Bodies That Matter

Ethics and Public Policy

On the Discursive Limits of Sex

A Philosophical Inquiry

Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley, USA

Jonathan Wolff, University College London, UK

Series: Routledge Classics In Bodies That Matter, renowned theorist and philosopher Judith Butler argues that theories of gender need to return to the most ‘material’ dimension of sex and sexuality: the body. Butler offers a brilliant reworking of the body, examining how the power of heterosexual hegemony forms the ‘matter’ of bodies, sex, and gender. Butler argues that power operates to constrain ‘sex’ from the start, delimiting what counts as a viable sex. She offers a clarification of the notion of ‘performativity’ introduced in Gender Trouble and explores the meaning of a citational politics. The text includes readings of Plato, Irigaray, Lacan, and Freud on the formation of materiality and bodily boundaries; ‘Paris is Burning,’ Nella Larsen’s ‘Passing,’ and short stories by Willa Cather; along with a reconsideration of ‘performativity’ and politics in feminist, queer, and radical democratic theory.

Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy Bernard Williams Series: Routledge Classics Bernard Williams was one of the greatest philosophers of his generation. Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy is not only widely acknowledged to be his most important book, but also hailed a contemporary classic of moral philosophy. Drawing on the ideas of the Greek philosophers, Williams reorients ethics away from a preoccupation with universal moral theories towards ‘truth, truthfulness and the meaning of an individual life’. He explores and reflects upon the most difficult problems in contemporary philosophy and identifies new ideas about central issues such as relativism, objectivity and the possibility of ethical knowledge. This edition also includes a new commentary on the text by A.W. Moore. Routledge «Market: Philosophy April 2011: 198x129: 264pp Pb: 978-0-415-61014-8: £14.99 eBook: 978-0-203-82828-1: £25.99

Mind, Reason and Being-in-the-World The McDowell-Dreyfus Debate

The Existence of God A Philosophical Introduction Yujin Nagasawa, University of Birmingham, UK Does God exist? What are the different arguments that seek to prove the existence of God? Are they valid arguments? The Existence of God: A Philosophical Introduction assesses classical and contemporary arguments concerning the existence of God, including:

Edited by Joseph K. Schear, University of Oxford, UK The work of John McDowell and Hubert Dreyfus has done much to shape the fields of analytic philosophy and phenomenology respectively. Mind, Reason and Being-inthe-World: The McDowell-Dreyfus Debate opens with their debate over one of the most controversial subjects in philosophy: is perceptual experience permeated with rationality and reflectiveness, or is perception fundamentally bodily; prior to rationality? They provide a fascinating insight into fundamental differences between analytic philosophy and phenomenology as well as areas where they may have something in common. 14 specially commissioned chapters by distinguished international contributors enrich the debate. Among the philosophical problems discussed are: the embodied mind, subjectivity and self-consciousness, intentionality, and human agency. Mind, Reason and Being-in-the-World is essential reading for students and scholars of analytic philosophy and phenomenology. Routledge «Market: Philosophy April 2011: 234x156: 272pp Hb: 978-0-415-48586-9: £65.00 Pb: 978-0-415-48587-6: £19.99

Jean-Paul Sartre First published in 1936, The Imagination is Jean-Paul Sartre’s first full philosophical work, presenting some of the basic arguments concerning phenomenology, consciousness and intentionality that appeared in his master works and became so influential in the course of Twentieth century philosophy. Long out of print, this is the first English translation in many years. Sartre begins by criticising the theories of the imagination of Descartes, Leibniz and Hume, before establishing his central arguments about the imagination. He then reviews psychological approaches, including a fascinating discussion of the work of Henri Bergson. Sartre concludes with a chapter on Husserl’s theory of the imagination which, despite its sharing the flaws of earlier approaches, signals a new phenomenological way forward in understanding the imagination. The Imagination is essential reading for anyone interested in Sartre’s philosophy, phenomenology, and the history of Twentieth century philosophy.


• the cosmological argument, and philosophers’ discussions about the ultimate cause • the teleological argument, the concept of irreducible complexity, and the current controversy over intelligent design • arguments about the existence of God in relation to recent research on miracles, neuroscience and the controversy over the possibility of a ‘God spot’ in the brain. The Existence of God is an ideal introduction to philosophy of religion and an excellent starting point for anyone interested in arguments about the existence of God.

The Myths We Live By Mary Midgley, Newcastle Upon-Tyne University, UK Series: Routledge Classics Myths, as Mary Midgley argues in this powerful book, are everywhere. In political thought they sit at the heart of theories of human nature and the social contract; in economics in the pursuit of self interest; and in science the idea of human beings as machines, which originates in the seventeenth century, is a today a potent force. Far from being the opposite of science, however, Midgley argues that myth is a central part of it. Myths are neither lies nor mere stories but a network of powerful symbols for interpreting the world. Tackling a dazzling array of subjects such as philosophy, evolutionary psychology, animals, consciousness and the environment in her customary razor-sharp pros, The Myths We Live By reminds us of the powerful role of symbolism and the need to take our imaginative life seriously.

Beyond The Tractatus Wars


The New Wittgenstein Debate

William Child, University of Oxford, UK

Edited by Rupert Read, University of East Anglia, UK and Matthew A. Lavery, Adelphi University, USA

Series: The Routledge Philosophers

Over fifteen years have passed since Cora Diamond and James Conant turned Wittgenstein scholarship upside down with the program of ‘resolute’ reading, and ten years since this reading was crystallized in the major collection The New Wittgenstein. This approach remains at the center of the debate about Wittgenstein and his philosophy, and this book draws together the latest thinking of the world’s leading Tractatarian scholars and promising newcomers. Showcasing one piece alternately from each ‘camp’, Beyond the Tractatus Wars pairs newly commissioned pieces addressing differing views on how to understand early Wittgenstein, providing for the first time an arena in which the debate between ‘strong’ resolutists, ‘mild’ resolutists and ‘elucidatory’ readers of the book can really take place. The collection includes famous ‘samizdat’ essays by Warren Goldfarb and Roger White that are finally seeing the light of day. Routledge «Market: 20th Century Philosophy July 2011: 229x152: 224pp Hb: 978-0-415-87439-7: £75.00 Pb: 978-0-415-87440-3: £24.99

Ludwig Wittgenstein is considered by most philosophers – even those who do not share his views – to be the most influential philosopher of the 20th century. His contributions to the philosophy of language, mind, meaning and psychology – as well as to logic, mathematics and epistemology – permanently altered the philosophical landscape. In this superb introduction to Wittgenstein’s life and work, William Child discusses: Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, including his account of language and thought; Wittgenstein’s later philosophy; intentionality and rule-following; philosophy of mind and psychology; knowledge and certainty; philosophy of religion; and the legacy and influence of Wittgenstein���s ideas. Including a chronology, glossary, and helpful conclusions to each chapter, Wittgenstein is essential reading for anyone coming to Wittgenstein’s philosophy for the first time.

The Open Society and Its Enemies What is this Thing Karl Sir Popper Called Metaphysics? Preface by Vaclav Havel

Brian Garrett, The Australian National University, Australia

Series: Routledge Classics

This clear and accessible introduction covers the central topics in metaphysics in a concise but comprehensive way. Brian Garrett discusses the crucial concepts and addresses the key areas of metaphysics: God; Existence; Modality; Universals and Particulars; Facts; Paradoxes of Material Constitution; Causation; Time; Free Will; Personal Identity; and Truth.

First published in two volumes in 1945, The Open Society and Its Enemies is one of the most influential books of all time. Hailed by Bertrand Russell as a ‘vigorous and profound defence of democracy’, its legendary attack on the philosophies of Plato, Hegel and Marx exposed the dangers of centrally planned political systems, and became an inspiration to lovers of freedom living under communism in Eastern Europe. Available for the first time in a single paperback, this edition includes a preface by Vaclav Havel, and a recollection of the story behind the book’s publication by Karl Popper’s friend, E.H. Gombrich. Routledge «Market: Philosophy / Politics April 2011: 234x156: 896pp Pb: 978-0-415-61021-6: £16.99

’If in this book harsh words are spoken about some of the greatest among the intellectual leaders of mankind, my motive is not, I hope, to belittle them. It springs rather from my conviction that, if our civilization is to survive, we must break with the habit of deference to great men.’ – Karl Popper, from the Preface

philosophy Civil Society in Liberal Democracy Mark Jensen, Calvin College, USA Series: Routledge Studies in Contemporary Philosophy This book develops a model of civil society and situates that model in the debate over the relationship between civil society and democracy. Jensen argues that while we can draw up an ideal in which political institutions and civil society are mutually supportive, this ideal cannot be realized without luck.

Series: Doing... Series History as an academic discipline has dramatically changed over the last few decades and has become much more exciting and varied as a result of ideas from other disciplines, the influence of postmodernism and historians‘ incorporation of their own theoretical reflections into their work. The way history is studied at university level can vary greatly from history at school or as represented in the media and Doing History bridges that gap. This practical and accessible introduction to the discipline introduces students to these key discussions, familiarises them with the important terms and issues, equips them with the necessary vocabulary and encourages them to think about, and engage with, these questions. Clearly structured and accessibly written,it is an essential volume for all students embarking on the study of history.

The First World War appears as a fault line in Britain’s twentieth-century history. Between August 1914 and November 1918 the titanic struggle against Imperial Germany and her allies consumed more people, more money and more resources than any other conflict Britain had hitherto experienced. These momentous events were the source of profound and radical change in British society; and yet, at the same time, the conflict left long-standing institutions and social attitudes largely untouched. In chapters looking at industry and the economy, the government in operation during the war, women’s work, farming, popular culture and propaganda, Alan G.V. Simmonds focuses on the war as a civilian rather than a military experience, interpreting the military dimension as a background for examining the conflict as a political, social and cultural experience. This is an essential book for all students of the First World War. eBooks are only available to order online

Star Chamber Stories *

Judy Chicago, The Fresno Feminist Art Program, and the Collective Visions of Women Artists

G.R. Elton ’A combination of accurate and penetrating scholarship and imaginative and readable narrative’ – Time and Tide

Edited by Jill Fields Series: New Directions in American History The Feminist Art Program that was set up by Judy Chicago at CSU Fresno in 1970 was arguably the most important event giving rise to the Feminist Art Movement in the United States. Those first fifteen students left that program and went on to influence American art in cities across the country. Entering the Picture explores and critically appraises the first four decades of the feminist art movement, from its foundational moments in Fresno, to Los Angeles and New York, including subsequent feminist art institutions and collaborative projects created in these cities and beyond. The book includes a color insert which showcases the work of these artists, both past and present.

‘An almost faultless example of popularization that neither misleads the general reader nor disappoints the profession’ – Manchester Guardian These stories from the Star Chamber papers, first published in 1958, reveal the real, and sometimes comic, side of the functioning of the Star Chamber. They are valuable both for the ‘real life’ detail they bring to a historical concept, and for the light they throw on accepted historical generalizations. Selected Contents: 1. The Fool of Oxford 2.

Napoleon Georges Lefebvre Series: Routledge Classics Whether viewed as an inspired leader or obsessed tyrant, Napoleon has divided opinion for over 200 years. Georges Lefebvre’s classic work, published here in one paperback volume in English for the first time, is a definitive portrait of the Napoleonic era. More than a biography, this is a brilliant survey of the turbulent age Napoleon inaugurated in his attempt to redraw the map of Europe. Napoleon’s determination to emulate Caesar and Augustus condemned Europe to more than a decade of war and economic crisis, but he also built an empire, introducing educational, administrative and financial initiatives that are still in place today. Known as the ‘historian’s historian’, Georges Lefebvre was one of the pre-eminent French scholars of the 20th century. In his introduction to this edition, the award-winning historian Andrew Roberts explains his admiration for Lefebvre’s ability to ‘dig beneath the surface of Napoleonic myth-making’, and why this biography, first published in 1935, has never been surpassed.

Series: Studies in American Popular History and Culture

This book explores the complexities of the role human rights played in US-Soviet and Western Europe-Soviet relations through the prism of globalization. In addition to examining the behavior of the US government, this book offers an in-depth analysis of the Soviet government’s view of dissenters and non-official activities. It devotes considerable attention to how Soviet policymakers responded to the efforts of Western governments and to how private citizens used human rights as a way of undermining the international prestige of their regime.

Series: Routledge Studies in Cultural History Growing concerns about climate change and the increasing occurrence of ever more devastating natural disasters in some parts of the world and their consequences for human life, not only in the immediately affected regions, but for all of us, have increased our desire to learn more about disaster experiences in the past. Historical Disasters in Context illustrates how past societies coped with a threatening environment, how societies changed in response to disaster experiences, and how disaster experiences were processed and communicated, both locally and globally. International case studies demonstrate that while there are huge differences across cultures in the way people and societies responded to disasters, there are also many commonalities and interactions between different cultures that have the potential to alter the ways people prepare for and react to disasters in future.

Lotteries in Colonial America illustrates the ways in which this form of gambling played a pivotal role in the development of the colonies, subsidizing the construction of churches and schools, financing internal improvements, and providing land owners and merchants with an effective means of disposing of possessions. Lotteries served as a form of ‘voluntary taxation’ that proved invaluable both to communities and private individuals, and were usually approved by legislatures who opposed enacting taxes to pay for new endeavours. And, at least initially, the Crown and colonial governments granted colonists free reign to establish public and private lotteries.

Labour, Working Class and Heritage Edited by Laurajane Smith, University of York, UK, Paul Shackel and Gary Cambell Social inclusion and exclusion is an issue that museums are addressing in response to the focus of both international and national cultural policy on the way traditional audiences and communities are treated. Working class communities are one of the key groups identified among the socially ‘excluded’. Labour, Working Class and Heritage provides a way forward in these debates by addressing what labour and working class heritage is, and how it differs from dominant ways of understanding heritage and history? The book also explores how heritage is used in working class communities and by labour organizations, what meanings and significance this heritage may have, and how and why communities and their heritage have been excluded. It represents an innovative and useful resource for heritage and museum practitioners, students and academics concerned with understanding community heritage and the debate on social inclusion/exclusion.

Field Archaeology


An Introduction

Heritage and Identity in Europe Today

Peter Drewett, University of Sussex

Sharon Macdonald, University of Manchester, UK

Since its first publication, Field Archaeology: An Introduction has proved to be a key handbook for all those undertaking introductory courses in archaeology or volunteering on their first excavation. In this revised second edition, key developments in technology, theory and changes in the law are included, bringing it up to date with the most recent fieldwork practices. Peter Drewett’s comprehensive survey explores the process, from the core work of discovery and excavation to the final product, the published archaeological report. Illustrated with 100 photographs and line drawings, and using numerous case studies, this second edition of Field Archaeology ensures it will remain the essential introductory guide for archaeology students and the growing number of enthusiasts for the subject.

Memorylands investigates the nature of heritage, memory and understandings of the past in Europe today. It addresses the ongoing apparent ‘memory obsession’ evident in many museums, heritage sites and memorials, and the arguments about the changing nature of identities. It aims to provide a new perspective on the place of the past, especially as manifest in such heritage institutions, in different parts of Europe. This volume addresses how the past is understood in Europe today, how this informs contemporary identities, and what roles public and material culture play in this. Drawing on concepts and arguments in anthropology and ‘historical consciousness’, this volume argues for a deeper, more nuanced understanding of cultural assumptions involved in relating to the past. Using wide-ranging case studies, it seeks to theorise the ways in which ‘materialisations’ of identity in heritage institutions work; and to relate these to different forms of identification within Europe. for e-mail updates in your field

History and Culture from Archaic Times to the Death of Alexander

Why did Aeschylus characterize differently from Sophocles? Why did Sophocles introduce the third actor? Why did Euripides not make better plots? So asks H.D.F Kitto in this acclaimed study of Greek tragedy, first published in 1936 and now available for the first time in Routledge Classics, with a new foreword by Edith Hall. Kitto argues that in spite of dealing with big moral and intellectual questions, the Greek dramatist is above all an artist and the key to understanding classical Greek drama is to try and understand the tragic conception of each play. Through a fascinating analysis of Aeschylus’s ‘Oresteia’, the plays of Sophocles including ‘Antigone’ and ‘Oedipus Tyrannus’; and Euripides’s ‘Medea’ and ‘Hecuba’, Kitto skilfully conveys the artistic and literary brilliance of the Greek dramatists and explains why classical Greek tragedy has the power to grip the reader today as when the plays were first written and performed.

Early Christian Dress

Poisons in the Roman World

Virgil’s Homeric Lens

Gender, Virtue, and Authority

Cheryl L. Golden, Newman University, USA

Edan Dekel, Williams College, USA

Kristi Upson-Saia, Occidental College, USA

Keeping in mind the ambiguity, the complexity of the lore, the paranoia and the anecdotal, through original research Cheryl Golden uncovers evidence that the threat of murder and accidental death by poison created serious legal concerns for the Roman World. Poisons aided farmers, soldiers, doctors and homemakers, were a legal concern in the market place, in family law and for the Roman constitution. Examining evidence from the history of Rome’s transition from Republic to Empire, this study offers a fresh approach to the investigation of one of the most important transitional periods in western history.

Series: Routledge Monographs in Classical Studies

This study is the first full-length monograph on the subject of dress in early Christianity. It pays attention to the ways in which dress expressed and formed Christian identity, the role dress played in Christians’ rivalries with pagan neighbors, and especially to the ways in which notions of gender were culled and revised in the process. Although the construction of gender has consumed scholars of late antiquity in recent years, very few scholars have paid attention to the ways in which dress and physical appearance confirmed or contended with discursive constructions of femininity and masculinity. This study addresses that gap and helps us to better understand how gender was formulated by pagans in the early Imperial period and by Christians in late antiquity.

This book reevaluates the traditional view of the Aeneid ‘s relationship to Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey. By examining the ways in which Virgil bases his own epic project on the dynamic interaction between the two Homeric poems themselves, author Edan Dekel proposes a comprehensive system in which the Aeneid uses the Odyssey both as a conceptual model for writing an intertextual epic and as a powerful refracting lens for the specific interpretation of the Iliad and its consequences. By engaging current scholarship on intertextuality, this volume further contributes to the larger scholarly discourses on ancient reading habits, textual commentary, and Latin reception of Greek poetry.

After the Media

Changing Journalism

Culture and Identity in the 21st Century

Tamara Witschge, Angela Phillips and Peter Lee-Wright, both at Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK

Peter Bennett and Alex Kendall, both at University of Wolverhampton, UK and Julian McDougall This provocative text considers the state of media and cultural studies today after the demolition of the traditional media paradigm, and engages with the new, active consumer culture. Media Studies, particularly within schools, has until recently been concerned with mass media and the effects of ‘the media’ in society and on people. As new media technology has blurred the boundaries between the audience and the media, the status of this area of education is threatened. Whilst some have called for a drastic re-think (Media Studies 2.0), others have called for caution, arguing that the power dynamics of ownership and gatekeeping are left intact. This book uses cultural and technological change as a context for a more forensic exploration of the traditional dependence on the idea of ‘the media’ as one homogenous unit. It suggests that it would be liberating for students, teachers and academics to depart from such a model and shift the focus to people and how they create culture in this contemporary ‘mediascape’.

Many view coverage as simply a neutral practice of objectively reporting an event by the news media. However, since the 9/11 attacks, media and security have become increasingly intertwined. The media technologies of filtering, sorting, and keywording are now essential elements of national defense. In Coverage, Lisa Parks argues media coverage actively involves the power to shape not only how citizens think and act, but also how they imagine global space and power relations in the aftermath of 9/11. Seemingly benign, supporting media technologies such as Powerpoint, YouTube, and Google Earth are often behind the scenes of larger media systems like television news, and have been used to extend the security regime into the spaces of everyday life.

Stanely Cohen’s study of deviant groups – society’s ‘folk devils’ – and the public and media reaction to them, is widely hailed as a classic of its kind. With great insight he reviews recent theory and criticism about the concept of ‘moral panics’ and discusses the moral panics surrounding the folk devils of recent times: ecstasy and designer drugs; the death of James Bulger; the ‘Name and Shame’ campaign against suspected paedophiles; and the vilification of ‘bogus’ asylum seekers.

This approach allows readers to assume the dual role of both teacher and student as they enter the conversation of the discipline and become familiar with some of the critical issues.New to this second edition are up-to-date primary source readings, additional assignments and classroom activities, an emphasis on new media and information literacy and their impact on the teaching of writing, and a companion website featuring a list of additional readings and instructor resources such as writing assignments and lecture notes.

Global Media, Culture, and Identity * Theory, Cases, and Approaches

Media and Democracy James Curran, Goldsmiths College, University of London, UK Series: Communication and Society Media and Democracy addresses key topics and themes in relation to democratic theory, media and technology, comparative media studies, media and history, and the evolution of media research. Curran provides both a clear introduction to media research, written for university undergraduates studying in different countries, and an innovative analysis written by one of the field’s leading scholars.

Edited by Rohit Chopra, Santa Clara University, USA and Radhika Gajjala, Bowling Green State University, USA The intedisciplinary, international scholars gathered here push the discussion of what it means to do global media studies beyond, on the one hand, uncritical and euphoric celebrations of the global media technologies (or globalization) and, on the other hand, perspectives that are a priori dismissive of the possibilities of global media. Some of the key questions and themes that the international contributors explore include: Is the global audience of global television the same as the global audience of the internet? Can we conceptualize the global culture-mediaidentity dynamic beyond the discourse of postcolonialism? How does the globalization of media affect feelings of nationalism? How is the growth of a consumer ‘global middle class’ spread, and resisted, through media?

Racial Spectacles Explorations in Media, Race, and Justice Jonathan Markovitz, University of California, San Diego, USA Racial Spectacles: Explorations in Race, Media, and Justice examines the crucial role the media has played in circulating and shaping national dialogues about race through demonstrations of crime and racialized violence. Jonathan Markovitz argues that mass media ‘racial spectacles’ often work to shore up racist stereotypes, but that they also provide opportunities to challenge prevalent conceptions of race, and can be seized upon as vehicles for social protest. This book explores a series of mass media spectacles revolving around the news, prime-time television, Hollywood cinema, and the internet that have either relied upon, reconfigured, or helped to construct collective memories of race, crime, and (in)justice. The case studies explored include the Scottsboro interracial rape case of the 1930s, the Kobe Bryant rape case, the Los Angeles Police Department’s ‘Rampart scandal’, the Abu Ghraib photographs, and a series of racist incidents at the University of California. This book will prove to be important not only for courses on race and media, but also for any reader interested in issues of the media’s role in social justice.

The Transcendence of the Ego

The Gender and Media Reader

A Sketch for a Phenomenological Description

Edited by Mary Celeste Kearney, University of Texas, Austin, USA

Jean-Paul Sartre

The Gender and Media Reader seeks to expand readers’ knowledge of how gender operates through media culture with a collection of classic, foundational writings upon which contemporary studies in this area are based. Taking an approach that considers gender broadly and examines media texts alongside their production and consumption, The Gender and Media Reader will enable readers’ critical thinking about how gender is constructed, contested, and subverted in different sites within media culture. In addition, the anthology will include introductions to each section that facilitate readers’ understanding of the development of gender and media studies by contextualizing the various topics, debates, and theoretical approaches that have shaped it, as well as by highlighting current trends.

Introduction by Sarah Richmond, University College London, UK Translated by Andrew Brown Series: Routledge Classics When The Transcendence of the Ego first appeared in 1936, Sartre was still largely unknown, working as a school teacher in provincial France and struggling to find a publisher for his most famous fictional work, Nausea. The Transcendence of the Ego is the outcome of Sartre’s intense engagement with the philosophy of Edmund Husserl, the founder of phenomenology. It offers a brilliant diagnosis of where Husserl went wrong, and a radical alternative account of the self as a product of consciousness, situated in the world. Sartre introduces many of the themes central to his major work, Being and Nothingness: the nature of consciousness, the problem of self-knowledge, other minds, anguish. This translation includes a thorough and illuminating introduction by Sarah Richmond, placing Sartre’s essay in its philosophical and historical context.

The Language and Style of Film Criticism

The Mobile Interface of Everyday Life

Edited by Andrew Klevan, The University of Oxford, UK and Alex Clayton, Bristol University, UK

Technology, Embodiment, and Culture Jason Farman, University of Maryland, USA

The Language and Style of Film Criticism brings together a range of essays from international academics and film critics highlighting the achievements, complexities and potential of film criticism. The book will be essential reading for all those engaged in the activity of writing about film – academics, students, and journalists – as well as readers of film criticism who wish to understand and appreciate its language and style.

In this book, Jason Farman shows how mobile technology has fundamentally altered our experience of everyday life. He argues that mobile media’s pervasive computing model, which allows users to connect and interact with the Web while moving across a wide variety of locations, has produced for a new sense of self for users, a new embodied identity that stems from virtual space and material space regularly enhancing, cooperating or disrupting each other. Farman explores everyday mobile media practices such as mapping, social networking, and gaming to demonstrate how pervasive computing is redefining both the way we experience and understand space and place. He also examines a number of new media-inspired art practices such as alternate reality games, flash mob performances, and location-based narratives that illustrate how mobile technology is creating virtual environments out of everyday, lived space.

The Life of Voices

The Music Industry Handbook

Bodies, Subjects and Dialogue

Paul Rutter, Southampton Solent University, UK

B. Hannah Rockwell, Loyola University Chicago, USA

Series: Media Practice

The Life of Voices illustrates how human voices have special significance as the place where mind and body collaborate to produce every day speech. Hannah Rockwell links Russian semiotician Mikhail Bakhtin’s philosophy of dialogue with French phenomenologist Maurice Merleau-Ponty’s views of the relation between bodies and speech expression to develop a unique theory of communication and bodies. Many scholars in communication, sociology, philosophy, psychology, linguistics, anthropology, gender studies and identity politics would find valuable insights, methods or examples in this work.

The Music Industry Handbook unpacks the complex structures contained in the current music industry and maps the industry as it exists today. Drawing from a range of sources, personal experience and interviews, and featuring a foreword by Feargal Sharkey, this book explains how the industry is structured, and how its various elements work in practice. Paul Rutter provides explanations of the many issues that individuals may encounter when studying the music industry, or when thinking about pursuing a career within it. Providing the necessary knowledge and insights to proceed with confidence, this tackles the ways in which music is created, consumed and exploited.

Thoughts on Shorts *

What Photography Is *

Reflections on Writing the Short Film

James Elkins, Art Institute of Chicago, USA

Charlie Moritz, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK

In What Photography Is, James Elkins examines the strange and alluring power of photography in the same provocative and evocative manner that he explored oil painting in his best-selling What Painting Is. Elkins argues that photograpy is also about meaninglessness – its apparently endless capacity to show us things that we do not want or need to see – and pain – extremely powerful images that can sear into our consciousness permanently. Extensively illustrated with a surprising range of images, Elkins demonstrates that what makes photography uniquely powerful is its ability to express the difficulty – physically, psychologically, emotionally, and aethstically – of the act of seeing.

Thoughts on Shorts takes a detailed look at a variety of short film scripts by award-winning writers including: Cup and Lip by Smita Bhide (2002), For the Love of God by Joe Tucker (2007), Ela by Silvana Aguirre (2007), La Virgine degli Angeli by Charles Sturridge from Aria (1987), Who’s My Favourite Girl? by Adrian McDowall (1999) and D.I.Y. Hard by Linda Cotterill (2002). Each script is introduced by Charlie Moritz and set in context before the full script is reproduced for study. The script is followed by an interview with the writer and some final thoughts from Moritz on how the film was received and how the writer’s intentions came through in the piece. Each film studied is readily available and accessible from the Thoughts on Shorts website, where you can also find short profiles of each of the filmmakers discussed in the book including filmographies, reviews of the shorts, and useful links.

Medieval Herbal Remedies

Peter Womack, University of East Anglia, UK

The Old English Herbarium and Anglo-Saxon Medicine

Series: The New Critical Idiom

Anne Van Arsdall

Playful and allusive, dialogue has often been the mode of expression for eccentrics and provocateurs, but can also claim to be the original format for Western Philosophy. In this clear and concise guide to the historical and contemporary significance of the term, Peter Womack: • considers the history of the dialogue form, looking at Platonic, Renaissance, Enlightenment and Modern examples • examines questions of writing versus conversation and public versus private, and how literary dialogue moves between the two • illustrates the use of dialogue in the many ‘voices ‘of the novel and considers the place of dramatic dialogue • looks at the influential dialogic theories of Mikhail Bakhtin. Practical and thought-provoking, this volume is the ideal springboard for those first encountering this diverse and fascinating literary form.

Philip Larkin

The Canon *

Andrew Motion, Royal Hollway, University of London

Christopher Kuipers, Eastern Illinois University, USA

Philip Larkin is recognised as one of the most important writers to have emerged in Britain since the Second World War. First published in 1982, Andrew Motion’s study begins with an account of Larkin’s life and literary background and discusses his literary relationship with Hardy and Yeats and his association with the Movement. He analyses Larkin’s two novels and assesses his three mature collections. Throughout the book much reference is made to uncollected reviews and articles and occasionally to unpublished manuscripts. Rather than developing the familiar line on Larkin as an empirical and melancholy writer, Andrew Motion explores the Symbolist and transcendent element in his work, and emphasises its range and variety.

Philip Roth Hermione Lee, Wolfson College, Oxford

Theory and the Disappearing Future

On its original publication in 1982 this book was the first full-length study of Philip Roth as a major twentieth-century writer. As well as setting the novelist’s work in the context of Jewish-American writing (and Jewish-American families) and twentieth-century American politics, the book explores the characteristic paradoxes in Roth: self-disgust and self-consciousness, restraint and letting go, nausea and appetite, energy and frustration, stylishness and vulgarity, surrealism and the mundane. Roth is a highly literary and referential character and an assessment is made of the conflicting influnces on his work of Kafka, Chekov, Gogol, Henry James, Melville and Henry Youngman, a Jewish nightclub and Vaudeville comic. In addition a close examination of his anxious, revolting, garrulous heroes, their mothers, their marriages, their shrinks, and their shiksas is undertaken and a deep seriousness is discovered, co-existing with Roth’s comic brashness and bravura.

Paul de Man is often associated with an era of ‘high theory’; an era it is argued may now be coming to a close. This book, written by three leading contemporary scholars, includes a previously unpublished text by de Man from his handwritten notes for a lecture on Walter Benjamin. Challenging and relevant, this volume presents de Man’s text as a critical resource for dealing with the most important questions of the twenty-first century, arguing for the place of theory within it. The contemporary Humanities must necessarily engage with dystopian narratives of globalisation, capitalism, environmental disaster and terrorist destruction. Through de Man, this volume draws out the implications of this engagement, exploring the limits of political thinking, historical retrieval and the ethics of archives and cultural memory.

What is ‘the canon’? Who determines it? How should it be read? These are the questions that preoccupied academics during the ‘theory wars’ of the late twentieth century and continue to challenge and define literary studies today. Considering why ‘the canon’ is such an important concept in literary studies, and explaining the key concepts and approaches to the debate, Christopher Kuipers: examines the history of the Western concept of ‘the canon’; discusses the modern and post-modern evolution of the canon; illustrates his argument with specific examples of alternative canons; explores how the canon relates to pedagogy and publication; and asks what the digital era portends for the canon.

Manav Ratti, University of Warwick, UK

Katherine Mannheimer, University of Rochester, USA

Series: Routledge Research in Postcolonial Literatures

Margarita Marinova, Christopher Newport University, USA

Series: Routledge Studies in Eighteenth-Century Literature

Through an intimate, literary conjunction of religion and politics, this book theorizes the emergence of a ‘post-secular’ condition of the contemporary world, where organized, conventional religion has failed politically. Ratti discusses recent Anglophone novels that reflect the multireligious nature of the Indian sub-continent, considering a range of religions and writers.

This study interprets eighteenth-century satire’s typographical obsession as a response to the Enlightenment’s ‘ocularcentric’ epistemological paradigms, and to an increasingly visual printculture focused on format, layout, and visual advertising strategies. Mannheimer studies the gender politics and broader ethical concerns of ocularcentrism in the works of Montagu, Swift, Pope, and Fielding.

Jokes and the Linguistic Mind Debra Aarons, University of New South Wales, Australia This book presents a detailed understanding of what the application of linguistic analysis to jokes can tell us about the mind. By using jokes that play on some aspect of the structure and function of a particular language (often referred to as ‘linguistic humor’), the author illustrates and provides additional evidence that listeners need to access their tacit knowledge of their own language. The book includes lively discussions of such topics as language play and humor creation with single and multiple linguistic features, jokes involving more than one language, jokes that are about language, and cryptic crosswords and letter play. With its use of jokes as data and its highly accessible explanations of complex linguistic concepts, this book is an appealing supplementary/recommended reading textbook for introductory courses in linguistics, psycholinguistics, cognitive linguistics, and cognitive science.

The Articulate Mammal An Introduction to Psycholinguistics Jean Aitchison, University of Oxford, UK Series: Routledge Classics Where does language come from? Is language restricted to humans? How do children acquire language so quickly? Why are Noam Chomsky’s theories of language so influential – and is he right? A classic in its field for almost forty years, The Articulate Mammal is a brilliant introduction to psycholinguistics.

Acting for Animators

Auditioning for the Camera

Ed Hooks

Joseph Hacker, University of Southern California, USA Ed Hooks’ indispensable acting guidebook for animators returns. Ed uses basic acting theory to explain everything from character movement and facial expressions to interaction and scene construction. Just as acting on film and on stage are very different disciplines, so is the use of acting theory in creating an animated character, scene or story. New to this edition:

To win a screen role, an actor must learn to contend with an on-camera audition. Understanding how to make the crucial adjustments to one’s craft that this kind of audition requires is vital to the career of any screen actor. Auditioning for the Camera sets out the key elements of a successful on-camera audition and explains how to put them into practice. Key elements examined include:

• illustrated, scene-by-scene analyses of six films, including Up, Coraline and Kung Fu Panda

• textual analysis

• an expanded chapter on video game animation • all-new illustrations

• knowing where to look • dealing with nerves • on-camera interviews • using the environment

• a history of acting in 500 words.

• retaining the camera’s focus.

Author Robert Barton uses the NLP approach to illustrate a range of innovative methods to help the actor and directors, including:

Matthew Wagner, Victoria University of Wellington This book investigates time in Shakespearean theatre. Wagner posits that theatrical, and especially Shakespearean, time is characterized predominantly by various forms of temporal conflict. From this perspective, he traces the ways in which time transcends thematic and metaphorical functions, and forms an essential part of Shakespearean stage praxis.

Teachers are the most important single element of the education system but what does it take to create high-quality teachers? In this book, leading international scholars describe the systemic policies and practices of teacher education in eight high-achieving countries – Finland, Singapore, the Netherlands, the UK, Hong Kong, Canada, Australia and the USA – and how they are dealing with teacher quality, equity, and the changing global society. An interesting diversity of policies and practices that support different emphases and changes in education is revealed – from those that emphasize the preparation of beginning teachers to those that emphasize teacher retention to those that emphasize critical policies and curriculum change.

Profound Improvement

Edited by Rebecca Powell, Georgetown College, Kentucky, USA and Elizabeth Rightmyer, Independent Education/Research Consultant, USA The Culturally Responsive Instruction Observation Protocol (CRIOP) is a framework for implementing culturally relevant literacy instruction and classroom observation. Drawing on research and theory reflecting a range of perspectives – multicultural instruction, literacy theory, equity pedagogy, language and discourse models, sheltered instruction, critical pedagogy – it provides a means for assessing the many variables of classroom literacy instruction and for guiding practitioners in their development as multicultural educators. The book includes classroom examples, written by teachers, showing their victories and struggles as they attempt to implement a pedagogy that is culturally responsive within a climate of high stakes testing. A highly effective instrument for assessing culturally responsive literacy instruction in schools, the CRIOP serves as a model for realizing a literacy that is both relevant and transformative.

Building Capacity for a Learning Community Coral Mitchell, Brock University, Canada and Larry Sackney, University of Saskatchewan, Canada Series: Contexts of Learning This revised and updated edition of Profound Improvement not only brings this important work up-to-date but also shows how the authors thinking has changed and developed since the book was originally written. The book focuses on the life of educators as it relates to professional learning and growth. It is concerned with human growth and development, human cognition and affect and human interactions and actions in the context of a school community. For the new edition the authors also: elaborate more fully the notion of learning communities based on living systems and ecological perspectives; and develop their capacity building model. They show that building a learning community is a dynamic process that engages the individual, the group and the organization in embedded interdependencies and mutual influences. As the authors clearly demonstrate: education is a living system as opposed to a managed system.

Literacy for All Students

What does professional responsibility entail in an increasingly insecure, unpredictable and de-regulated world? This is the core question addressed in this text. The point of departure for the various contributions is that Professional Responsibility is a way of being in the world that includes a particular mandate – to behave in a manner consistent with moral and societal obligations as a professional. Increasingly, however, there is a lack of consensus as to what such mandates imply, and even more dissensus as to what appropriate exercise of responsibility entails. One of the distinctive features of this book is the manner in which it combines normative and empirical dimensions. It moves beyond dualistic perspectives to create a more inclusive conversation on professional responsibility. eBooks are only available to order online

Reclaiming Reading Reappropriating and Cultivating Reading for the 21st Century

new in paperback

Edited by Richard J. Meyer, University of New Mexico, USA and Kathryn F. Whitmore, University of Iowa, USA Inviting teachers back to the role of reflective advocates for thoughtful reading instruction, this book presents theory and pedagogical possibilities to reclaim and build upon the knowledge base that was growing when government mandates, scripted commercial programs, and high stakes tests took over as the dominant agenda for reading instruction in U.S. public schools. It examines how the teaching of reading can be reclaimed via an intensive reconsideration of five pillars as central to the teaching and learning of reading: learning, teaching, curriculum, language, and sociocultural contexts. Explaining what happens in readers’ minds as they read, and how teachers can design practices to support that process, Reclaiming Reading offers the knowledge base for taking good reading instruction out of the cracks and placing it back at the center of the classroom, informing and encouraging teachers to the stance of reflective, knowledgeable, professional decision-makers.

A Social Studies Approach Alan J. Singer, Hofstra University, USA Teaching Global History challenges prospective and beginning social studies teachers to formulate their own views about what is important to know in global history and why. It explains how to organize the curriculum around broad social studies concepts and themes and student questions about humanity, history, and the contemporary world. All chapters include lesson ideas, a sample lesson plan, primary source documents, and helpful visuals. The traditional curriculum tends to highlight the Western heritage, and to race through epochs and regions, leaving little time for an in-depth exploration of concepts and historical themes, for the evaluation of primary and secondary sources, and for students to draw their own historical conclusions. Offering an alternative to such pre-packaged textbook outlines and materials, this text is a powerful resource for promoting thoughtful reflection and debate about what the global history curriculum should be and how to teach it.

Assessment for learning (Afl) has become an accepted term in Higher Education in the UK and beyond and features in the learning and teaching strategies of many universities. Often staff in HE are uncertain about how to implement AfL especially in times of constrained resources and this vital new guide provides low cost solutions that make best use of this essential new assessment tool. Providing an accessible blend of practical examples the authors suggest small-scale,’do-able’ ideas for the introduction of AfL. With practical case studies, suggestions include approaches to foster effective learning environments and communities via: collaboration; research-based learning; social interaction; peer interaction; and inquiry-based learning. Filling a vital gap in assessment literature, this book will become a useful handbook to guide all academic practitioners.

Both sacred and secular worldviews have long held a place in U.S. higher education, although non-religious perspectives have been privileged in most institutions in the modern era. Sacred and Secular Tensions in Higher Education illustrates the importance of cultivating multiple worldviews at public, private, and faith-based colleges and universities in the interest of academic freedom, and intellectual and moral dialogue. Contributors argue that sacred perspectives are as integral to contemporary higher education in the United States as the more dominant secular perspectives. The debates and issues addressed attempt to rebalance the dialogue and place an emphasis on pluralism, rather than declare victory of one paradigm over the other. Student affairs administrators, higher education and religious studies faculty, and campus ministers and chaplains will benefit from better understanding the interplay of these ideas on campus, and the impact of the debate on the lives of faculty, students, and staff.

Diversity in American Higher Education Toward a More Comprehensive Approach Edited by Lisa M. Stulberg and Sharon Lawner Weinberg, both at New York University, USA Diversity has been a focus of higher education policy, law, and scholarship for decades, continually expanding to include not only race, ethnicity and gender, but also socioeconomic status, sexual and political orientation and more. Yet, existing collections still tend to focus on diversity in education as narrowly defined, or in relation to singular topics like access to higher education, financial aid, and affirmative action. By contrast, Diversity in American Higher Education captures in one volume the wide range of critical issues that comprise the current discourse on diversity on the college campus in its broadest sense.

The Engaged University International Perspectives on Civic Engagement David Watson,University of London, UK, Susan E. Stroud, Innovations in Civic Participation, USA, Robert Hollister, Tufts University, USA and Elizabeth Babcock, Innovations in Civic Participation, USA Series: International Studies in Higher Education University civic engagement encompasses a broad range of efforts to directly apply university resources to the communities and societies in which they are located. These activities include applied research, community service learning courses, education and training of non-matriculated groups, community development partnerships, and student volunteering. The Engaged University is a fully empirical account of a genuinely global movement of higher education institutions to increase university civic engagement. Based on the self-assessment policies and practices of an international network of over 20 universities committed to social and civic service, it examines the everyday their objectives, management and achievements.

Choosing Change

Lorri J. Santamaría and Andrés P. Santamaría, both at California State University, San Marcos, USA

Bob Lingard, University of Queensland, Australia and Shaun Rawolle, Charles Sturt University, Australia

Educational researchers, leaders, and practitioners are seeing the increasing need for practical transformative models and theories to address academic, cultural, and socio-economic gaps separating learners at all levels of the educational system. This book argues the need to transform status quo educational practices and explores an applied leadership model arising from critical theory and critical pedagogy traditions. The authors examine qualitative case studies featuring critical leaders in early childhood education, elementary school, middle school, high school, district level, and higher education, and follow with analysis, discussion, and application questions for readers to address.

This book thus breaks new ground methodologically and in terms of its application of Bourdieu specifically within education policy studies in the context of globalization and provides a new approach to education policy studies, derived from Bourdieu, and suitable for today’s context of multilevel governance and post-national pressures. It is the first book length analysis of education policy, situated in the context of contemporary globalization, and using all of Bourdieu’s ‘thinking tools’ and his reflexive methodology.

Curriculum scholars and teachers working for social justice and equity have been caught up in acrimonious and polarizing political debates over content, ideology, and disciplinary knowledge. At the forefront in cutting through these debates and addressing the practical questions of the ‘technical form’ of the syllabus, this volume advances a unified, principled approach to the design of syllabus documents that aims for high quality/high equity educational outcomes. It introduces and unpacks definitions of curriculum, syllabus, the school subject, and ‘informed professionalism’; presents principles of design that are key to equitable teaching and learning; discusses a range of approaches; and offers clear and practical guidelines for writing curriculum documents and designing official syllabi and professional development programs at system and school levels. Examples from the US, Canada, Europe and Asia are included.

This book provides a detailed overview of the sociology of Basil Bernstein. It locates his thinking within the history of the field of British sociology in his life-time and also explores the classical sources in Durkheim and Marx. A major argument is that Bernstein needs to be located in first instance within a tradition in cultural anthropology that goes back to the linguistic theories of Whorf and Sapir. His relationships with the anthropologist, Mary Douglas, and the linguist, Michael Halliday are examined in these terms and the intellectually collaborative character of Bernstein’s evolving system of ideas is explored. This approach brings out the distinctive originality of Bernstein’s contribution to social theory. eBooks are only available to order online

Deconstructing Digital Natives

Educating for the Knowledge Economy?

Young People, Technology, and the New Literacies Edited by Michael Thomas, University of Central Lancashire, UK The term ‘digital native’ refers to the generation born after 1980, which has grown up in a world where digital technologies and the internet are a normal part of everyday life. Young people belonging to this generation are therefore supposed to be ‘native’ to the digital lifestyle, always connected to the internet and comfortable with a range of cuttingedge technologies. Deconstructing Digital Natives offers the most balanced, research-based view of this group to date. Existing studies of digital natives lack application to specific disciplines or conditions, ignoring the differences of educational fields and gender.

Culture, Encounter, and Change Jane Roland Martin, University of Massachusetts Boston, USA As philosophers throughout the ages have asked: what is justice? What is truth? What is art? What is law? In Education Reconfigured , the internationally acclaimed philosopher of education, Jane Roland Martin, now asks: what is education? In answer, she puts forward a unified theory that casts education in a brand new light. Martin’s ‘theory of education as encounter’ places culture alongside the individual at the heart of the educational process, thus responding to the call John Dewey made over a century ago for an enlarged outlook on education. Look through her theory’s lens and you can see that education takes place not only in school but at home, on the street, in the mall – everywhere and all the time. Look through that lens and you can see that education does not always spell improvement; rather, it can be for the better or the worse. Indeed, you can see that education is inevitably a maker and shaper of both individuals and cultures.

An unorthodox account of the knowledge economy and economic globalisation suggests that autonomy in the workplace and permission to think will be only given to the elite because of the introduction of digital taylorism which routinises much of the knowledge work that once required judgement and creativity. There are at least two reasons underlying such a view; it may be argued that in terms of the principle of equity all children should have an education that holds out the possibility that they may ascend the credential ladder to become knowledge workers; additionally it has been argued that such an education would provide the basis for entrepreneurialism. In this book, leading scholars from the US, the UK, Australia and New Zealand discuss these issues and interrogate the assumptions and links between the different elements of education and how they might relate to the economy.

Educational Therapy in Action Behind and Beyond the Office Door Dorothy Fink Ungerleider This book goes behind the clinician’s door to illustrate the unusual and broad range of interventions – both academic/ vocational and social/emotional – that an educational therapist employs. This particular case study involves a young woman named Nora who had a severe but undiagnosed auditory processing disorder. She could not give meaning to the spoken language that came at her too rapidly, leaving her in a constant fog of words that she couldn’t comprehend. This case discloses the problems, their causes, and the emotional toll that had to be considered in developing an effective educational/therapeutic plan for Nora. It vividly illustrates the dynamic exchanges and mutual learning that goes on between client and therapist. Parts I and II illustrate how the psycho-educational interventions that addressed Nora’s academic and non-academic needs were gradually formulated over the first year. Part III provides a series of vignettes from subsequent years that illustrate the ongoing applications of the therapist’s work.

Marx and Education

Shaping Education Policy

Jean Anyon, CUNY Graduate Center, USA

Power and Process

Series: Routledge Key Ideas in Education

Edited by Douglas E. Mitchell, University of California, Riverside, USA, Robert L. Crowson, Vanderbilt University, USA and Dorothy Shipps, Baruch College, USA

This concise, introductory book by Jean Anyon centers on the ideas of Marx that have been used in education studies as a guide to theory, analysis, research, and practice. Marxism and Education begins with a brief overview of basic Marxist ideas and terms and then traces some of the main points scholars in education have been articulating since the late 1970s. Following this trajectory, Anyon details how social class analysis has developed in research and theory, how understanding the roles of education in society is influenced by a Marxian lens, how the failures of urban school reform can be understood through the lens of political economy, and how cultural analysis has laid the foundation for critical pedagogy in U.S. classrooms. She assesses ways neo-Marxist thought can contribute to our understanding of issues that have arisen more recently and how a Marxist analysis can be important to an adequate understanding and transformation of the future of education and the economy.

Shaping Education Policy is a comprehensive overview of education politics and policy during the most turbulent and rapidly changing period in American history. Respected scholars review the history of education policy to explain the political powers and processes that shape education today. Chapters cover major themes that have influenced education, including the civil rights movement, federal involvement, the accountability movement, family choice, and development of nationalization and globalization. Sponsored by the Politics of Education Association, this edited collection examines the tumultuous shifts in education policy over the last six decades and projects the likely future of public education. This book is a necessary resource for understanding the evolution, current status, and possibilities of educational policy and politics.

Urban Education

The Great Literacy Debate

A Model for Leadership and Policy

A Critical Response to the Literacy Strategy and the Framework for English

Edited by Karen Gallagher, Estela Bensimon, Dominic Brewer and Rodney Goodyear, all at University of Southern California, USA Many factors complicate the education of urban students. Among them have been issues related to population density; racial, ethnic, cultural, and linguistic diversity; poverty; racism (individual and institutional); and funding levels. Although urban educators have been addressing these issues for decades, placing them under the umbrella of ‘urban education’ and treating them as a specific area of practice and inquiry is relatively recent. Despite the wide adoption of the term a consensus about its meaning exists at only the broadest of levels. In short, urban education remains an ill-defined concept. This comprehensive volume addresses this definitional challenge and provides a 3-part conceptual model in which the achievement of equity for all – regardless of race, gender, or ethnicity – is an ideal that is central to urban education. for e-mail updates in your field


The National Literacy Strategy, and its secondary version, The Framework for English, is considered the most ambitious educational reform programme in the world. In its 10 year history it affected every primary and secondary teacher in the country and, therefore, every child. This book is the first definitive, and objective, attempt to examine the actual impact of these reforms. The contributors are amongst the most respected experts on literacy and English from the UK and from across the world, and they do both justice to the policies and practices that developed, and examine them critically. The book will interest anyone concerned about literacy, whether a policy maker or a classroom teacher. Readers from around the world will be able to put this huge and vastly expensive initiative into a genuine and evidence-based perspective and to consider the lessons learned from both its ambitions and its failures.

Series: Critical Social Thought Urban education and its contexts have changed in powerful ways. Old paradigms are being eclipsed by global forces of privatization and markets and new articulations of race, class, and urban space. Using Chicago as a case study of the interconnectedness of neoliberal urban policies on housing, economic development, race, and education, Lipman explores larger implications for equity, justice, and ‘the right to the city’. She draws on scholarship in critical geography, urban sociology and anthropology, education policy, and critical analyses of race. Her critical appraisal offers a significant contribution to current arguments about urban schooling and how we think about relations between neoliberal education reforms and the transformation of cities. By examining the cultural politics of why and how these relationships resonate with people’s lived experience, Lipman pushes the analysis one step further toward a new educational and social paradigm rooted in radical political and economic democracy.

Moral Education in sub-Saharan Africa

Pedagogy of Multiliteracies Rewriting Goldilocks

Culture, Economics, Conflict and AIDS Edited by Sharlene Swartz, Human Sciences Research Council, South Africa and Monica Taylor, University of London, UK

Heather Lotherington, York University, Canada Series: Routledge Research in Education

This book challenges prevailing and dominant Global North frameworks on moral education by showing how an African perspective may be employed to address seemingly intractable problems such as the legacies of ethnic conflict, genocide, Apartheid, poverty and HIV/AIDS. This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of Moral Education.

Based on case studies from public schools in Toronto, Canada, this book aims to develop a theory and practice of teaching multiliteracies in culturally diverse, linguistically heterogeneous urban classrooms. Lotherington argues that in a globalized world literacy must be reassessed on an international scale and multilingualism must be theorized – and practiced – as a component of multimodal literacy.

Personal Epistemology and Teacher Education

Protestant Legacies, National Identities, and Global Aspirations

Daniel Tröhler, University of Luxembourg Series: Studies in Curriculum Theory Series In this landmark contribution to the study of the formation of the modern school, Daniel Tröhler applies one of the most recognized methods of historical research to an analysis of the ‘language’ of the academic discipline of education. Arguing the value of looking at languages rather than arguments – langues rather than paroles – this method of historical research is used to examine the background of different philosophies, theories, or arguments of education, specifically republicanism and Protestantism.

For the very first time, and through observance of strict anonymity, the personal accounts of transnational elite participants shed light on the critical question of who runs the world and why they run it the way they do.

The Era of Socioeconomic Transition Theodore J. Davis Jr., University of Delaware, USA

Democracy at Last?

Series: Routledge Series on Identity Politics

Daniel C. Hellinger, Webster University, USA

Theodore Davis argues that the greatest threat to the social and political cohesiveness of the so-called black community may be the rise of a socially and economically privileged group among the ranks of black America. This rift has affected its ability to organize effectively and influence politics. Davis traces the changes in economic status, public opinion, political power and participation, and leadership over three generations of black politics. The result is an insightful analysis of black politics today.

Dialectics and Contemporary Politics Critique and Transformation from Hegel to Post-Marxism John Grant, McMaster University, Canada Series: Routledge Innovations in Political Theory Dialectics and Contemporary Politics develops a full theory of dialectics in order to reset the terms of dialectical critique and affirm its ability to produce radical insights about contemporary society. Dialectical thought has been the subject of sustained criticism since the 1960s, when competing approaches such as structuralism, genealogy, deconstruction and post-Marxism took political theorizing in new directions. Far from simply rehabilitating old ideas, however, this work offers an original theory of dialectics that is flexible, intelligent and coherent, and which can account for more than just capitalism and the labour movement.

Interrogating Democracy in World Politics * Edited by Joe Hoover, Meera Sabaratnam and Laust Schouenborg, all at London School of Economics, Editor, Millennium Journal Series: Routledge Advances in International Relations and Global Politics

Epistemological Liberalism Culture, Justice and the State Adam James Tebble, University of Buckingham, UK Series: Routledge Innovations in Political Theory How should the State respond to the different and sometimes conflicting identity-based justice claims made by its citizens? To what extent should majority societies accede to the claims of immigrant groups whose conflicting values are so different to their own? Drawing on the work of economist and political theorist Friederich Hayek, the author builds a major critique of the role of public institutions and of contemporary responses to cultural diversity and the underlying principles for justice. Discovering Cultural Justice seeks to defend an ‘epistemological’ account of liberalism as the most appropriate response to the challenges facing justice in a culturally diverse and socially complex modern society. An invaluable contribution to contemporary debates about justice, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of culture and identity, contemporary political theory/ philosophy and liberal political theory.

This book provides an original and thoroughly academic analysis of the link between Russian energy and foreign policies in Eurasia, as well as offering an interpretation of Russia’s coherence on the international stage.

This important new study empirically assesses the relationship between religion and democracy, looking at the global, regional and individual country picture. Examining religions including Christianity, Islam Buddhism, Hinduism, Chinese folk religion, Confucianism, Taoism and Judaism, Anckar seeks to demonstrate that the political context is more important than religious affiliation for explaining attitudes towards democracy.

Series: ASPA Series in Public Administration and Public Policy Much of the published work on disaster response has focused on specific disasters, highlighting what went wrong. Taking a new approach, this book explores using transformation leadership principles to change individuals and entire departments, redefining the way organizations approach disaster preparation and response, and as a consequence, change the mission of the organizations to be collaborative rather than competitive. Rather than focus on replacing people and/or centralizing responsibility, Lester takes readers through a stepby-step process of how to achieve collaboration. He includes implementation plans to make each concept into workable, effective strategies that can be used immediately.

Understanding the Politics of Pandemic Scares An Introduction to Global Politosomatics Mika Aaltola, The Finnish Institue of International Affairs, Helsinki Series: Routledge Studies in Governance and Public Policy Reactions to pandemics are unlike any other global emergency; with an emphasis on withdrawal and containment of the sight of the infected. Dealing with the historical and conceptual background of diseases in politics and international relations, this volume investigates the global political reaction to pandemic scares. By evaluating anxiety and the political response to pandemics as a legitimisation of the modern state and its ability to protect its citizens from infectious disease, Understanding the Politics of Pandemic Scares examines the connection between international health governance and the emerging Western liberal world order.

Terrorist Financing, Money Laundering and Tax Evasion

Terrorist Rehabilitation A look Inside the Detainee Rehabilitation Programs in Iraq Ami M. Angell and Rohan Gunaratna, both at IDSS, Singapore

Examining the Performance of Financial Intelligence Units Jayesh D’Souza, Florida International University, USA Using the Balanced Scorecard method for assessment, this book explores the effectiveness of a government’s financial intelligence units in combating terrorist financing. It explores the large-scale misuse of funds to commit financial crimes, describes how easy it is for criminals, and reviews the inter-jurisdictional problems involved. Contributions from politicians, government policy analysts, auditors, regulators, police officers, lawyers, bankers, and academics provide various perspectives. Case studies demonstrate innovative solutions and crime fighting strategies. Although focused on the U.S., Canada, Australia, The European Union, the UK, Spain, and Holland, the strategies apply to all countries.

Illuminating the resounding success and sustained positive after-effects of the all too often underutilized and underfunded rehabilitation programs for terrorist detainees, this book draws on the experience and expertise of military commanders and ground staff, local professionals, and civilians actively engaged in the rehabilitation process to quell misinformation on the subject. Using interviews, unclassified photos, detainee and personnel testimonials, and numerous examples, it provides support, know-how, and tips to avoid pitfalls allowing countries to embrace and pursue the utilization of detainee rehabilitation as the next necessary course of action in combating and eliminating global terrorism.

A Social History of Healing in India *

An Emerging Non-Regular Labour Force in Japan

Buddhist and Christian?

De-centring Indigenous Medicine

The Dignity of Dispatched Workers

Rose Drew, University of Glasgow, UK

Projit Bihari Mukharji, McMaster University, Canada

Huiyan Fu, Aalen University, Germany

Series: Routledge Critical Studies in Buddhism

Series: Nissan Institute/Routledge Japanese Studies

Series: Routledge/Edinburgh South Asian Studies Series

Like many industrialised nations, the current employment trend in Japan centres on the diversification of the labour market with an increased use of temporary labour. Among a wide range of non-regular labour arrangements, haken, or ‘dispatched workers’ are a newly legalised category of non-regular workers who are typically employed by the employment agency while working at the facilities of and being under the authority of the client firm. In recent years, their numbers have expanded exponentially under the state’s deregulation policy and assumed considerable symbolic significance in public debate, especially with regard to the nation’s ‘widening gaps’. Drawing on a range of ethnographic data and documented materials, the book seeks to bring a better understanding of personhood in Japan’s shifting landscape of employment. Huiyan Fu’s book will be of huge interest to students and scholars of Japanese business, organisational behaviour, employment relations and Japanese anthropology.

This is a detailed exploration of Buddhist Christian dual belonging, engaging – from both Buddhist and Christian perspectives – the questions that arise, and drawing on extensive interviews with well-known individuals in the vanguard of this important and growing phenomenon.

In an analysis of popular and subaltern healing practices in India, this book re-connects the history of medicine with the social and political history of the region.

This book is path-breaking in that it analyses Asian historical experiences of polity expansion, examining the motives, mechanisms and justifications for territorial expansion by Asian polities from premodern times.

Series: Routledge Studies on China in Transition The aim of this book is to draw attention to two neglected areas in the growing body of research on welfare in China: subnational variation and the changing mix of state and non-state provision. The contributors to this volume highlight the local, or sub-national, variation that lies behind broad national policies and programmes that is growing from divergent local government and non-state activities. This approach is particularly relevant to understanding welfare provision in China because national state programmes are so often organised by local governments in line with the specifics of their economic and social development, while at the same time that social and economic development itself is independently creating differential conditions for non-state (family, business and third sector) provision.

Islam is a religion but there are also popular cultures of Islam that are mass mediated, commercialized, pleasure-filled, humorous, and representative of large segments of society. This book illuminates how Muslims (and non-Muslims) in Indonesia and Malaysia make sense of their lives within an increasingly pervasive, popular culture of Islamic images, texts, film, songs, and narratives.

The book explores how Muslims in Mumbai and Ahmedabad coped with the aftermath of the violence directed against them in 1993 and 2002 respectively. It shows how they responded to the ethnic carnages of which they were victims, highlighting the importance of the context and situated history of the violence.

Japan in the Age of Globalization Edited by Carin Holroyd and Ken Coates, both at University of Waterloo, Canada Series: Routledge Contemporary Japan Series This collection examines the impact of globalization on Japan and the impact of Japan on the forces of globalization from the various disciplinary perspectives of business, the economy, politics, technology, culture and society. It also explains the manner in which the nation has responded to the economic and cultural liberalization that has been such a profound force for change around the globe.

Chinese students are the largest international student population in the world, and Japan attracts more of them than any other country. Since the mid-1980s when China opened the door to let private citizens out and Japan began to let more foreigners in, over 300 thousand Chinese have arrived in Japan as students. The majority of them enter Japan’s labor market and many have stayed on indefinitely. This book investigates this educationally channeled labor migration from China to Japan giving a comprehensive portrayal of an often neglected group of international migrants in a society that for decades has been considered a non-immigrant country. It examines the labor market outcomes of international student migration and explores how these outcomes contribute to our understanding of international migration and international education in an age of globalization.

Series: Routledge Contemporary Southeast Asia Series This book both considers labour migration in its totality, showing how the divide between illegal and legal migration is often blurred, and also examines how governmental and international measures to counter illegal migration are translated into action on the ground, and what impact on all kinds of migration they have in practice.

Thirty years have passed since the beginning of the reform era in China which saw important changes in agriculture and rural organizations, but it is clear that certain entrenched legacies from pre-reform China still linger on even after WTO accession, most importantly the key role played by state actors and politics in general in the development of markets in rural China. Although increasingly diversified markets have emerged for major agricultural inputs and products, their development cannot be understood without taking this role into account. Moreover, the current central government has embarked on a number of crucial new policies to push rural modernization forward and thus the role of the state in rural development has been re-invigorated in recent years. As a fresh account of rural politics and markets in China this book will appeal to students and scholars of Chinese politics, economics, development studies and political economy.

Social Networks and Japanese Democracy The Beneficial Impact of Interpersonal Communication in East Asia Ken’ichi Ikeda, Univeristy of Tokyo, Japan and Sean Richey, Georgia State University, USA Series: Routledge Contemporary Japan Series With Japan as its focus, this book examines the role of social networks and political discussion in Japanese political culture and asks whether discursive participatory democracy is indeed possible in East Asia. In order to answer this queston the authors undertook the largest academic political survey ever conducted in Japan to give the book exceptional empirical credence. This data reveals how the Japanese people interact politically concluding that through the powerful influence of social networks on Japanese political behaviour Japan has a more globalized and less hierarchical society where Confucian culture is not dominant and where creation of a vibrant civil society is possible . This book will be invaluable for students and scholars of Japanese politics, democracy, civil society and globalisation.

Taiwan’s Economic Transformation Leadership, Property Rights and Institutional Change Tai-Chun Kuo and Ramon H. Myers, both at Stanford University, USA Series: Routledge Research on Taiwan Series

This book is the first to comprehensively chart the development of Southeast Asia’s relations with the People’s Republic of China from 1949 to 2010, detailing each of the eleven countries’ ties to China. In addition to assessing bilateral ties, it also examines the institutionalization of relations between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and China, and is a timely contribution to Asia Pacific security Studies.

This book charts the period before Taiwan’s postwar economic miracle took hold (1949–1965) and proffers that it was the Kuomintang Government’s endorsement of property rights reform and institutional change that enabled Taiwan to transform from an impoverished command economy to a market-based economy, which in turn led to Taiwan becoming one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Using first-hand interview material with key government officials from the period, and analysis of hitherto unused Chinese-language archives, this book is empirically very rich. Taiwan’s Economic Transformation will be an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the economic and political history and development of Taiwan. More broadly it will also appeal to scholars and students of China’s historical and contemporary development.

The Politics of Community Building in Urban China Thomas Heberer, University of Duisberg-Essen, Germany and Christian Göbel, Lund University, Sweden Series: Chinese Worlds The aim of this book is to make sense of the recent reform of neighbourhood institutions in urban China. It builds on the observation that the late 1990s saw a comeback of the state in urban China after the increased economization of life in the 1980s had initially forced it to withdraw from society. The authors hypothesise that the central government has indeed displayed an impressive adaptive capacity with regards to the social problems in China’s shequs . It has managed to bring the party-state back into urban society by enhancing its infrastructural power to provide better social welfare and improve public security. In testing this hypothesis, the book examines in great detail the rationales, strategies and impacts of this comeback by analyzing systematically how the reorganization of neighbourhood committees was actually conducted.

Tiger Girls * Women and Enterprise in the People’s Republic of China Minglu Chen, University of Sydney, Australia Series: Routledge Studies on China in Transition The last three decades in the People’s Republic of China have been characterized by decentralization, marketization and privatization. What might be expected from a developing country like China with a significant number of women in the labour force? Do the traditional values of male superiority still stay the same in the background of China’s great social change? The notion of ‘tiger girls’ seems to reflect one of the alternative paths that is now becoming available to the modern Chinese woman. The social development and changes in recent China have provided women with access to education, employment, and independent income. Consequently, they are casting off obedient and subordinate roles and gaining more and more individual power and strength outside the home. Using empirical research findings from three localities in China, Tiger Girls examines the deeper realities of women entrepreneurs in China, and by extension the role of leading women in the workforce.

Simon Hallsworth, London Metropolitan University, UK Are there distinctive postmodern forms of punishment? Is the contemporary ‘punitive’ turn in the United States a sign of things to come in Europe? Is modern rationality at odds with violence or the means to applying violence systematically? Punitive States links these key contemporary debates in criminology, penology and social theory together and offers an alternative analysis inspired by Georges Bataille and Rene Girard, concluding with three dramatic case studies that relate the foregoing arguments to contemporary cultural forms and political decisions.

Edited by Colin J. Bennett, University of Victoria, USA and Kevin D. Haggerty Security Games addresses the impact of mega-events – such as the Olympic Games and the World Cup – on wider practices of security and surveillance. ‘Mega-Events’ now serve as focal points for the proliferation of security and surveillance. They are microcosms of larger trends and processes, through which – as the contributors to this volume demonstrate – we can observe the complex ways that security and surveillance are now implicated in unique confluences of technology, institutional motivations, and public-private security arrangements. As the exceptional conditions of the mega-event become the norm, Security Games therefore provides the glimpse of a possible future that is more intensively and extensively monitored.

Strange Gods * Legal Theology in a Modern Age

2nd Edition

Peter Fitzpatrick, Birkbeck, University of London, UK

Staying Safe at School

Legal Theology provides a genealogy of modern law as a secular theology, calling into question the received ideas that modern law is radically different from its religious antecedents, and that modernity involved a repudiation of theological concepts. Peter Fitzpatrick charts the lineage of this secular theology through three ‘historicities’: the creation of the world’s imperium, of the modern world-system, in the sixteenth century; the time of revolutions of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; and the high modernism of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Respectively condensed here in the writings of Vitoria, Hobbes and Nietzsche, Fitzpatrick documents the substitution of a monotheistic God by successive articulations of a persistently ‘deific’ law. Legal Theology thus questions the story of secularism’s triumph, by eliciting the essentially religious force of modern law: a force that is, moreover, recognisable in secularism’s contemporary imperial mission.

Written by veteran law enforcement and family counseling professionals, the second edition of this guidebook shows students and parents on how to stay safe at school. The book pinpoints personal safety issues of importance to all educators and explains how to analyze schools for security risks. It also includes proven methods for averting crime, improving school safety, and avoiding being a victim.

Visualizing Law in the Age of the Digital Baroque

The United States, International Law and the Struggle against Terrorism

Arabesques and Entanglements Richard K. Sherwin

Thomas McDonnell, Pace University, USA

Series: Discourses of Law

Series: Routledge Research in International Law

Visualizing Law in the Age of the Digital Baroque explores the profound impact that visual digital technologies are having on the practice, teaching, and theory of law. What happens to law when it takes on the life of an image on the screen? This question is no idle speculation. Law today lives in images the way images live on the screen. But what is real, and what is simulation? Might it be that we are living in a baroque dream, a contingent world, like an all too vivid video game, that opens onto endless others? It is no accident that the film, The Matrix, struck a nerve worldwide. Without justice, laws endlessly proliferate within a field of uncertainty and longing. To meet this crisis, Law, Ethics and the Digital Baroque identifies the contemporary conditions in which law lives as a digital image on the screen; arguing for a post-positivist jurisprudential paradigm that is adequate to the challenge these conditions present.

This book discusses the critica l legal issues raised by the US responses to the terrorist threat, analyzing their compliance with international law. The book extrapolates from the actions of the USA, going on to look at the difficulties all modern democracies face in trying to combat international terrorism.

Critical Reflections on the Status of Irregular Migrants in Europe and the United States Edited by Marie-Benedicte Dembour, University of Sussex, UK and Toby Kelly, University of Edinburgh, UK Are Human Rights for Migrants? Critical Reflections on the Status of Irregular Migrants in Europe and the United States examines upon the possibilities and limitations which arise from approaching the situation of migrants in human rights terms. Bringing together a range of international experts, the book addresses three sets of questions, of tremendous current theoretical and practical import: What do we mean by human rights when we talk about the human rights of migrants? Is the problematic access of migrants to human rights protection inherent within the concept of human rights, or is it attributable to a defect in their implementation? Should we look beyond human rights for an effective source of protection for migrants? Routledge «Market: Law / Politics April 2011: 234x156: 208pp Hb: 978-0-415-61906-6: £75.00

Thalia Anthony Indigenous People, Crime and Punishment examines criminal sentencing courts’ changing characterisations of Indigenous peoples’ identity, culture and postcolonial status. Focusing largely on Australian Indigenous peoples, but referring also to the Canadian and New Zealand experiences, Thalia Anthony critically analyses how the judiciary have interpreted Indigenous difference. Through an analysis of Indigenous sentencing decisions and remarks over a fifty year period in a number of jurisdictions, the book demonstrates how discretion is moulded to cultural assumptions about Indigeneity, and how the increasing demonisation of Indigenous criminality and culture in sentencing has turned earlier ‘gains’ in the legal recognition of Indigenous peoples on their head.

This book draws upon contemporary feminist philosophy in order to consider the meaning of legal personhood, its relationship to human freedom and autonomy and its connection to what is classified as public and private. Contemporary feminist philosophy has much to say about the ways in which we have understood what it means to be a person and to have rights in law. Women’s contingent and historical position can be used as a tool to highlight tensions in traditional views of personhood. However, Janice Richardson goes beyond this critique to explore how the legal and political implications of feminist critiques of legal personhood can found new ways of thinking about ourselves and law that is applicable to both men and women.

Propaganda, War Crimes Trials and International Law

Serial Killers * Francesca Biagi-Chai

Propaganda, War Crimes Trials and International Law addresses the emerging jurisprudence and international law concerning propaganda in war crimes investigations and trials. The role of propaganda in the perpetration of atrocities has emerged as a central theme in the war crimes trials in the past century. The Nuremburg trials initially, and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda currently, have all substantially contributed to the development of international law in this respect. Investigating and exploring the areas between lawful and unlawful propaganda, they have dealt with specific mechanisms and consequences of the phenomenon within the perspective and framework of their international legal mandates. With contributions from leading international scholars and legal practioners, this text offers a study of the prosecution of propaganda-related crimes in international law, and the newly emerging jurisprudence of war crimes propaganda cases.

In other words, rather than taking a structural approach, and attempting to neatly circumscribe and define ‘every’ element of Jewish law, Windows onto Jewish Legal Culture takes a dynamic and holistic approach, describing diverse manifestations of Jewish legal culture, without seeking to fit them into a single structure.

The recent increase in women’s incarceration around the world has generated significant interest in explaining this growth in numbers and identifying female offenders’ distinctive circumstance and needs. It has also prompted a re-examination of community based alternatives to custody and whether and how enhancements to existing community based services might stem the flow of women to custody. This book concentrates on the needs of women who offend, the principles that inform the development of policies on which to build expertise in working with women in the community and gender responsive practices that have been implemented. What emerges from these initiatives is a template for effective community correctional interventions for women who offend.

criminology 101 Eyes Everywhere The Global Growth of Camera Surveillance

Nordic Prison Practice and Policy – Exceptional or Not?

Edited by Aaron Doyle, Carleton University, Canada, Randy Lippert, University of Windsor, Canada and David Lyon, Queen’s University, Canada

Exploring Penal Exceptionalism in the Nordic Context

Eyes Everywhere provides an accessible and international perspective on the development of camera surveillance. It scrutinizes the quiet but massive expansion of camera surveillance around the world in recent years, paying special attention to developments in Canada, the UK and the USA. Containing both broad overviews and several illuminating case-studies – on matters such as cameras in taxi cabs or at mega-events such as the Olympics – the book offers a valuable overview on the status of camera surveillance in the second decade of the twenty-first century.

In the growing field of comparative criminal justice, the Nordic countries are regularly used as exceptions from the global move towards growing rates of imprisonment and tougher, less welfareoriented crime control policies. Written by leading prison scholars from the Nordic countries as well as selected researchers from the Anglo world ‘looking in’, this book explores and discusses the Nordic jurisdictions as contexts for the specific penal policies and practices that may or may not be described as exceptional.

Unifying several security models, the book examines COMPSTAT, Boba’s redesign of problem oriented policing, a population centric model of counterinsurgency by Nagl and Patreaus, and the integrative model of citizen involvement in crime and community well- being. It also considers a police command structure deployed according to the locations of serious crimes.

Author Peter Fleming brings fresh insights to the study of work and provides a robust schema for understanding employment as a conflictual site of exploited social labour in which workers shape the contours of the corporation.

The Evolution of Integrated Marketing Communications The Customer-driven Marketplace


Towards a New Economic Order Christopher Taylor, National Institute of Economic and Social Research, UK The book aims to give non-economists a detailed understanding of how macroeconomic policy works in modern economies, and the issues it faces. The world has recently been through a huge economic crisis and thinking people everywhere have reason to wonder whether something is not seriously wrong with the policy regimes underlying these dramatic events in the major economies, and whether changes should be made. The author reviews the history of the successive regimes tried and found wanting in the second half of the last century and proposes a set of reforms designed to convert the flawed neo-liberal consensus of the 1990s into a durable regime for the present century.

Game Theory in the Social Sciences Heterodox Macroeconomics * A Reader-friendly Guide

Keynes, Marx and globalization

Luca Lambertini, University of Bologna, Italy

Edited by Jonathan P. Goldstein, Bowdoin College, USA and Michael G. Hillard, University of Southern Maine, USA

Individuals, firms, governments and nations behave strategically, for good and bad. Over the last few decades, game theory has been constructed and progressively refined to become the major tool used by social scientists to understand, predict and regulate strategic interaction among agents who often have conflicting interests. In the surprisingly anodyne jargon of the theory, they ‘play games’. This book offers an introduction to the basic tools of game theory and an overview of a number of applications to real-world cases, covering the areas of economics, politics and international relations. Each chapter is accompanied by some suggestions about further reading.

Series: Routledge Frontiers of Political Economy The plethora of literature produced over the past decade in response to the perceived failure of the human rights project to deliver results for billions of people living in ‘adverse’ environments has usually focused on international legal standards and mechanisms, with little regard for the root structural realities that constrain their implementation. Hence, a text that primarily focuses on the major challenge of realisation of human rights in the context of diverse realities is urgently needed. This book, then, provides an analytical as well as inspirational text on human rights from a contextual perspective; it offers a reconceptualisation of human rights as not merely legal resources, but political tools as well.

Community Finance * Tackling Poverty and Social Exclusion Pamela Lenton and Paul Mosley, both at University of Sheffield, UK Series: Routledge Advances in Social Economics Although poverty in Britain is falling slowly, persistent pockets of poverty remain – particularly in inner-city areas, and amongst groups such as ethnic minorities, lone parents, the disabled, and the children of these groups. How to reduce this poverty, and do it in a cost-effective way, is a matter of intense policy debate and social concern. The book presents a detailed picture of the impact of financial measures against poverty in various cities and draws conclusions for policy. It will be required reading for all those interested in anti-poverty policy, financial markets and community development in Britain and internationally, whether as sponsors, CDFI managers, members of NGOs or researchers.

Edited by Thomas Köllner,University of Bayreuth, Germany

Dennis M.P. McCarthy, Iowa State University, USA

Series: Routledge Explorations in Environmental Economics This collection is a valuable contribution to the global change science dealing with ecosystem services. It is organized into four major parts: Part 1 gives the theoretical framework from an ecological, economic and political perspectives. Part 2 explores how internationally traded biophysical commodities from agriculture, forestry and fisheries translates into a virtual flow of land, freshwater, and marine ecosystems. Part 3 describes how two widely used accounting tools (i.e., Life Cycle Assessment and Green National Accounts) deal with international aspects of ecosystem services, and Part 4 shows how instruments like labelling, bans, or payments for ecosystem services in the private and public sector can influence trade patterns and the management of ecosystem services.

Policy Makers on Policy * The Mais Lectures Edited by Forrest Capie, City University, UK and Geoffrey Wood, Cass Business School, City University, London, UK Series: Routledge International Studies in Money and Banking Monetary policy is still one of the most contested areas of modern economics, yet since the original publication of Policy Makers on Policy much has changed. This new edition collects contributions from leading policy makers and practitioners to reflect on the aims and objectives of monetary policy and on what it can achieve, combining the old chapters from the likes of Gordon Brown, Tony Blair, Kenneth Clarke, Geoffrey Howe and Nigel Lawson with new perspectives from Mervyn King, Jean-Claude Trichet, Ernst Welteke, Otmar Issing, and Alastair Darling. A new far reaching introduction from the editors Forrest Capie and Geoffrey Wood put these important contributions to the discussion of economic policy in the new context. They look at what lessons can be learnt from these earlier discussions, what anticipations of present difficulties can be found in them and what, in other words, does the comparatively recent past teach us about how to deal with the turbulent present.

UN peacekeeping plays an important role in international security and includes various activities that go beyond the original roles assigned to UN armed forces (e.g. humanitarian aid, election supervision, disarmament, mine clearance, civilian protection, and peacebuilding). This book defines the economic efficiency of these operations and to develop some recommendations in the context of an economic globalization process.

Our thirst for water grows with our population, but the amount of fresh water available on Earth is fixed. If we assume ‘business as usual’ by 2050 about 40% of the projected global population of 9.4 billion is expected to be facing water stress or scarcity.

It addresses better governance of trade, investment and finance in Asia. Its focus in Asia is justified in light of the increasing role of the region in the global economy, and its uniqueness in development strategy, notably that of East Asia. The book also provides readers with clear and broad ideas as to what opportunities and challenges Asia is facing in the governance of trade, investment and finance in the region as well as globally. It opens the eyes of readers to the importance of coordinating governance mechanisms across the sector, namely trade, investment and finance, which has so far been almost non-existent both in academia and in practice.

The Handbook provides a comprehensive statement and reference point for hazard and disaster research, policy making, and practice in an international and multidisciplinary context. Specifically, it aims to provide critical reviews and appraisals of the current state of the art and future development of conceptual, theoretical and practical approaches as well as empirical knowledge and available tools. It aims to encourage dialogue across disciplinary barriers among notions of ‘disaster risk reduction’ and ‘vulnerability’ (central concepts within the hazards and disaster community), ‘climate change adaptation’ and ‘sustainable livelihood security’ (core notions underlying much work within the climate and environmental studies community), and ‘poverty reduction’ (which remains a pivotal rallying point within development studies).

Health issues are of growing importance in an increasingly peopled and interconnected world. A geographic approach to health offers a critical perspective to these issues, considering not only disease distributions but also how changing relationships between people and their environments influence human health. This textbook introduces undergraduate and lower-level graduate students to this rapidly-growing field. The text is designed to be used as the backbone of a health geography course, covering relevant theoretical and methodological background, combined with case studies that exemplify the issues covered and encourage students to apply what they have learned. The text is divided into three sections: the first section introduce ecological approaches, the second discusses social aspects of health and healthcare, and the third section integrates these themes and considers the geographic techniques and approaches appropriate for exploring these ideas.

Making Maps


A Visual Guide to Map Design for GIS

The Claiming of Space

John Krygier, Ohio Wesleyan University, USA and Denis Wood, Raleigh, North Carolina, USA

David Storey, University of Worcester, UK

Acclaimed for its innovative use of visual material, this book is engaging, clear, and compelling – exactly how an effective map should be. Nearly every page is organized around maps and other figures (many in full color) that illustrate all aspects of map making, including instructive examples of both good and poor design choices. The book covers everything from locating and processing data to making decisions about layout, symbols, color, and type. Readers are invited to think critically about both the technical features and social significance of maps as they learn to create better maps of their own. New to this edition: extensively revised and expanded core chapters on map design; an annotated map design exemplar is used to show how the concepts in each chapter play out on an actual map; updated to reflect current technological developments; and larger size and redesigned pages make the book even more user friendly.

This extensively revised and updated second edition continues to provide an introduction to theories of territoriality and the outcomes of territorial control and resistance. It explores the construction of territories and the conflicts which often result using a range of examples drawn from various spatial scales and from many different countries. It ranges in coverage from conflicts over national territory to divisions of space based around class, gender and race. While retaining the key elements of the first edition this new edition covers contemporary debates on nationalism, territorialisation, globalization and borders. It updates the factual content to explore the territorial consequences of ‘9/11’, the ‘war on terror’, the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. It also examines migration, refugees, the territorial expansion of the European Union, and territorial divisions in the home and workplace. Each chapter contains boxed case studies, illustrations and guides to further reading.

Spatial Regulation in New York City

Edited by Julie Wilson, University of the West of England, UK

Themis Chronopoulos

Series: Advances in Tourism

This book explores and critiques the process of spatial regulation in post-war New York, focusing on the period after the fiscal crisis of the 1970s, examining the ideological underpinnings and practical applications of urban renewal, exclusionary zoning, anti-vagrancy laws, and order-maintenance policing. It argues that these practices were part of a class project that deflected attention from the underlying causes of poverty, eroded civil rights, and sought to enable real estate investment, high-end consumption, mainstream tourism, and corporate success.

This book provides an overview of geoinformatics and current trends. It discusses airborne laser scanning in geomorphic mapping and groundwater exploration and management. Other topics discussed include shoreline changes and coastal zone management, micromorphological changes in tsunami-effected areas, desert environmental mapping, and geoinformatics in neotectonism. The self-contained chapters begin with basic aspects, follow with geoinformatics application, and finish with relevant case studies. Figures, photographs, tables, and equations are included.

From Urban Renewal to Zero Tolerance

Following an increase in attention to lifestyle-related mobility and the use, creation and representation of space and place, the geographical analysis of tourism activity is being advanced. New Perspectives in Tourism Geography seeks to examine recent developments by providing a state of the art review and evaluation of different perspectives, themes and regional differences. This volume considers disciplinary changes in geography in the context of tourism, in particular, culture and space in terms of encounter, embodiment, [inter]subjectivities, lifestyle and identity, as well as the spatial turn in social sciences more generally. It also looks at how other approaches such as critical, feminist, Marxist, behaviouralist has diversified research in the tourism geographies field. In addition it highlights areas for further research and maps out the dimensions of future advances in the field in different disciplinary, regional and thematic contexts.

David Airey, University of Surrey, UK and King Chong, Hong Kong Public Administration Association (HKPAA), China Series: Contemporary Geographies of Leisure, Tourism and Mobility

Real Tourism Representation, Practice and the ‘Material’ in Contemporary Travel Culture Edited by Claudio Minca, Royal Holloway University of London, UK and Tim Oakes, University of Colorado at Boulder, USA Series: Contemporary Geographies of Leisure, Tourism and Mobility Over the past decade tourism studies has broken out of its traditional institutional affiliation with business and management programs to take its legitimate place as an interdisciplinary social science field of cutting edge scholarship. There is a need for the field to come to terms theoretically with the contemporary and future realities of tourism as a truly global phenomenon. This significant volume seeks to set the theoretical agenda, engaging directly with what tourism does in practice and in place and demonstrate the need for a theoretical intervention that moves tourism scholarship beyond the province of Anglophone thinking. The volume achieves this by explicitly bridging ‘western’ and ‘non-western’ scholarship on tourism; reframing theoretical discussions around ‘real practices’ instead of abstract typologies; and radically delinking tourism theory from the grand narratives of modernity and assumptions about authenticity, identity, tradition, and development.

This is the first book to set the development of tourism in China since 1949 in its policy context. Underpinned by a strong conceptual framework, this systematic study of China contributes to an in-depth understanding of how public policymaking for tourism works and how it affects the development of tourism in the real world. The text explores tourism policy during three distinct leadership periods since creation of the People’s Republic of China in 1949. The attitudes and values of leaders and central government agencies towards tourism are considered, as well as the interactions of ideological orthodoxies, socioeconomic conditions and institutions in their influence on national policy-making and tourism development. A separate chapter is devoted to policy-making in Hong Kong and Macau, as well as Taiwan. Drawing on China’s experience over 60 years the book concludes with both theoretical and practical implications for tourism policy-making.

Being Alive Essays on Movement, Knowledge and Description Tim Ingold, University of Aberdeen, UK Building on his classic work The Perception of the Environment, Tim Ingold sets out to restore life to where it should belong, at the heart of anthropological concern. Being Alive ranges over such themes as the vitality of materials, what it means to make things, the perception and formation of the ground, the mingling of earth and sky in the weather-world, the experiences of light, sound and feeling, the role of storytelling in the integration of knowledge, and the potential of drawing to unite observation and description. Our humanity, Ingold argues, does not come ready-made but is continually fashioned in our movements along ways of life. Starting from the idea of life as a process of wayfaring, Ingold presents a radically new understanding of movement, knowledge and description as dimensions not just of being in the world, but of being alive to what is going on there.

Tim Ingold revolutionises the way we think about what is ‘biological’ and ‘cultural’ in humans, about evolution and history, and indeed about what it means for human beings – at once organisms and persons – to inhabit an environment.

Using examples from the first celebrity fan magazines of 1911 to the present, Celebrity Culture and the American Dream considers how major economic and historical factors shaped the nature of celebrity culture as we know it today. Equally important, the book explains how and why the story of Hollywood celebrities matters, sociologically speaking, to an understanding of American society, to the changing nature of the American Dream, and to the relation between class and culture. This book: explores the relationship between celebrity culture, consumption, class, and social mobility; discusses social changes pertaining to class, gender, marriage and divorce, and race; includes numerous pictures from fan magazine articles and ads; examines the connections between celebrity culture and economic, political, and social changes; and considers the importance of the structure of the entertainment industry to understand how celebrity culture is manufactured.

Ethnic, Religious and National Conflicts in Today’s World

Studies in Criminology and Criminal Justice

Dan Chirot, University of Washington

Edited by Leslie W. Kennedy, Rutgers University, USA and Edmund F. McGarrell, Michigan State University, USA

This book analyzes widespread global ethnic conflicts that tear asunder nations and regions, such as the former Yugoslavia. Dan Chirot casts his analysis in a discussion of the conflict between national and ethnic identity, discovering that ethnic identity, rooted in centuries of tradition and habit, often trumps national identity, which may be of more recent gestation and have a weaker hold on people. His analysis affords insights into the recent aggressive U.S. posture on ‘nation building,’ showing the blindness of this approach to deeply-entrenched ethnic identities. His timely book can be used in classes on globalization, international development, political sociology, social movements, and theory.

Each chapter describes a particular theory by telling the tale of a delinquent youth and thoroughly reviewing the theories and research designed to explain the youth’s delinquent behavior. By linking the theories to a real-world example, they may be ‘brought to life’ and made more relevant to the reader.

Empire Versus Democracy

Experiencing Criminal Justice

The Triumph of Corporate and Military Power

Practitioners’ and Outsiders’ Perspectives of Policing, Courts, and Corrections

Series: Framing 21st Century Social Issues In Empire Versus Democracy, Carl Boggs traces the authoritarian trajectory of American politics since World War II, with emphasis on the growing concentration of corporate and military power that has accompanied the United States assumption of leading superpower on the world scene. The rise of the U.S. as unchallenged imperial nation has meant the steady expansion of a permanent war economy and security state that, working in tandem with large business interests, has led to proliferation of American armed-forces bases around the world, recurrent military interventions, swollen government bureaucracy, massive public expenditures, heavy reliance on surveillance and secrecy, and diminished resources for social infrastructure and social programs. Boggs shows that, as in the case of the Roman and other previous empires, enlargement of U.S. imperial power has resulted in a decline of civic engagement and local participation along with skewed priorities favoring the war economy and security state. Inevitably, this has meant a weakening of electoral and legislative politics, overwhelmed by the centers of enormous wealth and power.

Online Gaming in Context


The Social and Cultural Significance of Online Games

Reconfigurations of the Social and Natural Sciences

Garry Crawford and Victoria K Gosling, University of Salford, UK

Edited by Andrew Barry and Georgina Born The book presents a series of empirical, historical and theoretical studies that interrogate the unity, diversity and novelty of interdisciplinary research that cut across the boundaries between the natural sciences and engineering and the social sciences, arts and humanities.

Online Gaming in Context provides a key and accessible introduction to the study of digital gaming, and is the first book to explicitly and comprehensively address how digital games are experienced and engaged with in the everyday lives, social networks and consumer patterns of gamers.

It shows that interdisciplinary research involving social scientists and/or artists as well as scientists contributes to the democratisation of expertise and that interdisciplinary research can also contribute to transforming the objects and relations of research.

France Winddance Twine, University of California, Santa Barbara A quiet revolution has been taking place during the past three decades. The way that children enter families has changed radically among upper middle class families. In the 1980s infertility increasing became defined as a medical problem that could be solved with assisted reproductive technologies (ART) rather than through adoption. Asexual or ‘assisted conception’ involving medical technologies such as in vitro fertilization and embryo transfers began to replace sexual reproduction for infertile couples. Third parties, referred to as surrogates are hired to assist individuals and/or couples who wish to conceive and child with whom they share a genetic tie. This has resulted in a ‘surrogate baby boom’. This book provides a critical introduction to the global surrogacy market. A comparative analysis of the assisted reproductive technology and surrogacy industry in Egypt, Israel, India and the United States disentangles the intersecting roles of race, religion, class inequality, religious law, and global capitalism. Gestational surrogacy challenges the idea of ‘natural’ reproduction and of the meaning of parenthood. What role should the state play in providing individuals and families with access to reproductive technologies? This book concludes with a discussion of ‘reproductive justice’. for e-mail updates in your field

Philosophy of Money

Race, Racism, and Crime

Georg Simmel

A Theory of African American Offending

Edited by David Frisby, London School of Economics, UK Foreword by Charles Lemert, Welseyan University, USA

James D. Unnever, University of South Florida, Sarasota, USA and Shaun L. Gabbidon, Pennsylvania State Capital College, USA

Translated by Tom Bottomore, London School of Economics, UK

Series: Criminology and Justice Studies

Series: Routledge Classics

A little more than a century ago, the famous social scientist W.E.B. Dubois asserted that a true understanding of African American offending must be grounded in the ‘real conditions’ of what it means to be black living in a racial stratified society. Today and according to official statistics, African American men – about 6 percent of the population of the United States – account for nearly 60 percent of the armed robbery arrests in the United States. To the authors of this book, this and many other glaring racial disparities in offending centered on African Americans is clearly related to their unique history and to their past and present racial subordination. Inexplicably, however, no criminological theory exists that fully articulates the nuances of the African American experience and how they relate to their offending. In readable fashion for undergraduate students, the general public, and criminologists alike, this book for the first time presents the foundations for the development of an African American theory of offending.

In The Philosophy of Money, Georg Simmel provides us with a now classic discussion of the social, psychological and philosophical aspects of the money economy, full of brilliant insights into the forms that social relationships take. He analyzes the relationships of money to exchange, human personality, the position of women, and individual freedom as well as brilliant insights into the consequences of the modern money economy and the division of labour, in particular the processes of alienation and reification in work and urban life.

Rapid Climate Change Causes, Consequences, and Solutions Scott G. McNall, California State University, Chico Series: Framing 21st Century Social Issues The book reviews the science of climate change and explains why it is one of the most difficult problems humanity has ever tackled. Climate change is a ‘wicked’ problem bound up with problems of population growth, environmental degradation, and world problems of growing social and economic inequality. The book explores the politicization of the topic, the polarization of opinion, and the reasons why, for some, science has become just another ideology to be contested. How do humans assess risk? Why are they are so bad at focusing on the future? How can we solve the problem of climate change? These are the questions this work answers.

The Future of Higher Education

The Problem of Emotions in Societies

Dan Clawson and Max Page, both at University of Massachusetts, USA

Jonathan Turner, University of California, Riverside, USA

Series: Framing 21st Century Social Issues Higher education is more important than ever, for individual success and for national economic growth. And yet higher education in the United States is in crisis: public funding has been in free fall; tuition has skyrocketed making colleges and universities less accessible; basic structures such as tenure are under assault. The Future of Higher Education analyzes the crisis in higher education, describing how a dominant neo-liberal political ideology has significantly changed the U.S. system of higher education. The book examines the contemporary landscape of higher education institutions and asks and answers these questions: Who is able to attend college? Who pays for our system of higher education? Who works at and who governs colleges and universities? The book concludes with a plan for radically revitalizing higher education in the United States.

Like any other valued resource, emotions are distributed unequally. Moreover, emotions are a generalized resource because they give people the confidence, or lack of confidence, to secure additional types of resources. Thus, this distribution of emotions roughly corresponds to the shares of others kinds of resources that members of various social classes possess. The level of positive and negative emotional energy evident among members of different social classes has large consequences for the viability of human societies. When a large majority of members in diverse social classes have reservoirs of positive emotional energy, these emotions work to legitimate macrostructures and to build people’s commitments to societies. When, however, significant numbers of persons in lower social classes, and at times in middle to upper social classes as well, reveal reservoirs of negative emotional energy, they are likely to de-legitimate key institutional systems and, under specifiable conditions, mobilize collective – often with violent outcomes. Thus, emotions are at the core of both integrative and disintegrative forces in societies, and when large reservoirs of negative emotional energy exist, they pose a problem for societies.

The Stupidity Epidemic

Towards a Critical Sociology

Worrying About Students, Schools, and America’s Future

An Essay on Commonsense and Imagination

Joel Best, University of Delaware, USA

Zygmunt Bauman

Series: Framing 21st Century Social Issues

For the better part of its history sociology shared with commonsense its assumption of the ‘nature-like’ character of society – and consequently developed as the science of unfreedom. In this powerful and engaging work, first published in 1976, Professor Bauman outlines the historical roots of such a science and describes how the new trends in sociology emerging from phenomenology and existentialism do not challenge this preoccupation. Rather, he claims, they deepen and extend it by stressing the key role of commonsense, particularly the ways in which it is sustained and embedded in the routines and assumptions of everyday life.

Critics often warn that American schools are failing, and that our students are ill-prepared for the challenges the future holds, and may even be ‘the dumbest generation.’ We can think of these claims as warning about a Stupidity Epidemic. This essay begins by tracing the history of the idea of that American students, teachers, and schools are somehow getting worse; the record shows that critics have been issuing such warnings for more than 150 years. It then examines four sets of data that speak to whether educational deterioration is taking place. First, data on educational attainment show a clear trend: more students are getting more education. Second, standardized test scores suggest that American students are performing somewhat better; certainly most test scores do not indicate that students are getting worse. Third, measures of popular knowledge also show evidence of improvement. Fourth, there is clear evidence that IQ scores have been rising. In other words, the best available evidence fails to support claims about a Stupidity Epidemic. The essay then turns to exploring several reasons why belief in educational decline is so common, and concludes by suggesting some more useful ways to think about educational problems.

There are roughly 45 million Latina(o) people living in the United States today and immigration scholars agree that the population of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. is around 12 million today, many of whom are of Hispanic origin. Immigration scholars also agree that a major unanswered question for the future of U.S. society is how well the children of these population groups will ‘make it’ in the educational system and therefore begin to move up the socio-economic ladder. Will their ‘achievement’ in the educational system parallel the experience and success of other immigrant groups of generations past? Or will many of these children experience much higher drop-out rates and if so, with what consequences? And are there policy options to prevent this from happening?

Waste and Consumption

Why Nations Go to War

Capitalism, the Environment, and the Life of Things

A Sociology of Military Conflict

Simonetta Falasca-Zamponi, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA

Mark P. Worrell, State University of New York, Cortland, USA

Series: Framing 21st Century Social Issues

The United States has been involved in many wars, sometimes for noble causes like defeating Nazism, and, at other times, it has compromised its own ideals, leading to a lot of soul searching and regrets. Some wars are celebrated as glorious achievements (World War II), some are ‘forgotten’ (Korea), and some are ‘ignored’ (Afghanistan). The current wars in the Middle East represent a complex interplay of motivations, challenges, and threats to America’s role as the world’s democratic leadership. In the case of Afghanistan, we find that during the Cold War the US defense and intelligence apparatus directly and indirectly created an incalculable number of radical extremists that have now turned their sights on their former benefactor. The invasion of Iraq represents a different calculus: under the multitude of rationalizations rests a simple political-economic case of a master nation punishing a disobedient subject. In this brief book, America’s relationship with war is explored with an eye toward changes in capitalism from industrialism to post-industrialism, America’s involvement in the Cold War, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, torture, culture, and ideology.

Series: Framing 21st Century Social Issues

This book belongs to a cluster of books on environment and sustainability, including a book by Scott McNall on climate change and a future book by Timothy W. Luke on sustainability. The author argues that much of the literature on environmentalism has focused on issues of overproduction and has ignored consumption, especially wasteful consumption. She remedies that in her treatment, which draws attention to the environmental, cultural and personal implications of waste. Her discussion of personal responsibilities for consumption will appeal to students who seek to locate themselves in a global social structure. This timely book can be used in introductory sociology, social problems, and classes on environment and sustainability.

Transforming Scholarship: Why Women’s and Gender Studies Students Are Changing Themselves and the World Michele Tracy Berger, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA and Cheryl Radeloff, Minnesota State University, USA Series: Contemporary Sociological Perspectives Transforming Scholarship is a user friendly guide of practical guidance and inspiration for supporting a student’s interest in a Women’s Studies degree. It focuses on three of the major barriers students face when exploring Women’s Studies. The first is a lack of awareness that Women’s Studies constitutes an academic field. The second barrier is the negative response a student often faces when announcing to the world that he or she is interested in Women’s Studies. The third barrier regards the perceived lack of employment and career options of graduating with a Women’s Studies degree.

Living Through Terror Edited by Suvendrini Perera and Antonio Traverso, Curtin University of Technology, Australia In the era of war on terror, the term terror has tended to be applied to its sudden eruptions in the metropolises of the global north. This volume directs its attention to terror’s manifestations in other locations and lives. The contributions consider terror’s effects in ignored and silenced locations where terror is either naturalised (the Philippines, South Africa, Timor Leste, Sri Lanka) or made invisibile (the neo-liberal democracies of Australia and Italy). Living through terror is not a state of unrelieved despair, passivity or helplessness but is frequently a process of active engagement, creating and desiring. Including, poetry, visual art, fiction and critical writing, the volume demonstrates that theorising, storying, building and resignifying are all necessary acts of agency undertaken by subjects in societies of terror. This book was published as a special issue of Social Identities.

The notion of ‘Web 2.0’, social software, and social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and MySpace have emerged in this context. With such platforms comes the massive provision and storage of personal data that are systematically evaluated, marketed, and used for targeting users with advertising. In a world of global economic competition, economic crisis, and fear of terrorism after 9/11, both corporations and state institutions have a growing interest in accessing this personal data. The contributions in this book provide a comprehensive look at issues that are redefining our entire concept of privacy and surveillance.

The Limits of Gendered Citizenship Contexts and Complexities Edited by Elzbieta H. Oleksy, University of Lûdz, Poland, Jeff Hearn, Linköping University, Sweden and Dorota Golanska, University of Lodz, Poland Series: Routledge Advances in Feminist Studies and Intersectionality This collection responds to the need to re-evaluate the very important concept of citizenship in light of recent feminist debates. In contrast to the dominant universalizing concepts of citizenship, the volume argues that citizenship should be theorized on many different levels and in reference to diverse public and private contexts and experiences. The book seeks to demonstrate that the concept of citizenship needs to be understood from a gendered intersectional perspective and argues that though it is often constructed in a universal way, it is not possible to interpret and indeed understand citizenship without situating it within a specific political, legal, cultural, social, and historical context. for e-mail updates in your field

The Scientific, Clinical and Commercial Development of the Stem Cell *

Edited by Jacqueline Broerse, VU University Amsterdam, the Netherlands and John Grin, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands Series: Routledge Studies in Sustainability Transitions Over the past decades, a series of reform initiatives have been going through health systems of advanced welfare states, including the control of cost development, the tenability of health systems in globalizing economies, dissatisfaction about quality of treatment or quality of life, and the increasing importance of health problems related to lifestyles and life conditions. The reforms pursued to address these problems have led to rather fundamental changes in health systems, but not a true resolution of the persistent problems facing healthcare. This book seeks to investigate how we may understand current problems in health systems from the perspective of notions from transition and system innovation studies. Based on that understanding, what strategies, developed in other domains for bringing about transitions and system innovations, may contribute to further reforms of health systems?

Coping and Emotion in Sport Edited by Joanne Thatcher, Aberystwyth University, UK, Marc Jones, Staffordshire University, UK and David Lavallee, Aberystwyth University, UK The emotional highs and lows of competitive sport, whether experienced as a competitor, spectator or coach may be the essential ingredient that gives sport its universal and compelling appeal. Emotion is clearly a pervasive force within competitive sport, and this is reflected in the burgeoning interest over recent decades in athletes’ emotions and strategies for coping with these emotions. The interplay between emotion and coping is a critical factor in determining, through its influence on key psychological functions, an athlete’s potential success in competitive sport. This fully revised and updated edition of the classic text on coping and emotion in sport goes further than any other book in examining the central role that these two factors play in sports performance.

Disorganized Attachment and Caregiving Edited by Judith Solomon, Bridgeport Hospital, Connecticut, USA and Carol C. George, Mills College, California, USA From leading authorities, this volume provides a state-of-the-art examination of disorganized attachment: what it is, how it can be identified, and its links to behavioral problems and psychological difficulties in childhood and beyond. The editors offer a fresh perspective on disorganized attachment, not as a characteristic of the infant or child but as the product of a dysregulated and disorganized parent-child relationship. They present cutting-edge research and exemplary treatment approaches. With attention to the subjective experiences of both mothers and children, the book shows how focusing on the caregiving system can advance research and clinical practice.
