More Theatre: Stage to Screen to Television, 1993-2001

Product : More Theatre: Stage to Screen to Television, 1993-2001
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : A continuation of More Theatre: Stage to Screen to Television, this new volume brings the previous volumes into the new millennium, covering the years 1993-2001. All volumes cover productions that have been performed in all of three media: stage, screen, and television. Whether the production began on the stage, screen, or television is not part of the criteria; it is only necessary that it eventually was performed in all three media. Where new information was added to old entries, the entries have been repeated. Plenty of new entries have been added, as many new shows have qualified for inclusion since the last volume. Each entry includes a brief historical overview of the evolution of the stories behind the various productions, followed by a list of the production titles, along with production dates and credits. The stage, screen and television fan and researcher alike will not be able to dispense with this fun and useful tool.

Historical Dictionary Of Madagascar

Product : Historical Dictionary Of Madagascar
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Madagascar, widely known as the Great Island, is just off the coast of Africa in the Indian Ocean, but in many ways it hardly resembles its mainland neighbors. Its flora and fauna are quite distinct, and the folkways and culture of its population are intriguingly different from that of the continental countries. This revised and expanded edition fills us in on the changes that have occurred over the past decade while still covering the long and intricate history of the country. It starts with the earliest settlers, continues through the period of French colonial rule, and then describes more intensively the period of independence, with all its aspirations, failures, and renewed hopes. This is done in a broad introduction, an extensive chronology, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant persons, places, and events; ethnic groups and religions; and economic, social, and cultural aspects. Also included is a bibliography offering further reading.

Fantasy Literature For Children And Young Adults

Product : Fantasy Literature For Children And Young Adults
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Fantasy conjures up images of witches, fairies, dark woods, magic wands and spells, time travel, ghosts, and dragons. Each of us defines fantasy in a personal way, based on our life stories, experiences, hopes, dreams, and fears. Fantasy Literature for Children and Young Adults, helps teachers and students of literature to develop their own understandings of this broad genre in order to evaluate and promote the joy of fantasy in their classrooms. An excellent teaching tool, the discussions are organized around three categories of fantasy literature, including fairy/folktale; mixed fantasy (which includes journey, transformation, talking animal, and magic); and heroic-ethical; and they are supported by well-chosen examples of representative authors, critics, and theorists. With the assumption that the reader has no special knowledge of fantasy literature but has some previous exposure to the study of literature for children and young adults, this book focuses on reviewing texts that illustrate particular types of fantasy literature. The authors have an extensive knowledge of both classic and contemporary children''s and YA titles, and they offer many insightful observations and details that make a book a particularly good classroom choice. Literature allows us to discuss controversial issues without making judgments; it allows us the opportunity to experience another time and space by providing a new lens through which to view; and it offers us a multitude of ways to come to appreciate and embrace the world of fantasy. Fantasy Literature for Children and Young Adults will help teachers and other readers to deepen their knowledge, appreciation, and pedagogical understandings of fantasy literature.

Beyond the Pale: New Essays for a New Era

Product : Beyond the Pale: New Essays for a New Era
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : For nearly a decade Marc Aronson ran an imprint dedicated to international and multicultural literature for teens. He was known in the industry for publishing edgy books, and for his commitment to bringing the experiences of non-dominant authors and illustrators to the world. Yet in the summer of 2001 he wrote an essay that argued against awards, such as the Pure Belpre and Coretta Scott King prizes, for which you must be a member of a given ethnic group to win. Not surprisingly, his article was very controversial; and the author and publisher Andrea Davis Pinkney who had created an imprint specifically designed to be of, by, and for African Americans, published a thoughtful reply. Here, in Beyond the Pale, Aronson explains the passionate convictions that led him to write his essay, and outlines objections made by others; then reprints the original alongside Pinkney''s response. As Aronson prepared a formal response to his critics, the attacks of September 11th took place. This tragedy simultaneously made a squabble among authors seem petty, and the issues around art, society, and cultural diversity all the more important. Throughout 2001 and 2002, Aronson wrote essays in which he weighed out how art, history, and books for younger readers could respond to the altered world. As in his previous collection, Exploding the Myths, the Truth About Teenagers and Reading, he exposes the mythologies and false beliefs that distort our understanding of books and their readers. Provocative and informative, this collection of essays will challenge those who know children''s literature well to think in new ways, while linking the debates within that industry to the wider intellectual currents of our time.

Bibliography of Southeast Asia: A Decade of Selected Social Science Publications in the English Language 1990 - 2000

Product : Bibliography of Southeast Asia: A Decade of Selected Social Science Publications in the English Language 1990 - 2000
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The Bibliography of Southeast Asia is a selection of representative English language publications on the social sciences spanning a decade of one of the most interesting times in the region, the last of the second millennium, 1990-2000. The selection attempts to capture the documentation of the breathtaking pace of relatively peaceful regional development. It saw unprecedented high and double-digit growth underpinned and accelerated by information technology and the Internet reinforcing the globalization process. A burgeoning middle class heightened consumerism. Continued efforts at regionalization saw the expansion of ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations), embracing all ten countries. This was juxtaposed by widening income gaps, spread of deepening poverty, increased legal and illegal labour migration (as well as people trafficking) within the region as well as intra-migration from rural to urban centres. Health services were stretched thin in some countries on account of the spread of AIDS, drug addiction and trafficking were on the rise, so was crime; media control was tightened as governments became more paranoid, and opposition politics were stifled as governments became more authoritarian, more focused and single-minded on economic development. As a result, the environment was compromised; trees, forests and jungles were felled, cleared and burnt for profit. Governance and corruption were issues in public debates. Concomitantly, religion, especially Islam, was on the rise; civil society became more mature as the population was more exposed and educated. As the decade came to a close, uncontrolled financial and banking activities brought about the breakdown of some major economies (in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia), kicked in a recession, caused political turmoil, and finally the collapse of the government and leadership of the most populous country, viz., Indonesia. The Bibliography comprises 6,521 entries, hard choices made from a good preliminary selection of some 12,000 publ

Flowers After the Funeral: Reflections on the Post 9/11 Digital Age

Product : Flowers After the Funeral: Reflections on the Post 9/11 Digital Age
Category : Books>History>Americas
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This is not a book I ever intended to write. It emerged as I worked to understand the events of September 11, 2001. It is my effort to make sense of my life and my profession during a difficult time. My aim is to suggest that understanding information technology requires an understanding of society and its people and organizations, especially as we look out over the wreckage of the high-tech industry and the contradictory aims of government to protect and control us.-Richard Cox In this series of four essays, Richard J. Cox explores the social and professional ramifications of 9/11 on our information landscape. Musing, written on the first anniversary of the terrorist attacks, looks back at a year of change and commemoration. Reacting examines the impact of 9/11 on a department of information sciences. Preparing is a cogent argument for the need to rethink current disaster and contingency planning practices. Teaching focuses on the author''s experiences developing and teaching a doctoral seminar on the role of the information professional in a post 9/11 world. Miss Manners assures us that a floral arrangement is always appropriate, no matter how much time has passed since the event. Neither a cautionary tale nor practical advice, Flowers After the Funeral is one such bouquet, its simplicity and thoughtfulness are certain to provide both comfort and inspiration to its recipients.

Eleanor Parker: Woman of a Thousand Faces

Product : Eleanor Parker: Woman of a Thousand Faces
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This is the first book on enduring Hollywood star Eleanor Parker, long underrated despite three best actress Academy Award nominations (Caged, 1950; Detective Story, 1951; Interrupted Melody, 1955). Parker was a beauty as well as a versatile actress, and her achievements approach those of more publicized colleagues Bette Davis and Katharine Hepburn. With Parker''s blessing and her son Paul Clemens'' cooperation, Doug McClelland has written one of the most thorough examinations of a film star''s career. The book is valuable to librarians, academies, and film enthusiasts for its extensive documentation and analyses of all of Parker''s work, for the bibliographies of her coverage in books and periodicals, for the portrait of a glamorous, creative era in filmmaking, and for the insights into the careers of Eleanor Parker''s associates, many among the most heavily researched motion picture artists of cinema''s Golden Age. The book contains a forward by noted screenwriter William Ludwig, who won an Academy Award for Parker''s Interrupted Melody, and afterword by Marjorie Lawrence, the opera singer whom Parker portrayed in Interrupted Melody, and photos of Eleanor Parker that show her in many of her thousand faces.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Authors Laurdella Foulkes-Levy and Burt J. Levy provide a wealth of insight into the life of this significant feminist composer of the twentieth-century. The work surveys her compositions written through 2001, and recounts many of the subject''s anecdotes as told to the authors, revealing much about the origins of Van de Vate''s compositions, moral views, and musical theory. After tracing Van de Vate''s tumultuous life experiences including a divorce, remarriage, professorships at numerous American Universities, and eventual settlement in Austria, the Levys undertake a close examination of the composer''s musical works. Accompanying the analyses are musical examples from the composer''s large repertoire of scores. An audio CD containing five of Van de Vate''s larger works as well as portions of her lesser-known compositions further enhance the book.

Constraining Public Libraries: The World Trade Organization's General Agreement on Trade in Services

Product : Constraining Public Libraries: The World Trade Organization's General Agreement on Trade in Services
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In Constraining Public Libraries: The World Trade Organization''s General Agreement on Trade in Services, the authors present a compelling argument for why the library community should be concerned about the effect of international trade agreements on the ability to deliver library and information services to the public. The book begins with a rigorous yet succinct description of the relevant provisions of the General Agreement on Trade in Services (GATS), proceeds to discuss how it is likely to impact particular public library services, and then discusses how the library community could best respond to these challenges. While there cannot be certainty when considering how GATS will ultimately impinge upon public libraries, this book pinpoints potential problem areas. It is a valuable tool in informing the dialogue within public libraries on the World Trade Organization, and providing the foundation for effective advocacy at the domestic and international levels to ensure that public libraries continue to play a central role in their communities for generations to come. Those in library and information science, as well as public administrators, educators, students, political and policy science professionals, government officials, and trade negotiators, will find this book to be an informative resource.

Product : Historical Dictionary of Sierra Leone

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Sierra Leone was founded, albeit under British control, with the highest hopes of being a refuge for liberated Africans and freed slaves. When the country received its independence, hopes for the future grew even stronger. Alas, its expectations came crashing down when the country''s situation grew steadily worse after repeated military interventions and a devastating ten-year civil war that raged throughout the 1990s. Now that the war is over, there is once again renewed cause for optimism about the country''s future, as Sierra Leone becomes an active participant in African and world affairs. This new edition is based primarily on recent research on the country, but covers the earliest known inhabitants, the colonial era, and the period of independence including the very confusing turmoil of the recent past. The chronology briefly traces its history and the introduction provides an essential overview of all the recent developments in the country. Hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries describe significant leaders, events, political parties and movements, ethnic groups, and related political, economic, and social aspects. A bibliography is included to facilitate further research.

Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The traditions of the Mediterranean island of Corsica have been well preserved and revitalized, yet little has been written about it in scholarly circles. This work represents the first treatise on Corsican music in the English language. Transported by Song: Corsican Voices from Oral Tradition to World Stage chronicles the evolution of Corsican music from the early 20th century to the present, charting its progression from the world of oral tradition to a vibrant new performance culture maintained by an expanding cohort of cosmopolitan players. Drawing on extensive fieldwork, comprehensive interviewing, and close observation of Corsican affairs, author Caroline Bithell maps out the social, cultural, economic, and political climate of Corsica in the 20th and early 21st centuries, offering insights into the way French cultural policy, decentralization legislation, and EU funding structures have impacted musical activity on the island. Key issues are explored through case studies of Corsican performing groups, allowing the reader to appreciate the musicians'' inspirations and intentions, their ability to balance local and cosmopolitan frames of reference, and the relation of their new output to ''traditional'' idioms and procedures. The book also offers new perspectives on debates about music and ethnicity and gender dynamics, and explores the use of modern technology in an oral idiom, and the psycho-physiological and transcendental experiences associated with polyphonic singing. Well researched and comprehensively written, Transported by Song also includes musical transcriptions, a glossary, discography, filmography, and bibliography.

Historical Dictionary of United States-Russian/Soviet Relations

Product : Historical Dictionary of United States-Russian/Soviet Relations
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : For more than 200 years the United States and Russia have shared a multi-faceted relationship. Because of the rise of power the two countries enjoyed in the late 19th and through the 20th century, Russian-American relations have dominated much of recent world history. Prior to World War II the two countries had relatively friendly contacts in culture, commerce, and diplomacy, however, as they contested for supremacy during the Cold War relations turned hostile and competitive. With the apparent end of the Cold War with the collapse of the Soviet Union and of communism in 1991, the relationship continues to evolve and the future looks uncertain but promising. The Historical Dictionary of United States-Russian/Soviet Relations identifies the key issues, individuals, and events in the history of U.S.-Russian/Soviet relations and places them in the context of the complex and dynamic regional strategic, political, and economic processes that have fashioned the American relationship with Russia. This is done through a chronology, a bibliography, an introductory essay, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on key persons, places, events, institutions, and organizations.

Historical Dictionary of U.S. Diplomacy since the Cold War

Product : Historical Dictionary of U.S. Diplomacy since the Cold War
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The post-Cold War diplomacy of the United States evolved in stages that reflected changes in the international system. Through the 1990s, the nation''s foreign affairs were marked by an evolution away from the post-World War II focus on security and superpower competition to a more multifaceted and nuanced series of policies that included economic concerns, social and cultural issues, and environmental matters. However, an escalating series of terrorist attacks that culminated in the 11 September 2001 strikes on New York and Washington, D.C. led to the reemergence of security as the main foreign policy issue for the United States. The subsequent American-led war on terror mirrored the Cold War in its goals, and the administration of President George W. Bush endeavored to build a multinational counterterrorism coalition that paralleled the Western alliance of the bipolar era. The Historical Dictionary of U.S. Diplomacy Since the Cold War is a concise overview of the main figures, conflicts, events, and policies of the United States in the post-Cold War era. The study explores the main elements of U.S. foreign policy and the regional and international reaction to American policies from the presidency of George H. W. Bush to that of George W. Bush. Through its entries, the book analyzes the underlying themes of U.S. diplomacy and the new policies formulated and implemented in response to broad changes in global politics. The book includes a chronology of events from 1991 to 2007, an introduction that highlights important themes of the era, cross-referenced entries on significant topics, a detailed bibliography, and appendixes of major documents. The work is ideal for both public and academic libraries, the general public, or the specialist looking for a reference tool in this area.

The Films of Woody Allen: Critical Essays

Product : The Films of Woody Allen: Critical Essays
Category : Books>Entertainment>Performing Arts
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : From What''s Up, Tiger Lily? to Match Point, Woody Allen''s work has generated substantial interest among scholars and professionals who have written extensively about the director. In The Films of Woody Allen: Critical Essays, Charles L.P. Silet brings together two-dozen scholarly articles that address the core of Allen''s work from a variety of cultural and theoretical perspectives. With a special emphasis on his films of the 1980s, this collection includes both general essays that examine various themes and issues encompassed in Allen''s repertoire, as well as discussions that focus on one or two specific films. General essays explore Allen''s Jewish background as a religious and cultural facet, his apparent love affair with New York City, and his relation to various strains of humor_particularly American film humor, but also Allen''s broad use of such traditional comic tropes as irony and parody. The essays on individual films include examinations of some of Allen''s most significant work including Love and Death, Annie Hall, Interiors, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Hannah and Her Sisters, Manhattan, and Shadows and Fog. A number of the articles collected here were originally published in now hard to locate places, while others were selected from journals not usually associated with film studies. The result is an anthology of essays that presents an overview of the central issues raised by Allen''s body of work as well as a close examination of fourteen individual films that convey these larger themes. A wide-ranging exploration of one of America''s most innovative and productive modern directors, this book should appeal to both professionals and students of contemporary film comedy.

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In the last several decades, the number of films featuring female protagonists has increased significantly. Many of these films reflect the vast cultural and sociological changes that have taken place since the early 1960s, highlighting not only a wide spectrum of female characters depicted onscreen, but the creative work of women behind the camera as well. In Reel Women: An International Directory of Contemporary Feature Films about Women, media librarian Jane Sloan has assembled an impressive list of more than 2400 films_from nearly 100 countries_that feature female protagonists. Each entry includes a brief description of the film and cites key artistic personnel, particularly female directors, producers, and screenwriters involved in its production. Reel Women also contains a critical survey in which Sloan charts the changes women have undergone both on screen and off, as moviemaking and audience sensibilities have evolved in the last forty-plus years. Listing many more films on the subject of women than can be found in any other source, this reference brings together important titles from area studies and genre markets along with titles associated with women''s cinema and feminist film. In addition to title and actor indexes, the book contains a subject index that provides detailed access to place names, historical characters, time periods, and storylines, as well as the backgrounds_religious, racial, and ethnic_of the main characters. This directory is an ideal reference tool for researchers studying the evolution of female characters in films around the world, from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe.

Musical AKAs: Assumed Names and Sobriquets of Composers, Songwriters, Librettists, Lyricists, Hymnists and Writer

Product : Musical AKAs: Assumed Names and Sobriquets of Composers, Songwriters, Librettists, Lyricists, Hymnists and Writer
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : There are many reasons for musical artists to write or compose under an assumed name: be it hiding or drawing attention to their ethnicity or gender, pursuing an additional career or genre, or writing a parody or humorous music. Often, nicknames are assigned to composers and lyricists, whether they want them or not. Whatever the reasons for these artists to use assumed names instead of or in addition to their own, this comprehensive resource has amassed and cataloged them. Musical AKAs is a wide-ranging index of assumed names and sobriquets of approximately 9,800 composers, songwriters, lyricists, librettists, hymnists, and writers of music. More than 15,000 assumed names-whether legal name changes, pseudonyms, pen names, or nicknames-have been collected into one easy to reference listing. Author Jeanette Drone has assembled information from numerous music sources-including comprehensive and biographical dictionaries and encyclopedias, biographies, journals, Internet web sites, and print and online copyright sources-and organized them into this extensive four-part volume. Part I alphabetically lists the sources in which assumed names or sobriquets were found for three or more individuals. Part II lists alphabetically the original names of artists from both popular and classical music, detailing their assumed names and sobriquets, dates, occupations, source codes, and complete bibliographic citations for print and Internet sources. The pseudonyms are cataloged alphabetically in Part III, with references to the original names. Musical AKAs concludes with Part IV, offering additional explanatory information on both original and assumed names.

Catholic Spirit: Wesley, Whitefield, and the Quest for Evangelical Unity in Eighteenth-Century British Methodism

Product : Catholic Spirit: Wesley, Whitefield, and the Quest for Evangelical Unity in Eighteenth-Century British Methodism
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The relationship between John Wesley and George Whitefield has often been viewed as suffering from irreconcilable theological differences. In fact, for several years, the relationship between these two leaders of the revival of the Christian faith in eighteenth-century England was strained almost to the breaking point. Whitefield, a Calvinist, believed that each individual who ever lived was either destined for the glories of heaven or the horrors of hell due to an irrevocable decree of God. Wesley on the other hand argued that each person has placed before them two options: either to accept God''s forgiveness or to reject it in favor of following one''s own way. Most books in the past have focused on these John Wesley''s and George Whitefield''s differences, but what has been overlooked is the lasting friendship between these two men, which, after a brief period of separation, was restored for the sake of the continuation of the revival movement on two continents. Catholic Spirit: Wesley, Whitefield, and the Quest for Evangelical Unity in Eighteenth-Century British Methodism focuses on the key themes upon which both men agreed. It stresses the commonalties between the two leaders of British Methodism and illustrates the great lengths both went to in order to further the revival of the Christian religion in England and North America. Both Wesley and Whitefield claim to possess Catholic spirits, that is, they both believed the importance of working with other like-minded individuals to spread the message of salvation through Christ. Author James Schwenk argues that they were successful in promoting that spirit of cooperation, even as some of their followers failed to understand how hard they worked at making molehills out of mountains.

Historical Dictionary of the Dirty Wars

Product : Historical Dictionary of the Dirty Wars
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Unlike a conventional war waged against a standing army, a dirty war is waged against individuals, groups, or ideas considered subversive. Originally associated with Argentina''s military regime from 1976-1983, the term has since been applied to neighboring dictatorships during the period. Indeed, it has become a byword for state-sponsored repression anywhere in the world. The first edition of this reference illustrated the concept by describing the regimes of Argentina, Chile (1973-1990), and Uruguay (1973-1985), which tortured, murdered, and disappeared thousands of people in the name of anticommunism while thousands more were driven into exile. The second edition expands the scope to include Bolivia (1971-1982), Brazil (1964-1985), and Paraguay (1954-1989). In mid-1975 the six countries joined forces, creating Operation Condor, a top-secret military network that hunted down one another''s political enemies. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of The Dirty Wars focuses on the period 1954-1990 in South America, when authoritarian regimes waged war on subversion, both real and imagined. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and over 400 cross-referenced dictionary entries on the countries; guerrilla and political movements; prominent guerrilla, human-rights, military, and political figures; local, regional, and international human-rights organizations; and artistic figures (filmmakers, novelists, and playwrights) whose works attempt to represent or resist the period of repression.

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In 1934, Ngaio Marsh''s first novel, A Man Lay Dead, was published to critical acclaim. For the next fifty years, Marsh wrote more than 30 English detective novels, while simultaneously building a reputation as a distinguished director of Shakespearean theatre. She received the Crime Writers Association''s Red Herrings Award in 1955 and was made a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1978. In 1948 Marsh was awarded an Office of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for services to literature and the theatre, and in 1967, she was created a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE). As a New Zealander, Marsh was the only colonial writer to be ranked with Agatha Christie, Dorothy L. Sayers, and Margery Allingham as one of the grande dames of the Golden Age. Ngaio Marsh: The Woman and Her Work is a collection of essays celebrating this multifaceted talent-painter, playwright, director and detective novelist. Originally created to celebrate the centenary of Marsh''s birth, this comprehensive profile addresses various aspects of this remarkable woman''s personality, life, and work. Her official biographer, Margaret Lewis, her cousin John Dacres-Mannings, and two fellow Detection Club members-H.R.F. Keating and Julian Symons-pay tribute to Marsh as a person and a colleague. Marsh''s career in the theatre is traced by Paul R. Bushnell, and its influence on her detective writing is assessed by Marilyn Rye and Catherine Aird. Her contribution as a novelist of manners is addressed by Alzina Stone Dale, Kathryne S. McDorman, B.A. Pike, and Susan Oleksiw, while her accomplishments in short fiction are discussed by Douglas G. Greene and Bruce Harding. In addition to the thirteen essays, this volume contains a chronology of Marsh''s plays, as well as a bibliography of her novels and short stories.

Mystical Love in the German Baroque: Theology, Poetry, Music

Product : Mystical Love in the German Baroque: Theology, Poetry, Music
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Mystical Love in the German Baroque: Theology, Poetry, Music identifies the cultural and devotional conventions underlying expressions of mystical love in poetry and music of the German baroque. It sheds new light on the seemingly erotic overtones in settings of the Song of Songs and dialogues between Christ and the faithful soul in late 17th- and early 18th-century cantatas by Heinrich Schütz, Dieterich Buxtehude, and Johann Sebastian Bach. While these compositions have been interpreted solely as a secularizing tendency within devotional music of the baroque period, Isabella van Elferen demonstrates that they need to be viewed instead as intensifications of the sacred. Based on a wide selection of previously unedited or translated 17th- and 18th-century sources, van Elferen describes the history and development of baroque poetic and musical love discourses, from Schütz''s early works through Buxtehude''s cantatas and Bach''s cantatas and Passions. This long and multilayered discursive history of these compositions considers the love poetry of Petrarch, European reception of petrarchan imagery and traditions, its effect on the madrigal in Germany, and the role of Catholic medieval mystics in baroque Lutheranism. Van Elferen shows that Bach''s compositional technique, based on the emotional characteristics of text and music rather than on the depiction of single words, allows the musical expression of mystical love to correspond closely to contemporary literary and theological conceptions of this affect.

The A to Z of the Druzes

Product : The A to Z of the Druzes
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The Druzes are one of the smallest, least studied, and most esoteric religious communities in the Middle East. This is because the Druze teachings remain inaccessible not only to outsiders but also to uninitiated members within the Druze community itself. Furthermore, proselytizing-inducing someone to convert to one''s own religious faith-has been prohibited since the establishment of the sect in the 11th century. In order to resist assimilation by the various empires and colonial powers that sought to dominate them-the Byzantines, various Arab dynasties, the Mamluks and Ottomans, the British and French, in addition to the nations that govern them-the Druzes disguise and conceal their beliefs. Therefore, not much is known by outsiders about the Druzes. This dictionary provides nearly 1,000 concise and informative cross-referenced A to Z entries on religious, political, and cultural themes, as well as entries on a number of major families and individuals (artists, writers, diplomats, and leaders) who have contributed to the Druze communities. This volume is also complemented with a chronology, an introductory essay, and a bibliography.

Description : The War of 1812 was an extremely complicated war motivated by British seizures of American vessels and goods, American desire to expand into Canada, and impressment of American sailors into the British Navy. However, these are merely the immediate causes. To fully understand the War of 1812, one must delve deeper into history. This book does just that, as it covers the period leading up to the war (1803-1812) and the events of the war itself (1812-1815) through the use of a dictionary consisting of more than 1,400 cross-referenced entries covering descriptions of engagements, ships, weaponry, the compositions of regiments, significant political and military figures, and a full list of key places, issues and terms. Also included are a chronology of events, an introductory essay, and a comprehensive bibliography, subdivided by topic and fully annotated.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Having only emerged in the past few decades, Feminist Philosophy is rapidly developing its own thrust in areas of particular importance to feminism-and women more generally-while also reevaluating and reshaping most other fields of philosophy, from ethics to logic and Marxism to environmentalism. It draws not only on feminist philosophers but criticizes, approves, or appropriates the work of the leading philosophers of all times. The introduction to this reference work provides a useful overview of the subject area and the chronology runs the gamut from Ancient Greek philosophers to contemporary feminist ones. The cross-referenced dictionary entries cover both the central figures and ideas from the historical tradition of philosophy, as well as ideas and theories from contemporary feminist philosophy, such as epistemology (the philosophy of science) and topics that have been introduced by the feminist movement itself, like abortion and sexuality. In addition to including entries on Aristotle, Plato, Descartes, Kant, Wollstonecraft, Beauvoir, and Daly, relevant aspects of other fields of philosophy, the major concepts, and prevailing interpretations and conjectures are also covered. A comprehensive bibliography allows for further reading.

Description : The sport of tennis has been played in one form or another for more than 800 years. It can trace its roots to games played by monks in the 12th century. Through the years the game has evolved from one in which the ball was struck with the hands to the modern game in which rackets are used to propel the ball in excess of 150 miles per hour. From the sport of the elite to the sport played by elite athletes, tennis has grown immensely in the past 135 years and it remains one of the few sporting pastimes that is played extensively by people of all ages and all nationalities. The Historical Dictionary of Tennis presents a comprehensive history of the game through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, photos, and over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries on places, teams, terminology, and people, including Arthur Ashe, Björn Borg, Don Budge, Chris Evert, Roger Federer, Billie Jean King, Rod Laver, Suzanne Lenglen, John McEnroe, Rafael Nadal, Martina Navratilova, and Bill Tilden.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Tokyo is Japan''s largest city and its capital. It is also one of the largest cities in the world and a major center of global economic influence. The origins of human settlement in what is today Tokyo are lost in prehistory. The city started out quite modestly as a small castle town of Edo in 1457, then the center of the Tokugawa shogunate from 1603-1868, the rapidly modernizing and Westernizing capital of the nation during the Meiji Period (1868-1912), and the capital of a prosperous nation and growing empire thereafter. Tokyo was utterly devastated during World War II, but this was not the first time Tokyo had to start seemingly from new. Due to many fires and earthquakes, the city has constantly rebuilt itself and today it outdoes all its previous emanations by far. The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of Tokyo is a much-needed reference source on the city. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, an extensive bibliography, and over 600 cross-referenced dictionary entries on people, places, events, and other terminology about the city of Tokyo. This book is a must for anyone interested in Japan and Tokyo.

Description : The A to Z of the Gulf Arab States comes at a time when the world''s attention is riveted on the Middle East. The small states covered in this volume-Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)-possess about 20 percent of the world''s total oil reserves. Beyond the strategic and economic importance conferred upon them by their vast oil reserves, the Gulf Arab states are worthy of attention for the inherent interest of their history and culture. No area of the world has yielded more revealing and exciting archaeological finds in the past few decades than these states. Investigations have brought to light extensive evidence of an important culture as old as Egypt of the Pharaohs or ancient Babylon, which was virtually unknown previously except through rare references in the records of other civilizations. The A to Z of the Gulf Arab States is a paperback reprint of the Historical Dictionary of the Gulf Arab States. This edition covers the history of the five countries through a chronology broken down by country, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on important persons, places, and events of each country. Everything from the Abbasids to Zubarah is covered in this essential reference on this increasingly important region of the world.

Product : The Solo Singer in the Choral Setting: A Handbook for Achieving Vocal Health
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : While there are many similarities between solo and choral singing, they are not the same discipline, and it is important to realize the different approaches necessary for each. In The Solo Singer in the Choral Setting: A Handbook for Achieving Vocal Health, Olson presents the unique perspective of choral singing from a soloist''s viewpoint, providing a clear outline of several issues facing the solo singer in the choral setting. She discusses concepts as diverse as body position in rehearsal and acoustic sound production, and she offers practical ideas for solving these challenges. Teaching examples and case studies help illustrate the problems and offer potential solutions for handling the challenges of the choral environment.After a general overview of vocal technique, the chapters address the physiological, psychological, pedagogical, acoustic, and interpretive issues facing the solo singer in the choral setting. Concepts, such as phonation; resonation and timbre; approaches to diction; voice classification; choral blend; interpreting emotion; relationships among choral conductor, singer, and teacher of singing; and the use of vibrato are examined in detail. Concluding with a conversation with two choral conductors, as well as a glossary, bibliography, and index, this volume is beneficial to singers, teachers, and conductors alike.

Franz Waxman's Rebecca: A Film Score Guide

Product : Franz Waxman's Rebecca: A Film Score Guide
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Upon his arrival in Hollywood, Alfred Hitchcock began work on his first American film, an adaptation of Daphne du Maurier''s best-selling novel. Produced by David O. Selznick and featuring compelling performances by Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine, and Judith Anderson, Rebecca became one of Hitchcock''s most successful films. It was nominated for eleven Academy Awards and received the Oscar for Best Picture, the only Hitchcock work to be so honored. Without question, one of the reasons for the film''s success is its ninety minutes of dramatic musical underscoring by Franz Waxman. In Franz Waxman''s Rebecca: A Film Score Guide, David Neumeyer and Nathan Platte situate the score for this classic work within the context of the composer''s life and career. Beginning with Waxman''s early training and professional experience as a jazz musician and film-music arranger-orchestrator in Berlin, the authors also recount the composer''s work in the music department at MGM between 1936 and 1942. During this period, Waxman was loaned out to Selznick International Pictures and wrote the music for Rebecca. Through manuscript and archival research, Neumeyer and Platte untangle the threads of the film''s complicated music production process, which was strongly influenced by Selznick''s habit of micromanaging music choices and placement. This volume concludes with a thematic analysis and reading of the score that incorporates commentary on scenes and cues. The first book devoted to the music of a single film by this great composer from Hollywood''s golden age, Franz Waxman''s Rebecca: A Film Score Guide will be of interest to musicologists and film scholars, as well as fans of Alfred Hitchcock and Franz Waxman.

An American Organist in Paris: The Letters of Lee Orville Erwin, 1930-1931

Product : An American Organist in Paris: The Letters of Lee Orville Erwin, 1930-1931
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Growing up in Huntsville, Alabama, during the first quarter of the 20th century, Alabama-born organist and composer Lee Orville Erwin, like many of the 20th century''s great American composers, spent time studying in Paris. From 1930 until 1931 Erwin studied in France with organist André Marchal and the harmony teachers Jean Verd and Nadia Boulanger. This formative experience greatly shaped his compositional style and aesthetic. Upon returning to the United States, Erwin began his lengthy career in radio and television working with Arthur Godfrey. In 1967, Erwin was commissioned by the American Theater Organ Society to compose organ music for the Gloria Swanson film Queen Kelly. It was this film that led his career back into the consoles of the great American theater organs. He toured extensively, playing thousands of concerts of organ music during silent film showings. He thus ushered in the silent film revival, continuing the genre of live music performance accompanying film. Erwin, believing that cue sheets originally compiled for these films during the silent film era were full of the musical cliché''s of the 1920s, composed new scores to over 100 silent films.An American Organist in Paris presents Lee Orville Erwin''s letters from France to his family in 1930-1931. In these letters, Erwin recounts his daily experiences and encounters with some of the 20th century''s greatest musicians and teachers. He writes of his lessons with Marchal, Verd, and Boulanger and dinner parties with Olivier Messiaen. Erwin''s letters not only provide the singular experiences of a young musician but also reflect the common experiences shared by the multitude of American composers who studied in France during this time. These letters are extensively footnoted to provide clarity and background information of the locations and personalities discussed. A biographical chapter on Erwin, which outlines his extensive musical career and impact on the silent film music revival in the 20th century, is also included. This book will serve as a unique glimpse into the life of one of America''s most prolific composers for the theater organ.

Melody, Harmony, Tonality: A Book For Connoisseurs And Amateurs

Product : Melody, Harmony, Tonality: A Book For Connoisseurs And Amateurs
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Where did the major scale come from? Why does most traditional non-Western music not share Western principles of harmony? What does the inner structure of a canon have to do with religious belief? Why, in historical terms, is J.S. Bach''s music regarded as a perfect combination of melody and harmony? Why do clocks in church towers strike dominant-tonic-dominant-tonic? What do cathedrals have to do with monochords? How can the harmonic series be demonstrated with a rope tied to a doorknob, and how can it be heard by standing next to an electric fan? Why are the free ocean waves in Debussy''s La Mer, the turbulent river waves in Smetana''s Moldau, and the fountain ripples in Ravel''s Jeux d''Eau pushed at times into four-bar phrases? Why is the metric system inherently unsuitable for organizing music and poetry? In what way does Plato''s Timaeus resemble the prelude to Wagner''s Das Rheingold? Just how does Beethoven''s work perfectly illustrate fully functional tonality, and why were long-range works based on this type of tonality impossible before the introduction of equal temperament? In this new century, what promising materials are available to composers in the wake of harmonic experimentation and, some would argue, exhaustion?The answers to these seemingly complicated questions are not the sole province of music professors or orchestra conductors. In fact, as E. Eugene Helm demonstrates, they can just as easily be explained to amateurs, and their answers are important if we are to understand how Western music works. The full range of Western music is explored through 21 concise chapters on such topics as melody, harmony, counterpoint, texture, melody types, improvisation, music notation, free imitation, canon and fugue, vibration and its relation to harmony, tonality, and the place of music in architecture and astronomy. Intended for amateurs and professionals, concert-goers and conductors, Helm offers in down-to-earth language an explanation of the foundations of our Western music heritage, deepening our understanding and the listening experience of it for all.

The Coherence of Life Without God Before God: The Problem of Earthly Desires in the Later Theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Product : The Coherence of Life Without God Before God: The Problem of Earthly Desires in the Later Theology of Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In his Letters and Papers from Prison, Dietrich Bonhoeffer urges Christians to feel their longings for earthly realities to the fullest, and argues that such yearnings strengthen faith. This issue has been overlooked by Bonhoeffer scholars, despite its central place in the Letters; this study seeks to correct that oversight. Through a selective, chronological analysis of the Ethics, this text shows Bonhoeffer progressively developing a positive view of the natural and of fallen life which undergirds his later encouragement of secular longings in the Letters. This new perspective has rich implications for Christian anthropology and ethics. Contents: include: Earthly Desires in the Letters and Papers from Prison and Bonhoeffer''s Pre-1939 Writings: An Introduction to the Problem; Earthly Desires in the Life of Bonhoeffer: Biographical Background of the Problem; Bonhoeffer on Earthly Desires in His Ethics: Toward a Solution to the Problem; and Bonhoeffer on Desires: Does He Solve the Problem?

The Unmaking of God

Product : The Unmaking of God
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book shows that the connections between philosophy and religion, especially Christianity, are illegitimate ones. The history of religious thinking has been created by philosophical reasoning. Breaking the grip of this thinking on religious life has an impact on thinking about God as well. To meet this challenge, the author reviews philosophy''s history and its consequences for religious thinking. Then he turns to what authentic religious life involves. Nietmann asserts that philosophical dedication to objective truth forms a barricade to authentic religious life. In Part I, the author sketches a philosophical history in whose terms religious thinking developed. Part II recognizes the contemporary rejection, especially by continental philosophy, of traditional philosophical conceptualizations of reality and how it is known. Contents: Preface; Introduction; PART I: PHILOSOPHICAL OBJECTIVITY AND ITS RELIGIOUS IMPACT; God and Reality; Religious Experience; The Humanization of Religion; Timely Religion; PART II: THE EXISTING INDIVIDUAL AND RELIGION; The Logic of Being a Subject; Religious Language; Conclusion-The Dwelling That Words Among Us; Index.

Product : Psychology and Religion: Eight Points of View
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Can psychology explain religious behavior? This book explores the thinking of eight pioneers of religious psychology, including Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. Fuller presents the theories of these seminal figures in a clear, straightforward way, and also examines the limits of psychological explanations of religion. He concludes the book by exploring the contributions to religion by some prominent recent figures in psychology such as Ana-Maria Rizzuto, Paul W. Pruyser, and Bernard Spilka. Praise for the latest edition of Psychology and Religion: Professor Fuller has made a valuable contribution to students of psychology and religion. He has brought together in a single volume eight of the most important thinkers in their field. By presenting the views of these seminal figures in a cogent, straightforward manner and with scholarly faithfulness to their ideas, Fuller has eased the task of exploring an extremely challenging area. He is to be commended for his impressive effort. -Steven M. Rosen, The College of Staten Island

Real Life in Castro's Cuba

Product : Real Life in Castro's Cuba
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This new book provides a first-hand, grassroots look at life in Cuba, including very vivid descriptions of its people and places. Real Life in Castro''s Cuba illuminates the human face of Cuba, which over the years has largely been hidden in the shadow of Fidel Castro. Real Life in Castro''s Cuba is written by Catherine Moses, who lived and worked in Cuba as a press secretary and spokesperson for the United States from 1995 to 1996. This compelling, compassionate portrait contains personal observations about the Cubans'' struggles, triumphs, hopes, and daily compromises to survive. The Cuban population lives with a deteriorating infrastructure, forcing many hardships on the people, including a scarcity of food, fuel, clothing, medicines, and other basic needs. The author''s detailed cultural account of Cuba introduces the reader to everyday Cubans from party officials to dissidents to everyone in between. It shows how Cuba''s socialist system works and gives reasons why Fidel Castro is still in power. Real Life in Castro''s Cuba also describes the significant role of religion and spirituality in the life of Cubans. Although Moses expresses regret over the state of U.S.-Cuban relations, the purpose of the book is not to choose up sides. Instead, the book is designed simply to introduce readers to real life in Cuba. The book''s unique approach allows an intimate picture of life in a faded Marxist regime. As the author writes, Cuba is a curious mixture of Spanish Caribbean, socialist ideals gone awry, memories of what was, and a desperate need to survive. This fascinating new book will appeal to all readers who are interested in getting a closer look at what life is like in Cuba today.

Integral Outsiders: The American Colony in Mexico City, 1876D1911

Product : Integral Outsiders: The American Colony in Mexico City, 1876D1911
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In this original and compelling book book, William Schell Jr. examines the largest foreign colony in Mexico during the reign of Porfirio D''az, from 1876 to 1911. Expatriate Americans constituted the greatest number of technicians, technocrats, consultants, engineers, agronomists, mining specialists, railroad experts, and venture capitalists in Mexico. The influence of these ''integral outsiders'' extended far beyond economics and Porfirian efforts to manage the booming era of Mexican modernization. Marriages between Americans and Mexican society women and membership in such organizations as Masonic brotherhoods brought the foreigners into the most important social circles. Integral Outsiders: The American Colony in Mexico City, 1876D1911, contains a colorful history of the Porfiriato through the lens of American participation, including carefully wrought descriptions of expatriate Americans. These individual biographies make the narrative more human and interesting, allowing Schell to move beyond the simplistic view of weak, greedy Mexican elites conspiring with powerful, greedy foreign capitalists to amass great wealth while impoverishing the Mexican masses and creating economic underdevelopment. Basing his comments on meticulous research, Schell points out that U.S. influence was hardly a one-way street and that the interaction between U.S. citizens and Mexicans was a complex system of cultural negotiations. He demonstrates convincingly that, while insinuating themselves into Mexican society, Americans thought that they were changing Mexico, and, in so doing, changed themselves. As Schell states, ''Ultimately, then, it may be said that the Porfirian regime got the form of hegemony it sought, and Washington took the sort of hegemony it could get.''

One Damn Blunder from Beginning to End: The Red River Campaign of 1864

Product : One Damn Blunder from Beginning to End: The Red River Campaign of 1864
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In the spring of 1864, as the armies of Grant and Lee waged a highly scrutinized and celebrated battle for the state of Virginia, a no- less important, but historically obscured engagement was being conducted in the pine barrens of northern Louisiana. In a year of stellar triumphs by Union armies across the South, the Red River Campaign stands out as a colossal failure. General William Tecumseh Sherman''s scathing summation describes it best, One damn blunder from beginning to end. Taking its title from Sherman''s blunt description, One Damn Blunder from Beginning to End: The Red River Campaign of 1864 is a fresh inspection of what was the Civil War''s largest operation between the Union Army and Navy west of the Mississippi River. In a bold, but poorly managed effort to wrest Louisiana and Texas from Confederate control, a combined force of 40,000 Union troops and 60 naval vessels traveled up the twisting Red River in an attempt to capture the capital city of Shreveport. Gary D. Joiner provides not a recycled telling of the campaign, but a strategic and tactical overview based on a stunning new array of facts gleaned from recently discovered documents. This never-before-published information reveals that the Confederate army had laid a clever trap by engineering a drop in the water level of the Red River to try to maroon the Union naval flotilla. Only the equally amazing ingenuity of the Union troops saved the fleet from certain destruction, despite a humiliating defeat at the Battle of Mansfield. The Red River campaign had lasting implications. One Damn Blunder from Beginning to End magnifies just how devastating the diversion of so many men and so much material to this failed campaign was to the Union effort in the pivotal year of 1864. Because of the Union Army''s failures, Northern plans to capture Mobile were scrapped. Military careers were made and lost. And at time when the Confederacy was teetering on the brink of oblivion, Southern morale was bolstered. Joiner puts together

Revolution in Mexico's Heartland: Politics, War, and State Building in Puebla, 1913-1920

Product : Revolution in Mexico's Heartland: Politics, War, and State Building in Puebla, 1913-1920
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This carefully researched and richly detailed case study explores the most violent phase of the Mexican Revolution in the key state of Puebla. This book explains the tension between the forces that represented the modernizing centralized state and those who revolted and chose local autonomy. Because of its industry, resources, transportation, and large population during the Revolution, Puebla provides an excellent measuring stick for the rest of the nation during this conflict. This diverse region is perhaps as closely representative as any Mexican state because of its indigenous, mestizo, and criollo peoples, its industrial, commercial, and subsistence workers, its urban and rural populations, and both strong Catholic and zealous anti-clerical groups.David G. LaFrance examines politics, warfare, and state building within the context of autonomy, as well as the military, political, and economic changes that occurred in the name of the Revolution. LaFrance also links events at the state level to those of the nation and localities.Puebla''s residents opposed the changes imposed from the outside by the armies of Venustiano Carranza. The concept of autonomy and the degree of resistance of the many groups in Puebla varied, thus leading to limited accommodation with the Carrancistas. LaFrance explains that this compromise provided the means by which the Carrancistas eventually won the wars in Puebla and began the process of creating a new political culture and governing mechanism.Revolution in Mexico''s Heartland is an authoritative text on the Revolution in Puebla until 1920. This book is an invaluable source for readers interested in the history of Mexico and the Mexican Revolution.

Awkward Embrace: The United States And China In The 21st Century

Product : Awkward Embrace: The United States And China In The 21st Century
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>International
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In Awkward Embrace, Phillip Swagel applies his experience at the Treasury Department to show the reader why America''s economic relationship with China has been a beneficial one and details what needs to happen for this trend to continue. Daniel Blumenthal, a former official specializing in Asia at the Department of Defense, is far less optimistic when examining the military, diplomatic, and security ties the United States has-or lacks-with China. China''s overall view of the West-and especially of America-is one of hostility and suspicion. Furthermore, China has engaged in military, diplomatic, and human rights actions that are objectionable to a nation such as the United States, which seeks to encourage the establishment of responsible government worldwide. The tension here is real: how can the United States manage this relationship in a way that keeps its economic engagement with China on a steady course but likewise protects its national security interests? Blumenthal and Swagel offer three possible paths for the U.S.-China relationship. In all of them, they strive to demonstrate how internal forces are shaping China''s interactions with other nations, and, furthermore, how US leaders can attempt to attain a world order that includes a strong China that contributes positively, while nonetheless preparing for the worst-case-scenario of China engaging in more assertive and destabilizing behavior.

Product : The Individual and the Value of Human Life
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The Individual and the Value of Human Life brings to the English-speaking world the ideas of Joseph Popper-Lynkeus, an Austrian philosopher, scientist, and social reformer who enjoyed great fame at the beginning of the 20th century and whose admirers included Einstein, Freud, Ernest Mach, and Karl Raymond Popper. Originally published in Germany in 1910, the book contains the ethical underpinnings of a social philosophy in which the individual is put forward as having inestimable value. Against theorists such as Hegel and Spencer whose writings bristle with contempt for the common man, Popper-Lynkeus puts forward an individualistic ethic that is at once a proposal for a welfare state, a critique of involuntary conscription, a recommendation for penal reform, and a criticism of metaphysics and religion. Haber''s introduction includes a biographical essay and discussion and analysis of the book''s central ideas.

Rediscovering China: Dynamics and Dilemmas of Reform

Product : Rediscovering China: Dynamics and Dilemmas of Reform
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This engrossing and evocative account of the profound changes overtaking China explores the major dilemmas it confronts at the turn of the millennium. Shanghai-born and Western-educated, Cheng Li provides the unique dual perspective of a local resident and a political scientist who returned to his homeland to observe from the grassroots China''s remarkable social transformations. During his travels, Li interviewed people from all walks of life, including local officials, technocrats, entrepreneurs, intellectuals, and migrant laborers. His first-hand account shows how broad changes in rural industrialization, urban privatization, and internal migration have deeply influenced people''s lives and ways of thinking. The magnitude of these transformations is unprecedented in Chinese history. His account brings a sense of immediacy to the crucial issues that have bedeviled the country: official corruption, growing disparities between rich and poor, the halting reform of state-owned enterprises, transportation and infrastructure bottlenecks, and environmental degradation. In rediscovering his native country, full of energy, irony, paradox, and contradiction, Li challenges some mainstream perceptions of China and presents a fresh perspective on U.S.-Sino relations during this period of uncertainty. His clear-eyed and engaging account provides the reader with the sounds and smells, tastes and textures of this rapidly changing country.

The Dynamics of Foreign Policy Analysis: The Carter Administration and the Neutron Bomb

Product : The Dynamics of Foreign Policy Analysis: The Carter Administration and the Neutron Bomb
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In this significant new book, Vincent Auger uses the case of the neutron bomb to examine the development of a dynamic theory of foreign policy analysis during the Carter Administration. The neutron bomb episode, Auger argues, provides a unique opportunity for an analysis of the evolution of internal executive branch decision making. Because the author uses interviews and declassified documents from the Carter Presidential Library which were previously unavailable, this book fills an important gap in the scholarship on the Carter Administration''s foreign policy. As an illustration of how political science theory can be tested in a case study, this book will be invaluable for students and scholars of foreign policy analysis, international relations, and U.S. policy history.

Description : This innovative collection explores the concept of space as it relates to feminist studies. Utilizing a range of theoretical perspectives, a distinguished group of international scholars crosses over the ''thresholds'' of difference, methodology, and representation that challenge feminist geography. The contributors extend our understanding of spatial connections, including the role of social space in the construction of gendered and sexed identities, the need to sensitize feminist methodology to ''place'' contexts, and the importance of examining representations as sociopolitical and spatial artifacts. This volume has broad interdisciplinary appeal while pointing in specific directions for new research areas, new thresholds, within the discipline of geography.
