Adam Smith published The Theory of Moral Sentiments in 1759 and
established the ethical foundation for The Wealth of Nations (1776) as
well as the important role played by custom and fashion in shaping
behaviors and outcomes. Kendall P. Cochran believed in Smith’s emphasis
on value-driven analysis and seeking solutions to major problems of the
day. Cochran believed that economists moved too far in the direction of
analysis free of words like ought and should and devoted his career to
establishing that economics is a moral science.
Enemies Within traces the discourse of hostility, hysteria, and global
threat that links the literature and film of the cold war era with that
of the AIDS era. Not only the political and biological illnesses
themselves but also the fear and panic they engender are the “plagues”
with which Jacqueline Foertsch is concerned in this wide-ranging study.
Haj Ross is an almost completely unpublished poet, and a completely
amateur artist. However, since around 1970, when he discovered blending
colors with artist markers, he has done more painting than poeming. In
this book, he has tried to let these two of his art forms talk to, and
look like, each other.

“I could see, floating in the air, the lifeguards attempting to
resuscitate a lifeless body; it was mine.” “I saw a bright light that
asked me, in a life review, what I have done in my life for love and
learning.” “I felt peace and no fear of death.”
These are words of those who “died” temporarily and reported how they
felt when they returned from the “other side.”

In El valor literario del Lázaro de 1555, the author shows that this
continuation of the Segunda parte del Lazarillo de Tormes can be
properly classified as a picaresque novel, and not just in the tradition
of the Lucianesque satirical genre, given the many characteristics of
the pícaro that Lázaro de Tormes presents as well as the structural
elements of the novel itself.
