    Columbia University Press 2014;

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    In Encountering Affect, Ben Anderson explores why understanding affect matters and offers one account of affective life that hones in the different ways in which affects are ordered.

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    Conflicting claims about culture are a familiar refrain of political life in the contemporary world. On one side, majorities seek to fashion the state in their own image, while on the other, cultural minorities press for greater recognition and accommodation. Theories of liberal democracy are at odds about the merits of these competing claims. Multicultural... more...

  • Fat Gay Menby Jason Whitesel

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    To be fat in a thin-obsessed gay culture can be difficult. Despite affectionate in-group monikers for big gay men-chubs, bears, cubs-the anti-fat stigma that persists in American culture at large still haunts these individuals who often exist at the margins of gay communities. In Fat Gay Men , Jason Whitesel delves into the world of Girth & Mirth,... more...
