    Book Review: State Of Crisis by Zygmunt Bauman and Carlo Bordoni

Book Review: State Of Crisis by Zygmunt Bauman and Carlo Bordoni

Peter Lee highly recommends this contribution from Bauman and Bordoni, which will reward any serious student of politics who is willing to engage with its profound and nuanced arguments. The dialogue offers a breadth of engagement with subject matter that will provoke some as much as it encourages others.

This review was originally published on the LSE Review of Books.

    Book Review: Violence and Understanding in Gaza: The British Broadsheets’ Coverage of the War by Dávid Kaposi

Book Review: Violence and Understanding in Gaza: The British Broadsheets’ Coverage of the War by Dávid Kaposi

Instead of asking who is innocent and who should be blamed, the media should start to treat the Israel-Palestine conflict as a story of mutually painful but very real human relations, argues Dávid Kaposi in his new book. Catherine Hezser hopes that journalists will take up Kaposi’s suggestions and initiate a more complex, balanced, and historically-informed discourse on Israel and Hamas/Palestinians.

Book Review: Can Science Fix Climate Change? by Mike Hulme

As political solutions to climate change have so far had little impact, some climate change scientists are now advocating the so-called ‘Plan B’, a more direct way of reducing the rate of future warming by reflecting more sunlight back to space, creating a thermostat in the sky. In this book, Mike Hulme argues against this kind of hubristic techno-fix. Amelia […]

    Book Review: America and Britain: Was there ever a special relationship? by Guy Arnold

Book Review: America and Britain: Was there ever a special relationship? by Guy Arnold

Britain’s political and military elite has for decades nurtured the idea that enduring ties bind the interests of London and Washington, in good times and bad. Irrespective of the end of the Cold War, the 9/11 attacks and the economic rise of the East, these links are allegedly impregnable. But how accurate a picture is this? Arnold’s book is […]

    Book Review: Political Bubbles: Financial crises and the failure of American democracy by Nolan McCarty, Keith T. Poole and Howard Rosenthal

Book Review: Political Bubbles: Financial crises and the failure of American democracy by Nolan McCarty, Keith T. Poole and Howard Rosenthal

Political Bubbles is very enjoyable, insightful, and challenging, writes Declan Jordan. It addresses a remarkably under-analysed aspect of the financial crisis and the interface generally between politics and economics. Some of the political failures that came to the fore for the financial crises are just as likely to hinder political approaches to important problems, including poverty, inequality, and climate change.
