    Agamben And Politics: A Critical Introduction
    Sergei Prozorov - Paperback - Edinburgh University Press
    Agamben's commentators and critics tend to focus on his powerful critique of the Western political tradition in the 'Homo Sacer' series. But this narrow focus serves to obscure the overall structure of Agamben's political thought, which is neither negative nor critical but affirmative. Sergei Prozorov brings out the affirmative mood of Agamben's political thought, focusing on the concept of inoperativity, which has been central to Agamben's work from his earliest writings.

    The A-Z Of Being A Student
    Innes MacKay - Paperback - Matador
    This is set on the bridge between adolescent dreams and adult realities; and between the town of Oban where Innes MacKay grew up, and the city of Glasgow where he planned to buy his first penthouse. The first of his family to go to university, Innes had assumed that a degree certificate came with a job and a BMW. Then, at the start of his final year, three words from a course mate shatter his dreams and leave him desperate to turn his time at uni into to an unlikely success story, rather than a fruitless, expensive withdrawal on his liver cells and bank account.
