Partners in Thought: Working with Unformulated Experience, Dissociation, and Enactment

Product : Partners in Thought: Working with Unformulated Experience, Dissociation, and Enactment
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Building on the innovative work ofUnformulated Experience,Donnel B. Stern continues his exploration of the creation of meaning in clinical psychoanalysis withPartners in Thought.The chapters in this fascinating book are undergirded by the concept that the meanings which arise from unformulated experience are catalyzed by the states of relatedness in which the meanings emerge. In hermeneutic terms, what takes place in the consulting room is a particular kind of conversation, one in which patient and analyst serve as one another¿s partner in thought, an emotionally responsive witness to the other¿s experience. Enactment, which Stern theorizes as the interpersonalization of dissociation, interrupts this crucial kind of exchange, and the eventual breach of enactments frees analyst and patient to resume it. Later chapters compare his views to the ideas of others, considering mentalization theory and the work of the Boston Change Process Study Group. Approaching the link between dissociation and enactment via hermeneutics, metaphor, and narrative, among other perspectives, Stern weaves an experience-near theory of psychoanalytic relatedness that illuminates dilemmas clinicians find themselves in every day.Full of clinical illustrations showing how Stern works with dissociation and enactment,Partners in Thoughtis destined to take its place beside Unformulated Experience as a major contribution to the psychoanalytic literature.

Product : Chloride Movements Across Cellular Membranes: Advances In Molecular And Cell Biology
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : All living cells are surrounded by a lipidic membrane that isolates them from the often harsh environment. However, to take up nutrients, to excrete waste, and to communicate among each other, Nature has invented an incredibly diverse set of transmembrane transport proteins. Specialized transporters exist to shuttle electrically charged ions, positive cations like sodium or negative anions like chloride, across the membrane. In the recent years, tremendous progress has been made in the field of chloride transport. The present book presents the state of the art of this rapidly expanding and interest-gaining field of membrane transport. It is addressed at a broad medically, physiologically, biologically, and biophysically interested readership.Describes the state-of-the-art in anion transport researchWritten by leaders in the fieldPresents a timely discussion of this rapidly emerging and expanding field

Literature, Neurology, And Neuroscience: Historical And Literary Connections

Product : Literature, Neurology, And Neuroscience: Historical And Literary Connections
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This well-established international series examines major areas of basic and clinical research within neuroscience, as well as emerging and promising subfields.This volume on the neurosciences, neurology, and literature vividly shows how science and the humanities can come together --- and have come together in the past. Its sections provide a new, broad look at these interactions, which have received surprisingly little attention in the past. Experts in the field cover literature as a window to neurological and scientific zeitgeists, theories of brain and mind in literature, famous authors and their suspected neurological disorders, and how neurological disorders and treatments have been described in literature. In addition, a myriad of other topics are covered, including some on famous authors whose important connections to the neurosciences have been overlooked (e.g., Roget, of Thesaurus fame), famous neuroscientists who should also be associated with literature, and some overlooked scientific and medical men who helped others produce great literary works (e,g., Bram Stoker''s Dracula). There has not been a volume with this coverage in the past, and the connections it provides should prove fascinating to individuals in science, medicine, history, literature, and various other disciplines.This book looks at literature, medicine, and the brain sciences both historically and in the light of the newest scholarly discoveries and insights

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : What were the medieval stylistic, aesthetic, and literary conventions that Chancer drew upon and knew that his audience would understand? In this rich study Mr. Robertson has included 118 illustrations-of medieval sculpture, cathedral interiors, illuminated manuscripts, paintings, ornamental devices and decorations-to show how these conventions affected the visual arts of Chaucer''s time. Special attention is directed to fundamental differences between medieval and modern attitudes toward poetry, and to the significance of these differences for an approach to medieval art. By placing Chaucer fully in his own time, Mr. Robertson establishes new perspectives for understanding Chaucer''s poetry. His book is like a rich tapestry weaving together many threads.Originally published in 1962.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Children in Moral Danger and the Problem of Government in Third Republic France

Product : Children in Moral Danger and the Problem of Government in Third Republic France
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : By exploring how children and their families became unprecedented objects of governmental policy in the early decades of France''s Third Republic, Sylvia Schafer offers a fresh perspective on the self-fashioning of a new governmental order. In the aftermath of the Franco-Prussian War, social reformers claimed that children were increasingly the victims of their parents'' immorality. Schafer examines how government officials codified these claims in the period between 1871 and 1914 and made the moral status of the family the focus of new kinds of legislative, juridical, and administrative action. Although the debate on moral danger in the family helped to articulate the young republic''s claim to moral authority in the metaphors of parenthood, the definition of moral endangerment remained ambiguous. Schafer shows how public authorities reshaped their agenda and varied their remedies as their schemes for protecting morally endangered children broke down under the enduring weight of this ambiguity.Drawing on insights from feminist theory, literary studies, and the work of Michel Foucault, Schafer reveals the cultural complexity of civil justice and social administration in both their formal and everyday incarnations. In demonstrating the centrality of ambivalence as a condition of liberal government and governmental representations, she fundamentally recasts the history of the early Third Republic and, more widely, issues a powerful challenge to conventional views of the modern state and its history.Originally published in 1997.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Family Secrets and the Psychoanalysis of Narrative

Product : Family Secrets and the Psychoanalysis of Narrative
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Family Secrets and the Psychoanalysis of Narrativeis the first book to explore the implications of the psychoanalytic theory of the phantom for the study of narrative literature. A phantom is formed when a shameful, unspeakable secret is unwittingly transmitted, through cryptic language and behavior, transgenerationally from one family member to another. The haunted individual to whom the encrypted secret is communicated becomes the unwitting medium for someone else''s voice--and the result is speech and conduct that appear incongruous or obsessive in a variety of ways. Through close readings of texts by Conrad, Villiers de l''Isle-Adam, Balzac, James, and Poe, Esther Rashkin reveals how shameful secrets, concealed within the unspoken family histories of fictive characters, can be reconstructed from their linguistic traces and can be shown not only to drive the characters'' speech and behavior but also to generate their narratives. First articulated by the French psychoanalysts Nicolas Abraham and Maria Torok, the theory of the phantom here represents a radical departure from Freudian, Lacanian, and other psychoanalytic approaches to literary interpretation. In Rashkin''s hands, it also provides a response to structuralist and poststructuralist critiques of character analysis, an alternative to deconstructive strategies of reading, and a new vantage point from which to consider problems of intertextuality, authorship, and the formation and origins of narrative.Originally published in 1992.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

A Death Retold: Jesica Santillan, The Bungled Transplant, And Paradoxes Of Medical Citizenship

Product : A Death Retold: Jesica Santillan, The Bungled Transplant, And Paradoxes Of Medical Citizenship
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : In February 2003, an undocumented immigrant teen from Mexico lay dying in a prominent American hospital due to a stunning medical oversight--she had received a heart-lung transplantation of the wrong blood type. In the following weeks, Jesica Santillan''s tragedy became a portal into the complexities of American medicine, prompting contentious debate about new patterns and old problems in immigration, the hidden epidemic of medical error, the lines separating transplant haves from have-nots, the right to sue, and the challenges posed by foreigners crossing borders for medical care.This volume draws together experts in history, sociology, medical ethics, communication and immigration studies, transplant surgery, anthropology, and health law to understand the dramatic events, the major players, and the core issues at stake. Contributors view the Santillan story as a morality tale: about the conflicting values underpinning American health care; about the politics of transplant medicine; about how a nation debates deservedness, justice, and second chances; and about the global dilemmas of medical tourism and citizenship.Contributors: Charles Bosk, University of PennsylvaniaLeo R.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : In 2005, Dr. William Penzer, a seasoned psychologist of more than four decades, found himself falling on his emotional face when his 31-year-old daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite having helped thousands of people navigate the choppy and challenging demands life often imposes, he was drowning in a sea of his own emotions. Like a traveler in a foreign land, which Dr. Penzer came to call Cancerville, he eventually discovered the pain-filled reality of supporting a loved one who has been diagnosed with cancer. In this groundbreaking book, he shares all the secrets of surviving and staying the course in Cancerville, helping people take better care of themselves while being fully present for their loved ones. His advice will help readers quickly adapt to Cancerville: to feel more empowered and optimistic; to rise to the challenges; and to deal with emotional down times, strengthen their minds, and communicate more effectively.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : A probing, ground-level investigation of illegal immigration and the people on both sides of the battle to secure the U.S.-Mexico border With illegal immigration burning as a contentious issue in American politics, Reuters reporter Tim Gaynor went into the underbelly of the border and to the heart of illegal immigration: along the 45-mile trek down the illegal alien superhighway. Through scorpion-strewn trails with Mexican migrants and drug smugglers, he met up with a legendary group of Native American trackers called the Shadow Wolves, and traveled through the extensive network of tunnels, including the Great Tunnel from Tijuana to Otay Mesa, California. Along the way, Gaynor also meets Minutemen and exposes corruption among the Border Patrol agents who exchange sex or money for helping smugglers. The issue of illegal immigration has a complexity beyond any of the political rhetoric. Combining top-notch investigative journalism with a narrative style that delves into the human condition, Gaynor reveals the day-to-day realities on both sides of the line.

Ecology Is Permanent Economy: The Activism and Environmental Philosophy of Sunderlal Bahuguna

Product : Ecology Is Permanent Economy: The Activism and Environmental Philosophy of Sunderlal Bahuguna
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : For decades, Sunderlal Bahuguna has been an environmental activist in his native India, well known for his efforts on behalf of the Himalayas and its people. In the 1970s, he was instrumental in the successful Chipko (or hug) movement during which local people hugged trees to prevent logging for outside concerns. He was also a leader of the long opposition to the Tehri Dam. In both conflicts, the interests of outsiders threatened the interests of local people living relatively traditional lives.George Alfred James introduces Sunderlal Bahuguna''s activism and philosophy in a work based on interviews with Bahuguna himself, his writings, and journalistic accounts. James writes that Bahuguna''s work in the Indian independence movement and his admiration for the nonviolence of Gandhi has inspired a vision and mode of activism that deserves wider attention. It is a philosophy that does not try to win the conflict, but to win the opponent''s heart.

Workplace Equality In Europe: The Role Of Trade Unions

Product : Workplace Equality In Europe: The Role Of Trade Unions
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Career Planning and Job Hunting>Labor
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Drawing on data from a Europe wide project, together with existing data on equality and diversity initiatives, this book explores the work of trade unions in supporting equality and anti-discrimination policies across Europe and, in particular, the processes and collaborations involved in incorporating equality and diversity policies into trade union agendas. It considers theoretical issues of equality and diversity, the role of EU legislation, multiple discrimination and exclusion and disadvantage in the labour market in relation to the role of trade unions, and addresses central questions about the actions and challenges faced by trade unions in promoting equality in the workplace and in implementing anti-discrimination policies at local, national and European levels. With research spanning 34 European countries and extending to over 250 interviews and 15 case studies, Workplace Equality in Europe examines the impact of a period of economic crisis on workplace diversity, exploring forms of inter-union cooperation at European and international levels and shedding fresh light on the processes that lead some trade unions to adopt equality policies while others remain reluctant to develop or expand policies in this area. A detailed European study of trade union activity and workplace diversity, this book will be of interest to scholars of the sociology of work and organisations, labour relations and workplace diversity.

Exploring Morality And Sexuality In Asian Cinema: Cinematic Boundaries

Product : Exploring Morality And Sexuality In Asian Cinema: Cinematic Boundaries
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This ground-breaking book explores the moral dimensions of sexual imagery in contemporary, general-release Asian films. It examines debates that arise over aesthetic styles and the cultural and traditional influences that determine the content and impact of these films. The social and regulatory environments for filmmakers across Asia reflect distinct national and cultural differences. In just the past decade, for instance, Indian cinema has rapidly moved from representations of coy and submissive female protagonists to highly eroticized leading ladies unafraid of flaunting their sexuality. On the other hand, the cinema emerging from the Chinese mainland has been much more circumspect in its representations of overt sexuality, at times in conflict with other Chinese cinemas from Hong Kong and Taiwan. This use of sexual imagery or morally questionable film content raises on-going debates into censorship and the use of state or industry controls to protect certain sectors of society from exposure to particular narratives or images. Film, like all forms of art, fulfils a number of aesthetic functions for local, regional and international audiences. As distribution and technological advances make Asian films more readily available across the globe, an understanding of the different aesthetics at play will enable readers of this book to recognize key cultural motifs in representations of onscreen sexuality and the surrounding controversies found in cinematic texts from Asia.

The Edge

Product : The Edge
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The Edge offers up a young Jack Slack, still in college, working in various internships, but playing in the big leagues of politics. His youthful enthusiasm for protesting geopolitical issues wins him the interest of an FBI agent convinced Jack is the mastermind of a conspiracy to overthrow the US government. Jack''s clever methods of self-defense convince the agent of the seriousness of the threat. This rogue agent, working undercover in the dark Hoover-era paranoia, kills one of Jack''s friends and makes an attempt on Jack''s. Twists and turns tie Jack to local law enforcement and to FBI internal affairs. Together, they unearth the real plot threatening the US government and end the rogue rampage that nearly takes Jack''s life. We are introduced to the young Jack Slack before he meets and eventually marries Anna, the love of his life. To say that Jack tested the waters or sowed his wild oats would appear to be a bit of an understatement. Yet in each of his relationships with women, Jack builds a basis of friendship and love that makes these women important both to the plot and to understanding Jack. The women in Jack''s life are each strong and independent. They challenge him and protect him. They are smart and insightful, often adding critical parts to the philosophical dialogue. Most of all, you see how Jack''s relationships lead not to endings but beginnings of lifelong friendships. The plot elements of The Edge -- and its romantic interludes -- offer up a context for existential exploration of the underpinnings of life. But Jack seeks more. He seeks the connection between life and the natural world, the physical universe. His philosophical jousting partner from The City, Ben, returns and brings with him a theoretical physicist. Ben, with his joint assignment at the University of Chicago and Fermi Labs, finds Fred, a Stanford physicist moving to Fermi, and puts together a trio capable of exploring this nexus, this deep connection between the cosmological and the ontological. The dialogue extends through time with twists and turns that rival -- and weave together with -- the main plot of the story. For serious thinkers, the philosophical questions and the perspective on physics offer ideas and direction for generations of exploration and further dialogue. The Edge is the second installment the Jack Slack Shoebox Dialogue series. Using a dialogue style inspired by Elmore Leonard and an intellectual scope inspired by Plato''s Socratic dialogues, this series offers modern fiction readers exciting stories with engaging action scenes, touching romance scenes, and satisfying plot turns. It offers serious readers challenging intellectual content intended to stimulate questions, challenges, and further dialogue. Like the Socratic dialogues, this series moves from one significant philosophical question to another as it moves through its books. The Edge, with its foundation in existential questions, offers the cosmological and ontological basis of the series.

Person Of The Word

Product : Person Of The Word
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The Person of the Word shares the accumulated experiences and insight of John Brandon Murray, as he has pursued his Christian walk over the last 25 years. The book is provocative because it challenges several Christian traditional norms and mindsets that have been adopted by the modern day church. The purpose of the book is to motivate the dormant Christian unto action, growth and maturity by recognizing the power of the Word of God and the awesome opportunity that exists for those of us who have access to The Word to study and to know The Word for ourselves. Topics such as, The Old man and the New Man, God is always calculating, Once saved, always saved?, perfection and Imperfection, The Tithe, and God''s Conditional Love are all examined in relation to the Word. Some of these topics are controversial, but have been simplified in this book. What does the Word have to say about these topics and in particular, the New Testament Word of God? God wants his church to step up and to measure up to the full image of Christ. When you read, you will understand very clearly that there is no excuse to be living a sinful lifestyle and one that is contrary to the Word because we are not debtors to the flesh to live after the flesh, and the same powerful Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead lives within us, if we have been born again. In addition to this, we have the Word, who shows us what to die to, and what to live for. As a Christian, God has called you to be a conqueror, not a Coward, a Victor, not a victim. We have been called to Overcome, not to be overcome. The battles that we face in life, we fight not on our own, but with God who is also in us, and so we are expected to fight and to win. If you have been intrigued by what you have just read, then read The Person of the word.

Description : Following Karambolage, On Duty and Off Duty (all published by Steidl), Arnold Odermatt''s (born 1935) After Work presents us with more rediscovered masterpieces by a photographer who trained himself primarily through his police job in the small, secluded Swiss canton of Nidwalden. Odermatt has thus developed his own artistic fingerprint which served him well during his working days as well as after-hours. Off duty, Odermatt often volunteered to take pictures all around his canton. Most of those pictures were shot only once, developed on demand and then archived in the attic, sinking into oblivion. Luckily, the photographer''s son found the treasure and takes care of its reevaluation. After Work is the fourth volume in a series of books that brings into focus this extraordinary work.

Transliteracy In Complex Information Environments

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Transliteracy in Complex Information Environmentsconsiders this relatively new concept, which has attracted a great deal of interest in the library and information field, particularly among practitioners. The notion of transliteracy arises in the context of increasingly complex information and communication environments characterised by multimodality and new roles of creators and consumers. Transliteracy concerns the ability to apply and transfer a range of skills and contextual insights to a variety of settings. Rather than focusing on any one skillset or technology, transliteracy is about fluidity of movement across a range of contexts. This book is concerned with processes of learning and knowledge creation. An understanding of transliteracy emergesfrom research data gathered in university and high school settings. Transliteracy is considered in relation to other literacies as an overarching framework. Applications in education and lifelong learning are discussed. Social aspects of transliteracy are considered in relation to academic cultures and broader social trends, particularly hybrid culturesProvides an overarching model of transliteracy based on the well-established information literacyRelates to a number of professional and academic fields, such as library and information, education, communication, media, and cultural studiesIntegrates both professional and academic perspectives

It demonstrates that the core theoretical orientations of the study of International Relations are not only incapable of understanding and responding to contemporary problems, but are profoundly complicit in creating the ecological problems in the first place.This major book develops a sense of these realities based on the thinking of Martin Heidegger. It forwards new ways of rethinking the environmental questions and addresses crucial issues such as sovereignty, the International Law of The Sea, the Kyoto Protocol, Northern Alaskan oil exploration and exploitation and the impact of the United Nations Convention on the Law of The Sea III.This is essential specialist reading for readers concerned with the environment.

Does Every Child Matter?: Understanding New Labour's Social Reforms

Product : Does Every Child Matter?: Understanding New Labour's Social Reforms
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Every Child Matters represents the most radical change to education and welfare provision in almost two decades. This book moves beyond a descriptive ¿how to¿ framework to examine the underlying political and social aims of this policy agenda.The authors¿ analysis reveals that Every Child Matters represents the Government¿s attempt to codify perceived risks in society and to formulate their responses. In doing so, children are made the strategic focus of much wider social policy reform, the effects of which are first felt in education.Does Every Child Matter?explores the ramifications of this along three key lines of analysis:the restructuring of the state beyond its welfare functionschanges in governance and the creation of new binariesa redefining of the education sector around the needs of the child.This book provides a unique and insightful critique of Every Child Matters and its contribution to understandings of New Labour social policy. It locates the genesis of the policy in terms of its social, political and historical contexts and questions the validity of constructing social policy around issues of child welfare. Students, academics and researchers in education studies and education policy will find this book of great interest.

The Egyptian Intelligence Service: A History Of The Mukhabarat, 1910-2009

Product : The Egyptian Intelligence Service: A History Of The Mukhabarat, 1910-2009
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This book analyzes how the Egyptian intelligence community has adapted to shifting national security threats since its inception 100 years ago. Starting in 1910, when the modern Egyptian intelligence system was created to deal with militant nationalists and Islamists, the book shows how the security services were subsequently reorganized, augmented and centralized to meet an increasingly sophisticated array of challenges, including fascism, communism, army unrest, Israel, France, the United Kingdom, conservative Arab states, the Muslim Brotherhood and others. The book argues that studying Egypt''s intelligence community is integral to our understanding of that country''s modern history, regime stability and human rights record.  Intelligence studies have been described as the ''missing dimension'' of international relations.  It is clear that intelligence agencies are pivotal to understanding the nature of many Arab regimes and their decision-making processes, and there is no published history of modern Egyptian intelligence in either a European language or in Arabic, though Egypt has the largest and arguably most effective intelligence community in the Arab world.This book will fill a clear gap in the intelligence literature and will be of much interest to students of intelligence studies, Middle Eastern politics, international security and IR in general.

Product : Muslims Under Latin Rule, 1100-1300
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Covering Portugal and Castile in the West to the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem in the East, this collection focuses on Muslim minorities living in Christian lands during the high Middle Ages, and examines to what extent notions of religious tolerance influenced Muslim-Christian relations. The authors call into question the applicability of modern ideas of toleration to medieval social relations, investigating the situation instead from the standpoint of human experience within the two religious cultures. Whereas this study offers no evidence of an evolution of coherent policy concerning treatment of minorities in these Christian domains, it does reveal how religious ideas and communitarian traditions worked together to blunt the harsh realities of the relations between victors and vanquished.The chapters in this volume include The Mudejars of Castile and Portugal in the Twelfth and Thirteenth Centuries by Joseph F. O''Callaghan, Muslims in the Thirteenth-Century Realms of Aragon: Interactions and Reaction by Robert I. Burns, S.J., The End of Muslim Sicily by David S. H.

Verbal Dueling in Heroic Narrative: The Homeric and Old English Traditions

Product : Verbal Dueling in Heroic Narrative: The Homeric and Old English Traditions
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This work is a rare cross-cultural study of one of the most universal dialogic genres: heroic flyting, or the verbal duel in which the heroes, prior to physical combat, make boastful claims that must be backed up through action in the arena of public contesting. Long recognized as an elemental behavioral paradigm in human consciousness, the contest has only recently emerged as a factor in the formation of Western intellectual traditions and modes of discourse. In presenting the verbal duel as a literary expression of the contest, Ward Parks shows how flyting interfaces words and physical action. He explores the place of flyting in the patterning of culture, both Eastern and Western, from Homeric and Old English martial narratives to current academic debate to such phenomena of popular culture as rap. Parks studies flyting from a comparative standpoint to discover major generic and structural characteristics common to this activity in both its oral and written traditions. Drawing his methodology from such fields as literary criticism, socio-biology, linguistics, and game theory, he begins with an exploration of the nature and structure of contesting as it relates to flyting interactions. He then examines the covert contract formation that binds the verbal and physical aspects of the duel, analyzes the heroic generation of speeches and their dialogic interrelation in the flyting process itself, and illustrates the adaptability of flyting patterns within a wide variety of cultural and ideological settings.Originally published in 1990.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Love and Beauty

Product : Love and Beauty
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Building on concepts developed in his previously published New Theory of Beauty, Guy Sircello constructs a bold and provocative theory of love in which the objects of love are the qualities that bear beauty and the pleasure of all love is erotic, without being sexual. The theory reveals a continuity of subject matter between premodern notions of love and modern notions of aesthetic pleasure, thus providing grounds for criticizing modern tendencies to isolate the aesthetic both culturally and psychologically and to separate it from its home in the human body.The author begins with an analysis of enjoyment that reduces all enjoyment to the enjoyment of the experience of qualities. He explains how we experience qualities as circulating in a special form of space that includes our own bodies, the external world, and their interpenetration. Sircello generalizes this analysis to encompass all forms of love and grounds the pleasure of all love--aesthetic or nonaesthetic, personal or nonpersonal, sexual or nonsexual--in an experience of the form of an overall bodily caress.Originally published in 1989.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Enforcing Order: An Ethnography of Urban Policing

Product : Enforcing Order: An Ethnography of Urban Policing
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Most incidents of urban unrest in recent decades - including the riots in France, Britain and other Western countries - have followed lethal interactions between the youth and the police. Usually these take place in disadvantaged neighborhoods composed of working-class families of immigrant origin or belonging to ethnic minorities. These tragic events have received a great deal of media coverage, but we know very little about the everyday activities of urban policing that lie behind them. Over the course of 15 months, at the time of the 2005 riots, Didier Fassin carried out an ethnographic study in one of the largest precincts in the Paris region, sharing the life of a police station and cruising with the patrols, in particular the dreaded anti-crime squads. Far from the imaginary worlds created by television series and action movies, he uncovers the ordinary aspects of law enforcement, characterized by inactivity and boredom, by eventless days and nights where minor infractions give rise to spectacular displays of force and where officers express doubts about the significance and value of their own jobs. Describing the invisible manifestations of violence and unrecognized forms of discrimination against minority youngsters, undocumented immigrants and Roma people, he analyses the conditions that make them possible and tolerable, including entrenched policies of segregation and stigmatization, economic marginalization and racial discrimination. Richly documented and compellingly told, this unique account of contemporary urban policing shows that, instead of enforcing the law, the police are engaged in the task of enforcing an unequal social order in the name of public security.

Product : Bodies Politic: Disease, Death, And Doctors In Britain, 1650-1900
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : In this sweeping analysis of colonialism and its legacies, John Wood Sweet explores how the ongoing interaction of conquered Indians, English settlers, and enslaved Africans in New England produced a closely interwoven, though radically divided, society. The coming together of these diverse peoples profoundly shaped the character of colonial New England, the meanings of the Revolution in the North, and the making of American democracy writ large. Critically engaged with current debates about the dynamics of culture, racial identity, and postcolonial politics, this innovative and intellectually capacious work is grounded in a remarkable array of evidence. What emerges from this analysis of colonial and early national censuses, newspapers, diaries, letters, court records, printed works, and visual images are the dramatic confrontations and subtle negotiations by which Indians, Africans, and Anglo-Americans defined their respective places in early New England. Citizenship, as Sweet reveals, was defined in meeting houses as well as in courthouses, in bedrooms as well as on battlefields, in land disputes as well as on streets. Bodies Politic reveals how the legacy of colonialism shaped the emergence of the nineteenth-century North and continues, even to this day, to shape all our lives.

The Leadership Of Organizational Change

Product : The Leadership Of Organizational Change
Category : Books>Business and Finance>Management and Leadership
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Understanding both leadership and change have been recurrent and popular themes within the business, management and organization studies literature. However, our understanding of leadership and organizational change in combination is far more limited. The Leadership of Organizational Change offers a critical review of the evolution of leadership and organizational change for the past thirty-five years, taking stock of what we know, identifying what we do not know, and establishing how the study of the leadership of change should advance. In the late seventies and early eighties, as interest in managing and leading change was fuelled by the competitive threat of Asia in general and Japan in particular as perceived by western businesses and governments, Burns (1978) writing in his landmark book Leadership at this time, referred to an intellectual crisis: The crisis of leadership today is the mediocrity or irresponsibility of so many of the men and women in power, but leadership rarely rises to the full need for it. The fundamental crisis underlying mediocrity is intellectual. If we know all too much about our leaders, we know far too little about leadership. While the study of managing change has benefitted from sustained critical scrutiny, particularly in the last decade, it is believed that this is to have been at the expense of critical scrutiny of leading change. The Leadership of Organizational Change critically reviews how the study of leading change has advanced since 1978 and the crisis of intellectual mediocrity.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : David Ricardo, one of the major figures in the history of economic thought, particularly in the English classical political economy, deployed his activities as economist just two hundreds of years ago. Since then his economics has been generally estimated as the culminating point of the classical economics, and his name and theory has been exerting an enduring influence up to the present. This book, consisting of articles contributed by historians economic thought on money and finance, intends to reappraise the Ricardo¿s monetary and financial thought on the occasion of its bicentenary and to offer historical clues to understanding today¿s world wide financial crisis.The book consists of eight chapters divided into three parts. The first part is devoted to the historical back ground of Ricardo¿s thought (Hume, Smith, Thornton etc). It serves to bring in relief the originality of Ricardo¿s thought in the historical context. The second and central part consists of four chapters discussing the most important aspects of Ricardo¿s monetary thought: Ricardo and quantity theory of money, the ideal monetary regime conceived by Ricardo very early in his career and matured till the last moment of his life, plan for the establishment of a national bank. In this part, the relation between the quantity of money and its value in Ricardo¿s theory is examined in a new light and Ricardo as a non-quantity theorist. The two chapters in the third and last part discuss the problems raised after Ricardo in relation to his monetary thought.Tracing Ricardo''s economic thought to the early 19thcentury, this book may provide readers insight to help them understand the present day financial crises through his works.

Contested Common Land: Environmental Governance Past And Present

Product : Contested Common Land: Environmental Governance Past And Present
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This innovative and interdisciplinary book makes a major contribution to common pool resource studies. It offers a new perspective on the sustainable governance of common resources, grounded in contemporary and archival research on the common lands of England and Wales - an important common resource with multiple, and often conflicting, uses. It encompasses ecologically sensitive environments and landscapes, is an important agricultural resource and provides public access to the countryside for recreation. Contested Common Land brings together historical and contemporary legal scholarship to examine the environmental governance of common land from c.1600 to the present day. It uses four case studies to illustrate the challenges presented by the sustainable management of common property from an interdisciplinary perspective - from the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, North Norfolk coast and the Cambrian Mountains. These demonstrate that cultural assumptions concerning the value of common land have changed across the centuries, with profound consequences for the law, land management, the legal expression of concepts of common ''property'' rights and their exercise. The ''stakeholders'' of today are the inheritors of this complex cultural legacy, and must negotiate diverse and sometimes conflicting objectives in their pursuit of a potentially unifying goal: a secure and sustainable future for the commons. The book also has considerable contemporary relevance, providing a timely contribution to discussion of strategies for the implementation of the Commons Act of 2006. The case studies position the new legislation in England and Wales within the wider context of institutional scholarship on the governance principles for successful common pool resource management, and the rejection of the ''tragedy of the commons''.

Wild Cycling: A Pocket Guide To 50 Great Rides Off The Beaten Track In Britain

Product : Wild Cycling: A Pocket Guide To 50 Great Rides Off The Beaten Track In Britain
Category : Books>Sports and Fitness
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This book is written for all those who love riding off-road. Cycling is a unique way to see and experience wild places andWild Cyclingis a hardworking guide book that takes the reader on a journey through the wild and stunning scenery of the British mainland, whilst providing inspiration and enough information for readers to get out and explore it for themselves.The concept of wild cycling means taking a bike on natural routes to explore wild places. The routes in the book link country lanes, green lanes, bridleways and towpaths to use natural and sometimes ancient ways between places to explore.Wild Cyclingis a guide book with inspirational photographs, descriptive copy, annotated route maps and ride profiles and GPS details. An introductory ''how to'' section discusses bikes, techniques and safety. The rides are then divided by region and each ride is given between two and six pages depending on length and complexity. The title in each case sums up the ride''s spirit and location. A fact-file gives details of ride length, geographical location, highest point, total height gained and notable hills with individual gradients. Each fact-file gives an indication of how hard the ride is, and how wild.Each ride is linked to a person, a race, a challenge, a moment in history or simply a landscape, or anything that makes the ride a unique challenge for two wheels and leg power. The ride names echo those given to rock climbs. A section of each description will draw the reader''s attention to points of interest: something, some person or an event that defines or is uniquely connected with each ride.Each route includes ''escape points'', where a ride can be cut short in case the weather changes or because of an emergency. Some rides can be completed in half a day, whereas others may take several days with overnight stops.

Safety Management Systems In Aviation

Product : Safety Management Systems In Aviation
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Although aviation is among the safest modes of transportation in the world today, accidents still happen. In order to further reduce accidents and improve safety, proactive approaches must be adopted by the aviation community. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has mandated that all of its member states implement Safety Management System (SMS) programs in their aviation industries. While some countries (the United States, Australia, Canada, members of the European Union and New Zealand, for example) have been engaged in SMS for a few years, it is still non-existent in many other countries. This unique and comprehensive book has been designed as a textbook for the student of aviation safety, and as an invaluable reference tool for the SMS practitioner in any segment of aviation. It discusses the quality management underpinnings of SMS, the four components, risk management, reliability engineering, SMS implementation, and the scientific rigor that must be designed into proactive safety. The authors introduce a hypothetical airline-oriented safety scenario at the beginning of the book and conclude it at the end, engaging the reader and adding interest to the text. To enhance the practical application of the material, the book also features numerous SMS in Practice commentaries by some of the most respected names in aviation safety. In this second edition of Safety Management Systems in Aviation, the authors have extensively updated relevant sections to reflect developments since the original book of 2008. New sections include: a brief history of FAA initiatives to establish SMS, data-driven safety studies, developing a system description, SMS in a flight school, and measuring SMS effectiveness.

Fealty And Fidelity: The Lazarists Of Bourbon France, 1660-1736

Product : Fealty And Fidelity: The Lazarists Of Bourbon France, 1660-1736
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The career of the French saint Vincent de Paul has attracted the attention of hundreds of authors since his death in 1660, but the fate of his legacy - entrusted to the body of priests called the Congregation of the Mission (Lazarists) - remains vastly neglected. De Paul spent a lifetime working for the reform of the clergy and the evangelization of the rural poor. After his death, his ethos was universally lauded as one of the most important elements in the regeneration of the French church, but what happened to this ethos after he died? This book provides a thorough examination of the major activities of de Paul¿s immediate followers. It begins by analysing the unique model of religious life designed by de Paul - a model created in contradistinction to more worldly clerical institutes, above all the Society of Jesus. Before he died, de Paul made very clear that fidelity to this model demanded that his disciples avoid the corridors of power. However, this book follows the subsequent departures from this command to demonstrate that the Congregation became one of the most powerful orders in France. The book includes a study of the termination of the little-known Madagascar mission, which was closed in 1671. This mission, replete with colonial scandal and mismanagement, revealed the terrible pressures on de Paul¿s followers in the decade after his demise. The end of the mission occasioned the first major reassessment of the Congregation¿s goals as a missionary institute, and involved abandoning some of the goals the founder had nourished. The rest of the book reveals how the Lazarists recovered from the setbacks of Madagascar, famously becoming parish priests of Louis XIV at Versailles in 1672. From then on, fealty to Louis XIV gradually trumped fidelity to de Paul. The book also investigates the darker side of the Congregation¿s novel alliance with the monarch, by examining its treatment of Huguenot prisoners at Marseille later in the century, and its involvement with the slave trade in the Indian Ocean. This study is a wide-ranging investigation of the Lazarists¿ activities in the French Empire, ultimately concluding that they eclipsed the Society of Jesus. Finally, it contributes new information to the literature on Louis XIV¿s prickly relationship with religious agents that will surprise historians working in this area.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : ''Thomas Pakenham could convert a property developer into a tree-hugger ... The book''s photographs are as beautiful and glossy as conkers; anecdote and information fall like autumn mast ... I closed the book and went to look at my own trees. Thanks to the joyful hours spent in its author''s company, I saw them anew. His book is a plum among autumn''s publishing fruits'' John Lewis-Stempel, author ofMeadowlandThomas Pakenham, indefatigable champion of trees, narrates a story of exploration and discovery, and of life-cycles that are longer than our own. Lavishly illustrated,The Company ofTreesrecountshis personal quest to establish a large arboretum at Tullynally, his forays to other tree-filled parks and plantations, his often hazardous seed-hunting expeditions, and his efforts to preserve magnificent old trees and historic woodlands.The book is structured in the form of a travel diary. Almost every chapter shelters stories about the life of his large trees. He takes us on a tour of Tullynally''s demesne and its trees, evaluating the condition of the oaks, alders, ash and limes that were among the first plantings.He travels to the Tibetan border in search of a magnolia (magnolias are Pakenham''s particular passion), to Eastern Patagonia to see the last remaining giants of the Monkey Puzzle tree, while the first of the Chinese-inspired gardens at Tullynally was planted entirely with seeds from south-west China. An expedition to Tibet''s Tsangpo Gorge goes awry only to lead to a fruitful exploration of the Rongchu Valley, which yields more than 100 bags of seeds, including the Tibetan golden oak, the Tsangpo cypress and blue-stemmed maples. All of the collected trees and plants are thriving at Tullynally. Whether writing about the terrible storms breaking the backs of majestic trees which have stood sentinel for hundreds of years, or a fire in the 50-acre peat bog on Tullynally which threatens to spread to ''the main commercial spruce-woods to the west of the peat bog''; his fear of climate change and disease, or the sturdy young sapling giving him hope for the future, the book is never less than enthralling. Pakenham is a passionate writer, educator and entertainer, and brings both wit and wisdom to a subject of universal appeal.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : FROM THE PREFACEThe field of medical devices represents one of the most advanced technological areas in the United States. In 1991, over 12 million Americans had at least one medical device; fixation devices had the highest incidence, followed by contact lens use and lens implants and, lastly, artificial joints. The public has come to expect that medical devices will alleviate maladies and/or conditions that were not treatable fifty years ago.It is hard to believe that the first pacemaker was invented in the 1950s, the first artificial heart valve in 1952, and the first artificial hip replacement was performed in 1954. In 1992, the medical device industry exported a total of $6.9 billion, while the country imported a total of $3.9 billion, representing a $3.0 billion trade surplus.Medical devices are among the most regulated products in the world. The FDA maintains a constant vigil over medical device manufacturers and importers; even medical device definitions are subject to official scrutiny. Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations publishes these definitions, but the definitions are spread over several medical specialty areas and are, thus, difficult to find. This book attempts to bring a measure of order by providing an alphabetical listing of officially defined devices.

Humans, Dogs, And Civilization

Product : Humans, Dogs, And Civilization
Category : Books>Home and Garden
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This book has 32 chapters about dogs, my own, my friends'', and those studied in the new dog labs sprouting up in academia. It is written in what my editor called a clear and engaging style. The novelist, Alex Austin, author of Nakamura Reality, said it was An enthralling blend of science and anecdote. Kirkus Reviews called it a must read, with fascinating implications, as well as praising my scientific research, combined with my reminisces about dogs. They conclude that the book is ..,persuasive and engaging ...and a must read for anyone interested in the long partnership between humans and dogs. Josh Matt loved it as a memoir, as well as a dog book. The book starts with a border collie herding sheep in Wales, then goes on to my dog Flippy''s herding a group of angry girls intent on whupp(ing) my ass, so that they couldn''t touch me, to Ishmael''s herding a dairy farmer''s cows the first day we moved to the country, and also his herding guests at our house parties I tell how Pooh guarded our land 24/7 for 14 years, a job she took on by herself. There are also chapters on whether dogs can think, whether they have a sense of time, whether they can figure out what humans will think if the dog acts a certain way, which is called having a theory of mind. The Purebred Dog'' and The Purity of Purebreds reveals some surprising dog behaviors. There is also a chapter on how Skeezix, my dog , uses his eyes to communicate to Scamp, my other dog. I call this eyetalking. and the complex messages he can convey are very unexpected. Do Dogs Have Extrasensory Perception? and ''The Umwelt of the Dog, about how dogs perceive the world around them, show amazing feats dogs are capable of, which ties in with All in a Day''s Work, and To Serve and Protect. This last describes how dogs are used in current ws situations. There are also chapters on how dogs and wolves differ, whether dogs are tamed wolves (they''re not), how scientists can date how long ago dogs became dogs through fossil evidence and also the new DNA analyses. One chapter is about other domesticated animals, all domesticated because of dogs. Then there are chapters on feral dogs, village dogs, and ownerless dogs. It also explodes the myths about how dogs became dogs, and when they did. Finally, the last chapter is How Dogs Created Civilization. There are many wonderful dog books on the market, many written by scientists, but none which covers the ground this one does. Even if you read a lot of books about dogs, you will find much to surprise and amaze you. My 8 years of research into dogs, as well as my personal experiences with them have certainly amazed me again and again..
