Gold, Jerome
In this title, publishers from 31 independent presses talk about how they came to publishing and why they stayed (or didn't), the mistakes they made, their relationships with authors, the problems of growth, definitions of success, why they do or do not seek grants, their relationships with distributors, bookstores, New York and Toronto, and each other. More than just a directory, "Publishing Lives" presents these publishers as the spiritual heirs of the nineteenth-century founders of the great New York houses. 570pp. N.B. Bottom corners of boards slightly bumped.

Stankiewicz, W. J.
This book gathers together a selection of the core materials from a lifetime of writing by one of the more eminent political philosophers of our time. Written in lucid prose, this volume can be appreciated by both the professional political scientist and the educated layman. The selections are arranged under (a) values such as liberty, equality, tolerance, justice, the common good; (b) concepts such as authority, sovereignty, the social contract and natural law; and (c) major political ideologies. The result is an extended commentary on today's crucial issues: social change, violence, coercion and political participation. For Stankiewicz, the main concern of political theory is to "establish principles relevant to the public good and to uphold the tradition of the public philosophy of civility". His writings show a remarkable assimilation of the classical body of political theory -- from Plato to Dewey -- the recognition of its tradition and beauty and of its historic role in human affairs. His neo-classical philosophy combats the ills of our society emanating from hedonistic liberalism, such as the pursuit of group rights, anti-authority stances, identity politics and the irrationalism of present-day political correctness. The volume contains numerous examples of his 'crossing swords' with thinkers of various persuasions, such as Leszek Kolakowski, C.B. Macpherson and Jacques Maritain. 543pp.

Lavsky, Hagit
This book, a first attempt to analyse German Zionism in a global Zionist context, sheds new light on the role of German Zionism in the German-Jewish community. It traces the emergence of a small component of the Zionist movement which regardless of size played a distinctive part in both German-Jewish and Zionist history on the eve of World War II. Positioned strategically between East and West, German Zionism was open to influences from both sides. Although post-assimilationist, it was affected by the encounter with East European Jewry. The product was a unique form of Zionism that combined Western ideas with radical 'Palestinocentrism'.292pp.Slight creasing to top section front d/j.
