Communication: A Critical/Cultural Introduction, Second

Using contemporary critical theory, authors John T.
Warren and Deanna L. Fassett focus on communication as
advocacy - inherently influenced by culture, history and
power. By situating communication concepts and theories
within contemporary and engaging cultural scenes, the
book is much more than a survey of ideas - it

305.42 JEF 143945
The new edition of Beauty and Misogyny revisits and
updates Sheila Jeffreys- uncompromising critique of
Western beauty practice and the industries and ideologies
behind it. Jeffreys argues that beauty practices are not
related to individual female choice or creative
expression, but represent instead an important aspect of
women-s oppression. As these practices have become
increasingly brutal and pervasive, the need to scrutinize
and dismantle them is if anything more urgent now than it
was in 2005 when the first edition of the book was
published. The United Nations concept of -harmful
traditional/cultural practices- provides a useful lens
for the author to advance her critique. She makes the
case for including Western beauty practices within this
definition, examining their role in damaging women-s
health, creating sexual difference and enforcing female

Lawson.-- London: Routledge, 2015.

330 LAW 143937
In this collection, Tony Lawson identifies the causes of
the discipline’s failings and outlines a transformative
solution to its deficiencies. Amongst other things,
Lawson advocates for the adoption of a more historical
and philosophical orientation to the study of economics,
one that deemphasizes the current focus on mathematical
modelling while maintaining a high level of analytical
rigour. In so doing Lawson argues for a return to long
term systematic and sustained projects, in the manner
pursued by the likes of Marx, Veblen, Hayek and Keynes,
concerned first and foremost with advancing our
understanding of social reality. Overall, this forceful
and persuasive collection represents a major intervention
in the on-going debates about the nature, state and
future direction of economics.
