Anarchist Cybernetics - Control and Communication in Radical Politics (Paperback): Thomas Swann Anarchist Cybernetics - Control and Communication in Radical Politics (Paperback)
Thomas Swann
R739 Discovery Miles 7 390 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

From Occupy, to the Indignados and the Arab Spring, the uprisings that marked the last decade ignited a re-emergence of participatory democracy as a political ideal within organizations. This pioneering book introduces cybernetic thinking to politics and organizational studies to explore the continuing development of this radical idea. With a focus on communication and how alternative social media platforms present new challenges and opportunities for radical organising, it sheds new light on the concepts of self-organization, consensus decision making, individual autonomy and collective identity. Revolutionising the way in which anarchist activists and theorists think about organizations, this unprecedented investigation makes a major contribution to the larger discussion of direct democracy.

R945 Discovery Miles 9 450 Ships in 10 - 20 working days

You might think that anarchism and management are opposed, but this book shows how engaging with the long history of anarchist ideas allows us to understand the problems of contemporary organizing much more clearly. Anarchism is a theory of organizing, and in times when global capitalism is in question, we need new ideas more than ever. The reader of this book will learn how anarchist ideas are relevant to today's management problems. In a series of student-friendly short chapters on contemporary topics, the authors challenge the common sense that has allowed particular forms of organization and market to become globally dominant. Do we always need leaders? Is technological change always a good thing? Are markets the best way to arrange forms of exchange? This challenging book is essential for anyone who wants to understand what is wrong with business school theory and what we might do about it. For students and teachers of management, the standard textbook reproduces the dominant ideas about the way that business should be done. This book turns those ideas on their head, asking awkward questions about authority, technology and markets and demanding that its readers think hard about whether they want to reproduce those ideas too. Students of management, like everyone else, know that the current global system is broken but they don't know what they can do about it. This unique book uses 200 years of anarchist ideas to give readers a clear guide for building the organizations and businesses of the future and places choice and responsibility at the centre of making a new world for people and the planet.

The life story told here is interwoven with the political turmoil and human uprooting of the 20th century. A childhood in German-occupied Hungary, with its systematic persecution of the Jews, gives way to youth and young adulthood caught within the straightjacket of a socialist society. Brought up in a devout, strictly observant Jewish family, Andor Izsak experiences the call of music as the constant guiding-light of his life. Faith and music together lead him to rediscover the great tradition of 19th century synagogue music, and he makes it his mission to restore this music, and with it the organ in all its incomparable resonance, to its former place in Jewish worship. In Hanover, Germany, he finally comes close to his goal. These memoirs touch us with joy and suffering. Related consistently from the point of view of their subject, they are expressed in a captivatingly succinct, frequently humorous style.
