Is trust between the government and Australians broken? The country's leading institutions have been ranked among the least trusted in the world at a time when the economy has experienced twenty-seven years of economic growth. This has all happened since the 2016 federal election under the revolving prime ministerships of Malcolm Turnbull and Scott Morrison's first term. Turnbull was the fourth sitting prime minister in a decade to be removed by his own party. What role do these politically turbulent times play in this trust deficit? Scott Morrison has now been elected by the people. What does he and future prime ministers need to do to reboot civic belief in politics? How will history judge the contribution of the Turnbull and Morrison administrations? In From Turnbull to Morrison well-known political journalists including Michelle Grattan, George Megalogenis, Megan Davis, Virginia Haussegger, Mark Kenny and Katharine Murphy and leading academics such as Frank Bongiorno, Mark Evans, Susan Harris-Rimmer, Anne Tiernan, John Warhurst and George Williams examine the institutions, the issues and the leaders at the heart of this crisis. It is crucial reading for champions of liberal democracy. From Turnbull to Morrison: The Trust Divide is the thirteenth volume of Australia's longest running study of Australian Commonwealth Government, started in 1983.

Notions of time are embedded in almost every aspect of performer training, and so contributors to this book look at: age/aging and children in the training context how training impacts over a lifetime the duration of training and the impact of training regimes over time concepts of timing and the 'right' time how time is viewed from a range of international training perspectives collectives, ensembles and fashions in training, their decay or endurance.

It also steps out beyond the more traditional places of training to open up time in relation to contested training practices that take place online, in festival spaces and in folk or amateur practices. Ideal for both instructors and students, each section of this well-illustrated book follows a thematic structure and includes full-length chapters alongside shorter provocations. Featuring contributions from an international range of authors who draw on their backgrounds as artists, scholars and teachers, Time and Performer Training is a major step in our understanding of how time affects the preparation for performance.

Beethoven: Variations on a Life (Hardcover): Mark Evan Bonds Beethoven: Variations on a Life (Hardcover)
Mark Evan Bonds
R377 R313 Discovery Miles 3 130 Save R64 (17%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Despite the ups and downs of his personal life and professional career-even in the face of deafness-Beethoven remained remarkably consistent in his most basic convictions about his art. This inner consistency, the music historian Mark Evan Bonds argues, provides the key to understanding the composer's life and works. Beethoven approached music as he approached life, weighing whatever occupied him from a variety of perspectives: a melodic idea, a musical genre, a word or phrase, a friend, a lover, a patron, money, politics, religion. His ability to unlock so many possibilities from each helps explain the emotional breadth and richness of his output as a whole, from the heaven-storming Ninth Symphony to the eccentric Eighth, and from the arcane Great Fugue to the crowd-pleasing Wellington's Victory. Beethoven's works, Bonds argues, are a series of variations on his life. The iconic scowl so familiar from later images of the composer is but one of many attitudes he could assume and project through his music. The supposedly characteristic furrowed brow and frown, moreover, came only after his time. Discarding tired myths about the composer, Bonds proposes a new way of listening to Beethoven by hearing his music as an expression of his entire self, not just his scowling self.

Just War Theory - A Reappraisal (Paperback): Mark Evans Just War Theory - A Reappraisal (Paperback)
Mark Evans
R641 Discovery Miles 6 410 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Despite the millennial hopes for peace wishfully harboured by so many, the opening years of the twenty-first century have seen the morality of war remain urgently central to political argument around the world. The just war tradition has provided one of the most beguiling frameworks for the question of when it is right to go to war, and how war ought to be conducted. However, criticisms of it are as old as the tradition itself and many now claim that the nature of contemporary warfare has made it truly redundant. This book addresses the criticisms and explores new angles to just war thinking, analysing its practical adequacy in the face of modern-day realities. It is written with the aim of stimulating debate, recasting or revivifying critical reservations, but also powerfully demonstrating how just war theory cannot be ignored if we take seriously the moral questions warfare forces upon us. Key Features * Focuses on individual elements of Just War Theory to clarify specific claims and explore very particular issues * Uses a clear, analytical writing style to ensure clarity for the reader * Raises new questions not addressed in other Just War literature * Focuses on contemporary moral applications of Just War theory * Shows how Just War theory can serve as a basis for anti-war movements

Under brutal siege conditions, running low on food and ammunition, he experiences the full horror of combat. As the casualties begin to mount and the enemy closes in, Evans finds both his leadership and his belief in the war severely tested. Returning home, he is haunted by the memories of Afghanistan.

Arabia's vast Rub Al Khali desert is one of the world's most extreme and inhospitable environments, and in 1930 the race was on to become the first European to cross what is the biggest sand desert on earth. The potential hardship was not to deter Bertram Thomas, the intrepid British explorer who set out to travel from south to north in the winter of 1930-3, guided by Omani Sheikh Saleh Bin Kalut al Rashidi al Kathiri. Challenged by the unknown, they walked for nearly 1,300 kilometres from Salalah on the coast of Oman, through the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, to Doha, the capital of Qatar; it was to be the first recorded crossing, dashing the hopes of Ibn Philby. Now, some 85 years later, leading British explorer Mark Evans has taken on the challenge again, accompanied by an equally intrepid Omani team and crossing the same stretch of desert. Pulling together extensive archive material with contemporary photography Evans presents a dramatic and highly readable account of those 49 days traversing the famous sand sea on foot and by camel - exploration in the grand tradition of the pioneers.

The Singing Voice in Contemporary Cinema (Paperback): Mark Evans, Diane Hughes The Singing Voice in Contemporary Cinema (Paperback)
Mark Evans, Diane Hughes
R857 Discovery Miles 8 570 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This volume focuses on the singing voice in contemporary cinema from 1945 to the present day, and rather than being restricted to one particular genre, considers how the singing voice has helped define and/or confuse genre classification. Typically heard in song, the singing voice is arguably the most expressive of all musical instruments. This volume celebrates the ways in which singing features in film. This includes the singing voice as protagonist, as narrator, as communicator, as entertainer, and as comedic interlude. Whether the singing voice in film is personally expressive, reflexive and distant, or synchronized for entertainment, there is typically interplay between the voice and visual elements. Extending beyond the body of literature on 'the musical', the volume is not about musicals per se. Rather, The Singing Voice in Contemporary Cinema discusses the singing voice as a distinct genre that focuses on the conceptualization and synchronization of the singing voice in the post-War era. It explores the relationship between screen, singing, singer and song; it celebrates the intersection of the singing voice and popular culture. In doing so, the volume will cross multiple disciplines including vocal studies, film studies, film sound studies, and music production (vocal processing).

At only 19 years old, Mark Evans joined AC/DC in 1975 when they were one of the hardest working and loudest rock bands in Australia. In the next few years AC/DC recorded four best-selling albums, and Mark found himself headlining world tours and living the life of a bona fide rock star. His memoir, "Dirty Deeds: My Life Inside and Outside of AC/DC, " is the first book written by an AC/DC insider, giving fans insight not only into the life of Evans but also that of singer Bon Scott (who died tragically in 1980) and other rock 'n' roll icons like George Harrison, Gene Simmons, Alice Cooper, Ronnie Wood, and members of Metallica.
AC/DC remains one of the top-grossing bands of all time, and Mark's memoir is the first to reveal the band dynamic from behind the scenes, painting a portrait of five extremely hardworking, talented, and mischievous musicians who were yet culpable to the demons that drive many bands apart: sudden fame, sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.
