Truth, politics, and universal human rights by Janet Holl Madigan( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book uses the concept of universal human rights to explore the relationship between the individual, society, and truth. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was meant to provide a moral standard for judging the state's treatment of the individual, but some still contend that the principles expressed therein are not universal, but culturally relative. To answer the question of whether we can say something universally true about human beings while lacking the philosophical means to do so coherently, the author explores the changing relationship between truth and politics from Plato to Locke."--Jacket
Media in Egypt and Tunisia : from control to transition? by Edward Webb( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A year after popular uprisings overthrew dictators in Egypt and Tunisia, a former diplomat and press officer travelled to Cairo and Tunis to interview local journalists and learn about both their experiences under the previous regimes and how they were navigating the political transitions. Based on these conversations, the resulting study explains the shifting red lines under the Mubarak and Ben Ali regimes, examining how these lines were enforced and how the regimes manipulated media to manufacture popular acquiescence or apathy. A map emerges of an institutional and cultural media landscape that presents challenges to establishing the genuine public service media both countries need in order to thrive as democracies

Moby-Dick and Melville's anti-slavery allegory by Brian R Pellar( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book unfurls and examines the anti-slavery allegory at the subtextual core of Herman Melville's famed novel, Moby-Dick. Brian Pellar points to symbols and allusions in the novel such as the albinism of the famed whale, the "Ship of State" motif, Calhoun's "cords," the equator, Jonah, Narcissus, St. Paul, and Thomas Hobbe's Leviathan. The work contextualizes these devices within a historical discussion of the Compromise of 1850 and subsequently strengthened Fugitive Slave Laws. Drawing on a rich variety of sources such as unpublished papers, letters, reviews, and family memorabilia, the chapters discuss the significance of these laws within Melville's own life. After clarifying the hidden allegory interconnecting black slaves and black whales, this book carefully sheds the layers of a hidden meaning that will be too convincing to ignore for future readings: Moby-Dick is ultimately a novel that is intimately connected with questions of race, slavery, and the state

Nineteenth-century poetry and liberal thought : forms of freedom by Anna Barton( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the relationship between nineteenth-century poetry and liberal philosophy. It carries out a reassessment of the aesthetic possibilities of liberalism and it considers the variety of ways that poetry by William Wordsworth, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Arthur Hugh Clough, George Meredith, Robert Browning, Matthew Arnold and Algernon Charles Swinburne responds to and participates in urgent philosophical, social and political debates about liberty and the rule of law. It provides an account of poetry's intervention into four different sites where liberalism has a stake: the self, the university, married life and the nation state and it seeks to assert the peculiar capacity of poetry to articulate liberal concerns, proposing poetic language as a means of liberal enquiry

Grassroots advocacy and health care reform : the HCAN campaign in Pennsylvania by Marc Stier( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grassroots Advocacy and Health Care Reform places a detailed account of how the Health Care for America Now campaign in Pennsylvania carried out contemporary issue advocacy in the context of an understanding of American politics. Grassroots Advocacy and Health Care Reform shows how grassroots issue advocacy is conducted today by telling the story of Health Care for America Now's campaign in Pennsylvania in support of the Affordable Care Act. As both the director of the HCAN PA campaign and a former professor of political theory, Stier brings a unique perspective to the analysis of how HCAN Pennsylvania implemented a national campaign in the context of contemporary political science. Grassroots Advocacy and Health Care Reform provides valuable insights for historians, political scientists, organizers, and citizens alike about how advocates can best build campaigns to affect legislative change
Security threats and public perception : digital Russia and the Ukraine crisis by Elizaveta Gaufman( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The author examines how enemy images are manufactured, threats magnified, stereotypes revived, memories implanted and fears harnessed. It looks at the legacy of the Soviet Union in shaping discussions ranging from the Ukraine crisis to the Pussy Riot trial, and explores the complex inter-relation between enemy images at the governmental level and their articulation by the general public. By drawing on the fields of international relations, memory studies, visual studies, and big data, this book addresses the question of why securitization succeeds -- and why it fails." -- Back cover
Containing trauma : nursing work in the First World War by Christine E Hallett( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Who were the military nurses of the Great War, and what did they really do? In this lucid and cogently argued book, Christine Hallett explores the nature of the practices developed by nurses and their volunteer-assistants during the First World War. She argues that nurses found meaning in their complex and stressful work by identifying it as a process of 'containing trauma'. Beginning with a discussion of the current literature on the social and cultural position of nurses at the outbreak of the war, and on their importance to the war effort, the book explores a range of nursing scenarios and practices, examining the physical, emotional and spiritual care and support these women offered to their patients. Broad in its scope and detailed in its research, the book analyses the work of nurses from Britain, Australia. New Zealand, Canada, South Africa and the United States of America. It draws on highly personal writing, using letters and diaries drawn from archives and libraries throughout the world alongside published diaries and semi-fictional accounts. This wide-ranging study explores a range of treatment scenarios, from the Western and Eastern Fronts to the Eastern Mediterranean, Mesopotamia and India, and considers both the efforts of nurses to provide physical, emotional and moral containment to their patients. and the work they did to maintain their own physical and emotional integrity."--Page 4 of cover

Baroque, Venice, theatre, philosophy by Will Daddario( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book theorizes the baroque as neither a time period nor an artistic style but as a collection of bodily practices developed from clashes between governmental discipline and artistic excess, moving between the dramaturgy of Jesuit spiritual exercises, the political theatre-making of Angelo Beolco (aka Ruzzante), and the civic governance of the Venetian Republic at a time of great tumult. The manuscript assembles plays seldom read or viewed by English-speaking audiences, archival materials from three Venetian archives, and several secondary sources on baroque, Renaissance, and early modern epistemology in order to forward and argument for understanding the baroque as a gathering of social practices. Such a rethinking of the baroque aims to complement the already lively studies of neo-baroque aesthetics and ethics emerging in contemporary scholarship on (for example) Latin American political art

Accounting, capitalism and the revealed religions : a study of Christianity, Judaism and Islam by Vassili Joannidès( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyses the bearing of global monotheistic faiths towards the philosophy and practice of record keeping and accounting throughout history. The author offers a comprehensive discussion of the literal and figurative processes of taking account and ascribing accountability that link religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Islam. Chapters address theology and accounting in tandem with social behaviours to demonstrate how auditing and calculating customs permeate practising religions. This book first highlights how the four monotheisms have viewed and incorporated accounting historically, and then looks forward to the accounting debates, technologies and traditions in today's world that derive from these religious customs. Drawing heavily on the writings of Max Weber and Werner Sombart, the author demonstrates that accounting and capitalism have religious roots far beyond the Protestant ethic
