Imperialism and Global Political Economy Imperialism and Global Political Economy Новинка

Imperialism and Global Political Economy

In Imperialism and Global Political Economy Alex Callinicos intervenes in one of the main political and intellectual debates of the day. The global policies of the United States in the past decade have encouraged the widespread belief that we live in a new era of imperialism. But is this belief true, and what does 'imperialism' mean? Callinicos explores these questions in this wide-ranging book. In the first part, he critically assesses the classical theories of imperialism developed in the era of the First World War by Marxists such as Lenin, Luxemburg, and Bukharin and by the Liberal economist J.A. Hobson. He then outlines a theory of the relationship between capitalism as an economic system and the international state system, carving out a distinctive position compared to other contemporary theorists of empire and imperialism such as Antonio Negri, David Harvey, Giovanni Arrighi, and Ellen Wood. In the second half of Imperialism and Global Political Economy Callinicos traces the history of capitalist imperialism from the Dutch East India Company to the specific patterns of economic and geopolitical competition in the contemporary era of American decline and Chinese expansion. Imperialism, he concludes, is far from dead.

Late Victorian Imperial Adventure Novel Late Victorian Imperial Adventure Novel Новинка

Late Victorian Imperial Adventure Novel

British imperialism was formulated during the period from the late sixteenth century to the late nineteenth through the use of various discourses such as colonialism, racism, overseas commercialism and pro-imperial militarism. During the period, literary production was always used as a functional tool in the formulation and dissemination of the discourses of British imperialism. Therefore, after the 1870s, when the age of New Imperialism began with the emergence of new European imperial powers, popular adventure novels also began to emerge and then be appropriated as propaganda tools for the reinforcement of the imperial ideology in British society. Imperial adventure novels of George Alfred Henty represent this propagandist attitude in late Victorian popular fiction. However, another response to New Imperialism in Britain was the emergence of an anti-imperialistic approach. Although most critics, heavily influenced by postcolonial theory, have interpreted the imperial romances of Henry Rider Haggard as representing the pro-imperialist attitude, Ak?ll? argues and illustrates in this book that Haggard’s novels reflect a worldview which was sharply critical of British imperialism.
Myth, Orality and Tradition in Ben Okri's Literary Landscape Myth, Orality and Tradition in Ben Okri's Literary Landscape Новинка

Myth, Orality and Tradition in Ben Okri's Literary Landscape

This book is an appraisal of myth, Orality and tradition in Ben Okri‘s Literary Landscape. Okri uses magical realism as a vehicle to bridge the gap between the European literary tradition and the post-colonial socio-cultural societies ranging from Africa, the Caribbean, the Pacific to Latin America. Undoubtedly, Ben Okri has been enormously influenced by Amos Tutuola ,D.O. Fagunwa and Wole Soyinka, who were the pioneers of magical realism in Nigerian literature. Okri‘s recourse to covert criticism of anthropocentrism and its attendant variables which locate humans at the centre of the world is grounded in both The Famished Road, and Songs of Enchantment. The two novels when read as records of the spirit world, in its relationship with the physical world, underscores the role of myth maker in African literature as both a technician and a visionary. He functions within the two roles effortlessly in his quest to gather, evaluate and analyse the materials available to him: words, wood, raffia, road, river, mountain or whatever, which in themselves carry a spirituality or an innate essence. Since forms and motifs already exist in the imaginative locale of such African writer.

INTERTEXTUALITY AND THE NOVELS OF AMOS TUTUOLA AND BEN OKRI

Literary perspectives, especially as they concern the African novel genre, continue to interest the literati. This is with the aim of identifying the conflicting and similar epistemological views of African authors, as they are being impacted upon by ‘Euramerican'' cosmic ethos. This book is deeply reflective of the above. It explores the theoretical notions of intertextuality to explicate the appropriative desires of Ben Okri in his ‘anxiety of influence'' relationships with Amos Tutuola, the latter being a paternal figure in textual indegeneity, fantasy textuality in particular.
New Imperialism? New Imperialism? Новинка

New Imperialism?

This exposition is written to revisit whether the Marxist theory of imperialism is still a useful way of understanding world events and to consider how the theory could be modified in light of world experience since Lenin wrote about imperialism in 1916. World events and particularly the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and the 2003 invasion of Iraq by the United States, have reignited interest in the concept of imperialism. Many writers use the term ‘new’ imperialism or ‘neo-imperialism’ and stress on the qualitative difference between the pattern of rule used primarily by the United States and the pattern of rule in the former British Empire. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were launched against resistant states which were then subdued. The economy and politics of these nations were restructured towards ends desired by the imperial power within an overall objective of setting the new nation up for compliant “self” rule. New in comparison to the British Empire it may be, but as discussed here, this is a phenomenon which predates the Iraq war by 105 years, as it was the method of subjugation used in the Philippines.

The English Department: Essays in Literary and Cultural Studies

The formal beginning of English literature as a discipline is a contested site, if not shrouded by mystery altogether. Ben Jonson, Dr Johnson, Matthew Arnold—all these and many more can claim to be the beginner of a tradition which has travelled deep and wide in time and space for more than ten centuries now. But though the beginnings cannot be ascertained with accuracy, it is clear that the discipline has started falling apart. The essays collected in this book is a modest attempt at understanding the dynamics of this tradition from the literary to the cultural, from “English” to “englishes,” from literary criticism to critical theory, from literary studies to cultural studies

A Study of the Nature and Development of Shakespeare's Comedies

The main purpose of this study is to show the nature of Shakespeare’s comedies and their stages of development from light comedy to intellectual comedy, and finally to gloomy comedies that border on tragicomedy. Although Shakespeare’s comedies are, as a whole, different from those of his contemporaries and classical playwrights, they do not follow a certain pattern. Shakespeare sometimes chooses the tradition and conventions of classical comedy and manipulates them in his own way, but very often he neglects the traditional conventions and writes a different kind of comedy. Shakespeare’s comedies are in many ways different from those of Jonson and other followers of classical comedy. His comedies are not satirical and they don’t arouse hearty laughter. The characters in his comedies make us smile, but they do not evoke cruel laughter. This study endeavours to explore the difference between Shakespearean comedy and classical comedy, and Shakespeare’s deviation from those conventions is mentioned with references to some representative comedies. What makes his comedies Shakespearean is the fundamental argument of the present study.

Reading literary and non-literary texts: A dialogic approach

The current study sets out 1) to investigate the strategic needs of participants in reading literary and non-literary texts; and 2) to shed light on the differences of reading literary and non-literary texts. To achieve this aim, thirty participants read three literary and two non-literary texts and wrote down the questions for which they could not find any answer.Next, these questions were categorized in five groups: Scripturally implicit, textually implicit, textually explicit, linguistic and miscomprehension. The findings suggest that the dominant problem of participants lies in textually implicit aspects of the text. Finally, a Kruskal-Wallis test was applied in order to compare the frequency of question types across literary and non-literary texts. The difference of all question types proved to be statistically significant across both literary and non-literary texts.

Rhys's Wide Sargasso Sea as a Hypertext of Bronte's Jane Eyre

Hypertextuality provides a comprehensive system of analyzing any relationship between literary texts. It is a generic architext which encompasses certain genres such as pastiche, parody, and travesty. The main concern of this book is parody.

The book considers the generic study of both novels focusing on the concept of bildungsroman and analysis of the dream texts, and also character analysis of Rochester. Concequently, the research shows how some elements in Jane Eyre are developed into parodic elements in Wide Sargasso Sea.This book sheds more light on the post-modern concept of Hypertextuality to help the reader comprehend it better.

RHETORICAL CRITICISM OF BEN OKRI'S ASTONISHING THE GODS

This book was an attempt at making manifest the rhetorical options explored by Ben Okri in his work, Astonishing the Gods.In pursuance of this aim, an exegesis of Astonishing the Gods and some other novels that shared stylistic traits with it was done. Classical and modern views on rhetoric were also reviewed. Furthermore, besides the manifest rhetorical strategies that were employed by the author, literary matters with rhetorical focus were also highlighted.During this analysis, it came to light that Ben Okri availed himself of the holism that was in-dwelling in the new rhetoric revisionist sensibilities. However, the fact that new rhetoric was built on Aristotelian precedents was also revealed.This research concluded that although literature and rhetoric may not be the same, a very nebulous line, to a discerning critic, separated the two.

The Great Comedies and Tragedies

The Comedies with introductions by Judith Buchanan. These comedies are among the best loved of Shakespeare's plays. In each a problem emerges, is then intensified to a point of maximum confusion and potential upset, before the chaos is resolved, however improbably, into general goodwill and a spate of marriages. The triumph of these plays lies in the way they mingle humorous stage business and dexterous word play with a more serious study of identity, gender, dreaming, the meaning of love, even of the theatre itself. They reassure us that with all its faults, the world will always in the end be redeemable. The Tragedies with introductions by Emma Smith. "Not for an age but for all time". So Ben Jonson established what we now take for granted: Shakespeare's unique place among the world's great authors. Romeo and Juliet shows us the archetypal story of fated young love; Hamlet, the tortured psyche of the young prince of Denmark; Othello, a strikingly modern representation of racial difference; King Lear, a man stripped of all material and psychological comforts; and Macbeth, a dark investigation of the origins and effects of, evil. The plays throw a fascinating light on the concerns of Shakespeare's day, yet offer perennial insights into the nature of human emotion.
China and the Victorian Imagination China and the Victorian Imagination Новинка

China and the Victorian Imagination

What happens to our understanding of 'orientalism' and imperialism when we consider British-Chinese relations during the nineteenth century, rather than focusing on India, Africa or the Caribbean? This book explores China's centrality to British imperial aspirations and literary production, underscoring the heterogeneous, interconnected nature of Britain's formal and informal empire. To British eyes, China promised unlimited economic possibilities, but also posed an ominous threat to global hegemony. Surveying anglophone literary production about China across high and low cultures, as well as across time, space and genres, this book demonstrates how important location was to the production, circulation and reception of received ideas about China and the Chinese. In this account, treaty ports matter more than opium. Ross Forman challenges our preconceptions about British imperialism, reconceptualizes anglophone literary production in the global and local contexts, and excavates the little-known Victorian history so germane to contemporary debates about China's 'rise'.

The evolution of strategy: from the roots to the future

Revision with unchanged content. Strategy: arguably one of the most abstract elements that leaders have to deal with. But where did it come from and how will it develop in the future? That is the framework within which this book will take a closer look at the phenomenon "strategy". Development tendencies in the field of strategy are found and possible future trends are extrapolated. A historical overview is created to map out the roots of strategy, found in military thinking. The focus is then shifted to strategy in the business environment. An analysis is made identifying the general development trends in the field of strategy. This includes a closer look at two essential phenomena: globalization as well as alliances and networking. The analysis is used as a basis to extrapolate what business strategy will be about in the future. This general forecast includes basic implications and suggestions for companies on how to prepare for the future. The book offers basic research along with practically relevant insights, incorporating content for both, those interested in the historical evolution of strategy, military or business wise, as well as decision makers looking for a new perspective on the topic of strategy.

The State of Children's Literature in Ethiopia: With Critical Views

Children's literature criticism comprises both generalists' discussions of the relationship between children's literature and literary theory as well as a literary analysis of specific work or works of literature. But practical children’s literary criticism tends to limit its scope in content analysis giving emphasis for the psychological and educational merits of the literature. This made children literature an under studied young genre in the world of literary scholarship. This is also a reality in Ethiopian Children’s Literature. Even if the history of writing for children in the country can be traced back to the time where writing in the main stream literature began no serious literary criticism is undergone in the area and most books for children are limited to sketchy preschool story books.

The Concept of Author, Text and Reader Theory

The entire twentieth century authentically documents the kaleidoscopic phase of literary interpretation. The large number of literary theories that have emerged till the 1970s view literature in terms of their ideology: some reject the author and accept the text; some accept both while some of them bring the reader in consideration in the act of literary interpretation. This has imparted a multidimensional facet to literary interpretation. In the context of such multidimensional literary interpretation the present book "The Concept of Author, text and Reader Theory - A Critical Analysis traverses succinctly through the labyrinth of contemporary literary thoughts engaged in the making of meaning of a literary work. Apart from dealing with the various theoretical concepts of author, text and the emergence of Reader Theory, this book is an endeavor to reconcile the theoretical differences regarding the place of author, text and reader in the act of interpretation. The book projects a triangular relation among the author, text and reader in the process of making of meaning. Key words: Author, Text, Reader, Meaning, Defamiliarization, Horizon of Expectations, Reader Theory.

This book examines literary analogies in Christian and Jewish sources, culminating in an in-depth analysis of striking parallels and connections between Christian monastic texts (the Apophthegmata Patrum or 'The Sayings of the Desert Fathers') and Babylonian Talmudic traditions. The importance of the monastic movement in the Persian Empire, during the time of the composition and redaction of the Babylonian Talmud, fostered a literary connection between the two religious populations. The shared literary elements in the literatures of these two elite religious communities sheds new light on the surprisingly inclusive nature of the Talmudic corpora and on the non-polemical nature of elite Jewish-Christian literary relations in late antique Persia.

Globalization and Literature

This book presents a state of the art overview of the relationship between globalization studies and literature and literary studies, and the bearing that they have on each other. It engages with the manner in which globalization is thematized in literary works; examines the relationship between globalization theory and literary theory; and discusses the impact of globalization processes on the production and reception of literary texts. Suman Gupta argues that while literature has registered globalization processes in relevant ways, there has been a missed articulation between globalization studies and literary studies. Some of the ways in which this slippage is now being addressed, and may be taken forward, are indicated. In the course of fleshing out this argument such themes as the following are discussed: the manner in which anti globalization protests and world cities have figured in literary works, digitization has remoulded concepts of texts and text editing, theories of postmodernism and postcolonialism that are familiar in literary studies have diverged from and converged with globalization studies, English and Comparative / World Literature as institutional disciplinary spaces are being reconfigured, and industries to do with the circulation of literature are becoming globalized. This book is intended for university level students and teachers, researchers, and other informed readers with an interest in the above issues, and serves both as a survey of the field and an intervention within it.

Complexity the Sixth Competitive Force that Shapes Strategy

The current work at the hand of the reader is written to answer one of the fundamental questions of the contemporary quests in organizational strategy theory and its practice. The work is written because of the author’s great interest as a strategy consultant in applying scientific and practical methods to help his client organizations in questions of strategy but moreover it is actually written from the author’s frustration as a manager, entrepreneur and consultant with the mainstream observation of the notion of strategy and what is generally observed as strategy.The work is not only for students of business administration but of strategy for organizations of all kinds and sizes. Strategy is more than a bad exercise in goal- setting that is mostly not achieved; it’s actually a construction of diagnosis, a viable plan and a ubiquitous action applied simultaneously on a focused goal. The few pages ahead are journeys in thought, observation, reflection and theories constructed for action, but moreover the act of chiseling the structure of strategy out of fluff for the strategist, who the author observes and coins here as the vital safeguard of tomorrow.
