Like AXE For Your Brain: New Books in Graduate Services in August

Well, another school year is here and another batch of new books in Graduate Services waiting to greet you as you return from your drunken summer in Ibiza. Or was it Myconos? Anyway, it doesn’t matter. The important thing is you made it back and Graduate Services has books for you to sidle up to. Remember, they are what will help you get through this program and to that degree. I’m taking Fahrenheit here, not Celsius. But don’t sweat the dog days of summer this semester, just come on around and let the knowledge be attracted to you: Modern Persian Literature; the idea of communism; subjegated animals; Italian colonalism; the crisis of imprisonment; the Bosnian, Croatian, and Serbian language; the power of religion in the public sphere; the literature of uncounted experience; or the Hegel dictionary. It’s your choice. You’re here. You’re the scholar. Graduate Services: It’s like AXE for your brain. Enjoy.
