Unmade in China Unmade in China: The Hidden Truth about China's Economic Miracle
Jeremy R. Haft

"A systematic, mind-changing, and remarkable read which debunks the myths about China s economic supremacy and provides an optimistic rallying cry for US companies. Outstanding!"
Clinton O. Longenecker, Stranahan Distinguished Professor of Leadership and Organizational Excellence, University of Toledo

"Jeremy Haft's "Unmade in China" explains why the idea of Declining America vs Rising China is simplistic at best and downright deceptive at worst. He cuts through the emotional responses to China’s "rise" to detail why that country's unregulated manufacturing poses important risks and big opportunities for Americans. This is a must read for anyone who dares to look to the trees inside China’s expanding forest."
Ian Bremner – President of Eurasia Group

Who is Charlie?: Xenophobia and the New Middle Class Who is Charlie?: Xenophobia and the New Middle Class
Emmanuel Todd

"Who Is Charlie? stands out from all that has been written on the two massacres that took place in Paris in January 2015. It is an impressive analysis and a gripping read – I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. Emmanuel Todd's concern is not merely to trace the cause of these crimes but to reflect on them as a way of understanding the structural contradictions of contemporary France - a nation that continually invokes its Jacobin legacy (liberty, equality, fraternity) and yet allows that legacy to be undermined. This book is a brilliantly argued polemic and essential reading for understanding Islamophobia as a symptom of neo-Republican France in crisis."
Talal Asad, CUNY Graduate Center

The Wellness SyndromeThe Wellness Syndrome
Carl Cederström and Andre Spicer

"Carl Cederström and André Spicer's brilliantly sardonic anatomy of this wellness syndrome concentrates on the ways in which the pressure to be well operates as a moralising command and obliterates political engagement."
Steven Poole, The Guardian
"When I read their angry, hilarious book, The Wellness Syndrome, I felt like I was being shaken awake from a dream."
Helen Rumbleow, The Times
"A wonderful piece of work which exposes the wellness ideology for what it is: a stupid and dreadful fantasy of authentic self-mastery. As this timely and entertaining book shows, such fantasies must be nailed."
Simon Critchley, The New School for Social Research
