Cultures in Motion

By Rodgers, Daniel T., Bhavani Raman, and Helmut Reimitz, eds

Princeton, New Jersey: Princeton University Press, 2014. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Near Fine/Fine. Sterling condition hardcover copy, gift-quality. Tips unbruised, spine and binding tight, pages bright and clear, paste-downs neat and tidy, and not ex-library; neither underlining nor highlighting. Small "review copy" stamp to bottom edge. Dust jacket fully intact, still bright and shiny. From the publisher's blurb: "In the wide-ranging and innovative essays of Cultures in Motion, a dozen distinguished historians offer new conceptual vocabularies for understanding how cultures have trespassed across geography and social space. From the transformations of the meanings and practices of charity during late antiquity and the transit of medical knowledge between early modern China and Europe, to the fusion of Irish and African dance forms in early nineteenth-century New York, these essays follow a wide array of cultural practices through the lens of motion, translation, itinerancy, and exchange, extending the insights of transnational and translocal history. Cultures in Motion challenges the premise of fixed, stable cultural systems by showing that cultural practices have always been moving, crossing borders and locations with often surprising effect. The essays offer striking examples from early to modern times of intrusion, translation, resistance, and adaptation. These are histories where nothing - dance rhythms, alchemical formulas, musical practices, feminist aspirations, sewing machines, streamlined metals, or labor networks - remains stationary. In addition to the editors, the contributors are Celia Applegate, Peter Brown, Harold Cook, April Masten, Mae Ngai, Jocelyn Olcott, Mimi Sheller, Pamela Smith, and Nira Wickramasinghe." Notes, bibliography, index. xvi + 371 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

Transnational Culture, Transnational Identity: the politics and ethics of global culture exchange

By Koundoura, Maria

London, England: I.B. Tauris, 2012. Hardcover. As New/As New. Sterling condition hardcover copy, gift-quality. Tips unbruised, spine and binding tight, pages bright and clear, paste-downs neat and tidy, and not ex-library; neither underlining nor highlighting. Dust jacket fully intact, still bright and shiny. From the publisher's blurb: "Globalization, it seems, either holds the promise of new horizons and new worlds, or trammels local cultures and produces uniformity. Here, Maria Koundoura strikes a singular path between these divergent views and maps the full terrain of our contemporary culture landscape. Reading world literature and engaging with contemporary critical methodologies, she explores what she calls transnational visions of language and culture, and analyses the politics of identity, representation and cultural expression. She thus presents a history of the aesthetic of our moment in modernity, and situates that moment in the economics of the global culture market and the ethics of cultural translation. Offering a model for addressing key questions of contemporary culture, identity and globalization, this book will be invaluable for all those interested in cultural and postcolonial studies, diaspora and globalization studies, as well as world literature." Notes, index, and bibliography. xiii + 204 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

Snarl: in defense of stalled traffic and faulty networks

By Miller, Ruth A

Ann Arbor, Michigan: University of Michigan Press, 2013. Hardcover. As New/Fine. Sterling condition hardcover copy, gift-quality. Tips unbruised, spine and binding tight, pages bright and clear, paste-downs neat and tidy, and not ex-library; neither underlining nor highlighting. Dust jacket fully intact, still bright and shiny, and showing only the lightest edgewear. From the publisher's blurb: "Ruth A. Miller excavates a centuries-old history of nonhuman and nonbiological constitutional engagement and outlines a robust mechanical democracy that challenges existing theories of liberal and human political participation. Drawing on an eclectic set of legal, political, and automotive texts from France, Turkey, and the United States, she proposes a radical mechanical rearticulation of three of the most basic principles of democracy: vitality, mobility, and liberty. Rather than defending a grand theory of materialist or posthumanist politics, or addressing abstract concepts or things writ large, Miller invites readers into a self-contained history of constitutionalism situated in a focused discussion of automobile traffic congestion in Paris, Istanbul, and Boston. Within the mechanical public sphere created by automotive space, Snarl finds a model of democratic politics that transforms our most fundamental assumptions about the nature, and constitutional potential, of life, movement, and freedom." vi + 210 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
