about the book

preface xi

FARMfood is generally divided into meal periods, so flipping through the pages is like going through a day in the kitchen. There are recipes for everyone: from simple dishes to complex, from rich to lean, from carnivore’s delight to vegan ecstasy. There are quick meals to take along to work or on a picnic and more elaborate fun fêtes to share with family and friends. My hope is to share a light and breezy way of cooking that is both approachable and satisfying. FARMfood is about taking some of the complexity out of this food system we find ourselves in and replacing it with the simple and honest products we can get next door or around the corner. This book is meant to inspire food lovers to support local farmers and craftsmen. That said, what is local at FARM may not be local for you. In this case, use the recipes as inspiration and bring home whatever is local to you and try some of my techniques. Recipes are guidelines and are meant to be changed to your taste. If you don’t like dill, try basil. If you don’t have a grill, try a grill pan. If you don’t eat meat, try replacing stew meat with tempeh. Please change the recipes to your taste, recreate them, make them your own . . . you bought the book, so the recipes are yours. There are many spice blends throughout the book and I’ve given you my secret recipes for them in the spice chapter. But don’t let a spice blend keep you from trying a recipe. Just replace it with what you have on hand if you don’t have the time to do that extra step. Or you can get them online at

Strengthening Congress
Lee H. Hamilton

“Lee Hamilton, one of this country's greatest public ser vants ever, . . . challenges Congress to revitalize its special place in the American constitutional system and exhorts citizens to engage this institution to realize the promise of our representative democracy. Strengthening Congress is both a constructive critique of the broken branch and a compelling call to arms for politicians and citizens alike to repair it.” —Thomas E. Mann, co-author of The Broken Branch

The case for reinvigorating Congress


ith the benefit of an insider's perspective, distinguished former congressman Lee H. Hamilton argues that America needs a stronger Congress and a more engaged citizenry in order to ensure responsive and effective democracy. Hamilton explains how Congress has drifted away from the role envisioned for it in the Constitution as a body whose power and influence would be preeminent in the American system of government. He details the steps that Congress should take to re-establish its parity with the executive branch and become an institution that works reliably and effectively for the betterment of the nation—reinforce congressional oversight, restore the deliberative process, curb the influence of lobbyists, and reduce excessive partisanship. Concurrently, Hamilton calls upon Americans to take more seriously their obligations and responsibilities as citizens and engage with the critical issues facing their communities and the nation.

Lee H. Hamilton served Indiana in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1965 to 1999 and is Director of The Center on Congress at Indiana University Bloomington and President and Director of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. He is author of How Congress Works and Why You Should Care (IUP, 2004). • 1.800.842.6796

Ugly War, Pretty Package
How CNN and Fox News Made the Invasion of Iraq High Concept
Deborah L. Jaramillo

“Jaramillo provides a highly illuminating analysis of the aesthetics and politics of recent T V war coverage. Well-researched . . . comprehensive and penetrating . . . offer[ing] highly original research and analysis.” —Douglas Kellner, author of Media Spectacle and the Crisis of Democracy

Understanding media coverage of the Iraq War


eborah L. Jaramillo investigates cable news’ presentation of the Iraq War in relation to “high concept” filmmaking. High-concept films can be reduced to single-sentence summaries and feature pre-sold elements; they were considered financially safe projects that would sustain consumer interest beyond their initial theatrical run. Using high concept as a framework for the analysis of the 2003 coverage of the Iraq War—paying close attention to how Fox News and CNN packaged and promoted the U.S. invasion of Iraq—Ugly War, Pretty Package offers a new paradigm for understanding how television news reporting shapes our perceptions of events.

Cultural Studies Political Science

Terror, Culture, Politics: Rethinking 9/11 takes a critical look at the politics of American culture in the wake of the 2001 terrorist attacks. e volume takes as axiomatic—and, therefore, as demanding careful scrutiny—the connection between culture as creative expression and culture in the broader sense of the beliefs, values, and habits that members of a society hold in common. Coming from a wide array of disciplines—art history, history, literature, media studies, law, and political science—the contributors ask not so much how 9/11 changed American culture as how our existing cultural patterns, in such separate but linked domains as the media, public art, and political thought, shaped our responses to it. Ranging from comic books to Islamic feminism, from the urban fabric of New York to international legal theory, and including a photographic project by architect Laura Kurgan and an award-winning essay by literary critic Elaine Scarry, Terror, Culture, Politics offers new ways of looking not only at 9/11, but at the ways the multiple parts of our post-9/11 world might yet t together.

UN Ideas That Changed the World
Richard Jolly, Louis Emmerij, and Thomas G. Weiss Foreword by Kofi A. Annan

“I am ever more persuaded that the United Nations has a vital and inescapable role in the 21st century. The lessons since 1945, as set out in the United Nations Intellectual History Project Series, contain many insights for our common future. . . . UN ideas have been among the world organization's most important achievements. . . . This project will continue to inspire innovation and scholarship for many decades to come.” — from the foreword by Kofi A. Annan, United Nations Secretary-General, 1997–2006

How UN ideas are changing the world

deas and concepts have been a driving force in human progress, and they may be the most important legacy of the United Nations. UN ideas have set past, present, and future international agendas in many global economic and social arenas and have also led to initiatives and actions that have improved the quality of human life. This capstone volume draws upon findings of the other 14 books in the acclaimed United Nations Intellectual History Project Series. The authors not only assess the development and implementation of UN ideas regarding sustainable economic development and human security, but also apply lessons learned to suggest ways in which the United Nations can play a fuller role in confronting the challenges of human survival with dignity in the 21st century.

The Silent Eloquence of Shaker Architecture

Stillness and Light

Henry Plummer

“ These images of historic Shaker buildings are stunning.” — Stephen J. Stein, author of The Shaker Experience in America “ [These] spaces . . . are mirages infused with a sense of reality and epiphany.” —Juhani Pallasmaa, Architect SAFA, Hon. FAIA, Int. FRIBA, Professor of Architecture, Helsinki

How natural light suffuses Shaker design
haker buildings have long been admired for their simplicity of design and sturdy craftsmanship, with form always following function. Over the years, their distinctive physical characteristics have invited as much study as imitation. Their clean, unadorned lines have been said to reflect core Shaker beliefs such as honesty, integrity, purity, and perfection. In this book, Henry Plummer focuses on the use of natural light in Shaker architecture, noting that Shaker builders manipulated light not only for practical reasons of illumination but also to sculpt a deliberately spiritual, visual presence within their space. Stillness and Light celebrates this subtly beautiful aspect of Shaker innovation and construction, captured in more than 100 stunning photographs.
Henry Plummer is Professor of Architecture at the University of Illinois at UrbanaChampaign, where he is also an associate of the Center for Advanced Study. He is author of Poetics of Light, Light in Japanese Architecture, and The Architecture of Natural Light.

The Year's Work in Lebowski Studies
Edited by Edward P. Comentale and Aaron Jaffe

“ The essays are complex, evocative, approachable, and attentive to the film’s ironies and nuances. There is something here for the slacker as well as the scholar, for all Lebowskis, big and small, for film specialists, 90s fanatics, scholars of American studies, and the ever-growing assemblage of Lebowski cultists worldwide.” —Patrick O'Donnell, Michigan State University

Pioneering studies of the Coen brothers’ cult classic

massive underground sensation, The Big Lebowski has been hailed as the first cult film of the internet age. In this book, 21 fans and scholars address the film's influences—westerns, noir, grail legends, the 1960s, and Fluxus—and its historical connections to the first Iraq war, boomers, slackerdom, surrealism, college culture, and of course bowling. The Year's Work in Lebowski Studies contains neither arid analyses nor lectures for the late-night crowd, but new ways of thinking and writing about film culture.

The definitive collection of jazz fiction

The Jazz Fiction Anthology


Jazz Fiction


gathering of the best jazz fiction from the 1920s to the present, this anthology includes 20th-century fiction by Eudora Welty, James Baldwin, Richard Yates, and others, plus important recent work from writers such as Yusef Komunyakaa, Xu Xi, and Amiri Baraka. Together these artists demonstrate the strong influence of jazz on fiction. That influence can be felt in prose styles shaped by jazz—freewheeling, dramatic, conversational, improvisatory; in stories of players and listeners searching for what lies beyond the music's aesthetic power; and in the ambience of the jazz performance as captured by the written word. What sounds throughout these stories is the universal voice of humanity that is the essence of the music.
Sascha Feinstein is editor of Brilliant Corners: A Journal of Jazz & Literature; The Jazz Poetry Anthology (IUP, 1991) and The Second Set (IUP, 1996) (both with Yusef Komunyakaa); and Ask Me Now: Conversations on Jazz and Literature (IUP, 2007). In 2008, Feinstein was named Pennsylvania's Governor's Awards Artist of the Year. David Rife is author of Jazz Fiction: A History and Comprehensive Reader's Guide.

Expressions of African musical and religious traditions in the city's Carnival culture

Jazz Religion, the Second Line, and Black New Orleans
Richard Brent Turner


n his new book, Richard Brent Turner explores the history and contemporary significance of the popular religious traditions, identities, and performance forms celebrated in the second lines of the jazz street parades of black New Orleans. The second line is the group of dancers who follow the first procession of church and club members, brass bands, and grand marshals. Here musical and religious traditions interplay. Jazz Religion, the Second Line, and Black New Orleans examines the relationship of jazz to indigenous religion and spirituality. It explores how the African diasporist religious identities and musical traditions—from Haiti and West and Central Africa—are reinterpreted in New Orleans jazz and popular religious performances, while describing how the participants in the second line create their own social space and become proficient in the arts of political disguise, resistance, and performance.

Richard Brent Turner is Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Iowa and author of Islam in the African American Experience (IUP, 2003). • 1.800.842.6796

Buddy Holly
Paperback Original
Dave Laing

“If the plane crash that killed Buddy Holly was not exactly ‘the day the music died,’ 1959 was the year in which rock ‘n roll in general ceased to be innovative. . . . The various stylistic changes in Holly’s music immediately prior to his death suggest intriguingly that he would have escaped this fate to make an innovative contribution to the next decade.” —From the first chapter

A fresh take on the legacy of a rock 'n' roll idol

n his analysis of Buddy Holly's music and lyrics, his impact on music of the late 1950s, and his posthumous influence on the music industry, Dave Laing aims to provide a fresh perspective on this early rock icon. The longest-serving member of the rock immortals club—those singers and musicians for whom death seems to inaugurate a new phase of their careers—Holly was elevated to a place of honor in rock history soon after the plane crash that took his life in February 1959. One of the first artifacts acquired by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum was the twisted pair of his trademark black-rimmed glasses recovered from the plane wreckage. Despite his premature death at the age of 22 and the relatively limited output of his recordings during his lifetime, Buddy Holly remains one of the most influential and best-loved figures in rock 'n' roll.

Rush, Rock Music, and the Middle Class
Dreaming in Middletown
Chris McDonald

“A well-researched, provocative glimpse into one of the most popular, yet oft-overlooked bands in the history of rock.” —Theo Cateforis, editor of The Rock Histor y Reader

The soundtrack of late 20th-century suburbia

anadian progressive rock band Rush was the voice of the suburban middle class. In this book, Chris McDonald assesses the band’s impact on popular music and its legacy for legions of fans. McDonald explores the ways in which Rush’s critique of suburban life—and its strategies for escape—reflected middle-class aspirations and anxieties, while its performances manifested the dialectic in prog rock between discipline and austerity, and the desire for spectacle and excess. The band’s reception reflected the internal struggles of the middle class over cultural status. Critics cavalierly dismissed, or apologetically praised, Rush’s music for its middlebrow leanings. McDonald’s wide-ranging musical and cultural analysis sheds light on one of the most successful and enduring rock bands of the 1970s and 1980s.

The Bard on Broadway

Shakespeare and the American Musical
Irene G. Dash


S h A k e S pe A r e and the American Musical
Irene G. Dash

rene G. Dash explores the influence of Shakespeare on American musical theater through analyses of five important productions from 1938 through 1971—The Boys from Syracuse (The Comedy of Errors), Kiss Me, Kate (Taming of the Shrew), West Side Story (Romeo and Juliet), Your Own Thing (Twelfth Night), and Two Gentlemen of Verona. Dash argues that adaptations of Shakespeare were instrumental in the alteration of the musical theater formula from the stock plots and song forms of the 1930s musical comedy to the more organic “integrated musical,” where songs and dance sequences were used to advance the plot rather than break the action. In bringing together these well-known works, Dash offers a fresh look at the development of American musical theater and a new understanding of Shakespeare in the modern American context.

Irene G. Dash is Professor Emeritus, Hunter College, CUNY. She is author of Women's Worlds in Shakespeare's Plays and Wooing, Wedding, and Power: Women in Shakespeare's Plays. Her most recent published work appears in the Folger Shakespeare Library's edited volume Shakespeare in American Life.

The origins of American cinema's fascination with Italy

Italy in Early American Cinema
Race, Landscape, and the Picturesque

Giorgio Bertellini
iorgio Bertellini traces the origins of American cinema's century-long fascination with Italy and Italian immigrants to the popularity of the pre-photographic aesthetic—the picturesque. Once associated with landscape painting in northern Europe, the picturesque came to symbolize Mediterranean Europe through comforting views of distant landscapes and exotic characters. Showing readers how this aesthetic was transferred from 19th-century American painters to early 20th-century American filmmakers, Bertellini moves from the picturesque in silent films to the Godfather trilogy, perhaps the definitive example of the picturesque in modern cinema. Italy in Early American Cinema offers readings of early films that pay close attention to how landscape representations that were related to narrative settings and filmmaking locations conveyed distinct ideas about racial difference and national destiny.
Giorgio Bertellini is Assistant Professor of Screen Arts and Cultures and of Romance Languages and Literatures at the University of Michigan. He is editor (with Richard Abel and Rob King) of Early Cinema and the “National.”

Wagner's legacy in sound and on screen


he work of Richard Wagner is a continuing source of artistic inspiration and ideological controversy in literature, philosophy, and music, as well as cinema. In Wagner and Cinema, a diverse group of established and emerging scholars examines Wagner's influence on cinema from the silent era to the present. The essays in this collection engage in a critical dialogue with existing studies—extending and renovating current theories related to the topic—and propose unexplored topics and new methodological perspectives. The contributors discuss films ranging from the 1913 biopic of Wagner to Ridley Scott’s Gladiator, with essays on silent cinema, film scoring, Wagner in Hollywood, German cinema, and Wagner beyond the soundtrack.

Ousmane Sembène
The Making of a Militant Artist
Samba Gadjigo Translated by Moustapha Diop Foreword by Danny Glover

“Samba Gadjigo has undertaken a very important task, that of writing the first biography of one of the best-known and most influential African writers— and the founder of the continent's cinema— Ousmane Sembène.” — Christopher L. Miller, author of The French Atlantic Triangle

A towering figure of African literature and film

amba Gadjigo presents a unique personal portrait and intellectual history of novelist and filmmaker Ousmane Sembène. Though Sembène has persistently deflected attention away from his personality, his life, and his past, Gadjigo has had unprecedented access to the artist and his family. This book is the first comprehensive biography of Sembène and contributes a critical appraisal of his life and art in the context of the political and social influences on his work. Beginning with Sembène’s life in Casamance, Senegal, and ending with his militant career as a dockworker in Marseilles, Gadjigo places Sembène into the context of African colonial and postcolonial culture and charts his achievements in film and literature. This landmark book reveals the inner workings of one of Africa’s most distinguished and controversial figures.


Samba Gadjigo is Professor of French and Head of the French Department at Mount Holyoke College. He is author of Ecole blanche, Afrique noire: L'image de l'école coloniale dans le roman africaine francophone and editor of Ousmane Sembène: Dialogue with Critics and Writers. • 1.800.842.6796

The Last Century of Sea Power
Volume 2 From Washington to Tokyo, 1922–1945
H. P. Willmott

“H. P. Willmott is the finest naval historian and among the finest historians of any discipline writing today. His latest work further strengthens that richly deser ved accolade.” —Bernard D. Cole, author of The Great Wall at Sea

The second volume of an important new analysis of 20th-century sea power

n this second volume of his history of naval power in the 20th century, H. P. Willmott follows the fortunes of the established seafaring nations of Europe along with two upstarts—the United States and Japan. Emerging from World War I in command of the seas, Great Britain saw its supremacy weakened through neglect and in the face of more committed rivals. Britain’s grand Coronation Review of 1937 marked the apotheosis of a sea power slipping into decline. Meanwhile, Britain’s rivals and soon-to-be enemies were embarking on significant naval building programs that would soon change the nature of war at sea in ways that neither they nor their rivals anticipated. By the end of a new world war, the United States had taken command of two oceans, having placed its industrial might behind technologies that further defined the arena of naval power above and below the waves, where stealth and the ability to strike at great distance would soon rewrite the rules of war and of peace. This splendid volume further enhances Willmott’s stature as the dean of naval historians.

The definitive biography of “The Father of Electric Traction”

Frank Julian Sprague
Electrical Inventor and Engineer


Willliam D. Middleton and William D. Middleton III Foreword by John L. Sprague

rank Julian Sprague invented a system for distributing electricity to streetcars from overhead wires. Within a year, electric streetcars had begun to replace horsecars, sparking a revolution in urban transportation. Sprague (1857–1934) was an American naval officer turned inventor who worked briefly for Thomas Edison before striking out on his own. Sprague contributed to the development of the electric motor, electric railways, and electric elevators. His innovations would help transform the urban space of the 20th century, enabling cities to grow larger and skyscrapers taller. The Middletons’ generously illustrated biography is an engrossing study of the life and times of a maverick innovator.

The Missouri Frontier from Borderland to Border State

Stephen Aron


n the heart of North America, the Missouri, Ohio, and Mississippi rivers come together, uniting waters from west, north, and east on a journey to the south. This is the region that Stephen Aron calls the American Confluence. Aron’s innovative book examines the history of that region—a home to the Osage, a colony exploited by the French, a new frontier explored by Lewis and Clark—and focuses on the region’s transition from a place of overlapping borderlands to one of oppositional border states. American Confluence is a lively account that will delight both the amateur and professional historian.

An American Hometown
Terre Haute, Indiana, 1927

Tom Roznowski Foreword by Scott Russell Sanders

“Roznowski has the storyteller ’s skill for isolating relevant detail and employing rhetorical flourish to illuminate both character and scene.” —Jacob Jones, University of Maryland

A storyteller looks at a bygone America


hey lived “green” out of necessity—walking to work, repairing everything from worn shoes to wristwatches, recycling milk bottles and packing containers. Music was largely heard live and most residential streets had shade trees. The nearby Wabash River—a repeated subject of story and song—transported Sunday picnickers to public parks. In the form of an old-fashioned city directory, An American Hometown celebrates a bygone American era, focusing on life in 1920s Terre Haute, Indiana. With artfully drawn biographical sketches and generously illustrated histories, noted musician, historian, and storyteller Tom Roznowski not only evokes a beauty worth remembering, but also brings to light just how many of our modern ideas of sustainable living are deeply rooted in the American tradition.

“ To all who care about nature and the changing seasons, reading it will be a satisfying experience.” —Harper's Magazine “Before I knew it, the year had passed, and I felt energized, optimistic, and entertained— as if I had spent the period actually in the company of Rachel Peden.” —Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac

A timeless celebration of farm life

ural Free, first published in 1961, beautifully conveys the joys of family life on an Indiana farm. Marked by the slow pace and rich variety of seasonal change, Rachel Peden’s narrative offers an authentic month-by-month chronicle of her family’s daily adventures. Today, as the slow-food movement gathers support and more urban dwellers return to the land to plant roots again in honest soil, Peden’s stories of country life and her lessons on sustainability, frugality, and wastefulness gain a special resonance. Rural Free will be a source of inspiration for all who rejoice in rural virtues and the spiritual freedom of country life.

The lives and experiences of women traders in Kumasi

African Market Women
Seven Life Stories from Ghana

Gracia Clark


n these lively life stories, women market traders from Ghana comment on changing social and economic times and on reasons for their prosperity or decline in fortunes. Gracia Clark shows that market women are intimately connected with economic policy on a global scale. Many work at the intersection of sophisticated networks of transnational commerce and migration. They have dramatic memories of independence and the growth of their new nation, including political rivalries, price controls, and violent raids on the market. The experiences of these women give substance to their reflections on globalization, capital accumulation, colonialism, technological change, environmental degradation, teenage pregnancy, marriage, children, changing gender roles, and spirituality. Clark's commentary illuminates the complex historical and cultural setting of these deeply revealing lives.

How religious issues shape gender and domestic life in West Africa

Women and Islamic Revival in a West African Town
Adeline Masquelier


n the small town of Dogondoutchi, Niger, Malam Awal, a charismatic Sufi preacher, was recruited by local Muslim leaders to denounce the practices of reformist Muslims. Malam Awal’s message has been viewed as a mixed blessing by Muslim women who have seen new definitions of Islam and Muslim practice impact their place and role in society. This study follows the career of Malam Awal and documents the engagement of women in the religious debates that are refashioning their everyday lives. Adeline Masquelier reveals how these women have had to define Islam on their own terms, especially as a practice that governs education, participation in prayer, domestic activities, wedding customs, and who wears the veil and how. Masquelier’s richly detailed narrative presents new understandings of what it means to be a Muslim woman in Africa today.

outh Africa's Truth and Reconciliation Commissions helped to end apartheid by providing a forum that exposed the nation's gross human rights abuses, provided amnesty and reparations to selected individuals, and eventually promoted national unity and healing. The success or failure of these commissions has been widely debated, but this is the first book to view the truth commission as public ritual and national theater. Catherine M. Cole brings an ethnographer's ear, a stage director's eye, and a historian's judgment to understand the vocabulary and practices of theater that mattered to the South Africans who participated in the reconciliation process. Cole looks closely at the record of the commissions, and sees their tortured expressiveness as a medium for performing evidence and truth to legitimize a new South Africa.

Conflict between traditional leaders and the new political order

Chieftaincy, the State, and Democracy
Political Legitimacy in Post-Apartheid South Africa
s South Africa consolidates its democracy, chieftaincy has remained a controversial and influential institution that has adapted to recent changes. J. Michael Williams examines the chieftaincy and how it has sought to assert its power since the end of apartheid. By taking local-level politics seriously and looking closely at how chiefs negotiate the new political order, Williams takes a position between those who see the chieftaincy as an indigenous democratic form deserving recognition and protection, and those who view it as incompatible with democracy. Williams describes a network of formal and informal accommodations that have influenced the ways state and local authorities interact. By focusing on local perceptions of the chieftaincy and its interactions with the state, Williams reveals an ongoing struggle for democratization at the local and national levels in South Africa.
J. Michael Williams is Associate Professor of Political Science and International Relations at the University of San Diego.

Challenges the idea that colonialism brought modernity to Africa

How Colonialism Preempted Modernity in Africa
Olúfémi Táíwò
hy hasn't Africa been able to respond to the challenges of modernity and globalization? Going against the conventional wisdom that colonialism brought modernity to Africa, Olúfémi Táíwò claims that Africa was already becoming modern and that colonialism was an unfinished project. Africans aspired to liberal democracy and the rule of law, but colonial officials aborted those efforts when they established indirect rule in the service of the European powers. Táíwò looks closely at modern institutions, such as church missionary societies, to recognize African agency and the impulse toward progress. He insists that Africa can get back on track and advocates a renewed engagement with modernity. Immigration, capitalism, democracy, and globalization, if done right this time, can be tools that shape a positive future for Africa.

ince 1990 more Africans have voluntarily relocated to the United States and Canada than had been forcibly brought here before the slave trade ended in 1807. The key reason for these migrations has been the collapse of social, political, economic, and educational structures in their home countries, which has driven Africans to seek security and self-realization in the West. This lively and timely collection looks at the new immigrant experience. It traces the immigrants' progress from expatriation to arrival and covers the successes as well as the problems they have encountered as they establish their lives in a new country. The contributors, most immigrants themselves, use their firsthand experiences to add clarity, honesty, and sensitivity to their discussions of the new African diaspora.

How colonial rule generated conditions for persistent violent confrontation

Colonialism and Violence in Nigeria
Toyin Falola
olonialism and Violence in Nigeria looks closely at the conditions that created a legacy of violence in Nigeria. Toyin Falola examines violence as a tool of domination and resistance, however unequally applied, to get to the heart of why Nigeria has not built a successful democracy. Falola’s analysis centers on two phases of Nigerian history: the last quarter of the 19th century, when linkages between violence and domination were part of the British conquest; and the first half of the 20th century, which was characterized by violent rebellion and the development of a national political consciousness. This important book emphasizes the patterns that have been formed and focuses on how violence and instability have influenced Nigeria today.

Captures the excitement and vitality of a spontaneous film movement

The Video Phenomenon in Nigeria

Edited by Pierre Barrot
ideo filmmaking is a boom industry in Nigeria. About 7,000 new titles appeared between 1992 and 2005. While most are of poor quality and made quickly on low budgets, some productions are feature-length and pull in stars from other entertainment sectors. These videos seem to have an almost endless supply of plots that are liberally copied from popular, mainstream films and television programs. Nollywood examines the lives and experiences of those involved in this multimillion-dollar industry. Interviews with producers, actors, distributors, and others capture the excitement and vitality of this homegrown industry that has emerged spontaneously and without external support. As it spreads continent-wide, the Nigerian video phenomenon is a potent counter to Afro-pessimism, demonstrating the possibility of reviving the African film industry and developing a cinemagoing public to support it.
Pierre Barrot works in the Department for Cultural Co-operation and Action at the French Embassy in Algiers, and was formerly the Regional Audio-Visual Attaché at the French Embassy in Lagos.

Film as visual ethnography

Observational Cinema
Anna Grimshaw and Amanda Ravetz

Anthropology, Film, and the Exploration of Social Life

nce hailed as a radical breakthrough in documentary and ethnographic filmmaking, observational cinema has been criticized for a supposedly detached camera that objectifies and dehumanizes the subjects of its gaze. Anna Grimshaw and Amanda Ravetz provide the first critical history and in-depth appraisal of this movement, examining key works, filmmakers, and theorists, from André Bazin and the Italian neorealists, to American documentary films of the 1960s, to extended discussions of the ethnographic films of Herb Di Gioia, David Hancock, and David MacDougall. They make a new case for the importance of observational work in an emerging experimental anthropology, arguing that this medium exemplifies a non-textual anthropology that is both analytically rigorous and epistemologically challenging.

Essays by leading scholars explore communities of professional and nonprofessional journalists. They describe news-making processes ranging from the local to the global digital environment, as well as how news is disseminated and received in a variety of cultural settings. Contributors are S. Elizabeth Bird, Amahl Bishara, Dominic C. Boyer, Dorle Dracklé, Zeynep Devrim Gürsel, Jennifer Hasty, Joseph C. Manzella, Kerry McCallum, Mark Pedelty, Mark Allen Peterson, Ursula Rao, Adrienne Russell, Christina Schwenkel, Jonathan Skinner, Debra Spitulnik, Maria D. Vesperi, Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, and Leon I.

Life histories of corporations and the culture of corporate power

Cultural Critique and the Global Corporation


Edited by Purnima Bose and Laura E. Lyons Afterword by Christopher Newfield

his book examines the stories that corporations tell about themselves—and explores the powerful influence of corporations in the transformation of cultural and social life. Six case studies draw on CEO memoirs, annual reports, management manuals, advertising campaigns, and other sources to analyze the self-representations and rhetorical maneuvers that corporations use to obscure the full extent of their power. Images of corporate character and responsibility are intertwined with the changes in local economy, politics, and culture wrought by globalization and neoliberalism. The contributors to this volume describe the effects of specific corporate practices on individuals and communities and how activists and academics are responding to labor and environmental abuses.

Islamist politics and inflexible leadership in the Arab world

The New Authoritarianism in the Middle East and North Africa
Stephen J. King


tephen J. King considers the reasons that international and domestic efforts toward democratization have failed to take hold in the Arab world. Focusing on Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, and Algeria, he suggests that a complex set of variables characterizes authoritarian rule and helps to explain both its dynamism and its persistence. King addresses, but moves beyond, how religion and the strongly patriarchal culture influence state structure, policy configuration, ruling coalitions, and legitimization and privatization strategies. He shows how the transformation of authoritarianism has taken place amid shifting social relations and political institutions and how these changes have affected the lives of millions. Ultimately, King’s forward-thinking analysis offers a way to enhance the prospects for democracy in the Middle East and North Africa.


Stephen J. King is Associate Professor of Government at Georgetown University. He is author of Liberalization against Democracy: The Local Politics of Economic Reform in Tunisia (IUP, 2003).

he Palestinian national movement reached a dead-end and came close to disintegration at the beginning of the present century. The struggle for power after the death of Yasser Arafat in 2004 signaled the end of a path toward statehood prepared by the Oslo Accords a decade before. The reasons for the failure of the movement are deeply rooted in modern Palestinian history. As'ad Ghanem analyzes the internal and external events that unfolded as the Palestinian national movement became a “failed national movement,” marked by internecine struggle and collapse, the failure to secure establishment of a separate state and achieve a stable peace with Israel, and the movement's declining stature within the Arab world and the international community.

How Arab citizens of Israel perceive and use global media

The Arab Public Sphere in Israel
Media Space and Cultural Resistance

n this pathbreaking study, Amal Jamal analyzes the consumption of media by Arab citizens of Israel as a type of communicative behavior and a form of political action. Drawing on extensive public opinion survey data, he describes perceptions and use of media ranging from Arabic Israeli newspapers to satellite television broadcasts from throughout the Middle East. By participating in this semi-autonomous Arab public sphere, the average Arab citizen can connect with a wider Arab world beyond the boundaries of the Israeli state. Jamal shows how media aid the community’s ability to resist the state's domination, protect its Palestinian national identity, and promote its civic status.

Adapting Islam's most popular tales in art and literature

The Prophet's Ascension
Cross-Cultural Encounters with the Islamic Mi'raj Tales

Edited by Christiane Gruber and Frederick Colby


he tales of the mi'raj describe the prophet Muhammad's journey through the heavens, his encounters with prophets and angels, and his visit to heaven and hell. The tales are among Islam's most popular, appearing in Arabic, Persian, and Turkish literature, and in later adaptations throughout the Muslim world. Often serving as narratives designed to promote the worldview of particular Muslim groups, the tales were also a means for communities to construct rules of normative behavior and ritual practices, and were used to assert the superiority of Islam over other religions. The essays in this collection discuss the formation of this narrative, the mi'raj as a missionary text, its various adaptations, its application to esoteric thought, and its use in performance and ritual.

A watershed event in American religious history

The World’s Parliament of Religions
The East/West Encounter, Chicago, 1893
Richard Hughes Seager
onceived as a magnificent display of the major religions of the world, the 1893 Parliament sought to unite “all religion against irreligion.” A singular moment in the creation of a more pluralistic religious culture in America, it introduced many Americans to Eastern religions and meditative practices such as yoga. Some in the Christian community saw the gathering as a sign of the approaching fulfillment of the missionary’s hope to evangelize the world, while others saw a divided Christendom under threat from the religions of the East. Richard Hughes Seager explores this fascinating event in all its complexities and, in a new preface, summarizes recent research and reflects on religious pluralism in an age of religious extremism.

Fundamental uncertainty in the rabbinic search for justice

Law and Truth in Biblical and Rabbinic Literature
Chaya T. Halberstam
ow can humans ever attain the knowledge required to administer and implement divine law and render perfect justice in this world? Contrary to the belief that religious law is infallible, Chaya T. Halberstam shows that early rabbinic jurisprudence is characterized by fundamental uncertainty. She argues that while the Hebrew Bible created a sense of confidence and transparency before the law, the rabbis complicated paths to knowledge and undermined the stability of personal status and ownership, and notions of guilt or innocence. Examining the facts of legal judgments through midrashic discussions of the law and evidence, Halberstam discovers that rabbinic understandings of the law were riddled with doubt and challenged the possibility of true justice. This book thoroughly engages law, narrative, and theology to explicate rabbinic legal authority and its limits.

Modernity and tradition in the training of American Jewish cantors

The Making of a Reform Jewish Cantor
Musical Authority, Cultural Investment

CD Included


Judah M. Cohen

he Making of a Reform Jewish Cantor provides an unprecedented look into the meaning of attaining musical authority among American Reform Jews at the turn of the 21st century. How do aspiring cantors adapt traditional musical forms to the practices of contemporary American congregations? What is the cantor's role in American Jewish religious life today? Cohen follows cantorial students at the School of Sacred Music, Hebrew Union College, over the course of their training, as they prepare to become modern Jewish musical leaders. Opening a window on the practical, social, and cultural aspects of aspiring to musical authority, this book provides unusual insights into issues of musical tradition, identity, gender, community, and high and low musical culture.

reaking with strictly historical or textual perspectives, this book explores Jewish philosophy as philosophy. Often regarded as too technical for Judaic studies and too religious for philosophy departments, Jewish philosophy has had an ambiguous position in the academy. These provocative essays propose new models for the study of Jewish philosophy that embrace wider intellectual arenas—including linguistics, poetics, aesthetics, and visual culture—as a path toward understanding the particular philosophic concerns of Judaism. As they reread classic Jewish texts, the essays articulate a new set of questions and demonstrate the vitality and originality of Jewish philosophy.

Situates the Neo-Kantian movement within 20th-century philosophy

Neo-Kantianism in Contemporary Philosophy
Edited by Rudolf A. Makkreel and Sebastian Luft


his comprehensive treatment of Neo-Kantianism discusses the main topics and key figures of the movement and their intersection with other 20th-century philosophers. With the advent of phenomenology, existentialism, and the Frankfurt School, NeoKantianism was deemed too narrowly academic and science-oriented to compete with new directions in philosophy. These essays bring NeoKantianism back into contemporary philosophical discourse. They expand current views of the Neo-Kantians and reassess the movement and the philosophical traditions emerging from it. This groundbreaking volume provides new and important insights into the history of philosophy, the scope of transcendental thought, and Neo-Kantian influence on the sciences and intellectual culture.

Engages two provocative contemporary philosophers of religion

Religion, Metaphysics, and the Postmodern
William Desmond and John D. Caputo
Christopher Ben Simpson
illiam Desmond’s original and creative work in metaphysics is attracting more and more attention from philosophers of religion. Putting Desmond in conversation with John D. Caputo, an important philosopher of religion from the Continental tradition, Christopher Ben Simpson casts new light on Desmond’s complex, multifaceted, and nuanced thought. The comparative approach allows Simpson to get at the core of recent debates in the philosophy of religion. He develops a rich understanding of how ethics and religion are informed by metaphysics, and contrasts this approach to the decidedly antimetaphysical stance in Continental philosophy. Religion, Metaphysics, and the Postmodern presents a systematic analysis of Desmond's thought as it advances work on Caputo’s thinking and on the philosophy of religion.

Is religious conservatism compatible with tolerance and pluralism?

Monotheism and Tolerance
Recovering a Religion of Reason
Robert Erlewine
hy are religious tolerance and pluralism so difficult to achieve? Why is the often violent fundamentalist backlash against them so potent? Robert Erlewine looks to a new religion of reason for answers to these questions. Drawing on Enlightenment writers Moses Mendelssohn, Immanuel Kant, and Hermann Cohen, who placed Christianity and Judaism in tension with tolerance and pluralism, Erlewine finds a way to break the impasse, soften hostilities, and establish equal relationships with the Other. Erlewine’s recovery of a religion of reason stands in contrast both to secularist critics of religion who reject religion for the sake of reason and to contemporary religious conservatives who eschew reason for the sake of religion. Monotheism and Tolerance suggests a way to deal with the intractable problem of religiously motivated and justified violence.

Ethical issues and the intellectually disabled

The Faces of Intellectual Disability
Philosophical Reflections

Licia Carlson

“ Will have a significant impact on philosophical bioethics.” —Hilde Lindemann, Michigan State University


n a challenge to current thinking about cognitive impairment, this book explores what it means to treat people with intellectual disabilities in an ethical manner. Reassessing philosophical views of intellectual disability, Licia Carlson shows how we can affirm the dignity and worth of intellectually disabled people first by ending comparisons to nonhuman animals and then by confronting our fears and discomforts. Carlson presents the complex history of ideas about cognitive disability, the treatment of intellectually disabled people, and social and cultural reactions to them. Sensitive and clearly argued, this book offers new insights on recent trends in disability studies and philosophy.

Pragmatism since William James

100 Years of Pragmatism
William James's Revolutionary Philosophy
Edited by John J. Stuhr
illiam James claimed that his Pragmatism: A New Name for Some Old Ways of Thinking would prove triumphant and epoch-making. Today, after more than 100 years, how is pragmatism to be understood? What has been its cultural and philosophical impact? Is it a crucial resource for current problems and for life and thought in the future? John J. Stuhr and the distinguished contributors to this multidisciplinary volume address these questions, situating them in personal, philosophical, political, American, and global contexts. Engaging James in original ways, these 11 essays probe and extend the significance of pragmatism as they focus on four major, overlapping themes: pragmatism and American culture; pragmatism as a method of thinking and settling disagreements; pragmatism as theory of truth; and pragmatism as a mood, attitude, or temperament.

Spiritual, queer, and community identity in 21st-century America

Queer Women and Religious Individualism
Melissa M. Wilcox
elissa M. Wilcox explores the complex spiritual lives of queer women in the Los Angeles area. She takes the reader on a tour of a colorful array of religious and secular groups that serve as spiritual resources for these women—from the well-known Metropolitan Community Churches to Wiccan covens, from the Gay and Lesbian Sierrans to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence. Arguing that these women's stories are exemplary cases of postmodern patterns of religious identity, belief, and practice, Wilcox offers a nuanced analysis of contemporary Western spirituality and selfhood, and a detailed exploration of the history of queer religious organizing in Los Angeles. Queer Women and Religious Individualism is important reading for scholars in religious studies, sociology, women's studies, and LGBT studies.

Gerardo Marti shows us how this unusual church has achieved multiethnicity, not by targeting specific groups, but by providing multiple havens of inclusion that play down ethnic differences.

ealth and the Will of God looks at some of the spiritual resources of the Christian tradition that can aid serious reflection on wealth and giving. Beginning with Aristotle— who is crucial for understanding later Christian thought—the book discusses Aquinas, Ignatius, Luther, Calvin, and Jonathan Edwards. Though the ideas vary greatly, these chapters are organized to facilitate comparisons among these thinkers on issues of ultimate purposes or aspirations of human life; on the penultimate purposes of love, charity, friendship, and care; on the resources available to human beings in this life; and finally on ways to connect and implement in practice our identified resources with our ultimate ends.

How generosity enriches lives and communities

We Make a Life by What We Give
Richard B. Gunderman

“Short, sweet, and a pleasure to read, [this book] reminds us that we are capable of contributing much more when we see ourselves in the company of those who depend on us to make the most of what we have been given.” —Philanthropy News Digest
ccording to an old saying, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” In 22 brief and insightful essays, Richard B. Gunderman shows us that the key to more rewarding giving can be found by looking beyond mere donations of money. Exploring the ethical core of sharing and examining its importance for both those who receive and those who give, here is a book to deepen our understanding of what it means to share wealth.

Guilt, Suffering, and Memory
Germany Remembers Its Dead of World War II
Gilad Margalit Translated by Haim Watzman

“Margalit focuses his criticism on 'reconciliation' narratives—where the Holocaust was remembered alongside German suffering — as a means of eliding the differences between Jewish victims of Nazism and those Germans who died in battle or as a result of bombing and expulsion.” —William Niven, Nottingham Trent University

Guilt, Suffering, and Memory
Germany Remembers Its Dead of the Second World War

Gilad MarGalit
Translated by Haim Watzman

Unresolved tensions in German postwar memorials


ermany’s changing historical memory of World War II and its aftermath, as reflected in the official and public remembrance of the German war dead, exposes an unresolved tension between a discourse of guilt and a discourse of national suffering and victimization. In Germany, under the auspices of the Allied occupation, remembrance honored the victims of the Nazis and those who had fought against the regime. After the partition of Germany, a new culture emerged, memorializing the civilian dead and fallen German soldiers. Despite the fierce ideological rivalry between East and West Germany, however, certain similarities existed. The political leaderships who shaped these cultures ceased to confront their citizens with the question of guilt and instead depicted the German people as victims. In Guilt, Suffering, and Memory—whose Israeli edition was awarded the Jacob Bahat Prize for best original book—Gilad Margalit discusses the official remembrance ceremonies for the German war dead, the memorials erected to commemorate them, the public discussions of these disparate cultures, and their treatment in postwar German literature and film.

The cultural politics of commemorating war

Heroes and Victims

Remembering War in Twentieth-Century Romania
Maria Bucur
eroes and Victims explores the cultural power of war memorials in 20th-century Romania through two world wars and a succession of radical political changes—from attempts to create pluralist democratic political institutions after World War I to shifts toward authoritarian rule in the 1930s, to military dictatorships and Nazi occupation, to communist dictatorships, and finally to pluralist democracies with populist tendencies. Examining the interplay of centrally articulated and locally developed commemorations, Maria Bucur's study engages monumental sites of memory, local funerary markers, rituals, and street names as well as autobiographical writings, novels, oral narratives, and film. This book reveals the ways in which a community's religious, ethnic, economic, regional, and gender traditions shaped local efforts at memorializing its war dead. x 9¼

Food and social transformation in eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union

Food and Everyday Life in the Postsocialist World
Edited by Melissa L. Caldwell Foreword by Marion Nestle Afterword by Elizabeth C. Dunn
cross the Soviet Union and eastern Europe during the socialist period, food emerged as a symbol of both the successes and failures of socialist ideals of progress, equality, and modernity. By the late 1980s, the arrival of McDonald’s behind the Iron Curtain epitomized the changes that swept across the socialist world. Not quite two decades later, the effects of these arrivals were evident in the spread of foreign food corporations and their integration into local communities. This book explores the role played by food—as commodity, symbol, and sustenance—in the transformation of life in Russia and eastern Europe since the end of socialism. Changes in food production systems, consumption patterns, food safety, and ideas about health, well-being, nationalism, and history provide useful perspectives on the meaning of the postsocialist transition for those who lived through it.

Women as political actors in eastern Europe today

Women in Power in Post-Communist Parliaments
omen in Power in Post-Communist Parliaments examines the life and work of women who have reached positions of political power after the end of communism in Europe. It explores the roles they have adopted, the relationships they have cultivated, and the agendas they have pursued. In contrast to much of the literature on women in post-communist states, this volume treats the issues comparatively, in six countries with interesting differences—the Czech Republic, Germany (with a focus on parliamentarians from the former GDR), Slovenia, Bulgaria, Poland, and Russia. Interviews with and written statements by the “women in power” give voice to their experiences as political actors within an environment of volatile economies and new foreign engagements.

The story of modern Russian feminism and Russian women's studies

Russian Feminism

Twenty Years Forward


Written and produced by Beth Holmgren Directed by Igor Sopronenko

his 35-minute DVD portrays how Russians and Americans collaborated in reviving women’s activism in the USSR and post-Soviet Russia and in creating Russian women’s studies on both sides of the ocean. The film is based on interviews with 18 experts who were engaged in this project, including activists and scholars. Participants assess the project’s successes and failures since the days of glasnost and discuss the stiff challenges that Russian feminists face in the Putin-Medvedev era. An accompanying booklet with a short summary of Russian women’s history contextualizes the film.

Musical life in the church and court of Muscovy

Musical Cultures in Seventeenth-Century Russia
Claudia R. Jensen
laudia R. Jensen presents the first unified study of musical culture in the court and church of Muscovite Russia. Spanning the period from the installation of Patriarch Iov in 1589 to the beginning of Peter the Great's reign in 1694, her book offers detailed accounts of the celebratory musical performances for Russia's first patriarch—events that were important displays of Russian piety and power. Jensen emphasizes music's varied roles in Muscovite society and the equally varied opinions and influences surrounding it. In an attempt to demystify what has previously been an enigma to Western readers, she paints a clear picture of the dazzling splendor of musical performances and the ways in which 17th-century Muscovites employed music for spiritual enlightenment as well as entertainment.

Insights into the organ works of a 20th-century master

Performing Messiaen's Organ Music
66 Masterclasses

Jon Gillock
livier Messiaen (1908–1992) was the most influential composer for the organ in the 20th century. Shaped by French tradition as well as the innovations of Debussy, Stravinsky, and Bartók, Messiaen developed a unique style that would become his signature. Using Messiaen's own analytical and aesthetic notes as a point of departure, Jon Gillock offers detailed commentary on the performance of Messiaen’s 66 organ works. Gillock provides background information on the composition and premiere of each piece, a translation of Messiaen's related writings, and a systematic explanation of performance considerations. Gillock also supplies details about the organ at La Trinité in Paris, the instrument for which most of Messiaen’s pieces were imagined.
Jon Gillock studied with Messiaen at the Paris Conservatory and premiered several of his late organ works in the United States and Japan. Gillock has performed several concerts on the organ at La Trinité in Paris, the church at which Messiaen served as organist for more than 60 years.

The dynamic story of the Mexican population of the United States

A History of Mexicans in the United States

New and Expanded Edition
Second Edition

Manuel G. Gonzales
ewly revised and updated, Mexicanos tells the rich and vibrant story of Mexicans in the United States. Emerging from the ruins of Aztec civilization and from centuries of Spanish contact with indigenous people, Mexican culture followed the Spanish colonial frontier northward and put its distinctive mark on what became the southwestern United States. Shaped by their Indian and Spanish ancestors, deeply influenced by Catholicism, and tempered by an often difficult existence, Mexicans continue to play an important role in U.S. society, even as the dominant Anglo culture strives to assimilate them. Thorough and balanced, Mexicanos makes a valuable contribution to the understanding of the Mexican population of the United States—a growing minority who are a vital presence in 21st-century America.

eratopsids, or horned dinosaurs, are a group of large-bodied, quadruped herbivores, which lived roughly 65–70 million years ago. Part of a larger group of dinosaurs that includes stegosaurs, ankylosaurs, ornithopods, and pachycephalosaurs, the better-known members of the ceratopsids include centrosaurs, chasmosaurs, and triceratops. Easily distinguished by the horns and frills on their skulls, ceratopsids were one of the most successful of all dinosaurs. This volume presents a broad range of cutting-edge research on the functional biology and behavior, systematics, paleoecology, and paleogeography of the horned dinosaurs, including descriptions of newly identified species. A CDROM includes a census of recovered specimens and a history of ceratopsian discoveries in Canada.

Revelations about the lives of provincials in the Roman Empire

Lives behind the Laws
The World of the Codex Hermogenianus

Serena Connolly


n this exploration of the administration of law and its role in the lives of ordinary people in the northern provinces of the Roman Empire, Serena Connolly draws upon a rich but little-known legal collection from the late 3rd century known as the Codex Hermogenianus. The codex is composed of imperial responses to petitions sent to Rome, written by a team of the emperor’s legal experts. These petitions and responses provide a wealth of information about provincial legal administration and the lives of the non-elite petitioners. The man who prostituted his wife, the mother whose malicious son undersold her farm, and the slaves who posed as free men to get a loan are just a few of the lives to encounter. Lives behind the Laws makes a valuable contribution to Roman social, political, and legal history.

As a kid I loved watching Julia Child, James Beard, and Graham Kerr and seeing them go from black-and-white to color. I learned a lot of kitchen basics from my grandparents on both sides, my folks, and my early mentors, the Gregorys and the Lemleys. I knew I was headed in the right direction, but I had no idea where I was going. I ran away from Indiana as soon as I got out of high school. I had been working in kitchens every summer for the previous 3 years. It was a lot more fun than getting your eyes sliced open while detasseling corn! The kitchen was my refuge, and I was like a sponge soaking up every bit of knowledge I could. I went to Johnson & Wales University in Providence, Rhode Island, to find a path to follow . . . 4 years of culinary school and hotel/restaurant management, T.A. and fellowship stints at the school, elegant dining on ships cruising around Manhattan, French fine dining in Rye, New York, and finally, I was off to finishing school in France and Belgium. All this training took me back to Manhattan and the awards and rewards I bragged about earlier. My trips throughout Europe, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean have inspired me in countless ways. The people I’ve met, the stories I’ve heard, the foods I’ve eaten, the joys and sadness I’ve shared--they are all part of me. Experiences like these are like seasonings that are rubbed and massaged into the meat of who we are. Some stick and are absorbed deeply into our fibers, while others simply fall off during the cooking, but all flavor the person we have brought back home. FARMfood is all about that: going “home” and getting back in touch with locally produced foods while cooking with a global palette of flavors picked up along the way, and then sharing these culinary travels with my family, old friends, and new folks I meet every day at FARMbloomington, my restaurant in Bloomington, Indiana.

FARMfood is all about going “home” .
