A New Politics from the Left

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT2018-04-17T04:00:00Z


(image) (image)  
Millions passionately desire a viable alternative to austerity and neoliberalism, but they are sceptical of traditional leftist top-down state solutions. 

In this urgent polemic, Hilary Wainwright argues that this requires a new politics for the left that comes from the bottom up, based on participatory democracy and the everyday knowledge and creativity of each individual. Political leadership should be about facilitation and partnership, not expert

Standpoints: 10 Old Ideas In a New World

Tue, 17 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT2018-04-17T04:00:00Z


(image) (image)  

Self-help gurus, life coaches and business consultants love to tell us that we must strive for constant self-improvement to realize our full potential and become truly happy. But it doesn't seem to work - for many of us, life still seems hollow and meaningless. So focused are we on personal development and material possessions that we've overlooked the things that make life truly fulfilling and worthwhile. 

So how do we figure out what's really worth

Mon, 16 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT2018-04-16T04:00:00Z


(image) (image)  

The Immigration Act of 1965 was one of the most consequential laws ever passed in the United States and immigration policy continues to be one of the most contentious areas of American politics. As a "nation of immigrants," the United States has a long and complex history of immigration programs and controls which are deeply connected to the shape of American society today.

This volume makes sense of the political history and the social impacts of

Twitter, 2nd Edition

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT2018-04-10T04:00:00Z


(image) (image)  
Twitter is a household name, discussed for its role in national elections, natural disasters, and political movements, as well as for what some malign as narcissistic “chatter.” The first edition of Murthy’s balanced and incisive book pioneered the study of this medium as a serious platform worthy of scholarly attention. Much has changed since Twitter’s infancy, although it is more relevant than ever to our social, political, and economic lives.

Another Science is Possible: A Manifesto for Slow Science

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT2018-02-28T05:00:00Z


(image) (image)  
Like fast food, fast science is quickly prepared, not particularly good, and it clogs up the system. Efforts to tackle our most pressing issues have been stymied by conflict within the scientific community and mixed messages symptomatic of a rushed approach. What is more, scientific research is being shaped by the bubbles and crashes associated with economic speculation and the market. A focus on conformism, competitiveness, opportunism and flexibility

Are Black Men Doomed?

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT2018-02-28T05:00:00Z


(image) (image)  

Life for too many African American men is a battle with extreme disadvantage, a fight for survival, and a struggle for dignity in a society which labels them a "problem." For more than 30 years, most of the effort put toward addressing the crisis of Black men has centered on what they must do to improve their condition. Without neglecting that perspective, Are Black men doomed? radically shifts the focus. 

This urgent intervention explores how a damning

The Digital Condition

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT2018-02-21T05:00:00Z


(image) (image)  
Our daily lives, our culture and our politics are now shaped by the digital condition as large numbers of people involve themselves in contentious negotiations of meaning in ever more dimensions of life, from the trivial to the profound. They are making use of the capacities of complex communication infrastructures, currently dominated by social mass media such as Twitter and Facebook, on which they have come to depend.

From the Factory to the Metropolis: Essays Volume 2

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT2018-02-21T05:00:00Z


(image) (image)  

This second volume of a new three-part series of Antonio Negri's work is focussed on the consequences of the rapid process of deindustrialisation that has occurred across the West in recent years.

In this volume Negri investigates exactly what happens when the class subjects of industrial capitalism are demobilised and the factories close. Evidently capital continues to make profit, but how and where? According to Negri, the creation of value extends

Pain: A Sociological Introduction

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 05:00:00 GMT2018-02-06T05:00:00Z

Pain in one form or another is probably the most common symptom presented to medical and healthcare professionals. Long a subject of biomedical interest, more recent biopsychosocial theories have extended the study of pain as a concept which is highly individual in the way it is experienced. Today's landscape offers a broad array of approaches to understanding pain and, crucially, to alleviating its impact.
