Four Honest Outlaws - Sala, Ray, Marioni, Gordon + Free DVD PDF Books

Four Honest Outlaws - Sala, Ray, Marioni, Gordon + Free DVD

In this strongly argued and characteristically original book, Michael Fried considers the work of four contemporary artists--video artist and photographer Anri Sala, sculptor Charles Ray, painter Joseph Marioni, and video artist and intervener in movies Douglas Gordon. He shows how their respective projects are best understood as engaging in a variety of ways with some of the core themes and issues associated with high modernism, and indeed with its prehistory in French painting and art criticism from Diderot on. Four Honest Outlaws thus continues the author's exploration of the critical and philosophical territory opened up by his earlier book, the magisterial Why Photography Matters as Art as Never Before. It presents a vision of the most important contemporary art as not only not repudiating modernism in the name of postmodernism in any of the latter's many forms and manifestations, but also actually as committed to dialectically renewing certain crucial qualities and values that modernism and premodernism brought to the fore, above all those of presentness and anti-theatricality.

Four Honest Outlaws takes its title from a line in a Bob Dylan song, "To live outside the law you must be honest," meaning in this case that each of the four artists has found his own unsanctioned path to extraordinary accomplishment, in part by defying the ordinary norms and expectations of the contemporary art world. Filled with stunning images throughout and accompanied by a DVD illustrating works by Sala and Gordon discussed in its pages, Four Honest Outlaws is sure to provoke controversy even as it makes a dramatic bid to further transform the terms in which the art of the present should be understood.

The Poetics of Empire in the Indies: Prophecy and Imitation in La Araucana and Os Lusiadas PDF Books

The Poetics of Empire in the Indies: Prophecy and Imitation in La Araucana and Os Lusiadas

In The Poetics of Empire in the Indies, James Nicolopulos investigates literary representations of sixteenth-century Iberian colonialism and imperialism by analyzing Alonso de Ercilla's La Araucana, a narrative poem that recounts the initial phases of the Spanish conquest of Chile in the mid-sixteenth century, and Luis de Camoens's Os Lus?adas, the epic celebration of early Portuguese maritime expansion in the Indian Ocean and beyond.Delving into the epic traditions of the Classical, Medieval, and Renaissance periods, Nicolopulos outlines practices of imitation within the two poems, focusing specifically on La Araucana's employment of epic models. Having made powerful connections to Ercilla's literary and critical predecessors, Nicolopulos demonstrates that the contemporaneous publication of Os Lus?adas further affected the content and presentation of La Araucana. In so doing, he elucidates the rivalries-poetic, political, commercial-between Spain and Portugal during this age of expansion. An investigation into imitation and representation in colonial texts, The Poetics of Empire in the Indies offers new connections between two early literary representations of Iberian imperialism.

Joseph Priestley and English Unitarianism in America PDF Books

Joseph Priestley and English Unitarianism in America

Many have argued that American Unitarianism originated solely from within Congregationalism and developed independent of outside influences. William Ellery Channing's "Unitarian Christianity" sermon in 1819 was a key moment in the history of the denomination, as Channing consciously sought to define the parameters of the faith and eliminate all vestiges of competing influences. Yet the American Unitarian tradition was far more complex than its nineteenth-century adherents were willing to admit. In Joseph Priestley and English Unitarianism in America, J. D. Bowers reexamines its origins, course, and development and subsequently reveals the extent to which Joseph Priestley's ideas concerning Congregational polity were recognized and established within the United States. In contrast to studies that simply trace the history of the denomination as it flows out of New England and is controlled by Bostonians, Bowers shows that Priestley's legacy grew in importance throughout the nineteenth century and held sway throughout many of the frontier regions of the nation. By discussing the complexity of interdenominational rivalry, lack of central control, and a continuous transatlantic exchange among religious liberals, he shows that English Unitarianism continued to serve as an essential and noteworthy foundation for subsequent developments within the American denomination as it endured the challenges of Protestant orthodoxy, unregulated liberalism, Transcendentalism, and the never-ending quest to define liberal religion in America. This is an insightful account of an often neglected set of tenets and developments in the denomination's history. It uniquely traces the course of continued English influence as it established a new point of reference for understanding the dynamic origins of denominational development, Unitarian thought, and liberal religion.

Modernizing Nature: Forestry and Imperial Eco-Development 1800-1950 PDF Books

Modernizing Nature: Forestry and Imperial Eco-Development 1800-1950

Modernizing Nature contributes to the debate regarding the origins, institutionalization, and politics of the sciences and systems of knowledge underlying colonial frameworks of environmental management. It departs from the widely prevalent scholarly perspective that colonial science can be understood predominantly as a handmaiden of imperialism. Instead, it argues that the myriad colonial sciences had ideological and interventionist traditions distinct from each other and from the colonial bureaucracy and that these tensions better explain environmental politics and policy dilemmas in the post-colonial era. Professor Rajan argues that tropical forestry in the nineteenth century consisted of at least two distinct approaches towards nature, resource, and people; and what won out in the end was the Continental European forestry paradigm. Rajan also shows that science and scientists were relatively marginal until the First World War. It was the acute scientific and resource crisis felt during the War, along with the rise of experts and expertise in Britain during that period and the lobby-politics of an organized empire-wide scientific community, that resulted in resource management regimes such as forestry beginning to get serious state backing. Over time, considerable differences in approach and outlook towards policy emerged between different colonial scientific communities, such as foresters and agriculturists. These different colonial sciences represented different situated knowledges, with different visions of nature, people, and empire, and in different configurations of power. Finally, in a panoramic overview of post-colonial developments, Rajan argues that the hegemony of these state-scientific regimes of resource-management during the period 1950-1990 engendered not just social revolt, as recent historical work has shown, but also intellectual protest. Consequently, the discipline of forestry became systematically re-conceptualized, with newapproaches to sylviculture, economics, law, and crucially, with new visions of modernity. This disciplinary change constitutes nothing short of a cognitive revolution, one that has been brought about by a clearly articulated political perspective on the orientation of the discipline of forestry by its practitioners.

Swat Madness and the Militarization of the American Police: A National Dilemma PDF Books

Swat Madness and the Militarization of the American Police: A National Dilemma

In the United States, military-style police enforcement is fast becoming the norm--even the smallest police departments now field costly SWAT units. While the fact that police forces have increased capabilities to deal with urgent or dangerous situations may seem positive, this type of aggressive response is problematic; court settlements regarding excessive SWAT raids cost law enforcement agencies millions of dollars every year, not to mention that these brute-force strategies often traumatize, injure, and kill innocent people.

This book takes an unprecedented look into the realities of zero-tolerance, militaristic policing, the tactics and equipment used, the problematic "crime warrior" mindset at play, and the statistical evidence of its ineffectiveness. The author's professional experience in criminology and scholarly knowledge of the topic enables him to candidly address common concerns about utilizing paramilitary law enforcement and special weapons and tactics (SWAT) units in routine, low-risk police work, such as the general loss of freedom, the often tragic results of excessive force, and the effects on race relations.

Comparative Corporate Goverance: The State of the Art and Emerging Research PDF Books

Comparative Corporate Goverance: The State of the Art and Emerging Research

This book comprises a comprehensive survey of the state of the art and the most recent research being done on corporate governance in the triad - Europe (with particular emphasis on Germany and the UK), the US and Japan. The comparative nature of the research brings forth new insights which studies conducted within one system may fail to produce. Analysis of the most successful economies - the US, Europe and Japan - is a natural starting point for such research. In addition, it is increasingly accepted that the analysis of institutions must also consider their roots, which can be both revealing and decisive when considering both current issues and the future (path dependence). The contributors to this volume represent a unique sample of scholars from the throughout triad and across disciplines. Contributions from economists, law professors, historians and a few practitioners are successfully combined. The volume has three parts: the first of which deals with the roots and perspectives of corporate governance. The second part analyses the different building blocks of a corporate governance system, while the final part presents studies that treat corporate governance systems in toto, with a special focus on making or facilitating comparative corporate governance research.

Sexual Chemistry: A History of the Contraceptive Pill PDF Books

Sexual Chemistry: A History of the Contraceptive Pill

Heralded as the catalyst of the sexual revolution and the solution to global overpopulation, the contraceptive pill was one of the twentieth century's most important inventions. It has not only transformed the lives of millions of women but has also pushed the limits of drug monitoring and regulation across the world. This deeply-researched new history of the oral contraceptive shows how its development and use have raised crucial questions about the relationship between science, medicine, technology, and society. Lara Marks traces the scientific origins of the pill to Europe and Mexico in the early years of the twentieth century, challenging previous accounts that championed it as a North American product. She explores the reasons why the pill took so long to be developed and explains why it did not prove to be the social panacea envisioned by its inventors. Unacceptable to the Catholic Church, rejected by countries such as India and Japan, too expensive for women in poor countries, it has, more recently, been linked to cardiovascular problems. Reviewing the positive effects of the pill, Marks shows how it has been transformed from a tool for the prevention of conception to a major weapon in the fight against cancer.

Environmental Policy in New Zealand: The Politics of Clean and Green? PDF Books

Environmental Policy in New Zealand: The Politics of Clean and Green?

Since the mid 1980s, environmental policy has had an especially high profile in New Zealand politics. New Zealand has taken the initiative in promoting strong measures that deal with global warming, nuclear issues, ozone depletion, driftnet fishing, and the protection of Antarctica. This book provides the first systematic and critical analysis of environmental policy in New Zealand based on concepts and theories from the fields of environmental politics research and public policy studies. It assesses the strengths and weaknesses of New Zealand's environmental policies with respect to four recurring themes: the need for anticipatory policy making; the need to change our ways; the need for institutional reform to enhance policy performance; and the need for more integrated and comprehensive policy. Given that New Zealand is a widely perceived and self-promoted "clean and green" country, its environmental policies are of special international significance and interest.
