An American poet, repatriated in the land of her ancestors, Adrianne Kalfopoulou is a consummate storyteller. Lucid, precise, and unflinching, Broken Greek stands up to comparison with previous accounts of the Greek experience, with great style. It's a lively and poignant journey to the gods and demons of present-time Greece. Stratis Haviaras, author of When the Tree Sings and The Heroic Age Unlike other writers on modern Greece, Adrianne Kalfopoulou gives us a powerful non-fiction narrative that goes against the romantic notions that most people have of this country. Her sensitivity to the verbal noise that hovers around the Hellene like a cartoon bubble transforms important decisions (buying that lovely island house, getting into a car accident, applying for a teaching job at the Greek university, raising a hybrid daughter), into a transcendent read. Nicholas Papandreou, author of A Crowded Heart What happens when the common things of everyday life become a constant negotiation of one's place in one's world? This is the predicament of the migrant, of the millions of people who try to make their life in a different place. This book is full of love, and yet also full of frustration and anger: Adrianne Kalfopoulou desires to be a part of this world of ancestry, but is forced to admit she can't, that one cannot enter the same river twice. Jose Itzigsohn, Brown University In Broken Greek, Adrianne Kalfopoulou takes us beyond the whitewash into the heart of Greek culture, as well as its spleen. She guides us through the labyrinth of Athenian and Patmian streets and creates a map of the contradictory Greek psyche. People argue loudly in public, are fatalistic about politics and the law while family and neighbors unconditionally help their own. In her vividly wrought odyssey she learns that "Greece eats her children," but also how to speak "a language of vulnerability." Aliki Barnstone, translator of The Collected Poems of C.P. Cavafy, A New Translation

It explores the human desire to find one's 'own place' in new cultural contexts, and looks at the role of language in shaping a sense of belonging in society.

"... a book of striking originality and depth, a brilliant and quite new interpretation of the nature and history of philosophy." —John Sallis In Broken Hegemonies, the late distinguished philosopher Reiner Schürmann offers a radical rethinking of the history of Western philosophy from the Greeks through Heidegger. Schürmann interprets the history of Western thought and action as a series of eras governed by the rise and fall of certain dominating philosophical ideas that contained the seeds of their own destruction. These eras coincided with their dominant languages: Greek, Latin, and vernacular tongues. Analyzing philosophical texts from Parmenides, Plotinus, and Cicero, through Augustine, Meister Eckhardt, and Kant, to Heidegger, Schürmann traces the arguments by which these ideas gained hegemony and by which their credibility was ultimately demolished. Recognizing the failure of ultimate norms, Broken Hegemonies questions how humanity today is to think and act in the absence of principles.
