Contemporary Adulthood and the Night-Time Economy

by Oliver Smith

Unpicking the lives of dedicated drinkers, hedonists and adult consumers, Contemporary Adulthood and the Night-Time Economy examines the emergence of new forms of cultural and aesthetic attachment to alcohol and reconsiders the way we think about and use our city centres. The first generation to experience the new experiential markets of the night-time economy are now in their thirties and forties, but have been largely neglected in research on alcohol consumption and night-time leisure practices. While the general assumption appears to be that such individuals simply grow up and grow out of excessive alcohol consumption and adopt the identity of a respectable adult, Contemporary Adulthood and the Night-Time Economy highlights how the late night city centre continues to act as a significant draw and as a means of examining the relationship between consumer capitalism and the erosion of traditional adult identity. For committed consumers the night-time economy represents part of a powerful trend that is destabilising identity, cultivating narcissism and infantilising a generation.

Internet Governance and the Global South

by Abu Bhuiyan

A welcome addition to Palgrave's Global Media Policy and Business series, Internet Governance and the Global South documents the role of the global south in Internet policymaking and challenges the globalization theories that declared the death of the state in global decision-making. Abu Bhuiyan argues that the global Internet politics is primarily a conflict between the states - the United States of America and the states of the global south - because the former controls Internet policymaking. The states of the global south have been both oppositional and acquiescing to the sponsored policies of the United States on Internet issues such as digital divide, multilingualism, intellectual property rights and cyber security. They do not oppose the neoliberal underpinnings of the policies promoted by the United States, but ask for an international framework to govern the Internet so that they can work as equal partners in setting norms for the global Internet.

On the Uses and Abuses of Political Apologies

by Mathias Thaler Mihaela Mihai

Recent decades have witnessed a sharp rise in the number of state apologies for historical and more recent injustices, ranging from enslavement to displacement and from violations of treaties to war crimes, all providing the backdrop to displays of official regret. Featuring a host of leading authors in the field, this book seeks to contribute to the growing literature on official apologies by effectively combining philosophical reflection and empirical analysis. It achieves two interrelated goals: it enriches the theoretical debates on the nature and functions of apologies while bringing forth new insights from hitherto unexamined normative horizons. It further addresses often overlooked aspects of political apologies, such as their non-verbal dimension as well as religious overtones, while testing theoretical reflections through encounters with real practices of state apologies. Finally, the book explores the obstacles to, and the limitations of, political apologies. The result is an excellent interdisciplinary volume that affords the reader a better understanding of conditions for a legitimate and successful state apology.

Italy and the Mediterranean

by Valerio Ferme Norma Bouchard

The Mediterranean has always loomed large in the history and culture of Italy, and since the 1980s this relationship has been represented in ever more varied forms as both national and regional identities have evolved within a globalized context. This interdisciplinary volume puts Italian artists (writers, musicians, and filmmakers) and intellectuals (philosophers, sociologists, and political scientists) in conversation with each other to explore Italy's Mediterranean identity while questioning the boundaries between Self and Other, and between native and foreign bodies. By moving beyond nation-centric models of cultural and ethnic homogeneity based on myths of progress and rationality, these wide-ranging contributions fashion new ways of belonging that transcend the cultural, economic, religious, and social categories that have characterized post Cold War Italy and Europe.
