            Uncle Tom's Cabin (EPUB ebook)

            By Stowe, Harriet Beecher

            Uncle Tom's Cabin brought the evils of slavery to the consciences and hearts of the American people by its moving portrayal of slave experience.Part of the Macmillan Collector's Library; a series of stunning, clothbound, pocket sized classics with gold foiled edges and ribbon mar...kers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition has an afterword by Pat Righelato.Harriet Beecher Stowe shows us in scenes of great dramatic power the human effects of a system in which slaves were property: the break up of families, the struggles for freedom, and the horrors of plantation labour. She brings into fiction the different voices of the emerging American nation; the Southern slave-owning classes, Northern abolitionists, the sorrow songs and dialect of slaves, as well as the language of political debate and religious zeal. The novel was, and is, controversial and abrasive in its demand for change.

            During the Brexit referendum campaign it became clear how easily national conversations around politics could become raucous and bitter. This book explores the nature of talking about politically contentious issues and how our society can begin to develop a more constructive cult...ure of political talk. Uniquely, this study focuses on citizens own experiences and reflections on developing, practising and evaluating their own political voices. Based on seventy in-depth interviews with a diverse range of people, Stephen Coleman explores the intricate nature of interpersonal political talk and what this means for public attitudes towards politics and how people negotiate their political identities. Engaging with a broad range of subjects from Political Communication to Sociology this book offers valuable insight into how the public can discuss politically turbulent topics in a meaningful and constructive way.

            The book provides new vistas on Karl Marx's political economy, philosophy and politics on the occasion of his 200th birthday. Often using hitherto unknown material from the recently published Marx-Engels Gesamtausgabe (the MEGA2 edition), the contributions throw new light on Marx...'s works and activities, the sources he used and the discussions he had, and they correct received opinions on his doctrines. The themes dealt with include Marx's concepts of alienation and commodity fetishism, the labour theory of value and the theory of exploitation, Marx's studies of capital accumulation and economic growth, his analysis of economic crises and of the labour contract. Novel developments in the reception of his works in France and the United Kingdom conclude the volume. This book was originally published as a special issue of the European Journal of the History of Economic Thought.

            Race, Islam and Power: Ethnic and Religious Violence in Post-Suharto Indonesia
             

            Race, Islam and Power: Ethnic and Religious Violence in Post-Suharto Indonesia (PDF ebook)

            By Andreas, Harsono

            Jakarta based Andreas Harsono is one of the most knowledgeable, experienced, high-profile and courageous of reporters and commentators on contemporary Indonesian society. Race, Islam and Power: Ethnic and Religious Violence in Post-Suharto Indonesia is the result of Harsono's fif...teen year project to document how, in post-Suharto Indonesia, race and religion have come to be increasingly prevalent within the nation's politics. From its westernmost island of Sabang to its easternmost city of Merauke in West Papua, from Miangas Island in the north, near the Philippines border, to Ndana Island, close to the coast of Australia, Harsono reveals the particular cultural identities and localised political dynamics of this internally complex and riven nation. This informed personal travelogue is essential reading for Indonesia watchers and anyone seeking a better understanding of contemporary Indonesia. A passionate seeker of human rights protections, civil liberties, democracy, media freedom, multiculturalism and environmental protection, Harsono reminds us that Indonesians 'still have not found the light at the end of the tunnel'.

            Talking North: The Journey of Australia's First Asian Language (PDF ebook)

            By Paul, S. Thomas

            What makes one nation curious about another nation? Curious enough that the study of the other's culture and language becomes a natural commitment or something that could be described as a national project? This question lies behind much of the writing in this book as it explores... the history, education policy and changing fortunes of the Indonesian/Malay language in Australia. While formal education programs are central to this discussion, individual effort and chance encounters with the language are also examined in the context of Australia's evolving historical ties with its near neighbours. These relationships have grown in importance since the end of the Second World War, but Australians typically continue to view the region as 'testing'. This is exemplified by the Australian-Indonesian relationship, the primary focus of this volume. While much has been written on the political relationship, this book builds its view of the two countries' interactions on the cultural activity of language learning. This is, perhaps, the most fundamental of cultural activities in any effort to promote mutual understanding.

            Letters to Australia: Essays from 1954-1955, Volume 5 (PDF ebook)

            By Julius, Stone

            Queen Elizabeth's visit showed a strong remaining affection for the crown, despite the nation's shift of its power alliances to the USA. In the USA, McCarthyism crashed with the discrediting of its leading figure; in Argentina the autocratic populist movement of Peron came to an ...end; West Germany continued its spectacular economic growth; and Yugoslavia made a bid for neutrality, weakening the Soviet Union's grip on the Balkan states.
