Ottoman tulips, Ottoman coffee : leisure and lifestyle in the eighteenth century ( file )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Tulips and coffee are defining cultural products of the Ottoman eighteenth century, along with their related institutions of palace and coffeehouse. These cultural products hold multiple meanings in the history and historiography of the period. They are associated with the daily life of common people and their sociabilities, on the one hand, and with the Ottoman court and imperial legitimacy, on the other. 'Ottoman Tulips, Ottoman Coffee' offers a critical exploration of definitive cultural phenomena of the Ottoman eighteenth century, such as, the coffee house, the printing press, imperial architecture and royal pageantry and festivals. Chapters explore subjects ranging from the changing forms of imperial ritual in Ottoman circumcision celebrations, to the history of the construction of the famed palace of Saadabad, to the reputedly failed project of the first Ottoman printing press. In doing so, the book reassesses the history and unravels the historiography of the so-called 'Tulip Period'. Further, the book also reconsiders the coffeehouse to see it as a multifunctional space, which was used variously for such diverse means and ends as a rebel headquarters, a Sufi lodge, police station and racketeering office. Most importantly this book attempts to transcend current debates about the purported Ottoman eighteenth century cultural and political decline and the twin teleologies of Westernization and modernization. It views the Ottoman Empire in its natural geography of Eurasia and sees its interactions as significantly with the East as much as with the West
The cult of the Duce : Mussolini and the Italians ( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The cult of the Duce is the first book to explore systematically the personality cult of the Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. It examines the factors which informed the cult and looks in detail at its many manifestations in the visual arts, architecture, political spectacle and the media. The conviction that Mussolini was an exceptional individual first became dogma among Fascists and then was communicated to the people at large. Intellectuals and artists helped fashion the idea of him as a new Caesar while the modern media of press, photography, cinema and radio aggrandised his every public

The culture of controversy : religious arguments in Scotland, 1660-1714 by Alasdair Raffe( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The Culture of Controversy' investigates arguments about religion in Scotland from the Restoration to the death of Queen Anne and outlines a new model for thinking about collective disagreement in seventeenth- and eighteenth-century societies. Rejecting teleological concepts of the 'public sphere', the book instead analyses religious debates in terms of a distinctively early modern 'culture of controversy'. This culture was less rational and less urbanised than the public sphere. Traditional means of communication such as preaching and manuscript circulation were more important than newspapers and coffeehouses. As well as verbal forms of discourse, controversial culture was characterised by actions, rituals and gestures. People from all social ranks and all regions of Scotland were involved in religious arguments, but popular participation remained of questionable legitimacy. Through its detailed and innovative examination of the arguments raging between and within Scotland's main religious groups, the presbyterians and episcopalians, over such issues as Church government, state oaths and nonconformity, 'The Culture of Controversy' reveals hitherto unexamined debates about religious enthusiasm, worship and clerical hypocrisy. It also illustrates the changing nature of the fault line between the presbyterians and episcopalians and contextualises the emerging issues of religious toleration and articulate irreligion. Illuminating the development and character of Scottish Protestantism, 'The Culture of Controversy' proposes new ways of understanding religion and politics in late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century Scotland and will be particularly valuable to all those with an interest in early modern British history. Alasdair Raffe is Lecturer in History at Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne

Philosophers of our times by Ted Honderich( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Eighteen of the world's most eminent philosophers of recent years tackle central questions of philosophy in this collection of the prestigious annual lectures given at the Royal Institute of Philosophy in London. The line-up of authors is stellar: Simon Blackburn, Ned Block, Tyler Burge, David Chalmers, Noam Chomsky, Jerry Fodor, Jurgen Habermas, Anthony Kenny, Christine Korsgaard, John McDowell, Alasdair MacIntyre, Thomas Nagel, Derek Parfit, T. M. Scanlon, John Searle, Sir Peter Strawson, Bernard Williams, and Mary Warnock. There are six pieces on questions to do with mind, perception, and action; four on reason and morality; six range over freedom, identity, religion, and politics; and the last two take a step back to look at philosophy itself and how it works. The best way to learn about philosophy is to read philosophy at its best: that is what this fascinating anthology offers
Männlichkeit zwischen Gefühl und Revolution Eine Emotionsgeschichte der bundesdeutschen 68er-Bewegung by Stefanie Pilzweger( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Wie sind Politik, Emotionen und Geschlecht miteinander verflochten? Stefanie Pilzweger erzählt die Geschichte der bundesdeutschen 68er-Bewegung als 'Gefühlsgeschichte' und zeigt so, dass Emotionen das Handeln der politischen Aktivisten motivierten und den historischen Verlauf der sozialen Bewegung maßgeblich prägten. Sie analysiert die Studentenbewegung als eine männlich codierte Protest- und Gefühlskultur: Da männliche Akteure das zeitgenössische Protestmilieu zahlenmäßig und inhaltlich dominierten, konnten sich auch 'maskuline' Gefühlsregeln als konstitutiv für den kollektiven Emotionshaushalt durchsetzen.

Mediated discourse : the nexus of practice by Ronald Scollon( file )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Mediated Discourse: The Nexus of Practice sets out a discursive theory of human action. Language and action are intimately related. The difficult question to answer is how they are related. Mediated Discourse Theory looks into social relationships to see how the use of language is both a form of action in itself and is also indirectly related to all other forms of human action. Through the empirical study of a one year old child learning to exchange objects with caregivers, Scollon challenges the commonly held claim that all practices are represented in discourse and that all discourse has the function of structuring practice."--Jacket

Gedachte Stadt - Gebaute Stadt Urbanität in der deutsch-deutschen Systemkonkurrenz 1945-1990 by Institut für Vergleichende Städtegeschichte( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in German and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Vier Jahrzehnte lang waren die Bundesrepublik Deutschland und die DDR einander in höchst ambivalenter Weise verbunden, denn beide Halbnationen waren zugleich Vorposten in der Systemkonkurrenz des Kalten Krieges. Im deutsch-deutschen Städtebau - in der geplanten wie in der gebauten Stadt – realisierten sich sowohl die unterschiedlichen politischen Ordnungsvorstellungen wie auch die verbindenden architektonischen Traditionen besonders markant. Der Band leuchtet dieses Spannungsfeld umfassend aus: Er analysiert die leitenden Paradigmen des Städtebaus, fragt nach der symbolischen Rolle der Regierungssitze in Bonn und Ost-Berlin und zeigt, welche Funktion die Stadt als Modell und Imageträger im Systemwettstreit übernahm
Kafka : a very short introduction by Ritchie Robertson( file )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
"Kafka's fiction vividly evokes bizarre situations: a commercial traveller is turned into an insect, a banker is arrested by a mysterious court, and a singing mouse becomes the heroine of her nation. Attending both to Kafka's crisis-ridden life and to the subtleties of his art, Ritchie Robertson shows how his work explores such characteristically modern themes as the place of the body in culture, the power of institutions over people, and the possibility of religion after Nietzsche had proclaimed 'the death of God'. This up-to-date and accessible portrait of a fascinating author shows us ways to read and make sense of his perplexing and absorbing work."--Jacket
