Jacobson, has accepted a tenure-track position at Westmont College. Peter S. Alagona shows how scientists and conservationists came to view the fates of endangered species as inextricable from ecological conditions and human activities in the places where those species lived. Focusing on the stories of four high-profile endangered species—the California condor, desert tortoise, Delta smelt, and San Joaquin kit fox—Alagona offers an absorbing account of how Americans developed a political system capable of producing and sustaining debates in which imperiled species serve as proxies for broader conflicts about the politics of place.
The challenge for conservationists in the twenty-first century, this book claims, will be to redefine habitat conservation beyond protected wildlands to build more diverse and sustainable landscapes.

SAR press page The histories and futures of indigenous peoples and salmon are inextricably bound across the vast ocean expanse and rugged coastlines of the North Pacific. Keystone Nations addresses this enmeshment and the marriage of the biological and social sciences that have led to the research discussed in this book. Salmon stocks and Indigenous peoples across the northern Pacific region represent a significance beyond their size in maintaining the viability and legitimacy of ecological and political systems. If wild salmon vanish in the North Pacific, as they largely have in the North Atlantic, their absence will herald the cascading failure of a complete marine system.
It is about Cynthia Nixon, whose 3rd-great-grandmother served time in the Missouri State Penitentiary in the s for murdering her alleged abusive husband.

I spent four hours with Nixon and the film crew in that unheated prison, and the result will be about 5 or 6 minutes of airtime for me, I expect. He kept a diary and wrote the book, pages worth, describing in detail the daily life of the prison including a horrific account of water boarding of prisoners.
DePalma Digeser reexamines the origins of the Great Persecution AD — , the last eruption of pagan violence against Christians before Constantine enforced the toleration of Christianity within the Empire. Making use of evidence that has only recently been dated to this period, Digeser shows that a falling out between Neo-Platonist philosophers, specifically Iamblichus and Porphyry, lit the spark that fueled the Great Persecution.
In the aftermath of this falling out, a group of influential pagan priests and philosophers began writing and speaking against Christians, urging them to forsake Jesus-worship and to rejoin traditional cults while Porphyry used his access to Diocletian to advocate persecution of Christians on the grounds that they were a source of impurity and impiety within the empire.

This volume examines the evolving role of the city and citizenship from classical Athens through fifth-century Rome and medieval Byzantium. Beginning in the first century CE, the universal claims of Hellenistic and Roman imperialism began to be challenged by the growing role of Christianity in shaping the primary allegiances and identities of citizens.
An international team of scholars considers the extent of urban transformation, and with it, of cultural and civic identity, as practices and institutions associated with the city-state came to be replaced by those of the Christian community. The twelve essays gathered here develop an innovative research agenda by asking new questions: What was the effect on political ideology and civic identity of the transition from the city culture of the ancient world to the ruralized systems of the middle ages?
How did perceptions of empire and oikoumene respond to changed political circumstances? How did Christianity redefine the context of citizenship? Although both the United States and the EU have succeeded in stabilizing their economies after the crash of , a return of speculation and bubbles, diverging economic development in the Euro Zone, high levels of public debt, economic stagnation, the threat of deflation, and a sharp increase in unemployment and social misery in many countries are among the lasting concerns in the aftermath of the crisis.
