The Classic of Changes in Cultural Context:

A Textual Archaeology of the Yi jing
Scott Davis
ISBN: 9781604978087

This highly unique study focuses on the archaic core of the Classic of Changes and proposes a structural anthropological analysis for two reasons. First, unlike many treatments of the Yi jing, there is a concern to place the text carefully in the context of the ancient culture which created it. Second, the approach differs from traditional exegesis which did not and ultimately could not address problems of textual understanding in a holistic sense. This book is not a translation of the Classic of Changes; it is a careful interpretation, or rather method of exploration, of the connectivities and topography of the text as a whole. Read More..

English Journeys:

National and Cultural Identity in 1930s and 1940s England
Peter Lowe
ISBN: 9781604978131

This book is concerned with the period in which the discussion of English identity assumed such importance because it could not be assumed that the nation itself would survive. The debate over the country’s identity, structure, and future direction was very real, and many of the issues it stimulated are very much a part of the ongoing discussion of England’s identity today. As such, this book is a valuable addition to collections in literature and history. Read More..

The Green Roosevelt:

Theodore Roosevelt in Appreciation of Wilderness, Wildlife, and Wild Places
Zachary Michael Jack
ISBN: 9781604976939

A handful of collections of Roosevelt’s outdoor writings published to date have mostly followed two well-worn paths: Roosevelt the Sportsman and Roosevelt the Adventurer. This nature-appreciative anthology, then, aims to show a kinder, gentler TR, a man who, importantly, rendered false the supposed divide between sportsman and naturalist. Read More..
