(P/B) MALLARME ON FASHION
A TRANSLATION OF THE FASHION MAGAZINE LA DERNIERE MODE WITH COMMENTARY
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0016

In the later months of 1874, the great French poet, Stephane Mallarme, undertook a highly idiosyncratic project - the publication of a fashion magazine (La Derniere Mode) that he almost single-handedly wrote and edited. Using a variety of feminine and masculine pseudonyms to theorize about the concept of fashion and to report and advise on womens clothing, popular vacation destinations, home furnishings and entertainment, Mallarme created a spectacularly original work that lies somewhere between Baudelaires seminal treatment of fashion in ...

(P/B) PHENOMENOLOGY OF LANDSCAPES - PLACES PATHS & MONUMENTS
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0067

Offers a new approach to landscape perception.This book is an extended photographic essay about topographic features of the landscape. It integrates philosophical approaches to landscape perception with anthropological studies of the significance of the landscape in small-scale societies. This perspective is used to examine the relationship between prehistoric sites and their topographic settings. The author argues that the architecture of Neolithic stone tombs acts as a kind of camera lens focussing attention on landscape features such as...

(P/B) BALLET ACROSS BORDERS
CAREER AND CULTURE IN THE WORLD OF DANCERS
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0119

This absorbing book is ballet's 'biography' - a revealing examination of a closed world, its competition and camaraderie, sexual politics, intimacies, pressures and, not least of all, its magic. Ballet companies have endeavoured to hide what is going on backstage lest the reality of highly strung nerves, constant fatigue and pain from injuries tarnish the illusion of ethereal figures and seemingly weightless steps in polished performances. But the audience's perceptions of fairy-tale worlds onstage are far removed from the experiences of t...

(P/B) THE ANTHROPOLOGY OF TIME
CULTURAL CONSTRUCTIONS OF TEMPORAL MAPS AND IMAGES
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0102

Time - relentless, ever-present but intangible and the single element over which human beings have no absolute control - has long proved a puzzle. The author examines the phenomenon of time and asks such fascinating questions as how time impinges on people, to what extent our awareness of time is culturally conditioned, how societies deal with temporal problems and whether time can be considered a `resource' to be economized. More specifically, he provides a consistent and detailed analysis of theories put forward by a number of thinkers s...

(P/B) FILM FABLES
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0035

Cinema is the combination of the unconscious eye of the camera and the conscious eye of the director, of the intimate face of things recorded on celluloid and their intentional arrangement during the editing process, of the will of the artist and the silent impression of things with neither will nor meaning. This identity of opposites had been formulated and circulated as an idea and ideal of art for a good hundred years before the first public screenings, in philosophy, painting, theater, and literature. Flaubert had dreamed of writing a ...

(P/B) OCCUPIED ECONOMIES
AN ECONOMIC HISTORY OF NAZI-OCCUPIED EUROPE, 1939-1945
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0097

What were the consequences of the German occupation for the economy of occupied Europe? After Germany conquered major parts of the European continent, it was faced with a choice between plundering the suppressed countries and using their economies to supply its needs. The choices made not only differed from country to country, but also changed over the course of the war. Individual leaders; the economic needs of the Reich; the military situation; struggles between governors of occupied countries and Berlin officials; and finally racism, al...

Providing a thorough and comprehensive introduction to the study of photography, this second edition of Photography: The Key Concepts has been expanded and updated to cover more fully contemporary changes to photography. Photography is a part of everyday life; from news and advertisements, to data collection and surveillance, to the shaping of personal and social identity, we are constantly surrounded by the photographic image. Outlining an overview of photographic genres, David Bate explores how these varied practices can be coded and int...

(P/B) AGEING AND YOUTH CULTURES
MUSIC, STYLE AND IDENTITY
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0103

What happens to punks, clubbers, goths, riot girls, soulies, break-dancers and queer scene participants as they become older? For decades, research on spectacular 'youth cultures' has understood such groups as adolescent phenomena and assumed that involvement ceases with the onset of adulthood. In an age of increasingly complex life trajectories, Ageing and Youth Cultures is the first anthology to challenge such thinking by examining the lives of those who continue to participate into adulthood and middle-age. Showcasing a range of origina...

(P/B) CITY OF PANIC
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0056

City of Panic takes the reader on a journey across the airy boulevards of Paris and into the crypt of its Metro. For Virilio, whose sense of cities was formed by earlier wars, Paris is both the City of Light and the City of Panic. Written in the shadow of war, City of Panic argues that cities everywhere have been the dedicated target of political and technological terror throughout the 20th century. The wanton erasure of the past, the construction of identikit places, the proliferation of gated-communities, the ever-widening net of surveil...

(P/B) ETHNICITY, IDENTITY AND MUSIC
THE MUSICAL CONSTRUCTION OF PLACE
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0118

Directly relevant to the needs of teachers and researchers in music, musicology, ethnomusicology and social anthropology. This book examines the significance of music in the construction of identities and ethnicities, and suggests ways to understand music as social practice. The authors focus on the role of music in the construction of national and regional identities; the media and 'postmodern identity'; concepts of authenticity; aesthetics; meaning; performance; 'world music'; and the use of music as a focus for discursive evocations of ...

(P/B) THE ACROPOLIS
GLOBAL FAME, LOCAL CLAIM
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0052

The Acropolis in Athens has captured the imaginations of readers, writers and travellers for centuries and every year draws crowds from all over the world. One of the world's most famous heritage sites, it has long been a national monument of Greece and a potent symbol of western civilization. But the Acropolis is typically viewed in the context of 5th-century-BC Athenian society, while the multiple local and international meanings and identities that the site shapes today are overlooked. This book looks at the meaning of the Acropolis in ...

(P/B) WATER, LEISURE AND CULTURE
EUROPEAN HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVES
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0117

Dancing on the beach after a swim in the Mediterranean, taking the waters in fashionable Baden-Baden, boating on the Black Sea - the myriad uses of water imply that the term itself possesses multiple meanings. Focusing on Europe, this book addresses how using water for relaxation intersects with ideas about class, gender, nationality, and consumption. It also explores the ways Europeans have turned to water for pleasure, relaxation, and profit over the last two hundred years as the enjoyment of free time developed from a privilege into a r...

(P/B) THE CELL PHONE
AN ANTHROPOLOGY OF COMMUNICATION
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0074

Few modern innovations have spread quite so quickly as the cell phone. This technology has transformed communication throughout the world. Mobile telecommunications have had a dramatic effect in many regions, but perhaps nowhere more than for low-income populations in countries such as Jamaica, where in the last few years many people have moved from no phone to cell phone. This book reveals the central role of communication in helping low-income households cope with poverty. The book traces the impact of the cell phone from personal issues...

(P/B) AFRICAN DRESS
FASHION, AGENCY, PERFORMANCE
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0116

Dress and fashion practices in Africa and the diaspora are dynamic and diverse, whether on the street or on the fashion runway. Focusing on the dressed body as a performance site, African Dress explores how ideas and practices of dress contest or legitimize existing power structures through expressions of individual identity and the cultural and political order. Drawing on innovative, interdisciplinary research by established and up and coming scholars, the book examines real life projects and social transformations that are deeply politi...

(P/B) DIGITAL ANTHROPOLOGY
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0115

Anthropology has two main tasks: to understand what it is to be human and to examine how humanity is manifested differently in the diversity of culture. These tasks have gained new impetus from the extraordinary rise of the digital. This book brings together several key anthropologists working with digital culture to demonstrate just how productive an anthropological approach to the digital has already become. Through a range of case studies from Facebook to Second Life to Google Earth, Digital Anthropology explores how human and digital c...

(P/B) QUESTIONS OF ANTHROPOLOGY
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0114

Anthropology today seems to shy away from the big, comparative questions that ordinary people in many societies find compelling. Questions of Anthropology brings these issues back to the centre of anthropological concerns.Individual essays explore birth, death and sexuality, puzzles about the relationship between science and religion, questions about the nature of ritual, work, political leadership and genocide, and our personal fears and desires, from the quest to control the future and to find one's 'true' identity to the fear of being a...

(P/B) LOCATING THE FIELD
SPACE, PLACE AND CONTEXT IN ANTHROPOLOGY
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0113

Are reports of the death of conventional fieldwork in anthropology greatly exaggerated? This book takes a critical look at the latest developments and key issues in fieldwork. The nature of 'locality' itself is problematic for both research subjects and fieldworkers, on the grounds that it must now be maintained and represented in relation to widening (and fragmenting) social frames and networks. Such developments have raised questions concerning the nature of ethnographic presence and scales of comparison. From the social space of a cyber...

(P/B) MEMORIES CAST IN STONE
THE RELEVANCE OF THE PAST IN EVERYDAY LIFE
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0112

How does the past matter in the present? How is a feeling of 'ownership' of the past expressed in people's everyday lives? Should continuity with the distant past be seen as simply a nationalist fiction or is it transformed by local historical imagination? While recent anthropological studies have focused on reconstructing disputed histories, this book examines the multiple ways in which the past is used by people as a critical resource for interpreting the meanings of a changing present. It poses the issue of the felt relevance of the pas...

(P/B) AMERICAN CINEMA OF THE 1940s
THEMES AND VARIATIONS
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0110

The 1940s was a watershed decade for American cinema and the nation. At the start of the decade, Hollywood - shaking off the Depression - launched an unprecedented wave of production, generating some of its most memorable classics, including Citizen Kane, Rebecca, The Lady Eve, Sergeant York, and How Green Was My Valley. Hollywood then joined the national war effort with a vengeance, creating a series of patriotic and escapist films, such as Casablanca, Mrs. Miniver, The Road to Morocco, and Yankee Doodle Dandy. By the end of the war Ameri...

(P/B) AMERICAN CINEMA OF THE 1950s
THEMES AND VARIATIONS
Εκδότης: BERG
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0691-0111

America in the 1950s was a place of sensational commercial possibility coupled with dark nuclear fears and conformist politics. Cold war hysteria and anti-communist witch hunts influenced a culture already falling under the spell of suburbia, television and a brave new world of luxury goods. Throughout the decade Hollywood was under siege: from the Justice Department pressing for big film companies to divest themselves of their theatre holdings; from the middle classes, whose retreat to family entertainment inside the home drastically decr...
