Atwood, Christopher. Young Mongols and Vigilantes in Inner Mongolia's Interregnum Decades, 1922-1931, 2 vols. Leiden, the Netherlands: Brill, 2002.

In the years of China's warlord republic, educated Mongol nationalists and rural vigilantes sought to unify Inner Mongolia with the independent state in Mongolia proper. Brought together by the Soviet embassy, the nationalists fought until their final uprisings in 1928. Based on previously closed Mongolian archives, this two-volume work of political and social history documents the underground world of pan-Mongolist agitation in China.

Natural-Born Cyborgs book cover

Clark, Andy. Natural-Born Cyborgs: Minds, Technologies, and the Future of Human Intelligence. New York: Oxford University Press, 2003.

"My body is an electronic virgin . . . but I am slowly becoming more and more of a cyborg. So are you." So begins Andy Clark's provocative exploration of the nature of the human mind. Unlike cyborgs of fiction and film, humans are "natural-born cyborgs," says Clark, with minds primed to create and make use of nonbiological tools and technologies, from basic pen and paper to the latest digital aids. And not only do we make use of the tools, they are becoming part of us. As digital technologies get more portable, pervasive, powerful, and personalized, "our tools become more and more a part of who and what we are," says Clark. ("The mind is just less and less in the head," he saysthink of enhanced cell phones, PDAs, or how you feel when your laptop won't work). It's a looping, hybrid processmind begets tool, tool extends the mind's abilities to create, mind creates new tools, and on and on. Clark considers a wide range of technologies that he says are quickly dovetailing with our minds, reshaping human nature. Acknowledging the "bad borg" side of things--overload, alienation, deceit, isolation--Clark concludes that it's our basic nature to incorporate nonbiological technologies deep into our mental essence; the question is not whether we go that route, but how.

Clark is director of the Cognitive Science Program and professor of philosophy at IUB.

Feeding Anorexia book cover

Gremillion, Helen. Feeding Anorexia: Gender and Power at a Treatment Center. Durham, N.C.: Duke University Press, 2003.

Anorexia nervosa . . . self-starvation. Despite decades of therapeutic developments, anorexia remains extremely difficult to treat. After more than a year as a participant-observer on a small inpatient unit, Gremillion says the problem lies in the treatments themselves. Gremillion, a feminist anthropologist, concludes that the center's remedies--elaborate surveillance of patient activities, meticulous accounting of body weight and calories consumed, scrutiny of patients' family lives, and more--reinforced anorexia by perpetuating cultural ideals concerning physical fitness, femininity, maternal love, family life, power, and self-control. In an epilogue, she suggests the alternative of narrative therapy, in which therapists help clients create an alternative "anti-anorexia" life story.

Gremillion is assistant professor and Peg Zeglin Brand Chair in the Department of Gender Studies at IUB.

In this literary biography of Mary St. Leger (Kingsley) Harrison, a.k.a.

photo from Kai series

A photographer and IUB assistant professor of fine arts,

Osamu James Nakagawa

explores in-betweenness in his art—photography is his "expressive bridge" across the borders of cultures, identities, and time periods. Born in America to Japanese parents, raised in both countries, Nakagawa has depicted his cross-cultural experience in numerous exhibitions, including Ma-between the past-. Created from combinations of Nakagawa's photos and family mementos from his ailing father, the Ma works "convey my sense of traverse," says Nakagawa, "crossing over gaps that exist between here and there, now and then." In the Kai series, Nakagawa reflects on the transitions of death and birth, as his father dies and his daughter is born. "Photographing became a way for me to 'slow down,'" he says, "and question the changes that were bringing a different rhythm to life." Called "exceptionally fine" by the New York Times, Nakagawa's work appeared in two solo exhibitions and four group exhibitions in 2003 and has been published and reviewed widely. Nakagawa has also received an IU Outstanding Junior Faculty Award for his work.

Nash, Richard. Wild Enlightenment: The Borders of Human Identity in the Eighteenth Century. Charlottesville, Va.: University of Virginia Press, 2003.

Winner of the Walker Cowen Memorial Prize for outstanding work in 18th-century studies, this work takes a new approach to the "Noble Savage." Nash charts the figure of the wild man through novels, broadsheets, pamphlets, and advertisements as well as in locations such as fair booths, court, and Parliament.
