Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0076

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...

(P/B) The Origin of Capitalism
A Longer View
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0047

How did the dynamic economic system we know as capitalism develop among the peasants and lords of feudal Europe? In The Origin of Capitalism, a now-classic work of history, Ellen Meiksins Wood offers readers a clear and accessible introduction to the theories and debates concerning the birth of capitalism, imperialism, and the modern nation state. Capitalism is not a natural and inevitable consequence of human nature, nor simply an extension of age-old practices of trade and commerce. Rather, it is a late and localized product of very spec...

A History of the Home and the Fight for Free Time
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0800

Does it ever feel like you have no free time? You come home after work and instead of finding a space of rest and relaxation, you're confronted by a pile of new tasks to complete - cooking, cleaning, looking after the kids, and so on. In this ground-breaking book, Helen Hester and Nick Srnicek lay out how unpaid work in our homes has come to take up an ever-increasing portion of our lives - how the vacuum of free time has been taken up by vacuuming. Examining the history of the home over the past century - from running water to white goods...

(P/B) THE COMMUNIST HORIZON
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0679

Jodi Dean unshackles the communist ideal from the failures of the Soviet Union. In the new capitalism of networked information technologies, our very ability to communicate is exploited, but revolution is still possible if we organise on the basis of our common and collective desires. Examining the experience of the Occupy movement, Dean argues that such spontaneity can’t develop into a revolution and it needs to constitute itself as a party. An innovative work of pressing relevance, The Communist Horizon offers nothing less than a manifes...

(P/B) TEN MYTHS ABOUT ISRAEL
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0622

In this groundbreaking book, published on the fiftieth anniversary of the Occupation, the outspoken and radical Israeli historian Ilan Pappe examines the most contested ideas concerning the origins and identity of the contemporary state of Israel. The "ten myths" that Pappe explores - repeated endlessly in the media, enforced by the military, accepted without question by the world's governments - reinforce the regional status quo. He explores the claim that Palestine was an empty land at the time of the Balfour Declaration, as well as the ...

(P/B) TOMORROW SEX WILL BE GOOD AGAIN
WOMEN AND DESIRE IN THE AGE OF CONSENT
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0771

Women are in a bind. In the name of consent and empowerment, they must proclaim their desires clearly and confidently. Yet sex researchers suggest that women's desire is often slow to emerge. And men are keen to insist that they know what women-and their bodies-want. Meanwhile, sexual violence abounds. How can women, in this environment, possibly know what they want? And why do we expect them to?In this elegant, searching book-spanning science and popular culture; pornography and literature; debates on Me-Too, consent and feminism-Katherin...

A consensus-shattering account of automation technologies and their effect on workplaces and the labor market In this consensus-shattering account of automation technologies, Aaron Benanav investigates the economic trends that will shape our working lives far into the future. Silicon Valley titans, politicians, techno-futurists, and social critics have united in arguing that we are on the cusp of an era of rapid technological automation, heralding the end of work as we know it. But does the much discussed "rise of the robots" really explai...

(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...

Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0154

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...

(P/B) ABOLISH THE FAMILY
A MANIFESTO FOR CARE AND LIBERATION
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0788

What if we could do better than the family? We need to talk about the family. For those who are lucky, families can be filled with love and care, but for many they are sites of pain: from abandonment and neglect, to abuse and violence. Nobody is more likely to harm you than your family. Even in so-called happy families, the unpaid, unacknowledged work that it takes to raise children and care for each other is endless and exhausting. It could be otherwise: in this urgent, incisive polemic, leading feminist critic Sophie Lewis makes the case...

(P/B) PROLETARIAN NIGHTS
THE WORKERS' DREAM IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY FRANCE
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0356

Proletarian Nights, previously published in English as Nights of Labor and one of Ranciere's most important works, dramatically reinterprets the Revolution of 1830, contending that workers were not rebelling against specific hardships and conditions but against the unyielding predetermination of their lives. Through a study of worker-run newspapers, letters, journals, and worker-poetry, Ranciere reveals the contradictory and conflicting stories that challenge the coherence of these statements celebrating labor. This updated edition include...

VOICES OF RESISTANCE
Εκδότης: VERSO BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0627-0600

With race and the police once more burning issues, this classic work from one of America's giants of black radicalism has lost none of its prescience or power.

Newton, Bobby Seale and Erica Huggins, this book is not only an account of Davis's incarceration and the struggles surrounding it, but also perhaps th...

(P/B) Non-Places : An Introduction to 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, computer 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 the logic of these late-capitalist phenomena - a logic of excessive information and excessive space. In this fascinating and lucid essay he seeks to establish and...
