The Psychoanalytic Ear and the Sociological Eye
Nancy Chodorow, "The Psychoanalytic Ear and the Sociological Eye"
English | ISBN: 0367134233 | 2019 | 316 pages | PDF | 15 MB
In The Psychoanalytic Ear and the Sociological Eye: Toward an American Independent Tradition, Nancy J. Chodorow brings together her two professional identities, psychoanalyst and sociologist, as she also brings together and moves beyond two traditions within American psychoanalysis, naming for the first time an American independent tradition. The book's chapters move inward, toward fine-tuned discussions of the theory and epistemology of the American independent tradition, which Chodorow locates originally in the writings of Erik Erikson and Hans Loewald, and outward toward what Chodorow sees as a missing but necessary connection between psychoanalysis, the social sciences, and the social world.

The Process of International Legal Reproduction Inequality, Historiography, Resistance
Rose Parfitt, "The Process of International Legal Reproduction: Inequality, Historiography, Resistance "
English | ISBN: 1316515192 | 2019 | 534 pages | PDF | 5 MB
That all states are free and equal under international law is axiomatic to the discipline. Yet even a brief look at the dynamics of the international order calls that axiom into question. Mobilising fresh archival research and drawing on a tradition of unorthodox Marxist and anti-colonial scholarship, Rose Parfitt develops a new 'modular' legal historiography to make sense of the paradoxical relationship between sovereign equality and inequality. Juxtaposing a series of seemingly unrelated histories against one another, including a radical re-examination of the canonical story of Fascist Italy's invasion of Ethiopia, Parfitt exposes the conditional nature of the process through which international law creates and disciplines new states and their subjects. The result is a powerful critique of international law's role in establishing and perpetuating inequalities of wealth, power and pleasure, accompanied by a call to attend more closely to the strategies of resistance that are generated in that process.

The Power of Narrative Climate Skepticism and the Deconstruction of Science
The Power of Narrative: Climate Skepticism and the Deconstruction of Science by Raul P. Lejano, Shondel J. Nero
English | October 1, 2020 | ISBN: 0197542107 | PDF | 204 pages | 8.7 MB
There is an ideological war of words waging in America, one that speaks to a new fundamentalism rising not just within the American public, but across other ideologically-torn nations around the globe as well. At its heart is climate skepticism, an ideological watershed that has become a core belief for millions of people despite a large scientific consensus supporting the science of anthropogenic climate change. While many scholars have examined the role of lobbyists and conservative think tanks in fueling the climate skepticism movement, there has not yet been a systematic analysis of why the narrative itself has resonated so powerfully with the public.

The Oxford World History of Empire Volume Two The History of Empires
Walter Scheidel, C. A. Bayly, Peter Fibiger Bang, "The Oxford World History of Empire: Volume Two: The History of Empires"
English | ISBN: 0197532764 | 2020 | PDF | 1352 pages | 101 MB
This is the first world history of empire, reaching from the third millennium BCE to the present. By combining synthetic surveys, thematic comparative essays, and numerous chapters on specific empires, its two volumes provide unparalleled coverage of imperialism throughout history and across continents, from Asia to Europe and from Africa to the Americas. Only a few decades ago empire was believed to be a thing of the past; now it is clear that it has been and remains one of the most enduring forms of political organization and power. We cannot understand the dynamics and resilience of empire without moving decisively beyond the study of individual cases or particular periods, such as the relatively short age of European colonialism. The history of empire, as these volumes amply demonstrate, needs to be drawn on the much broader canvas of global history.
