Demons and Dancers: Performance in Late Antiquity

4648.00 руб.*

Ruth Webb

Demons and Dancers: Performance in Late Antiquity

Compared to the wealth of information available to us about classical tragedy and comedy, not much is known about the culture of pantomime, mime, and dance in late antiquity. Charges of obscenity and polemical anti-theater discourse have, at times, erased these popular performance traditions from the modern imagination. Demons and Dancers returns us to the times and places where those great ancient theaters were more than picturesque ruins dotting the Mediterranean landscape. Ruth Webb fills this gap in our knowledge of the ancient world and provides us with a richly detailed look at social life in the late antique period through an investigation of its performance culture. The book focuses on the eastern empire, from Greece proper to modern-day Turkey and Egypt, between the second and sixth centuries CE. Using some of the tools provided by modern performance theory, this book explains how audiences interpreted the actions on stage, how the status of male and female performers...

Dignity and Defiance: Stories from Bolivia's Challenge to Globalization

Dignity and Defiance is a powerful, eyewitness account of Bolivia's decade-long rebellion against globalization imposed from abroad. Based on extensive interviews, this story comes alive with first-person accounts of a massive Enron/Shell oil spill from an elderly woman whose livelihood it threatens, of the young people who stood down a former dictator to take back control of their water, and of Bolivia's dramatic and successful challenge to the policies of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Featuring a substantial introduction, a conclusion, and introductions to each of the chapters, this well-crafted mix of storytelling and analysis is a rich portrait of people calling for global integration to be different than it has been: more fair and more just.

Dilemmas of European Integration: The Ambiguities and Pitfalls of Integration by Stealth

Dilemmas of European Integration: The Ambiguities and Pitfalls of Integration by Stealth

If one lesson emerges clearly from fifty years of European integration it is that political aims should be pursued by overtly political means, and not by roundabout economic or legal strategies. The functionalist strategy of promoting spillovers from one economic sector to another has failed to achieve a steady progress towards a federal union, as Jean Monnet and other functionalists had hoped. On the other hand, the unanticipated results of 'integration through law' have included over-regulation and an institutional framework which is too rigid to allow significant policy and institutional innovations. Thus, integration by stealth has produced sub-optimal policies and a steady loss of legitimacy by the supranational institutions. Both the functionalist approach and the classic Community Method are becoming obsolete. This major statement from a leading European scholar provides the most thorough analysis currently available of the pitfalls and ambiguities of 50 years of European...
Discourses of Tolerance and Intolerance in the European Enlightenment (UCLA Clark Memorial Library Series)

Discourses of Tolerance and Intolerance in the European Enlightenment (UCLA Clark Memorial Library Series)

The idea of tolerance is one of the most enduring legacies of the Enlightenment. However, there is a surprising lack of scholarly works that attempt to analyse the influence of tolerance on the individual during this period. This collection assesses, for the first time, the positive and negative impact of discourses and theories of tolerance upon the lives of individuals in eighteenth-century Europe.Featuring an internationally renowned group of contributors, this volume looks at the concept of tolerance at the point where the individual, or group, converges or clashes with the state. Though it appears to provide grist for the mill of Enlightenment critics such as Adorno, Horkheimer, Foucault, and MacIntyre by confronting specific cases in which individual freedoms are forced to acquiesce to state control and authority in the guise of tolerance, the essays also offer a cautionary tale of critical restraint in the post-9/11 world. By reflecting on similar discrepancies in the interplay...
Dobro Guitars - A Pictorial History

Dobro Guitars - A Pictorial History

This is a book about guitars, but it is also about people - the builders and musicians who, despite overwhelming odds, made the Dobro a part of our culture. At several points in its history the instrument nearly went the way of the harp guitar or the banjolele. But each time extinction loomed a single player stepped forward to capture the interest of a new generation. Now that danger has faded - more people play the Dobro (or resonator guitar to be politically correct) today than ever before. Features include: information on dating your Dobro, a 32-page color section, builders of resonator guitars today, a section on players from all over the world, and hundreds of photos with rare pictures never-before published.

Doctors and Slaves: A Medical and Demographic History of Slavery in the British West Indies, 1680-1834

In this study Professor Sheridan presents a rich and wide-ranging account of the health care of slaves in the British West Indies, from 1680-1834. He demonstrates that while Caribbean island settlements were viewed by mercantile statesmen and economists as ideal colonies, the physical and medical realities were very different.
Dubious Alliance: The Making of Minnesota's DFL Party

John Earl Haynes

Dubious Alliance: The Making of Minnesota's DFL Party

The formation of the Democratic-Farmer-Labor party of Minnesota took place in a context of intense factional struggle that lasted from the death of Governor Floyd B. Olson in 1936 to the election of Hubert Humphrey to the U.S. Senate in 1948. Dubious Alliance, the first full account of this critical chapter in the state’s political history, has wider significance not only because many of the leading figures in the story have played a role in national politics, but also because it deals with issues—chief among them, the origins of Cold War liberalism—that matter far beyond the boundaries of a single state. John Haynes follows the struggle from its inception to the postwar battle within the new DFL between Popular Front adherents and anti-Communist liberals led by Minneapolis Mayor Hubert Humphrey. He makes clear that the struggle with the Popular Front was the formative political experience of Humphrey’s generation; those who fought with him, and who became active in national...
Dynamic of Destruction: Culture and Mass Killing in the First World War (The Making of the Modern World)

Alan Kramer

Dynamic of Destruction: Culture and Mass Killing in the First World War (The Making of the Modern World)

From the Western Front to the Balkans, from Italy to the war in the East, the First World War was the most apocalyptic conflict the world had ever known. Hailed by the New York Times Book Review as both "stimulating, scholarly, and shrewd" and "rich in original ideas," Dynamic of Destruction reveals how and why the civilized nations of Europe descended into an unprecedented orgy of destruction. Using a wide range of examples and striking eye-witness accounts from England, France, Germany, and elsewhere, award-winning historian Alan Kramer brings home the reality of the Great War, painting a picture of an entire continent plunging into a chilling new world of mass mobilization, total warfare, and the celebration of nationalist or ethnic violence--often directed expressly at the enemy's civilian population. Kramer examines the psychological impact of trench warfare, addresses the question of German atrocities (were the Germans particularly barbaric, or was savage behavior common on all...

Neil R. Storey

East End Murders: From Jack the Ripper to Ronnie Kray (True Crime History)

As well as the murders of Jack the Ripper—perhaps the most infamous in history—nine other cases are investigated in detail: the still mysterious Ratcliffe Highway Murders of 1811; Henry Wainwright, who dismembered his mistress and rolled up her remains in a carpet in 1874; Israel Lipski, whose name became a term of derision and abuse against Jews in East London for years following his conviction for the murder of a young woman in 1887; the unsolved murder of Frances Coles in 1891; the Whitechapel High Street Newspaper Shop Murder in 1904; the Houndsditch Murders and the Siege of Sydney Street in 1910, in which a robbery plotted by Russian anarchists went badly wrong; the throat-cutting William Cronin in 1925; the Bow Road Cinema Murder in 1934; and finally the shooting of George Cornell by Ronnie Kray at the Blind Beggar pub in 1966.

East Quilts West

These extraordinary quilt blocks explore themes and images never before encountered in quilts. Some celebrate typically American subjects like the Cadillac and the Charleston, the Indianapolis 500 and Radio City Music Hall. Others explore Japanese images like the rolling waves of a Hokusai ocean or the delicate rituals of the cherry blossom festival. All of them use surprising approaches to color, design, and fabric that will stimulate and inspire any quilter.
Eat Thy Neighbour: A History of Cannibalism

2135.00 руб.*

Daniel Diehl, Mark P. Donnelly

Eat Thy Neighbour: A History of Cannibalism

This study puts cannibalism into its social and historical perspective. Even in an age when almost nothing is sacred, numerous prohibitions surround the subject, and yet a dark fascination with the subject remains. Characters include Sweeny Todd, Jeffrey Dahmer, Armin Meiwes, and much to the pleasure of Boris Johnson the inhabitants of Papua New Guinea. All tastes are catered for in this hugely compelling book that is always vivacious but never salacious.
Eccentricity and the Cultural Imagination in Nineteenth-Century Paris

Eccentricity and the Cultural Imagination in Nineteenth-Century Paris

What did it mean to call someone 'eccentric' in nineteenth-century Paris? And why did breaking with convention arouse such ambivalent responses in middle-class readers, writers, and spectators? From high society to Bohemia and the demi-monde to the madhouse, the scandal of nonconformism provoked anxiety, disgust, and often secre yearning. In a culture preoccupied by the need for order ye simultaneously drawn to the values of freedom and innovation, eccentricity continually tested the boundaries of bourgeois identity, ultimately becoming inseparable from it. This interdisciplinary study charts shifting French perceptions of the anomalous and bizarre from the 1830s to the fin de siecle, focusing on three key issues. First, during the July Monarchy eccentricity was linked to fashion dandyism, and commodity culture; to many Parisians it epitomized the dangerous seductions of modernity and the growing prestige of the courtesan. Second, in the aftermath of the 1848 Revolution eccentricity...
