(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) CHOMSKY
LANGUAGE, MIND, AND POLITICS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0104

Noam Chomsky is well known as a linguist and as a political thinker. He is less well known as a philosopher. Yet his rationalist philosophy ties common-sense understandings of human action and decision (including political thought and action) to that human mental capacity we call language. The key to Chomsky's overall intellectual project lies in what he has to say about a biologically based human nature. McGilvray explains Chomsky's view of human nature in the first three chapters. He begins by distinguishing common-sense understanding fr...

(P/B) HANDBOOK OF TRANSNATIONAL GOVERNANCE
NEW INSTITUTIONS AND INNOVATIONS
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0340

When we speak of global governance today, we no longer mean simply state-to-state diplomacy, international treaties, or intergovernmental organizations like the United Nations. Alongside these 'traditional' elements of global politics are a host of new institutions ranging from global networks of governmental officials, to private codes of conduct for corporations, to action-oriented partnerships of NGOs, governments, corporations, and other actors. These innovative mechanisms offer intriguing solutions to pressing transnational challenges...

(P/B) WILL THE MIDDLE EAST IMPLODE?
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0455

The Middle East has long been fraught with tension and volatility. However, the recent Arab uprisings have intensified instability, turning this 'hot-spot' into a veritable tinderbox whose potential for implosion has far-reaching regional and global consequences. In this short book, leading Middle East scholar Mohammed Ayoob argues that the Arab Spring has both changed and charged some of the region's thorniest problems - from the rise of political Islam to Iran's nuclear ambitions, the Israel-Palestine conflict to rivalries between key re...

(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) SPINOZA
THEN AND NOW
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0559

This third and final volume of the series of writings by Antonio Negri examines how Spinoza's thought constitutes a radical break with past ideas and an essential tool for envisaging a form of politics beyond capitalism. (From the publisher)...

MEDIA EDUCATION (P/B)
LITERACY, LEARNING, AND CONTEMPORARY CULTURE
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0231

How should education respond to the challenges of an increasingly mediated world? How can it enable young people to become active, critical participants in the media culture that surrounds them? And how can it keep pace with the complex technological, cultural and economic changes that are currently reshaping the contemporary media environment? These are some of the questions that arise in the area of media education - or media literacy - which is gradually becoming recognized as a key aspect of the school curriculum in many countries. Thi...

(P/B) THE THEORY OF COMMUNICATIVE ACTION (VOLUME 1)
REASON AND THE RATIONALIZATION OF SOCIETY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0255

Here, for the first time in English, is volume one of Jurgen Habermas's long-awaited magnum opus: The Theory of Communicative Action. This pathbreaking work is guided by three interrelated concerns: (1) to develop a concept of communicative rationality that is no longer tied to the subjective and individualistic premises of modern social and political theory; (2) to construct a two-level concept of society that integrates the 'lifeworld' and 'system' paradigms; and (3) to sketch out a critical theory of modernity that explains its sociopat...

(P/B) THE THEORY OF COMMUNICATIVE ACTION (VOLUME 2)
THE CRITIQUE OF FUNCTIONALIST REASON
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0256

This study offers a systematic reconstruction of the theoretical foundations and framework of critical social theory. It is Habermas' "magnum opus", and it is regarded as one of the most important works of modern social thought. In this second and final volume of the work, Habermas examines the relations between action concepts and systems theory and elaborates a framework for analyzing the developmental tendencies of modern societies. He discusses in detail the work of Marx, Durkheim, G.H. Mead and Talcott Parsons, among others. By distin...

(H/B) AN IMAGINARY RACISM
ISLAMOPHOBIA AND GUILT
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0548

'Islamophobia' is a term that has existed since the nineteenth century. But in recent decades, argues Pascal Bruckner in his controversial new book, it has become a weapon used to silence criticism of Islam. The term allows those who brandish it in the name of Islam to 'freeze' the latter, making reform difficult. Whereas Christianity and Judaism have been rejuvenated over the centuries by external criticism, Islam has been shielded from critical examination and has remained impervious to change. This tendency is exacerbated by the hypocri...

(P/B) WILL THE GIG ECONOMY PREVAIL?
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0549

Increasingly, employees are being falsely treated as 'self-employed'. This phenomenon - the 'gig economy' - is seen as the inevitable shape of things to come. In this book, Colin Crouch takes a step back and questions this logic. He shows how the idea of an employee - a stable status that involves a bundle of rights - has maintained a curious persistence. Examining the ways companies are attacking these rights, from proffering temporary work to involuntary part-time work to 'gigging', he reveals the paradoxes of the situation and argues th...

(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,...

(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) LIQUID LOVE
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0022

This book is about the central figure of our contemporary, 'liquid modern' times - the man or woman with no bonds, and particularly with none of the fixed or durable bonds that would allow the effort of self-definition and self-assertion to come to a rest. Having no permanent bonds, the denizen of our liquid modern society must tie whatever bonds they can to engage with others, using their own wits, skill and dedication. But none of these bonds are guaranteed to last. Moreover, they must be tied loosely so that they can be untied again, qu...

(P/B) READING MARX
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0532

Marx's critique of political economy is vital for understanding the crisis of contemporary capitalism. Yet the nature of its relevance and some of its key tenets remain poorly understood. This bold intervention brings together the work of leading Marx scholars Slavoj Zizek, Frank Ruda and Agon Hamza, to offer a fresh, radical reinterpretation of Marxism that explains the failures of neoliberalism and lays the foundations for a new emancipatory politics. Avoiding trite comparisons between Marx's world view and our current political scene, t...

(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) MODERNITY AND ''WHITENESS''
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0550

Bolivar Echeverria was one of the leading philosophers and critical theorists in Latin America and his work on capitalism and modernity offers a distinctive account, informed by the experiences of Latin American societies, of the social and historical forces shaping the modern world. For Echeverria, capitalism and modernity do not coincide: modernity is a long-term historical phenomenon that involved a new set of relations between human beings and nature and between the individual and the collective, while capitalism is a particular form i...

(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) WHITENESS IN AMERICA
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0567

When Americans think about race, "white" is often the furthest thing from their minds. Yet whiteness colors so much of social life in the United States, from the organization and maintenance of social structures to an individual's sense of self. White has long been the invisible default category against which other racial and ethnic groups are silently compared and marked out as "different." At the same time, whiteness is itself an active marker that many bitterly fight to keep distinctive, and the shifting boundaries of whiteness reflect ...
