Εκδότης: MCFARLAND & Co
Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

Myth pervades heavy metal. With visual elements drawn from medieval and horror cinema, the genre's themes of chaos, dissidence and alienation transmit an image of Promethean rebellion against the conventional. In dialogue with the modern world, heavy metal draws imaginatively on myth and folklore to construct an aesthetic and worldview embraced by a vast global audience. The author explores the music of Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, Metallica and many others from a mythological and literary perspective....

This study takes an analytical approach to the world of role-playing games, providing a theoretical framework for understanding their psychological and sociological functions. Sometimes dismissed as escapist and potentially dangerous, role-playing actually encourages creativity, self-awareness, group cohesion and "out-of-the-box" thinking. The book also offers a detailed participant-observer ethnography on role-playing games, featuring insightful interviews with 19 participants of table-top, live action and virtual games.

My Man Godfrey, Four's a Crowd, My Favorite Wife, The Devil and Miss Jones - for their inspired blend of slapstick humor with casual elegance and witty repartee, these movies are examples of what became known as "screwball" comedies. This study focuses on the genre, film-by-film, year-by-year, providing the film enthusiast or serious researcher with an informed guide to the screen offerings of the era. Each of the major contributors is profiled, from directors (such as Capra, Hawks, McCarey or LaCava) to writers (Hecht, Krasna, Wilder, and...

Εκδότης: MCFARLAND & Co
Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

Despite the rise of computer gaming, millions of adults still play face-to-face role-playing games, which rely in part on social interaction to create stories. This work explores tabletop role-playing game (TRPG) as a genre separate from computer role-playing games. The relationship of TRPGs to other games is examined, as well as the influence of Dungeons & Dragons as a tabletop module, a computer game, and a novel. Given particular attention are the narrative and linguistic structures of the gaming session, and the ways that players and g...

Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

For nearly 130 years, the Greeks, the Bulgarians, and the Yugoslavs have fought over the question of who has the historical and demographic rights to use the name "Macedonia." Historically the land of Philip II and Alexander the Great, Aristotle, Mount Olympus and the Greek gods, Macedonia boasts an impressive cultural heritage that the Greeks have claimed as their own. In 1991, a state resulting from the breakup of Yugoslavia proclaimed itself Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), angering the Greeks and adding fuel to the persistent dispute. Th...

As a director, actor, writer and producer, Tod Browning was one of the most dynamic Hollywood figures during the birth of commercial cinema. Known for his fantastic collaborations with Lon Chaney in numerous silents, and for directing the horror classic Dracula and the still-controversial Freaks, Browning has been called "the Edgar Allan Poe of the cinema." Despite not entering the profession until he began acting in his early thirties, he went on to helm more than 60 films in a 25-year career. His work continues to influence directors suc...

(P/B) THE NOIR WESTERN
DARKNESS ON THE RANGE, 1943-1962
Εκδότης: MCFARLAND & Co
Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

Beginning in the mid-1940s, the bleak, brooding mood of film noir began seeping into that most optimistic of film genres, the western. Story lines took on a darker tone and western films adopted classic noir elements of moral ambiguity, complex anti-heroes and explicit violence. The noir western helped set the standard for the darker action and science fiction and superhero films of today, as well as for acclaimed TV series such as HBO's Deadwood and AMC's Breaking Bad. This book covers the stylistic shift in westerns in mid-20th century H...

While John Ford (1894-1973) remains one of the most influential and revered directors in film history, he is also one of the most frequently misunderstood. One widespread assumption is that he was almost exclusively a man's director, dismissive of, or at best not well attuned to, the stories, perspectives and concerns of women. This book forthrightly challenges such an assumption, giving readers a richer understanding of the director's view of the world and of the women as well as the men who inhabit it. Taking a fresh look at dozens of Fo...

A detailed examination of the director's full body of work reveals that those elements most evident in the Tourneur-Lewton collaborations - the lack of monsters and the stylized use of suggested violence - are equally apparent in Tourneur's films before and after his work with Lewton. Mystery and sensuality were hallmarks of his style, and he possessed a highly artistic visual and aural style. This insightful critical study examines each of Tourneur's films, as well as his extensive work on MGM shorts (1936-1942) and in television. What em...

The name is French and it has connections to German expressionist cinema, but film noir was inspired by the American Raymond Chandler, whose prose was marked by the gripping realism of seedy hotels, dimly lit bars, main streets, country clubs, mansions, cul-de-sac apartments, corporate boardrooms, and flop houses of America. Chandler and the other writers and directors, including James M. Cain, Dashiell Hammett, Jane Greer, Ken Annakin, Rouben Mamoulian and Mike Mazurki, who were primarily responsible for the creation of the film noir genr...

Digital games have become an increasingly pervasive aspect of everyday life as well as an embattled cultural phenomenon in the twenty-first century. As new media technologies diffuse around the world and as the depth and complexity of gaming networks increase, scholars are becoming increasingly savvy in their approach to digital games. While aesthetic and psychological approaches to the study of digital games have garnered the most attention in the past, scholars have only recently begun to study the important social and cultural aspects o...

Since tabletop fantasy role-playing games emerged in the 1970s, fantasy gaming has made a unique contribution to popular culture and perceptions of social realities in America and around the world. This contribution is increasingly apparent as the gaming industry has diversified with the addition of collectible strategy games and other innovative products, as well as the recent advancements in videogame technology. This book presents the most current research in fantasy games and examines the cultural and constructionist dimensions of fant...

Many of today's hottest selling games - both non-electronic and electronic - focus on such elements as shooting up as many bad guys as one can (Duke Nuk'em), beating the toughest level (Mortal Kombat), collecting all the cards (Pokemon), and scoring the most points (Tetris). Fantasy role-playing games (Dungeons and Dragons, Rolemaster, GURPS), while they may involve some of those aforementioned elements, rarely focus on them. Instead, playing a fantasy role-playing game is much like acting out a scene from a play, movie or book, only witho...

Spaghetti Westerns--mostly produced in Italy or by Italians but made throughout Europe--were bleaker, rougher, grittier imitations of Hollywood Westerns, focusing on heroes only slightly less evil than the villains. After a main filmography covering 558 Spaghetti Westerns, another section provides filmographies of personnel--actors and actresses, directors, musical composers, scriptwriters, cinematographers. Appendices provide lists of the popular Django films and the Sartana films, a listing of U.S.-made Spaghetti Western lookalikes, top ...

Folktales and fairy tales are living stories; as part of the oral tradition, they change and evolve as they are retold from generation to generation. In the last thirty years, however, revision has become an art form of its own, with tales intentionally revised to achieve humorous effect, send political messages, add different cultural or regional elements, try out new narrative voices, and more. These revisions take all forms, from short stories to novel-length narratives to poems, plays, musicals, films and advertisements. The resulting ...

Buildings and their surrounding spaces influence the collective identity of an urban population. In turn, images of buildings in paintings and other artwork can reveal much about the character of a city. This richly illustrated text focuses primarily on Rome, Assisi, Siena and Florence from circa 1250 to circa 1390. It addresses four key issues in the study of change in architectural imagery and urban identity: 13th century Roman painting and its importance for 14th century painting in Tuscany; the Tuscan-Byzantine relationship from the mi...
