Gravity Does Not Exist

GRAVITY DOES NOT EXIST VINCENT ICKE

A Puzzle for the 21st Century Every scientific fact was born as an opinion, gradually becoming fact as evidence piles up to support a theory. But what if there are two theories that correspond to the phenomena but can’t be combined into one? One theory replaced the mystery of gravity with a model of space and time. The other theory replaced the mystery of matter with a description of quantum particles. As we understand our universe, we keep each in its own domain: space and time for very large things, particles for very small ones. However, 13.8 billion years ago, those two incompatible domains belonged to a single realm. Who will crack this seemingly impossible puzzle?

APRIL Hardback

Combining robust scientific argument with intellectual playfulness, Icke succeeds in making a notoriously difficult subject accessible to all readers interested in understanding our universe.

Fellini “There is no end. There is no beginning. There is only the infinite passion of life.” Federico Fellini’s career spanned forty years and made him perhaps the most illustrious of all the Italian filmmakers. This stunningly designed volume taps into the sources of Fellini’s baroque imagination bringing the power of his work into the limelight, and providing new insights into the dazzling talent of the man behind La Strada, La Dolce Vita and 8½. The book is organised in four parts. Popular Culture focuses on Fellini’s engagement with the popular culture of his time. Fellini at Work shows the director on the set. The City of Women celebrates Fellini’s most important subject and obsession: Woman, in all her many guises. Finally, Biographical Imagination presents his various film personae, with particular focus on his ‘Book of Dreams’. Packed with images and quotes, this unique book offers a magical journey through the director’s compelling universe.

American pop culture dominates the world through its hegemonic presence. This fascinating study applies elements of postmodern theory to this globally mediated phenomenon to examine both the culture itself and its Dutch wake. Exploring how other cultures create their own “America”, the author reflects on what it might mean to truly take part in American popular culture.

Religious Architecture

Fabricating the Absolute Fake

Religious Architecture: Anthropological Perspectives develops new anthropological perspectives on religious architecture, including mosques, churches, temples and synagogues. Borrowing from a range of theoretical perspectives on space-making and material religion, this volume looks at how religious buildings take their place in opposition to the secular surroundings and the neoliberal city; how they, as evocations of the sublime, help believers to move beyond the boundaries of modern subjectivity; and how international heritage status may conflict with their function as community centres. The volume includes contributions from a range of anthropologists, social historians, and architects working in Brazil, India, Italy, Mali, the Netherlands, Russia, Spain, and the uk.

Walter Ruttmann and the Cinema of Multiplicity

FILM CULTURE

IN TRANSITION

Avant-garde – Advertising – Modernity The name Walter Ruttmann recalls enthralling and often controversial contexts. A leading figure of the interwar avant-garde, Ruttmann enriched the language of the cinema through numerous innovations in film form. His celebrated montage film Berlin. Die Sinfonie der Großstadt (Berlin: Symphony of a Great City, 1927) is still seen as the quintessential documentary of urban life in the 1920s. But Ruttmann also made numerous propaganda films after 1933, even working alongside Leni Riefenstahl. The first monograph on Ruttmann in English, Cowan’s study presents the entire aspect of Ruttmann’s work, while also re-assessing his significance in the light of current transformations in film studies. Drawing on the growing interest in “useful” cinema and “sponsored film,” Cowan shows how Ruttmann’s films incorporated and enacted contemporary strategies for “managing” the multiplicities of mass society from Weimar democracy to National Socialism.

The first millennium BC witnessed dazzling changes: in ninth- to tenth centuries BC the Mediterranean societies began to evolve from a great variety of mostly small entities of predominantly tribal nature until they became the enormous state known to us as the Roman Empire. The Archaeology of South-East Italy in the 1st Millennium BC offers a broad narrative, synthesising the available data and demonstrating how cultural, societal,

economic and landscape changes interacted, and how people adapted to their environment as distinct societies began to emerge. Douwe Yntema is professor of Mediterranean archaeology, member of the Research Institute CLUE at the VU University Amsterdam and fellow of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.

ARCHAEOLOGY

This remarkable volume explores the transformation of Iron Age communities in northeast Gaul, giving special consideration to questions of social identity. It surveys the multi-dimensional levels of socio-political organisation, the cycles of centralisation and decentralisation, the origins of the La Tène culture, the emergence of the oppida, and the role of sanctuaries in the construction of collective identities.

Manuel Fernández-Götz is Chancellor’s Fellow at the School of History, Classics and Archaeology of the University of Edinburgh.


Paul Bijl

Emerging Memory Photographs of Colonial Atrocity in Dutch Cultural Remembrance This incisive volume brings together post­ colonial studies, visual culture and cultural memory studies to explain how the Netherlands continues to rediscover its history of violence in colonial Indonesia. Dutch commentators have frequently claimed that the colonial past and especially the violence associated with it has been “forgotten” in the Netherlands. Uncovering “lost” photographs and other documents of violence has thereby become a recurring feature aimed at unmasking a hidden truth. The author argues that, rather than absent, such images have been consistently present in the Dutch public sphere and have been widely available in print, on television and now on the internet. Emerging Memory shows that between memory and forgetting there is a haunted zone from which pasts that do not fit the stories people live by keep on emerging and submerging while retaining their shadowy presence.

Amsterdam Studies in the Dutch Golden Age

Edited by Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann and Michael North

Mediating Netherlandish Art and Material Culture in Asia While the socio-economic and historical aspects of the Dutch East India Company (VOC) have been extensively researched, the role of the VOC in visual culture and the arts has been relatively neglected. This authoritative volume addresses various aspects of cultural exchange between the Low Countries and Asia. Increased prosperity and the flood of imported goods from Asia had a huge influence on seventeenth-century Holland. To cite some examples: when the VOC spread its merchandise throughout the various regions of Asia, Chinese decorative motives became popular in Indonesia. After the lifting of the seventeenth-century ban on the import of Christian books to Japan, a wave of interest in Dutch culture hit the country, giving rise to Hollandmania, imitation of anything Dutch.

Confronting the Golden Age

Imitation and Innovation in Dutch Genre Painting 1680-1750 Although a growing number of studies are being published on the Dutch art and society of 1680-1750, genre painting of this era continues to be dismissed as an uninspired repetition of the Dutch Golden Age. Grounded in close analysis of a range of paintings and primary sources, this beautifully illustrated study illuminates the main features of genre painting, and how these related to the painters’ close connections to, on the one hand, collectors, and on the other, to classicism, one of the dominant artistic styles of the time. Three case studies offer the first clear picture of the genre painting of the period while providing new insights into painters’ activities, collectors’ tastes and the contemporary art market. Junko Aono is associate professor of art history at Kyushu University in Fukuoka, Japan.

The Domestic Sources of Work Making Migration European Foreign Policy

Paperback

NE T HERLANDS SCI EN T I FIC COUNCI L FOR GOVERNMEN T POLIC Y

Defence and Enlargement

This book shows that the complexion of migration has changed. Most of the migrants who come to the Netherlands now are Europeans, many of them from Central and Eastern Europe. Some stay for good, and others return home after a shorter or longer stay. The Netherlands also welcomes a growing number of skilled professionals, many from outside Europe. Thanks to the eu’s open borders, migration policy has largely become a labour market issue.

This timely study considers the challenges of developing a foreign policy for a union of 27 states while taking national political processes into account. Serrano analyses the relevance of domestic political processes for the EU’s common policies and examines the democratic deficit in the EU foreign policy, thereby highlighting what is unique about it and reflecting on its possible evolution.

If we are to improve our migration policy, we must have a better understanding of the labour market structure in tomorrow’s globalising economy. Only then can we balance labour migration more effectively against other alternatives. Is it better to invest in training or to recruit employees from abroad? Will foreign workers even want to come to the Netherlands in future? And how can we adapt our integration policy to reflect the changing complexion of migration? That will require more from government and employers – and above all, from Brussels.

making migration work

The population of Europe is shrinking. Does that mean that we need more labour migrants? And will they adapt smoothly to our economy and society? Or has Europe already opened its doors too wide? Making Migration Work considers how labour migration policy in the Netherlands and the European Union should be developed, both now and in the future. Several internationally renowned researchers analyse current European labour migration flows and the related challenges.

The complexion of labour migration in the European Union has altered dramatically in recent decades. Not only has there been a shift in the length of time labour migrants spend abroad, but the nature, scale and direction of the migration flows have also changed dramatically. The enlargements of the EU in 2004 and 2007 were influential in this respect. The EU’s open internal borders made it easy for the migrants to return home or to move on to another member state. This publication considers what this means for the future of labour migration and how policy should address this issue.

The Essence of Scenarios Learning from the Shell Experience

THE ESSENCE

In 1965 Royal Dutch Shell started experimenting with a different way of looking into the future: scenario planning. Shell’s practice has now survived for almost half a century and has had a huge influence on how businesses, governments, and other organisations think about and plan for the future. To produce this illuminating study, the authors interviewed almost every living veteran of the Shell scenario planning operation, along with top Shell executives through the years. They identify several principles that both define the process at Shell and help explain how it has thrived for so long. Angela Wilkinson is Counselor for Strategic Foresight with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Roland Kupers is an associate fellow at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at Oxford University and co-author of Complexity and the Art of Public Policy.

Prolonged Employment of Older Workers Determinants of Managers’ Decisions Regarding Hiring, Retention and Training Prolonged and productive employment of older workers is a necessary condition to maintain welfare and social security systems threatened by ageing populations. Yet not much is known about the factors that define the opportunities for older workers in the labour market. The current study has evaluated which individual characteristics of older workers, organisations and managers affect managers’ decisions to hire older workers, offer them training opportunities and retain them in organisations, as well as the

potential role of managers’ attitudes on their behaviour with respect to older workers. Kasia Karpinska is postdoctoral researcher at Erasmus University Rotterdam.


Willem Middelkoop

The Big Reset War on Gold and the Financial Endgame What is money really worth any more? This compelling study outlines the rise of ‘fiat’ money and its associated economic implications. The author provides enough circumstantial evidence to claim a secret War on Gold since the London Gold Pool of the 1960s, highlighting gold’s traditional role as the anchor of financial systems. To combat the economic fallout of the credit crisis, governments have allowed their budgetary deficit to increase dramatically. To redress that imbalance, they then have to sell enormous amounts of bonds. As investors stop buying bonds, central banks have to step up to the plate by printing more and more money. Piling more and more bad debt onto the balance sheets of central banks is not a sustainable way to revive the economy. Middelkoop highlights the process as part of our economic endgame which he predicts will eventually lead to a big reset of our worldwide financial system.

Seeking Peace in the Wake of War The Reconfiguration of Europe, 1943-1947 Until recently Europe in the wake of World War II has been studied mainly from the perspective of national states. A whole historiography has been built on studying how national elites worked to restore institutions, power positions and infrastructure in order to re-establish central authority within the territory assigned to each state at the end of the war. The contributors to this illuminating study argue that the issue how peace was conceived and constructed in the postwar period should be understood as an episode of ‘reconfiguration’ in each country, new arrangements were reached within the society, the state and with the international order. Working from an all-European perspective, the authors survey social life during emergency and transition as connected to reconfiguration at the regional, national and international levels.

The Malaysian Islamic Party 1951-2013 Islamism in a Mottled Nation The Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party PAS is the biggest opposition party in Malaysia today and one of the most prominent Islamist parties in Southeast Asia. This work recounts the historical development of PAS from 1951 to the present, and looks at how it has risen to become a political movement that is both local and transnational, tracking its rise from the Cold War to the age of the War on Terror, and its evolving ideological postures ̶ from anti-colonialism to post-revolutionary Islamism, as the party adapted itself to the realities of the postmodern global age. PAS’s long engagement with modernity and its nuanced approach to the goal of state capture is the focus of this work, as it recounts the story of the Islamist party and Malaysia by extension.

GLOBAL ASIA

Foreign Policies and Diplomacies in Asia Changes in Practice, Concepts, and Thinking in a Rising Region The observation of a rising Asia and its rapidly growing economic powerhouses has become a truism. These impressive economic development stories provide the backbone for the growing political assertiveness in the region. Asia’s economic prowess is rapidly being transferred onto the diplomatic stage. In the light of these larger developments, the authors of this timely volume investigate the regional and international implications of a rising Asia and problematise critical developments. The first section focuses on the lack of a proper regional security community in Asia. The second part analyses the usefulness of ‘Asia’ as a catch-all for very distinct subregions. While not denying the utility of the concept of Asia as one region, the authors support the need to maintain in parallel a clear focus on issues, approaches, and characteristics that are unique to sub-regions within the continent. A third group of authors probe the regional foreign policies of key players in the region, exploring the security strategies and diplomacies of major regional actors.

European states representing different welfare regimes are experiencing tensions between changes in the labour market and the caring responsibilities of the households. This book contributes to the analysis of these tensions by focusing on carers “under pressure”, who have to juggle work and caring responsibilities. The authors investigate care arrangements set up by working parents of young children and of adults who hold a job while caring for their elderly relatives. Drawing on evidence from six European countries, they combine policy and family levels of analysis. This timely investigation of the

generations of men and women who take care of young children or/and elderly relatives while earning a living, is an essential resource for researchers, scholars and policymakers.

Claude Martin is research professor at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and Chair of Social Care at EHESP in Rennes, France.

Early School Leaving & Youth Unemployment Early school leaving and youth unemployment are top of the social and political agendas throughout Europe. More and more observers fear a ‘lost generation’ of young people who, by the combined effects of educational failure and chronic unemployment brought on by the continuing economic crisis, see their chances for a fulfilling and productive life seriously diminished. This important work draws on research of the P&V Foundation, a Brusselsbased body dedicated to combatting

This remarkable study develops a theoretical critique of contemporary discourses on secularism and assimilation, arguing that the perspective of assimilating distinct religious minorities by incorporating them into a secular and supposedly neutral public sphere may be self-subverting. To flesh out this insight, Jansen draws on the paradoxes of assimilation as experienced by the French Jews in the late 19th century through a contextualised reading of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time. She proposes a dynamic, critical multiculturalism as an

alternative to discourses focusing on secularism, assimilation and integration. Yolande Jansen is Socrates Professor of Humanism at the VU University Amsterdam.

Jansen’s brilliant and insightful analysis draws on a variety of fields and lucidly shows how the crisis is a crisis in modernity. Subtly weaving Proust into the argument, she brings a dry subject to life. Brian Klug University of Oxford

Dynamics of Religion in Southeast Asia Drawing on recent ethnographic research in Southeast Asia, the authors demonstrate how religious concepts contribute to meeting the challenges of modernity. Modernity is surrounded by an almost magic aura that casts a spell over people all over the world. In fourteen chapters, the authors demonstrate how religious concepts and magic practices contribute to meeting the challenges of modernity. Against this background, religion and modernity are no longer perceived as in contradiction: rather, it is argued that a revision of the western notion of

religion is required to understand the complexity of ‘multiple modernities’ in a globalised world. Volker Gottowik is associate professor at

This project is, by all measures, an extraordinary one, both in conception and execution. to a remarkable degree the Syntax of Dutch project manages to harmonize demands of depth and breadth. In part this appears to be due to the highly systematic approach followed. I believe the Syntax of dutch project will ultimately become a model for comprehensive grammatical description in the years ahead.

Ian Christie (ed.)

A book on the spectator, today, is a challenge – if not a provocation. Cinema is relocating on new devices and in new environments: in its migration, it asks us to change our habits and our attitudes. Are we still spectators – or are we users, surfers, nostalgic buffs, technology experts, hackers and face-book friends? This book provides a deep insight in such a controversial situation, both at the theoretical and empirical level – retracing a history and facing a destiny. Francesco Casetti – Yale University

The Key Debates is a film series from Amsterdam University Press. The series’ ambition is to uncover the processes of appropriation and diffusion of key concepts that have shaped Film Studies. The series editors are: Ian Christie, Dominique Chateau, and Annie van den Oever.

AUDIENCES

AUDIENCES engages with one of the most important shifts in recent film studies: the turn away from text-based analysis towards the viewer. Historically, this marks a return to the early interest of sociologists and psychologists, which was overtaken by concern with the “effects” of film, linked to calls for censorship rather than to understanding the mental and behavioral world of the spectator. Early cinema history has revealed the diversity of film-viewing habits, while traditional mass market box office analysis has given way to more sophisticated economic and sociological analysis of attendance data. And as the film experience fragments across multiple formats, the perceptual and cognitive experience of the individual viewer (who is also an auditor) becomes increasingly accessible. This book spans the spectrum of contemporary audience studies, revealing work being done on local, non-theatrical and live digital transmission audiences, and on the relative attraction of large-scale, domestic and mobile platforms.

This textbook offers an advanced introduction to international migration studies from theoretical and empirical perspectives. Its main focus is on European experiences, thus filling a longstanding gap in this field. Unlike people, theories and concepts do not travel easily, meaning we cannot take for granted that research results are equally applicable on all continents. The first volume of the imiscoe (International Migration and Social Cohesion Research Network) Textbook Series answered the pressing need for a European perspective on migration. This 15-chapter second volume presents central topics in an accessible textbook format.

Jan Rath is a professor of urban sociology at the University of Amsterdam and associated with the Institute for Migration and Ethnic Studies (imes) and the Center for Urban Studies at that university. “Anchored in the European experience of post-war migration, but with essays that extend far beyond, readers will benefit from up-to-date and reflective works on the key topics in the field.” Robin Cohen, University of Oxford “The imiscoe network includes many of the world’s foremost immigration scholars. The crème de la crème of them have contributed to this extraordinarily valuable book, which I will be assigning to my students for years to come.” Mark J.
