  • 10 Books that Screwed Up the Worldby Benjamin Wiker

    Regnery Publishing 2008; US$ 29.99

    You've heard of the "Great Books"? These are their evil opposites. From Machiavelli's The Prince to Karl Marx's The Communist Manifesto to Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, these "influential" books have led to war, genocide, totalitarian oppression, family breakdown, and disastrous social experiments. And yet these authors' bad ideas... more...

  • Against Empireby Zillah Eisenstein

    Zed Books 2004; US$ 34.95

    In Against Empire, Zillah Eisenstein extends her critique of neoliberal globalization and its capture of democratic possibilities. Faced with an aggressive American empire hostage to ideological extremism and violently promoting the narrowest of its interests around the globe, Eisenstein urgently looks to a global anti-war movement to counter U.S.... more...

  • The Art of Hostile Takeover Defenceby Jeannette Gorzala

    Diplomica Verlag 2010; US$ 38.30

    The market for corporate control had been the playfield of bust-up artists and speculators seeking short-time profits during the 1980s. This had also encouraged many innovations in the art of hostile takeover defence. Until today anti-takeover defence has reached a very sophisticated level and most companies have erected formidable defences to counter... more...

  • Asia in the Making of Europe, Volume IIby Donald F. Lach

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 30.00

    This is the second volume in a series that traces, century by century, the role of Asia in the making of Europe. The rise to world dominance of the Western nations in modern times and the rapid industrial growth of the West, which outpaced the East in technical and military achievements, have led to a historical eclipse of the ancient and brilliant... more...

  • A Call for Heresyby Anouar Majid

    University of Minnesota Press 2007; US$ 24.95

    A Call for Heresy discovers unexpected common ground in the deepening conflict between the Islamic world and the United States.
