Book Description This new edition is a revised and expanded version of the book produced in 2000 to celebrate the quincentenary of King's College Chapel, Aberdeen. Since then, exciting discoveries have taken place and old ideas have been reappraised. The choir stalls and woodwork have provided a fresh seam of information about the meaning and use of the medieval chapel. Daniel MacCannell has identified new iconography in the stalls. Jane Geddes, prompted by the installation of the new organ, has investigated the original function and appearance of the great pulpitum or screen between the choir and nave and discovered the location of a magnificent lost organ loft. Mary Pryor and John Morrison have examined the great baroque biblical paintings and come up with a totally new interpretation of their iconography and function: a political warning to King Charles II. Easter Smart, the university chaplain, describes the flexible and ecumenical use of the chapel today. The revised edition appears in time to honour the quincentenary of the death of Bishop William Elphinstone, the founder of Aberdeen University, who died in 1514. This book aims to integrate his legacy to the chapel: the liturgy, music, architecture and fittings. Thanks to an unusually tolerant and conservative attitude towards religion at the university following the Reformation, the chapel has survived in a more complete medieval state than any other church in Scotland. The rich archive of university documents show how benign neglect and a fierce pride in their iconic building caused the university to maintain the structure and its furnishings even during the long centuries when it ceased to serve a religious function. Editorial Reviews, Northern Universities, 2000, Viva Books, 2012. 2nd edition. Hardcover. New. Explaining the paradoxical nature of the world’s largest and most diverse democracy, this new edition of Understanding Contemporary India has been thoroughly revised to reflect nearly a decade of change. The book includes entirely new chapters on history, international relations, caste, and the role of women, as well as extensively updated material on politics, the economy, environmental issues, religion, and the arts. The result is an indispensable introduction, both descriptive and analytical, to the complexities of contemporary India. Contents: Introduction, Neil DeVotta • India: A Geographic Preface, Ashok K.

First Edition. Hardcover. Fine Condition. 264 Pages. Taking as its chronological starting-point the female body of late medieval devotional literature, the volume moves on to a consideration of the representation of gendered bodies in later literature. It then proceeds to examine sixteenth-century occupational orderings of the (male) body in education, the civil service and the army, and involves explorations into a variety of rituals for the purification, ordering and disciplining of the flesh. It includes enquiries into the miraculous royal body, demon bodies, the 'virtual' body of satire, and ends the late seventeenth century with dramatic representations of the diseased body, and the grotesque bodies of travellers? tales as signifiers of racial difference. It pushes forward post-modern notions of the body as a site for competing discourses. It provides new dimensions to fantasies, rituals and regulations in narratives ('fictions') of the body as identifications of forms of knowledge unique to the early modern period. Each of the essays sheds new light on how these late medieval and early modern narratives function to produce specialized and discrete languages of the body that cannot be understood simply in terms, say, of religion, philosophy or physiology, but produce their own discrete forms of knowledge. Thus the essays materially contribute to an understanding of the relationship between the body and spatial knowledge by giving new bearings on epistemologies built upon pre-modern perceptions about bodily spaces and boundaries. They address these issues by analysing forms of knowledge constructed through regulations of the body, fantasies about extensions to the body and creations of bodily, psychic, intellectual and spiritual space. The essays pose important questions about how these epistemologies offer different investments of knowledge into structures of power. What constitutes these knowledges? What are the politics of corporeal spaces? In what forms of knowledge about spatial and bodily perceptions and practices are these early modern narratives embedded? What ideologies shape and contain them? The collection deliberately incorporates a period range which encompasses considerable cultural and ideological shifts that impact upon perceptions of the body. The choice of essays in the volume recognizes both continuities and discontinuities between perceptions of the body in the medieval and early modern periods.

It investigates the tension between semiotic and somatic meanings from various angles by providing hitherto unfamiliar theoretical perspectives and by tracing continuities as well as discontinuities between perceptions of the body in the medieval and early modern periods.'

"Winkler's purposes are to awaken your sensibilities to the nature of the song in a dramatic context, formulate an original theory of dramatic song, provide a broad survey of song in the modern period, and present detailed studies of individual dramatists of contemporary Britain. She examines the sources of the songs, their tradition, their meaning, and wider cultural implications, as well as the reasons a dramatist has for their use, interviewing several of the playwrights personally. Major chapters are devoted to John Arden/Margaretta D'Arcy and Edward Bond. Among other plays of the present, popular song is the type of music most often used. Such songs, ranging from music hall to modern pop, may be utilized for satirical or structural purposes, as in Peter Barnes; they may reflect an ambivalent or nostalgic attitude toward the past, as in John Osbone or Harold Pinter; or they may achieve a total disorientation associated with the theater of the absurd, as in Tom Stoppard. Folk song and working-class song are introduced into the work of Arnold Wesker and classical music into that of Peter Nichols. In the drama of Peter Shaffer and David Rudkin the melodies are often interfused with religious feeling or ritual funcations. In the modern period, dramatic song occupies a unique position as point of contact and conflict between the genres. It demonstrates the vitality of modern British drama and illustrates the revival of the techniques of total theater. "... General Index. Musical Index. Extensive Bibliography.

Translation from German. Summary; Once considered the 'dark continent' in the imagination of the West, Africa is now recognized as the cradle of mankind. It is a land of overwhelming complexity and wealth, both culturally and geographically. Yet its formidable deserts remain largely unexplored. Geographer and photographer Michael Martin's images of these enormous, apparently barren, stretches of land reveal the true cultural and spiritual heritage of Africa. Travelling through the Sahara, the volcanic deserts of the Rift Valley, the Kalahari and the Namib, he explores the lives of the varied peoples who eke out their existence in these inhospitable regions: the nomadic Bororo between Senegal and Chad, who rely primarily on cattle herding; the Tuareg of the Sahara and the Sahel, nomadic goat herders who refer to themselves as the 'free people; and the Tubu, both herders and traders, who occupy the Tibesti mountain range. During his journey, Martin unveils the characteristic features of desert life, such as the Tarhalamt, the last functioning salt caravan of the Sahara which sets out after the rainy season. Without visible landmarks to guide him, the Madugu, or leader of the caravan, relies on the position of the sun, the structure of the sand or the fast-fading traces of former caravans to find his way. He has learned to recognize the individual features of each 'erg', those huge crescent-shaped dunes that dominate the Sahara, and to value the camel, the ship of the desert, the only beast capable of accompanying man, himself wholly unadapted to desert life, into those regions where temperatures suddenly rise and fall and where water is in short supply. Michael Martin's vibrant photographs reveal that desert sands, far from being barren and empty, are the oldest arenas of life's struggle against the elements. Those who choose to live there partake of the landscape's unique beauty and majesty. They appear to Western eyes as the guardians of an inner wealth that shines forth all the more when set against the material abundance that so often compensates for the spiritual privation of today's industrialized world.

[EAN: 9780521568708], Neubuch, [SC: 0.0], [PU: CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS Jan 1999], Neuware - One of the most intriguing questions of our time is how some of the masterpieces of modernity originated in a country in which personal liberty and democracy were slow to emerge. This Companion provides an authoritative account of modern German culture since the onset of industrialisation, the rise of mass society and the nation state. Newly written and researched by experts in their respective fields, individual chapters trace developments in German culture - including national identity, class, Jews in German society, minorities and women, the functions of folk and mass culture, poetry, drama, theatre, dance, music, art, architecture, cinema and mass media - from the nineteenth century to the present. Guidance is given for further reading and a chronology is provided. In its totality the Companion shows how the political and social processes that shaped modern Germany are intertwined with cultural genres and their agendas of creative expression. Englisch
