(P/B) MASKS OF ANARCHY
THE HISTORY OF A RADICAL POEM, FROM PERCY SHELLEY TO THE TRIANGLE FACTORY FIRE
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0423

"Masks Of Anarchy" tells the extraordinary story of Percy Shelley's poem "The Masque of Anarchy," from its conception in Italy and suppression in England to the moment it became a catalyst for protest among New York City workers a century later. Shelley penned the poem in 1819, after hearing of the Peterloo Massacre, where British cavalry charged peaceful political demonstrators near Manchester. His words would later inspire figures as wide-ranging as Henry David Thoreau and Mahatma Gandhi -and also Pauline Newman, the woman the "New York ...

(P/B) NEW DARK AGE
TECHNOLOGY AND THE END OF THE FUTURE
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0694

We live in times of increasing inscrutability. Our news feeds are filled with unverified, unverifiable speculation, much of it automatically generated by anonymous software. As a result, we no longer understand what is happening around us. Underlying all of these trends is a single idea: the belief that quantitative data can provide a coherent model of the world, and the efficacy of computable information to provide us with ways of acting within it. Yet the sheer volume of information available to us today reveals less than we hope. Rather...

A RADICAL EXPLORATION
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0654

Eric Hazan, author of the acclaimed Invention of Paris, takes the reader on a walk from Ivry to Saint-Denis, roughly following the meridian that divides Paris into east and west, and passing such familiar landmarks as the Luxembourg Gardens, the Pompidou Centre, the Gare du Nord and Montmartre, as well as forgotten alleyways and arcades. Weaving historical anecdotes, geographical observations, and literary references, Hazan's walk guides us through an unknown Paris. With the aid of maps, he delineates the most fascinating and forgotten par...

(P/B) PORTRAITS
JOHN BERGER ON ARTISTS
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0646

John Berger, one of the world's most celebrated art writers, takes us through centuries of drawing and painting, revealing his lifelong fascination with a diverse cast of artists. In Portraits, Berger grounds the artists in their historical milieu in revolutionary ways, whether enlarging on the prehistoric paintings of the Chauvet caves or Cy Twombly's linguistic and pictorial play. In penetrating and singular prose, Berger presents entirely new ways of thinking about artists both canonized and obscure, from Rembrandt to Henry Moore, Jacks...

(H/B) THE LAST MAN TAKES LSD
FOUCAULT AND THE END OF REVOLUTION
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0754

Foucault's personal and political experimentation, its ambiguous legacy, and the rise of neoliberal politics Part intellectual history, part critical theory, The Last Man Takes LSD challenges the way we think about both Michel Foucault and modern progressive politics. One fateful day in May 1975, Foucault dropped acid in the southern California desert. In letters reproduced here, he described it as among the most important events of his life, one which would lead him to completely rework his History of Sexuality. That trip helped redirect ...

(P/B) SCUM MANIFESTO
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0562

Outrageous and violent, SCUM Manifesto was widely lambasted when it first appeared in 1968. Valerie Solanas, the woman who shot Andy Warhol, self-published the book just before she became a notorious household name and was confined to a mental institution. But for all its vitriol, it is impossible to dismiss as the mere rantings of a lesbian lunatic. In fact, the work has proved prescient, not only as a radical feminist analysis light years ahead of its time-predicting artificial insemination, ATMs, a feminist uprising against underreprese...

(P/B) ON POPULIST REASON
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0155

A philosophical and political exploration of the construction of popular identities In this highly original and influential work, Ernesto Laclau focuses on the construction of popular identities and how "the people" emerge as a collective actor. Skilfully combining theoretical analysis with a myriad of empirical references from numerous historical and geographical contexts, he offers a critical reading of the existing literature on populism, demonstrating its dependency on the theorists of "mass psychology," such as Taine and Freud. On Pop...

(P/B) THE IMAGINED, THE IMAGINARY AND THE SYMBOLIC
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0731

Levi-Strauss held that "the real, the symbolic and the imaginary" are three separate orders. Maurice Godelier demonstrates the contrary: the real is not separate from the symbolic and the imaginary. Godelier's book goes to the strategic heart of the social sciences, for to examine the nature and role of the imaginary and the symbolic is also to attempt to account for the basic components of all societies and ultimately of human existence. And these aspects in turn shape our social and personal identity. (From the publisher)...

(H/B) MODERN TIMES
TEMPORALITY IN ART AND POLITICS
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0774

The critique of modernist ideology from France's leading radical theorist Time is more than a line drawn from the past to the future. It is a form of life, marked by the ancient hierarchy between those who have time and those who do not. This hierarchy still governs a present which clings to the fable of historical necessity and its experts. In opposition to this, Jacques Ranciere shows how the break with the hierarchical conception of time implies a completely different idea of the modern. He sees the fulfilment of this in two arts of mov...

(P/B) THE BENJAMIN FILES
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0776

Jameson's first full-length engagement with Walter Benjamin's work. The Benjamin Files offers a comprehensive new reading of all of Benjamin's major works and a great number of his shorter book reviews, notes and letters. Its premise is that Benjamin was an anti-philosophical, anti-systematic thinker whose conceptual interests also felt the gravitational pull of his vocation as a writer. What resulted was a coexistence or variety of language fields and thematic codes which overlapped and often seemed to contradict each other: a view which ...

(P/B) PSYCHOPOLITICS
NEOLIBERALISM AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES OF POWER
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0645

Exploring how neoliberalism has discovered the productive force of the psyche. Byung-Chul Han, a star of German philosophy, continues his passionate critique of neoliberalism, trenchantly describing a regime of technological domination that, in contrast to Foucault's biopower, has discovered the productive force of the psyche. In the course of discussing all the facets of neoliberal psychopolitics fueling our contemporary crisis of freedom, Han elaborates an analytical framework that provides an original theory of Big Data and a lucid phen...

(P/B) CHAVS
THE DEMONIZATION OF THE WORKING CLASS
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0272

In modern Britain, the working class has become an object of fear and ridicule. From Little Britain's Vicky Pollard to the demonization of Jade Goody, media and politicians alike dismiss as feckless, criminalized and ignorant a vast, underprivileged swathe of society whose members have become stereotyped by one, hate-filled word: chavs. In this groundbreaking investigation, Owen Jones explores how the working class has gone from "salt of the earth" to "scum of the earth." Exposing the ignorance and prejudice at the heart of the chav carica...

(P/B) DID SOMEBODY SAY TOTALITARIANISM?
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0765

Totalitarianism has always had a precise strategic function: to guarantee the liberal democratic hegemony by dismissing the Leftist critique of liberal democracy as the two-faced twin of Right-wing dictatorships. Instead of providing yet another systematic exposition of the history of this notion, Zizek looks at totalitarianism in a way that Wittgenstein would approve of - finding it a cobweb of family resemblances. He reveals the consensus view of totalitarianism, in which it is invariably defined in terms of four things: the holocaust as...

Virilio's exploration of the relationship between technology, war and information technology. ?Civilization or the militarization of science?? With this typically hyperbolic and provocative question as a starting point, Paul Virilio explores the dominion of techno-science, cyberwar and the new information technologies over our lives . . . and deaths. After the era of the atomic bomb, Virilio posits an era of genetic and information bombs which replace the apocalyptic bang of nuclear death with the whimper of a subliminally reinforced eugen...

CONTEMPORARY DIALOGUES ON THE LEFT
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0097

Expanding the frontiers of the philosophical Left, Judith Butler, Ernesto Laclau, and Slavoj Zizek collide in a fierce dialogue over the pressure points, burning questions, and black boxes of contemporary thought. At the heart of this experiment in intellectual synthesis is an effort to clarify differences of method and understanding within a common political trajectory. Through a series of exchanges on the value of the Hegelian and Lacanian legacies, the dilemmas of multiculturalism, and the political challenges of a global economy, Butle...

An intense and lively debate on literature and art between thinkers who became some of the great figures of twentieth-century philosophy and literature No other country and no other period has produced a tradition of major aesthetic debate to compare with that which unfolded in German culture from the 1930s to the 1950s. In Aesthetics and Politics the key texts of the great Marxist controversies over literature and art during these years are assembled in a single volume. They do not form a disparate collection but a continuous, interlinked...
