Vanished World of Peking’s Foreign Colony

Island Cooking of Greece

Julia Boyd is the author of Hannah Riddell, An Englishwoman in Japan and The Excellent Doctor Blackwell. She has travelled frequently to China.

Diana Farr Louis is an author, cooking and travel enthusiast. She has been Travel Correspondent for the Athens News since 1997 and is the author of a number of travel books on Greece. June Marinos is an expert on Greek cuisine. Her publications include A Taste of Crete, A Taste of the Cyclades and An Odyssey into Greek Cooking.

With its fossil hunters and philosophers, diplomats, dropouts, writers and explorers, missionaries and refugees, Peking’s foreign community in the early 20th century was as exotic as the city itself. Always a magnet for larger than life individuals, Peking attracted characters as diverse as Reginald Johnston (tutor to the last emperor), Bertrand Russell, Pierre Loti, Rabrindranath Tagore, Sven Hedin, Peter Fleming, Wallis Simpson and Cecil Lewis. The last great capital to remain untouched by the modern world, Peking both entranced and horrified its foreign residents. Ignoring the poverty outside their gates, they danced, played and squabbled among themselves, oblivious to the great political events that were to shape modern China unfolding around them. This is a dazzling portrait of an eclectic foreign community and of China itself. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9781780760520, NZRP$49.95 Publish February 2012, 288 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers History

Corfu, Kefalonia, Zakynthos and the other Ionian islands are home to one of the finest cuisines of the Mediterranean. The Ionians have always held a particular, almost mystical, fascination for visitors, and, for many of the thousands who travel to the region each year, it is the special nature of Ionian cooking that forms an essential and unforgettable part of their experience. The recipes in Prospero’s Kitchen come mostly from family notebooks handed down through the generations and reflect the cosmopolitan nature of Ionian cuisine. Featuring over 150 easy-to-follow recipes as well as fascinating information on Ionian cooking and customs, beautiful photographs and original illustrations, Prospero’s Kitchen is an essential kitchen addition for anyone with a passion for the beautiful and lyrical Ionian islands. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9781780761367, NZRP$49.95 Publish February 2012, 272 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity Cooking

Secret Manoeuvres in the Dark

A Social History of Western Political Thought from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment

Corporate Spying on Activists

Ellen Meiksins Wood, for many years Professor of Political Science at York University, Toronto, is the author of a number of books, including Democracy Against Capitalism and, with Verso, The Pristine Culture of Capitalism, The Origin of Capitalism, Peasant-Citizen and Slave, Citizens to Lords, and Empire of Capital. The formation of the modern state, the rise of capitalism, the Renaissance and Reformation, the scientific revolution and the Age of Enlightenment-all these have been credited to the “early modern” period. Nearly everything about its history remains controversial, but one thing is certain: it left a rich and provocative legacy of political ideas unmatched in Western history. Ideas of liberty, equality, property, human rights and revolution born in those turbulent centuries continue to shape, and to limit, political discourse today. From Machiavelli, Luther and Calvin to Spinoza, the Levellers, Hobbes, Locke and Rousseau, Meiksins Wood vividly explores the ideas of the canonical thinkers, not as philosophical abstractions but as passionately engaged responses to the social conflicts of their day. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844677528, NZRP$44.95 Publish February 2012, 256 pages Verso Politics / Philosophy Quantity

Eveline Lubbers is a Research Fellow at the University of Bath and Professor of Investigative Journalism at Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam. She is a member of the editorial collective of the Spinwatch website and author of Battling Big Business: Countering Greenwash, Front Groups and Other Forms of Corporate Bullying. The exposure of undercover policeman Mark Kennedy in the ‘eco-activist’ movement revealed how the state monitors and undermines political activism. This book shows the other grave threat to our political freedoms - undercover activities by corporations. Secret Manoeuvres in the Dark documents how corporations are halting legitimate action and investigation by activists. Using exclusive access to previously confidential sources, Eveline Lubbers shows how companies such as Nestlé, Shell and McDonalds use covert methods to evade accountability. She argues that corporate intelligence gathering has shifted from being reactive to pro-active, with important implications for democracy itself. This will be vital reading for all who care about freedom and democracy in the 21st century. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780745331850, NZRP$49.95 Publish February 2012, 237 pages Pluto Political Activism / Human Rights Quantity

How the Islamists Hijacked the Middle East Revolts

How the West Fuels War and Poverty in the Developing World

John R. Bradley is a widely published British foreign correspondent.

Vijay Mehta is Chair of Uniting for Peace and founding trustee of the Fortune Forum charity.

When popular revolutions erupted in Tunisia and Egypt, the West assumed that democracy and pluralism would triumph. John R. Bradley draws on his extensive firsthand knowledge of the region's cultures and societies to show how Islamists will fill the power vacuum in the wake of the revolutions. With the in-depth knowledge of a local and the keen perspective of a seasoned reporter, After the Arab Spring offers a piercing analysis of what the empowerment of Islamism bodes for the future of the Middle East and the impact on the West. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230338197, NZRP$44.95 Published January 2012, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Current Affairs

The Economics of Killing describes how the power of global elites, entrenched under globalisation, has created a deadly cycle of violence. In this groundbreaking work, Vijay Mehta shows how attempts at peaceful national development are routinely blocked by Western powers. He locates the 2008 financial crisis in US attempts to block China’s model of development. He shows how Europe and the US conspire with regional dictators to prevent countries from developing advanced industries, and how this system has fed terrorism. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9780745332246, NZRP$44.95 Publish February 2012, 216 pages Pluto Quantity International Affairs

The Stolen History of the Battle of Britain

118 Days in Iran’s Most Notorious Prison

Richard North is a political analyst who has been a research director in the European Parliament.

Maziar Bahari was reporting for Newsweek magazine when he was arrested without charge during the 2009 Iranian Election Protests.

Unknown to most persons, the basic narrative of the Battle of Britain was drawn up not during the period described but six months afterwards, when the battle officially acquired its name. It was to be longer, however, before agreement could be reached on when the battle started, and even now there is considerable dispute amongst historians as to when it did start. This book takes a fresh look at the controversy and the conflict as a whole, coming away with the view that the whole battle has been miscast. $44.95 Hb, ISBN 9781441131515, NZRP$54.95 Publish February 2012, 256 pages Continuum Military History

He shows how late Edwardian society began the process by creating a triumph out of a tragedy. In doing so, Howells not only provides an invaluable insight into the social values of the time, but also reflects upon the far broader relationship between myth, history and popular culture today. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230313804, NZRP$39.95 Publish February2012, 288 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Popular History

The return to religion has perhaps become the dominant cliché of contemporary theory, which rarely offers anything more than an exaggerated echo of a political reality dominated by religious war. Somehow, the secular age seems to have been replaced by a new era, where political action flows directly from metaphysical conflict. The Faith of the Faithless asks how we might respond. Following Critchley’s Infinitely Demanding, this new book builds on its philosophical and political framework, also venturing into the questions of faith, love, religion and violence. $39.00 Hb, ISBN 9781844677375, NZRP$49.00 Publish February 2012, 288 pages Verso Quantity History & Philosophy

Kant’s Project in the First Critique

The Trial of the Haymarket Anarchists

Daniel N. Robinson, University of Oxford, UK.

Terrorism and Justice in the Gilded Age

This book presents a clear and systematic appraisal of what is perhaps the most difficult treatise in the philosophical canon. Daniel N. Robinson situates Kant’s undertaking in the First Critique within the context of the history of philosophy and as a response to the challenges of scepticism. Kant’s central task in the First Critique is to tie his metaphysical analysis to the very possibility of nature itself. Where others assumed the validity or the weakness of perception and reason, Kant presents a critical appraisal of both, thereby establishing the very limits of sense and reason as instruments of discovery. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441148513, NZRP$49.95 Publish February 2012, 208 pages Continuum Quantity History & Philosophy

This book is the culmination of seven years of research into the 1886 Haymarket bombing and subsequent trial. It not only overturns the prevailing consensus on this event, it documents in detail how the basic facts, as far as they can be determined, have been distorted, obscured, or suppressed for seventy years. It demonstrates that the received wisdom regarding Chicago’s anarchist leaders - that they were tried and convicted for their ideas in a trial in which little evidence of their guilt was presented - is absolutely false. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230120778, NZRP$38.00 Publish February 2012, 244 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity History & Philosophy

The Global Sex Trade

Leaving Traces, Selected Articles by J. David Singer

Economics, Policy and the State

J. David Singer, a globally recognized scholar of international politics, passed away in 2009.

Trafficking in women for commercial sex is the fastest growing transnational criminal phenomenon. The Global Sex Trade looks at the reality behind this shocking fact, showing how this situation has come about and how it can be changed. In a distinctive and original analysis Karie A Gubbins shows the connections between the legalised sex industry and the illegal world of sex trafficking. Pornography creates the demand and, increasingly, trafficking is a form of supply. The result is a mutually beneficial relationship between legal and illegal economies that has allowed the global sex trade to expand and move freely across borders in recent decades. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745330952, NZRP$55.00 Publish February 2012, 264 pages Pluto Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

Eradicating Extreme Poverty

Israel and the European Left

Democracy, Globalisation and Human Rights

Between Solidarity and Delegitimisation

Xavier Godinot, ATD Fourth World.

Colin Shindler, University of London, UK.

The failure of attempts to tackle global poverty have bred cynicism and ‘compassion fatigue’. Eradicating Extreme Poverty provides an urgently needed fresh approach which will re-energise action on this issue. Rejecting traditional ‘topdown’ approaches, Xavier Godinot starts from the experiences, capabilities and strategies of the poor themselves. He argues that the first step is a close connection with poor communities followed by a commitment to take action alongside them. Life-stories from Burkina Faso, France, Peru and the Philippines are used to show that the poor must be involved in their own liberation. $46.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745331973, NZRP$58.00 Publish February 2012, 272 pages Pluto Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

Why has the European Left become so antagonistic towards Israel? To answer this question, Colin Shindler looks at the struggle between Communism and Zionism from the October Revolution to today. Is such antagonism in opposition to the policies of successive Israeli governments? Or, is it due to a resurgence of anti-Semitism? The answer is far more complex. Shindler argues that the new generation of the European Left was more influenced by the decolonization movement than by wartime experiences, which led it to favor the Palestinian cause in the post 1967 period. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441150134, NZRP$49.95 Publish February 2012, 256 pages Continuum Current Affairs & Politics Quantity

Although Al Jazeera English has yet to receive to receive the attention accorded to its Arabiclanguage elder sibling, it is in many ways the more interesting of the two. It seeks to redefine global news coverage by focusing on areas traditionally neglected by most news organizations, and its potential audience is many times larger than that of the Arabic channel. Its coverage of the 2011 Arab Spring brought the channel a large new audience. This is the first book to thoroughly examine this channel’s coverage methods, effects on its audience, and its place in the world of mediated geopolitics. $36.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230340213, NZRP$46.00 Publish February 2012, 224 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

A Political History of the Two Irelands

State Violence, Collusion and the Troubles

From Partition to Peace

Maurice Punch, King’s College London, UK.

Brian Mercer Walker, Queen’s University Belfast, Ireland.

The period in Northern Ireland known as ‘the Troubles’ (1968-98) seemed to have been conclusively ended by the official peace process. But recent assassinations by the Real IRA show that tensions from the past remain unresolved. State Violence, Collusion and the Troubles reveals disturbing unanswered questions about the use of state violence during this period. Maurice Punch documents in chilling detail how the British government turned to desperate, illegal measures in a time of crisis, disregarding domestic and international law. He broadens out his analysis to consider other cases of state violence against ‘insurgent groups’ in Spain and South Africa. $44.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745331478, NZRP$55.00 Publish February 2012, 213 pages Pluto Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

It examines the impact of the fraught dynamics between the competing identities of the NationalistCatholic-Irish Community on the one hand and the Unionist-Protestant-British community on the other. Brian Walker provides a new understanding of the outbreak of the ‘Troubles’ in 1969 and the subsequent peace process. $39.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230361478, NZRP$49.00 Publish February 2012, 272 pages Palgrave Macmillan Current Affairs & Politics Quantity

Africa is often seen as a place to be pitied or feared as an area of instability. This book challenges these complacent assumptions, showing how our demand for oil contributes to the chronic problems plaguing the continent. Douglas A.

Yates documents how Africans have refused to remain passive in the face of such developments, forming movements to challenge this new attempt at domination. $46.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745330457, NZRP$58.00 Publish February 2012, 256 pages Pluto Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

Liberal Tradition and Fascism

The Ideology of the Individual in Capitalist Development

Ishay Landa, Israeli Open University, Israel.

Micheal O’Flynn, University of Limerick, Ireland.

20th-century European Fascism is conventionally described as a fierce assault on liberal politics, culture and economics. Departing from this analysis, Landa highlights the long overlooked critical affinities between the liberal tradition and fascism. Far from being the antithesis of liberalism, fascism, both in its ideology and its practice, was substantially, if dialectically, indebted to liberalism, particularly to its economic variant. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781608462025, NZRP$49.95 Publish February 2012, 374 pages Haymarket Books Critical Social Sciences

Palgrave Publicity Spotlight On….

On Tour

Slavoj Žižek visited Liberty Plaza to speak to Occupy Wall Street protesters: "We are not dreamers, we are the awakening from a dream which is turning into a nightmare."

The State Library of Victoria will be holding an exhibition on Persian manuscripts, to coincide with the publication of Love and Devotion: From Persia and Beyond.

"We were called losers—but are the true losers not there on the Wall Street, and were they not bailed out by hundreds of billions of your money? You are called socialists—but in the US, there already is socialism for the rich. They will tell you that you don't respect private property—but the Wall Street speculations that led to the crash of 2008 erased more hard-earned private property than if we were to be destroying it here night and day—just think of thousands of homes foreclosed..."

The exhibition, also called 'Love and Devotion', will run from March 9th to July 1st 2012, and will feature nearly 70 rare 13th- to 18thcentury Persian, Mughal Indian and Ottoman Turkish illustrated manuscripts and miniatures from the Bodleian Libraries of the University of Oxford.

MACMILL AN ART PUBLISHIN G Denise Green

Graham King

An Artist's Odyssey

Mini Book #20

Denise Green, with contributions by Richard Kalina, Frances Lindsay, Anthony Bond, Peter Timms, Roland Mönig, Christoph Trepesch, Lily Wei and Ingrid Periz.

Jane Eckett.

Co-published by Macmillan and the University of Minnesota Press, this book traces the career of Brisbane-born, New York-based artist Denise Green, who has developed an international reputation as an exhibiting artist. Ingrid Periz claims that there is a genre-blurring quality to this book, combining as it does: autobiographical accounts; formal analysis; friendly chat; art history; and critical commentary. On the library shelf, she thinks it could sit alongside Judy Chicago’s Through the Flower, James Elkins’ What $39.95 Flexibound, NZRP$49.95 Painting Is, and the recollections of Australian ISBN 9781921394591 expatriates like Jill Kerr Conway or Clive James. It February 2012, 192 pages is also a guide book for young artists looking for Quantity models of career development.

Author Jane Eckett, in examining the role of drawing in an artist’s life, suggests that for Grahame King it represented much more than simply a means of describing the world. It was his way of learning about the world and then synthesising observation, thought, feeling and intuition. The book traces the many ways in which drawing led King to the arts of monotype and lithography in which he became a master printmaker.

Love and Devotion

Sandra Bardas

From Persia and Beyond

Mini Book #21

Edited by Susan Scollay and multi-authored.

David Bardas and Ken McGregor.

Jointly published by Macmillan and the State Library of Victoria in association with the Bodleian Library, Oxford, this book accompanies an exhibition of original manuscripts relating to Persian poetry and its milieu to be held at the State Library from March 2012.

David Bardas recalls how his wife, Sandra Bardas, who died in 2007, sought every opportunity to photograph the graffiti she spotted in Australian cities and international centres on their business trips around the world. Her interest dates back to the 1990s, before the art form’s current popularity and entry into the art market. He suggests that she recognised and empathised with the free spirit and rebelliousness of the mostly anonymous graffiti artists and their need to be seen and heard. An artist herself, and a mother of six, she was unafraid to speak out and was attracted by the colour and inventiveness demonstrated in the photographic images which are the subject of this book.

With contributions by Australian and international scholars and superb examples of the art form as it is portrayed in works like the Bodleian’s famous Shahnama of Firdausi, it is easy to see how the beauty of Persian manuscripts would capture the minds of early European travellers and influence art and literature in the West. This book is lavishly illustrated to feature the gorgeous colours and intricate details of these Persian masterpieces.

ROAR Re-viewed

Melbourne’s ROAR group of young artists emerged in the early 1980s as a rebellion against many of the mores of the then art world. They created wild and colourful paintings, drank beer instead of wine and set up studios and an exhibition space in Brunswick Street, Fitzroy. Now, thirty years later, the art of Wayne Eager, Sarah Faulkner, Andrew and Peter Ferguson, Pasquale Giardino, Karan Hayman, Ann Howie, Mark Howson, David Larwill, Michael Nicholls, Jill Noble, Mark Schaller and Judi Singleton has been both re-viewed and re-commissioned for an extraordinary book.

The fact that Sydney artist Julian Meagher originally studied medicine might be deduced from the proliferation of body images in his paintings. From classical life drawing and persuasive portraiture studied in Italy and Sydney, Meagher has moved to the depiction of intricate tattoos on the backs, torsos, shoulders, arms and legs of male subjects. This might be seen as a new episode of Pop art with the globalisation of cultural practices originating in the East— particularly Japan, where Meagher has frequently travelled. His Pop imagery also extends to festival scenes and the elevation of supermarket and liquor-shop packages and products to symbols of our times. This is thought-provoking art with a very original and timely edge.

9 780956 240194

Ama Ata Aidoo was born in a small village in Ghana's central Fanti-speaking region in 1942. Her father had opened the first school in the village and was a strong influence on her. At the age of 15 she decided that she wanted to be a writer and within just four years, she'd achieved that ambition; she was encouraged to enter a newspaper short story competition and only discovered that she'd won it when she saw her name in the newspaper. "At the age of 15, a teacher had asked me what I wanted to do for a career, and without knowing why or even how I replied that I wanted to be a poet. About four years later I won a short story competition but learned about it only when I opened the newspaper that had organised it, and saw the story had been published on its centre pages and realised the name of the author of that story in print was mine. I believe these moments were crucial for me because... I had articulated a dream... it was a major affirmation for me as a writer, to see my name in print." - Ama Ata Aidoo Aidoo studied literature at the University of Ghana and became a university lecturer. Whilst there she produced her first play in 1964. In January 1982 she was appointed Minister of Education. As Minister, Aidoo wanted to make education in Ghana freely accessible to all - but after 18 months when she realised that she couldn't achieve her aims she resigned. She moved to Zimbabwe to become a full-time writer and also lived and taught in the USA. Aidoo has won many literary awards including the 1992 Commonwealth Writers Prize for Best Book (Africa) for Changes.

Human Development Report 2011 The 2011 Human Development Report argues that the urgent global challenges of sustainability and equity must be addressed together – and identifies policies on the national and global level that could spur progress towards these interlinked goals at the same time. Bold action is needed on both fronts, the Report contends, if the recent human development progress experienced by most of the world's poor majority is to be sustained, for the benefit of future generations as well as for those living today. Past Reports have shown that living standards in most countries have been rising – and converging – for several decades now. Yet the 2011 Report projects a disturbing reversal of those trends if environmental deterioration and social inequalities continue to intensify, with the least developed countries diverging downwards from global patterns of progress by 2050. The Report shows further how the world's most disadvantaged people suffer the most from environmental degradation, including in their immediate personal environment, and disproportionately lack political power, making it all the harder for the world community to reach agreement on needed global policy change. Yet the Report also outlines great potential for positive synergies in the quest for greater equity and sustainability, especially at the national level. The Report further emphasizes the right to a healthy environment, the importance of integrating equity into environmental policies, and the critical importance of public participation and official accountability. The 2011 Report concludes with proposals for bold new approaches to global development financing and environmental controls, arguing that these are both essential and feasible. The 2011 Report will also feature the 2011 Human Development Index (HDI) and updated editions of the complementary indices introduced in the 20th anniversary Report in 2010: the Inequality-Adjusted HDI, the Gender Inequality Index, and the Multidimensional Poverty Index.

Civil Imagination

The Photobook

A Political Ontology of Photography

From Talbot to Ruscha and Beyond

Ariela Azoulay, Bar Ilan University, Israel.

Patrizia Di Bello, University of London, UK; Colette Wilson, Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies, UK; and Shamoon Zamir, University of London, UK.

Azoulay engages with Arendt and Benjamin, arguing that art-world concerns regarding authorship, intention and framework should be replaced with a discussion of the agency of subjects and viewers, the political delimitation of what can be seen, and where the imagination can break through political boundaries. Showing how photographs from the occupied territories of Gaza and the West Bank recognize or deny the Palestinian disaster, Azoulay reconstructs the narrative of the responsible, ruling regime - and in so doing, also demonstrates how its power can be renegotiated through acts of imagining. $39.00 Hb, ISBN 9781844677535, NZRP$49.00 Publish February 2012, 256 pages Verso Quantity The Arts

English Tragedy before Shakespeare

The Art of Andrew Rogers

Ken Scarlett et al.

First published in English 1961, this reissue relates the problems of form and style to the development of dramatic speech in pre-Shakespearean tragedy. The work offers positive standards by which to assess the development of pre-Shakespearean drama and, by tracing certain characteristics in Elizabethan tragedy which were to have a bearing on Shakespeare’s dramatic technique, helps to illuminate the foundations on which Shakespeare built his dramatic oeuvre. $54.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415618595, NZRP$68.00 Publish February 2012, 302 pages Routledge The Arts

What Photography Is

Or, What Became of 21st Century Cinema?

The Art of Andrew Rogers

J. Hoberman has been the senior film critic at The Village Voice since 1988.

James Elkins, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, USA.

In this sly and thought-provoking essay, Village Voice film critic J. Hoberman suggests that it’s possible to speak of a distinctive twenty-first century cinema, only a decade into the new millennium. This witty and allusive book, in the style of classic film theorist/critics like André Bazin and Siegfried Kracauer, expands on a muchdiscussed article by Hoberman from Artforum and includes considerations of global cinema’s most important figures and films, from Lars von Trier and Zia Jiangke to WALL-E, Avatar, and Inception. $29.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844677511, NZRP$38.00 Publish February 2012, 192 pages Verso The Arts

In What Photography Is, James Elkins examines the strange and alluring power of photography in the same provocative and evocative manner as he explored oil painting in his best-selling What Painting Is. Extensively illustrated with a surprising range of images, the book demonstrates that what makes photography uniquely powerful is its ability to express the difficulty - physical, psychological, emotional, and aesthetic - of the act of seeing. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415995696, NZRP$49.95 Published June 2011, 226 pages Routledge The Arts

Raoul Wallenberg is widely remembered for his humanitarian activity on behalf of the Hungarian Jews in Budapest at the end of World War II. In 2008, there exist thirty-one Wallenberg monuments in twelve countries on five continents, from Hungary to Sweden, from Canada to Chile, from Australia to Russia. The art-historical focus of this interdisciplinary study makes it a valuable contribution to the discussion of personal monuments, as well as to the socio-historical research on the commemoration of Wallenberg and the concept of the hero. $46.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230361454, NZRP$58.00 Publish February 2012, 448 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity The Arts

Freak Shows and the Modern American Imagination examines the artistic use of freak shows between 1900 and 1950. During this period, the freak show shifted from a highly popular and profitable form of entertainment to a reviled one. But why? And how does this response reflect larger social changes in the United States at the time? Artists responded to this change by using the freakish body as a tool for exploring problematic social attitudes about race, disability, and sexual desire in American culture. $27.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230120983, NZRP$34.00 Publish February 2012, 200 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Literature

The capacity of the arts and the humanities, and of literature in particular, to have a meaningful societal impact has been increasingly undervalued in recent history. Mack maintains that the arts do not merely describe our world but that they also have the unique and underappreciated power to make us aware of how we can change accustomed forms of perception and action. Mack explores the works of prominent writers and thinkers, including Nietzsche, Foucault, Benjamin, Wilde, Roth, and Zizek, among others, to illustrate how literature interacts with both people and political as well as scientific issues of the real world. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441119148, NZRP$49.95 Publish February 2012, 208 pages Continuum Quantity Literature

Kurt Vonnegut’s darkly comic work became a symbol for the counterculture of a generation. Vonnegut’s writing has remained commercially popular, offering a satirical yet optimistic outlook on modern life. Though many fellow writers admired Vonnegut - Gore Vidal famously suggesting that “Kurt was never dull” - the academic establishment has tended to retain a degree of scepticism concerning the validity of his work. This dynamic collection aims to re-evaluate Vonnegut’s position as an integral part of the American postwar cannon of literature. $27.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230120976, NZRP$34.00 Publish February 2012, 250 pages Palgrave Macmillan Literature

In these essays, drugs are considered as communication media in a practical sense, not merely in the metaphorical way they tend to be discussed in the popular press. Media and drugs are thus conceived as communicative tools that enhance and/or inhibit physical, social and symbolic experience - our ways of seeing and being in the world. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441134929, NZRP$49.95 Publish February 2012, 336 pages Continuum Quantity Health & Lifestyle

Inflammatory Breast Cancer (IBC) is a highly aggressive and thankfully rare type of breast cancer, which is not yet widely recognised both by the public and the medical profession. The author is herself a survivor of breast cancer and can therefore write with expert knowledge and experience. She discusses with compassion, insight and humour everything a person ought to know about IBC - the patient’s initial fears, the diagnosis, best place for treatment, the operation itself, and post-op care. She discusses the different forms of treatment, and also the side issues - where to find support from carers and friends, what to eat, how/ where to go on holiday. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848290396, NZRP$34.95 Published August 2010, 200 pages Anshan Quantity Health & Lifestyle

Dark Matter, Dark Energy, and the Race to Discover the Rest of Reality

The Quest for the Ultimate Theory of Time

Richard Panek writes frequently for the New York Times, as well as Discover, Esquire, Outside, and many others.

Twenty years after Stephen Hawking’s 9-millioncopy selling A Brief History of Time, pioneering theoretical physicist Sean Carroll takes our investigation into the nature of time to the next level. You can’t unscramble an egg and you can’t remember the future. But what if time doesn’t (or didn’t!) always go in the same direction? Carroll’s paradigm-shifting research suggests that other universes experience time running in the opposite direction to our own. Exploring subjects from entropy and quantum mechanics to time travel and the meaning of life, Carroll presents a dazzling new view of how we came to exist. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851688425, NZRP$29.95 Publish February 2012, 512 pages Oneworld Publications Quantity Science & Environment

Translated into Latin and then combined with what was known of Greek natural science these accounts provoked an outburst of attempts to manipulate matter and to change it into transformative substances known as the Philosopher’s Stone or the Elixir of Life. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441132970, NZRP$44.95 Publish February 2012, 216 pages Continuum Science & Environment Quantity
