THE LUPUS ENCYCLOPEDIA A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Families DONALD E. THOMAS, JR., M.D., FACP, FACR Systematic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease that can affect any system and organ in the body. For the 1.4 million people in the United States who have lupus, their overactive immune system senses that different parts of the body do not belong—and it attacks these parts. The immune system may strike the cells that line the joints or tendons, for example, causing pain and swelling. An incredibly complex disease, lupus must be properly treated for the optimal health and well-being of the person who has it.

The Lupus Encyclopedia is an authoritative compendium that provides detailed explanations of every body system potentially affected by the disease along with practical advice about coping for people with lupus, their loved ones, caregivers, and medical professionals. Illustrated with photographs, diagrams, and tables, The Lupus Encyclopedia explains symptoms, diagnostic methods, medications and their potential side effects, and when to seek medical attention. Dr. Thomas provides information for women who wish to become pregnant and advises readers about working with a disability, complementary and alternative medicine, infections, cancer, and a host of other topics

LIVING WITH ITCH A Patient’s Guide GIL YOSIPOVITCH, M.D., and SHAWN G. KWATRA, M.D. We have all experienced itch, whether from insect bites or dry skin, but millions of people worldwide have chronic or even intractable itch. Just like chronic pain, chronic itch interferes with function—even with quality of life. Living with Itch offers relief, drawing on the authors’ vast knowledge of itch, the suffering it causes, and available treatments. Itch researchers and clinicians Drs. Gil Yosipovitch and Shawn G. Kwatra explain what itch is and the cascade of physiological events that cause us to experience it. They describe the many skin diseases, from atopic dermatitis (also known as eczema) to psoriasis, and conditions like chronic kidney disease, lymphoma, HIV, and neuropathies that cause itch.

Living with Itch provides information on preventing itch as well as topical and systemic therapies, regardless of what’s causing the itch. Patient and parent narratives explain how itch affects their lives and how they cope with a symptom that can, with medical and social support, be managed.

A Johns Hopkins Press Health Book GIL YOSIPOVITCH, M.D., is a professor of dermatology, neurobiology, and anatomy at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center.

A neuroscientist explores the biological bases of schizophrenia and tells the heartbreaking story of his own brother’s battle with the disease.

SCHIZOPHRENIA A Brother Finds Answers in Biological Science RONALD CHASE When bright lives are derailed by schizophrenia, bewildered and anxious families struggle to help and to cope, even as scientists search for causes and treatments that prove elusive. Painful and often misunderstood, schizophrenia profoundly affects people who have the disease and their loved ones. Here Ronald Chase, an accomplished biologist, sets out to discover the facts about the disease and to better understand what happened to his older brother, Jim, who developed schizophrenia as a young adult. Chase’s account alternates between a fiercely loyal and honest memoir and rigorous scientific exploration. He finds scientific answers to deeply personal questions about the course of his brother’s illness. Chase also explores the stigma of mental illness, the evolution of schizophrenia, the paradox of its persistence despite low reproduction rates in persons with the disease, and the human stories behind death statistics. With the author’s intimate knowledge of the suffering caused by this disease, Schizophrenia emphasizes research strategies, the importance of sound scientific approaches, and the challenges that remain.

LIVING SAFELY, AGING WELL A Guide to Preventing Injuries at Home DOROTHY A. DRAGO, M.P.H.

Older adults can stay healthy longer by avoiding injury at home.

As we age, our sense of balance and our vision, hearing, and cognition become less sharp. These changes greatly increase our risk of injury. In Living Safely, Aging Well, nationally recognized safety expert Dorothy A. Drago spells out how to prevent unintentional injury while cooking, gardening, sleeping, driving—and just walking around the house. In the first part of the book Drago describes the causes of injuries by type—falls, burns, poisoning, and asphyxia—and explains how to decrease the risk of each. She then explores the home environment room by room, pointing out potential hazards and explaining how to avoid them, for example, by installing night lights, eliminating glass coffee tables, and using baby monitors. Lively line drawings make it easy for readers to visualize risks and implement prevention techniques. Living Safely, Aging Well pays special attention to hazards encountered by people with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. A chapter devoted to health literacy helps people and caregivers make the best use of the medical care system.

CARING FOR CHILDREN WHO HAVE SEVERE NEUROLOGICAL IMPAIRMENT A Life with Grace JULIE M. HAUER, M.D.

An expert physician empowers parents to make informed decisions about their child’s care.

Global impairment of the central nervous system, whether stable or progressive, is often called severe neurological impairment (SNI). A child who has SNI will be cared for both by specialist clinicians and by parents at home. A parent is a child’s best expert and advocate, and many parents become highly skilled in managing their child’s care. This guide provides information to help parents increase their knowledge and improve their caregiving skills. In Caring for Children Who Have Severe Neurological Impairment, Dr. Julie M. Hauer advocates shared decision making between family caregivers and healthcare providers. She details aspects of medical care such as pain, sleep, feeding, and respiratory problems. Tables and key points summarize discussions for clear, quick reference, while case studies and stories illustrate how different families approach decision making, communication, care plans, and informed consent. Parents and other caregivers will find this book to be indispensable—as will bioethicists clinicians, and others who care for children with neurological and neuromuscular disorders. Dr. Hauer offers hope and practical coping strategies in equal measure.

ZBIG

The Strategy and Statecraft of Zbigniew Brzezinski edited by CHARLES GATI with a foreword by President Jimmy Carter Zbigniew Brzezinski’s multifaceted career dealing with U.S. security and foreign policy has led him from the halls of academia to multiple terms in public service, including a stint as President Carter’s National Security Advisor from 1977 to 1981. He is a renowned policy analyst and author who frequently appears as a commentator on popular talk shows, including MSNBC’s Morning Joe and PBS’s NewsHour. Brzezinski’s strategic vision continues to carry a great deal of gravitas. To assess the ramifications of Brzezinski’s engagement in world politics and policy making, Charles Gati has enlisted many of the top foreign policy players of the past thirty years to reflect on and analyze the man and his work. His vibrant introduction and concluding one-on-one interview with Brzezinski lucidly frame the book’s critical assessment of this major statesman’s accomplishments.

“Charles Gati has done a service to scholars and to all who are interested in U.S. foreign policy. Zbig is both a long overdue tribute and a comprehensive, balanced, and much-needed study of Dr. Brzezinski’s extraordinary career.” ­—Madeleine Albright, former U. S. Secretary of State

Are alien civilizations really possible?

ALIEN UNIVERSE Extraterrestrial Life in Our Minds and in the Cosmos DON LINCOLN If extraterrestrials exist, where are they? What is the probability that somewhere out there in the universe an Earth-like planet supports an advanced culture? Why do so many people claim to have encountered aliens? In this gripping exploration, scientist Don Lincoln exposes and explains the truths about the belief in and the search for alien life. In the first half of Alien Universe, Lincoln looks to Western civilization’s collective image of aliens, showing how our perceptions of extraterrestrials have evolved over time. The roots of this belief can be traced as far back as our earliest recognition that there were other planets in the universe, and the idea of aliens has fascinated us ever since. The world was fooled in the nineteenth century during the Great Moon Hoax of 1835 and again in the twentieth with Orson Welles’s 1938 radio broadcast, The War of the Worlds. And our continuing interest is reflected in entertainment successes such as E. T., The X-Files, and Star Trek. The second half of the book deals with the scientific possibility that advanced alien civilizations do exist. For many years, researchers have sought to answer Enrico Fermi’s great paradox—if there are so many planets in the universe, and a high probability that many

When preserving our history, what do we choose to value, why, and who decides?

WHO OWNS AMERICA’S PAST? The Smithsonian and the Problem of History ROBERT C. POST In 1994, when the National Air and Space Museum announced plans to display the Enola Gay, the B-29 sent to destroy Hiroshima with an atomic bomb, the ensuing political uproar left the museum's parent Smithsonian Institution entirely unprepared. As the largest such complex in the world, the Smithsonian cares for millions of objects and has displayed everything from George Washington's sword to moon rocks to Dorothy’s ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz. Why did this particular object arouse such controversy? From an insider’s perspective, Robert C. Post’s Who Owns America’s Past? offers insight into the politics of display and the interpretation of history. Never before has a book about the Smithsonian detailed the recent and dramatic shift from collection-driven shows, with artifacts meant to speak for themselves, to concept-driven exhibitions, in which objects aim to tell a story, displayed like illustrations in

The definitive study on the history, meaning, art, and commerce of Amish quilts.

AMISH QUILTS Crafting an American Icon JANNEKEN SMUCKER Quilts have become a cherished symbol of Amish craftsmanship and the beauty of the simple life. Country stores in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and other tourist regions display row after row of handcrafted quilts—a favorite souvenir for tourists and a source of income for the quilters. In luxury homes, office buildings, and museums, the quilts have been preserved and displayed as priceless artifacts. Amish Quilts explores how these objects went from practical bed linens to contemporary art. In this in-depth study, illustrated with more than 100 stunning color photographs, Janneken Smucker discusses what makes an Amish quilt Amish. She examines the value of quilts to those who have made, bought, sold, exhibited, and preserved them and how that value changes as a quilt travels from Amish hands to marketplace to consumers. Through her own observations as well as oral histories, newspaper accounts, ephemera, and other archival sources, Smucker seeks to understand how the term “Amish” became a style, and what it means to both quiltmakers and consumers alike.

JANNEKEN SMUCKER is an assistant professor of history at West Chester

“Smucker’s excellent book is beautifully written and will significantly advance the scholarship in quilt studies and, more broadly, material culture studies and art history.

A YEAR ACROSS MARYLAND A Week-by-Week Guide to Discovering Nature in the Chesapeake Region BRYAN MacKAY When can you find ripe blueberries along the Appalachian Trail in Maryland? Where can you see the air filled with monarch butterflies as they migrate south each autumn? If you want to enjoy nature this weekend, where is the best place to visit? Bryan MacKay can tell you. Written as an almanac, A Year across Maryland invites you to explore the natural world throughout the year, from watching bald eagles nesting in January to harvesting mistletoe in December. Entries identify the best time and place to experience such wonders as wildflowers blooming, birds in migration, amphibians singing, and morel mushrooms ready to be picked, sliced, sautéed, and savored. Color photographs of more than seventy species enrich and illustrate the text. Every week of the year has a recommended “Trip of the Week,” while monthly personal essays that draw from MacKay’s field notes provide an intimate glimpse into a biologist’s encounters with plants and animals over the years.

“This is a delightful book packed with information on a diversity of organisms with explicit instructions on how to enjoy marvelous creatures virtually every day of the year. MacKay’s passion for natural history is palpable.” —Lytton John Musselman, author of Plants of the Chesapeake Bay: A Guide to Wildflowers, Grasses, Aquatic Vegetation,Trees, Shrubs, and Other Flora

MARYLAND IN BLACK AND WHITE Documentary Photography from the Great Depression and World War II CONSTANCE B. SCHULZ

Compelling photographs of people and places throughout Maryland during one of the nation’s most anxious decades.

Between 1935 and 1943, the United States government commissioned forty-four photographers to capture American faces, along with living and working conditions, across the country. Nearly 180,000 photographs were taken—4,000 in Maryland—and they are now preserved in the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress. Constance B. Schulz presents a selection of these images in Maryland in Black and White. Within these pages, the farms and coal fields of 1930s and ‘40s western Maryland, the tobacco fields of southern Maryland, watermen in wooden boats along the Eastern Shore, and smiling couples dancing at a wartime senior prom come back to life. These photographs reveal places we know but scarcely recognize and give us another look at the people of “the greatest generation.”

FRONT STOOPS IN THE FIFTIES Baltimore Legends Come of Age MICHAEL OLESKER Front Stoops in the Fifties recounts the monumental past of some of Baltimore’s most famous icons who grew up during the “decade of conformity.” Familiar faces such as Jerry Leiber, Nancy Pelosi, Thurgood Marshall, and Barry Levinson figure prominently in this gripping chronicle based on personal interviews and journalistic research. Michael Olesker marks the end of the fifties with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. “It was as if millions of us suddenly felt the need to express our anxieties and our anger, as if Kennedy’s murder exposed some hypocrisy at the heart of the American dream,” he writes. Focusing on the period leading up to this major turning point in U.S. history, Olesker looks to the individuals living through the changes that were just beginning to surface and would later come to prominence in the sixties.

“A highly readable local history lesson on the good, the bad, and the ugly of life here in the extremely edgy city of Baltimore, Maryland. Michael Olesker digs deep and his scathing, alarming, and sometimes hilarious reporting of our past asks the question—have we come a long way in fifty years or are our race and class issues still scarily the same?”                —John Waters

The first study of how the gap year can make young people more effective students and better citizens.

GAP YEAR How Delaying College Changes People in Ways the World Needs JOSEPH O’SHEA With some of the most prestigious universities in America now urging students to defer admissions so they can experience the world, the idea of the gap year has taken hold in America. Since its development in Britain nearly fifty years ago, taking time off between secondary school and college has allowed students the opportunity to travel, develop crucial life skills, and grow up, all while doing volunteer work in much needed parts of the developing world. Until now, there has been no systematic study of how the gap year helps students develop as young scholars and citizens. Joseph O’Shea has produced the first empirically based analysis of how the gap year influences student development. He also establishes a context for better understanding this personal development and suggests concrete ways universities and educators can develop effective gap year programs.

“O’Shea asks whether gap years are worthwhile with gusto and authority. His rich qualitative approach, packed with student interviews, provides ample evidence that the answer is ‘Yes.’ That year, done well, can be a springboard to college success by giving students strength, grit, confidence, inspiration, knowledge, curiosity, empathy, JOSEPH O’SHEA is director of Florida and more.” State University’s Office of Undergraduate —John B.

An unparalleled introduction to the amazing world of ocean waves.

THE SCIENCE OF OCEAN WAVES Ripples, Tsunamis, and Stormy Seas J. B. ZIRKER “Powerful ocean waves fascinate the public, and they have made a lot of news lately.” With that indisputable observation, scientist J. B. Zirker takes off on a whirlwind tour of the world of waves—from the “ordinary” waves that constantly churn the sea to the rogues or freaks that can rise up seemingly from nowhere to heights of 20 meters or more . . . and everything in between.

The Science of Ocean Waves explains in accessible language how waves are formed, how they move, how they become huge and destructive, and how they’re being studied now for clues that will help us plan for the future. Drawing on some of the recent storms that have devastated entire regions—such as Hurricane Katrina, the tsunami launched by the 2004 Sumatran earthquake, and the great

LIGHTS ON! The Science of Power Generation MARK DENNY

Watt’s up? A reader-friendly introduction to all things power.

Mark Denny takes us on a fun tour, examining the nature of energy, tracing the history of power generation, explaining the processes from production through transmission to use, and addressing questions that are currently in the headlines such as: • Is natural gas the best alternative energy source in the near term? • Could solar power be the answer to all our problems? • Why is nuclear power such a hard sell, and are the concerns valid? Devoting individual chapters to each of the sources of power—electrical, coal, oil and natural gas, hydro, nuclear, and solar—Denny explains the pros and cons of each, their availability worldwide, and which are in dwindling supply. Making clear that his approach is that of “a scientist and engineer, not a politician or businessman,” Denny addresses environmental concerns by providing information to help readers understand the science and engineering of power generation so they can discuss contemporary energy issues from an informed perspective.

How encounters with strongly electric fish informed our grasp of electricity.

SPARK FROM THE DEEP How Shocking Experiments with Strongly Electric Fish Powered Scientific Discovery WILLIAM J. TURKEL Spark from the Deep tells the story of how human beings came to understand and use electricity by studying the evolved mechanisms of strongly electric fish. These animals have the ability to shock potential prey or would-be predators with high-powered electrical discharges. William J. Turkel asks fresh questions about the evolutionary, environmental, and historical aspects of people’s interest in electric fish. Stimulated by painful encounters with electric catfish, torpedos, and electric eels, people learned to harness the power of electric shock for medical therapies and eventually developed technologies to store, transmit, and control electricity. Now we look to these fish as an inspiration for engineering new sensors, computer interfaces, autonomous undersea robots, and energy-efficient batteries.

“Turkel has a very imaginative and bold central proposition: that acquaintance with electric fishes is connected to the harnessing of electricity. He is able to bounce around among piscine evolution, plate tectonics, electromagnetism, the history of science, and much else with ease and aplomb. I can WILLIAM J.

Documents the disturbing history of four pacifists imprisoned for their refusal to serve during World War I.

PACIFISTS IN CHAINS The Persecution of Hutterites during the Great War DUANE C. S. STOLTZFUS To Hutterites and members of other peace churches, serving the military in any way goes against the biblical commandment “thou shalt not kill” and Jesus’s admonition to turn the other cheek when confronted with violence. Pacifists in Chains tells the story of four young men—Joseph Hofer, Michael Hofer, David Hofer, and Jacob Wipf—who followed these beliefs and refused to perform military service in World War I. The men paid a steep price for their resistance, imprisoned in Alcatraz and Fort Leavenworth, where the two youngest died. The Hutterites buried the men as martyrs, citing mistreatment. Using archival material, letters from the four men and others imprisoned during the war, and interviews with their descendants, Duane C. S. Stoltzfus explores the tension between a country preparing to enter into a world war and a people whose history of martyrdom for their pacifist beliefs goes back to their sixteenth-century Reformation beginnings.

DUANE C. S. STOLTZFUS is a professor of communication at Goshen College and the copy editor of The Mennonite

“Pacifists in Chains is a well-told and carefully documented account . . . Stoltzfus’s book shows the way that religious faith may substantively inform not only the opinions but also the practices of persons who choose to express their love of country in nonviolent ways during times of war. The study is particularly relevant in pointing out the way that even democratic governments often punish those who hold divergent perspectives.” —Rod Janzen, Fresno Pacific University

Soldiers lay wounded or sick as both sides struggled to get them fit to return to battle.

MARROW OF TRAGEDY The Health Crisis of the American Civil War MARGARET HUMPHREYS The Civil War was the greatest health disaster the United States has ever experienced, killing more than a million Americans and leaving many others injured or grieving. Poorly prepared to care for wounded and sick soldiers as the war began, Union and Confederate governments scrambled to provide doctoring and nursing, supplies, and shelter for those felled by warfare or disease. During the war soldiers suffered from measles, dysentery, and pneumonia and needed both preventive and curative food and medicine. Family members—especially women—and governments mounted organizational and support efforts, while army doctors learned to standardize medical thought and practice. Resources in the north helped return soldiers to battle, while Confederate soldiers suffered hunger and other privations and healed more slowly, when they healed at all. In telling the stories of soldiers, families, physicians, nurses, and administrators, historian Margaret Humphreys concludes that medical science was not as limited at the beginning of the war as has been portrayed. Medicine and public health clearly advanced during the war—and continued to do so after military hostilities ceased.

”If there is one study that shows us the significance of sickness in the Civil War, and the attempts to define and counter it, this is it.

How did American doctors come to be licensed on the terms we now take for granted?

LICENSED TO PRACTICE The Supreme Court Defines the American Medical Profession JAMES C. MOHR Licensed to Practice begins with an 1891 shooting in Wheeling, West Virginia, that left one doctor dead and another on trial for his life. Formerly close friends, the doctors had fallen out over the issue of medical licensing. Historian James C. Mohr calls the murder “a sorry personal consequence of the far larger and historically significant battle among West Virginia’s physicians over the future of their profession.” Through most of the nineteenth century, anyone could call themselves a doctor and could practice medicine on whatever basis they wished. An 1889 Supreme Court case, Dent

v. West Virginia, effectively transformed medical practice in the U.S. from an unregulated occupation to a legally recognized profession. The political and legal battles that led up to the decision were unusually bitter—especially among physicians themselves—and the outcome

was far from a foregone conclusion. So-called Regular physicians wanted to impose their own standards on the wide-open medical marketplace in which they and such non-Regulars as Thomsonians, Botanics, Hydropaths, Homeopaths, and Eclectics competed. The Regulars achieved their goal by persuading the state legislature to make it a crime for anyone to practice without a license from the Board of Health, which they controlled. When the high court approved that arrangement—despite constitutional challenges—the licensing precedents established in West Virginia became the bedrock on which the modern American medical structure was built.

ANXIETY A Short History ALLAN V. HORWITZ More people today report feeling anxious than ever before—even while living in relatively safe and prosperous modern societies. Almost one in five people experiences an anxiety disorder each year, and more than a quarter of the population admits to an anxiety condition at some point in their lives. Here Allan V. Horwitz, a sociologist of mental illness and mental health, narrates how this condition has been experienced, understood, and treated through the ages—from Hippocrates, through Freud, to today. Anxiety is rooted in an ancient part of the brain, and our ability to be anxious is inherited from species far more ancient than humans. Anxiety is often adaptive: it enables us to respond to threats. But when normal fear yields to what psychiatry categorizes as anxiety disorders, it becomes maladaptive. As Horwitz explores the history and multiple identities of anxiety—melancholia, nerves, neuroses, phobias, and so on—it becomes clear that every age has had its own anxieties and that culture plays a role in shaping how anxiety is expressed.

THE PKU PARADOX A Short History of a Genetic Disease DIANE B. PAUL and JEFFREY P. BROSCO

How did a disease of marginal public health significance acquire paradigmatic status in public health and genetics?

PKU (phenylketonuria) is a genetic disorder that causes severe cognitive impairment if it is not detected and treated with a strict and difficult diet. In a lifetime of practice, most physicians will never encounter a single case of PKU, yet every physician in the industrialized world learns about the disease in medical school and, since the early 1960s, the newborn heel stick test for PKU has been mandatory in many countries. Diane B. Paul and Jeffrey P. Brosco’s beautifully written book explains this paradox. In this first general history of PKU, a historian and a pediatrician explore how a rare genetic disease became the object of an unprecedented system for routine testing. The PKU

Paradox is informed by interviews with scientists, clinicians, policy makers, and individuals who live with the disease. The questions it raises touch on ongoing controversies about newborn screening and what happens to blood samples collected at birth.

“A highly compelling story about a successful medical intervention—literally life changing—that has also had unintended consequences. This study is extremely relevant to contemporary genomic medicine.” —M. Susan Lindee, University of Pennsylvania DIANE B. PAUL is a professor emerita at

Christine Kehl O’Hagan Charlie Pierce Kate Preskenis Emily Rapp Jennifer Rosner

Joanna Rudnick Isabel Stenzel Byrnes Anabel Stenzel Laurie Strongin Patrick Tracey Alice Wexler

In The Story Within, authors share powerful experiences of living with genetic disorders. Their stories illustrate the complexities involved in making decisions about genetic diseases: whether to be tested, who to tell, whether to have children, and whether and how to treat children medically, if treatment is available. More broadly, they consider how genetic information shapes the ways we see ourselves, the world, and our actions within it. People affected by genetic disease respond to such choices in varied and personal ways. These writers reflect that breadth of response, yet they share the desire to challenge a restricted sense of what “health” is or whose life has value. They write hoping to expand conversations about genetics and identity—to deepen debate and generate questions. Whether they or their families are affected by Huntington’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, genetic deafness or blindness, schizophrenia, cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, fragile X, or Fanconi anemia, their stories remind us that genetic health is complicated, dynamic, and above all, deeply personal.

“This unique collection by a star cast of authors meditates on the complex relationship between identity and genetics. The essays are innovative literary engagements with the difficult philosophical and emotional issues raised by particular genetic inheritances. The authors cover a variety of genetic conditions, with varying levels and kinds of genetic risks,and potential medical interventions,ranging from hereditary breast cancer to Huntington’s disease and more.” —Alexandra Stern, University of Michigan, author of Telling Genes: The Story of Genetic Counseling in America 35

A RAILROAD ATLAS OF THE UNITED STATES IN 1946 Volume 5: Iowa and Minnesota RICHARD C. CARPENTER

Beautifully drawn color maps portray the U.S. railroad network at its zenith.

The fifth volume of A Railroad Atlas of the United States in 1946 provides a comprehensive record of the railroad system as it existed in Iowa and Minnesota in 1946—the apex of America’s post-war rail network, when steam locomotives still dominated and passenger trains stopped at towns all along the rail lines. Eventually railroad mergers, the automobile, and the airplane changed what many viewed as the world’s premier rail system. Richard C. Carpenter’s hand-drawn color maps depict in precise detail the various trunk and secondary railroad lines that served scores of towns while indicating such features as long-since-demolished coaling stations, towns that functioned solely as places where crews were changed, tunnels, viaducts, and especially interlocking stations. Praise for previous volumes

“Carpenter continues his admirable effort to map American railroads in the immediate postwar era . . .

fiction. Theodore Ziolkowski traces the evolution of cults, orders, lodges, secret societies, and conspiracies through various literary manifestations—drama, romance, epic, novel, opera—down to the thrillers of the twenty-first century.

Lure of the Arcane considers Euripides’s Bacchae, Andreae’s Chymical Wedding, Mozart’s The Magic Flute, and Eco’s Foucault’s Pendulum, among other seminal works. Mimicking the genre’s quest-driven narrative arc, the reader searches for the significance of conspiracy fiction and is rewarded with the author’s cogent reflections in the final chapter. After much investigation, Ziolkowski reinforces Umberto Eco’s notion that the most powerful secret, the magnetic center of conspiracy fiction, is in fact “a secret without content.”

“This is an excellent book, an original and substantial contribution. I would expect it to find many readers, not just among fellow scholars. Since conspiracy, and conspiracy fiction, is a hot topic, I could imagine this book being invaluable as a guide to a university course that sought to place Umberto Eco and Dan Brown in their long-term intellectual context.” —Ritchie Robertson, St. John’s College, Oxford

An in-depth look into the life and work of the creator of cool: Elmore Leonard.

BEING COOL The Work of Elmore Leonard CHARLES J. RZEPKA Widely known as the crime fiction writer whose work led to the movies Get Shorty and

Out of Sight, Elmore Leonard has a special knack for creating cool characters, which for him means characters who are good at what they do. The dope dealers, bookies, grifters, financial advisers, talent agents, shady attorneys, hookers, models, and crooked cops of Leonard’s world may be nefarious, but they are generally confident, skilled, and composed, and they cope without effort or thought. In Being Cool, Charles Rzepka draws on more than twelve hours of personal interviews with Leonard and applies what he learned to his close analysis of Leonard’s long life and prodigious output: 45 published novels, 39 published and unpublished short stories, and numerous essays written over the course of six decades. Leonard’s writing methods and style epitomize how he conceives “being cool.” Rzepka delineates the stages and patterns that characterize the author’s creative evolution. Like jazz greats, Leonard forged an individual style immediately recognizable for its voice and rhythm, including his characters’ rat-a-tat recitations, curt backhands, and ragged trains of thought. Taking being cool as the highway through Leonard’s life and works, Rzepka finds plenty of byways to explore along the way.

“Rzepka uncovers interesting patterns that link the individual works and identifies connections between incidents in Leonard’s life and his fiction.This is an important work on an important writer.” —David Geherin, Eastern Michigan University 41

THE LOUSY ADULT stories by WILLIAM J. COBB

Ten short stories depict a kaleidoscope of characters— maybe even someone you know.

In The Lousy Adult, William J. Cobb reveals a world where love and respect collide with achievement and desire, a world where people often get what they want, yet must pay the price of alienation, remorse, and retribution in order to obtain it. In “The Sea Horse,” a teenage boy defends a battered woman against her abusive husband while he deals with the loss of his own parents. In “Warsaw, 1984,” a young man travels through Europe and ends up in a relationship in a country he can’t understand. The

Lousy Adult presents ten short stories about defrocked priests, guilty electricians, hardened mothers, and other colorful characters who portray the complexity of the human race. Praise for William J. Cobb’s The Fire Eaters

“Cobb’s short stories, printed in the New Yorker and other magazines, hinted at the power he displays in this beautifully controlled and convincing debut, winner of the 1992 Associated Writing Programs award for the novel.” —Publishers Weekly Johns Hopkins: Poetry and Fiction John T. Irwin, General Editor

“This is easily one of the most important books on Austen published in recent years, a must read. Thanks to fantastic volumes like this one . . . Austen’s books are finally being read and reassessed in the context of their times and are no longer given the backhanded compliment of being called ‘timeless’ . . . Essential.” —Choice “Matters of Fact in Jane Austen is unlike any previous work of Austen criticism, both in its attention to minute historical detail and in its pioneering claims . . . [it] is meticulously researched, beautifully written, highly original, and unquestionably timely. It ought to stimulate not just rousing arguments but provoke, too, further historically attuned Austen scholarship.” —Los Angeles Review of Books “This is a book whose charm and clarity easily overcome any initial resistance one might have to its central claim that Austen’s work actively partakes in what historians now call ‘celebrity culture’ . . . One of Barchas’s most surprising—and ultimateJANINE BARCHAS is an associate proly convincing—claims is that Austen, like James Joyce after her, ‘not only names fessor of English at the University of Texas, her fictional characters with uncanny historical precision but maps them with Austin. She is the author of Graphic Design, equal care through historical settings’. She illustrates this with careful attention to Print Culture, and the Eighteenth-Century Austen’s own historical reading and letters, prints of contemporary maps, portraits Novel. and country houses.” —Times Literary Supplement “An excellent example of a truly interdisciplinary approach to literary criticism.” —Review of English Studies

How do some university presidents “lose their way,” and why are their consequential dismissals given so much media attention?

PRESIDENCIES DERAILED Why University Leaders Fail and How to Prevent It STEPHEN JOEL TRACHTENBERG, GERALD B. KAUVAR, and E. GRADY BOGUE University presidents have become as expendable as football coaches—one bad season, scandal, or political or financial misstep and they are sent packing. These high-profile appointments are increasingly scrutinized by faculty, administrators, alumni, and the media, and problems are discussed all too publicly. A combination of constrained resources and a new trend toward hiring from outside of academia results in tensions between governing boards and presidents that can erupt quickly. Sometimes presidents are dismissed for performance, financial, or institutional “fit” reasons, but there are nearly always political reasons as well. Presidencies Derailed is the first book to explore the reasons why university presidencies fail and how university and college leadership can prevent these unfortunate situations.

The now-classic tale of a sixteenth-century miller facing the Roman Inquisition.

THE CHEESE AND THE WORMS The Cosmos of a Sixteenth-Century Miller CARLO GINZBURG with a new preface translated by John and Anne C. Tedeschi The Cheese and the Worms is an incisive study of popular culture in the sixteenth century as seen through the eyes of one man, the miller known as Menocchio, who was accused of heresy during the Inquisition and sentenced to death. Carlo Ginzburg uses the trial records to illustrate the confusing political and religious conditions of the time. Ginzburg’s influential book book has been widely regarded as an early example of the analytic, case-oriented approach known as microhistory. In a thoughtful new preface, Ginzburg offers his own corollary to Menocchio’s story as he considers the discrepancy between the intentions of the writer and what gets written. The miller’s story and Ginzburg’s work continue to resonate with modern readers because they focus on how oral and written culture are inextricably linked. Menocchio’s 500-year-old challenge to authority remains evocative and vital today.

The interactions between Indians and Europeans changed America—and both cultures.

NEW WORLDS FOR ALL Indians, Europeans, and the Remaking of Early America

second edition COLIN G. CALLOWAY Although many Americans consider the establishment of the colonies as the birth of this country, in fact early America existed long before the arrival of the Europeans. From coast to coast, Native Americans had created enduring cultures, and the subsequent European invasion remade much of the land and society. In New Worlds for All, Colin G. Calloway explores the unique and vibrant new cultures that Indians and Europeans forged together in early America. The journey toward this hybrid society kept Europeans’ and Indians’ lives tightly entwined: living, working, worshiping, traveling, and trading together—as well as fearing, avoiding, despising, and killing one another. In some areas, settlers lived in Indian towns, eating Indian food. In the Mohawk Valley, New York, Europeans tattooed their faces; Indians drank tea. A unique American identity emerged. The second edition of New Worlds for All incorporates fifteen years of additional

Prelude to Revolution tells the story of a critical event in America’s early history, when a new nation’s fate was still uncertain.

PRELUDE TO REVOLUTION The Salem Gunpowder Raid of 1775 PETER CHARLES HOFFER Before colonial Americans could declare independence, they had to undergo a change of heart. Beyond a desire to rebel against British mercantile and fiscal policies, they had to believe that they could stand up to the fully armed British soldier. Prelude to Revolution uncovers one story of how the Americans found that confidence. On April 19, 1775, British raids on Lexington Green and Concord Bridge made history, but it was an episode nearly two months earlier in Salem, Massachusetts, that set the stage for the hostilities. Peter Charles Hoffer has discovered records and newspaper accounts of a British gunpowder raid on Salem.

CHASING SOUND Technology, Culture, and the Art of Studio Recording from Edison to the LP SUSAN SCHMIDT HORNING

How technically enhanced studio recordings revolutionized music and the music industry.

In Chasing Sound, Susan Schmidt Horning traces the cultural and technological evolution of recording studios in the United States from the first practical devices to the modern multitrack studios of the analog era. Charting the technical development of studio equipment, the professionalization of recording engineers, and the growing collaboration between artists and technicians, she shows how the earliest efforts to capture the sound of live performances eventually resulted in a trend toward studio creations that extended beyond live shows, ultimately reversing the historic relationship between live and recorded sound. A former performer herself, Schmidt Horning draws from a wealth of original oral interviews with major labels and independent recording engineers, producers, arrangers, and musicians, as well as memoirs, technical journals, popular accounts, and sound recordings. Recording engineers and producers, she finds, influenced technological and musical change as they sought to improve the sound of records. By investigating the complex relationship between sound engineering and popular music, she reveals the increasing reliance on technological intervention in the creation as well as in the reception of music. The recording studio, she argues, is at the center of musical culture in the twentieth century.

Track Albert Einstein’s life in Berlin with this unique guide.

EINSTEIN’S BERLIN In the Footsteps of a Genius DIETER HOFFMANN Lured by a top academic position sponsored by the Prussian Academy of Sciences, Albert Einstein moved from Zurich to Berlin in 1914 and lived there until 1932, just weeks before Hitler became chancellor of Germany. During this fraught economic and political time, Einstein developed the general theory of relativity, gained worldwide fame, supported democratic, socialist, pacifist, and Zionist causes, and withstood the growing ire of ultranationalists. Naturally, he became entwined in a network of people and places throughout the city. With a foreword by Nobel Prize winner Walter Kohn, Einstein’s Berlin combines narrative, maps, and period photographs to tell this story in the form of a sophisticated, annotated city guide, allowing readers and travelers to follow the physicist’s footsteps throughout Berlin. Dieter Hoffmann conveys how Einstein’s life and work were linked to the scientific and social life of the city and inspires the reader to explore the places where he made his mark.

Born and raised in Berlin, DIETER

What does it mean for history to disappear?

LITERATURE IN THE ASHES OF HISTORY CATHY CARUTH Cathy Caruth juxtaposes the writings of psychoanalysts, literary and political theorists, and literary authors who write in a century faced by a new kind of history, one that is made up of events that seem to undo, rather than produce, their own remembrance. At the heart of each chapter is the enigma of a history that, in its very unfolding, seems to be slipping away before our grasp. What does it mean for history to disappear? And what does it mean to speak of a history that disappears? These questions, Caruth suggests, lie at the center of the psychoanalytic texts that frame this book, as well as the haunting stories and theoretical arguments that resonate with each other in profound and surprising ways. In the writings of Honoré de Balzac, Hannah Arendt, Ariel Dorfman, Wilhelm Jensen, Sigmund Freud, and Jacques Derrida, we encounter, across different stakes and different languages, a variety of narratives that bear witness not simply to the past but also to the pasts we have not known and that repeatedly return us to a future that remains beyond imagination. These stories of trauma cannot be limited to the catastrophes they name, and the theory of catastrophic history may ultimately be written in a language that already lingers in a time that comes to us from the other side of the disaster.

CATHY CARUTH is a leading figure in psychoanalytically informed literary theory and humanistic approaches to trauma. She is the Frank H. T. Rhodes Professor of Humane Letters at Cornell University, with appointments in the Departments of English and Comparative Literature. Her books include Empirical Truths and Critical

HOW LITERATURE PLAYS WITH THE BRAIN The Neuroscience of Reading and Art PAUL B. ARMSTRONG

An original interdisciplinary study positioned at the intersection of literary theory and neuroscience.

“Literature matters,” says Paul B. Armstrong, “for what it reveals about human experience, and the very different perspective of neuroscience on how the brain works is part of that story.” In How Literature Plays with the Brain, Armstrong examines the parallels between certain features of literary experience and functions of the brain. His central argument is that literature plays with the brain through experiences of harmony and dissonance which set in motion oppositions that are fundamental to the neurobiology of mental functioning. These oppositions negotiate basic tensions in the operation of the brain between the drive for pattern, synthesis, and constancy and the need for flexibility, adaptability, and openness to change. The challenge, Armstrong argues, is to account for the ability of readers to find incommensurable meanings in the same text, for example, or to take pleasure in art that is harmonious or dissonant, symmetrical or distorted, unified or discontinuous and disruptive.

How Literature Plays with the Brain is the first book to use the resources of neuroscience and phenomenology to analyze aesthetic experience. For the neuroscientific community, the study suggests that different areas of research—the neurobiology of vision and reading, the brain-body interactions underlying emotions—may be connected to a variety of aesthetic and literary phenomena. For critics and students of literature, the study engages fundamental questions within the humanities: What is aesthetic experience? What happens when we read a literary work? How does the interpretation of literature relate to other ways of knowing?

Addresses the importance of literature in the work of one of America’s most important contemporary philosophers.

STANLEY CAVELL AND THE CLAIM OF LITERATURE DAVID RUDRUM Stanley Cavell is widely recognized as one of America’s most important contemporary philosophers. His writings have attracted considerable attention among literary critics and theorists. Stanley Cavell and the Claim of Literature is the first monograph to comprehensively address the importance of literature in Cavell’s philosophy, and, in turn, the potential effect of his philosophy on contemporary literary criticism. David Rudrum dedicates a chapter to each of the principal writers that occupy Cavell, including Shakespeare, Thoreau, Beckett, Wordsworth, Ibsen, and Poe, and incorporates chapters on tragedy, skepticism, ethics, and politics. Through detailed analysis of these works, Rudrum explores Cavell’s ideas on the nature of reading; the relationships between literary language, ordinary language, and performative language; the status of authors and characters; the link between tragedy and ethics; and the nature of political conversation in a democracy. Rudrum casts a wide net that Cavell scholars as well as people interested in the philosophy of tragedy, aesthetics, and literary skepticism will find compelling.

“This is an original and exciting book, true to Cavell’s trailblazing work in the Emersonian categories both of instruction and of provocation.” —William Flesch, Brandeis University

An innovative look at the dynamic role of sound in the culture of the African Diaspora as found in poetry, film, travel narratives, and popular music.

BLACK SOUNDSCAPES WHITE STAGES The Meaning of Francophone Sound in the Black Atlantic EDWIN C. HILL JR. Black Soundscapes White Stages explores the role of sound in understanding the African Diaspora on both sides of the Atlantic, from the City of Light to the islands of the French Antilles. From the writings of European travelers in the seventeenth century to short-wave radio transmissions in the early twentieth century, Edwin C. Hill Jr. uses music, folk song, film, and poetry to listen for the tragic cri nègre. Building a conceptualization of black Atlantic sound inspired by Frantz Fanon’s pioneering work on colonial speech and desire, Hill contends that sound constitutes a terrain of contestation, both violent and pleasurable, where colonial and anti-colonial ideas about race and gender are critically imagined, inscribed, explored, and resisted. In the process, this book explores the dreams and realizations of black diasporic mobility and separation as represented by some of its most powerful soundtexts and cultural practitioners, and it poses questions about their legacies for us today.

EDWIN C. HILL JR. is an assistant professor of French and comparative literature at the University of Southern

“Hill breaks new ground in the field of Francophone studies with his nuanced intersection of film studies, musicology, and literary criticism. His analyses of the musical form the biguine and the poetry of Léon-Gontran Damas, probably the least studied of the major Negritude poets, are especially important.

poration of vernacular poetry—a legacy shaped by nostalgia, contempt, and fraudulence. Daniel Tiffany reactivates and fundamentally redefines the concept of kitsch, freeing it from modernist misapprehension and ridicule. He excavates the forgotten history of poetry’s relation to kitsch, beginning with the exuberant revival of archaic (and often spurious) ballads in Britain in the early eighteenth century. Tiffany argues that the ballad revival—the earliest formation of what we now call popular culture—sparked a dubious but seemingly irresistible flirtation with poetic forgery that endures today in the ambiguity of the kitsch artifact: is it real or fake, art or kitsch? He goes on to trace the genealogy of kitsch in texts ranging from nursery rhymes and poetic melodrama to the lyric commodities of Baudelaire. He scrutinizes the Fascist “paradise” inscribed in Ezra Pound’s Cantos, as well as the poetry of the New York School and its debt to pop and “plastic”art. By exposing and elaborating the historical poetics of kitsch, My Silver Planet transforms our sense of kitsch as a category of material culture.

Important revisions to the history of advertising and its connection to Romantic-era literature.

LITERARY ADVERTISING AND THE SHAPING OF BRITISH ROMANTICISM NICHOLAS MASON Literary Advertising and the Shaping of British Romanticism investigates the entwined histories of the advertising industry and the gradual commodification of literature over the course of the Romantic Century (1750–1850). In this well-written and detailed study, Nicholas Mason argues that the seemingly antagonistic arenas of marketing and literature share a common genealogy and, in many instances, even a symbiotic relationship. Drawing from archival materials such as publisher account books, merchant trade cards, and author letters, Mason traces the beginnings of many modern advertising methods— including product placement, limited-time offers, and journalistic puffery—to the British book trade during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Until now, Romantic scholars have not fully recognized advertising’s cultural significance or the importance of this period in the origins of modern advertising. Mason explores Lord Byron’s appropriation of branding, Letitia Elizabeth Landon’s experiments in visual marketing, and late-Romantic debates over advertising’s claim to be a new branch of the literary arts. Mason uses the antics of Romanticera advertising to illustrate the profound implications of commercial modernity, both in economic practices governing the book trade and, more broadly, in the development of the modern idea of literature.

“A well-written, thoroughly researched, and impressively argued project. Mason has produced a timely and important addition that will do a great deal to clarify and enrich an already energetic set of debates. This book will become required reading for anyone interested in the rich connections between advertising, cultures of modernity, and Romantic literature.” —Paul Keen, Carleton University 63

THE FAIRY WAY OF WRITING

MUSICA NATURALIS

Shakespeare to Tolkien

Speculative Music Theory and Poetics, from Saint Augustine to the Late Middle Ages in France

KEVIN PASK In The Fairy Way of Writing, Kevin Pask seeks to explain the origins and popularity of enchantment in Shakespeare’s plays. Writers John Dryden and Joseph Addison originated the phrase the “fairy way of writing” to define the concept of an English creative imagination founded on a synthesis of high literary culture and the popular culture of tales and superstitions. Beginning with Chaucer, Johnson, Dryden, and Milton, Pask argues that the fairy way of writing not only sets the stage for the fairy tale, the Gothic novel, and children’s literature, but also informs genres beyond the English canon, including French fairy tales, painting, and twentieth-century fantasy fiction.

The Fairy Way of Writing alters the traditional sense of English literary history and of Shakespeare’s singular place in it, insisting on the importance of often-overlooked literary and visual works.

“Pask’s effort to bring the realm of fantasy into academic consideration alongside more standard canonical writing is no small achievement.” —Jonathan V. Crewe, Dartmouth College

PHILIPP JESERICH translated by Steven Rendall and Michael J. Curley Musica Naturalis delivers the first systematic account of speculative music theory as a discursive horizon for literary poetics. The title refers to the late medieval French poet Eustache Deschamps, whose 1392 treatise on verse writing, Art de Dictier, famously casts verse as “natural music” in explicit distinction to song, which Deschamps defines as “artificial.” Philipp Jeserich begins with Augustine and Boethius and traces the discourse of speculative music theory to the late fifteenth century, giving attention to medieval Latin and vernacular sources. By linking the significance of the speculative branch of medieval musicology to literary theory and literary production, Jeserich opens up a field of study that has been largely neglected.

Love triangles and Pythagorean women.

PYTHAGOREAN WOMEN Their History and Writings SARAH B. POMEROY In Pythagorean Women, classical scholar Sarah B. Pomeroy discusses the groundbreaking principles that Pythagoras established for family life in Archaic Greece, such as constituting a single standard of sexual conduct for women and men. Among the Pythagoreans, women played an important role and participated actively in the philosophical life. While Pythagoras encouraged women to be submissive to men, his reasoning was based on the desire to preserve harmony in the home.

Pythagorean Women provides English translations of all the earliest extant examples of literary Greek prose by Neopythagorean women, shedding light on their attitudes about marriage, the home, music, and the cosmos. Pomeroy’s book—which sets the Pythagorean and Neopythagorean women vividly in their historical, ecological, and intellectual contexts— is illustrated with original photographs of sites and artifacts known to these women.

“A book about Pythagorean women is sorely needed and long overdue.

A national survey of college students reveals connections between political opinion and popular culture.

HARRY POTTER AND THE MILLENNIALS Research Methods and the Politics of the Muggle Generation ANTHONY GIERZYNSKI with Kathryn Eddy Without a doubt, the Harry Potter series has had a powerful effect on the Millennial Generation. Millions of children grew up immersed in the world of the boy wizard—reading the books, dressing up in costume to attend midnight book release parties, watching the movies, even creating and competing in Quidditch tournaments. Beyond what we know of the popularity of the series, however, nothing has been published on the question of the Harry Potter effect on the politics of its young readers—now voting adults. Looking to engage his students in exploring the connections between political opinion and popular culture, Anthony Gierzynski conducted a national survey of more than 1,100 college students.

A comparative analysis of political websites and their users from seven Western democracies.

DIGITAL POLITICS IN WESTERN DEMOCRACIES A Comparative Study CRISTIAN VACCARI Digital politics is shorthand for how internet technologies have fueled the complex interactions between political actors and their constituents. Cristian Vaccari analyzes the presentation and consumption of online politics in seven advanced Western democracies—Australia, France, German, Italy, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States—from 2006 to 2010. His study not only refutes claims that the web creates homogenized American-style politics and political interaction but also empirically reveals how a nation’s constraints and opportunities create unique digital responses.

Digital Politics in Western Democracies is the first large-scale comparative treatment of both the supply and demand sides of digital politics among different countries and national political actors. It is divided into four parts: theoretical challenges and research methodology; how parties and candidates structure their websites (supply); how citizens use the websites to access campaign information (demand); and how the research results tie back to inequalities, engagement, and competition in digital politics. Because a key aspect of any political system is how its actors and citizens communicate, this book will be invaluable for scholars,

How poor decision making hurts U.S. national security.

NATIONAL SECURITY THROUGH A COCKEYED LENS How Cognitive Bias Impacts U.S. Foreign Policy STEVE A. YETIV “How do mental errors or cognitive biases undermine good decision making?” This is the question Steve A. Yetiv takes up in his latest foreign policy study, National Security through

a Cockeyed Lens . Yetiv draws on four decades of psychological, historical, and political science research on cognitive biases to illuminate some of the key pitfalls in our leaders’ decision-making processes and some of the mental errors we make in perceiving ourselves and the world. Tracing five U.S. national security episodes—the 1979 Soviet invasion and occupation of Afghanistan; the Iran-Contra affair during the Reagan administration; the rise of al-Qaeda, leading to the 9/11 attacks; the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq; and the development of U.S. energy policy—Yetiv reveals how a dozen cognitive biases have been more influential in impacting U.S. national security than commonly believed or understood. Identifying a primary bias in each episode—disconnect of perception versus reality; tunnel vision (“focus feature”); distorted perception (“cockeyed lens”); overconfidence; and short-term thinking—Yetiv explains how each bias drove the decision-making process and what the outcomes were for the various actors. His concluding chapter examines a range of debiasing techniques, exploring how they can improve decision making.

“Steve Yetiv is an expert in American foreign policy, security studies, and interdisciplinary approaches toward international politics. He is the ideal person to write this particular book, which applies political psychology to thestudy of decision processes.”—Patrick James, Dornsife Dean’s Professor of International Relations, University of Southern California 69

This collection of articles from the Journal of Democracy considers the prospects for democracy in China.

WILL CHINA DEMOCRATIZE? edited by ANDREW J. NATHAN, LARRY DIAMOND, and MARC F. PLATTNER While China has achieved extraordinary economic success as it has moved toward open markets and international trade, its leadership maintains its authoritarian grip, repressing political movements, controlling all internet traffic, and opposing any democratic activity. Because of its huge population, more than half the people in the world who lack political freedom live in China. Its undemocratic example is attractive to other authoritarian regimes. But can China continue its growth without political reform? In Will China Democratize?, Andrew J. Nathan, Larry Diamond, and Marc F. Plattner present valuable analysis for anyone interested in this significant yet perplexing question. Since the Journal of Democracy’s very first issue in January 1990, which featured articles reflecting on the then-recent Tiananmen Square massacre, the Journal has regularly published articles about China and its politics. By bringing together the wide spectrum of views that have appeared in the Journal’s pages—from contributors including Fang Lizhi,

Experts examine how innovation and technology are transforming China’s defense industry.

FORGING CHINA’S MILITARY MIGHT A New Framework for Assessing Innovation edited by TAI MING CHEUNG Among the most important issues in international security today are the nature and the global implications of China’s emergence as a world-class defense technology power. Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, the Chinese defense industry has reinvented itself by emphasizing technological innovation and technology. This reinvention and its potential effects, both positive and negative, are attracting intensifying global scrutiny. Drawing insights from a range of disciplines, including history, social science, business, and strategic studies, Tai Ming Cheung and the contributors to Forging China’s Military Might develop an analytical framework to evaluate the nature, dimensions, and spectrum of Chinese innovation in the military and broader defense spheres.

Forging China’s Military Might  provides an overview of the current state of the Chinese

How do armed groups operate simultaneously as violent actors with bullets and political candidates with ballots?

ARMED POLITICAL ORGANIZATIONS From Conflict to Integration BENEDETTA BERTI Many armed-political movements such as Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Irish Republican Army (IRA) have their roots in insurrection and rebellion. In Armed Political Organizations, Benedetta Berti seeks to understand when and why violent actors in a political organization choose to vote rather than bomb their way to legitimacy. Berti argues that the classic theory of the democratization process, which sees violence and elections at opposite ends of the political spectrum, is too simplistic and wholly inadequate for understanding the negotiation and disarmament work that is necessary for peaceful resolution of armed conflicts and movement toward electoral options. In this comparative study, she develops an alternative cyclical model that clarifies why armed groups create a political wing and compete in elections, and how this organizational choice impacts subsequent decisions to relinquish armed struggle. In her conclusion, Berti draws out what the implications are for a government’s ability to engage armed political groups to improve the chances of political integration. Berti’s innovative framework and careful choice of case studies, presented in a jargon-free, accessible style, will make this book attractive to not only scholars and students of democratization processes but also policymakers interested in conflict resolution and peacekeeping efforts.

“By focusing on a mix of internal organizational, political, and structural factors, Berti offers an informed and compelling explanation of the behavior of hybrid groups and counters the flawed argument that political participation necessarily moderates a group’s behavior.” —Daniel L. Byman, School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University 73

WILDLIFE DAMAGE MANAGEMENT Prevention, Problem Solving, and Conflict Resolution RUSSELL F. REIDINGER, JR., and JAMES E. MILLER

A complete guide to preventing and resolving problems associated with wildlife-human interactions.

Whether you are a student in a wildlife degree program or a professional wildlife biologist, you will find all the up-to-date information on wildlife damage in the pages of this clear, comprehensive text. Wildlife Damage Management includes pertinent biological and ecological concepts, management methods, and legal and political aspects. Experts on the topic, authors Russell F. Reidinger, Jr., and James E. Miller explain the evolution of wildlife damage management, differentiate fact from myth, and detail the principles and techniques with which a professional in the field should be familiar. They cover both plants and animals, North American as well as exotic invasive species, zoonotic diseases, damage to crops, livestock, and property, and threats to endangered or threatened fauna and flora. In recent years, the rate of unwanted human-wildlife interactions has risen in many areas, owing in part to the expansion of residences into places formerly wild or agricultural, making wildlife damage management even more relevant.

RUSSELL F. REIDINGER, JR., is a former Director, National Wildlife Research Center, USDA APHIS / Wildlife Services, and an adjunct professor in the Department of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at Lincoln University in Jefferson City, Missouri, and in the School of Natural Resources, University of Missouri, Columbia.

How adults can help children cope with routine and traumatic medical care.

A CLINICIAN’S GUIDE TO HELPING CHILDREN COPE AND COOPERATE WITH MEDICAL CARE An Applied Behavioral Approach KEITH J. SLIFER, PH.D. Keith J. Slifer, Ph.D., a pediatric psychologist at the Kennedy Krieger Institute and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, draws on practice and research to help health care practitioners provide better care for children with chronic conditions and children undergoing rehabilitation after traumatic injury or surgery. By better understanding the behavior, emotions, and developmental challenges of children, health care professionals in practice and in training can solve a range of problems, from getting a distressed child to cooperate with a physical examination or diagnostic test, to teaching a child to adhere to medical self-care.

A thorough collection of classic and contemporary resources about the placebo effect.

THE PLACEBO A Reader edited by FRANKLIN G. MILLER, LUANA COLLOCA, ROBERT A. CROUCH, and TED J. KAPTCHUK The placebo effect is a fascinating but elusive phenomena. Although no standard definition of the placebo effect exists, it is generally understood as consisting of responses of individuals to the psychosocial context of medical treatments or clinical encounters, as distinct from specific physiological effects of medical interventions. The Placebo is the first book to compile a selection of classic and contemporary published articles on the topic. Systematic investigation of the placebo effect emerged in the 1950s in response to the development of randomized controlled clinical trials that used “inert” placebo interventions as a pivotal element of scientific evaluation of novel drugs. The Placebo is organized into three sections: the nature and significance of the placebo effect, experimental studies of the placebo effect, and ethical issues of placebos in research and in clinical practice. This comprehensive sourcebook will be invaluable to investigators and scholars alike.

FRANKLIN G. MILLER is a member of the senior faculty in the Department of Bioethics at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and a special expert at the National Institute of Mental Health Intramural Research Program.

REDUCING GUN VIOLENCE IN AMERICA Informing Policy with Evidence and Analysis edited by DANIEL W. WEBSTER and JON S. VERNICK foreword by Michael R. Bloomberg The staggering toll of gun violence—which claims 31,000 U.S. lives each year—is an urgent public health issue that demands an effective evidence-based policy response. The Johns Hopkins University convened more than 20 of the world’s leading experts on gun violence and policy to summarize relevant research and recommend policies that are both constitutional and have broad public support. Collected for the first time in one volume, this reliable, empirical research and legal analysis will help lawmakers, opinion leaders, and concerned citizens identify policy changes to address mass shootings, along with the less-publicized gun violence that takes an average of 80 lives every day.

DANIEL W. WEBSTER, ScD, MPH, is a professor of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, where he serves as Director of the Center for Gun Policy and Research, Deputy Director of Research

The book includes an analysis of the constitutionality of many recommended policies and data from a national public opinion poll that reflects support among the majority of Americans—including gun owners—for stronger gun policies.

“The rate of firearms homicides in America is 20 times higher than it is in other economically advanced nations. We have got to change that.”
