The Enemy - Gopal Balakrishnan
Balakrishnan's thoughtful and thorough intellectual biography grounds Carl Schmitt's ideas both in his personal experiences and in the political developments to which he was responding. While sharply critical of many of Schmitt's ideas and interpretations, Balakrishnan takes them seriously and contends with them on a high intellectual level.

Antagonistics is offered as a 'chronicle of the second decade of the post-Cold War status quo'. As such, it demarcates its concern as being with the theme of 'neutralisation', which draws on the thought of Schmitt to identify the period as one in which the political field is 'devoid of a primary, structuring antagonism'.

The Minsk Ghetto 1941-1943: Jewish Resistance and Soviet Internationalism
Drawing from engrossing survivors' accounts, many never before published, The Minsk Ghetto 1941-1943 recounts a heroic yet little-known chapter in Holocaust history. In vivid and moving detail, Barbara Epstein chronicles the history of a Communist-led resistance movement inside the Minsk ghetto, which, through its links to its Belarussian counterpart outside the ghetto and with help from others, enabled thousands of ghetto Jews to flee to the surrounding forests where they joined partisan units fighting the Germans.

Poetry. Afro-Caribbean Studies. "D.S. Marriott 'dares to dream' in this book...by refolding beautiful romantic lines...into new relation with the real that haunts him, which he attends through mourning and recasts in an art full of loss.


In Haunted Life, David Marriott examines the complex interplay between racial fears and anxieties and the political-visual cultures of suspicion and state terror. He compels readers to consider how media technologies are "haunted" by the phantom of racial slavery.
