Book Synopsis Late Cold War Literature and Culture by : Daniel Cordle
Download or read book Late Cold War Literature and Culture written by Daniel Cordle and published by Springer. This book was released on 2017-03-03 with total page 229 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book analyses the 1980s as a nuclear decade, focusing on British and United States fiction. Ranging across genres including literary fiction, science fiction, post-apocalyptic fiction, graphic novels, children’s and young adult literature, thrillers and horror, it shows how pressing nuclear issues were, particularly the possibility of nuclear war, and how deeply they penetrated the culture. It is innovative for its discussion of a “nuclear transatlantic,” placing British and American texts in dialogue with one another, for its identification of a vibrant young adult fiction that resonates with more conventionally studied literatures of the period and for its analysis of a “politics of vulnerability” animating nuclear debates. Placing nuclear literature in social and historical contexts, it shows how novels and short stories responded not only to nuclear fears, but also crystallised contemporary debates about issues of gender, the environment, society and the economy.

Book excerpt: "Unsparing but ultimately hopeful, this elegiac novel, set in the near future, traces the first generations to survive nuclear war and ensuing plagues. Writer Mary Hope and Rachel Morrow, a painter, eke out a meager existence at a farm on the Oregon coast. As they struggle through the Long Winter following the End, as the nuclear disaster is simply called, their desolation is succeeded by a determination to collect and preserve for a new civilization the great books of Western culture. Down the coast is another set of survivors, the Arkites, a fundamentalist group that denies all knowledge not contained in the Bible. Mary marries and briefly joins the Arkites but leaves after the leader calls Rachel a witch. Years later, when plague strikes the Arkites, Mary agrees to take in the few survivors on condition that she be allowed to educate the children as she sees fit. A bitter struggle develops between Mary and a strong-willed young Arkite for the minds of the children, particularly the boy destined to lead the next generation."--

Book Synopsis Apocalyptic Ecology in the Graphic Novel by : Clint Jones
Download or read book Apocalyptic Ecology in the Graphic Novel written by Clint Jones and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2020-03-16 with total page 189 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As awareness of climate change grows, so do the number of cultural depictions of environmental disaster. Graphic novels have reliably produced dramatizations of such disasters. Many use themes of dystopian hopefulness, or the enjoyment readers experience from seeing society prevail in times of apocalypse. This book argues that these generally inspirational narratives contribute to a societal apathy for real-life environmental degradation. By examining the narratives and art of the environmental apocalypse in contemporary graphic novels, the author stands against dystopian hope, arguing that the ways in which we experience depictions of apocalypse shape how we respond to real crises.
Download or read book Armageddon Now written by Jim Willis and published by Visible Ink Press. This book was released on 2005-09-01 with total page 464 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Who knew that doomsday would be so hot? Environmental disasters, Ebola outbreaks, the popularity of reality television, and strife in the Middle East, may all be signs that time has come today. Weak and ailing after the end of the Cold War and the financial spree of the nineties, the timeless notion that the end is near is once again exerting a powerful influence on pop culture, politics, religion, and Mel Gibson. Omens and prophecies, asteroids collisions and nuclear war, oil crises and global warming, fire or ice, bang or whimper, asteroid or alien, act of God or human folly, Armageddon Now: The End of the World A to Z is all over doomsday prophecies. From alpha to omega, it is packed with 200 entries and 100 illustrations. Satan, saints, survivalists, and evangelical preachers known for their views on Biblical prophecies receive their due. In the end, the end has never been so thoroughly covered as in Armageddon Now. It's the last word for the end user. So, don't be left behind. Save yourself by buying this book.
Book Synopsis Willy Brandt and International Relations by : Bernd Rother
Download or read book Willy Brandt and International Relations written by Bernd Rother and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2018-11-15 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While there are many books that deal with Brandt's foreign policy as West German Chancellor, Willy Brandt and International Relations is the only book to deal with Brandt's politics as elder statesman between 1974 and 1992. The editors have assembled a group of authors from Germany, the USA, Latin America and Europe to assess Brandt's important role in global affairs during the waning decades of the Cold War. The chapters follow Brandt beyond his resignation as Chancellor in 1974, after which he continued his position as chairman of Social Democratic party and became chairman of the Socialist International. His international politics were above all focused on Europe, Latin America and the United States. He was keen on finding new partners in the 'Third World' such as Latin America and the Caribbean, leading to conflicts with the U.S. administration which caused problems for West German foreign policy. The authors also examine global challenges that occurred after 1989, such as Brandt's handling of German unification, the Kuwait crisis of 1991 and the first Gulf War. Willy Brandt and International Relations provides a new perspective on decades of Cold War relations and beyond through the work of an influential statesman and political thinker. It is an illuminating book for students and scholars of the Cold War and international relations.

Book Synopsis The Four Horses of the Apocalypse by : Benjamin Dock Jr.
Download or read book The Four Horses of the Apocalypse written by Benjamin Dock Jr. and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2022-08-01 with total page 231 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The sentiment as the book closes packed with information breathed into heart and mind is to desire you have found our Lord to be honest and full of love toward his creation. He honestly informs us of the end coming as the church prepared for her resurrection trumpet to sound. The scriptures pertaining to the first three and a half years of seven-week years of Daniel is so full of imagery and the conclusion must have had many words taken from imagery through visions that are hard to understand. Consequently, the same vision of John's revelation are written plainly and simple, rolling up all of Daniel's entities into two basic ones. One is the appearance of the beast out of the sea having seven heads and ten horns are both the Antichrist and beast. Secondly, the beast out of the land is the false prophet sent for the destruction of Israel. The scarlet woman is Jerusalem or Babylon. That is pretty much it made simple so any one reading should comprehend the book. Those who read and study the book of Revelation are offered salvation through Christ as one finishes the book. As well, those who miss the catching away of the bride of Christ will need the information written in God's word. Not much mention of this by modern ministers. You will need information written in my book in order to find your way through the maze and obey the only promise through the terrible times coming on the world for the safety of your soul! Not only do you have to refrain from the 666 mark and the worship of the beast you must also obey the "everlasting gospel" Jesus teaches in Mathew 25:31""46. Evidently with so many failures of souls saved during the first half, God sends an angel close to the first half ending of tribulation to announce the everlasting gospel. Many people have hoarded food and other supplies but are only concerned with themselves. It must have been that many people were unaware of this sheep and goat judgment in force. Those who will not share with folks in need are goats and will be cast out of the kingdom. You survived the 666 mark and the beast worship but failed to share! God help you!

Book Synopsis New Arctic Cinemas by : Scott MacKenzie
Download or read book New Arctic Cinemas written by Scott MacKenzie and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 2023 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For centuries, the Arctic was visualized as an unchanging, stable, and rigidly alien landscape, existing outside twenty-first-century globalization. It is now impossible to ignore the ways the climate crisis, expanding resource extraction, and Indigenous political mobilization in the circumpolar North are constituent parts of the global present. New Arctic Cinemas presents an original, comparative, and interventionist historiography of film and media in twenty-first-century Scandinavia, Greenland, Russia, Canada, and the United States to situate Arctic media in the place it rightfully deserves to occupy: as central to global environmental concerns and Indigenous media sovereignty and self-determination movements. The works of contemporary Arctic filmmakers, from Zacharias Kunuk and Alethea Arnaquq-Baril to Amanda Kernell and Inuk Silis Høegh, reach worldwide audiences. In examining the reach and influence of these artists and their work, Scott MacKenzie and Anna Westerstahl Stenport reveal a global media system of intertwined production contexts, circulation opportunities, and imaginaries--all centering the Arctic North.
Book Synopsis Science at the Bar by : Sheila Jasanoff
Download or read book Science at the Bar written by Sheila Jasanoff and published by Harvard University Press. This book was released on 2007-09-30 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Issues spawned by the headlong pace of developments in science and technology fill the courts. How should we deal with frozen embryos and leaky implants, dangerous chemicals, DNA fingerprints, and genetically engineered animals? The realm of the law, to which beleaguered people look for answers, is sometimes at a loss—constrained by its own assumptions and practices, Sheila Jasanoff suggests. This book exposes American law’s long-standing involvement in constructing, propagating, and perpetuating a variety of myths about science and technology. Science at the Bar is the first book to examine in detail how two powerful American institutions—both seekers after truth—interact with each other. Looking at cases involving product liability, medical malpractice, toxic torts, genetic engineering, and life and death, Jasanoff argues that the courts do not simply depend on scientific findings for guidance—they actually influence the production of science and technology at many different levels. Research is conducted and interpreted to answer legal questions. Experts are selected to be credible on the witness stand. Products are redesigned to reduce the risk of lawsuits. At the same time the courts emerge here as democratizing agents in disputes over the control and deployment of new technologies, advancing and sustaining a public dialogue about the limits of expertise. Jasanoff shows how positivistic views of science and the law often prevent courts from realizing their full potential as centers for a progressive critique of science and technology. With its lucid analysis of both scientific and legal modes of reasoning, and its recommendations for scholars and policymakers, this book will be an indispensable resource for anyone who hopes to understand the changing configurations of science, technology, and the law in our litigious society.
Book Synopsis The Music and Art of Radiohead by : Joseph Tate
Download or read book The Music and Art of Radiohead written by Joseph Tate and published by Taylor & Francis. This book was released on 2023-04-21 with total page 223 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Music and Art of Radiohead provides compelling close readings of the English band's music, lyrics, album cover art and music videos as well as critical commentary on interviews, reviews and the documentary film Meeting People is Easy. Established and emerging academic scholars engage with Radiohead's music and art via concerns of broader implication to contemporary cultural studies. Topics range from the band's various musical and multivalent social contexts to their contested situation within a global market economy; from asking the question, 'how free is art?' to considering the band's musical influences and radical sonic explorations. Together, the essays form a comprehensive discussion of Radiohead's entire oeuvre, from Pablo Honey to Hail to the Thief, with a special focus on the critically acclaimed best-selling albums Kid A and Amnesiac.
Book Synopsis A Bloody and Barbarous God by : Petra Mundik
Download or read book A Bloody and Barbarous God written by Petra Mundik and published by University of New Mexico Press. This book was released on 2016-05-15 with total page 440 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Bloody and Barbarous God investigates the relationship between gnosticism, a system of thought that argues that the cosmos is evil and that the human spirit must strive for liberation from manifest existence, and the perennial philosophy, a study of the highest common factor in all esoteric religions, and how these traditions have influenced the later novels of Cormac McCarthy, namely, Blood Meridian, All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing, Cities of the Plain, No Country for Old Men, and The Road. Mundik argues that McCarthy continually strives to evolve an explanatory theodicy throughout his work, and that his novels are, to a lesser or greater extent, concerned with the meaning of human existence in relation to the presence of evil and the nature of the divine.
