Available Now. Book Description: The emphasis upon difference, plurality and multiculturalism has led to an outpouring of information that has been interpreted by theories such as pragmatism, communitarianism, feminism, postmodern discourse and liberation ethics. Having the conception of communication in discourse theory as point of departure, scholars of distinct philosophical backgrounds move in and out of different contexts to offer a first-hand and in-depth account of the above positions in their dialogue with discourse theory, by establishing a web. This book seeks to show that pluralism and multiculturalism are to be found with philosophy itself. Size: 2.5 x 16.5 x 22.9 cm. 260 pages. Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 5.

292 Pages. Back board is slightly marked. This work is intended to serve not only as an expression of a new idea of a philosophy, but as an "apologia" for philosophy as a legitimate and independent discipline in its own right. It argues that in the 20th century, truth has not been abandoned, but merely modified. The text proposes a return to truth and suggests that it is only after apprehending the truths of consciousness that the philosopher's mirror may become a kaleidoscope through which reality may be contemplated. First order truth lies in the realm of discovery, and discovery takes place only within the moment of subjective re-enactment.

Available Now. Book Description: This text aims to develop an original account of social justice using neo-Aristotelian value theory. At the heart of the book is an account of the human good in which human interests are divided into three main categories: the basal interests; the eudaimonian interests; and the interests in subjectivity. Subsequently, distributive goods, which distributive principles are to apply to, are divided into three main spheres: the basal sphere; the eudaimonian sphere; and the sphere of subjectivity. While the overall orientation of the project is egalitarian, different distributive principles are applied in each of the three spheres, with the intention ultimately of realizing the egalitarian ideal.

2009 1403997187 / 9781403997180 First Edition Softcover Very Good Condition 15.5 x 1 x 23.6 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: The culture that infiltrates our lives can provoke a range of feelings and afflictions - culture can move you, get under your skin and stir up your emotions. Ben Highmore uses these feelings, or 'passions', to explore the culture that surrounds us and uses it as a basis to introduce and explain the key ideas, debates and theories that are central to cultural studies.: Impressively accessible and packed with absorbing examples from everyday life, this compact book is the ideal entry-point into cultural studies. The chapters examine problematic and complex issues that are core to cultural studies, looking at the experience of migration, the nature of the media, the lure of commodities, the world of taste and the culture of love. Cleverly written in a way that's easy to follow and enjoyable to read, the text gives a sense of the discipline as a way of thinking rather than an amalgamation of theories, and whets the appetite of all those interested in cultural studies.: Whether you're a student who's new to the field, or a seasoned scholar seeking a fresh idea about what cultural studies can do, this clear and concise text encourages you to become truly passionate about cultural studies.: Review: 'Ben Highmore has written the book that students and teachers of cultural studies have long been waiting for. The text intervenes convincingly into some entrenched and ongoing debates and disputes, and in doing so offers a lot more than a mere introduction. It offers a way to make sense of culture that is at once compelling, eminently reliable, persuasive and authoritative. A Passion for Cultural Studies is an exceptional text.' - Paul Bowman, Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies, Cardiff University: 'Modest in scope, persistent in pursuit of its topic, even avowedly personal and sentimental at times, this short book promises to be a long player: it will spark students' engagement in the animating debates and questions of cultural studies. In short: A Passion for Cultural Studies delivers on the promise of its title.' - Richard Stamp, Senior Lecturer of Media and Cultural Studies, Bath Spa University: 'The engaging quality of this text is in no small part due to the supple and resourceful way that Highmore reinvents the concept of 'passion', tearing it away from its poly-saturated use within commodity advertising, and casting it as the touchstone for a global debate about how and why we care about what we care about. For those who care about the contemporary fate of Cultural Studies, this is a text that demands attention.' - John Mowitt, Professor of Cultural Studies, University of Minnesota: Book Description: Whether new to the field or looking for a refresher, this book invites a passionate reading of cultural studies as it introduces and explains concepts, theories and issues Size: 15.5 x 1 x 23.6 cm. 176 pages.

2005 1403917159 / 9781403917157 Softcover Very Good Condition 14 x 1.7 x 21.6 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: We are living at a conjuncture of change and transition. Institutions of modernity, such as the United Nations system, are experiencing difficulties coping with symptoms of postmodernity. What is clear is that the challenges facing the world body are both epiphenomenal and structural. Unless this organization adapts to meet them, there is little hope of it becoming a relevant governance body in this millennium. Already we are witnessing signs that the United Nations is being bypassed as a meaningful contributor to global, regional and local problem-solving (witness Kosovo and more recently the war in Iraq) and is not adequately equipped to deal with the expanded global security problems. While the contributions here are committed to multilateral solutions, they stand outside traditional views on the United Nations in order to grapple with the lessons learned from the organizations experiences, failures and modest successes. : Review: '[A] well-balanced and informed collection of essays on the work and institutional structure of the United Nations. The book is well organized, with a theoretical component exploring institutional change based on the experience of the United Nations in more than five decades since its founding. many of those contributing to the study have been part of the work of the United Nations...[This] combination of insights and theoretical framework provides a thoughtful and important analysis for both the academic and the practitioner.' - Charlotte Ku, Executive Director of the American Society of International Law: '...a valuable source of critique, ideas and recommendations for change in the United Nations system...Its practical focus on the lessons that should be learned from recent United Nations activities makes it required reading for those involved or interested in the organization.' - Linda Reif, Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Alberta : About the Author: W. ANDY KNIGHT is Professor of International Relations in the Department of Political Science at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada. He is the Editor of the journal Global Governance: A Review of Multilateralism and International Organizations.

Aesthetic Values, Pawlowski, T.

Aesthetic Values
UK Springer
1989 0792304187 / 9780792304180 First Edition Hardcover New No Dust Jacket 15.6 x 1 x 23.4 cm 
140 Pages. NEW. All the problems in the book are discussed and commented upon from a uniform viewpoint: the author's own vision of aesthetic value. Panaestheticism, objectivism, pluralism, and an empirical approach to the problem of value are the main features of the conception. Book Description: What is aesthetic value? A property in an object? An experience of a perceiving person? An ideal object existing in a mysterious sphere, inaccessible to normal cognition? Does it appear in one form only, or in many forms, perhaps infinitely many? Is it something constant, immutable, or rather something susceptible to change, depending on the individual, the cultural milieu, or the epoch? Is a rational defence of aesthetic value judgements possible, or is any discussion of this topic meaningless? The above questions arise out of the most complicated philosophic problems. Volumes have been written on each of them. The discussions which continue over the centuries, the plurality of views and suggested solutions, indicate that all issues are controversial and contestable. Each view can adduce some arguments supporting it; each has some weaknesses. Another source of difficulty is the vagueness and ambiguity of the language in which the problems are discussed. This makes it hard to understand the ideas of particular thinkers and sometimes makes it impossible to decide whether different formulations express the actual divergence of views or only the verbal preferences of their authors. Let us add that this imperfection does not simply spring from inaccuracy on the part of scholars, but also results from the complexity of the problems themselves. The matter is further complicated by important factors of a social character. Size: 15.6 x 1 x 23.4 cm. 152 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Politics & Government; ISBN: 0792304187.

2002 0742513912 / 9780742513914 First Edition Softcover Very Good Condition 15.1 x 1.2 x 22.5 cm 
Available Now. Book Description: Imagine Immanuel Kant discussing art with bell hooks and Cornel West. Or Friedrich Nietzsche hanging around at a blues club. In Aesthetics Across the Color Line, James Winchester brings the western philosophical tradition into dialog with contemporary African-American thinkers in an attempt to bridge (or at least understand) the culture gap in aesthetic judgments. In this unique study, James Winchester urges philosophers to reexamine traditional aesthetic theory in light of recent writings by prominent African-American thinkers. Winchester focuses on the black-white cultural divide in the United States, but his theories also help frame the way we think about all cross-cultural aesthetic judgments. It is high time this book appeared in this age of multiculturalism. : Review: With impressive ease and grace, Winchester guides us through the bold and subtle theories of Kant, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Derrida, and Adorno in search of clues for understanding the art of the oppressed. From a brilliant weave of art and theory comes a highly persuasive conclusion that is neither modern nor postmodern: Art gives us a glimpse, however incomplete, into the world of others. -- Cynthia Willett, Emory University Winchester's book tackles a difficult and timely subject-cultural diversity in the evaluation of art, especially in the context of contemporary America. To do so he draws on a wide range of classical and recent aesthetic theories and offers a wealth of examples. His book is as diverse and wide-ranging as its topic, but it is guided by a steady theoretical hand throughout. -- David Carr, Emory University This is an adventurous critical encounter between Continental philosophical aesthetics and some key works from 20th-century black Americans. CHOICE Aesthetics Across the Color Line poses an important and timely question: the question of aesthetic judgements across cultural borders. James Winchester addresses it in original ways. I recommend this book to anyone interested in the intersection of art and politics in the contemporary world. -- Robert Bernasconi, Pennsylvania State University : About the Author: James Winchester is assistant professor of philosophy at Georgia College and State University.

"144 Pages. Drawing together contributions from academics based in Africa and its diaspora, this work is unique in considering the situation and status of Africans globally. It explores a broad range of contemporary issues - from development and culture to linguistics - within the socio-political framework of Africa in the 21st century. The poor economic performance of some African countries since independence has been a major concern to both African leaders and policy makers. This volume situates Africa within its historic and socio-political background: from the 1960s, the decade of independence, through to its development outlook as the new millennium unfolds. Whilst analyzing recent economic, cultural and political changes within Africa, and globally, the contributors identify and examine issues that are common both to Africa and the diaspora."

It examines a broad range of contemporary issues -- from development and culture to linguistics and is unique in identifying and examining issues that are common both to Africa and the diaspora. : Review: 'This challenging book calls for a fresh perspective on Africa in its interrelations with the African diaspora, combining development studies and political economy with post-colonial theory. It invites us to reconsider the nature of African modernity and the African future. Varied and wide-ranging, the contributions to the book will stimulate debate both in the classroom and outside it.' Professor Karin Barber, Centre of West African Studies, University of Birmingham, UK 'An extremely stimulating and readable book, sprinkled with claims and explanations old, new, and controversial. A graceful and refreshing contribution to the exploration of African forms of confronting and inhabiting the world at large.' Achille Mbembe, author of On the Postcolony : About the Author: Dr Ola Uduku is a Lecturer in Architecture for the Department of Architecture at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, and Professor Tunde Zack-Williams is Professor of Sociology within the Department of Education & Social Science at the University of Central Lancashire.

America's Uneven Democracy: Race, Turnout, and Representation in City Politics, Hajnal, Zoltan L.

America's Uneven Democracy: Race, Turnout, and Representation in City Politics
UK Cambridge University Press
2009 0521190347 / 9780521190343 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket 15.2 x 2.3 x 22.8 cm 
354 Pages. Although there is a widespread belief that uneven voter turnout leads to biased outcomes in American democracy, existing empirical tests have found few effects. By offering a systematic account of how and where turnout matters in local politics, this book challenges much of what we know about turnout in America today. It demonstrates that low and uneven turnout, a factor at play in most American cities, leads to sub-optimal outcomes for racial and ethnic minorities. Low turnout results in losses in mayoral elections, less equitable racial and ethnic representation on city councils, and skewed spending policies. The importance of turnout confirms long held suspicions about the under-representation of minorities and raises normative concerns about local democracy. Fortunately, this book offers a solution. Analysis of local participation indicates that a small change to local election timing - a reform that is cost effective and relatively easy to enact - could dramatically expand local voter turnout.

Analysis of local participation indicates that a small change to local election timing - a reform that is cost effective and relatively easy to enact - could dramatically expand local voter turnout. : Review: 'This book mines some scholarly terrain that is, to our collective shame, most often ignored. And in this case, I'm convinced that Hajnal has struck gold. He challenges the conventional academic wisdom that varying levels of turnout in elections and, in particular, the 'problem' of low voter turnout isn't much of a problem at all. This conventional wisdom, he argues, misses a very important arena where turnout ought to matter: local elections. The differences between voters and non-voters not in preferences but in their racial and economic makeups should matter most at the local level, in part because the racial makeup of the electorate in most cities is more heterogeneous than the country as a whole, and also because turnout is typically lower in local elections. In fact, as Hajnal demonstrates clearly, local electorates are skewed in favor of the white, the well-educated, and the wealthy.' Paul Kellstedt, Texas A & M University: 'Does turnout matter? In what's sure to be considered a model of social science research, Hajnal seamlessly weds the positive to the normative, illustrating that turn out does matter, and why it does so. With lucid prose and the use of simulations, Hajnal makes compelling the counterfactual case that more evenly distributed turn out across race would result in strikingly different electoral outcomes in key cities where minority candidates may have ultimately prevailed. With more sympathetic, and therefore more effective representation, he argues, chronically underserved members of racial minority groups will benefit. America's Uneven Democracy is a must read for students of race, representation, and urban politics. This book will become a classic.' Christopher Parker, University of Washington: 'Hajnal offers a refreshing look at municipal elections and draws significant attention to how turnout effects electoral outcomes and subsequent government policies. The volume offers new empirical evidence for why generalizations about elections drawn from national studies may not be applicable to local elections.' Robert M. Stein, Rice University: 'This is a ground-breaking analysis of how uneven turnout alters the balance of power in local politics. Zoltan Hajnal rigorously and comprehensively illustrates the myriad ways in which the relatively low turnout of racial minorities hinders their representation in the political sphere. In so doing, he provides a stern warning to those who feel that racial minorities are well represented in the age of Obama, as well as an important corrective to those that say that turnout does not matter in America.' Paul Frymer, Princeton University : Book Description: By offering a systematic account of how and where voter turnout matters in local politics, this book confirms long held suspicions about the under-representation of minorities and proposes a practical and cost-effective solution to the problem.

American Global Strategy and the 'War on Terrorism', Gardner, Professor Hall

American Global Strategy and the 'War on Terrorism'
UK Ashgate Publishing Limited
2005 0754645126 / 9780754645122 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition Fine 1.9 x 15.9 x 23.5 cm 
Contemporary international events, and indeed even the US presidential election, demonstrate the continuing need for debate and discourse over the direction and emphases of US foreign policy. American Global Strategy and the War on Terrorism, addresses a wide range of themes that are crucial to understanding the post-11 September, 2001 crisis and to formulating an effective American and global foreign and security policy to deal with that crisis. Hall Gardner seeks to re-conceptualize the 'war on terrorism' and to analyze the nature of American domestic and international policy-making within the context of historical and structural constraints upon US policy. The book contends that US strategy needs to shift gears and work more diligently to minimize the risks of even wider regional conflicts, possibly involving major powers, through engaging in truly multilateral strategies and through 'strengthening' the UN. This study should be read by contemporary policy makers and scholars of foreign policy.

This study should be read by contemporary policy makers and scholars of foreign policy. : Review: '...the book provides an interesting and informative analysis of strategic decisions made by the US in the period after the Second World War, for which Gardner should be commended.' Political Studies Review Reviews of the hardback edition: 'A truly remarkable book. Few if any other volumes provide such an encompassing overview of the most troubling issues that the world faces in the wake of the Cold War's end and the 2001 attack on the United States homeland. Neither neo-realist nor neo-con, just straightforward, powerful analysis.' Amitai Etzioni, author of From Empire to Community: A New Approach to International Relations 'A provocative and scholarly book that deserves a wide audience...No reader will find it possible to agree with every point argued forcefully by the author, but will not fail to gain...from the author's insights.' Simon Serfaty, Center for Strategic & International Studies, USA 'In his latest book...Gardner sketches the outlines of a new world order in which the US plays a more multilateral role. His views may be deemed 'too idealistic' and not be shared by protagonists of a unilateral approach in US foreign policy, but they are provocative and highly interesting and, as always, based on deep insights and a broad and detailed historical knowledge.' Marcel H. Van Herpen, Cicero Foundation, The Netherlands '...a tightly written, well-supported, extensively documented analysis of the US grand strategy to deal with the international threat of terrorism...A series of significant conclusions is proffered by the author...Highly recommended.' Choice '...the book will provide an interesting and thought-provoking read for those who - armed with a solid previous knowledge of American foreign policy - want to engage in an all-encompassing overview of the crucial security issues facing the world today.' The International Spectator '...one of the most interesting and creative volumes among the recent plethora of books on American grand strategy. Gardner is especially attuned to the complexity of the underlying dynamics shaping foreign policies abroad.' The National Interest '...a thorough and critical study of US foreign policy in the post-September 11, 2001 period...a refreshing analysis...This book deserves to be read by scholars and lay people alike.' The Muslim News '...Gardner's work serves to provoke analysis of the incentives and objectives - or lack therof according to the scholar - of American foreign policy since 9/11 and strives to formulate a more coherent, and more encompassing American global strategy. An effort that by itself is a praiseworthy exercise, because it provides an alternative mode of thinking with respect to current thought. Furthermore, Gardner's analytical, erudite and detailed descriptions makes American Global Strategy and the "War on Terrorism" a publication that is well worth reading.'

240 Pages. A signed personal dedication from Martin Bell on the title page and a compliment slip from the House of Commons. After the most unusual and quixotic campaign of recent memory, Martin Bell was elected to Parliament by a landslide as an Independent - a species thought to have been extinct since 1950. This book is an account of that campaign and the fascinating years in Parliament that followed -constituency work, committee work and trying to find an independent place in the traditional structures of the House of Commons. It is a perspective on democracy, the role of an individual within Parliament and a fresh account of an entirely unexpected career. Book Description: After the most unusual and quixotic campaign of recent memory, Martin Bell was elected to Parliament by a landslide as an Independent - a species thought to have been extinct since 1950. This book is an account of that campaign and the fascinating years in Parliament that followed -constituency work, committee work and trying to find an independent place in the traditional structures of the House of Commons. It is a perspective on democracy, the role of an individual within Parliament and a fresh account of an entirely unexpected career. : Amazon Review: If the BBC had found me a small war somewhere, none of the rest of this story would have occurred. There is a photograph in An Accidental MP of Martin Bell, brow furrowed, mouth open, eyes glazed with what could be incomprehension or incredulity. This could almost be the freeze-frame embodiment of this engaging self-penned account of his by-election victory over Neil Hamilton, Tory MP and the parliamentarian most associated with sleaze, and his subsequent career as parliament's first Independent MP for almost half a century. A self-admitted layman in politics with no party allegiances, Bell was sick of the dumbing down of BBC news into "newzak" when he accepted the suggestion of standing as a candidate, almost in the course of after dinner chat. However, not everyone wakes up the next morning with a call from Alastair Campbell. As an Independent he had no party machine, "more a contraption" to guide him through the procedural minefields. This in itself would have made for a fascinating everyman story to lead readers through the palace of Westminster, its personalities and processes. Yet perhaps it is Bell's sense of fair play that prevents him from taking us through more of the details of his excellent adventure. He almost comes across as an anachronism, but his self-righteousness seems reasonably well-placed. His passion is undeniable, his sense of injustice acute, and his narration of the effects of landmines and the disgraceful treatment of paratrooper Major Milos Stankovic by the Ministry of Defence pertinent and compelling. His discussion of the Kosovo war is strong on commitment, although readers looking for more detail might find deeper argument in Michael Ignatieff's Virtual War. There are few surprises for the cynical: parliament is increasingly populated by cronies, MPs debate too long, and Peter Mandelson really is the prince of darkness. Yet this is a fascinating read carried along by Bell's self-effacing wit. Apparently he is toying with the idea of continuing beyond his pledge of one term. One doesn't know whether to pity his foolhardiness or envy his next great adventure. --Larry Brown : About the Author: The enormously popular Martin Bell was a staff member of BBC TV news from 1965 to his sudden retirement in April 1997. Awarded the OBE in 1992, he was also voted Royal Television Society Reporter in 1977 and again in 1993 for his work in Bosnia. He was elected Independent MP for the Tatton constituency in 1997. -- Size: 16 x 2.5 x 24.1 cm. 240 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Politics & Government; Signed by Author. ISBN: 0670892319.

280 Pages. Foredges of the page and front cover is slightly marked. In the post-9/11 climate, the role of Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) states in Europe?s regional security environment and international politics has become more than ever a focus for attention, but remains ill-understood. This book provides a framework for the analysis of Middle Eastern foreign policies in general, and for understanding these states? relations with Europe in particular. The book fills a gap in the literature on Euro-Middle Eastern relations by adopting a south-to-north perspective, using the tools of Foreign Policy Analysis to examine the determinants of the foreign policies of the MENA states themselves: only thus can one hope to arrive at a genuine understanding of what underlies these states? evolving policy orientations and behaviour towards Europe. The volume starts by laying out a conceptual framework for analysis, and examining the domestic, regional, and international environments that condition MENA foreign policies. Actual policy output is then systematically investigated through a wide range of country case studies ranging from the Maghreb and the Mashreq to the Gulf and Turkey. Europe is treated throughout both as a target of those foreign policies, and as part of the environment that shapes them.The result of a two-year project sponsored by the European University Institute?s Mediterranean Programme, the book helps bridge the divide between Middle East expertise and the discipline of International Relations. The systematic comparative analysis of MENA states? foreign policy with special reference to Europe throws new light on questions about ?Third World? foreign policy.

"This book introduces and explores the role of apprehension in reasoning - setting out the problems, determining the vocabulary, fixing the boundaries, and questioning what is often taken for granted. Lynn Holt argues that a robust conception of rationality must include intellectual virtues which cannot be reduced to a set of rules for reasoners, and argues that the virtue of apprehension, an acquired disposition to see things correctly, is required if rationality is to be defensible. Drawing on an Aristotelian conception of intellectual virtue and examples from the sciences, Holt shows why impersonal standards for rationality are misguided, why foundations for knowledge are the last elements to emerge from inquiry not the first, and why intuition is a poor substitute for virtue. By placing the current scene in historical perspective, Holt displays the current impasse as the inevitable outcome of the replacement of intellectual virtue with method in the early modern philosophical imagination. Written in an engaging and jargon-free style, this book is of interest to a wide range of readers, particularly epistemologists and philosophers of science concerned with the fate of reason. Contents: Introduction; The Aristotelian background: practical reasoning, theoretical reasoning, and the intellectual virtues; Apprehension and the apprehensive virtues; The epistemic role of apprehension; The rationality of scientific discovery and experiment; Objectivity and truth; Index."

224 Pages. NEW. People are on the move across the Arab world, organizing politically in new ways. The Arab media have also undergone a transformation and are still in a state of flux. It is therefore crucial to be able to discuss political initiatives in the region in the light of media developments. This authoritative book answers key questions about the connections between media and political change in the Arab world. Using research into, for example, practices of Internet users, journalists, demonstrators and producers of reality TV, it explores the interface between public interaction over the airwaves, at the polls and on the streets. A lively group of contributors explores such issues as whether young people are served well by new media, whether blogging is an influential political tool, whether satellite news helps or hinders diasporic communities politically, and much more. Engaging with debates at the heart of public affairs and popular culture in Arab countries, this book addresses everyone who seeks to grasp the media politics of this central, often misunderstood region.

Naomi Sakr has compiled a uniformly high-quality set of essays by leading analysts. Not only are the papers rich in empirical data, they also delve critically into the debates on how (or whether) the new media are shaping the public sphere, democratic attitudes, religious mobilization, and cultural redefinition.

Available Now. Missing Dustcover. "Book Description: Human rights are acquiring an increasingly prominent role on the world stage. Interest in, concern about and action on human rights are widespread and rising, albeit in a far from globally even, uniform and untroubled fashion. Human rights have generated a booming global industry while having become, not unconnectedly, highly controversial and deeply contested. Human rights matters have emerged as a major source of disagreement, dispute and discord at and between the local, regional and global levels of social, cultural, political and economic life. These developments are addressed in the book by an examination of the links between the evolving global human rights regime (GHRR) and the character and course of human rights in the world's most dynamic, complex and problematic region, that of the Asia Pacific. The authors argue that although the Asia Pacific and human rights nexus is influenced by cultural clashes, it is largely shaped by power distributions and struggles rooted in the global political economy (GPE). The prevailing GHRR reflects the way in which globalization processes have been Western led, but its future is far from certain given the current shift in the balance of GPE power towards the Asia Pacific, and especially East Asia. : Review: 'Globalization has carried the modernist moral agenda that underpins the burgeoning human rights industry onto the contested terrain of the traditional values of the Asian Pacific region. Close and Askew's important book offers accessible, non-legalistic insights into the complexities of the evolving relationship between the human rights agenda, regional cultural traditions and the growing influence of the political economy of the Asian Pacific region on the world stage.' Gwen Wallace, Emeritus Professor, University of Derby, UK 'By forcefully arguing for the importance of power and culture in understanding human rights in the Asia Pacific, Close and Askew make a timely contribution to current debates on human rights. An impressive, critical analysis from a global political economy perspective is complemented by an empirically rich account of a broad range of human rights matters. The book invites readers to contemplate an intensification of contests over human rights as the Asia Pacific further advances its political economy status on the world stage.'

Available Now. Book Description: "My arms had no sensation now. I was naked and my nakedness frightened me. I was ashamed". This book is Asiye Guzel's account of her ambush by Turkey's security forces and subsequent rape, torture and isolation. In 1996, she was incarcerated for more than five years for belonging to an illegal left-wing party. Asiye fought off suicidal urges, intense fear of dishonour and stigma and nightmarish flashbacks. Finally she decided to seek treatment, declare her experiences publicly and write her story. Speaking out as Asiye does in this book risks ugly consequences in Turkey as in many other countries. Her courage in doing so cannot be dismissed. "Asiye's Story" is more than a memoir that testifies to its author's passionate and defiant will. As she comes to re-define what "honour" means, Asiye also connects her experience to that of thousands of women and men across the world. For this reason, her story is a vital contribution to the struggle to bear witness to such human rights abuses all over the world. "The torturers will lose. I have complete faith in that. So I shout: "I want the future! I want the future!"". : Review: 'Asiye's rape, torture and maltreatment while in detention are described with searing and dignified clarity.' New Statesman 'A political memoir that articulates all that happened without shame ... courageous.' The Guardian 'One of the first detailed accounts of state-based sexual violence, smuggled out of Turkey chapter by chapter, will encourage other women (and some men) to come forward and talk openly about their experience of rape and sexual abuse.' The Times 'However appalling and incredible, the events described in these pages must be read. Asiye's courage shines through every page of this sensitive account, making Asiye's Story as uplifting as it is harrowing.' Anne Sebba 'Asiye speaks for countless women who have been tortured and assaulted. She has found words for the fear, pain and loneliness, and faced her oppressors whilst determined not to surrender to the suffering.' Helen Bamber OBE : About the Author: Asiye Zeybek Guzel was released in 2002. She fled to Sweden with the aid of PEN, and was re-sentenced in absentia to another twelve and a half years in prison. She remains in Sweden, where she declared political asylum and received a prize in honour of her writing. She is currently writing another book. Size: 19.7 x 12.8 x 1 cm. 123 pages.

192 Pages. John Rawls's pioneering work of political philosophy A Theory of Justice has had far reaching influence on modern liberal political philosophy. Rawls' sprinciples of justice as fairness: the principle of liberty, the principle of fair equality of opportunity and the famous 'difference principle' have been both heavily criticized and incorporated into other political theories. In this book Pšivšnsalo both presents a deep analysis of the whole Rawlsian canon and builds upon and goes beyond Rawls's conception by introducing a fresh theoretical framework to clarify and modify different balances of the elements of Rawlsian justice. Justice as fairness is analyzed into its parts and elements, critically examined to find the strongest most favourable interpretations of each principle and in this light the principles are reconstructed and rebalanced in such a way as to resist the most significant criticisms of the Rawlsian project. Contents: Preface; Introduction: Rawls and beyond; Fundamentals of construction; Reasonable democracy and responsible persons; Extensions and balancing; Conclusions: between traditions, theories, and intuitions; Bibliography; Index.

The reasonable balancing Ville Paivansalo has in view is an ongoing project, subject to periodic adjustments and conducted by thoughtful persons. It is not a static, 'once for all' thing. It is, in his account, a balancing that is "internal" (based on values and norms internal to Rawls's own perspective), 'critical' (taking account of and accommodating, so much as possible, persistent and well-conceived criticisms of Rawls's theory), and "inclusive" (taking on board, in an integrated and principled fashion, many of Rawls's proposals -- but quite consciously going beyond them).'

Or Is Australia just a melting pot of different peoples and cultures without a common culture? - What Is distinctive and What Is universal about everyday life in Australia? in a post-colonial : Review: 'Being All Equal is a timely critique of repressive ideologies and practices that masquerade as populism or egalitarianism. By dissecting the motivations that animate the superficially bland inclusiveness of liberal nationalism, Judith Kapferer has made of Australian cultural politics a globally apposite object-lesson for political and social theory. Especially telling is her treatment of suburbia, which, in its unsettling capacity to excite both contempt and desire, emerges in this book as a central metaphor of the discursive alchemy of late capitalism and exposes the self-effacing sources of nationalist hegemony.'Professor Michael Herzfeld, Harvard University'Kapferer's Being All Equal, constitutes a readable, engaging and insightful, if theoretically somewhat limited discussion of contemporary projects of nation-building in Australia and how they might relate to the contemporary Australian state and people...'A significant strength of Kapferer's monograph is her attention to : About the Author: Judith Kapferer Freelance Sociologist,formerly Senior Lecturer in the Sociology of Education, Flinders University of South Australia Size: 14 x 1.7 x 21.6 cm. 312 pages.

208 Pages. Since the Enlightenment, liberal democratic governments in Europe and North America have been compelled to secure the legitimacy of their authority by constructing rational states whose rationality is based on modern forms of law. The first serious challenge to liberal democratic practices of legal legitimacy comes in Marx's early writings on Rousseau and Hegel. In addition to examining Marx's critique of Kant, Hegel, and liberalism, Beyond Hegemony investigates the reasons for the authoritarianism and breakdown of state socialist governments in Russia and elsewhere claiming to put Marx's ideas on democracy and equality into practice. The book explains that although Marx's critique remains valid today, his ideas need to be supplemented by the contributions to social theory made by Nietzsche, Foucault, the critical theory of the Frankfurt School as well as the libertarian socialism of G.D.H. Cole. What emerges is a new theory of political legitimacy which indicates how it is possible to move beyond liberal democracy whilst avoiding the authoritarian turn of state socialism.

William Outhwaite, Sussex University --William Outhwaite, Sussex University: Darrow Schecter's Beyond Hegemony makes a bold attempt to address the persistent stranglehold of liberal democracy and to offer a new alternative theory of political legitimacy. I found the strongest element of the book to be its engagement with liberalism through dissecting the relationship of legality and legitimacy.

221 pages. Karl Popper and Ludwig Wittgenstein were two of the greatest philosophers of the twentieth century. The account of their one and only meeting at Cambridge in 1946 has become legendary for the aggressive disagreement between the two men. Peter Munz, an eye witness to the great dispute, is the only person in the world to have been a student of both Popper and Wittgenstein. Here he describes their philosophical relationship as he experienced it. Munz argues that the later Wittgenstein and Popper ought to be seen as complementing one another. Popper believed that when truth is discovered meaning will take care of itself. However, since, in Popper's view, we can never verify a general proposition, we can never be certain of its truth. There must therefore be a way of understanding what it means even though we cannot be sure of its truth. The post-Tractatus Wittgenstein enables us to see how propositions are meaningful regardless of whether we can ascertain their truth and thus fills a gap in Popper's philosophy. At the same time, Popper was able to make up a deficiency in Wittgenstein's later philosophy. While Wittgenstein had had it that meaningful propositions can be generated in any social order, Popper showed that if propositions are to be true as well as have meaning, the socio-political order in which they are put forward, has to be free and open. Popper and Wittgenstein were barking up the same tree. Though they had much to learn from each other, their personalities stood in the way. Munz imaginatively reconstructs a dialogue to show how the conversation ought to have gone on that famous evening at the Moral Sciences Club in Cambridge in 1946 and then sets out in detail the philosophy that would result from a synthesis of these two great men.
