Some of the most controversial and consequential debates about the legacy of the ancients are raging not in universities but online, where alt-right men’s groups deploy ancient sources to justify misogyny and a return of antifeminist masculinity. Donna Zuckerberg dives deep to take a look at this unexpected reanimation of the Classical tradition.

The alt-right has been the most important new far-right grouping to appear in decades. Written by researchers from the anti-racist advocacy group HOPE not hate, this book provides a thorough, ground-breaking, and accessible overview of this dangerous new phenomenon. It explains where the alt-right came from, its history so far, what it believes, how it organises and operates, and its future trajectory. The alt-right is a genuinely transnational movement and this book is unique in offering a truly international perspective, outlining the influence of European ideas and movements as well as the alt-right's development in, and attitude towards, countries as diverse as Japan, India, and Russia. It examines the ideological tributaries that coagulated to form the alt-right, such as white supremacy, the neo-reactionary blogosphere, the European New Right, the anti-feminist manosphere, the libertarian movement, and digital hate culture exemplified by offensive memes and trolling. The authors explore the alt-right's views on gender, sexuality and masculinity, antisemitism and the Holocaust, race and IQ, globalisation and culture as well as its use of violence. The alt-right is a thoroughly modern far-right movement that uses cutting edge technology and this book reveals how they use cryptocurrencies, encryption, hacking, "meme warfare", social media, and the dark web. This will be essential reading for scholars and activists alike with an interest in race relations, fascism, extremism, and social movements.

How do you know what you feel? Why are some bad habits so hard to shake? Why do people do what they are told? Are we players or puppets? What is 'society'? These are some of the questions that new undergraduate student Mila begins to ask as she sets out on her journey to find out what sociology is and why it matters. This is a novel of ideas, a textbook in which we follow Mila and her friends as they grapple with sociological ideas and problems. It offers refreshingly clear explanations of the most important aspects of sociology and exposes students to social theory and how it relates to our everyday experiences. Through Mila's thoughts and actions, and the events in her social and family life, students are encouraged to engage critically and personally with sociological ideas, and in the process learn how to interpret, use and reshape them. Bringing the subject to life with humour, storytelling and doodles, this revised second edition of Dead White Men and Other Important People remains the ideal introduction to sociological thinking for students at all levels.

Until very recently the practice of philosophy was dominated by white, European men who are now (mostly) dead. Perhaps with the increasing participation of women in academia, and in society as a whole, philosophy is changing. Perhaps the way is now open for new interpretations, meanings, and dialogues in which women also speak. Where will such a speaking begin? Out of what tradition will they be able to speak? In this insightful and challenging approach to some of the great classics of Western philosophy, Inglis and Steinfeld play with a past that never occurred, a past that would have supported women in their search for meaning. Inglis and Steinfeld are after a different kind of hermeneutics, one that reads between the lines, a hermeneutics of subversion. This feminist hermeneutics begins with the recognition of sexism in the traditional canon and stresses the relevance of focusing on the glaring absence of women's perspectives from the long history of that canon. It locates the impact of women's missing voices in the most central metaphors that inform Western thought. And then it rethinks the canon around the thought that is absent. Here one may read about Plato's cave and the Eleusinian mysteries; what might happen if Anselm's proof for God encountered an argument for Goddess; a version of Kierkegaard's myth of Abraham in which he must respond to Sarah; a curious conversation between Nietzsche's Ubermensch and an old woman in a nursery rhyme; and a Heidegger who must confront the matricidal nature of his abyss. Inglis and Steinfeld's distorted readings create texts that did not occur, could not occur. At best this is a future located behind our past. At least, it should provide an interesting exploration of the limits of interpretation.

After his daughter was born prematurely in 2010, Burriesci set out to write a book for her 18th birthday. In short, honest, and simple letters, Burriesci teaches his daughter about 32 great books, from Plato to Karl Marx, and how their lessons have applied to his life. As someone who has spent a long and successful career advocating for great literature, Burriesci defends the titles in this series of tender and candid letters, rich in personal experience and full of humor. Dead White Guys is also a timely defense of the great books, arriving in the middle of a national debate about the fate of these books in high schools and universities around the country. Burriesci shows how the great books can enrich our lives as individuals, as citizens, and in our careers.
