Henri Lefebvre And Beyond By Angela D’Ascoli Public spaces have been and still are the central topic of countless numbers of studies. The purpose of the volume is to spark debate, by staking out, through Henri Lefebvre, an alternative vision of public space centred on the peculiar local rhythms of rural areas and geared towards figuring out the complexity non-metropolitan frameworks can show.

REDUCING BOUNDARIES

Understanding Exclusion Through Security Defensive Systems in Wealthy Urban Areas Edited by Emanuela Bonini Lessing, Fabio Vanin and Daniel Achutti The book gives an account of the results of a four-year international project funded by the European Research Agency. While studies have mainly focused on poor and low-middle classes evicted from urban space, Reducing Boundaries considers the way in which the upper-middle classes configure as a goal the preservation of their own security and the ensuing strategies they put in action in order to achieve it.

UNLIMIT

Rethinking The Boundaries Between Philosophy, Aesthetics And Arts Edited by Greg Bird, Daniela Calabrò and Dario Giugliano To rethink boundaries we need to reshape our current idea of Europe and the Mediterranean. Only from such a reconsideration can the foundations for the construction of a real and different European identity be laid. This book explores whether the knowledge and cultural values of the Mediterranean can be the driving force able to overcome the impasse from which Europe cannot free itself.

Furthermore, the magazine is aimed at those who observe architecture from an unusual visual perspective, from domains and fields of research that intertwine the different ways we experience the everyday built environment.

Reinventing the Alliance in the 1960s By Marc Dollinger

How American Jews leveraged the Black Power movement to strengthen American Jewish life. This provocative critique charts the transformation of American Jewish political culture from the Cold War liberal consensus of the early postwar years to the rise and influence of Black Power–inspired ethnic nationalism. It shows how, in a period best known for the rise of black anti-Semitism and the breakdown of the black-Jewish alliance, black nationalists enabled Jewish activists to devise a new Judeo-centered political agenda and express it in more visible forms of Jewish identity

An annual repository for leading-edge research in the New Testament and related texts, and the historical development which the texts imply. It has a central focus on the methodology of text-based historical research. Although Christian history has been seen as fully realized in Paul, many of the New Testament texts give hints of a pre-Pauline Christianity. The work in these volumes leads to an unexpectedly full picture of that pattern of early belief and practice, allowing the study of ‘Alpha Christianity’.

Human And Animal Representations Edited by Mariaelisa Dimino, Alessia Polatti and Roberta Zanoni This edited collection intends to contribute to the present debate on Animal Studies by focusing on literary texts and discursive practices which reveal the epistemological and cultural dynamics that structure the representation of the animal. The humananimal relationship has always been characterized by a wide net of interactions and exchanges: the aim of the book is to rethink the very nature of animality.

Testing A New Paradigm Edited by Tonino Griffero and Giampiero Moretti An interdisciplinary analysis of the concept of atmospheres.

It provides a point of reference for everyone who is dealing with this subject matter from a phenomenological and/or aesthetic point of view; there is no other platform that attempts to collect and gather all news, events and publications on the subject.

COSMOPOLITANISM AS AN ANSWER: KANT’S PHILOSOPHY OF HISTORY By Sandra Zákutná

A source for students of political philosophy or Kant’s practical philosophy. Focuses on Kant’s philosophy of history as a part of his practical philosophy, including his project of cosmopolitanism as the culmination of his philosophy of history. Kant’s effort to introduce a model which would guarantee perpetual peace is studied from various perspectives and the book deals with the philosopher’s inspirational impulses stemming from 18th century European thought as well as with contemporary philosophical thinking in the field of cosmopolitanism showing the topicality of the idea of Kant’s cosmopolitanism, in today’s world.

RELATIONS

Ontology And Philosophy Of Religion Edited by Daniele Bertini and Damiano Migliorini Relations at the crossing between epistemology, ontology and religious studies. In 1924, B. Russell claimed the crucial importance of relationships to our understanding of many unresolved philosophical problems. Such observation is more than fundamental for the contemporary philosophical agenda: ontology, philosophy of religion and several other theoretical fields require an explanation for the very nature of what a relationship is and how it works. Collecting several contributions on the very meaning of relations, the volume aims to expand the international debate in the field from a philosophical perspective.

EPICURUS’S PHARMACY By Diego Fusaro

A new reflection on one of the most important Greek philosophers, the founder of Epicureanism. Epicurus still has much to say, even today, when people are affected more than ever in their minds by evils, as Fusaro outstandingly shows in this book. It explores the duplicity which animates Epicurus’ philosophy, and the inversion of the traditional relation between man and cosmos, and between theory and practice.

BLESSINGS FROM BEIJING

In the sixties and seventies, the public sphere in Western countries was a place of critique. Through activism in the public sphere, various social movements democratised institutions and political culture. Today, neoliberal politics and populist movements have transformed this place into a perilous arena, hosting many serious threats to democracy. This book explores the possible outcome of this challenge and confrontation.

It’s a celestial map to social interaction and the failure of connection, a crafted examination of the distortions of religion and piety. Here we, the reader, visit nonsense, pathos, violence, and the flights of fancy of human coexistence.

A peace treaty in the form of several soliloquies that, taken together, read like an obituary for an age that has never come. The result articulates a confluence of humanities.

POETRY

SURGE By Etel Adnan “Etel Adnan is one of the greatest artists of our time, and a great inspiration to many artists. For over sixty years – as a painter, poet and the maker of exquisite tapestries – Adnan’s work has been underpinned by an intense engagement with the world and with modern history.” – Hans Ulrich Obrist

DON’T LET THEM SEE ME LIKE THIS By Jasmine Gibson Explores myriad intersectional identities in relation to The State, disease, love, sex, failure, and triumph, speaking to those who feel inspired/informed by moments of political crisis. Nightboat Books August 2018 9781937658830 • £16.00 • PB 229 x 152mm • 96 pages

A new volume of prose and philosophical poetry from Etel Adnan, whose work The New York Times described as the “meditative heir to Nietzsche’s aphorisms, Rilke’s Book of Hours and the verses of Sufi mysticism.”

SHADOW-FEAST By Joan Houlihan

REST By Margaree Little

BEAUTY REFRACTED By Carol Moldaw

Shadow-feast is a chronicle of dying – the awareness, denial, pain, and hope surrounding incurable illness, as well as the aftermath of grief as told from three points of view: Hers, His, and Theirs (the couple).

A vivid, powerful collection examining the human cost of crossing the border; an elegiac series of poems commemorating an imagined, unknown life.

A stunning tapestry of the ways we are marked by time. From the grief of losing a parent to the experience of raising a child, Moldaw peels back the veil of the everyday to discover the passions underneath.

THREAT COME CLOSE By Aaron Coleman

CENTURY WORM By Todd Fredson

TRILOGY By Doreen Gildroy

In his debut Coleman writes an American anthem for the 21st century, composed of pain, faith, lust and vulnerability. It interrogates the meaning of home and identity for a black man in America.

Century Worm confronts the impact of Western colonial policies and the sundering of nostalgia as the collection’s speaker recalls living amid ethnic and political violence in West Africa’s Ivory Coast.

Three related books as a single work. The first is about a child’s serious illness and fear of mortal danger. The second is about grief, and the third is about writing and poetry as the means to discovering authenticity.

POETRY

OIL SPELL By Claire Marie Stancek

SUBTERRANEAN By Richard Greenfield

GHOST OF By Diana Khoi Nguyen

Gathers today’s dark energies – US drone strikes, environmental disaster – and asks: what kind of tool is poetry to mirror these violences?

The elegies that comprise Richard Greenfield’s third book of poems, Subterranean, open the rhetoric of the form in new ways, creating a site of grieving that transcends a focus on the death of the father.

A mourning song, not an exorcism or un-haunting of that which haunts, but attuned a t te n t i o n , u n i d i re c t i o n a l reaching across time, space, and distance to reach loved ones, ancestors, and strangers.

LIVE AT THE BITTER END By Ed Pavli

SOFT VOLCANO By Libby Burton

Puts the racialized logic of 20th century aesthetics on trial. Adhering to the structure of a murder trial, it bears lyrical witness to racial separation, masquerade, mongrelization, and communion.

At the core of Libby Burton’s highly anticipated debut poetry collection are the vivid details underpinning the relationships we hold dearly in our lives.

LAST CITY By Brian Sneeden

Continues Peter Cooley’s search for the “ordinary miraculous,” the subject of his books for four decades. The gods are near at hand and far from us in Cooley’s new poems.

In his debut collection, Brian Sneeden presents poetry that invokes scenes from the Greek islands, the loam-clotted fields of the antebellum South, and the city which emerges from the filaments of loss.

POETRY

BLACK SEA By David Yezzi

BIG WINDOWS By Lauren Moseley

IMMORTAL VILLAGE By Kathryn Rhett

David Yezzi’s fourth book of poems considers what it’s like, during times of roiling change, to feel like a stranger on one’s own street and in one’s own country, partly geographic, partly psychic.

In this stunning debut collection, Lauren Moseley’s poems move through real and imagined landscapes, navigating the borders between doubt, fear, wonder, and empowerment.

Immortal Village is a poetry collection about wildness versus domesticity, about desire set against the civilizing structures of myth, marriage, school, and village.
