Charles Jones, Richard Vernon
R412 Discovery Miles 4 120 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

From flag-waving to the singing of national anthems, the practices and symbols ofpatriotism are inescapable, and modern politics is increasingly full of appeals topatriotic fervour. But if no-one chooses where they were born, and our ethicalobligations transcend national boundaries, then does patriotism make any sense? Doesit encourage an uncritical attachment to the status quo, or is it a crucial way ofunderstanding and applying our freedoms and moral duties? In this engaging book, Charles Jones and Richard Vernon guide us through thesequestions with razor-sharp clarity. They examine the different ways patriotism has beendefended and explained, from a republican attachment to free and democraticinstitutions to an ethical and historical fabric that makes our entire moral life andidentity possible. They outline its relationship to a range of other key concepts, such asnationalism and cosmopolitanism, and skilfully analyse the issues surroundingpartiality to country and whether we should prioritise the welfare of our compatriotsover outsiders. This concise and lucid volume will be essential for both students and general readerswishing to understand the contemporary resonance and historical development ofpatriotism, and how it intersects with debates about global justice, cosmopolitanismand nationalism.

Director Joseph Losey's classic study of class warfare, adapted for the screen by Harold Pinter from Robin Maugham's original novel. Spoiled young British aristocrat Tony (James Fox) buys a handsome Georgian townhouse and employs Hugo Barrett (Dirk Bogarde) as his manservant. Initially appearing to settle in well to his new position, Barrett, however, soon begins to exert his influence over his master, subtly ingratiating himself whilst plotting his next move, much to the horror of Tony's fiancee Susan (Wendy Craig). As his influence becomes steadily more pervasive, culminating with the hiring of his 'sister' Vera (Sarah Miles) into a position in the house, Barrett's sexual machinations eventually lead to a complete role-reversal, as he finally attains domination over his master.

Collection of feature films directed by Joseph Losey. In 'The Sleeping Tiger' (1954), a psychiatrist brings a criminal into his home as an experiment in rehabilitation after catching the thief red-handed trying to break into his house. The patient seems to be making progress until the psychiatrist's wife falls in love with him putting his recovery back significantly. During his three years in prison, 'The Criminal' (1960), Johnny Bannion (Stanley Baker), has been devising his next robbery. Once out of prison he pulls off the heist and buries the money, but is arrested before he can tell the rest of the gang of its whereabouts. The gang eventually spring him from jail, but make a mistake that may mean they never see the money at all. 'Eva' (1962) is a psychological drama set in Venice, where a Welsh novelist (Baker) falls in love with a scheming, gold-digging Frenchwoman named Eva (Jeanne Moreau). Realising that Eva will never love him, the novelist marries the beautiful Francesca (Virna Lisi) who in turn loses her will to live when she discovers her husband's secretly harboured desires. In 'The Servant' (1963), spoiled young British aristocrat Tony (James Fox) buys a handsome Georgian townhouse and employs Hugo Barrett (Dirk Bogarde) as his manservant. Initially appearing to settle in well to his new position, Barrett soon begins to exert his influence over his master with the overall goal of getting rid of Tony's girlfriend Susan (Wendy Craig) with whom Barrett does not get along. In 'Accident' (1967), two Oxford students, William (Michael York) and Anna (Jacqueline Sassard), crash their car outside their professor Stephen (Bogarde)'s house. The lecturer finds William dead and Anna in shock, and the horrifying spectacle in front of him triggers memories of their previous meeting. It transpires that Anna had been having an affair with one of the professor's colleagues, and, in a flashback to a dinner party, it is revealed what part Stephen had to play in the fall-out of the relationship. In 'The Go-Between' (1970), a young teenage boy, Leo (Dominic Guard), is invited to his wealthy school friend Marcus (Richard Gibson)'s family estate and is drawn into a love affair with Marcus's sister, Marian (Julie Christie). As he discovers that Marian is engaged to be married to Hugh (Edward Fox), a viscount of high-standing in the county, Leo doubts his ethics and starts to figure out a way to get out of the affair. In 'Mr. Klein' (1976), while the Nazis are undergoing the deportation of French Jews from occupied France, a Parisian art dealer (Alain Delon) discovers that he has a Jewish counterpart with the same name, for whom he is mistaken...

This title provides an introduction to the philosophical implications of the recent surge of political and ethical interest in historical redress. Should the British Museum return the Elgin Marbles to Greece? Should settler societies in North America and Australasia compensate the aboriginal people whom they dispossessed? Should Israel have accepted Germany's compensation for Nazi extermination policies? The last twenty years have seen a remarkable surge of political and ethical interest in historical redress - that is, the righting of old wrongs. In this fascinating book, Richard Vernon argues that whatever the kind of redress that's at issue, and whether the wrong is large or small, an important philosophical issue arises. Exploring recent and high profile cases, Vernon focuses on the issue of responsibility. Responsibility isn't something inherited, like property or one's DNA. How, then, can it fall to one generation to make good the wrongs done by another? The book addresses all the main issues and arguments relating to justice, memory, apology and citizenship, and concludes by arguing for a forward-looking approach that focuses on the right of future generations to live just lives. "Think Now" is a new series of books which examines central contemporary social and political issues from a philosophical perspective. These books aim to be accessible, rather than overly technical, bringing philosophical rigour to modern questions which matter the most to us. Provocative yet engaging, the authors take a stand on political and cultural themes of interest to any intelligent reader.

Accountability for Collective Wrongdoing (Paperback): Tracy Isaacs, Richard Vernon Accountability for Collective Wrongdoing (Paperback)
Tracy Isaacs, Richard Vernon
R577 Discovery Miles 5 770 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Ideas of collective responsibility challenge the doctrine of individual responsibility that is the dominant paradigm in law and liberal political theory. But little attention is given to the consequences of holding groups accountable for wrongdoing. Groups are not amenable to punishment in the way that individuals are. Can they be punished - and if so, how - or are other remedies available? The topic crosses the borders of law, philosophy and political science, and in this volume specialists in all three areas contribute their perspectives. They examine the limits of individual criminal liability in addressing atrocity, the meanings of punishment and responsibility, the distribution of group punishment to a group's members, and the means by which collective accountability can be expressed. In doing so, they reflect on the legacy of the Nuremberg Trials, on the philosophical understanding of collective responsibility, and on the place of collective accountability in international political relations.
