Remembering The Occupation In French Film: National Identity in Postwar Europe

Product : Remembering The Occupation In French Film: National Identity in Postwar Europe
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : When collective memory is a source of national debate, the public representation of history quickly becomes a locus of controversy and ideological struggle. Remembering the Occupation in French Film explores French identity as it is articulated through cultural representations of Occupied France in French film. This work shows how French film has allowed for a public airing of current concerns through the lens of memory’s recreations of the Occupation. By focusing on the representation of women as the symbol of a collective identity crisis, the author links France’s traditional female icon, Marianne, to the multiple unresolved ambiguities that have continued to plague France’s historical reckoning with the war.

Making American Culture: A Social History, 1900-1920

Product : Making American Culture: A Social History, 1900-1920
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : How is culture made? In a readable style, this book argues that the development of American culture in the twentieth century was the result of a cacophony of influences with a large sociological sweep, from the role of immigrants as a new audience to the intimate circles of artists who forged connections through neighborhoods, popular pubs, and lovers—heterosexual and homosexual—all contributing to an intellectual ferment that was open to new ideas. Patricia Bradley examines how some of these forces impacted the evolution of popular cultural forms such as vaudeville, song, and early film as well as the emergence of modern art, dance, and literary productions. All off these forms were a product of their times and were fueled by the ambition of artists looking to be part of the American success story.

The Route to Power in Nigeria: A Dynamic Engagement Option for Current and Aspiring Leaders

Product : The Route to Power in Nigeria: A Dynamic Engagement Option for Current and Aspiring Leaders
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Proceeding from a longitudinal analysis of Nigeria’s governorship history, The Route to Power in Nigeria shows how personalities have for the most part overwhelmed institutions, to the detriment of the country’s democratic consolidation. While it is customary to hold leaders solely responsible for the predicament of Nigeria’s governorship, M.J. Balogun argues they could not have accomplished the task entirely by themselves. Here we see how the “silent majority”, individuals who exploit weaknesses in the system, and those who have lost hope of casting votes in free elections play important roles in subverting the democratic system in Nigeria.

The Search for New Governance of Higher Education in Asia

Product : The Search for New Governance of Higher Education in Asia
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The present volume sets out in the wider context of globalization to critically examine how selected countries / societies in Asia have responded to the growing pressures of globalization for improving university performance in the global market place. In order to enhance the global competitiveness of their higher education systems, many governments in Asia have started comprehensive reforms and adopted new governance measures to enhance their universities. Incorporation and corporatization have been identified as important strategies to restructure and re-engineer university governance around the world. Contributors in this volume critically examine how the quest for ‘world-class’ university status (as a global movement) has affected the way their universities are governed. Despite the popularity of management reforms and restructuring exercises in line with neoliberalism and managerialism worldwide, whether and how these reforms have actually transformed the heart of the public sector is still subject to debate. This book offers critical reflections on the governance change taking place in the Asian university systems and examines how far the restructuring of higher education governance through incorporation, privatization, and corporatization has really transformed the values and practices of those who work in the higher education sector.

Description : The British Marxist Historians remains the first and most complete study of the founders of one of the most influential contemporary academic traditions in history and social theory.

The British Marxist Historians is an indispensable book for anyone interested in the intellectual history of the late twentieth century.

Product : Learning Policy: Towards The Certified Society
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Learning Policy identifies for the first time a new area of social policy. The distinguishing feature of this new policy is that it integrates education and training with the economy in an unprecedented manner. This integration is undertaken as part of economic development alongside social policies contributing to the reforms of the welfare state. The evolution of such a policy is traced through five phases in England and Wales from the post-war settlement represented by the 1988 Education Act and the 1992 Further and Higher Education Act. In the latest phase of Learning Policy, the New Labour government is seen as moving further toward privatizing education and training at all levels at the same time as using a regionally differentiated education and training system for social control. In conclusion, an alternative direction for education and training is indicated.

How the Troubles Came to Northern Ireland

Product : How the Troubles Came to Northern Ireland
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In this new book about Northern Ireland, historian Peter Rose argues that if Harold Wilson''s government in the late sixties had pursued a different policy, the province might have been spared the troubles. Wilson had promised the Catholics that they would be granted their civil rights. However, new evidence suggests that Westminster was deliberately gagged to prevent MPs demanding that the Stormont administration end discrimination in the province. Had the government acted on intelligence of growing Catholic unrest, it could have prevented the rise of the Provisional IRA without provoking an unmanageable Protestant backlash. This book draws upon recently released official documents and interviews with many key politicians and civil servants of the period to examine the failure of British policy to prevent the troubles.

Memory and History in George Eliot: Transfiguring the Past

Product : Memory and History in George Eliot: Transfiguring the Past
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4

Hao Li offers a series of critical readings informed by 19th century theories and argues for a reappraisal of George Eliot''s complex understanding of the dialectics of memory and history, an understanding that both integrates and transcends the positivist and the romantic-historical approaches of her time.

Stealing Innocence: Youth, Corporate Power And The Politics Of Culture

Product : Stealing Innocence: Youth, Corporate Power And The Politics Of Culture
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Continuing his ongoing social critique, Henry Giroux looks at the way corporate culture is encroaching on the lives of children by exploring three myths prevalent in our society: that the triumph of democracy is related to the triumph of the market; that children are unaffected by power and politics; and that teaching and learning are no longer linked to improving the world. Looking at childhood beauty pageants, school shootings, and the omnipresent nihilistic chic of advertising, Giroux paints a disturbing picture of the world surrounding our children. Ultimately, he turns to the work of Antonio Gramsci, Paulo Freire, and Stuart Hall for lessons on how we can reinstitute a realistic childhood for our children.

Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Fascinated by the idea of Western civilization as being a sequence of numerous misinterpretations and misrepresentations, these 19 essays cover a broad range of topics with the unifying theme being the crossroads where politics and the imagination meet. An essay on linguistics and culture discusses the shaping of Latin America’s collective identity; Peru’s modern history is approached as a bloody battle between enlightenment and darkness; and in critiques of Octavio Paz and Gabriel García Márquez, Ilan Stavans reflects on the dichotomy between pen and sword in the Hispanic world. In Letter to a German Friend, Stavans returns to his fate as a Jew in the Southern Hemisphere, and in The First Book, he connects his passion for literature to his initiation into Jewishness. Finally, in a meditation on Columbus’s afterlife, he reflects on the many ways in which we reinvent ourselves in order to make sense of the chaotic world that surrounds us.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : What would the island of Hispaniola look like if viewed as a loosely connected system? That is the question Haitian-Dominican Counterpoint seeks to answer as it surveys the insular space shared by Haiti and the Dominican Republic throughout their parallel histories. For beneath the familiar tale of hostilities, the systemic perspective reveals a lesser-known, unitarian narrative of interdependencies and reciprocal influences shaping each country''sidentity. In view of the sociocultural and economic linkages connecting thetwo countries, their relations would have to resemble not so much acockfight (the conventional metaphor) as a serial and polyrhythmic counterpoint.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : For most parents, their child''s teenage years are just as bad, if not worse, than the terrible twos. But for Sachiko and Masato Azuma, the situation is further complicated by their son Hikaru''s autism. As puberty strikes, Hikaru''s growing sexual awareness creates uncomfortable and embarrassing situations, and begins to affect his little sister, Kanon. The already-taxed Sachiko must find ways to alleviate the situation, while being mindful of the effects her approach may have on her children and on the people around them. But when Masato is told he has to relocate again for work, the pressure is really on Sachiko as the decision is made to move in with her mother-in-law, who has always been less-than-accommodating to Hikaru''s needs. With new challenges arising daily - Hikaru tackling adolescence through the lens of autism, Kanon struggling with peer pressure, Masato throwing himself into the new job - will Sachiko, the Azuma family''s rock, succumb to the cracks that have begun to form in her generally cheerful outlook on life?

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The first major study of the history of British bad girls, this book uses a wide range of professional, popular, and personal texts to explore the experiences of girls in the 20th century juvenile justice system. It examines the processes leading to their definition as variously delinquent, defective or neglected and analyzes the different possibilities for public and private reform made available to them. It shows how bad girls, though few in number, posed a recurring challenge to established generational and gender orders, and questions the popular contemporary belief that rising delinquency among girls has been the product of late-20th century social changes.

The Feminization Debate In Eighteenth-century England: Literature, Commerce and Luxury

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In the eighteenth century, critics of capitalism denounced the growth of luxury and effeminacy; supporters applauded the increase of refinement and the improved status of women. This pioneering study explores the way the association of commerce and femininity permeated cultural production. It looks at the first use of a female author as an icon of modernity in the Athenian Mercury, and reappraises works by Elizabeth Singer Rowe, Mandeville, Defoe, Pope and Elizabeth Carter. Samuel Richardson''s novels represent the culmination of the English debate, while contemporary essays by David Hume move towards a fully-fledged enlightenment theory of feminization.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The events of September 11th, 2001 altered the course of arms control intended to eliminate weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and made the role of international disarmament organizations controversial. Whether they can effectively verify compliance with the WMD treaty regime has been questioned by the United States. The study examines this by looking at the management of the three existing verification organizations--the International Atomic Energy Agency, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization and the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons--and draws conclusions for a future institution on biological weapons. It presents the IAEA verification system for nuclear weapons as a model for evaluating the systems for chemical and biological weapons. The importance of the IAEA''s role has been recognized by the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize.

That it has failed to do so is neither inevitable nor accidental. It has failed because of a combination of intellectual error and the effects of social and political pressure, which Mills claims could and should have been avoided.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : China is well-known as the largest recipient of foreign direct investment among developing countries. Little is known so far of the fact that China has become (quietly) one of the most significant third world investors in the global economy. This book traces the evolutionary path of China''s outward investment activities and examines the political economy of the rapid rise of China''s global businesses in the context of the economic reforms since 1978. The analysis of changing policy regimes for China''s outward investment is complemented by detailed investigations of the rise and operation of three pioneering Chinese multinationals to illustrate this new thrust of China''s engagement with the global economy. China''s global reach examined in this study explores issues concerning China''s creative responses to globalisation and the processes through which China his becoming a globalised state. The first ever book-length study of China''s global investment activities, this book fills a significant gap in the literature on China''s economic transformation and the rise of multinational corporations from developing countries

The Cool Impossible: The Coach From Born To Run Shows How To Get The Most From Your Miles-and From Yourself

Product : The Cool Impossible: The Coach From Born To Run Shows How To Get The Most From Your Miles-and From Yourself
Category : Books>Sports and Fitness
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Featured in the bestselling book Born to Run, coach and performance guru Eric Orton has spent a lifetime learning and thinking about running and about the limitless possibilities of the human body and mind. In The Cool Impossible, Orton shares his wealth of knowledge in an inspiring step-by-step guide that will open up a new world of achievement for runners of all levels of ability and experience. The truth is: Athleticism is awareness. That simple phrase is at the core of The Cool Impossible. Athleticism requires awareness of form and technique, awareness of our effort level, and, most important, awareness of what we think (and don’t think). And with that awareness comes the possibility of endless potential and improvement, progress and mastery—and, ultimately, achievement that you never before would have thought possible.With a program focused on proper running form, strength development, and cardiovascular training, Orton will help first-step beginners, prime-time competitors, and enduring veterans reach “the cool impossible”—the belief that any achievement, athletic or otherwise, is within our reach. Inside you’ll find:* Foot strength exercises to catapult performance, combat injuries, and transform technique* A total-body strength program aimed at creating an athletic running body* Step-by-step run-form coaching for performance enhancement and lifelong healthy running* A run-training program providing the building blocks for endurance, strength, and speed* No-nonsense nutrition strategies for performance, health, and the ultimate running body* Visualization and mind-training tactics to run and live the Cool Impossible*And much more…Natural running is about so much more than barefoot running. It’s about the joy of running that we were all naturally born with and can reawaken. Like a favorite running companion, The Cool Impossible will be there with you, stride for stride and mile for mile, helping you go farther than you ever could have on your own.Includes a foreword by Christopher McDougall

The Aftermath of Suffrage: Women, Gender, and Politics in Britain, 1918-1945

Product : The Aftermath of Suffrage: Women, Gender, and Politics in Britain, 1918-1945
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This collection explores the aftermath of the Representation of the People Act (1918), which gave some (but not all) British women the vote. Leading experts explore the paths taken by former-suffragists as well as their anti-suffragist adversaries, the practices of suffrage commemoration, and the changing priorities and formations of British feminism in this crucial era. In considering how generational conflict informed the contested legacy of suffragism, these essays examine the impact of universal suffrage on the main political parties. Were the hopes and ambitions invested in women''s and universal enfranchisement realized or dashed? How did those concerned evaluate the outcome as the years wore on? And why did the attainment of full adult male suffrage in 1918 became overshadowed by the seemingly more momentous achievement of women''s suffrage?

The Micro And Meso Levels Of Activism: A Comparative Case Study Of Attac France And Germany

Product : The Micro And Meso Levels Of Activism: A Comparative Case Study Of Attac France And Germany
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The Attac organisations in France and Germany are among the largest, best coordinated and most closely aligned bodies of the anti-globalisation movement that exist today yet there are glaring differences in the manner in which the organisations operate and in how individual members identify and engage with the movement. Through insightful interviews with Attac activists in France and Germany, Daniel Stockemer seeks to understand the significant divergences between the organisations despite their clear ideological parallels as well as the geographical, social and political similarities that exist between the two countries. In doing so this book provides a strong addition to the literature on activist movements on the national and international stage generally through the author''s derivation of engagement patterns for various types of activists and development of a typology of social movement organisations that undercover possible trends in membership. The result is a book that will provide an informative and engaging read for students and scholars of activist movements at both an organisational and individual level.

Citizens, Community and Crime Control

Product : Citizens, Community and Crime Control
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : From reporting crimes to volunteering for the police, it is clear that citizens and communities play fundamental roles in policing and the construction of crime control. Embedded in the examples of police-community consultation, community policing, Neighbourhood Watch, citizen patrols, the Special Constabulary and Police Support Volunteers, this book provides a timely examination of the forms and functions of citizen and community participation in policing.Drawing on thinkers as diverse as Plato and Putnam, Bullock explores the historical circumstances and theoretical sources that have generated ideas about citizen and community participation in crime control. The book considers how these concepts have come to inform government policy and contemporary police practice, and the impact citizen participation has had upon political decision-making, accountability and the promotion of a ''democratic'' police service.Analysing the nature, extent and parameters of citizens'' participation and the problems that participation may produce in practice, this book will be an essential resource for scholars of Policing and Crime Control.

Media Talk and Political Elections in Europe and America

Product : Media Talk and Political Elections in Europe and America
Category : Books>Computers
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book makes an important contribution to the study of political communication. Its chapters provide a detailed analysis of forms of media talk associated with contemporary political elections. The approach is derived from the study of broadcast media talk, which extends here to political communication on the Internet. Key topics include: changing forms of political interview, televised political debates (held in the UK for the first time in 2010), the use of multimedia in promotional discourse, and uses of the Internet to engage with voters (an approach used successfully in the Obama presidential campaigns of 2008 and 2012). In addition to chapters from the UK and USA, there are also contributions from Greece, Spain, Sweden and Austria. Accordingly this book breaks new ground, not only in its coverage of the way politics is communicated to citizens, but also its recognition that in the modern world political culture is increasingly globalised, requiring an international critical perspective.

Product : The Digital Television Revolution: Origins to Outcomes
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Across the globe, nations are switching to digital television at dramatic speed. The technology was in its infancy in the 1990s, but by the end of 2012 about half of the world''s 1.2 billion TV households had converted to digital reception and some thirty nations, including the United Kingdom, had switched off analogue terrestrial television.In analogue television the broadcasters chose what we watched, when and where. With the full switch to digital television, and with broadcasting''s convergence with the Internet, we can make these choices for ourselves. But can we shape those choices or are we at the mercy of technology and market forces? This book describes and analyses the digital television switchover with two broad aims: to show how lessons can be learned and transferred from one country to another, and to inform public debate about media policy during and after the switchover process, empowering citizens to influence and manage the outcomes.

Public Policies in Shared Societies: A Comparative Approach

Product : Public Policies in Shared Societies: A Comparative Approach
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Through various factors from the globalization of skills to wars and refugee movements, societies and communities throughout the world are changing to become increasingly diverse in their racial, ethnic and religious make up. The result is that many governments and societies face a considerable struggle over how to manage community tensions within and between their borders. Through thought-provoking chapters from contributors working in a range of disciplines, Public Policies in Contested Societies explores how everyday processes such as how we organize our working and political lives; develop our policing, health and education systems; protect the environment or respond to cultural differences can all help or hinder such work. Drawing upon examples from over 50 countries, the book shows how many institutions are now adapting their policies and practices to help create more equal, inclusive and peaceful societies. The book is an inspiration and a practical resource for anyone who is interested in helping to shape how future societies can positively welcome the diversity that will be the hallmark of all societies in the decades ahead.
