VSA01-004 Routledge Companion to Shen Congwen
  Zhou Gang/ 9780815368861/ Price:£ 200.00
Book Cover This volume is about studies of Shen Congwen (1902–1988), one of the most important writers in modern China, but more importantly, it is about how Shen Congwen has been received in and beyond Mainland China. By presenting the best literary criticism on Shen Congwen in Mainland China over the past 80 years, and views of how Shen Congwen has been understood, interpreted, and appreciated in Japan, the US, and Europe, the editors propose a new way to approach the topics of canonic writers, modern Chinese literature, and world literature. This is itself a translated project. Its Chinese edition appeared in May 2017. The bilingual rendering of the best criticism of Shen Congwen from a global perspective intends to initiate and advance dialogues between Chinese- and English- language scholarly communities. We strive to explore the complexities of “worldwide” images and interpretations of Shen Congwen. By calling attention to the foreign spaces into which overseas Shen Congwens and modern Chinese literature are reborn as world literature, we acknowledge and celebrate the study of Shen Congwen and modern Chinese literature as ongoing and endless cross-cultural dialogues and manifestations.

VSA01 The Routledge Research Companion to Anglo-Italian Renaissance Literature and Culture
  Michele Marrapodi/ 9781472410733/ Price:£ 190.00
Book Cover The aim of this Companion volume is to provide scholars and advanced graduate students with a comprehensive and authoritative state-of-the-art review of current research work on Anglo-Italian Renaissance studies. Written by a team of international scholars and experts in the field, the chapters are grouped into two large areas of influence and intertextuality, corresponding to the dual way in which early modern England looked upon the Italian world from the English perspective – Part 1: "Italian literature and culture" and Part 2: "Appropriations and ideologies". In the first part, prominent Italian authors, artists, and thinkers are examined as a direct source of inspiration, imitation, and divergence. The variegated English response to the cultural, ideological, and political implications of pervasive Italian intertextuality, in interrelated aspects of artistic and generic production, is dealt with in the second part. Constructed on the basis of a largely interdisciplinary approach, the volume offers an in-depth and wide-ranging treatment of the multifaceted ways in which Italy’s material world and its iconologies are represented, appropriated, and exploited in the literary and cultural domain of early modern England. For this reason, contributors were asked to write essays that not only reflect current thinking but also point to directions for future research and scholarship, while a purposefully conceived bibliography of primary and secondary sources and a detailed index round off the volume.

Together, the 25 essays and the editors’ introduction offer a comprehensive and authoritative reflection of the state of travel writing criticism and lay the ground for future developments.

  Shinichi Miyazawa/ 9789814591164/ Price:US$ 300.00
Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843–1929) was a legendary British diplomat, a key figure in East Asia and Anglo–Japanese/Chinese relations, particularly in Bakumatsu (1853–1867) and Meiji Era Japan (1868–1912), and in China after the Boxer Rebellion (1900–1906). He also served in Siam (present-day Thailand), Uruguay and Morocco, and represented Britain at the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1907.

In Praise of the Bicycle
  Marc Auge/ 9781789141382/ Price:£ 9.99
Book Cover This is the French anthropologist as we've never heard him before: Marc Auge coined the term ‘non-place’ to describe uniquitous, global airports, hotels and motorways filled with anonymous individuals. In this new book, he casts his anthropologist’s eye on a subject close to his heart: cycling. In In Praise of the Bicycle, Auge takes us on a personal journey of his own, on a two-wheeled ride around our cities, and on a journey into ourselves. We all remember the thrill of riding a bike for the first time and the joys of cycling. Here he reminds us that these memories are not just personal, but rooted in a time and a place, in a history that is shared with millions of others. Part memoir, part manifesto, Auge celebrates cycling as a way of reconnecting with the places in which we live, and, ultimately, as a necessary alternative to our disconnected world.

VSA01-003 The Routledge Companion to World Literature and World History
  May Hawas/ 9781138921658/ Price:£ 190.00

Including work from leading academics in the field, as well as newer voices, the Companion is ideal for students and scholars alike.
VSA01-003 The Routledge Handbook of International Beat Literature
  A. Robert Lee/ 9780415785457/ Price:£ 190.00
Book Cover Beat literature? Have not the great canonical names long grown familiar? Ginsberg, Kerouac, Burroughs. Likewise the frontline texts, still controversial in some quarters, assume their place in modern American literary history. On the Road serves as Homeric journey epic. "Howl" amounts to Beat anthem, confessional outcry against materialism and war. Naked Lunch, with its dark satiric laughter, envisions a dystopian world of power and word virus. But if these are all essentially America-centered, Beat has also had quite other literary exhalations and which invite far more than mere reception study. These are voices from across the Americas of Canada and Mexico, the Anglophone world of England, Scotland or Australia, the Europe of France or Italy and from the Mediterranean of Greece and the Maghreb, and from Scandinavia and Russia, together with the Asia of Japan and China. This anthology of essays maps relevant other kinds of Beat voice, names, texts. The scope is hemispheric, Atlantic and Pacific, West and East. It gives recognition to the Beat inscribed in languages other than English and reflective of different cultural histories. Likewise the majority of contributors come from origins or affiliations beyond the US, whether in a different English or languages spanning Spanish, Danish, Turkish, Greek, or Chinese. The aim is to recognize an enlarged Beat literary map, its creative internationalism.

SA01-476 The Good Brexiteers Guide to English Lit
  John Sutherland/ 9781780239927/ Price:£ 12.00
Book Cover What is Nigel Farage’s favourite novel? Why do Brexiteers love Sherlock Holmes? Is Philip Larkin the best Brexit poet ever? Through the politically relevant side-road of English literature, John Sutherland quarries the great literary minds of English history to assemble the ultimate reading list for Brexiteers. What happened to Britain on 24 June 2016 shook the country to its roots. The Brexit vote changed Britain. But despite its referendum victory, Brexit is peculiarly hollow. It is an idea without political apparatus, without sustaining history, without field-tested ideology. Without thinkers. It is like Frankenstein waiting for the lightning bolt. In this irreverent and entertaining new guide, Sutherland suggests some stuffing for the ideological vacuity at the heart of the Brexit cause. He looks for jingoistic meaning in the works of William Shakespeare, Jane Austen and Thomas Hardy, in modern classics like The Queen and I and London Fields, and in the national anthem, school songs and great poetry of the country. Sutherland explores what Britain meant, means and will mean, and subtly shows how great literary works have a shaping influence on the world. Witty and insightful, and with a preface by John Crace, this book belongs on the shelves of all good, bragging Brexiteers and many diehard Remoaners too.

Power And Probity In A DC Cooperative: The Life and Death of Sursum Corda
  John C Hirsh/ 9780998643380/ Price:US$ 26.00
Book Cover This book recounts in detail the negotiations, internal and external struggles, and the outcome of an attempt by HUD, the City of Washington, and several developers to acquire a Washington, D.C. apartment complex known as Sursum Corda. The book begins with an account of a particularly horrific murder that took place in Sursum Corda in 2004, and shows how it was used, in the press and elsewhere, to attack the Community as a whole, and to use it as a reason that the Community should be disbanded, and the land on which it stood be dedicated to other purposes. It proceeds as a journal, kept intermittently between 2005 and 2017, by Professor John C. Hirsh of Georgetown University, who during that period directed an undergraduate tutorial program there in which Georgetown undergraduates travelled twice a week to instruct the K-6 children who live at Sursum Corda in the Language Arts, primarily in reading and writing. Because of his long association with the community he was appointed a non-voting (because non-resident) member of the Board that directs the Community affairs, as was his former student and friend Shiv Newaldass, a Georgetown graduate, whose family has long lived there.

The Astrologer's Sparrow: Poems
  Panna Naik/ 9781732698819/ Price:US$ 20.00
Poetry in the Americas: A Poet’s Voice from India in the United States of America. In an interview, Panna Naik writes: “… while my life in the United States seemed to be full of activity, my life within was terribly lonely. When I met and heard Anne Sexton…the sincerity and transparency in her poems did magic to my inner world. She inspired me to write about myself and give a voice to women around me.” As she interweaves her experiences and the experiences of women around her in India and the USA, Panna Naik uses imagery and symbols from the world of nature that she remembers from India as well as the imagery and symbols from the world of nature, which she encounters in the United States. Panna’s poetic expressions of nature as well as of human experiences from both worlds work extremely well within the intellectual and emotional poetic traditions of both worlds, of India and of the United States of America.

VSA01-002 The Shakespearean World
  Levenson, Jill L./ 9780415732529/ Price:£ 190.00
Book Cover The Shakespearean World takes a global view of Shakespeare and his works, especially their afterlives. Constantly changing, the Shakespeare central to this volume has acquired an array of meanings over the past four centuries. "Shakespeare" signifies the historical person, as well as the plays and verse attributed to him. It also signifies the attitudes towards both author and works determined by their receptions. Throughout the book, specialists aim to situate Shakespeare’s world and what the world is because of him. In adopting a global perspective, the volume arranges thirty-six chapters in five parts: •Shakespeare on stage internationally since the late seventeenth century; •Shakespeare on film throughout the world; •Shakespeare in the arts beyond drama and performance; •Shakespeare in everyday life; •Shakespeare and critical practice. Through its coverage, The Shakespearean World offers a comprehensive transhistorical and international view of the ways this Shakespeare has not only influenced but has also been influenced by diverse cultures during 400 years of performance, adaptation, criticism, and citation. While each chapter is a freshly conceived introduction to a significant topic, all of the chapters move beyond the level of survey, suggesting new directions in Shakespeare studies – such as ecology, tourism, and new media – and making substantial contributions to the field. This volume is an essential resource for all those studying Shakespeare, from beginners to advanced specialists.

VSA01-002 The Routledge Handbook of Shakespeare and Memory
  Hiscock, Andrew/ 9781138816763/ Price:£ 180.00
Book Cover The Routledge Handbook of Shakespeare and Memory introduces this vibrant field of study to students and scholars, whilst defining and extending critical debates in the area. The book begins with a series of "Critical Introductions" offering an overview of memory in particular areas of Shakespeare such as theatre, print culture, visual arts, post-colonial adaptation and new media. These essays both introduce the topic but also explore specific areas such as the way in which Shakespeare’s representation in the visual arts created a national and then a global poet. The entries then develop into more specific studies of the genre of Shakespeare, with sections on Tragedy, History, Comedy and Poetry, which include insightful readings of specific key plays. The book ends with a state of the art review of the area, charting major contributions to the debate, and illuminating areas for further study. The international range of contributors explore the nature of memory in religious, political, emotional and economic terms which are not only relevant to Shakespearean times, but to the way we think and read now.

  Goodson, Ivor/ 9781138784291/ Price:£ 200.00

VA01-154 J. R. R. Tolkien, 4-Vols/Set.
  Lee, Stuart/ 9781138889774/ Price:£ 1035.00
Book Cover J. R. R. Tolkien (1892–1973) is widely regarded as one of the most important writers of the twentieth century. His popularity began with the publication in 1937 of The Hobbit, and was cemented by the appearance of The Lord of the Rings in the early 1950s. However, engagement with his work was until relatively recently sidelined by literary and other scholars. Consequently, many foundational analyses of his fiction, and his work as a medievalist, are dispersed in hard-to-find monographs and obscure journals (often produced by dedicated amateurs). In contrast, over the last decade or so, academic interest in Tolkien has risen dramatically. Indeed, interpretative and critical commentary is now being generated on a bewildering scale, in part aided by the continuing posthumous publication of his work (most recently, his Beowulftranslation which appeared in 2014). The dizzying quantity—and variable quality—of this later criticism makes it difficult to discriminate the useful from the tendentious, superficial, and otiose. Now, in four volumes, a new collection from Routledge’s Critical Assessments of Major Writers series meets the need for an authoritative reference work to collect early evaluations and to make sense of the more recent explosion in research output. Users are now able easily and rapidly to locate the best and most influential critical assessments. With material gathered into one easy-to-use set, Tolkien researchers and students can now spend more of their time with the key journal articles, book chapters, and other pieces, rather than on time-consuming (and sometimes fruitless) archival searches.
VA01-152 Indian Travel Writing, 1830-1947, 5-Vols/Set.
  Nayar, Pramod K./ 9781138811171/ Price:£ 1035.00
Book Cover Indian Travel Writing is a new five-volume collection co-published by Routledge and Edition Synapse. Hitherto, the paucity of readily available travel writing produced by imperial subjects themselves has long been apparent, and this anthology addresses that lack. A veritable treasure-trove, it brings together scarce documents which are currently widely dispersed or very difficult for scholars, researchers, and students across the globe to locate and use. The collection confirms the deeply cosmopolitan sensibility possessed by many Indian travellers, and their narratives provide insightful contemporary critiques of the British Empire and of Euro-American culture more generally. The gathered works often exhibit considerable expertise in local cuisine, politics, and poetry, as well as a keen interest in political theory, human rights, and class conflict. Beyond Britain, continental Europe, and the USA, the collection also includes writing by Indians who travelled to Russia, China, the Far East, Australia, and Africa. Indian Travel Writing draws on the narratives of a diverse range of writers, including Indian princes, statesmen, lawyers, reformers, sportsmen, artists and curators, politicians, and merchants. Each piece is reproduced in facsimile, giving users a strong sense of immediacy to the texts and permitting citation to the original pagination. The collection will be particularly welcomed by historians and those working in colonial-discourse studies. It will also be of interest to anthropologists and literary scholars. Each volume is supplemented by a substantial introduction, newly written by the editor, Pramod K. Nayar. The collection also includes a detailed appendix providing data on the provenance of the gathered materials.
SA01-460 Methods and Materials of Literary Criticism: An overview.
  Frey, James/ 9781682503522/ Price:US$ 145.00
Book Cover Literary criticism is the evaluation, analysis, description, or interpretation of literary works. It is usually in the form of a critical essay, but in-depth book reviews can sometimes be considered literary criticism. Criticism may examine a particular literary work, or may look at an author’s writings as a whole. Finding literary criticism can be challenging. The functions of literary criticism vary widely, ranging from the reviewing of books as they are published to systematic theoretical discussion.
SA01-460 English Literary Criticism and Theory.
  Carle, Eoin/ 9781682503591/ Price:US$ 145.00
Book Cover English literature is hundreds of years old and continues to be one of the most popular courses of study in high schools and universities around the world. Learn about what defines English literature and a few of its greatest writers. English literature is the study of literature written in the English language. Literary criticism is the study, evaluation, and interpretation of literature. Modern literary criticism is often influenced by literary theory, which is the philosophical discussion of literature’s goals and methods. Though the two activities are closely related, literary critics are not always, and have not always been, theorists. This incredibly useful book offers an introduction to the history of literary criticism and theory from ancient Greece to the present.

Is The Moon The Center Of The Universe?: A Reassessment of Many Things in Humorous Verse
  Sabrina P. Ramet/ 9780998147796/ Price:US$ 24.00
Is the Moon the Center of the Universe? is a collection of mostly humorous verse rooted in an appreciation of the absurd and the ridiculous. A few of the verses take their cue from real persons, such as “The secret history of Duncan MacDougall”, who hoped to prove the existence of the soul by weighing dying patients just before and just after death, or “Mad Anthony Wayne”, a verse very loosely based on the life of an officer in the American Revolutionary Army, or again “Church-run brothels”, which actually existed in the 1300s and 1400s. Most of the verses are, however, pure fiction. These range from the play on astronomers’ notion that “The universe is expanding” to suggest that my neighbor’s house is, by that virtue, gradually moving away from mine, to the kleptomaniac in “In the confessional”, who confesses to the priest that he has stolen the church’s altar, to the playful “On Dumpledy-Down”, to the paranoid ravings of “Should I be concerned”, in which the speaker worries about neighbors having plastic surgery so that they can look just like him. A few of the verses in the collection were inspired by news stories, such as the verse “Don’t you be sexing, here in Uganda”. Several of them are set to well-known tunes such as “Deck the halls with boughs of fungus”, “Yo-ho yo, a professor’s life for me”, “Father Christmas and Mr. Holly” (set to the tune of “God rest ye merry gentlemen”), “Dental work in Tijuana” (set to the tune of “White Christmas”), and “Gonna ride the big one soon” (set to the tune of “Dream a little dream of me”). Whether you are wondering if your mother is a virgin or looking for life on golf balls on one of Jupiter’s moons or wanting to catch your neighbor in the act of worshiping your dog, this collection packs in enough hilarious lunacy to send any reader into paroxysms of laughter.
Inside Outside: Poems
  Sue Silver/ 9780998643304/ Price:US$ 20.00

No Barking in the Hallways: Poems from the Classroom
  Ann Bracken/ 9780998147703/ Price:US$ 20.00
Book Cover No Barking in the Hallways: Poems from the Classroom, offers readers a window into the stories of teachers and students as they struggle to be successful in our test-obsessed culture. "Frankly, there isn't anyone you couldn't learn to love once you've heard their story.” Those words of the beloved Fred Rogers, star of the long-running PBS children’s show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood, serve as the catalyst for the narrative poems that detail the author’s experiences as a teacher. The reader will discover some of the emotional baggage that many adolescents carry, baggage that interferes with their ability to focus and to learn in school, and will find out what’s actually happening in today’s public school classrooms. Readers will encounter many people to cheer for and many “reforms” that deserve questioning when they meet the students and teachers of No Barking in the Hallways.
Orwell's Nose: A Pathological Biography
  John Sutherland/ 9781780238265/ Price:£ 9.99
Book Cover In 2012 John Sutherland permanently lost his sense of smell. At about the same time he embarked on a re-reading of George Orwell’s works, and his lack of olfactory sense cast an entirely new light on the re-evaluation. What he now noticed was just how acutely attuned to scent Orwell was: rich descriptions of odours, fetors and reeks occur throughout his works, from Winston Smith’s apartment building in Nineteen Eighty-Four: ‘The hallway smelt of boiled cabbage and old rag mats’, to John Flory’s concubine Ma Hla May in Burmese Days: ‘A mingled scent of sandalwood, garlic, coconut oil and the jasmine in her hair floated from her.’ Orwell’s Nose, now available in paperback, is an original and imaginative account of the life and work of George Orwell, exploring the ‘scent narratives’ that abound in Orwell’s fiction and non-fiction. Along the way the author elucidates questions that remain unanswered in previous biographies, and addresses gaps in the evidence of the writer’s life and legacy. This illuminating and irreverent book provides a new understanding of one of our most iconic and influential writers.

VSA01-001 Routledge Handbook of Modern Japanese Literature
  Hutchinson, Rachael/ 9781138792296/ Price:£ 200.00
Book Cover The Routledge Handbook of Modern Japanese Literature provides a comprehensive overview of how we study Japanese literature today. Rather than taking a purely chronological approach to the content, the chapters survey the state of the field through a number of pressing issues and themes, examining the ways in which it is possible to read modern Japanese literature and situate it in relation to critical theory. The Handbook examines various modes of literary production (such as fiction, poetry, and critical essays) as distinct forms of expression that nonetheless are closely interrelated. Attention is drawn to the idea of the bunjin as a ‘person of letters’ and a more realistic assessment is provided of how writers have engaged with ideas – not labelled a ‘novelist’ or ‘poet’, but a ‘writer’ who may at one time or another choose to write in various forms. The book provides an overview of major authors and genres by situating them within broader themes that have defined the way writers have produced literature in modern Japan, as well as how those works have been read and understood by different readers in different time periods. The Routledge Handbook of Modern Japanese Literature draws from an international array of established experts in the field as well as promising young researchers. It represents a wide variety of critical approaches, giving the study a broad range of perspectives. This handbook will be of interest to students and scholars of Asian Studies, Literature, Sociology, Critical Theory, and History.

Life Upon the Wicked Stage: A Memoir.
  Cavalieri, Grace/ 9780986435348/ Price:US$ 24.00
Book Cover This book chronicles a career in writing poetry, broadcasting, publishing, teaching, and writing for theater. The book notes important events that have made life so colorful and enjoyable, including anecdotes about the Poets Laureate of the U.S. I’ve interviewed for radio. Memory is not chronological and so neither are the chapters in this memoir, I wish each chapter would be read like a discrete essay, for chronology is not the book’s purpose. I cross back and forth across time to capture the past as it comes to me.

The Altar of Innocence: Poems.
  Bracken, Ann/ 9780990693956/ Price:US$ 22.00
Book Cover The Altar of Innocence is about a mother who is an unfulfilled artist and a daughter who struggles to untangle the web of her mother’s depression, alcoholism, and suicide attempt. As the daughter grows into a woman, she experiences her own confrontation with depression and a crumbling marriage. Deeply dissatisfied with the explanation of depression as a chemical imbalance in the brain, she peers into her own dark night of the soul and undertakes a spiritual journey. In order to finally claim her voice, she must overcome the patriarchy of the mental health system, challenge her treatment options, and navigate an increasingly difficult relationship with her husband. The poems in The Altar of Innocence come from my heart and from the sincere desire to share my journey in the hopes that others may find courage and inspiration.
The Ideological Transformation of 20th Century Chinese Literature, 2-vols/set.
  Xie Mian/ 9781623201227/ Price:US$ 158.00
Book Cover The 20th century was an era of tremendous changes for Chinese society, and these changes shaped the development of Chinese literature as revealed in The Ideological Transformation of 20th Century Chinese Literature. Rulers in the late-Qing dynasty era were subjected to unwilling reforms which saw the abolition of the “eight-legged” essays and the imperial examination as these had notoriously restricted the thinking of the Chinese literati. Shortly after the fall of the Qing, leaders of the New Culture Movement started to promote vernacular literature, stressed the need for a re-examination of the ancient classics, and championed the popularization of Western values. After that, Chinese literature was taken on a completely different trajectory, not only in stylistic terms but also in ideological ones. The Ideological Transformation of 20th Century Chinese Literature is the fruit of poet and critic Xie Mian’s decades-long study of contemporary Chinese literature during his earlier years as a professor at Peking University. Grouped thematically and in accordance with the periods in discussion, this collection of nearly 50 essays provides an integrated examination of the historical backdrop and ideologies that underpinned Chinese literature from the days of the New Culture Movement to the New Era beyond the Cultural Revolution through a mix of microscopic criticisms and macroscopic overviews.

Canons and Connections: A Network Theory Approach to the Study of Literary Systems with Specific Reference to Afrikaans Poetry.
  Senekal, Burgert A./ 9780990447160/ Price:US$ 24.00
Book Cover The study of literary systems or fields is a well-established approach, particularly in reference to Afrikaans literature. Of course, agents in social systems make their own decisions, but as a whole, decisions about what is considered ‘literature’ are made within the system itself. No single entity can be responsible for a poet’s position in the center of the network: It is through the combined efforts of all role players that works become central or peripheral in the literary system. This study takes a new look at the literary system from the perspective of network theory. It is shown how the literary network shares important topological features with other complex networks, and at the node level, the book discusses who the key players are in the contemporary Afrikaans poetry network from 2000 to 2012, based on degree-, betweenness-, and closeness centrality. It is also shown how an entity's overall position at the core or on the periphery can be established, and through some examples, the book illustrates how the relationships between poets, critics, scholars, publishing houses, newspapers, websites, journals and magazines all contribute to an entity's overall position in the network. As such, the book aims at a more quantitative analysis of a literary system.

Including the Chicano southwest of California, Texas, Arizona, Colarado, New Mexico, and Nevada, together with the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, and its Manhattan offshoot, Spanish Harlem, the Cuban America of Florida, as well as the many smaller communities whose origins lie in Central and South America, and the Spanish-speaking Caribbean, Hispanic and Latino Americans are now the largest ethnic minority in the United States.

VA01-145 Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 2-Vols/Set.
  Dawson, Clara/ 9780415507004/ Price:£ 635.00
Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806–61) was the foremost female poet of her day, to the extent that in 1850 she was mooted as a serious candidate for the Poet Laureate. With the publication in 2010 of a definitive five-volume edition of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s poetry—the first full scholarly edition in a hundred years—this long-awaited collection on Barrett Browning’s work from Routledge’s acclaimed Critical Heritage series is both timely and desirable. After languishing for most of the twentieth century, critical study of Barrett has flourished over the past thirty years, focusing largely on her importance as both a female—and a political—poet. Particularly after her death in 1861, assessments of Barrett have been bound up with gender politics, and in order to partake fully in this—and other—debates, scholars and students need to be able to consult the key primary materials: the reviews and letters which are currently scattered widely across online databases, archives in Texas and Florence, and in anthologies of letters. This new two-volume set from Routledge brings together a careful selection from the vast number of reviews of Elizabeth Barrett and traces the intersecting issues of Barrett as both a female and a political poet. The collection is organized chronologically, drawing attention to particular trends and changes in Barrett’s reception. As well as her success in Britain, Barrett also became popular in America and Italy, and this Routledge Critical Heritage collection includes sections on her Italian and American reception, including newly translated essays currently available only in Italian.

GA01-201 The Literature of Propaganda, 3-Vols/Set.
  / 9781558628588/ Price:US$ 560.00
Book Cover Throughout history, propaganda has been used in one form another to influence the public opinion for or against one cause or another. From early theater, to public speeches, to magazines, books, film and more, propaganda pervades our society. Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary defines propaganda as "2: the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person 3: ideas, facts, or allegations spread deliberately to further one's cause or to damage an opposing cause; also: a public action having such an effect." How is propaganda described in literature? How is it used to influence our views? How do we recognize a work as propaganda? Literature Of Propaganda showcases propaganda portrayed in literature: Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. It also features literature that was specifically created as propaganda or used in that way: The Moon is Down by John Steinbeck, and The Leopard's Spots; The Clansman; The Traitor by Thomas Dixon. Finally, it explores works that deliver a vision as described by an influential leader: Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler, Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-Tung by Mao Tse-Tung, The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
GA01-200 The Literature of Autobiographical Narrative, 3-Vols/Set.
  / 9781558628700/ Price:US$ 560.00
Book Cover Every one of us is a witness to history. The times we live in will be studied and analyzed by future generations, just as we currently study and analyze the past. Autobiographies, oral histories, diaries and journals are records of the human experience, snapshots of a time and place that are brought to life in our consciousness through words on a page. In reading these works, we bear witness to and come to better understand the societies, cultures, and experiences of the past directly from the people who lived during those periods. Gale's Literature Of Society Series, The Literature Of Autobiographical Narrative is a three volume set examining works that chronicle a life or are compiled from narrated memories. This helps us understand history more from a personal, rather than historical, level. Three hundred engaging entries focuses on autobiographies, diaries, journals and oral histories from around the world and various time periods to bring us closer to the human experience of history. Some entries look at those who carry on the tradition of oral history, such the West African Griot, Scandinavian Skald, British and Gaelic bards, Native American storytellers, and more.
Lost Masterpieces of Euro-American Drama: Ten Plays.
  Cardullo, Bert/ 9780988637610/ Price:US$ 34.00
Much has been made of the gains of the multicultural reconstruction of the canon of world drama, but what about the works that have been abandoned to make room for the new ones? Lost Masterpieces of Euro-American Drama brings together ten plays that have been dropped from the major anthologies of world drama over the past twenty years, in order to examine the consequences of the new canonization for our understanding of the development of dramatic form. Those plays are Goldoni’s The Servant of Two Masters (1743), Musset’s No Trifling with Love (1834), Gogol’s The Inspector General (1836), Hebbel’s Maria Magdalene (1844), Tolstoy’s The Power of Darkness (1886), Yeats’s The Countess Cathleen (1892), Wedekind’s Earth Spirit (1895), C(apek’s R.U.R. (1920), Hecht and MacArthur’s The Front Page (1928), and Sartre’s No Exit (1944).
The Swallows of Monte Cassino.
  Janeczek, Helena/ 9780989916905/ Price:US$ 26.00
The four month long battle at Monte Cassino in southern Italy was one of the bloodiest of World War II. In this highly original novel, Janeczek retells that 1944 battle from the point of view of the Maori, Gurkha, Polish, North African, small-town American and other Allied foot soldiers who fought and died under German fire near that 6th century Benedictine abbey. Twined through the battle is another story, a memory of the drowned and the saved in Janeczek’s own family in wartime Eastern Europe, where Jews who did not go to Nazi death camps went to Soviet gulag camps, and sometimes survived, and even went on to fight at Monte Cassino. A powerful reflection on all the ways that rights can be taken from us.
Make Marzipan, Not War: Crazy Rhymes for Crazy Times.
  Ramet, Sabrina P./ 9780988637672/ Price:US$ 24.00
Think of this as a course catalogue, with courses arranged into departments. If you are going to enroll in this university, you should consider what interests you before picking your major, since you might be disappointed if you were to pick a major which is not interesting for you. So, if your interest is extraterrestrials, then majoring in astronomy should be your choice. Or, to take another example, if you want to be a TSA official at an airport, then majoring in home economics and transportation would be a better choice. If you are not sure what you find interesting, then we suggest that you major in literature and linguistics, since you will find everything reflected there. Looking to the future, be sure to check out our placement service, which guarantees to find you a position upon graduation. And finally, in our department of archeology, a few old artifacts are dug up from Pets of the Great Dictators and other works (2006; 2nd ed. 2008), and from Cheese Pirates: Humorous verse for adult children (2011). In closing, as the great French mathematician and philosopher Rene' Descartes once noted, if you really want to live, first think about it.
DC Undercover.
  Bartoli, Oscar/ 9780986021688/ Price:US$ 22.00
The world’s economy is faced with a momentous change in direction: the need to reduce, and then abandon, its reliance on fossil fuel energy and adopt alternative sources without resorting to nuclear power. Against this backdrop, the interests of two opposing geopolitical agendas engage in both legal and criminal activities to gain the upper hand. This face-off involves the President of the United States as he is personally committed to transparent, but risky, support of renewable energy technology. The end goal is the overthrow of a century long oil-based culture.
In Black Bear Country.
  Waters, Maureen/ 9780988637603/ Price:US$ 20.00
In this book of poems the bears are intended to suggest unpredictability, the mysterious and dangerous aspects of experience as well as the possibility of love. The poems are rooted in a changing landscape ranging from the Hudson River Valley to Manhattan, and further back in time, to the West coast of Ireland, from which the writer’s parents emigrated. Arriving in New York in the twenties, they brought memories of famine and civil war as well as strong cultural values. The writer is haunted by their sense of another world, particularly after the death of her son. The poems attempt to work out a reconciliation between radically different perspectives, knowing there is no satisfactory way of doing so. Yet, Seamus Heaney has observed, “As long as the coordinates of the imagined thing correspond to those of the world that we live in and endure, poetry is fulfilling its counterweighting function. It becomes another truth to which we have recourse, before which we can know ourselves in a more fully empowered way.”

VA01-138 James Joyce, 4-Vols/Set.
  Milton, Colin/ 9780415491822/ Price:£ 970.00
Book Cover James Augustine Aloysius Joyce (1882–1941) is a towering figure in the development of English-language modernist prose fiction. And his influence extends well beyond the anglophone literary world; like his alter ego, Stephen Dedalus, Joyce flew by the nets of nationality, language, and religion, and spent most of his life in continental Europe. Fully indexed and with a comprehensive introduction newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, James Joyce is an essential reference work and is destined to be valued as a vital research resource.

  Calonne, David S./ 9781780230238/ Price:£ 11.99
Bukowski was born in Germany and raised in the United States, a schism that Calonne shows to be crucial in the writer’s development. From the influence of Germany’s literary and intellectual traditions to the writer’s traumatic childhood, this book explores the effect the writer’s hybrid identity had on the themes and content of his work. Exploring several unknown works of fiction and poetry created in the early years of his career, the many volumes of poetry published with Black Sparrow Press, major works of fiction like Post Office and Factotum, as well as feature films such as the Mickey Rourke-starring Barfly, Calonne catalogues and dissects the many versions of Bukowski created by the writer and his followers. A concise yet comprehensive new account, Charles Bukowski will interest the wide audience already familiar with this prolific, influential figure, as well as being an invaluable introduction to those new to Bukowski’s work and who wish to know more.

Native American Writing is edited by a leading expert in Native and multicultural writing, A. Robert Lee, Professor of American Literature at Nihon University, Tokyo. His eagerly awaited collection is a wide-ranging compendium which brings together hard-to-find original works by Native writers themselves, as well as critical and learned analyses of their creative productions. Volume I opens with a sequence of Native American overviews ('Momaday to Louis Owen'), followed by the most important critical theory dealing with ideology and custodianship. The volume also considers key notions such as the idea of the spoken inside the written word. Volume II looks first to accounts of Native autobiography, from the Pequot William Apess onwards, and also explores early modern writing, from the Paiute-raised Sarah Winnemucca and Creek poet and satirist, Alex Posey, to the Sioux Luther Standing Bear. Volume III focuses on modern Native fiction. The final volume in the collection addresses Native poetry and drama and First Nations authorship. Native American Writing includes a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, as well as detailed bibliographies, timelines, and lists of tribal groupings. It is an essential work of reference, destined to be especially valued by those with an interest in how indigenous writers have given literary imagination to their history in North America, Canada, and beyond.
VA01-131 Ernest Hemingway, 4-Vols/Set.
  Claridge, Henry/ 9780415491204/ Price:£ 930.00
Few twentieth-century American writers have been as influential as Ernest Hemingway (1899-1961). Whilst contemporaries such as F. Scott Fitzgerald and William Faulkner may be as widely taught and studied as Hemingway, neither had an influence on other writers-or indeed, the cognate arts-as great as that of Hemingway. For example, the 'hard-boiled' school of detective fiction extending from the novels of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett to those of James Ellroy and Robert Parker is more or less inconceivable without Hemingway's stylistic influence. Arguably, film noir is also Hemingwayesque in its laconic detachment. And quite independently of his creative writings, Hemingway's life continues to exert a profound fascination for both student and the general reader. Hemingway was the subject of extensive enquiry before his death and since then he has generated interpretative and critical commentary on a vast and bewildering scale, in part aided by the continuing publication of works left unpublished at his death (most notably The Garden of Eden in 1987). The dizzying quantity (and variable quality) of Hemingway criticism makes it difficult to discriminate the useful from the tendentious, superficial, and otiose. That is why this new Routledge title is so urgently needed. In four volumes, the collection meets the need for an authoritative reference work to allow researchers and students to make sense of a vast literature and the continuing explosion in research output. Users will now be able easily and rapidly to locate the best and most influential critical scholarship, work that is otherwise often inaccessible or scattered throughout a variety of specialist journals and books. With material gathered into one easy-to-use set, researchers and students can now spend more of their time with the key journal articles, book chapters, and other pieces, rather than on time-consuming (and sometimes fruitless) archival searches.

alf-hidden in the shade of a large oak tree Boon Winkle cautiously watched his class mate Cara casually dangling upside down from the height of the monkey bars. Boon felt easier far away in the solitude and obscurity of his secluded spot. Withdrawal into himself was what he had learned from living with the lurching, unpredictable behaviour of his drunken father and he preferred the certainty of solitude to the dangers of engagement. This life without a mother was all Boon knew and the sudden death of his grandfather had left him bereft of the one warm relationship that he could remember. But one day Boon's life changes when, on the way home from school, he stops to look at an odd collection of objects on display in the window of old man Garner's house. Strangely drawn towards a figurine of a snail he spots amid the objects he is compelled to enter the house. There Boon learns of the lasting friendship shared between Mr. Garner and his grandfather and is unexpectedly presented with a small wooden box filled with a collection of objects, a legacy left to him by his grandfather. Amidst the collection of objects is the snail figurine. That night, as he is falling asleep, Boon hears a voice and discovers that the snail figurine has come to life and is calling to him. The snail guides Boon through the extraordinary land of Momenssia where he finds himself on a fantastic and confusing journey into memory, wishes and fears. Chaotically transported in and out of thoughts, Boon soon discovers that a world of friendship and the formation of some very special moments await him - if he is able to open himself to the value of being.

Ezra Pound
  Marsh, Alec/ 9781861898623/ Price:£ 11.99
Ezra Pound’s co-poet Basil Bunting wrote of The Cantos: ‘There are the Alps, / fools! Sit down and wait for them to crumble!’ Ezra Pound tells the story of one of the most controversial poets of the twentieth century. Great poet, Confucian, peace activist, alleged fascist, indicted traitor, Ezra Pound’s life raises vital questions for anyone interested in politics, art and poetry. Probably no-one has promoted so many other great writers as Pound – James Joyce, T. S. Eliot and Ford Madox Ford among them – and without Pound’s generosity to colleagues, literary modernism arguably might not have happened. Yet by 1925 Pound was living in obscurity in Italy, having trouble publishing his work. There he became a Mussolini enthusiast and a believer in a malevolent Jewish/Communist conspiracy. As the global economic crisis worsened through the 1930s, Pound used The Cantos, his monumental magnum opus, to historicize the causes of the world crisis and to suggest a cure, agitating obsessively for a ‘new economics’ to prevent another World War. Indicted for treason by the US, after the war Pound was judged incompetent to stand trial and remanded to a Federal mental hospital where he remained until 1958, still furiously active on the American right.

"George, Robin has a fever," sparking a journey of love and loss, guilt and shame for them all as each is forced to confront the ghosts within themselves. But why is Robin burning?

Once again, Malone has created an ensemble of indelible characters and a thought-provoking haunting that will leave readers on the edge of their seats, gasping as secrets are revealed and leading to an ending that is nothing less than. . . incendiary.
Little Cicero.
  Schwartz, Duane/ 9780984634859/ Price:US$ 17.99
Take a police chief who has never before served in law enforcement, push a reluctant but more convenient than qualified doctor into the job of coroner, insert a mayor in his first few weeks holding any office, and show them a water filled mine pit with bodies dressed in costumes of the roaring twenties popping to its surface, and what you get is a fiasco of epic proportions. Add to that a ninety-six-year-old former Catholic nun who knows the story but will only dish it out in portions to a team of amateurs who are unsure she will live to tell, and an eccentric mining company employee who has everything to lose should the truth be told, and you have what should be the unsolvable crime. True enough for most, but this team of no-nothings will surprise. And their journey to the bottom of the truth is the journey found within the pages of Little Cicero. Little Cicero is the nickname given a small town on Minnesota's picturesque Mesabi Iron Range for its similarity to the Cicero, Illinois of Capone days, the streets of both having been honeycombed with tunnels for ease of travel from speakeasy to speakeasy during prohibition. The story surrounding the town explores the happenings of an earlier time through the ongoing investigation of an old woman who lived it, and the relationship that develops between her and the novice police chief as she relives those early memories reveals two things: the new chief is capable of getting to the truth, and his inexperience hinders him from taking action, even when that truth might involve murder.

Can Sammi Evans use her secret methods to determine the direction that these crazed minds will take and trap them before they strike again?

The Gingrich family did not become the Gingrich family until aboard ship and only a couple days away from anchoring off New York’s Ellis Island.

Telegram: A Wartime Novel About Peace.
  Hoffmann, L. D./ 9780984643950/ Price:US$ 18.99
It's 1944. Sauli Berglund watches from the edge of his property as ninety-six German POWs arrive at a work camp on Big Bear Lake. These young German soldiers, so full of life, so healthy, so very safe. And they would remain so. He watched them dodge no bullets. He watched them wipe no blood from their hands. He watched the tears they wouldn't shed for the friends who wouldn't die in their arms. Here, they were an ocean away from the battle. Here, they ate hot food every day. Here, they enjoyed their lives in the very place Sauli had raised his children. His mind sees a little boy, Ronnie, laughing, jumping off the dock into the cool water. "Ronald Berglund, Lieutenant, U.S.Navy," the telegram had read. "Missing in action." A father protects his children; that's what a father does. He wraps his powerful arms around them and pulls them against his chest where they're safe. And as long as they are safe, so is he. But when they're not? Three more telegrams will find the Berglund family before the war is over, but Sauli doesn't know that yet. Nor does he know that Anni, his fiery daughter, will fall in love with a German POW or that someone close to the Berglunds will fan the flames of intolerance that threaten to engulf the community and harm Sauli's family. What Sauli does know is that on the home front, in the Suomi Hills, there are no lengths to which he will not go to protect his family. Wars are not always fought on the battlefield; the combatants are not always soldiers. And telegrams are not always bad news.

With the delinquent teens and miscreant teachers on one side and only himself on the other, the former U.S. Marine, having been taught to never give up, faces the challenge of his life and his survival, as one teacher, suspended for vicious and inappropriate behavior, shows up with a loaded revolver……and the deranged man is gunning for Goodman.
Wapasha and the Rabbi.
  Selden, Howard S./ 9780984619597/ Price:US$ 17.95
This contemporary story, Wapasha and the Rabbi, mirrors the lives of a small group, while reflecting on the universal power of the past to influence human lives. This is poignantly revealed not only in the stories told by the two protagonists, but also in the stories told by some of the young people who share their lives with Rabbi Isak Cohen on an isolated farm in the back country of Texas. Wapasha-a full-blooded American Indian and the last Shaman of a dwindling Karankawan tribe-gained a medical school education and is a practicing country doctor. The encounter of the Rabbi and Wapasha stunningly uncovers their compatible religious heritage, albeit from diametrically polar backgrounds. The Rabbi is a product of a European Jewish youth, while Wapasha's Jewish faith was brought to the New World centuries earlier by a young Jew who had fled the Spanish Inquisition (as told in Selden's first book of the series, The Shaman and the Jew). The supportive relationship that evolves between the Rabbi (a Holocaust survivor) and Wapasha (a Vietnam War veteran) is central to the tale. Though the cause of their post-traumatic anguish is different, they recognize that their lingering and distressing emotional responses are the same.

There are several strange and mysterious happenings involving James and his new "girlfriend" during the first two-thirds of the story, but in chapter 27 James just has to get away from harmony and thus takes of in his '65 Cuda and heads for a nearby town and to a quiet park where he can be alone, or so he thinks. Here he meets Lilith, a member of the same "human-like" aliens as Harmony, whom he falls for as well. One thing leads to another and James and Lilith end up in a compromising situation vis-a-vis Harmony. From a nerd to a teenager much in demand; and James is just the man for the job.

GA01-197 Diary and Letters of Dr. Hu Shih, The.
  Peking University Library/ 9789814272247/ Price:US$ 300.00
Book Cover The Diary and Letters of Dr. Hu Shih (Peking University Library Collection) contains Hu Shih’s diary from his Chengzhong School days, an incomplete diary entry of Hsu Chi-Mo (Xu Zhimo) copied by Hu Shih, 116 Chinese letters, and 141 English letters. Among these, Hu Shih’s diary at Chengzhong School is his earliest one discovered so far, dating back to 1906, a time when he started to receive modern education and encounter modern thoughts. Considering that most of Hu Shih’s letters have already been published, the letters included in this book are even more valuable. Apart from the letters written by Hu Shih and his family members, this book also includes letters written by famous scholars and important figures at that time, such as Jiang Menglin and Fu Sinian. The English letters were mostly from the years when he was ambassador to the United States, which, from another angle, tell us something about his communication with western scholars and his strenuous effort to support China’s war against Japan. Benefits: *Contains rare letters and diary by Hu Shih, never before published. *Each document is presented in facsimile, with English captions. *Hu’s English letters during his US ambassadorship (1938–1942) offer important insights into the Second Sino-Japanese War and World War II. *The early diary gives a window on the world of Hu’s formative years. *Hu’s correspondences regarding Chang Shi Ji offer new material for the study of his significant contribution to modern Chinese poetry. *Contains many correspondences with important figures and scholars of the time.

It was Memorial Day weekend, 1963. James, an almost-fourteen-year-old, relatively shy, moderately nerdy, horny and soon-to-be ninth grader in a small central Florida town needed to start mowing yards to earn enough money to buy his first car when he turned sixteen.

There were the Kiches, the nosy next-door neighbors and their son, Kevin-the neighborhood bully. We can't forget James' best friend, Roger, whho had in his possession the "girlie" magazine, which got 'read' a lot that summer. If you remember being an adolescent with a vivid imagination, being anxious to grow up, getting your first car, and starting to date for real; but who also had to work hard, save your money and help around the house, then you'll enjoy this dream journey with James.

  Joule, Kip/ 9780984134236/ Price:US$ 19.99
Icily applauding every conflict between bone-deep isms, Death inexorably beckons from a front-row seat. Someone's killing jockeys and scaring hell out of the rest of them. "Retired" FBI operative "Jace" Maxwell pondered a possible nationwide connection between the deaths of several topnotch jockeys. Then, Enrique Mendoza's horrifically mutilated corpse is pulled from a reservoir in the Midwestern town of Mercury. Instinctively, the local police force's lone detective, Lt. Bob Huber, brims with vengeful territorialism. Even so, he quickly realizes that his department is ill-equiped to skillfully investigate the heinous nature of this seemingly lead-free crime and gladly accepts Maxwell's offer of help. Blending into the barn area at Mercury Downs as a stable groom and hot-walker, Maxwell discovers that Mendoza's murder is likely linked to the only winning ticket for a $1.72-million Twin-Trifecta payoff. Assuming that Mendoza's murderer also is responsible for other jockeys' deaths, Maxwell and Huber profile a psychological trap to lure the remorseless killer back into the Mercury area. The trouble is, their plan must involve a gallery of track-side women and men whose contributions are vital, but which could involve a fate as maliciously Mendoza's. Unbeknownst to anyone, Richard Pierce, known as The Talon, had decided that the "Mendoza job" would be his last. Yet, antagonized by internal perfection and uncompromising self-esteem, he wrestles with returning to Mercury to put his indelible stamp of fear on those who seem bent upon defying his previous message. Evisioning this to be but a brief detour before vanishing forever, The Talon cunningly presumes that he can be more open and reckless than ever before.

Three boys, each with circumstances that labeled them outcasts, join at a young age to stand against the injustice of an insufferable childhood. They hold strong to one another until a tragedy in their teen years tears them apart. One of them, Arthur Fetchenko is blamed for an atrocious crime he did not commit. Another, Tony Copeletti is forced far from his home to live with a gangster uncle.

Later life brings payback. After years in reform school, Arthur Fetchenko is handed proof of his innocence through evidence strong enough to devastate the political party who harbored the criminal and laid the blame on him in the first place. And along with that evidence, came options. Should he see to it that justice is finally served? Or should he use the information to benefit himself, a blackmail of sorts. He chooses the latter. And once again, the threesome is reunited and off on an adventure of which the final outcome can only be summed up by the words, "To the victors go the spoils". Their goal is to take over the political machine of the day from the inside. Success comes in the end, but it comes at a high cost. Vengeance may drive their story, but along the path noble intentions prevail, love abides, action and adventure abound, and an age old feud is fought to the death.
The Beloved: Book One.
  Yosef,M. H./ 9780984514205/ Price:US$ 19.95
He was by far, the most remarkable man that ever set foot on this earth. He preached a religion, founded a state, built a nation, laid down a moral code, initiated numerous social and political reforms, established a powerful and dynamic society to practice and represent his teachings and completely revolutionized the worlds of human thought and behavior for all times to come. Muhammad, peace be unto him, was born in what was then known as Felix Arabia, fourteen hundred years ago. He started his mission of preaching a religion of monotheism; a Way of Life based on the surrender, submission and obedience to the Commandments of Almighty God, in sincerity and peace. Muhammad's (peace be unto him) mission began at the age of forty and departed from this world at the age of sixty-three. During this short period of 23 years of his prophet-hood, he changed the complete Arabian Peninsula from paganism and idolatry to worship of One God, from tribal quarrels and wars to national solidarity and cohesion, from drunkenness and debauchery to sobriety and piety, from lawlessness and anarchy to disciplined living, from utter bankruptcy to the highest standards of moral excellence.

The Annunaki Enigma: Armageddon 2012.
  McCollough, E. G./ 9780984514274/ Price:US$ 22.95
Much has been written lately about a prophetic period in the future of our planet that is being referred to as "End Times". It is predicted to run collaterally with the formation of a one world government or what some may call a "One World Order", and climax with a great war in Israel over a mound known as 'har Megiddo' where the forces of good and evil clash in a battle that will end in the forces of evil being stopped and the leader, Satan, being thrown into an abyss for a thousand years. Current geopolitical events are seemingly moving in such a pattern. Are these Biblical prophecies actually about to take place? Have leaders in our past believed the Bible's predictions and actually prepared for such a global disaster. The Annunaki Enigma: Armageddon 2012 looks at current events and the attitudes of today's leaders and sees a parallel with the prognostications of the early writers of the Bible. If this comes true, how will our Creator respond? Will He join forces with those on Earth to defeat such an enemy? Has He already set up a scenario for the defense of His creations at some point earlier in our history?

This question becomes moot when his superior informs him that Majic-12 plans to hire her and he is assigned to familiarize her with the entire program.

The Oath: A Secret Operation Exposes a Conspiracy to Deliver America into the Hands of Her Archenemy, The Illuminati.
  McCollough, E. G./ 9780984514250/ Price:US$ 22.99
Rather than face charges of treason, Kennan Ahmad Padgett resigns his post as President and Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America. Within days, a dozen of the President's co-conspirators follow his lead. A nervous nation waits with other governments and powerbrokers around the globe for the twelfth person in the U.S. Presidential line of succession to take the oath of office. This is not only that person's story, Dr. Mason Edwards embodies a resolute spirit that resides within freedom-loving people everywhere. The crusade for human rights and self-determination that he and his Operation Annuit Coeptis colleagues champion is exactly what America's archenemy, The Order of the Illuminati, is sworn to wipe from the face of the earth. And, although mainstream media moguls know about the globalists' plans to topple America and her allies, the press shields the self-appointed gods of the New World Order from the lights of publicity.

Calum: Book One of GAIA.
  Hamilton, Matthew/ 9780984134212/ Price:US$ 18.99
"Who am I?" "Where am I?" "Why am I here?" With these questions Calum roused himself, touching his bloody head that had no memory of his whereabouts. "Is That Me?" He asked himself, seeing his reflection in the water of the clear, clean pond. Bemused, he found himself in front of a large door that lured him into entering. Unable to resist that impulse, Calum found himself drawn deeper into the mysterious cavern, where he received a most startling charge: "We have searched for you, Calum; searched for someone who has the ability. You must save GAIA from the evil that comes for her." Thus begins the saga of GAIA, as Calum, a young lad, is designated to be the savior of this unknown planet. The only positive is that he will have the aid of a series of dubious gods with varied mystical powers, in addition to a young race of GAIAns that may or may not be of help. Would that be enough? And who is the enemy that had gods of their own?
VA01-126 Roland Barthes, 4-Vols/Set.
  Badmington, Neil/ 9780415472579/ Price:£ 925.00
Thirty years ago the English-speaking world was discovering the work of some of the key poststructuralist theorists for the first time: Jacques Derrida’s Of Grammatology had just appeared in translation, as had Roland Barthes’ S/Z, Jacques Lacan’s Ecrits, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus, Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish, and Pierre Macherey’s A Theory of Literary Production. English editions of Julia Kristeva’s Desire in Language and Jean-Francois Lyotard’s The Postmodern Condition were just around the corner. The subsequent ‘theory wars’ that raged on campuses in the 1980s are now generally seen as a thing of the past: poststructuralism is now, largely, a familiar and widely taught part of the academic landscape in the English-speaking world. Of all the poststructuralists, Roland Barthes (1915–80) is probably the most widely read. Mythologies has sold hundreds of thousands of copies in paperback and has never been out of print since it first appeared in English in 1972. And ‘The Death of the Author’, his short essay dating from 1968, is probably the most widely anthologized theoretical text of all. Moreover, even though he died over a quarter of a century ago, Barthes remains especially ‘alive’ to English-speaking audiences in that his voluminous writings are still being translated into English. Reflecting the vibrancy and dynamism of Barthes Studies, this four-volume collection, a new title in Routledge’s Critical Evaluations in Cultural Theory series, brings together the best and most influential cutting-edge and canonical research on Roland Barthes. The gathered materials address the full range of Barthes’ extremely diverse output to provide the definitive evaluation of his work.

SA01-388 Quantum Woman: Celestial Man.
  Sojlevska, Kamelia/ 9780982305041/ Price:US$ 22.95
QUANTUM WOMAN--CELESTIAL MAN explores the issues relating to love, identity and belief, and Kamelia’s electrifying book gathers a range of characters around the concept of a journey with potentially wide-reaching implications. It takes into account a particular understanding of human nature in order to explore the relative complexities of a being, in unbelievable twists and turns. The story plot imagines consciousness as a kind of place, largely based on a view of certain scientific and sociological principles.

The fascinating history of acupuncture, and its introduction to American Medicine and Dentistry is detailed and exciting. Selden highlights this section by telling how he amazingly stops a patient's agonizing toothache with his first use of acupuncture. The inner world of root canal therapy, seen through an operating microscope, provides clarity and understanding. The very moving account of Selden's failure to successfully treat an important tooth for a patient, leads to her consoling him; a rare reversal of roles. Reaching back to Dental School days, we hear how the confrontation with cadavers, along with their noxious odors, challenges the determination of some to follow this career.

SA01-382 Truffles' Diaries: Memoirs and Mewsings of a Fat Tabby Cat.
  Collins, Sheila/ 9781906358556/ Price:£ 9.99
Truffles is no ordinary cat - in fact she would claim that she is very special indeed, and who would dare to argue with her? Her nineteen plus years of observing human behaviour, often mystifying and comical, have equipped her with all the wisdom and cunning necessary to use the human environment and its two-legged inhabitants to her best advantage and, as is the ambition of all cats, she has learnt how to make her existence as comfortable as possible. In this diary Truffles allows us to take a very privileged peek through her discerning eyes as she describes her thoughts and day-to-day activities (or lack of them!) Written in three weekly parts, the first from when she approaches her milestone sixteenth birthday followed up by catch-ups over the next two years, Truffles also recounts an assortment of amusing, true anecdotes from her past involving her feline and canine pals, but with the last laughs most often being on the hapless humans. What is quite clear is that twenty-first century cats are a far superior species in terms of getting what they want, when they want and with the minimum amount of effort, and the very humanised Truffles is no exception. She has her human carers well trained to carry out their expected feline-orientated duties to her exacting standards, is always one step ahead of them and knows exactly which buttons to press to get the desired effect ... which only goes to prove that it is a cat's life after all!

Charles Baudelaire.
  Lloyd, Rosemary/ 9781861893635/ Price:£ 11.99
Born in Paris, Charles Baudelaire (1821-1867) was a hugely influential poet, art critic and translator whose reputation has only increased in the twentieth century. Throughout his life Baudelaire was fascinated by both language, which he manipulated with consummate and innovative skill, and by the visual, commenting forcefully on the art of his time. This book brings together Baudelaire's life and his creative and critical writing, showing how closely interlinked they were, and how much his experience of daily life and the world around him was distilled and transformed in his work. Living through the high point and the decline of Romanticism, as well as the beginnings of realism and symbolism, Baudelaire was a witness to turbulent political events, such as the February 1848 revolution, that transformed the city of Paris both socially and physically. These events offer a crucial background to Baudelaire's life and work, as do the many friends and acquaintances who have left written traces of their relationship with him. The book also relates Baudelaire's personal battles with syphilis, and the morality of the time, and his role as a translator – his translations of Edgar Allan Poe were highly popular and introduced Poe's work to a French audience.
Jean Cocteau.
  Williams, James S./ 9781861893543/ Price:£ 11.99
From the magical Beauty and the Beast to the surreal Orpheus films, Jean Cocteau is renowned as a leading figure in European cinema as well as a creative force collaborating with artists as diverse as Picasso, Diaghilev and Edith Piaf. Yet Cocteau’s work and life have rarely been examined together. Evaluating Cocteau’s career and his fascinating personal life on equal terms, James S. Williams offers here a groundbreaking analysis that sets them both within highly revealing historical and artistic contexts. James S. Williams’s biographical investigation of this poet, dramatist, novelist, designer, and filmmaker centres around Cocteau’s constant self-questioning and how it permeated his work. From Cocteau’s work in fashion and photography to his formal experimentation, to his extensive collaborations with male friends and lovers, the book charts the complex and unpredictable evolution of his work and aesthetic. Williams argues that Cocteau’s body of work is best viewed as an ethical, erotic project of aesthetics that carries important ramifications for our contemporary understanding of being and subjectivity.

"Figuring It Out With Grace" is a love story that will grip your heart. At a time where everyone is only interested in the 'here and now' and 'what's in it for me?" comes a tale of stirring selfless romance full of passion and excitement, of heartbreak and pain; of love found, then lost, and then found anew...only to be lost again. A story of innocent awakening, of learning, and then, finally, the discovery of the One Great True Love. But, is it too late? Did Grace come to her realization in time to win the love of her life, or is she doomed to watch as he weds another? And if he does wed another, will Grace be content to become 'The Other Woman', or will she--can she--just walk away?"

VA01-115 Modern Drama, 4-Vols/Set.
  Puchner, Martin/ 9780415386609/ Price:£ 935.00
What is generally referred to as modern drama was an international development or movement centred in Europe and North America, a movement directed against many of the conventions and institutions of nineteenth-century drama and theatre. Between 1880 and 1960, a number of foundational figures broke with inherited dramatic conventions, instituted new forms of drama, and created different venues for performance. George Bernard Shaw and William Archer in England, Henrik Ibsen in Norway, August Strindberg in Sweden, Maurice Maeterlinck and Alfred Jarry in France, Gerhard Hauptmann in Germany, Luigi Pirandello in Italy, Federico Garcia Lorca in Spain, Eugene O’Neill and Gertrude Stein in the United States, and Anton Chekhov in Russia share, despite their considerable differences, a project of rupturing with the old and a belief in the new. Even though each national drama tradition can boast such a foundational figure, modern drama was at the same time an international movement. New plays quickly circulated through translation and new production techniques through touring companies and extended visits, establishing an international standard for modernism in drama. The four volumes that make up this new Routledge Major Work span the historical emergence and the continuing impact of modern drama on critical thought. By focusing on the origins of modern drama as well as on the narrative of its development, the collection is uniquely positioned to relate this historical period to current critical traditions. In terms of organization, the Major Work takes stock of the various critical traditions that have developed since the 1960s and that have fundamentally transformed our understanding of modernist drama and theatre even as these traditions have continued to draw on the original impulses of modern dramatists. It is an essential reference work destined to be valued as a vital research resource by all scholars and students of the subject.
VA01-113 Dryden-Tonson Miscellanies, 1684-1709, The., 6-Vols/Set.
  Hopkins, David/ 9780415375771/ Price:£ 1100.00
Today, the miscellanies provide crucial insight into the development of English poetry at the beginning of the Long Eighteenth Century. Early volumes print work by such poets as Sir Charles Sedley, Rochester, Aphra Behn, and Thomas Rymer. The middle volumes see the emergence of a new generation of younger writers, many of them proteges of Dryden, including Joseph Addison, William Congreve, and Matthew Prior. The final volumes include some of the earliest work of Alexander Pope, Nicholas Rowe, and Jonathan Swift. The miscellanies represent a wide spectrum of political affiliations, and include work by, and addressed to, women. The Tonson miscellanies thus provide a unique decade-by-decade record of the complex transition between the ‘Restoration’ and ‘Augustan’ (or more neutrally seventeenth to eighteenth-century) phases of English literary culture.

Love and Samsara
  Rodrigues, Eusebio, L./ 9780979448812/ Price:US$ 48.00
Love and Samsara is a novel set in 16th-century India, blending history, adventure, love, and spirituality on the background of the arrival of the Portuguese, which caused a clash of civilizations. Love and Samsara is an epic diorama of the world in the early 16th century, stretching from Europe to Asia, taking in Brazil, Africa, the Middle East, India, and then the lands below the wind, the monsoon countries of South East Asia. The hero, a renowned Arab ship pilot, hunted down for eloping with a Iain girl, escapes from their assassins by guiding Vasco da Gama and the Portuguese ships to Calicut, the major emporium of the spice trade. Only later does he realize the tremendous significance of his innocent betrayal, for it leads to the Portuguese imperial domination of the oceansea. This marks a turning point in history, a time when the modern world becomes inexorably linked with power-gunpowder for cannon, printing for the spread of knowledge, and astronomy for a new understanding of the heavens. A time also of significant encounter among the world's major religions, Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism, with their complex languages, philosophies and theologies. Here is a samsara crowded with adventure, history, tragic love, philosophical speculation, religious confrontation, suspense and mystery, that reaches its climax in 1510 with the Portuguese conquest of Goa.

Walter Benjamin.
  Leslie, Esther/ 9781861893437/ Price:£ 11.99
Walter Benjamin, critic, essayist, translator, philosopher – one of the twentieth century’s most influential intellectuals – continues to intrigue today. His work stimulates a profusion of responses in the form of new novels, operas, films and artworks, as well as a never-abating production of academic texts. In this new biography, the first to be written in over a decade, author Esther Leslie uses the recently published entirety of Benjamin’s correspondence, drawing on his numerous diaries and autobiographical works, in order to provide a careful account of his circumstances and thoughts. Benjamin had many interests: he cherished childhood and its trappings; had a passion for the displacement and novelty of travel; toys; cities; trick-books; and ships; all are given due attention as the author weaves Benjamin’s wayward apperceptions into the narrative of a life lived. She follows Benjamin as he travels from Berlin to Capri, Ibiza, Riga, Moscow, Paris, and finally the Spanish border where he died in 1940. The author acknowledges Benjamin’s thesis that personal histories can be traced only in the context of social milieus, economic forces, technological shifts, and historical events, and seamlessly interweaves biographical details with an accessible yet concentrated account of Benjamin’s intellectual development, drawing a colourful portrait of a capacious intellect trapped in increasingly hostile circumstances.
Georges Bataille.
  Kendall, Stuart/ 9781861893277/ Price:£ 11.99
Georges Bataille was arguably the greatest influence on the post-structuralist revolution in twentieth-century thought and literature, yet few truly understand his large body of work or its impact. Stuart Kendall now translates the work and life of the renowned French writer into a concise yet informative biography that reveals fascinating facets of this intellectual giant. Until his death in 1962, Bataille was an instrumental force in philosophical debate, acting as a foil for both Surrealism and Existentialism and advocating radical views that spanned the entire spectrum of political thought. Stuart Kendall chronicles these aspects of his intellectual development, as well as tracing his pivotal role in the creation of journals such as Documents and Acephale, and how his writings in aesthetics and art history were the pioneering cornerstones of visual culture studies. Kendall positions Bataille at the heart of a prodigious community of thinkers, including Andre Breton, Michel Leiris, Jean-Paul Sartre, Alexandre Kojeve, Jacques Lacan and Maurice Blanchot, among many others.
VA37-17 Women and Romanticism, 5-Vols/Set.
  Eberle, Roxanne/ 9780415342186/ Price:£ 1100.00
Demonstrating the breadth and scope of women's writing in the Romantic period, this collection covers a variety of topics ranging across polemical treatises, private correspondence, philosophical and historical disquisitions, and poetry and prose fiction. Helping to contextualise the areas discussed, the collection includes a general introduction by the editor, which traces the history of criticism in the field, and thus current definitions of "Women and Romanticism", before going on to discuss the contents of each volume.
VA05-195 Structuralism, 4-Vols/Set.
  Culler, Jonathan/ 9780415340892/ Price:£ 850.00
Structuralism is a broad intellectual movement in the humanities and social sciences that came to prominence in the 1960s. Representing the beginning of modern interdisciplinary work in what has come to be called "theory", it seeks not to explain the meaning of an object or event but to understand what made it possible. Taking as their methodological model the successes of the structural linguistics inaugurated by Ferdinand de Saussure, a group of thinkers in such fields as anthropology, literary and cultural studies, sociology and philosophy developed ambitious programs for the interdisciplinary study of the systems by which human beings make the world intelligible. Organized thematically, this four-volume collection explores the key areas of structuralism - and with a new introduction by the editor to guide the reader through the work, this is an essential collection of articles that provides a valuable research resource.
VA05-164 Narrative Methods, 4-Vols/Set.
  Atkinson, Paul/ 9781412901505/ Price:£ 675.00
In recent years, there has been a convergence of interest on narratives and lives from many qualitative and interpretative strands in the social sciences that encompass sociology and anthropology, health and nursing studies, educational research, cultural and communication analysis, cultural geography and the emergent fields of discourse and narrative analyses. In some contexts this is interpreted somewhat narrowly but these comprehensive volumes will adopt a more inclusive approach to reflect the current diversity of perspectives across the different social sciences. Here the broad term 'narrative' includes personal narratives, life histories, performances, testimonials and memories. This timely compilation: (a) demonstrate the deeply rooted nature of this approach across the social sciences; (b) reveal the contested nature of the narrative turn; (c) emphasise the methodological strengths and weakness associated with the collection and analysis of narrative, life story and performance; (d) break down the barriers between the disciplines in their uses of such material.

  / 9780415362948/ Price:£ 935.00
VA01-98 Autobiography, 4-Vols/Set.
  Broughton, Trev Lynn/ 9780415348713/ Price:£ 985.00
The analysis of life-writing as a distinct and specialized project emerged only in the second half of the twentieth century. That it has achieved both academic respectability and critical cachet over the last twenty-five years is the result of a number of trends. Politically 'progressive' tendencies, from the civil rights, workers' educational and second-wave women's movements, to the establishment of sociology, social history and interdisciplinary women's and 'race' studies, have appealed to 'experience', via the production and dissemination of personal testimony, life-narratives, autobiographical manifestos, as the basis for consciousness-raising and as a challenge to dominant accounts of the social world. At the same time, paradoxically, neo-conservative celebrations of individual choice, personal entitlement, consumer power, have reinstated the 'unique' self and its representation at the heart of many late-capitalist cultures. This collection covers all of these schools of thought and brings together both 'mainstream' and 'dissident' theorists, authors and texts. With a new introduction by the editor, an index and a chronological table of contents, this collection will be a unique and unrivalled research resource for both student and scholar.
VA01-97 Children's Literature: Critical Concepts, 4-Vols/Set.
  Hunt, Peter/ 9780415372282/ Price:£ 850.00
The study of children’s literature is currently centred on literary studies, educational studies, and a third more diverse group of many other related disciplines, including history, bibliography, sociology and psychology. All of these then overlap with cultural studies and contribute to the rapidly growing meta-discipline of childhood studies. Fascinating and insightful, this four-volume collection gathers together fundamental and essential essays from across the spectrum of disciplines, and is organized so that each volume focuses on one general interest group or area. With entries from specialist and professional journals across the world, this is a unique resource to complement the burgeoning numbers of specialist and reference books in the field.
VA01-95 Paradigms and Fairy Tales, 2-Vols/Set.
  Ford, Julienne/ 9780415401982/ Price:£ 260.00
Paradigms and Fairy Tales is an introduction to the epistemology and practice of social science which will be welcomed by everyone who is curious about or disenchanted with the current conventions of academic social science. For the non-sociologist it provides an exposition and critique of the ideology and practice of social science, and an examination of the professional social scientist as a manipulator of ideas and appearances; his claims to expertise are exposed, and some rules for judging dialogues about social science 'evidence ' are suggested. The work is also a valuable, basic methodolodgy text or, more precisely, an anti-text. It provides the practising researcher with a concise manual of elementary research procedures and techniques, accompanied by a series of practical hints. On yet another level this work may be read as an allegorical fairy tale. It is the story of the rise and fall of a curious lapine civilization and of the fortunes of the devotees of a strange cult of mountaineering herous, who, even now, are regrouping for a new assault on the summit.

VA01-59 Women's Travel Writing 1750-1850, 8-Vols/Set.
  Franklin, Caroline/ 9780415320344/ Price:£ 1290.00
Romantic Period saw a massive advance in British colonial expansion, which was accompanied by a corresponding expansion in travel writings. These published letters, journals and books provided British readers with detailed accounts of new and exotic locations and thus engaged the reading public with expansionist enterprises. Recent research inspired by colonial and exploration discourse has highlighted the significance of travel writing as one of the ideological apparatuses of empire. Emerging from the growth of feminist history and theory and the development of Women's Studies, specific interest in women's travel writing has also expanded. This collection covers the period of the French Revolution and concludes as Victoria ascends the throne. The journeys span France, Italy and central Europe, India, Africa and America.

VA01-101 Twentieth Century American Drama, 4-Vols/Set.
  / 9780415342704/ Price:£ 985.00
There was a vast array of activity in American theatre during the twentieth century, when work produced in the United States reached the height of its significance and influence within the world repertoire. Presenting an overview of criticism on the full range of twentieth-century American drama as well as a substantial anthology that reflects the changing critical perspectives that have been trained on the area, this extensive collection performs two much-needed functions. Covering a variety of themes from the battles over realism and expressionism at the beginning of the century, to the emergence of Freudian and myth criticism, the response to post-structural theory in the seventies and eighties, and the intense focus on issues of gender, sexual identity and ethnicity toward the end of the century, this is a fascinating and unique collection for both student and scholar alike.
VA01-100 Myth, 4-Vols/Set.
  / 9780415354943/ Price:£ 1020.00
Myth is truly boundlessly interdisciplinary. There is no field of myth studies itself. Rather, many disciplines have contributed theories of myth. In addition to theories from anthropology and sociology, theories of myth have come mainly from psychology, folklore, philosophy, religious studies, and-not least-literature. All are represented in this new four-volume Major Work from Routledge, which draws together scholarship on myth that ranges from the late nineteenth century down to the present. In addition to surveys of approaches to myth, the topics covered are: myth and history, myth and nationalism, myth and ideology, myth and psychology, myth and ritual, myth and literature, myth and anthropology/strcturalism, myth and philosophy, myth and religion. and myth and science/science in myth. With an introduction by the editor, an index and a chronological table of articles, Myth will be welcomed by researchers as an indispensable reference resource.

Transatlantic Translations: Dialogues in Latin American Literature.
  Ortega, Julio/ 9781861892874/ Price:US$ 25.00
Ortega examines the ways in which the unknown has always been placed according to what is already known, the new according to the old. Tracing Latin American representations from the early modern to contemporary periods, in Shakespeare, Cervantes, Juan Rulfo, Ricardo Palma, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Juan Maria Gutierrez and many others, Ortega uncovers the rich fabric of literature that has emerged from that culture, arguing that the learning of language, far from being a means for the colonial to indoctrinate and civilize the natives, gave the natives the means to describe and communicate with the natural world around them, and eventually to re-tell their own history. Transatlantic Translations refigures Latin American narratives outside of the standard post-colonial framework of victimization and resistance. This book bridges the divide between abundance and scarcity, enabling the Old World and the New to meet and speak together in a shared language.
Jorge Luis Borges.
  Wilson,/ 9781861892867 / Price:£ 11.99
These words, inseparably marrying life and work, encapsulate how Jorge Luis Borges interwove the two throughout his legendary literary career. But the Borges of popular imagination is the celebrated, blind librarian and man of letters; few biographers have explored his tumultuous early life in the streets and cafes of Buenos Aires, a young man searching for his path in the world. In Jorge Luis Borges, Jason Wilson uncovers the young poet who wrote, loved, and lost with adventurous passion, and considers the later work, life and travels of the writer who claimed to have never created a character: 'It's always me, subtly disguised.' Born in Buenos Aires in 1899, Jorge Luis Borges was a voracious reader from childhood, perhaps in part because he knew he lived under a sentence of adult-onset blindness inherited from his father. Wilson chronicles Borges's life as he raced against time and his fated blindness, charting the literary friendships, love affairs and polemical writings that formed the foundation of his youth. Illuminating the connections running between the biography and fictions of Borges, Wilson traces the outline of this self-effacing literary figure. Though in his later writings Borges would subjugate emotion to the wild play of ideas, Jorge Luis Borges reminds us that he was always a poet whose life was recreated subtly in his work – but never in confessional ways – and restores his Argentine roots. It will be an invaluable resource for all those who treasure this modern master.

  Goodman, Russell B./ 9780415288453/ Price:£ 1005.00

VA03-108 Romanticism, 4-Vols/Set.
  O'Neill, Michael/ 9780415247221/ Price:£ 1100.00
Romanticism is, and always has been, one of the most hotly contested terms in literary and cultural history. Some of the writers who are now labelled Romantic refused to be defined by the word: 'it would be such bad taste', said Byron in 1820. Rene Wellek, on the other hand, argued that literatures called Romantic indicated common conceptions. This collection gathers key critical discussions which explore the complex and many-sided nature of the 'Romantic'. The set includes a new introduction by the editors, and individual volume introductions, as well as a chronological table and an index.
VA03-103-38 Yuan Mei: Eighteenth Century Chinese Poet.
  Waley, Arthur/ 9780415361828/ Price:£ 225.00
Arthur Waley here presents an engrossing account of the works and life of Yuan Mei (1716-1797), the best-known poet of his time. Gaiety is the keynote of his works and the poet was a friend of the Manchu official with whom Commodore Anson had dramatic dealings at Canton in 1743. Yuan Mei gives an account (not previously translated) of Anson's interview with the Manchu authorities. The book contains many translations of Yuan Mei's verse and prose.
VA03-103-31 Chinese Poems.
  Waley, Arthur/ 9780415361750/ Price:£ 225.00
Here in one volume is a collection of Arthur Waley's translations of Chinese poetry. The book includes some poems from The Book of Songs and 170 Chinese Poems, More Translations and The Temple. Some old translations have been revised and new notes and explanatory material added.
VA03-103-30 Book of Songs.
  Waley, Arthur/ 9780415361743/ Price:£ 225.00
The Book of Songs is a collection of ancient Chinese songs, dating from 800 to 600 B.C. Until this was published in 1937 it had not been translated into English since the middle of nineteenth century, when sinology was still in its infancy. For the first time the original meaning of 290 out of the 305 songs is given, use being made of the advances in the study of old Chinese. The result is not merely a clear picture of early Chinese life, but also the restoration to its proper place in world literature of one of the finest collection of traditional songs.

VA01-58 Later English Broadside Ballads, 2-Vols/Set.
  Holloway, John/ 9780415372220/ Price:£ 340.00
Broadside or 'street' ballads not only give the flavour of english life and history more vividly than much historical evidence of more conventional kinds, but also their sheer poetic quality often makes them substantial poems, light or serious, in their own right. They are reprinted from contemporary or near contemporary broadsides in the Madden Collection at the University Library, Cambridge, and the head and tail blocks, so distinctive a feature of the original texts, are reproduced for this edition. The introduction is designed to enable the reader to read the texts in perspective and with pleasure, and the book includes a select bibiography and an index of ballad titles.

VA01-13 Robin Hood Classic Fiction Library, 8-Vols/Set.
  Knight, Stephen/ 9780415220026/ Price:£ 1085.00
The Robin Hood tradition is best known in popular forms such as ballad, lyric, play, children's story and, in our own era, television and film. But there have also been a significant number of novelists who have devoted themselves to retelling and reshaping the story. In particular the nineteenth century provided some classical fictional reformulations of the outlaw saga where the hero and his activities were re-interpreted in ways relating to the concerns and values of the period. Robin appears as a Gothic adventurer, a romantic hero, a lost heir, a precursor of Baden-Powell, and even as a loyal servant of parliamentary democracy in its alleged origin. The substantial novels that embody these conceptions of the outlaw are little known, and quite unavailable. This collection reprints these nineteenth century texts and in doing so re-establishes for scholars and readers a largely lost element of the remarkably rich and still popular myth.

SA01-323 Ideas, Images, and Methods of Portrayal: Insights into Classical Arabic Literature and Islam.
  Gunther, S./ 9789004143258/ Price:EUR 152.00
This volume deals with the genesis of selected classical Arabic texts as the products of different milieus, and the implications which these texts had for Islamic societies in medieval times. It explores the concepts and images which Muslim scholars from the 8th to the 14th century presented in their writings and, in particular, ponders the ways in which these authors used specific methods of portrayal - either overtly or more subtly - to advance their ideas. The fresh theoretical and methodological approaches applied in this book facilitate the understanding of how medieval Muslim writers expressed their views and, more importantly, why they expressed them in the way they did. This helps disclose, for example, how the images of historically or religiously significant figures in Arabic-Islamic culture have been developed and shaped in the process of their "literarization."
SA01-318 Teaching Literacy in Sixth Grade.

SA01-311 The Idea of Notth.
  Davidson, Peter/ 9781861892300/ Price:£ 24.95
The book also traces a northward journey, describing northern rural England, industrial sites, and the long emptiness of the borders, Scotland and the Highlands. He looks at the region far north of Scotland, then moves to the Northern Netherlands and Scandinavia to explore their identifiable northernness. The last visited place is Iceland, identified by W. H. Auden and Louis McNeice in 1936 as 'furthest, most remote, most distant, most northerly'
SA01-311 Chris Marker: Memories of the Future.
  Lupton, Catherine/ 9781861892232/ Price:£ 24.00
Marker’s oeuvre moves in circles, with each project recycling and referring back to earlier works and to a host of other adopted texts, and proceeds by way of oblique association and lateral digression. This circular movement is ideally suited to capturing and mapping Marker’s abiding and consummate obsession: the forms and operations of human memory. Chris Marker: Memories of the Future itself aims to capture something of this movement, in forming a comprehensive analysis and overview of this modern master’s prolific and multi-faceted career.

  Katz, Claire Elise/ 9780415310499/ Price:£ 955.00
Emmanuel Levinas (1905-1995) was one of the foremost thinkers of the twentieth century. His work has influenced a wide range of intellectuals, from French thinkers such as Maurice Blanchot, Jacques Derrida, Luce Irigaray and Jean-Luc Marion, to American philosophers Stanley Cavell and Hillary Putnam. This set will be a useful resource for scholars working in the fields of literary theory, philosophy, Jewish studies, religion, political science and rhetoric.
VA05-102 Popular Print Media 1820-1900, 3-Vols/Set.

Each section includes a new introduction by the editors.

VA01-56 Encyclopedia of the Harlem Renaissance, 2-Vols/Set.
  Wintz, Cary/ 9781579583897/ Price:£ 355.00
The encyclopedia is a two-volume, illustrated reference work of approximately 2,000 pages with about 600 entries that is the first comprehensive compilation of information about all aspects of this dynamic period. Thus, it includes essays on the principal participants in the Harlem Renaissance -- as well as on others who were involved more tangentially as critics, promoters and interpreters -- and their works; on those who defined the political, intellectual and cultural milieu in which the Renaissance existed; on important events and places; and on the major social, political and intellectual developments that created the context of the Harlem Renaissance. Entries of from 500 to 5,000 words fall into five main categories, which, for ease of review, have been subdivided into several areas (the encyclopedia itself is organized in an A-Z format). Each entry is followed by a brief list of selected further readings. In the case of person entries, a listing of the individual's publications (in the case of visual artists and musicians, listings of exhibits, artworks or compositions) and a capsule biographical sketch is also included.
VA01-47 Ossian and Ossianism, 4-Vols/Set.
  Moore, Dafydd/ 9780415288934/ Price:£ 1005.00
James Macpherson's The Poems of Ossian (1760-1763) were one of the publishing sensations of the eighteenth century. Macpherson's supposed discovery of the epic poet Ossian in the Scottish Highlands provoked fascination and controversy in equal measure. His vision of a romantic Celtic past of melancholy heroes and mournful bards made an immediate impact on all aspects of eighteenth-century culture across Europe and influenced at least two generations of poets, novelists, painters and composers. Many of the most important documents of the Ossian phenomenon have hitherto only been accessible in a handful of British research libraries. This collection brings these documents for the first time to a wider audience.
VA01-46 Narrative Theory: Critical Concepts in Literary and Cultural Studies, 4-Vols/Set.
  Bal, Mieke/ 9780415316576/ Price:£ 980.00
This set of volumes sketches the history, breadth, and applicability of narrative theory, thus demonstrating its value as an analytical instrument. The collection includes articles from the leading names of narrative theory, such as Roland Barthes, Mikhail Bakhtin, Tzvetan Todorov and Jean-Francoise Lyotard, as well as lesser-known, though equally important, contributions. Volume 1: Major Issues in Narrative Theory Volume II: Special Topics Volume III: Political Narratology Volume IV: Interdisciplinarity
VA01-45 Gothic: Critical Concepts in Literary and Cultural Studies, 4-Vols/Set.
  Botting, Fred/ 9780415251129/ Price:£ 1110.00
In the last two decades criticism of Gothic fiction has been transformed from a scholarly backwater, interesting itself in literary curiosities, to a wave of wide-ranging critical investigations collectively convinced of the significance, scope and centrality of the genre. Embracing recent developments in critical theory and practice, work on Gothic has been able to engage systematically and penetratingly with issues of gender, history, race and politics, and so significantly extend the parameters of the field. This collection brings together key works which convey the breadth of what is understood to be Gothic, and the ways in which it has produced, reinforced and undermined received ideas about literature and culture. In addition to its interests in the late eighteenth-century origins of the form, this collection aims to anthologise what it takes to be path-breaking essays on most aspects of Gothic production, including some of its nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first century manifestations across a broad range of cultural media.
VA01-42 Shakespeare Imitations, Parodies and Forgeries, 3-Vols/Set.
  Kahan, Jeffrey/ 9780415288576/ Price:£ 630.00
Shakespeare Imitations is a collection of all-but-forgotten Shakespearean plays, composed between 1710 and 1820. These imitations, parodies and forgeries reveal the biases of eighteenth-century Shakespeare in London theatre. But these plays are far from derivative. Indeed, rather than simply rewriting Shakespeare situations, these playwrights often placed Shakespearean characters in Neoclassical frameworks. Although many of these plays are unfamiliar to many now, within their own day these works enjoyed much critical and commercial success. For example, Nicholas Rowe's The Tragedy of Jane Shore (1714) was the most popular new play of the eighteenth century, and the sixth most performed tragedy, following Hamlet, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, Othello and King Lear. Even William Shirley's forgotten play, Edward the Black Prince (1750), 'was well received with great applause' and had a stage history spanning three decades. This collection includes the performance text to the 1796 Ireland play, Vortigern. The plays are all reset and, where possible, modernised from original manuscripts, with listed variants, and parallel passages traced to Shakespearean canonical texts. The set includes a new introduction by the editor, and raises important questions about the nature of artistic property and authenticity, a key area of Shakespearean research today.
VA01-41 Cambridge Dictionary of English Place-Names, The.
  Watts, Victor/ 9780521362092/ Price:£ 330.00
This alphabetical dictionary is a totally new compilation, based on the archives of the English Place-Name Society and reflecting the most recent scholarship in the subject, of all the names of cities, towns, villages, hamlets, rivers, streams, hills and other geographical locations included in the Ordnance Survey Road Atlas of Great Britain (1983) plus many more. It provides a reflection of contemporary England, not just its historical past. Every place-name entry has a unique National Grid reference number, a list of historical spellings, the age and meaning of the name and its etymology (pre-Indo-European, Indo-European, Celtic, Primitive Welsh, Anglo-Saxon, Old Norse, Old French, Middle English, Modern English). Where appropriate, a commentary is provided on comparable names, on the problems, history and significance of the name for settlement, economic and social history, the development of the language and on its variant pronunciations and spellings.

SA01-310 A History of Reading.
  Fischer, Steven R./ 9781861892096/ Price:£ 14.95
Fischer discusses society’s dedication to public literacy in the sweeping educational reforms of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and notes the appearance of free libraries, gender differences in reading matter, public advertising and the ‘forbidden’ lists of Church, State and the unemancipated. Finally, he assesses the future, in which it is likely that read communication will soon exceed oral communication through the use of the personal computer and the internet, and looks at ‘visual language’ and modern theories of how reading is processed in the human brain. Asking how the New Reader can reshape reading’s future, he suggests a radical new definition of what reading could be.

VA01-31 Alexander Pope and His Critics, 3-Vols/Set.
  Rounce, Adam/ 9780415309097/ Price:£ 770.00
Warton's Essay on the Genius and Writings of Pope was one of the most influential critical works of the eighteenth century. Warton's sustained commentary on the most significant English poet of the century was read as both a promotion of Pope's literary genius, and an attack on it, and as such attracted strong opinion. At the same time its comparative critical method, drawing upon the important cultural and political events of the eighteenth century, provided a highly influential critical and creative model. This three-volume set reprints Joseph Warton's An Essay on the Genius and Writings of Pope (in two volumes), along with other responses to Pope (and Warton). The collection brings together significant documents both in the formation of eighteenth-century opinion of Pope and in the development of eighteenth century criticism. A new introduction by the editor, and an appendix discussing the revisions between editions of Warton's Essay will give the set extra value to the researcher.

SA03 Unsettling Memories: Narratives of the 'Emergency' in Delhi.
  Tarlo, Emma/ 9781850654483/ Price:£ 45.00
This book belongs to the growing body of literature which seeks to work against the collective silence that often clings to violent and disturbing events. Focusing on India,s Emergency of 1975-7 when Indian democracy was temporarily suspended in favour of an authoritarian regime, it explores the various avenues through which this event is remembered and forgotten. Based on a combination of anthropological fieldwork and archival analysis, Unsettling Memories traces the experiences and perceptions of men and women who found themselves the key targets of the infamous slum clearance and sterilisation campaigns which converged to disrupt life in the nation,s capital, Delhi. Interweaving personal and official memories with a re-reading of resistance literature, Emergency propaganda and government files, the author offers a new and complex narrative of the Emergency. This book will be of interest to anthropologists, historians and political scientists as well as anyone concerned with everyday violence, the ethnography of events and life among India,s urban poor.

This timely and comprehensive collection covers the contribution and significance of the famed Russian social and cultural theorist, Mikhail M.

VA03-31 Romanticism and Science: Subcultures and Subversions, 5-Vols/Set.
  Fulford, Tim/ 9780415219525/ Price:£ 1115.00
Mary Shelley's Frankenstein is perhaps the best-known and most widely studied literary representation of science. Yet it is by no means the only text of its time to fictionalize the latest experiments and discoveries of natural philosophers. Science was burgeoning in the years 1760-1840, revolutionising how people saw the world around them, and this extended to the literary world. This five volume set is divided into sections by scientific discipline, each illuminating a context of current interest to literary scholars. An extensive introduction is included in the first volume giving a brief history of the development of various scientific fields - including Geology, Palaeontology, Chemistry and Physics - resumes of the central texts/discoveries and their significance, and an account of their impact on literature - and sometimes, literature's impact on science. A bibliography of major scientific works and suggestions for critical reading is also provided and the set is completed with a detailed index.

VA01-21 G. Wilson Knight: Collected Works, 12-Vols/Set.
  Knight, G. Wilson/ 9780415278966/ Price:£ 1470.00
'Professor Wilson Knight stands in a class by himself among contemporary English critics. His work might best be described as the analysis and interpretation of genius, an arduous and heroic task for which he is peculiarly fitted by the possession not only of a penetrating intelligence but of imaginative powers of a very high order.' - Professor V. de S. Pinto 'I confess that reading his essays seems to me to have enlarged my understanding of the Shakespearean pattern, which, after all, is quite the main thing.' - T. S. Eliot Writer and critic, George Wilson Knight wrote numerous texts and essays on English literature as well as plays, poems and studies of literary figures. This set reissues many of these important works. Volume 1: The Imperial Theme Volume 2: The Shakespearian Tempest Volume 3: The Crown of Life Volume 4: The Mutual Flame Volume 5: The Sovereign Flower Volume 6: Shakespearian Production Volume 7: Shakespeare and Religion Volume 8: Shakespeare's Dramatic Challenge On English Poetry: Volume 9: The Starlit Dome Volume 10: Lord Byron: Christian Virtues Volume 11: Byron and Shakespeare Volume 12: Poets of Action
VA01-20 Modernism: Critical Concepts in Literary and Cultural Studies, 5-Vols/Set.
  Middleton, Tim/ 9780415242370/ Price:£ 1190.00
As befits so notoriously ambiguous a term, 'modernism' may be studied in a wide variety of contexts. The term embraces subjects ranging from the new architectural practices of Le Corbusier and Walter Gropius, the innovative art of painters as diverse as Monet and Kandinsky, the drama of Strindberg and Jarry, the poetry of Ezra Pound and Wallace Stevens, the fiction of Joseph Conrad, William Faulkner and Gertrude Stein. This collection of resources provides readers with access to major debates relating to modernism as a set of aesthetic practices and as a product of (late) modernity. This collection offers an overview of the history of modernism as a critical concept in Anglo-American literary criticism from the 1890s to the present day. The emphasis is on the main currents of critical debate relating to Anglo-American modernism and the contents have been organised chronologically and are presented in their entirety without editorial matter, allowing readers to access the debates about Anglo-American modernism from a given epoch. These volume demonstrate that, far from being a reactionary or monolithic field, modernism was a richly diverse area of cultural activity and remains a dynamic field of critical inquiry. One of the main ways in which the collection seeks to offer this corrective is in its attention to the relationship between modernism and popular culture.

VA01-17 Notebooks of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The. 5Vols in 10 Parts.
  Coburn, Kathleen/ 9780415283991/ Price:£ 1520.00
During his adult life until his death in 1834, Coleridge made entries in more than sixty notebooks. Neither commonplace books nor diaries, but something of both, they contain notes on literary, theological, philosophical, scientific, social and psychological matters, plans for and fragments of works and many other items of great interest. Shortly after World War II, Kathleen Coburn, formerly of Victoria College in Toronto, rediscovered this great collection of unpublished manuscripts. With the support of the Coleridge estate, she embarked on a career of editing and publishing these volumes and was awarded with many honours for her work, including: a Leverhulme Award (1948), a Guggenheim Fellowship (1953), a Fellowship in the Royal Society of Canada (1958), the Order of Canada (1974) and an honorary doctorate from her own university. Originally projected as a five volume set (each volume consisting of a book of text and a book of notes) only four of the volumes have been published to date. This collection will not only make available those four volumes once again but will also, for the first time, publish the final long awaited fifth and final volume bringing the collection to its natural conclusion.

VA01-12 I. A. Richards: Selected Works 1919-1938, 10-Vols/Set.
  Constable, John/ 9780415217316/ Price:£ 1310.00
. A. Richards was the most influential of the first generation of academic literary theorists. This definitive collection of his writing between 1919 and 1938 shows that Richards' position was distinct from the emerging consensus in university literary education. Richards is often misunderstood as a master of a now superseded school of academic criticism and a forerunner of an institutionalised classroom method. This set will allow today's scholar and researcher to discover that Richards was actually one of its most severe critics.
VA01-11 Women and Radicalism in the Nineteenth Century, 4-Vols/Set.
  Sanders, Mike/ 9780415205252/ Price:£ 1065.00
This important collection of writings is about, and by, women connected with social and political movements between 1799-1870. It also records the attitudes of the great radical reformers to the role of women in society and documents the vast cultural changes brought about by industrialisation. The collection draws together the following key material: Volume I contains an extensive collection of writings from 19th century periodicals, reflecting the high point of working class women's involvement in radical movements. Volume II focuses on the writings of Frances Wright, an important figure in radical circles in both Britain and the US. Volume III illustrates the debates of the period surrounding marriage, sexuality and family. Included are writings by Frances Morrison, Robert Dale Owen, William Cobbett and William Lovett. Volume IV reprints J. D. Milne's 'Industrial Employment of Women'. This important but neglected text argues for the direct engagement of women in all areas of industrial life. This collection will appeal to anyone with an interest in women's history and Victorian studies.

VA01-19 George Eliot: Family History, 5-Vols/Set.
  Hughes, Kathryn/ 9780415232548/ Price:£ 1050.00
Any understanding of George Eliot's mature art must begin with an appreciation of the rich, difficult family dynamic out of which it was forged. Her friends and relations understood this, and went into print with their own accounts of the process by which George Eliot's early recollections became the basis, not just for her fiction, but also for her philosophic conservatism. The past - and memory of that past - was the cornerstone on which Eliot believed any chance of social or political progress must securely rest. This set, the fifth collection in the Family History series brings together valuable sources, including manuscript material from letters and diaries which give insights into these crucial influences. A new introduction places the material in its literary and historical context.
VA01-10 Feminism: Critical Concepts in Literary and Cultural Studies, 4-Vols/Set.
  Evans, Mary/ 9780415192835/ Price:£ 1005.00
Feminism has always refused compartmentalisation within any one social context, and this collection attests to its universal relevance. This is a guide for specialist and non-specialist readers to the many debates and discussions to which feminists have contributed in the past two hundred years. The collected works are arranged chronologically, giving readers a sense of the history of feminism, and the movement's changes and developments. At the same time, readers can also assess the extent to which some aspects of women's relationships with the social world have remained unchanged. An insightful introduction places the pieces selected in the appropriate intellectual and historical context, and a new index makes this an indispensable resource and searchable tool.

Serenity's Sight.
  Sisco, Cynthia/ 9780984514229/ Price:US$ 18.99
Serenity Ann Waltz's life has always had its challenges. Born to unwed teen parents in a small town in Minnesota could have, in itself, been disastrous. Things always seemed to work out though; her parents married when of age and with the support of Serenity's grandparents, were able to go to college and make a better life for their daughter. They believe in letting Serenity express her individuality and keeping an open and honest relationship, or Serenity has always been lead to believe. But on Serenity's thirteenth birthday, she sees something which will change their lives forever. She sees people no one else can see, and hears voices no one else can hear. While trying to unravel this new mystery in her life, and convincing herself she is not crazy, she falls into a web of deception and lies mingled with truth, and the destiny her family has been trying desperately to deny. Its enough to put anyone in the loony bin. In spite of all her new found problems, she also has to defend herself from the school bully, and maintain healthy relationships with her friends, not to mention, one of her childhood friends, David, and herself have seemed to make a deeper connection.
