Food Riots, Food Rights and the Politics of Provisions by Naomi Hossain,Patta Scott-Villiers Summary

Thousands of people in dozens of countries took to the streets when world food prices spiked in 2008 and 2011. What does the persistence of popular mobilization around food tell us about the politics of subsistence in an era of integrated food markets and universal human rights? This book interrogates this period of historical rupture in the global system of subsistence, getting behind the headlines and inside the politics of food for people on low incomes. The half decade of 2007–2012 was a period of intensely volatile food prices as well as unusual levels of popular mobilization, including protests and riots. Detailed case studies are included here from Bangladesh, Cameroon, India, Kenya and Mozambique. The case studies illustrate that political cultures and ways of organizing around food share much across geography and history, indicating common characteristics of the popular politics of provisions under capitalism. However, all politics are ultimately local, and it is demonstrated how the historic fallout of a subsistence crisis depends ultimately on how the actors and institutions articulate, negotiate and reassert their specific claims within the peculiarities of each policy. A key conclusion of the book is that the politics of provisions remain essential to the right to food and that they involve unruliness. In other words, food riots work. The book explains how and why they continue to do so even in the globalized food system of the 21st century. Food riots signal a state unable to meet a principal condition of its social contract, and create powerful pressure to address that most fundamental of failings. .

Rethinking Existentialism by Jonathan Webber Summary

In Rethinking Existentialism, Jonathan Webber articulates an original interpretation of existentialism as the ethical theory that human freedom is the foundation of all other values. Offering an original analysis of classic literary and philosophical works published by Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, and Frantz Fanon up until 1952, Webber's conception of existentialism is developed in critical contrast with central works by Albert Camus, Sigmund Freud, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. Presenting his arguments in an accessible and engaging style, Webber contends that Beauvoir and Sartre initially disagreed over the structure of human freedom in 1943 but Sartre ultimately came to accept Beauvoir's view over the next decade. He develops the viewpoint that Beauvoir provides a more significant argument for authenticity than either Sartre or Fanon. He articulates in detail the existentialist theories of individual character and the social identities of gender and race, key concerns in current discourse. Webber concludes by sketching out the broader implications of his interpretation of existentialism for philosophy, psychology, and psychotherapy.

Comparative Law and Anthropology by James A.R. Nafziger Summary

The topical chapters in this cutting-edge collection at the intersection of comparative law and anthropology explore the mutually enriching insights and outlooks of the two fields. Comparative Law and Anthropology adopts a foundational approach to social and cultural issues and their resolution, rather than relying on unified paradigms of research or unified objects of study. Taken together, the contributions extend long-developing trends from legal anthropology to an anthropology of law and from externally imposed to internally generated interpretations of norms and processes of legal significance within particular cultures. The book's expansive conceptualization of comparative law encompasses not only its traditional geographical orientation, but also historical and jurisprudential dimensions. It is also noteworthy in blending the expertise of long-established, acclaimed scholars with new voices from a range of disciplines and backgrounds.

Nucléaire : une catastrophe française by Erwan Benezet Summary

Tchernobyl, Harrisburg, Fukushima... Mais auparavant déjà, Chalk River au Canada en 1952, Windscale au Royaume-Uni en 1957 ou encore Kychtym en Russie la même année... Autant de catastrophes nucléaires qui ont ébranlé la planète. « Oh, mais tout cela est arrivé si loin de chez nous ! » s’indigne la nucléocratie hexagonale. Vraiment ? C’est oublier un peu vite les deux accidents de Saint-Laurent-des-Eaux, la centrale du Loir-et-Cher, en 1969 puis en 1980. Dans les deux cas, du combustible d’uranium hautement radioactif était entré en fusion. C’est également glisser sous le tapis celui de Civaux (Vienne) en 1998. Ou du Blayais (Gironde), lors de la tempête de 1999. Sans parler de Fessenheim (Alsace), la plus vieille centrale de France, arrêtée en urgence lors de la canicule de 2003, pour cause de surchauffe... De nombreux pays remettent aujourd’hui en cause la suprématie de l’atome. Certains vont jusqu’à fermer définitivement leurs centrales. Pas chez nous, hors de question ! Le nucléaire est un fleuron ! Quitte à mettre son industrie en danger, en laissant passer le train du renouvelable ? Ou, plus grave, à faire courir des risques inconsidérés à la population ? Sous-investissements, scandales en tous genres, dénis face aux menaces terroristes, jusqu’aux problèmes d’entreposage de déchets, dont la dangerosité menace nos enfants et petits-enfants... La France joue avec le feu nucléaire. À nous, citoyens, de l’éteindre. Et de reprendre en main la politique énergétique de notre pays. Erwan Benezet est journaliste au Parisien-Aujourd’hui en France, service Économie, en charge de l’énergie et de l’automobile.

The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,General Press Summary

First published in 1943, The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry has been translated into more than 250 languages, becoming a global phenomenon. The Sahara desert is the scenery of Little Prince’s story. The narrator’s plane has crashed there and he has scarcely some food and water to survive. Trying to comprehend what caused the crash, the Little Prince appears. The serious blonde little boy asks to draw him a sheep. The narrator consents to the strange fellow’s request. They soon become friends and the Little Prince informs the pilot that he is from a small planet, the asteroid 325, talks to him about the baobabs, his planet volcanoes and the mysterious rose that grew on his planet. He also talks to him about their friendship and the lie that evoked his journey to other planets. Often puzzled by the grown-ups’ behavior, the little traveler becomes a total and eternal symbol of innocence and love, of responsibility and devotion. Through him we get to see how insightful children are and how grown-ups aren’t. Children use their heart to feel what’s really important, not the eyes. Heart-breaking, funny and thought-provoking, it is an enchanting and endlessly wise fable about the human condition and the power of imagination. A book about both childhood and adulthood, it can be read as a parable, a war story, a classic children's fairy-tale, and many more things besides: The Little Prince is a book for everyone; after all, all grown-ups were children once.

Paix en guerre by Ronan Farrow Summary

Le premier livre du journaliste primé du Prix Pulitzer 2018 La politique étrangère des États-Unis subit une mutation désastreuse, modifiant pour toujours le rôle de l’Amérique dans le monde. Les institutions diplomatiques souffrent de coupes budgétaires drastiques et les diplomates, qui ont permis les plus fines négociations et protégé des citoyens aux quatre coins du monde, sont démis de leurs fonctions du jour au lendemain. Des bureaux entiers du ministère des Affaires étrangères restent vides, alors qu’à l’extérieur, l’industrie et l’armée reprennent les rênes tenues autrefois par les artisans de la paix. Dans une exploration fascinante des coulisses du pouvoir, de Washington jusqu’aux recoins les plus isolés et dangereux de la planète – Afghanistan, Somalie, Corée du Nord notamment – l’éminent journaliste Ronan Farrow éclaire l’un des changements les plus conséquents et les moins compris de l’histoire de l’Amérique. Son expérience d’employé du ministère des Affaires étrangères nous dévoile aussi une vision personnelle des derniers défenseurs de l’État, dont Richard Holbrooke, qui a obtenu la paix en Bosnie avant de la tenter en Afghanistan. S’appuyant sur des documents jamais dévoilés, et enrichi d’interviews exclusives d’éminences politiques (de Henry Kissinger à Hillary Clinton), Paix en guerre nous alerte sur une profession en voie d’extinction et dont la dégradation a débuté pendant l’ère Bush après des décennies de politique de la lâcheté et de manque de vue à long terme.

The Great Derangement by Amitav Ghosh Summary

A “concise and utterly enlightening” look at why we can’t wrap our minds around climate change (Publishers Weekly). Are we deranged? Award-winning essayist and novelist Amitav Ghosh argues that future generations may think so. How else to explain our imaginative failure in the face of global warming? The Great Derangement examines our inability—at the level of literature, history, and politics—to grasp the scale and violence of climate change. The extreme nature of today’s climate events, Ghosh asserts, make them peculiarly resistant to current modes of thinking and imagining. This is particularly true of serious literary fiction: hundred-year storms and freakish tornadoes simply feel too improbable; they are automatically consigned to genres like science fiction. In the writing of history, too, the crisis has sometimes led to gross simplifications, but the carbon economy is a tangled story with many contradictory and counterintuitive elements. Ghosh ends by suggesting that politics, much like literature, has become a matter of personal moral reckoning rather than an arena of collective action, and that limitation comes at great cost. The climate crisis asks us to imagine other forms of human existence—a task to which fiction, Ghosh argues, is the best suited of all cultural forms. His book serves as a great writer’s summons to confront the most urgent task of our time, and “makes the case that climate solutions can’t be left to scientists, technocrats, and politicians” (Los Angeles Review of Books). “Perhaps the most penetrating cultural critic of a new age defined by climate change and the strange, inadequate, and often self-deluding ways we process its transformations in our storytelling.”—New York Magazine “Resistance to the grim realities of climate change is so widespread that the crisis barely figures in literary fiction, notes writer Amitav Ghosh…The solution, he argues, lies in collective action as well as scientific and governmental involvement.”—Nature

Reform of Higher Education in Europe by J. Enders,H.F. de Boer,D.F. Westerheijden Summary

The volume ‘Reform of Higher Education in Europe’ is published in celebration of CHEPS’ 25th anniversary. All contributors to this book are working at CHEPS, and bring their extensive knowledge of the deep-seated reforms and changes to the field of higher education and research over the last 25 years. The chapters are each devoted to a detailed policy analysis deeply rooted in CHEPS’ quarter-century programme of theoretical and empirical research. Some contributions cover key themes of concern since CHEPS’ early years, including state-university relationships, quality assurance and funding. Other contributions cover more contemporary higher education policy issues, including European reform initiatives (innovation, the Bologna Process, doctoral training and the Erasmus programme) and debates around higher education institutions’ evolving functions, including the university’s third mission and the research function of universities of applied sciences. What unifies all chapters is their recognition that policy success is dependent on smart implementation grounded in a comprehensive understanding of highly complex policy processes. The book as a whole offers clear descriptions and analyses of how policy processes are implemented through co-ordinated institutional and stakeholder interventions. This volume seeks to enhance academic and policy-maker understanding of Europe’s evolving higher education system as it emerges as a cornerstone of the contemporary knowledge society.

Les Défis des PME du Sud et du Nord by Laura Bacali,Martine M. Spence,Théophile Dzaka-Kikouta,Roxana C. Cordos Summary

Les PME représentent la majorité du tissu industriel de la plupart des nations et y créent la majorité des emplois. Elles sont devenues les outils qu’utilisent bien des gouvernements et des partenaires au développement pour réduire la pauvreté et stimuler et diversifier les économies. Dans une perspective comparative, cet ouvrage étudie l’entrepreneuriat dans trois pays de culture et de niveau économique différents, malgré leur appartenance commune à l’espace de la Francophonie : un pays industrialisé et membre du G8, le Canada, un pays émergent et membre de l’Union européenne, la Roumanie, et un pays en voie de développement d’Afrique et exportateur de pétrole, le Congo Brazzaville. L’étude s’inscrit dans le contexte de l’analyse institutionnelle et intègre, notamment, la culture du développement durable, visant à mettre en évidence l’impact de divers facteurs sur les spécificités du comportement entrepreneurial des PME. Les auteurs avancent que la promotion des PME dépendra fondamentalement de la capacité à générer des institutions de qualité qui jouent un rôle déterminant dans une meilleure coordination marchande.

This volume brings together scholars who work with animal and human models of social behavior to discuss the challenges and opportunities in this interdisciplinary academic field.

The Diplomacy of Culture by I. Kozymka Summary

Cultural diversity, because it is perceived to have significant security, developmental, and social implications, is fast becoming one of the major political issues of the day. At the international level, it overlaps with the now extensive debates on multiculturalism within states. This work shows how cultural diversity challenges the understanding of international relations as relations between states and, by looking at the issue through the magnifying glass of an international organization, offers innovative insights into the interplay between various levels of international society. The book examines in particular the role of UNESCO, the only United Nations agency responsible for culture and the main forum for international diplomacy on the issue of cultural diversity.

The Cognitive Value of Philosophical Fiction by Jukka Mikkonen Summary

Can literary fictions convey significant philosophical views, understood in terms of propositional knowledge? This study addresses the philosophical value of literature by examining how literary works impart philosophy truth and knowledge and to what extent the works should be approached as communications of their authors. Beginning with theories of fiction, it examines the case against the prevailing 'pretence' and 'make-believe' theories of fiction hostile to propositional theories of literary truth. Tackling further arguments against the cognitive function and value of literature, this study illustrates how literary works can contribute to knowledge by making assertions and suggestions and by providing hypotheses for the reader to assess. Through clear analysis of the concept of the author, the role of the authorial intention and the different approaches to the 'meaning' of a literary work, this study provides an historical survey to the cognitivist-anti-cognitivist dispute, introducing contemporary trends in the discussion before presenting a novel approach to recognizing the cognitive function of literature. An important contribution to philosophical studies of literature and knowledge.

Jean-Paul Sartre: Das Sein und das Nichts by Bernard N. Schumacher Summary

Sartre ist unbestritten eine herausragende Gestalt der zeitgenössischen Philosophie, dessen Werk "Das Sein und das Nichts" zu den Klassikern der philosophischen Literatur gehört. Als bedeutendster Philosoph der Nachkriegszeit hat Sartre eine ganze Generation von Denkern geprägt. Ungeachtet zahlreicher Versuche, ihn herabzuwürdigen, aller Verachtung, allem Neid über seinen Erfolg und den vielen Anfechtungen und leidenschaftlich geführten Debatten, die seine philosophischen Positionen auslösten, zum Trotz, ist Sartre der französische Autor des XX. Jahrhunderts, der am meisten studiert wird. In seinem Buch, dem Hauptwerk des französischen Existenzialismus, eröffnet Sartre völlig neue, befreiende Einsichten über die menschliche Freiheit, über Gefühle wie Scham und Begehren, über den Tod. Er bringt die Philosophie zurück auf die Straße. Dennoch ist die mehr als tausend Seiten umfassende Analyse des legendären Denkers nicht ganz einfach zu lesen. Der nunmehr vorliegende kooperative Kommentar gibt mit 13 Originalbeiträgen einen spannenden Überblick über den Inhalt des Werks und dokumentiert zugleich unterschiedliche Perspektiven der internationalen Sartre-Forschung.
