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

Anwalt Matt King (George Clooney) und seine Frau Elizabeth (Patricia Hastie) führen eine nach außen hin normale Ehe. Beruflich erfolgreich, kümmern sie sich in erster Linie um ihre eigenen Karrieren. Matt verwaltet für seine weitläufige Familie ein traumhaftes Grundstück auf Hawaii, das schon im Besitz der Hawaiianischen Könige und Missionare war und von Generation zu Generation weitergegeben wurde. Während er den äußerst lukrativen Verkauf der Ländereien vorbereitet, stürzt die Familie jäh in eine tiefe Krise: Nach einem schweren Bootsunfall fällt Elizabeth ins Koma und Matt erfährt von seiner 17jährigen Tochter Alexandra (Shailene Woodley), dass seine Frau ein ernstzunehmendes Verhältnis zu einem anderen Mann hatte. Für den seiner Familie entfremdeten Matt bricht eine Welt zusammen. Er muss sich plötzlich um die beiden Töchter kümmern, die Vergangenheit überdenken und seine Zukunft neu ordnen. Zusammen mit Alexandra, ihrem etwas eigenwilligen Freund Sid (Nick Krause) und seiner vorlauten Tochter Scottie (Amara Miller) begibt Matt sich auf die Suche nach dem Liebhaber seiner Frau. Dabei kommt er seinen Töchtern wieder näher

Yoga r/evolution : deconstructing the "authentic" yoga body by Amara Miller( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As yoga was popularized in the United States after the 1960s, processes of professionalization, cultural appropriation, and commodification have led to a secularization of the practice, transforming what once was a spiritual tradition into a fitness industry worth over $16.8 billion. Seeking to unsettle constructions of authenticity in the practice, I investigate: How have practitioners and the yoga industry constructed an “authentic” yoga identity at various social and historical moments? I trace the development of a field of yoga in North America and ensuing contestation as the yoga industry developed in the twenty-first century. In response to the growing power of the yoga-industrial complex, a coalition of body positive activists have used new media technologies to actively resist dominant constructions of a stereotypical “authentic” yoga body. Activists reconstruct what it means to be an “authentic” practitioner, revitalizing spiritual yoga practices in alignment with intersectional feminist ideologies. However, despite initial successes, the body positivity movement has in turn been co-opted by industry actors, reflecting an ongoing struggle for control over meanings of the practice and what it means to be an “authentic” practitioner
