BETWEEN YESTERDAY AND TOMORROWGerman Visions of Europe, 1926-1950
"By looking at political and intellectual discourses from a wide array of political perspectives (conservative, Catholic, regional, social democratic), this book makes several important points in discussing various rival conceptions of 'Europes that never happened' but that allowed a diverse array of political groupings to converge on support for European integration. This book will resonate not just with historians but also political scientists and sociologists." · Eric Langenbacher, Georgetown University
SCIENCE, SETI, AND MATHEMATICSCarl L. DeVito
"The story of math, itself a story of discovering our place in the universe, is presented in three ways and the author is a genius when it comes to making math accessible and palatable to readers with minimal interest and background…The material on astrobiology and SETI is accurate, clear and comprehensive, and up to date, stressing points that will delight and inform the uninitiated." · Albert Harrison, University of California, Davis

TRANSCULTURAL MONTAGEEdited by Christian Suhr & Rane Willerslev
“This is an ambitious and ground-breaking volume which takes a thoroughly interdisciplinary perspective on what the editors have branded as ‘transcultural montage.’ ...The total effect is a mesmerising and in many ways insightful comparative endeavour that will do much to consolidate montage as a theme that goes to the heart of contemporary social theory.” · Martin Holbraad, University College London

MULTIPLE MORALITIES AND RELIGIONS IN POST-SOVIET RUSSIAEdited by Jarrett Zigon
“In this volume, the discussion of multiple moralities, religions and secularisms is put forth by multiple voices of researchers as well…representing different levels of ethnographic intimacy and theoretical engagement. While this disparity could end up as a flaw, as often happens with edited volumes, in this case it complements well the complexity of the moral worlds of informants and heterogeneity of local moral discourses … This volume also enriches the study of secularism, religion and morality in post-Soviet studies and beyond.” · Social Analysis
