  • The Sexual Revolution in Modern American Literatureby I. Glicksberg

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.28

    1. The Dialectic of the Sex-Motif in Literature Sex is a function of culture; in literature today it plays only a small though aggressively righteous part. Nature, long held in bondage, periodically breaks out in revolt, but its victory is never complete. In every society, prim­ itive as well as modem, the sexual instinct is for good or evil always... more...

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 86.96

    This study represents the unexpected outcome of an enquiry into the resources for the study of the medieval history of East Central Europe. While reading sources for a planned survey of medieval Poland, Bo­ hemia, Hungary, and Croatia, it became apparent to me that many current presentations of the history of Bohemia and Moravia were not based on viable... more...

  • Selected Exercises in Galactic Astronomyby I. Atanasijevic

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 92.76

    Galactic Astronomy is, and for some time to come will certainly remain, one of the more important items in the astronomy curricula. There are at present a number of excellent text-books and monographs covering the whole subject or certain of its aspects. It seems however that there is not a single book where at least some of the more important problems... more...

  • Literature and Societyby I. Glicksberg

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 89.28

    1. Prolegomena The purpose of this book is to examine anew and from a number of different perspectives the highly complex and controversial relation between literature and society. This is not meant to be a study in sociology or political science; the analysis of literature - its structure, content, function, and effect - is our primary concern. What... more...

  • Biochemical Responses to Environmental Stressby I. Bernstein

    Springer US 2012; US$ 89.28

    In the world outside the laboratory, life goes on in a chang­ ing rather than in a constant environment and organisms must continually accommodate to changes in temperature, light, humidity, nutrition, etc. Since studies of the enzymatic process, in vitro, indicate that, in general, biological catalysis can proceed only over limited ranges of temperature,... more...

  • Die politische und wirtschaftliche Rolle der asiatischen Minderheit in Ostafrikaby I. Rothermund

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2013; US$ 41.90

    Die »indische" Frage in Ostafrika hat bevolkerungs- und wirtschafts­ politisch angesichts der Veranderungen, die sich in diesem Raum wahrend der letzten zehn Jahre anbahnten, eine besondere Aktualitat erreicht.
