Volume 8 Number 4
"Thanks for making 'Peaceful persuasion: the geopolitics of nonviolent rhetoric' (Ellen W. Gorsevski; SUNY Press 2004) available. I need a chapter of it for my Practicum in Teaching Seminar this fall because a third of our English 101 course is about nonviolence and how to write about it, and I want the instructors to have some acquaintance with the rhetoric of non-violence". (Dr. Mili Clark, Associate Professor of English, University at Buffalo)
Content is king. Full-text is emperor. The SUNY Digital Repository is of growing importance to SUNYConnect. One of the main reasons for this is the expanding collection of SUNY Press books housed there. Housed electronically, in full-text, that is.
The collection encompasses the contents of 628 titles. Most recently 150+ texts were added representing a significant portion of SUNY Press' available 2005-2006 imprints. Including:
"An Islamic philosophy of virtuous religions : introducing
Alfarabi" (Joshua Parens)
MaRC records for these titles are available through the Footprints system (issue #3011). Access to the SUNY Press collection (in the SUNY Digital Repository) is restricted to members of the SUNY community (via a SUNY/SUNYConnect IP address).
Celebrating its 40th year, SUNY Press "publishes scholarly and trade books in support of the State University of New York’s commitments to teaching, research, and public service. With an editorial board made up of SUNY faculty from throughout the state, SUNY Press has a large catalog, featuring authors from around the world.
"From a modest beginning in 1966, SUNY Press has become one of the largest public university presses in the United States, with an annual output of around 200 books and a backlist of more than 3400 titles. The Press publishes chiefly in the humanities and social sciences, and has attained national recognition in the areas of education, philosophy, religion, Jewish studies, Asian studies, political science, and sociology, with increasing growth in the areas of literature, film studies, communication, women's studies, and environmental studies."
