  • Political Silence

    Meanings, Functions and Ambiguity, 1st Edition

    Edited by Sophia Dingli, Thomas N. Cooke

    The notion of ‘silence’ in Politics and International Relations has come to imply the absence of voice in political life and, as such, tends to be scholastically prescribed as the antithesis of political power and political agency.

  • Revolution and History in Walter Benjamin

    A Conceptual Analysis, 1st Edition

    By Alison Ross

    This book places Benjamin’s writing on revolution in the context of his conception of historical knowledge.

    Ethics, Moralities and Mobilities, 1st Edition

    Edited by Anssi Paasi, Eeva-Kaisa Prokkola, Jarkko Saarinen, Kaj Zimmerbauer
