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: Oxford University Press, 2020. 288p. Hardback. The Irish Buddhist captures a time of significant change and enterprise, one which easily resonates with the world of today. The subtitle of the book is The Forgotten Monk Who Faced Down the British Empire and this biography is a fascinating, informative insight into a wonderful character who, without a decade worth of joint research, may well have been lost to the great ocean of the past.

    • Bibliographic details: Oxford University Press, 2020. 400p. Hardback. Series: Oxford Studies in Early Empires. Overtoom's study of the rise of the Parthian Empire brings a new perspective to this important development in the history of the Hellenistic Middle East. By emphasizing the changing international-systems elements that led to the expansion of the Arsacid kings, Overtoom allows scholars to develop a more sophisticated view of how this expansion occurred, with less causal emphasis merely on the warlike nature of Parthian society or the personalities of individual rulers - important though these were.

    • Bibliographic details: Oxford University Press, 2019. 160p. Hardback. William G. Lycan has written a short but action-packed book about why philosophical arguments don't establish skeptical or radically revisionary claims concerning the nature of reality or our capacities as knowers and agents. A terrific volume, it is sure to annoy or maybe even infuriate many philosophers who think highly of their own arguments. . . . Here is a philosopher who is deeply reflective, self-critical, and able to impart insights with concision and wit. I recommend the book to all philosophers interested in methodology, skepticism, a...
