Ver­bal aspect in Old Church Slavon­ic: A cor­pus-based approach
In Ver­bal Aspect in Old Church Slavon­ic Jaap Kam­phuis demon­strates that the aspect sys­tem of Old Church Slavon­ic can best be described if one divides the verbs into three main cat­e­gories: per­fec­tive, imper­fec­tive and anaspec­tu­al. This dif­fers from the tra­di­tion­al divi­sion into per­fec­tive and imper­fec­tive verbs only. To sup­port the cat­e­go­riza­tion, the study con­tains a cor­pus-based quan­ti­ta­tive and qual­i­ta­tive analy­sis of the avail­able Old Church Slavon­ic data. This analy­sis con­tributes to a bet­ter under­stand­ing of the devel­op­ment of aspect in Slav­ic. Kam­phuis shows that aspect in Old Church Slavon­ic func­tions more like ver­bal aspect in the West­ern groups of Slav­ic lan­guages (e.g. Czech) than ver­bal aspect in the East­ern group (e.g. Russ­ian).

Tol­stoy and his dis­ci­ples: the his­to­ry of a rad­i­cal inter­na­tion­al move­ment
In the last thir­ty years of his life, Leo Tol­stoy devel­oped a moral phi­los­o­phy that embraced paci­fism, veg­e­tar­i­an­ism, the renun­ci­a­tion of pri­vate prop­er­ty, and a refusal to com­ply with the state. The trans­for­ma­tion in his out­look led to his excom­mu­ni­ca­tion by the Ortho­dox Church, and the break­down of his fam­i­ly life. Inter­na­tion­al­ly, he inspired a legion of fol­low­ers who formed com­mu­ni­ties and pub­lish­ing hous­es devot­ed to liv­ing and pro­mot­ing the Tol­stoy­an life. These enter­pris­es flour­ished across Europe and the Unit­ed States in the late nine­teenth and ear­ly twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry, and Tol­stoy­ism influ­enced indi­vid­u­als as diverse as William Jen­nings Bryan and Mohan­das Gand­hi. In this book, Char­lotte Alston pro­vides the first in-depth his­tor­i­cal account of this remark­able phe­nom­e­non, and pro­vides an impor­tant re-assess­ment of Tolstoy’s impact on the polit­i­cal life of the late nine­teenth and ear­ly twen­ti­eth cen­tu­ry. The book is unique in its treat­ment of Tol­stoy­ism as an inter­na­tion­al phe­nom­e­non: it explores both the con­nec­tions between these Tol­stoy­an groups, and their rela­tion­ships with oth­er relat­ed reform move­ments.
