Edward Elgar, 2013. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. In this examination of health policy and its development, the authors focus on several core areas. The editors note that while most studies in health policy advocate applying theory to improve care, there is good reason to support evidence-based policy instead. The discussions center on six primary areas: quality, access, and inequalities; supply and health care markets; insurance and expenditures; pharmaceuticals and new technologies; aging and long-term care, and behavior and health production. Editors are McGuire (health economics) and Costa-Font (political economy) at the London School of Economics and Political Science. (2013 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

French writer Jean de La Fontaine (1621-95) cultivated a sophisticated art of subtle echoes in his , and also occasionally established a discreet internal intertextuality. The 12 of the definitive edition had already circulated separately and created brief other series with surprising iridescences, but here scholars focus on a completely unexpected physiognomy that the well-known fables present when read in combination with each other. The nine essays are in French. (2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

BRILL, 2020. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Contemporary French literature is acutely interested in peacetime attempts to make sense of war, says Ruhe, particularly in the history of the bloody conflicts of the 20th century and their repercussions on civilian life. She argues that this literature goes beyond the partial view of national history, and restores the broken link to the history of the colonial era. Many iconic characters are veterans, she points out, returnees who have trouble really returning from war. She explores the narrative methods that allow the authors to address traumas and begin the work of memory. The text is in French. (2020 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

BRILL, 2018. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Since the 1980s, States have been increasingly concerned with ensuring appropriate protection of underwater cultural heritage from damage by anthropogenic activities, which are reaching ever deeper ocean waters, says They. She describes how certain sites in the high seas have raised jurisdictional claims, sometimes grounded on an extension of connecting factors (spatial and extra-spatial) already recognized in general international law and the law of the sea, while other cases are based on hitherto purely factual links. But she finds conventional and customary rules to remain insufficient either for a real delimitation of state's competences or for regulating the exercise of jurisdiction once authorized in a certain sphere. The text is in French. (2018 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

This volume of offers 16 articles presented in an earlier form at the ERCAM (Equipe de recherches sur le christianisme ancient et medieval) conference of March 2015, held in Strasbourg, France, on the theme of the animals and people in the theology of creation. Topics include the absence of language in animals and how this was understood by various philosophers and theologians; theologians’ thoughts on whether animals experience life after death; how animals will feature in a return to creation, particularly as this is described in the Book of Isaac; discussion of the place of animals in the works of Philo of Alexandria; vegetarian animals and the peaceable kingdom according to Irenaeus of Lyon. The volume concludes with a consideration of the papal encyclical Laudato sí for the challenges of a philosophy of animal rights based on the notion that animals suffer just like humans do.

BRILL, 2019. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. After the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran, many Iranian writers fled to other parts of the world, where they continued writing in their new situations. Here Daneshvar analyzes the work of a dozen Iranian authors who settled in France, traces the genesis and evolution of the Franco-Persian literature that they created, and considers the particularities of their writing in a multicultural society. He also explores the process of literary and identity hybridization, which confronts the vestiges of Islamic traditionalism with modernity, and discusses the transcultural nature of the writing. The text is in French. (2019 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Scholars of French literature and art explore the role of the miniature at the crossroads of visual arts, architecture, literature, technology, and science since the 1960s. As model, dollhouse, aquarium, or diorama, they say, miniatures help approach and understand--and perhaps dominate--a complex reality. Many artists consider the miniature as a fully-fledged work of art, offering not detail, ornament, or fragment of an object but a complete vision of it in a different scale. The essays are in French.

Writing in French, they cover pensée sérielle au Moyen Age, de la tradition chrétienne aux listes profanes; nouvelles organisations du savior profane durant la première modernité; and continuités: vices et vertus et l'ordre du monde, du Moyen Age aux Lumières.

In an empirical study, she describes how the diplomatic apparatus is developing and modernizing, and how a singular role identity is emerging around the notion of the Golden Mean. She analyzes the elaboration of this African policy on a theoretical level and situates it in the international system. The text is in French. (2021 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Maklu Publishers, 2015. Paperback. New Book. Paperback. A doctoral thesis in criminology adapted for publication, this is a case study of Brazilian migrants in Spain and Portugal who trade sex for money. The book's basic goal is to look at the relationship between migrants selling sex and victims of sex trafficking. The author examines how politics affects statistics: for instance the assumption that third world women are sexual victims and men are not creates a situation in which males and transvestites are recorded as migrant workers, and females as trafficked sex workers, regardless of whether there is evidence of sexual exploitation. As a result, the study must focus on women. The book takes a neutral stance on trading sex for money, recognizing it describes a range of activities from work to slavery. However, it strongly supports the idea that both left-wing and right-wing ideologies have confused sex trafficking victims, sex workers, and third-world migrants. The aim of the case study is to… Read more

BRILL, 2016. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Contributing to the debates on the decline, crisis, and mutation of the Argentine labor movement in the long term, Santella argues that labor unrest persisted among leading industries through the 1990s well into the new century, though to a lesser extent in terms of historical perspectives; that this contention should be related to the micro and macro-levels, or manufacturing, sectional, and national levels; that the relative decline of industrial unrest was the result of productive material development and hegemonic regimes; and that the decline in manufacturing contention does not imply the disappearance of the labor dispute, which finds expression in other sectors. The takes automobile manufacture as his case study. (2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

AltaMira Press, 2006. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Anthropology and economics would at first appear to be rather different, although they share some of the foundations that undergird all the social sciences. This collection of 14 articles proves that they can work together to their mutual benefit in studying labor and class within household economics, firms and corporate entities, and states, whether pre-modern or transnational. Topic include the pragmatics of running a good city, changes in household traditions in rural Mali and a Philippine fishing village, female heads of households in Mexico, bargaining for labor in coffee and citrus, household production and women's work in rural mining communities, the emergence of worker cooperatives amongst middle-class Japanese housewives, regional transformations in labor availability, the ghost of slavery, and the impact of immigration.
