  • Passingby Maria C. Sanchez; Linda Schlossberg

    NYU Press 2001; US$ 89.00

    Passing for what you are not--whether it is mulattos passing as white, Jews passing as Christian, or drag queens passing as women--can be a method of protection or self-defense. But it can also be a uniquely pleasurable experience, one that trades on the erotics of secrecy and revelation. It is precisely passing's radical playfulness, the way it... more...

  • Risk Intelligenceby Dylan Evans

    Atlantic Books Ltd 2012; US$ 18.94

    There is a special kind of intelligence for dealing with risk and uncertainty. It doesn't correlate with IQ and most psychologists fail to spot it because it is found in such a disparate, rag-tag group of people such as weather-forecasters, professional gamblers and hedge-fund managers. This book shows just how important risk intelligence is.... more...
