From Eugenia Bone, the critically acclaimed author of Mycophilia, comes an approachable, highly personal look at our complex relationship with the microbial world. While researching her book about mushrooms, Eugenia Bone became fascinated with microbes—those life forms that are too small to see without a microscope. Specifically, she wanted to understand the microbes that lived inside other organisms like plants and people. But as she began reading books, scholarly articles, blogs, and even attending an online course in an attempt to grasp the microbiology, she quickly realized she couldn’t do it alone. That’s why she enrolled at Columbia University to study Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Biology. Her stories about being a middle-aged mom embedded in undergrad college life are spot-on and hilarious. But more profoundly, when Bone went back to school she learned that biology is a vast conspiracy of microbes. Microbes invented living and as a result they are part of every aspect of every living thing. This popular science book takes the layman on a broad survey of the role of microbes in nature and illustrates their importance to the existence of everything: atmosphere, soil, plants, and us.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. has been, and continues to be, praised as America’s greatest judge and he is widely considered to have done more than anyone else to breathe life into the Constitution’s right of free speech, probably the most crucial right for democracy. One indeed finds among professors of constitutional law and federal judges the widespread belief that the scope of the First Amendment owes much of its incredible expansion over the last sixty years to Holmes’s judicial dissents in Abrams and Gitlow. In this book, John M. Kang offers the novel thesis that Holmes’s dissenting opinions in Abrams and Gitlow drew in part from a normative worldview structured by an idiosyncratic manliness, a manliness which was itself rooted in physical courage. In making this argument, Kang seeks to show how Holmes’s justification for the right of speech was a bid to proffer a philosophical commentary about the demands of democracy.

From the Viking invasions to the Crusades to the Hundred Years War, wars were crucial agents of change in medieval Europe. They fostered many economic and political changes. They also affected the science, technology, religion, and culture of the parties involved. This two-volume encyclopedia examines all aspects of warfare and military technology in medieval times. Featuring the latest research from the leading experts in medieval military history, the set provides an exhaustive and accurate view of how and why wars were waged throughout Europe, the Byzantine Empire, and the Crusader States from circa 500 CE to circa 1500. Although many reference works have been published in medieval history, this is the first and only encyclopedia to focus exclusively on medieval warfare, offering unique insight into the subject by addressing developments in military technology across the period with articles on topics such as gunpowder and shields. The encyclopedia will appeal to scholars and readers of all levels interested in military history and in the medieval world.

Comprehensive but accessible, the Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages offers a wealth of information not easily available from any other single source, providing 3,000 detailed and concise articles on all aspects of the Middle Age. Six years in the making, this massive work is a co-publication of four international publishers (James Clarke in the UK; Less Editions du Cerf in France; Citta Nuova in Italy; and Fitzroy Dearborn in the United States); it is the collaborative effort of more than 600 scholars coordinated by a team of 30 experts, under the editorial supervision of Andre Vauchez.Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages is based on the scholarship of the last thirty years, and provides both a magisterial overview of the period from the 5th to the 15th centuries as well as a fresh approach to the subject. Cultural, religious, intellectual, social and political history are all covered, and although the main concentration is on Europe and Christendom, the rise of Islam and the Arabs, and of other cultural with which Europeans came into contact, is also extensively treated. Art and architecture (including the building of the great cathedrals), the growth of universities, developments in law, and scientific discoveries are all treated in the same depth as political history. Archaeological, geographical, historical, linguistic, philosophical and theological topics receive full treatment. Biographies of monarchs, bishops and major intellectual figures are included, as are descriptions of varying lengths of major ideas and beliefs.Lively in style and accessible, and enhanced by 640 color and black-and-white illustrations and maps, Encyclopedia of the Middle Ages is the first work thatcomprehensively clarifies how much we still owe to that manifold culture and will be an essential resource for both public and academic libraries.
