The Cult of Divine Birth in Ancient Greece

Product : The Cult of Divine Birth in Ancient Greece
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Greek religion is filled with strange sexual artifacts––stories of mortal women''s couplings with gods, rituals like the basilinna''s “marriage” to Dionysus, beliefs in the impregnating power of snakes and deities, and more. In this provocative study, Marguerite Rigoglioso suggests these are remnants of an early Greek cult of divine birth, not unlike that of Egypt. Scouring myth, legend, and history from a female-oriented perspective, she argues that many in the highest echelons of Greek civilization believed non-ordinary conception was the only means possible of bringing forth true leaders, and that special virgin priestesshoods were dedicated to this practice. Her book adds a unique perspective to our understanding of antiquity, and has significant implications for the study of Christianity and other religions in which divine birth claims are central.

Category : Books>Business and Finance>Management and Leadership
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The world of business has undergone unparalleled change in recent years as a result of dramatic social, economic and political events.

This pioneering and practical framework enables senior management to understand, manage and control the risks facing their organizations while exploiting emerging opportunities to gain and maintain competitive advantage. By establishing the wider context of change within business, from the Credit Crunch, the upheaval of the Arab Spring, the uncertainty created by the Euro-zone Crisis and the increasing global influence of social media, the authors explain how and why a revolution is taking place in how organizations are structured, regulated and go to market. This results-focused guide to embedding risk management into strategic and operational decision-making gives executive teams the tools to align their risk-taking to strategy, enabling them to drive sustainable success while operating within appetite.

Product : Egyptian Colloquial Poetry in the Modern Arabic Canon: New Readings Of Shi'r Al-'?mmiyya
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : For centuries, spoken Arabic was kept separate from the language of literary expression, with poetry exclusively the domain of the latter. Today, modern Egyptian colloquial poetry is a robust, sophisticated, and versatile genre, enjoyed by millions. After the eruption of the revolutionary youth movement in Egypt on January 25th, 2011, this genre became one of the vehicles for revolutionary communications. However, it has long been neglected in the critical space. Here, Noha Radwan offers the first book-length study of the emergence, context, and development of modern Egyptian colloquial poetry and situates in among modernist Arab poetry.

Fascism in Italian Cinema since 1945: The Politics and Aesthetics of Memory

Product : Fascism in Italian Cinema since 1945: The Politics and Aesthetics of Memory
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Italy gave us the words ''fascism'' and ''totalitarianism'', yet globally the dominant image of the regime is one of an incompetent dictatorship served by soldiers who ''would not fight for love nor money on account of their languorous Latin character'', as Noel Coward wrote. This book investigates Italian cinema''s contribution to stereotypes of victimhood and innocence, otherwise known as Italiani brava gente, by tracing across the postwar period filmmakers, audiences, censors and the unforgettable characters of Italian cinema. The author casts an innovative eye on classic films like Rome Open City and 1900, and analyses in depth many lesser known works, to tease out recurrent trends and ongoing taboos of representation and assess them in a comparative European perspective. From the desperate resolve of neorealism to the bloated mediocrity of Berlusconian revisionist melodramas, Italian cinema has remembered selectively and silently forgotten the most shameful pages of Italy''s history.

Deconstructing Youth: Youth Discourses at the Limits of Sense

Product : Deconstructing Youth: Youth Discourses at the Limits of Sense
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Young people are regularly cast as a threat to social order. Deconstructing Youth argues that this is due in part to the way the notion of youth is conceptualised in Western society. Drawing on Derridean deconstruction, Gabriel analyses the limits of dominant youth discourses, revealing the ways in which common sense assumptions about young people are marked by contradictory expectations that actually function to create youth as a ''problem''. With case studies on youth sexuality, violence and developmental neuroscience, she details how these contradictions go unrecognised in attempts to make sense of young people''s identities and actions. Gabriel argues that this leads to the misattribution of blame to young people who are then taken to operate outside the boundaries of acceptable conduct. In response, she considers what a deconstructive approach has to offer in terms of moving beyond these conceptual limits and in opening up to more enabling possibilities for understanding youth.

Positioning Gender In Discourse: A Feminist Methodology

Product : Positioning Gender In Discourse: A Feminist Methodology
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Positioning Gender in Discourse: A Feminist Methodology introduces a newly emerging approach to the analysis of talk. Feminist Poststructuralist Discourse Analysis (FPDA) offers a means of analyzing the ways in which speakers construct their gendered identities within a complex web of power relations. The FPDA approach challenges the traditional feminist view that females are often disempowered within mixed-sex settings. The FPDA approach to analyzing talk shows that both male and female speakers constantly shift between positions of powerfulness and powerlessness--even within the same conversation. The methodology is demonstrated through a study of teenagers'' conversations in class and a study of senior managers'' discussions in business meetings, concluding with suggestions that while female speakers are often silenced by dominant social discourses, they are far from being uniformly powerless.

Rethinking Trafficking In Women: Politics Out of Security

Product : Rethinking Trafficking In Women: Politics Out of Security
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : What should be done about trafficking in women? This book argues that the question to be asked is, ''What cannot be done about trafficking in women?'' Exploring the complex relationship between security, subjectivity and politics, Aradau argues that security practices reproduce a politics of unfreedom and inequality. Politics out of security, on the contrary, is formulated around universality, equality and freedom. In the situation of trafficking, the equality and universality of work disrupt the specification of difference and of particularized subjectivity upon which security practices rely. Aradau emphasizes that the reduction of politics to security limits struggles for equality and freedom and entrenches divisions and boundaries in the world.

The Myth of the Chemical Cure: A Critique of Psychiatric Drug Treatment

Product : The Myth of the Chemical Cure: A Critique of Psychiatric Drug Treatment
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book exposes the traditional view that psychiatric drugs correct chemical imbalances as a dangerous fraud. It traces the emergence of this view and the way it supported the vested interests of the psychiatric profession, the pharmaceutical industry and the modern state. Instead it is proposed that psychiatric drugs ''work'' by creating abnormal brain states, which are often unpleasant and impair normal intellectual and emotional functions along with other harmful consequences. Research on antipsychotics, antidepressants and mood stabilisers is examined to demonstrate this thesis and it is suggested that acknowledging the real nature of psychiatric drugs would lead to a more democratic practice of psychiatry.

Chronic Poverty: Concepts, Causes and Policy

Product : Chronic Poverty: Concepts, Causes and Policy
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Based on over a decade of research by the Chronic Poverty Research Centre, this volume analyses the challenges to be met if global extreme poverty is to be eradicated. Building on case studies from Bangladesh, Ethiopia, India and Uganda, it includes material on poverty dynamics, the inter-generational transmission of poverty, the importance of building assets and reducing vulnerability, the critical nature of conflict as a cause of impoverishment and chronic poverty, and new thinking about the close relationship between social exclusion and adverse incorporation. Current policy does not adequately support pathways out of poverty: neither the positives of getting a good job, or building assets, nor the negatives of preventing setbacks along the way. While social protection is increasingly on the policy agenda by way of preventing extreme setbacks, the pro-poorest economic growth and labour market policies, the rounded approach to providing enough education to poor children, all need much greater policy makers'' attention. Policy makers also need to consider the norms which govern social groups and inter-group social relationships which determine how people make use of assets and capabilities, and how to change those norms where they are problematic for socio-economic mobility, or lead to conflict.

Category : Books

Description : State Recognition and Democractization in Sub-Saharan Africa explores the link between liberal-style democratization and state recognition of traditional authority in Sub-Saharan Africa. Being critical and empirically grounded, the book explores the complex, often counter-balancing consequences of the involvement of traditional authority in the wave of democratization and liberal-style state-building that has rolled over sub-Saharan Africa in the past decade. It scrutinizes how, in practice, traditional leaders are being drawn into governance in Mozambique, Zambia, Namibia, Malawi, Burkina Faso, and the Somali region of Ethiopia, and relates these developments to state governance in the declining democracy of Zimbabwe and the emerging state of Northern Somalia.

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : How should wars end? What outcomes are morally acceptable, and what ways of making peace should participants and observers find distasteful? Drawing on many of the wars and peaces of recent decades—wars whose muddled conduct and courses have already reshaped the political theory of warfare—this book offers a persuasive new perspective on postwar justice. It argues that wars should end in "a better state of peace," a peace stabler and more just than the one before the war began. It asks: When should a war of secession end in the founding of a new country? What is a right outcome to a war fought for territory? And what kinds of political institutions can both protect vital political rights and nourish stability once the fighting ends? This lucid and groundbreaking book explores the outer limits of the idea that it is worth paying almost any price for peace.

Governing Cities In A Global Era: Urban Innovation, Competition, and Democratic Reform

Product : Governing Cities In A Global Era: Urban Innovation, Competition, and Democratic Reform
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Written in a lively and accessible style by leading scholars from eleven countries this is the first global book to provide a thorough examination of the urban challenges now facing city leaders and managers in all continents. The text is organized into three parts: the global pressures now impacting urban governance; the innovations currently taking place in urban government; and the heartland themes of leadership, partnership and the democratic challenge. The analysis suggests that global forces pose a grave threat to civilized living - the pursuit of narrow self-interest could drive all cities into a spiral of decline resulting in consumers living isolated lives in separate fortified enclaves. All the authors in this volume reject this vision of our urban future. Instead, by analyzing place-specific experiences and offering new insights on the dynamics of urban change, they propose imaginative routes for reform. This book argues for strategies that can lead to prosperous multi-cultural cities across the world - cities that enhance the quality of life for all citizens.

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Winner of the Choice Outstanding Academic Title! Ann Kelly’s provocative book breaks the mold of Swift studies. 20th-century scholars have tended to assess Jonathan Swift as a pillar of the 18th-century “republic of letters, a conservative, even reactionary voice upholding classical values against the welling tide of popularization in literature. Kelly’s Swift is instead a practical exponent of the popular and impresario of the literary image. She argues that Swift turned his back on the elite to write for a popular audience, and that he annexed scandals to his fictionalized print alter ego, creating a continual demand for works by or about this self-mythologized figure. A fascinating look at popular print media, the commodification of the author, culture formation, and modern myth making, this book opens new ground in our understanding of one of the greatest English writers.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The repressive climate of racial hatred in America that spawned the 1960s civil rights movement also galvanized a generation of bold, persuasive, driven leaders who embodied the qualities of servant leadership. In a time of conflict, turmoil, and tragedy, these passionate and committed African Americans emerged to lead a generation from the cruelties of segregation to the revolution of civil rights reform. Beginning with the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court case, Servants of the People follows the lives of eight leaders--figures such as A. Philip Randolph, Adam Clayton Powell Jr., Fannie Lou Hamer, and Ella Baker--who willingly risked their lives for their cause. This revised edition also reflects on the dramatic changes in the African American political landscape since its initial publication, and expands its scope to include more of the women whose efforts were crucial to the success of the civil rights movement.

The Global Contemporary And The Rise Of New Art Worlds

Product : The Global Contemporary And The Rise Of New Art Worlds
Category : Books>Art and Architecture>Art History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The geography of the visual arts changed with the end of the Cold War. Contemporary art was no longer defined, exhibited, interpreted, and acquired according to a blueprint drawn up in New York, London, Paris, or Berlin. The art world distributed itself into art worlds. With the emergence of new art scenes in Asia and the Middle East and the explosion of biennials, the visual arts have become globalized as surely as the world economy has. This book offers a new map of contemporary art''s new worlds. The Global Contemporary and the Rise of New Art Worlds documents the globalization of the visual arts and the rise of the contemporary over the last twenty years. Lavishly illustrated, with color throughout, it tracks developments ranging from exhibition histories and the rise of new art spaces to art''s branding in such emerging markets as Hong Kong and the Gulf States. Essays treat such subjects as curating after the global turn; art and the migration of pictures; the end of the canon; and new strategies of representation.

The Multilingual Turn: Implications For Sla, Tesol, And Bilingual Education

Product : The Multilingual Turn: Implications For Sla, Tesol, And Bilingual Education
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Drawing on the latest developments in bilingual and multilingual research,The Multilingual Turnoffers a critique of, and alternative to, still-dominant monolingual theories, pedagogies and practices in SLA, TESOL, and bilingual education.  Critics of the ¿monolingual bias¿ argue that notions such as the idealized native speaker, and related concepts of interlanguage, language competence, and fossilization, have framed these fields inextricably in relation to monolingual speaker norms. In contrast, these critics advocate an approach that emphasizes the multiple competencies of bi/multilingual learners as the basis for successful language teaching and learning.This volume takes a big step forward in re-situating the issue of multilingualism more centrally in applied linguistics and, in so doing, making more permeable its key sub-disciplinary boundaries ¿ particularly, those between SLA, TESOL, and bilingual education. It addresses this issue head on, bringing together key international scholars in SLA, TESOL, and bilingual education to explore from cutting-edge interdisciplinary perspectives what a more critical multilingual perspective might mean for theory, pedagogy, and practice in each of these fields.

After they’re wrenched apart, a cryptic email arrives in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve, beginning a desperate pursuit and a look back over their tumultuous romance. Will they find each other before the night is over, or will they be torn apart forever?

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Written by a leading team of authors, Do We Need HR? explores the position of HR, asking pivotal questions such as: does making HR a separate business function still make sense? Should HR return to a narrower personnel role? Should key areas like talent management be relocated to leadership and management units outside of HR?The authors present a picture of what new lean HR structures might look like, arguing that in the tough current environment, HR could be facing diffusion or even disintegration as a result of new types of organizational design, business knowledge, and cross functional networks. Drawing upon exclusive research and interviews with HR directors, this expert team examines the challenges facing HR departments and provides actionable advice for managers contemplating the nature of HR in their own organizations.

Bisexuality: Identities, Politics, And Theories

Product : Bisexuality: Identities, Politics, And Theories
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Bisexuality has been largely erased from studies of sexuality and gender, and people who desire others of more than one gender often remain invisible. This book sets a new agenda for considering sexualities and genders, by focusing on the lives of people who are bisexual or who have other identities that are not heterosexual, lesbian or gay, in an international context.What are bisexual people''s lived experiences? How can these be understood using social and political theories? What are the implications of bisexuality for future theorising and research? In addressing these and other questions, this book maps out under-explored territory. It does so by looking at topical themes, including sex and relationships, community, the commodification of bisexuality, and activism. The book also shows how understandings of bisexuality can usefully inform the social sciences in areas such as identity construction, social inequalities, postcolonial relations, and citizenship.

Protest and Organization in the Alternative Globalization Era: NGOs, Social Movements, and Political Parties

Product : Protest and Organization in the Alternative Globalization Era: NGOs, Social Movements, and Political Parties
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Protest and Organization in the Alternative Globalization Era examines the development of anticorporate, prodemocracy movements over the last two decades, from the Alternative Globalization Movement and World Social Forum that ushered in the 21st century, to today''s massive Arab Spring, Eurozone crisis, and Occupy Wall Street. The book locates the root causes of global recession, runaway debt, and severe social inequality that precipitated these movements within political-economic systems established decades earlier, offering a critical account of neoliberal capitalism''s utter incompatibility with democratic freedom. It focuses on contests over the development of economic alternatives, social transformation, and political organization among the most prominent tendencies on the global Left, as well as the challenges they face in collectively developing new, egalitarian social institutions and democratic political programs. The result is a highly nuanced account of struggles that function as a vital counterforce to illegitimate governments and corporate power.

Filicide-Suicide: The Killing of Children in the Context of Separation, Divorce and Custody Disputes

Product : Filicide-Suicide: The Killing of Children in the Context of Separation, Divorce and Custody Disputes
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book explores the phenomenon of children being suddenly and often brutally killed by parents who have invariably professed their love for them. It reviews 128 cases of filicide in the UK between 1994 and 2012. The cases are presented in a way in which the magnitude of each tragedy is acknowledged. Very often in these cases, relationships between the parents are disintegrating, or, parents have already separated in an atmosphere of bitterness and hostility. Professionals may be involved trying to ensure that the children are not being used and exploited by either parent. Custody and access is usually a major source of tension. The book identifies relationship and family patterns in which the situation may rapidly deteriorate, and a parent may begin to perceive the child''s life as the ultimate weapon in the dispute with their partner. O''Hagan explores the legal contexts which provide guidance for the key agencies involved. He provides frameworks for assessment derived from actual cases, and considers the implications for frontline workers.This book will be a valuable resource for criminology and social work scholars as well as practitioners, trainers and managers working in the fields of social work, child protection and law.

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The internet has revolutionised the way we live our lives in untold ways, but the most far-reaching is the impact it is having on the way we communicate.

And how we communicate online has a profound and lasting impact on language and society. This very timely book brings together a broad selection of the exciting and diverse research that is currently being conducted into language on social media sites including Facebook, Twitter, and TripAdvisor. Studies from leading language researchers, and those at the cutting edge of analysis into social media, explore the impact of social media on how we relate to each other, the communities we live in, and the way we manage and present a sense of self in twenty-first century society.

Commonplace Diversity:  Social Relations in a Super-Diverse Context

Product : Commonplace Diversity: Social Relations in a Super-Diverse Context
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Urban areas in the UK and beyond have seen significant changes in patterns of immigration, leading to profound diversification. This diversification is characterized by not only the multiplication of people of different national origins, but also differentiations regarding migration histories, religions, educational backgrounds, legal statuses and socio-economic backgrounds. How has this diversification of diversity, also described as ''super-diversity'', impacted on social life on the local level? How do people get along in a context where almost everybody comes from elsewhere? This book presents an in-depth study of super-diversity on the local level. Drawing on ethnographic fieldwork in the London Borough of Hackney, Wessendorf shows that diversity in this context has become commonplace. Rather than experiencing it as something particularly unusual, local residents see diversity as a&nbsp;normal part of everyday life. This book presents a vivid account of the daily doings and social relations among Hackney''s residents and how they pragmatically negotiate difference in their everyday lives.

Towards a New Understanding of Sraffa: Insights from Archival Research

Product : Towards a New Understanding of Sraffa: Insights from Archival Research
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Towards a New Understanding of Sraffa examines the legacy of Piero Sraffa by approaching his ideas in a new light, thanks to the insights gained from the opening of the archive collection of his papers at the Wren Library (Trinity College, Cambridge, UK). It provides a refreshing perspective into Sraffa''s approach to money, the role of equilibrium and of the surplus in economic theory.   The study is backed by previously unpublished, original, archival material. It provides an appraisal of the discontinuities in the path leading to the publication in 1960 of Production of Commodities by Means of Commodities since its conception in the late 1920s. It unlocks significant new perspectives about the connection of Sraffa to Marx regarding Standard commodity, the macro-social and monetary theory of exploitation, the tendency of the rate of profit to fall, and the transformation of values into prices of production. It also offers insights on how Sraffa dealt with money in the various phases of his thinking, and explores his ideas about the role of equilibrium and of the surplus in economic theory. It concludes with an account of some recent Sraffa scholarship and points towards future research avenues.

Description : Queer Nostalgia in Cinema and Pop Culture explores popular representations of queer nostalgia in films, animation and music videos as means of empowerment, re-evaluating and recreating lost gay youth, coming to terms with one''s sexual otherness and homoerotic desires, celebrating queer counterculture, and creatively challenging homophobia, chauvinism, ageism and racism. In particular, Queer Nostalgia engages in a critical discussion of nostalgia-in-motion, the significance of ''femininostlagia'' (gay men''s effeminate nostalgia), the intricate relationship between queer nostalgia, martyrdom and emergent queer mythology, the contribution of nostalgia to ''autoqueerography'' (queer autobiography inspired by women''s dissident autobiography or ''autogynography''), and the interrelationship between ethnic and queer nostalgias.

Technology and Touch: The Biopolitics of Emerging Technologies

Product : Technology and Touch: The Biopolitics of Emerging Technologies
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies>Current Events
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Technology and Touch addresses the development of a range of new touch technologies, both technologies that we reach out to touch (like iPhones and iPads) and technologies that touch us (such as new prosthetics, smart clothing and robots). Cranny-Francis explores how this development helps us to connect with and understand our world, and ourselves. This everyday practice, or biopolitics of touch, is exemplified in a range of art works that deploy touch and allow us to examine the nature of being and of meaning. Cranny-Francis also refers the biopolitics of touch to the study of new touch technologies, exploring their capacity to have us reflect on old fears and prejudices, as well as challenging our incorporation into technologies and networks that may be unethical or deeply compromised.

From Chinese Brand Culture to Global Brands: Insights from aesthetics, fashion and history

Product : From Chinese Brand Culture to Global Brands: Insights from aesthetics, fashion and history
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : An insightful exploration of the global growth of Chinese brands that presents a unique Chinese perspective on history and culture in branding. China''s growing economic power is an established fact, but why have Chinese brands so far been unable to translate success at home to international recognition? Including case studies such as: the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremony, arguably the most expensive branding effort in recent memory; and Shanghai Tang, a global fashion brand with aesthetic roots in Chinese historical culture, From Chinese Brand Culture to Global Brands is an expert and insightful look at Chinese brand culture and its capacity to serve as a complement to existing models of brand globalization. Rather than explore Western branding in Chinese contexts, this book shows how some successful Chinese brands that are reaching a global audience build upon significant aspects of Chinese culture and history. From Chinese Brand Culture to Global Brands examines how Chinese brands are perceived both internationally and in China, and argues that branding strategy that draws upon a more self-consciously Chinese aesthetic would leave Chinese brand culture poised for global success.

It sheds light on how we can actually build more humanistic organizations with the help of integrity. The authors shed light on leadership, governance, personal development and further implementation issues when companies aim for more humanism in business and management.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Investigations into how the brain actually works have led to remarkable discoveries of late, and these findings carry profound implications for interpreting literature. John Donne''s probing insights, expressed in his unique Metaphysical style, make his amorous verse a ripe subject for cognitive analysis. This study applies recent breakthroughs from neuroscience and evolutionary psychology in order to deepen our understanding of Songs and Sonnets. By applying findings from neurolinguistics to Donne''s work, Michael Winkleman presents a test case for the cognitive interpretation of verse and, more broadly, advances the case of New Humanism.

Product : The labour markets of emerging economies: Has growth translated into more and better jobs?
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Economics>Economic Conditions
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The past few decades have witnessed the economic and geopolitical rise of a number of large middle-income countries around the world, which have to varying degrees embarked on a rapid path to economic development. This volume focuses on the labour market situations, trends and regulations in these emerging economies, examining how they have dealt with both short-term issues, namely the global financial crisis, and longer-term structural challenges. Despite the economic progress made, improvements in the labour market have not been as impressive. Informality, working poverty and vulnerable employment continue to be the norm for most workers in these countries. Part I of the volume compares labour market trends and the institutional and regulatory environments, referencing a range of countries including China and India. Part II includes in-depth case studies of Brazil, Indonesia, South Africa and Turkey. Overall, the volume shows that countries with effective policies and institutions in place are better equipped to tackle labour market challenges.

Children and Borders

Product : Children and Borders
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This edited collection brings together scholars whose work explores the entangled relationship between children and borders with richly-documented ethnographic studies from around the world. The book provides a penetrating account of how borders affect children''s lives and how in turn children play a constitutive role in the social life of borders. Providing situated accounts which offer critical perspectives on children''s engagements with borders, contributors explore both the institutional power of borders as well as children''s ability to impact borders through their own activity and agency. They show how borders and the borderlands surrounding them are active zones of engagement where notions of identity, citizenship and belonging are negotiated in ways that empower or disempower children, offer them possibilities and hope or alternatively deprive them of both. With innovative cross-fertilization between Border Studies and Childhood Studies, this volume illustrates the value of bringing children and borders together.

Globalization, Culture, and Branding: How to Leverage Cultural Equity for Building Iconic Brands in the Era of Globalization

Product : Globalization, Culture, and Branding: How to Leverage Cultural Equity for Building Iconic Brands in the Era of Globalization
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : With globalization, the marketplace is becoming increasingly complex for marketers to navigate, bringing dramatic changes to both the supply (i.e., brands that are offered) and demand (i.e., consumers'' values and desires) sides of markets. A proliferation of global brands from developed and emerging economies brings diverse cultures to a consumer population that is also growing culturally diverse. Torelli illustrates how marketers can take advantage of these seismic changes and leverage cultural equity for building iconic brands in the era of globalization. Drawing from novel theoretical insights into social psychology, cultural psychology, and marketing, Globalization, Culture, and Branding provides guidelines for imbuing brands with culturally symbolic meanings that can create deep psychological bonds with multi-cultural consumers. Unlike past publications that conducted broad reviews of international or global marketing best-practices, Torelli''s book zooms in on the issues involved in growing and protecting brand equity in multi-cultural markets.

Description : The Peace of Westphalia, which brought to a close the Thirty Years War, is arguably the most important treaty signed before the twentieth century. It was a signal event of the early modern era, thoroughly of its time even as it prefigured the radical political developments of subsequent centuries. This sweeping, exhaustively researched history is the first comprehensive account of the treaty and its wider significance to appear in the English language. Bringing together the latest scholarship with an engaging narrative, it retraces the European situation leading up to the Congress of Westphalia, exploring its political and intellectual underpinnings and placing it in a broad global and chronological context. In doing so, it definitively fills a massive lacuna in the scholarly literature while offering fascinating insights into the long historical transition to modernity.

Description : The business cycle is a complex phenomenon. On the surface, it involves a multitude of mechanisms, such as oscillations in interest rates, prices, wages, unemployment, output, and spending. But a deeper understanding requires a unifying theory to make these various parts whole. Money, Banking, and the Business Cycle provides a comprehensive framework for analyzing these mechanisms, and offers a robust prescription for reducing financial instability over the long-term. Volume I bridges economic theory with empirical evidence. Simpson reveals the origins of the business cycle through the impact of government regulation on the supply of money and credit.

Olympic Ceremonialism and The Performance of National Character: From London 2012 to Rio 2016

Product : Olympic Ceremonialism and The Performance of National Character: From London 2012 to Rio 2016
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In recent decades ceremonies stood in Olympiads as both vehicles of cultural values and shows embracing the banal and the everyday. But how much do we understand them as forms of public art? This book examines the London 2012 opening and closing ceremonies and the handover event to Rio for the 2016 Olympics as articulations of national and cosmopolitan belonging. It is argued that embodied and projected performances of Britishness and Brazilianness embraced both artistic styles and the contemporary digital turn, refinement and banality. Combinations of art and technology reflected a vision of humanity in motion complying with the Olympic values of fairness, beauty and embodied well-being. The three ceremonial performances supported imaginative travel on stage, on big screens and in musical genres. This travel, at once mediated, embodied and experiential, created an ideal form of ''human'': a tornadóros. A creative worker and a tourist, the tornadóros manipulates audio-visual narratives of culture and identity for global Olympic audiences. Spanning Sociology, Sports Studies, Culture and Media Studies, Performance Studies and Tourism Studies, this is a highly interdisciplinary and original perspective on the Olympics.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : A welcome addition to Palgrave''s Global Media Policy and Business series, Internet Governance and the Global South documents the role of the global south in Internet policymaking and challenges the globalization theories that declared the death of the state in global decision-making. Abu Bhuiyan argues that the global Internet politics is primarily a conflict between the states - the United States of America and the states of the global south - because the former controls Internet policymaking. The states of the global south have been both oppositional and acquiescing to the sponsored policies of the United States on Internet issues such as digital divide, multilingualism, intellectual property rights and cyber security. They do not oppose the neoliberal underpinnings of the policies promoted by the United States, but ask for an international framework to govern the Internet so that they can work as equal partners in setting norms for the global Internet.

Ordinary Psychosis and The Body: A Contemporary Lacanian Approach

Product : Ordinary Psychosis and The Body: A Contemporary Lacanian Approach
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : What is psychosis? How do we recognise it? Is it treatable? These deceptively simple questions point to complex problems that have occupied clinicians for centuries. In today''s consulting rooms - perhaps more than ever before - clinicians are faced with a broad array of difficult to diagnose patients with demanding treatment challenges. One response to the problem of diagnostic uncertainty is to revisit the rich psychiatric and psychoanalytic literature on milder psychosis, a category marginalised in&nbsp;today''s psychiatry. This book draws on contemporary theories of psychosis developed by Lacanian theorists in the World Association of Psychoanalysis to examine body disturbances in milder forms of psychosis. By focussing on body phenomena in conjunction with three practical elements of treatment - the onset of psychosis, psychotic states, and stabilisation - Jonathan D. Redmond shows that the problem of embodiment made evident by psychosis should be central to clinical assessment and treatment possibilities.

Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Colonial Girlhood in Literature, Culture and History, 1840-1950 explores a range of real and fictional colonial girlhood experiences from Jamaica, Mauritius, South Africa, India, New Zealand, Australia, England, Ireland, and Canada to reflect on the transitional state of girlhood between childhood and adulthood. The interconnected themes of colonialism, empire, gender, race, and class show how colonial girls occupy ambivalent positions in British and settler societies between 1840 and 1950. Although girlhood is often linked to freedom, independence, novelty, and modernity, it may also represent an idea that needs to be contained and controlled to serve the needs of the nation. Across national boundaries, the malleability of colonial girlhoods is evident. Drawing on a range of approaches including history, anthropology, and literary and cultural studies, this book reflects on the complexities of girlhood during the colonial era.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Did colonialism, a world-historical catastrophe, inflict only material damage on the colonized, or did it cause psychic injury as well? What would it mean, then, to read postcolonial writings under the prism of trauma? In History, Trauma, and Healing in Post-Colonial Narratives, Ifowodo tackles these questions through a psycho-social examination of the lingering impact of imperialist domination. His hybrid method that encompasses historicism, psychoanalysis and a realist concept of linguistic reference stakes a bold, new ground in postcolonial studies. The focus is trans-continental and the analysis centered on primary texts that explore the African, African-American, and Caribbean experience of slavery/colonialism. The result is a refreshing and necessary complement to the cultural-materialist studies that dominate the field.

Product : Good Pharma: The Public-Health Model of the Mario Negri Institute
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Drawing on key concepts in sociology and management, this history describes a remarkable institute that has elevated medical research and worked out solutions to the troubling practices of commercial pharmaceutical research. Good Pharma is the answer to Goldacre''s Bad Pharma, ethical research without commercial distortions that mislead doctors and patients. This extended case history of the Mario Negri Institute describes how a brilliant young researcher, Silvio Garattini, and a boldly imaginative philanthropist, Mario Negri, conceived of an independent, ethics-based research institute to develop better medicines for patients. It may sounds obvious; yet patent-based research usually develops minor variations. This book describe the Institute''s influence on founding the WHO Essential Medicines List, nurturing the Cochrane Collaboration, and reforming European regulations to reduce commercial influences and increase transparency. The Mario Negri model for pharmacological research and policy offers an alternative to today''s costly, wasteful drug development with few benefits for patients. A revolution is needed.

British Foreign Policy and the National Interest: Identity, Strategy and Security

Product : British Foreign Policy and the National Interest: Identity, Strategy and Security
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : For over a decade, British foreign policy has been criticised for lacking strategic thinking. Academics describe a ''strategy gap'' and note that old ideas about Britain''s role in the world continue to be recycled even today. This collection aims to address this issue by re-examining the ideas of Britain''s national interest and their impact on strategy, to challenge current thinking and practice in the making of foreign policy.Applying interdisciplinary approaches to British foreign policy, this volume analyses a range of issues asking: Whose interests does British foreign policy serve? Is the national interest a useful explanatory tool for foreign policy analysts? How can policymakers reconnect with this idea to devise better strategies to cope with the complex policy environment of the twenty-first century? Drawing on links between academics, policymakers and other stakeholders, it provides a practical discussion of theories on global change, globalization, ethics, and security to enliven debate about how to forge a foreign policy that advances the interests of the UK whilst also holding policy-makers and officials to account for their actions.

Description : The Christian College and the Meaning of Academic Freedom is a study of the past record and current practice of the Protestant colleges in America in the quest to achieve intellectual honesty within academic community. William C. Ringenberg lays out the history of academic freedom in higher education in America, including its European antecedents, from the perspective of modern Christian higher education.

Anti-Social Behaviour in Britain: Victorian and Contemporary Perspectives

Product : Anti-Social Behaviour in Britain: Victorian and Contemporary Perspectives
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Anti-social behaviour is a key issue in the social and political life of Britain in the twenty-first century, as were respectability and immorality in the Victorian era. Written by expert sociologists, historians, criminologists and political scientists, this interdisciplinary collection examines anti-social behaviour from a range of historical and contemporary perspectives. The volume compares two essential themes, firstly the forms of anti-social behaviour and secondly the methods employed by governments to repress and control anti-social behaviour. Compelling parallels emerge through the interrelated chapters, which are divided into three main areas: the urban environment and public spaces, the vulnerable and the marginalised and recreation and leisure. This comprehensive collection is the first to examine anti-social behaviour from such an inclusive and wide-ranging position. It establishes clear parallels between the two periods regarding types of ASB and how they have been dealt with by successive governments, arguing that anti-social behaviour and political responses to it are by no means new phenomena.

Catholic Women's Movements in Liberal and Fascist Italy

Product : Catholic Women's Movements in Liberal and Fascist Italy
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : In the early 1900s the Catholic Church appealed, for the first time in its history, directly to women to reassert its religious, political and social relevance in Italian society in a battle against liberalism, socialism and modern society. This gave rise to a Christian feminist movement which was soon suppressed because it went beyond its intended welfare brief in order to embrace women''s rights issues. The succeeding conservative Catholic women''s movements were founded to exercise control over women and mobilize them against secular feminism. This book examines how these became highly successful because of their symbiotic relationship with the clergy and, later, accommodation with fascism, and how they appealed to large numbers of women through their ability to address their needs for fellowship, solidarity and public roles in welfare and social organization. Dawes shows that paradoxically,&nbsp;while finding fulfilment in entrenching patriarchal values of the Church in Italian society, the conservative women''s movements cast away any true leadership on matters which could have improved the condition of women.

The Uses and Misuses of Human Rights: A Critical Approach to Advocacy

Product : The Uses and Misuses of Human Rights: A Critical Approach to Advocacy
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Most of the academic literature on human rights seeks to identify and explain instances of use and abuse. Less emphasis has been placed on examining cases of misuse, namely actions undertaken by sincere and devoted advocates of human rights that unintentionally undermine international norms, adversely affect the wellbeing of intended beneficiaries, or violate others'' human rights. Addressing both uses and misuses of human rights, this volume seeks to fill an important gap. It offers an analytical framework and a series of case studies that draw attention to the intended and unintended consequences of advocacy work. Emphasizing the challenges to the effective and proper use of human rights norms, processes, and mechanisms, it tries to identify strategies and contexts that enable human rights advocacy to work in favor of human rights, as intended, as well as situations in which such advocacy may backfire or unintentionally cause harm. Since the improvement of human rights conditions is ultimately contingent on a better understanding of the strengths and limitations of the human rights discourse and the context in which it is used, being cognizant of unintended negative impacts would lead to the design and execution of more effective advocacy strategies.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : From the perspective of the tutor, teaching a language one-to-one is not just one more way of doing what classroom teachers do. With only one learner, it is possible to give serious attention to principles of second language acquisition such as motivation, error treatment, and learner autonomy, which are more difficult to address in classroom learning. One-on-One Language Teaching and Learning brings together a strong theoretical framework with practical suggestions and actual experiences of language learners and tutors from around the world. It applies research in the field of language acquisition and teaching to issues like building a strong tutor-student relationship, working with multilingual learners, and learning various skills and strategies. The book will be valuable for tutors of many languages, not only English, as well as learners who wants to take a more active role in one-on-one learning.

The Militarization of Childhood: Thinking Beyond the Global South

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Thinking beyond the global South and recognizing that militarism circulates and interpenetrates childhood experience in ways that are much less conspicuous than child soldiering raises questions of critical relevance to but not yet taken up in the disciplinary study of international relations. The contributors to this volume inquire into the relationship between militarism and childhood in advanced (post)industrial societies and ask what can be learned about its sources and implications. Together they provide an important corrective to too narrow a focus on zones of conflict that might make it seem as though militarism operates through the lives of children only in distant and politically fraught places.

Rosa Luxemburg: Theory of Accumulation and Imperialism

Product : Rosa Luxemburg: Theory of Accumulation and Imperialism
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This translated volume of Tadeusz Kowalik''s Rosa Luxemburg examines the theorist''s contribution to economic theory. Part I discusses the dependence of capital accumulation on effective demand and also on specific capitalist barriers to growth. Part II is devoted to the relationship between capital accumulation and economic (and political) imperialism. Luxemburg''s analysis is contrasted to the underconsumptionist theory of capitalist crisis that prevailed among her critics. Although Kowalik recognizes Luxemburg''s analysis as incomplete, he argues that she correctly identified the realization of surplus as the key constraint on expanded production in capitalism. This then points to a reinterpretation of Kalecki and Keynes, placing their analyses in a clear line of descent from Marx. Kalecki''s analysis of militarism neatly complements Luxemburg''s analysis, while Kowalik identifies neo-colonialism as a type of Luxemburg imperialism, providing markets that allow for the realisation of profits in the advanced capitalist countries. Toporowski and Szymborska''s accessible translation of Tadeusz Kowalik''s masterpiece will appeal to professional economists, scholars, researchers and students of the history of economic thought and economic theory.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Based on field research and archival study, this book offers an in-depth exploration of the religious foundations, political and social significance, and aesthetic aspects of the theatre created by several of the most influential leaders of the Occult Revival: Katherine Tingley, Rudolf Steiner, Marie Steiner-von Sivers, Aleister Crowley, Alexander Mathews, and Gerald Gardner. The Occult Revival was an international surge of interest in the supernatural, magic, and Eastern mysticism that thrived in Europe and the United States between the late nineteenth-century and the mid-twentieth-century. By studying the theatre that was developed in affiliation with occult movements, this book shows how theatre contributed to the complication and fragmentation of Western religious culture during the turn-of-the-century Occult Revival and how theatre continues to play a part in the development of occult rituals and beliefs.

Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book examines the striking way in which medical and scientific work on hearing in eighteenth and nineteenth-century France helped to shape modern French society and culture. Contemporary scientists and anatomists had to come to terms with a new kind of transformative physiology within the material site of the human ear, one that had the potential to construct space and place in the most powerful way imaginable. Auditory medical specialists found themselves at the center of pivotal philosophical, political and social debates on how the individual citizen might use their ears to reach out to those around them constructing broader, protective models of social reform. Sykes makes the case that of all the senses hearing offered the greatest resources for remodelling the idea of the universal human condition within the modern French historical setting.

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Fegelein''s Horsemen and Genocidal Warfare explores the deployment of the SS Cavalry Brigade in 1941-2, with a special focus on the development of its ''dual role''. The brigade became a pacemaker of the Holocaust in Belorussia during the summer of 1941, and fought against the Red Army in the region between Toropets and Rzhev, a focal point of the eastern front, between December, 1941 and June, 1942. SS cavalrymen underwent a continuous brutalisation which saw them commit acts of mass violence with thousands of victims, a development only comparable to that of the Einsatzgruppen and battalions of the order police. Going beyond a unit history, Henning Pieper analyses the role and behavior of the brigade''s personnel and places it within the context of research on perpetrators and the operational history of the Waffen-SS. Thus, military history, Holocaust research, and perpetrator history are combined in this interdisciplinary approach.

Dewey's Social Philosophy: Democracy as Education

Product : Dewey's Social Philosophy: Democracy as Education
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality>Philosophy
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Dewey advanced a political vision for democracy as a form of deliberative polyarchy grounded in community ethics. This vision depicts citizens engaged in communal exercises in experimental civic education. This ethical project, to successfully pervade all of democratic society must be revolutionarily comprehensive. Maintaining the civil peace, a productive economy, a participatory citizenry, an effective penal system, and a religiously harmonious society are top democratic priorities. The economy needs employees and entrepreneurs who are more broadly educated, not merely well-trained; education is so crucial for empowerment that it must be a civic guarantee; education should be prioritized in law and criminal justice; and education is crucial for ethical communities embracing religious pluralism. Dewey''s core views on humanity''s capacities for learning, socializing, problem-solving, self-ruling, and flourishing forge a whole far greater than its parts. His progressive revolution is yet to be realized, but his philosophy remains just as insightful and relevant as ever.

Description : This book discusses representations of Japanese culture in Brazil, which emerge both in relation to the history of Japanese immigration to the country and to the increasingly global interest in manga and anime. These orientalist texts hesitate between contrasting conceptions of identity. They express both a nostalgia for the imagined stabilities of national modes of identification and a desire to challenge dominant conceptions of race and national belonging through an exploration of the virtualities of time and space opened up by information technologies. Virtual Orientalism in Brazilian Culture analyzes this contradictory discourse and provides a crucial insight into changing conceptions of modernity in Brazil.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : A basic income guarantee (BIG) is a payment by the federal government to all adult citizens. This book uses the United States as its model and sets the minimum income at $10,000 USD. Free Money for All seeks to show that not only is a basic income guarantee a feasible model for public policy, it is a morally attractive proposal.In this exciting new volume, Walker argues that BIG promotes three positive outcomes - social stability, gross national happiness, and gross national freedom - unlike alternate proposals such as socialism, laissez-faire capitalism, and the traditional welfare state. He uses a philosophical perspective to defend BIG against the claim that the promotion of social goals egregiously infringes the requirements of justice. Free Money for All employs a novel twist on the though that BIG can be supported by the idea of a social dividend.

Description : In the retail jungle dominated by giants like Walmart and Costco, survival for small and medium sized retailers will require a major shift from the traditional strategy of merchandise management to focus on generating customer value. Coping with Retail Giants critically analyzes the modern retail market and identifies how businesses gain the competitive edge over the major retailers that currently control the market. Samli argues that as society advances economically, consumers will seek better values generated by the retailing sector. This powerful stimulus will accelerate the retail revolution and be primarily carried out by entrepreneurial retailers-managers in small and medium sized retailing. Samli blends retail theory and practice to present a new model for retailing that delivers customer value, and ultimately, retail success.

Description : The Political World of Bob Dylan definitively investigates his relationship to the social, political, and religious cultures that acted upon Dylan and to which he reacted, the world that he influenced and that influenced him. Generally associated with the New Left politics of the 1960s, Bob Dylan''s political world view transcends that narrow description. The ideas he has expressed in songs and interviews can be categorized as traditional, populist, and Christian anarchistic. From his youth in Minnesota to the present, Dylan has embodied a political view that supports the underdog, questions those in power, and subscribes to sacred, universal truths. Whether viewed through his Jewish roots or Christian conversion, the singer has advocated freedom, justice, equality, and salvation as he has critiqued society.

Description : Offering a cutting edge study of the European Union''s (EU) promotion of democratic governance in neighbouring countries, this new book makes an original contribution to the study of democracy promotion and of EU external relations by presenting a new governance model of democracy promotion.Through robust analysis of the shortcomings of traditional ''leverage'' and ''linkage'' models of external democracy promotion in the EU''s Eastern and Southern neighbourhood, it presents a novel ''governance model'' that fosters transparency, accountability, and participation standards through functional cooperation between policy officials from the EU and neighbouring states. In particular, it examines the impact of democratic governance promotion in detailed case studies of EU sectoral cooperation with Moldova, Morocco, and Ukraine in the three policy fields of competition, environment, and migration.

Radical Decision Making:  Leading Strategic Change In Complex Organizations: Leading Strategic Change in Complex Organizations

Product : Radical Decision Making: Leading Strategic Change In Complex Organizations: Leading Strategic Change in Complex Organizations
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Management and Leadership
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Radical Decision Making offers a controversial new framework to the conventional strategic change management conversation. While many approaches provide a discussion on a singular level, Dr. Hruška blends theory and research of decision making and social interaction to develop a consistent framework of strategic change. Hruška draws from theoretical frameworks across disciplines like cognitive and organizational psychology, philosophy, and sociology to isolate the specific phenomena of formulation and implementation of radical change in organizations. The book focuses on three very specific, related topics: how leaders construct mental models which they use to interpret flow of experience; how leaders generate a governing metaphor which is a cornerstone of a radical mental representation; how leaders influence others to accept their radical mental representation. By analyzing organizations on both the leadership and employee level through this lens, this unique model provides greater understanding of radical change and a new model for initiation on the organizational level.

Martin Heidegger on Technology, Ecology, and the Arts

Product : Martin Heidegger on Technology, Ecology, and the Arts
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This highly accessible reading of Heidegger''s work on technology, art, and ethics provides unique angles on specific works of modern art and architecture. Lack begins with a discussion of Max Weber''s analysis of the disenchantment of the world and proceeds to develop Heidegger''s philosophy in a way that suggests a re-enchantment of the world that faces the modern condition squarely, without nostalgia. The relationships between Heidegger''s philosophical analyses of technology, art, and ethics are clearly articulated and connected in a framework for analyzing the modern human condition.

African State Governance: Subnational Politics And National Power

Product : African State Governance: Subnational Politics And National Power
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : This book offers a comprehensive picture of state and local legislative politics in Africa and a detailed examination of formal and informal political authority in the continent''s states, provinces and counties. It considers the pace and changing nature of African federalism - identifying a variety of subnational institutions emerging as centers of policy control - and asks the key questions: how do state legislatures affect the balance of power between governors and the national executive? What influences state-level budgetary control? Given recent decentralization and various political reforms, what is a state legislature? How will Africa''s new oil discoveries impact distributive politics? The book explores how executive-legislative relations often differ across levels of government, even where the party system otherwise seems similar, and argues that these differences are not simply the result of limited resources or experience, but due to misaligned institutional incentives. Chapters on Kenya, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and South Africa fill an important gap in comparative institutional research about state and local politics, and consider how identified trends could lead either to the promotion of democratic reform – or the consolidation of illiberal local politicians and ''godfathers'' in Africa.

Werewolf Histories

Product : Werewolf Histories
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : Today, werewolves are primarily known through films: as humans who change into wolves under the influence of the full moon. Although this is a recent image, werewolves have a long, fragmented and discontinuous history. Werewolf Histories is the first academic book in English to address European werewolf history and folklore from antiquity to the twentieth century. On the basis of mostly new source material, varying from archaeological finds, demonological tracts, witchcraft trials, slander suits and nineteenth - and twentieth - century legends, its contributors cover the most important European werewolf territories, ranging from Scandinavia to Germany, France and Italy, and from Croatia to Estonia. Werewolf Histories calls for a more sophisticated, contextualised, and differentiated approach and hopes to be contagious enough to spawn more of its kind.

Evolving Identity Politics And Cross-strait Relations: Bridging Theories Of International Relations And Nationalism

Product : Evolving Identity Politics And Cross-strait Relations: Bridging Theories Of International Relations And Nationalism
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 4
Description : The cross Taiwan Strait clash has evolved from a regime challenge revolving around ideological confrontation between Taipei and Beijing into a conflict about Taiwan''s nationhood. In Evolving Identity Politics and Cross-Strait Relations, Yana Zuo shows that Taiwan''s future is still full of uncertainty and unpredictability. A mutually acceptable solution is not likely without the ''one China'' principle as an independent Taiwan fundamentally challenges China''s modern national identity. Zuo demonstrates that dialogues between nationalism studies and international relations are urgently needed in explaining much of the identity-related conflict. States are under pressure of finding balance between an ordered state and a harmonious society. National consciousness contributes as a possible starting point to bring the society back to constructivism theorization of identity.
