War adventure with an eerie supernatural undercurrent. In World War 2, an American submarine rescues three survivors from a British hospital ship sunk by the Nazis. What should have been a routine rescue mission escalates into claustrophobic terror as the crew begin collectively to experience paranoid delusions - and to believe that their vessel is haunted. When first officer Lieutenant Brice (Bruce Greenwood) is forced to take over command after the unexpected death of the submarine's commander, he finds he must not only shake off the German destroyer attacking the sub, he must also get to the bottom of the string of mysterious and terrifying incidents that are debilitating his crew.

Human rights organizations have grown exponentially across the globe, particularly in the global South, and the term human rights is now common parlance among politicians and civil society activists. As international donors pour money into global human rights promotion, some governments, scholars, activists, and other critics fear a subtle, Western-led campaign for political, economic, and cultural domination. While debates about human rights are waged in elite circles, what do publics in the global South think about human rights ideas and the organizations that promote them? Drawing on large-scale public opinion surveys and interview with human rights practioners in India, Mexico, Morocco, and Nigeria, Taking Root finds that most people are in fact broadly supportive of human rights discourse, trust local human rights groups, and do not view human rights as a tool of foreign powers. Pro-human rights constituencies also tend to be highly skeptical of the U.S. government, multinational corporations, and their own governments. However, this general public support for human rights isn't grounded in strong commitments of public engagement, money, or local ties to the human rights sector. Publics in the global South do donate to charitable causes and organizations, but rarely give to local rights groups. Rights organizations instead seek aid from foreign sources, an increasingly untenable strategy as foreign aid to civil society declines. The book also describes the complex relations between religiosity and support for human rights as faith communities, worldviews, and traditions strongly influence the public's views of human rights, but often in contradictory ways. As the most informative and comprehensive account available of public perceptions of human rights across several regions of the world, Taking Root will challenge a number of accepted truths held by human rights supporters and skeptics alike.

Visible Signs - An Introduction to Semiotics in the Visual Arts (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition): David Crow Visible Signs - An Introduction to Semiotics in the Visual Arts (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition)

R803 R740 Discovery Miles 7 400 Save R63 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Basic semiotic theories are taught in most art schools as part of a contextual studies program, but many students find it difficult to understand how these ideas might impact on their own practice. Visible Signs tackles this problem by introducing key theories and concepts, such as signs and signifiers, and language and speech, within the framework of visual communication. Each chapter provides an overview of a particular facet of semiotic theory, with inspiring examples from graphic design, typography, illustration, advertising and art to illustrate the ideas discussed in the text. Creative exercises at the end of the book will help exemplify these ideas through practical application. The third edition of Visible Signs features new material from international designers and new creative exercises to accompany each chapter. This new edition also features a new design and layout.

Joseph Lee Rodgers, David Crowe, Warren B. Miller
R4,450 R4,212 Discovery Miles 42 120 Save R238 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Recent work in quantitative biology has shown theoretically why Fisher's Fundamental Theorem of Natural Selection does not preclude genetic influences on fertility, sexuality, and related processes. Genetic Influences on Human Fertility and Sexuality takes the next step, and presents a number of successful empirical searches for such genetic influence on a broad range of processes, such as puberty, marriage, sexual behavior, and twinning. Employing a broad range of methodological approaches, including molecular and behavioral genetics, this book weaves a new theoretical framework that shows how genes can help relate fertility planning to fertility outcome, and how puberty, sexuality, marriage, and reproduction can be conceptually linked through the genes that contribute to individual differences in the human process.

Most parents believe that their child's personality and intellectual development is a direct result of their child-rearing practices and home environment. This belief is supported by many social scientists who contend that the influences of "nature" and "nurture" are inseparable. Challenging such universally accepted assumptions, The Limits of Family Influence argues that socialization science has placed too heavy an emphasis on the family as the bearer of culture. Similarly, it reveals how the environmental variables most often named in socialization science--such as social class, parental warmth, and one- versus two-parent households--may also be empty of causal influence on child outcomes such as intelligence, personality, and psychopathology.

John Updike once wrote that many of his works are ""illustrations of Kierkegaard,"" and yet no current study provides an extended, convincing reason why this is so, why Updike came to live by Soren Kierkegaard's ideas. This study does, telling the story of Updike's life-altering encounter withFear and Trembling in his early career, and tracing the subsequent evolution of Updike's complex and coherent theology. Examining Updike's many claims about Kierkegaard's life and work, and casting those claims into debate with Kierkegaard's best scholars and critics, this book explains why Kierkegaard and his intellectual inheritors Karl Barth and Miguel de Unamuno provided Updike with a reason to live, and a vocation as an antinomian Christian writer. The study pursues the same question Updike did: how are identity and action bound up with faith in God? The eighteen intensely autobiographical Maples stories, chapters in the tale of a twenty-two-year marriage that begins hopefully but ends in divorce, epitomize the theological preoccupations Updike learned from Kierkegaard--becoming an authentic self and learning to love the neighbor creatively rather than compulsively.

A History of the Gypsies of Eastern Europe and Russia (Hardcover, New edition): David Crowe A History of the Gypsies of Eastern Europe and Russia (Hardcover, New edition)

Drawn from traditional sources, this history explores the life, history and culture of the gypsies, or Roma, from their arrival in the Eastern European region in the Middle Ages until the present. Their past reflects the diverse traditions of every part of Eastern Europe and particularly Russia, where they have exerted a profound influence on literary and musical elements. Balkan Roma were affected by the region's Ottoman past, while Central European gypsies were influenced by Habsburg traditions. Crowe also reviews the tragic and virulent prejudice and mistreatment of gypsies, epitomized by their losses during the Nazi holocaust. He concludes by examining the rebirth of prejudice and the plight of the Roma as they struggle to redefine their role in the new post-Communist world.

In recent news coverage of the dramatic political events in Eastern Europe, Gypsies have been a favourite sidebar topic. Some of the stories have been truly horrifying, others are written condescendingly and to amuse; but what has become clear is how little we really know about this people. In a concerted effort to uncover the modern history of the Rom in Eastern Europe, the authors examine the Gypsy experience in Albania, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia, with special attention to the Nazi Holocaust as well as to the record of the forced settlement and education programmes instituted by communist regimes.
