Emily Witt is single and in her thirties. She has slept with most of her male friends. Most of her male friends have slept with most of her female friends. Sexual promiscuity is the norm. But up until a few years ago, she still envisioned her sexual experience achieving a sense of finality, 'like a monorail gliding to a stop at Epcot Center'. Like many people, she imagined herself disembarking, finding herself face-to-face with another human being, 'and there we would remain in our permanent station in life: the future'. But, as we all know, things are more complicated than that. Love is rare and frequently unreciprocated. Sexual acquisitiveness is risky and can be hurtful. And generalizing about what women want or don't want or should want or should do seems to lead nowhere. Don't our temperaments, our hang-ups, and our histories define our lives as much as our gender? In Future Sex, Witt captures the experiences of going to bars alone, online dating, and hooking up with strangers. After moving to San Francisco, she decides to say yes to everything and to find her own path. From public health clinics to cafe conversations about 'coregasms', she observes the subcultures she encounters with awry sense of humour, capturing them in all their strangeness, ridiculousness, and beauty. The result is an open-minded, honest account of the contemporary pursuit of connection and pleasure, and an inspiring new model of female sexuality - open, forgiving, and unafraid.
Age, Gender and Sexuality through the Life Course argues that the gendered structure of temporality (defined in the dual sense of everyday time as well as age and stage of life) is a key factor underpinning the stalling of the gender revolution. Taking as its central focus the idealised young woman who serves as the mascot of contemporary success, this book demonstrates how the celebration of the Girl is (i) representative of social mobility, educational and professional achievement; (ii) possesses diligence, docility and emotional intelligence, and (iii) displays a reassuring sexuality and youthfulness – but is constructed from the outset to have a fleetingly short life span. Pickard undertakes a theoretical and empirical exploration of the contemporary female experience of education, work, motherhood, sexuality, the challenge of having-it-all. Furthermore, through additional analysis of the transitional ‘reproductive regime’ from youth into mid-life and beyond, this insightful monograph aims to demonstrate how age and time set very clear limits to what is possible and desirable for the female self; yet how the latter factors also, if used reflexively, can provide the key means of resisting and challenging patriarchy. This book is aimed at a broad interdisciplinary audience located in gender studies, age studies, culture studies, sociology and psychology; accessible for advanced undergraduates and beyond.
In these pages, the authors of the widely-acclaimed The Wellness Syndrome throw themselves headlong into the world of self-optimization, a burgeoning movement that seeks to transcend the limits placed on us by being merely human, whether the feebleness of our bodies or our mental incapacities. Cederström and Spicer, though willing guinea pigs in an extraordinary (and sometimes downright dangerous) range of techniques and technologies, had hitherto undertaken little by way of self-improvement. They had rarely seen the inside of a gym, let alone utilized apps that deliver electric shocks in pursuit of improved concentration. But, in the course of a year spent researching this book, they wore head-bands designed to optimize meditation, attempted to boost their memory through learning associative techniques (and failed to be admitted to MENSA), trained for weightlifting competitions, wrote what they (still) hope might become a bestselling Scandinavian detective story, enrolled in motivational seminars and tantra sex workshops, attended new-age retreats and man-camps, underwent plastic surgery, and experimented with vibrators and productivity drugs. André even addressed a London subway car whilst (nearly) naked in an attempt to boost attention. Somewhat surprisingly, the two young professors survived this year of rigorous research. Further, they have drawn deeply on it to produce a hilarious and eye-opening book. Written in the form of two parallel diaries, Desperately Seeking Self-Improvement provides a biting analysis of the narcissism and individual competitiveness that increasingly pervades a culture in which social solutions are receding and individual self-improvement is the only option left.
This book explores the technological transformation of the image and its implications for photography. Contributors investigate many issues, and also, they examine the cultural meanings of new surveillance images, history and biography, etc.

جنى جورج سوروس المليارات من خلال توقع التغيرات الزلزالية في الأسواق المالية، واستخدم هذه الأموال لمحاولة تغيير العالم. في هذا الكتاب، يجلب سوروس ذلك الالتزام إلى الموضوع الذي هجس في صدره منذ عام 2001: حالة الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية. لا يعاين سوروس النواقص المهلكة والشروخ العميقة والعيوب الخطيرة في الإدارة الحالية فقط ـــ وعداؤه لها موثق توثيقا جيداً ـــ بل في النظرة الأمريكية الأوسع للعالم. «رجل الدولة الذي لا ينتمي إلى أي دولة»، ولا تكبحه الحاجة إلى تخفيف وتلطيف حدة رسالته لتناسب السياسة الحزبية، يقدم أقوى وأعمق وصف كتبه حتى الآن، ليبين كيف فقد البلد الذي يجب أن يكون بمثابة المنارة الهادية للحكم الرشيد في العالم، وجهته وضل اتجاهه، فصدق الأمريكيون بلاغتهم الخطابية الطنانة وأساطيرهم الخرافية الموهومة، في تحد سافر للحقائق التي ستشكل مستقبلهم. يصر سوروس بإلحاح على وجوب أن «تغير أمريكا موقفها بشكل جوهري». فإذا أرادت نقطة انطلاق، كما يقول، فمن الأفضل البدء بالتخلي عما يكمن ضمنا في الحرب على الإرهاب من «مشاعر الرضى والقناعة والسعادة»، والتبرؤ مما يحايثها من سوء فهم، وتأويلات خاطئة، واعتقادات مغلوطة. يتصدى جورج سوروس، وقد بلغ الخامسة والسبعين، بوضوح لا لبس فيه وعزم لا يلين للموضوعات الرئيسة في عصرنا الحالي: التهديدات والأخطار التي تدهم حضارتنا، مثل انتشار الأسلحة النووية، والاحتباس الحراري، والإرهاب، ومكافحة الإرهاب، وتفكك أواصر التعاون الدولي. في عصر اللاعصمة يفعل سوروس ذلك بأسلوب بليغ فياض بالمشاعر والحماس. العبيكان للنشر
