(P/B) PASSWORDS
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0042

Sixteen points of entry - from the object and the virtual, to seduction and the transparency of evil - draw readers into a knockoff world of fantasy and calamity that could only be our own. Passwords serves as both an accessible introduction and a guide to the deeper connections running through almost four decades of the author's thought. (from the publisher)...

(H/B) NEVER ENDING NIGHTMARE
THE NEOLIBERAL ASSAULT ON DEMOCRACY
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0705

How do we explain the strange survival of the forces responsible for the 2008 economic crisis, the worst since 1929? How is it that the economic policies that created the Great Recession emerged stronger than ever? When the system broke, a number of the world's most prominent economists hastened to announce that neoliberalism was over. But reports of its death were greatly exaggerated. For Pierre Dardot and Christian Laval, neoliberalism is no mere dogma. Supported by powerful oligarchies, it is a veritable politico-institutional system, o...

(P/B) POLITICS AND HISTORY
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0153

In the first two essays of this book, Louis Althusser analyses the work of two of the greatest thinkers of the Enlightenment - Montesquieu and Rousseau. He shows that although they made considerable advances towards establishing a science of politics, particularly in comparison with the theorists of natural law, they nevertheless remained the victims of the ideologies of their day and class. Montesquieu accepted as given the political notions current in French absolutism; Rousseau attempted to impose by moral conversion an already outdated...

(H/B) THE SOCIALIST MANIFESTO
THE CASE FOR RADICAL POLITICS IN AN ERA OF EXTREME INEQUALITY
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0707

From one of the most prominent voices on the American left, a galvanizing argument for why we need socialism today. Socialism was pronounced dead when the Soviet Union collapsed. But with the success of Jeremy Corbyn's left-led Labour Party and increasing economic inequality, the politics of class struggle and wealth redistribution is back on the agenda. In The Socialist Manifesto, Bhaskar Sunkara offers a primer on socialism for the twenty-first century, outlining where it came from, what it is, and what a socialist political system might...

(P/B) READING CAPITAL
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0237

A landmark of French thought, Reading Capital is no less than an attempt to topple the edifice of Western Marxism and rebuilt it from the original foundations. Establishing a rigorous programme of "symptomatic reading" that cuts through the silences and lacunae of Capital to reveal its philosophical core, Louis Althusser interprets Marx's structural analysis of production as a revolutionary break-the basis of a completely new science. Building on a series of Althussers's conceptual innovations that includes "overdetermination" and "social ...

(P/B) POLITICS AND IDEOLOGY IN MARXIST THEORY
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0352

Ernesto Laclau is best known for co-authoring Hegemony and Socialist Strategy, with Chantal Mouffe. Politically active in the social and student movements of the 1960s, and a member of PSIN (Socialist Party of the National Left), Laclau's oeuvre links the working class and new social movements. Rejecting Marxist economic determinism and the notion of class struggle, Laclau instead urged for a radical democracy where antagonisms could be expressed. Frequently described as post-Marxist, Laclau's writings have focused on political movements. ...

(P/B) THE FUTURE
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0497

For Marc Auge, best-selling author of Non-Places, the prevailing idea of "the Future" rests on our present fears of the contemporary world. It is to the future that we look for redemption and progress; but it is also where we project our personal and apocalyptic anxieties. By questioning notions of certainty, truth, and totality, Auge finds ways to separate the future from our eternal, terrified present and liberates the mind to allow it to conceptualize our possible futures afresh. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) A COMPANION TO MARX'S CAPITAL (VOLUME II)
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0443

The biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression shows no sign of ending, and Marx's work remains key to any attempt to understand the ebb and flow of capitalist economies. For nearly forty years, David Harvey has written and lectured on Capital, becoming one of the world's foremost Marx scholars. Based on his recent lectures, and following the success of his companion to the first volume of Capital, Harvey turns his attention to Volume 2, aiming to bring his depth of learning to a broader audience, guiding first-time readers throu...

(P/B) CLASS CONFLICT AND THE CRISIS OF FEUDALISM
ESSAYS IN MEDIAEVAL SOCIAL HISTORY
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0320

Some of the liveliest and most fruitful debates in recent historical writing have been about the transition from feudalism to capitalism. Rodney Hilton's vast and distinguished body of work on medieval society has been a major reference point in these debates. Throughout his work the dominant theme has been his argument that the "prime mover" in the development of medieval society was the conflict between landlords and peasants over the appropriation of the peasants' surplus product. This is the class conflict which gives the present volum...

(P/B) THE HEGEL VARIATIONS
ON THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF SPIRIT
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0227

In this major new study, philosopher and cultural theorist Fredric Jameson offers an innovative reading of a book that forms part of the bedrock of modern Western thought: Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. Whereas other writers have interpreted the Phenomenology as a rigidly closed system, Jameson discovers it to be a more fluid, open-ended work. Hegel's mind is revealed to be a less systematic mechanism than normally thought, one whose ideas never solidify into pure abstractions. The conclusion of the Phenomenology, on the aftermath of the...

(P/B) AGAINST METHOD
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0248

Paul Feyerabend's globally acclaimed work, which sparked and continues to stimulate fierce debate, examines the deficiencies of many widespread ideas about scientific progress and the nature of knowledge. Feyerabend argues that scientific advances can only be understood in a historical context. He looks at the way the philosophy of science has consistently overemphasized practice over method, and considers the possibility that anarchism could replace rationalism in the theory of knowledge. This updated edition of the classic text includes ...

(P/B) NON-PLACES
INTRODUCTION TO AN ANTHROPOLOGY OF SUPERMODERNITY
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0021

An ever-increasing proportion of our lives is spent in supermarkets, airports and hotels, on motorways or in front of TVs, computers and cash machines. This invasion of the world by what Marc Auge calls 'non-space' results in a profound alteration of awareness: something we perceive, but only in a partial and incoherent manner. Auge uses the concept of 'supermodernity' to describe a situation of excessive information and excessive space. In this fascinating essay, now re-issued with a new introduction, he seeks to establish an intellectual...

(P/B) REVOLTING PROSTITUTES
THE FIGHT FOR THE SEX WORKERS RIGHTS
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0689

How the law harms sex workers - and what they want instead. Do you have to think that prostitution is good to support sex worker rights? How do sex worker rights fit with feminist and anti-capitalist politics? Is criminalising clients progressive - and can the police deliver justice? In Revolting Prostitutes, sex workers Juno Mac and Molly Smith bring a fresh perspective to questions that have long been contentious. Speaking from a growing global sex worker rights movement, and situating their argument firmly within wider questions of migr...

(P/B) LIVING IN THE END TIMES
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0214

The underlying premise of the book is a simple one: the global capitalist system is approaching an apocalyptic zero-point. Its four riders of the apocalypse are the ecological crisis, the consequences of the biogenetic revolution, the imbalances within the system itself (problems with intellectual property, the forthcoming struggle for raw materials, food and water), and the explosions of social divisions and exclusions. Society's first reaction is ideological denial, then explosions of anger at the injustices of the new world order, attem...

Born in China, Benedict Anderson spent his childhood in California and Ireland, was educated in England and finally found a home at Cornell University, where he immersed himself in the growing field of Southeast Asian studies. He was expelled from Suharto’s Indonesia after revealing the military to be behind the attempted coup of 1965, an event which prompted reprisals that killed up to a million communists and their supporters. Banned from the country for thirty-five years, he continued his research in Thailand and the Philippines, produc...

(P/B) FUTURE OF THE IMAGE
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0169

A leading philosopher presents a radical manifesto for the future of art and film. In The Future of the Image, Jacques Ranciere develops a fascinating new concept of the image in contemporary art, showing how art and politics have always been intrinsically intertwined. He argues that there is a stark political choice in art: it can either reinforce a radical democracy or create a new reactionary mysticism. For Ranciere there is never a pure art: the aesthetic revolution must always embrace egalitarian ideals. (From the publisher)...

Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0252

This is the first paperback edition of what is now recognized as Marcuse's most important collection of writings on philosophy. He analyzes and attacks some of the main intellectual currents of European thoughts from the Reformation to the Cold War. In a survey that includes Luther, Calvin, Kant, Burke, Hegel and Bergson, he shows how certain concepts of authority and liberty are constant elements in their very different systems. The book also contains Marcuse's famous response to Karl Popper's Poverty of Historicism, and his critique of S...
