Reporting Elections - Rethinking the Logic of Campaign Coverage (Paperback): Stephen Cushion, Richard Thomas Reporting Elections - Rethinking the Logic of Campaign Coverage (Paperback)
Stephen Cushion, Richard Thomas
R473 Discovery Miles 4 730 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

How Elections are reported has important implications for the health of democracy and informed citizenship. But, how informative are the news media during campaigns? What kind of logic do they follow? How well do they serve citizens? Based on original research as well as the most comprehensive assessment of election studies to date, Cushion and Thomas examine how campaigns are reported in many advanced Western democracies. In doing so, they engage with debates about the mediatization of politics, media systems, information environments, media ownership, regulation, political news, horserace journalism, objectivity, impartiality, agenda-setting, and the relationship between media and democracy more generally. Focusing on the most recent US and UK election campaigns, they consider how the logic of Election coverage could be rethought in ways that better serve the democratic needs of citizens. Above all, they argue that Election reporting should be driven by a public logic, where the agenda of voters takes centre stage in the campaign and the policies of respective political parties receive more airtime and independent scrutiny. The book is essential reading for scholars and students in political communication and journalism studies, political science, media and communication studies.

A fascinating and enlightening homage to the wealth of England's cultural heritage, the 7th Earl of Bradford's charmingly illustrated recipe book should take pride of place on the shelves of historian and gourmand alike. Introducing the history of English food and cooking, and the philosophy behind his successful Porters restaurant in London's Covent Garden, Richard Bradford and his co-author, food writer Carol Wilson, write lovingly about the countryside and simple, high-quality produce. From crenellated and turreted spiced meat pies to the quintessentially English institution of afternoon tea; from the kitchens of great aristocratic houses to humble cottages, the reader will feel inspired to recreate an eclectic selection of dishes with easy-to-follow recipes. With numerous practical tips, anecdotes from Lord Bradford's private and professional kitchens, and suggestions for putting fresh spin on classics, this collection of over 100 sweet and savoury recipes reveals the pleasure in preparing a simple asparagus dish or a rich dark Christmas Pudding. 'Porters English Cookery Bible' is an indispensable companion that tempts us to discover the delicious, and often unexpected, variety of dishes from all regions of England.

Consumer Expectations - Micro Foundations and Macro Impact (Paperback): Richard Thomas Curtin Consumer Expectations - Micro Foundations and Macro Impact (Paperback)
Richard Thomas Curtin
R919 Discovery Miles 9 190 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Richard Curtin has directed the University of Michigan's consumer sentiment surveys for more than four decades. His analyses of recent trends in consumer expectations are regularly covered in the worldwide press. In this book, Curtin presents a new theory of expectations. Whereas conventional theories presume that consumers play a passive role in the macro economy, simply reacting to current trends in incomes, prices, and interest rates, Curtin proposes a new empirically consistent theory. He argues that expectations are formed by an automatic process that utilizes conscious and nonconscious processes, passion and reason, information from public and private sources, and social networks. Consumers ultimately reach a decision that serves both the micro decision needs of individuals and reflects the common influence of the macro environment. Drawing on empirical observations, Curtin not only demonstrates the importance of consumer sentiment, but also how it can foreshadow the cyclical turning points in the economy.

R605 R549 Discovery Miles 5 490 Save R56 (9%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Winner of the Lincoln Prize
Acclaimed historian Doris Kearns Goodwin illuminates Lincoln's political genius in this highly original work, as the one-term congressman and prairie lawyer rises from obscurity to prevail over three gifted rivals of national reputation to become president.
On May 18, 1860, William H. Seward, Salmon P. Chase, Edward Bates, and Abraham Lincoln waited in their hometowns for the results from the Republican National Convention in Chicago. When Lincoln emerged as the victor, his rivals were dismayed and angry.
Throughout the turbulent 1850s, each had energetically sought the presidency as the conflict over slavery was leading inexorably to secession and civil war. That Lincoln succeeded, Goodwin demonstrates, was the result of a character that had been forged by experiences that raised him above his more privileged and accomplished rivals. He won because he possessed an extraordinary ability to put himself in the place of other men, to experience what they were feeling, to understand their motives and desires.
It was this capacity that enabled Lincoln as president to bring his disgruntled opponents together, create the most unusual cabinet in history, and marshal their talents to the task of preserving the Union and winning the war.
We view the long, horrifying struggle from the vantage of the White House as Lincoln copes with incompetent generals, hostile congressmen, and his raucous cabinet. He overcomes these obstacles by winning the respect of his former competitors, and in the case of Seward, finds a loyal and crucial friend to see him through.
This brilliant multiple biography is centered on Lincoln's mastery of men and how it shaped the most significant presidency in the nation's history.

Wisdom comes in many forms, and the search for wisdom has many expressions. In Dharma Delight, celebrated New York abstract artist and Zen student Rodney Alan Greenblat uses light-hearted, inviting narrative and vivid pop art paintings to celebrate the joys of living life from the inside out. Part graphic guide book, part personal testimony, part art book, Dharma Delight illustrates how seeking the path of compassion and acceptance can be as zany and exuberant, as it is profound and rewarding. This thoroughly modern and accessible exploration of Enlightenment, including what it is and where to seek it, shows us how to recognize the perfection in ourselves. Sutras (teachings), bodhisattvas (enlightened beings), and jataka tales (parables) are presented in a way that is simple, upbeat, and fun to read. The colourful, inspiring paintings, some of which are new and some of which are well-known within the New York art scene and beyond, are an imaginative and affirming mind's-eye view of Buddhist teaching today. Dharma Delight is greatly appealing to all ages, and together, the words and illustrations are a warm and cheerful invitation to Buddhism newcomers and a cool splash of refreshment to any traveller on the road to Enlightenment.

This is Part 2 of a two-volume set. Since Oscar Zariski organized a meeting in 1954, there has been a major algebraic geometry meeting every decade: Woods Hole (1964), Arcata (1974), Bowdoin (1985), Santa Cruz (1995), and Seattle (2005). The American Mathematical Society has supported these summer institutes for over 50 years. Their proceedings volumes have been extremely influential, summarizing the state of algebraic geometry at the time and pointing to future developments. The most recent Summer Institute in Algebraic Geometry was held July 2015 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, sponsored by the AMS with the collaboration of the Clay Mathematics Institute. This volume includes surveys growing out of plenary lectures and seminar talks during the meeting. Some present a broad overview of their topics, while others develop a distinctive perspective on an emerging topic. Topics span both complex algebraic geometry and arithmetic questions, specifically, analytic techniques, enumerative geometry, moduli theory, derived categories, birational geometry, tropical geometry, Diophantine questions, geometric representation theory, characteristic $p$ and $p$-adic tools, etc. The resulting articles will be important references in these areas for years to come.

Across four different districts of a city that has torn itself to shreds, four interweaving stories, told by four different eminent crime writers, play out. In 'Four Corners' a morally dubious banker must keep his employer happy at any cost. In 'Punhos Sagrados' a boxer finds himself torn between honour and the woman he loves, who isn't his wife. 'Golden Geese' follows a criminal with a terrifying condition who must come to terms with the life he's led. Finally, 'Jamais Vu' provides a stunning denouement as a man searches endlessly for his missing daughter.

The stories of the men and women who dug for gold on Williams Creek are told in this revised and updated edition of a Canadian bestseller. The legendary town of Barkerville is flourishing today, just as it did more than 150 years ago, but this time under the care of professional and amateur historians. Richard Thomas Wright peels back the pages of history as he unearths the area's history and chronicles the fortunes and the follies of gold-rush-era Barkerville. The result of years of around-the-world research, Barkerville and the Cariboo Goldfields brings to life the men and women of the creeks who came in search of gold and left their mark on BC history. Wright mined the archives to bring forth new information on the development of the Cariboo goldfields and nearby places of interest. "Barkerville" includes dozens of little-known historical photos and a complete index. It is the best, most comprehensive source of detailed information on this important national heritage site.

R1,731 Discovery Miles 17 310 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book provides a set of integrated frameworks-capital, systems, and objects-that transcend managerial or technology hype by focusing on the long-term fundamentals that sustain organizational success. Many organizations are currently addressing two important transformational issues: ecological sustainability and digitization. Sustainability is a goal, an end, and digitization is a process, a means to achieve a goal. This book introduces a flexible model that can be applied to current and future organizational challenges, including sustainability and digitization, because the fundamentals are constant. This book is designed to serve two purposes for the readers: first, to present three conceptual foundations for designing and operating organizations (capital, systems, and objects in section 1); and second, to provide a reference source for implementing these ideas in an organization (sections 2 and 3). The first section of the book, chapters 1 through 7, sets forth the conceptual foundations. The chapters mix concepts and practical examples to give a new way of thinking about the setting in which one may work many days each year. The second section provides details and associated examples of every one of the thirty-six forms of capital conversion. It also illustrates how the five foundational systems support capital conversion in a variety of ways. Finally, the third section is about measuring capital and systems. The book will resonate with practitioners and students of strategy, leadership, and organizational design. It is critical reading for leaders, industry experts, and general readers who want to understand how over thousands of years the capital creation system has developed today's world and will fashion its future.
