Title: The Science of Sacrifice: American Literature and Modern Social Theory
Susan L. Mizruchi

Brand new books, dispatch from our warehouse in the UK
This text explores the fascination that sacrifice held for Americanwriters - principally Herman Melville, Henry James, and W.E.B. Du Bois - and also for those who articulated the main tenets of modern social theory. The author aims to demonstrate how the conceptual power of sacrifice made it a key mediator of cultural change, from the decline of sympathy and the significance of "race" in an emerging multi-cultural society to the revival of maternal self-sacrifice.
