The contest over New York’s ratification of the federal Constitution involved the deepest political beliefs of its participants, who included such partisans as Alexander Hamilton, George... More > Clinton. and Abraham Yates. In the first book-length work to deal exclusively and comprehensively with this subject, Professor De Pauw questions the theory that this struggle was motivated primarily by social and economic differences. Her main concern is to expose the political aims of the Federalists and Antifederalists and the means they employed in achieving those ends. Although she minimizes the political significance of The Federalist Papers, she recognizes that the essays published by both parties — particularly Hamilton’s more violent anti-Antifederalist papers — were effective as political propaganda at the time. Even now, they color modern notions about the intentions of the delegates to the Poughkeepsie convention.< Less

A Neurodynamic Theory of Schizophrenia By Robert Miller
Hardcover: $115.55

An integrated theory of "schizophrenia" is presented, based on properties of axons interconnecting the cerebral cortex: Rapidly-conducting axons are replaced by more slowly-conducting ones.... More > This premise accounts for many features of schizophrenia, at psychological and biological levels. The theory is compatible with the "stress-diathesis" model, the neurodevelopmental hypothesis, and the dopamine theory of psychosis - but incorporates much additional evidence. Two, almost separate bodies of theory are involved, one explaining psychosis in terms of transmitter dopamine, the other accounting for non-psychotic traits in terms of axonal properties. A key question is: "Why are people with the non-psychotic trait abnormalities also prone to episodes of psychosis?" An answer is based on the premise about axonal conduction. Psychosocial causes are accepted, along with genetic ones: Psychosocial causes promote psychosis in predisposed individuals, without contributing to the basic constitution for schizophrenia.< Less
