1Title:  The road from Mont Pelerin: the making of the neoliberal thought collective   
 Creator:  Mirowski, Philip, 1951- | Plehwe, Dieter. 
 Publication:  Harvard University Press, Cambridge, Mass, 2009. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "What exactly is neoliberalism, and where did it come from? This volume attempts to answer these questions by exploring neoliberalism's origins and growth as a political and economic movement. Although modern neoliberalism was born at the "Colloque Walter Lippmann" in 1938, it only came into its own with the founding of the Mont Pelerin Society, a partisan "thought collective," in Vevey, Switzerland, in 1947. The Road from Mont Pelerin presents the key debates and conflicts that occurred among neoliberal scholars and their political and corporate allies regarding trade unions, development economics, antitrust policies, and the influence of philanthropy. The book captures the depth and complexity of the neoliberal "thought collective" while examining the numerous ways that neoliberal discourse has come to shape the global economy." -- Book jacket.

2Title:  Neoliberal Chicago   
 Creator:  Bennett, Larry, 1950- | Garner, Roberta | Hague, Euan 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "The neoliberal philosophy of fiscal austerity aligned with reduced regulation has transformed Chicago. As pursued by mayor Rahm Emanuel and his predecessor Richard M. Daley, neoliberalism led officials to privatize everything from parking meters to schools, gut regulations and social services, and promote gentrification wherever possible. The essayists explore an essential question: how does neoliberalism work on the ground in today's Chicago? Contextual chapters explore race relations, physical development, and why Chicago embraced neoliberalism. Other contributors delve into aspects of the neoliberal vision, neoliberalism's impact on three iconic city spaces, and how events like the 2008 foreclosure crisis and the bid to attract the Olympic Games reveal the workings of neoliberalism."--Back cover.

12Title:  The Oxford handbook of dance and politics   
 Creator:  Kowal, Rebekah J. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. "In recent decades, dance has become a vehicle for querying assumptions about what it means to be embodied, in turn illuminating intersections among the political, the social, the aesthetical, and the phenomenological. The Oxford Handbook of Dance and Politics edited by internationally lauded scholars Rebekah Kowal, Gerald Siegmund, and the late Randy Martin presents a compendium of newly-commissioned chapters that address the interdisciplinary and global scope of dance theory - its political philosophy, social movements, and approaches to bodily difference such as disability, postcolonial, and critical race and queer studies. In six sections 30 of the most prestigious dance scholars in the US and Europe track the political economy of dance and analyze the political dimensions of choreography, of writing history, and of embodied phenomena in general. Employing years of intimate knowledge of dance and its cultural phenomenology, scholars urge readers to re-think dominant cultural codes, their usages, and the meaning they produce and theorize ways dance may help to re-signify and to re-negotiate established cultural practices and their inherent power relations. This handbook poses ever-present questions about dance politics-which aspects or effects of a dance can be considered political? What possibilities and understandings of politics are disclosed through dance? How does a particular dance articulate or undermine forces of authority? How might dance relate to emancipation or bondage of the body? Where and how can dance articulate social movements, represent or challenge political institutions, or offer insight into habits of labor and leisure? The handbook opens its critical terms in two directions. First, it offers an elaborated understanding of how dance achieves its politics. Second, it illustrates how notions of the political are themselves expanded when viewed from the perspective of dance, thus addressing both the relationship between the politics in dance and the politics of dance. Using the most sophisticated theoretical frameworks and engaging with the problematics that come from philosophy, social science, history, and the humanities, chapters explore the affinities, affiliations, concepts, and critiques that are inherent in the act of dance, and questions about matters political that dance makes legible"--The publisher.

16Title:  From precaution to profit: contemporary challenges to environmental protection in the Montreal Potocol   
 Creator:  Gareau, Brian J., 1973- 
 Notes:  "This book challenges the oft-cited belief that the Montreal Protocol remains an exemplary global environmental agreement. Through a sociological analysis of the political decision-making process and controversies generated at Montreal Protocol meetings, the book documents new ways global environmental governance is organized based on neoliberal ideals. The book shows how neoliberalism - as a dominant discourse and economic practice - has become increasingly embedded in the Montreal Protocol, and how global powers are able to act protectionist amid that discourse. The book demonstrates how recent controversies involve much more than just economic protectionism per se; it also involves the protection of the legitimacy of certain forms of scientific knowledge. It traces the rise of a new form of disagreement between global powers, members of the scientific community, civil society and agro-industry groups, signaling the negative impact of neoliberal policies on ozone politics and global environmental governance more broadly. The book reveals how global civil society groups involved in the Montreal Protocol are affected by the neoliberal discourse, which has left them relatively ineffective in their efforts to push for environmental protection"-- Includes bibliographical references and index.

17Title:  The therapeutic turn: how psychology altered Western culture   
 Creator:  Madsen, Ole Jacob, 1978- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages [173]-187) and index. "In what ways has psychology become more influential in Western society? In this book the author considers the notion of a 'therapeutic turn' in Western culture, the tendency for psychology to permeate ever new spheres within society. This book evaluates the increasing prevalence of psychology in several areas of Western society: Western consumer culture, contemporary Christianity, self-help, sport and politics. The author proposes that there are problematic aspects to this development which are seldom recognised due to a widely held assumption that 'the more psychology, the better for everyone'. A recurring concern with psychological solutions is that they often provide individual solutions to structural problems. As a result, psychologists may be inadvertently increasing the burden on the shoulders of the people they are meant to help and, at the same time, our capacity to understand individual suffering in the light of major historical and political changes in society is becoming increasingly clouded. This book presents a critique of the influence of psychology within Western society"--From publisher's website.

18Title:  The history of US-Japan relations: from Perry to the present   
 Alt. Title:  Nichi-Bei kankeishi. English   
 Creator:  Iokibe, Makoto, 1943- | Minohara, Toshihiro, 1971- 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (pages 325-335) and index. Examining the 160 year relationship between America and Japan, this cutting edge collection considers the evolution of the relationship of these two nations which straddle the Pacific, from the first encounters in the 19th century to major international shifts in a post 9/11 world. It examines the emergence of Japan in the wake of the 1905 Russo-Japanese War and the development of U.S. policies toward East Asia at the turn of the century. It goes on to study the impact of World War One in Asia, the Washington Treaty System, the issue of Immigration Issue and the deterioration of US-Japan relations in the 1930s as Japan invaded Manchuria. It also reflects on the Pacific War and the Occupation of Japan, and the country's postwar Resurgence, democratization and economic recovery, as well as the maturing and the challenges facing the US Japan relationship as it progresses into the 21st century. This is a key read for those interested in the history of this important relationship as well as for scholars of diplomatic history and international relations.

19Title:  Aboriginal peoples in Canadian cities: transformations and continuities   
 Creator:  Howard-Bobiwash, Heather, 1966- | Proulx, Craig, 1955- 
 Publication:  Wilfrid Laurier University Press, Waterloo, Ont, c2011. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references and index. Since the 1970's, Aboriginal people have been more likely to live in Canadian cities than on reserves or in rural areas. Aboriginal rural-tourban migration and the development of urban Aboriginal communities represent two of the most significant shifts in the histories and cultures of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. The essays in Aboriginal Peoples in Canadian Cities: Transformations and Continuities are from contributors directly engaged in urban Aboriginal communities; they draw on extensive ethnographic research on and by Aboriginal people and their own lived experiences. -- The interdisciplinary studies of urban Aboriginal community and identity collected in this volume offer narratives of unique experiences and aspects of urban Aboriginal life. They provide innovative perspectives on cultural transformation and continuity, and they demonstrate how comparative examinations of the diversity within and across urban Aboriginal experiences contribute to broader understandings of the relationship between Aboriginal peoples and the Canadian state as well as to theoretical debates about power dynamics in the production of community and in processes of identity formation. -- Heather A. Howard is an assistant professor in the Department of Anthropology at Michigan State University and is affiliated faculty with the Centre for Aboriginal Initiatives at the University of Toronto. She co-edited, with Rae Bridgman and Sally Cole, Feminist Fields: Ethnographic Insights (1999) and, with Susan Applegate Krouse, Keeping the Campfires Going: Native Women's Activism in Urban Areas (2009). -- Craig Proulx is an associate professor in anthropology at St. Thomas University in Fredericton, New Brunswick. In 2003 he published Reclaiming Aboriginal Justice, Community, and Identity, which discussed the Community Council Project, an Aboriginal-run diversion project in Toronto, Ontario. His current research is in the realm of media representations of Aboriginal peoples in Canada. --Book Jacket.

20Title:  Barrio dreams: Puerto Ricans, Latinos, and the neoliberal city   
 Creator:  Dávila, Arlene M., 1965- 
 Publication:  University of California Press, Berkeley, c2004. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (p. 235-249) and index. "Arlene Dávila brilliantly considers the cultural politics of urban space in this lively exploration of Puerto Rican and Latino experience in New York, the global center of culture and consumption, where Latinos are now the biggest minority group. Analyzing the simultaneous gentrification and Latinization of what is known as El Barrio or Spanish Harlem, Barrio Dreams makes a compelling case that - despite neoliberalism's race-and ethnicity-free tenets - dreams of economic empowerment are never devoid of distinct racial and ethnic considerations. Dávila scrutinizes dramatic shifts in housing, the growth of charter schools, and the enactment of Empowerment Zone legislation that promises upward mobility and empowerment while shutting out many longtime residents. Foregrounding privatization and consumption, she offers an innovative look at the marketing of Latino space. She emphasizes class among Latinos while touching on black-Latino and Mexican-Puerto Rican relations. Providing a unique multifaceted view of the place of Latinos in the changing urban landscape, Barrio Dreams is one of the most nuanced and original examinations of the complex social and economic forces shaping our cities today."--Publisher's description.
