Brought up in a strict fundamentalist household, Evangeline Thiessen, like many Christians, found herself at odds with complex dogma that kept her from a lucid understanding of her relationship with God. It was the death of her father, himself a former minister, that finally brought her troubling spiritual disconnect into sharp focus and set her on a path that would afford her a new understanding of her own faith. Stepping away from the petrified state of twenty-first century fundamentalist Christian thought, she decided to re-examine the Greco-Judeo-Christian roots from which modern Christianity has grown. What she found was that a great deal of what informs the many far flung Christian denominations has very little basis in the gospel of Christ. These other influences can, however, be explained and even understood if one is willing to look at the broader contexts from which they arose. The tone and message of the remarkable spiritual conversation started by Jesus has been shifted and stifled over the centuries, but for those willing to listen it can still be discerned. The Unfinished Conversation is at once erudite and readable. It is an invitation for Christians to reconnect with the still-vital core of faith voiced two thousand years ago.

A century ago, European and North American archaeologists first came upon the extraordinary ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum—and started to converse with the Mayas who inhabited the forests of the Yucatan. In this thought-provoking history of a century-long "unfinished conversation" between the indigenous Indians and the white intruders, paul Sullivan shows how each party to the dialogue shaped the cross-cultural encounters to their own ends. North American anthropologists preferred to see the Mayas as a primitive people and studied them, they claimed, with scientific neutrality. Yet the anthropologists hid their real intentions and lied to the Mayas, pretending to be chicle dealers or explorers, and they also (in certain important cases) worked for the United States government as covert intelligence agents. Similarly, the Mayas had their own hidden agendas—wanting guns and money from the Americans to fight the central Mexican government—and consequently charged the Americans for the tribal lore and religious secrets they imparted. Sullivan asks us to view the history of Western-Maya dialogue as a Maya would—setting the prophecies of his ancestors, the advice of his grandparents, and the events of last week in a long continuum that extends way into the future and can foretell the end of the world. By taking this view, once can see how this particular Central American people has constituted a new life, a new past, and a new future out of the ruins of great suffering and defeat. This surprising, moving, and intellectually stimulating book will remind us how even actions initiated with the best intentions can be perverted when tested by the realities of political violence, acute dependency, mutual ignorance, and fear.

With this volume, The Shakespearean International Yearbook inaugurates a new feature-a special section, which in this issue is 'shakespeare in the Age of Cognitive Science.' The guest editor for the section is Mark Turner, Institute Professor, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, and Interim Chair, Department of Cognitive Science at Case Western Reserve University, USA. The Shakespearean International Yearbook continues to provide an annual survey of important issues and new developments in contemporary Shakespeare research. Representing truly international perspectives on Shakespeare studies, in this issue contributors come from not only the US and the UK but also Japan, Denmark, Canada, and Australia. They appraise or reappraise current thinking about such diverse matters as scepticism, ethnicity, performance, theatrical and textual practices, and translations or adaptations. Essays on the plays and poems tend to focus on 'where we are now', and what has changed, is changing, or ought to change.
