Okay, it’s only just barely started pretending to be spring here in New England, which means our handsome fall catalog is out and about. It’s a strong list for political and moral philosophy, led off by Martha Nussbaum’s Political Emotions: Why Love Matters for Justice, and Ronald Dworkin’s final book, Religion without God. Howard Eiland and Michael Jennings, who’ve done so much to bring Walter Benjamin’s writings to English-language readers, now offer the first full critical biography of Benjamin in any language. The Falling Sky is the remarkable story of the endangered Brazilian Yanomami people, told by a shaman who’s become their global ambassador. Estelle Freedman documents how America’s changing definition of rape has depended on dynamics of political power and social privilege. John Lukacs gives us A Short History of the Twentieth Century. And that gets us through page nine.
