_Alexander R. Galloway____Gaming : Essays On Algorithmic Culture

[Univ Of Minnesota Press_2006]

Video games have been a central feature of the cultural landscape for over twenty years and now rival older media like movies, try television, order and music in popularity and cultural influence. Yet there have been relatively few attempts to understand the video game as an independent medium. Most such efforts focus on the earliest generation of text-based adventures (Zork, for example) and have little to say about such visually and conceptually sophisticated games as Final Fantasy X, Shenmue, Grand Theft Auto, Halo, and The Sims, in which players inhabit elaborately detailed worlds and manipulate digital avatars with a vast—and in some cases, almost unlimited—array of actions and choices. In Gaming, Alexander Galloway instead considers the video game as a distinct cultural form that demands a new and unique interpretive framework. Drawing on a wide range of disciplines, particularly critical theory and media studies, he analyzes video games as something to be played rather than as texts to be read, and traces in five concise chapters how the “algorithmic culture” created by video games intersects with theories of visuality, realism, allegory, and the avant-garde. If photographs are images and films are moving images, then, Galloway asserts, video games are best defined as actions. Using examples from more than fifty video games, Galloway constructs a classification system of action in video games, incorporating standard elements of gameplay as well as software crashes, network lags, and the use of cheats and game hacks. In subsequent chapters, he explores the overlap between the conventions of film and video games, the political and cultural implications of gaming practices, the visual environment of video games, and the status of games as an emerging cultural form. Together, these essays offer a new conception of gaming and, more broadly, of electronic culture as a whole, one that celebrates and does not lament the qualities of the digital age. Alexander R. Galloway is assistant professor of culture and communication at New York University and author of Protocol: How Control Exists after Decentralization.

_Alexander R. Galloway____Protocol: How Control Exists after Decentralization (Leonardo Books)

[The MIT Press_2004]

Is the Internet a vast arena of unrestricted communication and freely exchanged information or a regulated, highly structured virtual bureaucracy? In Protocol, Alexander Galloway argues that the founding principle of the Net is control, not freedom, and that the controlling power lies in the technical protocols that make network connections (and disconnections) possible. He does this by treating the computer as a textual medium that is based on a technological language, code. Code, he argues, can be subject to the same kind of cultural and literary analysis as any natural language; computer languages have their own syntax, grammar, communities, and cultures. Instead of relying on established theoretical approaches, Galloway finds a new way to write about digital media, drawing on his backgrounds in computer programming and critical theory. “Discipline-hopping is a necessity when it comes to complicated socio-technical topics like protocol,” he writes in the preface.

Galloway begins by examining the types of protocols that exist, including TCP/IP, DNS, and HTML. He then looks at examples of resistance and subversion — hackers, viruses, cyberfeminism, Internet art — which he views as emblematic of the larger transformations now taking place within digital culture. Written for a nontechnical audience, Protocol serves as a necessary counterpoint to the wildly utopian visions of the Net that were so widespread in earlier days.

_Alexander R. Galloway/Eugene Thacker____The Exploit: A Theory of Networks

[Univ Of Minnesota Press_2007]

“The Exploit is that rare thing: a book with a clear grasp of how networks operate that also understands the political implications of this emerging form of power. It cuts through the nonsense about how ‘free’ and ‘democratic’ networks supposedly are, and it offers a rich analysis of how network protocols create a new kind of control. Essential reading for all theorists, artists, activists, techheads, and hackers of the Net.” —McKenzie Wark, author of A Hacker Manifesto

The network has become the core organizational structure for postmodern politics, culture, and life, replacing the modern era’s hierarchical systems. From peer-to-peer file sharing and massive multiplayer online games to contagion vectors of digital or biological viruses and global affiliations of terrorist organizations, the network form has become so invasive that nearly every aspect of contemporary society can be located within it.

Borrowing their title from the hacker term for a program that takes advantage of a flaw in a network system, Alexander R. Galloway and Eugene Thacker challenge the widespread assumption that networks are inherently egalitarian. Instead, they contend that there exist new modes of control entirely native to networks, modes that are at once highly centralized and dispersed, corporate and subversive.

In this provocative book-length essay, Galloway and Thacker argue that a whole new topology must be invented to resist and reshape the network form, one that is as asymmetrical in relationship to networks as the network is in relation to hierarchy.

Alexander R. Galloway is associate professor of culture and communications at New York University and the author of Gaming: Essays on Algorithmic Culture (Minnesota, 2006) and Protocol: How Control Exists after Decentralization.

Eugene Thacker is associate professor of new media at the Georgia Institute of Technology and the author of Biomedia (Minnesota, 2004) and The Global Genome: Biotechnology, Politics, and Culture.

_Joshua Gamson____Freaks Talk Back: Tabloid Talk Shows and Sexual Nonconformity

[University Of Chicago Press_1999]

In the recent past, lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, and transgendered people had almost no presence on television. With the invention and propagation of tabloid talk shows such as Jerry Springer, Jenny Jones, Oprah, and Geraldo, people outside the sexual mainstream now appear in living rooms across America almost every day of the week. Often these appearances are rambunctious, ugly, and exploitative, with the “action” of the show predicated upon homophobic responses from the audience. Most gay media watchers question the worth of appearing on such programs: at what price, they ask, visibility? This view is startlingly revised in Joshua Gamson’s Freaks Talk Back, an analysis of how tabloid TV may be the best–well, certainly the most engaging on a grassroots level–visibility that sex outsiders have ever garnered. Using surveys, news analysis, discussions of race and class differences, and readings from the shows themselves, Gamson argues that the endless yelling, bickering, and outright displays of homophobia–so different from the pre-packaged, insincere tolerance that passes for discourse in much of the media–give rise to discussions about people’s genuine feelings and beliefs. Questioning the very precepts of how we think about media coverage, Freaks Talk Back is as provocative and disturbing as tabloid television itself. –Michael Bronski

_Howard Gardner____Promijeniti mišljenje


Promijeniti nečije mišljenje o nečemu važnome može biti iznimno težak zadatak: pomislite na glasače, na potrošače, na učenike (i njihov odnos prema zadaćama)… No iako se radi o nečemu što toliko često spominjemo i pokušavamo napraviti, čini se da je riječ o prilično tajnovitom fenomenu. Kako ljudi zapravo dolaze do čvrstog mišljenja o nečemu i što se mora dogoditi da bi se ono promijenilo?

Svjetski poznati harvardski psiholog Howard Gardner, čiji su radovi o višestrukoj inteligenciji i kreativnosti revolucionirali način rada i mišljenja u obrazovnom sustavu, psihologiji i medicini, u ovoj nam knjizi otkriva nevjerojatne sličnosti u naizgled neusporedivim situacijama. Kako državnici mijenjaju orijentacije čitavih nacija, kako se transformiraju velike i male kompanije, kako pridobiti javnost za neku prijelomnu ideju – procesi se mijenjaju, no neki važni čimbenici su uvijek isti, bez obzira radi li se o poslu, politici, umjetnosti, znanosti ili naprosto svakodnevici.

Ova je knjiga nastala za seriju Leadership for Common Good (Rukovođenje za opću dobrobit), koju zajedno izdaju dva slavna harvardska fakulteta – Harvard Business School i John F. Kennedy School of Government. Biblioteka Facta s ponosom je predstavlja u prijevodu naše cijenjene psihologinje prof. dr. Mirjane Krizmanić i s naslovnom fotografijom Marine Leskova

_Rodolphe Gasche____The Honor of Thinking: Critique, Theory, Philosophy

[Stanford University Press_2006]

The Honor of Thinking investigates the limits of criticism, theory, and philosophy in light of what Martin Heidegger and French post-Heideggerian philosophers have established about the nature and tasks of thinking. In addition to in-depth analyses of Walter Benjamin’s conception of critique—and in particular the relation of critique to ethics, as well as alternative models of criticism (such as Heidegger’s notion of “Auseinandersetzung,” and Derridean deconstruction)—this book contains essays on the notion of theory from the Greeks and the early German Romantics to the contemporary use of this notion in literary studies. The last part of the book investigates the different ways of understanding philosophical thinking that are found in contemporary French thought, examining works of Foucault, Deleuze, Lyotard, and Derrida.

_Rishab Aiyer Ghosh____CODE : Collaborative Ownership and the Digital Economy

[The MIT Press_2005]

Open source software is considered by many to be a novelty and the open source movement a revolution. Yet the collaborative creation of knowledge has gone on for as long as humans have been able to communicate. CODE looks at the collaborative model of creativity — with examples ranging from collective ownership in indigenous societies to free software, academic science, and the human genome project — and finds it an alternative to proprietary frameworks for creativity based on strong intellectual property rights.

Intellectual property rights, argues Rishab Ghosh in his introduction, were ostensibly developed to increase creativity; but today, policy decisions that treat knowledge and art as if they were physical forms of property actually threaten to decrease creativity, limit public access to creativity, and discourage collaborative creativity. “Newton should have had to pay a license fee before being allowed even to see how tall the ‘shoulders of giants’ were, let alone to stand upon them,” he writes.

The contributors to CODE, from such diverse fields as economics, anthropology, law, and software development, examine collaborative creativity from a variety of perspectives, looking at new and old forms of creative collaboration and the mechanisms emerging to study them. Discussing the philosophically resonant issues of ownership, property, and the commons, they ask if the increasing application of the language of property rights to knowledge and creativity constitutes a second enclosure movement — or if the worldwide acclaim for free software signifies a renaissance of the commons. Two concluding chapters offer concrete possibilities for both alternatives, with one proposing the establishment of “positive intellectual rights” to information and another issuing a warning against the threats to networked knowledge posed by globalization.

_J. K. Gibson-Graham____A Postcapitalist Politics

[Univ Of Minnesota Press_2006]

Is there life after capitalism? In this creatively argued follow-up to their book The End of Capitalism (As We Knew It), J. K. Gibson-Graham offer already existing alternatives to a global capitalist order and outline strategies for building alternative economies.

A Postcapitalist Politics reveals a prolific landscape of economic diversity—one that is not exclusively or predominantly capitalist—and examines the challenges and successes of alternative economic interventions. Gibson-Graham bring together political economy, feminist poststructuralism, and economic activism to foreground the ethical decisions, as opposed to structural imperatives, that construct economic “development” pathways. Marshalling empirical evidence from local economic projects and action research in the United States, Australia, and Asia, they produce a distinctive political imaginary with three intersecting moments: a politics of language, of the subject, and of collective action. In the face of an almost universal sense of surrender to capitalist globalization, this book demonstrates that postcapitalist subjects, economies, and communities can be fostered. The authors describe a politics of possibility that can build different economies in place and over space. They urge us to confront the forces that stand in the way of economic experimentation and to explore different ways of moving from theory to action.

J. K. Gibson-Graham is the pen name of Katherine Gibson and Julie Graham, feminist economic geographers who work, respectively, at the Australian National University in Canberra and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.


_J.K. Gibson-Graham____The End Of Capitalism (As We Knew It): A Feminist Critique of Political Economy

[Univ Of Minnesota Press_2006]

In the mid-1990s, at the height of academic discussion about the inevitability of capitalist globalization, J. K. Gibson-Graham presented a groundbreaking and controversial argument for envisioning alternative economies. This new edition includes an introduction in which the authors address critical responses to The End of Capitalism and outline the economic research and activism they have been engaged in since the book was first published.

_James Gillies/Robert Cailliau____How the Web was Born: The Story of the World Wide Web

[Oxford University Press, USA_2000]

It’s hard to believe that there was a time–not long ago–when the digital fairyland of commerce, soapboxing, and pornography called the World Wide Web was just a file-sharing tool for nerds, but there’s a first time for everything. How the Web Was Born, by CERN’s James Gillies and Robert Cailliau, follows the trail from the dawn of ARPANet through the mid-90s, just as the Web boom was beginning to take off in earnest. That may seem like an odd ending point, but the post-1995 story has already been told ad nauseam, and the writers know how to quit while they’re ahead. The story is told from widely varying viewpoints and across shifting timelines as the various players are introduced and observed; this adds some complexity to the narrative, but yields a truer picture of the team efforts required to devise and launch the Web. Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Marc Andreesen, Tim Berners-Lee (of course), and many more, figure prominently in the interwoven tales, and are briefly summarized in an abridged cast list at the end of the book, along with a paper and electronic bibliography. The book assumes some knowledge and interest on the part of the reader and saves its big-picture context for the end, but provides reader motivation both by its subject’s inherent interest and the recurrent personalization of the story. Neither textbook nor CERN propaganda, How the Web Was Born offers an engagingly networked collection of characters that, like their invention, creates something larger than the sum of its parts. –Rob Lightner

_Paul Gilroy____Postcolonial Melancholia

[Columbia University Press_2006]

In an effort to deny the ongoing effect of colonialism and imperialism on contemporary political life, the death knell for a multicultural society has been sounded from all sides. That’s the provocative argument Paul Gilroy makes in this unorthodox defense of the multiculture. Gilroy’s searing analyses of race, politics, and culture have always remained attentive to the material conditions of black people and the ways in which blacks have defaced the “clean edifice of white supremacy.” In Postcolonial Melancholia, he continues the conversation he began in the landmark study of race and nation ‘There Ain’t No Black in the Union Jack’ by once again departing from conventional wisdom to examine — and defend — multiculturalism within the context of the post-9/11 “politics of security.”
This book adapts the concept of melancholia from its Freudian origins and applies it not to individual grief but to the social pathology of neoimperialist politics. The melancholic reactions that have obstructed the process of working through the legacy of colonialism are implicated not only in hostility and violence directed at blacks, immigrants, and aliens but in an inability to value the ordinary, unruly multiculture that has evolved organically and unnoticed in urban centers. Drawing on the seminal discussions of race begun by Frantz Fanon, W. E. B. DuBois, and George Orwell, Gilroy crafts a nuanced argument with far-reaching implications. Ultimately, Postcolonial Melancholia goes beyond the idea of mere tolerance to propose that it is possible to celebrate the multiculture and live with otherness without becoming anxious, fearful, or violent.

_Richard Goldstein____The Attack Queers: Liberal Society and the Gay Right


For most of its history, the American gay movement has been part of the democratic Left. Gay liberation’s founders were Communists, and its activist core is still overwhelmingly progressive. But in recent years, a more affluent group of gay men has begun to make its mark. Though they are a minority in the queer community (which includes people of all races, classes and genders), conservatives have become the loudest gay voices in the mainstream media. With their withering contempt for feminism and radical politics, these “gayocons” are changing the movement’s public image. Unless their rise is met by a persuasive critique, they may also alter its heart and soul. Attack Queers offers such a critique. It describes how the gay Right agenda differs from the one the queer community has long embraced. Never abandoning its analysis of the complex relationship between homosexuals and liberal society, the book examines the conflict between liberationists and assimilationists that has raged since the Stonewall era, and explores how political success tipped the balance and facilitated the rise of the gay Right. Finally this book offers an alternative to gay conservatism grounded in queer humanism, a distinct sensibility that has been a major force in progressive thought for more than a century.

_Philip Goodchild____Capitalism and Religion: The Price of Piety


Our global ecological crisis demands that we question the rationality of the culture that has caused it: Western modernity’s global free market capitalism. Goodchild develops arguments from Nietzsche, Adorno and Horkheimer to suggests that our love of Western modernity is an expression of a piety and that it has become a global religion in practice, if not always in belief. He condemns modernity, presenting a philosophical alternative that demands attention from philosophers, critical theorists, philosophers of religion, theologians and those in ecological politics.


_Jack Goody____The Theft of History

[Cambridge University Press_2007]

Professor Jack Goody builds on his own previous work to extend further his highly influential critique of what he sees as the pervasive eurocentric or occidentalist biases of so much western historical writing. Goody also examines the consequent ‘theft’ by the West of the achievements of other cultures in the invention of (notably) democracy, capitalism, individualism, and love. The Theft of History discusses a number of theorists in detail, including Marx, Weber and Norbert Elias, and engages with critical admiration western historians like Fernand Braudel, Moses Finlay and Perry Anderson. Major questions of method are raised, and Goody proposes a new comparative methodology for cross-cultural analysis, one that gives a much more sophisticated basis for assessing divergent historical outcomes, and replaces outmoded simple differences between East and West. The Theft of History will be read by an unusually wide audience of historians, anthropologists and social theorists.

_Peter Gordon____Rosenzweig and Heidegger: Between Judaism and German Philosophy

[University of California Press_2005]

Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929) is widely regarded today as one of the most original and intellectually challenging figures within the so-called renaissance of German-Jewish thought in the Weimar period. The architect of a unique kind of existential theology, and an important influence upon such philosophers as Walter Benjamin, Martin Buber, Leo Strauss, and Emmanuel Levinas, Rosenzweig is remembered chiefly as a “Jewish thinker,” often to the neglect of his broader philosophical concerns. Cutting across the artificial divide that the traumatic memory of National Socialism has drawn between German and Jewish philosophy, this book seeks to restore Rosenzweig’s thought to the German philosophical horizon in which it first took shape. It is the first English-language study to explore Rosenzweig’s enduring debt to Hegel’s political theory, neo-Kantianism, and life-philosophy; the book also provides a new, systematic reading of Rosenzweig’s major work, The Star of Redemption.
Most of all, the book sets out to explore a surprising but deep affinity between Rosenzweig’s thought and that of his contemporary, the German philosopher Martin Heidegger. Resisting both apologetics and condemnation, Gordon suggests that Heidegger’s engagement with Nazism should not obscure the profound and intellectually compelling bond in the once-shared tradition of modern German and Jewish thought. A remarkably lucid discussion of two notably difficult thinkers, this book represents an eloquent attempt to bridge the forced distinction between modern Jewish thought and the history of modern German philosophy–and to show that such a distinction cannot be sustained without doing violence to both.

_Stephen Jay Gould____Čovjek po mjeri : kvocijent inteligencije i druge zablude

[Naklada Jesenski i Turk_2003]

Čovjek po mjeri već je po prvom izdanju pozdravljen kao remek-djelo, odlučan odgovor svima koji žele klasificirati ljude i rangirati ih prema njihovim tobožnjim genskim prednostima i manama. No, ideja o zadanim ograničenjima – biologija kao sudbina – odumire teško i sporo, i danas je možda još prisutnija u znanstvenom i popularnom štivu. Ova povijest mjerenja intelektualne i moralne vrijednosti pojedinca čita se kao krimić, ali Čovjek po mjeri ima itekako jasan cilj: suprotstaviti se svakom pokušaju svođenja čovjeka na nasljednu i nepromjenjivu mjeru, i pritom raskrinkati licemjerje znanstvenika od kraniometričara devetnaestog stoljeća do suvremenih mjeritelja inteligencije koji nas uvjeravaju da su nam našli mjeru koja će nas i naše potomke pratiti do kraja života. “Rijetka knjiga – istodobno veoma važna i pravi užitak za čitanje… Gould donosi fascinantnu povijesnu studiju znanstvenog rasizma, kojeg prati … do hereditarne teorije kvocijenta inteligencije. Ilustrirajući i logičku nedosljednost teorija i razne zloupotrebe podataka, slučaj po slučaj, … ovo djelo je golem doprinos znanstvenoj literaturi.” – Saturday Review


_Oliver Grau____Virtual Art: From Illusion to Immersion (Leonardo Books)

[The MIT Press_2003]

Although many people view virtual reality as a totally new phenomenon, it has its foundations in an unrecognized history of immersive images. Indeed, the search for illusionary visual space can be traced back to antiquity. In this book, Oliver Grau shows how virtual art fits into the art history of illusion and immersion. He describes the metamorphosis of the concepts of art and the image and relates those concepts to interactive art, interface design, agents, telepresence, and image evolution. Grau retells art history as media history, helping us to understand the phenomenon of virtual reality beyond the hype.

Grau shows how each epoch used the technical means available to produce maximum illusion. He discusses frescoes such as those in the Villa dei Misteri in Pompeii and the gardens of the Villa Livia near Primaporta, Renaissance and Baroque illusion spaces, and panoramas, which were the most developed form of illusion achieved through traditional methods of painting and the mass image medium before film. Through a detailed analysis of perhaps the most important German panorama, Anton von Werner’s 1883 The Battle of Sedan, Grau shows how immersion produced emotional responses. He traces immersive cinema through Cinerama, Sensorama, Expanded Cinema, 3-D, Omnimax and IMAX, and the head mounted display with its military origins. He also examines those characteristics of virtual reality that distinguish it from earlier forms of illusionary art. His analysis draws on the work of contemporary artists and groups ART+COM, Maurice Benayoun, Charlotte Davies, Monika Fleischmann, Ken Goldberg, Agnes Hegedues, Eduardo Kac, Knowbotic Research, Laurent Mignonneau, Michael Naimark, Simon Penny, Daniela Plewe, Paul Sermon, Jeffrey Shaw, Karl Sims, Christa Sommerer, and Wolfgang Strauss. Grau offers not just a history of illusionary space but also a theoretical framework for analyzing its phenomenologies, functions, and strategies throughout history and into the future.

_Malcolm Le Grice____Experimental Cinema in the Digital Age (BFI Film Classics)

[British Film Institute_2002]

The clamor over new digital technologies has obscured the fact that filmmakers have experimented with computers for several decades. One of the most notable of these is Malcolm Le Grice, a pioneer of “structural film” in the 1970s whose first video and computer works were exhibited in the late 60s.
Le Grice, author in 1974 of Abstract Film and Beyond, has been writing about experimental cinema and digital art since the late 60s. His is one of the most sustained bodies of theoretical work in the area. This collection of his most notable essays sheds light on the work of other artists and filmmakers and documents a period, especially the 70s, when artists’ film was at the center of fierce and polemical debate about the nature of the avant-garde and the future of radical or experimental film.
Including a preface by Sean Cubitt, a new overview by the author, and introductory prefaces to each section, this book is a fascinating historical account of an artist’s thinking over three decades. It also makes a substantial contribution to vital contemporary debates about film, video, art and new technology.

_Evelyne Grossman____L’angoisse de penser



_Wendy M. Grossman____Net.Wars

[New York University Press_1997]

In net.wars, Wendy Grossman accomplishes two things: She dissects and explains today’s most controversial Internet issues and she thankfully explodes the myth that there were ever “good old days,” when the Net was just one big happy virtual family. Grossman turns a well-tuned reporter’s eye to the areas that generate the greatest amount of heat. She doesn’t pretend to be a dispassionate observer, making neither bones nor apologies about being an enthusiastic netizen herself. She does, however, carefully examine all sides of each issue and she presents issues clearly before expressing her own opinion.
Grossman presents many of the issues you would expect, such as sex on the Net, the proper limitations of information security, hackers as heroes and villains, online sexism, and the dispute on the right to privacy versus the need for law enforcement. However, she also addresses less dramatic but equally fascinating issues, such as the debate between those who view the Net as an all-inclusive level society and those who are intolerant of newcomers and their mistakes. And then there’s the world’s newest form of bigotry–siteism–in which practitioners discriminate against a poster because they dislike the access provider the poster uses.
Rather than simply looking at the philosophical and ethical issues involved, Grossman presents the history of the various controversies, explaining landmark developments and detailing how each issue evolved into the “Net war” we see today. One example is the issue of “copyright terrorists,” those who have applied old-technology definitions of intellectual rights in ways that others perceive as inhibiting free speech or as halting the fair use of knowledge. Here, the defining development in the controversy was a battle between the Church of Scientology and its opponents, where the worst casualties were, as in many real-life wars, those caught in between. Grossman traces the evolution of the battle step by step, presenting the views of key players on all sides and showing how laws intended for traditional media can have unexpected consequences when applied to the Internet. Entire volumes have been written about many of the issues discussed here, but this short book is enough to give readers an excellent grounding in all of them.


_Elizabeth Grosz____Time Travels : Feminism, Nature, Power

[Duke University Press_2005]

Recently, the distinguished feminist theorist Elizabeth Grosz has turned her critical acumen toward rethinking time and duration. Time Travels brings her trailblazing essays together to show how reconceptualizing temporality transforms and revitalizes key scholarly and political projects. In these essays, Grosz demonstrates how imagining different relations between the past, present, and future alters understandings of social and scientific projects ranging from theories of justice to evolutionary biology, and she explores the radical implications of the reordering of these projects for feminist, queer, and critical race theories.

Grosz’s reflections on how rethinking time might generate new understandings of nature, culture, subjectivity, and politics are wide-ranging. She moves from a compelling argument that Charles Darwin’s notion of biological and cultural evolution can potentially benefit feminist, queer, and antiracist agendas to an exploration of modern jurisprudence’s reliance on the notion that justice is only immanent in the future and thus is always beyond reach. She examines Henri Bergson’s philosophy of duration in light of the writings of Gilles Deleuze, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, and William James, and she discusses issues of sexual difference, identity, pleasure, and desire in relation to the thought of Friedrich Nietzsche, Michel Foucault, Deleuze, and Luce Irigaray. Together, these essays demonstrate the broad scope and applicability of Grosz’s thinking about time as an under-theorized but uniquely productive force.

_Boris Groys____Art Power

[MIT Press_2008]

Art has its own power in the world, and is as much a force in the power play of global politics today as it once was in the arena of cold war politics. Art, argues distinguished theoretician Boris Groys, is hardly a powerless commodity subject to the art market’s fiats of inclusion and exclusion. In Art Power, Groys examines modern and contemporary art according to its ideological function. Art, Groys writes, is produced and brought before the public in two ways–as a commodity and as a tool of political propaganda. In the contemporary art scene, very little attention is paid to the latter function; the official and unofficial art of the former Soviet Union and other former Socialist states, for example, is largely excluded from the field of institutionally recognized art, usually on moral grounds (although, Groys points out, criticism of the morality of the market never leads to calls for a similar exclusion of art produced under market conditions).

Arguing for the inclusion of politically motivated art in contemporary art discourse, Groys considers art produced under totalitarianism, Socialism, and post-Communism. He also considers today’s mainstream Western art–which he finds behaving more and more according to the norms of ideological propaganda: produced and exhibited for the masses at international exhibitions, biennials, and festivals. Contemporary art, Groys argues, demonstrates its power by appropriating the iconoclastic gestures directed against itself–by positioning itself simultaneously as an image and as a critique of the image. In Art Power, Groys examines this fundamental appropriation that produces the paradoxical object of the modern artwork.

_Marina Gržinić____Fiction Reconstructed. Eastern Europe, Post-Socialism & The Retro-Avantgarde

[edition selene_2000]

The point of departure is a difference between Eastern and Western Europe that I try to conceptualize philosophically, insisting on a difference – a critical difference within and not a special classification method marking the process of grounding differences. This book can be perceived as a radical theorization of a particular (Eastern European) position; here positioning means repoliticization. Fiction Reconstructed offers a very detailed inquiry into specific Post-Socialist art and media strategies.

_Joseph P. Guiltinan/Gordon W. Paul____Marketing Management: Strategies and Programs

[Mcgraw-Hill College_1993]

Unlike most marketing management texts that are overly descriptive and repetitious of prior coursework, this brief text focuses on the middle management marketing decisions students are most likely to encounter in their careers. The text emphasizes fundamental processes to help students develop the ability to apply marketing theories and concepts to decision-making situations. A talented new coauthor, Thomas Madden of the University of South Carolina, Columbia, has been added to the team. Discussions of such important areas as market segmentation, quality, customer service, brand equity, sales promotion, direct marketing, and database marketing have been substantially strengthened. The majority of minicases, which conclude each chapter are new and involve current, high-interest subjects.
