Lake Michigan, a series of 19 lyric poems, imagines a prison camp located on the beaches of Chicago that is privatized, racially segregated, and overrun by a brutal police force. Thinking about the ways in which economic policy, racism, and militarized policing combine to shape the city, Lake Michigan's poems explore the themes of estrangement, state violence and capitalist exploitation, and take a hard look at neoliberal urbanism in the historic city of Chicago.

Σ’ αυτό το εκπληκτικό μυθιστόρημα ο Καρλ Ούβε Κνάουσγκορντ αναμετράται με την ίδια του τη ζωή με επώδυνη ειλικρίνεια. Γράφει για τα παιδικά χρόνια και την εφηβεία του, το πάθος του για τη ροκ μουσική, τη σχέση του με μια σχεδόν ανύπαρκτη μητέρα που όμως αγαπούσε, αλλά και τον απόμακρο, απρόβλεπτο πατέρα του, ο θάνατος του οποίου επέφερε όχι μόνο οδύνη αλλά και σύγχυση. Από τη στιγμή που ο Καρλ Ούβε γίνεται και ο ίδιος γονιός πρέπει να εξισορροπήσει τις απαιτήσεις που έχει η φροντίδα μιας οικογένειας με την αποφασιστικότητά του να γράψει σπουδαία λογοτεχνία. Με το Ένας θάνατος στην οικογένεια, το πρώτο μέρος μιας εξάτομης λογοτεχνικής αυτοβιογραφίας που έχει προκαλέσει παγκόσμια αίσθηση, ο Κνάουσγκορντ συνέθεσε μια πανανθρώπινη ιστορία για τις συγκρούσεις, με τις οποίες ερχόμαστε αντιμέτωποι στη ζωή μας, σ’ αυτόν τον αγώνα που είναι η ζωή μας. Ένα βιβλίο απολύτως σαγηνευτικό, ικανό να συμπαρασύρει τον ευαίσθητο αναγνώστη, γραμμένο με μια βραδυφλεγή ένταση, σαν να εξαρτάται από αυτό η ίδια η ύπαρξη του συγγραφέα. Το πρώτο βιβλίο της μυθιστορηματικής σειράς Ο αγώνας μου.

Social service providers are under increasing pressure to demonstrate that their programmes work. Faced with this demand for greater accountability, providers are turning to performance measurement as a way of illustrating programme efficiency, quality and effectiveness. The authors of this comprehensive volume discuss why and how performance measures have become an integral part of managing programmes in the social services. They explain the various types of performance measures - including numeric counts, standardized measures and client satisfaction - and assess their advantages and disadvantages. A case study and exercises are a special feature of the book.

Formations Of The Secular

Opening with the provocative query “what might an anthropology of the secular look like?” this book explores the concepts, practices, and political formations of secularism, with emphasis on the major historical shifts that have shaped secular sensibilities and attitudes in the modern West and the Middle East. Talal Asad proceeds to dismantle commonly held assumptions about the secular and the terrain it allegedly covers. He argues that while anthropologists have oriented themselves to the study of the “strangeness of the non-European world” and to what are seen as non-rational dimensions of social life (things like myth, taboo, and religion),the modern and the secular have not been adequately examined. The conclusion is that the secular cannot be viewed as a successor to religion, or be seen as on the side of the rational. It is a category with a multi-layered history, related to major premises of modernity, democracy, and the concept of human rights. This book will appeal to anthropologists, historians, religious studies scholars, as well as scholars working on modernity.

Poetry. Latino/Latina Studies. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the Spanish by Daniel Borzutzky. "I sang the song of the old concrete sheds. It was filled with hundreds of niches, one over the other. There is a country in each one; they're like boys, they're dead." In this landmark poem, written at the height of the Pinochet dictatorship, major Chilean poet Raul Zurita protests with ferocious invention the extinguishment of a generation and the brutalization of a nation. Of the role of poetry and of his own treatment by the military under this regime, Zurita has said, "You see, the only thing that told me that I wasn't crazy, that I wasn't living in a nightmare, was this file of poems, and then when they threw them into the sea, then I understood exactly what was happening." This elegy refuses to be an elegy, refuses to let the Disappeared disappear.

Companies constantly present technological developments-new materials, new mechanisms, and new ways to enhance existing products and services. Yet these seldom lead to truly new ideas. Why? Humans are all born with creative instincts, but in the interest of efficient and predictable productivity, institutions such as schools and businesses routinely hinder those impulses. The most innovative products and services, author Alexander Manu argues, arise out of the behaviors of play--the ability to imagine, without limits, the question "What if…?" Manu's engaging and inspiring book offers companies a wealth of practical advice and tactics to unleash their full creative potential and break ahead of the crowd. Manu's provocative, insightful applied methodologies for creating new business opportunities and transformative innovations gain resonance from real-world scenarios and conversations with leading innovators such as MIT's Mitchel Resnick. Readers will learn strategies to: Open their companies' eyes to unseen opportunities Spark the imagination and trigger the potential of product innovation teams Turn inspired ideas into successful products and services. Imagination Challenge is an AIGA Design Press book, published under Peachpit's New Riders imprint in partnership with AIGA.
