Culture, Identity and Broadcasting in Ireland: local issues, global Perspectives
2 Culture, Identity and Broadcasting in Ireland: local issues, global Perspectives
Ireland Institute of Irish Studies, Queen's Universit 1991 0853894094 / 9780853894094 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
156 pages. Broadcasting plays a central role in promoting and defining notions of national and cultural identity. In Ireland, where identity and cultural tradition is an area of conflict and dispute, broadcasting plays this role in extremely difficult circumstances. However, the changing political configuration of Europe and the impact of new broadcasting technologies, as well as recent policy developments have profound implications for the relationship between broadcasting and notions of identity. This book records the proceedings of a symposium, sponsored by the Cultural Traditions Group and hosted by Media Studies at the University of Ulster, Coleraine, which looked at these questions in detail. In an introductory essay, ‘Inventions and Re-imaginings: Some thoughts on Broadcasting and Identity in Ireland‘, the conference organiser, Martin McLoone provides a challenging analysis of the historical context to these debates and offers his own thoughts on future developments. Martin McLoone is a Lecturer in Media Studies at the University of Ulster, Coleraine. His publications include Media Studies in Education (Dublin, 1983), and Television and Irish Society (edited with J. MacMahon; Dublin 1984).

Regional Planning in Australia: A History of Progress and Review of Regional Planning Activities Through the Commonwealth
8 Regional Planning in Australia: A History of Progress and Review of Regional Planning Activities Through the Commonwealth
Australia Commonwealth Department of Post-War Reconstruction 1949 1st Edition Hard Cover Very Good 8vo 
103 pages including a folded large coloured map of Australia. The Commonwealth of Australia first directed its attention toward regional Australia as a specific policy concern under PM John Curtin and the Minister for Post-War Construction and later PM Ben Chifley. Underlying socio-economic policy objectives included the utilisation of natural resources, defence imperatives and urban decentralisation. A plan for regional infrastructure and resource development arose through a series of Commonwealth/state conferences, culminating in 1949 with the publication of Regional Planning in Australia by the Commonwealth Department of Post-War Reconstruction. Under the CDPWR, the nation was divided into almost 100 regions leading to, in many instances, the establishment of ‘regional development committees’ (RDCs) that were expected to prepare resource inventories and regional plans ‘directed towards the full development of the region’s resources in order to maintain the maximum population. CONTENTS: PREFACE. PART ONE: CHAPTER ONE - THE GROWTH OF THE REGIONAL PLANNING ORGANIZATION. CHAPTER TWO - REGIONAL PLANNING ADMINISTRATION. CHAPTER THREE - SURVEYS AND PLANNING. PART TWO: CHAPTER FOUR - COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER FIVE - COMMONWEALTH - STATE PRO]ECTS. CHAPTER SIX - NEW SOUTH WALES. CHAPTER SEVEN - VICTORIA. CHAPTER EIGHT - QUEENSLAND. CHAPTER NINE - SOUTH AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER TEN - WESTERN AUSTRALIA. CHAPTER ELEVEN - TASMANIA.

Speaking of Siva
9 Speaking of Siva
U. K. Penguin 1973 0140442707 / 9780140442700 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Good 16mo 
199 pages translated and with an introduction by A.K. Ramanujan. Speaking of Siva / Shiva is a selection of vacanas or free-verse sayings from the Virasaiva religious movement, dedicated to Siva as the supreme god. Written by four major saints, the greatest exponents of this poetic form, between the tenth and twelfth centuries, they are passionate lyrical expressions of the search for an unpredictable and spontaneous spiritual vision of 'now'. Here, yogic and tantric symbols, riddles and enigmas subvert the language of ordinary experience, as references to night and day, sex and family relationships take on new mystical meanings. These intense poems of personal devotion to a single deity also question traditional belief systems, customs, superstitions, image worship and even moral strictures, in verse that speaks to all men and women regardless of class and caste. Shiva is usually worshiped in the aniconic form of Lingam.

175 pages. A lot of things have happened during the past few years. New media have become far more than just toys for nerds; they now have an impact on everybody's life to a greater extent than ever before - from the cell phone in your pocket and industries fighting to survive down to your old high-school friend you block on Facebook to prevent him from bothering you every time you're online. We're currently experiencing a time of change - a change during which a whole generation is evolving; this generation is growing up with an entirely new media behavior. It can't imagine a world without new media. Now, also, the marketing industry must adapt, since you can hardly reach this generation using means and methods from the past. This book helps traditional advertising and marketing people master the step into the digital era, providing tools to create campaigns that reach the people of today. It was not written by a CMO giving expensive seminars and presenting big theories with no solutions, but by a creative team dealing with and living the changes in media every day. The team, Innovative Thunder, specializes in innovative marketing and has gathered experience by working with three of the world's leading marketing agencies - Jung von Matt, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, as well as currently, R/GA, New York.

133 pages including b/w photos. Originally published under the title "Vom Ostseestrand in Fernes Land", this text was translated by the author with assistance of Tim Acker. Author's note: "This is not an absolutely exact translation of the original published in Germany. The publishers deleted a number of paragraphs, from the original manuscript some of which, I felt, should stay. I have, of course, adhered to thesequence of events, but occasionally added an explanatory word or sentence, at other times deleted this or that. All of this does in no way affect the overall story. The other difference between this and the original version is that in this translated version I have used actual names throughout, in the original version all family names were changed for privacy reasons, although most first names were not. Also, this translated version includes a few additional photos. Contents: This is how it all began - to 1939; Childhood by the sea - 1939-1945; Journey into the unknown - 1945-1946; Difficult beginnings - 1946-1950; The end of childhood - 1950-56; A voyage to America; What shall I do with the rest of my life? - 1956-1959; To the far end of the earth - 1959-1962; Christmas on the beach - 1962.

13 Aggleton, Peter Rebels Without a Cause? Middle Class Youth and the Transition from School to Work
U.S.A. Taylor & Francis 1987 1850002258 / 9781850002253 1st Edition Hard Cover Good 12mo 
159 indexed pages. Academic underachievement has long been of interest to teachers and educationalists, as have been the forms of ‘resistance’ employed by disaffected young people in schools and colleges. This book presents findings from a three - year ethnographic study of a group of ‘underachieving’ students in an English college of further education. It identifies patterns of cultural affirmation and ‘resistance’ amongst young people from new middle class backgrounds, and examines the relationship between these and the students’ home and out-of-college lives. The study also examines the consequences of new middle class youth cultural styles for the reproduction of class and gender relations, and raises questions about the radical significance, or otherwise, of middle class ‘resistance’ to schooling. Pictured is the title page of the book.

UK Rider 1978 0091347319 / 9780091347314 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
159 pages. "The most impressive fact in man's spiritual, intellectual, and poetic experience has always been ... the universal prevalence of those astonishing moments of insight which Richard Bucke called 'cosmic consciousness'" (in "This is it" first sentence). This book offers six essays, written between 1956 and 1960 which deal with the relationship between mystical experience and everyday life. The author claims that we need to disentangle ourselves from habits of speech and thought which make it impossible to see that everyday experience is the real thing. The title essay on cosmic consciousness includes the author's account of his own experiences in the inner realm. 'Instinct, Intelligence and Anxiety' is a study of the paradoxes of self - consciousness; Spirituality and Sensuality' presents a lively debate on the false opposition of spirit and matter; and 'The New Alchemy' gives a balanced account of the states of consciousness akin to spiritual experience. This collection also includes the text of the.author's celebrated pamphlet 'Beat Zen, Square Zen and Zen.'

Heroes and Exiles Gay Icons Through the Ages, Ambrose, Tom
16 Ambrose, Tom Heroes and Exiles Gay Icons Through the Ages
U. K. New Holland 2010 1847734685 / 9781847734686 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
216 indexed pages. Demonised by the Church throughout the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, homosexuals became the scapegoats of society, constantly facing exile or a brutal death. In "Heroes to Exiles", the human cost of this long exile is told through the lives of the most eminent homosexual men and women in history. Some were artists like the wild living Benvenuto Cellini or the repressed Edward Lear. Others were poets such as Thomas Gray, W. H. Auden or novelists such as Henry James and A. J. Symonds. Their places of refuge changed through the centuries from Italy in the 18th, to Paris in the 19th and Berlin, California and Tangier in the 20th. Some experiences were tragic, like those of William Beckford, Lord Byron or Oscar Wilde, and some were triumphant, like the remarkable story of the Ladies of Llangollen who became the most famous lesbians in Europe. Often treated with outright suspicion, homosexuals were targets for the totalitarian dictatorships of the 20th century. As such they were consigned in their tens of thousands to exile in Siberia or to the Nazi death camps. Even when peace returned after World War II most democracies still proscribed homosexual behaviour, forcing the Americans Paul Bowles and James Baldwin to seek exile in Europe and North Africa. Today the tolerance of Ancient Greece has returned to most Western societies although homosexuals are still persecuted in some Islamic countries such as Iran. In "Heroes to Exiles", Tom Ambrose asks if we have finally realised that sexual orientation is as irrelevant to character and achievement as gender and skin colour and if the long exile has ended.

255 pages. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and more. California as you've never seen it before. Award winning travel author Ann Rickard decided to take a road trip around California (with a small detour to Nevada and Las Vegas). With her husband Geoffrey they hire a car and explore the breadth and depth of this rich and fascinating American state: there's the gold country and cowboy towns, the glamour of Hollywood and the breathtaking nature of Yosemite, junk food and gourmet cuisine, the 800 miles (not kilometres) of beautiful coastline and, to the authors great relief and delight, a wine region. Ann declares at the outset that she likes America and Americans, and this is reflected in the narrative as she reveals the weird and wacky side of the Californian Dream with light-hearted insights and comical asides. Geoffrey, he of the ever-ready corkscrew, keeps a steady hand on the wheel as this road trip unravels. Follow the quintessential Aussie couple as they check out the biggest trees, the biggest sandwiches, the biggest houses and the biggest backsides on the planet. Yes, this is California, but not as you've seen it before.
