A Place in the Sun: Green Living and the Solar Home
A Place in the Sun showcases two dozen inspiring homes from across the country that are well-appointed, stunning, and filled inside and out- with green materials, design, and decor. These environmentally responsible, perfectly designed solar-powered homes, here sumptuously photographed, will inspire readers to see their homes as places that can blend sustainability and beauty. The book vividly demonstrates that living green doesn't have to be about sacrificing comfort and living with less. Incisive, clearly written text offers profiles of the featured houses through interviews with the homeowners and includes extensive practical information in sidebars covering everything from green decorating and earth-friendly remodeling to healthy home tips and shopping resources. This is not a how to book, but it will feature extensive details about how and why each homeowner achieved the dream of green living. The reader will benefit from practical advice derived from the experience of homeowners, builders, and architects, who have all achieved the dream of creating not only a solar home but a home that is green inside and out.

End-of-Art Philosophy in Hegel, Nietzsche and Danto
This book examines the little understood end-of-art theses of Hegel, Nietzsche, and Danto. The end-of-art claim is often associated with the end of a certain standard of taste or skill. However, at a deeper level, it relates to a transformation in how we philosophically understand our relation to the `world'. Hegel, Nietzsche, and Danto each strive philosophically to overcome Cartesian dualism, redrawing the traditional lines between mind and matter. Hegel sees the overcoming of the material in the ideal, Nietzsche levels the two worlds into one, and Danto divides the world into representing and non-representing material. These attempts to overcome dualism necessitate notions of the self that differ significantly from traditional accounts; the redrawn boundaries show that art and philosophy grasp essential but different aspects of human existence. Neither perspective, however, fully grasps the duality. The appearance of art's end occurs when one aspect is given priority: for Hegel and Danto, it is the essentialist lens of philosophy, and, in Nietzsche's case, the transformative power of artistic creativity. Thus, the book makes the case that the end-of-art claim is avoided if a theory of art links the internal practice of artistic creation to all of art's historical forms.

Fictions of Desire: Narrative Form in the Novels of Nagai Kafu
The literary career of Nagai Kafu is generally seen as an act of nostalgia, the quintessential return to Japan in the form of a long search for the traditional past in a rapidly modernizing Tokyo. Kafu is best known as a lyrical writer of elegies to a vanished Tokyo, whose work is stylistically rich yet lacks intellectual depth. Rather than focus on the writer's lyricism and imagery as other critics have done before him, the author examines Kafu's fiction in terms of narrative strategy, placing him squarely within some of the most important currents of literary modernism - at the nexus of naturalism and the largely antithetical development of the modernist reflexive novel. Snyder argues persuasively that Kafu both learned from and ultimately parodied the naturalists, thus creating a kind of self-conscious fiction, which rather than attempting the naturalist strategy of presenting real life , draws attention to its very fictionality and the central place of language in narrative.
