HUMPING MY DRUM by J.A.Barnes PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: After a lifetime of not keeping a diary, John Barnes has reconstructed his past from a good memory and those few documents that do record... More > his life and times. His story starts with his childhood in Reading, his schooldays and undergraduate career. Although six years of war interrupted his academic progress, they gave him experiences in the Fleet Air Arm that may have prepared him for the rigors of his first anthropological fieldwork in Northern Rhodesia. The life of an academic is seldom smooth and various universities in England and Australia augmented his scholastic duties with ample tests of his diplomatic and political skills. In pages crowded with the names of colleagues, friends, family and rivals, Barnes brings a social scientist’s eye to bear on the disciplines of anthropology and sociology themselves.< Less

The Absentee Ballot is the story of my four-year journey into a liberal inferno. I had been on many unforgettable Italian vacations saturated with history, art and the world’s finest cuisine,... More > but I was left unprepared for what turned out to be a life’s lesson in the perils of socialism, or what we in America call liberalism. As a graduate in Sociology, I had anticipated the cultural differences and embraced them. But I was shocked by Italy’s over-taxation, immigration policies and those European realities that had been mischaracterized by the American media. With each ring of the inferno, I was faced with different issues crucial to both Europeans and Americans. Recent polls indicate an American indifference to affairs beyond their borders. But before voting in office proponents of socialized medicine, higher taxes and powerful unions, it’s crucial to understand how, if elected, those policies would affect your life. Allow my European parables to foreshadow your future governed by Democrats.< Less

Meghan Markle is easily one of the most fascinating public figures today and, arguably, in all of American history. A savvy, intelligent, biracial actress from a dysfunctional and often financially... More > struggling blended family, Markle became a household name after breaking big on her Canadian prime-time drama Suits and became a national treasure when she married into the British Royal Family. For fans, royal enthusiasts, even sociological experts and culture commentators, the liminality of the space Meghan Markle occupies makes her fascinating, polarizing, and nearly obsessively mysterious. Called a social climber, the implications of social strategizing are far more serious for a young mixed-race daughter of a Black mother: indeed, even in this postmodern, ultra-fluid, all-inclusive, increasingly globalist America, what is often applauded as “ambition” or “smart networking” for white women is still equated to ruthless “gold-digging” for Black women.< Less

What is love? What is art? In this book, you will be taken on a journey for the search for the meaning of love that meanders down many paths of love knowledge including science, anthropology,... More > philosophy, psychology, sociology, religion, and physics. Media study became the catalyst for understanding connection and communciation bridging a flow of interconnected ideas. Even at times the path wanders into areas of that seem far off the original question, media helped connect ideas that reshaped the way I see love, connection and disconnection. I have deconstructed and reconstructed love in over a hundred different ways traveling to many parts of the world and involving over 5,000 people in the creation of the work. Throughout the process, a constant review of art practices and ideologies helped place my work in the world of interdisciplinary, socially activist art. At a certain point, it is hard to see how anything is not relative to love. Love is life. My life is my art.< Less

More > characteristic erudition Epstein brings the reader to the origins of Russian intellectual tradition, showing how it continues to inform some of the most heated debates in modern Russia.

In this first issue of Why Social... More > Science Matters, six academic authors address this issue in response to a lead article by Professor Ranald Mcdonald. Change has become ubiquitous within Higher Education.

However, change need not be a bad thing, though we may not necessarily agree on what ‘for the better’ means.< Less
