LEAD TITLES The Essential Gibran Professor Suheil Bushrui is a distinguished author, poet, critic, and media personality, who has published critical studies on W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, and Samuel Beckett. He is internationally recognized as the foremost authority on Kahlil Gibran. He is currently Professor and Director of the University of Maryland Kahlil Gibran Research and Studies Project at the Centre for Heritage Resource Studies. Kahlil Gibran (1883 - 1931) was one of the twentieth century's most inspirational poets and authors. He drew upon his personal faith to write such bestsellers as The Prophet and Jesus Son of Man. Kahlil Gibran's essential style is captured in reflective poetic prose, dramatic sketches, allegories and parables, national and international addresses, and romantic writings of all kinds. Evident throughout is his abiding respect for universal human rights, the equality of men and women, and religious tolerance. This is a wonderful insight into a universal figure whose profound humanity and concern for the highest standards of integrity in both a moral and literary sense transcends the boundaries between cultures, which have all too often found themselves in opposition with one another. $17.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851689729, NZRP$22.95 Publish June 2013, 208 pages Oneworld Publications

The Girl Who Stole My Holocaust Notes from an Israeli Life Noam Chayut was born in 1979 and joined the Nachel Brigade as a conscript in 1998. He swiftly rose to the rank of officer and saw action during Operation Defensive Shield. He left the army in 2003 and later joined Breaking the Silence, a platform for former soldiers to record their testimonies about life in the military. His memoir was published in Israel in 2010 The Girl Who Stole My Holocaust is the deeply moving memoir of Noam Chayut's journey from eager Zionist conscript on the front line of Operation Defensive Shield to leading campaigner against the Israeli occupation. As he attempts to make sense of his own life as well as his place within the wider conflict around him, he slowly starts to question his soldier's calling, Israel's justifications for invasion, and the ever-present problem of historical victimhood. Noam Chayut's exploration of a young soldier's life is one of the most compelling memoirs to emerge from Israel for a long time. $34.95 Hb, ISBN 9781781680889, NZRP$49.95 Publish June 2013, 288 pages Verso
From the book: “She took from me the belief that absolute evil exists in this world, and the belief that I was fighting against it. For that girl, I embodied absolute evil . . . Since then I have been left without my Holocaust, and since then everything in my life has assumed a new meaning: belongingness is blurred, pride is lacking, belief is faltering, contrition is heightening, forgiveness is being born.”

HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY 24/7 Terminal Capitalism and the Ends of Sleep Jonathan Crary is Meyer Schapiro Professor of Modern Art and Theory at Columbia University, USA. His books include Techniques of the Observer and Suspensions of Perception. 24/7 explores some of the ruinous consequences of the expanding, nonstop processes of twenty-first-century capitalism. The marketplace now operates twenty-four hours of every day and demands our constant activity, eroding forms of community, political expression, and the fabric of everyday life. Jonathan Crary examines the way this interminable non-time blurs any separation between an intensified, ubiquitous consumerism and the strategies of control and surveillance. He argues that human sleep and dreaming provide exemplary, if elusive, models for other thresholds at which society might defend or protect itself. $19.95 Hb, ISBN 9781781680933, NZRP$24.95 Publish June 2013, 144 pages Verso
From the book: “24/7 is a time of indifference, against which the fragility of human life is increasingly inadequate and within which sleep has no necessity or inevitability. In relation to labor, it renders plausible, even normal, the idea of working without pause, without limits. It is aligned with what is inanimate, inert or unageing. ...In related ways, 24/7 is inseparable from environmental catastrophe in its declaration of permanent expenditure, of endless wastefulness for its sustenance, in its terminal disruption of the cycles and seasons on which ecological integrity depends.” Quantity

Aisthesis Scenes from the Aesthetic Regime of Art Jacques Ranciere is Emeritus Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris-VIII, France. His books include The Politics of Aesthetics, On the Shores of Politics, Short Voyages to the Land of the People, Proletarian Nights, Staging the People and The Emancipated Spectator. Composed in a series of scenes, Aisthesis-Rancière's definitive statement on the aesthetic-takes its reader from Dresden in 1764 to New York in 1941. Along the way, we view the Belvedere Torso with Winckelmann, accompany Hegel to the museum and Mallarmé to the Folies-Bergère, attend a lecture by Emerson, visit exhibitions in Paris and New York, factories in Berlin, and film sets in Moscow and Hollywood. Rancière uses these sites and events-some famous, others forgotten-to ask what becomes art and what comes of it. He shows how a regime of artistic perception and interpretation was constituted and transformed by erasing the specificities of the different arts, as well as the borders that separated them from ordinary experience. This incisive study provides a history of artistic modernity far removed from the conventional postures of modernism. $44.95 Hb, ISBN 9781781680896, NZRP$54.95 Publish June 2013, 304 pages Verso “Jacques Ranciere’s Aisthesis transforms the field of aesthetic philosophy.” - Liberation From the book: “...It shows how art, far from foundering upon these intrusions of the prose of the world, ceaselessly redifined itself, exchanging, for example, the idealities of history, form, and painting for those of movement, light and gaze, building its own domain by blurring the specificities that define the arts, and the boundaries that separate them from the prosaic world.” Quantity

Conquest and Colonisation
The Normans in Britain, 1066-1100, Second Edition
How Religion Must Evolve in a Scientific Age
Brian Golding was formerly Reader in History at the University of Southampton, UK.
Rev. Dr. Galen Guengerich serves as the senior minister of All Souls in New York City.
In this revised and updated new edition, Brian Golding explores the background to the Norman invasion, the process of colonisation and the impact of the Normans on English society. An accessible synthesis of the Norman Conquest and its impacts. Revised and updated throughout to incorporate the latest scholarship and research, this book contains more discussion of key topics such as towns, gender and the peasantry, with an updated bibliography and extensive notes.
Having left an upbringing in a family of Mennonite preachers to discover his own experience of God, Galen Guengerich understands the modern American struggle to combine modern world views with outdated religious dogma. Drawing upon his own experiences, he proposes that just as humanity has had to evolve its conception of the universe to coincide with new scientific discoveries, we are long overdue in evolving our concept of God. Gone are the days of the magical, supernatural deity in the sky who visits wrath upon those who have not followed his word. Especially in a scientific age, we need an experience of a God we can believe in-an experience that grounds our morality, unites us in community, and engages us with a world that still holds more mystery than answers.

The Wars of the Roses
Lenin, Religion, and Theology
Roland T. Boer, University of Newcastle, UK.
Anthony James Pollard, University of Teesside, UK.
The book pursues the implications of linking Lenin with theology, which is not a project that has been undertaken thus far. What does this inveterate atheist know for describing religion as 'spiritual booze' (a glass of Marx's 'opium of the people') have to do with theology? This book reveals more than might initially be expected, so much so that Lenin and the Russian Revolution cannot be understood without this complex engagement with theology. It also seeks to bring Lenin into recent debates over the intersections between theology and the Left, between the Bible and the political thought. The key names involved in this debate are reasonably wellknowned, including Alain Badiou, Slavoj Zizek, Giorgio Agamben, Antonio Negri, Terry Eagleton, Ernst Bloch, Theodor Adorno, Louise Althusser, Gilles Deleuze, and Felix Guattari.
The civil wars of the first half of the fifteenth century still stand in the popular imagination as the period of greatest anarchy in English history. While historians have long taken a more measured view, controversy still surrounds their interpretation. In this revised edition of his revaluation of the Wars of the Roses, A. J. Pollard has incorporated into the text the product of new research and consideration of the debates which have emerged since the book was first published in 1988. These include the new stress on ‘constitutional’ history, intensified dispute about the origins of the wars, and recent reinterpretations of the careers of some of the principal personalities.

Transcending Greedy Money
The Epic Story of the First Ascent
Interreligious Solidarity for Just Relations
Mick Conefrey is author of How to Climb Mont Blanc in a Skirt.
Ulrich Duchrow, University of Heidelberg, Germany and Franz Hinkelammert, Departamento Ecuménico de Investigaciones in San José, Costa Rica.
Conefrey reveals that what has gone down in history as a supremely well-planned ascent was in fact beset by crises - both on and off the mountain. To succeed, team leader Colonel John Hunt and his team had to draw on unimaginable skill and determination, as well as sheer British ingenuity. Not only a gripping true story of courage and adventure, this is a fascinating window into the media contest to cover this seminal event. The Times had exclusive access to the team but the Daily Mail and other papers used subterfuge and shenanigans to get their scoops. Revealing the answers to long-enduring controversies - did Tenzing or Hillary actually reach the top first? - and exploring the legacy of this great ascent, it is the perfect way to commemorate a year of British sporting triumph.

This major work offers an historical description and systematic analysis of the root causes of this global economic crisis, which the authors understand as a crisis of western civilization. Secondly, they assume (and prove) that the religions of the Axial Age were shaped by the suffering of people, deepened by the emergence of a new economy - based on money, private property and interest. They assume that the proven convergence of the Axial Age religions in responding to the social, psychological (and already ecological) consequences of the new economy can inform, motivate and empower faith communities and their members to join hands with social movements towards a new personal and collective culture of life.

HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY The Notion of Authority
Synaesthesia and the Ancient Senses
Alexandre Kojeve (1902-68) is most widely known for his lectures on Hegel, Introduction to the Reading of Hegel. Written in the 1940s in Nazi-occupied France, he uncovers the conceptual premises of four primary models of authority and examines the practical application of their derivative variations from the Enlightenment to Vichy France. This foundational text, here translated into English for the first time, is the missing piece in any discussion of sovereignty and political authority, ready to take its place alongside the work of Weber, Arendt, Schmitt, Agamben or Dumézil. This is a short and sophisticated introduction to Kojève's philosophy of right, while in the context of his biography its significance resides in the fact it captures his puzzling intellectual interests at a time when he retired from the profession of philosophy and was about to become one of the pioneers of the Common Market and the idea of the European Union.

Shakespeare on Robben Island
Revolution and Alienation
Ashwin Desai teaches at the Workers' College in Durban, South Africa. Desai is also the author of the acclaimed We ARE the Poors: Community Struggles in Post-Apartheid Africa.
Clive Bloom, Middlesex University, UK.
The prison authorities on the apartheid South African Robben Island were obsessed with censoring the news that prisoners could receive of the outside world. Through the memories and biographical accounts written by former political inmates, the book evocatively brings to life the voices of prisoners. $39.95 Hb ISBN 9780230313828 Publish June 2013 264 pages Palgrave Macmillan NZRP$49.95
Victoria's Madmen tells the stories of a host of figures who came to exemplify a contradictory history of the Victorian Age. Clive Bloom mixes extraordinary marginal voices with famous - and infamous - figures, from messiahs like Richard Brothers; writers such as Oscar Wilde; revolutionaries and radicals like Karl Marx; madmen like Jack the Ripper; orientalists and guerrilla fighters such as T. E. Lawrence; worshippers of Pan such as Arthur Machen, as well as the Latvian anarchists who killed three policemen in the East End of London. This is the story of those who were outcasts by temperament and choice; the non-conformists of the Victorian Age. Clive Bloom's readable account of the dark underbelly of Victoria's Britain perfectly captures the unrest bubbling under the surface of strait-laced Victorian society.

The Future of the Image
In The Future of the Image, Jacques Rancière develops a fascinating new concept of the image in contemporary art, showing how art and politics have always been intrinsically intertwined. Covering a range of art movements, filmmakers such as Godard and Bresson, and thinkers such as Foucault, Deleuze, Adorno, Barthes, Lyotard and Greenberg, Rancière shows that contemporary theorists of the image are suffering from religious tendencies. He argues that there is a stark political choice in art: it can either reinforce a radical democracy, or create a new reactionary mysticism. For Rancière there is never a pure art: the aesthetic revolution must always embrace egalitarian ideals. $23.00 Pb ISBN 9781844672974 February 2009 147 pages Verso NZRP$29.00

Synaesthesia and the Ancient Senses presents a radical reappraisal of antiquity's textures, flavours, and aromas, sounds and sights. It offers both a fresh look at society in the ancient world and an opportunity to deepen the reading of classical literature. The book will appeal to readers in classical society and literature, philosophy and cultural history. All Greek and Latin is translated and technical matters are explained for the non-specialist. The introduction sets the ancient senses within the history of aesthetics and the subsequent essays explores the senses throughout the classical period and on to the modern reception of classical literature.
This collection of first-hand accounts from some of the most intelligent and articulate of those who fled Nazi Germany and make a new life in Britain, provide insights about their experiences that are often poignant, sometimes surprising and always illuminating. Jews expelled from Nazi Germany have a wry, but often affectionate, story to tell; while people from the former imperial territories share their amazement at the way in which the received view of the country differs from what they had been taught about it. Their testimonies also reveal the intellectual, cultural and social gifts brought by outsiders, gifts which enrich and enhance the life of the country that opened its doors to them.

CURRENT AFFAIRS & POLITICS The Revenge of History The Battle for the Twenty-First Century Seumas Milne is a regular columnist for the Guardian and its former Comments Editor. He is the author of The Enemy Within and co-author of Beyond the Casino Economy. The Revenge of History is a powerful corrective to the discredited dominant account of the first decade of the twenty-first century. As Seumas Milne shows in a panoramic narrative that reaches from 9/11 to beyond the Arab uprisings, crisis and war have turned the orthodoxies of a generation on their head. The neoliberal market, hailed as the only economic option, crashed with devastating consequences; calamitous western military interventions demonstrated the limits of US global power; the rise of China challenged both; while Latin America has embraced social and economic alternatives that were said no longer to exist. In a culture dominated by eager apologists of power, Milne has consistently written against the grain. This book offers a compelling perspective on the convulsions that have brought us to today’s crisis and the shape of the emerging politics of the future – and an indictment of a global and corporate empire in decline. $22.95 Pb, ISBN 9781781680919, NZRP$29.95 Publish June 2013, 400 pages Verso “Reading Seumas Milne, one often has a feeling of physical relief: finally someone not only sees the truth but articulates it with thrilling erudition and moral clarity. Tracking a decade of ruinous lies from the right and unheeded warnings from the left, this is a book with an urgent message: it’s time to win more than arguments.” -Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine.

This book is based on studies of Chinese involvement in a wide cross section of regimes, including trade, finance, intellectual property rights, climate change, public heath, labour, and technical standards. Through detailed analysis of different areas of global governance, the contributors to this volume argue that China has become most adept at regimes that serve the needs of industrial producers, and has moved less up the learning curve in those regimes focused on other actors, such as labour, or addressing other problems, such as climate change.

The Bush Administrations and Saddam Hussein
Islamophobia in America
Deciding on Conflict
Carl W. Ernst, University of North Carolina, USA.
Alex R. Hybel, Connecticut College, USA and Justin Matthew Kaufman.
Islamophobia is the name given to the virulent anti-Islamic prejudice that has been hyped by the news media and seized upon by cynical politicians. Five essays by six specialists on Islam in America provide important insights into Islamophobia as a conflict over American identity during a time of crisis. The authors clarify the way that differences of religion, race, and gender have been used to portray Muslims as threatening "out-groups," just as other minorities (Catholics, Jews, blacks) have been attacked in the past. The result is a valuable and thought-provoking analysis of the tactics for denying full citizenship to a minority religious group.
The Anatomy of Intolerance
This book presents a vital and unsettling analysis of the foreign policy-making processes of the two Bush administrations prior to the attacks on Iraq. In a systematic and thorough comparison, Hybel and Kaufman show how both presidents used historical analogies uncritically to evaluate information, relied on instinct to formulate decisions, drew on moral language to justify their choices, and refused to reconsider their original decisions so that none would question their courage and motivation to 'do the right thing.'

This book analyzes Americanization, De-Americanization, and racialized ethnic groups in America. It shows that America's cultural homogeneity, which is based on "whiteness," has important consequences for racialized ethnic groups in America. The question, then, of who is an American becomes overriding. Although racialized ethnic groups remain unassimilated into the dominant culture, the recognition and celebration of the non-dominant cultures are important for multiculturalism. However, non-dominant cultures are tied to cultural otherness. Cultural otherness is looked upon as Un-Americanness. For this reason, there is a need to move beyond multiculturalism. "Postmulticulturalism," then, would be the new possibility.

In 2010, the Labour Party of Great Britain suffered its worst General Election defeat since the 1930s (with one exception), bringing to an end thirteen years of New Labour government. Since then, the debate over both the legacy of New Labour and the future direction of the party has been widespread, yet so far there has been little input from a social democratic viewpoint. The chapters in this book cover a wide range of issues and provide new perspectives in the areas of economic, social and foreign policy with a central focus on the defence of the state. Containing high-profile contributions from journalists, academics, policy-makers and think tanks, The Socialist Way provides new directions for electoral success and seeks to show that there need not be a trade-off between power and principle.

Each year, 200 million workers from China's vast rural interior travel between cities and provinces in search of employment: the largest human migration in history. For two years, the awardwinning journalist Hsiao-Hung Pai traveled across China visiting laborers on Olympic construction sites, in the coal mines and brick kilns of the Yellow River region, and at the factories of the Pearl River Delta. She witnessed the outcome of the 2009 riots in the Muslim province of Xinjiang; saw towns in rubble more than a year after the colossal earthquake in Sichuan; and was reunited with longlost relatives, estranged since her mother's family fled for Taiwan during the Civil War.
Edited by Maciej J. Bartkowski, International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, USA.
Media and the Arab Uprisings
This unique book brings to light the littleknown, but powerful roles that civil resistance has played in national liberation struggles throughout history. Ranging from the American Revolution to Kosovo in the 1990s, from Egypt under colonial rule to present-day West Papua and Palestine, the authors consider several key questions. What kinds of civilian-based nonviolent strategy and tactics have been used in liberation struggles? Not least, how did nonviolent resistance influence national identities and socioeconomic and political institutions both prior to and after liberation, and why has this history been so often ignored? The story that emerges is a compelling one of the agency of thousands and even millions of ordinary people as they used nonviolent force in the course of struggles against foreign subjugation.
In this book, Naomi Sakr considers the new vision of journalism which emerged as the struggle for power and influence intensified among Egypt's different interest groups. She also charts recent transformations in Egyptian journalism, analysing diverse approaches to converged media and the place of participatory cross-media networks in expanding and developing the country's body of professional journalists. Finally, this book analyses journalists' initiatives for restructuring publiclyowned media and securing a safe and open environment in which to work.

BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR What Do You Buy the Children of the Terrorist Who Tried to Kill Your Wife? A Memoir of Jerusalem David Harris-Gershon is a popular online columnist on Israel/Palestine for Tikkun magazine, the Jerusalem Post, and Daily Kos, the most active and most read progressive politics website in the world. He received his MFA from the University of North Carolina and his essays and creative writing have been published in numerous venues. David Harris-Gershon and his wife, Jamie, moved to Jerusalem full of hope. Then, in the midst of the historic cease-fire between Israel and the Palestinians, a bomb shrieked through Hebrew University's cafeteria. Jamie was hurled across the room, her body burned and sliced with shrapnel; the friends sitting next to her were instantly killed. David was desperate for answers - why now? why here? why my wife? But when a doctor handed him some of shrapnel removed from Jamie's body, he refused to accept that this piece of metal made him 'one of us' - a forever traumatized victim.

Fawzia Koofi is Afghanistan's first female Parliament speaker.
For the first time, Ciro Bustos, Che's righthand man in the struggle for Argentina, tells his story. As a young man inspired by the example of Cuba, Bustos was determined to bring revolution to the home country he shared with his hero. After a failed attempt to liberate Argentina, it was not until 1966 that he was contacted by the Cubans once again and told, "Che wants to see you." Under false papers, Bustos crossed the border into Bolivia, where Che was in hiding with his guerrilla forces; and here, for the first time, Che shared his plans for a continental revolution. In this fascinating memoir, Ciro Bustos tells us a story only he is able to recount: what really happened in Bolivia in 1967 and why he did not betray Che.

Born to the second of her father's seven wives in rural Afghanistan, Fawzia Koofi's mother who had hoped for a son - left her to die in the sun after birth. Despite a childhood of abuse and deprivation in a notoriously sexist society, she rose above her fate to become the first female Speaker of Parliament. Along the way, she faced the murders of her father, brother, and husband, and numerous attempts on her life. Here, she shares her amazing story, punctuated by a series of poignant letters she wrote to her two daughters before each political trip - letters describing the future and freedoms she dreamed of for them and all their countrywomen.
Influenced by the pervasive media and cultural messages suggesting that science had eclipsed Mother Nature, Zoll-like millions of women around the world-postpones marriage and motherhood. By 40, she is finally ready to embrace motherhood but nature does not cooperate. She and her husband sign up for fertility treatments but neither one is prepared for the science-fiction world they have entered; a world full of medical seduction, capitalist conception and bioethical quagmires. Desperate to conceive, they turn into fertility junkies drawn into the cold, sterile world of the laboratory, where they increasingly find themselves disconnected from nature, their values, and each other. Eventually, they realize that the unregulated multi-billion-dollar U.S. fertility industry has promised her and millions of other couples far more than it can deliver.

The Diaries of Isabelle Eberhardt
Paula Gooder, King's College, UK.
Edited by Elizabeth Kershaw; introduction by Annette Kobak translated by Nina De Voogd.
From the language of Shakespeare to political campaigns in the US, the Bible's influence is all around us. And yet, upon reading it, we are met not by one text but by many: a complex mix of history, parable, law, teaching, and prophecy. This authoritative introduction guides the reader in how to approach this multifaceted text, and explores its enduring influence on Western culture, from Renaissance art to the controversial film The Last Temptation of Christ. Covering its history, translation, interpretation, and selection of the cannon, Gooder provides a comprehensive and illuminating framework for understanding the Bible. With informative textboxes focussing on key details and an infectious enthusiasm for the topic, this wideranging primer will be of invaluable benefit to those of any and no faith alike.
In her short life Isabelle Eberhardt (1877-1904) came to be known as the ultimate enigma and representative of everything that seemed dangerous in nineteenth-century society. Born the illegitimate daughter of an aristocratic Russian emigree she was a cross-dresser and sensualist, an experienced drug-taker and a transgressor of boundaries: a European reborn in the desert as an Arab and Muslim, a woman who reinvented herself as a man, wandering the Sahara on horseback. A mysterious attempt was made on her life and even her eventual death was ambiguous: she drowned in the desert at the age of twenty-seven. This is a fascinating account of her strange and passionate nomadic lifestyle; an evocative and deeply personal record of her torments, her search for inspiration as a writer, her spirituality and the intense color and fire of her living.

When the War on Terror began, Briton Joe Glenton felt compelled to serve his nation. He passed through basic training and deployed to Afghanistan in 2006. What he saw overseas left him disillusioned, and he returned home manifesting symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder and becoming increasingly politicized. When he refused to return for a second tour, he was denied his right to object and called "a coward and a malingerer." He went absent without leave and left the country, returning later to the U.K. voluntarily to campaign against the wars. The military accused him of desertion and threatened years in prison. Soldier Box tells the story of Glenton's extraordinary journey from a promising soldier to a rebel against what he came to see as unjustified military action.

Widely revered as the father of Western literature, Homer was the author of The Iliad and The Odyssey, the epic poems which immortalised such names as Achilles, Cyclops, Menelaus, and Helen of Troy. In this vivid introduction, Elton Barker and Joel Christensen celebrate the complexity, innovation and sheer excitement of Homer's two great works, and investigate the controversy surrounding the man behind the myths - asking who he was and whether he even existed. From soap operas to Salman Rushdie, the authors also highlight just how much we owe Homer and why he has been so influential.
The memoirs of Wasif Jawhariyyeh are a remarkable treasure trove of writings on the life, culture, music, and history of Jerusalem. They cover a period of enormous and turbulent change in Jerusalem's history, but change lived and recalled from the daily vantage point of the street storyteller. Reflecting the times of Ottoman rule, the British mandate, and the run-up to the founding of the state of Israel, this book offers intimate glimpses of people and events, and of forces promoting confined, divisive ethnic and sectarian identities. Wasif reveals the communitarian ethos that runs so powerfully through Jerusalem's past. And that offers perhaps the best hope for its future.

As the Western-Iranian impasse continues to dominate international affairs, politicians and the media confidently proclaim Iran the greatest threat to the Western World. Revealing the true face of this troubled country, acclaimed expert Homa Katouzian delves deep into Iran's past, exploring how an ancient civilisation at a cross-road of diverse dynasties and religions grew to become an ethnically, linguistically and culturally rich nation still bound by the Persian tradition. Major political events and key figures are brought to life as centuries of authoritarian and arbitarary rule, chaos and revolution are unravelled and analysed, shedding new light on modern Iran and making this an indispensable resource for understanding the current situation in the Middle East.

Across the world anxiety, stress and depression are on the increase, a trend which looks set to continue as austerity measures bite. The official response tells people that unhappiness is just a personal problem, rather than a social one. The Therapy Industry offers a concise, accessible and critical overview of the world of psychological practice in Britain and the USA. Paul Moloney argues that much therapy is geared towards compliance and acceptance of the status quo, rather than attempting to facilitate social change. It fundamentally challenges our conceptions of happiness and wellbeing. Moloney argues that therapeutic and applied psychology have little basis in science, that their benefits are highly exaggerated and they prosper because they serve the interests of power. Quantity

A discouraging number of economic, social and environmental disasters have occurred within the United States over the past few years, all seemingly resulting from the mistakes and errors of business firms and the inattention and delays of government agencies. The blowout, explosion and fire that occurred at a deepwater oil well within the Gulf of Mexico is one example. The total collapse of the residential mortgage industry, and the ensuing economic downturn across the full country, is another. This book's focus is not on ascribing blame but on prescribing prevention. Prevention is basically simple, but it will require a considerable broadening in both the nature and the extent of managerial responsibility.

Capitalism Hits The Fan
The Global Economic Meltdown and What to Do About It, Second Edition
A Guide to the Practical and Behavioural Aspects of Investment Strategy
Richard D. Wolff, University of Massachusets, USA.
Guy Fraser-Sampson, Cass Business School, UK.
Wolff explains why capitalism's global crisis persists, why bank bailouts and austerity policies fail, and why deepening economic inequality now generates historic social tensions and conflicts and worsens the ongoing crisis. This book chronicles one economist's growing alarm and insights as he watched, from 2005 onwards, the economic crisis build, burst, and then change the world. The argument here differs sharply from most other explanations offered by politicians, media commentators, and other academics. Step by step, Wolff shows that deep economic structures account for the crisis. The book's essays engage the long-overdue public discussion about capitalism as a system and about the basic structural changes needed not only to fix today's broken economy but to prevent future crises.

Many of the world's investors have never undertaken a proper strategic planning exercise. The result is frequently based around a "one size fits all" approach. The author shows that the process should begin with an honest and thorough analysis of the organization itself, and then consider how its investment objectives may best be met within the confines of its resources, decision structures, and expertise. Behavioural and organizational issues will quickly rear their heads and threaten to derail the process, but the book explains how to identify and deal with these. Along the way the book offers fresh new perspectives on such well-worn concepts as liquidity and volatility, and shows that whether these should be viewed as "good" or "bad" actually varies with different circumstances.

From Chinese Brand Culture to Global Brands
Jonathan Schroeder, Rochester Institute of Technology, USA; Janey Borgerson, University of Exeter Business School, UK and Zhiyan Wu, Shanghai Institute of Foreign Trade, China. This is an expert and insightful look at Chinese brand culture and its capacity to serve as a complement to existing model of brand globalization. Rather than explore Western branding in Chinese contexts, this book shows how some succesful Chinese brands that are reaching a global audience build upon significant aspects of Chinese culture and history. This book examines how Chinese brands are perceived both internationally and in China, and argues that branding strategy that draws upon a more self-consciously Chinese aesthatic would leave Chinese brand culture poised for global success.

Popular anger against bankers and the financial system has never been higher, yet the practical workings of the system remain opaque to many people. The Hereticâ€™s Guide to Global Finance aims to bridge the gap between protest slogans and practical proposals for reform. As a derivatives-broker turned campaigner, Brett Scott has a unique understanding of life inside and outside the system. It shows how financial knowledge can be used to build effective social and environmental campaigns. Scott covers aspects frequently overlooked, such as the cultural dimensions of the financial sector, and considers major issues such as agricultural speculation, carbon markets and tar-sands financing. The book shows how activists can tap into the internal dynamics of the sector to disrupt it and showcases the growing alternative finance movement.

Set out in a succinct and accessible manner, it uses case studies to illustrate the approaches and tactics that smaller countries can use, even when faced with financial and human resource shortages, or pressure tactics from larger countries. While it focuses on trade, insights are applicable to other international negotiations such as aid, financial regulation, and climate change.

Many leaders have problems exerting influence in the right ways and are uncertain about the 'how' of leadership decisions. De Cremer uses the most innovative and recent scientific insights to explain the causes of procrastination and why this behaviour poses such a significant threat to any type of leader wanting to promote trust and efficiency within the company. Using case studies of well known leaders, he explores decisions they have made and actions they have taken to show where procrastination and inaction has caused failure, and what can be learnt from these examples.

Jill Dolan, Princeton University, USA. She is the author of Utopia in Performance: Finding Hope at the Theatre and The Feminist Spectator as Critic, among other books. She writes The Feminist Spectator blog at www. feministspectator.blogspot.com.
Most talent management books focus on the top talents and how to get them into the organisation, leaving thousands of workers without training or organisational suport. Dani Monroe argues that these workers are the key to organisational success and that talent programs have to be developed to bring these critical and overlooked ones into the limelight to focus on their ‘untapped’ potential. By focusing on mid-level or ‘B’/’C’ employees, this book helps leaders to better understand the pool of traits and skills that they have access to in their existing workforce. Using stories of the resourcefulness, resilience and resolve in those who ‘tapped ‘ into their talent, this book shows how sucessfully mining key traits and skills is essential to thrive in today’s competitive market.

The Film Handbook examines the current state of filmmaking and how film language, technique and aesthetics are being utilised for today's ‘digital film' productions. It reflects on how critical analysis' of film underpins practice and story, and how developing an autonomous ‘vision' will best aid student creativity. The Film Handbook offers practical guidance on a range of traditional and independent ‘guerrilla' film production methods, from developing script ideas and the logistics of planning the shoot to cinematography, sound and directing practices. Film professionals share advice of their creative and practical experiences shooting both on digital and film forms. The Film Handbook relates theory to the filmmaking process and includes documentary, narrative and experimental forms.
9.5 Theses on Art and Class and Other Writings seeks to show how a clear understanding of class makes sense of what is at stake in a broad number of contemporary art's most persistent debates, from definitions of political art to the troubled status of "outsider" and street art to the question of how we maintain faith in art itself.

Anywhere or Not at All
Hollywood in the New Millennium
The Philosophy of Contemporary Art
The American Film Industry
Peter Osborne, Kingston University, UK.
Tino Balio is Emeritus Professor of Communication Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. A former scholar at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, he has written widely on the historical development of Hollywood and the American film industry. He is author of United Artists: 1919-1950 - The Company Built by the Stars (2009) and Grand Design: Hollywood as a Modern Business Enterprise, 1930-1939 (1996).
Anywhere or Not at All is a major philosophical intervention in art theory that challenges the terms of established positions through a new approach at once philosophical, historical, social and art-critical. Developing the position that "contemporary art is postconceptual art," the book progresses through a dual series of conceptual constructions and interpretations of particular works to assess the art from a number of perspectives: contemporaneity and its global context; art against aesthetic; the Romantic pre-history of conceptual art; the multiplicity of modernisms; transcategoriality; conceptual abstraction; photographic ontology; digitalization; and the institutional and existential complexities of art-space and art-time. Anywhere or Not at All maps out the conceptual space for an art that is both critical and contemporary in the era of global capitalism.

So begins In the House Un-American, where Carlos ben Carlos Rossman, wannabe heir to the American poet William Carlos Williams and distant cousin of Kafka's boy immigrant sensation Karl Rossman, is forever an absurdist stumble away from falling into a satirical wormhole.

As he journeys from the golden age of Spain to the Statue of Liberty among East Coast Jewish Buddhist pilgrims going West, Carlos reinvents the rest of us as he remakes himself . In a Mecca of his own making in the heart of America, Carlos offers a prophetic new vision reconciling Islam and the American.

In Ben Barka Lane we see the Morocco of the late 1960s through the eyes of a young political exile from Iraq-its beauty and misery, its unforgettable people. In this contemporary classic, Mahmoud Saeed offers us a unique portrait of a time and place, and a tale of the passion, politics, vengeance, and betrayal that take place there. "A landmark of the modern Arab novel," in the words of one critic, Ben Barka Lane is now, at last, in English translation, as compelling today as when first published. Quantity

Zigzag through the Bitter-Orange Trees was first published in Greece, where it was acclaimed as "the best novel of the decade." It weaves together the stories of four disparate young people in modern Greece: Lia, dying in the hospital from a mysterious virus; her brother Sid, the disaffected wanderer, her only remaining connection to the outside world; Lia's nurse Sotiris, an unstable blend of cowardice and desire; and the twelveyear-old rebel Nina, who dreams to break away from the humdrum life around her. Their four unforgettable voices mingle in a poignant black comedy of isolation and yearning, illusion and vengeance, and the hunger for connection. With disarming power, Sotiropoulos portrays the conflicted world of the young-passionate and cynical, beautiful and grotesque.

LITERATURE & LANGUAGE Orwell's Cough Diagnosing the Medical Maladies and Last Gasps of the Great Writers John Ross is Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a hospitalist at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston. His original investigation of Shakespeare's battles with syphilis drew international media attention, including coverage on Jon Stewart's The Daily Show. Did Shakespeare's doctors addle his brain with mercury, leading to his early retirement? Was Jane Eyre inspired by the plagued school that claimed the Brontë clan? Did writing 1984 kill George Orwell? Many of our most beloved scribes struggled to conquer not just writer's block but a bevy of medical maladies. John Ross opens his surgery to consult with the great writers and their literary and medical muses. Ross peppers his tales with vivid vignettes of medical practice through the centuries, from Shakespeare's cloaked visits to Southwark to cure his unsavoury rashes to the arsenic-and-horse-serum jabs given for Yeats's fevers. With novelistic flair and deep expertise, Ross reveals a wholly absorbing view of the writer's life - the perfect gift for the doctor, aspiring novelist, or literary addict in your life. $19.95 Pb, ISBN 9781780742250, NZRP$24.95 Publish June 2013, 304 pages Oneworld Publications “Superb...

How English Became the Global Language
Writing a First Novel
David Northrup was a Professor of History at Boston College, USA.
Edited by Karen Stevens, Senior Lecturer in Creative Writing at the University of Chichester, UK.
Reflections on the Journey
While there have been many books on the history of globalization to date, most have stressed economics and politics. Cultural globalization, of which the emergence of English as the world's first global language is a prime example, has been comparatively neglected. In this book, the first written about the globalization of the English language by a professional historian, the exploration of English's global ascendancy receives its proper historical due. Historians have traditionally left the history of language to linguists and other language specialists, and this brief, accessible volume breaks new ground in its organization, emphasis on causation, and conclusions.
This invaluable collection of essays by published novelists focuses on the journey of writing a first novel. These writers generously offer insight and advice on the joys and challenges that new authors of fiction will inevitably encounter along the way. A literary agent and a publisher add their own professional perspectives.

The Andalucia Guide
Michael Jacobs, University of Glasgow, UK.
New Food from Mexico
In this masterly book, Michael Jacobs looks with fresh eyes at all the traditional delights of Andalucia while doing full justice to the lesser-known aspects of the region. He examines the underrated local food and drink, the extraordinarily varied natural scenery, the composers and writers who created the romantic myths and legends of the nineteenth century, the strange legacy of Lorca and the Spanish Civil War. Andalucia's Moorish remains, its outstanding prehistoric and classical heritage and its exuberant Renaissance and Baroque monuments make it one of the richest regions of Europe for the visitor. Nearly a hundred Andalucian villages and towns are described in the gazetteer, some of which-Seville, Granada, Cordoba and Cadiz-are as lovely and as haunting as anywhere in the world.

A Traveller's Guide to D-Day and the Battle for Normandy covers the period from June to August 1944 when the Allies stormed ashore, fought their way through the bocage country of Normandy, and eventually broke out through the Avranches gap. A new kind of guidebook. This title gives comprehensive information about major battles and battlefields, memorials, sites, cemeteries, and statues, how to get there; what to see, contemporary eyewitness accounts, and the then-and-now photographs and maps. Through their own words, we learn the feelings of those young men and women of many nationalities who fought and died. Contemporary eyewitness accounts are woven into the fabric of this book, which has an immediacy and vividness that marks a new departure in guidebooks.
A vivid selection from biographies, novels, letters, poems, diaries, and memoirs traces the story of St. Petersburg from earliest times. Through these pieces, we can observe the city's foundation by Peter the Great on the marshy shores of the gulf of Finland, see how literature and the other arts flowered so strongly during the nineteenth century, and observe the often violent turning points of its later history. First hand accounts tell of the 1825 Decembrists standing in the snow in Senate Square, refusing to accept Nicholas I as Tsar, being shot down where they stood and of the imprisonment of Dostoevksy and the duel that killed Pushkin. Designed for on-the-spot use by visitors to the city, and as a highly readable anthology for the armchair traveller, this imaginative guide includes maps, engravings, and notes on history, art, architecture, and everyday city life.
