_Mike Featherstone____Body Modification

[Sage Publications Ltd_2000]

This fascinating collection explores the growing range of body modification practices such as piercing, tattooing, branding, cutting and inserting implants, which have sprung up recently in the West. It asks whether this implies that we are returning to traditional tribal practices of inscribing identities onto bodies on the part of ‘modern primitives’, or is body modification better understood as purely cosmetic and decorative with body markings merely temporary signs of transferable loyalties? Contributors address the question of the permanence of body transformation through fitness regimes and body building; look at the French performance artist Orlan and the Australian performance artist Stelarc who explored Western standard of beauty by experimenting on their own bodies with surgery and prosthetics; and explore the construction of the anatomy of a virtual body in Real Video Surgery and the Visible Human Project.

_Michel Feher____Nongovernmental Politics

[Zone Books_2007]

To be involved in politics without aspiring to govern, without seeking to be governed by the best leaders, without desiring to abolish all forms of government: such is the condition common to practitioners of nongovernmental politics. Whether these activists concern themselves with providing humanitarian aid, monitoring human rights violations, protecting the environment, educating consumers, or improving the safety of workers, the legitimacy and efficacy of their initiatives demand that they forsake conventional political ambitions. Yet even as they challenge specific governmental practices, nongovernmental activists are still operating within the realm of politics.

Composed of scholarly essays on the challenges and predicaments facing nongovernmental activism, profiles of unique and diverse NGOs (including Memorial, Global Exchange, World Vision, and Third World Network), and interviews with major nongovernmental actors (Gareth Evans of International Crisis Group, Anthony Romero of the ACLU, Rony Brauman of Médecins sans Frontières, and Peter Lurie of Public Citizen, among others), this book offers a groundbreaking survey of the rapidly expanding domain of nongovernmental activism. It examines nongovernmental activists’ motivations, from belief in the universality of human rights to concerns over the fairness of corporate stakeholders’ claims, and explores the multiple ways in which nongovernmental agencies operate. It analyzes the strategic options available and focuses on some of the most remarkable sites of NGO action, including borders, disaster zones, and the Internet. Finally, the book analyzes the conflicting agendas pursued by nongovernmental advocates–protecting civil society from the intrusions of governments that lack accountability or wresting the world from neo-liberal hegemony on the one hand and hastening the return of the Savior or restoring the social order prescribed by the Prophet on the other.

_Ernst Fehr/Robert Boyd/Samuel Bowles/Herbert Gintis____Moral Sentiments and Material Interests: The Foundations of Cooperation in Economic Life

[The MIT Press_2006]

Moral Sentiments and Material Interests presents an innovative synthesis of research in different disciplines to argue that cooperation stems not from the stereotypical selfish agent acting out of disguised self-interest but from the presence of “strong reciprocators” in a social group.

Presenting an overview of research in economics, anthropology, evolutionary and human biology, social psychology, and sociology, the book deals with both the theoretical foundations and the policy implications of this explanation for cooperation. Chapter authors in the remaining parts of the book discuss the behavioral ecology of cooperation in humans and nonhuman primates, modeling and testing strong reciprocity in economic scenarios, and reciprocity and social policy. The evidence for strong reciprocity in the book includes experiments using the famous Ultimatum Game (in which two players must agree on how to split a certain amount of money or they both get nothing.)

_Shoshana Felman____The Juridical Unconscious: Trials and Traumas in the Twentieth Century

[Harvard University Press_2002]

Death, wrote Walter Benjamin, lends storytellers all their authority. How do trials, in turn, borrow their authority from death? This book offers a groundbreaking account of the surprising interaction between trauma and justice.

Moving from texts by Arendt, Benjamin, Freud, Zola, and Tolstoy to the Dreyfus and Nuremberg trials, as well as the trials of O. J. Simpson and Adolf Eichmann, Shoshana Felman argues that the adjudication of collective traumas in the twentieth century transformed both culture and law. This transformation took place through legal cases that put history itself on trial, and that provided a stage for the expression of the persecuted–the historically “expressionless.”
Examining legal events that tried to repair the crimes and injuries of history, Felman reveals the “juridical unconscious” of trials and brilliantly shows how this juridical unconscious is bound up with the logic of the trauma that a trial attempts to articulate and contain but so often reenacts and repeats. Her book gives the drama of the law a new jurisprudential dimension and reveals the relation between law and literature in a new light.

_Paul Feyerabend____Conquest of Abundance: A Tale of Abstraction versus the Richness of Being

[University Of Chicago Press_1999]

From flea bites to galaxies, from love affairs to shadows, Paul Feyerabend reveled in the sensory and intellectual abundance that surrounds us. He found it equally striking that human senses and human intelligence are able to take in only a fraction of these riches. “This a blessing, not a drawback,” he writes. “A superconscious organism would not be superwise, it would be paralyzed.” This human reduction of experience to a manageable level is the heart of Conquest of Abundance, the book on which Feyerabend was at work when he died in 1994.
Prepared from drafts of the manuscript left at his death, working notes, and lectures and articles Feyerabend wrote while the larger work was in progress, Conquest of Abundance offers up rich exploration and startling insights with the charm, lucidity, and sense of mischief that are his hallmarks. Feyerabend is fascinated by how we attempt to explain and predict the mysteries of the natural world, and he looks at the ways in which we abstract experience, explain anomalies, and reduce wonder to formulas and equations. Through his exploration of the positive and negative consequences of these efforts, Feyerabend reveals the “conquest of abundance” as an integral part of the history and character of Western civilization.

“Paul Feyerabend . . . was the Norman Mailer of philosophy. . . . brilliant, brave, adventurous, original and quirky.”–Richard Rorty, New Republic

“As much a smudged icon as a philosophical position holder, [Feyerabend] was alluring and erotic, a torch singer for philosophical anarchy.”–Nancy Maull, New York Times Book Review

“[A] kind of final testament of Feyerabend’s thought . . . Conquest of Abundance is as much the product of a brilliant, scintillating style as of an immense erudition and culture. . . . This book is as abundant and rich as the world it envisions.”–Arkady Plotnitsky, Chicago Tribune

_Cliff Figallo____Hosting Web Communities: Building Relationships, Increasing Customer Loyalty, and Maintaining A Competitive Edge

[John Wiley & Sons_1998]

Former director of the Well, recent consultant to America Online, and current director of community development for Salon Magazine, Figallo knows what it takes to create a true community in cyberspace and what kinds of mistakes will torpedo the effort. Figallo believes that community comes from people, and so he begins by focusing on the human element. He writes about the groups that form online communities and how a community builder can foster the process. Figallo includes a great section on building a quality online staff. While he keeps technical aspects in perspective, Figallo doesn’t shortchange them–he fully discusses types of interfaces and technical tools.
Figallo’s discussion of the business side of a community is refreshingly hype-free. He provides excellent information on revenue models and support strategies. He further shows the advantages businesses can gain from creating or supporting online communities, plus what types of expectations are unrealistic. He believes, for example, that creating online communities is not a reasonable way to directly boost sales or provide a highly profitable income stream. He does show, however, that it can offer major corporate advantages in the same way that good public relations or other indirect marketing activities do. And while Figallo never claims that there’s an easy formula for building the type of online feeling that brings people back again and again, he demonstrates with both theory and real-world examples how dedicated community builders can pull it off. –Elizabeth Lewis


_Bruce Fink____Lacan to the Letter: Reading Ecrits Closely

[University of Minnesota Press_2004]

To read Lacan closely is to follow him to the letter, to take him literally, making the wager that he comes right out and says what he means in many cases, though much of his argument must be reconstructed through a line-by-line examination. And this is precisely what Bruce Fink does in this ambitious book, a fine analysis of Lacan’s work on language and psychoanalytic treatment conducted on the basis of a very close reading of texts in his Écrits: A Selection.
As a translator and renowned proponent of Lacan’s works, Fink is an especially adept and congenial guide through the complexities of Lacanian literature and concepts. He devotes considerable space to notions that have been particularly prone to misunderstanding, notions such as “the sliding of the signified under the signifier,”or that have gone seemingly unnoticed, such as “the ego is the metonymy of desire.” Fink also pays special attention to psychoanalytic concepts, like affect, that Lacan is sometimes thought to neglect, and to controversial concepts, like the phallus.
From a parsing of Lacan’s claim that “commenting on a text is like doing an analysis,” to sustained readings of “The Instance of the Letter in the Unconscious,” “The Direction of the Treatment,” and “Subversion of the Subject” (with particular attention given to the Graph of Desire), Fink’s book is a work of unmatched subtlety, depth, and detail, providing a valuable new perspective on one of the twentieth century’s most important thinkers.

[Ženska infoteka_2000]

U Berlinu 1942. živi Lilly Wust, ordenom nagrađena majka četvorice sinova i supruga nacističkog oficira. Njen se život zauvijek mijenja kada upozna i zaljubi se u Židovku, Felice Schragenheim.

Djelo istaknute austrijske književnice nastalo prema istinitom događaju čijom je ekranizacijom otvoren Berlinski filmski festival, istražuje i isprepliće dvije fascinantne teme, ljubav dvije žene i život pod nacističkim režimom.

_Paul A Fishwick____Aesthetic Computing

[The MIT Press_2006]

In Aesthetic Computing, key scholars and practitioners from art, design, computer science, and mathematics lay the foundations for a discipline that applies the theory and practice of art to computing. Aesthetic computing explores the way art and aesthetics can play a role in different areas of computer science. One of its goals is to modify computer science by the application of the wide range of definitions and categories normally associated with making art. For example, structures in computing might be represented using the style of Gaudi or the Bauhaus school. This goes beyond the usual definition of aesthetics in computing, which most often refers to the formal, abstract qualities of such structures–a beautiful proof, or an elegant diagram. The contributors to this book discuss the broader spectrum of aesthetics–from abstract qualities of symmetry and form to ideas of creative expression and pleasure–in the context of computer science. The assumption behind aesthetic computing is that the field of computing will be enriched if it embraces all of aesthetics. Human-computer interaction will benefit–”usability,” for example, could refer to improving a user’s emotional state–and new models of learning will emerge.

Aesthetic Computing approaches its subject from a variety of perspectives. After defining the field and placing it in its historical context, the book looks at art and design, mathematics and computing, and interface and interaction. Contributions range from essays on the art of visualization and “the poesy of programming” to discussions of the aesthetics of mathematics throughout history and transparency and reflectivity in interface design.

_Vilem Flusser/Andreas Strohl____Writings (Electronic Mediations)

[University of Minnesota Press_2002]

Ten years after his death, the reputation of Vilém Flusser as one of Europe’s most original modern philosophers continues to grow. Increasingly influential in Europe and Latin America, the Prague-born intellectual’s thought has until now remained largely unknown in the English-speaking world due to a lack of translations. His innovative writings theorize-and ultimately embrace-the epochal shift that humanity is undergoing from what he termed “linear thinking” (based on writing) toward a new form of multidimensional, visual thinking embodied by digital culture. For Flusser, these new modes and technologies of communication make possible a society (the “telematic” society) in which dialogue between people becomes the supreme value.
The first English-language anthology of Flusser’s work, this volume displays the extraordinary range and subtlety of his intellect. A number of the essays collected here introduce and elaborate upon his theory of communication, influenced by thinkers as diverse as Martin Buber, Edmund Husserl, and Thomas Kuhn. While taking dystopian, posthuman visions of communication technologies into account, Flusser celebrates their liberatory and humanizing aspects. For Flusser, existence was akin to being thrown into an abyss of absurd experience or “bottomlessness”; becoming human required creating meaning out of this painful event by consciously connecting with others, in part through such technologies. Other essays present Flusser’s thoughts on the future of writing, the revolutionary nature of photography, the relationship between exile and creativity, and his unconventional concept of posthistory. Taken together, these essays confirm Flusser’s importance and prescience within contemporary philosophy.
Vilém Flusser (1920-1991) was born in Prague, emigrated to Brazil, where he taught philosophy and wrote a daily newspaper column in São Paulo, and later moved to France. He wrote several books in Portuguese and German; The Shape of Things (1999) and Toward a Philosophy of Photography (2000) have been translated into English.
Andreas Ströhl is director of the film department at the Goethe-Institut Inter Nationes in Munich.
Erik Eisel, who received his PhD in Comparative Literature from UCLA, currently works for a software technology company in Southern California.

_Vilem Flusser/Vilém Flusser____The Shape of Things

[Reaktion Books_1999]

This book presents for the first time in English an array of essays on design by the seminal media critic and philosopher Vilém Flusser. It puts forward the view that our future depends on design. In a series of insightful essays on such ordinary “things” as wheels, carpets, pots, umbrellas and tents, Flusser emphasizes the interrelationships between art and science, theology and technology, and archaeology and architecture. Just as formal creativity has produced both weapons of destruction and great works of art, Flusser believed that the shape of things (and the designs behind them) represents both a threat and an opportunity for designers of the future.


_Wes Folkerth____The Sound of Shakespeare


This book is about the role of sound in Shakespeare’s art and about what it means for us centuries later. Wes Folkerth discovers the different aesthetic and ethical dispositions Shakespeare regularly associates with sound, including vulnerability, community, access to the deeply subjective or pre-articulated self, grotesque continuity and transformation, economies of free-flowing expenditure and ethical dispositions, such as obedience, assent and belief. References to sound and hearing abound throughout Shakespeare’s plays, and by listening to Shakespeare himself listening, we derive a better understanding of why his works continue to resonate so strongly today.


_Byrne Fone____Homophobia : A History


In this tour de force of historical and literary research, Fone, an acclaimed expert on gay and lesbian history and professor emeritus at the City University of New York, chronicles the evolution of homophobia through the centuries. Delving into literary sources as diverse as Greek philosophy, Elizabethan poetry, the Bible, and the Victorian novel, as well as historical texts and propaganda ranging from the French Revolution to the Moral Majority to the transcripts of current TV talk shows, Fone reveals how and why same-sex desire has long been the object of legal, social, religious, and political persecution.


_Michel Foucault____Psychiatric Power: Lectures at the College de France 1973-1974

[Palgrave Macmillan_2006]

In this new addition to the Collge de France lecture series, Michel Foucaults historical enquiry into the uses and techniques of power and knowledge finds itself directed towards a study of the birth of psychiatry. Psychiatric Power shows not only how Western societys division of the mad from the sane began, but also how society, medicine, and law and their treatment of the mad developed into what we now recognize as modern psychiatry, and how modern social and political attitudes towards madness developed. A seminal work by this leading thinker of the modern age, Psychiatric Power builds on Foucaults published writings while opening new vistas within historical and philosophical study.

_Michel Foucault____Security, Territory, Population (Lectures at the College De France)

[Palgrave Macmillan_2007]

This new title in the Collge de France Lecture Series charts a new development in Michel Foucault’s thinking. Starting from the notion of ‘bio-power’ developed in the previous 1976 course, Society Must be Defended, Foucault explores the birth of the modern nation state in the Eighteenth Century through an analysis of its adminstration of institutionalized power relations, beginning with the fundamental technologies of security.

_Michel Foucault____Le gouvernement de soi et des autres : Cours au Collège de France (1982-1983)



_Michel Foucault____Sécurité, territoire, population : Cours au Collège de France (1977-1978)


Les deux cours de Michel Foucault, que nous publions simultanément, Sécurité, territoire, population (1978) et Naissance de la biopolitique (1979), forment un diptyque dont l’unité réside dans la problématique du biopouvoir, introduite pour la première fois en 1976. C’est par le rappel de ce concept que s’ouvre le premier cours ; c’est lui également qui signale, dès le titre, le programme du second. En ce sens, les deux cours retracent la genèse de ce « pouvoir sur la vie » dans l’émergence duquel, au XVIIIe siècle, Foucault voyait une « mutation capitale, l’une des plus importantes sans doute, dans l’histoire des sociétés humaines ».
La mise en œuvre de ce projet conduit toutefois à des détours : l’étude annoncée des mécanismes par lesquels l’espèce humaine est rentrée, au XVIIIe siècle, dans une stratégie générale de pouvoir présentée comme l’esquisse d’une « histoire des technologies de sécurité » cède la place dans le premier cours au projet d’une histoire de la « gouvernementalité » depuis les premiers siècles de l’ère chrétienne. De même, l’analyse des conditions de formation de la biopolitique, dans le second cours, s’efface-t-elle au profit de celle de la gouvernementalité libérale. Ainsi le centre de gravité des cours se déplace-t-il de la question du biopouvoir vers celle du gouvernement, annonçant un tournant qui mènera Foucault, quelques années plus tard à la problématique du « gouvernement de soi et des autres ».


_Michel Foucault____L’Hermeneutique du sujet : Cours au Collège de France (1981-1982)



_Michel Foucault____Naissance de la biopolitique : Cours au collège de France (1978-1979)


Le cours prononcé par Michel Foucault au Collège de France de janvier à avril 1979, Naissance de la biopolitique, s’inscrit dans la continuité de celui de l’année précédente, Sécurité, Territoire, Population. Après avoir montré comment l’économie politique, au XVIIIe siècle, marque la naissance d’une nouvelle raison gouvernementale – gouverner moins, par souci d’efficacité maximum, en fonction de la naturalité des phénomènes auxquels on a affaire -, Michel Foucault entreprend l’analyse des formes de cette gouvernementalité libérale. Il s’agit de décrire la rationalité politique à l’intérieur de laquelle ont été osés les problèmes spécifiques de la vie et de la population : ” Etudier le libéralisme comme cadre général de la biopolitique. ” Quels sont les traits spécifiques de l’art libéral de gouverner, tel qu’il se dessine au XVIIIe siècle ? Quelle crise de gouvernementalité caractérise le monde actuel et à quelles révisions du gouvernement libéral a-t-elle donné lieu ? C’est à cette tâche de diagnostic que répond l’étude des deux grandes écoles néolibérales du XXe siècle, l’ordolibéralisme allemand et le néolibéralisme de l’Ecole de Chicago – unique incursion de Michel Foucault, tout au long de son enseignement au Collège de France, dans le champ de l’histoire contemporaine. Cette analyse met en évidence le rôle paradoxal que joue la ” société ” par rapport au gouvernement : principe au nom duquel celui-ci tend à s’autolimiter, mais cible également d’une intervention gouvernementale permanente, pour produire, multiplier et garantir les libertés nécessaires au libéralisme économique. La société civile, loin de s’opposer à l’Etat, est donc le corrélatif de la technologie libérale de gouvernement.


_Michel Foucault____Society Must Be Defended: Lectures at the College de France, 1975-1976


From 1971 until 1984 at the Collge de France, Michel Foucault gave a series of lectures ranging freely and conversationally over the range of his research. In Society Must Be Defended, Foucault deals with the emergence in the early seventeenth century of a new understanding of war as the permanent basis of all institutions of power, a hidden presence within society that could be deciphered by an historical analysis. Tracing this development, Foucault outlines the genealogy of power and knowledge that had become his dominant concern.

_Michel Foucault____The Hermeneutics of the Subject: Lectures at the College de France 1981-1982


The Hermeneutics of the Subject is the third volume in the collection of Michel Foucaults lectures at the Collge de France, where Foucaults candid and wide-ranging lectures influenced groundbreaking works like The History of Sexuality and Madness and Civilization. In the lectures comprising this volume, Foucault focuses on how the self and the care of the self have been conceived during the period of antiquity, beginning with Socrates. The problems of the ethical formation of the self, Foucault argues, form the background for modern conceptions of the self and remain at the center of contemporary moral thought. Engaging and provocative, The Hermeneutics of the Subject reveals Foucault at the height of his powers.

_Andre Gunder Frank____ReORIENT: Global Economy in the Asian Age

[University of California Press_1998]

Andre Gunder Frank asks us to ReOrient our views away from Eurocentrism–to see the rise of the West as a mere blip in what was, and is again becoming, an Asia-centered world. In a bold challenge to received historiography and social theory he turns on its head the world according to Marx, Weber, and other theorists, including Polanyi, Rostow, Braudel, and Wallerstein. Frank explains the Rise of the West in world economic and demographic terms that relate it in a single historical sweep to the decline of the East around 1800. European states, he says, used the silver extracted from the American colonies to buy entry into an expanding Asian market that already flourished in the global economy. Resorting to import substitution and export promotion in the world market, they became Newly Industrializing Economies and tipped the global economic balance to the West. That is precisely what East Asia is doing today, Frank points out, to recover its traditional dominance. As a result, the “center” of the world economy is once again moving to the “Middle Kingdom” of China. Anyone interested in Asia, in world systems and world economic and social history, in international relations, and in comparative area studies, will have to take into account Frank’s exciting reassessment of our global economic past and future.

_Thomas Frank____What’s the Matter with Kansas? How Conservatives Won the Heart of America

[Metropolitan Books_2004]

The largely blue collar citizens of Kansas can be counted upon to be a “red” state in any election, voting solidly Republican and possessing a deep animosity toward the left. This, according to author Thomas Frank, is a pretty self-defeating phenomenon, given that the policies of the Republican Party benefit the wealthy and powerful at the great expense of the average worker. According to Frank, the conservative establishment has tricked Kansans, playing up the emotional touchstones of conservatism and perpetuating a sense of a vast liberal empire out to crush traditional values while barely ever discussing the Republicans’ actual economic policies and what they mean to the working class. Thus the pro-life Kansas factory worker who listens to Rush Limbaugh will repeatedly vote for the party that is less likely to protect his safety, less likely to protect his job, and less likely to benefit him economically. To much of America, Kansas is an abstract, “where Dorothy wants to return. Where Superman grew up.” But Frank, a native Kansan, separates reality from myth in What’s the Matter with Kansas and tells the state’s socio-political history from its early days as a hotbed of leftist activism to a state so entrenched in conservatism that the only political division remaining is between the moderate and more-extreme right wings of the same party. Frank, the founding editor of The Baffler and a contributor to Harper’s and The Nation, knows the state and its people. He even includes his own history as a young conservative idealist turned disenchanted college Republican, and his first-hand experience, combined with a sharp wit and thorough reasoning, makes his book more credible than the elites of either the left and right who claim to understand Kansas. –John Moe

_Thomas Frank____The Conquest of Cool: Business Culture, Counterculture, and the Rise of Hip Consumerism

[University Of Chicago Press_1998]

In his book-length essay The Conquest of Cool, Thomas Frank explores the ways in which Madison Avenue co-opted the language of youthful ’60s rebellion. It is “the story,” Frank writes, “of the bohemian cultural style’s trajectory from adversarial to hegemonic; the story of hip’s mutation from native language of the alienated to that of advertising.” This appropriation had wide-ranging consequences that deeply transformed our culture–consequences that linger in the form of ’90s “hip consumerism.” (Think of Nike using the song “Revolution” to sell sneakers, or Coca-Cola using replicas of Ken Kesey’s bus to peddle Fruitopia.)
This is no simplistic analysis of how the counterculture “sold out” to big business. Instead, Frank shows how the counterculture and business culture influenced one another. In fact, he writes, the counterculture’s critique of mass society mimicked earlier developments in business itself, when a new generation of executives attacked the stultified, hierarchical nature of corporate life. Counterculture and business culture evolved together over time–until the present day, when they have become essentially the same thing. According to Frank, the ’60s live on in the near-archetypal dichotomy of “hip” and “square,” now part of advertising vernacular, signifying a choice between consumer styles.

_Michael Freeden____Političke ideologije


Političke ideologije su zbir prvorazrednih eseja o najznačajnjijim ideologijama prošlog (a kako se čini i ovog) stoljeća, nastalih iz pera političkih teoretičara i povjesničara, priznatih autoriteta za pojedina područja. Odabir, kao i uvodni i zaključni članak, potpisuje oksfordski profesor Michael Freeden, jedan od najcjenjenijih politologa današnjice.

Svako od deset poglavlja donosi povijesni razvoj, kritički pregled i trenutno stanje vladajućih zapadnjačkih ideoloških sustava: marksizma i postmarksizma, socijalizma, kršćanske demokracije, fašizma, nove desnice, konzervativizma, nacionalizma, feminizma i politike zelenih.

Ova knjiga je već nekoliko godina (izašla je 2001.) nezaobilazno štivo i za studente i za specijaliste, a ujedno i ozbiljan protuargument zagovornicima “kraja ideologija”: ona zorno pokazuje kako je nemoguće promatrati razvoj političkih zbivanja bez razumijevanja njihovog ideološkog konteksta.

_Jill T. Freeze____Sams Teach Yourself Computer Basics in 24 Hours


Teach Yourself Computer Basics in 24 Hours uses a friendly tone to introduce its readers to home computing. Author Jill Freeze does her readers a favor by acknowledging that most of them don’t care about the electronic inner workings of their computer equipment, and really just want to make the blasted box do something useful. That means learning to use the operating system–Freeze uses Microsoft Windows 98, Second Edition, in her examples. She walks the reader through basic mouse maneuvers and the fundamentals of launching programs and using files (and even customizing the appearance of Windows) before explaining hardware terminology. Multimedia and three of the programs in Microsoft Office 2000 (Word, Excel, and Access) also receive valuable attention.
Internet connectivity gets adequate coverage, with emphasis on using Internet Explorer and Outlook Express to view Web pages and communicate via electronic mail, respectively. Future editions of this book ought to take into account the fact that networking isn’t just for businesses anymore. Home networks are becoming increasingly popular, and Windows makes it rather easy to set them up. A few chapters on setting up a network–including the use of Windows Internet Connection Sharing feature–would really appeal to Freeze’s target audience. Regardless, this book makes good reading for Windows newcomers. –David Wall
Topics covered: Microsoft Windows 98, Second Edition, and its related hardware and software, tailored for absolute novices. Coverage includes basic mouse skills, launching programs, managing files, using Microsoft Office 2000, connecting to the Internet via a modem, and using Internet software.

_Jeffrey E. F. Friedl____Mastering Regular Expressions


Regular expressions are a central element of UNIX utilities like egrep and programming languages such as Perl. But whether you’re a UNIX user or not, you can benefit from a better understanding of regular expressions since they work with applications ranging from validating data-entry fields to manipulating information in multimegabyte text files. Mastering Regular Expressions quickly covers the basics of regular-expression syntax, then delves into the mechanics of expression-processing, common pitfalls, performance issues, and implementation-specific differences. Written in an engaging style and sprinkled with solutions to complex real-world problems, Mastering Regular Expressions offers a wealth information that you can put to immediate use.

_Matthew Fuller____Media Ecologies : Materialist Energies in Art and Technoculture

[The MIT Press_2005]

In Media Ecologies, Matthew Fuller asks what happens when media systems interact. Complex objects such as media systems –understood here as processes, or elements in a composition as much as “things” — have become informational as much as physical, but without losing any of their fundamental materiality. Fuller looks at this multiplicitous materiality — how it can be sensed, made use of, and how it makes other possibilities tangible. He investigates the ways the different qualities in media systems can be said to mix and interrelate, and, as he writes, “to produce patterns, dangers, and potentials.”

Fuller draws on texts by Felix Guattari and Gilles Deleuze as well as writings by Friedrich Nietzsche, Marshall McLuhan, Donna Haraway, Friedrich Kittler, and others, to define and extend the idea of “media ecology.” Arguing that the only way to find out about what happens when media systems interact is to carry out such interactions, Fuller traces a series of media ecologies — “taking every path in a labyrinth simultaneously,” as he describes one chapter. He looks at contemporary London-based pirate radio and its interweaving of high- and low-tech media systems; the “medial will to power” illustrated by “the camera that ate itself”; how, as seen in a range of compelling interpretations of new media works, the capacities and behaviors of media objects are affected when they are in “abnormal” relationships with other objects; and each step in a sequence of Web pages, Cctv — world wide watch, that encourages viewers to report crimes seen via webcams.

Contributing to debates around standardization, cultural evolution, cybernetic culture, and surveillance, and inventing a politically challenging aesthetic that links them, Media Ecologies, with its various narrative speeds, scales, frames of references, and voices, does not offer the academically traditional unifying framework; rather, Fuller says, it proposes to capture “an explosion of activity and ideas to which it hopes to add an echo.”

_Matthew Fuller____Behind the Blip: Essays on the Culture of Software


A far-reaching and strikingly original collection of essays on the “culture of software” by British new-media critic Matthew Fuller, Behind the Blip looks at the many ways in which the ostensibly neutral user interfaces, search engines, “intelligent agents,” and word processors that are now part of our everyday life are actively reshaping the way we look at and interact with the world.
