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.

Fraser, Jim
Mississippi is well known for its rich soil and plantation mansions, but the bluffs and prairies of its eastern boundary are often overlooked. Here, Jim Fraiser takes a deeper look at those historical gems of eastern Mississippi and its Coast. From Pascagoula to Tupelo, and Jackson too, the beauty of Mississippi's historic homes shines through Rick Guy's stunning photography. With each house pictured, readers learn interesting tidbits about the history of the home, the surrounding area, and the owners (or former owners). For those who love architecture, this book will be a wonderful addition to their collections. Several styles are covered, from the elegant Greek Revival of Waverly in West Point to the Colonial Revival style of Ballymere in Pass Christian. Spanning nearly one hundred years, from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth century, this book has everything. The fantastic images of authentic era refurbishing, interior settings, and antebellum designs portray the influence of the different cultures that collided in the South. From the first page to the last, excellent photography and enthusiastic writing combine to make this a smart selection.96pp.

Bergmann, Gustav; Edited By Tegtmeier,
The large majority of the papers in the present volume were collected by Bergmann under the title "Logic and Reality" which indicates the theme of an ontological foundation for logic or of an ontological analysis of analyticity. Actually, the theme is to be found in almost all of the papers of this volume. When Quine published his attack on the analytic-synthetic distinction, Bergmann defended it vehemently. In contrast to Carnap whom Quine criticised Bergmann takes "analytic" in the narrow sense of "logical truth". However, he later extended the area of the analytic a by including truths (falsehoods) expressing the intentional connection between mental states and the facts they purportedly intend. As can be gathered from Selected Papers I Bergmann is a dualist and became more and more interested in intentionality. Another element of the world's form usually not recognised and discovered by Bergmann is the exemplification tie or exemplification nexus which connects individuals and relational and non-relational universals. Intentionality and exemplification are brought together by Bergmann with logical conjunction and disjunction which he considers as connections in reality and not mere symbols. Moreover, Bergmann offers ontological assays of negation and quantification, of variables and their order. Bergmann holds that the recognition of the logical and categorial form of the world including the intentional connection is crucial to arrive at a tenable epistemological realism. 371pp.
