Zhivov, Victor
Victor Zhivov's magisterial "Language and Culture in Eighteenth-Century Russia" tells the story of the creation of a new vernacular literary language in modern Russia, an achievement arguably on a par with the nation's extraordinary military successes, territorial expansion, development of the arts and formation of a modern empire. The language served as the primary vehicle for Russia's modernization and for its entry into the Western European cultural sphere, and Zhivov demonstrates that the unusually intense debates over it, down to violent disagreements over particular grammatical endings, have profound implications for understanding the basic social, political, and cultural dynamics of the era. "Language and Culture" analyzes the European theories concerning modern literary languages that were transplanted into Russia and demonstrates the ways in which they were creatively transformed when adapted to the complex legacy of medieval and seventeenth-century literary culture. Zhivov traces this creative adaptation from the "hybrid Slavonic" of the late seventeenth century; through Peter the Great's demand for a new Russian vernacular literary language; to the "Slaveno-Russian" linguistic and cultural synthesis of mid-century and the beginnings of a Russian literary tradition; to the early nineteenth-century debates between "archaists and innovators"; and fi nally to the subsequent decoupling of secular and religious language and culture that in his view represented the last echo of eighteenth-century debates. Language and Culture in Eighteenth-Century Russia fundamentally revises much of the received wisdom concerning the development of the literary language and offers fundamentally new perspectives on the genesis and development of modern Russian language, literature, and culture. 506pp. N.B. Head and tail of spine and D/J spine very slightly bumped.

Ginat, Joseph and Perkins, Edward J.
There has been little progress on the refugee problem because of official Palestinian public positions, other Arab countries' approach to the 'right of return' of all Palestinian refugees, and the contrasting Israeli public policy of not allowing any refugees to return to Israel. Such polar-opposite approaches can never resolve this difficult and longstanding humanitarian problem. By working collectively, the world's leading experts from Arab countries, the Palestinian Authority, Israel, Europe and the United States have developed a chessboard of proposed solutions. The volume in part reflects the polarization that exists on the issue, and in part moves away from the political slogans of both sides, toward concrete proposals for negotiating a comprehensive agreement. 341pp.

Blinkenberg, Lars
One of the most persistent area of conflict since World-War II, the Indo-Pakistan troubles, "celebrated" their 50th anniversary in the second half of 1997 without there being any solution in sight. Since august 1947, when the two new states were created out of British India, there has been almost uninterrupted conflict between India and Pakistan. On three occasions, in 1947, in 1965 and 1971, it has led to war. The first volume of India-Pakistan is a study of the historical background to the conflict, while the second volume provides analysis of the many structural factors, in particular with regard to the political background in India during the first period of conflict. Differences arose out of a post-colonial settlement which was driven by the old British policy of "Divide and Rule", but which was effected in a special way due to the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru´s and to the suggestions of the Viceroy Mountbatten. This volume also includes interviews with many, politicians and journalists among them, who have been deeply involved in and have an intimate knowledge of the subcontinent and its recent history. 433pp.
