Regional Economic Change in Russia (Hardcover, illustrated edition): Philip Hanson, Michael Bradshaw Regional Economic Change in Russia (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Philip Hanson, Michael Bradshaw
R2,544 Discovery Miles 25 440 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Since the demise of communism, Russia has become increasingly disparate. Some regions have grown in strength while others have been less successful. This book examines regional patterns of economic change in Russia by addressing questions such as: * Is Russia a single economic area? * Why are regional economic inequalities increasing? * Are there significant regional differences in the economic regime? * What influence do leaders have in their own regions, and on federal economic policies? * To what extent do central policymakers affect regional outcomes? * How are Russian regions affected by their new openness to foreign trade and investment? Based on research carried out by an international and interdisciplinary group of experts, this book analyses case studies from eight regions as well as testing hypotheses on data for the 77 main administrative regions. It will be of immense value to academics, those working for government and non-government agencies, and business people.

Energy and Society is the first major text to provide an extensive critical treatment of energy issues informed by recent research on energy in the social sciences. Written in an engaging and accessible style it draws new thinking on uneven development, consumption, vulnerability and transition together to illustrate the social significance of energy systems in the global North and South. The book features case studies, examples, discussion questions, activities, recommended reading and more, to facilitate its use in teaching. Energy and Society deploys contemporary geographical concepts and approaches but is not narrowly disciplinary. Its critical perspective highlights connections between energy and significant socio-economic and political processes, such as globalisation, urban isation, international development and social justice, and connects important issues that are often treated in isolation, such as resource availability, energy security, energy access and low-carbon transition. Co-authored by leading researchers and based on current research and thinking in the social sciences, Energy and Society presents a distinctive geographical approach to contemporary energy issues. It is an essential resource for upperlevel undergraduates and Master's students in geography, environmental studies, urban studies, energy studies and related fields.

The Appalachian Regional Commission - Twenty-Five Years of Government Policy (Paperback): Michael Bradshaw The Appalachian Regional Commission - Twenty-Five Years of Government Policy (Paperback)
Michael Bradshaw
R1,027 Discovery Miles 10 270 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The images of poverty in Appalachia that John F. Kennedy used in his campaign for the presidency in 1960 shocked and disturbed many Americans. Five years later, President Lyndon Johnson and the U.S. Congress demonstrated their commitment to that neglected and exploited region with the creation of the Appalachian Regional Commission. In this insightful book, Michael Bradshaw explores the ARC's unique federal-state partnership and analyses in detail the contributions of the local development districts. But this work is more than an analysis of a government agency; it is, as Bradshaw notes, "a book about an attempt to change the human geography of a large region of the United States by means of public policy." Bradshaw offers important insights into the ARC's interactions with six administrations throughout its history. The Reagan years were especially challenging: during his eight years in office, Reagan left the ARC out of his budget entirely, but support from the state governors and Congress prevented closing of the Commission and maintained basic funding. The bottom line for an agency such as the ARC is whether it has made any difference in the lives of the people of Appalachia. Many would say their lives have been affected positively by the government funds that have been poured into the region, but many others continue to question the ways in which the ARC was established and operated. This is a book that should be read by any citizen who is interested in how to make government work effectively at all levels.

Thomas Lovell Beddoes; Volume editing by Michael Bradshaw
R297 R242 Discovery Miles 2 420 Save R55 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

"Death's Jest-Book" is the extravagant expression of Thomas Lovell Beddoes's lifelong obsession with mortality and immortality, a surrealising of Renaissance revenge tragedy, alight with treachery, murder, sorcery and haunting. Conceived as a satirical tragedy unmasking the terror of death, it contains some of the most powerful dramatic blank verse by any of the British Romantics. After early acclaim as a lyric poet and dramatist, Beddoes (1803-49) is only now emerging from a century and a half of neglect. This is the first affordable modern edition to present the "Jest-Book" in its earliest complete form, as Beddoes intended to publish it in 1829. The text is supplemented by Michael Bradshaw's introduction, notes and outline of the publication history.

This book, aimed at students of American history, geography and politics, looks at the background to the rise of distinctive regions in the United States and the effects of cultural, economic, racial and political factors on that process.

This volume is thus a companion to Kenneth Fox's Metropolitan America in the Contemporary United States series. `...this book will be valuable as recommended reading for all undergraduate courses in American Studies.'

This modern, comprehensive study of the human geography of North America will be invaluable to students of both regional and human geography.

Providing an historical view of geographical development and an analysis of the economic, demographic and social variations across the two nations, the book considers the challenges presented by the continent's physical environment, examines urban North America, and looks at possible developments in the coming decades.

Resurrection Songs: The Poetry of Thomas Lovell Beddoes - The Poetry of Thomas Lovell Beddoes (Hardcover): Michael Bradshaw Resurrection Songs: The Poetry of Thomas Lovell Beddoes - The Poetry of Thomas Lovell Beddoes (Hardcover)
Michael Bradshaw
R2,128 Discovery Miles 21 280 Special order

This title was first published in 2001. Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803-49) was a powerful poet of the English Romantic period, who has been and is still strangely neglected by critics. His macabre blank verse dramatic writings and his delicately balanced lyrics have both won ardent admirers such as Browning, Gosse, Pound and Christopher Ricks. Yet there are formal and generic problems in Beddoes's writings which continue to marginalize him as merely an eccentric, and the canon of Romanticism seems to have found no place for him.

Ute Berns; Edited by Michael Bradshaw; Series edited by Vincent Newey, Joanne Shattock
R2,577 Discovery Miles 25 770 Special order

Bringing together eminent scholars and emerging critics who offer a range of perspectives and critical methods, this collection sets a new standard in Beddoes criticism. In line with the goals of Ashgate's Research Companion series, the editors and contributors provide an overview of Beddoes's criticism and identify significant new directions in Beddoes studies. These include exploring Beddoes's German context, only recently a site of critical attention; reading Beddoes's plays in light of gender theory; and reassessing Beddoes's use of dramatic genre in the context of recent work by theatre historians. Rounding out the volume are essays devoted to key areas in Beddoes's scholarship such as nineteenth-century medical theories, psychoanalytic myth, and Romantic ventriloquism. This collection makes the case for Beddoes's centrality to contemporary debates about nineteenth-century literary culture and its contexts and his influence on Modernist conceptions of literature.

A New Economic Geography of Russia (Hardcover, New): Michael Bradshaw A New Economic Geography of Russia (Hardcover, New)
Michael Bradshaw
R2,950 Discovery Miles 29 500 Special order

This book, based on extensive original research, surveys the impact of globalization, economic transition, economic restructuring, and regional economic change on the Russian Federation. The author employs the methodological and theoretical approaches of both 'old' and 'new' economic geography to explain the spatial consequences of Soviet socialism for the new economic geographies that are being created by the processes of transformation. Including a review of recent English-language research by geographers and other social scientists, and also original empirical analysis, it makes a contribution to wider debates, both about the theory of regional economic change in the post-socialist world, and the relationship between geography and area studies.

THOMAS LOVELL BEDDOES (1803-1849) is a latter-day Jacobean, the author of blank verse plays and poems which are as bold, wild and fresh as they are archaic in manner. We read his plays less for character and drama than for the miracles that occur in their language. He is a poet of fragments. His mastery of lyric and ballad make his work immediately accessible, an obsession with death aligns him with the Decadents. 'Dream Pedlary', with its potent eroticism, and Death's Jest Book are masterpieces in what John Ashbery calls the 'unlikely but addictive bouquet' of Beddoes's verse. A nephew of Maria Edgeworth, Beddoes was born in Bristol. Educated at Charterhouse and Pembroke College, Oxford, he went to the Continent to study medicine. He committed suicide at the age of 45.
