The Secret History of Democracy


Intercultural Relations in a Global World
Lobo Marotta Oke Book CoverLobo, Michele., Marotta, Vince & Oke, Nicole (Eds.) (2011) 'Intercultural Relations in a Global World', Common Ground, USA.

The exploration of cross-cultural contact in a global and transnational world is essential for understanding how we can learn to live with difference in ways that go beyond tolerance. This book explores such contact in Euro-American/Australian societies as well as non-western multiethnic societies such as China, Malaysia, Indonesia and countries within Easter Europe. The contributors in this book expose the power relations underpinning such encounters as well as explore the possibilities for meaningful dialogue.


Migration, Citizenship and Intercultural Relations
Mansouri Lobo book coverMansouri, Fethi & Lobo, Michele (Eds.) (2011) 'Migration, Citizenship and Intercultural Relations', Ashgate, London.

Migration, Citizenship and Intercultural relations reflects on the tensions and contradictions that arise within debates on social inclusion, arguing that both the concept of social inclusion and policy surrounding it need to incorporate visions of citizenship that value ethnic diversity. Presenting the latest empirical research from Australia and engaging with contemporary global debates on questions of identity, citizenship, intercultural relations and social inclusion, this book unsettles fixed assumptions about who is included as a valued citizen and explores the possibilities for engendering inclusive visions of citizenship in local, national and transnational spaces.

Organised around themes of identity, citizenship and intercultural relations, this interdisciplinary collection sheds light on the role that ethnic diversity can play in fostering new visions of inclusively and citizenship in a globalised world.


The Secret History of Democracy
 Isakhan, Benjamin & Stockwell, Stephen (Eds) (2011) 'The Secret History of Democracy', Palgrave Macmillan, London.

Could democracy have a ‘secret’ history? Most of us are familiar with a history of democracy that emphasises the keystone moments in the story of Western civilization: the achievements of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the more recent development of the British parliament, the American Declaration of Independence and the French Revolution, and the gradual global spread of democracy since the end of the Cold War. The central argument of this book is that there is much more to the history of democracy than this foreshortened genealogy admits. There is a whole ‘secret’ history, too big, complex and insufficiently ‘Western’ in character to be included in the standard narrative.

 


Not Dark Yet: A Personal History
David Walker Not Dark Yet CoverWalker, David (2011) 'Not Dark Yet: A Personal History', Giramondo Publishing, NSW.

David Walker’s eyesight deteriorated suddenly at the end of 2004 as a result of macular degeneration. His blindness caused him to reconsider his own relation to the past, and the history of his family, which, like most families, left very few records. Not Dark Yet: a personal history (Giramondo, 2011) is the result. It traces family connections to the mid-north of South Australia (just south of the Goyder Line) from the late nineteenth century to middle class life in the city from the mid-twentieth century.

The book examines how the past is embodied in everyday experience, as much as in extreme events - it makes the small events and day-to-day foibles of ordinary people bear witness to the social forces which have defined the country. In her review of the book for the Sydney Morning Herald, the novelist and critic Kerryn Goldsworthy commented: ‘the book exerts the same powerful grip on the reader as the family chronicles and sagas of good 19th-century fiction and has the same kind of deep, complicated personal appeal.’


Democratizing health : consumer groups in the policy process

Democratizing HealthLofgren, Hans, de Leeuw, Evelyne and Leahy, Michael (2011) Democratizing health : consumer groups in the policy process, Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, England.

This book examines the important role of consumer activism in health policy in different national contexts. In an age of shifting boundaries between state and civil society, consumer groups are potentially drivers of democratisation in the health domain. The expert contributors explore how their activities bring new dynamics to relations between service providers, the medical profession, government agencies, and other policy actors. This book is unique in comprehensively analysing the opportunities and dilemmas of this type of activism, including ambiguous partnerships between consumer groups and stakeholders such as the pharmaceutical industry. These themes are explored within an internationally comparative framework, with case studies from various countries. Students and researchers in the fields of health policy and sociology, public policy and social movements will find this relevant and path-breaking book enlightening. It will also prove invaluable for participants and activists in patient and health consumer organisations.


Hope

hope covervan Hooft, Stan (2011) Hope, Acumen Publishing Ltd, Durham, England

From the now iconic Barack Obama "Hope" poster of the 2008 presidential campaign to the pit-head "Camp Hope" of the families of the trapped Chilean miners, the language of hope can be hugely powerful as it draws on resources that are uniquely human and universal. We are beings who hope. But what does that say about us? What is hope and what role does it play in our lives?
