Thank you for being late : an optimist's guide to thriving in the age of accelerations
Friedman, Thomas L., author
New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016
Part I: Reflecting. Thank you for being late -- Part II: Accelerating. What the hell happened in 2007? ; Moore's law ; The supernova ; The market ; Mother Nature -- Part III: Innovating. Just too damned fast ; Turning AI into IA ; Control vs. Kaos ; Mother Nature as political mentor ; Is God in cyberspace? ; Always looking for Minnesota ; You can go home again (and you should!) -- Part IV: Anchoring. From Minnesota to the world and back.
"We all sense it--something big is going on. You feel it in your workplace. You feel it when you talk to your kids. You can't miss it when you read the newspapers or watch the news. Our lives are being transformed in so many realms all at once--and it is dizzying. In Thank You for Being Late, a work unlike anything he has attempted before, Thomas L. Friedman exposes the tectonic movements that are reshaping the world today and explains how to get the most out of them and cushion their worst impacts. You will never look at the world the same way again after you read this book; how you understand the news, the work you do, the education your kids need, the investments your employer has to make, and the moral and geopolitical choices our country has to navigate will all be refashioned by Friedman's original analysis. Friedman begins by taking us into his own way of looking at the world--how he writes a column. After a quick tutorial, he proceeds to write what could only be called a giant column about the twenty-first century. His thesis: to understand the twenty-first century, you need to understand that the planets three largest forces--Moore's law (technology), the Market (globalization), and Mother Nature (climate change and biodiversity loss)--are accelerating all at once. These accelerations are transforming five key realms: the workplace, politics, geopolitics, ethics, and community. Why is this happening? As Friedman shows, the exponential increase in computing power defined by Moore's law has a lot to do with it. The year 2007 was a major inflection point: the release of the iPhone, together with advances in silicon chips, software, storage, sensors, and networking, created a new technology platform. Friedman calls this platform "the supernova"--for it is an extraordinary release of energy that is reshaping everything from how we hail a taxi to the fate of nations to our most intimate relationships. It is creating vast new opportunities for individuals and small groups to save the world--or to destroy it. Thank You for Being Late is a work of contemporary history that serves as a field manual for how to write and think about this era of accelerations. It's also an argument for "being late"--for pausing to appreciate this amazing historical epoch we're passing through and to reflect on its possibilities and dangers. To amplify this point, Friedman revisits his Minnesota hometown in his moving concluding chapters; there, he explores how communities can create a "topsoil of trust" to anchor their increasingly diverse and digital populations. With his trademark vitality, wit, and optimism, Friedman shows that we can overcome the multiple stresses of an age of accelerations--if we slow down, if we dare to be late and use the time to reimagine work, politics, and community Thank You for Being Late is Friedman's most ambitious book--and an essential guide to the present and the future."--Dust jacket.

Rebelocracy : social order in the Colombian civil war
Arjona, Ana, author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Machine generated contents note: Table of contents; List of tables and figures; Acknowledgements; Abbreviations and glossary of terms; 1. Introduction; 2. Wartime social order: what is it and how does it vary?; 3. A theory of social order in civil war; 4. Research design: conflict zones in Colombia; 5. The determinants of social order; 6. Creating rebelocracy, aliocracy, and disorder; 7. How local institutions matter: a process-driven natural experiment in Viota; 8. Testing the microfoundations: social order and recruitment; 9. Conclusion.
"Conventional wisdom portrays war zones as chaotic and anarchic. In reality, however, they are often orderly. This work investigates theoretically and empirically the emergence and functioning of social order in conflict zones. By theorizing the interaction between combatants and civilians and how they impact wartime institutions, the study delves into rebel behavior, civilian agency and their impact on the conduct of war. Based on years of fieldwork in Colombia, the theory is tested with qualitative and quantitative evidence on communities, armed groups, and individuals in conflict zones. The study shows how armed groups strive to rule civilians, and how the latter influence the terms of that rule. The theory and empirical results illuminate our understanding of civil war, institutions, local governance, non-violent resistance and the emergence of political order"--

"In Social Regulation : Case Studies from Tibetan History the editors Jeannine Bischoff and Saul Mullard present a collection of studies of the mechanisms that regulated Tibetan societies from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Social regulations controlled, shaped and perpetuated Tibetan societies, but close analyses of these historical processes are rarely to be seen in 'event history' writing. The contributions to this volume explore the theme of social regulation from the perspectives of religion, politics and administration, while addressing issues of morals and values. Covering a wide range of Tibetan societies, the geographical scope of this volume extends from the Central Tibetan area to the southeastern Tibetan borderlands and the Himalayan kingdoms of Nepal and Sikkim. Contributors are: Alice Travers, Berthe Jansen, Charles Ramble, Fernanda Pirie, Jeannine Bischoff, Kalsang Norbu Gurung, Kensaku Okawa, Nyima Drandul, Peter Schwieger, Saul Mullard, Yuri Komatsubara"--Provided by publisher.

Representing ethnicity in contemporary French visual culture
McGonagle, Joseph, author
Manchester : Manchester University Press 2017
"The issue of ethnicity in France, and how ethnicities are represented there visually, remain one of the most important and polemical aspects of French post-colonial politics and society. Representing ethnicity in contemporary French visual culture is the first book to analyse how a range of different ethnicities have been represented across contemporary French visual culture. Via a wide series of case studies - ranging from the worldwide hit film Amelie to France's popular TV series Plus belle la vie - it explores how ethnicities have been represented in contemporary France across a wide variety of different media. Its innovative, interdisciplinary approach and novel subject matter will complement university courses that focus on contemporary French society and visual culture. It will interest those researching and studying French and European film and photography, ethnicity in post-colonial France and visual culture generally."

The shaping of Tuscany : landscape and society between tradition and modernity
Gaggio, Dario, 1966- author
Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Machine generated contents note: Introduction; 1. Race, nation, land: reclaiming Tuscany's hill country under Fascism; 2. Newer beginnings: the landscape of social strife; 3. Left behind: the rural exodus; 4. The uses of emptiness: rural Tuscany after the exodus; 5. The farmhouse and the museum: Tuscany as patrimony; 6. Searching for the Bel Paesaggio: norming and litigating the landscape; Conclusion; Index.
"To its many tourists and visitors, the Tuscan landscape evokes a sense of timelessness and harmony. Yet, the upheavals of the twentieth century profoundly reshaped rural Tuscany. Uncovering the experiences of ordinary people, Professor Gaggio traces the history of Tuscany to show how the region's modern conflicts and aspirations have contributed to forging its modern-day beauty. We learn how the rise of Fascism was particularly violent in rural Tuscany, and how struggles between Communist sharecroppers and their landlords raged long after the end of the dictatorship. The flight from the farms in the 1950s and 1960s disorientated many Tuscans, prompting ambitious development projects, and in more recent decades the emergence of the heritage industry has raised the spectre of commodification. This book tells the story of how many Tuscans themselves have become tourists in their own land - forced to adapt to rapid change and reinvent their landscape in the process"--

Prostitution et Révolution : les femmes publiques dans la cité républicaine (1789-1804)
Plumauzille, Clyde, author
Ceyzérieu [France] : Champ Vallon, 
"Dénoncée comme la part maudite mais nécessaire de l'urbanité, la prostitution est dépénalisée en 1791. Dépassant les fantasmes et les préjugés qui trop souvent résument l'histoire de la prostitution révolutionnaire, cette immersion dans le monde des prostituées et de ceux qui ordonnent leur activité interroge le rapport entre le moment révolutionnaire et l'activité prostitutionnelle. Que fut la prostitution au tournant des XVIIIe et XIXe siècles, alors que sonne le glas des grands bordels de l'Ancien Régime ? Quel rôle la Révolution a-t-elle joué à son égard ? Sa dépénalisation a-t-elle constitué une révolution ? Explorer cet angle mort de la recherche redonne vie aux modes d'existence des prostituées, met au jour les origines des politiques contemporaines de la prostitution et exhume un moment de l'histoire de la citoyenneté encore largement méconnu. Dans cette enquête où se côtoient femmes publiques, "honnêtes citoyens", policiers et hommes de loi, la prostitution révèle les frontières morales du projet révolutionnaire et propose une autre histoire de la sexualité en Révolution. Cette histoire est celle d'une libéralisation paradoxale de la prostitution qui façonne les contours d'une catégorie de "citoyennes diminuées" dans la cité républicaine."--Back cover.

Transcultural negotiations of gender : studies in (be)longing
Saugata Bhaduri, Indrani Mukherjee, editors
New Delhi : Springer, 
Transcultural Negotiations of Gender probes into how gender is negotiated along the two axes of 'belonging' and 'longing'- the twin desires of being located within a cultural milieu, while yearning for either what has passed by or what is yet to come. It also probes into the category of 'transculturality' itself, by examining how not only does it pertain to the coming together of cultures from diverse spatial locations, but how shifts over time and changing performative modes and technological means of articulation, within what may be presumed to be the same culture, can also lead to the 'transcultural'. The volume comprises four sections. Part I, '(Be)longing in Time', examines negotiation of gender through transcultural acts of myths, rituals and religious practices being revised and revisited over time. Part II, '(Be)longing in Space', studies how gender is renegotiated when people from different spaces interact, as also when public spaces and domains themselves become sites of such negotiations. In Part III, 'Performing (Be)longing', such transcultural negotiations are located in the context of changing modes of performance, considering particularly that gender itself is performative. The final section, 'Modernity, Technology and (Be)longing', traces how gender becomes transculturally negotiated in a space like India, with the advent of modernity and its companion technology.

"From the penthouse to the sewers--the political geography of the vertical city Vertical is a brilliant re-imagining of the world we live in. Today we live in a world that can no longer be read as a two-dimensional map. In Vertical Stephen Graham rewrites the city at every level, calling for a a new understanding of our surroundings that takes into account above and below: why Dubai has been built to be seen from GoogleEarth; how the superrich in Sao Paulo live their penthouse lives far from the street; why London billionaires build vast subterranean basements rather than move house. Vertical will make you look at the city anew: from the viewfinders of drones, satellites, from the top of skyscrapers, at street-level and from underground bunkers: this is a new politics of space and geography"--

Bombs, bullets, and politicians : France's response to terrorism
Chowanietz, Christophe, 1972- author
Chicago : McGill-Queen's University Press, 2016
"Bombs, Bullets and Politicians: France's Response to Terrorism aims at understanding what happens to Western democracies and their political elites when they confront a terrorist crisis. Through extensive analysis of French political response to terrorism (as well as comparative examples from Germany, Spain, the UK and the United States) author Christophe Chowanietz explores how terrorism can provoke political consensus and rallies around the flag in some instances and divisiveness and criticism in others. To quote the author: "Bombs, Bullets and Politicians explores how terrorism, which is in essence a negation of the political debate at the heart of representative democracies, alters the behaviour of the political elite and affects the overall dynamic of party politics. Whether it shuts down party politics and brings the political debate to a standstill or on the contrary exacerbates the tension between the government and the opposition, terrorism never fails to disrupt the political game in profound ways." The opening chapters provide important context in two key areas: defining terrorism and understanding party politics in democracies. From here the manuscript moves on to discuss issues of national security in western democracies and comparative examination of key events between 1990-2006 in order to capture both pre- and post-9/11 periods for the study. The latter chapters provide an in-depth case study of France covering the period from 1980 through to the present and including the most recent Paris attacks."--

The way of the strangers : encounters with the Islamic State
Wood, Graeme (Journalist), author
New York : Random House, 
The Islamic State view of humanity -- A note on terminology -- Prologue -- The chosen sect -- Madness and methodology -- Musa cerantonio -- Yahya the American -- A dream deferred -- Dissent -- The war of the end of time -- Afterlife.
"Tens of thousands of men and women have left comfortable, privileged lives to join the Islamic State and kill for it. To them, its violence is beautiful and holy, and the caliphate a fulfillment of prophecy and the only place on earth where they can live and die as Muslims. The Way of the Strangers is an intimate journey into the minds of the Islamic State's true believers. From the streets of Cairo to the mosques of London, Wood interviews supporters, recruiters, and sympathizers of the group. We meet an Egyptian tailor who once made bespoke suits for Paul Newman and now wants to live, finally, under Shariah; a Japanese convert who believes that the eradication of borders--one of the Islamic State's proudest achievements--is a religious imperative; and a charming, garrulous Australian preacher who translates the group's sermons and threats into English and is accused of recruiting for the organization. We also learn about a prodigy of Islamic rhetoric, now stripped of the citizenship of the nation of his birth and determined to see it drenched in blood. Wood speaks with non#x0;Islamic State Muslim scholars and jihadists, and explores the group's idiosyncratic, coherent approach to Islam. The Islamic State is bent on murder and apocalypse, but its followers find meaning and fellowship in its utopian dream. Its first caliph, Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, has declared that he is the sole legitimate authority for Muslims worldwide. The theology, law, and emotional appeal of the Islamic State are key to understanding it--and predicting what its followers will do next. Through character study and analysis, Wood provides a clear-eyed look at a movement that has inspired so many people to abandon or uproot their families. Many seek death--and they will be the terror threat of the next decade, as they strike back against the countries fighting their caliphate. Just as Lawrence Wright's The Looming Tower informed our understanding of Al Qaida, Graeme Wood's The Way of the Strangers will shape how we see a new generation of terrorists."-- Provided by publisher.

"This collection of reports and essays explores police violence against Black, Brown, Indigenous and other marginalized communities, miscarriages of justice, and failures of token accountability and reform measures. It also makes a compelling and provocative argument against calling the police. Contributions cover a broad range of issues including the killing by police of Black men and women, police violence against Latino and Indigenous communities, law enforcement treatment of pregnant people and those with mental illness, and the impact of racist police violence on parenting, as well as specific stories such as a Detroit police conspiracy to slap murder convictions on young Black men using police informants, and the failure of Chicago’s much-touted Independent Police Review Authority, the body supposedly responsible for investigating police misconduct."--

The truth about crime : sovereignty, knowledge, social order
Comaroff, Jean, author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2016
Crime, capital, and the metaphysics of disorder: an overview, in three movements -- Crime, policing, and the making of modernity: the state, sovereignty, and the il/legal -- The order of things to come: crime-and-policing in the present continuous forensic fantasy and the political economy of representation: scenes from the brave noir world -- Law-making, law-breaking, and law-enforcement: five uneasy pieces -- Divine detection: policing at the edge -- Imposture, law, and the policing of personhood: the return of Khulekani Khumalo, zombie captive -- Figuring crime: quantifacts, mythostats, and the production of the un/real -- Outsourcing justice, privatizing protection: practices of popular sovereignty -- Sharp endings: a pointed afterimage.
In this book, renowned anthropologists Jean and John L. Comaroff make a startling but absolutely convincing claim about our modern era: it is not by our arts, our politics, or our science that we understand ourselves it is by our crimes. Surveying an astonishing range of forms of crime and policing from petty thefts to the multibillion-dollar scams of too-big-to-fail financial institutions to the collateral damage of war they take readers into the disorder of the late modern world. Looking at recent transformations in the triangulation of capital, the state, and governance that have led to an era where crime and policing are ever more complicit, they offer a powerful meditation on the new forms of sovereignty, citizenship, class, race, law, and political economy of representation that have arisen. To do so, the Comaroffs draw on their vast knowledge of South Africa, especially, and its struggle to build a democracy founded on the rule of law out of the wreckage of long years of violence and oppression. There they explore everything from the fascination with the supernatural in policing to the extreme measures people take to prevent home invasion, drawing illuminating comparisons to the United States and United Kingdom. Going beyond South Africa, they offer a global criminal anthropology that attests to criminality as the constitutive fact of contemporary life, the vernacular by which politics are conducted, moral panics voiced, and populations ruled.

Revolution, defeat and theoretical underdevelopment : Russia, Turkey, Spain, Bolivia
Goldner, Loren, author
Boston : Brill, 
Introduction -- The agrarian question in the Russian Revolution: from material community to productivism, and back -- 'Socialism in one country' before Stalin, and the origins of reactionary 'anti-imperialism': the case of Turkey, 1917-25 -- The Spanish Revolution, past and future: grandeur and poverty of anarchism: how the working class takes over (or doesn't), then and now -- Anti-capitalism or anti-imperialism? Interwar authoritarian and fascist sources of a reactionary ideology: the case of the Bolivian MNR.
The historical studies presented here examine four ideologies - Leninism, Trotskyism, anarchism, and anti-imperialism - still with us, however different and diffuse in form. They are a contribution to the worldwide Marx renaissance of recent decades which has helped clear away the legacies of the Second, Third and Fourth Internationals, not to mention of the 'real existing socialism' of the Soviet Union and its bastard progeny. 00These revolutionary predecessors did not fail because 'they had the wrong ideas'; in contrast to today, they were merely embedded in an earlier dynamic where capitalism, globally, was not yet fully dominant. The cases of Russia, Turkey, Spain and Bolivia allow us to measure the distance between their epoch and our own, and to clear away their problematic legacies.

The spectre of Babeuf
Birchall, Ian H., author
Chicago, Illinois : Haymarket Books, 2016
Introduction -- 'Born in the mud' -- Advancing revolution -- The conspiracy -- The trial -- First opinions -- 1848 and after -- The shadow of October -- Cold War and after -- Common happiness -- Theory and practice.
"This study of Babeuf as a political thinker, based on an analysis of his extensive writings, and on scholarship unavailable in English, draws out why so many considered him to be a major precursor of the modern revolutionary socialist tradition and goes on to make the case that his ideas have much to teach today's activists. The first part traces Babeuf's political evolution in the context of the French Revolution, the second examines his changing reputation among subsequent historians, and the final section assesses the originality of his thought, showing him to be neither a Jacobin nor a Utopian. This updated second edition features an important new introduction by Ian Birchall, a prolific writer and leading authority on Babeuf, that summarizes Babeuf's historical significance, his ideas, and his practice in revolutionary France."
