The club is immediately put on shut-down while police interview everyone present. The manager acts suspiciously, but if he was a murderer, why dispose of a body so close to home? The case lands on DI Tanya Miller's desk the moment she returns from sick leave. But her attempts to galvanise her team are thwarted with the appearance of a new, ambitious DI who seems set on undermining her efforts. It is not long before other body parts are found.

Summary : Colonialism has three foundational concerns - violence, territory, and population control - all of which rest on racialist discourse and practice. Placing the Zionist project in Israel/Palestine within the context of settler colonialism reveals strategies and goals behind the region’s rules of governance that have included violence, repressive state laws and racialized forms of surveillance. In Israel’s Colonial Project in Palestine: Brutal Pursuit, Elia Zureik revisits and reworks fundamental ideas that informed his first work on colonialism and Palestine three decades ago. Focusing on the means of control that are at the centre of Israel’s actions toward Palestine, this book applies Michel Foucault’s work on biopolitics to colonialism and to the situation in Israel/Palestine in particular. It reveals how racism plays a central role in colonialism and biopolitics, and how surveillance, in all its forms, becomes the indispensable tool of governance. It goes on to analyse territoriality in light of biopolitics, with the dispossession of indigenous people and population transfer advancing the state’s agenda and justified as in the interests of national security. The book incorporates sociological, historical and postcolonial studies into an informed and original examination of the Zionist project in Palestine, from the establishment of Israel through to the actions and decisions of the present-day Israeli government. Providing new perspectives on settler colonialism informed by Foucault’s theory, and with particular focus on the role played by state surveillance in controlling the Palestinian population, this book is a valuable resource for students and scholars interested in the Arab-Israeli Conflict and Colonialism.

Summary : How much is a human life worth? Individuals, families, companies, and governments routinely place a price on human life. The calculations that underlie these price tags are often buried in technical language, yet they influence our economy, laws, behaviors, policies, health, and safety. These price tags are often unfair, infused as they are with gender, racial, national, and cultural biases that often result in valuing the lives of the young more than the old, the rich more than the poor, whites more than blacks, Americans more than foreigners, and relatives more than strangers. This is critical since undervalued lives are left less-protected and more exposed to risk. Howard Steven Friedman explains in simple terms how economists and data scientists at corporations, regulatory agencies, and insurance companies develop and use these price tags and points a spotlight at their logical flaws and limitations. He then forcefully argues against the rampant unfairness in the system. Readers will be enlightened, shocked, and, ultimately, empowered to confront the price tags we assign to human lives and understand why such calculations matter.

Summary : A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Creating the Intellectual redefines how we understand relations between intellectuals and the Chinese socialist revolution of the last century. Under the Chinese Communist Party, “the intellectual” was first and foremost a widening classification of individuals based on Marxist thought. The party turned revolutionaries and otherwise ordinary people into subjects identified as usable but untrustworthy intellectuals, an identification that profoundly affected patterns of domination, interaction, and rupture within the revolutionary enterprise. Drawing on a wide range of data, Eddy U takes the reader on a journey that examines political discourses, revolutionary strategies, rural activities, urban registrations, workplace arrangements, organized protests, and theater productions. He lays out in colorful detail the formation of new identities, forms of organization, and associations in Chinese society. The outcome is a compelling picture of the mutual constitution of the intellectual and the Chinese socialist revolution, the legacy of which still affects ways of seeing, thinking, acting, and feeling in what is now a globalized China.

Summary : "This is exactly the kind of work, with its synthesis of theory, close reading, and deconstructive performance criticism that many of us in the profession have been looking for." —Joel B. Altman, University of California, Berkeley "McCandless's book represents an inventive and illuminating account that not only produces a theoretically activated text but also explores a range of options for staging it, turning Âtheoretical into Âtheatrical meanings." —Barbara Hodgdon, Drake University "The writing is clear, snappy, wonderfully informed with a vivid and experienced theatrical imagination... a book that taught me a good deal about the problem comedies, especially from the vantage point of performance, though the insights into performance are fully and incisively integrated with, and they richly illuminate, formal, thematic, and psychological vantage points on the play." —Richard P. Wheeler, University of Illinois Composed at a critical moment in English history, ÂAll's Well That Ends Well, Measure for Measure, and Troilus and Cressida—Shakespeare's problem plays—dramatize a crisis in the sex-gender system. They register a male dread of emasculation and engulfment, a fear of female authority and sexuality. In these plays males identify desire for a female as dangerous and unmanly, females contend and confound traditional femininity. David McCandless's book is a unique and invigorating example of performance criticism that illuminates these difficult, sometimes-overlooked tragicomedies. It is an original and timely contribution to Shakespearean theater scholarship.

Summary : "This clear-sighted biography and literary study examines Dickens the novelist in all his glory. It begins with the life: its often tragic as well as comic dimensions. Brian Murray analyzes the important influence of Dickens's early professional experiences as a journalist. (It was as a reporter that Dickens encountered, and first wrote about, the great human problems of modern urban life that were to inform so much of his later work.) Also discussed is Dickens's fascination with the theater. Like any experienced playwright, he was always acutely aware of his audience. And the later reading tours, which became an obsession, were almost certainly an aspect of the same impulse." "Successive chapters discuss the great novels, from Pickwick to Edwin Drood. They are looked at in their social context and from the standpoint of character, narrative, and structure. Readings of novels such as Dombey and Son and Bleak House are of especial interest for their close analysis of sometimes neglected works." "At times, Dickens seems dated. But the large audience that exists for his work today, as it appears in various media, is proof of his teeming inventiveness and the universality of his themes. Humorist, satirist, muckraker, sentimentalist, tragedian, chronicler of humanity, Dickens continues to delight and to teach - to enlighten all of humanity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Summary : In the study of American literature there persists an assumption that literary naturalism was overtaken around 1910 or so by modernism, a mode of writing that represents a clear advancement in technique and subject matter. This idea has been reinforced by the segregation of academic literary study into distinct periods of specialization, a disciplinary cordon that helps to explain an otherwise puzzling absence of critical work that seeks to identify elements of continuity between the two literary modes. My dissertation argues that naturalism and modernism ought not to be regarded as ancestor and successor upon an evolutionary timeline of development, but rather as complementary strategies of representation that are 'co-implicated' in American urban fiction. In the dissertation I maintain that during the fin-de-siecle period of accelerated industrialization and urbanization a new system of cultural selection called 'the promotional matrix' begins to fuse and focalize public and private spheres so that individual identities are defined vis-a-vis the wider social system, which is itself increasingly devoted to the promotion of individual identities. Pace the poststructuralist critics of the last twenty years who have sought to debunk the oppositional status of naturalism, it is my contention that the most vital and lasting legacy of the original generation of American naturalists can be found in their shared commitment to describing and interrogating the system of structured competition that was coming to mediate between the self and the public in the United States. Indeed, I argue that naturalism constitutes a usable literary counter-tradition for the writers of modernism, one that they freely adapted and transformed in accordance with changing literary techniques and political circumstances. Throughout the dissertation I approach questions of literary form by considering how fiction might be related to such disparate discourses as urban sociology, economic data, cultural geography, popular culture, critical theory and literary biography. While my analysis might be accurately characterized as 'materialist' or 'historicist' I have also been crucially informed by deconstruction, gender studies and psychoanalysis, methods that have helped me to more fully comprehend the co-extensive realms of social space and representation.
