    Murdoch's PoliticsHow One Mans Thirst For Wealth and Power Shapes Our WorldDavid McKnight is a Senior Research Fellow at the Journalism and Media Research Centre at the University of New South Wales, Australia. He is the award-winning author of Beyond Right and Left: New Politics and the Culture War and has worked as a journalist at the Sydney Morning Herald, ABC TV's prestigious investigative programme Four Corners and on the Weekly Tribune.Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation is the most powerful media organisation in the world. Murdoch's commercial success is obvious, but less well understood is his successful pursuit of political goals, using News Corporation as his vehicle. In Murdoch's Politics, David McKnight tracks Murdoch's influence, from his support for Reagan and Thatcher, to his attacks on Barack Obama and the Gordon Brown government. He examines the secretive corporate culture of News Corporation: its private political seminars for editors, its sponsorship of think tanks and its recurring editorial campaigns around the world. Following the phone hacking crisis and possible bribery charges which have tarnished Murdoch's personal reputation and his media empire, this book is a highly topical study of one of the most influential and controversial figures of the modern age.$29.95 Pb, ISBN 9780745333465, NZRP$39.95Publish February 2013, 248 pagesPluto

    From the book:While being ruthlessly devoted to making money, Murdoch has given equal attention to shaping News Corporation as a crusading corporation, a media institution with a mission. Publicly, his newspapers and TV interests such as Fox News systematically articulate Murdochs political values and provide a soapbox for conservative writers and intellectuals. Privately, News Corporation has a deeply political corporate culture, sponsoring think tanks and holding political seminars for editors and executives where editorial campaigns are hammered out.

    Chasing GideonGideon v. Wainwright Fifty Years LaterKaren Houppert is a contributing writer at The Washington Post Magazine. On March 18, 1963, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled in Gideon v. Wainwright that all defendants charged with a crime punishable by imprisonment of more than a year have the constitutional right to free legal counsel if they cannot afford their own. Karen Houppert examines the legacy of this landmark decision, chronicling the cases of defendants across the country who have relied on Gideon's promise. Houppert's investigation takes her from Washington state, where overextended public These compelling narratives illuminate reform efforts as well as the critical problems that plague indigent defense in the United States, helping us to understand how and why it is failing, and what can be done to better fulfill Gideon's promise.

    Free WillThe BasicsMeghan Griffith is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Davidson College, USA. She specializes in free will and action theory.The question of whether humans are free to make their own decisions has long been debated and it continues to be a controversial topic today. In Free Will: The Basics readers are provided with a clear and accessible introduction to this central but challenging philosophical problem. The questions which are discussed include: Does free will exist? Or is it illusory? Can we be free even if everything is determined by a chain of causes? If our actions are not determined, does this mean they are just random or a matter of luck? In order to have the kind of freedom required for moral responsibility, must we have alternatives? What can recent developments in science tell us about the existence of free will? Because these questions are discussed without prejudicing one view over others and all technical terminology is clearly explained, this book is an ideal introduction to free will for the uninitiated.$29.95 Pb, ISBN 9780415562201, NZRP$34.95Publish February 2013, 192 pagesRoutledge

    The Archaeology of the Prussian CrusadeHoly War and ColonisationAleksander Pluskowski, Reading University, UK.The author explores the archaeology and material culture of the crusade against the Prussian tribes in the 13th century, and the subsequent society created by the Teutonic Order which lasted into the 16th century. It encompasses the full range of archaeological data, from standing buildings through to artefacts and ecofacts, integrated with written and artistic sources. The work is sub-divided into broadly chronological themes, beginning with a historical outline, exploring the settlements, castles, towns and landscapes of the Teutonic Order's theocratic state and concluding with the role of the reconstructed and ruined monuments of medieval Prussia in the modern world in the context of modern Polish culture.

    Constitutional MythsWhat We Get Wrong and How to Get It RightRay Raphael, Humboldt State University, USA.With the entry of the Tea Party onto the political scene, the U.S. Constitution has become a political battleground, with liberals and conservatives trading fire over its meaning and intent. In this book, he sorts out truth from fiction, juxtaposing what historians know about the Constitution with what most Americans (and politicians) think they know about it. The surprising misconceptions Raphael corrects include the Framers embraced limited government, the Framers were enlightened and disinterested statesmen, not politicians pushing special interests, the Constitution promoted democracy and promised equality, the Founding Fathers gave us the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution provided the "final answer" and must forever endure.
