Theory and Practice of Sociocriticism was first published in 1988. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Edmond Cros is a leading French Hispanicist whose work is unique in Continental theory because it brings Spanish and Mexican texts into current literary debates, which have so far centered mainly on the French and German traditions. Equally distinctive is the nature of his work, which Cros terms sociocriticism. Unlike most sociological approaches to literature, which leave the structure of texts untouched, sociocriticism aims to prove that the encounter with "ideological traces," and with antagonistic tensions between social classes, is central to any reading of texts. Cros's method distinguishes between the "semiotic and "ideological" elements within a text, and involves the patient, exacting reconstruction of the concrete text from these elements, a process that enables the sociocritic to interpret its fault lines, its internal contradictions - in the end , its irreducibly social nature. As its title suggests, Theory and Practice of Sociocriticism is structured in two parts. Its opening chapters analyze sociological theories of discourse, including those of Foucault, Bakhtin, and Goldman; in the second part, Cros applies theory to practice in readings of specific works: the film Scarface, contemporary Mexican poetry and prose (Octavio Paz, Carlos Fuentes), and the picaresque novel of the Spanish Golden Age. In their foreword, Jurgen Link and Ursula Link-Heer differentiate sociocriticism from other social approaches to literature and show how Cros's method works in specific textual readings. They emphasize his resistance to the reductive modes and "misreadings" that dominate much of contemporary theory. Edmond Cros is a professor of literary theory and Hispanic studies at the Universite Paul Valery in Montpellier, France, and Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Hispanic Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. Jurgen Link teaches at the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum and Ursula Link-Heer at the Universitat Siegen, both in West Germany.

From the Mud to the Mire is a chronicle of the life of John R. (Jack) Harney. Mr. Harney has been, at times, a student/athlete, scholar, soldier, and public servant, as well as a loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. His autobiography tells the story of his early family life, to his (interrupted) college years at Harvard, his adventures in the U.S. Army during World War II in the European Theater, to his career in the intelligence community. His career with the National Security Agency included two tours in Germany and two tours at the Pentagon, culminating with his final assignment as Assistant Director for Policy and Liaison. Included are his poignant recollections of war, and his thoughts about its impact on those who fight in it. Jack lives in Maryland with Betty, his wife of 63 years. His family includes three children, five grandchildren, two step-grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, and five (soon to be six) step-great grandchildren.
