The Social Importance of Self-Esteem

Product : The Social Importance of Self-Esteem
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Is the well-being of a society dependent on the well-being of its citizenry? Does individual self-esteem play a causal role in chronic social problems such as child abuse, school drop-out rates, teenage pregnancy, alcohol and drug abuse, welfare dependency? In an attempt to answer these questions, the State of California established a task force on self-esteem and social responsibility in 1987. The aim of this body was to determine what connections might exist between these two factors and to suggest policy guidelines relating to the welfare of Californians and to the expenditure of public resources. The ten essays in this volume, prepared by faculty members of the University of California, draw on research in the social and behavioral sciences to explore these issues. They assess the substantive assertions and research findings in the field and make careful evaluations of their reliability and validity. In many cases strong connections between self-esteem and problematic behavior are established, in others the connections are weak, and in some the causal relationship is, as yet, imperfectly understood. One of the conclusions of the book is that research on these issues needs to be improved, particularly in the areas of comparative and longitudinal studies. Guidelines for future research are suggested, and some points of policy direction are elaborated. These essays may indeed promote additional research, for the premise that social stability and welfare are largely dependent on the psychological state of a people poses a challenging and provocative counter-emphasis to the assumption that social institutions are the primary determinants of individual welfare.

American Homo

Product : American Homo
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Jeffrey Escoffier traces the emergence of a gay and lesbian political identity over the last four decades in this wide-ranging collection of his most influential essays. Situating the development of gay and lesbian communities in a broad sweep of recent American history, Escoffier examines how an urban subculture created by stigmatized and invisible men and women evolved into a vital public community with an activist political agenda and an influential position in contemporary American culture. Detailing what he calls the "political economy of the closet," Escoffier argues that the market process often played a crucial role (for better or for worse) in the emergence of gay and lesbian communities, and conversely, that these new communities have significantly impacted the American marketplace. From the development of a camp sensibility in popular culture--inspired by the erotic exhibitionism of drag queens--to the public reformation of safer-sex guidelines, Escoffier demonstrates how the gay movement has gradually acquired both social authority and recognition as a booming market. Throughout the ongoing struggle for legitimacy, gays and lesbians have had to negotiate the historical tension between the homoeroticism that courses through American culture and periodic outbreaks of homophobic paranoia. Escoffier follows the lesbian and gay movement across the contested terrain of American political life between the poles of multiculturalism and the religious right, to reveal how sexual minorities constitute a challenge to American society even as they are thoroughly integrated as citizens and kin. From McCarthy-era witchhunts to the activism of Queer Nation, Escoffier vividly describes the characteristic American homosexual journey through the tangled political web of authenticity, identity, and community.

Bookends: Two Women, One Enduring Friendship

Product : Bookends: Two Women, One Enduring Friendship
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The rare book dealers who delighted readers with the history of their bookselling days in "Old Books, Rare Friends" now offer the other side of their story -- an intimate look at the joys of a relationship that has lasted more than half a century. When their friendship and business partnership began in the 1940s, Leona Rostenberg and Madeleine Stern were pioneers in a man's world. Now approaching their nineties, the duo, who -- among their many discoveries -- unearthed Louisa May Alcott's pseudonymous blood-and-thunder stories, remains a vibrant institution in the rare book trade, even as the Internet changes their field -- and their community -- forever. After publishing "Old Books, Rare Friends," Rostenberg and Stern received a flood of fan mail asking about their personal lives, and they have responded with poignant honesty and the warmth for which they are famous, as they reflect on their lives and their remarkable partnership. "Bookends" recounts their fascinating histories: family backgrounds, business adventures, the men they did not marry, and their approach to the bittersweet trials of aging. More than just a dual memoir, "Bookends" is also a chronicle of the cultural changes of twentieth-century American life and a loving farewell to the golden age of book collecting. Filled with wisdom and humor, this volume is a tribute to Rostenberg and Stern's passion for the written word -- and for life itself. Catching us off guard with their candor, they offer their insights regarding their business, their way of life, and their worldview. Above all, they present the story of a special relationship. At a time when people find it increasingly difficult to connect, here wehave the seamless story of a shared life. It is the unique product of an earlier time, yet it is a timeless reflection on the very nature of friendship. Though their fantastic partnership is un-reproducible, the ideal they have established, for the integration of one life so completely with another, contains lessons for all of us. Without husband or children they created a loving home when this was uncharted territory for women. They nurtured a business and life partnership that has lasted more than half a century and has only gotten stronger with time. When the passing years began to claim one's hearing and the other's sight, they became each other's eyes and ears. A meditation on aging and togetherness, this book is also the narrative of two pioneering single, Jewish women making their way in tandem through a world largely organized to keep them in their place. It is a gentle, wise story, told in their inimitable style, sparse, unadorned, and honest. Their affirmations supersede their uncertainties. As they write, "Bookends support books and come in pairs...If the word encapsulates our past, it looks also to the future, and to the books -- lived together, written together -- that will follow." They confront the challe

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From famous writers and personalities who call the city home, whether by birth or simply love, these pieces written in the wake of Hurricane Katrina serve as a timeless tribute to New Orleans. Sentimental, joyful, and witty, these essays by celebrated writers, entertainers, chefs, and fans honor the life of one of America's most beloved cities. Paul Prudhomme writes about the emotional highs New Orleans inspires, Wynton Marsalis exalts his native city as soul model for the nation, while Walter Isaacson shares his vision for preserving his hometown's "pentimento" magic. Stewart O'Nan recalls the fantasy haze that enshrouded his first trip to the Big Easy when he was thirty and bowed to Richard Ford to receive his first literary prize. Poppy Z. Brite thanks New Orleans for helping her discover the simple pleasure of Audubon Park's egrets, and Elizabeth Dewberry explores what it means to work Bourbon Street as a stripper. "My New Orleans" captures the spirit of the city that was -- and that will be again.

Description : Over the years, Scott Bradfield has been recognized by his peers in the literary world as a star. Now, with Good Girl Wants It Bad, the best-kept secret in contemporary fiction is poised to reach his widest audience yet. Weirdly endearing Delilah Riordan (known to those who love and loathe her simply as Lah) has been charged with numerous counts of murder and torture by the states of Connecticut, California, New York, Idaho, and Texas, not to mention several European countries she'd rather not go into right now. Currently residing at the West Texas Women's Penitentiary, Lah is doing everything she can to prove herself the innocent and good woman she knows herself to be. She dutifully attends Rehab Chat with Dr. Reginald and Confrontational Analysis with Dr. Alexander. In her spare time she keeps a diary and replies to correspondence from her expanding legion of admirers while pining for her long-lost daughter and awaiting salvation-however bloody-at the hands of her beautiful (and perhaps imaginary) boyfriend, Manuel. With scathing wit and mordant humor, this wickedly funny novel is a fast-paced tale of how far self-help can take you on Death Row. Good Girl Wants It Bad is good disturbing fun.

Women and Work: A Reader

Product : Women and Work: A Reader
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Women and Work: A Reader is the first book to offer a comprehensive global exploration of the challenges and career blocks that today's women face in the workplace. Despite benefiting from the struggles of previous generations, working women today still face a dismaying gantlet of sexual discrimination. This encyclopedic collection of 150 original articles by top scholars takes an interdisciplinary look at the issues faced by women of all ages, races, ethnic backgrounds, and nationalities in a spectrum of diverse occupations, from doctors to journalists, from nuns to soldiers. A variety of perspectives are used to investigate women's work experience at individual, organizational, and societal levels. Some of the essays focus on how women fare in a variety of occupations, summarizing women's representation in different jobs and discussing the unique problems they face. Others examine the influences of religious and educational institutions on women's career choices. Women and Work also reviews the history of protective legislation. The contributors consider current research on women's work interests, commitment, and satisfaction and examine sexual discrimination, harassment, and coercion, as well as gender bias in job evaluations and personnel decisions. They also explore various strategies for reducing or eliminating discrimination, harassment, and wage discrimination. Issues surrounding the work/family intersection are addressed, including when to have children, the difficulties that arise from the competing demands of work and child care, the consequences for women's careers, research examining the effects of mothers' employment on children's development, and issues surroundingeldercare. The volume also surveys the status of women in an international framework, analyzing women and work in selected countries, and is arranged to reflect the varying levels of development. Women and Work is a valuable reference book, providing a thoughtful overview of the issues facing working women. Paula J. Dubeck is an associate professor and head of the sociology department at the University of Cincinnati. Kathryn Borman is a professor of education and anthropology at the University of South Florida.

Brain Gain: Rethinking U.S. Immigration Policy

Product : Brain Gain: Rethinking U.S. Immigration Policy
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Many of America's greatest artists, scientists, investors, educators, and entrepreneurs have come from abroad. Rather than suffering from the "brain drain" of talented and educated individuals emigrating, the United States has benefited greatly over the years from the "brain gain" of immigration. These gifted immigrants have engineered advances in energy, information technology, international commerce, sports, arts, and culture. To stay competitive, the United States must institute more of an open-door policy to attract unique talents from other nations. Yet Americans resist such a policy despite their own immigrant histories and the substantial social, economic, intellectual, and cultural benefits of welcoming newcomers. Why? In "Brain Gain," Darrell West asserts that perception or "vision" is one reason reform in immigration policy is so politically difficult. Public discourse tends to emphasize the perceived negatives. Fear too often trumps optimism and reason. And democracy is messy, with policy principles that are often difficult to reconcile. The seeming irrationality of U.S. immigration policy arises from a variety of thorny and interrelated factors: particularistic politics and fragmented institutions, public concern regarding education and employment, anger over taxes and social services, and ambivalence about national identity, culture, and language. Add to that stew a myopic (or worse) press, persistent fears of terrorism, and the difficulties of implementing border enforcement and legal justice. West prescribes a series of reforms that will put America on a better course and enhance its long-term social and economic prosperity. Reconceptualizing immigration as a way to enhance innovation and competitiveness, the author notes, will help us find the next Sergey Brin, the next Andrew Grove, or even the next Albert Einstein.

Women's Conflicts about Eating and Sexuality

Product : Women's Conflicts about Eating and Sexuality
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Women's Conflicts About Eating and Sexuality explores the strong relationships food and sex have represented to women over the years. No other book has spelled out so clearly the parallels between sex and eating nor integrated the relationship of these to women's basic need to be loved. Today's dilemma for women--be fat or go hungry--and the endless variations and unsatisfying solutions to this problem have contributed to the incidence of anorexia, bulimia, and obesity. The pursuit of slimness, the obsession with having the perfect body, excessive aerobicizing, and diet books ad nauseam are all part of this phenomenon. Authors in Women's Conflicts About Eating and Sexuality skillfully discuss the parallel between women's obsession with sex and romance in the fifties and their obsession with food today. An important book for all women, it sheds light on the complex issues facing women and devotes special attention to the career woman and the additional pressures to be slim and stay slim. The woman who reads this potentially life-changing book can examine, question, and change her behavior, using the specific step-by-step program aid included in the book. This book is for every woman who has ever worried about being too fat or too sexual. Women's Conflicts About Eating and Sexuality will appeal to women of all ages--young women and their mothers will be fascinated by the parallels between sexual obsessions of thirty years ago and the eating obsessions of today. This healing book will particularly attract single career women for whom sex and relationships are fraught with complications. Counselors and therapists will find this book an excellent resource in their work with helping women. It is also a good auxiliary text for courses in Women's Studies focusing on psychology and history of women and the sociology of women and eating disorders.

In a society where the very definition of manhood is called into question, rugged individualism leads men to dangerous isolation. Warriors for Christ seldom win their battles single-handedly: they need fellow soldiers to march and fight with them. Men become Godly husbands and fathers by walking with other men who share the same standards. This book encourages them to seek out brothers in Christ for direction and encouragement and to do together what no one could do alone.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : A coming of old-age story. In nursing homes across the country, members of the Greatest Generation are living out their last days. No matter how exciting or mundane their lives, theyare now occupying a hospital-style roomaa public space where you canat lock your door and strangers come and go. Life is a succession of pokes and prods, medications, TV, bingo, and, possibly, talking to Ira Rosofsky. "Nasty, Brutish, and Long" is a candid, humane, and improbably humorous look at the world of eldercare. With a compassionate eye but mordant wit, Rosofsky, a psychologist charged with gauging the mental health of his elders, reveals a culture based not in the empathy of caretaking, but rather in the coolly detached bureaucracy of Medicare and Medicaid. A portrayal of what is increasingly becoming the last slice of life for many, "Nasty, Brutish, and Long" is also a baby boomeras poignant meditation on mortality, a reflection on his caregiving for his parentsa final days, and an examination of the choices that we, as a society, have made about healthcare for the elderly who are no longer of sound mind and body.

Madeline is aided in her efforts by a colorful assemblage of friends, relatives, and new acquaintances, each one representing a separate strand of the patchwork mosaic city politicians like to brag about. The result is an unforgettable narrative that relates the causes and consequences of a vicious crime to the wider relationships that connect and divide us all.

Billionaires' Ball: Gluttony and Hubris in an Age of Epic Inequality

Product : Billionaires' Ball: Gluttony and Hubris in an Age of Epic Inequality
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The concentration of wealth today in such a small number of hands inevitably created a dynamic that led to freewheeling financial speculation--a dynamic that produced similarly disastrous results in the last great age of inequality, in the 1920s. Such concentrated economic power reverberates throughout society, threatening the quality of life and the very functioning of democracy. As McQuaig and Brooks illustrate, it's no accident that the United States claims the most billionaires but suffers from among the highest rates of infant mortality and crime, the shortest life expectancy, and the lowest rates of social mobility and electoral political participation in the developed world. In "Billionaires' Ball," McQuaig and Brooks take us back in history to the political decisions that helped birth our billionaires, then move us forward to the cutting-edge research into the dangers that concentrated wealth poses. Via vivid profiles of billionaires--ranging from philanthropic capitalists such as Bill Gates to hedge fund king John Paulson and the infamous band of Koch brothers--"Billionaires' Ball" illustrates why we hold dearly to the belief that they "earned" and "deserve" their grand fortunes, when such wealth is really a by-product of a legal and economic infrastructure that's become deeply flawed.

Product : Evel Knievel Days
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : From the critically-acclaimed author of "Red Weather" comes a heartwarming, witty story of immigration and belonging, false starts and new beginnings, and finding out what home truly means Khosi Saqr has always felt a bit out of place in Butte, Montana, hometown of motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel. Half-Egyptian, full of nervous habits, raised by a single mother, owner of a name that no one can pronounce -- Khosi has never quite managed to fit in. But when a mysterious stranger arrives in town (and Khosi's longtime love uses Butte's annual festival, Evel Knievel Days, as a time to announce her impending marriage to someone else), Khosi takes his first daredevil like risk, and travels to Egypt to find his father -- and a connection to his heritage. What he discovers, in Cairo, is much more startling than he'd imagined it could be. The city is a thrilling mix of contradictions -- and locating his father turns out to be the easy part. Through mistaken identity, delicious food, and near tragedy, Khosi and his parents rediscover what it means to be connected to each other, to a family, and to a culture. The timely story of a young man searching for his roots, and along the way finding his identity, "Evel Knievel Days" is Khosi's charming and funny journey to learn where he came from, and who he is. "A funny, heart-warming, compulsively readable novel about the unbreakable bonds of family -- and baklava." --Garth Stein, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Art of Racing in the Rain"

He tries to do what he can to fit in--making photocopies of himself, or attempting to play games with the other kids--though his efforts are usually met with unfortunate results. But when it comes time for the schoolwide Twindividuation competition, a series of events meant to encourage individuality, Lysander quickly realizes that being the only"""only child" does have its advantages--and that being unique isn't such a bad thing after all.

Mo Said She Was Quirky

Product : Mo Said She Was Quirky
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : James Kelman, the Man Booker Prize-winning author of "How Late It Was, How Late," tells the story of Helen--a sister, a mother, a daughter--a very ordinary young woman. Her boyfriend said she was quirky but she is much more than that. Trust, love, relationships; parents, children, lovers; death, wealth, home: these are the ordinary parts of the everyday that become extraordinary when you think of them as Helen does, each waking hour. "Mo Said She Was Quirky" begins on Helen's way home from work, with the strangest of moments when a skinny, down-at-heel man crosses the road in front of her and appears to be her lost brother. What follows is an inspired and absorbing story of twenty-four hours in the life of a young woman.

The Minimum Means of Reprisal: China's Search for Security in the Nuclear Age

Product : The Minimum Means of Reprisal: China's Search for Security in the Nuclear Age
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Among the five nations authorized under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty to possess nuclear weapons, China has the smallest nuclear force and maintains the most restrained nuclear posture. In "The Minimum Means of Reprisal, " Jeffrey Lewis examines patterns in Chinese defense investments, strategic force deployments, and arms control behavior to develop an alternative assessment of China's nuclear forces. "The Minimum Means of Reprisal" finds that China's nuclear deployment and arms control patterns stem from the belief that deterrence is relatively unaffected by changes in the size, configuration, and readiness of nuclear forces. As a result, Lewis argues, Chinese policy has tended to sacrifice offensive capability in favor of greater political control and lower economic costs. The future of cooperative security arrangements in space will depend largely on the U.S.-Chinese relationship. Lewis warns that changes in U.S. defense strategy, including the development of new strategic forces and the weaponization of space, will prevent the United States from reassuring China in the event that its leaders begin to lose confidence in their restrained deterrent. The result may further damage the already weakened arms control regime and increase the threat to the United States and the world. Lewis provides policy guidance for those interested in the U.S.-Chinese security relationship and in global security arrangements more generally.

Body Language in Literature

Product : Body Language in Literature
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : The Tilt of a Head, the Quirk of an Eyebrow, or a Shift in Position can eloquently portray a wide range of emotions without a single word being spoken. Body language is a critical component of everyday communication, yet the importance of body language or non-verbal communication in such a verbal medium as literature has not been fully studied. In Body Language in Literature, Barbara Korte has produced an important interdisciplinary study by establishing a general theory that accounts for the varieties of body language encountered in literary narrative. The theory is complemented by a historical survey of the phenomenon. Focusing on major works of literature, including novels and stories by Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Margaret Atwood, Margaret Laurence, and J.D. Salinger, Korte shows body language to be a vital and complex method of communication in literature.

A Thoroughly Canadian General: A Biography of General H.D.G. Crerar

Product : A Thoroughly Canadian General: A Biography of General H.D.G. Crerar
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : General H.D.G. 'Harry' Crerar (1888-1965) was involved in or directly responsible for many of the defining moments of Canadian military history in the twentieth century. In the First World War, Crerar was nearly killed at the second battle of Ypres, was a gunner who helped to secure victory at Vimy Ridge, and was a senior staff officer during the pivotal battles of the last Hundred Days. During the Second World War, he occupied and often defined the Canadian army's senior staff and operational appointments, including his tenure as commander of First Canadian Army through the northwest European campaign. Despite his pivotal role in shaping the Canadian army, however, General Crerar has been long overlooked as a subject of biography. In "A Thoroughly Canadian General," Paul Douglas Dickson examines the man and his controversial place in Canadian military history, arguing that Crerar was a nationalist who saw the army as an instrument to promote Canadian identity and civic responsibility. From his days as a student at the Royal Military College in Kingston, to his role as primary architect of First Canadian Army, the career of General H.D.G. Crerar is thoroughly examined with a view to considering and reinforcing his place in the history of Canada and its armed forces.

The Persian Sphinx: Amir Abbas Hoveyda and the Riddle of the Iranian Revolution

Product : The Persian Sphinx: Amir Abbas Hoveyda and the Riddle of the Iranian Revolution
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Amir Abbas Hoveyda was a central figure in the historic struggle between modernity and tradition in Iran-a struggle pitting Western cosmopolitanism against Persian isolationism, secularism against religious fundamentalism, and ultimately civil society and democracy against authoritarianism. Born in Tehran in 1919 to a family of solid middle class comforts and faded aristocratic roots, Hoveyda was an elegant, cultivated, well-read, and witty man, educated in Beirut, London, and Brussels. After entering the Iranian foreign service in 1942, he served in France, Germany, and Turkey, then returned to Iran in 1956 to join the National Iranian Oil Company. In 1965, the shah appointed him the country's prime minister. Hoveyda would serve faithfully in that post for thirteen years. Amir Abbas Hoveyda embodied the aspirations, the accomplishments and also the failures of a whole generation of Iranian technocrats-mostly Western-trained-who sought to free Iran from the travails of poverty and repression and guide it into the modern age. Hoveyda would be both a leader and a victim of that effort. In telling the story of Hoveyda's life, the author has not only laid bare the development of Iranian society during a pivotal period (1919-1978) but has also unearthed important new material on U.S.-Iranian relations. From 1957 onward, Amir Abbas Hoveyda played critical roles in dealing with U.S. foreign policy and fundamentalist Islamic opposition in Iran. Through careful use of hitherto unexamined archival materials, unpublished letters, and personal journals, along with extensive interviews with more than a hundred of Hoveyda's relatives, friends, and foes, the author has brilliantly caught the pathos and passion of Hoveyda's life and times. The Persian Sphinx is biography at its most powerful and will reward the scholar and the general reader alike.

Telematic Embrace: Visionary Theories of Art, Technology, and Consciousness

Product : Telematic Embrace: Visionary Theories of Art, Technology, and Consciousness
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Long before e-mail and the Internet permeated society, Roy Ascott, a pioneering British artist and theorist, coined the term "telematic art" to describe the use of online computer networks as an artistic medium. In "Telematic Embrace" Edward A. Shanken gathers, for the first time, an impressive compilation of more than three decades of Ascott's philosophies on aesthetics, interactivity, and the sense of self and community in the telematic world of cyberspace. This book explores Ascott's ideas on how networked communication has shaped behavior and consciousness within and beyond the realm of what is conventionally defined as art. Telematics, a powerful marriage of computers and telecommunication, made technologies we now take for granted--such as e-mail and automated teller machines (ATMs)--part of our daily life, and made art a more interactive form of expression. Telematic art challenges traditional relationships between artist, artwork, and audience by allowing nonlocal audiences to influence the emergent qualities of the artwork, which consists of the ebb and flow of electronic information. These essays constitute a unique archaeology of ideas, tracing Ascott's meditations on the formation of consciousness through the intertwined cultural histories of art and technology from the 1960s to the present. Shanken's introduction situates Ascott's work within a history of ideas in art, technology, and philosophy. Given the increasing role of the Internet and the World Wide Web in the creation of commerce and community at the dawn of this new millennium, scholars, students, laypeople, policymakers, and artists will find this collection informative and thought-provoking.

The Meinertzhagen Mystery: The Life and Legend of a Colossal Fraud

Product : The Meinertzhagen Mystery: The Life and Legend of a Colossal Fraud
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Tall, handsome, charming Col. Richard Meinertzhagen (1878-1967) was an acclaimed British war hero, a secret agent, and a dean of international ornithology. His exploits inspired three biographies, movies have been based on his life, and a square in Jerusalem is dedicated to his memory. Meinertzhagen was trusted by Winston Churchill, David Lloyd George, Chaim Weizmann, David Ben Gurion, T. E. Lawrence, Elspeth Huxley, and a great many others.He bamboozled them all. Meinertzhagen was a fraud. Many of the adventures recorded in his celebrated diaries were imaginary, including a meeting with Hitler while he had a loaded pistol in his pocket, an attempt to rescue the Russian royal family in 1918, and a shoot-out with Arabs in Haifa when he was seventy years old. True, he was a key player in Middle Eastern events after World War I, and during the 1930s he represented Zionism's interests in negotiations with Germany. But he also set up Nazi front organizations in England, committed a half-century of major and costly scientific fraud, and -- oddly -- may have been innocent of many killings to which he confessed (e.g., the murder of his own polo groom -- a crime of which he cheerfully boasted, although the evidence suggests it never occurred at all). Further, he may have been guilty of at least one homicide of which he professed innocence. A compelling read about a flamboyant rogue, "The Meinertzhagen Mystery" shows how recorded history reflects not what happened, but what we believe happened.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : An American Western made by a Taiwanese director and filmed in Canada, "Brokeback Mountain" was a global cultural phenomenon even before it became the highest grossing gay-themed drama in film history. Few films have inspired as much passion and debate, or produced as many contradictory responses, from online homage to late-night parody. In this wide-ranging and incisive collection, writers, journalists, scholars, and ordinary viewers explore the film and Annie Proulx's original story as well as its ongoing cultural and political significance. The contributors situate "Brokeback Mountain" in relation to gay civil rights, the cinematic and literary Western, the Chinese value of forbearance, male melodrama, and urban and rural working lives across generations and genders. "The Brokeback Book" builds on earlier debates by novelist David Leavitt, critic Daniel Mendelsohn, producer James Schamus, and film reviewer Kenneth Turan with new and noteworthy interpretations of the Brokeback phenomenon, the film, and its legacy. Also appearing in print for the first time is Michael Silverblatt's interview with Annie Proulx about the story she wrote and the film it became.

John Burnett has assembled twenty seven telling extracts from the diaries and autobiographies of working people - wheelwrights and stone-masons, miners and munition workers, butlers and kitchen maids, navvies, carpenters, potters and ship assistants to list only a few. The men and women who speak in these pages concentrate on their working experiences, though they also write about their homes and their fears. They thus reveal, often unconsciously, the essence of their attitudes, values and beliefs. Burnett's broad and sympathetic introductions focus and contextualise the wealth of material. These stories provide the antithesis of great name' history, yet they constantly touch on human experiences that are timeless and universal.

Slavery and Beyond

Product : Slavery and Beyond
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : "Allen and Barbara Isaacman have told a fascinating story about the struggles for survival by a vulnerable group within the wider, unstable world of the Zambezi Valley from the mid-nineteenth century through the tightening grip of Portuguese colonialism in the 1920s. To survive, the Chikunda made and remade themselves as they traversed the big changes of the transition from precolonial to colonial political economy. This focus on Chikunda raises important questions about the strategies of other vulnerable groups. The Isaacmans have established a model for how to study the meanings and experiences of social vulnerability in Southern Africa." - Richard Roberts, Professor and Director Center for African Studies, Stanford University"This wonderful book recounts a large and important sweep of history as seen from a uniquely situated, uniquely revealing African point of view - that of the Chikunda. It is a truism that colonial rule depended on violence. Yet the Chikunda were colonial subjects who nevertheless exercised control over the means of violence. Their interests coincided neither with those of the Portuguese nor with those of other Africans. They occupied a space betwixt and between, and yet at the nexus of force that was central to the evolving colonial experience." - Steven Feierman, Professor of History and Sociology of Science University of Pennsylvania Originating as slave armies on the plantations of Portuguese East Africa, the Chikunda emerged as noted elephant hunters, daring canoe voyagers, long-distance trade porters, and state builders as slavery melted away in 19th-century East Africa. With a sensitivity for forms of cultural expression and the changing relationships between men and women, the Isaacmans lead the reader into the insecure world of East Africa as freed slaves sought new ways of supporting themselves. This monumental and sweeping work is destined to become an African History classic.

High Techne: Art and Technology from the Machine Aesthetic to the Posthuman

Product : High Techne: Art and Technology from the Machine Aesthetic to the Posthuman
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : In an age of high tech, our experience of technology has changed tremendously, yet the definition of technology has remained largely unquestioned. High Techne redresses this gap in thinking about technology, examining the shifting relations of technology, art, and culture from the beginnings of modernity to contemporary technocultures. Drawing on the Greek root of technology (techne, generally translated as "art, skill, or craft"), R. L. Rutsky challenges both the modernist notion of technology as an instrument or tool and the conventional idea of a noninstrumental aesthetics. Today, technology and aesthetics have again begun to come together: even basketball shoes are said to exhibit a "high-tech style" and the most advanced technology is called "state of the art." Rutsky charts the history and vicissitudes of this new high-tech techne up to our day -- from Fritz Lang to Octavia Butler, Thomas Edison to Japanese Anime, constructivism to cyberspace. Progressing from the major art movements of modernism to contemporary science fiction and cultural theory, Rutsky provides clear and compelling evidence of a shift in the cultural conceptions of technology and art and demonstrates the centrality of technology to modernism and postmodernism.

Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog

A Vacation with the Lord

Product : A Vacation with the Lord
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : Fr. Thomas Green, S.J., draws on his vast background as a retreat master and spiritual writer to make available to a much wider audience the retreat experience based on the classic Spiritual Exercises by St. Ignatius of Loyola. While many scholarly and professional treatments have been done on the Spiritual Exercises, for the"grassroots Catholic", St. Ignatius' classic is often too mechanical and hard to grasp. This book can be used in many ways. It can be used by retreat directors for one-to-one direction of retreatants; by retreatants making a retreat with a director; or by more experienced retreatants who wish to be "alone with the Lord". In addition, this work can be used for a closed retreat of eight days as broken down in the chapters. Or it could be used for a "retreat in daily life" where a person could devote 30 to 60 minutes a day to the themes of this book and prolong the retreat over several weeks or months.

City States in the Global Economy: Industrial Restructuring in Hong Kong and Singapore

Product : City States in the Global Economy: Industrial Restructuring in Hong Kong and Singapore
Catalog : Better World Books Product Catalog
Description : This is the first serious comparative study of two dynamic Asian city-states that are emerging as key regional--indeed global--cities. Providing both historical comparisons and analyses of contemporary issues, the authors consider the patterns, strategies, and consequences of industrial restructuring. They build their analysis around the interrelationships of four institutional spheres: the global economy, the state, the financial system, and the labor market. This leads to a unique emphasis on the distinctiveness of individual NICs, as opposed to much of the literature in the field, which tends to group these Asian dragons together as a single, undifferentiated case.The book addresses three basic sets of questions tied to industrial restructuring in Hong Kong and Singapore: First, what are the basic patterns of restructuring in the two economies? What corporate strategies have manufacturers used to restructure their operations? Are Hong Kong and Singapore diverging or utilizing the same restructuring strategies? Second, how should the process of restructuring in the two economies and the concomitant similarities or divergencies be explained? Third, what are the consequences of the restructuring process for the two economies? How are these processes shaped by the shared histories of Hong Kong and Singapore as colonial port cities, their current status as NICs "squeezed" between industrialized western societies and the Third World, and their role as important regional cities in East and Southeast Asia?
