Epistemology of the Closet

2282.00 руб.*

Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick

Epistemology of the Closet

The homosexual closet, by Sedgwick's yardstick, is "the defining structure for gay oppression in this century." She disagrees strongly with those who separate gays and straights as "distinct kinds of persons," with no common humanity. Her close readings of Melville's Billy Budd , Wilde's Dorian Gray and of Proust, Nietzsche, Henry James and Thackeray bristle with keen observations relating entrenched fears of same-sex relationships to contemporary gay-bashing and obvious displays of heterosexual or "macho" attitudes. But Sedgwick ( Between Men ) does not prove her overstated thesis that homo/hetero distinction obtains with gender, class and race in determining "all modern Western identity and social organization." Obtuse, cumbersome, academic prose limits the appeal of this treatise.

The People of Bali

3279.00 руб.*

Angela Hobart

The People of Bali

This study provides insight to the history and culture of the people of Bali, from prehistoric times to the present. Bali is a small tropical island in the centre of the Indonesian archipelago, prone to earthquakes and devastating volcanic activity, renowned for its natural beauty. Bali has been called the island of the Gods. It is the only area of Indonesia that remains predominantly Hindu, retaining elements from a rich cultural tradition when Indian influences penetrated the island over a thousand years ago. At the same time the Balinese have shown remarkable ability to blend the old with the new. After a description of the island?s geography, the book describes the history of the Balinese people, from the earliest traces of human habitation, through the development of its ancient civilization, the influences of Tantric Buddhism and Hinduism, the subjugation of Bali by the Javanese empire, and the subsequent autonomy of the eight Balinese kingdoms for several centuries until...
Closing the Gender Gap

Closing the Gender Gap

The education gender gap is closing. Since the 1980s examination results have changed dramatically, as girls have "caught up" and, in some cases, overtaken boys. Through an analysis of the postwar transformation in British economic, social and cultural life, this important book provides valuable insights into how and why this unprecedented change has taken place. In particular, the book focuses on the welfare state and the education reforms under Margaret Thatcher which encouraged this momentum for change despite her personal efforts to re–instil Victorian educational values. These reforms, the authors argue, coupled with the women?s movement, re–shaped girls? and boys? identities and educational choices irrevocably, but not necessarily in the same or complementary ways. Closing the Gender Gap will be essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students in education, sociology and gender studies.
A Companion to Gender History

5972.00 руб.*

Teresa A. Meade

A Companion to Gender History

A Companion to Gender History surveys the history of women around the world, studies their interaction with men in gendered societies, and looks at the role of gender in shaping human behavior over thousands of years. It contains both thematic essays, which demonstrate how gender has intersected with other historical topics, and chronological–geographic essays, which explore gender in one area of the world during a specific period. All the essays consider the importance of class, region, ethnicity, race, and religion to the formation of gendered societies. The contributions are written by scholars from across the world, including Canada, Britain, Australia, India, New Zealand, and the United States, as well as by scholars for whom English is not their first language. One of the key points to emerge from the volume as a whole is that no generalization about gender has applied to all times or all places.
Shadow Separatism: Implications for Democratic Consolidation

Matthew Crosston

Shadow Separatism: Implications for Democratic Consolidation

Examining autonomy in the Russian Federation, Matthew Crosston ascertains how the regional use of bilateral autonomy treaties has influenced the long-term stability, legitimacy and efficacy of the state. The study challenges some long-accepted conclusions about democratization and the devolution of power, advancing into new international arenas Riker and Dahl's relatively-ignored theoretical concerns that decentralized federations are ineffective and disintegrative while centralized federations are consolidating. Scholars of Russian politics, democratization, ethnic conflict, comparative intergovernmental relations and development will find this book particularly stimulating. Формат: 16 см x 24 см.
Reliability and Validity in Qualitative Research

901.00 руб.*

Jerome Kirk, Marc L. Miller

Reliability and Validity in Qualitative Research

Kirk and Miller define what is - and what is not - qualitative research. They suggest that the use of numbers in the process of recording and analyzing observations is less important than that the research should involve sustained interaction with the people being studied, in their own language and in their own surroundings. "Qualitative research conducted as science should complement nonqualitative science", they observe. "Understanding the workings of scientific endeavour, whether it is of the natural or social variety, entails an appreciation of its objectivity... By this convention, the objectivity of a piece of qualititative research is evaluated in terms of the reliability and validity of its observations on culture". After an introductory chapter on objectivity, the authors discuss the role of reliability and validity in the unfolding of science, and the problems that may arise when these two issues are neglected. They present a paradigm for the qualitative...

Ponting, Clive

Pimlico History Of 20th Century

How has the world changed in the last century? As we look back across a hundred years of turbulence, Clive Ponting provides a major reassessment of what the twentieth century has meant to people throughout the world. "The Pimlico History of the Twentieth Century" analyses the fundamental forces of population, industry and their consequences for the environment. It traces the rise and full of empires, the impact of nationalism, examines domestic politics from all political perspectives, and considers the darker side of history in the growing repressive power of states across the world and the most terrible of twentieth-century crimes - genocide. "The Pimlico History of the Twentieth Century" is a provocative and challenging analysis of the whole world in the twentieth century, combining a global sweep with an eye for detail and individual experiences.

Tom Kindt, Hans-Harald Muller

Implied Author: Concept and Controversy (Narratologia 9)

This book addresses itself to the concept of the implied author, which has been the cause of controversy in cultural studies for some fifty years. The opening chapters examine the introduction of the concept in Wayne C. Booth's "Rhetoric of Fiction" and the discussion of the concept in narratology and in the theory and practice of interpretation. The final chapter develops proposals for clarifying or replacing the concept.
Language Variation as Social Practice

4935.00 руб.*

Penelope Eckert

Language Variation as Social Practice

Linguistic Variation as Social Practice is a study of the speech of the adolescent population of a midwestern high school, relating individuals? subtle patterns of pronunciation and grammar to participation in the peer social order. Based on two years of sociolinguistic and ethnographic fieldwork in one school, supplemented by shorter periods of fieldwork in three other schools, the study focuses on the polarized social categories, the "jocks" and the "burnouts," that dominate social organization in all of these schools. This book describes the social categories, networks, and practices that constitute the local adolescent social order, relates these to wider patterns in the urban–suburban area, and ultimately to wider societal patterns. Linguistic Variation as Social Practice is an ideal text for advanced students of sociolinguistics and anthropological linguistics.
