Summary

Social media increasingly shapes the way in which we perceive conflicts and conflict parties abroad. Conflict parties, therefore, have started using social media strategically to influence public opinion abroad. This book explores the phenomenon by examining, (1) which strategies of external communication conflict parties use during asymmetric conflicts and (2) what shapes the selection of these communication strategies. In a comprehensive case study of the conflict in Israel and Palestine, Bernd Hirschberger shows that the selection of strategies of external communication is shaped by the (asymmetric) conflict structure.

    A look at the journalists and satirists who’ve helped transform the political landscape in the twenty-first century.  The New Blue Media traces the rise during the Bush years of new media stars: the news-saturated satire of The Onion, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report; the polemical assaults of Michael Moore and Air America; and the instant-messaging politics of MoveOn, Daily Kos, and the netroots. With the exception of Air America, all of these new media outlets have found commercial success—marking, says Hamm, a new era in liberal politics.   Does this new media matter? In 2004, both Michael Moore and MoveOn became major players; more recently, the influence of the netroots has sparked upheaval and debate within the Democratic Party. The New Blue Media examines this phenomenon in depth, and the reshaping of both the style and the substance of progressivism.

    An investigation into the foundations of democratic societies and the ongoing struggle over the power of concentrated wealthMuch of our politics today, Paul Starr writes, is a struggle over entrenchment—efforts to bring about change in ways that opponents will find difficult to undo. That is why the stakes of contemporary politics are so high. In this wide-ranging book, Starr examines how changes at the foundations of society become hard to reverse—yet sometimes are overturned. Overcoming aristocratic power was the formative problem for eighteenth-century revolutions. Overcoming slavery was the central problem for early American democracy. Controlling the power of concentrated wealth has been an ongoing struggle in the world’s capitalist democracies. The battles continue today in the troubled democracies of our time, with the rise of both oligarchy and populist nationalism and the danger that illiberal forces will entrench themselves in power. Entrenchment raises fundamental questions about the origins of our institutions and urgent questions about the future.

    Max Beer's book "The Life and Teaching of Karl Marx" is a comprehensive biography of the famous German philosopher, economist, and social theorist, Karl Marx. The book explores Marx's life and ideas in great detail, from his early childhood in Trier, Germany, to his intellectual development and eventual rise to prominence as one of the most influential thinkers of the 19th century. 
    Beer begins by discussing Marx's early years, including his upbringing in a family of Jewish descent and his education at the University of Bonn and the University of Berlin. From there, he traces Marx's intellectual journey, from his early interest in Hegelian philosophy to his later involvement in socialist and communist politics. 
    The book also explores the key ideas and theories that Marx developed throughout his career, including his concept of historical materialism, his critique of capitalism, and his vision of a classless society. Beer examines these ideas in detail, providing historical context and explaining their significance both in Marx's time and in the years since. 
    Throughout the book, Beer emphasizes the political and social context in which Marx lived and worked. He discusses the rise of industrial capitalism in Europe, the development of socialist and communist movements, and the political struggles that shaped Marx's ideas and career. 
    Overall, "The Life and Teaching of Karl Marx" provides a thorough and insightful exploration of one of the most important figures in modern history. It offers a valuable perspective on Marx's life, ideas, and legacy, and is an essential read for anyone interested in political philosophy, economics, or social theory.

    Moving beyond Fareed Zakaria's bestselling The Post-American World, veteran international correspondent Paul Starobin masterfully mixes fresh reportage with rigorous historical analysis to envision a world in which the United States is no longer the dominant superpower. The American Century has passed, argues Starobin, due in large part to America's military overreach in the Middle East; resurgent nationalism and economic expansion in Russia, China, and India; the tarnished American model of unfettered free-market capitalism; and the growth of transnational cultural, political, and economic institutions.Following an insightful analysis of America's global ascendancy, Starobin explores five possible scenarios for the future: an age of chaos like the one following the collapse of the Roman Empire; a multipolar order of nations in which America would be one great power among others; China becoming the dominant superpower; an age of global city-states; or a form of world government. A concluding section of the book explores how California—the eighth largest economy in the world and demographically and technologically among the most sophisticated spots on the planet—is already starting to move beyond the American Century. Thought-provoking and well argued, After America serves as an urgent catalyst to discussing America's evolving role in a dramatically changing world. Starobin's tone is sober but in the end hopeful—the world after America need not be a disaster for America, and it might even be liberating.

    Alan Dershowitz has been called "one of the most prominent and consistent defenders of civil liberties in America" by Politico and "the nation’s most peripatetic civil liberties lawyer and one of its most distinguished defenders of individual rights" by Newsweek. Yet he has come under intense criticism for his steadfast and consistent championing of those same principles, and his famed "shoe-on-the-other-foot test," to those who have been "cancelled" for any number of faults, both real and imagined. Cancel Culture is a defense of due process, free speech, and even-handedness in the application of judgment. It makes the case for restraint and care in decisions about whom and what to cancel, boycott, deplatform, and bar from public life, and offers recommendations for when, why, and to what degree these steps may be appropriate, as long as objective, fair-minded criteria can be determined and met. While Dershowitz argues against the worst excesses of cancel culture, he also acknowledges that its defenders ostensibly try to use it to create meaningful, positive change, and notes that cancelling may itself be a constitutionally protected form of free speech.In the end, Cancel Culture represents an icon in the defense of free speech and due process reckoning with the greatest challenge and threat to these rights since the rise of McCarthyism.
