M NEW BOOKS
Modern books can easily be recognised because they are very recently published and are available at bookshops, newsagents, supermarkets, etc., but the characteristic that still distinguishes them today is the so-called ISBN code.
Introduced in Italy in 1977, the code uniquely identifies a particular book, and is essential for distribution, thanks to its inclusion within the EAN.
So-called 'out-of-commerce books' (just think of all books published at one's own expense by private individuals or by institutions such as banking foundations) do not display such a code.

    • Bibliographic details: L'area alpina occidentale considerata coincide con la macroregione che attorno ai massicci del Mercantour/Argentera, del Pelvoux, del Gran Paradiso, del Monte Bianco/Monte Rosa e delle Prealpi del Delfinato e della Savoia - si sviluppa lungo l'asse nord/sud che collega Ginevra a Tolone e quello est/ovest tracciabile fra Torino e Grenoble. Per tutto il Medioevo i costanti contatti fra i due versanti alpini sono assicurati dai valichi che già nell'Antichità mettevano in comunicazione le località delle Alpi occidentali con la Cisalpina e le Gallie.

    • Bibliographic details: Cambridge University Press, 2010. 224p. Paperback. Series: Cambridge Texts in the History of Philosophy. John Locke's Letter Concerning Toleration (1689) is one of the most widely-read texts in the political theory of toleration, and a key text for the liberal tradition. However, Locke also defended toleration more extensively in three subsequent Letters, which he wrote in response to criticism by an Anglican cleric, Jonas Proast. This edition, which includes a new translation of the original Letter, by Michael Silverthorne, enables readers to assess John Locke's theory of toleration by stu... Read more

    • Bibliographic details: Cambridge University Press, 2019. 282p. Hardback. Series: Cambridge Introductions to Key Philosophical Texts. Nietzsche's The Gay Science (1882/1887) is a deeply personal book, yet also an important work of philosophy. Nietzsche conceives it as a philosophical autobiography, a record of his own self-transformation. In beautifully composed aphorisms he communicates his central experience of overcoming pessimism and recovering the capacity to affirm joyfully the tragedy of life. On the basis of his experiments in living, Nietzsche articulates his most famous philosophical concepts and images:... Read more

Timmins provides a close rereading of Romans 7 within its literary-argumentative context and offers a fresh and compelling solution to the identity of the 'I' in this text. Challenging existing paradigms, which fail to provide both literary coherence and theological plausibility, he develops his own positive theory about the device. Along the way he also re-examines a number of key texts within the letter, which have hitherto not been given due weight wit... Read more

This Introduction celebrates the achievement of Shakespeare as a poet, providing students with ways of understanding and enjoying his remarkable poems. It honours the aesthetic and intellectual complexity of the poems without making them seem unapproachably complicated, outlining their exquisite pleasures and absorbing enigmas. Schoen... Read more

What has fifteenth-century England to do with the Renaissance? By challenging accepted notions of 'medieval' and 'early modern' David Rundle proposes a new understanding of English engagement with the Renaissance. He does so by focussing on one central element of the humanist agenda - the reform of the script and of the book more generally - to demonstrate a tradition of engagement from the 1430s into the early sixteenth century. Introducing a cast-list of scribes and collectors w... Read more

    • Bibliographic details: Cambridge University Press, 2019. 200p. Hardback. Series: Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics. In 399 BC Socrates was prosecuted, convicted, sentenced to death and executed. These events were the culmination of a long philosophical career, a career in which, without writing a word, he established himself as the figure whom all philosophers of the next few generations wished to follow. The Apologies (or Defence Speeches) by Plato and Xenophon are rival accounts of how, at his trial, Socrates defended himself and his philosophy. This edition brings together both Apologies within a single volum... Read more

    • Bibliographic details: Cambridge University Press, 2014. 376p. Paperback. Series: Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics. For eight centuries after his death Menander was the third most popular poet in the Greek-speaking world, and his plays, through Roman imitations and adaptations, engendered a tradition of European light drama that extends to our own day. But it is only since 1844 that some of the actual texts of Menander's plays have been rediscovered, mostly in Egyptian papyri. Two of these have given us four-fifths of the script of Samia (The Woman from Samos), a play of deception and misunderstanding in which ... Read more
