In most of the world, the transition from life to death is a time of intense presence of states and other forms of authority. Focusing on the relationship between bodies and sovereignty, Governing the dead explores how, by whom and with what effects dead bodies are governed in conflict and non-conflict contexts across the world, including an analysis of the struggles over 'proper burials'; the repatriation of dead migrants; abandoned cemeteries; exhumations; 'feminicide'; the protection of dead drug-lords; and the disappeared dead. Mapping theoretical and empirical terrains, this volume suggests that the management of dead bodies is related to the constitution and membership of states and non-state entities that claim autonomy and impunity.This volume is a significant contribution to studies of death, power and politics. It will be useful at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels in anthropology, sociology, law, criminology, political science, international relations, genocide studies, history, cultural studies and philosophy.The research program leading to this publication has received funding from the European Research Council under the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP/2007-2013) / ERC Grant Agreement n° 283-617.

Political, economic, social, cultural and technological changes have led to profound transformations in the ways that death and loss are perceived and managed in contemporary society. Over the last few decades, the long term shift to chronic illness as a major causal factor has significantly increased the time scale of dying. Most people die in institutions and 'care' is typically medical. Many communities and ordinary citizens now relinquish control and involvement to experts in the last stages of life. However, at global and local levels, new institutional arrangements are emerging to govern the changing face of death, and a new model is being developed to counter claims of the 'creeping medicalisation' of death and dying. Emphasising the international context of the issues involved, this book illustrates the interlinking nature of society, death and loss, and gives examples of governance that promotes the empowerment, participation and the increasing need for the involvement of ordinary people and communities in differing social and cultural contexts. All chapters are written at an accessible level and will appeal to a wide readership. Part 1 of the book provides a sociological understanding of the governance of death and loss in international and historical contexts, and the implications for practice. Part 2 provides examples of good practice, drawing upon a sociological understanding.

Labor is not dead yet, but it desperately needs to change. In this book, Mark Latham and several leading young progressive thinkers look to the future. Not Dead Yet shows how Labor became a party of factional warlords. Latham proposes reforms to limit their power and renew the party, and outlines a new way forward – a “light-touch social democracy” which focuses on equality, social mobility, good services and some key policy challenges: education, poverty and climate change. He also examines the rise of the authoritarian right under the wing of Tony Abbott, and what to do about it. Following this, an array of younger voices have their say. The result is a passionate debate about how the party can reinvent itself and speak to a changed Australia. After years of leadership turmoil and the 2013 election defeat, the Labor Party has some serious soul-searching to do. This book is the place to start.

In the current period of globalization, Governing Interests presents new research on the impact of internationalization on the organization and representation of business interests through trade and employer associations. By exploring ongoing, gradual, but nevertheless profound changes in the structures and functions of business interest associations, the book develops a precise understanding of the relationship between the national and the international. Both conceptual and empirical, some papers included in this significant volume adopt a ‘bird's eye view’ of the topic, whilst others concentrate on individual industries or countries, and several, through examination and analysis, consider the effects on interest representation and the repercussions on effective governance. Contributed to and edited by leading academics, the diversity of research questions and methods used in this volume provide the reader with an excellent understanding of the subject and, importantly, caution against rash simplifications. Comprehensive and scholarly, this text will be of particular relevance to political scientists and sociologists.
