Madame Melville
Premiered in London’s West End in 2000 and produced off-Broadway in 2001, this play about a 15-year-old American student in Paris, who one evening learns much about life from a seductive literature teacher, earned plaudits from the critics.

Bip in a Book

Kingdom of Children: Culture and Controversy in the Homeschooling Movement
Beyond a vague notion of children reading around the kitchen table, we don't know what home schooling looks like from the inside. Mitchell Stevens, assistant professor of sociology, goes behind the scenes of the homeschool movement and into the homes and meetings of home schoolers. What he finds are two very different kinds of home education--one rooted in the liberal alternative school movement of the 1960s and 1970s and one stemming from the Christian day school movement of the same era. Stevens explains how this dual history shapes the meaning and practice of home schooling today. More ...
The Free and Open Press: The Founding of American Democratic Press Liberty
Through a careful analysis of early libel law, the state and federal constitutions, and the Sedition Act crisis, Robert Martin, assistant professor of government, shows how the development of constitutionalism and civil liberties were bound up in the discussion of the "free and open press."  This book is a study of early American political thought and democratic theory, as seen through the revealing window provided by press liberty discouse. More ...
To Moscow, Not Mecca: The Soviet Campaign Against Islam in Central Asia, 1917-1941
The clash between Communism and Islam in the Soviet Union pitted two socio-political systems against one another, each proclaiming ultimate truth. Shoshana Keller, associate professor of history, examines the first decades of the struggle in Central Asia (1917-1941), where an ancient religious tradition faced an aggressive form of secular modernity. The Soviets attempted to break down Muslim culture and remold it on Marxist-Leninist lines. Despite Stalin's totalitarian aims, the Soviet regime in Central Asia was often weak even into the 1930s, and by 1941 the opposing systems had reached a standoff. More ...

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.
