    Stanford University Press 2015; US$ 8.99

    Our competitive, service-oriented societies are taking a toll on the late-modern individual.

    Stanford University Press 2005; US$ 23.50

    Stanford University Press 2009; US$ 27.50

    The last six years have witnessed a virtually unending debate over U.S. policy toward Iraq, a debate that is likely to continue well into the new administration and perhaps the next, notwithstanding recent improvements on the ground.
