The Word according to Eve : women and the Bible in ancient times and our own by Cullen Murphy( Book )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 1,480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the world that created the Bible, there were no female scholars and theologians; yet since World War II, owing to such stunning discoveries as the Dead Sea Scrolls and the Nag Hammadi texts and to advances in historical understanding, a new generation of scholars has found new ways of reading the Scriptures - including querying the role that male divines have traditionally assigned to women, both those who populate the Bible and those living in the modern world. Surveying the new scholarship and the personalities of those who have created it, The Word According to Eve not only explores afresh the history of our religions but offers exciting new challenges to our sense of worship
Are we Rome? : the fall of an empire and the fate of America by Cullen Murphy( Book )
11 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The rise and fall of ancient Rome has been on American minds from the beginning of our Republic. Depending on who's doing the talking, the history of Rome serves either as a triumphal call to action, or a dire warning of imminent collapse. Esteemed editor and author Murphy ventures past the pundits' rhetoric to draw nuanced lessons about how we might avoid Rome's demise. Working on a canvas that extends far beyond the issue of an overstretched military, Murphy reveals a wide array of similarities between the two empires: the blinding, insular culture of our capitals; the debilitating effect of corruption; the paradoxical issue of borders; and the weakening of the body politic through various forms of "privatization." Most pressingly, he argues that we most resemble Rome in the burgeoning corruption of our government and in our arrogant ignorance of the world outside--two things that are in our power to change.--From publisher description

Program #774: "Title: An Age of Uncertainty. The tense balance of power that shaped the Cold War's delicate political arrangements has long since vanished.

The security that the United States seeks will depend upon its response to phenomena like terrorism and the challenge of globalization. Above all, America will need to integrate its vast resources domestically and international to achieve success. Lee Hamilton explains how." --Track sheet

Prince Valiant by Harold R Foster( Book )
in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Universally acclaimed as the most stunningly gorgeous adventure comic strip of all time, Prince Valiant ran for 35 years under the virtuoso pen of its creator, Hal Foster. (Such was its popularity that today, decades after Foster's death, it continues to run under different hands.) The giant Sunday-funnies pages (Valiant ran only on Sundays) gave Foster a huge canvas upon which he was able to limn epic swordfights, stunning scenes of pomp and pageantry, and some of the most beautiful human beings-- male and female-- ever to appear in comics. And he matched his nonpareil visual sense with the narrative instincts of a born storyteller, propelling his daring young hero from one crisis to another with barely a panel to catch one's breath. Prince Valiant has previously been widely available only in re-colored, somewhat degraded editions (now out of print and fetching collectors' prices). Thanks to advances in production technology and newly available original proof sheets, this new series from the industry leader in quality strip classics is the first to feature superb restored artwork that captures every delicate line and chromatic nuance of Foster's original masterpiece. Comic strip aficionados will be ecstatic, and younger readers who enjoy a classic adventure yarn will be bowled over"--Publisher's web site
