(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) 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) 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)...

(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) 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 LOGIC OF PRACTICE
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0206

Now available in paperback, this book offers a major statement of Bourdieu's theoretical approach, illustrating it with examples from anthropology. It will consolidate his reputation as one of the most original and exciting theorists in the social sciences today. Drawing on his own field work as well as a wide range of ethnographic and anthropological texts, Bourdieu unfolds a theoretical perspective which does justice to the practical logic of everyday action as well as the objective structures within which such action takes place. A tho...

(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 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) 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) A STRANGER IN MY OWN COUNTRY
THE 1944 PRISON DIARY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0471

'I lived the same life as everyone else, the life of ordinary people, the masses.' Sitting in a prison cell in the autumn of 1944, Hans Fallada sums up his life under the National Socialist dictatorship, the time of 'inward emigration'. Under conditions of close confinement, in constant fear of discovery, he writes himself free from the nightmare of the Nazi years. His frank and sometimes provocative memoirs were thought for many years to have been lost. They are published here in English for the first time. The confessional mode did not c...

(P/B) ZERO'S NEIGHBOUR
SAM BECKETT
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0390

Zero's Neighbour is Helene Cixous's tribute to the minimalist genius of the artist in exile who courted nothingness in his writing like nobody else: Samuel Beckett. In this unabashedly personal odyssey through a sizeable range of his novels, plays and poems, Cixous celebrates Becketts linguistic flair and the poignant, powerful thrust of his stylistic terseness, and passionately declares her love for his unrivalled expression of the meaningless precious little of life, its unfathomable banality ending in chaos and death. Poised between a c...

(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". Written between 1937 and 1945, these works articulate Schmitt's concerns throughout this period of war and crisis, addressing the major failings of the League of Nations, and presenting Schmitt's own conceptual...

(P/B) SOCIAL REPRESENTATIONS
STUDIES IN SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY
Εκδότης: POLITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3482-0332

Serge Moscovici first introduced the concept of social representations into contemporary social psychology nearly forty years ago. Since then the theory has become one of the predominant approaches in social psychology, not only in continental Europe, but increasingly in the Anglo-Saxon world as well. While Moscovici's work has spread broadly across the discipline, notably through his contributions to the study of minority influences and of the psychology of crowds, the study of social representations has continued to provide the central f...

(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...

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.
