Early Modern Bromance:

Love, Friendship, and Marriage in Sixteenth-Century Italian Academies
Aria Dal Molin
ISBN: 9781621965527

"A truly groundbreaking book of exceptional interest and potentially long-lasting importance for cultural studies on both sides of the Atlantic. With bold originality as well as scholarly acumen, Aria Dal Molin focuses on the activities of prominent Italian male academies, especially in Cinquecento Siena, and compares their unconventional, sexually daring scripted comedies to 'bromantic' American films and television series of the 1980s–2010s. Providing new insights into revealing parallels and differences between performance contexts across two continents and five centuries, this interdisciplinary and highly readable study is a most welcome one." —Eric Nicholson, Faculty Member, New York University Florence Read More..

Philosophy and Criticism in Latin America:

From Mariátegui to Sloterdijk
Mabel Moraña
ISBN: 9781621965428

"Through a meticulous discussion of the works and contexts of thinkers such as of José Carlos Mariátegui, Enrique Dussel, Bolívar Echeverría and Roger Bartra to Walter Benjamin, Michel Foucault, Pierre Bourdieu, and Peter Sloterdijk, Mabel Moraña demonstrates that Latin American thought has not only been inseparable from Western philosophy but also from the determinants of its history and social struggles." —Adela Pineda Franco, Boston University Read More..

Decadence in Modern Chinese Literature and Culture:

A Comparative and Literary-Historical Reevaluation
Hongjian Wang
ISBN: 9781621965435

"A fascinating study, Decadence in Modern Chinese Literature and Culture analyzes work by literary luminaries such as Yu Dafu, Shao Xunmei, Yu Hua, Su Tong, Wang Shuo, Wang Xiaobo, and Lin Lichuan, exposing writers’ use of the perverse and the decadent to counter traditional aesthetics and excessive politicization while carving out a new modern position for Chinese letters. This book brilliantly illuminates many hidden corners in a complex literary history." —Wendy Larson, University of Oregon Read More..

Writing Poetry, Surviving War:

The Works of Refugee Scholar-Official Chen Yuyi (1090–1139)
Yugen Wang
ISBN: 9781621965466

"A meticulous study of Chen Yuyi’s evolution as a poet in the context of his personal experience and the literary trends in the transitional period between the Northern and the Southern Song. The copious and judicious translations of Chen’s poetic works are well executed and accompanied with incisive explications." —Xiaoshan Yang, University of Notre Dame Read More..

Rethinking the Modern Chinese Canon:

Refractions across the Transpacific
Clara Iwasaki
ISBN: 9781621965473

"The book will benefit not only scholars of modern Chinese literature but of Sinophone studies, comparative literature, American studies, Asian American studies, transpacific studies, cultural studies, and even modern comparative history, and will be an important teaching tool in translation studies." —Ari L. N. Heinrich, Australian National University Read More..

Staging for the Emperors:

A History of Qing Court Theatre, 1683–1923
Liana Chen
ISBN: 9781621965480

"I have read this book with great pleasure and learned a lot from it. This study is evidently based on extensive and careful research of primary sources, and it presents a clear outline of the development of court drama during the Qing dynasty. Doing so, Liana Chen focuses on the reigns of Kangxi, Qianlong, and Jiaqing, and the years Cixi was in power. Such a study is very welcome." —Wilt Idema, Harvard University Read More..

Individual Autonomy and Responsibility in Late Imperial China

Paolo Santangelo
ISBN: 9781621965497

“A timely masterpiece … A major strength of the book is its comparative perspective. Santangelo not only compares and contrasts the terms and reflections within Buddhist, Confucian, and Daoist contexts, but he also expertly brings Western concepts into conversation with the East Asian constructions of self, destiny, shame, and pleasure." —Guotong Li, California State University, Long Beach Read More..

Deterrence by Denial:

Theory and Practice
Alex S. Wilner and Andreas Wenger
ISBN: 9781621965503

“Alex Wilner and Andreas Wenger have assembled a stellar collection of contributors for a timely and penetrating examination of a form of deterrence that has never got the attention it deserves, because of the focus on punitive nuclear deterrence, yet has much wider strategic applications.” —Sir Lawrence Freedman, Emeritus Professor of War Studies, King's College London Read More..

Museum of Consumption:

The Archives of Mass Culture in Argentina (1880–1930)
Graciela Montaldo
ISBN: 9781621965541

“This is one of the most exciting books of cultural criticism I have read in recent years. In a dazzling display of erudition, archival research, and theoretical sophistication, Graciela Montaldo redefines our understanding of urban culture, consumption, and taste as she probes the constitution of mass subjects at the intersection of varied experiences and practices.” —Diana Sorensen, Harvard University Read More..
