Abstract

Film criticism is in crisis. Dwelling on the many film journalists made redundant at newspapers, magazines, and other 'old media' in past years, commentators have voiced existential questions about the purpose and worth of the profession in the age of WordPress blogospheres and proclaimed the 'death of the critic'. Bemoaning the current anarchy of internet amateurs and the lack of authoritative critics, many journalists and academics claim that in the digital age, cultural commentary has become dumbed down and fragmented into niche markets. Mattias Freu, arguing against these claims, examines the history of film critical discourse in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States . He demonstrates that since its origins, film criticism has always found itself in crisis: the need to show critical authority and the anxieties over challenges to that authority have been longstanding concerns.

Abstract

Matthias Schneider untersucht vor dem Hintergrund der Bedeutung von Accounts für den elektronischen Rechtsverkehr, inwieweit der Accountinhaber rechtsgeschäftlich für das missbräuchliche Handeln Dritter haftet. Dazu liefert er eine Darstellung der Rechtsprechung zu ähnlich gelagerten Fällen in der Vergangenheit, um vor dem Hintergrund der aktuellen Rechtsprechung die Haftung für den Accountmissbrauch näher zu untersuchen und einer kritischen Würdigung zu unterziehen. Ein Schwerpunkt liegt hierbei auf der Untersuchung der beiden zur Lösung dieser Frage herangezogenen Rechtsinstitute «Handeln unter fremdem Namen» und «Anscheinsvollmacht». Als richtiger Ansatz kann letztlich die Heranziehung eines eigenständigen Rechtsscheintatbestands für den Accountmissbrauch qualifiziert werden.

Abstract

Planning is not a technical and value free activity. Planning is an overt political system that creates both winners and losers. The Planning Polity is a book that considers the politics of development and decision-making, and political conflicts between agencies and institutions within British town and country planning. The focus of assessment is how British planning has been formulated since the early 1990s, and provides an in-depth and revealing assessment of both the Major and Blair governments' terms of office. The book will prove to be an invaluable guide to the British planning system today and the political demands on it. Students and activists within urban and regional studies, planning, political science and government, environmental studies, urban and rural geography, development, surveying and planning, will all find the book to be an essential companion to their work.

Abstract

This text offers descriptions and analyses of some of the different ways in which schools and other educational institutions have started to establish new collaborative relationships in today's competitive educational marketplace. Using case studies, the book describes examples of such collaborative structures.; Educational consortia have been established as a vehicle for professional and curriculum development, as a source of mutual support and as a condition of mutual survival. As the "LEA monopolies" have been forced to shed many of their traditional functions or schools have opted out, schools have found it necessary to re-create parts of their collaborative structures out of sheer self- Interest.; For Some Educators Who Continue To Be Attached To Notions Of "an educational service" and professional collegiality in the provision of such a service, inter-institutional collaboration becomes seen as something to be valued independently of the instrumental benefits which it provides. For this variety of reasons, consortium working and collaborative structures seem set to develop in spite of, or as a necessary antodote to, educational markets. Understanding the role and operation of such structures is a necessity for educational managers in all parts of the educational service.

Abstract

What is at stake for how the Internet continues to evolve is the preservation of its integrity as a single network. In practice, its governance is neither centralised nor unitary; it is piecemeal and fragmented, with authoritative decision-making coming from different sources simultaneously: governments, businesses, international organisations, technical and academic experts, and civil society. Historically, the conditions for their interaction were rarely defined beyond basic technical coordination, due at first to the academic freedom granted to the researchers developing the network and, later on, to the sheer impossibility of controlling mushrooming Internet initiatives. Today, the search for global norms and rules for the Internet continues, be it for cybersecurity or artificial intelligence, amid processes fostering the supremacy of national approaches or the vitality of a pluralist environment with various stakeholders represented. This book provides an incisive analysis of the emergence and evolution of global Internet governance, unpacking the complexity of more than 300 governance arrangements, influential debates and political negotiations over four decades.&#xD;Highly accessible, this book breaks new ground through a wide empirical exploration and a new conceptual approach to governance enactment in global issue domains. A tripartite framework is employed for revealing power dynamics, relying on: a) an extensive database of mechanisms of governance for the Internet at the global and regional level; b) an in-depth analysis of the evolution of actors and priorities over time; and c) a key set of dominant practices observed in the Internet governance communities. It explains continuity and change in Internet-related negotiations, opening up new directions for thinking and acting in this field. &#xD;&#xD;

Abstract

Public Order and Private Lives is a radical examination of the political forces which shape the law and order debate in Britain. Mike Brake and Chris Hale provide a hard-hitting analysis of Conservative policies on Crime, showing that, ironically, Conservative policies have created the very social conditions in which crime has flourished. They argue that the government is undermining basic civil liberties by its increased use of legislation as a means of control and coercion.

Abstract

Située à la frontière du nord du Vietnam et dotée d’un relief accidenté, la province de Cao Bằng, pays des Tày, a longtemps été considérée comme une zone reculée, barbare, insalubre et potentiellement dangereuse pour les Kinh venus du delta. Pour bien administrer cette zone frontalière, le souverain dût accepter les privilèges des chefs autochtones en maintenant ses propres prérogatives comme les éléments symboliques. Mais, à partir de 1820, en visant à intégrer cette région au système administratif officiel du pays, l’empereur Minh Mạng (1820‑1840) a réalisé une politique pour éliminer le pouvoir des gardiens de frontière. Cette réforme est considérée comme la première offensive, et d’ailleurs la plus violente, du pouvoir central à l’encontre des chefs autochtones en zone montagneuse. Cette monographie met en lumière la relation entre la monarchie et les pouvoirs locaux de Cao Bằng des origines aux conséquences de la réforme de Minh Mạng, y compris la rivalité politique entre des chefs locaux sur le plan local. Cette étude rétrospective offre un nouveau regard sur le processus d’intégration des marches frontières du nord du Vietnam et sur les difficultés rencontrées par la cour de Hué dans sa gestion des régions frontalières.

Abstract

New data from a variety of well-known scholars in Mesoamerican archaeology reveal the creation, perpetuation, and contestation of politically authoritative relationships between rulers and subjects and between nobles and commoners. The contributions span the geographic breadth and temporal extent of pre-Columbian Mesoamerica—from Preclassic Oaxaca to the Classic Petén region of Guatemala to the Postclassic Michoacán—and the contributors weave together archaeological, epigraphic, and ethnohistoric data. Grappling with the questions of how those exercising authority convince others to follow and why individuals often choose to recognize and comply with authority, Political Strategies in Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica discusses why the study of political authority is both timely and significant, reviews how scholars have historically understood the operation of political authority, and proposes a new analytical framework to understand how rulers rule.

Abstract

This book looks at how modern philosophers pass on myths about prehistory.Why do political philosophers talk so much about the Stone Age? The state of nature, the origin of property, the origin of government, and the primordial nature of inequality and war are popular topics in political philosophy, but are they being used as more than just illustrative examples? Does the best available evidence from archaeology and anthropology support or conflict with the stories being passed on by political philosophers?This book presents a philosophical look at the origin of civilization, examining political theories to show how claims about prehistory are used and presents evidence that much of what we think we know about human origins comes not from scientific investigation but from the imagination of philosophers.

Abstract

Deutschland hat sich in internationalen Abkommen dazu bekannt, das Menschenrecht auf eine medizinische Versorgung zu achten, zu schützen und zu gewährleisten. Dessen ungeachtet sind in Deutschland Migrantinnen und Migranten ohne Papiere faktisch von der Gesundheitsversorgung ausgeschlossen - Ausnahmen gelten lediglich für medizinische Notfälle, bestimmte Infektionserkrankungen und Schutzimpfungen. Auf Grundlage erstmals durchgeführter Erhebungen an Gesundheitsämtern und Krankenhäusern unternimmt Maren Mylius eine Bestandsaufnahme der tatsächlichen Zugangswege für die Betroffenen und veranschaulicht die Folgen der #on("i")#exklusiven#off("i")# Regelungen anhand von Fallbeispielen und Interviews.
