    Indonesia Menghadapi Perubahan Iklim; Vol 3: Perubahan Iklim: Krisis Sosial-Ekologis Dan Keadilan Iklim (Indonesia Facing Climate Change; Vol 3: Climate Change: Socio-Ecological Crisis and Climate Justice
    Reuter, T ; Nurbaya, S ; Masripatin, N ; Adiwibowo, S ; Sugandi, Y (Penerbit Buku Kompas/ Ministry of Environment and Forestry, 2019)
    Tampak jelas bahwa perubahan iklim merupakan tantangan global paling besar, paling urgen, multi-dimensi dan kompleks sehingga menuntut perubahan sosial yang radikal dan sistemik untuk mengatasinya. Sepanjang sejarah manusia modern di bumi belum pernah ada risiko dan ancaman yang begitu besar terhadap eksistensi, keberlanjutan dan peradaban manusia di bumi seperti sekarang ini. Seluruh cara hidup, pola pikir, etika, sikap dan perilaku kita terhadap alam; tindakan ekonomi seharihari hingga model pembangunan ekonomi yang kita gunakan, dan bahkan konsep kita tentang kesehatan dan kemajuan, perlu diperiksa ulang dari akar sampai ujung daun. Apabila kita tidak melakukan transformasi besar-besaran, maka gaya hidup yang berorientasi pada konsumsi, mekanistik, dan perusakan lingkungan hidup (ecocidal) yang diadopsi manusia atas nama modernitas dan kemajuan akan menghancurkan bumi dan penghuninya dalam waktu yang tidak lama lagi.

    Indonesia Menghadapi Perubahan Iklim; Vol 2: Pembangunan Dan Emisi Gas Rumah Kaca Iklim (Indonesia Facing Climate Change; Vol 2: Development and Greenhouse Gas Emissions)
    Reuter, T ; Nurbaya, S ; Masripatin, N ; Reuter, T ; Adiwibowo, S ; Sugandi, Y (Penerbit Buku Kompas/ Ministry of Environment and Forestry, 2019)
    Planet bumi yang kita huni sekarang ini merupakan produk evolusi geologi yang membentang selama 4.500 juta tahun. Bumi baru dapat dihuni oleh makhluk hominid (bertulang punggung), mamalia, tumbuhan, dan hewan pada dua juta tahun lalu. Melalui ilmu biologi molekuler terungkap kemudian bahwa nenek moyang manusia (genus Homo) dengan penanda genetik (genetic marker) yang identik dengan manusia modern, telah hidup sejak 200.000 tahun silam. Namun hanya dalam 200 tahun terakhir—terhitung sejak Revolusi Industri—seluruh tatanan biosfer dan lansekap bumi manusia modern berubah drastis. Campur tangan manusia atau kekuatan antropogenik (anthropogenic forces) telah menggantikan kekuatan geologi (geological forces) yang telah berlangsung ribuan dan bahkan jutaan tahun sebelumnya. Meningkatnya temperatur global, kenaikan permukaan air laut, hilangnya keanekaragaman hayati, perairan laut dan sungai yang semakin tercemar, serta turunnya kelimpahan populasi spesies di darat dan di laut, menunjukkan hal ini.

    Indonesia Menghadapi Perubahan Iklim; Vol 1: Urgensi, Politik & Tata Kelola Perubahan Iklim (Indonesia Facing Climate Change; Vol 1: Urgency, Policy and Climate Change Governance)
    Reuter, T ; Nurbaya, S ; Masripatin, N ; Adiwibowo, S ; Sugandi, Y ; Reuter, T (Penerbit Buku Kompas/ Ministry of Environment and Forestry, 2019)
    Sebagai anggota United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), Indonesia mengikuti Conference of the Parties (COP) untuk pertama kalinya pada Konperensi ke-2 (1996), di Geneva, Switzerland. Saat itu wakil Indonesia yang tercantum secara resmi dalam Provisional List of Participants yang diterbitkan oleh UNFCCC (tanggal 5 Juni 1996), hanya seorang saja, yakni (alm) Prof. Manuel B. De Rozari, seorang akademisi dari IPB. Sejak COP ke-3 di Jepang di saat mana lahir Protokol Kyoto, peran Indonesia berangsur meningkat, sehingga tatkala dilaksanakan COP ke-24 (2019) di Katowice, Polandia, delegasi Indonesia jumlahnya mencapai 189 orang. Mereka mewakili berbagai Kementerian/Lembaga dan Pemerintah Daerah, LSM, asosiasi, pengusaha; serta termasuk diantaranya Menko Maritim, Menteri Lingkungan Hidup dan Kehutanan, Menteri Kelautan dan Perikanan, dan Menteri Perencanaan Pembangunan Nasional/ Kepala BAPPENAS. Tidak hanya itu, Indonesia bahkan pernah menggoreskan prestasi bersejarah karena berhasil mendorong para pihak menyepakati Bali Road Map dalam COP ke-13 di Bali pada Tahun 2007.

    Rumah Leluhur Kami: Kelebihdahuluan dan Dualisme dalam Masyarakat Bali Dataran Tinggi
    Reuter, T (Yayasan Obor, 2018)
    The 'Mountain Balinese' (Bali Aga) are an indigenous ethnic group whose principle homeland is the central highland region of Bali, Indonesia. While this small island has been the site of countless anthropological and historical studies and is renowned as a major destination for international tourism, foreign visitors have rarely caught more than a tantalising glimpse of the ancient culture and unique society of its mountain people. The following ethnographic account aspires to close this significant gap in our understanding of Balinese culture. In the course of exploring the thought and society of the Bali Aga, however, this book strives to advance also the comparative study of numerous other societies whose populations, like the Balinese, are speakers of Austronesian languages.

    Social Mobilisation in Post-Industrial China: The Case of Rural Urbanisation
    Gao, J ; Su, Y (Edward Elgar Publishing, 2019-01-25)
    In recent years China has experienced intense economic development. Previously a rapidly urbanising industrial economy, the country has become a post-industrial economy with a service sector that accounts for almost half the nation’s GDP. This transformation has created many socio-political changes, but key among them is social mobilisation. This book provides a full and systematic analysis of social mobilisation in China, and how its use as part of state capacity has evolved.

    Bodies and Suffering Emotions and Relations of Care
    Dragojlovic, A ; Broom, A (Routledge, 2018)
    This book is a critical response to a range of problems - some theoretical, others empirical - that shape questions surrounding the lived experience of suffering. It explores how moral and ethical questions of personal suffering are experienced, contested, negotiated and institutionalised. Bodies and Suffering investigates the moral labour and significance invested in actions to care for others, or in failing to do so. It also explores circumstances - personal, political and social - under which that which is perceived as non-moral becomes moral. Drawing on case studies and empirical research, Bodies and Suffering examines the idea of the suffering body across different cultures and contexts and the experience and treatment of these suffering bodies. The book draws on theories of affect, embodiment, the phenomenology of illness and moralities of care, to produce a nuanced understanding of suffering as being located across the assumed borders of time, space, bodies, persons and things. Suitable for bioethicists, medical anthropologists, health sociologists and body studies scholars, Bodies and Suffering will also be of use on health science courses as essential reading on suffering bodies, mental health and morality and ethics issues.
