Edgar Allan Poe (Bloom's Modern Critical Views) Book: Edgar Allan Poe is unique for being at once so firmly entrenched within the American literary tradition and yet so questionable in the eyes of the very critics whose attentions strengthened his position. Harold Bloom wonders if Poe's longevity suggests that literary merit and canonical status aren't inseparable.

Climate Change, Ethics and Human Security Book: Presenting human security perspectives on climate change, this volume raises issues of equity, ethics and environmental justice, as well as our capacity to respond to what is increasingly considered to be the greatest societal challenge for humankind. Written by international experts, it argues that climate change must be viewed as an issue of human security, and not an environmental problem that can be managed in isolation from larger questions concerning development trajectories, and ethical obligations towards the poor and to future generations. The concept of human security offers a new approach to the challenges of climate change, and the responses that could lead to a more equitable and sustainable future. Climate Change, Ethics and Human Security will be of interest to researchers, policy makers, and practitioners concerned with the human dimensions of climate change, as well as to upper-level students in the social sciences and humanities interested in climate change.

Counterfeit Amateurs Book: Allen Sack's book, Counterfeit Amateurs, is an insightful, first-hand account of the problems in intercollegiate sport. Sack masterfully intertwines his experiences as an athlete at Notre Dame with the problems facing collegiate sport today. He is able to go from the past to the present seemlessly and presents evidence that the the world of intercollegiate sport has become big business with a focus on commercialization and making money and away from the athletes who are producing the revenue.

Illness in Context Book: This book is a contribution to humanistic studies of illness. Medical humanities are by nature cross-disciplinary, and in recent years studies in this field have been recognized as a platform for dialogue between the "two cultures" of the natural sciences and the humanities. Illness in Context is a result of an encounter of several disciplines, including medicine, history and literature. The main stress is on the literary perspectives of the interdisciplinary collaboration. The reading practices highlighting the clinical, phenomenological and archeological approaches to illness take as their point of departure the living text, that is, the literary experience mediated and created by the text. Literature is seen not solely as a medium for the representation of experiences of illness, but also as a historical praxis involved in the forging of our common understanding of illness. In contrast to traditional literary analysis - primarily oriented toward the interpretation of the literary work's meaning - the project will emphasize description and understanding of how literature itself performs as a means of interpretation of reality. The target group for this book comprises professionals in the various disciplines, and students of health and culture. The ambition is to contribute to teaching in humanistic illness research, and function as a topical resource book that formulates controversial problems in the crucial meeting of medicine and the humanities.

Eight chapters cover all relevant aspects of SNOBOL and each contains example programs and a set of exercises. Chapter 9 introduces SPITBOL, a commonly-used superset of SNOBOL.
