Trumplandia: Populist Nationalism in America

Author: 

Dianu, Tiberiu, attorney and author

Trumplandia: Populist Nationalism in America is a collection of essays about the transformation of America, which has turned from a united nation to one more divided than ever under the presidency of Donald Trump. Some pundits predict that if things don’t change another civil war could occur. Have we reached a point of no return? Author and attorney Tiberiu Dianu writes in the hope that America is mature enough to learn from its mistakes and avoid further scars along its evolving history.

Human Rights and the Arab Spring: The Cases of Tunisia and Egypt (St. James's Studies in World Affairs)(Paperback edition)

Author: 

El-Halabi, Bachar, Asfari Institute, American University of Beirut

By 2015, four years after the dawn of the Arab Spring, the prospects of a unifying political reform narrative in the Arab World were noticeably dwindling. The unprecedented opportunity for a regional workshop of reform and state building had stalled, with Islamist movements more anxious about questions of identity and religious ethics, and with the old guards of the “deep state” establishments (mainly military or religious personnel) countering the revolutions, rather than being concerned with constitutionalism.

Approaches to the Contemporary American Theatre

Author: 

Andreach, Robert J., Retired Professor of English, Monmouth College

Credentials: 

Robert J. Andreach is a retired professor and author of numerous studies of the contemporary American theatre. He holds a Ph.D. from New York University.

Book CoverIn this engaging study, theatre scholar Robert J. Andreach argues, in what will be his final book, that the contemporary American theatre merits appreciation for dramatizing experiences in genres that jostle the audience into thinking about the experiences in new ways, based on five units of analysis: the naturalistic play, modernist theatre, trilogies, tragedy, and comedy.

The Solidarity of The Shaken: Jan Patočka’s Legacy in the Modern World

Author: 

Palouš, Martin (Editor)

Credentials: 

Ambassador of the Czech Republic to the United States, 2001-2005, and Permanent Representative of the Czech Republic to the United Nations, 2006-2011

The phrase “solidarity of the shaken” was introduced into the today’s political vocabulary by Jan Patočka, one of the last students of the philosopher Edmund Husserl and undoubtedly the most important Czech philosopher of the twentieth century. In January 1977, Patočka became – together with Vaclav Havel and Jiri Hajek -- one of the first three spokespersons of Charter 77, Czechoslovakia’s anti-communist resistance movement. He died less than three months later, as a result of total exhaustion caused by days-long police interrogations.

The End of the Future: Governing Consequence in the Age of Digital Sovereignty

Author: 

Polsky, Stephanie, Ph.D., California College of the Arts

Credentials: 

Author of Walter Benjamin’s Transit: A Destructive Tour of Modernityand Ignoble Displacement: Dispossessed Capital in Dickensian London

We are now entering an era where the human world assumes recognition of itself as data. Much of humanity’s basis for existence is becoming subordinate to software processes that tabulate, index, and sort the relations that comprise what we perceive as reality. The acceleration of data collection threatens to relinquish ephemeral modes of representation to ceaseless processes of computation. This situation compels the human world to form relations with non-human agencies, to establish exchanges with software processes in order to allow a profound upgrade of our own ontological understanding.
