AMIN, SAMIR
Ending the Crisis of Capitalism or Ending Capitalism?
Cape Town, Pambazuka Press. 2011, First Edition. (ISBN: 9781906387808). Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy. 199 pages. With his usual verve and sharpness Samir Amin examines the factors that brought about the 2008 financial collapse and explores the systemic crisis of capitalism after two decades of neoliberal globalisation. He lays bare the relationship between dominating oligopolies and the globalisation of the world economy. The current crisis, he argues, is a profound crisis of the capitalist system itself, bringing forward an era in which wars, and perhaps revolutions, will once again shake the world. D3.

BAKER, C. EDWIN
Human Liberty and Freedom of Speech
New York, Oxford University Press. 1992. (ISBN: 0195079027). Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from a small crease to one corner tip) with no inscriptions. viii + 385 pages. The author develops a liberty theory of freedom of speech, disputing the dominant 'marketplace of ideas' theory of the First Amendment that maintains that the truth will be discovered through debate free from government interference. Baker's theory denies constitutional protection to commercial speech, yet calls for increased protection for a free press, as well as protection for a considerable range of value-based expressive action. These protective activities, Professor Baker maintains, are crucial for a process of non-violent, progressive change. Presenting a timely and cogent argument deeply rooted in Supreme Court decisions and American political history. 13. Near Fine/No Jacket.

In this book Noam Chomsky explains how we came to this moment, what kind of peril we find ourselves in, and why our rulers are willing to jeopardize the future of our species.

CHOMSKY, NOAM
World Orders, Old and New - with a New Epilogue
London, Pluto Press. 1997. (ISBN: 0745313205). Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy. 343 pages. In this widely acclaimed study of global politics, Noam Chomsky offers a devastating critique of conventional definitions of the 'new world order'. It is, he argues, nothing more than an ingenious piece of 'historical engineering', wherby the pretexts for the Cold War - nuclear threat, Eastern Bloc menace - have been deftly replaced by a new set of convenient justifications for a Western agenda that remains largely unchanged. He draws together a wealth of historical detail in support of his argument, demonstrating with awesome clarity that the basic rules of world order remain as they always hve been. The book has been updated to include coverage of the latest developments in the Middle East peace process. 3. Fine/No Jacket.

GELBER, KATHARINE
Speaking Back - the Free Speech Versus Hate Speech Debate
Amsterdam, John Benjamins Publishing. 2002, First Edition. (ISBN: 9027226911). Hard Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A Fine unmarked copy in laminated boards free from inscriptions. As new. ix + 176 pages. Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture Series that investigate from a linguistic/discourse-analytic point of view. The book proposes an original policy framework for addressing hate speech. Gelber argues that a policy designed to provide support to affected groups and communities to enable them to speak back when hate speech occurs, is more useful way of addressing the harms of hate speech than punitive measures. She suggests that 'speaking back' allows the affected groups to contradict the messages contained in the words of the hate speakers, and to counteract the silencing, disempowering and marginalising effects of hate speech. Her argument uniquely synthesises the ideas of defending the importance of participating in speech, recognising the harms of hate speech and acknowledging that targeted groups may require assistance to respond.
