Black, Georgina Dopico
In "Perfect Wives, Other Women", Georgina Dopico Black examines the role played by women's bodies - specifically the bodies of wives - in Spain and Spanish America during the Inquisition. In her quest to show how both the body and soul of the married woman became the site of anxious inquiry, Dopico Black mines a variety of Golden Age texts for instances in which the era's persistent preoccupation with racial, religious, and cultural otherness was reflected in the depiction of women. Subject to the scrutiny of a remarkable array of gazes-inquisitors, theologians, religious reformers, confessors, poets, playwrights, and, not least among them, husbands - the bodies of perfect and imperfect wives elicited diverse readings.Dopico Black reveals how imperialism, the Inquisition, inflation, and economic decline each contributed to a correspondence between the meanings of these human bodies and 'other' bodies, such as those of the Jew, the Moor, the Lutheran, the degenerate, and whoever else departed from a recognised norm. The body of the wife, in other words, became associated with categories separate from anatomy, reflecting the particular hermeneutics employed during the Inquisition regarding the surveillance of otherness. Dopico Black's compelling argument will engage students of Spanish and Spanish American history and literature, gender studies, women's studies, social psychology and cultural studies. 307pp. N.B. Black ink mark across bottom foredge of pages. Content unaffected.

Reichman-Israelsown, Raymond
In search of the panacea to every ill, The Mind of God takes us on a journey towards the reduction of all questions, and all answers, to one. The universal common denominator - the one without a second, the Kingdom of God - the finding of which will 'add all else' unto us. The author tackles the 'impossible' task of describing the infinite with finite tools - words. He deals with the dilemma of transcending the limitation of words in an effort at expressing the inexpressible, the ineffable, the silence. Within transcendental meditation the word is rendered unnecessary. But words are needed to describe the ladder to reach the transcendent. The book seeks to reconcile the paradox of intellectual and physical work and effortless intuitive revelation and mystical creative realisation. The deepest and most meaningful of expressions do not lie in words, but in the pregnant omniscient infinity between words. The paradox of communication at this level is the necessity to use words to describe the 'wordless.' Exploring reality, creation and the fall of man, man emerges as an expression of God. The Path is the sum of all paths. All religions or spiritual paths lead us Home to Self-Realisation. 182pp.
