More books to read

Another catalogue landed at Enlightenment Towers – Polity Press for July to December. A few I like the look of (it is of course a lefty list). by Frederic Barbier. It promises parallels with the digital revolution. by Nick Srnicek – the blurb makes the conclusion clear: these are just big, bad monopolies. And the author is billed as a ‘rising star of critical theory’, possibly my least favourite subject discipline, not least because it’s so hard for me to understand. But it might be worth a read. I like the look of by Adam Sneyd – “the grubby politics of the fluffy white stuff.” Sounds like he’ll agree with the rather tendentious arguments in Sven Beckert’s , but I have a limitless appetite for the fluffy white stuff as the daughter of cotton mill workers. There’s also Oliver Stuenkel’s . I can buy the line that we take too western-centric a vew of the world. Finally, by Michel Agier, an anthropologist – arguing that more of us are living in the ‘cosmopolitan condition’ in which the experience of the unfamiliar is becoming familiar.
