In this collection of conversations that were conducted in Calcutta, at the London School of Economics, through Jewish Book Week, and on the radical website openDemocracy, internationally renowned Jewish scholar Jacqueline Rose explores the debates that have fueled her writing and thinking over three decades. Drawn out by her interlocutors, Rose discusses the difference between political and sexual identity and inquires whether psychoanalysis can be considered a radical form of thought that can be used fruitfully in dialogue about political struggle. Most significantly--since each of these conversations were sparked by her recent and controversial writing on Zionism, Israel, and Palestine--Rose reflects on the role of Jewish dissent in our time. In these conversations, Rose appears courageous, passionate, ethical, and never afraid to engage politically on issues that are of human concern in the ongoing Middle and Near East crisis.

The Social Life of Achievement (Paperback): Nicholas J. Long, Henrietta Moore The Social Life of Achievement (Paperback)
Nicholas J. Long, Henrietta Moore
R480 R447 Discovery Miles 4 470 Save R33 (7%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

What happens when people "achieve"? Why do reactions to "achievement" vary so profoundly? And how might an anthropological study of achievement and its consequences allow us to develop a more nuanced model of the motivated agency that operates in the social world? These questions lie at the heart of this volume. Drawing on research from Southeast Asia, Europe, the United States, and Latin America, this collection develops an innovative framework for explaining achievement's multiple effects-one which brings together cutting-edge theoretical insights into politics, psychology, ethics, materiality, aurality, embodiment, affect and narrative. In doing so, the volume advances a new agenda for the study of achievement within anthropology, emphasizing the significance of achievement as a moment of cultural invention, and the complexity of "the achiever" as a subject position.

Those Who Play with Fire - Gender, Fertility and Transformation in East and Southern Africa (Hardcover): Henrietta Moore, Todd... Those Who Play with Fire - Gender, Fertility and Transformation in East and Southern Africa (Hardcover)
Henrietta Moore, Todd Sanders, Bwire Kaare
R2,703 Discovery Miles 27 030 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Whether initiating girls or healing cattle, bringing rain or protesting taxation, many in Africa share a vision of a world where the cultural, symbolic and cosmic categories of 'male' and 'female' serve, through ritual, to both reimagine and transform the world. Those Who Play With Fire introduces recent gender theory to the analysis of African ethnography, exploring the ways in which ideational gender categories permeate African systems of thought and ritual practices. Thus, the book provides a powerful framework with which to evaluate previous ethnographic material on Africa. In addition, Those Who Play With Fire presents a broad range of new case studies - of hunter-gatherers, agriculturalists and pastoralists - revealing the varied and complex ways in which African ideas and ideals of what it means to be 'male' and 'female' broadly inform and give meaning to a wide range of transformative rituals.

The Future of Anthropological Knowledge (Paperback): Henrietta Moore The Future of Anthropological Knowledge (Paperback)
Henrietta Moore
R1,164 Discovery Miles 11 640 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days


The Future of Anthropological Knowledge the chapters explore the question of the nature of social knowledge from a variety of perspectives and locations such as China, Africa, the USA and elsewhere. By examining the changing nature of anthropological knowledge and of the production of that knowledge, this book challenges the notion that only western societies have produced social theories of modernity and of global scope. Knowledge of society can no longer be restricted to a knowledge of face-to-face social relations but must encompass the effect of technology, global consumption patterns and changing geo-political configurations. The Future of Anthropological Knowledge will be of interest to anthropologists and students of culture and society.

Sexual Assaults of Male Military Personnel (Paperback): Henrietta Moore Sexual Assaults of Male Military Personnel (Paperback)

Females have long been viewed as the primary victims of sexual assault but, based on survey data, RAND estimated that in 2014, about 9,000 to about 13,000 male service-members were sexually assaulted. This book addresses the extent to which DOD has taken actions to prevent and respond to sexual assaults of male service-members; DOD's sexual assault prevention and response program is meeting the medical and mental health-care needs of male service-members; and the culture of the U.S. military poses distinct challenges for preventing and responding to sexual assaults of male service-members.

The Future of Anthropological Knowledge (Hardcover): Henrietta Moore The Future of Anthropological Knowledge (Hardcover)
Henrietta Moore
R2,107 Discovery Miles 21 070 Special order

Anthropology is no longer a singular discipline, but rather a blend of practices engaged in a wide variety of social contexts. New questions have been posed by the challenge which third world, black and feminist scholars have provided to the established agenda of the social sciences and humanities in recent years. It is in this context that the nature and purpose of social knowledge, and in particular anthropological knowledge, comes into particular focus.
The question "what is social knowledge for"? is not intended to provoke an answer, but rather a series of interrogations. In "The Future of Anthropological Knowledge" the chapters explore the question of the nature of social perspectives and locations such as China, Africa, the USA and elsewhere.
By examining the changing nature of anthropological knowledge and of the production of that knowledge, this book challenges the notion that only western societies have produced social theories of modernity and of global scope. Knowledge of society can no longer be restricted to a knowledge of face-to-face social relations but must encompass the effect of technology, global consumption patterns and changing geo-political configurations. "The Future of Anthropological Knowledge" will be of interest to anthropologists and students of culture and society.
