The study of literature and the environment evokes and promotes this highly original eco-critical collection and its contributions to evaluating the preservation of nature and human attachment and to situate it at a local, communitarian, or bio-regional level. Revisiting eco-literature can aid our exploration of numerous global issues and challenges through a literary rendition of the natural world in poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. Reflecting on different works will prompt the readers to intensify their search for viable and effective choices and healthy alternatives in a confusing world.

Eco-Aesthetics: Transnational Perspectives

Author: 

D'Cunha, Sr. Candy, Ken Saldanha, Editors

Credentials: 

Associate Professor of English, Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering and Technology (India)
Author of Keys of Life and Ecosophical Vision and Self-Realization in Margaret Atwood’s Prose

Eco-criticism, as explored in this volume edited by Sr. Candy D’Cunha, and co-edited by Ken Saldanha, begins with the concept of imagination, in other words, eco-aesthetics through which the power of words, stories, images, essence, and meaning are directly applied to environmental problems that afflict planet earth today. On the other hand, eco-criticism also concurs with the other branches of environmental humanities in the realm of history, ethics, anthropology, religious studies, and humanistic geography, among others.

Our Unfinished Biological Revolution

Author: 

Itzkoff, Seymour W.

Credentials: 

Professor Emeritus of Education, Smith College; Author of Humanity’s Evolutionary Destiny: A Darwinian Perspective

Seymour W. Itzkoff is one of the world’s leading intelligence researchers. His exciting new book Our Unfinished Biological Revolution offers a bold and highly original new study on the evolution of human intelligence from the origin of life to our times. With the help of evolutionary theory, Itzkoff explains the nature of human intelligence as we know it today. Most importantly, it demonstrates that evolution led to the rise of what intelligence researchers call the general intelligence factor: the human ability to plan ahead and solve problems for which natural selection did not prepare us.

Latvia's Ordeal: Nation Building in War and Revolution

Author: 

Zazerskaya, Tatiana Ph.D., St. Petersburg State University (Russia)

Based on research in Russian, French, and Belgian archives, Latvia’s Ordeal traces the complex story of Latvian state-building. Pinning hopes on the outcome of World War I, Latvia’s nationalist intelligentsia advocated self-determination and the establishment of a new state within ethnographic borders. Independence emerged in a complex domestic and international landscape. While part of Latvia’s ethnic territories were occupied by German troops, half of the population and much industry had been evacuated to the Russian interior.

Author: 

Crawford, Bethany

In Redefining Eternity: Interfacing Immortality in the Digital Corporate World, Bethany Crawford critically assesses the implications of “digital immortality” for central tenets of the human experience - such as consciousness, death, and time - as a preliminary mapping of the shifting existential paradigms of the digital age. This groundbreaking new book explores the social consequences and provocations of a digitally replicable subject in the current sociopolitical context.

Porter, Burton, Ph.D., University of Oxford, Professor of Philosophy, Western New England University

Credentials: 

Author of "Finding Your Own Philosophy of Life", "The Janus Face of Ideas: Which Way Should We Look?", and "Forbidden Knowledge: Things We Should Not Know"

We live in a time when disinformation is rampant across all media outlets, especially the new format of social media. This cynicism pervades advertising and marketing, government and politics, medicine and public health, as well as print, television, and radio journalism. Deliberate lies and expedient distortions, ad hominem attacks, and smearing implications prevail alongside honest news and accurate information.

Politics, Culture, and Origins in Nigeria: The Igbo and Their Nri Neighbors

Author: 

Nwaezeigwe, Nwankwo, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Senior Lecturer, Institute of African Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka

Nwankwo Nwaezeigwe’s revelatory study of the Igbo people and their Nri neighbors presents a paradigm shift in the interpretation of Igbo history and culture. British colonial ethnography held that the Nri, who form part of a larger Igbo subgroup named Umunri, are the scions of a remote historical kingdom that once ruled the entire Igbo land. It further advanced the thesis that before the coming of the Nri, the Igbo as an ethnic group had no culture defined as Igbo except what the Nri introduced to become what is defined today as Igbo culture.
