Dear Readers: Our spring list represents the effort we make at Columbia University Press to bring fresh perspective and invaluable expertise to the global issues that affect our lives. With books on environmental sustainability, the rise of religion, national security, ethical labor practices, corporate accountability, racial injustice, and the historical roots of society and culture, our list responds to and clarifies our political moment. This season’s most notable trend is the strengthening partnership between our publishing house and the scholars and resources of Columbia University, which has resulted in books that showcase the unique strengths of Columbia’s leading researchers. In Building the New American Economy (p. 1), the Columbia professor Jeffrey D. Sachs presents a visionary plan for sustainable growth. In The Activist Director (p. 6), Ira M. Millstein creates a new model of responsible corporate governance. And Natalie Robins’s biography of Diana Trilling, The Untold Journey (p. 2), is the first book to make extensive use of the Diana Trilling archives and Lionel Trilling’s journals at the Columbia Library. By More Than Providence (p. 15) is an expansive and instructive history of American strategy in the Asia Pacific, part of a new series on American–East Asian relations generously funded by a Columbia University graduate. Written by the grandson of the first African American scholar to earn a Ph.D. from Columbia, Down the Up Staircase (p. 19) shares a poignant story of American mobility complicated by race. It is the first work to receive support from a member of our new Publisher’s Circle, founded to ensure the publication of significant scholarship regardless of its cost. Our Kenneth J. Arrow lecture series continues with Paul Milgrom’s Discovering Prices (p. 38), which offers a more workable theory of auction design for today’s markets. These books are the rich result of the collaborations and cooperation we hope to increase in the coming years to guarantee that our best thinkers continue to contribute meaningfully to the world. Thank you for your support, Jennifer Crewe Associate Provost and Director


Building the New American Economy

Smart, Fair, and Sustainable JEFFREY D. SACHS Foreword by Bernie Sanders A S ET OF S OLUT IONS FO R E V E RYO N E WO R R I E D A BOUT THE F UT UR E OF T H E U N I T E D STAT E S .

With a nation seemingly more divided than ever, many worry that Americans risk losing ground on solving the complex, interrelated problems the country faces—including rising inequality, climate change, astronomical health-care costs, and economic stagnation. The renowned economist Jeffrey D. Sachs offers a practical approach to move America toward a new consensus: sustainable development. Sustainable development is a holistic approach that focuses on the economy, society, and the environment when 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.

In this passionate and powerful book—part manifesto, part plan of action—Sachs dwells on issues that have captivated the nation and 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 devises 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. JEFFREY D. SACHS

“Jeffrey D. Sachs offers a very different vision for America on a wide range of issues, including the federal budget, infrastructure, jobs, health care, climate change, and foreign policy. He explains where America can and should be by 2030 in terms of reducing poverty, addressing the scourge of suffocating student debt, expanding health care and lowering costs, protecting the environment, and many other issues. Now, more than ever, this is a message that needs to be heard.” —from the foreword by Bernie Sanders

The Untold Journey The Life of Diana Trilling NATALIE ROBINS T H E F I RST B I O GRA P HY TO FO REGRO UN D O N E O F T H E MOST VI VI D FI GURES A N D UN CO MP RO MI SI N G CU LT URA L C RI TI C S O F THE TWEN TI ETH C EN TURY.

Throughout her life, Diana Trilling (1905–1996) wrote about profound social changes with candor and wisdom. She published five books, including the best-selling Mrs. Harris: The Death of the Scarsdale Diet Doctor, written when she was in her late seventies. She was also one half of one of the most famous intellectual couples in the United States.

Trilling’s life with the Columbia University professor and literary critic Lionel Trilling was filled with secrets, struggles, and betrayals, and she endured what she called her “own private hell” as she fought to reconcile competing duties at home and at work. Trilling was a feminist, yet she insisted that women’s liberation created unnecessary friction with men, asserting that her career ambitions should be on equal footing with caring for her child and supporting her husband. She fearlessly expressed her views and fought publicly with Lillian Hellman, among other celebrated writers and intellectuals. Trilling was an anticommunist liberal, a position often misunderstood, especially by her literary and university friends. And, finally, she was among the “New Journalists” who transformed writing and reporting in the 1960s, making her nonfiction as imaginative in style and scope as a novel. The first biographer to mine Trilling’s extensive archives, Natalie Robins shares the history of an essential member of New York City culture at a time of dynamic change.

“The Untold Story possesses a novelistic vividness and immediacy. Robins makes Diana Trilling, in all her complexity, come alive on the page. A thoroughly absorbing book about one of the most famous American intellectuals of the second half of the twentieth century.”

From the outback of Australia to the Gobi Desert of Mongolia and the savanna of Madagascar, the award-winning science writer and dinosaur enthusiast John Pickrell embarks on a world tour of new finds, meeting the fossil hunters working at the frontier of discovery. He reveals the dwarf dinosaurs unearthed by an eccentric Transylvanian baron; an aquatic, crocodile-snouted carnivore bigger than T. Rex that once lurked in North African waterways; a Chinese dinosaur with wings like a bat; and a Patagonian sauropod so enormous it weighed more than two commercial jet airliners.

Other surprising discoveries hail from Alaska, Siberia, Canada, Burma, and South Africa. Why did dinosaurs grow so huge? How did they spread across the world? Did they all have feathers? What do sauropods have in common with 1950s vacuum cleaners? The stuff of adventure movies and scientific revolutions, Weird Dinosaurs examines the latest breakthroughs and new technologies radically transforming our understanding of the distant past. Pickrell opens a vivid portal to a brand new age of fossil discovery, in which fossil hunters are routinely redefining what we know and how we think about prehistory’s most iconic and fascinating creatures. © A N D R E W F I N L AY S O N

The Incorporeal

Ontology, Ethics, and the Limits of Materialism ELIZABETH GROSZ A N E W RESO LUTI O N O F THE MI N D- BO DY P RO B LEM T H AT RECO N C I LES MATERI A LI SM A N D I DEA LI SM.

“This is a bold, brilliant, and fascinating study of an alternative philosophical tradition. The treatments of Simondon and Ruyer are especially welcome, and a new and highly challenging conception of materialism is offered.” —Keith Ansell-Pearson, University of Warwick

“What philosophy needs is a move through the middle: an incorporeal materialism or a materialist idealism. This is the important and timely project that Grosz undertakes in this book, with the help of a diversity of judiciously chosen philosophical guides, from the Stoics to Simondon.”

Philosophy has inherited a powerful impulse to embrace either dualism or a reductive monism— either a radical separation of mind and body or the reduction of mind to body. From its origins in the writings of the Stoics, the first thoroughgoing materialists, there is an acknowledgment that no form of materialism can be completely self-inclusive—space, time, the void, and sense are the incorporeal conditions of all that is corporeal or material. In The Incorporeal, Elizabeth Grosz argues that the ideal is inherent in the material and the material in the ideal and, by tracing its development over time, she makes the case that this same idea reasserts itself in different intellectual contexts. Grosz shows not only that idealism and materialism are inextricably linked but that this “belonging together” of the entirety of ideality and the entirety of materiality is not mediated or created by human consciousness. Instead, it is an ontological condition for the development of human consciousness. Grosz draws from Spinoza’s material and ideal concept of substance, Nietzsche’s amor fati, Deleuze and Guattari’s plane of immanence, Simondon’s preindividual, and Raymond Ruyer’s self-survey or autoaffection to show that the world preexists the evolution of the human and that its material and incorporeal forces are the conditions for all forms of life, including the human. A masterwork by an eminent theoretician, The Incorporeal offers profound new insight into the mind-body problem. ELIZABETH GROSZ

There’s No Such Thing as a Sexual Relationship Two Lessons on Lacan

ALAIN BADIOU AND BARBARA CASSIN Translated by Susan Spitzer and Kenneth Reinhard Introduction by Kenneth Reinhard BA D IOU AND CASS IN E N G AG E W I T H L ACA N ’ S L’ETO UR D IT, EXP LOR I N G H OW LOV E S H E DS L I G H T ON TH E NAT UR E OF R E A L I T Y A N D W H AT CO U N TS AS TR UT H .

Published in 1973, L’Etourdit was one of the French philosopher Jacques Lacan’s darkest and most important works. The book posed questions that traversed the entire body of Lacan’s psychoanalytical explorations, including his famous idea that “there is no such thing as a sexual relationship,” which seeks to undermine our certainties about intimacy and reality.

In There’s No Such Thing as a Sexual Relationship, Alain Badiou and Barbara Cassin take possession of Lacan’s short text, thinking “with” Lacan about his propositions and what kinds of questions they raise in relation to knowledge. Cassin considers the relationship of the real to language through a Sophist lens, while the Platonist Badiou unpacks philosophical claims about truth. Each of their contributions echoes back to one another, offering new ways of thinking about Lacan, his seminal ideas, and his role in advancing philosophical thought. ALAIN BADIOU

The Activist Director

Lessons from the Boardroom and the Future of the Corporation IRA M. MILLSTEIN H OW AC TI VE BOA RDS EN SURE THE LI FE O F A CO MPA N Y.

Some of the worst corporate meltdowns over the past sixty years can be traced to passive directors who favored operational shortcuts over quality growth strategies. Thinking primarily about placating institutional investors, selective stockholders, proxy advisors, and corporate management, these inattentive and deferential board members have relied on short-term share price increases to sustain their companies. Driven by a desire for prosperity, not posterity, these actions can doom any company.

“In this powerful and articulate book, Millstein drives a stake into director passivity and creates a new model for the activist director. It is a grand and important vision.” —John C. Bogle, founder and former CEO, Vanguard Group

“For more than half a century, Millstein has been a leading authority on corporate governance. His new book is sure to serve as an essential guide to directors in today’s transforming environment.” —Joseph Perella, cofounder and chairman, Perella Weinberg Partners

In The Activist Director, the attorney Ira M. Millstein looks back at fifty years of counseling companies, nonprofits, and governments to actively govern their corporations and constituencies. From the threat of bankruptcy and the ConEd blackout of 1970s New York City to the meltdown of Drexel Burnham Lambert in the late 1980s to the turnaround of General Motors in the mid-1990s, Millstein takes readers into the boardrooms of several of the greatest catastrophes and success stories of America’s best-known corporations. He calls for a new breed of activist directors to reject short-term outlooks, plan a future based on growth and innovation, and take responsibility for corporate organization, strategy, and efficiency. What questions should we ask of potential board members, and how do we know they’ll be active? Millstein offers pragmatic suggestions for recruiting activist directors to the boardroom to secure the future of the corporation. IRA M. MILLSTEIN

Investors are tempted daily with misinformation. They make lucky bets that breed false confidence, and their high-stakes gambles can take an emotional toll. How can anyone stay focused in such a volatile profession? In Big Money Thinks Small, veteran fund manager Joel Tillinghast urges investors to act cautiously and follow five primary steps to successful investing: (1) Know yourself (2) Make decisions based on your own knowledge (3) Select trustworthy and capable colleagues and collaborators (4) Avoid businesses that seem destined to fail (5) Always search for bargains.

Patience and methodical planning, Tillinghast shows, pay far greater dividends than rash, bold investments. Through sensible instruction, Tillinghast teaches readers how to ask the right questions in any investing situation and think objectively and generatively about portfolio management. © D AV I D S A L A F I A / GETTY IMAGES GLOBAL ASSIGNMENT

Designed Leadership MOURA QUAYLE

Corporate leadership can be myopic in its unwillingness to fail. Education and experience can be limiting to executives—except for lessons learned from the world of design, which, when applied to management, can turn leaders into collaborative, creative, deliberate, and accountable visionaries. Design thinking loosens the mind and activates innovation. It creates the conditions for employees to thrive and for all kinds of businesses to succeed.

In Designed Leadership, the strategic-design scholar and urban-systems designer Moura Quayle shares her plan for integrating design and leadership, translating processes, principles, and practices from years of experience into tools of change for professional leaders. Quayle describes the key concepts of designed leadership, such as “make values explicit” and “learn from natural systems,” showing how strategic design can spur individual creativity and harness collective energy. For managers at any level, Designed Leadership uses original visuals and examples of frontline leadership to teach the kind of thinking, theorizing, and practicing that results in long-lasting high performance in the workplace and beyond.

“Designed Leadership contributes a very thoughtful set of observations about the principles and practices of successful leaders who rely on a ‘strategic design’ approach. Quayle draws on a diverse and impressive range of personal leadership experiences to illustrate and emphasize her points. Insightful yet still accessible.” —Jeanne Liedtka, University of Virginia

Shapeholders

Business Success in the Age of Activism MARK KENNEDY HOW COM PANIES CA N E FFE C T I V E LY E N G AG E W I T H S OCIAL , M ED IA, AND PO L I T I CA L AC T I V I STS .

Today, all it takes is one organizational misstep to sink a company’s reputation. Social media can be a strict ethical enforcer, with the power to convince thousands to boycott products and services. While executives are stuck on appeasing stakeholders— stockholders, employees, and consumers—shapeholders, with no stake in a company—regulators, the media, and social and political activists—are working hard to curb what they see as bad practice.

In Shapeholders, the former congressman, Fortune 500 executive, and university president Mark Kennedy argues that shapeholders, as much as stakeholders, have enormous influence on a business’s fate, with significant power to determine a company’s risks and opportunities, if not its survival. Many international, multi-billion-dollar corporations fail to anticipate activism, and they flounder on first contact. Kennedy zeroes in on the different languages that shapeholders and companies speak and on their contrasting metrics for what constitutes ethical business practice. He teaches executives to be visionary, to sidestep conflict effectively, and to find profitable—and probable—collaborations to diffuse political tensions. Kennedy’s decision matrix helps corporations align their business practices with shapeholder interests, anticipate their demands, and assess the viability of changing moral and ethical standards so that together they can plan a profitable route forward. MARK KENNEDY

“Shapeholders provides top-level leaders a powerful approach to embracing unseen opportunities that lie in what at first appears to be threatening risks. Kennedy’s credentials are indisputable—his many personal experiences with activists from business and politics provide him the gravitas only real engagement can deliver.” —Tim McMahon, Creighton University

Venture Investing in Science

A N D WHAT WE MI SS WHEN WE DO N ’ T I N VEST.

Software companies have increasingly monopolized the flow of venture capital, starving support for scientific research. In the past, these funds have led to steam engines, light bulbs, microprocessors, 3D printers, and even the Internet. In Venture Investing in Science, the venture capitalist Douglas W. Jamison and the investment author Stephen R. Waite directly link financial support to revolutionary advancements in physics, computers, chemistry, and biology and make a passionate case for continued investing to meet the global challenges of our time. “Until reading Venture Investing in Science I had not encountered such a cohesive and well-researched account of the current state of deep science commercialization. Every member of society should understand what allows successful technology commercialization to occur and how to play a part in its success. A great work.” —Braun Kiess, Rutgers Business School

Clean air and water, cures for intractable diseases, greener public transportation, cheaper and faster communication technologies—these are the rich opportunities awaiting venture capital investment today. Jamison and Waite focus on how early-stage companies specializing in quantum computing, graphene chips, and precision medicine struggle for funding, proposing a plan to bring the small IPO back to market to energize deep scientific investment. Commercializing science-based innovation also reactivates the economic dynamism that once defined American dominance in science and technology research. These partnerships have the potential to create legacies, not to mention lift millions out of poverty and secure the public good. DOUGLAS W. JAMISON

Many investors believe that success in investing is either luck or clairvoyance. In Rational Investing, the finance professor Hugues Langlois and the asset manager Jacques Lussier survey the current state of asset management and clarify the conundrum of luck versus skill.

The core of Rational Investing is a framework for smart investing built around three performance drivers: balancing exposure to risk factors, efficiently diversifying bad luck, and taking advantage of relative mispricings in financial markets. With clear examples from model multi-asset-class portfolios, Langlois and Lussier show how to implement performance drivers like institutional investors with access to extensive resources, as well as nonprofessional investors who are constrained to small-scale transactions. There are few investment products, whether traditional or alternative, discretionary or systematic, fundamental or quantitative, whose performance cannot be analyzed through this framework.

What Slaveholders Think

Drawing on fifteen years of work in the antislavery movement, Austin Choi-Fitzpatrick examines the systematic oppression of men, women, and children in rural India and asks: How do contemporary slaveholders rationalize the subjugation of other human beings, and how do they respond when their power is threatened? More than a billion dollars have been spent on antislavery efforts, yet the practice persists. Why? Unpacking what slaveholders think about emancipation is critical for scholars and policy makers who want to understand the broader context, especially as seen by the powerful.

“A much-needed and unique work. Our understanding of modern slavery holds virtually nothing on slaveholders. Such a study has always

Through frank and unprecedented conversations with slaveholders, Choi-Fitzpatrick reveals the condescending and paternalistic thought processes that blind perpetrators. Slaveholders feel they are doing workers a favor, and when victims share this perspective, their emancipation is harder to secure, driving some to ask why slaves fear freedom. The answer, Choi-Fitzpatrick convincingly argues, lies in the power relationship. Whether slaveholders recoil at their past behavior or plot a return to power, Choi-Fitzpatrick zeroes in on the relational dynamics of their self-assessment, unpacking what happens next. Incorporating the experiences of such pivotal actors into antislavery research is an immensely important step toward crafting effective antislavery policies and interventions.

The Age of Lone Wolf Terrorism MARK S. HAMM AND RAMÓN SPAAIJ

The lethality of lone-wolf terrorism has reached an all-time high in the United States. Isolated individuals using firearms with high-capacity magazines are committing brutally efficient killings with the aim of terrorizing others, yet there is little consensus on what connects these crimes and the motivations behind them. In The Age of Lone Wolf Terrorism, the terrorism experts Mark S. Hamm and Ramón Spaaij combine criminological theory with empirical and ethnographic research to map the pathways of lonewolf radicalization, helping with the identification of suspected individuals and patterns of indoctrination. Reviewing more than 200 terrorist incidents, Hamm and Spaaij find that a combination of personal and political grievances lead lone wolves to befriend online sympathizers—whether jihadists, white supremacists, or other antigovernment extremists—and then announce their intent to commit terror when triggered. Hamm and Spaaij distinguish between lone wolves and individuals radicalized within a group dynamic. They conclude with an analysis of recent FBI sting operations designed to prevent lone-wolf terrorism in the United States, describing who gets targeted, strategies for luring suspects, and the ethics of arresting and prosecuting citizens. MARK S. HAMM

“Covering characters as diverse as James Earl Ray, Sirhan Sirhan, Mark Essex, Lynnette ‘Squeaky’ Fromme, Ted Kaczynski, Eric Rudolph, Jared Loughner, Wade Page, and Christopher Dorner, Hamm and Spaaij have written an excellent and well-researched survey of lone-wolf terrorists in the United States—and a major addition to the field.” —Charles B.

Quarks to Culture

How We Came to Be TYLER VOLK

A U N I FI CATI O N O F MATTER, LI FE, A N D HUMA N SO C I ETY.

Atoms combine to form molecules; molecules combine to form single-celled organisms; when people come together, they build societies. Our world is nested, both physically and socially, and at each level we find innovations that were necessary for the next level. Physics has gone far in mapping the basic mechanics of the simplest things and the dynamics of the overall nesting, as have biology and the social sciences for their fields. But what can we say about this beautifully complex whole? Might there be general processes we can identify? How do phases shape others, and what more can we learn about human existence through understanding an enlarged field of creation and being?

“Volk’s identification of a universal principal—combogenesis—allows

Quarks to Culture explores the rhythm within what Tyler Volk calls the “grand sequence,” a series of levels of sizes and innovations building from elementary quanta to globalized human civilization. The key is “combogenesis,” the building-up from combination and integration to produce new things with innovative relations. Themes unfold in how physics and chemistry led to biological evolution and biological evolution, to cultural evolution. Volk develops an inclusive natural philosophy that brings clarity to our place in the world. Quarks to Culture provides new insights into linkages in our sciences and presents an exciting synthesis of ideas across a sequence of things and relations, from physical to living to cultural. It is high adventure for readers who seek to understand big history and wrestle with questions of how we came to be.

By More Than Providence

Grand Strategy and American Power in the Asia Pacific Since 1783 MICHAEL J. GREEN A CO M P R EH ENS IV E H I STO RY O F A M E R I CA N STATEC R AF T IN AS IA A N D T H E L E SS O N S FO R A N EW ER A OF GEOPO L I T I CA L R I VA L RY.

Soon after the American Revolution, the United States began to recognize the strategic significance of Asia and the Pacific and its vast material and cultural resources. Many asked whether the United States should partner with China, which operates at the center of Asia, or Japan, in the Pacific. Where should the United States draw its defensive line, and how should it export democratic principles? In a history that spans the eighteenth century to the present, Michael J. Green follows the development of U.S. policy toward East Asia, identifying recurring themes in American statecraft that reflect the nation’s political philosophy and material realities.

Drawing on archives, interviews, and his experience in the Pentagon and White House, Green finds one overarching concern driving U.S. policy toward East Asia: a fear felt by Americans that a rival power might use the Pacific to isolate and threaten the United States and prevent the ocean from becoming a conduit for the westward free flow of trade, values, and forward defense. By More Than Providence works through these problems from the perspective of history’s major strategists and statesmen, from Thomas Jefferson to Alfred Thayer Mahan and Henry Kissinger. It records the fate of their ideas as they collided with the realities of the Far East and adds clarity to America’s stakes in the region. MICHAEL J. GREEN

“Already a renowned Japan expert, Green combines his regional knowledge with a capacious strategic mind and historical sensibility. This is one of the most impressive books I have ever read. It is consistently original, providing fresh insights on every page immersed in a compelling narrative arc and is destined to be a lodestar among scholarship on history, strategy, and statecraft.” —William Inboden, chair of the Clements Center for National Security, University of Texas at Austin

Of Time and Lamentation

Reflections on Transience RAYMOND TALLIS

A BO LD, O RI GI N A L, A N D THO UGHT- P ROVO KI N G E X PLORATI O N O F THE N ATURE A N D MEA N I N G O F TI ME.

Time’s mysteries seem to resist comprehension and what remains, once the familiar metaphors are stripped away, can test the critical faculties of even the most profound philosopher. In Of Time and Lamentation, Raymond Tallis anatomizes time with characteristic fearlessness, examining the phenomenon as it is lived, expressed in hurry, hope, longing, waiting, planning, joyful expectation, and grief.

“There are few contemporary thinkers F O R S A L E O N LY I N N O R T H A N D S O U T H A M E R I C A

who possess either the breadth of Tallis’s knowledge or the depth of his scholarship. There are fewer still who can write so cogently and insightfully about the human condition.” —Kenan Malik, author of The Quest for a Moral Compass: A Global History of Ethics

“Of Time and Lamentation is an important philosophical investigation, at the same time personal and scholarly—a bold and original experiment in which art and poetry are given as much importance as science, measurements, and equations. —Jimena Canales, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign

Tallis begins with a critique of the spatialized and mathematized account of time arising from physical science. He thinks through the passage of time, the direction of time, and time travel from this perspective, as well as the relationship between mathematics and reality. He next examines tensed time: what we mean by “now,” how we make sense of past and future events, and the idea of eternity. With the scientific reduction of time set aside and lived time reaffirmed, Tallis then digs deeper into the stuff of time, such as instants and intervals, time and change, and the relationship between objective and subjective time. This leads to wider discussions about time and causation, the irruption of subjectivity and intentionality into a material universe, and the relationship between time and freedom. For anyone who has questioned the nature of becoming and wondered whether time is inseparable from change, whether time is punctuate or continuous, or even whether time is real, Of Time and Lamentation shows we are “more than cogs in the universal clock, forced to collaborate with the very progress that pushes us toward our own midnight.” RAYMOND TALLIS

Struggle on Their Minds

The Political Thought of African American Resistance ALEX ZAMALIN

HOW F IV E AF R ICAN A M E R I CA N AC T I V I STS RE VOLUT IONIZED P O L I T I CA L T H O U G H T.

The rise of the American economy, the persistence of social inequality, and the ongoing struggle for adequate political representation cannot be evaluated separately from slavery, the country’s original sin. Five activists who have fought to incorporate slavery into American political discourse are the focus of this timely book. Alex Zamalin considers the American abolitionists David Walker and Frederick Douglass, the antilynching activist Ida B. Wells, the Black Panther Party organizer Huey P. Newton, and the prison reformer Angela Davis. Each through passionate argument revised the core values of the American political tradition and reformed ideas about power, justice, community, action, and the role of emotion in elective outcomes.

These activists encouraged slaves to revolt against their masters, black radical abolitionists to call for the eradication of slavery by any means necessary, black journalists to chastise American institutions for their indifference to lynching, and black radicals to police the police and to condemn racial injustice in the American prison system. These movements prompted political theory to develop a more open conception of individual liberty, engendering new language and concepts to sustain democracy in tense times. Struggle on Their Minds shows how constructive resistance can strengthen the practice of democracy and help disenfranchised groups achieve more social, economic, and political parity. ALEX ZAMALIN

“In intellectually compelling and valuable ways, Struggle on Their Minds presents significant (but relatively neglected) figures in the canon of African-American political theorizing and relates them both to broad idioms of American political thought and to our contemporary political conjuncture.” —George Shulman, Gallatin School of Individualized Study, New York University

International Express New Yorkers on the 7 Train

STÉPHANE TONNELAT AND WILLIAM KORNBLUM H OW THE N EW YO RK C I TY SUBWAY HELP S N EW I M M I GRA N TS ASSI MI LATE.

“What a pleasure it was to read this book! International Express is a tour through a central vein in what is perhaps the most essentially American city, from midtown offices through a variety of immigrant and native-born neighborhoods with different ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic makeups. It is a treat to walk through the subway with Tonnelat and Kornblum and see our shared life through their keen eyes.” —Robert Smith, Baruch College and Graduate Center, CUNY

Nicknamed the International Express, the New York City Transit Authority number 7 subway line runs through a highly diverse series of ethnic and immigrant neighborhoods in Queens. People from Andean South America, Central America, China, India, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, and Vietnam, as well as residents of a number of gentrifying blue-collar and industrial neighborhoods, fill the busy streets around the stations. For newcomers to the city, mastery of life in the subway space is a step toward assimilation into their new home.

In International Express, the French ethnographer Stéphane Tonnelat and his collaborator, William Kornblum, a native New Yorker, ride the 7 subway line to better understand the intricacies of this phenomenon. What develops over time, they find, is a set of shared subway competences leading to a practical cosmopolitanism among riders, including immigrants and their children, that changes their personal values and attitudes toward others in small, subtle ways. Tonnelat and Kornblum pay particular attention to gender and age relations. Their portrait is invaluable for social scientists and urban planners eager to enhance the cooperative experience of city living for immigrants. STÉPHANE TONNELAT

Down the Up Staircase

Three Generations of a Harlem Family BRUCE D. HAYNES AND SYMA SOLOVITCH AN A M ER ICAN M OB IL I T Y STO RY.

Down the Up Staircase traces the social history of Harlem through the lens of one family across three generations, connecting their journey to the historical and social forces that transformed Harlem. The sociologist Bruce D. Haynes and coauthor Syma Solovitch capture the tides of change that pushed blacks forward through the twentieth century—the Great Migration, the Harlem Renaissance, the early civil rights victories, the Black Power and Black Arts movements—and the many social forces that ravaged black communities, including Haynes’s own. Haynes brings unique sociological insights to the American mobility saga and the tenuous nature of status and success among the black middle class. All four great-grandparents on Haynes’s father’s side owned land in the South as early as 1880. His grandfather, George Edmund Haynes, was the founder of the National Urban League and a protégé of the eminent black sociologist W. E. B. Du Bois; his grandmother, a noted children’s author of the Harlem Renaissance and a prominent social scientist. Yet these early gains provided little anchor to the succeeding generations. This story is told against the backdrop of a crumbling three-story brownstone in Sugar Hill that once hosted Harlem Renaissance elites. Down the Up Staircase is a stirring portrait of this family, each generation walking a tightrope, one misstep from free fall.

“Haynes’s story is a classic American tale that combines the big themes of history with the gritty reality of a single family’s extraordinary story.” —Jeffrey Toobin, legal analyst, The New Yorker

Rapture ILIAZD

Translated by Thomas J. Kitson A M A N TESTS THE LI MI TS O F WHAT I S P OSSI B LE I N LI FE A N D LOVE I N THI S EA RLY TWEN TI ETH- C EN TURY N OVEL.

The draft dodger Laurence yearns to take control of his destiny. Having fled to the highlands, he asserts his independence by committing a string of robberies and murders. Then he happens upon Yulita, a beautiful young woman trapped in an intricately carved mahogany house. Laurence does not hesitate to take her as well. Determined to drape his young bride in jewels, he plots ever more daring heists. Yet when Laurence finds himself casting bombs alongside members of a revolutionary cell, he must again ask: is he a free man or a pawn of history? “Magical . . . like a wizard’s spell.” —Aleksandr Goldshtein, Nezavisimaia Gazeta

“[An] absolutely peculiar world that engulfs the reader from the first line.” —Boris Poplavsky

Rapture is a fast-paced adventure-romance and a literary treat of the highest order. The author, Iliazd, entertains, with a deceptively light hand, questions that James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, and Thomas Mann once faced. How does the individual balance freedom and necessity, love and death, creativity and sterility? What is the role of violence in human history and culture? How does language both comfort and fail us in our postwar, post-Christian world?

Censored for decades in the Soviet Union, Rapture was a novel nearly lost to Russian and Western audiences. This English-language translation rescues Laurence’s surreal journey from the oblivion he, too, faces as he as he tries to outrun fate. ILIAZD

(1894–1975) is the nom de plume of Ilia Zdanevich, an emigré

who arrived in Paris after the Russian Civil War in time to participate in the last days of Paris Dada and the birth of surrealism. Unable to publish his writing, Iliazd forged a new career in book art, gaining fame for the series of artists’ books he published under the “41 degrees” imprint.

An unsung gem of nineteenth-century Russian literature, City Folk and Country Folk is a seemingly gentle yet devastating satire of Russia’s aristocratic and pseudo-intellectual elites in the 1860s. Translated into English for the first time, the novel weaves an engaging tale of manipulation, infatuation, and female assertiveness that takes place one year after the liberation of the empire’s serfs. Upending Russian literary clichés of female passivity and rural gentry benightedness, Sofia Khvoshchinskaya centers her story on a commonsense, hardworking noblewoman and her self-assured daughter living on their small rural estate. The antithesis of the thoughtful, intellectual, and self-denying young heroines created by Khvoshchinskaya’s male peers, especially by Ivan Turgenev, seventeen-year-old Olenka ultimately leads the two to triumph over the urbanites’ financial, amorous, and matrimonial machinations. Khvoshchinskaya and her writer sisters closely mirror Britain’s Brontës, yet Khvoshchinskaya’s work contains more of Jane Austen’s wit and social repartee, as well an intellectual engagement reminiscent of Elizabeth Gaskell’s condition-of-England novels. Written by a woman under a male pseudonym, this entertaining exploration of gender dynamics on a post-emancipation Russian estate offers a fresh point of comparison with the better-known classics of nineteenth-century world literature. SOFIA KHVOSHCHINSKAYA

(1824–1865), writer, translator, and

painter, published fiction and social commentary in Russia’s most influential journals. She and her sister Nadezhda wrote to support their family, struggling members of the nobility, alternating long stretches of toil in their native Ryazan Province with visits to Russia’s capitals, where they interacted with some of the country’s leading intellectuals.

The first consumer credit bureaus appeared in the 1870s and quickly amassed huge archives of deeply personal information about millions of Americans. Today, the three leading credit bureaus are among the most powerful institutions in modern life. Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion are multibillion-dollar corporations that track our movements, spending behavior, and financial status. These data are used to predict our riskiness as borrowers and to judge our trustworthiness and value in a broad array of contexts, from insurance and marketing to employment and housing.

In Creditworthy, the first comprehensive history of this crucial American institution, Josh Lauer explores the evolution of credit reporting from its nineteenth-century origins to the rise of the modern consumer-data industry. By revealing the sophistication of early credit-reporting networks, Creditworthy highlights the leading role that commercial surveillance has played—ahead of state surveillance systems—in monitoring the economic lives of Americans. Ultimately, Lauer argues that by converting individual reputations into brief written reports—and, later, credit ratings and credit scores—credit bureaus invented the modern concept of financial identity. Creditworthiness is never just about economic “facts.” It is fundamentally concerned with—and determines—our social standing as honest, reliable, profit-generating people.

In the 1960s and ’70s, a diverse range of storefronts— including head shops, African American bookstores, feminist businesses, and organic grocers—countered corporate power by bringing the work of political movements (the New Left, Black Power, feminism, environmentalism, and more) into the marketplace. Through shared ownership, limited growth, and workplace democracy, these “activist entrepreneurs” offered alternatives to conventional profit-driven business models. By the middle of the 1970s, thousands of these businesses operated across the United States—but only a handful survive today, and some, like Whole Foods Market, have abandoned their quest for collective political change in favor of the pursuit of profits. Portraying the struggles, successes, and sacrifices made by these activist business owners, From Head Shops to Whole Foods writes a new history of social movements and capitalism by showing how activists embraced small businesses in a way few historians have considered. The book rethinks the widespread idea that the work of social movements and political dissent is by definition antithetical to business and market activity. Joshua Clark Davis uncovers the historical roots of contemporary interest in ethical consumption, social enterprise, mission-driven businesses, and buying local while also showing how current companies have adopted the language—but rarely the mission—of liberation and social change. JOSHUA CLARK DAVIS

“In this beautifully written, elegantly conceived, and deeply researched book, Davis traces the histories of 1960s-era small enterprises aimed at alternative forms of capitalism. His clear prose and sharp analysis illuminates the U.S. economy’s appetite for reform under capitalism. An essential work.” —Charles McGovern, William and Mary

The Recovery Revolution

The Battle Over Addiction Treatment in the United States CLAIRE D. CLARK A H I STO RY O F THE P O LI TI CA L, MO RA L, A N D I D E O LO GI CA L I N FLUEN C ES SHA P I N G DRUGR E H A B I LI TATI O N A N D TREATMEN T P RO GRA MS I N POSTWA R A MERI CA .

In the 1960s, a new addiction-treatment industry arose in America in response to an epidemic of drug use. Over the next five decades, its leaders made a relentless push to rehabilitate the casualties of America’s growing drug culture—even as rates of incarceration for drug-related offenses climbed. Based on extensive interviews with drug-rehabilitation professionals and archival research, The Recovery Revolution writes a history of these programs and the cultural and political uses of the industry.

“The Recovery Revolution recounts the origins, history, and influence of

Synanon, a drug-treatment program launched in California in 1958, emphasized a community-based approach to rehabilitation. It led to the therapeutic community (TC) model, which encouraged peer confrontation as a path to recovery. While Synanon became embroiled in controversy for its increasingly unorthodox methods, the TC practice spread rapidly throughout the country, complementing the changing mores regarding drug use and rehabilitation. In the 1970s, the Nixon administration promoted the TC approach to treat heroin users. The Reagan administration then folded TC treatment into its Just Say No campaign, synthesizing political, medical, public health, and business and marketing interests. TC providers subsequently began fighting to stay relevant. Their response, Clark shows, continues to affect drug policy and rehabilitation efforts.

modern ‘therapeutic communities’ as a treatment for addiction. It argues that these shrewdly-marketed programs and their charismatic leaders played a central role in shifting American drug policy away from traditional punitive responses and toward therapeutic responses starting with Synanon in the late 1950s. Clark’s book is extensively and creatively researched, intelligently and fluidly written, and performs a crucial task for modern drug historiography.” —David Herzberg, University of Buffalo

The Diagnostic System

Why the Classification of Psychiatric Disorders is Necessary, Difficult, and Never Settled JASON SCHNITTKER AN I NV EST IGAT ION I N TO A TAXO N O M Y T H AT PRO FOUND LY AF F EC TS M I L L I O N S O F L I V E S .

Mental illness is a natural phenomenon that is also shaped by society and culture. It is biological but also behavioral and social. Mental illness is a problem of both the brain and the mind, and this ambiguity presents a challenge for those who seek to accurately classify psychiatric disorders. The leading resource we have for doing so is the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, but no edition of the manual has provided a decisive solution, and all have created controversy. In The Diagnostic System, the sociologist Jason Schnittker looks at the multiple actors involved in crafting the DSM and the many interests that the manual hopes to serve.

Schnittker shows that the classification of psychiatric disorders is best understood within the context of a system that involves diverse parties with differing interests. The public wants a better understanding of personal suffering. Mental-health professionals seek reliable and treatable diagnostic categories. Scientists want definitions that correspond as closely as possible to nature. Even the best classification system cannot satisfy all of these interests simultaneously, and revisions to diagnostic criteria often serve the interests of one group at the expense of another. Schnittker urges us to become comfortable with the socially constructed nature of categorization and accept that a perfect taxonomy of mental-health disorders will remain elusive. JASON SCHNITTKER

“The particular strength of this very well-written critique of psychiatric diagnosis is to examine how the DSM has a variety of constituencies— clinicians, researchers, patients, the general public—that each have their own ways of approaching the manual.” —Allan Horwitz, Rutgers University

Sociophobia

Political Change in the Digital Utopia CÉSAR RENDUELES Foreword by Roberto Simanowski Translated by Heather Cleary H OW VI RTUA L CO MMUN I TI ES HAVE MASK ED A N D I N S O M E CASES EXAC ERBATED SO C I A L P RO B LEMS.

The great ideological cliché of our time, César Rendueles argues in Sociophobia, is the idea that communication technologies can support positive social dynamics and improve economic and political conditions. We would like to believe that the Internet has given us the tools to overcome modernity’s practical dilemmas and bring us into closer relation, but recent events show how technology has in fact driven us farther apart.

“The enthralling Sociophobia urges

Named one of the ten best books of the year by Babelia El País, Sociophobia looks at the root causes of neoliberal utopia’s modern collapse. It begins by questioning the cyber-fetishist dogma that lulls us into thinking our passive relationship with technology plays a positive role in resolving longstanding differences. Rendueles claims that the World Wide Web has produced a diminished rather than augmented social reality. In other words, it has lowered our expectations with respect to political interventions and personal relations. In an effort to correct this trend, Rendueles embarks on an ambitious reassessment of our antagonistic political traditions to prove that post-capitalism is not only a feasible, intimate, and friendly system to strive for but also essential for moving past consumerism and political malaise.

us to critically rethink certain fundamental terms of our times, such as cooperation, compromise, community, and participation, and it reminds us of the extent to which we are only partially rational beings.” —Lucía del Moral Espín, Revista Redes

“Sociophobia goes to the heart of the problem of political organization as it concerns radical protest and resistance movements and takes a sober approach to the role of new media in fomenting alternative political structures.”

The Ethics of Opting Out Queer Theory’s Defiant Subjects MARI RUTI WHAT IS T H E R OL E O F S U BJ E C T I V I T Y, D E FI A N C E , AGE NCY, AND AF F EC T T H E O RY I N CO N T E M PO R A RY QU EER T H EORY ?

In its quest for effective forms of political resistance, queer theory often promotes opting out of our culture’s dominant ideals––particularly its neoliberal narratives of success, cheerfulness, good performance, and self-actualization––to the extent that the field seems synonymous with a permanent state of critique. How should we understand this stance? Is it the best foundation for queer theory?

In The Ethics of Opting Out, Mari Ruti cautions queer theorists against turning antinormativity into a new norm while highlighting the ways in which opting out rewrites ethical theory and practice in genuinely transformative ways. She offers a comprehensive overview of the current state of queer theory, including debates about affect theory, subjectivity, negativity, defiance, agency, and bad feelings. In doing so, Ruti provides an accessible yet theoretically rigorous account of the political divisions that have animated the field over the last decade. The Ethics of Opting Out grapples with queer negativity, particularly in the work of Lee Edelman, Jack Halberstam, and Lynne Huffer, and with the rhetoric of bad feelings found in the work of Sara Ahmed, Lauren Berlant, José Muñoz, David Eng, and Heather Love. In this wide-ranging and thoughtful book, Ruti maps the parameters of contemporary queer theory to rethink the foundational assumptions of the field. MARI RUTI

“The Ethics of Opting Out makes an unprecedented and unparalleled intervention in the field of queer theory. Ruti brings her profound expertise in both Lacanian theory and Foucauldian thought to the project, and it enables her to write a book that transcends the division that has otherwise defined the field. This book is required reading not only for queer theorists but also for anyone concerned with the question of ethics today.” —Todd McGowan, author of Capitalism and Desire: The Psychic Cost of Free Markets

Extraordinary Bodies

Figuring Physical Disability in American Culture and Literature

Twentieth Anniversary Edition

ROSEMARIE GARLAND THOMSON “With this important work, Thomson not only redefines disability studies, but also makes a contribution to feminist, poststructuralist, and race theory and provides fresh rereadings of both canonical and noncanonical literary texts.” —Joyce Huff, College Literature

“[Thomson] digs deep and offers profound insights into the interrelationships among the theories, practices, and dominant ideologies of a particular historical period as they have had an impact on the position of disabled people.” —Simi Linton, Signs: Journal of Women in Culture & Society

“Fascinating and theoretically rich.” —Anthony Hutchison, Journal of American Studies

Extraordinary Bodies is a cornerstone text of disability studies. Framing disability as a minority discourse rather than a medical one, the book added depth to oppressive narratives and revealed novel, liberatory ones. Through her incisive readings of such texts as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s Uncle Tom’s Cabin and Rebecca Harding Davis’s Life in the Iron Mills, Rosemarie Garland-Thomson exposed the social forces driving representations of disability. She encouraged new ways of looking at texts and their depiction of the body and stretched the limits of what counted as a text, considering freak shows and other pop culture artifacts as reflections of community rites and fears. Extraordinary Bodies laid the groundwork for an appreciation of disability culture and an inclusive new approach to the study of social marginalization. “An adventurous, sensible, passionate book that invites readers to rethink the groundbreaking work of theorists who have shaped academic discourse on marginality and the female body.” —Catherine J.

“Do You Have a Band?”

Poetry and Punk Rock in New York City DANIEL KANE FROM LOU R EED AND PAT T I S M I T H TO R I CH A R D H E L L AND EIL EEN M Y L ES , H OW N E W YO R K CI T Y PO ETS A ND MU S IC IANS P R OD UCE D S O M ET H I N G N E W A N D E XC I T IN G FOR AM ER ICAN C ULTU R E .

During the late 1960s and throughout the 1970s, New York City poets and musicians played together, published each other, and inspired one another to create groundbreaking art. In “Do You Have a Band?”, Daniel Kane captures this sometimes turbulent exchange and its challenge to the status of the visionary artist, the cultural capital of poetry, and the lines dividing sung lyric from page-bound poem. Kane demonstrates the ways in which musicians borrowed from each other’s forms. Performers such as Lou Reed looked to poetry to give their music a more literary quality while the poets Ed Sanders and Dennis Cooper were drawn to the immediacy and energy of rock and punk music. Kane conducts rich studies of such proto-punk bands as The Fugs and the Velvet Underground. He reads the music and writing of Richard Hell, Lydia Lunch, and Patti Smith against the poetry of Anne Waldman, Eileen Myles, Bruce Andrews, Kathy Acker, Ted Berrigan, Ron Padgett, and Andrew Wiley. Kane shows how and why punk musicians drew on French symbolist writing, the vatic resonance of the Beat chant, and the New York School of poetry. As punk music found its way into the poetry of the 1960s and 1970s downtown scene, writers developed fresh ideas for their own poetics and related performance styles. DANIEL KANE

“Critics have long remarked that Lou Reed, Richard Hell, Patti Smith, and other musicians associated with the emergence of punk rock began their careers in the New York poetry world. Why then are timeless evocations of the Rimbaudian maudit all we ever hear about in regards to their interest in poetry? Banishing these clichés with a critical power chord, “Do You Have a Band?” brings into view the actual landscape of later New York School poetics in which (and often against which) New York punk rock took shape.” —Lytle Shaw, New York University

Religion Within Reason STEVEN M. CAHN

W H Y A N D HOW RELI GI O N SHO ULD B E FREED FRO M A R E LI A N C E O N SUP ERN ATURA LI SM.

In the views of most believers and critics, religion is essentially connected to the existence of a supernatural deity. If supernaturalism is not reasonable, the argument goes, religion cannot be reasonable—or if supernaturalism is reasonable, religion must be as well. Are faith and reason, religion and science, doomed to a constant struggle for the heart of humanity? Steven M. Cahn believes that they are not, that even if God exists, religion may not be justified and that even if religion is justified, belief in God may not be.

In Religion Within Reason, Cahn argues that the common understanding of the relationship between religion and supernaturalism is flawed and that while supernaturalism is not reasonable, religious commitment may well be. Writing not as a theist but as one who finds much to admire in a religious life, he examines faith and reason, miracles, heaven and hell, religious diversity, and the problem of evil, using a variety of examples taken from religious thought, literature, and popular culture. Lucidly written in a nonpolemical spirit, Religion Within Reason offers an exciting new approach to the reconciliation of science and religion.

“Religion Within Reason has a distinctive clarity and accessibility. Given all of the attention to religious conviction and its (alleged) importance for morality, citizenship, patriotism, and civilization, there is need for this concise yet impactful book that makes the case against God’s existence while also allowing for the goodness of a religious life.” —Robert Talisse, Vanderbilt University

How the Gloves Came Off traces the unmaking of the consensus against torture held by the American military, executive-branch lawyers, and the public. It implicates U.S. military commanders, high-level government administrators, lawyers, and policy makers from both parties, exposing the ease with which powerful actors manipulated ambiguities in norms and laws to strip detainees of their humanity. By targeting the logic that made torture thinkable, this book shows how decision makers can set a new course for U.S. policy toward POWs and detainees. ELIZABETH GRIMM ARSENAULT

Preventive Engagement proposes a long-term strategy for how the United States can manage the risks of a more turbulent world in a way that lessens the demand for––and potential drain on––U.S. power. Its novel approach adapts the basic techniques of early detection used to prevent many societal problems, such as infectious diseases, violent crime, and drug trafficking. With examples from Syria, Ukraine, and the South China Sea, Preventive Engagement illuminates the role that international actors, including NGOs, the United Nations, regional organizations, and private businesses, can play to further U.S. preventive goals.

Holy Wars or Holy Alliances

The Return of Religion to the Global Political Stage MANLIO GRAZIANO

A CLOSE LO O K AT THE RETURN O F RELI GI O N TO I N T E R N ATI O N A L P O LI TI C S.

Religions are creeping back into the social, political, and economic spheres previously occupied by secular institutions and ideologies. Disillusioned with industrial progress and cut off from opportunity and wealth, many are looking to Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and Christianity to restore a sense of purpose not found in daily life. Since the 1970s, the Catholic Church has sought a “holy alliance” among the world’s religions to recentralize religious ideas and practice in modern society.

“In a clear and luminous way, Graziano demonstrates how religions, in the plural, came to reinvest in the political sphere and provides his readers with a full comprehension of the geopolitical dynamics at work in our world today.” —Souleymane Bachir Diagne, Columbia University

Holy Wars or Holy Alliances explores the nationstate’s current crisis to better understand its origins and future development. Focusing on the Catholic Church, Manlio Graziano looks at how Catholicism has coordinated world religions in joint actions. Through its material, financial, and institutional strength, the Church has gained power and increased its profile in international politics. Challenging the ideas that modernity is tied to progress and religion necessarily means decline, Graziano documents the “return” or the “revenge” of God in all facets of secular life. He shows that tolerance, pluralism, democracy, and science have not triumphed as claimed in modern times. To fully grasp the destabilizing dynamics at work in our world today, Graziano argues, we must appreciate the nature of the religious struggles and political holy wars now unfolding across the international stage.

Leading jihadist groups such as al-Qaeda and the Islamic State dominate through cooperation in the form of knowledge sharing, resource sharing, joint training exercises, and operational collaboration. They build alliances and lesser partnerships with other formal and informal terrorist actors to recruit foreign fighters and spread their message worldwide. Whether they consist of friends or foes or are connected locally or online, these networks create a wellspring of support for jihadist organizations that never runs dry. Nexus of Global Jihad identifies types of terrorist actors, the nature of their partnerships, and the environments in which they prosper to explain global jihadist terrorism’s resilience.

Nexus of Global Jihad brings to light an emerging style of “networked cooperation” that works alongside interorganizational terrorist cooperation to establish bonds of varying depth and endurance. Case studies use recently declassified materials to illuminate al-Qaeda’s dealings from Iran to the Arabian Peninsula and the informal actors that power the Sharia4 movement. The book proposes policies that increase intelligence gathering on informal terrorist actors, constrain enabling environments, and disrupt terrorist networks according to different types of cooperation. It is a vital text for strategists and scholars struggling to understand a growing spectrum of terrorist groups. ASSAF MOGHADAM

Fear, Wonder, and Science in the New Age of Reproductive Biotechnology

“Impressive in its breadth, Fear, Wonder, and Science in the New Age of Reproductive Biotechnology contains case studies, historical narratives, and ethical conundrums showcasing the advances in our understanding of the basic science of human fertilization and development. Correcting misconceptions that have permeated the mainstream infertility literature, Gilbert and Pinto-Correia write the kind of lucid explanations of these complex technological feats that have probably never reached this readership but should have a long time ago.” —Katayoun Chamany, New School

How does one make a decision today about in vitro fertilization, abortion, egg freezing, surrogacy, and other matters of reproduction? This book provides the intellectual and emotional intelligence to help individuals make informed choices amid misinformation and competing claims. Scott Gilbert and Clara Pinto-Correia, renowned scientists and communicators, speak to the couple trying to become pregnant, the woman contemplating an abortion, and the student searching for sound information about human sex and reproduction. Their book is an enlightening read for men as well as for women, describing in clear terms how babies come into existence through both natural and assisted reproductive pathways.

The book first covers the most recent and wellgrounded scientific conclusions about fertilization and early human embryology. It then discusses the reasons why some of the major forms of assisted reproductive technologies were invented, how they are used, and what they can and cannot accomplish. Most important, the authors explore the emotional side of using these technologies to become pregnant, focusing on those who have emptied their emotions and bank accounts in a valiant effort to get pregnant. This work of science and human biology is informed by a moral concern for our common humanity. SCOTT F. GILBERT

The Science and Ideology of Intelligence KEN RICHARDSON A RIGOR OUS C R IT IQ U E O F H OW S CI E N C E H AS PRO M OT ED AN ID EO LO GY O F L I M I T E D I N T E L L I G E N CE AND S OC IAL INEQUA L I T Y—A N D H OW TO OV E R CO M E I T.

For countless generations people have been told that their potential as humans is limited and unequal. The social order, they have been assured, is arranged by powers beyond their control. More recently the appeal has been to biology, specifically the genes, brain sciences, the concept of intelligence, and powerful new technologies. Reinforced through the authority of science and a growing belief in biodeterminism, the ordering of the many for the benefit of a few has become more entrenched.

In Genes, Brains, and Human Potential, Ken Richardson illustrates how the ideology of human intelligence has infiltrated genetics, brain science, and psychology, flourishing in the vagueness of basic concepts, a shallow nature-versus-nurture debate, and the overhyped claims of reductionists. He shows how ideology, more than pure science, has come to dominate our institutions, especially education, encouraging fatalism about the development of human intelligence among individuals and societies. Genes, Brains, and Human Potential builds on work being done in molecular biology, epigenetics, dynamical systems, evolution theory, and complexity theory and concludes with an upbeat message for human possibilities. It offers a synthesis of diverse perspectives that will engender new conversations among students, researchers, and other interested readers. KEN RICHARDSON

“In his latest book, Genes, Brains and Human Potential, Richardson has again creatively illuminated the bases and limitations of reductionist genetic accounts of human intelligence, showing how cuttingedge research provides a valid alternative to such counterfactual and egregiously flawed models. Informative and inspiring, he convincingly counters these failed accounts of intelligence, forwarding a new relational theory of human development.” —Richard M.

What Remains

Everyday Encounters with the Socialist Past in Germany JONATHAN BACH W H AT RO LE DO O RDI N A RY O B J EC TS P LAY I N CO MI N G TO T ERMS WI TH THE PAST?

What happens when an entire modern state’s material culture becomes abruptly obsolete? How do ordinary people encounter what remains? In this ethnography, Jonathan Bach examines the afterlife of East Germany following the fall of the Berlin Wall as things and places from that vanished socialist past continue to circulate and shape the politics of memory.

“What Remains is a perceptive— and perhaps more crucially—very sympathetic account of multiple ways through which ordinary people try to take hold of their politically controversial past. Bach creates an intricate yet highly accessible story about the past that is not quite gone.” —Serguei Oushakine, Princeton University

What Remains traces the unsettling effects of these unmoored artifacts on the German present, arguing for a rethinking of the role of the everyday as a site of reckoning with difficult pasts. Bach juxtaposes four sites where the stakes of the everyday appear: products commodified as nostalgia, amateur museums dedicated to collecting everyday life under socialism, the “people’s palace” that captured the national imagination through its destruction, and the feared and fetishized Berlin Wall. Moving from the local, intimate, and small to the national, impersonal, and large, this book’s interpenetrating chapters show the unexpected social and political force of the ordinary in the production of memory. What Remains offers a unique vantage point on the workings of the everyday in situations of radical discontinuity, contributing to new understandings of postsocialism and the intricate intersection of material remains and memory.

Discovering Prices

Auction Design in Markets with Complex Constraints PAUL MILGROM A L E A DI N G ECO N O MI ST P RESEN TS A N EW THEO RY O F AU C T I O N DESI GN FO R TO DAY’ S CO MP LEX MA RK ETS.

Traditional economics focuses on hypothetical markets in which prices alone can guide efficient allocation, with no need for central organization. Such models build from Adam Smith’s famous concept of the invisible hand, which guides markets and renders regulation or interference largely unnecessary. Yet for many markets, prices alone are not enough, and regulation alone is not enough either. Consider air traffic control at major airports. While prices could encourage airlines to take off and land at less congested times, prices alone are too blunt a tool; only with an air-traffic-control system can we avoid disastrous consequences. Yet markets have the benefit of forcing efficiency: we don’t waste resources that we must pay to use. What’s needed in this and many other real-world cases is an auction system that can effectively incorporate prices while still maintaining enough direct control to ensure that complex constraints are satisfied.

“No one has greater knowledge or, perhaps more importantly, more reliable instincts when it comes to incentive auction design. Milgrom’s excellent book should be made available to economists as soon as possible.” —Leslie Marx, Duke University

In Discovering Prices, Paul Milgrom—the world’s most frequently cited academic expert on auction design—describes how auctions can be used to discover prices and guide efficient resource allocations, even when resources are diverse and there are critical constraints. Economists have long understood that externalities and market power both necessitate market organization. In this book, Milgrom introduces complex constraints as another reason for market design. Milgrom roots his theories in real-world examples and provides economists with crucial new tools for dealing with the world’s growing complex-resource-allocation problems. PAUL MILGROM

Cataclysms

A New Geology for the Twenty-First Century MICHAEL R. RAMPINO A CO NT R OV ER S IAL LO O K AT E A RT H ’ S V I O L E N T PAST AND T H E M AJ OR EXTI N C T I O N E V E N TS CAU S E D BY CATAC LYS M S F R OM A BOV E A N D BE LOW.

In 1980, a maverick team of researchers proposed that a massive meteor strike had wiped the dinosaurs and other fauna from the Earth 66 million years ago. Scientists found evidence for this theory in a “crater of doom” on the Yucatan Peninsula that showed our planet has been the target in a galactic shooting gallery. Seeking to develop “neocatastrophism” even further, Michael R. Rampino adds to this exciting field in Cataclysms, building on the latest findings from leading geoscientists.

Rampino recounts his conversion to the impact hypothesis, describing his visits to meteor-strike sites and his review of the existing geological record. His story enables a richer understanding of the science behind major planetary upheavals and extinction events. The new geology he outlines explicitly rejects nineteenth-century “uniformitarianism,” which casts planetary change as gradual and driven by processes we can see at work today. Rampino’s new geology offers a cosmic context for Earth’s geologic evolution, in which cataclysms from above in the form of comets and asteroid impacts and from below in the form of huge outpourings of lava in flood-basalt eruptions have led to severe changes in the Earth’s surface. The new geology sees Earth’s position in our solar system and galaxy as the keys to understanding our planet’s geology and history of life. The author concludes with a fascinating take on dark matter’s potential as a triggering mechanism, considering its role in heating Earth’s core and spurring massive volcanism throughout geologic time. MICHAEL R. RAMPINO

“Cataclysms is the most useful, wellwritten, and not overly technical summary of neocatastrophism since the Alvarez team published their initial work in the early 1980s. The book is well written and paints a lively picture of how work in the area of geoscience is actually done—aided and abetted to good purpose by copious illustrations.” —Niles Eldredge, author of Eternal Ephemera: Adaptation and the Origin of Species from the Nineteenth Century Through Punctuated Equilibria and Beyond

Islam

An American Religion NADIA MARZOUKI Foreword by Olivier Roy W H AT A RE THE P O LI TI CA L CO N FLI C TS OVER MUSLI MS’ R I G H TS I N THE UN I TED STATES A N D HOW HAS I SLA M T E ST ED THE LI MI TS O F FREE SP EEC H?

Using arguments that borrow from the themes and forms of European disputes, Islam: An American Religion demonstrates how, paradoxically, Islam as built in the United States has become an American religion in a double sense—first, through the strategies of recognition adopted by Muslims and, second, through the formatting of Islam as a faith.

In Islam: An American Religion, Nadia Marzouki investigates how Islam has developed a major stake in American politics. Focusing on the period from 2008 to 2013, she revisits the uproar over the construction of mosques in the United States, legal disputes around the prohibition of Islamic law and foreign law, and the overseas promotion of religious freedom. She argues that public controversies over Islam in the United States primarily reflect the American public’s profound divisions and ambivalence toward the meaning and legitimacy of liberal secular democracy.

“Marzouki provides a unique approach to contemporary American political discourse surrounding Islam and documents vital results likely to remain relevant to readers in the United States and Europe for quite some time.” —Denise A. Spellberg, author of Thomas Jefferson’s Qur’an: Islam and the Founders

Evolution

What the Fossils Say and Why It Matters Second Edition

Donald R. Prothero’s Evolution is an entertaining and rigorous history of the transitional forms and series found in the the fossil record. Its engaging narrative of scientific discovery and well-grounded analysis has led to the book’s widespread adoption in courses that teach the nature and value of fossil evidence. Evolution tackles flood geology, rock dating, neo-Darwinism, and macroevolution. It includes extensive coverage of the primordial soup, invertebrate transitions, the development of the backbone, the reign of the dinosaurs, and the transformation from chimpanzee to human.

In this second edition, Prothero describes new transitional fossils from various periods, vividly depicting such bizarre creatures as the Odontochelys, or the “turtle on the half shell;” fossil snakes with legs; and the “Frogamander,” a new example of amphibian transition. Prothero’s discussion of intelligent-design arguments includes more historical examples and careful examination of the “experiments” and observations that are exploited by creationists seeking to undermine sound science education. The first edition was hailed as the best book on the fossil evidence for evolution, and this second edition will be welcome in the libraries of scholars, teachers, and general readers who stand up for sound science. DONALD R. PROTHERO

“If you are one of these people who likes to read Dawkins, Gould, and Darwin, I would highly recommend this book.

Remains of Life

“Wu He is one of the most innovative Chinese-language writers today and Berry is one of the best translators of Chinese. I cannot think of a modern literary work in the Chinese-language that is comparable to Remains of Life, and this translation is excellent. Although the scale of the tragedy was smaller than other genocides, the Musha Incident can be termed as a ‘Taiwan Holocaust.’ For this reason, and for its literary achievement, Remains of Life deserves a place alongside Maus by Art Spiegelman and Austerlitz by W. G. Sebald.” —Lingchei Letty Chen, author of Writing Chinese: Reshaping Chinese Cultural Identity

On October 27, 1930, during a sports meet at Musha Elementary School on an aboriginal reservation in the mountains of Taiwan, a bloody uprising occurred unlike anything Japan had experienced in its colonial history. Before noon, the Atayal tribe had slain one hundred and thirty-four Japanese in a headhunting ritual. The Japanese responded with a militia of three thousand, heavy artillery, airplanes, and internationally banned poisonous gas, bringing the tribe to the brink of genocide.

Nearly seventy years later, Chen Guocheng, a writer known as Wu He, or “Dancing Crane,” investigated the long forgotten Musha Incident to search for any survivors and their descendants. The result is Wu He’s novel Remains of Life, which imagines the impetus behind this disturbing event and questions its legitimacy and accuracy. In his novel, Wu He walks a tightrope between the primitive and the civilized, beauty and violence, fact and fiction.His is a one-of-a-kind work and a milestone in Chinese literature, winning nearly every major national literary award upon its publication in Taiwan, including the Taipei Creative Writing Award for Literature, the China Times’s Ten Best Books of the Year Award, the United Daily Readers’s Choice Award, Ming Pao’s Ten Best Books of the Year Award, and the Kingstone Award for the Most Influential Book of the Year.

Must We Divide History Into Periods?

JACQUES LE GOFF

Translated by Malcolm DeBevoise “Richly informative and thought-provoking.” —New York Review of Books

Jacques Le Goff argues that many innovations we associate with the Renaissance have medieval roots, and that many deplorable aspects of medieval society flourished during the Renaissance. We should view Western civilization as undergoing several “renaissances” following the fall of Rome, over the course of a long Middle Ages that lasted until the mid-eighteenth century. “A good book that leaves the reader with interesting questions.” —Inside Higher Ed

Blending history, fieldwork, theory, and policy analysis, this book investigates in principle and practice Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s declaration that the subjugation of women worldwide is a serious threat to U.S. national security. “I recommend it.” —Nicholas Kristof, New York Times

“Nuanced, sober, and meticulous.” —Midwest Book Review

“[Hudson and Leidl] make the case that advancing the status of women will require giving the issue a permanent place on the U.S. foreign policy agenda.” —Foreign Affairs

For decades, scientists have largely focused on the regions of the genome that contain codes for the production of proteins. Other regions have been dismissed as “junk.” Drawing on her experience with leading scientific investigators in Europe and North America, Nessa Carey provides a compelling introduction to junk DNA and its critical involvement in phenomena as diverse as genetic diseases, viral infections, sex determination in mammals, and evolution. “[Carey] has an excellent grasp of the history of junk DNA and its implications for both basic and applied science. She has a gift for analogies and converts complex biochemistry into imagery that brings it to a level nonspecialists can grasp.” —Elof Axel Carlson, Quarterly Review of Biology

Despite their shared interests and values, divergent identities have driven a wedge between Japan and South Korea. This book investigates the roots of this split and its ongoing threat to the region and the world. “A useful overview of an important trilateral relationship.”

Through a cutting-edge historical, sociological, and political analysis, Ho-fung Hung details the competing interests and economic realities that temper the dream of Chinese supremacy—forces that are stymieing growth throughout the global South. for anyone concerned with

Arguing against those who talk about a world in which American culture is merely replicated or appropriated, Edwards focuses on creative moments of uptake, in which Arabs and Iranians make something unexpected. He believes these products reflect a world in which culture endlessly circulates and gathers new meanings.

Eli Zaretsky reveals the power of Freudian thought to illuminate the great political conflicts of the twentieth century. Developing an original concept of “political Freudianism,” he shows how twentieth-century radicals, activists, and intellectuals used psychoanalytic ideas to probe consumer capitalism, racial violence, antiSemitism, and patriarchy.

Consumed nostalgia took definite shape in the 1970s, spurred by an increase in the turnover of consumer goods, the commercialization of childhood, and the skillful marketing of nostalgia. In this book, Gary Cross immerses readers in this fascinating and often delightful history, unpacking the cultural dynamics that turn pop tunes into oldies and childhood toys into valuable commodities.

“An important book for anyone interested in the issues surrounding stem cell research.”

Gathering together twelve major sociologists, Craig Calhoun launches a thorough reconsideration of Robert K. Merton’s work, which addressed the challenges of integrating research and theory. Merton connected different fields of empirical research and spoke to the importance of overcoming divisions between allegedly pure and applied sociology. He also integrated sociology with the institutional analysis of science, each informing the other. CRAIG CALHOUN

Guobin Yang argues that Chinese youth engaged in an imaginary revolution from 1966 to 1968, enacting a political mythology that encouraged violence. This dynamic would later turn the Red Guard against the communist government. “Another lens with which to look at how the Cultural Revolution and the damage it caused continue

John G. Gager undermines the myth of the Apostle Paul’s rejection of Judaism, conversion to Christianity, and founding of Christian anti-Judaism.

Tyler Roberts abandons the conceptual opposition between “secular” and “religious” to better understand how human beings engage with their worlds and make meaning.

Determinants of Health

The Demand for Health

An Economic Perspective

A Theoretical and Empirical Investigation

MICHAEL GROSSMAN

MICHAEL GROSSMAN

“A volume of Grossman’s selected works is long overdue. He has been an incredibly prolific researcher, and there is enormous value to having his seminal papers available in a book.” —Joseph Newhouse, Harvard University

This collection of Michael Grossman’s most important papers adds essential background to his work on economic-based determinants of public health. Grossman introduces each section, addressesing the issues covered and the larger stakes of his work. An afterword discusses the effects of his approach to research on health economics and the work others have done to advance and extend his innovative perspective.

Determinants of Health begins with a section on the theoretical underpinnings and empirical results of Grossman’s groundbreaking health-economics model. It follows with sections on the relationship between health and schooling, determinants of infant health, and the economics of unhealthy behaviors. Grossman’s approach has influenced Joseph Newhouse, Jonathan Gruber, Amy Finkelstein, Michael Greenstone, and David Cutler. His clarity on the economic decisions that lead people to make good or poor health choices is immensely valuable to the debate over how we spend on and legislate health. MICHAEL GROSSMAN

is Distinguished Professor of Eco-

nomics at the City University of New York Graduate Center, health economics program director at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and research fellow at IZA.

The Demand for Health synthesized economic and public health knowledge and catalyzed a vastly influential body of health economics literature when first published in 1972. Michael Grossman bases his approach on Gary S. Becker’s household production function model and his theory of investment in human capital. Consumers demand health, which can include illness-free days in a given year or life expectancy, and then produce it through medical-care services, diet, other market goods and services, and time. Grossman also treats health and knowledge as equal parts of the durable stock of human capital. Consumers, therefore, have an incentive to invest in health to increase their earnings in the future. From here, Grossman examines complementarities between health capital and other forms of human capital, the most important of which is knowledge capital earned through schooling and its effect on the efficiency of production. Higher income may not lead to better health outcomes, as wealth enables the consumption of goods and services with adverse health effects. These are some of the major revelations of Grossman’s model, which help as we struggle to understand the links among poverty, education, structural disadvantages, and health. MICHAEL GROSSMAN

—Paul Rose, Ohio State University

As a response to the challenges posed by financial shocks, sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) are remarkably adaptable and have been successfully employed in countries around the world. Yet it can be difficult to determine what constitutes a SWF, let alone to compare two or more that may differ in important ways. The New Frontiers of Sovereign Investment surveys a diverse financial landscape to establish a unifying definition of SWFs and the differences between nascent and long-established SWFs; between the largest funds and the smallest; and between quasi-private and fully transparent public funds. Featuring contributions from such newly minted funds as Alberta’s AIMCo and the Nigerian Sovereign Investment Authority, as well as analysis by scholars at the forefront of sovereign investment, this volume provides timely and much-needed information on these rapidly evolving institutions.

Mainstream economics has offered little guidance on reasonable fairness and the ideal distribution of income. Political theory has much to say about fairness yet relies on qualitative theories that cannot be verified by empirical data. As we address inequality, we need a quantitative, testable theory of fairness for free-market capitalism.

ECONOMICS

The New Frontiers of Sovereign Investment

How Much Inequality Is Fair? synthesizes ideas from economics, political theory, game theory, information theory, statistical mechanics, and systems engineering into a mathematical framework of a fair freemarket society. The key to this framework is the insight that maximizing fairness means maximizing entropy, which helps determine the fairest possible level of inequality in pay. Venkat Venkatasubramanian compares his theory’s predictions to the inequality data of different countries—showing, for instance, that Scandinavia has near-ideal fairness, while the United States is markedly unfair— and discusses the theory’s implications for tax policy, social programs, and executive compensation.

HISTORY

Conservatives Against Capitalism

The Conservative Critique of Capitalism in American Political Thought PETER KOLOZI

Few beliefs seem more fundamental to American conservatism than faith in the free market. Yet throughout American history, major conservative intellectual and political figures have harbored deep misgivings about the unfettered market and its disruption of traditional values, hierarchies, and communities. In Conservatives Against Capitalism, Peter Kolozi traces the history of conservative skepticism about the influence of capitalism on politics, culture, and society.​ Kolozi discusses conservative critiques of capitalism—from its threat to the Southern way of life to its emasculating effects on American society to the dangers of free trade—analyzing the positions of a wideranging set of political thinkers, including John Calhoun, Theodore Roosevelt, Russell Kirk, Irving Kristol, and Pat Buchanan. He examines the ways in which conservative thought went from outright opposition to capitalism to more muted critiques, ultimately reconciling itself to the workings and ethos of the market. By analyzing the unaddressed historical and present-day tensions between capitalism and conservative values, Kolozi shows that figures regarded as iconoclasts belong to a coherent tradition, and he creates a vital new understanding of the American conservative pantheon.

Contemporary Drift

Genre, Historicism, and the Problem of the Present THEODORE MARTIN

Contemporary Drift combines a theoretical focus on the challenge of conceptualizing the present with a historical account of contemporary literature and film. It explores how recent works of fiction depict life in an age of global capitalism, postindustrialism, and climate change. Through new histories of the novel of manners, film noir, the western, detective fiction, and the postapocalyptic novel, Theodore Martin shows how the problem of the contemporary preoccupies a wide range of novelists and filmmakers, including Zadie Smith, Colson Whitehead, Vikram Chandra, China Miéville, Kelly Reichardt, and the Coen brothers. Martin argues that genre writing, with its mix of old and new, brings to light the complicated process by which we make sense of our present and determine what belongs to our time. THEODORE MARTIN

Journalistic Authority

The Chinese Literary Universe, 1945-1965

Legitimating News in the Digital Era

NICOLAI VOLLAND

MATT CARLSON

Socialist Cosmopolitanism offers an innovative interpretation of literature from the Mao era, proposing to read Chinese socialist literature as world literature. China after 1949 engaged with the world beyond its borders in myriad ways and on many levels—political and economic, cultural as well as literary. Far from rejecting the worldliness of earlier eras, Nicolai Volland demonstrates, the young People’s Republic developed its own cosmopolitanism.

When we encounter a news story, why do we accept its version of events? A complicated set of cultural, structural, and technological relationships inform this interaction, and Journalistic Authority provides a relational theory for explaining how journalists attain authority. The book argues that authority is not a thing to be possessed or lost, but a quality of the connections between those laying claim to being an authority and those who assent to it.

Rather than a radical break with the past, Chinese socialist literature should be seen as an integral and important chapter of China’s long search to find a place within world literature. Socialist Cosmopolitanism revisits a range of genres, from poetry and land reform novels to science fiction and children’s literature, and shows how Chinese writers and readers alike saw their own literary production as part of a much larger literary universe. This literary space, reaching from Beijing to Berlin, from Prague to Pyongyang, from Warsaw to Moscow to Hanoi, allowed authors and texts to travel, in the course reinventing the meaning of world literature. Chinese socialist literature is driven by a hugely ambitious—and ultimately doomed—attempt to redraw the literary world map. NICOLAI VOLLAND

Socialist Cosmopolitanism

Matt Carlson examines the practices journalists use to legitimate their work: professional orientation, development of specific news forms, and the personal narratives they circulate to support a privileged social place. He then considers journalists’ relationships with the audiences, sources, technologies, and critics that shape journalistic authority in the contemporary media environment. Carlson argues that journalistic authority is always the product of complex and variable relationships. By creating a schema to account for this complexity, he presents a new model for critiquing journalism while advocating for the norms and practices we want to be authoritative. MATT CARLSON

Rural Poverty in the United States ANN TICKAMYER, JENNIFER WARLICK, AND JENNIFER SHERMAN, EDITORS “This book covers the historical development of rural-poverty research and policy and addresses significant, substantive issues including food insecurity, race, migration, and housing. The breadth is remarkable. No other volume draws the literature together so comprehensively and engagingly.” —Linda Lobao, Ohio State University

What is it about the geography, demography, and history of rural communities that keeps them poor? In a comprehensive analysis that extends from the Civil War to the present, Rural Poverty in the United States looks at access to human and social capital, food security, healthcare and the environment, homelessness, gender roles and relations, racial inequalities, and immigration trends to isolate the underlying causes. Contributors to this volume incorporate approaches from sociology, economics, demography, race and gender studies, public health, education, criminal justice, social welfare, and other social science fields. They take a hard look at programs to alleviate rural poverty and use their failures to suggest alternatives that could improve the well-being of rural Americans. Considering gender, race, and immigration, these essays appreciate the overlooked structural and institutional dimensions of ongoing rural poverty and its larger social consequences. ANN TICKAMYER

Theory for the Working Sociologist FABIO ROJAS

“Theory for the Working Sociologist points the way forward for educators across the field of sociology as it connects classical to contemporary theory and both to essential findings and ongoing research programs. Rojas sets up an arena of debate that is sophisticated and accessible to students.” —Isaac Ariail Reed, University of Virginia

Theory for the Working Sociologist reveals sociology’s hidden playbook. Fabio Rojas shows how sociologists use four different theoretical “moves” when they try to explain the social world: they explain how groups defend their status, how people strategically pursue their goals, how values and institutions support each other, and how people create their social reality. Using famous sociological studies to illustrate these four types of theory, Rojas also teaches students and researchers how to apply these approaches to their interests. FABIO ROJAS

Morals and Markets

The Development of Life Insurance in the United States VIVIANA A. ROTMAN ZELIZER Foreword by Kieran Healy “Firmly placed in a world characterized by a mighty stream of commodification and monetization, [Morals and Markets] shows the strength of the links between markets and social relations, even when the latter belong to the province of intimacy.” —Philippe Steiner, Theory and Society

Life insurance—the promise of an insurer to pay a sum upon a person’s death in exchange for a regular premium—is a bizarre enterprise. How can we monetize human life? First published in 1979, Morals and Markets was a pathbreaking study exploring the development of life insurance in the United States. Viviana A. Rotman Zelizer combined economic history and sociological perspective to advance a novel interpretation of the life insurance industry, and the book pioneered a cultural approach to the analysis of morally controversial markets.

Zelizer begins in the mid-nineteenth century. Life insurance was stigmatized at first, but over time the business became a widely praised arrangement to secure a family’s future. How did life insurance overcome cultural barriers? As Zelizer shows, the evolution of the industry in the United States matched changing attitudes toward death, money, family relations, property, and personal legacy. VIVIANA ZELIZER

On Becoming a Rock Musician H. STITH BENNETT

Foreword by Howard S. Becker “The information captured in these pages remains as relevant today as it was thirty years ago, when rock and roll was still in its nova stage. Bennett’s book is perhaps the only one of its kind to explain the relatively inscrutable process of how one finds one’s own ‘sound,’ and in so doing, he expands the reach of sociology deeper into the meaning of social music. A rare combination of scholarship and street smarts.” —Ben Sidran, host of NPR’s Jazz Alive

In the 1960s and 1970s, becoming a rock musician was different from playing other kinds of music; it was a learned rather than taught skill. In On Becoming a Rock Musician, the sociologist H. Stith Bennett observes what makes a rock musician and then persuades others to take him seriously. The book explores how bands form; the backstage and on-stage reality of playing in a band; how bands promote themselves and interact with an audience and music professionals, such as DJs; and the role of performance.

Global and Aesthetic Perspectives on the History of a Concept

Regimes of Power from the Seventeenth Century to the Present

STEFANOS GEROULANOS, AND NICOLE JERR, EDITORS “A wide-ranging, stimulating, challenging collection.”

“A key book that fills significant gaps in the scholarship of the long conceptual history of the political.”

—Jerrold Seigel, New York University.

—Federico Finchelstein, New School for Social Research

The Scaffolding of Sovereignty reconsiders the schemes on which sovereignty has been based or renewed, the public stages on which it is erected or destroyed, and the ideas on which it rests. Contributors examine intersections of authority, power, theatricality, science, jurisdiction, rulership, human rights, scholarship, religious and popular ideas, and international legal thought that support or undermine instances of sovereign power and its representations.

In An Archaeology of the Political, Elías José Palti argues that the realm of the political is not a natural, transhistorical entity. Instead, the horizon of the political arose during a series of changes that affirmed the power of absolute monarchies in seventeenth-century Europe and was successively reconfigured from this period up to the present.

Phenomena of Power

Authority, Domination, and Violence HEINRICH POPITZ Introduction by Jochen Dreher and Andreas Gottlich Translated by Gianfranco Poggi “Popitz’s book presents the deepest insights into the anthropology of power and violence likely since Hobbes. It is a sociological classic still to be discovered.” —Ulrich Bröckling, Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg

In Phenomena of Power, the foundational theorist Heinrich Popitz treats power as an essential concept of the social sciences. Instead of striving for a power-free society, he argues, mankind should try to delimit power where possible and establish counterpower where necessary. Phenomena of Power delves into the socio-historical manifestations of power and breaks through to its general structures. Philosophically trained, historically informed, and endowed with the power of observation, Popitz uses everyday examples, such as how the passengers on a ship may organize their deckchairs, to illustrate his theory of power. He clearly articulates how the mechanisms of power taking and power stabilization work and how to track them in the social world. “Finally, the phenomenology of power, developed by one of the most creative German social theorists of

Energy Dreams interrogates the ontology of energy, from the first coinage of the word energeia by Aristotle to the practice of fracking and the popularity of “energy drinks.” Its sustained, multidisciplinary investigation builds a theoretical infrastructure for an alternative energy paradigm. Consulting the insights of philosophers, theologians, psychoanalysts, economic and political theorists, and physicists, Michael Marder shows that, instead of being grounded in utopian naïveté, the dreams of another energy—to be procured without devastating everything in existence— derive from the suppressed concept of energy itself.

—David Ingram, University Chicago

In Critical Theory in Critical Times, critical theorists offer new perspectives on recent crises and transformations of the global political and economic order. Essays from Jürgen Habermas, Seyla Benhabib, Cristina Lafont, Rainer Forst, Wendy Brown, Christoph Menke, Nancy Fraser, Rahel Jaeggi, Amy Allen, Penelope Deutscher, and Charles Mills address such topics as international human rights and democratic sovereignty, global neoliberalism, new approaches to the critique of capitalism, critical theory’s Eurocentric heritage, and new directions offered by critical race theory and postcolonial studies. “An extraordinary volume. Its individual essays and overall approach are sure to have a lasting effect on

Posthumous Life launches critical life studies: a mode of inquiry that neither endorses nor dismisses a wave of recent “turns” toward life, matter, vitality, inhumanity, animality, and the real. Following on from a questioning of the nature and limits of life in the natural sciences, essays in this volume question the limits and significance of the human and the humanites in the wake of various redefinitions of what counts as life. They explore the possibility of theorizing life without assuming it to be either a simple substrate or an always-mediated effect of culture and difference. Posthumous Life provides new ways of thinking about animals, plants, humans, difference, sexuality, race, gender, identity, the earth, and the future. “This superb collection haunts in all of the best and

Faithful to Secularism

The Religious Politics of Democracy in Ireland, Senegal, and the Philippines DAVID T. BUCKLEY “A powerfully argued book that makes an original case for a modern of understanding religion and politics. It will become a major work in a fastgrowing field and set a new standard for excellence.” —Daniel Philpott, Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies

In Faithful to Secularism, David T. Buckley argues that political institutions encouraging an active role for public religion can build coalitions across religious and secular boundaries. His concept of “benevolent secularism” describes institutions that combine a basic division of religion and state with extensive room for religious actors in public life. Buckley looks at Ireland, Senegal, and the Philippines, illustrating how countries with an active religious majority can become faithful to secularism. DAVID T. BUCKLEY

Religion, Theory, Critique is an essential tool for learning about theory and method in the study of religion. Leading experts engage with contemporary and classical theories as well as nonwestern scholarship. Unlike other collections, this anthology emphasizes the dynamic relationship between “religion” as an object of study and different methodological approaches and openly addresses the question of the manifold ways in which “religion,” “secular,” and “culture” are imagined within different disciplinary horizons. Each chapter in this volume introduces the topic, identifies key theorists and issues, and respects the pluralistic nature of the scholarship in the field. Altogether, they scrutinize the explicit and implicit assumptions theorists make about religion as an object of analysis. “Religion, Theory, Critique sets a table for scrutinizing the entire field—including our tools and our assumptions—making it ideal for readers keen to do something more than describe self-evidencies.” —Russell McCutcheon, University of Alabama RICHARD KING

Buddhism and Medicine is a singular collection showcasing the generative relationship and mutual influence between these fields across premodern Asia. The anthology combines dozens of English-language translations of premodern Buddhist texts with contextualizing introductions by leading international scholars in Buddhist studies, the history of medicine, and a range of other fields. These sources explore in detail medical topics ranging from the development of fetal anatomy in the womb to nursing, hospice, dietary regimen, magical powers, visualization, and other healing knowledge. Works translated here include meditation guides, popular narratives, ritual manuals, spells texts, monastic disciplinary codes, recipe inscriptions, philosophical treatises, poetry, works by physicians, and other genres. Altogether, these selections and their introductions provide a comprehensive overview of Buddhist healing throughout Asia.

striking contribution to religion and ecology.” —Bronislaw Szerszynski, Lancaster University

In China’s Green Religion, James Miller shows how Daoism orients individuals toward a holistic understanding of religion and nature. He argues for four key, green insights: a vision of nature as a subjective power that informs human life; an anthropological idea of the porous body based on a sense of qi flowing through landscapes and human beings; a tradition of knowing founded on the experience of transformative power in specific landscapes and topographies; and an aesthetic and moral sensibility based on an affective sensitivity to how the world pervades the body and the body pervades the world. Environmentalists should integrate nature and culture more seamlessly, Miller argues, cultivating a compelling vision of how the earth supports human flourishing. “This book is at the cutting edge of Daoist studies.” —Louis Komjathy, University of San Diego JAMES MILLER

In Identifying with Nationality, Will Hanley uses the multinational Mediterranean city of Alexandria to trace a genealogy of the nation and the formation of the modern subject. He shows how ordinary individuals grasped nationality as the best means to access the protections promised by expanding states, creating a problematic system that continues to complicate rules of status, mobility, and residency.

Militarizing the Nation reveals the visible and often invisible efforts by Egypt’s semiautonomous military to hegemonize the country’s politics, economy, and society over the past six decades. Recently, the Egyptian military has fought back two popular uprisings, retained full power, and increased its wealth. From a political-economy approach and a Foucauldian perspective, this book traces the genealogies of the Egyptian military’s rise for those eager to know how such a controversial power maintains control.

The Limits of Westernization

allowing us to better grasp and critique the roots of contemporary Turkish and American narratives about identity and politics.” —Cemil Aydin, author of The Politics of Anti-Westernism in Asia: Visions of World Order in Pan-Islamic and PanAsian Thought

The Limits of Westernization analyzes the complex local uses of “the West” to explain how the United States could become both the best and the worst in the Turkish political imagination. Using both Turkish and English sources, Perin E. Gürel traces how ideas about westernization and America have influenced national history writing and policy making, as well as everyday affects and identities. Foregrounding shifting tropes about and from Turkey—a regional power that continues to dominate American visions for the “modernization” of the Middle East—Gürel also illuminates the transnational development of powerful political tropes, from the “Terrible Turk” to the “Islamic Terrorist.” PERIN E.

of the debate over how to adapt Japan’s defense planning to significant changes in the regional balance of power.” —Sheila Smith, Council on Foreign Relations

After World War II, Japan focused on soft power and economic diplomacy alongside a close alliance with the United States, eschewing a leadership role in regional and global security. Since the end of the Cold War, Japan’s military capabilities have resurged. Andrew L. Oros shows how a gradual awakening to new security challenges has culminated in a multifaceted “security renaissance” in Japan. “Oros’s narrative provides alternative insights and a wealth of valuable details and assessments.” —Dennis Blair, president and CEO, Sasakawa Peace Foundation USA ANDREW L. OROS

Expectation, Perception, and the Shaping of Memory

Japanese memories of World War II exert a powerful influence over the nation’s society and culture. Concentrating on the years immediately before and after the war (1937 to 1952), Michael Lucken explores in The Japanese and the War how WWII manifested in the literature, art, film, clothing, and education reform of the time, creating an idea of Japanese identity that still resonates in everything from soap operas to the response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Emphasizing Japanese-language sources, Lucken sets out to capture the many ways people engage with war, but particularly the rich range of encounters Japan experienced, which, Lucken argues, the Japanese state has yet to fully confront, leading to a range of tensions at home and abroad.

By 1816, Japan had recovered from the famines of the 1780s and moved beyond the political reforms of the 1790s. The country seemed headed for a new period of growth. Yet, in that year, an anonymous samurai produced a scathing critique of Edo society. Writing as Buyō Inshi, he expressed a profound despair with the state of the realm. This abridged edition streamlines this translation for classroom use. It also retains the introductory essay that situates the work within Edo society and history. MARK TEEUWEN

The Songs of Chu

An Ancient Anthology of Works by Qu Yuan and Others GOPAL SUKHU, EDITOR AND TRANSLATOR

Sources show Qu Yuan (?340–278 BCE) was the first person in China to become famous for his poetry, so famous in fact that the Chinese celebrate his life with a national holiday called Poet’s Day, or the Dragon Boat Festival. His work, which forms the core of the The Songs of Chu, the second oldest anthology of Chinese poetry, derives its imagery from shamanistic ritual. Its shaman hymns are among the most beautiful and mysterious liturigical works in the world. The religious milieu responsible for their imagery supplies the backdrop for his most famous work, Li sao, which translates shamanic longing for a spirit lover into the yearning for an ideal king that is central to the ancient philosophies of China. Qu Yuan was as important to the development of Chinese literature as Homer was to the development of Western literature. This translation attempts to replicate what the work might have meant to those for whom it was originally intended, rather than settle for what it was made to mean by those who inherited it. It accounts for the new view of the state of Chu that recent discoveries have inspired. GOPAL SUKHU

A Ch’ae Manshik Reader CH’AE MANSHIK Translated and edited by Bruce Fulton and Ju-Chan Fulton

Sunset: A Ch’ae Manshik Reader is the first English-language anthology of works in a variety of genres—novella, short fiction, conte, anecdotal essay, travel writing, children’s essay, one-act play, three-act play, and roundtable discussion—by an individual Korean writer. Ch’ae Manshik is one of the most accomplished writers of modern Korea yet is underrepresented in English translation because of the challenges posed by his distinctive voice and colloquial style.

This anthology moves beyond the usual “representative-works” reception of Korean authors, both in Korea and abroad. It draws on Manshik’s ten-volume Complete Works to offer a more well-rounded selection of writing by one of modern Korea’s most innovative and memorable voices. This edition also provides a comprehensive introduction outlining the limitations of existing approaches to Manshik. It contextualizes the anthology’s contents both in terms of the author’s career and the rich Korean tradition of intertextuality and intermediality that he reflects from the country’s earliest times to the new millennium. CH’AE MANSHIK

(1902–1950) published his first story in

1924, at the age of twenty-two, and went on to publish many other works, in a variety of genres, until his death in 1950.

Taming the Wild Horse

An Annotated Translation and Study of the Daoist Horse Taming Pictures LOUIS KOMJATHY “Komjathy completes a conversation we have only heard half of for a long time.” —Suzanne Cahill, University of California, San Diego

In thirteenth-century China, a Daoist monk named Gao Daokuan (1195-1277) composed a series of illustrated poems and accompanying verse commentary known as the Daoist Horse Taming Pictures. In this annotated translation and study, Louis Komjathy argues that this virtually unknown text offers unique insights into the transformative effects of Daoist contemplative practice. Taming the Wild Horse examines Gao’s illustrated poems in terms of monasticism and contemplative practice, as well as the multivalent meaning of the “horse” in traditional Chinese culture and the consequences for both human and nonhuman animals.

The Horse Taming Pictures consist of twelve poems that develop the metaphor of a “wild” or “untamed” horse to represent ordinary consciousness, which must be reined in and harnessed through sustained self-cultivation, especially meditation. These compositions describe stages on the Daoist contemplative path. Komjathy encourages reflection on contemplative practice in general and Daoist meditation in particular, which leads to a transpersonal way of perceiving and being. LOUIS KOMJATHY

Ghalib

Selected Poems and Letters MIRZA ASADULLAH KHAN GHALIB Translated by Frances W. Pritchett and Owen T. A. Cornwall “Ghalib is the first ample and compact introduction to the Urdu oeuvre of the last great ‘Mughal’ poet of India. The translators have provided all that a reader might need to get closer to the poet and the man.” —C. M. Naim, University of Chicago

Ghalib’s poems, especially his ghazals, remain beloved throughout South Asia for their arresting intelligence and charming wit. His letters—informal, humorous, and deeply personal—provide a glimpse into a colorful character. These careful translations allow readers with little or no knowledge of Urdu to appreciate the wide range of his poetry. The book includes whole ghazals, poems in other genres, and letters. The book features a glossary, the Urdu text of the original poetry, and an appendix with a translation of Ghalib’s commentary on his own verses. MIRZA ASADULLAH KHAN GHALIB

“Fischer demonstrates and celebrates here— intellectually and passionately—a topic that she owns: the architectural and design world of cinematic art nouveau.” —Timothy Corrigan, coeditor of Essays on the Essay Film

Art nouveau thrived from the late 1890s through the First World War. The international design movement reveled in curvilinear forms and both playful and macabre visions and had a deep impact on cinematic art direction, costuming, gender representation, genre, and theme. In Cinema by Design, Lucy Fischer traces art nouveau’s long history in films from various decades and global locales, appreciating the movement’s enduring avant-garde aesthetics and dynamic ideology. LUCY FISCHER

After Uniqueness traces the ambivalence of reproducibility through the intersecting histories of experimental cinema and the moving image in art, examining how artists, filmmakers, and theorists have found in the copy a utopian promise, a dangerous inauthenticity—or both at once. From the sale of film in limited editions on the art market to the downloading of bootlegs, from the singularity of live cinema to video art broadcast on television, Erika Balsom investigates how the reproducibility of the moving image has been embraced, rejected, and negotiated by major figures, including Stan Brakhage, Leo Castelli, and Gregory Markopoulos. Through a comparative analysis of selected distribution models and key case studies, she also demonstrates how the question of image circulation is central to the history of film and video art.

FILM STUDIES

Words on Screen MICHEL CHION

Edited and translated by Claudia Gorbman “A radical understanding of cinema. By concentrating on the written word in a variety of films, Chion turns what in the past has always been no more than a passing concern into a full-fledged reading strategy, applicable to films of all periods and types.” —Rick Altman, author of Silent Film Sound

In Words on Screen, Chion analyzes titles, credits, and intertitles, but also less obvious forms of writing that appear on screen, from the tear-stained letter in a character’s hand to reversed writing seen in mirrors. He shows how words can generate narrative, take on symbolic dimensions, and bear every possible relation to cinematic space. “Chion compiles an inventory of textual effects and shows us just how strange, powerful, and surprising words on screen can be.” —Steven Shaviro, Wayne State University MICHEL CHION

Essays on the Essay Film NORA M. ALTER AND

TIMOTHY CORRIGAN, EDITORS

Characteristics of the essay film include the blending of fact and fiction, the mixing of art- and documentary-film styles, the foregrounding of subjective points of view, a concentration on public life, a tension between acoustic and visual discourses, and a dialogic encounter with audiences. This anthology features critical articulations of the form as it evolved through the 1950s and 1960s, key contemporary scholarly essays, and a selection of writings by essay filmmakers. It features texts on the foundations of the essay film by such writers as Hans Richter and André Bazin, contemporary positions by Phillip Lopate and Michael Renov, and original essays by filmmakers including Laura Mulvey and Isaac Julien.

FILM STUDIES

Mythopoetic Cinema

On the Ruins of European Identity KRISS RAVETTO-BIAGIOLI

In Mythpoetic Cinema, Kriss Ravetto-Biagioli explores how contemporary European filmmakers treat mythopoetics as a critical practice that questions the constant need to provide new identities, a new Europe, and with it a new European cinema after the fall of the Soviet Union. Mythopoetic cinema questions the perpetual branding of movements, ideas, and individuals. Examining the work of Jean-Luc Godard, Alexander Sokurov, Marina Abramović, and Theodoros Angelopoulos, Ravetto-Biagioli argues that these disparate artists provide a critical reflection on what constitutes Europe in the age of neoliberalism. Their films reflect not only the violence of recent years but also help question dominant models of nation building that result in the general failure to respond ethically to rising ethnocentrism. In close readings of such films as Sokurov’s Russian Ark (2002) and Godard’s Notre Musique (2004), Ravetto-Biagioli demonstrates the ways in which these filmmakers engage and evaluate the recent reconceptualization of Europe’s borders, mythic figures, and identity paradoxes. Her work not only analyzes how these filmmakers thematically treat the idea of Europe but also how their work questions the ability of the moving image to challenge conventional ways of understanding history.

Film and the Natural Environment

Stories and Atmospheres ADAM O’BRIEN

This volume demonstrates how an awareness of natural features and dynamics can enhance our understanding of three key film-studies topics: narrative, genre, and national cinema. It takes examples from a broad historical and geographical spectrum, including Sunrise (1927), A River Called Titas (1973), and Profound Desires of the Gods (1968). Film and the Natural Environment argues that the nonhuman world can be understood not just as a theme but as a creative resource available to all filmmakers. It invites readers to consider some of the strengths and weaknesses of cinema as the communicator of environmental phenomena and collates ideas and passages from a range of critics and theorists who have contributed to our understanding of moving images and the natural world.

Sweet and Lowdown

The Cinema of Wes Anderson

LLOYD MICHAELS

WHITNEY CROTHERS DILLEY

Over a career that has spanned more than six decades, Woody Allen has explored the emotion of regret as a response to the existentialist dilemma of not being someone else. Tracing this theme from his stand-up comedy routines and apprentice work through such classics as Annie Hall (1977), Manhattan (1979), The Purple Rose of Cairo (1985), Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), and Bullets Over Broadway (1994), as well as Another Woman (1988), Sweet and Lowdown (1999), and Cassandra’s Dream (2007), this volume sees the shallowness of the protagonists’ regret—their lack of deeply felt, sustained remorse—as defining Allen’s view of human experience. Drawing on insights from philosophy, theology, psychology, and literature, the book features extended analyses of Allen’s relationship films, murder tetralogy, self-reflexive films, and nostalgic movies.

Wes Anderson makes films such as Rushmore (1998) and The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) in a style so distinctive that his films are often recognizable from a single frame. Through the travelogue The Darjeeling Limited (2007) and the stop-motion animation of Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009), his films examine issues of gender, race, and class through dysfunctional family dynamics, with particular focus on masculinity and male bonding. Anderson’s auteur status is enriched by his fascination with Truffaut and the French New Wave, as well as his authorship of his screenplays, drawing on influences as diverse as Mark Twain, J. D. Salinger, Roald Dahl, and Stefan Zweig. This book explores the filmic and literary influences that have helped make Anderson a major voice in twenty-first-century “indie” film culture.

Stranger Than Paradise

The Holy Mountain

A low-budget breakout film that wowed critics and audiences on its initial release, Stranger Than Paradise (1984) would prove to be a seminal film in the new American independent-cinema movement and established its director, Jim Jarmusch, as a hip, cult auteur. Taking inspiration from 1960s underground filmmaking, international art cinema, genre cinema, and punk culture, Jarmusch’s film provides a bridge between midnight movie features and a new mode of quirky, offbeat independent filmmaking. This book probes the film’s production history, initial reception, aesthetics, and legacy to better understand its place within the cult film canon. The volume explores a number of threads that fed into the film—including New York downtown culture of the early 1980s and Jarmusch’s involvement in music— and reflects on how the film’s status has developed alongside Jarmusch’s subsequent output and reputation.

Alejandro Jodorowsky’s El Topo (1970) helped inaugurate the midnight movie phenomenon. Its success spawned The Holy Mountain (1973), through interventions by John Lennon and Allen Klein. After a scandalous release and a sixteen-month midnight career, The Holy Mountain was relegated to the underground world of fan bootlegs for more than thirty years until its limited restored release in 2007.

This volume reveals how The Holy Mountain, a poetic, hilarious, and anarchist cult film by an international auteur anchored in post1968 critiques, is at once an archaeological capsule of the counterculture movement, a timely subversion of mystical tenets, and one of the most mysterious films in the history of world cinema.

The Children’s Film

Trash Cinema

Genre, Nation, and Narrative

The Lure of the Low

NOEL BROWN

GUY BAREFOOT

This book examines the recurrent themes and ideologies and common narrative and stylistic principles of children’s film. Opening with a thorough consideration of how the genre may be defined, the volume explores how children’s cinema has developed across a broad historical and geographic span, with reference to films from the United States, Britain, France, Denmark, Russia, India, and China. Analyzing changes and continuities in the conception of children’s film, the book distinguishes between commercial productions intended to entertain and noncommercial films made to educate and give moral and behavioral instruction. It outlines a history of children’s cinema, exploring key critical issues and providing case studies of major children’s films from around the world.

Trash Cinema explores the lower reaches of cinema and its paradoxical appeal. It looks at films from the B-movies of the 1930s to the mockbusters of today, and from the New York underground to the genre variations of Turkey’s Yeşilçam studios (and their YouTube afterlife). Critically examining the reasons for studying, denigrating, or celebrating the detritus of film history, the book also considers the place of a trash aesthetic within and beyond the 1960s American avant-garde and looks at the cult of trash in the fanzines of the 1980s. It draws on debates about cult, paracinema, and camp, arguing that trash cinema brings with it a particular history that includes the ordinary and the strange. Trash Cinema focuses on American cinema history while also addressing Eurotrash reception and the related field of garbology, understanding trash cinema as a distinct yet fluid category.

Narrative in Social Work Practice features first-person accounts from social workers who have successfully integrated narrative theory and approaches into their practice. Essays showcase the flexibility and appeal of narrative methods and demonstrates how they can be empowering and fulfilling for clients and social workers alike. It also highlights how the differential use of narrative techniques can fulfill the required core competencies of the social work profession in creative and surprising ways.

Drawing on studies of Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Colombia, Uganda, Palestine, Somalia, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Sudan, and South Sudan, this volume captures a range of perspectives on the realities of armed conflict for children. Including children who are victims of, participants in, and witnesses to armed conflict, the contributors highlight methodologies that directly involve war-affected children in the research process and seek to generate more effective policies and intervention strategies.

SCIENCE

Modern Humans

Their African Origin and Global Dispersal JOHN F. HOFFECKER

The modern human phase marks the appearance of anatomically modern people (Homo sapiens) in Africa less than a quarter of a million years ago and their subsequent spread throughout the world. Most of the features that render living human beings unique among all forms of life evolved or developed with Homo sapiens, and in Modern Humans, John F. Hoffecker argues that humans represent a “major transition” in evolution with respect to the storage, transmission, and translation of information, as well as a quantum leap in living-system complexity.

Modern Humans synthesizes data from genetics, the human fossil record, and archaeology. The book begins by placing humans into the broad context of the evolution of life, emphasizing the role of genetic and nongenetic forms of information in living systems, and how changes in information are tied to “major transitions” in evolution. For more than a hundred thousand years, a diverse “near modern” human population occupied the African continent and expanded briefly into the adjoining Arabian Peninsula and Levant. The immediate ancestors of all living maternal and paternal lineages possibly emerged from within this population. Later chapters recount their expansion into southern Asia and Australia, northern Eurasia and Beringia, and throughout the Americas. JOHN F. HOFFECKER

Environmental Success Stories

Solving Major Ecological Problems and Confronting Climate Change FRANK M. DUNNIVANT With a chapter by Kari Norgaard

Environmental Success Stories shares the unified strategies that have brought about cleaner water and sanitation in the United States and in the global South; significantly reduced human exposure to toxic metals such as lead and mercury; turned society away form endocrine-disrupting pesticides, such as DDT and PCBs and other chemicals; and reduced the occurrence of acid rain and the use of ozone-depleting chemicals. In addition to presenting the basic science underlying these issues, Environmental Success Stories also names the political actors, regulators, and community leaders who enacted truly effective environmental legislation and engendered innovations in environmental friendly technologies.

The Archival Exhibition

A Decade of Research at the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery, 2006–2016 MARK WASIUTA

Architecture is a field organized by documents produced within distinct historical, mediatic, and disciplinary registers. Whether in the mode of drawing, design, fabrication, computation, photography, or video, architectural documents are defined by different discursive and institutional exigencies. Yet architectural archives are hardly stable or uniform. Rather, archives are active processes and systems of coordination, woven into architecture’s media, histories, and communicative effects.

Over the past decade, the Arthur Ross Architecture Gallery at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation has conducted a sustained experiment in archival exhibitions. Fueled by the recent historicization and theorization of exhibition practices, the gallery has offered a critical alternative to the conventional role of architectural school galleries and exhibitions at major museums and architecture associations. Through a commitment to researching underexamined projects from the postwar period, the Ross Gallery has forged an identity based on the uncovering and display of a wide range of documents that expand and test the contours of architectural practice.

This book collects text and documents from fourteen exhibitions at the Ross Gallery. Commentaries by architects, artists, historians, theorists, and curators examine each exhibition, survey the work of the gallery, and foreground the shifting status of architectural exhibitions more broadly.

Trace Elements

BENJAMIN ARANDA AND CHRIS LASCH

“Trace elements” are minerals that exist in minute quantities necessary for the growth and development of cells. Exposure to excessive quantities is toxic, but without them our bodies would atrophy. They are the crystalline structures that support life. Over the past decade, the Aranda\Lasch studio has focused obsessively on these structures as a form of both organization and expression for architecture. Their projects explore the interplay between rulebased systems and human ritual. In scale, this work lies somewhere between furniture and building. What is built, drawn, and projected gives human measure to procedural thinking.

Published on the occasion of the studio’s exhibition “Meeting the Clouds Halfway” at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Tucson, Trace Elements documents a wide-ranging yet sharply focused body of work from an office dedicated to intellectual exploration and the honing of a distinct design sensibility.

Analysing Corruption

An Introduction DAN HOUGH

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

This textbook introduces corruption analysis and the challenges facing its researchers. It opens with the question of what corruption is and explores various definitions, from those that prioritize the law to those that begin with notions of public interest or the role of elites in shaping acceptable practices. The book examines the problems of measurement via perceptions, experience, and proxies, and the methodologies underpinning standard and newer indices. The second part of the text focuses on the key drivers of corrupt practice and explores how rational choice (self-interest) arguments, behavioral approaches, and context-driven analysis are used to understand the causes of corruption. The conclusion considers successes in the fight against corruption, including international conventions and the work of the IMF and World Bank, national policy initiatives, the so-called anti-corruption industry, and the efforts of citizen activists.

The Federal Reserve and Its Founders

Wall Street’s Control of U.S. Currency RICHARD A. NACLERIO

The U.S. Federal Reserve has played a key role in the world economy for one hundred years. Its structure is unique among the central banking systems. Using extensive archival sources, Richard A. Naclerio investigates the highly secretive events surrounding the Fed’s creation and the bankers, financiers,​and economists who shaped both its organization and global involvement. In particular, Naclerio examines the motivations of the seven men who met in secret on Jekyll Island, Georgia, to create the first draft of the Federal Reserve Act and the banking and business ties and shared ideologies that bound them together. Naclerio makes a significant contribution to economic and financial history and sheds new light on the making of one of the world’s most important financial institutions, including how it came to have such an outsized national and international influence.

An Economic History of Europe Since 1700

The Political Economy of Brexit

VERA ZAMAGNI

EDITORS

Vera Zamagni provides a new economic history of Europe from industrialization through the financial crisis of 2007/2008 and its aftermath. She begins with an outline of the economic landscape of the late Middle Ages and then explores the process of European industrialization. She looks at the relative decline of the United Kingdom and the rise of the United States and Japanese economies toward the end of the nineteenth century and the advent of global finance. Zamagni assesses the economic impact of the world wars and revolution and analyzes European reconstruction and integration against the decline of Russia and the growth of the Asian economies. Her book shows how the social and economic institutions and values of European civilization catalyzed economic progress. That these same structures are now threatened makes this history particularly timely.

The essays in this collection are an important first step in assessing the challenges that Brexit poses for the UK and wider EU economy. What will be the impact on the already weak manufacturing industries? How will the withdrawal of EU funding for regional development effect economic development outside of London and the southeast? What are the consequences for wages and labor regulations? How will relations among EU neighbors develop? What of the Scottish question? How will the city, the engine of UK growth over the past decade, maintain its position as Europe’s financial center? How will the EU fare without its second largest economy within the Union? This book is welcome reading for anyone in search of some rigor and clarity amid the hyperbole of recent months.

The Living Wage

DONALD HIRSCH AND

Behavioural Economics GRAHAM MALLARD

LAURA VALADEZ-MARTINEZ

The “living wage” provides workers with enough income to live at some level considered adequate. Yet in practice the term has become blurred with the “minimum wage,” and in its implementation, it has lacked a consistent meaning.

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

This primer traces the origins of the living wage and its rise as an economic instrument with a social objective. It examines its impact on labor markets and wage levels, explores how it has been applied, and assesses whether it is an effective measure for raising living standards. Drawing on case studies from France, the Netherlands, the United States, and the United Kingdom, The Living Wage offers a broad-ranging analysis of the debates, policy developments, and limitations of wage floors in developed economies. DONALD HIRSCH

is professor of social policy and

director of the Centre for Research in Social Policy at Loughborough University. LAURA VALADEZ-MARTINEZ

The rise of behavioral approaches in economics has been one of most significant developments in recent years. Economists now incorporate psychological insights into their study of individual behaviors, such as cognitive and emotional biases, to better grasp economic decision making. This book explains the methodology of behavioral economics to beginners, opening with the evolution of the field from Adam Smith’s moral sentiments to the work of Herbert Simon, Daniel Kahneman, and Richard Thaler. It then describes how behavioral economics has advanced our understanding of fairness, reciprocity, inequality aversion, and the mental processes involved in decision making. The text explores individual decision making within social and economic groups, including financial practitioners, and the ways in which behavioral economics has altered the decisions people make today.

THE ECONOMICS OF BIG BUSINESS

AG E N DA P U B L I S H I N G

The Economics of Airlines

The Economics of Arms

Global airline revenues have doubled over the past ten years, yet profit margins remain razor thin. This book explores the economic realities of the airline industry and how demand and cost structure, coupled with a complex regulatory regime, produces today’s industry. Part 1 introduces the aviation sector and the airline industry, showing how the theories of consumer choice and the firm apply to airline markets. Part 2 examines market concentration, the intensity of competition among airlines, and their competitive strategies in the United States and the EU. It examines the emergence of low-cost carriers, the future of the three global alliances, and consolidation. Part 3 evaluates the external effects of aviation, both negative (pollution, congestion, and delays) and positive (agglomeration and productivity improvement in various economic sectors). The conclusion explores the economics of airports, air-traffic control, and aircraft manufacturing and jet engines.

It is estimated that today some 2.7 percent of the world’s GDP ($1.5 trillion) is spent on arms. This book explores the business behind these breathtaking figures and explains how the arms industry makes its money. With case studies in Brazil, the Koreas, Japan, Russia, Europe, the United States, and the United Kingdom, the book begins by defining the industry, explaining why the sector is important, and outlining its prime contractors and key supply chains. It describes cost categories (from R&D to maintenance), the role of technical innovation, and the sector’s dependence on government buying power. Domestic procurement is considered against sales to foreign governments and incidents of bribery and corruption. The militaryindustrial-political complex is unpacked, and national defense agencies, the armed forces, producer groups, political agents (voters, political parties, and budget-maximizing bureaucracies) are scrutinized.

The Money Laundering Market Regulating the Criminal Economy KILLIAN J. MCCARTHY, EDITOR

The Policy Test

Five Parameters for Evaluating Public Policy PHIL HUTCHINSON

An estimated $3.5 trillion passes through the market for money laundering annually, representing 8 percent of the world’s illegal income. By “cleaning” the ill-gotten gains of the criminal economy, money launderers keep crime profitable and illegal activities, including terrorist operations and sex trafficking, well funded. Most countries now have anti-money-laundering measures, but their implementation in a globalized world is patchy, and incentives to tackle this illegal activity vary widely from one location to another. This volume takes an integrated look at money laundering, considering the laws, launderers, and new economics of money laundering in the digital age. KILLIAN J. MCCARTHY

On what basis do we make policy decisions? And how should we assess the ones that have been made? In The Policy Test, the philosopher Phil Hutchinson argues that we need to appraise policies within a much wider evaluative framework, one that encourages deeper reflection of the issues. He proposes five fundamental parameters: precaution, evidence, political economy, asymmetry, and framing. Considering policy areas from GMOs to antibiotics, he asks whether the precautionary principle has been invoked, what counts as evidence, what are the political-economic consequences, who stands to benefit or suffer, and whether the right questions have been asked. In so doing, Hutchinson offers new insights into the policies themselves, greater clarity into the issues involved, and a new set of tools for advocating or critiquing policy. PHIL HUTCHINSON

A New Strategy for the United States C. FRED BERGSTEN AND JOSEPH E. GAGNON

Conflicts over currency valuations are a recurrent feature of the modern global economy. To strengthen their international competitiveness, many countries resort to buying foreign currencies to make their exports cheaper and their imports more expensive. How damaging is the practice of currency manipulation—and how extensive is the problem? This book by C. Fred Bergsten and Joseph E. Gagnon—two leading experts on trade, investment, and the effects of currency manipulation—traces the history, causes, and effects of currency manipulation and analyzes a range of policy responses that the United States can adopt.

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

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.

What kind of movement is dance, and what is it to dance in India? This book recognizes the diversity of dance in India and the institutional circumstances through which performances emerge. Essayists include performers, theorists, historians, and cultural critics. Choreographic portraits reiterate the necessity of locally situated viewers and commentators. Themes range from questions of periodization to the temporal, the archive, the proximate body and its potentialities, spaces and audiences, and policy interventions on behalf of performance.

Written in the 1820s, Sairul-Manazil is believed to be the first account of Delhi’s monuments. Apart from mosques, temples, shrines, and tombs, the list includes wells, gardens, houses, shops, and graves. Descriptions of the city’s various localities, the people who lived and worked there at the time, social activities and fairs, and historical anecdotes connected with places and people enliven what might otherwise be a dry document. This edition was translated from the Urdu by the late Nausheen Jaffery and includes vivid maps and sketches.

Urbanization in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, poses challenges to urban living conditions. Construction and settling processes have largely remained incremental, although in 2005 a new national urban policy was introduced. Nadine Appelhans focuses on the relation of statutory planning standards to practices of everyday urbanization. The findings from Bahir Dar suggest that socioeconomic segregation has continued and that there is a need for policy changes. This study argues that urban development should be locally grounded, differentiated, and inclusive, based on a typology of neighborhoods and neighborhood specificities.

The Brazilian constitution provides a remarkable set of social rights, including the right to housing. Despite this fact, struggles for decent living conditions have become key issues in the daily lives of many Brazilians. As they contest differentiated access to housing, social movements occupy empty buildings in Brazilian cities to challenge historically rooted and exclusionary urban politics. Exploring the agency of these occupants, Bea Wittger draws attention to the important role of female actors within such buildings. Through oral histories of residents of two squats in Rio de Janeiro, this book delivers insight “from below” into citizenship and gender.

Trouble on the Far Right

National Strategies and Local Practices Challenging Europe MAIK FIELITZ AND LAURA LOTTE LALOIRE, EDITORS

Looking at contemporary practices and strategies of far-right actors, this volume explores the rightward shift of European publics and politics. It analyzes changing mobilization patterns and their local, national, and transnational effects. International experts including Tamir Bar-On (Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education), Liz Fekete (Institute of Race Relations), Matthew Kott (Uppsala University), and Graham Macklin (Teesside University) scrutinize new forms of coalition building and transnationalization tendencies as aspects of diversified far-right politics in Europe.

Right-wing-motivated attacks in Europe target religious minorities, such as Muslims and Jews; ethnic minorities, such as Roma; participants in LGBTQ parades; civil society activists; and representatives of the political order. At the same time, a xenophobic discourse, especially against migrants and refugees, has gained momentum among European publics, further blurring the line between far-right agitation and mainstream politics. Far-right political parties in Austria, France, and Slovakia have achieved electoral successes. Organizations in Germany and Italy have mobilized thousands of people. In Finland and Great Britain, vigilante and terrorist groups are waging an armed struggle. “Illiberal models of democracy” in Poland and Hungary have transformed entire political systems.

Occupy Wall Street, the Commons, and other social experiments showcase the invention and testing of new collectivities. Gesa Ziemer argues that the reinterpretation of old forms of joint action can play an essential role in this process. By looking at complicities in art, science, and the economy, Ziemer dissects ongoing collectivization. Individuals act jointly in an intensely affective way—albeit only temporarily, bindingly in common—but still individually and inventively— and at the same time in a goal-oriented manner. GESA ZIEMER

Crisis and Re-orientation in the British and the American Left SEBASTIAN BERG

Left-wing British and American intellectuals had long repudiated the Soviet regime, so why did the collapse of the Eastern Bloc destabilize their identities and political allegiances? What happened to a collective project that sought to formulate a vision different from “actually existing socialism” and social democracy? Intellectual Radicalism After 1989 focuses on generational networks and political journals to portray a Left deeply troubled by the triumph of unfettered capitalism. SEBASTIAN BERG

What is nostalgia in television? How does a text trigger nostalgic emotions? And how are nostalgic series received by different audiences? Stefanie Armbruster analyzes nostalgia in reruns, remakes, and period dramas from Knight Rider to Mad Men. Focus group discussions with German and Spanish viewers provide new insight into the reception of these shows. This interdisciplinary, in-depth book helps clarify the interrelation of nostalgic texts and nostalgic reception, exploring an omnipresent part of the current television landscape.

Michael Rodegang Drescher analyzes national mythologies in American and German literature. He focuses on processes of mythological resignification, a literary phenomenon carrying significant implications for questions of identity, democracy, and nationalism in Europe and America. Precise narratological analyses are paired with detailed, transnational readings of Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, Gutzkow’s Wally die Zweiflerin, Brown’s Clotel, and Heine’s Deutschland. Ein Wintermärchen. The text marries literature, mythology, and politics and contributes to the study of American and German literature at large. MICHAEL RODEGANG DRESCHER

In a positive departure from modernism, the work of the art critic and urbanist Ludwig Hilberseimer offers schemata toward the design for the city: its mereological composition. The resonance of parts unfolds to an alternative of a purely contrasting equation of form and content. It reminds us that when the ground (logos) of the city is defined by its parts (meros), or its architecture, the city in turn always also is part of the architecture as its desire. The Mereological City introduces a mereological methodology and contributes to an ongoing discussion about an ecological form of urban design. DANIEL KÖHLER

European Mobility in Times of Crisis

The New Context of European South-North Migration DOMÍNGUEZ-MUJICA, EDITORS

The global economic and financial crisis has had a severe impact on southern European economies and has stimulated growing numbers of young migrants heading north, nurturing the fear of brain drain back home. This volume compiles recent research on European south-north migration, addressing migration processes and practices, the management of migration by institutions, and relevant public debates. It thereby delivers an important contribution to the understanding of the durability and context of recent European south-north migration and their consequences for European economies, politics, and societies.

The Moral Geography of Dams, Pastures and Holy Sites JEANNE FÉAUX DE LA CROIX

Jeanne Féaux de la Croix maps three iconic places as part of Central Asians’ “moral geographies” and examines their role in navigating socialist, neoliberal, and neo-Islamic life models. Dams provide most of Kyrgyzstan’s electricity but are also at the heart of regional water disputes that threaten an already shrinking Aral Sea. Mountain pastures cover much of Central Asia’s heartland and offer a livelihood and refuge, even to urban citizens. Pilgrimage sites have recovered from official Soviet oblivion and act as cherished scenes of decision making. Examining how iconic places, work, and well-being mesh together, this book moves debates about post-Soviet memory, space, and property onto fresh terrain. JEANNE FÉAUX DE LA CROIX

is a social anthropologist

based at Tübingen University, Germany. She directs several projects on the environment in Central Asia.

EDITORS

The Swedish documentary My Heart of Darkness (2011) tells the story of a South African paratrooper returning to Angola. Facing former enemies, he tries to regain mental health and find reconciliation. The film is a stepping-stone for the contributors to this volume. They examine different facets like memory discourse, genre aspects, the use of music, and authentification processes. Other essays discuss the historical context of the Angolan Civil War and the aftermath of this conflict in the cultural sphere as well as other cinematic representations of the conflict. STEFFI HOBUSS

Markus Nehl focuses on black authors who, from a twenty-first-century perspective, revisit slavery in the United States, Ghana, South Africa, Canada, and Jamaica. Nehl’s provocative readings of Toni Morrison’s A Mercy, Saidiya Hartman’s Lose Your Mother, Yvette Christiansë’s Unconfessed, Lawrence Hill’s The Book of Negroes, and Marlon James’s The Book of Night Women delineate how these texts engage in a fruitful dialogue with African diaspora theory on the complex relation between the local and transnational and the enduring effects of slavery. Reflecting on the ethics of narration, this study attends to the risks of representing antiblack violence and to the intricacies involved in (re-)appropriating slavery’s archive. MARKUS NEHL

Migration affects migrants’ families and family relations in complex and diverse ways. Family fragmentation lasting for years or even decades and access to citizenship and welfare-state resources change concepts of parenting and care as well as gender relations. In this volume, authors from Europe, the MENA region, and North America discuss the diversity and dynamics of migrant families, including individual and collective challenges, strategies, and agencies.

All around the world and throughout history resistance has played an important part—and still does. Some raise it to cause change. Some dare not speak of it. Some try to smother it to keep the status quo. The contributions to this volume explore phenomena of resistance in a range of historical and contemporary environments. In so doing, they not only contribute to shaping a comparative view on subjects, representations, and contexts of resistance, but also open up a theoretical dialogue on terms and concepts of resistance both in and across different disciplines.

OLIVER TAPPE, AND MICHAEL ZEUSKE,

A one-of-a-kind story informs this book’s ethnography: Thomas Stodulka comes of age together with his protagonists. Stodulka based his study on fieldwork he conducted in the city of Yogyakarta, Indonesia, between 2011 and 2015. He investigates “street children’s” remarkable social and emotional competences, rather than resort to a pathosridden discourse of compassion and despair. His ethnography’s multivocal narrative couples vivid ethnographic case studies and life stories with current theories on emotion, empathy, structural violence, and social interaction within the context of marginality, stigma, and chronic illness.

Forms of indentured labor met global capitalism’s need for cheap, disposable labor. The famous “coolie trade”—mainly Asian laborers transferred to colonial Africa, the Caribbean, and the Americas, as well as to the Arab world—is one of the largest migration movements in global history. Indentured contract workers are perhaps the most revealing example of bonded labor between the poles of chattel slavery and “free” wage labor. This interdisciplinary volume addresses historically and regionally specific cases of unfree labor relations from the eighteenth century to the present day. THE EDITORS

ANDRÉA BELLIGER AND

This volume looks at spaces such as reservations, model villages, and collective towns as spatial and disciplinary techniques—implemented to disempower and radically alter the behavior of people who were perceived as ill-suited to fit into the hegemonic concept of “the nation” from the nineteenth century onwards. Comparing examples from the Americas, Australia, Eastern Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Central Asia, this book considers the acts and legitimizing narratives of the powerful alongside the agency of the subaltern, who are often misrepresented as passive victims of violent assimilation strategies.

What are organizations? Where do they come from? How are they transformed and adapted to new situations? In the digital age and in global society, traditional theories of the organization can no longer answer these questions. Based on actor-network theory, this book sees organizations as flexible, open networks in which both human and nonhuman actors enter into socio-technical assemblies by negotiating and renegotiating programs of action. Organizations are not macro social structures or autonomous systems operating behind the backs of individuals. Instead, they are scalable actor networks guided by network norms of connectivity, flow, communication, participation, authenticity, and flexibility. ANDRÉA BELLIGER

The ancient stories of Pero breastfeeding her father and the unnamed Roman daughter breastfeeding her mother were of tremendous interest to artists and their audiences from the Renaissance through the Enlightenment. Roman Charity investigates the iconography of the breastfeeding daughter from the perspective of queer sexuality and erotic maternity. It explores the popularity of a topic that renders modern viewers uneasy yet appealed to early modern observers for its eroticizing shock value, ironic take on the venerable concept of charity, and implied critique of patriarchal power structures. The book tries to understand why and how early modern viewers found an incestuous adult breastfeeding scene “good to think with” and aims at expanding and queering our notions of early modern sexuality.

Aesthetic Practices and Spatial Configurations

Historical and Transregional Perspectives HANNAH BAADER, MARTINA BECKER, AND NIHARIKA DINKAR, EDITORS

This anthology surveys configurations of spaces and studies from a transregional perspective how they are created, described, negotiated, and appropriated across cultures. Contributions range from art history to anthropology and literary studies and investigate the interdependence between material forms and environmental contexts. They explore the reinvention of spaces through architectural, pictorial, and discursive practices. This includes the geographical migration of images, objects, and practices from one space to another, across constellations and spatial scales, and the accretion of cultural values around such migration.

Courting Dissolution

Adumbration, Alterity, and the Dislocation of Sacrifice from Space to Image

Fragments, Futures, Absence and the Past

A New Approach to Photography SILKE HELMERDIG

Michael Lent asks what role art has in colonization and dissolution. His practice is informed by the fatal strategies and “raw” phenomenology of Jean Baudrillard. Focusing on the otherness of space to prevent its ultimate dissolution, Lent promotes a spatial practice of radical alterity. Examining ideas of disappearance put forth by Baudrillard and Paul Virilio, he utilizes art as a means for investigating the loss of potentiality and experience through the representation of space, adding new emphasis to their ideas, which were originally ascribed to objects. This book attempts to break free from a cycle that reduces all things to acts of representation and instances of equivalency. MICHAEL LENT

is head of fine art at the University of

According to Walter Benjamin, the past that is not recognized by the present threatens to disappear irretrievably. Consequently, photographs cannot save the moment from oblivion by pure depiction alone. It can only preserve it by keeping the depicted moment actual in every present moment. Instead of counting on the documentary quality of photography, which speaks in the past tense of “what has been,” Silke Helmerdig suggests a different approach to photography: one that extends the future subjunctive (photographic) tense and speaks of “what could be, if,” allowing one to imagine different futures rather than repeatedly harken back to the past.

The Rhetoric of Healing and Democratization in Northern Reconstruction Writing, 1861–1882 KIRSTEN TWELBECK

Beyond the Civil War Hospital argues that Reconstruction was a period of emotional turmoil that precipitated a struggle for form in cultural production. By treating selected texts as multifaceted contributions to Reconstruction’s “mental adaptation process,” Kirsten Twelbeck diagnoses individual conflicts between the “heart and the brain” only partly compensated for by a concern for national healing.

Ficto/critical Strategies

The Nonfictional Literature of David Foster Wallace and Dave Eggers

Subverting Textual Practices of Meaning, Other, and Self-Formation

LUKAS HOFFMANN

GERRIT HAAS

Despite the reign of contemporary irony, authors such as David Foster Wallace and Dave Eggers strive to reach the reader on a level beyond it. Cognitively as well as emotionally they claim to be sincere and true. Focusing largely on these authors’ nonfiction works, Lukas Hoffmann explores the means through which their texts achieve a new form of sincerity.

Gerrit Haas retheorizes the peculiar textual conduct of ficto/critical writing, which intersects fictional with critical discourses as well as aesthetics with poetics and ethics. The slash here signals the conjunction between a self-reflexive ficto-critical insight and a wider discursive ficto-critical motivation. Ultimately, the ficto/critical is an interventionist aesthetic of deconstruction directed at the ramifications of our textual cultures.

Studies on cultural memory have increasingly taken a “spectral turn,” exploring the potential of haunting metaphors to address past instances of violence affecting present cultural realities. Zuzanna Dziuban contributes to understandings of the figure of the ghost by inquiring into its culturally and historically located modality: the emergence of Jewish ghosts in contemporary Polish popular culture, literature, and critical art. Locating this new interest in Jewish ghosts on the map of other Polish (and Jewish) ghostologies, Dziuban explores the cultural and political functions of the post-Holocaust haunted imaginaire. ZUZANNA DZIUBAN

is a research fellow at the University

of Konstanz, Germany, and the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Her research focus is on memory studies, dead-body studies, and the afterlives of the Holocaust.

Doris Lechner examines the contribution of illustrated family magazines to Victorian historical culture. How, by whom, for whom, and with what intentions was history used within this popular medium? How were class, gender, age, religion, and space debated? How were academic and popular approaches to the past linked to the materiality of the medium? Lechner’s focus is on the evangelical Leisure Hour, with comparisons to the London Journal, Good Words, and Cornhill. Her book’s approach to the serialization of history in text and image combines periodical studies and book history with concepts from cultural studies, sociology, and narratology. DORIS LECHNER

Monika Lilleike’s study of Hawaiian Hula ‘Ōlapa reveals how this performing art practice shapes and transmits oral history via a distinct set of performative means of framing and stylization. The intermedial confluence of performance elements, comprising sound, body, and words, instills an oscillating effect of multisensory experience that echoes in a deep-rooted sense concerned with place, distinct environmental features, and story line. This study appeals to discussions on intermediality, metaphoricity, and an anthropology of the senses. It outlines practice as research and embodied knowledge as tools to conduct performance analysis. MONIKA LILLEIKE

Taking its cues from contemporary Western debates on presence in the social sciences and the humanities, this volume focuses on “presence” both as everyday experience and as an experience of intense moments. It raises questions about diverse social configurations of presence as well as the specific cultural repertoires that encode, articulate, and shape discourses. Contributions assume phenomena of presence are connected to particular forms of knowledge, especially tacit knowledge, which (pre)determines experiences of individual and collective presence and becomes tangible in moments of presence or presentification.

Through approaches focused on practices and acts of memory, narrative, reminiscence, representation, and collective memory, these essays critically reflect on the way aging is experienced in various ways across the lifespan. Covering biopics, music by the elderly, and artifacts, they illuminate memory as a cultural process always in the making—situated in particular contexts and shaped by its material conditions of existence.

Psychoanalysis: Topological Perspectives

New Conceptions of Geometry and Space in Freud and Lacan MICHAEL FRIEDMAN AND SAMO TOMŠIČ,

This volume addresses the philosophical, epistemological, and interdisciplinary aspects of the overlap between psychoanalysis and topology. Looking at the historical developments of psychoanalytic theory, one can hardly ignore the significant presence of architectonic and geometrical references traversing Freud’s writings. Lacan’s return to Freud made a decisive step in taking these metaphors seriously and engaged with the mathematical correspondence of Freud’s topological models. The essays in this volume highlight the ongoing relevance of this “topological turn” in psychoanalysis by exploring both concrete topological objects and the philosophical framework that supports the relation of psychoanalysis to topology. MICHAEL FRIEDMAN

Rewriting Discourses of Illness and Disability TANJA REIFFENRATH

As the body politics of life writing in the United States changes, illness and disability memoirs receive increasing attention. Although these narratives are framed by a lack of health, they abundantly present health and do so beyond its binary relationship to the pathological. This book departs from previous scholarship by bringing into focus writers’ representations of cure, recovery, and healing, as well as their reluctance to bring closure to their narratives and align their stories with traditional notions of health. These memoirs therefore construct alternative narratives of illness and disability. TANJA REIFFENRATH

The Journal of Intercultural German Studies (ZiG) showcases the fact that in German studies, interculturality has become a leading, innovative research category. Interculturality picks up on contemporary issues in German-language literary studies, cultural studies, and linguistics and gathers together tendencies and trends to enrich their theoretical presuppositions. This journal consciously conceives of itself as an interdisciplinary, comparative, and open organ, firmly situated within an international scholarly context. The ZiG appears biannually.

British Fascism

A Discourse-Historical Analysis JOHN E. RICHARDSON

The Sarcophagus of Identity Tribalism, Nationalism, and the Transcendence of the Self JAMES M. SKELLY

significance. It is on my list of must-read books.”

—Daniel Ellsberg, author of Papers on the War

—Nigel Copsey, Teesside University

Drawing on the insights of historical and linguistic research, John E. Richardson offers an original approach to the analysis of fascism. He demonstrates that any understanding of the ongoing popularity of fascist political ideology requires interdisciplinary analysis that exposes the multiple layers of meanings within fascist texts and the way they relate to social and historic contexts.

The Sarcophagus of Identity argues that our use of language in constructing identities is unwitting and unreflective and has engendered horrific consequences for tens of millions of people. Inspired by James M. Skelly’s lawsuit against the U.S. secretary of defense while serving as an active-duty military officer, this book urges us to overcome sectarian modes of thinking and engage in deeper solidarity with others.

nature of the regime.”

—Václav Štětka, Loughborough University

—Heiko Pleines, University of Bremen

Natalya Ryabinska questions whether the problems with media reform and press freedom in former Soviet states stem merely from the cultural heritage of their communist (and precommunist) past. Focusing on Ukraine, she argues that, in the period after the fall of communism, peculiar new obstacles to media independence have arisen. They include the structure of media ownership, with news reporting concentrated among politically engaged business tycoons; fuzzy and contradictory legislation; and informal institutions of political interference.

Focusing on the Russian presidential election campaigns of 2000 and 2008, this book examines media manipulation strategies in electoral authoritarian regimes. It explicates the subtle differences between competitive and hegemonic regimes; different types of media manipulation strategies; the diverging extent of media instrumentalization; various interactions among state actors, large business owners, the media, and journalists; the effects these factors have on media content; and the peculiar types of bias prevalent in each type of regime.

This special issue gathers empirical research on Belarusian history, politics, and society, combining a discussion of autonomy with its applicability to trace how individual and collective actors who define themselves as Belarusian—or otherwise—have manifested their agendas in various practices in spite of and in reaction to state pressure. The journal offers new approaches to interpreting Belarusian society as a dynamically changing set of agencies.

This book unpacks the complex relations between the Republic of Poland and the Slovak Republic within the context of processes in the European Union’s political and economic system. The authors explore the political, economic, and social dimensions of bilateral relations in a multilateral context. They describe common interests and areas for development, as well as obstacles to cooperation in foreign and security policy.

The Political Economy of Poverty and Social Transformations of the Global South

The Democratic Developmental State

AARON LOUIS ROSENBERG, EDITORS

TERESITA CRUZ-DEL ROSARIO, EDITORS

This book contributes to the debates on the production and eradication of poverty in the global South. It collects a set of innovative articles concentrating on the way in which poverty, as a social process, has been addressed by popular movements and the governments of various states across the globe. Providing new insights into the limitations of traditional strategies to confront poverty, it highlights how social organizations are working to transform the livelihoods of people through bottom-up struggles and more participatory approaches rather than passively waiting for top-down solutions.

The concept of the democratic developmental state is advocated by international aid agencies, deliberated on by academics, and embraced by policy makers in emerging economies in the global South. Analyzing different approaches to the implementation of democratic developmental states in various countries, this book evaluates whether they are merely replicating the central tenets of an East Asian model or if they are establishing a new and more inclusive conceptualization. In particular, the authors scrutinize to what degree attempts to build a democratic developmental state may be distorted by the imperatives of neoliberalism.

Literature and the Cult of Personality

Essays on Goethe and His Influence GREGORY MAERTZ

“Literature and the Cult of Personality, wide-ranging and comparative in scope, brilliantly examines the strong impact of Goethe—his force as intellect, writer, and modern personality—on British literature and culture. Offering insight after insight, Gregory Maertz masterfully outlines how the Goethezeit occurred in Great Britain, too, and that Goethe’s presence is part of the lateEnlightenment and romantic era everywhere.” —James Engell, Gurney Professor of English and professor of comparative literature, Harvard University

The making of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe into an Anglo-American sage and literary icon was the product of a cult of personality that lay at the center of nineteenth-century cultural politics. Literature and the Cult of Personality reconstructs the culture wars fought over Goethe’s authority, a previously hidden chapter in the intellectual history of the period. This book offers insight into the mediation activities of Mary Wollstonecraft, Henry Crabb Robinson, Thomas Carlyle, Margaret Fuller, George Eliot, Matthew Arnold, the canonical romantic poets, and more. For women writers and Jacobins, Scots and Americans, translating Goethe served as an empowering cultural platform. Reviewing and translating German authors fostered literary enfranchisement and offered a paradigm of literary development in which “rewriters” became original writers through an apprenticeship of translation and reviewing. In the diverse and fascinating body of critical writing examined in this book, a full-blown cult of personality emerges along with a blueprint for the ideology of hero-worship that is more fully mapped out in the cultural and political life of twentieth-century Europe. “Literature and the Cult of Personality is characterized by a deep knowledge of both the literary scene in Germany and the critical debates in the Anglophone world. The book will appeal to students and scholars of German and comparative literature but also to anyone interested in questions of cultural transfer.” —Wynfrid Kriegleder, professor of modern German literature, University of Vienna GREGORY MAERTZ

Consciousness and the Presentation of Character in “Amsterdam,” “Atonement,” and “On Chesil Beach” KARAM NAYEBPOUR

Mind presentation is central to the second phase of McEwan’s writing, in which his plot structure depends on the presentation of characters’ mental thoughts. In Amsterdam (1998), Atonement (2003), and On Chesil Beach (2007), the construction process of McEwan’s fictional minds and their functioning is affected by their experiences and the way their mental aspects control their behavior and relationships. Karam Nayebpour shows how the plot structure in McEwan’s narratives rely on an imbalance between two aspects of the minds he represents (intermental/joint thought and intramental/individual thought), as well as on the dominance of the intramental aspect. The tragic atmosphere in McEwan’s narratives in these books, Nayebpour argues, is the result of this imbalance. KARAM NAYEBPOUR

This collection of essays examines a writer who—despite the prestige that the Nobel Prize has given him—remains controversial with respect to his place in the literary tradition of his home country. This is in part because of the positioning of Turkey in relation to the divide between East and West, which has fueled debate since the beginnings of the modern Turkish state. These essays range widely across Orhan Pamuk’s novelistic oeuvre, addressing how the writer, often assigning allegorical personages to his experimental narratives, portrays tensions such as those between Western secularism and traditional Islam, along with different conceptions of national identity.

—Brett Davies, University of Western Australia and National Taxation Partner, Legal Consolidated Barristers & Solicitors

In The Artful Aussie Tax Dodger, Lex Fullarton studies the impact of taxation legislation in Australia from 1915 to 2016. He finds that despite the lessons of a century, old habits are hard to break. Fullarton describes the British Trust, the introduction of Australia’s “reformed” consumption tax, its VAT, tax-avoidance schemes, and government taxation reform. He considers how Australia’s tax legislation was grounded, added to, and avoided, and how it evolved until it finally went “back to the future.” His work is based on twenty years of experience in taxation law in rural Australia.

God and the Mathematics of Infinity

What Irreducible Mathematics Says About Godhood H. CHRIS RANSFORD

Drawing on the science and mathematics of infinity, H. Chris Ransford analyzes the traditional concept of godhood and reaches surprising conclusions. He addresses philosophy’s core debate on the meaning of spirituality and God. Using mathematics, he explores key questions within this debate, such as why evil exists if there is a God. Ransford’s book fastidiously does not take sides or proffer opinions. It only follows allowable mathematics wherever it leads. By doing so, it makes a major contribution to the understanding of the nature of reality. H. CHRIS RANSFORD , physicist and mathematician, earned

advanced degrees in physics and engineering in France and Germany. He lectured at the University of Melbourne and was a research fellow at Monash University, Australia. He is also the author of The Far Horizon of Time.

Illustrating these paradoxes in diverse dynamic interactions, contributors focus on the conflicts in urban spaces between the heterogeneous groups of the governed, on the one hand, and the governing, on the other. Doing Tolerance explores the genealogies of tolerance, first, through the historical (dis-)continuities of different postcolonial cities and, second, through the daily practices of migrants, refugees, and social and religious minorities in the entanglements of social mobilities.

Peace and conflict research has tended to focus on the causes of phenomena such as civil war, terrorism, and state failure. Witold Mucha takes a comparative approach from a peace-causes perspective, asking why civil war occurred in Peru but not in Bolivia. It is striking given the structural similarities between Peru from 1980 to 1995 and Bolivia from 2000 to 2008, as well as a number of escalation episodes that led Bolivia to the brink of civil war. Mucha explores the reforms and political dialogue that thwarted dangerous consequences.

This volume provides a comprehensive overview of the Czech political past and present. After an overview of Czech history before 1989 and the Velvet Revolution, the authors analyze the political system and culture that has formed since 1989 against the historical background of political transformation. From their perspective, the events of 1989 are not to be seen as a political breakthrough, but as just another chapter of the continuous evolution of the idea of “Czechness” and the challenges it faces.

The Company of Wolves

Ju-On The Grudge

Cowritten by the Irish filmmaker Neil Jordan and the British novelist Angela Carter and based on short stories from her collection, The Bloody Chamber, The Company of Wolves (1984) is a provocative recasting of Little Red Riding Hood. A feverish metaphor for a young girl’s developing sexuality and loss of innocence, the film entwines symbolism, striking visuals, and grisly effects. Coinciding with the release of several classic werewolf films (including An American Werewolf in London [1981] and The Howling [1981]), The Company of Wolves stands apart with its overtly literary roots, feminist stance, and art-house leanings. The film’s narrative is a puzzle box, unfolding as dreams within dreams and stories within stories, which lead us into the dark woods of the protagonist’s psyche. This book explores these aspects and places the film within the context of the careers of its creators and its representation of the female Gothic style.

Takashi Shimizu’s Ju-on franchise was key to the rise of contemporary Japanese horror and its international popularity at the turn of the millennium. The first release of Ju-on The Grudge in 2002 spawned the decade’s thematic interest in supernatural technology and the fear of contagions while skillfully navigating domestic social concerns, such as Japan’s growing elderly population and domestic violence. This Devil’s Advocate explores the production of Ju-on The Grudge and highlights its essential themes and motifs. It considers the work’s cultural influences before concluding with the Ju-on franchise’s ongoing legacy. The book serves as an excellent primer for readers without prior knowledge of Japanese horror or the Ju-on film cycle while providing fresh perspectives on the film for J-horror aficionados.

Frenzy

Scream

Frenzy (1972) was Alfred Hitchcock’s penultimate film and arguably one of his most misunderstood. Whereas even Psycho (1960) eventually became respectable— indeed, the film is a good contender for the master’s most admired—Frenzy remains problematic for many. While Raymond De Foery makes his feelings clear in the title of his book, Alfred Hitchcock’s “Frenzy”: The Last Masterpiece, Hitchcock’s controversial biographer Donald Spoto calls the film “repulsive” and “a closed and coldly negative vision of human possibility.” Frenzy is perhaps Hitchcock´s most nakedly autobiographical film, representing both a comeback and farewell to the city of his birth. Yet it started out as a very different kind of project. This Devil’s Advocate discusses the evolution of the film; its production, reception and place in Hitchcock’s oeuvre; and its status as, Ian Cooper argues, a key film of “sleazy Seventies” British cinema.

Wes Craven’s Scream (1996) emerged after the American slasher cycle had morphed into a post-Fatal Attraction Hollywood thriller trend incorporating key slasher movie tropes. Scream was a spiritual successor to Craven’s unpopular though critically praised previous film, New Nightmare (1994), which evolved out of his frustration at having lost creative control over his most popular creation, Freddy Krueger, rebirthing the character in a postmodern context. Scream appropriates many of the concepts, conceits, and in-jokes inherent in New Nightmare, albeit in a more commercial context that did not alienate teenage audiences. This Devil’s Advocate book fully explores Scream, including its structure, reference points (such as the prominent use of Halloween as a sacred text), marketing, and legacy.

She is the author of The Irresponsible Magician:

With her documentaries and essay films, the Viennese filmmaker Ruth Beckermann has created an exciting body of personal/political cinema. Her work reflects on the relations between history and contemporaneity, on her life as a Jewish woman in postwar Austria and Europe, and on traveling and migration as modes of staying alive. Beckermann’s films speak about identity and class struggle, about her family history in the Habsburg monarchy (The Paper Bridge, 1987) and the war generation’s confronting the crimes of the Werhrmacht (East of War, 1996). Most recently, she has turned toward the deep love affair between two poets, Paul Celan and Ingeborg Bachmann (The Dreamed Ones, 2016). This is the first book to survey Beckermann’s multifaceted oeuvre, with original essays by critics and literary writers, rare illustrations and documents, and an in-depth conversation with the artist.

In a career spanning five decades, Robert Beavers has distinguished himself as one of the most important American avant-garde filmmakers. From his film cycle My Hand Outstretched to the Winged Distance and Sightless Measure to Pitcher of Colored Light (2007) and The Suppliant (2010), Beavers has produced a deeply original film language framed by his use of colored filters and mattes. His investigations of the handwork of anonymous artisans complement his dialogues with Ruskin, Da Vinci, and Borromini in Ruskin (1975/1997), From the Notebook of… (1971/1998), and The Hedge Theater (1986/2002). This volume contains critical investigations of Beavers’s most important films and a collection of the filmmaker’s own writings. Occupying a unique space between poetry and philosophy, his aphoristic meditations vivify his own work and generously illuminate the art of film.

Merchants of War and Peace

British Knowledge of China in the Making of the Opium War SONG-CHUAN CHEN

Merchants of War and Peace challenges conventional arguments that the major driving forces of the First Opium War were the infamous opium-smuggling trade, the defense of British national honor, and cultural conflicts between “progressive” Britain and “backward” China. Instead, it argues that the war was started by a group of British merchants in the Chinese port of Canton in the 1830s, known as the “Warlike Party.” Living in a period when British knowledge of China was growing rapidly, the Warlike Party came to understand China’s weakness, and its members returned to London to lobby for intervention until war broke out in 1839.

However, the Warlike Party did not get its way entirely. Another group of British merchants, known in Canton as the “Pacific Party,” opposed the war. In Britain, the antiwar movement gave the conflict its infamous name, the Opium War, which has stuck ever since. Using materials housed in the National Archives, United Kingdom; the First Historical Archives of China; the National Palace Museum; the British Library; SOAS Library; and Cambridge University Library, this meticulously researched and lucid volume is a new history of the cause of the First Opium War.

Fire and Ice

Li Cunxu and the Founding of the Later Tang RICHARD L. DAVIS

The Later Tang was the first of several ephemeral states created by the Shatuo Turks in tenth-century China, and Li Cunxu, a martial genius, was its founder. In fifteen years, he turned a small satrapy on China’s periphery into a powerhouse capable of unifying the north and much of the southwest. He governed on the principle of racial inclusion and refused to set the ruling minority above the Chinese majority through special privileges. As someone highly literate and artistically gifted, Li Cunxu seemed uniquely capable of bridging rifts within his culturally diverse ruling elite. Unfortunately, he shared the sort of self-absorbed narcissism typical of dynastic founders, which contributed to his deposition merely three years into the reign.

“When empires fall, only the bold survive. Who will be the hero and who the villain, in the eyes of history? Richard L. Davis takes us into the maelstrom of violence that was early-tenth-century China in a lively account of an outstanding warrior king.”

The Later Tang dynasty presided over the epic changes that occasioned the Five Dynasties, when China evolved from a moribund medieval state dominated by hereditary elites to one organized around individual merit, an essential element of the nation-state.

Unruly People shows that in mid-Qing Guangdong banditry occurred mainly in the densely populated core Canton delta where state power was strongest, challenging the conventional wisdom that banditry was most prevalent in peripheral areas. Through extensive archival research, Antony reveals that this is because the local working poor had no other options to ensure their livelihood. Antony treats collective crime as a symptom of the dysfunction in local society and breakdown of the imperial legal system. He analyzes more than 2,300 criminal cases found in palace and routine memorials in the Qing archives, as well as extant Chinese literary and foreign sources and fieldwork in rural Guangdong.

The first half of the twentieth century was fraught with global tensions and political machinations. However, for all the destruction in that period, these geopolitical conditions in Manchuria cultivated an extraordinary variety of architecture and urban planning, which has completely escaped international attention until now. With more than forty carefully chosen images, Ultra-Modernism is the first book in English that illustrates Manchuria’s encounter with modernity through its built environment. Denison and Ren take readers through Russia’s early territorial claims, Japan’s construction of the South Manchuria Railway (SMR), and the establishment of Manchukuo in 1932. The book examines in detail the creation of modern cities along the SMR and focuses on three of the most important urban centers in Manchuria. EDWARD DENISON

It has intrigued many that, unlike Hong Kong, Macau avoided direct Japanese wartime occupation, though it was caught up in the vortex of the wider global conflict. Geoffrey C. Gunn and an international group of contributors come together in Wartime Macau: Under the Japanese Shadow to investigate how Macau escaped the fate of direct Japanese invasion and occupation. Exploring the broader diplomatic and strategic issues during that era, this volume reveals that the occupation of Macau was not in Japan’s best interest because the Portuguese administration in Macau posed no threat to Japan’s control over the China coast and acted as a listening post to monitor Allied activities.

Drawing upon archival materials in English, Japanese, Portuguese, and other languages, the contributors explain how, under the high duress of Japanese military agencies, the Portuguese administration coped with a tripling of its population and issues such as currency, food supply, disease, and survival.

The Cold War was a distinct and crucial period in Hong Kong’s evolution and in its relations with China and the rest of the world. Hong Kong was a window through which the West could monitor what was happening in China and an outlet that China could use to keep in touch with the outside world. Exploring the many complexities of Cold War politics from a global and interdisciplinary perspective, this book shows how Hong Kong attained and honed a pragmatic tradition that bridged the abyss between such opposite ideas as capitalism and communism, thus maintaining a compromise between China and the rest of the world.

Reshaping the Boundaries: The Christian Intersection of China and the West in the Modern Era brings new material and new insights to deepen our understanding of the multilayered, two-way flow of words, beliefs, and experiences between the West and China from 1600 to 1900. The seven essays taken together illustrate the complex reality of boundary-crossing interactions between these cultures and document how hybrid ideas, images, and identities emerged in both China and the West. By focusing on “in-betweenness,” these essays challenge the existing Eurocentric assumption of a simple one-way cultural flow, with Western missionaries transmitting and the Chinese receiving.

Hong Kong boasts a number of rich archaeological sites behind sandy bays. Among these backbeaches is Sha Po on Lamma Island, a site which has long captured the attention of archaeologists.

This book presents the first sustained analysis, framed in terms of a multiperiod social landscape, of the varieties of human activity in Sha Po spanning more than 6,000 years. Synthesising decades of earlier fieldwork together with Atha and Yip’s extensive excavations, the discoveries enabled the authors to reconstruct the society in Sha Po in different historical periods.

Making Icons

Repetition and the Female Image in Japanese Cinema, 1945–1964 JENNIFER COATES

One distinctive feature of postwar Japanese cinema is the frequent recurrence of imagistic and narrative tropes and formulaic characterizations in female representations. These repetitions are important, Jennifer Coates asserts, because sentiments and behaviors forbidden during the war and postwar social and political changes were often articulated by or through the female image. Moving across major character types, from mothers to daughters and schoolteachers to streetwalkers, Making Icons studies the role of the media in shaping the attitudes of the general public. Japanese cinema after the defeat is shown to be an important ground where social experiences were explored, reworked, and eventually accepted or rejected by the audience emotionally invested in these repetitive materials.

“It is very difficult not to heap superlatives upon

excited by Jennifer Coates’s arthistorically informed iconographic approach towards female representation in postwar Japanese cinema. Making Icons will certainly make a splash in the field of Japanese film studies.” —Daisuke Miyao, professor and Hajime Mori Chair in Japanese Language and Literature, University of California, San Diego

Making Icons. This splendid work sheds a shining light on the situation of women in postwar Japan and on postwar Japan itself. Not only is this a deft reading of text and context, it expands the very notion of context, seeing stardom through the lens of filmic and extra-filmic texts. A must-read for anyone interested in Japanese cinema.” —David Desser, professor emeritus, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign JENNIFER COATES

Martial Arts Cinema and Hong Kong Modernity

At the core of this book is a fascinating paradox: the martial arts film, long regarded as a vehicle of Chinese cultural nationalism, can also be understood as a mass cultural expression of Hong Kong’s modern urban-industrial society. This important and popular genre, Man-Fung Yip argues, articulates the experiential qualities, the competing social subjectivities and gender discourses, and the heightened circulation of capital, people, goods, information, and technologies in Hong Kong of the 1960s and 1970s. In addition to providing a novel conceptual framework for the study of Hong Kong martial arts cinema and shedding light on the nexus between social change and cultural/aesthetic form, this book offers perceptive analyses of individual films, including not only the canonical works of King Hu, Chang Cheh, and Bruce Lee, but also many lesser-known ones that have not been adequately discussed before.

Hong Kong Cantopop

A Concise History YIU-WAI CHU

Cantopop was once the leading pop genre of pan-Chinese popular music around the world. In this pioneering study of Cantopop in English, Yiu-Wai Chu shows how the rise of Cantopop is related to the emergence of a Hong Kong identity and consciousness. Chu charts the fortune of this important genre of twentieth-century Chinese music from its humble, lower-class origins in the 1950s to its rise to a multi-million-dollar business in the mid-1990s. As the voice of Hong Kong, Cantopop has given generations of people born in the city a sense of belonging. It was only in the late 1990s, with transformations in the music industry and, more importantly, changes in the geopolitical situation of Hong Kong, that Cantopop showed signs of decline. As such, this book is not only a brief history of Cantonese pop songs, but also of Hong Kong culture. YIU-WAI CHU

Ambient Screens and Transnational Public Spaces

“A must-read for anyone interested in urban media studies and cultural planning.” —Janine Marchessault, York University

Large public screens have now become a ubiquitous part of the contemporary cityscape. Far from being simply oversized televisions, the media experts contributing to this volume put forward a strong case that such screens could serve as important sites for cultural exchange.

Advances in digital technology spell the possibilities of conducting mobile modes of interaction across national boundaries and in the process expose the participants to novel sensory experiences, giving rise to a new form of public culture. Understanding this phenomenon calls for a reconceptualization of “public space” and “ambience.” This pioneering study of the impact of media platforms on urban cultural life presents a theoretical analysis and a history of screens, followed by discussions of site-specific urban screen practices on five continents.

If twenty-first-century urbanization is understood as a problem, its regional epicenter is the cities in Asia. Facing unprecedented diversity in scale, scope, and environmental dynamics in the Asian urban experience, scholars will need an approach that can truly capture the significance of place and context. The challenge, as this volume illustrates, can be met by the analytic of ecologies of urbanism. Eschewing a rigid, single ecology, the contributors identify multiple forms of nature—in biophysical, cultural, and political terms—that have discernable impact on power relations and human social action. The case studies in this book attest to the versatility of ecologies of urbanism.

Understanding English Homonyms explores the phenomenon of homonyms in English by analyzing a selection of those with the most interesting histories. This book not only illustrates how homonyms are used in various contexts but also provides etymological explanations of how they came to be such a prominent feature of the language. The introduction offers the reader a brief summary of the social, historical, and linguistic influences that contributed to the evolution of this phenomenon in modern English. A glossary of the linguistic terms referred to in the text is also included.

This volume should prove popular among students of the language and its history. It will also appeal to anyone who is fascinated by etymology in general. ALEXANDER TULLOCH

Fixing Inequality in Hong Kong YUE CHIM RICHARD WONG

When discussing inequality and poverty in Hong Kong, scholars and politicians often focus on the failures of government policy and push for an increase in social welfare. Yue Chim Richard Wong argues in this book that universal retirement support, minimum wage, and standard hours of work are of limited effect in alleviating inequality. By comparing Hong Kong with Singapore, he points out that Hong Kong needs a new and long-term strategy on human-resource policy. He recommends more investment in education, starting with early education and immigration policy reforms to attract highly educated and skilled people to join the workforce. In analyzing what causes inequality, this book ties together disparate issues into a coherent framework, such as Hong Kong’s aging population, lack of investment in human capital, and family breakdowns.

This catalogue is published to coincide with the UMAG exhibition of the same title. Mexican Modernity displays, through forty paintings, the development of painterly styles and social representations, from the more European-influenced compositions to predominantly indigenous themes that regularly appeared as liberal Mexico sought to distinguish itself from its Spanish colonial past. The exhibition aims to introduce the different and at times unique styles and to highlight the importance that local painters played in the development of neo-expressionist and postmodern art.

Following from Asia Society Hong Kong Center’s preceding exhibition, Life Is Only One: Yoshitomo Nara, this publication is not only a compilation of the works in the exhibition but also an extension with the inclusion of other works and essays that present the artist and his art from his life experiences and memories. Extra thoughts into his inspirations are offered by looking at his childhood, his time in Germany, his love for music, and the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake.

Brian Brake (1927–1988, New Zealand) and Steve McCurry (1950– , U.S.A.) are two eminent photojournalists whose work concurs with the mission of Asia Society— to promote greater understanding of Asia. The catalogue title Picturing Asia references two kinds of picturing: what we do when we make a photograph and the imaginative act implied by the phrase “picture this.” This “double take” carries over into the experience of seeing the different takes of two great photographers who made their reputations as visual storytellers providing eyewitness accounts of “great events.” This catalogue invites viewers to participate in a rich visual conversation between the two photographers and their individually distinct picturings of Asia.

The three-in-one thinking provides an overarching conceptual framework to enhance the urban-planning process and concurrently respond to today’s environmental, economic, and social challenges. More importantly, it provides a cognitive prism to reveal how the myriad tangible and intangible elements that drive the growth of urban settlements can be negotiated to generate holistic outcomes. The book details how the SGR concept has evolved against the background of growing environmental awareness and the different ways cities and planners have responded to these escalating challenges over the recent years. It outlines some of the main elements that characterize the SGR approach, implementation in projects, and sources of inspiration from global geographies. WILFRED LAU MANOS

Crafting a Global Field

Six Decades of the Comparative and International Education Society EDITED BY ERWIN H. EPSTEIN

The Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) is the oldest and largest body of its kind and is a leader among the fourty-four members of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies (WCCES). This book celebrates the CIES’s sixtieth anniversary.

The society grew out of a series of conferences in the mid-1950s. Those conferences were attended by a small group of scholars in the United States who were keen to elucidate and expand their field. Now the society has more than 2,500 individual and about 900 institutional members (mainly libraries) around the world.

This book explains how the society was constructed and internationalized. It analyzes its development trajectory, its major structural components, and the programs and curricula that it has inspired and nourished. ERWIN H. EPSTEIN

Translated by the author and Patia Yasin Edited by George Kao

Widely acclaimed as a classic of contemporary fiction, Taipei People has been compared to James Joyce’s Dubliners. Henry Miller considered Pai Hsien-yung “a master of portraiture.” Literary critics such as C. T. Hsia have called Pai Hsien-yung a “rare talent” who, according to another critic, “has absorbed the diverse techniques of contemporary Western literature to temper and modernize his writing; however, the characters he writes about remain Chinese people and the stories he tells remain Chinese tales.” This collection of fourteen stories has already been translated into French, German, Italian, Dutch, Hebrew, Japanese, and Korean to great praise.

Eclectic and experimental in style, this poetry collection, in its stylistic range, reflects the diversity of research in the field of medicine. The topics examined range from health economics and specific diseases to biological mechanisms and technology platforms used in research. Some provide a lens into the feelings and pressures of patients and doctors, others delve into the workings of the mind. Several have layers and patterns for the reader to discover as an allusion to the process of research. Fellowship starts with the key to successful research—collaboration and fellowship— and ends with a reflection on humanity and the humbling of mankind gained through service to others. As such, this collection epitomizes the path that transforms passion into perfection. It enshrines the mission of the Faculty of Medicine at the Chinese University of Hong Kong to supply knowledge and understanding for the benefit of all.

The Origin and Development of the Yan’an Rectification Movement, 1930–1945

JUSTIN PEARCE

Translated by Stacey Mosher and Guo Jian

This book covers the major areas of Hong Kong taxation—profits tax, salaries tax, property tax, personal assessment, and stamp duty. The 2016–17 edition includes an overview of international tax issues and how they pertain to Hong Kong. This issue also contains general observations on the final reports issued on the G20 and OECD Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) project. The text explains the principles and practice of Hong Kong taxation law with relevant Court and Board of Review decisions and numerous practical examples. This edition includes legislative changes since June 2016, developments including the introduction of a Corporate Treasury Centre regime, the ongoing implementation of the global standard of Automatic Exchange of Information, and other tax-transparency initiatives. A new chapter examines the taxation of special entities such as partnerships.

This work offers the most comprehensive account of the origin and consequences of the Yan’an Rectification Movement. Gao Hua argues that this campaign emancipated the Chinese Communist Party from Soviet-influenced dogmatism and unified it, preparing the Communist Party for final victory against the Nationalist Party in 1949. More importantly, this book shows in great detail how Mao Zedong established his leadership through aggressive intraparty purges, thought control, coercive cadre examinations, and total reorganization of the Party’s upper structure. This movement not only laid the foundations for Mao’s new China but also deeply influenced the Chinese political structure we know today.

Subjective Writing in Contemporary Chinese Literature JIN SIYAN

The people of Hong Kong are asking, “Is this our city?” The rediscovery of who we are and where we live has urged us to reconsider our attitude toward being ruled as “dummy subjects.” Are there any alternative values, and how are these values being appreciated? “E-pathy City” stands for a utopian vision that ordinary people can begin to share by seeing things beyond themselves and then acting along with others through empathetic understanding.

Translated by Isabelle Wen

From Textuality to Historicity analyzes twentieth century Chinese literature and the relationship between Chinese literary theory and modernity. Jin Siyan surveys the work of such leading writers as Zhang Ailing, Beidao, and Mu Dan.

Hong Kong Soft Power captures the relationship between the artists and activists of this city and the country it has been part of since 1997. Locating forms of art practices in the Special Administrative Region within a relational model and situating them within the dynamic and changing art ecosystem that has developed over the past decade, Hong Kong Soft Power describes the local art field as a site of struggle where connections between Chinese Mainland institutions and art practices play a fundamental role.

Lesbian Decadence

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

Lesbian Decadence examines depictions of lesbianism as a social phenomenon, symptom of social malaise, and fantasy in turn-of-the-century France. Praised by leading critics as “authoritative,” “stunning,” and “a marvel of elegance and erudition,” this work contrasts these interpretations with moralists’ condemnations of “the lesbian vice” and the psychiatric establishment’s obsession with classifying symptoms of “inversion” or “perversion.” “A fun read for academic nonfiction, and will inspire us in English-speaking countries to learn more about our French cousins.”

Dynamic Capability-Based Approach to Value Appropriation MARTA NAJDA-JANOSZKA

“Najda-Janoszka manages to combine an analysis of the firm’s response to strategic discontinuities with the logic of value appropriation, all from the perspective of activity clusters of dynamic capabilities.

—Wojciech Czakon, University of Economics in Katowice

—Bugusław Plawgo, University of Bialystok

The number of research works devoted to the complex issues of value receiving, protecting, and retaining is at the moment relatively modest, encompassing both theoretical and empirical dimensions. There is a paucity of coherent theoretical frameworks that provide insight into the dynamic nature of value appropriation. This book offers a dynamic capability-based framework of value appropriation, discussed on a theoretical level and deployed in an empirical investigation.

Contemporary managers deploy a range of methods to ensure effectiveness in the functioning of organizations.

This book confronts the concept of gender, which is an essential category of analysis in the social sciences. It then focuses on women’s and men’s professional, political, and social circumstances, such as the workplace and time management and their activities in the research-and-development and patent sectors. These categories delineate “innovative gender” as a critical tool of analysis through which we can appreciate the role of gender in the innovation process.

Using information from Emperor Justinian’s novels XI and CXXXI, as well as book 4 of Procopius of Caesarea’s De aedificiis, Stanisław Turlej endeavors to show how Justiniana Prima’s historic significance resulted from granting its church the status of an archbishopric with its own province in 535, independent of Rome.

The 1921 Treaty of Riga was soon followed by a Polish-Soviet cold war. The means by which it was waged—first, by Poland and, subsequently, by the Soviets—was via centrifugal tendencies on enemy territory, leading to the split of the neighboring state along its national seams. In the following years both antagonists struggled to win over Ukrainians through propaganda, diplomacy, nationalities policy, economic projects, political subterfuge, and armed irredentism.

Folklore in the Digital Age

Collected Essays

VIOLETTA KRAWCZYK-WASILEWSKA Foreword by Andy Ross “In this innovative book, Krawczyk-Wasilewska has provided us with a complete picture of digital folklore as a cultural heritage, covering the full range of issues that transcend all levels of society and providing fascinating insight into how both local and global cultures affect our postmodern lives.” —Dionizjusz Czubala, University of Silesia, Katowice

Folklore in the Digital Age shows how digital folklore transcends the boundaries of cyberspace and has a real effect on our everyday lives. Online and digital cultures are perhaps the most vivid aspects of globalization, and while global multimedia culture may endanger traditional folklore, there is no doubt that it also creates new folklore. Featuring essays from Violetta Krawczyk-Wasilewska’s fifteen years of e-folklore research, this book covers the most serious political issues of the day, such as the 9/11 attacks, the Arab Spring, and global epidemic threats such as the HIV virus, as well as more lighthearted topics, such as online dating and food culture.

Reassessing Japan’s Responses to the Earthquake, Tsunami, and the Nuclear Disaster KEIICHI TSUNEKAWA, EDITOR

In Five Years After, Japan’s leading researchers of the social sciences study the national response to the “Triple Disaster” of 2011: the Great East Japan Earthquake, followed by a tsunami and meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear power plant. These scholars follow the rebuilding process and the reaction of the media. They revisit the cooperation among regional, national, and international governments; the efforts by a big electricity company to properly decommission a reactor; and the work of local communities to evacuate and redesign a sustainable future. Each chapter introduces data and information that will be new to English-language audiences, with farreaching implications for social science research on natural-disaster response and preparedness. “These essays fairly reassess the national response to the Great East Japan Earthquake and its aftermath from the perspective of politics, economics, community sociology, public administration, and communication studies.
