Marie Curie and Her Daughters The Private Lives of Science's First Family Shelley Emling has been a journalist for twenty years, and her works, including science articles, has previously appeared in The New York Times, USA Today, Fortune, Slate, The Wall Street Journal, The Times, The Huffington Post, FoxNews.com, etc. Marie Curie was the first person to be honored by two Nobel Prizes and she pioneered the use of radiation therapy for cancer patients. But she was also a mother, widowed young, who raised two extraordinary daughters alone: Irene, a Nobel Prize winning chemist in her own right, who played an important role in the development of the atomic bomb, and Eve, a highly regarded humanitarian and journalist, who fought alongside the French Resistance during WWII. As a woman fighting to succeed in a male dominated profession and a Polish immigrant caught in a xenophobic society, she had to find ways to support her research. Drawing on personal interviews with Curie's descendents, as well as revelatory new archives, this is a wholly new story about Marie Curie - and a family of women inextricably connected to the dawn of nuclear physics. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230115712, NZRP$44.95 Publish August 2012, 272 pages Palgrave Macmillan Biography/Science

Rethinking Reputation How PR Trumps Marketing and Advertising in the New Media World Fraser P. Seitel is the author of The Practice of Public Relations, which has sold over a million copies in 11 editions. John Doorley is founding academic director of the Master of Science Defree Program in Public Relations at New York University. Good public relations is no longer just icing - it's a strategic imperative more important to your competitive success than even advertising or marketing. This is true whether you're a century-old multibillion-dollar corporation or a penniless startup. In Rethinking Reputation, public relations guru Fraser Seitel and John Doorley, founder of the Academy for Communication Excellence and Leadership at Johnson & Johnson, examine a fascinating new set of case studies - including the BP oil spill and the launch of City Slips - to glean the PR dos and don'ts for the new media world, covering both standard reputation maintenance and crisis management. They also show start-up companies and entrenched organizations how to use the power of word-of-mouth to jump start business like never before. This is a wake-up call from two industry legends - for public relations professionals as well as entrepreneurs, CEOs, and anyone else tasked with representing their organizations to the world. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230338333, NZRP$44.95 Publish August 2012, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan PR/Business/Marketing

Simon Underdown is Senior Lecturer in Biological Anthropology, also at Brookes University, where his research looks at the extinction of Neanderthals. He has written about evolution for the Guardian. Anthropologists Joy Hendry and Simon Underdown offer the first introductory guide to explore both the biological and social approaches to the study of humanity, from the roots of the Homo genus, to the traits that all humans share, on the vast range of our sacred rituals. Hendry and Underdown bring anthropology to life with case studies, explaining why witchcraft was so feared in seventeenth-century England but is embraced in contemporary Sudan, as well as what our relationship with mobile phones (and the bathroom) tells us about ourselves. Covering key study topics, including hierarchy, social identity, rites of passage, and the impact of globalization, this is the essential first step to understanding anthropology, for students and people working in the globalized world, alike. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851689309, NZRP$29.95 Publish August 2012, 256 pages Oneworld Publications Anthropology

Brain Gain Technology and the Quest for Digital Wisdom Marc Prensky is an internationally acclaimed speaker, writer, and consultant in education and learning. He is the author of Digital Game-Based Learning, Don't Bother Me Mom - I'm Learning! and Teaching Digital Natives: Partnering for Real Learning. Prensky also writes a regular column for Educational Technology. The majority of people now use technology for everything. Yet, we're constantly questioning if this is truly a useful "crutch" or if we're merely dampening our own ability to think and remember. In Brain Gain, tech and education expert Marc Prensky shows that both the human brain and technology have strengths - our own cognitive function for sense-making and complex reasoning; technology for the ability to store and process large amouts of data. Drawing on the latest neuroscience and his own extensive research with cuting-edge experts in mind-machine combination, Prensky shows readers how smart people are now learning to improve our thinking power by using technology wisely, without losing our humanity. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230338098, NZRP$44.95 Publish August 2012, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Psychology/Technology

Savage Anxieties The Invention of Western Civilization Robert A. Williams Jr. is a member of the Lumbee Indian tribe as well as the professor of law and director of the Indigenous Peoples Law and Policy Program at the University of Arizona. From one of the world's leading experts on Native American law and indigenous peoples' human rights comes an original and striking intellectual history of the tribe and Western civilization that sheds new light on how we understand ourselves and our contemporary society. Throughout the centuries, conquest, war, and unspeakable acts of violence and dispossession have all been justified by citing civilization's opposition to these differences represented by the tribe. Robert Williams, award winning author, legal scholar, and member of the Lumbee Indian Tribe, proposes a wide-ranging reexamination of the history of the Western world, told from the perspective of civilization's war on tribalism as a way of life. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230338760, NZRP$49.95 Publish August 2012, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan History

Feature Titles The Silenced Majority Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope Amy Goodman is a multiple New York Times best-selling author and the host and executive producer of Democracy Now! and Denis Moynihan, since helping co-found Democracy Now! as an independent production company in 2002, has participated in the organization's growth, focusing primarily on distribution, infrastructure development, and coordinating complex live broadcasts from all continents (save Antarctica). He lives in Denver, Colorado. Amy Goodman and Denis Moynihan began writing a weekly column, Breaking the Sound Barrier, for King Features Syndicate in 2006. This timely new sequel to Goodman's New York Times bestseller of the same name gives voice to the many ordinary people standing up to corporate and government power-and refusing to be silent. The Silenced Majority pulls back the veil of corporate media reporting to dig deep into the politics of "climate apartheid," the implications of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the movement to halt the execution of Troy Anthony Davis, and the globalization of dissent "From Tahrir Square to Liberty Plaza." Throughout Goodman and Moynihan show the work of ordinary people to change their media and change the world. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781608462315, NZRP$29.95 Publish August 2012, 380 pages Haymarket Current Affairs/Social Science "Amy Goodman has taken investigative journalism to new heights of exciting, informative, and probing analysis." - Noam Chomsky

There and Back Again J. R. R. Tolkien in the Origins of the Hobbit Mark Atherton is Lecturer in English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford. He is the author of Teach Yourself Old English/Anglo Saxon and contributed to A Companion to J R R Tolkien (forthcoming). For decades, hobbits and the other fantastical creatures of Middle-earth have captured the imaginations of a fiercely loyal tribe of readers, all enhanced by the immense success of Peter Jackon's films: first The Lord of the Rings, and now his new The Hobbit. But for all Tolkien's global fame and the familiarity of modern culture with Gandalf, Bilbo, Frodo, and Sam, the sources of the great mythmaker's own myth-making have been neglected. Mark Atherton here explores the chief influences on Tolkien's work: his boyhood in the West Midlands; the landscapes and seascapes which shaped his mythologies; his experiences in World War I, his interest in Scandinavian myth; his friendships, especially with the other Oxford-based Inklings; and the relevance of his themes, especially ecological themes, to the present-day. There and Back Again offers a unique guide to the varied inspirations behind Tolkien's life and work, and sheds new light on how a legend is born. $44.95 Hb, ISBN 9781780762463, NZRP$54.95 Publish August 2012, 288 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Literary Studies/Popular Culture

True Blood Investigating Vampires and Southern Gothic Brigid Cherry is a Senior Lecturer in Film and Popular Culture at St Mary's University College. She is the author of Horror in the Routledge Film Guidebook series and the co-editor of Twenty-First-Century Gothic. As seen in HBO's True Blood, vampires have never been more edgy, gory or sexy. Since its arrival on screen in 2008, Alan Ball's adaptation of The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris has exploited the creative freedoms of the HBO brand and captured a cult audience with its passionate, blood-drenched visuals and stories. From viral webisodes depicting vampires announcing themselves on TV to the steamy title sequence and the show's uninhibited use of language, sex and gore, True Blood has quickly gained status as cult TV with bite. True Blood posed the question of what would happen if vampires 'came out of the coffin' and this book considers the representations of sexuality, race and class in a series that engages directly with prejudice and civil rights. It also considers True Blood's generic roots in television horror, paranormal romance and Southern Gothic, the wider contexts of fairy tales and religion, the marketing of the series and the activities of its fans. This book explores the hidden depths of True Blood's vampire bars, small town communities and haunted bayous. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848859401, NZRP$39.95 Publish August 2012, 224 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Popular Culture

Thousands of nuclear antiaircraft arms were designed, tested and deployed in the United States during Dwight D. Eisenhower's presidency. By recounting official actions, doctrinal decisions, and public policies, Continental Defense in the Eisenhower Era traces this armament from conception through deployment.

Lessons for Our Struggle
A History of History
Frances Fox Piven is the past Vice-President of the American Political Science Association and the recipient of numerous awards, including the President's Award of the American Public Health Association, and the American Sociological Association's Career Award for the Practice of Sociology, as well as their award for the Public Understanding of Sociology.
Alun Munslow, University of Chichester, UK. In a provocative analysis of European and American historical thinking and practice since the early 18th century, this book confronts several basic assumptions about the nature of history. Among these are the concept of historical realism, the belief in representationalism and the idea that the past possesses its own narrative. What is offered in this book is a far-reaching and fundamental rethinking of realist and representationalist â€˜history of a particular kind' by addressing and explaining the ideas of major philosophers of history over the past three hundred years and those of the key theorists of today. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415677158, NZRP$55.00 Publish August 2012, 200 pages Routledge History & Philosophy

The Imagination is Sartre's first full philosophical work, presenting some of the basic arguments concerning phenomenology, consciousness and intentionality that were to later appear in his master works and be so influential in the course of Twentieth century philosophy. Imagination does not involve the perception of â€˜mental images' in any literal sense, Sartre argues, yet reveals some of the fundamental capacities of consciousness. Sartre concludes with an important chapter on Husserl's theory of the imagination which, despite its sharing the flaws of earlier approaches, signals a new phenomenological way forward in understanding the imagination. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415776196, NZRP$49.95 Publish August 2012, 224 pages Routledge History & Philosophy Quantity

Harriet Atkinson, University of Brighton, UK.
Sophie Wahnich, Laboratoire d'anthropologie des institutions at des organisations sociales, France.
The Festival of Britain in 1951 transformed the way people saw their war-ravaged nation. Drawing on previously unseen sketches and plans, photographs and interviews, it travels beyond the Festival's spectacular centrepiece at London's South Bank, to show how the Festival made the whole country an exhibition ground with events to which hundreds of the country's greatest architects, artists and designers contributed. It reveals how all these exhibitions and also plays, poetry, art and films commissioned for the Festival had a single focus: to unite 'the land and people of Britain'. $41.00 Pb, ISBN 9781848857926, NZRP$52.00 Publish August 2012, 288 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers History & Philosophy

This book takes a new look at one of the most contentious periods in American history. The battles over schools that surrounded the famous Scopes "monkey" trial in 1925 were about much more than evolution. Fundamentalists fought to maintain cultural control of education.

For two hundred years after the French Revolution, the Republican tradition celebrated the execution of princes and aristocrats. The Revolution is no longer judged in terms of historical necessity but rather by 'timeless' standards of morality. The author explains how the institution of Terror sought to put a brake on legitimate popular violence to 'be terrible so as to spare the people the need to be so' and was subsequently subsumed in a logic of war. The Terror was "a process welded to a regime of popular sovereignty, the only alternatives, being to defeat tyranny or die for liberty." $23.00 Hb, ISBN 9781844678624, NZRP$29.00 Publish August 2012, 128 pages Verso Quantity History

Modernism and British Socialism
The Phenomena of Awareness
Thomas Linehan, University of York, UK.
Husserl, Cantor, Jung
The author offers a fresh perspective on late Victorian and Edwardian socialism by examining the socialist revival of these years from the standpoint of modernism. It identifies with a 'maximalist' reading of modernism, seeing the modernist mission as extending beyond the concerns of the literary and artistic avant-garde to incorporate political and social movements seeking to bring into being a new world and mode of existence. Much more than an aspiration for greater economic justice for working people, socialism sought to address some of the deep spiritual and cultural issues thrown up by the processes of modernisation and modernity. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230230118, NZRP$49.95 Publish August 2012, 192 pages Palgrave Macmillan History & Philosophy Quantity

David Ohana, Harvard University, USA.
Past and Present in Contemporary Culture
Building new mythologies was a main project in the emergence of national movements in the modern era. The Zionist project was part of the modern enterprise, and it represented the Promethean passion of Western man; it sought to establish a political reality in the image of the new Jew. In this addition to the Modernism and... series, David Ohana provides a new perspective on nationalism in general and Zionism in particular. In addition to the view of Zionism as a political theology and a national ideology, this book presents Zionism as a modernist project and a political mythology by means of three myths: those of Zarathustra, Nimrod and Prometheus. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230290129, NZRP$49.95 Publish August 2012, 216 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity History & Philosophy

Loyalty is a highly charged and important issue, often evoking strong feelings and actions. In a global era, should we be trying to transcend loyalties to particular political communities? Drawing on a fascinating array of literary and cinematic examples - The Remains of the Day, No Country for Old Men, The English Patient and more - Troy Jollimore expertly unravels the phenomenon of loyalty from a philosophical standpoint. He reflects on the idea that loyalty shapes our very identities, and considers both the benefits and the dangers of loyalty: on the one hand, how excessive loyalty can move us to perform immoral, even evil actions; on the other, how loyalty can expand our lives and give us a sense of meaning and belonging. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415782272, NZRP$39.95 Publish August 2012, 160 pages Routledge Quantity History & Philosophy

Paul Corthorn presents an illuminating, in-depth study of the British Left's response to the rise of international fascism in the 1930s. He uses a range of newly available archival sources to analyse how the Labour left - which took the form of the Socialist League between 1932 and 1937 - and the Independent Labour Party reacted to developments such as Mussolini's invasion of Abyssinia, Franco's uprising in Spain and Hitler's drive for territorial expansion. He argues that their responses to these threats from the fascist dictators were shaped above all by their constantly changing views of another dictatorship: the Soviet Union under Stalin. $58.00 Pb, ISBN 9781780760421, NZRP$73.00 Publish August 2012, 288 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity History & Philosophy

Laurence Cockcroft is a Founder of Transparency International.
The Maoist in India delves deep into one of the most intractable but under-reported insurgencies in the developing world - the decades-long battle between the Indian state and Maoist groups who control significant parts of tribal India. The book explains the devastating impact on India's tribal population of neoliberalism and armed aggression by the state, as well as the impact of the armed struggle by the Maoists.

The author argues that corruption has to be seen as the result of the interplay between elite 'embedded networks', greed and organised crime. He shows how the growth of corruption has been facilitated by globalisation, the integration of new and expanding markets into the world economy, and by the rapid expansion of 'offshore' financial facilities. These facilities provide a home to largely unregulated pools of finance derived from personal fortunes, organised crime and pricing malpractice in international trade. $58.00 Hb, ISBN 9781848859876, NZRP$73.00 Publish August 2012, 320 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

Meaning of Marxism
How Third Parties and Outside Movements Are Reshaping the Politics of the TwentyFirst Century
Jacqueline S. Salit is the President of IndependentVoting.org.
It is fashionable for pundits to declare every so often that Marxism is dead. As Daniel Singer aptly put it, their aim "is to doom as impossible a radical, fundamental transformation of existing society." The poverty, class inequality, war and environmental degradation that today's globalized capitalist system creates on an ever-expanding scale raises questions for which Marxism still offers fresh and relevant answers.

This book is a disturbing account of the rising tide of Islamophobia sweeping through the United States and Europe. Nathan Lean takes us through a world of conservative bloggers, right-wing talk show hosts, evangelical religious leaders and politicians, all united in their quest to exhume the ghosts of 9/11 and convince their compatriots that Islam is the enemy. Lean uncovers their scare tactics, reveals their motives, and exposes the ideologies that drive their propaganda machine.

The Blake Book: Art, Religion and Spirituality in Australia is back in stock! The Blake Prize for religious art has now withstood 60 years of controversy as critics from many walks of life have argued as to what, in these decades of Australia’s history, constitutes ‘religious art’. Rosemary Crumlin’s richly illustrated book traces the changing styles of the literally thousands of entries to the Prize over six decades. These begin with winners of the prize in the 1950s who modelled their works on examples from Western art history and then extends to the decades when non-objectivity posed problems for those seeking religious imagery, through to the inclusion of Indigenous art and influences stemming from Asia and the Muslim world. This is a profoundly important history of a particular aspect of Australian art. $69.95 Pb, ISBN 9781921394737, NZRP$89.95 Quantity October 2011, 244 pages Macmillan Art Publishing

My Beautiful Genome
Australian artist Tim Storrier has won the Archibald Prize for 2012! Tim Storrier, among Australia’s most highlyregarded and best-selling painters, remains enigmatic. His paintings, which combine the traditional genres of landscape and still-life, executed at a masterly level, are at once beautiful and frightening. Storrier, the individual, can be abrupt and peppery, and some suggest that his fiery landscapes indicate an artist ‘painting out his anger’. However, Storrier’s art is more an observation of natural vistas of ocean, sunrise and night-sky with transient themes selected from the banality of modern human survival and communication.

Biography Chaplin's Music Hall
The Odyssey of Ibn Battuta
The Chaplins and their Circle in the Limelight
Uncommon Tales of a Medieval Adventurer
Barry Anthony is the author of The King's Jester: The Life of Dan Leno, Victorian Comic Genius.
Born in 14th century Morocco, and a contemporary of Marco Polo, Ibn Battuta has left us an account in his own words of his remarkable journeys throughout the Islamic world and beyond: journeys punctuated by adventure and peril, and stretching from his home in Tangiers to Zaytun in faraway China. Recounting the many miracles which its author claims to have experienced personally, his al-rihla or 'Travelogue' is a fascinating mosaic of mysticism and reportage offering a prototype of magic realism. David Waines discusses the subtleties of the al-rihla, revealing all the wonders of Ibn Battuta's world to the modern reader. This is a gripping treatment of the life and times of one of history's most daring, and at the same time most human, discoverers. $32.95 Pb, ISBN 9781780763606, NZRP$39.95 Publish August 2012, 228 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Biography/Travel

Charlie Chaplin grew up in and around the music hall. His experiences of the culture of the music hall were a major influence, shaping his style of acting and the films he made, most famously Limelight, which tells the story of a failing variety performer and which evoked painful memories of his own past. The author reveals the difficult and oftentragic lives of London's variety community in the late-Victorian and Edwardian years, a time of great change in the music hall and entertainment scene, and in doing so sheds important new light on the inspiration behind Chaplin's genius, providing a fascinatingly fresh perspective on this popular cultural icon of the twentieth century. $54.95 Hb, ISBN 9781780763149, NZRP$69.95 Publish August 2012, 224 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Historical Biography

The Strategic Victory
A Literary Life
The War Against Batista in the Sierra Maestra
R.S. White, University of Western Australia, Australia.
L iterary L ives
With scholarly elegance, this latest biography of Keats finds fresh links between the poet's work and his life. His five years as a medical student are considered in the formation of his thought, as are his political radicalism and philosophical ideas of life as a 'vale of soul-making' and of the 'three chambers' of the creative imagination. Keats is seen as more heavily indebted to Renaissance writers than were his contemporaries. R. S. White tactfully probes Keats's emotional entanglements with Fanny Brawne and other women, and the shifting relationships within his literary coterie. The much loved odes, The Eve of St Agnes and narrative poems are considered alongside his playwrighting ventures and many other rich poems that are not so well known. $44.95 Pb, ISBN 9781137030474, NZRP$54.95 Publish August 2012, 272 pages Palgrave Macmillan Biography
Here at last is the first volume in Fidel Castro's long-awaited memoir, a project he has been working on since he retired from public office in 2006. Opening with an extensive chapter on his childhood and youth, this is Fidel Castro's never before published account of the guerrilla movement that led to the Cuban revolution in 1959. Besides being a lively and absorbing memoir and the most authoritative history of the period, this is also destined to be a classic of military history. A keen student of great military tacticians, Fidel led 3000 young guerrillas who pitted themselves against General Batista's 10,000 troops that were supported and trained by the United States. Including 270 pages of photos and color maps, as well as facsimiles of key documents, this is an unprecedented source of documentary material. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780987077905, NZRP$49.95 Publish August 2012, 600 pages Ocean Press Biography

Woody Guthrie is the most famous and influential folk music composer and performer in the history of the United States. His influence exceeded the realm of American music, reaching American politics. Guthrie's music became the soundtrack to the Great Depression, and iconic of the Dust Bowl migrants. Guthrie and his music came to represent those disenfranchised people who remained committed to making better lives for themselves through the promise of the American Dream. Here, in a short, accessible biography, bolstered with primary documents, including letters, autobiographical excerpts, and reflections by Pete Seeger, Cohen introduces Guthrie's life and music influence to students of American history and culture. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415895699, NZRP$49.95 Publish August 2012, 160 pages Routledge Biography

Antony Lerman traces his five-decade personal, political, and intellectual journey from idealistic young socialist-Zionist in the 1960s to controversial and outspoken critic of Israeli policies towards the Palestinians. As head of an influential policy think tank and a major grant-making foundation, he operated at the highest levels of UK and international Jewish political and intellectual life. Having held these positions he provides a unique perspective on his experience of the Jewish establishment's hostility towards his views on Israel and Zionism. Through his critique of Zionism, his critical assessment of Jewish political processes, and his analysis of the Israel-Palestine conflict, the author presents a powerful human rights-based argument about how the conflict can be resolved whilst respecting views on all sides. $44.95 Hb, ISBN 9780745332765, NZRP$54.95 Publish August 2012, 288 pages Pluto Memoir

Waiting For - (Text for Nothing) Samuel Beckett, in Play (Volume 2) Joseph Kosuth
This two-volume set documents installations by acclaimed American artist Joseph Kosuth which have been commisioned by Juliana Engberg of the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art in Melbourne Australia. The first was shown in the Talbot Rice Gallery, University of Edinburg in 2009 and later at Anna Schwartz Gallery, Sydney, while the second was shown at ACCA, Melbourne, in the summer of 2010-2011. Joseph Kosuth's work, executed principally in text formed of neon lighting, first appeared in the 1960s and has consistently explored the role of language and its meanings in art. His forty years enquiry has led to commissions and publications throughout Europe, the Americas, and Asia - including five Documenta(s) and six Venice Biennale(s). He lives in Rome and New York City. The two volumes contain texts by Joseph Kosuth, Juliana Engberg of ACCA, and Pat Fisher from the Talbot Rice Gallery as well as significant essays by John Welchman, noted Art historian and Professor of Modern History at the University of California, San Diego, and Ronald Jones, an artist and critic who leads the Experience Design Group at Konstfack University College in Stockholm.

Vassilieff and His Art Felicity St John Moore Danila Vassilieff, a passionate, freedom-loving Cossack who burst upon the Australian art scene in the mid-1930s is, in this book, posited as the missing link in the story of 20th century painting in Australia. The author suggests that the emotionalism and originality of his art, and his unconventional lifestyle, has a lasting effect on the art of Nolan, Tucker, Hester, Percival, Blackman, and Arthur Boyd. His imaginative response to the Australian landscape deepened this impact. This critical survey of Vassilieff's painting and sculpture is richly illustrated and fully documented with catalogues of his creative output in both areas. It is also provides the moving story of a legendary character who died poverty-stricken, in 1958, at the age of 60. His struggle to prove himself as an individual and an artist has all the ingredients of a novel.

This book explores what the succesful compliance-centred businesses are doing to manage and improve customer experience.

Digital Labor asks whether life on the internet is mostly work, or play. Large corporations profit on our online activity by tracking our interests, affiliations, and habits - and then collectiong and selling the data. What is the nature of this interactive 'labor' and the new forms of digital sociality that it brings into being? It suggests that there is no longer a clear divide between 'the personal and 'work' as all become fodder for speculative profit. It argues that we are living in a total labor society and the way in which we are commoditized, racialized, and engendered is normalized by the domiant discourse of digital culture. $57.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415896955, NZRP$72.00 Publish August 2012, 272 pages Routledge Quantity Business & Economics

Ethical Lessons of the Financial Crisis
Stories of Life in the Workplace
Eileen P. Flynn, Saint Peter's College, USA.
An Open Architecture for Organizational Narratology
The crisis in the financial industry brought the U.S. economy to the brink of a major depression. Government officials, economists and financial executives intervened to implement measures to mitigate the damage, applying their expertise and using their best judgments to rescue the economy. The actions they took required technical competence, pragmatic judgments and controversial decisions. They worked through a crisis to try to prevent a very bad situation from becoming a catastrophe. As events played out in the autumn of 2008, there was little time to reflect on how immoral conduct contributed to the crisis and how financial recovery needs to be built on an ethical foundation. $44.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415516754, NZRP$59.95 Publish August 2012, 288 pages Routledge Quantity Business & Economics

Product recalls have increased dramatically in the recent past. Consequently, the safety of imported products has been pushed to the top of the agenda for companies, consumers, and governments. It has been argued that recalls occur due to differences among national standards, cost pressures and opportunistic behavior by companies. The key to decreasing recalls and harm from defective products lies in improving product designs, learning from recalls and swiftly acting on incidents. These point to the dangers in the disaggregation of value chains and the need to effectively manage them. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781137032362, NZRP$49.95 Publish August 2012, 204 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Business & Economics

Julian Baldick descrives a common inheritance among the beliefs of the various peoples who have lived in central Asia or have migrated from there: Scythians, Mongols, Manchus, Finns and Hungarians. Shamans (holy men and healers among the pagan faiths) relied heavily on animal sacrifices to create spiritual purity and to nourish the soul. As a result, animals and spirituality were locked in a mutually dependent embrace. The author demonstrates that in pagan times worship and spiritual expression evinced remarkable common features: and that these similarities were largely based on the roles of animals in the different cultures of Central Asia. $34.00 Pb, ISBN 9781780762326, NZRP$43.00 Publish August 2012, 224 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity Society & Culture

Women of Reason from Enlightenment to Romanticism
Blake to Mary Shelley
Elizabeth Eger, King's College London, UK.
John Beer traces the Romantic perception that rational consciousness could not adequately represent all that was implicit in the human psyche, and the consequent invocation of a human sense of 'Being' - related either to the Divine Being or to a universal spirit - as supplement. Although an intuition of the kind can be traced in Blake, the writer most responsible for articulating and developing it was Coleridge, whose interest in psychology and earlier, more pantheistic, speculations provided a powerful stimulus to Wordsworth's ideas concerning Nature. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9781137018113, NZRP$55.00 Publish August 2012, 240 pages Palgrave Macmillan Literature
This book explores the cultural history of women's literary and intellectual activity in Britain between 1750 and 1812. Richard Samuel's painting, The Nine Living Muses of Great Britain (1779), forms the starting point and guiding motif of the book. In the bluestocking salon these arts were developed to new levels of moral significance and provided the basis for women's involvement with the formal literary genres of their time, including Shakespearean criticism and poetry. This book highlights women's role in shaping an evolving national canon of literature. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9781137018472, NZRP$55.00 Publish August 2012, 296 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Literature

1688 and the Romantic Reform of Literature
Dickens to Plath
Anthony Jarrels, University of South Carolina, USA.
John Beer, Cambridge University, UK.
In 1688 an institutional change subordinated the monarchy to the parliament. A shift from an expansive, Enlightenment-based print culture to a private, imaginative realm of literature redirected the powerful and effects of print and subordinated politics to culture. Romantic-period writers found in 1688 a model for containing the threat of popular violence that had come to be linked with freedom of the press and freedom of association. Not only did they write endlessly about bloodless Revolution, reinventing it in the process; they also wrote as bloodless Revolution, enacting this new form of politics and reinventing literature itself in the process. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9781137018670, NZRP$55.00 Publish August 2012, 240 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Literature
The book discusses further questionings of human consciousness. As Darwinism gained ground, undermining Romantic modes of thought, questions concerning human consciousness remained. In Dickens, for example, the struggle between a consciously affectionate and benevolent view of the world and an unconscious attraction to the criminal and violent probably led eventually to his failure to complete his last novel. Similar contradictions produced the Society for Psychical Research, where it was hoped that scientific investigation of abnormal psychical experiences might produce further insights into human nature. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9781137018229, NZRP$55.00 Publish August 2012, 216 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Literature

Robert Miles, University of Victoria, Canada.

She is the author of Social Protest in the Eighteenth-Century English Novel; Her Bread to Earn: Women, Money, and Society from Defoe to Austen; and In Praise of Poverty.
In an age of personality, writers strove for attention by dramatising their status as a 'neglected genius', someone who wrote, not for the massmarket or for profit, but for the discerning few. 'Romantic misfit' is the common term for this modern identity. This book probes the modern institutionalisation of Literature by examining this process of inclusion and exclusion as it happened among first generation Romantics, where the tension between the late Enlightenment and its Romantic 'counter' was at its most acute. A recurring theme of Romantic Misfits is that Romanticism was institutionalised among the ruins of the public sphere. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9781137018526, NZRP$55.00 Publish August 2012, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Literature Quantity

This book reassesses Percy Shelley's engagement with late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century science and medicine, specifically his knowledge and use of theories on the nature of life presented in the debate between surgeons John Abernethy and William Lawrence. The medical search for a principal of life is shown to emerge from the political challenges of the day and to confront issues which are characteristically Shelleyan: the desired selflessness of the Romantic subject, sensibility, mutability, and the necessity of repositioning humankind in a newly conceived, active universe. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9781137011121, NZRP$55.00 Publish August 2012, 248 pages Palgrave Macmillan Literature Quantity
