Ashgate Publishing Limited, 2006. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine Condition/No Dust Jacket. Front and back boards a little marked. Has conflict in Northern Ireland kept political dimensions of religion alive, and has religion played a role in fuelling conflict? Conflict in Northern Ireland is not and never will be a holy war. Yet religion is more socially and politically significant than many commentators presume. In fact, religion has remained a central feature of social identity and politics throughout conflict as well as recent change. There has been an acceleration of interest in the relationship between religion, identity and politics in modern societies. Building on this debate, Claire Mitchell presents a challenging analysis of religion in contemporary Northern Ireland, arguing that religion is not merely a marker of ethnicity and that it continues to provide many of the meanings of identity, community and politics. In light of the multifaceted nature of the conflict in Northern Ireland, Mitchell explains that, for Catholics, religion is primarily important in its social and institutional forms, whereas for many Protestants its theological and ideological dimensions are more pressing. Even those who no longer go to church tend to reproduce religious stereotypes of 'them and us'. Drawing on a range of unique interview material, this book traces how individuals and groups in Northern Ireland have absorbed religious types of cultural knowledge, belonging and morality, and how they reproduce these as they go about their daily lives. Despite recent religious and political changes, the author concludes that perceptions of religious difference help keep communities in Northern Ireland socially separate and often in conflict with one another.

All those interested in, and at times bewildered by the place of religion in Northern Ireland should not only read this book but bring it swiftly to the attention of their students. It will become an excellent teaching tool.' Grace Davie, University of Exeter, UK 'This will be a controversial book, for it considers an emotive topic and takes on some well-established arguments, but is likely to establish itself quickly as the definitive study of religion and politics in Northern Ireland. It is clear, lucid and extremely well written and has a refreshing blend of survey data and qualitative interviews. Mitchell establishes once and for all the role religion plays in Northern Ireland's conflict and it is not as simplistic or derivative as most people think'. John David Brewer, University of Aberdeen, UK 'This is a topic which is - in my view - going to become increasingly important both because of the importance of fundamentalist religion globally, and because of the continuation of conflict and crisis in Northern Ireland. This book should find a readership both in courses on the sociology (or politics) of religion in the contemporary world and in courses on Northern Ireland. I strongly recommend it'. Jennifer Todd, University College Dublin '...concisely synthesizes the vast literature on religion, society, and politics in Northern Ireland... Recommended. All academic levels/libraries.' Choice 'Overall this study is a valuable addition to discussion on the subject. It is a complex analysis of a difficult and controversial topic, more so as the author states it intends to challenge previous attitudes to the subject and she treads that particular path well.' Political Studies Review '... the book is very well-written and makes good use of current survey data in its always-reasonably-presented arguments. This book should be compulsory reading on any course on contemporary Northern Ireland.' British Journal of Sociology 'This is an excellent contribution to the study of the role religion plays in Northern Ireland, because of the clear writing style, the well-organized chapters and the pedagogical tools that introduce each chapter, this book would work well in an introductory course in the sociology of religion, religion and secularization or religion and conflict resolution... the book makes an important contribution towards an understanding of the complexity of the Northern Ireland conflict and the role religion plays in the creation of identity and boundaries.' International Journal of Public Theology '... a very useful entry-level book about religion in Northern Ireland.' Journal of Contemporary Religion : About the Author: Claire Mitchell lectures in the Department of Sociology and Social Policy in Queen's University Belfast. She is currently carrying out research on evangelicalism and politics and has published articles in Sociology, Ethnic and Racial Studies, on religion and politics in Northern Ireland.

Bottom edge of the board is a little marked. During the period 1880-1914 there was much discussion and unease about the rising number and more visible presence of women in the workforce. This book looks at the representation of working women and how that imagery was used to negotiate contradictions between the ideals associated with femininity and those allied to the notion of work. In the course of this study, the book participates in broader debates about the relationship between art and identity, and the potential of visual images to affect human relations. Book Description: The working women of Victorian and Edwardian Britain were fascinating but difficult subjects for artists, photographers, and illustrators. The cultural meanings of labour sat uncomfortably with conventional ideologies of femininity, and working women unsettled the boundaries between gender and class, selfhood and otherness. From paintings of servants in middle-class households, to exhibits of flower-makers on display for a shilling, the visual culture of women's labour offered a complex web of interior fantasy and exterior reality. The picture would become more challenging still when working women themselves began to use visual spectacle. In this first in-depth exploration of the representation of British working women, Kristina Huneault explores the rich meanings of female employment during a period of labour unrest, demands for women's enfranchisement, and mounting calls for social justice. In the course of her study she questions the investments of desire and the claims to power that reside in visual artifacts, drawing significant conclusions about the relationship between art and identity. : Review: 'Difficult Subjects will make a major contribution to the history of British visual culture, and particularly to the presently underdeveloped but significant history of representations of labour'. Tim Barringer, Department of History of Art, Yale University 'This excellent book shows a good understanding of what visual culture is and the theoretical framework that can be utilised to study it... this book is a fascinating examination of working women and their representations - by others and by themselves... I would recommend this book very highly for its interesting, if 'difficult' subjects, and the painstaking research made evident in its publication.' Gen Doy, The Art Book '... this fascinating and persuasive analysis of images of working women in the period's visual culture... an excellent contribution to our understanding of this particular period in British social and cultural history when women's lives were changed immeasurably.'

Small bump to the side foredge of the board.The Mexican novelist, Angeles Mastretta (b. 1949), has only recently received serious critical attention largely because her work has been seen as 'popular' and therefore inappropriate for academic study. This first major work to be published on Mastretta seeks to demonstrate the rich complexity and range of the author's fiction and essays. In the tradition of Post-Boom Latin American women's writing, Mastretta's texts are motivated by a desire to speak primarily of the silenced experiences and voices of women. Two of her novels, referential and testimonial in style, can be placed withinthe Mexican Revolutionary Novel tradition and explore the Revolutionary period and its consequences in the light of female experiences and perspectives. The hitherto unexplored themes of female sexuality and bodily erotics in Mastretta's texts are also considered in this volume. Her feminist works avoid facile simplifications: heterogeneous and dialogical, they interweave the historical and the fictional, the everyday and the fantastic. The originality of Mastretta's writing lies in its elusive postmodern ambiguities: shimmering surfaces are often interrupted by unexpected depths and proliferating meanings cannot be fully circumscribed by critical analysis.

An engaging biography of three generations of a prominent New England family. The Gardiners of Massachusetts examines late eighteenth-century American political and cultural history through the lives and careers of three men from successive generations of a prominent New England family. Silvester Gardiner, who established the family's fortunes in Boston, was a colonial surgeon, a dedicated Anglican, and a Loyalist. He received his medical training in Britain before settling in Massachusetts, where he became a giant in the drugs trade. In the mid-eighteenth century, as a director of the Kennebeck Company, he acquired vast landholdings in what became the state of Maine. At the end of the Revolution, when Silvester's estates were in jeopardy, his son John returned to his native New England after a long absence. Fully at ease within the British Atlantic Empire, John relied on his knowledge of imperial administration and on his connections at Whitehall and Westminster to enhance his career. He attended university in Glasgow during the Scottish Enlightenment and studied law at London's Inns of Court. His legal practice took him to Wales and the Caribbean island of St. Kitts. Returning to Boston in the 1780s, he emerged as a figure of considerable public controversy. John's son, J.S.J. Gardiner, was an Episcopal priest and a leader of Boston's Federalist literati. As Milford describes the careers of these three men, he contends that the Gardiners exemplified the ambitions of the cosmopolitan middle class throughout the British Empire and English-speaking Atlantic world during the decades just before and after the American Revolution. He also uses this history to intervene in the long-running scholarly debate over the relative influence of liberalism and republicanism in the political culture of the early republic. The Gardiners' ambitions, Milford suggests, demonstrate a deep allegiance to the liberal vocabulary of private gains and public goodÑa vocabulary in which Americans had been schooled by their imperial engagements. Because of this attachment to liberalism, the disintegration of British authority in the colonies presented an acute dilemma for those New Englanders for whom the British Empire had offered an expanding array of professional opportunities. "Through the Gardiner family, Milford adds dimension to recent studies that explore the English influence on American political culture." ÑThe Journal of American History "A deftly written account of three generations of the Gardiner family during the Revolutionary era. Men of middle rankÑsuccessively a physician turned land speculator and loyalist, a lawyer in Britain's Atlantic world, and an Episcopalian minister in BostonÑthey grappled with, and their careers illustrate, the perplexities of Anglo-American culture, society, and politics as Britain and America went separate ways."ÑBernard Bailyn, Harvard University "The Gardiners of Massachusetts is a most welcome volume. T.A. Milford has provided a penetrating portrait of an important family whose triumphs and anxieties shed light on the tortured transition from province to commonwealth in the late 18th century. This innovative and deeply researched book reflects wisely on the inheritances that unite and divide generations, and illustrates the ways that urban sophisticates navigated rapidly shifting winds of fortune during a turbulent era. An exciting family history that goes well beyond the conventions of the genre."ÑTed Widmer, Washington College The Table of Contents of this book is as follows: Acknowledgments ¥ Prospect ¥ SILVESTER - Interest and Empire ¥ JOHN - A Worldly Education ¥ The Revolution of Opportunities ¥ Lawyers and Leadership ¥ The Independent Province ¥ J.S.J. ¥ Letters and Distinction ¥ Retrospect ¥ Notes ¥ Bibliography ¥ Index. T. A. Milfsord grew up in Michigan and took his baccalaureate and doctoral degrees from Duke and Harvard. He lives in Brooklyn and is an assistant professor of history at St. John's University. "Milford seems equally at homes in Wales, St. Kitts, Scotland, London, or Boston. His grasp the regional history for each of these areas is impressive. One sees the various components of the British Atlantic Empire, and how people and influences traversed it... Milford's book leaves one with a deeper appreciation of the merchant and professional bourgeoisie who were emerging in the eighteenth century."ÑNew England Quarterly ISBN: 1584655046., University of New Hampshire Press / University Press of New England: 2005, UK: Routledge, 1995. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 0.8 x 6.5 x 9.8 inches. Book Description A woman of extraordinary energy, talent and versatility. Elizabeth Robins was an actress who popularised Ibsen on the British stage, a prolific and popular writer of novels and non-fiction, and an Edwardian suffragette. Her extensive circle of friends included Florence Bell, Henry James, John Masefield and William Archer. She worked with the Pankhursts and knew the Woolfs. Through examining the life and work of this vivid and transatlantic figure born during the American Civil War yet surviving into the England of the 1950s, Angela John raises questions about the shaping of historical identities. Situating Elizabeth Robins's achievement in the context of the British and American cultural history of the period, this is a book which will attract historians, teachers and students of theatre studies and all those fascinated by biography. Editorial Reviews From Library Journal A stage actress in America and London, Robins retired from the theater at age 40 and dedicated her life to writing and the woman suffrage movement. Johns, an academic, resurrects Robins's rich life and work, which included 14 novels as well as books on feminism. Copyright 1995 Reed Business Information, Inc.

The book presents, for the first time, a hitherto unknown account of India as given by the Siamese (Thai).An attempt has been made to delineate the rare insights in Indian history as gleaned in course of extensive travels of the Siamese delegation in India under the leadership of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) in 1872. In the first part of the monograph, ten independent chapters offer an in-depth critical study of the Siamese perception of post-mutiny India. The global contexts and the unprecedented nature of this journey are focused in the first two chapters. The following chapter presents a micro-history of India for forty-seven days in 1872 when the Siamese delegation visited seven cities of India. Indian and British impressions about the Siamese King, diplomatic nuances, the war game in Delhi, the royal Siamese researches on 1857, encounters with Buddhist India form the subjects of successive chapters. Chapter 9 probes into the intellectual history of India and Thailand, making an attempt to link the Young Bengal movement with the Young Siam. In the concluding chapter, the effects of Indian journey on Siam have been briefly discussed. In the second part, twelve separate sections provide contemporary newspaper materials and archival sources including Major Sladen`s Report which enable the readers to visualise the significance and magnitude of Siamese perception of India. The monograph is an indispensable work for every one interested in the study of nineteenth century Indian history, society, religious and cultural conditions and intellectual horizons. It also sheds new light on the beginnings of Indo Thai diplomatic and cultural relations. Contents:- Preface I. THE SIAMESE PERCEPTION OF POST-MUTINY INDIA : 1.

When did churches start to appear more empty than full - and why? The very physicality of largely empty churches and chapels in Britain plays a powerful role in popular perceptions of 'religion'. Empty churches are frequently cited in the media as evidence of large scale religious decline. The 'Empty' Church Revisited presents a systematic account of British churchgoing patterns over the last two hundred years, uncovering the factors and the statistics behind the considerable process of decline in church attendence. Dispelling as myth the commonly held views that the process of secularization in British culture has led to the decline in churchgoing and resulted in the predominantly empty churches of today, Gill points to physical factors, economics and issues of social space to shed new light on the origins of empty churches. This thoroughly updated edition of Robin Gill's earlier work, The Myth of the Empty Church, presents new data throughout to explore afresh the paradox of church building activity in a context of decline, the patterns of urbanisation followed by sub-urbanisation affecting churches, changes in patterns of worship, and changes within the sociology of religion in the last decade. Contents: Preface; Introduction; The data; Rural churchgoing decline; Glan-Ilyn: a rural case study; Urban churchgoing decline; General increase: 1821 to 1851; Free Church increase and Anglican decline: 1851 to the 1880s; General decline: 1880s to 1919; Continuing decline: 1920s to 2000; York: an urban case study; The future of the churches; Tables; Index. Book Description: This thoroughly updated edition of Gill's earlier work, "The Myth of the Empty Church", presents new data throughout to explore afresh the paradox of church building activity in a context of decline, the patterns of urbanization followed by sub-urbanization affecting churches, changes in patterns of worship, and changes within the sociology of religion since the 1990s. : Review: 'This is a necessary text and classic intervention in debates over secularisation, forcing us to revise many assumptions, as well as showing the importance of the economics of over-provision.' David Martin, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, London School of Economics 'This is the second edition of The Myth of the Empty Church, a seminal work from 1993 and long out of print. While unchanged in structure, it is no mere reprint, incorporating additional research by Gill and taking account of recent contributions to the secondary literature... this remains an impressive piece of empirically grounded scholarship, which has rightly established itself as a modern classic of English religion.' Theology 'This is a fascinating work richly littered with questions for the historical researcher... But it will also prove thought-provoking for contemporary Church leaders...' Modern Believing Reviews of the first edition - 'Myth of the Empty Church': 'Robin Gill is among the handful of theologians who are truly adept in the generation and use of social science data. Gill is the best in his cadre.' The Journal of Religion 'Professor Gill's new study of churchgoing statistics and patterns ought to be on the reading list of every theological college and studied by all those who want to arrest the pattern of decline. Raising clergy morale would contribute greatly to improving the situation. Gill's research and lucid exposition of its results have done a service to all. It ought to be the starting point for any future proposals made by the mainstream churches for church growth in the years to come.' The Church of England Newspaper 'Robin Gill argues...that there are too few Christians in Britain partly because there are far too many churches. Professor Gill argues that the ideological forces of secularisation and commercialism which are conventionally supposed to explain the decline of religious observance in England, are much greater in North America. (His) remedies involve a professionalisation of the Church of England's response.' The Independent 'This is a most striking study. Dr Gill has managed to dig up an impressive array of statistics about church attendances at different points during the period.' The Expository Times 'Gill has identified an important cause of church decline, and the book is a valuable contribution to a growing historical debate.' History 'Gill's argument is composed of a number of intricately interwoven threads, one being that decline in church attendance was, in a significant number of instances, preceded by empty churches...Gill's final chapter offers a number of suggestions as to how the analysis that he has presented points to ways in which the Church of England might try to get round the structural and economic mess in which it currently finds itself.' The Times Education Supplement 'The data that are presented repay careful attention and we must be grateful for the energy and persistence whihc have been shown. The author wishes his conclusions to be absorbed by the churches today, since he is clear that there is nothing inevitable about the continuing decline in church attendance. This stimulating and challengingly polemical book is addressing a variety of audiences.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'This book promises the biggest shake up in our understanding of why churches are empty for thirty years. It is a book which will demand our attention, whether we like it or not.'

During the 1990s, Asian pop artists began entering the mainstream of the British music industry for the first time. Bands such as Black Star Liner, Cornershop, Fun Da Mental and Voodoo Queens, led those within and without the industry to start asking questions such as what did it mean to be Asian? How did the bands' Asian background affect their music? What did their music say about Asians in Britain? In this book, Rehan Hyder draws on in-depth interviews with musicians from these bands and with critics and record producers, to examine the pressures associated with making music as a young Asian in today's multi-ethnic Britain. As the book reveals, these musicians wish to convey an authentic sense of creativity in their music, while at the same time wanting to assert a positive ethnic identity. Hyder explores these two impulses against the backdrop of a music industry and a society at large that hold a range of confining stereotypes about what it means to be Asian. The experiences of these bands add considerably to the wider debate about the nature of identity in the contemporary world. Contents: Introduction; Negotiating difference: ethnicity and identity in contemporary Britain; Music, culture and identity; Asian influences on pop and rock in the UK; Marketing the exotic: Asian bands and the novelty effect; Politics or pleasure? Asianness and the burden of representation; Old and new identities: music, ethnicity and syncretism; Conclusion: Then and now: Asian bands in the 21st century; Appendices; Discography; Bibliography; Index. Book Description: Introduction; Negotiating difference: ethnicity and identity in contemporary Britain; Music, culture and identity; Asian influences on pop and rock in the UK; Marketing the exotic: Asian bands and the novelty effect; Politics or pleasure? Asianess and the burden of representation; Old and new identities: music, ethnicity and. : Review: Received the only Special Mention in the 2005 IASPM Book Award 'Read this book as a smartly conceived and adroitly completed rescue mission. Of all Britain's musical artists, Asian bands are the most ensnared and assaulted by journalistic, academic and political cliches. Rehan Hyder cuts his way through all this verbiage to get to the musicians themselves. In Brimful of Asia music is used to make sense of complicated lives and lives are examined to make sense of complicated music. An essential book for cultural and popular music studies alike.' Simon Frith, University of Stirling 'Brimful of Asia is filled to the brim with insight, analysis, and interpretation of some of the most important music being made in the world today. With deft mastery over a broad range of ideas and issues, Rehan Hyder locates the emergence of artists of Asian ancestry on the popular music charts in Britain as part of the global shake-up that is dramatically altering relationships between culture and place in many different ways all around the world. Brimful of Asia has much to say about artists, audiences, and artistry in a tumultuous time of transformation and change.' George Lipsitz, University of California, San Diego; author of Dangerous Crossroads 'I found this an absolutely fascinating book, well-written and well-referenced to writers in the field - not simply the UK. The first section alone (chapters 1-4) provides some essential thinking about identity politics that would be useful to anyone studying ethnicities. Clearly its focus is on the UK and this may suggest that its appeal is limited. However, I would suggest that the issues confronted and discussed are relevant to a much wider-audience as they provide a thoughtful interrogation of the problems confronting young Asian bands that can be usefully applied to comparable research projects. In this case, it is not so much the substance (which is UK-based) but the approach and issues arising that will be useful to scholars and researchers.' Excerpt taken from the jury's report for the 2005 IASPM Book Award , in which the only Special Mention went to Rehan Hyder's 'Brimful of Asia'. '... this excellent book should become one of the standard texts on British popular musicianship at the end of the twentieth century.' Popular Music 'This [...] full-length study will undoubtedly be welcomed by Western academia...'

What was British imperialism and was it an important element of modern globalization? Were economic, political or military factors paramount in imperial expansion? Do post-colonial theories assist or mislead historians? How have histories of imperialism changed, and are current analyses satisfactory? Robert Johnson's invaluable guide offers a succint, easy-to-follow introduction to the key issues and historiography of British imperialism from its origins to the conversion to the Commonwealth. British Imperialism - provides concise introductions to key questions and debates - takes a question-based approach to analysis of the material - offers an assessment of the significance of economic, military and political factors in imperial expansion and decolonization - presents critical appraisals of the most recent controversies including neo-colonialism, cultural imperialism, post-colonial theory, and gender and imperialism - includes a useful guide to further reading Using vivid examples, Johnson clearly explains the nature of British imperialism and enables the reader to understand the causes, course and immediate consequences of the British-colonial encounter on a world-wide scale. His book is an essential starting point for all those new to the subject and a helpful introduction to more recent debates. Book Description: What was British imperialism and was it an important element of modern globalization? Were economic, political or military factors paramount in imperial expansion? Do post-colonial theories assist or mislead historians? How have histories of imperialism changed, and are current analyses satisfactory?: Robert Johnson's invaluable guide offers a succint, easy-to-follow introduction to the key issues and historiography of British imperialism from its origins to the conversion to the Commonwealth. : British Imperialism: - provides concise introductions to key questions and debates: - takes a question-based approach to analysis of the material: - offers an assessment of the significance of economic, military and political factors in imperial expansion and decolonization: - presents critical appraisals of the most recent controversies including neo-colonialism, cultural imperialism, post-colonial theory, and gender and imperialism: - includes a useful guide to further reading: Using vivid examples, Johnson clearly explains the nature of British imperialism and enables the reader to understand the causes, course and immediate consequences of the British-colonial encounter on a world-wide scale. His book is an essential starting point for all those new to the subject and a helpful introduction to more recent debates. : Review: 'The focus on debates in imperial history (rather than the usual narrative) will make this useful.' - Zoë Laidlaw, University of Sheffield: 'Very useful - and concise - overview.' - Dr M. Farr, University of Newcastle: '...a crisp and thoughtful analysis...his book will be read with profit...' - D.George Boyce, The Journal of Military History: '...a crisp and thoughtful analysis...his book will be read with profit...' - D. George Boyce, The Journal of Military History : From the Author: This book covers both the history of the British Empire in a concise form, and also the key controversies of the subject. Strictly speaking, we should refer to the 'histories' of the British Empire since there were such a variety of experiences and agendas at work, and there have been no shortage of controversies since its advent - from gendered politics to questions of identity, resistance and collaboration. This book takes each theme as a question and outlines the approach taken by scholars, the breakdown of the problem itself, and then weaves discussion into the whole. As the author, I have tried to pack the empire and its history into 200 or so pages, with chronology, and comprehensive bibliography at the end. The book is designed to appeal to hard-pressed students who need to acquire the key information, but also to experienced scholars who want to contextualise their own research. Clearly a book of this size cannot cover everything, but it does give a flavour of what imperialism was - to its practictioners as well as those on the receiving end - the economics of empire, the way the empire 'worked', the motives and effects of colonisation, coercion and co-operation, post-colonialism and post-colonial studies, race and racism, gender, the world wars, the challenge of nationalism and decolonisation, and the cultural legacy of the empire.: I sincerely hope you will enjoy the book and find it useful in equal measure.

This lively and accessible study of media and discourse combines theoretical reflection with empirical engagement, and brings together insights from a range of disciplines. Within media and cultural studies, the study of media texts is dominated by an exclusive focus on representation. This book adds long overdue attention to social interaction. The book is divided into two sections. The first outlines key theoretical issues and concepts, including informalisation, genre hybridisation, positioning, dialogism and discourse. The second is a sustained interrogation of social interaction in and around media. Re-examining issues of representation and interaction, it critically assesses work on the para-social and broadcast sociability, then explores distinct sites of interaction: production communities, audience communities and 'interactivity' with audiences. Key features * The book is rich with fascinating examples involving British and US media, including radio, television, magazines and newspapers and their Internet spin-offs. * It brings together insights from conversation analysis, critical discourse analysis, cultural studies and media anthropology. * It is key reading for advanced undergraduates and postgraduates doing media studies, communication and cultural studies and journalism studies., Abingdon: Routedge -Taylor & Francis Group in Co-Operation with The Center for Black Diaspora, DePaul University, 2006. pp 141 - 294.

A companion to UEP's Grand-Guignol: The French Theatre of Horror (now in its third reprint). A genre that has left more of a mark on British and American culture than we may imagine (Gothic Studies). London's Grand Guignol was established in the early 1920s at the Little Theatre in the West End. It was a high-profile venture that enjoyed popular success as much as critical controversy. On its side were some of the finest actors on the English stage, in the shape of Sybil Thorndike and Lewis Casson, and a team of extremely able writers, including Noel Coward. London's Grand Guignol and the Theatre of Horror considers the importance and influence of the English Grand Guignol within its social, cultural and historical contexts. It also presents a selection of ten remakarble English-language Grand Guignol plays, some of which were banned by the Lord Chamberlain, the censor of the day, and have never been published or publicly performed. Among the plays in the book is a previously unpublished work by Noel Coward, The Better Half, first performed at the Little Theatre in 1922. The reviewer in the journal Gothic Studies wrote, of the authors' previous book: having recently taught a module on Grand Guignol with third year drama students, it is also worth noting that this book captured their imaginations in a way that few other set texts seem to manage., London: School of Oriental and African Studies, 1994. 595-901pp, moderate creasing to front cover, overall neat clean copy. Articles include: 'America's China Policy in the Age of the Finance Minister: Clinton Ends Linkage' by David M. Lampton, 'Human Rights in Chinese Foreign Policy' by Andrew J.

Paperback. New. Paperback. 252 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.7in.Bringing a fresh approach to the field, this study shows that poems by women do not always subvert the mainstream, the media, and the marketplace. With explorations of Hollywood films, household advertising, childrens books, mass magazines, and tabloid journalism as well as the poetry of H. D. , Stevie Smith, Gwendolyn Brooks, Sylvia Plath, Ai, and Carol Ann Duffy, Marsha Bryant assesses the counterintuitive innovations that these poets fashion through popular culture. Bridging feminist and cultural studies, this book analyzes the ways in which British and American women poets often operate as cultural insiders, consuming music, movies, and magazines through poems that do not always conform to appropriation or critique.
