  • The Shape of the World to Comeby Laurent Cohen-Tanugi; George Holoch

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 24.99

    Contrary to an optimistic vision of a world "flattened" by the virtues of globalization, the sustainability and positive outcomes of economic and political homogenization are far from guaranteed. For better and for worse, globalization has become the most powerful force shaping the world's geopolitical landscape, whether it has meant integration or... more...

  • Secularism Confronts Islamby Olivier Roy; George Holoch

    Columbia University Press 2007; US$ 21.99

    The denunciation of Islamic fundamentalism has slowly evolved into an attack on all Muslims and Islam. This hostility is rooted in the belief that Islam cannot be integrated into secular and liberal society. However, as Olivier Roy makes clear, Muslim intellectuals have made it possible for Muslims to live concretely in a secularized world while... more...

  • China's Uncertain Futureby Jean-Luc Domenach; George Holoch

    Based on his experience as a scholar and diplomat stationed in China, Jean-Luc Domenach consults a wealth of archival and recent materials to examine China?s contemporary and future place in the world.

  • Savage Centuryby Therese Delpech; George Holoch

    Carnegie Endowment for International Peace 2013; US$ 15.99

    At the dawn of the twentieth century, observers heralded a new era of social progress, seemingly limitless technological advances, and world peace. But within only a few years, the world was perched on the brink of war, revolution, and human misery on an unprecedented scale. Is it possible that today, in the early twenty-first century, we are on the... more...

  • The Color of Powerby Frédérick Douzet; George Holoch

    University of Virginia Press 2012; US$ 49.50

    The Color of Power is a fascinating examination of the changing politics of race in Oakland, California. Oakland has been at the forefront of California?s multicultural changes for decades. Since the 1960s, the city has been a shining example of a fruitful liberal black-and-white political partnership and the successful incorporation of black... more...

  • How PowerPoint Makes You Stupidby Franck Frommer; George Holoch

    New Press, The 2012; US$ 27.95

    With over 500 million users worldwide, Microsoft?s PowerPoint software has become the ubiquitous tool for nearly all forms of public presentation—in schools, government agencies, the military, and, of course, offices everywhere. In this revealing and powerfully argued book, author Franck Frommer shows us that PowerPoint?s celebrated ease and efficiency... more...

  • Religion in Americaby Denis Lacorne; Tony Judt; George Holoch

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 34.99

    America is unique in that its political institutions preceded the development of a national identity. The American Revolution and drafting of the constitution did not deepen a preexisting national self. Rather, it created a new political framework to which the "walls" of culture, particularly references to a distant past, were later added. Revisiting... more...

  • A Convergence of Civilizationsby Youssef Courbage; Emmanuel Todd; George Holoch

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 39.99

    We are told that Western/Christian and Muslim/Arab civilizations are on the verge of destroying each other. The demographics of one group remain sluggish, while the population of the other has exploded, widening the cultural gap and all but guaranteeing the outbreak of war. Leaving aside the media's sound and fury on this subject, measured analysis... more...
