    If your mentally ill patient dies, are you to blame?

    On a sweltering June morning in 1933 a fifteen-year-old Muslim orphan girl refused to rise in a show of respect for her elders at her Christian missionary school in Port Said.

  • The Dollar and National Securityby Paul Viotti

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 25.95

    Defense establishments and the armed forces they organize, train, equip, and deploy depend upon the security of capital and capital flows, mechanisms that have become increasingly globalized. Military capabilities are thus closely tied not only to the size of the economic base from which they are drawn, but also to the viability of global convertibility... more...

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 27.95

    Only 150 years ago, the majority of the world's population was largely illiterate.

What are the effects of such radical, large-scale change? David Baker argues that the education revolution has... more...

  • Ethics as a Work of Charityby David Decosimo

    Stanford University Press 2014; US$ 65.00

    Most of us wonder how to make sense of the apparent moral excellences or virtues of those who have different visions of the good life or different religious commitments than our own.
