Melbourne, Brunswick East: Acorn Press. 282 pp. Paperback octavo, very good plus condition, autograph (author's written name). In this ground-breaking Australian book, international writers, scholars and commentators shed light on some of the most pressing human rights and public policy challenges of our time. Contributors include thinkers of Muslim background with extensive personal experience in developing countries, and Western writers of both secular and religious (mainly Christian) orientation. Essays deal with the human rights of Muslims and non-Muslims alike, in areas ranging from women's rights to freedom on religion. Another focus is on the challenges of adaptation that immigrant Muslim communities in the West face, as do non-Muslims as they seek to understand and come to terms with different Muslim world views. Contentious areas of debate such as the sources of religious violence, and the implications of so-called Islamisation, are not avoided but addressed with openness, honesty and candour. Other specific topics include multi-faith dialogue, Islamic finance, and the nature of Islamic law (Sharia). The book concludes with a set of practical, concrete recommendations for individuals directly involved in setting relevant public policies. (1 of 2 available copies.). ISBN/ASIN: 9780908284764.

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press (CUP). 296 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, minor edgewear. Gerard Delanty assesses the idea of cosmopolitanism in social and political thought, and which links cosmopolitan theory with critical social theory. He 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 avoids purely normative conceptions of cosmopolitanism as well as approaches that reduce cosmopolitanism to the empirical expression of diversity. He takes cosmopolitan theory beyond the largely Western context with which it has generally been associated to include non-Western expressions of cosmopolitanism. ISBN/ASIN: 9780521695459.

London: Earthscan Publications. 185 pp. Hardback octavo, no jacket as issued, pictorial cover, as new condition. Michael Heazle 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/ASIN: 9781849710831. Our Book No: 14256. $30 AUD.

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press. 392 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, figures, minor edgewear. 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, David Lake and Donald Rothchild, 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/ASIN: 0691016909. Our Book No: 15049. $25 AUD.

New Haven: Yale University Press (YUP). 354 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket), minor edgewear jacket, tiny dent bottom edge front cover. Rebecca Lemov reports on Harvard psychologist Bert Kaplan who set out to build the largest database of sociological information ever assembled. It was the mid-1950s, just before the dawn of the digital age (and the later big data projects). Kaplan, along with anthropologist A. I. Hallowell and a team of researchers, gathered research from a varied range of non-European subjects among remote and largely non-literate peoples around the world. Kaplan saw future researchers using the data through the cutting-edge Readex machine. However, technological developments and the obsolescence of the theoretical framework rendered the project irrelevant, and soon it was forgotten. The database was intended as a repository of humankind’s most elusive ways of being human, that is, an anthropological archive. This is a book about those encounters between scientists and subjects, between knowledge and machines - as well as the data that flowed out of them and the ways these were preserved or not preserved.

London: Fourth Estate. 164 pp. Paperback trade, good plus condition, front cover creased, few page corners faintly creased, pages faintly toned as usual, minor edgewear. An invigorating book about the debates raging within China. We know that China has brought 300 million people from agricultural backwardness into modernity in just 30 years (something that took 200 years in Europe). 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. Mark Leonard asks us to forget everything we thought we knew about China and start again. 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.

Boris Yeltsin's attempts at democratic reform have plunged a long troubled Russia further into turmoil. Tim McDaniel explores the inability of all its leaders over the last two centuries - tsars and Communist rulers alike - to create the foundations of a viable modern society. The problem is rooted in a cultural trap endemic to Russian society and linked to a unique sense of destiny embodied by the Russian Idea - the belief that Russia can forge a path in the modern world that sets itself apart from the West through adherence to shared beliefs, community, and equality. When the Yeltsin government declared war on the Communist past, it broke with deeply held Russian values and traditions. McDaniel shows that in cutting people off from their pasts and promoting the West as the sole model of modernity, the reformers have simultaneously undermined the foundations of Russian morality and the people's sense of a future. Unwittingly, Yelsin annihilated its own authority. ISBN/ASIN: 0691002487. Our Book No: 17974. $20 AUD.

Data from recent surveys show how Americans have become increasingly disconnected from family, friends, neighbours, and social structures such as the PTA, church, recreation clubs, political parties. The shrinking access to the 'social capital' that is the reward of communal activity and community sharing is a serious threat to civic and personal health. Lack of social capital also strongly predicts crime rates. In the past, 100 years ago, America's stock of social capital was at an ebb, reduced by urbanization, industrialization, and immigration that uprooted Americans from their networks, similar to today. However, faced with this challenge, the country was able to right itself. ISBN/ASIN: 0743203046. Our Book No: 15986. $30 AUD.

521. Wheen, Francis (2009). Strange Days Indeed: The Golden Age of Paranoia (1st ed). London: Fourth Estate. 344 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, minor edgewear. Francis Wheen provides an hilarious and jaw-dropping chronicle of the 1970s, golden age of the paranoid style. The 1970s evokes memories of Abba and Fawlty Towers, but it was really a theme park of mass paranoia on the verge of a collective nervous breakdown, huddled over candles waiting for the next terrorist bomb, kidnapping or food shortage warning. Whether it was Nixon's demented behaviour in the White House, Idi Amin, Harold Wilson's insistence that 'they' were out to get him, or the trial of Rupert Bear, it is a story too fantastic to be true. With his acute sense of the absurd he exposes the sickly decade in which nations were brought to a halt by power cuts, military coups, economic anarchy and the arrival of Uri Geller.
