For Raymond Geuss, philosophers- attempts to bypass
normal ways of thinking-to point out that the question
being asked is itself misguided-represents philosophy at
its best. By provoking people to think differently,
philosophers make clear that we are not fated to live
within the stifling systems of thought we inherit. We can
change the subject.

How can people thrive as their lives are disrupted and
transformed? Will jobs be created or destroyed? Will
digital divides narrow or widen in education and
healthcare? This book provides practical answers to these
questions. It focuses on the future of work, education,
and healthcare, because all of us experience these three
social and economic institutions every day, and at
seminal stages of our lives. Work, education, and
healthcare also build our capabilities and relationships,
so that we can live flourishing lives. The book takes the
view that it is up to us create a future that is better
than the one today. It explores practical possibilities
we could pursue, and how our collective capacity for
innovation and collaboration can tackle the disruptive
forces, and transform our lives for the better.

xviii,319p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9780262038188.
338.5 PAN 146627
This book helps readers master economic concepts and
techniques by tackling fundamental economic and political
questions through a series of models. It is organized
around a sequence of "big questions," among them: When do
markets help translate individuals- uncoordinated,
selfish actions into outcomes that are best for all? Do
markets change people, and, if so, for worse or better?
Translated into the language of modern economics, do
Marx-s ideas have merit? Readers will learn how to pose a
question rigorously and how to work toward an answer, and
to appreciate that even (especially!) the broadest and
most ambitious questions call for a model. The goal of
the book is not to indoctrinate but to show readers how
to reason toward their own conclusions.

The author summarizes two decades of research about the

conclusion is that globalization has created a small rise
in inequality. Other factors must be responsible for most

The Politics of fair trade : moving beyond free trade and

University Press, 2018.
xiii, 209p. , 24cm.
ISBN : 9780199337644.
382.3 EHR 146630
This book argues that fair trade is more than just labels
on specialty coffee products. Nor is fair trade just
protectionism in disguise. Rather, fair trade is
opposition to unrestricted trade based on sincere
concerns about environmental and labor conditions abroad.
The book introduces a multidimensional theory of trade
policy preferences, arguing that people can oppose trade
for different and unrelated reasons. It then
demonstrates, using public opinion data in the U.S. and
EU and Congressional voting data in the U.S., that fair
traders are sincere and not simply protectionists. The
book demonstrates why fair trade poses a threat to free
trade and argues that free traders should include
stronger and enforceable labor and environmental
standards in trade agreements in order to win the support
of fair traders.

This book sheds light on both the potential benefits and

medicine, as well as practices and industries in Europe

throughout using tools and technical knowledge derived

fields. The book seeks to provide guidelines and policy
proposals for policy-makers both in Europe and China, as
well as offer operational suggestions for companies
working in or with China, to enhance bilateral trade and
investment flows. It also presents medical evidence and
economic/legal analysis that will help boost the
integration of traditional Chinese medicine with Western
medicine through research studies.

Honey is now thought of mostly as a sweetener, but in its
long history around the world, it has been treated as a
food, tonic, medicine and preservative. It was also used
in religious rituals as a sacred food from the gods. And
its creators - bees - are vital to the pollination of
wild plants as well as many domesticated crops. Lucy M.
Long explores the fascinating history of honey, tracing
its use and meanings through numerous cultures and
demonstrating how this seemingly simple substance is
connected to politics, religion, economics, popular
