            The Right to Sex: The Sunday Times Bestseller

            We still do not know how to talk about sex. The current debate about sexual entitlement, objectification, rape culture or pornography fixates on the idea of consent as an objective frame through which to view our sexual encounters. Yet stripped of morality and ethics, consent is ...a blunt tool, of limited use when contemplating one of the oldest and most important problems: the shape and meaning of sex. What is the meaning of sex in a culture where online pornography shapes the sexual psyches of almost all young people? How do we address new questions about sexual entitlement, from incels to the politics of desire? How do we deny that sex is a commodity to be evenly distributed, while simultaneously insisting women have the right to sell it? Searching, trenchant and extraordinarily original, The Right to Sex is a landmark dismantling of the politics and ethics of sex in this world, animated by the hope of a different one.

            The Genetic Lottery: Why DNA Matters for Social Equality

            The Genetic Lottery: Why DNA Matters for Social Equality (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Harden, Kathryn Paige

            A provocative case for how the science of genetics can help create a more just society In recent years, scientists like Kathryn Paige Harden have shown that DNA makes us different in ways that matter for our health, educational success, and economic prosperity. The Genetic Lotter...y dismantles dangerous ideas about racial superiority and challenges us to grapple with what equality really means in a world where people are born different. Weaving together personal stories with the latest findings in genetics, Harden shows why our refusal to recognize the power of DNA perpetuates the myth of meritocracy, and argues that we must acknowledge the role of genetic luck if we are ever to create a fair society. Reclaiming genetic science from the legacy of eugenics, this groundbreaking book offers a bold new vision of society where everyone thrives, regardless of how one fares in the genetic lottery.

            A must read. -Margaret Atwood A vital, necessary playbook for navigating and defending free speech today by the CEO of PEN America, Dare To Speak provides a pathway for promoting free expression while also cultivating a more inclusive public culture. Online trolls and fascist cha...t groups. Controversies over campus lectures. Cancel culture versus censorship. The daily hazards and debates surrounding free speech dominate headlines and fuel social media storms. In an era where one tweet can launch-or end-your career, and where free speech is often invoked as a principle but rarely understood, learning to maneuver the fast-changing, treacherous landscape of public discourse has never been more urgent. In Dare To Speak, Suzanne Nossel, a leading voice in support of free expression, delivers a vital, necessary guide to maintaining democratic debate that is open, free-wheeling but at the same time respectful of the rich diversity of backgrounds and opinions in a changing country. Centered on practical principles, Nossel's primer equips readers with the tools needed to speak one's mind in today's diverse, digitized, and highly-divided society without resorting to curbs on free expression. At a time when free speech is often pitted against other progressive axioms-namely diversity and equality-Dare To Speak presents a clear-eyed argument that the drive to create a more inclusive society need not, and must not, compromise robust protections for free speech. Nossel provides concrete guidance on how to reconcile these two sets of core values within universities, on social media, and in daily life. She advises readers how to: Use language conscientiously without self-censoring ideas; Defend the right to express unpopular views; And protest without silencing speech. Nossel warns against the increasingly fashionable embrace of expanded government and corporate controls over speech, warning that such strictures can reinforce the marginalization of lesser-heard voices. She argues th
