Beauty: Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial

Product : Beauty: Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Beauty--the book, born out of Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum''s 2015 Triennial of the same name, curated by Andrea Lipps and Ellen Lupton--showcases some of the most exciting and provocative design created around the globe during the past three years. These pages aim not to emphasize the hidden beauty in the everyday--a beloved teapot or favorite shoe--but to locate transformational beauty in contemporary design that is exuberant, ethereal, atmospheric, experiential, exceptional or sublime. Sixty-two designers represent a vast range of disciplines from architecture, fashion, digital, graphic, and product design, to interiors, hair, nail and lighting design. The objects featured cause us to take pause, catch our breath and get lost in our pursuit to understand or explain them. Designed by the innovative Kimberly Varella, the book is itself a tactile, fluid and provocative interpretation of beauty. Varella''s design provides unexpected points of entry, playing with the concepts of beauty by using reflective surfaces, hot pink thread weaving pages together and a heart of the book, from which all else flows. Ethereal, Intricate, Extravagant, Transformative, Transgressive, Elemental and Emergent Beauty are the seven themes. Each section includes the individual designers in conversation with the curators about her or his process and beauty''s differing forms, punctuated by rich galleries of their work, generating the ultimate feast for the senses.

The Outcast Spirit: and Other Stories

Product : The Outcast Spirit: and Other Stories
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : There is nothing else quite like the short stories of Lady Dilke in the annals of English literature, and even readers who have little sympathy with their stylistic affectations, allegorical pretensions and harrowing conclusions are likely to admit that they have a peculiar fascination. Those who find some resonance in their psychological ambience might easily think them touched with genius. The simple fact that they are so unusual is a great asset in itself, from the viewpoint of lovers of exotica, but they are not peculiar merely for the sake of cultivating unconventionality. Seen as an assembly, in fact, their visionary element acquires an extra dimension of coherency, and also manifests a marked evolution, from the slightly tentative experimental ventures of the stories in The Shrine of Death to the triptych of masterpieces constituted by "The Hangman’s Daughter," "The Triumph of the Cross" and "The Mirror of the Soul," which are truly remarkable works considered individually, but gain even more from being placed in the broad frame provided by this, the first comprehensive collection of the author’s fiction.

Description : Convertida en leyenda, tanto por su vida como por su obra, Tina Modotti tuvo una existencia llena de pasión y de furia, que encontró en la fotografía el medio ideal para expresar su disconformidad y compromiso con el tiempo que le tocó vivir.Tras dejar su natal Italia y después de un efímero paso por California, donde trabaja temporalmente en Hollywood, su relación con Edward Weston la traslada a México. Ahí se encuentra con un país entusiasta con las vanguardias europeas y los ideales revolucionarios, y se une al grupo de intelectuales y artistas —Diego Rivera, Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Jean Charlot, entre otros— que, indomables como ella, luchan por conquistar su libertad artística y personal. Luego de la muerte de su amante cubano, Julio Antonio Mella, en la que se ve involucrada, su fervor por la causa comunista la lleva a participar en la guerra civil española, hasta que como asilada regresa al México que había albergado sus más profundos anhelos y las más nobles utopías.Tinísima, novela con la que Elena Poniatowska se convierte en la retratista por excelencia de la condición histórica de las mujeres y alcanza el reconocimiento internacional, da cuenta del espíritu de una de las épocas más deslumbrantes del siglo xx tal y como la encarnó Tina Modotti: amante, militante y artista pero, sobre todo, protagonista de una vida intensa e inolvidable.

Description : The British artist Marc Quinn, born in 1964, came to the attention of the international art scene in 1991 with Self, a cast of his own head realized in eight pints of his own frozen blood, exhibited in a specially designed refrigeration unit. Since 1999, he has been creating sculptures in classic white marble of subjects who lack one or more limbs; the best known is his 2005 Trafalgar Square installation, Alison Lapper Pregnant. In addressing the purely physical aspects of life, Quinn confronts the viewer with the gaping chasm between the physical and the mental, beauty and ugliness, the eternal and the mortal. His work has been presented and acquired by leading galleries and museums around the world and was recently the subject of an exhibition at Mary Boone Gallery in New York. This overview of recent developments also includes a history of his career and documentation of all major works.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The revival of economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa is all the more welcome for having followed one of the worst economic disasters-a quarter century of economic malaise for most of the region-since the industrial revolution. Six of the world''s fastest-growing economies in the first decade of this century were African. Yet only in Ethiopia and Rwanda was growth not based on resources and the rising price of oil. Deindustrialization has yet to be reversed, and progress toward creating a modern economy remains limited.This book explores the vital role that active government policies can play in transforming African economies. Such policies pertain not just to industry. They traverse all economic sectors, including finance, information technology, and agriculture. These packages of learning, industrial, and technology (LIT) policies aim to bring vigorous and lasting growth to the region. This collection features case studies of LIT policies in action in many parts of the world, examining their risks and rewards and what they mean for Sub-Saharan Africa.

The United Nations As A Knowledge System

Product : The United Nations As A Knowledge System
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This book seeks to explore how the UN has generated, warehoused, disseminated, structured, packaged, expanded, transferred and leveraged its vast resources of accumulated information and experience throughout the decades and, particularly, since the start of the 21st century with the introduction of more connective information and communications technology. It examines the overarching objectives that have guided such activity and divides UN knowledge management into three distinct, but often overlapping and intertwining, categories:knowledge for social and organizational learning;knowledge for norm setting; andknowledge for creation of products and services.Svenson brings together these multiple aspects of UN knowledge management¿to present a holistic view of how the organization utilizes its global intelligence to educate, advocate and serve member countries¿ development. Instead of looking at the UN as an international bureaucracy or as a peacekeeping, policymaking, humanitarian or development entity, this work studies the UN as a generator and purveyor of information, learning and experience in all of these areas. This book will be key reading for all students and scholars of international organizations.

Zero Comments: Blogging and Critical Internet Culture

Product : Zero Comments: Blogging and Critical Internet Culture
Category : Books>Computers
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : InZero Comments, internationally renowned media theorist and ''net critic'' Geert Lovink revitalizes worn out concepts about the Internet and interrogates the latest hype surrounding blogs and social network sites. In this third volume of his studies into critical Internet culture, following the influentialDark FiberandMy First Recession, Lovink develops a ''general theory of blogging.'' He unpacks the ways that blogs exhibit a ''nihilist impulse'' to empty out established meaning structures. Blogs, Lovink argues, are bringing about the decay of traditional broadcast media, and they are driven by an in-crowd dynamic in which social ranking is a primary concern. The lowest rung of the new Internet hierarchy are those blogs and sites that receive no user feedback or ''zero comments''.Zero Commentsalso explores other important changes to Internet culture, as well, including the silent globalization of the Net in which the West is no longer the main influence behind new media culture, as countries like India, China and Brazil expand their influence and looks forward to speculate on the Net impact of organized networks, free cooperation and distributed aesthetics.

Competitive Authoritarianism: Hybrid Regimes After the Cold War

Product : Competitive Authoritarianism: Hybrid Regimes After the Cold War
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Competitive authoritarian regimes - in which autocrats submit to meaningful multiparty elections but engage in serious democratic abuse - proliferated in the post-Cold War era. Based on a detailed study of 35 cases in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and post-communist Eurasia, this book explores the fate of competitive authoritarian regimes between 1990 and 2008. It finds that where social, economic, and technocratic ties to the West were extensive, as in Eastern Europe and the Americas, the external cost of abuse led incumbents to cede power rather than crack down, which led to democratization. Where ties to the West were limited, external democratizing pressure was weaker and countries rarely democratized. In these cases, regime outcomes hinged on the character of state and ruling party organizations. Where incumbents possessed developed and cohesive coercive party structures, they could thwart opposition challenges, and competitive authoritarian regimes survived; where incumbents lacked such organizational tools, regimes were unstable but rarely democratized.

Iterative Receiver Design

Product : Iterative Receiver Design
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Iterative processing is an important technique with numerous applications. Exploiting the power of factor graphs, this detailed survey provides a general framework for systematically developing iterative algorithms for digital receivers, and highlights connections between important algorithms. Starting with basic concepts in digital communications, progressively more complex ideas are presented and integrated resulting in the development of cutting-edge algorithms for iterative receivers. Real-world applications are covered in detail, including decoding for turbo and LDPC codes, and detection for multi-antenna and multi-user systems. This accessible framework will allow the reader to apply factor graphs to practical problems, leading to the design of new algorithms in applications beyond digital receivers. With many examples and algorithms in pseudo-code, this book is an invaluable resource for graduate students and researchers in electrical engineering and computer science, and for practitioners in the communications industry. Additional resources for this title are available online at www.cambridge.org/9780521873154.

Product : Between Humanist Philosophy and Apocalyptic Theology: The Twentieth Century Sojourn of Samuel Stefan Osusky
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Samuel Stefan Osusky was a leading intellectual in Slovak Lutheranism and a bishop in his church. In 1937 he delivered a prescient lecture to the assembled clergy, The Philosophy of Fascism, Bolshevism and Hitlerism, that clearly foretold the dark days ahead. As wartime bishop, he co-authored a Pastoral Letter on the Jewish Question, which publicly decried the deportation of Jews to Poland in 1942; in 1944 he was imprisoned by the Gestapo for giving moral support to the Slovak National Uprising against the fascist puppet regime. Paul R. Hinlicky traces the intellectual journey with ethical idealism''s faith in the progressive theology of history that ended in dismay and disillusionment at the revolutionary pretensions of Marxism-Leninism. Hinlicky shows Osusky''s dramatic rediscovery of the apocalyptic the mother of Christian theology, and his input into the discussion of the dialectic of faith and reason after rationalism and fundamentalism.

Treasures In My Heart: A true WWII love story

Product : Treasures In My Heart: A true WWII love story
Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Paula Freeman was the sweetheart and eventually the wife of Sgt. John Ray, who was a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne Division. He participated in the invasions of Africa and Italy and then was sent into France on D-Day. The inspiration for this story comes from 333 love letters written to Paula by John from January 1941 through June 6, 1944, when he made his fatal jump into Ste. Mere Eglise, France. Using these letters, along with her thoughts, memories, and a diary, Paula has reconstructed a beautiful love story that stirs up memories of World War II and what it was like to send a loved one off to war. Paula was never told how John died. It wasn''t until she read Stephen Ambrose''s book, D-Day June 6, 1944: The Climactic Battle of World War II that she discovered that her husband was a hero. She learned that John was associated with some of the best trained, most capable, and intelligent men in the world and was defending our country. Paula''s goal in writing this book is to tell the world about this brave young man and to give him the honor, respect, and gratitude that is due him.

The Lord Of The Rings

Product : The Lord Of The Rings
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. From Sauron''s fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion. When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom. The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider. This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index. J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English writtentradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.

The Practice of Moral Judgment

Product : The Practice of Moral Judgment
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Barbara Herman argues for a radical shift in the way we perceive Kant''s ethics. She convincingly reinterprets the key texts, at once allowing Kant to mean what he says while showing that what Kant says makes good moral sense. She urges us to abandon the tradition that describes Kantian ethics as a deontology, a moral system of rules of duty. She finds the central idea of Kantian ethics not in duty but in practical rationality as a norm of unconditioned goodness. This book both clarifies Kant''s own theory and adds programmatic vitality to modern moral philosophy.

On Justification: Economies of Worth

Product : On Justification: Economies of Worth
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : A vital and underappreciated dimension of social interaction is the way individuals justify their actions to others, instinctively drawing on their experience to appeal to principles they hope will command respect. Individuals, however, often misread situations, and many disagreements can be explained by people appealing, knowingly and unknowingly, to different principles.On Justificationis the first English translation of Luc Boltanski and Laurent Thévenot''s ambitious theoretical examination of these phenomena, a book that has already had a huge impact on French sociology and is likely to have a similar influence in the English-speaking world.In this foundational work of post-Bourdieu sociology, the authors examine a wide range of situations where people justify their actions. The authors argue that justifications fall into six main logics exemplified by six authors: civic (Rousseau), market (Adam Smith), industrial (Saint-Simon), domestic (Bossuet), inspiration (Augustine), and fame (Hobbes). The authors show how these justifications conflict, as people compete to legitimize their views of a situation.On Justificationis likely to spark important debates across the social sciences.

China and New Left Visions: Political and Cultural Interventions

Product : China and New Left Visions: Political and Cultural Interventions
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Against the dire consequences of China''s market development, a new intellectual force of the New Left has come on the scene since the mid 1990s. New Left intellectuals debate the issues of social justice, distributive equality, markets, state intervention, the socialist legacy, and sustainable development. Against the neoliberal trends of free markets, liberal democracy, and consumerism, New Left critics launched a critique in hopes of seeking an alternative to global capitalism. This volume takes a comprehensive look at China''s New Left in intellectual, cultural, and literary manifestations. The writers place the New Left within a global anti-hegemonic movement and the legacy of the Cold War. They discover grassroots literature that portrays the plight and resilience of the downtrodden and disadvantaged. With historical visions the writers also shed light on the present by drawing on the socialist past.

Moderation and Revolution

Product : Moderation and Revolution
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In the intellectuality of capitalism there are two alternative ways to conceive of reality: the moderate one, which mediates dialectically, and the revolutionary one, which also comprises ruptures with disappearance. The former conforms to, and helps shape, the metaphysics of capitalism itself. The second is akin to the mode of progressing of nature in general, and forms the basis for materialism. Moderate positions tend to be intolerant because they do not recognize the other, which is constantly compelled to mediate. Revolutionary positions instead, recognizing the other, are tolerant and intrinsically non-violent. In capitalism as we know it liberalism, Marxism and anarchism would potentially be revolutionary. But they have been transformed in moderate modes of thought, similar for instance to nationalism, communitarianism, Christian ideas, fascism, socialism. Thus capitalism has become an intolerant world that seems built to block, by means of mediations, its own historical evolution. The outcome is a fascistic economy and polity.

Mediated Maternity: Contemporary American Portrayals Of Bad Mothers In Literature And Popular Culture

Product : Mediated Maternity: Contemporary American Portrayals Of Bad Mothers In Literature And Popular Culture
Category : Books>Family and Relationships
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Mediated Maternity: Contemporary American Portrayals of Bad Mothers in Literature and Popular Culture, by Linda Seidel, explores the cultural construction of the bad mother in books, movies, and TV shows, arguing that these portrayals typically have the effect of cementing dominant assumptions about motherhood in place-or, less often, of disrupting those assumptions, causing us to ask whether motherhood could be constructed differently. Portrayals of bad mothers not only help to establish what the good mother is by depicting her opposite, but also serve to illustrate what the culture fears about women in general and mothers in particular. From the ancient horror of female power symbolized by Medea (or, more recently, by Casey Anthony) to the current worry that drug-addicted pregnant women are harming their fetuses, we see a social desire to monitor the reproductive capabilities of women, resulting in more (formal and informal) surveillance than in material (or even moral) support.

God Loves Diversity And Justice: Progressive Scholars Speak About Faith, Politics, And The World

Product : God Loves Diversity And Justice: Progressive Scholars Speak About Faith, Politics, And The World
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Both personal and scholarly in tone, this book encourages readers to think theologically, ethically, and politically about the statement that declares: God loves diversity and justice. The multi-religious, multi-ethnic, multi-disciplinary, and multi-gendered identities of the eleven contributors and two respondents deepen the conversation. It considers questions such as: Do we affirm or challenge this theological statement? Do we concentrate on God in our response or do we interrogate what diversity and justice mean in light of God''s love for diversity and justice? Alternatively, do we prefer to ponder the verb, to love, and consider what it might mean for society if people really believed in a divinity loving diversity and justice? Of course, there are no easy and simple answers whether we consult the Sikh scriptures, the Bible, the Qur''an, the movies, the Declaration of Human Rights, or the transgender movement, but the effort is worthwhile. The result is a serious historical, literary, cultural, and religious discourse that fends against intellectually rigid thought and simplistic belief systems across the religious spectrum. In our world in which so much military unrest and violence, economic inequities, and religious strife prevail, such a conversation nurtures theological, ethical, and political possibilities of inclusion and justice.

Liberty And Liberticide: The Role Of America In Nineteenth-century British Radicalism

Product : Liberty And Liberticide: The Role Of America In Nineteenth-century British Radicalism
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : America was important to many British radicals. It was a model, an exemplar, a source of inspiration, and American events were believed to have a bearing on reform debates in Britain. Many scholars focus on the positive impressions of the United States that prominent British radicals entertained, developed, and propagated, but it is necessary also to explore the reasons why some radicals condemned rather than praised America, and to explain how America was conceptualized and used by them, and to what purpose. Liberty and Liberticide focuses on the influence America exerted over the ideas and activities of nineteenth-century British radicals. While some looked on America as the model of liberty, others associated it with the destruction of liberty. Turner shows how radicals'' views about the United States and the course of Anglo-American relations shaped their domestic reform agenda and their assumptions about British political values and Britain''s place in the world.

Description : Media and Politics in Contemporary Italy is the first book to provide a comprehensive examination of the media system in Italy during the last twenty years. Seeing the rise of new political actors and the growing role of the Internet and social media, the general elections of February 2013 have symbolically closed a twenty-year period of Italian history dominated by Silvio Berlusconi politically and by television as channel of political communication. The analysis focuses on change and continuity with past media structures, cultures and practices, and considers the Berlusconi factor, namely the impact of one man on the country''s media system, journalism, and political communication.

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Critical Articulations of Race, Gender, and Sexual Orientation engages scholarly essays, poems, and creative writings that examine the meanings of race, gender, and sexual orientation as interlocking systems of oppression. Each chapter in this volume critically, yet creatively, interrogates the notion of identity as socially constructed, yet interconnected and shaped by cultural associations, expanding on the idea that we as individuals live in an identity matrix-our self-concept, experiences, and interpretations originate or are developed from the culture in which we are embedded. The shaping of an individual''s identity, communication, and worldview can be read, shaped, and understood through life, art, popular culture, mass media, and cross-cultural interactions, among other things. The aptness of this work lies in its ability to provide a meaningful and creative space to analyze identity and identity politics, highlighting the complexities of identity formation in the twenty-first century.

Rationality, Rules, and Ideals: Critical Essays on Bernard Gert's Moral Theory

Product : Rationality, Rules, and Ideals: Critical Essays on Bernard Gert's Moral Theory
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Bernard Gert''s moral theory is among the clearest and most comprehensive on the contemporary scene. It touches on elements of the dominant ethical orientations--utilitarianism, Kantianism, contractionism, and virtue ethics-without fitting neatly into any of those categories. For that reason, Gert''s moral theory appeals to many ethicists dissatisfied with each of the dominant formulations. Rationality, Rules, and Ideals presents Gert''s Morality, the reactions by a number of prominent scholars, and Gert''s response. All told, it is a remarkably wide-ranging study of ethical theory. The work is broken down into six parts, making Rationality, Rules, and Ideals perfect for a broad-ranging course on ethical theory, following Gert''s critiques of utilitariansim, Kantianism, and virtue ethics. Both students and professionals will find much material to work with in this volume. The papers contribute not only to the understanding of Gert''s wide-ranging theory but to a number of important topics in ethic theory, the theory of rationality, and applied ethics.

Kant's Critique of the Power of Judgment: Critical Essays

Product : Kant's Critique of the Power of Judgment: Critical Essays
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Kant''s Critique of the Power of Judgment, first published in 1790, was the last of the great philosopher''s three critiques, following on the heels of Critique of Pure Reason (1781) and Critique of Practical Reason (1788). In the first two, Kant dealt with metaphysics and morality; in the third, Kant turns to the aesthetic dimension of human experience, showing how our experiences of natural and artistic beauty, the sublime magnitude and might of nature, and of purposive organisms and ecological systems gives us palpable evidece that it is possible for us not only to form moral intentions, but also to realize our freely chosen moral goals within nature as we experience it. The present volume collects twelve of the most important critical discussions on the Critique of the Power of Judgment written by leading Kant scholars and aestheticians from the United States and Great Britain. In addition to a substantive introduction by the editor, the book includes an extensive, annotated bibliography of the most important work on Kant and on the background and arguments of his third Critique published throughout the twentieth century.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This anthology brings more than fifty years of scholarship of the culture and sociology of work into a compelling introductory and analytical text. Sociologists have long sought to understand the universal activity of work from the point of view of the worker. This book shows how common sociological themes such as socialization, social interaction, the social construction of time, and deviance are experienced in work settings as diverse as the factory, the nightclub, the restaurant, and the offices of high-tech professionals. Featuring vivid ethnographies, the book is organized around the concept of culture: the recognition that people doing things together organize social life in common and identifiable ways. As such, this collection can be used as an innovative core reader or as an ideal supplement to standard texts that approach work from the demographic, structural, or macro perspectives. An online teaching guide is available to all adopters.

Shades of Difference: A History of Ethnicity in America

Product : Shades of Difference: A History of Ethnicity in America
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : From its prehistory in the biological theories of racial difference formulated in the 1800s to its current position in academic debate, Richard Rees investigates the diverse fields of scholarship from which the multifaceted understanding of the term ethnicity is derived. At the same time, Rees traces the broader historical forces that shaped the needs to which the concept of ethnicity responded and the social purposes to which it was applied. Centrally, he focuses upon the emergence of ethnicity in the early 1940s as a means of resolving contradictions and ambiguities in the racial status of European immigrants and its subsequent legacy and implications on race and caste. Shades of Difference introduces new perspectives on the definition of ''whiteness'' in America, and makes an original contribution to the larger discussion of race through a detailed account of ethnicity''s original meaning and its revaluation when later appropriated by the discourse of Black Nationalism in the 1960s and 70s. Rees has produced a powerful new analysis of the cultural and political history of ethnicity in America.

Description : Davide Panagia''s Impressions of Hume: Cinematic Thinking and the Politics of Discontinuity is volume fifteen of Modernity and Political Thought, the Rowman & Littlefield series in contemporary political theory. Through close attention to Hume''s theories of sensation, Davide Panagia conceptualizes the modern even more radically (though also more literally) than many of the previous authors in this series. While devoting attention to how a historical thinker such as Hume is read and misread, used and abused in the modern intellectual world, Panagia also focuses on developing a theory of Humean perception and by so doing emphasizes the contemporaneity of Hume''s thought. In what at first seems to be an anachronistic as well as wildly curious claim about a philosopher of the eighteenth century, Panagia holds that Hume was a cinematic thinker.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Susan Gluck Mezey''s newest book, Gay Families and the Courts, is a compelling examination of the role of the state and federal courts in furthering the goals of the gay and lesbian community. Unlike Mezey''s earlier book, Queers in Court, this book evaluates the extent to which litigation is effective in advancing equal rights for gay families_families in which at least one member is gay_as they seek to expand their opportunities and battle discrimination. Mezey shows how the courts address gay and lesbian rights and sexual orientation in schools and social organizations such as the Boy Scouts along with family-oriented problems such as marriage and parenthood. In doing so, Mezey emphasizes the complexity of the issues involved in the cases, and assesses the degree to which the outcome of the litigation is explained by the type of case, the type of court, and the judge''s perception of his or her role as a policymaker. It is a valuable reference for scholars interested in judicial, legislative, and executive policymaking at the federal and state level as well as anyone interested in LGBT politics.

Description : From the publisher of B. Kliban’s Cat, All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat, and Bad Cat, comes a new book that answers the question all cat lovers ask: How do I make my cat like me?97 Ways to Make a Cat Like You is the perfect interactive guide to these mysterious, fickle, seemingly aloof—yet really, just particular—pets. Paired with a full-color photograph of friendly, extroverted, happy cats (in case you’ve forgotten what a cat looks like when he “likes” you), the 97 inspired, occasionally silly but always behaviorally-based tips and tricks prove that when a cat is treated right, he or she will respond in kind. Within reason. There’s the “Eye on the Ball”—record a tennis match or a Ping-Pong game on TV to play back for your cat when he needs a bit of exercise. “Cat Burrito”—wrap your cat in a towel, burrito-style, which is particularly good for anxious pets or trips to the vet. The “Boing, Boing!”—wind pipe cleaners around a pencil in a spiral shape to create springs. Carefully slide off the pencil so the spirals go “boing” when pressed. The classic “Tickle, Tickle”—tickle Kitty under her chin and softly say “gitchy, gitchy, gitchy” in your highest-pitched voice. And for the cat owner willing to go the distance, the “There’s No Business Like Show Business”—practice your best Ethel Merman by belting out favorite show tunes for your cat. Kitty won’t care if you’re off-key and she’ll enjoy the stimulation.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This well-researched and theoretically informed book examines the nature and function of the main female characters in the nine novels of Machado de Assis. Earl Fitz argues that Machado had a particular interest in female characterization and that his fictional women became increasingly sophisticated and complex as he matured and developed as a writer and social commentator. Machado developed, especially after 1880 (and what is usually considered the beginning of his mature period), a kind of anti-realistic, new narrative, one that presents itself as self-referential fictional artifice but one that also cultivates a keen social consciousness. Fitz concludes that Machado increasingly uses his female characterizations to convey this social consciousness and to show that the new Brazil that is emerging both before and after the establishment of the Brazilian Republic (1889) requires not only the emancipation of black slaves but the emancipation of its women as well.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : A Primer on the History and Philosophy of Education is an introductory narrative of the foundational educational history and philosophy of the American system. The author presents the history of education as a part of the larger picture of the development of civilization. Therefore, the historic and philosophical antecedents of our current education system are explained. Starting with an overview of history and philosophy, the author proceeds to the Western experience in education as the baseline of all educational eras in the United States. This narrative will stimulate both student and teacher to find deeper veins of historical understanding in other works, internet sources, classical texts, and class discussions. In addition, the brevity of the text allows the instructor to select various works from primary education theorists such as Plato, Rousseau, Burke, and Dewey to augment the course content and tie the books together with lectures and narrative.

Men With Sexual Problems And What Women Can Do To Help Them

Product : Men With Sexual Problems And What Women Can Do To Help Them
Category : Books>Family and Relationships
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Thirty percent of all men suffer from premature ejaculation and another ten percent from erectile dysfunction. These statistics do not include men who experience too little or too much sexual desire, gender confusion disorders, sexual shyness, or inhibition. Yet there is a great deal of reluctance on the part of men and women alike to talk to each other about these shame-producing troubles. Most women are not aware of the profound effect difficulties in functioning sexually have on a man''s sense of self-worth. Through ignorance, partners can significantly exacerbate an already problematic situation; they can also be the pivotal force in helping to resolve them. Margolies carefully explains how men''s feelings about having a sexual problem can affect their self-image as well as their feelings about women. She discusses the personality characteristics associated with many problems, how to react when they first occur, as well as what never to say to a dysfunctional man. This practical manual gives up-to-date information about the male body and sexual functioning. Clearly described exercises and techniques will enable partners to work together to alleviate rather than worsen painful situations. Guidelines to determine those situations where professional help is needed, as well as when it is best to move on, complete this comprehensive, compassionate work.

Category : Books>Sports and Fitness
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : On a July afternoon in 1999, this country''s proudest moment in soccer occurred in Pasadena, California. In the presence of more than 90,000 fans and viewed by another 40 million watching on television, the United States women outlasted China to win the World Cup. Though it has lagged far behind in regard to the men''s game, the United States was at the forefront when it came to women''s soccer.In The U.S. Women''s Soccer Team: An American Success Story, Clemente A. Lisi looks at how the sport has gained popularity over the last couple of decades. While other books have written about the team during a specific year, such as those focused solely on the World Cup win on U.S. soil, Lisi looks beyond this event, detailing the program''s infancy and how it steadily became a model for women''s teams around the globe.Beginning with the start of the U.S. program in 1985, Clemente Lisi recounts the development of the women''s team, highlighted by their two first place finishes in the Women''s World Cups (1991 and 1999) and three Olympic Women''s Gold Medals (1996, 2004, and 2008).

Too Bold for the Box Office: The Mockumentary from Big Screen to Small

Product : Too Bold for the Box Office: The Mockumentary from Big Screen to Small
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Although considered a relatively new genre, the mockumentary has existed nearly as long as filmmaking itself and has become one of the most common forms of film and television comedy today. In order to better understand the larger cultural truths artfully woven into their deception, these works demonstrate just how tenuous and problematic our collective understandings of our social worlds can be.In Too Bold for the Box Office: The Mockumentary from Big Screen to Small, Cynthia J. Miller has assembled essays by scholars and filmmakers who examine this unique cinematic form. Individually, each of these essays looks at a given instance of mockumentary parody and subversion, examining the ways in which each calls into question our assumptions, pleasures, beliefs, and even our senses. Writing about national film, television, and new media traditions as diverse as their backgrounds, this volume''s contributors explore and theorize the workings of mockumentaries, as well as the strategies and motivations of the writers and filmmakers who brought them into being.Reflections by filmmakers Kevin Brownlow (It Happened Here), Christopher Hansen (The Proper Care and Feeding of An American Messiah), and Spencer Schaffner (The Urban Literacy Manifesto) add valued perspective and significantly deepen the discussions found in the volume''s other contributions. This collection of essays on films, television programming, and new media illustrates common threads running across cultures and eras and attempts to answer sweeping existential questions about the nature of social life and the human condition.

Lord Dunsany, H.p. Lovecraft, And Ray Bradbury: Spectral Journeys

Product : Lord Dunsany, H.p. Lovecraft, And Ray Bradbury: Spectral Journeys
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : In his classic study Supernatural Horror in Literature, H. P. Lovecraft discusses the emergence of what he called spectral literature-literature that involves the gothic themes of the supernatural found in the past but also considers modern society and humanity. Beyond indicating how authors of such works derived pleasure from a sense of cosmic atmosphere, Lovecraft did not elaborate on what he meant by the term spectral as a form of haunted literature concerned with modernity. In Lord Dunsany, H. P. Lovecraft, and Ray Bradbury: Spectral Journeys, William F. Touponce examines what these three masters of weird fiction reveal about modernity and the condition of being modern in their tales. In this study, Touponce confirms that these three authors viewed storytelling as a kind of journey into the spectral. Furthermore, he explains how each identifies modernity with capitalism in various ways and shows a concern with surpassing the limits of realism, which they see as tied to the representation of bourgeois society. The collected writings of Lord Dunsany, H. P. Lovecraft, and Ray Bradbury span the length of the tumultuous twentieth century with hundreds of stories. By comparing these authors, Touponce also traces the development of supernatural fiction since the early 1900s. Reading about how these works were tied to various stages of capitalism, one can see the connection between supernatural literature and society. This study will appeal to fans of the three authors discussed here, as well as to scholars and others interested in the connection between literature and society, criticism of supernatural fiction, the nature of storytelling, and the meaning and experience of modernity.

Border Crossings: Mexican and Mexican-American Workers

Product : Border Crossings: Mexican and Mexican-American Workers
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : The history of Mexican and Mexican-American working classes has been segregated by the political boundary that separates the United States of America from the United States of Mexico. As a result, scholars have long ignored the social, cultural, and political threads that the two groups hold in common. Further, they have seldom addressed the impact of American values and organizations on the working class of that country. Compiled by one of the leading North American experts on the Mexican Revolution, the essays in Border Crossings: Mexican and Mexican-American Workers explore the historical process behind the formation of the Mexican and Mexican- American working classes. The volume connects the history of their experiences from the cultural beginnings and the rise of industrialism in Mexico to the late twentieth century in the U.S. Border Crossings notes the similar social experiences and strategies of Mexican workers in both countries, community formation and community organizations, their mutual aid efforts, the movements of people between Mexico and Mexican-American communities, the roles of women, and the formation of political groups. Finally, Border Crossings addresses the special conditions of Mexicans in the United States, including the creation of a Mexican-American middle class, the impact of American racism on Mexican communities, and the nature and evolution of border towns and the borderlands.

Using Marginal Damages in Environmental Policy: A Study of Air Pollution in the United States

Product : Using Marginal Damages in Environmental Policy: A Study of Air Pollution in the United States
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : This technical volume makes the case that air pollution policy in the United States can be improved through consideration of both the marginal abatement costs facing regulated sources, and the marginal damages associated with their emissions. The preferred approach is a fully efficient regulatory scheme. Recognizing that completely reforming today''s regulatory program, which consists of a mix of command-and-control policies and cap-and-trade programs, is not likely to be easy in the short run, the authors propose a prioritization scheme for regulatory reform. This scheme ranks sources according to the net marginal damage of additional emissions. Policymakers should focus reforms on those sources and pollutants with the largest differences between marginal damages and marginal costs; this will yield the greatest return on incremental investments in abatement.

Poststructuralism And Educational Research

Product : Poststructuralism And Educational Research
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : Poststructuralism, and its implications for something called postmodernism, is a major topic of discussion in social theory and research generally, including educational research. The works of the major authors in this tradition (Foucault, Lyotard, Cixous, Derrida, Haraway, to name a few) are challenging and difficult. Yet more and more theorists and researchers in educational scholarship use this term to describe their work. What does poststructuralism mean for these authors, and what significance does it have for educational inquiry? This book takes on these central questions and explores the impact of poststructuralism in language that makes the basic issues at stake accessible for a broad readership. Michael Peters and Nicholas C. Burbules highlight the implications of a poststructuralist stance for the conception of the research subject and examine its standards of validity and methods of investigation. They also lay out the distinguishing characteristics of this approach to educational inquiry, using as examples the particular ways in which writers (including Giroux, McLaren, Lather, and Ball) have tried to incorporate the poststructuralist perspective into their investigations of educational issues. The emphasis throughout this book will be on making these complex theoretical issues tangible and salient for the educational researcher.

The Algebra of Data: A Foundation for the Data Economy

Product : The Algebra of Data: A Foundation for the Data Economy
Category : Books>Computers
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 2
Description : There has never been a universal algebra of data. Mathematics has been widely employed by software in many ways: numerical analysis, statistics, algorithms, mathematical modeling, and so on, but it has never been used to formally define data in all its variety.This changed when mathematical research into data algebra—carried out for Algebraix Data Corporation by one of the authors of this book—matured and was tested in an extensive range of data management, data integration, and performance optimization contexts. The purpose of this book is to explain that data algebra.The book is undeniably and unashamedly a mathematics text. However, realizing that the readership would likely include many software developers and users as well as mathematicians, the book is written to be as accessible as possible to anyone with some mathematical skills. As such, this is not your grandfather’s mathematics text. Between the various set theory assertions, expressions, and equations flows a narrative that is both surprising and entertaining.The subtitle of the book, A Foundation for the Data Economy, is not hyperbole. The mathematical definition of data, and the various set theoretical operations and functions that can be applied to it, provide a new approach to data. It will, in time, become the natural foundation for the emerging data economy that is already growing swiftly.
