Desert Lake: Art, Science and Stories from Paruku
Desert Lake is a book combining artistic, scientific and Indigenous views of a striking region of north-western Australia. Paruku is the place that white people call Lake Gregory. It is Walmajarri land, and its people live on their Country in the communities of Mulan and Billiluna.

This is a story of water. When Sturt Creek flows from the north, it creates a massive inland Lake among the sandy deserts. Not only is Paruku of national significance for waterbirds, but it is has also helped uncover the past climatic and human history of Australia.

The Walmajarri people of Paruku understand themselves in relation to Country, a coherent whole linking the environment, the people and the Law that governs their lives. These understandings are encompassed by the Waljirri or Dreaming and expressed through the songs, imagery and narratives of enduring traditions. Desert Lake is embedded in this broader vision of Country and provides a rich visual and cross-cultural portrait of an extraordinary part of Australia.

The Bad Citizen in Classical Athens

FREEDownload : The Bad Citizen in Classical Athens

Matthew R. Christ "The Bad Citizen in Classical Athens"
Cambridge University Press | 2006-10-02 | ISBN: 0521864321 | 262 pages | PDF | 3 MB

The Bad Citizen in Classical Athens
This book provides a fresh perspective on Athenian democracy by exploring bad citizenship, both as a reality and an idea, in classical Athens, from the late sixth century down to 322. If called upon, Athenian citizens were expected to support their city through military service and financial outlay. These obligations were fundamental to Athenian understandings of citizenship and it was essential to the city's well-being that citizens fulfill them. The ancient sources, however, are full of allegations that individuals have avoided these duties or performed them deficiently. Claims of draft evasion, cowardice on the battlefield, and avoidance of liturgies and the war tax are common. By examining the nature and scope of bad citizenship in Athens and the city's responses – institutional and ideological – to the phenomenon, this study aims to illuminate the relationship between citizen and city under the Athenian democracy, and more broadly, the tension between private interests and public authority in human societies.

Medical Visions: Producing the Patient Through Film, Television, and Imaging Technologies

FREEDownload : Medical Visions: Producing the Patient Through Film, Television, and Imaging Technologies

Medical Visions: Producing the Patient Through Film, Television, and Imaging Technologies by Kirsten Ostherr
2013 | ISBN: 019973724X, 0199737258 | English | 320 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Medical Visions: Producing the Patient Through Film, Television, and Imaging Technologies
How do visual images shape the practice of medicine? What role does visual representation play in the cultivation of medical ways of seeing? And how has medicine's visual culture changed in the digital age?

Kirsten Ostherr's ambitious study explores 120 years of medical image-making to explain how visual representations shape medical education and practice. Marshaling powerful, vivid examples she demonstrates how medical images created by the healthcare industry, documentary filmmakers, experimental artists, and the mass media acquire cultural meaning and influence doctors' and patients' understandings of health and disease. Her analysis proceeds chronologically, turning from the earliest experiments with medical filmmaking by the American College of Surgeons, to the place of health films in the "golden age" of instructional film in the 1960s. Ostherr considers the shift to television as the dominant medium of health education, highlighting the evolving status of realism, the techniques employed to bridge the entertainment-education divide, the role of expert consultants and sponsors, and the tradeoffs made by professionals to reach a broad audience. The rise of physician advice segments on newsmagazines forms a transition between medical dramas like Marcus Welby, MD and more recent reality shows like Boston Med and Doctor 90210. Concluding with a section on advertising and social media in the health care setting, the book ends with ten key lessons for the future of medical media.

Eating Anxiety: The Perils of Food Politics

FREEDownload : Eating Anxiety: The Perils of Food Politics

Chad Lavin, "Eating Anxiety: The Perils of Food Politics"
English | ISBN: 0816680922, 0816680914 | 2013 | 240 pages | PDF | 2 MB

Eating Anxiety: The Perils of Food Politics
Debates about obesity are really about the meaning of responsibility. The trend toward local foods reflects the changing nature of space due to new communication technologies. Vegetarian theory capitalizes on biotechnology's challenge to the meaning of species. And food politics, as this book makes powerfully clear, is actually about the political anxieties surrounding globalization.

In Eating Anxiety, Chad Lavin argues that our culture's obsession with diet, obesity, meat, and local foods enacts ideological and biopolitical responses to perceived threats to both individual and national sovereignty. Using the occasion of eating to examine assumptions about identity, objectivity, and sovereignty that underwrite so much political order, Lavin explains how food functions to help structure popular and philosophical understandings of the world and the place of humans within it. He introduces the concept of digestive subjectivity and shows how this offers valuable resources for rethinking cherished political ideals surrounding knowledge, democracy, and power.

Exploring discourses of food politics, Eating Anxiety links the concerns of food-especially issues of sustainability, public health, and inequality-to the evolution of the world order and the possibilities for democratic rule. It forces us to question the significance of consumerist politics and-simultaneously-the relationship between politics and ethics, public and private.

A Different Christianity: Early Christian Esotericism and Modern Thought

FREEDownload : A Different Christianity: Early Christian Esotericism and Modern Thought

A Different Christianity: Early Christian Esotericism and Modern Thought By Robin Amis
Publisher: St.ate Unive.rsity of New York Press 1995 | 422 Pages | ISBN: 079142572X , 0791425711 | PDF | 12 MB

A Different Christianity: Early Christian Esotericism and Modern Thought
This book presents the esoteric original core of Christianity with its concern for illuminating and healing the inner life of the individual. It is a bridge to the often difficult doctrines of the early church fathers, explaining the spiritual psychology of the fathers that underlies the current renewal of spirituality in the Greek church. This renewal, like this book, is closely linked to the understandings of the modern monks and abbots on Mount Athos. A Different Christianity is useful to the practitioner, as well as to the scholar, providing new insights into the problems of studying and following the spiritual path outside of a monastery.

City Dreams, Country Schemes: Community and Identity in the American West

FREEDownload : City Dreams, Country Schemes: Community and Identity in the American West

City Dreams, Country Schemes: Community and Identity in the American West (The Urban West Series) by Kathleen A. Brosnan and Amy L. Scott
English | ISBN: 0874178517 | 2011 | PDF | 325 pages | 3 MB
The American West, from the beginning of Euro-American settlement, has been shaped by diverse ideas about how to utilize physical space and natural environments to create cohesive, sometimes exclusive community identities.

City Dreams, Country Schemes: Community and Identity in the American West
When westerners developed their towns, they constructed spaces and cultural identities that reflected alternative understandings of modern urbanity. The essays in City Dreams, Country Schemes utilize an interdisciplinary approach to explore the ways that westerners conceptualized, built, and inhabited urban, suburban, and exurban spaces in the twentieth century.

The contributors examine such topics as the attractions of open space and rural gentrification in shaping urban development; the role of tourism in developing national parks, historical sites, and California's Napa Valley; and the roles of public art, gender, and ethnicity in shaping urban centers. City Dreams, Country Schemes reveals the values and expectations that have shaped the West and the lives of the people who inhabit it.
