(P/B) ASIAN CINEMAS
A READER AND GUIDE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0000

Asian films are now widely distributed and popular with western audiences. The fascination with Asian cinema must be examined in the context of a complex and often problematic relationship between western scholars, students, viewers and Asian films. This book, therefore, examines a number of detailed case studies (such as the films of Ozu, Bruce Lee, Hong Kong and Turkish cinema, Hindi melodramas, Godzilla films, Taiwanese directors and Fifth Generation Chinese cinema) and uses them in order to investigate the limitations of Anglo-US theor...

(P/B) THE PERIPATETIC FRAME
IMAGES OF WALKING IN FILM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0281

From cinema's earliest days, walking and filmmaking have been intrinsically linked. Technologically, culturally and aesthetically, the pioneers of cinema were not only interested in using the camera to scientifically study ambulatory motion, but were also keen to capture the speed and mobile culture of late 19th-century urban life. Photographers such as Felix Nadar took their cameras into the Parisian streets and boulevards as mechanised fl?neurs, ushering us into the age of the 'mobilised virtual gaze'. But if photography could only emba...

(P/B) ELEFTHERIOS VENIZELOS
THE TRIALS OF STATEMANSHIP
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0213

Eleftherios Venizelos, Prime Minister of Greece 1910-1920 and 1928-1932, is regarded by many as the creator of contemporary Greece and one of the main actors in European diplomacy during his time in office. This book draws on considerable new research and places the study of Venizelos' leadership in the broad setting of twentieth-century politics and diplomacy. The complex and often dramatic trajectory of Venizelos' career from Cretan rebel to an admired European statesman is charted in a sequence of chapters that survey his meteoric rise ...

(P/B) PERFORMING ETHICS THROUGH FILM STYLE
LEVINAS WITH THE DARDENNE BROTHERS, BARBET SCHOEDER AND PAUL SCHRADER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0279

Emmanuel Levinas's ethical philosophy has had a significant influence on film theory in recent years. Proposing a relationship between Levinasian ethics and film style, and bringing it into a productive dialogue with theories of performativity, this book explores this influence through three directorial bodies of work: those of the Dardenne Brothers, Barbet Schroeder and Paul Schrader. Discussing a range of films - including the Dardennes' Le Fils and The Kid with a Bike, Schroeder's Ma?tresse and Reversal of Fortune and Schrader's Americ...

(P/B) ARTMAKING IN THE AGE OF GLOBAL CAPITALISM
VISUAL PRACTICES, PHILOSOPHY POLITICS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0280

Jan Bryant looks at the strategies visual artists and filmmakers are using to criticise the social and economic conditions shaping our historical moment. She then assesses how the world is being positively re-imagined through their work today. Located at the intersection of practice and theory, Bryant argues that an effective contemporary political aesthetics encompasses more than just analysis of a work's conceptual or aesthetic reality. It should also consider the impact the artwork has at the point of reception, the methods adopted by ...

(P/B) TALES OF THE TROUBLED DEAD
GHOST STORIES IN CULTURAL HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0277

Considers the ways ghost stories appeal to our uneasy relationship with conventional good sense What do they want, the ghosts that, even in the age of science, still haunt our storytelling? Catherine Belsey's answer to the question traces Gothic writing and tales of the uncanny from the ancient past to the present - from Homer and the Icelandic sagas to Lincoln in the Bardo. Taking Shakespeare's Ghost in Hamlet as a turning point in the history of the genre, she uncovers the old stories the play relies on, as well as its influence on later...

(P/B) DELEUZE AND HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0278

Despite the fact that time, evolution, becoming and genealogy are central concepts in Deleuze's work, there has been no sustained study of his philosophy in relation to the question of history. This book aims to open up Deleuze's relevance to those working in history, the history of ideas, science studies, evolutionary psychology, history of philosophy and interdisciplinary projects inflected by historical problems. The essays in this volume (all by internationally recognised Deleuze scholars) cover all aspects of Deleuze's philosophy and ...

(P/B) THE EDINBURGH HISTORY OF THE GREEKS, 1768 TO 1913
THE LONG NINETEENTH CENTURY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0259

Often referred to as the 'Long Nineteenth Century,' this period witnessed the establishment of a Greek nation-state which had a profound impact on the Greeks everywhere. Innovatively situating the story of the Greeks into a broader Ottoman and Mediterranean context, Thomas Gallant presents the most in-depth exploration of Greek society and culture available in any language. This is a substantive and original contribution to the study of the Greek people during the Modern period. Key features: - An interdisciplinary approach bridges history...

(P/B) DELEUZE AND SPACE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0078

Gilles Deleuze was arguably the twentieth century's most spatial philosopher - not only did he contribute a plethora of new concepts to engage space, space was his very means of doing philosophy. He said everything takes place on a plane of immanence, envisaging a vast desert-like space populated by concepts moving about like nomads. Deleuze made philosophy spatial and gave us the concepts of smooth and striated, nomadic and sedentary, deterritorialization and reterritorialization, the fold, as well as many others to enable us to think spa...

(P/B) THE GODS OF ANCIENT GREECE
IDENTITIES AND TRANSFORMATIONS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0273

This collection offers a fresh look at the nature and development of the Greek gods in the period from Homer until Late Antiquity. The Greek gods are still very much present in modern consciousness. Although Apollo and Dionysos, Artemis and Aphrodite, Zeus and Hermes are household names, it is much less clear what these divinities meant and stood for in ancient Greece. In fact, they have been very much neglected in modern scholarship. Bremmer and Erskine bring together a team of international scholars with the aim of remedying this situat...

(H/B) THE CONSTRUCTIVIST TURN IN POLITICAL REPRESENTATION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0276

Explores the 'constructivist turn': political representation's reorientation toward the constitutive or mobilising aspects of mass democracy This volume traces the roots of the constructivist turn in the distinct (and competing) traditions of Continental and Anglo-American Western political thought. Divided into three thematic parts, these 13 newly commissioned essays develop the constructivist turn as a central concept. They advance the insight that there can be no democratic politics without representation; constituencies or groups exist...

(P/B) DELEUZE AND PERFORMANCE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0261

Was performance important to Deleuze? Is Deleuze important to performance; to its practical, as well as theoretical, research? What are the implications of Deleuze's philosophy of difference, process and becoming, for Performance Studies, a field in which many continue to privilege the notion of performance as representation, as anchored by its imitation of an identity: 'the world', 'the play', 'the self'? Deleuze and Performance is a collection of new essays dedicated to Deleuze's writing on theatre and to the productivity of his philosop...

(H/B) PRISONS IN THE LATE OTTOMAN EMPIRE
MICROCOSMS OF MODERNITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0275

The Western world stereotypically associates Ottoman or 'Turkish' prisons with images of torture, narcotics and brutal sexual behaviour. Now, Kent F. Schull argues that these prisons were actually a site of immense reform and contestation during the 19th century. Schull shows that prisons were key components for Ottoman nation-state construction and acted as 'microcosms of modernity' for broader imperial transformation. It was within the walls of these prisons that many of the pressing questions of Ottoman modernity were worked out. By jux...

(H/B) RULER VISIBILITY AND POPULAR BELONGING IN THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE, 1808-1908
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1275-0274

This book argues that the periodic ceremonial intrusion into the everyday lives of people across the Ottoman Empire, which the annual royal birthday and accession-day celebrations constituted, had multiple, far-reaching and largely unexplored consequences. On the one hand, it brought ordinary subjects into symbolic contact with the monarch and forged lasting vertical ties of loyalty to him, irrespective of language, location, creed or class. On the other hand, the rounds of royal celebration played a key role in the creation of new types o...
