Did you know that the English language has over 150 words for the adjective 'drunk' developed over 1,000 years? Be prepared to learn words you have never heard before, find out fascinating facts behind everyday words, and be surprised at how lively and varied the English language can be. Published to critical acclaim in 2009, the Historical Thesaurus of the Oxford English Dictionary is the first comprehensive thesaurus in the world to arrange words by meaning in order of first recorded use. Using its unique perspective on how the English language has developed, Words in Time and Place takes 15 themes and explores the language in these areas over time - explaining when new words appeared, where they came from, and what such changes say about times in which they emerged. The themes chosen are varied, universal topics and show the semantic range of the thesaurus and what it can tell us about the words used in areas of everyday life. Learn about the different words for dying and money, or types of pop music, as well as words for a privy, oaths, and words for being drunk. Written by the world's leading expert on the English language, David Crystal, the book carries his trademark style of engaging yet authoritative writing. Each chapter features an introduction to the language of that topic, followed by a timeline of vocabulary taken from the historical thesaurus showing all the synonyms arranged in chronological order. The timelines are annotated with additional quotations, facts, and social and historical context to give a clear sense of how words entered the English language, when, and in which context they were used. Words in Time and Place showcases the unique and excellent resource that is the Historical Thesaurus and reveals the linguistic treasures to be found within. This fascinating book will appeal to anyone with an interest in words and in the development of the English language.

R2,561 Discovery Miles 25 610 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Do you ever wonder how transnational social movements get started? Or how economic development can differ so much from one country to the next? Or what the relationship might be between world religions and conflict across the globe? Dickovick and Eastwood's approach to the field integrates the discussion of theories, methods, and cases in order to teach students how to become comparativists-to think about, analyze, and understand the big questions in our world today. Comparative Politics: Integrating Theories, Methods, and Cases, Third Edition, is a mainstream, thematic text that uses a systematic approach and structure to convey timely issues in current comparative politics. Chapters highlight three principle elements of comparative political analysis - methods, theories, and evidence - which interact to shape major questions and debates in the field. Additionally, this text looks systematically at issues of political economy, institutions, and social change. The text uses U.S. and UK political systems as a familiar jumping-off point for students while addressing other countries in the narative. Each chapter concludes with a country case study for a truly comparative approach to the content.

Gareth Davies, Matej Avbelj
R5,152 Discovery Miles 51 520 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Research Handbook on Legal Pluralism and EU Law explores the phenomenon of overlapping legal systems within the European Union, the nature of their interactions, and how they deal with the difficult question of the legal hierarchy between them. The contributors reflect on the history, sociology and legal scholarship on constitutional and legal pluralism, and develop this further in the light of the challenges currently facing the EU. Addressing pluralism within policy areas such as EMU, migration, and external relations, and applying different perspectives - from the constitutionalist to the Foucauldian - this diverse collection of thinkers about EU law ask whether a pluralist perspective is part of the problem or part of the solution. Contributors offer both critical and positive assessments of the value of pluralist thinking in the EU whilst addressing major issues facing the EU now - Brexit, populism, migration, the Euro-crisis - and asking what lessons can be learned from and for pluralism. This Research Handbook will be invaluable reading for legal academics specialising in EU law, EU constitutional Law, legal theory and political scientists focused on legal aspects of EU integration. Students on advanced courses in EU law and EU constitutional law, as well as judges at the Court of Justice and higher national courts, will also find this stimulating reading.

When Bob Dylan picked up a silver cross thrown on stage and found Christianity in the late Seventies, it ended a search that had begun when his life crashed to a halt in 1966. According to Dylan, the turning point came one night in late 1978 when he received a "vision and a feeling." Dylan later said, "Jesus put his hand on me. It was a physical thing. I felt it. I felt it all over me. I felt my whole body tremble. The glory of the Lord knocked me down and picked me up." That search makes sense of his John Wesley Harding album and the following 12 years.
