Books, Journals & More

V43N15This annual University Times supplement recognizes faculty and staff who have written, edited and translated books, as well as those whose efforts have extended into other areas, such as journals, electronic publications, plays and musical compositions.

We regret that space constraints prohibit including other kinds of publications/creative endeavors. At the suggestion of a faculty advisory committee, we have included only items that were peer-reviewed: Anything identified as a self-published work was excluded. We also have limited listings to complete works, because individual chapters, articles, works of art  and poems would be too numerous.

Submissions are divided into three sections: Books, Journals and More. In each section, submissions are arranged according to school/unit, then listed alphabetically by title. Works are cross-listed when collaborators represent more than one Pitt unit. In instances where there are non-Pitt collaborators, the Pitt faculty or staff member is listed first.

Books, Journals & More was compiled by Barbara DelRaso.

Submissions in this year’s publication have a 2010 copyright or performance date.

The authors adopt a data management point of view to describe the system architectures of web databases and analyze the research issues related to caching and materialization in such architectures.

Impure Worlds: The Institution of Literature in the Age of the Novel

by Jonathan Arac, English.

This book reflects three decades of thinking about the connection between literature and the conditions of people’s lives — that is, politics. A preference for impurity and a search for how to analyze and explain it are guiding threads. This book pursues the complex entanglements of culture, politics and society from which great literature arises. At its core is the 19th-century novel, but it addresses a broader range of writers as well, in a textured, contoured, discontinuous history. Major writers discussed include Shakespeare, Dickens, Twain, Keats, Melville, George Eliot, Flaubert, Baudelaire and Ralph Ellison.

by Jon Hurwitz, political science, and Mark Peffley, University of Kentucky.

Drawing on data from a nationwide survey of both races, the authors tackle two important questions: What explains the widely differing perceptions, and why do such differences matter?

edited by Allan Gotthelf, history and philosophy of science; associate editor: James G. Lennox, history and philosophy of science.

University of Pittsburgh Press.

Philosopher-novelist Ayn Rand (1905–82) is a cultural phenomenon. Yet Rand’s work until recently has received little serious attention from academicians. This new series seeks a fuller scholarly understanding of this highly original and influential thinker. The chapters address the basis of her egoism in a virtue-centered normative ethics; her account of how moral norms in general are themselves based on a fundamental choice to value one’s own life, and how her own approach to the foundations of ethics is to be compared and contrasted with familiar approaches in the analytic ethical tradition.

Migrant Workers in Asia: Distant Divides, Intimate Connections

edited by Nicole Constable, anthropology.

Routledge Press.

This book provides comparative studies of South and Southeast Asian domestic workers who migrate to other parts of Asia and proposes new ways of mapping inter-Asian connections. The authors propose new themes, comparative frameworks and methodologies for considering vastly different degrees of social support structures and political activism, and the varied meanings of citizenship and state responsibility in sending and receiving countries. They highlight the importance of formal institutions that shape and promote migratory labor, advocacy for workers or curtail workers rights, as well as the social identities, cultural practices and beliefs that may be linked to new inter-ethnic social and political affiliations.

Anarchism and Syndicalism in the Colonial and Postcolonial World, 1870-1940: The Praxis of National Liberation, Internationalism and Social Revolution

edited by Steven Hirsch, behavioral sciences-history, and Lucien van der Walt, University of the Witwatersrand.


Narratives of anarchist and syndicalist history during the era of the first globalization and imperialism overwhelmingly have been constructed around a Western European tradition centered on discrete national cases. This parochial perspective typically ignores transnational connections and the contemporaneous existence of large and influential libertarian movements in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. Yet anarchism and syndicalism were conceived and developed as international movements. By focusing on the neglected cases of the colonial and postcolonial world, this volume underscores the worldwide dimension of these movements and their centrality in anti-colonial and anti-imperialist struggles.

First Amendment Law: Freedom of Expression and Freedom of Religion, 2nd Edition

by Arthur D. Hellman; William D. Araiza, Brooklyn Law School, and Thomas E. Baker, Florida International University.


The Tucson shootings generated a vigorous debate about the limits of free speech in America. This book provides the raw materials for considering the constraints on governmental regulation of expression and association imposed by the First Amendment to the Constitution. The organization and content of the book have been shaped by the authors’ belief that, from a lawyer’s perspective, the First Amendment is above all law, albeit a special kind of law. One thing that is special is that the law is found primarily in the decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court. Close analysis of those precedents is thus the principal tool that lawyers must use when seeking to persuade a judge or an adversary on behalf of a client. The overriding purpose of the book is to help students learn how to deploy that tool effectively.

Infinite Regress: The Theory and History of Varieties of Change

by Nicholas Rescher, philosophy and the Center for Philosophy of Science.


Regression addresses what has come before; it is a matter of looking backward, of retrospections. The motionless things of nature generally are forward-looking; their problem is that of the question: Where do we go from here? It is primarily with intelligent beings that we ask: How did we get to where we now find ourselves? Regression and infinite regression in particular is a concept that has gained a greater prominence in the human sciences than in the sciences of nature. Argumentation to infinite regress has long been a favored instrument of philosophical dialectic. Philosophers have used it to disprove the positions they model to criticize. Infinite regresses, so they reason, are unrealizable: They cannot be completed so as to achieve some definitive result. Thereby anything that would engender an infinite regress automatically is made ineffective. This book examines the theory of regression and includes information on the topics of vicious regress, innocuous regress, circularity regress and propositional regress. Also discussed is the history of regression. Some chapters focus on philosophers such as Immanuel Kant, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Bertrand Russell.

Philosophical Inquiries: An Introduction to Problems of Philosophy

by Nicholas Rescher, philosophy and the Center for Philosophy of Science.

University of Pittsburgh Press.

The author offers his perspectives on many of the foundational concerns of philosophy. He sees the need to inquire as an evolutionary tool for adapting to a hostile environment and shows how philosophy has developed in an evolutionary fashion, building upon acquired knowledge and upon itself. In a historical thread, Rescher recalls Aristotle, Plato, Plotinus, Kant, Hegel, Leibniz, Laplace, Bertrand Russell and others. Overall, he argues for philosophy as an unavoidable instrument for rational, cogent responses to large questions.

Reality and Its Appearance

by Nicholas Rescher, philosophy and the Center for Philosophy of Science.


The author aims to address the conceptual and analytical question: How does the concept of reality function and how should we think with regard to the issue of reality’s relations to appearances? The distinction between reality and its appearance is not a substantive distinction between two types of being, the author argues, but rather relates to different ways of understanding one self-same mode of being. The book proposes that while realism is a sensible and tenable position, there is something to be said for idealism as well. In the cognitive as in the moral life, perfection is beyond human grasp and there is no choice but to rest content with the best that can be achieved in practice. This perspective shifts the approach from a cognitive absolutism to a pragmatism that is prepared to come to terms with the limitations inherent in humans’ situations. On this basis the author defends a substantive realism that itself rests on a justificatory rationale of a decidedly pragmatic orientation.
