  • They Thought They Were Free by Milton Mayer
    They Thought They Were Free (English, Paperback) Milton Mayer

    How do people become acclimated to fascism? What leads them down the slippery slope from rational intentions to atrocious actions?and how does that slope get greased? Milton Mayer's eloquent and provocative examination of the development of fascism among ten everyday Germans between 1933 and 1945 is still sobering?and more timely than ever. These ten men were average Germans who all became Nazis. But how? Mayer shows how the gradual habitation of people to a government that they do not feel they can predict, understand, or influence led to global catastrophe.

  • The Philosophical Hitchcock by Robert B. Pippin
    The Philosophical Hitchcock (English, Hardback) Robert B. Pippin

    On the surface, The Philosophical Hitchcock: Vertigo and the Anxieties of Unknowingness, is a close reading of Alfred Hitchcock's 1958 masterpiece Vertigo. This, however, is a book by Robert B. Pippin, one of our most penetrating and creative philosophers, and so it is also much more.

  • The Aeneid by Virgil
    The Aeneid (English, Hardback) Virgil, David Ferry

    Ten years ago, at the age of 82, David Ferry (b. 1924) began translating Virgil's epic, in between working on his other poems and translations. This new rendering, which is likely to supplant the current standard editions of the poem, recreates in immediate, forward moving, and rhythmic contemporary American English that ?sound-and-sense witchery, at once stately and debauched, of Virgil's Latin? (as noted by one of the Press's readers). It offers a new way into this timeless work for poetry lovers of all levels of knowledge and experience, and will be, without a doubt, the crowning achievement for the National Book Award-winning Ferry. The publication of a new Virgil for a new generation of readers will be an extraordinary event for American letters.
