PRODUCTION:

This coming year we are celebrating a special milestone: Columbia University Press’s 125th anniversary. In June 1893, Seth Low and Nicholas Murray Butler founded Columbia University Press. And here we are, almost 125 years later, with a remarkable record of publishing groundbreaking scholarship and advancing understanding of our world. This season’s catalogue features titles that demonstrate all of the best qualities of the past 125 years and lead us forward into the next. Columbia’s Jeffrey D. Sachs outlines a bold program for A New Foreign Policy (p. 1). Richard Sylla and David J. Cowen draw on Columbia’s collection of Alexander Hamilton’s writings to show how he laid the groundwork for the U.S. financial system (p. 6). Working for Respect (p. 18), by the Columbia sociologists Adam Reich and Peter Bearman, uses fascinating research into Walmart’s workforce to debate how we can make the economy work for everyone. Our new Race, Inequality, and Health series is inaugurated with Troublesome Science (p. 19), which powerfully illustrates the misuse of biology to support biased racial distinctions. And Columbia’s Souleymane Bachir Diagne’s Open to Reason (p. 30) is an insightful guide to the history of Muslim philosophy and its ongoing relevance. Our mission of disseminating knowledge through peerreviewed, carefully edited books is more critical than ever to stimulate conversations and action around the world. The books on display in this catalogue exist thanks to the efforts of our readers, our partners, our donors, and the university. Most of our books are specialized and cost more to publish than their sales will support. That’s why philanthropic funds, including gifts from individuals and foundations, are critically needed to invest in our exceptional publications. Last fall we launched the Publisher’s Circle, our leadership donor group, and since have welcomed nearly fifty individuals—many of them Columbia University Press authors—who have helped us publish great books. Columbia University Press authors are the best in their fields, and their books are made possible thanks to the unique role of the university press, the generosity of our donors, and the support of our university colleagues. Thank you for being part of our community. Jennifer Crewe Associate Provost and Director


A New Foreign Policy

Beyond American Exceptionalism JEFFREY D. SACHS A BET T ER PAT H FOR A M E R I CA N FO R E I G N PO L I CY

The American Century began in 1941 and ended on January 20, 2017. While the United States remains a military giant and is still an economic powerhouse, it no longer dominates the world economy or geopolitics as it once did. The current turn toward nationalism and “America first” isolationism in foreign policy will not make America great. Instead, it represents the abdication of our responsibilities in the face of severe environmental threats, political upheaval, mass migration, and other global challenges.

In this incisive and forceful book, Jeffrey D. Sachs provides the blueprint for a new foreign policy that embraces global cooperation, international law, and aspirations for worldwide prosperity—not nationalism and gauzy dreams of past glory. He argues that America’s approach to the world must shift from military might and wars of choice to technological dynamism and a commitment to shared objectives of sustainable development. Our pursuit of primacy has embroiled us in unwise and unwinnable wars, and it is time to embrace the opportunities that international cooperation offers. A New Foreign Policy explores both the danger of the “America first” mindset and the possibilities for a new way forward, proposing timely and achievable plans to foster a multipolar world that is prosperous, peaceful, fair, and resilient. JEFFREY D. SACHS

Critical Thinking

Statistical Reasoning and Intuitive Judgment VARDA LIBERMAN AND AMOS TVERSKY H OW GO O D DEC I SI O N S A RE MA DE, VI A STATI STI C S A N D P SYC HO LO GY

Life is fundamentally uncertain. We do not know whether it will rain, whether the market will go up or down, or whether terrorists will strike our city. To make matters worse, we also lack a tried and true procedure for evaluating the likelihood of such events. In the absence of certainty or an objective procedure for estimating probabilities, we must rely on our own reasoning, which a great deal of research has shown to be less rational than we would like to believe. “This masterpiece is the fruit of long-term collaboration between Varda Liberman and Amos Tversky, the master of judgment and decision making. It is both a wonderful leisure read and a source of material for a fascinating undergraduate course. Readers will be inspired to think critically about their own reasoning. Some of them will likely report in a few years that this was the book that ushered them into the world of human reasoning and statistical inference.” —Ariel Rubinstein, Tel Aviv University

In Critical Thinking, Varda Liberman and Amos Tversky examine how we make judgments under uncertainty and explain how various biases can distort our consideration of evidence. Using everyday examples, they detail how to examine data and their implications with the goal of helping readers improve their intuitive reasoning and judgment. From the courtroom to the basketball court, cholesterol count to the existence of the supernatural, Liberman and Tversky explore the fundamental insights of probability, causal relationships, and making inferences from samples. They delve into the psychology of judgment, explaining why first impressions are often wrong and correct answers go against our intuitions. Originally written in Hebrew and published by the Open University in 1996, Critical Thinking is an essential guide for students and interested readers alike that teaches us to become more critical readers and consumers of information.

Bad Advice

Or Why Celebrities, Politicians, and Activists Aren’t Your Best Source of Health Information PAUL A. OFFIT A HUM OR OUS GUID E TO TA K I N G O N Q UAC K E X PE RTS AND S EL F -AP P OINT E D AC T I V I STS

Science doesn’t speak for itself. Naïve in the ways of public communication, scientists are often unable to package their insights into the neat narratives that the public requires. Enter the celebrities, the advocates, the lobbyists, and the funders behind them, who take advantage of scientists’ reluctance to provide easy answers, flooding the media with misleading or incorrect claims about health risks. Amid this onslaught of spurious information, Americans are more confused than ever about what’s good for them and what isn’t.

In Bad Advice, Paul A. Offit shares hard-earned wisdom on the dos and don’ts of battling misinformation. For the past twenty years, Offit has been on the front lines in the fight for sound science and public heath. Stepping into the media spotlight as few scientists have done—such as being one of the first to speak out against conspiracy theories linking vaccines to autism—he found himself in the crosshairs of powerful groups intent on promoting pseudoscience. Bad Advice discusses science and its adversaries: not just the manias stoked by slick charlatans and their miracle cures but also corrosive, dangerous ideologies such as Holocaust and climate-change denial. Written with wit and passion, this book is a must-read for any American disturbed by the recent uptick in politicized attacks on science. PAUL A. OFFIT

“With humor and a unique perspective, Offit takes us step by step through our culture’s missteps (and some of his own), relating stories of real science and the difficulties of communicating complicated concepts clearly to a skeptical and sometimes hostile public. Bad Advice shows us how we can succeed in the battle against pseudoscience, seductive gurus with simple messages, and snake oilhawking celebrities.” —Adam Ratner, MD, New York University

Secularism and Cosmopolitanism

Critical Hypotheses on Religion and Politics ÉTIENNE BALIBAR A N UA N C ED VI EW O F COSMO P O LI TA N I SM T H AT TA KES I N TO ACCO UN T RELI GI O US AS W ELL AS SEC ULA R CO N C ERN S

What is the relationship between cosmopolitanism and secularism—the worldwide and the worldly? While cosmopolitan politics may seem inherently secular, existing forms of secularism risk undermining the universality of cosmopolitanism as they privilege the European tradition over all others. In this book, the noted philosopher Étienne Balibar advances a truly democratic and emancipatory cosmopolitanism, which requires a secularization of secularism itself.

Balibar argues for the universal against its dominant institutions. He questions the categories of thought that underlie popular ideas of secularism and religion and outlines the importance of a new critique for the contemporary world. He argues that conflicts between religious and secular discourses need to be reframed from a point of view that takes into account cultural hybridization, migration and mobility, and the transformation of borders, which have reshaped the postcolonial age. Among the topics discussed are the articulation of religion and culture within the ideological realm, the paradoxical genealogy of monotheism, French laïcité, and the implications of the responses to the Charlie Hebdo attacks. Going beyond circumscribed notions of religion and the public sphere, Secularism and Cosmopolitanism is a profound rethinking of identity and difference that seeks to make room for a renewed political imagination.

“Étienne Balibar has been one of the world’s leading political philosophers for the last several decades and has had an enormous impact around questions concerning the relation among notions of individuality, selfhood, and state sovereignty in the modern era. Secularism and Cosmopolitanism is a short but trenchant book by an important thinker on a vital topic.” —William Egginton, Johns Hopkins University

Passions of the Times

JULIA KRISTEVA

Edited with a foreword by Lawrence D. Kritzman A MAGNIF IC ENT COLL E CT I O N O F N E W E SSAYS FR O M ON E OF F R ANC E' S G R E AT M I N DS

Julia Kristeva is a true polymath, an intellectual whose erudition and insight have been brought to bear on psychoanalysis, literary criticism, gender and sex, and cultural critique. Passions of the Times showcases recent essays that demonstrate Kristeva’s capacious intellect, her gifts as a stylist, and the profound contribution of her thought to the challenges of the present.

The collection begins with a vivid recollection of celebrating, as a child in Bulgaria, Alphabet Day, the holiday honoring the Cyrillic letters, that proceeds outward into a contemplation of the writer as translator. Kristeva considers literature with Barthes, freedom through Rousseau, Teresa of Avila and mystical experience, Simone de Beauvoir’s dream life, and Antigone and the psychic life of women. In a series of striking investigations, she thinks through disability and normativity; monotheism and secularization; the need to believe and the desire to know. Calling for the courage to renew and reinvent humanism, she outlines the principles of a stance founded on the importance of respecting human life. Finally, Kristeva discusses French culture and diversity, interrogating the potential for Islam and psychoanalysis to meet, and pays homage to de Beauvoir by rephrasing her dictum into the provocative “One is born woman, but I become one.” JULIA KRISTEVA

“In her inimitable and provocative signature style, Kristeva graces her readers with brilliant readings of texts, paintings, sculptures, artists, and political events. Passions of the Times is an excellent book.” —Verena Conley, Harvard University

Alexander Hamilton on Finance, Credit, and Debt RICHARD SYLLA AND DAVID J. COWEN

H OW HA MI LTO N LED A FI N A N C I A L REVO LUTI O N , I N H I S OWN WO RDS WI TH EX P ERT CO MMEN TA RY

While serving as the first treasury secretary from 1789 to 1795, Alexander Hamilton engineered a financial revolution. Hamilton established the Treasury debt market, the dollar, and a central bank while strategically encouraging private entrepreneurs to establish securities markets and stock exchanges. Yet despite a recent surge of interest in Hamilton, U.S. financial modernization has not been fully recognized as one of his greatest achievements.

“Sylla and Cowen make clear to readers that Hamilton had a solid historical foundation and a far-sighted vision for his policy prescriptions. Without their expert guidance, this structure would often be missed even if one were to read through a larger set of writings. I could not imagine a better team to write this book.” —Matthew Jaremski, Colgate University

This book traces the development of Hamilton’s financial thinking, policies, and actions through a selection of his writings drawn from The Papers of Alexander Hamilton, ​published by Columbia University Press in twenty-seven volumes. The financial historians and Hamilton experts Richard Sylla and David J. Cowen provide commentary that demonstrates the impact Hamilton had on the modern economic system, guiding readers through Hamilton’s distinguished career. The book showcases Hamilton’s ideas on the founding of America, the need for a strong central government, and the architecture of the financial system. Sylla and Cowen center Hamilton’s writings on finance among his most important accomplishments, making his brilliance as an economic policy maker accessible to all interested in this Founding Father’s legacy.

Show Trial

Hollywood, HUAC, and the Birth of the Blacklist THOMAS DOHERTY A LI V ELY H ISTORY O F H UAC I N H O L LYWO O D A N D I TS CULT UR AL AND PO L I T I CA L R A M I FI CAT I O N S

In 1947, the Cold War came to Hollywood. After the House Committee on Un-American Activities held a notorious round of hearings into alleged Communist subversion, the major studios pledged to never again employ a known Communist or unrepentant fellow traveler. The declaration marked the onset of the blacklist era, a time when political allegiances, real or suspected, determined employment opportunities in the entertainment industry. Hundreds of artists were shown the door—or had it shut in their faces.

In Show Trial, Thomas Doherty takes us behind the scenes at the first full-on media-political spectacle of the postwar era, a courtroom drama starring glamorous actors, colorful moguls, on-the-make congressmen, high-priced lawyers, single-minded investigators, and recalcitrant screenwriters, all recorded by newsreel cameras and broadcast over radio. Doherty details the theatrical elements of a proceeding that bridged the realms of entertainment and politics. He tells the story of the Hollywood Ten and the other witnesses, friendly and unfriendly, who testified, and he chronicles the implementation of the postwar blacklist. Show Trial is a rich, character-driven inquiry into how the HUAC hearings ignited the anti-Communist crackdown in Hollywood, providing a gripping new cultural history of one of the most influential events of the postwar era. THOMAS DOHERTY

“Show Trial sheds new light on the story of the Hollywood Ten and HUAC and does it in fresh and exciting ways. Doherty places the personalities of the era—left and right—on center stage. I predict it will become the book to read on this topic.” —Steven Ross, University of Southern California, Dornsife

Sentimental Tales MIKHAIL ZOSHCHENKO

Translated by Boris Dralyuk DA R KLY FUN N Y STO RI ES FRO M O N E O F THE GREAT S OV I ET SATI RI STS

“Comedy is largely a matter of timing, and Dralyuk, like Zoshchenko, has an impeccable sense of rhythm.” —Robert Chandler, translator of Vasily Grossman and Andrei Platonov

“I know of no satirist more angry, more warlike than Mikhail Zoshchenko. Yet I love him not for his anger; I love him for his astonishing irony—for the fact that it is sometimes difficult to determine the target of his mockery: is it his characters, his readers, himself? This new translation preserves Zoshchenko’s irony in all its force.”

Mikhail Zoshchenko’s Sentimental Tales are satirical portraits of small-town characters on the fringes of Soviet society in the first decade of Bolshevik rule. The tales are narrated by one Kolenkorov, who is anything but a model Soviet author: not only is he still attached to the era of the old regime, he is also, quite simply, not a very good writer. Shaped by Zoshchenko’s masterful hands—he takes credit for editing the tales in a series of comic prefaces— Kolenkorov’s prose is beautifully mangled, full of stylistic infelicities, overloaded flights of metaphor, tortured cliché, and misused bureaucratese, in the tradition of Gogol.

Yet beneath Kolenkorov’s intrusive narration and sublime blathering, the stories are genuinely moving. They tell tales of unrequited love and amorous misadventures among down-on-their-luck musicians, provincial damsels, aspiring poets, and liberal aristocrats hopelessly out of place in the new Russia, against a backdrop of overcrowded apartments, scheming, and daydreaming. Zoshchenko’s deadpan style and sly ventriloquy mask a biting critique of Soviet life—and perhaps life in general. An original perspective on Soviet society in the 1920s and simply uproariously funny, Sentimental Tales at last shows Anglophone readers why Zoshchenko is considered among the greatest humorists of the Soviet era. MIKHAIL ZOSHCHENKO

(1894–1958) was a leading Soviet satirist. His

stories of the 1920s made him enormously popular with readers. In 1946 —Andrey Kurkov, author of Death and the Penguin

he was expelled from the Soviet Writers’ Union. He never recovered from this trauma and died of heart failure in 1958. BORIS DRALYUK

Redemption

FRIEDRICH GORENSTEIN

Translated by Andrew Bromfield A STAR K AND P OWE R FU L PO RT R A I T O F H U M A N I T Y CAU GH T UP IN STAL I N ’ S PO L I CE STAT E I N T H E AF TER M AT H OF T H E WA R A N D T H E H O LO CAU ST

It is New Year’s Eve 1945 in a small Soviet town not long ago liberated from German occupation. Sashenka, a headstrong and self-centered teenage girl, resents her mother for taking a lover after her father’s death in the war and denounces her to the authorities for the petty theft that keeps them from going hungry. When she meets a Jewish lieutenant who has returned to bury his family, betrayed and murdered by their neighbors during the occupation, both must come to terms with the trauma that surrounds them as their relationship deepens.

In this short novel, written in 1967 but unpublished for many years, Friedrich Gorenstein effortlessly combines the concrete details of daily life in this devastated society with witness testimonies to the mass murder of Jews. He gives a realistic account of postwar Soviet suffering though nuanced psychological portraits of people confronted with harsh choices and a coming-of-age story underscored by the deep involvement of sexuality and violence. Interspersed are flights of philosophical consideration of the relationship between Christians and Jews, love and suffering, justice and forgiveness. Redemption is an important reckoning with the Holocaust in the Soviet Union and Stalinist repression from a significant Soviet Jewish voice. FRIEDRICH GORENSTEIN

(1932–2002), born in Kiev, was a Soviet

“Set immediately after World War II in a Soviet town emerging from German occupation, Friedrich Gorenstein’s Redemption is a small masterpiece of post-Holocaust fiction. Vividly translated by Andrew Bromfield, this is a gripping book— full of searing psychological portraits threaded across intersecting social, political, and historical microcosms. Redemption startles the reader with its emotionally and philosophically vivid account of sex and violence and the strange horizons of love.” —Val Vinokur, the New School

Jewish writer and screenwriter who collaborated with Andrei Tarkovsky on Solaris (1972), among other works. Unable to publish in the Soviet Union, Gorenstein emigrated to Berlin, where he lived until his death. An award-winning film adaptation of Redemption was released in 2012. ANDREW BROMFIELD

Russian writers such as Victor Pelevin and Boris Akunin. He has also translated Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace.

Hawk of the Mind

Collected Poems YANG MU

Edited by Michelle Yeh A POW ERFUL CO LLEC TI O N FRO M O N E O F THE GREAT VO I CES O F MO DERN C HI N ESE P O ETRY

What flitted back across the hills yesternight, without a sound I thought was a long buried matter of the heart from the deepest recesses of a valley wallowing in death With my own eyes I saw her open a little doorway onto the garden tentatively venture forth, look here, there, then promptly disappear, leaving, in the end, still the very heart of winter, nothing but traces —“A Flurry of Snow”

Yang Mu is a towering figure in modern Chinese poetry. A bold innovator and superb craftsman, he combines cosmopolitan experimentation with poetic forms and an allusive reverence for classical Chinese poetry while remaining rooted in his native Taiwan and its colonial history. Hawk of the Mind is a comprehensive collection that presents crucial works from the many stages of Yang Mu’s career rendered into English by a team of distinguished translators. The volume includes definitive commentary that offers insights into Yang Mu’s major themes and motifs, explaining how he draws on deep engagement with Chinese and Western literary traditions, history, and art, as well as mythology, philosophy, music, and a profound love for the natural world, to create a nuanced and multifaceted artistic universe.

“Yang Mu is always at or near the top of any list of contemporary modernist Chinese-language poets. Thanks to Michelle Yeh and her colleagues, the translations of his poems in this collection offer a generous selection of his lifetime of erudite engagement with both Chinese and Western cultures.” —Edward Gunn, Cornell University

Sōseki

Modern Japan’s Greatest Novelist JOHN NATHAN AN I N- D EP T H P ORT R AYA L O F O N E O F JA PA N ’ S M OST I MPORTANT WR IT ER S

Natsume Sōseki (1867–1916) was the father of the modern novel in Japan, chronicling the plight of bourgeois characters caught between familiar modes of living and the onslaught of Western values and conventions. Yet even though generations of Japanese high school students have been expected to memorize passages from his novels and he is routinely voted the most important Japanese writer in national polls, he remains less familiar to Western readers in comparison to authors such as Kawabata, Tanizaki, and Mishima.

In this biography, John Nathan provides a lucid and vivid account of a great writer laboring to create a remarkably original oeuvre in spite of the physical and mental illness that plagued him all his life. He traces Sōseki’s complex and contradictory character, offering rigorous close readings of Sōseki’s groundbreaking experiments with narrative strategies, irony, and multiple points of view, as well as recounting excruciating hospital stays and recurrent attacks of paranoid delusion. Drawing on previously untranslated letters and diaries, published reminiscences, and passages from Sōseki’s fiction, Nathan renders intimate scenes of the writer’s life and distills a portrait of a tormented yet unflaggingly original author. This biography elevates Sōseki to his rightful place as a great synthesizer of literary traditions and a brilliant chronicler of universal experience who, no less than his Western contemporaries, anticipated the modernism of the twentieth century.

JOHN NATHAN

“It’s been half a century since the appearance of the most recent English-language biography of Natsume Sōseki, one of the giants of twentieth-century world literature, so the arrival of John Nathan’s fine new study is cause for celebration. Sōseki’s life story often reads like one of his novels, and Nathan captures it in prose worthy of his subject.” —Michael Bourdaghs, University of Chicago

Foucault at the Movies

PATRICE MANIGLIER AND DORK ZABUNYAN

Translated by Clare O'Farrell A N E X P LO RATI O N O F FO UCAULT' S RELATI O N SHI P TO FI LM

Michel Foucault’s work on film, although not extensive, compellingly illustrates the power of bringing his unique vision to bear on the subject and offers valuable insights into other aspects of his thought. This book brings together all of Foucault’s commentary on film, some of it available for the first time in English, along with important contemporary analysis.

Patrice Maniglier and Dork Zabunyan situate Foucault’s writings on film in the context of the rest of his work as well as within a broad historical and philosophical framework. They detail how Foucault’s work directly or indirectly inspired both film critics and directors in surprising ways and discuss his ideas in relation to significant movements in film theory and practice. The book includes film reviews and discussions by Foucault as well as his interviews with the prestigious film magazine Cahiers du cinéma and other journals and his dialogues with the feminist writer Hélène Cixous and the directors Werner Schroeter and René Féret. Foucault and those he is in conversation with reflect on the relationship of film to history, the body, power, knowledge, sexuality, aesthetics, and institutions of internment. Foucault at the Movies makes all of Foucault’s writings on film available to an English-speaking audience in one volume and offers detailed, up-to-date commentary, inviting us to go to the movies with Foucault.

How Did Lubitsch Do It? JOSEPH MCBRIDE

A MAGIST ER IAL NEW U N D E R STA N D I N G O F T H E FI L M S AND GENIUS OF ER N ST LU BI TS C H

Orson Welles called Ernst Lubitsch (1892–1947) “a giant. . . . Lubitsch’s talent and originality are stupefying.” Jean Renoir said, “He invented the modern Hollywood.” Celebrated for his distinct style and credited with inventing the classic genre of the Hollywood romantic comedy and helping to create the musical, Lubitsch won the admiration of his fellow directors, including Alfred Hitchcock and Billy Wilder, whose office featured a sign asking, “How would Lubitsch do it?” Yet despite the high esteem in which Lubitsch is held, as well as his unique status as a leading filmmaker in both Germany and the United States, today he seldom receives the critical attention accorded other major directors.

How Did Lubitsch Do It? restores Lubitsch to his former place in the world of cinema. Joseph McBride analyzes Lubitsch’s films in rich detail in the first in-depth critical study to consider the full scope of his work and its evolution in both his native and adopted lands. McBride explains the “Lubitsch Touch” and shows how the director challenged American attitudes toward romance and sex. Expressed obliquely, through sly innuendo, Lubitsch’s risqué, sophisticated, continental humor engaged the viewer’s intelligence while circumventing the strictures of censorship in such masterworks as The Marriage Circle, Trouble in Paradise, Design for Living, Ninotchka, The Shop Around the Corner, and To Be or Not to Be. McBride’s analysis of these films brings to life Lubitsch’s wit and inventiveness and offers revealing insights into his working methods. JOSEPH MCBRIDE

“McBride subtly and concretely describes the change in cinematic tastes over the course of a century. We who love cinema and Lubitsch should be grateful to have such a book in our lifetime, and it will be the definitive work for years to come.” —Molly Haskell, author of From Reverence to Rape: The Treatment of Women in the Movies

Smarter New York City

How City Agencies Innovate

ANDRÉ CORRÊA D'ALMEIDA, EDITOR H OW A "SMA RT C I TY" A DMI N I STRATI O N I N N OVATES, T H R O U GH CASE STUDI ES O F N EW YO RK

“This book will be invaluable to those looking to understand the complexities of life as a public servant and anyone striving to become the champion of innovation that urban administrations in modern societies require among their ranks. The case studies illustrate how strategies for interconnected networks among city agencies, NGOs, individuals, and technology would dramatically improve life within New York City’s ‘gorgeous mosaic.’ ” —David N. Dinkins, 106th mayor, City of New York

Innovation is often presented as the exclusive domain of the private sector. Yet despite widespread perceptions of public-sector inefficiency, government agencies have much to teach us about how technological and social advances occur. Improving governance at the municipal level is crucial to the future of the twenty-first-century city, from environmental sustainability to education, public health, and beyond. In this age of acceleration and massive migration of people into cities around the world, this book explains how innovation from within city agencies and administrations makes urban systems smarter and shapes life in New York City.

Using a series of case studies, Smarter New York City describes the forces and constraints behind innovative processes, including leadership and organization; networks and interagency collaboration; institutional context; technology and real-time data collection; responsiveness and decision making; and results and impact. Cases include residential organic-waste collection, an NYPD program that identifies the sound of gunshots in real time, and the Vision Zero attempt to end traffic casualties, among others. Challenging the usefulness of a tech-centric view of urban innovation, Smarter New York City brings together a multidisciplinary and integrated perspective to imagine new possibilities from within city agencies, with practical lessons for city officials, urban planners, policy makers, civil society, and potential private-sector partners.

Social Value Investing

A Management Framework for Effective Partnerships HOWARD W. BUFFETT AND WILLIAM B. EIMICKE A FR AM EWOR K FOR FR U I T FU L CO O PE R AT I O N BET W EEN THE P UB L IC AND P R I VAT E S E C TO R S I N PU R S U I T O F THE COMM ON GOOD

Our world’s challenges are too great and too complex for any one organization or government to address on its own. But solutions to these challenges do exist and will be found through new partnerships bringing together the public, private, and philanthropic sectors. These partnerships must deliver major public programs and projects and innovative, inclusive, and long-lasting solutions. In Social Value Investing, Howard W. Buffett and William B. Eimicke present a new management framework for developing and measuring the success of such partnerships and provide tools to help maximize collaborative efficiency and positive social impact. Social Value Investing offers practical insights for any private-sector CEO, public-sector administrator, or nonprofit or foundation manager hoping to build successful collaborations. It lays out a five-point framework inspired by value investing—one of history’s most successful investment paradigms. The book tells the compelling stories of cross-sector partnerships from around the world, including ones that transformed Central Park and urban spaces in New York City, provided community-led economic development in Afghanistan, and improved public-service delivery in cities across Brazil. Buffett and Eimicke create a blueprint for designing and managing effective, sustainable collaborations. HOWARD W. BUFFETT

“Buffett and Eimicke posit a new architecture for business models used to tackle our most intractable social problems based on the concept of ‘shared success.’ The solutions they cite lead to not only efficacy but high performance, motivating a new way of thinking about social change. This book updates our thinking on this new form of problem solving and provides useful pragmatic and actionable examples to serve as business models for the next generation of social change maker.” —Ted D.

A Nation Like All Others

A Brief History of American Foreign Relations WARREN I. COHEN A CO N C I SE HI STO RY EXA MI N I N G TWO HUN DRED A N D FI FT Y YEA RS O F A MERI CA’ S RO LE I N THE WO RLD

Belief in the United States as a force for good in the world runs deep. Yet an honest consideration reveals a history marred by great crimes and ordinary errors, alongside many achievements and triumphs. In this comprehensive account of American foreign relations through the Obama administration, Warren I. Cohen calls attention to the uses—and abuses—of U.S. international leadership and the noble as well as the exploitative ends that American power has wrought.

In A Nation Like All Others, Cohen offers a brisk, argumentative history that confronts the concept of American exceptionalism and decries the lack of moral imagination in American foreign policy. He begins with the foreign policy of colonial and postrevolutionary America, exploring interactions with European powers and Native Americans and the implications of slavery and westward expansion. He then traces the rise of American empire through the world wars and the Depression and the long history of the Cold War. Finally, he surveys America’s actions in the Middle East, with particular attention to the mismanagement of the War on Terror. Written with great depth of knowledge and moral clarity, A Nation Like All Others suggests that an unflinching look at the nation’s past is America’s best chance to shape a better future.

“In this brief and illuminating account of U.S. foreign policy from Benjamin Franklin and the American Revolution to Donald Trump and ‘America first,’ Warren I. Cohen displays the wisdom and insight that have made him one of the country’s most admired chroniclers of American diplomacy. Lamenting the nation’s loss of its moral compass, Cohen deftly probes the economic, strategic, and domestic political imperatives that make it so difficult to reconcile the exceptionalism he cherishes with the realism he admires.”

Chaos in the Liberal Order

The Trump Presidency and International Politics in the Twenty-First Century ROBERT L. JERVIS, FRANCIS GAVIN, JOSHUA ROVNER, AND DIANE LABROSSE, EDITORS A TI M ELY, ENGAGING LO O K AT T H E STAT E O F T H E G LOBAL OR D ER TODAY

Donald Trump’s election has called into question many fundamental assumptions about politics and society. Collecting a wide range of perspectives from leading political scientists, historians, and international relations scholars, Chaos in the Liberal Order explores the global trends that led to Trump’s stunning victory and the impact his presidency will have on the international political landscape.

Contributors situate Trump among past foreignpolicy upheavals and enduring models for global governance, seeking to understand how and why he departs from precedents and norms. The book considers key issues, such as what Trump means for America’s role in the world, the relationship between domestic and international politics, and Trump’s place in the rise of the far right worldwide. It poses challenging questions, including: Does Trump’s election signal the downfall of the liberal order or unveil its resilience? What is the importance of individual leaders for the international system, and to what extent is Trump an outlier? Is there a Trump doctrine, or is America’s president fundamentally impulsive and scattershot? With provocative contributions from prominent figures such as Stephen M. Walt, Andrew J. Bacevich, and Samuel Moyn, this timely collection brings much-needed expert perspectives on our tumultuous era. ROBERT L. JERVIS

“The contribution of this book lies in its timeliness, creativity, and boldness in addressing a still evolving and changing Trump foreign policy. The essays address such important concerns as the future of liberal hegemony, domestic public opinion, and the impact of leaks and fake news on trust in the media. The authors provide a depth of analysis and historical perspective that ensures this book will provide insights into the forces underlying the Trump phenomenon for some time to come.” —Deborah Welch Larson, University of California, Los Angeles

Working for Respect

Community and Conflict at Walmart ADAM REICH AND PETER BEARMAN T H E CHA LLEN GES FO R O UR LA BO R FUTURE A N D W H AT WE CA N DO A BO UT THEM

Walmart is the largest employer in the world. It encompasses nearly 1 percent of the entire American workforce. Walmart also presents one possible future of work—Walmartism—in which the arbitrary authority of managers mixes with a hyper-rationalized, centrally controlled bureaucracy in ways that curtail workers’ ability to control their working conditions and their lives.

In Working for Respect, Adam Reich and Peter Bearman examine how workers make sense of their jobs at places like Walmart in order to consider the nature of contemporary low-wage work, as well as the obstacles and opportunities such workplaces present as sites of struggle for social and economic justice. As a part of the project, Reich and Bearman matched student activists with a nascent association of current and former Walmart associates. They follow the efforts of this new partnership, considering the formation of collective identity and the relationship between social ties and social change. They show why traditional unions have been unable to organize service-sector workers in places like Walmart and offer provocative suggestions for new strategies and directions. Working for Respect is a sophisticated reconsideration of the modern workplace that makes important contributions to debates on labor and inequality and the centrality of the experience of work in a fair economy.

“Working for Respect is at once a brilliant analysis of the lives of Walmart workers and an original effort to bridge the tension between scholarly work and activism.” —Mitchell Duneier, Princeton University

“While Walmart plays enormous economic, symbolic, and employment roles nationwide, the interplay of these dynamics has not been fully explored. Working for Respect makes great progress in understanding Walmart as a social institution and therefore in understanding work at Walmart as a unique bellwether of

Troublesome Science

The Misuse of Genetics and Genomics in Understanding Race ROB DESALLE AND IAN TATTERSALL A CO M P R EH ENS IV E A N T I D OT E TO T H E M Y T H T H AT RAC E H AS A M EANIN G FU L BI O LO G I CA L BAS I S

It is well established that all human beings today, wherever they live, belong to one single species. Yet even many people who claim to abhor racism take for granted that human “races” have a biological reality. In Troublesome Science, Rob DeSalle and Ian Tattersall provide a lucid and compelling presentation of how the tools of modern biological science have been misused to sustain the belief in the biological basis of racial classification.

DeSalle and Tattersall explain taxonomy, the scientific classification of organisms: how to identify a species and to understand and organize the relationships among different species and the variants within them. They detail the use of genetic data to trace human origins and look at how scientists have attempted to recognize discrete populations within Homo sapiens. DeSalle and Tattersall demonstrate conclusively that these techniques, when applied correctly to the study of human variety, fail to find genuine differences. While the diversity that exists within our species is real, it defeats any systematic attempt to recognize discrete units within it. Troublesome Science is an important call for researchers, journalists, and citizens to cast aside the belief that race has a biological meaning, for the sake of social justice and sound science alike.

“Troublesome Science provides a deeper analysis than one usually finds in discussions of racial classifications. It brings clarity to the field of systematics and in so doing reveals the hollowness of claims to the scientific legitimacy of race. Clear, assertive, and well argued, it demonstrates that scientific taxonomy cannot draw racial boundaries in human populations from genetic-clustering studies. More than a takedown of a popular journalistic account, it is an important contribution to our understanding of the science behind the classification of species and subspecies.” —Sheldon Krimsky, author of Stem Cell Dialogues

Neurotheology

How Science Can Enlighten Us About Spirituality ANDREW NEWBERG W H AT WE GA I N BY B RI N GI N G B RA I N SC I EN C E A N D R E L I GI O US EX P ERI EN C E TO GETHER

Religion is often cast in opposition to science. Yet both are deeply rooted in the inner workings of the human brain. With the advent of the modern cognitive neurosciences, the scientific study of religious and spiritual phenomena has become far more sophisticated and wide-ranging. What might brain scans of people in prayer, in meditation, or under the influence of psychoactive substances, for instance, show us about religious and spiritual beliefs? “This book offers the promise that ‘neurotheology’ can help move us beyond the conflict between science and religion toward the truth, or at least to a more unified and universal perspective on the interface between spirituality and the brain. Neurotheology covers many potential points of contact between science and religion, acknowledges the existence of complexity and the dangers of simple reductionism, and presents clear information on the capabilities and limitations of various forms of neurological assessment.” —John Peteet, Harvard Medical School

In this book, Andrew Newberg explores the latest findings of neurotheology, the multidisciplinary field linking neuroscience with religious and spiritual phenomena. He investigates some of the most controversial—and potentially transformative—implications of a neurotheological approach. Newberg leads readers on a tour through key intersections of neuroscience and theology, including the potential evolutionary basis of religion; the psychology of religion, including mental-health and brain pathology; the neuroscience of myths, rituals, and mystical experiences; how studies of altered states of consciousness shed new light on the mind-brain relationship; what neurotheology can tell us about free will; and the limitations of what science can say about our religious and spiritual experience of reality. When brain science and religious experience are considered together in an integrated approach, Newberg shows, we might come closer to a fuller understanding of the deepest questions. ANDREW NEWBERG

The Universe as It Really Is Earth, Space, Matter, and Time THOMAS R. SCOTT With the assistance of James Lawrence Powell A POP UL AR - S C IENC E ACCO U N T O F O U R PH YS I CA L U N I V ER S E AND T H E L AWS T H AT G OV E R N I T

The universe that science reveals to us can seem far outside the human mind’s comfort zone. Subjects near and far open up dizzying vistas, from the infinitesimal to the colossal. We inhabit a tumultuous universe that extends from our immediate environs to the most distant galaxies and beyond. And humanity, the unlikely product of uncountable coincidences on unimaginable scales, has at its disposal a tool of unparalleled effectiveness to make sense of it all. When the mind balks at the vertiginous complexity of the universe, science unveils the elegance amid the chaos.

In this book, Thomas R. Scott ventures into the known and the unknown to explain our universe and the laws that govern it. The Universe as It Really Is begins with physics and the building blocks of the universe—time, gravity, light, and elementary particles—and chemistry’s ability to explain the interactions among them. Scott tours the earth and atmospheric sciences to explain the forces that shape our planet and then takes off for the stars to describe our place in the cosmos. He gives vivid introductions to our collective scientific inheritance, narrating discoveries such as the shape of the atom and the nature of the nucleus or how we use GPS to measure time and what that has to do with relativity. A clear demonstration of the power of scientific reasoning to bring the incomprehensible within our grasp, The Universe as It Really Is gives an engrossing account of just how much we do understand about the world around us. THOMAS R. SCOTT

“The Universe as It Really Is is an excellent vision of the natural history of the cosmos.

Facebook Society

Losing Ourselves in Sharing Ourselves ROBERTO SIMANOWSKI Translated by Susan H. Gillespie T H E CO N SEQ UEN C ES O F SO C I A L- MEDI A OVERSHA RI N G FO R OUR I N DI VI DUA LI TY

Facebook claims that it is building a “global community.” Whether this sounds utopian, dystopian, or simply self-promotional, there is no denying that social-media platforms have altered social interaction, political life, and outlooks on the world, even for people who do not regularly use them. In this book, Roberto Simanowski investigates our social-media society—and its insidious consequences for our concept of the self.

Simanowski contends that while they are often denounced as outlets for narcissism and self-branding, social networks and the practices they cultivate in fact remake the self in their image. Sharing is the outsourcing of one’s experiences, encouraging unreflective self-narration rather than conscious self-determination. We let our lives become episodic autobiographies whose real author is the algorithm lurking behind the interface. Social-media companies’ relentless pursuit of personal data for advertising purposes presents users with increasingly targeted, customized information, attenuating cultural memory and collective identity. Instead of experiencing the present, we ceaselessly document and archive it. Presenting a creative, philosophically informed perspective that wields its erudition to speak to a shared reality, Facebook Society asks us to come to terms with the networked world for our own sake and for all those with whom we share it.

“Facebook Society is a wonderfully rich extended essay on a symptomatic social medium of our day. With his focus on autobiography, friendship, memory, and narrative, Simanowski outlines ways in which digital media have the power to change human perception and social relations. A broad historical, literary, and critical perspective on social media such as Simanowski’s is very much needed both in the humanities and in the social sciences.” —Andreas Huyssen, Columbia University

Penis Envy and Other Bad Feelings

The Emotional Costs of Everyday Life MARI RUTI

A POWER F UL C R IT IQ U E O F T H E E M OT I O N A L TO L L S O F S E XI S M AND CAP ITA L I S M

Mari Ruti combines theoretical reflection, cultural critique, feminist politics, and personal anecdotes to analyze the prevalence of bad feelings in contemporary everyday life. Proceeding from a playful engagement with Freud’s idea of penis envy, Ruti’s autotheoretical commentary fans out to a broader consideration of neoliberal pragmatism. She focuses on the emphasis on good performance, high productivity, constant self-improvement, and relentless cheerfulness that characterizes present-day Western society. Revealing the treacherousness of our fantasies of the good life, particularly the idea that our efforts will be eventually be rewarded—that things will eventually get better—Ruti demystifies the false hope that often causes us to tolerate an unbearable present.

Theoretically rigorous and lucidly written, Penis Envy and Other Bad Feelings is a trenchant critique of contemporary gender relations. Refuting the idea that we live in a postfeminist world where gender inequalities have been transcended, Ruti describes how neoliberal heteropatriarchy has transformed itself in subtle and stealthy and therefore all the more insidious ways. Ruti shines a spotlight on the depression, anxiety, frustration, and disenchantment that frequently lie beneath our society’s sugarcoated mythologies of self-fulfillment, romantic satisfaction, and professional success, speaking to all who are concerned about the emotional costs of the pressurecooker ethos of our age. MARI RUTI

“Mari Ruti’s Penis Envy and Other Bad Feelings is truly a unique book. Seamlessly weaving important concerns from recent queer and feminist theory into a quasiautobiographical, quasi-polemical fabric, it addresses crucial issues that permeate our daily lives in the twenty-first century. Ruti’s book moves from the large scale to the intimate and back again, engaging both Western societies in general and specific instances of discomfort within their confines.” —Gail M.

Novel Sounds

Southern Fiction in the Age of Rock and Roll FLORENCE DORE H OW SO UTHERN WRI TERS C REATED THE "RO C K N OVEL"

The 1950s witnessed both the birth of both rock and roll and the creation of Southern literature as we know it. Around the time that Chuck Berry and Elvis Presley put their electric spin on Southern vernacular ballads, a canonical group of white American authors native to rock’s birthplace began to write fiction about the electrification of those ballads, translating into literary form key cultural changes that gave rise to the infectious music coming out of their region. In Novel Sounds, Florence Dore tells the story of how these forms of expression became intertwined and shows how Southern writers turned to rock music and its technologies— tape, radio, vinyl—to develop the “rock novel.”

“Every chapter of Novel Sounds works at a high and steady pitch

Dore considers the work of Southern writers like William Faulkner, Flannery O’Connor, and William Styron alongside Bessie Smith, Lead Belly, and Bob Dylan to uncover deep historical links between rock and Southern literature. Along with rock pioneers, Southern authors drew from blues, country, jazz, and other forms to create a new brand of realism that redefined the Southern vernacular as global, electric, and notably white. Resurrecting this Southern literary tradition at the birth of rock, Dore clarifies the surprising but unmistakable influence of rock and roll on the American novel. Along the way, she explains how literature came to resemble rock and roll, an anti-institutional art form if there ever was one, at the very moment academics claimed literature for the institution.

of intelligence and cogency. Florence Dore’s work teems with rich archival unearthings and interpretive ingenuity. Dore’s intricate connections, juxtapositions, and analyses of multimedia interanimation are never less than absorbing and are often eye-opening both at the level of textual forms and in the larger terms of cultural understanding in which they were embedded.” —Eric Lott, author of Black Mirror: The Cultural Contradictions of American Racism

Dickinson’s Nerves, Frost’s Woods

Poetry in the Shadow of the Past WILLIAM LOGAN

ON E OF P OET RY 'S G R E AT CR I T I C S S E E S T H E CA N O N WI TH NEW EY ES

In Dickinson’s Nerves, Frost’s Woods, the noted and often controversial critic of contemporary poetry William Logan returns to some of the greatest poems in the canon of English literature. He reveals what we may not have seen before and what his critical eye can do with what he loves. In essays that pair different poems—“Ozymandias,” “On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer,” “In a Station of the Metro,” “The Red Wheelbarrow,” “After great pain, a formal feeling comes,” and “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” among others— Logan reconciles history and poetry to provide new ways of reading poets ranging from Shakespeare and Shelley to Lowell and Heaney.

In these striking essays, Logan presents the poetry of the past through the lens of the past, attempting to bring poems back to the world in which they were made. Logan’s criticism is informed by the material culture of that world, whether postal deliveries in Regency London, the Métro lighting in 1911 Paris, or the wheelbarrows used in 1923. Deeper knowledge of the poet’s daily existence lets us read old poems afresh, providing a new way of understanding poems now encrusted with commentary. Logan shows that criticism cannot just root blindly among the words of the poem but must live partly in a lost world, in the shadow of the poet’s life and the shadow of the age. WILLIAM LOGAN

“Dickinson’s Nerves, Frost’s Woods only confirms and enriches my sense that William Logan is the most outstanding critic of poetry now practicing in America. An extraordinary critical effort.” —William Pritchard, Amherst College

NGOs as Newsmakers

As traditional news outlets’ international coverage has waned, several prominent nongovernmental organizations such as Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and Médecins Sans Frontières have taken on a growing number of seemingly journalistic functions. Digital technologies and social media have increased the potential for NGOs to communicate directly with the public, bypassing traditional gatekeepers. But have these efforts changed and expanded traditional news practices and coverage—and are there consequences to blurring the lines between reporting and advocacy?

“Powers provides a rich analysis of the role of NGOs in shaping

In NGOs as Newsmakers, Matthew Powers analyzes the growing role NGOs play in shaping—and sometimes directly producing—international news. Drawing on interviews, observations, and content analysis, he charts the dramatic growth in NGO news-making efforts, examines whether these efforts increase the organizations’ chances of garnering news coverage, and analyzes the effects of digital technologies on publicity strategies. Although the contemporary media environment offers NGOs greater opportunities to shape the news, Powers finds, it also subjects them to news-media norms, as they are still dependent on traditional media and political elites and influenced by the expectations of donors and officials. Through an unprecedented glimpse into NGOs’ newsmaking efforts, Powers portrays the possibilities and limits of NGOs as newsmakers, with important implications for the intersections of journalism and advocacy.

Journalism Under Fire

Protecting the Future of Investigative Reporting STEPHEN GILLERS HOW ST R ONGER P R OT E CT I O N S FO R T H E PRE SS CAN GUAR AN T E E T H E FU T U R E O F I N VE ST IGAT IV E R EP O RT I N G

A healthy democracy requires vigorous, uncompromising investigative journalism. But today the free press faces a daunting set of challenges: in the face of harsh criticism from powerful politicians and the threat of lawsuits from wealthy individuals, media institutions are confronted by an uncertain financial future and stymied by a judicial philosophy that takes a narrow view of the protections that the Constitution affords reporters. In Journalism Under Fire, Stephen Gillers proposes a bold set of legal and policy changes that can overcome these obstacles to protect and support the work of journalists.

Gillers argues that law and public policy must strengthen the freedom of the press, including protection for news gathering and confidential sources. He analyzes the First Amendment’s Press Clause, drawing on older Supreme Court cases and recent dissenting opinions to argue for greater press freedom than the Supreme Court is today willing to recognize. Journalism Under Fire also advocates policies that facilitate and support the free press as a public good: a publicly funded National Endowment for Investigative Reporting, improvements to the Freedom of Information Act, and a statute to protect media organizations from frivolous lawsuits. Gillers weaves together questions of journalistic practice, law, and policy into a program that can ensure a future for investigative reporting and its role in our democracy. ©BARBARA S. GILLERS

Media U

How the Need to Win Audiences Has Shaped Higher Education MARK GARRETT COOPER AND JOHN MARX A H I STO RY O F HOW HI GHER EDUCATI O N HAS C REATED I TS AU DI EN C E THRO UGH N EW MEDI A TEC HN O LO GI ES

Are homecoming games and freshman composition, Twitter feeds and scholarly monographs really mortal enemies? Media U presents a provocative rethinking of the development of American higher education centered on the insight that universities are media institutions. Mark Garrett Cooper and John Marx argue that the fundamental goal of the American research university has been to cultivate audiences and convince them of its value. “This is a key and compelling study that, more than just in media studies, intervenes in insightful ways in debates about the very nature, purpose, mission, and reach —both real and possible— of the American university.” —Dana Polan, New York University

Media U shows how universities have appropriated new media technologies to convey their message about higher education, the aims of research, and campus life. The need to create an audience stamps each of the university’s steadily proliferating disciplines, shapes its structure, and determines its division of labor. Cooper and Marx examine how the research university has sought to inform publics and convince them of its value to American society, from the rise of football and Great Books programs in the early twentieth century through the co-option of 1960s student activist media and the latest promises of technological disruption. By exploring how media engagement brought the American university into being and continues to shape academic labor, Media U presents essential questions and resources for reimagining the university and confronting its future.

Lust on Trial

Censorship and the Rise of American Obscenity in the Age of Anthony Comstock AMY WERBEL A HISTORY OF AM ER I CA’ S C H A N G I N G AT T I T U D E S TOWAR D S EXUAL M O R A L I T Y A N D PO R N O G R A PH Y

Anthony Comstock was America’s first professional censor. From 1873 to 1915, as secretary of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, Comstock led a spirited crusade against lasciviousness, salaciousness, and obscenity. But as Amy Werbel shows in this rich cultural and social history, Comstock’s campaign to rid America of vice in fact led to greater acceptance of the materials he deemed objectionable, offering a cautionary tale about the unintended consequences of censorship.

In Lust on Trial, Werbel provides a colorful journey through Comstock’s career that doubles as a history of post–Civil War America’s risqué visual and sexual culture. She describes how Comstock’s raids shaped New York City and American culture through his obsession with the prevention of lust by means of censorship and how his restrictions provided an impetus for the increased circulation and explicitness of “obscene” materials. By opposing women who preached sexual liberation and empowerment, suppressing contraceptives, and restricting artistic expression, Comstock drew the ire of civil-liberties advocates, inspiring more open attitudes toward sexual and creative freedom and more sophisticated legal defenses. Drawing on material culture high and low, including numerous examples of the “obscenities” Comstock seized, Lust on Trial provides fresh insights into the complicated relationship between law and cultural change.

Open to Reason

Muslim Philosophers in Conversation with the Western Tradition SOULEYMANE BACHIR DIAGNE Translated by Jonathan Adjemian A G U I DE TO THE DEP TH A N D I N SI GHTS O F I SLA MI C PH I LOSO P HI CA L TRA DI TI O N S

What does it mean to be a Muslim philosopher, or to philosophize in Islam? In Open to Reason, Souleymane Bachir Diagne traces Muslims’ long intellectual and spiritual history of examining and questioning beliefs and arguments to show how Islamic philosophy has always engaged critically with texts and ideas both inside and outside its tradition. Through a rich reading of classical and modern Muslim philosophers, Diagne explains the long history of philosophy in the Islamic world and its relevance to crucial issues of our own time.

“This is a remarkable and interesting book. Open to Reason is

From classical figures such as Avicenna to the twentieth-century Sufi master and teacher of tolerance Tierno Bokar Salif Tall, Diagne explores how Islamic thinkers have asked and answered such questions as: Does religion need philosophy? How can religion coexist with rationalism? What does it mean to interpret a religious narrative philosophically? What does it mean to be human and what are human beings’ responsibilities to nature? Is there such a thing as an “Islamic” state, or should Muslims reinvent political institutions that suit their own times? Diagne shows that philosophizing in Islam in its many forms throughout the centuries has meant a commitment to forward and open thinking. A remarkable history of philosophy in the Islamic world as well as a work of philosophy in its own right, this book seeks to contribute to the revival of a spirit of pluralism rooted in Muslim intellectual and spiritual traditions.

Restating Orientalism

A Critique of Modern Knowledge WAEL B. HALLAQ E XPAND ING T H E C R I T I Q U E O F O R I E N TA L I S M TO A WI D ER BODY OF M O D E R N K N OW L E D G E

Since Edward Said’s foundational work, Orientalism has been singled out for critique as the quintessential example of Western intellectuals’ collaboration with oppression. But has Orientalism come to stand in for all of the sins of European modernity, at the cost of neglecting the complicity of the rest of the academic disciplines?

In this landmark theoretical investigation, Wael B. Hallaq takes critique of Orientalism as a point of departure for rethinking the foundations of the modern project. Refusing to isolate or scapegoat Orientalism, Restating Orientalism extends the critique to other fields, from law and scientific inquiry to core ideas of academic thought such as sovereignty and the self. Hallaq traces their involvement in colonialism, mass annihilation, and systematic destruction of the natural world, interrogating and historicizing the set of causes that permitted modernity to wed knowledge to power. Restating Orientalism reopens the problem of power and knowledge to an ethical critique and ultimately theorizes an exit from modernity’s predicaments. A remarkably ambitious attempt to overturn the foundations of a wide range of academic disciplines while also drawing on the best they have to offer, Restating Orientalism exposes the depth of academia’s lethal complicity in modern forms of capitalism, colonialism, and hegemonic power. WAEL B. HALLAQ

“Hallaq’s Restating Orientalism is going to add a new dimension to the long debate about Orientalism. Hallaq’s work offers both a partial reevaluation and a substantial extension to Said’s original argument. Going beyond the questions of representations of the Orient, Hallaq’s work expands the scope of this critical discussion to reexamine the epistemological foundations of modern historical social sciences.” —Sudipta Kaviraj, Columbia University

No Place for Russia

European Security Institutions Since 1989 WILLIAM H. HILL H OW THE P OST–CO LD WA R EFFO RT TO I N C LUDE R U SS IA I N THE EURO P EA N SEC URI TY O RDER FA I LED

The optimistic vision of a “Europe whole and free” after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 has given way to disillusionment, bitterness, and renewed hostility between Russia and the West. In No Place for Russia, William H. Hill traces the development of the post–Cold War European security order to explain today’s tensions, showing how attempts to integrate Russia into a unified Euro-Atlantic security order were gradually overshadowed by the domination of NATO and the EU—at Russia’s expense. “This book constitutes virtually a definitive history of the breakdown of post–Cold War hopes and illusions, and it is so well documented that I believe that it will be an invaluable resource for historians. Probably the most comprehensive, thorough, and balanced analysis of the evolution of Euro-Atlantic-Eurasian security institutions from the last years of the Cold War through the present.” —P. Terrence Hopmann, Johns Hopkins University

Hill argues that the redivision of Europe has been largely unintended and not the result of any single decision or action. Instead, the current situation is the cumulative result of many decisions—reasonably made at the time—that gradually produced the current security architecture and led to mutual mistrust. Hill analyzes the U.S. decision to remain in Europe after the Cold War, the emergence of Germany as a major power on the continent, and the transformation of Russia into a nation-state, placing major weight on NATO’s evolution from an alliance dedicated primarily to static collective territorial defense into a security organization with global ambitions and capabilities. Closing with Russia’s annexation of Crimea and war in eastern Ukraine, No Place for Russia argues that the post–Cold War security order in Europe has been irrevocably shattered, to be replaced by a new and as-yet-undefined order.

The Ecocentrists

A History of Radical Environmentalism KEITH MAKO WOODHOUSE AN I M M ER S IV E H ISTO RY O F E N V I R O N M E N TA L I S M ' S MOST UNCOM P R OM ISI N G ACT I V I STS

Disenchanted with mainstream environmentalism, a new, more radical kind of environmental activist emerged in the 1980s. Radical environmentalists used direct action, from blockades and tree-sits to industrial sabotage, to save a wild nature that they believed was in a state of crisis. Questioning the premises of liberal humanism, they subscribed to an ecocentric philosophy that attributed as much value to nature as to people. Although critics dismissed them as marginal, radicals posed a vital question that mainstream groups too often ignored: Is environmentalism a matter of common sense or a fundamental critique of the modern world?

In The Ecocentrists, Keith Mako Woodhouse offers a nuanced history of radical environmental thought and action in the late-twentieth-century United States focused especially on the group Earth First!. While radicals challenged the material and philosophical basis of industrial civilization, they glossed over the ways economic inequality and social difference defined people’s different relationships to the nonhuman world. Woodhouse discusses how such views increasingly set Earth First! at odds with movements focused on social justice and considers the implications of ecocentrism’s sweeping critique of human society for the future of environmental protection. A groundbreaking intellectual history of environmental politics in the United States, The Ecocentrists is a timely study that makes a case for the role of skepticism and doubt in environmental thought. KEITH MAKO WOODHOUSE

“Woodhouse deftly brings together the intellectual history of the many threads of American environmentalism with the thinkers, the activists, the organizations, and the issues that have charged environmental politics since the 1960s. Required reading for anyone with a serious interest in the history of environmental activism and thought.” —James Morton Turner, Wellesley College

Sprezzatura

Concealing the Effort of Art from Aristotle to Duchamp PAOLO D’ANGELO A P H ILOS OP H ER ’S PE R S PE C T I V E O N T H E A RT O F M AK ING IT LO O K E ASY

“Sprezzatura is very readable—hiding, as it were, the effort with which it was written. It shows how a ‘history of an idea’ can be written with both historical and philosophical panache.” —Paul Kottman, New School for Social Research

The essence of art is to conceal art. Italian expresses this idea with a unique word, sprezzatura. In this book, the philosopher of art Paolo D’Angelo reconstructs the history of concealing art, from ancient rhetoric to our own times, cosmetics to interior design, politics to poetry, the English garden to shabby chic. An erudite and surprising tour through aesthetics, philosophy, and art history, Sprezzatura presents a strikingly original argument with deceptive ease. PAOLO D’ANGELO

The Mystery of How We Make Sense of the World RAYMOND TALLIS A POWER F UL P H ILOSO PH I CA L G U I D E TO M A K I N G S E NSE OF OUR S ENS E M AK I N G

Our sense-making capabilities and the relationship between our individual and collective intelligence and the comprehensibility of the world are both remarkable and deeply mysterious. Our capacity to make sense of the world and the fact that we pass our lives steeped in knowledge, albeit incomplete, that far exceeds what we are or even experience have challenged our greatest thinkers for centuries.

RAYMOND TALLIS

“A book for anyone baffled by the world and our place in it. Tallis is an engaging guide through the fog.” —Tom McClelland, University of Warwick

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

In Logos, Raymond Tallis steps into the gap between mind and world to explore what is at stake in our attempts to make sense of our world and our lives. With his characteristic combination of scholarly rigor and lively humor, he reveals how philosophers, theologians, and scientists have sought to demystify our extraordinary capacity to understand the world by collapsing the distance between the mind that does the sense making and the world that is made sense of. Such strategies—whether by locating the world inside the mind or making the mind part of the world—are shown to be deeply flawed. Indeed, it is the distance that we need, argues Tallis, if knowledge is to count as knowledge and for there to be a distinction between the knower and the known. Tallis brings his formidable analysis to bear on the many challenges we face when trying to make sense of our sense making. The book showcases Tallis’s knack for making tricky philosophical arguments cogent and engaging and his remarkable ability to help us see humankind more clearly. was professor of geriatric

The Black Circle

A Life of Alexandre Kojève JEFF LOVE A N I NTELLEC TUA L B I O GRA P HY O F THE I N FLUEN TI A L R U SS IA N - BO RN FREN C H P HI LOSO P HER

Alexandre Kojève (1902–1968) was a thinker of many contradictions. Born in Russia, he spent most of his life in France. His interpretation of Hegel and his notorious declaration that history had come to an end influenced many well-known figures. An unorthodox Marxist, he was a critic of Martin Heidegger and interlocutor of Leo Strauss, who played a leading role in establishing the European Economic Community; he wrote works, mostly unpublished, on quantum physics, the problem of the infinite, Christian theology, Mahayana Buddhism, and Vassily Kandinsky’s paintings.

“The Black Circle is an extraordinary

In The Black Circle, Jeff Love reinterprets Kojève’s works, showing him to be a provocative thinker who challenged modern society and its valuation of individuality, self-interest, and freedom from death. Emphasizing Kojève’s neglected Russian roots, The Black Circle puts him in the context of the latenineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Russian debates over the proper ends of human life. Love explores Kojève’s account of Hegel and his neglected later works, clarifying the oft-misinterpreted “end of history.” Joining intellectual history, close textual analysis, and philosophy to reassess an essential modern theorist, The Black Circle reveals Kojève’s thought as a profound critique of capitalist individualism and a timely meditation on human freedom.

The Great Flowing River

A Memoir of China, from Manchuria to Taiwan CHI PANG-YUAN Translated by John Balcom A POWER F UL P ER S O N A L ACCO U N T O F T H E CH ANGES T H AT S H O O K T W E N T I ET H - CE N T U RY CH I N A AND TAIWAN

Heralded as a literary masterpiece and a best-seller in the Chinese-speaking world, The Great Flowing River is a personal account of the history of modern China and Taiwan unlike any other. In this eloquent autobiography, the noted scholar, writer, and teacher Chi Pang-yuan recounts her youth in mainland China and adulthood in Taiwan. Chi’s remarkable life, told in rich and striking detail, humanizes the eventful and turbulent times in which she lived.

The Great Flowing River begins as a coming-of-age story set against the backdrop of China’s war with Japan. Chi depicts life in pre-occupation Manchuria and gives an eyewitness account of life in China during the war with Japan. She tells the tale of her youthful romance with a dashing pilot that ends tragically when he is shot down in the last days of the war. The book describes the deepening political divide in China and her choice to take a job in Taiwan, where she would remain after the Communist victory. Chi details her growth as an educator, scholar, and promoter of Chinese literature in translation and her realization that despite her roots in China, she has found a home in Taiwan, giving an immersive account of the postwar history of Taiwan from a mainlander’s perspective. A novelistic, epoch-defining narrative, The Great Flowing River unites the personal and intimate with the grand sweep of history. CHI PANG-YUAN

“This is a memoir of epic proportions. Chi’s memoir is a testimony of this tremendous historical period that is the long twentieth century for the Chinese and the Taiwanese peoples. The English translation of this epochal memoir is most certainly significant.” —Letty Chen, Washington University in St. Louis

“I don’t know of any other memoir in English that is quite like this. It is of enormous significance because it adds so much for those with an interest in the Republic of China in both China and Taiwan.” —J. Megan Greene, University of Kansas

Gender and the Politics of History

30th Anniversary Edition JOAN WALLACH SCOTT

W I N N ER O F THE 1989 J OA N KELLY P RI Z E O F THE A M E R I CA N HI STO RI CA L ASSO C I ATI O N

“A real tour de force.” —New York Times

“Scott has given us an intelligent, sensitive reflection on the nature of events, of thought, of judgment, of history.” —New Republic

“Thoughtful and pioneering.” —Nation

This landmark work from a renowned feminist historian is a foundational demonstration of the uses of gender as a conceptual tool for cultural and historical analysis. Joan Wallach Scott offers a trenchant critique of the compartmentalization of women’s history, arguing that political and social categories are always fundamentally shaped by gender and that questions of gender are essential to considerations of difference in history. Exploring topics ranging from language and class to the politics of work and family, Gender and the Politics of History is a vital contribution to feminist history and historical methodology that also speaks more broadly to the ongoing redefinition of gender in our political and cultural vocabularies. This anniversary edition of a classic text in feminist theory and history shows the evergreen relevance of Scott’s work to the humanities and social sciences. In a new preface, Scott reflects on the book’s legacy and implications for contemporary politics as well as what she has reconsidered as a result of her engagement with psychoanalytic theory. The book also includes a previously unpublished essay, “The Conundrum of Equality,” which takes up issues concerning affirmative action. JOAN WALLACH SCOTT

Reductionism in Art and Brain Science Bridging the Two Cultures ERIC R. KANDEL COMM END ED —2 01 7 PR OS E AWA R D I N BI O M E D I CI N E AND NEUR OS C IENC E

Are art and science separated by an unbridgeable divide? Can they find common ground? The neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel, whose remarkable scientific career and deep interest in art give him a unique perspective, demonstrates how science can inform the way we experience a work of art. Kandel draws on his Nobel Prize–winning work to illustrate how reductionism—the distillation of larger scientific or aesthetic concepts into smaller, more tractable components—has been used by scientists and artists alike to pursue their truths.

In Reductionism in Art and Brain Science, Kandel shows how this reductionist approach, applied to the most complex puzzle of our time—the brain—has been employed by modern artists who distill their subjective world into color, form, and light. Kandel demonstrates through bottom-up sensory and top-down cognitive functions how science can explore the complexities of human perception and help us perceive, appreciate, and understand great works of art. At the heart of the book is an elegant elucidation of the contribution of reductionism to the evolution of modern art. Featuring captivating drawings of the brain alongside full-color reproductions of modern art masterpieces, this book draws out the common concerns of science and art and how they illuminate each other.

Sacred Knowledge

Psychedelics and Religious Experiences WILLIAM A. RICHARDS “A valuable work and a real treat to read. . . . Few people could have written Sacred Knowledge and even fewer people could have done it so eloquently.”

—Scientific American

—OPEN Foundation

The climate scientist Michael E. Mann and the political cartoonist Tom Toles are on the front lines of the fight against climate denialism. In The Madhouse Effect, the two science crusaders take on the intellectual pretzels into which denialists twist logic. Toles’s cartoons and Mann’s expert science communication aim to restore sanity—and may even convert die-hard doubters. This paperback edition includes a new chapter on the Trump administration’s attack on climate science.

Sacred Knowledge is the first welldocumented, sophisticated account of the effect of psychedelics on biological processes, human consciousness, and religious experiences. Based on nearly three decades of legal research with volunteers, William A. Richards argues that, if used responsibly and legally, psychedelics have the potential to assuage suffering and constructively affect the quality of human life.

Roberto Simanowski explores the entanglements of those who contribute to the amassing of ever more data about their lives, leading to the statistical evaluation and individual profiling of their selves.

Timothy Morton argues that ecological awareness in the present Anthropocene era takes the form of a strange loop or Möbius strip, twisted to have only one side. Dark ecology puts us in an uncanny position of radical self-knowledge, illuminating our place in the biosphere and our belonging to a species.

Dust and Other Stories YI T'AEJUN

Translated by Janet Poole

The Reincarnated Giant

An Anthology of Twenty-First-Century Chinese Science Fiction MINGWEI SONG AND

“This eloquent book masterfully restores the quiet, nostalgic voices of Yi T’aejun’s fiction while also positing a connection between early North Korean literature and its colonial antecedent. Poole’s judicious selection of midcentury short stories is an important contribution to Korean literature in translation.” —Samuel Perry, Brown University

Yi T’aejun was one of twentieth-century Korea’s true masters of the short story—and a man who crossed the border to the North; little is known of his fate. Dust and Other Stories offers a selection of Yi’s stories across time and place, showcasing a superb stylist caught up in the midst of his era’s most urgent ideological and aesthetic divides. YI T’AEJUN

was born in northern Korea in 1904 and settled

in Seoul, where he became one of colonial Korea’s most prolific and influential writers. His date of death is unknown. JANET POOLE

THEODORE HUTERS, EDITORS “These beautifully written and translated stories will capture the imagination of most readers.” —Hua Li, Montana State University

A new wave of Chinese science fiction is here. Contemporary writers conjure glittering visions and subversive experiments— ranging from space opera to cyberpunk, parodies of China’s rise to deconstructions of the myth of national development. This anthology showcases the best of contemporary science fiction from Taiwan, Hong Kong, and the People’s Republic of China in fifteen boundary-blurring short stories and novel excerpts. The Reincarnated Giant is an essential read for anyone inter­ested in the future of the genre. MINGWEI SONG

Chinese culture of the Six Dynasties period (220–589) saw a blossoming of stories of the fantastic, called zhiguai, “records of the strange” or “accounts of anomalies.” Hidden and Visible Realms, traditionally attributed to Liu Yiqing, is one of the most significant zhiguai collections, distinguished by its fascinating stories, elegant style, and Buddhist influence.

The Tale of Cho Ung

The Sarashina Diary

A Classic of Vengeance, Loyalty, and Romance

A Woman’s Life in Eleventh-Century Japan (Reader’s Edition)

SOOKJA CHO, TRANSLATOR

SUGAWARA NO TAKASUE NO MUSUME

“This book enriches and expands the study of premodern Korean literature for scholars and general readers alike.” —Chan E. Park, Ohio State University

The Tale of Cho Ung is one of the most widely read and beloved stories of Chos˘on Korea. The anonymously written tale recounts the adventures of protagonist Cho Ung. As a child, Ung flees a wicked tyrant who wrongfully killed his father and took advantage of the emperor’s death to seize the throne from the young prince. Driven by his passion, righteousness, and sense of duty, he pursues retribution and restores justice. This first translation into English of The Tale of Cho Ung reveals the depths of a text that conveys the richness and complexity of premodern Korean literature and culture. SOOKJA CHO

is assistant professor of Korean and compara-

tive literature at Arizona State University.

Translated, with an introduction, by Sonja Arntzen and Moriyuki Itō “We can be grateful for this new translation. . . . Through long, thoughtful immersion, the translators have brought to life a world otherwise unavailable to the modern, nonspecialist reader.” —Times Literary Supplement

A thousand years ago, a young Japanese girl began a diary that she would continue to write for the next forty years and carefully edit later in life. This reader’s edition streamlines Sonja Arntzen and Moriyuki Itō’s acclaimed translation of the Sarashina Diary for general readers and classroom use. The translators’ commentary offers insight into the author’s family and world, as well as the style, structure, and textual history of her work. SONJA ARNTZEN

How to Read Chinese Poetry in Context is an introduction to the golden age of Chinese poetry, spanning the earliest times through the Tang dynasty (618–907). It aims to break down barriers—between language and culture, poetry and history—that have stood in the way of teaching and learning Chinese poetry. ZONG-QI CAI

Ling Hon Lam gives a deeply original account of the history of emotions in Chinese literature and culture centered on the idea of emotion as space, which the Chinese call “emotion realm” (qingjing). Lam traces how the emotion realm underwent significant transformations from the dreamscape to theatricality in sixteenth- to eighteenth-century China. Through the lens of this genealogy of emotion realms, Lam remaps the Chinese histories of morals, theater, and knowledge production. LING HON LAM

promises to be an authoritative text in the field.”

—Andrea Bachner, Cornell University

—Seii Lippit, University of California, Los Angeles

The figure of the Chinese sex worker has become a trope for both Asian American sexuality and Asian modernity. Lily Wong studies the mobility and mobilization of the sex-worker figure through transpacific media networks, illuminating the intersectional politics of racial, sexual, and class structures. Transpacific Attachments examines shifting depictions of Chinese sex workers in popular media—from literature to film to new media—that have circulated within the United States, China, and Sinophone communities from the early twentieth century to the present. “Chineseness,” the figure of the sex worker shows, is an affective product as much as an ethnic or cultural signifier.

Christina Yi investigates how linguistic nationalism and national identity intersect in the formation of modern literary canons. She considers a range of Japanese-language writings by Korean colonial subjects published in the 1930s and early 1940s and postwar reconstructions of literary canons in Japan and Korea, with a particular focus on writers from the Korean diasporic community in Japan. Yi challenges conventional understandings of national literature by showing how Japanese language ideology shaped colonial histories and the postcolonial present in East Asia.

In 1995, China resurrected a Qing-era law mandating that the reincarnations of prominent Tibetan Buddhist monks be identified by drawing lots from a golden urn. Forging the Golden Urn goes in search of the origins of this tradition. Max Oidtmann traces how a Chinese bureaucratic technology—a lottery for assigning administrative posts—was exported to the Tibetan and Mongolian regions of the Qing empire and transformed into a ritual for identifying and authenticating reincarnations. He sheds new light on the role that Tibetan elites played in the production of new religious traditions in the context of Qing colonialism. MAX OIDTMANN

Philip Thai chronicles the vicissitudes of smuggling in modern China—its practice, suppression, and significance—to demonstrate the intimate link between coastal smuggling and the amplification of state power.

In recent years, authoritarian states in the Middle East and North Africa have faced increasing international pressure to decentralize political power. Janine A. Clark examines why Morocco decentralized while Jordan did not and evaluates the impact of their divergent paths in order to explain how authoritarian regimes can use decentralization reforms to consolidate power.

FILM STUDIES

Melodrama Unbound

Across History, Media, and National Cultures

CHRISTINE GLEDHILL AND LINDA WILLIAMS, EDITORS “This book brings melodrama studies up to date with strongly argued, exciting, original work.” —Robert Lang, author of American Film Drama: Griffith, Vidor, Minnelli

MAGGIE HENNEFELD

“Hennefeld does a remarkable job of framing the politics of early film comedy in relation to latenineteenth- and early-twentieth-century philosophies of laughter. This is a far-reaching study that will change our understanding of the history of early film slapstick and gender.” —Robert J. King, Columbia University

For too long melodrama has been associated with outdated and morally simplistic stereotypes of the Victorian stage; for too long film studies has construed it as a singular domestic genre of familial and emotional crises, either subversively excessive or narrowly focused on the dilemmas of women. Drawing on new scholarship in transnational theatrical, film, and cultural histories, this collection demonstrates that melodrama is a transgeneric mode that has long spoken to fundamental aspects of modern life and feeling.

is professor emerita in film and media

and rhetoric at the University of California, Berkeley.

In early slapstick films with titles such as Saucy Sue, Mary Jane’s Mishap, Jane on Strike, and The Consequences of Feminism, comediennes spontaneously combust while doing housework, disappear and reappear when sexually assaulted, or transform into men by eating magic seeds. This book reveals the gender politics of comedy and the comedic potentials of feminism through close consideration of hundreds of silent films. Maggie Hennefeld demonstrates that slapstick comediennes were crucial to the emergence of film language and experimentation with the visual and social potential of cinema. MAGGIE HENNEFELD

Avengers Assemble!

Critical Perspectives on the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Film Censorship

Regulating America’s Screen SHERI CHINEN BIESEN

TERENCE MCSWEENEY “A magnificent book. As insightful and comprehensive as it is engaging and timely, this full-length examination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a rewarding read for passionate superhero fans as well as researchers in the fields of film studies, political science, and cultural studies.” —Marc DiPaolo, Southwestern Oklahoma State University, author of War, Politics, and Superheroes: Ethics and Propaganda in Comics and Film

Avengers Assemble! is a vibrant and theoretically informed study of one of the defining and most financially successful film franchises of the new millennium. Beginning with Iron Man in 2008, it explores both the cinematic and the televisual branches of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from a diverse range of critical perspectives, considering their status as both embodiments of the changing practices of the blockbuster film and affective cultural artifacts that are profoundly immersed in the turbulent political climate of their era. TERENCE MCSWEENEY

Film Censorship is a concise overview of Hollywood censorship and efforts to regulate American films. Sheri Chinen Biesen draws extensively on primary research from motion-picture archives to unveil the fascinating behind-the-scenes history of cinema censorship and explore how Hollywood responded to censorial constraints on screen content in a changing American cultural and industrial landscape. This primer on American film censorship considers the historical evolution of motion-picture censorship in the United States spanning the Jazz Age Prohibition era, lobbying by religious groups against Hollywood, industry self-censorship for the Hays Office, federal propaganda efforts during wartime, easing of regulation in the 1950s and 1960s, the MPAA ratings system, and the legacy of censorship in later years.

The Shining

I Spit on Your Grave

Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining (1980) is both a successful mainstream horror film about a violent father in a deserted and haunted hotel and a more rarefied and esoteric object for cult audiences who are convinced that the film means something totally different. The film appears replete with enigmatic and provocative allusions, giving it an almost unmatched resonance. Seeing the film as a vehicle for secret messages has led to a myriad of different interpretations, helping elevate the film’s cult status over the years to make it a special case in cinema. This volume investigates The Shining’s most fascinating aspects as a film while also addressing the range of meanings and interpretations assigned to the film, looking into what has made it one of the key cult films of the last half century.

There is no denying that Meir Zarchi’s I Spit on Your Grave (1978) deserves its title as one of the most controversial films ever made. While many condemn it as misogynistic, others praise it for raising uncomfortable issues about sexual violence. David Maguire examines why the film still continues to provoke fierce debate forty years on, not only investigating the historical, social, and political landscape into which the film was first released—and condemned—but also examining how it is has inadvertently become ground zero for the rape-revenge genre because of its countless imitators. The book explores how academic study has reevaluated the film’s importance as a cultural statement on gender, the conflicting readings that it throws up, the timeless appeal of its story as examined through folklore and mythology, and its updating to reflect contemporary issues in a post-9/11 world of vengeance and retaliation.

PHILIPPE MET, EDITOR

second edition

Foreword by Volker Schlöndorff

ROB STONE

Exquisite Transgressions

“Eclectic” is a word often associated with the output of the French director François Ozon. Whether his films are in French, English, or even German, Ozon is interested in how his characters learn to stand up for themselves and their own desires. This book explores the craft and influences of one of France’s most prolific talents, paying special attention to the one constant in his work: Ozon’s superb command of narrative and storytelling techniques. BOYD VAN HOEIJ

has been a contrib-

uting critic at Variety since 2008 and the Hollywood Reporter since 2013.

Transatlantic Auteur

Afterword by Wes Anderson

A pioneer of the French New Wave, Louis Malle went on to enjoy an acclaimed transatlantic career. This collection of original essays reassesses his richly eclectic and boldly subversive oeuvre to redress the critical neglect it has suffered over the years. The volume features an interview with the playwright John Guare as well as contributions by the renowned filmmakers Volker Schlöndorff and Wes Anderson. PHILIPPE MET

LITERARY STUDIES

Islamophobia and the Novel PETER MOREY

Islamophobia and the Novel analyzes how recent works of fiction have framed and responded to the rise of anti-Muslim prejudice. Peter Morey offers readings of novels by John Updike, Ian McEwan, Hanif Kureishi, Monica Ali, Mohsin Hamid, John le Carré, and other writers, showing how their portrayal of difference both reflects and refutes the ideological preoccupations of politicians and the media in the post-9/11 West, as well as how Khaled Hosseini and Azar Nafisi relate the Muslim world to a Western audience. Literary depictions of Muslim experience have challenged liberal assumptions regarding the novel’s potential for empathy and its ability to encompass a variety of voices. Morey argues for a greater degree of critical self-consciousness in our understanding of writing by and about Muslims, in the hope that unveiling the conflicted nature of anti-Muslim bigotry might contribute to Islamophobia’s eventual dismantling.

The Microeconomic Mode

Political Subjectivity in Contemporary Popular Aesthetics JANE ELLIOTT

“Elliott’s analysis of this terrifying aesthetic mode promises nothing less than a new understanding of our political present.” —Timothy Bewes, Brown University

From The Road to Game of Thrones, across works as seemingly different as Gone Girl and Saw, literature, film, and television have become obsessed with the intersection of survival and choice. Jane Elliott identifies and analyzes this new and distinctive aesthetic phenomenon, which she calls the microeconomic mode. She traces the implicit theoretical and political claims conveyed by this combination of abstraction and extremity. The Microeconomic Mode combines revelatory close readings of key literary and popular texts with significant theoretical interventions to identify how an aesthetics of choice has reshaped our contemporary understanding of what it means to be human. is senior lecturer in English at King’s College

of poetry.”

—Blakey Vermeule, Stanford University

—Anat Pick, Queen Mary University of London

Why is belief in an afterlife so persistent across times and cultures? Regina M. Janes proposes a new theory of the origins of the hereafter rooted in the question that a dead body raises: Where has the life gone? Humans then and now, in communities and as individuals, ponder what they would want or experience were they in that body. Janes reveals how little concern ancient afterlives had with morality and argues that the British enlightenment invented the wishfulfilling afterlife. Inventing Afterlives shows that in asking what happens after we die we define the worlds we inhabit and the values by which we live.

Why do poets write about animals? What can poetry do for animals and what can animals do for poetry? In Poetry and Animals, Onno Oerlemans explores a broad range of English-language poetry about animals from the Middle Ages to the contemporary world. Through careful readings of dozens of poems that reveal generous and often sympathetic approaches to recognizing and valuing animals’ difference and similarity, Oerlemans demonstrates how the forms and modes of poetry can sensitize us to the moral standing of animals and give us new ways to think through the problems of the human-animal divide.

Born into a low-level literati family in the port city of Ningbo, the seventeenth-century Chinese Christian convert Zhu Zongyuan likely never left his home province. Yet Zhu nonetheless led a remarkably globally connected life. In Global Entanglements of a Man Who Never Traveled, Dominic Sachsenmaier explores the mid-seventeenth-century world and the worldwide flows of ideas through the lens of Zhu’s life, combining the local, regional, and global. A strikingly original work, this book is a major contribution to East Asian, transnational, and global history. DOMINIC SACHSENMAIER

The activism that arose from the upheavals of the 1960s fundamentally altered U.S. foreign policy—yet previous accounts have often overlooked its crucial role. Sarah B. Snyder shows how transnational connections and social movements spurred activism that curbed assistance to repressive governments and enshrined human rights in U.S. foreign policy for years to come.

HOWARD CHIANG

XIA SHI

“A rich and original work.” —Ari Heinrich, University of California, San Diego

“Shi masterfully reveals the complex economic, social, and political webs that defined these women’s progressive activities.”

Howard Chiang traces the genealogy of sexual knowledge in China from the demise of eunuchism to the emergence of transsexuality, showing the rise of new structures of knowledge to be central to the formation of Chinese modernity. From anticastration discourses in the late Qing era to sex-reassignment surgeries in Taiwan in the 1950s and queer movements in the 1980s and 1990s, After Eunuchs explores the ways the introduction of Western biomedical sciences transformed normative meanings of gender, sexuality, and the body in China. Theoretically sophisticated and far-reaching, After Eunuchs is an innovative contribution to the history and philosophy of science and queer and Sinophone studies. HOWARD CHIANG

—Thomas Mullaney, Stanford University

During the years spanning the late Qing dynasty and the early Republican era, new opportunities emerged for Chinese women. Much scholarly attention has been given to the rise of the modern, independent “new women” during this period. Xia Shi unearths the history of how married nonprofessional women without modern educations moved out of their sequestered domestic life; engaged in charitable, philanthropic, and religious activities; and repositioned themselves as effective public actors in urban Chinese society. She offers a new perspective on how the public, private, and domestic realms were being remade and rethought in early-twentieth-century China.

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States emerged as the world’s sole superpower, which was the dawn of an international order known as unipolarity. What has the sudden realization that it stands alone atop the international hierarchy done to the United States? In Psychology of a Superpower, Christopher J. Fettweis examines how unipolarity affects the way U.S. leaders conceive of their role, make strategy, and perceive America’s place in the world. Combining security, strategy, and psychology, Fettweis investigates how the idea of being number one affects the decision making of America’s foreign-policy elite. CHRISTOPHER J. FETTWEIS

International Peace

The technological leadership of the United States increasingly involves collaboration with other countries, especially China and India. The Conflicted Superpower explores how the world’s most powerful country navigates the policy of its relationship with these two rising powers. Through in-depth case studies of U.S. policies toward skilled immigration, foreign students, and offshoring, Andrew B. Kennedy argues that U.S. policy is not strategic but rather the outcome of domestic battles between competing interests—the technology firms and research universities that embody U.S. technological leadership and resistance from labor and anti-immigration groups.

“With Us and Against Us shines a bright light on a notoriously shadowy subject: the cooperation between states and terrorist groups. If there’s anyone qualified to write about the conflicting interests that

drive these relationships and the tough trade-offs they entail for U.S. policy makers, it’s Tankel.”

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the international system has been unipolar, centered on the United States. But the rise of China foreshadows a change in the distribution of power. Øystein Tunsjø shows that the international system is moving toward a U.S.-China standoff, bringing us back to bipolarity—a system in which no third power can challenge the top two. The Return of Bipolarity in World Politics surveys the new era of superpowers to argue that the combined effects of the narrowing power gap between China and the United States and the widening power gap between China and any third-ranking power portend a new bipolar system that will differ in crucial ways from that of the last century.

Red China’s Green Revolution

Technological Innovation, Institutional Change, and Economic Development Under the Commune

Contesting Cyberspace in China

Online Expression and Authoritarian Resilience RONGBIN HAN

JOSHUA EISENMAN “Eisenman offers hard data to refute the conventional, quasi-official story that before 1978 China’s rural economy was in dire straits, requiring neoliberal efficiencies to fix it.” —Lynn T. White, Princeton University

China’s dismantling of the Mao-era rural commune system and return to individual household farming under Deng Xiaoping has been seen as a successful turn away from a misguided social experiment. Joshua Eisenman marshals previously inaccessible data to overturn this narrative, showing that the commune modernized agriculture, increased productivity, and spurred an agricultural green revolution that laid the foundation for China’s future rapid growth. JOSHUA EISENMAN

Baines Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University

Rongbin Han offers a powerful counterintuitive explanation for China’s survival in the digital age. Han reveals how the state, service providers, and netizens negotiate the limits of discourse, arguing that state censorship has conditioned online expression yet has failed to bring it under control. However, online expression has proved less threatening than expected because of the multiplicity of beliefs, identities, and values online. State-sponsored and spontaneous progovernment commenters have turned out to be a major presence online, denigrating dissenters and barraging oppositional voices. Han’s research interrogates our assumptions about authoritarian resilience and the democratizing power of the Internet. RONGBIN HAN

Is political theory political enough? In recent years, political theory has seen a revival of interest in realism as an approach to thinking about politics. Realism seeks to avoid such pitfalls by remaining focused on politics itself, giving greater emphasis to the realities and distinctiveness of politics and the ways they ought to shape how we think and act in the political realm. Politics Recovered brings together prominent scholars to develop the idea of what it might mean to theorize politics “realistically.” By exploring the nature, distinctiveness, and prospects of realist thought, Politics Recovered shows how political theory can affirm reality in order to provide meaningful and compelling answers to the fundamental questions of political life.

excellent introduction.” —Robert D. Priest, Royal Holloway, University of London

A philologist, historian, and biblical scholar, Ernest Renan is today most familiar in the English-speaking world for his 1882 lecture “What Is a Nation?” and its definition of a nation as an “everyday plebiscite.” What Is a Nation? and Other Political Writings is the first English-language anthology of Renan’s political thought. Offering a broad selection of Renan’s writings from several periods of his public life, most previously untranslated, it restores Renan to his place as one of France’s major liberal thinkers. ERNEST RENAN

(1823–1892) was a French scholar of the

ancient Near East and early Christianity, best known for The Life of Jesus (1862), an international best-seller, and his views on national identity.

PHILOSOPHY

The Varieties of Temporal Experience

Travels in Philosophical, Historical, and Ethnographic Time MICHAEL JACKSON

The Return of Work in Critical Theory Self, Society, Politics

CHRISTOPHE DEJOURS, JEAN-PHILIPPE DERANTY, EMMANUEL RENAULT, AND NICHOLAS H. SMITH

“This is a rich and highly important work of anthropological thought and creative writing.”

“Urgently needed.”

—Robert Desjarlais, Sarah Lawrence College

—Titus Stahl, University of Groningen

Michael Jackson demonstrates the significance of a phenomenology of time for ethnography, philosophy, and history through a multifaceted consideration of the gap between our cultural representations of temporality and the bewildering multiplicity of our experience of being-in-time. He attempts to do justice to the extraordinary variety of temporal experience, at the same time exploring the ethical and existential quandaries that arise from the complexity of lived time.

The Return of Work in Critical Theory presents a bold new account of the human significance of work and the human costs of contemporary forms of work organization. A collaboration among experts in philosophy, social theory, and clinical psychology, it brings together empirical research with incisive analysis of work’s political stakes to present a lucid diagnosis of the malaise and pathologies of contemporary work and propose powerful remedies.

PHILOSOPHY

Genealogies of Terrorism

Revolution, State Violence, Empire VERENA ERLENBUSCH “Verena Erlenbusch’s careful genealogy of ‘terrorism’—tracking the term’s multiple and overdetermined meanings since its first appearance as a political concept in the late eighteenth century— powerfully shows us how we all too frequently ask the wrong questions about terrorism. This critical book offers a necessary corrective to how we think about terrorism and reshapes the grounds upon which we should have any meaningful debate about terrorism in the present moment.” —Andrew Dilts, Loyola Marymount University

In Genealogies of Terrorism, Verena Erlenbusch rejects attempts to define what terrorism is in favor of a historico-philosophical investigation into the conditions under which uses of this contested term become meaningful. Offering an engaged critique of terrorism and the mechanisms of social and political exclusion that it enables, Genealogies of Terrorism is an empirically grounded and philosophically rigorous critical history with important political implications.

In Defense of Charisma VINCENT W. LLOYD

“In this wonderfully provocative book, Vincent W. Lloyd explores the theory and practice of charisma in their kaleidoscopically varied forms. After reading this book I find myself seeing the effects of charisma everywhere. A truly remarkable work of humanistic scholarship, In Defense of Charisma is also a great deal of fun.” —Alan Jacobs, author of The Book of Common Prayer: A Biography

In Defense of Charisma develops an account of moral charisma that weaves insights from politics, ethics, and religion together with reflections on contemporary culture. Vincent W. Lloyd distinguishes between authoritarian charisma, which furthers the interests of the powerful, naturalizing racism, patriarchy, and elitism, and democratic charisma, which prompts observers to ask new questions and discover new possibilities. At its best, charisma can challenge the way we see ourselves and our world, priming us to struggle for justice. VINCENT W. LLOYD

In The Duplicity of Philosophy’s Shadow, Elliot R.

—Catherine Keller, author of Cloud of the Impossible

—Jeffrey Kosky, Washington and Lee University

Through a bold and historically rooted vision for the theory and method of philosophy of religion, The Sacrality of the Secular maps new and compelling possibilities for a nonsecularist secularity. In recent decades, philosophers in the continental tradition have taken a notable interest in the return of religion, and anthropologists and sociologists of religion have rejected the once-dominant secularization thesis. Bradley B. Onishi connects these lines of thought to reveal how continental philosophy’s religious investigations have enabled critical reflections on the category of the secular. BRADLEY B. ONISHI

Skidmore College.

Michael S. Hogue explores the potential of a dissenting immanental tradition in American religion.

Pentecostals in America

ARLENE M. SÁNCHEZ WALSH

“Sánchez Walsh explores, describes, and interprets the almost infinitely varied and complex world of American Pentecostalism. The result is an impressionist painting of Pentecostalism in America, beautifully colored and bursting with vivid description and stimulating interpretations, both useful and delightfully interesting to read.” —Paul Harvey, University of Colorado, Colorado Springs

Arlene M. Sánchez Walsh provides a thematic overview of Pentecostalism in America. The book covers Pentecostal faith and practices, gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, trends and offshoots, and the future of American Pentecostalism, as well as its deep roots in American popular culture, placing it in context within the larger narrative of American religious history. An indispensible introduction to Pentecostalism, rich with insights for experienced readers, Pentecostals in America is an essential study of a vibrant religious movement. ARLENE M. SÁNCHEZ WALSH

The Future of Mainline Protestantism in America

JAMES HUDNUT-BEUMLER AND MARK SILK, EDITORS

“Mainline Protestantism never outgrew its ethnic families of origin, and it suffered a breathtaking fall from 50 percent to 10 percent of the population. Yet it remains a constructive and influential force in American life. This splendid book lucidly, cogently, and judiciously captures both sides of this story and picture, making a valuable contribution.” —Gary Dorrien, Columbia University

In this volume, experts in American religious history and the sociology of religion examine the decline of mainline Protestantism over the past half century and assess its future. The book argues that the mainline Protestant movement will continue to be a vital remnant in a culture torn between the contending forces of secularism and evangelicalism. JAMES HUDNUT-BEUMLER

This collection of essays reflects how modern economics has been shaped by Joseph Stiglitz. The contributions to this volume, all penned by high-profile authors who have been guided by or collaborated with Stiglitz over the last five decades, span microeconomics, macroeconomics, inequality, development, law and economics, and public policy, touching on many of the central debates and discoveries of the field and providing insights on the directions that academic economics could take in the future.

Climate Change

The Science of Global Warming and Our Energy Future Second edition

EDMOND A. MATHEZ AND JASON E. SMERDON

This second edition of Climate Change is an accessible and comprehensive guide to the science behind global warming. Exquisitely illustrated, the text is geared toward students at a variety of levels. Edmond A. Mathez and Jason E. Smerdon provide a broad, informative introduction to the science that underlies our understanding of the climate system and the effects of human activity on the warming of our planet.

“A superb textbook, easily one of the best currently available. Very few texts are written as thoughtfully as this one. Mathez and Smerdon hit a home run!” —Scott Mania, cofounder and chairman, Climate Science Legal Defense Fund

Mathez and Smerdon describe the roles that the atmosphere and ocean play in our climate, introduce the concept of radiation balance, and explain climate changes that occurred in the past. They also detail the human activities that influence the climate, such as greenhouse-gas and aerosol emissions and deforestation, as well as the effects of natural phenomena. Climate Change concludes with a look toward the future, discussing climate-model projections, exploring the economic and technological realities of energy production, and presenting a view of the global-warming challenge through the lens of risk. Each chapter features profiles of scientists who advanced our understanding of the material discussed. This new edition expands on the first edition’s presentation of scientific concepts, making it ideal for classroom use for a wide swath of undergraduate and masters students with both science and nonscience backgrounds.

Immigration Policy in the Age of Punishment Detention, Deportation, and Border Control

DAVID C. BROTHERTON AND PHILIP KRETSEDEMAS, EDITORS “One of the more thorough efforts to draw important connections between mainstream aspects of U.S. criminal justice—such as hyper-incarceration and the self-reinforcing, self-fulfilling ‘tough on crime’ approaches—and the criminalization of immigration.” —David Androff, Arizona State University

Immigration Policy in the Age of Punishment takes a critical, interdisciplinary, and transnational look at current issues surrounding immigration enforcement. Contributors connect neoliberal governance, global labor markets, and the national obsession with securing borders. The book recasts deportation, detention, and border-control policies in the United States and worldwide in terms of a decades-long “age of punishment.” DAVID C. BROTHERTON

The Empire Remains Shop

COOKING SECTIONS (DANIEL FERNÁNDEZ PASCUAL AND ALON SCHWABE)

With a foreword by Elizabeth A. Povinelli

“Empire shops” were first developed in London in the 1920s to teach the British to consume foodstuffs from the colonies and overseas territories. Although none of the stores ever opened, they were intended to make previously unfamiliar produce and products—sultanas from Australia, oranges from Palestine, cloves from Zanzibar, and rum from Jamaica—available in the British Isles. The Empire Remains Shop speculates on the possibility and implications of selling back the remains of the British Empire in London today. CONTRIBUTORS INCLUDE:

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

Based on a public installation in London in the fall of 2016, the book catalogs and develops the installation’s critical program of discussions, performances, dinners, installations, and screenings hosted at 91–93 Baker Street. The pieces in this book use food to trace new geographies across the present and future of our postcolonial planet. Structured as a franchise agreement, The Empire Remains Shop lays out some of the landscapes, imaginaries, economies, and aesthetics that future iterations of the shop would need to address in order to think through political counterstructures for a better distributed, hyperglobalized world. COOKING SECTIONS (DANIEL FERNÁNDEZ PASCUAL & ALON SCHWABE ) is a London-based duo of spatial practitioners. They

explore the systems that organize the world through food. Using installation, performance, and mapping, their research-based practice operates within the overlap among visual arts, architecture, and geopolitics. They lecture internationally and lead an architecture studio at the Royal College of Art in London that investigates the financialization of the environment.

Today, weather extremes brought about by anthropogenic climate change pose relentless cognitive and imaginative challenges. Beyond news media, what are the cultural registers of this phenomenon? How can artistic and literary engagements with de-stabilizing natural patterns summon new planetary imaginaries—reorienting perspectives on humanity’s position within the environment?

A Year Without a Winter brings together science fiction, history, visual art, and exploration. Inspired by the literary ‘dare’ that would give birth to Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and the utopian architecture of Paolo Soleri, it reframes the relationship among climate, crisis, and creation. The 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora, on the Indonesian island of Sumbawa, enveloped the globe in a cloud of ash By 1816, remembered as the ‘year without a summer,’ the northern hemisphere was plunged into cold and darkness. Amidst unseasonal frosts, violent thunderstorms, and a general atmosphere of horror, Shelley began a work of science fiction that continues to shape attitudes to emerging science, technology, and environmental futures. Two hundred years later, in 2016, the hottest year on historical record, four renowned science-fiction authors were invited to the experimental town of Arcosanti, Paolo Soleri’s prototype for arcology, to respond to our present crisis. A Year Without a Winter presents their stories alongside critical essays, extracts from Shelley’s masterpiece, and dispatches from expeditions to extreme geographies. Broad and ambitious in scope, this book is a collective thought experiment retracing an inverted path through narrative extremes.

Unhoused

Adorno and the Problem of Dwelling MATT WAGGONER

TABLE OF CONTENTS

Preface Introduction 1. Homelessness 2. Exteriors 3. No Man’s Lands 4. Property Relations Conclusion

Unhoused: Adorno and the Problem of Dwelling is the first book-length study of Theodor Adorno as a philosopher of housing. Treating his own experience of exile as emblematic of late-modern life, Adorno observed that twentieth-century dwelling had been rendered “impossible” by nativism, by the decimations of war, and, in the postwar period, by housing’s increasingly thorough assimilation into private property. Adorno’s position on the meaning and prospects for adequate dwelling—a concept he never wrote about systematically but nevertheless returned to frequently—was not that some invulnerable state of home or dwelling should be revived. Rather, Adorno believed that the only responsible approach to housing was to cultivate an ethic of displacement, to learn “how not to be at home in one’s home.”

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

Unhoused tracks four figurations of troubled dwelling in Adorno’s texts—homelessness, no-man’s-lands, the nature theater, and the ironic property relation—and reads them as timely interventions and challenges for today’s architecture, housing, and senses of belonging. Entangled as we are in juridical and financial frameworks that adhere to a different logic, these figurations ask what it means to organize, design, build, and cohabit in ways that enliven nonexclusive relations to ourselves, others, objects, and place.

The National Movement: The First Phase, till 1918 deals with popular Indian resistance to colonial rule, a special position being given to the Revolt of 1857–58; its nature and legacy; the rise of national consciousness and the factors leading to it; the movement for social reform; and political awakening among the middle classes. It examines the critique of British rule by early economic nationalists as well as the foundation and development of the Indian National Congress, the Partition of Bengal, the opposition to it and the rift within the Congress, and the rise of violence. It also considers the effect of British measures of 1909 and 1911 on the National Movement, the Congress–Muslim League Pact of 1916, the Home Rule Movement, and, finally, Gandhiji’s arrival and the agitations of 1917–18.

Domestic workers have become a significant workforce in all large cities and even in small towns in India. The papers in this volume address issues concerning specificities of domestic work alongside the intersections of gender, class, and caste, including the reluctance and discomfort in accepting domestic workers as “workers,” alternative approaches to unionizing, and the specific experiences in organizing taking up the challenge of negotiating personal relations. A critical analysis of state policies and regulation of domestic work alongside specific issues of legal intervention is also attempted—both specific to existing legislation as well as in the broad framework of labor as well as women’s rights. This study emphasizes the need to locate undervaluation and poor status of domestic workers in the devaluation of house work within capitalist development.

ROY GRUNDMANN, EDITOR

CONTRIBUTORS INCLUDE:

Gertrud Koch • Marc Siegel • Michelle Langford • Christine N. Brinckmann • Caryl Flinn • Gerd Gemünden • David Pendleton • Roy Grundmann • Fatima Naqvi • Ed Dimendberg

This volume traces Schroeter’s career as a filmmaker from early and rarely discussed works such as Salome (1971) and Willow Springs (1973) to his late 1970s breakout hits and later, complex, and mature art-house productions such as The Rose King (1986), Malina (1991), and Nuit de Chien (2008). The volume is supplemented by Schroeter’s own writings and conversations and includes an interview with his long-time collaborator Elfi Mikesch as well as an authoritative and completely updated filmography. ROY GRUNDMANN

The volume also includes an annotated filmography by Stefan Drößler; an interview with Elfi Mikesch; and a conversation between Werner Schroeter and Michel Foucault.

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

In a four-decade-long career that generated more than forty films and numerous stage productions, Werner Schroeter became one of the most important directors in Germany and Europe since the late 1960s. After making a flurry of short films in a climate of feverish artistic experimentation and political upheaval, Schroeter soon gained recognition for Eika Katappa (1969) and The Death of Maria Malibran (1971), early mature works showcasing avant-garde performance as iconoclastic expression of rebellion and pathos. Following a decade of uncompromising experimental work, his deeply humanist features Il Regno di Napoli (1979) and Palermo or Wolfsburg (1980) brought him broader success. Yet Schroeter maintained his reputation as an enfant terrible of the German cultural scene with controversial stagings of operas and plays and with smartly observed documentaries on art, film, and politics.

Staging Revolution

Artistry and Aesthetics in Model Beijing Opera during the Cultural Revolution XING FAN

Staging Revolution refutes the deep-rooted notion that art overtly in the service of politics is by definition devoid of artistic merit. As a prominent component shaping the culture of the Cultural Revolution, model Beijing Opera (jingju) is the epitome of art used for political ends. Arguing against commonly accepted interpretations, Xing Fan demonstrates that in a performance of model jingju, political messages could only be realized through the most rigorously formulated artistic choices and conveyed by performers possessing exceptional techniques. “This fascinating study is groundbreaking and timely. Xing Fan masterfully demonstrates how the creative choices made by playwrights, directors, musicians, actors, and designers intersected with one

another in creating an aesthetics of the model theater during the Cultural Revolution. A must-read for anyone interested in Chinese literature and drama, theater studies, and comparative literature.” —Xiaomei Chen, University of California, Davis

Fan contextualizes model jingju at the intersection of history, artistry, and aesthetics. Integral to jingju’s interactions with politics are the practitioners’ constant artistic experimentation to accommodate the modern stories and characters within the jingju framework and the eventual formation of a new sense of beauty. Therefore, a thorough understanding of model jingju demands close attention to how the artists resolved actual production problems, which is a critical perspective missing in earlier studies. This book provides exactly this much-needed dimension of analysis by scrutinizing the decisions made in the real, practical context of bringing dramatic characters to life on stage and by examining how major artistic elements interacted with each other, sometimes harmoniously, sometimes antagonistically. Such an approach necessarily places jingju artists center stage. Making use of first-person accounts of the creative process, including numerous interviews conducted by the author, Fan presents a new appreciation of a lived experience that, on a harrowing journey of coping with political interference, was also filled with inspiration and excitement.

Crime and the Chinese Dream EDITED BY BØRGE BAKKEN

Although official propaganda emphasizes the Chinese Dream as the dream of all Chinese, the opportunities of achieving prosperity by legal means are distributed unequally. Crime and the Chinese Dream reveals how people on the margins of Chinese society find their way to the Chinese Dream through illegal or deviant behaviors. The case studies in this book include corrupt doctors in public hospitals in Beijing, fraudsters in a village called “cake uncles,” illegal motorcycle taxi drivers in Guangzhou, drug users being “reeducated” in detention centers, and internet addicts who are treated as criminals by the system. Despite the patriotic and collectivistic tint of the official dream metaphor, the contributors to this volume show that the Chinese Dream is essentially a state capitalist dream, which is embedded within the problems and opportunities of capitalism, as well as a dream of control. “An original and important contribution to comparative

Returning Home with Glory

Chinese Villagers Around the Pacific, 1849 to 1949 MICHAEL WILLIAMS

Employing the classic Chinese saying “returning home with glory” (man zai rong gui) as the title, Michael Williams highlights the importance of return and home in the history of the connections established and maintained between villagers in the Pearl River Delta and various Pacific ports from the time of the Californian and Australian gold rushes to the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

Conventional scholarship on Chinese migration tends to privilege nation-state factors or concepts that are dependent on national boundaries. Such approaches are more concerned with the migrants’ settlement in the destination country, downplaying the awkward fact that the majority of the overseas Chinese (huaqiao) originally intended to (and eventually did) return to their home villages (qiaoxiang). Williams goes back to the basics by considering the strong influence exerted by the family and the home village on those who first set out in order to give a better appreciation of how and why many modest communities in southern China became more modern and affluent. He also gives a voice to those who never left their villages (women in particular). Designed as a single case study, this work presents detailed research based on the more than eighty villages of the Long Du district (near Zhongshan City in Guangdong Province), as well as the three major destinations—Sydney, San Francisco, and Honolulu—of the huaqiao who came from this region. Out of this analysis of what truly mattered to the villagers, the choices they had and made, and what constituted success and failure in their lives, a sympathetic portrayal of the huaqiao emerges.

Ulaanbaatar Beyond Water and Grass

A Guide to the Capital of Mongolia M. A. ALDRICH

Ulaanbaatar Beyond Water and Grass is the first book in the English language that takes the visitors to an in-depth exploration of the capital of Mongolia. In the first section of the book, M. A. Aldrich paints a detailed portrait of the history, religion, and architecture of Ulaanbaatar with reference to how the city evolved from a monastic settlement to a communist-inspired capital and finally to a major city of free-wheeling capitalism and Tammany Hall politics. The second section of the book offers the reader a tour of different sites within the city and beyond, bringing back to life the human dramas that have played themselves out on the stage of Ulaanbaatar.

lived and worked in Asia for nearly thirty years. He has previously published The Search for a Vanishing Beijing: A Guide to China’s Capital Through the Ages and The Perfumed Palace: Islam’s Journey from Mecca to Peking in addition to numerous articles on Chinese and Mongolian law.

Where most guide books often lightly discuss the capital, Ulaanbaatar Beyond Water and Grass: A Guide to the Capital of Mongolia reveals much that remains hidden from the temporary visitor and even from the long-term resident. Writing in a quirky, idiosyncratic style, the author shares his appreciation and delight in this unique urban setting—indeed, in all things Mongolian. The book finally does justice to one of the most neglected cultural capitals in Asia.

This groundbreaking volume captures and analyzes the exhilarating and at times disorienting experience when scientists, government officials, educators, and the general public in East Asia tried to come to terms with the introduction of Western biological and medical sciences to the region. The nexus of gender and health is a compelling theme, for this is an area in which private lives and personal characteristics encounter the interventions of public policies. The nine empirically based studies by scholars of history of medicine, sociology, anthropology, and STS (science, technology, and society), spanning Japan, Korea, China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong from the 1870s to the present, demonstrate just how tightly concerns with gender and health have been woven into the enterprise of modernization and nation building throughout the long twentieth century.

Buddhist Visual Cultures, Rhetoric, and Narrative in Late Burmese Wall Paintings ALEXANDRA GREEN

Step into a Burmese temple built between the late seventeenth and early nineteenth centuries and you are surrounded by a riot of color and imagery. The majority of the highly detailed wall paintings displays Buddhist biographical narratives, inspiring the devotees to follow the Buddha’s teachings. Alexandra Green goes one step further to consider the temples and their contents as a whole, arguing that the wall paintings mediate the relationship between the architecture and the main Buddha statues in the temples. These temples were a cohesively articulated and represented Burmese Buddhist world to which the devotees belonged. Green’s visits to more than 160 sites with identifiable subject matter form the basis of this richly illustrated volume, which draws upon art historical, anthropological, and religious studies methodologies to analyze the wall paintings and elucidate the contemporary religious, political, and social concepts that drove the creation of this lively art form.

The Cinema of Hou Hsiao-hsien Second edition JAMES UDDEN

Taiwan is a peculiar place resulting in a peculiar cinema, with Hou Hsiao-hsien being its most remarkable product. Hou’s signature long and static shots almost invite critics to give auteurist readings of his films, often privileging the analysis of cinematic techniques at the expense of the context from which Hou emerges. In this pioneering study, James Udden argues instead that the Taiwanese experience is the key to understanding Hou’s art. The convoluted history of Taiwan in the last century has often rendered fixed social and political categories irrelevant. Changing circumstances have forced the people in Taiwan to be hyperaware of how imaginary identity—above all, national identity—is. In this new edition, Udden charts a new chapter in the evolving art of Hou, whose latest film, The Assassin, earned him the Best Director Award at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015. Hou breaks new ground in turning the classic wuxia genre into a vehicle to express his unique insight into the working of history. JAMES UDDEN

Depictions within a movie of either filmmaking or film watching are hardly novel, but the dramatic expansion of the reach of the metacinematic into contemporary Chinese cinemas is nothing short of remarkable. To G. Andrew Stuckey, the prevalence of metacinematic features forms the basis of a discourse on film arising from the films themselves. Such a discourse, in turn, outlines the boundaries of the possible for film in China as aesthetic or sociopolitical practice. Metacinema also draws our attention to the presence of the audience, people actively responding to a film. In elucidating the affective responses elicited by the metacinematic mode in the viewers, Stuckey argues that metacinema reflects ways of being in the world that audiences may take up for themselves.

Despite recent advances in pharmacotherapy, psychosocial casework, and early interventions, improving the treatment of psychotic disorders is still a major challenge for mental health professionals. The coaching approach discussed in this book specifically addresses that difficulty. The book starts with a short introduction to psychotic disorders, the principles of psychosocial intervention, and the challenges inherent in such interventions. It then provides a systematic review of the lifestyle redesigning approach. There is also a step-by-step guide to conducting group intervention sessions using the coaching approach.

Armenian illustrated manuscripts are some of the most lavishly decorated codices of the Christian churches from the Middle East. The Gospels are paramount among these, primarily because of the Armenian community’s respect for the sacred texts, revering them in the same way that Greek and Russian Christians regard holy icons. Such texts were often carried into war by Armenian rulers and individual copies of the Gospels were given sacred names and believed to hold miraculous powers.

Lettner immersed himself in the natural world, vividly depicting his vision on paper—whether representing the vast ocean, the sun’s warmth, or an endless line of mountains and clouds. As an influential artist in Central Europe, Lettner also was attracted to traditional art forms from the East, particularly the shan shui philosophy of landscape painting. He explored the artistic world through a language that combined the Chinese aesthetics of the “void” and watercolor landscapes.

Facing Up to Low Productivity Growth

JEROMIN ZETTELMEYER AND ADAM S. POSEN, EDITORS

Labor-productivity growth in the United States and other advanced countries has slowed dramatically since the mid-2000s, a major factor in their economic stagnation and political turmoil. Economists have been debating the causes of the slowdown and possible remedies for some years. Unaddressed in this discussion is what happens if the slowdown is not reversed.

In this volume, a dozen renowned scholars analyze the effect of sustained lower productivity growth on public finances, social protection, trade, capital flows, wages, inequality, and, ultimately, politics in the advanced industrial world. They conclude that slow productivity growth could lead to unpredictable and possibly dangerous new problems, aggravating inequality and increasing concentration of market power. Facing Up to Low Productivity Growth also proposes ways that countries can cope with these consequences.

Economic growth, inflation, and interest rates have declined in Asia, just as they have in the United States and Europe. Sustaining Economic Growth in Asia explores the relevance to several Asian economies of the diagnosis known as “secular stagnation.” Leading experts on the region discuss the fiscal- and monetary-policy challenges of reviving growth without generating domestic financial imbalances. The essays on innovation, demographics, spillovers, and various policy proposals are accompanied by case studies focusing on Japan, South Korea, China, India, and Indonesia. JÉRÉMIE COHEN-SETTON,

Yiddish literature emerged from World War II severely crippled, weakened by the deaths of its writers and readers. But those who survived made immense efforts to revive and foster culture in their mother tongue. It is widely believed that, outside the Soviet Union, there was little activity in Eastern Europe after the war. But in Poland there was a small but dynamic center of Jewish life. In this book, Magdalena Ruta considers the literary output of this community of survivors, created or published in postwar Poland to 1968. MAGDALENA RUTA

Unintended Revolution describes the ways in which development performed in and by nongovernmental organizations in an Indian metropolis serves as a tool for reinforcing and improving social standing.

She concludes that the ineffectiveness of development lies in the interest of this group and as such reflects neoliberal policies more broadly. ANNA ROMANOWICZ

This volume explores cultural representations of friendship in literary fiction, nonfiction, film, and other visual narratives. Collectively addressing general questions such as: “What is a friend? What is friendship for? And what are its varieties, limits, and costs?” the essays examine a wide range of topics: friendship in theory from the ancient Greeks to poststructuralist thinkers, friendship from the perspective of gender, intergenerational and interspecies friendship, queer friendship, and friendship between historical figures, and between fictional characters conflicted by class or ethnoreligious divisions.

To what extent do art museums in Australia mirror global changes in the museum world? What museum features are particular to Australia? What challenges do Australian museums face today? What is their relationship with history, identity, and politics? Why and how are they growing and expanding? In this book, museum directors, curators, and researchers from around Australia talk about their institutions and shed light on the diverse and vibrant ecology of museums across this vast country, both historically and today. The book discusses the nature of contemporary museums of art, their common and specific features, and their contexts, relations, challenges, and plans.

This book is a study of Elizabeth Jennings (1926-2001), one of the most remarkable poetic voices in England in the second half of the twentieth century. Primarily a prolific lyricist and religious poet, she also published critical prose bespeaking her fascination with the potential of poetry and its capacity to reach out toward transcendence. Anna Walczuk considers a substantial body of Jennings’s poems in light of her Christian beliefs and profound spiritual experience, calling attention to Jennings’s emphasis on the intrinsic link between poetry and mysticism and her deep-seated conviction of the unique power of poetic language.

Flawed Capitalism

The Anglo-American Condition and Its Resolution DAVID COATES

In Flawed Capitalism, David Coates draws on his vast experience of economy and society in both the U.S. and the UK to examine the economic and social problems currently besetting each. Building an argument around the rise and fall of important social settlements, Flawed Capitalism traces the history of the two economies through, first, their New Deal and, then, their Reaganite periods—ones labeled differently in the UK but similarly marked by the development first of a Keynesian welfare state and then a Thatcherite neoliberal one.

It is with the weaknesses and downsides of the Reagan/Thatcher years that Flawed Capitalism is primarily concerned, showing how the underlying fragility of a settlement based on the weakening of organized labor and the extensive deregulation of business culminated in the financial crisis of 2008. The legacies of that crisis haunt us still—a squeezed middle class, further embedded poverty, deepened racial divisions, an adverse work-life balance for two-income families, and a growing crisis of housing and employment for the young. Flawed Capitalism deals with each in turn, and makes the case for the transatlantic creation of a new social settlement—a less flawed capitalism—one based on greater degrees of income equality and social justice.

Europe and Northern Ireland’s Future

Europe’s Brexit

MARY C. MURPHY

TIM OLIVER

The implications of Brexit for Northern Ireland are profound, given its history and geographical position. Mary Murphy offers a detailed and in-depth analysis of Northern Ireland’s relationship with the EU; the role the EU has played in rebuilding the region after “the Troubles”; and the challenges and opportunities that Brexit might offer Northern Ireland in terms of both its fragile politics and its economy, as well as future Brexit deals that might have to be done with the border between the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland has long occupied a greater political space than might seem warranted. This space may yet again become the most hotly contested and divisive topic in future Brexit negotiations.

The Brexit debate in the UK focuses almost exclusively on the UK’s own position within the European Union and largely ignores the reaction and opinion of the other twenty-seven member states. The UK’s negotiations will, however, involve each and every member state, as well as the EU institutions, and their past relationship with the UK will be critical for shaping any future international relations. This book offers an in-depth, ground-up analysis of the attitudes and opinions of the rest of Europe towards Brexit. Drawing on the research of country experts, the book provides essential context and insight into the likely approach of the European nations toward the UK at this historic juncture.

The Economics of Cars

The Italian Economy

The automotive sector represents more than a simple industry. Since the late nineteenth century, it has embodied the economic and technological power of nations, the lifestyle and consumption patterns of societies, and the dynamics of urban and territorial development, and it has acted as a national barometer of economic success and failure. This book explains how the car industry works and analyzes the challenges both for the sector and for the economies that rely on the industry for jobs, growth, and innovation. Fabio Cassia and Matteo Ferrazzi explore an industry that has been under severe pressure in industrialized countries for many years—factories have shut down, jobs have gone, and brands and manufacturers have disappeared—yet world production has never been so high.

Italy’s status as continental Europe’s secondlargest industrial power is often underappreciated. Vera Zamagni’s survey of the Italian economy and its modern history outlines its unique shape and structure and how human factors explain its strengths in social networks, “niche capitalism,” and well-being indicators, as well as its weaknesses reflected in regional imbalances, political instability, and banking. Focusing on economic developments since 1945, Zamagni explains how the contemporary economy is the result of history, geography, and more recent factors such as the country’s membership in the EU and changing demographic profile. Drawing upon both conventional and heterodox approaches, the book concludes with an assessment of the prospects for the Italian economy. The book provides a concise overview for students in politics, political economy, history, and economics and for professionals looking to understand recent Italian economic performance.

Capitalism, Socialism, and Property Rights

Why Market Socialism Cannot Substitute the Market MATEUSZ MACHAJ

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

The “market socialism” model seeks to imitate the functional efficiency of capitalism by simulating a competitive economy. Mateusz Machaj provides an in-depth examination of the system of ownership, or property rights, to highlight fundamental problems with market socialism.Taking a broadly Austrian perspective, he shows that the market-socialist model’s mechanism of efficiency disregards the fact that property rights are fundamental to the shaping of prices and thus the abolition of ownership in market socialism makes its mechanism of efficiency a fiction. The book offers new and original insights into the theory of competition, theories of pricing, property laws, and the relation between law and economics, as well as the economics of the market-socialism model. It will be of interest to a wide range of heterodox economists. MATEUSZ MACHAJ

Marginalism

BERT MOSSELMANS

The notion of marginalism is central to modern economic theory. Its emergence in the 1870s underpinned the change from classical economics to modern (micro-) economics. This book explores the origins of the concept, its development, and its role in modern economics and shows why the marginalist approach is much more than a set of mathematical rules. By exploring the origins and development of the marginalist approach within the history of economic thought, rather than seeking to explain it in forbidding formal terms, the book is better able to show students the wider importance of the marginalist approach in economic theory and its far-reaching societal implications in terms of the distribution of wages and capital. For anyone who has struggled with the technicalities of microeconomic theory, this approach will be warmly welcomed. BERT MOSSELMANS

The Doreen Massey Reader

BRETT CHRISTOPHERS, REBECCA LAVE,

JAMIE PECK, MARION WERNER

Doreen Massey (1944–2016) was one of the most influential geographers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Her ideas on space, region, identity, ethics, and capital transformed the field, while also attracting a wide audience in sociology, planning, political economy, cultural studies, gender studies, and beyond. Massey’s claim that “geography matters” was not a dry defense of disciplinary turf but a a rallying cry. This collection of Massey’s writings brings together for the first time her formative contributions, showcasing the continuing relevance of her ideas to current debates on financialization, globalization, immigration, and nationalism, among other topics. With introductions and explanatory notes from the editors, the collection provides an unrivaled introduction to the range and depth of Massey’s contributions. DOREEN MASSEY

The U.S. Federal Reserve has played a key role in the world economy for one hundred years. Its structure is unique among 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 its 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. is an adjunct history professor and

Translation and Modernization in East Asia in the Nineteenth and Early Twentieth Centuries LAWRENCE WANG-CHI WONG, EDITOR

This volume aims at studying the role played by translation in the modernization process of the East Asian countries. In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, many people saw the West as a model for modernization and hence modernization in East Asia was more often than not taken as a process of learning from or even imitating the West. In this process, translation played a crucial role, when efforts were made to import Western ideas, knowledge, concepts and practices. The papers in this volume study and explain the various translation phenomena in the modernization processes of China, Korea, and Japan. LAWRENCE WANG-CHI WONG

is chairman and professor

of humanities at the Department of Translation, and director of the Research Centre for Translation, the Chinese University of Hong Kong. His major research areas are modern Chinese literature, Hong Kong studies, and translation history of early-modern and modern China. He has single-authored 14 books and over 130 academic articles and book chapters in these fields. He is also the executive editor of Renditions and chief editor of the Journal of Translation Studies and Studies in Translation History.

A Comparison of the Russian and Chinese Revolutions LUCIEN BIANCO Translated by Krystyna Horko “A wise and humane book, one attuned to the ironies of revolution, a testament to a lifetime of study and reflection.” —S. A. Smith, professor of history, University of Oxford

China’s ascent has given its revolution a better image than that of its Russian counterpart. Yet the two have a great deal in common. Lucien Bianco highlights the similarities: the all-powerful bureaucracy; the overexploitation of the peasantry, which triggered two of the worst famines of the twentieth century; control over writers and artists; and repression and labor camps. “This book is not only scholarly but extremely vivid. There is no doubt that this work will mark an epoch in twentieth-century historiography.” —Marie-Claire Bergère, professor emeritus, National Institute of Oriental Languages and Civilizations LUCIEN BIANCO

Based on rare firsthand historical data, Wang Ke presents an analysis of East Turkestan from the perspective of Islamic social structure, the origin and evolution of thoughts on national revolution, the internal structure of the independence movement, and the power structure of the republic, international relations, and international politics. Since it was first published in 1995, the original Japanese edition of this book has been recognized as the most authoritative research work on the independence movement of East Turkestan so far. The English edition of this book has been greatly revised and enriched to provide valuable references for the prominent issues of Xinjiang today.

Handbook of Direct Democracy in Central and Eastern Europe after 1989 MARIA MARCZEWSKA-RYTKO, EDITOR

Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the political history of central and eastern Europe has mainly been the story of the rise, consolidation, transformation, and struggles of new democratic regimes and societies. The Handbook of Direct Democracy in Central and Eastern Europe after 1989 offers an instructive approach to that history focusing on the relevance of the practices and institutions of direct democracy. It collects twenty political analyses of direct democracy in twenty central and eastern European countries after 1989.

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

The aim of the book is the holistic and interdisciplinary political analysis of direct democracy since 1989. The case studies make diagnoses of the state of democratic processes in these countries and present and analyze institutions of direct democracy. In addition, the book provides an analytical and comparative examination of the implementation processes of direct democratic practices and solutions at the national and local levels. The collection of case studies shows the significance of direct democracy in the formal-legal and practical dimension of central and eastern European countries and points at the use of direct democratic instruments as expressions of political awareness in these societies. The case studies emphasize the significant connection of the accession process to the European Union and the development of direct democracy in these countries. MARIA MARCZEWSKA-RYTKO

Comparison is an essential research method in the social sciences. This book helps students to understand comparison as an academic instrument, to grasp its necessity and its effective purpose for research. For that reason, Leonardo Morlino answers three deceptively simple questions: why compare; what to compare; and how to compare. Doing so, he not only considers the comparative tradition but also takes into account methodological innovations of the last two decades.

“Chris Webb is a public historian in the true meaning of the word. This book will be a much valued addition to the knowledge about one of the most horrific crimes in the history of humankind.” —Robert Parzer, cofounder of the EU project Gedenkort-T4.eu

This book provides a chronological account of the Auschwitz concentration camp from the camp’s beginning to its liberation. Chris Webb gives a thorough and deeply disturbing overview of all aspects of Auschwitz and its many satellite camps. The book contains a vast collection of photographs and documents, some never before shown in public. “The book will be useful for both those coming to the Holocaust for the first time and those seasoned researchers like me, who have read many books on Auschwitz.”

“An extensive reportage on Bosnia and its problems; an essay on the consequences of war; a personal and passionate description.” —Daniel Gascón, Letras Libres

This revealing book provides a new picture of Bosnia, twenty years after the war. To some extent an account of rural Bosnia, in particular of the Drina River Valley, which bore the brunt of ethnic cleansing, the book aims to overall provide a portrait of modern Bosnia while also looking critically at the workings of the international community. It starts from that isolated region of open wounds to meet a cast of characters that range from displaced persons and victims to activists, diplomats, and inhabitants of an underground world in Sarajevo for LGBT and youth, showing a country of so-far failed springs.

This book considers the crisis of the European integration project as seen from the vantage point of people’s movements across and to the European continent. But why should the issue of refugees or of migration have anything to do with the dynamics of the integration or disintegration of the European Union? How did refugee protection become so controversial as to usher in a crisis of its own? This collection engages with these questions by focusing on the construction of the crisis narrative, offering an insight into distinctly European perspectives on and analyses of political responses to refugees, migration, and economic challenges. The aim of the volume is to provide an empirical and thematic context for understanding the link between refugee migration and the overpowering perception of Europe in crisis.

When public protests first began in Ukraine at the end of 2013, the failed promise of the Orange Revolution was still fresh in the minds of many Ukrainians. However, unlike in the aftermath of 2004–2005, the political and military crises ignited by the Euromaidan brought profound changes not only for Ukraine but also for neighboring states and Europe more generally, calling into question the durability of the post–Cold War world order.

Why and How Ukrainian Social Capital Increased after the Revolution of Dignity SOPHIE FALSINI Foreword by Susann Worschech

“Sophie Falsini’s book will prove to be extraordinarily helpful for researchers and practitioners alike who are concerned with the development of civil society and democracy in Ukraine.” —Susann Worschech, European University Viadrina

Ukraine has been shaken by both sociopolitical disorders and a deep humanitarian emergency. Sophie Falsini explores the way and the extent to which events since late 2013—the Euromaidan revolution, the annexation of Crimea, and the war in the East—have transformed civil society, looking at organizations active in providing help to internally displaced people to show how Ukraine’s “civil society 2.0” saw the rise of grassroots and voluntary movements that triggered social mobilization.

Ukraine drew significant media attention after the 2013–2014 Revolution of Dignity and the subsequent undeclared war waged by Russia. Building Ukraine from Within offers an inside look at the recent developments in Ukraine and poses the question of whether transition from externally to internally driven development is possible. Anton Oleinik argues that Ukraine is currently going through a revolutionary period aimed at building a nation-state and its aftermath and it is yet to be seen if a current surge in volunteerism and bottom-up civic initiatives will lead to the emergence of a viable and sustainable democratic system.

Since Ukraine’s 2013–2014 Revolution of Dignity, Western attention has focused on conflicts related to the country’s “Europeanization.” A parallel major transformation with little relation to the EU—a far-ranging local governance and territorial reform that Ukraine’s first post-Euromaidan government started in 2014—has received much less attention. It redefines not only Ukrainian center-periphery interactions but also state-society as well as governmentcitizen relations. This volume presents five research papers on Ukraine’s decentralization, focusing on specific problems as well as repercussions of this multifaceted process and covering issues ranging from fiscal governance to party politics.

The February 2015 Assassination of Boris Nemtsov and the Flawed Trial of His Alleged Killers

An Exploration of Russia’s “Crime of the 21st Century” JOHN B. DUNLOP

John B. Dunlop provides a thorough examination of the nine-month-long trial of Boris Nemtsov’s alleged killers. He considers the obstacles in determining what precisely happened shortly before midnight on February 27, 2015, on a bridge located a mere stone’s throw from the Kremlin, in an area under the active surveillance of the Russian Federal Protective Service. Dunlop contends that the actual organizers of the crime remain at large as does the assassination’s shadowy mastermind. JOHN B. DUNLOP

This book assesses the history of IR during Soviet times and recent developments—both substantive and institutional—in order to assess the state of the discipline in Russia and to better comprehend Russian foreign policy.

Even before the Ukrainian crisis, neither Russia nor the EU was content with their relationship. Vasile Rotaru analyzes EU-Russia relations with a particular emphasis on the impact of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) on Moscow’s relations with Brussels. He argues that the EaP represented a turning point and that Russia inadvertently propelled the EaP by aiming to keep the former Soviet republics close via assertive, aggressive policy in the “near abroad,” causing Russia’s neighbors to look elsewhere for support.

than pick up this book.”

—Fabienne Bossuyt, Ghent University

—Serhii Plokhii, Harvard University

To what extent has EU democracy promotion in Central Asia been successful? And, to the extent that it was successful, why? Aijan Sharshenova undertakes two original case studies into the stable and rich authoritarian Kazakhstan as well as much poorer Kyrgyzstan. By contrasting the success of democracy promotion in two countries with different strategic importance for the EU, she provides valuable insights into how nonnormative interests interfere with normatively driven policies.

This book dissects—from both philosophical and empirical viewpoints—the challenges that post-Soviet societies face. With a focus on Ukraine, Mikhail Minakov describes how former Soviet nations try to reinvent democracy and capitalism while concurrently dealing with poverty and inequality and coming to terms with complicated collective memories and individual pasts. He suggests novel perspectives on how Western and postcommunist Europe may be able to create a pan-European common space. MIKHAIL MINAKOV

The twentieth century began with a deep identity crisis of European parliamentarianism, pluralism, rationalism, individualism, and liberalism—and a following political revolt against the West’s emerging open societies and their ideological foundation. Leonid Luks’s essays deal with the various causes and results of these Russian and German anti-Western revolts for twentiethcentury Europe. The book touches upon the development of the post-Soviet Russian regime, the geopolitical trap in which Poland—constrained by its two powerful neighbors—was caught for centuries, and the relationship that all three countries of Central and Eastern Europe’s “fateful triangle” had with Judaism and the Jews.

Katherine Mansfield is a writer who is positioned on a number of different borders and boundaries: between modernism and postcolonialism; between the short story and other genres; between Europe and New Zealand. The essays in this volume consider the reception of Mansfield’s work worldwide to argue that global paradigms of world literature fail to understand voices from the margins.

Translation studies have traditionally been known to be interdisciplinary. What better term to sum this up than boundaries? What are the boundaries translators and interpreters have to deal with? How do they relate to translation studies in general? Essays in this collection look at the constraints and limits under which translators and translations operate, or showcase the role translation and interpreting play in overcoming social or political boundaries.

Chicago Architecture and the Social Imaginary

Children of Immigrants in US-American Literature

KAI HORSTMANNSHOFF

RÜDIGER HEINZE

The Loop: Chicago Architecture and the Social Imaginary discusses the social function of architecture. Through close readings of skyscrapers, opera houses, and urban parks in Chicago, Kai Horstmannshoff develops a theoretical framework that allows his readers to understand architectural styles as concrete expressions of historically shifting conceptions of the human, matter, space, and time. As such, the book appeals to both a general public interested in exploring what architecture means and experts working in the fields of aesthetic theory, art history, and cultural studies.

In the past decades, children of immigrants have drawn increased attention not only in press and media but also in a number of academic fields, among them sociology, history, and ethnology. Surprisingly, literary and cultural studies have been somewhat reluctant. While there is work on individual authors or, at the most, particular ethnic groups, comparative approaches are rare. This monograph aims to amend this. It provides an extensive discussion of U.S. literature about children of immigrants, comparing different ethnic groups and different literary and historical contexts.

The Fall and Rise of a Global Borough BENJAMIN SHEPARD AND MARK NOONAN

This study is a concise introduction to Bruno Latour’s Actor-Network Theory and its application in a literary analysis of urban narratives of the twenty-first century. Are these literary documentaries a contemporary solution to reporting an ever-evasive reality? If so, how do they embody “matters of concern” as Latour would have put it, laying bare modern-day “actors” and “networks” rather than documenting mere “matters of fact”? Prachi More describes how these narratives function as sites of knowledge production and presents an interdisciplinary framework that addresses concerns and questions of epistemology, the sociology of knowledge, and urban and documentary studies.

Brooklyn has all the features of a “global borough”: it is a base of immigrant labor and ethnically diverse communities, of social and cultural capital, of global transportation, cultural production, and policy innovation. At once a model of sustainable urbanization and of overdevelopment, the question is now: What will become of Global Brooklyn? Tracing the emergence of Brooklyn from village outpost to global borough, Brooklyn Tides investigates the nature and consequences of global forces that have crossed the East River and identifies alternative models for urban development in global capitalism. Benjamin Shepard and Mark Noonan provide a unique ethnographic reading of the literature, social activism, and changing tides affecting this ever-transforming space. Caroline Shepard’s photo essay of a rapidly transforming global borough accompanies this project.

Everyday articulations of music, place, urban politics, and inclusion/exclusion are powerfully present in Istanbul. This volume analyzes landscapes of music, community, and exclusion across a century and a half. An interdisciplinary group of scholars and artists presents four case studies: the rembetika, the music of the Asiks, the Zakir/Alevi tradition, and hip-hop in Beyoglu, Üsküdar, the gentrifying Sulukule neighborhood, and across the metropolis.

Education and Development in Afghanistan

Challenges and Prospects

UWE H. BITTLINGMAYER, ANNE-MARIE GRUNDMEIER, REINHART KÖSSLER, DIANA SAHRAI, AND FERESCHTA SAHRAI, EDITORS

After fifteen years of military interventions since 2003, and despite numerous development initiatives, Afghanistan is still confronted with poor security and economic conditions. At the same time, enrollment numbers in schools and universities and the number of academics have reached a historical peak. This volume investigates the tension between these ambivalent developments. Sociologists and political and cultural scientists along with development workers, educators, and artists from Germany and Afghanistan discuss the idea that education is primary for rebuilding a stable Afghan state and government.

From Creation to Archiving

DANIELA CÔRTES MADURO, EDITOR

Due to computers’ ability to combine different semiotic modes, texts no longer exclusively comprise static images and mute words. How have digital media changed the way we write and read? What methods of textual and data analysis have emerged? How do we rescue digital artifacts from obsolescence? And how can digital media be used or taught inside classrooms? These and other questions are addressed in this volume, which assembles contributions by artists, writers, scholars, and editors such as Dene Grigar, Sandy Baldwin, Carlos Reis, and Frieder Nake. They offer a multi-perspectival view on the way digital media have changed our notion of textuality. DANIELA CÔRTES MADURO

Transnationalizing Radio Research presents a theoretical and methodological guide for exploring radio’s multiple “global ages,” from its earliest years through its recent digital transformations. It offers radio scholars theoretical tools and concrete case studies for moving beyond national research frames. It gives radio practitioners inspiration for production and archiving and offers scholars from many disciplines new ways to incorporate radio’s vital voices into work on transnational institutions, communities, histories, and identities. Its links to online audio material add a rich and growing audio layer to these new explorations.

This book offers insights into the approaches of a new generation of Jewish American writers. Whether they reimagine their ancestors’ “shtetl life” or invent their own kind of Jewishness, they have a common curiosity in what makes them Jewish. Is it because most of them are third-generation Americans who don’t worry about assimilation as did their parents’ generations? If so, how does the writing of recent Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union fit into the picture? Contra Irving Howe’s prediction in 1977, Jewish American literature did not fade after immigration. It always finds new paths, drawing from the scope of Jewish life in America.

From 1990 through 2015, American literature saw the emergence of a new corpus of epilepsy metaphors that tackle the stigma of epilepsy within three areas: society, body, and language. Eleana Vaja introduces concepts such as protometaphors, relational metaphors, epileptic texts, and metastability to categorize and examine these foci further. Applying philosophy as well as “hard sciences” (i.e., mathematics, medicine, physics) to disability studies, her study of selected works by Siri Hustvedt, Thom Jones, Reif Larsen, Dennis Mahagin, Audrey Niffenegger, Rodman Philbrick, and Lauren Slater shows how epilepsy metaphors redefine the notion of the “liminal” and the “normal.”

Cultural encounters are often stylized not only as experiences of uncontrollability and unpredictability par excellence but also as challenges to planning and predicting. The history, different forms, and consequences of this phenomenon are the main issues discussed in this volume. The contributions show that chaos and control are not mutually exclusive in the “contact zone”; on the contrary, they stand in relation to each other—be it as a competence or as an interpretive scheme.

Forgeries are an omnipresent part of our culture. They are closely related to historically and culturally informed ideas of authenticity, legality, authorship, creativity, tradition, and innovation. Based on the concept of mimesis, this volume illustrates that forgeries are thus not to be understood as a negative copy or disgraced rip-off of an original but as an autonomous aesthetic practice, a creative act in itself. The contributions focus on such different implementations as faked traditions, pseudotranslations, imposters, identity theft, and hoaxes in different arts and historic contexts. Most importantly, they scrutinize the bonds and borders between original and forgery and turn out their epistemic capability.

This anthology of international scholars sheds new light on the ongoing debate around aesthetic education and aesthetic practices by exploring emerging epistemologies. Bridging perspectives from science and technology studies, aesthetic theory, praxeological approaches, and artistic research, the authors test innovative methodological approaches in order to investigate how the epistemic cultures in the arts, design, and architecture have reacted to the demanding contexts of academization, medialization, and economization of knowledge.

While concepts of Earth have a rich tradition, more recent examples show a distinct quality: Though ideas of wholeness might still be related to mythical, religious, or utopian visions of the past, “Earth” has become available as a whole. This raises several questions: How are the notions of one Earth or our planet imagined and distributed? What is the role of cultural imagination and practices of signification in the imagination of “the Earth”? Which theoretical models can be used or need to be developed to describe processes of imagining planet Earth? This collection invites a wide range of perspectives from different fields of the humanities to explore the means of imagining Earth.

In contrast to the notion of trust, which has become popular as a social phenomenon in the social sciences of late, the notion of mistrust is mostly overlooked. If at all, mistrust is investigated as the flip side of trust, as an annoying absence and a societal failure. The most pressing question always seems to be how to restore trust in the state, as well as how to foster trust in civil agents and free markets. The contributors intend to take a step back and explore what people actually do when they mistrust. Particular attention is paid to how mistrust relates to detachment, suspicion, and doubt as well as to social complexity. FLORIAN MÜHLFRIED

How are prestige and power anchored in EU-Brussels? Which performances are valued, and which are not? Pawel Lewicki’s ethnographic analysis gives insight into how different understandings of modernity and class structures reproduce national performances and stereotypes among EU civil servants. Divisions permeate both political and private life and are visible not only on the map of the city but also in the lifestyles of people living and working in EU-Brussels. In such a cultural setting the strategies applied by newcomers to the EU, Lewicki shows, reveal deeper postcolonial and (post-) imperial dynamics at the heart of the union.

Dealing with Elusive Futures

University Graduates in Urban Africa

Where the Everyday Begins

AND ELÍSIO MACAMO, EDITORS

JAMES MORROW

The time to come—as well as the exploration thereof—remains elusive for social actors and social scientists alike. The contributors to this volume accept the challenge to depict young men and women’s future-creating activities in urban contexts of sub-Saharan Africa. Very consciously, they study young graduates who have obtained a university degree and provide a vivid picture of their strategies to socially grow older by doing adulthood in contexts of great uncertainty. The examples include Burkina Faso, Guinea, Ethiopia, Mali, and Tanzania, visually enriched through pictures taken by young Malian photographers.

James Morrow uses innovative research methods to reveal the ways in which environment defines everyday life, pulling together a multitude of observations about the social and material ecologies that bind the world.

This is the first academic biography of the scientist and politician Jacob Moleschott (1822-1893). Based on a vast range of primary sources in German, Italian, Dutch, French, and Latin, it not only sheds new light on the history of materialism in the natural sciences but also shows the deep entanglement of science, politics, and popularization in nineteenth-century Europe. Applying new methods from cultural history and the history of science, Laura Meneghello focuses on processes of knowledge circulation, transnational mobility, and the role of translation in nineteenth-century science.

Congoism

Congo Discourses in the United States from 1800 to the Present JOHNNY VAN HOVE

To justify the plundering of today’s Democratic Republic of the Congo, U.S. intellectual elites have continuously produced dismissive Congo discourses. Tracing these discourses in great depth and breadth, Johnny Van Hove shows how U.S. intellectuals (and their influential European counterparts) have been using the Congo in similar fashions for their own goals. Analyzing intellectuals as diverse as W. E. B. Du Bois, Joseph Conrad, and David Van Reybrouck, the book offers a theorization of Central West Africa, a case study of normalized narratives on the “Other,” and a stirring wake-up call for contemporary writers on international history and politics.

Northern landscape is conceived and perceived as bearing specific forms of topography, light, climate, and biogeography,as site of wilderness and lived experience, imagination and the sublime. This volume of essays explores the representation of the North in landscape photography. The authors consider a diverse North: Scotland’s western isles, northern England, Europe, Siberia, and the Arctic and Nordic lands. Discussing the complexity of photographic representation, the volume argues that the northern landscape is always fluid and contested because it has been endowed with meaning through history and culture.

How have digital technologies affected the truth claims of photography? What has been the artistic response to the technological and societal transformations the digital revolution has brought about? Claus Gunti explores the widespread implications of the digital in the work of renowned photographers of the Düsseldorf School, Thomas Ruff, Andreas Gursky, and Jörg Sasse, stretching from ties to conceptual art to the development of a globalized visual culture. The study provides a model for understanding the digital revolution in photography and shows that it ought to be understood beyond a strictly technological perspective.

Cultures of Video Game Concerns

The same computer games are played by youth all over the world, and worldwide games become matters of concern in relation to children: worries rise about addiction, violence, education, time, and economy. Yet these concerns vary depending upon where they are situated: in families, legal contexts, industry, or science. They also play out differently across countries and cultures. This situated nature of computer-game concerns is generally neglected. This book, by contrast, gives a detailed mosaic of the complex and multiple everyday realities of computergame concerns in relation to children as they are variably situated throughout society and across cultures.

Kompositionen für hörbaren Raum / Compositions for Audible Space

Die frühe elektroakustische Musik und ihre Kontexte / The Early Electroacoustic Music and Its Contexts MARTHA BRECH AND RALPH PALAND, EDITORS

The integration of audible space is a central aspect of electroacoustic music. Ever since the earliest analogue days of electroacoustic music, pioneers of the genre—including Pierre Schaeffer, Iannis Xenakis, Karlheinz Stockhausen, and Luigi Nono—used special devices and methods for their compositions and refined the possibilities of integrating the sound of space into music. This anthology shows the wide spectrum of spatial practices in early electroacoustic music. They portray the practice of spatial composition in different eras and genres, contributing to a more nuanced understanding of the term “spatial music.” MARTHA BRECH,

Candyman

Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me

Candyman (1992) is almost unique in 1990s horror cinema in that it tackles its sociopolitical themes head on. The film’s hookhanded killer embodies a history of racism, miscegenation, lynching, and slavery. Jon Towlson considers how Candyman might be read both as a “return of the repressed” during the George W. Bush era and as an example of nineties neoconservative horror. He traces the project’s development from its origins as a Clive Barker short story (“The Forbidden”); discusses the importance of its real-life Cabrini-Green setting; and analyzes the film’s appropriation (and interrogation) of urban myth. The two official sequels (Candyman: Farewell to the Flesh [1995] and Candyman: Day of the Dead [1999]) are also considered. The book features an in-depth interview with Candyman’s writer-director, Bernard Rose.

When David Lynch’s film Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me, a prequel to the television series Twin Peaks, premiered at the 1992 Cannes Film Festival it was met with boos and jeers, and many fans of the show felt betrayed. A gradual wave of appreciative reappraisal was consolidated by the adoring reception bestowed on Twin Peaks: The Return in 2017. Central to this reevaluation is the realization that what Lynch had created was not a parody of soap opera and detective television but a horror movie. Lindsay Hallam argues that the horror genre aids Lynch’s presentation of protagonist Laura Palmer’s subjective experience as the incorporation of horror tropes leads to a deeper representation of a victim’s suffering and confusion. She goes on to explore how the film was an attempt by Lynch to take back ownership of the material and to examine the initial reaction and subsequent reevaluation of the film and the influence that Fire Walk with Me now has on contemporary film and popular culture.

It Follows

Daughters of Darkness

EVERT VAN LEEUWEN

JOSHUA GRIMM

KAT ELLINGER

In this study of Roger Corman’s influential first Poe picture, Evert van Leeuwen explores the narrative structure borrowed from Poe’s original story and shows how closely Richard Matheson’s script followed Poe’s theory of short fiction. He focuses on Corman’s imagery, showing how the use of specific camera angles, lenses, colors, and sound effects creates and sustains the simultaneously morbid and beautiful atmosphere of gothic decay. Finally, he situates horror icon Vincent Price’s performance in the context of the nineteenthcentury Romantic misfit and the postwar countercultural antihero, two closely related cultural identities.

Amid a recent resurgence in horror films, David Robert Mitchell’s It Follows (2014) stands out as a particularly bold entry, a horror fan’s dream come true that sparked a renewed creativity. Mitchell uses a variety of approaches to reinvent genre bromides while simultaneously embracing and challenging tropes audiences and filmmakers rely on a little too heavily. In this Devil’s Advocate, Joshua Grimm focuses on how this film helped reinvent the rules of a horror movie, particularly along the lines of genre, style, sex, and gender.

Daughters of Darkness (1971) is a vampire film like no other. Heralded as psychological high-Gothic cinema, loved for its art-house and erotic flavors, Harry Kümel's cult classic represents an important evolutionary link in the chain of femalevampire cinema. Kat Ellinger examines the film in the context of its peers and contemporaries and explores the film’s association with fairy tales, the Gothic, and fantastic tradition, as well as delving into aspects of the legend of Countess Bathory, traditional vampire lore, and much more. The book contains new and exclusive interviews with the director, Harry Kümel, and, actress and the star, Danielle Ouimet.

The Damned

Rollerball

The Damned (1963) is the most intriguing of director Joseph Losey’s British ‘journeyman’ films. A sci-fi film by a director who hated sci-fi; a Hammer production that sat on the shelf for over two years before being released with almost no publicity as the second half of a double bill. Losey was a director vocal in his dislike of depictions of physical violence, but he often made films that radiate an energy produced by a violent clash of elements. The Damned catches a series of collisions—some of them inadvertent—and traps them as if in amber. Its volatile elements include Losey the blacklisted director, Hammer the erratic British studio, Oliver Reed the ‘dangerous’ young actor, and radioactive children. Nick Riddle’s contribution to the Constellations series concentrates on historical and cultural context, place, genre, and other themes in order to try to make sense of a fascinating, underappreciated film.

Rollerball, by the Canadian-born director and producer Norman Jewison, is his 1975 vision of a future dominated by anonymous corporations and their executive elite, in which all individual effort and aggressive emotions are subsumed into a horrifically violent global sport; it remains critically overlooked. Andrew Nette examines the many dimensions of Rollerball ’s making and reception: the way it simultaneously exhibits the aesthetics and narrative tropes of mainstream action and art-house cinema; the elaborate and painstaking process of world creation undertaken by Jewison and Harrison; and the cultural forces and debates that influenced them, including the increasing corporate power and growing violence in Western society. Nette shows how a film derided by many critics for its violence works as a sophisticated and disturbing portrayal of a dystopian future that anticipates numerous contemporary concerns. The book includes an interview with Jewison on Rollerball ’s influences, making, and reception.

Studying Ida SHEILA SKAFF

SHEILA SKAFF

From the Prison Wall to the Firewall DERYCK SWAN

Michael Mann is a formidable filmmaking personality, but the idea that today’s celebrity cult of director immediately correlates with the mysterious sect of auteur is questionable and deserves to be investigated. This book strives to emulate the methodology of Mann by ranging not only over his films—from 1979’s The Jericho Mile to 2015’s Blackhat—but also over the scope of intellectual interests they exemplify to mine the commonalities, themes, and traits that may suggest the presence of an auteur.

Paweł Pawlikowski’s 2013 film Ida was exceptionally warmly received in the United States, culminating in the Academy Award for Film Not in the English Language, but it was not without controversy. Sheila Skaff ’s introduction to the film explains the historical setting, including the violence that took place in the Polish countryside during World War II and was not exposed for sixty years, and provides political and cultural analysis to aid the reader in understanding the film’s setting and narrative. Skaff also touches on the influence of the film on current events in Poland, where censorship of it by an increasingly nationalist government has polarized the country. It also situates Ida within the contexts of Polish and world film history. Scene-by-scene analysis is accompanied in each chapter by background information that gives context to the aesthetic and narrative choices made by the director.
