THE POWER OF RITUAL IN PREHISTORY Secret Societies and Origins of Social Complexity

Brian Hayden University of British Columbia, Vancouver

September 2018 253 x 177 mm 414pp 64 b/w illus.  4 maps   978-1-108-42639-8 Hardback £90.00

WHY IT WILL SELL • Proposes a new view of ritual and religion • Summarizes the material aspects of secret societies in each chapter and gives examples of archaeological applications to prehistoric sites in one of the final chapters • Offers general discussions followed by full documentation of the characteristics of secret societies organized by specific topics

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

The Power of Ritual in Prehistory is the first book in nearly a century to deal with traditional secret societies from a comparative perspective and the first from an archaeological viewpoint. Providing a clear definition, as well as the material signatures, of ethnographic secret societies, Brian Hayden demonstrates how they worked, what motivated their organizers, and what tactics they used to obtain what they wanted. He shows that far from working for the welfare of their communities, traditional secret societies emerged as predatory organizations operated for the benefit of their own members. Moreover, and contrary to the prevailing ideas that prehistoric rituals were used to integrate communities, Hayden demonstrates how traditional secret societies created divisiveness and inequalities. They were one of the key tools for increasing political control leading to chiefdoms, states, and world religions. Hayden’s conclusions will be eye-opening, not only for archaeologists, but also for anthropologists, political scientists, and scholars of religion.

TRADE AND CIVILISATION Economic Networks and Cultural Ties, from Prehistory to the Early Modern Era

Edited by Kristian Kristiansen, Thomas Lindkvist Göteborgs Universitet, Sweden

and Janken Myrdal Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

July 2018 253 x 177 mm 564pp 54 b/w illus.  57 maps   978-1-108-42541-4 Hardback £110.00

WHY IT WILL SELL • A global coverage allows scholars and students from many disciplines to use the book and compare different epochs and regions • Discussion of how trade promotes civilisation allows readers to engage in a critical discussion of two central concepts to our own time • A long-term perspective from 3000 BC to 1600 AD provides readers with an opportunity to discuss if past conditions have a bearing on our present

This book provides the first global analysis of the relationship between trade and civilisation from the beginning of civilisation 3000 BC until the modern era 1600 AD. Encompassing the various networks including the Silk Road, the Indian Ocean trade, Near Eastern family traders of the Bronze Age, and the Medieval Hanseatic League, it examines the role of the individual merchant, the products of trade, the role of the state, and the technical conditions for land and sea transport that created diverging systems of trade and in the development of global trade networks. Trade networks, however, were not durable. The book focuses on the establishment and decline of great trading network systems, and how they related to the expansion of civilisation and to different forms of social and economic exploitation. Case studies focus on local conditions as well as global networks until the sixteenth century when the whole globe was connected by trade.

CONTENTS 1. Theorising trade and civilisation; 2. Cloth and currency: on the ritual-economics of Eurasian textile circulation and the ‘origins’ of trade, fifth to second millennia BC; 3. Prices and values origins and early history in the Near East; 4. The rise of Bronze Age peripheries and the expansion of international trade 1950–1100 BC; 5.

THE CAMBRIDGE COMPANION TO HIPPOCRATES Edited by Peter E. Pormann University of Manchester

October 2018 228 x 152 mm 422pp 978-1-107-06820-9 Hardback £75.00

WHY IT WILL SELL • The first comprehensive introduction to the topic • An international team of contributors provides accessible guides to various approaches and themes • Pays equal attention to ‘Hippocrates’ and the ‘Hippocratic Corpus’, including its rich afterlife

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Hippocrates is a towering figure in Greek medicine. Dubbed the ‘father of medicine’, he has inspired generations of physicians over millennia in both the East and West. Despite this, little is known about him, and scholars have long debated his relationship to the works attributed to him in the so-called ‘Hippocratic Corpus’, although it is undisputed that many of the works within it represent milestones in the development of Western medicine. In this Companion, an international team of authors introduces major themes in Hippocratic studies, ranging from textual criticism and the ‘Hippocratic question’ to problems such as aetiology, physiology and nosology. Emphasis is given to the afterlife of Hippocrates from Late Antiquity to the modern period. Hippocrates had as much relevance in the fifth-century BC Greek world as in the medieval Islamic world, and he remains with us today in both medical and non-medical contexts.

CONTENTS 1. Introduction; 2. The ‘Hippocratic question’ and the nature of the Hippocratic Corpus; 3. Textual history; 4. Body; 5. Aetiology; 6. Epistemologies; 7. Ethics and deontology; 8.

NERO Emperor and Court

John F. Drinkwater University of Nottingham

This book portrays Nero, not as the murderous tyrant of tradition, but as a young man ever-more reluctant to fulfil his responsibilities as emperor and ever-more anxious to demonstrate his genuine skills as a sportsman and artist. This reluctance caused him to allow others to rule, and rule surprisingly well, in his name. On its own terms, the Neronian empire was in fact remarkably successful. Nero’s senior ministers were many and various, but notably they included a number of powerful women, such as his mother, Agrippina II, and his second and third wives, Poppaea Sabina and Statilia Messalina. Using the most recent archaeological, epigraphic, numismatic and literary research, the book explores issues such as courtpolitics, banter and free speech; literary, technological and scientific advances; the Fire of 64, ‘the persecution of Christians’ and Nero’s ‘Golden House’; and the huge underlying strength, both constitutional and financial, of the Julio-Claudian empire.

CONTENTS WHY IT WILL SELL • Argues for a new view of Nero’s principate by focusing on those around him and by directly addressing key topics, such as his mental health and the imperial fiscal system, which are usually side-lined or avoided • Takes a particular interest in the role of women in central Roman imperial politics and administration

Part I. Background: 1. Nero, ‘bad’ or ‘good’?; 2. Agrippina and her legacy; 3. The establishment team; 4. Dissimulation?; 5. Frankness and enquiry; 6. Warfare and the generals; 7. Politics; Part II. Assessment: 8. Killer? I – 54-62; 9. Killer? II – 62-68; 10. Arsonist, persecutor and ruthless urban developer?; 11. Divinity, madness, acting, ideology, burn-out; 12. Depravity? 13.

COMPUTER SCIENCE

THE HASKELL SCHOOL OF MUSIC From Signals to Symphonies

Paul Hudak and Donya Quick Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey

September 2018 228 x 152 mm 420pp 978-1-108-41675-7 Hardback £42.99

This book explores the fundamentals of computer music and functional programming through the Haskell programming language. Functional programming is typically considered difficult to learn. This introduction in the context of creating music will allow students and professionals with a musical inclination to leverage their experience to help understand concepts that might be intimidating in more traditional computer science settings. Conversely, the book opens the door for programmers to interact with music by using a medium that is familiar to them. Readers will learn how to use the Euterpea library for Haskell (http://www.euterpea.com) to represent and create their own music with code, without the need for other music software. The book explores common paradigms used in algorithmic music composition, such as stochastic generation, musical grammars, self-similarity, and real-time interactive systems. Other topics covered include the basics of signal-based systems in Haskell, sound synthesis, and virtual instrument design.

CONTENTS WHY IT WILL SELL • Teaches functional programming languages through music, an accessible and engaging setting • Teaches the Haskell programming languages, a powerful tool for applied mathematics and rapid prototyping • Introduces music representation and algorithmic composition

July 2018 228 x 152 mm 294pp 6 b/w illus.   978-1-108-42096-9 Hardback £18.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Debunks the explanations of Ben Bernanke, Timothy Geithner, and other Fed officials for their actions during the crisis • Corrects the record on the key moment of the 2008 financial crisis and the largest bankruptcy in US history • Tells the compelling story of the weekend of September 15th, 2008 when Lehman Brothers was forced to file for bankruptcy

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

The bankruptcy of the investment bank Lehman Brothers was the pivotal event of the 2008 financial crisis and the Great Recession that followed. Ever since the bankruptcy, there has been heated debate about why the Federal Reserve did not rescue Lehman in the same way it rescued other financial institutions, such as Bear Stearns and AIG. The Fed’s leaders from that time, especially former Chairman Ben Bernanke, have strongly asserted that they lacked the legal authority to save Lehman because it did not have adequate collateral for the loan it needed to survive. Based on a meticulous four-year study of the Lehman case, The Fed and Lehman Brothers debunks the official narrative of the crisis. It shows that in reality, the Fed could have rescued Lehman but officials chose not to because of political pressures and because they underestimated the damage that the bankruptcy would do to the economy. The compelling story of the Lehman collapse will interest anyone who cares about what caused the financial crisis, whether the leaders of the Federal Reserve have given accurate accounts of their actions, and how the Fed can prevent future financial disasters.

CONTENTS 1. Introduction; 2. The crisis of 2008; 3. The legal criteria for Fed assistance; 4. Lehman’s balance sheet and solvency; 5. Lehman’s liquidity crisis; 6. Lehman’s collateral and the feasibility of liquidity support; 7. Fed discussions of collateral and liquidity support; 8. Fed actions that ensured Lehman’s bankruptcy; 9. Possible long-term outcomes for Lehman; 10. How risky were the Fed’s rescues of other firms?; 11. Who decided that Lehman should fail?; 12. Explaining the Lehman decision; 13.

Foreword by Amartya Sen

At this time when many have lost hope amidst conflicts, terrorism, environmental destruction, economic inequality, and the breakdown of democracy, this beautifully written book outlines how to rethink and reform our key institutions – markets, corporations, welfare policies, democratic processes, and transnational governance – to create better societies based on core principles of human dignity, sustainability, and justice. This new vision is based on the findings of over three hundred social scientists involved in the collaborative, interdisciplinary International Panel on Social Progress. Relying on state-of-the-art scholarship, these social scientists reviewed the desirability and possibility of all relevant forms of longterm social change, explored current challenges, and synthesized their knowledge on the principles, possibilities, and methods for improving the main institutions of modern societies. Their common finding is that a better society is indeed possible, its contours can be broadly described, and all we need is to gather forces toward realizing this vision.

WHY IT WILL SELL • Describes political capitalism as a distinct system of political economy • Presents political capitalism as an explanation for the cronyism and corporatism that is widely criticized, and explains these activities as the symptoms of political capitalism • Uses the theories of rent-seeking, regulatory capture, interest group politics, and elite theory and shows how they explain political capitalism

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Problems associated with cronyism, corporatism, and policies that favor the elite over the masses have received increasing attention in recent years. Political Capitalism explains that what people often view as the result of corruption and unethical behavior are symptoms of a distinct system of political economy. The symptoms of political capitalism are often viewed as the result of government intervention in a market economy, or as attributes of a capitalist economy itself. Randall G. Holcombe combines well-established theories in economics and the social sciences to show that political capitalism is not a mixed economy, or government intervention in a market economy, or some intermediate step between capitalism and socialism. After developing the economic theory of political capitalism, Holcombe goes on to explain how changes in political ideology have facilitated the growth of political capitalism, and what can be done to redirect public policy back toward the public interest.

CONTENTS 1. The concept of political capitalism; 2. Political capitalism as an economic system; 3. The political and economic elite; 4. Interest groups and political exchange; 5. Political creation of economic rents; 6. Transitional gains and rent extraction; 7. The regulatory state; 8. Capitalism versus democracy; 9. The institutional evolution of political capitalism; 10.

September 2018 228 x 152 mm 215pp 7 b/w illus.  6 tables   978-1-108-47246-3 Hardback c. £79.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Presents a new, systemic approach to thinking about innovation, allowing a more comprehensive understanding of how it happens and who makes it happen • A new real-time perspective gives readers a penetrating sense of the players and processes involved • Illustrates the approach with multiple real-world case studies

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Martin Fransman presents a new approach to understanding how innovation happens, who makes it happen, and the helps and hindrances. Looking at innovation in real-time under uncertainty, he develops the idea of an ‘innovation ecosystem’, i.e. a system of interrelated players and processes that jointly make innovation happen. Examples include: how companies like Amazon, Google, Facebook, Apple, AT&T, and Huawei interact in the ICT Ecosystem; four innovations that changed the world – the transistor, microprocessor, optical fibre, and the laser; the causes of the telecoms boom and bust of the early 1990s that influenced the Great Recession from 2007; and the usefulness of the idea of innovation ecosystems for Chinese policy makers. By delving into the complex determinants of innovation this book provides a deeper, more rigorous understanding of how it happens. It will appeal to economists, social scientists, business people, policy makers, and anyone interested in innovation and entrepreneurship.

CONTENTS 1. Introduction; 2. Contextualising innovation – the Schumpeterian-evolutionary approach to economic change; 3. ‘National innovation systems’, ‘business ecosystems’, and ‘innovation ecosystems’; 4. The ICT innovation ecosystem; 5. Interview with Martin Fransman on innovation ecosystems; 6. How does innovation happen? – An ex ante perspective; 7. Who makes innovation happen? Is the entrepreneur becoming obsolete? Creating an organisation-level innovation ecosystem; 8. Innovation ecosystems and financial markets – the telecoms boom and bust 1996–2003; 9.

Econometrics can at first appear a highly technical subject, but it can also equip the practitioner with a useful skillset of smart ways to formulate research questions and collect data. Enjoyable Econometrics applies econometric methods to a variety of unusual and engaging research questions, often beyond the realm of economics, demonstrating the great potential of using such methods to understand a wide range of phenomena. Unlike the typical textbook approach, Enjoyable Econometrics follows in the footsteps of Freakonomics by posing interesting questions first before introducing the methodology to find the answers. Therefore, rather than equation-heavy sections based around complex methodologies, the reader is presented with chapters on ‘Money’ and ‘Fashion, Art and Music’. Franses writes in a way that will enthuse and motivate the economics student embarking upon the essential study of econometrics. Indeed, the book shows that econometric methods can be applied to almost anything.

AFTER FOUCAULT Culture, Theory, and Criticism in the 21st Century

Edited by Lisa Downing University of Birmingham

July 2018 229 x 152 mm 218pp 978-1-107-14049-3 Hardback £64.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Explains key Foucauldian concepts that are crucial for understanding Foucault in the twenty-first century, but that are often misunderstood (e.g. genealogy, subjectivity) • Shows how Foucauldian ideas inform twenty-first-century ideas and concerns, e.g. ecology, neoliberalism, sexual identity • The third section of the book carries out readings of autobiographical texts, novels, and works of true crime using a Foucauldian framework, allowing readers to use the chapters in this section of the book as models for doing readings of their own of cultural products and texts, with and through Foucault

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

The work of Michel Foucault is much read, widely cited, and occasionally misunderstood. In response to this state of affairs, this collection aims to clarify, to contextualize, and to contribute to Foucauldian scholarship in a very specific way. Rather than offering either a conceptual introduction to Foucault’s work, or a series of interventions aimed specifically at experts, After Foucault explores his critical afterlives, situates his work in current debates, and explains his intellectual legacy. As well as offering up-to-date assessments of Foucault’s ongoing use in fields such as literary studies, sexuality studies, and history, chapters explore his relevance for urgent and emerging disciplines and debates, including ecology, animal studies, and the analysis of neoliberalism. Written in an accessible style, by leading experts, After Foucault demonstrates a commitment to taking seriously the work of a key twentieth-century thinker for contemporary academic disciplines, political phenomena, and cultural life.

CONTENTS Introduction; Part I. Going after Foucault: 1. Foucault’s genealogy; 2. Foucault’s subjectivities; 3. Foucault’s history of neoliberalism; 4. Foucault’s bio-power; Part II. Coming after Foucault: 5. Foucault and literary theory; 6. Foucault and queer theory; 7. Foucault, race, and racism; 8. Foucault and ecology; Part III. Reading after Foucault: 9.

AFTER DERRIDA Literature, Theory and Criticism in the 21st Century

Edited by Jean-Michel Rabaté University of Pennsylvania

July 2018 229 x 152 mm 244pp 978-1-108-42610-7 Hardback £64.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Proposes a new and simple view of deconstruction • Provides many concrete examples of applications of theories to literary readings • The authors look to the future of literary studies

This collection of essays explores the main concepts and methods of reading launched by French philosopher Jacques Derrida who died in 2004. Derrida exerted a huge influence on literary critics in the 1980s, but later there was a backlash against his theories. Today, one witnesses a general return to his way of reading literature, the rationale of which is detailed and explained in the essays. The authors, both well-known and younger specialists, give many precise examples of how Derrida, who always remained at the cusp between literature and philosophy, posed fundamental questions and thus changed the field of literary criticism, especially with regard to poetry. The contributors also highlight the way Derrida made spectacular interventions in feminism, psychoanalytic studies, animal studies, digital humanities and post-colonial studies.

CONTENTS Introduction; Part I. Frames: 1. The instant of their debt: Derrida with Freud and Heidegger in Greece; 2. Derrida and the psychoanalysis of culture; 3. Derrida and sexual difference; 4. Derrida queries De Man: a note on the materiality of the letter vs the violence of the letter; Part II. Focus: 5. Derrida as literary reader; 6. Broken singularities (Derrida and Celan); 7. Derrida and the essence of poetry; 8. From Mallarmé to the event: Badiou after Derrida; Part III. Futures: 9. Ecce Animot: animal turns; 10. Deconstruction, collectivity, and world literature; 11. Literature calls justice: deconstruction’s ‘coming-to-terms’ with literature; 12. The documental revolution and the archives of the future.

AFTER LACAN Literature, Theory and Psychoanalysis in the 21st Century

Edited by Ankhi Mukherjee University of Oxford

This book draws on the distinct phases of Jacques Lacan’s career to show his way of thinking in and beyond his lifetime. It is an examination of the past, present, and futures of psychoanalysis, as these are developed beyond in the dimensions of language, literature, logic, philosophy, visual culture, identity and sexuality, and politics. The interdisciplinary approach of the volume allows it to work across clinical, sociological, philosophical, and literary fields to both add dimensions to the literary/critical reception of Lacan and enable the system of Lacanian psychoanalysis to have a wider conversation. Re-examining the fundamental concepts of Lacanian theory in its historical contexts through the topological structures he inaugurated, After Lacan makes innovative critical interventions in contemporary debates on racism, Islam, the Communist Party, poetry, new media, disability identity, and queer theory. It is a key resource for students, graduates, and instructors of literary theory, psychoanalysis, and the works of Lacan.

CONTENTS Introduction; Part I. Fundamental Concepts: 1. Voice after Lacan; 2. Freud’s return to Lacan; 3. Beyond the Oedipus complex; 4.

Over forty contributors with diverse and complementary specialities present a history of science fiction across national and genre boundaries, and trace its intellectual and creative roots in the philosophical and fantastic narratives of the ancient past. Science fiction as a literary genre is the central focus of the volume, but fundamental to its story is its non-literary cultural manifestations and influence.

The Bildungsroman has been one of the most significant genres in Western literature since the eighteenth century. This volume, comprised of eleven chapters by leading experts in the field, offers original insights into how the novel of formation developed a strong tradition in Germany, France, Britain, Russia, and the USA. In demonstrating how the genre has been adopted and adapted in innovative forms of fiction, this volume also shows how a genre traditionally associated with the young white man has been used to give expression to the formative experiences of women, LGBTQ people, and post-colonial populations. Exploring the genre’s emergence and evolution in numerous countries and across more than two hundred years, this volume provides unprecedented historical and geographical coverage and demonstrates that the Bildungsroman has a rich heritage and a bright future.

WHY IT WILL SELL • Re-interprets Stalinism as an integral part of world history • Synthesizes new research on Stalinism • Presents as an accessible, succinct, and engaging book, ideal for undergraduate courses

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Placing Stalinism in its international context, David L. Hoffmann presents a new interpretation of Soviet state intervention and violence. Many ‘Stalinist’ practices – the state-run economy, surveillance, propaganda campaigns, and the use of concentration camps – did not originate with Stalin or even in Russia, but were instead tools of governance that became widespread throughout Europe during the First World War. The Soviet system was formed at this moment of total war, and wartime practices of mobilization and state violence became building blocks of the new political order. Communist Party leaders in turn used these practices ruthlessly to pursue their ideological agenda of economic and social transformation. Synthesizing new research on Stalinist collectivization, industrialization, cultural affairs, gender roles, nationality policies, the Second World War, and the Cold War, Hoffmann provides a succinct account of this pivotal period in world history.

CONTENTS Introduction; 1. Prelude to Stalinism; 2. Building socialism (1928–33); 3. Socialism attained (1934–38); 4. The Second World War (1939–45); 5. The postwar years (1946–53); Conclusion.

WHY IT WILL SELL

Popular culture in Africa is the product of everyday life: the unofficial, the non-canonical. It is the dynamism of this culture that makes Africa what it is. In this book, Karin Barber offers a journey through the history of music, theatre, fiction, song, dance, poetry, and film from the seventeenth century to the present day. From satires created by those living in West African coastal towns in the era of the slave trade, to the poetry and fiction of townships and mine compounds in South Africa, and from today’s East African streets where Swahili hip hop artists gather to the juggernaut of the Nollywood film industry, this book weaves together a wealth of sites and scenes of cultural production. In doing so, it provides an ideal text for students and researchers seeking to learn more about the diversity, specificity and vibrancy of popular cultural forms in African history.

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

In Cold War Freud Dagmar Herzog uncovers the astonishing array of concepts of human selfhood which circulated across the globe in the aftermath of World War II. Against the backdrop of Nazism and the Holocaust, the sexual revolution, feminism, gay rights, and anticolonial and antiwar activism, she charts the heated battles which raged over Freud’s legacy. From the postwar US to Europe and Latin America, she reveals how competing theories of desire, anxiety, aggression, guilt, trauma and pleasure emerged and were then transformed to serve both conservative and subversive ends in a fundamental rethinking of the very nature of the human self and its motivations. Her findings shed new light on psychoanalysis’ enduring contribution to the enigma of the relationship between nature and culture, and the ways in which social contexts enter into and shape the innermost recesses of individual psyches.

THE EMERGENCE OF PUBLIC OPINION State and Society in the Late Ottoman Empire

October 2018 228 x 152 mm 256pp 978-1-107-19092-4 Hardback £75.00

WHY IT WILL SELL • Explores the historical evaluation of the concept of public opinion • Uses previously unused archival and historical sources • Takes a comparative and interdisciplinary approach to what has often been considered as a uniquely Western phenomenon

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Nineteenth-century Ottoman politics was filled with casual references to public opinion. Having been popularised as a term in the 1860s, the following decades witnessed a deluge of issues being brought into ‘the tribune of public opinion’. Murat R. S  i viloğlu explains how this concept emerged, and how such an abstract phenomenon embedded itself so deeply into the political discourse that even sultans had to consider its power. Through looking at the bureaucratic and educational institutions of the time, this book offers an analysis of the society and culture of the Ottomans, as well as providing an interesting application of theoretical ideas concerning common political identity and public opinion. The result is a more balanced and nuanced understanding of public opinion as a whole.

WHY IT WILL SELL • Recasts politics in the united Empire and the successor Khanates in light of women’s individual and systematic contributions

How did women contribute to the rise of the Mongol Empire while Mongol men were conquering Eurasia? This book positions women in their rightful place in the otherwise well-known story of Chinggis Khan (commonly known as Genghis Khan) and his conquests and empire. Examining the best known women of Mongol society, such as Chinggis Khan’s mother, Hö’elün, and senior wife, Börte, as well as those who were less famous but equally influential, including his daughters and his conquered wives, we see the systematic and essential participation of women in empire, politics and war. Anne F. Broadbridge also proposes a new vision of Chinggis Khan’s well-known atomized army by situating his daughters and their husbands at the heart of his army reforms, looks at women’s key roles in Mongol politics and succession, and charts the ways the descendants of Chinggis Khan’s daughters dominated the Khanates that emerged after the breakup of the Empire in the 1260s.

CONTENTS List of illustrations; Acknowledgements; Notes on transliteration; Introduction; 1. Women in steppe society; 2. Hö’elün and Börte; 3. Conquered women; 4.

August 2018 247 x 174 mm 230pp 978-1-108-42515-5 Hardback £64.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • The first general, non-languagespecific textbook to introduce the universal principles of grammar for students embarking on the study of a modern foreign language • Takes examples from a range of commonly-studied languages, to show students the universal grammatical principles that apply to all languages • Accessibly and simply written, for students with no prior knowledge of linguistics or linguistic terminology • It is suitable for both self-study and classroom use

Learning a foreign language is much easier when it is approached with a knowledge of language structure (‘grammar’), but many students find grammar mystifying. This text explains points of grammar straightforwardly using examples from several widely-studied languages, including English, so that students can see how the same principles work across different languages, and how the structures of different languages correspond both formally and functionally. The use of concrete examples makes grammar less abstract and easier to grasp, allowing students to relate what they are learning to knowledge that they already possess unconsciously; it simultaneously brings that knowledge up to a conscious level.

CONTENTS How to use this book; 1. Introduction; 2. Sentences, clauses, and their verbs; 3. Subjects; 4. Noun phrases; 5. Pronouns and subject-verb agreement; 6. Direct objects; 7.

PHONETICS A Practical Introduction

Ratree Wayland University of Florida

February 2019 247 x 174 mm 280pp 978-1-108-41834-8 Hardback £64.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Assumes no prior knowledge of the field, so concepts are explained with beginner audience in mind – each concept is clearly defined and illustrated with examples, illustrations, chapter summaries, hands-on exercises and practice tasks • Includes instructions on how to use online phonetics software, such as Praat – something students are more commonly asked to do, as well as how to use spectrographs/ grams

Speech is the most effective medium humans use to exchange and transmit knowledge, ideas and experiences. It exists physiologically as neural and muscular activity, and subsequent articulatory, acoustic and auditory events, and as an abstract, rule-governed system at the psychological level. Together, both levels produce communication by speech. To appreciate speech and its communicative function, all of its characteristics must be understood. This book offers the most comprehensive and accessible coverage of the three areas of phonetics: articulatory, acoustic and auditory or speech perception. Students without a linguistics background can be daunted by phonetics, so clear language is used to define linguistics and phonetics concepts with examples and illustrations to ensure understanding. Furthermore, each chapter concludes with comprehension exercises to reinforce understanding. Online exercises and recordings of speech stimuli from various languages provide additional opportunity to hone perception, production, phonetic transcription skills and acoustic analysis measurement practice.

CONTENTS 1. Speech articulation. Manner and place; 2. Airstream mechanisms and phonation types; 3. Suprasegmentals; 4. Transcribing speech; 5. Phonemic and morphophonemic analyses; 6. Basic acoustics; 7. Digital signal processing; 8. Acoustic properties of vowels and consonants; 9. Hearing; 10. Speech perception; 11. Experimental tools in articulatory phonetics; Index.

THE IMPULSE TO GESTURE Where Language, Minds, and Bodies Intersect

Simon Harrison University of Nottingham Ningbo China

August 2018 228 x 152 mm 248pp 111 b/w illus.  5 tables   978-1-108-41720-4 Hardback £85.00

WHY IT WILL SELL • Bridges the theoretical and empirical gap between gesture research and grammatical analysis • Offers a model to account for gestures cross-linguistically, including English, French, and Chinese, as well as gesture in signed language linguistics • Illustrated examples of gestures are provided to help readers follow the argument and analysis

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Gestures are central to the way people use language when they interact. This book places our impulse to gesture at the very heart of linguistic structure: grammar. Based on the phenomenon of negation – a linguistic universal with clear grammatical and gestural manifestations – Simon Harrison argues that linguistic concepts are fundamentally multi modal and shows how they lead to recurrent bindings between grammar and gesture when people speak. Studying how speakers express negation multi modally in a range of social and professional contexts, Harrison explores how and when people gesture, what people achieve linguistically and discursively with their gestures, and why we find similar uses of gesture in different languages (including spoken and signed language). Establishing the inseparability of grammar and gesture, this book is an important reference for any researcher interested in the relation between language, gesture, and cognition.

CONTENTS 1. The impulse to gesture: spontaneous but constrained; 2. The grammar-gesture nexus: a mechanism for regularity in gesture; 3. Sync points in speech: evidence of grammatical affiliation for gesture; 4. Gesture as construal: blockage, force, and distance in space and mind; 5. Gesture sequences: wrist as hinge for shifts in discourse; 6. Patterns of gesturing: the business of ‘horizontal palming’; 7. Wiping away: embodied interaction in speech and sign; 8. Impulse theory: how, when, and why we gesture.

THE INTERNET, WARTS AND ALL Free Speech, Privacy and Truth

Paul Bernal University of East Anglia

August 2018 228 x 152 mm 302pp 978-1-108-42221-5 Hardback £85.00

The Internet, Warts and All asks questions. Why are government digital policies so often out of touch and counter-productive? Why is surveillance law problematic and ineffective – and often defeated in court? Do companies like Google and Facebook really care about freedom of speech? Why are neither laws nor technology companies able to get to grips with trolling? Is ‘fake news’ something that can be ‘dealt with’? Can these issues be addressed more effectively, intelligently and appropriately in the future? To answer these questions, The Internet, Warts and All busts a number of myths and illusions about the internet – the neutrality of algorithms, the permanence of information, the impact of surveillance, the nature of privacy and more. It shows how trolling and ‘fake news’ arise – and why current moves to deal with them are doomed to failure. It suggests a way forward – by embracing the unruly nature of the internet.

ENHANCED BEINGS Human Germline Modification and the Law

Kerry Lynn Macintosh Santa Clara University, California

September 2018 228 x 152 mm 225pp 978-1-108-47120-6 Hardback £71.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Discusses psychological origins and consequences of objections to human germline modification • Debunks common objections to human germline modification • Describes current and future laws related to human germline modification

Today, scientists are using CRISPR/Cas9 and other molecular editing tools to alter human gametes and embryos, a practice known as human germline modification. In the near future, these efforts may lead to the birth of children with better health, improved memories, and extended lifespans. However, critics claim that human germline modification exceeds divine and natural boundaries, transforms reproduction into manufacture, and yields apocalyptic outcomes such as the collapse of democracy. Enhanced Beings: Human Germline Modification and the Law analyzes and critiques these objections on both biological and political grounds. Kerry Lynn Macintosh discusses the hidden psychology behind the objections, and describes the laws that affect this new technology. Provocative and timely, Enhanced Beings argues that bans on human germline modification pose a threat to scientists and science, parents, children, foreigners, and society.

CONTENTS Introduction; Part I. Objections to Human Germline Modification: 1. Therapy and enhancement; 2. Transgressing boundaries; 3. Transforming reproduction into manufacture; 4. Stratifying society; 5. Endangering democracy, society, and the species; Part II. Psychological Origins and Consequences of Objections to Human Germline Modification: 6. Psychological essentialism; 7. Envy; Part III. Human Germline Modification and the Law: 8. Existing laws and regulations; 9. Future laws and regulations; 10. Prohibiting human germline modification harms scientists and science, parents, children, foreigners, and society; Conclusion.

THE INVENTION OF THE PASSPORT Surveillance, Citizenship and the State Second edition

John C. Torpey City University of New York, Graduate Center

This book presents the first detailed history of the modern passport and why it became so important for controlling movement in the modern world. It explores the history of passport laws, the parliamentary debates about those laws and the social responses to their implementation. The author argues that modern nation-states and the international state system have ‘monopolized the ‘legitimate means of movement’,’ rendering persons dependent on states’ authority to move about – especially, though not exclusively, across international boundaries. This new edition reviews other scholarship, much of which was stimulated by the first edition, addressing the place of identification documents in contemporary life. It also updates the story of passport regulations from the publication of the first edition, which appeared just before the terrorist attacks of 9/11, to the present day.

July 2018 228 x 152 mm 280pp 978-1-108-47390-3 Hardback £71.99

CONTENTS

WHY IT WILL SELL • Describes how states really govern their populations to advance a new perspective and challenge many abstract writings about states and government control • Illustrates how identification documents are the central actor in the way government works and calls into question the importance of ideas alone in understanding how states rule • Explores in detail how people argued about the role of passports in controlling population movements and makes clear how important passports have been held to be in governing populations

September 2018 228 x 152 mm 560pp 33 b/w illus.   978-1-108-47097-1 Hardback £69.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Addresses the concerns of the sceptics and critics of evolutionary social-science approaches and clarifies that genetic and nongenetic evolution share many similarities – justifying the term evolution – while they also differ in important ways • Presents the material in an accessible, not overly technical way, using a ‘box format’ to address specific topics and allow detailed explanations • Offers concise accounts of generalised evolutionary thinking and evolutionary biology, including non-technical treatments of advanced topics

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Both natural and cultural selection played an important role in shaping human evolution. Since cultural change can itself be regarded as evolutionary, a process of gene-culture coevolution is operative. The study of human evolution – in past, present and future – is therefore not restricted to biology. An inclusive comprehension of human evolution relies on integrating insights about cultural, economic and technological evolution with relevant elements of evolutionary biology. In addition, proximate causes and effects of cultures need to be added to the picture – issues which are at the forefront of social sciences like anthropology, economics, geography and innovation studies. This book highlights discussions on the many topics to which such generalised evolutionary thought has been applied: the arts, the brain, climate change, cooking, criminality, environmental problems, futurism, gender issues, group processes, humour, industrial dynamics, institutions, languages, medicine, music, psychology, public policy, religion, sex, sociality and sports.

CONTENTS Part I. Prevue: 1. Making the improbable probable; 2. The world according to evolution; Part II. Evolutionary Biology: 3. Pre-Darwinism, Darwinism and neo-Darwinism; 4.

MUSIC AND POLITICS A Critical Introduction

James Garratt University of Manchester

This book is not about music or politics. It is about the ‘and’ that binds them together. How do these fields intersect, and what theories and approaches can help us understand their interactions? How have the relationships between music and politics changed over time and across cultures, and are the familiar tools we use in dealing with them fit for purpose? This book overhauls our understanding of how these fields interact, offering a rigourous reappraisal of key concepts such as power, protest, resistance, subversion, propaganda and ideology. It explores and evaluates a wide range of perspectives from contemporary political theory, engaging with an array of musical cultures and practices from medieval chant to rap. In addition, it discusses current ways in which the relationships between music and politics are being reconfigured and reconceptualised. Where else can you find Donald Trump, Kendrick Lamar and Beethoven under one cover?

CONTENTS 1. Music and politics: key concepts and issues; 2. Power and counterpower; 3. History, ideology and the politics of context; 4. Propaganda, ritual and sovereign power; 5. Performing protest: music and activism; 6. Critique, subversion and negation; 7. Nationalism, racism and fascism.

WHY IT WILL SELL • The first philosophy of language textbook on the market to cater to both linguists and philosophers • Enables linguistics and philosophers to identify topics of shared concern and areas for collaboration • Provides a comprehensive glossary of terms, void of unnecessary jargon • Includes a complimentary website of additional resources including handouts for in class use and discussion questions

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

This unique textbook introduces linguists to key issues in the philosophy of language. Accessible to students who have taken only a single course in linguistics, yet sophisticated enough to be used at the graduate level, the book provides an overview of the central issues in philosophy of language, a key topic in educating the next generation of researchers in semantics and pragmatics. Thoroughly grounded in contemporary linguistic theory, the book focus on the core foundational and philosophical issues in semantics and pragmatics, richly illustrated with historical case studies to show how linguistic questions are related to philosophical problems in areas such as metaphysics, epistemology, and ethics. Students are introduced in Part I to the issues at the core of semantics, including compositionality, reference and intentionality. Part II looks at pragmatics: context, conversational update, implicature and speech acts; whilst Part III discusses foundational questions about meaning.

WHY IT WILL SELL • The essential simplicity of the main physical arguments are clearly distinguished from the mathematical technicalities

This compact Guide presents the key features of general relativity, to support and supplement the presentation in mainstream, more comprehensive undergraduate textbooks, or as a re-cap of essentials for graduate students pursuing more advanced studies. It helps students plot a careful path to understanding the core ideas and basics of differential geometry, as applied to general relativity, without overwhelming them. While the Guide doesn’t shy away from necessary technicalities, it emphasises the essential simplicity of the main physical arguments. Presuming a familiarity with special relativity (with a brief account in an appendix), it describes how general covariance and the equivalence principle motivate Einstein’s theory of gravitation. It then introduces differential geometry and the covariant derivative as the mathematical technology which allows us to understand Einstein’s equations of general relativity. The book is supported by numerous worked exampled and problems, and important applications of general relativity are described in an appendix.

CONTENTS Preface; 1. Introduction; 2. Vectors, tensors and functions; 3. Manifolds, vectors and differentiation; 4. Energy, momentum and Einstein’s equations; Appendix A. Special relativity – a brief introduction; Appendix B. Solutions to Einstein’s equations; Appendix C. Notation; Bibliography; Index.

September 2018 228 x 152 mm 492pp 6 b/w illus.   978-1-108-42522-3 Hardback £64.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • A sequel to the highly-acclaimed The Life and Death of Democracy (2009), the first full-scale history of democracy for over a century • Questions the dominant literature on democracy • Analyses the challenges and opportunities confronting contemporary democracies and democratic politics • Recommends a wide range of democratic innovations that will be of interest to scholars, policy makers, citizens and activists

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Democracy urgently needs re-imagining if it is to address the dangers and opportunities posed by current global realities, argues leading political thinker John Keane. He offers an imaginative, radically new interpretation of the twenty-first-century fate of democracy. The book shows why the current literature on democracy is failing to make sense of many intellectual puzzles and new political trends. It probes a wide range of themes, from the growth of cross-border institutions and capitalist market failures to the greening of democracy, the dignity of children and the anti-democratic effects of everyday fear, violence and bigotry. Keane develops the idea of ‘monitory democracy’ to show why periodic free and fair elections are losing their democratic centrality, and why the ongoing struggles by citizens and their representatives, in a multiplicity of global settings, to humble the high and mighty and deal with the dangers of arbitrary power, force us to rethink what we mean by democracy and why it remains a universal ideal.

September 2018 228 x 152 mm 418pp 11 b/w illus.   978-1-108-47286-9 Hardback £64.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Presents a novel theory of political order that fuses normative and ethical components • Offers cases studies of the US, Georgian Britain, and China to demonstrate the utility of the theory

Drawing on political theory, comparative politics, international relations, psychology and classics, Richard Ned Lebow offers insights into why social and political orders form, how they evolve, and why and how they decline. Following The Tragic Vision of Politics (Cambridge, 2003) and A Cultural Theory of International Relations (Cambridge, 2008), this book thus completes Lebow’s trilogy with an original theory of political order. He identifies long- and short-term threats to political order that are associated respectively with shifts in the relative appeal of principles of justice and lack of self-restraint by elites. Two chapters explore the consequences of late-modernity for democracy in the United States, and another chapter, co-authored with Martin Dimitrov, examines the consequences for authoritarianism in China. The Rise and Fall of Political Orders forges new links between political theory and political science via the explicit connection it makes between normative goals and empirical research.

CONTENTS 1. Political order; 2. Justice, solidarity, and order; 3. Why do order form?; 4. Why do order breakdown? 5. The United States: self-interest; 6. The United States: fairness vs equality; 7. Britain; 8. China; 9. Conclusions.

SALAFISM IN JORDAN Political Islam in a Quietist Community

Joas Wagemakers Universiteit Utrecht, The Netherlands

July 2018 229 x 152 mm 312pp 978-1-316-61525-6 Paperback £25.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Focuses specifically on Salafism in Jordan, giving readers an underacknowledged and under-explored perspective on this country, which has been so important in the development of global Salafism • Includes a comprehensive introduction to Salafism as a whole, making it accessible even to those unacquainted with the topic

Since the events of 9/11, Salafism in the Middle East has often been perceived as fixed, rigid and even violent, but this assumption overlooks the quietist ideology that characterises many Salafi movements. Through an exploration of Salafism in Jordan, Joas Wagemakers presents the diversity among quietist Salafis on a range of ideological and political issues, particularly their relationship with the state. He expounds a detailed analysis of Salafism as a whole, whilst also showing how and why quietist Salafism in Jordan – through ideological tendencies, foreign developments, internal conflicts, regime involvement, theological challenges and regional turmoil – transformed from an independent movement into a politically domesticated one. Essential for graduate students and academic researchers interested in Middle Eastern politics and Salafism, this major contribution to the study of Salafism debunks stereotypes and offers insight into the development of a trend that still remains a mystery to many.

CONTENTS Preface; Acknowledgements; Glossary; Notes on transliteration, names and dates; Part I. Ideology: 1. Global Salafi ideology; 2. Quietist Salafi ideology in Jordan; Part II. History: 3. The transnational history of Salafism in Jordan; 4. Fitna: quietist Salafi infighting in Jordan; 5. Quietist Salafism in Jordan after 9/11; Part III. Contestation: 6. Jihadi-Salafis join the fray; 7. The challenge of political Salafism.

THE APE THAT UNDERSTOOD THE UNIVERSE How the Mind and Culture Evolve

Steve Stewart-Williams University of Nottingham

September 2018 228 x 152 mm 378pp 978-1-108-42504-9 Hardback £20.00

The Ape that Understood the Universe is the story of the strangest animal in the world: the human animal. It opens with a question: How would an alien scientist view our species? What would it make of our sex differences, our sexual behavior, our child-rearing patterns, our moral codes, our religions, our languages, and science? The book tackles these issues by drawing on ideas from two major schools of thought: evolutionary psychology and cultural evolutionary theory. The guiding assumption is that humans are animals, and that like all animals, we evolved to pass on our genes. At some point, however, we also evolved the capacity for culture – and from that moment, culture began evolving in its own right. This transformed us from a mere ape into an ape capable of reshaping the planet, travelling to other worlds, and understanding the vast universe of which we’re but a tiny, fleeting fragment.

THE NEUROSCIENCE OF CREATIVITY Anna Abraham Leeds Beckett University

What happens in our brains when we compose a melody, write a poem, paint a picture, or choreograph a dance sequence? How is this different from what occurs in the brain when we generate a new theory or a scientific hypothesis? In this book, Anna Abraham reveals how the tools of neuroscience can be employed to uncover the answers to these and other vital questions. She explores the intricate workings of our creative minds to explain what happens in our brains when we operate in a creative mode versus an uncreative mode. The vast and complex field that is the neuroscience of creativity is disentangled and described in an accessible manner, balancing what is known so far with critical issues that are as yet unresolved. Clear guidelines are also provided for researchers who pursue the big questions in their bid to discover the creative mind. November 2018 228 x 152 mm 240pp 978-1-107-17646-1 Hardback £74.99

WHY IT WILL SELL • Provides effective strategies for preventing suicide • Explains divergent neuroscientific approaches to study complex behaviors • Uses evidence to refute farreaching myths that hinder suicide prevention

Nearly one million people take their own lives each year world-wide – however, contrary to popular belief, suicide can be prevented. While suicide is commonly thought to be an understandable reaction to severe stress, it is actually an abnormal reaction to regular situations. Something more than unbearable stress is needed to explain suicide, and neuroscience shows what this is, how it is caused and how it can be treated. Kees van Heeringen describes findings from neuroscientific research on suicide, using various approaches from population genetics to brain imaging. Compelling evidence is reviewed that shows how and why genetic characteristics or early traumatic experiences may lead to a specific predisposition that makes people vulnerable to triggering life events. Neuroscientific studies are yielding results that provide insight into how the risk of suicide may develop; ultimately demonstrating how suicide can be prevented.

CONTENTS 1. What is suicidal behavior, and can it be prevented?; 2. Stress, vulnerability, and suicide: the stress-diathesis model; 3. The dark side of the brain: neuroscience approaches to suicidal behavior; 4. Lethal signals: the molecular neuroscience of suicidal behavior; 5.

WHY IT WILL SELL • Develops the ecological, agricultural, and cultural dimensions to eating, and shows how eating is of profound existential and spiritual significance • Describes eating as a way to heal and renew communities and the earth

This book provides a comprehensive theological framework for assessing the significance of eating. Drawing on diverse theological, philosophical, and anthropological insights, it offers fresh ways to evaluate food production and consumption practices as they are being worked out in today’s industrial food economy. Unlike books that focus primarily on vegetarianism and hunger-related concerns, this book broadens the scope of consideration to include the sacramental character of eating, the deep significance of hospitality, the meaning of death and sacrifice, the Eucharist as the place of inspiration and orientation, the importance of saying grace, and the possibility of eating in heaven. Throughout, eating is presented as a way of enacting fidelity between persons, between people and fellow creatures, and between people and Earth. Food and Faith demonstrates that eating is of profound economic, moral, and spiritual significance. Revised throughout, this edition includes a new introduction and two chapters, as well as updated bibliography. The additions add significantly to the core idea of creaturely membership and hospitality through discussion of the microbiome revolution in science, and the daunting challenge of the Anthropocene.

CONTENTS Introduction: who is the you that eats?; 1. It’s about fidelity; 2. Thinking theologically about food; 3. The ‘roots’ of eating: our life together in gardens; 4. Eating in exile: dysfunction in the world of food; 5. Life through death: sacrificial eating; 6. Eucharistic table manners: eating toward communion; 7. Saying Grace; 8. Eating in heaven?

WHY IT WILL SELL • Addresses why both democratic and authoritarian governance have failed to promote more equitable development

The precipitous rise in global and national economic inequality, which the inexorable force of globalization promised to address with affluence and abundance for all, has returned with a vengeance. The problem of worsening socioeconomic inequality and how best to ameliorate this pernicious resurgence occupies center stage of national and international politics. This study investigates the coexistence of high rates of economic growth and unparalleled prosperity (including a review of the decline in poverty levels in China and India and many other developing countries) with rises in income and wealth inequality in the United States, China, and India. This book examines the overall effectiveness of the measures taken by these three countries to address such anomalies, and what they should do to tackle the problem of widening inequality. This study breaks new ground by providing an original comparative analysis of the challenges facing the world’s three major economies.

WHY IT WILL SELL • Proposes a unified theory of embodied cognition, drawing on several disciplines • Shows a way of reframing some hard problems in cognitive science • Has the potential to generate new research programmes

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Bodies and Other Objects is written for students, scholars and anyone with an interest in embodied cognition – the claim that the human mind cannot be understood without regard for the actions and capacities of the body. The impulse to write this book was a dissatisfaction with the inconsistent, and often shallow, use of the term ‘embodied cognition’. This text attempts to reframe cognitive science with a unified theory of embodied cognition in which sensorimotor elements provide the basis for cognition, including symbolic exchanges that arise within a society of agents. It draws ideas and evidence from experimental psychology, neuroscience, philosophy and anthropology in reaching the conclusion that human cognition is best understood as the means by which exchanges within a constantly evolving network of skilful bodies and objects are regulated so as to further human interests.

CONTENTS Introduction; 1. Reframing cognition; 2. Vision and action; 3. Tool use and tool incorporation; 4. Agency, objects and others; 5. Material cultures; 6. Language; 7. A synthesis: networks of human agents as physical symbol systems.

WHY IT WILL SELL • Delivers a timely conceptual and historical discussion of a neglected topic in the history of political thought • Develops new interpretations of key figures from the history of political thought in light of their engagement with the topic of flattery • Engages with a wide range of scholarship from classics, literature, political theory, history, and rhetoric

www.cambridge.org/rights foreignrights@cambridge.org

Flattery is an often overlooked political phenomenon, even though it has interested thinkers from classical Athens to eighteenth-century America. Drawing a distinction between moralistic and strategic flattery, this book offers new interpretations of a range of texts from the history of political thought. Discussing Cicero, Pliny, Castiglione, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Mandeville, Smith, and the Federalist/Anti-Federalist debates, the book engages and enriches contemporary political theory debates about rhetoric, republicanism, and democratic theory, among other topics. Flattery and the History of Political Thought shows both the historical importance and continued relevance of flattery for political theory. Additionally, the study is interdisciplinary in both subject and approach, engaging classics, literature, rhetoric, and history scholarship; it aims to bring a range of disciplines into conversation with each other as it explores a neglected – and yet important – topic.

CONTENTS Introduction; 1. ‘Suffer no man to be king’: friendship, liberty, and status in Roman political thought; 2. Without ‘superfluous ornament’: Castiglione, Machiavelli, and the performance of counsel; 3. ‘The Monarch’s plague’: the problem of flattery and Hobbes’s contingently unitary sovereign; 4. ‘The bewitching engine’: Mandeville and Smith on flattery, praise, and the origins of language; 5. ‘Flattering to young ambitious minds’: representing America in the ratification; Conclusion.

WHY IT WILL SELL

The First World War left a legacy of chaos that is still with us a century later. Why did European leaders resort to war and why did they not end it sooner? Roger L. Ransom sheds new light on this enduring puzzle by employing insights from prospect theory and notions of risk and uncertainty. He reveals how the interplay of confidence, fear, and a propensity to gamble encouraged aggressive behavior by leaders who pursued risky military strategies in hopes of winning the war. The result was a series of military disasters and a war of attrition which gradually exhausted the belligerents without producing any hope of ending the war. Ultimately, he shows that the outcome of the war rested as much on the ability of the Allied powers to muster their superior economic resources to continue the fight as it did on success on the battlefield.

CONTENTS

Smith’s experiments on two-person games • Uses twenty-first-century economic experiments to enliven and expound upon Adam Smith’s model of human sociality

While neo-classical analysis works well for studying impersonal exchange in markets, it fails to explain why people conduct themselves the way they do in their personal relationships with family, neighbors, and friends. In Humanomics, Nobel Prize-winning economist Vernon L. Smith and his long-time co-author Bart J. Wilson bring their study of economics full circle by returning to the founder of modern economics, Adam Smith. Sometime in the last 250 years, economists lost sight of the full range of human feeling, thinking, and knowing in everyday life. Smith and Wilson show how Adam Smith’s model of sociality can re-humanize twenty-first century economics by undergirding it with sentiments, fellow feeling, and a sense of propriety – the stuff of which human relationships are built. Integrating insights from The Theory of Moral Sentiments (1759) and the Wealth of Nations (1776) into contemporary empirical analysis, this book shapes economic betterment as a science of human beings.

CONTENTS 1. Humanomics spans the two worlds of Adam Smith: sociality and economy; 2. Words and meaning in Adam Smith’s world; 3. Conduct in the social universe; 4. Frank Knight preemptively settles the horse race; 5. Axioms and principles for understanding human conduct; 6. Propositions predicting context-specific action; 7. Propriety and sympathy in a rule-governed order; 8. Trust game discoveries; 9. The ultimatum game as involuntary extortion; 10. Designing, predicting, and evaluating new trust games; 11. Reconsidering the formal structure of traditional game theory; 12. Narratives in and about experimental economics; 13. Adam Smith’s program for the study of human socio-economic betterment: from beneficence and justice to the Wealth of Nations.

Emotions play a powerful role in close relationships. Significant progress has been made in understanding the temporal features of emotions associated with the development and maintenance of close relationships across the lifespan. This advancement has revealed further questions: which theories help conceptualize interpersonal emotion dynamics? What are the ways researchers can assess and model these dynamics? How do interpersonal emotion dynamics manifest in different close relationships? And do these emotion dynamics contribute to the maintenance or dissolution of relationships? Interpersonal Emotion Dynamics in Close Relationships addresses these and other questions by bringing together state-of-the-art perspectives from scholars widely recognized for their contributions to the study of emotions in relationships. Each chapter defines interpersonal emotion dynamics, reviews methodological or empirical work, and offers important directions for future research. This volume will be a valuable resource for students, researchers, and practitioners interested in understanding the role of emotions in relationships.

CONTENTS Introduction; 1. Conceptual approaches to studying interpersonal emotion dynamics; 2. A general framework for capturing interpersonal emotion dynamics: associations with psychological and relational adjustment; 3. Simplifying the complexity of interpersonal emotion dynamics with regression graphics; 4. Methodological approaches to studying interpersonal emotion dynamics; 5. Biological contributions to interpersonal emotion dynamics; 6. Physiological correlates associated with interpersonal emotion dynamics; 7. Interpersonal emotion dynamics within family relationships; 8. Interpersonal emotion dynamics within young adult and peer relationships; 9. Interpersonal emotion dynamics within intimate relationships; 10. Next steps towards understanding interpersonal emotion dynamics.

WHY IT WILL SELL • Proposes an innovative definition of resilience

Genealogy, Logics, and World Politics

Philippe Bourbeau Université Laval, Québec

What does it mean to be resilient in a societal or in an international context? Where does resilience come from? From which discipline was it ‘imported’ into international relations (IR)? If a particular government employs the meaning of resilience to its own benefit, should scholars reject the analytical purchase of the concept of resilience as a whole? Does a government have the monopoly of understanding how resilience is defined and applied? This book addresses these questions. Even though resilience in global politics is not new, a major shift is currently happening in how we understand and apply resilience in world politics. Resilience is indeed increasingly theorised, rather than simply employed as a noun; it has left the realm of vocabulary and entered the terrain of concept. This book demonstrates the multiple origins of resilience, traces the diverse expressions of resilience in IR to various historical markers, and propose a theory of resilience in world politics.

CONTENTS Introduction; 1. A Genealogy of resilience; 2. Resilience and security; 3. Resilience and migration; 4. Opening up a resilience research agenda; Conclusion.

• Presents a multidisciplinary genealogy of resilience

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

• Provides a unique and detailed conceptualisation of the relationship among resilience, security, and migration

and Karin Sternberg Cornell University, New York

February 2019 228 x 152 mm 335pp 1 b/w illus.  1 table   978-1-108-47568-6 Hardback c. £79.00

WHY IT WILL SELL • Provides a balance between older scientific approaches that have stood the test of time and ideas that are on the forefront of research • The book is authored by the most eminent researchers in the field of love across the world • Readers will be uniquely rewarded with a better understanding of their own relationships and those of others

NEW TO THIS EDITION

This is a much-needed development from the first edition that provides an update on the theory and research on love by world-renowned scientific experts. It explores love from a diverse range of standpoints: social-psychological, evolutionary, neuropsychological, clinical, cultural, and even political. It considers questions such as: how men and women differ in their love, what makes us susceptible to jealousy and envy in relationships, how love differs across various cultures? As the neuropsychological basis of love is examined, this study showcases what attracts people to one another, why love has developed the way it has over time, and what evolutionary purpose it serves. It also analyses why and when love relationships both succeed and fail, which means readers will be rewarded with a better understanding of their own relationships and those of others, as well as what can be done to build a lasting, loving relationship.

CONTENTS 1. Love as expansion of the self; 2. Entraining, becoming, and loving; 3. The evolution of love in humans; 4. Neuroimaging of love in the twenty-first century; 5. Love conceptualized as mutual communal responsiveness; 6. Love is political: how power and bias influence our intimate lives; 7. Love, desire, and sexual fluidity; 8. Everyday conceptions of love; 9. Passionate love; 10. Slow love: courtship in the digital age; 11. Styles of love; 12. An anthropologist goes looking for love in all the old places: a personal account; 13. A behavioral systems approach to romantic love relationships: attachment, caregiving, and sex; 14. When love goes awry (part 1): applications of the duplex theory of love and its development to relationships gone bad; 15. When love goes awry (part 2): application of an augmented duplex theory of love to personal and situational factors in jealousy and envy.
