    Berghahn Books 2010; US$ 34.95

    It is commonly acknowledged that anthropologists use personal experiences to inform their writing.

  • Awaiting Apocalypseby Professor Paul Corcoran

    Palgrave Macmillan 1999; US$ 99.00

    The current obsession with the 'end of the millennium' illustrates the enduring power of the idea of endings.

Opening a path of understanding between ancient conceptions of meaning and the sceptical predicates of modern science,... more...

  • Sentimentalism, Ethics and the Culture of Feelingby Michael Bell

    Palgrave Macmillan 2000; US$ 175.00

    Sentimentalism, Ethics and the Culture of Feeling defends feeling against customary distrust or condescension by showing that the affective turn of the eighteenth-century cult of sentiment, despite its sometimes surreal manifestations, has led to a positive culture of feeling. The very reaction against sentimentalism has taught us to identity sentimentality.... more...
