  • "Herbst des Mittelalters"?by Martin Pickavé; Jan A. Aertsen

    De Gruyter 2004; US$ 307.00

    The relationship between the Late Middle Ages and the beginning of modern times is still being controversially discussed. Some view the 14th and 15th century as a period of decline, others emphasize this era?s formative and innovative role in modern times. Volume 31 of Miscellanea Mediaevalia takes an interdisciplinary look at this period while addressing... more...

    Vittorio Klostermann 2012; US$ 104.21

    Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts sehen sich sowohl Frankreich als auch Spanien durch die immer zahlreicheren Übersetzungen aus dem Russischen einer "Invasion aus dem Osten" gegenüber. In Frankreich entbrennt eine Diskussion, für die die russische Literatur zwar den Anstoß gibt, in der jedoch zugleich im Medium der Literaturkritik Fragen nach dem... more...

  • (Re-)Writing the Radicalby Maike Oergel

    De Gruyter 2012; US$ 140.00

    The essays in this volume discuss the overlap between philosophical, aesthetic, and political concerns in the 1790s either in the work of individuals or in the transfer of cultural materials across national borders, which tended to entail adaptation and transformation. What emerges is a clearer understanding of the ?fate? of the Enlightenment, its... more...

  • 10 Books that Screwed Up the Worldby Benjamin Wiker

    Regnery Publishing 2008; US$ 29.99

    You've heard of the "Great Books"? These are their evil opposites. From Machiavelli's The Prince to Karl Marx's The Communist Manifesto to Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, these "influential" books have led to war, genocide, totalitarian oppression, family breakdown, and disastrous social experiments. And yet these authors' bad ideas... more...

  • 1308by Andreas Speer; David Wirmer

    De Gruyter 2010; US$ 293.00

    This volume is dedicated to the year 1308. Its object is to open new perspectives with an invitation to reconsider our habitual viewpoints, to sharpen and extend them - by considering the year 1308, but also going beyond that year and its historical periphery. Beginning with a detailed local description, attention is drawn to a variety of thematic... more...

  • 1616by Thomas Christensen

    Counterpoint 2012; US$ 29.95

    The world of 1616 was a world of motion. Enormous galleons carrying silk and silver across the Pacific created the first true global economy, and the first international megacorporations were emerging as economic powers. In Europe, the deaths of Shakespeare and Cervantes marked the end of an era in literature, as the spirit of the Renaissance was... more...

  • The 2030 Spikeby Colin Mason

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 50.00

    The clock is relentlessly ticking!

  • Against Empireby Zillah Eisenstein

    Zed Books 2004; US$ 34.95

    In Against Empire, Zillah Eisenstein extends her critique of neoliberal globalization and its capture of democratic possibilities.

  • Age of the Sagesby Mark W. Muesse

    Fortress Press 2013; US$ 24.99

    By setting traditions and thinkers such as Zoroaster, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Gautama Buddha, Confucius, Pythagoras, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle side by side, we are able to see more clearly the questions with which they struggled, their similarities and differences, and how their ideas have influenced religious thought down to our day. more...
