With a challenging introduction from the editors, Michael A. Peters and Tina Besley, this much-awaited addition to the Freire archive is highly recommended reading for all students and scholars interested in Freire, global emancipatory politics, and the question of social justice in education.

Charles Reitz

Philosophy and Critical Pedagogy Insurrection and Commonwealth Critical pedagogy, political economics, and aesthetic theory combine with dialectical and materialist understandings of science, society, and revolutionary politics to develop the most radical goals of society and education. In Philosophy and Critical Pedagogy: Insurrection and Commonwealth, Marcuse’s hitherto misunderstood and neglected philosophy of labor is reconsidered, resulting in a labor theory of ethics. This develops commonwealth criteria of judgment regarding the real and enduring economic and political possibilities that concretely encompass all of our engagement and action. Marcuse’s newly discovered 1974 Paris Lectures are examined and the theories of Georg Lukács and Ernest Manheim contextualize the analysis to permit a critical assessment of the nature of dialectical methodology today. Revolutionary strategy and a common-ground political program against intensifying inequalities of class, race, and gender comprise the book’s commonwealth counter-offensive.

Critically Researching Youth Critically Researching Youth addresses the unique possibilities and contexts involved in deepening a discourse around youth. Authors address both social theoretical and methodological approaches as they delve into a contemporary discipline, which supports research with – not on – young adults. This volume is a refreshing change in the literature on qualitative youth, embodying the understanding of what it means to be a young woman or man. It dismisses any consideration to pathologize youth, instead addressing what society can understand and how we can act in order to support and promote them. Shirley R. Steinberg is Research Professor of Youth Studies at the University of Calgary and the Director of the Institute of Youth and Community Research at the University of the West of Scotland. She is a prolific author and international speaker, and was recently awarded lifetime achievement awards for Social Justice from Chapman University and from the International Conference on Critical Media Literacy.

New York, 2016. XII, 297 pp.

Critical Pedagogy, Ecoliteracy, and Planetary Crisis The Ecopedagogy Movement We live in a time of unprecedented planetary ecocrisis, one that poses the serious and ongoing threat of mass extinction. What role can critical pedagogy play in the face of such burgeoning catastrophe? Drawing upon a range of theoretical influences – including Paulo Freire, Ivan Illich, Herbert Marcuse, traditional ecological knowledge, and the cognitive praxis produced by today’s grassroots activists in the alter-globalization, animal and earth liberation, and other radical social movements – this book offers the foundations of a philosophy of ecopedagogy for the global north. In so doing, it poses challenges to today’s dominant ecoliteracy paradigms and programs, such as education for sustainable development, while theorizing the needed reconstruction of critical pedagogy itself in light of our presently disastrous ecological conditions. Students and teachers of critical pedagogy at all levels, as well as those involved in environmental studies and various forms of sustainability education, will find this book a powerful provocation to adjust their thinking and practice to better align with those who seek to abolish forms of culture predicated upon planetary extermination and the domination of nature. New York, 2010. XX, 186 pp. Counterpoints. Studies in the Postmodern Theory of Education. Vol. 359 pb. • ISBN 978-1-4331-0545-6 CHF 36.– / €D 31.20 / €A 32.10 / € 29.20 / £ 23.– / US-$ 37.95

International Handbook of Progressive Education

The International Handbook of Progressive Education engages contemporary debates about the purpose of education, presenting diverse ideas developed within a broadly conceived progressive education movement. It calls for a more critical and dynamic conception of education goals as a necessary element of a healthy society. The scope is global, with contributing authors and examples from around the world. The sweep includes past, present, and future. Even for those who lament its failures, progressive education still seems to be asking the right questions. There is a vision, the progressive impulse, which goes beyond educational practice per se to include inquiry into a conception of the good life for both individuals and society. Because progressivists tend to dispute the status quo and the extent to which it nurtures that good life, there is an underlying critical edge to progressive thinking, one that has sharpened in recent progressive education discourse. The handbook’s inquiry into progressive education starts with a number of intriguing and difficult questions: How has progressive education fared in different contexts? How do progressive methods relate to ideas of constructivist, discovery, problem-based, experiential, and inquiry-based teaching? And do they «work»? If progressive education offers an important alternative, why has it often been ignored, abandoned, or suppressed? What is the relevance of its tenets, methods, and questions in the new information age and in a world facing global changes in environment, politics, religion, language, and every other aspect of society? with contributions by: Bertram C.

War/Play Video Games and the Militarization of Society The impact that First Person Shooter video games have had on the evolution of youth culture over a decade or more has been the focus of attention from political leaders; medical and legal specialists; and the mass media. Much of the discussion concerning these games has focused on the issues of the violence that is depicted in the games and on the perceived psychological and social costs for individuals and society. What is not widely canvassed in the public debate generated by violent video games is the role that military-themed games play in the wider process of militarization. The significance of this genre of gaming for the creation of a militarized variant of youth culture warrants closer interrogation. War/Play critically examines the role that militarized video games such as Call of Duty play in the lives of young people and the impact these games have had on the evolution of youth culture and the broader society. The book examines and critiques the manner in which the habits and social interactions of young people, particularly boys and young men, have been reconfigured through a form of pedagogy embedded within this genre.

Empire and Education in Africa The Shaping of a Comparative Perspective Empire and Education in Africa brings together a rich body of scholarship on the history of education in colonial Africa. It provides a unique contribution to the historiography of education in different African countries and a useful point of entry for scholars new to the field of African colonial education. The collection includes case studies from South Africa, Ethiopia, Madagascar, French West Africa (Afrique Occidentale Française) and Tanzania (then Tanganyika). It will therefore prove invaluable for scholars in the histories of French, British and German colonialism in Africa. The book examines similarities and differences in approaches to education across a broad geographical and chronological framework, with chapters focusing on the period between 1830 and 1950. The chapters highlight some central concerns in writing histories of education that transcend geographic or imperial boundaries. The text addresses the relationship between voluntary societies’ role in education provision and state education. The book also deals with ‘adapted’ education: what kind of education was appropriate to African people or African contexts, and how did this differ across and between colonial contexts? Finally, many of the chapters deal with issues of gender in colonial education, showing how issues of gender were central to education provision in Africa. New York, 2016.

Over the past decade, concerns about a global «obesity epidemic» have flourished. Public health messages around physical activity, fitness, and nutrition permeate society despite significant evidence disputing the «facts» we have come to believe about «obesity». We live in a culture that privileges thinness and enables weight-based oppression, often expressed as fat phobia and fat bullying. New interdisciplinary fields that problematize «obesity» have emerged, including critical obesity studies, critical weight studies, and fat studies. There also is a small but growing literature examining weight-based oppression in educational settings in what has come to be called «fat pedagogy». The very first book of its kind, The Fat Pedagogy Reader brings together an international, interdisciplinary roster of respected authors who share heartfelt stories of oppression, privilege, resistance, and action; fascinating descriptions of empirical research; confessional tales of pedagogical (mis) adventures; and diverse accounts of educational interventions that show promise. Taken together, the authors illuminate both possibilities and pitfalls for fat pedagogy that will be of interest to scholars, educators, and social justice activists. Concluding with a fat pedagogy manifesto, the book lays a solid foundation for this important and exciting new field. Erin Cameron (PhD, Lakehead University) is Assistant Professor in the School of Human Kinetics and Recreation, Memorial University, St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. She has published numerous book chapters and articles in journals like Fat Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Body Weight and Society. Constance Russell (PhD, University of Toronto), a Professor in the Faculty of Education, Lakehead University, Thunder Bay, Canada, has published numerous articles and book chapters and is editor of the Canadian Journal of Environmental Education and co-editor of the Rethinking Environmental Education book series for Peter Lang.

Politics, Pedagogy and Power Bullying in Faculties of Education Politics, Pedagogy and Power: Bullying in Faculties of Education is the result of research seeking to find explanations for bullying between faculty members in faculties of education around the world. The frank and devastating revelations of professors are shocking and painful, screaming for interrogation. Bullying in faculties of education is a strange phenomenon because anti-bullying programs abound while the behavior occurs at a significant number of faculties of education. The research finds that factors in leadership and neoliberal politics cause this odd phenomenon. Other causes were found in the problematic position of education in the academic world. The underdog position academics in education find themselves in works both ways: notions of being of less importance than any other science are mirrored in feelings people working in education have about themselves. In this research a bricolage is executed, the methodology that intelligently joins research methods driven by the growing understanding of the problem of bullying between professors in education. This makes Politics, Pedagogy and Power a useful guide in methodology classes. This book is a perfect textbook for leadership programs in higher education, because it deals with good and bad leadership and issues of power. New York, 2016. 186 pp. Critical Qualitative Research.

Teaching with Disney

Pictures, Parables, Paradoxes

A Field Guide to Game-Based Learning Revised edition

With its unprecedented wealth of images and videos, the digital world poses a completely new challenge to the entire educational system, in particular to higher education. In what sense can we speak of a visual liberation, a visual homecoming? To what extent are images autonomous carriers of meaning, what does a logic of images amount to? András Benedek is Professor and Head at the Department of Technical Education, Budapest University of Technology and Economics. He has published several papers on human resource development issues. Kristóf Nyíri is Professor of Philosophy at the same Department. His main fields of research are the philosophy of images and the philosophy of time.

This completely revised and expanded field guide is packed with new innovative ideas on how to implement game-based learning and gamification techniques in everyday teaching. Matthew Farber, EdD is a social studies teacher at Valleyview Middle School in Denville, New Jersey. He is also an adjunct instructor, Edutopia blogger, and cohost on Ed Got Game on the BAM Radio Network. Dr. Farber was a recipient of a Geraldine R. Dodge Teacher Fellowship, a Woodrow Wilson HistoryQuest Fellowship, and is a Certified BrainPOP Educator. He lives in New Jersey with his wife, Laura, son, Spencer, and playful Weimaraner dog, Lizzie. To learn more, visit: MatthewFarber.com.

Teaching with Disney, the first comprehensive volume on Disney as cultural pedagogy and classroom praxis, explores what it means to teach, learn, and live in a world where many familiar discourses are dominated by The Walt Disney Company.

Bourdieu and Data Analysis Methodological Principles and Practice Uniquely amongst the numerous publications to appear on the work of the French social theorist Pierre Bourdieu, this book deals with data analysis, examining a range of techniques and instruments. After an introductory chapter outlining the key principles of Bourdieu’s theory, the book presents detailed examples of data being collected and analysed in a Bourdieusian way across various social science contexts. Both qualitative and quantitative methods are addressed, including analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each method, as are common data collection procedures such as interview, observation and questionnaire. Examples of Multiple Correspondence Analysis are an important feature of the book, since this was an approach particularly favoured by Bourdieu. In each case study, the pros and cons of different approaches are highlighted and the qualitative/ quantitative debate is thoroughly explored. Overall, the book offers readers a blueprint to develop their own methodological plans for using Bourdieu in research practice.

Interdisciplinary Research Under the Microscope Interviews with Researchers Interdisciplinarity: Everybody talks about it, but has it ever truly been examined? What does it mean exactly? What motivations do researchers have to engage in an interdisciplinary dialogue? What can they gain, and what is there to lose? What is the nature of their academic and professional identities – are they fixed or transforming? To understand how epistemological, theoretical and methodological frameworks are constructed and negotiated between specialists of different and complementary disciplines, this book closely examines whether institutional contexts favor or discourage interdisciplinary research. In addition, the authors analyze both the positive and negative aspects of interdisciplinary collaborations, both the new possibilities and difficulties that arise from publishing interdisciplinary research as well as the inherent challenges of evaluation. Based on the results of a study on interdisciplinary practices, this book investigates these central questions surrounding both present and future scientific research. On the basis of a pluralist understanding of interdisciplinarity, the authors focus on researchers that share this understanding of interdisciplinarity, thereby kindling its creative potential and overcoming the challenges and obstacles that are still slowing down its development.

Ballet Body Narratives Pain, Pleasure and Perfection in Embodied Identity Ballet Body Narratives is an ethnographic exploration of the social world of classical ballet and the embodiment of young ballet dancers as they engage in «becoming a dancer» in ballet school in England. In contrast to the largely disembodied sociological literature of the body, this book places the corporeal body as central to the examination and reveals significant relationships between body, society and identity. Drawing on academic scholarship as well as rich ballet body narratives from young dancers, this book investigates how young ballet dancers’ bodies are lived, experienced and constructed through their desire to become performing ballet dancers as well as the seductive appeal of the ballet aesthetic. Pierre Bourdieu’s critique of the perpetuating social order and his theoretical framework of field, habitus and capital are applied as a way of understanding the social world of ballet but also of relating the ballet habitus and belief in the body to broader social structures. This book examines the distinctiveness of ballet culture and aspects of young ballet dancers’ embodied identity through a central focus on the ballet body.

Gender at Work A Social Psychological Perspective While many women receive equal education, such equality is nowhere in sight when it comes to women’s and men’s career success: men still earn significantly more than women and are more likely to be promoted. In this book, the authors offer a state of the art review of applied social-psychological research on gender at work, shedding light on all the different ways that work-related perceptions, attributions, outcomes, and the like differ for women and men. Focusing on domains (e.g., engineering) and positions (e.g., leadership) that are marked by women’s underrepresentation, the first part of the book looks at gender at work in terms of stereotypes, attitudes, and social roles, including parenthood, while the second part takes a social identity and communication perspective, exploring the situations in which men and women interact at work. Many chapters focus on applied questions, such as career choice, effects of role models, and sexual harassment at work. Theories and findings are applied to these topics, with conclusions and recommendations drawn throughout the book.

Towards a Sociology of Environmental Inequalities What are environmental inequalities? To which extent do they constitute sociological objects of study? How are we to approach their complexity and diversity? To answer these questions, the author invites us to join the large scientific and societal debates surrounding the compatibility of the protection of the environment with the struggles against socioeconomic or cultural inequalities, of environmental justice with social justice. Challenging various schools of thought in the fields of environmental studies and theories in the social sciences, the author provides a framework to analyze environmental inequalities, which she confronts with her own research conducted in coastal areas of France.

Reframing the History of Family and Kinship: From the Alps towards Europe

Brothers and Sisters from the Middle Ages to the Present

Over the past few years, the cross-disciplinary field of research devoted to family and kinship history in Europe has seen the emergence of an important stream of studies developing wide-ranging comparative perspectives on great spaces and long periods. Dionigi Albera is Director of Research in the Centre national de recherches scientifique CNRS. He directs also the Institut d’Ethnologie Méditerranéenne, Européenne et Comparative IDEMEC at the Maison méditerranéenne des sciences de l’homme MMSH (Université Aix-Marseille). Luigi Lorenzetti is Professor at the Università della Svizzera italiana where he is also coordinator of the Laboratorio di Storia delle Alpi, Accademia di Architettura, Mendrisio. Jon Mathieu is Professor of History at the Department of History, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, of the University of Lucerne.

Do brotherhood and sisterhood have a history? They have long been forgotten by historiography but now are benefitting from a growing interest from historians. This collective work, with thirty contributions from historians from different countries, testifies to this new interest. Although badly known, brothers and sisters occupy a central place in family relations. By emphasizing the long term and a large geographical area, from North America to Europe, the editors of this volume wish to seize their history by confronting different systems of kinship that are constantly evolving. To define and measure sibling relationships, to analyze them as a resource through the association of collective strategies and individual trajectories, to live and represent brother and sisterhood: these are the paths followed by the authors who have been careful not to forget sisters. Thanks to the variety of the studies assembled here, writing the history of fraternal relations offers the opportunity to renew approaches to the evolution of both kinship and family relations.

Deconstructing Twilight

Sexual Fantasies

Psychological and Feminist Perspectives on the Series

At the Convergence of the Cultural and the Individual

Using feminist and psychological theory, Deconstructing Twilight examines the behavior, relationships, and gender roles depicted in the popular Twilight series. Deconstructing Twilight encourages student engagement, understanding, and learning in the areas of women’s and gender studies, psychology, and interpersonal relationships.

The anthology covers sexual fantasies as they are expressed at the convergence of the cultural and the individual. Contributions focus on written erotica, on fantasies about the Other, on how sexual fantasies may be put into ritualized practice – used to expand reality, or regulated, on fantasies as fiction, and on how they may be used in therapy.

Donna M. Ashcraft earned a PhD in social and personality psychology from the State University of New York at Albany. One of the founding mothers of the women’s studies program at Clarion University of Pennsylvania, where she is Professor of Psychology, Dr. Ashcraft teaches a variety of courses in both psychology and women’s and gender studies, and has published a variety of journal articles and books in those fields.

Pedagogy of Constructive Humanistic Transformation Through Cinema

Myth, Politics and Representation

Gender and Prostitution in Italian Cinema, 1940–1965

Why are US presidents everywhere on screen? This book sheds new light on fictional representations of the American president in film and TV from the early 1990s to the present. The influence of changes in American politics and society – including 9/11, the economic crisis, and the election of the first African American president – are explored.

In the period 1940–1965 the female prostitute featured in at least 10 per cent of Italian-made films. This book explains why she was so prevalent in Italian cinema of this period and offers a new account of her on-screen presence. The author shows that prostitutes in Italian cinema are much more than simply ‘tarts with hearts’ or martyr figures.

Gregory Frame is Associate Fellow of Film and Television Studies at the University of Warwick. His research interests revolve around the politics and ideologies of mainstream cinema and television, and he is currently working on a project concerning the representation of American monuments and memorials in visual culture.

Danielle Hipkins is Associate Professor of Italian Studies and Film at the University of Exeter. She has published widely on gender and postwar Italian culture. With colleagues at Bristol and Oxford Brookes, she is currently working on the Italian Cinema Audiences project, a collaborative study of cinema-going in Italy in the 1950s. She is co-editing the book New Takes on Fallen Women: Prostitution and Sex Work in Global Visual Media (forthcoming), as well as developing a new project about girls, postfeminism and contemporary European cinema.

2nd Edition Movies Change Lives is a rigorous interdisciplinary examination of cinema as a vehicle for personal and social transformation. Tony Kashani builds a theory of humanistic transformation by discussing many movies while engaging the works of Erich Fromm, Stuart Hall, Henry Giroux, Hannah Arendt, Edgar Morin, Carl Jung, among others. Tony Kashani (PhD, California Institute of Integral Studies) teaches interdisciplinary studies courses at Southern New Hampshire University. His previous books include Deconstructing the Mystique: An Interdisciplinary Introduction to Cinema (2009) and Lost in Media: The Ethics of Everyday Life (Peter Lang, 2013).

«An assuredly deft and engaging exploration of how presidential figures function in American film and television, Gregory’s book is anchored in textual readings and it hits the right note – whether he is discussing the Capraesque tendencies in the comedy ‘Dave’, offering a focused appreciation of the looming presence of Martin Sheen, or unpacking issues of race and gender (in particularly persuasive chapters on black and women presidents). In Gregory’s own words the book ‘looks to engage fully with the politics of representation in the Representation of Politics’, and it is completely successful in that mission.» (British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies, 2016 Best Book Award Committee)

The Emergence of the Point-of-View Shot

Handbook of Applied Dramaturgy

Fifth Edition Now in its fifth edition, Frank Beaver’s Dictionary of Film Terms has become an indispensable reference tool for the study of films and filmmaking. This trusted and practical handbook clearly and concisely defines the essential terms of film analysis and film art, with a special focus on the aesthetic parameters and values of filmmaking. The updated and expanded edition includes new definitions ranging from «bullet-time» optical effects, to the coming-of-age narrative, and LED lighting technology in science fiction films such as Gravity. More than 200 film title references not cited in previous editions have been added. Many classic and contemporary photo stills are included to illustrate terms. Extensive cross-referencing among individual definitions ensures easy access to interrelated terms, and a comprehensive topical index relates to larger concepts of film art. This up-to-date and comprehensive resource is a useful companion for film students and filmgoers, who will find it illuminating in its range and clarity. Frank Eugene Beaver is Arthur F. Thurnau Professor Emeritus of Screen Arts and Cultures at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. For more than fifty years he has been a film teacher, film historian and film critic, and currently writes the monthly column «Talking About Movies» for MICHIGAN-TODAY, a world-wide on-line magazine.

The point-of-view shot is usually perceived as a «natural» device, yet its naturalness is illusory. This book provides an answer to the question: «Where does the point-of-view shot come from?» It investigates the emergence of this filmic form as the product of a culture and its history, unravelling the difference between a point-of-view shot and a character’s subjective viewpoint. In so doing, it shows that what would become the point-of-view shot developed from the interposition, between the eye and the world, of a prosthesis capable of modifying the conditions needed to access the visible, and thus to expand the potential of human vision. Moreover, the book offers inspiration for further research on modern (and postmodern) vision as a mediated vision, an important topic in contemporary debates in the digital media landscape. Elena Dagrada is Professor of Cinema Studies at the Università degli Studi di Milano. She was a member of the Executive Committee of Domitor (the international association for the study of early cinema) from 1993 to 1997 and wrote the second edition of its International Bibliography on Early Cinema (1995).

Since 2012, she has been in charge of Mimesis’ series, «Cinema/Origini».

The Secret of Film Narrative – Film, TV and Games This handbook illustrates the essentials of dramaturgy both from and for practical application in the media. The author provides an overview of dramaturgical models and guidelines in the fields of film, TV series and video games and discusses them by way of model analyses.

What are the construction-technological features of the Mosque-Cathedral and how can it be situated within Islamic architecture? Which transformations did the Umayyad Main Mosque of Córdoba undergo after its consecration as a Christian cathedral in 1236? In what ways did this new utilization phase affect the strategies of historical preservation in the 19th and 20th century? This book offers a critical analysis of the construction and restauration practices in what was once the most important mosque of the Islamic West. It provides new insights not only into the architecture of al-Andalus but also into Spain’s not always easy relationship with its Islamic heritage. Francine Giese is a SNF-sponsored Professor at the Institute of Art History of the University of Zurich. Her research focuses on Islamic art and architecture, al-Andalus, exchange and transfer processes Islamic World/ West (Iberian Peninsula, Ottoman Empire), monument preservation in the Islamic World, appropriation of Islamic aesthetics in the West (Middle Ages/19th century), Orientalism, and Islamic art and the museum.

The Power and Value of Music

and the Phenomenon of Hungarian Music Education

Its Effect and Ethos in Classical Authors and Contemporary Music Theory

In the mid-1960s, Hungarian music education, and especially music education in schools, enjoyed an almost legendary reputation throughout the world. The name of composer Zoltán Kodály, who published various singing exercises and pieces of music for children, was particularly associated with Hungarian music education. Music teachers around the world attempted to adopt this so-called «Kodály method» in their home countries. How did the phenomenon of Hungarian music education arise? Which factors enabled music education in Hungary? The author analyzes the historical, sociological and cultural components in Hungary during Kodály’s lifetime (1882–1967). He refers to some lesser-known, but significant, motives and enables a more realistic perspective on conjectures and legends. At the same time, this book memorializes those musicians, who were often unknown abroad and who are now largely forgotten in Hungary who turned Hungarian music education into a global phenomenon.

This book provides the most comprehensive overview available about the effect and ethos of music in antiquity and discusses many related questions of scholarly interest. It includes numerous references provided in the original language with translation, ample empirical material for further research, and an extensive bibliography.

The book explores cellular pivots as a new means of progression, functional tonality having disappeared in much of contemporary music. Béla Bartók serves as a kind of father figure to Chen Yi and George Crumb – stylistically, technically, and even philosophically. These affinities provide insight into universal principles of the post-tonal era. Monica Kang received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree in Piano Performance from The University of Texas at Austin. She also holds dual bachelor degrees in math and music from Northwestern University. Her research focuses on the affinities between music and other disciplines.

Andreas Kramarz holds a PhD in classical civilization (University of Florida), an MA in philosophy (Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum, Rome), as well as an MA in German language and literature and an MA in Catholic theology (University of Münster). During the final year of writing his dissertation, he was awarded the Langadas Graduate Fellowship. At present, he is the Dean of Studies and teaches humanities at the Legion of Christ College of Humanities in Cheshire, Connecticut. For many years he has been involved in music as a pianist, organist, and director of various choral and instrumental ensembles.

Anton Zwolensky was born in Budapest. He has lived in Switzerland since 1974. He studied Education and German Languages and Literatures at the University of Bern. With the present dissertation in Education Studies, Anton Zwolensky earned his doctorate. The author also studied music (piano, choral and orchestral conducting, school music) at the Béla Bartók Conservatory of Music and the Franz Liszt Music Academy in Budapest. Between 1980 and the 2000, he was active as a chamber musician and conductor. Many of his productions were recorded by the Swiss national radio station SRF2.

Christopher Caldiero

Neo-PR Public Relations in a Postmodern World 2nd Edition Christopher Caldiero examines new ways of thinking about public relations practice in today’s technological and postmodern world. His concept of «Neo-PR» and its thoughtprovoking principles re-examines and re-frames modernistic notions of public relations for today’s burgeoning PR practitioners. The book begins by looking at the historical development of the public relations field in the context of the modernism movement of the early twentieth century. Drawing parallels to this movement, Caldiero argues that public relations practice was inevitably shaped by modernistic thinking. Using a series of recent and prevalent public relations cases, he then shines new light on different ways public relations can and must be practiced in our different world. These cases and organizations include the British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon crisis, Susan G. Komen and Planned Parenthood, The Boy Scouts of America, Penn State University, and SeaWorld. Neo-PR: Public Relations in a Postmodern World re-conceptualizes public relations as we’ve come to know it, and helps to prepare today’s undergraduate and graduate public relations students for our postmodern world.

Public Relations Case Studies From Around the World The case studies in this book, many of which have won national or international awards, represent an impressive scope of public relations practice – from public diplomacy to corporate social responsibility to community relations to tourism to fundraising. As edited by a public relations educator recognized as Educator of the Year and two former chairs of the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management, these chapters take a significant step toward overcoming the dearth of published case studies in public relations beyond North America. Written by established scholars and professionals who had access to some of the world’s most intriguing and influential cases of organizational communication, these studies will be of tremendous interest to all who teach, study, and practice public relations around the world. Judy VanSlyke Turk is a professor emerita in the Richard T. Robertson School of Media and Culture at Virginia Commonwealth University.

Organizations, which are central in contemporary industrialized and post-industrial societies, including government departments and agencies, corporations, and non-government organizations, claim to want and practice two-way communication, dialogue, and engagement with citizens, customers, employees, and other stakeholders and publics. But do they in reality? Voice – speaking up – is recognized as fundamental for democracy, representation, and social equity. But what if governments, corporations, institutions, and NGOs are not listening? This book reports the findings of a two-year, three-continent study that show that public and private sector organizations devote substantial and sometimes massive resources to construct an ‘architecture of speaking’ through advertising, PR, and other public communication practices, but listen poorly, sporadically, and sometimes not at all. Beyond identifying a ‘crisis of listening’ in modern societies, this landmark study proposes and describes how organizations need to create an architecture of listening to regain trust and re-engage people whose voices are unheard or ignored. It presents a compelling case to show that urgent attention to organizational listening is essential for maintaining healthy democracy, organization legitimacy, business sustainability, and social equity. This research is essential reading for all scholars, students, and practitioners involved in politics; government, corporate, marketing, and organizational communication; public relations; and all those interested in democratic participation, media, and society.

The interrelationship between journalism and public relations (PR) is one of the most contentious in the field of media studies. Numerous studies have shown that 50–80 per cent of the content of mass media is significantly shaped by PR. But many editors, journalists, and PR practitioners engage in a ‘discourse of denial’, maintaining what critics call the dirty secret of journalism – and PR. Media practitioners also engage in an accusatory ‘discourse of spin’ and a ‘discourse of victimhood’. On the other hand, PR practitioners say they help provide a voice for organizations, including those ignored by the media. Meanwhile, the growth of social media is providing new opportunities for governments, corporations, and organizations to create content and even their own media, increasing the channels and reach of PR. This book reviews 100 years of research into the interrelationship between journalism and PR and, based on in-depth interviews with senior editors, journalists, and PR practitioners in several countries, presents new insights into the methods and extent of PR influence, its implications, and the need for transparency and change, making it a must-read for researchers and students in media studies, journalism, public relations, politics, sociology, and cultural studies.

Princess Cultures Mediating Girls’ Imaginations and Identities Princesses today are significant figures in girls’ culture in the United States and around the world. Although the reign of girls’ princess culture has generated intense debate, this anthology is the first to bring together international and interdisciplinary perspectives on the multitude of princess cultures, continuously redrawn and recast by grownups and girls from the Ancien Régime to the New Millennium. Essays critically examine the gendered, racialized, classed, and ethnic meanings of royal figures and fairytale and pop culture princesses inscribed in folk tales, movies, cartoons, video games, dolls, and imitated in play and performance. Focusing on the representation and reception of the princess, this collection sheds new light on the position of princess cultures mediating the lives, imaginations, and identities of girls from toddlers to teenagers – and beyond.

Digital Proxemics How Technology Shapes the Ways We Move

New York, 2016. XIV, 210 pp. Digital Formations. Vol. 110 hb. • ISBN 978-1-4331-3187-5 CHF 139.– / €D 123.40 / €A 126.90 / € 115.35 / £ 92.– / US-$ 149.95 pb. • ISBN 978-1-4331-3186-8 CHF 38.– / €D 33.70 / €A 34.70 / € 31.50 / £ 25.– / US-$ 40.95

The study of proxemics – the human use of space – is reimagined for the digital age in this book, a compelling examination of the future of the ways we move. Whereas much writing on the subject focuses on what digital technology might do for us, this book explores what the same technology might do to us. Combining dynamic stories, cutting-edge research, and deep reflection on the role of space in our lives, Digital Proxemics examines the ways that our uses of physical and digital spaces and our uses of technology are converging. It investigates the role of digital communication in proxemics, offering explorations of the ways digital technology shapes our personal bodily movement, our interpersonal negotiation of social space, and our navigation of public spaces and places. Through the lens of information and user-experience design, it adds forbidden spaces, ubicomp, augmented reality, digital surveillance, and virtual reality to the growing lexicon surrounding proxemics. The result is a spatial turn in the study of digital technology and a digital turn in the study of proxemics. As our culture changes, our ability to make choices about how to move will be called into question, as will our expectations for what roles technology will play in our lives. As we navigate this intersection, Digital Proxemics is at once a valuable lens through which we can view our shifting culture, a cautionary tale through which we might envision problematic outcomes, and an optimistic projection of possibility for the future of human communication and technology interaction. John A. McArthur (PhD, Clemson University) is Associate Professor in the James L. Knight School of Communication at Queens University of Charlotte. He is a researcher, author, and speaker on the role of space, technology, and user-experience in human communication.

The Ethics of Intercultural Communication

Global News

Philosophy for Multisensory Communication and Media

Focusing on Oriental and Western cultures, the book’s key case studies are China, North America, and Europe, where intercultural issues are relevant to an increasingly borderless world. Chapters focusing on a single nation or culture analyze findings from a crosscultural perspective. Comparative studies appeal to transnational theories and norms. Bo Shan, PhD, is Professor and Vice Dean in the School of Journalism and Communication and Head of the Media Development Research Center and of the Center for Intercultural Research at Wuhan University. His publications include The Problems and Possibilities in Intercultural Communication, The Spiritual Space of Junyi Tang’s Philosophy, On a Comparison Between Chinese and Western Journalism, and Chinese Journalism and Communication in the Twentieth Century: On Applied Journalism.

Reporting Conflicts and Cosmopolitanism Global News explores how media representation is conceived and enacted in a world of diversity and transborder flows. This book explores the different theoretical worlds of global media studies, takes a rare look at content, has a comparative perspective, and moves beyond the conflict frame that has dominated much of the literature in the field. Alexa Robertson is Professor of Media and Communication Studies at Stockholm University and has a PhD in political science. Her other books include Media and Politics in a Globalizing World (2015) and Mediated Cosmopolitanism: The World of Television News (2010).

Clifford Christians, PhD, is Research Professor of Communications, Professor of Journalism, and Professor of Media Studies Emeritus at the University of Illinois-Urbana. His co-authored publications include Moral Engagement in Public Life: Theorists for Contemporary Ethics, Normative Theories of the Media, Ethics for Public Communication, Communication Theories in a Multicultural World, Media Ethics: Cases and Moral Reasoning, and Key Concepts in Critical Cultural Studies.

Multisensory media—hybrid media that engage more than the auditory and visual senses— is beginning to change the way that we communicate. While hardware and software for capturing and emitting different types of sensory data are still being developed, this book lays a theoretical foundation for their use. Drawing upon the ideas of philosophers who write about sensory perception as well as each of the senses, Keith Kenney explains the issues that communication and media scholars will need to investigate as we begin to exchange haptic, olfactory, and even gustatory messages. Scholars interested in communication theory, media theory, and multimodality will discover new ideas by current philosophers, while scholars of sensory studies will learn how their field can be extended to communication and media. Designers of multisensory experiences, such as videogame developers, will find practical suggestions for creating richer and more meaningful experiences. A dozen sidebars apply philosophical ideas to common experiences so that the text can be used in advanced undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Keith Kenney (Ph.D., Michigan State University) is an associate professor at the University of South Carolina.

Mediated Authenticity

Global Media Literacy in a Digital Age

How the Media Constructs Reality This book explores the paradox of mediated authenticity – the idea that our understanding of society is based on mediated representations of reality. Enli argues that mediated authenticity is established through negotiations between producers and audiences in what is coined the ‘authenticity contract’. Sometimes the contract is broken, leading to authenticity scandals and the need to renegotiate this contract. These moments of truth, some of which are analysed in this book, are important moments in media history. Through case studies, this book examines mediated authenticity in broadcast and online media, from the infamous War of the Worlds broadcast, quiz show scandals, to manufactured reality-TV shows, blog hoaxes and fake social media, and the construction of Obama as an authentic politician. The book demonstrates that authenticity has become an increasingly important factor in the media, and that solving ‘authenticity puzzles’ – separating the fake from the real – has become an inherent practice of media use.

First Language versus Foreign Language Fluency, Errors and Revision Processes in Foreign Language Academic Writing First Language versus Foreign Language deals with the «battle» that takes place in writers’ heads when writing in a foreign language. Most academics today need to write in another language than in their first language (L1) in order to publish in internationally recognized journals. However, as writing research has shown, writing in a foreign language (FL) presents difficulties. The study compares L1 and FL writing, analysing written texts and the writing processes in terms of fluency, errors and revision. It takes a closer look at the «battle» between the L1 and the FL and offers useful insight. The findings allow a glimpse at the processes that take place in the brain, calling for new didactic approaches to FL writing. Esther Odilia Breuer is Head of the Centre for Writing Competency at Cologne University. Her main interests in writing research are foreign and second language writing, writing processes and neurological processes in writing.

Developing and Assessing Academic and Professional Writing Skills Academic literacy used to be considered a complex set of skills that develop automatically as a by-product of academic socialization. Since the Bologna Reform with its shorter degree programmes, however, it has been realized that these skills need to be fostered actively. Simultaneously, writing skills development at all levels of education has been faced with the challenge of increasingly multilingual and multicultural groups of pupils and students. This book addresses the questions of how both academic and professional writing skills can be fostered under these conditions and how the development of writing skills can be measured. Susanne Göpferich is Professor of Applied Linguistics and Imke Neumann is a postdoctoral writing researcher and instructor at the University of Giessen/Germany. Their research focuses on the development of plurilingual skills including translation competence and academic literacy.

The Global World and its Manifold Faces Otherness as the Basis of Communication

The Global World is a pivotal formula in present-day «Newspeak». The book’s leitmotif – if it is true that the faces of today’s global world are manifold – is that language opens to the other, that the word’s boundaries are the multiple boundaries of the relation to others, of encounter among differences. Otherness logic is in language and life. The aim is to evidence how, contrary to implications of the newspeak order, new worlds are possible, critical linguistic consciousness is possible – a «word revolution» and pathway to social change. The method is «linguistic» and concerns the language and communication sciences. But to avoid that the limits of the latter influence our perspective on «the global world and its manifold faces», this method is located at the intersection of different scientific perspectives. As such it pertains to «philosophy of language», but in dialogue with the science of verbal and nonverbal signs, today «global semiotics», therefore it is also «semiotic». And given that how to understand «the global world» is not just a theoretical issue, but concerns how we relate to others, to differences in all their forms and aspects, the method proposed with this book is also «semioethic». Contents: Language and Social Reproduction • The Critique of Glottocentricism, European Signatures • Translation as the Life of Signs • Communication and Otherness in Philosophy of Language • Significs and Semioethics. Educating for Meaning and Value • Perception and Understanding in the Era of Global Communication • Humanism Questioned. The Gift in and Beyond Exchange • The Self: Its Limits and Potentialities • Two Assumptions in Legal Discourse: Answering for Self and Telling the Truth • Identity to Alterity, a Look through Literary Writing • Misunderstanding in Understanding.

Translating Expressive Language in Children’s Literature

The Politics of Dubbing

Portuguese Language Contacts

Film Censorship and State Intervention in the Translation of Foreign Cinema in Fascist Italy

Select Contributions from the Section «Portuguese Language Contacts» of the 10th German Lusitanic Conference from 10th–14th September 2013 in Hamburg

Problems and Solutions Children’s literature delights in made-up words, nonsensical terms, and creative nicknames, but how do you translate these expressions into another language? This book provides a new approach to translation studies to address the challenges of translating children’s literature. It focuses on expressive language (nonsense, names, idioms, allusions, puns, and dialects) and provides guidance for translators about how to translate such linguistic features without making assumptions about the reader’s capabilities and without drastically changing the work. The text features effective strategies for both experienced translators and those who are new to the field, including exercises and discussion questions that are particularly beneficial for students training to be translators. This learner-friendly book also offers original contributions to translation theory in light of the translation issues particular to children’s literature.

Why are foreign-language films shown in Italy dubbed into Italian, rather subtitled? This book traces the origins of audiovisual translation practices in Italy to the 1920s and 1930s, exploring the fascist government’s political interest in dubbing and its relationship to film censorship. Carla Mereu Keating holds a PhD in Italian Studies from the University of Reading. She has contributed to various publications on film history, censorship, ethnicity, dubbing and subtitling. She is a visiting research fellow at the Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Studies, University of London. Her current research focuses on portrayals of warfare and war legacy in films, state censorship and the shaping of cultural and collective memory.

This edited volume comprises contributions on the topic of «Portuguese Language Contact». Diverse contexts are analyzed: from German and Italian immigrants and brasiguaios in Brazil, to Portuguese and Brazilian migrants in Germany and Switzerland, from the Creole in the Cape Verde Islands to the Portuguese spoken in Mozambique and Asia as well as the Pomeranian minorities in Brazil. The issues discussed in this edited volume run the gamut from linguistic landscape research, language policies, contact linguistics and language acquisition to the effects of language contact (e.g. borrowings, crosslinguistic influence, language decline), ethnolinguistics, identity constructions in transnational spaces and the role language plays in the integration process. Joachim Born is Professor of Romance Linguistics at the University Giessen.

Legilinguistic Translatology

Comparative Law for Legal Translators

Classics Revisited

A Parametric Approach to Legal Translation With the purpose of making the process of legal translation accessible to investigation, the author resorts to the parametrization of translational reality as an inalienable component of her translational theory being proposed here for consideration. The aim is to propose a more precise theory of legilinguistic translation which compels the author to clearly distinguish primitive terms and postulates. These latter specify the image (model) of the reality in question in terms of relevant dimensions used to characterize a set of translational objects and relations. The dimensions secure a systematic examination of the translation reality and process. In order to illustrate the practical application of the parametrization in legal translation, the discussion concerning this translation approach is limited to certain selected types of legal communicative communities which is amply exemplified. The research is based on data and information gathered during an in-depth case study of translations and parallel text corpora mainly in the field of civil law including insolvency and bankruptcy law. Aleksandra Matulewska graduated from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, Faculty of Modern Languages and Literature, Institute of Linguistics (MA in linguistics and information science, PhD in general linguistics). She is a translator, an adiunkt (assistant professor), a member of the Association of Polish Translators and Interpreters (STP) and the Polish Society of Sworn and Specialized Translators TEPIS.

One of the central challenges facing translators of legal texts is the ability to fully understand the requirements of the various legal systems worldwide. In this respect, comparative law plays an important role in legal translation, as it allows for the identification of similarities and differences among legal systems. While the practice of legal translation requires an excellent knowledge of comparative law for the linguistic transfer to be successful, educational institutions do not usually train their students in how to make the most of comparative law in the translation of legal texts or how to rationally solve the problems arising from the differences that inevitably exist between legal systems. After emphasizing the importance of comparative law in the field of legal translation, this volume focuses on the main concepts that characterize some of the most relevant legal systems in the world and puts theory into practice by offering some exercises on comparative law applied to translation. Guadalupe Soriano-Barabino is Senior Lecturer in Translation Studies at the University of Granada. She holds a PhD in Translation Studies (Legal Translation) as well as degrees in law and in translation and interpreting from the University of Granada. She has studied law in Spain, Ireland, the United Kingdom and France, worked as a solicitor in the United Kingdom and taught at the Universities of Ulster and Salamanca. She also has extensive experience as a sworn translator and interpreter for English, French and Spanish.

Pioneers of Linguistics Read in a New Light In what ways did earlier linguists influence the evolution of the field of linguistics? What relevance does their research have for contemporary linguistic research? The contributions in this volume pursue these questions by closely analyzing the research of eight selected scholars whose findings have significantly shaped the field of linguistics. The works examined range from the 18th century to the present and are grounded in the fields of general linguistics, phonetics, English, German, Romance and Slavic languages and literatures. The topics touched upon in this volume comprise, among others, grammar theory, historical linguistics and sociolinguistics, and also offer a general overview of the development of linguistics in Great Britain. Alistair G. H. Walker studied German Studies and Linguistics at the University of Reading. He worked as a researcher in the field of Frisian Philology at the University of Kiel for many years.

Reading Medieval European Women Writers

Medicine Matters in Five Comedies of Shakespeare

Eccentricity and Sameness

Strong Literary Witnesses from the Past

From the Renaissance Context to a Reading of the Plays

Despite a modern tendency to describe medieval women as suppressed and marginalized, a critical reading of relevant texts by female poets/writers demonstrates that women all over Europe in the premodern era enjoyed considerable freedom to express themselves and to contribute to the literary discourse of their time. This book brings together representative poets from Germany, England, France, Spain, Hungary, and Austria and thus develops an innovative pan-European perspective spanning from the tenth to the sixteenth century. Well-known writers are as much included as some rather little studied individuals, who all form part of a strong choir of female voices. Albrecht Classen is University Distinguished Professor of German Studies at the University of Arizona, researching and teaching European literature from ca. 800 to ca. 1800. In his more than 80 scholarly books and more than 600 articles he has focused on the history of mentality, gender studies, xenology, comparative literature, ecocriticism, and cultural history. He is the editor of Mediaevistik. He edited the Handbook of Medieval Studies as well as the Handbook of Medieval Culture. Recently his The Forest in Medieval German Literature appeared in print.

The first part of the book presents a general overview of some aspects of medicine and medical matters in the Renaissance. The second part proposes a close reading of five Shakespearean comedies, identifying for each one a specific medical theme and perspective that acts as unifying motif for the interpretation of the play. Luisa Camaiora is former full professor of English linguistics at the Catholic University of Milan, where she was also Dean. She was previously professor of English Literature at the Universities of Udine, Milan State and Verona. She has published on Shakespeare and English Renaissance poets and has written books and articles on eighteenth and nineteenth-century poets and novelists. Andrea A. Conti, M.D., is researcher and aggregate professor in the history of medicine at the University of Florence. His publications in Italian and international scientific journals, many indexed on the Medline database, treat the history of Western medicine, and particularly infectious diseases, bioethics, clinical epidemiology, and the methodology of biomedical research.

Discourses on Lesbianism and Desire between Women in Italy, 1860s–1930s Dispelling widespread views that female samesex desire is virtually absent from Italian literature and cultural production in the modern era, this groundbreaking study demonstrates that narratives of lesbianism are significantly more numerous than has been previously asserted. Focusing on texts published between 1860 and 1939, the author traces and analyses the evolution of discourses on female same-sex desire in and across a wide variety of genres, whether popular bestsellers, texts with limited distribution and subject to censorship, or translations from other languages. All the works are considered in relation to broader socio-cultural contexts. The analysis uncovers a plurality of different sources for these narratives of lesbianism and desire between women, showing how different layers of discourse emerge from or are reworked in and across several genres. From scientists who condemned the immoral and degenerate nature of «Sapphic» desire, to erotic publications that revelled in the pleasures of female same-sex intimacy, to portrayals of homoerotic desire by female writers that call (more or less obliquely) for its legitimization, these texts open up important new perspectives on discourses of sexuality in modern Italy. Charlotte Ross is Senior Lecturer in Italian Studies at the University of Birmingham.

Journalism and Politicization of the Women’s Movement in the Wilhelmine Period

Voicing Voluntary Childlessness

The First World War: Childhood, Adolescence and Literature

The Journal Die Frau (1893–1914) – Discourse and Rhetoric The focus of this linguistics-based study is the monthly journal Die Frau (The Woman), which was founded in Berlin in 1893 by Helene Lange, a pioneer of the German women’s movement, and published for several decades. It was the most significant voice of the moderate wing of the bourgeois women’s movement in Germany. The media analysis in this book uses refined methods of both critical and historical discourse analysis, exposing the many discursive interconnections as well as the conflicts with other groups of the women’s movement and the predominantly male opponents to female emancipation. Despite all its ostensibly subdued efforts at persuasion, Die Frau must above all be considered a militant publication, representing the interests of most of the bourgeois women’s movement. It aimed at revolution wrapped in the garb of reformation, making it both socially acceptable and effective. Helene Lange’s strategy, to proceed purposefully and systematically, yet at the same time slowly and carefully, proved successful in the long run. Christina Stange-Fayos teaches cultural history at the Department of German Studies of the University Paul Valéry in Montpellier, France.

Narratives of Non-Mothering in French The decision to reject motherhood is the subject of several key works of literature in French since the new millennium. This book looks at first-person accounts of voluntary childlessness by women writing in French. The book explores how women narrate their decision not to mother, the issues that they face in doing so and the narrative techniques that they employ to justify their stories. It asks how these authors challenge stereotypes of the childless woman by claiming their own identity in narrative, publicly proclaiming their right to choose and writing a femininity that is not connected to motherhood. Using feminist, sociological and psychoanalytic theories to interrogate non-mothering, this work is the first book-length study of narratives that counter this long-standing taboo. It brings together authors who stake out a new terrain, creating a textual space in which to take ownership of their childlessness and call for new understandings of female identity beyond maternity. Natalie Edwards is Senior Lecturer in French Studies and a member of the Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender at the University of Adelaide, Australia. She holds a PhD from Northwestern University and specializes in contemporary French and Francophone literature, autobiography, gender studies and visual culture. She is the author of Shifting Subjects: Plural Subjectivity in Contemporary Francophone Women’s Autobiography (2011) and co-editor most recently of Framing French Culture: Photography and the Visual Arts (2015).

Germany, Austria, Eastern Europe, England, Belgium and France The contributions in this volume analyze picture books as well as books for children and adolescents published between 1914 and 1918 from almost all the countries that participated in the Great War. Young Adult literature that was published after the war and recently published books for adolescents that deal with the First World War in retrospect are taken into consideration just as much as war diaries of adolescents and reading experiences that sparked an enthusiasm for war. This collection of contributions from different countries makes numerous similarities apparent. However, this volume also reveals a significant lead of the Francophone and the Anglophone world in dealing with the events of the past, even before the increased engagement of YA literature with WWI in recent years due to the Centenary in 2014. Hans-Heino Ewers is Professor of German literature with a focus on children’s literature and Director of the Centre for Children’s Literature Research at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-University of Frankfurt/Main.

The Concept of the Soul in Marcel Proust

Samuel Beckett’s Paradoxical Negativity in his Novels «Molloy», «Malone Dies» and «The Unnamable»

Frank Confessions

Homophilia, Misogyny, and the Time-Memory Correlative Bette H. Lustig uses a hermeneutic approach to the Proust texts, which are cited in French, and provides the analyses of the texts in English. Themes treating the soul include metempsychosis (transmigration), imprisonment and deliverance, eroticism and sadism, homophilia and misogyny, and time and memory. Bette H. Lustig was awarded a PhD in Romance languages and literatures from Harvard University, and, while on a Fulbright Study Grant to Paris, an M.A. in French from the Middlebury College Graduate School of French in France. Dr. Lustig has published several articles on such authors as Ludovic Janvier, François Mauriac, and Romain Gary. She has also published a textbook, Textes et pastiches : une initiation à la littérature (1999), and, most recently, Judaism in Marcel Proust: AntiSemitism, Philo-Semitism, and Judaic Perspectives in Art (Lang, 2012). Dr. Lustig has taught extensively in several colleges in the Boston area, including Harvard University, Tufts University, Boston University, and Boston College. Recently, she was also invited three times to lecture on Proust at Harvard University.

This analysis follows the allusions to a negative anthropology found in three of Samuel Beckett’s novels, in which the concept of the homo sapiens is challenged. Through the soliloquys of one (or several), perhaps insane protagonists, a panorama of the failure of evolution and history presents itself to the reader. The outcome of development seems futile. At the same time, the examination of the aporias, paradoxes and ambiguous patterns enables the assumption of an implied and ironic alternative perspective. Therefore, futility may act as a parable of an unimaginable, completely different condition, which would find indirect expression only in eloquent silence. Rüdiger Hillgärtner is Professor emeritus for English Literature at the University of Oldenburg.

Performance in the Life-Writings of Frank McCourt This book aims to redress the critical neglect of Frank McCourt’s life-writing, which has been dismissed all too frequently as «misery memoir» and deemed commercially driven or aesthetically and politically naïve. It reassesses the life cycle of McCourt’s work, investigating the experiences that shaped his desire to write and demonstrating a nuanced and multifaceted network of stimuli and references. This new approach reimagines McCourt’s work as a series of complex constructions that are inherently performative in nature (including the multiple identities that he assigns himself) and draw on recurrent clichés and stereotypical characters formed from a medley of literary, theatrical, cinematic and popular performance traditions. The author uncovers reference points, intertexts and sources that McCourt appropriates from the Irish language tradition, storytelling, nationalistic songs, the popular music of New York City, the films of Hollywood, other memoirs, Joycean literature, melodrama and theatre. This dynamic has been recognized by other performance practitioners, and the book also explores how McCourt’s life-writing has inspired creative adaptations for stage and screen. Margaret Eaton was educated at the University of Derby and the University of Nottingham. Her research interests include Irish memoir, melodrama and the representation of Irish national identity in literature and film.

Fighting Words Fifteen Books that Shaped the Postcolonial World Can a book change the world? If books were integral to the creation of the imperial global order, what role have they played in resisting that order throughout the twentieth century? To what extent have theories and movements of anti-imperial and anticolonial resistance across the planet been shaped by books as they are read across the world? Fighting Words responds to these questions by examining how the book as a cultural form has fuelled resistance to empire in the long twentieth century. Through fifteen case studies that bring together literary, historical and book historical perspectives, this collection explores the ways in which books have circulated anti-imperial ideas, as they themselves have circulated as objects and commodities within regional, national and transnational networks. What emerges is a complex portrait of the vital and multifaceted role played by the book in both the formation and the form of anticolonial resistance, and the development of the postcolonial world. Dominic Davies is a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the English Faculty at the University of Oxford, where he also obtained his DPhil in Post/Colonial Literature.

History and Fiction Writers, their Research, Worlds and Stories Fiction plays a vital role in describing history and transmitting culture. How writers understand and use history can play an equally important role in how they navigate a novel. This book explores the nature of the author’s relationship with history and fiction – often using writers’ own words – as well as the role history plays in fiction. Focusing on genre fiction, this study considers key issues in the relationship between history and fiction, such as how writers contextualise the history they use in their fiction and how they incorporate historical research. The book also addresses the related topic of world building using history, discussing the connections between the science fiction writers’ notion of world building and the scholarly understanding of story space and explaining the mechanics of constructing the world of the novel. This book places the writing of fiction into a wider framework of history and writing and encourages dialogue between writers and historians. Gillian Polack is a writer, editor, historian and critic based at the Australian National University. Her main research interests are cultural development and transmission in both the Middle Ages and the contemporary period. She has published several novels and seventeen short stories and has edited two anthologies. One of her stories won a Victorian Ministry of the Arts award and three more have been listed as recommended reading in the international lists of world’s best fantasy and science fiction short stories. Her non-fiction includes work on historiography, the Middle Ages, Arthurian studies and literature.

The Practice of Knowing and Knowing in Practices

The Axiology of Friedrich Nietzsche

Nietzsche and Dostoevsky

This book is a philosophical analysis of knowledge in practices, focused on knowing how, tacit knowledge and expert knowledge. Knowing in action is the key concept. It covers understanding, well-functioning routines as well as successful learning processes. It is argued that knowledge-in-action is more basic than propositional or theoretical knowledge. Key notions are knowing as a kind of attentiveness or a way of being in the world, knowing as continued learning, and knowledge as what leads people in the best way. The book is a contribution to the contemporary philosophical discussions about knowing how, tacit knowledge and expert knowledge. At the same time, it is written as an interdisciplinary and case-based introduction to the epistemology of knowing and learning.

In his unmistakable style, Friedrich Nietzsche approached the issue of all classes of values, not only the moral ones. The author presents Nietzsche as a philosopher of values par excellence by analysing vital and economic values, religious and political values, moral and aesthetic values, and, in addition to all these, value in general, with all its implications for human life and humanity. Nietzsche had an instinct for value, a faculty for feeling the finest nuances of the phenomenon of value, and a passion for knowing the axiological universe. These were extraordinary and have rarely been seen in the history of culture.

Bengt Molander, Professor of Philosophy at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, studied philosophy in Uppsala and Oxford. He has been a visiting scholar at the University of Konstanz, the University of Pittsburgh, Harvard University and the University of Cambridge.

Nicolae Râmbu is Professor of the Faculty of Philosophy and Social-Political Sciences, «Alexandru Ioan Cuza» University, Jassy, Romania. His research interests include German idealism, axiology, philosophy of culture, and intercultural communication.

On the Verge of Nihilism The first time that Nietzsche crossed the path of Dostoevsky was in the winter of 1886–87. While in Nice, Nietzsche discovered in a bookshop the volume L’esprit souterrain. Two years later, he defined Dostoevsky as the only psychologist from whom he had anything to learn. The second, metaphorical encounter between Nietzsche and Dostoevsky happened on the verge of nihilism. Nietzsche announced the death of God, whereas Dostoevsky warned against the danger of atheism. This book describes the double encounter between Nietzsche and Dostoevsky. Following the chronological thread offered by Nietzsche’s correspondence, the author provides a detailed analysis of Nietzsche’s engagement with Dostoevsky from the very beginning of his discovery to the last days before his mental breakdown. The second part of this book aims to dismiss the wide-spread and stereotypical reading according to which Dostoevsky foretold and criticized in his major novels some of Nietzsche’s most dangerous and nihilistic theories. In order to reject such reading, the author focuses on the following moral dilemma: If God does not exist, is everything permitted? Paolo Stellino is a postdoctoral fellow at the Nova Institute of Philosophy (IFILNOVA), New University of Lisbon. He is a member of the Nietzsche International Lab (NIL). His publications mainly focus on Nietzsche’s philosophy. On this topic, he has co-edited two books and published several articles in international journals.

Nature: Its Conceptual Architecture This book breaks new ground by exploring how naturalism depends on an underlying account of nature. It examines in detail how conceptual, historical, and scientific constraints affect the concept of nature in various domains of philosophy, and how, in the opposite sense, these constraints are themselves affected by the concept of nature. Louis Caruana, S.J., obtained his PhD from the University of Cambridge, and is now Dean of Philosophy at the Gregorian University, Rome, and Research Associate of Heythrop College, University of London, where he used to be Reader. His published books and research papers deal with points of interaction between philosophy of science, metaphysics, and philosophy of religion.

What Is Film? In What Is Film?, Julie N. Books critically evaluates three philosophical doctrines of film realism (transparency, illusionism, and perceptual realism) and defends her view that films are creative works of art. By examining contemporary films, such as computer-animated films and films with computer-generated images, Dr. Books shows how films are creative works of art, thereby undermining the longheld view that films are slavish recordings of reality. This book is ideal for academics and courses on the philosophy of film, film theory, film history, filmmaking, metaphysics, and the philosophy of art. Julie N.

Redesigning Life

Humans and Automata

Eugenics, Biopolitics, and the Challenge of the Techno-Human Condition

A Social Study of Robotics

The emerging development of genetic enhancement technologies has recently become the focus of a public and philosophical debate between proponents and opponents of a liberal eugenics – that is, the use of these technologies without any overall direction or governmental control. Inspired by Foucault’s, Agamben’s and Esposito’s writings about biopower and biopolitics, the author sees both positions as equally problematic, as both presuppose the existence of a stable, autonomous subject capable of making decisions concerning the future of human nature, while in the age of genetic technology the nature of this subjectivity shall be less an origin than an effect of such decisions. Bringing together a biopolitical critique of the way this controversial issue has been dealt with in liberal moral and political philosophy with a philosophical analysis of the nature of and the relation between life, politics, and technology, the author sets out to outline the contours of a more responsible engagement with genetic technologies based on the idea that technology is an intrinsic condition of humanity.

The book takes a close look at the social dimensions of robotics. It examines some of the projects on which robotic engineers are presently working, explores the dreams and hopes connected with these undertakings and determines if there is a relation between automation and unemployment within the socioeconomic system. Furthermore, it explores the possible futures generated by the development of artificial intelligence and outlines the core ideas of roboethics. Last but not least, it examines the systems of military robots, with special emphasis on the ethical issues raised by the design, construction and utilization of these systems of weaponry. Riccardo Campa is Professor Extraordinarius of Sociology of Science and Technology at the Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland, and Fellow of the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies.

Empractic Reason

The Antiphilosophers

Dancing with Absurdity

Following Martin Heidegger, Ernst Bloch, Karl Bühler and Pirmin Stekeler, this book proposes a new philosophy of praxis, connecting the existential analysis of the emotions of Bloch and Heidegger with the Empractic theories of action and knowledge. The Empractic stands in stark contrast to the civilization disease of hyper-reflexivity. Rather than suffering from an excess of self-confidence, we suffer from an excess of reflexivity. Instead of solving our life problems, the boundless rationalization of all aspects of life creates new ones instead. A philosophy of the Empractic aims to conceive of a theory for something that also functions without any theory at all.

In this volume, author Steven L. Bindeman presents a survey of the key figures in postmodern antiphilosophy. The author demonstrates how the antiphilosophers are united in questioning the centrality of the great cornerstones of western metaphysics – time, self, universe, and God – because of their insistence that there is no way to reach beyond any of these words to the actual things to which they refer.

Your Most Cherished Beliefs (and All Your Others) Are Probably Wrong Dancing with Absurdity explores the limitations of knowledge and argues that neither reasoning nor direct observation can be trusted. Not only are they unreliable sources, they do not even justify assigning probabilities to claims about what we can know. This position, called radical skepticism, has intrigued philosophers since before the birth of Christ, yet nobody has been able to refute it.

A Conversation between the Theology of Karl Rahner and the Philosophy of John Macmurray

An Analysis of Jesus’ Verbal Rudeness in Matthew’s Gospel This book is an informed, focused, deep, and creative analysis of the topic of (im)politeness applied to Jesus in Matthew’s Gospel, with indepth conclusions and analysis about the Matthean Jesus’ (im)politeness. This study utilizes innovative methodological approaches regarding the analysis and interpretation of the subject in Matthew’s Gospel, finding similarities with the language and (im)polite engagements of other first-century Greco-Roman characters and the Matthean Jesus in similar contexts. The (Im)Polite Jesus would make an excellent addition for studies on Matthew’s Gospel or courses focused on biblical studies, biblical literature, biblical hermeneutics, methodologies, and in discussions about exposing interpreters’ cultural biases when addressing the topic of (im)politeness. Carlos Olivares is a Chilean Adventist pastor who obtained his Ph.D. in biblical studies from the University of Auckland (New Zealand). His area of interest is the New Testament, in particular the Gospel of Matthew, hermeneutics, and the Book of Revelation. His publications include several journal articles, both in Spanish and English, as well as a contribution to Elaine Mary Wainwright’s The Gospel According to Matthew: The Basileia of the Heavens Is Near at Hand (2014). Currently, Dr. Olivares is New Testament Lecturer at the Universidad Adventista de Bolivia (Bolivia). He is also a visiting lecturer at Universidad Peruana Unión (Perú) and Universidad Adventista del Plata (Argentina), where he teaches at the postgraduate level.

This book examines the theology of the Brazilian Jesuit and liberation theologian João Batista Libanio (1932–2014). It offers insights into both his biography and bibliography. Special attention is given to the significance of his hometown in Brazil, Minas Gerais. From a predominantly fundamental theological perspective, the author classifies Libanio’s theology. He also develops a guideline from his theology, which he detects in the Second Vatican Council. The Council itself is explored in light of both the characterization and comprehension of Libanio’s theological position. Alexandre Pessoa Garcia is a Catholic Priest of the parish São José Operário of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Osasco located in the Ecclesiastical province of São Paulo.

Original Language: German

The book explores the theological understanding of the human person. It does so by placing the theology of person in Karl Rahner’s writings in dialogue with the philosophy of the relational person in the works of John Macmurray. It is through the method of dialogue that new insights into the theology of person arise.

An Anthropological Perspective Religion: An Anthropological Perspective provides a critical view of religion focusing upon important but overlooked topics such as religion, cognition, and prehistory; science, rationality, and religion; altered states of consciousness, entheogens and religious experience; religion and the paranormal; magic and divination; religion and ecology; fundamentalism; and religion and violence.

Virtual reality allows human beings to submerge into worlds in which their areas of responsibility are left only faintly visible. At the same time, cyberspace creates paradigms of religious quality, as humans create their own virtual doubles. Entering cyberspace creates neurophysiologically measurable feelings of happiness. However, the experiential content itself is irrelevant, as it is the subjective intensity of the experience that matters. The soughtafter happiness transcends the realm of the world into a virtual hereafter. On the one hand, human identities are multiplied, on the other hand, fantasies of Artificial Intelligence begin to gain shape. The authors of this volume tackle the question which impacts this development has on ethical subjects, where man and machine are mixed. Lukas Ohly is Professor for Systematic Theology and Philosophy of Religion at the Goethe University of Frankfurt. Catharina Wellhöfer studied Secondary School Education at the Goethe University of Frankfurt. She majored in Theology and Latin.

Mircea Eliade

From Magic to Myth

Studies in Mystical Traditions

Mircea Eliade: From Magic to Myth addresses a series of topics that have been neglected in scholarship. First and foremost, the book looks at the early Romanian background of some of Eliade’s ideas, especially his magical universe, which took on a more mythical nature with his arrival in the West. Other chapters deal with Eliade’s attitude toward Judaism, which is crucial for his phenomenology of religion, and the influences of Kabbalah on his early work. Later chapters address his association with the Romanian extreme right movement known as the Iron Guard and the reverberation of some of the images in the post-war Eliade as well as with the status of Romanian culture in his eyes after World War II. The volume concludes by assessing the impact of Eliade’s personal experiences on the manner in which he presented religion. The book will be useful in classes in the history of religion and the history of Eastern European intellectuals.

The book is devoted to the comparative study of contemporary mysticism. Chapters written by leading scholars of Jewish, Buddhist and Christian Mysticism address the dramatic global proliferation and transformation of mystical traditions in recent decades. This volume is suited for courses on contemporary or classical mysticism, comparative religion, Jewish studies and Buddhist studies and more.

Schleiermacher maintained that «to make proselytes out of unbelievers is deeply engrained in the character of religion.» But why do religions proselytize? Do all religions seek conversions? How are religions adapting their proclamations in a deeply plural world? This book provides a detailed analysis of the missionary impulse as it is manifested across a range of religious and irreligious traditions. World Religions and Their Missions systematically compares the motives and methods of the «missions» of Atheism, the Bahá’í Faith, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Mormonism. The text also develops innovative frameworks for interreligious encounters and comparative mission studies. Aaron J. Ghiloni (PhD, University of Queensland) is a faculty member at Trinity College Queensland (Australia), an affiliate lecturer at Australian Catholic University, and an honorary research fellow at the University of Queensland.

Rightly Dividing the Word of Truth Studies in Honour of Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia Metropolitan Kallistos of Diokleia is unquestionably the best-known Orthodox theologian in the Western world today. This work is designed to demonstrate the spread of his own interests and concerns and range from the Desert Fathers to modern church dialogue, from patristics to church music, from the Philokalia to human ‘priesthood’. Andreas Andreopoulos is Reader in Orthodox Christianity at the University of Winchester. He has founded and directs the only fully distance Master’s degree in Orthodox Theology. His publications include Gazing on God: Trinity, Church and Salvation in the Orthodox Church (2013); This is My Beloved Son: The Transfiguration of Christ (2012); The Sign of the Cross: The Gesture, the Mystery, the History (2006); Art as Theology: From the Postmodern to the Medieval (2006); and Metamorphosis: The Transfiguration in Byzantine Theology and Iconography (2005).

From Samos to Soho The Unorthodox Life of Joseph Georgirenes, a Greek Archbishop Until now, Georgirenes has been best known for having established the first Greek Orthodox church in London in Soho, and for publishing a detailed account of the condition and practices of the Orthodox church living under Ottoman rule. For the first time this biography reveals the extraordinary further adventures of this much-travelled priest. John Penrose Barron was a classical scholar and Philhellene, educated at Clifton College and Balliol College, Oxford. He was Professor of Greek at King’s College London and Director of the Institute of Classical Studies and, subsequently, Master of St Peter’s College, Oxford. His DPhil thesis on the history of Samos in the Archaic period led him to Georgirenes’ account of the island of Samos published in 1677, which he found in the library of Balliol College. John Barron had completed all but one chapter of this biography when he died in 2008.

Re-visiting World War I Interpretations and Perspectives of the Great Conflict This book discusses various aspects of World War I. It focuses on topics proposed by contributors resulting from their own research interests. Nevertheless, as a result of common efforts, re-visiting those chosen aspects of the Great War of 1914–1918 enables the presentation of a volume that shows the multidimensional nature and consequences of this turning point in the history of particular nations, if not all mankind. This book, if treated as an intellectual journey through several continents, shows that World War I was not exclusively Europe’s war, and that it touched – in different ways – more parts of the globe than usually considered. Jarosław Suchoples is Associate Professor at the Institute of Malaysian and International Studies, Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia, where he specialized in European studies, transnational late modern history and international relations. Stephanie James is adjunct researcher at the School of International Studies, Flinders University, Australia. Her research interests involve Irish-Australian history and the parallels between Irish- and German-Australians in terms of their identity.

The Men with Broken Faces

Between Coral Reefs and Barbed Wire

«Gueules Cassées» of the First World War Facially wounded servicemen were perhaps the ultimate victims of the First World War. They became walking reminders of the conflict and their experiences reveal the impact of the war not only on the combatants but also on European societies at large. This book explores for the first time the individual and collective significance of facially disfigured First World War combatants in France, Germany and Great Britain. The analysis undertaken in this book uncovers how the wounded perceived and presented themselves and how they were perceived and represented by others. Artistic and literary representations are considered, along with initiatives carried out by hospitals, the government and the combatants’ fellow countrymen. With an interdisciplinary and comparative approach, this study illuminates our understanding of how the combatant and the onlooker made sense of the experience and the memory of the war.

Detained on Rottnest Island, 1914–1915 By way of numerous preserved photographs, this book documents life in the internment camp on Rottnest Island (Australia), where hostile civil foreigners from Germany and Austria-Hungary as well as indigenous prisoners of Australian soldiers were detained during the First World War. Nonetheless, moments of fraternization across national and ethnical boundaries developed. In retrospect, the coexistence of men from distinct backgrounds, with no shared language but who still managed to maintain a peaceful community amidst World War I, may serve as an important resource of inspiration. Alexandra Ludewig is Head of the School of Humanities and Professor of European Languages and Studies at the University of Western Australia.

Marjorie Gehrhardt is Lecturer in French Studies in the Department of Modern Languages and European Studies at the University of Reading. She completed her PhD in French Studies at the University of Exeter in 2014 and subsequently worked as a researcher on the EU-funded project 1914FACES2014. Her research focuses on war and its representations in twentieth-century Western Europe, with a particular interest in the reintegration of veterans and the role of charities in wartime.

Staging the Fascist War

Anna Haag and her Secret Diary of the Second World War

The Making of a Gentleman Nazi

The Ministry of Popular Culture and Italian Propaganda on the Home Front, 1938–1943 Historians regard the Italian home front during the Second World War as an observation post from which to study the relationship between Fascism and society during the years of the collapse of the Mussolini regime. Yet the role of propaganda in influencing that relationship has received little attention. The media played a crucial role in setting the stage for the regime’s image under the intense pressures of wartime. The Ministry of Popular Culture, under Mussolini’s supervision, maintained control not only over the press, but also over radio, cinema, theatre, the arts and all forms of popular culture. When this Fascist media narrative was confronted by the sense of vulnerability among civilians following the first enemy air raids in June 1940, it fell apart like a house of cards. Drawing on largely unexplored sources such as government papers, personal memoirs, censored letters and confidential reports, Staging the Fascist War analyses the crisis of the Mussolini regime in the years from 1938 to 1943 through the perspective of a propaganda programme that failed to bolster Fascist myths at a time of total war. Luigi Petrella holds a PhD in history from Newcastle University, where he is a teaching assistant. He previously worked as a journalist in Italy for twenty-five years.

A Democratic German Feminist’s Response to the Catastrophe of National Socialism What secrets were kept in the diaries of those who opposed the Nazi regime? Stuttgart-based author Anna Haag used her diaries to challenge Nazi activities both as a woman and a democrat. Tracing the rise of Hitler, military conquests and Jewish deportations, Haag’s diary offers a fascinating look into the life and mind of one writer of the time. Edward Timms, Research Professor in History at the University of Sussex, is a cultural historian with a special interest in twentiethcentury German and Austrian literature and politics, including radical critiques of the militarism that culminated in the two World Wars. He has co-authored and co-edited numerous publications, including Romantic Communist: The Life and Work of Nazim Hikmet (with Saime Göksu), Writing after Hitler: The Work of Jakov Lind (with Silke Hassler and Andrea Hammel) and Pictorial Narrative in the Nazi Period (with Deborah Schultz). Best known for his two-volume study Karl Kraus – Apocalyptic Satirist, he has also published the first complete translation of Kraus’s anti-war drama The Last Days of Mankind (with Fred Bridgham). Further details can be found in his memoirs, Taking up the Torch: English Institutions, German Dialectics and Multicultural Commitments.

Albert Speer’s Politics of History in the Federal Republic of Germany At the Nuremberg Trial and through his bestselling books, Albert Speer, Hitler’s architect and minister, could successfully project an image of himself as the «gentleman Nazi». Using hitherto unexplored archival sources, this book looks at those aspects of his career that Speer retrospectively manipulated (e.g. his resistance to Hitler’s Nero order), to construct this image. The evolution of the «Speer myth», analysed here, shows how West Germany’s politics influenced Speer’s narrative, as well as the impact that his image had on Federal Republic’s efforts to cope with its past. This book also examines the role of historians and public intellectuals in and outside Germany in reinforcing the Speer myth – the British historian Hugh Trevor Roper and the Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal among others. Baijayanti Roy completed her PhD at the Goethe University of Frankfurt. Her research interests include the history of Nazi Germany, as well as German Indologists and Indology (late 19th to mid-20th century).

Harmonious Disagreement

The Conceptualization of Race in Colonial Puerto Rico, 1800–1850

Matteo Ricci and His Closest Chinese Friends The fascinating story of Matteo Ricci (1552– 1610) changing himself while trying to change the religious faith of the Chinese has been told many times. As a Jesuit, Ricci pushed Christian evangelism by claiming a theistic affinity with Confucianism and by presenting himself as a defender of Confucian orthodoxy from Buddhism. Yu Liu received his PhD in English from the State University of New York at Buffalo and is currently Professor of English at Niagara County Community College in Sanborn, New York. Dr. Liu is the recipient of a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation fellowship (2006– 2007) and a Fulbright lecturing-research fellowship at the City University of Hong Kong (2012–2013). He is also the author of Poetics and Politics: The Revolutions of Wordsworth (1999) and Seeds of a Different Eden: Chinese Gardening Ideas and a New English Aesthetic Ideal (2008).

The Conceptualization of Race in Colonial Puerto Rico, 1800–1850 illuminates the role people of African descent played in the building of a Spanish Caribbean society during the social upheaval of the early nineteenth century. Dungy uses gender, color, and class differences as lenses to understand a colonial society that was regulated by social relationships. Kathryn R. Dungy is Assistant Professor of Caribbean and Latin American History at Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, Vermont.

From Charles I to Charles Taylor 2nd Edition The modern use of international tribunals to try heads of state for genocide and crimes against humanity is often considered a positive development. In A History of Political Trials, John Laughland shows that trials of heads of state are in fact not new, and that previous trials throughout history have themselves violated the law and due process.

Young people and their activities always have been a part of history – yet such narratives have remained mostly untold and often lost in the sands of time. This unprecedented and international collection sheds light on youth’s hidden histories from the nineteenth century to the early twenty-first century: whether from the American Civil War, Maoist China, postcolonial Greenland, or contemporary Iran. These tales of leisure, identity, and belonging take readers into the heart of youth history and uncover heretofore unrecognized cultural contributions that young people have made across time and throughout the world. Christine Feldman-Barrett is Lecturer in Sociology at Griffith University. She was a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Hamburg between 2006 and 2007 and is the author of We Are the Mods: A Transnational History of a Youth Subculture (Peter Lang, 2009).

War and Peace

Dissent! Refracted

Cultural Paradigms

Histories, Aesthetics and Cultures of Dissent

This book examines the interplay between war and peace, two key concepts in political science. In their reflexive reference, they are intricately linked and barely separable from one another, as the presence of the one is contingent on the absence of the other. What is considered war or peace in different cultural contexts? To what extent are both concepts also utilized as political fight concepts? According to the authors, this calls for an analysis of different and competitive notions of war and peace. The examination of the entangled nature of culture with (ideas of) war and peace establishes a new research perspective, as it allows tangible frames of reference to be developed that may serve as guidelines for political actions. Samuel Salzborn is Professor for Basics of the Social Sciences at the Institute of Political Science of the Georg-August-University Göttingen. Holger Zapf is Lecturer at the Institute of Political Science of the Georg-August-University Göttingen.

This collection of essays addresses the ongoing problem of dissent from a broad range of disciplinary perspectives: political philosophy, intellectual history, literary studies, aesthetics, architectural history and conceptualizations of the political past. Taking a global perspective, the volume examines the history of dissent both inside and outside the West, through events in the twentieth and twentyfirst centuries both nearer to our own times as well as more distant, and through a range of styles reflecting how contested and pressing the problem of dissent in fact is. Drawing on a range of authors and international problematics, the contributions discuss the multiple ways in which we refract memories of dissent in cultural, historical and aesthetic context. It also discusses the diverse ideas, images and phenomena we use to do so.

Dissidents, Technology, and Democratic Discourse in the Middle East

History, Culture and Memory

The book reviews the democratization dilemma in the Middle East, describes the unique role that technology played in the pursuit of democracy, and analyses the contributions and impact of expat communities on that process. It is based on over 60 in-depth interviews with dissidents, expat leaders, journalist, and researchers. Nir T. Boms is a research fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies at Tel Aviv University and a professor at the Rothberg School of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. His research interests include the Middle East, dissidents, democratization, and terrorism.

The Cold War left indelible traces on the city, where polarities on the global stage crystallized and intersected with political and social dynamics predating and bypassing the Blocs. This collection taps into the rich fabric of memories, histories and cultural interactions of thirteen cities worldwide and the lived experience of urban communities during the long Cold War: activated and mobilized by atomic technologies, taking tourist photographs, attending commercial fairs, enjoying the cinema and the ballet, singing in choirs, paying respect in local cemeteries, visiting museums, and responding to town councils, unions and the local press. Literature, film, photography, the press, the monument, the cemetery, the factory, the ruin, the archive and the natural ecosystem are some of the key frameworks of cultural production elucidated here with a view to countering and exploding received myths about the Cold War. Katia Pizzi is Director of the Centre for the Study of Cultural Memory at the Institute of Modern Languages Research, School of Advanced Study, University of London, where she is also Senior Lecturer in Italian Studies.

Trade Unions and Social Dialogue

Africa in 21st Century US and EU Agendas

The Secession of Katanga: A Testimony

Analyzing Western Models

A Comparative Analysis

(July 1960 – January 1963)

Economic downsizing, the development of the service sector and globalization have led to decisive changes in companies and the relationship between trade unions, managers and the state. National models have made way for more fluctuating frameworks. This book provides a clear picture of the principal changes that have affected the trade unions and the labor relations in European and North American enterprises. It allows to move beyond stereotypes attached to the Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, Rhenish models.

This book investigates issues pertaining to the US and EU agendas in Africa since the dawn of the new century. It discusses how the African continent has featured within the US and EU foreign policy agendas, by looking at ensuing gaps between a rhetoric that claimed to have put Africa within the high politics agenda and the reality. The case studies analyse the reasons for the very different acknowledgements of USAFRICOM and JAES P&S, even though both policies state to aim the same: support Africa in tackling its own security concerns. The book concludes with a deliberation on which of the two outlooks seems to offer an appropriate approach to the context and which offers pragmatic solutions.

On 30 June 1960, the Congo is no longer a Belgian colony but an independent state. Under the leadership of Moïse Tshombe, the province of Katanga quickly seceded. Two years later, however, the ONUC puts an end to the matter. In this book, the author analyzes these tragic events.

Combining a variety of approaches, this book examines the multilateral institutionalization of the integrated cooperation between «the Asias»: history, diplomacy, political science, conflict studies, etc., situating aspects of regional dimensions at the heart of international relations after the Cold War.

This book analyzes how Europe and Asia compete with, but also complement, each other in the new world order after the Cold War. The focus is on the diverse ways in which these two territories have positioned themselves in the new balance of power, which is characterized by pluricentric competition.

New Towns and Satellite Cities in their Metropolises In the face of growing needs and problems around urbanization, new strategies have been implemented for the development of ‘New Towns’. The urgent need to create better and more liveable cities is now inextricably linked with the integration of environmental principles, in order to prevent the waste of resources and mitigate climate change.

Citizenship, Residence Rights and the Constitution in Slovenia

Transitional Justice in Brazil and Issues of Criminal Liability of the Military Dictatorship

Circulating Ideas of Policy and Legal Decisions Processes in Korea and Germany

The author examines the Transitional Justice movement in Brazil – an association that confronts past offences of state-supported crime. After the transition from a repressive dictatorial system to one rooted in democracy, the question arises how to respond to past violations of human rights. In the case of Brazil, this affects the penal dealing with the past after the collapse of the dictatorial regime. It concerns the key question whether people responsible for system conform violations of human rights can be prosecuted today.

This book analyzes policy translation and its ends, how the concept of translation explains the emergence and (ex-)changes of policy ideas in different places and/or across borders in general, as well as the effectiveness of this concept in analyzing cases of actual policy dissemination. The countries to be discussed are South Korea and Germany.

This book is about the «erasure», a process by which the Republic of Slovenia unlawfully deprived 25 671 of its residents of their legal status following the country’s secession from the former Yugoslavia in 1992. After losing their status, these individuals were left without any rights on the territory of Slovenia. Since the Slovenian state refused to remedy the problem for many years, the European Court of Human Rights took up the case. In the 2012 Kuric and Others v. Slovenia decision, the Grand Chamber found that Slovenia had violated human rights. This book describes the full background of this case and examines its constitutional implications. Neža Kogovšek Šalamon holds an LLM in international human rights law from the University of Notre Dame (USA) and a PhD from the Law School of the University of Ljubljana (Slovenia). Her research fields include administrative and constitutional law, fundamental rights, citizenship, migration, asylum and non-discrimination.

Availability and Addiction in Slot Games

The Classification of Armed Conflicts According to International Law

The Criminal Humanities

This book addresses the link between the wide and easy availability of games of chance and the extent of pathological gambling in a population. The issue is discussed controversially and focuses primarily on slot games. Legislation allows for measures that aim at reducing the risks. The author proposes several potential precautions and evaluates their effectiveness.

Types of Conflicts, their Categorization as well as Legal Consequences and their Effects on Planning and Conducting Military Operations

Tilman Becker is Managing Director of the Gambling Research Center at the University of Hohenheim.

Original Language: German

With this highly topical subject matter, Karl Edlinger addresses military commanders, political decision-makers and readers who are interested in geopolitical issues. The legal framework for today’s situations of conflict is deduced and its consequences for both the planning and conducting of military operations are illustrated. Depending on the type of armed conflict, International Law determines the rights and obligations of the military forces involved. These are increasingly applied to atypical situations of conflict: for peace-keeping operations of the United Nations, the fight against terrorist organizations or against international crime. This book highlights potential consequences by way of example of the air strike in Kunduz. Karl Edlinger is Brigadier General and legal consultant in the Austrian Armed Forces. He is a lecturer at the International Institute of Humanitarian Law in San Remo as well as other international educational institutions.

Marketing Luxury Goods Online

Attracting Attention

The marketing of luxury goods faces a fundamental challenge: balancing sales growth against exclusiveness. In today’s digital world, this trade-off has become even more challenging. A luxury brand’s fragile concept of exclusiveness is seemingly incompatible with the ubiquitous availability provided by the mass medium Internet. The author addresses this trade-off both conceptually and empirically. First, the author conceptually examines the specific marketing-mix for luxury goods in terms of product, price, communications, and distribution management. Second, this marketing-mix is applied to the online environment. Third, the author empirically tests the effects of the online accessibility of luxury goods on consumer perceptions of scarcity and desirability. Philipp Nikolaus Kluge earned the doctoral degree in marketing at the WHU-Otto Beisheim School of Management in Vallendar, Germany. He studied business administration at the Rotterdam School of Management, the Warsaw School of Economics (SGH), and the University of Passau.

Microfinance

Communication and the Economy

Handbook of Business Ethics

Battling a Wicked Problem To address the wicked problem of poverty, microfinance has innovated with new philosophies, changing ethics, differing missions, institutional partnerships, latest technologies and new products. This multi-disciplinary book uses cases studies and field research to present these rapid innovations, useful for scholars, investors and practitioners. Professor Arvind Ashta, holder of the Banque Populaire Chair in Microfinance at the Burgundy School of Business (ESC Dijon), has degrees in economics, business management, political science and law from prestigious institutions in India and France. He has been teaching and researching microfinance for the last decade, with a prolific publication record in academic and professional journals and books. He has been invited to present courses and seminars on microfinance across the world.

History, Value and Agency This collection brings together established and emerging scholars in communication studies to examine the relationship between communication and the economy in contemporary society. Through concrete case studies and theoretically informed essays, the chapters explore a range of important disciplinary topics – from the rhetoric of economics to the role of language in mediating financial crises. Joshua S. Hanan (PhD, University of Texas– Austin) is Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of Denver. Mark Hayward (PhD, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill) is Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at York University.

Ethics in the New Economy This is a completely revised edition of the classic Ethics in the Economy.

Instead ethics are presented as fundamental to economic activities and relevant at all levels of economic activity, from individual and organizational to societal and global. Laszlo Zsolnai is professor and director of the Business Ethics Center at the Corvinus University of Budapest. He is chairman of the Business Ethics Faculty Group of the CEMS – The Global Alliance in Management Education.
