Tony Milligan is an Honorary Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Aberdeen, UK. He has published in a number of academic and popular journals, including Philosophy, Ratio, Journal of Applied Ethics, Think and Philosophy Now. Issues to do with animal ethics remain at the heart of public debate. In Beyond Animal Rights, Tony Milligan goes beyond standard discussions of animal ethics to explore the ways in which we personally relate to other creatures through our diet, as pet owners and as beneficiaries of experimentation. The book connects with our duty to act and considers why previous discussions have failed to result in a change in the way that we live our lives. The author asks a crucial question: what sort of people do we have to become if we are to sufficiently improve the ways in which we relate to the non-human? Appealing to both consequences and character, he argues that no improvement will be sufficient if it fails to set humans on a path towards a tolerable and sustainable future. Focussing on our direct relations to the animals we connect with the book offers guidance on all the relevant issues, including veganism and vegetarianism, the organic movement, pet ownership, and animal experimentation. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441157539 Publish October 2010, 192 pages Continuum Quantity 9 781441 157539 Society & Culture

Climategate to Cancun
The Verso Book of Dissent
As a noted commentator on the political, social and psychological history of our time, Christopher Booker has in recent years, through his weekly Sunday Telegraph column, become the most conspicuous ‘global warming sceptic’ in the British press. Richard North is a political analyst who has been a research director in the European Parliament and was formerly a nationally-known consultant on public health and food safety. He has co-authored several books with Christopher Booker.
From Spartacus to the Shoe-thrower of Baghdad
Today when it comes to climate change, history is a closed book. Global warming has become the mother of all scares, transfixing governments and their peoples. We are set to embark on a multi-million dollar attempt to stop the planet frying. Since the disaster of Copenhagen the plot has thickened immeasurably. The Copenhagen agenda will finally come to rest in November 2010 in Cancun, Mexico. Booker and North examine all the political manoeuvrings, the scientific developments, the negotiations, the noises off. Global warming has developed a life of its own and no one seems to have the wherewithal to kill it off. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9781441175762 Publish October 2010, 256 pages Continuum Current Affairs

This is Rana Husseini’s hard-hitting and controversial examination of honour crimes. Common in many traditional societies around the world, as well as in migrant communities in Europe and the USA, they involve a ‘punishment’ - often death or disfigurement - carried out by a relative to restore the family’s honour.

An Israeli in Palestine
The Pope is Not Gay!
Jeff Halper, an Israeli Professor of Anthropology, has been a leading figure within the Israeli peace movement for over thirty years, and the head of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions.
Anarchist and poet, Angelo Quattrocchi (19452009) reported from London, Paris and the US for Italian newspapers in the 1960s and 1970s.
Jeff Halper throws a harsh light on the IsraeliPalestinian conflict from the point of view of a critical insider. An Israeli in Palestine records Halper’s journey ‘beyond the membrane’ that shields his people from the harsh realities of Palestinian life to his ‘discovery’ that he was actually living in another country: Palestine. Without dismissing the legitimacy of his own country, he realises that Israel is defined by its oppressive relationship to the Palestinians.

While many have documented empires maintained through military strength, power derived solely from economic might is a more modern phenomenon. Read describes the factors that give rise to economic empires, and documents how these same forces lead to their downfall.

A History of Pleasure in Imperial Rome
2000 Years of Riots, Rebels and Revolts
Dr Ray Laurence, University of Birmingham.
Clive Bloom, Middlesex University, UK.
By the time of the emperors, the Romans had created the world’s first global empire, and plundered the provinces for produce to be eaten, planted or displayed as novelties. With these attributes of civilisation came other trappings of Roman culture: lavish entertainments, elaborate dinner parties and vice. The world of pleasure became a defining feature of the Romans, and this book explores how they pursued sensual delights - from steamy bathhouses to stately country villas; the excesses of the festivals to the rich culture of music, dance and song and sex, as both unrestrained and puritanical. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781441134851 Publish October 2010, 256 pages Quantity Continuum History
Almost as soon as it was built, London suffered the first of many acts of violent protest, when Boudica and her followers set fire to the city in AD 60. Ever since, the capital’s streets have been a forum for popular insurrection. Covering nearly 2000 years of political protest, this is a riveting alternative history of past and present conflict. It’s the story of an alternative London in direct confrontation with the forces of its state, its police, military and secret service. The story of political activism expressed in street fighting and slum warfare, in assassination and bombing, peopled by the radical and the moderate.

Few places are as fascinating as Cuba, which has drawn travelers ever since it was “discovered” by Columbus in 1492. Magnificently evoking the romance and drama as well as darker episodes of slavery and tyranny, this selection of journal entries, essays and guidebook commentaries begins in the days when Havana sheltered Caribbean pirate treasure ships and was the gateway to the Spanish empire in the New World. Later chapters reflect the “American era” when the island was transformed into a glittering tourist and gambler’s paradise operated by the Mafia. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9780980429213 Publish October 2010, 195 pages Ocean Press Quantity History

Music has the power to move us. It’s a language which we all speak. But why does it have this effect on us? What is going on, emotionally, physically and cognitively when listeners have strong emotional responses to music? What, if anything, do such responses mean? Can they tell us anything about ourselves? Jeanette Bicknell uses research in philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, and anthropology to address these questions, ultimately showing us that the reason why some music tends to arouse powerful experiences in listeners is inseparable from the reason why any music matters at all. $22.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230209909 Publish October 2010, 184 pages Quantity Palgrave Macmillan The Arts

Jean Baudrillard (1929 - 2007) began teaching sociology at the Universite de Paris-X in 1966. He retired from academia in 1987 to write books and travel until his death in 2007.
In America, France’s leading philosopher of postmodernism took to the freeways to produce a collection of traveler’s tales from the land of hyperreality. From the sierras of New Mexico to the streets of New York and LA by night, Baudrillard mixes aperçus and observations with a wicked sense of fun to provide a unique insight into the country that dominates the world.

It shows how the old idea that the great majority were simpleminded enthusiasts for foreign incursions has been discredited by pollsters, and conlcudes with an analysis of Britain’s current involvement in Afghanistan and Iraq, suggesting ways in which the governmental system could be modified to reflect public opinion and avoid foreign incursions. $53.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230237933 Publish October 2010, 240 pages Quantity Palgrave Macmillan History & Philosophy

Mobility, Materiality and Identity
Xiaoyuan Liu, Iowa State University, US.
A. Bernard Knapp and Peter van Dommelen, both University of Glasgow, UK.
In applying the two interpretative themes of “frontier” and “ethnicity”, the book examines the externalization from and internalization to China by a number of the tributary affiliates and outlying territories of the by-gone Qing Empire (e.g., Korea, Vietnam, “Outer” and Inner Mongolia, Tibet, and Xinjiang). The historical developments dissected here are certain overlooked aspects of the otherwise well-scrutinized international history of 20th-century East Asia. $56.00 Pb, ISBN 9781441134899 Publish October 2010, 288 pages Continuum History & Philosophy Quantity
Material Connections eschews outdated theory, tainted by colonialist attitudes, and develops a new cultural and historical understanding of how factors such as mobility, materiality, conflict and co-presence impacted on the formation of identity in the ancient Mediterranean.

As the Vikings began to migrate overseas as raiders or settlers in the late eighth century, there is evidence that this new way of life, centred on warfare, commerce and exploration, brought with it a warrior ethos that gradually became codified in the Viking myths, notably in the cult of Odin, the god of war, magic and poetry, and chief god in the Norse pantheon. Using archaeological sources to take us further back in time than any written document, the accounts of foreign writers like the Roman historian Tacitus, and the most important repository of stories of the gods, old Norse poetry and the Edda, Christopher Abram leads the reader into the lost world of the Norse gods. $56.00 Hb, ISBN 9781847252470 Publish October 2010, 264 pages Quantity Continuum History & Philosophy
Current Affairs & Politics The Aid Triangle
The Cuban Revolution in the 21st Centure
Recognising the Human Dynamics of Dominance, Justice and Identity
George Lambie, De Montfort University, Leicester. While most books and articles on Cuba seek to analyse the island’s socialist experiment from the perspective of internal dynamics or international relations, this book attempts to understand the revolutionary process as part of a counter-current against neoliberal globalisation. Rather than presenting Cuba as a socialist survivor, whose performance must be measured against the standards set by the ‘international community’, George Lambie judges Cuban socialism on the goals which the revolution sets for itself. $53.00 Pb, ISBN 9780745330105 Publish October 2010, 336 pages Pluto Current Affairs & Politics Quantity

The Aid Triangle focuses on the human dynamics of international aid; from impoverished farmers to aid workers; donor diplomats to multilateral bureaucrats; celebrities to activists, and to the unconcerned and uninvolved. This timely work illustrates how the aid system incorporates power relationships, and therefore relationships of dominance.

Global Norms, American Sponsorship and the Emerging Patterns of World Politics
Ted Rall is a political cartoonist, opinion columnist, graphic novelist and occasional war correspondent. In arguably the most radical book published in decades, cartoonist/columnist Ted Rall has produced the book he was always meant to write: a new manifesto for an America heading toward economic and political collapse. As in Russia in 1991, criminals and right-wing extremists are best prepared to fill the power vacuum from a collapsing United States. The best way to stop them, Rall argues, is not collapse - but revolution. Not by other people, but by us. Not in the future, but now.

Reich casts aside the conventional formulations that emphasize the alternative importance of material (hard) or social (soft) power, of different kinds of actors, or of theory and practice. Instead, he offers a novel and comprehensive formulation that illustrates the alternative ways in which soft and hard power are systematically connected, how NGOs and states relate in a globalizing world, how emergent transnational challenges have rendered old policy options obsolete, and the implications for American choices in the 21st Century. $56.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230241169 Publish October 2010, 224 pages Quantity Palgrave Macmillan Current Affairs & Politics

Imagining Arab Womanhood examines orientalist images of Arab womanhood in the United States since the turn of the twentieth century, exploring, in particular, representations of belly dancers, harem girls, and veiled women. Through semiotic analysis, Jarmakani demonstrates that these images have functioned as nostalgic placeholders for pressing, yet unarticulated concerns about shifting spatial and temporal realities within the contexts of expansionism/modernization and imperialism/ late capitalism. $45.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230103306 Publish October 2010, 256 pages Palgrave Macmillan Current Affairs & Politics

Parliament is reeling from the expenses scandal and an increasingly apathetic public can see no difference between Labour, Tory, and the Liberal Democrats. In British Politics: A Beginner’s Guide, Richard Grayson asks if the blame for this lies at Westminster, or if we actually get the politicians we deserve.

Muslim Women of Power
A Seventh Man
Clinton Bennett, State University of New York.
John Berger is a prolific and award-winning author; Jean Mohr’s longstanding collaboration with John Berger has produced five books.
Five women have served as leaders of Muslim countries, namely Megawati Sukarnoputri (Vice President of Indonesia, 1991-2001 and President 2002-4), Benazir Bhutto (PM of Pakistan, 1988-90 and 1993-6), Sheikh Hasina (PM of Bangladesh, 1996-2001), Khaleda Zia (PM of Bangladesh, 1991-5 and 2001 to 2006) and Tansu Çiller (PM of Turkey, 1993-6). This is an extraordinary record and somewhat of a challenge to the widespread perception that Muslim women are oppressed. This study of the role of these five powerful Muslim women uses their life and work to explore relevant issues, such as the role of culture, gender in Islam and the nature of the Islamic state. $64.00 Pb, ISBN 9780826400871 Publish October 2010, 224 pages Quantity Continuum Current Affairs & Politics

Why does the Western world look to migrant laborers to perform the most menial tasks? What compels people to leave their homes and accept this humiliating situation? In A Seventh Man, John Berger and Jean Mohr come to grip with what it is to be a migrant worker - the material circumstances and the inner experience - and, in doing so, reveal how the migrant is not so much on the margins of modern life, but absolutely central to it. First published in 1975, this finely wrought exploration remains as urgent as ever, presenting a mode of living that pervades the countries of the West and yet is excluded from much of its culture. $28.00 Pb, ISBN 9781844676491 Quantity Publish October 2010, 256 pages Verso Current Affairs & Politics

Ordinary people don’t experience history as it is taught by historians. They live across the convenient chronological divides we impose on the past. The same people who lived through the Civil War and the eradication of slavery also dealt with the hardships of Reconstruction, so why doe we almost always treat them seperately?

The Lives of Haydn, Mozart and Metastasio Stendhal’s first published work - owes its inspiration to the audacious pragmatism of its author. His most abiding passion in life was music, so why not write about it? Unfortunately, however, he knew next to nothing about it. So, calmly and without the slightest pang of conscience, he resolved to plunder the works of other writers - in particular those of the musicologist Giuseppe Carpani, who was annoyed and said so vociferously. The result of Stendhal’s unscrupulous plagiarim is one of the most fascinating literary enigmas of all time. How is it that what started as a blatant act of piracy evolved into a work of enduring genius? $49.95 Pb, ISBN 9780714543390 Publish October 2010, 408 pages Oneworld Classics Quantity

The Geneva Conventions Under Assault

Sarah Perrigo and Jim Whitman Outrages committed during violent conflict and as part of the ‘war on terror’ are not only an affront to human dignity -- they also violate the Geneva Conventions.

The Complete Guide to Climate Change
Dave Reay is a Research Fellow at Edinburgh University. Climate change is one of the greatest threats that humankind faces in the twenty-first century. The next hundred years could see coastlines and islands submerged, and a surge in heat waves, hurricanes, droughts, floods and therefore in pests, disease, famine and displacement. This book argues that while government and industry dither, we could all cut our personal greenhouse gas emissions by 60% - the level necessary to halt the current trend according to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230007543 2006, 224 pages Palgrave Macmillan Quantity 9 780230 007543

David Howell and Carole Nakhle Is the mounting debate about climate change ignoring much more immediate dangers to world energy security? According to David Howell and Carole Nakhle there is a greener, cleaner and safer energy future ahead. In the struggle against global warming the acute and immediate threats to secure energy supplies tend to be pushed aside.

The prize is awarded to a distinguished work of fiction, non-fiction or poetry, evoking the spirit of a place.

His misfortune: to live in a world where corruption is rife and honest and law-abiding people are crushed by the wheels of a blind, unscrupulous bureaucracy.

Barry Gifford is the author of more than forty published works of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.
Paul Muldoon is the author of ten books of poetry, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning Moy Sand and Gravel. In his eleventh full-length book, Muldoon reminds us that he is a traditional poet who is steadfastly at odds with tradition. If the poetic sequence is the main mode of Maggot, it certainly isn’t your father’s poetic sequence. Taking as a starting point W. B. Yeats’s remark that the only fit topics for a serious mood are “sex and the dead,” Muldoon finds unexpected ways of thinking and feeling about what it means to come to terms with the early twenty-first century. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9780374200329 Publish October 2010, 144 pages Farrar Straus and Giroux Quantity Fiction

Roy is a lover of adventure movies, a budding writer, and a young man slowly coming of age without the benefit of a father. Surrounding him whether to support him or to drag him under - is the adult world of postwar Chicago, a city haunted by violence, poverty, and the redeeming power of imagination. At the center of it all is a boy learning to navigate the compromises, disillusionments and regrets that come with the territory of living. Mixing memoir and invention, the forty-one short stories in Barry Gifford’s first book for young adults bring a city-and a boy’s growing consciousness-to vivid, unflinching life. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9781583229224 Publish October 2010, 208 pages Quantity Seven Stories Press Fiction

This book describes the emergence of ecological understanding among the English Romantic poets, arguing that this new holistic paradigm offered a conceptual and ideological basis for American environmentalism. Coleridge, Wordsworth, Blake, John Clare, and Mary Shelley all contributed to the fundamental ideas and core values of the modern environmental movement; their vital influence was openly acknowledged by Emerson, Thoreau, John Muir, and Mary Austin. By revealing hitherto unsuspected links between English and American nature writers, this book elucidates the Romantic origins of American environmentalism. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9780230105614 Publish October 2010, 272 pages Quantity Palgrave Macmillan Literature

The extraordinary stories in this book demonstrate how neuroplasticity - the remarkable science behind the brain’s capacity to alter its very structure - has revolutionised the face of neuroscience. With the brain able to adapt and heal, potential applications and benefits in the field of psychotherapy were legion. The only remaining question was how to use it. After years of stuffy and clinical practice, mental health pioneer Dr Dan Siegel shows how his concept of mindsight harnesses neuroplasticity and shows how we can use it in our own lives to help us master our emotions, heal our relationships, and reach our fullest potential. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851687619 Quantity Publish October 2010, 336 pages Oneworld Health & Lifestyle

In two earlier books, Hubbert’s Peak (2001) and Beyond Oil (2005), the geologist Kenneth S. Deffeyes laid out his rationale for concluding that world oil production would continue to follow a bell-shaped curve, with the smoothed-out peak somewhere in the middle of the first decade of this millennium. In When Oil Peaked, he revisits his original forecasts, examines the arguments that were made both for and against them, adds some new supporting material to his overall case, and applies the same mode of analysis to a number of other finite gifts from the Earth: mineral resources that may be also in shorter supply than “flat-Earth” prognosticators would have us believe. $34.95 Pb, ISBN 9780809094714 Publish October 2010, 176 pages Quantity Farrar Straus and Giroux Science & Environment
