  • Rethinking the Other in Antiquityby Erich S. Gruen

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 28.95 US$ 26.34

    Prevalent among classicists today is the notion that Greeks, Romans, and Jews enhanced their own self-perception by contrasting themselves with the so-called Other--Egyptians, Phoenicians, Ethiopians, Gauls, and other foreigners--frequently through hostile stereotypes, distortions, and caricature. In this provocative book, Erich Gruen demonstrates... more...

  • War Before Civilizationby Lawrence H. Keeley

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 19.99

    For the last fifty years, most popular and scholarly works have agreed that prehistoric warfare was rare, harmless, and unimportant.

Lawrence Keeley's groundbreaking War Before Civilization offers a devastating... more...

    Seven Stories Press 2011; US$ 10.95

    "Negative ethnicity" is Koigi wa Wamwere’s name for the deep-seated tensions in Africa that the world has seen flare so terrifyingly.

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 163.00

    Today, ethnic violence accounts for the majority of the world's conflicts. The question is how ethnic difference is to be recognized. The task is to pre-empt destructive forms of interaction between states and peoples. Autonomy arrangements have, since the 1920s, helped to resolve ethno-national conflicts in Europe. Measures include cultural independence... more...

  • The Multiculturalism of Fearby Jacob T. Levy

    OUP Oxford 2000; US$ 84.99

  • War! What Is It Good For?by Ian Morris

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 14.00

    A powerful and provocative exploration of how war has changed our society—for the better "War! . . . . / What is it good for? / Absolutely nothing," says the famous song—but archaeology, history, and biology show that war in fact has been good for something. Surprising as it sounds, war has made humanity safer and richer. In War! What Is It... more...
