Azoulay argues that the institutions that make our world, from archives and museums to ideas of sovereignty and human rights to history itself, are all dependent on imperial modes of thinking. Imperialism has segmented populations into differentially governed groups, continually emphasised the possibility of progress while trying to destroy what came before, and voraciously sought out the new by sealing the past away in dusty archival boxes and the glass vitrines of museums.
In Potential History, Azoulay travels alongside historical companions — an old Palestinian man who refused to leave his village in , an anonymous woman in war-ravaged Berlin, looted objects and documents torn from their worlds and now housed in archives and museums — to chart the ways imperialism has sought to order time, space, and politics. Her many books include The Civil Contract of Photography and Civil Imagination: A Political Ontology of Photography, and she has curated exhibits for galleries and museums around the world.
Alexander Zevin Path-breaking history of modern liberalism told through the pages of one of its most zealous supporters Since , the Economist has been the single most devoted and influential champion of liberalism anywhere in the world. But what exactly is liberalism, and how has the liberal message evolved?
The World According to the Economist presents a history of liberalism on the move, confronting the challenges that classical doctrine left unresolved: the rise of democracy, the expansion of empire, the ascendancy of finance. Confidante to the powerful, emissary for the financial sector, portal onto international affairs, the bestselling news weekly shapes the world its readers—and the rest of us—inhabit.
This is the first critical biography of one of the architects of a liberal world order now under increasing strain. How did we get here? Maya Goodfellow offers a compelling answer.

Through interviews with leading policy-makers, asylum seekers, and immigration lawyers, Goodfellow illuminates the dark underbelly of contemporary immigration policies.

Maya Goodfellow is a writer, researcher and academic. The conflict in Northern Ireland claimed the lives of 3, people and injured many more.
This book is a riveting new history of the radical politics that drove a unique insurgency that emerged from the crucible of From Wilson and Heath to Thatcher and Blair, a generation of British politicians had to face an unprecedented subversive threat that's reach extended from West Belfast to Westminster. Finn shows how Republicans fought a war on several fronts, making use of every weapon available to achieve their goal of a united Ireland, from car bombs to election campaigns, street marches to hunger strikes.
Though driven by an uncompromising revolutionary politics that blended militant nationalism with left-wing ideology, their movement was never monolithic, its history punctuated by splits and internal conflicts. Daniel Finn is the deputy editor of the New Left Review. Jessica Whyte The fatal embrace of human rights and neoliberalism Drawing on detailed archival research on the parallel histories of human rights and neoliberalism, Jessica Whyte uncovers the place of human rights in neoliberal attempts to develop a moral framework for a market society.
Yet, rather than rejecting rights, they developed a distinctive account of human rights as tools to depoliticise civil society, protect private investments and shape liberal subjects. They are fascinating for two reasons. Louis Althusser was born in Algeria in and died in France in Why now? And where is it going? It is the product of developments in socialist and working-class politics over the past forty years and more.
The Thatcher era witnessed a wholesale attack on the postwar consensus and welfare state, through a regime of deregulation, attacks on the unions, privatisations, and globalisation. However, at the same time, there existed a persistent resistance to the growing powers of neo-liberalism. This side of the story is rarely told as it was considered to be a history of defeat.
Yet out of this struggle emerged a thoroughly modern socialism. This book is essential reading for those who want to know where Corbynism comes from: the policies, personalities and moments of resistance that have produced this new horizon. This includes the story of power struggles within the Labour Party, and the eventual defeat of New Labour. The movements outside it — trade unions, feminists groups, anti-fascists activists, anti-war protestors — that have driven the policies of the movement forward.
And the powerful influence of international groups that have shaped the potential for a global progressive politics. He was Chair of the Stop the War Coalition. In brief, revolutions were an essential mode of rethinking the past — history — in the light of new demands for the present and the future. As Beijing anticipates its rise to a destined global power, this study become only more urgent. Rebecca E.
In this radical and visionary new book, McKenzie Wark argues that the allpervasive presence of data in our networked society has given rise to a new mode of production, one not ruled over by capitalists and their factories but by those who own and control the flow of information. Yet, if this is not capitalism anymore, could it be something worse? And, if this is the case, how do we find a way out? Capital Is Dead offers not only the theoretical tools to analyse this new world of information, but the ones to change it, too. A follow-up to their groundbreaking A Hacker Manifesto, Wark takes us on a tour of our information age.
Drawing on the writings of the Situationists and a range of contemporary theorists, they offer a vast panorama of the contemporary condition and the classes that control it. Playful, angry, depressed, celebratory, this is a book for anyone not convinced that there is no alternative to the way we live now. Mullen and Christopher Vials How antifascism is as American as apple pie. Yet long before Antifa became a household word in the United States, they were met, time and again, by an equally deep antifascist current.
Many on the left are unaware that the United States has a rich antifascist tradition, because it has rarely been discussed as such, nor has it been accessible in one place. This reader reconstructs the history of US antifascism the twenty-first century, showing how generations of writers, organisers, and fighters spoke to each other over time. Planetary Mine suggests that the burgeoning race for resources that began at the turn of the century has come to signal two distinct, yet overlapping, epoch-making shifts: the end of the Western phase of capitalism, on the one hand, and an unfolding technological revolution on the other.

Through an exploration of the integrated logistical infrastructures that connect mines in the Atacama Desert of Chile with an expanding constellation of megacities, ports, banks, and factories across East Asia, the book rethinks uneven geographical development in the current, postglobalisation context. His research explores the role of primary commodity production — especially mining and agriculture — in the political economy of urbanisation and of global capitalism. Richard Lachmann How all great powers decline — including the US The extent and irreversibility of US decline is becoming ever more obvious as America loses war after war and as one industry after another loses its technological edge.
Lachmann explains why the United States will not be able to sustain its global dominance. Decline in all those cases was not inevitable and did not respond to global capitalist cycles.
Not only are ordinary people harmed, but also capitalists become increasingly unable to coordinate their interests and adopt policies and make investments necessary to counter economic and geopolitical competitors elsewhere in the world. Conflicts among elites and challenges by non-elites determine the timing and mould the contours of decline. Christopher Hill A classic study of popular resistance to the momentous changes of seventeenth-century England. In this, the last book published during his lifetime, renowned historian of the English Revolution Christopher Hill uses the literary culture of the seventeenth century to explore the immense social changes of the period as well as the expressions of liberty, the law and the hero-worship of the outlaw defiance.
As well as chapters on gypsies and vagabonds, Hill analyzes class, religion and the shift away from the importance of the church after the Reformation. Christopher Hill — , born in York, was a historian and academic specialising in seventeenth-century English history. As a young man he witnessed the growth of the Nazi party firsthand during a prolonged holiday in Germany, an experience he later said contributed to the radicalisation of his politics.
He was master of Balliol College, University of Oxford, his alma mater, from to Maurice Godelier demonstrates the contrary: the real is not separate from the symbolic and the imaginary. And these aspects in turn shape our social and personal identity. Maurice Godelier is a world-renowned anthropologist. Yet the philosophy of the free market and the strong state has an uncanny capacity to survive and even thrive in crisis. This volume breaks with the caricature of neoliberalism as a simple belief in market fundamentalism to show how neoliberal thinkers perceived institutions from the family to the university, disagreed over issues from intellectual property rights and human behaviour to social complexity and monetary order, and sought to win consent for their project through new honours, disciples, and networks.
He teaches History at Wellesley College. Far Country Franco Moretti Pioneering literary theorist takes cultural history out of the classroom and into the world. Ranging from poetry and the novel to theatre and the visual arts, Far Country juxtaposes canonical figures in American art and letters with European counterparts — Whitman and Baudelaire, Hemingway and Joyce, Miller and Brecht, Hopper and Vermeer — charting ruptures in the medium of form that have transformed the cultural landscape on either side of the Atlantic over the past century.
