Black Diasporic Worlds: Origins and Evolutions from New World Slaving

Series Editors: Antonio D. Tillis and Elizabeth J. West

Email: Antonio.D.Tillis@Dartmouth.edu , EWest@gsu.edu

 

In his introduction to the 2003 Princeton UP English language edition of Erich Auerbach's 1946 still influential study, Mimesis: The Representation of Reality in Western Literature, Edward Said explains that the evolutionary relation between the Old and New Testament exemplifies how "like interpretation itself . . . history does not only move forward but also backward, in each oscillation between eras managing to accomplish a greater realism, a more substantial 'thickness' (to use a term from current anthropological description), a higher degree of truth" (xxi).  Said's assertion of the importance of Mimesis for its contribution to understanding western literature (and by extension, a view of the world through the prism of western myth making) captures the spirit of this scholarly series.  

Black Diasporic Worlds is a humanities series whose publications highlight the transnational Africana experience that has resulted from and/or emerged alongside European exploits in the Americas. The title also implies ways in which the Africana people have informed their experiences, their nationalistic and racial orientations, and in turn how their presence and histories have helped to shape the western world on both sides of the Atlantic. With regard to geographical scope, publications in this series will thus include works focusing on blacks in the Americas (this includes Canada, the Caribbean, Mexico, Central and South America), and also blacks in Europe (for example, Afro-British, Afro-German, Francophone), and could conceivably extend to the experiences of blacks beyond the western world whose destinies have been shaped by the legacy or spill over of new world slaving (for instance, black migrations across Africa and the Middle East in response to the trans-Atlantic slave market).

Publications in the Black Diasporic Worlds series will focus on African derived people, populations, cultures, and civilizations resulting from the economic and political dynamics of new world slaving and its aftermath. It will represent works that query the transcultural and transnational understandings of contemporary articulation and impact of “Africana” in Europe and other geographies outside of the Americas. Of particular interest are manuscripts on Africana migration narratives, the Africana body as text, cross-cultural narratives in the Africana world, neo-historiographies of the Africana experience, slavery in the Africana world, to name a few. While we are primarily a monograph series, we will publish an annual edited collection that consists of critical scholarship by leading and emerging scholars and topics in the field.

 

Studies in Modern Tibetan Culture

Series Editor: Gray Tuttle

 

The Studies in Modern Tibetan Culture series focuses on Tibetan culture and society from the early modern period of the seventeenth century to the present. The first series on modern Tibetan studies by a scholarly press, it explores how modernity manifests in a wide range of fields, not only religion, but also literature, history, economy, anthropology, media, and politics. It seeks to bring rarely heard and important Tibetan perspectives to a wider audience by publishing fresh analyses of yet unexplored source materials ranging from census and yearbook databases to auto/biographies and ethnographic fieldwork, as well as original translations of poetry, biography, and history.

AsiaWorld

Series Editor: Mark Selden

Email: mark@markselden.info

 

This series charts the frontiers of Asia in global perspective. Central to its concerns are Asian interactions—political, economic, social, cultural, and historical—that are transnational and global, that cross and redefine borders and networks, including those of nation, region, ethnicity, gender, technology, and demography. It looks to multiple methodologies to chart the dynamics of a region that has been the home to major civilizations and is central to global processes of war, peace, and development in the new millennium.

Emerging Perspectives on Education in China

Series Editor: Gerard A. Postiglione

Email: gerry.hku@gmail.com

 

China's economic rise continues to transform its education system and drive an unprecedented expansion of educational opportunities. Meanwhile, China struggles with innumerable challenges: glaring inequalities in school access across social groups; widespread irregularities in educational financing; and declining ideological vitality at a time when schooling is being called on to stabilize an increasingly restive society. The education system is expected to reproduce a social order that can support a massive manufacturing economy, while producing innovative thinkers for a knowledge economy. While it espouses the values of socialism, it promotes private schools and universities. The demand for higher education grows while the labor market fails to absorb each year's university graduates. On top of this, overseas study continues to have global implications. Not only do science and technology industries in developed countries increasingly rely on China’s postgraduate talent, but overseas students and scholars in the social sciences and humanities have spawned an intellectual renaissance. As the work of young scholars becomes accessible in English to the larger global community, myths are replaced by empirically based analyses of China's complex and fascinatingly educational transformation. This series, Emerging Perspectives on Education in China, presents the work of young scholars who demonstrate a determination to explore emerging educational issues through field based empirical research and sophisticated analyses.

The Africana Experience and Critical Leadership Studies

Series Editor: Abul Pitre and Comfort Okpala

Email: Abul Pitre at abulpitre@yahoo.com

 

The Africana Experience and Critical Leadership Studies is a book series that explores through interdisciplinary scholarship the experiences of people of African descent in the U.S. and abroad. The series covers a wide range of areas to include but not limited to the following: history, political science, education, science, health care, sociology, cultural studies, religious studies, psychology, hip-hop, anthropology, literature, and leadership studies. With the addition of leadership studies the series breaks new ground as there is a dearth of scholarship in leadership studies as it relates to the Africana experience. The critical leadership studies component of the series allows for critical leadership discourse in the Africana experience that is interdisciplinary offering scholars an outlet to produce new scholarship that is engaging, innovative, and transformative. Scholars across disciplines are invited to submit their manuscripts for review in this timely series that seeks to provide cutting edge knowledge that can address the societal challenges facing Africana communities.

Communication, Globalization and Cultural Identity

Series Editor: Jan Servaes, 9cssc9@gmail.com

 

This series will explore and complicate the interlinked notions of local and global, by integrating global dependency thinking, world-system theory and local, grassroots, interpretative, participatory theory, and research on social change. In the current world state, globalization and localization are seen as interlinked processes and this marks a radical change in thinking about change and development. It could integrate macro- and micro-theory. It also marks the arising of a new range of problems. One of the central problems is that the link between the global and the local is not always made clear.

 

The debates in the general field of international and intercultural communication have shifted and broadened. They have shifted in the sense that they are now focusing on issues related to global culture, local culture, (post)modernity and multiculturalism instead of their previous concern with modernization, synchronization and cultural imperialism. With these new discussions, the debates have also shifted from an emphasis on homogeneity towards an emphasis on differences. With this shift towards differences and localities there is also an increased interest in the link between the global and the local and in how the global is perceived in the local. This series invites manuscripts which address the above changes, either from global or local perspectives.

 

The Peoples of ‘Latin’ America and the Caribbean: A Series Focusing on Indigenous Peoples and Ethnic Minorities

Series Editor: Martin Edwin Andersen

Contact: martinedwinandersen@gmail.com

 

By means of monographs and edited collections, Lexington Books publishes new research on understudied aspects of both the history of and contemporary affairs affecting indigenous peoples and other minority populations in Central and South America and the Caribbean. Although a new specific effort, this initiative for thinking globally/historically builds upon already-published Lexington works on the recent past and current affairs, and intends to become a comprehensive resource and established publication series. Lexington’s “The Peoples of ‘Latin’ America and the Caribbean” seeks to ensure a space is made to systematically analyze important qualitative and quantitative aspects of the transformation affecting the peoples of the region.

An outlet for empirical research on a broad variety of themes, issues of specific interest that too often remain either under the radar or on the sideline of mainstream publishing include: ethnonationalism; Colonialism and Empire; identity, race, ethnicity, mixed heritages; political radicalization; religion; intersections of indigeneity, stress, poverty, and/or organized crime; comparative studies with indigenous peoples from outside the region; local and urban histories; cultural innovation, indigenous knowledge, and intellectual property rights; ethnic geography (including the diaspora); contested memory; heritage preservation; law; etc.

Proposals for research monographs, edited collections and, where appropriate, doctoral theses will be considered for publication. Lexington is also open for a limited number of proposals of re-publications of seminal, but not widely available works and translation projects, particularly those presented in trans-disciplinary or interdisciplinary fashion. When emailing, please copy proposal into email and do not send as an attachment.

Heterodox Studies in the Critique of Political Economy   

Series Editor: Andrew Kliman

Editorial Board: Alan Freeman, London Metropolitan University

Seongjin Jeong, Gyeongsang National University

Nick Potts, Southampton Solent University

 

The outbreak of the global economic crisis in 2007 has led to renewed discussion of heterodox economics and Karl Marx’s contributions. Heterodox Studies in the Critique of Political Economy contributes to and seeks to broaden the focus of these discussions. It welcomes proposals from authors working within various heterodox traditions. Contributions to the critique of political economy in the tradition founded by Marx are strongly encouraged, as are other marginalized voices and perspectives. Thus, non-academics, scholars from Asia and the global South, and proponents of perspectives that are under-represented in the existing academic heterodox literature are encouraged to submit proposals. Both single-authored works and edited collections are welcome.

The Harvard Cold War Studies Book

Series Editor: Mark Kramer, director of the Cold War Studies Program at Harvard University and a senior fellow at Harvard’s Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies

 

The collapse of the Soviet Union has led to immense opportunities for primary research on all aspects of the Cold War as Eastern-bloc archives have begun to open.  The vast amount of newly released documentation and first-hand accounts has enabled scholars to gain a much better understanding of events that once seemed impenetrable.  The Harvard Cold War Project was established to take advantage of these opportunities by promoting archival research in former Eastern-bloc countries. The Project seeks to expand and enrich what is known about Cold War events and themes, and encourages scholars to use their research on Cold War topics to illuminate current theoretical debates about international and domestic politics.  This series, comprising original monographs by scholars working in conjunction with the Harvard Cold War Project, emphasizes the use of new archival evidence to test and reexamine theoretical concepts.

Religion

 

Studies in Body and Religion

Series Editors: Richard M. Carp and Rebecca Sachs Norris

Contact: rmc8@stmarys-ca.edu and norrisr@merrimack.edu

 

Studies in Body and Religion publishes contemporary research and theory that addresses body as a fundamental category of analysis in the study of religion. Embodied humans conceive of, study, transmit, receive, and practice religion, with and through their bodies and bodily capacities. Volumes in this series will include diverse examples and perspectives on the roles and understandings of body in religion, as well as the influence and importance of religion for body. They will also move conversation on body and religion forward by problematizing “body,’ which, like “religion,” is a contested concept. We do not know exactly what religion is, nor do we know exactly what body is, either; much less do we understand their mutual interpenetrations. This series aims to address this by bringing multiple understandings of body into an arena of conversation.

Education

 

Youth Culture and Pedagogy in the 21st Century

Series Editors: William Reynolds and Brad Porfilio

 

This series critically investigates and informs the construction of identity through the study of various forms of contemporary media, and will expand the notions of critical media literacy and its implications for multiple understandings of culture and youth. Popular culture (including media texts) is one of the primary sites of education for our youth, so it is crucial for those scholars involved in critical media studies to discuss these issues in book form. How do multiple interpretations of popular culture within conceptualizations of media enhance our understandings of education, and how can critical pedagogy, in the Freirean sense, be expanded to develop a student’s critical consciousness of the works (books, films, games, social media, etc.) that surround them in popular culture? The books in this series tackle those tough questions and others in youth pedagogy.

Critical Education Policy and Politics

Series Editors: Michael A. Peters and A.C. (Tina) Besley

 

Description: This series focuses on current issues in education policy. Books explore the development of the new educational policies and practices that are changing the structure and functioning of educational institutions —primary, secondary, and higher— both in the United States and abroad. In the U.S., the involvement of the federal government in legislating education has brought a new era of testing and accountability while raising questions about the role of schools in promoting social inclusion and providing basic training for the new economy, specifically science, technology, and math related professions. Critical Education Policy and Politics will take on hot topics such as: charter schools, testing, vouchers and tax deductions for education, teacher education and the teaching profession, and public v. private competition, among other important issues in today’s educational politics.

Cine-Aesthetics: New Directions in Film and Philosophy

Series Editors: Stuart Kendall, Steven Rybin, Thomas Deane Tucker

 

Moving beyond other approaches that merely use film to illustrate philosophy, the books included in this series will probe the question of the relationship between the institutions of Film Studies and Philosophy by setting into motion the encounter between the aesthetics, history, and theories of cinema and the creation of concepts on the philosophical plane. Cine-Aesthetics: New Directions in Film and Philosophy will actively probe what the interdisciplinary contact between film and philosophy means to both the practice of film study and the creation of philosophical meaning.

Race, Rites, and Rhetoric: Colors, Cultures, and Communication

Series Editor: Aaron David Gresson III

 

This series focuses on the renegotiation of race as “black-white” and the interplay of “material/cultural” forces in the description and negotiation of everyday relations among diverse peoples. Color continues its fascination in the face of unrepentant choice to define and differentiate according to physical traits. Moreover, rhetoric itself participates in the normalization of an undeniably contested terrain; perspectives and realities confront power and result in complex compromises around identity and relation. Studies that capture this tension are crucial.

 

Race, Rites, and Rhetoric seeks to combine the concerns and challenges of persuasion recognized by the ancient scholars as actualized by everyday challenges, dilemmas, and struggles of humans living in diverse cultural settings. Through an emphasis on ritual aspects of race rhetoric, the series opens up rhetoric as perspective and practice to new audiences.

As did their cultures in antiquity, Greek Studies and Roman Studies will complement each other. Roman Studies focuses on subjects related to the Roman world, examined from a multitude of angles. As the chronological, the territorial, and the cultural expanse of the field demand interdisciplinarity, this series encourages the implementation of newer disciplines and methodologies, such as anthropology, linguistics, sociology, and literary theory, alongside the established methodologies of archaeology and philology. The series editors for Roman Studies: Interdisciplinary Approaches seek new and alternative approaches, especially from younger scholars whose work bridges more than one discipline and encourages us to think beyond established patterns and models of explanation.

Contemporary Whitehead Studies

Series Editors: Roland Faber and Brian G. Henning

 

Contemporary Whitehead Studies, co-sponsored by the Whitehead Research Project, is an interdisciplinary book series that publishes manuscripts from scholars with contemporary and innovative approaches to Whitehead studies by giving special focus to projects that:

Studies in the Thought of Paul Ricoeur

Series editors: Greg S. Johnson and Dan R. Stiver

 

Studies in the Thought of Paul Ricoeur, a series in conjunction with the Society for Ricoeur Studies, aims to generate research on Ricoeur, about whom interest is rapidly growing both nationally (US and Canada) and internationally. Broadly construed, the series has three interrelated themes. First, we develop the historical connections to and in Ricoeur’s thought. Second, we pursue further Ricoeur’s dialogue with contemporary thinkers representing a variety of disciplines. Finally, we utilize Ricoeur to address future prospects in philosophy and other fields that respond to emerging issues of importance. The series approaches these themes from the belief that Ricoeur’s thought is not just suited to theoretical exchanges, but can and does matter for how we actually engage in the many dimensions that constitute lived existence.

Postphenomenology and the Philosophy of Technology

 

Series editors

Editor-in-Chief: Robert Rosenberger, Georgia Institute of Technology

Executive Editors: Don Ihde, Stony Brook University, Emeritus; Peter-Paul Verbeek, University of Twente

                         

                                    

As technologies continue to advance, they correspondingly continue to make fundamental changes to our lives. Technological changes have effects on everything from our understandings of ethics, politics, and communication, to gender, science, and selfhood. Philosophical reflection on technology can help draw out and analyze the nature of these changes, and help us to understand both the broad patterns of technological effects and the concrete details. The purpose of this series is to provide a publication outlet for field of the philosophy of technology in general, and the school of thought called “postphenomenology” in particular. The field of philosophy of technology applies insights from the history of philosophy to current issues in technology, and reflects on how technological developments change our understanding of philosophical issues. Postphenomenology is the name of an emerging research perspective used by a growing international and interdisciplinary group of scholars. This perspective utilizes insights from the philosophical tradition of phenomenology to analyze human relationships with technologies, and also integrates philosophical commitments of the American pragmatist tradition of thought.

Philosophy of Popular Culture

Series editor: Mark T. Conard, Marymount Manhattan College

The Philosophy of Popular Culture series comprises volumes that explore the intersection of philosophy and popular culture. The works are devoted to a subject in popular culture, such as a particular genre, filmmaker, or television show. The essays investigate the philosophical underpinnings, or do a philosophical analysis, of the particular topic. The books will contain smart, jargon-free essays that illuminate texts (films and TV shows) in popular culture, and they will introduce non-specialists to traditional philosophical ideas and issues. The governing ideas of the series are that texts in popular culture are worthy of philosophical analysis and that philosophical thinking and traditional philosophical ideas can enlighten us and enrich our everyday lives.

Philosophy of Race

Series editor: George Yancy, Duquesne University

The Philosophy of Race book series seeks interdisciplinary projects that center upon the concept of race. Race, though not a natural kind, is a social kind that has deep and significant embodied, existential, political, social, and historical implications. The series is a site for philosophers and scholars whose work critically addresses race and the process of racialization. As such, the series is open to examine monographs, edited collections, and revised dissertations that analyze race from multiple perspectives—existential, phenomenological, sociopolitical, feminist, theological, historical—along philosophical lines. The Philosophy of Race book series speaks to the significant scholarship that is being produced related to the concept of race, especially in the field of philosophy.

Critical Africana Studies: African, African American, and Caribbean Interdisciplinary and Intersectional Studies

Series Editor: Reiland Rabaka

Series Editorial Board: Christel N. Temple, Martell Teasley, Deborah Whaley

Contact: Reiland.Rabaka@Colorado.EDU

.

 

The Critical Africana Studies book series features critical, interdisciplinary, and intersectional scholarship within the emerging field of Africana studies. Most scholars within the field agree that “Africana studies” is essentially a rubric term utilized to conceptually capture the teaching and research of a wide-range of intellectuals (both “academic” and “organic” intellectuals) working in disciplines or subdisciplines as discursively diverse as: African studies, African diasporan studies, African American studies, Afro-American studies, Afro-Asian studies, Afro-European studies, Afro-Islamic studies, Afro-Jewish studies, Afro-Latino studies, Afro-Native American studies, Caribbean studies, Pan-African studies, Black British studies and, of course, Black studies. Epistemological and methodological advances in Africana studies, as well as historical and cultural changes, over the last fifty years have led to an increased interest in continental and diasporan African history, culture, thought, and struggles. The Critical Africana Studies book series directly responds to the heightened demand for monographs and edited volumes that innovatively explore Africa and its diaspora employing cutting-edge critical, interdisciplinary, and intersectional theory and methods.

Critical Animal Studies, Theory, Pedagogy, and Methodology

Series Editors: Dan Featherston and Anthony J. Nocella II

 

The Critical Animal Studies and Theory series for Lexington Books addresses human relations with other animals in the context of socio-political relations and economic systems of power.  Critical Animal Studies and Theory argues that liberation is not a single-issue phenomenon, but rather inseparably related to human rights, peace and justice, and environmental issues and movements. Instead of emphasizing abstract theory, the series links theory with practice for animal advocacy and a humane, democratic, peaceful, and sustainable world. Taking an interdisciplinary approach to questions of social change, moral progress, and ecological sustainability, the Critical Animal Studies and Theory series connects with traditional disciplines such as economics, political science, religion, history, education, sociology, science, English, anthropology, and art. Further, this series is interested in interdisciplinary fields of study and theories such as feminism, globalization, disability studies, eco-ability, ecopedagogy, environmental studies, ethnic studies, critical race theory, media studies, and cultural studies. The series will serve as a foundational project for one of the fastest growing and most exciting new fields of scholarship, Critical Animal Studies.  Rooted in critical theory as well as the animal advocacy movement, Critical Animal Studies and Theory argues for an interdisciplinary and intersectional approach to understanding our relationships with nonhuman animals. Rejecting the notion that nonhuman animals do not have a voice, the series stresses that nonhuman animals do have agency, and thus argues for an animal standpoint. In keeping with the principles of Critical Animal Studies, the series encourages progressive and committed scholarship and sees exploitation of nonhuman animals as interrelated with other forms of oppression based on issues such as class, gender, and racism. Against apolitical scholarship, the series encourages engaged critical praxis, total liberation, social justice, and the end of all systems of domination.

New Directions in Culture and Governance

Series Editor: Terry Nichols Clark

 

This series has a combined focus on innovation in local governance and new developments in the field of cultural policy. Culture functions, much like society itself, as a complex system of elements that often acts to strengthen attachments to place. New Directions publishes scholarship that is thematically diverse—examining culture, for example, as a trigger for economic renewal or as a tool for intercultural understanding—and while books in the series may use differing methodologies, we are especially interested in creative applications of social science research.

Criminology

 

Issues in Crime & Justice

Series Editor: Gregg Barak

 

As we embark upon the twentieth-first century, the meanings of crime continue to evolve and our approaches to justice are in flux. The contributions to this series focus their attention on crime and justice as well as on crime control and prevention in the context of a dynamically changing legal order. Across the series, there are books that consider the full range of crime and criminality and that engage a diverse set of topics related to the formal and informal workings of the administration of criminal justice. In an age of globalization, crime and criminality are no longer confined, if they ever were, to the boundaries of single nation-states. As a consequence, while many books in the series will address crime and justice in the United States, the scope of these books will accommodate a global perspective and they will consider such eminently global issues such as slavery, terrorism, or punishment. Books in the series are written to be used as supplements in standard undergraduate and graduate courses in criminology and criminal justice and related courses in sociology. Some of the standard courses in these areas include: introduction to criminal justice, introduction to law enforcement, introduction to corrections, juvenile justice, crime and delinquency, criminal law, white collar, corporate, and organized crime.

Honor and Obligation in Liberal Society: Problems and Prospects

Editors: Laurie Johnson and Dan Demetriou

lauriej@k-state.edu

 

Liberalism’s political, economic, and social benefits are undeniable. However, these benefits come with a price: liberal societies are losing their sense of honor, civic obligation, higher moral purpose, shared values, and community. This series focuses on classical liberalism, honor, and social and civic obligation. We invite contributions on the problems within liberalism in general, and especially scholarship addressing how honor codes are challenged or changed by liberalism. We also welcome manuscripts which conceptualize liberalism in ways compatible with modern needs, or discuss the prospects and problems associated with the so-called “bourgeois virtues” extolled by liberal philosophers, and their connection to materialism, individualism, and social obligation. Scholars who can address the international dimension of these questions are also sought: for instance, globalization may spread economic development, but at what expense to cultural norms and practices that have kept traditional societies intact? This series is open to contributions from scholars representing classics, political science, international relations, philosophy, history, literature, religious studies, and other disciplines whose work bears on these questions. Successful proposals will be accessible to a multidisciplinary audience, and advance our understanding of liberalism, its development, and its repercussions for our future.

Conflict and Security in the Developing World

Akanmu Adebayo

aadebayo@kennesaw.edu

 

Since the end of World War II, there have been more intrastate than interstate conflicts—and most of the violent conflicts have occurred in the developing world. Many conflicts are over complex issues of governance and development while others have been over ethnicity, politics, religion, and other cultural issues. They have often resulted in fragile, uncoordinated, failing or collapsed states, and grave global security concerns prompting massive peacekeeping, peacebuilding, and other conflict transformation efforts. This series publishes works that expand our understanding of, and that propose possible solutions to, issues of conflicts and security in the developing world. The series conceives the “developing world” broadly as transitional societies and emerging markets in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Oceania. The series publishes works that are interdisciplinary and cross-cutting, that combine Western and local perspectives, and that employ a diversity of research methods, theories, and approaches. Examples of topics include youth vulnerability and exclusion, police and policing, terrorism, small arms, genocidal wars, drug and human trafficking, security sector reform, natural resource governance, faith and violence, democratization and governance, gender and development, regional organizations and peacebuilding, electoral issues, and indigenous conflict management mechanisms. These works may cut across the region or focus on a country or community.

Logos: New Perspectives on Modern Society and Culture

Editor: Michael J. Thompson

 

The books in the Logos series examine modern society, politics, and culture, emphasizing the connections between these spheres rather than their academic separateness. Skeptical of what current intellectual trends call “interdisciplinary,” titles in this series explore the ways that politics, economics, and culture inform one another, overlap, and weave the complex fabric of modern life in a global context. By putting forth bold ideas written to appeal to a broad range of interests, the series situates itself within the long tradition of intelligent social critique.

Global Encounters: Studies in Comparative Political Theory

Editor: Fred Dallmayr

Contact: Fred.R.Dallmayr.1@nd.edu

 

This series seeks to inaugurate a new field of inquiry and intellectual concern: that of comparative political theory as an inquiry proceeding not from the citadel of a global hegemony but through cross-cultural dialogue and critical interaction. By opening the discourse of political theory—today largely dominated by American and European intellectuals—to voices from across the global spectrum, we hope to contribute to a richer, multifaceted mode of theorizing as well as to a deeper, cross-cultural awareness of the requirements of global justice.

Augustine in Conversation

Editors: Kim Paffenroth and John Doody

Contacts: kimpaffenroth@msn.com and john.doody@villanova.edu

 

This series produces edited volumes that explore Augustine’s relationship to a particular discipline or field of study. This “relationship” is considered in several different ways: some contributors consider Augustine’s practice of the particular discipline in question; some consider his subsequent influence on the field of study; and others consider how Augustine himself has become an object of study by their discipline. Such variety adds breadth and new perspectives—innovation—to our ongoing conversation with Augustine on topics of lasting import to him and us, while using Augustine as our conversation partner lends focus and a common thread—tradition—to our disparate fields and interests.

Middle East Classics

Editor: Paul J. Rich

 

This series will provide a forum for understanding the current American occupation of Iraq through the lens of the British occupation of Iraq following the breakup of the Ottoman Empire.

 

That overused saying about how those who are ignorant of the past are doomed to repeat it is redeemed by events in the modern Middle East. Going back in time is mandatory in understanding the region’s current problems. Part of the present problem is a failure to understand what happened before American incursions. Lawrence of Arabia was not the only romantic whose prejudices and passions produced boundaries and dilemmas that today defy policy makers, as the remarkable books in this series demonstrate.

 

Selected, edited, and introduced by Professor Paul Rich, they illustrate how the results of a now forgotten era are still felt—knots tied on the tapestry by the collision of the British and Ottoman Empires, the aspirations of the Viceroys of India, the confusions at the Versailles peace conference, and even the ritualisms of Masonic lodges and English public schools. Seldom has the long arm of a very peculiar history reached out so far. The lasting effects are little understood in the complex confrontations today in Iraq, Iran, and the Gulf.

Europe & the World

 

Editors: Sharon Pardo and Joel Peters

Contacts: Sharon Pardo: pardosharon@yahoo.co.uk

   Joel Peters: peters25@vt.edu

 

From the early days of the European Political Cooperation (EPC), the European Union (EU) has emerged as a significant foreign policy and security actor. In a rapidly changing world, the EU faces a series of foreign policy and security challenges.  This book series explores how the EU (and beforehand the European Community (EC)) has addressed and is meeting those challenges.

 

This series welcomes contributions that address all aspects of the EC’s /EU’s external relations.  We are interested in manuscripts that analyze the formulation and implementation of the EU’s policies with specific countries or with various regions of the world.  We also seek books that examine the role of the Union: in global governance and multilateral security structures, the promotion of human rights and international law, the protection of the environment, as a normative actor in the international arena, as a global economic player, and in the prevention, management and resolution of international conflicts.

 

This series will target multiple audiences—senior level undergraduate and post-graduate courses, the policy-making community, civil society organizations and those with a general interest in the EU.  Proposals and manuscripts are invited from a variety of disciplines:  European studies, international relations, strategic studies, political science, economics, and international law.  Manuscripts should be single or co-authored, edited volumes will only be considered in exceptional circumstances.
