BOOK EXCERPT:

First published in 1988, The Search for the Christian Doctrine of God is still considered by many scholars to be the finest work on the Arian Controversy. Examining scholarly works on the Controversy and many original texts, Professor Hanson, provides a clear understanding of how the traditional and historic doctrine of God as the Holy Trinity reached its most mature and enduring form. The author is not primarily concerned to defend the orthodox position itself, but rather to discover and examine the formation of that orthodoxy. The history of the events - the Councils, the interventions of the Emperor, the rivalries of sees, the behaviour of bishops, the varying fortunes of the different schools of thought and their leaders - is interwoven with the progression of thought and doctrine during the sixty years of the Controversy. Professor Hanson sees the problem of the reconciliation of two concepts which were both part of the very fabric of Christianity - monotheism and the worship of Jesus Christ as divine.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Al Qaeda is the most dangerous terrorist movement in history. Yet most people in the West know very little about it, or their view is clouded by misperceptions and half truths. This widely acclaimed book fills this gap with a comprehensive analysis of al Qaeda—the origins, leadership, ideology, and strategy of the terrorist network that brought down the Twin Towers and continues to threaten us today. Bruce Riedel draws on decades of insider experience—he was actually in the White House during the September 11 attacks—in profiling the four most important figures in the al Qaeda movement: Usama bin Laden, ideologue and spokesman Ayman Zawahiri, former leader of al Qaeda in Iraq Abu Musaib al Zarqawi (killed in 2006), and Mullah Omar, its Taliban host. These profiles provide the base from which Riedel delivers a much clearer understanding of al Qaeda and its goals, as well as what must be done to counter and defeat this most dangerous menace.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Liberalism was not only the first modern ideology, it was also the first secular movement to have an international presence. The scholarly articles in this collection, skillfully edited by Ivan Z. Denes, examine liberal ideas and movements from Scotland to the Ottoman Empire. The volume seeks to uncover and analyze various relationships between liberalisms and nationalisms, national identities and modernity concepts, nations and empires, nation-states and nationalities, traditions and modernities, images of the self and the others, modernization strategies and identity creations. This volume provides an important historical analysis that is essential toward understanding the questions and motivations of liberalism in the European Union today. This is, therefore, a timely contribution to both historiography and contemporary politics. From these studies we gain a number of important insights not only into the variety of liberal nationalisms, but also into the unity and diversity of European history.

In this updated and expanded edition of The Search for Beauty in Islam, Abou El Fadl offers eye-opening and enlightening insights into the contemporary realities of the current state of Islam and the West. Through a "conference of the books," an imagined conference of Muslim intellects from centuries past, Abou El Fadl examines the ugliness that has come to plague Muslim realities and attempts to reclaim what he maintains is a core moral value in Islam-the value of beauty. Abou El Fadl argues that the rekindling of the forgotten value of beauty is essential for Muslims today to take back what has been lost to the fundamentalist forces that have denigrated their religion.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Postmodern art theory is an anomaly in the history of art theory. It can be thought of as anti-aesthetic, and is, in part, based on questionable and unreflective premises, such as the ontological conclusions of a Kantian metaphysic. The author makes the argument that a new and less subjective art theory needs to incorporate the aesthetic tradition, as well as consider the visual arts as involved and concerned with the transendent and universal. Without such a theory in place, art as well as art education run the risk of being anti-aesthetic.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Dreamers they were, sailing out into the west in quest of they knew not what-puppets in the game of destiny. What splendid courage it must have needed to sail in their little cockle-shells of vessels over that untravelled sea, with its dangers all the more terrifying because unknown... -Lawrence J. Burpee, in the Introduction From the discovery of Hudson Bay and the search for the mythical Northwest Passage to the first overland journey to the Pacific, Canadian historian Lawrence Burpee makes the story of the exploration of northwestern North America come alive in this classic book, first published in 1908. Meet Samuel Hearne, who survived Indian massacres to discover the mouth of the Coppermine River in 1771 and proved the nonexistence of a water passage across the continent; the adventurous La V rendrye family of explorers; path-finding fur trader Peter Pond; astronomer and surveyor David Thompson; and others who contributed to the European settlement of North America. LAWRENCE J. BURPEE (1873-1947), a beloved popularizer of Canadian history, was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In addition to authoring numerous books of North American exploration, including Pathfinders of the Great Plains and The Discovery of Canada, he was also the founding editor of Canadian Geographical Journal and among the founders of the Canadian Historical Association. He served on the board of the Boy Scouts of Canada and was a member of the Royal Society of Canada and the National Geographic Society.
