  • The Metaphysics of Detective Marloweby Mircea Mihaies

    Lexington Books 2013; US$ 79.99

  • Talking Shopby Peter Betjemann

    University of Virginia Press 2011; US$ 35.00

    Describing everything from bread and cappuccinos to mass-market furnishings, a language of the "artisanal" saturates our culture today. That language, Peter Betjemann proposes, has a rich and specifiable history. Between 1840 and 1920, the cultural appetite for handmade chairs, tables, cabinets, and other material odds and ends flowed through narrative... more...
