""I am a Jew who was born and who grew up in a Catholic country; I never had a religious education; my Jewish identity is in large measure the result of persecution." This brief autobiographical statement is a key to understanding Carlo Ginzburg's interest in the topic of his latest book: distance. In nine linked essays, he addresses the question: "What is the exact distance that permits us to see things as they are?""--Jacket

Citizenship and consumption by Kate Soper( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Citizenship and Consumption provides a timely forum for current thinking on consumption and citizenship, exploring overlaps, interactions and tensions between them. Conventionally, citizenship and consumption have been treated as oppositional or exclusive spheres. Ideas of citizenship have developed in relative isolation from studies of consumption. Recent controversies about 'choice' and 'sustainability' as well as a new wave of consumer activism, by contrast, point to the complex civic dimensions of consumption. Bringing together experts from history, theory, media studies, law, and politics, this book retrieves alternative traditions of consumption and citizenship in West and East, past and present, and evaluates the civic prospects of consumption for the future."--BOOK JACKET
The politics and pleasures of consuming differently( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection offers a vital intervention in the context of this anxiety, disenchantment and openness to other ways of living. It engages with these developments as they are being reflected in culture and shaping experience in Britain, Europe and the United States. Its 'alternative hedonist' perspective informs an analysis that covers representations in film, TV and writing; new initiatives in the production and marketing of food; the ethics and politics of consumer choice; and philosophical and cultural enquiry into the nature of happiness and desire. Original, forcefully written and timely, it points towards a new interdisciplinary understanding of how the consumer society and its future will be theorised, researched and taught in higher education and beyond."--Jacket
Power/knowledge : selected interviews and other writings, 1972-1977 by Michel Foucault( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michel Foucault has become famous for a series of books that have permanently altered our understanding of many institutions of Western society. He analyzed mental institutions in the remarkable Madness and Civilization; hospitals in The Birth of the Clinic; prisons in Discipline and Punish; and schools and families in The History of Sexuality. But the general reader as well as the specialist is apt to miss the consistent purposes that lay behind these difficult individual studies, thus losing sight of the broad social vision and political aims that unified them. Now, in this superb set of essays and interviews, Foucault has provided a much-needed guide to Foucault. These pieces, ranging over the entire spectrum of his concerns, enabled Foucault, in his most intimate and accessible voice, to interpret the conclusions of his research in each area and to demonstrate the contribution of each to the magnificent - and terrifying - portrait of society that he was patiently compiling. For, as Foucault shows, what he was always describing was the nature of power in society; not the conventional treatment of power that concentrates on powerful individuals and repressive institutions, but the much more pervasive and insidious mechanisms by which power "reaches into the very grain of individuals, touches their bodies and inserts itself into their actions and attitudes, their discourses, learning processes and everyday lives" Foucault's investigations of prisons, schools, barracks, hospitals, factories, cities, lodgings, families, and other organized forms of social life are each a segment of one of the most astonishing intellectual enterprises of all time -- and, as this book proves, one which possesses profound implications for understanding the social control of our bodies and our minds." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/random046/79003308.html

The Freudian slip : psychoanalysis and textual criticism by Sebastiano Timpanaro( Book )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1985 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an iconoclastic work of great verve--with an introductory essay by Perry Anderson--Sebastiano Timpanaro submits the whole field of psychoanalysis to one of its most sustained and serious Marxist critiques. Using textual criticism, Timpanaro reconsiders the most famous cases of the 'slips' analyzed by Freud in The Psychopathology of Everyday Life, and argues that in virtually every case Freud's explanations of them are arbitrary or unnecessary. His book ends with a remarkable interpretation of the cultural and historical destiny of Freud's work within early twentieth-century thought. This edition of Timpanaro's compelling study also includes his essay 'Freud's Roman Phobia', originally published in New Left Review
