The Key to Sustainable Profits in the New Economy
Simple Ways to Transform Your Relationships, Self-esteem, and Emotional Wellbeing
Terry Tamminen is Cullman Senior Fellow and Director of the Climate Policy Program at The New America Foundation, a non-profit, post-partisan, public policy institute, as well as Operating Advisor to Pegasus Capital Advisors. Previously, Mr. Tamminen headed California’s Environmental Protection Agency and was Cabinet Secretary and Chief Policy Advisor to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

The carbon market is a new one, so investing in it is not as easy as it could be. The market is extremely volatile and very illiquid, to say nothing of being at the mercy of the whims of politicians. Still, that doesn’t mean it isn’t worth buying the shares now. Despite the surplus in the market, the price of a carbon credit is holding up pretty well. Cracking the Carbon Code is filled with eye-opening facts that provides investors and business managers with insights and practical data that ultimately persuaded these leaders to embrace a low-carbon economy, critical information that is needed by anyone who wants to understand how to make money from “green” technology and how to avoid investments that will soon suffer from hidden carbon liabilities. Readers will learn to de-code a crucial component of this new economic driver -- carbon credits, the world’s first common currency. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230109506, NZRP$49.95 Publish January 2011, 192 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity 9 780230 109506 Environmental Economics
Whether you’ve been planning your escape for years, or are suddenly forced into retirement, this highly readable and informative book will help you to make the most of it. With modern culture geared to time filled with work, retiring often initiates a seismic change in lifestyle. The mental impact can be huge, affecting your identity, relationships, and well-being. Carol Hagland explains why we don’t need to fear the slow down and how we can prepare for and thrive in our years away from work. With a unique psychological approach to making the most of retirement, using cognitive behavioural therapy, Happy Retirement focuses on your personal well-being, relationships and psychological adjustment to retirement, rather than finances or hobbies. It draws on the author's experience both as a clinical psychologist and as a recent retiree, and isn't just for over-65s - no matter what age you retire at, this book has something for you. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851687633, NZRP$29.95 Publish January 2011, 160 pages Oneworld Publications Quantity 9 781851 687633 Lifestyle
The Fair Trade Revolution
John Bowes has worked for the Co-operative Group, where he was responsible for all of their ground breaking initiatives on Fair Trade. These included being the first retailer to stock Café Direct coffee, the first to introduce an own brand Fair Trade product and the first to import Fair Trade bananas into the UK. He was also Managing Director of AgroFair UK, a pioneering Fair Trade fruit business.
Foreign Bodies, Their Ingestion, Inspiration, and the Curious Doctor Who Extracted Them
Fair trade has come a long way in the last 20 years. The Fair Trade Revolution celebrates the movement’s achievement and takes up the challenge of improving more lives through fair dealing with producers. The authors of this collection, many of whom were responsible for the initial success of Fair Trade, emphasise the importance of ensuring that farmers and other producers remain the main beneficiaries. Punchy chapters, illustrated with many real-world examples, cover all the important issues including the tensions between large and small operators, the impact of recession, environmental policy and the danger of large operators embracing Fair Trade more in word than in practice. Written by the leading lights of the Fair Trade movement, including Harriet Lamb (Executive Director of the Fairtrade Foundation) and Bruce Crowther (Establisher of the world’s first Fair Trade Town) this book will inspire activists and consumers to keep making the right choices. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780745330785, NZRP$29.95 Publish January 2011, 240 pages Pluto Quantity Social Economics 9 780745 330785

She lives in Providence. One of the most popular attractions in the Mütter Museum, the world-famous medical museum in Philadelphia, is the Chevalier Jackson Foreign Body Collection: a beguiling set of drawers filled with thousands of items that had been swallowed or inhaled (both by accident and deliberately). Combining original research with a sympathetic and evocative sensibility, award-winning author Mary Cappello restores the narratives, lives, and desires of the physician-artist Dr. Chevalier Jackson and his patients that haunt this uncanny collection. In Swallow a marvelous collection forms a surprising narrative that journeys deep into the nature of human experience.

Hamid Dabashi is an internationally-renowned cultural critic and award-winning writer.
Development, Charity or Waste?

Gillette shows that the sciences of sociobiology and evolutionary psychology were undergoing rapid development in the early twentieth century. However, many of the early researchers in these sciences were also eugenicists. With the rise of behaviorism and the reaction against eugenics in the 1930s, any scientific claims that behavior might be influenced by heredity were suppressed for ideological reasons. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230108455, NZRP$49.95 Publish January 2011, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Science Quantity

Jeff Wise is a contributing editor at Popular Mechanics, Travel + Leisure, Outside’s GO, and Fortune Small Business. Veteran science journalist Jeff Wise delves into the latest research to produce an astonishing portrait of the brain’s hidden fear pathways. Wise favors a hands-on approach, volunteering to jump out of an airplane while wearing sensors and to endure a four-hour simulated missile attack on a Navy destroyer. He returns with a tale that combines lucid explanations of brain dynamics with gripping, true-life stories of mortal danger. By understanding how and why people respond the way they do, Wise argues, we can better arm ourselves against our own everyday fears. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230103481, NZRP$32.00 Publish January 2011, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Popular Psychology

Ottoman naval technology underwent a transformation under the rule of Sultan Selim III. The changing face of the Ottoman Navy was facilitated by the influence of the British, Swedish and French in modernising both the shipbuilding sector and the conduct of naval warfare. Through such measures as training Ottoman shipbuilders, heavy reliance on help from foreign powers gave way to a new trajectory of modernization. Using this evidence Zorlu argues that although the Ottoman Empire was a major and modern independent power in this period, some technological dependence on Europe remained. $65.00 Pb, ISBN 9781848857827, NZRP$80.00 Publish January 2011, 272 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Quantity History & Philosophy

The Metaxas Myth
Dictatorship and Propaganda in Greece
A Theoretical Overview
Marina Petrakis, University of Kent at Canterbury.
Lorenzo Veracini, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Australia.
The Metaxas Myth is the first detailed account of General Ioannis Metaxas’s attempts to mimic the fascist models of Mussolini, Hitler, and Franco by portraying himself as the ‘saviour’ of the Greek nation in an effort to build his power base as dictator. Following the dissolution of parliament in 1936 up to his death in 1941, Metaxas used every media outlet available to promote his great myth: newspapers, periodicals, cinema, theatre and radio. Marina Petrakis analyses the nature of Metaxas’s shortcomings: the errors made and the policies that eventually bred not loyalty, but at best apathy and at worst hostility towards his would-be autocracy. $65.00 Pb, ISBN 9781848857810, NZRP$80.00 Publish January 2011, 280 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers History & Philosophy Quantity

In Philosophy and the Idea of Freedom Roy Bhaskar sets out to develop a critique of the work of Richard Rorty, who must be one of the most influential authors of recent decades. In a brilliant tour de force, Bhaskar shows how Rorty falls victim to the very epistemological problematic Rorty himself describes. Developing his own critical realism, Bhaskar shows just where Rorty’s system comes unstuck, and how the philosophical problems to which it gives rise can be rationally resolved and explained.

Autobiographical International Relations
Feminist Security Studies
Annick T.R. Wibben, University of San Francisco.
Naeem Inayatullah, Ithaca College, USA.
This book rethinks security theory from a feminist perspective - uniquely, it engages feminism, security, and strategic studies to provide a distinct feminist approach to Security Studies. The volume explicitly works toward an opening up of security studies that would allow for feminist (and other) narratives to be recognized and taken seriously as security narratives. To make this possible, it presents a feminist reading of security studies that aims to invigorate the debate and radicalize critical security studies. $59.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415457286, NZRP$74.00 Publish January 2011, 176 pages Routledge Current Affairs & Politics
A Narrative Approach
This volume provides a novel approach to international relations. In the course of fifteen essays, scholars write about how life events brought them to their subject matter. They place their narratives in the larger context of world politics, culture, and history. Autobiographical International Relations believes that the fictive distancing associated with academic prose creates disaffection in both readers and writers. In contrast, these essays demonstrate how to reengage the “I” while simultaneously sustaining theoretical precision and historical awareness. $65.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415781435, NZRP$80.00 Publish January 2011, 240 pages Routledge Quantity Current Affairs & Politics
War and Rape
Fighting for Darfur
Law, Memory and Justice
Public Action and the Struggle to Stop Genocide
Nicola Henry, La Trobe University, Melbourne.
Rebecca Hamilton is a human rights activist who spearheaded the campaign which led Harvard University to divest from Sudan.
In this book, Henry asks some critical questions about the relationship between mass rape, politics and law. In what ways does law contribute to the collective memory of wartime rape? How do ‘counter-memories’ of victims compete with the denialism of wartime rape? The text specifically analyses the historical silencing of rape throughout international legal history and the potential of law to restore these silenced histories, it also examines the violence of law and the obstacles to individual and collective redemption. $65.00 Pb, ISBN 9780415564731, NZRP$80.00 Publish January 2011, 176 pages Routledge Current Affairs & Politics Quantity

Author Rebecca Hamilton passionately narrates how six years of major grassroots campaigns fought to bring the plight of Darfur natives to the world's attention. From the Pentagon officials to ordinary citizens who galvanized in uprecedented numbers to protest killings, Hamilton details how advocacy in favor of Darfur was an exuberant, multi-billion dollar effort. Weaving together stories of heroic individuals who fought to make a difference, Hamilton describes a complex and immensely relevant story. $42.00 Hb, ISBN 9780230100220, NZRP$52.00 Publish January 2011, 272 pages Quantity Palgrave Macmillan Current Affairs & Politics

Can the euro challenge the supremacy of the U.S. dollar as a global currency? From the time Europe’s joint money was born, many have predicted that it would soon achieve parity with the dollar or possibly even surpass it. In reality, however, the euro has remained firmly planted in the dollar’s shadow. The essays collected in this volume explain why. This collection distils the views of one of the world’s leading scholars in global currency, and will be of considerable interest to students and scholars of international finance and international political economy. $59.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415781503, NZRP$74.00 Publish January 2011, 208 pages Routledge Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

Global Think Tanks provides a clear description of and context for the global proliferation of think tanks. Whilst these institutions are still relatively new players in global and national politics, they are becoming a significant source of strength in an increasingly transnational and less Western-led world.

Anti-Capitalism and the Public Intellectual
Hezbollah is a Lebanese Shiite movement with an affinity and a deep correlation with the Iranian system, yet it’s foundation stemmed from the development of social and political procedures in the Lebanese system, in general, and among the Shia sect, in particular.

The Politics of Inclusion and Exclusion
Introducing New Radical Thinkers Introducing Verso's Radical Thinkers Set 5! What is a radical thinker? The word radical comes from the Latin radix, meaning ‘root’: it means to cut right to the core. A radical thinker therefore is anybody involved with the fundamentals of their material, who changes the way we think about the world, and challenges the way we think it should be. And when the time for action comes, radical thinkers develop and propagate practical methods of overturning the status quo. By questioning our deep-rooted views on ourselves and society, radical thinkers compel us to rethink who we are, how we want to live our lives, and how we want the world to be.
“A golden treasury of theory”—Eric Banks, Bookforum “Verso's beautifully designed Radical Thinkers series, which brings together seminal works by leading leftwing intellectuals, is a sophisticated blend of theory and thought.”—Ziauddin Sardar, New Statesman Brecht and Method
Machiavelli and Us
Fredric Jameson, Duke University.
Louis Althusser (1918 - 1990) taught philosophy for many years at the Ecole Normale Superieur in Paris.
The legacy of Bertolt Brecht is much contested, whether by those who wish to forget or to vilify his politics, but his stature as the outstanding political playwright and poet of the twentieth century is unforgettably established in this major critical work. Fredric Jameson elegantly dissects the intricate connections between Brecht’s drama and politics, demonstrating the way these combined to shape a unique and powerful influence on a profoundly troubled epoch. $22.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844676774, NZRP$29.00 Publish January 2011, 280 pages Verso

Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley; Ernesto Laclau, University of Essex; and Slavoj Zizek, Institute for Social Studies, Ljubljana.
In his analysis of the deep social trends rooted in production, consumption, and the symbolic, Jean Baudrillard touches the very heart of the concerns of the generation currently rebelling against the framework of the consumer society. Passwords, in the spirit of Gilles Deleuze’s Abécédaire, offers us twelve accessible and enjoyable entry points into Baudrillard’s thought by way of the concepts he uses throughout his work: the object, seduction, value, impossible exchange, the obscene, the virtual, symbolic exchange, the transparency of evil, the perfect crime, destiny, duality, and thought. $22.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844676767, NZRP$29.00 Publish January 2011, 92 pages Verso

“We do not publish our own drafts, that is, our own mistakes, but we do sometimes publish other people’s,” Louis Althusser once observed of Marx’s early writings. Among his own posthumously released drafts, one, at least, is incontestably neither mistake nor out-take: the text of his lecture course on Machiavelli, originally delivered at the École Normale Supérieure in 1972, intermittently revised up to the mid-1980s, and carefully prepared for publication after his death in 1990. Machiavelli was a veritable Althusserian passion. Machiavelli and Us reveals why, and will be welcomed for the light it sheds on the richly complex thought of its author. $22.95 Pb, ISBN 9781844676750, NZRP$29.00 Publish January 2011, 224 pages Verso Quantity

Aesthetics and Politics
Theodor Adorn; Walter Benjamin; Ernst Bloch; Bertolt Brecht; and Georg Lukacs.
Louis Althusser (1918 - 1990) was a leading intellectual in the French Communist Party.
No other country and no other period has produced a tradition of major aesthetic debate to compare with that which unfolded in German culture from the 1930s to the 1950s. In Aesthetics and Politics the key texts of the great Marxist controversies over literature and art during these years are assembled in a single volume. They do not form a disparate collection but a continuous, interlinked debate between thinkers who have become giants of twentieth-century intellectual history. The most remarkable aesthetic debates in European cultural history, with an afterword by Fredric Jameson. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844676644, NZRP$48.00 Publish January 2011, 220 pages Verso
A milestone in the development of post-war Marxist thought, this is the work in which Louis Althusser formulated some of his most influential ideas. This book contains the classic statements of Althusser's analysis of the young Marx and the importance of Feuerbach during this formative period, of his thesis of the “epistomological break” between the early and the late Marx, and of his conception of dialectics, contradiction and “overdetermination.” Also included is a study of the materialist theater of Bertolazzi and Brecht and the critique of humanist readings of Marxism. For Marx, in its audacity, originality and rigor, will explain why Althusser's impact was so significant. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844676620, NZRP$48.00 Publish January 2011, 270 pages Verso

Culture and Materialism
Raymond Williams (1921 - 1988) was the author of many books and several novels.
Reflections from Damaged Life
A comprehensive introduction to the work of one of the outstanding intellectuals of the twentieth century. Raymond Williams is a towering presence in cultural studies, most importantly as the founder of the approach that has come to be known as “cultural materialism.” Yet Williams’s method was always open-ended and fluid, and this volume collects together his most significant work from over a twenty-year period in which he wrestled with the concepts of materialism and culture and their interrelationship. Williams’s identity as an active socialist, rather than simply an academic, is captured by two unambiguously political pieces on the past, present and future of Marxism. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844676637, NZRP$48.00 Publish January 2011, 278 pages Verso Quantity

Palgrave Publicity Spotlight On….
Mary Roach is a columnist and popular science writer. She began her writing career at the San Francisco Zoological Society, producing press releases on such topics as elephant wart surgery. In 1986, she sold a humor piece about the IRS to the San Francisco Chronicle, which led to a spate of humorous first-person essays. She appeared on The Colbert Report, a satirical news program, in November 2005 and appeared on The Daily Show on August 2, 2010 to discuss her newest book Packing for Mars.
Sarah Irving, author of Gaza: Beneath the Bombs ($34.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745330242, NZRP$41.00) will be visiting Australia from November 2010! A freelance writer, Sarah’s work has appeared in New Internationalist, Big Issue North and Electronic Intifada.
The Israeli offensive in Gaza was described
by Amnesty international as ‘22 days of death and destruction’. This eyewitness account brings home the horror of life in Gaza beneath the bombs. Sharyn Lock went to the Gaza strip with the Free Gaza Movement but soon after her arrival Israel attacked Gaza’s 1.5 million inhabitants by land, air and sea. Her candid and dramatic blogs from Gaza gave the world an insight into the conflict that the mainstream media - unable to enter Gaza - couldn’t provide.
What happens to you when you can’t walk for a year? What
happens if you vomit in your helmet during a space walk? Is it possible to survive a bailout at 17,000 miles an hour? Space exploration is in some ways an exploration of what it means to be human. To answer these questions, space agencies set up all manner of quizzical and startlingly bizarre space simulations, and as Mary Roach discovers, it’s possible to preview space without ever leaving Earth.
Packing for Mars

Biography & Memoir Richard III
The Frontier Love Story of Rachel and Andrew Jackson
David Hipshon, St James Independent School, Twickenham.
Patricia Brady is a social and cultural historian.
9 780230 609501
The forty-year love affair between Rachel and Andrew Jackson parallels a tumultuous period in American history. Andrew Jackson was at the forefront of the American revolution - but he never could have made it without the support of his wife. Beautiful, charismatic, and generous, Rachel Jackson had the courage to go against the mores of her times in the name of love. Like many great love stories, this one ends tragically when Rachel dies only a few weeks after Andrew is elected president. Andrew and Rachel Jackson’s devotion to one another is inspiring, and here their story of love and loss comes to life for the first time. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230609501, NZRP$52.00 Publish January 2011, 272 pages Quantity Palgrave Macmillan Biography

Mary Anning was only twelve years old when, in 1811, she discovered the first dinosaur skeleton while fossil hunting on the cliffs of Lyme Regis, England. Until Mary’s incredible discovery, it was widely believed that animals did not become extinct. Once news of the fossils reached the halls of academia, it became impossible to ignore the truth. Mary’s peculiar finds helped lay the groundwork for Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. The Fossil Hunter chronicles the life of this young girl, with dirt under her fingernails and not a shilling to buy dinner, who became a worldrenowned paleontologist. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230103429, NZRP$32.00 Publish January 2011, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Biography

Growing Up bin Laden Osama's Wife and Son Take Us Inside Their Secret World
John Logsdon, George Washington University. There has to date been no comprehensive account of how the actions taken by JFK’s administration have shaped the course of the US space program over the last 45 years. This book, based on primary source material and interviews with key participants, is such an account. It tells the story of how JFK, only four months in office, decided that the US national interest required the country to enter and win the space race by reaching the moon “before this decade is out.” It traces the evolution of his thinking and policy up until his assassination, which brought to an end his plans to moderate the space program’s goals and explore collaboration with the Soviets. $49.95 Hb, ISBN 9780230110106, NZRP$70.00 Publish January 2011, 320 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity Biography

Despite reigning for only a relatively short period of time, Richard III is one of England’s most controversial monarchs. This new biography takes a nuanced view both of Richard III’s reign and of the controversies surrounding it, exploring them in the wider context of the period. David Hipshon emphasises the need to separate the man himself from the caricature that has so often been painted. Incorporating new research and previously unpublished material, this book is a must-read for all those interested both in Richard III as king, and in the development of the English monarchy and society at the end of the medieval era and the beginning of the early modern period. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415462815, NZRP$51.00 Publish January 2011, 264 pages Routledge Quantity Biography

The Notebook records a year in the life of José Saramago, beginning on the eve of the 2008 US presidential election. In these pages, he evokes life in his beloved city of Lisbon, revisits conversations with friends, and meditates on his favorite authors. Precise observations and moments of arresting significance are rendered with pointillist detail, and together demonstrate an acute understanding of our times. Saramago dissects the financial crisis, deplores Israel’s bombardment of Gaza, traces the ongoing inquiry into the execution of the Brazilian Jean Charles de Menezes on the London Underground, and charts the transition from the era of George W. Bush to that of Barack Obama. $36.00 Hb, ISBN 9781844676149, NZRP$42.00 Published March 2010, 288 pages Verso Quantity Memoir

Guy Arnold examines how and why people migrate, including both the massive internal migrations in China and India that drive economic development and the influx of cheap labour into the advanced economies of the USA and EU. He shows that migrants are essential to advanced countries, filling skills gaps and bolstering ageing populations, and argues that the constant flow of people in all directions should be welcomed as a positive assault Now Publishing March 2011 upon outdated, narrow nationalism. $56.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745329055, NZRP$64.00 Publish January 2011, 416 pages Pluto Quantity Society & Culture 9 780745 329055

John White, Anglia Ruskin University.
An album which distilled a genre from the musical, cultural, and social ether, Portishead’s Dummy was such a complete artistic achievement that its ubiquitous successes threatened to exhaust its own potential. RJ Wheaton offers an impressionistic investigation of Dummy that imitates the cumulative structure of the album itself, piecing together portraits and interviews, impressions of time and place, cultural criticism, and a thorough exploration of the music itself. The approach focuses as much on the reception and response that Dummy engendered as it does on the original production of the album. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441194497, NZRP$29.00 Publish January 2011, 144 pages Continuum The Arts

Radiohead’s Kid A

Marvin Lin started, and is editor-in-chief, of the acclaimed online music magazine Tiny Mix Tapes.
Radiohead’s Kid A never had a chance on paper. Not only did the band have the unenviable task of following up the near-universally lauded OK Computer, but Kid A didn’t even have an official single or video. Neither did it help that the band largely abandoned rock-pop conventions for a sound that traversed glitch, free-jazz, modern composition, and krautrock. Rather than simply reinforcing Kid A’s canonical status, Marvin Lin situates the album in the temporal, examining it from various philosophical and cultural interpretations of time in order to arrive at its political and social stakes. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9780826423436, NZRP$29.00 Publish January 2011, 144 pages Continuum The Arts Quantity

Konstantin Stanislavsky was the co-founder (with Nemirovich-Danchenko) of the Moscow Art Theatre, which took the international theatre world by storm.
Of all the seminal albums to come out in 1991 the year of Nevermind, Loveless, Ten, and Out of Time, among others - none were quieter, both in volume and influence, than Spiderland, and no band more mysterious than Slint. Few single albums can lay claim to sparking an entire genre, but Spiderland - all six songs of it - laid the foundation for post rock in the 1990s. Yet for so much obvious influence, both the band and the album remain something of a puzzle. This thoroughly researched book is the first substantive attempt to break through some of the mystery surrounding Spiderland and the band that made it. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441170262, NZRP$29.00 Publish January 2011, 144 pages Continuum The Arts Quantity

Before writing his classic manual on acting, Stanislavski began writing an autobiography that he hoped would both chronicle his rich and tumultuous life and serve as a justification of his aesthetic philosophy. But when the project grew to 'impossible' lengths, his publisher insisted on many cuts and changes to keep it to its deadline and to a manageable length. The result was a version published in English in 1924, which Stanislavski hated and completely revised for a Soviet edition that came out in 1926. Now, for the first time, translator Jean Benedetti brings us Stanislavski's complete unabridged autobiography as the author himself wanted it. $65.00 Hb, ISBN 9780415436571, NZRP$74.95 Published February 2008, 464 pages Routledge Quantity The Arts

Policy and Practice on Four Continents
Josephine M. Guy, University of Nottingham, and Ian Small, University of Birmingham.
Nancy H. Hornberger, University of Pennsylvania.

Contributions by experts from each case are in turn discussed in international perspective by four counterpart experts. Starting from the premise that Indigenous language revitalization is worth doing, the focus here is on how to do it, and in particular, the role of schools in that endeavour. $52.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230285002, NZRP$64.00 Publish January 2011, 200 pages Palgrave Macmillan Literature Quantity
