  1. The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion (Paperback) The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion (Paperback)
    The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion (Paperback)

    Jonathan Haidt

    ₱884.00

    From the author of The Happiness Hypothesis, a groundbreaking investigation into the origins of morality, which turns out to be the basis for religion and politics.

    Morality, religion, and politics all grow out of the tension between two conflicting imperatives: outcompete your peers, and unite with your peers to outcompete other groups. An obsession with righteousness, leading inevitably to self-righteousness, is the normal human condition.

    Dangerous Ideas: A brief history of censorship in the west, from the ancients to fake news (Paperback)

    Eric Berkowitz

    ₱969.00

    A fascinating examination of how restricting speech has continuously shaped our culture, and how censorship is used as a tool to prop up authorities and maintain class and gender disparities

    Through compelling narrative, historian Eric Berkowitz reveals how drastically censorship has shaped our modern society. More than just a history of censorship, Dangerous Ideas illuminates the power of restricting speech; how it has defined states, ideas, and culture; and (despite how each of us would like to believe otherwise) how it is something we all participate in.

    ₱1,080.00

    Carol Leonnig has been reporting on the Secret Service for The Washington Post for most of the last decade, bringing to light the secrets, scandals, and shortcomings that plague the agency today—from a toxic work culture to dangerously outdated equipment to the deep resentment within the ranks at key agency leaders, who put protecting the agency’s once-hallowed image before fixing its flaws. But the Secret Service wasn’t always so troubled.

    Richard Stengel

    Disinformation is as old as humanity. When Satan told Eve nothing would happen if she bit the apple, that was disinformation. But the rise of social media has made disinformation even more pervasive and pernicious in our current era. In a disturbing turn of events, governments are increasingly using disinformation to create their own false narratives, and democracies are proving not to be very good at fighting it.

    Richard Sakwa

    ₱1,049.00

    Richard Sakwa here unpicks the context of conflicted Ukrainian identity and of Russo-Ukrainian relations and traces the path to the recent disturbances through the events which have forced Ukraine, a country internally divided between East and West, to choose between closer union with Europe or its historic ties with Russia. In providing the first full account of the ongoing crisis, Sakwa analyses the origins and significance of the Euromaidan Protests, examines the controversial Russian military intervention and annexation of Crimea, reveals the extent of the catastrophe of the MH17 disaster and looks at possible ways forward following the October 2014 parliamentary elections.

    Daron Acemoglu, James A. Robinson

    ₱990.00

    One of the Financial Times’ Best Books of 2019
    Shortlisted for the Lionel Gelber Prize

    From the authors of Why Nations Fail, a crucial framework that answers the question of how liberty flourishes in some states but falls to authoritarianism or anarchy in others—and explains how it can weather new threats.

    In Why Nations Fail, Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson argued that countries rise and fall based not on culture, geography, or chance, but on the power of their institutions. In The Narrow Corridor, they build a new theory about liberty and how to achieve it, drawing a wealth of evidence from both current affairs and disparate threads of world history.

    Steven W. Mosher

    ₱934.00

    Steven Mosher exposes the resurgent aspirations of the would-be hegemon—and the roots of China’s will to domination in its five-thousand-year history of ruthless conquest and assimilation of other nations, brutal repression of its own people, and belligerence toward any civilization that challenges its claim to superiority.

    The naïve idealism of our “China hands” has lulled America into a fool’s dream of “engagement” with the People’s Republic of China and its “peaceful evolution” toward democracy and freedom. Wishful thinking, says Mosher, has blinded us to the danger we face and left the world vulnerable to China’s overweening ambitions.

    Randall Kennedy

    ₱1,375.00

    In addition to a brave and bracing inquiry into the origins, uses, and impact of the infamous word, this edition features an extensive new introduction that addresses major developments in its evolution during the last two decades of its vexed history.

    In the new introduction to his classic work, Kennedy questions the claim that “nigger” is the most tabooed term in the American language, faced with the implacable prevalence of its old-fashioned anti-Black sense. “Nigger” continues to be part of the loud soundtrack of the worst instances of racial aggression in American life—racially motivated assaults and murders, arson, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and workplace harassment.
