Hoa Lo/Hanoi Hilton Stories Commemorative Edition (Southeast Asia Studies Monograph, 57)
Nguyen Chi Thien

Yale University Southeast Asia Studies, 2008

The Hoa Lo/Hanoi Hilton Stores by the Vietnamese dissident poet Nguyen Chi Thien are written from his experience at the Hanoi Central Prison -- the infamous Hanoi Hilton -- where he spent six of a total of twenty-seven years in the Vietnamese gulag for the offense of writing poetry against the Communist regime.

Domination and the Arts of Resistance: Hidden Transcripts
Professor James C. Scott

Yale University Press, 1990

Confrontations between the powerless and the powerful are laden with deception - the powerless feign deference and the powerful subtly assert their mastery. Peasants, serfs, untouchables, slaves, labourers, and prisoners are not free to speak their minds in the presence of power. These subordinate groups instead create a secret discourse that represents a critique of power spoken behind the backs of the dominant. At the same time, the powerful ...

Professor James C. Scott

Yale University Press, 1998

Compulsory "ujamaa" villages in Tanzania, collectivization in Russia, Le Corbusier's urban planning theory realized in Brasilia, the Great Leap Forward in China, agricultural "modernization" in the Tropics - the 20th century has been racked by grand utopian schemes that have inadvertently brought death and disruption to millions.

Primate Psychology

Harvard University Press, 2003

In more ways than we may sometimes care to acknowledge, the human being is just another primate--it is certainly only very rarely that researchers into cognition, emotion, personality, and behavior in our species and in other primates come together to compare notes and share insights. This book, one of the few comprehensive attempts at integrating behavioral research into human and nonhuman primates, does precisely that--and in doing so, offers ...
