The Architecture Chronicle

The Architecture of Industry

Diary of an Architectural Practice

Changing Paradigms in Industrial

Building and Planning

Jan Kattein, University College London, UK

Edited by Mathew Aitchison, University of Queensland,


Design Research in Architecture

During the last 30 years, technological, social, economic

and environmental changes have brought about the most
dramatic evolution to architectural practice that has taken
place since the profession emerged during the Italian
Renaissance. Whilst these changes have transformed the
way architects work, few contemporary books discuss
architectural practice. The Architecture Chronicle sets out
to define the role of the contemporary architect in the light
of these changes. It also engages with the design and
production process and investigates how design decisions
are being made and by whom they are executed.

Architecture in an
Age of Uncertainty

Through a series of case studies, this book documents the

changing nature of industrial building and planning from
the beginning of the twentieth century to the beginning
of the twenty-first century. Drawing on research from the
United States, Europe and Australia, this collection of
essays highlights key moments in industrial architecture
and planning representative of the wider paradigms in
the field. Areas of analysis include industrial production,
hydroelectricity, aerospace, logistics, finance, scientific
research and mining. This richly illustrated collection will
be of interest for a wide range of built environment studies,
incorporating findings from both historical and theoretical
scholarship and design research.

Ashgate Studies in Architecture

Camera Constructs

After two decades which saw the construction industry

flourish, has come a sudden period of instability, where
architecture firms have been jettisoning employees at an
unprecedented rate as building projects dry up. This edited
volume brings together scholars, critics, and architects
to discuss the present state of uncertainty in the practice
and discipline of architecture. The chapters are organized
into three main areas of inquiry: economics, practice, and
technology. Within this larger framework, authors explore
issues of security, ecological design, disaster architecture,
the future of architectural practice, and the ethical
obligations of the social practice of design.

Camera Constructs reflects critically on the varied

interactions of the different practices by which
photographers, artists, architects, theorists and historians
engage with the relationship of the camera to architecture,
the city and the evolution of Modernism. Including twentythree essays by a wide range of historians and theorists
this book provides a rich and highly original analysis of the
relationship of photography to built form from the early
modern period to the present day.

Focusing on how an important nineteenth-century

architect addressed the already shifting relation between
architecture, time and history, this book offers insights on
issues still relevant today-the struggle between imitation
and innovation, the definition (or rejection) of aesthetic
experience, the grounds of architectural judgment (who
decides and how), or fundamentally, how to act (i.e.
build) when there is no longer a single grand narrative
but a plurality of possible histories. Six drawings provide
the foundation of an itinerary through Charles Robert
Cockerells conception of architecture, and into the depths
of drawings and buildings.

Charles Robert Cockerell,

Architect in Time



Rafael Schacter, University College London, UK

Based on an in-depth ethnographic study working with
some of the worlds most influential Independent Public
Artists, this book takes a completely new approach. Placing
these illicit aesthetic practices within a broader historical,
political, and aesthetic context, it argues that they are in
fact both intrinsically ornamental (working within a classic
architectonic framework), as well as innately ordered (within
a highly ritualised, performative structure). Rather than
disharmonic, destructive forms, rather than ones solely
working within the dynamics of the market, these insurgent
images are seen to reface rather than deface the city,
operating within a modality of contemporary civic ritual.

Raw: Architectural Engagements

with Nature
Edited by Solveig Be, Hege Charlotte Faber and
Brit Strandhagen, Norwegian University of Science
and Technology, Norway
Nature inheres in many aesthetic forms of expression. In
architecture, however, nature emerges with a particular
power and clarity, which makes architecture a raw kind of
art. Thus, by using the concept of raw as a focal point, this
book provides new approaches to architecture in a broad
sense, as well as other aesthetic and artistic practices, and
will be of interest to readers from different fields of the arts
and humanities, spanning from philosophy and theology to
history of art, architecture and music.

Reading the Architecture of

the Underprivileged Classes
Edited by Nnamdi Elleh, University of Cincinnati, USA
This book not only shows how architects can learn from
traditional or vernacular dwellings in order to create
habitations for the people of low-income groups in public
housing scenarios, but also demonstrates how the
architecture of the economically underprivileged classes
goes beyond culturally-inspired tectonic interpretations
of vernacular traditions by architects for high profile
clients. It explores how the resourceful dwellings of the
underprivileged inhabitants of the great cities in developing
parts of the world pioneered certain concepts of modernism
and contemporary design practices such as sustainable and
de-constructivist design.

The Architecture of Franco Albini

Ashgate Studies in Architecture

Kay Bea Jones illuminating study of selected works by

Studio Albini will reintroduce his contributions to one of
the most productive periods in Italian design. Suspending
Modernity follows the evolution of Albinis most important
buildings and projects, even as they reveal his apprehensive
attitudes about the modern condition. Albini clarified
the vital role of tradition in modern architecture as he
experimented with domestic space. His cohort defied CIAM
ideologies to re-socialize postwar housing and speculate on
ways of reviving Italian cities. Jones argues here that Albinis
masterful use of materials and architectural expression
mark an epic paradigm shift in the modern period.

Focusing on the Ghetto Fighters House, the worlds first

Holocaust museum; Yad Vashem, Israels national Holocaust
memorial in Jerusalem; the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum
in Washington, and the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, the book
discusses how the representation of history by architecture
creates a dialectic process in which architecture mediates the
past to the present, while at the same time creating a present
saturated with historical contexts. It shows how, together, they
are incorporated into one another and create a new reality: past
and present intertwined.

interdisciplinary book brings together some of the leading
thinkers including Neil Brenner, Edward J. Soja, Eric
Swyngedouw and Christine Boyer to draw a general picture
of the global processes of urbanization today. Gathering
together a range of studies from across the globe, the
common denoominator are Lefebvres concepts, such as
the production of space, perceived, conceived, and lived

everyday life, which are developed beyond the context of

Bishop Robert Grosseteste and Lincoln Cathedral is an
in-depth investigation of Grossetestes relationship to
the medieval cathedral at Lincoln and the surrounding
city. This book will contribute to the understanding of
Gothic architecture in early 13th-century England most
specifically, how forms and spaces were conceived in
relation to the cultural, religious and political life of the
period. The essays make an important contribution to
our understanding of the relation between architecture,
theology, politics and society during the Middle Ages, and
how religious spaces were conceived and experienced.

Iron, Ornament and Architecture

in Victorian Britain

Max Klinger and

Wilhelmine Culture

Myth and Modernity, Excess and


On the Threshold of German Modernism

In the half century after the building of the Crystal Palace

(1851), some architects, engineers, manufacturers and
theorists believed that the fusion of iron and ornament
would reconcile art and technology and create a new,
modern architectural language. This book studies the
development of mechanised architectural ornament in
iron in nineteenth-century architecture, its reception and
theorisation, and the contexts in which it flourished. As
such, it offers new ways of understanding the notion of
modernity in Victorian architecture.

Studies in Art Historiography

During the period in which Expressionist artists were active

in central Europe, art historians were producing texts which
were characterized as expressionist, yet the notion of
an expressionist art history has yet to be fully explored in
historiographic studies. This anthology offers a cross-section
of noteworthy art history texts written 19121933 that have
been described as expressionist, along with commentaries
by an international group of scholars. Together they offer a
productive lens through which to re-examine the practice
and theory of early twentieth-century art history.

(17631826) was highly regarded, both in England and
the United States. Since his death, however, Hadfields
contributions to architecture have slowly faded from view,
and few of his buildings survive. In order to reassess
Hadfields career and work, this book draws upon a wide
selection of written and visual sources to reconstruct his
life and legacy.

Leon Battista Alberti

and Nicholas Cusanus
Towards an Epistemology of Vision for
Italian Renaissance Art and Culture
Charles H. Carman, University of Buffalo, USA

Providing a fresh evaluation of Albertis text On Painting (1435),

along with comparisons to various works of Nicholas Cusanus
this study reveals a hitherto unsuspected shared epistemology
of vision. Analyzing a range of artworks in light of Albertis
and Cusanuss ideals of vision, the author attributes a more
deeply Christian Neoplatonic ideal than is typically accorded
to Alberti, and adds a new dimension to our understanding of
theories of vision in the Italian Renaissance.

Rebuilding Anatolia after

Patricia Blessing, Stanford University, USA
Birmingham Byzantine and Ottoman Studies: CS17

Visual Culture in Early Modernity

Beginning with the Mongol conquest of Anatolia in 1243,

and ending with the demise of the Ilkhanid Empire in the
1330s, this book considers how the integration of Anatolia
into the Mongol world system transformed architecture
and patronage in this frontier region. Blessing considers
the monuments built during this period alongside written
sources in Arabic, Persian and Turkish. In doing so, she
untangles the narratives of architecture, history and religion
and provides a broader understanding of the interaction of
identities in the medieval Middle East.

The Expressionist Turn

in Art History

In this book, the first full-length study of its kind in English,

Marsha Morton argues that no artist represented the shift
from tradition to innovation in the Wilhelmine Empire (1870s
1880s) more compellingly than Max Klinger. Morton makes
an interdisciplinary examination of Klingers early prints and
drawings within the context of Wilhelmine transformations,
coming to the conclusion that the artists work revealed
the psychological and biological underpinnings of modern
rational man whose drives and passions undermined
bourgeois constructions of society.

Rival Sisters, Art and Music

Mariette and the Science

of the Connoisseur in
Eighteenth-Century Europe
Kristel Smentek, Massachusetts Institute of Technology,
Studies in Art Historiography

Celebrated connoisseur, drawings collector, print dealer,

book publisher and authority on the art of antiquity,
Pierre-Jean Mariette (16941774) was a pivotal figure in
the eighteenth-century European art world. Focusing on
the trajectory of Mariettes career, this book examines
the material practices and networks through which
connoisseurs forged the idea of art as an object of empirical
and historical analysis. Drawing on unpublished archival
material as well as on histories of science, publishing and
collecting, this book shows how Mariette and his colleagues
interpretations of graphic arts gave rise to new conceptions
of artistic authorship.

to inspiration to collaboration between the two media in
the age of Romanticism and Modernism. The volume traces
the relationship between art and music, from the opposing
claims for superiority of the early nineteenth century, to the
emergence of the concept of synesthesia around 1900.

Paramount in the shaping of early Byzantine identity

was the construction of the church of Hagia Sophia in
Constantinople (532537 CE). This book examines the edifice
from the perspective of aesthetics to define the concept of
beauty and the meaning of art in early Byzantium. Byzantine
aesthetic thought is re-evaluated against late antique
Neoplatonism and the writings of Pseudo-Dionysius that
offer fundamental paradigms for the late antique attitude

Sculpture and Touch

The Spiritual Rococo

Edited by Peter Dent, University of Bristol, UK

Assaf Pinkus, Tel Aviv University, Israel

Subject/Object: New Studies in Sculpture

Decor and Divinity from the Salons of

Paris to the Missions of Patagonia

This book constitutes the first art-historical attempt to

theorize the idiosyncratic character of German Gothic
sculpture and trace the high and late medieval notions of the
living statue and the simulacrum in religious, lay and travel
literature. In addressing a range of works, from the oeuvre
of the Naumburg Master through Freiburg-im-Breisgau to
the imperial art of Vienna and Prague, Pinkus offers a new
understanding of the function, production, and use of threedimensional images in late-medieval Germany.

This book introduces a new impetus to the discussion of

the relationship between touch and sculpture by setting up
a dialogue between art historians and individuals who are
working in disciplines beyond art history. The collection
brings together a diverse set of approaches, with essays
tackling subjects from prehistoric figurines to the work of
contemporary artists, from pre-modern ideas about the
physiology of touch to tactile interaction in the museum,
and from the phenomenology of touch in philosophy to the
findings of scientific study.

Challenging perceptions of sculpture and the autonomous

artist, this book begins with a critique of the Rodin
scholarship, to establish how the selective study of his oeuvre
in particular, has obscured our understanding of French
nineteenth-century sculpture. Drawing on new archival
sources, sculptors and objects, this is the first sustained
study of how and why French sculptors collaborated with
state and private luxury goods manufacturers between
1848 and 1895. By contesting the false separation of art from
industry, Claire Joness study restores the importance of the
sculptor-manufacturer relationship, and of the decorative, to

A Theory of the Tache in

Nineteenth-Century Painting
ystein Sjstad, University of Oslo, Norway
Studies in Art Historiography

Without question, the tache (blot, patch, stain) is a central

and recurring motif in nineteenth-century modernist
painting. Manets and the Impressionists rejection of
academic finish produced a surface where the strokes of
paint were presented directly, as patches or blots, then
indirectly as legible signs. Czanne, Seurat, and Signac
painted exclusively with patches or dots. Through a series
of close readings, this book looks at the tache as one of the
most important features in nineteenth-century modernism.
The tache is a potential meeting point between text and
image and a pure trace of the artists body. Even though
each manifestation of tacheism generates its own specific
cultural effects, this book represents the first time a scholar
has looked at tacheism as a hidden continuum within
modern art.

Visualizing Haiti in U.S. Culture,


Writing Fashion in
Early Modern Italy

Louisa Iarocci, University of Washington, USA

Lindsay J. Twa, Augustana College, Sioux Falls, USA

From Sprezzatura to Satire

Between the mid nineteenth century and the 1930s, the urban
department store arose as a built artifact and as a social
institution in the United States. While the physical building
type is the foundation of this comprehensive architectural
study, Iarocci reaches beyond the analysis of the brick and
mortar to reconsider how the spaces of selling were culturallyproduced spaces, as well as the product of interrelated
economic, social, technological and aesthetic forces.

From the 1910s until the 1950s the Caribbean nation of

Haiti drew the attention of many U.S. literary and artistic
luminaries, yet while significant studies have been published
on Haitis history, none analyze visual representations with
any depth. This book argues that choosing Haiti as subject
matter was a highly charged decision by American artists
to use their artwork to engage racial, social, and political
issues. Twa scrutinizes photographs, illustrations, paintings,
and theatre as well as textual and archival sources.

University, USA
Focusing on images of or produced by nineteenth-century
European women, this volume explores genteel femininity
as resistant to easy codification vis--vis the public.
Attending to various iterations of the public as space, sphere
and discourse, sixteen essays challenge the false binary
construct that has held the public as the sole preserve of
prosperous men. By considering works in a range of media
by an array of canonical and understudied women artists,
they demonstrate that definitions of both femininity and the
public were mutually defining and constantly shifting.

Gibon (17501837). Aviman elaborates on the nature of this
particular artistic expression and identifies its sources,

Bridging the Business-Project

Techniques for Reconciling Business-asUsual and Project Cultures
John Brinkworth

Every day human organisations fail. Building Anti-Fragile

Organisations explores a powerful alternative framework for
risk in design and management of human systems. AntiFragile organisations, like biological systems, being more
than robust actually improve their resilience through being
stressed. In the book, Bendell explains how its application
in development and management of organisations, services
and products, allows us to identify the characteristics that
will not only mitigate against the realisation of hazards, but
enable growth in protection, strength and anti-fragility over
time. The book identifies characteristics relevant to survival
in a turbulent world, and how our approaches to risk and
governance must change to create and manage anti-fragile
organisations. It gives readers the opportunity to make sense
of applying the concepts within their own worlds.

Complex Adaptive Leadership

Embracing Paradox and Uncertainty
Second Edition

Bridging the Business-Project Divide is a wonderfully

pragmatic book which understands that the one of the most
natural ways to connect projects and business-as-usual
activities is by identifying the needs of both, where these
diverge and, most importantly, how to bring them together.
Unfortunately, the natural side-effect of two so different
perspectives is misunderstanding, mutual incomprehension,
and despite good intentions on both sides, failure to deliver
to mutual benefit. John Brinkworth tackles the subject
by examining the symptoms how do we know there is
a problem? How is it manifested?; the causes a deeper
analysis going behind the symptoms to consider the root
causes; and the solutions addressing the root causes and
how this could lead to more successful projects.

Daphne Halkias and Christian Adendorff

Sven R. Larson

Conservative estimates put the proportion of worldwide

business enterprises owned or managed by families at 65%.
The importance of family businesses to the economies of both
developed and developing countries cannot be ignored.
Governance in Immigrant Family Businesses is an important
book, it explores the relationship between ethnic cultural
influence in family businesses and its impact on corporate
governance, addressing the intertwined influences of
contractual, relational and cultural governance mechanisms
and sets out a comprehensive theoretical model which
clarifies the complexities involved in business planning, family
harmony, and ethnic cultural variables. The authors specifically
identify the implications for research, education, and practice.
Application of their model will be of value to policy makers,
consultants, business researchers and educators.

Conventional wisdom says that Europes crisis is a financial

crisis. But is this really the case? In Industrial Poverty,
economist Sven R. Larson, challenges this view and
suggests instead that Europe is in a state of permanent
economic decline. Using Sweden in the 1990s as an
example, he shows how a welfare-state crisis combined
with the wrong kind of austerity policies replaces prosperity
with industrial poverty. Today, Europe is going through the
same transition into industrial poverty. Tomorrow, it could be
the United States, unless Congress and the President take
decisive action against the runaway budget deficit.

Rica Viljoen
Transformation and Innovation

Globalization, consumerism, legislation and human rights

issues impact on workplace demographics, changing the
very nature thereof. It is of strategic importance to ensure
that the benefits of diverse viewpoints and stakeholders are
leveraged. However, the underlying worldviews of economists,
business leaders and consultants are often informed from a
Western paradigm and solutions proposed and interventions
facilitated are not integrated, integral, systemic or congruent
with the containing environment or ecology.
Rica Viljoena acknowledges that diversity of thought presents
both gifts and challenges to leadership in multi-national
organizations. The existential question with which an
individual is confronted impacts on his or her worldview.
By continuously applying a specific worldview, certain gifts
manifest. These are called Human Niches. Here, Inclusivity
is positioned as a radical transformational methodology
with the purpose of unleashing the benefits of engagement
and diversity of thought. The process of Inclusivity enables
organizations to optimize the gifts of and contributions from a
diverse workforce and unleash tacit knowledge.

Integrated Assurance
Risk Governance Beyond Boundaries
Much has been written about assurance, but mainly by those
who provide it the professionals such as internal auditors,
accountants and information security technologists for the
purpose of advancing their professional practices. Less is
written for or by those in governance who need it for the
effective discharge of their responsibilities. Regulations, as
seen in the recent Walker Review, dont usually go beyond
acknowledging its importance and reliance on those in the
boardroom to get it right.
Reliable assurance, which is an integral part of corporate
governance, cannot be taken for granted; studies have
consistently shown the link between weak corporate
governance and corporate failures. It is time to rethink
assurance beyond its usual functional boundaries, to focus
on what matters to the business and how discussions in
the board room can be better supported by more joined up
assurance. This book will provide practical guidance for those
who need that support and others for providing it.

addressing issues of professional identity, emotion, power
and authority, trust and indoctrination, and management
behaviour. The accounts and studies in this book come
from management, organization studies, sociology, and
anthropology of work perspectives and are fully international
in scope. They highlight the scale of the serious changes in
occupational roles and to the meaning of work that is taking
place in knowledge-intensive environments and give a
pointer to what might constitute good and bad management
practice in knowledge-intensive companies.


Leadership Meta-Competencies
Discovering Hidden Virtues
Dimitris Bourantas and Vasia Agapitou, both at
Athens University of Economics and Business, Greece
The meta-competencies discussed in this refreshing
book are timeless virtues of which effective leaders seem
to possess: Existential intelligence the ability to pose
questions and reflect on fundamental issues in ways that
develop a mature ability to interpret the world and better
understand other people; Phronesis the ability to exercise
sound judgement based on skilful application of moral and
political rationality; Solitude a voluntary state achieved
when an individual has the ability to momentarily withdraw
and be free of external pressures and demands in order
to concentrate on desired mental-cognitive activities;
Trust building the ability to be credible, show trust in
and respect for other people and inspire trust.
For anyone wishing to consider hidden or forgotten aspects
of leadership competence this book introduces the notion of
meta-competences and deals in detail with them.

Diversification in Times of Crisis

A New Era of Leadership and

Nicholas Harkiolakis, Brunel University, UK

Terry A. Sheridan
In Managerial Fraud, Terry Sheridan reports the findings of
her study of fraudulent executives. Her work illuminates
the particular methods fraudsters employ to appear more
authentic than the average person and reveals two types of
executive fraudster with very different behaviours. All this
helps to explain why the current Red Flag approach fails
to identify potential fraudsters and instead tends to focus
on Red Flag executives who are negative characters, but
non-fraudulent. Better understanding of what Sheridan
has uncovered might result in organisations being able to
reduce their exposure to fraud perpetrated by their own
senior management.

In Multipreneurship, Nick Harkiolakis argues against the

more commonly held view that diversification at the level
of the individual entrepreneur, rather than that of the
established corporation, is the wrong business strategy to
pursue in times of economic crisis. The book illuminates the
multipreneurship or parallel diversification perspective
by presenting cases from around the world to highlight
the success factors attending diversification and the
personal and professional entrepreneurial attributes that
lead to successful and sustainable ventures. In so doing,
Harkiolakis provides a framework for diversification as a
means of achieving sustainable development.

inherently a social phenomenon. This allows us to discuss the

management that is entirely complementary to the existing
methodologies; one that recognises that at its heart, the
management of a project relies on the perceived choices
and methods, behaviours and decision-making of its players
and the freedom of action that is permitted to the project
regime. It fills in the gaps where the methodology doesnt
provide any kind of response to questions such as how fast

is appropriate in our decision-making. It recognises that
performance ultimately rests on human knowledge, resolve,

Safety performance is a complicated issue, particularly

in high-hazard environments, where time and other
constraints, as well as impacts can be exaggerated. From
an organizational and business perspective, safety and
production/performance are often seen as competing goals.
When production is increased, safety defenses and barriers
frequently decrease, and when programs are developed in
an effort to improve safety, employees may not be able to
meet production goals within the safety constraints.
Team Leadership in High Hazard Environments recognises
these difficulties and proposes an approach to safety
leadership in which safety and organizational performance
are inextricably linked one that addresses safety from both
the systems and human factors perspectives. To that end,
Randy Cadieux introduces the nine essential components
to team leadership. By studying these areas and using
the information in each chapter, organizational leaders,
managers, and supervisors will gain an understanding
of key factors that will help them design, develop, and
implement team training programs that improve the way
employees work together and the way they mitigate hazards.
Additionally, the book describes how work systems and work
environments may be designed or shaped so that teams are
placed in a position to do their optimal work, maximizing the
potential for human and team performance.

In Time Series Analysis and Adjustment the authors explain
how the last four decades have brought dramatic changes
in the way researchers analyze economic and financial
data on behalf of economic and financial institutions and to
provide statistics. An understanding of time series and the
application and knowledge of related time series adjustment
procedures is essential in areas such as risk management,
business cycle analysis, and forecasting. The case studies in
this book demonstrate that time series adjustment methods
can be efficaciously applied and utilized, for both analysis and
forecasting, but they must be used in the context of reasoned
statistical and economic judgment this is the first known

Towards Organizational Fitness is about the people who

work in organizations and addresses two main issues:
firstly, how to investigate and manage problems involving
people at work; secondly, how to assess and develop the
capability and fitness of an organization. The message
is clear; organizations should not proceed to change
any of their policies, procedures, processes or practices
until a systematic thorough diagnosis of the root cause
underpinning the need to change has taken place. The book
provides managers with a conceptual and practical guide for
achieving this.



The Project Sponsors Perspective

Any project which involves an EPC contract is also likely

to involve a number of other complicated contracts. The
challenge of the parties to an EPC contract is not to try to
eliminate risk but rather put into place a narrative structure
that enables the parties to predict the contractual result
that would obtain if a risk materializes. If the EPC contract
does not allow the parties to determine the consequences
of an unanticipated situation, they will have to look to an
expert, mediator, tribunal, or court to impart guidance or
pass judgment.

Heterodox Religious Identities in Britain,

In the seventeenth and eighteenth century the terms
atheism and deism involved fine distinctions that have
not always been preserved by later scholars. The original
deployment and usage of these terms were often more
complicated than much of the historical scholarship

Essays on William of Tyre, Cyprus and the

Edited by Susan B. Edgington, University of London, UK
and Helen J. Nicholson, Cardiff University, UK

Crusades Subsidia

The antiquary Cosmo Innes (17981874) was a prolific

editor of medieval and early modern documents relating to
Scotlands parliament, legal system, burghs, universities,
aristocratic families and pre-Reformation church. This book,
which analyses Inness work and provides sources, opens a
window onto the ways in which Scottish identity and ideas
about the national past were perceived in Scotland during
the nineteenth century, a period when union with England
was all but unquestioned.

This volume celebrates Peter Edburys career by bringing

together essays focusing on his major research interests;
the great historian of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, William
of Tyre, and his chronicle; medieval Cyprus; and the
Military Orders in the Middle Ages. All based on original
research, contributions include new work on manuscripts
from the twelfth to the seventeenth centuries; studies of
language in William of Tyre; thematic surveys; legal and
commercial investigations pertaining to Cyprus; aspects of
memorialisation, and biographical studies.

Crusades Subsidia

All pre-industrial societies had to face certain challenges:

earthquakes, plague, warfare, soil erosion and subsistence
crises. However, while some settlements were stable over
the long term, other settlements proved more vulnerable
to crisis. This book has been stimulated by the hypotheses
put forward by a recent disaster studies literature, which
suggests that vulnerability of habitation is less to do with the
crises themselves, but on endogenous societal responses.
By testing the explanatory framework on several societies
between the Middle Ages and nineteenth-century Europe, it
is argued that the most resilient habitations were those that
displayed an equitable distribution of property and power.

This collection, which brings together a selection of

Alexandra Walshams essays written over the last fifteen
years, examines key aspects of the evolution and experience
of the Catholic communities of post-Reformation Britain.
Rejecting an earlier preoccupation with recusants and

Denmark and Europe in the

Early Medieval Monetary History

Contributions to the Theory of the Emblem

Studies in Early Medieval Britain and Ireland

The emblem was big business in early-modern Europe,

used extensively not only in printed books and broadsheets,
but also to decorate pottery, metalware, furniture, glass
and windows and numerous other domestic, devotional
and political objects. At its most basic level simply a
combination of symbolic visual image and texts, an emblem
is a hybrid composed of words and picture. However, as this
book demonstrates, understanding the precise and often
multiple meaning, intention and message that emblems
conveyed can prove a remarkably slippery process.

Studies in Memory of Mark Blackburn

Edited by Kerstin Hundahl, Lund University, Sweden,

Lars Kjr, New College of the Humanities, UK and
Niels Lund, Copenhagen University, Denmark
Medieval Denmark and Scandinavia have often been seen
as cultural backwaters that passively and belatedly received
cultural and political impulses from Western Europe.
However, Michael H. Gelting and scholars inspired by him
have shown that the intellectual, religious and political elite
of Denmark actively participated in the renaissance and
reformation of the medieval period. This anthology brings
the latest research in Danish medieval history to a wider
audience and integrates it with contemporary international
discussions of the making of the European Middle Ages.

Dreaming in Byzantium
and Beyond
Edited by Christine Angelidi and George T. Calofonos,
both at Institute of Historical Research / NHRF, Greece
This book the first collection of studies on Byzantine
dreams to be published aims to demonstrate the
importance of closely examining dreams in Byzantium
in their wider historical and cultural, as well as narrative,
context. The remarkable number of dream narratives
in Byzantine hagiography, historiography, rhetoric,
epistolography, and romance attests to the cardinal function
of dreams as vehicles of meaning in politics, religion and
literature. The essays provide a broad variety of perspectives,
exploring gender, eroticism, Greco-Roman and Islamic
influences, psychoanalysis and anthropology.

Dressing Judeans and

Christians in Antiquity
Edited by Kristi Upson-Saia, Occidental College, USA,
Carly Daniel-Hughes, Concordia University, Canada
and Alicia J. Batten, Conrad Grebel University College,
This volume aims to understand religious aspects of
dress in the ancient world by examining a diverse range of
religious sources, including literature, art, performance,
coinage, economic markets, and memories. Contributors
demonstrate how dress developed as a topos within Judean
and Christian rhetoric, symbolism, and performance, and
show how religious meanings were entangled with other
social logics, revealing the many layers of meaning attached
to ancient dress, as well as the extent to which dress was
implicated in numerous domains of religious life.

The Society of Jesus was founded on a principal of strict
obedience to papal authority, yet the turbulent political
circumstances in which they operated inevitably brought
them into conflict with the Catholic hierarchy. In order
to better understand and contextualise the concept of
obedience from a theological and practical perspective, this
book examines the Jesuits of south-western Europe during
the thirty-year generalate of Claudio Acquaviva (15811615),
a challenging time for the Jesuits, during which their very
system of government was called into doubt.

This book focuses on the impact of political relations with

against the caliphate in the Byzantine army, the continuous
warfare with the Arabs and the cultural exchange with
Baghdad, the Khazar problem, and the attitude of the
Christian Melkites towards the iconoclast emperor. The final

Overshadowed in the popular imagination by the figure

on this significant figure through a selection of essays
addressing a wide range of topics, from Fairfaxs role as

Translation and Commentary

Working from original documents consulted for the first

eighteenth-century mathematical and optical instrument
maker, Francis Watkins, who played an important role in one
of the most significant legal cases to touch this profession,
the patenting of the achromatic lens in telescopes. The
book explains Watkins origins and his partnership with the

ruthless, before accounting for Watkins successors and

The translation of the four texts in this volume, which

Anti-Communism and Political Repression in

the United States, 19211946
Edited by Robert Justin Goldstein, University of
Michigan, USA
Anti-communism has long been a potent force in American
politics, capable of gripping both government and popular
attention. Nowhere is this more evident that the two great
red scares of 191920 and 194654; the latter generally
if somewhat inaccurately termed McCarthyism. By
focusing on the interim period between the two major red
scares, this volume makes clear that the lingering effects
of 191920 and the gathering storm-clouds of McCarthyism
were clearly visible throughout the 20s and 30s. In so
doing the rationale and motivations for the red scares
are contexualised as part of an evolving political narrative,
rather than as isolated bouts of hysteria exploding onto
and then vanishing from the political landscape.

political representation work in countries that have a lot in

and what, if any, relationships between the respective styles
of democracy can be identified? Using a variety of theories,

Money Pits: British Mining

Companies in the Californian

the 1850s
John Woodland
Modern Economic and Social History

Between 1849 and 1853, shares in nearly 120 public

companies to exploit the booming goldfields of California
and Australia were offered to the British public. The
companies were collectively capitalised at over 15 million,
but in the end only some 1.75 million was raised between
42 of them, with only one company surviving what the
newspapers of the day described as a gold bubble.
This is the first detailed investigation of the British gold
bubble companies and their involvement in the almost
simultaneous gold rushes on both sides of the Pacific.

Since the mid-1970s, the term zone has often been
associated with the post-war housing estates on the
outskirts of large French cities. However, it once referred
to a more circumscribed space: the zone non aedificandi
(non-building zone) which encircled Paris (1840-1940). This
unusual territory came to occupy a central place in Parisian
culture. By analysing a wider range of sources from the
duration of the zones existence, this study offers a nuanced
account of how the area was perceived by successive
generations of Parisian novelists, poets, songwriters, artists,
photographers, film-makers, politicians and town-planners.

Religious Conversion

Caucasia and the Iranian Commonwealth

in Late Antique Georgian Literature

This collection ranges far and wide from early Christian

pilgrims to fifteenth-century Ethiopia; from the Islamisation
of the eastern Mediterranean to Reformation Germany
to investigate the multiple causes and characteristics
of religious conversion. By probing continuities and
fissures, particularly in the Jewish, Muslim and Christian
experiences, the volume extends the range of conversion
to focus on matters less commonly examined, such as the
meaning of sacred space, bodies, gender, and the ways
conversion has been understood and narrated.

Georgian literary sources for Late Antiquity are commonly

held to be later productions devoid of historical value. As
a result, scholarship outside the Republic of Georgia has
privileged Graeco-Roman and even Armenian narratives.
However, when investigated within the dual contexts of
a regional literary canon and the active participation of
Caucasias diverse peoples in the Iranian Commonwealth,
early Georgian texts emerge as rich repositories of late
antique attitudes and outlooks.

academic religious disputation between opposing Catholic,
Protestant and nonconformist puritan divines. Introducing
a form of discourse hitherto neglected, the volume works
to rehabilitate a body of material only previously examined
as part of the mass of polemic produced in the wake of the
Reformation. In so doing, it argues that public religious
disputation can offer insights into contemporary beliefs and

century is incontrovertible. The power, government, and
influence of kings, queens and lords dominated society and
was frequently challenged and resisted. But while biographies

and works on political struggles abound, many aspects of
rulership and rebellion remain to be explored. This volume,

genres in the period: late antique authors were not slavish
followers of their classical predecessors, but were capable

interaction of politics, culture and society of the Elizabethan
court through the eyes of a popular and long-serving courtier.

The History of Medicine in Context

In 17051706, an epidemic of mysterious deaths terrorized

Rome. Pope Clement XIs physician, Giovanni Maria Lancisi,
was ordered to perform a series of dissections to discover
the cause of the epidemic, which hindered confession,
thus threatening the victims salvation. The book that
Lancisi subsequently published, De subitaneis mortibus
(On Sudden Deaths, 1707), is one of the earliest modern
scientific investigations of death. Sudden Death explores
how a new scientific interpretation of death first came into
being, and led the way to a belief in the conquest of death
by medicine which remains to this day.

principles, but by placing Nol in the context of turn-of-thecentury French culture, this book is able to demonstrate
how these two worldviews were reconciled. This book sheds
much valuable light on advances in aesthetic surgery,
twentieth-century beauty culture, women and the public
sphere, and the new woman.

History shows how relatively small naval forces can have

a disproportionately large impact on global events. This
collection, which adopts an interdisciplinary approach
drawing on the best new research from the fields of
international relations, security studies, strategic studies
and maritime history, addresses the roles and activities of
small navies in the past and the present, and investigates
the relationship of such navies with non-governmental
institutions in pursuit of broader maritime goals, be they
political, financial or environmental.

The Anglo-German rivalry in battleship building at the

beginning of the twentieth century has been blamed by
many as a major cause of the First World War, yet the Great
Naval Race has not received the attention that its notoriety
would merit. This volume facilitates an understanding of
how the two parties interacted by providing a comprehensive
survey of existing scholarship, as well as important primary
sources from a range of archives. By offering German
documents in their original text and in English translation,
this book makes the German role in this conflict accessible
to English speakers for the first time.

Gathering together a group of internationally renowned
scholars this volume presents cutting-edge research on the
complex processes of identity formation in the transatlantic
world of the Hispanic Baroque. Identities in the Hispanic
world are deeply intertwined with sociological concepts
such as class and estate, with geographical-religious
elements, and with issues related to the ethnic diversity
of the worlds first transatlantic empire and its various
miscegenations. Contributors offer the reader diverse
vantage points on the challenging problem of how identities
in the Hispanic world may be analyzed and interpreted.

The Use of Hereford

The Sources of a Medieval English Diocesan
William Smith
The Use of Hereford, a local variation of the Roman rite, was
one of the diocesan liturgies of medieval England before
their abolition and replacement by the Book of Common
Prayer in 1549. Unlike the widespread Use of Sarum, the Use
of Hereford was confined principally to its diocese, which
helped to maintain its individuality until the Reformation. This
study seeks to catalogue and evaluate all the known surviving
sources of the Use of Hereford, with particular reference to
the missals and gradual, which so far have received little
attention. In addition to these a variety of other material
has been examined, including a number of little-known or
unknown important fragments of early Hereford service-books
dismembered at the Reformation and now hidden away as
binding or other scrap in libraries and record offices.

Exploring the relationship between gender and law in
Europe from the nineteenth century to present, this
collection examines the feminisation of justice, its historical
beginnings, and the impact of gendered constructions on
jurisprudence. Every chapter addresses these issues from
the point of view of womens legal history or gendered legal
cultures. With contributions from scholars with expertise
in the major regions of Europe, this book is sensitive to the
intersection of gender theory, legal studies and public policy,
and is based on historical methodologies.

Edited by Carine Berbri and Monia OBrien Castro,
both at the University of Tours, France
Thirty years after the Argentinian invasion of the Falkland
Islands, the war remains a source of continued debate and
analysis for politicians, historians and military strategists.
Not only did the conflict provide a fascinating example of
modern expeditionary warfare, but it also brought to the fore
numerous questions regarding international law, sovereignty,
the inheritance of colonialism, the influence of history on
national policy and the use of military force for domestic
political uses. As the essays in this collection show, the
numerous facets of the Falklands War remain current today
and have ramifications far beyond the South Atlantic.

The early-sixteenth century was a turbulent time for the

Italian peninsula as competing centres of power struggled
for political control. Nowhere was this more true than the
area contested by Milan and Venice, an area constantly
crossed and occupied by rival armies. Investigating the
impact of successive crises upon the inhabitants of the Po
Valley, this book challenges many fundamental assumptions
about the relationship between war and economic
development and draws conclusion that have implications
for early-modern Europe as a whole.

For many in the Middle Ages, pilgrimages were seen to

represent a risk of moral and religious perdition for women,
who were generally discouraged from making them. Women
and Pilgrimage in Medieval Galicia represents an analysis
of the social history of women based on documentary
sources and physical evidence, breaking away from literary
and historiographical stereotypes, while at the same time
contributing to a critical assessment of the myth that
medieval women were kept hidden away from the world.

The Worlds of Eastern Christianity, 3001500: CS14

Most of these essays touch upon, and some of them are

exclusively concerned with, small scale social processes:
e.g. the routines of the all-female early-modern childbirth
ritual, the different ways that male practitioners were
summoned to such occasions, the functioning of voluntary
hospitals, the protocols underlying patient records.
Whenever there comes into being something new whether
an institution, a social practice or a concept the question
arises as to its relationship with what went before. This
concept resonates throughout these essays, but is most to
the fore in the chapters on early Hanoverian London and on
Porter versus Foucault.

The Christian communities of the Middle East distinguish

themselves through their unique languages, their ethnic
identities and their doctrinal stances. Whereas the history
of doctrinal disputes has been a topic of old in Western
scholarship, it is only in more recent times that scholars
have begun to investigate how the Christian communities of
the Nile-to-Oxus region perceived themselves and how they
asserted their distinct identities vis--vis their neighbours
and maintained a sense of communal integrity in response
to cultural change and foreign domination. This volume
brings together a number of key studies, many specially
translated into English for this volume, which deal with this
question of Eastern Christian self-definition. Included in the
volume is an extensive bibliography on the topic of Eastern
Christian self-understanding.

the activities of the Portuguese, Dutch and English East India
companies. It also contains essays on textile manufacturing,

What was once a region in the shadow of larger and more

prosperous continents such as North America and Europe is
now at the forefront of expansion in commercial air-service
networks, frequency and capacity, and the overall growth in
the contribution of air transport to economies on regional
and, in many cases, individual country levels. Despite this,
it represents an area that is generally under-represented
in the commercial air-transport academic literature. Air
Transport in the Asia Pacific seeks to fill this gap. While one
volume cannot realistically address the complete range
of identifiable issues, this book offers a contemporary
snapshot of current academic research into commercial air
transport in the Asia Pacific.

of disciplines, Emergent Urbanism identifies the specific
issues dominating todays urban planning and urban design
discourse, arguing that urban planning and design not only
results from deliberate planning and design measures, but
how these combine with infrastructure planning, and derive
from economic, social and spatial processes of structural
change. Combining explorations from urban planning,
urban theory, human geography, sociology, urban design
and architecture, the volume provides a comprehensive and
state-of-the-art overview, highlighting the complexities of
these interactions in space and place, process and design.

Encountering Affect

Heritage, Culture and Identity

Ben Anderson, Durham University, UK

Bringing together cultural anthropologists, archaeologists,

historians and other scholars of food and heritage, this
volume closely examines the ways in which the cultivation,
preparation, and consumption of food is used to create
identity claims of cultural heritage on local, regional,
national and international scales. Featuring case studies
from Europe, Asia and the Americas, this timely volume
also addresses the complex processes of classifying,
designating, and valorizing food as terroir, slow food, or as
intangible cultural heritage through UNESCO. By effectively
analyzing food and foodways through the perspectives
of critical heritage studies, this collection productively
brings two overlapping but frequently separate theoretical
frameworks into conversation.

Capacities, Apparatuses, Conditions

In Encountering Affect, Ben Anderson explores why
understanding affect matters and offers one account of
affective life that hones in on the different ways in which
affects are ordered. Intervening in debates around nonrepresentational theories, he argues that affective life is
always-already mediated the never finished product of
apparatuses, encounters and conditions. Through a wide
range of examples including dread-debility-dependency
in torture, ordinary hopes, and precariousness, Anderson
shows the significance of affect for understanding life today.

The Ethnopoetics of
Space and Transformation
Young Peoples Engagement,
Activism and Aesthetics
Stuart C. Aitken, San Diego State University, USA
Aitken examines key life-changing events to look at the
interconnections between space, politics, change and
emotions. Analysing the intricate spatial complexities of
these events, he explores the emotions that undergird
the ways change takes place, and the perplexing spatial
politics that almost always accompany transformations.
Aitken positions young people as effective agents of change
without romanticizing their political involvement as fantasy
and unrealistic dreaming. Going further, he suggests that
it is the emotional palpability of youth engagement and
activism that makes it so potent and productive.

Perspectives on Rural Policy and Planning

By examining the Community Initiative LEADER+ and

setting this within a discussion of the state and structure of
rural development policy, this book looks at the challenges,
opportunities and policy options which are available and
have been implemented in rural development. It shows
that these are often context dependent and that the future
of rural development policies, their shape and institutional
configuration depend on reforms put in place at all levels
of governance. Finally, it argues that the MLG of rural
development policy must be built with people who have
the know-how and the (local) knowledge to implement
development projects and who have made LEADER a
success in the past.

The Geographies of Air Transport

How Outer Space Made America

Edited by Andrew R. Goetz, University of Denver, USA

and Lucy Budd, Loughborough University, UK

Geography, Organization and

the Cosmic Sublime

Transport and Mobility

Daniel Sage, Loughborough University, UK

Making a detailed contribution to geographies of air

transport and aeromobility, this book examines the practices
and processes that produce particular patterns of air
transport provision both regionally and globally. In so doing,
it updates the seminal contributions of Eva Taylor (1945),
Kenneth Sealy (1957), Brian Graham (1995) to the study of
air transport geography. Leading scholars in the field offer a
unique insight into the key developments that have occurred
in the field and the implications that these developments
have had for geography, geographers, and global patterns of
past, present and future air transport.

In this innovatory book Daniel Sage analyses how and why

American space exploration reproduced and transformed
American cultural and political imaginations by appealing
to, and to an extent organising, the transcendence of spatial
and temporal frontiers. While largely engaging with the
historical development of space exploration, it shows how
contemporary cultural and social, and indeed geographical,
research themes, including national identity, critical
geopolitics, gender, technocracy, trauma and memory,
can be informed by the study of space exploration.

The Collaborative Moment

Edited by Paul Sillitoe, Durham University, UK
Advancing the rising field of engaged or participatory
anthropology that is emerging at the same time as increased
opposition from Indigenous peoples to research, this book
offers critical reflections on research approaches to-date.
The engaged approach seeks to change the researcherresearched relationship fundamentally, to make methods
more appropriate and beneficial to communities by involving
them as participants in the entire process from choice of
research topic onwards. The aim is not only to change power
relationships, but also engage with non-academic audiences.

The Housing Question

Gentrification: A Working-Class
Kirsteen Paton, University of Leeds, UK
This book reconnects class and the urban through an
ethnographically detailed analysis of a neighbourhood
undergoing gentrification which historicises class formation,
critiques policy processes and offers a new sociological
insight into gentrification from the perspective of workingclass residents This ethnography of everyday working-class
neighbourhood life in the UK serves to challenge denigrated
depictions which are used to justify the use of gentrificationbased restructuring. By exploring the relationship between
urban processes and working-class communities via
gentrification, it reveals the hidden rewards as well as the
hidden injuries of class in post-industrial neighbourhoods.

This book focuses on the material city and its institutions and
shows that, without recourse to a big new theory, urban leaders
have devised mechanisms of ordinary government. They
have done so through the resolution of practical and essential
problems: providing electricity, drinking water, sanitation,
transportation. In the originality of its hypotheses and the
precision of the analyses carried out in the four case study
cities of Shanghai, Mumbai, Cape Town and Santiago de Chile,
this work is addressed to all those interested in the life of cities:
politicians, local and central government officials, executives in
urban companies, researchers and students.

it evaluates each mechanisms performance focusing on
aspects such as equity, revenue-generating potential, the

chapter of this book is devoted exclusively to an overview of
the VC mechanisms in use internationally.

The Life of the City is a bold and innovative reassessment

of the early urban avant-garde movements that sought
to re-imagine and reinvent the experiential life of the city.
Constructing a ground-breaking theoretical analysis of the
relationships between biological life, urban culture, and
modern forms of biopolitical experiential authority, Julian
Brigstocke traces the failed attempts of Parisian radicals to
turn the crisis of authority in late nineteenth century Paris
into an opportunity to invent new forms of urban commons.

This book shows how urban design can complement other

disciplines when tackling the complex task of understanding
and improving the built environments public realm. It also
bridges the gap between theory and practice as it draws
from empirical research to suggest more quantitative
approaches towards auditing and improving public places.
By seeing where and why certain public places fail, direct
and informed interventions can be made to improve them
and through this contribute to the building of more attractive
and sustainable cities.

Transport and Mobility

Walking a Fine Line

Based on the authors own research and investigations into

more than 25 port cities in China over the past 18 years,
this book provides vivid stories about China and challenges
existing theories on port development. This book answers
the following questions from a geographical perspective:
how has port growth been speeded up and realized under
strong state control and intervention? How have ports and
their cities affected each other? What lessons can Chinas
port-cities learn from other countries, regions and cities?
and what will be the next stage of port-city interplays in
China in this globalizing era?

Edited by Amy E. Lesen, Dillard University, USA

Ashgate Studies in Environmental Policy and Practice

Those who control water, hold power. Complicating matters,

water is a flow resource; constantly changing states between
liquid, solid, and gas, being incorporated into living and
non-living things and crossing boundaries of all kinds. As a
result, water governance has much to do with the question of
boundaries and scale: who is in and who is out of decisionmaking structures? Which of the many boundaries that water
crosses should be used for decision-making related to its
governance? Recently, efforts to understand the relationship
between water and political boundaries have come to the
fore of water governance debates: how and why does water
governance fragment across sectors and governmental
departments? How can we govern shared waters more
effectively? How do politics and power play out in water
governance? This book brings together and connects the
work of scholars to engage with such questions.

On South Bank: The Production

of Public Space
Alasdair J.H. Jones, London School of Economics, UK
Re-materialising Cultural Geography

Through an in-depth ethnographic examination of

Londons South Bank, this book explores the value widely
presupposed on urban public space. Based on subjective
accounts of the value of public space, as well as observations
of how the South Bank is used and practised on a daily
basis, it argues that this value is not so much inherent to
physical public space itself as it is derived through the
everyday use and production of that space. Public space is
valued not only for its essential material characteristics but
also for the productive potential that these characteristics, if
properly managed, afford on a daily basis.

The Paradoxes of Planning

A Psycho-Analytical Perspective
Sara Westin, Uppsala University, Sweden

Using a philosophical and psychoanalytical approach,

this book critically examines expert knowledge within
architecture and urban planning. Its point of departure is
the the gap between visions and realities, intentions and
outcomes in planning, with particular focus on projects in
Sweden that try to create an urban atmosphere. Finding
insights from the work of Sigmund Freud and his followers,
the book argues that urban planning during the 20th century
is a neurotic activity prone to produce a type of alienation.

Bringing together geographers, sociologists, cultural

this volume explores what it means to transform through
travel in a modern, mobile world. In doing so, it draws
upon a wide variety of traveller perspectives including
tourists, backpackers, lifestyle travellers, migrants,
refugees, nomads, walkers, writers, poets, virtual travellers
and cosmetic surgery patients to unpack a cultural
phenomenon that has captured the imagination since
the very first works of Western literature.

This book explores the role of cities, their influence and the
transformations they have undertaken in the recent past, the
ways in which cities regenerate, how plans change, how they
are governed and how they react to the economic realities
of the day. Bringing together studies from around the world
at different scales, from small town to megacity, this volume
captures a snapshot of some of the changes in city centres,
suburbs, and the wider urban region. In doing so, it provides
a deeper understanding of the evolving form and function of
cities and their associated peripheral regions as well as their
impact on modern twenty-first century landscapes.

which considers the manifold of perspectives and issues and
it puts forward a novel approach to the question of heritage,

Interdisciplinary in approach, this volume explores and

deciphers the symbolic value and iconicity of the built
environment in the Arab Gulf Region, its aesthetics, language
and performative characteristics. It suggests that recent
developments in this region of the world not only represent a
showcase of extraordinary initiatives by which these desert
states have transformed, but also that the commodification of
local traditions acts as an essential element in the countries
effort to design an Arab version of (hyper-)modernity and to

Information and Cultural Management

Australian Artists in the
Contemporary Museum

Crowdsourcing our
Cultural Heritage

Integrity in Government
through Records Management

Jennifer Barrett and Jacqueline Millner, University of

Sydney, Australia

Edited by Mia Ridge, Open University, UK

Essays in Honour of Anne Thurston

Digital Research in the Arts and Humanities

In Australia, the artists engagement with the museum

is traditionally regarded as having an important role in
the colonial project but, as times have changed, the postcolonial viewpoint has come to the fore. The authors of
Australian Artists and the Museum propose that the artists
engagement has moved from politically informed critique
taking place in museums of fine art, towards a critique of
the creation of knowledge taking place in non-art museums,
assuming new forms, including the artist acting as curator,
art interventions that highlight the use of taxonomic modes
of display and categorization, and the engagement with the
aesthetics of collections to suggest different readings of
objects and artefacts.

Crowdsourcing, or asking the general public to help

contribute to shared goals, is increasingly popular in
memory institutions as a tool for digitising or computing
vast amounts of data. This book brings together for the first
time the collected wisdom of international leaders in the
theory and practice of crowdsourcing in cultural heritage.
It features eight accessible case studies of groundbreaking
projects from leading cultural heritage and academic
institutions, and four thought-provoking essays that
reflect on the wider implications of this engagement for
participants and on the institutions themselves.
This book will be essential reading for information
and cultural management professionals, students and
researchers in universities, corporate, public or academic
libraries, museums and archives.

Adaptations of Early Temple Architecture

in South and Southeast Asia
Sambit Datta, Curtin University, Australia and
David Beynon, Deakin University, Australia

Museum Representations
of Maoist China

Digital Research in the Arts and Humanities

From Cultural Revolution to Commie Kitsch

This multi-disciplinary study of early archetypal Brahmanic,

Hindu and Buddhist temple architectures examines how
the styles from northwest India were adapted as they
spread into Southeast Asia. It unravels the specifically
compositional and architectural linkages along the trading
routes of South and Southeast Asia, and the common
themes and influences to be seen in the early temples of
Java, Cambodia and Champa. Using digital reconstruction
and recovery of three-dimensional temple forms, the authors
have developed a digital dataset of early Indian antecedents,
tested new technologies for the acquisition of built heritage
and developed new methods for comparative analysis of
built form geometry.

Amy Jane Barnes, University of Leicester, UK

The collection, interpretation and display of art from the
Peoples Republic of China, and particularly the art of the
Cultural Revolution, have been problematic for museums.
These objects challenge our perception of Chineseness
and their style, content and the means of their production
question accepted notions of how we perceive art. This book
links art history, museology and visual culture studies to
examine how museums have attempted to reveal, discuss
and resolve some of these issues. This book will be of
interest to scholars and students in museology, visual
and cultural studies as well as scholars of Chinese and
revolutionary art.

Museums and Restitution

Redisplaying Museum

World Heritage, Urban Design

and Tourism

Edited by Louise Tythacott, University of London, UK

and Kostas Arvanitis, University of Manchester, UK

Contemporary Display and Interpretation

in British Museums

Three Cities in the Middle East

This book examines contemporary approaches to restitution

from the perspective of museums. It focuses on the ways in
which these institutions have been addressing the subject
at a regional, national and international level. In particular,
it explores contemporary practices and recent claims, and
investigates to what extent the question of restitution as
an issue of ownership is still at large, or whether museums
have found additional ways to conceptualise and practice
restitution, by thinking beyond the issue of ownership. The
challenges, benefits and drawbacks of recent and current
museum practice are explored.

Museums in the
New Mediascape

Luna Khirfan, University of Waterloo, Canada

This is the first book to examine, in depth, the multi-million

pound redisplay and reinterpretation process in British
museums in the early twenty-first century. Acknowledging
the importance of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) as project
catalyst, Hannah Paddon explains and explores the complex
process, from the initial stages of project conceptualisation
to the final stages of museum re-opening and exhibition
evaluation. She also provides an in-depth look, using three
case study museums, at the factors which shape each
museum redisplay project including topics such as museum
architecture, government agendas and the exhibition team.
Finally, the book offers discussions and conclusions around
pitfalls and successes and thoughts about the future of
collection redisplay.

This book offers an interdisciplinary approach to the key

relationships between heritage conservation, city space
design, and tourism development in historic cities, linking
theory and practice in a unique way. The book offers an
investigation of three Middle Eastern historic cities, Aleppo,
Acre and Salt, all of which face significant challenges of
heritage conservation, adaptation to contemporary needs,
and tourism development. It presents practical scenarios
for the conservation and design of historic urban spaces
and the development of sustainable tourism, from the
perspective of planners, local communities and international
tourists. The author offers a comparative approach which
transcends political strife and provides valuable lessons for
the other cities inscribed on UNESCOs World Heritage List,
especially those in developing countries.

Transmedia, Participation, Ethics

Jenny Kidd, Cardiff University, UK
The museum today faces complex questions of definition,
representation, ethics, aspiration and economic survival.
Alongside this we see burgeoning use of an array of new media
including increasingly dynamic web portals and content,
digital archives, social networks, blogs and online games.
At the heart of this are changes to the idea of visitor and
audience and their participation and representation in the
new cultural sphere. This insightful book unpacks a number of
contradictions that help to frame and articulate digital media
work in the museum and questions what constitutes authentic
participation. Based on original empirical research and a
range of case studies the author explores questions about the
museum as media from a number of different disciplines and
shows that across museums and the study of them, the cultural
logic is changing.

Uncertain Images: Museums

and the Work of Photographs
Edited by Elizabeth Edwards, De Montfort University, UK
and Sigrid Lien, University of Bergen, Norway
This book brings into focus the ubiquitous yet entirely
unconsidered work that photographs are put to in museums.
The authors argument is that there is an economy of
photographs in museums which is integral to the processes
of the museum, and integral to the understanding of
museums. The international contributors, drawn from
curators and academics, reflect a range of visual and
museological expertise. The volume emerges from
PhotoCLEC, a HERA funded project on museums and the
photographic legacy of the colonial past in a postcolonial
and multicultural Europe.

Cultural Diversity and Law

Juris Diversitas

This collection investigates the latest advances in the field

of legal translation and provides an invaluable reference
volume for all academics and practitioners in the field. The
authors offer philosophical, rhetorical, terminological and
lexicographical perspectives and explore a range of topics
from both theoretical and practical positions. Multiple and
pluralistic viewpoints are also offered in the analysis of legal
translation among different jurisdictions such as China, the
EU and Japan.

This book presents legal perspectives on the most important

sacred places of the Mediterranean. The authors discuss
the notion of sacred places in anthropological, sociological
and legal studies, provide an overview of existing legal
approaches to their protection and consider the meaning of
sacred places in Jewish, Christian and Islamic thought. The
book concludes with detailed analysis of the legal status of
key sacred places and a set of legal principles to support a
general framework within which specific legal measures can
be implemented.

In this study international legal experts explore legal

concepts and contexts from diverse national and disciplinary
perspectives. Themes range from legal and normative
pluralism to the development of state law and legal systems,
and from laws rhetoric and the potential utility of alternative
vocabularies to the polyjurality of the present. The study
combines theoretical analyses and case studies to create a
rich picture of present scholarship on laws and norms and
the state of contemporary legal complexity, each crossing
traditional boundaries.

In the world of law enforcement art and antiquity crime has in
the past usually assumed a place of low interest and priority.
That situation has now slowly begun to change on both the
local and international level as criminals, encouraged in
part by the record sums now being paid for art treasures, are
now seeking to exploit the art market more systematically by
means of theft, fraud and looting. In this collection academics
and practitioners from Australasia, Europe and North America

This volume presents the viewpoints of academics, food

those of EU policymakers on the first ten years of activity of
one of the most prominent European agencies. Its broader
purpose, however, is to discuss the future role played by EFSA
within the rapidly-evolving area of EU food law and policy.
By revisiting and discussing the milestones in the history
of EFSA, the collection provides forward-looking views of
food leaders and practitioners on the future scientific and
regulatory challenges facing the European Union.

In recent years, a conservative majority of the U.S. Supreme

Court, over vigorous dissent, has developed circumventions
to the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment that
allow state legislatures to use public tax dollars to aid
private elementary and secondary education, with the
vast majority of that funding reaching parochial schools
and other religiously-affiliated education providers. In
this book Winer and Crimm clearly elucidate for readers
greater understanding and appreciation the complex and
controversial policy, legal, and constitutional issues involved
in using tax expenditures mechanisms such as exclusions,
deductions, and credits that economically function
essentially as government subsidies - to finance private,
religious schooling.

This study brings research in linguistics and the way in

which the body is written upon to bear on discourse on
human rights and the body. Drawing on legal concepts and
aspects of the law of human rights, the study argues that the
proper frames for human rights are firstly the human body,
seen as an index reliant on the natural world, secondly the
globe and finally, language. These three frames generate
rights to food, water, sleep and shelter, environmental
protection and a right against dehumanization.

Simulation in Theory and Practice

Mixed Legal Systems,

Edited by Caroline Strevens, University of Portsmouth,

Edited by Vernon Valentine Palmer, Tulane University,

USA, Mohamed Y. Mattar and Anna Koppel, both at
Johns Hopkins University, USA

Emerging Legal Education

Juris Diversitas

Demonstrating how simulation can be constructed and

developed as a mechanism for delivering and assessing,
this book argues that simulation is a pedagogically valuable
and practical tool in teaching the modern law curriculum,
and discusses the claim that this form of experiential and
problem-based learning enables students to integrate the
classroom experience with the real world experiences they
will encounter in their professional lives. The study is based
on contributions from law teachers within the UK, Australia,
Hong Kong, South Africa and the USA, as well as the
authors own experiences in teaching law.

Advancing legal scholarship in the area of mixed legal

systems, as well as comparative law more generally, this
book expands the comparative study of the worlds legal
families to those of jurisdictions containing not only
mixtures of common and civil law, but also to those mixing
Islamic and/or traditional legal systems with those derived
from common and/or civil law traditions. This volume
will be an invaluable source for students and researchers
working in the areas of comparative law, legal pluralism,
the evolution of mixed legal systems, and the impact of
colonialism on contemporary legal systems. It will also be
an important resource for policy-makers and analysts.

A Comparative Perspective
Edited by Mirtn Mac Aodha, Council of the European
Union, Belgium
Law, Language and Communication

Legal lexicography or jurilexicography is the most neglected

aspect of the discipline of jurilinguistics, despite its great
relevance for translators, academics and comparative
lawyers. This volume bridges this gap by bringing together
contributions from ten jurisdictions from leading experts in
the field. The work addresses aspects of legal lexicography,
both monolingual and bilingual, in its various manifestations
in both civilian and common law systems and also compares
epistemic approaches in a subject that is inextricably bound
up with specific legal systems and specific languages.

This book presents a detailed and critical analysis of the

case law of the International Court of Justice through the
prism of a functional analysis between negotiations and
the judicial settlement of disputes. The focus is thus not on
the merits of each individual case, but on its contribution to
and clarification of this functional interplay. The systematic
analysis of the case law leads the way for more detailed
discussion and debate.

This book contributes to, and refocuses, public debates
about the incorporation of plural approaches into the English
legal system by examining a secular method of dispute
resolution practised by the Kurdish Peace Committee
in London. The pluralistic approach is seen by Kurdish
communities in the UK as widely applicable elsewhere, and
in a possible future Kurdish state, as a practical solution
to the challenges of a pluralistic life. The book provides a
substantive evidence base, using extensive ethnographic
data, and examines detailed case studies in the context of
the customs and practices of the Kurdish community.

This book addresses the present EU foundational dilemma

by looking at the problematic relationship between the ideal
model of integration and the reality of the 21st century. It
discusses the current role of the EU and whether it aspires
to be a democratic polity or a functional organization based
on inter-governmental bargaining and explores the ways and
extent to which the present European crisis could create a
politico-legal space for new possibilities and opportunities
for action.

The International Library of Essays on Criminal Law

Series Editor: Stephen Shute, Sussex University, UK
Criminal law is ever evolving, impacting on many more areas of citizens lives and underpinning the operation of the state more than ever before. This new series focuses on the underlining
theory and development of current criminal law and offers analyses of the key current topics in criminal law and the universal challenges ahead. The volumes include articles and essays
selected from a comprehensive range of international publications, and feature substantial introductions which survey the current state of the field, give an overview of important issues and
explain the significance of the texts in the collection. The series is an invaluable addition to libraries building their collections in the expanding fields of criminal law and criminology as well as
a reference resource for lecturers, researchers and students.

The Codification of Criminal Law

Edited by Michael Bohlander, Durham University, UK
and Daley Birkett, University of Nottingham, UK
This volume contributes to the codification debate by bringing
together research articles which compare and contrast the
experience of countries which have a criminal code with those
operating a case law system. Whereas wholesale codification
is a much more accepted phenomenon in the continental
law traditions, simplistic transplants from one legal tradition
can result in systemic frictions and other anomalies which
may offend domestic culture. This collection is an invaluable
reference tool which supports the discussion over codification
and promotes better understanding across the common law/
civil law divide.

Edited by Paul Roberts, University of Nottingham, UK

This volume brings together a collection of essays, many

of them scholarly classics, which form part of the debate
around three questions central to criminal law theory: firstly,
what conduct should be necessary for criminal liability,
and what sufficient? Secondly, what culpability should be
necessary for criminal liability, and what sufficient? Finally,
essays consider the question of how criminal law rules
should be best organized into a coherent and clarifying
doctrinal structure.

Nijmegen, The Netherlands
The essays selected for this volume discuss the meaning

criminal law, criminal procedure law and sentencing
law. The essays have been chosen for their high quality,
timeless approach and general attention to issues that are
of universal interest and thus not too closely related to the
technicalities of a specific criminal justice system, and offer
a general overview as well as an in-depth examination of
criminal law and human rights.

This volume offers a selection of significant and influential
research articles from the contemporary philosophical
debate over the fundamental concepts and structures of
Anglo-American criminal law. The articles consider the
moral legitimacy of punishment, excuse and justification
defenses and the conundrums of attempt liability, the bases
of culpability and criminal responsibility and the appropriate
limits of the criminal law. The introduction clarifies the
contexts in which these subjects are discussed, and the
volume includes an extensive bibliography.

Expert Evidence and Scientific

Proof in Criminal Trials

The articles and essays reproduced in this volume explore

the theoretical foundations of criminal trial procedure.
This is a precise, but also fundamentally question-begging,
description of the books scope and ambitions. Viewed
in isolation, each of the components of its title might be
regarded as conceptually problematic. There are wellrehearsed difficulties, for example, in separating trials
form pre-trial proceedings, partly because the trial/pre-trial
dichotomy is an artefact of institutional procedural traditions
and different legal systems draw the line in different places,
for reasons that seem to them compelling but would not
necessarily be viewed as logical by foreign observers.

The articles and essays reprinted in this volume explore
many of the most significant and pressing questions,
issues, opportunities and challenges presented by forensic
science and other expert evidence for contemporary criminal
adjudication. The focus is mainly on scientific proof in
criminal trials and the criminal trial, as both cultural icon
and institutional forum par excellence for resolving disputed
questions of fact, is a natural focal-point. Despite this, many of
the essays reproduced engage with broader general themes,
and there is some explicit discussion of pre-trial process.

Regulating Corporate Bribery

Anti-corruption in the UK and Germany

Edited by Anne Hayden, Auckland University of

Technology, New Zealand, Loraine Gelsthorpe,
University of Cambridge, UK, Venezia Kingi,
Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand
and Allison Morris, University of Cambridge, UK
and Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand

Law, Crime and Culture

This book is about the regulation of corporations that

use bribery in international commerce to win or maintain
overseas business contracts and interests. The author argues
that despite significant cultural differences between the
jurisdictions, UK and German anti-corruption authorities
face procedural, evidential, legal, financial and structural
difficulties that are leading to convergence in prosecution
policies. Although self-regulatory and hybrid mechanisms are
aiding the response and gaining some level of regulation, the
default position is one of accommodation by state agencies,
even where the will to enforce the law is high.

Series Editor: Maksymilian Del Mar, Queen Mary University of London, UK

This second series of three volumes is a companion to the first series of The Library of Essays in Contemporary Legal Theory,
published in 2010. The series brings together the most important and influential articles on the relationship between
contemporary legal theory and three distinct subject areas: legal history, the humanities and the natural sciences.
The issues explored range from the latest methodological debates in historical jurisprudence, through to the aesthetics of law
and legal theory, and philosophical scrutiny of the claims of genetics and neuroscience vis--vis fundamental legal concepts.
Each volume contains an original introduction which summarises the essential contributions of each chosen article and
highlights common themes and connections, as well as an extensive bibliography for further reading.
Taken as a whole, the chosen articles reflect the sometimes-neglected richness of contemporary legal theory, which has
sought to learn from and be informed by developments in the above disciplinary fields. In recognising the efforts of these
scholars, the series further opens up the agenda, and introduces new sources and resources for contemporary legal theory.
The series is an essential resource for libraries, scholars and researchers who are able to access the key articles in the field
within one volume, and an invaluable one-stop teaching resource for lecturers in the field of contemporary legal theory.

Legal Theory and Legal History

Edited by Maksymilian Del Mar, Queen Mary University
of London, UK and Michael Lobban, London School of
Economics, UK
The papers selected for this volume explore issues in the
study of historical jurisprudence. The topics range from the
challenge to legal positivism from the perspective of the
history of the common law, to the latest methodological
debates in socio-historical jurisprudence. Taken together,
these papers show historical jurisprudence to be a
creative discipline capable of yielding insights about
how to conceptualise legal change, how to give voice to
those operating outside of legal officialdom and how to
understand the relationship between law and politics.

The author argues here that there is no absolute food

undermines world food distribution is a vital and overlooked
factor. The book looks at EU and US agricultural policies and
World Trade Organization negotiations in agriculture and
proposes that the international trade regime reconciles trade
rules with the consideration of food security issues. Several
other enforceable solutions to reduce world hunger and
malnutrition are also advanced, including national capacity
building, the improvement of governance, and strategic

The Library of Essays on International Human Rights

Series Editor: Stephanie Farrior, Vermont Law School, USA

Beginning with the premise that the biopic is a form of

adaptation and an example of intermediality, this collection
examines the multiplicity of source texts and the concurrent
issues of fidelity and authenticity that accompany this genre.
Offering case studies of film biographies of literary and
cultural icons, the essays explore issues of production and
consumption, generic fluidity and hybridity, and the biopics
myth-making and myth-breaking potential.

Citing Miltons major prose works from the civil war

through to the Restoration, Walker reveals a Milton who is
antiformalist in his constitutional thought, unrevolutionary
in his general socio-political outlook, and markedly illiberal
on a wide range of social, religious and political issues.
Walkers book is thus a highly provocative challenge to the
current consensus that Milton is an early modern proponent
of republicanism, radicalism, revolution and liberalism.

Considering the crises of literary authority in nineteenthcentury French literature against the backdrop of the
Second Empire (18521870) and the aftermath of the bloody
Paris Commune of 1871, Seth Whidden focuses on the
phenomena literary collaboration, parody, destabilized
poetic form, the substitution of one poetic or narrative
voice with that of the many that enabled challenges to the
traditional status of the writer and, by extension, the political
authority that it reflected.

Situating the origins of American environmental fiction in

Wynn Sivils argues that these works of early environmental

978-1-4724-2182-1 60.00


Examining novels, trial transcripts, medico-legal documents,

broadsides, criminal and scientific writing, illustration and,
notably, Victorian melodrama, Bridget Walsh focuses on
the relationship between the domestic sphere, so central
to Victorian values, and the desecration of that space
by the act of murder. Her book tackles crucial questions
related to Victorian ideas of nationhood, national health,
inequality, newspaper coverage of murder, contested models
of masculinity and the portrayal of the female domestic
murderer at the fin de sicle.

Using the epistemological thought of Saint Augustine as the

key to thematic continuity, this book reads Pearl, Cleanness,
Patience and Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as a
composite text with a continuous narrative that produces
meaning through its own intricate internal structure. The
book ultimately provides the reader with a clear sense of
the poets perspective on the nature of human knowledge
as well as its moral implications and with a deeper
understanding of how the poems bring the theological and
philosophical problems of the Middle Ages to bear on the
individual human experience.

Tropes of monstrosity, madness, venereal disease, incest and

of iambic pentameter in English. Marina Tarlinskajas
statistical analysis of versification focuses on Shakespeare,
but places his work in the literary context of the times. Her
results offer new ways to think about the dating of plays,
the attribution of anonymous texts, and how collaborators
divided their task in co-authored dramas.

In recent years, the assumption that traditional songs
originated from a primarily oral tradition has been
challenged by research into street literature. Not only are
some traditional singers known to have learned songs from
printed sources, but most of the songs were composed
by professional writers. This volume engages with the
long-running debate over the origin of traditional songs by
examining street literatures interaction with and influence
on oral traditions.

Studies in Performance and Early Modern Drama

The essays in this volume investigate English, Italian,

Spanish, German, Czech, and Bengali early modern
theater, placing Shakespeare and his contemporaries in
the theatrical contexts of western and central Europe, as
well as the Indian sub-continent. Contributors examine the
movement of theatrical units, genres, performance practices
and dramatic texts across geo-linguistic borders. Mobility is
examined from both material and symbolic angles, revealing
a tension between transnational movement and resistance
to border-crossing.

Educating by the Book
Rebecca Davies, Loughborough University, UK
Arguing that the location of idealised maternity for women
is in the act of writing educational discourse rather than in
the physical performance of the maternal role, Davies plots
the formation of a written paradigm of maternal education
that associates maternity with educational authority. She
examines a wide range of genres by authors that include
Samuel Richardson, Mary Wollstonecraft, Maria Edgeworth
and Jane Austen.

SEMPRE Studies in The Psychology of Music

Black Popular Music in Britain

Since 1945
Edited by Jon Stratton, Curtin University, Australia and
Nabeel Zuberi, University of Auckland, New Zealand
Ashgate Popular and Folk Music Series

This book brings together current psychological and

educational research on issues related to advanced musical
performance learning within higher education contexts.
Each of the books four sections focus on one aspect
of music performance and learning: musics in higher
education and beyond; musical biographies and musical
journeys; performance learning; and developing expertise
and professionalism.

Black Popular Music in Britain since 1945 provides the first

broad scholarly discussion of this music since 1990. The
book critically examines key moments in the history of
Black British popular music from 1940s jazz to 1970s soul
and reggae, 1990s Jungle and the sounds of Dubstep and
Grime that have echoed through the 2000s. While the book
offers a history it also discusses the ways Black musics in
Britain have intersected with the politics of race and class,
multiculturalism, gender and sexuality, and debates about
media and technology.

The treatise on musica plana and musica mensurabilis written

by Lambertus/Aristoteles is our main witness to thirteenthcentury musical thought in the decades between the treatises
of Johannes de Garlandia and Franco of Cologne. This treatise
presents both the rudiments of the practice of liturgical chant

Coussemakers of 1864. Christian Meyers meticulous edition

Cathy Berberian (19251983) was a vocal performance artist,
singer and composer who pioneered a way of composing
with (and listening to) the voice in the musical worlds of
Europe, North America and beyond. As a modernist muse for
many avant-garde composers, she went on to embody the
principles of postmodern thinking in her work. This volume
celebrates her path through musical landscapes including
her approach to performance practice, gender performativity,
vocal pedagogy and the epistemological borders of art
music, the concert stage, the popular LP and the opera
industry of her times. The collection features primary

Beckett and Musicality

Edited by Sara Jane Bailes and Nicholas Till,

Discussion concerning the musicality of Samuel Becketts
writing now constitutes a familiar critical trope in Beckett
Studies, one that continues to be informed by the stillemerging evidence of Becketts engagement with music
throughout his personal and literary life, and by the ongoing
interest of musicians in Becketts work. The essays included in
this book explore a number of ways in which Becketts writings
engage with and are engaged by musicality, discussing familiar
and less familiar works by Beckett in detail.

The Special Period in Cuba was an extended period

of economic depression starting in the early 1990s,
characterised by the collapse of revolutionary values and
social norms, and a way of life conducted by improvised
solutions for survival, including hustling and sex-work.
During this period there developed a thriving, though
constantly harassed and destabilised, clandestine gay scene
(known as the ambiente). In the course of eight visits to
the city between 1995 and 2007, the last dozen years of
Fidel Castros reign, Moshe Morad became absorbed in
the Havanas gay scene, where he created a wide social
network, attended numerous secret gatherings - from
clandestine parties to religious rituals and observed
patterns of behaviour and communication. He discovered
the role of music in this scene as a marker of identity, a
source of queer codifications and identifications, a medium
of interaction, an outlet for emotion and a way to escape
from a reality of scarcity, oppression and despair.

This book contributes significantly to the debate

surrounding the importance of Ewan MacColl to the English
folk revival. MacColl gave two extended interviews with
co-editor Giovanni Vacca in 1987 and 1988 and these provide
the impetus for a re-examination of his methods, his politics
and his aesthetic aims. Great emphasis is placed on the
importance of seeing MacColl as not only a British, but a
European folk activist, through discussion of his hitherto
barely known work in Italy, enabling a re-contextualisation of
his work within a broader European context. Peggy Seeger
contributes a Foreword to the collection.

Matthesons Pices de clavecin (1714) in the context of his
work as a public intellectual who encouraged German
musicians and their musical public to embrace a universalism
of style and expression derived from contemporary
currents in music of the leading European nations. Searess

John Wallis (16161703), was one of the foremost British

mathematicians of the seventeenth century, and is also
remembered for his important writings on grammar and
logic. An interest in music theory led him to produce
translations into Latin of three ancient Greek texts those
of Ptolemy, Porphyry and Bryennius and involved him in
discussions with Henry Oldenburg, the Secretary of the
Royal Society, Thomas Salmon and others as his ideas
developed. The texts presented here cover the relationship
of ancient and modern tuning theory, the building of organs,
the phenomena of resonance, and other musical topics.

Louise Talma (19061996) was the first female winner of

two back-to-back Guggenheim Awards, the first American
woman to have an opera premiered in Europe, the first
female winner of the Sibelius Award for Composition, and
the first woman composer elected to the American Academy
and Institute of Arts and Letters. This book analyses Talmas
works in the context of her life, focusing on the effects on
her work of two major changes she made during her adult
life: her conversion to Catholicism, and her adoption of serial
compositional techniques. Employing approaches from
traditional musical analysis, feminist and queer musicology,
and womens autobiographical theory, this is the first fulllength study of this pioneering composer.

During the Reformation, the Book of Psalms became

one of the most well-known books of the Bible. This was
particularly true in Britain, where people of all backgrounds
memorized and sang poetic versifications of the psalms.
This book is the first to consider both English and Scottish
metrical psalmody, comparing the two traditions in print
and practice. It combines theological literary and musical
analysis to reveal new connections between the psalm texts
and their tunes, which it traces in the English and Scottish
psalters printed through 1640.

theatre. The theoretical scope of the book is developed from
a wide range of case studies, some of which are re-readings

Beckett), while others introduce or rediscover less-discussed
practitioners such as Joe Chaikin, Thomas Bernhard,
Elfriede Jelinek, Michael Thalheimer and Karin Beier.

This study unpacks the history of Verdis composition from

its creation, performance, and publication in the 1860s
through its appropriation as social and political commentary
and its perception by American broadcast media as a
weapon of art in the mid-twentieth century. The project also
offers the first fully documented study of the performances,
radio broadcast, and filming of the work by conductor Arturo
Toscanini during World War II. In presenting new evidence
about ways in which Verdis music was appropriated by
expatriate Italians and the US government for cross-cultural
propaganda, it addresses the intertwining of Italian and
American culture with regard to art, politics, and history.

This book takes its departure from an experiment presented

by Vincenzo Galilei in the Florentine Camerata in about 1580.
This first demonstration of the stile recitativo is known from
a single later source, a letter written in 1634 by Pietro dei
Bardi. This report has remained a curiosity in the history
of music, and it has seemed impossible to determine the
true significance of Galileis presentation. Unfortunately the
music is lost, yet we know the poetic text chosen by Galilei
was an excerpt from the Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri.
Starting from this information the author considers Galileis
motives for choosing this text and sheds light on some of the
features of his experiment.

Turbo-folk music is the most controversial form of popular

culture in the new states of former Yugoslavia. Beginning

cultural and political paradoxes of turbo-folk. Taking as
its starting point turbo-folks popularity across national
borders, Cvoro analyses key songs and performers in Serbia,
Slovenia and Croatia. What is proposed is a new way of
reading the relationship of contemporary popular music to
processes of cultural, political and social change and a
new understanding of how fundamental turbo-folk is to the
recent history of former Yugoslavia and its successor states.

Crossing British and European Racial

Faultlines, 19452010
Jon Stratton, Curtin University, Australia
Ashgate Popular and Folk Music Series

Jon Stratton explores the concept of song careers, referring

to how a song is picked up and then transformed by being
revisioned by different artists and in different cultural
contexts, to examine the ways that music has crossed racial
faultlines that have developed in the post-Second World
War era as a consequence of the movement of previously
colonized peoples to the countries that colonized them. It
is this migration of music that will appeal not only to those
studying popular music, but also cultural studies and race.

Music and Material Culture

Senza Vestimenta reintegrates poetic and musical traditions

in late medieval Italy through a fresh evaluation of more than
50 literary sources transmitting Trecento song texts. These
manuscripts have been long noted by musicologists, but
until now they have been used to bolster rather than to
debunk the notion that so-called poesia per musica was
relegated to the margins of poetic production. Jennings
revises this view by exploring how scribes and readers
interacted with song as a fundamentally interdisciplinary art
form within a broad range of literary settings.

Air power for warfighting is a story thats been told many

times. Air power for peacekeeping and UN enforcement is
a story that desperately needs to be told. In rich detail this
volume describes: aircraft transporting vital supplies to UN
peacekeepers and massive amounts of humanitarian aid
to war-affected populations; aircraft serving as the eyes in
sky to keep watch for the world organization; and combat
aircraft enforcing the peace. Rich poignant case studies
illuminate the past and present use of UN air power, pointing
the way for the future.

Recent great transformations are characterized by a

diffusion of power away from the traditional North Western
powers and towards the global South. This volume suggests
that the world will witness a new era of interdependent
hegemony, in which both the existing First World and the
emerging Second World are intertwined in a constant
process of shaping and reshaping the international order in
the nexus of national interest, regional orientation, common
economic and political agenda, political alliance and
potential conflicts. This collection juxtaposes, from different
perspectives and approaches, the discussion on the political
economy of the emerging world order with a focus on the
rising powers.

Global Interdisciplinary Studies Series

Dr. Lariv questions whether there is such a thing as a

European defense and security policy. This book analyzes
the integration process by clearly illustrating to the reader
the two sides of the argument in order to understand the
complexity of the problems in the different stages of the
creation and implementation of the European defense policy.
In doing so, this study asks the question of why the process
has been so halting and of such limited scope. Ultimately,
this book offers a unique base for fostering discussion,
understanding and critical thinking on the CSDP.

Debating the End of Yugoslavia is less an attempt to re-write

the dissolution of Yugoslavia, or to provide a different
narrative, than to take stock and reflect on the scholarship
to date. New sources and data offer fresh avenues of
research avoiding the passion of the moment that often
characterized research published during the wars and
provide contemporary perspectives on the dissolution. The
book outlines the state of the debate rather than focusing
on controversies alone and maps how different scholarly
communities have reflected on the dissolution of the
country, what arguments remain open in scholarly discourse
and highlights new, innovative paths to study the period.

Blendi Kajsiu, University of New York in Tirana, Albania
Southeast European Studies

Why did Albania enjoy some of the most successful

anti-corruption programs and institutions along with
what appeared to be growing levels of corruption during
the period 19982005? Looking at corruption through a
post-structuralist discourse analysis perspective this book
argues that the dominant corruption discourse in Albania
served primarily to institute the neoliberal order rather than
eliminate corruption. As a rare example of post-structuralist
discourse analysis of corruption this book can be useful
for future research on discourses of corruption in other

In this volume, as is reflected in the book title, the editors

make the conscious choice to use political as the umbrella
modifier for all entrepreneurship which takes place in
the polis. The editors and contributors fill a lacuna in the
political science literature by conceptually enhancing the
term political entrepreneurship through development of
a theoretical framework juxtaposed with empirical work.
They collectively test and advance theoretical assumptions
about the emergence and implementation of entrepreneurial
action in the polis and explore the role of political contexts
and structures as to whether and how they inform political
entrepreneurial action.

manifestations of gender and conflict, this book shows
how cognition and behaviour, agency and victimization, are
gendered beyond the popular stereotypes. Conflict not only
reconfirms social hierarchies and power relations, but also
motivates people to transgress cultural boundaries and
redefine their self-images and identities. The contributions
are a mix of classical ethnography, performance studies and
embodiment studies, showing emotions and feelings often

Maritime Power in the Black Sea provides the first

comprehensive assessment and evaluation of the
comparative maritime power of the six littoral states in the
Black Sea Turkey, Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Romania and
Bulgaria. This book examines the maritime capabilities
and assets of each of these states and also considers the

Gender in a Global/Local World

Numerous states have passed gender integration legislation

permanently admitting women into their military forces. As
a result, these states have dramatically increased womens
numbers, and improved gender equality by removing a
number of restrictions. Why do states abandon their policies
of exclusion and promote gender integration in a way that
womens military participation becomes an integral part of
military force? By examining twenty-four NATO member
states, this book argues that civilian policymakers and
military leadership no longer surrender to parochial gendered
division of the roles, but rather support integration to meet
the recruitment numbers due to military modernization,
professionalization and technological advancements.

Exploring how the application of these ideological principles

federal system, the research examines the ways in which
these ideological policies of the ruling party affect national
consensus, protection of human rights, the rights of minority
groups, separation of power principles and the relationship

Edited by Samina Yasmeen, University of Western

An Uneasy Alliance

Laclau, Negri, Badiou

Howard Wiarda, University of Georgia, USA

Oliver Harrison, Nottingham Trent University, UK

Drawing upon original case studies spanning North America,

Europe and Australia, Muslim Citizens in the West explores
how Muslims have been both the excluded and the excluders
within the wider societies in which they live. The book extends
debates on the inclusion and exclusion of Muslim minorities
beyond ideas of marginalisation to show that, while there
have undoubtedly been increased incidences of Islamophobia
since September 2001, some Muslim groups have played their
own part in separating themselves from the wider society.

In this important book, well known Comparativist, Howard J.

Wiarda, traces the long and controversial history of culture
studies, and the relations of political culture and identity
politics to political science. Under attack from structuralists,
institutionalists, Marxists, and dependency writers, Wiarda
examines and assesses the reasons for these attacks and
why political culture went into decline only to have a new
and transcendent renaissance and revival in the writings of
Inglehart, Fukuyama, Putnam, Huntington and many others.

Rethinking Political and International Theory

Since the onset of the Global Financial Crisis the ideas of

Karl Marx have once again become prominent in social
and political thought. This book turns to Marxs theory
of revolutionary subjectivity to assess the work of three
contemporary global theorists: Ernesto Laclau, Antonio
Negri, and Alain Badiou. While providing a critical
examination of the theory of revolutionary subjectivity in
Laclau, Negri and Badiou, due to the fact such aspects
were already present in Marxs own theory, this book also
offers insights into the nature of post-Marxism itself. Whilst
accepting their respective differences, the conclusion offers
a synthesis of all three theoretical approaches to understand
the constitution of revolutionary subjectivity today.

Life Outside the Pale of the Law

Emma Larking, Australian National University, Australia

Shaping US Military Law

Governing a Constitutional Military

Conflict resolution, conflict management and conflict

transformations are major themes in this unique book which
examines, explores and analyses the mediation attempts
of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe
in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Ohannes Geukjian
shows the most striking characteristic of a protracted
internal conflict such as this is its asymmetry and explains
that, without meeting basic human needs like identity,
recognition, security and participation, resolving any
protracted social conflict is very difficult.

Most Western liberal democracies are parties to the United

Nations Refugees Convention and all are committed to
the recognition of basic human rights, but they also spend
billions fortifying their borders, detaining unauthorised
immigrants, and policing migration. Meanwhile, public
debate over the Wests obligations to unauthorised
immigrants is passionate, vitriolic, and divisive. Refugees
and the Myth of Human Rights combines philosophical,
historical, and legal analysis to clarify the key concepts at
stake in the debate, and to demonstrate the threat posed by
contemporary border regimes to rights protection and the
rule of law within liberal democracies.

Since the United States entry into World War II, the federal
judiciary has taken a prominent role in the shaping of the
nations military laws. Yet, a majority of the academic legal
community studying the relationship between the Court
and the military establishment argues otherwise providing
the basis for a further argument that the legal construct of
the military establishment is constitutionally questionable.
Centring on the Cold War era from 1968 onward, this book
weaves judicial biography and a historic methodology based on

Outlining the historical context, and offering suggestions
for contemporary thinkers, this comprehensive overview
shows how all three major UK political parties have made
a significant contribution to the One Nation agenda over
the past century and a half. Re-asserting the One Nation
tradition inherent in interventionist liberals like Keynes and
Lloyd George, it encourages us to look beyond reformist high
Tory politicians such as Benjamin Disraeli and sketches out
precedents for current politicians in areas such as house
building, local government, the living wage, a financial
transaction tax, and the welfare state.

This book shows how the new architecture of aid has

the discursive construction and production of postcolonial societies; the changing focus of Western aid and

of the politics of inclusive exclusion. The author provides
detailed and original research on the new development

Parties, Elections and

Competition and Contamination Effects
Marc Guinjoan, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Spain
According to the Duvergerian theories, in the long run,
only viable parties are expected to stand for elections.
Non-viable parties should join a pre-electoral coalition with
another party or withdraw from competition entirely. Why
then do non-viable political parties throughout the world
systematically continue presenting candidates? This book
argues that political parties will take advantage of their
viability in an arena to present candidacies in other arenas
where they do not have chances to become viable.

Innovatively adopting a discursive approach, this book - the

as: What are women and men symbols of, and how is gender
constructed in policy discourse? It studies what functions
symbolic representation fulfils in the construction of gender,
what social roles get legitimized in policy discourse, and
how this affects power constellations, ultimately revealing

Despite the increasing volume of research on state building,
the use and uptake of findings by those involved in policymaking remains largely under-examined. As such, the
main themes running through this book relate to issues of
research influence, use and uptake into policy. It grapples
with problems associated with decision-making dynamics,
knowledge management and the policy process and draws
on concepts and analytical models developed within the
public policy and research utilization literature, from linear
models of instrumental use to the enlightenment function
of research.

This volume focuses on two key elements in the North

American and European security debate: the decline of both
the external threats to most North American and European
states, and that of budgetary resources available for defense.
These twin declines are coupled with a desire on the part of
civil leaders to engage the military in more domestic tasks
and the desire of senior military leaders to preserve force
structure, resulting in a dynamic in which civil leaders will
ask their militaries to do more, and military leaders will be
more inclined to say yes. As such, this book focuses on the
enormous increase in the provision of non-military services
and support asked of North American and European military

Understanding Statebuilding

When Care Work Goes Global

Traditional Governance and the Modern State

in Somaliland

Locating the Social Relations of Domestic


Rebecca Richards, University of Lancaster, UK

Edited by Mary Romero, Arizona State University, USA,

Valerie Preston, York University, Canada and Wenona
Giles, York University, Canada

Much analysis of state building focusses on dissecting

specific projects and attempting to identify what has gone
wrong in states such as Afghanistan and Iraq. What draws
less attention is what has gone right in non-interventionist
statebuilding projects within unrecognised states. By
examining this model in more depth a more successful
model of statebuilding emerges in which the end goal of
modern democracy and good governance are more likely to
be realized. Indeed states-within-states such as Somaliland
where external intervention in the statebuilding process is
largely absent can provide vital new lessons.

Gender in a Global/Local World

We know that migration systems link the women who

migrate and the households and organizations that employ
domestic and care workers, but how do these migration
systems work, and more importantly, what are their impacts
on the sending as well as the receiving societies? How do
sending and receiving societies regulate womens migration
for care work and how do these labour market exchanges
take place? How is reproductive labour changed in the
receiving society when it is done by women who are subject
to multifaceted othering/racializing processes? When Care

Achilles Goes Asymmetrical

Pauline M Kaurin, Pacific Lutheran University, USA
Military and Defence Ethics

While there has been extensive discussion on what counts as

military professionalism, that is what makes a soldier, sailor or
other military personnel a professional, the warrior archetype
(varied for the various roles and service branches) still holds
sway in the military self-conception, rooted as it is in the
more existential notions of war, honor and meaning. In this
volume, Kaurin uses Achilles as a touch stone for discussing
the warrior, military ethics and the aspects of contemporary
warfare that go by the name of asymmetrical war.

Anishinaabe Ways of
Knowing and Being
Vitality of Indigenous Religions

Very few studies have examined the worldview of the

Anishinaabeg from within the culture itself and none have
explored the Anishinaabe worldview in relation to their
efforts to maintain their culture in the present-day world.
Focusing mainly on the Minnesota Anishinaabeg, Gross
explores how their worldview works to create a holistic
way of living, which the Anishinaabeg call the Good Life.
However, as Gross also argues, the Anishinaabeg saw the
end of their world early in the 20th century and experienced
what he calls postapocalypse stress syndrome.

Archbishop Pole
The Archbishops of Canterbury Series

This fresh exploration of the life, work and writing of

Archbishop Pole, focuses particularly on Poles final years
(155658) as Archbishop of Canterbury. Stressing the events
and character of Poles English life, up to his exile in the
1530s, as well as in his final years in England, this book
explores his close relationship with Henry VIII and Mary I.
Portraying Pole as a crucial figure in the Catholic-Protestant
division, this book details the attempt to restore Roman
Catholicism as the national religion of England and Wales
by telling the life-story of the hinge figure in forging English
religious and political identity for several centuries. The
final section of this book draws together important and
illuminating source material written by Pole during his years
as Archbishop of Canterbury.

In Being as Communion philosopher and mathematician

William Dembski provides a non-technical overview of
his work on information. Dembski attempts to make good
on the promise of John Wheeler, Paul Davies, and others
that information is poised to replace matter as the primary
stuff of reality. With profound implications for theology and
metaphysics, Being as Communion develops a relational
ontology that is at once congenial to science and open to
teleology in nature. All those interested in the intersections

Robert William Keith Wilson

Liturgy, Worship and Society Series


George Augustus Selwyn (18091878) focuses on Selwyns

theological formation, which places him in the context of
the world of traditional high churchmanship, rather than
the Oxford Movement narrowly conceived. It argues that
his distinctiveness lay in the way in which he was able
to transplant his vision of Anglicanism to the colonial
context. Making use of Selwyns personal correspondence
and papers, as well as his unpublished sermons, the book
analyses his theological formation, his missionary policy,
his role within the formation of the colonial episcopate,
his attitude to conciliar authority and his impact upon the
diocesan revival in England.

Perceptible inspiration, a term used by John Wesley to

describe the complicated relationship between Holy Spirit,
religious knowledge, and the nature of spiritual being, is not
unlike the term Methodist which was also coined by critics of
Methodism during the eighteenth century in Britain. Wesleys
adversaries - especially the pseudonymous John Smith, with
whom Wesley exchanged letters for a period of three years
frequently attacked the plausibility of such a thing as direct
spiritual sensation, which Wesley in turn defended. What

In the digital world, Kierkegaards thought is valuable

in thinking about aesthetics as a component of human
development, both including but moving beyond the
religious context as its primary center of meaning.
Contributing to the debate about Kierkegaards conception
of the aesthetic, this book argues that Kierkegaards concern
is provocatively to explore how a self becomes Christian,
with aesthetics a dimension of such self-formation. At a
broader level, Jothen also focuses on the role, authority

Being divine seems to entail being omniscient, omnipotent

and omnipresent, but the New Testament portrays Jesus as
having human properties. It seems logically impossible that
any single individual could possess such mutually exclusive
sets of properties. A Kyptic Model of the Incarnation aims to
provide a critical reflection of these challenges and to offer
a compelling response integrating aspects from analytic
philosophy of religion, systematic theology, and historicalcritical studies.

the consequences of those actions for the society and the

Demonstrating that in late modernity, parallel to rising

nationalisms, there is a shift towards religious communities
becoming the central axis for cultural organization and
progressive thinking, this book presents Greece as a case
study based on empirical field data from contemporary
theology and religious education, and makes a unique

Porphyry in Fragments
Reception of an Anti-Christian Text
in Late Antiquity
Ariane Magny, Thompson Rivers University, Canada

The Greek philosopher Porphyry of Tyre had a reputation

as the fiercest critic of Christianity. It was well-deserved:
he composed fifteen discourses against the Christians, so
offensive that Christian emperors ordered them to be burnt.
We thus rely on the testimonies of three prominent Christian
writers to know what Porphyry wrote. Porphyry in Fragments
argues that Porphyrys actual thoughts became mixed with
the thoughts of the Christians who preserved his ideas, as
well as those of other Christian opponents.

This book finds that far from silencing women, the Qur`an
affirms the female voice as protester for justice and as

in divine revelation in the Islamic text, Georgina Jardim
returns to the scriptures of the Judeo-Christian counterpart
of the Abrahamic faiths, to investigate whether the Bible
may claim women as brokers of revelation. The result is an
enriched understanding of divine communication in the
Abrahamic scriptures and a commonplace for reasoning
about the female voice as speaker in the Word of God.

Glen J. Segger, Yale Institute of Sacred Music, USA

Liturgy, Worship and Society Series

In this book David Martin argues, against Juergen

Habermas, that religion and politics share a common mythic
basis and that it is misleading to contrast the rationality
of politics with the irrationality of religion. In contrast to
Richard Dawkins (and New Atheists generally), Martin
argues that the approach taken is brazenly unscientific and
that the proclivity to violence is a shared feature of religion,
nationalism and political ideology alike rooted in the
demands of power and social solidarity.

The English Civil War and its aftermath was a time of human
devastation, political uncertainty and religious instability.
The Church of England had not witnessed such liturgical
innovation since Thomas Cranmer, and would not see such
creativity again until the end of the twentieth century at
least in terms of liturgical texts. Segger examines the
theology and ecclesiology of Baxters liturgical opus. While
never approved for public use, the Reformed Liturgy remains
an important and creative liturgy representative of those who
fought for their Puritan convictions, but lost.

Exploring the Cognitive Science of Religion

Edited by Roger Trigg, University of Warwick and
University of Oxford, UK and Justin L. Barrett,
Fuller Graduate School of Psychology, USA
Ashgate Science and Religion Series

The cognitive science of religion is a new discipline

that looks at the roots of religious belief in the cognitive
architecture of the human mind. This book deals with the
philosophical and theological implications of the cognitive
science of religion which grounds religious belief in human
cognitive structures: religious belief is natural, in a way that
even scientific thought is not. Philosophers and theologians
from North America, UK and Australia, explore the alleged
conflict between truth claims and examine the roots of
religion in human nature.

Religion and Theology

Sacred Suicide
Edited by James R. Lewis, University of Troms, Norway
and Carole M. Cusack, University of Sydney, Australia
Ashgate New Religions

The label Suicide Cults has been applied to a wide variety

of different alternative religions, from Jonestown to the Solar
Temple to Heavens Gate. Additionally, observers have asked
if such group suicides are in any way comparable to Islamist
suicide terrorism, or to historical incidents of mass suicide,
such as the mass suicide of the ancient community of Masada.
Offering a valuable perspective on New Religious Movements
and on religion and violence, Sacred Suicide brings together
contributions from a diverse range of international scholars of
sociology, religious studies and criminology.

The validity of the religious quest is defended across

faiths. Yet it is not only the quest, but also the way in which
religions have developed which is of central significance.
Their committed followers live ordinary lives in the
mainstream of the world, working out their faith in relation
to life. In Sensible Religion, leading thinkers in world
religions explore how religions are in conversation with
other disciplines, bringing a transcendent perspective to the
discussion. Countering the argument that religion is at root
extremist and irrational, Sensible Religion brings together
thoughtful reflections by leading thinkers about humanitys
spiritual quest.

Sociological Theory and the

Question of Religion
Edited by Andrew McKinnon and Marta Trzebiatowska,
both at the University of Aberdeen, UK
Theology and Religion in Interdisciplinary
Perspective Series in Association with the BSA
Sociology of Religion Study Group

This book offers a variety of theoretical perspectives on the

study of religion that bridge the gap between mainstream
concerns of sociologists and the sociology of religion.
Following an assessment of the current state of the field, the
authors develop an emerging critical perspective within the
sociology of religion with particular focus on the importance
of historical background. Re-assessing the themes of
aesthetics, listening and different degrees of spiritual
self-discipline, the authors draw on ethnographic studies of
religious involvement in Norway and the UK.

Difference is Everything

Ashgate New Critical Thinking in Religion, Theology

and Biblical Studies

David Pitman, University of Queensland, Australia

Going beyond ordinary readings of Aquinas and building

a foundation for further insights into the works of both
theologians, this book draws out the implications of the
thought of Eckhart and Aquinas for contemporary issues,
including ecumenical and inter-religious dialogue, liturgy
and prayer, and religious inclusivity. Reading Aquinas and
Eckhart in light of each other reveals the profound depth
and orthodoxy of both of these scholars and provides a novel
approach to many theological and practical religious issues.

Ashgate New Critical Thinking in Religion, Theology

and Biblical Studies

Presenting an accessible introduction to the contemporary

issues and challenges facing all those engaged in the
further development of inter-faith relationships, dialogue
and partnership between the world religions, Pitman argues
that the future of world peace and prosperity depends on the
outcome. This is accomplished with particular reference to
ten key Twentieth Century theologians, each of whom had
significant influence in the field of inter-religious studies,
both during their lifetime and beyond.

Testing Fresh Expressions

Identity and Transformation

The Wisdom of the Spirit

John Walker, Diocese of Canterbury, UK

Gospel, Church and Culture

Ashgate Contemporary Ecclesiology

Edited by Martyn Percy, University of Oxford, UK and

Pete Ward, Kings College London, UK

Testing Fresh Expressions investigates whether fresh

expressions of church really do what is claimed for them
by the fresh expressions movement and, in particular,
whether their unique approach helps to reverse trends
of decline experienced by traditional churches. The book
examines those claims and untangles their sociological and
theological assumptions. From a careful study of factors
underlying attendance decline and growth, Walker argues
that long-term decline can be resisted only if churches are
better able to attract children, the non-churched or both.

Developed by Bruno Latour and his collaborators,

actor-network theory (ANT) offers crimes studies a
worthy intellectual challenge. It requires us to take the
performativity turn, consider the role of objects in our
analysis and conceptualize all actants (human and nonhuman) as relational beings. Thus power is not the property
of one party, but rather it is an effect of the relationships
among actants. Students, academics and policy-makers
will benefit from reading this collection in order to explore

Against Old Europe

Raphael Schlembach, Liverpool Hope University, UK

Edited by Linda Duits, Utrecht University, The

Netherlands, Koos Zwaan, Inholland University of
Applied Sciences, The Netherlands and Stijn Reijnders,
Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Exploring the work of key theorists critical of globalization,

including Habermas, Negri, Holloway, Postone and de
Benoist, this book examines critical theory approaches to
alter-globalization, illustrated with concrete examples of
movements within contemporary Europe. In so doing, it
invites readers to explore the charges of nationalism, antiAmericanism and antisemitism brought against parts of the
alter-globalization movement. Providing a new perspective
on critiques of globalization, Against Old Europe will appeal
to sociologists and social and political theorists studying
social movements, anti-globalization activism and European
politics and identity.

The twenty-two chapters of this volume elucidate the key

themes of the fan studies vernacular. As the contributing
authors draw from recent empirical work around the globe,
the book provides fresh insights and innovative angles
on the latest developments within fan cultures, both
online and offline. Because the volume is specifically set
up as companion for researchers, the chapters include
recommendations for the further study of fan cultures.
As such, it represents an essential reference volume for
researchers and scholars in the fields of cultural and
media studies, communication, cultural geography and the
sociology of culture.

In Australia, country girl names a field of experiences and

names a set of ideas about Australia that is surprisingly
consistent across the long twentieth century despite also
working as an index of changing times. This book offers
a fresh perspective on this history and a new focus on the

that the country girl has not only been a long-standing

importantly, figured as a point of dialogue between the

Anthropological Explorations
in Queer Theory
Mark Graham, Stockholm University, Sweden
Queer Interventions

Anthropological Explorations in Queer Theory offers a wide

ranging fusion of queer theory with anthropological theory,
shifting away from the discussion of gender categories and
identities that have often constituted a central concern of
queer theory and instead exploring the queer elements of
contexts in which they are not normally apparent. Engaging
with a number of apparently non-sexual topics, including
embodiment and fieldwork, regimes of value, gifts and
commodities, diversity discourses, biological essentialisms,
intersectionality, the philosophy of Bergson and Deleuze,
and the representation of heterosexuality in popular
culture, this book moves to discuss central concerns of
contemporary anthropology, drawing on both the latest
anthropological research as well as classic theories.

In Australia, country girl names a field of experiences and

life-stories by girls and women who have grown up outside
of the demographically dominant urban centres. It also
names a set of ideas about Australia that is surprisingly
consistent across the long twentieth century despite also
working as an index of changing times. This book offers

ever-changing experience of Australian rural life. It argues
that the country girl has not only been a long-standing
counterpart to the Australian bush man she has, more
importantly, figured as a point of dialogue between the
country and the city for popular culture and for public
sphere narratives about Australian society and identity.

Central state and non-covert surveillance began in earnest at

the start of the twentieth century. By the start of the twentyfirst century, the UK was one of the most surveilled societies
on earth. This timely volume by Inga Kroener analyses the
particular combination of factors that have created this
surveillance state.

A detailed and richly illustrated analysis of charisma and the

political and cultural conditions in which charismatic figures
arise, this work of historical sociology critically engages with
Max Webers ambiguous concept of charisma to examine
the charismatic careers of a number of figures, including
Joan of Arc, Hitler, Nelson Mandela and Jesus. With close
attention to the social and political legacy of charisma
for modern capitalism, it also examines the emergence
of a global class of the super-rich, a process buttressed
by a belief on the part of business leaders in their own
charismatic powers.

The Cultural Politics of Media and Popular Culture

Drawing on a range of new media sources, including

websites, chat rooms, blogs and forums, this book
explores the concerns expressed by advocates of white
power, with regard to racial hierarchy and social order,
the crisis of traditional American values, the perpetuation
of liberal, feminist, elitist ideas, the degradation of the
family and the fetishization of black men. What emerges
is an understanding of the instruments of power in white
supremacist discourses, in which a series of connections
are drawn between popular culture, multiculturalism, sexual
politics and state functions, all of which are seen to be
working against white men.

Edited by Andy Bennett, Jodie Taylor and Ian Woodward

all at Griffith University, Australia

Interdisciplinary Disability Studies

Film Philosophy at the Margins

This book provides the reader with a ground-breaking

understanding of disability and social movements. By
describing how disability is philosophically, historically,
and theoretically positioned, Carling-Jenkins is able to then
examine disability relationally through an evaluation of the
contributions of groups engaged in similar human rights
struggles. The book locates disability rights as a new social
movement and provides an explanation for why disability
has been divided rather than united in Australia. Finally, it
investigates whether the recent campaign to implement
a national disability insurance scheme represents a reemergence of the movement.

Responses to heterosexual female masochism have ranged

from neglect in theories that focus predominantly or
only upon masochistic sexuality within male subjects, to
condemnation from feminists who regard it as an inverted
expression of patriarchal control rather than a legitimate
form of female desire. It has commonly been understood
as a passive form of sexuality, thus ignoring the potential
for activity and agency that the masochistic position may
involve, which underpins the crucial argument that female
masochism can be conceived as enquiring ethical activity.
Female Masochism in Film avoids these reductive and
simplistic approaches by focusing on the ambivalences and
intricacies of this type of sexuality and subjectivity.

The Festivalization of Culture explores the links between

various local and global cultures, communities, identities
and lifestyle narratives as they are both constructed and
experienced in the festival context. Drawing on a wide
range of case studies from Australia and Europe, festivals
are examined as sites for the performance and critique
of lifestyle, identity and cultural politics; as vehicles for
the mobilization and cementation of local and global
communities; and as spatio-temporal events that inspire and
determine meaning in peoples lives.


The editors of this book examine social movement scholars

use of contemporary concepts and paradigms in the study of
protest as they analyse the extent to which these tools are valid
(or not) in very different regional - and thus political or cultural contexts. The chapters cover examples including urban riots in
France and in Great Britain, the World Social Forums of Dakar
and Nairobi, the struggles of precarious workers in Italy and
Greece, unemployed mobilization in Germany and Ireland, the
mobilization of the Roma and Muslims in Europe, the Brazilian
landless movement, the mobilization of small farmers in
France, as well as mobilization in authoritarian states such as
Morocco and Cuba.

Disrupting, questioning and altering the taken-for-granted

challenge the different ways in which social normalcy

qualitative and ethnographic data alongside print and

illnesses that trouble the practices and relations of human
and social life. Challenging a mere deficit-model of illness,
it examines how the cosmopolitics of illness require and

Liminality and the Modern

Living Through the In-Between

Bjrn Thomassen, Roskilde University, Denmark

Globalization, Crises, and Change

Hyper Sexual, Hyper Masculine?

Written by a team of experts on the contemporary global

capitalist political economy, this ground-breaking volume
provides critical analyses of the causes and consequences
of the Great Recession of 20082009. Through a careful
examination of the origin, development and aftermath of
the catastrophic economic crisis, editor Berch Berberoglu
and his colleagues demonstrate that those most responsible
for the economic collapse are the ones least affected by its
devastating impact.

Gender, Race and Sexuality in the Identities

of Contemporary Black Men

Liminality and the Modern offers a comprehensive

introduction to this concept, discussing its development
and laying out a conceptual and experiential framework
for thinking about change in terms of liminality. Applying
this framework to questions surrounding the implosion of
non-spaces, the analysis of major historical periods and
the study of political revolution, the book also explores its
possible uses in social science research and its implications
for our understanding of the uncertainty and contingency of
the liquid structures of modern society.

Presenting new interview and auto-ethnographic data,
and drawing on an array of theoretical approaches
methodologies, Hyper Sexual, Hyper Masculine? explores
the formation of gendered and sexual identity in the lives
of black men, shedding light on the manner in which these
are affected by class and social structure. It examines the
intersecting oppressions of race, gender and class, while
acknowledging and discussing the extent to which black
mens social lives differ as a result of their varying degrees
of cumulative disadvantage.

Searching for New Horizons
Karen Christensen, University of Bergen, Norway and

frameworks, evaluating past and present policy on online
gambling. A rich examination of the prevalence, incidence
and experience of a range of criminal activities linked to
gambling on the Internet, this book will appeal to scholars

Racial Prescriptions explores the politics of dealing with
health inequities through targeting pharmaceuticals at
specific racial groups based on the idea that they are
genetically different. Drawing on the introduction of
BiDil to treat heart failure among African Americans,
this book contends that while racialized pharmaceuticals
are ostensibly about fostering life, they also raise thorny
questions concerning the biologization of race, the
reproduction of inequality, and the economic exploitation of
the racial body.

Classical and Contemporary Social Theory

Contemporary Social Work Studies

Cristensen and Guldviks Migrant Care Workers provides

insight to the historical context for public care work and
shows how migration policies, general welfare and longterm care policies as well as cultural differences in values
in the UK and Norway set the context for how migrant care
workers can realise their individual life projects. The authors
discuss what might be called a new type of migrant one
who is neither a victim of the divide between the global
north and the global south, nor someone leaving family
behind, but individuals using care work as a part of their
own life project of potential self-improvement.

The Poetics of Crime is an invitation to reconsider and

reimagine how criminological knowledge may be creatively
and poetically constructed, obtained, corroborated and
applied. Departing from the conventional understanding
of criminology as a discipline concerned with refined
statistical analyses, survey methods and quantitative
measurements, this book shows that criminology can and
indeed should move beyond such confines to seek sources
of insight, information and knowledge in the unexplored
corners of poetically and creatively inspired approaches and

Citizenship as a status assumes that all those encompassed

by the term citizen are included, albeit within the
boundaries of the nation-state. Yet citizenship practices can
be both inclusionary and exclusionary, with far-reaching
ramifications for both nationals and non-nationals. This
volume explores the concept of citizenship and its practices
within particular contexts and nation-states to identify
whether its claims to inclusivity are justified. This will show
whether the exclusionary dimensions experienced by some
citizens and non-citizens are linked to deficiencies in the
concept, country-specific policies or how it is practiced in
different contexts.

An Ethnomethodological Study of
Experimental Physics
Philippe Sormani, University of Vienna, Austria

Shedding light on the ways in which fat embodiment is lived,

experienced, regulated and (re)produced across a range
of cultural sites and contexts, Queering Fat Embodiment
destabilises established ideas about fat bodies, making
explicit the intersectionality of fat identities. It represents
a paradigm shift within fat studies, challenging the field
of study which has primarily reproduced a white, ableist,
heteronormative subjectivity in its analyses.

Respecifying Lab Ethnography


Directions in Ethnomethodology and Conversation


Respecifying Lab Ethnography delivers the first

ethnomethodological study of current experimental physics
in action, describing the disciplinary orientation of lab
work and exploring the discipline in its social order, formal
stringency and skilful performance - in situ and in vivo. In
bringing together two major strands of ethnomethodological
inquiry, reflexive ethnography and video analysis, which
have hitherto existed in parallel, Respecifying Lab
Ethnography introduces a practice-based video analysis.
In doing so, the book recasts conventional distinctions to
shed fresh light on methodological issues surrounding the
descriptive investigation of social practices more broadly.

The Politics of Collective Identity Formation

The Rise of Roller Derby

Ioana Bunescu, Malm University, Sweden

Adele Pavlidis, Griffith University, Australia and Simone

Fullagar, University of Bath, UK

This path-breaking book explains the processes through

which the heterogeneous population of Roma in Europe
constitutes itself into a transnational collective identity
through the practices and discourses of everyday life, as
well as through those of identity politics. It illustrates how
the collective identity formation of the Roma in Europe
is constituted simultaneously in the local, national, and
European contexts, drawing attention to the mismatches
and gaps between these levels, as well as the creative
opportunities for achieving this political aim.

encountering global and local transformations. Divided into
three parts, topics covered include the changing social work
mandate throughout history; social work paradigms and

Gender, Bodies and Transformation

As a new breed of lifestyle sport enthusiasts derby grrrls

the nexus of pleasure, pain and power relations. Offering
a socio-cultural analysis of the rise and reinvention of
roller derby as both a new, globalized womens sport and
an everyday creative leisure space, this book explores the
manner in which roller derby has emerged as a gendered
space for self-transformation, belonging and embodied
contest, in which women are invited to experience their
emotions differently, embrace pain and overcome limits.

The Fight for Ethical Fashion

The Origins and Interactions of the Clean
Clothes Campaign
Philip Balsiger, European University Institute, Italy
The Mobilization Series on Social Movements,
Protest, and Culture

Drawing on insights from qualitative fieldwork using a

wide range of empirical sources, Philip Balsiger traces
the emergence of the Clean Clothes Campaign back to
the rise of consumer campaigns and shows how tactics
were adapted to market contexts in order to have retailers
adopt and monitor codes of conduct. By comparing the
interactions between campaigners and their corporate
targets in Switzerland and France (two countries with a
very different history of consumer mobilization for political
issues), this ground-breaking book also reveals how one
campaign can provoke contrasting reactions and forms of
market change.

A South African Perspective

Peter Westoby, University of the Free State, South Africa
and The University of Queensland, Australia
By examining community development stories as
experienced on the ground, Westoby is able to show how
the poor are organising themselves using various forms
of community development as well as demonstrating how
the state and non-state actors are attempting to organise,
engage or accompany the poor through community
development. The book also breaks new ground in
theorising the practice of community development, drawing
inductively from the stories analysed. Theorising the
Practice of Community Development draws upon a unique
analytical framework to help illuminate current community
development policy and programme challenges, along with
practice dilemmas and wisdom.
