Taking a unique multidisciplinary approach, Territory of Desire asks how, and why, Kashmir came to be so intensely desired within Indian, Pakistani, and Kashmiri nationalistic imaginations.

This is a much-needed new introduction to a field that has been transformed in recent years by exciting new subjects, ideas, and methods. It is designed both for students with central interests in philosophy and those planning to concentrate on the social sciences, and it presupposes no particular background in either domain. From the wide range of topics at the forefront of debate in philosophy of social science, the editors have chosen those which are representative of the most important and interesting contemporary work. A team of distinguished experts explore key aspects of the field such as social ontology (what are the things that social science studies?), objectivity, formal methods, measurement, and causal inference. Also included are chapters focused on notable subjects of social science research, such as well-being and climate change. Philosophy of Social Science provides a clear, accessible, and up-to-date guide to this fascinating field.

Land and Desire in Early Zionism

On earlier pages, I noted that the first of two simultaneous aspects of pioneer
desire is a kind of ecstatic-symbiosis. The second aspect is that which creates
boundaries. This impetus constituted the Land of Israel by delineating its territory.

More than any other major religion, ideology or philosophy, Christianity associates sex, and especially sexual desire, with sin and evil. People may be able to avoid earthly punishment for their sexual indiscretions, but they can not escape God s judgment; an afterlife of eternal pain and suffering in hell. Religious sanctions of this sort are supposed to be in opposition to man s sinful nature; restraining his dangerous sexuality. However, punishing others for sex is actually part of man s nature. In nature, sex is highly competitive. Dominant males fight and threaten as they try to control sexual access to fertile females. Human males behave similarly. Rather than being in opposition to human nature, religion actually reinforces man s animal instinct to control the sexual behavior of others. This explains why religion-inspired sexual restrictions and punishments are so popular among men. Of course, religion claims that it s really all about morality. Without strict religious control over sexual behavior human passions would lead to the destruction of society. God has given us His law in order to protect us from ourselves. Religion, it is often said, is what is good for society. But if this is so, why is it that those societies where religious belief is strongest and which have the harshest penalties for breaking the sexual code are also the societies that tend to be the least orderly and the most corrupt, brutal and violent? Religion is taken very seriously in many of the Islamic societies of the Middle East, and the strictest sexual code is adhered to. Yet, these societies are characterized not by prosperity and social order, but by poverty, violence and oppression. Meanwhile, the most sexually liberal societies, especially those of Western Europe, are the freest and the most democratic, prosperous and orderly. If strict sexual morality is not really good for society, why do religious conservatives everywhere continue to clamor for it? And why do people so willingly accept religion that tells them their sexuality is sinful and shameful? The truth is that most of the time people act on their own selfish feelings and desires, not on what is good for society as a whole. The desire to limit and control the sexual behavior of others is felt by women as well as men. Powerful feelings, such as sexual jealousy, inspire aggressive behavior. Strict anti-sex religious morality allows people to act aggressively on these feelings in a sociably acceptable way. Thus, it s not really about doing what is good for society, it s all about individual desires. This is best explained from an evolutionary perspective, which is exactly what this book does."

Society and Settlement

As for territory, the desire for sovereignty was satisfied over a major chunk of
British Palestine. This sovereignty could, theoretically, have solved the need to
acquire territory. Would Zionism see this means of territorial control as sufficient?

This book scrutinizes the interrelationships between Jewish spatial organization and social structure and change in Palestine/Israel. Kellerman analyzes the development of nationwide and regional settlements, and reasons for spatial and territorial choices, such as cooperative villages. He uncovers the extreme differences between the old and the new in Jewish settlement patterns, and discusses the implications for cultural development, economic functions, urban spirit, and international status in evolving Israeli society.

Lord Byron and the History of Desire uses Eric Gans's "generative anthropology" and Rene Girard's theory of imitative desire to interpret Byron's major literary works. It argues that the poet learned something about centrality, identity, and desire through the course of his career, and was able to write his knowledge in ways that might still be interesting to us. He learned that there were new things that it was possible, or necessary, to want, new strategies available for obtaining them, and with these, new risks, new losses, new problems. But what he provides in some of his poetry is not just historical insight. His best poetry is also, still, and perhaps most rewardingly, a demonstration or modeling of behaviors and attitudes that work well in a market world. The most valuable transfers in this world are effected through imitation, and through strengthening and inspiring alfiances. Byron provides both, modeling and alliance, in return--fundamental bargain--for our attention, the price of his poems. This book examines the transaction, inquires into its workings, and asks why the price seemed, and might still seem, worth paying.

Can your ultimate desire ever be fulfilled? Everywhere you look, every time you listen, with each click and tap, there's something you desire. How do you know if what you desire will satisfy, or if you are seeing a "desire mirage"? The global village presents countless ways to connect to all kinds of information. We think we can scarcely live without these connections. Do we realize, however, that these connections often block or slow down connections to God, self, and others? Divided Desire is a journey along the road of desire--a road everyone travels. Along the journey, Kenny Damara explores why we desire what we desire in the global village today. What role does God have in fulfilling the ultimate desire of the heart? And how should we respond?

"Engaging and accessible, No Man's Land is a fascinating book on extremely timely and important topicsùterrorism, insurgency, and cross-border crime."ùPeter Andreas, Brown University, author of Blue Helmets and Black Markets and coeditor of Sex, Drugs, and Body Counts "No Man's Land is a useful and original contribution to the literature on terrorism from the perspective of political geography. It provides a different perspective' from mainstream terrorism and strategic studies and gives a useful counter to the sometimes-bloated claims of the advocates of globalization. Just as realists in International Relations argue that globalization has not meant the end of the state, Justin V. Hastings makes a compelling argument that territory matters and that it is no passe, despite the emergence of the global interlinked economy."ùAndrew T.H. Tan, Convenor for International Studies, University of New South Wales The increased ability of clandestine groups to operate with little regard for borders or geography is often taken to be one of the dark consequences of a brave new globalized world. Yet even for terrorists and smugglers, the world is not flat; states exert formidable control over the technologies of globalization, and difficult terrain poses many of the same problems today as it has throughout human history. In No Man' Land, Justin V. Hastings examines the complex relationship that illicit groups have with modern technologyùand how and when geography still matters. Based on often difficult fieldwork in Southeast Asia, Hastings traces the logistics networks, command and control structures, and training programs of three distinct clandestine organizations: the terrorist group Jemaah Islamiyah, the insurgent Free Aceh Movement, and organized criminals in the form of smugglers and maritime pirates Hastings also compares the experiences of these groups to others outside Southeast Asia, including al-Qaeda, the Tamil Tigers, and the Somali pirates.

One of the most prominent economic philosophers of the 19th century, on a par with-but espousing quite different thinking than-Karl Marx and Adam Smith explores, in the three-volume National System of Political Economy, a reasoned doctrine of national and pan-national management of trade, a global collaboration between government and business. Volume 3 explores the economic and political systems that nurture ascendant nations in their global sovereignty. A close reading of this 1841 classic is an absolute necessity for anyone who hopes to understand world economic history of the last 150 years. German economist and journalist FRIEDRICH LIST (1789-1846) served as professor of administration and politics at the University of T bingen, but was later jailed and later exiled to America for his political views. His is also the author of Outlines of American Political Economy (1827).
