Bonnie and Clyde is a 1967 American crime film about Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the bank robbers who operated in the central United States during the Great Depression. The film was directed by Arthur Penn, and stars Warren Beatty as Clyde Barrow and Faye Dunaway as Bonnie Parker. The screenplay was written by David Newman and Robert Benton, with Robert Towne and Beatty providing uncredited contributions to the script. Bonnie and Clyde is considered a landmark film, and is regarded as one of the first films of the New Hollywood era, in that it broke many taboos and was popular with the younger generation. Its success motivated other filmmakers to be more forward about presenting sex and violence in their films. Bonnie and Clyde received Academy Awards for "Best Supporting Actress" (Estelle Parsons) and "Best Cinematography" (Burnett Guffey), and was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

“Undoubtedly the most comprehensive analysis of the role of culture and emergent practices in capacity building currently at hand. d’Estrée and Parsons have produced a commendable amalgamation and scrutiny of local, cultural, and Indigenous mediation practices in a number of contexts that empower local people while interacting and integrating with Western mediation models in a blend of hybridity. The book is beautifully structured and will attract a wide readership including graduate and undergraduate students.” —Sean Byrne, Director, Arthur V. Mauro Centre for Peace & Justice, and Professor, Peace & Conflict Studies, University of Manitoba, Canada“Since late 1990s conflict resolution field has recognized the need to integrate culture in its processes. This book goes beyond such theoretical recognition and provides empirical evidence and solid concrete cases on how local actors from a wide range of cultural contexts integrated their cultural analysis and tools in their own sustainable conflict resolution processes. It also offers an effective set of guidelines and lessons learned for policy makers and peacebuilding practitioners on the need to deepen their reliance on local cultural practices of peace.” —Mohammed Abu-Nimer, Professor of International Peace and Conflict Resolution, School of International Service, American University, and Founder and Director of the Salam: Peacebuilding and Justice Institute in Washington, DC, USA“The evolving identities of communities impacted by deep historical divisions and population migration, in the context of life threatening resource shortages, present opportunities and challenges for conflict transformation professionals at every level. d'Estrée and Parsons respond to this challenge with a remarkable collection of stories from around the world that amplify the innovation in the field while capturing its history and complexity. It serves as the bridge between mediation and peacebuilding that is so necessary today.”—Prabha Sankaranarayan, CEO, Mediators Beyond Borders International “In this excellent book, Tamra Pearson d’Estrée and Ruth Parsons (and their impressive collection of case study authors) have analysed four generations of conflict resolution/transformation theory and practice. They highlight the diverse ways in which the burgeoning field of conflict resolution theorists and practitioners mirrored the ascendance and now decline of the neo-liberal western project. First and second generation efforts were based on notions of possessive individualism, rational choice theory and a general acceptance of the status quo. Culture was ignored or eliminated as were deeper questions of political and social inequality. But more importantly, there was an unwillingness to consider the power and the wisdom that resided in locality.  Third and fourth generation conflict transformers, on the other hand, have engaged these deeper questions and focused more attention on emancipatory creative partnerships, social and economic justice, co-learning and hybridised models flowing from external engagement with local wisdom.  This is a book that needs to be read by anyone interested in the transformative power of conflict resolution and long term social and political change.” —Kevin P Clements, Professor, Chair and Foundation Director, The National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, University of Otago, New ZealandWhile waves of scholarship have focused either on the value of presumed universal models or of traditional practices of conflict resolution, curiously missing has been the recognition and analysis of the actual intermingling and interacting of western and local cultural practices that have produced new and emergent practices in our global community.  In this compilation of case studies, the authors describe partnerships forged between local practice expertise and bearers of “western/institutional” models to build innovative approaches to mediation and conflict resolution. Including stories of these experiences and the resulting hybrid models that emerged, the book explores central questions of cultural variation and integration, such as the perception of purpose and function of resolution processes, attitudes toward conflict, arenas and timeframes, third party roles, barriers to process use, as well as how to remain true to culture and context.  It also examines partnership dynamics and lessons learned for modern cross-cultural collaboration.

zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Klassiker und Theorierichtungen, Note: 2,3, Technische Universität Chemnitz (Institut für Soziologie), Veranstaltung: Neuere Theorien, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Wie kam es zu autoritären und faschistischen Regimen in vielen Teilen Europas nach der Weltwirtschaftskrise 1929, wo doch Marx prophezeite, dass sich die Proletarier nach einer weltweiten Krise des Kapitalismus erheben werden? Die Antwort auf diese Frage sollten die Vertreter der Kritischen Theorie liefern. Habermas der als wichtigster Vertreter der 'jüngeren Generation' der Kritischen Theorie gehandelt wird greift das zentrale Thema, die Verbindung von Theorie und Praxis auf, doch das Interessante und Neue an seinem gesellschaftskritischen Theoriegebilde ist, dass an die Stelle der Versöhnung zwischen dem menschlichen Denken und seiner Umwelt bei ihm die Verständigung und somit die Untersuchung der Sprache und Kommunikation zum zentralen Thema wird. 'Da der Sprache selbst das Ziel der Verständigung innewohnt, sieht er die Massstäbe der Vernunft im kommunikativen Handeln verankert'. Das Verhältnis von Theorie und Praxis möchte er nun in seiner gesellschaftskritischen 'Theorie des kommunikativen Handelns' klären, dabei knüpft er bewusst auch an Begriffe und Grundannahmen anderer Theoretiker wie Marx, Parsons, Weber, Durkheim und andere an, wobei er diese Theorien stets nach einem Beitrag zu seiner Theorie auswertet.. Ein weiteres Ziel ist die Verbindung von Handlungs- und Systemtheorie. Dies erreicht er auf Grund der Konzipierung der Gesellschaft als System und Lebenswelt, dabei wird die Lebenswelt zum vermittelnden Faktor zwischen Sprache und Gesellschaft.Im weiteren Verlauf seines Theoriekonzeptes gelangt Habermas zu der Schlussfolgerung, dass Verständigung in modernen Gesellschaften nicht immer reibungslos verlaufen kann und die Lebenswelt in ihrer Reproduktion erheblichen Störungen unterliegen kann. Die Frage mit der ich mich nun auseinander setze ist, wie Habermas von den Begriffskonstrukten System und Lebenswelt zur Kolonialisierungsthese gelangt.

William Parsons, 3rd Earl of Rosse
35,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book provides the first comprehensive biographical account of the Third Earl of Rosse. A remarkable man, he was a resident landlord and a key member of the Protestant ascendancy in nineteenth-century Ireland before, during and after the devastating Irish famine of the 1840s. He has received lasting fame as the builder of Birr Castle in County Offaly, where he constructed enormous reflecting telescopes which allowed the recognition for the first time of the spiral shape of some galaxies. As well as giving a comprehensive account of the engineering genius the astronomical achievements of the Earl and his assistants, the book reveals new details about his other key roles, not only in the local community at Birr, but in the Royal Society, of which he was president from 1848-54, in the British Association for the Advancement of Science, and in various political and administrative structures in Ireland. This volume also sheds new light on the family life of the Earl and Countess, whose children included Sir Charles Parsons, the inventor of the steam turbine engine, which revolutionised electricity generation and marine transport. The Countess' own pioneering achievements in photography are detailed here alongside reproductions of her work. With chapters from an international selection of distinguished contributors, this book will interest a wide readership, particularly historians of nineteenth-century British and Irish science, astronomy and photography, and those studying nineteenth-century Irish history.

Herbert Spencer's Sociology

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The republication of this book is eminently ¬tting at this time. Jay Rumney's Herbert Spencer's Sociology ¬rst appeared in 1937. In that year Talcott Parsons, citing Crane Brinton, declared: 'Spencer is dead. But who killed him and how?' It was the thesis of Parsons' famous The Structure of Social Action that the evolution of scienti¬c theory had put an end to Spencer. For more than a generation the man whose name had been synonymous with sociology was, or so it seemed, repressed and forgotten.

Off the Wall: A Portrait of Robert Rauschenberg
45,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Calvin Tomkins first discovered the work of Robert Rauschenberg in the late 1950s, when he began to look seriously at contemporary art. While gazing at Rauschenberg's painting 'Double Feature,' Tomkins felt compelled to make some kind of literal connection to the work, and it is in that sprit that 'for the last forty years it's been [his] ambition to write about contemporary art not as a critic or a judge, but as a participant.' Tomkins has spent many of those years writing about Robert Rauschenberg, whom he rapidly came to see as 'one of the most inventive and influential artists of his generation.' So it seemed natural to make Rauschenberg the focus of 'Off the Wall,' which deals with the radical changes that have made advanced visual art such a powerful force in the world. 'Off the Wall' chronicles the astonishingly creative period of the 1950s and 1960s, a high point in American art. In his in his collaborations with Merce Cunningham and John Cage, and as a pivotal figure linking abstract expressionism and pop art, Rauschenberg was part of a revolution during which artists moved art off the walls of museums and galleries and into the center of the social scene. Rauschenberg's vitally important and productive career spans this revolution, reaching beyond it to the present day. Featuring the artists and the art world surrounding Rauschenberg--from Jackson Pollock, and Willem de Kooning to Jasper Johns, Frank Stella, and Andy Warhol, together with dealers Betty Parsons, and Leo Castelli, and the patron Peggy Guggenheim--Tomkins's stylish and witty portrait of one of America's most original and inspiring artists is fascinating, enlightening, and very entertaining.

From Doon with Death: The First Inspector Wexfo...
15,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Dazzling psychological suspense. Razor-sharp dialogue. Plots that catch and hold like a noose. These are the hallmarks of crime legend Ruth Rendell, 'the best mystery writer in the English-speaking world' (Time magazine). From Doon with Death, now in a striking new paperback edition, is her classic debut novel-and the book that introduced one of the most popular sleuths of the twentieth century. There is nothing extraordinary about Margaret Parsons, a timid housewife in the quiet town of Kingsmarkham, a woman devoted to her garden, her kitchen, her husband. Except that Margaret Parsons is dead, brutally strangled, her body abandoned in the nearby woods. Who would kill someone with nothing to hide? Inspector Wexford, the formidable chief of police, feels baffled -- until he discovers Margaret's dark secret: a trove of rare books, each volume breathlessly inscribed by a passionate lover identified only as Doon. As Wexford delves deeper into both Mrs. Parsons' past and the wary community circling round her memory like wolves, the case builds with relentless momentum to a surprise finale as clever as it is blindsiding. In From Doon with Death, Ruth Rendell instantly mastered the form that would become synonymous with her name. Chilling, richly characterized, and ingeniously constructed, this is psychological suspense at its very finest. Praise for From Doon with Death 'One of the most remarkable novelists of her generation.'-People 'She has transcended her genre by her remarkable imaginative power to explore and illuminate the dark corners of the human psyche.'-P.D. James
