Literature After Globalization by Philip Leonard Summary

Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2014 Literature after Globalization offers a detailed study of recent literary and theoretical responses to technology, globalization, and national identity. Focusing on texts of the the 1990s and 2000s, particularly novels and other writing by Mark Danielewski, Hari Kunzru, Indra Sinha, and Neal Stephenson, it charts a departure from narratives of globalization which declare the collapse of national cultures, and it considers how national sovereignty has been reinvented and reasserted in the face of technology's transnational effects. Drawing upon recent theoretical responses to technology and culture (including work by Yochai Benkler, Manuel Castells, Gilles Deleuze, Jacques Derrida, N. Katherine Hayles, Paul Virilio, and McKenzie Wark) this book will explore how, in these novels, the notion of an inclusive globalization has been replaced by a sense of national globalism.

Economie de l'amour by Victor Beauvais Summary

« J’ai vingt-quatre ans et je laisse tout le monde dire que c’est le plus bel âge de la vie. Si un jour je suis vieux, je pourrai raconter aux jeunes que je suis né dans les années 1980, et même si je ne dansais pas le Mia, ils trouveront ça plus merveilleux que si j’étais né dans les années 1990. Je suis né dans un temps sans téléphone portable, sans internet, où fumer était normal, je serai parmi les derniers à avoir vu ça. Les jeunes me trouveront très vieux. » De Nanterre où il enseigne l’économie à des étudiants désabusés aux salles de cinéma où il apprend ce que l’amour devrait être, le narrateur d’Économie de l’amour se présente comme un observateur du monde « anguleux, hérissé de piquants » et dénué de toute complaisance. Pour lui, ni l’amour ni l’économie ne sont des domaines maîtrisables, alors même que tout le monde clame haut et fort en connaître les lois. Trop timide, souvent déçu, la solitude le guette. Il y a bien la jeune fille du magasin de photos, pourtant... Ne pourrait-elle pas lui faire découvrir les algorithmes du cœur ? Parce qu’« avoir fait Polytechnique » n’est pas synonyme de bonheur, parce qu’il est possible d’admirer à la fois Godard et Britney Spears ou de s’enfermer une semaine à Ribérac pour « vivre de l’inconnu », cet enfant de notre siècle, à la fois tendre et irritant, bouscule nos repères et pointe avec une lucidité haute en couleurs les travers de notre société.

Disturbing Times by Scott T. Firsing Summary

Most of us throughout the course of our everyday lives never step back and examine what is going on around us. We are so caught up on counting the days until Friday or checking our bank accounts online, that we fail to see what is occurring around the globe. For some of you the information contained within this book might sound familiar. Perhaps you read a brief headline or watched a thirty-second news clip on one of the subjects. This feeling of having read or seen something before is perfectly normal, and I promise that this sensation will come over you at least once while reading this book. Due to the vast amount of information our brain takes in on a daily basis, it needs to discard most things we encounter in everyday life. The purpose of Disturbing Times is not only to bring people back those discarded headlines but also to educate the reader on various other global issues. These topics are of great importance and they cannot afford to be forgotten. "Disturbing Times" combines the latest available data from various sources. Its main goal is to prepare humanity for a global future and its potential impact on our lives. This book aims to provoke such critical thinking by presenting a realistic picture of the world that surrounds us. Although at times the facts and figures presented here might be somewhat scary, this is the true reality in which we live. Various people have contributed to the making of Disturbing Times. I would like to thank Dr. Donald Foster-Gross for taking hours upon hours out of his busy schedule to edit my book, and for all his comments and suggestions. I also want to acknowledge Dr Ken Baucom for his advice and guidance.

Paul Verhoeven, Total Spectacle by Axel Cadieux Summary

Livre collectif sous la direction d’Axel Cadieux avec Benoit Marchisio, Hugues Derolez, Linda Belhadj et Julien Abadie. Suivi d’un entretien exclusif avec le cinéaste. Paul Verhoeven est insaisissable. Tour à tour qualifié de misogyne et féministe, fasciste et libertaire, vendu aux sirènes d’Hollywood, puis artiste sauvage et intenable, le cinéaste trace son propre sillon, pulvérisant de l’intérieur les codes des genres qu’il se réapproprie. La puissance manipulatrice de l’image est au cœur de son cinéma : qu’il traite des systèmes politiques qui écrasent les individus, de la place de la femme au sein de nos sociétés ou du devenir du corps humain face à la technologie, ses procédés retors et l’ambiguité de son message donnent à ses films une portée subversive hors du commun. De Basic Instinct à Elle en passant par Starship Troopers, son œuvre n’a cessé, depuis plus de quarante ans, de susciter controverses et fascination. Axel Cadieux est journaliste pour Sofilm, Society, Arte et Ciné+. Il est également l’auteur de plusieurs essais sur le cinéma : Une série de tueurs (Capricci, 2014), Contes de l’au-delà : Le cinéma de M. Night Shyamalan (Vendémiaire, 2015), L’horizon de Michael Mann (Playlist Society, 2015) et prépare des ouvrages sur la chaîne HBO et sur la série Twin Peaks ; Benoit Marchisio est journaliste pour Sofilm. Il prépare un ouvrage sur la maison de production Propaganda ; Hugues Derolez suit actuellement un cursus à la Femis, spécialisé dans les séries TV. Il a dirigé le livre Contes de l’au-delà : Le cinéma de M. Night Shyamalan ; Linda Belhadj, installée à Londres, est journaliste cinéma et tient le blog Almost Kael ; Julien Abadie, installé à Montréal, est journaliste économique, anciennement critique de cinéma.

To Seek Out New Worlds by J. Weldes Summary

This volume explores the science fiction/world politics intertext. Through detailed analyses of such texts as Blade Runner, Stalker, Star Trek, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the chapters in this volume examine the complex and sometimes contradictory relations between world politics, both as discipline and as practice, and discourses of science fiction. Offering a novel combination of popular culture analysis with major theoretical and empirical issues concerning world politics, Science Fiction and World Politics provides insights into the discursive constitution of both science fiction and world politics while highlighting the occasional challenges that the science fiction/world politics intertext launches at our common sense.

I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie by Roger Ebert Summary

Roger Ebert awards at least two out of four stars to most of the more than 150 movies he reviews each year. But when the noted film critic does pan a movie, the result is a humorous, scathing critique far more entertaining than the movie itself. I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie is a collection of more than 200 of Ebert's most biting and entertaining reviews of films receiving a mere star or less from the only film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize. Ebert has no patience for these atrocious movies and minces no words in skewering the offenders. Witness: Armageddon * (1998) --The movie is an assault on the eyes, the ears, the brain, common sense, and the human desire to be entertained. No matter what they're charging to get in, it's worth more to get out. The Beverly Hillbillies* (1993)--Imagine the dumbest half-hour sitcom you've ever seen, spin it out to ninety-three minutes by making it even more thin and shallow, and you have this movie. It's appalling. North no stars (1994)--I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it. Police Academy no stars (1984)--It's so bad, maybe you should pool your money and draw straws and send one of the guys off to rent it so that in the future, whenever you think you're sitting through a bad comedy, he could shake his head, chuckle tolerantly, and explain that you don't know what bad is. Dear God * (1996)--Dear God is the kind of movie where you walk out repeating the title, but not with a smile. The movies reviewed within I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie are motion pictures you'll want to distance yourself from, but Roger Ebert's creative and comical musings on those films make for a book no movie fan should miss.

The Modern Amazons by James Ursini,Dominique Mainon Summary

(Book). The Modern Amazons: Warrior Women on Screen documents the public's seemingly insatiable fascination with the warrior woman archetype in film and on television. The book examines the cautious beginnings of new roles for women in the late fifties, the rapid development of female action leads during the burgeoning second-wave feminist movement in the late sixties and seventies, and the present-day onslaught of female action characters now leaping from page to screen. The book itself is organized into chapters that group women warriors into sub-genres, e.g., classic Amazons like Xena Warrior Princess and the women of the Conan films; superheroes and their archenemies such as Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and Catwoman; revenge films such as the Kill Bill movies; Sexploitation and Blaxploitation films such as Coffy and the Ilsa trilogy; Hong Kong cinema and warriors like Angela Mao, Cynthia Rothrock, and Zhang Ziyi; sci-fi warriors from Star Trek , Blade Runner , and Star Wars ; supersleuths and spies like the Avengers and Charlie's Angels; and gothic warriors such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Kate Beckinsale in Underworld and Van Helsing . In addition, the book is lavishly illustrated with over 400 photos of these popular-culture icons in action, interesting articles and sidebars about themes, trends, weapons, style, and trivia, as well as a complete filmography of more than 150 titles.
