BOOK EXCERPT:

In annotated texts based on those of the acclaimed Florida Edition of The Works of Laurence Sterne, this edition features the two works Sterne produced in the final year of his illness-plagued life: the witty, bawdy, pathetic, and thoughtful A Sentimental Journey through France and Italy; and Continuation of the Bramine's Journal, Sterne's correspondence to a twenty-two-year-old married Englishwoman living in India ("a Diary," as he put it, "of the miserable feelings of a person separated from a Lady for whose Society he languish'd"). Together, these mutually illuminating works offer rich insight into their author's hopes, fears, loves, longings, and philosophy as he prepared to face death and judgment. Excerpts from related texts provide context for understanding the title works in relation to the earlier writings and life of this exuberant yet subtle genius of eighteenth-century English literature.

U.S. foreign policy has undergone seven cycles of fluctuating political commitment to the moral principles at the heart of U.S. national identity. Under President Clinton, Salla asserts, the U.S. achieved a "grand synthesis" of power and morality, thereby making possible a more interventionist foreign policy in response to current global challenges.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Gathered for the Journey sets moral reasoning in a theological context of worship and discipleship (partá1), provides a framework for the moral life based on questions of human fulfillment (partá2), and demonstrates how these theological resources shape a distinctive approach to questions of globalization, Catholic social teaching, the family, war and peace, bioethics, and the environment (partá3). McCarthy and Lysaught have crafted a distinctively unified collection. Gathered for the Journeyrepresents a common project among Catholic scholars who are struggling with similar questions about living faithfully.
