Volume 11 brings together all of Dewey's writings for 1918 and 1919. A Modern Language Association Committee on Scholarly Editions textual edition. Dewey's dominant theme in these pages is war and its after-math. In the Introduction, Oscar and Lilian Handlin discuss his philosophy within the historical context: The First World War slowly ground to its costly conclusion; and the immensely more difficult task of making peace got painfully under way. The armi-stice that some expected would permit a return to normalcy opened instead upon a period of turbulence that agitated fur-ther a society already unsettled by preparations for battle and by debilitating conflict overseas. After spending the first half of 1918-19 on sabbatical from Columbia at the University of California, Dewey traveled to Japan and China, where he lectured, toured, and assessed in his essays the relationship between the two nations. From Peking he reported the student revolt known as the May Fourth Move-ment. The forty items in this volume also include an analysis of Thomas Hobbe's philosophy; an affectionate commemorative tribute to Theodore Roosevelt, our Teddy; the syllabus for Dewey's lectures at the Imperial University in Tokyo, which were later revised and published as Reconstruction in Philosophy; an exchange with former disciple Randolph Bourne about F. Mat-thias Alexander's Man's Supreme Inheritance; and, central to Dew-ey's creed, Philosophy and Democracy. His involvement in a study of the Polish-American community in Philadelphia--resulting in an article, two memoranda, and a lengthy report--is discussed in detail in the Introduction and in the Note on the Confidential Report ofConditions among the Poles in the United States.

Except for Dewey's and James H. Tufts' 1932 Ethics (Volume 7 of The Later Works), this volume brings together Dewey's writings for 1931-1932. The Great Depression presented John Dewey and the American people with a series of economic, political, and social crises in 1931 and 1932 that are reflected in most of the 86 items in this volume, even in philosophical essays such as "Human Nature." As Sidney Ratner points out in his Introduction, Dewey's interest in international peace is fea tured in the writings in this volume.

With tremendous growth over the last five years, mechanochemistry has become one of the most important topics in current polymer science research. With a particular focus on polymers and soft materials, Mechanochemistry in Materials looks at the subject from the application of macroscopic forces to solid systems of macroscopic dimensions. The book has been divided according to length scale covering both experimental and theoretical considerations simultaneously. The first section of the book focuses on inspiration from nature, exploring and explaining multiple biological phenomena. The second section discusses molecular mechanochemistry, including the theoretical understanding of the transduction of mechanical force and its impact on covalent bonds cleavage and formation. The final section considers the implementation of these phenomena at the mesoscale and discusses the use of supramolecular/reversible aspects with similarities to biological systems. The book provides a unique comparison with natural systems and contains all the important achievements in the area from the last decade. Appealing to a broad range of materials scientists, working in industry and academia, this well-presented and comprehensive title will be essential reading for researchers.

Art as Experience evolved from John Dewey's Willam James Lectures, delivered at Harvard University from February to May 1931. In his Introduction, Abraham Kaplan places Dewey's philosophy of art within the context of his pragmatism. Kaplan demonstrates in Dewey's esthetic theory his traditional "movement from a dualism to a monismEURO and discusses whether Dewey's viewpoint is that of the artist, the respondent, or the critic.

John Dewey's Experience and Nature has been considered the fullest expression of his mature philosophy since its eagerly awaited publication in 1925. Irwin Edman wrote at that time that "with monumental care, detail and completeness, Professor Dewey has in this volume revealed the metaphysical heart that beats its unvarying alert tempo through all his writings, whatever their explicit themes." In his introduction to this volume, Sidney Hook points out that "Dewey's Experience and Nature is both the most suggestive and most difficult of his writings." The meticulously edited text published here as the first vol-ume in the series The Later Works of John Dewey, 1925-1953 spans that entire period in Dewey's thought by including two important and previously unpublished documents from the book's history: Dewey's unfinished new introduction written between 1947 and 1949, edited by the late Joseph Ratner, and Dewey's unedited final draft of that introduction written the year before his death. In the intervening years Dewey realized the impossibility of making his use of the word "experience" understood. He wrote in his 1951 draft for a new introduction: "Were I to write (or rewrite) Experience and Nature today I would entitle the book Culture and Nature and the treatment of specific subject-matters would be correspondingly modified. I would abandon the term `experience' because of my growing realiza-tion that the historical obstacles which prevented understand-ing of my use of `experience' are, for all practical purposes, insurmountable. I would substitute the term `culture' because with its meanings as now firmly established it can fully and freely carry my philosophy of experience."

This volume republishes forty-four essays, reviews, and miscellaneous pieces from 1939, 1940, and 1941. In his Introduction, R. W. Sleeper characterizes the contents of this volume as "vintage Dewey. Ranging widely over problems of theory and practice, they reveal him commencing his ninth decade at the peak of his intellectual powers." "Nature in Experience," Dewey's reply to Morris R. Cohen and William Ernest Hocking, "is a model of clarity and responsiveness," writes Sleeper, "perhaps his clearest statement of why it is that metaphysics does not play the fundamental role for him that it had regularly played for his predecessors."

This third volume in the definitive edition of Dewey's early work opens with his tribute to George Sylvester Morris, the former teacher who had brought Dewey to the University of Michigan. Morris's death in 1889 left vacant the Department of Philosophy chairmanship and led to Dewey's returning to fill that post after a year's stay at Minnesota.
Appearing here, among all his writings from 1889 through 1892, are Dewey's earliest comprehensive statements on logic and his first book on ethics. Dewey's marked copy of the galley-proof for his important article "The Present Position of Logical Theory," recently discovered among the papers of the Open Court Publishing Company, is used as the basis for the text, making available for the first time his final changes and corrections.
The textual studies that make "The Early Works "unique among American philosophical editions are reported in detail. One of these, "A Note on "Applied Psychology,""" "documents the fact that Dewey did not co-author this book frequently attributed to him. Six brief unsigned articles written in 1891 for a University of Michigan student publication, the "Inlander,"" "have been identified as Dewey's and are also included in this volume. In both style and content, these articles reflect Dewey's conviction that philosophy should be used as a means of illuminating the contemporary scene; thus they add a new dimension to present knowledge of his early writing.

"Psychology,"" "John Dewey's first book, is an appropriate choice for the first volume in the Southern Illinois University series "The Early Works of John Dewey, 1882-1898." With an original publi-cation date of 1887, "Psychology "is volume 2 of "The Early Works." It appears first in the series to introduce scholars and general readers to the use of modern textual criticism in a work outside the literary field. Designed as a scholar's reading edition, the volume presents the text of Dewey's work as the author intended, clear of editorial footnotes. All apparatus is conveniently arranged in ap-pendix form. As evidence of its wide adoption and use as a college textbook, "Psychology "had a publishing history of twenty-six print-ings. For two of the reprintings, Dewey made extensive revisions in content to incorporate developments in the field of psychology as well as in his own thinking. The textual appendices include a thorough tabulation of these changes. In recognition of the high quality and scholarly standards of the textual criticism, this edition of "Psychology "is the first non-literary work awarded the Seal of the Modern Language Associa-tion Center for Editions of American Authors. By applying to the work of a philosopher the procedures used in modern textual editions of American writers such as Hawthorne, the Southern Illinois University Dewey project is establishing a pattern for future col-lected writing of philosophers.

Volume 1 of "The Early Works of John Dewey, 1882-1898" is entitled "Early Essays and "Leibniz"'"s New Essays Concerning the Human Understanding, "1882-1888." Included here are all Dewey's earliest writings, from his first published article through his book on Leibniz.
The materials in this volume provide a chronological record of Dewey's early development--beginning with the article he sent to the "Journal of Speculative Philosophy "in 1881 while he was a high-school teacher in Oil City, Pennsylvania, and closing with his widely-acclaimed work on Leibniz in the Grigg's Series of German Philosophical Classics, written when he was an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan. During these years be-tween 1882 and 1888, Dewey's life course was established: he decided to follow a career in philosophy, completed doctoral studies at Johns Hopkins University, became an Instructor at the University of Michigan, was promoted to Assistant Professor, and accepted a position as Chairman of the Department of Philosophy at the University of Minnesota. With the publication of "Psychology,"" "he became well known among scholars in this country; a series of articles in the British journal "Mind "brought him prominence in British philosophical circles. His articles were abstracted in the "Revue philosophique."
None of the articles collected in this volume was reprinted during the author's lifetime. For the first time, it is now possible for Dewey scholars to study consecutively in one publication all the essays which originally appeared in many periodicals.

In his introduction, Milton R. Konvitz concludes that "A""Common Faith "remains a provocative book, an intellectual 'teaser, ' an essay at religious philoso-phy which no philosopher can wholly bypass." Dewey concentrated much of his writing in 1933 and 1934 on issues arising from the economic crises of the Great Depression. In the early 1930s Com-munist activity in the New York Teachers Union in-creased. "The Report of the Special Grievance Committee of the Teachers Union "is published in this volume, as is Dewey's impromptu address, "On the Grievance Committee's Report," made when he presented that report.

These essays are, as Sidorsky says in his Introduction, "framed, in great mea-sure, by those two poles of his philo-sophical interest: looking backward, in a sense, to the defense of naturalistic metaphysics and moving forward to the justification and to the implications for practice of an empirical theory."
Dewey's five essays on education are evidence of his continued interest in that field. Among them is the frequently quoted "Why I" "Am a Member of the Teachers Union," which is still used by the American Federation of Teachers in its recruiting efforts. Other highlights of this volume include the famous ex-change between George Santayana and Dewey on "Experience and Nature; "an im-passioned condemnation of the mis-carriage of justice Dewey saw in the Sacco-Vanzetti trial; and a series of six articles on the Soviet Union based on Dewey's trip to that country in 1928.
