Japan : the precarious future( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On March 11, 2011, a 9.0 earthquake off Japan's northeast coast triggered a tsunami that killed more than 20,000 people, displaced 600,000, and caused billions of dollars in damage as well as a nuclear meltdown of three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant. Japan, the world's third largest economy, was already grappling with recovery from both its own economic recession of the 1990s and the global recession following the US-driven financial crisis of 2008 when the disaster hit, changing its fortunes yet again. This small, populous Asian nation--once thought to be a contender for the role of the world's number one power--now faces a world of uncertainty. Japan's economy has shrunk, China has challenged its borders, and it faces perilous demographic adjustments from decreased fertility and an aging populace, with the country's population expected to drop to less than 100 million by 2048. In Japan: The Precarious Future, a group of distinguished scholars of Japanese economics, politics, law, and society examine the various roads that might lie ahead. Will Japan face a continued erosion of global economic and political power, particularly as China's outlook improves exponentially? Or will it find a way to protect its status as an important player in global affairs? Contributors explore issues such as national security, political leadership, manufacturing prowess, diplomacy, population decline, and gender equality in politics and the workforce, all in an effort to chart the possible futures for Japan. Both a roadmap for change and a look at how Japan arrived at its present situation, this collection of thought-provoking analyses will be essential for understanding the current landscape and future prospects of this world power

Mahābhārata by Vyāsa( Book )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In one of the most famous passages in Maha·bharata, Dur·yodhana, the heroic but flawed king of the Kauravas, meets his end when he is dishonorably defeated in battle by his arch-enemy, Bhima. Framing a fascinating account of the sacred sites along the river Sarasvati, the duel poignantly portrays the downfall of a once great hero in the face of a new order governed by Krishna, in which the warrior code is brushed aside in order to ensure the predestined triumph of the Pandavas."--Publisher's website
Surveillance cinema by Catherine Zimmer( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Paris, a static video camera keeps watch on a bourgeois home. In Portland, a webcam documents the torture and murder of kidnap victims. And in clandestine intelligence offices around the world, satellite technologies relentlessly pursue the targets of global conspiracies. Such plots represent only a fraction of the surveillance narratives that have become commonplace in recent cinema. Catherine Zimmer examines how technology and ideology have come together in cinematic form to play a functional role in the politics of surveillance. Drawing on the growing field of surveillance studies and the politics of contemporary monitoring practices, she demonstrates that screen narrative has served to organize political, racial, affective, and even material formations around and through surveillance. She considers how popular culture forms are intertwined with the current political landscape in which the imagery of anxiety, suspicion, war, and torture has become part of daily life. From Enemy of the State and The Bourne Series to Saw, Caché and Zero Dark Thirty, Surveillance Cinema explores in detail the narrative tropes and stylistic practices that characterize contemporary films and television series about surveillance"--The publisher
Mahābhārata by Vyāsa( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second volume of the "Preparations for War" (Udyogaparvan) seals the fate of the Pándavas and Kurus. The failure of diplomacy ensures war is now inevitable, and with this realisation come dramatic arguments, miracles and temptations. This book is the turning point of the entire "Maha·bhárata" epic. The Pándavas' exile is complete and all uncertainty regarding their future is now gone. The importance of the debate to decide their fate is such that even the celestial sages gather to watch as Krishna attempts to save the world from annihilation. But his attempts are to no avail. Duryódhana and Karna vainly plot to take Krishna prisoner, and in return Krishna reveals his magnificent majesty in a blinding vision of divinity. As peace looks increasingly impossible both sides amass forces and organise their troops. Ambassadors are replaced with petty traders of insults and the tone becomes increasingly martial. Karna's prophetic dream and Bhishma's explanation of his fate with Shikhándin herald the outcome of the battles to come, and by the close of "Preparations for War" both opposing armies are encamped and ready to begin battle". --Résumé de l'éditeur

Net.wars by Wendy Grossman( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Who will rule cyberspace? And why should people care? Recently stories have appeared in a variety of news media, from the sensational to the staid, that portray the Internet as full of pornography, pedophilia, recipes for making bombs, lewd and lawless behavior, and copyright violators. And, for politicians eager for votes, or to people who have never strolled the electronic byways, regulating the Net seems as logical and sensible as making your kids wear seat belts. Forget freedom of speech: children can read this stuff. From the point of view of those on the Net, mass-media's representation of pornography on the Internet grossly overestimates the amount that is actually available, and these stories are based on studies that are at best flawed and at worst fraudulent. To netizens, the panic over the electronic availability of bomb-making recipes and other potentially dangerous material is groundless: the same material is readily available in public libraries. Out on the Net, it seems outrageous that people who have never really experienced it are in a position to regulate it. How then, should the lines be drawn in the grey area between cyberspace and the physical world? In net.wars, Wendy Grossman, a journalist who has covered the Net since 1992 for major publications such as Wired, The Guardian, and The Telegraph, assesses the battles that will define the future of this new venue. From the Church of Scientology's raids on Net users to netizens attempts to overthrow both the Communications Decency Act and the restrictions on the export of strong encryption, net.wars explains the issues and the background behind the headlines. Among the issues covered are net scams, class divisions on the net, privacy issues, the Communications Decency Act, women online, pornography, hackers and the computer underground, net criminals and sociopaths, and more"--Publisher description

No escape : freedom of speech and the paradox of rights by Paul A Passavant( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"No Escape argues that this is exactly the case, beginning with the observation that, paradoxical as it might seem, liberalism and nationalism have historically coincided in the United States. No Escape proves that liberal government and nationalism can mutually reinforce each other, taking as its example a preeminent and seemingly universal liberal legal right, freedom of speech, and illustrating how it can function in a way that actually reproduces nationally exclusive conditions of power."--Jacket
