Outcaste Bombay

Juned Shaikh, series edited byPadma Kaimal, K. Sivaramakrishnan, Anand A. Yang

Mystery and Intelligibility

edited by Jeffrey Dirk Wilson
Philosophy is born in its history as pursuit of the wisdom we are never able fully to know. Mystery and Intelligibility: History of Philosophy as Pursuit of Wisdom both argues for that method and presents the results it can achieve. Editor Jeffrey Dirk Wilson has gathered essays from six philosophical luminaries. In "History, Philosophy, and the History of Philosophy," Timothy B. Noone provides the volume's discourse on method in which he...

The Art of Conjecture

Clyde Lee Miller
"Learned ignorance," the recognition that God is beyond us and our knowing capacities is the theological concept for which Nicholas of Cusa is most famous. Despite God's apparent absence Nicholas offers original ways to think about God that would unite his presence with his absence. He called these proposals "conjectures" (coniecturae). Conjecture and conjecturing are central to the methodology of Nicholas's philosophical theology and to his thinking about human knowledge. By using...

Missionaries: Migrants or Expatriates?

Clara Buitrago Valencia
When one speaks of missionaries coming from countries like the United States, they are designated as "expatriates." But what about Pentecostal believers who come from countries like Guatemala,with any institutional support? Are they expatriates or simple immigrants? To answer this question, biographical narratives of Guatemalan independent Pentecostal leaders working in Los Angeles, CA were analyzed using the Habitus Analysis...

Protestant "Sects" and the Spirit of (Anti-) Imperialism

Heinrich Wilhelm Schäfer
This book renders visible the logic of religious and political entanglements between the Americas by tracing and interpreting exemplary developments and conflicts in a historical arc of suspense between two major religious events in 1916 and 2016. The author, in certain cases, does not shy away from an appropriate dose of polemics. The religious and political entanglements have changed; their explosive power remains.

Underground Modernity

Alfrun Kliems, translated by Jake Schneider
The literary scholar Alfrun Kliems explores the aesthetic strategies of Eastern European underground literature, art, film and music in the decades before and after the fall of communism, ranging from the 'father' of Prague Underground, Egon Bondy, to the neo-Dada Club of Polish Losers in Berlin. The works she considers are "underground" in the sense that they were produced illegally, or were received as subversive after...


Jennifer Bowering Delisle
Deriving is a feminist exploration of the creation of life, of family, and of words themselves. Delisle asks: How does past infertility colour the experience of new motherhood? How do historical voices echo in the present? How does language impact our ways of being in the world? These poems embrace the rich material of mothering with unapologetic honesty, confronting the experiences that some would keep hidden. Fear, anger, envy mix with joy and ultimately hope, as Delisle considers the challenges of conceiving and...

Gospel Drunk

Aidan Chafe
Gospel Drunk follows a speaker's journey to find clarity and identity as he contemplates his Catholic upbringing and struggles with loneliness and alcohol addiction. Sharp, intoxicating imagery and a minimalist aesthetic combine in these poems to explore some of our darkest and strongest belief systems, dismantling them with wit and wisdom. Poignant boyhood memories of hockey coaches as "dragons in suits" collide with critiques of "the broken bicycle of recovery." A child's fingers interlace to form a gun during mass and Hulk...

Micheline Maylor
Micheline Maylor's The Bad Wife is an intimate, first-hand account of how to ruin a marriage. This is a story of divorce, love, and what should have been, told in a brave and unflinching voice. Pulling the reader into a startling web of sensuality, guilt, resentment, and pleasure, this collection asks: what if you set off a bomb in your own house? What if you lose love and destroy everything you ever knew? These poems have a disarming immediacy, full of surprising imagery, dark humour, and the bold thoughts of a vibrant and...

Making and Breaking the Yugoslav Working Class

Goran Musić
Workers' self-management was one of the unique features of communist Yugoslavia. Goran Musić has investigated the changing ways in which blue-collar workers perceived the recurring crises of the regime.

These two factories became famous for strikes in 1988 that evoked echoes in popular discourses...

The Tsar, The Empire, and The Nation

Our Man in Warszawa

Jo Harper
Written by a Brit who has lived in Poland for more than twenty years, this book challenges some accepted thinking in the West about Poland and about the rise of Law and Justice (PiS) as the ruling party in 2015.

The result is a vivid description of the events and scrupulous explanations of the political processes, and...

The Narcotic Farm

Nancy D. Campbell, James P. Olsen, JP Olsen, Luke Walden, foreword by Sam Quinones
The United States Narcotic Farm opened in 1935 in the rolling hills of Kentucky horse country. Portrayed in the press as everything from a "New Deal for the drug addict" to a "million-dollar flophouse for junkies," the sprawling art deco facility was equal parts federal prison, treatment center, working farm, and research laboratory. Its mission was to rehabilitate addicts, who were...

Understanding Colson Whitehead, revised and expanded edition

Derek C. Maus
In 2020 Colson Whitehead became the youngest recipient of the Library of Congress Prize for American Fiction. Although Whitehead's widely divergent books complicate overarching categorization, Derek C. Maus argues that they are linked by their skepticism toward the ostensible wisdom inherited from past generations and the various forms of "stories" that transmit it. Whitehead, best known for his Pulitzer Prize winning novel The Underground Railroad, bids readers to accompany him on challenging, often...

Habits and Holiness

Ezra Sullivan
The topic of habitus is one of Thomas Aquinas's greatest contributions to moral theology, but it has been generally neglected in theological scholarship until now. Habits and Holiness is the first work in English to explore Aquinas's rich theology of habit in all of its grandeur and depth. Habits and Holiness shows that most facets of human life and behavior are greatly influenced by habits, which Thomas appraises as an analogous concept that is much broader than previous...

In Reasonable Hope

Patrick Masterson
In Reasonable Hope considers three foundational responses to this quest for some understanding of the existence, meaning, and value of everything. Other approaches can be considered as combinations or variations of these. Firstly, there is the approach which claims that it is our humanity, exercising its unique intelligent subjectivity, that is the source and measure of all possible meaning and value. Nothing can be thought of as existing, meaningful or of value...

What We Hold in Trust

Don J. Briel, Kenneth E. Goodpaster, Michael J. Naughton, foreword by Dennis Holtschneider
The specific concern in What We Hold in Trust comes to this: the Catholic university that sees its principal purpose in terms of the active life, of career, and of changing the world, undermines the contemplative and more deep-rooted purpose of the university. If a university adopts the language of technical and social change as its main and exclusive purpose, it will weaken the...

Fighting for Honor

T. J. Desch-Obi
The presence of African influence and tradition in the Americas has long been recognized in art, music, language, agriculture, and religion. T. J.

In this thorough survey of the history of African martial arts techniques, Desch-Obi maps the translation of numerous physical combat techniques across...

Facts are Stubborn Things

edited by Matthew Minerd
In his The Degrees of Knowledge, Science and Wisdom, Philosophy of Nature, and a number of other texts, the Thomist philosopher Jacques Maritain engaged in lively reflection on the light which Thomism can shed on the nature of the sciences, both in their methodologies as well as in the metaphysical presuppositions on which they are based.

The Body as Anticipatory Sign

edited by David S. Crawford
At least formally, Paul VI's Humanae Vitae merely reaffirmed the Church's perennial teaching. Yet its publication in late July 1968 unleashed a torrent of criticism, perhaps unprecedented in its violence. This response laid bare the profound estrangement of that teaching from modern, liberal culture; it also provoked a fundamental ecclesial crisis. Misunderstanding and resistance to the teaching as a "discrete" norm...

Before the Raj

James Mulholland
During the later decades of the eighteenth century, a rapid influx of English-speaking Europeans arrived in India with an interest in expanding the creation and distribution of anglophone literature.

The Time Machine

Laura Kasischke
The Time Machine is Laura Kasischke's eleventh book of poetry. The Time Machine offers us surreal and transformative explorations of maternity, mortality, and memory. In the opening poem, Laura tells us: "This is what it feels like / to be a woman / who is also a vulture." In a sense, this collection is an elegy for the present self, at once a reminder of all we have lost and all we have to gain if we dig deeply into ourselves: "In the end, no / training was needed...I taught myself so well. / It's all I can do now."

Protected Children, Regulated Mothers

Transformed by settlement and resource extraction, Puget Sound and its future health now depend on a better understanding of the region's...

The Center Is Jesus Christ Himself

edited by Andrew Meszaros
The polarization in the Church today can be traced back to a more fundamental crisis in theology, one which has failed to connect our mundane experiences and the mysteries of the Christian faith with the person of Jesus Christ. Ecclesial discourse on the so-called 'hot- button issues' of the day too often takes place without considering the foundation and goal of the Church. And this is unfortunately...

Getting Right with Lincoln

Edward Steers, Jr., foreword by Joseph Garrera
Did Abraham Lincoln hate his father so much that he would not visit him on his deathbed or buy him a tombstone? Is it true that Ann Rutledge, who died tragically young, was the real love of his life?

Noted historian and Lincoln expert Edward Steers Jr. sets the record straight in this engaging and authoritative...

The Coming of the Spirit of Pestilence

Robert T. Boyd

Just a century later the population had plummeted to only 35,000—a devastating loss of Indigenous lives...

The Life of Saint Eufrosine

The Peking Gazette in Late Imperial China

Emily Mokros
In the Qing dynasty (1644–1911), China experienced far greater access to political information than suggested by the blunt measures of control and censorship employed by modern Chinese regimes.

For both domestic and foreign readers these official gazettes...

Imagined Empires

The Child in the Electric Chair

Eli Faber
At 7:30 a.m. on June 16, 1944, George Junius Stinney Jr. was escorted by four guards to the death chamber. Wearing socks but no shoes, the 14-year-old Black boy walked with his Bible tucked under his arm. The guards strapped his slight, five-foot-one-inch frame into the electric chair. His small size made it difficult to affix the electrode to his right leg and the face mask, which was clearly too large, fell...

Broadway Goes to War

Robert L. McLaughlin, Sally E. Parry

Christina Rice
By the early 1950s, Jane Russell (1921–2011) should have been forgotten. Her career was launched on what is arguably the most notorious advertising campaign in cinema history, which invited filmgoers to see Howard Hughes's The Outlaw (1943) and to "tussle with Russell." Throughout the 1940s, she was nicknamed the "motionless picture actress" and had only three films in theaters. With such a slow, inauspicious start, most aspiring actresses would...

Jayne Mansfield

Eve Golden

Teaching French Neoclassical Tragedy

edited by Hélène Bilis, Hélène E. Bilis, Ellen McClure

This volume addresses both the...

The Past

Wendy Xu
Elegiac and searching, poems written in the long shadow of immigration The poems in Wendy Xu's third collection, The Past, fantasize uneasily about becoming a palatable lyric record of their namesake, while ultimately working to disrupt this Westernized desire.
