COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS CCSS or CCSS meet or exceed the reading criteria of the Common Core Titles marked in this catalog EXEMPLAR

State Standards (Appendix B) for high-quality, complex texts in a wide range of formats that develop high school students’ language skills and conceptual knowledge. For more information about Common Core State Standards, go to www.corestandards.org.

Why CCSS Matters for College Courses: “Higher education attainment is an ultimate goal of the Common Core standards, which aim to make sure students are ‘college and career-ready’ by the end of high school. . . . If the Common Core is implemented as advocates intend, its effects would significantly alter how many things work in higher education too. . . . [Transforming] dual enrollment programs, placement tests, and remediation. They could force colleges within state systems, and even across states, to agree on what it means to be ‘college ready,’ and to work alongside K–12 to help students who are unprepared for college before they graduate from high school. In the long run, it could force changes in credit-bearing courses too, to better align with what students are supposed to have mastered by high school graduation.” —Libby A. Nelson,“Common Core Curriculum for K–12 Could Have Far-reaching Effects on Higher Education”(5/3/2013) Inside Higher Ed. (tiny.cc/vhrwxw)

LITERATURE. LuCkY JIM By kinsley Amis • Introduction by Keith Gessen This is the story of Jim Dixon, a hapless lecturer in medieval history at a provincial university. Kingsley Amis’s scabrous debut leads the reader through a gallery of emphatically English bores, cranks, frauds, and neurotics with whom Dixon must contend in one way or another in order to hold on to his cushy academic perch and win the girl of his fancy. More than just a merciless satire of cloistered college life and stuffy postwar manners, Lucky Jim is an attack on the forces of boredom. “Remarkable for its relentless skewering of artifice and pretension, Lucky Jim also contains some of the finest comic set pieces in the language.” —Olivia Laing, The Observer NYRB Classics: TR • 978-1-59017-575-0 • 296pp. • $14.95/NCR • Exam Copy: $3.00 e-Book: 978-1-59017-591-0 • $14.95/NCR

HOW TO LIVE Or a Lie o Montaine in One Qestion and Tenty Attempts at an Anser By Sarah Baeell Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography How do you live? This question obsessed Renaissance writers, none more than Montaigne. He wrote explorations of his thoughts and experience unlike anything written before. More than 400 years later, Montaigne’s honesty and charm still draw people to his work. Readers come to Montaigne in search of companionship, wisdom, and entertainment—and in search of themselves. They will be similarly drawn to this spirited and singular biography. “Extraordinary . . . a miracle of complex, revelatory organization, for as Bakewell moves along she provides a brilliant demonstration of the alchemy of historical viewpoint.” —Boston Globe Other Press: TR • 978-1-59051-483-2 • 416pp. • $16.95/NCR • Exam Copy: $3.00 e-Book: 978-1-59051-426-9 • $15.95/NCR www.sarahbakewell.com

THE wASTE LAND AND OTHER wRITINgS By T. S. Eliot • Introduction by Mary Karr First published in 1922, “The Waste Land” is T. S. Eliot’s masterpiece, and is not only one of the key works of modernism, but also one of the greatest poetic achievements of the twentieth century. A richly allusive pilgrimage of spiritual and psychological torment and redemption, Eliot’s poem exerted a revolutionary influence on his contemporaries, summoning forth a rich new poetic language, breaking decisively with Romantic and Victorian poetic traditions. In her new Introduction, Mary Karr dispels some of the myths of the great poem’s inaccessibility and sheds fresh light on the ways in which “The Waste Land” illuminates contemporary experience.

Arthur’s legacy falls to his widow, Martha, and their children, the fragile Rachel and Luke, reluctantly immortalized as the fictional Luke Hayseed, hero of his father’s books. “Mr. Toppit is a darkly comic, thoroughly engaging narrative about a successful writer and the complicated legacy he leaves to his wife and children, and to the world at large.

TEN PLAYS By Eripides • Translated by Moses Hadas and John McLean Introduction by Moses Hadas The first playwright of democracy, Euripides wrote with enduring insight and biting satire about social and political problems of Athenian life. In contrast to his contemporaries, he brought an exciting—and, to the Greeks, a stunning—realism to the “pure and noble form” of tragedy. For the first time in history, heroes and heroines on the stage were not idealized. As Sophocles said, “Euripides shows people not as they ought to be, but as they actually are.”

ENGLISH

Considered by George Bernard Shaw to be the greatest of the Greek dramatists, Euripides is now regarded by many as the originator of the dramatic sensibility that developed into what we call “modern” European drama.

LITERATURE. DREAMINg IN CuBAN: A Novel By Cristina garcía Here is the dreamy and bittersweet story of a family divided by politics and geography during the Cuban revolution. It is the family story of Celia del Pino—and her husband, daughter and grandchildren—from the mid-1930s to 1980s. Celia’s story mirrors the magical realism of Cuba itself, a country of beauty and poverty, idealism and corruption. “Dreaming in Cuban is written in language that is by turns languid and sensual, curt and surprising. García has distilled a new tongue from scraps salvaged through upheaval.” —The New York Times Book Review Ballantine: TR • 978-0-345-38143-9 • 272pp. • $15.00/$18.00 Can. • Exam Copy: $3.00 • e-Book: 978-0-307-79800-8 • $11.99/$13.99 Can.

THE MIRADOR: Dreamed Memories o Irène Némirosy by Her Dahter By Élisabeth gille • Translated by Marina Harss Élisabeth Gille was only five years old when her mother, Irène Némirovksy, the author of Suite Française, died in Aushwitz. In 1992, Gille published this fictionalized autobiography of her mother, who had led a sparkling life in Paris as one of the most successful and prolific European writers of the 1930s before being arrested as a Jew led to her death in 1942. As fully and deeply imagined as Némirovksy’s novels, The Mirador will prove indispensable to devotees of Gille’s nearly forgotten mother, who is brought back to life by Gille’s graceful words.

MAIN STREET By Sinclair Leis The first of his major novels of the 1920s, Sinclair Lewis’s Main Street satirizes the manners of the American Midwest. Here is the story of Carol Kennicott, who, to be accepted, must adapt to the ways of Gopher Prairie, Minnesota. Lewis’s portrayal of a marriage torn by disillusionment and a woman forced into compromises is at once devastating social satire and persuasive realism. This groundbreaking novel attacks conformism, commercialism, moneygrubbing, and the decline in what Lewis saw as the American ideals of freedom and respect for individuality.

SNOwBALL’S CHANCE By John Reed • foreord by Aleander Cocbrn • Aterord by James Sherry Written in 14 days shortly after the September 11th attacks, Snowball’s Chance is an outrageous and unauthorized companion to George Orwell’s Animal Farm, in which exiled pig Snowball returns to the farm, takes charge, and implements a new world order of untrammeled capitalism. Orwell’s “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” has morphed into the new rallying cry: “All animals are born equal—what they become is their own affair.”

ENGLISH

A timely political satire and literary parody, John Reed’s Snowball’s Chance has caused controversy since its publication in 2002. Now, a decade later, with America in wars on many fronts, readers can judge anew the visionary truth of Reed’s satirical masterpiece.

ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT: A Novel By Erich Maria Remarqe • Translated by Arthur Wesley Wheen Considered by many the greatest war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front is Erich Maria Remarque’s masterpiece about the German experience during World War I. Paul Baumer enlisted with his classmates in the German army of World War I. Youthful, and enthusiastic, they become soldiers. But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches. And as horrible war plods on year after year, Paul holds fast to a single vow: to fight against the principles of hate that meaninglessly pit young men of the same generation but different uniforms against each other—if only he can come out of the war alive. This is the classic anti-war novel about young German soldiers during World War I. Few books have achieved such dramatic acclaim or enduring success.

THE MOUNTAIN LION By Jean Staord • Aterord by kathryn Dais Two kids growing up in a genteel suburb of Los Angeles, Ralph and his younger sister, Molly, are independent-minded, highly imaginative, and more than a little wild. They have no patience with the evasive politeness and mincing words of their mother and older sisters, so they’re delighted when they’re sent for the summer to the Colorado mountain ranch of their uncle Claude. Initially, the children feel liberated by this encounter with nature at its most ruggedly spectacular and demanding. Soon, however, Ralph begins to sense, not without anxiety, the call and challenge of impending manhood, while Molly, for her part, burns both with the ambition of becoming a writer and the fear of being left behind in childhood. Neither suspects that tragedy may be the cost of coming of age. NYRB Classics: TR • 978-1-59017-352-7 • 248pp. • $14.95/$17.95 Can. • Exam Copy: $3.00

Less common was that she returned six years later to reclaim her children. Rather than leading to a happy ending, though, this is where Stringer’s story begins. The clash of being poor and black in an affluent, largely white New York suburb begins to foment pain and rage, which erupts, more often than not, when he is at school. One violent episode results in his expulsion from the sixth grade and his subsequent three-year stint at Hawthorne, the “Sleepaway School” of the title.

THE MAN THAT CORRuPTED HADLEYBuRg By Mar Tain Written on hotel stationery while Mark Twain was in Europe on the run from American creditors, soon after the death of a daughter, The Man that Corrupted Hadleyburg is often cited as a work of bitter cynicism—a statement on America, to some; on the Dreyfus Case, to others—created by a weary author at the end of his career. The story of a mysterious stranger who orchestrates a fraud embarrassing the hypocritical citizens of “incorruptible” Hadleyburg, this novella is an exceptionally crafted work intertwining a devious and suspenseful plot with some of the wittiest dialogue Twain ever wrote. This brilliant novella is a complex and compassionate consideration of the human character by a master at the height of his form.

THE MYSTERIOuS STRANgER By Mar Tain The Mysterious Stranger, published posthumously in 1916, is Mark Twain’s final work and very much belonging to his “dark” period, which belies the popular image of the affable American humorist. A teenage stranger named Satan visits the remote Austrian village Eseldorf and informs a group of teens that misfortune is about to befall their families. This starts a series of events that lead the village into mayhem. In this antireligious tale, Twain denies the existence of a benign Providence, a soul, an afterlife, and even reality itself. As the Stranger in the story asserts, “nothing exists; all is a dream.” Prometheus: TR • 978-1-57392-039-1 • 121pp. • $11.99/$13.00 Can. • Exam Copy: $3.00

What began as a series of ninety-second radio interludes for WNYC, New York City’s public radio station, evolved into this provocative collection of musings about who and what we live for, and how much it all matters in the end.

LAW IN AMERICA: A Short History By Larence M. friedman Throughout America’s history, our laws have been a reflection of who we are, of what we value, of who has control. They embody our society’s genetic code. In the masterful hands of Lawrence M. Friedman, the story of the evolution of our laws serves to lay bare the deciding struggles over power and justice that have shaped this country from its birth pangs to the present. Law in America is a supreme example of the historian’s art, its brevity a testament to the great elegance and wit of its composition. “[A] concise and lucid overview of the development of the law as it parallels the track of American social, economic, political, and cultural history.”—Booklist Modern Library: TR • 978-0-8129-7285-6 • 224pp. • $15.00/$17.00 Can. • Exam Copy: $3.00 e-Book: 978-1-58836-250-6 • $11.99/$12.99 Can.

UNITED STATES HISTORY wHY wE CAN’T wAIT By Martin Lther kin, Jr. • Introdction by Dorothy Cotton

HISTORY & SOCIAL SCIENCE

In 1963, Birmingham, Alabama, was perhaps the most racially segregated city in the United States, but the campaign launched by Fred Shuttlesworth, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and others demonstrated to the world the power of nonviolent direct action. Often applauded as King’s most incisive and eloquent book, Why We Can’t Wait recounts the Birmingham campaign in vivid detail, while underscoring why 1963 was such a crucial year for the civil rights movement. King examines the history of the civil rights struggle and the tasks that future generations must accomplish to bring about full equality. “No child should graduate from high school without having read this book. In telling the story of the third American Revolution, it is as integral to American history as the Declaration of Independence.” —Jesse Jackson

Sugrue’s panoramic view sweeps from the 1920s to the present—more than eighty of the most decisive years in American history. “Mention the civil rights movement and Birmingham, Selma, and Memphis spring to mind. Rarely do we recall Boston, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland. But there was a civil rights movement in the North, Thomas J.

UNITED STATES HISTORY THE REBELLIOuS LIfE Of MRS. ROSA PARkS By Jeanne Theoharis

HISTORY & SOCIAL SCIENCE

The definitive political biography of Rosa Parks examines her six decades of activism, challenging perceptions of her as an accidental actor in the civil rights movement. Presenting a corrective to the popular notion of Rosa Parks as the quiet seamstress who, with a single act, birthed the modern civil rights movement, Theoharis provides a revealing window into Parks’s politics and years of activism. She shows readers how this civil rights movement radical sought—for more than a half a century—to expose and eradicate the American racial-caste system in jobs, schools, public services, and criminal justice. “Historian Theoharis offers a complex portrait of a forceful, determined woman who had long been active before the boycott she inspired and who had an even longer career in civil rights afterward.” —Booklist

EUROPEAN HISTORY NAZISM AND wAR By Richard Bessel The Second World War was the defining event of the twentieth century, leaving millions dead and redrawing the political map in ways that continue to affect nearly the entire human race. Unlike previous territorial or political clashes, the war launched by Nazi Germany was an ideological one, waged to wipe entire peoples and cultures from the face of the earth. In Nazism and War, Richard Bessel, one of the preeminent authorities on the social and political history of modern Germany, demonstrates how racial hatred was the driving force behind—and not a by-product of—Nazism. “Bessel’s basic premise—that wars past present, and future were at least as central to the Nazi ethos as racism—is an illuminating one, correcting many a crude caricature. . . . Clear, engaging, and quietly profound.” —Booklist Modern Library: TR • 978-0-8129-7557-4 • 320pp. • $15.00/ $17.00 Can. • Exam Copy: $3.00 e-Book: 978-0-307-55852-7 • $11.99/$13.99 Can.

WORLD HISTORY ISLAM: A Short History By karen Armstron No religion in the modern world is as feared and misunderstood as Islam. It haunts the popular Western imagination as an extreme faith that promotes authoritarian government, female oppression, civil war, and terrorism. Karen Armstrong’s short history offers a vital corrective to this narrow view. The distillation of years of thinking and writing about Islam, it demonstrates that the world’s fastestgrowing faith is a much richer and more complex phenomenon than its modern fundamentalist strain might suggest. “A valuable corrective to the hostile caricatures of Islam that circulate in the English-speaking world. . . .

WORLD HISTORY DANgEROuS gAMES: The Uses and Abuses of History By Mararet MacMillan History is useful when it is used properly: to understand why we and those we must deal with think and react in certain ways. It can offer examples to inform our decisions and guesses about the consequences of our actions. But we should be wary of looking to history for dogmatic lessons. We should distrust those who abuse history when they call on it to justify unreasonable claims to land, for example, or restitution. Acclaimed historian Margaret MacMillan illustrates how dangerous history can be in the hands of nationalistic or religious or ethnic leaders who use it to foster a sense of grievance and a desire for revenge.

There are more starving people in the world than ever before, while there are also more people who are overweight. To find out how we got to this point and what we can do about it, Raj Patel launched a comprehensive investigation into the global food network. What he found was shocking, from the false choices given us by supermarkets to a global epidemic of farmer suicides, and real reasons for famine in Asia and Africa. Yet he also found great cause for hope—in international resistance movements working to create a more democratic, sustainable, and joyful food system. “Patel’s broad treatment helps the layman connect the dots, as well as hear the voices of those who occupy the lower rungs of the global food chain.” —Time Magazine Melville House: TR • 978-1-6121-9127-0 • 432pp. • $19.95/NCR • Exam Copy: $3.00 • e-Book: 978-1-61219-128-7 • $19.95/NCR www.rajpatel.org

Samelson With the financial upheavals over the last years, The Great Inflation and Its Aftermath is more relevant now than ever before.

MATH & COMPUTER SCIENCE fLATLAND: A Romance o Many Dimensions By Edin A. Abbott This highly original and entertaining short novel tells the story of A. Square, an inhabitant of the twodimensional world Flatland. After an overview of Flatland society, A. Square recounts how he was led on a series of travels to Pointland, Lineland, and Spaceland. Through his encounters with these other lands, A. Square realizes that there is more to the universe than the world he lives in. Victorian clergyman and Shakespearean scholar Edwin A. Abbott penned this mathematical allegory about the dawn of reason. Touching on themes of humanity’s insatiable quest for truth, authority’s tendency to squash radical ideas born from this quest, and the necessity of curiosity, Flatland is an odd and charming little book whose impact far surpasses its concise prose.

For example: Cleopatra used saffron— a source of the color yellow—for seduction; extracted from an Afghan mine, the blue “ultramarine” paint used by Michelangelo was so expensive he couldn’t afford to buy it himself; and since ancient times, carmine red—still found in lipsticks and Cherry Coke today—has come from the blood of insects.

RENAISSANCE ART IN FRANCE: The Invention of Classicism By Henri Zerner Harvard professor Henri Zerner focuses on one of the most dynamic and flamboyant periods in art history, the Renaissance in France. Renaissance Art in France explains how the school of Fontainebleau, in its exaggerated elegance and complex fantasies, combined French forms of medieval origin with the Italianate decorative style. It quickly came to represent a high point in the development of Mannerism and laid the groundwork for the invention of French Classicism. The volume showcases artists who excelled in the fine arts such as court portraitist François Clouet and sculptor Jean Goujon, as well as those working in decorative arts that also flourished during this period: tapestry, stained-glass windows, printmaking, and metalwork.
