Description:
BRILL, 2015. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Bleich is first and foremost a halakhist, a master of Jewish law, but also a Jewish philosopher. Here, five of his essays cover the Halakhic process, life as an intrinsic value, moral debate and semantic sleight of hand, Judaism and natural law, and reflections. The notion of a Jewish philosophy, he says, means that Judaism has a faith-commitment to a particular philosophy or to a particular philosophical view directly based upon explicit dogmatic sources or upon authoritative tradition, or it might also mean that the philosophical position in question can be extrapolated from analyses of provisions of Halakhah, Jewish law.

Description:
Continuum Publishing Group, 2009. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. The introduction to this collection of essays on the writing of Nobel laureate J. M. Coetzee begins, curiously, with a defense of literary criticism and theory. Boehmer (literature, University of Oxford), Eaglestone (contemporary literate, Royal Holloway, University of London) and Iddiols (Royal Holloway, University of London) believe that the complexities of Goetzee's work, along with its relevance to world concerns, make literary exegesis of his fiction and non-fiction valuable. The book is divided into Context and Theory. The essays on context deal with literary influences on Coetzee as well as the effects of growing up in South Africa during Apartheid. The theory papers concentrate on aspects of the writing, such as desire, grief, gender identity, social outlook and cannibalism (both real and metaphorical). Those who wish a deeper understanding of Coetzee will find much here to intrigue them. (2009 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)

Emerald, 2020. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. This work is intended for postgraduate students and scholars in criminology, cultural criminology, critical criminology, phenomenology, and sociology. The book provides an accessible overview of the work of Jack Katz, a pioneering theorist in criminology, highlighting his development of alternative criminological perspectives, especially cultural criminology.

Chapters by international experts in criminology, sociology, criminal justice, and security studies address topics such as home-grown jihadis, narratives of violence by soldiers and police, excitement as an existential attraction of violent extremism, and the concept of righteous slaughter in the violence of perpetrators such as Dylann Roof and Nicholas Cruz.

Contemporary American philosopher Porter walks educated but non-specialist readers through a number of contrasting ideas and values, demonstrating ways to think and feel in order to choose between them or come to some other resolution. He begins by distinguishing polar opposites from points on a spectrum. Among his dualities are seeking truth or pursing happiness, individual rights and the common good, self-interest and self-sacrifice, men and women: categories or constructs, and trusting our senses or being rational.

Among other topics are the changing role of foreign trade, the Clinton administration's attempt to define a new approach to trade relations, the problem of overseas production, inflow from foreign direct investment, and parallels with Germany and the US.

McFarland, 2016. Paperback. New Book. Paperback. Vicari presents this monograph on Japanese film and its analysis of self and ego. The preface and introduction frame the book by posing the problem of Japanese film being analyzed by a Westerner; how much symbolic value could be missed, or misinterpreted, and yet how this puts the foreign observer in the position to absorb truly universal messaging or meta-messaging. Part one traces a cinematic ontology, discovering how cinema involves its viewers so as to create more than just the story depicted, but creating events in the mind and heart of the viewer that resonate according to the viewer's position with respect to Japan and Japanese symbolism. Part two delves into the negative and dissociative nature of identity, contrasting with Western positivism a view of reality in which spaces and potentialities are more real and more definite than what simply happens to be, and particularly how injury and trauma operate in such a world. Part three inspects the… Read more

Routledge, 2014. Hardbound. New Book. Hardbound. Citing Angola and Mozambique as case studies, Raposo (political science, Lusiada University, Portugal) explores how Japan has assisted previously war-torn African states move to peace, and demonstrates the role that human security has in ensuring sustainable development. He examines how the Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD) process is at the intersection of international relations and domestic decision-making, and asks: is it domestic changes or pressures from the international system that has increased aid? The author aims to shed new light on Japan's development assistance with Africa, specifically aid policy toward fragile and low-income countries during and after the Cold War (1950-2010), before and after TICAD. Eight chapters are divided into four parts: introduction; approaches to Africa and international relations (IR) theories; the TICAD process; and Japanese aid to Africa: case studies. The book targets students and… Read more
