(P/B) MODERNITY AND SELF-IDENTITY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0260

This major study develops a new account of modernity and its relation to the self. Building upon the ideas set out in The Consequences of Modernity, Giddens argues that 'high' or 'late' modernity is a post traditional order characterised by a developed institutional reflexivity. In the current period, the globalising tendencies of modern institutions are accompanied by a transformation of day-to-day social life having profound implications for personal activities. The self becomes a 'reflexive project', sustained through a revisable narrat...

(P/B) WRITINGS ON WAR
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0326

Writings on War collects three of Carl Schmitt's most important and controversial texts, here appearing in English for the first time: The Turn to the Discriminating Concept of War, The Grossraum Order of International Law, and The International Crime of the War of Aggression and the Principle "Nullum crimen, nulla poena sine lege".

(P/B) THE SECOND COMING
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0546

We have entered the gateway to the apocalypse. This theological concept is the best metaphor to describe the world in which we are already living. Chaos is all around us: political folly, economical delirium, ecological catastrophe, intellectual cynicism, technological simulation of life. This is what Franco 'Bifo' Berardi suggests in this wry, dark, disconcerting but also brilliant and invigorating journey through the main events that we have witnessed in recent years. One century after the Communist revolution, the very idea that the wor...

(P/B) HOW TO FIGHT INEQUALITY
AND WHY THAT FIGHT NEEDS YOU
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0571

Inequality is the crisis of our time. The growing gap between a few at the top and the rest of society damages us all. No longer able to deny the crisis, every government in the world is now pledged to fix it - and yet it keeps on getting worse. In this book, international anti-inequality campaigner Ben Phillips shows why winning the debate is not enough: we have to win the fight. Drawing on his insider experience, and his personal exchanges with the real-life heroes of successful movements, he shows how the battle against inequality has b...

(P/B) CAN WE LIVE TOGETHER?
EQUALITY AND DIFFERENCE
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0136

In this provocative and timely new book, Alain Touraine explores the question of how we might live together in a truly globalized world society. Rejecting the seductive metaphor of a global melting pot, Touraine mounts a powerful attack on the idea that we now live together as equals, sharing the same social and cultural values. If anything, he argues, our differences are being heightened, as communities increasingly define their identities against the encroaching forces of globalization. Touraine argues that the twin processes of globali...

(P/B) LIQUID EVIL
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0488

There is nothing new about evil; it has been with us since time immemorial. But there is something new about the kind of evil that characterizes our contemporary liquid-modern world. The evil that characterized earlier forms of solid modernity was concentrated in the hands of states claiming monopolies on the means of coercion and using the means at their disposal to pursue their ends ends that were at times horrifically brutal and barbaric. In our contemporary liquid-modern societies, by contrast, evil has become altogether more pervasive...

(P/B) NATIONALISM
THEORY, IDEOLOGY, HISTORY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0284

For the last two centuries, nationalism has been a central feature of society and politics. Few ideologies can match its power and resonance, and no other political movement and symbolic language has such worldwide appeal and resilience. But nationalism is also a form of public culture and political religion, which draws on much older cultural and symbolic forms. Seeking to do justice to these different facets of nationalism, the second edition of this popular and respected overview has been revised and updated with contemporary developme...

(P/B) LIQUID FEAR
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0248

Modernity was supposed to be the period in human history when the fears that pervaded social life in the past could be left behind and human beings could at last take control of their lives and tame the uncontrolled forces of the social and natural worlds. And yet, at the dawn of the twenty-first century, we live again in a time of fear. Whether it's the fear of natural disasters, the fear of environmental catastrophes or the fear of indiscriminate terrorist attacks, we live today in a state of constant anxiety about the dangers that could...

(P/B) WHY WE HATE POLITICS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0300

Politics was once a term with an array of broadly positive connotations, associated with public scrutiny, deliberation and accountability. Yet today it is an increasingly dirty word, typically synonymous with duplicity, corruption, inefficiency and undue interference in matters both public and private. How has this come to pass? Why do we hate politics and politicians so much? How pervasive is the contemporary condition of political disaffection? And what is politics anyway? In this lively and original work, Colin Hay provides a series o...

(P/B) LIQUID MODERNITY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0371

In this new book, Bauman examines how we have moved away from a 'heavy' and 'solid', hardware-focused modernity to a 'light' and 'liquid', software-based modernity. This passage, he argues, has brought profound change to all aspects of the human condition. The new remoteness and un-reachability of global systemic structure coupled with the unstructured and under-defined, fluid state of the immediate setting of life-politics and human togetherness, call for the rethinking of the concepts and cognitive frames used to narrate human individual...

(P/B) MOBILITIES
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0423

Issues of movement - of people, things, information and ideas - are central to people's lives and to most organisations. From oil wars to SMS texting, from airport expansion controversies to the decline of walking, from slave-trading to global terrorism, from global warming to teleworking, issues of `mobility' are centre-stage upon many academic and policy agendas. These topics and issues are increasingly analysed as part of a concern with "mobility" which this wide-ranging book both describes and seeks to develop. John Urry has been at th...

(P/B) A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE
FROM THE END OF THE MIDDLE AGES TO THE PRESENT
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0447

Violence is so much in the news today that we may find it hard to believe that it is less prevalent than it was in the past. But this is exactly what the distinguished historian Robert Muchembled argues in this major new work on the history of violence. He shows that brutality and homicide have been in decline since the thirteenth century. The thesis of a 'civilizing process', of a gradual taming, even sublimation, of violence, seems, therefore, to be well-founded. How are we to explain this decline in public displays of aggression? What ...

(P/B) THE POSTHUMAN
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0494

The Posthuman offers both an introduction and major contribution to contemporary debates on the posthuman. Digital 'second life', genetically modified food, advanced prosthetics, robotics and reproductive technologies are familiar facets of our globally linked and technologically mediated societies. This has blurred the traditional distinction between the human and its others, exposing the non-naturalistic structure of the human. The Posthuman starts by exploring the extent to which a post-humanist move displaces the traditional humanistic...

(P/B) THE METRIC SOCIETY
ON THE QUANTIFICATION OF THE SOCIAL
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0534

In today's world, numbers are in the ascendancy. Societies dominated by star ratings, scores, likes and lists are rapidly emerging, as data are collected on virtually every aspect of our lives. From annual university rankings, ratings agencies and fitness tracking technologies to our credit score and health status, everything and everybody is measured and evaluated. In this important new book, Steffen Mau offers a critical analysis of this increasingly pervasive phenomenon. While the original intention behind the drive to quantify may have...

(P/B) SPACE, PLACE AND GENDER
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0301

This new book brings together Doreen Massey's key writings on three areas central to a range of disciplines. In addition, the author reflects on the development of these ideas and outlines her current position on these important issues. The book is organized around the three themes of space, place and gender. It traces the development of ideas about the social nature of space and place and the relation of both to issues of gender and debates within feminism. It is debates in these areas which have been crucial in bringing geography to the ...

(P/B) RADICAL EVIL
A PHILOSOPHICAL INTERROGATION
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0118

At present, there is an enormous gulf between the visibility of evil and the paucity of our intellectual resources for coming to grips with it. We have been flooded with images of death camps, terrorist attacks and horrendous human suffering. Yet when we ask what we mean by radical evil and how we are to account for it, we seem to be at a loss for proper responses. Bernstein seeks to discover what we can learn about the meaning of evil and human responsibility. He turns to philosophers such as Kant, who coined the expression 'radical evil'...

(P/B) THE COLONIALISM OF HUMAN RIGHTS
ONGOING HYPOCRISIES OF WESTERN LIBERALISM
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0570

Do so-called universal human rights apply to indigenous, formerly enslaved and colonized peoples? This trenchant book brings human rights into conversation with the histories and afterlives of Western colonialism and slavery. Colin Samson examines the paradox that the nations that credit themselves with formulating universal human rights were colonial powers, settler colonists and sponsors of enslavement. Samson points out that many liberal theorists supported colonialism and slavery, and how this illiberalism plays out today in selective,...
