The Places of Wit in Early Modern English Comedy

How to Read a Shakespearean Play Text

Adam Zucker | University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Edited by Eugene Giddens | Anglia Ruskin University

Zucker examines competency and incompetence in comedies by Shakespeare, Jonson and their contemporaries through histories of familiar sites staged in their plays, such as Windsor Forest and Covent Garden.

Giddens guides the reader through bibliography and critical editing, explaining how it works, what the different elements mean, and who created them. • Breaks down the component parts of the Shakespearean page, allowing readers to engage with the more obscure or ‘lost’ parts of play texts as part of their critical readings • Contains many informative illustrations which help to illuminate the discussion and aid understanding • Describes for the student how the early modern text turned into the modern edition we are accustomed to

Modern Syntax

Edited by Patrick Colm Hogan | University of Connecticut

A Coursebook Andrew Carnie | University of Arizona

One of the most important developments of the last fifty years has been the explosive increase in our knowledge about human language. Speech acquisition, reception, and production are arguably the most complex and distinctive operations of the human mind. This is a comprehensive and up-todate reference resource for this knowledge. • Systematic topical coverage, from discourse analysis to neurolinguistics, from acoustic phonetics to legal interpretation • Seven overview essays and nearly 500 entries on specific topics that lay out basic principles for those unfamiliar with the field, but also incorporate recent research and theorization • Provides an affordable, up-to-date, and accessible (but not reductive or overly simplified) one-volume reference resource for knowledge of language science

Assuming no previous background in syntax, this practical coursebook introduces all the basics of modern syntactic analysis in a simple step-by-step fashion. Each unit is constructed so that the reader discovers new ideas, formulates hypotheses and practises fundamentals. Feedback and comment sections are included for students to monitor their progress. • Unique approach to introducing the topic with short explanatory sections followed by stimulating practice exercises to be completed on the page • Feedback and comment sections allow students to monitor their understanding of the material • Assumes no previous background in syntax Grammar and syntax

Familiar Objects and their Shadows

Practical Ethics Third edition Peter Singer | Princeton University, New Jersey

Crawford L. Elder | University of Connecticut

Most contemporary metaphysicians are sceptical about the reality of familiar objects. They prefer an ontology of the spatially tiny or temporally tiny (or both). Crawford L. Elder argues that all such attempts to ‘explain away’ familiar objects project downwards, onto the tiny entities, structures and features of familiar objects themselves. • Uses an externalist picture of how thought and language relate to the world, providing grounds for full-strength realism about familiar objects • Draws on scientific reasoning for believing in the reality of familiar objects • Offers legitimate philosophical reasons for resisting the program of recognizing tiny precise entities in place of familiar objects Epistemology and metaphysics | Cambridge Studies in Philosophy

Interpreting Ancient Figurines Context, Comparison, and Prehistoric Art Richard G. Lesure | University of California, Los Angeles

Examines ancient figurines from several world areas to address recurring challenges in the interpretation of prehistoric art. Early interpreters seized fancifully on resemblances between figurines from different places, but contemporary practice rejects such interpretive leaps. Lesure argues for the necessity of comparison and offers a new analytical framework. • Comparison between contexts has larger theoretical implications, since it is central both to the contemporary rejection of traditional interpretations and to ongoing tensions between those who ‘interpret’ and those who ‘explain’ • This book mediates between extremes, building on the idea that formerly antagonistic perspectives can, collectively, contribute to a better understanding of the past • Among studies of figurines, this book is unique for its extended attention to multiple world areas; its well-illustrated case studies consider prehistoric art from Europe, the Near East and Mexico Prehistory

Human Attention in Digital Environments

Fundamental Questions in Cross-Cultural Psychology

Edited by Claudia Roda | The American University of Paris, France

Edited by Fons J. R. van de Vijver | Universiteit van Tilburg

Phones, computers and PDAs all offer information and interaction opportunities well above our processing abilities, placing continuous demands on our cognitive and perceptual systems.

Rethinking School Bullying

The New Authority

Towards an Integrated Model Roz Dixon | Birkbeck College, University of London

Family, School, and Community Haim Omer | Tel-Aviv University

Rethinking the Judicial Settlement of Reconstruction Pamela Brandwein | University of Michigan, Ann Arbor

Labor’s Conflict Big Business, Workers and the Politics of Class Tom Bramble | University of Queensland

Unveiling a lost jurisprudence of rights that provided expansive possibilities for protecting blacks’ physical safety and electoral participation even as it left public accommodation rights undefended, Pamela Brandwein offers a path-breaking analysis that will be of interest to constitutional scholars, legal historians and scholars of race and American political development. • The book offers the first fully developed challenge to standard legal and historical wisdom about ‘state action’ doctrine • It shows that an understanding of the Supreme Court’s role in American politics depends on investigations of the discursive and institutional contexts in which legal concepts are shaped, debated, and deployed • It uses an historical case study to overcome the formalist-realist divide in legal studies, demonstrating that it is false to imagine Court decisions as either high jurisprudence or low politics

Once widely regarded as the workers’ greatest hope for a better world, the ALP today would rather project itself as a responsible manager of Australian capitalism. Labor’s Conflict provides a thoroughly insightful account of the transformations in the Party’s policies, performances and structures since its formation. • The first book that tells the story of the ALP from the beginning through to the Rudd/Gilliard era • Rejects the self-serving arguments of Labor and Coalition politicians, taking a controversial stand in the debates about the nature of the Labor Party • Provides a clear framework for understanding the ALP, outlines the history from the start and concentrates on recent developments

Origins of Political Extremism Mass Violence in the Twentieth Century and Beyond Manus I. Midlarsky | Rutgers University, New Jersey

Political extremism is amongst the most destructive forms of human expression. During the 20th century over 100 million people lost their lives at the hands of extremist violence.

Women’s Rights in Democratizing States Just Debate and Gender Justice in the Public Sphere Denise M. Walsh | University of Virginia

Denise Walsh offers a new explanation for why advances in women’s rights rarely occur in democratizing states, arguing that leading institutions in the public sphere are highly gendered, meaning women’s ability to shape the content of public debate and put pressure on the state to advance their rights is limited. • Offers a new approach for analyzing the quality of democracy called just debate • More comprehensive than most gender scholarship as it not only analyzes women’s movements and the legislature, but also political parties, trade unions and the media • Offers a framework for empirically assessing the public sphere Comparative politics

Although it would seem that elections matter little in authoritarian countries, elections are not only common in authoritarian regimes but also very useful for the dictator in efforts to keep power. This book examines the significance of elections in authoritarian Egypt. • One of very few studies of Middle Eastern politics that uses a mixed-methods approach – (a combination of qualitative description based on field work and statistical analysis) • Understanding the political situation in Egypt is particularly important given the likely transition that will take place in the next year or two to a new ruler there • Book includes a chapter looking at authoritarian elections in a wider set of Middle Eastern cases, and should interest both students of the Middle East as well as those interested in authoritarian politics outside the Middle East

Electoral Systems and the Balance of ConsumerProducer Power

Collective Killings in Rural China during the Cultural Revolution

Eric C. C. Chang | Michigan State University

Yang Su | University of California, Irvine

The authors find that in electoral systems in which the seat share of parties is highly sensitive to their vote share, regulation systematically favors consumers, lowering real prices, all else equal, by ten percent. • Original and important finding relevant to political science, economics, policy and law • Theoretically (formally) developed • Rigorously tested (empirically)

Although it was one of the monumental events, the Cultural Revolution remains one of the most understudied political mass movements.

The Transformation of International Orders Andrew Phillips | Australian National University, Canberra

Edited by Gretchen Helmke | University of Rochester, New York

Oligarchy Jeffrey A. Winters | Northwestern University, Illinois


For centuries, oligarchs were viewed as empowered by wealth, an idea muddled by elite theory early in the twentieth century. The common thread for oligarchs across history is that wealth defines them, empowers them and inherently exposes them to threats. • This is the only book available in the English language entirely devoted to the important subject of oligarchs and oligarchy • The theory it advances is equally applicable to oligarchs in ancient and contemporary times, but in a way that accounts for how and why oligarchies vary • The book is pathbreaking in its analysis of the US case as oligarchic (and yet democratic) and it also offers fresh interpretations of Indonesia, ancient Athens and Rome, Singapore and the Philippines

Quirino Paris | University of California, Davis

Money, Credit, and the Economy Arie Arnon | Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Israel

Ideal for graduate students who have already taken a graduate course in microeconomic theory, this book revisits the same topics (such as price taking and monopoly) but makes them operational with a mathematical programming approach that extends their discussion to multi-input and multi-output scenarios. • Introduces novel specification called the equilibrium problem that does not require constraining/reductionist (and unrealistic) assumptions • All economic problems analyzed are cast in the unifying framework of the linear complementarity problem • Many numerical examples are provided to illustrate the various models along with command files for GAMS (the commercial computing application)

Law Boilerplate Clauses, International Commercial Contracts and the Applicable Law Common Law Contract Models and Commercial Transactions Subject to Civilian Governing Laws Edited by Giuditta Cordero-Moss | Universitetet i Oslo

Violence against Women under International Human Rights Law

After Abu Ghraib

Alice Edwards | Oxford University, Refugee Studies Centre


Exploring Human Rights in America and the Middle East Shadi Mokhtari

It looks at both the human rights failings and opportunities that emerged after September 11th and particularly after Abu Ghraib. • Places American and Middle Eastern experiences with human rights after September 11th side by side • Brings out both the human rights projects’ failings and renewed promise during the era; it includes the era’s lessons for moving the human rights project forward • Interdisciplinary approach and methodology (combining critical human rights/legal theory and constructivist theory from international relations)

Disability Rights Activists and Legal Mobilization Lisa Vanhala | Centre for Socio-Legal Studies, Oxford University

What Their Contingency Fees Really Cost America Lester Brickman | Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law

Modernising Civil Liability Law in Europe, China, Brazil and Russia


The Lawyer-Judge Bias in the American Legal System

Texts and Commentaries Gert Brüggemeier | Universität Bremen

Benjamin H. Barton | University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Via a commentary on recent legislature on civil liability in China, Brazil and Russia, Gert Brüggemeier presents a proposal for reform of the area based on redesigning negligence and introducing stricter forms of liability. • Proposes a new perspective on civil liability law that will be welcomed by those who feel uncomfortable with the traditional dominance of the fault principle • Contains a critique of the European harmonisation proposals (PETL and DCFR VI) that will appeal to those who are sceptical about ‘hybrids’ or ‘mixed systems’ of civil and common law • Broadens the Europe-centred discourse to important civil law regimes outside Europe, making it clear that civil law can only be discussed appropriately in a global perspective

Virtually all American judges are former lawyers, a shared background that results in the lawyer-judge bias. This book argues that these lawyer-judges instinctively favor the legal profession in their decisions and that this bias has far-reaching and deleterious effects on American law. • Presents a topic that will interest lawyers, legal academics, economists and political scientists • Is comprehensive in its evidence of a pro-legal profession bias • Breaks new ground by demonstrating how judicial background and thought processes affect the law itself US law

The Jew, the Cathedral and the Medieval City Synagoga and Ecclesia in the Thirteenth Century Nina Rowe | Fordham University, New York

In the thirteenth century, sculptures of Synagoga and Ecclesia – paired female personifications of the Synagogue defeated and the Church triumphant – became a favored motif on cathedral façades in France and Germany.

Group Identity in the Renaissance World Hannah Chapelle Wojciehowski | University of Texas, Austin

This book argues that radically new concepts of group identity emerged during the Renaissance. Hannah Chapelle Wojciehowski reconsiders that transformational era in a global context and persuasively argues that we think of that age as a ‘re-networking’ of the world and its peoples, rather than a ‘rebirth’ of classical antiquity. • Offers unique insights on groups and their identities and behaviors, drawing on principles of social network theory and psychoanalysis, culminating in proposing a historical theory of groups • Considers the Renaissance in a truly global context, incorporating South Asia, Africa, Brazil, the Atlantic sugar islands and the Caribbean • Considers important European events, including religious conflict, slavery, trade and exploration in a global context, discussing their impact on non-European peoples, economies and societies European history after 1450

The Two Latin Cultures and the Foundation of Renaissance Humanism in Medieval Italy

Feminism, Absolutism, and Jansenism Louis XIV and the Port Royal Nuns Daniella Kostroun | Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis

Examines the role of the nuns of Port-Royaldes-Champs in the Jansenist struggle against absolutism. Paradoxically, it was the nuns’ adherence to their strict religious rule and the ideal of pious, innocent and politically disinterested behavior that allowed them to challenge absolutism effectively, creating a feminist defense of women’s spiritual and rational equality and of the autonomy of the individual subject. • A dramatic narrative of power struggles between abbesses, the nuns they govern and their king, this history highlights the nuns’ resistance to royal persecution and overturns the long-standing myth that they were passive victims • A social and cultural history of Bourbon absolutism from the perspective of women and religion • An investigation of the roots of modern feminism in the culture and institutions of old regime France European history after 1450

Ronald G. Witt | Duke University, North Carolina

This book traces the intellectual life of the Kingdom of Italy, the birthplace of humanism in the mid thirteenth century. Ronald G. Witt argues that the early emergence of humanism in northern Italy resulted from the precocious development of a lay intelligentsia in the region, whose participation in the culture of Latin writing fostered the beginnings of the intellectual movement which would eventually revolutionize all of Europe. • The book’s scope includes a four hundred and fifty year period of the cultural development of western Europe as related specifically to the Kingdom of Italy • Latin culture is broadly defined as comprising religious writings, literary works, legal scholarship, and documents • Cultural change throughout is related to economic, political, and religious history not only in Italy but in France, Germany, and England European history after 1450

Gender, Honor, and Charity in Late Renaissance Florence

Russians, Jews, and the Pogroms of 1881–1882

Philip Gavitt | St Louis University, Missouri

John Doyle Klier | University College London

This book examines the important social role of charitable institutions for women and children in late Renaissance Florence.

Anti-Jewish pogroms rocked the Russian Empire in 1881–2, plunging both the Jewish community and the imperial authorities into crisis. Focusing on a wide range of responses to the pogroms, this book offers the most balanced and comprehensive study of the crisis to date. • Presents a balanced view of the events of 1881–2 as a crisis for both Jews and the Russian Empire, giving an insight into the complexities of responses to the pogroms • By dismissing the notion that the Russian authorities instigated or supported the pogroms, the author opens the field for a comparative study of collective ethnic violence • Introduces many new sources which have only recently been accessible after the fall of the Soviet Union

A Genealogy of Evil Anti-Semitism from Nazism to Islamic Jihad David Patterson | University of Texas, Dallas

David Patterson argues that Jihadist anti-Semitism is distinctively modern and stems from Nazi ideology.

Evolutionary History A

The Reinterpretation of Italian Economic History

Uniting History and Biology to Understand Life on Earth Edmund Russell | University of Virginia
