Description : Japan is arguably the first postindustrial society to embrace the prospect of human-robot coexistence. Over the past decade, Japanese humanoid robots designed for use in homes, hospitals, offices, and schools have become celebrated in mass and social media throughout the world. In Robo sapiens japanicus, Jennifer Robertson casts a critical eye on press releases and public relations videos that misrepresent robots as being as versatile and agile as their science fiction counterparts. An ethnography and sociocultural history of governmental and academic discourse of human-robot relations in Japan, this book explores how actual robots—humanoids, androids, and animaloids—are “imagineered” in ways that reinforce the conventional sex/gender system and political-economic status quo. In addition, Robertson interrogates the notion of human exceptionalism as she considers whether “civil rights” should be granted to robots. Similarly, she juxtaposes how robots and robotic exoskeletons reinforce a conception of the “normal” body with a deconstruction of the much-invoked Theory of the Uncanny Valley.

Description : "Warfare and technology predate human history. The dynamic relationship between them is timeless, echoing through human history in patterns that link the bow and arrow with the IED (improvised explosive device), the walls of Jericho with reconnaissance satellites. This book traces those patterns, from the Scheoningen spears to cyberwarfare."--Provided by publisher.
Description : Humans presents the breadth of anthropology in a concise textbook planned for use with supplementary ethnographies. Designed for either an introductory four-field or cultural anthropology course, it covers the basic concepts of linguistics, archaeology, physical and cultural anthropology in a readable style with well-chosen illustrative examples. Instructors have found ethnographies most effective for teaching anthropological understanding; this text's brevity permits the instructor to assign several full-length case studies, without skimping the foundation for a holistic approach. The text covers the discipline and its major sub-fields, with a minimal use of technical terms. Both photo-essays drawn from the author's own fieldwork and examples taken from popular culture work to engage students, prompting them to question how it is we know what we know. A solid foundational text, Humans will suit any program.
