              A Brief History of Fascist Lies

              In this short companion to his book From Fascism to Populism in History, world-renowned historian Federico Finchelstein explains why fascists regarded simple and often hateful lies as truth, and why so many of their followers believed the falsehoods. Throughout the history of the... twentieth century, many supporters of fascist ideologies regarded political lies as truth incarnated in their leader. From Hitler to Mussolini, fascist leaders capitalized on lies as the base of their power and popular sovereignty. This history continues in the present, when lies again seem to increasingly replace empirical truth. Now that actual news is presented as fake news and false news becomes government policy, A Brief History of Fascist Lies urges us to remember that the current talk of post-truth has a long political and intellectual lineage that we cannot ignore.

              Ultimate Price: The Value We Place on Life

              Ultimate Price: The Value We Place on Life (Hardback)

              What are you worth, and to what ends? Individuals, families, and systems place a price on human life every day with the decisions they make. These human price tags combine both economic and social values, the wallet and the heart; from insurance payouts to carceral sentencing, we... see discrepancies in the value of some human lives over others. The calculations that underlie these price tags and the dramatic ramifications they have on our lives are often buried in technical language. These price tags are sometimes unfair, yet they influence our economy, our laws and policies. In Ultimate Price, Howard Steven Friedman explains in simple terms how economists, corporations, regulators, and insurance companies make and use these price tags and illustrates how chauvinistic, white supremacist, or elitist values are reflected in them. He shows a multitude of ways people's lives are being valued, explains the methods involved, and then forcefully argues against the rampant unfairness in the system. Readers will be enlightened, shocked, and angered by the details of how these critical calculations work, as well as by the issues and implications hidden inside these impersonal equations that affect us all.

              After Silence: A History of AIDS through Its Images (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Early in the 1980s AIDS epidemic, six gay activists created one of the most iconic and lasting images that would come to symbolize a movement: a protest poster of a pink triangle with the words Silence = Death. The graphic and the slogan still resonate today, often used-and misus...ed-to brand the entire movement. Cofounder of the collective Silence = Death and member of the art collective Gran Fury, Avram Finkelstein tells the story of how his work and other protest artwork associated with the early years of the pandemic were created. In writing about art and AIDS activism, the formation of collectives, and the political process, Finkelstein reveals a different side of the traditional HIV/AIDS history, told twenty-five years later, and offers a creative toolbox for those who want to learn how to save lives through activism and making art.

              Industrial-Strength Denial: Eight Stories of Corporations Defending the Indefensible, from the Slave Trade to Climate Change

              Industrial-Strength Denial: Eight Stories of Corporations Defending the Indefensible, from the Slave Trade to Climate Change (Hardback)

              As an Assistant Attorney General, Barbara Freese would lead the cross examinations during litigation hearings when corporations were confronted with wrongdoing. Time and again, she was struck by the unwillingness of those on the stand to concede even the smallest points, especial...ly when confronted with relevant science and evidence. These seemingly rational, responsible people who, when presented with the facts, had no sense of guilt, shame, or just old-fashioned owning up. At first Freese chalked this up to greed-induced stonewalling, but then she came to believe that something else had been going on-at least in their heads-something that had much more to do with basic human psychology than law or science. By examining the stories of eight campaigns of denial pursued by different industries, Freese considers what it is about the corporations that make such denial so easy and so dangerous, and shows how those on the stand who are accused of harm quickly lock themselves into an extreme psychological defensive posture. For some it is because they rapidly default to an us against them mentality. For others, it is because they convince themselves that they are protecting what they have come to see as their most important work, a great contribution to society that cannot be tarnished. Still others come up with their on bizarre version of risk-benefit analysis and then cannot consider the possibility that the benefits to some may not outweigh the harm done to others. As compelling as a courtroom drama, Industrial-Strength Denial exposes the lies, delusions, and rationalizations that emerge when companies are clearly hurting others or our environment, and enables us to see how easy it is to fall into the same psychological trap.
