The Jungle (Graphic Novel)
25,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A compelling graphic novel adaptation of Upton Sinclair's seminal protest novel that brings to life the harsh conditions and exploited existences of immigrants in Chicago's meatpacking industry in the early twentieth century.Long acclaimed around the world, Upton Sinclair's 1906 muckraking novel The Jungle remains a powerful book even today. Not many works of literature can boast that their publication brought about actual social and labor change, but that's just what The Jungle did, as it led to the passage of the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906. In today's society, where labor and safety of the food we eat remain key concerns for all, Sinclair's shocking story still resonates. Bringing new life and energy to this classic work, adapter and illustrator Kristina Gehrmann takes Sinclair's prose and transforms it through pen and ink, allowing you to discover (or rediscover) this book and see it from a whole new perspective.

Überwachungspraxen – Praktiken der Überwachung
37,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Überwachung ist nicht einfach da, sondern passiert – durch eine Vielzahl von Tätigkeiten und Handlungen wird sie als soziale Tatsache erst hergestellt. Überwachung bringt Menschen über Technologien oder durch Gesetze und Vorschriften vermittelt in Berührung und stellt soziale Beziehungen her. Kurz: Es wird gehandelt und Praxen bilden sich heraus. Die hier versammelten Beiträge erkunden, wie diese Praxen und Handlungen konkret aussehen. An einem gewissen Punkt innerhalb einer Abfolge von Entscheidungen und rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen, theoretischen Annahmen und technologischen Voraussetzungen ist Überwachen eine Tätigkeit, mit der Menschen miteinander oder über Technologien oder durch Gesetze und Vorschriften vermittelt in Berührung geraten, durch die gehandelt wird, mit der sich Praxen herausbilden. An diesen Stellen kann man Überwachung arbeiten sehen – auch wenn sie dann vielleicht nicht so bezeichnet wird oder auf den ersten Blick als solche zu erkennen ist. Die Betonung liegt deshalb auf den Praktiken von Überwachung (Kontrolle, Überprüfung), weil damit die tatsächlichen Aushandlungsprozesse deutlich werden, anhand derer Überwachung im Grossen analysierbar wird. So wichtig auch theoretische Betrachtungen und Reflexionen sind, so entscheidend sind die vielen kleinen Bausteine, die sich aus den alltäglichen Handlungen und den Konstanten des Alltags ergeben können. Aus dem Inhalt: Nils Zurawski, Die praktischen Dimensionen von Überwachung, Kontrolle und Überprüfung Dietmar Kammerer, Das Werden der „Kontrolle“: Herkunft und Umfang eines Deleuze‘schen Begriffs Oliver Bidlo, 1414 – Ins elektronische Panoptikum der sozialen Kontrolle oder: Das Bild hat immer recht Kendra Briken, Safety never takes a holiday – Überwachungspraxis im und als Arbeitsalltag Nils Zurawski, „Budni, ist doch Ehrensache!“ – Kundenkarten als Kontrollinstrument und die Alltäglichkeit des Einkaufens Inga Klein, Überwachte Sicherheit oder sichere Überwachung?

The Darkest Days

The centenary of the outbreak of the First World War may be commemorated by some as a great moment of national history. But the standard history of Britain's choice for war is far from the truth. Using a wide range of sources, including the personal papers of many of the key figures, some for the first time, historian Douglas Newton presents a new, dramatic narrative. He interleaves the story of those pressing for a choice for war with the story of those resisting Britain's descent into calamity. He shows how the decision to go to war was rushed, in the face of vehement opposition, in the Cabinet and Parliament, in the Liberal and Labour press, and in the streets. There was no democratic decision for war.The history of this opposition has been largely erased from the record, yet it was crucial to what actually happened in August 1914. Two days before the declaration of war four members of the Cabinet resigned in protest at the war party's manipulation of the crisis. The government almost disintegrated. Meanwhile large crowds gathered in Trafalgar Square to hear the case for neutrality and peace. Yet this cry was ignored by the government. Meanwhile, elements of the press, the Foreign Office, and the Tory Opposition sought to browbeat the government into a quick decision. Belgium had little to do with it.The key decision to enter the war was made before Belgium was invaded. Those bellowing for hostilities were eager for Britain to enter any war in solidarity with Russia and France - for the future safety of the British Empire. In particular Newton shows how Prime Minister H. H. Asquith, Foreign Minister Sir Edward Grey, and First Lord of the Admiralty Winston Churchill colluded to pre-empt the decisions of Cabinet, to manipulate the parliament, and to hurry the nation toward intervention by any means necessary.

The End of Policing
18,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

The problem is not overpolicing, it is policing itself Recent years have seen an explosion of protest and concern about police brutality and repression--especially after months of violent protest erupted in Ferguson, Missouri following the police killing of Mike Brown. Much of the conversation has focused on calls for enhancing police accountability, increasing police diversity, improving police training, and emphasizing community policing. Unfortunately, none of these is likely to produce results, because they fail to get at the core of the problem. The problem is policing itself--the dramatic expansion of the police role over the last 40 years. This book attempts to jog public discussion of policing by revealing the tainted origins of modern policing as a tool of social control and demonstrating how the expanded role of the police is inconsistent with community empowerment, social justice--even public safety. Drawing on first-hand research from across the globe, Alex Vitale shows how the implementation of alternatives to policing, like drug legalization, regulation, and harm reduction instead of the policing of drugs, has led to reductions in crime, spending, and injustice.

Ttip
30,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) has stirred passions like no other trade negotiation in recent history. Its supporters maintain that TTIP will produce spectacular growth and job creation; claims that are wholeheartedly rejected by its critics, who regard TTIP as a direct assault on workers' rights, health and safety standards and public services. In this incisive analysis, Gabriel Siles-Brugge and Ferdi de Ville scrutinize the claims made by TTIP's cheerleaders and scaremongers to reveal a far more nuanced picture behind the headlines. TTIP will not provide an economic 'cure-all', nor will it destroy the European welfare state in one fell swoop. Thanks to unprecedented levels of protest and debate around TTIP, however, neoliberal trade negotiations are well and truly back in the spotlight. In this respect, TTIP could well prove to be a 'game-changer' - just not in the way imagined by its backers.

A Distant Light
69,90 CHF *

A collection of essays by a Nobel Prize Laureate on a wide range of critical issues facing the world, and the role of scientists in solving these problems. Kendall has been closely involved with the Union of Concerned Scientists, a group that began as an informal assocation at MIT in 1969 to protest US involvement in Vietnam and is today an organization with an annual budget exceeding $6 million, with 100,000 supporters worldwide. UCD is today a voice of authority in US government science policy, particularly with regard to environment issues, most recently the worldwide initiatives on global warming. Together, these essays represent both the sucessses and failures of science to impact public policy, the challenges facing scientists, and offers practical guidelines for involvement in science policy. The essays are roughly chronological, organized by subject with introductions, beginning with the controversies on nuclear power safety and Three Mile Island,then followed by sections on national security issues, global environmental and resource problems,and radioactive cleanup and other current issues. Kendall's Nobel Prize lecture as well as a more popular version thereof is also included (and is the only really technical material in the book). The photos in the book are Kendall's, from an 1992 exhibition of his work. Henry Kendall was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics (jointly with J.I.Friedman and R.E. Taylor) in 1990 for his research in the structure of the proton and netron. In 1969, he was one of a group of physicist who founded the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) and is currently Chairman of its Board of Directors.

2018 RITA award-winning author! THE EARL DOTH PROTEST . . . For businessman Heath Hextall, inheriting an earldom has been a damnable nuisance. The answer: find a well-bred, biddable woman to keep his life in order and observe the required social niceties. But it's always been clear that Lady Josephine Somerhall is not that woman. Once a shy slip of a girl, Joss is now brilliant, beautiful chaos in a ball gown. . . . BUT THE LADY KNOWS BEST In her heart, Joss has always loved Heath, the one person she's always been able to count on. That doesn't mean she wants to marry him though. Without a husband, Joss can do as she pleases-and now, it pleases her to solve the mystery of an encoded file given to Heath by a dying man. It's put Heath in peril once, and Joss won't let that happen again. She'll do what she must to ensure the earl's safety. And to remind him that what she lacks in convention, she makes up for in passion.
