Power and Terror

A Guide to the Neighborhood Cafés of Australia’s Harbor City

Conflict, Hegemony, and the Rule of Force

Globe-trotting and café-going writer and photographer Tamara Thiessen has spent the past decade as a freelance foreign correspondent, travel, and cultural writer. Backed by a Masters in international studies and several languages, she has written for a wide range of newspapers and magazines; she is also the author of the Bradt Travel Guidebook to Borneo (2009) and has worked as a writer and photographer on the Eyewitness Guides to France, Italy, and Australia and to Thames, and Hudson’s StyleCity Europe. When she thinks of home, she looks immediately to her suitcase and to the horizon of her next travels.

Noam Chomsky is a world renowned linguist and one of America’s foremost social critics. He is Institute Professor in the Department of Linguistics and Philosophy at M.I.T. He is the author of numerous books, including Pirates and Emperors Old and New, Fateful Triangle, The New Military Humanism: Lessons from Kosovo and Rogue States: The Rule of Force in World Affairs.

Superbly photographed, this book showcases unique and tasteful cafés in and around Sydney. In five decades, Australia has gone from a nation of tea drinkers to one of feisty, true-to-Italian-migrant espresso drinking. Café culture is engrained in a unique way into Sydney’s phenomenal harbour topography and colorful neighborhood character. From bayside to beachside, bohemian inner-city areas to the upbeat downtown, university zones and upper-class residential areas, each Sydney suburb has its own distinct flavor and café to match. Café Life Sydney explores how espresso culture has percolated up from its Italian roots to be an essential part of Australian lifestyle. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781420256673, NZRP$24.00 Australian Author Publish April 2011, 168 pages Palgrave Macmillan Café Guide Quantity

The ten years of US foreign policy since 9/11 have been characterised by war, torture and rendition. In Power and Terror, Noam Chomsky places these developments in the context of America’s long history of aggression and imperialism. Arguing that the US is responsible for much of the terror that it claims to be fighting, Chomsky elegantly explains US actions abroad and their deadly consequences. Including talks, question and answer sessions and unpublished essays, this collection offers the perfect introduction to Chomsky for those unfamiliar with his work, as well as a handy reference guide for seasoned activists. As Obama continues, and in some ways escalates, Bush’s militarism, Power and Terror is a timely reminder of why it is so important to insist that the United States lives up to the moral standards it demands of others. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780745331379, NZRP$29.95 Publish April 2011, 208 pages Pluto Quantity Current Affairs


The Sweetest Thing

Activist, philosopher, teacher, and leading voice of uncompromising dissent, Derrick Jensen holds degrees in creative writing and mineral engineering physics. His books include What We Leave Behind, Endgame volumes 1 and 2; As the World Burns with Stephanie McMillan; A Language Older Than Words; and The Culture of Make Believe.

A Boxer's Memoir

Jensen’s furthest-reaching book yet, Dreams challenges the “destructive nihilism” of writers like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris who believe that there is no reality outside what can be measured using the tools of science. He introduces the mythologies of ancient cultures and modern indigenous peoples as evidence of alternative ways of understanding reality, informed by thinkers such as American Indian writer Jack Forbes, theologian and American Indian rights activist Vine Deloria, Shaman Martin Prechtel, Dakota activist and scholar Waziyatawin, and Okanagan Indian writer Jeannette Armstrong. As in his other books, Jensen draws heavily from his own life experience living alongside the frogs, redwoods, snails, birds and bears of the upper northwest, about which he writes with exquisite tenderness. Having taken on the daunting task of understanding one’s dreams as a source of knowledge, Jensen achieves the near-impossible in this breathtakingly brave and ambitious new work. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781583229309, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 672 pages Quantity Seven Stories Press Popular Science & Environment 9 781583 229309

The Struggle for Palestinian Civil Rights

A Portrait of a Country

Omar Barghouti is an independent Palestinian commentator and human rights activist.

Henry James (1843-1916) was an iconic figure of 19th century literature.

From “Operation Cast Lead” to the recent assault on the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, both the severity and the notoriety of Israel’s many human rights abuses have begun to seep into the public consciousness and convince growing numbers of the apartheid nature of the Jewish State. Boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) efforts helped topple South Africa’s brutal apartheid regime. In this timely collection, Palestinian writer Omar Barghouti makes the case for a renewed campaign to force the state of Israel to uphold international law and universal human rights for the Palestinian people via a global academic, cultural, and economic BDS movement. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781608461141, NZRP$29.00 Publish April 2011, 220 pages Haymarket Books Quantity Current Affairs

Henry James left America for England in 1876 and remained in his adopted country for the next three decades. Arriving in Liverpool, he made his way first to London, the ‘dreadful, delightful city’, which he would come to both love and hate. He later set out to explore the English countryside: Chester, Warwick, Devon, Wells, Salisbury, Suffolk and Rye, where he eventually settled, bought Lamb House and wrote prolifically. First published in 1905, English Hours is one of Henry James’ most loved works of travel and a now-classic portrait of England by one of the great masters of 19th century literature. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848854857, NZRP$34.00 Publish April 2011, 224 pages Tauris Parke Paperbacks Quantity Travel

Empires at War gives a dramatic narrative account of how ‘Modern Asia’ came into being. Ranging over the whole of Asia, from Japan to Pakistan, the modern history of this important region is placed in the context of the struggle between America and the Soviet Union. Francis Pike shows that America’s domination of post-war Asia was a continuation of a 100-year competition for power in the region. He also argues cogently that Asian nations were not simply the passive and biddable pawns of the superpowers, but had a political development which was both separate and unique, with a dynamic that was largely independent of the superpower conflict. $44.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848858657, NZRP$53.00 Publish April 2011, 896 pages Quantity I.B.Tauris Publishers History

The assassin was never found and the case was closed. As a State Department counterterrorism special agent, Fred Burton reopened the case and pursued the killer.

In revisiting the events of 1914-1918 a century on, Jeremy Black considers how we now look at the impact of the conflict across the globe and how it came to be the First World War in our consciousness. The suffering and loss of the war provides much of its resonance and significance, but this book seeks to throw light beyond this, not least in asking how it ended in victory and defeat. Casting aside the conventional narrative, Jeremy Black investigates not only the key events of the war, but its consequences in restructuring the old order. $44.95 Hb, ISBN 9780826440938, NZRP$54.00 Publish April 2011, 312 pages Continuum Quantity History

The Essential Writings of the "People's Historian"

Paul O’Shea, St. Patrick’s College, Australia.

Timothy Patrick McCarthy, Harvard University. Introduction by Alice Walker and Afterword by Noam Chomsky.

The papacy of Pius XII (1939-1958) has been a source of near-constant criticism and debate since his death half a century ago, and central to this is the dispute surrounding his alleged silence during the years of the Holocaust. Drawing carefully and comprehensively on the historical record, Paul O’Shea convincingly demonstrates that Pius was neither an anti-Semitic villain nor a “lamb without stain.” Ultimately, Pius’s unfortunate categorization of the Jews as “lesser victims” points to the moral crisis within many parts of the fractured Christian Commonwealth as well as the personal culpability of Pacelli, the man and pope. $49.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230110809, NZRP$63.00 Publish April 2011, 304 pages Quantity Palgrave Macmillan History

Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa was Duke of Palma and Prince of Lampedusa.

The Inner Lives of Animals

The Leopard, published posthumously in 1958, was one of the most important works of fiction to appear in the Italian language in the twentieth century. Between 1925 and 1930, its author, Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa, wrote a number of letters to his cousins Casimiro and Lucio Piccolo in which he describes his travels around Europe (London, Paris, Zurich, Berlin). The letters, here published in English for the first time, display much of Lampedusa’s distinctive style present in his later work: not only the razor-sharp introspection, but also a wicked sense of humour, playful in its description of the comédie humaine. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781846881374, NZRP$29.95 Publish April 2011, 288 pages Alma Books Memoir Quantity

Living in the End Times

A Swamp Full of Dollars

Slavoj Zizek, University of London.

Pipelines and Paramilitaries at Nigeria’s Oil Frontier

In a major new analysis of our global situation, Slavok Zizek argues that our collective responses to economic Armageddon correspond to the stages of grief: ideological denial, explosions of anger and attempts at bargaining, followed by depression and withdrawal. After passing through this zero-point, we can begin to perceive the crisis as a chance for a new beginning. Or, as Mao Zedong put it, “There is great disorder under heaven, the situation is excellent.” Slavoj Zizek shows the cultural and political forms of these stages of ideological avoidance and political protest, from New Age obscurantism to violent religious fundamentalism. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844677023, NZRP$29.95 Publish April 2011, 352 pages Verso Philosophy Quantity

Through a host of characters, from the prostitutes of Port Harcourt to the Area Boys of Lagos, from the militants in their swamp forest hideouts to the oil company executives in London, Peel tells the story of this extraordinary country, which grows ever more wild and lawless by the day as its crude oil pumps through our cities. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848858404, NZRP$29.95 Publish April 2011, 256 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity Current Affairs

Confucianism presents the history and salient tenets of Confucian thought, and discusses its viability, from both a social and a philosophical point of view, in the modern world. Despite most of the major Confucian texts having been translated into English, there remains a surprising lack of straightforward textbooks on Confucian philosophy in any Western language. This book seeks to rectify this situation. It guides readers through the philosophies of the three major classical Confucians: Confucius (551-479 BC), Mencius (372-289 BC?), and Xunzi (fl. 3rd cent. BC), and concludes with an overview of later Confucian revivals and the standing of Confucianism today. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844651788, NZRP$45.00 Publish April 2011, 224 pages Acumen Publishing History & Philosophy Quantity

Bernard Porter, University of Newcastle, UK.

The present-day Foreign Office in Whitehall is an imposing building whose genesis is bizarre. In 1857 a competition was held to pick an architect, which provoked a huge row between the rival ‘Classical’ and ‘Gothic’ schools, which a ‘Goth’ (George Gilbert Scott) won - but was then forced to re-design in Classical. The circumstances surrounding this fiasco furnish the starting-point for this book; which then goes on to analyse the debate that preceded this decision, for the light it sheds on the complex nature of British culture and society then. The debate offers an unusual insight into the relationship between these matters and ‘high culture’ generally. $48.00 Hb, ISBN 9781441167392, NZRP$59.95 Publish April 2011, 224 pages Continuum Quantity History & Philosophy

In everyday life, we often suppose ourselves to be free to choose between several courses of action. But if we examine further, we find that this view seems to rest on metaphysical and metaethical presuppositions almost all of which look problematic. This book looks at how much of the structure of our everyday judgments can survive the arguments behind such questions and thoughts. In doing so, it explores the alternative arguments that have been advanced concerning free will and related notions, including an up-to-date overview of the contemporary debates. In essence, the book seeks to understand and answer the age-old question, ‘What is free will and do we have it?’ $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441102096, NZRP$39.00 Publish April 2011, 208 pages Continuum Quantity History & Philosophy

The Concept of Time presents Heidegger’s so-called Dilthey review, widely considered the first draft of his celebrated masterpiece, Being and Time. Here Heidegger reveals his deep commitment to Wilhelm Dilthey and Count Yorck von Wartenburg. He agrees with them that historicity must be at the centre of the new philosophy to come. However, he also argues for an ontological approach to history. The work reopens the question of history in a broader sense, as Heidegger struggles to thematize history without aligning it with world-historical events. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441105622, NZRP$45.00 Publish April 2011, 120 pages Quantity Continuum History & Philosophy

Andrew Fisher, University of Nottingham. Metaethics: An Introduction presents a very clear and engaging survey of the key concepts and positions in what has become one of the most exciting and influential fields of philosophy. Free from technicality and jargon, the book covers the main ideas that have shaped metaethics from the work of G. E. Moore to the latest thinking.

In this book, Weikart helps unlock the mystery of Hitler’s evil by vividly demonstrating the surprising conclusion that Hitler’s immorality flowed from a coherent ethic. Hitler was inspired by evolutionary ethics to pursue the utopian project of biologically improving the human race.

Empire and Nation in Nineteenth-Century America

Iris Murdoch was one of the best-known philosophers and novelists of the post-war period. Her leanings towards feminism can be detected in some of her most famous novels, but her philosophy suggests an ambivalence about sexual equality. In this book, Sabina Lovibond explores the tangled and controversial issue of Murdoch’s stance towards gender and feminism. Lovibond analyses Murdoch’s most famous novels and her key philosophical works. She argues that many of the issues need to be set against the greater context of a ‘social imaginary’ in which Murdoch’s work takes place. $43.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415429993, NZRP$54.00 Publish April 2011, 224 pages Routledge History & Philosophy Quantity

Jacques Rancière: An Introduction offers the first comprehensive introduction to the thought of one of today’s most important and influential theorists. Joseph Tanke explains how Rancière’s ideas allow us to understand art as having a deeper social role than is customarily assigned to it, as well as how political opposition can be revitalized. The book presents Rancière’s body of work as a coherent whole, tracing key notions such as the distribution of the sensible, the aesthetics of politics, and the supposition of equality from his earliest writings through to his most recent interventions. $36.00 Pb, ISBN 9781441152084, NZRP$44.95 Publish April 2011, 224 pages Continuum History & Philosophy

In this definitive historical investigation of the formation of liberalism from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries, Domenico Losurdo overturns complacent and self-congratulatory accounts by showing that, from its very origins, liberalism and its main thinkers have been bound up with the defense of the thoroughly illiberal policies of slavery, colonialism, genocide, racism and elitism. Losurdo probes the inner contradictions of liberalism, also focusing on minority currents that moved to more radical positions, and provides an authoritative account of the relationship between the domestic and colonial spheres in the constitution of a liberal order. $45.00 Hb, ISBN 9781844676934, NZRP$57.00 Publish April 2011, 384 pages Verso Quantity History & Philosophy

Origins of the Second World War

An Unfinished Revolution

An International Perspective

Robin Blackburn, University of Essex, UK.

Frank McDonough, Liverpool John Moores University.

Karl Marx and Abraham Lincoln exchanged letters at the end of the Civil War, with Marx writing on behalf of the International Working Men’s Association. In his introduction Robin Blackburn argues that Lincoln’s response to the IWA was a sign of the importance of the German American community as well as of the role of the International in opposing European recognition of the Confederacy. In addition to a range of key texts and letters by both Lincoln and Marx, this book includes Raya Dunaevskaya’s assessment of the impact of the Civil War on Marx’s theory and a survey by Frederick Engels of the progress of US labor in the 1880s. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844677221, NZRP$38.00 Publish April 2011, 160 pages Verso History & Philosophy Quantity

The Other Eighties

The Victims Return

A Secret History of America in the Age of Reagan

Survivors of the Gulag after Stalin

Bradford Martin, Bryant University, Rhode Island.

Stalin’s reign of terror in the Soviet Union has been called ‘the other Holocaust’. During the Stalin years, it is thought that more innocent men, women and children perished than in Hitler’s destruction of the European Jews. This book is the story of the survivors. Long kept secret by Soviet repression and censorship, it is now told by renowned author and historian Stephen F. Cohen, who came to know many former Gulag inmates during his frequent trips to Moscow over a period of thirty years. Based on first-hand interviews with the victims themselves and on newly available materials, Cohen provides a powerful narrative of the survivors’ postGulag saga. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9781848858480, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 224 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity History & Philosophy

Stephen F. Cohen, New York University.

In this engaging new book, Bradford Martin illuminates a different 1980s than we may remember - one whose history has been buried under the celebratory narrative of conservative ascendancy. Unlike the civil rights movement or flower power protesters, activists of the 1980s generally found themselves on the defensive, struggling to preserve hard-won victories from previous decades. Their successes, then, were not in ushering in a new era of progressive reforms but in prodding the government toward more moderate policy. Martin examines these influential movements in this concise history. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780809074617, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 288 pages Farrar Straus and Giroux Quantity History & Philosophy

In July 1888, fourteen hundred women and girls employed by the matchmakers Bryant and May walked out of their East End factory and into the history books. Louise Raw gives us a challenging new interpretation of events proving that the women themselves, not celebrity socialists like Annie Besant, began it. She provides unequivocal evidence to show that the matchwomen greatly influenced the Dock Strike of 1889, which until now was thought to be the key event of new unionism, and repositions them as the mothers of the modern labour movement. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441114266, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 288 pages Continuum Quantity History & Philosophy

The Wittgenstein Dictionary is a comprehensive and accessible guide to the world of Ludwig Wittgenstein, whose philosophy is notoriously difficult to grasp. Meticulously researched and extensively cross-referenced, this unique book covers all his major works, ideas and influences and provides a firm grounding in the central themes of Wittgenstein’s thought. It covers everything that is essential to a sound understanding of Wittgenstein’s work in logic, philosophy of mathematics, philosophy of mind and philosophy of language, offering clear and accessible explanations of often complex terminology and notation. $49.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441160249, NZRP$57.00 Publish April 2011, 240 pages Continuum History & Philosophy Quantity

Adopting an innovative multi-perspectival approach framed around a wide variety of material traces - from receipts to maps, name lists to photographs - Tim Cole tells stories of journeys into and out of Hungarian ghettos. These stories of the perpetrators who oversaw ghettoization and deportation, the bystanders who witnessed and aided these journeys, and the victims who undertook them reveal the spatio-temporal dimensions of the Holocaust. But they also point to the visibility of these events within the ordinary spaces of the city, the importance of an economic assault on Jews and the marked gendering of the Holocaust in Hungary. $48.00 Pb, ISBN 9781441169969, NZRP$59.95 Publish April 2011, 224 pages Continuum Quantity History & Philosophy

Dictators and Dictatorships is a qualitative enquiry into the politics of authoritarian regimes. It argues that political outcomes in dictatorships are largely a product of leader-elite relations. Differences in the internal structure of dictatorships affect the dynamics of this relationship. This book shows how dictatorships differ from one another and the implications of these differences for political outcomes. In particular, it examines political processes in personalist, military, singleparty, monarchic, and hybrid regimes. $59.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441173966, NZRP$69.00 Publish April 2011, 336 pages Continuum Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

The West has become obsessed with Muslims, constantly classifying them as either ‘moderate’ or ‘extreme’. Reacting against this dehumanising tendency, Jeremy Seabrook and Imran Ahmed Siddiqui show us the daily life of poor Muslims in India and sheds light on what lies behind India’s ‘economic miracle’. The authors examine life in Muslim communities in Kolkata, home to some of the most disadvantaged people in India, giving a voice to their views, values and feelings.

From State Building to PostDemocratization

Julian Petley, Brunel University. In this important book, several leading media commentators examine the phenomenon of “Islamophobia” and ask how to tackle it. Charting recent media controversies, from the Archbishop of Canterbury’s comments on Sharia law to the veil “debate”, the book argues that media hostility to Islam alienates Muslims and undermines efforts to combat extremism. With examples of press-fuelled myths about Islam in Britain, this is a captivating insight into how Muslims are depicted in the UK. $36.00 Pb, ISBN 9781851688128, NZRP$44.95 Publish April 2011, 320 pages Oneworld Publications Current Affairs & Politics Quantity

Suicide bombing has become a weapon of choice among terrorist groups because of its lethality and unrivalled ability to cause mayhem and fear, but what is the real driving force behind these attacks? For the first time, Suicide Bombings analyses concrete data from The Suicide Terrorism Database at Flinders University, Australia, to explain what motivates the perpetrators. The results serve to largely discredit common wisdom that religion and an impressionable personality are the principal causes, and show rather that a cocktail of motivations fuel these attacks which include politics, humiliation, revenge, retaliation, and altruism. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415588874, NZRP$54.00 Publish April 2011, 168 pages Routledge Current Affairs & Politics Quantity

Hadji Murat, one of the most feared and venerated mountain chiefs in the Chechen struggle against the Russians, defects from the Muslim rebels after feuding with his ruling Imam, Shamil. Hoping to protect his family, he joins the Russians, who accept him but never put their trust in him - and so Murat must find another way to end the struggle. Tolstoy knew as he was writing this, his last work of fiction, that it would not be published in his lifetime, and so gave an uncompromising portrayal of the Russians’ faults and the nature of the rebels’ struggle. In the process, he shows a mastery of style and an understanding of Chechnya that still carries great resonance today. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781847491794, NZRP$22.00 Publish April 2011, 192 pages Oneworld Classics Quantity Fiction

Tender is the Night

Only the Super-Rich Can Save Us

F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896-1940) is considered one of the finest American writers of the twentieth century.

Ralph Nader has challenged corporations, government agencies, and institutions to be more accountable to the public for the past 45 years.

While holidaying at a villa on the French Riviera, Dick and Nicole Diver, a wealthy American couple, meet the young film star Rosemary Hoyt. Her arrival causes a stir in their social circle and exposes the cracks in their fragile marriage.

This vivid fictional account by political activist and bestselling author Ralph Nader answers the question, “What if?” What if a cadre of superrich individuals tried to become a driving force in America to organize and institutionalize the interests of the citizens of this troubled nation? This extraordinary story, written by the author who knows the most about citizen action, returns us to the literature of American social movements - to Edward Bellamy, to Upton Sinclair, to John Steinbeck, to Stephen Crane - reminding us in the process that changing the body politic of America starts with imagination. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781583229231, NZRP$36.00 Publish April 2011, 464 pages Seven Stories Press Quantity Fiction

The Druggist of Auschwitz

The Pink Hotel

A Documentary Novel

Anna Stothard has written weekly columns in The Observer and The Sunday Telegraph.

Dieter Schlesak is a German-Romanian poet and essayist. In The Druggist of Auschwitz, Adam recounts with disturbing clarity his imprisonment at the infamous Auschwitz concentration camp. Through Adam’s testimony at the Frankfurt Auschwitz Trial of 1963-65, we come to learn of the true-life story of Dr. Victor Capesius, who quickly aided in and profited from the tragedy once the Nazis came to power. Interspersed with historical research and actual face-to-face interviews with survivors, the novel follows Capesius from his assignment as the “sorter” of new arrivals at Auschwitz through his life of lavish wealth after the war to his arrest and eventual trial. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9780374144067, NZRP$47.00 Publish April 2011, 384 pages Farrar Straus and Giroux Quantity 9 780374 144067 9 781846 881312 Fiction B E L O W T I T L E S A R E W I T H Y O U R PA N M A C M I L L

Yvvette Edwards lives with her family in East London. A Cupboard Full of Coats is her first novel.

Mark Mustian is an author, attorney, and city commissioner.

Crushed by an impossible shame, Jinx’s life has been little more than a shell; estranged from her husband, she is even relieved when he takes her young son with him. When Lemon, an old friend of her mother’s, turns up on her doorstep, Jinx is forced to confront her past, and with the pain of remembrance comes the possibility of redemption. But Lemon has his own secrets to share, and together they unravel an unforgettable family drama, stoked with violence and passion.

To those around him, Emmet Conn is an old man on the verge of senility. Now, at the end of his life, he finds himself tormented by dreams of a march across a foreign land, of appalling acts of cruelty, and the anguish of a lost love. But these are no dreams and he is no prisoner. The Gendarme is a love story that explores the power of memory, and the ability of people, individually and collectively, to forget. Depicting how love can transcend nationalities and politics, how racism creates divisions where none truly exist, and how the human spirit fights to survive even in the face of hopelessness, this is a superbly transcendent novel. $29.99 Pb, ISBN 9781851688265, NZRP$37.95 Publish April 2011, 304 pages Oneworld Publications Quantity Fiction

Palgrave Publicity Spotlight On….

On Tour

Celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday this month by giving the gift of one of Shakespeare’s last works to be printed Shakespeare’s Sonnets ($9.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230290419, NZRP$12.95) to someone special for Valentine’s Day.

Writer and filmmaker Tariq Ali will be visiting the Perth Writer’s Festival in early March 2011!

Shakespeare’s Sonnets deal with such themes as the passage of time, love, beauty and mortality and can be seen as a prototype, or even the beginning, of a new kind of ‘modern’ love poetry. The outstanding cross-cultural importance and influence of the sonnets is demonstrated by the large number of translations that have been made of them. To date in the German-speaking countries alone, there have been 70 complete translations since 1784. There is no major written language into which the sonnets have not been translated, including Latin, Turkish, Japanese, Esperanto, and even Klingon.

Tariq has written seven novels and over 20 books on world history and politics including Night of the Golden Bufferfly ($22.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844676545, NZRP$24.00) and The Obama Syndrome ($29.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844674497, NZRP$37.95). He has also penned a number of plays for stage and screen. He currently works as an editor for New Left Review and lives in London.

Visit events/pwf/tariq-ali/ for session information released on the 27th of January 2011.

The Revolutionary Century: Art in Asia, 1900-2000 “The self portrait by Tetsugoro Yorozu on the cover of Alison Carroll’s The Revolutionary Century brilliantly captures the sense of vibrant and restless experimentation which characterizes so much of the art covered in this volume.

The Craft of Writing Poetry

Yusef Komunyakaa is the author of thirteen books of poems.

Stephen Dobyns is the author of over 30 novels and poetry collections.

The latest collection from one of America’s preeminent poets, The Chameleon Couch is also one of Yusef Komunyakaa’s most personal to date. As in his breakthrough work, Copacetic, Komunyakaa writes again of music as muse. Beginning with “Canticle,” this varied new collection often returns to the idea of poem as hymn, ethereal and haunting, as Komunyakaa reveals glimpses of memory, myth, and violence. With contemplations that spring up along walks or memories conjured by the rhythms of New York, Komunyakaa pays tribute more than ever before to those who came before him. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9780374120382, NZRP$43.00 Publish April 2011, 128 pages Farrar Straus and Giroux Quantity Poetry

An American Renga

Uncollected Poems

Bob Holman and Carol Muske-Dukes, co-curators of the poetry stream of America: Now and Here.

James Schuyler (1923-1991) received the Pulitzer Prize for poetry for The Morning of the Poem.

Crossing State Lines: An American Renga is a poetic relay race across the continent: fifty-four poets responding to ideas of America - and to each other. This is a collaborative journey of impressions - from the election and inauguration of President Obama, through foreclosures, job losses, chords of country music, and bombs in Baghdad, to a poetsoldier’s rifle-sight in Afghanistan. The renga itself, in the ancient tradition of Japanese linked verse, provides the form of this historic conversation among the poets, as they meditate, within ten lines, on a moment in America. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780374532741, NZRP$27.00 Publish April 2011, 160 pages Farrar Straus and Giroux Quantity Poetry

Other Flowers brings together 165 unseen poems from James Schuyler, one of the twentieth century’s most acclaimed writers. This carefully arranged edition presents a broad range of Schuyler’s work, spanning from the early 1950s until his death in 1991. These poems exhibit Schuyler’s virtuosity in drawing from real life, interpersonal history, nature, and pop culture to create reverberant portraits of the everyday. To read these poems is to rediscover the fresh clarity and grandeur of even the smallest things. Other Flowers confirms Schuyler’s status as one of the most important figures in contemporary poetics. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780374532697, NZRP$29.00 Publish April 2011, 240 pages Farrar Straus and Giroux Quantity Poetry

Double Shadow

The Poetry of Rilke


Bilingual Edition

Carl Phillips is the author of ten previous books of poems.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926) is the author of two poetic masterworks, and Edward Snow, Rice University.

Comparing any human life to “a restless choir” of impulses variously in conflict and at peace with one another, Carl Phillips, in his eleventh book, examines the double shadow that a life casts forth: “now risk, and now / faintheartedness.” In poems that both embody and inhabit this double shadow, risk and faintheartedness prove to have the power equally to rescue us from ourselves and to destroy us. Spare, haunted, and haunting, yet not without hope, Double Shadow argues for life as a wilderness through which there’s only the questing forward-with no regrets and no looking back. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9780374141578, NZRP$39.95 Publish April 2011, 64 pages Farrar Straus and Giroux Quantity Poetry

Routledge Classics - Happy 10th! Routledge Classics Celebrates 10th Anniversary! 2011 sees the 10th anniversary of the Routledge Classics programme and will mark the publication of the 200th Routledge Classic, the onevolume edition of Karl Popper’s The Open Society and Its Enemies. This marks the first time The Open Society and Its Enemies has been published in a single paperback volume. Features a preface by Vaclav Havel and a 'personal recollection' on the story behind the book's publication by Ernst Gombrich. Routledge Classics contains the very best of Routledge publishing over the past century or so, books that have, by popular consent, become established as classics in their field. Drawing on a fantastic heritage of innovative writing published by Routledge and its associated imprints, this series makes available in attractive, affordable form some of the most important works of modern times. ”These are handsome, sturdy paperbacks. They are very good value indeed. Routledge … published many of the key texts of the 20th century, and the house now has a treasure-trove of titles in its backlist … the list is not endless, but it is awesome … and we must be grateful to Routledge for putting them back into general circulation. Just when it seemed that the great days of publishing were over, along comes this batch of masterpieces to disprove one’s gloomiest presentiments.” - John Banville, Irish Times

200th Classic!

The Open Society and Its Enemies

The Myths We Live By

Sir Karl Popper was one of the foremost philosophers of the Twentieth century.

Mary Midgley is a moral philosopher and the author of many books.

Written in political exile during the Second World War and first published in two volumes in 1945, Karl Popper’s The Open Society and Its Enemies is one of the most influential books of all time. Hailed by Bertrand Russell as a ‘vigorous and profound defence of democracy’, its now legendary attack on the philosophies of Plato, Hegel and Marx exposed the dangers inherent in centrally planned political systems and through underground editions become an inspiration to lovers of freedom living under communism in Eastern Europe. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415610216, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 896 pages Routledge Routledge Classics

Myths, as Mary Midgley argues in this powerful book, are everywhere. In political thought they sit at the heart of theories of human nature and the social contract; in economics in the pursuit of self interest; and in science the idea of human beings as machines, which originates in the seventeenth century, is a today a potent force. Far from being the opposite of science, however, Midgley argues that myth is a central part of it. Myths are neither lies nor mere stories but a network of powerful symbols for interpreting the world. The Myths We Live By reminds us of the powerful role of symbolism and the need to take our imaginative life seriously. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415610247, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 240 pages Routledge Quantity Routledge Classics

Bernard Williams is the author of many influential books. Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy is not only widely acknowledged to be Bernard Williams' most important book, but also hailed a contemporary classic of moral philosophy.

H.D.F Kitto (1897 - 1982) was a renowned British classical scholar. H.D.F Kitto argues that in spite of dealing with big moral and intellectual questions, the Greek dramatist is above all an artist and the key to understanding classical Greek drama is to try and understand the tragic conception of each play.

Georges Lefebvre (1877-1959) was one of the foremost historians of the twentieth century.

To Be a Jew deals with the question of the meaning and rationale that the writer Joseph Chayim Brenner attributes to Jewish existence. Many of Brenner’s readers assumed that Brenner completely negated Jewish existence and sought to form a new way of life completely disconnected from the traditional Jewish existence. Avi Sagi proves that not only did Brenner not reject the value of the Jewish existence, but the core of his creation was written out of a deep Jewish commitment. Brenner’s greatest innovation is found in his new conception of Jewish existence. $48.00 Pb, ISBN 9781441109736, NZRP$59.95 Publish April 2011, 240 pages Continuum Quantity Society & Culture

The Christian faith has the allegiance of one third of the human race. It has succeeded in influencing civilization to such a degree that we now take its existence almost for granted. How a provincial sect, with its seemingly outrageous ideas, became first the sanctioned religion of the Roman Empire and then, over the course of 2000 years, the creed of billions of people, is the improbable story that this book tells. Many introductions to Christianity are written by Christians, for Christians. This elegant textbook, by contrast, shows that the history of the religion, while often glorious, is not one of unimpeded progress, but something still more remarkable, flawed and human. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848853836, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 288 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity Society & Culture

In many cases, however, successes and failures, strengths and weaknesses have not been evaluated sufficiently systematically and comprehensively, and it has been difficult to gain an accurate picture of its implementation and the lessons to be drawn from this.

This book examines the crucial role the media has played in circulating and shaping national dialogues about race through demonstrations of crime and racialized violence. Jonathan Markovitz argues that mass media ‘racial spectacles’ often work to shore up racist stereotypes, but that they also provide opportunities to challenge prevalent conceptions of race, and can be seized upon as vehicles for social protest. This book explores a series of mass media spectacles revolving around the news, prime-time television, Hollywood cinema, and the internet that have either relied upon, reconfigured, or helped to construct collective memories of race, crime, and (in)justice. $59.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415883832, NZRP$76.00 Publish April 2011, 208 pages Routledge Quantity Society & Culture

How to Earn Nothing and Learn Little in the Brave New Economy

In this timely book, cultural critic Richard Dienst examines the current condition of indebtedness from a variety of angles, ranging from the financial crisis and global poverty to media politics and radical theory. Written in an engaging and forceful style, the book draws upon a surprising array of materials, including Obama’s national security strategy, the architecture of Prada stores, press photos of Bono, and a fairy tale told by Karl Marx. Moving beyond the dominant pieties and widespread anxieties surrounding the topic, Dienst reconceives indebtedness as a social, economic, and political bond, where the crushing weight of objectified wealth comes face to face with new demands for equality and solidarity. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844676910, NZRP$39.00 Publish April 2011, 176 pages Verso Quantity Business & Economics

Claude Lanzmann’s epic 1985 film Shoah is the distillation of more than 350 hours of footage gathered over eleven years. The film tells the story of the Holocaust through interviews with survivors of the extermination camps, bystanders who watched or participated in mass murder, and some of the perpetrators of genocide.

World Cinema and the Ethics of Realism

John Berger is one of the most internationally influential writers of the last fifty years. The seventeenth-century philosopher Baruch (Bento) Spinoza spent the most intense years of his short life writing - and also carried with him a sketchbook. After his sudden death, his friends rescued letters, manuscripts, notes, but apparently didn’t find a sketchbook. For years, John Berger has imagined Bento’s sketchbook being found and when one day a friend gave John a blank sketchbook he began to draw: not to try and illustrate Bento’s thoughts, but drawing, in Spinoza’s company, from life today, and telling stories and asking questions. A book of images and words, Bento’s Sketchbook is an exploration of the practice of drawing, about where and to what it leads. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844676842, NZRP$45.00 Publish April 2011, 128 pages Verso Quantity The Arts

James Paul Gee and Elizabeth Hayes, both Arizona State University. In this book, linguist James Paul Gee and educator Elisabeth Hayes deal with the forces unleashed by today’s digital media, forces that are transforming language and learning for good and ill. They argue that the role of oral language is almost always entirely misunderstood in debates about digital media. Like the earlier inventions of writing and print, digital media actually power up or enhance the powers of oral language. Gee and Hayes deal, as well, with current digital transformations of language and literacy in the context of a growing crisis in traditional schooling in developed countries. $44.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415602778, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 160 pages Routledge Quantity Literature

Literary Lost

Richard J. Lane, Vancouver Island University, Canada.

Sarah Clarke Stuart, University of North Florida. From the moment that Watership Down made its appearance on screen in season one, speculation about Lost’s literary allusions has played an important role in the larger discussion of the show. Fans and critics alike have noted the many references, from biblical passages and children’s stories to science fiction and classic novels. Literary Lost teases out the critical significance of these featured books, demonstrating how literature has served to enhance the meaning of the show. It provides a fuller understanding of Lost and reveals how television can be used as a tool for stimulating a deeper interest in literary texts. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441140807, NZRP$39.00 Publish April 2011, 176 pages Continuum Quantity Literature

Schopenhauer’s ‘The World as Will and Representation’

The Politics of the Siren

A Reader’s Guide

9 780826 438409

Robert Wicks, University of Auckland, New Zealand.

In this concise and illuminating study, Jacques Rancière examines the life and work of the celebrated nineteenth-century French poet and critic, Stéphane Mallarmé. Rancière presents Mallarmé as neither an aesthete in need of rare essences and unheard-of words, nor the silent and nocturnal thinker of some poem too pure to be written. Mallarmé is the contemporary of a republic that is seeking out forms of civic worship to replace the pomp of religions and kings. If his writing is difficult, it is because it complies with a demanding and delicate poetics. $29.95 Hb, ISBN 9780826438409, NZRP$39.00 Publish April 2011, 112 pages Quantity Continuum Literature

Your Daughter’s Bedroom

The View from Lazy Point

Modelling a Healthy Womanhood for Girls

A Natural Year in an Unnatural World

Joyce McFadden, psychoanalyst in private practice.

Carl Safina, Blue Ocean Institute.

In Your Daughter’s Bedroom psychotherapist Joyce McFadden argues that mothers loom large in the psyche of young girls and that, in their quest to create perfect daughters, mothers may be hurting them instead. By making offhanded comments that impair their daughter’s confidence or hiding facts about themselves as sexual women, mothers can unintentionally cause girls to feel isolated, left alone to confront their burgeoning sexuality during the most confusing time of their lives. Drawing on the personal testimonies of more than a thousand women, McFadden weaves together their stories about sexuality, self esteem, and the origins of their feelings. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230103627, NZRP$45.00 Publish April 2011, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Health & Lifestyle

He shows how problems of the environment drive very real matters of human justice, well-being, and our prospects for peace. In Safina’s hands, nature’s continuous renewal points toward our future. His lively stories grant new insights into how our world is changing, and what our response ought to be. $44.95 Pb, ISBN 9780805090406, NZRP$49.95 Publish April 2011, 416 pages Henry Holt and Company Quantity Science & Environment
