Description:
Bloomsbury, 2018. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound.

He considers how popular music multimodally articulates meanings of politics and authenticity in Turkey from 2002 to the present, coinciding with considerable political and social upheaval. He discusses the core principles of critical discourse analysis and multimodal critical discourse studies within it, including the concepts of discourse and ideology and their use for theorizing music as a form of communication, how power relations are reproduced through communicative practices, the concept of recontextualization, and how multimodal critical discourse studies extends critical discourse analysis to the analysis of music, then reviews literature on the relationship between political music and political meaning.

De Gruyter, 2017. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Using findings of the many studies of the health impacts from the 1986 Chernobyl accident, a team and Ukrainian scientists grapple with the problem of estimating radiation risks as a result of the thyroid exposure to radioactive iodine. They focus primarily on the binary model of disease incidence in which the odds functions is linear in exposure dose. Their goal is to develop modern methods of risk analysis that would allow taking into consideration the many kinds of errors and uncertainties that have characterized the studies of radiation exposure and disease in the contaminated areas of Ukraine, Belarus, and Russia during the past 30 years.

Bloomsbury T&T Clark, 2019. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Missionaries in colonial India believed Roy's (1772-1833) booklet The Precepts of Jesus (1820) would be a tool for their work of converting Indians to Christianity, says Sugirtharajah, but it turned out to be toxic, challenging the version of Christianity they cherished and contesting its cardinal doctrines, effectively making Jesus a mere human being preaching morality. He emptied the text of all its fundamental tenets and dogmas, and reframed and reduced its essential teaching to a simple moral truth of love of God and love of one neighbor. He includes the text of the booklet. (2019 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Multilingual Matters, 2016. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Finnish and other European linguists explore linguistic variation and language endangerment as well as the sociopolitical and cultural contexts in which people use languages in the present-day world. They look at different multicultural and multilingual realms currently emerging in various minority language and culture communities and ask whether they portend an immense wave of language death, new remarkable linguistic variation, or both simultaneously. A central point is that, with urbanization, formal education, and other matters, speakers of minority languages live in very different circumstances than did earlier speakers.
