Manus I Midlarsky
Political extremism is one of the most pernicious, destructive and nihilistic forms of human expression. During the 20th century, in excess of 100 million people had their lives taken from them as the result of extremist violence. In this wide-ranging book Manus I. Midlarsky suggests that ephemeral gains, together with mortality salience, form basic explanations for the origins of political extremism and constitute a theoretical framework that also explains later mass violence. Midlarsky applies his framework to multiple forms of political extremism including the rise of Italian, Hungarian and Romanian fascism, Nazism, radical Islamism, and Soviet, Chinese and Cambodian communism. Other applications include a rampaging military (Japan, Pakistan, Indonesia) and extreme nationalism in Serbia, Croatia, the Ottoman Empire and Rwanda. Polish anti-Semitism after World War II and the rise of separatist violence in Sri Lanka are also examined.

Indigenous Aesthetics critically investigates the intersection of contemporary native art and anti-colonial politics. In the wake of the near universal adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, a text of this nature is crucial as contemporary indigenous artists, activists, and curators continue to change the landscape of indigeneity and the political possibilities of self-determination (both political and artistic). No other single-authored book has explored the relationship between contemporary artistic practice and indigenous activism.With a focus on non-traditional indigenous practices, Miner explores the discourses and the artistic and aesthetic sites in which contemporary Native artists are participating. In this way, an engaged analysis of contemporary art – including popular and street art, indigenous theory, and curatorial work – appropriately positions news ways of seeing indigenous North American art. Written from an indigenist perspective, one which incorporates Western theories, yet couched in contemporary indigenous ontologies, Indigenous Aesthetics is the first book of its kind to discuss contemporary Native art in relationship to radical politics and/or aesthetics.
This book reveals a new concept that all great leaders have utilized but few if any have recognized: By presenting followers with a goal that offers a better future, thereby eliminating fears or major concerns, the leader creates an environment where teamwork naturally thrives, making extremely difficult objectives obtainable. This motivates followers, eliminating the need to utilize critical resources for motivation, and creating an efficiency that no supervision could ever achieve. Once followers start working as a team for the good of the organization, improvements naturally follow, especially in quality. Until now, definitions for quality have been vague and unhelpful at guiding organizations on where to improve. The new definition for quality introduced in this book will assist leaders in any organization to clarify exactly what quality is for that organization, making it possible for each worker to improve their products and services with each action taken. The benefits gained will improve employee and customer satisfaction to previously unheard-of levels. A clarification of how feelings impact overall results will change how future employees and organizations behave, creating an environment that is highly sustainable.
