  3. New for April - ‘Arabiyyat al-Naas: Part Three

    ‘Arabiyyat al-Naas (Part Three): An Advanced Course in Arabic builds further on the groundbreaking approach used in Part One and Part Two of the series. It integrates Modern Standard Arabic (MSA) and spoken Levantine in a way specially tailored to the needs of advanced students. Levantine Arabic strongly features in spoken discussions of MSA materials, reflecting authentic practice by native speakers.

  6. Now Available - Debates in Medieval Philosophy: Essential Readings and Contemporary Responses

    Debates in Medieval Philosophy: Essential Readings and Contemporary Responses aims to de-mystify medieval works by offering an illuminating, engaging introduction to the problems that medieval philosophers from Augustine through Ockham wrestled with. Each of the volume’s 11 units presents a debate that will enable students to return to the primary texts prepared to think critically and imaginatively about them. The 10 essays newly commissioned for this volume will advance scholarship in medieval metaphysics, ethics, epistemology, logic, and philosophical theology, and in particular they will showcase what is philosophically distinctive and original in medieval philosophy. Students without experience in the history of philosophy will benefit from each unit’s clear, sharply written introductions that supply the necessary background to approach the debates intelligently.

  7. Sustainable Fashion and Textiles

    5 Minutes with Kate Fletcher

    "I'm not sure I can ever remember not being engaged with fashion nor sustainability. Growing up in a family of community activists in inner city Liverpool in the bleak years of Margaret Thatcher’s Britain, it was impossible to avoid direct experience of the necessity of change. As was (for me at any rate), the practice of making clothes."

  8. Coming Soon: Arguing About Political Philosophy, 2nd Edition

    This excellent anthology presents political philosophy and theory within the social sciences as well as the liberal arts. Its thematic units combine selections from historical and contemporary canonical works with well-chosen supplemental texts ranging from literature to economics. It also lets students encounter an unusually wide range of normative positions, and so makes clear that the central problems of political philosophy remain live questions for debate. -Jacob T. Levy, McGill University, Canada

    We are pleased to announce the release of our new textbook Public Administration Research Methods: Tools for Evidence-based Practice and Evaluation. Public service is at a precarious time. Government employees are subject of great criticism related to a general skepticism toward the use agencies as tools to achieve social goals. But at the same time, there is also considerable optimism about the use of analytic techniques to tackle complicated problems and improve public management. As a result, it is an important time to invest in effective training in research methods.
