Aesthetic Hysteria: The Great Neurosis In Victorian Melodrama And Contemporary Fiction

Product : Aesthetic Hysteria: The Great Neurosis In Victorian Melodrama And Contemporary Fiction
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Aesthetic Hysteriais a deconstructive psychoanalytic study of hysteria, using literary texts to foreground a telling encounter between two growing discourses within English studies: that of emotion/affect and trauma studies. It brings together several academic foci - the history of medicine, aesthetic theory, speech act theory, feminism, and gender and performance studies. The study uses its theoretical and philosophical questioning of a cultural phenomenon to interrogate the politics and ends of theory, and is timely in addressing similar anxieties dominating contemporary critical and cultural theory.

British Empire, Social Integration And The History Of Economic Thought

Product : British Empire, Social Integration And The History Of Economic Thought
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Since the appearance of Adam Smith''s Wealth of nations in 1776, many British economists have reflected on the costs and benefits of the British Empire. In the last 50 years, historians have undertaken considerable research on the Empire which has produced many new insights - yet they have not given much attention to the thinking of economists in the past about the Empire. The aim of this book is to fill this gap by considering economic thinking about the Empire from the mercantile period to J M Keynes.In approaching the subject of the British Empire, this book highlights the importance of the social integration in the scheme of advancing the interest of the Empire. The book highlights a few dimensions of social integration: producing the political discussion and persuasion both in the parliament and also via the public opinion; allocating merits among the various ranks or interests; demonstrating the influential campaign which might inspire the national sentiments to unity and so forth. The volume composes of two parts; (Part 1) ''Territory, Trade and Social Integration of the Empire,'' and (Part 2) ''Negotiating the Strategy for the British Empire.''The book originated from a forum organised by the Japanese Society of History of Economic Thought. The collection brings together topics in the history of the British Empire to show the importance of economic thought to its changing nature.

Gender, Violence And Popular Culture: Telling Stories

Product : Gender, Violence And Popular Culture: Telling Stories
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book examines the intersection of gender and violence in popular culture. Drawing on the latest thinking in critical international relations, media and cultural studies and gender studies, it focuses in particular on a number of popular TV shows including Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Generation Kill, The Corner and The West Wing. The book makes a unique theoretical contribution to the ?narrative turn? in International Relations by illustrating the ways in which popular culture and global politics are intertwined and how we make sense of our worlds through these two frames. Methodologically, the book enhances discourse-theoretical analysis in IR through its incorporation of methods from narratology and film studies. The book proposes an aesthetic ethicopolitical approach to global politics which challenges us to interrogate how it becomes possible that we think what we think, it challenges the truths that we hold to be self-evident and that which we take to be common sense. It demands that we think carefully, critically, uncomfortably, about our world(s) ? even when we?re ?only? watching television.

Contemporary India and South Africa: Legacies, Identities, Dilemmas

Product : Contemporary India and South Africa: Legacies, Identities, Dilemmas
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book deals with the legacies of the Indian experiences of migration and diaspora in South Africa. It highlights the social imaginaries of the migrants and citizens as they negotiate between a reconstructed notion of ¿India¿ and their real present and future in the country of citizenship.Both South Africa and India have had a long history of group-based identity movements against exploitation around caste and race, intersecting with class, gender, language, religion and region. The combined history has allowed them to participate in novel ways in the global arena as regional powers. The book suggests that the question of identity concerns itself with exploitation and oppression of excluded groups in both countries. The authors are particularly attentive to the manner in which the two democratic states have confronted the challenges of history together with contemporary demands of inclusion and discuss the dilemmas involved in resolving them. The volume also raises questions regarding future roles, especially in the fields of education and the environment.It will be of interest to those in the fields of sociology, political science, international relations, history, migration and diaspora studies, as well as to the general reader.

Money and Banking in the UK (RLE: Banking & Finance): A History

Product : Money and Banking in the UK (RLE: Banking & Finance): A History
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Finance and Investing>Banks and Banking
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book is concerned with developments in three main areas of monetary history: domestic commercial banking; monetary policy; and the UK¿s international financial position. For ease of analysis the 160 years under study are arranged into three clear chronological divisons. Part 1 covers the years 1826-1913, a period in which the UK emerged as the world¿s leading economic power. It was in these years that an extensive and fully-operative domestic banking system was established. Part 2 covers 1914 to 1939 ¿ the years which marked a break in the traditional monetary arrangements of the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Part 3 covers 1939-1986 when the dominance of state influence within the domestic money markets was re-established by the Second World War and the acceptance by the authorities of the obligation to ¿manage¿ the economy which meant that successive postwar governments took direct responsibility for the conduct of monetary and credit policy.

Ethnography And Interpretation

Product : Ethnography And Interpretation
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book provides a benchmark treatise on the relationship between ethnography and interpretive approaches to research in the social sciences by accomplishing four specific objectives. First, it situates ethnography as a research method within a broader field of methodologies, contrasting ethnography conducted and written within an interpretive methodology against ethnography conducted and written within a positivist methodology. Second, it maps the range of approaches to ethnography within an interpretive methodology with a specific emphasis on the stances interpretive ethnographies implicitly or explicitly take on issues of truth and power. Third, it provides readers of interpretive ethnography with major evaluative criteria while simultaneously offering practitioners of interpretive ethnography guidelines for conducting and writing interpretive ethnography. And fourth, it draws on the unique strengths of interpretive ethnography to advance a series of provocations and questions about broader tendencies in mainstream social science research.In contrast to other treatments of ethnography that either ignore or conflate the relationship between ethnography as a research method and broader interpretive and/or positivist methodologies, Pachirat explicitly emphasizes the distinction between method and methodology in order to underscore the advantages of conducting ethnography within an interpretive framework. Rather than drawing inspiration primarily from abstract philosophical literature,Ethnography and Interpretationrelies throughout on discussions of actual, exemplary ethnographies in the social sciences to illustrate and animate its arguments and propositions. This concise volume will be valuable reading for teachers, students, and practitioners of ethnographic research across the social sciences.

His germinalIdeology and Curriculumwas a watershed title in critical education studies, and has remained in print since its publication in 1979. The more than two dozen books and hundreds of papers, articles, and chapters published since have likewise all contributed to a greater understanding of the relationship between and among the economy, political, and cultural power in society on the one hand and the ways in which education is thought about, organized, and evaluated on the other.In this collection, Apple brings together 13 of his key writings in one place, providing an overview not just of his own career, but of the larger development of the field. A new introduction re- examines the scope of his work and his earlier arguments, and reflects on what remains to be done for those committed to critical education.

Film History: An Introduction Through The Senses

Product : Film History: An Introduction Through The Senses
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Too often, film and the cinema have been treated primarily as a visual medium, with the consequence that spectatorship has come to be regarded as a matter of the eye alone. InFilm History: An Introduction through the Senses,Thomas Elsaesser and Michael Wedel put the other senses at the centre of the cinematic experience, charting the dynamics along which the cinema has configured, positioned, and rearticulated itself over time within the larger cultural force field of media technologies, the body, and the senses.Much likeFilm Theory: An Introduction through the Senses, each chapter in this new book begins by identifying the major terms of a particular period--including early cinema, classical cinema, modern (art) cinema, post-classical cinema, avant-garde cinema, world cinema, and digital cinema--and closely analyzing of one or more of the era''s key films. Using major twentieth century media theorists, the authors then examine the way in which media technologies have affected, altered, traversed, or perverted the body and the senses. For example, they consider:-the cinema as a site for the training of the body and the mass production of the senses-the cinema as the exploitation of the body and the commodification of the senses-the cinema as a public space to adapt the body and educate the senses to the demands of societyBy broadening our understanding of spectatorship Elsaesser and Wedel are able to provide an account of film history that more easily accomodates the new forms that the cinematic experience is taking in the 21st century. The advanced undergraduate will find this book to be an excellent introduction to both major media theorists like McLuhan and Kracauer and also film history more generally.

Product : Iron Age Lives: The Archaeology Of Britain And Ireland 800 Bc - Ad 400
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Iron Age Livesprovides the first integrated academic treatment of the Iron Age of Britain and Ireland. After considering the social changes that marked the end of the Later Bronze Age, it examines the environmental, economic, demographic and cultural factors that underpinned the emergence of the fragmented and regionalised societies of the Early Iron Age. Subsequent chapters trace the development of increasingly complex and distinctive social forms across Britain and Ireland including the hillfort societies of southern England and the Welsh Marches; village communities of the Upper Thames Valley; the dense settlement landscapes, cemeteries and chariot burials of East Yorkshire; the hillfort communities of Northumbria and south-east Scotland; the broch-building societies of Atlantic Scotland; and the ritual landscapes of Iron Age IrelandCentral themes that cut across the book''s broadly chronological structure include: the creation and expression of individual and collective identities; the social role of art and religion; changing gender roles; technological innovation, including iron-working and rotary technology; the complex and varied treatments of the dead; gift-giving, trade and exchange; and the role of conflict and violence.The text is supported throughout by box features expanding on individual sites, objects, themes or debates and the book focuses, where appropriate, on fresh and exciting new finds and discoveries from the last few years including, for example, the well-preserved bog bodies from eastern Ireland, recently excavated chariot burials from Newbridge and Ferry Fryston, Iron Age roads from East Anglia, the Midlands and Ireland, musical instruments from High Pasture Cave in Skye and Cnip in Lewis, the shrine containing gold torcs from Stirlingshire, and the impact of AMS dating on the chronologies of Iron Age art and burial.

Literacy In The Digital University: Critical Perspectives On Learning, Scholarship And Technology

Product : Literacy In The Digital University: Critical Perspectives On Learning, Scholarship And Technology
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Literacy in the Digital University is an innovative volume bringing together perspectives from two fields of enquiry and practice: ¿literacies and learning¿ and ¿learning technologies¿. With their own histories and trajectories, these fields have seldom overlapped either in practice, theory, or research. In tackling this divide head on, the volume breaks new ground. It illustrates how complementary and contrasting approaches to literacy and technology can be brought together in productive ways and considers the implications of this for practitioners working across a wide range of contexts.The book showcases work from well-respected authorities in the two fields in order to provide the foundations for new conversations about learning and practice in the digital university. It will be of particular relevance to university teachers and researchers, educational developers and learning technologists, library staff, university managers and policy makers, and, not least, learners themselves, particularly those studying at post-graduate level.

Product : Global Democracy: For And Against: Ethical Theory, Institutional Design And Social Struggles
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book defends the case for the expansion of the democratic model to the global political sphere. Concentrating on the democratic deficit of international affairs, it examines the nexus between the phenomenon of international exclusion and the political response of global democracy. This distinctive position is developed through a critical survey of the principal theories for and against global democracy. The main rival narratives (realism, nationalism, civilizationism, and liberal internationalism) are rebutted on grounds of failing democratic principles of inclusion. Based on a notion of interaction-dependent justice, these theories arguably provide a crucial ideological support to the exclusionary attitude of the current international system. Going beyond these exclusionary paradigms, the book defends a model of cosmo-federalism that is all-inclusive, multilayered and rooted. The text adopts an interdisciplinary perspective that combines three areas of scholarship: international political theory, international relations and political sociology. Within them, a number of contemporary controversies are analyzed, including the ethical dispute on global justice, the institutional debate on supranationalism, and the political discussion on social emancipatory struggles. From such an interdisciplinary perspective derives an engaged text that will be of interest to students and researchers concerned with the key political aspects of the discussion on globalization and democratic global order.

American Foreign Policy and Postwar Reconstruction: Comparing Japan and Iraq

Product : American Foreign Policy and Postwar Reconstruction: Comparing Japan and Iraq
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : On the eve of the invasion of Iraq, President G.W. Bush argued that if setting up democracy in Japan and Germany after WW II was successful, then it should also be successful in Iraq. This book provides a detailed comparison of the reconstruction of Japan from 1945 to 1952 with the current reconstruction of Iraq, evaluating the key factors affecting the success or failure of such projects.The book seeks to understand why American officials believed that extensive social reengineering aiming at seeding democracy and economic development is replicable, through identifying factors explaining the outcome of U.S.-led post-conflict reconstruction projects. The analysis reveals that in addition to the effective use of material resources of power, the outcome of reconstruction projects depends on a variety of other intertwined factors, and Bridoux provides a new analytical framework relying on a Gramscian concept of power to develop a greater understanding of these factors, and the ultimate success or failure of these reconstruction projects.Appraising the effectiveness of American power in the contemporary international structure, this work is a significant contribution to the field and will be of great interest to all scholars of foreign policy, international relations and conflict studies.

Sustainability Of Concrete

Product : Sustainability Of Concrete
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Production of Portland cement is responsible for about seven percent of the world''s greenhouse gas emissions. The pressure to make the production of concrete more sustainable, or greener, is considerable and increasing. This requires a wholesale shift in processes, materials and methods in the concrete industry. Pure Portland cement will need to be replaced by more complex binary, tertiary or even quaternary binders, including other types of cementitious materials. We can expect an increasing use of high performance concrete, primarily because of its high sustainability and durability. Much more attention will have to be paid to the proper curing of the concrete if we want to improve its life expectancy.Presenting the latest advances in the science of concrete this book focuses particularly on sustainability, durability, and economy. It explores the potential for increased sustainability in concrete from the initial mixing right through to its behaviour in complex structures exposed to different types of loads and aggressive environments.

Product : Understanding Peace Research: Methods and Challenges
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This textbook provides a comprehensive overview of different methods and sources of information-gathering for peace and conflict students and researchers, as well as the challenges presented by such work.

Product : Shakespearean Adaptations in East Asia: A Critical Anthology Of Shakespearean Plays In China, Japan, Korea, And Taiwan: A Critical
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Co-published by Routledge and Edition Synapse.The last decade has witnessed a rapid increase in serious research on ''Shakespeare in Asia'', yet most readers of the many new monographs and journal articles on the subject have hitherto not enjoyed access to the plays discussed because they have not been readily available in English. Indeed, an authoritative collection of Asian Shakespeares has been long and eagerly awaited by many scholars and critics. This five-volume collection answers that need. It brings together newly prepared English translations of twenty-five Shakespearean adaptations and reworkings. Supplementing these new-previously unpublished-translations, each volume includes a separate critical introduction prepared for this collection by an expert volume editor, together with annotations. One or two photographs accompany each introduction to support and illustrate the discussion.The collection showcases the variety and multiplicity of Shakespeares reinvented in China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. It provides the first substantial and essential resource of Shakespearean adaptations in East Asia for scholars and critics, as well as graduate students interested in investigating Shakespearean re-creations in the region. Along with the volume introductions, each adaptation is also prefaced by a succinct introduction with full consideration given to overview, performance history, and analysis. Hence, the collection will be a definitive entry point for all students and researchers interested in Asian theatres as well as Shakespeares in Asia.

Understanding Small-Island Developing States: Fragility and External Shocks

Product : Understanding Small-Island Developing States: Fragility and External Shocks
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Small island developing states (SIDS) are characterised by high economic, geographical and social vulnerability. These states are perceived as economically vulnerable, exhibiting poor economic performance, and embedding low levels of achieved well-being on most criteria. SIDS, which occupy very large parts of the world, face idiosyncratic development challenges largely owing to their susceptibility to external shocks. Still, these countries are all too often overlooked in the development research literature.Arising from a UNU-WIDER research project, this book provides in-depth research on the international dimensions of SIDS development experiences. Using a wealth of data, as well as case studies, the main topics examined comprise: aid, policies and growth; the costs of neglect, in terms of losses owing to a country falling into the fragile states group, of that country and those in its region; the composition of trade and the impact of external shocks, and the impact of remittances. The studies jointly provide valuable insights for small islands and other developing countries in the pursuit of sustainable growth and development.This book was published as a special issue of theJournal of Development Studies.

Developing Alternative Frameworks for Explaining Tax Compliance

Product : Developing Alternative Frameworks for Explaining Tax Compliance
Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Over the last several decades, there has been a growing interest in theoretical, empirical, and experimental work on all aspects of tax compliance and tax evasion. The essays in this volume summarize the existing state of knowledge of tax compliance and tax evasion, present new thinking about this issue, and analyze the empirical relevance of these new perspectives. The original essays in this volume represent an attempt to provide a framework on compliance that moves beyond the economics-of-crime perspective, one that provides a more complete understanding of individual (and group) decisions, and one that is more consistent with empirical evidence.It is the insights of behavioural economics that provide much of the bases for these essays and the main theme running through this book is that the basic model of individual choice must be expanded, by introducing some aspects of behaviour or motivation considered explicitly by other social sciences.

Timber Bridges

Product : Timber Bridges
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Bridges built in timber are enjoying a significant revival, both for pedestrian and light traffic and increasingly for heavier loadings and longer spans. Timber''s high strength-to-weight ratio, combined with the ease and speed of construction inherent in the off-site prefabrication methods used, make a timber bridge a suitable option in many different scenarios.This handbook gives technical guidance on forms, materials, structural design and construction techniques suitable for both small and large timber bridges. Eurocode 5 Part Two (BS EN 1995-2) for the first time provides an international standard for the construction of timber bridges, removing a potential obstacle for engineers where timber construction for bridges has not ¿ in recent centuries at least ¿ been usual.Clearly illustrated throughout, this guide explains how to make use of this oldest construction material in a modern context to create sustainable, aesthetically pleasing, practical and durable bridges. Worldwide examples include Tourand Creek Bridge, Canada; Toijala, Finland; Punt la Resgia, Switzerland; Pont de Crest, France; Almorere Pylon Bridge, the Netherlands.

Russian Energy Power And Foreign Relations: Implications For Conflict And Cooperation

Product : Russian Energy Power And Foreign Relations: Implications For Conflict And Cooperation
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book examines Russia''s new assertiveness and the role of energy as a key factor in shaping the country''s behavior in international relations, and in building political and economic power domestically, since the 1990s. Energy transformed Russia''s fortunes after its decline during the 1990s. The wealth generated from energy exports sparked economic recovery and political stabilization, and has significantly contributed to Russia''s assertiveness as a great power. Energy has been a key factor in shaping Russia''s foreign relations in both the Eurasian and global context. This development raises a host of questions for both Russia and the West about the stability of the Russian economy, how Russia will use the power it gains from its energy wealth, and how the West should react to Russia''s new-found political weight. Given that energy is likely to remain at the top of the global political agenda for some time to come, and Russia''s role as a key energy supplier to Europe is unlikely to diminish soon, this book sheds light on one of the key security concerns of the 21st century: where is Russia headed and how does energy affect the changing dynamics of Russia''s relations with Europe, the US and the Asia-Pacific region. This book will be of interest to students of Russian politics, energy security, international relations and foreign policy in general. Jeronim Perovic is a senior researcher at the Center for Security Studies at ETH Zurich. Robert Orttung is a visiting scholar at the Center for Security Studies at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich and a senior fellow at the Jefferson Institute.

Jurisdiction in Deleuze: The Expression and Representation of Law

Product : Jurisdiction in Deleuze: The Expression and Representation of Law
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Jurisdiction in Deleuze: The Expression and Representation of Law explores an affinity between the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and jurisprudence as a tradition of technical legal thought. The author addresses and reopens a central aesthetic problem in jurisprudence: the difference between the expression and the representation of law. Deleuze is taken as offering not just an important methodological recovery of an ?expressionism? in philosophy ? specifically through Nietzsche and Spinoza ? but also a surprisingly practical jurisprudence which recasts the major technical terms of jurisdiction (persons, things and actions) in terms of their distinctively expressive or performative modalities. In paying attention to law?s expression, Deleuze is thus shown to offer an account of how meaning may attach to the instrument and medium of law and how legal desire may be registered within the texture and technology of jurisdiction. Contributing both to a renewed transposition of Deleuze into contemporary legal theory, as well as to an emerging interest in law?s technology, institution and instrumentality in critical legal studies, Jurisdiction in Deleuze will be of considerable interest.

It traces the background and the reasoning behind the establishment of the survey programme, examines the foundations upon which the system was based, and strives to understand the motivation of those who implemented it. This study shows that the roots of the modern survey system of Palestine are to be sought in the Balfour Declaration and its implications regarding land in Palestine. The land issue was at the core of the mapping of Mandatory Palestine, and it remains as a core issue at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian dispute.

New Cultural Identitarian Political Movements in Developing Societies: The Bharatiya Janata Party

Product : New Cultural Identitarian Political Movements in Developing Societies: The Bharatiya Janata Party
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Applying an intercultural and comparative theoretical approach across Asia and Africa, this book analyses the rise and moderation of political movements in developing societies which mobilise popular support with references to conceptions of cultural identity. The author includes not only the Hindu nationalist movement but also many Islamist political movements in a single category ? New Cultural Identitarian Political Movements (NCIPM). Demonstrating significant similarities in the pattern of evolution between these and European Christian Democracy, the book provides an instrument for the analysis of these movements outside the parameters of the fundamentalism debate. The book looks at a number of key variables for understanding the evolution of NCIPM, and it goes on to analyse the transition of developing societies from rent-based political economies to capitalism and the (partial) failure of this transition process. It argues that there is a need to incorporate economic and class analysis in the study of political processes in developing societies against the continuing emphasis on cultural factors associated with the cultural turn of social sciences. The book is an interesting contribution to studies in South Asian Politics, as well as Comparative Politics.

Crime Prevention

Product : Crime Prevention
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Prevention curtails freedom: cancer prevention entails not smoking; accident prevention entails putting pills in childproof containers; crime prevention entails not stealing things and hitting people. Prevention is usually seen as quite unexciting. Preventive medicine is less dramatic than surgery, crime prevention than detection. However, people doing less of one thing are free to do more of another: obesity prevention makes exercise possible and crime prevention frees up time, money and energy to invest elsewhere.This book seeks to enliven the topic of crime prevention by looking at pro-social behaviour alongside crime, to think of improving the quality of life by both deflecting people from the experience of crime - either as perpetrators, victims, or worried bystanders - and nudging them towards collaborative and altruistic behaviour; by changing things, places and people in ways which push people from crime and pull them towards active citizenship. Research and practice is reviewed taking this wider view of crime prevention.

Description : International Relations have rarely been considered a synthesis of humanistic and social sciences approaches to understand the complex connections of a global, and globalizing, world. One of the few scholars to have accomplished this creative blend was Hayward R.

They build on the foundation he laid, demonstrating the practicality and usefulness of ethically grounded, theoretically informed and interdisciplinary research for producing knowledge. They show how substantive boundaries can be crossed and methodological rules rewritten in the search for a deeper, more contextualized approach to global politics.This book will be of interest to researchers and students of international relations and global politics.

Green Aviation

Product : Green Aviation
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Aircraft emissions currently account for <3.5% of all greenhouse gas emissions. The number of passenger miles has increased by 5% annually despite 9/11, two wars and gloomy economic conditions. Since aircraft have no viable alternative to the internal combustion engine, improvements in aircraft efficiency and alternative fuel development become essential.This book comprehensively covers the relevant issues in green aviation. Environmental impacts, technology advances, public policy and economics are intricately linked to the pace of development that will be realized in the coming decades. Experts from NASA and industry review current technology development in green aviation that will carry the industry through 2025 and beyond. This includes increased efficiency through better propulsion systems, reduced drag airframes, advanced materials and operational changes. Clean combustion and emission control of noise, exhaust gases and particulates are also addressed through combustor design and the use of alternative fuels. Economic imperatives from aircraft lifetime and maintaince logistics dictate the drive for drop-in fuels, blending jet-grade and biofuel. New certification standards for such fuels are outlined. Life Cycle Assessments are used to evaluate worldwide biofuel approaches, highlighting that there is no single rational approach for sustainable buildup. In fact, unless local conditions are considered, the use of biofuels can create a net increase in environmental impact as a result of biofuel manufacturing processes. Governmental experts evaluate current and future regulations and their impact on green aviation. Sustainable approaches to biofuel development are discussed for locations around the globe, including the US, EU, Brazil, China and India.

Russia's Regions And Comparative Subnational Politics

Product : Russia's Regions And Comparative Subnational Politics
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Subnational political units are growing in influence in national and international affairs, drawing increasing scholarly attention to politics beyond national capitals. In this book, leading Russian and Western political scientists contribute to debates in comparative politics by examining Russia¿s subnational politics.Beginning with a chapter that reviews major debates in theory and method, this book continues to examine Russia¿s 83 regions, exploring a wide range of topics including the nature and stability of authoritarian regimes, federal politics, political parties, ethnic conflict, governance and inequality in a comparative perspective. Providing both qualitative and quantitative data from 20 years of original research, the book draws on elite interaction, public opinion and the role of institutions regionally in the post-Soviet years. The regions vary on a number of theoretically interesting dimensions while their federal membership provides control for other dimensions that are challenging for globally comparative studies. The authors demonstrate the utility of subnational analyses and show how regional research can help answer a variety of political questions, providing evidence from Russia that can be used by specialists on other large countries or world regions in cross-national scholarship.Situated within broader theoretical and methodological political science debates, this book will be of interest to students and scholars of Russian politics, comparative politics, regionalism and subnational politics.

Small States And International Security: Europe And Beyond

Product : Small States And International Security: Europe And Beyond
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book explains what ?small? states are and explores their current security challenges, in general terms and through specific examples. It reflects the shift from traditional security definitions emphasizing defence and armaments, to new security concerns such as economic, societal and environmental security where institutional cooperation looms larger. These complex issues, linked with traditional power relations and new types of actors, need to be tackled with due regard to democracy and good governance. Key policy challenges for small states are examined and applied in the regional case studies. The book deals mainly with the current experience and recent past of such states but also offers insights for their future policies. Although many of the states covered are European, the study also includes African, Caribbean and Asian small states. Their particular interest and relevance is outlined, as is the connection between their security challenges and their smallness. Policy lessons for other states are then sought. The book is the first in-depth, multi-continent study of security as an aspect of small state governance today. It is novel in placing the security dilemmas of small states in the context of wider ideas on international and institutional change, and in dealing with non-European states and regions.

Irish Feminist Futures

Product : Irish Feminist Futures

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book is about the future: Ireland¿s future and feminism¿s future, approached from a moment that has recently passed. The Celtic Tiger (circa 1995-2008) was a time of extraordinary and radical change, in which Ireland¿s economic, demographic, and social structures underwent significant alteration.Conceptions of the future are powerfully prevalent in women¿s cultural production in the Tiger era, where it surfaces as a form of temporality that is open to surprise, change, and the unknown. Examining a range of literary and filmic texts,¿Irish Feminist Futuresanalyzes how futurity structures representations of the feminine self in women¿s cultural practice. Relationally connected and affectively open, these representations of self enable sustained engagements with questions of gender, race, sexuality, and class as they pertain to the material, social, and cultural realities of Celtic Tiger Ireland.¿This book will appeal to students and scholars of Irish studies, Irish feminist criticism, sociology, cultural studies, literature, women''s studies, gender studies, neo-materialist and feminist theories.¿

The Skycourt And Skygarden: Greening The Urban Habitat

Product : The Skycourt And Skygarden: Greening The Urban Habitat
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Population increases, advances in technology and the continued trend towards inner-city migration have transformed the traditional city of spaces into the modern city of objects. This has necessitated alternative spatial and technological solutions to replenish those environments that were once so intrinsic to society¿s day-to-day interactions and communal activities.This book considers skycourts and skygardens as ¿alternative social spaces¿ that form part of a broader multi-level urban infrastructure ¿ seeking to make good the loss of open space within the built environment. Jason Pomeroy begins the discussion with the decline of the public realm, and how the semi-public realm has been incorporated into a spatial hierarchy that supports the primary figurative spaces on the ground or, in their absence, creates them in the sky. He then considers skycourts and skygardens in terms of the social, cultural, economic, environmental, technological and spatial benefits that they provide to the urban habitat. Pomeroy concludes by advocating a new hybrid that can harness the social characteristics of the public domain, but be placed within buildings as an alternative communal space for the 21st century.Using graphics and full colour images throughout, the author explores 40 current and forthcoming skycourt and skygarden projects from around the world, including the Shard (London), Marina Bay Sands (Singapore), the Shanghai Tower (China) and the Lotte Tower (South Korea).

Case Studies On Modern European Economy: Entrepreneurship, Inventions, And Institutions

Product : Case Studies On Modern European Economy: Entrepreneurship, Inventions, And Institutions
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The last two centuries have been the scene of dramatic change throughout Europe. And one of the main causes of these tremendous and spectacular changes was the economy. These transformations were achieved by people: scientists and political thinkers, inventors and entrepreneurs, educators, skilled and educated workers. Who not only invented machines and computers, but were able to renew economic and political systems. This volume, therefore, presents a new approach to the period by looking at case studies to understand how these changes came about and the impact they had on modern Europe. Ivan Berend presents the spectacular history of modern European economy as a chain of small events, actions, and the ideas of individuals, as the influence of institutions and bold entrepreneurs. The essays are grouped into six chapters and discuss the power of entrepreneurship; the power of institutions; economic regimes and the permanent renewal of capitalism; the power of ideas and inventions; pioneering companies; from the rise of industrial cities to post-industrial suburbanization; bubbles, great depressions and economic cycles. All of the single episodes and personal stories offer a cross-section of the complex and interrelated history of modern Europe. Case Studies on Modern European Economy will be essential reading for students of economic and modern European history.

Description : This book examines a rapidly emerging new topic in urban settlement patterns: the role of shrinking cities. Much coverage is given to declining fertility rates, ageing populations and economic restructuring as the factors behind shrinking cities, but there is also reference to resource depletion, the demise of single-company towns and the micro-location of environmental hazards.The contributions show that shrinkage can occur at any scale ¿ from neighbourhood to macro-region - and they consider whether shrinkage of metropolitan areas as a whole may be a future trend. Also addressed in this volume is the question of whether urban shrinkage policies are necessary or effective.The book comprises four parts:world or regional issues (with reference to the European Union and Latin America);national case studies (the United States, India, China, Korea, Taiwan, Germany, Romania and Estonia);city case studies (Detroit, Buffalo, Cleveland, Naples, Belfast and Halle);and broad issues such as the environmental consequences of shrinking cities.This book will be of interest to scholars and practitioners working in the fields of urban studies, economic geography and public policy.

Khedive Ismail's Army

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Khedive Ismail''s Armyexamines military failure in the age of imperialism.On paper, the mid-nineteenth century Egyptian army seems a formidable regional power. It had a tradition of success, modern weapons, and mercenary officers with experience in major wars. Egypt''s ruler, Khedive Ismail, hoped to combine the imported technology and brains with native manpower, and establish an Egyptian dominated Horn of Africa. His soldiers did conquer parts of the Sudan, but they suffered disastrous defeats during the Egyptian Abyssinian War of 1875 to 1876.Presenting the first detailed examination of the Egyptian Abyssinian War in English, this new book also looks at the root problems that made Ismail''s soldiers ineffective. These include issues of class, racism, internal, and external politics, finance, and the rapidly changing world of mid-Nineteenth Century military technology. This book is aimed at military historians, and will be of interest to those studying the Middle East or North East Africa.

Unfare Solutions: Local Earmarked Charges To Fund Public Transport

Product : Unfare Solutions: Local Earmarked Charges To Fund Public Transport
Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Transport policy is an increasingly difficult area for all national governments and regional/local authorities. Tackling car use and realising a sustainable transport system appears to be very difficult. Developing public transport is seen as an increasingly important element in improving the transport system, especially in densely populated areas. At the same time however, governments are under increasing pressure to cut taxation. As a result there is a growing gap between increasing policy need for public transport and government resources to fund that need. This timely book explores one solution to this dilemma, which is the use of local charges and taxes dedicated to support public transport.Unfare Solutionsexamines how and why such charges have evolved and how they do (or do not) relate to modern transport policy developments and theory. It shows innovative funding techniques developed by both public transport providers and federal and local authorities.

Psychoanalytic Reflections On A Gender-free Case: Into The Void

Product : Psychoanalytic Reflections On A Gender-free Case: Into The Void
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : The past two decades of psychoanalytic discourse have witnessed a marked transformation in the way we think about women and gender. The assignment of gender carries with it a host of assumptions, yet without it we can feel lost in a void, unmoored from the world of rationality, stability and meaning. The feminist analytic thinkers whose work is collected here confront the meaning established by the assignment of gender and the uncertainty created by its absence. The contributions brought together in Psychoanalytic Reflections on a Gender-free Case address a cross-section of significant issues that have both chronicled and facilitated the changes in feminist psychoanalysis since the mid 1980s. Difficult issues which have previously been ignored (such as the pregnancy of the therapist or sexual abuse regarded as more than a fantasy) are considered first. The book goes on to address family perspectives as they interact and shape the child?s experience of growing up male or female. Other topics covered are the authority of personal agency as influenced by the language and theory of patriarchy, male-centred concepts that consistently define women as inferior, and the concept of gender as being co-constructed within a relationship. The gender-free case presented here will fascinate all psychoanalysts interested in exploring ways of grappling with the elusive nature of gender, as well as those studying gender studies.

The Red Book: Reflections On C.g. Jung's Liber Novus

Product : The Red Book: Reflections On C.g. Jung's Liber Novus
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In 2009, WW Norton published ?The Red Book?, a book written by Jung in 1913-1914 but not previously published. Snippets of information about the likely contents of the Red Book had been in circulation for years, and there was much debate and eager anticipation of its publication within the Jungian field and the larger reading public. In 2010, a conference was held at the San Francisco Jungian Institute which brought together an international group of distinguished scholars in analytical psychology to explore and address critical contextual aspects of ?The Red Book? and to debate its importance for current and future Jungian theory and practice. The Red Book: Reflections on C.G. Jung?s Liber Novus is based on that conference, the individual papers have been thoroughly revised and updated for this book and address some of the important questions and issues that were raised at that conference in response to the presentation of these papers. As yet there has been very little published about ?The Red Book?. The Red Book: Reflections on C.G. Jung?s Liber Novus will contribute to setting the agenda for further research, both scholarly and clinical, in response to Jung?s account of his experiences between 1913-1914, when arguably, the future course of his entire project was set in motion. This book will be essential reading for any Jungian interested in the importance of The Red Book, analytical psychologists, trainee analysts, those with an interest in the history of ideas and historians.

Hindu Pilgrimage: Shifting Patterns Of Worldview Of Srisailam In South India

Product : Hindu Pilgrimage: Shifting Patterns Of Worldview Of Srisailam In South India
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In recent years, changes in religious studies in general and the study of Hinduism in particular have drawn more scholarly attention to other forms of the Hindu faith that are concretely embodied in temples, icons, artworks, rituals, and pilgrimage practices. This book analyses the phenomenon of pilgrimage as a religious practice and experience and examines Shr¿hailam, a renowned south Indian pilgrimage site of Shiva and Goddess Durga. In doing so, it investigates two dimensions: the worldview of a place that is of utmost sanctity for Hindu pilgrims and its historical evolution from medieval to modern times.Reddy blends religion, anthropology, art history and politics into one interdisciplinary exploration of how Shr¿hailam became the epicentre for Shaivism. Through this approach, the book examines Shr¿hailam¿s influence on pan-Indian religious practices; the amalgamation of Brahmanical and regional traditions; and the intersection of the ideological and the civic worlds with respect to the management of pilgrimage centre in modern times.This book is the first thorough study of Shr¿hailam and brings together phenomenological and historical study to provide a comprehensive understanding of both the religious dimension and the historical development of the social organization of the pilgrimage place. As such, it will be of interest to students of Hinduism, Pilgrimage and South Asian Studies.

Islam And Science: The Intellectual Career Of Nizam Al-din Al-nisaburi

Product : Islam And Science: The Intellectual Career Of Nizam Al-din Al-nisaburi
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In examining the work of eminent fourteenth century Iranian Shiite scholar Nizam al-Din al-Nisaburi, this book is the first rigorous attempt to explain the cross-fertilization of scientific and religious thought in Islamic civilization. Nisaburi did not consider himself a scientist alone, being commissioned by his patrons to work in a variety of fields. Islam and Science examines in detail the relationship between the metaphysics of Nisaburi''s science, and statements he made in his Qur''an commentary and in other non-scientific writings. Sources suggest that Nisaburi was inspired to begin his scientific career by the inclusion of basic science in a religious (madrasa) education. By mid-career, he had found methodological similarities between theoretical astronomy and Islamic jurisprudence. Morrison concludes that while Nisaburi believed science could give one a taste of God''s knowledge, he realised that the study of science and natural philosophy alone could not lead him to a spiritual union with God. Only Sufi practice and Sufi theory could accomplish that. Morrison''s work is remarkable in synthesizing the history of Islamic science with other areas of Islamic studies. It will be of interest to students and scholars of religion and the history of science, as well as readers with a more general interest in Middle Eastern studies.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : Despite intensified governmental and public efforts at corruption control in recent years, official transgression continues to surface in various ways of abusing the unique power and trust that a government holds.Preventing Corruption in Asiaaddresses a number of crucial questions:-What institutional arrangements are necessary to ensure a clean and honest government?- What self-regulatory capabilities must government institutions develop in order to maintain integrity?-How should a sense of ethical responsibility be instilled in the civil services?-Do special anti-corruption agencies help keep government clean?-How will a regulatory framework of official conduct work properly?-How useful are anti-corruption campaigns in containing corruption?Focusing on a number of carefully selected countries in the Asia and Pacific region, the book sets as its focal point the choice of institutional design inpreventingcorruption, rather than treating corruption as a practical or technical problem to be corrected by strong political will and good anti-corruption policy measures. While focusing on institutional designs and policy choices, the book  also examines other aspects of clean government such as the social environment, legal and regulatory framework, role of the public, and the impact of culture.

International Relations and the First Great Debate

Product : International Relations and the First Great Debate
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book provides an authoritative account of the controversy about the first great debate in the field of International Relations. Of all the self-images of International Relations, none is as pervasive and enduring as the notion that a great debate pitting idealists against realists took place in the 1940s. The story of the first great debate continues to structure the contemporary identity of International Relations, yet in recent years revisionist historians have challenged the conventional wisdom that the field experienced such a debate. Drawing on expert contributors working in Canada, Europe, the United Kingdom, and the United States, this book includes key participants in the historiographical controversy. The book assembles the existing scholarship and provides a thorough analysis of the status of the first great debate in the history of International Relations. It is an invaluable examination of the causes and future direction of idealist and realist arguments. International Relations and the First Great Debate will be of interest to students and scholars concerned with the foundations of International Relations.

Citizenship and Security: The Constitution of Political Being

Product : Citizenship and Security: The Constitution of Political Being
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : This book engages the intense relationship between citizenship and security in modern politics. It focuses on questions of citizenship in security analysis in order to critically evaluate how political being is and can be constituted in relation to securitising practices.In light of contemporary issues and events such as human rights regimes, terrorism, identity control, commercialisation of security, diaspora, and border policies, this book addresses a citizenship deficit in security studies. The chapters introduce several key political themes that characterise the interplays between citizenship and security: changes in citizenship regimes, the renewed insecurity of citizenship-state relations, the emerging ways by which the political and national communities are crafted, and the ways democratic societies and regimes react in times of insecurity. Approaching citizenship as both a governmental practice and a resource of political contestation, the book aims to highlight what political challenges and contestations are created in situations where security intensely meets citizenship today.This book will be of interest to scholars of security studies and security politics, citizenship studies, and international relations.

Competition and Regulation in the Airline Industry: Puppets in Chaos

Product : Competition and Regulation in the Airline Industry: Puppets in Chaos
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : An examination of the relationship between competition and the deregulation and liberalisation of the US and European air transport sectors reveals that the structure of the air transport sector has undergone a number of significant changes. A growing number of airlines are entering into horizontal and vertical cooperative arrangements and integration including franchising, codeshare agreements, alliances, ?virtual mergers? and in some cases, mergers with other airlines, groups of airlines or other complementary lines of business such as airports. This book considers the current legal issues affecting the air transport sector incorporating recent developments in the industry, including the end of certain exemptions from EU competition rules, the effect of the EU-US Open Skies Agreement, the accession of new EU Member States and the Lisbon Treaty. The book explores the differing European and US regulatory approaches to the changes in the industry and examines how airlines have remained economically efficient in what is perceived as a complex and confused regulatory environment. Competition and Regulation in the Airline Industry will be of particular interest to academics and students of competition law as well as EU law.

Penal Exceptionalism?: Nordic Prison Policy and Practice

Product : Penal Exceptionalism?: Nordic Prison Policy and Practice
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In the growing field of comparative criminal justice, the Nordic countries are regularly used as exceptions to the global move towards growing rates of imprisonment and tougher, less welfare-oriented crime-control policies. Why are the Nordic penal institutions viewed as so ?different? from a non-Nordic vantage point? Are Nordic prisons and penal policies in fact positive exceptions to the general rule? If they are, what exactly are the exceptional qualities, and why are the Nordic societies lucky enough to have them? Are there important overlooked examples of Nordic ?bad practice? in the penal area? Could there be a specifically Nordic way of doing prison research, contributing to the gap between internal and external perspectives? In considering ? among others ? the above questions, this book explores and discusses the Nordic jurisdictions as contexts for the specific penal policies and practices that may or may not be described as exceptional. Written by leading prison scholars from the Nordic countries as well as selected researchers from the English-speaking world ?looking in?, this book will be particularly useful for students of criminology and practitioners across the Nordic countries, but also of relevance in a wider geographical context.

Description : Generally, the taller the structure the more important the role of wind. Yet most designers of tall building structures lack a basic understanding of the response of these structures to wind loading.Drawing together the relevant structural design principles with code or wind tunnel specified loads can deliver efficient and cost-effective structural designs which offer an appropriate degree of service performance and ultimate reliability. Analysing the dynamic behaviour of existing flexible building structures under wind loading is essential for their management over a long service life. All of this requires knowledge and understanding beyond a traditional structural engineering background.This heavily practical book formalizes a great deal of information and understanding from the authors'' practice and their work in developing AISC, ACI and ASCE codes of practice.

The Development Of The Japanese Nursing Profession: Adopting And Adapting Western Influences

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 10
Description : In the years after 1868, when Japan''s long period of self-imposed isolation ended, in nursing, as in every other aspect of life, the Japanese looked to the west. This book tells the story of ''Florence Nightingale-ism'' in Japan, showing how Japanese nursing developed from 1868 to the present. It discusses how Japanese nursing adopted western models, implementing ''Nightingale-ism'' in a conscious, caricature way, and implemented it more fully, at least on the surface, than in Britain. At the same time Japanese nurses had to cope, with great difficulty, with traditional Japanese attitudes, which were strongly opposed to women being involved in professions of any kind, and, as the book shows, western models did not in fact penetrate very deeply.
