Dear Readers, This season’s catalogue puts forth the results of a remarkable effort by Columbia University Press authors to grapple with urgent global issues. With books tackling climate change, racial justice, national security, and social policy, as well as eye-catching original subjects—the alt-right, fracking, Lyme disease, the “corporate tomato,” and nonrealistic taxidermy— our authors stand out at the frontiers of scholarship. Our titles this season showcase the University and its local and global presence. The fiftieth anniversary of the events of 1968 is approaching, and in A Time to Stir (p. 1), Paul Cronin presents remarkable recollections of the protests that shook Columbia’s campus and resonated worldwide. Turning to the present and its challenges, in The Sustainable City (p. 25), the Earth Institute’s Steven Cohen describes the policies that can make urban systems go green, especially relevant to Columbia’s position in a vibrant metropolis. Columbia’s Global Centers seek to facilitate international communication, and in Tunisia: An Arab Anomaly (p. 29), the Global Centers executive vice president Safwan M. Masri does just that through a personal account of Tunisia’s history. Highlighting the best of European thought continues to be one of our core strengths, with a never-before-translated compendium of Roland Barthes’s correspondence (p. 6); Artaud the Moma (p. 7), Jacques Derrida’s virtuosic lecture on Antonin Artaud given at the Museum of Modern Art; and a philosophical new novel by Julia Kristeva, The Enchanted Clock (p. 8). Joining them are globe-spanning works of literature in translation, including Jun’ichirō Tanizaki’s metafictional mystery In Black and White (p. 9) and an exciting selection of new Russian Library titles (pp. 16-17). Annette Insdorf ’s Cinematic Overtures (p. 22), a Leonard Hastings Schoff Lecture, turns our attention to a movie’s first minutes, and the Kenneth J. Arrow lecture series continues with Christan Gollier’s Ethical Asset Valuation and the Good Society (p. 41), which seeks a better way of directing investment toward the common good. As remarkable as they are, the books on display in this catalogue would not exist without the efforts of our readers, partners, and the university community. Thank you for your support of our books and our mission. Jennifer Crewe Associate Provost and Director


A Time to Stir Columbia ’68

PAUL CRONIN, EDITOR A KAL EID OS COP IC PO RT R A I T O F T H E ST U D E N T U PR IS ING AT COLUM BI A A N D T H E L E G ACI E S OF T H E 1 9 6 0S

For seven days in April 1968, students occupied five buildings on the campus of Columbia University to protest a planned gymnasium in a nearby Harlem park, links between the university and the Vietnam War, and what they saw as the university’s unresponsive attitude toward students and faculty. Exhilarating to some and troubling to others, the student protests paralyzed the university, grabbed the world’s attention, and inspired other uprisings. Fifty years after the events,  A Time to Stir captures the reflections of those who participated in and witnessed the Columbia rebellion.

With more than sixty essays from members of Students for a Democratic Society, the Students’ Afro-American Society, faculty, undergraduates who opposed the protests, “outside agitators,” and members of the New York Police Department, A Time to Stir sheds light on the politics, passions, and ideals of the 1960s. Moving beyond the student movement’s white leadership, this book presents the perspectives of black students, who were dealing with their uneasy integration into a supposedly liberal campus, as well as the views of women, who increasingly questioned their second-class status. A Time to Stir also speaks to the complicated legacy of the uprising. For many, the events at Columbia inspired a lifelong dedication to social causes while for others they signaled the beginning of the chaos that would soon engulf Students for a Democratic Society. Taken together, these reflections present a nuanced and moving portrait that reflects the sense of possibility and excess that characterized the 1960s. PAUL CRONIN’S

books include Werner Herzog: A Guide for the

Perplexed (2014) and Lessons with Kiarostami (2015). His films include a study of Haskell Wexler’s Medium Cool and, to accompany this book, a multichapter documentary on the Columbia University protests of 1968. He teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

“Paul Cronin is the world’s leading expert on the upheaval that unfolded at Columbia University in the spring of 1968, and in this richly contextualized collection of essays from participants in the rebellion, he treats the topic as comprehensively as possible. A Time to Stir showcases a broad range of perspectives, draws out numerous themes, and reminds us why the Columbia rebellion remains relevant today. A Time to Stir also makes for dramatic, exciting, and provocative reading. This is can’t-putit-down history.” —John McMillian, Georgia State University

Making Sense of the Alt-Right GEORGE HAWLEY

A N E X P ERT P ERSP EC TI VE O N THE EMERGEN C E O F THE A LT- R I GHT A N D THE N EW WHI TE N ATI O N A LI SM

During the 2016 election, a new term entered the American political lexicon: the “alt-right,” short for “alternative right.” Despite the innocuous name, the alt-right is a white-nationalist movement. Yet it differs from earlier racist groups: it is youthful and tech-savvy, obsessed with provocation and trolling, amorphous, predominantly online, and mostly anonymous. And it was energized by Donald Trump’s presidential campaign. In Making Sense of the AltRight, George Hawley provides an accessible introduction to the alt-right, giving vital perspective on the emergence of a group whose overt racism has confounded expectations for a more tolerant America.

“Making Sense of the Alt-Right is clearly written, insightful, and impressively documented, getting the reader genuinely close to the essence of this amorphous movement. I suspect that this will become the go-to work on the movement for students, politicians, and serious readers alike.” —Michael Barkun, Syracuse University

“Making Sense of the Alt-Right understands alt-right thinking from the inside. George Hawley’s erudition ​ on the subject is evident.” —Lawrence Rosenthal, University of California, Berkeley

Hawley explains the movement’s origins, evolution, methods, and core belief in white identity politics. The book explores how the alt-right differs from traditional white nationalism, libertarianism, and other online illiberal ideologies such as neoreaction, as well as from mainstream Republicans and even Donald Trump and Steve Bannon. The alt-right’s use of offensive humor and its trolling-driven approach, based in animosity to so-called political correctness, can make it difficult to determine true motivations. Yet through exclusive interviews and a careful study of the alt-right’s influential texts, Hawley is able to paint a full picture of a movement that not only disagrees with liberalism but fundamentally rejects most of the tenets of American conservatism. Hawley points to the alt-right’s growing influence and makes a case for coming to a precise understanding of its beliefs without sensationalism or downplaying the movement’s radicalism. GEORGE HAWLEY

ence at the University of Alabama. He is the author of Voting and Migration Patterns in the U.S. (2013), White Voters in Twenty-First Century America (2014), and Right-Wing Critics of American Conservatism (2016).

The Fracking Debate

The Risks, Benefits, and Uncertainties of the Shale Revolution DANIEL RAIMI AN U NB IAS ED GUID E TO T H E BI G Q U E ST I O N S ABOUT F R AC K ING

Over the past decade, oil and gas production in the United States has surged dramatically—thanks largely to technological advances such as highvolume hydraulic fracturing, more commonly known as “fracking.” This rapid increase has generated widespread debate, with proponents touting economic and energy-security benefits and opponents highlighting the environmental and social risks of increased oil and gas development. Despite the heated debate, neither side has a monopoly on the facts. In this book, Daniel Raimi gives a balanced and accessible view of oil and gas development, clearly and thoroughly explaining the key issues surrounding the shale revolution.

The Fracking Debate directly addresses the most common questions and concerns associated with fracking, including: What is fracking? Does fracking pollute the water supply? Will fracking make the United States energy independent? Does fracking cause earthquakes? How is fracking regulated? Is fracking good for the economy? Coupling a deep understanding of the scholarly research with travels to every major U.S. oil- and gas-producing region, Raimi highlights stories of the people and communities affected by the shale revolution, for better and for worse. The Fracking Debate provides the evidence and context that have so frequently been missing from the national discussion of the future of oil and gas production, offering readers the tools to make sense of this critical issue. DANIEL RAIMI

“In this fair and unbiased book, filled with firsthand accounts and written in a gritty style appropriate for the topic at hand, Raimi explores the technology, the regulation, and the socioeconomic outcomes of shale energy development. Holistic in its range and robust in its depth, The Fracking Debate provides a nuanced but accessible understanding of the shale revolution.” —Thomas B. Murphy, Pennsylvania State University

Conquering Lyme Disease

Science Bridges the Great Divide

BRIAN FALLON, MD, AND JENNIFER SOTSKY, MD H OW N EW DI SCOVERI ES A RE B RI N GI N G A N EN D TO T HE LYME WA RS

With more than 300,000 cases each year, Lyme disease is the most common tick-borne illness in the United States. However, doctors are deeply divided on how to diagnose and treat it, leading to the controversy known as the “Lyme Wars.” Health-care providers may not be aware of Lyme’s diverse manifestations or the limitations of diagnostic tests. Meanwhile, patients have felt dismissed by their doctors and confused by the conflicting opinions and dubious self-help information found online. “Lyme disease is a more complicated and nuanced illness than has been previously recognized. Fallon and Sotsky’s experience with the neuropsychological manifestations of Lyme, combined with their insights into the current patient experience, make this book a significant addition to the literature. A well-organized, comprehensive treatment of Lyme disease and the associated issues that patients face.” —John Aucott, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Lyme Disease Research Center

In this authoritative book, the Columbia University Medical Center physicians Brian Fallon and Jennifer Sotsky explain that there is much cause for optimism. Advances in precision medicine and biotechnology are reshaping our understanding of Lyme disease and accelerating the discovery of new tools to treat it. Drawing on both extensive clinical experience and cutting-edge research, Fallon, Sotsky, and their colleagues clearly explain the immunologic, infectious, and neurologic basis of chronic symptoms and their cognitive and psychological impact, as well as current and emerging tests, treatments, and prevention strategies. Conquering Lyme Disease gives an up-to-the-minute overview of the science that is essential for both patients and practitioners. BRIAN A. FALLON

The Story of the Earth in 25 Rocks Tales of Important Geological Puzzles and the People Who Solved Them DONALD R. PROTHERO THE AM AZING STOR I E S O F T H E R O CKS T H AT H E L PE D G E O LOGISTS UNCOV E R E A RT H ’ S PAST

Every rock is a tangible trace of the earth’s past. In The Story of the Earth in 25 Rocks, Donald R. Prothero tells the fascinating stories behind the discoveries that shook the foundations of geology. In twentyfive chapters—each about a particular rock, outcrop, or geologic phenomenon—Prothero recounts the scientific detective work that took us from the unearthing of exemplary specimens to tectonic shifts in how we view our planet and history.

Prothero follows in the footsteps of the scientists who asked—and answered—geology’s biggest questions: How do we know how old the earth is? What happened to the supercontinent Pangea? What can we learn about our planet from meteorites and moon rocks? The Story of the Earth in 25 Rocks answers these questions through expertly chosen case studies, such as Pliny the Elder’s firsthand account of the eruption of Vesuvius; the granite outcrops that led a Scottish scientist to theorize that the landscapes he witnessed were far older than Noah’s Flood; and how trying to date the age of meteorites revealed the dangers of lead poisoning. Each of these breakthroughs filled in a piece of the puzzle that is the earth. Summarizing a wealth of information in an entertaining, approachable style, The Story of the Earth in 25 Rocks is essential reading for the armchair geologist, the rock hound, and all who are curious about the earth beneath their feet.

Album

Unpublished Correspondence and Texts ROLAND BARTHES Translated by Jody Gladding A R I CH A N D I N TI MATE VI EW O F BA RTHES’ S LI FE A N D WO R K THRO UGH HI S LETTERS

“The significance of this book—the first English-language publication of Barthes’s correspondence—cannot be overestimated. Starting with Barthes’s adolescence and the years in his late twenties spent in a sanatorium, these selected letters represent exchanges with longtime personal friends as well as many of the key figures of twentieth-century French intellectual history.” —Diana Knight, University of Nottingham

Album provides an unparalleled look into Roland Barthes’s life of letters. It presents a selection of correspondence, from his adolescence in the 1930s through the height of his career and up to the last years of his life, covering such topics as friendships, intellectual adventures, politics, and aesthetics. It offers an intimate look at Barthes’s thought processes and the everyday reflection behind the composition of his works, as well as a rich archive of epistolary friendships, spanning half a century, among the leading intellectuals of the day.

Barthes was one of the great observers of language and culture, and Album shows him in his element, immersed in heady French intellectual culture and the daily struggles to maintain a writing life. Barthes’s correspondents include Maurice Blanchot, Michel Butor, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Julia Kristeva, Claude Lévi-Strauss, Georges Perec, Raymond Queneau, Alain Robbe-Grillet, Marthe Robert, and Jean Starobinski, among others. The book also features documents, letters, and postcards reproduced in facsimile; unpublished material; and notes and transcripts from his seminars. The first Englishlanguage publication of Barthes’s letters, Album is a comprehensive testimony to one of the most influential critics and philosophers of the twentieth century and the world of letters in which he lived and breathed.

Artaud the Moma JACQUES DERRIDA

Edited with an afterword by Kaira M. Cabañas Translated by Peggy Kamuf DE R R IDA AND ARTAU D AT T H E M U S E U M O F MODER N ART

In 1996 Jacques Derrida gave a lecture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York on the occasion of Antonin Artaud: Works on Paper, one of the first exhibitions to present the avant-garde dramatist and poet’s paintings and drawings. Derrida’s original title, “Artaud the Moma,” is a characteristic play on words. It alludes to Artaud’s calling himself Mômo, Marseilles slang for “fool,” upon his return to Paris in 1946 after years in asylums while playing off of the museum’s nickname, MoMA. But the title was not deemed “presentable or decent” by the very institution that chose to exhibit Artaud’s work. Instead, the lecture was advertised as “Jacques Derrida . . . will present a lecture about Artaud’s drawings.”

For Derrida, what was at stake was what it meant for the museum to exhibit Artaud’s drawings and for him to lecture on Artaud in that context. Thinking over the performative force of Artaud’s work and the relation between writing and drawing, Derrida addresses the multiplicity of Artaud’s identities to confront the modernist museum’s valorizing of originality. He channels Artaud’s specter, speech, and struggle against representation to attempt to hold the museum accountable for trying to confine Artaud within its categories. Artaud the Moma, as lecture and text, reveals the challenge that Artaud posed to Derrida—and to art and its institutional history. A powerful interjection into the museum halls, this work is a crucial moment in Derrida’s thought and an insightful, unsparing reading of a challenging writer and artist. JACQUES DERRIDA

(1930–2004) was one of the twentieth century’s

most prolific and influential philosophers. KAIRA M. CABAÑAS

The Enchanted Clock A Novel

JULIA KRISTEVA Translated by Armine Kotin Mortimer A N I NTRI CATE N EW N OVEL BY J ULI A K RI STEVA THAT CO N T EMP LATES THE SUB J EC T O F TI ME

In the Palace of Versailles there is a fabulous golden clock, made for Louis XV by the king’s engineer, Claude-Siméon Passemant. The astronomical clock shows the phases of the moon and the movements of the planets, and it will tell time—hours, minutes, seconds, and even sixtieths of seconds—until the year 9999. Passemant’s clock brings the nature of time into sharp focus in Julia Kristeva’s intricate, poetic novel The Enchanted Clock.

“A tour de force that infuses the novelistic genre with theatrical and essayistic undertones.” —Verena Conley, Harvard University

“An original, creative narrative on the topic of time, cognizant of a complex intellectual world while also telling a beautiful and compelling story.” —Carol Bové, Senior Lecturer in English, University of Pittsburgh and Professor Emerita of French, Westminster College

Nivi, a psychoanalyst and magazine editor, nearly drowns while swimming off the Île de Ré; the astrophysicist Theo Passemant fishes her out of the water. They become lovers. While Theo wonders if he is descended from the clockmaker, Nivi’s son Stan, who suffers from comas, develops a passion for the clock. Soon Nivi is fixated on its maker. But then the clock is stolen, and when a young writer for Nivi’s magazine mysteriously dies, the clock is found near his body. The Enchanted Clock combines past and present, jumping back and forth between points of view and across eras from eighteenth-century Versailles to the present day. Its stylistically inventive narrative voices bring immediacy and depth to our understanding of consciousness. Nivi’s life resembles her creator’s in many respects, coloring Kristeva’s customary erudition with autobiographical poignancy. Part detective mystery, part historical fiction, The Enchanted Clock is a philosophically multifaceted novel, full of poetic ruminations on memory, love, and the transcendence of linear time.

In Black and White

A Novel

JUN’ICHIRŌ TANIZAKI Translated by Phyllis I. Lyons A LOST NOV EL BY ON E O F JA PA N ’ S G R E AT AU T H O R S: DI D A WR IT ER K IL L A N OT H E R W R I T E R W I T H HI S WR IT ING?

Jun’ichirō Tanizaki’s In Black and White is a literary murder mystery in which the lines between fiction and reality are blurred. The writer Mizuno is working on a story about the perfect murder. His fictional victim is modeled on an acquaintance, a fellow writer. When he notices that this man’s real name has crept into his manuscript, he becomes terrified that an actual murder will take place—and that he will be the main suspect. Mizuno goes to great lengths to establish an alibi, venturing into the city’s underworld. But he finds himself only more entangled as his paranoid fantasies, including a mysterious “Shadow Man” out to entrap him, intrude into real life. A sophisticated psychological and metafictional mystery, In Black and White is a masterful yet little-known novel from a great writer at the height of his powers.

The year 1928 was a remarkable one for Tanizaki. He wrote three exquisite novels, but while two of them—Some Prefer Nettles and Quicksand—became famous, In Black and White disappeared from view. All three were serialized in Osaka and Tokyo newspapers and magazines, but In Black and White was never published as an independent volume. This translation restores it to its rightful place among Tanizaki’s works and offers a window into the author’s life at a crucial point in his career. A critical afterword connects the novel’s autobiographical elements with the its key concerns, including Tanizaki’s critique of Japanese literary culture and fiction.

“In Black and White is a playful, parodic whodunit and a welcome addition to the extensive body of English translations of works by Jun’ichirō Tanizaki.” —Dennis Washburn, Jane and Raphael Bernstein Professor in Asian Studies, Dartmouth College

Rescuing Retirement

TERESA GHILARDUCCI AND TONY JAMES Foreword by Timothy Geithner A V I S IO N A RY FRA MEWO RK TO SAVE RETI REMEN T FO R MI LLI O N S O F A MERI CA N S

Everyone deserves to be able to retire with dignity, but this core feature of the social contract is in jeopardy. Companies have swerved away from pensions, and most of the workforce has woefully inadequate retirement savings. If we don’t act to fix this broken system, rates of impoverishment for senior citizens threaten to skyrocket, and tens of millions of Americans reaching retirement age in the coming decades will be forced to delay retirement and will experience a dramatic drop in their standard of living.

“Rescuing Retirement is an explicit call to action aimed directly at those with the greatest stake in the problem—the millions of workers, employers, and policy makers whose lives will be affected by the actions (or inaction) of today’s stakeholders.” —Stephanie Kelton, University of Missouri– Kansas City

In Rescuing Retirement, Teresa Ghilarducci and Tony James offer a comprehensive yet simple plan to help workers save for retirement, increase retirement savings by earning higher returns, and guarantee lifelong income for everyone. Built on people’s own money in individual Guaranteed Retirement Accounts, the plan requires no new taxes, no more bureaucracy, and no increase in the deficit. Speaking to Americans’ growing anxiety about their ability to retire, Rescuing Retirement provides answers to anyone wanting to understand the growing movement to protect a period of life once considered a deserved time of rest and creativity and offers a practical guide to the future of secure retirement.

Design Thinking for the Greater Good Innovation in the Social Sector

JEANNE LIEDTKA, DAISY AZER, AND RANDY SALZMAN HOW P UB L IC ENT ER P R I S E S A N D G OV E R N M E N T AGE NC IES S OLV E P R O BL E M S W I T H D E S I G N T H I N K I N G

Facing especially wicked problems, social-sector organizations are searching for powerful new methods to understand and address them. Design Thinking for the Greater Good goes in depth on both the how of using new tools and the why. Through ten stories of struggles and successes in fields such as health care, education, transportation, social services, and security, the authors show how collaborative creativity can shake up even the most entrenched bureaucracies—and provide a practical roadmap for readers to implement these tools. The design thinkers Jeanne Liedtka, Randy Salzman, and Daisy Azer explore how agencies like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Transportation and Security Administration, as well as organizations in Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom, have used the tools of design thinking to reduce risk, manage change, use resources more effectively, bridge the communication gap, and manage the competing demands of diverse stakeholders. These strategies are accessible to analytical and creative types alike, and their benefits extend throughout an organization. This book will help today’s leaders and thinkers implement these practices in the pursuit of creative solutions that are both innovative and achievable. JEANNE LIEDTKA

Reset

Business and Society in the New Social Landscape JAMES RUBIN AND BARIE CARMICHAEL H OW B USI N ESSES CA N REB UI LD TRUST I N A T R A N SFO RMED MEDI A EN VI RO N MEN T

As consumers, our access to—and appetite for—information about what and how we buy continues to grow. Powered by social media, we look at the companies behind the products and are disappointed when their actions do not meet our expectations. With engaged citizens acting as 24/7 auditors of corporate behavior, one company after another has been disrupted with astonishing velocity. Control of the corporate narrative has shifted to engaged stakeholders in a new social landscape, requiring a more radical change to business practices. “Reset hits the nail on the head with the increasingly self-evident idea that corporations must embrace the inherent risks in their business model when it is out of sync with prevailing public sentiment voiced by key stakeholders. The prescription is for corporate communication practitioners to close the gap, that is, to thoroughly know and clearly tell the story of what it does.” —Tim P. McMahon, Creighton University Heider College of Business

James Rubin and Barie Carmichael provide a strategic roadmap for businesses to navigate the new era, rebuild trust, and find their voice. Reset traces the global decline of trust in business concurrent with public expectations for business’s role in society. Today, businesses must bridge this widening gap. This requires strategic solutions anchored in a critical outside-in understanding of the stakeholder footprint of the business model. Reset offers case studies of reputations lost and found, suggesting strategies to mitigate risk and build the corporate brand. In this new era of instant transparency, corporate behavior has become the proof of corporate character for recruiting and retaining both customers and the next generation of talent. Offering essential advice for managing brand, reputation, and risk, this book is a guide to navigating the pitfalls and taking advantage of the opportunities of the reset. JAMES RUBIN

A Dozen Lessons for Entrepreneurs TREN GRIFFIN

WOR L D - C L ASS V ENTU R E CA PI TA L I STS A N D BU SINESS - FOUND ER COACH E S E X PL A I N T H E I R S U CC ESS IN T H E STA RT- U P WO R L D

From profiles and interviews with the world’s leading venture capitalists and high-profile coaches of business founders, A Dozen Lessons distills a set of bedrock methods for approaching business questions and creating value. The veteran business writer Tren Griffin takes the reader through the investment philosophies of VC luminaries such as Bill Gurley of Benchmark Capital, Marc Andreesen and Ben Horowitz of Andreesen Horowitz, and Jenny Lee of GGV Capital to draw out a set of guiding principles that successful businesses follow.

With insight and verve, Griffin argues that venture capital is, at a fundamental level, a service business that depends hugely on “human factors.” Griffin suggests that, among a number of common features, these investors succeeded because of their sense of hustle, keen judgment, hard work, and good luck. But most of all, they share a deep love of building businesses that goes beyond financial considerations. Griffin reminds us that success is a multidimensional phenomenon requiring talented people, customer traction, productive partnerships, and brand value. These features amplify one another, with incremental success attracting more attention, talent, and investment.

“When I first came to Silicon Valley, I was struck by how much people teach and learn from one another. In this book, Tren continues that spirit by sharing his own learning from others—and explains how investment judgments and decisions are made in the world of tech start-ups.” —Marc Andreessen, cofounder of Netscape and Andreessen Horowitz

Inside Terrorism

Third edition

BRUCE HOFFMAN A N E W EDI TI O N O F THE DEFI N I TI VE TEX T O N T ERRO RI SM

Bruce Hoffman’s Inside Terrorism has remained the seminal work for understanding the historical evolution of terrorism and the terrorist mind-set. In this revised third edition of his classic text, Hoffman analyzes the latest developments in global terrorism, offering insight into new adversaries, motivations, strategies, and tactics. He focuses on the rise of ISIS and the resilience of al-Qaeda; terrorist exploitation of the Internet and embrace of social media; radicalization of foreign fighters; and potential future trends, including the repercussions of a post-caliphate ISIS.

“A vitally important book. Bruce

Hoffman examines the demographics of contemporary terrorist leaders and recruits; the continued use of suicide bombers; and the likelihood of a chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear terrorist strike. He also considers the resurgence of violent antigovernment militants, including white supremacists and opponents of abortion. He argues that the war on terrorism did not end with Osama bin Laden’s death and that ongoing instability and strife in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Yemen, among other places, will both sustain terrorist movements and have broad implications for domestic and international security around the globe.

Hoffman has for decades been one of the world’s greatest scholars of terrorism, and this new edition of his classic study is impressively wide-ranging and authoritative. Covering key issues such as definition, historical evolution, and internationalization, it also addresses thematic subjects such as religious terrorism and suicide attacks.

The Best American Magazine Writing 2017

SID HOLT FOR THE AMERICAN SOCIETY OF MAGAZINE EDITORS, EDITOR

Introduction by Nicholas Thompson, editor in chief of Wired

With the work of reporters under fire, this year’s anthology of National Magazine Awards finalists and winners is a timely reminder of the power of journalism. Pieces from writers driven to explore America’s fault lines include Shane Bauer’s harrowing “My Four Months as a Private Prison Guard” (Mother Jones) and Sarah Stillman’s portrait of young people on sex-offender registries (The New Yorker). Nikole Hannah-Jones looks for a school for her daughter in a divided Brooklyn (New York Times Magazine), and Michael Chabon takes his thirteenyear-old son to Fashion Week in Paris (GQ). Pamela Colloff explores the 1966 University of Texas Tower shooting’s consequences for one survivor (Texas Monthly), and Siddhartha Mukherjee depicts the art and agony of oncology (New York Times Magazine).

Other selections take up the shocks of the election, including Matt Taibbi’s irreverent dispatches from the campaign trail (Rolling Stone) and George Saunders’s transfixing account of Trump’s rallies (The New Yorker). Jeffrey Goldberg talks through Obama’s legacy with the president (The Atlantic), Andrew Sullivan fears for democracy’s future (New York), and Gabriel Sherman relates how the women of Fox News exposed Roger Ailes’s predations (New York). Joining them are Rebecca Solnit’s wideranging Harper’s commentary, Becca Rothfeld on women waiting from Homer to Tinder (Hedgehog Review), David Quammen venturing to Yellowstone to consider the future of wild places (National Geographic), and Mac McClelland in search of the ivory-billed woodpecker in Cuba (Audubon).

LINOR GORALIK Edited by Ainsley Morse, Maria Vassileva, and Maya Vinokour

One of the first Russian writers to make a name for herself on the Internet, Linor Goralik writes conversational short works that conjure the absurd in all its forms, reflecting post-Soviet life and daily universals. Her mastery of the minimal, from spiritual rabbits and biblical zoos to poems about loss and comics about poetry, is on full display in this collection of works translated for the first time.

The thirty-year-old Piotr Alekseevich Marakulin lives a contented if humdrum life as a financial clerk in a Petersburg trading company. He is jolted out of his daily routine when, quite unexpectedly, he is accused of embezzlement and loses his job. This change of status brings him into contact with a number of women—the titular “sisters of the cross”—whose sufferings will lead him to question the ultimate meaning of the universe.

Writings from the Golden Age of Russian Poetry KONSTANTIN BATYUSHKOV

Presented and translated by Peter France

Konstantin Batyushkov was one of the great poets of the Golden Age of Russian literature in the early nineteenth century. His verses, famous for their musicality, earned him the admiration of Aleksandr Pushkin and generations of Russian poets to come. In Writings from the Golden Age of Russian Poetry, Peter France interweaves Batyushkov’s life and writings, presenting masterful new translations of his work with the compelling story of Batyushkov’s career as a soldier, diplomat, and poet and his tragic decline into mental illness at the age of thirty-four, making his verse accessible to English-speaking readers in a necessary exploration of a transitional moment for Russian literature. KONSTANTIN BATYUSHKOV

(1787–1855) was a celebrated

Russian poet and essayist. He served in three campaigns of the Napoleonic wars and was posted to Naples on

In Gogol’s Shadow ANDREI SINYAVSKY

Translated by Josh Billings

Andrei Sinyavsky wrote In Gogol’s Shadow in a Soviet labor camp. Opening with Gogol’s funeral, this unorthodox biography strips the man away from the myth. Sinyavsky challenges the Russian and Soviet view that Gogol was first and foremost a political writer, whose biting satire was part of a quest for his country’s salvation. In Gogol’s Shadow reveals a writer more obsessed with language than with politics, whose attempt to force his art into exposing social ills is undermined by his uncanny imagination and inventiveness. This irreverent analysis of Gogol’s life and work is a path-breaking exploration of literary creativity in times of strict censorship and ideological control. ANDREI SINYAVSKY

(1925–1997) was a writer of fiction and

nonfiction. After emigrating to France in 1973, he taught for many years as professor of Slavic studies at the Sorbonne in Paris. He is the author of Strolls with Pushkin (Columbia, 2016), The Russian Intelligentsia, and many other works. has translated works including

Silencing the Bomb

One Scientist’s Quest to Halt Nuclear Testing LYNN R. SYKES A L E A DI N G SC I EN TI ST RECA LLS HI S LI FELO N G BATTLE FO R A N UC LEA R TEST BA N TREATY

In December 2016, the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists moved their iconic “Doomsday Clock” forward to two and a half minutes to midnight, the latest it has been since 1952, the year of the first hydrogen bomb test. Ever since then, a group of scientists has sought to halt nuclear testing, advocating the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, still not ratified by China, Iran, North Korea—or the United States. The treaty rests on every nation’s ability to independently monitor the others’ nuclear activity. In Silencing the Bomb, the noted seismologist Lynn R. Sykes, a central figure in the development of the technology used in monitoring, tells the inside story behind scientists’ quest for disarmament.

“Lynn R. Sykes has a long record of using seismology to study the important question of how to

Called upon time and again to testify before Congress, Sykes and his colleagues were, for much of the Cold War, among the only people on earth able to say with certainty when and where a bomb was tested and how large it was. Methods of measuring earthquakes, researchers realized, could also detect underground nuclear explosions. When either side of the Iron Curtain attempted to sidestep disarmament or test ban treaties, Sykes was able to deploy the nascent science of plate tectonics to reveal the truth. Full of international intrigue and hard science used for the global good, Silencing the Bomb is a timely and necessary chronicle of the efforts to keep the clock from striking midnight.

That experience makes him uniquely qualified to present this cautionary tale about the sclerotic process by which well-founded scientific insight filters its way into the politically loaded formulation of national policy—particularly defense policy.” —Daniel Davis, Stony Brook University

The Future of Us

What the Dreams of Children Mean for Twenty-First-Century America IRWIN REDLENER, MD Foreword by Jane Pauley WHAT A P ED IAT R IC IA N ’ S L I FE O F A DVO CACY TE AC H ES US ABOUT H OW TO BET T E R S E RV E AM ER ICA’S C H IL D R EN

Raymond is a talented young artist who carries his work between homeless shelters in a tattered bag but has never even been inside a museum. He is emblematic of the children that the renowned pediatrician and children’s advocate Irwin Redlener has met over the course of his career. Inadequate education, barriers to health care, and crushing poverty make it overwhelmingly difficult for them to realize their dreams. In this memoir, Redlener draws on poignant personal experiences to investigate the failures of our educational and health systems—and how we must drastically change our approach if the next generation is to fulfill its potential.

Redlener’s winding career—from his work as a pediatrician in the Arkansas delta, to helping children in the aftermath of 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina, to cofounding the Children’s Health Fund with the musician Paul Simon—is his springboard for discussing the policy issues that hinder us from eradicating childhood poverty. He meets children who are largely invisible to the system—homeless, in extended foster care, or rarely able to see a doctor—yet who nonetheless dream of becoming paleontologists, artists, and marine biologists. Redlener’s recommendations for policy makers and concerned citizens show a way forward if we can come together to advocate for children. IRWIN REDLENER

“Excellently done, and will be an inspiration to those who read it. It particularly addresses the need to form collaborations with others involved in caring for children in their communities. I cannot name another individual who could have written this book, considering Redlener’s vast experience.” —Michael Kappy, University of Colorado School of Medicine

Inside Private Prisons

An American Dilemma in the Age of Mass Incarceration LAUREN-BROOKE EISEN

A CA N DI D LO O K AT THE P RI VATE- P RI SO N I N DUSTRY— A N D A N EX P LO RATI O N O F I TS FUTURE

“Lauren-Brooke Eisen illuminates the history of private prisons and their place in the current environment and the future of mass incarceration in America—which we are trying to minimize. She incorporates individual interviews with a collation of quantitative data to strike a balance between fine detail and the big picture of the complex and still-evolving discourse of private corrections: a vital discussion for the future of our criminal justice and immigration policies.” —Ernest Drucker, author of A Plague of Prisons: The Epidemiology of Mass Incarceration in America

When the tough-on-crime politics of the 1980s overcrowded state prisons, private companies saw potential profit in building and operating correctional facilities. Today more than a hundred thousand Americans are held in private prisons. Private prisons are criticized for making money off mass incarceration—to the tune of $5 billion in annual revenue. Based on Lauren-Brooke Eisen’s work as a prosecutor, journalist, and attorney at policy think tanks, Inside Private Prisons blends investigative reportage and quantitative and historical research to analyze privatized corrections in America. From divestment campaigns to boardrooms to immigration-detention centers, Eisen examines private prisons through the eyes of inmates, their families, correctional staff, policy makers, activists, undocumented immigrants, and corporate executives. Private prisons have become ground zero in the anti-mass-incarceration movement. Universities have divested from these companies, political candidates hesitate to accept their donations, and the Department of Justice tried to phase out its contracts with them. On the other side, impoverished rural towns often try to lure private prisons to create jobs. Neither an endorsement or a demonization, Inside Private Prisons details the complicated and perverse incentives rooted in the industry, from mandatory bed occupancy to vested interests in mass incarceration. This book is a blueprint for policy makers to reform practices and for concerned citizens to understand our changing carceral landscape. LAUREN-BROOKE EISEN

Modern Slavery

A Global Perspective SIDDHARTH KARA

THE H OR R OR S OF S L AV E RY R E V E A L E D —A N D H OW TO ABOL IS H IT

Siddharth Kara is a tireless chronicler of the human cost of slavery around the world. He has documented the realities of human trafficking and forced labor in order to reveal the degrading and dehumanizing system that strips people of their dignity for the sake of profit—and to link the suffering of the enslaved to the day-to-day lives of consumers in the West. In Modern Slavery, Kara draws on his many years of expertise to demonstrate the scope of slavery and offer a concrete path to its abolition.

From labor trafficking in the U.S. agricultural sector to sex trafficking in Nigeria to forced labor in the Thai seafood industry, Kara depicts the myriad faces and forms of slavery, providing a comprehensive grounding in the realities of modern-day servitude. Drawing on sixteen years of field research in more than sixty countries around the globe—including revelatory interviews with both the enslaved and their oppressors—Kara sets out how slavery is embedded in global supply chains. Enslavement offers immense profits at minimal risk through the exploitation of vulnerable subclasses whose brutalization is tacitly accepted. Kara has developed a business and economic analysis of slavery based on metrics and data that attest to the scale and functioning of these systems of exploitation. Beyond this data-driven approach, Modern Slavery unflinchingly portrays the torments endured by the powerless. This searing exposé documents one of humanity’s greatest wrongs and lays out the framework for a comprehensive plan to eradicate it. SIDDHARTH KARA

“This book provides an overview of the different forms of ​modern-day slavery, as well as a framework for the eradication of the phenomenon. Siddharth Kara uses case studies to exemplify the cultural norms that perpetuate trafficking and provides an​extensive analysis of data ​through a unique business-model approach. Using a combination of rigorous analysis and anecdotal stories, Kara delves into subfields in ​modern-day slavery that have rarely been covered.” —Jennifer Bryson Clark, coeditor of A Global Handbook on Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery

Cinematic Overtures

How to Read Opening Scenes ANNETTE INSDORF H OW THE O P EN I N GS O F FI LMS SHA P E VI EWERS’ E X PE R I EN C ES A N D EX P EC TATI O N S

A great movie’s first few minutes are the key to the rest of the film. Like the opening paragraphs of a novel, they draw the viewer in and set up the thematic concerns and stylistic approach that will be developed over the course of the narrative. A strong opening sequence leads the viewer to trust the filmmakers. Other times, opening shots are intentionally misleading as they invite alert, active participation with the film. In Cinematic Overtures, Annette Insdorf discusses the opening sequence so that viewers turn first impressions into deeper understanding of cinematic technique.

“Cinematic Overtures​is about

From Joe Gillis’s voice-over in Sunset Boulevard as he lies dead in a swimming pool to the hallucinatory opening of Apocalypse Now, from a stream-ofconsciousness montage as found in Hiroshima, mon amour to the slowly unfolding beginning of Schindler’s List, Cinematic Overtures analyzes opening shots from a range of Hollywood and international films. Insdorf pays close attention to how the viewer makes sense of these scenes and the cinematic world they are about to enter. As she looks at the strategies of opening scenes, Insdorf also examines how films critique and explore the power of the camera’s gaze. Along with analyses of opening scenes, the book offers a series of revelatory and surprising readings of individual films and the works of some of the leading directors of the past seventy-five years. Erudite but accessible, Cinematic Overtures will lead film scholars and ardent movie fans alike to greater attentiveness to those fleeting opening moments.

openings; it serves as an opening to a much wider field of films. It is, therefore, a kind of overture itself. It’s surprising that nobody has thought to do this before, and it leads to a fascinating subject ripe for in-depth discussion. This book’s​ strengths lie in the erudition Annette Insdorf brings to the subject, her extensive experience of writing about and teaching film, and the precision of her formal analysis.” —Ed Sikov, author of Film Studies: An Introduction

Garden Variety

The American Tomato from Corporate to Heirloom JOHN HOENIG WHAT T H E TOM ATO T E AC H E S U S A BO U T A M E R I CA N FOO D C ULT UR E

Chopped in salads, slathered on pizza and pasta, squeezed onto burgers and fries, and aisles of roma, cherry, beefsteak, and heirloom: where would American food, fast and slow, high and low, be without the tomato? The tomato sums up the best and worst of American cuisine: though the plastic-looking corporate tomato is the hallmark of industrial agriculture, its history also encompasses farmers’ markets and home gardens. Garden Variety illuminates culinary culture from 1800 to the present, going beyond mass-produced homogeneity to demonstrate the persistence of diverse food cultures.

John Hoenig explores the path by which the tomato went from a rare seasonal crop to America’s favorite vegetable. He pays particular attention to the noncorporate tomato. During the twentieth century, as food production, processing, and distribution became increasingly centralized, the tomato remained the king of the vegetable garden and, in recent years, has become the centerpiece of alternative food cultures. Reading seed catalogs, menus, and cookbooks, Hoenig challenges the extent to which branding and advertising dominated twentieth-century American life. He emphasizes the importance of tomatoes to numerous immigrant groups and their influence on the American diet. Garden Variety highlights the limits on corporations’ ability to shape what we eat, inviting us to rethink the history of our foodways and to expand the palate of American cuisine. JOHN HOENIG

Eating Ethically

Religion and Science for a Better Diet JONATHAN K. CRANE A N ETHI CA L CASE FO R EATI N G WELL BY EATI N G I N M O DERATI O N

We are eating ourselves to death in many ways, both bodily and societally. Few activities are as essential to human flourishing as eating, and fewer still are as ethically intricate. Eating well is particularly confusing. Conflicting recommendations, contradictory scientific studies, and the confounding environmental and economic factors that surround us make choices difficult. Eating “just right” is complex for the contemporary American, living amid excess and faced with moral, medical, and environmental consequences that influence our eating choices. A different eating strategy is needed, one grounded in our biology but also philosophically sound, theologically cogent, and personally achievable.

“An accomplished ethicist and philosopher, Crane crafts a careful argument for what it means to

Eating Ethically provides evidence and arguments for more adaptive eating practices. Drawing on religion, medicine, philosophy, cognitive science, art, ethics, and more, Jonathan K. Crane distinguishes among the eater, the eaten, and eating to promote a radical reorientation away from external cues and toward internal ones. From classic philosophy on appetite to contemporary studies of satiation, from the science of metabolism to metaphysics and theology, Crane intertwines ancient wisdom and cutting-edge scholarship to show that eating well is not only a biological necessity but also an integral facet of spiritual and social health. He draws on insights from Judaism, Christianity, and Islam that promote personal health and social cohesion. Eating Ethically, grounded in science, tradition, and our internal necessities, points us toward eating well.

eat well. Following a trajectory set by Michael Pollan and others, Eating Ethically is set apart by its interdisciplinarity, using biblical scholarship, nutritional science, biochemistry, and medicine to effectively buttress the idea that eating is an activity that resonates in both personal and social contexts.” —Benjamin Zeller, coeditor of Religion,

The Sustainable City STEVEN COHEN

AN ACC ESS IB L E GUIDE TO T H E PO L I CY A N D MA NAGEM ENT OF UR BA N S U STA I N A BI L I T Y

Living sustainably is not just about preserving the wilderness or keeping nature pristine. The transition to a green economy depends on cities. For the first time in human history, the majority of the people on the planet live in urban areas. If we are to avert climate catastrophe, we will need our cities to coexist with nature without destroying it. Many places are already investing in the infrastructure of the future—including renewable energy, energy efficiency, mass and personal transit, and advanced waste management—but the modern city still has a long way to go.

In The Sustainable City, Steven Cohen provides a broad and engaging overview of the urban systems of the twenty-first century, surveying policies and projects already under way in cities around the world and pointing to more ways progress can be made. Cohen discusses the sustainable city from an organizational-management and public-policy perspective that emphasizes the local level, looking at case studies of existing legislation, programs, and public-private partnerships that strive to align modern urban life and sustainability. From waste management in Beijing to energy infrastructure in Africa to public space in Washington, D.C., there are concrete examples of what we can do right now. Cohen synthesizes the disparate strands of sustainable city planning in an approachable and applicable guide that highlights how these issues touch our lives on a daily basis, whether the transportation we take, where our energy comes from, or what becomes of our food waste. This book has invaluable lessons for anyone seeking to link public policy to promoting a sustainable lifestyle. STEVEN COHEN

“At the city level, the question of how to handle water resources, energy use, and transportation is not abstract but concrete. Citizens, planners, business people, and policy makers can easily see the problems and how a sustainable approach would be beneficial. Steven Cohen draws on his extensive teaching and public management experience in documenting the kinds of sustainability measures that have been successful in major cities around the world, and he points to what other cities realistically can do in the future.” —Michael E.

T H E PATH TO THE RECO N STRUC TI O N O F THE ECO N O MY I N T HE SERVI C E O F BOTH GROWTH A N D I N C LUSI O N

“This is a significant contribution to the central debates of our time, laying out a fresh vision of finance and, more broadly, of an inclusive, democratic market economy.” —Dani Rodrik, Harvard University

“Tamara Lothian makes a transformative contribution to the current debate on the role of finance—viewing it not in terms of ‘more state’ or ‘more market’ but of the need for innovations in the legal forms that structure markets, to bring together both economic progress and meaningful inclusion.” —Sanjay G. Reddy, the New School

Economic stagnation, financial crisis, and increasing inequality have provoked worldwide debate about the reshaping of the market economy. But few are willing to risk challening dominant ideas and entrenched structures. Right-wing populism has stepped into the void created by a failure to imagine structural alternatives. Tamara Lothian offers a deeper view, probing institutional innovations that would reignite economic growth by democratizing the market. Progressives have traditionally focused only on the demand side of the economy, abandoning the supply side to conservatives. Law and the Wealth of Nations offers a progressive approach to the supply side of the economy and proposes innovation in our fundamental economic arrangements. Lothian asks how finance can serve broad-based economic growth rather than serving only itself. She shows how the reform of finance can lead into the democratization of the economy. How can we ensure that the most advanced, knowledge-intensive practices spread throughout the economy rather than remaining in the hands of the entrepreneurial and technological elite? How can we anchor greater economic equality and empowerment in the way we organize the economy rather than just trying to diminish inequalities after the fact? How we can revise legal thought and economic theory to develop the intellectual equipment that these tasks require? Law and the Wealth of Nations will appeal to all who are searching for ways to think practically about change in our economic and political institutions. TAMARA LOTHIAN

The Art of Sanctions A View from the Field RICHARD NEPHEW A PR AC T IT IONER ’ S G U I D E TO W H AT M A K E S SA N C T I ON S S U CC EED OR FAIL

Economic sanctions are intended to be a nonmilitary means for states to force their prerogatives on other states, entities, and individuals. Yet sanctions are ineffective if executed without a clear strategy that is responsive to the nature and changing behavior of the target. In The Art of Sanctions, Richard Nephew offers a much-needed practical framework that focuses not just on the design of sanctions but, crucially, on how to decide when sanctions have achieved maximum effectiveness and how to improve them along the way.

Nephew—a lead participant in the design and implementation of sanctions on Iran—develops guidelines for interpreting targets’ responses to sanctions based on two critical factors: pain and resolve. The efficacy of sanctions lies in the application of pain against a target, but targets may have significant resolve to resist, tolerate, or overcome this pain. Understanding the interplay of pain and resolve is central to using sanctions successfully and humanely. With attention to these two key variables, and to how they change over the course of the sanctions regime, policy makers can pinpoint when diplomatic intervention is likely to succeed or when escalation is necessary. Focusing on lessons from sanctions on both Iran and Iraq, Nephew provides policy makers with practical guidance on how to calibrate pain and measure resolve in the service of strong and successful sanctions regimes.

In Search of the Lost Orient

An Interview

OLIVIER ROY Translated by C. Jon Delogu Foreword by Jean-Louis Schlegel and Olivier Mongin A L E GEN DA RY I N TERP RETER O F I SLA MI C CI V I L I Z ATI O N S REFLEC TS O N HI S J O URN EYS

“Olivier Roy is one of the most important analysts of political Islam working today, arguably the single most insightful voice in a vast field. In Search of the Lost Orient provides a complete intellectual life story and argues that empirical research and a focus on concrete social practices must be the basis by which Islam and its intersection with politics must be understood. An engagingly written, impressive book that provides a rare and unique view of political Islam and one of its major thinkers.” —Benjamin Brower, the University of Texas at Austin

Olivier Roy is one of the world’s leading experts on political Islam. But he is not only a scholar— he is also a traveler. Roy’s keen and iconoclastic insights emerge from a lifetime of study combined with intrepid exploration through Afghanistan and Central Asia. In this book-length interview with Jean-Louis Schlegel of the magazine Esprit, Roy tells the lively and colorful story of his many adventures and discoveries in a variety of social and political settings and how they have come to shape his understanding of the Islamic world and its complex recent history.

In Search of the Lost Orient is a candid, personal account of the experiences that led Roy to challenge his youthful ideas of an untouched, romanticized East and build a new intellectual framework. Alongside tales of backpacking from Paris to Kabul, his Afghan decade during the Soviet invasion, and official travel to post-Soviet Central Asia in the 1990s, Roy reflects on the nature of political and humanitarian engagement in this part of the world. He recounts his formative years, education, and developing political commitments and his evolving place within France’s shifting intellectual and religious cultures. Both a significant intellectual autobiography and a compelling travelogue, In Search of the Lost Orient offers a striking testimony to the many facets of an exceptional thinker. OLIVIER ROY

Tunisia

An Arab Anomaly SAFWAN M. MASRI Foreword by Lisa Anderson WHAT S ETS T UNIS IA A PA RT I N T H E A R A B WO R L D

The Arab Spring began and ended with Tunisia. In a region beset by repression, humanitarian disasters, and civil war, Tunisia’s Jasmine Revolution alone led to a peaceful transition to democracy. Within four short years, Tunisians passed a progressive constitution, held fair elections, and ushered in the country’s first democratically elected president. But did Tunisia simply avoid the misfortunes that befell its neighbors, or were there particular features that set the country apart and made it a special case?

In Tunisia: An Arab Anomaly, Safwan M. Masri examines the factors that have shaped the country’s exceptional experience. He traces Tunisia’s history of reform in the realms of education, religion, and women’s rights, arguing that the seeds for today’s relatively liberal society were planted as far back as the nineteenth century. Masri argues that this history set Tunisia on a separate trajectory from the rest of the region. The narrative explores notions of identity, the relationship between Islam and society, and the role of religion in shaping educational, social, and political agendas across the Arab region. Based on interviews with dozens of experts, leaders, activists, and ordinary citizens and a synthesis of a rich body of knowledge, Masri provides a sensitive, often personal account that is critical for understanding not only Tunisia but also the broader Arab world. SAFWAN M. MASRI

“Safwan M. Masri offers an informed history and an astute assessment of the case of Tunisia, specifically focusing on the country’s distinctive blend of modern Islam and secular democracy. He provides an extended and authoritative contemplation and a unique synthesis of the phenomenon that is Tunisia.” —Brinkley Messick, Columbia University

“On the Origin of Species” as a Work in Progress PHILIP LIEBERMAN A VOYAGE THRO UGH CO N TEMP O RA RY S CI E NTI FI C RESEA RC H THAT REVEA LS DA RW I N ’ S O N GO I N G RELEVA N C E

Few people have done as much to change how we view the world as Charles Darwin. Yet On the Origin of Species is more cited than read. Some of it is considered outdated; in some ways, it has been consigned to the nineteenth century. In The Theory That Changed Everything, the renowned cognitive scientist Philip Lieberman demonstrates that there is no better guide to the world’s living things than Darwin, as the phenomena that he observed are still being explored at the frontiers of science.

“An awesome accompanying book

In a wide-ranging voyage from Darwin’s transformative trip aboard the Beagle to Lieberman’s own sojourns in the remotest regions of the Himalayas, this book relates contemporary findings to the major concepts of Darwinian theory. Drawing on his own research into the evolution of human linguistic and cognitive abilities, Lieberman explains the paths that adapted human anatomy to language. He demystifies the role of recently identified transcriptional and epigenetic factors encoded in DNA, explaining how nineteenth-century Swedish famines alternating with years of plenty caused survivors’ grandchildren to die many years short of their life expectancy. With conversational clarity and memorable examples, Lieberman relates the insights that led to groundbreaking discoveries in both Darwin’s time and our own while asking provocative questions about what Darwin would have made of controversial issues today.

Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods Early Humans and the Origins of Religion E. FULLER TORREY HOW R EL IGION EM ER G E D FR O M T H E BRA IN’ S EVOLUT ION

Religions and mythologies from around the world teach that God or gods created humans. Atheist, humanist, and materialist critics, meanwhile, have attempted to turn theology on its head, claiming that religion is a human invention. E. Fuller Torrey draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research to propose a startling answer to the ultimate question. Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods locates the origin of gods within the human brain, arguing that religious belief is a byproduct of evolution.

Based on an idea originally proposed by Charles Darwin, Torrey marshals evidence that the emergence of gods was an incidental consequence of several evolutionary factors. Using data ranging from ancient skulls and artifacts to brain imaging, primatology, and child-development studies, this book traces how new cognitive abilities gave rise to new behaviors. For instance, autobiographical memory, the ability to project ourselves backward and forward in time, led to comprehension of mortality, spurring belief in an alternative to death. Torrey details the neurobiological sequence that explains why the gods appeared when they did, connecting archeological findings to cognitive developments. This book does not dismiss belief but rather presents religious belief as an inevitable outcome of brain evolution. Providing clear and accessible explanations of evolutionary neuroscience, Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods sheds new light on the mechanics of our deepest mysteries. E. FULLER TORREY

Facing the Abyss

American Literature and Culture in the 1940s GEORGE HUTCHINSON T H E “ G REATEST GEN ERATI O N ” REVI SI TED THRO UGH T H E LI TERATURE A N D A RT THAT TRA N SFO RMED A M E R I CA N C ULTURE A N D SO C I ETY

Mythologized as the era of the “Greatest Generation,” the 1940s are frequently understood as a less complicated time. Yet just below the surface, a sense of dread, alienation, and the haunting specter of radical evil permeated American art and literature. Writers returned home from World War II and confronted bigotry, existential guilt, ecological concerns, and fear about the nature and survival of the human race. In Facing the Abyss, George Hutchinson offers readings of individual works and the larger intellectual and cultural scene to reveal the 1940s as a period of profound accomplishment.

“Bringing together art, literature, philosophy, and music, Hutchinson

Facing the Abyss examines the relation of aesthetics to politics, the idea of universalism, and the connections among authors across racial, ethnic, and gender divisions. Modernist and avant-garde styles were absorbed into popular culture as writers and artists turned away from social realism to emphasize the process of artistic creation. African American and Jewish novelists critiqued racism and anti-Semitism, women writers pushed back on wartime misogyny, and authors such as Gore Vidal and Tennessee Williams reflected a new openness in the depiction of homosexuality. Hutchinson argues that despite the individualized experiences depicted in these works, a common belief in art’s ability to communicate the universal in particulars united them. Hutchinson’s capacious view of American literary and cultural history masterfully weaves together a wide range of creative and intellectual expression into a sweeping new narrative of this pivotal decade.

has created a kind of critical mosaic that produces insights that open up the 1940s as a cultural field. The juxtapositions of unconnected figures induce a new vision of the era and new dimensions of the authors and works discussed. It is a work of exceptionally deft intellectual choreography, conducted with enviable precision and concision.” —Ross Posnock, Columbia University

Hidden Atrocities

Japanese Germ Warfare and American Obstruction of Justice at the Tokyo Trial JEANNE GUILLEMIN THE UNTOL D STORY O F T H E U. S . R O L E I N COV E R I N G UP I MPER IAL JAPANES E G E R M WA R FA R E

In the aftermath of World War II, the Allied intent to bring Axis crimes to light led to both the Nuremberg trials and their counterpart in Tokyo, the International Military Tribunal of the Far East. Yet the Tokyo trial failed to prosecute imperial Japanese leaders for the very worst of war crimes: inhumane medical experimentation, including vivisection, pathogen and chemical tests that rivaled Nazi atrocities, and mass attacks using plague, anthrax, and cholera that killed thousands of Chinese civilians. In Hidden Atrocities, Jeanne Guillemin goes behind the scenes at the trial to reveal the American obstruction that denied justice to Japan’s victims.

Responsibility for Japan’s secret germ-warfare program, organized as Unit 731 in Harbin, China, extended to top government leaders and many respected scientists, all of whom escaped indictment. Instead, motivated by early Cold War tensions, U.S. military intelligence in Tokyo insinuated itself into the Tokyo trial by blocking prosecution access to key witnesses and then classifying incriminating documents. Washington decision makers, supported by the American occupation leader General Douglas MacArthur, sought to acquire Japan’s biologicalwarfare expertise to gain an advantage over the Soviet Union. Ultimately, U.S. national-security goals left the victims of Unit 731 without vindication. Guillemin’s vivid account of the cover-up at the Tokyo trial shows how without guarantees of transparency, power politics can jeopardize international justice, with persistent consequences. is senior advisor at the Security Studies

“Jeanne Guillemin is a recognized, well-published leading authority on the history of biological warfare in the United States. No other book delves this deeply into the behindthe-scenes machinations of U.S. military intelligence in Japan and the inner circle of presidential advisors in Washington to keep Unit 731 and its horrendous acts from being exposed to the light of justice in the Tokyo Trials.” —Walter E.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Heritage and Adaptation PAUL U. UNSCHULD Translated by Bridie Andrews A CO N C I SE A N D CO MP ELLI N G I N TRO DUC TI O N TO THE H I STORY A N D P HI LOSO P HY O F C HI N ESE MEDI C I N E

A leading authority explains the origins and history of Chinese medicine from its beginnings in antiquity to today. Paul U. Unschuld describes medicine’s close connection with culture and politics throughout Chinese history. He brings together texts, techniques, and worldviews to understand changing Chinese attitudes toward healing and the significance of traditional Chinese medicine in both China and the Western world. “This small volume by one of the most distinguished living historians of traditional Chinese medicine is a tour de force of specialist knowledge.” —Victor H. Mair, University of Pennsylvania

Unschuld reveals the emergence of a Chinese medical tradition built around a new understanding of the human being, considering beliefs in the influence of cosmology, numerology, and the supernatural on the health of the living. He describes the variety of therapeutic approaches in Chinese culture, the history of pharmacology and techniques such as acupuncture, and the global exchange of medical knowledge. Insights are offered into the twentiethcentury decline of traditional medicine, as military defeats caused reformers and revolutionaries to import medical knowledge as part of the construction of a new China. Unschuld also recounts the reception of traditional Chinese medicine in the West since the 1970s, where it is often considered an alternative to Western medicine at the same time as China seeks to incorporate elements of its medical traditions into a scientific framework. This concise and compelling introduction to medical thought and history suggests that Chinese medicine is also a guide to Chinese civilization. PAUL U. UNSCHULD

Chinese Script

History, Characters, Calligraphy THOMAS O. HÖLLMANN Translated by Maximiliane Donicht A S U CC INC T, SWEEPI N G I N T R O D U C T I O N TO W R I T I N G I N CH INES E C ULT UR E

In this brisk and accessible history, the sinologist Thomas O. Höllmann explains the development of the Chinese writing system and its importance in literature, religion, art, and other aspects of culture. Spanning the earliest epigraphs and oracle bones to writing and texting on computers and mobile phones today, Chinese Script is a wide-ranging and versatile introduction to the complexity and beauty of written text and calligraphy in the Chinese world. Höllmann delves into the origins of Chinese script and its social and political meanings across millennia of history. He recounts the social history of the writing system; written and printed texts; and the use of writing materials such as paper, silk, ink, brush, and printing techniques. The book sheds light on the changing role of literacy and education; the politics of orthographic reform; and the relationship of Chinese writing to non-Han Chinese languages and cultures. Höllmann explains the inherent complexity of Chinese script, demonstrating why written Chinese expresses meaning differently than oral language and the subtleties of the relationship between spoken word and written text. He explores calligraphy as an art, the early letter press, and other ways of visually representing Chinese languages. Chinese Script also provides handy illustrations of the concepts discussed, showing how ideographs function and ways to decipher them visually. THOMAS O. HÖLLMANN

Race on the Brain

What Implicit Bias Gets Wrong About the Struggle for Racial Justice JONATHAN KAHN T H E PERI LS O F SEEK I N G A SC I EN TI FI C C URE-A LL FO R R AC I SM

“Race on the Brain offers a provocative examination of contemporary discussions of race, racism, and law. Kahn carefully assesses the scientific framework of implicit bias, highlighting its laudable intent and aspirations while revealing hidden challenges. This is a thoughtful and timely contribution that will surely enrich ongoing conversations on race and human cognition and their socio-legal significance.” ­—Osagie K. Obasogie, author of Blinded by Sight: Seeing Race Through the Eyes of the Blind

Of the many obstacles to racial justice in America, none has received more recent attention than the one that lurks in our subconscious. The concept of implicit bias has taken center stage. Millions have taken online tests purporting to show the deep, invisible roots of their prejudice. When a recent study claimed to have found a drug that reduced implicit bias, it was only the starkest example of a pervasive trend. But what do we risk when we seek the simplicity of a technological diagnosis—and solution—for racism? What do we miss when we locate racism in our biology and our brains rather than in our history and our social practices?

In Race on the Brain, Jonathan Kahn argues that implicit bias has grown into a master narrative of race relations—with profound if unintended negative consequences. While useful to understand particular types of behavior, implicit bias is only one among many tools. An uncritical embrace, to the exclusion of power relations and structural racism, undermines civic responsibility for addressing the problem by turning it over to experts. Technological interventions are premised on a color-blind ideal and run the risk of erasing history, denying present reality, and obscuring accountability. Kahn cautions us against seeing implicit social cognition as a panacea for addressing longstanding problems. A bracing corrective to what has become a commonsense understanding of the power of prejudice, Race on the Brain challenges us all to engage more thoughtfully and more democratically in the difficult task of promoting racial justice.

Down and Out in New Orleans

Transgressive Living in the Informal Economy PETER J. MARINA HOW T H OS E ON T H E M A R G I N S CO PE W I T H T H E CON T R AD IC T IONS O F L I FE I N N E W O R L E A N S

In the years since Hurricane Katrina, modern-day bohemians have flocked to New Orleans but often find themselves skirting poverty. The sociologist and ethnographer Peter J. Marina does not merely interview these spirited urban misfits—he lives among them. Down and Out in New Orleans follows their journeys, depicting the lives of those on the social fringes as they carve out unique paths in a resilient city.

Modeling his work after George Orwell’s Down and Out in Paris and London, Marina explores an unfamiliar side of the “new” New Orleans. In 1920s Paris, Orwell witnessed an influx of locals and outsiders seeking authenticity while struggling to live with bourgeois society. Marina finds a similar ambivalence in New Orleans: a tourism-dependent city whose commerce caters largely to well-heeled natives and upper-class travelers, where many creative locals and wanderers have remained outsiders, willingly or otherwise. Marina finds work as a bartender, street mime, and poet. Along the way, he visits homeless shelters, squats in abandoned buildings, attends rituals in cemeteries, and befriends writers, musicians, occultists, and artists as they look for creative solutions to the contradictory demands of late capitalism. Marina does for New Orleans what Orwell did for Paris a century earlier, providing a rigorous, unrelenting, and original glimpse into the subcultures of a city in rapid change. PETER J. MARINA

“Peter J. Marina provides an outstanding introduction to the sociology of transgression through his fascinating portrayal of life on the edge in post-Katrina New Orleans. His sociological insight, ethnographic ability, and love of the city uniquely position him to write about the sociology of living ‘down and out’ in the Crescent City.” —David Gladstone, University of New Orleans

American Capitalism New Histories

SVEN BECKERT AND CHRISTINE DESAN, EDITORS E SSAYS FRO M THE FO REFRO N T O F THE N EW HI STO RY O F CA P I TA LI SM

“Sven Beckert and Christine Desan are leaders in the burgeoning history of capitalism field, and they have put together a volume of outstanding scholars whose essays, in their chronological reach and subject matter, show this new literature at its best. A very fine and promising collection.” —Steven Hahn, New York University

The United States has long epitomized capitalism. From its enterprising shopkeepers, wildcat banks, violent slave plantations, and raucous commodities trade to its world-spanning multinationals, its massive factories, and the centripetal power of New York in the world of finance, America has shaped political economy for two centuries and more. But an understanding of “capitalism” is as elusive as it is urgent. What does it mean to make capitalism a subject of historical inquiry? What is its potential across multiple disciplines, alongside different methodologies, and in a range of geographic and chronological settings? And how does a focus on capitalism change our understanding of American history?

American Capitalism collects cutting-edge research from prominent scholars, sampling the latest work in the field. Rather than a monolithic perspective, these broad-minded and rigorous essays venture new angles on finance and debt, women’s rights, slavery and political economy, labor, and regulation, among other topics. Together, the essays suggest emerging themes in the field: a fascination with capitalism as it is made by public authority, how it is experienced in the detail of daily life, how it spreads across the globe, and how it can be reconceptualized as a discrete and quantified object. A major statement for a wide-open field, this book demonstrates the breadth and scope of the work the history of capitalism can provoke. SVEN BECKERT

Democracy and the Welfare State

The Two Wests in the Age of Austerity ALICE KESSLER-HARRIS AND MAURIZIO VAUDAGNA, EDITORS

WHAT R EM AINS OF T W E N T I ET H - C E N T U RY S O C I A L DE MOC R ACY AND W H E R E I T M I G H T ST I L L L E A D U S

After World War II, states on both sides of the Atlantic enacted comprehensive social benefits to protect working people, linking social welfare to citizenship and upholding equality as the glue that held nations together. Though the “two Wests,” Europe and the United States, differ in crucial respects, they share a common history of social rights and welfare capitalism. But in a new age of global inequality, welfare-state retrenchment, and economic austerity, can capitalism and democracy still coexist? In this book, leading historians and social scientists from both sides of the Atlantic rethink the history of the welfare state in the United States and Europe in light of global economic transformations. They ask how changes in the distribution of wealth reshape the meaning of citizenship in a post-welfare-state era. Democracy and the Welfare State features essays, as well as interviews with Ira Katznelson and Frances Fox Piven, that explore the lives of migrant workers, gender and the family in welfare policies, the fate of the European Union, and the prospects of social movements, making for essential reading on the legacy of social welfare. ALICE KESSLER-HARRIS

“Linking questions of democracy to those of social provision through the generative concept of the ‘Two Wests,’ Kessler-Harris, Vaudagna, and their contributors offer a primer on the crisis of the welfare state, the grip of austerity politics, and the rise of right-wing nationalism that mark our times.

Earth at Risk

Natural Capital and the Quest for Sustainability CLAUDE HENRY AND LAURENCE TUBIANA A PR AGMATI C P LA N FO R THE TRA N SI TI O N TO S U STA I N A B I LI TY

“The authors are ideally situated to understand the ins and outs of the climate crisis, and in this book they deliver an insightful overview, one that will be useful to any student of our dilemma.” —Bill McKibben, author of The End of Nature

“Claude Henry and Laurence Tubiana do more than explain why action is urgently needed to conserve the world’s natural capital. They also explain why some previous efforts failed, why others succeeded, and how, drawing from the lessons of both kinds of experience, the world can achieve sustainable development.” —Scott Barrett, Columbia University

We are squandering our planet’s natural capital—its biodiversity, water and soil, and energy sources—at a blistering pace. Major changes must be made to steer our planet and people away from our current, doomed course. Though technology has been one of the drivers of the current trend of unsustainable development, it is also one of the essential tools for remedying it. Earth at Risk maps out the necessary transition to sustainability, detailing the innovations in technology, along with law, science, institutional design, and economics, that can and must be put to use to avert environmental catastrophe.

Claude Henry and Laurence Tubiana begin with a measure of the costs of ecological damage—the erosion of biodiversity; air, water, and soil pollution; and the wide-reaching effects of climate change— and then consider the solutions that are either now available or close on the horizon that may lead to a more sustainable global trajectory. What marketbased tools can be used to promote clean growth? How can renewable energy help us decrease our use of fossil fuels? Is international agreement on climate goals possible? Henry and Tubiana tackle a range of urgent questions, emphasizing possibilities for—and obstacles to—implementation and action. Building on the experience of the most significant climate negotiation of the decade, they show what a world organized along the principles of sustainability could look like. CLAUDE HENRY,

Ethical Asset Valuation and the Good Society CHRISTIAN GOLLIER

AN E CONOM IST ’S GU I D E TO E VA LUAT I N G I N V E ST M E NT I N TER M S OF T H E P U BL I C G O O D

For all of their focus on asset prices, financial economists rarely ask if assets are priced ethically—that is, if their prices are compatible with the public good. Yet in a world facing major, possibly catastrophic problems, it is more important than ever that we allocate capital to projects that will benefit society as a whole, not just today but far into the future. In this book, Christian Gollier develops a powerful method for transforming societal goals into the cornerstone of our financial decision making.

Ethical Asset Valuation and the Good Society starts by stating transparent moral principles and, from these, derives simple rules that can be used to evaluate saving and investment decisions. Rather than trying to explain observed asset prices, Gollier derives what these prices ought to be in order to direct capital toward socially desirable investments. He focuses on the two prices that drive most financial decisions— the price of time as reflected in the interest rate, and the price of risk—and explores the role these play in long-term planning. If investment projects in renewable energy could be financed at a lower interest rate than those linked to fossil fuels, for instance, the energy transition would be easier to accomplish. Gollier suggests ways to shift investment toward the future through the discounting of the valuation of assets and investments with long-term benefits. In this sophisticated but accessible work, Gollier builds a bridge between welfare economics and finance theory to provide a framework for ethical valuation.

Birth of a New Earth

The Radical Politics of Environmentalism ADRIAN PARR H OW A N EMA N C I PATO RY EN VI RO N MEN TA LI SM CA N R E V I TA LI Z E DEMO C RACY

In response to unprecedented environmental degradation, activists and popular movements have risen up to fight the crisis of climate change. The environmental movement has undeniably influenced even its adversaries, with the language of sustainability reaching corporate mission statements and government agendas. However, success has prompted soul-searching and questioning of the politics of environmentalism. Is it a revolutionary movement that opposes the current system? Or is it reformist, changing the system by working within it?

In Birth of a New Earth, Adrian Parr argues that this is a false choice, calling for a shift from an opposition between revolution and incremental change to a renewed collective imagination. Environmental destruction is at its core a problem of democratization and decolonization. It requires mobilizing an alternative political vision. Birth of a New Earth locates the emancipatory work of environmental politics in solidarities that can fuse opposing political strategies and paradigms by working both inside and outside the prevailing system. She discusses experiments in food sovereignty, collaborative natural-resource management, and public-interest design initiatives that test new models of economic democratization. Ultimately, environmental politics is the refusal to surrender life to the violence of global capitalism, corporate governance, and militarism. This defiance can serve as the source for the birth of a new earth.

“Birth of a New Earth is one of those rare and brilliant books that critiques the ongoing destruction of the environment in a writing style that is lyrical, compassionate, and as accessible as it is informative. Parr masterfully weaves together a language of critique and possibility and in doing so makes a convincing case for environmental and economic justice on a global scale and offers a powerful argument for rethinking the meaning and practice of politics.” —Henry Giroux, author of America at War with Itself

Speculative Taxidermy

Natural History, Animal Surfaces, and Art in the Anthropocene GIOVANNI ALOI HOW NONR EAL IST IC TAX I D E R M Y S U R FACE S I N CON T EM P OR ARY ART CA N L E A D U S TO R ET H I N K HU MAN-ANIM AL R ELAT I O N S

Taxidermy, once the province of natural history and dedicated to the pursuit of lifelike realism, has recently resurfaced in the world of contemporary art, culture, and interior design. In Speculative Taxidermy, Giovanni Aloi offers a comprehensive mapping of the discourses and practices that have enabled the emergence of taxidermy in contemporary art. Drawing on the speculative turn in philosophy and recovering past alternative histories of art and materiality from a biopolitical perspective, Aloi theorizes speculative taxidermy: a powerful interface that unlocks new ethical and political opportunities in human-animal relationships and speaks to how animal representation conveys the urgency of climate change, capitalist exploitation, and mass extinction.

A resolutely nonanthropocentric take on the materiality of one of the most controversial mediums in art, this approach relentlessly questions past and present ideas of human separation from the animal kingdom. It situates taxidermy as a powerful interface between humans and animals, rooted in a shared ontological and physical vulnerability. Carefully considering a select number of key examples including the work of Nandipha Mntambo, Maria Papadimitriou, Mark Dion, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Roni Horn, Oleg Kulik, Steve Bishop, Snæbjörnsdóttir/Wilson, and Cole Swanson, Speculative Taxidermy contextualizes the resilient presence of animal skin in the gallery space as a productive opportunity to rethink ethical and political stances in human-animal relationships.

“Speculative Taxidermy makes a fascinating contribution to the nonhuman turn and invites us to find new ways to envisage the relationships between human and nonhuman animals.” —Hannah Stark, University of Tasmania

“The first volume to focus on animals in a media-based subset of contemporary art, Speculative Taxidermy offers a lucid and compelling account of why animals have become serious subjects in art and with what consequences.” —Susan McHugh, University of New England

South Korea at the Crossroads

Autonomy and Alliance in an Era of Rival Powers SCOTT A. SNYDER

CH A RTI N G SO UTH KO REA’ S FO REI GN - P O LI CY C HO I C ES I N A N I N C REASI N GLY UN C ERTA I N ASI A

Against the backdrop of China’s influence and North Korea’s growing nuclear capability, South Korea faces a set of strategic choices that will shape its economic prospects and national security. In South Korea at the Crossroads, Scott A. Snyder examines fifty years of South Korean foreign policy and offers predictions—and a prescription—for the future. Pairing a historical perspective with a shrewd view of today’s political landscape, Snyder contends that South Korea’s best strategy remains investing in a robust alliance with the United States.

“South Korea at the Crossroads provides a lucid and expansive coverage of the major forces that have shaped and influenced South Korean diplomacy since its founding in 1948. Scott A. Snyder emphasizes the contradictory forces that have shaped Seoul’s foreign policy, such as the pluses and minuses of geography, nationalism and internationalism, and autonomy and alliance through each administration. This volume will stand out as the best single-volume study on South Korean foreign policy.” —Chung Min Lee, Yonsei University

Snyder begins with South Korea’s effort in the 1960s to offset the risk of abandonment by the United States during the Vietnam War and the subsequent crisis in the alliance during the 1970s. A series of shifts in South Korean foreign relations followed, from the “Nordpolitik” engagement with the Soviet Union and China at the end of the Cold War; to Kim Dae Jung’s “Sunshine Policy,” designed to bring North Korea into the international community; to “trustpolitik,” which sought to foster diplomacy with North Korea and Japan; to changes in South Korea’s relationship with the United States. Despite its rise as a leader in international financial, development, and climate-change forums, South Korea will likely still require the commitment of the United States to guarantee its security. Although China is a tempting option, Snyder argues that only the United States is both credible and capable in this role. South Korea must ultimately balance the contradiction of desirable autonomy and necessary alliance. SCOTT A. SNYDER

Taking Back Philosophy

A Multicultural Manifesto BRYAN W. VAN NORDEN Foreword by Jay L. Garfield

A PR OVOCAT IV E CAS E FO R A T R U LY G LO BA L CON C EP T ION OF P H I LOS O PH Y

Are colleges and universities failing their students by refusing to teach the philosophical traditions of China, India, and other non-Western cultures? Even though we live in an increasingly multicultural world, most philosophy departments stubbornly insist that only Western philosophy is real philosophy and denigrate everything outside the European canon. In Taking Back Philosophy, Bryan W. Van Norden lambastes academic philosophy for its insularity and issues a ringing call to make our educational institutions live up to their cosmopolitan ideals. In a cheeky and controversial style, Van Norden proposes an inclusive approach. He showcases several examples of how Western and Asian thinkers can be brought into dialogue, demonstrating that philosophy only becomes deeper as it becomes increasingly diverse. Taking Back Philosophy is at once a manifesto for multicultural education, an accessible introduction to Confucian and Buddhist philosophy, a defense of liberal arts education, and a call to return to the search for the good life that defined philosophy for Confucius, Socrates, and the Buddha. Building on a New York Times opinion piece that suggested renaming the typical philosophy department a “Department of European and American Philosophy,” this book challenges us to reconsider what constitutes the love of wisdom.

The Resurrection of the Body in Western Christianity, 200–1336 Expanded edition

CAROLINE WALKER BYNUM

A classic of medieval studies, The Resurrection of the Body in Western Christianity, 200–1336 traces ideas of death and resurrection in early and medieval Christianity. Caroline Walker Bynum explores problems of the body and identity in devotional and theological literature. This expanded edition includes her 1995 article “Why All the Fuss About the Body? A Medievalist’s Perspective” and a new introduction, which discusses the book’s context and why the Middle Ages matter for how we think about the body and life after death today. “There are few historians of whom one can say that they have actually shifted some of the landscape of the writing of history in their own generation, but

The Shadow of the Object

Psychoanalysis of the Unthought Known

Anniversary edition With a new preface

CHRISTOPHER BOLLAS

During our formative years, we are continually impressed by the object world. Most of this experience will never be consciously thought, but it resides within us as assumed knowledge. In this influential work, Christopher Bollas terms this “the unthought known,” offering radical new visions of the scope of psychoanalysis that expand our understanding of the creativity of the unconscious mind. First published in 1987, The Shadow of the Object remains a classic of the psychoanalytic literature written by a truly original thinker. This anniversary edition includes a new preface by Bollas. “A mind-expanding experience.” —American Journal of Psychiatry

From Da Ponte to the Casa Italiana BARBARA FAEDDA

The Casa Italiana—a neo-Renaissance palazzo located on Amsterdam Avenue near 117th Street— has been the most important expression of the Italian presence on Columbia University’s campus since its construction in 1927. As a site of interdisciplinary scholarship and promotion of Italian culture, the Casa Italiana has made a substantial contribution to the academic study of Italy in America and the understanding of Italian cultural identity abroad. Celebrating the Casa’s ninetieth anniversary, From Da Ponte to the Casa Italiana documents and recounts the history of the individuals, both Italian and American, who contributed to the formation of Columbia University’s rich tradition of Italian studies.

Barbara Faedda’s succinct yet detailed historical survey begins at the dawn of Italian studies at Columbia with Lorenzo Da Ponte, Mozart’s witty librettist who became the charismatic founder of the New York Metropolitan Opera and Columbia’s first professor of Italian. Covering figures such as the former revolutionary Eleuterio Felice Foresti, Faedda elucidates the complex and often controversial dimensions of the Casa’s history, highlighting protagonists such as Giuseppe Prezzolini and Nicholas M. Butler as well as Italian American students and community members. The Casa played a significant role in U.S.-Italian relations from its foundation, and at one point it came under fire, accused of ties to Mussolini and pro-Fascist leanings. Synthesizing archival documents with the work of historians, From Da Ponte to the Casa Italiana tells the compelling stories of the Casa and several of its leading figures, whose influence on the university can still be felt today. BARBARA FAEDDA

is the associate director of the Italian Academy

for Advanced Studies at Columbia University, where she is also adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Italian. Among other works, she is the editor of Present and Future Memory: Holocaust Studies at the Italian Academy (2008–2016) (2016).

Building the New American Economy

Smart, Fair, and Sustainable JEFFREY D. SACHS Foreword by Bernie Sanders

“Jeffrey Sachs remains one of the most thought-provoking economists in the world today because he dares to challenge presidents of both parties and the orthodoxies that bind them to disastrous policies. His critiques are fierce and his solutions fearless in the face of political and academic groupthink. That makes Professor Sachs a rarity in public life and this book an absolute necessity.” —Joe Scarborough

In this passionate and powerful book—part manifesto, part plan of action—the renowned economist Jeffrey D. Sachs offers a practical strategy to move America, seemingly more divided than ever, toward a new consensus: sustainable development. Sustainable development is a holistic approach that emphasizes economic, social, and environmental objectives in shaping policy. In focusing too much on economic growth, the United States has neglected rising economic inequality and dire environmental threats. Now, even growth is imperiled. Sachs explores issues that have captivated the nation and dominated political debate, including infrastructure, trade deals, energy policy, the proper size and role of government, the national debt, and income inequality. Not only does he provide illuminating and accessible explanations of the forces at work in each case, but he also presents specific policy solutions. His argument rises above the pessimism born of political paralysis, economic stagnation, and partisanship to devise a brighter way forward, achievable both individually and collectively. In Building the New American Economy, Sachs shows how the United States can find a path to renewed economic progress that is fair and environmentally sustainable.

This book presents the essential steps of Munger’s investing strategy, condensed here for the first time from interviews, speeches, writings, and shareholder letters and paired with commentary from fund managers, value investors, and business-case historians. Munger’s approach is straightforward enough that ordinary investors can apply it to their portfolios. This book is not simply about investing. It is about cultivating mental models for your whole life, but especially for your investments.

Many of Wall Street’s contemporary trends can be traced back to the work of fourteen critical figures who wrote and occasionally broke the rules of American finance. Edward Morris details Wall Street’s transformation from a clubby enclave of financiers to a symbol of vast economic power. Anyone interested in the modern institution of American finance will devour this history of some of its most important players.

MATTHEW SMITH

MARKUS HEILIG

HONOR AB L E M EN T I O N — H I STO RY O F ST M CAT EGORY, P R OSE AWA R DS

For most of the twentieth century, food allergies were considered a fad or junk science. While many physicians and clinicians argued that certain foods could cause a range of chronic problems, others believed that allergies were psychosomatic. This book traces the trajectory of this debate and its effect on public-health policy and food production, illuminating society’s troubled relationship with disease, nature, and the creation of medical knowledge. “A fascinating overview of the contested history and meanings of food allergy over the past century.” —Los Angeles Review of Books

“Fundamentally fascinating.” —New York Times MATTHEW SMITH

“An informative and compassionate chronicle.” —Kirkus Reviews

Clarifying the cutting-edge science of addiction for both practitioners and general readers, The Thirteenth Step pairs stories of real patients with explanations of key concepts relating to their illness. Heilig paints a vivid, readable portrait of drug seeking, escalation, and other aspects of addiction and suggests science-based treatments that promise to improve troubling relapse rates. The Thirteenth Step offers compassionate, valuable answers to anyone who hopes for a better handle on a confounding disease. “Recommended for anyone who suffers from addiction or who knows someone who does.” —Library Journal MARKUS HEILIG

moving and practical. A must read.”

—Choice

—Booklist

Lévi-Strauss measures the short distance between “complex” and “primitive” societies and finds a shared madness in the ways we enact myth, ritual, and custom. Yet he also locates a pure and persistent ethics that connects the center of Western civilization to far-flung societies and forces a reckoning with outmoded ideas of morality and reason. CLAUDE LÉVI-STRAUSS

was born in Brussels in 1908.

He held the chair of social anthropology at the Collège de France from 1959 to 1982 and was elected a member of the Académie Française in 1973. He died in Paris on October 30, 2009.

Drawing on his experience defending journalists on the front lines, Joel Simon calls for a global freedom-of-expression agenda. He proposes ten key priorities, including combating the murder of journalists, ending censorship, and developing a global free-expression charter to challenge the criminal and corrupt forces that seek to manipulate the world’s news. “Simon makes a persuasive case that the global trend is toward less, not greater, freedom of the press.” —The New Yorker

Sexual Violence from The Hunger Games to Campus Rape

Exhaustion

A History

ANNA KATHARINA SCHAFFNER

KELLY OLIVER “Schaffner’s imaginative and ambitious work offers 201 6 CH O ICE OUTSTA N D I N G ACA D E M I C T I T L E

rich materials with which to think about exhaustion.”

Kelly Oliver examines popular culture’s fixation on representing young women as predators and prey and the implication that violence—especially sexual violence—is an inevitable, perhaps even celebrated, part of a woman’s maturity. To underscore the threat of these depictions, Oliver locates their manifestation of violent sex in the growing prevalence of campus rape, the valorization of woman’s lack of consent, and the new urgency to implement affirmative consent policies.

—Times Literary Supplement

“A must read for scholars and students.” —Choice KELLY OLIVER

Beginning in classical antiquity, this book demonstrates how exhaustion has always been with us and helps us evaluate more critically the narratives we tell ourselves about the phenomenon. Pathologized, demonized, sexualized, and even weaponized, exhaustion unites the mind with the body and society in such a way that we attach larger questions of agency, willpower, and well-being to its symptoms. Exhaustion finds in our struggle to overcome weariness a more significant effort to master ourselves. “A fascinating study of the ways in which doctors

Translated by Beth Archer Brombert

—Art Monthly

CH OI CE O UTSTA N DI N G ACA DEMI C TI TLE, 2015

The conceptual artist Liam Gillick writes a holistic genealogy of contemporary art, arguing that we need to appreciate its engagement with history, even when it seems apathetic or blind to current events. Gillick takes a broad view of artistic creation from 1820 to today, underscoring the industry and intelligence of artists as they have responded to incremental developments in science, politics, and technology.

The acclaimed historian Massimo Montanari traces the development of medieval tastes—both culinary and cultural—from raw materials to market and captures their reflections in today’s food trends. Tying the ingredients of our diet to the growth of human civilization, he details how food transformed from a simple staple to a symbol of social and ideological standing.

The Purposes of Philosophy GIANNI VATTIMO Translated by Robert T. Valgenti “An engaging and refreshing read for any serious student of philosophy.”

A Critical Encounter on the Politics of Freedom, Equality, and Identity AXEL HONNETH AND JACQUES RANCIÈRE Edited by Katia Genel and Jean-Philippe Deranty “This book will be a point of reference.”

—Library Journal

Drawing on Nietzsche and Heidegger, Gianni Vattimo develops a philosophy to combat the newest enemy of freedom and democracy: complacency toward reality. It is no accident that the call to embrace reality has emerged at a time when the inequalities of liberal capitalism are at their most extreme. Truth is therefore never objective, and resistance to reality becomes our best hope for countering the ongoing indifference to our fate. GIANNI VATTIMO

A Biography

Introduction by Robin Feuer Miller

ANTOINE DE BAECQUE AND NOËL HERPE

“You may never look at a story the same way again after reading Robert Belknap’s incisively clear and

illuminating book.”

O N E O F PU BLI S H ER S WEEKLY’ S B EST SUMMER

—The Fictional 100

BO O KS, 2016

Literary narrative enchants us through its development of plot, but plot tells its own story about the making of narrative. Through rich readings of Shakespeare’s King Lear and Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment, Robert L. Belknap explores the spatial, chronological, and causal aspects of plot, revealing critical details about how and when a work came into being. Plots teach us novelistic rather than poetic justice. Operating according to their own logic, they provide us with a compelling way to see and order our world.

Éric Rohmer set the terms by which people watched, made, and thought about cinema for decades. This exhaustive biography uses personal archives and interviews to enrich our knowledge of Rohmer’s public achievements and voracious appetite for art, culture, and intellectual debate.

(1929–2014) was professor of Slavic

languages and a former dean of Columbia University.

—Theory & Event

—World Literature Today

—Modernism/Modernity

Amy Allen fractures critical theory from within by dispensing with its progressive reading of history while retaining its notion of progress as a political imperative. In reimagining a decolonized critical theory after the end of progress, she rescues it from oblivion and gives it a future.

Susan Stanford Friedman recasts modernity as a networked, circulating, global, and recurrent phenomenon. Rejecting the modernist concepts of marginality, othering, and major/minor, Friedman instead favors rupture, mobility, speed, networks, and divergence.

Nico Israel reveals spirals throughout the most significant literature and visual art of the twentieth century. Juxtaposing the work of writers and artists—W. B. Yeats and Vladimir Tatlin, James Joyce and Marcel Duchamp, and Samuel Beckett and Robert Smithson—he argues that spirals help decode modernity, history, and geopolitics.

Confronting the Climate Challenge presents a new framework for evaluating the costs and benefits of climate-policy options. Lawrence Goulder and Marc Hafstead analyze the cost-effectiveness of four different mechanisms to reduce carbon dioxide emissions: a revenue-neutral carbon tax, a cap-and-trade program, a clean-energy standard, and an increase in the federal gasoline tax. They demonstrate that these policies—if designed correctly—can achieve a reduction in carbon emissions at low cost while avoiding undesirable impacts on vulnerable U.S. households or industries.

SOCIOLOGY / SOCIAL POLICY

Sociology and Social Policy

Essays on Community, Economy, and Society HERBERT J. GANS “Written by a master sociologist in his

characteristically lucid, accessible prose, these deep and compelling ruminations offer challenges to thought and action on every page.” —Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University

This collection of recent essays by the influential sociologist Herbert J. Gans brings together the many themes of Gans’s wide-ranging career to make the case for a policy-oriented vision of sociology. Sociology and Social Policy presents a range of studies that explicate and help solve social problems by studying what people, institutions, and social structures do with, for, and against one another. These works from across Gans’s major areas of study—the city, poverty, ethnicity, employment and political economy, and the relationship between race and class—together make a powerful call to action for the field of sociology. “These essays remind us of the balance and the wonderful clarity and compassion that inform all of Gans’s work on urban and other social problems. And they remain acutely insightful and compelling at this perilous moment in American history.” —Frances Fox Piven, the Graduate Center, City University of New York HERBERT J. GANS

The Consecration of Elites in Djursholm MIKAEL HOLMQVIST “One of the very few extensive and penetrating ethnographic studies of an upper-class community.” —Trygve Gulbrandsen, Institute for Social Research (Norway)

Leader Communities is a study of Stockholm’s suburb Djursholm and similar places around the world: privileged communities where elites choose to live, socialize with other elites, and, most importantly, raise their children into future elites. The sociologist Mikael Holmqvist argues that such communities offer their residents a social environment that imbues them with a sense of importance. Based on a comprehensive five-year ethnographic study, this book provides unparalleled insight into the character of today’s upper-class environments and the moral, social, and political consequences of elites’ aspirations to lead societies.

Reassembling Motherhood brings together contributors from across the disciplines to examine the transformation of motherhood as an identity and a role. It examines issues such as artificial reproductive technologies, surrogacy, and the legal status of kinship, showing how complex chains of procreation and care have generated both greater liberty and new forms of constraint.

Abdill draws on four years of fieldwork in Bedford-Stuyvesant to dispel stereotypes of black men as “deadbeat dads.” She presents qualitative and quantitative evidence that confirms the increasing presence of black fathers in their communities, arguing that changing social norms about gender roles in black families have shifted behaviors. Abdill shows how supporting black men in their quest to be—and be seen as—family men is the key to securing not only their children’s well-being but also their own. AASHA M. ABDILL

LITERARY STUDIES

Thick and Dazzling Darkness Religious Poetry in a Secular Age PETER O'LEARY “Thick and Dazzling Darkness undertakes the daunting task of exploring spirituality (qua poetry) in a way that connects such otherwise dissimilar poetics as the self-consciously looking backward of Robinson Jeffers, the peculiarly American modernism of Robert Duncan, and the (at)tendent postmodernism of Fanny Howe and Nathaniel Mackey. O’Leary creates a conceptual fabric through which we can ‘read’ this diverse group of poets— some well-served in scholarly circles, others rapidly falling off the American poetry radar. Given our cultural predicament as Americans, this work could not be more timely.” —G. C. Waldrep, Bucknell University

In Thick and Dazzling Darkness, Peter O’Leary offers a new reading of modern and contemporary poets’ treatment of religion and the nature of the divine in a secular age. The book seeks to come to terms with an often obscured spiritual impulse that drives the production and imagination of American poetry. He argues that an anxiety of misunderstanding exists in the study and writing of poetry between secular and religious impulses and that the religious nature of poets’ works is too often marginalized. Examining the works of a specific poet in each chapter, O’Leary argues for the value and meaning of religious poetry against the grain of a secular society. PETER O’LEARY

Critics, Coteries, and Pre-Raphaelite Celebrity WENDY GRAHAM

Founded by a band of young iconoclasts, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood stunned Victorian England with its revaluation of culture and lifestyle. In Critics, Coteries, and Pre-Raphaelite Celebrity, Wendy Graham traces the critical discourses that greeted the Pre-Raphaelites’ debut, shaped their contemporary reception, and continued to inform responses to them well after their heyday. She explains the mechanics of fame and the politics of scandal contributing to the rise of aestheticism, providing a new interpretation of the place of aesthetic counterculture in Victorian England. Graham documents the symbiotic relationship between periodical writers and the artists and poets they helped make famous, demonstrating that the origin myth of bohemian artistic transcendence was connected with the rise of a professional class of journalists. She shows that the Pre-Raphaelites innovated many of the phenomena now associated with Oscar Wilde, arguing that they were foundational for him in forging an artistic and personal identity with a full-blown publicity apparatus. Wilde had models. This book is about them. WENDY GRAHAM

GLORIA FISK

When Orhan Pamuk won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2006, he was honored for using his craft as a novelist to bridge a troubling gap between the Judeo-Christian West and the Islamic East. Gloria Fisk contests this pervasive way of reading Pamuk to look skeptically at the ways Western literary cultures expand their reach around the world. Taking the Turkish novelist as a case study in that expansion, Fisk reads his post-9/11 novels in the context of their international reception to weigh the costs and benefits of valuing literature as a source of cross-cultural understanding. The result is a case study in the uneven processes of translation, circulation, and judgment that carry a writer across the eastern edge of Europe to his readers all over the globe. GLORIA FISK

fundamentally important than the everyday, now utterly embedded in the digital.​The Digital Banal empower​s​us not just to see ourselves as we now are but to become active participants in everyday digital life.” —Lori Emerson, University of Colorado, Boulder

Zara Dinnen analyzes a range of prominent contemporary novels, films, and artworks to contend that we live in the condition of the “digital banal,” not noticing the affective novelty of our relationship to digital media. Writers and artists, Dinnen argues, offer ways of resisting the more troubling aspects of the effects of new technologies, as well as timely methods for seeing the digital banal as a politics of suppression. Bridging the gap between literary studies and media studies, The Digital Banal recovers the shrouded disturbances that can help us recognize and antagonize our media environment. ZARA DINNEN

Philosophies of Happiness

A Comparative Introduction to the Flourishing Life DIANA LOBEL “An impressive comparative study of conceptions of happiness found in East Asian, South Asian, and Western traditions of thought that will be read with interest by a wide range of scholars in religious studies, philosophy, and psychology.”

Why Only Art Can Save Us

Aesthetics and the Absence of Emergency SANTIAGO ZABALA “Zabala’s extraordinary book strikes at the very heart of our spiritual predicament. From austerity politics to security measures, everything is legitimized with the axiom that we live in a state of emergency. The first task of the critique of ideology today is thus to dispel this myth of emergency—something that Zabala does brilliantly, combining theoretical stringency with immense readability.” —Slavoj Žižek, author of Less than Nothing

In this provocative book, Santiago Zabala declares that in an age where the greatest emergency is the absence of emergency, only contemporary art’s capacity to alter reality can save us. He advances a new aesthetics that draws on Martin Heidegger’s distinction between works of art that rescue us from emergency and those that are rescuers into emergency. The former are conservers of the status quo; the latter are disruptive events. Zabala shows how art’s ability to create new realities is fundamental to the politics of radical democracy today.

Philosophies of Happiness provides a rich spectrum of arguments for a theory of happiness as flourishing, offering a global, cross-cultural, and interdisciplinary perspective on how to create a vital, fulfilling, and significant life. Diana Lobel brings together perspectives from a broad range of philosophical traditions—East and West, ancient and contemporary—to show that while thick descriptions of happiness differ widely, certain themes resonate across texts from different places and times, suggesting core features of a happy life. Happiness is the healthy and flourishing condition of the whole human being, and we experience the most complete happiness when we realize our potential through creative engagement. “I know of no other work that engages so many traditions comparatively; this work stands to make a significant contribution to our understanding of happiness across different religious and philosophical traditions.” —Erin M.

Responses to Anti-Semitism

ANDREW J. MITCHELL AND PETER TRAWNY, EDITORS “An impressive collection that genuinely enriches the conversation on Heidegger’s politics and philosophy.”

—Max Pensky, Binghamton University

Jürgen Habermas is among the most influential philosophers of our time. His diagnosis of contemporary society and concepts such as the public sphere, communicative rationality, and cosmopolitanism have influenced virtually all academic disciplines, spurred political debates, and shaped intellectual life in Germany and beyond for more than fifty years. In The Habermas Handbook, leading scholars elucidate his thought, providing essential insight into his key concepts, the breadth of his work, and his influence across public life. HAUKE BRUNKHORST

The publication of Martin Heidegger’s Black Notebooks has sparked international controversy. While Heidegger’s engagement with National Socialism was well known, the notebooks contain not just anti-Semitic remarks but anti-Semitism deeply embedded in the language of his thought.

Kuhn’s Legacy

Epistemology, Metaphilosophy, and Pragmatism BOJANA MLADENOVIĆ “This may well amount to the most successful reconstruction of Kuhn’s philosophy of science yet undertaken. Bojana Mladenović’s interpretive account is a significant intellectual service to scholarship in the history, sociology, and philosophy of science.” —Rupert Read, University of East Anglia

Thomas Kuhn’s The Structure of Scientific Revolutions is one of the most important books of the twentieth century, with its influence and key terms reaching far beyond the philosophy of science. However, Kuhn’s philosophy is still often misunderstood and underappreciated. In Kuhn’s Legacy, Bojana Mladenović offers a novel analysis of Kuhn’s central philosophical project, focusing on his post-Structure writings, to demonstrate the vitality of Kuhn’s philosophical project and its importance for the study of the philosophy and history of science today. BOJANA MLADENOVIĆ

Neither Ghost nor Machine

The Emergence and Nature of Selves JEREMY SHERMAN Foreword by Terrence Deacon

How can we explain the nature and origin of selves and aims without resorting to supernatural forces or explaining them away as nothing but cause-and-effect mechanisms? In Neither Ghost nor Machine, Jeremy Sherman distills emergent-dynamics theory for a general audience. Developed by the neuroscientist Terrence Deacon, the theory provides a testable hypothesis for how mattering arose from matter, function from physics, and means-to-ends behavior from cause-and-effect dynamics. It offers a physics of purpose, demonstrating that there is a strictly physical explanation for the emergence and nature of selves and aims, one that shows our existence in an otherwise inanimate universe is not absurd.

writes about biophilosophy, psychology,

and politics. He teaches college courses across the social sciences and writes for Psychology Today and Alternet. He has studied and collaborated with Terrence Deacon for twenty years. TERRENCE DEACON

Excessive Subjectivity

Kant, Hegel, Lacan, and the Foundations of Ethics DOMINIK FINKELDE “The predominant notion of subjectivity today is the Habermasian project of the mutual recognition of free responsible agents. What disappears in this project is the antagonistic core of subjectivity, a traumatic disturbance inscribed into the very notion of subject from Kant to Hegel. With reference to Lacan, Finkelde forcefully brings back this obliterated dimension: the true meaning of ‘excessive

How are we to conceive of acts that suddenly expose the injustice of the prevailing order? Dominik Finkelde rereads the tradition of German idealism and finds in it the potential for transformative acts. Finkelde’s discussion of the meaning and structure of the ethical act meticulously engages thinkers typically treated as opposed—Kant, Hegel, and Lacan—to develop the concept of excessive subjectivity, which is characterized by nonconformist acts that reshape the contours of ethical life. Through these thinkers, Finkelde develops a radical ethics for contemporary times. DOMINIK FINKELDE

Stefani Engelstein explores the pivotal and unacknowledged significance of sibling structures in the modern organization of knowledge and identity across the European long nineteenth century. Sibling Action argues that this relational paradigm came to structure the modern subject, life sciences, human sciences, and collective identities such as race, religion, and gender. Integrating close readings across the disciplines with panoramic intellectual history and arresting literary interpretations, Sibling Action presents a compelling new understanding of systems of knowledge in a genealogical age and provides the foundation for less confrontational formulations of belonging.

For close to sixty years, the United States has maintained alliances with Japan and South Korea that have included a nuclear umbrella, guaranteeing their security as part of a strategy of extended deterrence. In this book, Terence Roehrig provides a detailed and comprehensive look at the nuclear umbrella in northeast Asia in the broader context of deterrence theory and U.S. strategy. He examines the role of the nuclear umbrella in Japanese and South Korean defense planning and security calculations, including the likelihood that either will develop its own nuclear weapons. Roehrig argues that the nuclear umbrella is most important as a political signal demonstrating commitment to the defense of allies and as a tool to prevent further nuclear proliferation in the region.

The Politics of Secularism

Religion, Diversity, and Institutional Change in France and Turkey MURAT AKAN

“Akan’s book makes significant contributions to the study of religion and secularism, especially (but not only) in France and Turkey. It also offers deep archival engagement. . . . The Politics of Secularism is comparative history at its best.” —Cihan Tuğal, University of California at Berkeley

Murat Akan reframes the question of secularism, exploring its presence both outside and inside Europe and offering a rich empirical account of how it moves across borders and through time, through detailed studies of France and Turkey. Akan analyzes prominent debates in both countries on topics such as the visibility of the headscarf and other religious symbols, religion courses in the public school curriculum, and state salaries for clerics and imams. Disputing the prevalent idea that diversity is a new challenge to secularism and focusing on comparison as part of the politics of secularism, this book makes a major contribution to understanding secular politics and its limits.

Political Science and International Relations at Boğaziçi University. He was a guest researcher at the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Germany in 2012 and 2013.

When the State Winks

The Performance of Jewish Conversion in Israel MICHAL KRAVEL-TOVI

“Easily the best recent ethnography of state bureaucratic practice in Israel. Kravel-Tovi’s work is grounded in significant ethnographic fieldwork and moves beyond accounts that treat ‘the State’ as a monolithic and inimical entity. Real people— rabbis, converts and state workers—emerge from these pages, not stick figures of the sociological imagination.” —Don Seeman, Emory University

When the State Winks carefully traces the performance of state-endorsed Orthodox conversion in Israel. Michal Kravel-Tovi follows conversion candidates—mostly secular young women from a former Soviet background—and state conversion agents. She complicates the popular perception that conversion is a “wink-wink” relationship in which both sides agree to treat the converts’ pretenses of faith as real, developing new ways to think about the complex connection between conversion and the nation-state.

Would you like to learn to pray like a medieval Christian? In Mary and the Art of Prayer, Rachel Fulton Brown traces the history of the medieval practice of praising Mary through the complex of prayers known as the Hours of the Virgin. More than just a work of historical scholarship, the book asks readers to immerse themselves in the experience of believing in and praying to Mary, suggesting what it would have been like for medieval Christians to encounter Mary in prayer.

A case study in the textual architecture of the venerable legal and ethical tradition at the center of the Islamic experience, Sharī‘a Scripts focuses on highland Yemen in the early twentieth century, when the Zaydī school of jurisprudence, rooted there for a millennium, still held sway. Brinkley Messick uses the richly varied writings of the Yemeni past to offer a uniquely comprehensive view of the sharī‘a as a localized and lived phenomenon, reading a wide spectrum of sources in search of a new historicalanthropological perspective on Islamic textual relations. Sharī‘a Scripts also ventures a major methodological contribution by confronting anthropology’s longstanding reliance upon the observational and the colloquial, seeking to develop tools for the anthropologist as reader. is professor of anthropology and

In God and Man in Tehran, Hossein Kamaly explores the historical processes that have made and unmade contending visions of God in Iran’s capital throughout the past two hundred years. Kamaly examines how ideas of God have been mobilized, contested, and transformed, emphasizing how notions of the divine have given shape to and in turn have been shaped by divergent conceptualizations of nature, reason, law, morality, and authority. Kamaly considers continuity and change in religiosity under the Qajar and Pahlavi dynasties; why a modernizing nation took a sudden turn toward state religiosity; and how the Islamic Republic deploys visions of God against foreign enemies and domestic critics. Beyond the majority Shia Muslim population, the book includes minority and suppressed voices, discussing the views of Sunni Muslims, Armenian and Assyrian Christians, Jews, Baha’is, and Zoroastrians and investigating issues of gender and class. With a focus on the diversity of ideas of the divine, God and Man in Tehran offers a novel perspective on the intellectual movements that have shaped Iranian modernity. HOSSEIN KAMALY

Since the 1979 revolution, scholars and policy makers have tended to see Iranian political actors as religiously driven to overturn the international order. In Religious Statecraft, Mohammad Ayatollahi Tabaar argues that such views get backward the link between religious ideology and political order. He explains how competing political actors strategically construct and deploy Shia-inspired ideologies to gain credibility and raise mass support. This provocative book does not examine political Islam but rather the politics of Islam—demonstrating that religious narratives can change rapidly, frequently, and dramatically, in accordance with elites’ threat perceptions. Religious Statecraft revises our understanding of the revolution, the U.S. embassy hostage crisis, the Iran-Iraq War, the Green Movement, nuclear politics, and U.S.-Iran relations.

SIMON PARTNER

“[The book’s] scholarship is first rate and the contribution original and timely. The authors offer genuinely illuminating and original readings of many of the widely discussed parts of the Zhuangzi.” —Barry Allen, McMaster University

Genuine Pretending presents an innovative reading of Daoist philosophy that highlights the critical and therapeutic functions of satire and humor. Hans-Georg Moeller and Paul J. D’Ambrosio show how the Zhuangzi distances itself from the pursuit of authenticity and subverts the dominant Confucianism of its time through satirical allegories and ironical reflections. The Zhuangzi expounds the Daoist art of “genuine pretending”: the paradoxical skill of not only surviving but thriving by enacting social roles without being tricked into submitting to them or letting them define one’s identity. “A highly insightful new reading of the Zhuangzi that is exceptionally sensitive to both philosophical and textual subtleties.” —Brook Ziporyn, University of Chicago Divinity School HANS-GEORG MOELLER

In April 1859, at age fifty, Shinohara Chūemon left his old life behind. Chūemon, a well-off farmer in his home village, departed for the new port city of Yokohama, where he remained for the next fourteen years. There, as a merchant trading with foreigners in the aftermath of Japan’s 1853 “opening” to the West, he witnessed the collapse of the Tokugawa shogunate, the civil war that followed, and the Meiji Restoration’s reforms. The Merchant’s Tale looks through Chūemon’s eyes at the upheavals of this period, using the story of an ordinary merchant farmer and its Yokohama setting as a vantage point onto sweeping social transformation and its unwitting agents. In a narrative history rich in colorful detail, Simon Partner focuses on Japan’s common people to investigate the relationship between individual motivation and social change. Partner’s microhistory of a vibrant meeting place humanizes the story of Japan’s revolutionary 1860s and their profound consequences for Japanese society and culture. SIMON PARTNER

Quelling the Demons’ Revolt

Selections from a Late Ming Collection

A Novel from Ming China

ZHANG YINGYU

ATTRIBUTED TO LUO GUANZHONG

Translated by Christopher Rea and Bruce Rusk

Translated by Patrick Hanan

The Book of Swindles, a seventeenth-century story collection, offers a panoramic guide to the art of deception. Ostensibly a manual for self-protection, it presents a tableau of criminal ingenuity in late-Ming China, featuring an array of smooth operators, crooks, and charlatans, from unscrupulous merchants and corrupt officials to covetous monks and venal eunuchs. Each story comes with commentary by the author, Zhang Yingyu, who expounds a moral lesson while also speaking as a connoisseur of the swindle. This volume contains annotated translations of just over half of the eighty-odd tales in Zhang’s landmark work. ZHANG YINGYU

Introduction by Ellen B. Widmer and David Der-wei Wang

In this Ming-era novel, historical narrative, raucous humor, and the supernatural are interwoven to tell the tale of an unsuccessful attempt to overthrow the Song dynasty. Though Quelling the Demons’ Revolt centers on the events of the rebellion led by Wang Ze in 1047–48, facts are distorted and intermingled with slapstick humor and wild fictions. The author points to human vanities and fixations as well as social injustice, warning of the vulnerability of any pursuit of order in a world plagued by demonic forces as well as mundane corruption. This translation offers English-speaking readers a spirited example of social critique and caustic humor. LUO GUANZHONG

Premodern Korean Literary Prose

An Anthology

MICHAEL J. PETTID, GREGORY N. EVON, AND CHAN PARK, EDITORS

This anthology presents new translations of Korean prose works from the tenth to the nineteenth century. It offers insight into past Korean societies by highlighting genres that have largely not been translated, such as diaries, short fictional biographies, erotic tales, oral narratives, and novellas, all of which illustrate the depth and variety of premodern Korean writings. The selections are intended to show what literate people of the premodern period enjoyed reading and demonstrate the cultural diversity of the creation of literature, including a range of writings by women and nonelites such as commoners. The volume also includes critical essays and short introductions to contextualize the materials and explain the ideological backdrop behind the creation of the works. MICHAEL J. PETTID

—Jeremy Varon, the New School

On March 28, 1979, the worst nuclear reactor accident in U.S. history occurred at the Three Mile Island plant. Natasha Zaretsky uses the accident to provide a fresh interpretation of the political realignment of the 1970s. Drawing on the testimony of the men and women who lived in the shadow of the reactor, Radiation Nation discusses how the region’s citizens, especially its mothers, grew convinced that they had sustained radiological injuries that threatened their reproductive futures. Their politics was shaped by what Zaretsky calls “biotic nationalism,” which imagined the nation as a living being and portrayed sickened Americans as evidence of betrayal. The first cultural history of the accident, Radiation Nation emphasizes how local women crafted a homegrown ecological politics and reveals the surprising dimensions of post-Vietnam conservatism.

What does it feel like to be featured, quoted, or just named in a news story? Based on dozens of interviews with news subjects, Becoming the News studies how ordinary people make sense of their experience as media subjects. Ruth Palmer charts the arc of the experience of “making” the news, from the events that brought an ordinary person to journalists’ attention through their interactions with journalists and reactions to the news coverage and its aftermath, with important implications for how we think about the production and consumption of news at a time when Americans distrust the news media more than ever.

Cinema and the Re-creation of the World Second edition

S. BRENT PLATE Praise for the first edition: “[An] excellent little volume.” —Journal of Religion

Religion and cinema share a capacity for world making, ritualizing, mythologizing, and creating sacred time and space. Religion and Film introduces readers to both religious studies and film studies by focusing on the formal similarities between cinema and religious practices and on the methods they each use to re-create the world. By analyzing the ways films are constructed, we can shed new light on the ways religious myths and rituals are constructed and vice versa. This thoroughly expanded and revised edition includes new chapters that offer theories and methods for thinking about cinema in a manner that more fully connects film studies with religious studies. S. BRENT PLATE

is a writer, editor, and visiting associate

professor of religious studies at Hamilton College. His books include Representing Religion in World Cinema: Filmmaking, Mythmaking, Culture Making (2003), Blasphemy: Art That Offends (2006), and A History of Religion in 5½ Objects: Bringing the Spiritual to Its Senses (2014). Plate is also cofounder and managing editor of the journal Material Religion: The Journal of Objects, Art, and Belief.

The Essay Film After Fact and Fiction NORA M. ALTER

Nora M. Alter argues that the essay film is a hybrid genre that fuses three major categories of film: feature, art, and documentary. Much like the written essay, its literary predecessor, the essay film draws on a variety of forms and approaches, fundamentally altering the shape of cinema. Alter traces the essay film’s origins to early silent cinema, charting the genre’s evolution with the advent of sound, its emergence as a recognized category of film in the postwar period, and the ways the genre developed in the later twentieth century. In addition to exploring the broader history of the essay film, Alter discusses the work of artists including Robert Smithson, Martha Rosler, Isaac Julien, John Akomfrah, Harun Farocki, and Hito Steyerl.

Ingmar Bergman’s Face to Face MICHAEL TAPPER

The 1976 premiere of Face to Face came at the height of Ingmar Bergman’s career. Yet today Face to Face is a largely overlooked and dismissed work. This book tells the story of its rise and fall. It presents a new portrait of Bergman as a political artist exploring a new medium with huge public impact: television. Inspired by Henrik Ibsen, feminism, and alternative psychotherapy, he made a series of portraits of the modern bourgeois family focusing on the plight of women; Face to Face followed in the tracks of The Lie (1970) and Scenes from a Marriage (1973), investigating the heart of repressive family structures to eventually glimpse a way out. This volume culminates in an extensive study of the twoyear process from the first outlines of the screenplay to the reception and aftermath of Face to Face. It thus offers a unique insight into Bergman’s ideas and artistry during a turbulent time in cinema history. MICHAEL TAPPER

is an affiliated researcher in film studies

at Lund University, Sweden, and a film critic at the daily papers Sydsvenska Dagbladet and Helsingborgs Dagblad. His previous books include Swedish Cops: From Sjöwall and

A Search for Belonging

The Mexican Cinema of Luis Buñuel MARC RIPLEY

Despite the fact that the twenty films Luis Buñuel made in Mexico between 1946 and 1965 represent the most prolific stage of his career as a filmmaker, these have remained relatively neglected. This book focuses on nine of the films made in Mexico in order to show that a concerted focus on space can unlock new meaning in this rich body of work. Focusing on films such as Los olvidados, Nazarín, and El ángel exterminador alongside La mort en ce jardin, The Young One, and Simón del desierto, it avoids the tropes most often associated with Buñuel—surrealism, Catholicism, the derision of the bourgeoisie—and the approach most often invoked in analysis of these themes: psychoanalysis. Instead, it argues that, ultimately, these films depict an overriding sense of placelessness, overtly or subliminally enacting a search for belonging that forces the viewer to question what it means to be in place.

The Hollywood B-Film

Cinema in the Digital Age

Cinema on a Shoestring

Revised edition

KYLE EDWARDS

NICHOLAS ROMBES

The Hollywood B-Film offers a concise overview of the so-called ‘B-film’ in the United States between the late 1920s—when the emergence of the double-feature format led to the creation of motion pictures intended for the bottom half of a dual bill—and the contemporary period, when an increasing number of distribution channels and exhibition outlets have shifted the B-film’s traditional definition but not its cultural importance or pervasiveness. Each chapter of this volume offers a clear and concise examination of a distinct period in the history of this vast but relatively unknown area of film history. Case studies explore Warner Bros.’ B-film unit in the 1930s, Poverty Row stalwart Monogram Pictures in the 1940s and 1950s, independent upstart King Bros. in the 1960s and 1970s, and Quentin Tarantino’s and Robert Rodriguez’s homage to B-film excess in Grindhouse (2007).

Have digital technologies transformed cinema into a new art, or do they simply replicate and mimic analogue, film-based cinema? This updated edition of Cinema in the Digital Age takes a fresh look at the historical and contemporary state of digital cinema. It pays special attention to the ways in which nostalgia for the look and feel of analogue disrupts the aesthetics of the digital image, as well as how recent films such as The Social Network (2010) and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)—both shot digitally—have disguised and erased their digital foundations. The book also explores new possibilities for writing about and theorizing film, such as randomization.

Sculpting Stories

Already regarded as one of the most important contemporary British and Polish directors, Pawel Pawlikowski’s 2013 receipt of the Academy Award for the Best Foreign Film for his Holocaust drama Ida secured his place in world cinema. Drawing on a series of original interviews, this full account of Pawlikowski’s extraordinary life charts his career from his departure from Poland in the 1970s to his international success. Highlighting Pawlikowski’s collaborative working practices, personal approach to filmmaking, and different places of residence, the volume analyzes his preoccupation with questions of identity mapped against historical events and social change. Examining the varied production histories of Pawlikowski’s films, this volume also offers a larger reflection on transnational developments in European film. JOANNA RYDZEWSKA

Serenity

Danger: Diabolik

Joss Whedon’s Serenity (2005) is at once a symbol of failure and a triumphant success of fan activism. The cult television icon’s feature directorial debut functions as an extension of his canceled Fox series Firefly. Mourning their loss, fans of the show fought for more, making Serenity not just a cult film but a monument to cultdom. A minor box-office success upon first release, Serenity continues to be a sci-fi favorite. This book examines the relationship between the film and its peculiar cult following, largely established before a cult object even existed, and situates the film in relation to the series and its other transmedia continuations to plumb the status of different media texts and their platforms. Additionally, it explores those cult features of Serenity—a playful engagement with genre, with high and low culture, with gender roles—that predisposed it to such a fierce following, one that would follow Whedon into future series and blockbuster projects such as The Avengers.

Danger: Diabolik (1968) was adapted from a comic, a phenomenon in Italy, featuring a masked master criminal—part Fantômas, part James Bond—and his elegant companion, Eva Kant. The film partially reinvents the character as a countercultural prankster and places him in a futuristic underground hideout and Eva in a series of unforgettable outfits. A commercial disappointment on its original release, Danger: Diabolik’s reputation has grown along with that of its director, Mario Bava, the quintessential cult auteur, while the pop-art glamour of its costumes and sets have caught the imagination of such people as Roman Coppola and the Beastie Boys. This study examines its status as a comic-book movie, including its relation both to the original fumetto and to its sisterfilm, Barbarella. It traces its production and cult afterlife as both a pop-art classic and campy “bad film” featured in the final episode of Mystery Science Theatre 3000.

SOCIAL WORK

Cultivating Professional Resilience in Direct Practice

A Guide for Human Service Professionals JASON M. NEWELL

Origins of Darwin’s Evolution

Solving the Species Puzzle Through Time and Place J. DAVID ARCHIBALD

“Newell emphasizes the importance of professional self-care as it relates to providing ethical and quality services to others who are vulnerable and needing help. Clearly, if as helping professionals we do not take the first breath of oxygen, how is it possible to help others breathe?” —Carolyn Szafran, Washburn University

Overwhelming empirical evidence indicates that new social workers going into child welfare or other trauma-related care discover emotional challenges. However, the revised CSWE Educational Policy and Accreditation Standards (EPAS) does not mandate the inclusion of content related to self-care in social work curricula. In a textbook that bridges the gap between theoretical and pragmatic approaches, Jason M. Newell provides a solution by conceptualizing self-care as the key to professional resilience. By examining four key constructs—stress, empathy, resilience, and self-care—from different theoretical dimensions, Newell offers an extensive, competency-based model. He describes a framework grounded in the ecological-systems perspective conceptualizing self-care as a broader set of practice behaviors pertaining to the whole person. This comprehensive approach to self-care can help practitioners remain resilient and committed to social work in the face of trauma. JASON M. NEWELL

In On the Origin of Species (1859), Charles Darwin presented his evidence for evolution and natural selection as its mechanism, drawing upon his earliest data gathered during his voyage on the HMS Beagle. By the end of the voyage, he had come to the realization that species evolved in different regions throughout the world, but he did not express this revelation explicitly in his notebooks until shortly after his return. Over the years, Darwin collected more evidence supporting evolution, but his early work remained paramount. Many discussions of Darwin’s landmark book give scant attention to this wealth of evidence, and today we still do not fully appreciate its significance in Darwin’s thinking. In Origins of Darwin’s Evolution, J. David Archibald explores this lapse. Carefully retracing Darwin’s gathering of evidence and the evolution of his thinking, Origins of Darwin’s Evolution achieves a new understanding of how Darwin crafted his transformative theory. J.

Transgender Sex Work and Society LARRY NUTTBROCK, EDITOR

This is the only book that systematically examines transgender sex work in the United States and globally. Bringing together perspectives from a rich range of disciplines and experiences, it is an invaluable resource on issues related to commercial sex in the transgender community and in the lives of trans sex workers, including mental-health, substance use, relationship dynamics, encounters with the criminal justice system, and opportunities and challenges in the realm of public health.

The volume covers trans sex workers’ interactions with health, social service, and mental health agencies, featuring more than forty contributors from across the globe. Synthesizing introductions by the editor help organize and put into context a vast and scattered research and empirical literature. The book is essential for researchers, health practitioners, and policy analysts in the areas of sex-work research, HIV/AIDS, and LGBTQ/gender studies. “This book explores the role of sex work in the lives

The election of Donald J. Trump as the president of the United States of America has provoked an unprecedented intensity of reflection in virtually all academic disciplines. The professions of architecture and planning, faced with the phenomenon of a self-proclaimed “builder in chief,” have found themselves facing a series of fundamental questions, both old and new. How should we think, teach, and practice under a developer presidency? What sort of walls will we and won’t we choose to build? What are our commitments of critical thought, and what obligations should we turn our energies toward?

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

The essays gathered in And Now explore the nature of architecture’s many long-standing complicities. Architecture coordinates colossal expenditures (of material, of energy); it scripts forms of labor (in its construction, in its operation, and in the programs it houses); and it is both a repository and generator of capital. Architecture participates, centrally, in defining modes of life, whether for the privileged or the dispossessed—designing and building the boundaries between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” This fundamental reality of architectural practice need not inspire either nihilism or defensiveness but should rather be understood, quite simply, as the terrain we navigate. Naming these complicities and the injustices they perpetuate is a first step toward addressing them. THE AVERY REVIEW

Reflections on Culture and Politics 1894–1959 KENNETH FRAMPTON

Wright’s Writings traces the discursive work of Frank Lloyd Wright through a set of essays by Kenneth Frampton. Originally written as a series of introductions to the five-volume collection of Wright’s writing published in 1992, the essays are gathered here as a critical survey of the architect’s written and spoken work—a body of text that testifies to Wright’s staggering prolificacy, pleasure in argument, diversity of interests, and desire to engage with timely political debates. Alongside these five essays, Wright’s Writings provides a visual record of Wright’s literary output, demonstrating the range of media he employed in the act of making architecture. Read together, it presents a history of the architect through the essays, books, letters, lectures, and speeches he wrote as well as the material and social cultures he navigated. KENNETH FRAMPTON

Architecture Is All Over investigates architecture’s simultaneous diminishment and ubiquity in the early twenty-first century. It features original texts and design proposals from emerging and established scholars and practitioners. Together these pieces probe architecture’s relationship to liminal zones and immaterial systems, reframing instability and mutability as enduring qualities that form architecture’s core—a perspectival shift with new possibilities for agency and resistance. Case studies that propose new strategies are placed alongside provocative historical examples to tease out the implications of architecture’s indeterminacy. Taken together, the pieces in this volume reinterpret architecture’s “all-over-ness” as an untapped disciplinary property rather than a temporary or terminal condition.

The Paradox of Risk

Leaving the Monetary Policy Comfort Zone ÁNGEL UBIDE

Previously Announced, Now Available.

In the decades before the global financial crisis of 2007, economic policy makers kept to the primary goal of containing inflation and public deficits. Today, after years of sluggish economic recovery, the time has come for a new strategy of monetary stimulus to spur economic growth and encourage risk taking by investors. In this book, Ángel Ubide surveys the actions taken by central banks in the wake of the 2007 crisis and draws lessons from the unpredictable interaction among markets, countries, and financial institutions. Ubide concludes that fear of another crippling crisis has caused central banks to become dangerously risk-averse and overly complacent about dampened economic growth. He advances the provocative thesis that monetary policy makers, accustomed to a “boring” role in managing economies, must now leave their “comfort zones” and embrace risk as a necessary requirement for growth.

Vivan Sundaram: History Project

The Dancing Poet

Sibaji Bandyopadhyay

RIMLI BHATTACHARYA

The first site-specific installation staged in India was Vivan Sundaram’s History Project, located in the Victoria Memorial and Museum in Kolkata, marking fifty years of Indian independence. The choice of setting was a challenge: to “occupy” an imperial edifice; to reflect India’s struggle for independence through an anachronistic mirror; and to engage with postcolonial contradictions through recursive narration. This book critically investigates Sundaram’s aesthetic, formal choices, and method in essays by cultural theorists, art and architectural historians. It carries detailed, annotated illustrations of the installation.

This book casts Rabindranath Tagore as the “Dancing Poet”—in whose work dance signifies how a pan-Indian diversity could merge, albeit selectively, with that of the world. The book outlines the contradictions and possibilities in such aspirations, central to the new cultural texts that Tagore sought to produce in lyric, songs, dance, image, or narrative. Focusing on the first four decades of the twentieth century, the book evokes an international backdrop of movements, revolutionary and reactionary, whose thrust is on putting “the people” center stage. It takes as a comparative frame cultural experiments in Russia, Japan, and Germany alongside movements in colonial India to weave together education, art, and entertainment, often with a founding guru at the center.

EDITORS

Evidence from Village Studies in India V. K. RAMACHANDRAN,

This collection of papers explores the idea that the concept of similarity could offer a new, alternative approach in cultural studies, as compared to the dominant paradigm of difference. Though the postcolonial critique of identity has emphasized alterity and hybridity, the category of similarity offers an alternative for examining our complex cultural world. This book seeks to introduce and explore interpretations of similarity, with essays from literary and cultural studies, philosophy, political science, sociology, ethnology, and history. The first part of the book deals with conceptual attempts to establish the relevance of similarity, and the second part is devoted to testing different areas and models of application. ANIL BHATTI

This book examines the socioeconomic characteristics of small producers in different agro-ecological regions of India in the broader context of the capitalist development of Indian agriculture. Drawing on surveys collected in seventeen villages, it examines issues such as the productivity and economic viability of small farms, sources of household income, patterns of input use, and the extent of labor small farmers perform on their own holdings. While not romanticizing the role of small farmers, the book brings out the need for strong state support to enable them to meet the challenges they face. MADHURA SWAMINATHAN

Essays for Binay Bhushan Chaudhuri SHUBHRA CHAKRABARTI AND UTSA PATNAIK, EDITORS

There is no area in the agrarian history of eastern India that Binay Bhushan Chaudhuri has not traversed. His extensive opus surveys the agrarian economy of eastern India and all its protagonists. The essays in this volume are on diverse themes. A number of essays are on different aspects of the agrarian world, the major focus of B.B. Chaudhuri’s academic research: his concept of the peasantry; the growth of commercial agriculture in eastern India; the process of depeasantization by which small and marginal peasants gradually lost their land and turned into sharecroppers or hired labor; and the more or less forcible induction of a large number of tribes and forest dwellers into settled agriculture, resulting in spates of rebellion. Other essays discuss aspects of social and cultural history; and there are three essays on Rabindranath Tagore. SHUBHRA CHAKRABARTI

“An absorbing and well-sourced study of KMT propaganda efforts to convince the United States to side with China rather than Japan in WWII. The study shows how the KMT, facing a massive power asymmetry compared to its Japanese opponent, managed to effectively use the soft power of foreign propaganda.”

News under Fire: China’s Propaganda against Japan in the English-Language Press, 1928–1941 is the first comprehensive study of China’s efforts to establish an effective international propaganda system during the Sino-Japanese crisis. It explores how the weak Nationalist government managed to use its limited resources to compete with Japan in the international press. By retrieving the long-neglected history of English-language papers published in the treaty ports, Shuge Wei reveals a multilayered and often chaotic English-language media environment in China and demonstrates its vital importance in defending China’s sovereignty. Chinese bilingual elites played an important role in linking the party-led propaganda system with the treaty-port press. Yet the development of propaganda institutions did not foster the realization of individual ideals. As the Sino-Japanese crisis deepened, the war machine absorbed treaty-port journalists into the militarized propaganda system and dashed their hopes of maintaining a liberal information order.

The Making and Remaking of China’s “Red Classics” Politics, Aesthetics, and Mass Culture

EDITED BY ROSEMARY ROBERTS AND LI LI

The Making and Remaking of China’s “Red Classics” is the first full-length work to bring together research on the “red classics” across the entire Maoist period through to the reform era. It covers a representative range of genres including novels, short stories, films, TV series, picture books, animation, and traditionalstyle paintings. Collectively the chapters offer a panoramic view of the production and reception of the original “red classics” and the adaptations and remakes of such works after the Cultural Revolution.

The contributors present fascinating stories of how a work came to be regarded as or failed to become a “red classic.” There has never been a single answer to the question of what counts as a “red classic”; artists had to negotiate the changing political circumstances and adopt the “correct” artistic technique to bring out the “authentic” image of the people while appealing to the taste of the mass audience at the same time. A critical examination of these works reveals their sociopolitical and ideological import, aesthetic significance, and function as mass-cultural phenomena at particular historical moments. This volume marks a step forward in the growing field of the study of Maoist cultural products.

The Australian Pursuit of Japanese War Criminals, 1943–1957 From Foe to Friend

DEAN ASZKIELOWICZ

Previous scholarship on trials of war criminals focused on the legal proceedings with only tacit acknowledgment of the political and social context. Dean Aszkielowicz argues in The Australian Pursuit of Japanese War Criminals, 1943–1957: From Foe to Friend that the trials of Class B and Class C Japanese war criminals in Australia were not only an attempt to punish Japan for its militaristic ventures but also a move to exert influence over the future course of Japanese society, politics, and foreign policy, as well as to cement Australia’s position in the Pacific region as a major power.

“Australia’s unique contributions to defeating imperial Japan are legendary, but perhaps less so is the crucial role Australia played in postwar Allied war-crimes investigations and trials of the Japanese. Aszkielowicz sheds new light on this underappreciated story and assesses its implications to Australian domestic politics and international relations in the Asia-Pacific region.” —Yuma Totani, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, author of The Tokyo War Crimes Trial: The Pursuit of Justice in the Wake of World War II

During the Allied occupation of Japan, Australia energetically tried Japanese Class B and Class C war criminals. However, as the Cold War intensified, Japan was increasingly seen by the United States and its allies as a potential ally against communism and was no longer considered a threat to Pacific security. In the 1950s, concerns about the guilt of individual Japanese soldiers made way for pragmatism and political gain when the sentences of war criminals became a political bargaining chip. “Aszkielowicz demonstrates that the Australian trials, while pursuing a form of justice, never veered too far away from political and diplomatic concerns. This book charts new research to identify and historicize the evolution and impact of how the Australian nation adjudicated imperial Japanese war crimes.” —Barak Kushner, University of Cambridge; author of Men to Devils, Devils to Men: Japanese War Crimes and Chinese Justice DEAN ASZKIELOWICZ

Encounters across Cultures in Hong Kong, 1841–1984 EDITED BY ELIZABETH SINN AND CHRISTOPHER MUNN

Reduced to a Symbolical Scale

The Evacuation of British Women and Children from Hong Kong to Australia in 1940 TONY BANHAM

Given its geographical location, its status as a free port, and its role as a center of migration, Hong Kong was an extraordinarily porous place. People of diverse cultures met and mingled here, often with unexpected results. The case studies in this book draw both on previously unused sources and on a rigorous rereading of familiar materials. They explore relationships between and within the Japanese, Eurasian, German, Portuguese, British, Chinese, and other communities in areas of activity that have often been overlooked. In their diverse experiences we see not just East meeting West, but also East meeting East, and South meeting North—in fact, a range of complex and dynamic processes that seem to render obsolete any simplistic conception of “East meets West.”

In July 1940, the wives and children of British families in Hong Kong, military and civilian, were compulsorily evacuated, following a plan created by the Hong Kong government in 1939. That plan focused exclusively on the process of evacuation itself, but issues concerning how the women and children should settle in the new country, communication with abandoned husbands, and reuniting families after the war were not considered. In practice, few would ever be addressed. When evacuation came, 3,500 people would simply be dumped in Australia.

Meeting Place: Encounters across Cultures in Hong Kong, 1841–1984 presents detailed empirical studies of day-to-day interactions between people of different cultures in a variety of settings. The broad conclusion— that there was sustained and multilevel contact between men and women of different cultures—will challenge and complicate traditional historical understandings of Hong Kong as a city either of rigid segregation or of pervasive integration.

Boys’ Love, Cosplay, and Androgynous Idols

Queer Fan Cultures in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan EDITED BY MAUD LAVIN, LING YANG, AND JING JAMIE ZHAO

Chinese-speaking popular cultures have never been so queer in this digital, globalist age. The title of this pioneering volume, Boys’ Love, Cosplay, and Androgynous Idols: Queer Fan Cultures in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan already gives an idea of the colorful, multifaceted realms the fans inhabit today. Contributors to this collection situate the proliferation of (often online) queer representations, productions, fantasies, and desires as a reaction against the norms in discourses surrounding nationstates, linguistics, geopolitics, genders, and sexualities. Moving beyond the easy polarities between general resistance and capitulation, Queer Fan Cultures explores the fans’ diverse strategies in negotiating with cultural strictures and media censorship. It further outlines the performance of subjectivity, identity, and agency that cyberspace offers to female fans. Presenting a wide array of concrete case studies of queer fandoms in Chinese-speaking contexts, the essays in this volume challenge long-established Western-centric and Japanese-focused fan scholarship by highlighting the significance and specificities of Sinophone queer fan cultures and practices in a globalized world. The geographic organization of the chapters illuminates cultural differences and the other competing forces shaping geocultural intersections among fandoms based in Mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

The main objective of this book is to familiarize the reader with a subset of the learning difficulties and common errors in ESL/EFL pronunciation and lexico-grammatical structures encountered by Chinese learners and users of English in Hong Kong and beyond. It also helps readers understand some of the ways in which the Chinese language has undergone structural change as a result of Europeanization. The book begins with a review of Cantonese-English contrastive phonology; which is followed by a detailed analysis of lexico-grammatical deviations found among Chinese ESL/EFL learners. It concludes with a brief history of the Europeanization of the Chinese language and a discussion on commonly encountered lingua-cultural problems encountered by Chinese users of English in intercultural communication settings.

Medicine is an ever-changing science. Since this book was first published in 2006, there have been major advances in many aspects of medicine. In this second edition, medical cases, diagnostic approaches, and treatment modalities have been brought up to date, in keeping with advances in medical science. Chapters on respiratory medicine have been thoroughly revised and strengthened to reflect the most current information in the field. New topics in medical case management, such as emerging controversies in medical ethics and issues of professional conduct are covered.

Since it was first published in 1994, Neurology in Practice has been widely used as a textbook by students, trainees, physicians, and allied health professionals. While there have been transformative advances in neuroscience in the past two decades, clinical practice remains central. In this fifth edition, the authors highlight proper clinical methodology and application of evidence-based knowledge for effective management. All chapters have been thoroughly updated and two new chapters, Disorders of Cerebrospinal Fluid Dynamics and Autoimmune Disorders of the Nervous System, have also been added.

Problem-Based Medical Case Management primarily provides a compact and essential aid for medical students preparing for their examinations in general medicine. Doctors will also find this book useful in their day-to-day practice and when preparing for case presentation. KATHRYN CHOON-BENG TAN

Classical Chinese Huanghuali Furniture from the Haven Collection CHU-PAK LAU

The University Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Hong Kong presents Classical Chinese Huanghuali Furniture from the Haven Collection and publishes this informative edition in conjunction with the exhibition. Chinese huanghuali furniture is world-famous and, for the longest time, has been collected in both East and West. The fine selection displayed here shows both domestic furniture and scholars’ items, such as brush pots and chests.

The elegant dark hardwood with natural shine is remarkable for the fact that Chinese furniture is typically made from solid timber, not an invisible subconstruction covered by a decorative veneer, as is so often the case in the West. The strength of each individual element of a piece of furniture and the consistent color matters as every detail is exposed and the precision of the joints and the size and position of the dowels are all visual elements of an often simple and graceful design.

This publication presents a selection of essays on Chinese and European furniture making, stylistic influences, and workshop practices during the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Single chapters focus on the similarities and differences in cabinetry in East and West, and the overwhelming impact of chinoiserie on the design of furniture in early-modern Europe. Individual masterpieces by cabinetmakers in France, England, and Germany further exemplify the wide-reaching effect of an “exotic” stylistic vocabulary and the development of an eighteenth-century fashion in the decorative arts. FLORIAN KNOTHE

conservator. Previously he worked as a furniture historian for the Huntington Collection and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the United States. As director of the University of Hong Kong Museum and Art Gallery, he is responsible for the development of cross-cultural and interdisciplinary art exhibitions and educational programming, and he also teaches courses in art history and the social sciences.

Contemporary Treasures by Jingdezhen’s National Masters from the Lamda Foundation Translated by Edward Zhou

This exhibition introduces Jingdezhen as a manufacturing site for artifacts, and it focuses on individual talents and the fame of a few master craftsmen, as well as their history and the uninterrupted production of unique high-quality porcelain objects of inherent beauty. The mastery and endurance of individual painters has left us an array of vessel shapes, compositions, and iconographic subject matter that is, at times, both historic and contemporary.

Travelling in Hong Kong 1907–1909 FROM THE DIARY OF DR. DEZSŐ BOZÓKY Translated by Elizabeth Szász, Krisztina Sarkady, and Adrian Hart

The University Museum and Art Gallery at the University of Hong Kong collaborates with the Ferenc Hopp Museum of Asiatic Arts in Budapest to present an exhibition and publication featuring early photographic images by Dr. Dezső Bozóky. Poised to learn more about Asia and to experience China firsthand, the naval doctor Bozóky (1871– 1957) traveled to the East during the first decade of the twentieth century, recorded his journey in a hitherto unpublished diary, and photographed and self-developed hundreds of images that today present rare visual resources of the former colonial city and its busy and world-famous Victoria Harbor. In an ever more developing Hong Kong, Bozóky’s beautiful black-and-white and hand-colored pictures present historic documents that allow us to retrace their master’s steps and offer insights into the bustling merchant town, culturally mixed society, and lush natural landscape that he encountered.

Eddie Lui’s Four Decades of Artistic Pursuit

Women in the Arts from China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan

EDDIE LUI

EDITED BY MICHELLE VOSPER

The University Museum and Art Gallery presents Art Totems Bridging East & West: Eddie Lui’s Four Decades of Artistic Pursuit, an exhibition of artworks documenting the artist’s long and distinguished career. A successful banker, Eddie Lui began as a part-time artist before changing his corporate career for a full-time engagement with his passion for art. The public display at UMAG as well as this accompanying book follow a strict chronology and honor the artistic contribution of one of the city’s most celebrated contemporary artists.

Creating Across Cultures is a collection of stories about visionary Asian women who have journeyed outside their comfort zones to expand their artistic horizons. It celebrates the achievements of sixteen women in the arts from China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan—a region of diverse cultures, languages, and histories. Creating in a range of literary, visual, and performing arts, these women must often defy cultural and social expectations in order to heed their artistic drive. Their personal histories open windows onto the larger, historical trajectory of Greater China over three generations while their art work delves into social realities and challenges of the day.

Over the past forty years, Lui has developed a new language of naturalistic and abstract motifs highlighting his deeply felt admiration for nature. As a draftsman, painter, and sculptor Lui is one of the founders of contemporary art in Hong Kong. His artworks—whether ink, gouache, Japanese handmade paper on canvas, or sculpted in clay—are reminiscent of poetry that connects humans with nature and appeals to our range of senses.

consultant who has lived in Asia for more than half her life. As director of the Hong Kong office of the Asian Cultural Council for twenty-five years, she worked closely with leading artists across the region.

A transformative decade that witnessed the U.S. film industry’s restructuring under the pressures of neoliberal globalization, the 1980s swept away the last remnants of Old and New Hollywood alike while preparing the ground for today’s High Concept wasteland—thus goes an all too familiar tale of decline. The texts assembled in this volume tell a different, altogether more fitful and complex story about Reagan era Hollywood, attuned to the struggles that went on behind and in front of the camera: interrupted careers, defiant last stands, paths not taken. The book places particular emphasis on modes of realism from within the mainstream of U.S. popular cinema that resisted the tide of the times. The lexicon format, allowing for many perspectives and constellations while imposing none, encourages the reader to make their own connections, drawing out parallel histories that restore a sense of possibility to the canonical course of film history. From forgotten masters to minor works of the greats, from the defining actors of the decade to its definitive genres, from resistant independents to the resistible rise of the multinational corporation: the Real Eighties await rediscovery.

Joseph Conrad and the Voicing of Textuality CLAUDE MAISONNAT

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Preface Part I. The Ubiquitous Linguistic Question Part II. Eastern Dispatches Part III. Oceano Vox Part IV. Through a Voice Darkly Part V. Speaking for Downtrodden Femininity Afterword. The Sea and the Voice of Melancholy Conclusion

Joseph Conrad and the Voicing of Textuality offers an original approach to Conrad’s work rooted in linguistics and psychoanalytic theory. Claude Maisonnat provides fresh insight into the poetics of textuality by introducing the concept of textual voice, as opposed to the traditional conceptions of authorial voice and narrative voice. Understood as the main vector of poeticity in a text, textual voice is an offshoot of the Lacanian object-voice trimmed to fit a literary context. It enables the reader to uncover deeply concealed motivations and perceive unsuspected connections to the biographical background of the texts. At the same time, it offers new ways of structuring close reading and opens vistas into the mysteries of creation. Maisonnat gives insightful readings of Conrad’s best-known and less widely read works while developing a theoretically rich framework to tackle the notions of style and voice in literature.

This book is volume 26 of the series Conrad: Eastern and Western Perspectives, edited by Wiesław Krajka.

How IT Affects the Borders of Countries and Organizations SOICHIRO TAKAGI

Information technology (IT) affects every aspect of modern society from daily communication to business models and politics. Developments in IT are especially important to business organizations. They not only alter the internal structure of departments and divisions but also affect the relationships among countries, regions, and entities in the market. In other words, information technology affects how people cooperate to produce value.

In Reweaving the Economy, Soichiro Takagi provides an integrated view in order to understand the impact of IT on changing organizational structures in an era of cloud computing and mass collaboration, which are swiftly changing national economies in terms of productivity and employment. The analyses are reinforced by microeconomic analysis on organizational structures based on transaction-cost economics, which provides the foundation for firms’ decisions on organizational structure. Additionally, Takagi considers the importance of national culture as a determinant of foreign direct investment in the service sector to offer insights into international production and sharing information services.

Liberature

From the Absurd to Revolt

A Book-Bound Genre

Dynamics in Albert Camus’s Thought

KATARZYNA BAZARNIK

PIOTR MRÓZ AND MACIEJ KAŁUŻA, EDITORS

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

“Liberature” is a term coined by the Polish poet Zenon Fajfer to refer to a kind of writing that fuses text with its material form into a conceptual whole in the space of the book. In this book, “the fruit of miscegenation between a scholar and a creative writer,” Katarzyna Bazarnik explains how liberature is indebted to modernist explorations of the materiality of writing. She flags affinities between liberature and related concepts: N. Katherine Hayles’s technotexts, Jessica Pressman’s bookishness, Lori Emerson’s reading-writing interfaces, and Alison Gibbons’s analyses of multimodal literature. Finally, reading liberature through contemporary genre theory, she proposes to see it as a multimodal, literary genre bound to the architecture of the material book. KATARZYNA BAZARNIK

is assistant professor at the

Institute of English Studies of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. She is the author of Joyce and Liberature (2011) and the editor or coeditor of several volumes. She has also coauthored liberatic books with Zenon Fajfer. Together they curate the Liberature Reading Room in Krakow and edit an

“In the vision of the world and man according to Albert Camus, we do not find any easy solutions, and each transgression remains burdened with suffering. It might seem that nothing can bear the absurd of the world, and yet man is able to search for freedom. An interesting inspiration for further studies.” —Izabela Trzcińska, AGH University of Science and Technology, Krakow

This book presents a selection of texts on two key issues in the thought of Albert Camus: absurdity and rebellion. It analyzes the sources of Camus’s concept of rebellion, the problems of the absurd, and his early thought. Contributors also compare Camus with Dostoyevsky, Kołakowski, and Iwaszkiewicz. PIOTR MRÓZ

The volume attempts to diagnose the communicative dimension of the public sphere in terms of its operation as a space of deliberation, with particular consideration for mechanisms of inclusion and exclusion of social actors, topics, and arguments. The individual chapters result from research dating from the 1980s through 2014. They demonstrate the dynamic of changes based on consistent tracking of the fields of nuclear and wind energy and shale gas. These types of energy were chosen deliberately instead of coal, the most obvious form in Poland, since they represent technologies that were seen as innovative. ALEKSANDRA WAGNER

The History of Economics

A Users Guide to the Modern Economy

A Course for Students and Teachers

STEVE COULTER

ROGER E. BACKHOUSE AND KEITH TRIBE

F O R S A L E O N LY I N N O R T H A N D SOUTH AMERICA

Most economics is a top-down analysis that simplifies and reduces the huge varieties among individuals to a predictable range of characteristics that lend themselves to systematic analysis. This book eschews this conventional perspective and instead explores the role played by the individual in the economy, in particular, how the individual experiences the economy. In so doing, the book is able to illuminate the economic landscape for the nontechnical reader in a much more engaging and accessible way than conventional textbooks. By placing the individual front and center, the book shows the role of government, markets, and welfare in shaping our lives, providing an overview of the workings of the economy that takes as its starting point the interface between the individual and the system. STEVE COULTER

is LSE Fellow in the Political Economy of

Europe at the London School of Economics. He is also an associate fellow of the Social Market Foundation think tank. He was previously a senior economics analyst for BBC News.

Roger E. Backhouse and Keith Tribe present an introduction to the history of economic thought based upon courses they have taught for many years. Contemporary understanding of economic principles sheds little light on the manner in which past thinkers thought, so the student is guided through the writings of economists such as Smith, Jevons, Marshall, Robbins, and Keynes. The emphasis is on the development of economic argument from the seventeenth century to the present, emphasizing a diversity that is sometimes suppressed in conventional textbooks. With many years of experience teaching economic thought, the authors have honed their presentation to the needs of those with no background in the subject, without sacrificing analysis or rigor.

is professor of history and

philosophy of economics at the University of Birmingham. KEITH TRIBE

The Market

Degrowth

The market is one of the most readily identifiable manifestations of the modern economy: the locus of supply and demand, the object of countless production and consumption decisions. As an abstract idea, it has spilled over from economic theory to inform the way we speak about our relationship to the economic system as a whole. However, what does it really mean to allow ourselves to submit to market forces? And does economic theory really provide insights into the market institutions that shape everyday life, or can it only talk about an abstract idea of the market that has no reallife counterpart? Matthew Watson tackles these questions and in so doing provides an important contribution to the deeper appreciation of the dominant economic language of our time that will challenge readers’ assumptions about why they think what they think about markets and the way they act in a variety of marketplaces.

The term “degrowth” has emerged within ecological and other heterodox schools of economics as a critique of the idea (and ideology) of economic growth. Instead, degrowth advocates a contraction of economies by reducing production and consumption, arguing that it is possible to do so without reducing prosperity or wellbeing. One might see in the degrowth community a resurgence of a radical theoretical and political variant of environmentalism, or “ecologism,” based on the key premise that there are, and that there must be, “limits to growth.” Degrowth is the interdisciplinary theory, or science, of ecologism and the aim of this book is to summarize its core elements in a brief, succinct, and simple form. It grounds degrowth squarely within the field of ecological economics and, in addition to outlining its key ideas, explores what it would take for an economy to transition to a position that enabled it to prosper without growth.

Reflections on the Future of the Left

DAVID COATES, EDITOR

F O R S A L E O N LY I N N O R T H A N D SOUTH AMERICA

What is the future for progressive politics in advanced capitalism? With its political fortunes so low, how might the Left move forward? These essays from leading left intellectuals—Dean Baker, Fred Block, David Coates, Hilary Wainwright, Colin Crouch, Wolfgang Streeck, and Leo Panitch—reflect on the scale and nature of the task that the Left now faces. The contributors, whose experiences stretch back to the headier days of 1968, consider what they should pass on to a younger generation. Some are optimistic, some pessimistic, but all offer searching insight into the task the Left now faces and what, especially if it was complicit in the neoliberal settlement, it has left to draw on to deal with its contemporary challenges. These essays represent a major statement on the future for center-left politics and a frank appraisal of the Left’s current capabilities to keep conservatism at bay and radical politics in the ascendancy.

The New Politics of Trade Lessons from TTIP

ALASDAIR R. YOUNG

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership is Europe’s most controversial trade agreement. Aimed at reducing regulatory barriers between the United States and the EU, it was expected to be fairly straightforward, but negotiations now look set to fail altogether. Yet the negotiation process, the terms of the potential agreement, and its sticking points provide valuable lessons for policy makers and academics. Alasdair Young offers a penetrating analysis of the complexities of the negotiations and explores why they have proved so difficult to conclude, what motivates the different parties, and their implications for politics and policy. Young throws light on the limits of the transatlantic cooperation and teases out the implications for the UK in post-Brexit trade negotiations and for other nations now facing a more protectionist stance from the United States.

Since most economic crises are unexpected, how do individual organizations plan for them? Carol M. Connell investigates how theorists have used the economic recessions that defined their time to inform strategies for institutional management and growth in times of crisis. She shows that the postwar period saw an ever-growing body of research and theory from economics, the behavioral and social sciences, finance and business management, devoted to avoiding or limiting the effects, at the organizational level, of such economic downturns. Those theorists who applied frameworks for verifying change, assessing risks, or applying game theory, she shows, had the most to offer organizations, but those who played a public-policy role also made a significant contribution to living with economic uncertainty.

Doreen Massey (1944–2016) was one of the most influential geographers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Her ideas on space, region, identity, ethics, and capital transformed the field while also attracting a wide audience in planning, political economy, cultural studies, gender studies, and beyond. These specially commissioned essays, many from some of Massey’s long-time interlocutors and collaborators, interrogate both the sources and the potential of Massey’s oeuvre. Looking forward, rather than merely backward, the collection also highlights the diverse ways in which Massey’s formulations and frameworks provide a basis for new interventions in contemporary debates.

How Unorthodox Policy-Making Facilitated China’s Rise SEBASTIAN HEILMANN

China stands as a major “Red Swan” challenge to the social sciences. The resilience of the Communist party-state, in combination with a rapidly expanding economy, represents a significant deviant case for the debate about models of development. China’s trajectory thus challenges conventional wisdom as well as conventional models of political change. This book focuses on the manner in which China’s governmental system can be developed, formulated, implemented, adjusted, and revised. Policy making is seen as an openended process with an uncertain outcome, driven by conflicting interests, recurrent interactions, and continuous feedback, rather than determined by history, regime type, or institutions. Key to this are the capacity to deal with existing and emerging challenges, correction mechanisms when conflicts arise, and adaptive capabilities in a changing economic or international context.

This book examines how Confucian traditions have shaped modernity in East Asia. Ambrose Y. C. King discusses how China and East Asia developed a model of modern civilization distinct from the Western model of modernization which involves not only a process of deconstructing the cultural tradition but also a process of reconstructing it. He shows how the experience of modernization diverges within different Chinese societies, namely Hong Kong, Mainland China, and Taiwan. By highlighting the impact of Confucianism, he argues that Confucianism contains the seeds of modernization and transformation and that in the right institutional settings these seeds influence the course of development. King focuses on how Confucian ideas and values underpinning the foundation of East Asian societies, including social civility, political governance, the role of the family, individual self-cultivation, and moral regulation, matter to the modern social and political transformations of Chinese societies today.

This edited volume seeks to highlight the development of play therapy in various countries and cities in Asia. The editors discuss how mostly Western play-therapy approaches are adapted for use in Asian countries. Having existed for years in the West, play therapy is still in its early stage of development in most Asian countries, including Mainland China, Japan, South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia. This is the first play-therapy book written by experts from specific Asian cultures for practitioners and students who are working in the mental-health field for Asian groups. Each chapter first describes play-therapy development in that particular culture and then uses a case study to illustrate how play therapy can be adapted to suit specific cultural beliefs and environments in order to connect parents with their children or to address clients’ needs.

International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong (IPNHK) is an award-winning biennial poetry festival established by the renowned contemporary Chinese poet Bei Dao. Since its debut in 2009, IPNHK has become the most influential series of international poetry events in sinophone areas, delivered internationally acclaimed poets’ thoughts and ideas about poetry to contemporary China, and stimulated Chinese poets’ reflection upon their own conditions of reading world poetry. Following the enormous success of previous editions, IPNHK’s 2017 event is scheduled to happen from 22–26 November in Hong Kong, with the theme “Ancient Enmity,” and invites more than twenty poets and lyricists from different parts of the world to share and read their works in the hope of encouraging exchange among poets and lyricists. Poets include Gabeba Baderoon (South Africa), Javier Bello (Chile), Chen Dongdong (China), Jérôme Game (France), Major Jackson (U.S.), George Szirtes (UK), Anja Utler (Germany), Haris Vlavianos (Greece), and others. The IPNHK anthology includes selections of the most internationally acclaimed contemporary poetry by the invited poets, accompanied by unique Chinese and English translations in bilingual or trilingual formats.

Racism and Resistance

How Genes Matter

Genetic Medicine as Subjectivisation Practices

FRANZISKA MEISTER

BERNHARD WIESER

Even a cursory look at U.S. society today reveals that protests against racial discrimination are by no means a thing of the past. What can we learn from past movements in order to understand the workings of racism and resistance? In this book, Franziska Meister revisits the Black Panther Party and offers a new perspective on the party as a whole and its struggle for racial social justice. She shows how the Panthers were engaged in exposing structural racism in the United States and depicts them as uniquely resourceful, imaginative, and subversive in the ways they challenged white supremacy while at the same time revolutionizing both the self-conception and the public image of black people. Meister thus highlights an often marginalized aspect of the Panthers: how they sought to reach a world beyond race—by going through race. Theirs, she argues, is a message well worth considering in an age of “color blindness.”

Understanding the significance of genetic factors for our lives requires an analysis that goes beyond biological aspects. It is especially necessary to take into account how human beings relate to others and to themselves. Who we are is a result of social action and the ways in which human beings constitute themselves as subjects. Seen from this perspective, genetic medicine is a social practice that shapes how we think about ourselves, how we conduct our behavior, and how we care for our children. This book scrutinizes practices by which individuals become knowledgeable about their genes and constitute them as responsible decision makers.

New York Hotel Experience

TORSTEN KATHKE

For more than two hundred years hotels have played a significant role in American history. The modern hotel is even an American invention. In five case studies of iconic New York hotels, this book presents the hotel experience of the white upper class, literati, young artists, African Americans, and Jewish Americans using a variety of texts, including autobiographies, movies, and novels. This unique approach offers a new way of reading New York and showing the impact of the hotel experience on society and culture.

The arrival of telegraphy and railroads changed power relations throughout the world in the nineteenth century. Torsten Kathke illustrates how these technologies led to distinct and rapid shifts from the 1850s to the 1920s in the Mesilla region of the American Southwest. A local Hispano elite was replaced first by a Hispano-Anglo one, and finally a nationally oriented Anglo elite as the region became bound ever closer to the federal government.

Power imbalances are at the core of human conflicts. They shape physical and symbolic struggles between groups or individuals. This volume highlights the role of power relations in the black experience. By applying key concepts of Pierre Bourdieu and Norbert Elias to African American literature and culture, the authors offer new readings of power asymmetries in the works of canonical and contemporary black writers, rap music, and political activism.

Friendship Patterns among Young Academics in Urban India

The Malaysian Transplant Venture

STEPHANIE STOCKER

JENNY SCHREIBER

Caste hierarchy is often seen as the overriding principle of Indian society. This book examines the educated middle class in the Tamil town of Madurai, where young graduates appear to subvert the boundaries inscribed by caste hierarchy. Stephanie Stocker explores how these friendships are maintained in wider social contexts, finding that the actors engage in supportive networks throughout career and marriage events. She proposes a dynamic character of friendship which preserves Indian values of hierarchy.

The discourse on transplantation and brain death is emblematic of conflicts over medical care, death, and dying. This work captures the often contradictory views on the Malaysian transplant venture and treatment of end-stage organ failure from the Malay and Chinese population, physicians, state officials, and Muslim, Buddhist, and Daoist clergy. It also addresses the extent to which biomedicine and medical technology in contemporary Malaysia actually benefits its people.

The monsters of the horror genre never remain dead—they invariably return in new and terrifying shapes for another installment. In this study, Christian Knöppler explores the phenomenon of horror-film remakes. He argues that even though these derivative films typically earn little praise from critics, their constant refiguration of monsters and horror scenarios serves to access and update otherwise obscure cultural fears. With an indepth examination of six sample sequences of films and remakes, this book aims to shed new light on a much maligned and often neglected type of film and promises fresh insights to scholars and aficionados alike.

Pinar Tuzcu explores rapper Lady Bitch Ray’s performance, particularly her use of the term “Kanackin.” She searches for the elusive relationship between pop feminism in Germany and histories of migration. Tuzcu works through the contradictory forms of positioning that occur in group discussions with Turkish/German university students about Lady Bitch Ray’s music videos by means of decolonial methodologies and situational analysis. From a transcultural angle, Tuzcu argues that these contradictory forms of positioning bear traces of emergent discourses that reach beyond Westerncentric descriptions of feminism in Germany.

Nicolas Wasser critically examines how sexual and racial identities are currently being articulated through capitalist brands and labor. On the basis of an ethnographic case study about a Brazilian fashion enterprise, he shows how young lesbian, gay, and black sales employees align themselves with the ambivalent promises put forward by diversity management. Their affective labor, the study argues, is at the center of new and globally unfolding regimes of the precarious. This is a rich sociological account from the Global South that shows how neoliberal logics of self-optimization both traverse and fuel the aspirations of the minoritized.

American Missionaries in the Ottoman Empire

Killing and Being Killed: Bodies in Battle

HAMI INAN GÜMÜŞ

JÖRG ROGGE, EDITOR

This book is a metaphor-based analysis of the texts produced by the missionaries of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions in the Ottoman Empire from 1820–1898. It explores the conceptual metaphor networks inherent to official missionary discourse. The explication of these networks uncovers how the missionaries defined and depicted themselves and what they encountered. A synthesis of literary studies, linguistics, cultural history, and religious studies, the work analyzes the missionary narrative in its historical context by applying literary, narratological, and linguistic tools.

What bodily experiences did fighters make through their lifetime and especially in violent conflicts? How were the bodies of fighters trained, nourished, and prepared for combat? How did they respond to wounds, torture, and the ubiquitous risk of death? The articles present examples of body techniques of fighters and their perception throughout the Middle Ages. The geographical scope ranges from the Anglo-Scottish borderlands to Central Europe through the Mediterranean world. This larger framework enables the reader to trace the similarities and differences of the cultural practice of “killing and being killed” in various contexts. Contributors include Iain MacInnes, Alastair J. Macdonald, Bogdan-Petru Maleon, and others.

After a long period of neglect, emotions have become an important topic in literary studies. This collection of essays stresses the complex link between aesthetic and nonaesthetic emotional components. It focuses on the practice of writing as well as on the impact of emotional patterns on receptive processes to develop a concept of aesthetic emotions as formative within both the writing and the reading processes. Essays ranging from the beginning of modern drama to digital formats discuss English, German, French, Russian, and American literature.

Daniel Defoe’s work displays a keen interest in stories of supernatural encounters. After considering how one might prove supernatural occurrences and whether one can trust eyewitness accounts, Defoe demonstrates that more is at stake. Like his contemporaries, Defoe wonders about the range of scientific insight and about the moral and epistemological ramifications of unchallenged trust and faith. His transformations of the supernatural probe the boundaries of knowledge and evidence and play with the limits of cognition, emphasizing the inseparability of mind and emotion.

Dealing with the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement in Canada ANNE-MARIE REYNAUD

The largest class-action suit in Canadian history, the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement had a great impact on the lives of aboriginal survivors. AnneMarie Reynaud considers the settlement’s aspirations alongside the local reality for the Mitchikanibikok Inik First Nations. Drawing on anthropological fieldwork, this book weaves survivor experiences together with current theory on emotions, memory, trauma, and transitional justice. ANNE-MARIE REYNAUD

CHRISTINA R. ERGLER

Christina Ergler explores why “play” resonates differently across localities and seasons. She shows that determinants of seasonal outdoor play transcend modifiable barriers such as traffic and unsuitable play spaces, as well as the inevitable issue of inclement weather. They are grounded in locally constituted beliefs about what is seasonally “appropriate” children’s activity. To foster a healthier and more sustainable life for children, outdoor play needs to become convenient all year round in all locations. CHRISTINA R. ERGLER

Michaela Koch contrasts life narratives and fiction that represent experiences of hermaphroditism and intersex with contemporary debates in medicine, psychology, and activism. She challenges both strictly essentialist and constructivist notions, seeing intersex and hermaphrodite experiences as historically contingent, fully embodied, and nevertheless discursive subject positions.

Prizing Debate

The Fourth Decade of the Booker Prize and the Contemporary Novel in the UK

On the Threshold of Knowing

Dancing Age(ing)

Lectures and Performances in Art and Academia

Rethinking Age(ing) in and through Improvisation Practice and Performance

LUCIA RAINER

SUSANNE MARTIN

In this in-depth analysis of artistic and academic lectures and performances, Lucia Rainer gives profound insight into how knowledge as a practice and a concept is associated with clarity rather than truth. Based on four case studies, including John Cage’s unpublished and unabridged audio recording of Lecture on Nothing, the study explores how the concept of lecture performances, which adheres to two frames that never entirely blend, provides a space to (re-)negotiate the artistic-academic relationship.

How can contemporary dance contribute to a critical discourse on age and aging? Built on the premise that age(ing) is something we practice and perform as individuals and as a society, Susanne Martin asks for and develops strategies that allow dance artists to do age(ing) differently. The study develops, discusses, and stages practices and performances of age(ing) that offer alternatives to stereotypical and normative age(ing) narratives, which are part of not only dance but also of everyday culture.

This book offers a study of the Man Booker Prize and its impact on a novel’s media attention. Anna Auguscik analyzes how the prize recognizes books triggering debates, in addition to how it becomes the object of debates. Based on case studies of novels by Aravind Adiga, Margaret Atwood, Sebastian Barry, Mark Haddon, DBC Pierre, and Zadie Smith, the book describes the Booker as a “problem-driven attentiongenerating mechanism.”

In Slavic studies, aging and old age have thus far been only marginal concerns. This volume brings together the scattered research that has been done up to now on aging as represented and narrated in Slavic literatures. The essays investigate Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Slovene, and Ukrainian representations of age and aging in various literary genres and epochs and analyze age as a powerful marker of difference.

Institutional care for seniors offers a cultural repository for fears and hopes about an aging population. The paradoxical nature of a space meant to be both hospital and home creates views of the nursing home as a dreaded fate.

Transformative Strategies and Inclusive Practices in Nagorno-Karabakh and Syria PHILIP GAMAGHELYAN Foreword by Susan Allen

Philip Gamaghelyan relies on participatory action research and collective autoethnography to expose patterns of exclusion and marginalization as well as the paradoxical reproduction of conflict-promoting frames in current conflict-resolution practice applied to the Nagorno-Karabakh and Syrian crises. He explores alternative and inclusive strategies with a transformative potential. International relations is only one possible lens, and often a deficient one, for defining, preventing, or resolving contemporary conflicts. Other conceptual frameworks can help to rethink our understanding of identity and conflicts and reconstruct them as performative and not static phenomena. PHILIP GAMAGHELYAN

This volume compares different regional perspectives on the national and democracybuilding aims of individual states. Why are we observing calls for national identity right now? What are the roots of this development? How can a Central European identity be shaped when national perspectives are prevalent? This collection brings together leading historians of Central Europe, external perspectives on historical developments in Central Europe, and practitioners of Central European cooperation from both academia and civil society and their reflection on their countries’ political cooperation after 1989.

Religion and Magic in Socialist and Post-Socialist Contexts II

Baltic, Eastern European, and Post-USSR Case Studies ALEXANDRA COTOFANA AND JAMES M. NYCE, EDITORS

Religion and magic play important roles in Baltic, Eastern European, and post-Soviet societies. This collection challenges the idea that magic is something that modernity and modernization will transcend. Instead, magic is a form of work that brings modernity into being and helps render it intelligible to those who find themselves engaged in its creation. This volume brings together historical, ethnographic, and area studies that look at the divergent roles of state, culture, society, tradition, and the individual in enactments of magic and religion.

A Chapter in the History of the Ukrainian Revolution IVAN MAISTRENKO Edited by Peter Dornan and Chris Ford Translated by George S. N. Luckyj “Ivan Maistrenko’s Borot’bism is more than just a historical document. The debates during and after the Ukrainian revolution of 1917 still have a contemporary relevance.” —Andrew Wilson, School of Slavonic and East European Studies, University College London

The Borotbisty, the heirs of the Ukrainian Party of Socialist-Revolutionaries, were an independent party seeking to achieve national liberation and social emancipation. Though widely known in their day, they were decimated under Stalin. Out of print for over half a century, this lost text by Ivan Maistrenko, the last survivor of the Borotbisty, provides a unique account of this party, part memoir and part history. IVAN MAISTRENKO

(1899–1984) was a member of the

Ukrainian socialist and communist movement. A survivor of the gulag, he lived as a refugee in Germany writing numerous works on Soviet politics, economics, history, and socialist theory.

According to realist premises, the United States has an interest in remaining the world’s only superpower. The pursuit of this grand strategy, however, required the United States to adapt its various strategies to individual states. This study shows that Washington managed its relations with European states through a set of mainly bilateral relations. Madeleine Albright once described the tools of foreign policy as including “everything from kind words to cruise missiles.” This book is a comparative case study of U.S. use of these tools in its approaches toward Poland, Ukraine, and Belarus after the end of the Cold War.

The pseudoscience of eugenics was nowhere more enthusiastically received than in Germany. Under Nazi rule, compulsory sterilization morphed into mass murder under the guise of “euthanasia” before escalating into a continent-wide policy of extermination. In this important work, Melvyn Conroy explores this complex and disturbing subject. MELVYN CONROY

EDITORS Foreword by Timothy Snyder

This volume retraces Carl Lutz’s wartime rescue efforts in Budapest through eyewitness testimonies. Lutz led an extensive rescue operation, issuing lifesaving letters of protection and placing Jews in safe houses. Based on interviews with Holocaust survivors, this volume shines a light on the extraordinary scale of Lutz’s efforts. AGNES HIRSCHI

This study of the historical novels by Vasily Yan (Vassily Grigoryevich Yanchevetsky, 1874–1954) demonstrates the role of ideology in a totalitarian society. Shlapentokh shows that ideology and cultural and intellectual life in totalitarian regimes are more complex than is often assumed. Intellectuals often engaged in stressful, but— in its literary outcome—captivating “cat-and-mouse” games with censors and the government. DMITRY SHLAPENTOKH

The result is a highly rewarding book full of new insights, superb close readings, and poignant meditations on a time of wounds yet open to a different future.” —Jean-Michel Rabaté, University of Pennsylvania

Beckett’s Late Stage reexamines the writer’s postwar prose and drama in the light of trauma theory. Drawing from psychoanalytic and poststructuralist traditions, Tranter explores how Beckett allows us to rethink the relation among language, meaning, and identity. RHYS TRANTER

This groundbreaking collection from scholars and artists on the legacy of Beckett in contemporary art provides readers with a unique view of this important writer for page, stage, and screen. The volume argues that Beckett is more than an influence on contemporary art—he is, in fact, a contemporary artist, working alongside artists across disciplines in the 1960s, 1970s, and beyond.

Combining phenomenological analysis with dance and performance analysis and affect theory, A Theatre of Affect: The Corporeal Turn in Samuel Beckett’s Drama takes stock of the various ways in which the body in Samuel Beckett’s drama participates in the affective ecology of performance. Beckett’s theater of affect is predicated on the infinitesimal stirrings of subliminal meaning making that continuously shape and create the world in experience.

Europeanisation and Renationalisation

Learning from Crises for Innovation and Development ULRIKE LIEBERT AND ANNE JENICHEN, EDITORS

FOR SALE IN NORTH AMERICA, SOUTH AMERICA, AND AUSTRALIA / NEW ZEALAND

The book explores how the European Union and its members have been renegotiating Europeanization and renationalization in response to the multiple crises they have faced in recent years. The authors highlight varying understandings of “crisis” in different national and supranational policy and institutional contexts. They show how in some cases these have challenged the legitimacy of European Union norms and institutions and even triggered disintegration while in other cases these crises have served as sources of inspiration for European social innovation and political development.

The Shining

Don’t Look Now

JESSICA GILDERSLEEVE

This book situates The Shining (1980) within the history of the horror genre and examines its rightful status as one of the greatest horror movies ever made. It explores how Stanley Kubrick’s filmmaking style, use of dark humor, and ambiguous approach to supernatural storytelling complement generic conventions, and it analyzes the choices made in adapting King’s book for the screen—stripping the novel’s backstory, rejecting its clear explanations of the Overlook Hotel’s hauntings, and emphasizing the strained relationships of the Torrance family. The fractured family unit and patriarchal terror of Kubrick’s film, alongside its allusions to issues of gender, race, and class, offer a critique of American society that chimed with the era’s political climate as well as its genre trends.

Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now (1973) has been called “a ghost story for adults.” It certainly stands apart from the more explicitly violent and bloodthirsty horror films of the 1970s. Yet this supernaturally inflected tale of a child’s accidental drowning and her parents’ simultaneous recoil from her death and desperate pursuit of her ghost is horrific at every turn. This book considers it as a particular kind of horror film dependent on the narrative of trauma—the horror of unknowing, of seeing too late, and the failures of paternal authority and responsibility. It positions Don’t Look Now in the context of midcentury literary anxiety narratives, arguing that it represents a crossover or a hinge between 1970s literature and film, in which the women’s ghost story turns the horror film into a cultural commentary on the failures of the modern family.

In the Mouth of Madness

The Fly

Overlooked upon its release in 1995, John Carpenter’s In the Mouth of Madness has since developed a healthy cult reputation. But more than a fan favorite, it stands today as one of his most thematically complex and stylistically audacious pieces of work. The story of an insurance investigator drawn into the supposedly fictional universe of a best-selling horror novelist, the film is an extension of many recurring themes found in Carpenter’s filmography (the end of the world, the loss of free will, a distrust of mass industry and global corporations, the cataclysmic resurgence of ancient evil), as well as an affectionate homage to the works of H. P. Lovecraft and a self-reflexive celebration of the horror genre. This book seeks to at last position this overlooked masterpiece as essential Carpenter.

It’s not often that a remake outshines its original but David Cronenberg’s “reimagining” of The Fly (1986) is one of those rare exceptions. Equal parts horror, science fiction, and romance, The Fly takes the premise of its 1958 original—a man unintentionally fusing with a housefly during an experiment in teleportation— and reinterprets the plot as a gradual cellular metamorphosis between these two organisms. This book teases out the intricate DNA of The Fly and how it represents the personalities of many authors, including a distinguished history of Man-as-God tales stretching back to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein (1818). Drawing from interviews with cast, crew, film commentators, and other filmmakers, Emma Westwood interlaces the “making of ” travails of The Fly with why it is one of the most important examples of master storytelling ever committed to screen.

An unapologetic mixture of camp and arthouse cinema, Herk Harvey’s Carnival of Souls (1962) has emerged as a cult sleeper film that still influences filmmakers today. Though its production values are B-movie status, it has gained notoriety and respect for its atmosphere of dread and surrealist imagery. The first book-length study of Carnival, this book explores how it mixes post-Psycho paranoia with supernatural imagery and riffs on the horror films of World War Two as well as Harvey’s own educational films.
