This book presents the financial implications of international accounting and financial reporting standards (IAS and IFRS), presenting numerous real-life situations, cases, examples and implications to reveal how GING might influence the implementation of corporate financial reporting of profit volumes and sizes, which are the leading drivers of and widely accepted proxies for corporate financial performance.

’I think the academic level of the textbook is appropriate; it sounds to me like a final-year UG or MBA text. The cases included in the summary do seem to be of a good level. The text sounds interesting but some of the students might find the style a bit overly academic or technical (though some lecturers, myself included, might find that a good selling point). the diversityfocused approach is in line with the approach I take in my teaching. [I like] The European focus, and although I think ‘synergistic’ is too much of a buzzword, we do need more textbooks which go beyond the traditional national-businesssystems approach.’ - Fiona Moore, Royal Holloway University of London, UK A case-based examination of issues in international management that helps students explore theory in the context of real-life practical situations.

'In the 1970s, Betty Friedan touched a deep chord in American women when she addressed ‘the problem that has no name’ in The Feminine Mystique. Linda Rossetti taps this generation’s ‘problem that has no name’: Transitions. Original, insightful, personal and yet universal, and keenly realistic, this book is a must-read for every woman seeking to pursue her unique life.'—Evelyn Murphy, MA Lt Governor and President of The Wage Project In a recent study, ninety percent of women stated that they ‘expect to transition’ within the next five years.

"In this important treatment of Japanese cinematic memory texts dealing with the United Red Army, Chris Perkins brings together politics, aesthetics and history to offer a new interpretation of how the events surrounding the United Red Army’s descent into violence have been represented and read as an ongoing trauma for Japanese society, and for the Left in particular. The dominant aesthetic of politicised and gendered kyōki (madness) surrounding the URA creates through its universalism a ‘trap’; violence and madness appear to be the natural ends of all left wing politics. Perkins traces the emergence of this dominant aesthetic alongside resistant processes. In doing so, he offers a new and challenging take on the generalised ‘trouble with history’ in Japan - the desire to suppress the past and the simultaneous searching in history for political relevance for the present condition." - Mark Pendleton, University of Sheffield, UK This book investigates how films made about the URA since the 1990s have engaged with, reproduced and contested cultural memories of the organisation, discussing how directors have addressed questions of narrativization, trauma, intergenerational connection, and political subjectivity as they engage in the politics of cultural memory on screen.

The Cultural Impact of Kanye West

Edited by Julius Bailey, Wittenberg University, USA

"Provocateur, egotist, sage, and artist, no figure in the past decade of popular culture has reflected and defined the zeitgeist better than Kanye West. This collection lays bare the tangle of complexities and contradictions that have made the artist and the art indispensable to our era and proves that if game recognizes game, wisdom does too." - Jelani Cobb, author of The Substance of Hope: Barack Obama and the Paradox of Progress Through rap and hip hop, entertainers have provided a voice questioning and challenging the sanctioned view of society. Examining the moral and social implications of Kanye West's art in the context of Western civilization's preconceived ideas, the contributors consider how West both challenges religious and moral norms and propagates them.

Consuming Reality

The (Moving) Pictures Generation

The Commercialization of Factual Entertainment

The Cinematic Impulse in Downtown New York Art and Film

June Deery, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Troy, NY, USA

Vera Dika, New Jersey City University, USA

“This is an enjoyable and convincing book that would be very useful for undergraduate students of media, cultural or consumption studies and those interested in Baudrillard’s theories on mediation and simulated reality. The argument is fluid and convincing, and the writing engaging. It provides an interesting and compelling critique of the reality television culture with a useful analytical reading of the underlying socioeconomic, political and cultural relationships contributing to it.” - The Kelvingrove Review

“An intensive study of important activities in the New York art world of the late 1970s, this book manages the tricky feat of being at once broad in its concerns and concentrated in its attention to key figures, works, and propensities within an informal yet clearly identifiable movement. Dika gives an enlightening and edifying account of an art movement that has never been more vividly evoked and thoughtfully interpreted. This book constitutes a major intervention in the field.” David Sterritt, Columbia University, USA

Engaging in a comprehensive examination of reality TV’s advertising and promotional strategies, as well as the commodification of viewers, Consuming Reality dissects the unique and startling relation between mediation and consumption.

Beginning in the late 1970s, a number of visual artists in downtown New York City returned to an exploration of the cinematic across mediums. Vera Dika considers their work within a greater cultural context and probes for a deeper understanding of the practice.

Introduction to Film 2nd edition Nick Lacey, Benton Park School, Leeds, UK

A long-awaited second edition of this popular text, which provides a concise introduction to the study of film and addresses the key areas encountered by students new to the subject.

Rimi Khan, University of Melbourne, Australia

“Art in Community provides an astute analysis of art, community and government in a world shaped by neo-liberal policies and increasing cultural diversity. Resisting the celebratory tone of creative industries discourse and community arts practice, the book is alive to the contradictions of contemporary art-making. Khan lucidly argues that provisionality is symptomatic of the evolving relations between culture, politics and subjectivity.” - Greg Noble, University of Western Sydney, Australia

“The authors in this remarkable book speak about themselves, their students, their institutional contexts with unusual moral, political, and cultural self-awareness and boundary-crossing interpretive acuteness. Their papers interweave not only a multi-vocal but also a coherent and immediately useful conversation about teaching in richly diverse classrooms. Telling vivid stories, drawing on experience as well as research and acute socioeconomic as well as educational analyses, they offer on-the-ground lessons for other teacher/researchers who really do care about and take responsibility for the lives including those of professors - that are indeed changed in classrooms.” - Elizabeth K. Minnich, author of Transforming Knowledge An anthology of original work authored by diverse faculty who work in a variety of New England college and university settings, this book focuses on institutional contexts that promote innovation in teaching practice, faculty identity as a resource for effective pedagogy, and dilemmas and outcomes of student-faculty engagement in the classroom.

Foucault and Educational Ethics Bruce Moghtader, University of Victoria, Canada

‘Succinct, accessible, insightful, Foucault and Educational Ethics is indispensable reading, a book both to study and to teach, a book that shows us that education can be ‘a process where one finds, loses and transforms oneself in the activity of learning.’ Not the final word on Foucault, this primer is a powerful and provocative beginning.’ - William F. Pinar, Professor and Canada Research Chair, University of British Columbia, Canada “This book is a deep, yet approachable introduction to the complex thinking of Foucault and with a special focus on ethics and education ... a book that will make you question and question further.” - Barbara Weber, Associate Professor, University of British Columbia, Canada By investigating Michel Foucault’s ethics, the book explores how we form ourselves as ethical subjects. This question is inseparable from the activities we take on to educate others and ourselves. Foucault’s questioning of the ways we know ourselves and the ways we conduct ourselves assists thinking and action in present educational ethics. Contents: 1. Introduction / 2.

TEXTBOOK

Gender Work Feminism after Neoliberalism Robin Truth Goodman, Florida State University, USA

"This book marks a path-breaking turn in feminist theory, where feminism illuminates the transfigured conditions of contemporary global society under neoliberalism. Goodman brilliantly restores the primacy of labor and class to feminist theory, political analysis, and social agency alike. Her riveting analyses recasts culture and everyday life as they reframe the capital flows of globalization. What results is extraordinary: an urgent, timely, and truly global feminist theory of how women's work changes the world." - Jennifer Wicke, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, University of Virginia, USA Labor has acquired a re-emergent public relevance and shown that feminist theory must reconsider the relationship between labor and gender. This book builds a theoretically-informed politics about changes in the gendered structure of labor by analyzing representations of how the symbolic power of gender is in the service of neoliberal practices.

“Susanne Lundin does a wondrous job of uncovering the ethically fractured world of human organ sales on a global scale. Lundin is a gifted ethnographer, and her keen eye, balanced approach, and moral sensitivity are evident on every page. Not since Dorothy Nelkin and Lori Andrews published Body Bazaar (2001) have we had such an accessible and deeply nuanced portrayal of the moral challenges, dilemmas, and circumventions that plague entwined clinical and social realms where human body parts are understood as scarce commodities essential to saving the lives of some while placing others at grave risk. ” - Lesley A. Sharp, Ann Whitney Olin Professor of Anthropology, Barnard College, USA, and Senior Research Scientist in Sociomedical Sciences, Columbia University, USA In this book, Susanne Lundin explores the murky world of organ trade.

Representation and Black Womanhood The Legacy of Sarah Baartman Natasha GordonChipembere, City University of New York, USA

“Apart from examining archives on Sarah Baartman, the book functions as an archive itself. The inclusion of poetry, song, visual art, and building projects lend a depth to the articles by solidifying the idea of Sarah Baartman as being more than a subject of scholarly research. This book is important in that it affords the opportunity to look back, not only at Sarah Baartman, but at social and political traditions that characterise human behaviour, the discourses employed to make sense of it, and aspects of our various pasts that were found wanting, and in this way, chart the path forward to new discourses and understandings. The text is as much about a figure long departed as it is about those that are currently living.” - Nwabisa Bangeni, Lecturer, Department of English, Stellenbosch University, South Africa This collection offers a space in which international scholars, cultural activists, and visual artists examine the legacy of Sarah Baartman’s life anew.

Spectral Shakespeares Media Adaptations in the Twenty-First Century

PALGRAVE PIVOT

‘Public’ and ‘Private’ Playhouses in Renaissance England The Politics of Publication Eoin Price, Swansea University, UK

"Eoin Price’s lively, scholarly study of what it meant to call a Renaissance playhouse ‘private’ or ‘public’ will change the ways in which we think about the Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre - indeed, it may change the ways in which we think about privacy, culture and the public sphere for good measure. This book is necessary reading for anyone interested in the institution of early modern drama." — Michael Dobson, Director of the Shakespeare Institute, Stratford-uponAvon, and Professor of Shakespeare Studies, University of Birmingham, UK

Maurizio Calbi, University of Salerno, Italy

“Calbi’s writing constitutes theoretical criticism at its best. Moving between the BBC ‘Shakespea(Re)-Told’ season, arthouse films and social networking discussion, as well as other cultural products and practices, the author showcases a rich array of ghostly renderings of the Bard. By turns seductive and heretical, and as arresting as it is intriguing, Spectral Shakespeares ranges ambitiously across time and space to argue passionately and persuasively for the crucial significance of Shakespeare’s multi-layered and multi-mediatized afterlives.” - Professor Mark Thornton Burnett, Queen’s University, Belfast, Northern Ireland , UK Spectral Shakespeares is an illuminating exploration of experimental adaptations of Shakespeare on film, TV, and the web. Drawing on adaptation studies, media theory, and Derrida’s work, the ‘Shakespeare’ that emerges from these adaptations is a fragmentary and mediatized presence that leaves a mark on our contemporary mediascape.

Rarity is a quality by which things—flowers, leaves, light, sound—fleetingly appear and disappear, leaving in their wake a resonance of something we just thought we had glimpsed.

Virginia Woolf and the Modern Sublime The Invisible Tribunal Daniel T. O’Hara, Temple University, USA

“Daniel O’Hara demonstrates how Woolf’s sensitive readings shape the exquisite character and sublime power of her own prose, which frequently combines the specific detail of modern experience with a grandeur associated with an earlier epoch. O’Hara’s grounding in romanticism informs his revisionary interpretation of Woolf’s modernism. As a result, O’Hara’s study produces an aesthetically and historically rich understanding of not just Woolf’s own corpus but also of the power of literature to shape ourselves and the worlds we inhabit.” — Robert T. Tally Jr., Associate Professor of English, Texas State University, USA Virginia Woolf and the Modern Sublime argues that Virginia Woolf transformed the sublime experience in her writing to make room for the democratic invention of female genius. From canonical to lesser known works, O’Hara places her ironic novels in the revisionary literary and critical tradition extending from the Elizabethans to the present. Contents: 1. Like Giving Birth to a Dead White Star: An Introduction To the Modern Sublime in Virginia Woolf / 2. Burning Through Every Context: On Narrating The Modern Sublime in Jacob’s Room / 3.

“If you are interested in understanding the reasons and causes of the democratic disenchantment that is undermining the European project, Vauchez’s book is a must-read. He argues, in a convincing and innovative manner, that the solution is not to be sought in an increase in classic electoral legitimacy, but rather in the democratization of the functioning of the European independent institutions who are the true locus of power in the EU.” - Pierre Rosanvallon, Professor, Chair in Modern and Contemporary History of Politics, Collège de France Drawing from recent streams of scholarship, Democratizing Europe provides a renewed portrait of EU government that point at the enduring leading role of independent powers (the European Court, Commission and Central Bank).

The Scottish Nation at Empire’s End Bryan Glass, Texas State University, USA

"Using a striking range of sources and archives, including oral evidence, Glass ranges widely over the reactions of Scottish business, the unions, the church, the newspapers that were in many homes, and the schools. The result is a book which should take its place as a truly significant work about the important domestic dimensions of imperial history. It should be read by all scholars, students and members of the general public interested in this key field for understanding modern British history." - John M. MacKenzie, Emeritus Professor of Imperial History, Lancaster University, Honorary Professor, University of St. Andrews The rise and fall of the British Empire profoundly shaped the history of modern Scotland and the identity of its people. By examining the opinions of Scots towards the empire from numerous professional and personal backgrounds, Scotland emerges as a nation inextricably linked to the British Empire.

"In this work, Joel Fetzer, a leading international scholar of migration, uses a number of case studies to consider the empirical consequences of opening borders to immigrants. The result is a sophisticated, original, and extremely timely account that shows why Western societies may have far less to fear—and much more to gain—from unregulated migration than they might think." – Matthew J. Gibney, University of Oxford, UK Although philosophers debate the morality of open borders, few social scientists have explored what would happen if immigration were no longer limited. This book looks at three examples of temporarily unrestricted migration in Miami, Marseille, and Dublin and finds that the effects were much less catastrophic than opponents of immigration claim.

It breaks out of stale boxes and sterile debates, asks silenced questions, takes us in new directions, and gets real about being critical.” – V. Spike Peterson, University of Arizona, USA This book gives provocative responses to recent debates in International Political Economy. It provides a much needed and timely intervention to the current anodyne discussions about the evolution of the discipline and prompts wider reflection on the nature of enquiry itself. Contents: 1.

It is a superb ethnography and a well-written text, bearing a powerful moral message.” - Gordon Mathews, Professor and Chair of the Department of Anthropology, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Drawing upon ethnographic descriptions of three grassroots ethnic organizations, which work for indigenous peoples in promoting economic livelihood, education and strive for social justice, this book investigates the possibilities and challenges of alternative development.

Debating Race in Contemporary India Duncan McDuie-Ra, University of New South Wales, Australia

"Who said race didn’t matter in South Asia, that it is something of the past, something that only had to do with the British? Duncan McDuie-Ra turns such thinking on its head, showing with great force that race and racial discrimination is very much alive and kicking in India today. This is social science at its best; attention to ethnographic detail and a close reading of everyday experiences are coupled with theoretical insights, analytical sharpness and political commitment. McDuie-Ra’s call for a more nuanced debate about race is timely, it is a must read for anyone concerned with the larger drama of social differentiation and racism in today’s world." – Bengt Karlsson, Stockholm University, Sweden Race debates have become more frequent at the national level, and the response to racism in the media and by politicians has shifted from denial to acknowledgment to action. Focusing on the experiences of communities from India’s Northeast borderland, the author explores the dynamics of race debates in contemporary India.

POLITICS Climate Change and American Foreign Policy Edited by Paul G. Harris, Hong Kong Institute of Education

"This book’s diverse investigations into the reasons for the slow pace of the American policy response to the climate problem also show the possibilities and limits of various theoretical approaches to policy analysis. Given the importance of climate change issues and the obvious need for a constructive American policy, this book is a timely contribution that will stimulate scholarly discussion about both pressing practical policy matters, as well as the current conceptual questions in studying international environmental policymaking." Simon Dalby, Carleton University, Ottawa Climate Change and American Foreign Policy examines the actors, institutions, and ideas shaping U.S. policy on climate change (global warming).

"This slim volume provides a unique window into how voters perceive the governor. Through rigorous analysis and gifted storytelling, Larimer demonstrates why Governors, particularly in a state like Iowa, must maintain a close connection to the voters to be successful.

Creativity — A Sociological Approach

Rethinking Interdisciplinarity across the Social Sciences and Neurosciences

Monika E. Reuter, SAGE Institute for Family Development, USA

Introducing the first macro-sociological perspective on the concept of creativity this book includes a review of ten domains which have studied creativity. It also explores the results of a six-year ongoing research project comparing students’ ideas on creativity with employers’ and industry professionals’ views.

Felicity Callard, Durham University, UK, Des Fitzgerald, Durham University, UK

“Interdisciplinarity, more than a hype and less than a solution, is a landscape with peaks and creeks, highs and lows. Callard and Fitzgerald travel wide and broad, with ethnographic curiosity and conceptual imagination, reflectively entangling in knowledge fields that encompass many perspectives. The result is truly valuable, for every interdisciplinary endeavour.” - Professor Andreas Roepstorff, Director, Interacting Minds Centre, Aarhus University, Denmark Rethinking Interdisciplinarity across the Social Sciences and Neurosciences offers a provocative account of interdisciplinary research across the neurosciences, social sciences and humanities. Rooting itself in the authors’ own experiences, the book establishes a radical agenda for collaboration across these disciplines.

The Dynamics of a Terrorist Targeting Process Anders B. Breivik and the 22 July Attacks in Norway Cato Hemmingby, Norwegian Police University College, Norway, Tore Bjørgo, Norwegian Police University College, Norway

“[This book] is based on a large range of data that would be the envy of any researcher. The authors do this privileged access justice with a phenomenal book that merits re-reading because it is so full of intimate granular level of data . . . But it is not just the data access that makes this piece of work unique. There is a lot for the field of research to learn from in terms of methodological approach.” - Paul Gill, Senior Lecturer in Security and Crime Science, University College London, UK

Alison Healicon, Independent Researcher, UK

With the recent media interest in celebrity childhood sexual abuse and rape cases, we think we know what sexual violence is and who ‘rape victims’ are. But this portrayal is limited. Drawing on in-depth accounts from women who have experienced rape, this book revisits issues of credibility, responsibility and feminism to provide missing details. Contents: 1. Sexual Violence / 2.

Living with London’s Olympics An Ethnography Iain Lindsay, Brunel University, UK

“Cities bidding for the Olympic Games now routinely spend as much time addressing issues of long-term legacy as to plans for the sports competitions. In this pioneering text, Iain Lindsay presents a wealth of ethnographic data to show how the seven-year preparations for London 2012 fared in light of the original claims. It is required reading for anyone interested in the realities of planning for the world’s most significant sporting and cultural mega-event.” - John Gold, Professor of Urban Historical Geography, Oxford Brookes University, UK The quadrennial summer Olympic Games produces the world’s biggest single-city cultural event. Drawing on ethnographic work around the London 2012 Games, this book contrasts the rhetoric and reality of mega-event delivery and shows that the notions of beneficial Olympic legacies and delivery benefits for host communities are, for most, unobtainable.

A Historical Account of Danish Sociology

A History

A Troubled Sociology

Anna Larsson, Umeå University, Sweden, Sanja Magdalenić, Socialstyrelsen, Sweden

Kristoffer Kropp, Roskilde University, Denmark

“Kristoffer Kropp’s book is a signal contribution to the growing library of careful historical studies of national social science disciplines and sub-disciplinary specialisms. A must for sociologists, intellectual historians, specialists in science studies, and those interested in the historical uses of Pierre Bourdieu’s field theory. This book tells a fascinating story about the stormy evolution of Danish Sociology and is a cautionary tale about the fragile conditions of social scientific creativity. Although the assault on the social sciences in Thatcherite Britain and Reaganite America during the 1980s is more familiar, Kristoffer Kropp reconstructs an even more dramatic case in Denmark that led to a ‘near death’ situation for Sociology in the 1990s. The author does not reduce the crises of Danish sociology to American influence, but his book shows the disproportionate impact of a handful of American sociologists on the balance of power in the sociological and wider scientific and academic spheres in Denmark. The book reconstructs the strategies, institutions, and research methods that emerged in response to disciplinary crisis, and traces sociologists’ efforts to navigate the polarization between autonomous and applied social science.” George Steinmetz, University of Michigan, USA Contents: 1.

Surveying Christian Beliefs and Religious Debates in Post-War Britain

“An artful review of topics that over the past two decades have become paramount in sociology: identity, the emotions, the body, gender and genes, class, status and power, as well as the status of sociology itself as a discipline.” - Steve Fuller, Professor of Sociology, University of Warwick, UK in the Times Higher Education supplement

"Surveying Christian Beliefs and Religious Debates in Post-War Britain offers a carefully measured survey and analysis that will be required reading for any serious commentator on religious trends in modern Britain [...] I recommend this book very highly."- Robin Gill, University of Kent, UK

This is a textbook with a twist. Written as a novel, from the perspective of Mila, a student new to sociology, it is a brilliantly engaging introduction to the discipline and the fundamental questions that have bothered the most important sociological thinkers.

Clements provides a detailed study of religious beliefs in British society, using a broad range of opinion poll and social survey data. Examining public opinion on religious-secular issues, this book provides a rich analysis of the belief and attitudes of social groups over time.

‘It’s a long observed paradox that while social science has made space a key analytic, it has been slow to theorise our relations with extra-terrestrial Space. Finally here is a volume that distils the finest new work on the sociality of outer space and Earth’s orbit. This remarkable collection takes the canon of critical thinking to these most unfamiliar of environments, not only bringing outer space ‘home’ but questioning the cherished planetary boundaries that frame mainstream scholarship. The reach of social science has been ably extended.’ - Fraser MacDonald, University of Edinburgh, UK Bringing together scholarship from across the social sciences and humanities, this handbook critically examines the relationship between society and outer space, exploring the history, present and future of outer space and the place of humans within it.

Enabling a Transformative Body Politic Nirmala Erevelles, University of Alabama, USA

"The time for Disability and Difference in Global Contexts is now. At the forefront of both the global and materialist turns in disability studies, Erevelles provides readers with an indispensable analysis of the ways in which disability in the current world order is constructed in relation to systems of gender, race, class, caste, and sexual orientation. Erevelles calls for a transformative body politic that resists the compulsory subject positions and relations of domination generated by neoliberal, capitalist modes of production. In and through that call, she remaps, in emancipatory ways, the terrain of disability studies, feminist studies, Marxist theory, postcolonial theory, and education." –Robert McRuer, Professor of English, George Washington University, USA This book explores the possibilities and limitations re-theorizing disability using historical materialism in the interdisciplinary contexts of social theory, cultural studies, social and education policy, feminist ethics, and theories of citizenship.
