The Allure of Machinic Life: Cybernetics, Artificial Life, and the New AI by John Johnston
A Bradford Book | August 08 2008 | ISBN: 0262101262 | Pages: 480 | PDF | 4.4 MB

In The Allure of Machinic Life, John Johnston examines new forms of nascent life that emerge through technical interactions within human-constructed environments–"machinic life"–in the sciences of cybernetics, artificial life, and artificial intelligence. With the development of such research initiatives as the evolution of digital organisms, computer immune systems, artificial protocells, evolutionary robotics, and swarm systems, Johnston argues, machinic life has achieved a complexity and autonomy worthy of study in its own right.

A War Too Far : Iraq, Iran and the New American Century by Paul Rogers
English | Feb. 14, 2006 | ISBN: 0745324320 | 319 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

There are few today who can claim that the US occupation of Iraq has been a success, for Iraq or the US. A War Too Far takes this on by looking back on the many unanswered questions about the invasion itself. What was the real reason for the Iraq War? Did George Bush ever have a strategy to confront al-Qaida in one arena? How does the invasion alter Iraq's relationship with Iran? And what does this mean for the future?

Erotic Justice: Law and the New Politics of Postcolonialism

Erotic Justice: Law and the New Politics of Postcolonialism by Ratna Kapur
English | Feb. 5, 2005 | ISBN: 1904385249 | 228 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

The essays in Erotic Justice address the ways in which law has been implicated in contemporary debates dealing with sexuality, culture and `different' subjects - including women, sexual minorities, Muslims and the transnational migrant. Law is analyzed as a discursive terrain, where these different subjects are excluded or included in the postcolonial present on terms that are reminiscent of the colonial encounter and its treatment of difference.
