For many the dawn of the twentieth century ushered in an era where the world map had few if any blank spaces left to discover. The age of exploration was supposedly dead. New Spaces of Exploration challenges this assumption. Focusing specifically on exploration in the twentieth century, the authors demonstrate how new technologies and changing geopolitical configurations have ensured that exploration has remained a key feature of our rapidly globalizing world. Ranging widely in their geographical focus -- from the Europe and Asia to Australia, and from the polar regions to outer space -- they demonstrate the increasing diversity of modern exploration and reveal the continuing political, military, industrial and cultural motivations at play. The result is a major contribution to our understanding of the significance of exploration in the twentieth century.
We are all modern today. But modernity today is not what it used to be. Over the past few decades, modernity has been radically changed by globalization, individualization, new inequalities, and fundamentalism. A novel way of analysing contemporary societies is needed. This book proposes such an analysis. Every society seeks answers to certain basic questions: how to order life in common; how to satisfy human needs; how to establish knowledge. Sociology long assumed that the answers had been found once and for all: a liberal–democratic state, a market economy, and free scientific institutions. This trinity used to be called ‘modern society’. By contrast, this book is based on the idea that, under conditions of modernity, there are no stable and certain answers to these questions. There is a plurality of possible answers, every proposed answer can be criticized and contested, and every society needs to find its answer on its own. This new sociology of modernity proposes two key...

A brilliant discussion of James Baldwin and two intellectual worlds, black and Jewish. "At this point, the Negro identifies himself almost wholly with the Jew. The more devout Negro considers that he is a Jew, in bondage to a hard taskmaster and waiting for Moses to lead him out of Egypt," James Baldwin wrote, in his 1948 essay "The Harlem Ghetto." In The Group, Hilton Als picks up where Baldwin left off and studies the complicated, often volatile relationship between the intellectual and moral worlds of the black and Jewish communities. Als dissects Baldwin's association with the Jewish intellectuals who launched his career-editors Saul Levitas, Elliott Cohen, Robert Warshow, and Philip Rahv, the "group"-and he takes on the great Jewish writer Bernard Malamud's relationship to blacks. But he also discusses Baldwin's emotional pull toward the black radicals who, in effect, helped end his career as a writer by turning him into a political sloganeer. Als then turns to the dichotomy...

In his most explicitly political work to date, Pierre Bourdieu speaks out against the new myths of our time – especially those associated with neo–liberalism – and offers a passionate defence of the public interest. The withdrawal of the state from many areas of social life in recent years – housing, health, social services, etc. – has produced growing despair in the most deprived sections of the population; the dismantling of public welfare in the name of private enterprise, flexible markets and global competitiveness is increasing the misery of those who have suffered most. In this sharp, uncompromising attack on neo–liberalism and those who champion it – from the IMF to the President of the Bundesbank, from politicians to academic commentators – Bourdieu stands up for the interests of the powerless and helps to give a voice to those individuals, groups and social movements whose views are rarely heard in the dominant media. A powerful plea for a new internationalism which...
How does migration change a nation? "Germany in Transit" is the first sourcebook to illuminate the country's transition into a multiethnic society - from the arrival of the first guest workers in the mid-1950s to the most recent reforms in immigration and citizenship law. The book charts the highly contentious debates about migrant labor, human rights, multiculturalism, and globalization that have unfolded in Germany over the past fifty years - debates that resonate far beyond national borders. This cultural history in documents offers a rich archive for the comparative study of modern Germany against the backdrop of European integration, transnational migration, and the fall of the Berlin Wall. Divided into eleven thematic chapters, "Germany in Transit" includes 200 original texts in English translation, as well as a historical introduction, chronology, glossary, bibliography, and filmography.
In this urgent yet optimistic new work, Nobel Peace Prize winner Wangari Maathai provides a unique perspective on the fate of Africa.

This book, comprised of lectures given by Adorno towards the end of his life, provides an invaluable introduction to his historical and conceptual engagement with sociology. In these lectures we find a somewhat different Adorno from the author of the densely–wrought texts published in his lifetime. Here we can follow his thought in the process of formation, endowed with the spontaneity and energy of the spoken word. These lectures were held at the time of the ?positivist dispute? in German sociology, when Adorno was defending the position of the Frankfurt School against criticism from mainstream positivist sociologists. Adorno sets out a conception of sociology as a discipline going beyond the compilation and interpretation of empirical facts, its truth being inseparable from the essential structure of society itself. Sociology, therefore, is not seen as one academic field among others, but as an over–arching discipline impinging on all aspects of social life. Adorno covers...
The publications of the Hakluyt Society (founded in 1846) made available edited (and sometimes translated) early accounts of exploration. This compilation by R.H. Major (published 1859) brings together various manuscript and published sources which provide a picture of European exploration in the Southern Ocean in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
