The geopolitics of South Asia : from early empires to the nuclear age by Graham Chapman( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anyone who is planning on carrying out research in South Asia or indeed anyone who simply wishes to understand more about this cultural heartland should read this book.

Environmentalism and the mass media : the North--South divide by Graham Chapman( Book )

14 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The mass media in different countries reflects dominant concerns of contemporary societies. Ideas of "environmentalism" are often broad and imprecise, holding neither meaning or currency. This volume discusses the diverse ideas of "environmentalism", the way environmental ideas circulate, and public reaction to environmental concerns conveyed by the media. Drawing on interviews with journalists, media pictures, and public opinion surveys in both UK and India, the authors outline the differing cultural, religious and political contexts against which "world views" form present an interesting picture between North and South. Mass media and communication technology is in danger of locking Northern countries into a ghetto of environmental self-deception thereby perpetuating poverty in the South. The South's goal remains the attainment of development; the North sees "environmental" problems occuring "elsewhere"--In Eastern Europe and developing countries. Whether or not "environmentalism" becomes a universal cause depends on how and to what extent such sharply contrasting world views can converge
Time-scales and environmental change by Thackwray S Driver( Book )

16 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time is an unstated but ever present element in all debates about environmental change - and the subtext of many disagreements. Geomorphologists think in the context of millions of years, politicians in election terms, the media in decades, and the public ceases to worry about global warming with one bad summer. This volume brings together experts from a diverse range of disciplines, to offer a range of both temporal and geographical perspectives. It does not seek to provide clear answers about "right" time-scales, but rather to encourage the reader, from whatever perspective, to think about change and environmental issues in a new light through different time-scales
The geopolitics of South Asia : from early empires to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh by Graham Chapman( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2017 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This title was first published in 2000: This volume explores one of the world's greatest cultural heartlands - the Indian sub-continent. It shows how geological movements moulded the land and how they still impact upon it; how the culture of early setters evolved to form Hinduism; how its wealth and power attracted the attention of Islamic invaders who founded the Sultanate of Delhi and then the great Mogul Empire; and how they were later usurped by the British Raj. The story continues with the trauma of Partition and Independence in 1947, as India's unique form of Islam shook free from Nehru's secular India with the founding of Pakistan. At different points in the story, discussions are woven in on subjects such as caste or the management of water resources. Much of the book is written in terms of the three major forces of integration.These are "identitive" forces - bonds of language, ethnicity, religion or ideology; "utilitarian" forces - bonds of common material interests; and "coercion" - the institutional use or threat of physical violence. By studying these forces, Professor Chapman shows how the organization of territory - as states and empires, as monarchic realms and as representative democracies - has been central to the region's historic, cultural, linguistic and economic development. In doing so, he contends that the lynchpin of this region's story is a geopolitical one."--Provided by publisher

Monty Python's flying circus by Monty Python (Comedy troupe)( Recording )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the world of Monty Python, sheep fly, pet store owners blithely sell dead parrots, candy makers fill chocolates with strange creatures, and lumberjacks sing proudly about being cross-dressers. The sometimes silly, sometimes laugh-out-loud, sometimes "groaner" sketches are marked by exaggeration, word play, and absurdity of a particularly British sensibility
