    Indiana University Press 2013; US$ 21.99

    Recent inquiries into the concept of the gift have been largely male-dominated and thus have ignored important aspects of the gift from a woman?s point of view.

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 16.50

    The crime melodramas of the 1940s known now as film noir shared many formal and thematic elements, from unusual camera angles and lighting to moral ambiguity and femmes fatales.

    Why do we travel? Ostensibly an act of leisure, travel finds us thrusting ourselves into jets flying miles above the earth, only to endure dislocations of time and space, foods and languages foreign to our body and mind, and encounters with strangers on whom we must suddenly depend. Travel is not merely a break from routine; it is its antithesis,... more...
