Pilkey and J. Andrew G. Cooper the world’s beaches while there is still time. The geologists Orrin H. Pilkey and the last beach J. Andrew G. Cooper sound the alarm in this frank assessment of our current relationship with beaches and the grim future if we do not change the way we understand and treat our irreplaceable shores. Combining case studies and anecdotes from around the world, they argue that many of the world’s developed beaches, including some in Florida and in Spain, are virtually doomed and that we must act immediately to save imperiled beaches. After explaining beaches as dynamic ecosystems, Pilkey and Cooper assess the harm done by dense oceanfront development, accompanied by the construction of massive seawalls to protect new buildings from a shoreline that encroaches as sea levels rise. They discuss the toll taken by sand mining, trash that washes up on beaches, and pollution, which has contaminated not only the water but also, surprisingly, the sand. Acknowledging the challenge of reconciling our actions with our love of beaches, the geologists offer suggestions for reversing course, insisting that given the space, Orrin H. Pilkey, deemed “America’s foremost philosopher of the beaches,” by the New York Times, is James B. Duke Professor Emeritus of Geology at the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University, and Founder and Director Emeritus of the Program for the Study of Developed Shorelines, based at Western Carolina University. Pilkey is a coauthor (with Keith C. Pilkey) of Global Climate Change: A Primer, published by Duke University Press, and of twenty books in the Press’s Living with the Shore series, edited by Pilkey and William J. Neal. The Orrin Pilkey Marine Science and Conservation Genetics Center opened at the Duke Marine Lab in Beaufort, North Carolina, in 2013. Pilkey lives in Hillsborough, North Carolina. J. Andrew G. Cooper is Professor of Coastal Studies in the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Ulster. He and Pilkey are coauthors (with William J. Neal and Joseph T. Kelley) of The World’s Beaches: A Global Guide to the Science of the Shoreline and coeditors of Pitfalls of Shoreline Stabilization. Well known for his advocacy of nonintervention on shorelines and his work on beaches and coasts worldwide, Cooper lives in the town of Coleraine in Northern Ireland. beaches can take care of themselves and provide us with multiple benefits. “We’re all used to lying on beaches and zoning out—but it turns out that if we want those beaches to be there much longer we better stand up and make our voices heard. This is fascinating new information about one of the planet’s most beloved also by Orrin H. Pilkey ecosystems.”—BILL M C KIBBEN , author of Wandering Home: A Long Walk Across America’s Most Hopeful Landscape “The Last Beach is a must-read for anyone interested in the plight of the world’s beaches.

Angus Cargill was formerly a Lecturer in the Department of Tibetan Language and Literature at Minzu University of China, Beijing. Ralph A. Litzinger is the author of Other Chinas: The Yao and the Politics of National Belonging. Robert Barnett is the Director of Modern Tibetan Studies at Columbia University and the author of Lhasa: Streets with Memories. In My Tibetan Childhood, Naktsang Nulo chronicles his life in Tibet’s Amdo region during the 1950s. Recalling events as he experienced them at the age of ten, he describes his upbringing as a nomad on the grasslands of Tibet’s eastern plateau. He depicts pilgrimages to monasteries, including a 1500-mile horseback expedition his family made to Lhasa. A year or so later, they attempted to flee by the same route as troops of the People’s Liberation Army advanced into their area. Naktsang’s “Equipped with a superbly comprehensive introduction, father was killed in the fighting that this absorbing memoir of nomadic life in the 1950s takes ensued, part of a little-known wave of us deep into a Tibetan world neglected by both official Chinese histories and narratives by Tibetans in exile. Few books on Tibet have been as revelatory as this unrest that took place throughout Amdo in 1958, as Tibetans rose up against the imposition of social and religious one.”—PANKAJ MISHRA , author of From the Ruins of reforms by the Chinese forces. During the next year, the author and his brother Empire: The Revolt Against the West and the Remaking were imprisoned in a camp where, after the onset of famine, very few children of Asia survived. The narrative reveals, through the eyes of a child, the lived experience of the forced and violent incorporation of the Tibetan heartlands into the People’s Republic by Chinese troops in the 1950s. The author’s matter-of-fact accounts cast the atrocities that he relays in stark relief. Remarkably, Naktsang lived to tell his tale. His book was published in 2007 in China, where tens of thousands of unofficial copies are believed to have circulated. It is one of the most reprinted works in modern Tibetan literature. This translation offers rare insight into a fascinating, painful period of modern Tibetan history. “With little comment or condemnation, [My Tibetan Childhood] records the price paid in lives and lifestyles by the author’s family and community for their incorporation into modern China. . . . In many senses, it is a naive story, the chronicle of a world seen through a child’s eyes. But to readers within Tibet, it was a revelation. It told of epochal events that had rarely if ever been described before in print.”—ROBERT BARNETT, from the introduction 2 T I B E T/ M E M O I R November 356 pages, 30 illustrations paper, 978–0–8223–5726–1, $24.95tr/£15.99 cloth, 978–0–8223–5712–4, $89.95/£59.00 general interest What Animals Teach Us about Politics brian massumi In What Animals Teach Us about Politics, BRIAN MASSUMI What Animals Teach Us about Politics Brian Massumi takes up the question of “the animal.” By treating the human as animal, he develops a concept of an animal politics.

Massumi real progress in untangling the relationship between play, integrates notions marginalized by the dominant currents in evolutionary biology, animal behavior, and philosophy—notions such as play, sympathy, and creativity— into the concept of nature. As he does so, his inquiry necessarily expands, encompassing not only animal behavior but also animal thought and its distance from, or proximity to, those capacities over which human animals claim a monopoly: language and reflexive sympathy, politics, and animality. What Animals Teach Us about Politics provides a fascinating and persuasively nonsubject-centered account of sympathy, and it goes a long way toward helping us to see how the practice and theorization of ‘politics’ would be radically refigured within a processontology.”—JANE BENNETT, author of Vibrant Matter: A Political Ecology of Things “In a remarkable work of speculative thought, Brian Massumi reimagines what politics can be when we ramify the consciousness. importance of play—its excesses, surpluses, and transforma- For Massumi, humans and animals exist on a continuum. Understanding that tive energies—and how it intimately binds human beings to continuum, while accounting for difference, requires a new logic of “mutual inclusion.” Massumi finds the conceptual resources for this logic in the work of thinkers including Gregory Bateson, Henri Bergson, Gilbert Simondon, and other forms of life. This is not the ‘animal,’ and the ‘politics,’ you thought you knew.”—CARY WOLFE, author of Before the Law: Humans and Other Animals in a Biopolitical Frame Raymond Ruyer. This concise book intervenes in Deleuze studies, posthumanism, and animal studies, as well as areas of study as wide-ranging as affect theory, aesthetics, embodied cognition, political theory, process philosophy, the theory of play, and the thought of Alfred North Whitehead. also by Brian Massumi Parables for the Virtual: Movement, Affect, Sensation paper, $24.95/£15.99 978–0–8223–2897–1 / 2002 P O L I T I C A L T H E O R Y/C U LT U R A L S T U D I E S September 152 pages paper, 978–0–8223–5800–8, $21.95/£13.99 cloth, 978–0–8223–5772–8, $74.95/£49.00 3 general interest On The Wire linda williams Many television critics, legions Linda Williams is Professor of Film Studies and Rhetoric at the University of California, Berkeley.

One history of will is a history of attempts to eliminate willfulness from the will. Delving into philosophical and literary texts, Ahmed examines the relation between will and willfulness, ill will and good will, and the particular will and general will. Her reflections Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths College, University of London. She is the author of On Being Included: Racism and Diversity in Institutional Life, The Promise of Happiness, and Queer Phenomenology: Orientations, Objects, Others, all also published by Duke University Press, as well as The Cultural Politics of Emotion, Strange Encounters: Embodied Others in Post-Coloniality, and Differences That Matter: Feminist Theory and Postmodernism. shed light on how will is embedded in a political and cultural landscape, how it is embodied, and how will and willfulness are socially mediated. Attentive to the wayward, the wandering, and the deviant, Ahmed considers how willfulness is taken up by those who have received its charge. Grounded in feminist, queer, and antiracist politics, her sui generis analysis of the willful subject, the figure who wills wrongly or wills too much, suggests that willfulness might be required to recover from the attempt at its elimination. “Like Sara Ahmed’s other works, which are known for their originality, sharpness, and reach, Willful Subjects offers here a vibrant, surprising, and philosophically rich analysis of cultural politics, drawing on feminist, queer, and antiracist uses of willingness and willfulness to explain forms of sustained and adamant social disagreement as a constitutive part of any radical ethics and politics worth its name.” —JUDITH BUTLER, Maxine Elliot Professor of Comparative Literature, University of California, Berkeley “Willful Subjects is beautifully conceived and expertly conducted, sentence by sentence, suggestion by suggestion. Paradoxically, Sara Ahmed’s willfulness promises happiness for her readers. Exquisite formulations engage our contemplation and render real intellectual enjoyment.

What kinds of politics might emerge from challenging the assumption that biological sex—or the categories “man” and “woman”—is stable and self-evident across time, space, and culture? This special issue of TSQ: Transgender Studies Quarterly asks how trans scholarship can decolonize, rather than reproduce, dominant imaginaries of sexuality and gender. The issue highlights roadblocks as well as unexpected openings in the global circulation of trans politics and culture. A First Nations scholar recovers lost tribal knowledge of non-Eurocentric gender. A Thai trans filmmaker negotiates culturally incommensurable categories of self. Two contributors consider what is lost as the term transgender replaces local, vernacular categories of difference in India. A study of genderqueer childhood in Peru disrupts colonial ethnographer-informant roles, while another author critiques the colonialist ethnography on the sarimbavy, gender nonconforming categories of Madagascar. Another essay follows the global commodity chain of synthetic hormones to explore the biopolitics of transgender bodies and race. Finally, a roundtable discussion among transnational activists, culture makers, and scholars offers perspectives ranging from the celebratory to the cynical on decolonizing the transgender imaginary. The tyrannies of sexual normativity have been widely denounced in queer theory. Heteronormativity, homonormativity, family values, marriage, and monogamy have all been objects of sustained queer critique, most often in purely oppositional form: as antinormativity. The contributors to this special issue of differences ask a seemingly simple question of this critical code: can queer theory proceed without a primary allegiance to antinormativity? These essays offer an affirmative answer either by rethinking normativity or eschewing it altogether Contributors in order to redirect the intellectual and political energies of the field.

Forensic Media demonstrates how thoroughly the technological accident drives and is driven by parallel developments in modern recording media. By raising crucial questions about the role of the mediated accident in modern debates on causality, evidence, knowledge, and narrative, it makes significant contributions to media archeology and the history of science.”—KAREN BECKMAN, editor of Animating Film Theory In Forensic Media, Greg Siegel considers how photographic, electronic, and digital media have been used to record and reconstruct accidents, particularly high-speed crashes and catastrophes.

Moving from England to the Caribbean to the early United States, she traces the theatrical emergence of a collective body in the colonized New World—one that included indigenous peoples, diasporic Africans, and diasporic Europeans. In the raucous space of the theatre, the contradictions of colonialism loomed large. Foremost among these was the central paradox of modernity: the coexistence of a massive slave economy and a nascent politics of freedom. Audiences in London eagerly watched the royal slave, Oroonoko, tortured on stage, while audiences in Charleston and Kingston were forbidden from watching the same scene. Audiences in Kingston and New York City exuberantly participated in the slaying of Richard III on stage, enacting the rise of the “people,” and Native American leaders were enjoined to watch actors in blackface “jump Jim Crow.” Dillon argues that the theater served as a “performative commons,” staging debates over representation in a political world based on popular sover- settler colonialism in North America and its overseas imperialism in the Caribbean and the Pacific, the essays in this groundbreaking volume underscore the United States as a fluctuating constellation of geopolitical entities marked by overlapping and variable practices of colonization. By rethinking the intertwined experiences of Native Americans, Puerto Ricans, Chamorros, Filipinos, Hawaiians, Samoans, and others subjected to U.S. imperial rule, the contributors consider how the diversity of settler claims, territorial annexations, overseas occupations, and circuits of slavery and labor—along with their attendant forms of jurisprudence, racialization, and militarism—both facilitate and delimit the conditions of colonial dispossession. Drawing on the insights of critical indigenous and ethnic studies, postcolonial theory, critical geography, ethnography, and social history, this volume emphasizes the significance of U.S. colonialisms as a vital analytic framework for understanding how and why the United States is what it is today.

Building on Friedrich Nietzsche’s notion of “orgies of feeling,” in which overwhelming emotions displace commonplace experiences of vulnerability and powerlessness onto a dramatic story of injured freedom, Anker contends that the recent upsurge in melodrama in the United States is an indication of public discontent. Yet the discontent that melodrama reflects is ultimately an expression of the public’s inability to overcome systemic exploitation and inequality rather than an alarmist response to inflated threats to the nation.

These authors intervened in major nineteenth-century debates about free soil, regional production, Indian deterritorialization, internal diasporas, pan-American expansionism, and hemispheric circuitry. They staged spaces as multimodal, as sites for creative dissent and invention. Black geographies stood in for what was at stake in negotiating a shared world.

The contributors to this book examine the consequences of the Depression in terms of the role of the state, party-political competition, and the formation of workingclass and other social and political movements. Going beyond economic history, they chart the repercussions and policy responses in different countries, while noting common cross-regional trends, in particular, a mounting critique of economic orthodoxy and greater state intervention in the economic, social, and cultural spheres, both trends crucial to the region’s subsequent development. The book also examines how regional transformations interacted with and differed from global processes.

Tikkun, whose name is derived from the concept of mending and transforming a fragmented world, creates a space for the emergence of a religious Left to counter the influence of the religious Right and to discuss social transformation, political change, and the evolution of religious traditions. MIT and the Transformation of American Economics seeks to remedy historians’ neglect of the influential and luminary economics department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The department, bolstered by an influx of innovative young scholars, was one of the most distinguished research economics departments in North America by the late 1950s. In another decade it would become the most highly regarded economics department in the world. This volume documents the history of this process and the ways in which MIT’s rise to prominence coincided with the remarkable transformation of American economics in the postwar period. Many developments influenced this history: the Keynesian revolution, the emergent technical nature of economics, the Cold War, the international hold of American economics, the GI Bill, and the institution’s openness to Jewish economists. Subscribers to History of Political Economy will receive a copy of MIT and the Transformation of American Economics. Contributors Roger E. Backhouse, Mauro Boianovsky, Beatrice Cherrier, William A.

Their selections offer great variety in terms of vision, perspective, and genre, and their introductions to those pieces are uniformly superb.”—steve striffler , co-editor of The Ecuador Reader: History, Culture, Politics Travel / Latin American Studies The GuaTemala ReadeR tHis reader brings togetHer more than 200 texts and images in a broad introduction to Guatemala’s history, culture, and politics. In choosing the selections, the editors sought to avoid representing the country only in terms of its long experience of conflict, racism, and violence. And so, while offering many perspectives on that violence, this anthology portrays Guatemala as a real place where people experience joys and sorrows that cannot be reduced to the contretemps of resistance and repression. It includes not only the opinions of politicians, activists, and scholars, but also poems, songs, plays, jokes, novels, short stories, recipes, art, and photographs that capture the diversity of everyday life in Guatemala. The editors introduce all of the selections, f rom the first piece, an excerpt f rom the Popol vuh, a mid-sixteenth-century text believed to be the single most important source documenting pre-Hispanic Maya culture, through the final selections, which explore contemporary Guatemala in relation to neoliberalism, multiculturalism, and the dynamics of migration to the United States and of immigrant life.

The island’s recorded history of more than two and a half millennia encompasses waves of immigration from the South Asian subcontinent, the formation of Sinhala Buddhist and Tamil Hindu civilizations, the arrival of Arab Muslim traders, and European colonization by the Portuguese, then the Dutch, and finally the British. Selected texts depict perceptions of the country’s multiple linguistic and religious communities, as well as its political travails after independence in 1948, especially the ethnic violence that recurred from the 1950s until 2009, when the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam were defeated by the Sri Lankan government’s armed forces. This wide-ranging anthology covers the aboriginal Veddhas, the earliest known inhabitants of the island; the Kings of Kandy, Sri Lanka’s last indigenous dynasty; twenty-first-century women who leave the island to work as housemaids in the Middle East; the forty thousand Sri Lankans killed by the tsunami in December 2004; and, through cutting-edge journalism and heart-wrenching poetry, the protracted violence that has scarred the country’s contemporary political history. Along with fifty-four images of paintings, sculptures, and architecture, The Sri Lanka Reader includes more than ninety classic and contemporary texts written by Sri Lankans and foreigners.

Never before has there been a book so synoptic in its treatment of Sri Lankan history, politics, and culture. The overall organization, the selections chosen for inclusion, and the introductions to the individual pieces are all of the highest order. This book will be welcomed by specialists in Sri Lankan studies, as well as the more general, educated reader.”—roger r. JaCkson , John W. Nason Professor of Asian Studies and Religion, Carleton College “John Holt’s The Sri Lanka Reader gives many insights into contemporary Sri Lanka while providing an in-depth picture of its rich history. Holt effectively weaves together documents, analytical accounts, photographs, and poetic works to produce a balanced work that is consistent in quality and readability despite accommodating many viewpoints. It is a book that you will return to time and again. It will undoubtedly become the standard collection of documents on Sri Lanka and its history.”—Chandra r. de silva , author of Sri Lanka: A History John Clifford holt is William R.
