Humble origins 2 - Every place is itself By Mike Hales
Paperback: $4.47

Writing of places, that is, actual places; which is to say, the feeling of having been in an actual place. At a time in a life or collection of lives; which is to say, writing not ‘about’... More > something, but made out of something - made out of the trace that memory has constructed, of having been in that feeling-place.A lad sets out and finds himself (or not, as the case may be) in all sorts of places; in society - in culture, in imagination, in striving and making; furnishing parts of ‘success’, making his post-1944, baby-boomer’s, socially-mobile way through the world of professions and wage-work and position and expectation. Places in the heart too: locations in melancholy territory, where he wakes and goes to sleep each day and passes the hours between, wherever on the face of the globe he happens to be. This is a work in progress. A further five or six chapters may be added. This is the second of three volumes exploring 'humble origins' in differing times and modes.< Less
Activists and the Long March Home Ebook : Class Geography, Conviviality, Melancholy Territory - Humble Origins 3 By Mike Hales

The book is written... More > in three ‘voices’ represented in its subtitle. *Class geography* is a voice for the profound capacity of ordinary working people, to know, to make and to self-manage. *Melancholy territory* is a voice for the profound diversity of persons. And *conviviality* represents the commitment to liberation, enacted in forms of facilitative practice (one of the great political discoveries of the Baby-boomer generation), and in a dhamma path through the wild worldly landscape of human minds that have a long way to go, evolution-wise. This is work in progress (as are we ourselves!). The present version comprises prologue, three introductory chapters and postscript.

Science or Society extracts eBook By Mike Hales
eBook (PDF): $1.23
Science or Society? was published in association with the Channel 4 TV series, Crucible - Science in society, to illustrate the range of positions developed by the ‘the radical science... More > movement’ in Britain. The extracts in this present collection appear at the tail end of the book, where chapters are most explicit about the conceptual framework that underlies the discussion. In due course we hope to republish the whole book in this digital format. The now established notion of a field of Science and Technology Studies (STS) had not yet emerged, and Science or Society? was produced under the twin rubrics of ‘labour process theory’ and ‘cultural materialism’. Thirty-five years later these remain viable as theory-of-practice for science-and-society activists.
