The Lives of Things

Fiendish Puzzles and Impossible Interview Questions from the World’s Top Companies

Jose Saramago, The Portuguese Nobel Laureate Jose Saramago (1922-2010), was a novelist, playwright, and journalist. His numerous books, including the bestselling All the Names, Blindness, and The Cave, established him as one of the world’s most influential writers. He died in June 2010.

William Poundstone is the bestselling author of over ten bestselling non-fiction books, including Fortune’s Formula, the Amazon Editors’ pick for the #1 non-fiction book of the year in 2005. He has written for The New York Times, The Economist, Esquire, Psychology Today, and Harvard Business Review. You are shrunk to the height of a ten-pence piece and thrown in a blender. The blades start moving in sixty seconds. What do you do? If you want to work at Google, or any of the world’s top employers, you’ll need to have a convincing answer to this and countless other tricky puzzles. Are You Smart Enough to Work at Google? reveals the new extreme interview questions in the post-crash, hypercompetitive job-market and uncovers the extraordinary lengths the best companies will go to to find the right staff. William Poundstone guides readers through the surprising solutions to over a hundred of the most challenging conundrums actually used in interviews, as well as covering the importance of creative thinking, what your Facebook page says about you, and much more. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851689170, NZRP$39.95 Publish April 2012, 288 pages Oneworld Publications Business/Current Affairs Quantity

The Lives of Things collects Jose Saramago’s early experiments with the short story form, attesting to the young novelist’s imaginative power and incomparable skill in elaborating the most extravagant fantasies. Combining bitter satire, outrageous parody and Kafkaesque hallucinations, these stories explore the horror and repression that paralyzed Portugal during the harsh regime of Salazar and pay tribute to human resilience in the face of injustice and institutionalized tyranny. Beautifully written and deeply unsettling, The Lives of Things illuminates the development of Saramago’s prose and records the genesis of those themes that resound throughout his novels. $24.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844678785, NZRP$34.95 Publish April 2012, 128 pages Verso Fiction

The Divine Supermarket

Welcome to Your Child’s Brain

Travels in Search of the Soul of America

From in Utero to Uni

Malise Ruthven is a writer and historian of the Islamic world. He has been a scriptwriter with the BBC Arabic and World Series and has taught Islamic Studies and Comparative Religion at the University of Aberdeen, the University of California, and at Darthmouth. He is a frequent contributor to the New York Review of Books, among other publications, and is the author of several books, including Fury for God and Fundamentalism.

Sandra Aamodt is the former Editor-in-Chief of Nature Neuroscience, the top journal in the field of brain research. Her writing has appeared in The Times, among others. Sam Wang is Associate Professor of Neuroscience at Princeton University. He has published over fifty articles on brain function and plasticity in leading scientific journals. They are the authors of the award-winning Welcome to Your Child’s Brain.

Travelling in a battered camping van, Malise Ruthven set out across America in search of the manifestations - often bizarre and sometimes terrifying - of its religious spirit. The journey took him from the dark woods of Puritan New England to neo-Nazi cults in the Rockies; from Mormons and Snake-handlers to fundamentalist groups who challenge the teaching of evolution; fom Chanellers in California to the sexual and financial scandals surrounding millionaire TV preachers. The Divine Supermarket is his quirky and brilliantly-observed account of the journey, offering illuminating and humorous insights into the quirky soul of modern America. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781780760223, NZRP$32.95 Publish April 2012, 336 pages Tauris Parke Paperbacks Quantity Travel Writing

Neuroscientists Aamodt and Wang illuminate how children’s brains grow - and how they can be nurtured, scientifically, to reach their full potential. The authors investigate common child-rearing wisdom, exposing bad “brain training” products and the ways parents most influence a child’s personality. They explain why playing outside improves vision, why teenagers stay up late, and why learning a second language increases empathy. And they share amusing experiments that will let every parent watch a child’s grey matter at work. Filled with myth-busting facts and clever advice, this is an indispensable, entertaining guide to your child’s brain. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851689125, NZRP$29.95 Publish April 2012, 320 pages Oneworld Publications Parenting Quantity

Bayonets to Lhasa

Nick Stevenson is a Reader in Cultural Sociology at the University of Nottingham, UK.

Francis Younghusband and the British Invasion of Tibet

This book argues that if we look back at the history of the idea of freedom, then what we mean by it is far more contested than we might think. To what extent does freedom have a ‘social’ component, and how is it being reshaped by our dominant consumer society? Linking ideas of public and personal freedom, Stevenson explores complaints about ‘big brother’, the arrival of the business society and the erosion of democracy to show how our freedoms are far from secure. The book provides a compelling argument for linking it to other values such as equality and responsibility. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415664516, NZRP$29.95 Publish April 2012, 104 pages Routledge Sociology Quantity

9 781595 587725

As the recent U.S. financial crisis unfolded, reporters raced to cover an unfamiliar cast of characters and an alphabet soup of derivatives and toxic financial instruments. Ironically, the business of mainstream media grappled with collapsing ad revenues and falls in circulation. Faulted for cheerleading coverage that helped create the bubble, the business media came under siege from commentators across the political spectrum. The role of the business press in the current crisis strikes at the heart of the heated debate about the media’s role as guardians of our democratic society. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781595587725, NZRP$32.95 Publish April 2012, 240 pages The New Press Quantity Current Affairs/Journalism

The British invasion of Tibet in 1904 is one of the strangest events in British imperial history. Conceived by Lord Curzon as a strategic move in the Greate Game, the incursion was in fact ill-conceived and inspired by only the weakest of motivations.

Christopher Doran is a long-time activist and writer.

Chris Doran provides a unique perspective, arguing that the drive to war came from the threat Iraq might have posed to American economic hegemony if the UN sanctions regime had ended. Doran argues that this hegemony is rooted in third-world debt and corporate market access. It was protection of these arrangements that motivated US action, not Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction or a simplistic desire to seize its oil.

Adrian Lewis, University of Kansas, USA.

The focus of this modern edition is not the vivid history of Marx and Engels’ most important work. The author identifies the insights which underpin the Manifesto’s startling contemporary relevance: the recognition of capitalism as a world system capable of marshalling production on a global scale; its devastating impact on all aspects of human existence and the distribution of wealth; and the understanding that, far from being a stable, immutable system, it is, on the contrary, susceptible to enormous convulsions and crisis, and contains the seeds of its own destruction. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844678761, NZRP$17.95 Publish April 2012, 96 pages Verso Quantity History & Philosophy

Evo Morales, leader of the MAS, became the first indigenous president of the country. Kepa Artaraz looks at the attempt to ‘refound the nation’ which the newgovernment has made its goal.

The author introduces and assesses the key arguments of Being and Time under three headings-pragmatism, existentialism, and temporality-its three levels of analysis of human experience. Subsequent chapters introduce Heidegger’s later philosophy, including his turn towards a historical account of being, and new ideas about how we need to ‘think’ to get the truth about it; his influential writings on language, art, and poetry, and their role in the Western history of being; and his claim that this history has culminated in a technological relation to things that is deeply problematic. $39.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415350716, NZRP$49.00 Publish April 2012, 408 pages Routledge Quantity History & Philosophy

Carl Gustav Jung was the pioneering founder of analytical psychology, a form of analysis that has revolutionised the approach to mental illness and the study of the mind. This book considers 17 of Jung’s most important papers covering the nature of the psyche, archetypes, religion and culture, therapy and healing.

This book is a lyrical and aphoristic critique of the “society of the spectacle” from the point of view of individual experience. A leading member of the Situationist International, Raoul Vaneigem names and defines the alienating mundanities of consumer society: survival rather than life, the call to sacrifice, the cultivation of false needs, the dictatorship of the commodity, the oppressiveness of social roles, and above all the replacement of God by the Economy. He also explores the countervailing impluses that persist within the deepest alienation: creativity, spontaneity, poetry, and the drive that leads from isolation to communication and participation. $34.00 Pb, ISBN 9781844678914, NZRP$43.00 Publish April 2012, 304 pages Verso Quantity History & Philosophy

Sexuality in Medieval Europe

Hegel and the Shadow of Dialectical Materialism

Doing Unto Others, Second Edition

Slavoj Zizek, University of London, UK.

Challenging the way the Middle Ages have been treated in general histories of sexuality, the author shows that there was no single medieval attitude towards sexuality. The priest and the penitent have their roles to play, but set here in a wider context these figures take on new dimensions. Focusing on acceptable marital sexual activity as well as what was seen as transgressive, the chapters cover such topics as chastity, the role of the church, and nonreproductive activity. Combining an overview of research on the topic with original interpretations, now updated with the latest scholarship and additional material from medieval Christian Europe, Jewish medieval culture and the Islamic world. $49.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415693899, NZRP$64.00 Publish April 2012, 230 pages Routledge Quantity History & Philosophy

Ruth Mazo Karras, University of Minnesota, UK.

Hegel’s absolute idealism has become the bogey man of philosophy, obscuring the fact that he is the dominant philosopher of the epochal historical transition to modernity; a period with which our own time shares startling similarities. Today, as global capitalism comes apart at the seams, we are entering a new transition. In Less Than Nothing, the pinnacle pubication of a distinguished career, Slavoj Zizek argues that it is imperative that we not simply return to Hegel but that we repeat and exceed his triumphs, overcoming his limitations by being even more Hegelian than the master himself. $115.00 Hb, ISBN 9781844678976, NZRP$145.00 Publish April 2012, 1200 pages Verso Quantity History & Philosophy

From Charles de Gaulle to Nicolas Sarkozy

Women and Gender in Postwar Europe

John Gaffney, Aston University, Birmingham, UK.

From Cold War to European Union

When de Gaulle came to power in 1958, the focus on an exceptional individual meant that he was able to confer a very particular style of leadership. He increased the scope for personal leadership and the emphasis upon the leader. This had major implications for the republic’s institutions and for the role of political parties. The five Presidents who came after him as well as contenders for the presidency - have each capitalized upon their own political ‘persona’ and their relationship to the French people. Gaffney takes a new approach to the subject, looking at the mythological and institutional conditions of political performance. $46.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230360372, NZRP$58.00 Publish April 2012, 272 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity History & Philosophy

This book charts the involvement of women in postwar reconstruction through the Cold War and post Cold-War years with chapters on the economic, social, and political dynamism that characterized Europe from the 1950s onwards, and goes on to look at the woman’s place in a rebuilt Europe. The chapters both look at trends across both eastern and western Europe; but also present individual case studies that illustrate those broad trends in the historical development of women’s lives and gender roles. $62.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415695008, NZRP$78.00 Publish April 2012, 296 pages Routledge Quantity History & Philosophy

Real-Time Diplomacy

Why Employment Tribunals Fail Workers and What Can be Done

Politics and Power in the Social Media Era

David Renton is a barrister at Garden Court chambers in London.

Real-Time Diplomacy explores the media’s role in the process of political change. In light of the events of 2011, this book examines how diplomacy has evolved as media have gradually reduced the time available to policy makers. It analyzes the workings of real-time diplomacy and the opportunity for media-centered diplomacy programs that bypass governmets and directly engage foreign citizens. $37.00 Hb, ISBN 9780230339439, NZRP$48.00 Publish April 2012, 352 pages Palgrave Macmillan Current Affairs & Politics

David Renton gives a practical and critical guide to the tribunal system. Far from bringing flimsy cases, two-thirds of claimants succeed at the hearing. Average awards are just a few thousand pounds - scant consolation for a loss of employment and often serious psychological suffering. The book includes a critique of the present government’s proposals to reform the Tribunal system. Employment Tribunals are often seen by workers as the last line of defence against unfairness in the workplace. $46.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745332550, NZRP$58.00 Publish April 2012, 200 pages Pluto Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

United States Politics Anglo-America and its Discontents

Rebel Cities

Civilizational Identities beyond West and East

From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution

Peter J. Katzenstein, Cornell University, USA.

David Harvey, City University of New York, USA.

Bridging the European and the American West, Anglo-America is distinctive, not unique. These multiple Wests coexist with each other and with other civilizations, as parts of one global civilization containing multiple modernities. And like all other civilizations, Anglo-America is marked by multiple traditions and internal pluralism. Once deeply held notions and practices of imperial rule and racial hierarchy now take the form of hegemony or multilateralism and politically contested versions of multiculturalism. $57.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415809559, NZRP$72.00 Publish April 2012, 256 pages Routledge

Cities have long been the pivotal sites of political revolutions. At the same time, they are also the centers of capital accumulation, and therefore the frontline for struggles over who has the right to the city and who dictates the quality and organization of the daily life. Rebel Cities places the city at the heart of both capital and class struggles, looking at locations ranging from Johannesburg to Mumbai. By exploring how city must be reorganized in more socially just and ecologically sane ways, David Harvey argues that cities can become the focus for anti-capitalist resistance. $22.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844678822, NZRP$29.95 Publish April 2012, 112 pages Verso

Why It’s So Hard to End Poverty in America

Ross Perlin is a writer for New York Times.

Peter Edelman, Georgetown University Law Center, USA.

Ross Perlin’s book is the first expose of the exploitative world of internship, and its hardcover publication precipitated a torrent of media coverage in the US and UK. In this witty, astonishing, and serious investigative work, Perlin profiles fellow interns, talks to academics and professionals about what unleashed this phenomenon, and explains why the intern boom is preventing workplace practices around the world.

The author offers an informed analysis of how this country can be so wealthy yet have a steadily growing number of unemployed and working poor. The structure of today’s economy has stultified wage growth for half of America’s workers-with even worse results at the bottom and for people of color-while bestowing billions on those at the top. So Rich, So Poor delves into what is happening to the people behind the statistics, and takes a particular look at the continuing crisis of young people of color, whose possibility of a productive life too often is lost on their way to adulthood. $37.00 Hb, ISBN 9781595587855, NZRP$47.00 Publish April 2012, 208 pages The New Press

Folk singer and folk music collector, writer, painter, journalist, art critic, whalerman, sheep station roustabout, Marxist, and much more - this is the story of A. L. (Bert) Lloyd’s extraordinary life. A. L. Lloyd played a key part in the folk music revival of the 1950s and 60s, . Dave Arthur documents how Lloyd became a member of the Communist Party, forceful antifascist, trade unionist and an important part of left-wing culture from the early 1930s to his death in 1982.

Bill Moyers Journal

Brian Wilson

The Conversation Continues

Kirk Curnutt, Troy University Montgomery, USA.

Bill Moyers was a founding organizer of the Peace Corps.

This is the first study of Wilson to eschew chronology for a topical organization that allows discussion of lyrical themes and musical motifs outside of any prejudicial presumptions about their place in the trajectory of his career. The chapter on lyrics explores questions of quality, asking why the words to Wilson’s songs are often considered a detriment, before surveying such tendencies as melancholy and introspection. The section on music focuses on his falsetto, the famous harmonies, the peculiar whiteness of the Beach Boys’ sound, as well as song structure. A final chapter on iconicity asks how rock criticism’s investment in auteurship both maintains and limits his reputation. $32.95 Pb, ISBN 9781845536633, NZRP$39.95 Publish April 2012, 160 pages Equinox Publishing Biography Quantity

Funk emerged in the mid-1960s, at the very apex of the civil-rights movement. John Scannell argues that this was no coincidence.

Art Philip Wilson Publishers

Earls Court Photographers Catherine Farrell

For forty years, Philip Wilson Publishers (PWP) has specialised in producing authoritative, finely designed art and illustrated books. With over seven hundred works to its credit, the company still concentrates on its original specialisation: catalogues raisonnés, monographs, private collection and exhibition catalogues, and museum guides. PWP’s concentration on the publication of exhibition catalogues has seen it collaborate with many well known private collectors and public museums, including Baron ThyssenBornemisza, The Phillips Collection, and The Frick Collection. These exhibition catalogues have been particularly successful over the years because of PWP’s unfailing ability to achieve two quite different things with each one: a record of an exhibition at a particular point in time, and a reference work whose scope and utility have a lasting value.

This book reveals the West London district of Earls Court as an area of diverse people and cultures. Insightful and lively photographs taken at street level use the variety of backdrops afforded by Victorian and Edwardian architecture to frame their subjects. The connecting thread is a pursuit of movement, capturing fleeting, apparently un-newsworthy moments of peopl at work and play in their everyday lives. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781781300039, NZRP$39.95 Publish April 2012, 72 pages Philip Wilson Publishers Art

Disposable Youth Racialized Memories, and the Culture of Cruelty

Rapid Climate Change

Henry A. Giroux, McMaster University, Canada.

Scott G. McNall, California State University, USA.

Causes, Consequences, and Solutions

Young people today are caught between the discourses of consumerism and a powerful crimecontrol-complex, and are viewed increasingly as commodities. Disposable Youth explores the current conditions of young people now face within an emerging culture of privatization, insecurity, and commodification and raises some important questions regarding the role that educators, young people, and concerned citizens might play in challenging the plight of young people, while deepening and extending the promise of a better future and a viable democracy. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415508131, NZRP$19.95 Publish April 2012, 64 pages Routledge

Climate change is a "wicked" problem bound up with problems of population growth, environmental degradation, and world problems of growing social and economic inequality. The book explores the politicization of the topic, the polarization of opinion, and the reasons why, for some, science has become just another ideology to be contested. How do humans assess risk? Why are they are so bad at focusing on the future? How can we solve the problem of climate change? These are the questions this work answers. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415892032, NZRP$19.95 Published March 2011, 104 pages Routledge

Outsourcing The Womb

The Search for Control and Self-Reliance in the 21st Century

Race, Class and Gestational Surrogacy in a Global Market

Kevin Wehr, California State University, USA.

France Winddance Twine

From the driveway mechanic to the backyard gardener, many diverse people are “doing it themselves” by building or repairing the stuff of their daily. This book uses Habermas’s colonization of the lifeworld as a frame and mobilizes Marx’s concepts of alienation and mystification to examine how social behaviors can be a conscious reply to a complex and fast-moving world, a nostalgia for simpler times past, or a just an economic impulse. Each main chapter is anchored by an extended empirical example: back-to-theland, home-schooling, and self-government. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415508711, NZRP$19.95 Publish April 2012, 64 pages Routledge

This book provides a critical introduction to the global surrogacy market. A comparative analysis of the assisted reproductive technology and surrogacy industry in Egypt, Israel, India and the United States disentangles the intersecting roles of race, religion, class inequality, religious law, and global capitalism. Gestational surrogacy challenges the idea of ‘natural’ reproduction and of the meaning of parenthood. What role should the state play in providing individuals and families with access to reproductive technologies? This book concludes with a discussion of ‘reproductive justice’. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415892025, NZRP$19.95 Published March 2011, 78 pages Routledge

The Triumph of Corporate and Military Power

Due process protections are among the most important Constitutional protections in the United States, yet they do not apply to non-citizens facing detention and deportation. The book describes the consequences of this lack of due process through the stories of deportees and detainees. People who have lived in the United States have been detained and deported for minor crimes, without regard for constitutional limits on disproportionate punishment. The court’s insistence that deportation is not punishment does not align with the experiences of deportees. For many, deportation is one of the worst imaginable punishments. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415509305, NZRP$19.95 Publish April 2012, 48 pages Routledge Social Issues

Empire Versus Democracy

Tanya Golash-Boza,University of Kansas, USA.

Carl Boggs, National University Los Angeles, USA. The author traces the authoritarian trajectory of American politics since World War II, with emphasis on the growing concentration of corporate and military power that has accompanied the United States assumption of leading superpower on the world scenes. Boggs shows that enlargement of U.S. imperial power has resulted in a decline of civic engagement and local participation along with skewed priorities favoring the war economy and security state. Inevitably, this has meant a weakening of electoral and legislative politics. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415892018, NZRP$19.95 Published March 2011, 84 pages Routledge Century Social Issues

Presentations of Self in the Internet Age

Ben Agger, University of Texas at Arlington.

Ben Agger, University of Texas at Arlington.

People ‘overshare’ when they interact with others through the screens of computers and smartphones. Text messaging, Facebooking, tweeting, camming, blogging, online dating, and internet porn are vehicles of this oversharing, which blurs the boundary between public and private life. This book examines these ‘presentations of self’, acknowledging that we are now much more public about what used to be private. The book concludes with reflections on the impact of oversharing on identity, friendship, sexuality, family and democracy, and suggests steps people can take to re-establish the boundary between public and personal life. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415509121, NZRP$19.95 Publish April 2012, 64 pages Routledge

When a large majority of members in diverse social classes have reservoirs of positive emotional energy, these emotions work to legitimate macrostructures and to build people’s commitments to societies. When, however, significant numbers of persons in lower social classes, and at times in middle to upper social classes as well, reveal reservoirs of negative emotional energy, they are likely to de-legitimate key institutional systems and, under specifiable conditions, mobilize collective—often with violent outcomes. Thus, emotions are at the core of both integrative and disintegrative forces in societies. $14.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415892070, NZRP$19.95 Published March 2011, 86 pages Routledge

The book is both a history of these ideas and a political response to the common claim in art and popular political discourse that we are “beyond” or “post-” identity. In challenging this latter claim, Seeing Differently critically examines how and why we “identify” works of art with an expressive subjectivity, noting the impossibility of claiming we are “post-identity” given the persistence of beliefs in art discourse and broader visual culture about who the subject “is,” and offers a new theory of how to think this kind of identification in a more thoughtful and self-reflexive way. $49.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415543835, NZRP$64.00 Publish April 2012, 304 pages Routledge Quantity The Arts
