As evidenced by the current debates around Brexit, the politics of today can often appear impersonal and isolating. In stark opposition to this, Cambridge Scholars, is proud to announce the publication of two sterling books that approach the modern political situation through the prism of compassion. Both authors draw on a wealth of experience in their respective fields.
A countermeasure to some of the immaturity displayed by our ‘right honourable’ members over the long durée of Brexit, stands The Mature Corporation: A Model of Responsible Capitalism, co-authored by Paul Kearns and Stuart Woollard (founding members of The Maturity Institute and experts in the world of business). Throughout modernity, capitalism has been maintained as the lesser of two evils: a system that, whilst heavily flawed, works on a pragmatic basis. Whilst ethical capitalism may seem an oxymoron to many, Paul and Stuart outline how this could be achieved. Dr Joe Zammit-Lucia summarises it best: ‘Rather than merely putting sticking plasters on to a broken construct…they focus on practicable ways to achieve system change’.
Dispatches from the Frontlines of Humanity: A Book of Reportage, on the other hand, takes a wide angle shot across the defining political and social issues of the modern era through the medium of reportage. In an era of ‘fake news’ and armchair journalism, Boštjan Videmšek (one of the leading journalists and war-correspondents of this generation and a playwright to boot!) pays homage to the grassroots of investigative journalism. It is, according to Zala Volcic (Monash University, Australia), ‘a bloody valentine to the golden era of the foreign correspondent’ and ‘an absolute gem – hopefully not a hidden one’ in the words of Slavoj Žižek. At the heart of this book, most importantly, is humanity; it never loses sight of the people involved.
