Does Peacekeeping Work from the Author: Virginia Page Fortna. "Fortna demonstrates that peacekeeping is an extremely effective policy tool, dramatically reducing the risk that war will resume. Moreover, she explains that relatively small and militarily weak consent-based peacekeeping operations are often just as effective as larger, more robust enforcement missions. Fortna examines the causal mechanisms of peacekeeping, paying particular attention to the perspective of the peacekept--the belligerents themselves--on whose decisions the stability of peace depends."--publisher website.

The Bad Cripple from the Author: William Peace. Cultural Writing. Political Science. Eighteen percent of Americans -- that's nearly fifty-four million people -- say they have some form of disability, yet this "minority" is not visible on Main Street USA. William J. Peace -- author, activist, professor, and the bad cripple in question here -- contends that, although legislation exists, the segregation that occurs is due to the denial of these people's basic civil and human rights. Issues of accessibility could easily be solved with existing technology, and therefore should not continue to be a problem. The barrier that remains to a more equal existence is bigotry, a learned behavior that Peace, along with a growing movement for disability rights, aims to change.

Media Worlds from the Author: Faye D. Ginsburg. This groundbreaking volume showcases the exciting work emerging from the ethnography of media, a burgeoning new area in anthropology that expands both social theory and ethnographic fieldwork to examine the way media—film, television, video—are used in societies around the globe, often in places that have been off the map of conventional media studies. The contributors, key figures in this new field, cover topics ranging from indigenous media projects around the world to the unexpected effects of state control of media to the local impact of film and television as they travel transnationally. Their essays, mostly new work produced for this volume, bring provocative new theoretical perspectives grounded in cross-cultural ethnographic realities to the study of media.

Image Operations from the Author: Jens Eder. Still and moving images are crucial factors in contemporary political conflicts. They not only have representational, expressive or illustrative functions, but also augment and create significant events. Beyond altering states of mind, they affect bodies and often life or death is at stake. Various forms of image operations are currently performed in the contexts of war, insurgency and activism. Photographs, videos, interactive simulations and other kinds of images steer drones to their targets, train soldiers, terrorise the public, celebrate protest icons, uncover injustices, or call for help. They are often parts of complex agential networks and move across different media and cultural environments. This book is a pioneering interdisciplinary study of the role and function of images in political life. Balancing theoretical reflections with in-depth case studies, it brings together renowned scholars and activists from different fields to offer a multifaceted critical perspective on a crucial aspect of contemporary visual culture.
