(P/B) JOY DIVISION'S UNKNOWN PLEASURES
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0495

Joy Division's career has often been shrouded by myths. But the truth is surprisingly simple: over a period of several months, Joy Division transformed themselves from run-of-the-mill punk wannabes into the creators of one of the most atmospheric, disturbing, and influential debut albums ever recorded. Chris Ott carefully picks apart fact from fiction to show how Unknown Pleasures came into being, and how it still resonates so strongly today.

(P/B) FOOLS, FRAUDS AND FIREBRANDS
THINKERS OF THE NEW LEFT
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0489

A devastating critique of New Left thinking In Fools, Frauds and Firebrands, Roger Scruton first surveys and then deconstructs the golden idols of left wing thought from the 1960s to the present day. He dissects the hollow works of Hobsbawm and E. P. Thompson, Galbraith and Dworkin, Sartre and Foucault and exposes the lack of coherence in the works of Althusser, Lacan, Deleuze, Badiou and Zizek. Scruton ponders why the humanities have become so unambiguously aligned to the left, and reveals how fully such thinking has seized the academy in...

(P/B) COMMUNION AND OTHERNESS
FURTHER STUDIES IN PERSONHOOD
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0349

'Communion and otherness: how can these be reconciled?' In this wide-ranging study, the distinguished Orthodox theologian, Metropolitan John (Zizioulas) of Pergamon, seeks to answer that question. In his celebrated book, Being as Communion (1985), he emphasised the importance of communion for life and for unity. In this important companion volume he now explores the complementary fact that communion is the basis for true otherness and identity. With a constant awareness of the deepest existential questions of today, Metropolitan John prob...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0482

Software has replaced a diverse array of physical, mechanical, and electronic technologies used before 21st century to create, store, distribute and interact with cultural artifacts.

INTERNATIONAL CANONIZATION AND TRANSNATIONAL LITERATURES
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0519

Mapping World Literature explores the study of literature and literary history in light of global changes, looking at what defines world literature in the 21st century. Surveying ideas of literature from Goethe to the present, Thomsen devises a compelling concept of literary constellations.

(P/B) WITTGENSTEIN'S "TRACTATUS LOGICO-PHILOSOPHICUS"
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0288

Wittgenstein's Tractatus - the only book he actually published within his lifetime - was an immensely important work which changed the direction of philosophy in the first half of the twentieth century. Highlighting the importance of the nature of language in philosophy and the problematic nature of metaphysics, it strongly influenced the work of Russell, the Vienna Circle and A. J. Ayer. An understanding of the ideas in the Tractatus is essential to fully grasp Wittgenstein's remarkable thought. In Wittgenstein's 'Tractatus Logico-Philos...

(P/B) CLASSICAL JAPANESE CINEMA REVISITED
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0517

Catherine Russell's highly accessible book approaches Japanese cinema as an industry closely modeled on Hollywood, focusing on the classical period - those years in which the studio system dominated all film production in Japan, from roughly 1930 to 1960. Respectful and thoroughly informed about the aesthetics and critical values of the Japanese canon, Russell is also critical of some of its ideological tendencies, and her analyses provide new insights on class and gender dynamics. Russell locates Japanese cinema within a global system of...

Εκδότης: CONTINUUM

Giles Deleuze (1925-1995) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII. He is a key figure in poststructuralism and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. In Foucault, Deleuze presents one of the most incisive and productive analyses of the work of Michel Foucault. This is a crucial examination of the philosophical foundations and principal themes of Foucault's work, providing a rigorous engagement with Foucault's views on knowledge, punishment, power, and the nature of subjectivity.

(P/B) SEVEN BASIC PLOTS
WHY WE TELL STORIES
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0316

This remarkable and monumental book at last provides a comprehensive answer to the age-old riddle of whether there are only a small number of 'basic stories' in the world. Using a wealth of examples, from ancient myths and folk tales via the plays and novels of great literature to the popular movies and TV soap operas of today, it shows that there are seven archetypal themes which recur throughout every kind of storytelling. But this is only the prelude to an investigation into how and why we are 'programmed' to imagine stories in these wa...

This title tracks these seismic shifts across a wide range of music including modern composition, free jazz, experimental rock and pop, in...

(H/B) HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY (VOLUME 28)
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0510

While political and social historians have made great progress in trying to understand the making of modern Greece by studying politics and power struggles, little attention has been given to the co-evolution of the Greek state and the technologies that were developed during this period. This volume helps fills this gap, exploring the formation of the Greek state and the construction of 'modern' Greece through the lens of the history of technology and industry. The contributors look at the role of engineering institutions, the press and of...
