What do you give a man who has everything? A yacht perhaps, or a private jet available just when and whenever you want it? Then you can drop in on the neighbours perhaps, on the Cote D'Azur or Spain, France, Gibraltar, Morocco. Maurice Glickman just wanted to be someone he had always longed to be. Already one of the nouveau riche - the Country Gent, the Squire, the man up there in the house on the hill, where people might point and say: 'There he is...that man of substance...there he goes...that's the person we must look up to, even aspire to be..." or is it!? Is he really the man anyone might look up to, even admire!? Manners mayketh man...so we are told...on his way to the top, Maurice had never learnt the more subtle and delicate arts and finer points of human contact. Pride comes before a fall and was Maurice Glickman about to meet his match, with his seemingly down-at-earth and country neighbour...someone not quite the match for Maurice and his indefinable codes and methods of operation?
This is an autobiography about a kid who grew up in rural Alabama with a dream of becoming a sailor. This book contains events that happened in his growing up years through his induction into the United States Navy. It continues on to tell about his military career, from A-bomb testing in the South Pacific to launching sorties off the coast of North Vietnam. It was the authors intention that this book may, in some way, serve as an inspiration to some of the younger generation and perhaps spur some of the older generation into putting their memoirs into print. Recruiters may also find it valuable for young people thinking of the military as a career.
According to Sigmund Freud, young children are, by nature, "polymorphously perverse" and while their infantile sexuality is swiftly suppressed it is retained in their unconscious adult minds. Tim Noble and Sue Webster's new publication documents in beautiful detail their critically acclaimed site-specific project at the Freud Museum, which was nominated for the prestigious South Bank Prize in 2007. This includes one of their characteristic self-portrait shadow sculptures 'Black Narcissus', a plethora of silicone rubber casts of Webster's fingers and Noble's member in various states of arousal which was installed in Freud's study. There is also detailed documentation and analysis of their complex kinetic sculpture 'Scarlett' that was appropriately sited in the bedroom of Freud's daughter, Anna, the founder of child psychology. Created from modified children's toys and machine parts, 'Scarlett' utilises the actual workbench from the artists' studio, which they have used extensively over the past decade. Triggered by sensors the individual elements of this hybrid machine sculpture become animated to produce a dream-like cornucopia of repressed sexual and sadomasochistic fantasies and transgressions. The publication also provides a fascinating insight into Freud's theories and how they relate to art practice with critical essays from the distinguished American art historian Linda Nochlin and James Putnam who curated the original exhibition.
The advent of the jet airliner all but killed the liner on the Atlantic route but the ships to Australia survived into the 1970s, not just on the liner trade but also carrying emigrants from the UK and Europe to Australia. Many a ten-pound-pom was carried on the ships of Orient, P&O, British India and the foreign vessels of Sitmar, the Greek and Chandris Lines, as well as Italian ships too. Bill Miller and and Tim Noble tell the story of the liners that travelled East of Suez. Ships such as Canberra, Orsova, Oriana, Britannis, Ellinis and Michelangelo are all included in the rare and unseen images.
The work of counterculture artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster, whose art is a complex punk-rock take on modern consumer culture. Enormous neon signs, intricate silhouette portraits constructed of trash heaps, and a work titled Instant Gratification: British artists Tim Noble and Sue Webster thrive on the thrills of illumination, love, language, shadows, garbage, and cash. "British Rubbish" showcases their work in all its splashy glory. Their art evokes both gaudy Vegas culture and down-and-dirty punk rock: a combination of cynical extravagance and a defiant, rebellious sensibility. Extravagant, irreverent, sometimes coarse, and always sharply clever, "British Rubbish" is both a paean to and sly denunciation of conspicuous consumption.
Liberation theology has, since its beginnings over forty years ago, placed the poor at the heart of theology and revealed the ideologies underlying both society and church. Meanwhile, over this period, the progressive church appears to have stagnated and the poor of Latin America have turned increasingly to neo-Pentecostalism. 'The Poor in Liberation Theology' questions whether the effect of liberation theology is to provide a pathway to God or really to construct idols out of the poor. Combining the conceptual language of the philosophers Jean-Luc Marion and Emmanuel Levinas with the methodology of the liberation theologian Clodovis Boff, the volume outlines how liberation theology can work to ensure the poor do not become an ideological construct but remain icons of God. Drawing on a wealth of material from Latin American and Europe, the book demonstrates the continuing validity and importance of liberation theology and its further potential when engaged with contemporary philosophy.
The countries of Europe are seeking to redefine themselves, both individually and in relation to each other. This volume examines the role of the Christian churches at various levels of that process. The" Charta Oecumenica," a ground-breaking document from the Conference of Churches in Europe and the Council of European Bishops' Conferences, aimed to set forth the ecumenical response of the European Christian Churches to the living out of faith in today's world. Four theologians, Protestant, Roman Catholic, Orthodox and Lutheran, respond to this document, assessing its strengths and the areas where further development is required. At least implicitly this discussion raises questions about the nature of catholicity and communion, a topic the following four essays address. What is catholicity, what happens when there is too strong an emphasis on the national church, and are there models of gradual church communion to which the churches could assent? Gradual communion sets out to attain full, including sacramental, unity and the final two essays explore how sacramental theology might assist in this process.
