Qualitative Freedom - Autonomy in Cosmopolitan Responsibility

by Claus Dierksmeier

They develop and apply quantitative political economy approaches by integrating quantitative models of political decision-making into existing economic modeling tools, allowing a more comprehensive growth-poverty analysis. The book a...

Volcanic Unrest: From Science to Society (Advances in Volcanology)

by Joachim Gottsmann

This open access book summarizes the findings of the VUELCO project, a multi-disciplinary and cross-boundary research funded by the European Commission's 7th framework program. It comprises four broad topics:1.     The global significance of volcanic unrest2.     Geophysical and geochemical fingerprints of unrest and precursory activity3.     Magma dynamics leading to unrest phenomena4.     Bridging the gap between science and decision-makingVolcanic unrest is a complex multi-hazard phenomenon. The fact that unrest may, or may not lead to an imminent eruption contributes significant uncertainty to short-term volcanic hazard and risk assessment.  Although it is reasonable to assume that all eruptions are associated with precursory activity of some sort, the understanding of...

Re-Inventing Africa's Development: Linking Africa to the Korean Development Model

by Jong-Dae Park

This open access book analyses the development problems of sub-Sahara Africa (SSA) from the eyes of a Korean diplomat with knowledge of the economic growth Korea has experienced in recent decades. The author argues that Africa's development challenges are not due to a lack of resources but a lack of management, presenting an alternative to the traditional view that Africa's problems are caused by a lack of leadership. In exploring an approach based on mind-set and nation-building, rather than unity – which tends to promote individual or party interests rather than the broader country or national interests – the author suggests new solutions for SSA's economic growth, inspired by Korea's successful economic growth model much of which is focused on industrialisation.  This book will be...

Transfigured World: Walter Pater's Aesthetic Historicism

by Carolyn Williams

Exploring the intricacy and complexity of Walter Pater’s prose, Transfigured World challenges traditional approaches to Pater and shows precise ways in which the form of his prose expresses its content. Carolyn Williams asserts that Pater’s aestheticism and his historicism should be understood as dialectically interrelated critical strategies, inextricable from each other in practice. Williams discusses the explicit and embedded narratives that play a crucial role in Pater’s aesthetic criticism and examines the figures that compose these narratives, including rhetorical tropes, structures of argument such as genealogy, and historical or fictional personae....

Maritime Spatial Planning: past, present, future

by Jacek Zaucha

This open access book is the first comprehensive overview of maritime or marine spatial planning. Countries across the globe are beginning to implement maritime spatial plans; however the authors of this collection have identified several key questions that are emerging from this growing body of MSP experience. How can maritime spatial planning deal with a complex and dynamic environment such as the sea? How can MSP be embedded in multiple levels of governance across regional and national borders – and how far does the environment benefit from this new approach? This book actively engages with the problems encapsulated in these questions, and explores possible solutions.Situated at the intersection between theory and practice, the volume draws together several strands of interdisciplinar...

Political Subjectivity: The Philosophical Foundation of Democratic Individualism

by Reginald Grünenberg

***From March 22 to 26, this e-book is a gift for you! Please write an honest review and recommend it if you liked it. Thank you!***The Long Way from Serfdom to CitizenshipToday's understanding of politics is hopelessly outdated as it hasn't changed a lot since the times of Aristotle and Plato. In political philosophy and theory, we have never caught up with the achievements of the bourgeois revolutions, never properly analyzed their deeper meanings for us as citizens of the modern world. But here it is, the dawn of a new era of political philosophy, one that has learned from the past and that is turned towards the future. Yet, it's not an easy task as Grünenberg points out: "This book sets a new level, both in terms of the question and the answer. The goal is a new theory of reflection f...

Prodigal Human: The Descents of Man (Return to Grace Book 10)

by Michael Adzema

On the doorstep of an apocalypse of our own making, a revisioning of human’s presumed role as “crown of creation” and “pinnacle of evolution” is not just warranted but required. We are the prodigal daughters and sons of Nature and the Divine, no doubt about it. Prodigal Human reveals exactly that twistedness and how we can get back what we lost.This retreat from harmony with Nature, along with an incisive exposition of the resulting state of falleness, as it built up over time, is detailed in this book. The devolution involved in our, so-called, “evolution” is explained as to how it began, all the way back with bipedalism; how it proceeded—in a step-by-step process of descent occurring over the course of millions of years, including the emergence of birth trauma, the agrari...

Ancient Lamps in the J. Paul Getty Museum

by Jean Bussière

In the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum are more than six hundred ancient lamps that span the sixth century BCE to the seventh century CE, most from the Roman Imperial period and largely created in Asia Minor or North Africa. These lamps have much to reveal about life, religion, pottery, and trade in the ancient Graeco-Roman world. Most of the Museum’s lamps have never before been published, and this extensive typological catalogue will thus be an invaluable scholarly resource for art historians, archaeologists, and those interested in the ancient world. ...

Bread and Circuses: Theories of Mass Culture As Social Decay

by Patrick Brantlinger

Lively and well written, Bread and Circuses analyzes theories that have treated mass culture as either a symptom or a cause of social decadence. Discussing many of the most influential and representative theories of mass culture, it ranges widely from Greek and Roman origins, through Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Ortega y Gasset, T. S. Eliot, and the theorists of the Frankfurt Institute, down to Marshall McLuhan and Daniel Bell. Brantlinger considers the many versions of negative classicism and shows how the belief in the historical inevitability of social decay—a belief today perpetuated by the mass media themselves—has become the dominant view of mass culture in our time. While not defending mass culture in its present form, Brantlinger argues that the view of culture implicit in negative ...
