              For years the prevailing view among scholars has been that postcolonial Australia is an undifferentiated composite of Anglo-Celtic culture, in which English, Irish, Welsh, and Scottish components quickly fused into a singular culture. But based on extensive field research, this s...tudy questions that view: the authors' compilation of data from 13,271 tombstones revealing the birth place of the interred, from 565 graveyards throughout Australia, shows point-to-point and shire-to-shire migration from the British Isles to Australia. As a result, they also uncover Australia's distinct regional clusters of specific groups from the British Isles2;and the differences of religion, dialect, urbanization, and agriculture that accompany them.

              Waiting for the Mahatma

              R.K. Narayan . . . has been compared to Gogol in England, where he has acquired a well-deserved reputation. The comparison is apt, for Narayan, an Indian, is a writer of Gogol's stature, with the same gift for creating a provincial atmosphere in a time of change. . . . One is con...vincingly involved in this alien world without ever being aware of the technical devices Narayan so brilliantly employs. --Anthony West, The New Yorker The experience of reading one of his novels is . . . comparable to one's first reaction to the great Russian novels: the fresh realization of the common humanity of all peoples, underlain by a simultaneous sense of strangeness--like one's own reflection seen in a green twilight. --Margaret Parton, New Herald Tribune Book Review The hardest of all things for a novelist to communicate is the extraordinary ordinariness of most human happiness. . . . Jane Austen, Soseki, Chekhov: a few bring it off. Narayan is one of them. --Francis King, Spectator The novels of R.K. Narayan are the best I have read in any language for a long time. --Amit Roy, Daily Telegraph

              A Father's Words: A Novel
               

              A Father's Words: A Novel (Paperback, New edition)

              Cy Riemer--fifty-ish, divorced, and father of four--surveys the dispersal of his family with a mixture of anxiety, humor, sadness, and pride. In this wry, moving, and wise novel, Richard Stern offers his masterful portrait of Cy as the quintessential caring yet controlling parent..., a relentless seeker of self-knowledge whose search is intensified through conflicts with his brilliant, ne'er-do-well son Jack. The manipulation of a smart, sane, self-justifying narrator . . . is not the least of Stern's achievements in this delicate fabrication of tough prose and tender adjustment of sentiment. --Geoffrey Wolff, Los Angeles Times Richard Stern's novels are robustly intelligent, very funny, and beguilingly humane. He knows as much as anyone writing American prose about family mischief, intellectual shenanigans, love blunders--and about writing American prose. --Philip Roth A delectable rhetorical display. . . . -- The New Yorker Anyone who has read Richard Stern's previous novels won't need to be told he is an unusually crisp and intelligent writer, with a sharp edge to his wit; and in A Father's Words he runs true to form. Many of the book's pleasures are incidental: jokes, intellectual cadenzas, agile turns of phrase . . . The author's powers of farcical invention climax in a brilliant, bitter episode where . . . the younger man proclaims his final failure . . . Mr. Stern has written an excellent novel. --John Gross, New York Times Richard Stern is American letters' unsung comic writer about serious matters . . . A Father's Words ] produced in this reviewer an apostolic desire to convince a wider audience to try Stern, especially the vintage Stern. --DorisGrumbach, Chicago Tribune

              In 17th century France, aristocratic women were valued by their families as commodities to be married off in exchange for money, social advantage, or military alliance. The Duchesse de Montpensier was one of the few exceptions, as this collection of her letters demonstrates.

              In Plurality and Ambiguity, David Tracy lays the philosophical groundwork for a practical application of hermeneutics, while constructing an innovative model of theological interpretation developed out of the notions of conversation and argument. He concludes with an appraisal of... the religious significance of hope in an age of radically different voices and constantly shifting meanings.
