Before the Revolution
AMERI CA’S ANCI ENT PASTS
DANIEL K. RICHTER
America began, we are often told, with the Founding Fathers, the men who waged a rev-
olution and created a unique place called the United States. We may acknowledge the
early Jamestown and Puritan colonists and mourn the dispossession of Native Americans,
but we rarely grapple with the complexity of the nation’s
pre-revolutionary past. In this pathbreaking revision, Daniel
Richter shows that the United States has a much deeper
history than is apparent—that far from beginning with a
clean slate, it is a nation with multiple pasts that stretch
back as far as the Middle Ages, pasts whose legacies con-
tinue to shape the present.
Exploring a vast range of original sources, Before
the Revolution spans more than seven centuries and ranges
across North America, Europe, and Africa. Richter recovers
the lives of a stunning array of peoples—Indians, Spaniards,
French, Dutch, Africans, English—as they struggled with
one another and with their own people for control of land
and resources. Their struggles occurred in a global context
and built upon the remains of what came before. Gradu-
ally and unpredictably, distinctive patterns of North American culture took shape on a
continent where no one yet imagined there would be nations called the United States,
Canada, or Mexico.
By seeing these trajectories on their own dynamic terms, rather than merely as
a prelude to independence, Richter’s epic vision reveals the deepest origins of American
history.

The Picture of Dorian Gray
AN ANNOTATED, UNCENSORED EDI TI ON
OSCAR WILDE
EDI TED BY NI CHOLAS FRANKEL
The Picture of Dorian Gray altered the way Victorians understood the world they inhab-
ited. It heralded the end of a repressive Victorianism, and after its publication, literature
had—in the words of biographer Richard Ellmann—“a different look.” Yet the Dorian
Gray that Victorians never knew was even more daring than the novel the British press
condemned as “vulgar,” “unclean,” “poisonous,” “discreditable,” and “a sham.” Now,
more than 120 years after Wilde handed it over to his
publisher, J. B. Lippincott & Company, Wilde’s uncensored
typescript is published for the first time, in an annotated,
extensively illustrated edition.
The novel’s first editor, J. M. Stoddart, excised
material—especially homosexual content—he thought
would offend his readers’ sensibilities. When Wilde
enlarged the novel for the 1891 edition, he responded to
his critics by further toning down its “immoral” elements.
The differences between the text Wilde submitted to Lip-
pincott and published versions of the novel have until
now been evident to only the handful of scholars who
have examined Wilde’s typescript.
Wilde famously said that Dorian Gray “contains much of me”: Basil Hallward is “what
I think I am,” Lord Henry “what the world thinks me,” and “Dorian what I would like to be—
in other ages, perhaps.” Wilde’s comment suggests a backward glance to a Greek or Dorian
Age, but also a forward-looking view to a more permissive time than his own, which saw Wilde
sentenced to two years’ hard labor for gross indecency. The appearance of Wilde’s uncensored
text is cause for celebration.

Confessions of a Young Novelist
UMBERTO ECO
Umberto Eco published his first novel, The Name of the Rose, in 1980, when he was nearly
fifty. In these “confessions,” the author, now in his late seventies, looks back on his long career
as a theorist and his more recent work as a novelist, and explores their fruitful conjunction.
He begins by exploring the boundary between fiction and nonfiction—playfully, seri-
ously, brilliantly roaming across this frontier of interpretation. Good nonfiction, he believes, is
crafted like a whodunnit, and a skilled novelist builds precisely detailed worlds through obser-
vation and research. Taking us on a tour of his own creative
method, Eco recalls how he designed his fictional realms. He
began with specific images, made choices of period, location, and
voice, and composed stories that would appeal to both sophisti-
cated and popular readers. The blending of the real and the fictive
extends to the inhabitants of such invented worlds. Why are we
moved to tears by a character’s plight? In what sense do Anna
Karenina, Gregor Samsa, and Leopold Bloom “exist”?
At once a classicist, medievalist, and scholar of modern lit-
erature, Eco astonishes above all when he considers the pleasures
of enumeration. He shows that the humble list, the potentially
endless series, enables us to glimpse the infinite and approach the
ineffable. This “young novelist” is a master who has wise things to
impart about the art of fiction and the power of words.

Early Writings, 1910–1917
WALTER BENJAMIN
EDI TED BY HOWARD EI LAND
“YOUTH IS THE SLEEPING BEAUTY WHO SLUMBERS AND HAS NO INKLING OF THE
PRINCE WHO APPROACHES TO SET HER FREE. AND TO BRING ABOUT THE AWAKENING
OF YOUTH, ITS PARTICIPATION IN THE STRUGGLE GOING ON AROUND IT, IS PRECISELY
[OUR] GOAL . . .”
—FROM THE CHAPTER “SLEEPING BEAUTY”
Walter Benjamin became a published writer at the age of seventeen. Yet the first stirrings of this
most original of critical minds—penned during the years in which he transformed himself from
the comfortable son of a haute-bourgeois German Jewish
family into the nomadic, uncompromising philosopher-critic
we have since come to appreciate—have until now
remained largely unavailable in English. Early Writings,
1910–1917 rectifies this situation, documenting the form-
ative intellectual experiences of one of the twentieth cen-
tury’s most resolutely independent thinkers.
Here we see the young Benjamin in his various roles
as moralist, cultural critic, school reformer, and poet-
philosopher. The diversity of interest and profundity of
thought characteristic of his better-known work from the
1920s and ’30s are already in evidence, as we witness the
emergence of critical projects that would occupy Benjamin
throughout his intellectual career: the role of the present in
historical remembrance, the relationship of the intellectual
to political action, the idea of truth in works of art, and the investigation of language as the
veiled medium of experience.
Even at this early stage, a recognizably Benjaminian way of thinking comes into view—
a daring, boundary-crossing enterprise that does away with classical antitheses in favor of the
relentlessly seeking critical consciousness that produced the groundbreaking works of his later
years. With the publication of these early writings, our portrait of one of the most significant
intellects of the twentieth century edges closer to completion.

The Turbulent World of Franz Göll
AN ORDI NARY BERLI NER WRI TES THE TWENTI ETH CENTURY
PETER FRITZSCHE
Franz Göll was a thoroughly typical Berliner. He worked as a clerk, sometimes as a postal
employee, night watchman, or publisher’s assistant. He enjoyed the movies, ate spice cake,
wore a fedora, tamed sparrows, and drank beer or schnapps. He lived his entire life in a two-
room apartment in Rote Insel, Berlin’s famous working-class district. What makes Franz Göll dif-
ferent is that he left behind one of the most comprehensive diaries
available from the maelstrom of twentieth-century German life.
Deftly weaving in Göll’s voice from his diary entries, Peter Fritzsche
narrates the quest of an ordinary citizen to make sense of a violent
and bewildering century.
Fritzsche paints a deeply affecting portrait of a self-educated
man seized by an untamable impulse to record, who stayed put for
nearly seventy years as history thundered around him. Determined
to compose a “symphony” from the music of everyday life, Göll
wrote of hungry winters during World War I, the bombing of Berlin,
the rape of his neighbors by Russian soldiers in World War II, and the
flexing of U.S. superpower during the Reagan years. In his early
entries, Göll grappled with the intellectual shockwaves cast by Dar-
win, Freud, and Einstein, and later he struggled to engage with the
strange lifestyles that marked Germany’s transition to a fluid,
dynamic, unmistakably modern society.
With expert analysis, Fritzsche shows how one man’s
thoughts and desires can give poignant shape to the collective experience of twentieth-century
life, registering its manifold shocks and rendering them legible.

Desert Hell
THE BRI TI SH I NVASI ON OF MESOPOTAMI A
CHARLES TOWNSHEND
The U.S.-led conquest and occupation of Iraq have kept that troubled country in international
headlines since 2003. For America’s major Coalition ally, Great Britain, however, this latest
incursion into the region played out against the dramatic backdrop of imperial history: Britain’s
fateful invasion of Mesopotamia in 1914 and the creation of a nation from the shards of war.
The objectives of the expedition sent by the British Government of India were primarily
strategic: to protect the Raj, impress Britain’s military power upon Arabs chafing under Ottoman
rule, and secure the Persian oil supply. But over the course
of the Mesopotamian campaign, these goals expanded, and
by the end of World War I Britain was committed to con-
trolling the entire region from Suez to India. The conquest
of Mesopotamia and the creation of Iraq were the central
acts in this boldly opportunistic bid for supremacy. Charles
Townshend provides a compelling account of the atrocious,
unnecessary suffering inflicted on the expedition’s mostly
Indian troops, which set the pattern for Britain’s follow-
up campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan over the next seven
years. He chronicles the overconfidence, incompetence,
and dangerously vague policy that distorted the mission,
and examines the steps by which an initially cautious
strategic operation led to imperial expansion on a vast scale.
Desert Hell is a cautionary tale for makers of national policy. And for those with an inter-
est in imperial history, it raises searching questions about Britain’s quest for global power and
the indelible consequences of those actions for the Middle East and the world.

Dance of the Furies
EUROPE AND THE OUTBREAK OF WORLD WAR I
MICHAEL S. NEIBERG
The common explanation for the outbreak of World War I depicts Europe as a minefield of
nationalism, needing only the slightest pressure to set off an explosion of passion that would rip
the continent apart. But in a crucial reexamination of the outbreak of violence, Michael Neiberg
shows that ordinary Europeans, unlike their political and military leaders, neither wanted nor
expected war during the fateful summer of 1914. By training his eye
on the ways that people outside the halls of power reacted to the
rapid onset and escalation of the fighting, Neiberg dispels the notion
that Europeans were rabid nationalists intent on mass slaughter. He
reveals instead a complex set of allegiances that cut across national
boundaries.
Neiberg marshals letters, diaries, and memoirs of ordinary
citizens across Europe to show that the onset of war was experi-
enced as a sudden, unexpected event. As they watched a minor
diplomatic crisis erupt into a continental bloodbath, they expressed
shock, revulsion, and fear. But when bargains between belligerent
governments began to crumble under the weight of conflict, public
disillusionment soon followed. Yet it was only after the fighting
acquired its own horrible momentum that national hatreds emerged
under the pressure of mutually escalating threats, wartime atroci-
ties, and intense government propaganda.
Dance of the Furies gives voice to a generation who found themselves compelled to par-
ticipate in a ghastly, protracted orgy of violence they never imagined would come to pass.

Creating Capabilities
THE HUMAN DEVELOPMENT APPROACH
MARTHA C. NUSSBAUM
If a country’s Gross Domestic Product increases each year, but so does the percentage of its
people deprived of basic education, health care, and other opportunities, is that country really
making progress? If we rely on conventional economic indicators, can we ever grasp how the
world’s billions of individuals are really managing?
In this powerful critique, Martha Nussbaum argues that our dominant theories of devel-
opment have given us policies that ignore our most basic human needs for dignity and self-
respect. For the past twenty-five years, Nussbaum has been
working on an alternate model to assess human develop-
ment: the Capabilities Approach. She and her colleagues
begin with the simplest of questions: What is each person
actually able to do and to be? What real opportunities are
available to them?
The Capabilities Approach to human progress has
until now been expounded only in specialized works. Cre-
ating Capabilities, however, affords anyone interested in
issues of human development a wonderfully lucid account
of the structure and practical implications of an alternate
model. It demonstrates a path to justice for both humans
and nonhumans, weighs its relevance against other philo-
sophical stances, and reveals the value of its universal
guidelines even as it acknowledges cultural difference. In
our era of unjustifiable inequity, Nussbaum shows how—
by attending to the narratives of individuals and grasping
the daily impact of policy—we can enable people everywhere to live full and creative lives.

The Union War
GARY W. GALLAGHER
“GALLAGHER [IS] ONE OF OUR FINEST HISTORIANS OF THE CIVIL WAR.”
—ROBERT BRENT TOPLIN, AMERICAN HISTORICAL REVIEW
Even one hundred and fifty years later, we are haunted by the Civil War—by its division, its
bloodshed, and, perhaps above all, by its origins. Today, many believe that the war was fought
over slavery. This answer satisfies our contemporary sense of justice, but as Gary Gallagher
shows in this brilliant revisionist history, it is an anachronistic judgment.
In a searing analysis of the Civil War North as revealed in contemporary letters, diaries,
and documents, Gallagher demonstrates that what motivated the
North to go to war and persist in an increasingly bloody effort was
primarily preservation of the Union. Devotion to the Union bonded
nineteenth-century Americans in the North and West against a
slaveholding aristocracy in the South and a Europe that seemed des-
tined for oligarchy. Northerners believed they were fighting to save
the republic, and with it, the world’s best hope for democracy.
Once we understand the centrality of union, we can in turn
appreciate the force that made northern victory possible: the citi-
zen-soldier. Gallagher reveals how the massive volunteer army of
the North fought to confirm American exceptionalism by salvaging
the Union. Contemporary concerns have distorted the reality of
nineteenth-century Americans, who embraced emancipation to pun-
ish secessionists and remove slavery as a future threat to union—
goals that emerged in the process of war. As Gallagher recovers why and how the Civil War was
fought, we gain a more honest understanding of why and how it was won.

The Essential Tagore
EDITED BY FAKRUL ALAM AND RADHA CHAKRAVARTY
The Essential Tagore showcases the genius of India’s Rabindranath Tagore, the first Asian Nobel
Laureate and possibly the most prolific and diverse serious writer the world has ever known.
Marking the 150th anniversary of Tagore’s birth, this ambitious collection—the largest
single volume of his work available in English—attempts to represent his extraordinary achieve-
ments in ten genres: poetry, songs, autobiographical works, letters, travel writings, prose, nov-
els, short stories, humorous pieces, and plays. In addition to the newest translations in the
modern idiom, it includes a sampling of works originally composed in English, his translations
of his own works, three poems omitted from the published version of the English Gitanjali, and
examples of his artwork.
Tagore’s writings are notable for their variety and innovation.
His Sonar Tari signaled a distinctive turn toward the symbolic in Ben-
gali poetry. “The Lord of Life,”
from his collection Chitra, created
controversy around his very per-
sonal concept of religion. Chokher
Bali marked a decisive moment in
the history of the Bengali novel
because of the way it delved into
the minds of men and women.
The skits in Vyangakautuk mocked
upper-class pretensions. Prose
pieces such as “The Problem and the Cure” were lauded by
nationalists, who also sang Tagore’s patriotic songs.
Translations for this volume were contributed by
Tagore specialists and writers of international stature, includ-
ing Amitav Ghosh, Amit Chaudhuri, and Sunetra Gupta.

Makers of Modern India
EDITED BY RAMACHANDRA GUHA
Modern India is the world’s largest democracy, a sprawling, polyglot nation containing one-
sixth of all humankind. The existence of such a complex and distinctive democratic regime
qualifies as one of the world’s bona fide political miracles. Furthermore, India’s leading politi-
cal thinkers have often served as its most influential political actors—think of Gandhi, whose
collected works run to more than ninety volumes, or Ambedkar, or Nehru, who recorded their
most eloquent theoretical reflections at the same time as they strove to set the delicate machin-
ery of Indian democracy on a coherent and just path.
Out of the speeches and writings of these thinker-
activists, Ramachandra Guha has built the first major anthology
of Indian social and political thought. Makers of Modern India
collects the work of nineteen of India’s foremost generators of
political sentiment, from those whose names command instant
global recognition to pioneering subaltern and feminist thinkers
whose works have until now remained obscure and inaccessi-
ble. Ranging across manifold languages and cultures, and address-
ing every crucial theme of modern Indian history—race, religion,
language, caste, gender, colonialism, nationalism, economic
development, violence, and nonviolence—Makers of Modern
India provides an invaluable roadmap to Indian political debate.
An extensive introduction, biographical sketches of each
figure, and guides to further reading make this work a rich resource for anyone interested in
India and the ways its leading political minds have grappled with the problems that have increas-
ingly come to define the modern world.

VOLUME I I I : FROM THE “AGE OF DI SCOVERY”
TO THE AGE OF ABOLI TI ON
PART 2 : EUROPE AND THE WORLD BEYOND
EDITED BY
DAVID BINDMAN &
HENRY LOUIS GATES, JR.
TEXT BY JEAN MI CHEL MASSI NG
In the 1960s, art patron Dominique de Menil
founded an image archive showing the ways
that people of African descent have been rep-
resented in Western art. Highlights from her
collection appeared in three large-format vol-
umes that quickly became collector’s items.
A half-century later, Harvard University Press
and the Du Bois Institute are proud to pub-
lish a complete set of ten sumptuous books,
including new editions of the original vol-
umes and two additional ones.
From the “Age of Discovery” to the
Age of Abolition: Europe and the World Beyond focuses geographically on peoples of South
America and the Mediterranean as well as Africa—but conceptually it emphasizes the many
ways that visual constructions of blacks mediated between Europe and a faraway African
continent that was impinging ever more closely on daily life, especially in cities and ports
engaged in slave trade. Images of blacks during this period did not follow European con-
tact per se but rather tracked the professions involved in painting, engraving, and print-
making, which were primarily based in Holland. Dutch masters’ representational mode
dominated the depiction of distant lands, and their works are featured in Part 2 of Vol-

Monsters of the Gévaudan
THE MAKI NG OF A BEAST
JAY M. SMITH
In a brilliant, original rendition, Monsters of the Gévaudan revisits a spellbinding French tale
that has captivated imaginations for over two hundred years, and offers the definitive explana-
tion of the strange events that underlie this timeless story.
In 1764 a peasant girl was killed and partially eaten while tending a flock of sheep. Even-
tually, over a hundred victims fell prey to a mysterious creature, or creatures, whose cunning
and deadly efficiency terrorized the region and mesmerized Europe. The fearsome aggressor
quickly took on mythic status, and the beast of the Gévaudan passed
into French folklore.
What species was this killer, why did it decapitate so many of
its victims, and why did it prefer the flesh of women and children?
Why did contemporaries assume that the beast was anything but a
wolf, or a pack of wolves, as authorities eventually claimed, and why
is the tale so often ignored in histories of the ancien régime? Jay
Smith finds the answer to these last two questions in an accident of
timing. The beast was bound to be perceived as strange and anom-
alous because its ravages coincided with the emergence of modernity
itself.
Expertly situated within the social, intellectual, cultural, and
political currents of French life in the 1760s, Monsters of the Gévaudan will engage a wide
range of readers with both its recasting of the beast narrative and its compelling insights into
the allure of the monstrous in historical memory.

The Tribal Imagination
CI VI LI ZATI ON AND THE SAVAGE MI ND
ROBIN FOX
We began as savages, and savagery has served us well—it got us where we are. But how do our
tribal impulses, still in place and in play, fit in the highly complex, civilized world we inhabit
today? This question, raised by thinkers from Freud to Lévi-Strauss, is fully explored in this
book by the acclaimed anthropologist Robin Fox. It takes up what he sees as the main—and
urgent—task of evolutionary science: not so much to explain
what we do, as to explain what we do at our peril.
Ranging from incest and arranged marriage to poetry
and myth to human rights and pop icons, Fox sets out to show
how a variety of human behaviors reveal traces of their tribal
roots, and how this evolutionary past limits our capacity for
action. Among the questions he raises: How real is our notion
of time? Is there a human “right” to vengeance? Are we dem-
ocratic by nature? Are cultural studies and fascism cousins
under the skin? Is evolutionary history coming to an end—or
just getting more interesting? In his famously informative and
entertaining fashion, drawing links from Volkswagens to Bartok
to Woody Guthrie, from Swinburne to Seinfeld, Fox traces our
ongoing struggle to maintain open societies in the face of pro-
foundly tribal human needs—needs which, paradoxically, hold
the key to our survival.

His Majesty’s Opponent
SUBHAS CHANDRA BOSE AND I NDI A’S STRUGGLE AGAI NST EMPI RE
SUGATA BOSE
The man whom Indian nationalists perceived as the “George Washington of India” and who was
President of the Indian National Congress in 1938–1939 is a legendary figure. Called Netaji
(“revered leader”) by his countrymen, Subhas Chandra Bose struggled all his life to liberate his
people from British rule and, in pursuit of that goal, raised and led the Indian National Army
against Allied forces during World War II. His patriotism, as Gandhi asserted, was second to
none, but his actions aroused controversy in India and condemnation in the West.
Now, in a definitive biography of the revered Indian
nationalist, Sugata Bose deftly explores a charismatic person-
ality whose public and private life encapsulated the contra-
dictions of world history in the first half of the twentieth
century. He brilliantly evokes Netaji’s formation in the intel-
lectual milieu of Calcutta and Cambridge, probes his thoughts
and relations during years of exile, and analyzes his ascent to
the peak of nationalist politics. Amid riveting accounts of
imprisonment and travels, we glimpse the profundity of his
struggle: to unite Hindu and Muslim, men and women, and
diverse linguistic groups within a single independent Indian
nation. Finally, an authoritative account of his untimely death
in a plane crash will put to rest rumors about the fate of this “deathless hero.”
This epic of a life larger than its legend is both intimate, based on family archives, and
global in significance. His Majesty’s Opponent establishes Bose among the giants of Indian and
world history.

Awakening Islam
RELI GI OUS DI SSENT I N CONTEMPORARY SAUDI ARABI A
STÉPHANE LACROIX
TRANSLATED BY GEORGE HOLOCH
“BASED ON INTIMATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MILITANTS, LACROIX’S PIONEERING
ANALYSIS OF THE HISTORY AND POLITICS OF SAUDI ISLAMISTS IS, AND WILL REMAIN,
A CLASSIC.”
—GILLES KEPEL, AUTHOR OF JIHAD AND
BEYOND TERROR AND MARTYRDOM
Amidst the roil of war and instability in the Middle East, we
in the West are still searching for ways to understand the
Islamic world. Stéphane Lacroix has now given us a pene-
trating look at the political dynamics of Saudi Arabia, one of
the most opaque of Muslim countries and the place that gave
birth to Osama bin Laden.
The result is a history that has never been told before.
Lacroix shows how thousands of Islamist militants from
Egypt, starting in the 1950s, escaped persecution and found
refuge in Saudi Arabia, where they were integrated into the
core of key state institutions and society. The transformative result was the Sahwa, or “Islamic
Awakening,” an indigenous social movement that blended political activism with local religious
ideas. Awakening Islam offers a pioneering analysis of how the movement became an essential
element of Saudi society, and why, in the late 1980s, it turned against the very state that had
nurtured it. Though the “Sahwa Insurrection” failed, it has bequeathed the world two very dif-
ferent, and very determined, heirs: the Islamo-liberals, who seek an Islamic state through con-
stitutional change, and the neo-jihadis, supporters of bin Laden, who promulgate violent
overthrow.
Awakening Islam is built upon seldom-seen documents in Arabic, numerous travels
through the country, and interviews with an unprecedented number of Saudi Islamists across
the ranks of today’s movement. The result affords unique insight into a closed culture and its
potent brand of Islam, which has been exported across the world and which remains danger-
ously misunderstood.

Prison Blossoms
ANARCHI ST VOI CES FROM THE AMERI CAN PAST
ALEXANDER BERKMAN, HENRY BAUER, AND CARL NOLD
EDI TED BY MI RI AM BRODY AND BONNI E BUET TNER
ALEXANDER BERKMAN DEFENDS ANARCHISM:
“IS IT LUNACY TO WISH TO MAKE THE WORLD BETTER?…IS IT UTOPIAN TO DESIRE
FREEDOM AND THE ENJOYMENT OF LIFE FOR EVERY HUMAN BEING? ARE SOCIALISTS
AND ANARCHISTS ENEMIES OF SOCIETY BECAUSE THEY THINK THE WORLD COULD BE
IMPROVED UPON AND EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD MADE FREE AND HAPPY? IF
THIS IS LUNACY AND A SIGN OF ENMITY TOWARDS SOCIETY, THEN ANARCHISTS ARE
INDEED CRIMINAL LUNATICS.”
In 1892, unrepentant anarchists Alexander Berkman, Henry
Bauer, and Carl Nold were sent to the Western Pennsylvania
State Penitentiary for the attempted assassination of steel
tycoon Henry Clay Frick. Searching for a way to continue
their radical politics and to proselytize among their fellow
inmates, these men circulated messages of hope and engage-
ment via primitive means and sympathetic prisoners. On odd
bits of paper, in German and in English, they shared their
thoughts and feelings in a handwritten clandestine magazine
called “Prison Blossoms.” This extraordinary series of essays
on anarchism and revolutionary deeds, of prison portraits and
narratives of homosexuality among inmates, and utopian poems and fables of a new world to
come not only exposed the brutal conditions in American prisons, where punishment cells and
starvation diets reigned, but expressed a continuing faith in the “beautiful ideal” of communal
anarchism.
Most of the “Prison Blossoms” were smuggled out of the penitentiary to fellow com-
rades, including Emma Goldman, as the nucleus of an exposé of prison conditions in America’s
Gilded Age. Those that survived relatively unrecognized for a century in an international archive
are here transcribed, translated, edited, and published for the first time. Born at a unique his-
torical moment, when European anarchism and American labor unrest converged, as each
sought to repel the excesses of monopoly capitalism, these prison blossoms peer into the heart
of political radicalism and its fervent hope of freedom from state and religious coercion.

Cairo
HI STORI ES OF A CI TY
NEZAR ALSAYYAD
From its earliest days as a royal settlement fronting the pyramids of Giza to its current mani-
festation as the largest metropolis in Africa, Cairo has forever captured the urban pulse of the
Middle East. In Cairo: Histories of a City, Nezar AlSayyad narrates the many Cairos that have
existed throughout time, offering a panoramic view of the city’s history unmatched in tempo-
ral and geographic scope, through an in-depth examination of
its architecture and urban form.
In twelve vignettes, accompanied by drawings, photo-
graphs, and maps, AlSayyad details the shifts in Cairo’s built envi-
ronment through stories of important figures who marked the
cityscape with their personal ambitions and their political ide-
ologies. The city is visually reconstructed and brought to life not
only as a physical fabric but also as a social and political order—
a city built within, upon, and over, resulting in a present-day
richly layered urban environment. Each chapter attempts to cap-
ture a defining moment in the life trajectory of a city loved for
all of its evocations and contradictions. Throughout, AlSayyad
illuminates not only the spaces that make up Cairo but also the
figures that shaped them, including its chroniclers, from
Herodotus to Mahfouz, who recorded the deeds of great and
ordinary Cairenes alike. He pays particular attention to how the
imperatives of Egypt’s various rulers and regimes—from the pharaohs to Sadat and beyond—
have inscribed themselves in the city that residents navigate today.

American Property
A HI STORY OF HOW, WHY, AND WHAT WE OWN
STUART BANNER
In America, we are eager to claim ownership: our homes, our ideas, our organs, even our own
celebrity. But beneath our nation’s proprietary longing looms a troublesome question: what does
it mean to own something? More simply: what is property?
The question is at the heart of many contemporary controversies, including disputes
over who owns everything from genetic material to indigenous culture to music and film on the
Internet. To decide if and when genes or culture or digits are a kind of property that can be pos-
sessed, we must grapple with the nature of property itself.
How does it originate? What purposes does it serve? Is it a
natural right or one created by law?
Accessible and mercifully free of legal jargon, Amer-
ican Property reveals the perpetual challenge of answering
these questions, as new forms of property have emerged in
response to technological and cultural change, and as ideas
about the appropriate scope of government regulation have
shifted. This first comprehensive history of property in the
United States is a masterly guided tour through a contested
human institution that touches all aspects of our lives and
desires.
Stuart Banner shows that property exists to serve a
broad set of purposes, constantly in flux, that render the
idea of property itself inconstant. Despite our ideals of own-
ership, property has always been a means toward other ends. What property signifies and what
property is, we come to see, has consistently changed to match the world we want to acquire.

Common Sense
A POLI TI CAL HI STORY
SOPHIA ROSENFELD
Common sense has always been a cornerstone of American politics. In 1776, Tom Paine’s vital
pamphlet with that title sparked the American Revolution. And today, common sense—the
wisdom of ordinary people, knowledge so self-evident that it is beyond debate—remains a pow-
erful political ideal, utilized alike by George W. Bush’s aw-shucks articulations and Barack
Obama’s down-to-earth reasonableness. But far from self-evi-
dent is where our faith in common sense comes from, and how
its populist logic has shaped modern democracy. Common
Sense: A Political History is the first book to explore this essen-
tial political phenomenon.
The story begins in the aftermath of England’s Glorious
Revolution, when common sense first became a political ideal
worth struggling over. Sophia Rosenfeld’s accessible and
insightful account then wends its way across two continents
and multiple centuries, revealing the remarkable individuals
who appropriated the old, seemingly universal idea of com-
mon sense and the new strategic uses they made of it. Paine
may have boasted that common sense is always on the side of
the people and opposed to the rule of kings, but Rosenfeld demonstrates that common sense has
been used to foster demagoguery and exclusivity as well as popular sovereignty. She provides
a new account of the transatlantic Enlightenment and the Age of Revolutions, and offers a fresh
reading on what the eighteenth century bequeathed to the political ferment of our own time.
Far from commonsensical, the history of common sense turns out to be rife with paradox and
surprise.

A Long Goodbye
THE SOVI ET WI THDRAWAL FROM AFGHANI STAN
ARTEMY KALINOVSKY
“AN ORIGINAL AND IMPORTANT BOOK THAT ADVANCES OUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE END
OF THE COLD WAR AND THE COLLAPSE OF THE USSR.”
—WILLIAM C. TAUBMAN, AUTHOR OF KHRUSHCHEV: THE MAN AND HIS ERA
The conflict in Afghanistan looms large in the collective consciousness of Americans. What has
the United States achieved, and how will it withdraw without sacrificing those gains? The
Soviet Union confronted these same questions in the 1980s, and Artemy Kalinovsky’s history
of the USSR’s nine-year struggle to extricate itself from
Afghanistan and bring its troops home provides a sobering per-
spective on exit options in the region.
What makes Kalinovsky’s intense account both timely
and important is its focus not on motives for initiating the con-
flict but on the factors that prevented the Soviet leadership
from ending a demoralizing war. Why did the USSR linger for
so long, given that key elites recognized the blunder of the mis-
sion shortly after the initial deployment?
Newly available archival material, supplemented by
interviews with major actors, allows Kalinovsky to reconstruct
the fierce debates among Soviet diplomats, KGB officials, the
Red Army, and top Politburo figures. The fear that withdrawal
would diminish the USSR’s status as leader of the Third World
is palpable in these disagreements, as are the competing inter-
ests of Afghan factions and the Soviet Union’s superpower rival in the West. This book challenges
many widely held views about the actual costs of the conflict to the Soviet leadership, and its
findings illuminate the Cold War context of a military engagement that went very wrong, for
much too long.

Palaces of Time
JEWI SH CALENDAR AND CULTURE I N EARLY MODERN EUROPE
ELISHEVA CARLEBACH
From one of the leading historians of the Jewish past comes a stunning look into a previously
unexamined dimension of Jewish life and culture: the calendar. In the late sixteenth century,
Pope Gregory XIII instituted a momentous reform of Western timekeeping, and with it a period
of great instability. Jews, like all minority cultures in Europe, had to realign their timekeeping
to accord with the new Christian calendar.
Elisheva Carlebach shows that the calendar is a complex and liv-
ing system, constantly modified as new preoccupations emerge and old
priorities fade. Calendars serve to structure time and activities and thus
become mirrors of experience. Through this seemingly mundane and
all-but-overlooked document, we can reimagine the quotidian world of
early modern Jewry, of market days and sacred days, of times to avoid
Christian gatherings and times to secure communal treasures. In cal-
endars, we see one of the central paradoxes of Jewish existence: the
need to encompass the culture of the other while retaining one’s own
unique culture. Carlebach reveals that Jews have always lived in mul-
tiple time scales, and demonstrates how their accounting for time, as
much as any cultural monument, has shaped Jewish life.
After a decade exploring
Judaica collections around the
world, Carlebach brings to light
these textually rich and beauti-
fully designed repositories of Jewish life. With color illus-
trations throughout, this is an evocative illumination of
how early modern Jewry marked the rhythms and reali-
ties of time and filled it with anxieties and achievements.

The Washington Haggadah
JOEL BEN SIMEON
I NTRODUCTI ONS BY DAVI D STERN AND KATRI N KOGMAN- APPEL
TRANSLATI ON BY DAVI D STERN
After the Bible, the Passover haggadah is the most widely read clas-
sic text in the Jewish tradition. More than four thousand editions
have been published since the late fifteenth century, but few are as
exquisite as the Washington Haggadah, which resides in the
Library of Congress. Now, in a stunning facsimile edition meticu-
lously reproduced in full color, this beautiful illuminated manu-
script comes to life for a new generation of readers.
Joel ben Simeon, the creator of this unusually well-pre-
served codex, was one of the most gifted and prolific scribe-
artists in the history of the Jewish book. David Stern’s
introduction reconstructs his professional biography and sit-
uates his masterwork within the historical development of
the haggadah, tracing the different forms this book (or clas-
sic Jewish text) took in the Jewish centers of Europe at the
dawn of modernity.
Katrin Kogman-Appel shows how ben Simeon,
more than just a copyist, was an active agent of cultural
exchange. As he traveled between Jewish communities on
both sides of the Alps, he brought elements of Ashkenazi haggadah illustration
to Italy and returned with stylistic devices acquired during his travels. In addition
to traditional Passover images, ben Simeon’s realistic illustrations of day-to-day
life provide a rare window into the world of late-fifteenth-century Europe.
This edition faithfully preserves the original text, with the Hebrew fac-
simile appearing in the original right-to-left orientation. It will be read and treas-
ured by anyone interested in Jewish history, medieval illuminated manuscripts,
and the history of the haggadah.

Field Notes on Science and Nature
EDITED BY MICHAEL CANFIELD
FOREWORD BY E. O. WI LSON
“THERE IS NO OTHER BOOK LIKE THIS—ONE THAT TAKES READERS OUT OF THE
LABORATORY AND INTO THE FIELD TO LEARN THE BASICS OF NATURAL HISTORY AND
THE FUN OF OBSERVING NATURE.”
—GEORGE SCHALLER
Once in a great while, as the New
York Times noted recently,
a naturalist writes a book
that changes the way peo-
ple look at the living world. John James
Audubon’s Birds of America, published in
1838, was one. Roger Tory Peterson’s 1934
Field Guide to the Birds was another. How does
such insight into nature develop?
Pioneering a new niche in the study of plants and
animals in their native habitat, Field Notes on Science and
Nature allows readers to peer over the shoulders and into the
notebooks of a dozen eminent field workers, to study firsthand their
observational methods, materials, and fleeting impressions.
What did George Schaller note when studying the lions of the Serengeti? What lists did
Kenn Kaufman keep during his 1973 “big year”? How does Piotr Naskrecki use relational data-
bases and electronic field notes? In what way is Bernd Heinrich’s approach “truly Thoreau-
vian,” in E. O. Wilson’s view? Recording observations in the field is an indispensable scientific
skill, but researchers are not generally willing to share their personal records with others. Here,
for the first time, are reproductions of actual pages from notebooks. And in essays abounding
with fascinating anecdotes, the authors reflect on the contexts in which the notes were taken.
Covering disciplines as diverse as ornithology, entomology, ecology, paleontology, anthro-
pology, botany, and animal behavior, Field Notes offers specific examples that professional
naturalists can emulate to fine-tune their own field methods, along with practical
advice that amateur naturalists and students can use to document their
adventures.

DI SPATCHES FROM AMERI CA’S ENDANGERED SPECI ES ACT
JOE ROMAN
“A BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN DESCRIPTION OF WHAT IS HAPPENING TO MANY OF OUR
ONLY KNOWN LIVING COMPANIONS IN THE UNIVERSE, TOLD AGAINST THE BACKGROUND
OF THE MUCH (IGNORANTLY) MALIGNED U.S. ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT. IT IS ALSO
A PLEA TO TAKE STEPS THAT WOULD HELP TO PRESERVE THREATENED ORGANISMS AND
US. A FASCINATING READ.”
—PAUL R. EHRLICH, CO-AUTHOR OF THE DOMINANT ANIMAL
The first listed species to make headlines after the Endan-
gered Species Act was passed in 1973 was the snail darter,
a three-inch fish that stood in the way of a massive dam on
the Little Tennessee River. When the Supreme Court sided
with the darter, Congress changed the rules. The dam was
built, the river stopped flowing, and the snail darter went
extinct on the Little Tennessee, though it survived in other
waterways. A young Al Gore voted for the dam; freshman
congressman Newt Gingrich voted for the fish.
A lot has changed since the 1970s, and Joe Roman
helps us understand why we should all be happy that this
sweeping law is alive and well today. More than a general
history of endangered species protection, Listed is a tale of
threatened species in the wild—from the whooping crane
and North Atlantic right whale to the purple bankclimber,
a freshwater mussel tangled up in a water war with Atlanta—and the people working to save
them.
Employing methods from the new field of ecological economics, Roman challenges the
widely held belief that protecting biodiversity is too costly. And with engaging directness, he
explains how preserving biodiversity can help economies and communities thrive. Above all,
he shows why the extinction of species matters to us personally—to our health and safety, our
prosperity, and our joy in nature.

Cricket Radio
TUNI NG I N THE NI GHT-SI NGI NG I NSECTS
JOHN HIMMELMAN
At a time when night-singing insects have slipped beyond our notice—indeed, are more likely
to be heard as NatureSounds than in a backyard—John Himmelman seeks to reconnect us to
creatures whose songs form a part of our own natural history.
On warm summer evenings, night-singing insects produce a whirring, chirping sound-
scape—a calming aural tapestry celebrated by poets and naturalists for millennia. But “cricket
radio” is not broadcast for the easy-listening pleasure of humans. The noctur-
nal songs of insects are lures
and warnings, full of
risks and rewards
for these tiny
compet i t i ve
performers. What
moves crickets
and katydids to sing, how they produce
their distinctive sounds, how they hear the songs of others,
and how they vary cadence, volume, and pitch to attract
potential mates, warn off competitors, and evade predators
is part of the engaging story Cricket Radio tells.
Himmelman’s narrative weaves together his personal
experiences as an amateur naturalist in search of crickets
and katydids with the stories of scientists who study these
insects professionally. He also offers instructions for bringing a few of the little singers into our
homes and gardens. We can, Himmelman suggests, be reawakened to these night songs that
have meant so much to the human psyche. The online insect calls that accompany this color-
fully illustrated narrative provide a bridge of sound to our past and to our vital connection with
other species.

Rising Force
THE MAGI C OF MAGNETI C LEVI TATI ON
JAMES D. LIVINGSTON
From Peter Pan to Harry Potter, from David Copperfield to levitating toys, there is magic in
conquering gravity. In this first-ever popular introduction to “maglev”— the use of magnetic
forces to overcome gravity and friction—James D. Livingston takes lay readers on a journey of
discovery, from basic concepts to today’s most thrilling applications.
The tour begins with examples of our historical fascination with levitation, both real
and fake. At the next stop, Livingston introduces readers to the components of maglev: gravi-
tational and magnetic forces in the universe, force fields, diamag-
netism and stabilization, superdiamagnetism and supercurrents,
maglev nanotechnology, and more. He explores the development
of the superconductors that are making large-scale levitation devices
possible, and the use of magnetic bearings in products ranging from
implanted blood pumps to wind turbines, integrated circuit fabri-
cation, and centrifuges to enrich uranium. In the last chapters, we
arrive at the science behind maglev trans-
portation systems, such as Chinese
trains that travel 250 miles per hour
without touching the tracks.
Packed with fascinating
anecdotes about the colorful per-
sonalities who have
“fought friction by fighting gravity,” the
book maintains accuracy throughout
while it entertains and informs tech-
nical and nontechnical readers
alike. With so many new applica-
tions for magnetic levitation on the
horizon, Rising Force is sure to retain
its own magic for years to come.

101 Quantum Questions
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE WORLD YOU CAN’T SEE
KENNETH W. FORD
Ken Ford’s mission is to help us understand the “great ideas” of quantum physics—ideas such
as wave-particle duality, the uncertainty principle, superposition, and conservation. These fun-
damental concepts provide the structure for 101 Quantum Questions, an authoritative yet
engaging book for the general reader in which every question and answer brings out one or more
basic features of the mysterious world of the quantum—
the physics of the very small.
Nuclear researcher and master teacher, Ford cov-
ers everything from quarks, quantum jumps, and what
causes stars to shine, to practical applications ranging
from lasers and superconductors to light-emitting diodes.
Ford’s lively answers are enriched by Paul Hewitt’s draw-
ings, numerous photos of physicists, and anecdotes,
many from Ford’s own experience. Organized for cover-
to-cover reading, 101 Quantum Questions also is great
for browsing.
Some books focus on a single subject such as the
standard model of particles, or string theory, or fusion
energy. This book touches all those topics and more,
showing us that disparate natural phenomena, as well
as a host of human inventions, can be understood in
terms of a few key ideas. Yet Ford does not give us simplistic explanations. He assumes a seri-
ous reader wanting to gain real understanding of the essentials of quantum physics.

Engineering Animals
HOW LI FE WORKS
MARK DENNY AND ALAN MCFADZEAN
The alarm calls of birds make them difficult for predators to locate, while the howl of wolves
and the croak of bullfrogs are designed to carry across long distances. From an engineer’s per-
spective, how do such specialized adaptations among living things really work? And how does
physics constrain evolution, channeling it in particular directions?
Writing with wit and a richly informed sense of wonder, Mark Denny and Alan
McFadzean offer an expert look at animals as works of engineering, each exquisitely adapted
to a specific manner of survival, whether that means spin-
ning webs or flying across continents or hunting in the
dark—or writing books. This particular book, containing
more than a hundred illustrations, conveys clearly, for engi-
neers and nonengineers alike, the physical principles under-
lying animal structure and behavior.
Pigeons, for instance—when understood as marvels
of engineering—are flying remote sensors: they have wide-
band acoustical receivers, hi-res optics, magnetic sensing,
and celestial navigation. Albatrosses expend little energy
while traveling across vast southern oceans, by exploiting
a technique known to glider pilots as dynamic soaring.
Among insects, one species of fly can locate the source of
a sound precisely, even though the fly itself is much smaller
than the wavelength of the sound it hears. And that big-
brained, upright Great Ape? Evolution has equipped us to
figure out an important fact about the natural world: that there is more to life than engineer-
ing, but no life at all without it.

Letters to a Young Poet
RAINER MARIA RILKE
TRANSLATED BY MARK HARMAN
PRAISE FOR MARK HARMAN’S TRANSLATION OF THE CASTLE:
“FOR THE GENERAL READER OR FOR THE STUDENT, IT WILL BE THE TRANSLATION OF
PREFERENCE FOR SOME TIME TO COME.”
—J.M. COETZEE, THE NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
In 1902, a nineteen-year-old aspiring poet named Franz Kappus
wrote to Rilke, then twenty-six, seeking advice on his poetry. Kap-
pus, a student at a military academy in Vienna similar to the one
Rilke had attended, was about to embark on a career as an officer,
for which he had little inclination. Touched by the innocence and
forthrightness of the student, Rilke responded to Kappus’s letter and
began an intermittent correspondence that would last until 1908.
Letters to a Young Poet collects the ten letters that Rilke
wrote to Kappus. A book often encountered in adolescence, it
speaks directly to the young. Rilke offers unguarded thoughts on
subjects such creativity, solitude, self-reliance, living with uncer-
tainty, the shallowness of irony, the uselessness of criticism, career
choices, sex, love, God, and art. Letters to a Young Poet is, finally,
a life manual. Art, Rilke tells the young poet in his final letter to
him, is only another way of living.
With the same artistry that marks his widely acclaimed trans-
lations of Kafka’s The Castle and Amerika: The Missing Person, Mark Harman captures the
lyrical and spiritual dimensions of Rilke’s prose. In his introduction, he provides biographical con-
texts for the reader and discusses the challenges of translating Rilke. This lovely hardcover edi-
tion makes a perfect gift for any young person starting out in life or for those interested in finding
a clear articulation of Rilke’s thoughts on life and art.

Machu Picchu
DAVID DREW
No other ruin evokes so powerfully the grandeur and mystery of a forgotten civilization as
Machu Picchu. Since its existence was first publicized in 1911 by the American explorer Hiram
Bingham, this World Heritage site has become the embodiment of a “lost city”—although nearly
half a million people find their way there every year. Until now, no survey of the site, history of
its archaeological exploration, and assessment of the city’s meaning have been brought together
in one authoritative and portable volume.
In the centenary of this enigmatic site’s “rediscovery,” David Drew offers an up-to-date
guide to the ruins, in all their complexity. His vivid account
includes the story of Hiram Bingham’s expeditions and a judicious
appraisal of their achievements and failings. He examines the lat-
est theories on the purpose and functioning of the city and the cir-
cumstances of its abandonment, and he explores the powerful
symbolic significance the site has acquired since its discovery for
different groups of people. Drew also looks dispassionately at how
the fabric of the city has fared over the last century and the dan-
gers to the region’s environment that its immense popularity now
presents. A final chapter covers the controversy over the future of
items removed by Bingham from Machu Picchu, which currently
reside in Yale University’s Peabody Museum.
Much more than a guidebook, Machu Picchu enables read-
ers to appreciate the magic and multiple meanings of perhaps the
most romantic ruin in the world.

Pacific Art in Detail
JENNIFER NEWELL
Pacific Art in Detail introduces the riches of Oceanic art through astonishing
close-up views of rarely seen treasures, allowing behind-the-scenes insight into
this vibrant work that no conventional gallery tour affords.
Carefully selected pieces from the world-renowned Oceanic
collection at the British Museum—by artists employing a wide
variety of materials and techniques—illustrate such major
themes as the role of artistic creation in land and ocean man-
agement, political and spiritual power, and connections to
gods and ancestors.
Jennifer Newell’s introduction addresses the question
“What is Pacific art?” while short texts
place each individual object into its
cultural context. Handsome photo-
graphs of each complete work are
displayed alongside these fine details,
to allow for intriguing comparisons
between seemingly unrelated
objects and media.
Evoking the hand
and eye of the most accom-
plished Pacific artists and
craft workers, past and
present, these details spur
the creative imagination and serve as an astute introduc-
tion to Oceanic collections in museums around the world.

Understanding Global Trade
ELHANAN HELPMAN
Global trade is of vital interest to citizens as well as policymakers, yet it is widely misunderstood.
This compact exposition of the market forces underlying international commerce addresses
both of these concerned groups, as well as the needs of students and scholars. Although it con-
tains no equations, it is almost mathematical in its elegance, precision, and power of expression.
Understanding Global Trade provides a thorough explanation of what shapes the inter-
national organization of production and distribution and the resulting trade flows. It reviews the
evolution of knowledge in this field from Adam Smith to today as a process of theoretical mod-
eling, accumulation of new empirical data, and then revi-
sion of analytical frameworks in response to evidence and
changing circumstances. It explains the sources of com-
parative advantage and how they lead countries to special-
ize in making products which they then sell to other
countries. While foreign trade contributes to the overall
welfare of a nation, it also creates winners and losers, and
Elhanan Helpman describes mechanisms through which
trade affects a country’s income distribution.
The book provides a clear and original account of
the revolutions in trade theory of the 1980s and the most
recent decade. It shows how scholars shifted the analysis of
trade flows from the sectoral level to the business-firm level,
to elucidate the growing roles of multinational corporations,
offshoring, and outsourcing in the international division of
labor. Helpman’s explanation of the latest research findings
is essential for an understanding of world affairs.

Deep Secrets
BOYS’ FRI ENDSHI PS AND THE CRI SI S OF CONNECTI ON
NIOBE WAY
“Boys are emotionally illiterate and don’t want intimate friendships.” In this empirically
grounded challenge to our stereotypes about boys and men, Niobe Way reveals the intense inti-
macy among teenage boys, especially during early and middle adolescence. Not only do boys
share their deepest secrets and feelings with their closest male friends, but they also claim that
without them they would go “wacko.” Yet as boys become
men, they become distrustful, lose these friendships, and
feel isolated and alone.
Drawing from hundreds of interviews conducted
throughout adolescence with black, Latino, white, and
Asian American boys, Deep Secrets reveals the ways in
which we have been telling ourselves a false story about
boys, friendships, and human nature. Boys’ descriptions of
their male friendships sound more like “something out of
Love Story than Lord of the Flies.” Yet in late adolescence,
boys feel they have to “man up” by becoming stoic and
independent. Vulnerable emotions and intimate friendships
are for girls and gay men. “No homo” becomes their
mantra.
These findings are alarming, given what we know about links between friendships and
health, and even longevity. Rather than a “boy crisis,” Way argues that boys are experiencing
a “crisis of connection” because they live in a culture where human needs and capacities are
given a sex (female) and a sexuality (gay), and thus discouraged for those who are neither. Way
argues that the solution lies with exposing the inaccuracies of our gender stereotypes and fos-
tering these critical relationships and fundamental human skills.

Constitutional Redemption
POLI TI CAL FAI TH I N AN UNJUST WORLD
JACK M. BALKIN
Political constitutions, hammered out by imperfect human beings in periods of intense political
controversy, are always compromises with injustice. What makes the U.S. Constitution legiti-
mate, argues this daring book, is Americans’ enduring faith that the Constitution’s promises
can someday be redeemed, and the constitutional system be made “a more perfect union.”
A leading constitutional theorist, Jack Balkin argues eloquently that the American con-
stitutional project is based in faith, hope, and a narrative of shared redemption. Our belief that
the Constitution will deliver us from evil shows in the sto-
ries we tell one another about where our country came
from and where it is headed, and in the way we use these
historical touchstones to justify our fervent (and opposed)
political creeds. Because Americans have believed in a story
of constitutional redemption, we have assumed the right
to decide for ourselves what the Constitution means, and
have worked to persuade others to set it on the right path.
As a result, constitutional principles have often shifted dra-
matically over time. They are, in fact, often political com-
promises in disguise.
What will such a Constitution become? We cannot
know. But our belief in the legitimacy of the Constitution
requires a leap of faith—a gamble on the ultimate vindica-
tion of a political project that has already survived many
follies and near-catastrophes, and whose destiny is still over the horizon.

Convicting the Innocent
WHERE CRI MI NAL PROSECUTI ONS GO WRONG
BRANDON L. GARRETT
On January 20, 1984, Earl Washington—defended for all of forty minutes by a lawyer who had
never tried a death penalty case—was found guilty of rape and murder in the state of Virginia
and sentenced to death. After nine years on death row, DNA testing cast doubt on his convic-
tion and saved his life. However, he spent another eight years in prison before more sophisti-
cated DNA technology proved his innocence and convicted
the guilty man.
DNA exonerations have shattered confidence in the
criminal justice system by exposing how often we have con-
victed the innocent and let the guilty walk free. In this unset-
tling in-depth analysis, Brandon Garrett examines what went
wrong in the cases of the first 250 wrongfully convicted peo-
ple to be exonerated by DNA testing.
Based on trial transcripts, Garrett’s investigation into
the causes of wrongful convictions reveals larger patterns of
incompetence, abuse, and error. Evidence corrupted by sug-
gestive eyewitness procedures, coercive interrogations,
unsound and unreliable forensics, shoddy investigative prac-
tices, cognitive bias, and poor lawyering illustrates the weaknesses built into our current crim-
inal justice system. Garrett proposes practical reforms that rely more on documented, recorded,
and audited evidence, and less on fallible human memory.
Very few crimes committed in the United States involve biological evidence that can be
tested using DNA. How many unjust convictions are there that we will never discover? Con-
victing the Innocent makes a powerful case for systemic reforms to improve the accuracy of all
criminal cases.

The Law of Life and Death
ELIZABETH PRICE FOLEY
Are you alive? What makes you so sure? Most people believe this question has a clear answer—
that some law defines our status as living (or not) for all purposes. But they are dead wrong. In
this pioneering study, Elizabeth Price Foley examines the many, and surprisingly ambiguous,
legal definitions of what counts as human life and death.
Foley reveals that “not being dead” is not necessarily the same as being alive, in the
eyes of the law. People, pre-viable fetuses, and post-viable fetuses have different sets of legal
rights, which explains the law’s seemingly inconsistent approach to stem cell research, in vitro
fertilization, frozen embryos, in utero embryos, contra-
ception, abortion, homicide, and wrongful death.
In a detailed analysis that is sure to be controver-
sial, Foley shows how the need for more organ trans-
plants and the need to conserve health care resources
are exerting steady pressure to expand the legal defini-
tion of death. As a result, death is being declared faster
than ever before. The “right to die,” Foley worries, may
be morphing slowly into an obligation to die.
Foley’s balanced, accessible chapters explore the
most contentious legal issues of our time—including
cryogenics, feticide, abortion, physician-assisted suicide,
brain death, vegetative and minimally conscious states, informed consent, and advance direc-
tives—across constitutional, contract, tort, property, and criminal law. Ultimately, she suggests,
the inconsistencies and ambiguities in U.S. laws governing life and death may be culturally, and
perhaps even psychologically, necessary for an enormous and diverse country like ours.

A Level Playing Field
AFRI CAN AMERI CAN ATHLETES AND THE REPUBLI C OF SPORTS
GERALD L. EARLY
“GERALD EARLY IS ONE OF THE GREAT CULTURAL CRITICS OF OUR TIME, AND A
COLLECTION LIKE THIS ONE IS LONG OVERDUE.”
—HUA HSU, VASSAR COLLEGE
As Americans, we believe there ought to be a level playing field for everyone. Even if we don’t
expect to finish first, we do expect a fair start. Only in sports
have African Americans actually found that elusive level ground.
But at the same time, black players offer an ironic perspective on
the athlete-hero, for they represent a group historically held to be
without social honor.
In his first new collection of sports essays since Tuxedo
Junction (1989), the noted cultural critic Gerald Early investi-
gates these contradictions as they play out in the sports world
and in our deeper attitudes toward the athletes we glorify. Early
addresses a half-century of heated cultural issues ranging from
integration to the use of performance-enhancing drugs. Writing
about Jackie Robinson and Curt Flood, he reconstructs pivotal
moments in their lives and explains how the culture, politics,
and economics of sport turned with them. Taking on the sub-
texts, racial and otherwise, of the controversy over remarks Rush
Limbaugh made about quarterback Donovan McNabb, Early restores the political consequence
to an event most commentators at the time approached with predictable bluster.
The essays in this book circle around two perennial questions: What other, invisible con-
tests unfold when we watch a sporting event? What desires and anxieties are encoded in our
worship of (or disdain for) high-performance athletes?
These essays are based on the Alain Locke Lectures delivered at Harvard University’s
W. E. B. Du Bois Institute.

The Politics of Imagining Asia
WANG HUI
EDI TED BY THEODORE HUTERS
In this bold, provocative collection, Wang Hui confronts some of the major issues concerning
modern China and the status quo of contemporary Chinese thought.
The book’s overarching theme is the possibility of an alternative modernity that does
not rely on imported conceptions of Chinese history and its legacy. Wang Hui argues that cur-
rent models, based largely on Western notions of empire and the nation-state, fail to account for
the richness and diversity of pre-modern Chinese historical practice. At the same time, he
refrains from offering an exclusively Chinese perspective or
from placing China in an intellectual ghetto. Navigating terrain
on regional language and politics, he draws on China’s unique
past to expose the inadequacies of European-born standards for
assessing modern China’s evolution. He takes issue particularly
with the way in which nation-state logic has dominated politi-
cally charged concerns like Chinese language standardization
and “The Tibetan Question.” His stance is critical—and often
controversial—but he locates hope in the kinds of complex,
multifaceted arrangements that defined China and much of Asia
for centuries.
The Politics of Imagining Asia challenges us not only to
re-examine our theories of “Asia” but to reconsider what
“Europe” means as well. As Theodore Huters writes in his intro-
duction, “Wang Hui’s concerns extend beyond China and Asia
to an ambition to rethink world history as a whole.”

Framing Muslims
STEREOTYPI NG AND REPRESENTATI ON AFTER 9/11
PETER MOREY AND AMINA YAQIN
Can Muslims ever fully be citizens of the West? Can the values of Islam ever be brought into
accord with the individual freedoms central to the civic identity of Western nations? Not if you
believe what you see on TV. Whether the bearded fanatic, the veiled, oppressed female, or the
shadowy terrorist plotting our destruction, crude stereotypes permeate public representations
of Muslims in the United States and western Europe. But these
“Muslims” are caricatures—distorted abstractions, wrought in the
most garish colors, that serve to reduce the diversity and complex-
ity of the Muslim world to a set of fixed objects suitable for sound
bites and not much else.
In Framing Muslims: Stereotyping and Representation after
9/11, Peter Morey and Amina Yaqin dissect the ways in which
stereotypes depicting Muslims as an inherently problematic pres-
ence in the West are constructed, deployed, and circulated in the
public imagination, producing an immense gulf between represen-
tation and a considerably more complex reality. Crucially, they show
that these stereotypes are not solely the province of crude-minded
demagogues and their tabloid megaphones, but multiply as well
from the lips of supposedly progressive elites, even those who pre-
sume to speak “from within,” on Muslims’ behalf. Based on nuanced analyses of cultural rep-
resentations in both the United States and the United Kingdom, the authors draw our attention
to a circulation of stereotypes about Muslims that sometimes globalizes local biases and, at other
times, brings national differences into sharper relief.

Love Poems, Letters, and
Remedies of Ovid
TRANSLATED BY DAVID R. SLAVITT
I NTRODUCTI ON BY MI CHAEL DI RDA
Widely praised for his recent translations of Boethius and Ariosto, David R. Slavitt returns to
Ovid, once again bringing to the contemporary ear the spirited, idiomatic, audacious charms of
this master poet.
The love described here is the anguished, ruinous kind, for which Ovid was among the
first to find expression. In the Amores, he testifies to the male experience, and in the compan-
ion Heroides—through a series of dramatic monologues
addressed to absent lovers—he imagines how love goes for
women. “You think she is ardent with you? So was she ardent
with him,” cries Oenone to Paris. Sappho, revisiting the forest
where she lay with Phaon, sighs, “The place / without your pres-
ence is just another place. / You were what made it magic.” The
Remedia Amoris sees love as a sickness and offers curative advice:
“The beginning is your best chance to resist”; “Try to avoid
onions, / imported or domestic. And arugula is bad. / Whatever
may incline your body to Venus / keep away from.” The voices
of men and women produce a volley of extravagant laments over
love’s inconstancy and confusions, as though elegance and vigor
of expression might compensate for heartache.
Though these love poems come to us across millennia, Slavitt’s translations, introduced
by Pulitzer Prize winner Michael Dirda, ensure that their sentiments have not faded with the
passage of time. They delight us with their wit, even as we weep a little in recognition.

The Lost Children
RECONSTRUCTI NG EUROPE’S FAMI LI ES AFTER WORLD WAR I I
TARA ZAHRA
During the Second World War, an unprecedented number of families were torn apart. As the
Nazi empire crumbled, millions roamed the continent in search of their loved ones. The Lost
Children tells the story of these families and of the struggle to determine their fate. We see how
the reconstruction of families quickly became synonymous with the survival of European civi-
lization itself.
Even as Allied officials and humanitarian organizations pro-
claimed a new era of individualist and internationalist values, Tara
Zahra demonstrates that they defined the “best interests” of chil-
dren in nationalist terms. Sovereign nations and families were seen
as the key to the psychological rehabilitation of traumatized indi-
viduals and the peace and stability of Europe.
Based on original research in German, French, Czech, Pol-
ish, and American archives, The Lost Children is a heartbreaking
and mesmerizing story. It brings together the histories of eastern
and western Europe, and traces the efforts of everyone—from Jew-
ish Holocaust survivors to German refugees, from Communist offi-
cials to American social workers—to rebuild the lives of displaced children. It reveals that many
seemingly timeless ideals of the family were actually conceived in the concentration camps,
orphanages, and refugee camps of the Second World War, and shows how the process of recon-
struction shaped Cold War ideologies and ideas about childhood and national identity. This riv-
eting tale of families destroyed by war reverberates in the lost children of today’s wars and in
the compelling issues of international adoption, human rights and humanitarianism, and refugee
policies.

Promise and Peril
AMERI CA AT THE DAWN OF A GLOBAL AGE
CHRISTOPHER MCKNIGHT NICHOLS
“A DEEPLY THOUGHTFUL STUDY ABOUT THE POWER OF IDEAS IN THE MAKING OF U.S.
FOREIGN POLICY.”
—MICHAEL KAZIN, AUTHOR OF
A GODLY HERO: THE LIFE OF WILLIAM JENNINGS BRYAN
Spreading democracy abroad or taking care of business at home is a tension as current as the
war in Afghanistan and as old as America itself. Tracing the history of isolationist and interna-
tionalist ideas from the 1890s through the 1930s, Christopher
McKnight Nichols reveals unexpected connections among indi-
viduals and groups from across the political spectrum who
developed new visions for America’s place in the world.
From Henry Cabot Lodge and William James to W. E. B.
Du Bois and Jane Addams to Randolph Bourne, William Borah,
and Emily Balch, Nichols shows how reformers, thinkers, and
politicians confronted the challenges of modern society—and
then grappled with urgent pressures to balance domestic pri-
orities and foreign commitments. Each articulated a distinct
strain of thought, and each was part of a sprawling national
debate over America’s global role. Through these individuals,
Nichols conducts us into the larger community as it strove to
reconcile America’s founding ideals and ideas about isolation with the realities of the nation’s
burgeoning affluence, rising global commerce, and new opportunities for worldwide cultural
exchange. The resulting interrelated set of isolationist and internationalist principles provided
the basis not just for many foreign policy arguments of the era but also for the vibrant as well
as negative connotations that isolationism still possesses.
Nichols offers a bold way of understanding the isolationist and internationalist impulses
that shaped the heated debates of the early twentieth century and that continue to influence
thinking about America in the world today.

Digital Cultures
MILAD DOUEIHI
In a world largely divided between giddy celebrants and dire detractors of digital culture, Milad
Doueihi is one of the very few who speak with broadly informed and measured authority about
what the rise of the digital means. Writing as a philologist and intellectual historian, Doueihi
argues that digital culture is or will be akin to religion in the scope of its influence and power,
and that because of its omnipresence it requires special analysis. Digital Cultures is the culmi-
nation of his deep and far-reaching attempts to meet this need.
Doueihi shows clearly how applying the notions of print cul-
ture to digital textuality distorts the logic and promise of the new
literacy. He then moves on to examine a number of inherent con-
tradictions or tensions in digital culture: between digital technology’s
capacity to create a public sphere and its use as an instrument of
control and censorship; between the possible collective and anony-
mous construction of knowledge in the Wikisphere and the dissem-
ination of errors. Throughout, he strives to give a balanced account
of digitization’s potential for both disruption and innovation.
Writing accessibly about the underlying technology, Doueihi
explores the multidimensional question of what it means to partici-
pate in online culture—from literacy and citizenship to texts, archiv-
ing, and storage. By bringing together topics explored separately
elsewhere—such as copyright, digital subjectivity, and social net-
works—Digital Cultures offers a rare, comprehensive view of the
emerging digital space.

Letters to Friends
Bartolomeo Fonzio
Edited by Alessandro Daneloni
Translated by Martin Davies
Bartolomeo Fonzio (1447–1513) was a leading literary figure in Florence
during the time of Lorenzo de’ Medici and Machiavelli. Aprofessor of poetry
and rhetoric at the University of Florence, he included
among his friends and colleagues leading figures such
as Marsilio Ficino, Angelo Poliziano, John Argy-
ropoulos, Cristoforo Landino, and Pietro Soderini. He
was one of the principal collaborators in creating the
famous humanist library of King Mattyas Corvinus of
Hungary. As a scholar and teacher, he devoted himself
to the study of classical authors, particularly Valerius
Flaccus, Livy, Persius, and Juvenal; his studies of Juve-
nal led to bitter polemics with Poliziano.
Fonzio’s letters, translated here for the first time into English, are a
window into the world of Renaissance humanism and classical scholarship,
and include the famous letter about the discovery in 1485 on the Via Appia
of the perfectly preserved body of a Roman girl.

Modern Poets
Lilio Gregorio Giraldi
Edited and translated by John Grant
Born in Ferrara, Lilio Gregorio Giraldi
(1479–1552) received an excellent classi-
cal education at the world-famous human-
ist schools of his native city. On his various
travels in search of a patron, he visited
Naples, frequenting the Academy there;
Mirandola, where he entered the service of
Gianfrancesco Pico; Milan, where he stud-
ied Greek under Demetrius Chalcondyles;
and Rome, where he enjoyed the munifi-
cence of Pope Leo X. Following the sack of Rome in 1527, Giraldi eventu-
ally made his way back to Ferrara, where he spent the last years of his life.
Giraldi was the author of many works on literary history, mythology,
and antiquities. Among the most famous are his dialogues, translated here
into English for the first time. Modeled on Cicero’s Brutus, the work dis-
cusses hundreds of contemporary neo-Latin and vernacular poets, giving a
panoramic view of European poetry in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth
century from Great Britain to Greece, but concentrating above all on Italy.

Genealogy of the
Pagan Gods
Volume 1: Books I–V
Giovanni Boccaccio
Edited and translated by Jon Solomon
Giovanni Boccaccio’s Genealogy of the Pagan Gods is
an ambitious work of humanistic scholarship
whose goal is to plunder ancient and medieval lit-
erary sources to create a massive synthesis of Greek
and Roman mythology. The work also contains a
famous defense of the value of studying ancient
pagan poetry in a Christian world.
The complete work in fifteen books contains a meticulously organ-
ized genealogical tree identifying approximately 950 Greco-Roman mytho-
logical figures. The scope is enormous: 723 chapters include over a thousand
citations from200 Greek, Roman, medieval, andTrecento authors. Through-
out, Boccaccio employs allegorical, historical, and philological critiques of
ancient myths and their iconography.
More than a mere compilation of pagan myths, the Genealogy incor-
porates hundreds of excerpts from and comments on ancient poetry, illus-
trative of a new spirit of philological and cultural inquiry emerging in the
early Renaissance. It is simultaneously the most ambitious work of literary
scholarship of the early Renaissance and a demonstration to contemporaries
of the moral and cultural value of studying ancient poetry. This is the first
of a projected three-volume set of Boccaccio’s complete Genealogy.

Dialectical Disputations
Volumes 1 and 2
Lorenzo Valla
Edited and translated by
Brian P. Copenhaver and Lodi Nauta
Lorenzo Valla (1407–1457) ranks among the greatest scholars and thinkers
of the Renaissance. He has secured lasting fame for his brilliant critical skills,
most famously displayed in his exposure of the“Donation of Constantine,”
the forged document upon which the papacy based its claims to political
power. Less well known in the English-speaking world is Valla’s work in the
philosophy of language—the basis of his reputation as the greatest philoso-
pher of the humanist movement.
The Dialectical Disputations, translated here for the first time into
any modern language, is his principal contribution to the philosophy of lan-
guage and logic. With this savage attack on the scholastic tradition of Aris-
totelian logic, Valla sought to replace that tradition with a new logic based
on the actual historical usage of classical Latin and on a commonsense
approach to semantics and argument. Valla’s goal was to provide a logic that
could be used by lawyers, preachers, statesmen, and others who needed to
succeed in public debate—one that was both stylistically correct and rhetor-
ically elegant, and thus could dispense with the technical language of the
scholastics, a “tribe of Peripatetics, perverters of natural meanings.” Valla’s
reformed dialectic became a milestone in the development of humanist logic
and contained startling anticipations of certain modern theories of seman-
tics and language.

The Vulgate Bible
vol ume I I N parts a and b
The Hi s tori cal Books
Douay-Rheims Translation
edited by
SWIFT EDGAR
This is the second volume, in two parts, of a projected five-
volume set of the complete Vulgate Bible.
Compiled and translated in large part by Saint Jerome
at the turn of the fifth century CE, the Vulgate Bible was used
fromthe early medieval period through the twentieth century
in the Western Christian (and later specifically Catholic) tra-
dition. It influenced literature, visual arts, music, and educa-
tion during the MiddleAges and Renaissance, and its contents
lay at the heart of Western theological, intellectual, artistic,
and even political history during that period. At the end of the
sixteenth century, as Protestant vernacular Bibles became
available, professors at a Catholic college first at Douay, then at Rheims, translated theVul-
gate Bible into English, primarily to combat the influence of rival theologies.
Volume II presents the Historical Books of the Bible,
which tell of Joshua’s leading the Israelites into the Promised Land,
the judges and kings, Israel’s steady departure fromGod’s precepts,
the Babylonian Captivity, and the return from exile. The focus
then shifts to shorter, intimate narratives: the pious Tobit,
whose son’s quest leads him to a cure for his father’s blindness;
Judith, whose courage and righteousness deliver the Israelites from
the Assyrians; and Esther and Mordecai, who saved all the Jews living in Ahasuerus from
execution. These three tales come frombooks that were canonical in the MiddleAges but
now are often called “apocryphal,” with the partial exception of the Book of Esther.

Old Testament Narratives
edited and translated by
DANIEL ANLEZARK
The Old English poems in this vol-
ume are among the first retellings of
scriptural texts in a European vernac-
ular. More than simple translations,
they recast the familiar plots in dar-
ingly imaginative ways, from Satan’s
seductive pride (anticipating Milton),
to a sympathetic yet tragic Eve, to
Moses as a headstrong Germanic war-
rior-king, to the lyrical nature poetry
inAzarias.
Whether or not the legendary Caedmon authored any of
the poems in this volume, they represent traditional verse in all its
vigor. Three of themsurvive as sequential epics in a manuscript in
the Bodleian Library at Oxford. The first, the Old English Gen-
esis, recounts biblical history from creation and the apocryphal
fall of the angels to the sacrifice of Isaac; Abrahamemerges as the
central figure struggling through exile toward a lasting covenant
with God. The second, Exodus, follows Moses as he leads the
Hebrew people out of Egyptian slavery and across the Red Sea.
BothAbrahamand Moses are transformed into martial heroes in
the Anglo-Saxon mold. The last in the triad, Daniel, tells of the
trials of the Jewish people in Babylonian exile up through Bel-
shazzar’s feast. Azarias, the final poem in this volume (found in
an Exeter Cathedral manuscript), relates the apocryphal episode
of the three youths in Nebuchadnezzar’s furnace.

The Rule of Saint Benedict
edited and translated by
BRUCE L. VENARDE
One of the most influential texts in the
Middle Ages, The Rule of Saint Benedict
offers guidance about both the spiritual
and organizational dimensions, from the
loftiest to the lowliest, of monastic life.
This new Latin-English edition has fea-
tures of interest for first-time readers of
the Rule as well as for scholars of medieval
history and language.
The Latin text is a transcription of
manuscript 914 of the Abbey of St. Gall
(Switzerland), an early ninth-century copy regarded as the version
that most closely reproduces Benedict’s style. The saint’s idiom
was informal, sometimes conversational, and heavily influenced
by the spoken Latin of the sixth century CE. In the Rule his voice
and thought processes come through in all their strength and
humanity. Readers will find background to the monastic life in
the notes. This volume also includes texts and translations of two
letters that explain the origins of the St. Gall version as well as an
index to all the translated materials.

Fragments of Old Comedy
Volumes I, II, III
Edited and translated by Ian C. Storey
The era of Old Comedy (c. 485 – c. 380 BCE), when theatrical comedy was created and established,
is best known through the extant plays of Aristophanes, but there were many other poets whose
comedies survive only in fragments. This new Loeb edition, the most exten-
sive selection of the fragments available in English, presents the
work of fifty-six poets, including Cratinus and Eupolis, the
other members (along with Aristophanes) of the canoni-
cal Old Comic triad.
For each poet and play there is an introduction,
brief notes, and select bibliography. Also included
is a selection of ancient testimonia to Old Com-
edy, nearly one hundred unattributed fragments
(both book and papyri), and descriptions of twenty-five vase-paintings illus-
trating Old Comic scenes. The texts are based on the monumental edition
of Kassel and Austin, updated to reflect the latest scholarship.

Polybius
Translated by W. R. Paton
Revised by F. W. Walbank and
Christian Habicht
The historian Polybius (ca. 200–118 BCE) was born into a
leading family of Megalopolis in the Peloponnese and
served in the Achaean League. From 168 to 151 he was held
hostage in Rome, where he became a friend of Lucius
Aemilius Paulus and his two sons, especially Scipio Aemil-
ianus, whose campaigns, including the destruction of
Carthage, he later attended. Late in his life, he served as a
mediator between Greece and the Romans before the final
war with Carthage; and after 146 he was entrusted by the
Romans with the details of administration in Greece.
Polybius’s overall theme is the spread of Roman power.
The main part of his history covers the years 264–146 BCE,
describing the rise of Rome, its destruction of Carthage, and
its eventual domination of the Greek world.
For this edition, W. R. Paton’s excellent translation,
first published in 1922, has been thoroughly revised, the
Büttner-Wobst Greek text corrected, and explanatory notes
and a new introduction added, all reflecting the latest schol-
arship.

Liberal Arts at the Brink
VICTOR E. FERRALL, JR.
Liberal arts colleges represent a tiny portion of the higher education market—no more than 2
percent of enrollees. Yet they produce a stunningly large percentage of America’s leaders in vir-
tually every field of endeavor. The educational experience they offer—small classes led by pro-
fessors devoted to teaching and mentoring, in a community dedicated to learning—has been a
uniquely American higher education ideal.
Liberal Arts at the Brink is a wake-up call for everyone who values liberal arts education.
A former college president trained in law and economics, Victor Ferrall shows how a spiraling
demand for career-related education has pressured liberal arts colleges to become vocational, dis-
torting their mission and core values. The relentless com-
petition among them to attract the “best” students has
driven down tuition revenues while driving up operating
expenses to levels the colleges cannot cover. The weak-
est are being forced to sell out to vocational for-profit uni-
versities or close their doors. The handful of wealthy elite
colleges risk becoming mere dispensers of employment
and professional school credentials. The rest face the
prospect of moving away from liberal arts and toward
vocational education in order to survive.
Writing in a personable, witty style, Ferrall tackles the host of threats and challenges lib-
eral arts colleges now confront. Despite these daunting realities, he makes a spirited case for the
unique benefits of the education they offer—to students and the nation. He urges liberal arts
colleges to stop going it alone and instead band together to promote their mission and ensure
their future.

Thinking with Whitehead
ISABELLE STENGERS
TRANSLATED BY MI CHAEL CHASE
WI TH A PREFACE BY BRUNO LATOUR
Alfred North Whitehead has never gone out of print, but for a
time he was decidedly out of fashion in the English-speaking
world. In a splendid work that serves as both introduction and
erudite commentary, Isabelle Stengers—one of today’s leading
philosophers of science—goes straight to the beating heart of
Whitehead’s thought. The product of thirty years’ engagement
with the mathematician-philosopher’s entire canon, this volume
establishes Whitehead as a daring thinker on par with Gilles
Deleuze, Felix Guattari, and Michel Foucault.
Reading the texts in broadly chronological order while
highlighting major works, Stengers deftly unpacks Whitehead’s
often complicated language, explaining the seismic shifts in his
thinking and showing how he called into question all that
philosophers had considered settled after Descartes and Kant.
She demonstrates that the implications of Whitehead’s philo-
sophical theories and specialized knowledge of the various sci-
ences come yoked with his innovative, revisionist take on
God. Whitehead’s God exists within a specific epistemological
realm created by a radically complex and often highly mathe-
matical language.
“To think with Whitehead today,” Stengers writes,
“means to sign on in advance to an adventure that will leave
none of the terms we normally use as they were.”

Developmental Fairy Tales
EVOLUTI ONARY THI NKI NG AND
MODERN CHI NESE CULTURE
ANDREW F. JONES
In 1992 Deng Xiaoping famously declared,
“Development is the only hard imperative.”
The spirit of development has since become
the prevailing creed of the People’s Republic,
ushering in the transformation of China from
a socialist state to a capitalist market economy.
In Developmental Fairy Tales, Andrew
Jones asserts that the groundwork for this
recent transformation was laid in the late
nineteenth century, with the translation of the
evolutionary works of Lamarck, Darwin, and
Spencer into Chinese letters. He traces the
ways that the evolutionary narrative itself
evolved into a form of vernacular knowledge,
dissolving boundaries between beast and man and recasting
childhood development as a recapitulation of China’s civiliza-
tional ascent into the modern world-system.
This narrative left an indelible imprint on China’s litera-
ture and popular media, from children’s primers to print culture,
from fairy tales to filmmaking. Jones offers an innovative and
interdisciplinary angle of vision on China’s cultural evolution.
He focuses especially on China’s foremost modern writer and
public intellectual, Lu Xun, in whose work the fierce contra-
dictions of his generation’s developmentalist aspirations became
the stuff of pedagogical parable. Developmental Fairy Tales
revises our understanding of literature’s role in the making of
modern China, by revising our understanding of developmen-
talism’s role in modern Chinese literature.

Giotto and His Publics
THREE PARADI GMS OF PATRONAGE
JULIAN GARDNER
This probing analysis of three works by Giotto and the patrons who
commissioned them goes far beyond the clichés of Giotto as the
founding figure of Western painting. It traces the interactions
between Franciscan friars and powerful bankers,
illuminating the complex interplay between
mercantile wealth and the iconography of
poverty.
Giotto’s commissions are best under-
stood against the background of political strife
and religious faction that lacerated fourteenth-
century Italy. Julian Gardner examines this
important period of Giotto’s career through
works created for Franciscan churches: Stigma-
tization of Saint Francis (San Francesco, Pisa),
the Bardi Chapel’s Life of St. Francis (Santa
Croce, Florence), and the frescoes of the cross-
ing vault above the tomb of Saint Francis in the
Lower Church of San Francesco at Assisi. Giotto crafted these
murals during a period when internal conflict divided Franciscans
as they confronted radical changes of papal policy toward their
defining vow of poverty. The Order’s great wealth and ostentatious
churches had alienated many Franciscans and incurred the hostil-
ity of other Orders. References to St. Peter, Florentine politics, and
church architecture were included in Giotto’s paintings to satisfy
patrons, redefine the figure of Francis, and celebrate the dominant
group within the Franciscan brotherhood.

Essays on Anscombe’s Intention
EDITED BY ANTON FORD, JENNIFER HORNSBY, AND
FREDERICK STOUTLAND
G. E. M. Anscombe’s Intention firmly established the philosophy of
action as a distinctive field of inquiry. Donald Davidson called this
97-page book “the most important treatment of action since Aris-
totle.” But until quite recently, few scholars recognized the magni-
tude of Anscombe’s philosophical achievement. This collection of
ten essays elucidates some of the more challenging aspects of
Anscombe’s work and affirms her reputation as one of our most
original philosophers.
Born in 1919, Anscombe studied at St. Hugh’s College,
Oxford, where she later held a research fellowship. A close friend
of Wittgenstein, she joined Oxford’s Somerville College in 1946,
where she spent over two decades before being appointed to the
Chair of Philosophy at Cambridge. She died in 2001 after her long
career as a highly regarded analytic philosopher.
This volume brings together the work of some of today’s
leading philosophers of action. It will enlighten Anscombe’s readers
who struggle with concepts they find puzzling or obscure, while
providing a bracing corrective to doubts about Intention’s signifi-
cance.

Slow Violence and the
Environmentalism of the Poor
ROB NIXON
The violence wrought by cli-
mate change, toxic drift, defor-
estation, oil spills, and the
environmental aftermath of
war takes place gradually and
often invisibly. Using the inno-
vative concept of “slow vio-
lence” to describe these
threats, Rob Nixon focuses on
the inattention we have paid to
the attritional lethality of many
environmental crises, in contrast with the sensational, spectacle-
driven messaging that impels public activism today. Slow violence,
because it is so readily ignored by a hard-charging capitalism, exac-
erbates the vulnerability of ecosystems and of people who are poor,
disempowered, and often involuntarily displaced, while fueling
social conflicts that arise from desperation as life-sustaining condi-
tions erode.
In a book of extraordinary scope, Nixon examines a cluster
of writer-activists affiliated with the environmentalism of the poor
in the global South. By approaching environmental justice literature
from this transnational perspective, he exposes the limitations of
the national and local frames that dominate environmental writing.
And by skillfully illuminating the strategies these writer-activists
deploy to give dramatic visibility to environmental emergencies,
Nixon invites his readers to engage with some of the most pressing
challenges of our time.

Richard Bentley
POETRY AND ENLI GHTENMENT
KRISTINE LOUISE HAUGEN
What warranted the vicious skewering of classical scholar Richard
Bentley by two of the literary giants of his day, Jonathan Swift and
Alexander Pope? The answer: his temerity in bringing classical
study out of the scholar’s closet
and into the drawing rooms of
polite society. Kristine Haugen’s
highly engaging biography of a
man whom Rhodri Lewis charac-
terized as “perhaps the most
notable—and notorious—scholar
ever to have English as a mother
tongue” affords a fascinating por-
trait of Bentley and the intellec-
tual turmoil he set in motion.
Aiming at a convergence
between scholarship and literary culture, the brilliant, caustic, and
imperious Bentley brought the work of professional scholars to a
wider audience. At the same time, he adapted his own publications
to address his readers’ lack of expertise. Abandoning the church-
oriented historical study of his peers, he worked on texts that inter-
ested the broader public, with spectacular and—in the case of his
interventionist edition of Paradise Lost—sometimes lamentable
results.
If the union of worlds Bentley craved was not to be achieved
in his lifetime, his provocations show that professional humanism
left a deep imprint on the literary world of England’s Enlightenment.

The Matter of Capital
POETRY AND CRI SI S I N THE AMERI CAN CENTURY
CHRISTOPHER NEALON
In this reexamination of North American poetry in English from
Ezra Pound to the present day, Christopher Nealon demonstrates
that the most vital writing of the period is deeply concerned with
capitalism. Moreover, capitalism’s problematic effect on individuals,
communities, and cultures is central not just to leftist poets but to
those spanning a range of political and aesthetic orientations.
Indeed, Nealon asserts that capitalism is the material out of which
poetry in English has been created over the last century.
Poets as diverse as Jack Spicer, John Ashbery, and Claudia
Rankine have taken as their “matter” the dynamics and impact of
capitalism—not least its tendency to generate economic and polit-
ical turmoil. Nealon argues persuasively that poets’ attention to the
matter of capital has created a corresponding notion of poetry as a
kind of textual matter, capable of dispersal, retrieval, and disguise in
times of crisis. Offering fresh readings of canonical poets from W. H.
Auden to Adrienne Rich, as well as interpretations of younger writ-
ers like Kevin Davies, The Matter of Capital reorients our under-
standing of the central poetic project of the last century.

Collected Works of
Ralph Waldo Emerson
VOLUME I X • POEMS: A VARI ORUM EDI TI ON
HI STORI CAL I NTRODUCTI ON, TEXTUAL
I NTRODUCTI ON, AND POEM HEADNOTES BY
ALBERT J. VON FRANK; TEXT ESTABLI SHED BY
ALBERT J. VON FRANK AND THOMAS WORTHAM
At his death in 1882, Ralph Waldo Emerson was counted among
the greatest poets in nineteenth-century America. This variorum
edition of all the poems Emerson chose for publication during his
lifetime offers readers the opportunity to situate Emerson’s poetic
achievement alongside his celebrated essays and to consider their
interrelationship.
Though his reputation as essayist now eclipses his reputa-
tion as poet, Emerson self-identified as a writer of verse and worked
out his transcendental philosophy in this genre, establishing his
belief in the authority of individual experience and in the essential
metaphoric nature of language. Albert J. von Frank’s historical intro-
duction traces the development of Emerson the poet, considering
how life events, as well as his reading of German philosophy and
Sufi poetry, influenced his
thought and expression.
The textual introduc-
tion and apparatus make trans-
parent the theoretical and
practical concerns that inform
these critical texts. Also
included are chronological
lists of variants and texts con-
stituting the historical colla-
tion, notes clarifying obscure
allusions, and headnotes iden-
tifying sources and context.

Sinners on Trial
J E WS AND SACRI LEGE AF TER THE REF ORMATI ON
MAGDA TETER
In post-Reformation Poland, home to the largest Jew-
ish population in the world, the Catholic Church suf-
fered profound anxiety about its power, and
consequently criminal law became a key tool in the
effort to legitimize Church authority and manipulate
the meaning of the sacred. In this chilling history,
Magda Teter shows how the mishandling of sacred
symbols was transformed from a sin that could be
absolved into a crime that resulted in sentences of
mutilation, hanging, decapitation, and burning at the
stake.
Teter focuses especially on the infamous accu-
sation against Jews for desecrating the eucharistic
wafer and offers a fresh interpretation. She demon-
strates that host desecration—defined in the law as
sacrilege—went beyond anti-Jewish hatred to reflect
Catholic-Protestant conflict, changing conditions of
ecclesiastic authority and jurisdiction, and competi-
tion in the economic marketplace.
This is the first book to consider accusations of sacrilege during the early modern period
within the context of politics and common crime. Teter draws on previously unexamined trial
records and accounts of torture and punishment to bring out the real-life relationships among
Catholics, Jews, and Protestants and to challenge the commonly held view that, following the
Reformation, Poland was a country without religious persecution.

The Ukrainian West
CULTURE AND THE FATE OF EMPI RE I N SOVI ET LVI V
WILLIAM JAY RISCH
In 1990, months before crowds in Moscow and other major cities
dismantled their monuments to Lenin, residents of the western
Ukrainian city of Lviv toppled theirs. William Jay Risch argues that
Soviet politics of empire inadvertently shaped this anti-Soviet city,
and that opposition from the periphery as much as from the impe-
rial center was instrumental in unraveling the Soviet Union.
Lviv’s borderlands identity was defined by
complicated relationships with its Polish neighbor,
its imperial Soviet occupier, and the real and imag-
ined West. The city’s intellectuals strained the lim-
its of censorship in order to achieve greater public
use of Ukrainian language and literary expression,
and challenged state-sanctioned histories with their
collective memory of the recent past.
The Ukrainian West enriches our under-
standing not only of the Soviet Union’s postwar
evolution but also of the role urban spaces, cosmo-
politan identities, and border regions play in the
development of nations and empires. It also calls
into question many of our assumptions about the
regional divisions that have characterized Ukrain-
ian politics. Risch shines a bright light on the polit-
ical, social, and cultural history that turned this
once peripheral city into a Soviet window on the
West.

THE NATURE OF TECHNOLOGY AND THE REMAKI NG OF THE RHÔNE
SARA B. PRITCHARD
Because of its location, volume,
speed, and propensity for severe
flooding, the Rhône, France’s
most powerful river, has long
influenced the economy, poli-
tics, and transportation net-
works of Europe. Humans have
tried to control the Rhône for
over two thousand years, but
large-scale development did not
occur until the twentieth cen-
tury. The Rhône valley has
undergone especially dramatic
changes since World War II.
Hydroelectric plants, nuclear reactors, and industrialized agricul-
ture radically altered the river, as they simultaneously fueled both
the physical and symbolic reconstruction of France.
In Confluence, Sara B. Pritchard traces the Rhône’s remak-
ing since 1945. She interweaves this story with an analysis of how
state officials, technical elites, and citizens connected the environ-
ment and technology to political identities and state-building. In the
process, Pritchard illuminates the relationship between nature and
nation in France.
Pritchard’s innovative integration of science and technology
studies, environmental history, and the political history of modern
France makes a powerful case for envirotechnical analysis: an
approach that highlights the material and rhetorical links between
ecological and technological systems. As Pritchard shows, recon-
structing the Rhône remade France itself.

The Park Chung Hee Era
THE TRANSF ORMATI ON OF SOUTH KOREA
EDITED BY BYUNG-KOOK KIM AND EZRA F. VOGEL
In 1959 South Korea was
mired in poverty. By 1979 it
was a powerful democracy of
considerable political, eco-
nomic, and cultural influence.
The great breakthrough came
during the years of Park
Chung Hee’s presidency. Park
seized power in a coup in
1961 and ruled as a virtual
dictator until his assassination
in October 1979. He is cred-
ited with modernizing South
Korea, but at a huge political
and social cost.
South Korea’s political landscape under Park defies easy cat-
egorization. The state was predatory yet technocratic, reform-
minded yet quick to crack down on dissidents in the name of
political order. The nation was balanced uneasily between opposi-
tion forces calling for democratic reforms and the Park government’s
obsession with economic growth.
This landmark volume examines South Korea’s era of devel-
opment as a study in the complex politics of modernization. Draw-
ing on an extraordinary range of sources in both English and
Korean, these essays recover and contextualize many of the ambi-
guities in South Korea’s trajectory from poverty to a sustainable high
rate of economic growth.

Changing Homelands
HI NDU POLI TI CS AND THE PARTI TI ON OF I NDI A
NEETI NAIR
Changing Homelands offers a startling new perspective on what
was and was not politically possible in late colonial India. In this
account of the partition in the Punjab, Neeti Nair rejects the idea
that essential differences between the Hindu and Muslim commu-
nities made political settlement impossible. Far from being an
inevitable solution, the idea of partition was a very late, stunning
surprise to the majority of Hindus in the region.
Tracing the political and social history of the Punjab from
the early years of the twentieth century, Nair overturns the
entrenched view that Muslims
were responsible for partition.
Some powerful Punjabi Hindus
also preferred partition and con-
tributed to its adoption. Almost no
one, however, foresaw the deaths
and devastation that would follow
in its wake.
Though much has been
written on the politics of the Mus-
lim and Sikh communities in the
Punjab, Nair is the first historian to
focus on the Hindu minority. She
engages with politics in post-parti-
tion India by drawing from oral histories that reveal the complex
relationship between memory and history—a relationship that con-
tinues to inform politics between India and Pakistan.

Pacific Cosmopolitans
A CULTURAL HI STORY OF U. S–J APAN RELATI ONS
MICHAEL R. AUSLIN
Decades before Americans cheered on Ichiro Suzuki, Japanese base-
ball fans swooned over Babe Ruth. And a century prior to the craze
for anime and manga, American
art collectors hoarded Japanese
woodblock prints. Few relation-
ships can match the depth of the
cultural ties between America
and Japan over the past two hun-
dred years. In Pacific Cos-
mopolitans, Michael Auslin tells
this absorbing history in full for
the first time.
From the early 1800s on,
cultural encounter formed the
bedrock of U.S.–Japan ties.
Casual connections turned into
formal cultural exchange within
the emerging global society of
the late nineteenth century. As both countries became great pow-
ers, new cultural institutions supplemented political ties and helped
promote economic trade, shaping the Pacific world yet ultimately
becoming entangled in controversy.
In the decades since World War II, U.S.–Japan cultural
exchange has again been seen as a crucial means to strengthen the
bonds between the two nations. Acolytes of exchange continue to
believe that cross-cultural understanding will promote a more peace-
ful future, even in the face of competing national interests.

Crossing Borders
MI GRATI ON AND CI TI ZENSHI P I N
THE T WENTI ETH- CENTURY UNI TED STATES
DOROTHEE SCHNEIDER
Aspiring immigrants to the United
States make many separate border
crossings in their quest to become
Americans—in their home towns,
ports of departure, U.S. border sta-
tions, and in American neighbor-
hoods, courthouses, and schools.
Dorothee Schneider covers both the
immigrants’ experience of their pas-
sage from an old society to a new one
and American policymakers’ debates
over admission to the United States
and citizenship. Bringing together the separate histories of Irish,
English, German, Italian, Jewish, Chinese, Japanese, and Mexican
immigrants, she unveils a fresh view of immigrant aspirations and
government responses.
Ingenuity and courage emerge repeatedly from these stories,
as immigrants adapted their resources to make migration and citi-
zenship successful on their own terms. While officials argued over
immigrants’ fitness for admission and citizenship, immigrant com-
munities forced the government to alter the meaning of race, class,
and gender as criteria for admission.
Schneider aims to relate the immigrant experience as a total-
ity across many borders. By including immigrant voices as well as
U.S. policies and laws, she provides a truly transnational history that
offers valuable perspectives on current debates over immigration.

Histories of Computing
MICHAEL SEAN MAHONEY
EDI TED AND WI TH AN I NTRODUCTI ON BY
THOMAS HAI GH
Computer technology is pervasive, embedded in a myriad of phys-
ical systems and disciplinary ways of thinking. The late Michael
Sean Mahoney was a pioneer scholar of the history of computing,
one of the first established historians of science to take seriously the
challenges and opportunities posed by information technology to
our understanding of the twentieth century.
Mahoney’s work ranged widely, from logic and the theory of
computation to the development of software and applications as
craft-work. But it was always informed by a unique perspective,
derived from his work on the history of medieval mathematics and
experimental practice during the Scientific Revolution, that bridged
the gaps between academic historians and computer scientists.
Indeed, he came to believe that the field was irreducibly pluralis-
tic—there could be only histories of computing.
In this collection, Thomas Haigh presents thirteen of
Mahoney’s essays and papers organized across three categories: his-
toriography, software engineering, and theoretical computer sci-
ence. Haigh surveys Mahoney’s work, tracing the development of
key themes, illuminating connections among different areas of his
research, and contextualizing his contributions. The result is a land-
mark book.

When Wall Street Met
Main Street
THE QUEST F OR AN I NVESTOR’ S DEMOCRACY
JULIA C. OTT
The financial crisis that began in 2008
made Americans keenly aware of the enor-
mous impact Wall Street has on the eco-
nomic well-being of the nation and its
citizenry. How did financial markets and
institutions—commonly perceived as mar-
ginal and elitist at the beginning of the
twentieth century—come to be seen as the
bedrock of American capitalism? How did
stock investment—once considered dis-
reputable and dangerous—become a mass
practice?
Julia Ott tells the story of how,
between the rise of giant industries and the
Crash of 1929, the federal government,
corporations, and financial institutions
campaigned to universalize investment
and provide individuals with a stake in the
economy and the nation. As they established a broad, national mar-
ket for stocks and bonds, they debated the distribution of economic
power, the proper role of government, and the meaning of citizen-
ship under modern capitalism.
By 1929, stock ownership engulfed one-quarter of Ameri-
can households in the looming financial disaster. Accordingly, the
federal government assumed responsibility for protecting citizen-
investors by regulating the securities markets. In recovering the for-
gotten history of this initial phase of mass investment and its
surrounding issues, Ott enriches and enlightens contemporary
debates over economic reform.

No Closure
CATHOLI C PRACTI CE AND BOSTON’ S PARI SH SHUTDOWNS
JOHN C. SEITZ
In 2004 the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston announced
plans to close or merge more than eighty parish churches. By the
archdiocese’s count, 28,000 Catholics would be affected. The clo-
sures came just two years after the first major revelations of clergy
sexual abuse and the cover up. Wounds from this profound betrayal
of trust had not healed.
In the months that followed, distraught parishioners occu-
pied several churches in opposition to the closure decrees. Why did
these accidental activists resist the parish closures? What do their
actions and reactions tell us about modern American Catholicism?
Drawing on extensive fieldwork and with careful attention to
Boston’s history, Seitz tells the stories of resisting Catholics as they
reflect on their parishes and the sacred objects and personal mem-
ories they hold and on the structures of authority in the Catholic
Church.
Resisters describe how they took their parishes and religious
lives into their own hands, and how they struggled with everyday
theological questions of respect and memory; with relationships
among religion, community, place, and comfort; and with the mean-
ing of the local church. No Closure maps a path of inquiry on how
tradition and change shape Catholics’ ability to make sense of their
lives in a secular world.

Adams Family Correspondence
VOLUME 10, J ANUARY 1794–J UNE 1795
EDITED BY MARGARET A. HOGAN,
C. JAMES TAYLOR, SARA MARTIN,
HOBSON WOODWARD, SARA B. SIKES, GREGG L.
LINT, AND SARA GEORGINI
This volume offers over 300 letters from the irrepressible Adamses,
including many between John and Abigail never before printed. As
always, Adams family members serve as important commentators
on national and international events, from America’s growing exter-
nal tensions to its internal struggles with increasingly virulent polit-
ical factionalism and the Whiskey Rebellion. John, languishing as
vice president, reported extensively on congressional debates and
growing divisions within the Washington administration but also
found time to improve his sons’ legal education. Abigail’s letters jux-
tapose her own political insights with lively accounts of her farm
management and the day-to-day happenings in Quincy.
The most significant event of the period for the Adams clan
was John Quincy’s appointment as U.S. minister resident at The
Hague. Accompanying him overseas was his brother Thomas Boyl-
ston. Arriving just as the French army began its final march into the
Netherlands, John Quincy and Thomas Boylston became first-hand
observers of the impact of the French Revolution on the broader
society. Back in the United States, Charles continued to build his
legal career, while Nabby’s family grew with the birth of the
Adamses’ first granddaughter, Caroline Amelia Smith.

Reasoning from Race
F EMI NI SM, LAW, AND THE CI VI L RI GHTS RE VOLUTI ON
SERENA MAYERI
Informed in 1944 that she was “not of the sex” entitled to be admitted to Harvard Law School,
African American activist Pauli Murray confronted “Jane Crow” injustice. In the 1960s and
1970s, Murray’s pioneering analogies between sex and race discrimination became potent
weapons in the battle for women’s rights as feminists borrowed rhetoric and legal arguments
from the civil rights movement. Serena Mayeri’s Reasoning from Race is the first book to explore
the development and consequences of this key feminist strategy.
Mayeri uncovers the history of an often misunderstood connection at the heart of Amer-
ican antidiscrimination law. Her study details how a tumultuous political and legal climate trans-
formed the links between race and sex equality, civil rights, and feminism. Battles over
employment discrimination, school segregation, reproductive freedom, affirmative action, and
constitutional change reveal the promise and peril of reasoning from race—and offer a vivid pic-
ture of Murray, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and others who defined feminists’ agenda.
Looking beyond Supreme Court opinions to the deliberations of feminist advocates, their
opponents, and the legal decisionmakers who heard—or chose not to hear—their claims, May-
eri showcases struggles that continue to shape the meaning of equality under the law.

Eurolegalism
THE TRANSF ORMATI ON OF LAW AND REGULATI ON
I N THE EUROPEAN UNI ON
R. DANIEL KELEMEN
Despite western Europe’s traditional disdain for America’s “adver-
sarial legalism,” the European Union is shifting toward a similar
approach to the law, according to R. Daniel Kelemen. Coining the
term “eurolegalism” to describe the hybrid now developing, he
shows how the political and organizational realities of the EU make
this shift inevitable.
The model of regulatory law that long predominated in west-
ern Europe was more informal and cooperative than its American
counterpart. It relied less on lawyers, courts, and private enforce-
ment, and more on opaque networks of bureaucrats and other inter-
ests to develop and implement regulatory policies. Europe chose
flexible, informal means of regulating, and counted on the courts to
challenge decisions only rarely. Regulation through litigation—cen-
tral to the U.S. model—was largely absent in Europe.
But that changed with the advent of the European Union.
Kelemen argues that the EU’s fragmented institutional structure and
its prioritizing of market integration have generated political incen-
tives and functional pressures that cause policymakers to enact
detailed, transparent, judicially enforceable rules—often framed as
“rights”—and back them with public enforcement litigation,
enhancing opportunities for private litigation.

Justifying Intellectual Property
ROBERT P. MERGES
In this wide-ranging and ambi-
tious analysis, Robert P. Merges
establishes a sophisticated ration-
ale for the most vital form of
modern property: IP rights. His
insightful new book answers the
many critics who contend that
these rights are inefficient,
unfair, and theoretically incoher-
ent. But Merges’s vigorous
defense of IP is also a call for
appropriate legal constraints and
boundaries: IP rights are real,
but they come with real limits.
Drawing on Kant, Locke, and Rawls as well as contempo-
rary scholars, Merges crafts an original theory to explain why IP
rights make sense as a reward for effort and as a way to encourage
individuals to strive. He also provides a novel explanation of why
awarding IP rights to creative people is fair for everyone else in soci-
ety, by contributing to a just distribution of resources. Merges argues
convincingly that IP rights are based on a solid ethical foundation,
and—when subject to fair limits—these rights are an indispensable
part of a well-functioning society.

“SCIENCE-MART IS TIMELY AND IMPORTANT IN A SENSE THAT GOES BEYOND A
SPECIALIST CONTRIBUTION. MIROWSKI’S WIDE-RANGING RESEARCH ADDRESSES A
DAZZLING ARRAY OF TOPICS, WHICH HE SITUATES HISTORICALLY AND FUSES INTO A
COMPELLING CRITIQUE THAT WILL FASCINATE ANY READER CONCERNED WITH THE
ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DIMENSIONS OF MODERN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY.”
—THEODORE M. PORTER, UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES
Science-Mart trenchantly analyzes the rise and decline in the quality and character of science
in America since World War II.
During the Cold War, the U.S. government amply funded basic research in science and
medicine. Starting in the 1980s, however, support began to decline and for-profit corporations
became the largest funders of research. Philip Mirowski argues that a powerful neoliberal ide-
ology promoted a radically different view of knowledge and discovery: the fruits of scientific
investigation are not a public good that should be freely available to all, but monetized com-
modities.
Consequently, patent and intellectual property laws were strengthened, universities
demanded patents on the discoveries of their faculty, information sharing among researchers was
impeded, and the line between universities and corporations began to blur. Corporations shed
their in-house research laboratories, instead contracting with independent firms both within
the United States and abroad. Among such firms were AT&T and IBM, whose outstanding
research laboratories had produced Nobel Prize–winning work in chemistry and physics, rang-
ing from the transistor to superconductivity.
Science-Mart offers a learned, provocative critique of interest to anyone concerned that
American science—once the envy of the world—must be more than just another way to make
money.

Kids Don’t Want to Fail
OPPOSI TI ONAL CULTURE AND THE BLACK- WHI TE
ACHI E VEMENT GAP
ANGEL L. HARRIS
Understanding the causes of the racial
achievement gap in American education—
and then addressing it with effective pro-
grams—is one of the most urgent problems
communities and educators face.
The most popular explanation for
the achievement gap has been the “oppo-
sitional culture theory”: black students
underperform in secondary schools
because their culture devalues learning and
sees academic effort as “acting white.”
Despite lack of evidence for this belief,
teachers accept it, with predictable self-ful-
filling results. In a careful quantitative
assessment of the oppositional culture hypothesis, Angel L. Harris
tests its empirical implications systematically, analyzing data from
both American and British schools. From every angle, the opposi-
tional culture theory fell flat.
Despite achieving less in school, black students value school-
ing more than their white counterparts. They perform badly not
because they don’t want to succeed but because they enter without
the necessary skills. Harris finds that the gap starts in preadoles-
cence—when cumulating socioeconomic and health disadvantages
inhibit development and when black students start to feel the
impact of lowered teacher expectations. Kids Don’t Want to Fail is
must-reading for teachers, policymakers, and anyone interested in
the intersection of race and education.

Before and Beyond Divergence
THE POLITICS OF ECONOMIC CHANGE IN CHINA AND EUROPE
JEAN-LAURENT ROSENTHAL AND R. BIN WONG
China has reemerged as a powerhouse in the global economy, reviv-
ing a classic question in economic history: why did sustained eco-
nomic growth arise in Europe rather than in China?
Many favor cultural and environmental explanations for the
nineteenth-century economic divergence between Europe and the
rest of the world. This book, the product of over twenty years of
research, takes a sharply different tack. It argues that political dif-
ferences which crystallized well before 1800 were responsible both
for China’s early and more recent prosperity and for Europe’s diffi-
culties after the fall of the Roman Empire and during early indus-
trialization.
Jean-Laurent Rosenthal and R. Bin Wong show that relative
prices matter to how economies evolve; institutions can have a large
effect on relative prices; and the spatial scale of polities can affect the
choices of institutions in the long run. Their historical perspective
on institutional change has surprising implications for understand-
ing modern transformations in China and Europe and for future
expectations. It also yields insights in comparative economic his-
tory, essential to any larger social science account of modern world
history.

Environmental Health
F OURTH EDI TI ON
DADE W. MOELLER
Dramatic changes in the field of environmental
health since the Third Edition was published
in 2004 demand a new, radically updated ver-
sion of this essential textbook.
Based on the recommendations of
advisory bodies and federal agency regulations,
as well as a thorough review of the scientific
literature, Dade Moeller’s Fourth Edition is the
only fully current text in this burgeoning field.
It features new tables and figures, and revisions
of those retained from previous editions. Envi-
ronmental Health is also enriched with the
knowledge and insights of professionals who
are deeply involved in “real world” aspects of each subject covered.
In eighteen chapters, students receive a complete but man-
ageable introduction to the complex nature of the environment,
how humans interact with it, and the mutual impact between peo-
ple and the environments where they work or live. This new edi-
tion emphasizes the challenges students will face in the field: the
local and global implications of environmental health initiatives,
their short- and long-range effects, their importance to both devel-
oping and developed nations, and the roles individuals can play in
helping to resolve these problems.
Whether discussing toxicology, injury prevention, risk assess-
ment, and ionizing and non-ionizing radiation, or more traditional
subjects like the management and control of air, water, and food,
Dade Moeller emphasizes the need for a systems approach to ana-
lyzing new projects prior to their construction and operation.
Environmental Health is indispensable reading for practi-
tioners, students, and anyone considering a career in public health.

Clio in the Italian Garden
T WENT Y- F I RST–CENTURY STUDI ES I N HI STORI CAL METHODS
AND THEORETI CAL PERSPECTI VES
EDITED BY MIRKA BENEŠ AND MICHAEL G. LEE
Italian gardens have received
more attention from historians
than perhaps any other garden
tradition. This volume presents
eight richly illustrated essays by
established and emerging schol-
ars that suggest striking new
directions for future research.
Mirka Beneš and Raf-
faella Fabiani Giannetto examine
the long historical development
and disciplinary diversity of Ital-
ian garden studies. Marcello Fagiolo and Vincenzo Cazzato advance
a new theory of villa systems that enlarges the geographical frame
of the field. Mauro Ambrosoli highlights the contributions of anony-
mous laborers and gardeners in the creation of the countryside,
while Lionella Scazzosi shows how this broader view of agency
informs decisions by policymakers regarding the restoration and
maintenance of historical gardens. Antonella Pietrogrande and
Denis Ribouillault offer new interpretations of some of the most
famous Renaissance sites through analyses of cultural imagination
and modes of perception.
This volume exemplifies the broad transformations, both
quantitative and methodological, taking place in the study and prac-
tice of garden design, and offers a reflective meditation on the vital-
ity of one of the oldest branches of garden and landscape history.

Charlemagne’s Survey of

WEALTH, PERSONNEL, AND BUI LDI NGS OF A
MEDI TERRANEAN CHURCH BET WEEN ANTI QUI T Y
AND THE MI DDLE AGES
MICHAEL MCCORMICK
In Charlemagne’s Survey of the Holy Land,
Michael McCormick rehabilitates and rein-
terprets one of the most neglected and
extraordinary sources from Charlemagne’s
revival of the Roman Empire: the report of a
fact-finding mission to the Christian church
of the Holy Land. The roll of documents
translated and edited in this volume pre-
serves the most detailed statistical portrait
before the Domesday Book of the finances,
monuments (including exact dimensions),
and female and male personnel of any major
Christian church.
Setting these documents in the con-
text of economic trends, archaeological evidence, and a compari-
son of Holy Land churches and monasteries with their
contemporaries west and east, this study shows that the Palestinian
church was living in decline as its old financial links with Byzantium
slackened. In recounting Charlemagne’s move to outflank the
Byzantine emperor, McCormick constructs a microhistory of the
Frankish king’s ambitions and formidable organizational talents for
running an empire.
Supplementing McCormick’s major synthesis, The Origins
of the European Economy, this volume will be indispensable read-
ing for anyone interested in medieval rulership and economics, and
in the history of the Holy Land, its Christian communities, and its
late antique monuments.

In 2009, to mark the sixtieth anniversary of
the People’s Republic of China, the Fairbank
Center for Chinese Studies convened a major
conference to discuss the health and
longevity of China’s ruling system and to con-
sider a fundamental question: after three
decades of internal strife and turmoil, fol-
lowed by an era of reform, entrepreneurial-
ism, and internationalization, is the PRC here
for the dynastic long haul?
Bringing together scholars and stu-
dents of China from around the world, the
gathering witnessed an energetic exchange of views on four inter-
related themes: polities, social transformations, wealth and well-
being, and culture, belief, and practice. Edited and expanded from
the original conference papers, the wide-ranging essays in this bilin-
gual volume remain true to the conference’s aim: to promote open
discussion of the past, present, and future of the People’s Republic
of China.

Mao’s Invisible Hand
THE POLI TI CAL F OUNDATI ONS OF ADAPTI VE
GOVERNANCE I N CHI NA
EDITED BY SEBASTIAN HEILMANN AND
ELIZABETH J. PERRY
Observers have been predicting the
demise of China’s political system
since Mao Zedong’s death over
thirty years ago. The Chinese Com-
munist state, however, seems to
have become increasingly adept at
responding to challenges ranging
from leadership succession and pop-
ular unrest to administrative reor-
ganization, legal institutionalization,
and global economic integration.
What political techniques and procedures have Chinese policy-
makers employed to manage the unsettling impact of the fastest sus-
tained economic expansion in world history?
As the authors of these essays demonstrate, China’s politi-
cal system allows for more diverse and flexible input than would be
predicted from its formal structures. Many contemporary methods
of governance have their roots in techniques of policy generation
and implementation dating to the revolution and early PRC—tech-
niques that emphasize continual experimentation. China’s long rev-
olution had given rise to this guerrilla-style decisionmaking as a way
of dealing creatively with pervasive uncertainty. Thus, even in a
post-revolutionary PRC, the invisible hand of Chairman Mao plays
an important role in China’s adaptive governance.

Picturing Heaven in Early China
LILLIAN LAN-YING TSENG
Tian, or Heaven, had multiple
meanings in early China. It had
been used since the Western Zhou
to indicate both the sky and the
highest god, and later came to be
regarded as a force driving the
movement of the cosmos and as a
home to deities and imaginary ani-
mals. By the Han dynasty, which
saw an outpouring of visual mate-
rials depicting Heaven, the con-
cept of Heaven encompassed an
immortal realm to which humans
could ascend after death.
Using excavated materials, Lillian Tseng shows how Han
artisans transformed various notions of Heaven—as the mandate,
the fantasy, and the sky—into pictorial entities. The Han Heaven
was not indicated by what the artisans looked at, but rather was
suggested by what they looked into. Artisans attained the visibility
of Heaven by appropriating and modifying related knowledge of cos-
mology, mythology, and astronomy. Thus the depiction of Heaven
in Han China reflected an interface of image and knowledge.
By examining Heaven as depicted in ritual buildings, on
household utensils, and in the embellishments of funerary settings,
Tseng maintains that visibility can hold up a mirror to visuality;
Heaven was culturally constructed and should be culturally recon-
structed.

Realms of Literacy
EARLY J APAN AND THE HI STORY OF WRI TI NG
DAVID B. LURIE
In the world history of writing, Japan presents an unusually detailed
record of transition to literacy. Extant materials attest to the social,
cultural, and political contexts and consequences of the advent of
writing and reading, from the earliest appearance of imported arti-
facts with Chinese inscriptions in the first century BCE, through the
production of texts within the Japanese archipelago in the fifth cen-
tury, to the widespread literacies and the simultaneous rise of a full-
fledged state in the late seventh and eighth centuries.
David B. Lurie explores the complex
processes of adaptation and invention that
defined the early Japanese transition from
orality to textuality. Drawing on archaeo-
logical and archival sources varying in con-
tent, style, and medium, this book highlights
the diverse modes and uses of writing that
coexisted in a variety of configurations
among different social groups. It offers new
perspectives on the pragmatic contexts and
varied natures of multiple simultaneous lit-
eracies, the relations between languages and
systems of inscription, and the aesthetic
dimensions of writing. Lurie’s investigation
into the textual practices of early Japan illuminates not only the cul-
tural history of East Asia but also the broader comparative history of
writing and literacy in the ancient world.

Coins, Trade, and the State
ECONOMI C GROWTH I N EARLY MEDI E VAL J APAN
ETHAN ISAAC SEGAL
Framed by the decline of the Heian aristocracy in the late 1100s
and the rise of the Tokugawa shogunate in the early 1600s, Japan’s
medieval era was a chaotic period of diffuse political power and fre-
quent military strife. This instability pre-
vented central authorities from regulating
trade, issuing currency, enforcing con-
tracts, or guaranteeing property rights. But
the lack of a strong central government
did not inhibit economic growth. Rather,
it created opportunities for a wider spec-
trum of society to participate in trade,
markets, and monetization.
Peripheral elites—including mer-
chants, warriors, rural estate managers,
and religious leaders—devised new ways
to circumvent older forms of exchange by
importing Chinese currency, trading in
local markets, and building an effective system of long-distance
money remittance. Over time, the central government recognized
the futility of trying to stifle these developments, and by the six-
teenth century it asserted greater control over monetary matters
throughout the realm.
Drawing upon diaries, tax ledgers, temple records, and gov-
ernment decrees, Ethan Isaac Segal chronicles how the circulation
of copper currency and the expansion of trade led to the start of a
market-centered economy and laid the groundwork for Japan’s
transformation into an early modern society.

The Japanization of Modernity
MURAKAMI HARUKI BET WEEN J APAN AND
THE UNI TED STATES
REBECCA SUTER
Murakami Haruki is perhaps the
best known and most widely
translated Japanese author of his
generation. Despite Murakami’s
critical and commercial success,
particularly in the United States,
his role as a mediator between
Japanese and American literature
and culture is seldom discussed.
Bringing a comparative
perspective to the study of Murakami’s fiction, Rebecca Suter com-
plicates our understanding of the author’s oeuvre and highlights his
contributions not only as a popular writer but also as a cultural critic
on both sides of the Pacific. Suter concentrates on Murakami’s short
stories—less known in the West but equally worthy of critical atten-
tion—as sites of some of the author’s bolder experiments in manip-
ulating literary (and everyday) language, honing cross-cultural
allusions, and crafting metafictional techniques. This study scruti-
nizes Murakami’s fictional worlds and their extraliterary contexts
through a range of discursive lenses: modernity and postmodernity,
universalism and particularism, imperialism and nationalism, Ori-
entalism and globalization.
By casting new light on the style and substance of
Murakami’s prose, Suter situates the author and his works within
the sphere of contemporary Japanese literature and finds him a
prominent place within the broader sweep of the global literary
scene.

Tradition, Treaties, and Trade
QI NG I MPERI ALI SM AND CHOSŎN KOREA, 1850–1910
KIRK W. LARSEN
Relations between the Choson
and Qing states are often cited as
the prime example of the opera-
tion of the “traditional” Chinese
“tribute system.” In contrast, this
work contends that the motiva-
tions, tactics, and successes (and
failures) of the late Qing Empire in
Choson Korea mirrored those of
other nineteenth-century imperi-
alists. Between 1850 and 1910,
the Qing attempted to defend its
informal empire in Korea by inter-
vening directly, not only to preserve its geopolitical position but also
to promote its commercial interests. And it utilized the technology
of empire—treaties, international law, the telegraph, steamships,
and gunboats.
Although the transformation of Qing-Choson diplomacy was
based on modern imperialism, this work argues that it is more accu-
rate to describe the dramatic shift in relations in terms of flexible
adaptation by one of the world’s major empires in response to new
challenges. Moreover, the new modes of Qing imperialism were a
hybrid of East Asian and Western mechanisms and institutions.
Through these means, the Qing Empire played a fundamental role
in Korea’s integration into regional and global political and economic
systems.

HISTORY
Shredding the Tapestry
of Meaning
THE POETRY AND POETI CS OF KI TASONO KATUE ( 1902–1978)
JOHN SOLT
Kitasono Katue was a leading avant-garde
literary figure, first in Japan and then
throughout the world, from the 1920s to
the 1970s. In his long career, Kitasono
was instrumental in creating Japanese-
language work influenced by futurism,
dadaism, and surrealism before World War
II and in contributing a Japanese voice to
the international avant-garde movement
after the war. This critical biography of
Kitasono examines the life, poetry, and
poetics of this controversial and flamboy-
ant figure, including his wartime support
of the Japanese state. Using Kitasono as a window on Japanese lit-
erature in the twentieth century, John Solt analyzes the relation-
ship of Japanese writers to foreign literary movements and the
influence of Japanese writers on world literature.

Homer’s Versicolored Fabric
THE E VOCATI VE POWER OF ANCI ENT GREEK
EPI C WORDMAKI NG
ANNA BONIFAZI
Anna Bonifazi suggests that the Homeric text we have now would
have enabled ancient audiences to enjoy the evocative power of
even minimal linguistic elements. The
multiple functions served by these ele-
ments are associated not only with the
variety of narrative contexts in which
they occur but also with overarching
poetic strategies.
The findings relate to two strate-
gies in particular: unfolding the narra-
tive by signaling the upcoming content
with au- adverbs and particles, and let-
ting the complexity of Odysseus’s iden-
tity resonate through the ambiguous
use of third-person pronouns. The
words’ evocative power springs from
the deliberate merging of distinct mean-
ings, which prompts multifaceted interpretations. The text allows
the incorporation of different viewpoints, just as an iridescent fab-
ric allows the simultaneous perception of different colors.

This book—the first full-length
study of the “last and most
beautiful” apology against
paganism, Theodoret’s Thera-
peutic for Hellenic Maladies—
combines close readings of the
text with detailed analysis of
Theodoret’s arguments against
Greek religion, philosophy, and
culture and the ways in which
that Greek influence interacts
with other diverse ideas, prac-
tices, and developments in the
fifth-century Roman Empire.
The book’s larger underlying themes—the continuing debate
between Christianity and Hellenism, and the relationship between
classical and Christian literature—offer insights into more general
late Roman and early Byzantine religious and cultural attitudes and
issues, including the relations between pagan and Christian paideia,
the cult of the martyrs, and the role of Christianity in the Roman
Empire.

The Rhetoric of Biography
NARRATI NG LI VES I N PERSI ANATE SOCI ETI ES
EDITED BY L. MARLOW
In the context of a growing scholarly literature devoted to the top-
ics of biography and autobiography, especially in the Arabic literary
tradition, the essays in this volume explore the forms and meanings
of these genres with particular reference to Persian writings, as well
as to writings in Arabic and Turkish that were also composed in Per-
sianate societies.
The authors address, among other topics, biographies and
autobiographies of women; biogra-
phies of specific occupational groups,
such as poets; the relation of tradi-
tional “lives of poets” to the reception
of their literary works; intertextuality
across biographical and autobio-
graphical writings and across lan-
guages; and the processes involved in
translating written biographies for the
contemporary television screen.
Readers are invited to glimpse
the lives of figures from the past and
to appreciate the historical, cultural,
and literary contexts that shaped their
biographical and autobiographical narratives, and to reflect on the
continuing significance of these narratives into the modern era.

Lydian Architecture
ASHLAR MASONRY STRUCTURES AT SARDI S
CHRISTOPHER RATTÉ
From the sixth to the fourth
century BC, the western Anato-
lian region of Lydia was home
to a distinctive local tradition of
ashlar masonry construction.
The earliest datable example of
fine stone masonry in the envi-
rons of Sardis, the capital of the
Lydian empire, is the tomb of
King Alyattes, who died in ca.
560 BC Contemporary monu-
ments include a city gate and
monumental terraces. Alyattes’ son Croesus was overthrown by the
Persians in 547 BC, but the Lydian building tradition survived in
chamber tombs at Sardis and throughout Lydia.
This richly illustrated volume examines the monuments of
Sardis and environs in the context of contemporary developments
in Lydia and throughout the ancient Mediterranean and Near East.
The study of Lydian architecture illuminates traditions of Anatolian
kingship, technological exchange between Lydia and Greece and
the Near East, and the origins of Persian imperial architecture.

The Paterik of the Kievan
Caves Monastery
TRANSLATED AND WITH AN
INTRODUCTION BY MURIEL HEPPELL
The Kievan Caves Monastery was for centuries
the most important Ukrainian monastic estab-
lishment. It was the outstanding center of literary production, and
its monks served throughout the territory of Rus’ as bishops and
monastic superiors. The most detailed source for the monastery’s
early history was its Paterik, a thirteenth-century compilation con-
taining stories reaching back to
the monastery’s foundation in
the mid-eleventh century.
Muriel Heppell makes available
the first complete English trans-
lation of the Paterik. With an
introduction, a glossary of
terms, and several appendices,
Heppell discusses the work’s
Byzantine background and also
sets it in the historical context
of Medieval Rus’.

Rhetoric of
Kievan Rus’
TRANSLATED AND WITH AN
INTRODUCTION BY
SIMON FRANKLIN
The authors included in this volume, Ilarion, Klim Smoljatic, and
Kirill of Turov, are remarkable for both their personal and literary
achievements. Appointed in 1051 by Prince Jaroslav the Wise, Ilar-
ion was the first of only two recorded “native” metropolitans of
Kiev. His Sermon on Law and Grace
constitutes the finest piece of eleventh-
century Rus’ rhetorical literature. Klim
Smoljatic, the second “native” metro-
politan of Rus’ (from 1147), is the
author of the controversial Epistle to
Foma, which addresses the debate
over the proper nature and limits of
Christian learning. Finally, the twelfth-
century monk Kirill of Turov is best
known for his collection of allegorical
lessons and some of the most accom-
plished sermons of Kievan Rus’.
The volume contains the first
complete translations of the Epistle to Foma and the lessons and
sermons of Kirill, as well as an entirely new rendering of the Sermon
on Law and Grace. Simon Franklin prefaces the texts with a sub-
stantial introduction that places each of the three authors in their
historical context and examines the literary qualities as well as tex-
tual complexities of these outstanding works of Rus’ literature.

Litigating Health Rights
CAN COURTS BRI NG MORE J USTI CE TO HEALTH?
EDITED BY ALICIA ELY YAMIN AND SIRI GLOPPEN
The last fifteen years have seen a
tremendous growth in the number
of health rights cases focusing on
issues such as access to health
services and essential medications.
This volume examines the poten-
tial of litigation as a strategy to
advance the right to health by
holding governments accountable
for these obligations. It includes
case studies from Costa Rica,
South Africa, India, Brazil,
Argentina, and Colombia, as well
as chapters that address cross-cut-
ting themes.
The authors analyze what types of services and interventions
have been the subject of successful litigation and what remedies
have been ordered by courts. Different chapters address the sys-
temic impact of health litigation efforts, taking into account who
benefits both directly and indirectly—and what the overall impacts
on health equity are.

The Revolution in Venezuela
SOCI AL AND POLI TI CAL CHANGE UNDER CHÁVEZ
EDITED BY JONATHAN EASTWOOD AND
THOMAS PONNIAH
Is Venezuela’s Bolivarian revolution under Hugo Chávez truly rev-
olutionary? Most books and articles tend to view the Chávez gov-
ernment in an either-or fashion. Some see the president as the
shining knight of twenty-first–century socialism, while others see
him as an avenging Stalinist strongman. Despite passion on both
sides, the Chávez government does not fall easily into a seamless
fable of emancipatory or authoritarian history, as these essays make
clear.
A range of distinguished authors consider the nature of social
change in contemporary Venezuela and explore a number of themes
that help elucidate the sources of the nation’s political polarization.
The chapters range from Fernando Coronil’s “Bolivarian Revolu-
tion,” which examines the relationship between the state’s social
body (its population) and its natural body (its oil reserves), to an
insightful look at women’s rights by Cathy A. Rakowski and Gio-
conda Espina. This volume shows that, while the future of the
national process is unclear, the principles elaborated by the Chávez
government are helping articulate a new Latin American left.

A New Statesman Top Ten Book of the Decade
Social justice: an ideal forever beyond our grasp or one of many practical possibilities? More than
a matter of intellectual discourse, the idea of justice influences how—and how well—people
live. In this book Amartya Sen offers a powerful critique of the mainstream theories of justice
that, despite their many specific achievements, have taken us, he argues, in the wrong direc-
tion.
“IN THIS INTRICATE, ENDLESSLY THOUGHT-PROVOKING BOOK, SEN BRINGS THE FULL FORCE OF
HIS FORMIDABLE MIND AND HIS MORAL SENSE TO SHOW HOW SPECIFIC QUESTIONS—OF
CHRONIC MALNOURISHMENT, ILL-HEALTH, DEMOGRAPHIC GENDER IMBALANCE—MUST BE
ANALYZED IN TERMS OF JUSTICE. DOING SOMETHING ABOUT THEM IS NOT A DISCRETIONARY
MATTER—IT IS A REQUIREMENT OF BEING HUMAN. SEN IS THE MOST SOPHISTICATED
INTELLECTUAL CAMPAIGNER OF OUR TIMES—HIS ARGUMENTS HAVE SHAPED NOT JUST
ACADEMIC DISCIPLINES BUT THE POLICIES OF GOVERNMENTS AND OF GLOBAL INSTITUTIONS LIKE
THE WORLD BANK.”
—SUNIL KHILNANI, FINANCIAL TIMES ONLINE
“[SEN’S] BOOK QUITE RADICALLY ATTEMPTS TO SHIFT THE GROUNDS OF THE CONVERSATION
[ABOUT JUSTICE] ALTOGETHER. IT SEEKS TO PROVIDE A COUNTER-FRAMEWORK RATHER THAN
A COUNTER-THEORY. AND THIS IS ONLY ONE OF ITS MANY ADMIRABLE AMBITIONS…THE
REPUDIATION OF THE ECONOMICIST ACCOUNT OF LIFE IS ONE OF THIS BOOK’S MOST VALUABLE
ACHIEVEMENTS.”

A Failure of Capitalism
THE CRI SI S OF ’ 08 AND THE DESCENT I NTO DEPRESSI ON
RICHARD A. POSNER
The financial and economic crisis that began
in 2008 is the most alarming of our lifetime
because of the warp-speed at which it began.
Posner presents a concise and non-technical
examination of this mother of all financial
disasters and of the, as yet, stumbling efforts
to cope with it.
“BY THE LAST PAGE, NOT A SINGLE LAZY
GENERALIZATION HAS SURVIVED POSNER’S
MERCILESS SCRUTINY, NOT ONE POPULIST
CLICHÉ REMAINS STANDING.”
—JONATHAN RAUCH, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
“LIVELY, READABLE, AND PLAINSPOKEN…POSNER HAS AN
EXTRAORDINARILY SHARP MIND.”
—ROBERT M. SOLOW, NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
“BEFORE SEEKING POLITICAL ASYLUM IN FREE-MARKET HONG
KONG, CONSIDER READING A NEW BOOK THAT CRITIQUES WHAT
WENT WRONG WITH CAPITALISM, WRITTEN IN ORDER TO SAVE IT…
[POSNER] IS ONE OF OUR MOST ORIGINAL AND CLEARHEADED
THINKERS.”

The Generalissimo
CHI ANG KAI - SHEK AND THE STRUGGLE F OR MODERN CHI NA
JAY TAYLOR
A Financial Times Best History Book
The Lionel Gelber Prize for Best Book on
International Affairs
Drawing heavily on Chinese sources including
Chiang’s diaries, The Generalissimo provides
the most lively, sweeping, and objective biogra-
phy yet of a man whose length of uninter-
rupted, active engagement at the highest levels
in the march of history is excelled by few, if any,
in modern history.
“NOW THAT JAY TAYLOR HAS WRITTEN HIS
COMPREHENSIVE BOOK THE GENERALISSIMO:
CHIANG KAI-SHEK AND THE STRUGGLE FOR MODERN CHINA, WE ARE
ABLE TO SEE CHIANG AS A MAN OF CONSIDERABLE CUNNING,
BRUTALITY AND PATIENCE WHO SKILLFULLY PLAYED A WEAK HAND
AGAINST THE JAPANESE AND MAO’S FORCES WHILE EXTRACTING
HUGE SUMS FROM THE AMERICANS.”
—JONATHAN MIRSKY, NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Somewhere in Africa, more than a
million years ago, a line of apes
began to rear their young differently
than their Great Ape ancestors. From
this new form of care came new
ways of engaging and understanding
each other.
“HRDY’S CONCEPTION OF EARLY
HUMAN SOCIETY IS FAR DIFFERENT
FROM THE CLASSIC SOCIO-
BIOLOGICAL VIEW OF A PRIMEVAL
NUCLEAR FAMILY, WITH DAD OFF
HUNTING BIG GAME AND MOM TENDING THE CAVE AND THE KIDS.
INSTEAD, HRDY PAINTS A PICTURE OF A COOPERATIVE BREEDING
CULTURE IN WHICH PARENTING DUTIES WERE SPREAD OUT ACROSS
A NETWORK OF FRIENDS AND RELATIVES. THE EFFECT ON OUR
DEVELOPMENT WAS PROFOUND.”

CHARLES DARWIN
I NTRODUCTI ON AND NOTES BY JAMES T. COSTA
On the Origin of Species is the most
important and yet least read scientific
work in the history of science. Now
James T. Costa—experienced field
biologist, theorist on the evolution of
insect sociality, and passionate advo-
cate for teaching Darwin—has given a
new voice to this epochal work.
“CLEARLY WORTH ATTENTION…
COSTA MAKES USE OF HIS EXPERIENCE
AS A FIELD NATURALIST AND HIS
KNOWLEDGE OF THE MODERN
LITERATURE OF EVOLUTIONARY BIOLOGY TO ILLUMINE MANY
PASSAGES IN DARWIN’S WORK.”
—RICHARD C. LEWONTIN, NEW YORK REVIEW OF BOOKS
“EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT [ON THE ORIGIN OF SPECIES], BUT I
VENTURE TO GUESS THAT FEW NON-SCHOLARS HAVE ACTUALLY
READ IT. NOW, ALONG COMES JAMES T. COSTA WITH THIS
FACSIMILE. THE INDEX TO THE NEW EDITION, AND ESPECIALLY
COSTA’S WONDERFUL ANNOTATIONS, MAKE THIS CLASSIC TEXT NOT

STEPHEN DESTEFANO
A moose frustrates commuters by wandering
onto the highway; a cougar stalks his prey
through suburban backyards; an alligator suns
himself in a strip mall parking lot. Such sto-
ries, which regularly make headline news,
highlight the blurred divide that now exists
between civilization and wilderness.
“DESTEFANO WEAVES PERSONAL STORIES OF
HIS OWN WILD ENCOUNTERS WITH SCIENTIFIC
EVIDENCE ON THE NEGATIVE EFFECTS THAT
LIGHT, NOISE, TRAFFIC, ROAD BUILDING AND
OTHER HUMAN ACTIVITIES HAVE ON THE WILD
ANIMALS IN OUR MIDST. AS THE BOOK UNFOLDS, READERS ARE
DRAWN INTO HIS QUESTIONS AND ARE CALLED TO RETHINK ‘OUR
OVERWHELMING OCCUPATION OF THE LANDSCAPE.’”
—LYANDA LYNN HAUPT, LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW
“DESTEFANO CITES SOME ALARMING FACTS: IN THE PAST HALF-
CENTURY, THE AVERAGE SIZE OF THE AMERICAN HOME HAS GROWN
FROM NINE HUNDRED AND EIGHTY-THREE SQUARE FEET TO TWENTY-
THREE HUNDRED AND FIFTY; THE MERE PRESENCE OF A PAVED ROAD
ALTERS THE ECOSYSTEM FOR THREE HUNDRED FEET ON EITHER SIDE
OF IT. BUT, HAVING EXPERIENCED THE BENEFITS OF A SUBURBAN
CHILDHOOD, HE REFUSES TO REDUCE HIS THINKING TO A VIEW IN
WHICH WILDERNESS PRESERVATION IS THE ONLY SOLUTION.”

Voice and Vision
A GUI DE TO WRI TI NG HI STORY AND

STEPHEN J. PYNE
Voice and Vision is for those who
wish to understand the ways in
which literary considerations can
enhance nonfiction writing. Fiction
has guidebooks galore; journalism
has shelves stocked with manuals;
but history and other serious or
scholarly nonfiction have nothing
comparable. Now this curious
omission is addressed by Stephen
Pyne as he analyzes and teaches
the craft that undergirds whole realms of nonfiction and book-based
academic disciplines.
“THE BOOK IS EVERYTHING THE AUTHOR SAYS A WORK OF
NONFICTION OUGHT TO BE: WELL WRITTEN, CLEARLY THOUGHT OUT,
AND FULL OF SPECIFIC EXAMPLES (OF WHAT TO DO AND WHAT NOT
TO DO). AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR ANYONE WHO IS ATTEMPTING TO
WRITE NONFICTION, OR EVEN JUST THINKING ABOUT IT.”
—DAVID PITT, BOOKLIST
“[PYNE’S] BOOK IS A TOUR DE FORCE OF CRITICAL COMMENTARY
AND EXPLANATION. VOICE AND VISION IS AN ENGAGING LITERARY
PERFORMANCE IN ITS OWN RIGHT.”

When many of our fellow citizens

“THE SCOPE OF GRAFTON’S
VOLUME IS VAST, AND THE TOPICS IT

IMPORTANT. HE TAKES HIS READERS
ON A LONG JOURNEY, FROM THE
REPUBLIC OF LETTERS TO THE
BABEL OF THE INTERNET. IF IT IS HARD TO SAY WHETHER OR NOT
THE ROAD LEADS UPWARD TO THE LIGHT, THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT
WE COULD NOT ASK FOR ANYONE WISER TO LEAD US. LIKE DANTE’S

“GRAFTON MAY BE STEEPED IN THE PAST, BUT HE IS NO

HISTORY
The Supreme Court and the
American Elite, 1789–2008
LUCAS A. POWE, JR.
“The Supreme Court follows the election
returns,” the fictional Mr. Dooley observed
a hundred years ago. And for all our ideals
and dreams of a disinterested judiciary,
above the political fray, it seems Mr. Dooley
was right. In this engaging—and disturb-
ing—book, Lucas A. Powe, Jr., reveals the
close fit between its decisions and the
nation’s politics.
“POWE HAS CERTAINLY WRITTEN A BOOK
THAT IS ENTERTAINING, QUIRKY,
IDIOSYNCRATIC, FUN TO READ, AND MORE THAN OCCASIONALLY
INSIGHTFUL. IT DOES BLEND TOGETHER LEGAL DOCTRINE AND
AMERICAN POLITICS, AND AS A RESULT THE HISTORY IS RICHER—
AND MORE COMPLETE—THAN THE USUAL ACCOUNT.”
—LAWRENCE M. FRIEDMAN, AMERICAN PROSPECT
“A LEADING HISTORIAN OF THE SUPREME COURT, POWE DECRIES
WHAT HE CALLS THE IMPERIAL COURT, WHICH HE SEES AS OVERLY
CONCERNED WITH SOLIDIFYING ITS PRIMACY THROUGH A SERIES OF
PRETENTIOUS OPINIONS. HE DETAILS A LITANY OF CASES IN WHICH
THE REHNQUIST COURT OVERTURNED POSITIVE, PROGRESSIVE, AND
PROACTIVE LEGISLATION DESIGNED TO PROTECT AND IMPROVE
SOCIETY, INSTEAD TURNING TO RIGID INTERPRETATION IN AN
OVERREACHING ATTEMPT TO STIFLE CONGRESSIONAL AUTHORITY, AS
GRANTED BY THE CONSTITUTION.”

A TERCENTENARY CELEBRATI ON
SAMUEL JOHNSON
EDI TED BY PETER MARTI N
Published for Johnson’s 300th birthday, this
tercentenary gift edition introduces readers to
Dr. Johnson’s wisdom and the great pleasures
of his prose.
“WE SEE IN [JOHNSON’S] ESSAYS THE TINY
BRUSHWORK OF BRILLIANT SELF-
PORTRAITURE; WE HEAR THE RHYTHM OF
MORAL SERIOUSNESS, THE SOUND OF
CONTEMPLATION AS IT ENGAGES WITH THE
QUESTIONS OF HOW TO LIVE AND HOW TO
MANAGE IN THE FACE OF DEATH. BUT MOST
OF ALL WE FEEL THE REACH OF AN AUTHOR—
A WRITER ATTEMPTING TO REACH PAST SELF-DOUBT, POVERTY,
CANT, AND ORTHODOXY, IN ORDER TO ASSERT THE POWER OF
INDIVIDUAL AUTHORSHIP AND FREE THINKING IN THE FACE OF MORE
NEBULOUS AUTHORITIES. SAMUEL JOHNSON MAY HAVE FAILED
OFTEN ENOUGH TO BE PERSONABLE, BUT HE NEVERTHELESS FREED
SUBJECTIVITY…AND BROUGHT BOTH DIGNITY AND SELF-
SUFFICIENCY TO THE WRITING GAME, ALLOWING AUTHORS TO BE
WHO THEY CHOSE TO BE, UNSHACKLED FROM PATRONAGE AND THE
REQUIREMENT TO PLEASE GREAT MEN. WE SEE IT IN HIS ESSAYS
AND WE SEE IT AGAIN IN HIS LIVES OF THE POETS: A WRITER’S
WRITER, BECKONING INDIVIDUAL CREATIVE POWER OUT OF THE MIRE
OF DEPENDENCY, MAKING THE WORK ANSWERABLE ONLY TO HIGH
STANDARDS OF EXCELLENCE STRINGENTLY APPLIED.”

Darker than Blue
ON THE MORAL ECONOMI ES OF BLACK ATLANTI C CULTURE
PAUL GILROY
Paul Gilroy seeks to awaken a new
understanding of W. E. B. Du Bois’s
intellectual and political legacy.
With his brilliant, provocative
analysis and astonishing range of
reference, Gilroy revitalizes the
study of African American culture.
He traces the shifting character of
black intellectual and social move-
ments, and shows how we can
construct an account of moral
progress that reflects today’s complex realities.
“IF THE MORAL FORCE OF BALDWIN’S WRITING WAS FUELLED BY
THE SOLIDARITY OF THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT, GILROY’S BOOK
IS A WARNING OF MORAL BANKRUPTCY CREEPING INTO CONTEMPO-
RARY U.S. BLACK CULTURE. ACCORDING TO GILROY, COMMODITIES
HAVE REPLACED COMMUNITY, AND THE SPIRIT OF THE FREEDOM
MARCHES HAS BEEN OVERTAKEN BY THE ROAR OF ACCESSORIZED
HUMMERS. THIS IS NOT SIMPLY A CURMUDGEONLY CRITIQUE OF
CONTEMPORARY CULTURE, AND GILROY TEASES OUT THE REASONS
WHY THE MORAL ENERGY THAT GALVANIZED THE CIVIL RIGHTS
MOVEMENT HAS BEEN DILUTED BY CORPORATE AMERICAN LIFE IN
[THIS] PENETRATING AND EXHILARATING [BOOK].”

“Are you an American, or are you not?” This

And this question is at the heart of Katherine

Selected Stories
NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE
EDI TED WI TH AN I NTRODUCTI ON BY
BRENDA WI NEAPPLE
Dark, weird, psychologically complex,
Hawthorne’s short fiction continues to fas-
cinate readers. Brenda Wineapple has
made a generous selection of Hawthorne’s
stories, including some of his best-known tales as well as other, less-
often anthologized gems. In her introduction, Wineapple explores
a writer whose best stories, as she has elsewhere observed, “pene-
trate the secret horrors of ordinary life, those interstices in the gen-
eral routine where suddenly something or
someone shifts out of place, changing everything.”
The John Harvard Library edition repro-
duces the authoritative texts of Hawthorne’s sto-
ries in The Centenary Edition of the Works of
Nathaniel Hawthorne.
BRENDA WI NEAPPLE is Director of the Leon
Levy Center for Biography at The Graduate

The Pioneers
JAMES FENIMORE COOPER
I NTRODUCTI ON BY ROBERT DALY
With The Pioneers (1823), Cooper
initiated his series of elegiac
romances of frontier life and intro-
duced the world to Natty Bumppo
(or Leather-stocking). Set in 1793
in New York State, the novel
depicts an aging Leather-stocking
negotiating his way in a restlessly
expanding society. In his introduc-
tion, Robert Daly argues for the
novel’s increasing relevance: we
live in a similarly complex society
as Cooper’s frontier world, faced with the same questions about the
limits of individualism, the need for voluntary cooperation, and
stewardship of the environment.
The John Harvard Library edition reproduces the authorita-
tive text of The Pioneers in the The Writings of James Fenimore
Cooper, published by the State University of New York Press.
ROBERT DALY, SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor of
English at the University at Buffalo, has published widely on

The Souls of Black Folk is Du Bois’s outstanding contribution to
modern political theory. It is his still influential answer to the ques-
tion, “What kind of politics should
African Americans conduct to
counter white supremacy?” Here,
in a major addition to American
studies and the first book-length
philosophical treatment of Du
Bois’s thought, Robert Gooding-
Williams examines the conceptual
foundations of Du Bois’s interpre-
tation of black politics.

Biology Is Technology
THE PROMI SE , PERI L, AND NE W BUSI NESS
OF ENGI NEERI NG LI F E
ROBERT H. CARLSON
Technology is a process and a body of knowl-
edge as much as a collection of artifacts.
Biology is no different—and we are just begin-
ning to comprehend the challenges inherent
in the next stage of biology as a human tech-
nology. It is this critical moment, with its
wide-ranging implications, that Robert Carlson
considers in Biology Is Technology. He offers
a uniquely informed perspective on the
endeavors that contribute to current progress
in this area.
“IN THIS NEW BOOK, BIOENGINEER ROBERT
H. CARLSON FORECASTS THE RISE OF THE CELL AND THE
SUBSEQUENT EMERGENCE OF BIOLOGICAL TECHNIQUES FOR MAKING
FUELS, SYNTHETIC DNA THAT BUILDS NEW ORGANISMS, AND
REVERSE-ENGINEERED VIRUSES FOR MAKING VACCINES. BIOLOGISTS,
CARLSON SAYS, ARE THE NEW ENGINEERS, AND THE FUTURE IS
IN REMODELING LIFE AS WE KNOW IT.”
—WIRED
“[CARLSON] PRESENTS AN INFORMATIVE VIEW OF THE FUTURE
PROSPECTS FOR BIOTECHNOLOGY AND ITS REGULATION.”
—MICHAEL A. GOLDMAN, NATURE
“SINCE ROB CARLSON IS THE AUTHORITATIVE TRACKER OF
PROGRESS IN BIOTECH, THIS BOOK IS THE MOST COMPLETE—AND

THE ANCESTOR WI THI N
MICHAEL YARUS
A majority of evolutionary biolo-
gists believe that we now can envi-
sion our biological predecessors—
not the first, but nearly the first,
living beings on Earth. Life from
an RNA World is about these van-
ished forebears, sketching them in
the distant past just as their work-
ings first began to resemble our
own.
“LIFE FROM AN RNA WORLD IS
AN UNCONVENTIONAL BOOK
ABOUT RNA. RATHER THAN OPENING WITH THE CENTRAL DOGMA
AND ATTENDANT TEACHINGS ON MOLECULAR BIOLOGY, YARUS USES
EVOLUTION AS A GATEWAY. HE THEN TAKES US ON A JOURNEY
THROUGH EVOLUTIONARY TIME, CONCENTRATING ON THE ROLES OF
THE VARIOUS FORMS OF RNA…[HE] IS A PROFICIENT GUIDE.”
—TIM HARRIS, NATURE
“MICHAEL YARUS’ BOOK IS A VERY ENJOYABLE READ, BE THE
READER A WELL INFORMED MOLECULAR BIOLOGIST, OR A LAY

After the collapse of the Han dynasty
in the third century CE, China
divided along a north-south line.
Mark Lewis traces the changes that
both underlay and resulted from this
split in a period that saw the geo-
graphic redefinition of China, more
engagement with the outside world,
significant changes to family life,
developments in the literary and
social arenas, and the introduction
of new religions.
The centuries between the
Han and the Tang had a profound and permanent impact on the
Chinese world.

how the traditional college culture can actually
pose obstacles to students’s success, and sug-
gests strategies for effectively explaining aca-

“WE HAVE HAD BLUE RIBBON COMMISSIONS,

STRUGGLE WITH THE CENTRAL QUESTION OF

CHRISTOPHER NEWFIELD
Gold Winner, Book of the Year Award,
ForeWord Magazine
An essential American dream—equal access
to higher education—was becoming a real-
ity with the GI Bill and civil rights move-
ments after World War II. But this vital
American promise has been broken.
Unmaking the Public University is the story
of how conservatives have maligned and
restructured public universities in a cam-
paign to end public education’s democratiz-
ing influence on American society.
“IT IS NOT OFTEN THAT EVEN A FIRST-RATE
SCHOLAR AND WRITER MANAGES TO DELVE
SO DEEPLY INTO A CORE PROBLEM OF HIS SOCIETY AND TIME AS TO
COME OUT WITH AN UNDERSTANDING OF IT THAT IS SO COMPLETE,
SO PROFOUND—INDEED REVELATORY—AS TO ILLUMINATE THE
PUBLIC MUDDLED MIND AND OPEN THE WAY TO RECOVERY. THIS IS
WHAT CHRISTOPHER NEWFIELD HAS ACHIEVED IN HIS BOOK,
UNMAKING THE PUBLIC UNIVERSITY.”
—EMILIA ILIEVA, DAILY NATION
“IT IS NOT EVERY DAY THAT YOU GET A METICULOUS ANALYSIS OF
HIGHER EDUCATION BUDGETARY MECHANISMS WITHIN THE SAME

In Living at Micro Scale David
Dusenbery shows that it isn’t easy
being small—existing at the size of,
say, a rotifer, a tiny multicellular ani-
mal just at the boundary between
the visible and the microscopic.
What are the physical consequences
of life at this scale?
“DAVID DUSENBERY’S BOOK LIVING

EXCELLENT JOB OF EXPLAINING THE
PHYSICS THAT IS RELEVANT AT THIS
SCALE AND, LATER IN THE BOOK, HOW THIS PHYSICS AFFECTS THE
BEHAVIOR OF MICROORGANISMS...THE BOOK WILL BE ACCESSIBLE

BIOLOGY, PHYSICS OR ENGINEERING. AND THE PROVOCATIVE
QUESTIONS PRESENTED ARE SURE TO BE THE SUBJECT OF INTENSE
ACTIVITY IN THE RESEARCH COMMUNITY FOR YEARS TO COME.”
—THOMAS R. POWERS, AMERICAN SCIENTIST
“THE BOOK DRAWS ON 20 YEARS OF DUSENBERY’S OWN
RESEARCH, AND HE DOESN’T COMPROMISE ON THE SCIENCE;
INFORMED READERS WILL FIND ALL THE EQUATIONS THEY COULD
NEED. BUT IT IS RARELY DRY OR UNINTERESTING, AND BENEFITS

Manipulative Monkeys
THE CAPUCHI NS OF LOMAS BARBUDAL
SUSAN PERRY
WI TH JOSEPH H. MANSON
This book takes us into a Costa Rican forest
teeming with simian drama, where since
1990 primatologists Susan Perry and Joseph
H. Manson have followed the lives of four
generations of capuchins. What the authors
describe is behavior as entertaining—and
occasionally as alarming—as it is recogniza-
ble: the competition and cooperation, the
jockeying for position and status, the peace-
ful years under an alpha male devolving into
bloody chaos, and the complex traditions
passed from one generation to the next.
“SUSAN PERRY AND JOSEPH H. MANSON’S BOOK REVEALS
CAPUCHINS AS HAVING SOCIAL LIVES AS RICH AND AS COMPLEX AS
THOSE...OF HUMANS...PERRY’S BOOK, WITH HER HUSBAND AND
RESEARCH PARTNER, IS FAR MORE THAN JUST STORIES ABOUT
MONKEYS’ SOCIAL LIVES. IT OFFERS FASCINATING BIOLOGY FROM
COSTA RICA’S TROPICAL FORESTS, INCLUDING THE SMALL,
SOMEWHAT UGLY, MACHIAVELLIAN CAPUCHIN MONKEYS. THEY ACT
AS THE FOCUS FOR A DISCOURSE THAT RANGES OVER ‘BIG
QUESTIONS’: WHY EVOLVE LARGE BRAINS AND INTELLIGENCE; HOW
DO YOUNGSTERS LEARN GROUP-TYPICAL BEHAVIOR; WHY DOES
LETHAL AGGRESSION OCCUR?...WE DESPERATELY NEED SUCH
STUDIES TO BE SUSTAINED. LET’S HOPE THIS FASCINATING BOOK
WILL GO SOME WAY TOWARDS ACHIEVING THIS AIM.”

Method and Meaning in Polls
and Surveys
HOWARD SCHUMAN
Howard Schuman is one of the
premier scholars of social surveys.
His expertise concerns the way
questions about attitudes and
beliefs are worded and the effects
questions have on the answers
people give. However, Method
and Meaning in Polls and Surveys
is less about the substance of
wording effects and more about
approaches to interpreting the
respondent’s world, and how surveys can make that world under-
standable.
“ONCE MORE, HOWARD SCHUMAN BRINGS HIS SCHOLARLY
IMAGINATION AND METHODOLOGICAL RIGOR TO THE TASK OF
DECIPHERING THE QUESTION-AND-ANSWER PROCESS…IT IS
THE WORK OF THE MASTER CRAFTSMAN, THE CONSUMMATE
METHODOLOGIST DEMONSTRATING HOW TO DISCOVER THE
MULTIFACETED ‘MEANING’ OF RESPONSES TO SURVEY QUESTIONS
THROUGH THE DISCIPLINE OF ‘METHOD’ CONSTRUED IN ALL ITS
MANIFOLD FORMS.”

When Is Discrimination Wrong?
DEBORAH HELLMAN
We routinely draw distinctions
among people on the basis of char-

While some distinctions are benign,
many are morally troubling. In this
boldly conceived book, Deborah
Hellman develops a much-needed
general theory of discrimination. She
demonstrates that many familiar
ideas about when discrimination is
wrong—when it is motivated by
prejudice, grounded in stereotypes,
or simply departs from merit-based decision-making—won’t ade-
quately explain our widely shared intuitions.

Plantation Enterprise in
Colonial South Carolina
S. MAX EDELSON
George C. Rogers, Jr. Book Award,
South Carolina Historical Society
Theodore Saloutos Memorial Book Award,
The Agricultural History Society
This impressive scholarly debut deftly rein-
terprets one of America’s oldest symbols—
the southern slave plantation. S. Max
Edelson examines the relationships between
planters, slaves, and the natural world they
colonized to create the Carolina Lowcountry.
“EDELSON DEFTLY TRACES HOW SOME EARLY
COLONISTS OVERCAME THEIR PREJUDICE
TOWARD MARSHES AND SWAMPS TO DEVELOP
A PROFITABLE PLANTATION SYSTEM. THEY
ADAPTED THE CAROLINA LANDSCAPE TO THE
ATLANTIC ECONOMY BY LEARNING FROM
LOCAL INDIAN COMMUNITIES AND IMPORTED
AFRICANS, AND THROUGH ACTIVE EXPERIMENTATION, REFINING THE
ART OF RICE PRODUCTION, WHICH THEY SUPPLEMENTED WITH
INDIGO AND OTHER CROPS.”
—ALAN GALLAY, JOURNAL OF AMERICAN HISTORY
“HISTORIANS HAVE WRITTEN MUCH ABOUT SOUTH CAROLINA’S
COLONIAL PAST, BUT IN PLANTATION ENTERPRISE, EDELSON
PROVIDES A COMPELLING AND WELL-WRITTEN NEW PERSPECTIVE
ON FREQUENTLY DEBATED TOPICS BY ASKING COMMONSENSE
QUESTIONS ABOUT HERETOFORE ACCEPTED INTERPRETATIONS.”

Daughters of the Union
NORTHERN WOMEN F I GHT THE CI VI L WAR
NINA SILBER
Daughters of the Union casts a spotlight on
some of the most overlooked and least under-
stood participants in the American Civil War:
the women of the North. Nina Silber traces
the emergence of a new sense of self and citi-
zenship among the women left behind by
Union soldiers.
“IN THIS PROVOCATIVE, CHALLENGING WORK,
SILBER WRITES ORDINARY WOMEN ONTO THE
PAGE AND RESHAPES THE BOUNDARIES OF
CIVIL WAR HISTORY. HER ATTENTION TO THE
PRESENCE OF NORTHERN BLACK WOMEN IS
PARTICULARLY NOTEWORTHY.”
—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
“DAUGHTERS OF THE UNION: NORTHERN WOMEN FIGHT THE CIVIL
WAR IS AN INNOVATIVE ANALYSIS THAT IS SURE TO INSPIRE A
RECONSIDERATION OF NORTHERN WOMEN’S PATRIOTISM AND ITS

Strait Talk
UNI TED STATES- TAI WAN RELATI ONS AND
THE CRI SI S WI TH CHI NA
NANCY BERNKOPF TUCKER
Relations among the United States,
Taiwan, and China challenge poli-
cymakers, international relations
specialists, and a concerned public
to examine their assumptions about
security, sovereignty, and peace.
Only a Taiwan Straits conflict could
plunge Americans into war with a
nuclear-armed great power. In a
timely and deeply informed book,
Nancy Bernkopf Tucker traces the
thorny relationship between the
United States and Taiwan as both watch China’s power grow.
“STRAIT TALK IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK, PARTICULARLY FOR THOSE
WHO WANT TO UNDERSTAND THE TURBULENT TRIANGULAR
RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE U.S., TAIWAN AND CHINA, AND HOW
IT HAS BEEN INFLUENCED BY VARIOUS PEOPLE OVER THE PAST SIX
DECADES…[TUCKER] COVERS EVENTS AND POLICY DEBATES FROM
THE DAYS OF THE TRUMAN PRESIDENCY ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE
END OF THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION IN 2008.”
—GERRIT VAN DER WEES, TAIPEI TIMES
“[TUCKER] FOCUSES ON THE LESS-STUDIED WASHINGTON-TAIPEI
LEG OF THE BEIJING-WASHINGTON-TAIPEI TRIANGLE, TRACING THE
INTERACTION OF POLICIES AND PERSONALITIES WITH A LEVEL OF
DETAIL MADE POSSIBLE BY EXTENSIVE INTERVIEWS AND ARCHIVAL
RESEARCH AND WITH A CLARITY OF JUDGMENT MADE POSSIBLE BY A
LONG FAMILIARITY WITH MOST OF THE PROTAGONISTS.”
—ANDREW J. NATHAN, FOREIGN AFFAIRS

Department and the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service
at Georgetown University.
