Drama Kings - Players and Publics in the Re-creation of Peking Opera, 1870-1937 (Hardcover): Joshua Goldstein Drama Kings - Players and Publics in the Re-creation of Peking Opera, 1870-1937 (Hardcover)

In this colorful and detailed history, Joshua Goldstein describes the formation of the Peking opera in late Qing and its subsequent rise and re-creation as the epitome of the Chinese national culture in Republican era China. Providing a fascinating look into the lives of some of the opera's key actors, he explores their methods for earning a living; their status in an ever-changing society; the methods by which theaters functioned; the nature and content of performances; audience make-up; and the larger relationship between Peking opera and Chinese nationalism. Propelled by a synergy of the commercial and the political patronage from the Qing court in Beijing to modern theaters in Shanghai and Tianjin, Peking opera rose to national prominence. The genre's star actors, particularly male cross-dressing performers led by the exquisite Mei Lanfang and the 'Four Great Female Impersonators' became media celebrities, models of modern fashion and world travel. Ironically, as it became increasingly entrenched in modern commercial networks, Peking opera was increasingly framed in post-May fourth discourses as profoundly traditional. "Drama Kings" demonstrates that the process of reforming and marketing Peking opera as a national genre was integrally involved with process of colonial modernity, shifting gender roles, the rise of capitalist visual culture, and new technologies of public discipline that became increasingly prevalent in urban China in the Republican era.

"Maccabee Lady: Hatikva (Hope)" is a comic book about an Israeli superhero. It is a graphic novel collection of seven stories. The artwork and writing are done by Richard Stockton College Student Josh Goldstein, a history major. Josh Goldstein has an Associate of Arts in History from Burlington County College (BCC). He is a published author of a science fiction book "Zayin" available on Amazon.com and in bookstores in some locations. Josh Goldstein has also published four independent comic books. Readers at least 12-years-old are the intended audience. If you like superheroes, large explosions and great artwork, you will fall in love with this novel The first story is called Rebirth, the Origin Story. The origin of Maccabee Lady revolves around a beautiful Israeli Defense Force (IDF) nurse named Lt. Sophia Kellman from Tel Aviv-Yafo. She has several dreams about a mysterious capped woman and the burning bush. This causes Sophia Kellman to travel to the mysterious Mt. Matza in Egypt's age-old Sinai Desert region. Kellman was struck by a thunderbolt, and this turns her into Maccabee Lady, a super powered shoftim (or judge) who defends the state of Israel. Maccabee Lady's new powers include super strength, enhanced fighting ability, and invulnerability. She also has the fighting experience of the ancient Israelite warriors in an energy blast called "the Hashem Wave." It contains the combined fighting power of the Biblical Warriors Moses, Joshua, and Deborah in a gigantic energy blast. She is not only a superhero that fights to defend the state of Israel and defend historic Jewish values, but also to defend the world from evil people like Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, and the Political leader of Hezbollah Hassan Nasrallah. They threaten the peace between the countries of Israel and Lebanon and peace around the world. The second story is called Mkab. In the Mkab story, an archeologist is transformed by a magic ring he finds into the mutant called Mkab. Mkab mortally wounds the world's greatest superhero named Dreadnaught. Mkab turns the Allied Powers into a superpower army. They take over Mexico and Central America. Mkab starts a new Atec-like fascist regime. President George W. Bush nukes Mexico City. Macabee Lady fights Mkab in outer space. The spirit of Dreadnaught assists Macabee Lady, and they defeat Mkab. There are five additional stories in the graphic novel which involve the superhero activities of Maccabee Lady - Free Gilad, Nuclear Crisis, Lulov, The Web of Akavesha, and Prime Minister. Maccabee Lady ends with a Gallery Of Covers. To sum it all up, Maccabee Lady is for people who love Israel and who love a good superhero fight. Throughout history, Jews have faced many odds and adversaries. Some of them, for example, the Ancient Egyptians, the Philistines, the Seleucids, and the Nazis, tried throughout history to eliminate the Jewish people, seize their territory, militarily defeat them, and see them assimilated, or eliminated. Their right to exist has been challenged again and again. Again and again, people like Sophia Kellman have defended the Jewish people from those who wanted to bring harm to them. People like Hitler or Antiochus Epiphanes IV, ruler of the 1st Century Seleucid Empire and nemesis of the Maccabee Rebels, wished to eradicate them, culturally erase them, or assimilate them.

Remains of the Everyday traces the changing material culture and industrial ecology of China through the lens of recycling. Over the last century, waste recovery and secondhand goods markets have been integral to Beijing's economic functioning and cultural identity, and acts of recycling have figured centrally in the ideological imagination of modernity and citizenship. On the one hand, the Chinese state has repeatedly promoted acts of voluntary recycling as exemplary of conscientious citizenship. On the other, informal recycling networks-from the night soil carriers of the Republican era to the collectors of plastic and cardboard in Beijing's neighborhoods today-have been represented as undisciplined, polluting, and technologically primitive due to the municipal government's failure to control them. The result, Joshua Goldstein argues, is the repeatedly re-inscribed exclusion of waste workers from formations of modern urban citizenship as well as the intrinsic liminality of recycling itself as an economic process.
