Description : A denunciation of the credentialed elite class that serves capitalism while insisting on its own progressive heroism Professional Managerial Class (PMC) elite workers labor in a world of performative identity and virtue signaling, publicizing an ability to do ordinary things in fundamentally superior ways. Author Catherine Liu shows how the PMC stands in the way of social justice and economic redistribution by promoting meritocracy, philanthropy, and other self-serving operations to abet an individualist path to a better world. Virtue Hoarders is an unapologetically polemical call to reject making a virtue out of taste and consumption habits. Forerunners: Ideas First is a thought-in-process series of breakthrough digital publications. Written between fresh ideas and finished books, Forerunners draws on scholarly work initiated in notable blogs, social media, conference plenaries, journal articles, and the synergy of academic exchange. This is gray literature publishing: where intense thinking, change, and speculation take place in scholarship.

Description : "The design and manufacture of books can tell as much about a people or a culture as the ambience of its streets and the architecture of its buildings."In our everyday lives, books surround us-even if we are among the many who never read another one after high school. Their very jacket design asks us to make meaning of their presence and, when we open them, the layout of words and stories within their covers makes us readers-even before we begin to read.To Robert Bringhurst, typographer, poet and writer, the presence of books and the story of books in Canada are preludes to understanding our culture.From the tattered book of Canadian poetry your moody cousin carried everywhere, to the pristine hardcover book of Atwood's latest work in your brainy co-worker's hands, book design says much about who and where we are as Canadians.In The Surface of Meaning, Robert Bringhurst takes us on another of his walking tours, this time through the bramble of English and French-Canadian books and book design, from the mid-18th Century to the present day. Along the way, he discovers a true "image trove" of identity, culture and history. And he does what no other work on books and publications does: He creates a truly national survey of Canadian books by bringing Canada's long history of Aboriginal story-telling into a context of "book". It is a context that goes into the depths of our prehistory, far beyond the printed page.The Surface of Meaning is a tribute to Canadian books and publishing. It is irresistible to readers who love books, as well as to designers and others, who may simply prefer to look at them.

Description : What does it mean to be a morally good person? It can be tempting to think that it is simply a matter of performing certain actions and avoiding others. And yet, there is much more to moral character than our outward actions. We expect a good person to not only behave in certain ways, but also to experience the world in certain ways within. Pleasure, emotion, and attention are important parts of our moral character despite being involuntary inner states. Inner Virtue defends a theory of why and how such states are relevant to moral character: These states say something about what kind of person one is by manifesting our deepest cares and concerns.
