The Art of Kiltmaking
Kiltmaking methods have remained essentially the same for over a century. Making a kilt will put you in touch not only with Scottish tradition but with a tailoring and hand sewing tradition that has been almost entirely lost as we begin the 21st century. Barbara Tewksbury, professor of geology and kiltmaker, has teamed up with legendary kiltmaker Elsie Stuehmeyer to create a book that teachers the traditional kiltmaking methods that Elsie learned 50 years ago as an apprentice and kiltmaker with the renowned firm Thomas Gordon's of Glasglow.

Looking Down the Road: A Systems Approach to Future Studies
The ability to look ahead and to treat abstractions as serious business is a skill we all need to cultivate. So states Douglas Raybeck professor of anthropology, and author of Looking Down the Road, a compelling short work by involving the grand, if frustrating, human preoccupation with prediction. Raybeck supplies readers with some of the tools and ideas they will need as they attempt to forecast developments that are apt to characterize future society. More ...
China's Leaders: The New Generation
Who will govern China at the dawn of the twenty-first century?  What are the social backgrounds and career paths of the new generation of leaders?  How do they differ from their predecessors in their responses to perplexing economic and sociopolitical challenges?  Drawing upon a wealth of both quantitative and qualitative data on the so-called fourth generation of leaders-those who where young during the Cultural Revolution-Cheng Li, professor of government, sheds valuable light on these key questions. More ...
Rediscovering China: Dynamics and Dilemmas of Reform

The Other American: The Life of Michael Harrington
Most Americans first heard of Michael Harrington with the publication of The Other America, his seminal book on American poverty. Maurice Isserman, professor of history, expertly tracks Harrington's beginnings in the Catholic Worker movement, his abandonment of his once deeply-held Catholicism, his life in 1950s Greenwich Village, and his evolution as a thinker. Isserman explains why Harrington, who more than any other single individual seemed perfectly positioned to play the role of adult mentor to the New Left in the 1960s, instead fell into disfavor with young campus activists, and lost the opportunity of a lifetime to make his democratic Socialist perspective a relevant force in American politics. More ...
America Divided: The Civil War of the 1960s
Arguing that the period marked the end of the country's two-century-long ascent toward widespread affluence, domestic consensus, and international hegemony, the authors, Maurice Isserman professor of history and Michael Kazin, take students on a tour of the turbulent decade, exploring what did and did not change in the 1960s and why American culture and politics have never been the same since. More ...
Buddhism in America
With a history stretching back to ancient India, Buddhism has influenced American culture since the American Transcendentalist movement in the 1830s and the 40's. Only in the past few decades, however, has this transplanted philosophy begun to blossom into a full-fledged American religion, made up of three broad groups: a burgeoning Asian immigrant population, numerous native-born converts, and old-line Asian American Buddhists. In Buddhism in America, religious historian and associate professor of religious studies , Richard Seager offers a perceptive and engaging portrait of the communities, institutions, practices, and individuals that are integral to the contemporary Buddhist landscape. More ...
The Unsteady March
Although Americans would like to believe otherwise, our nation's commitment to racial equality has never been consistent, nor has it been irresistibly driven forward by America's founding principles.  Philip Klinkner, associate professor of government, disproves the idea that the United States has been on a "steady march" toward the end of racial discrimination. Rather, progress has been made only in brief periods, under special conditions, and it has always been followed by periods of stagnation and retrenchment. More ...
Navigate the Noise: Investing in the New Age of Media and Hype
Transform today's surplus of investment information into a high-level investment strategy. In an investment climate characterized by rapidly increasing access to information, it has become a real problem to sort out the legitimate financial advice, grounded in traditional analysis, from the constant stream of useless information, or "noise." Such "noise", through technological advances such as the Internet, has become widespread. This overload of information is hurting investors, since it makes real analysis based on factual inference harder to come by. This book steers investors through the "noise" to show them where and how to find solid investment information. This step-by-step guide is based on a very popular presentation the author makes to new private clients at Merrill Lynch. More ...
