Celebrating the fortieth anniversary of this seminal book, this new edition includes an illuminating foreword by Carlos Eire and Ronald K. Rittges The seeds of the swift and sweeping religious movement that reshaped European thought in the 1500s were sown in the late Middle Ages. In this book, Steven Ozment traces the growth and dissemination of dissenting intellectual trends through three centuries to their explosive burgeoning in the Reformations—both Protestant and Catholic—of the sixteenth century. He elucidates with great clarity the complex philosophical and theological issues that inspired antagonistic schools, traditions, and movements from Aquinas to Calvin. This masterly synthesis of the intellectual and religious history of the period illuminates the impact of late medieval ideas on early modern society. With a new foreword by Carlos Eire and Ronald K. Rittgers, this modern classic is ripe for rediscovery by a new generation of students and scholars.

This study focuses on the state system and the problem of ocean degradation as practiced in the West, specifically the Western industrial market economies. The author locates the source of the ecological problem in the allocation of power and values in a society, the differing public policies in response to divergent appreciations on the nature of social challenges and appropriate responses. This book is a valuable contribution to the collective efforts to educate the public about the worsening global crisis. His approach combines biology, chemistry and political science in its discussion of the tragic destruction of our oceans. Contents: The Evolution of the Contemporary State System; Theoretical Aspects of the Current State System; The Physical State of the Ocean and the Pollution Crisis; The Contribution of Intergovernmental Organizations; INGOs and Cetacean Protection; Conclusions.
