Israel and the Peace Process 1977-1982 (October 1994)
In Search of Legitimacy for Peace
Yaacov Bar-Siman-Tov - Author

"This is a serious and competent work of scholarship, clearly written, meticulously documented. Its message is that the achievement of peaceful settlement in a protracted and violent international (or interethnic) conflict is possible only if certain conditions are realized. These involve specific domestic considerations, notably legitimacy (that is, the mobilization of support) in society as well as in government at all stages of the peacemaking p...(Read More)

Classroom in Conflict (September 1994)
Teaching Controversial Subjects in a Diverse Society
John A. Williams - Author

This book transcends recent debates about political correctness to address the underlying problems of teaching controversial subjects in the college and university history classroom. The author criticizes both sides of the debate, rejecting, on the one hand, calls for a uniform, chronological history curriculum and, on the other hand, claims that only ethnic or racial "insiders" are qualified to teach about their communities.
In chapters on colo...(Read More)

Baroque Festive Performances as Rhetorical Discourse
Kristiaan Aercke - Author

"While most scholars who have worked on the relationship of art and power in the Renaissance and Baroque ages have limited their focus to one national tradition, or at best to England, France, and Italy, Aercke brings the baroque spectacle performance to life as a truly pan-European phenomenon, as interesting for its common characteristics as for its particular formulation in particular courtly settings. The depth and breadth of his research are mo...(Read More)

Philosophical Foundations of Historical Knowledge
Philosophical Foundations of Historical Knowledge (July 1994)
Murray G. Murphey - Author

"This is philosophy of the highest order. Several of the most fundamental and challenging philosophical problems are discussed with analytical rigor, subtlety, originality, technical sophistication, detailed familiarity with the vast relevant literature, and lucidity. What I find most exciting is the way Murphey is able to make a powerful case for pragmatic naturalism and natural realism on the basis of an amazing mastery of the vast recent literatu...(Read More)

Edmund Burke and the Politics of Progress
James Conniff - Author

Neither a polemic nor a highly specialized study, this book is a comprehensive assessment of Burke's political thought. Using evidence from such neglected sources as Burke's essays on history and law and making full use of his extensive correspondence, the author places Burke in the context of developments in a number of areas of eighteenth-century British intellectual life, ranging from philosophy to literature, and presents him as a key figure in ...(Read More)
 
 
The End of the Jihad State
The End of the Jihad State (June 1994)
The Reign of Hisham Ibn 'Abd al-Malik and the Collapse of the Umayyads
Khalid Yahya Blankinship - Author

Demonstrates for the first time that the cause of the Umayyad caliphate’s collapse came not just from internal conflict, but from a number of external and concurrent factors that exceeded the caliphate’s capacity to respond.
Stretching from Morocco to China, the Umayyad caliphate based its expansion and success on the doctrine of jihad--armed struggle to claim the whole earth for God's rule, a struggle that had brought much materia...(Read More)
