BLOGISTAN
The Internet andPolitics in Iran
A. Srebeny,
SOAS
&G. Khiabany,
Universityof Westminster
The Islamic Republic of Iran – of all places – has become a hub of cyber activity.It has anestimated 700,000 bloggers.The Internet iscelebrated as an agent of social change incountries like Iran,where censorship isprevalent,but most literature on the subjecthas struggled to grasp what this newphenomenon actually means.In what waysdoes the Internet function differently fromprint culture? Will the Iranian blogospherecreate a culture of dissidence,which mayeventually overpower the Islamist regime? Inthis ground-breaking work,the authors givea flavour of contemporary Internet culturein Iran,and analyse how this new form of communication is affecting the social andpolitical life of the country.
Blogistan
offers anew reading of Iranian politics,and a newconceptual framework for understanding thepolitics of the Internet,with majorimplications for China,the wider Middle Eastand beyond.

SHOCKED AND AWED
How the War onTerror and Jihad havechanged the EnglishLanguage
Fred Halliday,
LSE
Far more than just a military conflict,the‘War on Terror’ has been a struggle overvalues and meanings,a desperate contest forhearts and minds in which language hasbecome the battlefield.In this highly originalbook,Fred Halliday takes us on a tour of thisnew war-zone,its artillery and trenches,minefields and booby-traps.Drawing onyears of painstaking collation,Halliday showshow the ‘War on Terror’ has brought us not just new words,such as ‘Gitmo’,and newimports,such as ‘jihad’,but also new ways of using existing language,such as‘extraordinary rendition’.Scanning the pock-marked semantic landscape of the post-9/11world,he uncovers hidden twists of phrasingand word associations,which in themselvestell a story about the violent clash of ideologies that has marked the opening of the 21st century.Part indispensablereference,part polemic,part entertainingsnapshot of our times,
Shocked and Awed 
is abristling arsenal of the 21st century’s mostpotent weapons:words.

IN THE LION’S DEN
Inside America’s ColdWar with Asad’sSyria
Andrew Tabler,
Washington Institute forNear East Policy’
Vast,inscrutable,unpredictable,Syria hastraditionally been the toughest nut to crack in the Middle East peace process.After 9/11and Damascus’ opposition to the War inIraq,Washington decided it had had enough,and began a quiet campaign against Asad’sregime.There were no Western journalistsor academics based in Damascus during thisperiod – except for Andrew Tabler.
In theLion’s Den
tells the unique story of the warno one knew about as seen from the inside.As Tabler negotiates his way through thelabyrinth of Syrian politics,where nothing isas it seems,and no one says what theymean,we learn how the country works,andhow the signature events in Washington’sattempts to create a ‘New Middle East’ – sanctions,meetings with opposition groups,support for Israel’s 2006 bombing campaignin Lebanon – played out in the corridors of power in Damascus.Part exposé,part vividnarrative account,
In the Lion’s Den
is anessential introduction to modern Syria.

OPIUM
Uncovering thePolitics of the Poppy 
Pierre-Arnaud Chouvy,
CNRS
The literary and exotic associations of opium have long been known but the storyof this powerful narcotic has a darker side,which Pierre-Arnaud Chouvy explores inthis impressive new book.He reveals thechanging fortunes of the modern-day tradein illicit opium,especially in the remote andinaccessible regions of Asia known as theGolden Triangle and Golden Crescent,themajor opium-producing areas of the worldtoday.He reveals how,when and why illicitopium production emerged,what sustains it,its links with global terrorism and conflict,poverty and corruption,and why a centuryof global measures has failed to eradicate it.The result is a powerful insight into thecomplexities and difficulties of the politics of the poppy in Asia and the world today.
