    NYU Press 2012; US$ 89.00

    Regnery Publishing 2008; US$ 29.99

    You've heard of the "Great Books"? These are their evil opposites.

And yet these authors' bad ideas... more...

    Palgrave Macmillan 1992; US$ 200.00

    The Celts are commonly considered to be one of the great peoples of Europe, with continuous racial, cultural and linguistic genealogy from the Iron Age to the modern-day 'Celtic fringe'.

    Hong Kong University Press, HKU 2007; US$ 32.50

  • Engaging Europeby Evlyn Gould; Jr. George J. Sheridan

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2005; US$ 27.99

    What and where and who is Europe?

Instead, Europe is a question to be answered by the teachers and students who study it. A collaborative and multidisciplinary collection,... more...

  • Through a glass, darklyby W. Arts

    BRILL 2000; US$ 74.00

    The question this text addresses is whether our images of cultural tradition and modernity in East and West, in past and present, are so blurred that we look at them as through a glass, darkly? The contributors argue for greater understanding and communication between cultures. more...

    University of Minnesota Press 2007; US$ 24.95

    A Call for Heresy discovers unexpected common ground in one of the most inflammatory issues of the twenty-first century: the deepening conflict between the Islamic world and the United States.
