A Primer for Scientists

The Profits of Nature

Peter B. Lavelle

Peter B. Lavelle uses the life and career of the statesman Zuo Zongtang as a lens to explore the environmental history of nineteenth-century China. The Profits of Nature offers a new approach to understanding the dynamic relationship between imperial crisis, natural resources, and colonial development during a critical juncture in Chinese history.

Chaos, Territory, Art

Deleuze and the Framing of the Earth

Elizabeth Grosz

Elizabeth Grosz argues that art-especially architecture, music, and painting-is born from the disruptive forces of sexual selection. She approaches art as a form of erotic expression connecting sensory richness with primal desire, and in doing so, finds that the meaning of art comes from the intensities and sensations it inspires, not just its intention and aesthetic.

The Uyghurs

Strangers in Their Own Land

Gardner Bovingdon

For more than half a century many Uyghurs, members of a Muslim minority in northwestern China, have sought to achieve greater autonomy or outright independence. While both the Chinese state and foreign analysts have portrayed Uyghur activists as Muslim terrorists, situating them within global terrorist networks, Bovingdon argues that these assumptions are flawed, drawing a clear line between Islamist ideology and Uyghur nationhood.
