The Biology of Wonder: Aliveness, Feeling and the Metamorphosis of Science

Product : The Biology of Wonder: Aliveness, Feeling and the Metamorphosis of Science
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The disconnection between humans and nature is perhaps the most fundamental problem faced by our species today. The schism between us and the natural world is arguably the root cause of most of the environmental catastrophes unravelling around us. Until we come to terms with the depths of our alienation, we will continue to fail to understand that what happens to nature also happens to us.In The Biology of Wonder author Andreas Weber proposes a new approach to the biological sciences that puts the human back in nature. He argues that feelings and emotions, far from being superfluous to the study of organisms, are the very foundation of life. From this basic premise flows the development of a poetic ecology which intimately connects our species to everything that surrounds us, showing that subjectivity and imagination are the prerequisites of biological existence.The Biology of Wonder demonstrates that there is no separation between us and the world we inhabit, and in so doing it validates the essence of our deep experience. By reconciling science with meaning, expression and emotion, this landmark work brings us to a crucial understanding of our place in the framework of life-a revolution for biology as groundbreaking as the theory of relativity was for physics.

Smash the Church, Smash the State!: The Early Years of Gay Liberation

Product : Smash the Church, Smash the State!: The Early Years of Gay Liberation
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This anthology by former members of the Gay Liberation Front (GLF) captures the history and spirit of the revolutionary time just after Stonewall, when thousands came out of the closet to claim their sexuality, and when queer resistance coalesced into a turbulent, joyous liberation movement-one whose lasting influence would ultimately inform and profoundly shape the LGBT community of today.Personal essays explore the philosophy and culture of the stridently anti-assimilationist GLF: the actions, demonstrations, and marches; views on marriage, religion, and gender; the drugs, orgies, and communes; and GLF''s relationship to the hippies, the Black Panthers, the straight Left, the women''s movement, civil rights, and the antiwar struggle.The collection includes contributions from Martha Shelley, Cei Bell, Paola Bacchetta, Susan Stryker, Tom Ammiano, Nikos Diaman, Mark Segal, Barbara Ruth, and Perry Brass.

The Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, And Phaedo

Product : The Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, And Phaedo
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : As the indisputable father of Western philosophy, Socrates stands as the archetype of free inquiry and intellectual honesty throughout history. He dared to explore the minds of men, to analyze the content of cherished beliefs, and to distinguish knowledge and truth from opinion. This philosophical gadfly irritated the people of Athens, who tried him for corrupting their youth, and subsequently sentenced him to death for his crime.In these four short works by Plato, we come to experience the full range of Socrates'' penetrating mind. In the Euthyphro, Socrates searches after the truth about the nature of piety, even as he makes his way to Athens to answer an indictment leveled against him.The Apology recounts Socrates'' attempt to defend himself against the charge of impiety. Once condemned, Socrates finds himself imprisoned to await death.The Crito captures his views on his relationship with the state and what each has a right to expect from the other.Finally, the Phaedo recalls the death scene as Socrates discusses the nature of the soul and immortality just before succumbing to the hemlock.

The Critique Of Pure Reason

Product : The Critique Of Pure Reason
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Metaphysicians have for centuries attempted to clarify the nature of the world and how rational human beings construct their ideas of it. Materialists believed that the world (including its human component) consisted of objective matter, an irreducible substance to which qualities and characteristics could be attributed. Mindthoughts, ideas, and perceptionswas viewed as a more sophisticated material substance. Idealists, on the other hand, argued that the world acquired its reality from mind, which breathed metaphysical life into substances that had no independent existence of their own.These two camps seemed deadlocked until Immanuel Kant''s Critique of Pure Reason endeavored to show that the most accurate theory of reality would be one that combined relevant aspects of each position, yet transcended both to arrive at a more fundamental metaphysical theory. Kant''s synthesis sought to disclose how human reason goes about constructing its experience of the world, thus intertwining objective simuli with rational processes that arrive at an orderly view of nature.

Outlines of Pyrrhonism

Product : Outlines of Pyrrhonism
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Throughout history philosophers have sought to define, understand, and delineate concepts important to human well-being. One such concept is knowledge. Many philosophers believed that absolute, certain knowledge, is possible—that the physical world and ideas formulated about it could be given solid foundation unaffected by the varieties of mere opinion.Sextus Empiricus stands as an example of the skeptic school of thought whose members believed that knowledge was either unattainable or, if a genuine possibility, the conditions necessary to achieve it were next to impossible to satisfy. In other words, in the absence of complete knowledge, one must make do with the information provided by an imperfect world and conveyed to the mind through sense impressions that can often deceive us. Throughout his life Sextus Empiricus entered into intellectual combat with those who confidently claimed to possess indubitable knowledge. For skeptics, the best one can hope to achieve is a reasonable suspension of judgment—remaining ever mindful that claims to knowledge require careful scrutiny, thoughtful analysis, and critical review if we are to prevent ourselves and others from plunging headlong into mistaken notions.

Description : North American''s often-forgotten F-107A remains perhaps the most enigmatic of the famous early Century Series fighters. The enigma stems from the fact that it was an outstanding and extraordinarily effective war-plane and was, perhaps, the best airplane in the world for its particular job at the time of its late 1956 first flight. Mysteriously, it was never to go into production, even in light of its superior capabilities. The F-107A scored several firsts. Among them were a truly unique flight control system, an advanced inlet system, and the incorporation of a semi-submerged store. It was also the last of a long line of North American fighters to be built.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERFrom the internationally best-selling author of the acclaimed novel The Power of the Dog comes The Cartel, a gripping, true-to-life, ripped-from-the-headlines epic story of power, corruption, revenge, and justice spanning the past decade of the Mexican-American drug wars. It’s 2004. DEA agent Art Keller has been fighting the war on drugs for thirty years in a blood feud against Adán Barrera, the head of El Federación, the world’s most powerful cartel, and the man who brutally murdered Keller’s partner. Finally putting Barrera away cost Keller dearly—the woman he loves, the beliefs he cherishes, the life he wants to lead. Then Barrera gets out, determined to rebuild the empire that Keller shattered. Unwilling to live in a world with Barrera in it, Keller goes on a ten-year odyssey to take him down. His obsession with justice—or is it revenge?—becomes a ruthless struggle that stretches from the cities, mountains, and deserts of Mexico to Washington’s corridors of power to the streets of Berlin and Barcelona. Keller fights his personal battle against the devastated backdrop of Mexico’s drug war, a conflict of unprecedented scale and viciousness, as cartels vie for power and he comes to the final reckoning with Barrera—and himself—that he always knew must happen. The Cartel is a story of revenge, honor, and sacrifice, as one man tries to face down the devil without losing his soul. It is the story of the war on drugs and the men—and women—who wage it.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Many know Kimberly Williams-Paisley as the bride in the popular Steve Martin remakes of the Father of the Bride movies, the calculating Peggy Kenter on Nashville, or the wife of country music artist, Brad Paisley. But behind the scenes, Kim was dealing with a tragic secret: her mother, Linda, was suffering from a rare form of dementia that slowly crippled her ability to talk, write and eventually recognize people in her own family.  Where the Light Gets In tells the full story of Linda’s illness—called primary progressive aphasia—from her early-onset diagnosis at the age of 62 through the present day. Kim draws a candid picture of the ways her family reacted for better and worse, and how she, her father and two siblings educated themselves, tried to let go of shame and secrecy, made mistakes, and found unexpected humor and grace in the midst of suffering. Ultimately the bonds of family were strengthened, and Kim learned ways to love and accept the woman her mother became. With a moving foreword by actor and advocate Michael J. Fox, Where the Light Gets In is a heartwarming tribute to the often fragile yet unbreakable relationships we have with our mothers.

Fundamentals of Cognitive Radio

Product : Fundamentals of Cognitive Radio
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : A comprehensive treatment of cognitive radio networks and the specialized techniques used to improve wireless communications The human brain, as exemplified by cognitive radar, cognitive radio, and cognitive computing, inspires the field of Cognitive Dynamic Systems. In particular, cognitive radio is growing at an exponential rate. Fundamentals of Cognitive Radio details different aspects of the human brain and provides examples of how it can be mimicked by cognitive dynamic systems. The text offers a communication-theoretic background, including information on resource allocation in wireless networks and the concept of robustness. The authors provide a thorough mathematical background with data on game theory, variational inequalities, and projected dynamic systems. They then delve more deeply into resource allocation in cognitive radio networks. The text investigates the dynamics of cognitive radio networks from the perspectives of information theory, optimization, and control theory. It also provides a vision for the new world of wireless communications by integration of cellular and cognitive radio networks. This groundbreaking book: Shows how wireless communication systems increasingly use cognition to enhance their networks Explores how cognitive radio networks can be viewed as spectrum supply chain networks Derives analytic models for two complementary regimes for spectrum sharing (open-access and market-driven) to study both equilibrium and disequilibrium behaviors of networks Studies cognitive heterogeneous networks with emphasis on economic provisioning for resource sharing Introduces a framework that addresses the issue of spectrum sharing across licensed and unlicensed bands aimed for Pareto optimality Written for students of cognition, communication engineers, telecommunications professionals, and others, Fundamentals of Cognitive Radio offers a new generation of ideas and provides a fresh way of thinking about cognitive techniques in order to improve radio networks.

Ornament: The Politics of Architecture and Subjectivity

Product : Ornament: The Politics of Architecture and Subjectivity
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Once condemned by Modernism and compared to a ‘crime’ by Adolf Loos, ornament has made a spectacular return in contemporary architecture. This is typified by the works of well-known architects such as Herzog & de Meuron, Sauerbruch Hutton, Farshid Moussavi Architecture and OMA. There is no doubt that these new ornamental tendencies are inseparable from innovations in computer technology. The proliferation of developments in design software has enabled architects to experiment afresh with texture, colour, pattern and topology. Though inextricably linked with digital tools and culture, Antoine Picon argues that some significant traits in ornament persist from earlier Western architectural traditions. These he defines as the ‘subjective’ – the human interaction that ornament requires in both its production and its reception – and the political. Contrary to the message conveyed by the founding fathers of modern architecture, traditional ornament was not meant only for pleasure. It conveyed vital information about the designation of buildings as well as about the rank of their owners. As such, it participated in the expression of social values, hierarchies and order. By bringing previous traditions in ornament under scrutiny, Picon makes us question the political issues at stake in today’s ornamental revival. What does it tell us about present-day culture? Why are we presently so fearful of meaning in architecture? Could it be that by steering so vehemently away from symbolism, contemporary architecture is evading any explicit contribution to collective values?

The Political Economy of Energy, Finance and Security in the United Arab Emirates: Between the Majilis and the Market

Product : The Political Economy of Energy, Finance and Security in the United Arab Emirates: Between the Majilis and the Market
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The political economy of the United Arab Emirates is firmly rooted in patterns of social behavior, ways of negotiating and disarming dissent that are the foundational institutions of its political structure. These informal institutions are organic, but not outside of the norm of any developing state. There are a number of ways they might structure change and repress dissent, including, but in no way limited to: the formation and contestation of civil society organizations, demands for citizenship or legal status change among expatriates, a regional and outward focus on military power, and a realignment or reinterpretation of federalism. Young argues that the conflicts surrounding the finance, energy and security sectors in the United Arab Emirates are results of institutional constraints (both formal and informal) which are exacerbated by federal tensions between emirates, international political alliances tied to investment opportunities and access, and demographic challenges.

Description : Rapid industrialization, urbanization, and marketization have led to startling social changes in reform-era China. Mindful of the many forms of social theory that relate modernity to individualism, this volume addresses social and cultural change through the lens of psychological anthropology. The contributors explore Chinese modernity through the psychosocial contradictions experienced by artists, dancers, and poets; by mothers and daughters; by school children and migrant workers; the mentally ill, and others. As a whole, the book provides a disturbing but hopeful portrait of Chinese society, an opportunity to rethink the significance of the concept of modernity, and a vivid reminder of the enmeshment of individual psyches in their wider social and cultural environments.

Vice in the Barracks: Medicine, the Military and the Making of Colonial India, 1780-1868

Product : Vice in the Barracks: Medicine, the Military and the Making of Colonial India, 1780-1868
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Sex and alcohol preoccupied European officers across India throughout the nineteenth century, with high rates of venereal disease and alcohol-related problems holding serious implications for the economic and military performance of the East India Company. These concerns revolved around the European soldiery in India – the costly, but often unruly, ''thin white line'' of colonial rule. This book examines the colonial state''s approach to these vice-driven health risks. In doing so it throws new light on the emergence of social and imperial mindsets and on the empire, fuelled by fear of the lower orders, sexual deviation, disease and mutiny. An exploration of these mindsets reveals a lesser-explored fact of rule – the fractured nature of the Company state. Further, it shows how the measures employed by the state to deal with these vice-driven health problems had wide-ranging consequences not simply for the army itself but for India and the empire more broadly. By refocusing our attention on to the military core of the colonial state, Wald demonstrates the ways in which army decision-making stretched beyond the cantonment boundary to help define the state''s engagement with and understanding of Indian society.

Performing Privacy and Gender in Early Modern Literature

Product : Performing Privacy and Gender in Early Modern Literature
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Performing Privacy and Gender in Early Modern Literature demonstrates that early modern women''s rhetorical manipulations of privacy violate the public/private opposition and experiment with form and genre in ways that shaped the early modern discourse on privacy. This book reveals how authors inventively disrupt conventions about women''s privacy and its proper limits in genres from household orders to fiction, poetry, and drama. Mary Trull traces the construction of privacy in Anne Lock''s ''The Meditation of a Penitent Sinner,'' Shakespeare''s All''s Well That Ends Well, Mary Wroth''s Urania, and Aphra Behn''s fiction and lyric poetry. The book explores changing views of privacy from the mid-sixteenth to the end of the seventeenth century, from nostalgically evoked feudalism to emergent signs of distinctively modern forms of privacy linked to the nuclear family and the economic concept of private interest. A conclusion links early modern privacy to digital media and Facebook.

The Political Economy of South Asian Diaspora: Patterns of Socio-Economic Influence

Product : The Political Economy of South Asian Diaspora: Patterns of Socio-Economic Influence
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic Development
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The South Asian diaspora is a diverse group who settled in different parts of the world, often concentrated in developed countries. There is an emerging trend of re-engagement of the diaspora in the South Asian region. Entrepreneurs in Japan and Singapore as well as the Malaysian Indian diaspora are involved in South India making the region a lucrative space for capital, talent and ideas. This volume expands into diasporic communities such as the Nepali community in Singapore and their contribution to their home economy through remittances. Beyond economics, the contributors explore how transnational politics overlap with religious ideologies amongst Pakistanis in United Kingdom and the Sathya Sai Baba movement which contributes to diasporic identity building in host countries. They also explore media and culture: in the last decade Bollywood films have portrayed life in the diaspora, and have featured the diaspora and Non Resident Indians (NRI) as fully formed stock characters and protagonists. The process of diaspora re-engagement has tremendous development implications for South Asian countries, both individually and for their regional integration.

Opponents Of The Annales School

Product : Opponents Of The Annales School
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : For nearly a hundred years, the Annales School has courted controversy: its adherents revolutionised historical research; they augmented the number of topics admissible in academic research on economic, social and civilisation history and they overturned the practices of nineteenth-century historians apparently in favour of an original, interdisciplinary approach.Opponents of the Annales School insists that this is part of a story that Annales historians circulated. Examining Annales from the point of view of opponents, a picture altogether different emerges, one in which a series of assaults and accommodations by scholars across borders deflected annalistes'' propositions about the study of the past. Because of the interconnection of cultural, educational, ideological and religious commitments as well as aspects of modern political cultures in debates between the Annales and their opponents, the analysis adopts a wide lens in order to suggest new horizons in the study of Man''s past.

Many of these ports were part of territories either governed or dominated by France, Britain, Spain or Portugal, that participated in global economy andsociety on very different terms from those northern European cities where major merchant and banking interests had their headquarters. Likewise, the ports of independent American countries underwent their owndevelopment processes. Taking the perspective of the Global South, the volume assesses this globalising trend, with its associated Industrial revolution, colonial expansion and new migrant and commodities flows. The international cast of authors in this collection bring fresh insight to this much debated period of history.

Iceland and the International Financial Crisis: Boom, Bust and Recovery

Product : Iceland and the International Financial Crisis: Boom, Bust and Recovery
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Finance and Investing>Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In the years leading up to the Crash of 2008, Iceland had been triumphed in world business media as an economic miracle. Its new breed of Viking Capitalism had become rock stars of the global finance driven economy, even while it was testing the foundations of Europe''s financial system. Eirikur Bergmann applies Postcolonial analysis to explain the paradigmatic case of Iceland''s fantastical boom, bust and rapid recovery after the Crash. His critical approach to the claims of the financialization advocates relates the questions of the national economy and globalisation to current trends in Europe and the World.

Between Empires: Martí, Rizal, and the Intercolonial Alliance

Product : Between Empires: Martí, Rizal, and the Intercolonial Alliance
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In 1898, both Cuba and the Philippines achieved their independence from Spain and then immediately became targets of US expansionism. This significant book compares the anti-imperial literature and history of Cuba and the Philippines, focusing on the writings of José Martí and José Rizal, the most prominent nationalist authors. Caught between the two empires, Cubans and Filipinos shared similar colonial experiences as well as anti-imperial struggles. Through literary and historical studies, Koichi Hagimoto argues that Martí and Rizal construct the conceptual framework for an ''intercolonial alliance'' at the turn of the century.

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Seriality and Texts for Young People is a collection of thirteen original, scholarly essays about series and serial texts directed to children and youth. Each begins from the premise that a basic principle of seriality is repetition and explores what that means for a range of primary texts, including popular narrative series for children, comics, magazines, TV series, and digital texts. Contributors featured include internationally-recognised scholars such as Perry Nodelman, Margaret Mackey and Laurie Langbauer, and the essays cover texts such as the Harry Potter novels, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Anne of Green Gables. The introduction provides a framework for the detailed explorations, reviewing some of the most important contemporary theories of repetition, pointing to some key criticism on series, and speculating on the significance of the series form for the field of young people''s texts.

Lost Plays in Shakespeare's England

Product : Lost Plays in Shakespeare's England
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Lost plays are a source of significant information on playwrights, playing companies, audiences, and venues in Shakespeare''s England. They include plays by Shakespeare, Marlowe, Jonson, and other canonical playwrights in addition to anonymous plays and the writings of lesser known writers. Details preserved depend upon the record, but may include title, date, authorship, company affiliation, plot, and even details of performance. This edited collection examines assumptions about what a lost play is and how it can be talked about; how lost plays can be reconstructed, particularly when they use narratives already familiar to playgoers; and how lost plays can force us to reassess extant plays, particularly through ideas of repertory studies. Lost plays, it argues, improve our knowledge of playwrights'' and playing companies'' overall dramatic output.

How the Internet Shapes Collective Actions

Product : How the Internet Shapes Collective Actions
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : After a Facebook rebellion in Egypt and Twitter protests in Turkey, the internet has been proclaimed as a globe-shifting, revolutionizing force that can incite complex social phenomena such as collective actions. This book critically assesses this claim and highlights how internet use amplifies and shapes established mobilizing processes to foster collective actions. With a review of the current academic literature on the topic, as well as insights from popular science, practitioners, and activists, Schumann draws upon interdisciplinary empirical evidence to propose that the internet encourages self-organized, personalized collective actions. The research presented here demonstrates how internet-enabled technologies offer an infrastructure for online collective actions that expand individuals'' repertoires of contention, as well as how specific types of internet use—in particular information gathering and discussions online—promote offline engagement.

Recipient States in Global Health Politics: PEPFAR in Africa

Product : Recipient States in Global Health Politics: PEPFAR in Africa
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic Development
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Responding to leading views on the domination of donor states and cooptation of recipient countries in global health programmes, Ricardo Pereira demonstrates that recipient countries hold the capacity to autonomously pursue their own strategies, policies, and ultimately attain political goals, even if highly constrained in their international choices. The analysis of donor-recipient, inter-state relations occurs in the context of the implementation of the United States President''s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) in Botswana, Ethiopia and South Africa. The author shows that the three states engage in PEPFAR because it contributes to the accomplishment of their national interests: national survival (Botswana); regime self-help (Ethiopia); and transmission of values (South Africa).

The BRICs, US 'Decline' and Global Transformations

Product : The BRICs, US 'Decline' and Global Transformations
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic Development
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The author examines the rise of the BRICs and the supposed decline of the United States. Focusing on the boom years from 1992 to 2007, and the crisis years after 2008, he argues that there are limits to the rise of the former and that the extent of US decline has been greatly exaggerated, and that there are therefore good reasons to question the view that there has been an international transformation. The book particularly focuses on how the boom years facilitated the rise of the BRICs, and how this reinforced US power, and that recovery in the global South after the financial crisis is now running out of steam. While this might be a problem for the United States, it is a problem for BRIC countries as well. Perhaps the most important development in the international order in recent years is actually the rise in global inequality.

Commercial Nationalism: Selling The Nation And Nationalizing The Sell

Product : Commercial Nationalism: Selling The Nation And Nationalizing The Sell
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : One of the crucial sites of contestation in current approaches to communication for social change is the status of the national identity in an era characterized by the tensions between the globalization of capitalism and myriad resurgent nationalisms. Commercial Nationalism intervenes in discussions of the fate of nationalism and national identity by exploring the relationship between state appropriation of marketing and branding strategies on the one hand, and, on the other, the commercial mobilization of nationalist discourses. The book's unique contribution is to consider an emerging formation characterized by the following complementary (and related) developments: the ways in which states come increasingly to rely on commercial techniques for self-promotion, diplomacy, and internal national mobilization, and also the ways in which new and legacy forms of commercial media rely on the mobilization emerging configurations of nationalism for the purpose of selling, gaining ratings, and otherwise profiting. We see this formation as a unique reconfiguration of the formation of nationalism associated with the contemporary context. Often these processes are approached separately: what is the economic role of nationalism and how do media participate in the formation of national identity? --

The Non-sovereign Self, Responsibility, And Otherness: Hannah Arendt, Judith Butler, And Stanley Cavell On Moral Philosophy And Po

Product : The Non-sovereign Self, Responsibility, And Otherness: Hannah Arendt, Judith Butler, And Stanley Cavell On Moral Philosophy And Po
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In times of globalization, critiques of sovereignty have become a pervasive feature of political theory. This book investigates how forms of political association and the responsibilities we have for others could be informed by non-sovereign concepts of the self. Placing the reader in dialogue with Hannah Arendt, Judith Butler and Stanley Cavell, it engages with debates surrounding the key concepts of identity, becoming, agency and ethical responsibility – specifically in terms of a ''non-sovereign self''. Non-sovereignty highlights how thought, language, and ultimately one''s very survival depend on social relationships. While non-sovereign accounts of human social life have become widely accepted, there is an ongoing debate about definitions and roles of key terms such as ''finitude'' or ''relationality'' and the consequences they have for political thought. Drawing on Hannah Arendt, Judith Butler and Stanley Cavell, this book addresses contemporary theoretical and political debates in a broader comparative perspective and rearticulates the relationship between ethics and politics by highlighting those who are currently excluded from our notions of political community.

Ruling Women, Volume 1: Government, Virtue, And The Female Prince In Seventeenth-century France

Product : Ruling Women, Volume 1: Government, Virtue, And The Female Prince In Seventeenth-century France
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Ruling Women is the first study of its kind devoted to an analysis of the debate concerning government by women in seventeenth-century France. Drawing on a wide range of political, feminist and dramatic texts, Conroy sets out to demonstrate that the dominant discourse which upholds patriarchy at the time is frequently in conflict with alternative discourses which frame gynæcocracy as a feasible, and laudable reality, and which reconfigure (wittingly or unwittingly) the normative paradigm of male authority. Central to the argument is an analysis of how the discourse which constructs government as a male prerogative quite simply implodes when juxtaposed with the traditional political discourse of virtue ethics. In Government, Virtue, and the Female Prince in Seventeenth-Century France, the first volume of the two-volume study, the author examines the dominant discourse which excludes women from political authority before turning to the configuration of women and rulership in the pro-woman and egalitarian discourses of the period. Highly readable and engaging, Conroy''s work will appeal to those interested in the history of women in political thought and the history of feminism, in addition to scholars of seventeenth-century literature and history of ideas.

Politics In India: Structure, Process And Policy

Product : Politics In India: Structure, Process And Policy
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This new edition of this textbook brings together general political theory and the comparative method to interpret socio-political phenomena and issues that have occupied the Indian state and society since 1947. It is an examination of the interaction of the modern state and traditional society in contemporary India and analyses the dilemmas arising out of India?s complex and diverse political process. It shows how modern institutions, strategic reform and policy processes aimed at social change have been installed in the country to make democracy a lasting success. The resilience of India?s modern institutions and the stability of India?s democratic political system are both the outcome of a modernising leadership with deep roots in the traditional society functioning as a innovative and flexible bridge between state and society. The textbook goes beyond India by asking about the implications of the Indian case for the general and comparative theory of the post-colonial state. The factors which might have caused failures in democracy and governance are analysed to be incorporated as variables into a model of democratic governance. That is how this book moves from an analysis of structure and process of politics at the level of the nation, region and locality towards the formulation of policy. This updated new edition considers the changed global role of India, its standing in the G-20 and BRICS, as well as the implications of the Indian general elections 2014 for state and society. New sections on the changing socio-political status of women in India, corruption and terrorism are also included. In addition to pedagogical features such as text boxes, a set of further readings is provided to guide readers who wish to go beyond the remit of this text. The book will be essential reading for of students and researchers in South Asian and Asian studies, political science, development studies, sociology, comparative politics and political theory.

Translating Cultures: An Introduction For Translators, Interpreters And Mediators

Product : Translating Cultures: An Introduction For Translators, Interpreters And Mediators
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : As the 21st century gets into stride so does the call for a discipline combining culture and translation. This second edition of Translating Cultures retains its original aim of putting some rigour and coherence into these fashionable words and lays the foundation for such a discipline. This edition has not only been thoroughly revised, but it has also been expanded. In particular, a new chapter has been added which focuses specifically on training translators for translational and intercultural competencies. The core of the book provides a model for teaching culture to translators, interpreters and other mediators. It introduces the reader to current understanding about culture and aims to raise awareness of the fundamental role of culture in constructing, perceiving and translating reality. Culture is perceived throughout as a system for orienting experience, and a basic presupposition is that the organization of experience is not ''reality'', but rather a simplified model and a ''distortion'' which varies from culture to culture. Each culture acts as a frame within which external signs or ''reality'' are interpreted. The approach is interdisciplinary, taking ideas from contemporary translation theory, anthropology, Bateson''s logical typing and metamessage theories, Bandler and Grinder''s NLP meta-model theory, and Hallidayan functional grammar. Authentic texts and translations are offered to illustrate the various strategies that a cultural mediator can adopt in order to make the different cultural frames he or she is mediating between more explicit.

The book also investigates changes on the structures of power, on the ruling elites and in the localities.

Product : The Unexplained Intellect: Complexity, Time, And The Metaphysics Of Embodied Thought
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The relationship between intelligent systems and their environment is at the forefront of research in cognitive science.The Unexplained Intellect:Complexity, Time, and the Metaphysics of Embodied Thoughtshows how computational complexity theory and analytic metaphysics can together illuminate long-standing questions about the importance of that relationship. It argues that the most basic facts about a mind cannot just be facts about mental states, but must include facts about the dynamic, interactive mental occurrences that take place when a creature encounters its environment.In a discussion that is organised into four clear parts, Christopher Mole begins by examining the mathematics of computational complexity, arguing that the results from complexity theory create a puzzle about how human intelligence could possibly be explained. Mole then uses the tools of analytic metaphysics to draw a distinction between mental states and dynamic mental entities, and shows that, in order to answer the complexity-theoretic puzzle, dynamic entities must be understood to be among the most basic of mental phenomena. The picture of the mind that emerges has important implications for our understanding of intelligence, of action, and of the mind¿s relationship to the passage of time.The Unexplained Intellectis the first book to bring insights from the mathematics of computational complexity to bear in an enquiry into the metaphysics of the mind. It will be essential reading for scholars and researchers in the philosophy of mind and psychology, for cognitive scientists, and for those interested in the philosophical importance of complexity.

Prometheus In Music: Representations Of The Myth In The Romantic Era

Product : Prometheus In Music: Representations Of The Myth In The Romantic Era
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The ancient Greek myth of Prometheus, the primordial Titan who defied the Olympian gods by stealing fire from the heavens as a gift for humanity, enjoyed unprecedented popularity during the Romantic era. An international coterie of writers such as Goethe, Monti, Byron, the Shelleys, Sainte-H?ne, Coleridge, Browning, and Bridges engaged with the legend, while composers such as Beethoven, Reichardt, Schubert, Wolf, Liszt, Hal?, Saint-Saëns, Holm? Faur?Parry, Goldmark, and Bargiel based works of diverse genres on the fable. Romantic authors and composers developed a unique perspective on the myth, emphasizing its themes of rebellion, punishment for transgression and creative autonomy, in great contrast to artists of the preceding era, who more characteristically ignored the tribulations of Prometheus and depicted him as the animator of a naïve, Arcadian mankind who, when awakened from their spiritual dormancy, expressed astonishment at the wonders of nature and paid homage to the Titan as a new god. Paul Bertagnolli charts the progress of the myth during the nineteenth century, as it articulates an extraordinary variety of issues pertaining to culture, society, aesthetics, and philosophy. Drawing on archival research, dance history, sketch studies, literary theory, linear analysis, topos theory, and reception history, individual chapters demonstrate that the legend served as a vehicle to express opinions on subjects as diverse as aristocratic patronage, movements of the body on the public stage, rebellion against political and religious authority, outright atheism, humanitarianism of the German Enlightenment, interest in the music of Greek antiquity, industrialization, nationalism inflamed by war, populism, and the aesthetics of musical form. Composers often resorted to varied and unorthodox musical techniques in order to reflect such remarkable subjects: Beethoven outraged critics by implying a key other than the tonic at the outset of the overture to

Understanding Mozart's Piano Sonatas

Product : Understanding Mozart's Piano Sonatas
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Mozart''s piano sonatas are among the most familiar of his works and stand alongside those of Haydn and Beethoven as staples of the pianist''s repertoire. In this study, John Irving looks at a wide selection of contextual situations for Mozart''s sonatas, focusing on the variety of ways in which they assume identities and achieve meanings. In particular, the book seeks to establish the provisionality of the sonatas'' notated texts, suggesting that the texts are not so much identifiers as possibilities and that their identity resides in the usage. Close attention is paid to reception matters, analytical approaches, organology, the role of autograph manuscripts, early editions and editors, and aspects of historical performance practice - all of which go beyond the texts in opening windows onto Mozart''s sonatas. Treating the sonatas collectively as a repertoire, rather than as individual works, the book surveys broad thematic issues such as the role of historical writing about music in defining a generic space for Mozart''s sonatas, their construction within pedagogical traditions, the significance of sound as opposed to sight in these works (and in particular their sound on fortepianos of the later eighteenth-century) , and the creative role of the performer in their representation beyond the frame of the text. Drawing together and synthesizing this wealth of material, Irving provides an invaluable reference source for those already familiar with this repertoire.

Furtwängler On Music: Essays And Addresses By Wilhelm Furtwängler

Product : Furtwängler On Music: Essays And Addresses By Wilhelm Furtwängler
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Wilhelm Furtwängler left not only some of the greatest interpretations of operatic and symphonic music on record, but also expressed his views on musical issues of the moment in a number of outspoken essays and talks. His writings range from practical matters of performance and interpretation to aesthetic reflections on what he saw as the alarming direction in which music was developing in the wake of Schoenberg and the twelve-tone system of composition. Professor Ronald Taylor has here, for the first time, translated and annotated a selection of Furtwängler''s writings covering the four decades from the First World War to the conductor''s death in 1954, and prefaced them with an essay on Furtwängler''s controversial career and complicated personality. The result is a collection of stimulating pieces with a claim on our attention, made all the greater for reflecting the musical and philosophical ideals of one of the great conductors of the twentieth century.
