Jewish Identity and Civil Rights in America

Product : Jewish Identity and Civil Rights in America
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : What does it mean to be Jewish? This ancient question has become a pressing civil rights controversy. Despite a recent resurgence of anti-Semitic incidents on American college campuses, the U.S. Department of Education's powerful Office for Civil Rights has been unable to protect Jewish students. This failure has been a problem not of execution but of conceptualization. The OCR has been unable to address anti-Jewish harassment because it lacks a coherent conception of either Jewish identity or anti-Jewish hatred. Given jurisdiction over race and national origin but not religion, federal agents have had to determine whether Jewish Americans constitute a race or national origin group. They have been unable to do so. This has led to enforcement paralysis, as well as explosive internal confrontations and recriminations within the federal government. This book examines the legal and policy issues behind the ambiguity involved with civil rights protections for Jewish students. Written by a former senior government official, this book reveals the extent of this problem and presents a workable legal solution.

Indian Fights & Fighters of the American Western Frontier of the 19th Century

Product : Indian Fights & Fighters of the American Western Frontier of the 19th Century
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The great clash between the U.S Army and the Plains Indian tribes Everyone who has been fascinated by the history of the American western frontier has much for which to thank Cyrus Townsend Brady, the author of this book. Brady was a prolific author of both fiction and non fiction and in both genres his abiding interest and knowledge of the history of his own country is a well demonstrated. This book, 'Indian Fights and Fighters, ' captivated readers upon its publication and its success made the series of which it was part highly popular, although it was the fourth, not the first in his 'American Fights and Fighters Series.' Several more 'Fights and Fighters' books, based upon similar themes, followed. Brady relates-with some scholarship and with the help of maps, plans and illustrations-the principal engagements of the Plains Indian Wars in the period after the Civil War. The book draws on the first hand accounts of many of the people who were involved and is notable for bringing before the reader accounts by those who had not previously been published. Herein is a veritable cornucopia of western incident, campaigns, battles, fights and massacres, the full list of which is too numerous to catalogue here. They include the Fetterman Massacre, the Wagon Box Fight, Beecher's Island, the Fight on Beaver Creek, the Washita, the Rosebud and many, many more. This book has become an invaluable, highly regarded and enduring classic of the History of the West. Available in softcover and hardcover with dustjacket for collectors.

Dublin: The City Within the Grand and Royal Canals and the Circular Road, with the Phoenix Park

Product : Dublin: The City Within the Grand and Royal Canals and the Circular Road, with the Phoenix Park
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In this uniquely comprehensive guide to the buildings of central Dublin, the city's churches, public buildings, and streets are described for every district in lively detail. The entire area within the canals is covered as well, along with the Phoenix Park. Illustrations include numerous maps, plans, and new color photographs. Dublin's grand eighteenth-century set-pieces--Custom House, Four Courts, Bank of Ireland--are offset by a graceful Georgian cityscape, much of which remains intact. Rich and varied house interiors are also treated in full, many for the first time. The book features civic and commercial Victorian architecture, post-war buildings, and the buildings of a new generation of Irish architects. Two fine Gothic cathedrals remain from the medieval city, the full history of which is traced in an introduction to the volume. For all who share an interest in the fabric of Dublin--architect or historian, tourist or armchair traveller--this is the essential work.

The Games of Robert J. Fischer

Product : The Games of Robert J. Fischer
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Was Bobby Fischer the Greatest Player Ever? The question often asked is: Was Bobby Fischer the Greatest Player Ever? It is clear that Fischer was better than any player who preceded him, including Capablanca who, according to Professor Elo in his book "The Rating of Chess Players, Past and Present" ISBN 0923891277, was the greatest player prior to Fischer. However, Capablanca was only slightly better overall than his contemporaries, Lasker and Alekhine. Elo rated Capablanca at 2725 followed by Lasker and Botvinnik tied with 2720 and then Alekhine at 2690. The question now is: Was Fischer better than his successors, Garry Kasparov, Anatoly Karpov, Anand and Topalov? The answer usually given is that there is no comparison. Kasparov was only slightly better than Karpov. In fact, over their five matches for the World Chess Championship over a period of six years, their score was almost dead even, with Kasparov ahead by only 68-66 in the 134 games that they played. Now compare this to the score of 12 - 7 in games actually played in the Fischer-Spassky Match. Not only was Fischer much better, but Spassky was without doubt the second best player in the world, as compared to most other eras when there was and still is great doubt as to who was the second best player.

A Poetry Teacher's Toolkit: Book 4: Language and Performance

Product : A Poetry Teacher's Toolkit: Book 4: Language and Performance
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Professional poets spend many hours crafting a finished piece of work, yet we expect children in school to sit down and write when they are told to, whether they feel inspired or not. This series of four books is a toolkit to help you build a positive framework for children to read, write, understand and enjoy poetry - to bring a creative spark to the poetry classroom. A combination of featured poems, creative ideas, structured lesson plans and differentiated photocopiable activity sheets gives the series a uniquely flexible approach - which means you can use the materials in any classroom context. If you're wary of poetry, if you think it's boring, or if you're nervous about teaching poetry, then you've chosen the right book. Key themes covered in BOOK 4: Language and Performance are moods and feelings through the use of effective language; nonsense and humorous verse; the continuity and links between ancient and modern, between nursery and playground rhymes and Shakespeare; whatever our ability, there is a place for everyone on the poetry 'ladder'; and performance poetry. Other books in the series are: BOOK 1: Words and Wordplay; BOOK 2: Rhymes, Rhythms and Rattles; and BOOK 3: Style, Shape and Structure.

Mediterranean Crossroads: Marseille and Modern Architecture

Product : Mediterranean Crossroads: Marseille and Modern Architecture
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In the first decades of the twentieth century, Marseille was a booming Mediterranean port. Positioned at the very edge of France, the city functioned as a critical fulcrum between the metropolitan center and its overseas empire. A notoriously dangerous and cosmopolitan city, Marseille became the focus of the extraordinary energies of some of the most remarkable architects and theorists of urban modernity. Drawing together a cast of both world-renowned and less familiar architects, photographers, and cultural theorists, including Le Corbusier, Sigfried Giedion, Walter Benjamin, and László Moholy-Nagy, "Mediterranean Crossroads" examines how mythic ideas about Marseille helped to shape its urban landscape. Tracing successive planning proposals in tandem with shifting representations of the city in photographs, film, guidebooks, and postcards, Sheila Crane reconstructs the history and politics of architecture in Marseille from the 1920s through the years of rebuilding after World War II. By exploring how architects and planners negotiated highly localized pressures, evolving imperial visions, and transnational aspirations at the borders of Europe and the Mediterranean region, "Mediterranean Crossroads" brings to life a lost chapter in the history of modern architecture.

Stealing People's Names: History and Politics in a Sepik River Cosmology

Product : Stealing People's Names: History and Politics in a Sepik River Cosmology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Among the people of Avatip, a community in the Sepik region of Papua New Guinea, the most prestigious and valued forms of wealth are personal names. In this intriguing study, Simon Harrison analyzes the significance of names in the context of Avatip ritual, cosmology, and concepts of the person, and shows how the Avatip system of names parallels the gift-exchange systems of many other Melanesian societies. In ritualized debates, which form the arena of Avatip political life, rival leaders and the groups they represent struggle in oratorical contests for the possession of strategic names, and as they do so, continually manipulate myth, ritual and cosmology. By exploiting the inner possibilities of this symbolically constituted economy, these competitive processes over the past century have been progressively transforming the political system from a relatively egalitarian type to one based on hereditary inequality and rank. The author offers a critique of the analytical separation of economy and the symbolic order, arguing that it obscures the processes of political evolution in Melanesia and disguises the fundamental similarities underlying the sociocultural diversity of the region.

It is the third in a series to help provide current state-of-the-science information to stimulate awareness, research, and best practices in the field.

Promising and evidence-based practices are presented to provide the most recent approaches to helping children recover from the trauma of the abuse. The chapters in this book provide greater awareness of the issues involved with CEV, stimulate additional research, improve practice techniques, lead to more evidence-based programs for both intervention as well as prevention, and help initiate a national priority to eliminate violence in the home and community.

Description : Are they needed? To be sure. The Darwinian industry, industrious though it is, has failed to provide texts of more than a handful of Darwin's books. If you want to know what Darwin said about barnacles (still an essential reference to cirripedists, apart from any historical importance) you are forced to search shelves, or wait while someone does it for you; some have been in print for a century; various reprints have appeared and since vanished." --Eric Korn, "Times Literary Supplement" Charles Robert Darwin (1809-1882) has been widely recognized since his own time as one of the most influential writers in the history of Western thought. His books were widely read by specialists and the general public, and his influence had been extended by almost continuous public debate over the past 150 years. New York University Press's new paperback edition makes it possible to review Darwin's public literary output as a whole, plus his scientific journal articles, his private notebooks, and his correspondence. This is complete edition contains all of Darwin's published books, featuring definitive texts recording original pagination with Darwin's indexes retained. The set also features a general introduction and index, and introductions to each volume.

Every evening he told her that anybody with ordinary gumption ought to realize that night air was bad for the human frame. "The human frame won't stand everything, Miss Perry," he warned her, resentfully. "Even a child, if it had just ordinary gumption, ought to know enough not to let the night air blow on sick people yes, nor well people, either 'Keep out of the night air, no matter how well you feel.' That's what my mother used to tell me when I was a boy. 'Keep out of the night air, Virgil, ' she'd say. 'Keep out of the night air.'"

Black Jack

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Black Jack Herman Eva turns 109 as seen on the Today Show 4/9/08. Quote of the day: "When you've been buried alive, you're not looking forward to the real thing " The premiere African-American magician of the twentieth century, he was an ardent freedom fighter speaking out against the scourge of Jim Crow-ism and conducting Algonquin style roundtables in his Harlem abode circa 1920's. Intriguingly, he warned people against banks and stocks before the advent of the Great Depression. He continued to entertain and enlighten throughout the crisis that followed. That is, until his mysterious death on stage in April 1934. Steeped in details of its early twentieth-century setting, the manuscript offers a richly detailed look at the showmanship so popular during that era. In addition, it effectively conveys the mentality of the time, with prohibition, big-name gangsters, and the threat of national economic collapse looming always in the background. Ultimately, "Black Jack: A Drama of Magic, Mystery, and Legerdermain" also serves as a testament to the power of the human spirit, as readers may be struck not only by what Eva endures, but by how she endures it.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. The first series, which ran from 1847 to 1899, consists of 100 books containing published or previously unpublished works by authors from Christopher Columbus to Sir Francis Drake, and covering voyages to the New World, to China and Japan, to Russia and to Africa and India. This 1897 volume contains the first English translation of Jens Munk's Navigatio Septentrionalis, his account of the Danish expedition of 1619-1620 in search of a North-West Passage to Asia. They reached Hudson's Bay and explored it, producing the first map to show the whole area. However, they were poorly prepared for the conditions there, and almost all the crew died from cold, hunger or disease. They returned to Denmark the following year, and although another expedition was planned, it did not take place.

James III

Product : James III
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Detailed and up-to-date, this study analyzes Scotland's James III from both private and public perspectives and seeks to explain why this monarch was challenged by a huge rebellion in 1482, which he narrowly survived, and why he succumbed to a further rising in 1488, which placed his eldest son on the throne as James IV. James III's various characterizations--such as peace-loving, suspicious, treacherous, pious, lecherous, and lazy--are scrutinized, as is his role as a major patron of the arts. The architect of an intelligent and forward-looking foreign policy, James III was much criticized for his failures, including debasement of the coinage, royal money hoarding, favoring others above the noble counselors, and his inability to staunch feuds and enforce criminal justice. This chronicle explores all of these topics and probes into the life of one of the most enigmatic Stewart kings.

Description : From First, Do No Harm, Dr. L. Jan Eira catapults readers into the gripping continuance of his medical murder mystery. With the release of his new book, Seconds from Revenge, he once again engages readers with medical hero Dr. Jack Norris, whose life is put in danger once again when an old enemy returns- bent on revenge. Several heinous murders had been committed at Newton Memorial using an investigational drug, which eventually became known as 'Rat Poison.' This experimental agent for heart failure patients was discovered to have deadly repercussions. Blinded by its potential lucrative rewards, three terrorists proceeded to test the drug on innocent men with much loss of life. With Dr. Norris' cooperation with the authorities, one of the executioners was killed, the other incarcerated for life, but the third villain - the mastermind known as Simon Lagrange - is still at large. Having escaped the law, Lagrange is now back and looking for vengeance-with Dr. Norris as his object of enmity. The mystery plunges as Lagrange sabotages Norris' credibility as a doctor, taking away many innocent lives without remorse. Co-workers of Norris helplessly fall prey to Lagrange's sinister plan; nobody can be trusted, everyone is a suspect. Soon, reality becomes a nightmare when an unexpected assault was made on Dr. Norris' life, nine-thousand feet above the ground. It was clear that Lagrange would stop at nothing to get him. Is Dr. Norris ready for the worst when he fi nds himself Seconds from Revenge? An arresting denouement awaits readers as Eira takes them deep into the story, confounding them with unexpected twists and revelations.

Presidential Diary

Product : Presidential Diary
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Presidential Diary reveals the personal diary of Morton M. Monroe, who was elected president of the United States in November, 2020. It details his personal thoughts from the time shortly after the election until the latter part of August, 2021. In November, 2020 the reins of the United States government have been under the control of socialist-leaning progressives for the last twelve years. During this time several continuing substantial national problems have been left to fester and the economy is in a shambles with massive unemployment, high inflation, and an almost unmanageable national debt. President Monroe and his inner circle have a plan for how to attack these problems and realize the situation is so dire that they must act precipitously. Some of President Monroe's actions are not for the weak-kneed, faint of heart, or unimaginative. This is President Monroe's story in his own words. Lewis Shupe spent four years at Stanford University and two years at the University of Southern California, where, through the generosity of both universities, he was awarded two degrees. After spending over four years in Texas keeping the Viet Cong out of the San Antonio area, he pursued a thirty-year career in computer systems design and programming. Included in his sojourn were eight years as an owner of a computer service company in Louisville, Kentucky, and various jobs with various companies that endured his annoying personality with differing degrees of patience. After retiring in 2001, he was enjoying enormously the two hundred rounds of golf per year he was playing, but for some reason known only to his inner child he felt a calling to write this book and rejoin the misery of doing actual work. God works in strange ways, His miracles to perform.

Wildlife Sanctuaries & the Audubon Society: Places to Hide and Seek

Product : Wildlife Sanctuaries & the Audubon Society: Places to Hide and Seek
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "John M. 'Frosty' Anderson was one of the National Audubon Society's great 'living legends.' . . . No one has done more for wildlife than this modest man with the best sense of humor ever to come down the pike." --from the Foreword National Audubon Society sanctuaries across the United States preserve the unique combinations of plants, climates, soils, and water that endangered birds and other animals require to survive. Their success stories include the recovery of the common and snowy egrets, wood storks, Everglade kites, puffins, and sandhill cranes, to name only a few. In this book, Frosty Anderson describes the development of fifteen NAS sanctuaries from Maine to California and from the Texas coast to North Dakota. Drawn from the newsletter Places to Hide and Seek, which he edited during his tenure as Director/Vice President of the Wildlife Sanctuary Department of the NAS, these profiles offer a personal, often humorous look at the daily and longer-term activities involved in protecting bird habitats. Collectively, they record an era in conservation history in which ordinary people, without benefit of Ph.D.'s, became stewards of the habitats in which they had lived all their lives. It's a story worth preserving, and it's entertainingly told here by the man who knows it best.

Walter Benjamin and the Demands of History

Product : Walter Benjamin and the Demands of History
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book is the first to consider the presence of history and the question of historical practice in Walter Benjamin's work. Benjamin, the critic and philosopher of history, was also the practitioner, the authors contend, and it is in the practice of historical writing that the materialist aspect of his thought is most evident. Some of the essays analyze Benjamin's writings in cultural history and the philosophy of history. Others connect his historical and theoretical practices to issues in contemporary feminism and post-colonial studies, and to cultural contexts including the United States, Japan, and Hong Kong. In different ways, the authors all find in Benjamin's specific notion of historical materialism a dialectic between textual and cultural analysis which can reinvigorate the relation between literary and historical studies.

The Final Empire: The Collapse of Civilization and the Seed of the Future

Product : The Final Empire: The Collapse of Civilization and the Seed of the Future
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In spite of its tough message, there is much compassion and humanity in The Final Empire. Right away as you begin to read this work, you sense increasingly the grand perspective in Ktke's words. He is not speaking of anarchy. He is offering vital common sense. It's just that his meaning is so unavoidably political. And so much against what we have been taught all our lives: The materialistic values of civilization teach us that the accumulation of wealth is progress. The material wealth of the civilization is derived from the death of the earth, the soils, the forests, the fish stocks, the 'free resources' of flora and fauna. The ultimate end of this is for all human species to live in giant parasitical cities of cement and metal while surrounded by deserts of exhausted soils. The simple polar opposites are: the richness and wealth of the natural life of earth versus the material wealth of people living out their lives in artificial environments. This amounts to a direct challenge to humankind. A demand for radical change. A re-envisioning of our part in the community of life and the precepts of individuality. And Mr. Ktke provides a strong argument for this case. He traces the environmental scars of civilization through the ages. Empire after empire, desertification of the top soil winds its way around the globe in an erosive helix from China to India to Mesopotamia to Italy to North America. As radical as it may seem at first glance, The Final Empire is a necessary and sensible primer for the recovery of the planet. It blends a critical statistical analysis of our deteriorating environment with a positivism of hope for a post-empire age and a new whole-human relation to the living community of Earth.

Spiritual Capital: Wealth We Can Live by

Product : Spiritual Capital: Wealth We Can Live by
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Spiritual Capital presents a new vision of capitalist society that transcends the greed, materialism, and meaninglessness so rampant today. It offers an idea of wealth, profit, and capital that's about more than simply money. "Profit," under this system, would be not merely for private gain but would be used in part for public good. "Wealth" would be that which enriches the deeper aspects of our lives, gained by drawing upon our most fundamental purposes and highest motivations and finding a way to embed these in our work. "Capital" is amassed by serving - in corporate philosophy and practice - the pressing concerns of our world. The author's dream of getting a critical mass of people and organizations to act for what's right rather than for self-serving reasons. Ideally, spiritual capital would reflect a values-based business culture. Instead of emphasizing shareholder value, it would promote "stakeholder value," where stakeholders include the whole human race and the planet itself.

Kansas Archaeology

Product : Kansas Archaeology
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From Kanorado to Pawnee villages, Kansas is a land rich in archaeological sites--nearly 12,000 known--that testify to its prehistoric heritage. This volume presents the first comprehensive overview of Kansas archaeology in nearly fifty years, containing the most current descriptions and interpretations of the state's archaeological record. Building on Waldo Wedel's classic Introduction to Kansas Archaeology, it synthesizes more than four decades of research and discusses all major prehistoric time period in one readily accessible resource. In Kansas Archaeology, a team of distinguished contributors, all experts in their fields, synthesize what is known about the human presence in Kansas from the age of the mammoth hunters, circa 10,000 B.C., to Euro-American contact in the mid-nineteenth century. Covering such sites as Kanorado--one of the oldest in the Americas--the authors review prehistoric peoples of the Paleoarchaic era, Woodland cultures, Central Plains tradition, High Plains Upper Republican culture, Late Prehistoric Oneota, and Great Bend peoples. They also present material on three historic cultures: Wichita, Kansa, and Pawnee. The findings presented here shed new light on issues such as how people adapted to environmental shifts and the impact of technological innovation on social behavior. Included also are chapters on specialized topics such as plant use in prehistory, sources of stone for tool manufacture, and the effects of landscape evolution on sites. Chapters on Kansas culture history also reach into the surrounding region and offer directions for future inquiry. More than eighty illustrations depict a wide range of artifacts and material remains. An invaluable resourcefor archaeologists and students, Kansas Archaeology is also accessible to interested laypeople--anyone needing a summary of the material remains that have been found in Kansas. It demonstrates the major advances in our understanding of Kansas prehistory that have applications far beyond its borders and point the way toward our future understanding of the past.

The Life and Legacy of G. I. Taylor

Product : The Life and Legacy of G. I. Taylor
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : G.I. Taylor, one of the most distinguished physical scientists of this century, used his deep insight and originality to increase our understanding of phenomena such as the turbulent flow of fluids. His interest in the science of fluid flow was not confined to theory; he was one of the early pioneers of aeronautics, and designed a new type of anchor that was inspired by his passion for sailing. Taylor spent most of his working life in the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, where he investigated the mechanics of fluid and solid materials; his discoveries and ideas have had application throughout mechanical, civil, and chemical engineering, meteorology, oceanography and materials science. He was also a noted research leader, and his group in Cambridge became one of the most productive centers for the study of fluid mechanics. How was Taylor able to be innovative in so many different ways? This interesting and unusual biography helps answer that question. Professor Batchelor, himself a student and close collaborator of Taylor, is ideally placed to describe Taylor's life, achievements and background. He does so without introducing any mathematical details, making this book enjoyable reading for a wide range of people--and especially those whose own interests have brought them into contact with the legacy of Taylor.

The Political and Institutional Effects of Term Limits

Product : The Political and Institutional Effects of Term Limits
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Discontent with politics and politicians has led to calls for term limits in the belief that new faces would bring new perspectives and the influence of monied special interests would decrease. This innovative volume examines the effects of term limits by combining statistical analysis of the effects of terms limits on electoral competition, campaign contributions, and the activities of the Michigan legislature with in-depth interviews with legislators. The book sheds important light on the political, institutional and individual effects of terms limits. The authors find many surprises that neither advocates nor opponents anticipated, included shifts in the balance of power, changes within and between political parties, and new career paths for politicians.

Rethinking Hindu Identity

Product : Rethinking Hindu Identity
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This book provides an antidote to the virulent version of Hindu communalism and cultural chauvinism and seeks to expose the hollowness of the xenophobic claims about Hindu religious identity. It identifies some of the stereotypes about Hinduism and shows them to be without any basis in historical evidence. Contrary to the belief popularized by the Hindu jingoists, it shows that Hinduism, far from being eternal and monolithic, is the youngest of religions and that its supposed tolerant nature is a myth. The book also challenges the sacredness' of cow as a community identity of the Hindus and draws on a melange of evidence to demonstrate that the ritual killing of this animal was de rigueur much before the arrival in India of Muslims who are stereotyped as kine killers, that its flesh has been very much a part of the early Indian food regimen, and continues to remain so even today in some sections of Hindu society. The story of the cow through the millennia, the author argues, is full of inconsistencies, thus rendering its supposed "holiness" elusive, indeed as elusive as Hindu identity itself. Written in a riveting style, the essays in this book are an antidote to the Hindu religious fundamentalist mythomania, and will certainly be of value to those interested in the construction of Hinduism and the politics of Hindu identity in cotemporary India.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Chinese Religion: A Contextual Approach is a new introduction to the field of Chinese religion and culture. It seeks to guide readers through some of the primary source material and to introduce them to continuing, contemporary debates and interpretations of religious ideas, concepts and practices in China and beyond. Defining religion as a way of life, this book examines religious beliefs and practices in particular cultural contexts, and highlights the relevance of religion to personal, communal and political life. In this clear account, Xinzhong Yao and Yanxia Zhao move away from the traditional and outmoded definition of Chinese religion, towards a multi-layered hermeneutic of the diverse and yet syncretic nature and functions of religions in China. Additional features include questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter and suggestions for further reading at the end of the book. >

Forgotten Future: The Politics of Poetry in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Product : Forgotten Future: The Politics of Poetry in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Forgotten Future documents and critically evaluates contemporary poetry within the dynamic field of cultural production in Bosnia and Herzegovina since the late 1980s. Its context spans three historico-political phases: the cusp on which socialism was already losing its primacy and ethno-nationalism was gaining dominance; the subsequent collapse of Yugoslavia and the ensuing war led by ethno-nationalist elites; and the period of the aftermath of war - the so-called "post-war transition." This new approach to thinking about poetry in Bosnia and Herzegovina focuses on alternative cultural practices, which have articulated a more equitable organization of Bosnian society. Such practices have the capacity not only to tell us how un-free we are, but also to shift the criteria of possibility of our freedom towards a more hopeful politics. Forgotten Future sheds scholarly light on the terror of inequality, the solidarity of unbridled life, relevant knowledge production, and material memories of war and genocide.

Baker & Botts in the Development of Modern Houston

Product : Baker & Botts in the Development of Modern Houston
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : As counsel for Pennzoil's successful effort to recover billions of dollars in damages from Texaco over the acquisition of Getty Oil Company, the Baker & Botts law firm of Houston, Texas, achieved wide public recognition in the 1980s. But among its peers in the legal and corporate worlds, Baker & Botts has for more than a century held a preeminent position, handling the legal affairs of such blue-chip clients as the Southern Pacific Railroad, Houston Lighting & Power Company, Rice University, Texas Commerce Bank, and Tenneco. In this study, Kenneth J. Lipartito and Joseph A. Pratt chronicle the history of Baker & Botts, placing particular emphasis on the firm's role in Houston's economic development. Founded in 1840, Baker & Botts literally grew up with Houston. The authors chart its evolution from a nineteenth-century regional firm that represented eastern-based corporations moving into Texas to a twentieth-century national firm with clients throughout the world. They honestly discuss the criticisms that Baker & Botts has faced as an advocate of big business. But they also identify the important impact that corporate law firms of this type have on business reorganization and government regulation. As the authors demonstrate in this case study, law firms throughout the twentieth century have helped to shape public policy in these critical areas. Always prominent in the community, and with prominent connections (former Secretary of State James A. Baker III is the great-grandson of the original Baker), the Baker & Botts law firm belongs in any history of the development of Houston and the Southwest.

Product : White Passage: Red Sun
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : February 1989. Captain Brian Halloran and his Special Forces team deploy to a remote jungle valley in Peru to establish a base for training elite Peruvian counter-narcotics police. Not only are they threatened by violent narco-traffickers, but they face possible attack by the ruthless Shining Path insurgents operating in the valley. Making matters worse, they quickly realize that powerful political forces may be conspiring to ensure their mission fails. A brilliant young guerrilla leader, Comrade Olivario, commands the most lethal force the insurgents have ever fielded. He must establish the Shining Path as the preeminent political power in the valley, and to do this he must eliminate every threat"including the Green Berets," The stakes are high, and Olivario's plan will not only decide who controls the valley, but very likely the fate of the woman he loves. Straight from the headlines, "White Passage: Red Sun" details the motivation behind US involvement in the drug war and accurately describes the tenuous relationship between the drug Cartels and various terrorist insurgencies. The exciting story explains the powerful influence of global political events on the "drug war" and exposes the inner workings of one of the most misunderstood conflicts of our time.

The Politics of Iranian Cinema: Films and Society in the Islamic Republic

Product : The Politics of Iranian Cinema: Films and Society in the Islamic Republic
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Iran has undergone considerable social upheaval since the revolution and this has been reflected in its cinema. Drawing on first-hand interviews and detailed ethnographic research, this book explores how cinema is engaged in the dynamics of social change in contemporary Iran. The author not only discusses the practices of regulation and reception of films from major award winning directors but also important mainstream filmmakers such as Hatamikia and Tabizi. Contributing to ethnographic accounts of Iranian governance in the field of culture, the book reveals the complex behind-the-scenes negotiations between filmmakers and the authorities which constitute a major part of the workings of film censorship. The author traces the relationship of Iranian cinema to recent social/political movements in Iran, namely reformism and women's movement, and shows how international acclaim has been instrumental in filmmakers' engagement with matters of political importance in Iran. This book will be a valuable tool for courses on film and media studies, and will provide a significant insight into Iranian cultural politics for students of cultural studies and anthropology, Middle Eastern and Iranian studies.

Styles of Enlightenment: Taste, Politics, and Authorship in Eighteenth-Century France

Product : Styles of Enlightenment: Taste, Politics, and Authorship in Eighteenth-Century France
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Styles of Enlightenment argues that alongside its democratic ideals and its efforts to create a unified public sphere, the Enlightenment also displayed a tendency to erect rigid barriers when it came to matters of style and artistic expression. The French philosophes tackled the issue of the hierarchy of genres with surprising inflexibility, and they looked down on those forms of art that they saw as commercial, popular, and merely entertaining. They were convinced that the standard of taste was too important a matter to be left to the whims of the public and the vagaries of the marketplace: aesthetic judgment ought to belong to a few, enlightened minds who would then pass it on to the masses. Through readings of fictions, essays, memoirs, eulogies, and theatrical works by FA(c)nelon, Bouhours, Marivaux, Montesquieu, Voltaire, Diderot, Rousseau, Mercier, Thomas, and others, Styles of Enlightenment traces the stages of a confrontation between the virile philosophe and the effeminate worldly writer, "good" and "bad" taste, high art and frivolous entertainment, state patronage and the privately sponsored marketplace, the academic eulogy and worldly conversation. It teases out the finer points of division on the public battlefields of literature and politics and the new world of contesting sexual economies.

The State of Africa 2010/11. Parameters and Legacies of Governance and Issue Areas

Product : The State of Africa 2010/11. Parameters and Legacies of Governance and Issue Areas
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The State of Africa series project was conceived by the Africa Institute of South Africa (AISA) during its 2003-2004 financial year for purposes of mapping out on a regular basis critical issue areas relating to intra- and inter-African as well as extra-African relations. The first and second volumes of the series were published in 2004 and 2008 respectively. Volume 1: The State of Africa: Thematic and Factual Review served as an exploratory piece and covered a broad range of issues relating to politics and governance, millennium development goals (MDGs), peace and conflict and regional development. Volume 2: The State of Africa: Post-Conflict Reconstruction and Development focused thematically and examined - from critical and comprehensive perspectives - issues associated with post-conflict in Africa. The volume was grounded on the continent's quest for conflict prevention, management and resolution as a means of creating an enabling environment for the consolidation of democracy and reconstruction of societies affected by crisis in general and war in particular. This volume, Volume 3: Parameters and Legacies of Governance and Issue Areas takes a multi-pronged and multi-faceted approach to some of these issues by providing in-depth analysis of dynamics at national, regional, continental and international levels. The global transformation in the 1980s and 1990s, which witnessed the crumbling of the Soviet Union, the Warsaw Pact and opened a window of opportunities for East-West bipolar rapprochement, particularly between the United States and Russia, also had impact on Africa at the national, regional and continental levels. Focusing on conceptual units, such as the state, indigenous organisations, regional and continental organisations as well as selected priority issues - in particular gender and empowerment, the global South, and space science - the chapters in the book provide useful insights into the nature and impact of the transformation and its impact on the socio-economic and politico-security situation in Africa.

The Road to Richmond: The Civil War Letters of Major Abner R. Small of the 16th Maine Volunteers.

Product : The Road to Richmond: The Civil War Letters of Major Abner R. Small of the 16th Maine Volunteers.
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Abner Small wrote one of the most honest, poignant, and moving memoirs to come out of the Civil War. He served as a non-commissioned officer in the Third Maine Infantry during the summer of 1861, experiencing battle for the first time at First Bull Run. As a recruiting officer, he helped to raise the Sixteenth Maine Infantry and served as its adjutant. The Sixteenth Maine gained fame for its heroic delaying action on July 1 at Gettysburg, where it lost 180 of its 200 men. It went on to serve in Grantas Overland Campaign in Virginia. Small was an articulate observer of all this. He wrote his memoirs with a keen sense of the irony of life during wartime, and with a gift for expression. His descriptions of the dead at Gettysburg, his characterizations of famous men such as Major General Oliver Otis Howard, and his reflections on the emotions of men under fire are outstanding. Small was captured in the battle of Globe Tavern on August 18, 1864. His account of prison life at Libby, Salisbury, and Danville is gripping. Small was exchanged just in time to lead his regiment in the final days of the war. His book reveals more of the inner soldier than almost any other account written by a Union veteran.

The Emerging Shield: The Air Force and the Evolution of Continental Air Defense 1945-1960

Product : The Emerging Shield: The Air Force and the Evolution of Continental Air Defense 1945-1960
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : American concerns over air defense of the continental United States were at their most grave in the 1950s. The descent into cold war in the late 1940s, the confrontation of two hostile political systems in distant Korea, and the Soviet development of atomic weapons earlier than expected by American military experts came together to stimulate popular pressures for a shield against manned bombers reaching the American heartland from the North Pole. The effect on the newly independent Air Force was significant-it required that the Air Force modify its weapons inventory, just as the service had settled on a strong strategic nuclear offensive force to deter an enemy attack. The new requirements for strategic defense threatened to compete heavily for resources with the Strategic Air Command, itself undergoing a buildup and the introduction of new airplanes and a ballistic missile force. The Air Force nevertheless soon realized that the prospect of an attack by bombers armed with nuclear weapons was real. At least a rudimentary defense system, one capable of growing in strength and sophistication as demands dictated, would be needed to persuade the Soviets that an attack might not succeed. The postwar Air Defense Command, an administrative and planning backwater compared to the Strategic Air Command, suddenly assumed far greater significance, absorbing a larger portion of the defense budget. The expansion of the air defense effort after the mid-1950s had an impact on service roles, forcing the Air Force to consider issues it had not addressed in the past. An effective guided missile defense in the latter part of the decade brought the U.S. Army into the Continental Air Defense Command.Continental implications of the defense problem went beyond dividing responsibilities for tracking and destroying incoming attackers. A wide range of international political issues attended the emplacement of a defensive warning system, for much of its construction had to be on Canadian soil. Even here, the Air Force willingly proceeded, convinced that early warnings of an attack received from the net deployed in arctic regions would improve the survivability of the SAC force that would launch the counterblow.

Autobiographical International Relations: I, IR

Product : Autobiographical International Relations: I, IR
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This volume provides a novel approach to international relations. In the course of fifteen essays, scholars write about how life events brought them to their subject matter. They place their narratives in the larger context of world politics, culture, and history. Autobiographical International Relations believes that the fictive distancing associated with academic prose creates disaffection in both readers and writers. In contrast, these essays demonstrate how to reengage the "I" while simultaneously sustaining theoretical precision and historical awareness. Authors highlight their motives, their desires, and their wounds. By connecting their theoretical and practical engagements with their needs and wounds, and by working within the overlap between theory, history, and autobiography, these essays aim to increase the clarity, urgency, and meaningfulness of academic work. These essays are autobiographical, but focused on the academic aspect of authorsa (TM) lives. Specifically, they are set within the domain of international relations/global politics. They are theoretical, but geared to demonstrate that theoretical decisions emerge from theoristsa (TM) needs and wounds. Theoretical precision, rather than being explicitly deduced, is instead immanent to the autobiographical and the historical/cultural narrative each author portrays. And, these essays are framed in historical/cultural terms, but seek to bind together theory, history, culture, and the personal into a differentiated and vibrant whole. This book moves the field of International Relations towards greater candidness about how personal narrative influences theoretical articulations. No such volume currently exists in the field of international relations.

God Has Purpose for You: Allowing the Spirit to Lead You to Divine Destiny

Product : God Has Purpose for You: Allowing the Spirit to Lead You to Divine Destiny
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Do you feel purposeless? Do you go through the day half-awake, wondering what you're working for-what you're living for? You're not alone. This is a common symptom of many Christians, despite a strong faith in God and His word. We know what we are supposed to believe and how we are supposed to live; so why is that biblically inspired peace, joy, and love so hard to come by?You don't have to ask yourself these questions anymore. "God Has a Purpose for You" is an enlightening and invigorating look at the Bible and how it proves we each have a specific purpose, set forth for us by the Lord. Kerwin Tucker describes many different steps along the path to finding your life's purpose, including "The Prerequisites for Living a Spirit-Led Life," "Define Your Vision," and "The Pathway to Your Destiny."It's easy to believe you will never do anything substantial with your life. It's easy to think it would be impossible to have a lasting effect on your friends, family, and neighbors ... but it's not true. God has put you here for a reason. You have a predestined purpose, and it is finally time to take a step in the right direction. Find your life purpose, through Christ, and in so doing, discover sought after peace and ever-present joy.

The Medieval Broadcloth: Changing Trends in Fashions, Manufacturing and Consumption

Product : The Medieval Broadcloth: Changing Trends in Fashions, Manufacturing and Consumption
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The eight papers presented here provide a useful introduction to medieval broadcloth, and an up-to-date synthesis of current research. The word broadcloth is nowadays used as an overall term for the woven textiles mass-produced and exported all over Europe. It was first produced in Flanders as a luxurious cloth from the 11th century and throughout the medieval period. Broadcloth is the English term; it isLaken in Flemish, Tuch in German, Drap in French, Klaede in the Scandinavian languages, and Verka in Finish. As the concept of broadcloth is derived from written sources, it cannot directly be identified in the archaeological textiles and therefore is very suitable as an interdisciplinary topic. The first chapter (John Munro) presents an introduction to the subject and takes the reader through the manufacturing and economic importance of the medieval broadcloth as a luxury item. Chapter two (Carsten Jahnke) describes trade in the Baltic Sea area, detailing production standards, shipping and prices. Chapters three, four and five (Heini Kirjavainen, Riina Rammo and Jerzy Maik) deal with archaeological textiles excavated in the Baltic, Finland and Poland. Chapters six and seven (Camilla Luise Dahl and Kathrine Vestergard Pedersen) concern the problems of combining the terminology from the written sources with archaeological textiles. The last chapter reports on an ongoing reconstruction project: at the open air museum in Eindhoven, Holland, Anton Reurink has tried to recreate a medieval broadcloth based on written and historical sources. During the last few years he has reconstructed the tool for preparing and spinning wool, and a group of spinners has produced a yarn of the right quality. He subsequently wove approximately 20 metres of cloth and conducted the first experiment with foot-fulling.

Karl Marx, Anthropologist

Product : Karl Marx, Anthropologist
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : After being widely rejected in the late 20th century the work of Karl Marx is now being reassessed by many theorists and activists. "Karl Marx, Anthropologist" explores how this most influential of modern thinkers is still highly relevant for Anthropology today. Marx was profoundly influenced by critical Enlightenment thought. He believed that humans were social individuals that simultaneously satisfied and forged their needs in the contexts of historically particular social relations and created cultures. Marx continually refined the empirical, philosophical, and practical dimensions of his anthropology throughout his lifetime. Assessing key concepts, from the differences between class-based and classless societies to the roles of exploitation, alienation and domination in the making of social individuals, "Karl Marx, Anthropologist" is an essential guide to Marx's anthropological thought for the 21st century

Flying Pictures

Product : Flying Pictures
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Between 2001 and 2004, on the snowy fields in New York's Hudson Valley and the rocky coasts of the Bay Area in Northern California, photographer Daniel Gordon learned to fly--if only for 1/125 of a second. Using a camera mounted on a tripod, Gordon frames his picture. He then runs out onto the landscape and launches himself into the air, while an assistant snaps the shutter. The images in Flying Pictures are at once pastoral landscapes and documents of a performance. Only after considering them for a while, does the thought occur that their fleeting bliss was swiftly met with physical doom--a crash back to Earth. Such a journey requires great humility as well as hubris, and a will to achieve the impossible if only for a moment. The project began at a time when digital technology was changing the role that truth has historically played in the media of film and photography. The ease with which one could now alter an image with Photoshop created a new sense of paranoia concerning the veracity of photographs. Flying Pictures' unbelievable, unaltered images reveal that there never was just one truth in photography.

Chimeras and Consciousness: Evolution of the Sensory Self

Product : Chimeras and Consciousness: Evolution of the Sensory Self
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Chimeras and Consciousness" begins the inquiry into the evolution of the collective sensitivities of life. Scientist-scholars from a range of fields--including biochemistry, cell biology, history of science, family therapy, genetics, microbial ecology, and primatology--trace the emergence and evolution of consciousness. Complex behaviors and the social imperatives of bacteria and other life forms during 3,000 million years of Earth history gave rise to mammalian cognition. Awareness and sensation led to astounding activities; millions of species incessantly interacted to form our planet's complex conscious system. Our planetmates, all of them conscious to some degree, were joined only recently by us, the aggressive modern humans. From social bacteria to urban citizens, all living beings participate in community life. Nested inside families within communities inside ecosystems, each metabolizes, takes in matter, expends energy, and excretes. Each of the members of our own and other species, in groups with incessantly shifting alliances, receives and processes information. Mergers of radically different life forms with myriad purposes--the "chimeras" of the title--underlie dramatic metamorphosis and other positive evolutionary change.] Since early bacteria avoided, produced, and eventually used oxygen, Earth's sensory systems have expanded and complexified. Taken together, these provocative essays, going far beyond science but undergirded by the finest science, serve to put sensitive, sensible life in its cosmic context.

Revenge of the Domestic: Women, the Family, and Communism in the German Democratic Republic

Product : Revenge of the Domestic: Women, the Family, and Communism in the German Democratic Republic
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Revenge of the Domestic" examines gender relations in East Germany from 1945 to the 1970s, focusing especially on the relationship between ordinary women, the Communist Party, and the state created by the Communists, the German Democratic Republic (GDR). The book weaves together personal stories from interviews, statistical material, and evidence from archival research in Berlin, Potsdam, Leipzig, Merseburg, and Chemnitz to reconstruct the complex interplay between state policy toward women and the family on the one hand, and women's reactions to policy on the other. Donna Harsch demonstrates that women resisted state decisions as citizens, wageworkers, mothers, wives, and consumers, and that in every guise they maneuvered to overcome official neglect of the family. As state dependence on female employment increased, the book shows, the Communists began to respond to the insistence of women that the state pay attention to the family. In fits and starts, the party state begrudgingly retooled policy in a more consumerist and family-oriented direction. This "domestication" was partial, ambivalent, and barely acknowledged from above. It also had ambiguous, arguably regressive, effects on the private gender arrangements and attitudes of East Germans. Nonetheless, the economic and social consequences of this domestication were cumulatively powerful and, the book argues, gradually undermined the foundations of the GDR.

Music in the Age of Chaucer: Revised Edition, with Chaucer Songs'

Product : Music in the Age of Chaucer: Revised Edition, with Chaucer Songs'
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An absorbing survey... He is an expert on the French song of the period, consequently his wider view of Chaucer's musical background is well worth reading ... and he has much to say about Italy and England. The music is first-rate, and early music performers will find these songs a welcome addition to their repertory. EARLY MUSIC Although Chaucer himself was never described as a musician, a number of his poems are based on French models which belong to a well-established musical tradition, and there are also many references to musical activities in his larger works. This is the starting point for Dr Wilkins's book, which explores both the wider question of the relationship between music and literature in the fourteenth century and the specific area of Chaucer songs'. He surveys the musical and literary scene in France, Italy and Britain during Chaucer's lifetime, with special emphasis on composers such as Machaut and Landini, and on the differences in national styles. The performance of music and the instruments used are also fully explored.The discussion of Chaucer's musical background is illustrated in the accompanying settings presented with words by Chaucer - ten ballades, three complaintes (or chants royaux), and one rondeau.Fully illustrated with black and white photographs and musical examples.New edition; first published 1979, 1980.

The Famous 41: Sexuality and Social Control in Mexico, 1901

Product : The Famous 41: Sexuality and Social Control in Mexico, 1901
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : On November 17, 1901, Mexico City police raided a private party and arrested 41 men, half of whom were dressed as women. Clandestine transvestite balls were not unheard of at this time, and a raid would not normally gain national attention. However, Mexican cultural trends in literature, art, the sciences, and in journalism were inciting an atmosphere of sexual curiosity that was in search of the right turn of events to ignite a discursive explosion and focus interest on what was not a new phenomenon, but what was about to become a new concept: homosexuality. The editors treat the "nefarious" ball as a cultural event in itself and have assembled pictures, including the famous engravings by Posada, and have translated part of an historical novel about the event. At the same time, they uncover the underworld in Mexico City with essays on prison conditions, criminology, mental health discourse, and working class masculinities to create a rare and comprehensive slice of Mexican history at the turn of the century.

The Philosophy of the Bible as Foundation of Jewish Culture: Philosophy of Biblical Narrative

Product : The Philosophy of the Bible as Foundation of Jewish Culture: Philosophy of Biblical Narrative
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Hebrew Bible forms the central point from which all Jewish philosophers begin their task of coming to terms with our present day society. This is the bedrock upon which Israeli philosopher Eliezer Schweid bases his two-volume book, newly translated from the original Hebrew. Each generation of thinkers has reimagined and reinterpreted the Bible's lessons. Schweid traces the intellectual footsteps of some of history's most preeminent Jewish philosophers, beginning with Spinoza and Mendelssohn, down through early twentieth century thinkers such as Franz Rosenzweig. Then, contemplating a post-war world cut away from its philosophical moorings, Schweid comes to grips with the crossroads at which our society finds itself today, and bends his own intellect to the time-honored task of reminding his contemporaries of the Bible's continued relevance in guiding our moral and ethical outlook. Eliezer Schweid is Professor Emeritus of Jewish Thought at the Hebrew University. He has published 40 books in both general and specific areas of Jewish thought of all periods, and has commented frequently on the relevance of the legacy of Jewish thought to contemporary issues of Jewish and universal human concern. He is the recipient of the distinguished Israel Prize and two honorary doctorates.

Death Comes in Yellow

Product : Death Comes in Yellow
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Death Comes in Yellow" presents the history of one slave labor camp in order to shed light on all aspects of the slave labor camps established in Poland under German occupation. Hasag-Skarzysko was one of hundreds of camps scattered throughout occupied Poland. They were distinguished by size, the nationality of the prisoners, their location, the date of their establishment, and the authority in charge. The large number of labor camps reflected the German policy of exploiting the work forces of the occupied countries. These camps were part of a Europe-wide system of forced labor. The first part of this volume reviews the external history of the camp. The second section, which studies the internal workings of the camp, is quite different in approach and includes an analysis of prisoner society and a moving description of the individual prisoner's struggle to survive. At least twenty-five thousand Jews passed through the Skarzysko camp, and the large majority of them did not live to see its

The Theory of Rules

Product : The Theory of Rules
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Karl N. Llewellyn was one of the founders and major figures of legal realism, and his many keen insights have a central place in American law and legal understanding. Key to Llewellyn’s thinking was his conception of rules, put forward in his numerous writings and most famously in his often mischaracterized declaration that they are “pretty playthings.” Previously unpublished, "The Theory of Rules "is the most cogent presentation of his profound and insightful thinking about the life of rules. This book frames the development of Llewellyn’s thinking and describes the difference between what rules literally prescribe and what is actually done, with the gap explained by a complex array of practices, conventions, professional skills, and idiosyncrasies, most of which are devoted to achieving a law’s larger purpose rather than merely following the letter of a particular rule. Edited, annotated, and with an extensive analytic introduction by leading contemporary legal scholar Frederick Schauer, this rediscovered work contains material not found elsewhere in Llewellyn’s writings and will prove a valuable contribution to the existing literature on legal realism.

Post-War British Women Novelists and the Canon

Product : Post-War British Women Novelists and the Canon
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : With the increasing number of books on contemporary fiction, there is a need for a work that examines whom we value, and why. These questions lie at the heart of this book which, by focusing on four novelists, literary and popular, interrogates the canon over the last fifty years. The argument unfolds to demonstrate that academic trends increasingly control canonicity, as do the demands of genre, the increasing commercialisation of literature, and the power of the literary prize. Turner argues that literary excellence, demonstrated by style and imaginative power, is often missing in many works that have become modern classics and makes a case for the value of the 'universal' in literature. Written in a jargon-free style, with reference to many supporting writers, the book raises a number of significant cultural questions about the arts, fashions and literary reputations, of interest to readers in contemporary literary studies.
