The making of public historical culture in the American West; 1880-1910, the role of historical societies.
Laugesen, Amanda. Edwin Mellen Pr., ©2006 245 p. $109.95 Looking at the cases of Oregon, Kansas, and Wisconsin, Laugesen (history and American studies, Flinders U., Australia) seeks to demonstrate the crucial role played by state historical societies in the formation of the public historical consciousness, paying particular attention in their position of mediators between the local and the national. She is also concerned with the processes of professionalization underwent by the state historical societies as they moved from organizations founded by pioneers and antiquarians to organizations more intimately connected with academic historical production and the effect of this transformation on the stories they told about the history of the American west.

Between the real and the ideal; the Accademia degli Arcadi and its garden in eighteenth-century Rome.
Dixon, Susan M. Univ. of Delaware Press, ©2006 156 p. $55.00 Although the members of the Accademia degli Arcadi largely supported restraint, elegance and Enlightenment ideals, they were also well aware of their proximity to the court and the papal curia and the tensions those views, particularly the participation of women, would create. Therefore the Arcadians expressed themselves in a less-direct way, in their meeting gardens, as well as more directly in theater. Dixon (art history, U. of Tulsa) describes how Arcadian developments of space and the physical world expressed their views, how their friends and enemies perceived those views as expressed in their garden and landscape, and how the Arcadians came to be regarded as social reformers. As the gardens are currently under renovation this is particularly timely. Distributed by Associated University Presses. AZ105 1-55238-172-2

Mind technologies; humanities computing and the Canadian academic community.
Title main entry. Ed. by Raymond Siemens and David Moorman. (Media studies) Univ. of Calgary Press, ©2006 317 p. $44.95 (pa) The “mind technologies” Siemens (humanities computing, U. of Victoria, Canada) and Moorman (a senior policy advisor with the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Canada) reference in the title to this collection of 18 papers is a term that refers to the “computer-assisted tools, methodologies, and structures that capture the ways in which those in the arts and humanities carry out the practices associated with their disciplines.” Presented in the belief that the Canadian academic community has made an internationally significant contribution to this realm, the collection contains case studies of innovative projects and activities that have resulted, including contributions to areas of archival representation and communication of results; technologies associated with critical inquiry and analysis; and activities of knowledge transfer, training, education, and support. Distributed in the US by Michigan State U. Press.

Topics include influences on museum practice, government policy, the public access debate, prioritizing audience groups, building capacity for sustainable audience development through networks and partnerships, developing web resources, evaluation, funding, applied research, audience advocacy, creating environments for learning, museum professions, and a hint of where museums will go from here. Topics include responses on such issues as developing the inclusive model, digital technologies, and taking collective responsibility for making museums accessible.

The figure of the road; deconstructive studies in humanities disciplines.
Morris, Christopher D. Peter Lang Publishing Inc, ©2007 276 p. $74.95 Morris (English, Norwich U., Vermont) packs literature, religion, philosophy, visual art and popular culture on this road trip to where artists and writers anticipate the aporia or “pathless place.” Given the aporia is a world understood as wholly figural, he analyzes the path of American literature to that not-so-distant place, the linear tropes leading to it by de Man and Derrida, the implications for theology both within the Christian Acts of the Apostles and the Four Roads of Taoism, the reflexivity of the road film and its influence on the intellect and soul, the myriad paths of popular culture that are in fact only one, whether they be painted as televised baseball, the graphic novel or the video game, the figural road as university in Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s The Gates, and in a nimble conclusion, the ultimate fate of curriculum and ethics.

Opportunity; optimizing life’s chances.
Morris, Donald. Prometheus Books, ©2006 461 p. $28.00 In this accessible and wide-ranging text, Morris examines the nature of opportunity from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. The focus is on the identification of high-end opportunities—those crucial decisions which have the power to alter the course of a life. The volume concludes with a selection of aphorisms and quotations on the topic of opportunity. A former instructor of philosophy, Morris is currently a professor of accounting at Eastern New Mexico U. B126 2006-001102 978-0-87220-709-7

Common sense; its history, method, and applicability.
Ledwig, Marion. Peter Lang Publishing Inc, ©2007 157 p. $62.95 Ledwig (philosophy, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm) not only defends common sense, as many philosophers have done before her, but also explores such matters as how far it generalizes, whether it can be found in proverbs and game theory, and how it helps people survive childhood until real thinking develops.

Socrates and the irrational.
Hans, James S. U. of Virginia Press, ©2006 225 p. $29.50 Socrates has long been enthroned as the epitome of Greek rationalism, but Hans (English, Wake Forest U.) finds that his ideas were a bit more complex than the Platonic and later equation that rational is good and irrational is bad. He looks closely at the Ion, the Apology, the Phaedrus, and the Republic dialogues. B395 2005-034699 978-1-4051-1521-6

A companion to Plato.
Title main entry. Ed. by Hugh H. Benson. (Blackwell companions to philosophy) Blackwell Publishing, ©2006 473 p. $149.95 Perhaps if we thought of Plato as more flesh and blood than marble on a pedestal, we would reach a better understanding of what he had to say. This collection does exactly that in its 29 articles by leading scholars, and it also shows how that same flesh and blood has influenced that of millions of others. Contributors work through descriptions of the Platonic method and the dialog form and Platonic epistemology, metaphysics, psychology, ethics, politics and aesthetics, concluding with his legacy in articles about learning about Plato from Aristotle, the impact on Plato in Hellenistic philosophy, and his influence on Jewish, Christian and Islamic thought. Topics include form and the dialogs, definition and forms, methods of dialectic, ignorance, recollection, perception, knowledge, cosmology, language, mathematics, religion, paradox, the soul, eros, pleasure, the unity of the virtues, justice, goodness, the law and the arts.

(Phenomenology & mind; v.7) Ontos Verlag, ©2006 323 p. $115.95 Scholars of philosophy or the natural sciences grapple with the problem of consciousness following the non-reductionist path broken by Karl Popper, John C. Eccles, and others—a tradition they feel needs to be polished up again and set on prominent display. Their topics include the impulse to reductionism, consciousness and the intentional awareness of instantiable, a radical externalist approach, and the near-death experience and the failure of materialism. Distributed in North and South America by Transaction Publishers.

Culture and philosophy in the age of Plotinus.
Edwards, Mark. (Classical literature and society) Duckworth, ©2006 198 p. $31.00 (pa) Edwards (patristics, Oxford U.) examines four third-century Romans who would have called themselves philosophers—Plotinus, Longinus, Porphyry, and Iamblichus—and the cultural and intellectual milieu in which they wrote. He is not so concerned with the elements of their philosophy itself, but does summarize parts where necessary to his description of the Platonic tradition, literature and dogma, magic and occult sciences, and other features of the time.

Body and story; the ethics and practice of theoretical conflict. (reprint, 2005)
Terdiman, Richard. Johns Hopkins U. Press, ©2006 265 p. $25.00 (pa) In order to explore the clash of theories in the human sciences, Terdiman (literature and the history of consciousness, U. of California-Santa Cruz) orchestrates a collide between two conflicting theories: Enlightenment materialism and Post-structuralist textualism. His goal is not to find a resolution between them, but to investigate the nature of a world in which multiple and even contradictory theories have explanatory or interpretive traction. The 2005 edition was cloth bound. B945 2006-921347 978-1-932236-90-3

The dicts and sayings of the philosophers.
Title main entry. Ed. by John William Sutton. (Middle English texts series) Medieval Institute Pub., ©2006 163 p. $15.00 (pa) The long prose text purporting to be a compendium of lore collected from biblical, classical, and legendary philosophers and sayings, traveled through many lands and languages. It became popular in England during the 14th century, and this Middle English version was printed by Caxton in 1477. In this edition, words possibly difficult for learners are glossed at the bottom of the page, and compiled in the end matter. Explanatory notes, a bibliography of other editions and secondary works, and a thematic index are included. B745 2006-052166 978-90-04-15386-8

Michael Polanyi; the art of knowing.
Mitchell, Mark T. (Library of modern thinkers) ISI Books, ©2006 195 p. $25.00 Hungarian-born Polyanyi (1891-1976) was a physical chemist, but as wars wracked Europe and the world, his attention turned from science to philosophy. Treating him as a political philosopher, Mitchell (government, Patrick Henry College, Virginia) looks at his thought, particularly his insistence that a new conception of knowledge must be introduced that acknowledges the reality of moral and spiritual ideals.

Hume on causation.
Beebee, Helen. Routledge, ©2006 236 p. $88.00 Beebee (philosophy, U. of Birmingham) challenges the conventional views of Scottish philosopher David Hume’s (1711-76) thoughts on the metaphysics of causation. After an introductory chapter, she looks at his discussion of relations and a priori reasoning, causal reasoning, and the idea of necessary connection—the order in which he presented the ideas. Then she explores the interpretive disputes surrounding his ideas, develops a projectivist interpretation, and discusses the skeptical realist interpretation. B1608 978-0-8264-8639-4

Knowledge triumphant; the concept of knowledge in medieval Islam, 2d ed.
Rosenthal, Franz. (Brill classics in Islam; v.2) BRILL, ©2007 355 p. $90.00 Arabic and Semitic scholar Rosenthal (1914-2003) retired from Yale University in 1985. He argues here that knowledge is the quickening concept in Islamic civilization, and explores its myriad manifestations and functions. His topics include human knowledge and divine knowledge, the plural of knowledge, Shi’ah notions of knowledge, knowledge as light in Sufism, and monographs in praise of knowledge and the educational literature. The first edition was published by Brill sometime before 1970; this second is slightly revised. B765 2006-047330 978-90-04-15431-5

Rethinking Mill’s ethics; character and aesthetic education.
Heydt, Colin. Continuum Publishing Group, ©2006 165 p. $120.00 Given the rise of neoliberalism and all its variants and anti-variants, and ever-present concern about utility as it applies to governance, it is no wonder that Heydt (philosophy, U. of South Florida) feels compelled to set readers straight on the riches behind the works that Victorians would have caught in an instant but modern readers probably have missed completely. Heydt illuminates and provides contexts for Mill’s work on aesthetics and life as art, the contrast with Bentham and the related issues of internal culture, the ethics of Mill that includes narrative and imagination as well as the “proper religion” of humanity, family and gender relations within the social and political dimensions of aesthetic education, and that form of education’s social and political dimensions in the industrial economy and the workplace. Now you have no excuse for misappropriating the thoughts of Mill again. B1616 2005-037800 978-0-8264-7540-4

From a topical point of view; dialectic in Anselm of Canterbury’s De Grammatico .
Boschung, Peter. (Studien und Texte zur Geistesgeschichte des Mittelalters; v.90) BRILL, ©2006 346 p. $134.00 Historiographers of the 19th and early 20th century considered Anselm (1033-1109) to be the founder of the characteristic theological method of the 13th century, but failed to pay much attention to his De Grammatico, which is an introduction to dialectic. At least part of the reason, says Boschung, is that the scholars lacked sufficient training in logic to understand the work’s logical theory. He considers such aspects as its influence, its structure, its fallacies, Anselm’s sources, and his semantic distinctions. The study served as Boschung’s 2006 Ph.D. dissertation in philosophy at the University of Zurich. B808 2006-008838 0-7546-5670-5

Personal autonomy in society.
Oshana, Marina. Ashgate Publishing Co., ©2006 190 p. $99.95 Oshana (philosophy, U. of Florida) does not attempt a precise taxonomy of autonomy in its many guises, but offers an admittedly worldly, naturalistic interpretation that is significantly different from both the newHumean and the Kantian models. She emphasizes the nature and function of autonomy, and the conditions of its existence within peoples’ daily lives. B824 2006-017968 978-0-8047-5338-8

Idealist political philosophy; pluralism and conflict in the absolute idealist tradition.
Tyler, Colin. (Continuum studies in British philosophy:) Continuum Publishing Group, ©2006 220 p. $120.00 Tyler (political theory, U. of Hull) combats idealism’s reputation as otherworldly, unrealistic, and dangerously conservative as he analyzes the work of Hegel, Green, Caird and Bosanquet. Using newly-discovered British idealist manuscripts, he concentrates on such issues as Hegel’s take on the formation of states and the nature of war, Green on franchise reform and its application to his “working theory of life,” Caird’s work on history and Sittlichkeit, Bosanquet on individuality and the sate, and the applications of idealism to such current preoccupations as cultural diversity. In the process he notes the inevitability of idealism creeping in without notice on such issues as the design of civil institutions, political and social pluralism, and the tragedy of human progress.

Interpretation and difference; the strangeness of care.
Bass, Alan. Stanford U. Press, ©2006 194 p. $24.95 (pa) In his 2000 Difference and Disavowal: The Trauma of Eros, Bass, a psychoanalyst practicing in New York City, presented a clinical perspective on resistance to the interpretation of psychoanalysis as therapy. Here he uses that work as a foundation to explore the philosophical issues involved in such resistance. Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida are the pivots of his account. He does not provide an index.

Ashgate Publishing Co., ©2006 248 p. $99.95 Scholars of English from Britain and the US look at the life and work of British intellectual Hulme (1883-1917), who appeared suddenly in 1902 and took a commanding position in the modernist milieu there.

Foucault 2.0; beyond power and knowledge.
Paras, Eric. Other Press LLC, ©2006 240 p. $29.00 (pa) Upon the publication of the 3000 pages of Foucault’s Dits et écrits, one Foucalt scholar commented that it still would not be possible to come to a full evaluation of Foucault’s place in 20th century intellectual life without access to the 13 semester-length lecture courses offered by Foucault at the Collège de France. Having studied these lectures, Paras (Minda de Gunzburg Center for European Studies, Harvard U.) agrees wholeheartedly, observing that the lectures show the development of Foucault’s thought at a time when he was producing little material in print, yet was formulating some of the foundations upon which he would rest Discipline and Punish and The Use of Pleasure and also shed light on the transformation that would place Foucault’s later thought in opposition to his structuralist ideas of the “death of the subject” and his Archaeology of Knowledge.

He in turn was permitted to comment on each analysis. Among the topics they toss about are austerity and openness, selfknowledge and inner space, acting in the light of appearances, and Aristotle’s use of prudential concepts.

Lacan’s medievalism.
Labbie, Erin Felicia. U. of Minnesota Press, ©2006 264 p. $25.00 (pa) Labbie (English, Bowling Green State U.) argues that French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan (1901-81) can be considered a medievalist because he cites courtly love poetics as a means of developing and articulating his theory of desire, and because his methodologies follow those established by the medieval scholastic scholars who sought to determine the potential for the human subject to know and to represent real universal categories.

Althusser; the detour of theory.
Elliott, Gregory. (Historical materialism book series; v.13) BRILL, ©2006 410 p. $116.00 Originally released by Verso in 1987 as the revised edition of the doctoral thesis of Elliott (PhD, Balliol College, Oxford, UK), this study provided an account of the intellectual career of structural Marxist theorist Louis Althusser (1918-1990). The study focuses primarily on Althusser’s later, more directly political phase, placing it, as Althusser would wish, in their particular historical context. Although Elliott now recognizes a number of deficiencies in the study, including a misreading of Althusser’s attitude toward Eurocommunism and levity in discussing Maoism, he has resisted the urge to revise the text beyond expanding the bibliography of Althusser’s published writings, adding a long postscript in which he takes stock of Althusser’s posthumously published work, some incidental stylistic revisions, and updated references.

Deleuze and Guattari’s philosophy of history.
Lampert, Jay. Continuum Publishing Group, ©2006 178 p. $120.00 Lampert (philosophy, U. of Guelph) works through Deleuze’s philosophy of time, including the “pure past” to build a coherent philosophy of history that includes both Deleuze’s and Guanttari’s major thoughts on the subject. He examines the three syntheses of time—the contracted present, the virtual co-existence of the past, and the dark precursors of the future, moving to the problems inherent in historical chronology, the delicate margins of causes such as “quasi-causes” and “becoming casual,” and the theory of beginnings, and closes with the co-existing levels of temporality. Major works examined here include Anti-Oedipus, A Thousand Plateaux, Difference and Repetition and The Logic of Sense. B2430 2006-021222 978-0-252-03142-7

Diary of a philosophy student; v.1: 1926-27.
De Beauvoir, Simone. Ed. by Barbara Klaw et al. Trans. by Barbara Klaw. (The Beauvoir series) U. of Illinois Press, ©2006 40 p. $40.00 Written when she was a student of 18-19 years at the Sorbonne and translated into English for the first time in this edition, Beauvoir’s diary contains the youthful thoughts, desires, and confusion one would expect from a teenager, but it is also full of quotations and thoughts about the many books she was reading and the art she enjoyed seeing, providing an insight into the literary and cultural trends of Paris in this era. Verlaine, Gide, Merleau-Ponty, and many others are cited and discussed; Klaw (French, Northern Kentucky U.) translates their quoted passages into English. Heavily annotated and concluding with a bibliography and detailed index, this volume offers scholars and students of the philosopher a rich resource for Beauvoir’s early life and influences.

Leibniz reinterpreted.
Strickland, Lloyd. Continuum Publishing Group, ©2006 172 p. $110.00 British historian of philosophy Strickland joins many modern scholars in asking how someone obviously as intelligent as Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (1646-1716) could be so unreservedly optimistic about the world and history that Voltaire made a fortune ridiculing him for it. He looks closely at what exactly the German philosopher meant when he said that this was the best of all possible worlds, saying that previous scholars who have tried did not focus their attention closely enough or for long enough.

The aesthetic in Kant, a critique. (reprint, 2004)
Kirwan, James. (Continuum studies in philosophy) Continuum Publishing Group, ©2006 200 p. $39.95 (pa) Kant’s Critique of the Power of Judgment is both seminal in the study of aesthetics and problematic in its assertions about taste and desire. Kirwan (Anglo-American studies, Kobe U.) re-examines Kant’s text to find new solutions, working from recent research on the Critique and its contexts. He finds new relationships between the subjective and the universal in taste, the nature and the dependency of the sublime to the observer, and the issue of the “true” and “false” sublime, and the relationship of free or dependent beauty to what Kant called “fantastic desire.” This is a paperbound reprint of a 2004 book.

The collapse of philosophy and its rebirth; an intellectual history with special attention to Husserl, Rickert and Bakhtin.
Nikiforov, Vladimir. Edwin Mellen Pr., ©2006 435 p. $129.95 A Russian scholar of logic and mathematics who fled the Soviet Union in 1988, Nikiforov describes a circle of thinkers who inhabited a shared Russian-German cultural space beginning in the 1890s, and their concern with individualism. His topics include phenomenology as the descriptive study of mental phenomena, the supra-individualist against the individual, and responsibility as the attitude of participation in a being-event.

A companion to Kant.
Title main entry. Ed. by Graham Bird. (Blackwell companions to philosophy; 36) Blackwell Publishing, ©2006 530 p. $149.95 Bird (emeritus, philosophy, U. of Manchester, UK) presents 33 essays that provide a survey of the philosophy of Immanuel Kant (1724-1804). The focus, naturally enough, is on Kant’s most celebrated and influential works, the Critiques, but issues from earlier in his career are discussed as well, including Kant’s cosmology and his debts to Liebniz and to the British Empiricists. Papers exploring the Critique of Pure Reason discuss transcendental idealism, the transcendental aesthetic, Kant’s refutation of problematic idealism, his critique of rational psychology, his philosophy of mathematics, and the metaphysical foundations of natural science. The philosopher’s moral philosophy is the subject of the next set of papers, which explore his account of freedom; formulations of the moral law; metaphysics of morals; and conceptual accounts of liberty, equality, and independence, among other topics. The Critique of Judgment is discussed in the next four papers, which explore such issues as rational judgment and the structure of nature, aesthetic theory, and the philosophical significance of Kant’s biological teleology. Finally, the influence of Kant is explored in the writings of Hegel, Husserl, Heidegger, and the philosophers of the 20th century analytical tradition, among others. B3068 2005-028101 0-8047-5136-6

Heidegger’s philosophy of religion; from God to the gods.
Vedder, Ben. Duquesne University Press, ©2007 336 p. $21.50 (pa) Vedder (philosophy, Radboud U., the Netherlands) argues that in the philosophy of unrepentant Nazi Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) there is a concept of religion in which truth is a given that moderates religion’s principal truth claims. Others have discussed at length Heidegger’s claim that Christian philosophy is impossible, he says, so he focuses instead on unfold his implicit thinking on religion from out of his own philosophy.

The keywords of Martin Heidegger; a philosophical-lexical analysis of Sein und Zeit .
Griffiths, David B. Edwin Mellen Pr., ©2006 364 p. $119.95 Part of Heidegger’s project, it seems, was to defy traditional logic but not replace it with a new system. Often the result is incredibly obscure, almost an attempt to cease communication rather than engender it. Here, rather than offering a mere concordance, Griffiths, who formerly taught history and humanities at York U. in Toronto, places the terms under consideration in a significant context, allowing each to comment upon each other in a remarkably logical fashion. He has chosen close to 200 of Heidegger’s terms significant to Sein und Zeit, calling in experts and alternate or inconsistent nomenclature when needed, and clearly explaining for the layman why, for example, certain commentators considered some terms negative while others thought them to be positive. The result is a very helpful guide to this nearly opaque work, and Griffiths remains true to the text and objective throughout. B3279 2006-023110 978-0-7425-5282-1

The radical enlightenment of Solomon Maimon; Judaism, heresy, and philosophy.
Socher, Abraham P. (Stanford studies in Jewish history and culture) Stanford U. Press, ©2006 248 p. $55.00 Scholars of his own time and later have generally accepted Maimon’s (1754-1800) account of his rejection of Talmudism and turn to Kabbala and Maimonidean philosophy as a movement from the provincial PolishLithuanian Judaism of his youth to German modernity. Socher (Jewish studies, Oberlin College) is not so sure. He finds Maimon’s self-representation to be a site of uneasy heretical hybridity, and describes his transformation not as geographical or intellectual but as a cultural translation.

Martin Heidegger; paths taken, paths opened.
Smith, Gregory Bruce. (20th century political thinkers) Rowman & Littlefield, ©2007 333 p. $29.95 (pa) Unrepentant Nazi Heidegger (1889-1976) opposed every element of liberal and cosmopolitan society and technological civilization, admits Smith (political science, Trinity College), so why should anyone pay attention to anything he said? First, he answers, because Heidegger was brilliant and his attitudes toward liberalism are so well founded that they must be answered; and second, because his work is having an impact in the world, and ignoring it will not make it go away.

A critical introduction to the philosophy of Gottlob Frege.
Rosado Haddock, Guillermo E. Ashgate Publishing Co., ©2006 157 p. $99.95 Rosado Haddock (philosophy, U. of Puerto Rico) responds to the recent flow of work that pins Frege as a epistemologist in the Kantian tradition or a philosopher of mathematics by taking a balanced approach to the various and often opposing schools of thought and assessing Frege in terms of his whole philosophy rather than specific issues. He begins with the Begriffsschrift in terms of its identity statements and functions, then moves to the first and second parts of Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik, working from the need for clarification of the nature of mathematics all the way to numbers of properties of objects, the nature of geometry, and the attempts at a definition of “number.” He examines the basic distinctions in sense and referent, and function and object, then closes with the fundamental philosophical issues in Grundgesetze and commentary on the Zermelo-Russell paradox, the controversy on the foundations of geometry, and Frege’s abandonment of logicism.

Nietzsche’s On the Genealogy of Morals ; critical essays.
Title main entry. Ed. by Christa Davis Acampora. (Critical essays on the classics) Rowman & Littlefield, ©2006 337 p. $29.95 (pa) One of the projects of this opaque but increasingly popular text is to ask ourselves how we can know ourselves better. In these 20 papers international contributors do just that, examining genealogy in general, specific passages, later applications, and the work’s impact on politics, ethics and aesthetics. Topics include re-evaluation and the turn to genealogy, interpretation in Nietzsche’s second Untimely Meditations and the title work, the metaphors of genealogy, the will to power combined with the problem of a past, slave morality, agent and deed, why it matters how we read the work, finding the übermensch, Nietzsche’s aphorism and the art of the polemic, remaining strangers to ourselves, nihilism as will to nothingness, the structure of an ambivalence between Nietzsche and Jews, virtue ethics, and the “beasts of prey.” Critiques cover myth and enlightenment, Nietzsche and Deleuze, and approaches by way of Foucault and Derrida.

Decadence of the French Nietzsche. (reprint, 2005)
Brusseau, James. Lexington Books, ©2006 229 p. $26.95 (pa) This is a paperbound reprint of a 2005 book. In philosophy, decadence studies truths dedicated to the intensification of thought. The best truth is that which incites the most thinking, so right and wrong lose relevance and thought no longer exists to pursue truth; truths exist to accelerate thinking. So asserts Brusseau (philosophy and letters, Mexican National U.) as he examines two themes: the conditions of French Nietzscheanism from Nietzsche through Deleuze, and what philosophy looks like when the traditional relation between thinking and truth are reversed. He also examines whether in decadence truth is in actually sacrificed for thinking. By way of application of decadent theory, he also examines how decadence has emerged from both French Nietzscheanism and many of the objections to it. B3376 2006-022764 978-0-7425-4191-7

Their topics include paratextualism in Prefaces and contemporary literary culture, author creation in Writing Sampler, his confessional discourse in Three Discourses on Imagined Occasions, and the experience of time by the side of the grave.

Wittgenstein’s philosophical investigations; critical essays.
Title main entry. Ed. by Meredith Williams. (Critical essays on the classics) Rowman & Littlefield, ©2007 238 p. $29.95 (pa) Eight essays by US and British scholars of philosophy comment on the later work of Ludwig Wittgenstein (1889-1951). Reflecting roughly the development in his posthumously published Philosophical Investigations, they consider reference and meaning, rules and their application, the interiority of mind and the alleged uses of private languages, and necessity and grammar. For the benefit of readers new to the work, references are included to classical philosophy texts that help clarify the text. B3918 2006-048722 978-90-04-15467-4

The metaphysics of religion; Lucian Blaga and contemporary philosophy.
Jones, Michael S. Fairleigh Dickinson U.P., ©2006 287 p. $57.50 The work of Romanian philosopher Blaga (1895-1961) was suppressed at the height of his career by the rise of the Communist Party and the creation of the Popular Republic, says Jones (philosophy, Liberty U.), and so is not well known outside of his own country. He argues that Blaga’s philosophy is a systematic attempt to account of all human experience, and has contemporary relevance to Anglo-American philosophy.

Arnold Geulincx’ Ethics with Samuel Beckett’s notes.
Title main entry. Ed. by Han van Ruler et al. Trans. by Martin Wilson. (Brill’s studies in intellectual history; v.146: Brill’s texts and sources in intellectual history; v.1) BRILL, ©2006 368 p. $129.00 Both drawing and diverging from the humanistic intellectual climate of his time, French philosopher Geulincx (1624-69) sought to reinvest the classical approach to ethics with an input of Christianity. Wilson, who also translated his Metaphysics recently, presents the first English edition of the Latin De Virtute et Primus Eius Proprietatibus. The work was appreciated for its lyric qualities as well as its doctrines by 20th-century Irish poet Beckett. B3999 2006-013872 978-0-7391-1601-2

Jewish philosophy and psychoanalysis; narrating the interhuman.
Oppenheim, Michael. Lexington Books, ©2006 261 p. $70.00 Oppenheim (religion, Concordia U.) compares ideas about the domain of the interhuman of Jewish philosophy with the field of the interpersonal identity of Freudian psychoanalysts, finding a rich but partially hidden vein of insight on the life of persons with other persons. After an extended and energetic apology to nearly all who specialize in each of the two fields he explains the Jewish philosophical narratives of the interhuman as they are found primarily in Rosenzweig, Buber and Levinas, then moves to psychoanalytic narratives of development from some of its chief practitioners, moving on to the mutual contexts of gifts and giftgiving in terms of engendering social relationships in a multitude of symbolic forms within class and ethnicity, familial relations, the public and the private, and gender. He then works through the twin perceptions of transference and transcendence, closing with an analysis of the work of Irigaray. BC171 978-90-420-2130-3

Between philosophy and religion; Spinoza, the Bible, and modernity; v.1: Hermeneutics and ontology.
Polka, Brayton. Lexington Books, ©2007 277 p. $80.00 Polka (emeritus humanities and social and political thought, York U.) begins a two-volume set engaging Benedictus Spinoza ((1632-77) as a thinker who is at once biblical and modern. Understanding how he makes the God of the Bible the subject of knowledge that is at once sufficient and necessary for humans being, he argues, demonstrates how the Bible and modernity are not fundamentally opposed, but profoundly related to each other. The second volume considers politics and ethics. B3999 2006-008837 0-7546-5618-7

The logic of expression; quality, quantity, and intensity in Spinoza, Hegel, and Deleuze.
Duffy, Simon. (Ashgate new critical thinking in philosophy) Ashgate Publishing Co., ©2006 284 p. $89.95 Duffy (philosophy, U. of Sydney) explores how French philosopher Gilles Deleuze (1925-95) strategically redeployed the thought of Jewish-Dutch philosopher Benedictus de Spinoza (1632-77), especially in relation to how German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) interpreted him. Both of the later philosophers, he argues, adapted the first into their own systems, and Deleuze also incorporated Hegel’s adoption of Spinoza.

Essays in logic and ontology.
Title main entry. Ed. by Jacek Malinowski and Andrzej Pietruszczak. (Poznan studies in the philosophy of the sciences and the humanities; 91) Editions Rodopi, ©2006 394 p. $104.00 Continuing the work of those prominent in the Lvov-Warsaw school between the world wars Jerzy Perzanowski, head of the Department of Logic at Nicolaus Copernicus U. strongly encouraged those investigating philosophical problems by means of logical methods. This collection is one of the outstanding results. The eight papers here include a comprehensive analysis of making logic the basis of ontology, a presentation of a logical theory of ontological modality, and an essay on the ontology of what is not there. Others address the problem of adopting inconsistency by investigating the relations between contradiction and negation in paraconsistent logic, Moore’s paradox within the logic of acquisition, formal tools for systematic investigation of Strawson’s notion of presupposition, social relations in classical analytical interpretive sociology and a proof that methods from standard first courses in logic can be used to test connectives from natural language.

The triumph of the therapeutic; uses of faith after Freud.
Rieff, Philip. ISI Books, ©2006 290 p. $18.00 (pa) Rieff’s groundbreaking work, first published by Harper and Row in 1966, caught the scent of the cultural changes that came ripe in the next 40 years. In a series of essays that fully represent his conservative point of view, Rieff finds irony, in that this therapeutic age, which identifies itself as fiercely committed to the growth of human potential and personal fulfillment, is actually anti-therapeutic and even, in some respects, anti-human. He regards Freud as the key transitional figure from the Judeo-Christian to the purely therapeutic, and takes the broad view on Freud’s legacy, changes in Western culture, community, the analytic attitude, the replacement of the theologian by the therapist, including the roles of martyr and myth-maker, and the passage to a nearly completely therapeutic culture, complete with all the nearly unheralded irony.

Enlightenment and emancipation.
Title main entry. Ed. by Susan Manning and Peter France. (The Bucknell studies in eighteenth-century literature and culture) Bucknell University Pr., ©2006 233 p. $51.50 Two of the most important elements of modernity, enlightenment and enlightenment are studied separately, to the detriment of our understanding of what modernity actually is. Here contributors ask whether enlightenment actually was a force for emancipation and come up with a range of answers including Condorcet’s measure of the abolition of slavery in the French colonies, Voltaire’s role in toleration and emancipation, the relative enlightenment of Rousseau and Burke and the resulting impact on paradox and rhetoric, the manipulated roar of the crowd on the issue of liberty, civility in Scotland, science and sedition in Bourbon South America, the anachronism of the queen consort, emancipation by women’s pens, emancipation by women’s radical politics, Diderot’s delicate approach to the critical, musical enlightenment, the recovery or at least the creation of a necessary past, and the very real and ever-present second face of the enlightenment.

Lexington Books, ©2006 222 p. $27.95 (pa) Based on papers presented at an April 2005 conference of the same name, this book contains 11 chapters examining cultural, political, religious, ethical, and policy dimensions of the “war on terror.” Watson (American and Western political thought, Saint Vincent College) has organized the material into sections that consider the nature of the clash between “certain versions of Islam and/or Arab culture and the West,” ethical and religious reformulations of “just war” and ethical limits of liberal democracy “in the face of an enemy committed to its overthrow,” and the political “hearts and minds” aspects of the Western war against its declared enemies.

Beautiful things in popular culture.
Title main entry. Ed. by Alan McKee. Blackwell Publishing, ©2007 231 p. $59.95 Scholars and other pop culture analysts explore such consumer icons as superheroes in comics, shoes, crime fiction, “post-gay” websites, and a villain in the Xena: Warrior Princess TV show that they highly rate. The most unusual of the 13 essays treats why a 1943 propaganda film about a massacred village can be considered beautiful. McKee (creative industries, Queensland U. of Technology) situates these attractions in the context of critical debates over high vs. mass culture aesthetics. The few b&w photos include self-styled pop princess Kylie Minogue, and the beautifully styled Ducati 916 motorbike. CB465 2006-048126 978-0-07-301903-1

The last crusade; Americanism and the Islamic reformation.
Palmer, Michael A. Potomac Books, Inc., ©2007 273 p. $26.95 Surveying the history of the Islamic world from its origins to the present time, Palmer (history, East Carolina U.) has constructed this narrative primarily for the purpose of arguing that Islam is essentially a civilization that has failed in the project of modernization. That, and not imperial or other transgressions by the West, is the reason that Islamism of Osama Bin Laden resonates within the Islamic world and sets it in conflict with the forms of modernization known as Americanism. He predicts years of conflict that will only end when the world has converted to Islam or the West has been able to impose modernism on the Islamic world.

Oxbow Books, ©2006 134 p. $48.00 (pa) As an informed stroll through any western museum will attest, archeology has become inextricably bound with ethics and considerations of cultural sovereignty. Drawn from a seminar series held from October to December 2004, and motivated in part by the looting of cultural objects in recent military conflicts, these nine essays reflect the long and strong debate amongst archeologists, museums, and the legal antiquities trade. Their contributors describe the case for an open public debate on cultural artifacts, changes in collecting over the past 50 years, accessibility to the public and to scholars, new legal and voluntary codes, views from the antiquities and coin trades, the debate on cultural property, recent UK regulations against illicit trade in cultural objects, and lessons on repatriation learned from the Glasgow experience.

Rethinking wetland archaeology.

Duckworth, ©2006 167 p. $22.00 (pa) The relevance and practicality of wetland archaeology has come under criticism from many voices in mainstream archaeology, say the authors, both UK-based wetland archaeologists. In this book, they suggest an agenda for redirecting the discipline in order to integrate it into broader geographical, cultural, and theoretical frameworks. They describe important discoveries and figures, illustrate wetlands’ contributions in the study of landscapes, and assess deficient theories including those favoring “dryland” populations while overlooking the possibility of communities that lived and worked in bogs and marshes. Finally, a discussion of politics and practice in wetlands archaeology portray the challenges to establishing the discipline’s credibility and how its practitioners may do so.

An illustrated history of the Knights Templar.
Wasserman, James. Destiny Books, ©2006 191 p. $19.95 (pa) After their founding in 1119 they served crusade after crusade, won significant battles, gathered power in the name of their faith and on their own, and eventually became amongst the most admired and feared of men. That is exciting enough, but in 1307 their order collapsed and their leaders were burned under charges of heresy and perversion. Why would this ill-fated private army become the object of so much rumor, resentment, repression and research? Enthusiast Wasserman traces the reasons why the Knights Templar continue to inspire tales both tall and small and serve as the model for myriad secret organizations by inquiring into the nature of their contacts with saints, kings, heretics and the original Assassins. Along with more than 170 color and monochrome illustrations he describes the history of the order, its significance in modern thinking, and its treasures. Distributed by Inner Traditions.

Early modern autobiography; theories, genres, practices.
Title main entry. Ed. by Ronald Bedford et al. U. of Michigan Press, ©2006 309 p. $70.00 This collection brings together researchers from literary studies, women’s studies, history and politics in order to examine the practice of autobiographical writing and self-representation in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. Rejecting the critical tradition that insists on the 16th century as a key moment in self-understanding, the contributors develop new readings of significant autobiographical works while also suggesting the importance of many texts and contexts that have rarely been analyzed in detail. As a whole, the volume asserts that early modern writing displays a constant interplay between the grand ideals of self and the recording of quotidian events and observations.

Praeger Security International, ©2007 450 p. $175.00 This two-volume set grew out the 2004 eponymous conference on battlefield archaeology, the third to address the field and the first to be held in association with the American Battlefield Protection conference. The 24 papers presented open with discussions of techniques, theories, and methodologies for the infant discipline, but the bulk of the papers report the results of research at battlefield sites dating from the Roman Battle of Varus in 9 AD to the Battle for Hill 209 during the Korean War. A concluding chapter takes stock of the state of the discipline and future directions. D51 978-0-7156-3448-6

Battlefield; decisive conflicts in history.
Title main entry. Ed. by Richard Holmes and Martin Marix Evans. Oxford U. Press, ©2006 376 p. $30.00 Holmes (military and security studies, Cranfield U. and the Defence Academy of the UK) has taken the battle entries from The Oxford Companion to Military History, of which he was general editor and presents them here, revised according to recent scholarship. He has also added new articles in order to provide somewhat greater balance than the earlier work, which emphasized events in Europe and North America in the past three centuries. The entries typically describe the events and results of strategically important battles in major wars in rather broadbrush strokes. The material covers battles in Ancient Egypt to the 2003 Anglo-American invasion of Iraq.

Anastasius I; politics and empire in the late Roman world.
Haarer, F.K. (ARCA; classical and medieval texts, papers and monographs; no.46) Francis Cairns Ltd., ©2006 351 p. $130.00 Striding boldly where her post-modern colleagues fear to tread, Haarer (classics, King’s College, London) presents an imperial biography. She uses the reign of the Roman emperor Anastasius, 491-518, as a framework within which to narrate and evaluate the political, economic, military, and religious policies pursued at the turn of the sixth century. The Isaurian revolt, foreign policy in the east and west, the search for religious compromise, administration and domestic policy, and building are the areas she considers. The study is revised from her 1998 Ph.D. dissertation for Oxford University. Distributed in the US by the David Brown Book Company. D128 2006-389491 1-84415-360-6

The medieval soldier. (reprint, 1971)
Norman, Vesey. Pen and Sword, ©2006 278 p. $16.99 (pa) Norman describes how the function of the military changed from the beginnings of feudalism with the early Lombards and Franks, moving to the Vikings and Saxons, getting down to such details as how chain mail was actually made and used. He describes the rise of chivalry and the process of becoming a knight, the growth of the military orders and their influence in the Crusades, the campaigns of the Crusades and their dependence on technologies of arms and armor, and the ships that brought them to those campaigns.

Title main entry. Ed. by John Merriman and Jay Winter. (Scribner library of modern Europe) Thomson Gale, ©2006 3135 p. $595.00 Encompassing the era from 1914 to the present, the entries of this 5volume reference provide an often sobering insight into the many cataclysmic events of Europe’s recent past.

Many entries are biographies—of writers, artists, filmmakers, political figures, and thinkers. Entries are included for individual countries and for some major cities, particularly where their history during this era was of widespread importance. Other categories include economic history, concepts and ideas, daily life, law, and philosophy. A thematic list of contents and a very substantial comprehensive index are included in volume five.

Ibn al-Athir, Izz al-Din. Trans. by D.S. Richards. (Crusade texts in translation; 13) Ashgate Publishing Co., ©2006 401 p. $99.95 The Complete Work of History begins with creation and ends abruptly in 629/1231-2 when Ibn al-Athir’s died. This volume takes up the story as he introduces his narrative reference to the background and initial progress of the First Crusade, and ends with the death of Zanki, which may be understood to mark the end of a stage in the response of Islam to the phenomenon of the Crusades. It is not concerned with the Crusades alone, however, but ranges far as to Baghdad, to Turkish nomads invading Transoxania, and to the rise and fall of dynasties in the Maghreb and Spain. Richards provides footnote explaining references and sometimes literary features. D214 2005-054498 1-57488-971-0

War in European history, 1494-1660; the essential bibliography.
Black, Jeremy. (Essential bibliographies) Potomac Books, Inc., ©2006 116 p. $14.95 (pa) Black (history, U. of Exeter, UK) believes that there are two, equally important, areas of military history: accounts of the military, its organization, weaponry, and conflicts and consideration of the relationship between war and wider themes of international competition, statebuilding, and social developments, among others. Both of these themes are present in his brief historiographical essay surveying the main topics of European warfare from 1494 to 1660. The essay is followed by a bibliography which point readers towards what Black believes are the most important scholarly works on the topic.

French strategic and tactical bombardment forces of World War I.
Martel, René. Trans. by Allen Suddaby. Ed. by Steven Suddaby. Scarecrow Pr., ©2007 461 p. $60.00 (pa) Martel, who fought the Great War from the sky as an observer and bombardier, first published this most important and detailed description of the French art of bombardment in 1939. It is only now that his work has been translated into English and edited, revealing how strategy and tactics in French aviation warfare developed as the war progressed to include simple bomb-dropping, creating and effectively using bombsights, targeting based on intelligence, flying in formation and as escorts, and using aerial photography to assess damage. The able and accessible translation gives the general reader better insight into the non-technical aspects of the world of the bombardier, as Martel also writes of the propaganda war about bombing on both sides and closely describes the work of pioneers in war aviation to make a new technology fit a war fought on very traditional principles.

Focusing on the areas of love, sex, and marriage, she describes how the war’s disruption of ordinary home life and the subsequent entry of women into the workforce allowed for a relaxing of the social restrictions that had formerly kept women in check.

Weintraub, Stanley. Free Press, ©2006 201 p. $25.00 The Allied troops huddled and died in mist and mud, trapped in pockets by driving rain and snow. No one had expected Hitler to amass forces secretly and break through the lines of the Ardennes forest, or the fierce fighting that was to be called the Battle of the Bulge, and the Allied troops desperately lacked food, supplies, arms and ammunition. The only way to get supplies was by air. The only way to win was to conduct air strikes. If only the weather would clear. Then George S. Patton strode into a Luxembourg chapel and began a private prayer with “Sir, whose side are you on?” The weather cleared.

The AEF way of war; the American army and conflict in World War I.
Grotelueschen, Mark Ethan. Cambridge U. Pr., ©2007 387 p. $75.00 Taking his cue from military historians who have begun to investigate the role of ideas in the conduct of war, Grotelueschen (US Air Force Academy) examines the relationship among command, doctrine, and operational adaptation in the World War I campaigns of the American Expeditionary Forces. His narrative centers on the ideological war waged within the AEF between commanders who adhered to the traditional ideas of the prewar army based on infantry manpower, the rifle and bayonet, maximization of maneuver, and hopes for decisive operational or strategic results and those who increasingly appreciated the modern, industrial ideas more prevalent in the European armies based on the integration of modern weaponry, maximization of firepower, and methodical attacks on specific units in pursuit of modest operational results. In analyzing the AEF’s doctrinal war, he focuses on the organization, training, and combat operations of four of the most active divisions. D570 2006-026200 0-313-33181-2

United States v. George W. Bush et al.
De la Vega, Elizabeth.

The Puritan dilemma; the story of John Winthrop, 3d ed.
Morgan, Edmund S. (The library of American biography) Pearson / Longman, ©2007 210 p. $20.00 (pa) In a biography of Winthrop (1588-1649), Morgan argues that, like people in all ages, he was concerned with the question of what responsibility a righteous an owes to society. When society follows a course someone considers morally wrong, he says, most people contrast the options of withdrawing and keep their principles intact, or staying, but the governor of a Puritan colony had another answer.

Nantucket’s people of color; essays on history, politics and community.
Title main entry. Ed. by Robert Johnson. Univ. Press of America, ©2006 254 p. $35.00 (pa) Ten American academics, researchers, and independent scholars—all participants in the James Bradford Ames Fellowship Program at the U. of Massachusetts over the past ten years—contribute ten chapters exploring the relationship between African Americans and European-Americans on Nantucket, from the 18th century to the 20th century. The essays analyze and contrast questions of ethnicity, politics and community on the island, thus revealing the strengths and problems faced by those on Nantucket regarding issues of inclusion, freedom, justice and morality. At the same time they document the lives of courageous people of color who created productive communities and institutions despite the challenges of extremely difficult circumstances.

The big book of Bush cartoons!
Title main entry. Ed. by Daryl Cagle and Brian Fairrington. Pearson Technology Group, ©2005 210 p. $14.95 (pa) In this history of the Bush presidency in cartoons, international editorial cartoonists have a field day with the 2000 campaign and the administration’s stands on topics including Hurricane Katrina, Enron, gay marriage, religion, and Iraq and the war on terrorism. The book begins with an overview of trends in such drawings, in which Bush seems to be shrinking. His lame duck term offers plenty of material for a sequel. E903 2006-017826 978-1-58322-743-5

Impeach the president; the case against Bush and Cheney.
Title main entry. Ed. by Dennis Loo and Peter Phillips. Seven Stories Press, ©2006 326 p. $17.95 (pa) Rather than draw up an example bill of impeachment and defending it, as other authors calling for the impeachment of President George W. Bush have done, Loo (sociology, California State Polytechnic U.) and Phillips (sociology, Sonoma State U.) have identified 12 reasons for impeachment and recruited knowledgeable authors to address each one. The reasons they cite include the common charges of lying the country into the war in Iraq, directing the torture of captives, acting negligently with regards to Hurricane Katrina, and illegally spying on Americans, as well as accusations that have been left off of most discussions of impeachment, including overthrowing the democratically elected President of Haiti, use of signing statements to undermine congressional legislative intent, excessive secrecy, negligently ignoring the implications of Peak Oil, stealing the 2000 and 2004 elections, and violating the constitutional separation of church and state by bringing theocratic ideologies into the machinery of government.

Encyclopedia of Appalachia.
Title main entry. Ed. by Rudy Abramson and Jean Haskell. University of Tennessee Press, ©2006 1832 p. $79.95 Adopting the definition of Appalachia used by the US federal government, comprising 410 counties from New York to Mississippi, editors Abramson (former Washington correspondent for the Los Angeles Times) and Haskell (retired director of the Center for Appalachian Studies and Services, East Tennessee State U.) include some 2000 cross-referenced entries in their encyclopedia of the region in some 30 thematic sections themselves grouped under the headings of landscape, people, work and the economy, cultural traditions, and institutions.

Washington and the world; 2001-2005.
King, Llewellyn. Univ. Press of America, ©2006 295 p. $35.00 (pa) Syndicated columnist King collects his columns and commentaries from January 2001 through September 2005. As the title suggests, the focus is on the politics of Washington and (secondarily) the world. Unsurprisingly, much of the focus is on the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, the problems of terrorism and “homeland security,” and corporate scandals, but these issues do not exhaust the list of issues discussed.

Abraham in arms; war and gender in colonial New England.
Little, Ann M. (Early American studies) U. of Pennsylvania Pr., ©2007 262 p. $45.00 The close attention to attitudes concerning manliness and gender among both the English, whose histories have dominated perceptions of this era, and the Native Americans and French who they fought, provides the reader with a thought-provoking twist to received ideas about colonial New England. Little (history, Colorado State U.) examines sermons, letters, satirical prints, and other first-hand accounts of the wars, skirmishes, and daily encounters of English and non-English. Detailed treatment is devoted to imprisonment on both sides and the impact dressing in English or Indian clothing had on the wearer’s self-image. The result is a fascinating and nuanced view of a profoundly anxietyridden period in American history.

Before Harlem; the Black experience in New York City before World War I.
Sacks, Marcy S. (Politics and culture in modern America) U. of Pennsylvania Pr., ©2006 231 p. $49.95 The early years of black migration to New York City, according to Sacks (history, Albion College), were the crucible within which the patterns of black life and race relations in the city were forged, as white elites and poor immigrants reacted to the perceived threat of black migration and as blacks formed their own geographic and ethnic divisions, created their own organizational infrastructure and support networks, and evolved cultural patterns within a hostile environment. She explores this history in the years 1880-1915 in terms of the cultural, economic, social, and political patterns that defined black life before Harlem.

Title main entry. Harry N. Abrams, ©2006 734 p. $29.95 This book offers a terrific browse for inhabitants of NYC as well as those on the outside. The photos of the city were selected from the many millions in the New York Times photo archives and are presented in an appealing, horizontal format (9.5x6.5″). No attempt was made to cover every subject or every part of the city; images were chosen simply because they stand out in some way—as newsworthy or as particularly memorable or evocative. Each is accompanied by a caption or a paragraph or two setting the context. The rationale for the arrangement is a bit mysterious (not thematic, not chronological), but there is an index for those seeking something specific. F128 2006-021404 0-8204-6915-7

From the miners’ doublehouse; archaeology and landscape in a Pennsylvania coal company town.
Metheny, Karen Bescherer. University of Tennessee Press, ©2007 305 p. $45.00 Current scholarship about company towns generally depict workers and their families as helpless victims cast hither and yon by economic and historical forces, says Metheny (archaeology, Boston U.). Suspecting that there was more to their experience than that, she examines issues of worker agency and working-class behavior in the mining town of Helvetia, Pennsylvania from 1891 to 1947. Oral and documentary sources and architectural, material, and archaeological evidence are among her sources. F208 2006-025282 0-8204-8651-5

As part of a project to construct alternative Southern curricula, her aims are four-fold: “1) unsettling prohibitive nostalgia so as to disrupt rather than solidify identity/place norms; 2) homeplace as a site for the interrogation of the construction of identity rather than the consoling, pacifying mirror of identity; 3) queer Southernness, exemplified in the conjunction rather than the opposition of fundamentalism and queer desire; 4) grace that shatters rather than absolves traditional raced, classed, and gendered notions of Southern identity.” F220 2006-022009 978-1-58465-589-3

Latinos in the new South; transformations of place.
Title main entry. Ed. by Heather A. Smith and Owen J. Furuseth. Ashgate Publishing Co., ©2006 292 p. $89.95 Over the past decade, Latinos have emerged as one of the fastest- growing ethnic populations in the southern states of the U.S. Twenty American academics contribute 13 chapters to a contemporary and multi-disciplinary examination of the reasons for, impacts of and responses to Latino migration into the U.S. South.

A portrait of Elizabeth Willing Powel (1743-1830).
Maxey, David W. (Transactions of the American Philosophical Society; v.96, pt.4) Am. Philosophical Society, ©2006 91 p. $24.00 (pa) In life, as on canvas, she was strong-minded and sincere, an influential member of early Philadelphia salon society, an advisor to the nation’s first president and a dedicated correspondent. As rendered in artists’ paint she is a serious woman with rather strong features, apart from a slightly receding chin, and a decidedly cerebral presence. However, Maxey has found a rendering of the indomitable Elizabeth Willing Powel to be particularly illuminating about the experiences behind that impassive face, as a mother whose sons died early in childhood, a woman who spent much of her life a widow, and a talented and influential person who slipped quietly into obscurity upon her death. Maxey uses Powel’s own correspondence and other primary documents to discern how that particular rendering, a funerary allegory, made its way back to the Powel manse and expressed her grief as no other way could.

A main goal is to reveal the importance of technical, scientific, and commercial communication during the Renaissance. Virginia as a garden, explaining a failure, the Roanoke Indians, and surveying techniques are among his topics.

Devil’s Gate; owning the land, owning the story.
Rea, Tom. U. of Oklahoma Pr., ©2006 307 p. $26.95 It has an unlikely name, the Sweetwater River valley, and it occupies one of the most rugged of spaces in the rugged state of Wyoming. In it or near it masses of Native Americans hunted, a woman was hanged, migrants froze to death, and thousands of pioneers paused at the valley’s Independence Rock on their way to Oregon. Who owned the land then and owns it now has control of a vast repertoire of American history.

The author finds that the process of social integration for third-plus- generation Mexican Americans shares many elements with that of third- plus-generation European Americans. However, social forces related to ethnic concentration, social inequality, and identity politics have combined to make ethnicity for Mexican Americans more fixed across generations than it has been for other groups with multiple- generation histories in the U.S. F826 2006-019189 0-9788748-0-3

Zanjani, Sally. (Wilbur S. Shepperson series in Nevada history) U. of Nevada Press, ©2006 222 p. $29.95 In the middle of the nineteenth century the people who came to or came through Nevada did not necessarily do so with guns blazing. Some came as farmers, including a group of African Americans who made themselves successful in the Carson Valley.

Empire’s edge; American society in Nome, Alaska, 18981934.
Jones, Preston. U. of Alaska Press, ©2007 158 p. $19.95 (pa) They were closer to Siberia than to New York, but those who came to Nome in its relatively late gold rush never forgot from whence they came. Jones (history, John Brown U.) shows how and why the white folk who left their homes for adventure in the north managed to bring their roots along with them and build an all-American small-town atmosphere in tundra, trackless frontiers and harbors frozen most of the year. The result was American popular music, flu pandemics, the Depression, high school football and women’s garden clubs nestling alongside grizzled prospectors’ cabin lifestyles and desperate efforts by Native Americans to retain their culture. The result is a cautionary tale about the imposition of empire by way of culture as well as an interesting story of mutual survival that took a long, long time to resolve itself in the cold.

Title main entry. Ed. by Brian Loveman.

The country case studies he presents attempt to answer that question by reviewing American policy towards Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Brazil in the post-Cold War years and describing reactions to those policies by Latin American political and economic actors, including the growing social movements of the region. In addition to the country studies, a number of papers discuss the overall security and defense policy of the United States and the European Union toward the Andean region.

He traces the development of these varying narratives of the nation from the ancient peoples of Mesoamerica through the post-Revolutionary era. His work focuses how cultural influences of national and ethnic identity influenced evolving concepts of history and national memory amongst different contending groups of actors.

Cullather, Nick. Stanford U. Press, ©2006 176 p. $17.95 (pa) When the first edition was published in 1999, says Cullather (history, Indiana U.), his study concerned a secretive episode in the cold war in Central America, but now it reveals an early precedent for regime change and the global path of action pursued in the war on terror.

Now we are citizens; indigenous politics in postmulticultural Bolivia.
Postero, Nancy Grey. Stanford U. Press, ©2007 294 p. $24.95 (pa) Indigenous political organizing in Bolivia symbolically culminated recently with the December, 2005 election of Evo Morales, an indigenous Aymara, to the presidency and, perhaps more importantly, indigenous movements are now widely recognized as playing a vanguard role in Bolivia’s resistance to the dictates of neoliberalism. Postero (anthropology, U. of California at San Diego) offers a window into the new Bolivian politics of indigeneity by analyzing the activities of Guaraní leaders involved in debates over national identity, multiculturalism, neoliberalism, and democracy at the local, municipal, and regional levels.

Planning the past; heritage tourism and post-colonial politics at Port Royal.
Waters, Anita M. Lexington Books, ©2006 125 p. $18.95 (pa) Waters (sociology and anthropology, Denison U.) presents a study of Port Royal, Jamaica, to explore how one post-colonial society has reconstructed its national history and grappled with its colonial past. Coverage includes Port Royal’s attractions as a site for development planning, the range of meanings discovered in its history, how it is perceived by different social and economic constituencies, how the telling of its history has changed over the years since Jamaica became an independent nation, why so much planning has remained unrealized, how the social memories of area residents compare with official versions of history, and what can be learned by an ethnographic approach to heritage tourism development. For students of historiography, piracy, Caribbean history and politics, and heritage tourism. F2122 2006-000864 978-1-55876-387-6

Razor’s edge; the unofficial history of the Falklands War.
Bicheno, Hugh. Weidenfeld & Nicolson, ©2006 838 p. $37.50 This is an unabashedly pro-British and pro-Thatcher narrative of the war between Argentina and Britain over the Falklands Islands, that focuses primarily on the military aspects of the war. While the author blames Argentine aggressiveness and perceptions of British weakness (justified in the case of many British politicians, the author argues) for the war, he is not beyond praising occasional Argentine officers for bravery and military competence on criticizing British officials and officers for incompetence, lack of planning, and other sins. His coverage of the air, sea, and land engagements of the war is detailed and comprehensive and attempts to understand the thinking of decision-makers on both sides of the war and at the different levels of command.

In this autobiography, he reflects on his formative experiences, education, and political career. This reprint of a volume originally published in 1968 features a new introduction by Colin Palmer (Princeton U.). F2161 2006-001496 978-1-55876-401-9

Space and history in the Caribbean.
Lara, Oruno D. Trans. by Christine Ayorinde. Markus Wiener Pub., ©2006 166 p. $24.95 (pa) From the perspective of the New Archeology that challenges ethnocentric and colonial views, Lara (founder, Center of Carribean-American Research, U. of Paris), treats the Caribbean’s geographical and historical factors as they relate to the slave trade and current socioeconomic crises in a region that has long been exploited but not really discovered or conquered by Europeans. The book includes a map, historical and demographic data, and recommended readings. Originally published in French in 1986 as Les Caraïbes by Presses Universitaires de France.

Documents; artifacts of modern knowledge.
Title main entry. Ed. by Annelise Riles. U. of Michigan Press, ©2006 243 p. $65.00 Pivoting on the document as one particular ethnographic artifact, mostly US anthropologists explore how ethnographers conceive, grasp, appreciate, and see patterns rather than engage in the experimentation and analysis that are standard methodology in the social sciences. Documents were chosen as the lens because of their very centrality to social sciences, and so as an extreme example of how ethnographic knowledge differs from other types of knowledge.

Warfare and society; archaeological and social anthropological perspectives.
Title main entry. Ed. by Ton Otto et al. Aarhus University Press, ©2006 557 p. $83.95 Over the past few decades, military historians have begun to look at the social aspects of war, but the archaeologists and anthropologists here find that even these historians treat war as something set aside from other practices. Seeking to show how war is instead an outgrowth or extension of fundamental features of a society, they cover conceptions of warfare in Western thought and research, pre-state societies, the state, discourse and identity, and weaponry and material culture. Their time frame stretches from Neolithic Britain and Ireland to Bosnia in the 1990s. GN549 963-05-8284-8

Ethnographic fieldwork; an anthropological reader.
Title main entry. Ed. by Antonius C. G. M. Robben and Jeffrey A. Sluka. (Blackwell anthologies in social & cultural anthropology; 9) Blackwell Publishing, ©2007 616 p. $89.95 As any student of cultural and social anthropology knows, fieldwork based on participant observation lies at the very heart of the discipline. Rather than simply present a compendium of fieldwork methods, Robben (anthropology, Utrecht U., the Netherlands) and Sluka (anthropology, Massey U., New Zealand) have produced an anthology that is intended to provide students with an overall context for fieldwork by gathering classic and contemporary writings presenting qualitative, subjective, and reflexive perspectives on fieldwork that will simultaneously illustrate the broad range of approaches, methods, problems, problems, experiences, and ethical issues involved. Thirty-eight readings are presented in sections covering fieldwork beginnings; fieldwork identity; fieldwork relations and rapport; perspectives of the “Other;” fieldwork conflicts, hazards, and dangers; fieldwork ethics; multi-sited fieldwork; sensorial fieldwork; reflexive ethnography; and fictive fieldwork and fieldwork novels.

Neo-nationalism in Europe and beyond; perspectives from social anthropology.
Title main entry. Ed. by Andre Gingrich and Marcus Banks. Berghahn Books, ©2006 303 p. $25.00 (pa) Prompted in part by the near-simultaneous rise of far-right parliamentary neo-nationalist parties in Europe, editors Gingrich (social anthropology, U. of Vienna, Austria), Banks (visual anthropology, U. of Oxford, UK), and their contributors undertook to analyze these movements through an anthropological lens that focuses on questions of historical consciousness, ideologies of identity, globalization, and the symbolism of nationalism. After a pair of chapters address theoretical and methodological concerns, case studies of neo-nationalist movements in Norway, Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Austria, Italy, and France are presented. These are followed by more general discussions of European neo-nationalism and a pair of comparative chapters discussing India’s Hindu-identity Bharatiya Janata Party and new rightists in Australia.

The Cambridge handbook of acculturation psychology.
Title main entry. Ed. by David L. Sam and John W. Berry. Cambridge U. Pr., ©2006 551 p. $50.00 (pa) Thirty-six international academics and researchers contribute 31 chapters to an edited text compiling and systemizing the current state of the art by exploring the broad international scope of acculturation.

Muslim diaspora; gender, culture, and identity.
Title main entry. Ed. by Haideh Moghissi. Routledge, ©2006 238 p. $120.00 Episodic or consistent unity between Islamic communities in the West has more to do with their current situation than with a shared religion or culture, argue social scientists. They challenge the notion of a single homogeneous Islamic culture in 14 papers, all but two from a May 2004 conference in Toronto. Among the recurring notions that rise are that identity is always constructed in relation to others, and diaspora itself as an agent of social and cultural change especially for women.

Van Slyck, Abigail A. (Architecture, landscape, and American culture series) U. of Minnesota Press, ©2006 296 p. $34.95 Van Slyck (art history, Connecticut College) offers an architectural history of children’s summer camps in North America from 1890-1960, while viewing the environment as something socially constructed for campers and their parents.

She discusses social and cultural trends that influenced the camp phenomenon, those who owned, operated, and built them, and issues relating to race, gender, and class that affected their development. Her approach, which views architecture as a process, is a cultural one that considers the natural environment, outdoor areas, structures, program activities, and the use of Native American motifs. Many period photos are examined, as well as brochures, construction documents, and other literature. Family, well-baby, special-needs, and skill-based camps are excluded. GV193 978-0-7689-2445-9

Kusz, Kyle. (Intersections in communications and culture; v.14) Peter Lang Publishing Inc, ©2007 214 p. $29.95 (pa) Kusz (kinesiology, U. of Rhode Island) sees media representations of white male athletes like Andre Agassi and Lance Armstrong and emerging white dominated sports such as NASCAR as evidence of a cultural “revolt” seeking to reestablish white hegemony by establishing a narrative of “other” whiteness that helps defuse the challenges to white normativity and supremacy in American culture. This cultural revolt is not some conscious plan on the part of white athletes, rather it constituted by and constitutive of a more pervasive white cultural revolt that has been taking place since at least the 1990s.

Sports in society; issues & controversies, 9th ed.
Coakley, Jay. McGraw-Hill, ©2007 676 p. $88.13 (pa) In this textbook, Coakley (U. of Colorado, Colorado Springs) outlines the role of sport in society, using sociology as a lens. Chapters, which present sociological research and theory, are organized around issues and their relationships to everyday life, including the economy, religion, the media, politics, class, race, and gender. Aimed at college students who have not taken courses in sociology or sport-science, this edition has been rewritten and updated in terms of statistics, and shortened by placing additional materials on the related website. Additions include boxes that address sports and people with disabilities, discussions of health and obesity and deviance, more on performance-enhancing substances, player-fan violence and sexual misconduct, gender ideology, genetic issues, media rights, and other topics. Coakley’s objective is to make sports more democratic and accessible. GV709 2006-021460 0-313-32453-0

The economics of association football; 2v.
Title main entry. Ed. by Bill Gerrard. (An Elgar reference collection) Edward Elgar Publishing, ©2006 928 p. $425.00 Gerrard (sport management and finance, Leeds U. Business School, UK) brings together 53 seminal and contemporary academic articles on the economics of association football (soccer), from the first 1969 study of the retain-and-transfer system by Peter J. Sloane to a number of works first appearing in the literature in 2003. In the first volume of the two-volume collection, papers explore determinants of attendance demand at different levels of analysis; examine the “sporting production function” (the relationship between team performance and playing and coaching inputs), focusing on the technical efficiency of the sporting production function and the impact of managerial change on team performance; and analyze the players’ labor market and transfer system, paying particular attention to the role of anchor-and- adjustment valuations and the impact of 1995’s Bosman free agency ruling by the European Court of Justice on the econometric analysis of transfer fees. The second volume contains papers that explore how the promotion-and-relegation (based on sporting performance) league structure of European football, which contrasts with the fixed- hierarchy structure of most North American sports leagues, influences economic competitive balance between leagues; examine industrial performance as a function of the relationship between wage costs and team performance and the relationship between team performance and team revenue; and discuss betting and the informational efficiency of markets. Since the bulk of the preceding concerns British football, the second volume also includes a small selection of international contributions to the economics of football. GV840 978-0-9539840-3-9

Ambassadors in pinstripes; the Spalding world baseball tour and the birth of the American empire.
Zeiler, Thomas W. Rowman & Littlefield, ©2006 217 p. $24.95 (pa) Zeiler (history, U. of Colorado, Boulder) relates how, in 1888 and 1889, two baseball teams, toured the world under the sponsorship of Albert Spalding, and places their story in the context of American imperialism. He describes their “expression” of free enterprise, modern communication and transport, culture, and nationalistic values. He discusses the teams in the context of market capitalism and business ethics while in Chicago, ideas about the new American West and transportation and communications as he follows them to Hawaii, questions of identity while in Europe, and nationalism upon their return to the US.

Sports mega-events; social scientific analyses of a global phenomenon.
Title main entry. Ed. by John Horne and Wolfram Manzenreiter. (Sociological review monographs) Blackwell Publishing, ©2006 199 p. $34.95 (pa) At the same time that competition among cities to host sports megaevents, such as the Olympics and World Cup, become more fierce, the evidence of economic and other benefits of hosting becomes less convincing. This collection of specially commission ed essays investigates that conundrum, asking why governments and cities bid to host these events and if the events ever deliver the benefits that their proponents proclaim. Horne (Scottish Centre for P.E., Sport and Leisure Studies, U. of Edinburgh) and Manzenreiter (East Asian Studies, U. of Vienna) introduce the essays with an overview of the sociology of sports.
