Smart Thinking: Skills for Critical Understanding and Writing, Allen, Matthew
1 Allen, Matthew Smart Thinking: Skills for Critical Understanding and Writing
Australia Oxford University Press 2012 0195517334 / 9780195517330 2nd Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xi + 193 pages including bibliography. For tertiary students. Smart Thinking: Skills for Critical Understanding and Writing is a practical, step-by-step guide to improving skills in analysis, critical thinking, and the effective communication of arguments and explanations. Accessible and straight forward in its style and goals, Smart Thinking is nevertheless based on strong epistemological foundations. It treats reasoning as an aspect of communication, rather than as an abstract exercise in logic, combining practical advice and theoretical rigour in a way that facilitates a deeper understanding of the processes of smart thinking without being confusing. The book not only provides detailed advice on how to practise better analytical skills, but also demonstrates how these skills can be used in research and writing. In particular, it stresses the vital importance of developing arguments and explanations that are internally coherent, and that take account of their audience and context. Divided into short, easily managed sections, the book is designed to meet the needs of under graduate students. It contains exercises and detailed answers to assist in self-learning, and includes an extensive glossary of concepts.

Apostolic grace is for every believer. This book seeks to equip you to receive a greater grace, and prepare you for the astounding days ahead.

Rhetorics of History: Modernity and Postmodernity (Papers of the Art Association of Australia - Volume II), Carr-Gregg, Michael
10 Carr-Gregg, Michael Rhetorics of History: Modernity and Postmodernity (Papers of the Art Association of Australia - Volume II)
Australia Art Association of Australia 1990 0959684360 / 9780959684360 1st Edition Stapled Cover Very Good 12mo 
67 pages. This volume is the second in a series of publications designed to bring the work of the conferences held annually by the Art Association of Australia to the attention of a wider audience for art. Sessions at these conferences function as forums for reflection on the assumptions about method we have in our work, whether it be historical, critical or practical. As the volume Practices of Criticism in Australia engaged with the writing of art criticism, so the session published here as Rhetorics of History was devoted to theories of history and problems in the historiography of art. Writing art history is an activity whose presuppositions are still insufficiently articulated. In writing, we activate a whole series of devices which have been developed over time and which help constitute the discursive parameters of art history as a discipline. The aim of these papers is partly to investigate such devices: models of change in history, concepts of periodization, the construction of canons of important artists, patterns of historical narrativization, and historical analyses indebted to sociology or psychoanalysis. Each of these papers in some way addresses that task of historical distinction which preoccupies many writers on the arts today: fleshing out what constitutes modernity or postmodernity, and investigating the relationship between them. My discussion of the modem/postmodern distinction serves as an introduction to various models of periodization and their historiographical implications. I suggest that we understand differing positions on the distinction between the modem and the postmodem as ways by which authors define themselves within the intellectual economy (extrapolating from the ideas of the sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, whose book Distinction served as the leitmotif of the AAA conference). Ian McLean then offers a discussion of ideas of modernism amongst Marxist critics of the 1930s; he revises conventional accounts of Clement Greenberg’s theories of history and modernist art in the light of parallel ideas held by his German contemporaries Walter Benjamin and Theodor Adomo. Terry Smith’s article (which was not a conference paper but was gratefully received for incorporation into this volume) focusses on the thought of Foucault in relation to concepts of modemity and, in particular, the relationship between surveillance and power in establishing the regime of visuality characteristic of the modem episteme. David Bennett, who writes from the perspective of a literary theorist, engages with two specific problems in the current theorization of postmodemism: the substitution of spatializing for temporal codes of cognition as constitutive conditions of postmodernity (as Jameson construes it), and consequent problems for Craig Owens’ reading of feminism as a model for postmodern criticality. Finally, Anne Marsh’s paper on performance an indicates symptomatic issues of historiography in the postmodern period: the status of the body, given the crisis of the humanist subject, and how an interpretative framework adequate to a history of performance might be found in Lacanian theory. All five papers have undergone rewriting in the light of comments by the editors and the other contributors. Contents: Modern/Postmodern: What is at Stake in Historical Distinction? by Roger Benjamin; Angel and Vise: Ideas of History in Marxist Modernism: Clement Greenberg, Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin by Ian McLean; Discourse and Desire: Foucault on Modernity and Visuality by Terry Smith; Periodizing the Postmodern/Spatializing the Posthistorical by David Bennett; Considering Performance Art The Absent Element - Fragments of History by Anne Marsh.

National Income and Social Accounts: An Australian Study, Downing, R.I.
15 Downing, R.I. National Income and Social Accounts: An Australian Study
Australia Melbourne Univ Pr 1967 10th Edition - Reprint Soft Cover Good 12mo 
102 + viii pages. This little text book, intended for university and senior school use, has again been revised, all figures being brought up to date and for the first time expressed in decimal currency. Appendix II has been re-written, as has much of chapter 6, which has a new section, International Statistics. The national accounts published in this edition were drawn from the White Paper on National Income and Expenditure 1965-66 published with the 1966-67 budget, and from the White Book on Australian National Accounts, 1948-49 to I964-65. The analysis of concepts and uses of social accounting is developed on the basis of a simplified model. The final chapter explains the full accounts and the relationship between the various items. Richard Ivan Downing (1915-1975), economist, was educated at state schools and (from 1928) at Scotch College, Hawthorn, in 1932 he won a scholarship to the University of Melbourne (B.A. Hons, 1935). His studies ranged across history, commerce and law, but centred on economics, an interest he 'accidentally stumbled into' in 1929 and had confirmed for him by his awareness of the Depression. His study of economics in Melbourne was enlivened by senior academics, most prominently(Sir) Douglas Copland and Lyndhurst Giblin, who participated in policy advice and public debate. Many people referred to him as one of the founders of the welfare state in Australia and to 'the singular warmth and force of his personality'. A fellowship in his memory was established at the University of Melbourne to bring international scholars in social economics to Australia. Scratches in the front cover. Some tanning.

Linguistics and the Novel, Fowler, Roger
17 Fowler, Roger Linguistics and the Novel
U. K. Methuen 1977 0416838308 / 9780416838305 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good Small 12mo 
145 indexed pages. Linguistics and the Novel breaks new ground in the criticism of ?ction. Modern critics agree that novels are primarily verbal creations ~ and the contemporary novel reflects this emphasis by drawing attention to its own linguistic techniques - but Roger Fowler ‘s book is the first serious attempt to apply linguistic methods to the structure of?ction. He demonstrates the relevance of linguistics in two areas. First, the theory of language provides a 'framework ‘or ‘model’ for the general structure of?ction, a way of understanding traditional concepts like ‘plot ‘, ‘theme’, ‘character’, ‘style ‘, ‘point of view'. Second, linguistics offers a method of analysis for practical criticism of actual texts. The approach is illustrated with reference to a wide variety of novelists, including Fielding, Sterne, Dickens, Thackeray, George Eliot, Henry james,joyce, Hemingway, D. H. Lawrence, Kingsley Amis, David Storey and Christine Brooke-Rose. Particular attention is paid to point of view and the attitudes and world-views of authors and characters to the ‘ideological ‘ dimensions of novels. Other topics discussed, in the light of linguistic theory, are the relationships between the novel and social structures, and the question of creativity and convention in ?ctional writing.

Art History and Class Struggle, Hadjinicolaou, Nicos
18 Hadjinicolaou, Nicos Art History and Class Struggle
UK Pluto Pr 1979 090438327X / 9780904383270 2nd Printing Soft Cover Good 12mo 
206 indexed pages including illustrations. Nicos Hadjinicolaou is a Greek art historian of Marxist-methodology and historian of visual ideology, known from this 1978 book "Art History and Class Struggle" in which he sets out to destroy the bland assumptions that art as well as art history flourish in an air-tight hot-house cut off from society, that there is no distinction between revolutionary and reactionary thinking about art. He introduces the concepts ideology and ideological class struggle into art history and elaborates on the notion of visual ideology in its critical and positive modes. He takes issue with the ‘liberal’ marxists who deny ‘cultural objects’ a class character and also with the dogmatic marxists who reduce every picture to the economic and political interests of a social class. In developing a definition of style which goes beyond the crude psychologism of most writing on the subject, Hadjinicolaou undertakes a detailed analysis of several classic paintings (Rembrandt, David and others). The large format of this well designed book is more attractive than usual academic publications. An interesting aspect of the layout is the way in which the many illustrations are concentrated on special pages grouped together, avoiding the spotty effect that occurs when they are scattered throughout the text. Nicos Hadjinicolaou was born in Salonica, Greece, in 1938. He studied art history at the universities of West Berlin, Freiburg and Munich, and continued his studies with Pierre Francastel, Lucien Goldmann and Pierre Vilar at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes in Paris.

Australia HI Profile Management 1993 0646122096 / 9780646122090 2nd Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
142 pages. Hansen's initial concepts about image were based on visual impact, but it didn't take Victoria long to realise that there was more to in?uencing other's impressions of her, than just dress and appearance. Whilst working with the Dept. of Education she began to notice that on the days she dressed more business like, gaining attention and co-operation from students and colleagues was much easier than on the days she dressed casually. Experimenting with this concept even further, Victoria found that she was able to predict the effects certain grooming, dress, voice quality and body language would have on her ability to communicate and in?uence the behaviour of people and the impressions they formed of her. As a young adult married to an air force pilot, she was required to attend and be involved in many military functions. Victoria became quite accustomed in all areas of social etiquette and entertaining that complex social protocol and understanding the subtle nuances of public behaviour became second nature. In 1987 she took her accumulated knowledge and experience and to the commercial business sector. She worked in a number of industries, always image - related, to refine her expertise before launching her own business as a consultant and presenter in Profile Management. Victoria works with many individuals on their personal profile development and presents regularly to corporate clients on all aspects of Business Communications, Profile Management and Personal Marketing. Victoria's passion and profession are one in the same. To help people and companies package and present themselvesin the best possible way to achieve their objectives. Her motto is simple: "If they don't like the messenger, they won't get the message."

Imaginative stories, clear pictures, practices in movement to illuminate the truth about numbers are all part of this ingenious little book! A good teacher would never lead a child to abstractions before allowing the child to experience the facts behind the abstractions first. This book helps bring those experiences alive in active arithmetic.
