Seeds of Terror
A Twentieth-Century History
How Heroin is Bankrolling the Taliban and al Qaeda
Marilyn B. Young is a professor of history at New York University. She has been a Guggenheim Fellow and is the author of numerous books and co-editor of Iraq and the Lessons of Vietnam; Yuki Tanaka is Research Professor at Hiroshima Peace Institute of Hiroshima City University. Since the mid-1980s he has been concentrating his research on war crimes and is the author of several books.
Gretchen Peters has covered Pakistan and Afghanistan for more than a decade, first for the Associated Press and later for ABC News in the US. A Harvard graduate, Peters was nominated for an Emmy for her coverage of the 2007 assassination of Benazir Bhutto and won the SAJA Journalism Award for a Nightline segment on Pervez Musharraf. She lives in the US.
With contributions from scholars from Japan, the United States, and Europe, Bombing Civilians examines a crucial question: why did military planning in the early twentieth century shift its focus from bombing military targets to bombing civilians? From the British bombing of Iraq in the early 1920s to the most recent conflicts in Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, and Lebanon, Bombing Civilians analyzes in detail the history of indiscriminate bombing, examining the fundamental questions of how this theory justifying mass killing originated and why it was employed as a compelling military strategy for decades, both before and since the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The book includes major new arguments, such as Japanese historian Tsuyoshi Hasegawa’s bold claim that it was the Soviet invasion rather than the atomic bombs that compelled the Japanese to surrender in the Pacific War. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781595585479 Publish September 2010, 304 pages The New Press Quantity 9 781595 585479 History
Seeds of Terror will reshape the way you think about the West’s enemies, revealing them less as ideologues and more as criminals who earn half a billion pounds every year off the opium trade. With the breakneck pace of a thriller, author Gretchen Peters traces their illicit activities from vast poppy fields in southern Afghanistan to heroin labs run by Taliban commanders, from drug convoys armed with Stinger missiles to the money launderers of Karachi and Dubai. Based on hundreds of interviews with Taliban fighters, smugglers, and law enforcement and intelligence agents, Peters makes the case that we must cut terrorists off from their drug earnings if we ever hope to beat them. $24.95 Pb, ISBN 9781851687510 Publish September 2010, 320 pages Oneworld Current Affairs & Politics
The Obama Syndrome
Travelling to Infinity
Surrender at Home, War Abroad
My Life with Stephen
Tariq Ali is a writer and filmmaker. He has written more than a dozen books on world history and politics, as well as scripts for the stage and screen. He is an editor of New Left Review and lives in London.
Dr Jane Hawking, who was Stephen Hawking’s wife for over twenty years, is a writer and lecturer. Her book At Home in France was published in 1994, followed by Music to Move the Stars in 1999. She lives and works in Cambridge.
What has really changed since Bush left the White House? Very little, argues Tariq Ali, apart from the mood music. The hopes aroused during Obama’s election campaign have rapidly receded—the honeymoon has been short. Following the financial crisis, the “reform” president bailed out Wall Street without getting anything in return. With Democratic Party leaders and representatives mired in the corrupt lobbying system, the plans for reforming the healthcare system lie wrecked on the Senate floor. Abroad, the “war on terror” continues: torture on a daily basis in the horror chamber that is Bagram, Iraq occupied indefinitely, Israel permanently appeased, and more troops to Afghanistan and more drone attacks in Pakistan than under Bush. The fact that Obama has proved incapable of shifting the political terrain even a few inches in a reformist direction will pave the way for a Republican surge and triumph in the not too distant future. $29.95 Hb, ISBN 9781844674497 Publish September 2010, 128 pages Verso Current Affairs & Politics Quantity 9 781844 674497
In this compelling memoir, Professor Stephen Hawking's first wife Jane relates the inside story of their extraordinary marriage. As Stephen’s academic renown soared, his body was collapsing under the assaults of motorneuron disease, and Jane’s candid account of trying to balance his twenty-four-hour care with the needs of their growing family will be inspirational to anyone dealing with family illness. The inner strength of the author, and the self-evident character and achievements of her husband, make for an incredible tale that is always presented with unflinching honesty; the author’s candour is no less evident when the marriage finally ends in a high-profile meltdown, with Stephen leaving Jane for one of his nurses, while Jane goes on to marry an old family friend. In this exceptionally open, moving and often funny memoir, Jane Hawking confronts not only the acutely complicated and painful dilemmas of her first marriage, but also the faultlines exposed in a relationship by the pervasive effects of fame and wealth. $22.00 Pb, ISBN 9781846881152 Publish September 2010, 496 pages Alma Books Quantity Memoir 9 781846 881152

As China Goes, So Goes The World
Do Llamas Fall in Love?
Karl Gerth, Oxford University.
33 Perplexing Philosophy Puzzles
In this revelatory examination of the most overlooked force that is changing the face of China, the Oxford historian and scholar of modern Asia Karl Gerth shows that as the Chinese consumer goes, so goes the world. While Americans and Europeans have become increasingly worried about China’s competition for manufacturing jobs and energy resources, they have overlooked an even bigger story: China’s rapid development of an American-style consumer culture, which is revolutionizing the lives of hundreds of millions of Chinese and has the potential to reshape the world. As China Goes, So Goes the World reveals why we should all care about the everyday choices made by ordinary Chinese. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9780809034291 Quantity Publish September 2010, 272 pages Farrar Straus and Giroux Current Affairs

World-wide, over a billion adults are overweight and 300 million are officially “obese”, more than 3,000 people die every day on the world’s roads and global warming and war threaten our survival as a species. The Energy Glut tells the story of energy and how our abuse of fossil fuel energy links all of these public issues as manifestations of the same fundamental planetary malaise. This exciting new book argues that the pulse of fossil fuel energy released from the ground after the discovery of oil not only started the process of catastrophic climate change, but also propelled the average human weight distribution upwards. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848135185 Publish September 2010, 208 pages Quantity Zed Books Current Affairs
Jere Van Dyk has covered stories all over the world, mainly for The New York Times, CBS News, and National Geographic.
A Mother’s Photographs, a Prosecutor’s Zeal, and a Small Town’s Response
Jere Van Dyk was on the wrong side of the border. He and three Afghan guides had crossed into the tribal areas of Pakistan, where no Westerner had ventured for years, hoping to reach the home of a local chieftain by nightfall. But then a dozen armed men in black turbans appeared over the crest of a hill. Captive is Van Dyk’s searing account of his forty-five days in a Taliban prison, and it is gripping and terrifying in the tradition of the best prison literature. Van Dyk went to the tribal areas to investigate the challenges facing America there. His story is of a deeper, more personal challenge, an unforgettable tale of human endurance. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9780805088274 Quantity Publish September 2010, 288 pages Henry Holt and Company Memoir

Ten years ago, amateur photographer Cynthia Stewart dropped off eleven rolls of film at a drugstore near her home in Ohio. The rolls contained photographs of her eight-year-old daughter, including two of the child in the shower - photos that would cause the county prosecutor to arrest Cynthia, threaten to remove her daughter from her home, and charge her with crime that carried the possibility of sixteen years in prison. This riveting and beautifully told story plumbs the perfect storm of events and people that threatened an ordinary family in a small American town. $39.95 Hb, ISBN 9781595585516 Quantity Publish September 2010, 288 pages The New Press Current Affairs
Dismantling the Empire
I Drink Therefore I am
America’s Last Best Hope
A Philosopher’s Guide to Wine
Chalmers Johnson, University of California.
Professor Roger Scruton, American Enterprise Institute, Washington.
Dismantling the Empire explores the subjects for which Johnson is now famous, from the origins of blowback to Barack Obama’s Afghanistan conundrum, including America’s inept spies, its bad behaviour in other countries, its ill-fought wars, and its capitulation to a military that has taken ever more control of the federal budget. There is, he proposes, only one way out: President Obama must begin to dismantle the empire before the Pentagon dismantles the American Dream. If it does not learn from the fates of past empires, he suggests, America’s decline and fall are foreordained. $35.00 Pb, ISBN 9780805093032 Publish September 2010, 224 pages Henry Holt and Company Quantity Current Affairs & Politics

Whether or not good for the body, Scrtuton argues, wine, drunk in the right frame of mind, is definitely good for the soul. And there is no better accompaniment to wine than philosophy. By thinking with wine, you can learn not only to drink in thoughts but to think in draughts. This good-humoured book offers an antidote to the pretentious clap-trap that is written about wine today and a profound apology for the drink on which civilisation has been founded.

The Real Global Warming Disaster

Is the Obsession with ‘Climate Change’ Turning Out to Be the Most Costly Scientific Blunder in History?
Caroline Petit, University of Manchester.
9 781845 118471
The extent to which classical theories about, and practices of, medical knowledge have shaped and continue to define medicine today is remarkable: but not always widely appreciated. Caroline Petit here offers a concise yet comprehensive account of medicine in antiquity which explores precisely that fascinating legacy. Discussing topics such as medical ethics, diagnostic explorations of illness and disease, matters of sex and gender, the ancient division between body and soul and methods of medical teaching and dissemination, the author draws fascinating parallels between the ancient, early modern and modern periods. $25.95 Pb, ISBN 9781845118471 Publish September 2010, 160 pages Quantity I.B.Tauris Publishers History

Space exploration is in some ways an exploration of what it means to be human. How much can a person give up? How much weirdness can they take? 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. From the space shuttle training toilet to a crash test of NASA’s new space capsule, Roach takes us on a surreally entertaining trip into the science of life in space and space on Earth. $32.00 Hb, ISBN 9781851687800 Quantity Publish September 2010, 256 pages Oneworld Popular Science

Soldiers’ Inside View of War
How the War on Terror and Jihad Have Changed the English Language Fred Halliday is Professor of International Relations at the LSE.
Snapshots taken by American soldiers of Iraqi prisoners stripped naked, humiliated and tortured, shocked the world in 2004. But, as Private Pictures relates, soldiers have taken photographs of the gruesome or sociable, shocking or mundane aspects of war for more than 100 years. It follows this unacknowledged genre of photography from the origins of popular photography at the time of the Boer War to the digital age. Private Pictures also asks what effect the wider appreciation of soldiers’ pictures might have on the popular perception of war, and on war photography itself. $35.00 Pb, ISBN 9781848854437 Quantity Publish September 2010, 256 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers Current Affairs

Far more than just a military conflict, the ‘War on Terror’ has been a struggle over values and meanings, a desperate contest for hearts and minds in which language has become the battlefield. Fred Halliday takes us on a tour of this new war-zone, its artillery and trenches, minefields and boobytraps. Scanning the semantic landscape of the post 9/11 world, he uncovers hidden twists of phrasing and word associations, which in themselves tell a story about the violent clash of ideologies that has marked the opening of the 21st century. $29.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848850316 Publish September 2010, 320 pages Quantity I.B.Tauris Publishers Current Affairs

British Victory in Egypt
The End of Napoleon’s Conquest
Royal Murder and Regnal Legitimacy
Piers Mackesy, Pembroke College, Oxford.
Ian Mortimer, University of Exeter.
In 1800 the British army’s reputation was in tatters, having experienced nothing but failure in wars across the world for forty years; at home, a divided cabinet had to face the problem of Egypt, which had been occupied by Napoleon’s Army of the Orient since 1798. The task of ejecting France fell to a disparate band of soldiers led by Sir Ralph Abercromby which, against all the odds, defeated the French army, bringing Napoleon’s Egyptian Campagin to a definitive and crushing end. Piers Mackesy vividly brings to life the events of the battle, revealing how Abercromby’s brilliantlyexecuted strategy restored the honour of the British army and averted disaster for the Empire. $34.00 Pb, ISBN 9781848854727 Quantity Publish September 2010, 304 pages I.B.Tauris Publishers History & Philosophy

He explains how an information-based method allows a more certain reading of a series of texts. He criticises existing modes of arriving at consensus and outlines a process of historical analysis that ultimately leads to questioning historical doubts as well as historical facts, with profound implications for what we can say about the past with certainty. $56.00 Hb, ISBN 9781847065896 Quantity Publish September 2010, 352 pages Continuum History & Philosophy

Thistlethwaite offers a new perspective for how Americans can understand themselves as a nation and their roles in their community and the world.

To achieve this, they must seize Palestine; induce Western Jews to become colonists; and, above all, recruit Western powers to sponsor their colonial project. Zionists can only succeed by creating Islamicate enemies; they need resurgent antiSemitism to send Jewish colons to Palestine; and they must persuade/coerce the West to sponsor their colonial project. In Europe, Jewish-Gentile frictions were local problems; in Israel, ominously, they have come to form the pivot of global conflict. $45.00 Pb, ISBN 9780230619982 Quantity Publish September 2010, 272 pages Palgrave Macmillan Current Affairs & Politics

A Nuclear Waste
Liberation, Conflict and Crisis
Gavin Harper, Open University.
Barry Rubin, director of the GLORIA Centre, and editor of MERIA Journal.
Discounted for a couple of decades as a viable solution, nuclear power is undergoing a resurgence of interest amongst politicians across the developed and developing world. A Nuclear Waste critically examines whether nuclear power is really an option for future energy provision in the context of peak oil and climate change. Focusing on the track record of the nuclear power industry, the economics of nuclear power and scientific developments in the field, Harper takes timeless anti-nuclear arguments and augments them with current facts, figures and developments in the nuclear industry, to provide an up-to-date critique of why nuclear energy is not the answer to the energy crises and climate change. $39.95 Pb, ISBN 9781848133082 Quantity Publish September 2010, 144 pages Zed Books Current Affairs & Politics

Strolling through Istanbul
Mornings in Mexico
A Girl in Paris
D.H. Lawrence (1885-1930), novelist, poet, playwright, painter, critic, is an icon of 20th century literature. Much of D.H. Lawrence’s life was defined by his passion for travel and it was those peripatetic wanderings that gave life to some of his greatest novels. In the 1920s, Lawrence travelled several times to Mexico, where he was fascinated by the clash of beauty and brutality, purity and darkness that he observed there. The spirited eloquence and beauty of the essays in “Mornings in Mexico” thus illuminate the inspiration behind of one of Lawrence’s most loved works and immerse the reader in a portrait of the country like no other. $28.00 Pb, ISBN 9781845118686 October 2009, 96 pages Quantity Tauris Parke 9 781845 118686

The Lost Girl
Gustave Flaubert is best known for his works Madame Bovary and Sentimental Education, and for his stylistic perfectionism and scrupulous commitment to “le mot juste”.
D. H. Lawrence’s novels represent a milestone in twentieth-century literature.
A spoof encyclopedia of contemporary accepted wisdom and commonplaces, The Dictionary of Received Ideas sees Flaubert at his witty and satirical best. Perhaps intended as a companion to his final, unfinished novel Bouvard and Pécuchet, this compilation was the result of a lifetime of collecting the absurd and the clichéd with darkly humorous explanations. A playful look at nineteenth-century values and talking points, this dictionary will provide enduring entertainment and prove relevant even today. $25.00 Hb, ISBN 9781847491657 Publish September 2010, 128 pages Quantity Oneworld Classics Fiction

After plans to elope with her lover to Australia and train as a nurse in London lead to nothing, she joins a travelling theatre group and succumbs to the charms of the dark, passionate Italian Ciccio. Although not enjoying today the same level of fame as Sons and Lovers or Lady Chatterley’s Lover, The Lost Girl was greatly successful in its time, winning the prestigious 1920 James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and remains a classic Lawrence novel of sensual awakening and the yearning for freedom. $25.00 Pb, ISBN 9781847491626 Quantity Publish September 2010, 450 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction
The Sorrows of Young Werther
Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837) is now considered the father of modern Russian literature.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) was a German polymath, whose works spanned the fields of literature, theology and science.
When the Romantic and world-weary dandy Eugene Onegin moves from St Petersburg to take up residence in the country estate he has inherited, he strikes up an unlikely friendship with his mildmannered neighbour, the poet Vladimir Lensky. Coldly rejecting the amorous advances of Tatyana and cynically courting her sister Olga - Lensky’s fiancée - Onegin finds himself dragged into a tragedy of his own doing. Eugene Onegin was the founding text of modern Russian literature, marking a clean break from the high-flown classical style of its predecessors and introducing the quintessentially Russian hero and heroine. $22.00 Pb, ISBN 9781847491602 Publish September 2010, 288 pages Quantity Oneworld Classics Fiction

Presented as a collection of confessional letters written by the eponymous protagonist, The Sorrows of Young Werther charts the emotional journey of a young man who, during a stay in a picturesque German village, falls in love with Lotte, a local woman engaged to another man. As he realizes that his passion is doomed to failure and constant pain, Werther contemplates taking the most drastic measures. Partly autobiographical, and the prototype for many later Romantic works in its depiction of the sensitive, tortured Romantic hero, Goethe’s seminal classic is a timeless masterpiece of world literature. $19.95 Hb, ISBN 9781847491572 Quantity Publish September 2010, 512 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction
A Struggle for Life
Poet, novelist and journal writer, Jules Renard (1864-1910) is a major figure of late-nineteenthcentury French literature, influencing other writers to this day, including Somerset Maugham and Julian Barnes.
Llewelyn Powys (1884-1939) produced a prolific and eclectic body of work, including essays, a biography, a novel, travel accounts, popular philosophy works and memoirs.
A delightful variation on the long tradition of bestiary writing, Jules Renard’s short verse and prose poems have captured the imagination of readers and artists since they were originally written in 1894, with Ravel famously setting five of them to music. Presented in a new version by acclaimed translator Richard Stokes and enriched by Lucinda Rogers’s beautiful ink drawings, this sumptuously produced volume will captivate and enchant new generations of readers the world over. $25.00 Hb, ISBN 9781847491701 Publish September 2010, 144 pages Quantity Oneworld Classics Fiction

A new selection of Llewelyn Powys’s essays, A Struggle for Life attempts to illustrate both the evolution of the author’s thought and writing and the incredible breadth and variety of his interests. At once personal and universal, the twenty-eight pieces contained in this volume - one of them published for the first time and many of them returning to print for the first time in sixty years - tackle themes such as happiness, nature and celebrate rationalism as an alternative to dogma and religion. Powys’s essays combine poignancy and sincerity with irony and subversiveness. $25.00 Pb, ISBN 9781847491695 Quantity Publish September 2010, 224 pages Oneworld Classics Fiction
The Life of Our Lord
The Water Theatre
Charles Dickens now ranks as the most important Victorian writer and one of the most influential and popular authors in the English language.
Lindsay Clarke is the author of seven novels, including The Chymical Wedding, which won the Whitbread Award for Fiction in 1989.
Never published in its author’s lifetime and intended solely for his own children, to whom he read it every Christmas, The Life of Our Lord is an accessible and gently humorous take on the life of Jesus Christ and his teachings. Far removed from the sharp satire and social dimension of his more famous writings, but showcasing his characteristic humanity and genius for storytelling, this is both an essential work for those wanting to see a different, more intimate side to Dickens and a timeless retelling for children and adults alike. $25.00 Hb, ISBN 9781847491664 Publish September 2010, 128 pages Oneworld Classics Quantity Fiction

Kristeva Reframed examines the key ideas in Kristeva’s work to show how they are most relevant to artists and art students, and how they can be applied in interpreting artworks, with examples from painting, photography and film.

In Muslim countries like Tunisia, Egypt, Pakistan and Malaysia, a mere 15% of those recently surveyed believed Darwin’s theory to be ‘true’ or ‘probably true’.
