How Can We Know the Dancer From the Dance?: New Books in Graduate Services for September

A number of books made their way to Graduate Services this September to celebrate the first full month of the Fall 2010 semester. Come celebrate with them by letting your fingers not only do the walking, but a bit of dancing over these crisp new pages. There are books for everyone on the new books shelf this month. Are you into American Theatre? Well we got you covered with some plays by Arthur Miller. This guy was married to Marilyn Monroe. Death of a Salesman? More like Death of a Ladies’ Man if you ask me. But you didn’t, so whatever. If you are into French Critical Theorists, we got a bunch of books from Jean Luc-Nancy plus the new one from his buddy Jacques Ranciere, Dissensus: On Politics and Aesthetics. Don’t know what Dissensus means, well read this book and find out. What’s more, the latest from the Foucault vault came in: The Government of Self and Others: Lectures at the College De France, 1982-83. Trust me, if you haven’t read any of the lectures in this series yet, you have not heard lectures about biopolitics as lectures about biopolitics were meant to be heard. Yes please I say. There are some new editons of works by the old guard if that is who you are eyeing for a partner this semester. Boethius, Vicco, Nietzsche, and Kierkegaard. There are also some books by the guard that have been around awhile and are still here such as Terry Eagleton, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, and Slavoj Zizek if that is what you are looking for. Some straight up fiction from our Modern Authors Collection you say? Step right up and get your read on with Alice Walker, Louis SImpson, Joyce Carol Oates, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Rebecca West. And if you want to keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars, let me introduce you to Sidereus Nuncius or The Sidereal Messager by Galileo Galilei. If you have put the reading behind you this semester and are looking to dance with the pen or keyboard, let the fifth editon of the Handbook for Academic Authors by Beth Luey guide you to your own tune. On one of the books below is dedicated to Henry Kissenger. I’ll give you a hint: It rhymes with Don Knievel and backwards spells out live no. And it pretty much sums up Kissenger. Enjoy.
