Contemporary Left Antisemitism (Hardcover): David Hirsh Contemporary Left Antisemitism (Hardcover)
David Hirsh
R2,883 Discovery Miles 28 830 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Today's antisemitism is difficult to recognize because it does not come dressed in a Nazi uniform and it does not openly proclaim its hatred or fear of Jews. This book looks at the kind of antisemitism which is tolerated or which goes unacknowledged in apparently democratic spaces: trade unions, churches, left-wing and liberal politics, social gatherings of the chattering classes and the seminars and journals of radical intellectuals. It analyses how criticism of Israel can mushroom into antisemitism and it looks at struggles over how antisemitism is defined. It focuses on ways in which those who raise the issue of antisemitism are often accused of doing so in bad faith in an attempt to silence or smear. Hostility to Israel has become a signifier of identity, connected to opposition to imperialism, neo-liberalism and global capitalism; the 'community of the good' takes on toxic ways of imagining most living Jewish people.

This volume reports on programs to revitalize and maintain languages of Thailand, with a particular focus on small enclave languages and school-based revitalization programs. Issues of language status, cultural heritage and identity are explored. The approximately 70 languages of Thailand belong to five language families: Tai (24), Austroasiatic (23), Austronesian (3), Sino-Tibetan (18) and Hmong-Mien (2). Currently, fifteen of these languages are classified as seriously endangered. This volume discusses language revitalization efforts involving six Mon-Khmer groups (Maniq, Chong, Nyah Kur, So, Mlabri, Lavue); four Thai-related groups (Phetburi western central Thai, Phutai, Lao, Nyaw); two Austronesian groups (Moklen, Patani Malay); and one Tibeto-Burman group (Bisu). The book provides a framework and model for future developments in revitalizing Thailand's indigenous languages.

Reflecting current understanding of vocabulary as a multifaceted construct, this edited volume presents a collection of qualitative and quantitative studies which shed light on key theoretical concepts associated with learning and using vocabulary in second language contexts. Themes explored in the volume include the concept of partial vocabulary knowledge, the relationship between reading ability and vocabulary knowledge, the specialised vocabulary of high school science, morphological and orthographical components of word learning, the impact of word aspects on difficulty of learning, the nature of affix knowledge, and early speech development. The findings presented in the volume contribute to our growing and deepening appreciation of the contribution of vocabulary knowledge to learning and using language in second language contexts.

Academic texts present subject-specific ideas within a subject-independent framework. This book accounts for the presence of academic words in academic writing by exploring recurring patterns of function in texts representing different subject areas. The book presents a framework which describes academic word use at the ideational, textual and interpersonal levels. Functional categories are presented and illustrated which explain the role of academic words alongside general purpose and technical terms. The author examines biomedical research articles, and journal articles from arts, commerce and law. A comparable analysis focuses on university textbook chapters. Case studies investigate patterns of functionality within the main sections of research articles, compare word use in academic and non-academic texts reporting on the same research, and explore the carrier word function of academic vocabulary. The study concludes by looking at historical and contemporary processes which have shaped the presence of academic vocabulary in the English lexicon.

Reflecting growth in research interest in second language vocabulary over the past 30 years, this edited volume explores the current themes and possible future directions in second language vocabulary research. The collection brings together review papers and quantitative studies, and considers vocabulary in the contexts of teaching, learning and assessment. Key themes explored in the volume include multidimensionality of vocabulary knowledge, the nature of word learnability, the interface between receptive vocabulary knowledge and productive vocabulary use, the partial-to-precise continuum of vocabulary knowledge, conditions favouring vocabulary learning and use, and the use of corpora to develop word lists to inform second language teaching. The themes presented in this volume reflect current thinking and research avenues at the interface between research enquiry and second language teaching practice.

Law Against Genocide - Cosmopolitan Trials (Paperback): David Hirsh Law Against Genocide - Cosmopolitan Trials (Paperback)
David Hirsh
R1,541 Discovery Miles 15 410 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

In this text, discussion of theoretical debates and development surrounding humanitarian and human rights law is anchored in studies of four trials, two at the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia, the London trial of Andrei Sawoniuk in 1999 for crimes during the Holocaust, and the David Irving libel case. The author makes a case for seeing these trials as part of an emergent cosmopolitan criminal law, and takes on critics of this school of thought who see it as either idealistic or culturally imperialistic.

Many of the world's 7000 documented language groups are endangered due to falling rates of language and culture transmission from one generation to the next. Some endangered language groups have been the focus of efforts to reverse patterns of linguistic and cultural loss, with variable success. This book presents case studies of endangered language groups from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe and the Pacific (including Bisu, Iban, Iquito, Quechua, Wawa, Yi and sign languages) and of their associated knowledge and belief systems, to highlight the importance of preserving linguistic and cultural diversity. Issues of identity and pride emerge within the book, alongside discussion of language and culture policy.
