In the tradition of Octavia Butler, here is radical self-help, society-help, and planet-help to shape the futures we want. Change is constant. The world, our bodies, and our minds are in a constant state of flux. They are a stream of ever-mutating, emergent patterns. Rather than steel ourselves against such change,Emergent Strategy teaches us to map and assess the swirling structures and to read them as they happen, all the better to shape that which ultimately shapes us, personally and politically. A resolutely materialist spirituality based equally on science and science fiction: a wild feminist and afro-futurist ride! adrienne maree brown, co-editor ofOctavia's Brood: Science Fiction from Social Justice Movements, is a social justice facilitator, healer, and doula living in Detroit.

This title is part of American Studies Now and available as an e-book first. Visit ucpress.edu/go/americanstudiesnow to learn more. From the 1960s to the present, activists, artists, and science fiction writers have imagined the consequences of climate change and its impacts on our future. Authors such as Octavia Butler and Leslie Marmon Silko, movie directors such as Bong Joon-Ho, and creators of digital media such as the makers of the Maori web series Anamata Future News have all envisioned future worlds in the wake of imminent environmental collapse, engaging audiences to think about the earth’s sustainability. As public awareness of climate change has grown, so has the popularity of imaginative works of climate fiction that connect science with activism. Today real-world social movements helmed by Indigenous people and people of color are leading the way against the greatest threat to our environment: the fossil fuel industry. It is through these stories and movements by Natives and people of color—both in the real world and imagined through science fiction—that we understand the relationship between culture and activism and how both can be a valuable tool in creating our future. Imagining the Future of Climate Change introduces readers to the history and most significant flashpoints in climate justice through speculative fictions and social movements to explore post-disaster possibilities and the art of world-making.

Trumpet, is dead before the story begins. He is Joss Moody, a black Scottish jazz trumpeter, who has left a wife in deep mourning, and an adopted son, the defiantly ordinary and untalented Colman, in deep shock. For the posthumous medical report has revealed Joss Moody, his tall and handsome father, revered in the jazz world, to be a woman. Joss's widow, Millie, holes up in a Scottish fishing village in a house she and her husband shared, reeling from the press coverage of her marriage and overwhelmed by grief. Colman meanwhile, raging against what he perceives as his father's duplicity and perversion, colludes with tabloid journalist Sophie Stones in a facile and sensationalist rewriting of Moody's history.

Finding ways to understand the nature of social change and social order-from political movements to market meltdowns-is one of the enduring problems of social science. A Theory of Fields draws together far-ranging insights from social movement theory, organizational theory, and economic and political sociology to construct a general theory of social organization and strategic action. In a work of remarkable synthesis, imagination, and analysis, Neil Fligstein and Doug McAdam propose that social change and social order can be understood through what they call strategic action fields. They posit that these fields are the general building blocks of political and economic life, civil society, and the state, and the fundamental form of order in our world today. Similar to Russian dolls, they are nested and connected in a broader environment of almost countless proximate and overlapping fields. Fields are mutually dependent; change in one often triggers change in another. At the core of the theory is an account of how social actors fashion and maintain order in a given field. This sociological theory of action, what they call "social skill," helps explain what individuals do in strategic action fields to gain cooperation or engage in competition. To demonstrate the breadth of the theory, Fligstein and McAdam make its abstract principles concrete through extended case studies of the Civil Rights Movement and the rise and fall of the market for mortgages in the U.S. since the 1960s. The book also provides a "how-to" guide to help others implement the approach and discusses methodological issues. With a bold new approach, A Theory of Fields offers both a rigorous and practically applicable way of thinking through and making sense of social order and change-and how one emerges from the other-in modern, complex societies.

I am particularly impressed by the interdisciplinary nature of this book and the painstaking effort at creating a collection of empirical papers that build upon each other in an additive fashion. This book is a "must have" in the personal library of corporate governance scholars and should be widely used around doctoral programs in strategy around the world.' - Luis Gomez-Mejia, Arizona State University, US This unique volume brings together contributions on corporate governance published in various disciplines, including accounting, economics, finance and management. Mahmoud Ezzamel presents a collection of seminal papers that focus on the relationship between boards of directors and corporate governance. Governance, Directors and Boards investigates such important issues as the composition of boards of directors, their key overall roles as mechanisms of governance, the impact of the board on the nature of decision making in contemporary organisations, and the role of the relationship between the board and the determination of executive remuneration.

"Bütün bu yüzyıllar boyunca kadınlar, erkeği olduğundan iki kat büyük gösteren bir ayna görevi gördüler, büyülü bir aynaydı bu ve müthiş bir yansıtma gücü vardı. Böyle bir güç olmasaydı dünya hâlâ bataklık ve balta girmemiş ormanlardan ibaret olurdu. Savaşlarda zafer kazanıldığı duyulmazdı... Çar ve Kayzer ne taç giyerler, ne de tahttan inerlerdi. Uygar toplumlarda hangi işe yararlarsa yarasınlar, bütün şiddet ya da kahramanlık eylemlerinde aynalar gereklidir. İşte bu yüzden Napoléon da Mussolini de kadınların erkeklerden aşağı olduğunda bu kadar ısrarcıdırlar, eğer onlar aşağıda olmasalardı kendileri büyüyemezlerdi." Kendine Ait Bir Oda, Virginia Woolf'un 1928 yılında kapılarını kadınlara yeni yeni açmakta olan Cambridge Üniversitesi'ndeki kız öğrencilere hitaben yaptığı bir konuşması üzerine şekillenmiştir. İngiltere'de kadınların seçme ve seçilme hakkını elde etmelerinden bir yıl sonra yayımlanan kitap o tarihten günümüze feminizm tartışmalarının locus classicus'u olageldi. Jane Austen ve Charlotte Brontë'den, kadınların niçin bir Savaş ve Barış yazamadıklarına; Shakespeare'in hayali kız kardeşinden bugün de tartışılmaya devam eden kadının yoksulluğu ve namusu başlıklarına, hatta yaratıcılığın doğasına kadar uzanan geniş bir yelpazede kalemini özgürce oynatan Woolf, kadınlara edebiyat alanında bir çıkış yolu gösteriyor. "Bir kadın eğer kurmaca yazacaksa, parası ve kendine ait bir odası olmalıdır," diyen Virginia Woolf'un sesi, aradan geçen sekseni aşkın yıla rağmen gücünü ve etkinliğini koruyor.
