Body/sex/work : intimate, embodied and sexualized labour / edited by Carol Wolkowitz … [et al.].- Houndmills (Basingstoke, Hampshire) ; New York : Palgrave Macmillan, 2013.- XIII, 261 p. : gráf. ; 24 cm.- 

Signatura: 4B-19070.

Body/Sex/Work focuses on the intimate, embodied and sexualised labour that occurs within body work and sex work. Bringing together an internationally renowned group of academics, it explores, empirically and theoretically, labour processes, workplace relations, regulation and resistance in some of the many work sites that make up the body work and sex work sectors. The book makes a key contribution to body studies and to research recognizing the embodiment of labour,  reframing the key questions in critical studies of work and employment.

Key Benefits:

• The first book that draws together the sub-disciplines of body work and sex work
• Written by leading international experts
• Contains cutting-edge empirical research on contemporary topics

Body/Sex/Work is an ideal companion for upper-level undergraduate and postgraduate students of labour and organisation studies, body studies, gender, and sexuality. It will also appeal to researchers and lecturers in these fields.

‘This book is a thought-provoking and timely contribution to important debates on the lived experience and management of the body at work. The authors of the various chapters in Body/Sex/Work explore this relationship in a variety of fascinating yet relatively neglected workplace settings, offering significant insights that should be of considerable interest to students and researchers within a range of social science disciplines.’ –

Dr. Melissa Tyler, Reader in Management, University of Essex, UK

‘This is an important book which makes a much needed contribution to the sociology of work as it draws together sex-work and body-work conceptually. In doing so it carefully reflects the intimate, embodied and sexualised labour of these two modes of work, through examples ranging from erotic dance, hairdressing, the care of residents in nursing homes, to phone sex workers.’ –

Dr. Rachela Colosi, University of Lincoln, UK

‘This book makes two key contributions. By using the lens of employment and employment relations to study body work, it throws light on how this work is socially organized, for example in terms of commodification and space for resistance. And its insights into this form of labour advance our wider understanding of the varieties of work and employment in modern economies.’ –

Paul Edwards, Professor of Employment Relations and Head of the Department of Management, University of Birmingham, UK

El derecho humano a la paz : de la teoría a la práctica / Carlos Villán Durán, Carmelo Faleh Pérez (dirs.) ; [prólogo de Federico Mayor Zaragoza].- Madrid : Fundacion CIDEAL : AECID, 2013.- 216 p. : fot. ; 22 cm.

Signatura: 4B-19153

El desarrollo humano sólo es posible en un escenario de paz. Regular y garantizar la existencia de este escenario es el objetivo que persigue el derecho humano a la paz.

El libro aborda este derecho, tanto en la configuración doctrinal y técnico-jurídica que está experimentando como en su proyección en la práctica respecto a las realidades de América Latina y, más concretamente, de Guatemala y México.

Encierra esta obra el complejo pero necesario cometido de trasladar el valor universal de la paz a la categoría de derecho humano. Con este fin, reúne las contribuciones de destacados juristas impulsores del reconocimiento de este derecho en el seno de la Organización de las Naciones Unidas, que nos ofrecen una amplia perspectiva de la cuestión, tanto desde el acercamiento teórico como desde el análisis de casos reales.

Sustainability / Leslie Paul Thiele.- Cambridge : Polity, 2013.- VIII, 234 p. ; 23 cm.- (Key concepts).

Signatura: 4B-15754

The pursuit of sustainability has generated lifestyle changes for individuals across the globe, widespread initiatives within civil society and business, historic policies for municipal, regional, and national governments, and crucial protocols and agreements by international organizations. Increasingly, sustainability provides a common language and goal for diverse peoples and nations. Yet the meaning of sustainability remains unsettled, and the term frequently serves as a PR strategy–a green veneer for business as usual–rather than a driver of fundamental change.

Leslie Paul Thiele’s accessible yet thorough book provides a broad-ranging introduction to the concept and practice of sustainability today. It addresses the history, scope, and contested meanings of sustainability as an ethical ideal, an ascendant ideology, and a common-sense approach to living in an ever more crowded world of increasingly scarce resources. Key topics covered include environmental health and ecological resilience, the promise and unintended consequences of technology, political and legal challenges, economic limits and opportunities, and cultural change.

Unlike most other approaches to this crucial topic, Thiele argues that sustainability requires innovation and adaptation as much as the conservation of resources. His book will be a valuable resource for students in a broad range of courses, including environmental studies and related areas, as well as general readers keen to grapple with one of the most pressing issues of our times.
