For a New West: Essays, 1919-1958 by Karl Polanyi
Requirements: .ePUB, .MOBI/.AZW reader, 2.1MB
Overview: At a recent meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos, it was reported that a ghost was haunting the deliberations of the assembled global elite – that of the renowned social scientist and economic historian, Karl Polanyi.
In his classic work, The Great Transformation, Polanyi documented the impact of the rise of market society on western civilization and captured better than anyone else the destructive effects of the economic, political and social crisis of the 1930s. Today, in the throes of another Great Recession, Polanyi’s work has gained a new significance. To understand the profound challenges faced by our democracies today, we need to revisit history and revisit his work.
In this new collection of unpublished texts – lectures, draft essays and reports written between 1919 and 1958 – Polanyi examines the collapse of the liberal economic order and the demise of democracies in the inter-war years. He takes up again the fundamental question that preoccupied him throughout his work – the place of the economy in society – and aims to show how we might return to an economy anchored in society and its cultural, religious and political institutions.
For anyone concerned about the danger to democracy and social life posed by the unleashing of capital from regulatory control and the dominance of the neoliberal ideologies of market fundamentalism, this important new volume by one of the great thinkers of the twentieth century is a must-read.

Jihād in West Africa During the Age of Revolutions by Paul E. Lovejoy
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 23.5MB
Overview: In Jihād in West Africa during the Age of Revolutions, a preeminent historian of Africa argues that scholars of the Americas and the Atlantic world have not given Africa its due consideration as part of either the Atlantic world or the age of revolutions. The book examines the jihād movement in the context of the age of revolutions-commonly associated with the American and French revolutions and the erosion of European imperialist powers-and shows how West Africa, too, experienced a period of profound political change in the late eighteenth through the mid-nineteenth centuries. Paul E. Lovejoy argues that West Africa was a vital actor in the Atlantic world and has wrongly been excluded from analyses of the period.
Among its chief contributions, the book reconceptualizes slavery. Lovejoy shows that during the decades in question, slavery expanded extensively not only in the southern United States, Cuba, and Brazil but also in the jihād states of West Africa. In particular, this expansion occurred in the Muslim states of the Sokoto Caliphate, Fuuta Jalon, and Fuuta Toro. At the same time, he offers new information on the role antislavery activity in West Africa played in the Atlantic slave trade and the African diaspora.

When I’m forced into using magic to save an innocent family, the jig is up. Or so I believe. Instead, I’m whisked off to an academy of magic in a place I never knew existed.

At first, it’s all wands, witches, and a new wardrobe…until I get caught in a restricted area with a dead body. Now, it’s going to take more than magic to clear my name.
Thanks to new friends and a magically delicious vampire called Gray, I don’t have to fly solo anymore. I’m out of my depth and out of options. Can I catch a killer before it’s too late, or am I doomed to live a life on the run?
