Creating Freedom: Power, Control, And The Fight For Our Future

Product : Creating Freedom: Power, Control, And The Fight For Our Future
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The ideal of freedom is at the heart of our political and economic system. It is foundational to our sense of justice, our way of life, our conception of what it is to be human. But are we free in the way that we think we are? In Creating Freedom, Raoul Martinez brings together a torrent of mind-expanding ideas, facts, and arguments to dismantle sacred myths central to our society—myths about free will, free markets, free media, and free elections. From the lottery of our birth to the consent-manufacturing influence of concentrated power, this far-reaching manifesto lifts the veil on the mechanisms of control that pervade our lives. It shows that the more we understand how the world shapes us, the more effectively we can shape the world. A highly original exploration of the most urgent questions of our time, Creating Freedom reveals that we are far less free than we like to think, but it also shows that freedom is something we can create together. In fact, our very survival may depend on our doing so.

Extramural Shakespeare

Product : Extramural Shakespeare
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Extramural Shakespeare makes a bold contribution to the recent debates about Shakespeare’s place in American culture in the new millennium. Informed by cultural studies discussions about elite and mass culture and drawing upon the unique, transdisciplinary methods associated with that field, this study argues that Shakespeare should be considered instead as public culture. Denise Albanese argues that due to the emergence of mass education in the twentieth century, Shakespeare has become public property, even though official discourse and film treat his texts as if they belong to elites.  Extramural Shakespeare demonstrates that reading Shakespeare dialectically attends to the hopes for a better world his texts might still represent.

Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar

Product : Loving Pablo, Hating Escobar
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : A revealing memoir of Colombian television journalist Virginia Vallejo''s affair with the King of Cocaine, notorious Medellín drug lord, Pablo Escobar. Soon to be a major motion picture starring Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz. At 33, Virginia Vallejo was media elite. A renowned anchorwoman and socialite, and a model who appeared on magazine covers worldwide, Vallejo was the darling of Colombia''s most powerful politicians and billionaires. Meeting Pablo Escobar in 1983, and becoming his mistress for many years, she witnessed the rise of a drug empire that was characterized by Escobar''s far-reaching political corruption, his extraordinary wealth, and a network of violent crime that lasted until his death in 1993.      In this highly personal and insightful story, Vallejo characterizes the duality of Escobar''s charm and charisma as a benefactor to the people of Colombia, and the repulsion of his criminal actions as a tyrannical terrorist and enemy of many world leaders. Told from the present day perspective, and reflecting on her cooperation with the US Department of Justice, in 2006, as she testified against high-ranking Colombian ministers on trial for conspiracy and murder, Vallejo offers a compelling work of intimate reflection and critical journalism--a unique perspective on the Colombian drug wars and the endlessly fascinating figure, Pablo Escobar.

Schedule-Based Modeling of Transportation Networks: Theory and applications

Product : Schedule-Based Modeling of Transportation Networks: Theory and applications
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Schedule-Based Modeling of Transportation Networks: Theory and Applications follows the book Schedule-Based Dynamic Transit Modeling, published in this series in 2004, recognizing the critical role that schedules play in transportation systems.Conceived for the simulation of transit systems, in the last few years the schedule-based approach has been expanded and applied to operational planning of other transportation schedule services besides mass transit, e.g. freight transport. This innovative approach allows forecasting the evolution over time of the on-board loads on the services and their time-varying performance, using credible user behavioral hypotheses. It opens new frontiers in transportation modeling to support network design, timetable setting, and investigation of congestion effects, as well as the assessment of such new technologies, such as users system information (ITS technologies).The contributors and editors of the book are leading researchers in the field of transportation, and in this volume they build a solid foundation for developing still more sophisticated models. These future models of scheduled transportation systems will continue to improve the accuracy and sensitivity desired in forecasting the performance of public transport systems.

Jurgen Habermas: Critic in the Public Sphere

Product : Jurgen Habermas: Critic in the Public Sphere
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The most important intellectual in the Federal Republic of Germany for the past three decades, Habermas has been a seminal contributor to fields ranging from sociology and political science to philosophy and cultural studies. Although he has stood at the centre of concern in his native land, he has been less readily accepted outside Germany, particularly in the humanities. His theoretical work postulates the centrality of communication and understanding, and as such his strategy of debate is marked by a politically informed unity of theory and practice.Holub''s book is the first detailed account of the major debates in which Habermas has engaged since the early sixties. It stems from the conviction that his critics have not understood the political strategy behind his various interventions, or the consistency that informs his intellectual activities.Habermas is viewed in dialogue with important philosophical, sociological and political currents in West Germany. Holub demonstrates how Habermas pursues a course that incorporates various aspects of his opponents'' positions, while simultaneously defending perceived threats to democracy and open discussion.

The Making of Stonehenge

Product : The Making of Stonehenge
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Every generation has created its own interpretation of Stonehenge, but rarely do these relate to the physical realities of the monument. Rodney Castleden begins with those elements which made possible the building of this vast stone circle: the site, the materials and the society that undertook the enormous task of transporting and raising the great vertical stones, then capping them, all to a carefully contrived plan.What emerges from this detailed examination is a much fuller sense of Stonehenge, both in relation to all the similar sites close by, and in terms of the uses to which it was put. Castleden suggests that there is no one ''meaning'' or ''purpose'' for Stonehenge, that from its very beginning it has filled a variety of needs. The Romans saw it as a centre of resistance; the antiquaries who ''rediscovered'' it in the seventeenth century saw a long line of continuity leading back into the nation''s past. The archaeologists see it as a subject for rational, scientific investigation; The National Trust and English Heritage view it as an unfailing magnet for visitors; UNESCO has declared it a World Heritage Site, the cultural property of the whole of humanity. Lost to view amid competing interests over the millenia are the uses it has served for those who live within its penumbra, for whom Stonehenge has never been ''lost'' or ''rediscovered''. It exists in local myth and legend, stretching back beyond history.

Humphrey considers both the unmaking of the world through torture, war, urbicide and ethnic cleansing and the resultant remaking of the world through testimony and witnessing in the forums of truth commissions and trials. The discussion thus moves from terror to trauma.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book examines and interprets a wide range of approaches to the causes of violence and conflict.The causes of violence and conflict are often left untheorized, or they are discussed as an existent problem assumed to be an inevitable part of human interaction. Adopting an accessible approach, this volume presents readers with a clear understanding of the causes of violence and conflict by highlighting their evolutionary roots and illustrating them with in-depth case studies and examples.Tim Jacoby addresses the fragmented nature of the literature on conflict theory by drawing upon a wide range of disciplinary traditions, seeking to reflect the fact that international relations, history, economics, development, politics and sociology all share a long-standing interest in the study of conflict and violence and that common concerns make interdisciplinary stimulating and productive.Understanding Conflict & Violencewill be of interest to students and scholars across the disciplines of international relations, history, economics, development, politics and sociology.

Young Citizens In The Digital Age: Political Engagement, Young People And New Media

Product : Young Citizens In The Digital Age: Political Engagement, Young People And New Media
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : A social anxiety currently pervades the political classes of the western world, arising from the perception that young people have become disaffected with liberal democratic politics. Voter turnout among 18-25 year olds continues to be lower than other age groups and they are less likely to join political parties. This is not, however, proof that young people are not interested in politics per se but is evidence that they are becoming politically socialized within a new media environment.This shift poses a significant challenge to politicians who increasingly have to respond to a technologically mediated lifestyle politics that celebrates lifestyle diversity, personal disclosure and celebrity. This book explores alternative approaches for engaging and understanding young people¿s political activity and looks at the adoption of information and ICTs as a means to facilitate the active engagement of young people in democratic societies.Young Citizens in a Digital Agepresents new research and the first comprehensive analysis of ICTs, citizenship and young people from an international group of leading scholars. It is an important book for students and researchers of citizenship and ICTs within the fields of sociology, politics, social policy and communication studies among others.

Democracy Promotion In The Eu?s Neighbourhood: From Leverage To Governance?

Product : Democracy Promotion In The Eu?s Neighbourhood: From Leverage To Governance?
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : EU external democracy promotion has traditionally been based on ¿linkage¿, i.e. bottom-up support for democratic forces in third countries, and ¿leverage¿, i.e. the top-down inducement of political elites towards democratic reforms through political conditionality. The advent of the European Neighbourhood Policy and new forms of association have introduced a new, third model of democracy promotion which rests in functional cooperation between administrations. This volume comparatively defines and assesses these three models of external democracy promotion in the EU¿s relations with its eastern and southern neighbours. It argues that while ¿linkage¿ has hitherto failed to produce tangible outcomes, and the success of ¿leverage¿ has basically been tied to an EU membership perspective, the ¿governance¿ model of democracy promotion bears greater potential beyond the circle of candidate countries. This third approach, while not tackling the core institutions of the political system as such, but rather promoting transparency, accountability, and participation at the level of state administration, may turn out to remain the EU¿s most tangible form of democratic governance promotion in the future.This book was originally published as a special issue ofDemocratization.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The twentieth century has been labelled the ¿century of genocide¿, and according to estimates, more than 250 million civilians were victims of genocide and mass atrocities during this period. This book provides one of the first regional perspectives on mass atrocities in Asia, by exploring the issue through two central themes.Bringing together experts in genocide studies and area specialists, the book looks at the legacy of past genocides and mass atrocities, with case studies on East Timor, Cambodia and Indonesia. It explores the enduring legacies of trauma and societal divisions, the complex and continuing impacts of past mass violence, and the role of transitional justice in the aftermath of mass atrocities in Asia. Understanding these complex legacies is crucial for the region to build a future that acknowledges the past. The book goes on to consider the prospects and challenges for preventing future mass atrocities in Asia, and globally. It discusses both regional and global factors that may impact on preventing future mass atrocities in Asia, and highlights the value of a regional perspective in mass atrocity prevention.Providing a detailed examination of genocide and mass atrocities through the themes of legacies and prevention, the book is an important contribution to Asian Studies and Security Studies.

This edited collection focuses on children''s digital cultures, specifically examining the role of play and creativity in learning with these new technologies.The chapters in this book were contributed by an international range of respected researchers, who seek to extend our understandings of children''s interactions with new media, both within and outside of school. They address and provide evidence for continuing debates around the following questions: What notions of creativity are useful in our fields? How does an understanding of play inform analysis of children''s engagement with digital cultures? How might school practice take account of out-of-school learning in relation to digital cultures? How can we understand children''s engagements with digital technologies in commercialized spaces?Offering current research, theoretical debate and empirical studies, this intriguing text will challenge the thinking of scholars and teachers alike as it explores the evolving nature of play within the media landscape of the twenty-first century.

Description : How did humankind deal with the extreme challenges of the last Ice Age? How have the relatively benign post-Ice Age conditions affected the evolution and spread of humanity across the globe? By setting our genetic history in the context of climate change during prehistory, the origin of many features of our modern world are identified and presented in this illuminating book. It reviews the aspects of our physiology and intellectual development that have been influenced by climatic factors, and how features of our lives - diet, language and the domestication of animals - are also the product of the climate in which we evolved. In short: climate change in prehistory has in many ways made us what we are today. Climate Change in Prehistory weaves together studies of the climate with anthropological, archaeological and historical studies, and will fascinate all those interested in the effects of climate on human development and history.

Islam under Siege: Living Dangerously in a Post- Honor World

Product : Islam under Siege: Living Dangerously in a Post- Honor World
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In this groundbreaking book, Akbar Ahmed, one of the world''s leading authorities on Islam, who has worked in the Muslim world but lives in the West, explains what is going wrong in his society by referring to Islamic history and beliefs. Employing theological and anthropological perspectives, he attempts to answer the questions that people in the West are asking about Islam: Why do they hate us? Is Islam compatible with democracy? Does Islam subjugate women? Does the Quran preach violence? These important questions are of relevance to Muslims and to non-Muslims alike. Islam Under Siege points out the need for, and provides the route to, the dialogue of civilizations. September 11, 2001, underlined the role of Islam in our time. In its demographic spread, its political span, and its religious commitment, Islam will be an increasingly forceful presence on the world stage in the twenty-first century. While some scholars predict that there will be a clash of civilizations, others see a need for a dialogue of civilizations. This book will help students, scholars of politics, sociology, international relations, and cultural studies, and reporters as well as a more general audience interested in some of the most important issues of our time.

Immunitas: The Protection and Negation of Life

Product : Immunitas: The Protection and Negation of Life
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book by Roberto Esposito - a leading Italian political philosopher - is a highly original exploration of the relationship between human bodies and societies. The original function of law, even before it was codified, was to preserve peaceful cohabitation between people who were exposed to the risk of destructive conflict. Just as the human body''s immune system protects the organism from deadly incursions by viruses and other threats, law also ensures the survival of the community in a life-threatening situation. It protects and prolongs life. But the function of law as a form of immunization points to a more disturbing consideration. Like the individual body, the collective body can be immunized from the perceived danger only by allowing a little of what threatens it to enter its protective boundaries. This means that in order to escape the clutches of death, life is forced to incorporate within itself the lethal principle. Starting from this reflection on the nature of immunization, Esposito offers a wide-ranging analysis of contemporary biopolitics. Never more than at present has the demand for immunization come to characterize all aspects of our existence. The more we feel at risk of being infiltrated and infected by foreign elements, the more the life of the individual and society closes off within its protective boundaries, forcing us to choose between a self-destructive outcome and a more radical alternative based on a new conception of community.

Au Pair

Product : Au Pair
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Many families leave their children for years to be looked after by young people about whom they know next to nothing, from places they have barely heard of. Who are these au pairs, why do they come and what is their experience of this arrangement? Do they, for their part, find that they are treated as one of the family, and would they even want to be? After a year of careful research, this book shows how most of our assumptions and expectations about au pairs are wrong. This is the first book devoted to the lives of au pairs, their leisure as well as their work time. We see this world from the eyes of the visitors, and their unique perspective on what lies at the heart of our family life. The book does not flinch from documenting the realities of the situation Ð the racism and the problematic behaviour of the au pairs themselves, as much as the ignorance and exploitation they can be subject to. The book is a case study in how to come to feel modern life empathetically from the viewpoint of one of those many migrant groups we take for granted and rely on but rarely try to understand.

Adults' Mathematical Thinking and Emotions: A Study of Numerate Practice

Product : Adults' Mathematical Thinking and Emotions: A Study of Numerate Practice
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The crisis around teaching and learning of mathematics and its use in everyday life and work relate to a number of issues. These include: The doubtful transferability of school maths to real life contexts, the declining participation in A level and higher education maths courses, the apparent exclusion of some groups, such as women and the aversion of many people to maths. This book addresses these issues by considering a number of key problems in maths education and numeracy:*differences among social groups, especially those related to gender and social class*the inseparability of cognition and emotion in mathematical activity*the understanding of maths anxiety in traditional psychological, psychoanalytical and feminist theories*how adults'' numerate thinking and performance must be understood in context.The author''s findings have practical applications in education and training, such as clarifying problems of the transfer of learning, and of countering maths anxiety.

Description : As night fell in Picardy on Thursday 24 October 1415, Henry V and his English troops, worn down by their long march after the taking of Harfleur and diminished by the dysentery they had suffered there, can little have dreamt that the battle of the next day would provide them with one of the most complete victories ever won. Anne Curry''s startling history recreates the campaign and battle from the perspectives of the English and the French. Only now, through an in-depth investigation of the contemporary narrative sources as well as the administrative records, and through a new look at the terrain where the battle was fought, can we come to firmer conclusions on what exactly happened, and why. This book, based on years of painstaking research and reflection, makes clear the genius of Henry V as a military leader, and the strengths and capabilities of the English army which he commanded. There can be no doubt of the desire of the French to resist him and to protect their homeland from his invasion. The French fought bravely and to the death. So what went wrong for the French? This question, and many more, are answered in this lively new history.

The Campaign of Waterloo, 1815: a Political & Military History from the French Perspective

Product : The Campaign of Waterloo, 1815: a Political & Military History from the French Perspective
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The Emperor's fall by one of his own generals Posterity has been granted several renowned historians of the Napoleonic Wars and the author of this book, Antoine-Henri Jomini, is notable among them-for he not only chronicled its history, but was an active participant in its events. Service with Napoleon saw him in action at Austerlitz, Ulm, Jena, at Eylau where he was awarded the Legion of Honour and at Lutzen and Bautzen. His work, The Art of War is an essential treatise on the waging of war in the early nineteenth century and is required reading for any student of the period. He is credited as one of the founding fathers of modern strategy. Jomini's take on the campaign of Waterloo is valuable to modern students for all the reasons stated, but also because it considers the campaign primarily and inevitably from the French perspective upon which his experience of warfare was based. Available in soft cover and hard cover with dust jacket for collectors.
