Andrew Gebhardt

Holland Flowering How the Dutch Flower Industry Conquered the World This compelling volume investigates the history, global impact and cultural aspects of horticulture in Dutch national policies and outlook since the industry’s spectacular rise during the Dutch Golden Age. Since the 1630s Tulip Fever, flowers have become a lucrative commodity throughout the world. Horticulture, a major energy consumer, epitomises both the problems and the possibilities in the ways we grow, sell and distribute resources and commodities. Dutch flowers also crop up in prominent contemporary political controversies, from the Israel-Palestine conflict to the land grab in East Africa. More generally, flowers have traditionally been associated with aesthetic values, love and friendship. A thought-provoking study, this book will delight all readers interested in horticulture in general, the Dutch Golden Age and the rise of the humble tulip and rose to a global commodity.

This volume offers a fresh perspective upon a long-debated issue: the role of the occult in Surrealism, in particular under leadership of André Breton. Based on thorough source analysis, this study details how the understanding of occultism and esotericism, as well as their function in Bretonian Surrealism changed significantly over time, from the early 1920s to the late 1950s.

Lately, however, it has been used increasingly as a launching pad for commercial films at the expense of art cinema. This first comprehensive study of the relationship between the US film industry and Cannes draws on unpublished archival materials and interviews as well as case studies of Hitchcock and Schwarzenegger, Easy Rider, E.T., and more recent examples, to show how Hollywood has exploited the red carpet to build stars and to market blockbusters.

Warped Minds Cinema and Psychopathology

FILM CULTURE

IN TRANSITION

Bridging intellectual history, film and cultural studies, philosophy and aesthetics, this illuminating work investigates the depiction of madness from the early horror films of the 1920s and 30s to the transformation of clinical paranoia into cultural paranoia in the proliferation of contemporary conspiracy thrillers. Trifonova’s major departure point is the visual construction of pathology in the fin de siècle culture when photography and film were first used to record, distort or create images of ‘madness’. As still images became motion pictures, the new medium facilitated the transition from static psychiatric paradigms constructing madness in terms of fixed states, to increasingly dynamic styles foregrounding the socially constructed nature of mental illness.

Jean-Louis Comolli’s six-part article “Technique and Ideology” had a revolutionary effect on film theory and history when it first appeared in Cahiers du cinéma in 1971. In 2009, Comolli revisited his earlier text, arguing that the present age, marked by the total dominance of mediatised spectacle over image production, makes the need for an “emancipated, critical spectator” more pressing than ever. This volume brings together annotated translations of these two texts to provide an overview of Comolli’s activity as both a theorist and filmmaker.

Jean-Louis Comolli is a French writer, editor and film director. He was editor of Cahiers du cinéma in 1965-73. Daniel Fairfax is a doctoral candidate in film studies and comparative literature at Yale University and a regular contributor to Senses of Cinema.

Essays on Two Aspects of Film The collection gathers essays that focus on two areas of interest: the poetics of color in film and the affective responses of viewers. Each essay is built around the analysis of a particular film or group of related films, which are then used to explore a range of issues, including the difference between black-and-white and color, the emergence of bold color schemes in the 1950s, or empathetic viewer reactions to fictional characters, documentary subjects, animals, and architecture in film.

Multiple Language Versions Made in BABELsberg Ufa’s International Strategy, 1929-1939 After the transition from silent to sound film in the 1930s, film producers worldwide had to come up with a solution for the translation of dialogues. Berlin’s Ufa made a successful transition to ‘talkies’ largely by shooting several language versions of the same film with different or polyglot actors. Wahl intersperses the history of the production of multi-language version films at Ufa with readings of individual films and reflections on the tensions between original vs copy and version vs remake.

Our Strange Body Philosophical Reflections on Identity and Medical Interventions Contemporary medical technologies increase the possibilities of (re)shaping the human body. Drawing on philosophers’ explorations of the ‘I’, Slatman proposes that what we call our own body always entails an element of the strange. Citing examples from popular culture, sports, art, literature as well as from medical and life sciences, she argues that it is precisely that element which enables us to incorporate strangeness and adjust to radical physical changes.

A Corporate Perspective on Collaborating for Resilience

How can multinational companies develop a set of new collaborative business models that can contribute to increased system resilience of cities, regions or countries? Nine companies – Dow, DuPont, IBM, McKinsey & Co, Shell, Siemens, Swiss Re, Unilever and Yara – set up the Resilience Action Initiative (RAI) to explore this question. This important volume documents the findings of RAI over its first two years, sharing models and tools, while highlighting the real-world challenges of delivering resilience solutions. Roland Kupers is an independent consultant on Complexity, Resilience and Energy Transition and associate fellow at the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment at Oxford University.

The stress nexus is going to be with us for decades to come, as will be the search for resilience. This search will require closer cooperation between companies, cities and non-governmental organizations than ever before in modern corporate history. Peter Voser, former Shell CEO

Most conventional histories regard railways as a means for the construction of nation states and empires. This insightful study shows how during the interwar years, railways came to be regarded as instruments of building a pan-European community. The author examines projects for an international railway system while exploring the shared construction of the national and the European.

The Political Culture of the Sister Republics, 1794-1806 Leading historians of the French, Batavian, Helvetic, Cisalpine and Neapolitan revolutions bridge the gap between the historiographies of the so-called ‘Sister’ Republics. They explore political culture as a set of discourses or political practices. Parliamentary practices, the comparability of ‘universal’ political concepts, late-eighteenth century Republicanism, the relationship between press and politics, and the interaction between the Sister Republics and France are studied from a comparative, transnational perspective.

The Art of Military Coercion The United States spends more on its military than the rest of the world combined. Western nations in general spend far more than developing nations around the globe. Yet when Western nations have found themselves in conflicts in recent decades, their performance has been mixed at best. In his fully updated new edition of The Art of Military Coercion, Rob de Wijk presents a theory on the use of force. He argues that the key is a failure to use force decisively, to properly understand the dynamics of conflict and balance means and ends. Without that ability, superiority of dollars, numbers, and weaponry won’t necessarily translate to victory.

Kyiv, Ukraine The City of Domes and Demons from the Collapse of Socialism to the Mass Uprising of 2013-2014 The unrest and violence in the Ukraine this year has shocked the world, and the long-term future of Ukraine remains troublingly uncertain. Kyiv, Ukraine shows how the Ukraine reached this point, through a focus on the difficulty of Kyiv's transition from socialism to market democracy. Cybriwsky delves deeply into the changing social geography of the city, recent urban development, and critical problems such as official corruption, inequality, sex tourism, and the heedless destruction of the city’s historical architecture, all problems that contributed incrementally to citizens’ anger against their government.

One of the most important challenges facing the European Union is demographic: as birth rates continue to decline and the population ages, immigration will be needed to sustain a sufficient working-age population.

How Dutch Americans Stayed Dutch An Historical Perspective on Ethnic Identities The Dutch-American ethnic group demonstrates the persistence of ‘Dutchness’, which, however, has come to mean many different things in an American context. This groundbreaking study demonstrates that Dutch identities , focusing on the nineteenthand twentieth-century immigrants, have survived precisely because of this flexibility: the evolution of tradition, not its rigid preservation, is the unifying principle of social cohesion. As Douma contends, to understand ethnic groups we need to see them as historically developing, changeable categories.

Michael J. Douma is an assistant professor of history at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Douma provides a nuanced analysis of the dynamic concept of 'Dutchness' among Dutch American Calvinists since the mid-nineteenth century (…). The book is a major contribution in immigration and ethnic studies by a young scholar who has mastered the new genre of 'image' studies in historical research. Robert P.

Transit migration, comprising mixed flows of refugees and labour, is widely considered a concern and even security threat. However, the concept is as vague and blurred as it is politicised. This volume offers evidence-based, comprehensive coverage of the entire belt of countries in the neighbourhood of the EU, ranging from Russia to Morocco. Transit migration is critically analyzed from the perspective of sending, transit and receiving countries, offering new insights into refugee and irregular migration flows, transnational migration networks and overlapping migration systems.

IMISCOE RESEARCH OCTOBER Hardback 156 x 234 mm 318 pages ISBN 978 90 8964 644 6 e-ISBN 978 90 4852 310 8

School reception of immigrant youngsters has been for decades a policy issue in the EU. This book surveys how practitioners in Rotterdam and Barcelona apply existing policies, the dilemmas they face and the strategies they design as a response. Using a combination of discursive, organisational and ethnographic research techniques, the author investigates how these

practices conform to or diverge from policies. María Bruquetas-Callejo is research fellow at the Department of Policies, Practices and Gaps at the Institute of Migration and Ethnic Studies of the University of Amsterdam.

Photography, Modernity and the Governed in Late-colonial Indonesia This powerful study examines how contested notions of modernity, civilisation and being governed were envisioned through photography in early twentieth-century Indonesia when a reform programme known as the Ethical Policy was being implemented under the Dutch colonial regime. This is the first work to examine ‘ethical’ ways of seeing through photography, a medium whose proliferation coincided with significant social and political change in colonial Indonesia.

The work of the German philosopher Helmuth Plessner (1892-1985) inspired generations of scholars and has been enjoying a recent renaissance. This volume offers the first substantial English-language introduction to Plessner’s philosophical anthropology, contextualising it by comparison with the more familiar contemporaries such as Bergson, Cassirer and Merleau-Ponty, but also showing his relevance to contemporary discussion in a variety of scholarly fields. Jos de Mul is professor of philosophy at Erasmus University Rotterdam.

This study traces the socio-political effects of immigration on Singapore and its population, a topic that has been the subject of intense debate in the nation as its population grows increasingly diverse. Beyond the logic of economic imperatives, the book aims to explore the larger consequences of taking in large number of immigrants, and its analysis should appeal to scholars of migration, social change, and public policy.

For centuries, the book has been the ideal reading machine. As books are increasingly supplanted by digital, on-screen reading, it’s only natural that we find ourselves wondering what will be lost in the transition. This collection, edited by scholars with expertise in electronic publishing and the digital humanities, focuses instead on what we might gain – how screen technology might shape, and improve, the activities for which we have always used paper.

The Unbound Book

what might the digital revolution we’re currently living through mean for conventional paper books? is there a future for the long-form text at all? At the onset of the digital deluge, books had evolved into the perfect reading machine. in the screen era, technology increasingly and emphatically foregrounds itself in the digital reading experience. it is one thing to identify what we lose in the process (which is a natural human tendency), but quite another and, it might be argued, an ultimately more fruitful one, to identify how that screen technology might shape the activities for which we always used to use paper. screen technology is likely to determine our learning and entertainment habits. indeed, the ‘industrial’ forms of reading that may be performed by the computer have a very tenuous relationship to what we have always understood by the term. Awareness of the issues, and eventually new insights, are essential if we want screen technology to offer a digital future to the long-form text.

Technological and economic concerns have long been the drivers of debate about copyright. But diverse disciplines in the humanities, including literary studies, aesthetics, film studies, and the philosophy of art have a lot to offer if we wish to establish a more nuanced and useful conception of copyright and authorship. This volume brings together scholars from a range of disciplines to explore the challenges inherent in translating aesthetics and creativity studies to concepts of copyright, especially as long-standing approaches are troubled by the rise of the digital.

The Syntax of Dutch will be published in at least seven volumes in the period 2012-2016 and aims at presenting a synthesis of the currently available syntactic knowledge of dutch. It is primarily concerned with language description and not with linguistic theory, and provides support to all researchers interested in matters relating to the syntax of dutch, including advanced students of language and linguistics.

A Usable Collection

Hans Broekhuis is a researcher at the meertens Institute in Amsterdam.

The work is agreeably language- and theory-independent while its reliance on the solid basement of theoretical and empirical advances in generative linguistics is palpable throughout the pages. The authors manage to harmonize the demands of depth and breadth, and they draw reasonable demarcation lines around the relevant domains they choose to describe. [...] The Syntax of Dutch project [..] has definitely become a model for comprehensive grammatical description [...].

The prediction is that gold could be revalued at $ 7,000 per troy ounce.

A system reset seems imminent. The world’s financial system will need to find a new anchor before the year 2020. Since the beginning of the credit crisis, the US realized the dollar will lose its role as the world’s reserve currency, and has been planning for a monetary reset. According to Willem Middelkoop, this reset will be designed to keep the US in the driver’s seat, allowing the new monetary system to include significant roles for other currencies such as the euro and China’s renminbi.

Tales of Transit

“With unique access to all the Shell players, the research done by the authors Angela Wilkinson and Roland Kupers should be extremely useful for all those companies and governments that have already introduced or that will be introducing scenario planning in the near future.” — Arie de Geus, Former Corporate Planning Director at Royal Dutch Shell

Michael Boyden is Assistant Professor at Ghent University, Belgium. Hans Krabbendam is Assistant Director

Michael Boyden, Hans Krabbendam and Liselotte Vandenbussche (eds.)

“Global scenarios are increasingly relevant in today’s fast moving, interdependent world than when they began to be developed 50 years ago. Uncertainty should not be an excuse for failing to shape a brighter future, but an incentive to pursue better policies for better lives.” — Angel Gurría, Secretary-General, OECD

OF

The essence of scenarios

“This is a major case study of scenario planning, something that is not easily available to the student of scenario planning.” — Kees van der Heijden, Director and co-founder of the Global Business Network (GBN) and emeritus professor of Strathclyde University

Wilkinson and kupers

Dr. Angela Wilkinson (PhD in Physics) is Counsellor for Strategic Foresight at the OECD. She was part of the Shell Corporate Scenario Team for more than a decade. Roland Kupers is an independent consultant on Complexity, Resilience and Energy Transition, as well as an Associate Fellow at Smith School of Enterprise and Environment at Oxford University. He was previously a senior executive at Shell and AT&T.

Tales of Transit brings together viewpoints from the fields of transportation and social history, translation studies and literary scholarship to cast new light on the great transatlantic migration movements from the mid-nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. Rather than studying these movements exclusively from the perspective of the sending and receiving societies, the authors in this volume accord primary importance to the migrants’ liminal experiences on board steamers and in exit ports on both sides of the Atlantic. Drawing on a broad variety of sources, Tales of Transit highlights how transatlantic migration during the period 1850-1950 was seldom a straightforward, one-way movement. The viewpoints represented in this volume go against the stereotype of the migrants of ‘huddled masses’ and show how they actively engaged in complex rituals of engagement and disengagement.

THE ESSENCE

s

The BIG RE$ET

American Studies In 1965, when quantitative planning was much in vogue, Royal Dutch Shell started experimenting with a different way of looking into the future: scenario planning. The 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 the key architects, along with top Shell executives through the years. They identify several principles that both define the process which help explain how it has thrived for so long and been so influential beyond the company.

Religious Architecture

Edited by Stefan-Ludwig Hoffmann, Sandrine Kott,

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.
