Download PDF Rape on Prime Time by Lisa M. Cuklanz and published by University of Pennsylvania Press. This book was released on 2010-11-24 with total page 200 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Depictions of rape on television have evolved dramatically, from hard-boiled stories about male detectives to more insightful shows focusing on rape victims. Rape on Prime Time is the first book to examine those changing depictions of rape. Lisa M. Cuklanz reveals that prime-time television programs during the 1970s—usually detective shows—reflected traditional ideas that "real" rape is perpetrated by brutal strangers upon passive victims. Beginning in 1980, depictions of rape began to include attacks by known assailants, and victims began to address their feelings. By 1990, scripts portrayed date and marital rape and paid greater attention to the trial process, reflecting legal reformers' concerns. While previous studies have examined one series or genre, Cuklanz examines programs as dissimilar as Barney Miller, Dallas, The Cosby Show, and Quincy. She outlines the "basic plot" for rape episodes, then traces the historical development of rape themes. In each chapter she includes close analyses of episodes that add depth to findings derived from scripts and taped episodes. Rape on Prime Time provides important insight into the social construction of rape in mainstream mass media since the inception of rape law reform in 1974.

Download PDF The Quest for a Child by Hana Konecna and published by Anshan. This book was released on 2008 with total page 324 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book has been written to provide hope, support, motivation and focus for couples who are trying to conceive a child. It has evolved from a body of research carried out in the form of hundreds of interviews with childless couples, their doctors, and fertility specialists. Dr Konecna, (who was for many years childless herself and therefore has a profound empathy and understanding of the issues) is able to consider the deeply emotional subject of "involuntary childlessness" both from the scientific viewpoint of a professional obstetrician and from the humanitarian aspect of a sympathetic mother herself. "On the Quest for a Child" succeeds on a number of levels - the medical problems causing the inability to conceive, the psychological suffering endured, the remedies and solutions to be considered, and the legal/ethical issues to be confronted - all are dealt with thoroughly, and across an international, multi-cultural range of cases. It is hoped that this book will bring comfort to anyone who is going through the pain of childlessness, but will also be read and valued by medical practitioners, specialists, psychologists, social workers and allied health professionals who deal with childlessness in their daily work.
Download PDF A Cormac McCarthy Companion by Edwin T. Arnold and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2001-10-03 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With essays by Edwin T. Arnold, J. Douglas Canfield, Christine Chollier, George Guillemin, Dianne C. Luce, Jacqueline Scoones, Phillip A. Snyder, Nell Sullivan, and John Wegner The completion of Cormac McCarthy's Border Trilogy--All the Pretty Horses (1992), The Crossing (1994), and Cities of the Plain (1998)--marked a major achievement in American literature. Only ten years earlier this now internationally acclaimed novelist had been called the best unknown writer in America. The trilogy is McCarthy's most ambitious project yet, composed at the height of his mature powers over a period of fifteen years. It is "a miracle in prose," as Robert Hass wrote of its middle volume, an unsentimental elegy for the lost world of the cowboy, the passing of the wilderness, and the fading innocence of post--World War II America. The trilogy is a literary accomplishment with wide appeal, for despite the challenging materials in each book, these volumes remained on bestseller lists for many weeks. This collection of essays is the first book to examine these novels as a trilogy, the first to read them as an integrated whole. Together these explorations of McCarthy's magnum opus serve as an ideal companion reader. Represented here are nine of the most notable Cormac McCarthy scholars, both American and European. Their essays provide a substantial exploration of the trilogy from different perspectives. Included are gender issues, eco-critical approaches, explications of the war or land history underlying the trilogy, studies of narrative voice, dreams, the cowboy tradition, and the pastoral tradition, and considerations of McCarthy's moral and spiritual outlook. These essays complement one another in highly provocative ways, prompting new appreciation of the complexity of McCarthy's work and the profundity of his vision. Edwin T. Arnold and Dianne C. Luce are editors of Perspectives on Cormac McCarthy (University Press of Mississippi). This new volume is an admirable companion to Perspectives, bringing McCarthy scholarship into the 21st century.

Download PDF Explorer Travellers and Adventure Tourism by Jennifer Laing and published by Channel View Publications. This book was released on 2014-08-04 with total page 271 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book examines the nexus between exploring and tourism and argues that exploration travel – based heavily on explorer narratives and the promises of personal challenges and change – is a major trend in future tourism. In particular, it analyses how romanticised myths of explorers form a foundation for how modern day tourists view travel and themselves. Its scope ranges from the 'Golden Age' of imperial explorers in the 19th and early 20th centuries, through the growth of adventure and extreme tourism, to possible future trends including space travel. The volume should appeal to researchers and students across a variety of disciplines, including tourism studies, sociology, geography and history.
Download PDF The Privilege of Crisis by Elahe Haschemi Yekani and published by Campus Verlag. This book was released on 2011-03-07 with total page 321 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Despite the understanding of scholars that masculinity, far from being a natural or stable concept, is in reality a social construction, the culture at large continues to privilege an idealized, coherent male point of view. The Privilege of Crisis draws on the work of authors such as H. Rider Haggard, Rudyard Kipling, and Joseph Conrad—as well as contemporary postcolonial writers such as J. M. Coetzee, Hanif Kureishi and Zadie Smith—to show how recurrent references to a "crisis" of masculinity or the decline of masculinity serve largely to demonstrate and support positions of male privilege.
Download PDF Eldorado and the Quest for Fortune and Glory in South America by Peter O. Koch and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2021-06-21 with total page 255 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book traces the origin of the legend of El Dorado and the various expeditions that set out to locate that mysterious land of untold wealth in South America. Motivated by both fanciful rumors of a golden city ruled by a man who coated himself daily with gold dust, and the more practical allure of a region abundant in cinnamon trees (a spice that was worth its weight in gold to Europeans), many conquistadors convinced themselves that another native empire awaited their conquest. These quests for fortune and glory would lead to an encounter with fierce female warriors who were believed to be the Amazons of ancient Greek lore, and the discovery of the mighty river later named for the legendary Amazon tribe. The first half of this book details the lesser-known accounts of German interest in locating the wealth of a golden kingdom called Xerira and an elusive passage at Venezuela's Lake Maracaibo which supposedly led to the Pacific Ocean. The second section focuses on the various Spanish efforts to discover El Dorado, each of which was eventually doomed to despair, disappointment, and death.
