Utopia for realists by Rutger Bregman( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rutger Bregman, a bestselling Dutch historian, explains that it needn't be this way. Bregman shows that we can construct a society with visionary ideas that are, in fact, wholly implementable. Every milestone of civilization - from the end of slavery to the beginning of democracy - was once considered a utopian fantasy. New utopian ideas such as universal basic income and a 15-hour work week can become reality in our lifetime. This guide to a revolutionary yet achievable utopia is supported by multiple studies, lively anecdotes and numerous success stories. From a Canadian city that once completely eradicated poverty, to Richard Nixon's near implementation of a basic income for millions of Americans, Bregman takes us on a journey through history, beyond the traditional left-right divides, as he introduces ideas whose time has come

A mysterious series by Ferdinand Bol : the painted wall hangings in the Peace Palace examined by Margriet van Eikema Hommes( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ferdinand Bol, one of Rembrandt's best-known pupils, made a unique ensemble of five wall-sized canvasses in the 1660's. This interdisciplinary study offers a unique perspective on this exceptional commission, identifying for the first time the origin and history of the paintings, until now shrouded in mystery, the paintings themselves scattered around the Netherlands. The recent restoration of the paintings provided the opportunity to conduct a "forensic" technical investigation, which the author integrates with archival, historical, stylistic and cultural historical research. This integrated approach allows her to identify the painting's origin and the client: a wealthy, strict Calvinist widow from Utrecht who commissioned them over time, choosing themes which reflected her stance on the political and religious conflicts played out in her community

A Sunday Times Bestseller We live in a time of unprecedented upheaval, with questions about the future, society, work, happiness, family and money, and yet no political party of the right or left is providing us with answers. Rutger Bregman, a bestselling Dutch historian, explains that it needn't be this way. Bregman shows that we can construct a society with visionary ideas that are, in fact, wholly implementable.

Revolutie met recht by Roger H. J Cox( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Revolution Justified is a gripping factual account on climate change, tracing our reliance on abundant fossil fuel energy, explaining its link to climate change and revealing the devastating role of corporate lobbyists and passive politicians who keep the issue from being solved. The book explains why the resulting deadlock poses a serious threat to the effective enjoyment of human rights and demonstrates how legal cases grounded in the duty of care can be brought against national governments to help to breach the impasse and generate a renewable energy revolution." --
Overweight, obesity and older Australians: understanding the social context by Elizabeth Manton( )

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

In 2000, the World Health Organization called for urgent public health action to prevent and manage the global epidemic of obesity. Seven years later - at the end of 2007 - the incoming Australian Government made obesity prevention a national health priority area, as being overweight or obese is estimated to be the leading cause of premature death and disability. Obesity can be understood in terms of its pathology, but it is also a social phenomenon, dependent on socially and culturally specific values and understandings. The primary research question addressed in this thesis is how social context influences understandings and experiences of overweight and obesity. Drawing on Foucault's theorising about discourse and power, I show that the obesity discourse in Australia has been shaped by powerful institutions as an economic, medical, political, and public health problem, in ways which are far from objective or disinterested. I demonstrate that the cultural weight given to the power of numbers and the quantitative method has obscured underlying social processes. Like other developed economies, the prevalence of obesity in Australia is inversely associated with socioeconomic status (SES). The secondary research question addressed in this thesis is why this is so. Using an ethnographic approach, I examine the social context of overweight and obesity in late middle-aged Anglo-Australians. My research was conducted in a relatively disadvantaged area of Melbourne over a period of 20 months, from August 2008 to March 2010. While much of the study of this relationship with SES is based on people suffering deprivations associated with poverty, the ethnography was undertaken in a community of 'ordinary' working class people to examine other factors which might have been in operation. Based on my research, the key socioeconomic factor influencing the understandings and experience of obesity was occupation. Drawing on Bourdieu's concept of habitus, I show how working class origins and manual occupations are embedded in people's functional understandings about health and obesity, leading to a significant disconnection between biomedical and social understandings of obesity; habitus also affected attitudes to exercise but less to diet. Occupation and the working class social environment affected the experience of stigma favourably compared to people in professional occupations, especially women. Despite repeated efforts, failure to achieve significant and sustained weight loss was common. In this social group where weight norms were higher and stigma was lower, there was less incentive to commit to the level of dedication necessary to achieve a 'normal' body weight. Yet my participants emphasised their capacity for self discipline through alternative narratives such as difficult but successful smoking cessation. In their conversations with me and each other, a dominant theme was prioritising wellbeing, configured as happiness and contentment, and mental health, over weight and its implications for their health. This research has implications for those framing public health policies and programs. As I illustrate, working class origins and manual occupations underpin people's understandings of overweight and obesity, and so they may not be easily susceptible to change. The relative lack of stigma over body weight should be celebrated, and the potential use of stigma as a public health tool to effect change is neither ethical nor recommended. Facilitating opportunities for social connection and improved wellbeing are appropriate program responses for people who may have priorities other than health or weight, especially those who are managing poor mental health and stress. Rather than narrowly focusing on weight, my research points to the need to consider the wider social context in which people live and experience being overweight or obese

Maelwael : Johan Maelwael, Nijmegen - Paris - Dijon, art around 1400 by Jean Malouel( Book )

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

Johan Maelwael (1365/70-1415), internationally known as Jean Malouel, was one of the most important West European artists of the late Middle Ages. He grew up in Nijmegen as a scion of a family of successful heraldic painters and later became the court painter of the Dukes of Burgundy. This great innovator in painting created his multifaceted oeuvre nearly a century before Hieronymus Bosch. His painting is characterized by elegantly sophisticated figures, a high degree of realism and a bright colour palette with deep shades of blue, red and gold. This publication describes Maelwael's life, his versatile work and his place in history. The paintings of Maelwael, who is rather unknown in the Netherlands, are displayed together with a wealth of unique medieval art treasures, paintings, precious metalwork, sculptures, drawings and manuscripts including richly decorated manuscripts by his legendary cousins, the Limbourg brothers, and lifelike portraits by his contemporary, Claes Sluter
