Птицы, искусство, жизнь: год наблюдений

Кио Маклир

В книге «Птицы, искусство, жизнь: год наблюдений» Кио Маклир отправляется в орнитологическое путешествие по большому городу и на своем пути размышляет о природе творчества и поисках осмысленной жизни. Оказавшись в сложной жизненной ситуации, рассказчица открывает для себя мир «бёрдинга», наблюдений за птицами. С одной стороны, эссе, исследующее наши взаимоотношения с окружающей природой, с другой – упражнение в искусстве приметливости и дневник наблюдений за собой. Птицы для Маклир становятся тем же, чем были грибы для Джона Кейджа, бабочки для Владимира Набокова или пчелы для Сильвии Плат – внешним толчком к внутреннему путешествию. На более глубинном уровне Маклир поднимает вопросы о том, как нас формируют и воспитывают параллельные увлечения, и как мы можем прийти к тому, чтобы бережно относиться не только к девственным природным местам в мире, но и к пятнистым городским пространствам, в которых мы живем.

Почему у женщин при социализме секс лучше. Аргументы в пользу экономической независимости

Кристен Годси

Профессор Пенсильванского университета, автор семи книг Кристен Годси объясняет, почему триумф капитализма в странах первого и второго мира не стал выходом для большинства женщин. Она мастерски развенчивает устойчивые мифы о том, что в условиях свободного рынка у женщин больше возможностей достичь карьерных высот и экономической независимости, внутреннего равновесия и личного счастья. На множестве примеров Кристен Годси показывает, как, дискриминируя женщин, капитализм во всем обделяет их – от физических радостей до интеллектуальной самореализации – и использует в интересах процветания тех, кто уже находится на вершине экономической пирамиды. Несмотря на крах и идейную дискредитацию социализма в странах Восточной Европы, Годси убеждена, что многие элементы социалистической экономики способны обеспечить женщине условия для развития и полноправного труда, здоровое распределение сил между работой и семьей и в конечном итоге гармоничные и насыщенные сексуальные отношения.

В фокусе новой книги журналистов Андрея Солдатова и Ирины Бороган – кровавая история российского шпионажа, написанная по следам секретных операций за рубежом.

Making Representations

Michael Saward

In the past decade, the way we look at political representation has changed. A new wave of thinking shows how representation rises from claims to speak for others, and how the claims are performed and received. The claim-based approach introduces new characters to the drama of representation, such as non-elective, shape-shifting and transnational representatives. Written by an originator of this approach, Making Representations responds to critical questions about the practice and the legitimacy of representation in today’s politics. It also expands the scope of the representative claim approach by exploring innovative themes such as performances of representation, becoming representative, and how we can generate political insights by exploring artistic representation.

The Russians Are Coming, Again

John Marciano

Karl Marx famously wrote in The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon that history repeats itself, “first as tragedy, then as farce.” The Cold War waged between the United States and Soviet Union from 1945 until the latter's dissolution in 1991 was a great tragedy, resulting in millions of civilian deaths in proxy wars, and a destructive arms race that diverted money from social spending and nearly led to nuclear annihilation. The New Cold War between the United States and Russia is playing out as farce – a dangerous one at that. The Russians Are Coming, Again is a red flag to restore our historical consciousness about U.S.-Russian relations, and how denying this consciousness is leading to a repetition of past follies. Kuzmarov and Marciano's book is timely and trenchant. The authors argue that the Democrats’ strategy, backed by the corporate media, of demonizing Russia and Putin in order to challenge Trump is not only dangerous, but also, based on the evidence so far, unjustified, misguided, and a major distraction. Grounding their argument in all-but-forgotten U.S.-Russian history, such as the 1918-20 Allied invasion of Soviet Russia, the book delivers a panoramic narrative of the First Cold War, showing it as an all-too-avoidable catastrophe run by the imperatives of class rule and political witch-hunts. The distortion of public memory surrounding the First Cold War has set the groundwork for the New Cold War, which the book explains is a key feature, skewing the nation’s politics yet again. This is an important, necessary book, one that, by including accounts of the wisdom and courage of the First Cold War's victims and dissidents, will inspire a fresh generation of radicals in today's new, dangerously farcical times.Karl Marx famously wrote in The Eighteenth Brumaire of Louis Napoleon that history repeats itself, “first as tragedy, then as farce.” The Cold War waged between the United States and Soviet Union from 1945 until the latter's dissolution in 1991 was a great tragedy, resulting in millions of civilian deaths in proxy wars, and a destructive arms race that diverted money from social spending and nearly led to nuclear annihilation.

Voices of Latin America

Группа авторов

These are uncertain times in Latin America. Popular faith in democracy has been shaken; traditional political parties and institutions are stagnating, and there is a growing right-wing extremism overtaking some governments. Yet, in recent years, autonomous social movements have multiplied and thrived. This book presents voices of these movement protagonists themselves, as they describe the major issues, conflicts, and campaigns for social justice in Latin America today. Latin America Bureau, a London-based, independent organization providing news and analysis on the region, spoke to people from fourteen countries, from Mexico to the Southern Cone. The book captures the voices indigenous activists, fighting oil drilling in their homelands; mothers from favelas seeking justice for their children killed by police; opponents of large-scale mining projects; independent journalists working, at great personal risk, to expose corruption and human rights violations; women and LGBT people confronting violence and discrimination; and students demanding their right to a free, universal and high-quality education system. Though their locations and causes are disparate, these people and their movements share learning and activism, and their cooperation helps to link the movements across national borders. Voices of Latin America is essential reading for students, travelers, journalists—anyone with an interest in social justice movements in Latin America.

Mediated Democracy

Michael W. Wagner

Mediated Democracy: Politics, the News, and Citizenship in the 21st Century takes a contemporary, communications-oriented perspective on the central questions pertaining to the health of democracies and relationships between citizens, journalists, and political elites. The approach marries clear syntheses of cutting-edge research with practical advice explaining why the insights of scholarship affects students’ lives. With active, engaging writing, the text will thoroughly explain why things are the way they are, how they got that way, and how students can use the insights of political communication research to do something about it as citizens.

Public Opinion

Rosalee A. Clawson

Clawson and Oxley link the enduring normative questions of democratic theory to existing empirical research on public opinion. Organized around a series of questions—In a democratic society, what should be the relationship between citizens and their government? Are citizens’ opinions pliable? Are they knowledgeable, attentive, and informed?—the text explores the tension between ideals and their practice. Each chapter focuses on exemplary studies, explaining not only the conclusion of the research, but how it was conducted, so students gain a richer understanding of the research process and see methods applied in context.
