(H/B) HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY (VOLUME 29)
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0505

The common question from the western point of view is of the sort; why did China lose its early leadership of productive technologies to Europe during the early modern period? Answers to this seemingly clear enquiry vary from general cultural inwardness to the interferences of imperial governance. This collection surveys such theories but alters the issue by raising the notion that Chinese technologies did not so much fail as move along a path different from that of Europe. Our second collection on the Mindful Hand, also shifts common grou...

(H/B) HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY (VOLUME 30)
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0506

This book focuses on the development of four key issues in the development of modern Spain; knowledge, manufacturing, energy and telecommunications, and public works. If technology transfer from advanced nations to less developed systems always worked, then the whole world would now be rich. That this is not the case is so obvious, we might well expect that the history of the processes, successes and failures of technology transfer across nations would be a very well-established field of enquiry. In fact, the theme is still a developing on...

(H/B) HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY (VOLUME 31)
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0507

New work on early modern Europe has now opened up the hidden avenues that link changes of technologies with a complex of cognitive, institutional, spatial and cultural elements. It is true that all divisions of history wish to incorporate all other divisions unto themselves, but in the essays of our first collection there are specific cases and analyses clearly delineated to show how technologies and systems for the production, reproduction and representation of technological changes emerged out of fundamental aspects of European society a...

(H/B) HISTORY OF TECHNOLOGY (VOLUME 33)
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0509

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 ...

(P/B) THE LAST CHANCE
ROADS OF FREEDOM IV
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0429

The Last Chance brings to an English-speaking audience for the first time the unfinished fourth volume of Jean-Paul Sartre's hugely important Roads of Freedom cycle. Roads of Freedom is generally read and regarded as a trilogy, made up of Age of Reason, The Reprieve and Troubled Sleep. In fact, Sartre began a fourth volume and, although he never finished the work, two chapters, 'Strange Friendship' and 'Last Chance', were published in French by Gallimard after his death. Set in a German prisoner of war camp, these chapters continue the sto...

(H/B) PHILOSOPHY AND SIMULATION
THE EMERGENCE OF SYNTHETIC REASON
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0408

In this groundbreaking new book, Manuel Delanda analyzes all the different genres of simulation (from cellular automata and genetic algorithms to neural nets and multi-agent systems) as a means to conceptualize the possibility spaces associated with causal (and other) capacities. Simulations allow us to stage actual interactions among a population of agents and to observe the emergent wholes that result from those interactions. Simulations have become as important as mathematical models in theoretical science. As computer power and memory ...

(P/B) PATTI SMITH'S HORSES
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0497

Described as the perfect fusion of poetry and garage band rock and roll (the original concept was "rock and Rimbaud"), Horses belongs as much to the world of literary and cultural criticism as it does to the realm of musicology. While Horses pays homage to the record's origins in the nascent New York punk scene, the book's core lies in a detailed analysis of Patti Smith's lyrics and includes discussions of lyrical preoccupations: love, sex, gender, death, dreams, god, metamorphosis, intoxication, apocalypse and transcendence.

(P/B) HOW TO BE A CONSERVATIVE
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0488

What does it mean to be a conservative in an age so sceptical of conservatism? How can we live in the presence of our 'canonized forefathers' at a time when their cultural, religious and political bequest is so routinely rejected? With soft left-liberalism as the dominant force in Western politics, what can conservatives now contribute to public debate that will not be dismissed as pure nostalgia? In this highly personal and witty book, renowned philosopher Roger Scruton explains how to live as a conservative in spite of the pressures to e...

(P/B) DELEUZE AND GUATTARI'S A THOUSAND PLATEAUS
A READER'S GUIDE

A Thousand Plateaus is the engaging and influential second part of Capitalism and Schizophrenia, the remarkable collaborative project written by the philosopher Gilles Deleuze and the psychoanalyst Felix Guattari. This hugely important text is a work of staggering complexity that made a major contribution to contemporary Continental philosophy, yet remains distinctly challenging for readers in a number of disciplines. Deleuze and Guattari's 'A Thousand Plateaus': A Reader's Guide offers a concise and accessible introduction to this extreme...

(H/B) SCIENTIFIC DISCOURSE AND THE RHETORIC OF GLOBALIZATION
THE IMPACT OF CULTURE AND LANGUAGE
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0503

The rhetorical practices involved with the dissemination of scientific discourse are shifting. Addressing these changes, this book places the discourse of science in an increasingly multilingual and multicultural academic area. It contests monolingual assumptions informing scientific discourse, calling attention to emerging global discourses that make hybrids of the standard globalized and local academic English norms. English clearly has a hegemonic role as the lingua franca of global academia; this book conducts an intercultural rhetoric...

READINGS IN MODERN MUSIC
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0110

The groundbreaking Audio Culture: Readings in Modern Music maps the aural and discursive terrain of vanguard music today. Rather than offering a history of contemporary music, Audio Culture traces the genealogy of current musical practices and theoretical concerns, drawing lines of connection between recent musical production and earlier moments of sonic experimentation. It aims to foreground the various rewirings of musical composition and performance that have taken place in the past few decades and to provide a critical and theoretical ...

(H/B) THE POWER GAME OF BYZANTIUM
ANTONINA AND THE EMPRESS THEODORA
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0447

A fascinating exploration of the corridors of power in Byzantium of the time of Justinian (527-565), this book reveals how Empress Theodora and Antonina, both alumnae of the theatre, were remarkable examples of social mobility, moving into positions of power and influence, becoming wives of key figures. Theodora had three aims: to protect those Christians who would not accept the Chalcedonian Creed; to advance the careers of her family and friends; and to defend the poor and assist the defenceless and, in particular, women - a mission whic...

(P/B) TOM WAITS' SWORDFISHTROMBONES
Εκδότης: CONTINUUM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3966-0473

Two entwined narratives run through the creation of Swordfishtrombones and form the backbone of this book. As the 1970s ended, Waits felt increasingly constrained and trapped by his persona and career. Bitter and desperately unhappy, he moved to New York in 1979 to change his life. It wasn't working. But at his low point, he got the phone call that changed everything: Francis Ford Coppola tapped Tom to write the score for One From the Heart. Waits moved back to Los Angeles to work at Zoetrope's Hollywood studio for the next 18 months. He c...
