Dear Readers: This catalogue represents a phenomenal effort on the part of our authors and Columbia University Press to publish books that intervene in today’s most urgent global issues. With books on immigration, equal representation, climate change, free speech, terror, human rights, and the future of the world economy, our press continues to lead in disseminating crucial ideas based in sound scholarship that are necessary as our world grows smaller and more tense. Our titles this season rethink foundational partnerships— science and art, husband and wife, true and false, business and society, East and West, and the economy and the environment— to broaden our worldview and foster a more intimate knowledge of influence and inspiration. In Reductionism in Art and Brain Science (p. 1), the Nobel Prize–winning author Eric R. Kandel appreciates from a neuroscientific perspective the impulses that disrupt creative paradigms. In Marriage as a Fine Art (p. 5), Julia Kristeva and Philippe Sollers reflect on the challenge of adapting to and loving another person. In The Madhouse Effect (p. 9), the award-winning climate scientist Michael E. Mann and the Pulitzer prize–winning political cartoonist Tom Toles use incisive humor to balance scientific fact and partisan fiction. Capital and the Common Good (p. 12) is Georgia Levenson Keohane’s proposal to apply market savvy to social, economic, and environmental challenges, and Endangered Economies (p. 17) is Geoffrey Heal’s effort to broker a peace between economic growth and environmental preservation. Our joint venture with the Russian Institute for Literary Translation (pp. 6–7), a powerful partnership between East and West, has yielded the first three books in our Russian Library series. These provocative novels and drama prove that cuttingedge satire and formal innovation are alive and well in the cradle of modern literature. We have also acquired distribution rights for four new, acclaimed presses: Tulika Books in India (p. 100), Agenda Publishing in the United Kingdom (p. 94), Barbara Budrich Publishers in Germany (p. 96), and the Peterson Institute for International Economics in Washington, D.C. (p. 92). These presses complement our existing strengths while adding to our offerings in economics and sociology. As a business and an intellectual storehouse, Columbia University Press continues to grow in remarkable new ways, and the backing we receive from our readers, partners, and university faculty and staff is what makes this possible. Thank you for your continued support of our books and mission. Jennifer Crewe President and Director


Reductionism in Art and Brain Science Bridging the Two Cultures ERIC R. KANDEL THE S UR P R IS ING PART N E R S H I P O F A RT A N D S CI E N C E .

Can science and art find common ground? In this new book, the neuroscientist Eric R. Kandel explores how reductionism—the distillation of larger scientific or aesthetic concepts into smaller, more tractable ideas—has been used by scientists and artists alike to pursue their several truths. Kandel draws on his Nobel Prize–winning work on the neurobiological underpinnings of learning and memory in the humble sea slug. He extends these findings to the complexities of human perception, which uses bottom-up sensory and top-down cognitive functions to appreciate works of art.

At the heart of this book is an elegant elucidation of the pivotal contribution of reductionism to modern art’s extraordinary evolution and to its role in a monumental shift in artistic perspective. Reductionism was a driving force in the transition from figurative art to the first explorations of abstract art in the works of Turner, Monet, Kandinsky, Schoenberg, and Mondrian. Kandel explains how the New York school of Pollock, de Kooning, Rothko, Louis, Turrell, and Flavin arrived at their particular forms of abstract expressionism in the postwar era, and concludes with Katz, Warhol, Close, and Sandback, who built upon the advances of the New York school to reimagine figurative and minimal art. Featuring captivating drawings of the brain alongside full-color reproductions of modernart masterpieces, this book brings science and art into closer relation. ERIC R. KANDEL

“Words like ‘genius’ or ‘renaissance man’ are rarely used in these egalitarian times, but such descriptions would not be inappropriate for Kandel, who is renowned for his work on memory. Kandel has now written a remarkable book, full of poetic insights, without compromising scientific rigor.” —V. S.

Mouthfeel

How Texture Makes Taste OLE G. MOURITSEN AND KLAVS STYRBÆK Translated by Mariela Johansen A S CI E N TI FI C A N D C ULI N A RY EXA MI N ATI O N O F THE R E L ATI O N SHI P B ETWEEN FO O D TEX TURE A N D TASTE.

Why is chocolate melting on the tongue such a decadent sensation? Why do we love crunching on bacon? Why is fizz-less soda such a disappointment to drink, and why is flat beer so unappealing to the palate? Our sense of taste produces physical and emotional reactions that cannot be explained by chemical components alone. Eating triggers our imagination, draws on our powers of recall, and activates our critical judgment, creating a unique impression in our mouths and our minds. How exactly does this alchemy work, and what are the larger cultural and environmental implications?

“In the tradition of their book Umami, Mouritsen and

Ole G. Mouritsen and Klavs Styrbæk investigate the ways in which food texture influences taste. Combining scientific analysis with creative intuition and a sophisticated knowledge of food preparation, they write a one-of-a-kind book for food lovers and food-science scholars. Gaining insight into the textural properties of raw vegetables, puffed rice, bouillon, or ice cream can help us make healthier and more sustainable food choices. Through mouthfeel, we can re-create the feelings of foods we love with other ingredients or learn to latch onto smarter food options. Mastering texture also leads to more adventurous gastronomic experiments in the kitchen.

Styrbæk have succeeded in explaining another gastronomic concept in an exciting and accessible way. This book will establish mouthfeel as a major factor for chefs to think more about and diners to appreciate.” —Gordon M.

Neuroenology

How the Brain Creates the Taste of Wine GORDON M. SHEPHERD A PIONEER OF NEUR O G AST R O N O M Y W R I T E S AN E NGAGING T R EAT M E N T O F T H E BR A I N ’ S R O L E I N CR EAT ING T H E TAST E O F W I N E .

In Neuroenology, Gordon M. Shepherd expands on the startling discovery that the brain creates the taste of wine. Drawing on findings in neuroscience, biomechanics, human physiology, and traditional enology, Shepherd, following his insights from Neurogastronomy: How the Brain Creates Flavor and Why It Matters, shows that creating the taste of wine engages more of the brain than does any other human behavior. He clearly illustrates the scientific underpinnings of this process, along the way enhancing our enjoyment of wine.

Neuroenology begins with the movements of wine through the mouth and then consults recent research to explain the function of retronasal smell and its extraordinary power in creating wine taste. Shepherd comprehensively explains how the specific sensory pathways in the cerebral cortex create the memory of wine and how language is used to identify and imprint wine characteristics. Intended for a broad audience of readers—from amateur wine drinkers to sommeliers, from casual foodies to seasoned chefs—Neuroenology shows how the emotion of pleasure is the final judge of the wine experience. It includes practical tips for a scientifically informed wine tasting and closes with a delightful account of Shepherd’s experience tasting classic Bordeaux vintages with French winemaker Jean-Claude Berrouet of the Chateau Petrus and Dominus Estate. GORDON M. SHEPHERD

“Shepherd provides a valuable and interesting glimpse into the human side of science and its inherently cross-disciplinary nature. After having read Neuroenology, every sniff, bite, and gulp will create a moment of reflection on how complex and wonderfully mysterious the human brain is.” —Christopher R.

“Heidegger overcomes the deadlock between pro- and anti-Heideggerians embedded in the debate about his Nazism while shedding light on the intimate, subtle connections between Heidegger’s fundamental ontology and his relations (both intellectual and amorous) with women.” —Adrian Johnston, University of New Mexico

“You will enjoy spending time with

Martin Heidegger was an ordinary Nazi and a loyal member of the provincial petty bourgeoisie. He was also a seminal thinker of the Continental tradition and one of the twentieth century’s most important philosophers. How are we to make sense of this mix? Should we factor Heidegger’s domestic and political associations into our understanding of his thought, or should we treat his intellectual work independently of his abhorrent politics? How does any thinker reconcile the mundane with the ideal, or the pursuit of philosophical inquiry with the demands of civic engagement?

In Heidegger, Alain Badiou and Barbara Cassin immerse themselves in the philosopher’s correspondence to answer these questions as they relate to Heidegger and all thinkers vulnerable to their times. They focus on Heidegger’s tormented relationship with his wife, Elfrida, Hannah Arendt, and numerous other women, bringing an unusual level of intimacy to his personal and intellectual worlds. “Heidegger is a friendly battle between thinkers

Marriage as a Fine Art

JULIA KRISTEVA AND PHILIPPE SOLLERS Translated by Lorna Scott Fox THE SART R E AND D E BE AU VO I R O F O U R T I M E S PE A K TO TH E J OYS AND C H A L L E N G E S O F R E L AT I N G TO ANOT H ER IN M AR R IAG E .

“We found so much to say, to share, to learn. . . . For it wasn’t just the Marquis de Sade profile and the sporty thighs-and-calves that seduced me. It was even more, perhaps, or certainly just as much, the speed at which you used to read, and still do.” —Julia Kristeva “We’re married, Julia and I, that’s a fact, but we each have our own personalities, our own name, activities, and freedom. Love is the full recognition of the other in their otherness. If this other is very close to you, as in this case, it seems to me that what’s at stake is harmony within difference. The difference between men and women is irreducible; there’s no possibility of fusion.” —Philippe Sollers

Marriage as a Fine Art is an enchanting series of exchanges in which Julia Kristeva and Philippe Sollers, married for fifty years, speak candidly about their love. Though they live separately, Kristeva and Sollers are fully committed to each other. Their bond is intellectual and psychological, passionate and mundane. They share everything when together, and lose themselves in their interests when apart. Their marriage is art, rich with history and meaning, idiosyncratic, and dynamic in its expression. Yet it is also as common as they come. Kristeva and Sollers have lived through the same challenges, peaks, and lulls as all married couples do. With humor and honesty, they elaborate on these moments, turning marriage’s familiar aspects into exceptional examples of relating, struggling, transcending, and being. Marriage as a Fine Art is a rare chance to know these intellectuals—and marriage—more intimately. JULIA KRISTEVA

“Kristeva and Sollers’s shared love of literature and interpretation, their appreciation of each other’s work, is evident throughout this volume. These feelings play a real part in their fine art of marriage. As they explore its lineaments in this book, they also share their deep knowledge of psychoanalysis and literature.” —Lisa Appignanesi, author of All About Love: Anatomy of an Unruly Emotion and Trials of Passion: Crimes in the Name of Love and Madness

Fourteen Little Red Huts

And Other Plays

ANDREI PLATONOV

Beginning in December of 2016, Columbia University Press will publish an expansive selection of Russian literature in English translation, concentrating on works previously unavailable in English and those ripe for new translations. Works of premodern, modern, and contemporary literature will be featured, including recent writing. The series seeks to demonstrate the breadth, surprising variety, and global importance of the Russian literary tradition and will include not only novels but also short stories, plays, poetry, memoirs, creative nonfiction, and works of mixed or fluid genre.

Edited by Robert Chandler. Translated by Robert Chandler, Susan Larsen, and Jesse Irwin “In Russia it is Platonov who is increasingly described as the best writer of the postrevolutionary epoch.” —Victor Erofeyev, Times Literary Supplement

In this essential collection of Andrei Platonov’s plays, the noted Platonov translator Robert Chandler edits and introduces The Hurdy-Gurdy (translated by Susan Larsen), The Fourteen Little Red Huts (translated by Chandler), and Grandmother’s Little Hut (translated by Jesse Irwin). Written in 1930 and 1933, respectively, The Hurdy-Gurdy and The Fourteen Little Red Huts constitute an impassioned and penetrating response to Stalin’s assault on the Soviet peasantry. The unfinished play Grandmother’s Little Hut represents Platonov’s later, gentler work. ANDREI PLATONOV (1899–1951) was a Soviet writer of poetry,

short stories, novels, plays, and journalism. ROBERT CHANDLER has translated widely from Russian. He is also the editor of Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida (2006) and coeditor of The Penguin Book of Russian Poetry (2015).

Strolls with Pushkin

Between Dog and Wolf

Translated by Slava I. Yastremski and Catherine Theimer Nepomnyashchy

Translated by Alexander Boguslawski

ANDREI SINYAVSKY

“This translation of Sinyavsky’s subversive text achieves the impossible, shocking, entertaining, and beguiling us into a freer, more lively appreciation of the liberating power of language.”—Cathy Porter, Independent

SASHA SOKOLOV

“Sokolov is one of those rare novelists whose primary concern is the praise and exploration of a language rather than the development of a position. In this, he is in the line of Gogol, Lermontov, Nabokov.” —David Remnick, Washington Post

Andrei Sinyavsky’s irreverent portrait of Pushkin outraged émigrés and Soviet scholars alike, yet his “disrespect” was meant only to rescue Pushkin from the stifling cult of personality that had risen up around him. Anglophone readers who question the longstanding adoration for Pushkin felt by generations of Russians will enjoy tagging along on Sinyavsky’s strolls with the great poet, discussing his life, fiction, and famously untranslatable poems. This new edition of Strolls with Pushkin also includes a later essay Sinyavsky wrote on the artist, “Journey to the River Black.”

Between Dog and Wolf has long intimidated translators because of its complex puns, rhymes, and neologisms. Language rather than plot motivates the story—the novel is often compared to Finnegans Wake—and time, characters, and death all prove unstable. The one constant is the Russian landscape, where the Volga is a more-crossable River Styx, especially when it freezes in winter. Sokolov’s fiction is a huge influence on contemporary Russian writers. Now, thanks to Alexander Boguslawski’s bold and superb translation, English readers can access what many consider to be his best work.

ANDREI SINYAVSKY (1925–1997) was a writer of fiction and

SASHA SOKOLOV is the author of the novels A School for Fools (1976), Between Dog and Wolf (1980), and Astrophobia (1985) and the essay collection In the House of the Hanged (2011).

The Traveler’s Guide to Space

For One-Way Settlers and Round-Trip Tourists NEIL F. COMINS A N I NSI DE LO O K AT THE EX P ERI EN C E O F SPAC E T R AV E L A N D THE DESTI N ATI O N S WE MAY O N E DAY V I S I T AS SPAC E TO URI STS.

Traveling into space and visiting or even emigrating to nearby worlds will soon become part of the human experience. Scientists, engineers, and investors are working hard to make space tourism a reality. To make the most of the experience requires profound physical and mental adjustments by travelers as they adapt to microgravity and alterations in virtually every aspect of life. Everyone who goes into space and returns sees Earth and life on it from a profoundly different perspective.

The astronomer and former NASA/ASEE scientist Neil F. Comins has written the go-to book for anyone interested in space exploration, including potential travelers. He describes the joys and the dangers travelers will face: weightlessness, unparalleled views of Earth and the cosmos, the opportunity to walk on or jump off another world, as well as radiation, projectiles, unbreathable atmospheres, and potential equipment failures. He also provides insight into specific types of travel and destinations, including suborbital flights (nonstop flights to space and back), Earth-orbiting space stations, the Moon, asteroids, comets, and Mars. Comins outlines these matters in clear language for all readers. He synthesizes key issues and cutting-edge research in astronomy, physics, biology, psychology, and sociology to create a complete manual for those eager to take the ultimate voyage, as well as those interested only in the adventure.

“There is no other book for the popular reader that addresses the many serious challenges involved in deep-space travel. Understanding these issues is essential for anyone with an interest in space exploration. The Traveler’s Guide to Space does an excellent job looking at the whole picture, from space tourists, to oneway colonization, from physical to psychological challenges.” —Robert Geller, University of California, Santa Barbara

The Madhouse Effect

How Climate Change Denial Is Threatening Our Planet, Destroying Our Politics, and Driving Us Crazy MICHAEL E. MANN AND TOM TOLES A CL EV ER L AM P OON O F T H E FA L L AC I O U S C L A I M S A ND AB S UR D AR GUM ENTS O F CL I M AT E - S CI E N C E D E N I E R S.

The award winning climate scientist Michael E. Mann and the Pulitzer Prize–winning political cartoonist Tom Toles have fought at the frontlines of climate denialism for most of their careers. They have witnessed the manipulation of the media by business and political interests and the unconscionable play to partisanship on issues that affect the well-being of millions. The lessons they have learned have been invaluable, inspiring this brilliant, colorful escape hatch from the madhouse of the climate wars. Through satire, The Madhouse Effect portrays the intellectual pretzels into which denialists must twist logic to explain away the clear evidence that man-made activity has changed our climate. Toles’s cartoons collapse counter-scientific strategies into their biased components, helping readers see how to best strike at these fallacies. Mann’s expert skills at science communication aim to restore sanity to a debate that continues to rage against widely acknowledged scientific consensus. The synergy of these two commonsense crusaders enlivens the gloom and doom of so many climate-themed books—and may even convert a few of the faithful to the right side of science. MICHAEL E. MANN

“Mann and Toles are uniquely qualified to lampoon the disconnect between our national politics and the reasonable people who, at the local, state, and regional level—as well as their counterparts in other countries— are rolling up their sleeves and actually dealing with climate change.” —Aaron Huertas, senior Washington director, Cater Communications

If You’re in a Dogfight, Become a Cat!

Strategies for Long-Term Growth LEONARD SHERMAN A CO RP O RATE- STRATEGY GUI DE FO R AC HI EVI N G LO N G-TERM P RO FI TA B LE GROWTH I N A N Y I N DUSTRY.

When Yellow Tail wines launched in 2001, they battled 6,500 other wineries for a share of the American market. By 2007, Yellow Tail sales in the United States exceeded the sales of all French wineries combined. How did this new business enter such a crowded market and succeed?

If You’re in a Dogfight, Become a Cat! explains how businesses such as Yellow Tail survive and thrive in industries embroiled in “dogfights”—intense competition among established companies for a small piece of the market. Leonard Sherman, a longtime business consultant and faculty member at Columbia Business School, has developed a three-part strategy based on years of working with Audi, Toyota, and United Technologies. His advice: compete on different terms to attract new customers. FedEx, Apple, Southwest Airlines, and Starbucks have thrived as cats by differentiating their businesses, aligning their goals and practices, and continuously innovating. Rather than compete head-on with other PC manufacturers, Apple introduced a new category of tablet devices to unlock latent demand for mobile computing. Yellow Tail turned beer- and liquor-lovers on to casual, drinkable wines through approachable packaging. In this book, managers of companies big and small encounter model strategies for forwardthinking organizations that have resulted in real long-term growth.

“A wonderfully comprehensive view of competition and competitive strategy. Sherman illustrates his concepts well with contemporary examples and citations of the scholarly literature, linking them to action-oriented techniques.” —John Czepiel, New York University Stern School of Business

Narrative and Numbers

The Value of Stories in Business ASWATH DAMODARAN

HOW TO CONNEC T BU S I N E SS VA LU E TO STO RY.

How can a company that has never turned a profit have a multi-billion-dollar valuation? Why do some start-ups attract large investments while others do not? Aswath Damodaran argues that the power of story drives corporate value, adding substance to numbers and persuading even cautious investors to take risks. In business, there are the storytellers who spin compelling narratives and the number crunchers who construct meaningful models and accounts. Both are essential to success, but only by combining the two, Damodaran argues, can a business deliver and sustain value.

Through a range of case studies, Narrative and Numbers describes how storytellers can better incorporate and narrate numbers and how numbercrunchers can calculate more imaginative models that withstand scrutiny. Damodaran considers Uber’s debut and how narrative is key to understanding different valuations. He investigates why Twitter and Facebook were valued in the billions of dollars at their public offerings and why one (Twitter) has stagnated while the other (Facebook) has grown. Damodaran also looks at Apple and Amazon to demonstrate how a company’s history can both enrich and constrain its narrative. And through Vale, a global Brazil-based mining company, he shows how country, commodity, and currency can shape a company’s story. Narrative and Numbers reveals the benefits, challenges, and pitfalls of weaving narratives around numbers and how one can best test a story’s plausibility. ASWATH DAMODARAN

“Narrative and Numbers is well organized, well written, and engaging, with the interplay between qualitative analysis (narrative) and quantitative analysis (numbers) vividly demonstrated. It is a lively discussion supported by case studies and considerable detail on implementation.” —Stephen Penman, author, Accounting for Value

“Keohane is an engaging writer, a strong storyteller, and an incisive and expansive thinker, and she has in this book provided an unprecedented collection of innovative finance approaches for social impact.” —Ben Mangan, executive director, Haas Center for Social Sector Leadership Group, University of California, Berkeley

“This book should be read by policy makers, philanthropic funders, and private investors alike—anyone looking for practical approaches to improve outcomes on the pressing issues of our day.” —Robert E. Rubin, co-chairman, Council on Foreign Relations, and former U.S. Treasury Secretary

Despite social and economic advances around the world, poverty and disease persist, exacerbated by the mounting challenges of climate change, natural disasters, political conflict, mass migration, and economic inequality. While many institutions commit to addressing these challenges, traditional public and philanthropic dollars are not enough. Innovative finance brings governmental, commercial, and philanthropic resources to bear on the common good, building a more sustainable and inclusive prosperity.

Capital and the Common Good shows how market failure in one context can be solved with market solutions from another: an expert in securitization bundles future development aid into bonds to pay for vaccines today; an entrepreneur turns a mobile phone into an array of financial services for the unbanked; and policy makers adapt pay-for-success models from the world of infrastructure to human services such as early childhood education, maternal health, and job training. Surveying the successes and missteps of these efforts, Georgia Levenson Keohane argues that innovative finance is as much about incentives and sound decision making as it is about money. When it works, innovative finance gives us the tools, motivation, and security to invest in our shared future. GEORGIA LEVENSON KEOHANE

Class Clowns

How the Smartest Investors Lost Billions in Education JONATHAN A. KNEE A FAS C INAT ING P OST M O RT E M O F FO U R FA I L E D E F FORTS TO T R ANS FO R M E D U CAT I O N .

The past thirty years have seen dozens of otherwise successful investors try to improve education through the application of market principles. They have funneled billions of dollars into alternative schools, online education, and textbook publishing. In Class Clowns, professor and investment banker Jonathan A. Knee dissects what drives investors’ efforts to improve education and why they consistently fail. He takes readers inside Rupert Murdoch’s billion-dollar effort to reshape elementary education through technology; the unhappy investors—including hedge-fund titan John Paulson—who lost billions in textbook publisher Houghton Mifflin; the abandonment of Knowledge Universe, Michael Milken’s twenty-year mission to revolutionize the global education industry; and the story of Chris Whittle, the founder of EdisonLearning and a pioneer of large-scale transformational educational ventures, who continues to attract investment despite decades of financial and operational disappointment.

Although belief in the curative powers of the market drove these initiatives, it was the investors’ failure to appreciate market structure that doomed them. Knee finds a dozen broad lessons at the heart of these cautionary case studies, offering an important guide for public-policy makers and guard rails for future investors, as well as an intelligent exposé for activists and teachers.

“Class Clowns strikes me as much more than a business book, or a book on the education industry. Filled with colorful characters and gripping narratives, it poses some deep questions that should engage a broad audience. By bringing the keen insights of a veteran investment banker, Knee demonstrates that no matter the goals, any business is subject to the basic laws of economies of scale, geographic advantage, and barriers to new entry. This is an important lesson that many in the education sector seem to have ignored.” —James Stewart, Columbia Journalism School

How to Prosper in the Next Emerging Markets MARKO DIMITRIJEVIĆ with Timothy Mistele O PE N I N G UP A WHO LE N EW WO RLD—A N D WO R LDVI EW—TO THE A DVEN TURO US I N VESTO R.

Frontier markets account for 15 percent of global GDP, yet global investors largely ignore them. Fueled by access to technology and information, these markets are emerging even faster than their predecessors, making them an essential component of a globally diversified portfolio. In Frontier Investor, Marko Dimitrijević makes the case for their inclusion, arguing—through a diverse set of case studies—that it is possible if not wise to make informed investing decisions about these unfamiliar and undervalued markets.

“Dimitrijević’s extensive experience

Markets that were considered exotic two decades ago—China, India, South Africa, and Russia—are today’s mainstream. Dimitrijević begins with an analysis of how this came to be and looks at the markets that are poised to follow a similar path. He then details a strategy for how and where to invest directly or indirectly for those with limited access but who still wish to profit from emerging market growth. Dimitrijević covers the political and other risks of taking advantage of these opportunities and the megatrends that may provide new options and open up new countries, such as Cuba and Iran, to exponential growth.

The financial markets are incredibly noisy and full of opinions, innuendo, and misinformation. They overwhelm the senses, confuse, and disorient, inviting all kinds of deception. No lesson on investing is complete without accounting for the emotional and psychological biases that can lead investors astray and how to correct for those biases. Analytical techniques are useless if they are not integrated into a well-conceived decision framework that recognizes how we are wired to perceive the world around us. That is why Book of Value looks to philosophy and psychology to redefine modern portfolio theory for investors at all skill levels. Building off of the philosophy of Thomas Kuhn and Karl Popper, Anurag Sharma defines an “art of looking” that blocks out the din of the market and pinpoints deep value. Sharma outlines how to be mindful of psychological biases, frame investment decisions, and correctly apply key analytical techniques to build lucrative and durable stock portfolios. A groundbreaking guide full of lasting value, this book should be on the shelf of anyone who takes investing seriously. ANURAG SHARMA

A Brief History of Entrepreneurship

The Pioneers, Profiteers, and Racketeers Who Shaped Our World JOE CARLEN

A CH ARAC TER- DRI VEN C HRO N I C LE O F HOW E N T E R P RI SE HAS TRA N SFO RMED C I VI LI Z ATI O N .

Through engaging vignettes, A Brief History of Entrepreneurship charts how the pursuit of profit by private individuals has been a prime mover in revolutionizing civilization. Entrepreneurs often butt up against processes, technologies, social conventions, and even laws, so they circumvent, innovate, and violate to obtain what they want. This creative destruction has brought about overland and overseas trade, colonization, and a host of revolutionary technologies that have transformed society. “Carlen delves in primary and secondary sources, including texts on modern management, and presents them in readable and attractive prose. A Brief History of Entrepreneurship is a light and enjoyable read.” —Ali Kahn, Johns Hopkins University

Consulting rich archival sources, including some that have never before been translated, Carlen maps the course of human history through nine episodes in which entrepreneurship reshaped our world. In an engaging style highlighting the most colorful characters of each era, he discusses Mesopotamian merchants’ creation of the urban market economy; Phoenician merchant-sailors intercontinental trade; Chinese tea traders’ invention of paper money; the colonization of the Americas; and the current “flattening” of the world’s economic playing field. Yet the pursuit of profit hasn’t always been positive. From slavery to organized crime, Carlen explores how entrepreneurship can sometimes work at the expense of others. Lastly, he discusses the new entrepreneurs who, through the nascent space-tourism industry, are leading humanity to a multiplanetary future. Carlen brings much-needed detail to the role of entrepreneurship in shaping the course of history. JOE CARLEN

In the decades since Geoffrey Heal began his fielddefining work in environmental economics, one central question has animated his research: Can we save our environment and grow our economy? This issue has become only more urgent in recent years with the threat of climate change, the accelerating loss of ecosystems, and the rapid industrialization of the developing world. Reflecting on a lifetime of experience as a leading voice in the field and as a green entrepreneur, activist, and advisor to governments and global organizations, Heal passionately demonstrates that the only way to achieve long-term economic growth is to protect our environment.

Heal begins with the tragedy of the commons and unregulated pollution to demonstrate the underlying tensions that have compromised our planet. Such destruction has dire consequences not only for us and the environment but also for businesses, which often vastly underestimate their reliance on unpriced natural benefits like pollination, the water cycle, marine and forest ecosystems, and more. Heal then outlines solutions that have already proven effective in conserving nature and boosting economic growth. In order to ensure a prosperous future for humanity, we must understand how environment and economy interact and how they can work in harmony—lest we permanently harm both. GEOFFREY HEAL

“Told as a story of discovery and the evolution of his own thinking, Heal’s book makes difficult conceptual arguments transparent. Using examples to illustrate the key issues in environmental economics, Heal demonstrates why an understanding of the consequences of all production and consumption processes for environmental resources must be an essential part of any description of economic activities.” —V.

Whether you are a university professor, researcher at a think tank, graduate student, or analyst at a private firm, chances are at some point you have presented your work in front of an audience. Most of us approach this task by converting a written document into slides, and the result is often a text-heavy presentation saddled with bullet points, stock images, and graphs too complex for an audience to decipher—much less understand. With only a little more time, a little more effort, and a little more planning, it is possible to communicate your work with force and clarity.

Designed for presenters of scholarly or dataintensive content, Better Presentations details essential strategies for developing clear, sophisticated, and visually captivating presentations. Following three core principles—visualize, unify, and focus— Better Presentations describes how to effectively visualize data and find and use images, choose sensible fonts and colors, edit text for powerful delivery, and restructure a written argument for maximum engagement and persuasion. With a range of clear examples for what to do (and what not to do), the practical package offered in Better Presentations shares the best techniques to display work and the best tactics for winning over audiences. It pushes presenters past the frustration and intimidation of the process to more effective, memorable, and persuasive presentations. © M AT T H E W J O H N S O N

American outlets such as PolitiFact, FactCheck.org, and the Washington Post’s Fact Checker have shaken up the political world by holding public figures accountable for what they say. Cited across social and national news media, these verdicts can rattle a political campaign and send the White House press corps scrambling. Yet fact-checking challenges reporters’ roles as objective observers and places them at the center of white-hot debates. As these journalists are the first to admit, in a hyperpartisan world, facts can easily slip into fiction, and decisions about which claims to investigate and how to judge them are frequently denounced as unfair play.

Deciding What’s True draws on Lucas Graves’s unique access to the members of the newsrooms leading this movement. Graves vividly recounts the routines of journalists at three of these hyperconnected, technologically innovative organizations and what informs their approach to a story. Graves also plots a compelling, personality-driven history of the fact-checking movement and its recent evolution from the blogosphere, reflecting on its revolutionary remaking of journalistic ethics and practice. His book demonstrates the ways these rising organizations depend on professional networks and media partnerships yet have also made inroads with the academic and philanthropic worlds. These networks have become a vital source of influence as fact-checking spreads around the world.

Journalism After Snowden

The Future of the Free Press in the Surveillance State

EDITED BY EMILY BELL AND TAYLOR OWEN WITH SMITHA KHORANA AND JENN HENRICHSEN HOW H AV E T H E S NOW D E N R E V E L AT I O N S AND M ASS S URV EIL LA N CE CH A N G E D I N VE ST IGAT IV E J OUR N A L I S M ?

Edward Snowden’s release of classified NSA documents exposed the widespread government practice of mass surveillance in a democratic society. The publication of these documents, as well as efforts to criminalize the act of being a whistleblower or source, signaled a new era in the coverage of national-security reporting.

Journalism After Snowden integrates discussions of media, law, surveillance, technology, and national security to assess journalism in the digital age. The book features contributions from key players in the reporting of the NSA files, including the former editor in chief of the Guardian, Alan Rusbridger; former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson; and the legal scholar and journalist Glenn Greenwald, plus an interview with Edward Snowden. Other contributors include the dean of Columbia Graduate School of Journalism Steve Coll, the internet and society scholar Clay Shirky, the legal scholar Cass Sunstein, and the journalist Julia Angwin. They discuss the protection of sources, digital security practices, the legal rights of journalists, access to classified data, interpreting journalistic privilege in the digital age, and internet and telecommunications policy on journalism. EMILY BELL

“There is a new normal for journalism in the age of the surveillance state. Journalism After Snowden taps the ideas of some of the world’s top journalists, editors, and scholars to provide a rich and intellectually diverse set of perspectives on the implications of surveillance for journalism practice and for the role of journalism in democratic society.” —Jonathan Peters, University of Kansas

The Miracle Myth

Why Belief in the Resurrection and the Supernatural Is Unjustified LARRY SHAPIRO Q U E STI O N I N G O UR N EED TO B ELI EVE I N THE M I R ACULO US A N D THE MYTHI CA L.

There are many who believe Moses parted the Red Sea and Jesus came back from the dead. Others are certain that exorcisms occur, ghosts haunt attics, and the blessed can cure the terminally ill. Though extraordinarily improbable, people have embraced miracles and myths for millennia, seeing in them proof of the extraordinary potential of our world— and ourselves. Helping us think more critically about our belief in the improbable, The Miracle Myth breaks down our mythmaking strategies to better understand how attempts to justify belief in the supernatural fall short. Through arguments and accessible analysis, Larry Shapiro sharpens our critical faculties so we become less susceptible to tales of myths and miracles and learn how, ultimately, our belief in them is counterproductive. Shapiro acknowledges that myths have value. They may even provide insight into our place in nature. Even so, if our understanding of reality is formed through the fallacy of myth, our ties to the world fray.

The Work of Art

Rethinking the Elementary Forms of Religious Life MICHAEL JACKSON ART M AK ING AS A WAY O F M E D I AT I N G BET W E E N I N NER AND OUT ER R E A L I T I E S .

How are we to think of works of art? Rather than treat art as an expression of individual genius, market forces, or aesthetic principles, Michael Jackson focuses on how art effects transformations in our lives. Art opens up transitional, ritual, or utopian spaces that enable us to reconcile inward imperatives and outward constraints, thereby making our lives more manageable and meaningful. Art allows us to strike a balance between being actors and being acted upon. Drawing on his ethnographic fieldwork in Aboriginal Australia and West Africa, as well as insights from psychoanalysis, religious studies, literature, and the philosophy of art, Jackson uses an extraordinary range of references—from Bruegel to Beuys, Paleolithic art to performance art, Michelangelo to Munch—in exploring the symbolic labor whereby human beings make themselves, both individually and socially, out of the environmental, biographical, and physical materials that affect them: a process that connects art with gestation, storytelling, and dreaming and illuminates the elementary forms of religious life. © B R A DY WA G O N E R

Data Love

The Seduction and Betrayal of Digital Technologies ROBERTO SIMANOWSKI W H AT A RE THE CO N SEQ UEN C ES O F O UR D E S I RE FO R UN LI MI TED ACC ESS TO DATA?

“Simanowski proffers a much more profound history and theoretical basis to the debate, neither too radical nor too conservative.

Intelligence services, government administrations, businesses, and a growing majority of the population are hooked on the idea that big data can reveal patterns and correlations in everyday life. Initiated by software engineers and carried out through algorithms, big data has sparked a silent revolution. But algorithmic analysis and data mining are not simply byproducts of media development or the logical consequences of computation. They are the radicalization of the Enlightenment’s quest for knowledge and progress. Data Love argues that the “cold civil war” of big data is taking place not among citizens or between the citizen and government but within each one of us. Roberto Simanowski elaborates on the changes data love has brought to the human condition while exploring the entanglements of those who—out of stinginess, convenience, ignorance, narcissism, or passion—contribute to the amassing of ever-more data about their lives, leading to the statistical evaluation and individual profiling of their selves. Writing from a philosophical standpoint, Simanowski illustrates the social implications of technological development and retrieves the concepts, events, and cultural artifacts of past centuries to help decode the programming of our present.

Without question, Data Love is the most comprehensive and philosophically rich contribution on this subject that I have read.” —Creston Davis, Global Center for Advanced Studies

Psychoanalysis and the Human Sciences LOUIS ALTHUSSER

Translation by Steven Rendall and Introduction by Pascale Gillot CAN P SYC H OANALYSI S E X PA N D O U R CO M PR E H E N S I ON OF S OC IAL AND P OL I T I CA L L I FE ?

What can psychoanalysis, a psychological approach developed over a century ago, offer us in an age of rapidly evolving, hard-to-categorize ideas of sexuality and the self ? Should we abandon Freud’s theories completely or adapt them to new findings and the new relationships taking shape in modern liberal societies? In a remarkably prescient series of lectures delivered in the early 1960s, the French philosopher Louis Althusser anticipated the challenges that psychoanalytic theory would face as politics moved away from structuralist frameworks and toward the elastic possibilities of anthropological and sociological thought.

Psychoanalysis and the Human Sciences translates Althusser’s remarkable seminars into English for the first time, making available to a wider audience the origins and potential future of radical political theory. Althusser takes the important step of distinguishing psychoanalysis from psychology and especially psychiatry, which long resisted Freud’s analytical concepts of the unconscious and overdetermination. By freeing psychoanalysis from this bind, Althusser can then apply these analytical concepts to the social and the political, integrated with Marxist theory. The result is an enlivened methodology for comprehending social organization and change that had a profound influence on the Frankfurt School and scholars who continue to work at the forefront of radical thought today: Judith Butler, Etienne Balibar, and Alain Badiou. LOUIS ALTHUSSER

(1918–1990) was a French Marxist philosopher and

professor of philosophy at the École Normale Supérieure. His books include Writings on Psychoanalysis: Freud and Lacan (Columbia, 1996) and Reading Capital (1965).

“Psychoanalysis and the Human Sciences is a significant contribution to the literature. The question of whether psychoanalysis is a science and of its relationship to psychology is very much alive; Althusser’s solution was and remains an original one.” —William S. Lewis, Skidmore College

“Psychoanalysis and the Human Sciences is short, clear, and readable. Its accessibility and lucidity will appeal to both novices and experts in Continental-style philosophy” —Adrian Johnson, University of New Mexico

Exiled in America

Life on the Margins in a Residential Motel CHRISTOPHER P. DUM T H E STO RY O F THE BOA RDWA LK MOTEL WI LL MOVE A N YO N E WHO CA RES A BO UT A MERI CA’ S MOST V U L N E RA B LE C I TI Z EN S.

Residential motels have long been a place of last resort for many vulnerable Americans—released prisoners, people with disabilities or mental illness, struggling addicts, the recently homeless, and the working poor. Cast aside by their families and mainstream society, they survive in squalid, unsafe, and demeaning circumstances that few of us can imagine.

For a year, the sociologist Christopher P. Dum lived in the Boardwalk Motel to better understand its residents and the varied paths that brought them there. He documented how life in the motel affected their goals and dreams. As told through the voices and experiences of motel residents, Exiled in America paints a portrait of a vibrant community whose members forged identities in response to overwhelming stigma and created meaningful lives despite crushing economic instability. Dum witnessed moments of violence and conflict, as well as those of care and community. Throughout, he presents a powerful counterforce to the myths and stereotypes that often plague marginalized populations.

“It is not often, after forty years in the business, that I actually get excited by a new scholar’s tone—that I find it so fascinating, so rich, so theoretically and analytically thick, that I actually go agog over it. Such is the case with Dum’s work.” —Peter Adler, University of Denver

In addition to chronicling daily life at the Boardwalk, Dum also follows local neighborhood efforts to shut the establishment down, leading to a wider analysis of legislative attempts to sanitize shared social space. He ultimately suggests meaningful policy changes to address the societal failures that lead to the need for motels such as the Boardwalk.

On the Parole Board

Reflections on Crime, Punishment, Redemption, and Justice FREDERIC G. REAMER AN I NS ID E LOOK AT PA R O L E BOA R D D E CI S I O N M A K I N G AND ITS CONS EQUEN CE S .

Few people experience life inside of prison. Even fewer are charged with the formidable responsibility of deciding whether inmates should be released. In his twenty-four years on the Rhode Island Parole Board, Frederic G. Reamer has judged the fates of thousands of inmates, deciding which are ready to reenter society and which are not. It is a choice that balances injury to victims and their families against an offender’s capacity for transformation.

With rich retellings of criminal cases—some banal, some brutal—On the Parole Board is a singular book that explains from an insider’s perspective how a variety of factors play into the board’s decisions: the ongoing effect on victims and their loved ones, the life histories of offenders, the circumstances of the crimes, and the extraordinary displays of forgiveness and remorse. Pulling back the curtain on a process largely shrouded in mystery, Reamer lays bare the thorny philosophical issues of crime and justice and their staggering consequences for inmates, victims, and the public at large. Reamer and his colleagues often hope, despite encountering behavior at its worst, that criminals who have made horrible mistakes have the capacity for redemption. Yet that hope must be tempered with a realistic appraisal of risk, given the potentially grave consequences of releasing an inmate who may commit a future crime. This book will appeal to anyone interested in the complexities of the criminal justice system, the need to correct its injustices, and the challenges of those who must decide when justice has been served. FREDERIC G. REAMER

“This is an excellent book and opens up the black box of parole hearings to the public. But more than simply describing the procedures followed in conducting a hearing (which he does incredibly well), Reamer puts a personal face on the process.” —Joan Petersilia, Stanford Law School

Crude Volatility

The History and the Future of Boom-Bust Oil Prices ROBERT MCNALLY A HISTORY OF T H E O I L I N D U ST RY T H AT D E M YST I FI E S TODAY ’ S P R IC E SWIN G S .

The recent crash in oil prices took the world by surprise—and yet, when seen in the context of the industry’s tumultuous history, the event doesn’t look nearly so shocking. With an account geared toward those involved and those simply interested in oil’s place in our economy, Robert McNally considers the commodity’s central puzzle: its natural tendency toward boom-and-bust price cycles that have affected, or have been affected by, every major global event of the last 150 years.

Tracing a history marked with conflict, intrigue, and extreme uncertainty, Robert McNally shows how—even from the very first years of the market—wild volatility in oil prices led to intensive efforts to stabilize price fluctuations and manage supply. First Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, then U.S. state regulators along with major international oil companies, and finally OPEC each enjoyed varying degrees of success in the pursuit of oil price stability. But the spectacular boom of 2008 and bust of 2015 have revealed a structural shift back to extreme oil price swings. Crafting an engrossing journey from the gushing New England oil fields to the fraught and fractious Middle East, Crude Volatility provides a crucial perspective that discards distractions and tired myths, shows lessons learned from previous mistakes, and provides the historical foundation we need to face, understand, and surmount the challenges ahead. ROBERT MCNALLY

“This completely fresh viewpoint from McNally is a must read for anyone involved in the oil market. The historical perspective provided in Crude Volatility is critical to understanding the future of prices and the impact they will have on the geopolitical order in years to come.

The Antiegalitarian Mutation The Failure of Institutional Politics in Liberal Democracies

NADIA URBINATI AND ARTURO ZAMPAGLIONE Translated by Martin Thom A PR OVO CATI VE P LA N TO P ROTEC T O P EN C I TI Z EN SHI P A N D EQ UA L PA RTI C I PATI O N I N P O LI TI C S.

The twin crises of immigration and mass migration have brought new stakes to the balance of power between progressive and humanitarian groups and their populist opponents. In the United States and in many European countries, the outcome of these battles is uncertain, with a high chance that the public will democratically elect more politicians who support an agenda of nativism and privatization.

“The Antiegalitarian Mutation presents stimulating considerations on the value of democracy, both as an ideal and as a practice, and on the effects that recent global antiegalitarian phenomena have had on it.” —Emanuela Ceva, University of Pavia

“The Antiegalitarian Mutation is an accessible and wide-ranging analysis of the phenomenology and effects of the current crisis for Western democracies.” —Valeria Ottonelli, University of Genova

The Antiegalitarian Mutation makes a forceful case that those seeking to limit citizenship and participation, political or otherwise, have co-opted democracy. Political and legal institutions are failing to temper the interests of people with economic power against the needs of the many, leading to an unsustainable rise in income inequality and a new oligarchy rapidly assuming broad social control. For Nadia Urbinati and Arturo Zampaglione, this insupportable state of affairs is not an inevitable outcome of a robust capitalism but rather the result of an ideological war waged by the neoliberal governments of Reagan, Thatcher, and others against social democracy. These giants of free-market fundamentalism secured power through legitimate political means, and only by taking back our political institutions can we remedy the social ills that threaten to unmake our world. That, according to The Antiegalitarian Mutation, is democracy’s challenge and its ongoing promise. NADIA URBINATI

Governance in the New Global Disorder

Politics for a Post-Sovereign Society DANIEL INNERARITY Foreword by Saskia Sassen Translated by Sandra Kingery HAS GLOBAL IZAT ION M A D E THE WOR L D UNGOV E R N A BL E ?

In Governance in the New Global Disorder, the political philosopher Daniel Innerarity takes a close look at globalization’s unsettling consequences. The “opening” of different societies to new ideas, products, and forms of prosperity has introduced a persistent uncertainty, or disorder, into everyday life. We no longer know who is in control and who is responsible. Economies can collapse without sufficient warning, and efforts to rebuild them can drag on for years. Piracy is everywhere. Is there any way to balance the interests of state, marketplace, and society in this new construct of power? Since national economies have become deterritorialized and political interdependencies aggravate our common vulnerability, Innerarity argues that there is no solution except to move toward global governance and a denationalization of justice. Globalization tries to unify the world through technologies, the economy, and cultural products and styles, but it cannot articulate or regulate political and legal equivalents. Everyone faces the same risks to their security, food supply, health, financial stability, and environment, and these risks demand a new global politics of humanity. In her foreword, Saskia Sassen isolates the key takeaways from Innerarity’s argument and connects them even further to today’s global disruptions. DANIEL INNERARITY

“This book provides a deep reflection about the world in which we live, and the dialectics between all and nobody.

Left-Wing Melancholia Marxism, History, and Memory ENZO TRAVERSO U N COVERI N G THE MELA N C HO LI C TRA DI TI O N O F THE G LO BA L LEFT.

“Well-written, timely, and original.” —Eli Zaretsky, New School for Social Research

“A pathbreaking work that combines history and political theory with a concise, richly analytical, exciting narrative. Traverso redefines our understanding of the current regimes of temporality and challenges historians and critical theorists alike to think beyond the standard binaries between history and memory, revolution and defeat, and melancholy and politics. In other words, this book is a gem.”

The fall of the Berlin Wall marked the end of the Cold War but also the rise of a melancholic vision of history as a series of losses. For the political left, the cause lost was communism, and this trauma determined how leftists wrote the next chapter in their political struggle and how they have thought about their past since. Throughout the twentieth century, argues Left-Wing Melancholy, from classical Marxism to psychoanalysis to the advent of critical theory, a culture of defeat and its emotional overlay of melancholy have characterized the leftist understanding of the political in history and in theoretical critique.

Drawing on a vast and diverse archive in theory, testimony, and image and on such thinkers as Karl Marx, Walter Benjamin, Theodor W. Adorno, and others, the intellectual historian Enzo Traverso explores the varying nature of left melancholy as it has manifested in a feeling of guilt for not sufficiently challenging authority, in a fear of surrendering in disarray and resignation, in mourning the human costs of the past, and in a sense of failure for not realizing utopian aspirations. Yet hidden within this melancholic tradition are the resources for a renewed challenge to prevailing regimes of historicity, a passion that has the power to reignite the dialectic of revolutionary thought.

Capitalism and Desire

The Psychic Cost of Free Markets TODD MCGOWAN U N D ER STAND ING CA PI TA L I S M AS A PSYC H I C ST R AT EGY.

Why is capitalism so resilient? Despite creating vast inequalities and propping up reactionary world regimes, capitalism has many passionate defenders. But Todd McGowan argues that capitalism does not thrive because of what it withholds from some and gives to others with power. Capitalism dominates because it mimics the structure of our desire while hiding the trauma that the system inflicts upon it. People from all backgrounds enjoy what capitalism provides yet at the same time are told more and better is yet to come. Capitalism traps us by creating and sustaining an incomplete satisfaction that focuses our attention on the new, the better, and the more.

Capitalism’s parasitic relationship to our desires gives it the illusion of corresponding to our natural impulses, which is how capitalism’s defenders characterize it. By understanding this psychic strategy, McGowan hopes to divest us of our addiction to capitalist enrichment and helps us rediscover how we enjoy. By locating enjoyment in the present and not the future, McGowan frees us from our attachment to a better future and the belief that capitalism is an essential outgrowth of human nature. From this perspective, our economic, social, and political worlds open up to real political change. Eloquent and enlivened by examples from film, television, consumer culture, and everyday life, Capitalism and Desire brings a new, psychoanalytically grounded approach to political and social theory.

“McGowan’s argument is positively brilliant—almost every page brings a startling insight and every chapter compels an exciting reorientation of thought. Because of its paradigmshifting originality, Capitalism and Desire places McGowan among the most prominent critical thinkers of his generation and competes admirably with the best work of the generation before him.” —Mari Ruti, University of Toronto

Getting Risk Right

Understanding the Science of Elusive Health Risks GEOFFREY C. KABAT A N I NC I SI VE LO O K AT SO ME O F TO DAY’ S MOST CO N T ESTED HEA LTH RI SKS— BOTH REA L A N D I LLUSO RY.

Do cell phones cause brain cancer? Does BPA threaten our health? How safe are certain dietary supplements, especially those containing exotic herbs or small amounts of toxic substances? What role does HPV play in the development of cervical cancer, and is the HPV vaccine safe? In four detailed case studies, Geoffrey C. Kabat shows how science works or sometimes doesn’t and what defines these two very different outcomes.

Getting Risk Right helps general readers distinguish between claims that are supported by solid science and those that are the result of poorly designed or misinterpreted studies. By exploring different examples, Kabat shows us why certain risks are worth worrying about while others are not. Attempts to explain antiscience attitudes often focus on irrational fears and the powerful role of business interests. These factors matter, but Kabat also emphasizes the variable quality of research in contested areas of health risks and the professional, political, and methodological factors that can distort the research process. Drawing on recent work in the “meta-analysis” of biomedical research and on insights from leading thinkers, including John Ioannides, Daniel Kahneman, and Cass Sunstein, this groundbreaking book examines internal and external factors that influence what results get attention and how questionable results can be used to support a narrative concerning an alleged public health threat.

“Kabat’s writing, as usual, is phenomenally clear and expressive. His logical cadences are both airtight and a pleasure to read. His insights into the workings and misworkings of science, the sociology of science, and the interplay of personalities and organizations are penetrating and precise, and above all, original.” —Steven D. Stellman, Columbia University

How do meteorologists design forecasts for the next day’s, the next week’s, or the next month’s weather? Are some forecasts more likely to be accurate than others, and why? Making Sense of Weather and Climate takes readers through key topics in atmospheric physics and presents a cogent view of how weather relates to climate, particularly climatechange science. It is the perfect book for amateur meteorologists and weather enthusiasts, and for anyone whose livelihood depends on navigating the weather’s twists and turns. Making Sense of Weather and Climate begins by explaining the essential mechanics and characteristics of this fascinating science. The noted physics author Mark Denny also defines the crucial differences between weather and climate, and then develops from this basic knowledge a sophisticated yet clear portrait of their relation. Throughout, Denny elaborates on the role of weather forecasting in guiding politics and other aspects of human civilization. He also follows forecasting’s effect on the economy. Denny’s exploration of the science and history of a phenomenon we have long tried to master makes this book a unique companion for anyone who wants a complete picture of the environment’s individual, societal, and planetary impact. MARK DENNY

“Making Sense of Weather and Climate is perfect for anyone who wants ‘textbook’ science delivered in a format that is easily digestible and exciting to read. The book fills a niche between not only popular and college-level science but also the often separated topics of weather and climate change. Frequently presented as separate issues, Denny makes clear that they are in fact very linked.” —Scott Mandia, Suffolk County Community College

A History of Brooklyn Bridge Park recounts the grassroots, multi-voiced, and contentious effort to transform Brooklyn’s defunct piers in the mid-1980s into a beautiful, conscientiously designed park. The movement to resist commercial development on the pier sprang up spontaneously but reveals how concerned citizens came together to shape the future of their community. After winning a number of battles, park advocates collaborated to create a thoroughly unique city park that took advantage of the water and the city’s skyline, incorporating a stunning design with vibrant cultural programming.

“In A History of Brooklyn Bridge Park, Nancy Webster and David Shirley provide a highly informative

This history emphasizes the contributions, collaborations, and spirited disagreements that made the planning and construction of Brooklyn Bridge Park a model of natural urban development and publicprivate partnership. The book includes interviews with Brooklyn residents, politicians, activists, urban planners, and other key participants in the fight for the park. The story of Brooklyn Bridge Park also speaks to larger issues confronting all cities, including the development of postindustrial spaces and how to balance public and private interests without sacrificing creative vision or sustainable goals.

and fascinating history of the governmental, organizational, community, and interpersonal politics without which New York City’s newest, grand public space would not have come to be.” —Robert Beauregard, Columbia University

In Pursuit of Privilege

A History of New York City’s Upper Class and the Making of a Metropolis CLIFTON HOOD HOW UP P ER - C L ASS N E W YO R K E R S S O U G H T TO C R EAT E AND P R E S E RV E A N E XCLU S I V E WOR L D AM ID AN EV E R CH A N G I N G C I T Y.

In a history that extends from the 1750s to the present, Clifton Hood recounts upper-class New Yorkers’ struggle to create a distinct world guarded against outsiders. Despite their efforts, New York City’s upper class has been drawn into the larger story of the city both through class conflict and through their role in building New York’s cultural and economic foundations.

In Pursuit of Privilege describes the famous and infamous characters and events at the center of this extraordinary history, from the elite families and wealthy tycoons of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to the Wall Street executives of today. From the start, upper-class New Yorkers have been open and aggressive in their behavior, keen on attaining prestige, power, and wealth. Hood sharpens this characterization by merging a history of the New York economy in the eighteenth century with the story of Wall Street’s emergence as an international financial center in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as well as the dominance of New York’s financial and service sectors in the 1980s. Bringing together several decades of upheaval and change, Hood shows that New York’s upper class did not rise exclusively from the Gilded Age but rather from a relentless pursuit of privilege, affecting not just the urban elite but the city’s entire cultural, economic, and political fabric. CLIFTON HOOD

“In Pursuit of Privilege is an impressive, detailed study of the upper class in New York over a period of more than two centuries. Written engagingly, the book distinguishes itself with its long-term view of New York’s elite class, covering many of the major events in New York’s history, from the Revolutionary War to the Civil War draft riots to the rise of corporate America. It makes an important contribution to the literature on the history of New York and elite society in the United States.” —Susie Pak, St. John’s University

The First Modern Japanese The Life of Ishikawa Takuboku DONALD KEENE A BI OGRA P HY O F JA PA N ESE TA N KA MASTER I SHI KAWA TA KU BO KU, WHO P I O N EERED A N UN MI STA KA B LY M O D ERN P O ETI C STYLE.

“The First Modern Japanese is a poignant though familiar tale of the genius and premature death of a promising artist. As Keene notes, Ishikawa Takuboku was a pivotal figure and someone to consider when thinking about larger topics, such as the meaning of modernity. Keene’s insightful and compelling study of Takuboku lets us finally see the dark side of Japan’s tearful, beloved poet.” —Charles Shirō Inouye, Tufts University

Thousands of books and monographs have been devoted to the poet and critic Ishikawa Takuboku (1886–1912). Although he died at the age of twentysix and wrote many of his best-known poems in the space of a few years, his name is familiar to every literate Japanese. His early death added to the sad romance of the unhappy poet, but there has been no satisfactory biography of his life or career, even in Japanese, and only a small part of his writings have been translated. His mature poetry was based on the work of no predecessor, and he left no disciples. He stands unique.

Takuboku’s most popular poems, especially those with a humorous overlay, are often read and memorized, but his diaries and letters, though less familiar, contain rich and vivid glimpses of the poet’s thoughts and experiences. They reflect the outlook of an unconstrained man who at times behaved in a startling or even shocking manner. Despite his misdemeanors, Takuboku is regarded as a national poet, all but a saint to his admirers, especially in the regions where he lived. His refusal to conform to the Japan of the time drove him in striking directions and ranked him as the first poet of the new Japan. DONALD KEENE

Chow Chop Suey

Food and the Chinese American Journey ANNE MENDELSON HOW FOOD B ECAM E A D E FE N S E AG A I N ST MA R GINAL IZAT ION A N D A N O PPO RT U N I T Y FO R CU LT UR AL S OL IDAR I T Y A M O N G C H I N E S E I M M I G R A N TS.

Chinese food first became popular in America under the shadow of violence against Chinese aliens, a despised racial minority ineligible for United States citizenship. The founding of late-nineteenth-century “chop suey” restaurants that pitched an altered version of Cantonese cuisine to white patrons despite a virulently anti-Chinese climate is one of several pivotal events in Anne Mendelson’s thoughtful history of American Chinese food. Chow Chop Suey uses cooking to trace different stages of the Chinese community’s footing in the larger white society. Mendelson begins with the arrival of men from the poorest district of Canton Province during the Gold Rush. She describes the formation of American Chinatowns and examines the curious racial dynamic underlying the purposeful invention of hybridized Chinese American food, historically prepared by Cantonese-descended cooks for whites incapable of grasping Chinese culinary principles. Mendelson then follows the eventual abolition of anti-Chinese immigration laws and the many demographic changes that transformed the face of Chinese cooking in America during and after the Cold War. Mendelson concludes with the post1965 arrival of Chinese immigrants from Taiwan, Southeast Asia, and many regions of mainland China. As she shows, they have immeasurably enriched Chinese cooking in America but tend to form comparatively self-sufficient enclaves in which they, unlike their predecessors, are not dependent on cooking for a white clientele.

The People’s Money

How China Is Building a Global Currency PAOLA SUBACCHI T R ACKI N G THE DEVELO P MEN T O F THE REN MI N B I A N D I TS POTEN TI A L FO R GLO BA L REAC H.

“Subacchi brings a wealth of knowledge about China’s economy and politics to this fascinating and informative exploration of China’s currency, looking at how the economic giant will develop its ‘renmimbi strategy’ and take its proper place on the world’s financial stage at a time of instability, economic slowdown, and domestic social tension.” —Diane Coyle, Enlightenment Economics and University of Manchester

Many of the world’s major economies boast dominant international currencies. Not so for China. Its renminbi has lagged far behind the pound, the euro, and the dollar in global circulation—and for good reason. China has long privileged economic policies that have fueled development at the expense of the renminbi’s growth, and it has become clear that the underpowered currency is threatening China’s future. The nation’s leaders now face the daunting task of strengthening the currency without losing control of the nation’s economy or risking total collapse. How are they approaching this challenge?

In The People’s Money, Paola Subacchi introduces readers to China’s monetary system, mapping its evolution over the past century and, particularly, its transformation since Deng Xiaoping took power in 1978. She revisits the policies that fostered the country’s economic rise while at the same time purposefully creating a currency of little use beyond China’s borders. She shows the key to understanding China’s economic predicament lies in past and future strategies for the renminbi. The financial turbulence following the global crisis of 2008, coupled with China’s ambitions as a global creditor and chief economic power, has forced the nation to reckon with the limited international circulation of the renminbi. Increasing the renminbi’s reach will play a major role in securing China’s future. PAOLA SUBACCHI

A Theory of Imperialism

UTSA PATNAIK AND PRABHAT PATNAIK

In A Theory of Imperialism, the economists Utsa Patnaik and Prabhat Patnaik present a new theory of the origins and mechanics of capitalism that sounds an alarm about its ongoing viability. Their theory centers on trade between the core economies of the global North and the tropical and subtropical countries of the global South and considers how the demand for commodities (such as agricultural products and oil) from the South has perpetuated and solidified an imperialistic relationship. The Patnaiks explore the dynamics of this process and discuss innovations that could allow the economies of the South to achieve greater prosperity without damaging the economies of the North. The result is an original theory of imperialism that brings to light the crippling limitations of neoliberal capitalism. A Theory of Imperialism also includes a response by David Harvey, who interprets the agrarian system differently and sees other factors affecting trade between the North and the South. A rejoinder from the Patnaiks follows. Their debate is one of the most provocative exchanges yet over the future of the global economy as resources grow thin, populations explode, and universal prosperity becomes ever more elusive. UTSA PATNAIK

Tainted Witness

Why We Doubt What Women Say About Their Lives LEIGH GILMORE H OW DO UBT ATTAC HES TO WO MEN ’ S TESTI MO N Y.

In 1991, Anita Hill brought testimony and scandal into America’s living rooms during televised Senate confirmation hearings in which she detailed the sexual harassment she had suffered at the hands of Clarence Thomas. The male Senate Judiciary Committee refused to take Hill seriously, and the veracity of Hill’s claims were sullied in the mainstream media. Hill was defamed as “a little bit nutty and a little bit slutty,” and Thomas was confirmed. The Anita Hill case shows how a tainted witness is not who someone is, but what someone can become.

Tainted Witness elucidates how persistent and pernicious patterns of doubt attach to women who bring forward accounts of sexual and racial violence. Reactions to Anita Hill’s testimony as well as Rigoberta Menchú’s account of genocide in Guatemala, contemporary memoirs that chronicle experiences of gendered and racialized violence, and news stories like Nafissatou Diallo’s claim that Dominique Strauss-Kahn raped her, demonstrate the reflexive processes of judgment that discredit women’s complex accounts of harm. The accelerated tempo of scandal is crucial to tainting women witnesses. The rush to judgment encourages framing testimonial conflicts in terms of who is telling the truth and who is lying, with the presumption that this is an adequate and meaningful testimonial test. Such a framing, however, prevents witnesses from providing adequate context for their testimony and especially elides histories of slavery and colonialism.

“Tainted Witness is an important, relevant, often brilliant book. It further establishes Gilmore as one of the best critics writing today on the intersection of feminism and life narrative.” —Hillary Chute, author of Graphic Women: Life Narrative and Contemporary Comics

“Tainted Witness displays, once more, Gilmore’s remarkable ability to hone in on the most interesting, provocative, or instructive moments in any historical situation or text and then say memorable and highly useful things about them.” —Craig Howes, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa

Teenage Suicide Notes

An Ethnography of Self-Harm TERRY WILLIAMS

“Picturing myself dying in a way I choose myself seems so comforting, healing and heroic. I’d look at my wrists, watch the blood seeping, and be a spectator in my last act of self-determination. By having lost all my self-respect it seems like the last pride I own, determining the time I die.” —Kyra V., seventeen

Reading the confessions of a teenager contemplating suicide helps us understand why self-harm has become so prevalent, especially in the United States. What makes death so attractive, so liberating, and so inevitable for so many? In Teenage Suicide Notes, the sociologist Terry Williams pores over the writings of a diverse group of troubled youths to better grasp the motivations behind teenage suicide and to humanize those at risk of taking their own lives. Williams evaluates young people in rural and urban contexts and across race, class, gender, and sexual orientation. His approach, which combines sensitive portrayals with objective sociological analysis, adds a clarifying dimension to the fickle and often frustrating behavior of adolescents. Williams reads between the lines of his subjects’ seemingly straightforward reflections on alienation, agency, euphoria, and loss, and investigates how this cocktail of emotions can create an overwhelming and impossible desperation. Williams situates these notes at the center of teenage life, linking them to violence, depression, anxiety, religion, peer pressure, sexual identity, family dynamics, and incidents of abuse. He captures the currents that turn self-destruction into an act of self-determination and proposes more effective solutions to resolving the suicide crisis. TERRY WILLIAMS

“Always the compassionate listener and masterful ethnographer, Williams courageously takes on teenage suicide, one of the nation’s most vexing and tragic subjects. He understands the problem as a father, mentor, teacher, and friend of victims and their families. May the voices of the despairing teenagers whom Terry has presented here be heard throughout the nation.” —William Kornblum, Doctoral Program in Sociology, Graduate Center, City University of New York

As Wide as the World Is Wise Reinventing Philosophical Anthropology MICHAEL JACKSON U N D E RSTA N DI N G THE HUMA N CO N DI TI O N THRO UGH ET H N OGRA P HY A N D C RI TI CA L P HI LOSO P HY.

Philosophy and anthropology have long debated questions of difference: rationality versus irrationality, abstraction versus concreteness, modern versus premodern. What if these disciplines instead focused on the commonalities of human experience? Would this effort bring philosophers and anthropologists closer together? Would it lead to greater insights across historical and cultural divides?

In As Wide as the World Is Wise, Michael Jackson encourages philosophers and anthropologists to mine the space between localized and globalized perspectives, to resolve empirically the distinctions between the one and the many and between specific forms of life and life itself. His project balances remote, epistemological practice with immanent reflection, promoting a more situated, embodied, and sensuous approach to the world and its in-between spaces. Drawing on a lifetime of ethnographic fieldwork in West Africa and Aboriginal Australia, Jackson resets the language and logic of academic thought from the standpoint of other lifeworlds. He extends Kant’s cosmopolitan ideal to include all human societies, achieving a radical break with elite ideas of the subjective and a more expansive conception of truth.

“Jackson’s marvelous book delivers ethnographic evidence for philosophical issues originating from the necessities of ordinary life; reminding us that philosophy always has been rooted in various media that express the diversities of life forms, their norms and values, and their existential truths and wisdom.” —Thomas Schwarz Wentzer, Aarhus University

Love in the Dark

Philosophy by Another Name DIANE ENNS A PER S ONAL AND P H I LOS O PH I CA L ACCO U N T O F T H E AM B IGUIT Y OF ER OT I C LOV E .

Intimate love requires exceptional vulnerability that opens us to suffering, sacrifice, and loss. Is it always worth the risk? Consulting philosophers, writers, and poets who draw insights from material life, Love in the Dark shines a light on the limits of erotic love, exploring its paradoxes through personal and philosophical reflections. Explicitly situating experience at the center of her inquiry, Diane Enns conducts philosophy “by another name,” elaborating the ambiguities and risks of love with visceral clarity.

Love in the Dark claims that intimacy must accept risk as long as love does not destroy the self. Erotic love inspires an inexplicable affirmation of another but can erode the autonomy and vulnerability necessary for love. There is a limit to love, and appreciating this limit requires a rethinking of love’s liberal paradigms, which Enns traces back to the hostility toward the body and eros in Christianity and the Western philosophical tradition. Against a legacy of an abstract and sanitized love, Enns recasts erotic attachment as an event linked to conditional circumstances. The value of love lies in its intensity and depth, and its end does not negate love’s truth or significance. Writing in a lyrical, genre-defying style Enns delineates the paradoxes of love in its relation to lust, abuse, suffering, and grief to reach an account of love faithful to human experience.

The Gnostic New Age

How a Countercultural Spirituality Revolutionized Religion from Antiquity to Today APRIL D. DECONICK R E V E ALI N G THE O RI GI N S O F TO DAY’ S SP I RI TUA LI TY I N T HE GN OSTI C TRA DI TI O N .

Gnosticism, which emerged in the second century, proposed that human beings were manifestations of the divine, unsettling the hierarchical foundations of the ancient world. Subversive and revolutionary, Gnostics taught that prayer and mediation could bring human beings into an ecstatic spiritual union with a transcendent deity. This mystical strain affected not just Christianity but many other religions, and it characterizes our understanding of the purpose and meaning of religion today.

In The Gnostic New Age, April D. DeConick recovers this vibrant, underground history to prove that Gnosticism was not suppressed or defeated by the Catholic Church long ago, nor was the movement a fabrication to justify the violent repression of alternative forms of Christianity. Gnosticism alleviated existential suffering for millions, soothing feelings of alienation through the promise of renewal as God. DeConick begins in ancient Egypt and follows with the rise of Gnosticism in the Middle Ages, the advent of theosophy and other occult movements in the Victorian era and early twentieth century, and contemporary New Age spiritual philosophies. Her work emphasizes the universal, countercultural appeal of a movement that embodies much more than a simple challenge to religious authority.

“The Gnostic New Age represents a paradigm shift in our understanding of religion and breaks new ground in scholarship on Gnosticism.” —Birger A. Pearson, University of California, Santa Barbara

“The Gnostic New Age redefines ancient Gnostics as a particular type of spiritual seeker akin to present-day New Agers—people dissatisfied with contemporary religions, spiritually hungry, and often politically disaffected.” —Nicola Denzey Lewis, Brown University

Al-Qaeda’s Revenge

The 2004 Madrid Train Bombings FERNANDO REINARES Translated by Christopher Wall With a Foreword by Bruce Riedel

Al-Qaeda’s Revenge tells the story behind the events of March 11, 2004, when an al-Qaeda-inspired terrorist cell bombed commuter trains in Madrid. The narrative runs from the development of an al-Qaeda conspiracy in Spain through the 2007 trial and conviction of the 3/11 bombers, concluding with the thwarting in 2008 of an al-Qaeda bomb plot in Barcelona. Fernando Reinares had privileged access to judicial and intelligence documents and draws on personal interviews with officials in Spain and elsewhere. Al-Qaeda’s Revenge is Spain’s counterpart to The 9/11 Commission Report, a best-seller that condemned al-Qaeda for a crime that changed the way Spain and Europe have responded to modern terrorism.

A History of the Iraq Crisis

France, the United States, and Iraq, 1991-2003 FRÉDÉRIC BOZO Translated by Susan Emanuel

“The only serious study in any language of Franco-American relations during the Iraq crisis. It challenges the received wisdom and situates the policies of the George W. Bush administration in their true historical context.” —Jolyon Howorth, author of Security and Defence

Based on exclusive French archival sources and numerous interviews with former officials in both France and the United States, A History of the Iraq Crisis retraces the international exchange that culminated in the 2003 Iraq conflict. It shows how and why the Iraq crisis led to a confrontation between two longtime allies unprecedented since the time of Charles de Gaulle, and it exposes the deep and ongoing divisions within Europe, the Atlantic alliance, and the international community as a whole.

Extreme Domesticity

A View from the Margins SUSAN FRAIMAN

A N E W THEO RY O F DO MESTI C I TY DEP I C TED THRO UGH A LT E R N ATI VE HO MEMA K I N G.

Domesticity gets a bad rap. We equate it with stasis, bourgeois accumulation, banality, and conservative family values. Yet in Extreme Domesticity, Susan Fraiman reminds us that keeping house is just as likely to involve dislocation, economic insecurity, creative improvisation, and queered notions of family. Her book links terms seen as antithetical: domestic knowledge coinciding with female masculinity, feminism, and divorce; domestic routines in Victorian poverty, twentieth-century immigration, and new millennial homelessness. Far from being exclusively middle-class, domestic concerns are shown to be all the more urgent and ongoing when shelter is precarious.

“Extreme Domesticity is a startlingly original work that not only offers a contemporary updating of

Fraiman’s reformulation frees domesticity from associations with conformity and sentimentality. Ranging across periods and genres, and diversifying the archive of domestic depictions, Fraiman’s readings include novels by Elizabeth Gaskell, Sandra Cisneros, Jamaica Kincaid, Leslie Feinberg, and Lois-Ann Yamanaka; Edith Wharton’s decorating guide; popular women’s magazines; and ethnographic studies of homeless subcultures. Underlining the labor and know-how needed to produce the space we call “home,” Extreme Domesticity vindicates domestic practices and their centrality to everyday life. At the same time, it remains well aware of domesticity’s dark side. Neither a romance of artisanal housewifery nor an apology for conservative notions of home, Extreme Domesticity stresses the heterogeneity of households and probes the multiplicity of domestic meanings.

Since the publication of Sex Trafficking in 2007, Siddharth Kara has continued to travel across countries and continents, documenting the local factors and economic forces that support sexual slavery worldwide. His riveting encounters with victims and traffickers informed his screenplay for Trafficked (2016), now a major motion picture. The film features familiar figures from Sex Trafficking and the shocking conditions of their exploitation. It also includes cases Kara has uncovered since his book debuted.

This paperback edition of Sex Trafficking includes a new preface by Kara in which he discusses his findings and updates the statistics relating to his business and economic analysis of contemporary slavery. Over fifteen years, Kara has recorded nearly 900 cases of sex trafficking in 41 countries and has advised on numerous legal, tactical, and policy efforts for abolishing modern-day slavery across the globe. Sex Trafficking continues to lead as a resource for those hoping to expose this hidden evil and eradicate its practice once and for all.

The Levittowners

Learning to Labor

Ways of Life and Politics in a New Suburban Community

How Working-Class Kids Get Working-Class Jobs

HERBERT J. GANS

PAUL WILLIS

New introduction by Harvey Molotch

Updated introduction by Stanley Aronowitz

“The Levittowners does more than illuminate for us American suburbia; it also contributes to our understanding of that elusive matter, the quality of American life.” —Nathan Glazer, Harvard University

In 1955 Levitt and Sons, Inc., purchased almost all of Willingboro Township, New Jersey, and built 1,200 homes. This suburban experiment was the basis for one of the most famous case studies in urban sociology, The Levittowners. This classic work examines the beginnings of group life, the founding of churches, the emergence of party politics, family and individual adaptation, and other dimensions of the suburban experience. A new introduction reflects on the Levittown community after twenty years. HERBERT J. GANS

is professor of sociology at Columbia

University. He is also the author of The Urban Villagers, People and Plans, More Equality, Popular Culture and High Culture, and Deciding What’s News.

A landmark work in sociology, cultural studies, and ethnography since its publication in 1977, Learning to Labor is a provocative and troubling account of how education links culture and class in the reproduction of social hierarchy. Paul Willis observed a working-class friendship group in an English industrial town in the West Midlands in their final years at school. These “lads” rebelled against the rules and values of the school, creating their own culture of opposition. Yet Willis shows how resistance can also constitute and reinforce the social order. His work shows how education can perpetuate hierarchies, which is important at a time when education is trumpeted as a panacea for inequality. PAUL WILLIS

is a professor in the faculty of education at

Beijing Normal University. His books include The Ethnographic Imagination (2000), Moving Culture (1990), and Profane Culture (1978).

The Columbia University College of Dental Medicine, 1916–2016 A Dental School on University Lines ALLAN FORMICOLA A HISTORY C EL EB R AT I N G O N E H U N D R E D Y E A R S O F G RO UND B R EAK ING WO R K I N D E N TA L M E D I CI N E .

In 1916, Columbia University acquired the New York Post-graduate School of Dentistry and the New York School of Dental Hygiene and established its own College of Dental Medicine. The move was a powerful signal of a field on the rise. It recognized dental medicine as a key component of individual and social well-being and initiated a monumental era in medical innovation and progressive publichealth outcomes. This hundred-year history shares the story of a medical field in the making. It recounts the institutional battles and research controversies that set the terms for the development and practice of dentistry. The assimilation of the dental school into the university system was not smooth. Rivalries played out in public and in private; traditionalists fought the inclusion of a young and evolving medical approach. Once the school found its footing, the College of Dental Medicine developed rapidly and by the end of the twentieth century had launched programs to immeasurably help impoverished and underserved communities worldwide. The school’s work now includes transitioning the field into the digital age and effecting even greater change in the lives of those without access to high-quality dental care. Featuring fascinating biographical details of the school’s major teachers, administrators, and graduates, this book cements the reputation of Columbia University’s College of Dental Medicine as a global leader in advancing the public good.

Life and Loss at the Edge of Extinction THOM VAN DOOREN “Readers are treated to beautiful prose about what it means to the birds themselves and to us to lose these amazing beings.” —Psychology Today

about evolution.” —Times Higher Education

The origin, extinction, and evolution of species—interconnected in the web of life as “eternal ephemera”—are the concern of evolutionary biology. In this riveting work, renowned paleontologist Niles Eldredge follows leading thinkers, from Lamarck and Darwin to Steven Jay Gould, who revitalized evolutionary theory with their concept of punctuated equilibria. Filled with insights into evolutionary biology and told with a rich affection for the scientific arena, this book celebrates the relationship between scientific thinking and its subjects. “A must-read for armchair biologists!” —Booklist (starred review) NILES ELDREDGE

is a paleontologist formerly on the

curatorial staff of the American Museum of Natural History.

Thom van Dooren puts philosophy into conversation with the natural sciences and his ethnographic encounters to vivify the significance of extinction. Flight Ways incorporates the particularities of real animals and their worlds: North Pacific albatrosses, Indian vultures, an endangered colony of penguins in Australia, Hawaiian crows, and the iconic whooping cranes of North America. Written in moving prose, the book takes stock of what is lost when a life-form disappears from the world. “Masterful. . .

Étienne Balibar boldly confronts the insidious causes of worldwide violence, racism, nationalism, and ethnic cleansing, as well as mass poverty and dispossession. Through a novel synthesis of theory and empirical studies of contemporary violence, he pushes past the limits of political philosophy to introduce a new understanding of politics as antiviolence.

Rahel Jaeggi reconceives alienation as the absence of a meaningful relationship to oneself and others, which manifests in feelings of helplessness and the despondent acceptance of ossified social roles and expectations. A revived approach to alienation helps critical social theory engage with such phenomena as meaninglessness, isolation, and indifference and rethink social pathologies.

Paul W. Kahn finds in popular films a new setting for a philosophical inquiry into timeless themes. He explores the nature of action and interpretation and narratives of politics, family, and faith. Engaging with genres as diverse as romantic comedy, slasher film, and pornography, Kahn explores the social imaginary through which we create and maintain a meaningful world.

The Economics of Air Pollution in China

Efficiency, Finance, and Varieties of Industrial Policy

MA JUN

JOSEPH E. STIGLITZ, EDITORS

Suffocating smog regularly envelops Chinese metropolises from Beijing to Shanghai, clouding the sustainability of China’s growth. Air pollutants do not discriminate between the rich and the poor, the politician and the average worker. They put everyone’s health and economic prosperity at risk, creating future costs that are difficult to calculate. Yet many people, including some in China, are concerned that addressing environmental challenges will jeopardize economic growth.

A rich set of complimentary institutions and learning, industrial and technology policies—often subsumed under the term “industrial policy”—have sustained economic growth from Britain’s industrial revolution onward. This volume examines the theoretical and historical role of industrial policy and explores what it can offer developed and developing economies.

Achieving Better and Cleaner Growth

In The Economics of Air Pollution in China, the leading Chinese economist Ma Jun makes the case that the trade-off between growth and environment is not inevitable. In his ambitious proposal to tackle severe air pollution and reduce the level in the air of so-called PM 2.5 particles—microscopic pollutants that lodge in lungs—Ma Jun argues that in targeting pollution, China has a real opportunity to undertake significant structural reforms that would support longterm growth. Rooted in rigorous analyses and evidence-based projections, Ma Jun’s “big bang” proposal aims to mitigate pollution and facilitate a transition to a greener and more sustainable growth model. MA JUN

is chief economist at the research bureau of the

AKBAR NOMAN AND

The book features essays from experts invested in the expansion of industrial policies, and topics discussed include the most effective use of industrial policies in learning economies, development finance, and stimulating investment in regional and global contexts. Also included are in-depth case studies of experiences with development finance, including in Japan and India, and an essay that revisits the theoretical and conceptual foundations of industrial policy from a structural-economics perspective. The collection concludes with strategies for facilitating quality growth, realizing sustainable manufacturing development, and encouraging countries to industrialize around their natural resources.

Experiments in Democracy

Human Embryo Research and the Politics of Bioethics J. BENJAMIN HURLBUT

Human embryo research touches upon such strongly felt moral convictions that debate over its development has become a moral and political imperative. From in vitro fertilization to embryonic-stem-cell research, cloning, and gene editing, Americans have repeatedly struggled with how to define the moral status of the human embryo, whether to limit its experimental uses, and how to contend with sharply divided public moral perspectives on governing science.

Experiments in Democracy presents a history of American debates over human embryo research from the late 1960s to the present, exploring their crucial role in shaping norms, practices, and institutions of deliberation governing the ethical challenges of modern bioscience. J. Benjamin Hurlbut details how scientists, bioethicists, policy makers, and other public figures have attempted to answer a question of great consequence: how should the public think about aspects of science and technology that effect fundamental dimensions of human life? Through a study of one of U.S. history’s most significant science-policy controversies, Experiments in Democracy sheds light on American society’s evolving embrace of science’s most challenging breakthroughs and, more generally, its complex democratic interaction with science.

Sport

A Biological and Cultural Perspective JAY SCHULKIN “A fresh and excellent view of sport. Schulkin illuminates this fascinating topic by bringing to bear a powerful combination of historical, biological, and psychological perspectives.” —Kent Berridge, University of Michigan

In Sport the neuroscientist Jay Schulkin argues that biology and culture blend together seamlessly in the realm of sport, propelling us toward greater physical and intellectual achievement. He surveys history, literature, and art and engages the work of philosophers and the latest psychological and sociological research. Schulkin connects sport’s basic neural requirements, including spatial and temporal awareness, inference, memory, agency, direction, competitive spirit, and endurance, to the demands of other human activities. He affirms sport’s natural role as a creative evolutionary catalyst and a fundamental part of human life. JAY SCHULKIN

Frustrated Democracy in Post-Soviet Azerbaijan AUDREY L. ALTSTADT “Altstadt is the finest American scholar on Azerbaijan. She has the perspective of a historian complemented by current contacts inside and outside of Azerbaijan and a strong policy sense.” —Richard Kauzlarich, former U.S. ambassador to Azerbaijan

Frustrated Democracy in PostSoviet Azerbaijan follows a newly independent oil-rich former Soviet republic as it adopts a Western model of democratic government and then turns toward corrupt authoritarianism. Altstadt’s work draws on instances of censorship in the Azerbaijani press, research by embedded experts and nongovernmental and international organizations, and interviews with diplomats and businesspeople. The book is an essential companion to Alstadt’s earlier works, The Azerbaijani Turks: Power and Identity Under Russian Rule and The Politics of Culture in Soviet Azerbaijan, 1920–1940. AUDREY L.

Protection Amid Chaos

The Creation of Property Rights in Palestinian Refugee Camps

Second Edition RICARDO BLAUG AND JOHN SCHWARZMANTEL, EDITORS

Protection Amid Chaos follows refugees as they develop binding claims on assets and resources in challenging political and economic spaces. Focusing on Palestinians living in refugee camps in Lebanon and Jordan, the book shows how the first to arrive developed legitimate property-rights claims based on legal knowledge retained from their homeland. As camps increased in complexity, refugees merged their informal institutions with the formal rules of political outsiders, devising a stronger system for protecting their assets and culture from predation and state incorporation. Nadya Hajj conducted interviews with two hundred refugees and consults memoirs, legal documents, and findings in the United Nations Relief Works Agency archives.

Democracy is an essential collection of source texts on the value of democracy, key concepts and practices, theoretical perspectives, and contemporary challenges. The volume includes affirmations of democracy by Machiavelli, Hobbes, Madison, Mill, Lincoln, and Paine. It features Rousseau and Kant on freedom and autonomy; Locke on equality; Burke and Bakunin on representation; Wollheim and Tocqueville on majority rule; and Crick on citizenship. Conservative, Marxist, socialist, and feminist critiques are followed by new sections on the market, civil society, participation, the internet, nationalism, religion, multiculturalism, cosmopolitan democracy, and violence.

Revised Edition

RICHARD PLUNZ Foreword by Kenneth T. Jackson

A standard in the field since its publication in 1992, A History of Housing in New York City traces New York’s housing development from 1850 to the present. Richard Plunz explores the housing of all classes, with comparative discussion of types, from single-family homes to highrise apartment buildings. His analysis incorporates the broader political and cultural development of New York. This revised edition extends the book’s scope, covering the recent housing-bubble crisis, the rebound and gentrification of the five boroughs, and the ecological issues facing the next generation of New Yorkers. More than 300 illustrations are integrated throughout the text, depicting housing plans, neighborhood changes, and city architecture over the past 130 years. RICHARD PLUNZ

The Politics of Being has played a seminal role in the debates over the intellectual consequences of Heidegger’s politics. This expanded edition builds on Richard Wolin’s pathbreaking interpretation of Heidegger’s political thought, adding analysis of the philosopher’s seminars and lectures, a new edition of Heidegger’s letters, and recently published eyewitness testimony. Wolin shows convincingly that philosophy and politics cannot be disentangled in Heidegger’s work. RICHARD WOLIN

is distinguished

In Friendship Reconsidered, P. E. Digeser sets forth a series of ideals that appreciates friendship’s many forms and dynamic relationship to individuality, citizenship, political and legal institutions, and international relations. She argues that as a set of practices resembling one another, friendship calls our attention to the importance of norms of friendly action and the mutual recognition of motive. She shows how friendship can provide islands of stability in a sea of citizen-strangers and, in a delegitimized political environment, a bridge between differences.

The Bhāgavata Purāna Selected Readings

RAVI M. GUPTA AND KENNETH R. VALPEY, EDITORS

The Quotidian Revolution

A Dharma Reader

Vernacularization, Religion, and the Premodern Public Sphere in India CHRISTIAN LEE NOVETZKE

The Bhāgavata Purāna has grown in vibrancy through centuries of performance, interpretation, worship, and debate. This annotated translation and detailed analysis shows how one text can have such enduring appeal. Key selections from the Bhāgavata Purāna are faithfully translated, while all remaining sections are concisely summarized, providing the reader with a continuous and comprehensive narrative. Detailed endnotes explain unfamiliar concepts, and several essays elucidate the rich philosophical and religious debates found in the Sanskrit commentaries. This book is the companion volume to Ravi M. Gupta and Kenneth R. Valpey’s Bhāgavata Purāna: Sacred Text and Living Tradition (Columbia, 2013). RAVI M. GUPTA

In thirteenth-century Maharashtra, a new vernacular literature emerged to challenge the hegemony of Sanskrit, a language largely restricted to men of high caste. The Quotidian Revolution examines this pivotal moment in Indian literature, religion, and public life by investigating courtly donative Marathi inscriptions alongside the first extant texts of Marathi literature: the Līlācaritra (1278) and the Jñāneśvarī (1290). Drawing on political anthropology and contemporary theories of social justice, religion, and the public sphere, The Quotidian Revolution explores the circumstances of this new discourse oriented around everyday life and its widening of public debate in a way that presages key aspects of Indian modernity and democracy.

Classical Indian Law

TRANSLATED AND EDITED BY PATRICK OLIVELLE “An outstanding and innovative work, from the world’s leading authority on Indian Dharma.” —Dominik Wujastyk, University of Alberta

A Dharma Reader traces the definition, epistemology, procedure, and process of Indian law from the third century BCE to the middle ages. Its breadth captures the centuries-long struggle by Indian thinkers to theorize law in a multiethnic and pluralist society. The volume includes new and accessible translations of key texts, notes that explain the significance of selections, and an introduction that summarizes the development of various disciplines in intellectual-historical terms. “A Dharma Reader provides nuance and depth that reveal the sophistication and cogency of India’s intellectual history in ways that no previous work has done.” —Donald R.

A Tantric Couple in Modern Tibet HOLLY GAYLEY

Reading the Mahāvamsa

The Literary Aims of a Theravāda Buddhist History KRISTIN SCHEIBLE

Love Letters from Golok chronicles the courtship between two Buddhist tantric masters, Tāre Lhamo (1938–2002) and Namtrul Rinpoche (1944–2011), and their passion for reinvigorating Buddhism in eastern Tibet during the post-Mao era. In fifty-six letters exchanged from 1978 to 1980, Tāre Lhamo and Namtrul Rinpoche envisioned a shared destiny to “heal the damage” done to Buddhism during the years leading up to and including the Cultural Revolution. Holly Gayley retrieves the personal and prophetic dimensions of their courtship and its consummation in a twentyyear religious career that informs issues of gender and agency in Buddhism, cultural preservation among Tibetan communities, and alternative histories for minorities in China. This is the first collection of “love letters” to surface in Tibetan literature. HOLLY GAYLEY

“This groundbreaking book successfully provides a corrective in the study of Buddhism and Sri Lanka by going beyond the received, common interpretations of the great chronicle text, the Mahāvamsa.” —Bradley Clough, University of Montana

Reading the Mahāvamsa advocates a new, literary approach to this text by revealing its embedded reading advice (to experience sam.vega and pasāda) and affective work of metaphors (the Buddha’s dharma as light) and salient characters (nāgas). Kristin Scheible sees the narrative’s slippery characters and potent and playful metaphors as techniques for refocusing the reader’s attention on the text’s emotional aims. Her work explains the Mahāvamsa’s motivational role in contemporary Sri Lankan Buddhist and nationalist circles. KRISTIN SCHEIBLE

Jews and the American Religious Landscape UZI REBHUN

Jews and the American Religious Landscape explores major, complementary facets of American Judaism and Jewish life through a comprehensive analysis of contemporary demographic data. Focusing on geographic location, socioeconomic stratification, family dynamics, group identification, and political orientation, the volume adds empirical value to questions concerning the strengths of Jews as a religious and cultural group in America and the strategies they have developed to integrate successfully into a Christian society. Drawing on findings made available by the Pew Research Center, Jews and the American Religious Landscape is rich in meaningful information thoughtfully construed, presenting a remarkable portrait of what it means to be an American Jew today.

Owen Hulatt seeks to deepen our understanding of Theodor W. Adorno’s theory of truth and the nonidentical and his claim that both philosophy and artworks are capable of being true. Hulatt sees Adorno’s theory of philosophical and aesthetic truth as unified. For Adorno, truth is produced when rhetorical “texture” combines with cognitive “performance,” leading to the breakdown of concepts that mediate the experience of the consciousness. Both philosophy and art manifest these features, although philosophy enacts these conceptual issues directly, while art does so obliquely. OWEN HULATT

“A wide-ranging, interdisciplinary work. It also makes significant and original contributions to the fields of philosophical anthropology, existential phenomenology, and theology—not to mention semantics and even ethics.” —Martin Woessner, City College of New York’s Center for Worker Education

Ernst Tugendhat sees mysticism as a response to a deep need for peace of mind. We experience this need in connection to our discursive practices that relate us to and differentiate us from one another and the world we inhabit for a short period of time. This condition, Tugendhat shows, prompts us to “step back” from our egocentric concerns. Mysticism satisfies our need for self-transcendence born from the tensions arising from language, social interaction, and mortality. is professor

The Philosophy of the Mòzi˘ The First Consequentialists CHRIS FRASER

China’s Hegemony

Four Hundred Years of East Asian Domination JI-YOUNG LEE

Mohism was an ancient Chinese philosophical movement founded in the fifth century BCE by the charismatic artisan Mòzi˘, or “Master Mo.” Its practitioners advanced a consequentialist ethics, along with fascinating political, logical, and epistemological theories, that set the terms of philosophical argumentation and reflection in China for generations to come. The Philosophy of the Mòzi˘ situates the movement’s rise and decline within Chinese history. The book also emphasizes Mohism’s relevance to modern systems of thought. Mohism anticipated Western utilitarianism by more than two thousand years. Its epistemology, logic, and psychology provide compelling alternatives to contemporary Western mentalism. More than a straightforward account of Mohist principles and practice, this volume immerses readers in the Mohist mindset and clarifies its underpinning of Chinese philosophical discourse.

“A jewel of a book. Utterly clear-headed, it deals with a broad swath of history by focusing on carefully selected episodes.” —Peter J. Katzenstein, Cornell University

Focusing on China-Korea-Japan dynamics of East Asian international politics during the Ming and High Qing periods, Ji-Young Lee offers fascinating details of war and peace in Asian international relations, addressing questions such as why Japan fought a war against Sino-Korean coalition in the late sixteenth century; why Korea attempted to strike militarily at the Ming empire in the late fourteenth century; and how Japan created a miniature international order posing as the center of Asia in lieu of the Qing empire in the seventeenth century. Lee finds hegemony in Asia is a domestic and international phenomenon with implications for the contemporary era. JI-YOUNG LEE

Centrifugal Empire

Central-Local Relations in China JAE HO CHUNG

Staging Chinese Revolution

Theater, Film, and the Afterlives of Propaganda XIAOMEI CHEN

“This book is extremely comprehensive. It is well researched, contains a great deal of useful material, and should be widely read by specialists.” —Joseph Fewsmith III, Boston University

Despite the destabilizing pull of a vast territory and a large multicultural population, the centralized government of the People’s Republic of China has held together for decades. By examining Beijing’s strategies for maintaining control even in the reformist post-Mao era, Centrifugal Empire reveals the unique thinking behind China’s approach to local governance, its historical roots, and its deflection of divergent interests. The book examines the logic, mode, and instrument of local governance established by the People’s Republic, and then compares the current system to the practices of its dynastic predecessors. It reveals how communist instruments of local governance echo imperial institutions while exposing the regime’s savvy adaptation to contemporary problems. JAE HO CHUNG

is professor of international relations and

director of the Program on U.S.-China Relations at Seoul

Staging Chinese Revolution surveys fifty years of theatrical propaganda performances in China, revealing a dynamic, commercial capacity in works often dismissed as artifacts of censorship. Spanning the 1960s through the 2010s, Xiaomei Chen reads films, plays, operas, and television shows from an interdisciplinary and comparative perspective, demonstrating how, in a socialist state with “capitalist characteristics,” propaganda performance turns biographies, memoirs, and war stories into mainstream ideological commodities, legitimizing the state and its right to rule. Chen treats Chinese performance as an extended form of political theater confronting critical issues of commemoration, nostalgia, state rituals, and contested history. It is through these reenactments that three generations of revolutionary leaders loom in extraordinary ways over Chinese politics and culture. XIAOMEI CHEN

Record of Daily Knowledge and Collected Poems and Essays Selections

Translated and Edited by Ian Johnston

Gu Yanwu pioneered the late-Ming- and early-Qing-era practice of Han Learning, or Evidential Learning, favoring practical over theoretical approaches to knowledge. He strongly encouraged scholars to return to the simple, ethical precepts of early Confucianism and in, Rizhi lu (Record of Daily Knowledge), he applied this paradigm to literature, government, economics, history, education, and philology. This volume includes translations of selected essays from Rizhi lu and Gu Yanwu’s Shiwen Ji (Collected Poems and Essays), along with an introduction explaining the personal and political dimensions of the scholar’s work. (1613-1682) was born in the late years of the

Ming Dynasty. He led an itinerant and eventful life, writing on a wide range of subjects. After his death, his writings, when finally published, had a profound and enduring influence. IAN JOHNSTON

The Shenzi Fragments

is an independent scholar and translator.

The Shenzi Fragments is the first complete translation in any Western language of the extent work of Shen Dao (350–275 BCE). This volume contains a translation and analysis of the Shenzi fragments, explaining their distillation of the potent political theories circulating in China during the Warring States period, along with their seminal relationship to the Taoist and Legalist traditions and the philosophies of the Lüshi Chunqiu and the Huainanzi. These fragments outline a rudimentary theory of political order modeled on the natural world that recognizes the role of human self-interest in maintaining stable rule. Casting the natural world as an independent, amoral system, Shen Dao situates the source of moral judgment firmly within the human sphere, prompting political philosophy to develop in realistic directions.

Chinese History and Culture volumes 1 and 2 bring Ying-shih Yü’s extraordinary oeuvre to English-speaking readers. Spanning two thousand years of social, intellectual, and political change, the essays in these volumes investigate two central questions through all aspects of Chinese life: as an ancient civilization, what core values sustained Chinese culture through centuries of upheaval, and in what ways did these values survive or Westernize in modern times?

Volume 2 of Chinese History and Culture addresses the rise of Qing Confucianism, the development of the Dai Zhen and Zhu Xi traditions, and the response of the historian Zhang Xuecheng to the Dai Zhen approach. It takes stock of the importance of Cao Xueqin’s eighteenth-century masterpiece Honglou meng (Dream of the Red Chamber) and the influence of Sun Yat-sen’s Three Principles of the People, as well as the radicalization of China in the twentieth century.

Volume 1

Volume 1 explores how the Dao was reformulated, expanded, defended, and preserved by Chinese intellectuals up to the seventeenth century. Essays incorporate the evolving conception of the soul and the afterlife in pre- and post-Buddhist China, the significance of eating practices and social etiquette, the move toward greater individualism, the rise of the neo-Daoist movement, the spread of Confucian ethics, and the growth of merchant culture and capitalism. They provide a true panorama of Chinese culture’s continuities and transition during its formative centuries. YING-SHIH YÜ

For Nirvana

108 Zen Sijo Poems CHO OH-HYUN Translated by Heinz Insu Fenkl Introduction by Kwon Youngmin

Writing under the Buddhist name Musan, the Zen priest Cho Oh-Hyun has composed hundreds of poems in seclusion, many in the sijo form, a relatively fixed syllabic style similar to Japanese haiku and tanka. This collection of 108 Zen sijo poems (108 representing the number of klesas, or “defilements,” one must overcome to attain enlightenment) features beautiful examples of Cho Oh-Hyun’s award-winning work and the expressive possibilities of sijo. These transfixing poems play with traditional religious and metaphysical themes and include a number of “story” sijo poems, a longer, less traditional style that is one of Cho Oh-Hyun’s major innovations. CHO OH-HYUN

is in retreat at Baekdamsa Temple at Mt.

Negotiating Languages

Urdu, Hindi, and the Definition of Modern South Asia WALTER HAKALA

Before the nineteenth century, South Asian dictionaries, glossaries, and vocabularies reflected a hierarchical vision of nature and human society. By the turn of the twentieth century, the modern dictionary had democratized and politicized language. Compiled “scientifically” through “historical principles,” the modern dictionary became a concrete symbol of a nation’s debut. Following this phenomenon from the late seventeenth century to the present, Negotiating Languages casts lexicographers as key figures in the political realignment of South Asia under British rule and in the years after independence. Their dictionaries document how a single, mutually intelligible language evolved into two competing registers—Urdu and Hindi—and became associated with contrasting religious and nationalist goals.

Homecomings

The Belated Return of Japan’s Lost Soldiers YOSHIKUNI IGARASHI “In a brilliant cultural history, Igarashi brings close and sympathetic attention to the ironies, hypocrisies, and inconsistencies that color reintegration after Japan’s disastrous empire and war.” —Franziska Seraphim, Boston College

Soon after the end of World War II, a majority of the nearly seven million Japanese civilians and serviceman posted overseas returned home. These soldiers helped remake Japan and enjoyed popularized accounts of their service. For those who took longer to return, coming home was more difficult. Their nation resented the reminder of a traumatizing defeat. Homecomings tells the story of these late-returning Japanese soldiers and their struggle to succeed in a newly prosperous society. It exposes the subtler damage done to a country that only belatedly faced the implications of its loss. YOSHIKUNI IGARASHI

Japanese War Criminals

Beginning in late 1945, the United States, Britain, China, Australia, France, the Netherlands, and later the Philippines, the Soviet Union, and the People’s Republic of China prosecuted Japanese military personnel for war crimes. Rather than focus on the fairness of these trials, Japanese War Criminals examines the issues that arose outside the courtroom. What was the legal basis for identifying and detaining subjects, determining who should be prosecuted, collecting evidence, and granting clemency after conviction? Japanese War Criminals shows how a simple effort to punish the guilty evolved into a multidimensional struggle that muddied the assignment of criminal responsibility for war crimes. Over time, indignation in Japan over Allied military actions eclipsed anger over Japanese atrocities, and new Cold War imperatives took hold. This book makes a unique contribution to our understanding of the postwar international order in Asia and the difficulties of transitional justice. SANDRA WILSON

SOCIOLOGY

Desegregating the Past

The Public Life of Memory in the United States and South Africa ROBYN AUTRY

At the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg, South Africa, visitors must decide whether to enter the museum through a door marked “whites” or another marked “non-whites.” Inside, they encounter hanging nooses and other reminders of Apartheid-era atrocities. In the United States, museum exhibitions about racial violence and segregation are mostly confined to black history museums, with national history museums sidelining such difficult material. Desegregating the Past considers why this is the case, tracking the production and display of historical representations of racial pasts at museums in both countries and what it reveals about underlying social anxieties, unsettled emotions, and aspirations surrounding contemporary social fault lines around race.

Robyn Autry consults museum archives, conducts interviews with staff, and recounts the public and private battles fought over the creation and content of history museums. Despite differences between the development of U.S. and South African society, Autry finds a common set of ideological, political, economic, and institutional dilemmas arising out of their selective reconstruction of the past. The narratives they produce to engage with difficult, violent histories expose present anxieties concerning identity, (mis)recognition, and ongoing conflict. ROBYN AUTRY

of Sociology at Wesleyan University.

Dispossession and the Environment

Rhetoric and Inequality in Papua New Guinea PAIGE WEST “This engaging, lively, and lucid book discusses how structural inequalities are produced, lived, and reinforced in today’s globalized world.” —Molly Doane, author of Stealing Shining Rivers: Agrarian Conflict, Market Logic, and Conservation in a Mexican Forest

When journalists, developers, surf tourists, and conservation NGOs cast Papua New Guineans as living in a prior nature and prior culture, they devalue their knowledge and practice, facilitating their dispossession. Paige West’s searing study reveals how a range of actors produces and reinforces inequalities in today’s globalized world. She shows how racist rhetorics of representation underlie all uneven patterns of development and seeks a more robust understanding of the ideological work that capital requires for constant regeneration.

Brevity

A Flash Fiction Handbook DAVID GALEF “Brevity is a thorough introduction to the form, offering a variety of strategies for composition as well as a wide-ranging, international anthology linked to each chapter’s focus. A relentlessly generative, eclectic, instructive, entertaining, and motivational text.” —Michael Martone, University of Alabama

Flash fiction is over in the blink of an eye yet lingers with the reader. In Brevity, David Galef guides creative writing students through this timely literary genre, detailing best techniques, key examples, and provocative prompts. Flash fiction, or the “short-short,” which encompasses vignettes, prose poems, character sketches, fables, lists, twist stories, surrealism, metafiction, and other forms, has taken off over the past decade in both print and digital publications. Galef traces the genre back to such writers as Colette, Donald Barthelme, and Borges, demonstrating the compression and concision of character, plot, and dialogue that make the perfect miniature. Galef shows how developing one’s skills in the short-short form can translate to other forms of writing. His diverse selection of stories and engaging exercises and prompts make Brevity a valuable resource for creative writing students and others who want to try their hands at this increasingly popular form.

Minor Characters Have Their Day

Genre and the Contemporary Literary Marketplace JEREMY ROSEN

How do genres develop? In what ways do they reflect changing political and cultural trends? What do they tell us about the motivations and desires of publishers and readers? Combining close readings and formal analysis with a sociology of literary institutions and markets, Minor Characters Have Their Day offers a compelling new approach to genre study and contemporary fiction based on its analysis of the booming genre of novels that transform minor characters from canonical literary texts into the protagonists of new works. Focusing on a crucial yet frequently unacknowledged genre, Jeremy Rosen makes broader claims about the state of contemporary fiction, genre, and the consolidation of the publishing industry over recent decades. In the concluding chapter, he intervenes in the theory of literary character. JEREMY ROSEN

Lasting Impressions

Bachelor Japanists

The Impressionist Impulse in Contemporary Culture

Japanese Aesthetics and Western Masculinities

JESSE MATZ

CHRISTOPHER REED

Capturing the sensations left behind as modernity progressed, impressionist artists revolutionized the arts and the wider culture. Impressionism transformed painting and literature, and later film and advertising, and introduced new ways to look at and think about objects. Its legacy can be felt in a range of examples in popular and high culture, from cubism and the works of Zadie Smith and W. G. Sebald to advertisements for Pepsi and the observations of Oliver Sacks and Malcolm Gladwell. Yet despite impressionism’s ongoing domination, the movement has also been associated with superficiality and commodified kitsch.

Challenging clichés of Japanism as a feminine taste, Bachelor Japanists argues that Japanese aesthetics were central to contests over the meanings of masculinity in the West. Christopher Reed draws attention to the queerness of Japanist communities of writers, collectors, curators, and artists in the tumultuous century between the 1860s and the 1960s. He combines extensive archival research; analysis of art, architecture, and literature; the insights of queer theory; and an appreciation of irony to explore the East-West encounter through three revealing artistic milieus: the Goncourt brothers and other japonistes of latenineteenth-century Paris; collectors and curators in turn-of-the-century Boston; and the mid-twentieth-century circles of artists associated with Seattle’s Mark Tobey. The result is a groundbreaking integration of well-known and forgotten episodes and personalities that illuminates how Japanese aesthetics were used to challenge Western gender conventions. These disruptive effects are sustained in Reed’s analysis, which undermines conventional scholarly investments in the heroism of avant-garde accomplishment and ideals of cultural authenticity.

Jesse Matz considers these two versions of impression—the timeless and the negative— to explain the genre’s significance today. He examines impressionism’s footprint in the way we define “good” and “bad” art and in our imagining of the status and aesthetics of art. As he moves through contemporary literature, painting, and popular culture, Matz explains how the perceptual role, cultural effects, and social implications of impressionism continue to generate meaning and foster new forms of creativity, understanding, and public engagement.

An Anthology from Anne Bradstreet to Octavia Butler WAI CHEE DIMOCK, EDITOR

With Jordan Brower, Edgar Garcia, Kyle Hutzler, and Nicholas Rinehart

American Literature in the World shows U.S. authors as participants in large-scale processes, energized by input from the world. American literature emerges as a charged prism, informed by broad disputes and complex crosscurrents, with local practices intensified by nonlocal concerns, demonstrating that the United States and the world are intertwined and coevolving.

American Literature in the World is structured around war; food; work, play, and travel; religions; and human and nonhuman interface. Selections include poetry from Anne Bradstreet and Jorie Graham; the fiction of Herman Melville, Mark Twain, and William Faulkner; Benjamin Franklin’s parables, Thomas Jefferson’s letters, Theodore Roosevelt’s Rough Riders; and excerpts from Octavia Butler’s Bloodchild and The Autobiography of Malcom X. The crime novels of Raymond Chandler, the comics of Art Spiegelman, the science fiction of Philip K. Dick, and recipes from Alice B. Toklas are all featured. More recent authors include Junot Diaz, Leslie Marmon Silko, Jonathan Safran Foer, Edwidge Danticat, Gary Shteyngart, and Jhumpa Lahiri.

David Foster Wallace’s Balancing Books

Fictions of Value

JEFFREY SEVERS

Critics have pointed to David Foster Wallace’s exploration of morality and a return to sincerity as the central concerns of his work. As Jeffrey Severs argues in David Foster Wallace’s Balancing Books, the author was also deeply engaged with social, political, and economic issues. A rebellious economic thinker, Wallace not only satirized the deforming effects of money but also questioned the logic of the monetary system. In his readings of all of Wallace’s fiction, from The Broom of the System and Infinite Jest to the story collections and The Pale King, Severs reveals Wallace to be a political writer whose works provide an often surreal history of financial crises and neoliberal policies.

LITERARY STUDIES

American Literature in the World

As Severs demonstrates, balance and value are crucial to the work of Wallace, who constantly asks us to consider what we value and why. Severs also details how Wallace’s writing explores the quest for balance in a world of excess and entropy. Explaining why Wallace’s work has galvanized a new phase in contemporary global literature, Severs draws connections to key forerunners Don DeLillo, Thomas Pynchon, and William Gaddis, as well as successors— including Dave Eggers, Teddy Wayne, Jonathan Lethem, and Zadie Smith— interpreting Wallace’s legacy in terms of finance, the gift, and office life.

Chimeras of Form

Modernist Internationalism Beyond Europe, 1914–2016 AARTHI VADDE

Incomparable Empires

Modernism and the Translation of Spanish and American Literature GAYLE ROGERS

The Spanish-American War of 1898 seems to mark a turning point. The victorious American empire ascended culturally, while the Spanish empire became a minor state in the world republic of letters. What if key modernist figures in America and Spain radically rewrote these histories—at the foundational moment of modern literary studies? Gayle Rogers revisits the role of empire in shaping a nation’s literature and culture. He reads the provocative, often counterintuitive arguments of John Dos Passos. He follows Ezra Pound’s use of Spanish poetry to structure the Cantos and the poet Juan Ramón Jiménez’s interpretations of modernismo across several languages. He tracks the theorization of a Harlem– Havana–Madrid nexus for black writing, and Ernest Hemingway’s development of cubist Spanglish in For Whom the Bell Tolls. GAYLE ROGERS

is associate professor of English at the

University of Pittsburgh.

In Chimeras of Form, Aarthi Vadde explains how a wide-ranging group of writers used modernist literary forms to shape ideas of international belonging in the wake of imperialism. Rabindranath Tagore, James Joyce, Claude McKay, George Lamming, Michael Ondaatje, and Zadie Smith questioned traditional expectations of aesthetic form and, in doing so, cast doubt on parallel notions of the cohesion and wholeness of political communities.

Vadde shows how these writers’ formal experiments took part in debates about transnational interdependence and social obligation. She reads Joyce’s use of asymmetrical narratives as a way to ask questions about international camaraderie and demonstrates how the “plotless” works of Claude McKay upturn ideas of citizenship and diasporic alienation. Her analysis of the contemporary writers Zadie Smith and Shailja Patel shows how present-day questions relating to migration, displacement, and economic inequality link modernism and postcolonial literature. Vadde illustrates how writers have reimagined the nation and internationalism in a period defined by globalization, revealing internationalism as an aspiration, possibly a chimeric one, and an actual political discourse.

At the Mercy of Their Clothes

Modernism, the Middlebrow, and British Garment Culture CELIA MARSHIK

In modern fiction, it is the clothes that make the character. Garments convey wealth, status, aspiration, and morality (or a lack thereof ). They suggest where characters have been and where they might be headed, as well as whether they are aware of their fate. At the Mercy of Their Clothes explores the agency of fashion in modern literature, its reflection of new relations between people and things, and its embodiment of a rapidly changing society.

Celia Marshik’s study combines close readings of modernist and middlebrow works, a history of Britain in the early twentieth century, and the insights of thing theory. In their use of clothes, we see authors negotiate shifting gender roles, weigh the value of individuality during national conflict, work through mortality, and depict changing class structures. Marshik’s dynamic comparisons put Ulysses in conversation with Rebecca, Punch cartoons, articles in Vogue, and letters from consumers, illuminating a widespread anxiety that people were no more than what they wore. Her work highlights the persistent animation of clothing— and objectification of individuals—in earlytwentieth- century literature and society. CELIA MARSHIK

University. She is the author of British Modernism and Censorship (2006) and editor of The Cambridge Companion to Modernist Culture (2014).

A New Vocabulary for Global Modernism ERIC HAYOT AND

REBECCA L. WALKOWITZ, EDITORS

A New Vocabulary for Global Modernism argues for new ways of understanding the nature and development of twentiethcentury literature and culture. Leading critics and literary scholars explore what happens to the foundational concepts of modernism and the methods we bring to modernist studies when we approach the field as a global phenomenon. Their work transforms the intellectual paradigms we have long associated with modernism, such as tradition, antiquity, style, and translation. New paradigms, such as context, slum, copy, pantomime, and puppets emerge as the archive extends beyond its European center. The result is a richer set of concepts for the analysis of literary and cultural works. ERIC HAYOT

GIAN MARIA ANNOVI is assistant ASHLEY T. SHELDEN

The quest to understand the evolution of the literary mind has become a fertile field of inquiry and speculation for scholars across literary studies and cognitive science. In Paleopoetics, Christopher Collins’s acclaimed earlier title, he described how language emerged both as a communicative tool and as a means of fashioning other communicative tools—stories, songs, and rituals. In Neopoetics, Collins turns his attention to the cognitive evolution of the writing-ready brain. Further integrating neuroscience into cognitive poetics, he adds empirical depth to our study of literary texts and verbal imagination and offers a new way to look at reading, writing, and creative expression. He examines texts from Homer and Hesiod to Plato and Aristotle and from the lyric innovations of Augustan Rome to the inner dialogues of St. Augustine. CHRISTOPHER COLLINS

Eliot, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, Mina Loy, and Wallace Stevens to the world but, as Eric Bulson shows in Little Magazine, World Form, their reach and importance extended beyond Europe and the United States. By investigating the global and transnational itineraries of the little-magazine form, Bulson uncovers a worldwide network that influenced the development of literature and criticism in Africa, the West Indies, the Pacific Rim, and South America. Bulson also addresses equally formative moments of disconnection and immobility. British and American writers who fled to Europe to escape Anglo-American provincialism, refugees from fascism, wandering surrealists, and displaced communists all contributed to the proliferation of print. Yet the little magazine was equally crucial to literary production and consumption in the postcolonial world, where it helped connect newly independent African nations. Bulson concludes with reflections on the digitization of these defunct little magazines and what it means for our ongoing desire to understand modernism’s global dimensions in the past and its digital afterlife.

On Company Time

American Modernism in the Big Magazines DONAL HARRIS

On Company Time tells the story of American modernism from inside the offices and on the pages of the most successful and stylish magazines of the twentieth century. Willa Cather, W. E. B. Du Bois, Jessie Fauset, James Agee, T. S. Eliot, and Ernest Hemingway all worked in the editorial offices of groundbreaking popular magazines while helping to invent the house styles that defined McClure’s, The Crisis, Time, Life, Esquire, and more. On Company Time challenges the narrative of decline that often accompanies modernism’s incorporation into midcentury middlebrow culture. Its integrated history of literary and journalistic form shows American modernism evolving within mass print culture. And for the writers, the “double life” of working for these magazines shaped modernism’s literary form and created new models of authorship. DONAL HARRIS

of English at the University of Memphis.

Exception Taken

How France Has Defied Hollywood’s New World Order

JONATHAN BUCHSBAUM

Jonathan Buchsbaum examines opposition to the homogenizing force of Hollywood in global filmmaking. While European cinema was entering a steady decline in the 1980s, France sought to strengthen support for its film industry under the new Mitterrand government. Over the following decades, the country lobbied partners in the European Economic Community to design strategies to protect the audiovisual industries and to resist cultural free-trade pressures in international trade agreements. These struggles to preserve the autonomy of national artistic prerogatives emboldened many countries to question the benefits of accelerated globalization.

Led by the energetic minister of culture Jack Lang, France initiated a series of measures to support all sectors of the film industry. Lang introduced laws mandating that state and private television invest in the film industry, replacing the revenue lost from a shrinking theatrical audience. As France pursued efforts to protect cultural diversity beyond its borders, it also articulated “a certain idea of cinema” that did not simply defend a narrow vision of national cinema. France promoted both commercial and art cinema, disproving the death of the form. JONATHAN BUCHSBAUM

Reform Cinema in Iran

Film and Political Change in the Islamic Republic BLAKE ATWOOD

In Reform Cinema in Iran, Blake Atwood examines the distinct cultural and political style of Iranian film between 1989 and 2007. He provides new readings of internationally recognized works such as Abbas Kiarostami’s Taste of Cherry (1997) and Mohsen Makhmalbaf ’s Time for Love (1990), as well as films by Rakhshan Bani, Masud Kiami, and other key Iranian directors. He also considers how filmmakers and the film industry were shaped by larger political and religious trends during Mohammad Khatami’s presidency (1997-2005). Atwood analyzes political speeches, religious sermons, and newspaper editorials and pays close attention to technological developments. He concludes with the legacy of reform cinema, including films produced under Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. BLAKE ATWOOD

William Guynn focuses on the sensation of encountering past events through film. Yaël Hersonski’s A Film Unfinished (2010) deconstructs scenes from Das Ghetto through the testimony of ghetto survivors. Larissa Shepitko’s The Ascent (1977) evokes the existential drama Soviet partisans faced during the Nazi occupation. Patricio Guzmán’s Nostalgia for the Light (2011) examines the vestiges of human experience, including the scattered remains of Pinochet’s victims, in the aridity of the Atacama Desert. Rithy Panh’s S-21 (2003) reawakens events of the Cambodian genocide through confrontation with some of its executioners, and Joshua Oppenheimer’s The Act of Killing (2012) films the perpetrators of the Indonesian genocide as they restage scenes of killings and torture. Guynn argues that film restores the affective dimension of historical experience, rooted in the deepest reaches of our minds. WILLIAM GUYNN

Big Night (1996), Ratatouille (2007), and Julie and Julia (2009) are more than films about food—they serve a political purpose. They use food to explore such themes as ideological pluralism, ethnic and racial acceptance, gender equality, and class flexibility—but not as progressively as you might think. Feasting Our Eyes takes a second look at these and other modern American food films to emphasize their conventional approaches to nation, gender, race, sexuality, and social status. American food films shape our sense of who belongs, who has a voice, and who has opportunities in American society. They facilitate the virtual consumption of traditional notions of identity and citizenship, reinforcing ideas of power. LAURA LINDENFELD

Prison Movies

Silent Cinema

Cinema Behind Bars

Before the Pictures Got Small

KEVIN KEHRWALD

LAWRENCE NAPPER

Prison Movies follows the public fascination with incarceration from the silent era to today. The prison film precedes the gangster film and is in many ways its opposite, focusing on already-fallen characters seeking redemption. At their core, prison films are about self-preservation under oppressive circumstances. The enclosed world of the prison is a highly effective microcosm, one that forces characters and audiences to confront vexing issues of race, class, gender, and sexuality. The portrayal of men and women behind bars has thrived because it deals with such fundamental human themes as freedom, individuality, power, justice, and mercy. Films examined in this volume include The Big House (1930), I Want to Live! (1958), The Defiant Ones (1958), Cool Hand Luke (1967), Midnight Express (1978), Escape from Alcatraz (1979), The Shawshank Redemption (1994), and Starred Up (2013).

Since the spectacular success of The Artist (2011), silent cinema is hot again, particularly the lush and passionate screen dramas of the 1920s. Silent Cinema outlines the development of the form between the end of the First World War and the 1920s. It addresses the relationship between film aesthetics and the industrial and political contexts of film production through a series of case studies of “national” cinemas. It also discusses filmgoing as a popular leisure activity, considering the star system, cinema buildings, musical accompaniments, film fashions, and fan cultures. The book accounts for the international dominance of Hollywood and responses produced by Britain, Germany, and the USSR. Films discussed include The Oyster Princess (1919), It (1927), Shooting Stars (1927), and The Girl with the Hatbox (1927).

The Psycho Records traces the impact of the primal shower scene on subsequent slasher and splatter films. American soldiers returning from World War II were called “psychos” if they exhibited mental illness. Robert Bloch and Alfred Hitchcock turned the term into a catchall phrase for a range of psychotic and psychopathic dispositions. They transferred a war disorder to the American heartland. This book argues, though, that the effect is finite. It opens not with another reading of Hitchcock’s 1960 film but with an evaluation of vampirism and the rise of demonic and infernal tendencies in horror movies. LAURENCE A. RICKELS

Despite its association with the rape-revenge category, Abel Ferrara’s Ms. 45 (1981) is considered one of the most significant feminist cult films of the 1980s. Straddling mainstream, arthouse, and exploitation film genres, Ms. 45 has at its heart two figures: Ferrara and the movie’s star, Zoe Lund. This book explores the entwining histories and contexts that led to Ms. 45’s creation and helped establish its enduring legacy, particularly in terms of feminist cult-film fandom and the film’s status as an important, influential, and powerful rape-revenge film.

While Dario Argento’s Deep Red (1975) was immensely popular upon its release in Italy and inspired copycat thrillers, it was not received enthusiastically by Englishspeaking audiences. With its loosely woven narrative and hyperstylized violent set pieces, Deep Red was dismissed as clichéd and exploitative Euro-schlock in the United States and the United Kingdom. Reconstructing the film’s censorship, reedited releases, and subsequent celebration by cult-film audiences, this book considers how these competing discourses helped turn the work into an exemplar of cult cinema.

In Health Care as a Right of Citizenship, Gunnar Almgren argues that the primary significance of the Obama administration’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) is not its expansion of health-care entitlements but how it affirms, through an act of Congress, the idea that comprehensive health care must be available to all as a right of citizenship. Drawing on the writings of the sociologist T.H. Marshall and the philosopher John Rawls, Almgren examines the theoretical foundations for health care as a social right of citizenship. He then translates these theoretical principles into core health-care policy aims. Almgren suggests how such a restructured health-care system might operate, with specific proposals for its financing and delivery systems. Health Care as a Right of Citizenship promotes a health care system that is financially sustainable and capable of making healthcare accessible, adequate, and affordable to all, irrespective of their societal position and individual health needs.

SOCIAL WORK

Health Care as a Right of Citizenship

The Healthy Marriage Initiative is a federal policy that has funded marriage-education programs in nearly every state. These programs, which encourage marriage by teaching relationship skills, are predicated on the hope that married couples can provide a more stable home for their children. Healthy marriage policy assumes that marriage can be a socioeconomic survival mechanism for low-income families and an engine of upward mobility.

Through interviews with couples and her own observations and participation in marriage-education courses, Jennifer M. Randles takes the reader inside healthymarriage classrooms to reveal how their curricula are reflections of broader issues of culture, gender, governance, and social inequality. She questions whether healthymarriage policy should target individual behavior or the social and economic context of that behavior. The most valuable approach, she concludes, will reflect the fundamental premise that love and commitment thrive most within the context of social and economic opportunity. is an assistant professor

Spirituality and Hospice Social Work

ANN M. CALLAHAN

Many hospice social workers must address spiritual issues with their clients but do not feel competent to do so effectively. This targeted volume draws upon multidisciplinary theory and research to advance a relational model of spiritually sensitive hospice care. The book will help clinicians elevate their spiritual competence and foster a relationship with their clients that will enrich the experience for all involved.

Spirituality and Hospice Social Work helps practitioners understand various forms of spiritual assessment for use with their clients. The book teaches practitioners to recognize a client’s spiritual needs and resources, as well as signs of spiritual suffering. It also discusses religious and spiritual practices that clients may use to enhance their spiritual coping. Spirituality and Hospice Social Work stresses the need for interdisciplinary collaboration with other members of the hospice team, along with the value of maintaining professional ethical standards when addressing spiritual issues. Throughout, the importance of spiritual sensitivity and its effect upon client well-being is emphasized. ANN M. CALLAHAN

To Engage the University in a Useless Task Which Will Allow It to Expose a Working Model of Its System LES LEVINE

In the summer of 1970, the artist Les Levine arrived at the University of Toronto to install site-specific work on the quadrangle in front of the University’s Hart House. The piece—construction materials hung from high-tension rope between campus buildings—was stymied by bureaucratic impediments. What ensued became the conceit for the project. By collating the correspondence, telephone transcripts, and visual documentation of the installation process, Levine used the work to demonstrate how the university functioned. Red Tape replicates this project, which had existed only as a dossier in the artist’s archive. LES LEVINE

Home to the famed Cotton Club, Alexander Hamilton’s grange, the Manhattan Project, and a Studebaker factory, West Harlem is an ever-transforming pocket of New York City. With the arrival of Columbia University’s Manhattanville expansion—a campus master plan designed by architect Renzo Piano—West Harlem is now a site of experimentation in the future of the twentyfirst-century university. Bringing together conversations with the architects and planners designing the Manhattanville campus, the educators who will inhabit its buildings, and essays from urban and architectural historians, this book documents the making of Manhattanville and critically engages with the university’s history of expansion.

In Banking’s Final Exam, one of the world’s leading experts on banking regulation concludes that these tests suffered from several fundamental weaknesses that, unless corrected, can produce a false reassurance about the safety and soundness of the banking system. The book outlines important steps for the future design of these tests, arguing for their necessity if stress testing is to become the central pillar of bank supervision worldwide. The banking industry is likely to resist these steps, but this book explains why their arguments do not hold water. MORRIS GOLDSTEIN,

The world is poised to reduce the income gap between the rich and the poor on a global scale while reshaping patterns of consumption. Rapid economic growth in emerging markets is projected to enable consumers to spend proportionately less on food and more on transportation, goods, and services, which will in turn strain global infrastructure and accelerate climate change. The largest gains will be made in poorer parts of the world, chiefly sub-Saharan Africa and India, followed by China and the advanced economies. This study follows these developments and serves as a warning to policy makers to prepare for its profound effect on global economies and the planet. PAOLO MAURO

Now, after years of a sluggish economic recovery, the time has come for a new monetary-stimulus strategy to encourage risktaking by investors and spur rapid economic growth. In this book, Ángel Ubide surveys the actions taken by central banks following the 2008 global financial crisis and draws lessons from the unpredictable interaction of markets, countries, and financial institutions. He finds that the fear of triggering another crisis has caused central banks to become dangerously risk-averse and overly complacent about dampened economic growth. Ubide urges monetary policy makers to leave their “comfort zones” and embrace risk as a necessary requirement for growth. ÁNGEL UBIDE,

The Rise of EmergingMarket Tycoons and their Mega Firms

The Great Tradeoff Confronting Moral Conflicts in the Era of Globalization

STEVEN R. WEISMAN

CAROLINE FREUND Assisted by Sarah Oliver

Caroline Freund analyzes close to 700 emergingmarket billionaires whose net worth adds up to more than $2 trillion. She finds their work has propelled poor countries out of their small-scale production and agricultural past and into a world of multinational industry and service-based megafirms. This story of emerging-market billionaires and the global businesses they create dramatically illuminates the process of industrialization in the modern world economy. CAROLINE FREUND

Did materialist excess, doctrinaire embrace of free trade and capital flows, and indifference to economic injustice contribute to the disaster of the last decade? Was it ethical to bail out banks and governments while innocent people suffered? A blend of economics, moral philosophy, history, and politics, The Great Tradeoff argues that the concepts of liberty, justice, virtue, and loyalty help explain the passionate disagreements spawned by a globally integrated economy.

The global financial crisis led to an agreement among regulators to raise capital requirements for banks to protect against insolvency in the event of another emergency. In this book, William R. Cline employs sophisticated economic models to analyze whether these reforms, embodied in the Third Basel Accord, have gone far enough. He calculates how much higher bank capital reduces the risk of banking crises and benefits the economy. On the cost side, he estimates how much higher capital requirements raise the lending rate for firms, reducing investment in plant and equipment and thus reducing economic output. Cline arrives at estimates for the optimal level of equity capital relative to total bank assets and challenges the idea that banking sectors are too large and curb growth.

Agenda Publishing is an independent publisher of books and journals in economics, political economy, and philosophy. Agenda’s publishing aims to facilitate access to economic ideas for a readership that has traditionally found them forbidding and inaccessible, whether in the wider social sciences or in the public square, yet who nevertheless wish to gain a greater understanding of how the economy works. As well as opening up the work of mainstream economics, Agenda’s program also represents the work of other traditions and methodologies, as well as more ethically- and historicallyinformed studies.

Peter Tschmuck writes a concise, rigorous presentation of the economic fundamentals of the music industry and the music economy. His book examines music publishing, sound recording, the live-music market, and secondary markets such as advertising and merchandising and their joint operation. He pays special attention to the effect of digitization and the economic relevance of new digital formats, including download services, streaming platforms, mobile music providers, cloud music services, and music recognition and recommendation systems. He shows how established publishers (Universal, Sony/ATV, and Warner/ Chappell), new promoters (LiveNation), and a new generation of music providers (Apple, Google, and Amazon) have created a heady mix of competing and collaborative economic models. Add the problems of piracy and fickle consumer behavior, and the music business becomes one of the world’s most dynamic buisness sectors. PETER TSCHMUCK

Another Idea of the Market LUIGINO BRUNI AND STEFANO ZAMAGNI

Drawing on the Italian tradition of civic humanism, the political economists Luigino Bruni and Stefano Zamagni advocate for a more well-mannered economic market—a civil economy—that places well-being, virtue, and the common good alongside economic goals such as market share, increased productivity, and competitiveness. This book explores the origins and development of the civil economic approach, the thought of its pioneers, and its different applications, from the determination of gross domestic product to the management of common goods, from welfare to the organization of production and consumption. The civil economy offers a humane and socially accountable yet productive and competitive market system. LUIGINO BRUNI

This collection builds on the growing interest in the global development of wealth and inequality stimulated by Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the TwentyFirst Century. An international team of economic historians and economists provide a comprehensive overview of global developments in the theory, practice, and policy of inequality and its place in the modern world order. The contributors take stock of key concepts—capital, wealth and income, inequality, economic development, financialization—and evaluate the evidence for historical trends in existing national statistical data sources. To the developed economies upon which Piketty drew are added contributions covering Latin America, Africa, India, and Japan.

One of the biggest dilemmas of our time is deciding how much safety and security we need and what price to pay for it. By applying and advancing the methods of social research, this book fills a gap in the study of security and security risks by analyzing unique data (media, surveys, and macrodata) on transnational security issues in three critical areas of infrastructure: air transport, public transport, and energyprovision networks.

Greek Tragedy, European Odyssey: The Politics and Economics of the Eurozone Crisis ROBERT GODBY AND STEPHANIE B. ANDERSON

Is the euro really the crowning achievement of European integration efforts? Quite the contrary: the euro has become a great threat to the integrity of the European Union. Strains caused by the crisis have led to greater dissension among member states and a public recoil against greater integration. This book explains how the ongoing Eurocrisis has already fractured member states and their inhabitants. It does so without assuming readers are already experts on the topics addressed, making the book an ideal introduction to the problem. ROBERT GODBY

Transitional Justice and Education Learning Peace

CLARA RAMÍREZ-BARAT AND ROGER DUTHIE, EDITORS

After periods of conflict and authoritarianism, educational institutions often need to be reformed or rebuilt. But in settings where education has been used to support repressive policies and human rights violations or where conflict and abuses have resulted in lost educational opportunities, legacies of injustice may pose significant challenges to effective reform. Peace-building and development perspectives, which normally drive the reconstruction agenda, pay little attention to the violent past. Transitional Justice and Education: Learning Peace presents the findings of a research project conducted by the International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) on the relationship between transitional justice and education in peace-building contexts. The book examines how transitional justice can shape the reform of education systems by ensuring programs are sensitive to the legacies of the past, how it can facilitate the reintegration of children and youth into society, and how education can engage younger generations in the work of transitional justice. CLARA RAMÍREZ-BARAT

is the director of the Educational Policies

Program at the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation. For the past six years, her work has focused on the intersection between transitional justice and the public sphere (media, culture, and education), with a focus on prevention. ROGER DUTHIE

The Great Climate Robbery explains how the industrial food system is a major driver of climate change and how food sovereignty is critical to any lasting and just solution. With governments abdicating their responsibility to deal with this problem, people must take action into their own hands. Changing the food system is the most effective place to start, and this book shows how. The Great Climate Robbery is a joint publication between GRAIN, Daraja Press, Tulika Books, and Spinifex Press.

Indian Women and Their Journeys from the Salon to the Studio VIDYA SHAH

Sheba Chhachhi’s art traverses documentary photography, installation, video, and new media. She has created large photo-based installations incorporating light, sound, and the moving image and has pursued long-term photography projects. Chhachhi’s experiments cross durational mediums, from precinematic animated lightboxes to virtual-reality interactivity. Since 1999, public art interventions have been a significant aspect of her work. Arc Silt Dive maps the methods and modes of address and inquiry in Chhachhi’s work. It extends the aspects of installation as a form that can transfer or transpose the properties and functions of image and object, spatialize and visualize text, enact a textualization of objects and materials, or become a performative loop that threads together performance, literature, architecture, painting, sculpture, film, photography, and digital composition.

Jalsa follows female performers in India from the salon to the studio, providing insight into the early interface between technology and entertainment and the irreversible impact it has had on how we listen to and enjoy music. Jalsa recognizes an important slice of Indian music history, celebrated the world over in many forms and avatars. VIDYA SHAH

Developmental Modernity in Kerala

Narayana Guru, SNDP Yogam and Social Reform P. CHANDRAMOHAN

This study of the Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana Yogam (SNDP Yogam), one of the earliest social-reform movements in Kerala, investigates the relationship between social reform, religion, and caste. The Yogam drew inspiration from the ideas of Narayana Guru, which suited the aspirations of the upwardly mobile Ezhava middle class. In both religious and social matters, the Guru was a traditionalist who strove to create a modern outlook among the masses. He thought of the temple as a social space in which everyone could meet and exchange ideas. While pursuing his spiritual mission, he advocated education, industrialization, and the abolition of caste as prerequisites for social regeneration.

This work focuses on education, government employment, and industrialization; the abolition of cyclical rituals and caste; antialcoholism; and the demand for a new law of inheritance. Disjunction between principles and practice led to the decline of the SNDP movement. Ironically, since it was largely centered on the interests of the privileged Ezhava community, the movement achieved Ezhava solidarity only around caste. This study is therefore a significant example of a social-reform movement turning into a caste-solidarity movement. P. CHANDRAMOHAN

Has there been a shift away from classical labor politics, derived from the European experience, to a vernacular discourse in surrogate voluntary organizations, including social and cultural associations, NGOs, activities nucleating around identities, and organizations that are not explicitly trade unions? In a shift from the language of class to the language of community, have organizations that serve a range of objectives, from environmental concerns to women’s equality, stripped labor unions of their agency? Is this vernacular new? These essays add to the literature on labor politics, moving away from​categories derived from European and international labor movements of the late nineteenth century and toward recent formulations of vernacularity.

This book is a companion volume to A People’s History of India 6 which recounted the political and economic history of the post-Mauryan period from c. 200 BC to AD 300. The volume confronts the important aspects of the society and culture of the same period. It traces the diffusion of the caste system and describes its detailed codification. Major changes in religion, notably the emergence of Mahayana Buddhism and Bhakti in Brahmanism, are surveyed in depth. The book also includes fresh and enlightening examinations of innovations in sculpture, languages, and literature. BHAIRABI PRASAD SAHU

History is under attack in India—not only from those who popularize a mythical version of the past with ill-concealed political objectives but also from those who, through theoretical relativism that emphasizes cultural specificity and difference, reorientalize the Orientals. Both approaches leave intact the hegemony of thought that underlies today’s social and economic inequalities.

This collection of essays focuses on the role of religion and mythology in making Brahmanical hegemony through the institutions of caste, gender, and religious ideology. The aim is not to dismiss myths as false, distorted, or bad history but to examine the kind of reality they represent, to delve into the dynamics of their formation and their impact, and to account for elements of continuity and change. The collection features studies on caste-related social differentiation, drawing on sources from the history, society, and polity of early India, as well as on the work of R. S. Sharma, the eminent historian of the period. It also includes studies on the gendered development of Brahmanical hegemony and studies on the historical valences of the various mythological incarnations in Vaishnava theology: Rama, Narasimha, and Hayagriva.

Cannibal Holocaust

Macbeth

CALUM WADDELL

REBEKAH OWENS

Cannibal Holocaust (1980) is one of the most controversial horror films ever made. The United Kingdom’s Department of Public Prosecutions deemed it obscene. As the years have passed, the film has been recast as the forefather of the “found-footage” genre. What is missing is any contextualization of its style, affirmation and discussion of its locations, and discourse about its representation of Third World inhabitants. Cannibal Holocaust is a key post-Vietnam film, with an explicit warning about Western involvement in civil conflict. This book adopts a more formalist position toward its analysis.

Why write about Roman Polanski’s Macbeth (1971) as a horror film? Polanski had just made Repulsion (1965) and Rosemary’s Baby (1968), and Macbeth provides clues to his horror lexicon. This book demonstrates how Polanski’s Macbeth can be read as part of the British folk tradition, linking the film to The Wicker Man (1973), Blood on Satan’s Claw (1971), and Witchfinder General (1968). It then connects the work to later American horror classics, such as Halloween (1978). It also explores the popular associations made between the film and Polanski’s own life, arguing they support the view of the film as horror.

Ari Folman’s animated documentary Waltz with Bashir (2008) has been heralded as a brilliant exploration of trauma and its impact on memory. Its documentary form rather than its animation has influenced critics most. As Studying Waltz with Bashir shows, this tension is what makes the film so complex, allowing for multiple themes and discourses to coexist. The book considers the cinematic representation of war, the history of Israeli Holocaust cinema, and recent trends in experimental animation, such as Waking Life (2001), The Congress (2013), and A Scanner Darkly (2006).

Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) shifted the science-fiction film away from spaceships, lasers, and bug-eyed monsters toward a form John Wyndham called “logical fantasy.” Like 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), CE3K concerns mankind’s evolution toward the stars or a state of transcendence. Yet Spielberg’s vision hinges on the development of emotional intelligence. We must recover our capacity to experience wonder. This book explores the film’s intensity of emotion along with its production history and place in the Spielberg oeuvre. JON TOWLSON

Ridley Scott’s 1982 film Blade Runner is now recognized as an undisputed masterwork of science-fiction cinema and one of the most influential films released in the last forty years. How did a film that was removed from circulation within a month of its premiere come to mean so much to modern audiences? Sean Redmond excavates the film’s breakthrough use of special effects as a narrative tool, revolutionary representation of the future city, treatment of racial and sexual politics, and unique status as a text whose meaning was fundamentally altered in subsequent director’s cuts.

Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010) samples from a number of genres and collapses the distinctions among them. The work is both science fiction and a kind of heist film, with shades of film noir. It is a psychological thriller and shows that the personal experience of the passing of time is variable. The film explores the nature of the mind and how dreams are related to the subconscious. David Carter covers all of these facets and considers this complex yet highly successful film within the context of Nolan’s other work.

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.

Teaching Cinema in the Classroom and Beyond ALAIN BERGALA Translated by Madeline Whittle With a dialogue between Alain Bergala and Alejandro Bachmann

This is the first English translation of Alain Bergala’s seminal text on the potentials, possibilities, and problems of bringing film to schools and other educational contexts. Bergala promotes an understanding of film as an autonomous art form—rather than viewing it as a supplement to other established school subjects. Film, for Bergala, is not something that has to smoothly blend into the school but can serve as a productive rupture, for both institution and pupil. Published in collaboration with the British Film Institute, this edition will feature a new introduction on the occasion of its first appearance in English and a conversation with Bergala about the current state of international film education.

Films are modes of experience that provide a sense for the unexpected dynamics of urban life and historical reality. This understanding of cinema inspired the writings on film that form a central part of the wide-ranging work of the Austrian historian Siegfried Mattl. From the political imaginary of well-known “historical films” by Stanley Kubrick, Ridley Scott, John Woo, and Todd Haynes; to interwar comedies and postwar educational films highlighting the changing socioeconomic textures of Vienna; and on to amateur films that offer surprising views of how Austrians adapted themselves to Nazism and consumer culture, Mattl´s investigations are written with humor and a critical view of power relations. He invites us to look back at, and look out for, the ephemera of history.

Geographies of Love

American Mobilities

CHRISTIAN LENZ

JULIA LEYDA

Geographies of Love is the first study to explore the cultural life-worlds of British, Australian, and Indian chick- and ladlit characters. Offering case studies including Bridget Jones and Will Freeman (of About a Boy), the book explores how love and romance are looked for, begun, and conducted in specific spaces and places, the home and the office as well as shops, clubs, and bars. This cross-disciplinary study provides scholars, students, and keen readers with different points of access and easily relatable situations so as to apprehend the complex phenomenon of cultural geographies within the field of literary studies.

American Mobilities investigates representations of mobility—social, economic, geographic—in American film and literature during the Depression, WWII, and the early Cold War. With an emphasis on the dual meaning of “domestic,” referring to both the family home and the nation, this study traces the important trope of mobility that runs through the “American” century. Juxtaposing canonical fiction with popular, low-budget independent films with classical Hollywood, Leyda brings the analytic tools of American cultural and literary studies to bear on an eclectic array of primary texts as she builds a case for the significance of mobility in the study of the United States.

Until recently still a blank spot on the world map of art, China today plays a major role in the global art market and has captured attention because of the speculations and the covetousness of its protagonists. But what is really happening on the spot, beyond the ethnocentric distortions of the Western viewpoint? What social representations and uses of art can be identified?

Challenging Zygmunt Bauman’s characterization of “liquid modernity,” where everything has become unstable, precarious, and uncertain, Carlo Bordoni causes us to reconsider our present condition. Bordoni, Bauman’s coauthor on State of Crisis, proposes to look at contemporary society as an “interregnum,” a temporary break with the past. In an era characterized by anomie, the questioning of democratic achievements, and the primacy of an unbridled economy, he offers a new perspective on our social condition. Understanding the interregnum, being aware of its instability and the social degradation that it entails, can help us to make the right choices.

We are witnessing new ways of assembling that have revitalized the act of democracy.” These events might not have led to radical political change, but their importance cannot be denied. This book acknowledges them as a starting point for a new art of being many: the “many” invoke new concepts of collectivity by renegotiating their modes of participation and (self-) presentation and by rewriting rhetorical, choreographical, and material scripts of assembling.

This book undertakes a thoughtful, two-part study of the “expansion of the senses” provoked by the rise of new moving media images. The book appreciates, through a detailed interrogation of cinema’s constitutive “cinaesthetic” experience, the blurring of the sensuous self and the transgression of borders already inscribed in media. It then explores the interplay among new media’s moving images and the transformation of our sensuous and mental capacities through techniques of modulation, simulation, prosthetics, networking, and digital cartography, drawing on theories and frameworks from philosophy, sociology, and neurobiology. ​B ERND KRACKE

Performing Authorship

Strategies of “Becoming an Author” in the Works of Paul Auster, Candice Breitz, Sophie Calle, and Jonathan Safran Foer SONJA LONGOLIUS

ANTJE CZUDAJ

earned her Ph.D. in American studies at

Humboldt-University Berlin, Germany. She lives and works in Zurich, Switzerland.

Authors do not create only artworks. In the process of creating, they simultaneously bring to life their author persona. Approaching this phenomenon from an interdisciplinary perspective, Sonja Longolius develops a concept of “performative authorship” by examining different strategies of “becoming an author.” She demonstrates this idea through a critical and comparative analysis of the works of Paul Auster, Candice Breitz, Sophie Calle, and Jonathan Safran Foer. Specifically, Auster/Calle and Breitz/Foer form a generational pair of opposites, enabling a discussion of postmodern and postpostmodern artistic strategies of performative authorship.

The first in-depth study of Miranda July’s work provides fascinating insights into the lifestyle of the contemporary white Californian middle class. Through an analysis of July’s award-winning intermedial output, Antje Czudaj lays bare July’s ability to use individualism and self-help as a way to constitute the creative class. Although a member of the creative class herself, July’s voice oscillates between irony and approval. July thus paints a fascinating portrait of neurotic hipsterism, which triggers selfreflection in the general reader and critical thinking in the cultural analyst.

How is transnational cooperation conducted in Rwanda, and how is it organized? Can the worlds of development aid and private business be compared? In this ethnography, Robin Pohl identifies the organizational patterns used by Rwandan, European, and Indian partners. The effects of potential divisions at the global level turn into assets or liabilities on the operative level of transboundary cooperations. ROBIN POHL

This rich ethnography analyzes coastal protection as a sociomaterial practice. Along the Aotearoa New Zealand coast, a new sociotechnical imaginary is emerging: coastal management working “with nature,” not against it.

This collection consists of eight essays that examine the way narratives determine our understanding of old age and condition how the experience is lived. The contributors to this volume base their analysis on the concept of “narrative identity” developed by Paul Ricoeur, built upon the idea that fiction makes life, and on his definition of the “trace” as the mark of time. By investigating the traces of aging imprinted on a series of literary and cinematic works, essays dismantle the narrative of old age as decline and foreclosure to reassemble one of transformation and growth.

Serialized storytelling provides intriguing opportunities for critical representations of age and aging. In contrast to the finite character of films, television narratives unfold across hundreds of episodes and multiple seasons. Contemporary viewing practices and new media technologies have resulted in complex television narratives in which experimental temporalities and revisions of narrative linearity and chronological time are key. This volume investigates how television series, such as Orange Is the New Black, The Wire, and Desperate Housewives, can be a powerful cultural medium shaping representations of age and aging and the idea of what it means to live in time.

Intersex Narratives explores representations of intersex persons and communities, along with the cultural concept and category of intersex, in contemporary North American literature and popular culture. The book focuses on the significant paradigm shift in narratives in early-1990s intersex activism as a response to the biopolitical regulation of intersex bodies. Focusing on the emergence of recent autobiographical stories and cultural productions, such as novels and television series centering on intersex, Viola Amato provides the first systematic analysis of an activism-triggered resignification. VIOLA AMATO

Houses, Secrets, and the Closet investigates the literary production of masculinities and their relation to secrets and sexualities in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century fiction. It closely reads Gothic and sensation novels, as well as tales by Henry James. The study approaches these texts through the lens of domestic space, gender, knowledge, and power. In this way, the book investigates the cultural roots of the closet, which reveals a more general notion of male secrecy in modern society. GERO BAUER

Toward Diversity and Emancipation

DiverCity—Global Cities as a Literary Phenomenon

Toronto, New York, and Los Angeles in a Globalizing Age

MARCEL THOENE

MELANIE U. POOCH

This book focuses on the pivotal role that space and spatiality play in the plot and narrative discourse of contemporary United States literary narratives. Marcel Thoene hypothesizes that the canon of novels selected represents a dialectic of simultaneous affirmation and subversion of the American myth of space. This brings about an integrative and emancipatory function of space that reflects a more transcultural, diverse, and conflicting postnational American society.

This work examines global cities as a literary phenomenon based on the reading of selected North American novels. Analyzing Dionne Brand’s Toronto in What We All Long For, Chang-rae Lee’s New York in Native Speaker, and Karen Tei Yamashita’s Los Angeles in Tropic of Orange, Melanie U. Pooch explores globalization and its effects, global cities as cultural nodal points, and cultural diversity in a globalizing age as a literary phenomenon.

The belief that Nature exists as a blank, stable stage upon which humans act out tragic performances of international relations is no longer tenable. In a world defined by human action, we must reorient our understanding of ourselves, our environment, and our security. This book considers how decentred and reflexive approaches to security are required to cope with the Anthropocene—the Human Age. Drawing from various disciplines, this bold reinterpretation explores the possibilities for understanding and preparing a future that will look vastly different from the past. The book asks us to dig deeper into what it means to be human and what it means to be secure in an age of ecological exception. CAMERON HARRINGTON

This volume interrogates the relationship between the increasing globalization of artistic discourse and the situatedness of its practices. Focusing on multiple recent practices of art, curating, historiography, and criticism, the contributors ask how contemporary forms of critique not only take into account new hegemonies and exclusions but also address transcultural entanglements in the arts. Thus, they challenge universalizing conceptions of art in the age of globalization. SARAH DORNHOF

Postcolonial Studies Meets Media Studies

EDITORS

INGRID KUMMELS, EDITORS

This collection brings together experts from media and communication studies with postcolonial-studies scholars to illustrate how the two fields may challenge and enrich each other. It encompasses essays on topics including media convergence, transcultural subjectivity, hegemony, piracy, and media history and colonialism. Drawing on examples from film, literature, music, television, and the internet, the contributors investigate the transnational dimensions of today’s media, engage with local and global media politics, and discuss media outlets as economic agents, thus illustrating mechanisms of power in postcolonial and neocolonial mediascapes.

Historical photographs taken in Latin America have become key sites for memory politics, ethnographic imagination, and the negotiation of identity. This volume opens up questions relating to the contemporaneous agency of images as well as their appropriation via new technologies. Case studies of pictures taken in Mexico, Colombia, Peru, and Brazil analyze these processes by tracing how the images have been resignified over time and space. The contributors examine photographs that have been recently rediscovered by such diverse actors as European museums, human rights organizations, anthropologists, shamans, local historians, and communities of internet users.

On Folding

Urban Nomads Building Shanghai

Towards a New Field of Interdisciplinary Research

Migrant Workers and the Construction Process

ULRIKE BRONNER AND CLARISSA REIKERSDORFER, EDITORS

It is only recently that the fold as a concept has begun to be thought of in a broader way across a range of disciplines. Folding as a material and structural process offers a new methodology for thinking about the relationship among matter, form, and code. It undoes old dichotomies, such as the organic and the inorganic or nature and technology, and blurs the boundaries among experimental, conceptual, and historical approaches. This anthology explores this new, interdisciplinary field and its disciplinary impact, with topics that range from materials science, biology, architecture, and mathematics to literature and philosophy.

This book looks at international business migrants and rural migrant workers in Shanghai. Harsh living and working conditions affecting rural migrant workers in the construction industry has led to the development of “Fair Building,” a socially conscious architecture that ensures stakeholders involved in the construction process contribute to a sustainable urbanization.

The principles of trauma-informed and culturally competent treatment/intervention are explained and assessed, as well as the challenges of minority stress and microaggressions experienced by the LGBT population. Separate sections focus on subpopulations of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgender individuals. Chapters center on LGBT youth, the elderly, family constellations and concerns, criminal justice issues, and rural LGBT substance abuse.

Highlighting current debates about concepts, methods, and policies related to poverty in Latin America, this book promotes fresh thinking about these issues regionally and globally. The authors develop new conceptual and practical avenues to address poverty, marginalization, exclusion, and old and new inequalities in post-neoliberal times. The volume is a unique opportunity for practitioners, policy makers, researchers, and students to access the most up-to-date perspectives on child poverty and inequality from a conceptual and practical point of view.

Progress in lifting children out of poverty has been slow in the developing world, and the recent global economic crisis has exacerbated child poverty, youth unemployment, and social exclusion in many developed countries. This book examines the long-term consequences of growing up poor, the close linkages between deprivation and human rights violations in childhood and adolescence, and their effects on labor-market entry and future careers. It makes a forceful case for the eradication of child poverty as a Sustainable Development Goal.

Dealing with the Yugoslav Past analyzes the representations of socialism in the nationalhistory museums of the former Yugoslavia. Through her travels to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, and Macedonia, Alina Zubkovych elucidates the process of constructing the national narratives that maintain and legitimize a particular vision of the common past. Crossnational comparison allows for analysis of the democratic development of each state in relation to the politics of memory in the region and the role of political actors in its construction.

ANDRE HÄRTEL, ANDREY MAKARYCHEV, ANDREAS UMLAND, MARCIN KACZMARSKI, AND NATASHA KUHRT, EDITORS

This special issue deals with the phenomenon of violence in the post-Soviet space. It examines both political and legal discourses and practices of internal and external violence, broadly conceived, aspiring to situate them in the broader literature on political violence and ethnic and separatist conflict, and to examine them from political, legal, and security studies perspectives. The contributors focus on structural sources of violence, such as the relevance of the self-determination principle, the role of democratization, and the relationship between violent behavior inside and outside the state. They also analyze the role of the Russian Federation in generating, perpetuating, and mitigating political violence. GUEST EDITORS: MARCIN KACZMARSKI

EDMUND GRIFFITHS

Aleksandr Prokhanov is a prize-winning novelist and, as editor of the weekly newspaper Zavtra, a leading figure in Russian imperial patriotism. He has been an influential voice in Russian political culture, grappling with the question of whether to endorse Vladimir Putin as a savior or expose him as a fraud. His novels and articles confront conspiracies, space exploration, the resurrection of the dead, and Stalin as a supernatural redeemer. This book strives to understand Prokhanov as the leading representative of post-Soviet esotericism. EDMUND GRIFFITHS

Contributions to Alternative Concepts of Knowledge

In the past, the European social sciences discredited knowledge that did not conform to their definition of scientific knowledge as an alternative, “indigenous” kind of knowledge. Perception has changed with time: not only has indigenous knowledge become a ticket to the world of European social science, but the indigenization of European theories is seen by some as the effort by peripheral social sciences to join the theories of the centers. This book contributes to the conversation on alternative concepts of knowledge, inviting the reader to decide if they are truly alternative, indigenous, or European types of knowledge. MICHAEL KUHN

Kazumi Okamoto develops analytical tools in this volume to study academic culture, analyze how social sciences create and distribute knowledge, and make sense of the influence the academic environment has on knowledge production. She uses the Japanese academy as a case study of how social scientists interpret academic practices and how they are affected by their academic environment. Studying Japanese academic culture reveals that academic practices and the academic environment are less diverse than cultural theories suggest. KAZUMI OKAMOTO

How the Social Sciences Think about the World’s Social Outline of a Critique MICHAEL KUHN

The Global Social Sciences— Under and Beyond European Universalism

MICHAEL KUHN AND HEBE VESSURI, EDITORS

MICHAEL KUHN

is the president of the World Social Sci-

“Western” and “Southern” approaches to the social sciences now argue about which social thought from which part of the world should prevail. If the critique becomes part of what it opposes, one might conclude that the European social sciences are adaptable and capable of learning. One might also wonder whether there is anything wrong with the criticism of the European social sciences or, for that matter, whether there is anything wrong with the European social sciences themselves. The essays in this volume revisit the mainstream critique of the European social sciences and suggest new arguments criticizing social science theories found in both the Western and Southern discourses.

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the social sciences took an epochal turn that revolutionized its theory building. As a response to what theorists called the globalization of the social, they realized the need to globalize their theorizing as well. It is curious that only after two centuries of colonialism and imperialism, after two world wars and several economic world crises, did they discover a world beyond the national socials. It is even stranger that the social sciences globalize their theorizing by comparing theories about nationally confined socials and by creating “local” theories, as if a national social was a secluded social biotope. Michael Kuhn argues that the oddities of the globalizing social sciences are not accidents but a consequence of the nature of how the social sciences theorize about the social.

Medical Philosophy

A Philosophical Analysis of Patient SelfPerception in Diagnostics and Therapy DAVID LÅG TOMASI

“A major scholarly contribution to the discussion and analysis of the European perceptions and stereotyping of the Turkish image and the Turkish Orient.” —Himmet Umunç, Başkent University

F O R S A L E O N LY I N T H E U N I T E D S TAT E S , C A N A D A , M E X I C O , CENTRAL AMERICA, SOUTH AMERICA, CARIBBEAN, AUSTRALIA, N E W Z E A L A N D, A N D A S I A ( E XC LU D I N G C H I N A A N D I N D I A )

The Ottomans’ failure in the second siege of Vienna in 1683 led to a reversal in the representation of Turks on the British stage. What then dazzled the aesthetic imagination was the sultan’s decadent seraglio. In this book, Esin Akalın draws on a range of seventeenth and eighteenth century plays to reach an understanding, from both a Western and non-European perspective, of how one culture represents another through discourse, historiography, and drama. Akalın elucidates how history serves literature and to what extent literature creates history. ESIN AKALIN

teaches in the department of English

language and literature at Istanbul Kültür University. She has written and directed several bilingual plays in Canada.

Foreword by Friedrich Luft

This innovative book distinguishes between philosophy of medicine and medical philosophy. The idea of patient and provider self-discovery becomes the method and strategy for therapeutic treatment. The book develops the concept of “central medicine,” aimed at overcoming the dichotomies of Western–Eastern medicine and traditional– integrative approaches. The author’s research incorporates neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and medicine in a clear, readable, and detailed way, satisfying the needs of professionals, students, and anyone who enjoys the exploration of the complexity of the human mind, brain, and heart. DAVID LÅG TOMASI

at the University of Vermont Medical Center, where he also serves on the Integrative Clinical Care, Research, and Education Committees for the UVM Program in Integrative Health.

Arguing for the importance of sociality as responsibility for the other, the approach embodied in this volume is based on intersubjectivity and introduces a new social dimension in phenomenology. It also allows for a different interpretation of the notion of justice.

This book addresses the ways in which a range of representational forms have influenced and helped implement the project of human rights across the world. It seeks to show how public discourses on law and politics grow out of and are influenced by the imaginative representations of human rights. The work uses historical, literary, anthropological, visual-arts, and media-studies methods and readings and covers a wide range of geographic areas. Commissioned essays by leading scholars and emerging academics show how a multidisciplinary approach can illuminate this central concern. GARETH GRIFFITHS

The Holocaust in the Central European Literatures and Cultures Problems of Poetization and Aestheticization

From the very beginning of Holocaust literature and culture, there were tendencies toward literarization, poetization, and ornamentalization. Today, aesthetic approaches are seen as important for evoking the attention required to keep the cataclysm alive in popular memory. The essays in this volume use examples from Polish, Czech, and German Holocaust literature and culture to draw attention to the poetry of concentration camp detainees, lyrical poetry about the Holocaust, poetic tendencies in narrative literature and drama, “ornamental prose”about the Holocaust, and the devices and functions of aestheticization in Holocaust literature and culture.

Forum offers insights into the history of ideas and reviews books on Central and Eastern European history. Through the translation of texts and contributions from Russian, Polish, and Czech researchers, it offers the Western reader access to the scholarly discourse of Eastern Europe.

This issue examines the fate of organized religion under state socialism. While totalitarianism means a rupture in the traditional idea of man, the church stands for continuity. That is why totalitarian rulers seek to expel the church from public perception and try to usurp the church from within. This volume investigates how this process took place in the countries of the former Soviet bloc.

Deciphering the many terms confronting international students at German-language universities can be difficult. Even if the degree program is in English, most administrative work must be done in German, and bureaucratic university jargon is a language unto itself. This guide helps international students and researchers understand the structures and organization of German universities by providing in-depth descriptions of terms and their origins, allowing for easier integration into the host university and its culture.

The Perfect Dictatorship China in the 21st Century STEIN RINGEN

The Chinese system is like no other known, now or in history. This book explains how the system works and where it may be moving.

Drawing on Chinese and international sources, on extensive collaboration with Chinese scholars, and on the political science of state analysis, Stein Ringen concludes that under the new leadership of Xi Jinping, the system of government has been transformed into a new regime radically harder and more ideological than the legacy of Deng Xiaoping. China is less strong economically and more dictatorial politically than the world has wanted to believe.

“A new interpretation of the Chinese party-state—shows the advantage that derives from a comparative theorist looking at the Chinese system.” —Tony Saich, Harvard University

Foreigners Under Mao

Western Lives in China, 1949–1976 BEVERLEY HOOPER

Foreigners under Mao is a pioneering study of the Western community during the turbulent Mao era. Based largely on personal interviews, memoirs, private letters, and archives, this book “gives a voice” to the Westerners who lived under Mao. It shows that China was not as closed to Western residents as has often been portrayed. The book examines the lives of six different groups of Westerners: “foreign comrades” who made their home in Mao’s China, twenty-two former Korean War POWs who controversially chose China ahead of repatriation, diplomats of Western countries that recognized the People’s Republic, the few foreign correspondents permitted to work in China, “foreign experts,” and language students. Each of these groups led distinct lives under Mao while sharing the experience of a highly politicized society and of official measures to isolate them from everyday China. BEVERLEY HOOPER

is emeritus professor of Chinese studies at the

University of Sheffield in the UK. She is the author of Inside Peking, 1948–1950.

Merchants were central to the huge growth in China’s foreign trade and contributed to the development of world markets and networks. Merchants of Canton and Macao: Success and Failure in Eighteenth-Century Chinese Trade brings together much new research about the inner workings of the merchants of Canton and Macao. The book studies in detail the leading Chinese merchants and merchant families, as well as the porcelain and silk trades. By examining the successes and failures of dozens of Chinese merchants involved in foreign trade, the book provides fresh insights into China’s unique form of capitalism and its role in the rise of global commerce. PAUL A. VAN DYKE

is professor of history at Sun Yat-sen

University in Guangzhou.

Tracing China chronicles forty years of fieldwork. The journey begins by exploring rural revolution and reconstitutions of community in South China; it spans decades of persistent rural-urban divide and eventually uncovers China’s global reach and Hong Kong’s cross-border dynamics. Siu traverses both physical and cultural landscapes, examines how political tumults transform into everyday lives, and fathoms the depths of human drama amid China’s frenetic momentum toward modernity. She highlights complicity, portraying how villagers, urbanites, cadres, entrepreneurs, and intellectuals—laden with historical baggage—venture forward. The question is: Have they become victims of the circumstances created by their own actions?

The essays are woven together by key themes in historical anthropology—culture, history, power, place making, and identity formation, informed by critical social theories and characterized by a careful scrutiny of fieldwork encounters and archival texts. HELEN F. SIU

Canton, Foreigners, and Architecture from the Late Eighteenth to the Early Twentieth Centuries JOHNATHAN ANDREW FARRIS

Enclave to Urbanity is the first book in English that examines how the architecture and the urban landscape of Guangzhou framed the relations between the Western mercantile and missionary communities and the city’s predominantly Chinese population. The book takes readers through the Thirteen Factories era from the eighteenth century to the 1850s; the Shamian enclave up to the early twentieth century; and the adoption of Western building techniques throughout the city as its architecture modernized in the early republic. The discussion of architecture embraces the history of shared and disputed spaces, using a broadly chronological approach that combines social history with architectural and spatial analysis. With more than a hundred carefully chosen images, this book illustrates how the foreign architectural footprints of the past form modern Guangzhou. JOHNATHAN ANDREW FARRIS

In this book, Shelly Bryant looks at five of Shanghai’s remaining classical gardens through their origins, changing fortunes, restorations, and links to a wider Chinese aesthetic. Shanghai’s classical gardens are as much text as space; they exist in art, poetry, and literature as much as in stone, rock, and earth. But these gardens have not remained static entities. Rather, they have been remodeled constantly since their inception. This book reflects this process within the constancy of traditional Chinese horticulture and reveals Shanghai’s remaining classical gardens as places representing wealth and social status, social and dynastic shifts, through falling family fortunes and political revolutions to search for a recovery of China’s ancient culture in the modern day.

Seemingly messy and chaotic, the landscapes and urban life of cities in Asia possess an order and hierarchy that often challenge understanding and appreciation. With a cross-disciplinary group of authors, Messy Urbanism examines a range of cases in Asia to explore the social and institutional politics of urban formality and the contexts in which this “messiness” emerges or is constructed. The book brings a distinct perspective to the broader patterns of informal urban orders and processes as well as their interplay with formalized systems and mechanisms. It also raises questions about the production of cities, cityscapes, and citizenship. Messy Urbanism will appeal to professionals, students, and scholars in the fields of urban studies, architecture, landscape architecture, planning and policy, and Asian studies. MANISH CHALANA

“How wonderful to see this classic volume printed in a new expanded edition for the twenty-first century!” —Gilbert Herdt, San Francisco State University

This is a fully revised and substantially expanded edition of Peter A. Jackson’s highly regarded pioneering study of an Asian gay culture, Male Homosexuality in Thailand (1989). The hero of Jackson’s fascinating narrative is Uncle Go, a popular magazine editor who, despite being avowedly heterosexual, was tolerant of all sexual practices and whose “agony uncle” columns in the 1970s provided unique spaces in the national press for Thailand’s gays, lesbians, and transgenders (kathoeys) to speak for themselves in the public domain. By allowing the voices of alternative sexualities to be heard, Uncle Go emerged as Thailand’s first champion of gender equality and sexual rights. Jackson translates and analyzes selected correspondence published in Uncle Go’s advice columns. PETER A. JACKSON

From Imperial Pillars of State to Global Real Men EDITED BY KAM LOUIE

In twelve chapters spanning the late imperial period to the present day, this volume brings a much needed historical dimension to the discussion.

TAN SEE KAM

“A rich and original study of one of the visionary director’s most acclaimed films. Tan See Kam’s knowledge of Peking opera traditions and the ‘three women’ tradition in Chinese cinema provides indispensable contexts for understanding Tsui Hark’s Peking Opera Blues.” —Karen Fang, author of John Woo’s A Better Tomorrow

Part historical drama, part thriller, and part comedy, Tsui Hark’s Peking Opera Blues (1986) invites examinations from multiple perspectives. Tan See Kam rises to the challenge in this study by first situating Tsui in a Sinophone context. The diasporic director explores different dimensions of “Chineseness” in the film by depicting competing versions of Chinese nationalism and presenting characters speaking two Chinese languages, Cantonese and Mandarin. He compels viewers to recognize the multiplicities of the Chinese identity and rethink what constitutes cultural Chineseness. More than a quarter of a century after its release, Tan shows, Peking Opera Blues still reverberates in the present time. TAN SEE KAM

It is now almost a cliché to claim that China and the Chinese people have changed. Yet inside the new clothing that is worn by the Chinese man today, Kam Louie contends, we still see much of the historical Chinese man. With contributions from a team of outstanding scholars, Changing Chinese Masculinities studies a range of Chinese men in diverse and, most important Chinese contexts. It explores the fundamental meaning of manhood in the Chinese setting and the very notion of an indigenous Chinese masculinity.

Hong Kong’s approach to heritage conservation has focused mainly on saving an old building here and there with little or no regard to its surroundings. Recent public debates challenging proposals to demolish the former Central Government Offices have highlighted this problem and acknowledged that the heritage value of the buildings is enhanced by their contribution to the broader “cultural landscape” of Government Hill. This book illustrates the concept of cultural landscape using wonderful local examples and champions this new approach to more effectively interpreting and conserving Hong Kong’s heritage sites.

As the longest serving and the most influential bishop of Hong Kong, Bishop R. O. Hall played a crucial role in the reconstruction of the Anglican Church and Hong Kong after the Second World War. Born in England, the bishop committed his life to building bridges: between China and England; between Hong Kong workers and company management; between the government and the Hong Kong people; and between man and the divine. Based on primary archival and private materials, this book shows that Bishop Hall, wholehearted in pursuit of his goals through “love-in-action,” was also multifaceted, with longings, questions, and inner contradictions we all share.

EDITED BY MARK BRAY, ORA KWO, AND BORIS JOKIĆ

Illustrious Illuminations presents a selection of illuminated Christian manuscripts from the McCarthy Collection. Ranging in date from the High Gothic to the High Renaissance (1250–1540), the miniature paintings give evidence of the talent and culture connected to the art of book illustration. Many of the vibrant hand-copied volumes contain some of the finest illustrations ever produced in Europe. These illustrations were chosen from Bibles, books of hours, and psalters to exemplify a shift from Gothic to Renaissance lines. The often harder, more contrasting lines of the Gothic give way to the Renaissance’s altogether natural contours, as well as to softer and increasingly personal facial features.

Private supplementary tutoring, known as shadow education, has expanded worldwide. Presenting methodological lessons from diverse cultures, this book contains chapters from high-income and low-income settings in Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, and the Middle East. The book will assist consumers and producers of research. Consumers will become better judges of the strengths, weaknesses and orientations of literature on the theme, and producers will gain insights for the design of instruments, collection of data, and interpretation of findings.

Poverty in a Rich Society

Philosophy, Aesthetics, Gender, and Politics

The Case of Hong Kong

EVA MAN

MAGGIE LAU, EDITOR

Bodies in China uses Chinese philosophy to reframe Western scholarship on gender, body, and aesthetics. Does Confucianism rule out the capacity of women as moral subjects and therefore as aesthetic subjects? Do forms of Chinese philosophy contribute or correspond to patriarchal Confucian culture? Can Chinese philosophy provide alternative perspectives for Western feminist scholars?

EVA MAN

“An important perspective on Hong Kong society and the social problems that have not been eradicated by decades of free markets and economic growth. The authors show how policy deficiencies in social security, taxation, health, housing, and education have prevented the fruits of economic growth from being widely shared and have contributed to high and entrenched levels of poverty.

Bibliography

Born into a Polish szlachta (noble) family, the extraordinary modern novelist Joseph Conrad maintained, even in exile, strong ties to his Polish heritage and culture. Yet the author earned renown by writing in English, often about nautical adventures in remote parts of the world. In Joseph Conrad’s Polish Soul, G. W. Stephen Brodsky seeks to reclaim the essentially Polish sensibility of Conrad’s groundbreaking oeuvre. He finds in Conrad’s work a distinct Polonism that plays intriguingly with selfhood, freedom, and irony. For Brodsky, Conrad’s outlook and writing betray numerous contradictions. Despite the novelist’s practical realism, Conrad was drawn to romance, orientalism, and the exotic. Frequently sick, he nevertheless pursued a life at sea. He despised adventurers yet desired risk. Instinctive skepticism, conservatism, and nationalism complicated his liberalism and respect for humanity, and though he resigned himself to Poland’s tragic destiny, Conrad refused to despair over the terribleness of his times. In this incomparable study, Brodsky shows how these inherent aspects of Conrad’s personality inform and guide his Polonism along with the best attributes of his fiction. G. W. STEPHEN BRODSKY
