    af Frank Pasquale

  • - Wealth Managers and the One Percent
    af Brooke Harrington

  • - Inside Japanese POW Camps
    af Sarah Kovner
    301,95 kr.

    Many Allied POWs in the Pacific theater of World War II suffered terribly. But abuse wasn't a matter of Japanese policy, as is commonly assumed.

Camps close to centers of imperial power tended to be less violent, and many POWs died from friendly fire.

  • - The Triumph and Peril of America's Alliances
    af Mira Rapp-Hooper
    260,95 kr.

    During the Cold War, the United States shook off its traditional aversion to alliances and built the most impressive peacetime treaty structure in history. Yet today politicians argue that the country is so secure it gains nothing paying the cost of mutual defense. In doing so, they threaten a key source of that security: the alliances themselves.

  • - The Psychology of Boredom
    af James Danckert & John D. Eastwood
    238,95 kr.

    Usually when we're bored, we try to distract ourselves. But soon enough, boredom returns. James Danckert and John Eastwood argue that we can learn to handle boredom more effectively by recognizing what research shows: boredom indicates unmet psychological needs. Boredom, therefore, can motivate us to change what isn't working in our lives.

  • - Heroes and History
    af Patrice Gueniffey

  • - Aesthetic Judgment and Capitalist Form
    af Sianne Ngai
    283,95 kr.

    Acclaimed critic Sianne Ngai theorizes the gimmick as an aesthetic category reflecting the fundamental laws of capitalism.

  • - Why New Realities Demand New Rights
    af William F. Schulz & Sushma Raman

    af Daniel B. Schwartz

  • - People and Power in New Rome
    af Anthony Kaldellis
    335,95 kr.

    Scholars have long claimed that the Eastern Roman Empire, a Christian theocracy, bore little resemblance to ancient Rome. Here, Anthony Kaldellis reconnects Byzantium to its Roman roots, arguing that it was essentially a republic, with power exercised on behalf of, and sometimes by, Greek-speaking citizens who considered themselves fully Roman.

  • - Paris and Modern Gastronomic Culture
    af Rebecca L. Spang
    207,95 kr.

    As Spang explains, during the 1760s and 1770s, sensitive, self-described sufferers made public show of their delicacy by going to the new establishments known as "restaurateurs' rooms" to sip bouillons. But these locations soon became sites for extending frugal, politically correct hospitality and later became symbols of aristocratic greed.

    af Reginald Horsman

  • af Victor Brombert
    338,95 kr.
