Claudia Jones was a smart, politically wise, brilliant, transnational feminist, Pan African theorist and cultural activist who initiated political ideas and strategies that are now seen as a necessary way of intersecting a variety of political fields and positions. Known as the founder of the first London carnival and the editor of the first black newspaper, her activism bridged the black world politics of decolonisation and contemporary community empowerment. For the first time, her essays, poetry and writings are here brought together.

The collapse of the totalitarian system and the disintegration of the Soviet Union took the West by complete surprise. For many years Western co-operation and West European integration proceeded on the assumption that the division of Europe and Germany would be there to stay.

This book provides a critical and context-sensitive reading of corporeality in the narrative fiction of Merce Rodoreda, through the perspectives of art and film theory, feminism, literary criticism, spatial studies, and nationalist theory. The text approaches Rodoreda as a Catalan woman writer whose work engages with and explores formulaic and normative notions of the gendered body in a particular cultural, geographical and political space. The study covers four main areas: corporeality as surface, image and texture; the relationship between the body and space; the idea of the culturally and politically constructed body as limit; and the concept of the abject or open body. The author places Rodoreda's work in dialogue with a range of texts, media, modes of representation and discourses in order to examine how her artistic vision is both integrated with and a mediator of material experience in the twentieth century."

The revolution of 1989 in Eastern Europe fundamentally changed the political, economic and military landscape of Europe and the world. The security framework which provided peace and security in Europe since the end of World War II appears to be collapsing. Europe is free falling toward the 21st century without a clear image of the security structure for the future. This paper examines the current security framework for Europe, including the historical context upon which it was built. The author then forecasts a vision of the initial decades of the 21st Century in Europe, and examines U.S. national security interests in that period. Based upon this vision of the future, the paper critically examines national security policies and strategies. The author recommends new policies to replace containment, deterrence and flexible response as well as a new security framework for Europe in the 21st century.

"This study advances a novel argument about the difficulties the major powers of Europe are likely to encounter in attempting the multilateral management of regional security problems." "Spiezio contends that democratic powers are poorly suited to participate in a collective-security regime because they are characterized by domestic political constraints that would inhibit them from honoring the commitments associated with such a regime. Thus, Europe's nascent collective security system is likely to be plagued by repeated acts of buck-passing. This possibility, in turn, holds important implications for the future of both the European state system and the U.S. post-Cold War strategy of promoting democratization, marketization, and regional integration in Europe."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

From Tom Joad to Norma Rae to Spike Lee's Mookie in Do the Right Thing, Hollywood has regularly dramatized the lives and struggles of working people in America. Ranging from idealistic to hopeless, from sympathetic to condescending, these portrayals confronted audiences with the vital economic, social, and political issues of their times while providing a diversion—sometimes entertaining, sometimes provocative—from the realities of their own lives. In Blue-Collar Hollywood, John Bodnar examines the ways in which popular American films made between the 1930s and the 1980s depicted working-class characters, comparing these cinematic representations with the aspirations of ordinary Americans and the promises made to them by the country's political elites. Based on close and imaginative viewings of dozens of films from every genre—among them Public Enemy, Black Fury, Baby Face, The Grapes of Wrath, It's a Wonderful Life, I Married a Communist, A Streetcar Named Desire, Peyton Place, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, Coal Miner's Daughter, and Boyz N the Hood—this book explores such topics as the role of censorship, attitudes toward labor unions and worker militancy, racism, the place of women in the workforce and society, communism and the Hollywood blacklist, and faith in liberal democracy. Whether made during the Great Depression, World War II, the Cold War, or the Vietnam era, the majority of films about ordinary working Americans, Bodnar finds, avoided endorsing specific political programs, radical economic reform, or overtly reactionary positions. Instead, these movies were infused with the same current of liberalism and popular notion of democracy that flow through the American imagination. -- Steven J. Ross, author of Working-Class Hollywood: Silent Film and the Shaping of Class in America
