Book Summary:

“New Dark Age is among the most unsettling and illuminating books I’ve read about the Internet, which is to say that it is among the most unsettling and illuminating books I’ve read about contemporary life.” – New Yorker As the world around us increases in technological complexity, our understanding of it diminishes. Underlying this trend is a single idea: the belief that our existence is understandable through computation, and more data is enough to help us build a better world. In reality, we are lost in a sea of information, increasingly divided by fundamentalism, simplistic narratives, conspiracy theories, and post-factual politics. Meanwhile, those in power use our lack of understanding to further their own interests. Despite the apparent accessibility of information, we’re living in a new Dark Age. From rogue financial systems to shopping algorithms, from artificial intelligence to state secrecy, we no longer understand how our world is governed or presented to us. The media is filled with unverifiable speculation, much of it generated by anonymous software, while companies dominate their employees through surveillance and the threat of automation. In his brilliant new work, leading artist and writer James Bridle surveys the history of art, technology, and information systems, and reveals the dark clouds that gather over our dreams of the digital sublime.

Book Summary:

Our societies are growing more unequal, more hierarchical, meaner and less human every year. Voters appalled by the direction of current politics respond to leaders that articulate a cohesive and genuine progressivism. This book provides the framework for politicians and activists to deliver that vision, organised around the themes of cooperative solutions to social problem-solving and a social contract centred on rights and the equal dignity of all people. Drawing on contemporary Australian examples, 'Politics for the New Dark Age: Staying Positive Amidst Disorder' shows how the partisan divide recurs in policy debates from civil rights, to inequality, to economic growth, to the environment and foreign policy. It argues that we should recommit to fighting for our democracy in order to manage these social differences and channel them into opportunities for social progress. As a former Australian diplomat with ten years' experience writing political analysis for government, Anthony Skews is well placed to provide a comprehensive introduction to left-wing thought for the contemporary 'post-fact', politically polarised era. Above all, this book argues for an alternative future.

Book Summary:

Are we on the cusp of another dark age, in comparison to where we currently stand? The following does not even include the current strains and situations placed upon the world systems and networks of the economic, environmental, trade, food, and medical distribution. And differing positive and negative separates movements. Nor does it consider the instruction of the younger generations that are currently hampered due to our inability to adjust the times, of which the lasting effects remain to be seen. Even the argument of what is truth has become a point of debate for many. In this current pandemic, both those that believe that it is real and those that believe that it is a government farce, under their respective governments and regimes, seem to be more adamant about voicing their discontentment. Whether you agree or disagree with certain arguments is not the issue. The fact is individuals under the control of what some would consider both democratic and nondemocratic governments and those under authoritarian and antiauthoritarian regimes are experiencing unprecedented stress on their current systems. Civil unrest and distrust from populations in general, within existing governments and institutions of all kinds, seem to be spreading with more frequency and intensity. This distrust is not only more visible in antiauthoritarian and democratic regimes but also unusually more visible in more authoritarian and less democratic regimes. Governmental and nongovernmental entities of various political systems are beginning to cut off or limit the communicational networks between peoples within and without their borders. They are doing this out of the fear of what they personally define as civil unrest, schisms, or insurrections. Under the justification of preventing general schisms, civil unrest, insurrection, or treason many are limiting, censoring, or barring various accesses to communication networks. These various limitations are not isolated to one location or point of view in the world. The results of this slippery slope are already beginning to appear. The same justification (by dictionary definition) used by the more democratic and less authoritarian nations and regimes to prevent civil unrest are being used by less nondemocratic and more authoritarian nations and regimes. Of course, these justifications are not in the same spirit. Some authoritarian regimes are even making what would appear to be bold moves to expand or solidify their current power. Or these current extreme measures being enacted could even be attributed to simply maintaining their current power and influence amidst the seemingly period of chaos. Barriers to communications, from various sides, is just one of the latest tools utilized by those wishing to remain in power, their opposition, extremists on all sides, as well as those on all sides wishing to avoid chaos. Communicational networks both denouncing and promoting different agendas are being censored or eliminated within many national, international, and spectrums. These actions are not limited to a type of nation, country, particular continent, or what the dissenting population subscribes to. These limitations are even extended outside the immediate scope of politics. Populations from a variety of differing and various regimes and governments that are less authoritarian, more authoritarian, more accountable to the will of the people, and less accountable to the will of their people seem to be selecting and cutting off modes and avenues of communications. Not only are they attempting to cut off communication networks of their populace from outside their geographic location, but also their populace from each other within their geographical location. In this moment of global crises that we have we are experiencing it seems to me that these situations are isolating and making us more competitively aggressive and suspicious of each other rather than bringing us more cooperative with one another. It appears to me that nations, cultures, and long held institutions are not only experiencing increased and more frequent divisions, but also strengthened schisms. Populations on all sides are becoming more vocal. Different polarizations of differing views and opinions seem to be growing rather than receding as well as becoming more actively reactionary. Extremists of many sides and of many opinions seem to be growing in numbers, becoming more hardened, and/or more entrenched with more strident followers. And those splintered groups that have been thwarted, both for and against all the many arguments, are regrouping. Extremism as well as good as separatism for the good or bad, depending on your point of view, seem to be emboldened and making more of a significant foothold in societies throughout the world. www.JeremyBoggess.com

Book Summary:

In this fascinating presentation of faith, Charles Fensham argues cogently and passionately for a church that embraces hope in spite of the dark and destructive pressures all around it. Although a metaphoric dark time awaits Christianity, Fensham assures his readers that this darkness merely conceals the light for the future. "Emerging from the Dark Age Ahead " offers a prophetic and challenging call for contemporary Christians to ask where we have come from, where we are, and where we are going. "Professor Fensham borrows from Jane Jacobs the metaphor of 'the Dark Age ahead, ' bringing social and cultural analysis to bear upon a fresh theology of church and mission for our time and place. Drawing from deep roots in the trinitarian tradition, and borrowing insight from historic monasticism, he calls for a pilgrim, steward church that will speak and act constructively in the coming time of troubles. This is a creative, original work that will stimulate theological students and lay folk as well."-Harold Wells, Professor Emeritus, Emmanuel College, University of Toronto "Insightful, provocative, instructive-words that describe how this book helps the church navigate the deep cultural challenge it now faces of massive technique organized through digitalization. Grounding the church's life in a missional hermeneutic of reading Scripture and the church's identity in the social Trinity, Fensham boldly, yet carefully, charts a course for engaging the dark age ahead."- Craig Van Gelder, Ph.D., Professor of Congregational Mission, Luther Seminary Charles Fensham has a unique perspective on the emergent church. Born in apartheid South Africa and raised within the apartheid-tainted Reformed church, he is an immigrant to Canada with experiences of the church in France, Switzerland, the South Pacific and Africa. He teaches at Knox College at the University of Toronto.

Book Summary:

The book presents a world-system study based in neomedieval thinking. By utilizing this stream, it frees itself from the Westphalian lens while keeping itself firmly rooted in an empirical analysis. The book divides the world into three ideal-type geopolitical settings that interact among each other, which, in turn, affects geopolitical actors located inside them. It allows the reader to obtain an alternative understanding of the dynamic geopolitical environment of the contemporary world. The three main sections of the book contain the development of the theoretical model, empirical analysis of the global political map, and analysis of the impacts of the application of the theoretical model for the understanding of the global system. The book raises the question of conceptualization of the contemporary global order and answers it by dividing the map of the world into the three spheres and analyzing the impact of such an understanding of the world system. Spatial analysis is utilized to present the consequences of the analytical division of the global system into three ideal-types. The case studies are selected not to test the theory at hand, but to better illustrate the impacts as to make the case as clear to the readers as possible.

Book Summary:

When states’ survival is at stake, do states behave according to norms, do states refrain from using certain weapons based on norms against their use? Adachi presents a comprehensive analytical framework for analysing norm dynamics, incorporating the existing literature, while expanding the norm life cycle model to address contestation of, resistance to diffusion of, and disappearance of norms. He also examines the changing nature of international society, and how the evolving characteristics of this society change how norms are shared. His focus is on norms relating to the use and non-use of weapons, with examples of how norms developed in different places and at different times with regard to particular types of weapons. From the banning of gun use in Japan under Bushido, to international bans on chemical weapons and the foundation of norms on nuclear weapons, he looks not only at how such norms come about, but how they can become contested or disappear. A valuable contribution to the literature on norms in International Relations, this volume will be of particular interest to scholars and students with an interest in the control of arms.
