He soon discovers from pie-maker Mrs Lovett (Bonham Carter) that, in his absence, his wife has taken her own life and his daughter is now in the care of the man who had him sent away - the dastardly Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman). Seeking revenge and filled with a murderous rage, Barker sets up a barber's shop above Mrs Lovett's premises. Now calling himself Sweeney Todd, Barker kills off all his customers with a razor to the throat and sends their cadavers to the shop below to be used as a tasty new filling for Mrs Lovett's meat pies. What was once the worst pie shop in London quickly becomes one of the city's most popular eateries, but Barker won't be satisfied until he can lure Judge Turpin into the barber's chair...

R580 Discovery Miles 5 800 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This revised and updated edition of the widely praised "Democracy and National Identity in Thailand" provides readers with a fascinating discussion of how debates about democracy and national identity in Thailand have evolved from the period of counter-insurgency in the 1960s to the current (post-coup) period. Focusing on state- and civil society-centred democratic projects, Connors uses original Thai language sources to trace how the Thai state developed a democratic ideology that meshed with idealized notions of Thai identity, focusing on the monarchy. The book moves on to explore how non-state actors have mobilized notions of democracy and national identity in their battle against authoritarian rule. It also invites readers to explore democratic ideology as a form of power aimed at creating ideal citizens able to support elite national projects. A 'must' for all courses on Southeast Asia, the book also offers valuable insights for all courses dealing with issues of democratization.

A Hunger for Aesthetics - Enacting the Demands of Art (Paperback): Michael Kelly A Hunger for Aesthetics - Enacting the Demands of Art (Paperback)
Michael Kelly
R566 R455 Discovery Miles 4 550 Save R111 (20%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

For decades, aesthetics has been subjected to a variety of critiques, often concerning its treatment of beauty or the autonomy of art. Collectively, these complaints have generated an anti-aesthetic stance prevalent in the contemporary art world. Yet if we examine the motivations for these critiques, Michael Kelly argues, we find theorists and artists hungering for a new kind of aesthetics, one better calibrated to contemporary art and its moral and political demands. Following an analysis of the work of Stanley Cavell, Arthur Danto, Umberto Eco, Susan Sontag, and other philosophers of the 1960s who made aesthetics more responsive to contemporary art, Kelly considers Sontag's aesthetics in greater detail. In On Photography (1977), she argues that a photograph of a person who is suffering only aestheticizes the suffering for the viewer's pleasure, yet she insists in Regarding the Pain of Others (2003) that such a photograph can have a sustainable moral-political effect precisely because of its aesthetics. Kelly considers this dramatic change to be symptomatic of a cultural shift in our understanding of aesthetics, ethics, and politics. He discusses these issues in connection with Gerhard Richter's and Doris Salcedo's art, chosen because it is often identified with the anti-aesthetic, even though it is clearly aesthetic. Focusing first on Richter's Baader-Meinhof series, Kelly concludes with Salcedo's enactments of suffering caused by social injustice. Throughout A Hunger for Aesthetics, he reveals the place of critique in contemporary art, which, if we understand aesthetics as critique, confirms that it is integral to art. Meeting the demand for aesthetics voiced by many who participate in art, Kelly advocates for a critical aesthetics that confirms the power of art.

The series of papers in this volume were given as talks in Sydney during a year of extra-ordinary surprises after Pope Benedict XVI resigned and Pope Francis was elected as Bishop of Rome (as he likes to call himself). Even if it's only catching up with many things that have become commonplace assumptions in the contemporary world, it would seem that the Catholic Church is at a turning point as has been evidenced in all that Pope Francis has done since becoming Bishop of Rome. The subject of the first paper by Michael Kelly is not so much the scandals that have rocked the Catholic Church of late, but where does the Church, as a community and a public entity, need to go from here on these issues. That discussion-as intimate as it is related to some very public features of the Church-has a context: the history of a Church badly in need of structural reform. If the sentiments of the faithful and the desire to make the community of the Church more in deed what it claims in words, the reach of those changes is as profound as it is extensive. Effective reform of an historical community like the Roman Catholic Church will not happen without a deep grasp of the history of forms in need of reformation. That is the focus of Chris Geraghty's contribution to this collection. Probing the spirit and reforming the body are for a purpose: mission. That mission is conditioned by the challenges of the context in which it is exercised. That is the focus of Frank Brennan's contribution as he assesses the challenges and proposes some fresh approaches to meeting them. Because there have been so many formulaic and essentially unengaged responses to contemporary issues in and beyond the Church, the transformation needed in attitude and practical proposals to handle them is vast.
