Robert Appelbaum, "Literature and Utopian Politics in Seventeenth-Century England"
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | ISBN: 0521009154 | edition 2010 | PDF | 270 pages | 1,11 mb

There is nothing quite like this in the literature on utopian literature. It is focused on a short era, 1603-1670, and it dwells on many texts, persons, and events that have long since been forgotten. But it captures a movement of thought that still has relevance today, turning its material into a story of almost epic scope. (The author himself indicates that the story of the rise and decline of the utopian imagination in the seventeenth century is something of a tragedy.) Although this book is highly theoretical, very lit-crit and not entirely jargon-free, it is very readable.

Publisher: Cambridge University Press | ISBN: 052169759X | edition 2007 | PDF | 214 pages | 1,35 mb

Justice, Gender and the Politics of Multiculturalism explores the tensions that arise when culturally diverse democratic states pursue both justice for religious and cultural minorities and justice for women. Sarah Song provides a distinctive argument about the circumstances under which egalitarian justice requires special accommodations for cultural minorities while emphasizing the value of gender equality as an important limit on cultural accommodation.

Mary Esteve, "The Aesthetics and Politics of the Crowd in American Literature"
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | ISBN: 0521035902 | edition 2007 | PDF | 274 pages | 1,41 mb

As a central icon of political and cultural democracy, the crowd occupies a prominent place in the American literary and cultural landscape. Mary Esteve examines a range of writing by Poe, Hawthorne, Du Bois, James, and Stephen Crane to provide a study of crowd representations in American literature from the antebellum era to the early twentieth century. She argues that these writers examined the aesthetic and political meanings of urban crowd scenes.

Political Science/Critical Theory. An essential reevaluation of the proper role of politics in contemporary life. A critical rethinking of the categories of politics within a new sociopolitical and historical context, this book builds on the previous work of the distinguished political philosopher Giorgio Agamben to address the status and nature of politics itself. Bringing politics face-to-face with its own failures of consciousness and consequence, Agamben frames his analysis in terms of clear contemporary relevance. He proposes, in his characteristically allusive and intriguing way, a politics of gesture-a politics of means without end.

The Politics of Palm Oil Harm: A Green Criminological Perspective By Hanneke Mol
English | PDF | 2017 | 254 Pages | ISBN : 3319553771 | 3.58 MB

This book examines the politics of harm in the context of palm oil production in Colombia, with a primary focus on the Pacific coast region. Globally, the palm oil industry is associated with practices that fit the most conventional definitions and perceptions of crime, but also crucially, forms of social and environmental harm that do not fit strictly legalistic definitions and understandings of crime.
