Literary Nonfiction. Sports. Roger Federer is a modern obsession. He is one of those few athletes--like Muhammed Ali, or Usain Bolt--who has transcended his sport. His long career has seen him win the most Grand Slam singles titles of any man in history, while amassing untold wealth, and a heroic reputation. But why does Federer matter so much to so many people? In ROGER FEDERER: PORTRAIT OF AN ARTIST, Christopher Jackson considers Federer's place in philosophy, in history--and even in the history of aesthetics--to approach the meaning of the man. When you've finished this book, you'll never look at Federer--or at sport--in the same way again.

The Routledge Companion to Performance Philosophy is a volume of especially commissioned critical essays, conversations, collaborative, creative and performative writing mapping the key contexts, debates, methods, discourses and practices in this developing field. Firstly, the collection offers new insights on the fundamental question of how thinking happens: where, when, how and by whom philosophy is performed. Secondly, it provides a plurality of new accounts of performance and performativity – as the production of ideas, bodies and knowledges – in the arts and beyond. Comprising texts written by international artists, philosophers and scholars from multiple disciplines, the essays engage with questions of how performance thinks and how thought is performed in a wide range of philosophies and performances, from the ancient to the contemporary. Concepts and practices from diverse geographical regions and cultural traditions are analysed to draw conclusions about how performance operates across art, philosophy and everyday life. The collection both contributes to and critiques the philosophy of music, dance, theatre and performance, exploring the idea of a philosophy from the arts. It is crucial reading material for those interested in the hierarchy of the relationship between philosophy and the arts, advancing debates on philosophical method, and the relation between Performance and Philosophy more broadly.

Literary Nonfiction. Politics. Biography. June 2016. The EU referendum campaign is in full swing. The Tory elite jostles for the leadership. It's a moment which Julius Caesar would have understood. The possibility of power is in the air. While Boris Johnson and Michael Gove manoeuvred, one senior figure kept quiet. This was Theresa May, who would become the country's second female prime minister. But what happens to the electorate when a new person assumes power? And what role does chance play in politics? In this wide-ranging book, Christopher Jackson continues where he left off in his bestselling book on Roger Federer, attacking the complexity of modern life with a commitment to what can be learned from history, poetry and philosophy. After you've read this landmark study, you'll not only know more about the most powerful person in Britain--you'll also be reminded that writing about politics can be literature.

This book explores the phenomenon of soft power in international relations. In the context of current discourses on power and global power shift s, it puts forward a comprehensive taxonomy of soft power and outlines a methodological roadmap for its empirical study. To that end, the book classifies soft power into distinct components - resources, instruments, reception, and outcomes - and identifies relevant indicators for each of these categories.Moreover, the book integrates previously neglected aspects into the concept of soft power, including the significance of (political) personalities. A broad range of historical examples is drawn upon to illustrate the effects of soft power in international relations in an innovative and analytically differentiated way. A central methodological contribution of this book consists in highlighting the value of comparative-historical analysis (CHA) as a promising approach for empirical analyses of the soft power of different actors on the international stage.By introducing a comprehensive taxonomy of soft power, the book offers an innovative and substantiated perspective on a pivotal phenomenon in today’s international relations. As the forces of attraction in world politics continue to gain in importance, it provides a valuable asset for a broad readership. “In this important and thoughtful book, Hendrik Ohnesorge explains and advances our knowledge of the ways that soft power, public diplomacy, and charismatic personal diplomacy are shaping the international relations of our global information age.” Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Harvard University and author of The Future of Power
