Niculescu, Mihai V. The Spell of the Logos: Origen’s Exegetic Pedagogy in the Contemporary Debate Regarding Logocentrism. Piscataway, NJ: Gorgias Press, 2009.
Niculescu writes about Origen of Alexandria, a Greek Patristic author, in his latest publication, The Spell of the Logos: Origen’s Exegetic Pedagogy in the Contemporary Debate Regarding Logocentrism. The book follows the path of Origen’s views, proposes critical theories, and asks thought-provoking questions about religion and what Origen calls the “Word.” Origen assumed humanity’s wish for salvation was answered by a heavenly “Word.” The “Word” is a chronology of events, a method of spreading the good news, and a way to receive salvation.
This book gives an in-depth description of Origen’s understanding of religion and details a current dilemma about the potential of Origen’s Logos-centered views of the past.

Hogan, Jackie. Gender, Race and National Identity: Nations of Flesh and Blood. New York: Routledge, 2009. See page 36.
Gender, Race and National Identity: Nations of Flesh and Blood studies the relationship between gender, race, and national identity in the United States, the United Kingdom, Japan, and Australia. Stories about a nation’s history, its future, and its identity carry underlying messages about race and gender. Hogan’s book examines discourses of national identity in the four nations by analyzing texts such as television advertisements, war coverage, Olympic opening ceremonies, letters
to the editor, tourism promotions, and museums. Hogan argues that narratives of national identity not only reflect long-standing social inequalities, but they have the potential to challenge or
reinforce such inequalities.
