Double bill of US comedies. 'The Internship' (2013) stars Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as two former salesmen who, never having managed to come to grips with the digital age, are left high and dry when their employer suddenly decides to call it a day. Staking everything on one last throw of the dice, the pair, defying all the odds, somehow manage to get themselves accepted onto a coveted internship at tech giants Google. But will they be able to keep up the facade once they take up their positions? In 'The Watch' (2012) Ben Stiller, Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard Ayoade play a group of friends who form a neighbourhood watch group. While Evan Trautwig (Stiller), a newcomer to the suburban neighbourhood, may have a legitimate reason for forming a crime watch group following the recent murder of a friend, it is clear that for most of the men ulterior motives are at work. Indeed, Bob Finnerty (Vaughn) seems to spend a lot more time examining the dating habits of his daughter, Chelsea (Erin Moriarty), than he does looking for threats. However, when the men stumble across what appears to be an alien plan to destroy humankind, they understand where their responsibilities lie and set out to counter the threat.

`An entertaining book, written with Fort's characteristic conversational style... A real pleasure to read' - BBC Countryfile `A wide-ranging, intelligent and bracingly enjoyable book' - The Literary Review `Meticulously researched and seasoned with wry humour, this is a perceptive and richly rewarding read' - Mail on Sunday We have lived in villages a long time. The village was the first model for communal living. Towns came much later, then cities. Later still came suburbs, neighbourhoods, townships, communes, kibbutzes. But the village has endured. Across England, modernity creeps up to the boundaries of many, breaking the connection the village has with the land. With others, they can be as quiet as the graveyard as their housing is bought up by city `weekenders', or commuters. The ideal chocolate box image many holidaying to our Sceptred Isle have in their minds eye may be true in some cases, but across the country the heartbeat of the real English village is still beating strongly - if you can find it. To this mission our intrepid historian and travel writer Tom Fort willingly gets on his trusty bicycle and covers the length and breadth of England to discover the essence of village life. His journeys will travel over six thousand years of communal existence for the peoples that eventually became the English. Littered between the historical analysis, are personal memories from Tom of the village life he remembers and enjoys today in rural Oxfordshire.

The English Channel is the busiest waterway in the world. Ferries steam back and forth, trains thunder through the tunnel. The narrow sea has been crucial to our development and prosperity. It helps define our notion of Englishness, as an island people, a nation of seafarers. It is also our nearest, dearest playground where people have sought sun, sin and bracing breezes. Tom Fort takes us on a fascinating, discursive journey from east to west, to find out what this stretch of water means to us and what is so special about the English seaside, that edge between land and seawater. He dips his toe into Sandgate's waters, takes the air in Hastings and Bexhill, chews whelks in Brighton, builds a sandcastle in Sandbanks, sunbathes in sunny Sidmouth, catches prawns off the slipway at Salcombe and hunts a shark off Looe. Stories of smugglers and shipwreck robbers, of beachcombers and samphire gatherers, gold diggers and fossil hunters abound.

Collection of six films starring Harrison Ford. '42' (2013) is a biographical drama about African-American baseball player Jackie Robinson, here portrayed by Chadwick Boseman. In 1945, having been spotted by a scout, Robinson is signed by Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey (Ford) and becomes the first black man to play in the Major League. Despite his talent, Robinson is met with opposition, even from his fellow players, because of his race. As he tries to keep his own frustrations in check, he excels in his sport and gradually receives the recognition he deserves. 'Blade Runner' (1982), Ridley Scott's cult classic, is set in a neon noir version of 21st Century Los Angeles. Ex-cop Rick Deckard (Ford) is hired to track down a group of androids who have escaped from a satellite colony. As two of the AWOL 'replicants' (Rutger Hauer and Daryl Hannah) seek refuge in a geneticist's house, Deckard takes his investigation to the Tyrell Corporation, where he falls in love with Rachael (Sean Young), herself an android, but with a memory chip that convinces her she is human. In 'Firewall' (2006) Ford stars as Jack Stanfield, an average family man in Seattle who heads up the hi-tech security team at his local bank. But following a seemingly trivial case of identity theft, Jack's life is turned upside down when his wife (Virginia Madsen) and two children are kidnapped. The ransom is $100 million which the kidnappers, led by Bill Cox (Paul Bettany), want Jack to obtain for them via his expert computer skills. Initially compliant, Jack is soon irked by Cox and his cronies to the point where he decides to risk everything to get his family back and bring the bad guys to justice. In 'Frantic' (1988) American doctor Richard Walker (Ford) checks into a Paris hotel with his wife Sondra (Betty Buckley) to attend a conference and celebrate their wedding anniversary. However, shortly after arriving at the hotel Sondra disappears and soon Richard is plunged into a nightmare kidnap scenario, roaming the streets of Paris trying to find a lead in the search for his missing wife. His only clue comes in the form of drugged-up young punk Michelle (Emmanuelle Seigner). In 'Presumed Innocent' (1990) Ford plays Rusty Sabich, an attorney who finds himself charged with murder. The victim (Greta Scacchi) was a colleague of his with whom he had a brief but intense affair and Rusty finds himself in need of a defence lawyer. In 'The Fugitive' (1993), based on the 1960s American television series, eminent Chicago surgeon Dr Richard Kimble (Ford), married to wealthy heiress Helen (Sela Ward), arrives home one night to find his wife murdered and a one-armed man in his house. Due to incriminating evidence and prime motivation, Kimble is wrongly convicted for murder. However, on his way to death row he is involved in a spectacular train crash that precipitates his escape. Kimble then strives to prove his innocence whilst staying one step ahead of the dogged US Marshal Sam Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones).

Francesco Forte
R1,181 Discovery Miles 11 810 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

In response to the idea that alternative theories, ideologies and institutions of public economics are unsatisfactory, this important and path-breaking book deals with the principles of economics using a more realistic 'tempered public choice approach'. Opening with an introduction on the development of the economic theory of public finance, Francesco Forte develops a discourse based on a theoretical framework of welfare economics. Here, the assumption of 'homo oeconomicus' is replaced by that of an average man with imperfect rationality and imperfect ethical constraints, and social welfare functions are replaced by equilibrium solutions in 'games' played by contracting parties at constitutional and post-constitutional stages. The positive and normative theory of public goods becomes much more complex, and merit wants are evaluated from an individualistic perspective. Theories of public expenditure, public revenues and the interrelation between various levels of government are also analysed. The public choice approach combined with theoretical welfare economics and institutions will prove a stimulating and engaging read for those with a special interest in public sector economics, public choice and Austrian economics.

R1,046 Discovery Miles 10 460 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

A fascinating insight into how regional organizations in Europe and East Asia are currently grappling with a striking number of essentially similar challenges. This issue-based overview of political integration focuses on the differences and similarities in regional integration levels and processes in the two regions, to examine how the long-term future, role and impact of organizations such as the EU and ASEAN may depend heavily on how well they deal with complex and conflict-laden issues in the next few years. This volume analyzes the historical development, current state and prospective future evolution of political integration in the two regions. These leading authors identify key variables that account for the contrasting political integration levels, clearly demonstrating and explaining why the rhythm of integration in both regions varies. With contributions from both Asian and European scholars on each topic, this book delivers: comparative rather than a single region focus breakdowns of regional integration into key issue areas analysis of monetary cooperation and integration incisive assessments of institutional reform key topics of enlargement, including: identity, distributional equity, the distribution of power and effectiveness or decision-making efficiency discussion of regional and international security crises expert scholarship from both European and Asian perspectives This volume will be of great interest to students and scholars of IPE, international relations, political science, contemporary history and European studies and Asian studies.

Out of History brings together exciting and innovative work in History and the Humanities. Drawing upon papers which have been presented at the South African Contemporary History and Humanities Seminar at the University of the Western Cape, the book reflects upon how this space fashioned new histories of the South African past over the last twenty years. Written by leading scholars in fields of visual history, public history, heritage, linguistics, oral history and postcolonial studies, the contributions address critical questions about the production of academic knowledge and the status of the Humanities in the post-apartheid present. Through offering a critique of nationalist narratives, the chapters explore the limits of historical representations, providing new paths to rethink memory, the archive, creative writing, disciplinary methodologies and the legacies of colonialism.

PSYCHEDELICS / BIOGRAPHY"Timothy Leary's Dead. No, no no no, he's outside, looking in." The Moody Blues, "Legend of a Mind" "Tim was a chieftain. He stomped on the terra, and he left his elegant hoof prints on all our lives."Hunter S. Thompson "Tim Leary probably made more people happy than anybody else in history." Terence McKenna "What I learned from Tim didn't have anything to do with drugs but it had everything to do with getting high. His die-hard fascination with the human brain was not all about altering it, but about using it to its fullest." Winona Ryder Timothy Leary inspired strong feelings in everyone he came into contact with during his momentous life. An unrelenting proponent of expanding consciousness and challenging authority, he was brilliant and erratic, extravagant and enthusiastic, wise and foolish. Ram Dass called him the most creative man he had ever known, while Richard Nixon called him the most dangerous man in the world. Many agree that his exuberant popularizing of psychedelics radically altered the course of the twentieth century. His research at Harvard University and subsequent dismissal from the faculty helped to inaugurate the counterculture of the 1960s, awakening a generation to its own potential. His later arrests, escapes from prison, asylum in Switzerland, and return to the United States mark him as an archetypal hero. His eventual embracing of computers and the Internet kept him at the forefront of the battle for personal freedom and creative expression. The essence of Leary's life has often been reduced to his celebrated formula "Turn on, tune in, and drop out." But the wider implications of this call to communion are forgotten, just as the complexnature of Leary's personality is often reduced to the superficial spin put on his ideas by the media. In Timothy Leary: Outside Looking In, many of the great artists, thinkers, and rebels of our time discuss Leary's life and legacy. In doing so, this gathering of minds goes beyond a simple tribute to the man and becomes a provocative dialogue on the evolution of consciousness. ROBERT FORTE studied the history and psychology of religion at the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and has taught at the University of California in Santa Cruz. He served on the board of directors of the Albert Hofmann Foundation and is the editor of Entheogens and the Future of Religion.
