Stuart Sim diagnoses the global financial crisis and the global environmental crisis as symptoms of the end of modernity, a cultural system that has prevailed in the West since the time of the Enlightenment. The modern world's insatiable need for technologically driven progress is unsustainable, he claims, not to mention destructive to the planet and its socioeconomic systems. Sim calls for a radical alteration of our worldview, asking that we jettison the free market, rein in conspicuous consumption, reinvigorate public service, and develop talents that will reconstruct society in a satisfactory way.

Polygamy and Sublime Passion: Sexuality in China on the Verge of Modernity

Polygamy and Sublime Passion: Sexuality in China on the Verge of Modernity by Keith McMahon
English | Nov. 24, 2009 | ISBN: 0824833767 | 226 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

For centuries of Chinese history, polygamy and prostitution were closely linked practices that legitimized the "polygynous male," the man with multiple sexual partners. Despite their strict hierarchies, these practices also addressed fundamental antagonisms in sexual relations in serious and constructive ways. Qing fiction abounds in stories of female resistance and superiority. Women―main wives, concubines, and prostitutes―were adept at exerting control and gaining status for themselves, while men indulged in elaborate fantasies about female power. In Polygamy and Sublime Passion, Keith McMahon introduces a new concept, "passive polygamy," to explain the unusual number of Qing stories in which women take charge of a man’s desires, turning him into an instrument of female will. To this he adds a story that haunted the institutions of polygamy and prostitution: the tale of "sublime passion," in which the main characters are a "remarkable" woman and her male lover.
