Book Summary:

In Dreadful Desires Charlie Yi Zhang examines how the Chinese state deploys affective notions of love to regulate the population and secure China’s place in the global economy. Zhang shows how the state frames love as a set of desires that encompass heteronormative intimacy, familial and communal attachment, upward mobility, and private property ownership. These desires—as circulated in performance in the nationalistic ceremony, same-sex romantic fan fiction, the wildly popular reality television dating show If You Are the One, and the cult of patriarchal personality around Xi Jinping—are explicitly based in oppressive systems of gender, class, and sexuality. Zhang contends that such desires connect love to economic survival and gender normativity in ways that underwrite Chinese neoliberalism at the expense of individual flourishing. By outlining how state-framed forms of love create desires that cannot be fulfilled, Zhang places China at the forefront of using affective attachments to nation, leader, and family in the global shifts toward exploitation and authoritarianism.

Book Summary:

2 What if Jesus returns to earth with a message from his Father, God? Would the world’s religions listen? Would humanity listen? This book explores this possibility. God sends his only begotten Son to give the world a new way to see what he really intended when he started the whole thing. He wants to show mankind how they have misread what he intended. Jesus calls the leaders of all major religions to a meeting, where he will try and reconcile their beliefs to God’s wishes. Naturally, this visit stirs a great deal of controversy and many surprises. The conclusion of this visit is clear and easily understood. What does God want from us?

Book Summary:

Shakespeare's Big Men examines five Shakespearean tragedies - Julius Caesar, Hamlet, Othello, Macbeth, and Coriolanus - through the lens of generative anthropology and the insights of its founder, Eric Gans. Generative anthropology's theory of the origins of human society explains the social function of tragedy: to defer our resentment against the "big men" who dominate society by letting us first identify with the tragic protagonist and his resentment, then allowing us to repudiate the protagonist's resentful rage and achieve theatrical catharsis. Drawing on this hypothesis, Richard van Oort offers inspired readings of Shakespeare's plays and their representations of desire, resentment, guilt, and evil. His analysis revives the universal spirit in Shakespearean criticism, illustrating how the plays can serve as a way to understand the ethical dilemma of resentment and discover within ourselves the nature of the human experience.

Book Summary:

Prohibition was imposed by eager temperance movements organizers who sought to shape public behavior through alcoholic beverage control in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The success of reformers' efforts resulted in National Prohibition in America from 1920 to 1933, but it also resulted in a thriving illegal business in the manufacture and distribution of illegal liquor. The history of Prohibition and the resulting illegal drinking is frequently told through the lens of crime and violence in Chicago and other major East Coast cities. Often neglected are the effects of Prohibition on the Western part of the United States and how Westerners rose to the challenge of avoiding the consequences of illegal drinking. Illegal liquor was imported from abroad, made in stills using strange ingredients that were sometimes poisonous to the unlucky drinker. This history includes stories ranging from serious to quirky, and provides an entertaining account of how misguided efforts resulted in numerous unintended consequences.

Book Summary:

In the summer of 1816, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin and her lover Percy Bysshe Shelley visited Lord Byron at his villa by Lake Geneva. The eruption of Mount Tambora in 1815 had cast a long volcanic winter, and the weather was not conducive to outdoor pursuits. Instead the companions amused themselves by reading ghost stories, and Byron challenged them to write their own. A terrifying nightmare inspired the eighteen-year-old Mary to write the tale that she would later expand into her classic novel, Frankenstein: or “The Modern Prometheus”, a deeply disturbing story of one man's attempt to reanimate the dead, and the deadly consequences of his actions. Frankenstein has horrified readers since the novel's first publication in 1818, and is hailed as one of the pioneering works of gothic science fiction.
