(P/B) BEHAVIOURAL ANALYSIS OF CRIME
STUDIES IN DAVID CANTER'S INVESTIGATIVE PSYCHOLOGY
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0289

The intense interest in 'offender profiling' generated by FBI special agents, gave rise to an explosion of studies in a new area called 'investigative psychology' by its originator David Canter. This develops understanding of offenders' behaviour that can be harnessed to improve investigations. In this rapidly developing area much has been learnt about what offenders reveal about themselves through their styles of offending. Beyond criminals' actions the location of their crimes can also reveal where the offender lives or which offences ca...

(P/B) A SHORT GUIDE TO CUSTOMS RISK
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0302

The historic growth in world trade, large container ships and information technology have triggered profound changes in international trade. A few years ago, customs officers at the border were meticulously checking goods and documents before releasing a shipment to the trader. A business could be confident that a shipment that had cleared customs complied with all applicable regulations. Today, to reduce congestion and give the trade quick access to their goods, customs have introduced risk management principles and a large number of ship...

(P/B) THE REFLECTIVE PRACTITIONER
HOW PROFESSIONALS THINK IN ACTION
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0301

A leading M.I.T. social scientist and consultant examines five professions - engineering, architecture, management, psychotherapy, and town planning - to show how professionals really go about solving problems. The best professionals, Donald SchAn maintains, know more than they can put into words. To meet the challenges of their work, they rely less on formulas learned in graduate school than on the kind of improvisation learned in practice. This unarticulated, largely unexamined process is the subject of SchAn's provocatively original boo...

(H/B) THE MAKING OF MODERN GREECE
NATIONALISM, ROMANTICISM, AND THE USES OF THE PAST (1797-1896)
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0203

Every Greek and every friend of the country knows the date 1821, when the banner of revolution was raised against the empire of the Ottoman Turks, and the story of 'Modern Greece' is usually said to begin. Less well known, but of even greater importance, was the international recognition given to Greece as an independent state with full sovereign rights, as early as 1830. This places Greece in the vanguard among the new nation-states of Europe whose emergence would gather momentum through to the early twentieth century, a process whose rep...

(P/B) FROM HUMAN TO POSTHUMAN
CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY AND TECHNOLOGY IN A POSTMODERN WORLD
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0300

Technology is one of the dominant forces shaping the emerging postmodern world. Indeed the very fabric of daily life is dependent upon various information, communication, and transportation technologies. With anticipated advances in biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and robotics, that dependence will increase. Yet this growing dependence is accompanied with a deep ambivalence. For many technology symbolises the faith of the postmodern world, but it is an ambivalent faith encapsulating both our hopes and fears for the future. This boo...

(H/B) LEADERSHIP META-COMPETENCIES
DISCOVERING HIDDEN VIRTUES
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0291

This book doesn't offer overrated success stories which in most cases cannot be imitated. It contains no check lists or recipes for success and it presents no theoretically-based models. The meta-competencies discussed in this refreshing book are timeless virtues of which effective leaders seem to possess, but which are rarely if ever included in lists of competencies in the vast business leadership literature. They include: Existential intelligence - distinct from the much discussed emotional intelligence, is about the ability to pose que...

(H/B) GREEK DIASPORA AND MIGRATION SINCE 1700
SOCIETY, POLITICS AND CULTURE
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0200

The Greek diaspora is one of the paradigmatic historical diasporas. Though some trace its origins to ancient Greek colonies, it is really a more modern phenomenon. Diaspora, exile and immigration represent three successive phases in Modern Greek history and they are useful vantage points from which to analyse changes in Greek society, politics and culture over the last three centuries. Embracing a wide range of case studies, this volume charts the role of territorial displacements as social and cultural agents from the eighteenth century t...

(H/B) PSEUDO-KODINOS AND THE CONSTANTINOPOLITAN COURT: OFFICES AND CEREMONIES
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0299

The work known as Pseudo-Kodinos, the fourteenth-century text which is one of two surviving ceremonial books from the Byzantine empire, is presented here for the first time in English translation. With facing page Greek text and the first in-depth analysis in the form of commentary and individual studies on the hierarchy, the ceremonies, court attire, the Blachernai palace, lighting, music, gestures and postures, this volume makes an important new contribution to the study of the Byzantine court, and to the history and culture of Byzantium...

(P/B) QUEER ATTACHMENTS
THE CULTURAL POLITICS OF SHAME
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0298

Why is shame so central to our identity and to our culture? What is its role in stigmatizing subcultures such as the Irish, the queer or the underclass? Can shame be understood as a productive force? In this lucid and passionately argued book, Sally R. Munt explores the vicissitudes of shame across a range of texts, cultural milieux, historical locations and geographical spaces - from eighteenth-century Irish politics to Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, from contemporary US academia to the aesthetics of Tracey Emin. She finds t...

(P/B) THE POLITICAL UNCONSCIOUS OF ARCHITECTURE
RE-OPENING JAMESON'S NARRATIVE
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0297

Thirty years have passed since eminent cultural and literary critic Fredric Jameson wrote his classic work, The Political Unconscious: Narrative as a Socially Symbolic Act, in which he insisted that 'there is nothing that is not social and historical - indeed, that everything is "in the last analysis" political'. Bringing together a team of leading scholars including Slavoj Zizek, Joan Ockman, Jane Rendell, and Kojin Karatani, this book critically examines the important contribution made by Jameson to the radical critique of architecture o...

(P/B) HOW POPULAR MUSICIANS LEARN
A WAY AHEAD FOR MUSIC EDUCATION
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0296

Popular musicians acquire some or all of their skills and knowledge informally, outside school or university, and with little help from trained instrumental teachers. How do they go about this process? Despite the fact that popular music has recently entered formal music education, we have as yet a limited understanding of the learning practices adopted by its musicians. Nor do we know why so many popular musicians in the past turned away from music education, or how young popular musicians today are responding to it. Drawing on a series o...

(H/B) MUSLIM LAWS, POLITICS AND SOCIETY IN MODERN NATION STATES
DYNAMIC LEGAL PLURALISMS IN ENGLAND, TURKEY AND PAKISTAN
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0295

Drawing on theories of legal pluralism, this book tests whether and to what extent claims of the modern nation-state laws to exclusive dominance over other spheres are tenable, and reassesses the operation of law in society. Incorporating a combination of legal theory, post-modern critique and socio-legal analysis of three current jurisdictions in which Muslims play an important role, the volume identifies Muslims' current socio-legal situation and attitudes from different perspectives and reconciles them with modern legal systems in three...

(H/B) CARVED IN STONE, ETCHED IN MEMORY
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0292

Despite the recent history of violence and destruction, Bosnia-Herzegovina holds a positive place in history, marked by a continuous interweaving of different religious cultures. The most expansive period in that regard is the Ottoman rule that lasted here nearly five centuries. As many Bosnians accepted Islam, the process of Islamization took on different directions and meanings, only some of which are recorded in the official documents. This book underscores the importance of material culture, specifically gravestones, funerary inscripti...

(P/B) TALKING ABOUT GOD
THE CONCEPT OF ANALOGY AND THE PROBLEM OF RELIGIOUS LANGUAGE
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0290

A fundamental question for theology is the question how we are to understand the claims that we make about God. The only language we can understand is the language we use to talk about human beings and their environment. How can we use that language to talk about God while respecting the infinite difference between God and humanity? The traditional answer has been to appeal to the concept of analogy. However, that appeal has been interpreted in widely different ways. This book aims to clarify the question and this answer by an analysis of ...

(H/B) LEON BATTISTA ALBERTI AND NICHOLAS CUSANUS
TOWARDS AN EPISTEMOLOGY OF VISION FOR ITALIAN RENAISSANCE ART AND CULTURE
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0288

Providing a fresh evaluation of Alberti's text On Painting (1435), along with comparisons to various works of Nicholas Cusanus - particularly his Vision of God (1450) - this study reveals a shared epistemology of vision. And, the author argues, it is one that reflects a more deeply Christian Neoplatonic ideal than is typically accorded Alberti. Whether regarding his purpose in teaching the use of a geometric single point perspective system, or more broadly in rendering forms naturalistically, the emphasis leans toward the ideal of Renaissa...

(H/B) FROM FORMALISM TO WEAK FORM
THE ARCHITECTURE AND PHILOSOPHY OF PETER EISENMAN
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0285

Peter Eisenman is one of the most controversial protagonists of the architectural scene, who is known as much for his theoretical essays as he is for his architecture. While much has been written about his built works and his philosophies, most books focus on one or the other aspect. By structuring this volume around the concept of form, Stefano Corbo links together Eisenman's architecture with his theory. From Formalism to Weak Form: The Architecture and Philosophy of Peter Eisenman argues that form is the sphere of mediation between our ...

(H/B) MAGIC AND DIVINATION IN EARLY ISLAM
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0283

Magic and divination in early Islam encompassed a wide range of practices, including belief in jinn, warding off the evil eye, the production of amulets and other magical equipment, conjuring, wonder-working, dream interpretation, predicting the weather, casting lots, astrology, and physiognomy. The ten studies here are concerned with the pre-Islamic antecedents of such practices, and with the theory of magic in healing, the nature and use of amulets and their decipherment, the arts of astrometeorology and geomancy, the refutation of astro...

(H/B) STATE AND SOCIETY IN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
Εκδότης: ASHGATE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0363-0284

This book has three main themes: the socio-economic history of Turkish society in the 17th-18th centuries; the outcome of the Tanzimat (Reforms) in the province of Jerusalem, as an example of the whole phenomenon; and the historical origins of Turkish and Arab identities leading to the modern phenomenon of nationalism. Many of the studies are based on archival research, and the documents give a new picture of the issues involved. Thus, women were much more involved in the public arena and in economic life of the city that formerly thought;...
