  • Introduction: Middle-Earth, The lord of the rings, and international relations
  • Order, justice, and Middle-Earth
  • Thinking about international relations and Middle-Earth
  • Middle-Earth and three great debates in international relations
  • Middle-Earth, levels of analysis, and war
  • Middle-Earth and feminist theory
  • Middle-Earth and feminist analysis of conflict
  • Middle-Earth as a source of inspiration and enrichment
  • Conclusion: international relations and our many worlds.
Based on their successful undergraduate course at the University of Southern California, Abigail E. Ruane and Patrick James provide an introduction to International Relations using J. R. R. Tolkien's fantastically popular trilogy "The Lord of the Rings." Because Tolkien's major themes---such as good versus evil and human agency versus determinism---are perennially relevant to International Relations, "The Lord of the Rings" is well suited for application to the study of politics in our own world. This innovative combination of social science and humanities approaches to illustrate key concepts engages students and stimulates critical thinking in new and exciting ways.

While the success of J. R. R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings is remarkable, it's certainly no mystery. In a culture where truth is relative and morality is viewed as "old-fashioned, " we eagerly welcome the message of these tales: we have free will, our choices matter, and truth can be known. Matthew Dickerson investigates the importance of free will and moral choices in Tolkien's Middle Earth, where moral victory, rather than military success, is the "real" story. He explores Christian themes throughout, including salvation, grace, and judgment. Following Gandalf will delight veteran Tolkien fans and offer new fans an impressive introduction to his major works. Engaging and theologically thought-provoking, it will interest pastors, students, seminarians, and layreaders.

"A high-tension, sexy, political thriller in which freelance CIA agent Malko Linge brings a project to his bosses that could blow open a ring of Russian spies operating in the United States. At a benefit dinner, Austrian playboy and CIA freelancer Malko Linge meets an intriguing woman, Zhanna Khrenkov, who has an unusual proposal. She will disclose everything she knows about her husband Alexei's business if Malko will get rid of Alexei's younger, British mistress. Appalled, Malko refuses--until Zhanna reveals her husband's real job: head of a ring of Russian spies operating undercover inside the U.S. For Malko's CIA contacts, this is a highly necessary job; for Malko, it is a highly sensitive one. He will move cautiously from Vienna to London to Moscow, trying to find the right balance of winning Zhanna's trust without compromising his moral integrity"-- Provided by publisher.

For generations of entranced readers, and now a new generation of filmgoers, Tolkien is synonymous with his most famous creation - the hobbit. Written for all those who are interested in Tolkien's work, and of course for all those interested in hobbits, this is the first book to focus on the changes made to the hobbits' characters not only by Tolkien but also by other artists - actors, writers, directors, lyricists and choreographers. The beloved characters of Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin have been much-adapted for radio, television, film and stage. Lynette Porter follows the hobbits through these many other lives, from Tolkien's on-page revisions and John Boorman's unmade screenplays, through to Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and its musical counterpart. She also reviews over 50 years of 'Hobbit Art', including the work of Alan Lee, John Howe and Ted Nasmith. Journeying through fanzines, videogames, Fanfiction and more, Porter demonstrates how the hobbits, their characters and their stories continue to introduce new audiences to Tolkien's work, in new and adapted forms.
