Edited By Clausen, Soren; Starrs, Roy and Wedell-Wedellsborg, Anne
Head of spine bumped with rubbing to corners of boards. This collection of 20 essays examines cultural encounters between - and within - China, Japan and the West. Rather than engaging in the theoretical debate of the cultural concepts as such, the authors present new research on a wide range of topics, from linguistics and literature to the worlds of sociology and political science. Despite the diversity of topics and approaches, the common focus is on the processes of cultural interaction and the dynamics of reception and communication. Celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Institute of East Asian Studies at the University of Aarhus, Denmark, this book includes contributions by scholars associated with the institute, as well as by scholars from Europe, America, China and Japan who have been temporarily attached to it. 496pp.

Graddol, David and Boyd-Barrett, Oliver
This volume is one of the four readers compiled as part of the course Language and Literacy (Code E825), which is one module of the (UK) Open University MA in Education programme. The collection of papers in this volume is the outcome of a collaboration between two editors: the first a linguist and the second a researcher in media studies. The papers reflect the growing convergence of the two disciplines in their treatment of the text. Analyses of film and television have for some time drawn on linguistics theory - particularly the structuralist model of language provided by Saussure. More recently, linguists have themselves developed and turned their attention to the kinds of text which pervade everyday life, and that has at last generated more principled accounts of the interaction between words and image, and more generally of the interplay and tension between verbal and non-verbal modes of meaning. This anthology is thus concerned with the complex ways in which texts communicate: at how the verbal and visual element of texts can be theorized within a linguistic framework; and at postmodern approaches which strive to "decanter" the text itself and explore the historical social contexts of their production and consumption. The collection should be of wide interest to students and researchers in linguistics, media studies, and communication. 282pp.

McNay, Lois
This book reassesses theories of agency and gender identity against the backdrop of changing relations between men and women in contemporary societies. McNay argues that recent thought on the formation of the modern subject offers a one–sided or negative account of agency, which underplays the creative dimension present in the responses of individuals to changing social relations. An understanding of this creative element is central to a theory of autonomous agency, and also to an explanation of the ways in which women and men negotiate changes within gender relations. 190pp. N.B.

Timoshenko, Alexandre
Protection of the human environment and sustainable development of the world increasingly manifest themselves through negotiation and enforcement of internationally agreed legal rules and standards. International environmental negotiation has become a common format to design norms that affect national and international legal orders and influence the behaviour of various stakeholders. Accordingly, international environmental negotiations attract multiple plays: from sovereign States to environmental NGOs, to the business community and civil society. The growing complexity of international environmental negotiations demands, in order to make the process effective, a comprehensive and adequate preparation of all actors. This handbook is designed as a single volume tool that equips participants of international environmental negotiations with a structured description and analysis of the negotiating process. All stages of the development of international environmental agreements are carefully followed, researched, commented on and illustrated with multiple documentary examples. The book traces the process from the pre-negotiation stage to actual implementation of the agreed regime. It also includes a large collection of essential international texts to be at hand for representatives at international environmental negotiations. 541pp.Includes CD.
