Item Description
A Genealogy of Islamic Feminism: Pattern and Change in Indonesia

ETIN ANWAR, Associate Professor of Religious Studies

A Genealogy of Islamic Feminism offers a new insight on the changing relationship between Islam and feminism from the colonial era in the 1900s to the early 1990s in Indonesia. The book juxtaposes both colonial and postcolonial sites to show the changes and the patterns of the encounters between Islam and feminism within the global and local nexus. Global forces include Dutch colonialism, developmentalism, transnational feminism, and the United Nations' institutional bodies and their conferences. Local factors are comprised of women's movements, adat (customs), nationalism, the politics underlying the imposition of Pancasila ideology and maternal virtues, and variations of Islamic revivalism. Using a genealogical approach, the book examines the multifaceted encounters between Islam and feminism and attempts to rediscover egalitarianism in the Islamic tradition--a concept which has been subjugated by hierarchical gender systems. The book also systematizes Muslim women's encounters with Islam and feminism into five phases: emancipation, association, development, integration, and proliferation eras. Each era discusses the confluence of global and local factors which shape the changing relationship between Islam and feminism and the way in which the discursive narrative of equality is debated and contextualized, progressing from biological determinism (kodrat) to the ethico-spiritual argument. Islamic feminism contributes to the rediscovery of Islam as the source of progress, the centering of women's agency through spiritual equality, and the reworking of the private and public spheres. This book will appeal to anyone with interest in international women's movements, interdisciplinary studies, cultural studies, women's studies, post-colonial studies, Islamic studies, and Asian studies.

ADIRONDACK WILDLIFE: A Field Guide

Item Description

JAMES M. RYAN, Professor of Biology

The breathtaking six-million-acre Adirondack Park in upstate New York is comprised of a multiplicity of habitats, including over 2,800 lakes and ponds, more than 30,000 miles of running water, and 46 major mountain peaks. Adirondack Wildlife: A Field Guide is, astonishingly, the first authoritative handbook devoted to the natural history and ecology of the Adirondacks and the Park's invertebrates, fish, reptiles, birds, and mammals.

The book leads the reader on an intimate journey through the Adirondack Park, beginning with the alpine communities above timberline and descending through the conifer and hardwood forests to the wetlands, streams, and lakes. Ryan's crisp and authoritative species-by-species accounts of the park's fauna are fabulously illustrated in color and in black and white. The book is portable and geared towards use in the field. Each chapter concludes with "sources and additional readings;" back matter includes a glossary and species checklists. The park's hundreds of thousands of residents and millions of visitors will profit immeasurably by having the indispensable Adirondack Wildlife at hand.

AFRICA'S CHALLENGE TO INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS THEORY

Item Description

KEVIN DUNN, Associate Professor of Political Science

Africa has been noticeably absent in international relations theory. This new collection of essays by contemporary Africanists convincingly demonstrates the importance of the continent to every theoretical approach in international relations. The book breaks new ground in how we think about both international relations and Africa, re-examining such foundational concepts as sovereignty, the state, and power; critically investigating the salience of realism, neo-liberalism, liberalism in Africa, and providing new thinking about regionalism, security, and identity.

Africa's Insurgents: Navigating an Evolving Landscape

Item Description

KEVIN DUNN

Amid an array of shifting national, regional, and global forces, how have African insurgents managed to adapt and survive?

AFTER THE REVOLUTION

Item Description

CRAIG RIMMERMAN (Contributor), Professor of Public Policy and Political Science

This edited collection of original commissioned essays tells the important story of how interest groups and PACs (Political Action Committees) from business, labor, and other activist organizations have worked with the changing rules governing lobbying and "sea change" provided by the Republican Revolution in 1994 to try to achieve their particular goals. This book shows how Congress and interest groups have interacted, how the current system works, and how certain changes may affect these relationships in the future. The essays, describing the lobbying tactics of business groups like AT&T, labor groups like AFL-CIO, and membership groups like The Sierra Club are written by accomplished political scientists who tell the stories in compelling and provocative ways, and describe how each group has handled the changes under the New Republican Congress. Anyone with an interest in campaigns, elections, and Congress.

KANATE DAHOUDA, Professor of French and Francophone studies

Bien des critiques ont noté la présence du phénomène de l’exil dans la littérature des Antilles et dans celle du Québec. Ainsi dans un article consacré à Césaire, Michael Dash relève-t-il que « l’évolution de la poésie antillaise est étroitement liée à l’idée de l’exil ». Cette idée de l’exil, Pierre Nepveu l’identifie, pour sa part, sous la forme d’une métaphore filée dans la conscience littéraire...

APPENDICES PULLED FROM A STUDY ON LIGHT

Item Description

GEOFFREY BABBITT, Assistant Professor of English and Comparative Lit.

"Geoffrey Babbitt writes with a Sebaldian sense of time and cycles, with the experimental soul that Geoffrey Hill was reaching for, and all the lyricism of Komunyakaa; so what can this mean? It means that Babbitt is an original and fresh voice, one that tugs at you with the sense of the familiar and yet with nothing you can pin down. It means that while you can see grace notes in his work, there is nothing of any other poet in him, a one-off, a beautiful but unexpected shift of light. What he does here, with delicacy and subtle moves, is create a space for presence to manifest. He pries open the matters of belief, of the terror of the loss of faith, of the constant negotiation between the heart and the mind, between the intellect and that awe we all believe to be present in the daily moments of our lives and loves but can never find the words for. This book is a meditation that the reader will return to often and rediscover themselves and the world in fresh and promising ways. It is the offering from a man in deep, abiding love with poetry and all the hope it offers." CHRIS ABANI
