The Culture of Feedback book cover

The Culture of Feedback : Ecological Thinking in Seventies America by Daniel Belgrad

The Culture of Feedback digs deep into a dazzling variety of left-of-center experiences and attitudes from this misunderstood period, bringing us a new look at the wild side of the 1970s. Belgrad shows us how ideas from systems theory were taken up by the counterculture and the environmental movement, eventually influencing a wide range of beliefs and behaviors, particularly related to the question of what is and is not intelligence.” – University of Chicago Press

 

A Human Algorithim book cover

A Human Algorithm : How Artificial Intelligence is Redefining Who We Are by Flynn Coleman

A Human Algorithm: How Artificial Intelligence Is Redefining Who We Are examines the immense impact intelligent technology will have on humanity. These machines, while challenging our personal beliefs and our socio-economic world order, also have the potential to transform our health and well-being, alleviate poverty and suffering, and reveal the mysteries of intelligence and consciousness. International human rights attorney Flynn Coleman deftly argues that it is critical we instill values, ethics, and morals into our robots, algorithms, and other forms of AI.” – Counterpoint Press

 

The Rise of the Latino Vote book cover

The Rise of the Latino Vote : A History by Benjamin Francis-Fallon

“The impact of the Latino vote is a constant subject of debate among pundits and scholars. Will it sway elections? And how will the political parties respond to the growing number of voters who identify as Latino? A more basic and revealing question, though, is how the Latino vote was forged—how U.S. voters with roots in Latin America came to be understood as a bloc with shared interests. In The Rise of the Latino Vote, Benjamin Francis-Fallon shows how this diverse group of voters devised a common political identity and how the rise of the Latino voter has transformed the electoral landscape.” – Harvard University Press

 

Bond Girls book cover

Bond Girls : Body, Fashion and Gender by Monica Germanà

“Since Ursula Andress's white-bikini debut in Dr No, 'Bond Girls' have been simultaneously celebrated as fashion icons and dismissed as 'eye-candy'. But the visual glamour of the women of James Bond reveals more than the sexual objectification of female beauty. Through the original joint perspectives of body and fashion, this exciting study throws a new, subversive light on Bond Girls.” – Bloomsbury Publishing

 

Living by the Golden Rule book cover

Living by the Golden Rule : Mentor - Scholar - World Citizen : A Festschrift for Wolfgang Mieder's 75th Birthday edited by Andreas Nolte  and Dennis F. Mahoney

“This Festschrift for Wolfgang Mieder, preeminent paremiologist and folklorist, combines personal tributes and scholarly papers by colleagues, friends, and former students – presented in three categories that address his roles as a mentor, scholar, and world citizen over many decades.” [Publisher’s information] – Peter Lang International Academic Publishers
