Author: 

Shienbaum, Professor Kim and Jamal Hasan, Editors

Credentials: 

D/Politics, Rutgers University

This collection of non Western scholarly voices is a long awaited remedy to the lack of critical commentary by Muslim intellectuals on the nature of modern Jihadi terrorism and the political debate within Islam over the direction of resistance to modernization and secularization of traditional societies.

The work is divided into three parts:

1) Understanding the Islamist Mind
2) Understanding Islamism and Politics
3) Beyond Jihad: Expanding the Circle of Sanity

Edmund Burke on Irish Affairs

Author: 

Janes, Regina

Credentials: 

Ph.D. Harvard, Professor of English Skidmore College

Edmund Burke, the great British statesman, had a long and uncomfortable relationship with Ireland beginning with the circumstances of his birth: He was born an Irishman. As a conservative thinker, as a fierce critic of revolutionary movements and political terrorism, He hoped to knead a British nation from imperial fragments, disparate and fissiparous polities and marginal nonanglophone kingdoms and duchies. This monograph by a distinguished researcher in Burkean language and thought deals with Burke’s attempts to redefine Ireland an integral part of Britain.

An Idler: John Hay’s Social and Aesthetic Commentaries for the Press During the Civil War, 1861 - 1865

Author: 

Hill, Douglas Warren

Credentials: 

Ph.D; Professor of History, University of Maryland; Foreword: Professor Helmut Relsig

John Hay’s distinguished national service began when he was Lincohn’s private secretary and continued until up to his death as Secretary of State for two presidents. For a public man under scrutiny (including numerous biographies and Henry Adam’s insightful portrait in THE EDUCATION OF HENRY ADAMS) little is known about Hay and his anonymous commentaries, reviews and critiques written during the Civil War. Dr. Hill’s new monograph remedies that situation.
