx declared communism to be the solution to the riddle of history, Herzen denied that
any such solution could exist. History, like nature, was contingentan improvisation both
constrained and encouraged by chance.

Adultery

Infidelity and the Law


Deborah L. Rhode

Adultery is an extraordinarily well-researched, well-reasoned, and downright fascinating


book. It is engaging enough to be enjoyed by general readers, rigorous enough to be used in
law school and college classrooms, and persuasive enough that it will have a big influence on
courts as they seek to update adultery law.
Joan C. Williams, University of California, Hastings College of Law
At a time when legal and social prohibitions on sexual relationships are declining,
Americans are still nearly unanimous in their condemnation of adultery. Over 90 percent
disapprove of cheating on a spouse. In her comprehensive account of the legal and social
consequences of infidelity, Deborah Rhode explores why. She exposes the harms that
criminalizing adultery inflicts, and she makes a compelling case for repealing adultery laws
and prohibitions on polygamy.
In the twenty-two states where adultery is technically illegal although widely practiced, it
can lead to civil lawsuits, job termination, and loss of child custody. It is routinely used to
threaten and tarnish public officials and undermine military careers. And running through
the history of anti-adultery legislation is a double standard that has repeatedly punished
women more severely than men. An unwritten law allowing a man to avoid conviction
for killing his wifes lover remained common well into the twentieth century. Murder under
these circumstances was considered an act of understandable passion.
Adultery has been called the most creative of sins, and novelists and popular media have
lavished attention on sexual infidelity. As a focus of serious study, however, adultery has
received short shrift. Rhode combines a comprehensive account of the legal and social
consequences of adultery with a forceful argument for halting the states policing of
fidelity.
Deborah L. Rhode is Ernest W. McFarland Professor of Law and Director of the Center
on the Legal Profession at Stanford University. She is author of Justice and Gender: Sex

Emily Dickinsons Poems

As She Preserved Them


EDITED BY

Cristanne Miller

This new edition of Dickinsons poems attempts nothing less than to shift the center of gravity
and value in present-day Dickinson studies back to the fascicles, the poets own manuscript
books. Miller has done the community of general readers as well as scholars a huge service in
compiling this edition.
Mary Loeffelholz, Northeastern University
Emily Dickinsons Poems: As She Preserved Them is a major new edition of Dickinsons
verse intended for the scholar, student, and general reader. It foregrounds the copies of
poems that Dickinson retained for herself during her lifetime, in the form she retained them.
This is the only edition of Dickinsons complete poems to distinguish in easy visual form
the approximately 1,100 poems she took pains to copy carefully onto folded sheets in fair
handarguably to preserve them for posterityfrom the poems she kept in rougher form
or apparently did not retain. It is the first edition to include the alternate words and phrases
Dickinson wrote on copies of the poems she retained. Readers can see, and determine for
themselves, the extent to which a poem is resolved or fluid.
With its clear and uncluttered pages, the volume recommends itself as a valuable resource
for the classroom and to general readers. A Dickinson scholar, Miller supplies helpful notes
that gloss the poets quotations and allusions and the contexts of her writing. Millers
Introduction describes Dickinsons practices in copying and circulating poems and
summarizes contentious debates within Dickinson scholarship.
Emily Dickinsons Poems: As She Preserved Them brings us closer to the writing practice of
a crucially important American poet and provides new ways of thinking about Dickinson,
allowing us to see more fully her methods of composing, circulating, and copying than
previous editions have allowed. It will be valued by all readers of Dickinsons poetry.

Finding Time

The Economics of Work-Life Conflict


Heather Boushey
This thoughtful and engaging book exposes a vitally important and timely topic, and
Boushey is uniquely positioned to address it.
Ruth Milkman, City University of New York
Employers today are demanding more and more of employees time. And from campaign
barbecues to the blogosphere, workers across the United States are raising the same
worried question: How can I get ahead at my job while making sure my family doesnt fall
behind?
Heather Boushey argues that resolving work-life conflicts is as vital for individuals and
families as it is essential for realizing the countrys productive potential. The federal
government, however, largely ignores the connection between individual work-life conflicts
and more sustainable economic growth. The consequence: business and government treat
the most important things in lifehealth, children, eldersas matters for workers to care
about entirely on their own time and dime. That might have worked in the past, but only
thanks to a hidden subsidy: the American Wife, a behind-the-scenes, stay-at-home fixer
of what economists call market failures. When women left the homeout of desire and
necessitythe old system fell apart. Families and the larger economy have yet to recover.
But change is possible. Finding Time presents detailed innovations to help Americans find
the time they need and help businesses attract more productive workers. A policy wonk
with working-class roots and a deep understanding of the stresses faced by families up
and down the income ladder, Heather Boushey demonstrates with clarity and compassion
that economic efficiency and equity do not have to be enemies. They can be reconciled
if we have the vision to forge a new social contract for business, government, and private
citizens.

A Floating Chinaman

Fantasy and Failure across the Pacific


Hua Hsu
Who gets to speak for China? During the interwar years, when American condescension
toward barbarous China yielded to a fascination with all things Chinese, a circle of
writers sparked an unprecedented public conversation about American-Chinese relations.
Hua Hsu tells the story of how they became ensnared in bitter rivalries over which one
could claim the title of Americas leading China expert.
The rapturous reception that greeted The Good EarthPearl Bucks novel about a Chinese
peasant familyspawned a literary market for sympathetic writings about China. Stories of
enterprising Americans making their way in a land with four hundred million customers,
as Carl Crow said, found an eager audience as well. But on the marginsin Chinatowns,
on Ellis Island, and inside FBI surveillance memosa different conversation about the
possibilities of a shared future was taking place.
A Floating Chinaman takes its title from a lost manuscript by H. T. Tsiang, an eccentric
Chinese immigrant writer who self-published a series of visionary novels during this
time. Tsiang discovered the American literary market to be far less accommodating to
his more skeptical view of U.S.-China relations. His floating Chinaman, unmoored and
in-between, imagines a critical vantage point from which to understand the new ideas of
China circulating between the world warsand today, as well.

Politics against Domination


Ian Shapiro
An exceptional book that brings together political philosophy, empirical political science,
political economy, history, occasional natural science, and much else.
Jeffrey Green, University of Pennsylvania
Presents the definitive case for a minimalist version of majoritarian democracy to scholars,
policymakers, and general readers.
Elisabeth Ellis, University of Otago, New Zealand
Ian Shapiro makes a compelling case that the overriding purpose of politics should be to
combat domination. Moreover, he shows how to put resistance to domination into practice
at home and abroad. This is a major work of applied political theory, a profound challenge
to utopian visions, and a guide to fundamental problems of justice and distribution.
Shapiro builds his case from the ground up, but he also spells out its implications for pressing
debates about electoral systems, independent courts, money in politics, minimum wages,
and the vulnerabilities of minorities. He takes up debates over international institutions
and world government, intervention to prevent genocide and ethnic cleansing, and the
challenges of fostering democracy abroad. Shapiro is brutally realistic in his assessments
of politics and power, yet he makes an inspiring case that we can reasonably hope to
devise ways to combat domination and act on them. Gleaning insights from the battle
against slavery, the creation of modern welfare states, the civil rights movement, Occupy
Wall Street, the Tea Party, and the worldwide campaign against sweatshops, among other
sources, Shapiro explains the ingredients of effective coalitions for political change and
how best to press them into the service of resisting domination.
Politics against Domination ranges over political science, psychology, economics, history,
sociology, and law. It will be of interest to seasoned veterans of political theory in all these
disciplines. But it is written in the lucid and penetrating style for which Shapiro is widely
known, making it readily accessible to newcomers.

MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies. He is also author of The Real World

Strangers in Our Midst

The Political Philosophy of Immigration


David Miller
This is a polished and carefully wrought argumentreally, an extended series of arguments
on an urgent topic by one of the best political theorists in the world.
Russell Muirhead, Dartmouth College
It is not unusual for people in countries with limited job opportunities and economic
resources to want to seek a better life in different lands. This is especially so for those
who come from countries where they are treated poorly, discriminated against, or worse.
But moving from one country to another in large numbers creates serious problems for
receiving countries as well as those sending them.
How should Western democracies respond to the many millions of people who want to
settle in their societies? Economists and human rights advocates tend to downplay the
considerable cultural and demographic impact of immigration on host societies. Seeking
to balance the rights of immigrants with the legitimate concerns of citizens, Strangers
in Our Midst brings a bracing dose of realism to this debate. David Miller defends the
right of democratic states to control their borders and decide upon the future size, shape,
and cultural makeup of their populations. Reframing immigration as a question of political
philosophy, he asks how democracy within a state can be reconciled with the rights of
those outside its borders. A just immigration policy must distinguish refugees from
economic migrants and determine the rights that immigrants in both categories acquire,
once admitted. But being welcomed into a country as a prospective citizen does more
than confer benefits: it imposes responsibilities. In Millers view, immigrants share with
the state an obligation to integrate into their adopted societies, even if it means shedding
some cultural baggage from their former home.

Political Political Theory


Essays on Institutions

Reality and Its Dreams


Raymond Geuss

Jeremy Waldron
Political institutions are the main
subject of political theoryor
they ought to be. Jeremy Waldron
argues for reorienting the theory
of politics toward the institutions
of modern democracy and the
mechanisms through which democratic ideals are achieved.
Too many political theorists are
preoccupied with the nature of
justice, liberty, and equality, at
the cost of ignoring the governmental institutions needed to
achieve them. By contrast, political scientists have kept institutions in view but deploy a meager set of value-conceptions in analyzing them. Waldron considers the uses and abuses of an array of institutions and traditions,
from separation of powers and bicameralism to judicial review of
legislation, the principle of loyal opposition, the nature of representation, accountability, and the rule of law. He provides a critical
perspective on the role of courts in a constitutional democracy and
offers an illuminating critique of the contrasting views of Hannah
Arendt and Isaiah Berlin. Even if political theorists remain fixated on
expounding the philosophical foundations of democracy, Waldron
argues, a firmer grasp of the means through which democracy is
realized is also needed. This is what political political theory means:
theory addressing the way institutions orchestrate resolutions to
disputes over social ideals.

These essays are exhilarating evidence of their authors wide,


thoughtful, and sharply perceptive reading of the signs and signals
of our culture.
Hans Sluga, University of California at Berkeley
In Reality and Its Dreams, one
of the most inventive voices in
political philosophy, and a trenchant critic of the fields dominant
assumptions, challenges the normative turnthe idea that the
right approach to politics is to start
from thinking abstractly about our
normative views and then, when
they have been clarified and systematized, apply them to judging
political structures, decisions, and
events. Rather, Raymond Geuss
claims, the study of politics should
focus on the sphere of real politics,
not least because normative judgments always arise from concrete
configurations of power, including ideological power.
It is possible to do this without succumbing to a numbing or toxic
form of relativism or abandoning utopianism, if utopianism is understood as the impulse to think the impossible in politics, to articulate
deep-seated desires that cannot be realized under current conditions, and to imagine how conditions that seem invariant can be
changed. Geuss ranges widely, exploring past and present ideas
about envy, love, satire, and evil in the work of figures as diverse as
John Rawls, St. Augustine, Rabelais, and Russell Brand. His essays
provide a bracing critique of ideas, too often unexamined, that
shape and misshape our intellectual and political worlds.

Prophecy without Contempt


Religious Discourse in the Public Square
Cathleen Kaveny

Naturalism, Realism, and


Normativity
Hilary Putnam

What a welcome book! Kaveny takes a wonderfully fresh and


important approach that deserves to be pondered by all who hope to
understand what is going on today in the public square.
John OMalley, Georgetown University
The contemporary culture wars
have as much to do with rhetorical style as with moral substance.
Cathleen Kaveny reframes the
debate about the role of religion
in the public square by focusing
on a powerful stream of religious
discourse in American political
speech: the Biblical rhetoric of
prophetic indictment.
American reformers for all manner
of causesabolitionists, defenders of slavery, prohibitionists, and
civil rights leadershave echoed
the thundering condemnations
of the Hebrew prophets in decrying what they see as social evils.
Although rooted in the denunciations of Puritan sermons, the
rhetoric has evolved to match the politics of a pluralistic society.
Kaveny shows how the fiery rhetoric of prophetic indictment operates in very different ways than the cooler language of deliberation
and policy analysis. Kaveny contends that prophetic indictment is
a form of moral chemotherapy: it can be strong medicine against
moral cancers threatening the body politic, but administered injudiciously, it can do more harm than good. Kaveny draws upon a
wide array of sources to develop criteria for the constructive use
of prophetic indictment. In modern times, Martin Luther King Jr.
exemplifies how to use prophetic rhetoric to facilitate reform and
reconciliation rather than revenge.

Hilary Putnams philosophical
oeuvre has been called the
history of recent philosophy in
outlinean intellectual achievement that has shaped disciplinary
fields from epistemology to ethics, metaphysics to the philosophy of physics, the philosophy of
mathematics to the philosophy
of mind. Naturalism, Realism, and
Normativity offers new avenues
into the thought of one of the
most influential minds in contemporary analytic philosophy.
The essays collected here cover
a range of interconnected topics including naturalism, commonsense and scientific realism, ethics, perception, language and
linguistics, and skepticism. Aptly illustrating Putnams willingness
to revisit and revise past arguments, they contain important new
insights and freshly illuminate formulations that will be familiar
to students of his work: his rejection of the idea that an absolute
conception of the world is obtainable; his criticism of a nihilistic
view of ethics that claims to be scientifically based; his pathbreaking distinction between sensations and apperceptions; and his use
of externalist semantics to invalidate certain forms of skepticism.
This volume reflects Putnams latest thinking on how to articulate a
theory of naturalism which acknowledges that normative phenomena form an ineluctable part of human experience, thereby reconciling scientific and humanistic views of the world that have long

Cool Characters

Irony and American Fiction


Lee Konstantinou
Charting a new course in the criticism of postwar fiction, Cool Characters examines the
changing status of irony in American cultural and political life from World War II to the
present, showing how irony migrated from the countercultural margins of the 1950s to
the cultural mainstream of the 1980s. Along the way, irony was absorbed into postmodern
theory and ultimately became a target of recent writers who have sought to create a
practice of postirony that might move beyond its limitations.
As a concept, irony has been theorized from countless angles, but Cool Characters argues
that it is best understood as an ethos: an attitude or orientation toward the world, embodied
in different character types, articulated via literary style. Lee Konstantinou traces five
such typesthe hipster, the punk, the believer, the coolhunter, and the occupierin new
interpretations of works by authors including Ralph Ellison, William S. Burroughs, Thomas
Pynchon, Kathy Acker, Dave Eggers, William Gibson, Jennifer Egan, Jonathan Lethem, and
Rachel Kushner.
For earlier generations of writers, irony was something vital to be embraced, but beginning
most dramatically with David Foster Wallace, dissatisfaction with irony, especially with its
alleged tendency to promote cynicism and political passivity, gained force. Postironythe
endpoint in an arc that begins with naive belief, passes through irony, and arrives at a new
form of contingent convictionilluminates the literary environment that has flourished in
the United States since the 1990s.

The One King Lear


Sir Brian Vickers
This is a big, bold book, a major piece of scholarship for everyone to engage with. No one
interested in the texts of Shakespeares work (and not only in the texts of King Lear) will be
able to ignore it.
Peter Holland, University of Notre Dame
King Lear exists in two different texts: the Quarto (1608) and the Folio (1623). Because
each supplies passages missing in the other, for over 200 years editors combined the two
to form a single text, the basis for all modern productions. Then in the 1980s a group of
influential scholars argued that the two texts represent different versions of King Lear, that
Shakespeare revised his play in light of theatrical performance. The two-text theory has
since hardened into orthodoxy. Now for the first time in a book-length argument, one of
the worlds most eminent Shakespeare scholars challenges the two-text theory. At stake is
the way Shakespeares greatest play is read and performed.
Sir Brian Vickers demonstrates that the cuts in the Quarto were in fact carried out by the
printer because he had underestimated the amount of paper he would need. Paper was
an expensive commodity in the early modern period, and printers counted the number
of lines or words in a manuscript before ordering their supply. As for the Folio, whereas
the revisionists claim that Shakespeare cut the text in order to alter the balance between
characters, Vickers sees no evidence of his agency. These cuts were likely made by the
theater company to speed up the action. Vickers includes responses to the revisionist
theory made by leading literary scholars, who show that the Folio cuts damage the plays
moral and emotional structure and are impracticable on the stage.
Sir Brian Vickers is Distinguished Senior Fellow, School of Advanced Study, University of
London. His many books on William Shakespeare include Shakespeare, Co-Author.

The Lyric in the Age of the Brain


Nikki Skillman
Skillmans writing is eloquent, often beautiful, meticulously alert to
detail, and her judgments are sound and sensitive.
Jahan Ramazani, University of Virginia
Exploration of our inner life once
seemed a privileged domain of
lyric poetry. Scientific discoveries, however, have recently transformed understandings of the
mind, supplying physiological
explanations for what was once
believed to be transcendental.
Caught between a powerful but
reductive scientific view of the
mind and traditional literary metaphors for consciousness that
seem ever more naive, postwar
American poets have struggled
to articulate a vision of human
consciousness that is both scientifically informed and poetically truthful.
This book examines several contemporary poetsRobert Lowell,
A. R. Ammons, Robert Creeley, James Merrill, John Ashbery, Jorie
Graham, and experimentalists such as Harryette Mullen and Tan
Linto discern what new poetic forms and depictions of selfhood
this perplexity forces into being. Nikki Skillman shows that under
the sway of mind science, poets ascribe ever less agency to the self,
ever less transformative potential to the imagination. But in readings
that unravel factional oppositions in contemporary American
poetry, Skillman argues that the lyrica genre accustomed to
revealing expansive aesthetic possibilities within narrow formal
limitsproves uniquely positioned to register and redeem the
dispersals of human mystery that loom in the age of the brain.

The Topological Imagination


Spheres, Edges, and Islands
Angus Fletcher
We are given a subtle new synthesis, new insights into our site and
situation and, at least in this reader, an incitement to poeticize.
Dorion Sagan
Boldly original and boundary
defining, this book clears a space
for an intellectual encounter with
the shape of human imagining.
Joining two commonly opposed
domains, literature and mathematics, Angus Fletcher maps the
imaginations contours and dimensions, and along the way compels
us to re-envision our human existence on the most unusual sphere
ever imagined, Earth.
Words and numbers are the twin
powers that create value in our
world. Poetry and other forms of
creative literature stretch our ability to evaluate through the use of
metaphors. In this sense, the literary imagination aligns with topology, the branch of mathematics that studies shape and space. The
mysterious dimensionality of human existence, Fletcher says, is
connected to our inhabiting a world that also inhabits us. Theories
of cyclical history reflect circulatory biological patterns; the daynight cycle shapes our adaptive, emergent patterns of thought;
the topology of islands shapes the evolution of evolutionary theory.
Connecting literature, philosophy, and science, The Topological
Imagination is an urgent and transformative work, and a profound
invitation to thought.

University of New York Graduate School and author of A New

Science

Cancer Stem Cells

Philosophy and Therapies


Lucie Laplane

Laplane places us right in the center of an urgently important discussion of cancer stem
cells and the therapies that should accompany different theories. Her fresh philosophical
perspective introduces us to a science in process, where the outcome is unknown and even the
terms of debate remain contested.
Jane Maienschein, author of Embryos under the Microscope
An innovative theory proposes a new therapeutic strategy to break the stalemate in
the war on cancer. It is called cancer stem cell (CSC) theory, and Lucie Laplane offers a
comprehensive analysis, based on an original interdisciplinary approach that combines
biology, biomedical history, and philosophy.
Rather than treat cancer by aggressively trying to eliminate all cancerous cellswith
harmful side effects for patientsCSC theory suggests the possibility of targeting the
CSCs, a small fraction of cells that lie at the root of cancers. CSCs are cancer cells that also
have the defining properties of stem cellsthe abilities to self-renew and to differentiate.
According to this theory, only CSCs and no other cancer cells can induce tumor formation.
To date, researchers have not agreed on the defining feature of CSCstheir stemness.
Drawing from a philosophical perspective, Laplane shows that there are four possible
ways to understand this property: stemness can be categorical (an intrinsic property of
stem cells), dispositional (an intrinsic property whose expression depends on external
stimuli), relational (an extrinsic property determined by a cells relationship with the
microenvironment), or systemic (an extrinsic property controlled at the system level). Our
ability to cure cancers may well depend upon determining how these definitions apply to
different types of cancers.
Lucie Laplane is researcher in Philosophy of Science at University Paris IPanthon

The End of Sex and the Future of


Human Reproduction
Henry T. Greely
Greely has written an exceptional book. Anyone interested in the technology of human
reproduction and what it holds for humanitys future will thoroughly enjoy the read.
Judith Daar, Whittier Law School
We owe it to ourselves, to the society we live in, to our children and our childrens children to
think long and hard about the arguments Greely presents before we make choices about the
future of human reproduction. Exciting and thought-provoking.
Jennifer Merchant, Universit de Paris II
Within twenty, maybe forty, years most people in developed countries will stop having
sex for the purpose of reproduction. Instead, prospective parents will be told as much
as they wish to know about the genetic makeup of dozens of embryos, and they will pick
one or two for implantation, gestation, and birth. And it will be safe, lawful, and free. In
this work of prophetic scholarship, Henry T. Greely explains the revolutionary biological
technologies that make this future a seeming inevitability and sets out the deep ethical and
legal challenges humanity faces as a result.
Developments in genetics and stem cell research are giving rise to new techniques that
will vastly improve preimplantation genetic diagnosis (PGD) and in vitro fertilization (IVF),
making sexless reproduction not just possible but cheap and easywhat Greely coins
easy PGD. The first child born using PGD is now 25 years old, and thousands more are born
each year. Advanced by economic, social, legal, and political forces, the emerging science
has made the concerns that were once the stuff of science fiction into real problems that
our children and grandchildren will face routinely.
Deeply informed by Greelys command of both science and law, The End of Sex and the
Future of Human Reproduction is a book for parents, citizens, and all those, born and
unborn, who will face the consequences of a new era of human reproduction.
Henry T. Greely is Deane F. and Kate Edelman Johnson Professor of Law and Professor,

History Religion

The Irish Enlightenment


Michael Brown
During the eighteenth-century Enlightenment, Scotland and England produced such wellknown figures as David Hume, Adam Smith, and John Locke. Irelands contribution to this
revolution in Western thought has received much less attention. Offering a corrective to
the view that Ireland was intellectually stagnant during this period, The Irish Enlightenment
considers a range of artists, writers, and philosophers who were full participants in the panEuropean experiment that forged the modern world.
Michael Brown explores the ideas and innovations percolating in political pamphlets,
economic and religious tracts, and literary works. John Toland, Francis Hutcheson,
Jonathan Swift, George Berkeley, Edmund Burke, Maria Edgeworth, and other luminaries,
he shows, participated in a lively debate about the capacity of humans to create a just
society. In a nation recovering from confessional warfare, religious questions loomed large.
How should the state be organized to allow contending Christian communities to worship
freely? Was the public confession of faith compatible with civil society? In a society shaped
by opposing religious beliefs, who is enlightened and who is intolerant?
The Irish Enlightenment opened up the possibility of a tolerant society, but it was shortlived. Divisions concerning methodological commitments to empiricism and rationalism
resulted in an increasingly antagonistic conflict over questions of religious inclusion.
This fracturing of the Irish Enlightenment eventually destroyed the possibility of civilized,
rational discussion of confessional differences. By the end of the eighteenth century,
Ireland again entered a dark period of civil unrest whose effects were still evident in the
late twentieth century.

Aberdeen.

Shantytown, USA

Forgotten Landscapes of the Working Poor


Lisa Goff
The word shantytown conjures images of crowded slums in developing nations. Though
their history is largely forgotten, shantytowns were a prominent feature of one developing
nation in particular: the United States. Lisa Goff restores shantytowns to the central place
they once occupied in Americas urban landscape, showing how the basic but resourcefully
constructed dwellings of Americas working poor were not merely the byproducts of
economic hardship but potent assertions of self-reliance.
In the nineteenth century, poor workers built shantytowns across Americas frontiers and its
booming industrial cities. Settlements covered large swaths of urban property, including
a twenty-block stretch of Manhattan, much of Brooklyns waterfront, and present-day
Dupont Circle in Washington, DC. Names like Tinkersville and Hayti evoked the occupations
and ethnicities of shantytown residents, who were most often European immigrants and
African Americans. These inhabitants defended their civil rights and went to court to
protect their property and resist eviction, claiming the benefits of middle-class citizenship
without its bourgeois trappings.
Over time, middle-class contempt for shantytowns increased. When veterans erected
an encampment near the U.S. Capitol in the 1930s, President Hoover ordered the army
to destroy it, thus inspiring the Depression-era slang Hoovervilles. Twentieth-century
reforms in urban zoning and public housing, introduced as progressive efforts to provide
better dwellings, curtailed the growth of shantytowns. Yet their legacy is still felt in sites of
political activism, from shanties on college campuses protesting South African apartheid
to the tent cities of Occupy Wall Street demonstrations.
Lisa Goff is a member of the Department of English at the University of Virginia.

Accidental State

Chiang Kai-shek, the United States, and the Making of Taiwan


Hsiao-ting Lin
The existence of two Chinese statesone controlling mainland China, the other controlling
the island of Taiwanis often understood as a seemingly inevitable outcome of the
Chinese civil war. Defeated by Mao Zedong, Chiang Kai-sheks Nationalists fled to Taiwan to
establish a rival state, thereby creating the Two Chinas dilemma that vexes international
diplomacy to this day. Accidental State challenges this conventional narrative to offer a
new perspective on the founding of modern Taiwan.
Hsiao-ting Lin marshals extensive research in recently declassified archives to show that
the creation of a Taiwanese state in the early 1950s owed more to serendipity than to
careful geostrategic planning. It was the cumulative outcome of ad hoc half-measures and
imperfect compromises, particularly when it came to the Nationalists often contentious
relationship with the United States.

Taiwans political status was fraught from the start. The island had been formally ceded to
Japan after the First Sino-Japanese War, and during World War II the Allies promised Chiang
that Taiwan would revert to Chinese rule after Japans defeat. But as the Chinese civil war
turned against the Nationalists, U.S. policymakers reassessed the wisdom of backing
Chiang. The idea of placing Taiwan under United Nations trusteeship gained traction.
Cold War realities, and the fear of Taiwan falling into Communist hands, led Washington
to recalibrate U.S. policy. Yet American support of a Taiwan-based Republic of China
remained ambivalent, and Taiwan had to eke out a place for itself in international affairs as
a de facto, if not fully sovereign, state.

Institution at Stanford University.

Afro-Latin America
Black Lives, 16002000

George Reid Andrews


Beautifully written by an eminent scholar, Afro-Latin America provides readers with new
approaches to understanding the African diaspora in the Americas. George Reid Andrews
masterfully shows that there is no area of the hemisphere that has not been touched by people
of African descent.
Jeffrey Lesser, author of Immigration, Ethnicity, and National Identity in Brazil
Of the almost 11 million Africans who came to the Americas between 1500 and 1870,
two-thirds came to Spanish America and Brazil. Over four centuries, Africans and their
descendantsboth free and enslavedparticipated in the political, social, and cultural
movements that indelibly shaped their countries colonial and post-independence pasts.
Yet until very recently Afro-Latin Americans were conspicuously excluded from narratives
of their hemispheres history.
George Reid Andrews seeks to redress this damaging omission by making visible the
past and present lives and labors of black Latin Americans in their New World home. He
cogently reconstructs the Afro-Latin heritage from the paper trail of slavery and freedom,
from the testimonies of individual black men and women, from the writings of visiting
African-Americans, and from the efforts of activists and scholars of the twentieth century
to bring the Afro-Latin heritage fully into public view.
While most Latin American countries have acknowledged the legacy of slavery, the story
still told throughout the region is one of racial democracythe supposedly successful
integration and acceptance of African descendents into society. From the 1970s to today,
black civil rights movements have challenged that narrative and demanded that its
promises of racial equality be made real. They have also called for fuller acknowledgment
of Afro-Latin Americans centrality in their countries national histories. Afro-Latin America
brings that story up to the present, examining debates currently taking place throughout
the region on how best to achieve genuine racial equality.

Pittsburgh.

David Brophy

Alejandra Dubcovsky

Reform and Revolution on the Russia-China Frontier

The meeting of the Russian and


Qing empires in the nineteenth
century had dramatic consequences for Central Asias Muslim communities. Along this
frontier, a new political space
emerged, shaped by competing imperial and spiritual loyalties, cross-border economic
and social ties, and the revolutions that engulfed Russia and
China in the early twentieth
century. David Brophy explores
how a community of Central
Asian Muslims responded to
these historic changes by reinventing themselves as the modern Uyghur nation.
A diverse diaspora of Muslims from Chinas northwest province of
Xinjiang spread to Russian territory and became enmeshed with
national and transnational discourses of identity among Russias
Muslims. In the tumult of the Bolshevik Revolution, the rhetoric of
Uyghur nationhood emerged as a rallying point. A shifting alliance
of constituencies invoked the idea of a Uyghur nation to secure a
place for itself in Soviet Central Asia and to spread the revolution
to Xinjiang. Although its existence was contested in the fractious
politics of the 1920s, in the 1930s the Uyghur nation achieved
official recognition in the Soviet Union and China. Grounded in
archives from across Eurasia, Uyghur Nation provides crucial
background to the ongoing contest for the history and identity of
Xinjiang.

Communication in the Early American South

In the flow of messages and information across cultural boundaries,


Dubcovsky casts native and colonial relations in a revealing new light.

Alan Taylor, University of Virginia


Informed Power maps the intersecting channels of information
exchange in the early American
South, exploring how people in
the colonial world came into possession of knowledge in a region
that lacked a regular mail system
or a printing press until the 1730s.
Challenging the notion of
early colonial America as an
uninformed backwater, Alejandra Dubcovsky uncovers the
ingenious ways its inhabitants
acquired news through largely
oral networks. Information circulated through the region via spies, scouts, traders, missionaries,
and other ad hoc couriersand by encounters of sheer chance with
hunting parties, shipwrecked sailors, captured soldiers, or fugitive
slaves. The different and innovative ways that Indians, Africans, and
Europeans struggled to make sense of their world created communication networks that linked together people who otherwise
shared no consensus of the physical, social, or political boundaries
shaping their lives.
Exchanging information was a way of establishing and maintaining
relationships, of articulating values and enforcing priorities. At the
heart of Dubcovskys study are important lessons about the nexus
of information and power in the early American South.

Legal Plunder

Households and Debt Collection in


Late Medieval Europe

Natural Interests

The Contest over Environment in Modern France


Caroline Ford

Daniel Lord Smail


As Europe began to grow rich
during the Middle Ages, its
wealth materialized in the wellmade clothes, linens, and wares
of ordinary households. In a
world without banking, household goods became valuable
commodities that often substituted for hard currency. Pawnbrokers and resellers sprung
up throughout European cities,
helping push these goods into
circulation. Simultaneously, a
harshly coercive legal system
developed to ensure that debtors
paid their due.
Legal Plunder explains how the vigorous trade in goods that
grew up in fourteenth- and fifteenth-century Europe entangled
households in complex relationships of credit and debt. Acting in
the interests of creditors, sergeants of the law were empowered to
march into debtors homes and seize belongings equal in value to
the debt owed. These officials were cogs in a political machinery
of state-sponsored plunder. As Daniel Smail shows, one of the
common activities of medieval law courts was debt recovery, and
court records offer some of the most vivid descriptions of material
culture in this period, providing insight into the lives of men and
women living in a world on the cusp of modern capitalism. Then as
now, money and value were implicated in questions of power and
patterns of violence.

Challenging the conventional


wisdom that French environmentalism can be dated only to the
post-1945 period, Caroline Ford
argues that a broadly shared
environmental
consciousness
emerged in France much earlier.
Natural Interests unearths the distinctive features of French environmentalism, in which a large
cast of social actors played a role.
Besides scientific advances and
colonial expansion, nostalgia for
a vanishing pastoral countryside
and anxiety over the pressing
dangers of environmental degradation were important factors in the success of this movement.
War, political upheaval, and natural disastersespecially the
devastating floods of 1856 and 1910 in Pariscaused growing
worry over the damage wrought by deforestation, urbanization,
and industrialization. The natural world took on new value for
Frances urban bourgeoisie, as both a site of aesthetic longing and
a destination for tourism. Not only naturalists and scientists but
politicians, engineers, writers, and painters took up environmental
causes. Imperialism and international dialogue were also
instrumental in shaping environmental consciousness, as the
unfamiliar climates of Frances overseas possessions changed
perceptions of the natural world. By the early twentieth century,
France had adopted innovative conservationist legislation, created
parks and nature reserves, and called for international cooperation
on environmental questions.

The Empire That Would Not Die

Beyond Timbuktu

The Paradox of Eastern Roman Survival, 640740

An Intellectual History of Muslim West Africa

John Haldon

Ousmane Oumar Kane


The eastern Roman Empire was
the largest state in western Eurasia in the sixth century. Only a
century later, it was a fraction
of its former size. Surrounded
by enemies, ravaged by warfare
and disease, the empire seemed
destined to collapse. Yet it did
not die. In this holistic analysis,
John Haldon elucidates the factors that allowed the empire to
survive against all odds into the
eighth century.

By 700 CE, three-quarters of the


empires territory had been lost
to the Islamic Caliphate. But the rugged territories of Anatolia and
the Aegean held strategic advantages, preventing enemies from
permanently occupying imperial towns and cities while leaving
them vulnerable to Roman counterattacks. The more the empire
shrank, the more it became centered around Constantinople,
whose ability to withstand siege after siege proved decisive. The
crisis forced the imperial court, the provincial ruling classes, and
the church closer together. State and church together embodied
a sacralized empire that held the emperor, not the patriarch, as
Christendoms symbolic head. Despite territorial losses, what
remained became the heartland of a medieval Christian Roman
state, with a powerful political theology that predicted the
emperor would eventually establish Orthodox Christianitys world
dominion.
John Haldon is Professor of Byzantine History and Hellenic
Studies at Princeton University.

Renowned for its madrassas and


archives of rare Arabic manuscripts, Timbuktu is famous as a
center of Muslim learning from
Islams Golden Age. Yet Timbuktu
was one among many scholarly
centers to exist in precolonial
West Africa. Beyond Timbuktu
charts the rise of Muslim learning
in West Africa from the beginning of Islam to the present day,
examining the shifting contexts
that have influenced the production and dissemination of Islamic
knowledge over the course of
centuries.
Ousmane Kane corrects lingering misconceptions that Africas
Muslim heritage represents a minor thread in Islams larger tapestry.
West African Muslims have never been isolated. The Sahara was
not an insuperable barrier but a bridge that allowed the AraboBerbers of the North to sustain relations with West African Muslims
through trade, diplomacy, and intellectual and spiritual exchange.
The tradition of Islamic learning in West Africa has grown in
tandem with the spread of Arabic literacy, making Arabic the most
widely spoken language in Africa today. In the postcolonial period,
transformations in West African education, together with the rise
of media technologies and the public roles of African Muslim
intellectuals, continue to spread knowledge of Islam throughout
the continent.

Battle for Bed-Stuy

The Long War on Poverty in New York City


Michael Woodsworth
A half-century after the launch of
the War on Poverty, its complex
origins remain obscure. Battle for
Bed-Stuy reinterprets President
Lyndon Johnsons much-debated
crusade from the perspective of
its foot soldiers in New York City,
showing how 1960s antipoverty
programs were rooted in a rich
tradition of grassroots activism
and policy experiments.
Brooklyns Bedford-Stuyvesant
neighborhood, with 400,000
mostly black, mostly poor
residents, was often labeled
Americas largest ghetto. But
in its elegant brownstones lived a coterie of home-owning
professionals intent on stemming disorder and unifying the
community. In the 1950s and 1960s, Bed-Stuys black middle class
worked with city officials and, later, Senator Robert Kennedy to
tackle youth crime, physical decay, and capital flight. Their policy
dialogue inspired several War on Poverty programs, including
Americas first Community Development Corporation.
Such initiatives brought hope amid dark days, reinforced the social
safety net, and democratized urban politics. They also empowered
women like Elsie Richardson and Shirley Chisholm, community
organizers who graduated into leadership positions. Yet, as Michael
Woodsworth reveals, these new forms of black political power,
though exercised in the name of poor people, often benefited
the middle class. Bed-Stuy today, shaped by gentrification and
displacement, reflects the paradoxes of midcentury reform.

Our Divine Double


Charles M. Stang
What if you were to discover that
you were not entirely you, but
rather one half of a wholethat
you had, in other words, a divine
double? In the second and third
centuries CE, this idea gripped
the imagination of the Eastern
Mediterranean, providing a distinctive understanding of the
self that has survived in various
forms throughout the centuries,
down to the present. Our Divine
Double traces the rise of this
ancient idea that each person
has a divine counterpart, twin,
or alter-ego, and the eventual
eclipse of this idea with the rise of Christian conciliar orthodoxy.
Charles Stang marshals an array of ancient sources from early
Christianity, Manichaeism, and Neoplatonism. Each of these
traditions offers an understanding of the self as an irreducible unityin-duality. To encounter ones divine double is to embark on a path
of deification that closes the gap between image and archetype,
human and divine. While the figure of the divine double receded
from the history of Christianity with the rise of conciliar orthodoxy,
it survives in two important discourses from late antiquity: theodicy,
or the problem of evil; and Christology, the exploration of how the
Incarnate Christ is both human and divine.

Africans in the Old South

Everyday Renaissances

Randy J. Sparks

Sarah Gwyneth Ross

Mapping Exceptional Lives across the Atlantic World

The Atlantic slave trade was the


largest forced migration in history, yet most stories from this
period are lost, making those
that can be reconstructed critical
to understanding the trade in all
its breadth and variety. Randy J.
Sparks examines the experiences
of West Africans who lived in the
American South between 1740
and 1860. Their stories highlight
the diversity of struggles that
confronted every African who
arrived on American shores.
The subjects of Africans in the Old
South include the mixed-race daughter of an African slave-trading
family who invested in South Carolina rice plantations, passed as
white, and joined the planter elite; a man kidnapped as a child and
sold into slavery in Georgia, who later won his freedom and joined
the abolition movement; and a group of Africans who were picked
up by a British ship in the Caribbean, escaped in Mobile, and were
recaptured and eventually returned to their homeland.
These exceptional lives challenge long-held assumptions about
how the slave trade operated and who was involved. The African
Atlantic was a complex world of constant movement, intricate
hierarchies, and shifting identities. Not all Africans who crossed the
Atlantic were enslaved, nor was the voyage always one-way.

The Quest for Cultural Legitimacy in Venice

The world of wealth and patronage that we associate with sixteenthand early seventeenth-century Italy can make the Renaissance
seem the exclusive domain of artists and aristocrats. Revealing a
Renaissance beyond Michelangelo and the Medici, Sarah Gwyneth
Ross recovers the experiences of everyday men and women who
were inspired to pursue literature and learning.
Ross draws on a trove of unpublished sources to reconstruct the
lives of over one hundred artisans, merchants, and others on the
middle rung of Venetian society who embraced the virtues of a
humanistic education and passed their books and hard-earned
wisdom on to their families and heirs. Physicians were often the
most avidand the most anxiousprofessionals seeking cultural
legitimacy. Ross examines the lives of three doctors: Nicol Massa
(14851569), Francesco Longo (15061576), and Alberto Rini (d.
1599). Though they had received university training, these men
were not patricians but members of a social group that still yearned
for credibility. Unlike priests or lawyers, physicians had not yet rid
themselves of the taint of artisanal labor, and they were thus indicative of a middle class that sought to earn the respect of their betters, advance their families, and secure honorable remembrance
after death.

Twelve Infallible Men

The Imams and the Making of Shiism


Matthew Pierce
A millennium ago, Baghdad was
the capital of one of historys
greatest civilizations. A new
Islamic era was under way. Yet
despite their great achievements,
many Muslims felt society had
gone astray. Shia Muslims challenged the dominant narrative
of Islamic success with stories of
loss. Faithful Muslims have long
debated whether Sunni caliphs
or Shia imams were the true
heirs of the Prophet Muhammad.
More influential has been the way
Muslim communities remembered those disputes through
stories that influenced how to think and feel about them, Matthew
Pierce argues.
Twelve Infallible Men explores the role of narratives of the imams
in the development of a distinct Shia identity. During the tenth
century, at a critical juncture in Islamic history, Shia scholars
assembled accounts of the imams lives, portraying them as strong,
learned, and pious miracle workers who were nonetheless betrayed
by their enemies. These accounts inspired and entertained, but
more importantly they offered a meaningful narrative of history for
Muslims who revered the imams. The biographies invoked shared
memories and shaped communal responses and ritual practices of
mourning. They became a focal point of cultural memory, inspiring
Shia religious imagination for centuries to come.

African Pentecostals in
Catholic Europe

The Politics of Presence in the Twenty-First Century


Annalisa Butticci
Italy has become a significant destination for migrants from Nigeria
and Ghana. Along with suitcases
and dreams, these Africans bring
their own form of Christianity
Pentecostalism. At the heart of
Annalisa Butticcis beautifully
sculpted ethnography is a paradox. Pentecostalism, one of the
most Protestant of Christian faiths,
is driven by the same concern as
Catholicism: real presence.
In Italy, Pentecostals face harsh
anti-immigrant sentiment and
limited access to economic and
social resources. At times, they find safe spaces to worship in
Catholic churches, where a fascinating encounter unfolds. When
Pentecostals watch Catholics engage with sacramental objects
relics, statues, works of artthey recognize the signs of what they
consider the idolatrous religions of their ancestors. Catholics, in
turn, view Pentecostal practices as a mix of African religions and
Christian traditions. Yet despite their apparently irreconcilable
differences and conflicts, they both share a deeply sensuous
and material way to make the divine visible and tangible. African
Pentecostals in Catholic Europe offers an intimate glimpse at what
happens when the worlds two fastest-growing Christian faiths
come into contact, share worship space, and use analogous
sacramental objects and images. And it explains how their
seemingly antithetical practices and beliefs undergird a profound
commonality.
Annalisa Butticci is Marie Curie Fellow at Harvard Divinity School
and Utrecht University.

Legible Religion

Free Speech and Unfree News

Duncan MacRae

Sam Lebovic

Books, Gods, and Rituals in Roman Culture

Scholars have long emphasized


the importance of scripture in
religion, tacitly separating a few
privileged religions of the Book
from faiths lacking sacred texts,
including ancient Roman religion.
Looking beyond this distinction, Duncan MacRae delves into
Roman religious culture to grapple with a central question: what
was the significance of books in a
religion without scripture?
In the last two centuries BCE,
Varro and other Roman authors
wrote treatises on the nature of
the Roman gods and the rituals devoted to them. Although these
books were not sacred texts, they made Roman religion legible
in ways analogous to scripture-based faiths such as Judaism and
Christianity. Rather than reflect the astonishingly varied polytheistic
practices of the regions under Roman sway, the contents of the
books comprise Romes civil theologynot a description of an
official state religion but one limited to the civic role of religion
in Roman life. Tracing the subsequent influence of these religious
texts from the late first century BCE to early fifth century CE, MacRae
shows how the establishment of the Roman imperial monarchy
and the rise of the Christian Church shaped their reception and
interpretation.

The Paradox of Press Freedom in America

Does America have a free press?


Many who answer yes appeal to
First Amendment protections
against government censorship.
But in this comprehensive history of press freedom as it has
existed in theory, law, and practice, Sam Lebovic shows that, on
its own, the right of free speech
has been insufficient to produce
a free press.
Exploring persistent worries
about the quality and diversity
of news in the modern American
press, Lebovic recovers a midcentury vision of unfettered public access to information and
a right to the news. Yet as the meaning of press freedom was
contested in various arenasSupreme Court cases on censorship,
efforts to regulate the newspaper industry, state secrecy and
freedom of information law, unionization of journalists, the rise of
the New JournalismAmericans defined freedom of the press as
nothing more than the right to publish without censorship. The idea
of a right to all the news was forgotten.
Free Speech and Unfree News compels us to reexamine what
freedom of the press means in a democratic societyand helps us
make better sense of the crises that beset the press amid corporate
consolidation in media industries, a secretive national security
state, and the daily newspapers decline.

Belonging to the Nation

Inclusion and Exclusion in the Polish-German


Borderlands, 19391951
John J. Kulczycki
When the Nazis annexed western
Poland in 1939, they set about
identifying Polish citizens of German origin and granting them
the privileged legal status of
ethnic Germans of the Reich. Following Germanys defeat in World
War II, Soviet-dominated Poland
incorporated eastern Germany
and proceeded to do just the
opposite: searching out Germans
of Polish origin and offering them
Polish citizenship. Belonging to
the Nation examines these efforts
to nationalize inhabitants of the
contested Polish-German borderlands, underscoring the processes of inclusion and exclusion that
mold national communities.
Histories of national minorities in the twentieth century often
concentrate on ethnic cleansing. John Kulczycki approaches his
topic from a different angle, focusing on how governments decide
which minorities to include, not expel. The policies Germany and
Poland pursued from 1939 to 1951 bear striking similarities. Both
Nazis and Communist Poles regarded national identity as biologically
determinedand both found this principle difficult to enforce.
Although the goal was to create an ethnically homogeneous nation,
Germany and Poland allowed pockets of minorities to remain,
usually to exploit their labor. Kulczycki illustrates the complexity
of the process behind national self-determination, the obstacles it
confronts in practice, and the resulting injustices.
John J. Kulczycki is Professor Emeritus in the Department of
History at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Papers of John Adams, Volume 18


December 1785January 1787
John Adams
Edited by Gregg L. Lint, Sara Martin, C. James Taylor,
Sara Georgini, Hobson Woodward, Sara B. Sikes,
Amanda M. Norton
Volume 18 is the final volume
of The Papers of John Adams
devoted to Adams diplomatic
career. It chronicles fourteen
months of his tenure as minister
to Great Britain and his joint commission, with Thomas Jefferson,
to negotiate treaties with Europe
and North Africa. With respect to
Britain, Adams found it impossible to do any Thing Satisfactory,
with this Nation, and the volume
ends with his decision to resign
his posts.
Other aspects of Adams life were
not disappointing. Through agent Thomas Barclay, he and Jefferson
concluded a treaty with Morocco. Barclays letters are the earliest
and most evocative American accounts of that region. Adams
witnessed the marriage of his daughter, Abigail 2d, to William
Stephens Smith, promoted the ordination of American Episcopal
bishops, and toured the English countryside. Most significant
perhaps was the publication of the first volume of Adams Defence
of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America.
This work is often attributed to concern over Shays Rebellion, of
which Adams knew little. In fact, it was Adams 1786 visit to the
Netherlands that provoked his work. Dutch Patriot friends, involved
in their own revolution, expressed interest in seeing upon paper
his remarks respecting Government.

From Steel to Slots

Casino Capitalism in the Postindustrial City


Chloe E. Taft
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, was once synonymous with steel. But after the factories closed,
the city bet its future on a new industry: casino gambling. On the site of the former
Bethlehem Steel plant, thousands of flashing slot machines and digital bells replaced the
fires in the blast furnaces and the shift change whistles of the industrial workplace. From
Steel to Slots tells the story of a city struggling to make sense of the ways in which local
jobs, landscapes, and identities are transformed by global capitalism.
Postindustrial redevelopment often makes a clean break with a citys rusted past. In
Bethlehem, where the new casino is industrial-themed, the citys heritage continues to
dominate the built environment and infuse everyday experiences. Through the voices
of steelworkers, casino dealers, preservationists, immigrants, and executives, Chloe Taft
examines the ongoing legacies of corporate presence and urban development in a small
cityand their uneven effects.
Today, multinational casino corporations increasingly act as urban planners, promising
jobs and new tax revenues to ailing communities. Yet in an industry premised on risk and
capital liquidity, short-term gains do not necessarily mean long-term commitments to
local needs. While residents often have few cards to play in the face of global capital and
private development, Taft argues that the shape economic progress takes is not inevitable,
nor must it always look forward. Memories of corporations accountability to communities
persist, and citizens see alternatives for more equitable futures in the layered landscapes
all around them.
Chloe E. Taft is a Mellon Postdoctoral Associate in the Integrated Humanities in the
American Studies Program at Yale University.

Choice, Preferences, and


Procedures

A Rational Choice Theoretic Approach


Kotaro Suzumura

Authors in Court

Scenes from the Theater of Copyright


Mark Rose

Well-written, erudite, informative, and engaging throughout.


Kotaro Suzumura is one of the
worlds foremost thinkers in
social choice theory and welfare
economics. Bringing together
essays that have become classics in the field, Choice, Preferences, and Procedures examines
foundational issues of normative
economics and collective decision making.

Lewis Hyde, Kenyon College


This book charts the 300-yearlong dance between authorship
and copyright that has shaped
each institutions response to
changing social norms of identity,
privacy, and celebrity. Authors
self-presentations in court are
often inflected by prevailing concepts of propriety and respectability. And judges, for their
part, have not been immune to
the reputation and standing of
the authors who have appeared
before them in legal dramas.

Social choice theory critically


assesses and rationally designs
economic
mechanisms
for
improving human well-being.
Suzumuras contribution over
the past forty years has entailed fusion of abstract ideas with an
understanding of real-world economies in a coherent analysis. In
groundbreaking essays he explores the nature of individual and
social choice and the idea of freedom of choice, different forms of
rationality of choice, and concepts of individual rights, equity, and
fairness. Suzumura elucidates an innovative approach for interpersonal comparisons in the vein of Adam Smiths notion of sympathy and expounds the effect of accommodating nonconsequential
features, such as the opportunity to choose and the procedure for
decision making, along with consequential features. He also shows
how restricting competition may improve social welfare. This is not
to recommend government regulation rather than market competition but to emphasize the importance of procedural features in a
competitive context. Concluding essays focus on the ideas of Vilfredo Pareto, Arthur Pigou, John Hicks, and Paul Samuelson.

Some authors strut their roles on


the public stage. For example, Napoleon Saronythe nineteenthcentury photographer whose case established that photographs
might be protected as works of artwas fond of marching along
Broadway dressed in a red fez and high-top campaign boots. Others,
such as the reclusive J. D. Salinger, enacted their dramas precisely
by shrinking from attention. Mark Roses case studies include
the flamboyant writer Daniel Defoe; the self-consciously genteel
poet Alexander Pope; the abolitionist Harriet Beecher Stowe; the
once-celebrated dramatist Anne Nichols; and the provocative
contemporary artist Jeff Koons. These examples suggest not only
how social forms such as gender and gentility have influenced the
self-presentation of authors in public and in court but also how
the personal styles and histories of authors have influenced the
development of legal doctrine.

Kotaro Suzumura is Professor Emeritus and Honorary Fellow,


Waseda University, and Member of the Japan Academy.

Mark Rose is Professor of English at the University of California,


Santa Barbara, and author of Authors and Owners (Harvard).

The Digital Difference

The Naked Blogger of Cairo

Media Technology and the Theory of


Communication Effects

Creative Insurgency in the Arab World


Marwan M. Kraidy

W. Russell Neuman
This is an essential book.
Manuel Castells, University of Southern California
The Digital Difference examines how
the transition from the industrial-era
media of one-way publishing and
broadcasting to the two-way digital era of online search and social
media has affected the dynamics of
public life.
In the digital age, fundamental
beliefs about privacy and identity
are subject to change, as is the
formal legal basis of freedom of
expression. Will it be possible
to maintain a vibrant and open
marketplace of ideas? In W. Russell
Neumans analysis, the marketplace
metaphor does not signal that money buys influence, but rather just
the oppositethat the digital commons must be open to all ideas
so that the most powerful ideas win public attention on their merits
rather than on the taken-for-granted authority of their authorship.
Technologies by their nature do not cause freedom nor do they
limit it. Technologies are embedded in a complex set of cultural
expectations and institutions as well as regulatory and legal
principles. Fear of the communication effects of bad ideas is the
enemy of free speech. Neuman traces the digital difference from
the era of propaganda studies and concerns about Big Brother to
issues of information overload and the core policy debate about
Internet network neutrality.
W. Russell Neuman is Professor of Media Technology at New York
University.

Uprisings spread like wildfire


across the Arab world from
2010 to 2012, fueled by a desire
for popular sovereignty. In Tunisia, Egypt, and Syria, protesters flooded the streets and the
media, voicing dissent through
slogans, graffiti, puppetry, videos, and satire that called for the
overthrow of dictatorial regimes.
Investigating what drives people
to risk everything to express
themselves in rebellious art, The
Naked Blogger of Cairo uncovers
the creative insurgency at the
heart of the Arab uprisings. While commentators have stressed the
role of texting and Twitter, Marwan M. Kraidy shows that the essential
medium of expression was the human body. Brutal governments
that coerced citizens through torture and rape found themselves
confronted with the bodies of protesters, who challenged authority
in brazen acts of self-immolation, nude activism, and hunger strikes.
The bodies of dictators became a focus of ridicule. Syrias Bashar
al-Assad was rendered as a pathetic finger puppet, while Egypts
Hosni Mubarak became a regurgitating cow. Technology publicizes
defiance, but the body remains the nexus of physical struggle and
digital communication, destabilizing distinctions between the real
world and virtual reality, spurring revolutionary debates about the
role of art, and anchoring Islamic States attempted hijacking of
creative insurgency.

Shaper Nations

Strategies for a Changing World


William I. Hitchcock Melvyn P. Leffler
Jeffrey W. Legro
EDITED BY

Shaper Nations provides illuminating perspectives on the


national strategies of eight
emerging and established countries that are shaping global
politics in the twenty-first century. The volumes authors offer
a unique viewpoint: they live and
work primarily in the country
about which they write, bringing an insiders feel for national
debates and politics.

John Goldberg, Harvard University


A waiter spills coffee on a customer. A person walks on another
persons land. A frustrated neighbor bangs on the wall. A reputation is ruined by a mistaken news
report. Although the details vary,
the law recognizes all of these
as torts, different ways in which
one person wrongs another. Tort
law can seem puzzling: sometimes people are made to pay
damages when they are barely
at fault, while at other times serious losses go uncompensated. In
this pioneering book, Arthur Ripstein brings coherence and unity
to the baffling diversity of tort law in an original theory that is philosophically grounded and analytically powerful.
Ripstein shows that all torts violate the basic moral idea that each
person is in charge of his or her own person and property, and never
in charge of anothers person or property. Some wrongs involve one
person using anothers body or property; others involve damaging
them. Tort remedies aim to provide a substitute for the rights that
have been violated. As Private Wrongs makes clear, tort law not only
protects our bodies and property but constitutes our entitlement
to use them as we see fit, consistent with the entitlement of others
to do the same.

Conventional wisdom suggests


that shaper states have clear
central authority, coherently
connect means to ends, and focus on their geopolitical
environment. These essays suggest a different conclusion. In
Brazil, China, Germany, India, Israel, Russia, and Turkey, strategy is
dominated by non-state threats, domestic politics, the distorting
effect of national identity, economic development concerns, and
the sheer difficulty, in the face of powerful internal and external
constraints, of pursuing an effective national strategy.
The shapers represent a new trend in the international arena with
important consequences. Among them is a more uncertain world
in which countries concentrate on their own development rather
than on shared problems that might divert precious resources, and
attend more to regional than to global order.

Exemptions

Constitutional Morality and the


Rise of Quasi-Law

Necessary, Justified, or Misguided?


Kent Greenawalt

Bruce P. Frohnen George W. Carey

The qualities that make Greenawalt so universally and strongly


admired are on full display herethoughtfulness, mastery of detail,
deep empathy for competing positions, and clear writing.
Nelson Tebbe, Brooklyn Law School
Should laws apply equally to
everyone, or should some individuals and organizations be granted
exemptions because of conflicting religious or moral convictions? Recently this question has
become intensely controversial
in America. The Supreme Courts
ruling on same-sex marriage, in
particular, has provoked barbed
debates about legal exemptions.
At their core lies the issue of
whether basic values of equality and nondiscrimination are at
odds with the right to live according to ones religious beliefs.
Kent Greenawalt draws on his extensive expertise to place samesex marriage and other controversies within a broader context.
Avoiding oversimplification and reflecting a balanced consideration of competing claims and harms, he offers a useful overview
of various types of exemptions and the factors that we should take
into account when determining the justice of a particular exemption. Through a close study of several cases, from doctors who will
not perform abortions to institutions that do not pay taxes, Greenawalt demonstrates how to weigh competing values without losing
sight of practical considerations like the difficulty of implementing
a specific law. Exemptions is a thoughtful guide to reaching just and
desirable legal conclusions by respecting those who wish to live
according to different fundamental values.

Law6 x 9 

Americans are ruled by an


unwritten constitution consisting of executive orders, signing
statements, and other forms of
quasi-law that lack the characteristics essential for the legal
system to function properly.
Consequently, the Constitution
no longer means what it says
to the people it is supposed to
govern, and the government
no longer acts according to the
rule of law. These developments
can be traced back to a change
in constitutional morality, Bruce
Frohnen and George Carey argue
in this challenging book.
The principle of separation of powers among co-equal branches of
government formed the cornerstone of Americas original constitutional morality. But toward the end of the nineteenth century, Progressives began to attack this bedrock principle as impeding government from doing the peoples business. The regime of mixed
powers, delegation, and expansive legal interpretation they instituted rejected the ideals of limited government in favor of a model
rooted in French revolutionary claims. Progressives replaced a Constitution designed to mediate among societys different geographic
and socioeconomic groups with a body of quasi-laws commanding the democratic reformation of society. This vision has become
ingrained in American legal and political cultureat the cost of the
constitutional safeguards that preserve the rule of law.

Education and the


Commercial Mindset
Samuel E. Abrams

Imagined Futures

Fictional Expectations and Capitalist Dynamics


Jens Beckert

Americas commitment to public


schooling once seemed unshakable. But today the movement to
privatize K12 education is robust.
Samuel Abrams examines the
rise of market forces in public
education and reveals how a
commercial mindset has taken
over.
For decades, Milton Friedman
and his disciples contended
that private markets could
deliver better schooling than
governments. In the 1990s, this
belief was put to the test by
Edison Schools and other for-profit educational management
organizations (EMOs). Edison grew rapidly, running schools in
cities across the country. Yet disappointing academic and financial
outcomes soon pushed the company and its competitors to
the margins. The focus of EMOs on results nevertheless found
expression in federal policy and defined the ethos of nonprofit
charter management organizations (CMOs) like KIPP that surfaced
in their wake. But CMOs dependence on philanthropists, tireless
teachers, and students capable of abiding by rigid expectations
limits their reach. Abrams argues that while the commercial
mindset sidesteps fundamental challenges, public schools should
adopt lessons from the business world. Citing foreign practices, he
recommends raising teacher salaries to attract and retain talent,
conferring educators more autonomy to build ownership, and
employing sampling techniques rather than universal assessments
to gauge student progress.

In a capitalist system, consumers, investors, and corporations


orient their activities toward a
future that contains opportunities and risks. How actors assess
uncertainty is a problem that
economists have tried to solve
through general equilibrium
and rational expectations theory. Powerful as these tools are,
they underestimate the futures
unknowability by assuming that
markets correctly forecast what
is to come.
Jens Beckert adds a new chapter
to the theory of capitalism
by demonstrating how fictional expectations drive modern
economiesor throw them into crisis when imagined futures
fail to materialize. Collectively held images of how the future will
unfold free actors from paralyzing doubt, enabling them to commit
resources even if those expectations prove inaccurate. Beckert
distinguishes fictional expectations from performativity theory,
which holds that predictions become self-fulfilling prophecies.
Economic forecasts are important not because they produce the
futures they envision but because they create the expectations that
generate economic activity in the first place: the expectation that
money will retain its purchasing power, that capital investments
will make a profit, that consumer purchases will satisfy our
dreams. As Imagined Futures shows, those who ignore the role
of real uncertainty and fictional expectations in market dynamics
misunderstand the nature of capitalism.

A New Deal for Old Age


Toward a Progressive Retirement
Anne L. Alstott

Legislating Instability

Adam Smith, Free Banking, and the


Financial Crisis of 1772
Tyler Beck Goodspeed

Rising inequality has undermined one of Americas proudest


achievements: Social Security.
Unprecedented changes in longevity, marriage, and the workplace have made the experience
of old age increasingly unequal.
Educated Americans typically do
not face serious impediments to
employment or health until their
mid-70s or even later. By contrast, many uneducated earners
confront obstacles of early disability, limited job opportunities,
and unemployment before they
reach 65.
Americas system for managing retirement is out of step with these
realities. Social Security reflects a time at mid-century when most
workers were men, held steady jobs until 65, and remained married
for life. Social Security promised a dignified old age for rich and
poor alike, but today that egalitarian promise is failing. Anne L.
Alstott makes the case for a progressive program that would permit
all Americans to retire between 62 and 76 but would provide
generous early retirement benefits for workers with low wages or
physically demanding jobs. She also proposes a more equitable
spousal benefit and a new phased-retirement option to permit
workers to transition out of the workforce gradually. A New Deal
for Old Age offers a pragmatic and principled agenda for renewing
Americas most successful and popular social welfare program.

From 1716 to 1845, Scotlands


banks were among the most
dynamic and resilient in Europe,
effectively absorbing a series of
economic shocks that rocked
financial markets in London and
on the continent. Legislating
Instability explains the seeming
paradox that the Scottish banking system achieved this success
without the government controls
usually considered necessary for
economic stability.
Scottish banks operated in a regulatory vacuum: no lender of last
resort, no monopoly on currency, no capital reserve requirements,
and no limits on bank size. These conditions produced a robust,
competitive banking system. Despite large speculative capital flows,
a fixed exchange rate, and substantial external debt, Scotland navigated two financial crises during the Seven Years War. The exception was a severe crisis in 1772, seven years after the imposition
of the first regulations on bankingthe result of lobbying by large
banks to weed out competition. While these restrictions did not
cause the crisis, Tyler Beck Goodspeed argues, they undermined
the flexibility and resilience of Scottish finance, thereby elevating
the risk that another economic shock might threaten financial stability more broadly. The crisis of 1772, far from revealing the shortcomings of unregulated banking, as Adam Smith claimed, exposed
the risks of ill-conceived regulation.
Tyler Beck Goodspeed is a Junior Fellow in Economics at the
University of Oxford.

Early Greek Philosophy

Volume I: Beginnings and Early Ionian Thinkers


Volume II: Western Greek Thinkers
Volume III: Later Ionian and Athenian Thinkers
Volume IV: Sophists
EDITED AND TRANSLATED BY

Andr Laks Glenn W. Most

The fragments and testimonia of the early Greek philosophers (often known as the preSocratics) have always been not only a fundamental source for understanding archaic
Greek culture and ancient philosophy but also a perennially fresh resource that has
stimulated Western thought until the present day. This new systematic conception and
presentation of the evidence differs in three ways from Hermann Dielss groundbreaking
late-nineteenth-century work as well as from later editions: it renders explicit the materials thematic organization; it includes a selection from such related bodies of evidence as
archaic poetry, classical drama, and the Hippocratic corpus; and it presents an overview of
the reception of these thinkers until the end of antiquity.
Volume I presents an introduction, preliminary chapters on ancient doxography, the
cosmological and moral background, and the Ionian thinkers from Pherecydes to
Heraclitus. Volume II presents western Greek thinkers from the Pythagoreans to Hippo.
Volume III presents later philosophical systems and their aftermath in the fifth and early
fourth centuries, from Anaxagoras through the Derveni papyrus. Volume IV presents fifthcentury reflections on language, rhetoric, ethics, and politics (the so-called sophists and
Socrates) and concludes with an appendix on philosophy and philosophers in tragedy and
comedy, concordances, and indexes.

Civil War

Confessions

Caesar

Volume II: Books 913

Edited and translated by Cynthia Damon

Augustine

Caesar (C. Iulius, 10244 BC), statesman and soldier, defied the
dictator Sulla; served in the Mithridatic wars and in Spain; entered
Roman politics as a democrat against the senatorial government;
was the real leader of the coalition with Pompey and Crassus; conquered all Gaul for Rome; attacked
Britain twice; was forced into civil
war; became master of the Roman
world; and achieved wide-reaching
reforms until his murder. We have
his books of commentarii (notes):
eight on his wars in Gaul from
5852 BC, including the two expeditions to Britain in 5554, and three
on the civil war of 4948. They are
records of his own campaigns (with
occasional digressions) in vigorous,
direct, clear, unemotional style and
in the third person, the account of
the civil war being somewhat more
impassioned.
This edition of the Civil War replaces the earlier Loeb Classical
Library edition by A. G. Peskett (1914) with updated text, translation,
introduction, and bibliography.
In the Loeb Classical Library edition of Caesar, Volume I is his Gallic
War; Volume III consists of Alexandrian War, African War, and Spanish War, commonly ascribed to Caesar by our manuscripts but of
uncertain authorship.

Edited and translated by Carolyn J.-B. Hammond


Aurelius Augustine (AD 354430), one of the most important figures in western Christianity and philosophy, was the son of a pagan,
Patricius of Tagaste, and his Christian wife, Monnica. While studying to become a rhetorician, he
plunged into a turmoil of philosophical and psychological doubts,
leading him to Manichaeism. In
383 he moved to Rome and then
Milan to teach rhetoric. Despite
exploring classical philosophical
systems, especially skepticism and
neoplatonism, his studies of Pauls
letters with his friend Alypius, and
the preaching of Bishop Ambrose,
led in 386 to his momentous conversion from mixed beliefs to Christianity. He soon returned to Tagaste
and founded a religious community,
and in 395 or 396 became Bishop
of Hippo.
Confessions, composed ca. 397, is a spiritual autobiography of
Augustines early life, family, personal and intellectual associations,
and explorations of alternative religious and theological viewpoints
as he moved toward his conversion. Cast as a prayer addressed to
God, though always conscious of its readers, Confessions offers a
gripping personal story and a philosophical exploration destined
to have broad and lasting impact, delivered with Augustines
characteristic brilliance as a stylist.
This edition replaces the earlier Loeb Classical Library edition of
Confessions by William Watts.

Holy Men of Mount Athos


EDITED BY

Richard P. H. Greenfield Alice-Mary Talbot


Often simply called the Holy Mountain, Mount Athos was the most famous center of Byzantine monasticism and remains the spiritual heart of the Orthodox Church today. This
volume presents the Lives of Euthymios the Younger, Athanasios of Athos, Maximos the
Hutburner, Niphon of Athos, and Philotheos. These five holy men lived on Mount Athos
at different times from its early years as a monastic locale in the ninth century to the last
decades of the Byzantine period in the early fifteenth century. All five were celebrated for
asceticism, clairvoyance, and, in most cases, the ability to perform miracles; Euthymios
and Athanasios were also famed as founders of monasteries.
Holy Men of Mount Athos illuminates both the history and the varieties of monastic practice
on Athos, individually by hermits as well as communally in large monasteries. The Lives also
demonstrate the diversity of hagiographic composition and provide important glimpses of
Byzantine social and political history.
All the Lives in this volume are presented for the first time in English translation, together
with authoritative editions of their Greek texts.

On Platos Timaeus

Old English Psalms

Calcidius

EDITED AND TRANSLATED BY

EDITED AND TRANSLATED BY

John Magee

Until the Renaissance, the work of Calcidius offered the medieval


West almost the only direct access to Platos corpus not dispersed
in fragments. In the fourth century CE, Calcidius translated into
Latin an important section of
Platos Timaeus, complemented
by extensive commentary and
organized into coordinated parts.
The first part is broadly devoted
to the architecture of the world,
to its intelligible structure. The
second delves into the nature of
the living creatures that inhabit it.
This basic division subsequently
informed the sense of macrocosm and microcosmof the
world and our place in itwhich
is prevalent in western European
thought in the Middle Ages. At the same time, this medieval volume altered perspectives on Plato by drawing on other philosophical traditions, particularly the Stoic and Peripatetic, while including
Judeo-Christian cosmology and anthropology. The present edition
provides the first English translation of Calcidiuss work.

The Latin psalms figured prominently in the lives of the AngloSaxons, whether sung in the Divine Office by clerics, studied as a
textbook for language learning by students, or recited in private
devotion by lay people. They were also translated into Old English,
first in prose and later in verse.
Sometime in the middle of the
eleventh century, the prose and
verse translations were brought
together and organized in a complementary sequence in a manuscript now known as the Paris
Psalter. The prose version, traditionally attributed to King Alfred
(d. 899), combines literal translation with interpretative clarification. In contrast, the anonymous
Old English verse translation
composed during the tenth century approaches the psalms in
a spirit of prayer and devotion.
Despite their differences, both reflect earnest attempts to capture
the literal meaning of the psalms.
The complete text of all 150 prose and verse psalms is available
here in contemporary English for the first time. With this translation
readers encounter the beginnings and the continuation of a long
tradition of psalm renderings in English.

Francesco Petrarca (13041374),


one of the greatest of Italian
poets, was also the leading
spirit in the Renaissance movement to revive literary Latin, the
language of the Roman Empire,
and Greco-Roman culture in general. My Secret Book (Secretum)
records the private conflict of
my thoughts, in the form of a
dialogue between Franciscus
and Augustinus in the presence
of a beautiful woman, Truth personified. The discussion reveals
remarkable self-awareness as
Petrarca probes and evaluates
the springs of his own morally dubious addictions to Fame and
Love.

Giovanni Marrasio (d. 1452), a


humanist poet from Noto in Sicily, spent the major part of his
poetic career in Siena and Ferrara before returning to Palermo
in the role of a medical doctor
serving the University of Palermo.
In Siena, Naples, and Palermo
he hovered on the edge of the
courts of the Este and of Alfonso
the Magnanimous of Aragon
without ever winning the title of
court poet he coveted.
Marrasio was esteemed in the
Renaissance as the first to revive
the ancient Latin elegy, and his
Angelinetum, or Angelinas Garden, as well as his later poems
(Carmina Varia) explore that genre in all its variety, from love poetry,
to a description of a court masque, to political panegyric, to poetic
exchanges with famous humanists of the day such as Leonardo
Bruni, Maffeo Vegio, Antonio Panormita, and Enea Silvio Piccolomini. This volume contains the first translation of Marrasios works
into any modern language.

Biondo Flavio

English translation by Frances Muecke


Latin text edited by Maria Agata Pincelli

Edited and translated by Jeffrey A. White

Volume 1, Books III

Biondo Flavio (13921463), humanist and historian, was a pioneering figure in the Renaissance discovery of antiquity; famously, he
was the author who popularized the term Middle Age to describe
the period between the fall of the
Roman Empire and the revival of
antiquity in his own time. While
serving a number of Renaissance popes, he inaugurated
an extraordinary program of
research into the history, cultural
life, and physical remains of the
ancient world.
The capstone of this research
program, Rome in Triumph (1459),
has been said to bear comparison with the Encyclopdie of
Diderot as the embodiment of
the ideals of an age, seeking as
it does to answer the overarching question of humanists from Petrarch to Machiavelli: what made
Rome great? To answer the question Biondo undertakes a comprehensive reconstruction of Romes religion, government, military
organization, customs and institutions over its thousand-year history. This volume contains the first edition of the Latin text since
1559 and the first translation into any modern language.

Italy Illuminated (1453), of which

Letters of a Dead Man


Prince Hermann von Pckler-Muskau
Edited and translated by Linda B. Parshall
In 1826, the prince of Pckler-Muskau embarked on a tour of England, Wales,
and Ireland. Although captivated by all things British, his initial objective
was to find a wealthy bride. He and his wife Lucie, having expended every
resource on a plan to transform their estate into a vast landscape park,
agreed to an amicable divorce, freeing him to forge an advantageous
alliance that could rescue their project. For over two years, Pcklers letters
home conveyed a vivid, often quirky, and highly entertaining account of his
travels. From the metropolis of London, he toured the mines and factories of
the Industrial Revolution and visited the grand estates and spectacular art
collections maintained by its beneficiaries. He encountered the scourge of
rural and urban poverty and found common cause with the oppressed Irish.
With his gift for description, Pckler evokes the spectacular landscapes of
Wales, the perils of transportation, and the gentle respite of manor houses
and country inns. Part memoir, part travelogue and political commentary, part
epistolary novel, Pcklers rhetorical flare and acute observations provoked
the German poet Heinrich Heine to characterize him as the most fashionable of eccentric
menDiogenes on horseback.

Thirty-Six Views

Holes in the Head

Kangxi Emperor

John W. Verano

Translations by Richard E. Strassberg, with introductions by


Richard E. Strassberg and Stephen H. Whiteman

Trepanation is the oldest surgical


procedure known from antiquity,
extending back more than five
thousand years in Europe and
to at least the fifth century BC in
the New World. Anthropologists
and medical historians have been
investigating ancient trepanation
since the mid-nineteenth century,
but questions remain about its origins, evolution, and the possible
motivations for conducting such
a dangerous surgical procedure.
Peru is particularly important to
these questions, as it boasts more trepanned skulls than the rest
of the world combined. This volume presents the results of a longterm research project that examined more than 800 trepanned
skulls from recent archaeological excavations and from museum
collections in Peru, the United States, and Europe. It examines
trepanation in ancient Peru from a broad anthropological and historic perspective, focusing on the archaeological context of osteological collections and highlighting the history of discoveries. It
explores the origins and spread of the practice throughout the Central Andes, with a focus on trepanation techniques, success rates,
and motivations for trepanning. It examines the apparent disappearance of trepanation in the Andes following Spanish conquest,
while noting that there are reports of trepanations being performed
by healers in highland Peru and Bolivia into the twentieth century.

The Kangxi Emperors Mountain Estate in Poetry and Prints

In 1712, the Kangxi emperor


published Imperial Poems on
the Mountain Estate for Escaping the Heat (Yuzhi Bishu shanzhuang shi) to commemorate his
recently completed summer palace. Through his perceptions of
thirty-six of its most scenic views,
his poems and descriptions present an unusually intimate selfportrait of the emperor at the age
of sixty that reflected the pleasures of his life there as well as his ideals as the ruler of the Qing Empire. Kangxi was closely involved in
the production of the book and ordered several of his outstanding
court artiststhe painter Shen Yu and the engravers Zhu Gui and
Mei Yufengto produce woodblock prints of the Thirty-Six Views,
which set a new standard for topographical illustration. He also
ordered Matteo Ripa, an Italian missionary serving as a court artist,
to translate these images into the medium of copperplate engraving, which introduced this technique to China. Ripas hybridized
interpretations soon began to circulate in Europe and influenced
contemporary aesthetic debates about the nature and virtues of
the Chinese garden. This artistic collaboration between a Chinese
emperor and a western missionary-artist thus marked a significant
moment in intercultural imagination, production, and transmission
during an earlier phase of globalization.

Cultural Landscape Heritage in


Sub-Saharan Africa
EDITED BY

John Beardsley

Sub-Saharan Africa is one of the


longest occupied and least studied landscapes on earth. While
scholarship has been attentive
to images of nature made by the
regions explorers and settlers
and to landscapes of the colonial erapublic parks and game
preserves, botanical gardens and
urban planssurprisingly little
attention has been paid to spaces
created by and for Africans themselves, from the precolonial era
to the present. This book is a contribution to a small but growing
effort to address this oversight. Its essays present a range of landscapes: pathways and cairns used by nomadic peoples to navigate
through and mark significant places; anthropogenic or managed
forests consecrated to ritual purposes of various kinds; tombs or
palaces with significant landscape orientations and components;
even monumental ceremonial and urban spaces, as at Great Zimbabwe or Djenne. They explore what we know of precolonial and
later indigenous designed landscapes, how these landscapes were
understood in the colonial era, and how they are being recuperated today for nation building, identity formation, and cultural
affirmation. Contributors engage with the most critical issues in
preservation today, from the conflicts between cultural heritage
and biodiversity protection to the competition between local and
international heritage agendas.

North Africa under Byzantium and


Early Islam
EDITED BY

Susan T. Stevens Jonathan P. Conant

The profound economic and strategic significance of the province


of Africa made the Maghreb
highly contested in the Byzantine
periodby the Roman (Byzantine)
empire, Berber kingdoms, and
eventually also Muslim Arabsas
each group sought to gain, control, and exploit the region to its
own advantage. Scholars have
typically taken the failure of the
Byzantine endeavor in Africa as a
foregone conclusion. North Africa
under Byzantium and Early Islam reassesses this pessimistic vision
both by examining those elements of Romano-African identity
that provided continuity in a period of remarkable transition, and
by seeking to understand the transformations in African society
in the context of the larger post-Roman Mediterranean. Chapters
in this book address topics including the legacy of Vandal rule in
Africa, historiography and literature, art and architectural history,
the archaeology of cities and their rural hinterlands, the economy,
the family, theology, the cult of saints, Berbers, and the Islamic conquest, in an effort to consider the ways in which the imperial legacy
was re-interpreted, re-imagined, and put to new uses in Byzantine
and early Islamic Africa.

The Art of Reading

Common Frameworks

From Homer to Paul Celan

Rethinking the Developmental City in China

Jean Bollack

Christopher C. M. Lee

The Art of Reading is the first


long
overduecollection
of
essays by the French classical
philologist and humanist Jean
Bollack to be published in English. As the scope of the collection demonstrates, Bollack felt
at home thinking in depth about
two things that seem starkly different to most other thinkers. We
see on the one hand the classics
of Greek poetry and philosophy,
including the relatively obscure,
but in his hands illuminating, rereadings of Greek philosophy by
the doxographers. Then, on the
other hand, there is modern, including contemporary, poetry. The
author of monumental commentaries on the Oedipus Tyrannos of
Sophocles and on the fragments of Empedocles, Bollack cultivated
in himself and in a generation of students (academics and others)
a way to read both sets of texts closely that is as uncompromising and demanding of the interpreter as it is of the reader of the
interpretation. The results, which this wide-ranging but compact
collection brings to mind, are designed to get beyond flat and clichd approaches to familiar works and to awaken the reader anew
to the aesthetics, the complexity, and the intelligence that careful
reconstruction of the text can bring to light.

The Harvard GSD Aecom Project on China was a three-year research


and design project premised on two fundamental ambitions: recuperating an idea of the city and pursuing alternative forms of
urbanization in response to the challenges posed by the developmental city in China. The former treats the project of the city as a
cultural, political, and aesthetic act; the latter views the city as a
site for urbanization, articulated through architecture, landscape,
and infrastructure. This endeavor is analytical and propositional
in equal measure. Each year, the Project on China focused on a
theoretical problem and practical challenge posed by the model
of the developmental city in China, using a particular city as an
exemplar: the megaplot with Xiamen as a case study; the future
of the city in city-regions and the effects of cross-border urbanization, with Macau as the paradigm; and the status of the countryside in the context of state-driven initiatives to urbanize rural
areas. Common Frameworks brings together design projects from
a sixteen-week studio over three years, with research and writings
on cultural, political, and historical aspects of the city. It presents a
critical reflection on the developmental city and the recent hyperrapid urbanization in China.

inherited from its revolutionary
past? How do the realities and
memories, aesthetics and practices of the Mao era still reverberate in the post-Mao cultural landscape? The essays in this volume
propose red legacies as a new
critical framework from which to
examine the profusion of cultural
productions and afterlives of the
communist revolution in order to
understand Chinas continuities
and transformations from socialism to postsocialism. Organized
into five partsred foundations,
red icons, red classics, red bodies, and red shadowsthe books
interdisciplinary contributions focus on visual and performing arts,
literature and film, language and thought, architecture, museums,
and memorials. Mediating at once unfulfilled ideals and unmourned
ghosts across generations, red cultural legacies suggest both
inheritance and debt, and can be mobilized to support as well as to
critique the status quo.

Burying Autumn
Poetry, Friendship, and Loss

Hu Ying
Autumn wind, autumn rain, fill my
heart with sorrowthese were
the last words of Qiu Jin (1875
1907), written before she was
beheaded for plotting to overthrow the Qing empire. Eventually, she would be celebrated as
a Republican martyr and Chinas
first feminist, her last words committed to memory by schoolchildren. Yet during her lifetime
she was often seen as eccentric,
even deviant; in her death, and
still more in the forced abandonment of her remains, the authorities had wanted her to disappear
into historical oblivion.
Burying Autumn tells the story of the enduring friendship between
Qiu Jin and her sworn-sisters Wu Zhiying and Xu Zihua, who braved
political persecution to give her a proper burial. Formed amidst
social upheaval, their bond found its most poignant expression
in Wu and Xus mourning for Qiu. The archives of this friendship
letters, poems, biographical sketches, steles, and hand-copied
sutravividly display how these women understood the concrete
experiences of modernity, how they articulated those experiences
through traditional art forms, and how their artworks transformed
the cultural traditions they invoked even while maintaining deep
cultural roots. In enabling Qiu Jin to acquire historical significance,
their friendship fulfilled its ultimate socially transformative
potential.
Hu Ying is Professor of East Asian Languages and Literature at the
University of California, Irvine.

After the Prosperous Age

Celestial Masters

State and Elites in Early Nineteenth-Century Suzhou

History and Ritual in Early Daoist Communities

Seunghyun Han

Terry F. Kleeman

Scholars have described the


eighteenth century in China as
a time of state activism when
the state sought to strengthen its
control on various social and cultural sectors. The Taiping Rebellion and the postbellum restoration efforts of the mid-nineteenth
century have frequently been
associated with the origins of
elite activism. However, drawing upon a wide array of sources,
including previously untapped
Qing government documents,
After the Prosperous Age argues
that the ascendance of elite
activism can be traced to the Jiaqing and Daoguang reigns in the
early nineteenth century, and that the Taiping Rebellion served as
a second catalyst for the expansion of elite public roles rather than
initiating such an expansion.

In 142 CE, the divine Lord Lao


descended to Mount Cranecall
(Sichuan province) to establish
a new covenant with humanity
through a man named Zhang
Ling, the first Celestial Master.
Facing an impending apocalypse
caused by centuries of sin, Zhang
and his descendants forged a
communal faith centering on a
universal priesthood, strict codes
of conduct, and healing through
the confession of sins; this faith
was based upon a new, bureaucratic relationship with incorruptible supernatural administrators.
By the fourth century, Celestial Master Daoism had spread to all
parts of China, and has since played a key role in Chinas religious
and intellectual history.

The first four decades of the nineteenth century in China remain


almost uncharted territory. By analyzing the social and cultural
interplay between state power and local elites of Suzhou, a
city renowned for its economic prosperity and strong sense of
local pride, from the eighteenth to the early nineteenth century,
Seunghyun Han illuminates the significance of this period in terms
of the reformulation of state-elite relations marked by the unfolding
of elite public activism and the dissolution of a centralized cultural
order.

Celestial Masters is the first book in any Western language devoted


solely to the founding of the world religion Daoism. It traces the
movement from the mid-second century CE through the sixth
century, examining all surviving primary documents in both secular
and canonical sources to offer a comprehensive account of the
development of this poorly understood religion. It also provides a
detailed analysis of ritual life within the movement, covering the
roles of common believer or Daoist citizen, novice, and priest or
libationer.

Seunghyun Han is Associate Professor in the Department of


History at Konkuk University in Seoul, Korea.

Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Colorado

The Ancient State of Puy in


Northeast Asia

Translations Forgotten History

Mark E. Byington

Heekyoung Cho

Archaeology and Historical Memory

Mark E. Byington explores the


formation, history, and legacy of
the ancient state of Puy, which
existed in central Manchuria
from the third century BCE until
the late fifth century CE. As the
earliest archaeologically attested
state to arise in northeastern
Asia, Puy occupies an important
place in the history of that region,
but its history and culture have
rarely been touched on in scholarly works in any language. Utilizing recently discovered archaeological materials from northeast
China as well as a wide variety of
historical records, this book explores the social and political processes associated with the formation and development of the Puy
state, and shows how the historical legacy of Puyits historical
memorycontributed to modes of statecraft of later northeast
Asian states and provided a basis for a developing historiographical
tradition on the Korean peninsula. Byington focuses on two major
aspects of state formation: as a social process leading to the formation of a state-level polity called Puy, and as a political process
associated with a variety of devices intended to assure the stability
and perpetuation of the inegalitarian social structures of several
early states in the Korea-Manchuria region.

Russian Literature, Japanese Mediation, and the Formation of


Modern Korean Literature

Translations Forgotten History


investigates the meanings and
functions that translation generated for modern national literatures during their formative
period and reconsiders literature
as part of a dynamic translational
process of negotiating foreign
values. By examining the triadic
literary and cultural relations
among Russia, Japan, and colonial Korea and revealing a shared
sensibility and literary experience in East Asia (which referred
to Russia as a significant other in
the formation of its own modern
literatures), this book highlights translation as a radical and ineradicable partnot merely a catalyst or complementof the formation
of modern national literature. Translations Forgotten History thus
rethinks the way modern literature developed in Korea and East
Asia. While national canons are founded on amnesia regarding their
process of formation, framing literature from the beginning as a
process rather than an entity allows a more complex and accurate
understanding of national literature formation in East Asia and may
also provide a model for world literature today.

Plucking Chrysanthemums

Narushima Ryhoku and Sinitic Literary Traditions in


Modern Japan

Matthew Fraleigh
Plucking Chrysanthemums is
a critical study of the life and
works of Narushima Ryhoku
(18371884): Confucian scholar,
world traveler, pioneering journalist, and irrepressible satirist. A
major figure on the nineteenthcentury Japanese cultural scene,
Ryhoku wrote works deeply
rooted in classical Sinitic literary traditions. Sinitic poetry and
prose enjoyed a central and prestigious place in Japan for nearly
all of its history, and the act of
composing it continued to offer
modern Japanese literary figures
the chance to incorporate themselves into a written tradition that
transcended national borders. Adopting Ryhokus multifarious
invocations of Six Dynasties poet Tao Yuanming as an organizing motif, Matthew Fraleigh traces the disparate ways in which
Ryhoku drew upon the Sinitic textual heritage over the course of
his career. The classical figure of this famed Chinese poet and the
Sinitic tradition as a whole constituted a referential repository to
be shaped, shifted, and variously spun to meet the emerging circumstances of the writer as well as his expressive aims. This is the
first book-length study of Ryhoku in a Western language and also
one of the first Western-language monographs to examine Sinitic
poetry and prose (kanshibun) composition in modern Japan.
Matthew Fraleigh is Associate Professor of East Asian Literature
and Culture at Brandeis University.

Struggling Upward

Worldly Success and the Japanese Novel

Timothy J. Van Compernolle


Struggling Upward reconsiders
the rise and maturation of the
modern novel in Japan by connecting the genre to new discourses on ambition and social
mobility. Collectively called risshin shusse, these discourses
accompanied the spread of
industrial capitalism and the
emergence of a new nation-state
in the archipelago. Drawing primarily on historicist strategies of
literary criticism, the book situates the Meiji novel in relation to
a range of texts from different
culturally demarcated zones: the
visual arts, scandal journalism, self-help books, and materials on
immigration to the colonies, among others. Timothy J. Van Compernolle connects these Japanese materials to topics of broad
theoretical interest within literary and cultural studies, including
imperialism, gender, modernity, novel studies, print media, and the
public sphere. As the first monograph to link the novel to risshin
shusse, Struggling Upward argues that social mobility is the privileged lens through which Meiji novelists explored abstract concepts of national belonging, social hierarchy, and the new space of
an industrializing nation.

Peasants, Power, and Place


Revolution in the Villages of Kharkiv Province,
19141921

Mark R. Baker
Peasants, Power, and Place is the first English-language book to
focus on Ukrainian-speaking peasants during the revolutionary
period from 1914 to 1921. In contrast to the many studies written
from the perspectives of the Ukrainian national movements leaders
or the Bolsheviks or urban workers, this book portrays this period of
war, revolution, and civil war from the viewpoints of the villagers
the overwhelming majority of the population of what became
Ukraine. Utilizing previously unavailable archival documents, Mark R.
Baker opens a unique and neglected window into the tumultuous
events of those years in Ukraine and across the crumbling Russian
Empire. One of Bakers key arguments is that the peasants of
Kharkiv province thought of themselves primarily as members of
their particular village communities, and not as members of any
nation or classideas to which peasants were only then being
introduced. Thus this study helps to move the historiography
beyond the narrow and ideologized categories created during
the Cold War and still employed today. Readers will gain a broader
understanding of the ways in which the majority of the population
experienced these crucial years in Ukraines history.

Prasun (Wasi) is the most aberrant of the Nuristani languages,
part of the Indo-Iranian branch
of Indo-European languages. It
is spoken in the Prasun Valley
of the Pech River in northeast
Afghanistan. Prasun is a nonliterary, unwritten language, and
it varies from village to village.
Materialien zur Prasun-Sprache
des Afghanischen Hindukusch is
the fruit of many years of work
by Georg Buddruss, assisted
in the last few years by Almuth
Degener. The texts, in prose and
a few songs, were collected by
Buddruss in 1956 and 1970. Included are all the texts collected,
along with a German translation, a glossary, lists of numbers, place
and personal names, and the Prasun calendar system. The volume
also includes a brief Introduction in English. A second volume to
come will contain an extensive grammar.
Apart from its linguistic value, the present book is also very
important as it includes many Kafiri myths, still known in 1956,
from the time before the forced Islamization in 1895. The ancient
pagan religion has survived only in the texts and in some customs
described in this book.

One-Way Street
Walter Benjamin
Edited by Michael W. Jennings
Translated by Edmund Jephcott
Preface by Greil Marcus
One-Way Street is a thoroughfare unlike anything else in literatureby turns exhilarating
and bewildering, requiring mental agility and a special kind of urban literacy. Presented
here in a new edition with expanded notes, this genre-defying meditation on the semiotics
of late-1920s Weimar culture offers a fresh opportunity to encounter Walter Benjamin at his
most virtuosic and experimental, writing in a vein that anticipates later masterpieces such
as On the Concept of History and The Arcades Project.
Composed of sixty short prose pieces that vary wildly in style and theme, One-Way Street
evokes a dense cityscape, alive with the hubbub of social interactions and papered
over with public inscriptions of all kinds: advertisements, signs, posters, slogans. Benjamin avoids all semblance of linear narrative, enticing readers with a seemingly random
sequence of aphorisms, reminiscences, jokes, off-the-cuff observations, dreamlike fantasias, serious philosophical inquiries, apparently unserious philosophical parodies, and
trenchant political commentaries.
Drawing on the avant-garde aesthetics of Dada, Constructivism, and Surrealism, Benjamins
unusual construction implies a practice of reading that cannot be reduced to simple
formulas. Still refractory, still radical, One-Way Street is a work in perpetual progress.

Between the eighteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, countless African Americans passed
as white, leaving behind families and friends, roots and community. It was, as Allyson Hobbs
writes, a chosen exile, a separation from one racial identity and the leap into another. This
revelatory history of passing explores the possibilities and challenges that racial indeterminacy presented to men and women living in a country obsessed with racial distinctions.

Hate Crimes in Cyberspace

The Cultural Matrix


Understanding Black Youth

Danielle Keats Citron

EDITED BY

In an in-depth investigation of a
problem that is too often trivialized by lawmakers and the media,
Danielle Keats Citron exposes
the startling extent of personal
cyber-attacks
and
proposes
practical, lawful ways to prevent
and punish online harassment.
Vividly written and carefully
argued, the book is a fine account
of law in this area . . .We should, as
Citron argues, reject the facile
romanticization of the Internet as
the last frontier of true freedom.
We should acknowledge that the
Internet both facilitates expression
and silences, both allows speech and muzzles it . . .Citron confronts the
perpetual free-speech/First Amendment problems attendant to her family
of proposals head-on, and the case she makes is persuasive.
Martha C. Nussbaum, THE NATION
There sometimes seems to be a river of hate on the Internet, flowing steadily
through different social media; people are often hurt, and there is no
obvious end to it. In this book, Danielle Citron, an American law professor,
proposes, with quiet authority, how we, as digital citizens, lawmakers,
Internet intermediaries and educators, can make a change.

Orlando Patterson

With Ethan Fosse


The Cultural Matrix seeks to
unravel a uniquely American paradox: the socioeconomic crisis,
segregation, and social isolation
of disadvantaged black youth, on
the one hand, and their extraordinary integration and prominence in popular culture on the
other. Despite school dropout
rates over 40 percent, a third
spending time in prison, chronic
unemployment, and endemic
violence, black youth are among
the most vibrant creators of popular culture in the world. They
also espouse several deeply-held
American values. To understand this conundrum, the authors bring
culture back to the forefront of explanation.
Considering recent tragedies and protests involving black youths, the
police and the legal systemalong with the centuries of devastation
wrought by racial biasa work exploring the impact of culture is both
timely and welcome . . . Patterson and his peers present a balanced, rigorous
interpretation of culture, with ample empirical evidence, and include the
actual voices and viewpoints of black youths . . .They also suggest possible
strategies and tactics for the ways in which culture can be understood and
employed to improve the lives of black youthsin all their rich diversity and
potential.

Corruption in America

Too Big to Jail

Zephyr Teachout

Brandon L. Garrett

From Benjamin Franklins Snuff Box to Citizens United

A Moyers & Company Best Book of the Year

When Louis XVI presented Benjamin Franklin with a snuff box


encrusted with diamonds and
inset with the Kings portrait, the
gift troubled Americans: it threatened to corrupt Franklin by
clouding his judgment or altering
his attitude toward the French.
This broad understanding of
political corruption was a driving force at the Constitutional
Convention. In the 1970s the U.S.
Supreme Court began to narrow
the definition of corruption, and
the meaning has since changed
dramatically.
At last . . . a book that puts a name to what is perhaps the most significant
factor shaping American politics today: corruption. In a masterly work of
scholarship, Zephyr Teachout . . . traces the history of American approaches
to what was long considered a mortal threat to the republic.
Sarah Chayes, WALL STREET JOURNAL
You have probably heard pundits say we are living in an age of legalized
bribery; this is the book that makes their case in careful detail . . . And
all of it has happened, Teachout admonishes, because the founders
understanding of corruption has been methodically taken apart by a
Supreme Court that cynically pretends to worship the founders every word.

How Prosecutors Compromise with Corporations

American courts routinely hand


down harsh sentences to individual convicts, but a very different standard of justice applies to
corporations. Too Big to Jail takes
readers into a complex, compromised world of backroom deals,
for an unprecedented look at
what happens when criminal
charges are brought against a
major company in the United
States.
The breadth of Garretts investigation, the wealth of detail he uses to
support his conclusions, and the
clarity of his prose make this an
important book for laymen and experts alike.
Jed S. Rakoff, NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
Like the poor, corporate criminals will always be with us. All future

The Lives of Muhammad

Coup dtat

A Practical Handbook, Revised Edition

Kecia Ali

Edward N. Luttwak
The Lives of Muhammad delves
into the many ways the Prophets life story has been told from
the earliest days of Islam to the
present, by both Muslims and
non-Muslims. Emphasizing the
major transformations since the
nineteenth century, Kecia Ali
shows that far from being mutually opposed, these various perspectives have become increasingly interdependent.

Alis coverage of historical shifts


among Muhammads followers
and opponents alike challenges our
ideas about universal norms . . . The
Lives of Muhammad leads its reader to rethink assumptions about history,
biography and the imagined EastWest divide . . . [It] serves to skillfully
complicate modern debates over Muhammads life and character, and his
relevance for modern Muslims.
Michael Muhammad Knight, WASHINGTON POST
Muhammad presents two violently incompatible faces to the historian.
For devout Muslims, relying both on the Quran and the vast corpus of
sacred traditions, the hadith, he serves as the unimpeachable model for
human behavior . . . For non-Muslims, drawing on the same sources, he has
been viewed from the earliest times as lustful and barbarous, as a raving
impostor aping the ancient prophets . . .The contrast is so stark as to appear
irreconcilable. Instead of attempting to skirt this divergence, Ali uses it to
structure her inquiry.
Eric Ormsby, WALL STREET JOURNAL
Kecia Ali is Associate Professor of Religion at Boston University.

Coup dtat astonished readers


when it first appeared in 1968
because it showed, step-by-step,
how governments could be overthrown. Translated into sixteen
languages, it has inspired anticoup precautions by regimes
around the world. In addition
to these detailed instructions,
Edward Luttwaks revised handbook offers an altogether new
way of looking at political power
one that considers, for example,
the vulnerability of even the most
stable democracies in the event
of prolonged economic distress.
The world has changed dramatically in the past half century, but
not the essence of the coup dtat. Luttwak identifies conditions
that make countries vulnerable to a coup, and he outlines the
necessary stages of planning, from recruitment of coconspirators
to postcoup promises of progress and stability. But much more
broadly, his investigation of coupsupdated for the twenty-first
centuryuncovers important truths about the nature of political
power.
Edward N. Luttwak serves or has served as a contractor for the
Office of Net Assessment of the U.S. Department of Defense and
for the U.S. armed forces, and as a consultant to the U.S. National
Security Council, the White House Chief of Staff, and several
allied governments.

Jrgen Leonhardt has written a


full history of Latin from antiquity
to the present, uncovering how
this once parochial dialect developed into a vehicle of global
communication that remained
vital long after its spoken form
was supplanted by modern
languages.
Leonhardt has dethroned Latin
from its traditional position as a
marmoreal, static sidekick to Greek
and taught us to understand the
history not only of Latin, but of
language and literature, in a new
way. His approach seems natural
in a time of intellectual globalization, but it is the fruit of hard thinking,
and adds to our sense of the complex ways in which language and power
intersect.

The Tupac Amaru Rebellion

The Great Acceleration

An Environmental History of the Anthropocene since 1945

Charles F. Walker

J. R. McNeill Peter Engelke

A Financial Times Best Book of the Year


Norris and Carol Hundley Award, American Historical Association

The largest rebellion in the


history of Spains American
empirea conflict greater in territory and costlier in lives than
the contemporaneous American
Revolutionbegan as a local
revolt against colonial authorities
in 1780. As an official collector
of tribute for the imperial crown,
Jos Gabriel Condorcanqui had
seen firsthand what oppressive
Spanish rule meant for Perus
Indian population. Adopting the
Inca royal name Tupac Amaru, he
set events in motion that would
transform him into Latin Americas most iconic revolutionary figure.
[This is] the first extended survey of the causes and the course of the
Tupac Amaru rebellion to appear in English since 1966 . . .[It] is a lucid
and accessible survey in which Walker skillfully blends narrative with
explanation to construct a harrowing story of violence and atrocities on
an enormous scale . . .[It] will give Anglophone readers a perceptive and
reliable account of the terrible events that occurred far away from what
they naturally regard as the principal center of action at that time, the
British North American colonies, a mere 322,000 square miles in size, as
compared with an Andean surface area approaching two million.

The Earth has entered a new age


the
Anthropocenein
which
humans are the most powerful
influence on global ecology. Since
the mid-twentieth century, the
accelerating pace of energy use,
greenhouse gas emissions, and
population growth has thrust the
planet into a massive uncontrolled
experiment. The Great Acceleration explains its causes and consequences, highlighting the role
of energy systems, as well as
trends in climate change, urbanization, and environmentalism.
The period from 1945 to the present represents the most anomalous period in the history of humanitys relationship with the biosphere. Three-quarters of the carbon
dioxide humans have contributed to the atmosphere has accumulated since World War II ended, and the number of people on Earth
has nearly tripled. So far, humans have dramatically altered the
planets biogeochemical systems without consciously managing
them. If we try to control these systems through geoengineering,
we will inaugurate another stage of the Anthropocene. Where it
might lead, no one can say for sure.

The Myth of Race

The Troubling Persistence of an Unscientific Idea

Robert Wald Sussman

The Christian Transformation of Sexual Morality in


Late Antiquity

Kyle Harper
Biological races do not exist
and never have. This view is
shared by all scientists who study
variation in human populations.
Yet racial prejudice and intolerance based on the myth of race
remain deeply ingrained in Western society. In his powerful examination of a persistent, false, and
poisonous idea, Robert Sussman
explores how race emerged as a
social construct from early biblical justifications to the pseudoscientific studies of today.

[Sussman] contends that, in the face


of a longstanding scientific consensus
that race possesses no biological basis, many people still mistakenly believe
that traits like aggression, intelligence, and generosity can be traced to
it . . .Sussman makes his contribution by exposing the ways that academic
science is invoked to authorize an outmoded concept.
PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Sussman does a masterful job of tracing racist thought in western Europe
and the U.S. from 15th-century polygenics through the eugenics of the 20th
century to the continued racism and anti-immigration stances of todays
radical Right. . .This book should be in every library, from high school
through public to university, in hopes that it will affect some minds before
they become completely shuttered by prejudice.

From Shame to Sin

Award for Excellence in the Study of Religion,


American Academy of Religion

A Choice Outstanding Academic Title of the Year

The transformation of the Roman


world from polytheistic to Christian is one of the most sweeping
ideological changes of premodern history. At the center was
sex. Kyle Harper examines how
Christianity changed the ethics
of sexual behavior from shame to
sin, and shows how the roots of
modern sexuality are grounded
in an ancient religious revolution.
I wish that I had had a book as
clear, as cogent, and as intellectually
responsible as Harpers From Shame
to Sin before me when I began to
write on similar topics in the early
1980s, some third of a century ago. One can only envy the good fortune of
those who can now embark on their own work with such a book in hand.
Peter Brown, NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
Harper brings a classicists expertise to this rich, provocative account
of early Christian attempts to transform Roman sexual culture and the
understandings of the body, property, sexuality, and the cosmos that formed
its basis. . . Students of classics, Christian ethics, and the New Testament
will find this outstanding book indispensable.

Evolution and Human


Sexual Behavior

Minds Online

Teaching Effectively with Technology

Michelle D. Miller

Peter B. Gray Justin R. Garcia


A comprehensive survey of the
evolutionary science of human
sexual behavior, this book invites
us to imagine human sex from
the vantage point of our primate
cousins, in order to underscore
the role of evolution in shaping
all that happens, biologically and
behaviorally, when romantic passions are aroused.
One of the best that I have read on
the subject and a useful resource
for anyone interested in the field of
sexual selection and reproductive
behavior in humans. . .I would highly
recommend this book to anyone
interested in human reproduction from an evolutionary perspective. The
amount of material covered is impressive and the maintenance of academic
rigor while producing an interesting, readable text is to be applauded.
Ryan Schacht, AMERICAN JOURNAL OF HUMAN BIOLOGY
Provides an insightful review of sexual behavior and sexuality across
species, across history, and across the individual lifespan with an
evolutionarily informed perspective.

From wired campuses to smart


classrooms to massive open
online courses (MOOCs), digital technology is now firmly
embedded in higher education.
But the dizzying pace of innovation, combined with a dearth of
evidence on the effectiveness of
new tools and programs, challenges educators to articulate
how technology can best fit into
the learning experience. Minds
Online is a concise, nontechnical
guide for academic leaders and
instructors who seek to advance
learning in this changing environment, through a sound scientific understanding of how the
human brain assimilates knowledge.
If you teach with technology in any form, at any level, I recommend you
put this book at the top of your tottering pile of required reading on higher
education. Its an outstanding book that provides a road map for truly
effective online teaching. What distinguishes [Millers] book from much of
the research available on teaching with technology, and pushes it beyond
arguments about improving access, is her emphasis on the ways in which
online teaching tools can actually improve learning for all studentsnot
just those who have no access to traditional face-to-face classrooms.
