Dear Readers,

In a time of widespread mistrust and uncertainty, it is more vital than ever for scholars to find new ways to communicate with a broader public. In this season’s catalogue, we are proud to present important books that seek to bridge that gap.

We are honored to begin a partnership with the essential online magazine Public Books. Columbia and Public Books share a conviction about the importance of academic knowledge for public debate, and we both believe that vital intellectual insights can and should be offered without oversimplification or undue complexity. Think in Public (p. 2) and Antidemocracy in America (p. 3) embody these values.

Among our many extraordinary titles this season, In the Ruins of Neoliberalism (p. 5), by the political theorist Wendy Brown, cuts through the confusion about neoliberalism to show its connection to today’s right-wing populism (p. 5); Nonbinary (p. 24) reveals a spectrum of gender identities through powerful personal stories; and Partha Dasgupta’s Time and the Generations (p. 26) rethinks the ethics of population in light of sustainability.

Our work with Columbia authors and institutions draws on and deepens the university’s intellectual strengths and mission. Herbert S. Terrace explains Why Chimpanzees Can’t Learn Language and Only Humans Can (p. 1), bridging psychology and linguistics to show what separates us from our closest kin. The Columbia Center for Oral History Research sheds new light on Robert Rauschenberg (p. 7) and what his career reveals about the sociology of great art. And A Time for Critique (p. 33), coedited by Bernard E. Harcourt of the Columbia Center for Contemporary Critical Thought, considers the future of critical theory in the public sphere. It is because of you—our readers, partners, and the university community—that we are able to publish these groundbreaking works. Thank you for your support of our books and our mission. Jennifer Crewe Associate Provost and Director

Why Chimpanzees Can’t Learn Language and Only Humans Can HERBERT S. TERRACE

WHAT A C H IM PANZE E R E V E A L S A BO U T H U M A N I T Y ’ S U N I Q UE AB IL IT Y FOR L A N G UAG E

In the 1970s, the behavioral psychologist Herbert S. Terrace led a remarkable experiment to see if a chimpanzee could be taught to use language. A young ape, named “Nim Chimpsky” in a nod to the linguist whose theories Terrace challenged, was raised by a family in New York and instructed in American Sign Language. Initially, Terrace thought that Nim could create sentences but later discovered that Nim’s teachers inadvertently cued his signing. Terrace concluded that Project Nim failed—not because Nim couldn’t create sentences but because he couldn’t even learn words. Language is a uniquely human quality, and attempting to find it in animals is wishful thinking at best. The failure of Project Nim meant we were no closer to understanding where language comes from.

In this book, Terrace revisits Project Nim to offer a novel view of the origins of human language. In contrast to both Noam Chomsky and his critics, Terrace contends that words, as much as grammar, are the cornerstones of language. Retracing human evolution and developmental psychology, he shows that nonverbal interaction is the foundation of infant language acquisition, leading up to a child’s first words. By placing words and conversation before grammar, we can, for the first time, account for the evolutionary basis of language. Terrace argues that this theory explains Nim’s inability to acquire words and, more broadly, the differences between human and animal communication. Why Chimpanzees Can’t Learn Language and Only Humans Can is a masterful statement of the nature of language and what it means to be human. HERBERT S. TERRACE

“Terrace played a very significant role in ape language research. His personal reflections and the conclusions he has drawn about language remain both controversial and relevant.” —Terrence W. Deacon, professor of anthropology, University of California, Berkeley

“In this work, the distinguished psychologist Herbert S. Terrace illustrates a unique comparative perspective on the nature and evolution of language.” —Charles Yang, professor of linguistics and computer science, director of the Program in Cognitive Science, University of Pennsylvania

Antidemocracy in America

Truth, Power, and the Republic at Risk ERIC KLINENBERG, CAITLIN ZALOOM, AND SHARON MARCUS, EDITORS U N D ER STAND ING H OW A N D W H Y D E M O CR ACY I S THRE AT ENED TODAY

On Election Day in 2016, it seemed unthinkable that Donald Trump could become president of the United States. But the victories of the Obama administration hid fundamental problems deeply rooted in American social institutions and history. The election drastically changed how Americans experience their country, especially for those threatened by the public outburst of bigotry and repression. Amid the deluge of tweets and breaking news stories that turn each day into a political soap opera, it can be difficult to see the big picture. To confront the threats we face, we must recognize that the Trump presidency is a symptom, not the malady.

Antidemocracy in America is a collective effort to understand how we got to this point and what can be done about it. It offers essays from many of the nation’s leading scholars, experts on topics including race, religion, gender, civil liberties, protest, inequality, immigration, climate change, and the role of the media. They place our present in international and historical context, considering the worldwide turn toward authoritarianism and its varied precursors. Each essay seeks to inform our understanding of the fragility of American democracy and suggests how to protect it from the buried contradictions that Trump’s victory brought into public view. ERIC KLINENBERG

Emancipation After Hegel

Achieving a Contradictory Revolution TODD M c GOWAN W H Y A RA DI CA L REI N TERP RETATI O N O F HEGEL CA N R E I N VI GO RATE P O LI TI C S TO DAY

Hegel is making a comeback. After the decline of the Marxist Hegelianism that dominated the twentieth century, leading thinkers are rediscovering Hegel’s thought as a resource for contemporary politics. What does a notoriously difficult nineteenth-century German philosopher have to offer the present? How should we understand Hegel, and what does understanding Hegel teach us about confronting our most urgent challenges?

“This is the book we were waiting for after long years of being bombarded by Hegel as a closet liberal whose last word is recognition. With Todd McGowan, the revolutionary Hegel is back—however, it is not the old Marxist Hegel but the Hegel after Marx. Hegel’s problem is our problem today: how to save the project of radical emancipation after the catastrophe of Stalinism. In a truly democratic country, Emancipation After Hegel would be reprinted in hundreds of thousands of copies and distributed freely. Read this book, or ignore it at your own risk!” —Slavoj Žižek, author of Less Than Nothing and Absolute Recoil

Todd McGowan offers us a Hegel for the twentyfirst century. Simultaneously an introduction to Hegel and a fundamental reimagining of Hegel’s project, Emancipation After Hegel presents a radical Hegel who speaks to a world overwhelmed by right-wing populism, authoritarianism, neoliberalism, and economic inequalities. McGowan argues that the revolutionary core of Hegel’s thought is contradiction. He reveals that contradiction is inexorable and that we must attempt to sustain it rather than overcoming it or dismissing it as a logical failure. McGowan contends that Hegel’s notion of contradiction, when applied to contemporary problems, challenges any assertion of unitary identity as every identity is in tension with itself and dependent on others. An accessible and compelling reinterpretation of an often-misunderstood thinker, this book shows us a way forward to a new politics of emancipation as we reconcile ourselves to the inevitability of contradiction and find solidarity in not belonging.

In the Ruins of Neoliberalism

The Rise of Antidemocratic Politics in the West WENDY BROWN HOW NEOL IB ER AL ISM M A D E R I G H T-W I N G POP UL IS M INEV ITAB L E

Across the West, hard-right leaders are surging to power on platforms of ethno-economic nationalism, Christianity, and traditional family values. Is this phenomenon the end of neoliberalism or its monstrous offspring?

In the Ruins of Neoliberalism casts the hard-right turn as animated by socioeconomically aggrieved white working- and middle-class populations but contoured by neoliberalism’s multipronged assault on democratic values. From its inception, neoliberalism flirted with authoritarian liberalism as it warred against robust democracy. It repelled social-justice claims through appeals to market freedom and morality. It sought to de-democratize the state, economy, and society and resecure the patriarchal family. In key works of the founding neoliberal intellectuals, Wendy Brown traces the ambition to replace democratic orders with ones disciplined by markets and traditional morality and democratic states with technocratic ones.

© E K KO VO N S C H W I C H OW

Yet plutocracy, white supremacy, politicized mass affect, indifference to truth, and extreme social disinhibition were no part of the neoliberal vision. Brown theorizes their unintentional spurring by neoliberal reason, from its attack on the value of society and its fetish of individual freedom to its legitimation of inequality. Above all, she argues, neoliberalism’s intensification of nihilism coupled with its accidental wounding of white-male supremacy generates an apocalyptic populism willing to destroy the world rather than endure a future in which this supremacy disappears.

Robert Rauschenberg

An Oral History

SARA SINCLAIR WITH PETER BEARMAN AND MARY MARSHALL CLARK, EDITORS THE T UR B UL ENT L IF E O F A G R E AT A RT I ST AS TO L D BY THOS E C LOS EST TO H I M

Robert Rauschenberg is a work of collaborative oral biography that tells the story of one of the twentieth century’s great artists through a series of interviews with key figures in his life—family, friends, former lovers, professional associates, studio assistants, and collaborators. Drawing on the extensive archives of the Columbia Center for Oral History, the oral historian Sara Sinclair artfully puts the narrators’ reminiscences in conversation, with a focus on the relationship between Rauschenberg’s intense social life and his art.

The narrators share their views on Rauschenberg’s work, explore the curatorial thinking behind exhibitions of his art, and reflect on the impact of the influx of money into the contemporary art market. Included are artists famous in their own right, such as Laurie Anderson and Brice Marden, as well as art-world insiders and lesser-known figures who were part of Rauschenberg’s inner circle. Beyond considering Rauschenberg as an artist, this book reveals him as a man embedded in a series of art worlds over the course of a long and rich life, demonstrating the complex interaction of business and personal, public and private in the creation of great art. SARA SINCLAIR

City of Workers, City of Struggle

How Labor Movements Changed New York JOSHUA B. FREEMAN, EDITOR

A R I CHLY I LLUSTRATED HI STO RY O F WO RKI N G LI FE I N N E W YO RK C I TY

From the founding of New Amsterdam until today, working people have helped create and re-create the City of New York through their struggles. Starting with artisans and slaves in colonial New York and ranging all the way to twenty-first-century gigeconomy workers, this book tells the story of New York’s labor history anew.

City of Workers, City of Struggle brings together essays by leading historians of New York and a wealth of illustrations, offering rich descriptions of work, daily life, and political struggle. It recounts how workers have developed formal and informal groups not only to advance their own interests but also to pursue a vision of what the city should be like and whom it should be for. The book goes beyond the largely white, male wage workers in mainstream labor organizations who have dominated the history of labor movements to look at enslaved people, indentured servants, domestic workers, sex workers, day laborers, and others who have had to fight not only their masters and employers but also labor groups that often excluded them. Through their stories—how they fought for inclusion or developed their own ways to advance—it recenters labor history for contemporary struggles. City of Workers, City of Struggle offers the definitive account of the four-hundred-year history of efforts by New York workers to improve their lives and their communities.

“City of Workers, City of Struggle reveals how early colonists, later immigrants, and rural migrants became central to New York City’s manufacturing, trading, and financial industries. Evocatively illustrated, each chapter offers tales of mobilization and resistance experienced by diverse and ever changing populations of New Yorkers. Together these chapters provide powerful insights into the interdependence of labor and capital.” —Alice Kessler-Harris, coeditor of Democracy and the Welfare State: The Two Wests in an Age of Austerity

On Bicycles

A 200-Year History of Cycling in New York City EVAN FRISS HOW T H E B ICYC L E S H A PE D N E W YO R K—A N D N E W YOR K S H AP ED B ICYC L I N G

Subways and yellow taxis may be the icons of New York transportation, but it is the bicycle that has the longest claim to New York’s streets: two hundred years and counting. Never has it taken to the streets without controversy: 1819 was the year of not only the city’s first bicycle but also its first bicycle ban. Debates around the bicycle’s place in city life have been so persistent not just because of its many uses— recreation, sport, transportation, business—but because of changing conceptions of who cyclists are. In On Bicycles, Evan Friss traces the colorful and fraught history of bicycles—and bicyclists—in New York City. He uncovers the bicycle’s place in the city over time, showing how the bicycle has served as a mirror of the city’s changing social, economic, infrastructural, and cultural politics since it first appeared. It has been central, as when horse-drawn carriages shared the road with bicycle lanes in the 1890s; peripheral, when Robert Moses’s car-centric vision made room for bicycles only as recreation; and aggressively marginalized, when Ed Koch’s battle against bike messengers culminated in the short-lived 1987 Midtown bike ban. On Bicycles illuminates how the city as we know it today— veined with over a thousand miles of bicycle lanes and dotted with bright blue Citi Bikes—reflects a fitful journey powered—and opposed—by New York City’s people and its politics.

RUSSIAN LIBRARY

Nikolai Nikolaevich and Camouflage

Two Novels

YUZ ALESHKOVSKY Translated by Duffield White Edited by Susanne Fusso G U L AG SLA N G MEETS SC I EN C E FI C TI O N

Among contemporary Russian writers, Yuz Aleshkovsky stands out for his vivid imagination, his mixing of realism and fantasy, and his virtuosic use of the rich tradition of Russian obscene language. These two novels, written in the 1970s, display Aleshkovsky’s linguistic gifts and keen observations of Soviet life. Nikolai Nikolaevich begins when its titular hero, a pickpocket by trade, is released from prison after World War II and finds a job in a Moscow biological laboratory. He is soon recruited to provide sperm for strange experiments intended to create life in the Andromeda galaxy and finds himself at the center of the 1948 purge of biological science. The narrator of Camouflage is an alcoholic who claims that he and his gang of friends are just one part of a vast camouflaging operation organized by the Party to hide the Soviet Union’s underground military-industrial complex from the CIA’s spy satellites. Nikolai Nikolaevich and Camouflage introduces English-speaking readers to a master of the comic first-person narrative.

“Forget old myths about censored, obedient Soviet citizens, and meet Yuz Aleshkovsky’s wildly enterprising and emphatically free-thinking protagonists, who don’t hesitate to use colorful language to make a point about body politics, the scientific use of semen, and other absurdities of modern life.” —Yvonne Howell, University of Richmond

Klotsvog

MARGARITA KHEMLIN

Translated by Lisa Hayden Foreword by Lara Vapnyar A VOIC E- D R IV EN P ORT R AYA L O F T H E S OV I ET J E W I S H E XPER IENC E

Klotsvog is a novel about being Jewish in the Soviet Union and the historical trauma of World War II— and it’s a novel about the petty dramas and demons of one wonderfully vain woman. Maya Abramovna Klotsvog has had quite a life, and she wants you to know all about it. Selfish, garrulous, and thoroughly entertaining, she tells us where she came from, who she didn’t get along with, and what became of all her husbands and lovers. In Klotsvog, Margarita Khemlin creates a firstperson narrator who is both deeply self-absorbed and deeply compelling. From Maya’s perspective, Khemlin unfurls a retelling of the Soviet Jewish experience that integrates the historical and the personal into her protagonist’s vividly drawn inner and outer lives. Maya’s life story flows as a long monologue, told in unfussy language dense with Khemlin’s magnificently manipulated Soviet clichés and matter-of-fact descriptions of Soviet life. Born in a center of Jewish life in Ukraine, she spent the war in evacuation in Kazakhstan. She has few friends but several husbands, and her relationships with her relatives are strained at best. The war looms over Klotsvog, and the trauma runs deep, as do the ambiguities and ambivalences of Jewish identity. Lisa Hayden’s masterful translation brings this gripping character study full of dark, sly humor and new perspectives on Jewish heritage and survival to an English-speaking audience.

“With abundant theatricality and often mordant wit, these plays represent some of the best and most enduring works from a vital generation of new Russian playwrights.” —Christian Parker, Columbia University

“There has never been a more important moment to stay connected to the Russian theater and culture. This rich, comprehensive, and timely anthology offers a vital and inspiring lifeline for scholars, students, theater makers, and the general public alike.” —Duška Radosavljević, Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London

New Russian Drama took shape at the turn of the new millennium—a time of turbulent social change in Russia and the former Soviet republics. Emerging from small playwriting festivals, provincial theaters, and converted basements, it evolved into a major artistic movement that startled audiences with hypernaturalistic portrayals of sex and violence, daring use of nonnormative language, and thrilling experiments with genre and form. The movement’s commitment to investigating contemporary reality helped revitalize Russian theater. It also provoked confrontations with traditionalists in society and places of power, making theater once again Russia’s most politicized art form.

This anthology offers an introduction to New Russian Drama through plays that illustrate the versatility and global relevance of this exciting movement. Many of them address pressing social issues, such as ethnic tensions and political disillusionment; others engage with Russia’s rich cultural legacy by reimagining traditional genres and canons. Among them are a family drama about Anton Chekhov, a modern production play in which factory workers compose haiku, and a satirical verse play about the treatment of migrant workers, as well a documentary play about a terrorist school siege and a postdramatic “text” that is only two sentences long. Both politically and aesthetically uncompromising, they chart new paths for performance in the twenty-first century. Acquainting English-language readers with these vital works, New Russian Drama challenges us to reflect on the status and mission of the theater.

Nainai has lived in Shanghai for many years, and the time has come to find a wife for her adopted grandson. But when the bride she has chosen arrives from the countryside, it soon becomes clear that the orphaned girl has ideas of her own. Her name is Fu Ping, and the more she explores the residential lanes and courtyards behind Shanghai’s busy shopping streets, the less she wants to return to the country as a dutiful wife. As Fu Ping wavers over her future, she learns the city through the stories of the nannies, handymen, and garbage collectors whose labor is bringing life and bustle back to postwar Shanghai.

Fu Ping is a keenly observed portrait of the lives of lower-class women in Shanghai in the early years of the People’s Republic of China. Wang Anyi, one of contemporary China’s most acclaimed authors, explores the daily lives of migrants from rural areas and other people on the margins of urban life. In shifting perspectives rich in detail and psychological insight, she sketches their aspirations, their fears, and the subtle ties that bind them together. In Howard Goldblatt’s masterful translation, Fu Ping reveals Wang Anyi’s precise renderings of history, class, and the human heart. WANG ANYI

Hot Carbon

Carbon-14 and a Revolution in Science JOHN F. MARRA H OW CA RBO N -14 CATA LYZ ED A CASCA DE O F T R A N SFO RMATI VE DI SCOVERI ES

There are few fields of science that carbon-14 has not touched. A radioactive isotope of carbon, it stands out for its unusually long half-life. Best known for its application to estimating the age of artifacts—carbon dating—carbon-14 helped reveal new chronologies of human civilization and geological time. Everything containing carbon, the basis of all life, could be placed in time according to the clock of radioactive decay, with research applications ranging from archeology to oceanography to climatology. “You may never have heard of carbon-14, but from chemistry to physiology to oceanography, no isotope has affected more aspects of modern life. With precision and verve, the oceanographer John F. Marra profiles the most important isotope on earth.” —Eli Kintisch, correspondent, Science magazine

“This book is a page-turner for anyone interested in the history of scientific discovery.” —James J. McCarthy, Alexander Agassiz Professor of Biological Oceanography, Harvard University

In Hot Carbon, John F. Marra tells the story of this scientific revolution. He weaves together the workings of the many disciplines that employ carbon-14 with gripping tales of the individuals who pioneered its possibilities. He describes the concrete applications of carbon-14 to the study of all the stuff of life on earth, from climate science’s understanding of change over time to his own work on oceanic photosynthesis with microscopic phytoplankton. Marra’s engaging narrative encompasses nuclear testing, the peopling of the Americas, elephant poaching, and the flax plants used for the linen in the Shroud of Turin. Combining colorful narrative prose with accessible explanations of fundamental science, Hot Carbon is a thought-provoking exploration of how the power of carbon-14 informs our relationship to the past.

The Story of the Dinosaurs in 25 Discoveries

Amazing Fossils and the People Who Found Them DONALD R. PROTHERO 2 5 V IV ID V IGNET T ES O N T H E H I STO RY O F D I N OSAU R PAL EONTOLOGY

Today, any kid can rattle off the names of dozens of dinosaurs. But it took centuries of scientific effort—and a lot of luck—to discover and establish the diversity of dinosaur species we now know. How did we learn that Triceratops had three horns? Why don’t many paleontologists consider Brontosaurus a valid genus? What convinced scientists that modern birds are relatives of ancient Velociraptor?

The Story of the Dinosaurs in 25 Discoveries tells the fascinating stories behind the most important fossil finds and the intrepid researchers who unearthed them. Donald R. Prothero weaves together the dramatic tales of dinosaur discoveries with what modern science now knows about the species to which they belong. Prothero takes us from eighteenth-century sightings of colossal bones taken for biblical giants through recent discoveries of enormous predators even larger than Tyrannosaurus. He recounts the escapades of the larger-than-life personalities who made modern paleontology, including scientific rivalries like the nineteenth-century “Bone Wars.” Prothero also details how to draw the boundaries between species and explores debates such as whether dinosaurs had feathers, explaining the findings that settled them or keep them going. Throughout, he offers a clear and rigorous look at what paleontologists consider sound interpretation of evidence. An essential read for any dinosaur lover, this book teaches us to see an ancient world ruled by giant majestic creatures anew. DONALD R. PROTHERO

“A grand tour of dinosaurs, from one of our most prolific naturalhistory writers. I’ve been reading Prothero’s books since I began studying geology in college, and here he delivers again, with a romping chronicle of some of the most charismatic dinosaurs and the equally fascinating people who have studied them.” —Steve Brusatte, University of Edinburgh paleontologist and New York Times best-selling author of The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs

The theory of plate tectonics transformed earth science. The hypothesis that the earth’s outermost layers consist of mostly rigid plates that move over an inner surface helped describe the growth of new seafloor, confirm continental drift, and explain why earthquakes and volcanoes occur in some places and not others. Lynn R. Sykes played a key role in the birth of plate tectonics, conducting revelatory research on earthquakes. In this book, he gives an invaluable insider’s perspective on the theory’s development and its implications.

Sykes combines lucid explanation of how plate tectonics revolutionized geology with unparalleled personal reflections. He entered the field when it was on the cusp of radical discoveries. Studying the distribution and mechanisms of earthquakes, Sykes pioneered the identification of seismic gaps— regions that have not ruptured in great earthquakes for a long time—and methods to estimate the possibility of quake recurrence. He recounts the various phases of his career, including his antinuclear activism, and the stories of colleagues around the world who took part in changing the paradigm. Sykes delves into the controversies over earthquake prediction and their importance, especially in the wake of the Fukushima accident. He highlights geology’s lessons for nuclear safety, explaining why historic earthquake patterns are crucial to understanding the risks to power plants. Plate Tectonics and Great Earthquakes is the story of a scientist witnessing a revolution and playing an essential role in making it. LYNN R. SYKES

Thomas Berry A Biography

MARY EVELYN TUCKER, JOHN GRIM, AND ANDREW ANGYAL T H E F I RST B I O GRA P HY O F A N ESSEN TI A L E CO LO GI CA L THI N K ER

Thomas Berry (1914–2009) was one of the twentieth century’s most prescient and profound thinkers. As a cultural historian, he sought a broader perspective on humanity’s relationship to the earth in order to respond to the ecological and social challenges of our times. The first biography of Berry, this book illuminates his remarkable vision and its continuing relevance for achieving transformative social change and environmental renewal. “This book gives tribute to an important thinker who influenced and shaped the fields of crosscultural studies, religion, and ecology in the twentieth century. The intellectual endeavor of Thomas Berry articulates the failings of the Eurocentric nation-state model and urges listening to the unintended consequences of human hegemony over the natural order of the world.” —Christopher Key Chapple, Doshi Professor of Indic and Comparative Theology, Loyola Marymount University

Berry began his studies in Western history and religions and expanded to include Asian and indigenous religions, which he taught at Fordham University, Barnard College, and Columbia University. Drawing on his explorations of history, he came to see the evolutionary process as a story that could help restore the continuity of humans with the natural world. Berry urged humans to recognize their place on a planet with complex ecosystems in a vast evolving universe. He sought to replace the modern alienation from nature with a sense of intimacy and responsibility. Berry called for new forms of ecological education, law, and spirituality and the creation of resilient agricultural systems, bioregions, and ecocities. At a time of growing environmental crisis, this biography shows the ongoing significance of Berry’s conception of human interdependence with the earth within the unfolding journey of the universe.

Social Media and the Public Interest

Media Regulation in the Disinformation Age PHILIP M. NAPOLI WHY S OC IAL M ED IA S H O U L D BE R E G U L AT E D L I K E OTH ER FOR M S OF M E D I A

Facebook, a platform created by undergraduates in a Harvard dorm room, has transformed the ways millions of people consume news, understand the world, and participate in the political process. Despite taking on many of journalism’s traditional roles, Facebook and other platforms, such as Twitter and Google, have presented themselves as tech companies—and therefore not subject to the same regulations and ethical codes as conventional media organizations. In contrast to tech companies’  boasts of disruptive innovation, Philip M. Napoli offers a timely and persuasive case for seeing social media as news media, with a fundamental obligation to serve the public interest.

Social Media and the Public Interest explores how and why social-media platforms became so central to news consumption and distribution as they met many of the challenges of finding information—and audiences—online. Napoli illustrates the implications of a system in which coders and engineers drive out journalists and editors as the gatekeepers who determine media content. He argues that a social-media-driven news ecosystem represents a failure in what he calls the algorithmic marketplace of ideas. To respond, we need to rethink fundamental elements of media governance based on a revitalized concept of the public interest. A compelling examination of the intersection of social media and journalism, Social Media and the Public Interest offers valuable insights for the democratic governance of today’s most influential shapers of news. PHILIP M. NAPOLI

“While recent episodes have raised questions about algorithmic manipulation and discrimination, what remained missing was a truly comprehensive account, one that not only synthesizes the state of affairs but also offers a conceptual framework for interpreting these developments in light of public policy, news values and ethics, and the future of the public sphere. This book bridges that gap.” —Seth Lewis, Papé Chair in Emerging Media, University of Oregon

The Limits of Tolerance

Enlightenment Values and Religious Fanaticism DENIS LACORNE Translated by C. Jon Delogu and Robin Emlein W H Y DEMO C RATI C SO C I ETI ES N EED A N EX PA N SI VE CO N CEP T O F TO LERA N C E

The modern notion of tolerance—the welcoming of diversity as a force for the common good—emerged in the Age of Enlightenment in the wake of centuries of religious wars. First elaborated by philosophers such as John Locke and Voltaire, religious tolerance gradually gained ground in Europe and North America. But with the resurgence of fanaticism and terrorism, religious tolerance is increasingly being challenged by frightened publics.

In this book, Denis Lacorne traces the emergence of the modern notion of religious tolerance in order to rethink how we should respond to its contemporary tensions. In a wide-ranging argument that spans the Ottoman Empire, the Venetian republic, and recent controversies such as France’s burqa ban and the white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville, The Limits of Tolerance probes crucial questions: Should we impose limits on freedom of expression in the name of human dignity or decency? Should we accept religious symbols in the public square? Can we tolerate the intolerant? While acknowledging that tolerance can never be entirely without limits, Lacorne defends the Enlightenment concept against recent attempts to circumscribe it, arguing that without it a pluralistic society cannot survive. The winner of the prestigious Prix Montyon de l’Académie Française, The Limits of Tolerance is a powerful reflection on twenty-first-century democracy’s most fundamental challenges.

“I simply don’t know a book on toleration that compares to this one. Denis Lacorne has managed to weave together both an intellectual history of ideas about toleration and a wide-ranging international survey of policies related to it. Theory and practice come together in a very illuminating way and will expand the American reader’s horizon beyond our borders.” —Mark Lilla, author of The Once and Future Liberal: After Identity Politics

Vice, Crime, and Poverty

How the Western Imagination Invented the Underworld DOMINIQUE KALIFA Translated by Susan Emanuel. Foreword by Sarah Maza G ETTING TO T H E BOT TO M O F T H E C U LT U R A L M Y T H OF THE C R IM INAL UND E RWO R L D

Beggars, outcasts, urchins, waifs, prostitutes, criminals, convicts, madmen, fallen women, lunatics, degenerates—part reality, part fantasy, these are the grotesque faces that populate the underworld, the dark inverse of our everyday world. Lurking in the mirror that we hold up to our society, they are our counterparts and our doubles, repelling us and yet offering the tantalizing promise of escape. Although these images testify to undeniable social realities, the sordid lower depths make up a symbolic and social imaginary that reflects our fears and anxieties—as well as our desires.

In Vice, Crime, and Poverty, Dominique Kalifa traces the untold history of the concept of the underworld and its representations in popular culture. He examines how the myth of the lower depths came into being in nineteenth-century Europe as biblical figures and Christian traditions were adapted for a world turned upside-down by the era of industrialization, democratization, and mass culture. From the Parisian demimonde to Victorian squalor, from the slums of New York to the sewers of Buenos Aires, Kalifa deciphers the making of an image that has cast an enduring spell on its audience. While the social conditions that created that underworld have changed, Vice, Crime, and Poverty shows that, from social-scientific ideas of the underclass to contemporary cinema and steampunk culture, its shadows continue to haunt us. DOMINIQUE KALIFA

“Dominique Kalifa is one of the best French cultural historians of his generation and a worthy successor to Alain Corbin at the Sorbonne. Vice, Crime, and Poverty examines the urban ‘underworld,’ not in the twentieth-century sense of organized crime but as an imaginary shaped discursively in the nineteenth century by a widespread if morbid fascination with the apparent dangers of urban life.” —Edward Berenson, author of Europe in the Modern World

In his annual seminars on major topics and pivotal figures, Badiou developed vital aspects of his thinking on a range of subjects that he would go on to explore in his influential works. In this seminar, Badiou offers a tour de force encounter with a lesser-known seventeenth-century philosopher and theologian, Nicolas Malebranche, a contemporary and peer of Spinoza and Leibniz.

“This book tackles Malebranche through Alain Badiou’s unique perspective. Badiou nicely translates questions of theology into questions of politics, bringing Malebranche a contemporary resonance that he doesn’t have in any other account.” —Todd McGowan, author of Emancipation After Hegel: Achieving a Contradictory Revolution

The seminar is at once a record of Badiou’s thought at a key moment in the years before the publication of his most important work, Being and Event, and a lively interrogation of Malebranche’s key text, the Treatise on Nature and Grace. Badiou develops a rigorous yet novel analysis of Malebranche’s theory of grace, retracing his claims regarding the nature of creation and the relation between God and world and between God and Jesus. Through Malebranche, Badiou develops a radical concept of truth and the subject. This book renders a seemingly obscure post-Cartesian philosopher fascinating and alive. It occupies a pivotal place in Badiou’s reflections on the nature of being that demonstrates the crucial role of theology in his thinking. ALAIN BADIOU

Morphing Intelligence

From IQ Measurement to Artificial Brains CATHERINE MALABOU Translated by Carolyn Shread WHY ART IF IC IAL INT E L L I G E N CE A N D N AT U R A L I N TEL L IGENC E AR EN ’ T S O D I FFE R E N T

What is intelligence? The concept crosses and blurs the boundaries between natural and artificial, bridging the human brain and the cybernetic world of AI. In this book, the acclaimed philosopher Catherine Malabou ventures a new approach that emphasizes the intertwined, networked relationships among the biological, the technological, and the symbolic.

Malabou traces the modern metamorphoses of intelligence, seeking to understand how neurobiological and neurotechnological advances have transformed our present-day view. She considers three crucial developments: the notion of intelligence as an empirical, genetically based quality measurable by standardized tests; the shift to the epigenetic paradigm, with its emphasis on neural plasticity; and the dawn of artificial intelligence, with its potential to simulate, replicate, and ultimately surpass the workings of the brain. Malabou concludes that a dialogue between human and cybernetic intelligence offers the best if not the only means to build a democratic future. A strikingly original exploration of our changing notions of intelligence and the human, Morphing Intelligence is an essential analysis of the porous border between symbolic and biological life at a time when once-clear distinctions between mind and machine have become uncertain. CATHERINE MALABOU

“In this remarkable book Catherine Malabou focuses on the transformations of ‘intelligence’ as it moves from genetics to epigenetics to automatism. Historically grounded, philosophically astute, and engagingly written, this book is highly recommended for anyone interested in intelligence—artificial and natural—and in contemporary configurations of what counts as human.” —N.

Nonbinary

Memoirs of Gender and Identity MICAH RAJUNOV AND SCOTT DUANE, EDITORS STO R I ES O F N AVI GATI N G GEN DERQ UEER LI VES I N A MERI CA

What happens when your gender doesn’t fit neatly into the categories of male or female? Even mundane interactions like filling out a form or using a public bathroom can be a struggle when these designations prove inadequate. In this groundbreaking book, thirty authors highlight how our experiences are shaped by a deeply entrenched gender binary.

“Nonbinary makes a profound contribution through an insistence upon increasing exposure to the concepts and lived experiences of contemporary queer people and ideas. This book will do amazing things. This is a vital queer theory textbook.” —K. W. Mott, Seton Hall University

“Nonbinary is a great book—timely, wide-ranging, interesting, readable, and relatable. This will be a great primer for parents, teachers, doctors, and anyone else who wants to understand the genderqueer community.” —Jen Manion, Amherst College

The powerful first-person narratives of this collection show us a world where gender exists along a spectrum, a web, a multidimensional space. Nuanced storytellers break away from mainstream portrayals of gender diversity, cutting across lines of age, race, ethnicity, ability, class, religion, family, and relationships. From Suzi, who wonders whether she’ll ever “feel” like a woman after living fifty years as a man, to Aubri, who grew up in a cash-strapped fundamentalist household, to Sand, who must reconcile the dual roles of trans advocate and therapist, the writers’ conceptions of gender are inextricably intertwined with broader systemic issues. Labeled gender outlaws, gender rebels, genderqueer, or simply human, the voices in Nonbinary illustrate what life could be if we allowed the rigid categories of “man” and “woman” to loosen and bend. They speak to everyone who has questioned gender or has paused to wonder, What does it mean to be a man or a woman—and why do we care so much? MICAH RAJUNOV

vocate. Since 2011, Micah has created community resources for nonbinary identities through the site genderqueer.me. Micah’s personal transition story has been featured in mainstream publications as well as a full-length documentary. SCOTT DUANE

Survive and Resist

The Definitive Guide to Dystopian Politics AMY L. ATCHISON AND SHAUNA L. SHAMES HOW DYSTOP IAS EXPL A I N T H E R E A L WO R L D

Authoritarianism is on the march—and so is dystopian fiction. In the brave new twenty-first century, young-adult titles like The Hunger Games and Divergent have become blockbusters; after Donald Trump’s election, two dystopian classics, 1984 and The Handmaid’s Tale, skyrocketed to the New York Times best-seller list. This should come as no surprise: dystopian fiction has a lot to say about the perils of terrible government in real life.

In Survive and Resist, Amy L. Atchison and Shauna L. Shames explore the ways in which dystopian narratives help explain how real-world politics work. They draw on classic and contemporary fiction, films, and TV shows—as well as their real-life counterparts—to offer funny and accessible explanations of key political concepts. Atchison and Shames demonstrate that dystopias both real and imagined help bring theories of governance, citizenship, and the state down to earth. They emphasize nonviolent resistance and change, exploring ways to challenge and overcome a dystopian-style government. Fictional examples, they argue, help give us the tools we need for individual survival and collective resistance. A clever look at the world through the lenses of pop culture, classic literature, and real-life events, Survive and Resist provides a timely and innovative approach to the fundamentals of politics for an era of creeping tyranny.

“It is truly rare to find a text that so deftly serves as an introduction to core political concepts and political resistance in a way that will resonate with activists and students alike. Survive and Resist shows us how to be intellectually engaged with but not discouraged by ideas that often seem too overwhelming to examine in moments of political despair. It does so in a way that is rigorous and disarming, morally serious and fun. A must-read.” —Alex Zamalin, author of Struggle on Their Minds: The Political Thought of African American Resistance

Time and the Generations

Population Ethics for a Diminishing Planet PARTHA DASGUPTA H OW MA N Y P EO P LE CA N O UR P LA N ET SUSTA I N ?

“What a book! Written with pellucid refinement and compelling responsibility, it incisively appraises humankind’s numbers in tandem with assessments of ecology, time, personal decisions, and varied social and economic circumstances. Composed at the frontiers of norms and methods, philosophy and economics, demography and social analysis, Time and the Generations offers a systematic and bracing homage to heterodox reason in the spirit of Ken Arrow.” —Ira Katznelson, Ruggles Professor of Political Science and History, Columbia University

How should we evaluate the ethics of procreation, especially the environmental consequences of reproductive decisions on future generations, in a resource-constrained world? While demographers, moral philosophers, and environmental scientists have separately discussed the implications of population size for sustainability, no one has attempted to synthesize these approaches. The culmination of a half century of engagement with population ethics, Partha Dasgupta’s masterful Time and the Generations blends economics, philosophy, and ecology to offer an original lens on the difficult topic of optimum global population.

With careful attention to global inequality and the imbalance of power between genders, Dasgupta provides tentative answers to two fundamental questions: What level of economic activity can our planet support over the long run, and what does the answer say about optimum population numbers? He develops a population ethics that can be used to evaluate our choices and guide our sense of a sustainable global population and living standards. Structured around a central essay from Dasgupta, the book also features a foreword from Robert Solow, incisive commentaries from Kenneth J. Arrow, Joseph Stiglitz, Eric Maskin, and Scott Barrett, and a joint paper with Aisha Dasgupta on inequalities in reproductive decisions and the idea of reproductive rights. Taken together, Time and the Generations represents a fascinating dialogue between world-renowned economists on a central issue of our time. PARTHA DASGUPTA

In this book, a team of sociologists presents a groundbreaking model of concepts and categorization that can guide sociological and cultural analysis of a wide variety of social situations. Drawing on research in various fields, including cognitive science, computational linguistics, and psychology, the book develops an innovative view of concepts. It argues that concepts have meanings that are probabilistic rather than sharp, occupying fuzzy, overlapping positions in a “conceptual space.” Measurements of distances in this space reveal our mental representations of categories. Using this model, important yet commonplace phenomena such as our routine buying decisions can be quantified in terms of the cognitive distance between concepts. This book illuminates how explicit attention to concepts and categories can give us a new understanding of everyday situations and interactions. MICHAEL T. HANNAN

Ten Years After the Crash

Financial Crises and Regulatory Responses SHARYN O’HALLORAN AND THOMAS GROLL, EDITORS A R ETROSP EC TI VE O N FI N A N C I A L REGULATI O N A N D W H ETHER WE’ LL AVO I D THE N EX T C RI SI S

The 2008 financial crash was the worst financial crisis and the most severe economic downturn since the Great Depression. It triggered a complete overhaul of the global regulatory environment, ushering in a stream of new rules and laws to combat the perceived weakness of the financial system. While the global economy came back from the brink, the continuing effects of the crisis include increasing economic inequality and political polarization.

“Ten Years After the Crash provides a timely, comprehensive, and insightful evaluation of the status of financial reforms ten years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008. The authors provide detailed assessments of reforms that have worked and those that have fallen short of their goals, drawing important lessons from the global financial crisis and its aftermath. Their analysis should be of great interest to the general public as well as academics and policy makers.” —Arthur Wilmarth, George Washington University

Ten Years After the Crash is an innovative analysis of the crisis and its ongoing influence on the global regulatory, financial, and political landscape, with timely discussions of the key issues for our economic future. It brings together a range of expert and practitioner perspectives, including the Nobel Prize winner Joseph Stiglitz, the former congressman Barney Frank, the former treasury secretary Jacob Lew, the former deputy governor of the Bank of England Paul Tucker, and Steve Cutler, general counsel of JP Morgan Chase during the financial crisis. Each poses crucial questions: What were the origins of the crisis? How effective were international and domestic regulatory responses? Have we addressed the roots of the crisis through reform and regulation? Are our financial systems and the global economy better able to withstand another crash? Ten Years After the Crash is vital reading as both a retrospective on the last crisis and analysis of possible sources of the next one. SHARYN O’HALLORAN

Dying for Rights

Putting North Korea’s Human Rights Abuses on the Record SANDRA FAHY AN AUT H OR ITAT IV E E XA M I N AT I O N O F CR I M E S AG A I N ST HU MANIT Y IN NORT H KO R E A

North Korea’s human rights violations are unparalleled in the contemporary world. In Dying for Rights, Sandra Fahy provides the definitive account of the abuses committed by the North Korean state, domestically and internationally, from its founding to the present.

Dying for Rights scrutinizes North Korea’s treatment of its own people as well as foreign nationals, how violations committed by the state spread into the international realm, and how North Korea uses its state media and presence at the United Nations. Fahy meticulously documents the extent of arbitrary detention, torture, executions, and the network of prison camps throughout the country. The book details systematic and widespread violations of freedom of speech and of movement, freedom from discrimination, and the rights to food and to life. Fahy weaves together public and private testimonies from North Koreans resettled abroad, as well as NGO reports, the stories and facts brought to light by the United Nations Commission of Inquiry into North Korea, and North Korea’s own state media, to share powerful personal narratives of human rights abuses. A compassionate yet objective investigation into the factors that sustain and perpetuate the flouting of basic rights, Dying for Rights reveals the profound culpability of the North Korean state in the systematic denial of human dignity. SANDRA FAHY

“The story of North Korean human rights abuses has been difficult to tell because so much of the problem remains shrouded by the state, with nameless and faceless victims. Fahy remedies this malady with a beautifully written and human story of human rights abuses in North Korea that takes us beyond hard-toobtain statistics.” —Victor Cha, ​​D.​​S.

Threatening Property

Race, Class, and Campaigns to Legislate Jim Crow Neighborhoods ELIZABETH A. HERBIN-TRIANT H OW CO MP ETI N G C LASS I N TERESTS SHA P ED THE I M PL EMEN TATI O N O F J I M C ROW

White supremacists determined what African Americans could do and where they could go in the Jim Crow South, but they were less successful in deciding where black people could live because different groups of white supremacists did not agree on the question of residential segregation. In Threatening Property, Elizabeth A. Herbin-Triant investigates early-twentieth-century campaigns for residential segregation laws in North Carolina to show how the version of white supremacy supported by middle-class white people differed from that supported by the elites.

“Herbin-Triant tackles a surprisingly neglected aspect of the Jim Crow

Herbin-Triant details the backlash against the economic successes of African Americans among middle-class whites, who claimed that they wished to protect property values and so campaigned for residential segregation laws both in the city and the countryside, where their actions were modeled on South Africa’s Natives Land Act. White elites blocked these efforts, primarily because it was against their financial interest to remove the black workers that they employed in their homes, farms, and factories. Herbin-Triant explores what the split over residential segregation laws reveals about competing versions of white supremacy and about the position of middling whites in a region dominated by elite planters and businessmen. An illuminating work of social and political history, Threatening Property puts class front and center in explaining conflict over the expansion of segregation laws into private property.

Banking on Freedom

Black Women in U.S. Finance Before the New Deal SHENNETTE GARRETT-SCOTT HOW AF R ICAN AM ER I CA N WO M E N S H A PE D FI N A N CE AND CAP ITAL IS M IN T H E U N I T E D STAT E S

Between 1888 and 1930, African Americans opened more than a hundred banks and thousands of other financial institutions. In Banking on Freedom, Shennette Garrett-Scott explores this rich period of black financial innovation and its transformative impact on U.S. capitalism through the story of the St. Luke Bank in Richmond, Virginia: the first and only bank run by black women.

Banking on Freedom offers an unparalleled account of how black women carved out economic, social, and political power in contexts shaped by sexism, white supremacy, and capitalist exploitation. Garrett-Scott chronicles both the bank’s success and the challenges this success wrought, including extralegal violence and aggressive oversight from state actors who saw black economic autonomy as a threat to both democratic capitalism and the social order. The teller cage and boardroom became sites of activism and resistance as the leadership of president Maggie Lena Walker and other women board members kept the bank grounded in meeting the needs of working-class black women. The first book to center black women’s engagement with the elite sectors of banking, finance, and insurance, Banking on Freedom reveals the ways gender, race, and class shaped the meanings of wealth and risk in U.S. capitalism and society. SHENNETTE GARRETT-SCOTT

“Recovering the important and active role black women have played in the development of modern American capitalism, Shennette Garrett-Scott’s Banking on Freedom is a paradigmshifting work that stands to make a monumental contribution to the field and is certain to inspire future generations of scholars.” —Tiffany Gill, University of Delaware

Black Utopia

The History of an Idea from Black Nationalism to Afrofuturism ALEX ZAMALIN T H E BLAC K A RTI STS A N D WRI TERS WHO I MAGI N ED A N E W DREA M O F DEMO C RACY

Within the history of African American struggle against racist oppression that often verges on dystopia, a hidden tradition has depicted a transfigured world. Daring to speculate on a future beyond white supremacy, black utopian artists and thinkers offer powerful visions of ways of being that are built on radical concepts of justice and freedom. They imagine a new black citizen in a world that soars above all existing notions of the possible.

In Black Utopia, Alex Zamalin offers a groundbreaking examination of African American visions of social transformation and their counterutopian counterparts. Considering figures associated with racial separatism, postracialism, anticolonialism, Pan-Africanism, and Afrofuturism, he argues that the black utopian tradition continues to challenge American political thought and culture. Black Utopia spans black-nationalist visions of an ideal Africa, the fiction of W. E. B. Du Bois, and Sun Ra’s cosmic mythology of alien abduction. Zamalin casts Samuel R. Delany and Octavia E. Butler as political theorists and reflects on the antiutopian challenges of George S. Schuyler and Richard Wright. Their thought proves that utopianism, rather than being politically immature or dangerous, can invigorate political imagination. Both an inspiring intellectual history and a critique of present power relations, this book suggests that, with democracy under siege across the globe, the black utopian tradition may be our best hope for combating injustice.

“Alex Zamalin balances generosity and critique in a careful yet energetic and buoyant manner.” —Joseph Winters, author of Hope Draped in Black: Race, Melancholy, and the Agony of Progress

A Time for Critique

DIDIER FASSIN AND BERNARD E. HARCOURT, EDITORS IS CRITIQUE STILL RELEVANT IN A POPULIST WORLD?

In a world of political upheaval, rising inequality, catastrophic climate change, and widespread doubt of even the most authoritative sources of information, is there a place for critique? This book calls for a systematic reappraisal of critical thinking—its assumptions, its practices, its genealogy, its predicament—following the principle that critique can only start with self-critique.

In A Time for Critique, Didier Fassin, Bernard E. Harcourt, and a group of eminent political theorists, anthropologists, sociologists, philosophers, and literary and legal scholars reflect on the multiplying contexts and forms of critical discourses and on the social actors and social movements engaged in them. How can one maintain sufficient distance from the eventful present without doing it an injustice? How can one avoid the disconnection between theory and action? How can critique be both public and collective? These provocative questions are addressed by revisiting the works of Foucault and Arendt, Said and Césaire, Benjamin and Du Bois, but they are also given substance through case studies of subaltern criticism in Palestine, emancipatory mobilizations in Syria, the antitorture campaigns of Sri Lankan activists, and the abolitionism of the African American critical resistance and undercommons movements in the United States.

Notes to Literature

Subaltern Social Groups

Combined edition

A Critical Edition of Prison Notebook 25

THEODOR W. ADORNO

ANTONIO GRAMSCI

Edited by Rolf Tiedemann. Translated by Shierry Weber Nicholson. With a new introduction by Paul Kottman

Edited and translated by Joseph A. Buttigieg and

“Notes to Literature . . . sets an inimitable, always exhilarating standard. A volume of Adorno’s essays is equivalent to a whole shelf of books on literature.” —Susan Sontag

Notes to Literature is a collection of Adorno’s essays on such writers as Goethe, Mann, and Benjamin, as well as reflections on a variety of other subjects. This edition presents this classic work in full in a single volume. “Eccentric, brilliant, unreadably readable, aphoristic, and gnomic in the extreme, Adorno’s Notes to Literature stand by themselves as essays of genius. They are not simply criticism, they are literature.”

A core concept of Antonio Gramsci’s intellectual legacy is subalternity. Among his prison notebooks, Gramsci devoted a single notebook to the theme of subaltern social groups. This volume presents the first complete translation of Notebook 25 along with Gramsci’s first draft, related notes on subaltern groups, and an extensive critical apparatus. ANTONIO GRAMSCI

(1891–1937) was an Italian Marxist

theorist, one-time leader of the Italian Communist Party, and founder of the official Party newspaper, l’Unita. Arrested and imprisoned by the Italian Fascist regime in 1926, Gramsci died before fully regaining his freedom. JOSEPH A. BUTTIGIEG

The Perils of the One STATHIS GOURGOURIS

A CH AL L ENGING C R I T I Q U E O F R E D U CT I O N I ST T H I N K IN G

From the earliest times, societies have been seduced by the temptation of unitary thinking. Recognizing the vulnerability of existence, people and cultures privilege regimes that confer authority on a single entity, a sovereign ruler or a transcendental deity, which they embrace with unquestioned devotion. Such obsessions precipitate contempt for the worldliness of real bodies in real time and refusal of responsibility and agency.

In The Perils of the One, Stathis Gourgouris offers a philosophical anthropology that confronts the legacy of “monarchical thinking”: the desire to subjugate oneself to unitary principles and structures, whether political or moral, theological or secular. In wideranging essays that are at once poetic and polemical, intellectual and passionate, Gourgouris reads across politics and theology, literary and art criticism, psychoanalysis and feminism in a critique of both political theology and the metaphysics of secularism. He engages with a range of figures from the Apostle Paul and Trinitarian theologians, to Schmitt and Freud, to contemporary thinkers such as Pierre Clastres, Edward Said, Slavoj Žižek, Judith Butler, and Luce Irigaray. At once a broad perspective on human history and a detailed examination of our present moment, The Perils of the One offers glimpses of what a counterpolitics of autonomy would look like from anarchic subjectivities that refuse external ideals, resist the allure of obedience, and embrace otherness. © SONA GOURGOURIS

STATHIS GOURGOURIS

“The Perils of the One is an exhilarating volume, an extended and variegated exercise in ‘secular criticism’ grounded on a deep erudition and poetic sensibility. This book is much more than an engagement with thinkers and scholars; it is a rich, exemplary reflection on the meaning of criticism and politics.” —Gil Anidjar, author of Blood: A Critique of Christianity

Designing Experiences J. ROBERT ROSSMAN AND MATHEW D. DUERDEN A N I NTRO DUC TI O N TO THE P RI N C I P LES O F E X PE R I EN C E DESI GN

In an increasingly experience-driven economy, companies that deliver great experiences thrive, and those that do not die. Yet many organizations face difficulties implementing a vision of delivering experiences beyond the provision of goods and services while students and aspiring professionals struggle to piece together the principles of experience design from disparate, often disconnected disciplines and approaches.

“Designing Experiences provides a much-needed evolution in the delivery and execution of programs, services, products, and experiences. Rossman and Duerden present a contemporary approach to experience design, journey mapping, and design thinking that helps us understand the complexity of designing experiences.” —William W. Hendricks, professor and department head, Experience Industry Management Department, California Polytechnic State University

J. Robert Rossman and Mathew D. Duerden present a comprehensive and accessible introduction to experience design. They synthesize the fundamental theories and methods from multiple disciplines and lay out a process for designing experiences from start to finish. Rossman and Duerden challenge us to reflect on what makes a great experience from the user’s perspective, drawing attention to both the macro and micro levels. They present interdisciplinary research underlying key concepts such as memory, intentionality, and dramatic structure in a down-to-earth style. Designing Experiences features detailed instructions and numerous real-world examples that clarify theoretical principles, making it useful for students and professionals. An invaluable overview of a growing field, the book provides readers with the tools they need to design innovative and indelible experiences.

Designing for Growth: A Design Thinking Tool Kit for Managers (D4G) showed how organizations can use design thinking to boost innovation and drive growth. This updated and expanded companion guide is a stand-alone project workbook that provides a step-by-step framework for applying the D4G tool kit and process to a particular project, systematically explaining how to address the four key questions of the design thinking approach. In the field book, Jeanne Liedtka, Tim Ogilvie, and Rachel Brozenske guide readers through the design process with reminders of key D4G takeaways as they progress. Readers learn to identify an opportunity, draft a design brief, conduct research, establish design criteria, brainstorm, develop concepts, create napkin pitches, make prototypes, solicit feedback from stakeholders, and run learning launches. This second edition is suitable for projects in business, nonprofit, and government contexts, with all-new tools, practical advice, and facilitation tips. A new introduction discusses the relationship between strategy and design thinking. JEANNE LIEDTKA

Praise for Designing for Growth: “By treating management as a design process, managers can create systems that have quality built in rather than simply offering rules and guidelines for employees to follow.

The Caring Heirs of Doctor Samuel Bard

Profiles of Selected Distinguished Graduates of Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons PETER WORTSMAN A W H O ’ S WHO O F CO LUMB I A- EDUCATED DO C TO RS

The alumni of Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons (VP&S) have made remarkable strides in medicine, academia, public health, and industry. In this they follow in the footsteps of Samuel Bard (1742–1821), a prominent early American physician and a founder of what would become VP&S. In The Caring Heirs of Doctor Samuel Bard, Peter Wortsman offers a selection of profiles of Columbia-educated doctors who have made a fundamental difference in the lives of others.

“In these profiles of some of

The physicians profiled in this book represent the complete spectrum of MDs. They have charted new fields of medicine, discovered the causes and cures of diseases, developed vaccines, pioneered surgical procedures, helped halt epidemics, and cared for imperiled populations. Some have run hospitals, medical schools, universities, the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and major pharmaceutical concerns. Others practiced at the White House, climbed mountains, or flew to outer space. Still others wrote pioneering papers, prize-winning books, and best-selling novels. In each case, the clinical training, scientific thoroughness, and humanistic values inculcated at Columbia had a formative influence on their thinking and practice. In telling their stories, The Caring Heirs of Doctor Samuel Bard offers readers a rare insight into the heart and soul of American medicine at its best.

America’s most notable, influential, and fascinating MDs, Peter Wortsman merges social history, theory of the professions, and an intimate local cultural anthropology of Columbia University’s medical center. Our Columbian history provides a microcosm of the history of medicine writ large, showing the interweaving of clinical practice and basic science breakthroughs. The Caring Heirs of Doctor Samuel Bard will be an inestimable resource for all interested in medicine and its interface with society.” —Rita Charon, professor and chair of medical humanities and ethics and executive director of Columbia Narrative Medicine

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

His deep knowledge makes this the most thorough guide to the movement yet.” —New York Magazine

During the 2016 election, a new term entered the American political lexicon: “alt-right.” George Hawley explains the movement’s origins, evolution, methods, and core belief in white-identity politics. Through exclusive interviews and a careful study of the alt-right’s influential texts, Hawley is able to paint a full picture of a movement whose overt racism has confounded expectations for a more tolerant America. Hawley makes a case for coming to a precise understanding of its beliefs without downplaying its radicalism. “A good, short primer to help understand the political forces responsible for Charlottesville (and the election of Donald Trump).” —Hollywood Reporter GEORGE HAWLEY

—Los Angeles Review of Books

In this book, E. Fuller Torrey draws on cutting-edge neuroscience research to propose a startling answer to the ultimate question. He locates the origin of gods within the human brain, arguing that religious belief is a by-product of evolution. Providing clear and accessible explanations of evolutionary neuroscience, Evolving Brains, Emerging Gods sheds new light on the mechanics of our deepest mysteries.

In The Theory That Changed Everything, the renowned cognitive scientist Philip Lieberman demonstrates that there is still no better guide to the world’s living things than Charles Darwin. With conversational clarity and memorable examples, Lieberman relates the insights that led to groundbreaking discoveries in both Darwin’s time and our own while asking provocative questions about what Darwin would have made of controversial issues today, such as GMOs, endangered species, and the God question.

A History of New York City’s Upper Class and the Making of a Metropolis

EDITORS

CLIFTON HOOD

“These essays combine chronological breadth,

“In Pursuit of Privilege is at its best as metropolitan

analytical depth, and geographic scope, linking the

history, assiduously researched, reminding us not

micro and macro, the local and the global. Essential

only of New York’s astonishing accomplishments but

also of its inglorious past.”

—Thomas J. Sugrue, New York University

—Wall Street Journal

What does it mean to make capitalism a subject of historical inquiry? And how does a focus on capitalism change our understanding of American history? This book offers essays from the forefront of the new history of capitalism. American Capitalism presents a sampling of cutting-edge research from prominent scholars that demonstrates the breadth and scope of this vital area of inquiry.

In Pursuit of Privilege recounts upper-class New Yorkers’ struggle to create a world guarded against outsiders, even as economic growth and democratic opportunity enabled aspirants to gain entrance. Clifton Hood describes famous and infamous characters from the elite families and wealthy tycoons of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to the Wall Street executives of today.

Gnosticism is a countercultural spirituality that forever changed the practice of Christianity. In The Gnostic New Age, April D. DeConick recovers this vibrant underground history. Her work emphasizes the universal, countercultural appeal of a movement that embodies much more than a simple challenge to religious authority. APRIL D. D e CONICK

In this ethnography, Jonathan Bach examines the afterlife of East Germany following the fall of the Berlin Wall as things and places from that vanished socialist past continue to circulate and shape the politics of memory. What Remains traces the unsettling effects of these unmoored artifacts on the German present. It argues for a rethinking of the role of the everyday as a site of reckoning with difficult pasts. “A remarkable in-depth discussion.”

Global Alert

The Rationality of Modern Islamist Terrorism and the Challenge to the Liberal Democratic World BOAZ GANOR “I highly recommend that anyone interested in the subject of combating the plague of terrorism today read Ganor’s short but punchy book.”

The Politics of Anti-Westernism in Asia Visions of World Order in Pan-Islamic and Pan-Asian Thought CEMIL AYDIN “[Aydin] has a sure grasp of what is fundamental and what is merely of the moment.” —Foreign Affairs

—Jerusalem Post

Global Alert anatomizes the rationale behind modern terrorism. It draws a distinct picture of its root and instrumental causes and plots the different stages of a terrorist attack, from indoctrination and recruitment to planning, preparation, and launch. Boaz Ganor advances an international doctrine for governing military operations between state and nonstate actors as part of a new type of armed conflict termed “multidimensional warfare.” BOAZ GANOR

is the founder and executive director of

the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (IICT), the Ronald Lauder Chair for Counter-Terrorism, and the dean of the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy, and Strategy at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya.

In this rich intellectual history, Cemil Aydin challenges the notion that anti-Westernism in the Muslim world is a reaction to the liberal and democratic values of the West. Aydin compares Ottoman Pan-Islamic and Japanese Pan-Asian visions of world order from the middle of the nineteenth century to the end of World War II. He offers a global perspective on how religious tradition and the experience of European colonialism interacted with discontent with globalization and modernization. “[A]n impressive work.” —Journal of Global History CEMIL AYDIN

Who are the new Chinese intellectuals? In the wake of the crackdown on the 1989 democracy movement and the rapid marketization of the 1990s, a novel type of grassroots intellectual emerged. They derive legitimacy from their work with the vulnerable and the marginalized. They are proudly minjian—unofficial, unaffiliated, and among the people.

Xiang Kairan, who wrote under the pen name “The Unworthy Scholar from Pingjiang,” is remembered as the father of modern Chinese martial arts fiction. In this book, John Christopher Hamm shows how Xiang Kairan’s work and career offer a new lens on the transformations of fiction and popular culture in early-twentieth-century China.

Readings of Śāntideva’s Guide to Bodhisattva Practice

JONATHAN C. GOLD AND DOUGLAS S. DUCKWORTH, EDITORS

“The essays contain the richness of classical Buddhist writing and showcase the latest trends in Buddhist studies. This is an excellent volume and a rare one at that.” —Jacob P. Dalton, author of The Gathering of Intentions: A History of a Tibetan Tantra

Śāntideva’s eighth-century Guide to Bodhisattva Practice (Bodhicaryāvatāra), is one of the crucial texts of the Buddhist ethical and philosophical tradition. This book serves as a companion to this Indian Buddhist classic. Distinguished scholars discuss its historical significance, illuminate the roles it played in shaping Buddhism in Tibet, and bring to light its contemporary significance. JONATHAN C. GOLD

Compiled in China in the fourth–third centuries BCE, The Book of Lord Shang argues for a new powerful government. In Yuri Pines’s translation, the text’s intellectual boldness and surprisingly modern-seeming ideas shine through, underscoring Shang’s contribution to global political thought. This abridged and revised edition of Pines’s annotated translation is ideal for newcomers to the book while also guiding early Chinese scholars and comparatists. It highlights the text’s influence on political thought and practice. “This is sure to be the standard translation for decades to come.” —Paul R. Goldin, author of Confucianism SHANG YANG

(d. 338 BCE) was a Chinese statesman

and reformer active during the Warring States Period.

—Xiaolong Wu, author of Material Culture, Power, and Identity in Ancient China

Among hundreds of thousands of ancient graves and tombs excavated to date in China, the Mancheng site stands out for its unparalleled complexity and richness. Modeling Peace interprets Western Han royal burial as a political ideology by closely reading the architecture and funerary content of this site and situating it in the historical context of imperialization in Western Han China. Jie Shi demonstrates that the Mancheng site was planned and designed as a unity of religious, gender, and intercultural concerns. This book is the first scholarly monograph on an undisturbed and fully excavated early-Chinese royal burial site. JIE SHI

The site of Anyang, the last capital of the Shang dynasty, dated to around 1200 to 1000 BCE, is one of the most important sources of knowledge about craft production in Bronze Age China. Kingly Crafts provides a detailed picture of craft production in Anyang and paves the way for a new understanding of how the Shang capital functioned as a metropolis. Yung-ti Li demonstrates that it is necessary to study workshop remains and their archaeological context to reconstruct the social and political contexts of craft production. YUNG-TI LI

“Saha has given us a thought-provoking, incisive, elegant, and necessary work wherein she recasts and regenerates postcolonial criticism. This book is well written, beautifully researched, creative, and politically vital.” —Erin Manning, author of Politics of Touch: Sense, Movement, Sovereignty

Poulomi Saha offers an innovative account of women’s political labor in East Bengal over more than a century. She argues that women have articulated—in writing, in political action, in stitching—their own desires in their own terms. They produce narratives beyond women’s empowerment and independence as global and national projects; they refuse critical pronouncements of their own subjugation. Through a material account of text and textile, An Empire of Touch crafts a new narrative of gendered political labor under empire. POULOMI SAHA

Women Mobilizing Memory, a transnational exploration of the intersection of feminism, history, and memory, shows how the recollection of violent histories can generate possibilities for progressive futures.

HISTORY

The Making of a Periphery

Beauty in the Age of Empire

How Island Southeast Asia Became a Mass Exporter of Labor

Japan, Egypt, and the Global History of Aesthetic Education

ULBE BOSMA

RAJA ADAL

Today, the Philippines, Indonesia, and Malaysia are primarily exporters of their surplus of cheap labor, with more than ten million emigrants from the region working all over the world. How did a prosperous region become a peripheral one? Ulbe Bosma draws on new archival sources from the colonial period to the present to demonstrate how high demographic growth and a long history of bonded labor relegated Southeast Asia to the margins of the global economy. A wide-ranging comparative study of colonial commodity production and labor regimes, The Making of a Periphery is of major significance to international economic history, colonial and postcolonial history, and Southeast Asian history.

Why did art education become a core feature of schooling in societies as distant as Japan and Egypt, and how is aesthetics entangled with nationalism, colonialism, and empire? Beauty in the Age of Empire is a global history of aesthetic education focused on how Western practices were adopted, transformed, and repurposed in Egypt and Japan. Raja Adal uncovers the emergence of aesthetic education in modern schools and its role in making ideologies from fascism to humanism attractive. Spanning multiple languages, continents, and the histories of nationalism, art, education, and transnational exchanges, Beauty in the Age of Empire offers a strikingly original account of the rise of aesthetics in modern schools and the modern world.

HISTORY

Amboina, 1623

Fear and Conspiracy on the Edge of Empire ADAM CLULOW

In 1623, a Japanese mercenary called Shichizō was arrested for asking suspicious questions about a Dutch East India Company castle on Amboina, a remote set of islands in what is now eastern Indonesia. He was tortured until he confessed that he had joined a plot orchestrated by a group of English merchants. Two weeks later, Dutch authorities executed twenty-one alleged conspirators, sparking a controversy that would endure for centuries.

In this landmark study, Adam Clulow presents a new perspective on the Amboina case that aims to move beyond the debate over guilt or innocence. Based on a detailed analysis of archival records, letters, and contemporary legal documents, Amboina, 1623 is a masterful reinterpretation of a trial that has divided opinion for centuries. ADAM CLULOW

is an associate professor at Monash

University. He is the author of the prize-winning The Company and the Shogun: The Dutch Encounter with Tokugawa Japan (Columbia, 2014) and the creator of the Amboyna Conspiracy Trial website.

Robert Culp explores the largest and most influential publishing companies of the late Qing and Republican periods and into the early years of the People’s Republic to offer a new perspective on modern China’s cultural transformations. Examining the distinct Chinese modes of industrial publishing, Culp explains the emergence of the modern Chinese intellectual through commercial and industrial processes rather than through political revolution and social movements. An original account of Chinese intellectual and cultural history as well as global book history, The Power of Print in Modern China offers new perspectives on the production of new forms of knowledge and culture in the twentieth century.

In cities awakening to global exchange under European imperial rule, Muslims encountered all sorts of strange and wonderful new things—toothbrushes, toilet paper, telegraphs, railways, brimmed hats, tailored pants, and lottery tickets. Leor Halevi tells the story of the Islamic trials of technological and commercial novelties. He focuses on an entrepreneurial interpreter of the shari‘a named Rashid Rida, who preached that by rediscovering Islam’s foundational spirit, Muslims would realize modernity’s promises.

In this book, Patton E. Burchett offers a path-breaking genealogical study of devotional (bhakti) Hinduism that traces its understudied historical relationships with tantra, yoga, and Sufism. Beginning in India’s early-medieval “Tantric Age” and reaching to the present day, Burchett focuses his analysis on the crucial shifts of the early modern period, when the rise of bhakti communities in North India transformed the religious landscape in ways that would profoundly affect the shape of modern-day Hinduism.

After the fall of the Qing empire, Buddhist monks in the Mongolian frontiers of the Soviet Union and Republican China faced a chaotic and increasingly uncertain world. Matthew King tells the story of one Mongolian monk’s efforts to defend Buddhist monasticism in revolutionary times. He takes up the perspective of the polymath Zawa Damdin (1867–1937), a historian, mystic, logician, and pilgrim.

Islamic scriptural sources offer potentially radical notions of equality. Yet medieval Islamic philosophers chose to establish hierarchical, male-centered virtue ethics. Zahra Ayubi rethinks the tradition of Islamic philosophical ethics from a feminist critical perspective. She calls for a philosophical turn in the study of gender in Islam based on resources for gender equality that are unlocked by feminist engagement with the Islamic ethical tradition. Gendered Morality offers a vital and disruptive new perspective on patriarchal Islamic ethics and metaphysics, showing the ways in which the philosophical tradition can support the aims of gender justice and human flourishing.

Living with Hate in American Politics and Religion

How Popular Culture Can Defuse Intractable Differences JEFFREY ISRAEL Foreword by Martha C. Nussbaum.

“Reality might fall short of the ideal, but Jeffrey Israel does not. Living with Hate in American Politics and Religion is so wonderfully fluid that it feels as though Israel is reading a scholarly bedtime story.” —Martin Kavka, author of Jewish Messianism and the History of Philosophy

Jeffrey Israel offers an innovative argument for the power of playfulness in popular culture to enable people from different backgrounds to pursue justice together, even as they play with their divisive grudges, prejudices, and desires in their cultural lives. In provocative readings of Lenny Bruce’s stand-up comedy, Philip Roth’s Portnoy’s Complaint, and Norman Lear’s All in the Family, Israel argues that postwar Jewish American popular culture offers potent and useful examples of playing with fraught emotions.

The Future of Catholicism in America

PATRICIA O’CONNELL KILLEN AND MARK SILK, EDITORS

“This volume offers indispensable resources for reimagining a post-subcultural future for Catholics.” —William L. Portier, University of Dayton, author of Divided Friends

This volume considers Catholicism’s prospects at a pivotal moment. Scholars from sociology, theology, religious studies, and history look at the church’s evolving institutional structure, its increasing ethnic diversity, and its changing public presence. They explore the tensions among members of the hierarchy, between clergy and laity, and along lines of ethnicity, immigration status, class, generation, political affiliation, and degree of religious commitment.

Jacob Edmond explores how poetry is increasingly made from other texts through sampling, appropriation, translation, and other forms of repetition, as opposed to privileging “innovative” or “original” works. He illuminates the common form that unites a diverse range of writers from dub poets to conceptualists, samizdat wordsmiths to Twitter-trolling provocateurs. Make It the Same transforms global literary history, showing how the old hierarchies of original and derivative, center and periphery are overturned when we recognize copying as the engine of literary change.

Gertrude Stein described romance as “the outside thing, that . . . is always a thing to be felt inside.” Hannah Roche takes Stein’s definition as a principle for the reinterpretation of three major modern lesbian writers, showing how literary and affective romance played a crucial yet overlooked role in the works of Stein, Radclyffe Hall, and Djuna Barnes. Lesbian writers boldly adopted and adapted the romance genre, Roche argues, as a means of staking a queer claim on a heteronormative institution. The Outside Thing is a significant rethinking of the interconnections between queer writing, lesbian living, and literary modernism. HANNAH ROCHE

FILM STUDIES

Hollywood’s Dirtiest Secret

The Hidden Environmental Costs of the Movies HUNTER VAUGHAN

In an era when many businesses have come under scrutiny for their environmental impact, the film industry has for the most part escaped criticism and regulation. Its practices are more diffuse; its final product, less tangible; and Hollywood has adopted public-relations strategies that portray it as environmentally conscious. In Hollywood’s Dirtiest Secret, Hunter Vaughan offers a new history of the movies from an environmental perspective, arguing that how we make and consume films has serious ecological consequences.

“In Vaughan’s deft readings of multiple films and their productive apparatuses, film theory and analysis also become updated into a cutting-edge discipline. Hollywood’s Dirtiest Secret is an essential book in ecocinema and ecomedia studies and an important contribution to ecomaterialism within cultural studies more broadly.” —Adrian Ivakhiv, author of Ecologies of the Moving Image: Cinema, Affect, Nature

Bringing together environmental humanities, science communication, and social ethics, Hollywood’s Dirtiest Secret is a pathbreaking consideration of the film industry’s environmental impact that examines how our cultural prioritization of spectacle has distracted us from its material consequences and natural-resource use. Vaughan examines the environmental effects of filmmaking from Hollywood classics to the digital era, considering how popular screen media shapes, and reflects, our understanding of the natural world. He recounts the production histories of major blockbusters—Gone with the Wind, Singin’ in the Rain, Twister, and Avatar—situating them in the contexts of the development of the film industry, popular environmentalism, and the proliferation of digital technologies. Emphasizing the materiality of media, Vaughan interweaves details of the hidden environmental consequences of specific filmmaking practices, from water use to server farms, within a larger critical portrait of social perceptions and valuations of the natural world.

Mormons and the Unfinished Business of American Secularism

At the turn of the twentieth century, Jesus was constantly and inventively visualized across media, especially in the new medium of film. Why, in an era traditionally defined by the triumph of secular ideologies and institutions, were so many artists rushing to film Christ’s miracles? In The Disappearing Christ, Phillip Maciak examines filmic depictions of Jesus to argue that cinema developed as a model technology of secularism, training viewers for belief in a secular age.

Color, Cinema, and Media of the 1920s

Displaying the Moving Image, 1926–1942

SARAH STREET AND JOSHUA YUMIBE

ARIEL ROGERS

Sarah Street and Joshua Yumibe provide a revelatory history of how the use of color in film during the 1920s led the way in creating a chromatically vibrant culture. Focusing on the final decade of silent film, Street and Yumibe portray the 1920s as a pivotal and profoundly chromatic period of cosmopolitan exchange, collaboration, and experimentation in and around cinema. A comprehensive, comparative study that situates film among developments in art, color science, and industry, Chromatic Modernity reveals the role of color cinema in forging new ways of looking at and experiencing the modern world.

Ariel Rogers rethinks the history of moving images by exploring how experiments with screen technologies in and around the 1930s changed the way films were produced, exhibited, and experienced. She reveals the role screens played within spaces including studio soundstages, theaters, homes, stores, and train stations. On the Screen challenges conventional narratives about the novelty of the twenty-first-century multiscreen environment, showing how the variety of historical screen practices opens up new ways to understand contemporary media.

Michel Chion’s landmark Audio-Vision has exerted significant influence on our understanding of sound-image relations since its original publication in 1994. Chion argues that sound film qualitatively produces a new form of perception. We don’t see images and hear sounds separately—we audio-view a trans-sensory whole. In this updated and expanded edition, Chion considers many additional examples from recent world cinema and formulates new questions for the contemporary media environment. MICHEL CHION

—Tom Schatz, University of Texas at Austin

Suburban Fantastic Cinema is a study of American movies in which preteen and teenage boys are called upon to combat a disruptive force—aliens, ghosts, vampires, demons, and more. Beginning in the 1980s with Poltergeist and E.T., the suburban fantastic established itself as a popular commercial model combining coming-ofage melodramas with elements drawn from science fiction, fantasy, and horror. This study discusses key examples of this subgenre, such as Gremlins (1984), Back to the Future (1985), and Jumanji (1995), as well as its resurgence in Stranger Things (2016–) and It (2017).

Twenty-First-Century Hollywood looks into the contexts of studio film production in the new century in order to understand what shapes the style and content of present-day cinema. In an era dominated in box-office terms by the franchise and the family film, this book illustrates why these kinds of movies are favored in the contemporary climate by producers and audiences alike. Neil Archer critically explores the narrative and aesthetic strategies at work in Hollywood’s most high-profile films, from the Harry Potter franchise, to Marvel’s Cinematic Universe to The Lego Movie.

Why Rebel Groups Recruit Women for War

Trafficking and Terrorism in Central Asia LAWRENCE P. MARKOWITZ

Women have played a significant active role in many contemporary armed rebellions. Reed M. Wood explains why some rebel groups deploy women in combat while others exclude women from their ranks and the strategic implication of this decision. He finds that drawing on women increases the pool of available recruits, and images of women combatants help raise a group’s visibility, boost local recruitment, and aid efforts to solicit support from diaspora communities. However, religiousfundamentalist rebels consistently resist using female fighters. A rich, data-driven study, Female Fighters presents a systematic, comprehensive analysis of the impact women’s participation has on organized political violence in the modern era. REED M. WOOD

is associate professor in the School of

Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University.

Counterterrorism experts and policy makers have warned of the peril posed by the connections between violent extremism and organized crime. Yet Central Asia, the site of extensive opium trafficking, sees low levels of terrorist violence. Webs of Corruption is an innovative study demonstrating that terrorist and criminal activity intersect more narrowly than is widely believed—and that the state plays the pivotal role in shaping those interconnections. Mariya Y. Omelicheva and Lawrence P. Markowitz analyze the linkages between the drug trade and terrorism financing in Central Asia, finding that state security services shape the nexus of trafficking and terrorism. MARIYA Y. OMELICHEVA

Allies of Convenience

A Theory of Bargaining in U.S. Foreign Policy EVAN N. RESNICK

“There is no other book that deals with alliances of convenience per se and certainly not one that deftly combines theory, history, and policy import. This

Yvonne Chiu offers a new understanding of why and how enemies work together to constrain violence in warfare. Chiu argues that what she calls an ethic of cooperation is found in modern warfare to such an extent that it is often taken for granted. The importance of cooperation becomes especially clear when wartime ethics reach a gray area: To whom should the laws of war apply? Who qualifies as a combatant? Should guerrillas or terrorists receive protections? In a wide-ranging consideration of pivotal instances of cooperation, Conspiring with the Enemy examines weapons bans, treatment of prisoners of war, and the Geneva Conventions, as well as the tensions between the ethic of cooperation and the pillars of just-war theory.

Since its founding, the United States has allied with unsavory regimes and dictatorships to thwart even more urgent security threats. Evan N. Resnick examines the negotiating tables between the United States and its allies of convenience since World War II and sets forth a novel theory of alliance bargaining. Resnick’s neoclassical realist theory explains why U.S. leaders negotiate less effectively with unfriendly autocratic states than with friendly liberal ones.

—Sharece Thrower, Vanderbilt University

—Dan Palazzolo, University of Richmond

Conventional wisdom holds that legislators who bring “pork”—federal funds for local projects—back home to their districts go a long way toward fending off potential challengers. Andrew H. Sidman offers a systematic explanation for how political polarization affects the electoral influence of district-level federal spending. During periods of low polarization, pork spending has little impact, but when polarization is high, it affects primary competition, campaign spending, and vote share in general elections. Pork Barrel Politics is an empirically rich account of the surprising repercussions of bringing pork home, with important consequences in our polarized era. ANDREW H. SIDMAN

Can presidents influence whether Congress enacts their agenda? Most research on presidential-congressional relations suggests that presidents have little if any influence on Congress. Instead, structural factors like party control largely determine the fate of the president’s legislative agenda. In The President on Capitol Hill, Jeffrey E. Cohen challenges this conventional view, arguing that existing research has underestimated the president’s power to sway Congress and developing a new theory of presidential influence. JEFFREY E.

The Italian philosopher Maurizio Lazzarato has earned international acclaim for his analysis of contemporary capitalism, in particular his influential concept of immaterial labor and his perceptive writings on debt.

In The Experience of Injustice, Emmanuel Renault brings together political theory, critical social science, and a keen sense of the power of popular movements to offer a powerful vision of social justice. Inspired by Axel Honneth, Renault argues that a radicalized version of Honneth’s ethics of recognition can provide a systematic alternative to the liberal-democratic projects of such thinkers as Rawls and Habermas.

This book explores the distinctive ways in which twentieth-century and contemporary continental thinkers have engaged with poetry and its contribution to philosophical meaning making, challenging us to rethink how philosophy has been changed through its encounters with poetry. RANJAN GHOSH

The Habermas-Rawls Debate JAMES GORDON FINLAYSON

“This will certainly be the go-to resource on this debate for anyone studying social or political philosophy in the future. Finlayson is the world’s foremost expert on the Habermas-Rawls exchange. After reading this book, I’m not sure if there is anything left to be said on the topic; it’s all here.” —Joseph Heath, author of Communicative Action and Rational Choice

In the 1990s, Jürgen Habermas and John Rawls had a famous exchange in the Journal of Philosophy. In this book, James Gordon Finlayson examines the Habermas-Rawls debate in context and considers its wider implications. He traces their dispute from its inception in their earliest works to the 1995 exchange and its aftermath, as well as its legacy in contemporary debates. The Habermas-Rawls Debate is an authoritative account of the crucial intersection of two major political theorists and an explication of why their dispute continues to matter.

The concept of contingency, the realm of chance, change, and the unnecessary, has been deployed to show that all institutions and ideas could have been otherwise as a critique of the status quo. Liane Carlson historicizes contingency by tying it to its theological and etymological roots in “touch,” contending that much of its critical, disruptive power is specific to our current moment. A strikingly original reconsideration of one of continental philosophy and critical theory’s most cherished concepts, this book reveals the limits of historicist accounts. LIANE CARLSON

modern Arab world, Kassab gives intellectual and cultural context to new Arab movements.” —Orit Bashkin, author of The Other Iraq

During the two decades that preceded the 2011 revolutions in Egypt and Syria, animated debates took place in Cairo and Damascus on how to understand “enlightenment” and its meaning for political and social goals. Elizabeth Suzanne Kassab offers a groundbreaking analysis of these debates and their import for the 2011 uprisings. Enlightenment on the Eve of Revolution is the first book to document these debates for the Anglophone audience and to analyze their importance for contemporary Egyptian and Syrian intellectual life and politics.

To Fulfill These Rights offers a historically informed sociological account of the struggles over affirmative action and open admissions in higher education. Through case studies of policy retrenchment at public universities, Amaka Okechukwu documents the protracted—but not always successful—rollback of inclusive policies in the context of shifting race and class politics.

He analyzes the tensions between the museum as a space of exploration of the collections and as a culture heavily invested in self-protection from the outside world, considering the ethos of curators and scholars over the transition from Soviet to post-Soviet museum cultures.

Drug-treatment courts have frequently been seen as a humane alternative to incarceration and the war on drugs. Enforcing Freedom presents an ethnographic account of drug courts and mandatory treatment centers as a system of coercion, demonstrating how the state uses notions of rehabilitation as a means of social regulation. Situating drug courts in a long line of state projects of race and class control, Kerwin Kaye details the ways in which the violence of the state is framed as beneficial for those subjected to it.

How should social workers adapt to a time of widespread instability and uncertainty? In this book, Ken Moffatt turns to postmodern philosophy’s grappling with late capitalism and the omnipresence of technology in order to develop a new approach to reflective social work practice and critical pedagogy. Postmodern Social Work attempts to reconcile postmodern thinkers with the realities of teaching social work to diverse student populations in a precarious era. Moffatt advocates an ideal of reflective practice that allows social workers to combine direct experience, social welfare, and social justice. KEN MOFFATT

COLUMBIA BOOKS ON ARCHITECTURE AND THE CITY

Space Settlements FRED SCHARMEN

In the summer of 1975, NASA brought together a team of physicists, engineers, and space scientists— along with architects, urban planners, and artists— to design large-scale space habitats for millions of people. This summer study was led by the Princeton physicist Gerard O’Neill, whose work on this topic had previously been funded by countercultural icon Stewart Brand’s Point Foundation. Two painters, the artist and architect Rick Guidice and the planetary science illustrator Don Davis, created renderings for the project that would be widely circulated over the next years and decades and even included in testimony before a congressional subcommittee. A product of its time, this work is nevertheless relevant to contemporary modes of thinking about architecture. Space Settlements examines these plans for life in space as serious architectural and spatial proposals. FRED SCHARMEN

teaches architecture and urban design at Morgan

State University’s School of Architecture and Planning. His work as a designer and researcher focuses on how architects imagine new spaces for speculative future worlds and who is invited into those worlds. Recent projects with the Working Group on Adaptive Systems include a mile-and-a-half long scale model of the solar system in downtown Baltimore (in collaboration with nine artists) and a pillow fort for the Baltimore Museum of Art based on Gottfried Semper’s Four Elements of Architecture.

The Revolution Will Be Stopped Halfway Oscar Niemeyer in Algiera

JASON ODDY

Of all of the Brazilian modernist Oscar Niemeyer’s many built works, his Algerian projects are among the least well known. Beginning in 1968, Algeria’s President Houari Boumediene commissioned Niemeyer to build two universities and an Olympic sports hall, as well as a series of large-scale, neverrealized projects across Algeria, in an attempt to forge a modernist, independent nation. In 2013, Jason Oddy produced an in-depth photographic survey of these buildings as they exist in Algeria today. The Revolution Will Be Stopped Halfway collects those images alongside archival documents and Oddy’s further research into Niemeyer’s Algerian work in order to explore the revolutionary politics that inspired and formed these buildings. JASON ODDY

is a writer and artist whose work focuses on the politics

of place. His photographic investigations of the Pentagon, formerly Soviet sanatoria, and Guantánamo Bay have been published and exhibited internationally, including at the Photographers’ Gallery (London), Paris Photo, the Milan Triennale, Tropenmuseum Amsterdam, and the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilisations in Marseilles. Oddy’s first book, Notes du désert (Grasset, 2017), explores America’s post-9/11 antiterror training grounds.

REM KOOLHAAS, DENISE SCOTT BROWN, AND YOSHIHARU TSUKAMOTO In conversation with Enrique Walker

Since the beginning of the century, the field of architecture has fervently documented the contemporary urban condition. The Ordinary articulates a potential genealogy for this practice and for the genre of books that derived from it. Organized around conversations with the authors of three seminal texts—Rem Koolhaas on Delirious New York, Denise Scott Brown on Learning from Las Vegas, and Yoshiharu Tsukamoto on Made in Tokyo—this volume traces the history of these “books on cities” by examining the material they recorded, the findings they established, the arguments they advanced, and the projects they promoted. REM KOOLHAAS, DENISE SCOTT BROWN , and YOSHIHARU TSUKAMOTO

are among the most renowned

architects of their generations and are collectively responsible for some of the discipline’s most important books on cities. ENRIQUE WALKER is associate professor at the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation

One of the biggest barriers to understanding preservation policy and its impacts has been the lack of data sets that can be used for geospatial, evidence-based, and longitudinal analyses. This book explores the ways that enhancing the collection, accuracy, and management of data can serve a critical role in identifying vulnerable neighborhoods, understanding the role of older buildings in economic vitality and community resilience, planning sustainable growth, and more. For preservation to play a dynamic role in sustainable development and social inclusion, policy must evolve beyond designation and design regulation and use evidence-based research to confront new realities in the management of urban environments and their communities.

Combining developmental psychology, psychoeducation, and systemic therapy, Families in Transition highlights the importance of clinicians’ own social locations and identities. It puts the responsibility on clinicians to challenge their own cisnormativity and blind spots, and to evaluate the ways they can become “gender creative.” Therapists working primarily with young children and adolescents and their families describe the range of parents’ emotional reactions and outline psychoeducational tools and clinical strategies to support their children’s quest for acceptance.

Queer Studies is designed as an advanced undergraduate textbook in queer studies for this rapidly growing field. It is also appropriate as an early required or recommended graduate textbook in queer, gender, and sexuality studies. The author uses the overarching concept of queering, drawn from queer theory, as a way of looking at the lives of queer people across a range of concepts drawn from different academic and scholarly disciplines. The intention is to survey these disciplines, beginning with the foundational study of language, and then to examine a variety of human experiences, including education, the rituals of marriage, and advocacy for justice.

The State Strikes Back

The End of Economic Reform in China? NICHOLAS R. LARDY

China’s extraordinarily rapid economic growth since 1978, driven by market-oriented reforms, has set world records and continued unabated, despite predictions of an inevitable slowdown. In The State Strikes Back: The End of Economic Reform in China?, the renowned China scholar Nicholas R. Lardy argues that China’s future growth prospects could be equally bright but are shadowed by the specter of resurgent state dominance, which has begun to diminish the vital role of the market and private firms in China’s economy.

Praise for Lardy’s Markets Over Mao “Everyone concerned with the future of China in the global economy should carefully consider Lardy’s thesis.” —Lawrence H. Summers, former U.S. treasury secretary

“Lardy is one of the world’s leading experts on the Chinese economy. This book is critical reading for anyone trying to gauge China’s economic prospects.”

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

—Robert Rubin, former U.S. treasury secretary

Lardy’s book arrives in timely fashion as a sequel to his pathbreaking Markets Over Mao: The Rise of Private Business in China. This book mobilizes new data to trace how President Xi Jinping has consistently championed state-owned or -controlled enterprises, encouraging local political leaders and financial institutions to prop up ailing, underperforming companies that are a drag on China’s potential. As with his previous book, Lardy’s perspective departs from conventional wisdom, especially in its contention that China could achieve a high growth rate for the next two decades—if it reverses course and returns to the path of marketoriented reforms. NICHOLAS R. LARDY , called “everybody’s guru on China” by the Na-

tional Journal, is the Anthony M. Solomon Senior Fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. He joined the Institute in March 2003 from the Brookings Institution, where he was a senior fellow from 1995 until 2003. He is author, coauthor, or editor of numerous books, including Markets Over Mao: The Rise of Private Business in China (2014) and Sustaining China’s Economic Growth After the Global Financial Crisis (2012).

AUSTRIAN FILM MUSEUM BOOKS

Gerhard Friedl [German language]

VOLKER PANTENBURG, EDITOR

This book sheds light on the work behind Friedl’s films. It combines working process documentation, including photographs, project drafts, and excerpts from his correspondence, with conversations with close collaborators. At the same time, the juxtaposed material traces the path from Friedl’s first short films to several unfinished projects undertaken around the time of his premature death. In addition, it republishes the articles Friedl wrote as a film and art critic and highlights his work as a film teacher and occasional curator.

“Gerhard Friedl saw cinema as a working tool, a means of breaking up or blasting open the fabric of society. Termite cinema—that is to say, the art of punching holes in the blinding confines of our worldview.” —Alexander Horwath, film critic and former director of the Austrian Film Museum

FOR SALE THROUGHOUT THE WORLD

Austrian director Gerhard Benedikt Friedl (1967–2009) left a small but singular oeuvre. His two films Knittelfeld: A Town Without a History (1997) and Wolff von Amerongen—Did He Commit Bankruptcy Offenses? (2004) are formally rigorous documentary investigations that combine an erratic voice-over commentary with patient observational camera movements. Informed by his studies of philosophy, Friedl invented a unique method of exposing the conjunction of politics, history, and violence in twentieth-century European capitalism. He embarked on a project investigating the history of the workers’ struggle in the United States, but decided to abandon it after a research trip convinced him of the difficulties in finding any remaining echoes of this movement. Traces of the project can be discerned in his final work, Shedding Details (2009), codirected by the artist Laura Horelli.

The volume contains contributions by Gerhard Friedl; conversations with Rudolf Barmettler, Ivette Löcker, Laura Horelli, and others; as well as an introductory essay by editor Volker Pantenburg. VOLKER PANTENBURG

is professor of film studies at the Free

University of Berlin. His books in English include Farocki/Godard: Film as Theory (2015) and Cinematographic Objects: Things and Operations (2015, edited).

At Home in the World

The Art and Life of Gulammohammed Sheikh

CHAITANYA SAMBRANI, EDITOR

F O R SA L E T H R O U G H O U T T H E WO R L D, E XC LU D I N G S O U T H A S I A

Gulammohammed Sheikh has played a pioneering role in contemporary Indian art’s engagement with hybridity and with the often paradoxical nature of tradition. For over five decades, in a practice stretching across painting and digital media, Sheikh has sought to articulate his fascination with historical figures and sources stretching from Italy to China, producing contemporary art that unashamedly declares its affiliations to earlier ways of seeing, thinking, and doing. At Home in the World presents the first comprehensive study of the art and life of this seminal figure. Besides the lead essay by Chaitanya Sambrani on Sheikh’s life and work, the book contains essays on specific aspects of his art practice by Coilin Parsons, Marcia Kupfer, and Karin Zitzewitz. CHAITANYA SAMBRANI

is an art historian and curator

specializing in modernist and contemporary art in Asia. He teaches at the Australian National University, Canberra.

Art Critique

Selected Writings of K. B. Goel SHRUTI PARTHASARATHY, EDITOR Foreword by Geeta Kapur

The Delhi-based art critic K. B. Goel (1930–2018) wrote on art from the late 1950s to the ’90s, his career broadly coinciding with the modernist period. Active mainly as a reviewer, Goel also wrote lengthy reflective assessments, and his art writings stand out for an interpretative and often theory-based approach. Writing on some of the most definitive artists, movements, and styles of twentieth-century Indian art, he bears the distinction of successfully transitioning from his modernist training to theorize on the earliest postmodern developments in Indian art, such as installation art. This annotated volume seeks to bring together Goel’s major writings, accompanied by a critical introduction that draws attention to his frameworks, concerns, and methodologies. It has a foreword by the eminent art critic Geeta Kapur. SHRUTI PARTHASARATHY

Socio-Economic Surveys of Three Villages in Tripura

A Study of Agrarian Relations

The Dancing Poet

RANJINI BASU, EDITORS

RIMLI BHATTACHARYA

The book is a report on the village economy of the state of Tripura in India, based on a survey of three villages in the state conducted by the Foundation for Agrarian Studies in May and June 2016. The villages— Mainama in Manu block, Chailengta tehsil, Dhalai district; Khakchang in Dasda block, Anand Bazaar tehsil, North district; and Muhuripur in Muhuripur tehsil, Julaibari block, South district—were surveyed under the ongoing Project on Agrarian Relations in India (PARI). The survey was conducted using a stratified simple random sampling method. A team from the Foundation for Agrarian Studies revisited the three villages in April 2017 to conduct case studies. These villages were also surveyed in 2005 for the Tripura Human Development Report 2007.

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

Education and Social Stratification in South Korea SHIN ARITA

Translated by Shinil Cho “South Korea is a country with a well-known intensive academic meritocracy. Does the academic meritocracy, however, accurately reflect the reality of the society? How is an ‘objective’ condition of the effect of academic credentials on one’s socioeconomic status converted into a ‘subjective’ condition of the effect of one’s academic credentials? Shin Arita, a comparative sociologist, renders cogent answers to these questions though his comprehensive quantitative analyses. Readers can learn from Arita’s thorough investigations what role education plays in shaping social stratification in a rapidly modernized society. This is a must-read book for those who are interested in the evolution of meritocracy.” —Takehiko Kariya, University of Oxford, author of Education Reform and Social Class in Japan

South Korea is noted for the hard-fought competition in university admission exams, which are widely believed to determine one’s prospects and shape their takers’ entire lives. Long after graduation, do admission exams still influence social circumstances? In this book, Shin Arita validates this belief with vast amounts of sociological data. He traces mechanisms that show the role of standardized testing in the formation of social strata.

This book considers migration to Europe in terms of the role adult civic education can play in the integration of newcomers with host communities. It contrasts Germany, Poland, and Ukraine, each of which saw different forms of migration and reactions to it. The book is animated by the conviction that successful integration should not be equated with migrants’ adjustment to existing, nonnegotiable conditions.

Alarums and Excursions

Improvising Politics on the European Stage LUUK VAN MIDDELAAR Translated by Liz Waters

Crisis after crisis has beset the European Union: the financial chaos of the euro and Greek sovereign debt; the conflicts with Russia over Crimea and Ukraine; a tsunami of refugees and migrants from across the Mediterranean; not to mention the turmoil created by Brexit and the threat of a trade war with Trump’s America. A Europe originally designed to regulate and enforce rules about fishing, wheat quotas, or product standards has found itself flung onto the global stage to grapple with problems of identity, sovereignty, and solidarity without a script or prompt. From Paris to Berlin and London to Athens, European leaders have had to improvise on issues threatening to engulf their unique political entity. They have had to speak and act in full view of an increasingly disenchanted and dissonant public audience.

“Quite simply the most insightful book on Europe’s politics today. A unique blend of behind-the-scenes knowledge, compelling ideas, and powerful political judgement. History

In a revealing and candid portrayal of a Europe improvising its way through a politics of events and not rules, Luuk van Middelaar gives us the insider’s view of the EU’s political metamorphosis. Forced into action by a tidal wave of emergencies, Europe has had to reinvent itself. It has had to cast off its legal straitjacket and to confront hard issues of power, territorial borders, and public authority. Van Middelaar contends that this reinvention will succeed only if the EU becomes a truly representative body that allows people’s opposition to share the stage.

The Finance and Economics of the Beautiful Game KIERAN MAGUIRE

Professional football is the most popular sport in the world. Kieran Maguire looks at the different ways in which football operates as a business—how clubs make their money or, more commonly, lose it. In particular, he analyzes how success is measured by the different and often competing stakeholders in football clubs—owners, managers, fans, players, commercial partners, and the media. Throughout, he draws on a range of case studies using the finances of professional clubs in the UK and elsewhere. At a time when many commentators bemoan the effects of “too much money,” this clearheaded and rigorous analysis of the financial imperatives and challenges facing football will be welcomed not only by students of the industry but by the wider constituency of fans.

In Of Time and Lamentation, Raymond Tallis explores the nature and meaning of time. Tallis seeks to reclaim time from the jaws of physics. The story told by caesium clocks, quantum theory, and Lorentz coordinates, he argues, needs to be supplemented by one of moss on rocks, tears on faces, and the long narratives of our human journey. A bold, original, and thought-provoking work, Of Time and Lamentation is for anyone who has puzzled over the nature of becoming, wondered whether time is inseparable from change, or even whether time itself is real.

The Future of UK–China Relations

The Search for a New Model KERRY BROWN

F O R S A L E O N LY I N N O R T H A N D S O U T H A M E R I C A

The UK has had one of the longest and most multifaceted relationships with China of any western nation. Since the return of Hong Kong to Chinese rule in 1997, policies of engagement have replaced those of confrontation. As China’s economy has eclipsed that of the UK, the transformation of that relationship has become imperative for the UK. At a time when China’s role in the world is becoming the focus of international business strategy and Brexit is pushing the UK to look to the rest of the world for trade and investment, Kerry Brown assesses the potential for a new “golden age” of UK– China relations and what the UK needs to understand about China before embarking on such a venture.

The Indian Economy MATTHEW McCARTNEY

This book explains the development of the Indian economy since independence and partition. Matthew McCartney uses case studies of poverty and inequality, of education, health, work, and gender issues to outline the human story behind the economic figures and performance indicators. The factors that have made India unique, such as its internal geography and languages, the significance of the service sector, and the “democratic paradox of public service delivery” are explored in detail. The book provides a welcome up-to-date overview of the contemporary Indian economy—and the reasons it has assumed its current form—that will be of great value to students, professionals, and scholars needing an introduction to this most diverse of economies.

Gender and Finance

The Informal Economy

Women are largely invisible in financial governance, not only as senior decision makers within financial institutions but also because the discourses through which finance governance is framed erase the asymmetric power of women and men. In this important study, Brigitte Young focuses our attention on the gendered implication of financial governance, financialization, monetary policy, and financial crisis. She presents options for rebalancing the financial system to make it inclusive and fair. Young examines the role of risk and creditor bias, knowledge bias in traditional economic textbooks, taxation, and public spending, as well as the role of democratic accountability in finance in bringing about change.

The “informal” economy—economic activity and income outside government regulation, taxation, and observation—is, by its very nature, difficult to quantify. Colin C. Williams provides an authoritative introduction to the topic, explaining what the informal economy is (and what it isn’t) and how it can best be measured. Taking a global perspective, he examines its characteristics in developed, developing, and transitional economies and looks at its role as a driver of economic growth. The book considers the motivations of the informal-economy workforce and assesses the policy options available to governments, whether a punitive policy of deterrence or one of accommodation that recognizes the value of the sector in generating income and in meeting the needs of poor consumers.

Exploring the Thought of Karl Polanyi

The Size of Government

The work of Karl Polanyi has become a central reference point for scholars working in a variety of traditions and disciplines within the social sciences. This book offers a comprehensive introduction to Polanyi’s work by examining the key themes that run throughout it: economy, commodification, money, the gold standard, geopolitical economy, the state, class, fascism, democracy, and knowledge. Each chapter introduces the relevant aspects of Polanyi’s writings, covering important terminology and the position of the topic in relation to his work more broadly, and highlights the connections that Polanyi has with contemporary issues and debates. The contributors seek simultaneously to openly engage with the problems of Polanyi’s work and also to celebrate its diversity, encouraging the reader to see it as a whole and not as a set of fragmented concepts. GARETH DALE

Measurement, Methodology, and Official Statistics

The growing economic power of government has prompted attempts to seek to establish the optimum size of government and how it might relate to economic growth, productivity, and inflation. Vaclav Rybacek argues that many studies have underestimated the size of government, leading to erroneous policy recommendations and an unrealistic assessment of a government’s ability to meet its debts. Drawing on Austrian economic theory, the book offers a more robust methodology for the measurement of government. Using data from the European Union, he is able to recalculate fiscal indicators to present a more appropriate set of data for the analysis of public-sector dynamics in the majority of countries in the EU.

“I found his reasoning fascinating and his arguments experience to facilitate their own development sound and well-reasoned. This book will be read and discussed by scholars and practitioners interested in a better understanding of the road to economic development.” —Myron Scholes, Stanford University

This book presents a collection of articles by Lawrence Juen-yee Lau from 1994 to 2018, discussing Chinese economic development over the past decades. Lau evaluates the relative importance of different sources of growth for the Chinese economy and scrutinizes the strategy of reform and development at various stages. Based on a comprehensive account of China’s macroeconomy, the book addresses the question of whether Chinese economic growth is an extraordinary “miracle” or an implausible economic “bubble.” LAWRENCE JUEN-YEE LAU

It focuses on the continuous influence of the ideological structure of socialist realism on the practice and discourse of contemporary Chinese art. Key themes include the possibility for individuals to strive for room for creative practice under harsh political circumstances; how political signals and collective unconscious actions measured up against each other and marched forward hand in hand; and the collective oblivion of the young generation and their “natural inheritance” of past experiences in major social movements.

Volume 1: Discovery and Transmission

ALAIN ARRAULT Translated by Lina Verchery

Translated and edited by Lothar von Falkenhausen

The silk manuscripts from Zidanku, Changsha (Hunan) are the only preimperial Chinese manuscripts on silk found to date. Dating from the fourth to the third centuries BCE (Late Warring States period), they contain several short texts concerning basic cosmological concepts in a diagrammatic arrangement and surrounded by pictorial illustrations. This is the first in a two-volume monograph on the Zidanku manuscripts, presenting the archaeological context and history of the transmission of the physical manuscripts. LI LING,

The Domestic Statuary of Hunan

a distinguished Chinese historian and archaeolo-

gist, is a towering figure in the study of classical Chinese civilization. He has been on the faculty of the Department of Chinese Literature at Peking University since 1985.

“[Arrault’s] new vantage point helps to fill out our picture of the Chinese religious landscape and at the same time challenges many scholarly assumptions about the nature of Chinese religions—and the ways they have been conceptualized and categorized— from the sixteenth century to the present day.” —James Robson, Harvard University

At the heart of the local culture of central Hunan is a kind of statuary found nowhere else in China—sculpted images of local people, primarily religious specialists of a wide range, but also parents and ancestors. Based on two decades of international collaborative research, Alain Arrault focuses on some 4,000 of these statues and studies them on the basis of consecration certificates inserted in the statues.

Blood and Black Lace

The Mummy

Mario Bava’s Blood and Black Lace (1964) is a legendary title, commonly considered the archetypal giallo. It set the rules for the genre: a masked, black-gloved killer, an emphasis on graphic violence, elaborate and suspenseful murder sequences. But Blood and Black Lace is first and foremost an exquisitely stylish film, full of gorgeous color schemes, elegant camerawork, and surrealistic imagery. This book examines its main narrative and stylistic aspects, including the groundbreaking prominence of violence and sadism and its use of color and lighting, as well as Bava’s irreverent approach to genre filmmaking and clever handling of the audience’s expectations by way of irony and pitch-black humor. The book also considers Blood and Black Lace’s place within Bava’s oeuvre, its historical impact on the giallo genre, and its influential status on future filmmakers.

Released in 1932, The Mummy moved Universal horror away from the Gothic Europe of Dracula and Frankenstein and into a land of deserts, pyramids, and long-lost tombs. This book examines the roots of The Mummy. It shows how the film shares many of its motifs with the work of writers such as Bram Stoker, Arthur Conan Doyle, and H. Rider Haggard, whose tales of living mummies, immortal sorcerers, and Egyptian mysticism bear strong resemblances to Universal’s movie. In addition, the book discusses how The Mummy drew upon a contemporary vogue for all things ancient Egyptian: the tomb of Tutankhamun was discovered the decade before the film was released, prompting sensationalistic rumors of a curse. This is the story of what happened when Hollywood horror went to Egypt.

Studying Shaun of the Dead

LUKE ASPELL

HOLLY TAYLOR

Shivers (1975) was David Cronenberg’s first commercial feature and his first horror film. Because the writer-director’s imaginative landscape arrived in the genre fully formed, the unique forms of this début have often been overlooked or mistaken for shortcomings. Cronenberg’s most comedic film until Map to the Stars, Shivers is also his most spectacularly unnerving, throwing more images of extreme behavior at us than any of his subsequent films; it remains, with Crash, his most disquieting and transgressive film to date. Luke Aspell’s analysis addresses shot composition, lighting, cinematographic texture, sound, the use of stock music, editing, costume, makeup, optical work, the screenplay, the casting, and the direction of the actors. This tour of Shivers as “cognitive territory” takes in architecture, cultural context, critical reception, and artistic legacy.

Shaun of the Dead (2004) was a breakthrough film for director Edgar Wright and star and cowriter Simon Pegg, who entranced audiences with their combination of high-energy originality and magpie-like referencing of pop culture. Studying Shaun of the Dead looks at Wright’s cinematic style, covering overarching aspects of the film and core areas of film studies. It includes in-depth study of representation, looking at age and gender and the the relationships among characters, narrative structure and devices, and ideological aspects. There is in-depth analysis of the genres that Wright blends, highlighting conventions as well as drawing contrasts with the films that inspired this romance-zombie-comedy. The book analyzes production, distribution, and marketing; the varying interpretations of the film; and reasons that might lie behind its success with audiences.

Alfonso Cuarón’s visionary Children of Men (2006) was released to good reviews and poor box office but is now regarded by many as a twenty-first-century masterpiece. Dan Dinello explicates its significance in the context of today’s rise of authoritarianism and white nationalism. Examining the film from ideological, psychological, and philosophical perspectives, the book explores the film’s connection to post-9/11 apocalyptic narratives, its evolutionary twist to the nativity story, and its warning about the rise of neofascism. It delves into the film’s visual uniqueness as science fiction and the innovative filmic techniques developed by Cuarón and his cinematographer, Emmanuel Lubezki. Dinello explores the film’s criticism of the pathologies of reactionary politics, arguing that it prods us to imagine an egalitarian alternative with a narrative that urges emotional identification with rebels, outcasts, and racial and ethnic outsiders.

Jurassic Park

PAUL BULLOCK

Jurassic Park (1993) is widely acknowledged as one of the most significant blockbusters of the 1990s, a position underlined by its pioneering use of CGI to resurrect the dinosaurs with more realism than ever before. This book shows that there’s much more to Jurassic Park than a simple special-effects extravaganza. First, it considers how Steven Spielberg blends science fiction and horror and how the mix of those two genres affects the film and its message. Then it looks at what the film has to say about humanity’s relationship with nature, its commentary on the bond between an audience and the fantasy of cinema, and, finally, its thoughts on the manifestation of violence and control. It does this through close analysis of key characters, story points, and scenes and the film’s place within the context of Spielberg’s career as a whole. PAUL BULLOCK

in the work of Steven Spielberg, he has written about the director for Den of Geek and Starburst and the anthology The Take 2 Guide to Steven Spielberg.

DAVID CARTER

Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010) is a difficult film to categorize. It partakes of various genres, blurring the distinctions between them. It is science fiction, but it does not contain many of the ingredients associated with that genre. It can also be identified as a kind of heist film, and there are shades of film noir as well. It can be described as a psychological thriller; in addition, it plays with time, questioning the certainty of consciously experienced real time and revealing that the personal experience of the passing of time is variable. The film also explores the nature of the mind and how dreams are related to the conscious and unconscious mind. David Carter covers all of these facets of a complex yet highly successful film, as well as considering it in the context of the director’s other work. DAVID CARTER

Terry Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys (1995) was a commercial and critical success, but it is Gilliam’s least understood film, even on the basic plot level. Aside from recognizable debts to specific films such as La Jetée (1962) and Dr. Strangelove (1964), 12 Monkeys plays with a number of genres: apocalypse and postapocalypse movies, sci-fi, and nuclear noir. This volume examines Gilliam’s film— and the TV series based on it—with an eye to the film’s major themes, including mental illness, conspiracy theories, the impossibility of human closeness, and the nature of reality. It is the first to read 12 Monkeys’s portrayal of time travel in light of Einstein’s ideas about time and to ask what answers these ideas suggest to the film’s most basic philosophical predicament: the problem of free will versus determinism.

Nostalgia for the Future

The New Authoritarianism

Modernism and Heterogeneity in the Visual Arts of Nazi Germany

Vol. 2: A Risk Analysis of the European Alt-Right Phenomenon

GREGORY MAERTZ

ALAN WARING, EDITOR

“I cannot recommend this book, or endorse these astonishing findings, in strong enough terms—you really need to read this study for yourself. Prepare to be shocked.”

Foreword by George Boustras “This book does not pull any punches in successfully raising consciousness about the alt-right and the threats it poses to democratic societies.”

Analysis of the Radical Right

“Maertz’s archival research changes everything we thought we knew about the visual arts in Nazi Germany. This is a superb and indispensable study.” —Erik Tonning, University of Bergen, director, Norwegian Study Centre, University of York

Demonizing modernist art as a symptom of the corruption of German culture was a standard trope in National Socialist propaganda. Gregory Maertz’s pioneering research unearths the persistence of modernist styles in painting and sculpture produced under the patronage of the Nazi Party and German government institutions, even after the infamous 1937 purge of “degenerate art.” GREGORY MAERTZ

is professor in the Department of

English at St. John’s University in New York City and author of Literature and the Cult of Personality (ibidem, 2017).

This book considers the new alt-right authoritarianism from a risk perspective. Contributing authors represent an eclectic range of disciplines, including cognitive, organizational, and political psychology; sociology; history; political science; international relations; linguistics and discourse analysis; and risk analysis. Vol. 2 illuminates the phenomenon in the United Kingdom, Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Italy, Hungary, and Russia. Potential strategies to limit the alt-right threat are proposed. ALAN WARING

was an international risk-management con-

sultant on a range of corporate, strategic, and operational risk issues to government departments, institutions, and large corporations in many countries. His books include Corporate Risk and Governance (2013) as well as The New Authoritarianism, vol. 1: A Risk Analysis of the US Alt-Right Phenomenon (ibidem, 2018).

21st Century Manifestations of an Historical Challenge VALERY PERRY, EDITOR

This volume explores violent extremism on the ground in Serbia in 2017 and 2018. Drawing on original research, it demonstrates that Serbia is at risk of many types of interconnected extremism: ISIS-inspired Salafi jihadism as well as far-right nationalism, violent hooliganism, and neo-Nazi movements. It argues that the threat of radicalism can best be countered by achieving the liberal, democratic, rights-based reforms that have remained elusive for more than two decades. VALERY PERRY

late 1990s, conducting research for a variety of policy groups and nongovernmental organizations.

Following its independence, Ukraine has sought a new national history. After the 2004 Orange Revolution, newly elected president Viktor Yushchenko embarked on an ambitious project to rehabilitate the far-right Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN). This rewriting of history has required a highly selective rendering of history, in particular with regard to their role in the Holocaust and murderous ethnic cleansing of Poles. Juxtaposing the Ukrainian government’s official representation of the OUN’s leaders with international scholarly research, Per A.

Forming a pair with the voice, the gaze is a central structuring element of Samuel Beckett’s creation. This study systematically examines these essential aspects of the visual in Beckett’s creation. The theoretical elaborations of Jacques Lacan—in relation with corresponding developments in the history and philosophy of the visual arts—offer an indispensible framework to understand the imaginary not as representation but as rooted in the fundamental opacity of existence. “Informed by a judicious and lucid engagement with the work of Jacques Lacan, Brown offers a compelling analysis of Beckett’s relentless investigation of the act of seeing—and, above all, of not seeing.” —Shane Weller, professor of comparative literature, University of Kent LLEWELLYN BROWN

Helmut Meier analyzes the image of Africans in pro- and antislavery texts from the British debate on the slave trade. He argues that by portraying African slaves as suffering wretches, antislavery texts created colonial others who could subsequently become the objects of a discourse of colonial reform and “betterment.”

The Complete Guide to Children’s Drawings

Accessing Children’s Emotional World Through Their Artwork

A Systems Analysis of Medicine (SAM) Healing Medicine KEN A. BRYSON

MICHAL WIMMER “Bryson eloquently proves that he stands for the “An insightful, scholarly, comprehensive, and useful

dignity of both patient and physician. This book is an indispensable manual and a source of inspiration for all those who see in the patient a human person and

would recommend it to therapists and trainers alike.”

not just an organic body.”

—Colleen McLaughlin, University of Sussex

—Alexander L. Gungov, University of Sofia

This indispensable guide for parents and professionals offers fascinating ways to better understand the emotional world of children and what is important to them as represented by their drawings. It presents cases of children and adolescents coping with a variety of life challenges and clinical issues by way of interpreting their artwork. Using over 250 real-life examples of children’s drawings, Wimmer offers effective coping tools and solutions inspired by this artwork that can be extremely useful in enhancing children’s self-confidence and family relationships.

This book promotes a holistic vision of the doctor-patient relationship, arguing that it ought to be based on the totality of the human experience rather than on the reductive view of the patient as a person with a certain disease. Ken A. Bryson argues that we need to secure the ethical foundation of universal medicine, establishing the Hippocratic Oath as the universal proof of human dignity. This view emboldens us to raise medicine from the level of an impersonal technological encounter with disease to its rightful place as a sacred activity that includes all levels of the human experience.

New Authoritarianism

Challenges to Democracy in the 21st Century JERZY J. WIATR, EDITOR

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

Authoritarian tendencies have appeared in several long-standing democracies, but their main successes have taken place in states that emerged from dictatorial rule only recently. Elected leaders interpret democracy narrowly, as the rule of the majority only, and ignore other conditions for democratic government, such as the rule of law and protecting human rights. This book contains case studies of contemporary Hungarian, Kenyan, Polish, Russian, and Turkish regimes and what they portend for democratic politics. It argues that such a system of government differs from the classic authoritarian model as defined by Juan J. Linz and can best be called “new authoritarianism.” The future of the new authoritarianism remains uncertain, as this book reveals. JERZY J. WIATR

Parliamentarism and Democratic Theory

Historical and Contemporary Perspectives KARI PALONEN AND JOSÉ MARÍA ROSALES, EDITORS

This book considers the place of parliamentary politics in democracy. A missing research object in democratic theory, the parliamentary culture of politics historically explains the rise and fall of modern democracies. By exploring democracy from the vantage point of parliamentary politics, this book advances a novel perspective. Aimed at revising current debates on parliamentary politics, democratization, and democratic theory, the authors argue that the parliamentary culture of politics plays a central role in democracy, vindicating the argumentative, debating experience of politics to recast both some of democratic theory’s normative assumptions and real democracies’ reform potential.

What new concepts of gender and diversity have emerged from the latest research and practical fields in a diverse and changing Europe? Against the backdrop of current European developments, from economic deregulation and a shrinking welfare state to the dissolution and reinforcement of borders, this book examines the development of gender and diversity studies in different European regions and beyond.

This book explores the biographies of highly mobile startup founders, who often run startups that have been called “born global.” It describes how they move, how they orient and perceive themselves, and how migration and mobility play a role beyond the physical act of moving. Presenting current ethnographic research, the book critically discusses approaches in migration and mobility studies and the research field of the “migration of the highly skilled.”

Social work as a democratically constituted profession committed to human rights is currently facing cross-border encroachments and attacks by right-wing populist movements and governments. This book examines how social work can respond effectively to nationalism, exclusion, de-solidarization, and a basic skepticism about science and position itself against this background.

Civil Strife Against Local Governance

Dynamics of Community Protests in Contemporary South Africa

NALELI MOROJELE

SETHULEGO MATEBESI

This book considers the successes, challenges, and controversies of women’s postconflict political leadership. Through interviews with women who have held significant leadership positions in Rwanda and South Africa, it explores the relationships between their educational, professional, activist, and personal backgrounds. It situates their stories within historical and contemporary political contexts, illustrating the gendered ways in which women experience politics as citizens and politicians.

Hardly a day goes by without South Africans going on a rampage over the provision of basic municipal services such as water, electricity, sanitation, and other municipal obligations. This book connects the critical issue of community protests to the equally precarious issue of political trust in local governance in South Africa by using comparative analysis of grassroots activism in predominantly black communities and predominantly white communities.

Transnational civil-society networks have become increasingly important democratizing actors in global politics.

This book attempts to understand how new forms of democratic practice emerge in the interaction between political actors and their structural environments.

The Game of Urban Regeneration

The Creativity Complex

Culture & Community in London 2012 and Berlin’s Mediaspree

A Companion to Contemporary Culture

FRANCESCA WEBER-NEWTH

EDITORS

Who wins and who loses in urban regeneration? Francesca Weber-Newth looks at two neighborhoods that are adjacent to large-scale regeneration schemes: the 2012 Olympic park in London and the Mediaspree waterside development in Berlin. By analyzing how urban regeneration is experienced on the ground, her study counters the notion that Olympic-led regeneration is any different from other forms of neoliberal urban development. Her analysis of the two neighborhoods reveals how the concepts of culture and community are strategically employed in urban regeneration—to the benefit of some and the detriment of others.

Wherever we turn, we find creative practices and creative spaces, creative organizations and creative subjects. At work or in public places, in media representations and in advertisements, on social platforms, in schools and universities: there is a demand to be new and special, conspicuous and singular. How did this creativity complex and its imperative to be creative come about? Where are its limits? Gathering and interweaving forty short and incisive essays, this companion maps, investigates, and illuminates the contemporary creativity complex.

What does the development of a truly robust contemporary theory of domination require? Ashley J. Bohrer argues that it is only by considering all of the dimensions of race, gender, sexuality, and ability within the structures of capitalism and imperialism that we can understand power relations as we find them nowadays. Bohrer explains how many of the purported incompatibilities between Marxism and intersectionality arise more from miscommunication than a fundamental conceptual antagonism. Marxism and Intersectionality serves as a tool for activists and academics working against multiple systems of domination, exploitation, and oppression. ASHLEY J. BOHRER

intellectual based in New York, where she currently teaches

The human capacity for speech has long been celebrated as evidence of our innate civility. Why, then, is public discourse often—and today more than ever—so uncivil? The reason, argues James Martin in this timely book, lies in the way speech works to organize desire. More than knowledge or rational interests, public speech services an unconscious urge for a lost enjoyment, stimulating an excess in subjectivity that moves us in body and mind. Martin draws upon the work of the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan as well as other continental thinkers to set out a new approach to the analysis of rhetoric and answer the troubling question of whether civil discourse can ever hope to escape its obscene underside.

How Young Immigrant Israelis in the Nationalist Yisra’el Beitenu Party Read Israeli Citizenship ANJA SCHMIDT-KLEINERT

How do young people from immigrant families become engaged in Israeli politics? Anja Schmidt-Kleinert examines the case of young Israelis who are actively engaged with the nationalist Yisra’el Beitenu party, led by the Israeli minister of defense, Avigdor Lieberman. She explores how they present an exclusionary vision of citizenship and construct a sense of belonging by reproducing ethnonationalist discourse. ANJA SCHMIDT-KLEINERT

How does the far right operate today? This volume presents a unique critical survey of the online and offline tactics, symbols, and platforms that are strategically remixed to stake national and transnational cultural claims by contemporary far-right groups in Europe and North America. Featuring short, accessible analyses by an international range of expert scholars, policy advisors, and activists, the book offers a plurality of answers to practical and theoretical questions about how and why the internet has been crucial to emboldening extreme nationalisms in these regions and what approaches civil societies should develop in response.

Gender in the Picaresque Novel

MAREN LICKHARDT, GREGOR SCHUHEN, AND HANS RUDOLF VELTEN, EDITORS

Is the pícaro, the roguish hero of early-modern Spanish adventure fiction, a “real man?” What position does he hold in the gender hierarchy of his fictional social context? Why is the pícara so nonfemale? Although scholars have recognized the picaresque figure as a transgressive and subversive model, the queer effect of the figure is yet to be examined. Considering class, generation, and topography, the contributions assembled in this volume explore Spanish, French, English, and German novels from the perspective of gender and cultural theory.

Against the background of legislative processes on gender recognition in a society shaped by heteronormative hegemony, Adrian de Silva traces how sexology, the law, federal politics, and the trans movement interacted to generate or challenge concepts of trans(sexuality) from the mid-1960s to 2014 in the Federal Republic of Germany. The interdisciplinary study draws upon and contributes to debates in (trans)gender and queer studies, political science, sociology of law, sexology, and social movements.

Video games permeate our everyday existence. They immerse players in gameworlds and experiences, often inviting them in various ways to reflect on the enacted events. Gerald Farca explores the genre of dystopian video games and the player’s aesthetic response to their nightmarish gameworlds. Players, he argues, will gradually come to see similarities between the virtual dystopia and their own offline environment, thus learning to stay wary of social and political developments. Farca draws from a variety of fields, such as literary theory and game studies, combining them into an innovative theory of aesthetic response to dystopian games. GERALD FARCA

Is it possible to create a community where everyone lives according to their own rhythm and yet respects the individual rhythms of others? This volume investigates the concepts that Roland Barthes discussed in his 1977 lecture series, How to Live Together. The anthology presents original and thought-provoking approaches to questions of conviviality and idiorrhythmic life-forms in literature, arts, and other media. The essays are written by distinguished scholars representing literary studies, philosophy, social sciences, theology, church history, psychoanalysis, art history, architecture, media studies, history of ideas, and biology.

How can the paradoxical conceptual overlap of nostalgia and sustainability in cultural constructions of the present be used in order to make previously unexplored territory within the study of culture accessible? This collection of essays and artistic contributions problematizes the relationship between past-oriented practices of sustaining and future-oriented forms of remembering.

The relationship between economy, finance, and society has become opaque. Quantum leaps in complexity and scale have turned this deeply interdependent web of relations into an area of incomprehensible abstraction. This volume explores the ethical, aesthetic, and ideological dimensions of economic representation, addressing essential questions: What are the roles of mass and new media? How do the arts contribute to critical discourse on the global techno-economic complex? Collectively, the contributions bring theoretical debate and artistic intervention into a rich exchange.

Johanna Schindler examines the collaborative practices of two artistic research projects in the fields of digital musical instrument design and responsive environments. How are individual research modes organized? Which forms of knowledge are at stake? And what sort of influence do institutional settings, spatial arrangements, and boundary objects have on the emerging research dynamics? Schindler suggests concrete measurements that can be utilized to adapt research environments, funding structures, and evaluation criteria to the specific needs of this emerging field.

coordinator of the long-term research project Technosphere (2015–19) at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin. Previously, she was a curatorial assistant at Kunstmuseum Liechtenstein and a research fellow at Zeppelin University, Germany, from which she also holds a PhD.

In electronic-music culture, anonymity practices have long been established as a method of critique of pop-star cults and identification regimes. How can scholars research an antirepresentational music culture, and what can they learn from it? Recently, electronic pop music has resorted to a performative play with identity involving fake or parafictive identities or collaborative persona imaginations. This study sketches two musico-artistic projects of anonymity performance as forms of immanent and particulate critical practice in the sense of Judith Butler and Michel Foucault. Adopting performance in a reflexive and performative writing style, this performance ethnography calls for a radical performative turn in the cultural studies of music. STEFANIE KIWI MENRATH

The beginning of the twentieth century saw a reinterpretation of the concept of the accident. While accidents were traditionally considered inevitable, the emergence of the modern state led to the creation of institutions, practices, and legal concepts for their management and prevention that considerably changed everyday life. The contributions in this volume explore social, cultural, political, administrative, and medical responses to accidents in modern states. The case studies include British, French, German, Italian, Chinese, and Chilean experiences, providing different national perspectives on the governance of risk.

URSULA BERTRAM

MARINA GERBER

EVGENIA ILIOPOULOU

Ursula Bertram contends that when artistic thought is circulated and probed in nonartistic fields, a crucial pattern called artistic transfer emerges. She observes the strategies and principles of artists, choreographers, musicians, and unruly thinkers and compares them with the statements of physicists, mathematicians, managers, and researchers.

Marina Gerber analyzes Collective Actions, one of the most significant artistic practices to emerge from Moscow Conceptualism, in relation to labor in the late Soviet Union. She explores the relations among their jobs, their individual art practices, and their contribution to the collective in the context of post-Stalinist debates on labor and free time.

Evgenia Iliopoulou rethinks second-person storytelling, starting from the essentials of grammar and rhetoric. In its various forms and typologies, the second person amplifies and expands the limits of representation. Iliopoulou describes it as a a narrative enigma: a small narrative gesture with major narrative impact.

Critical analysis of homosexuality in British fiction about the Second World War is noticeable by its absence. Natalie Marena Nobitz analyzes four novels dealing with the disruption of gender roles and institutionalized heteronormativity during the war: Walter Baxter’s Look Down in Mercy (1951), Mary Renault’s The Charioteer (1953), Sarah Waters’s The Night Watch (2006), and Adam Fitzroy’s Make Do and Mend (2012).

HANNE LACEULLE

What do literary texts tell us about growing old? The essays in this volume introduce and explore representations of aging and old age in canonical works of English and postcolonial literature. The contributors examine texts by William Shakespeare, Daniel Defoe, Julian Barnes, Thomas Kinsella, Seamus Heaney, J. M. Coetzee, Alice Munro, Witi Ihimaera, and Patricia Grace.

In this cultural-philosophical critique, Hanne Laceulle outlines counternarratives about later life that acknowledge both its potentials and vulnerabilities. She explores the significance of ethical concepts essential to the process of growing old, such as autonomy, authenticity, and virtue, aiming to support older individuals in their search for a meaningful age identity and recognition as moral agents.
