Allison Fine Momentum. Igniting Social Change in the Connected Age

Allison Fine Momentum. Igniting Social Change in the Connected Age

A new and empowering way of looking at and organizing social change! How can we move from serving soup until our elbows ache to solving chronic social ills like hunger or homelessness? How can we break the disastrous cycle of low expectations that leads to chronic social failures? The answers to these questions lie within Momentum, a fresh, zestful way of thinking about and organizing social change work. Today's digital tools—including but not limited to e-mail, the Web, cell phones, personal digital assistants (PDAs), even iPods—promote interactivity and connectedness. But as Momentum shows, these new social media tools are important not for their wizardry but because they connect us to one another in inexpensive, accessible, and massively scalable ways.

From Bronze Age to Iron Age in the Aegean: A Heterarchical Approach

From Bronze Age to Iron Age in the Aegean: A Heterarchical Approach

The end of the 13th C. BC is marked as the collapse of the Aegean Bronze Age and is often painted as the start of the Dark Ages. The purpose of this work is to employ heterarchy, a flexible analytical tool and social model that helps avoid such rhetoric. Data from various archaeological contexts in the Aegean from the Late Bronze Age to the Early Iron Age is collected and examined against the heterarchical model in order to evaluate its applicability. Accordingly, a new model of this transitional period is suggested in the Mediterranean, challenging the way social change is seen in this region.

Governing the Climate

Governing the Climate

Despite a growing interest in critical social and political studies of climate change, the field remains fragmented and diffuse. This is the first volume to collect this body of scholarship, providing a key reference point in the growing debate about climate change across the social sciences. The book provides a new set of insights into the ways in which climate change is creating new forms of social order, and the ways in which they are structured through the workings of rationality, power and politics. Governing the Climate is invaluable for three main audiences: social science researchers and advanced students in the field of climate change; the wider research community interested in global environmental politics and global environmental governance; and policy makers and researchers concerned more broadly with environmental politics at international, national and local levels.
