(P/B) THE STRUCTURAL TRANSFORMATION OF THE PUBLIC SPHERE
AN INQUIRY INTO A CATEGORY OF BOURGEOIS SOCIETY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0519

This major work retraces the emergence and development of the Bourgeois public sphere -- that is, a sphere which was distinct from the state and in which citizens could discuss issues of general interest. In analysing the historical transformations of this sphere, Habermas recovers a concept which is of crucial significance for current debates in social and political theory. Habermas focuses on the liberal notion of the bourgeois public sphere as it emerged in Europe in the early modern period. He examines both the writings of political th...

(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) 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) IDENTITY
CONVERSATIONS WITH BENEDETTO VECHI
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0016

As we grapple with the insecurity and uncertainty of liquid modernity, Bauman argues that our socio-political, cultural, professional, religious and sexual identities are undergoing a process of continual transformation. Identities the world over have become more precarious than ever: we live in an era of constant change and disposability - whether it's last season's outfit, or car, or even partner -- and our identities as a result have become transient and deeply elusive. In a world of rapid global change where national borders are increa...

(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) 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) SYRIZA IN POWER
REFLECTIONS OF AN ACCIDENTAL POLITICIAN. BY COSTAS DOUZINAS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0521

Amid the turmoil of economic crisis, Greece has become the first European experiment of left rule in a sea of neoliberalism. What happens when a government of the Left, committed to social justice and the reversal of austerity, is blackmailed into following policies it has fought against and strongly opposes? What can the experience of the Syriza government tell us about the prospects for the Left in the twenty-first century? In this engaging and provocative book, Costas Douzinas uses his position as an 'accidental politician', unexpectedl...

(H/B) DESIRE AND ITS INTERPRETATION
THE SEMINAR OF JACQUES LACAN, BOOK VI
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0553

What does Lacan show us? He shows us that desire is not a biological function; that it is not correlated with a natural object; and that its object is fantasized. Because of this, desire is extravagant. It cannot be grasped by those who might try to master it. It plays tricks on them. Yet if it is not recognized, it produces symptoms. In psychoanalysis, the goal is to interpret-that is, to read-the message regarding desire that is harbored within the symptom. Although desire upsets us, it also inspires us to invent artifices that can serve...

(P/B) DICTATORSHIP
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0450

Now available in English for the first time, Dictatorship is Carl Schmitt's most scholarly book and arguably a paradigm for his entire work. Written shortly after the Russian Revolution and the First World War, Schmitt analyses the problem of the state of emergency and the power of the Reichsprasident in declaring it. Dictatorship, Schmitt argues, is a necessary legal institution in constitutional law and has been wrongly portrayed as just the arbitrary rule of a so-called dictator. Dictatorship is an essential book for understanding the...

(P/B) COMMUNITY
SEEKING SAFETY IN AN INSECURE WORLD
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0019

'Community' is one of those words that feels good: it is good 'to have a community', 'to be in a community'. And 'community' feels good because of the meanings which the word conveys, all of them promising pleasures, and more often than not the kind of pleasures which we would like to experience but seem to miss. 'Community' conveys the image of a warm and comfortable place, like a fireplace at which we warm our hands on a frosty day. Out there, in the street, all sorts of dangers lie in ambush; in here, in the community, we can relax and ...

(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 TIMES
LIVING IN AN AGE OF UNCERTAINTY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0249

The passage from 'solid' to 'liquid' modernity has created a new and unprecedented setting for individual life pursuits, confronting individuals with a series of challenges never before encountered. Social forms and institutions no longer have enough time to solidify and cannot serve as frames of reference for human actions and long-term life plans, so individuals have to find other ways to organize their lives. They have to splice together an unending series of short-term projects and episodes that don't add up to the kind of sequence to ...

(P/B) LIQUID SURVEILLANCE
A CONVERSATION
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0493

Today the smallest details of our daily lives are tracked and traced more closely than ever before, and those who are monitored often cooperate willingly with the monitors. From London and New York to New Delhi, Shanghai and Rio de Janeiro, video cameras are a familiar and accepted sight in public places. Air travel now commonly involves devices such as body-scanners and biometric checks that have proliferated in the wake of 9/11. And every day Google and credit-card issuers note the details of our habits, concerns and preferences, quietly...

(P/B) MODERNITY AND THE HOLOCAUST
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0133

Sociology is concerned with modern society, but has never come to terms with one of the most distinctive and horrific aspects of modernity - the Holocaust. The book examines what sociology can teach us about the Holocaust, but more particularly concentrates upon the lessons which the Holocaust has for sociology. Bauman's work demonstrates that the Holocaust has to be understood as deeply involved with the nature of modernity. There is nothing comparable to this work available in the sociological literature. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE POSTNATIONAL CONSTELLATION
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0214

Does a global economy render the traditional nation-state obsolete? Does globalization threaten democratic life, or offer it new forms of expression? What are the implications of globalization for our understanding of politics and of national and cultural identities? In The Postnational Constellation, the leading German philosopher and social theorist J?rgen Habermas addresses these and other questions. He explores topics such as the historical and political origins of national identity, the catastrophes and achievements of "the long twent...

(P/B) GENDER
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0001

How can we understand gender in the contemporary world? What psychological differences now exist between women and men? How are masculinities and femininities made? And what is the relationship between gender issues and globalizing concerns such as environmental change and economic restructuring? Raewyn Connell, one of the world's leading scholars in the field, is here joined by Rebecca Pearse as they answer these questions and more. Their book provides a readable introduction to modern gender studies, covering empirical research from all ...

(H/B) LETTER TO D
A LOVE STORY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0400

"You're 82 years old. You've shrunk six centimetres, you only weigh 45 kilos yet you're still beautiful, graceful and desirable" - so begins Andre Gorz's "open love letter" to the woman he has lived with for 58 years and who lies dying next to him. As one of France's leading post-war philosophers, Andre Gorz wrote many influential books, but nothing he wrote will be read as widely or remembered as long as this simple, passionate, beautiful letter to his dying wife. In a bittersweet postscript a year after Letter to D was published, a note ...

(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) DERRIDA
A BIOGRAPHY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0460

This biography of Jacques Derrida (1930-2004) tells the story of a Jewish boy from Algiers, excluded from school at the age of twelve, who went on to become the most widely translated French philosopher in the world - a vulnerable, tormented man who, throughout his life, continued to see himself as unwelcome in the French university system. We are plunged into the different worlds in which Derrida lived and worked: pre-independence Algeria, the microcosm of the Ecole Normale Superieure, the cluster of structuralist thinkers, and the turbul...

(P/B) WHY JOURNALISM STILL MATTERS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0540

Can we talk about the news media without proclaiming journalism either our savior or the source of all evil? It is not easy to do so, but it gets easier if we put the problems and prospects of journalism in historical and comparative perspective, view them with a sociological knowledge of how newsmaking operates, and see them in a political context that examines how political institutions shape news as well as how news shapes political attitudes and institutions. Adopting this approach, Michael Schudson examines news and news institutions ...
