(P/B) Cinema '62
The Greatest Year at the Movies
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0040

Lawrence of Arabia, The Miracle Worker, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Manchurian Candidate, Gypsy, Sweet Bird of Youth, The Longest Day, The Music Man, What Ever Happened to Baby Jane, and more. Most conventional film histories dismiss the early 1960s as a pallid era, a downtime between the heights of the classic studio system and the rise of New Hollywood directors like Scorsese and Altman in the 1970s. It seemed to be a moment when the movie industry was floundering as the popularity of television caused a downturn in cinema attendance. Cin...

(P/B) Mainstreaming Gays
Critical Convergences of Queer Media, Fan Cultures, and Commercial Television
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0037

Mainstreaming Gays discusses a key transitional period linking the eras of legacy and streaming, analyzing how queer production and interaction that had earlier occurred outside the mainstream was transformed by multiple converging trends: the emergence of digital media, the rising influence of fan cultures, and increasing interest in LGBTQ content within commercial media. The U.S. networks Bravo and Logo broke new ground in the early 2000s and 2010s with their channel programming, as well as bringing in a new cohort of LGBTQ digital conte...

(P/B) Playful Frames
Styles of Widescreen Cinema
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0038

A widescreen frame in cinema beckons the eye to playfully, creatively roam. Such technology also gives inventive filmmakers room to disrupt and redirect audience expectations, surprising viewers through the use of a wider, more expansive screen. Playful Frames: Styles of Widescreen Cinema studies the poetics of the auteur-driven widescreen image, offering nimble, expansive analyses of the work of four distinctive filmmakers - Jean Negulesco, Blake Edwards, Robert Altman, and John Carpenter - who creatively inhabited the nooks and crannies ...

(P/B) There She Goes Again: Gender, Power, and Knowledge in Contemporary Film and Television Franchises
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0039

There She Goes Again interrogates the representation of ostensibly powerful women in transmedia franchises, examining how presumed feminine traits-love, empathy, altruism, diplomacy-are alternately lauded and repudiated as possibilities for effecting long-lasting social change. By questioning how these franchises reimagine their protagonists over time, the book reflects on the role that gendered exceptionalism plays in social and political action, as well as what forms of knowledge and power are presumed distinctly feminine. The franchises...

(P/B) DEMOCRACY ANCIENT AND MODERN
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0036

Western democracy is now at a critical juncture. Some worry that power has been wrested from the people and placed in the hands of a small political elite. Others argue that the democratic system gives too much power to a populace that is largely ill-informed and easily swayed by demagogues. This classic study of democratic principles is thus now more relevant than ever. A renowned historian of antiquity and political philosophy, Sir M.I. Finley offers a comparative analysis of Greek and modern conceptions of democracy. As he puts the anci...

(P/B) OTHERS' MILK
THE POTENTIAL OF EXCEPTIONAL BREASTFEEDING
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0035

Breastfeeding rarely conforms to the idealized Madonna-and-baby image seen in old artwork, now re-cast in celebrity breastfeeding photo spreads and pro-breastfeeding ad campaigns. The personal accounts in Others' Milk illustrate just how messy and challenging and unpredictable it can be-an uncomfortable reality in the contemporary context of high-stakes motherhood in which "successful" breastfeeding proves one's maternal mettle. Exceptional breastfeeders find creative ways to feed and care for their children-such as by inducing lactation, ...

(P/B) BLACK FEMALE SEXUALITIES
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0034

Western culture has long regarded black female sexuality with a strange mix of fascination and condemnation, associating it with everything from desirability, hypersexuality, and liberation to vulgarity, recklessness, and disease. Yet even as their bodies and sexualities have been the subject of countless public discourses, black women's voices have been largely marginalized in these discussions. In this groundbreaking collection, feminist scholars from across the academy come together to correct this omission - illuminating black female s...

NATURE'S BODY
GENDER IN THE MAKING OF MODERN SCIENCE
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0033

Winner of the Ludwik Fleck Book Prize, Society for Social Studies of Science, 1995 Eighteenth - century natural historians created a peculiar, and peculiarly durable, vision of nature - one that embodied the sexual and racial tensions of that era. When plants were found to reproduce sexually, eighteenth - century botanists ascribed to them passionate relations, polyandrous marriages, and suicidal incest, and accounts of steamy plant sex began to infiltrate the botanical literature of the day. Naturalists also turned their attention to the ...

(P/B) AMERICAN CINEMA OF THE 1930s
THEMES AND VARIATIONS
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0032

Probably no decade saw as many changes in the Hollywood film industry and its product as the 1930s did. At the beginning of the decade, the industry was still struggling with the transition to talking pictures. Gangster films and naughty comedies starring Mae West were popular in urban areas, but aroused threats of censorship in the heartland. Whether the film business could survive the economic effects of the Crash was up in the air. By 1939, popularly called "Hollywood's Greatest Year," films like Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz ...

(P/B) AMERICAN CINEMA OF THE 1970s
THEMES AND VARIATIONS
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0031

A smug glance at the seventies - he so-called "Me Decade" - unveils a kaleidoscope of big hair, blaring music, and broken politics - all easy targets for satire, cynicism, and ultimately even nostalgia. American Cinema of the 1970s, however, looks beyond the strobe lights to reveal how profoundly the seventies have influenced American life and how the films of that decade represent a peak moment in cinema history. Far from a placid era, the seventies was a decade of social upheavals. Events such as the killing of students at Kent State and...

(P/B) AMERICAN CINEMA OF THE 1960s
THEMES AND VARIATIONS
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0030

The profound cultural and political changes of the 1960s brought the United States closer to social revolution than at any other time in the twentieth century. The country fragmented as various challenges to state power were met with increasing and violent resistance. The Cold War heated up and the Vietnam War divided Americans. Civil rights, women's liberation, and gay rights further emerged as significant social issues. Free love was celebrated even as the decade was marked by assassinations, mass murders, and social unrest. At the same ...

(P/B) THE CHILD SAVERS
THE INVENTION OF DELINQUENCY
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0029

Hailed as a definitive analytical and historical study of the juvenile justice system, this 40th anniversary edition of The Child Savers features a new essay by Anthony M. Platt that highlights recent directions in the field, as well as a critique of his original text. Focusing on social reformers of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Platt's principal argument is that the "child savers" movement was not an effort to liberate and dignify youth but, instead, a punitive and intrusive attempt to control the lives of working-cl...

(P/B) GENDER / BODY / KNOWLEDGE
FEMINIST RECONSTRUCTIONS OF BEING AND KNOWING
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0016

The essays in this interdisciplinary collection share the conviction that modern western paradigms of knowledge and reality are gender-biased. Some contributors challenge and revise western conceptions of the body as the domain of the biological and 'natural, ' the enemy of reason, typically associated with women.

(P/B) BEYOND HEALTH, BEYOND CHOICE
BREASTFEEDING CONSTRAINTS AND REALITIES
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0028

Current public health promotion of breastfeeding relies heavily on health messaging and individual behavior change. Women are told that "breast is best" but too little serious attention is given to addressing the many social, economic, and political factors that combine to limit women's real choice to breastfeed beyond a few days or weeks. The result: women's, infants', and public health interests are undermined. Beyond Health, Beyond Choice examines how feminist perspectives can inform public health support for breastfeeding. Written by a...

(P/B) MAKING A PROMISED LAND
HARLEM IN TWENTIETH-CENTURY PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0027

Making a Promised Land examines the interconnected histories of African American representation, urban life, and citizenship as documented in still and moving images of Harlem over the last century. Paula J. Massood analyzes how photography and film have been used over time to make African American culture visible to itself and to a wider audience and charts the ways in which the "Mecca of the New Negro" became a battleground in the struggle to define American politics, aesthetics, and citizenship. Visual media were first used as tools for...

CONSUMING DESIRES, CONTESTED SELVES
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0026

Most research on female labor migration in Thailand focuses on that country's infamous sex industry. Mary Beth Mills offers the first extended ethnographic analysis of rural women's movement into less visible occupations, paying particular attention to the hundreds of thousands of young women who fill the factories and sweatshops of the Bangkok metropolis. Mills follows the women as they travel from the village of Baan Naa Sakae to Bangkok, where they encounter new forms of consumption, new "modern" lifestyles, and a new sense of identity....

(P/B) TRANSLATING CHILDHOODS
IMMIGRANT YOUTH, LANGUAGE, AND CULTURE
Εκδότης: RUTGERS UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3658-0025

"Though the dynamics of immigrant family life has gained attention from scholars, little isknown about the younger generation, often considered "invisible." Translating Childhoods, a unique contribution to the study of immigrant youth, brings children to the forefront by exploring the "work" they perform as language and culture brokers, and the impact of this largely unseen contribution. Skilled in two vernaculars, children shoulder basic and more complicated verbal exchanges for non-English speaking adults. Readers hear, through children...
