Grieving should not be a strictly regimented process; nor is the best remedy for pain always to examine it or express it at great length. The strength of Konigsberg's message is its liberating force: there is no manual to grieving; you can do it freestyle. ISBN: 9781439148334. Our Book No: 26836. $18 AUD.

Argues that cosmopolitanism has a critical dimension which solves one of the weaknesses in the critical theory tradition: failure to respond to the challenges of globalization and intercultural communication. Critical cosmopolitanism is an approach that is not only relevant to social scientific analysis but also normatively grounded in a critical attitude. The argument for a critical, sociologically oriented cosmopolitanism aims to avoid, on the one hand, purely normative conceptions of cosmopolitanism and, on the other, approaches that reduce cosmopolitanism to the empirical expression of diversity. Attempts to take cosmopolitan theory beyond the largely Western context with which it has generally been associated, claiming that cosmopolitan analysis must now take into account non-Western expressions of cosmopolitanism.

In this epic survey, he pulls together the changes that occurred in organized and disorganized religious life during this turbulent decade, and shows where those changes came from, following in a chronological manner the religious news and events of the day. He recalls the unusual role religion played in the 1960 and 1964 presidential elections, the stunning results of the Second Vatican Council, the place of religion in the civil rights and antiwar movements, the emergence of Death of God theology, and the impact of religion on the counterculture. He also interprets what happened spiritually as an important and perhaps permanent shift in the character of American religion, from an institutionally determined to a more subjective experience of the divine.

London: Earthscan Publications. 185 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, pictorial cover, as new condition. Explores how uncertainty is interpreted and used by policy makers, experts and politicians. It argues that conventional notions of rational, evidence-based policy making - hailed by governments and organisations across the world as the only way to make good policy - is impossible in highly complex and uncertain environments. The blind pursuit of such a rational goal is in fact irrational in a world of competing values and interests. Based on two high-profile case studies: the Iraq War, and climate change policy in the US, UK and Australia. Based on three years' research - including interviews with experts such as Hans Blix, Paul Pillar and Brian Jones. Both case studies show that treatment of uncertainty issues in specialist advice is often determined by how well the advice fits with or contradicts the policy goals and orientation of the politicians. One should not allow the debate to be side-tracked by arguments over whose expert advice is "more right". We must accept that uncertainty in complex issues is unavoidable, and recognise the values and interests that lie at the heart of the issues. Offers a hedging approach; this enables policy makers to manage rather than eliminate uncertainty. ISBN: 9781849710831. Our Book No: 14256. $40 AUD.

Kidd's study probes the theological anxieties that lurked behind the confident facade of of white racial supremacy in the age of empire and race slavery, as well as the ways in which racialist ideas left their mark upon new forms of religiosity. Essential reading for anyone interested in the histories of race or religion. ISBN: 0521797292. Our Book No: 10871. $40 AUD.

Conspiracy theories are everywhere in post-war American culture. From postmodern novels to The X-Files and from gangsta rap to feminist polemic, there is a widespread suspicion that sinister forces are conspiring to take control of our national destiny, our minds, and even our bodies.

They have become a necessary response to a risky and increasingly globalized world, in which everything is connected but nothing adds up. An engaging and cogent analysis of the development of conspiracy culture, and about familiar topics like the Kennedy assassination, alien abduction, body horror, AIDS, crack cocaine, the New World Order, as well as more unusual ones like the conspiracies of patriarchy and white supremacy.

The wave of ethnic conflict that has swept across Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and Africa, has led to fear that these conflicts are contagious.

The editors have organized an ambitious, sophisticated exploration of the origins and spread of ethnic conflict - useful to policymakers and theorists alike. Ethnic conflict is not caused directly by intergroup differences or centuries-old feuds. The collapse of the Soviet Union did not simply uncork ethnic passions long suppressed. They look instead at how anxieties over security, competition for resources, breakdown in communication with the government, and the inability to make enduring commitments lead ethnic groups into conflict. Considers the strategic interactions that underlie ethnic conflict and its effective management. ISBN: 0691016909. Our Book No: 15049. $20 AUD.

It has become so integrated into the global economy that its prospects have immediate effects on our everyday lives: simultaneously doubling the cost of the London Olympics while halving the cost of our computers, and keeping the US economy afloat but sinking the Italian footwear industry. Because China s rise - like the fall of Rome or the British Raj - will echo down generations to come, these are the questions we increasingly need to ask.

He introduces us to the thinkers that are shaping China's wide open future and opens up a hidden world of intellectual debate that is driving a new Chinese revolution and changing the face of the world.
