Forget the term "New Age," says Mark Satin in the introduction to this 40th Anniversary Edition of his book New Age Politics. That term was tied to an historical moment. What this book is really about is the new politics arising out of the social movements of our time, among them the spiritual, ecological, feminist, human-potential, and decentralist movements. New Age Politics was the first book to show that these movements were producing a coherent new political perspective or ideology. Today that perspective goes by many names: green, holistic, radical centrist, transformational, transpartisan. It has made many advances through movements as diverse as the Green Party, Tea Party, and Occupy. But as futurist David Spangler points out in a new foreword, the foundational statement of this still-emerging new perspective was New Age Politics. This new edition, streamlined and updated for our time, draws on nearly 200 texts, and at least that many late-night conversations with activists. It is all here: our drive for a life-loving new consciousness and better values. Our critique of "deep monopolies" like the private automobile and doctor-dependent health care, not just brand-name monopolies. Our vision of an all-win future that empowers local communities and enhances global cooperation. Our strategy that encompasses both "inner work" (personal growth) and "outer work" - everything from electoral activity to nonviolent action that respects one's audiences. Today, New Age Politics is more relevant than ever. In his foreword to the German edition, systems thinker Fritjof Capra calls it "the blueprint for a new politics beyond ... left and right," and in his introduction Satin holds up this edition as a "common ground" on which all the real alternative movements of our time can stand. Those who want to steer contemporary movements away from the twin shoals of Marxism and liberalism and toward a healing future that is uniquely their own will find this book especially useful.

Throughout history, maps have been a powerful tool in the constitutive imaginary of governments seeking to define or contest the limits of their political reach. Today, new digital technologies have become central to mapping as a way of formulating alternative political visions. Mapping can also help marginalised communities to construct speculative designs using participatory practices. Mapping and Politics in the Digital Age explores how the development of new digital technologies and mapping practices are transforming global politics, power, and cooperation. The book brings together authors from across political and social theory, geography, media studies and anthropology to explore mapping and politics across three sections. Contestations introduces the reader to contemporary developments within mapping and explores the politics of mapping as a form of knowledge and contestation. Governance analyses mapping as a set of institutional practices, providing key methodological frames for understanding global governance in the realms of urban politics, refugee control, health crises and humanitarian interventions and new techniques of biometric regulation and autonomic computation. Imaginaries provides examples of future-oriented analytical frameworks, highlighting the transformation of mapping in an age of digital technologies of control and regulation. In a world conceived as without borders and fixed relations, new forms of mapping stress the need to rethink assumptions of power and knowledge. This book provides a sophisticated and nuanced analysis of the role ofmapping in contemporary global governance, and will be of interest to students and researchers working within politics, geography, sociology, media, and digital culture and technology.

This book comprehensively describes the impact of modern technologies on political leadership by providing a new paradigm of the phenomenon of neo-leadership, that is political leadership oriented on creating both the image and political influence on the Internet. It examines its functioning in the new media environment and identifies the most important transforming trends, taking into account their impact on political and social relations in an era of dynamic technological development. Systematically exploring various dimensions of leadership, it presents new notions relevant in a networked world where leaders are created and conduct themselves against the backdrop of a technological revolution, including the development of AI, automation, algorithms and ultrafast networks, all of which strengthen or disrupt their impact and create a new set of virtual authorities exerting an increasing impact on society, ethical considerations and political life and requiring new methods for study. This book will be of key interest to scholars, students and practitioners of leadership and elite studies, media and communication studies, political marketing, political science, international relations; public policy, and sociology.

THE INTERNET, POLITICS AND THE NEW AGE is a 90-page book that brings to light the real motivations of the psychopaths who govern countries, lead companies and run banks. It fearlessly points out the hypocrisy of some spiritual masters who speak of heavenly peace while hiding aspects of their very earthly lives. It contains a prophecy for the coming centuries that is entirely different from the usual catastrophism. And it reveals the disturbing possibility of a future led by self-conscious machines. "I have laughed a lot at the author's description of the different types of business, political, and spiritual leaders. A courageous work that reaches depths I have never seen before. Without a doubt, this is the book the oligarchs of power don't want you to read" - DAVE ZIMMERMAN. About the collection THE BOOKS OF GUNTHER EMDE: "A magnificent revulsion, an explosion of truth amidst official lies, a display of depth in times of superficiality. Gunther Emde's books are the Tao Te King of the 21st century, for their incredible conciseness, lucidity and honesty" - THOMAS JENKINS. "A collection of small books that nevertheless contain the greatest number of truths per page that I have ever read. Each paragraph expresses ideas so surprising that you have to stop and reflect. An exciting journey that changes your life forever" - LOUISE MAHLER. "Finally someone dismantles the false arguments of the official version, in every area imaginable, from nutrition to spirituality, in a collection that will undoubtedly be a reference for the next generations. Gunther Emde is not only carrying the world on his shoulders, but is directing it to new heights of wisdom" - MARKUS STENDT. "I have read the three books, three little jewels that are a brilliant and at times hilarious deconstruction of post-modernity. They are already my bedside books, a guide for life's difficult moments" - WILHELM STEIN

A social anxiety currently pervades the political classes of the western world, arising from the perception that young people have become disaffected with liberal democratic politics. Voter turnout among 18-25 year olds continues to be lower than other age groups and they are less likely to join political parties. This is not, however, proof that young people are not interested in politics per se but is evidence that they are becoming politically socialized within a new media environment. This shift poses a significant challenge to politicians who increasingly have to respond to a technologically mediated lifestyle politics that celebrates lifestyle diversity, personal disclosure and celebrity. This book explores alternative approaches for engaging and understanding young people’s political activity and looks at the adoption of information and ICTs as a means to facilitate the active engagement of young people in democratic societies. Young Citizens in a Digital Age presents new research and the first comprehensive analysis of ICTs, citizenship and young people from an international group of leading scholars. It is an important book for students and researchers of citizenship and ICTs within the fields of sociology, politics, social policy and communication studies among others.

The current political conflicts in Somalia and Russia make the reappearance of this book as relevant as ever. Politics and Culture in International History illumines world politics by identifying the causes of conflict and war and assessing the validity of schemes for peace and unity. Bozeman maintains that political systems are grounded in cultures; thus, international relations are by definition hitercultural relations. She deals exclusively with the thought patterns of the world's literate civilizations and societies between the fourth millenium B.C. and the fifteenth century A.D. In a substantial new introduction, Bozeman analyzes world politics over the last half century, showing how the interplay of politics and culture has intensified. She notes that the world's assembly of states is no longer held together by substantive accords on norms, purposes, and values, but by loose agreements on the use offorms, techniques, and words. The causes and effects of these changes between the 1950s and 1990s are assayed by Bozeman.

Drawing on previously unknown or unassimilated sources, Donald C. Hodges here presents an entirely new interpretation of the politics and philosophy of Augusto C. Sandino, the intellectual progenitor of Nicaragua's Sandinista revolution. The first part of the book investigates the political sources of Sandino's thought in the works of Babeuf, Buonarroti, Blanqui, Proudhon, Bakunin, Most, Malatesta, Kropotkin, Ricardo Flores Magon, and Lenin - a mixed legacy of pre-Marxist and non-Marxist authoritarian and libertarian communists. The second half of the study scrutinizes the philosophy of nature and history that Sandino made his own. Hodges delves deeply into this philosophy as the supreme and final expression of Sandino's communism and traces its sources in the Gnostic and millenarian occult undergrounds. This results in a rich study of the ways in which Sandino's revolutionary communism and communist spirituality intersect - spiritual politics that Hodges presents as more realistic than the communism of Karl Marx. While accepting the current wisdom that Sandino was a Nicaraguan liberal and social reformer, Hodges also makes a persuasive case that Sandino was first and foremost a communist, although neither of the Marxist nor anarchist variety. He argues that Sandino's eclectic communist spirituality was more of an asset than a liability for understanding the human condition, and that his spiritual politics promises to be more relevant than Marxism-Leninism for the twenty-first century. Indeed, Hodges believes that Sandino's holistic communism embraces both deep ecology and feminist spirituality - a finding that is sure to generate lively and productive debate.

This history of the iconic early-20th-century journal New Age and its editor, A. R. Orage, presents an overview of the development of social thought during this period. Key thinkers including Hilaire Belloc, G. K. Chesterton, H. G. Wells, and George Bernard Shaw were among the writers published in New Age, as was Friedrich Nietzsche, in his first introduction to the British public. The political, social, and literary writing included in the journal also illustrates the personal tensions in Orage's life as he probed the nature of his own spiritual fulfillment by connecting it to national and social liberation.
