  • Why Study Literature?by Stefan Iversen; Henrik Skov Nielsen; Jan Alber

    Aarhus University Press 2011; US$ 26.39

    The book presents new ways of thinking about the historical, epistemological and institutional role of literature. It aims at providing a theoretically well-founded basis for what might otherwise be considered a relatively unfounded historical fact, i.e. the fact that the teaching of literature holds a privileged position in many educational institutions.... more...

  • Smakkerup Huseby T. Douglas Price; Anne Birgitte Gebauer; Signe Ulfeldt Hede; Charlotte Sedlacek Larsen; Sarah Mason

    Aarhus University Press 2005; US$ 46.40

    Traditionally, the Mesolithic was regarded as a time of cultural regression in northern Europe but new evidence in the last 30 years has led archaeologists to think of the early postglacial foragers that lived in the Mesolithic as complex, sedentary coastal dwellers who lived in an era of innovation, interaction, and successful adaptation to a rapidly... more...

  • Letters from the Governor's Wifeby Annie Constance Christensen

    Aarhus University Press 2006; US$ 39.75

    When Johan Furuhjelm was offered the governorship of Russian America in 1858, the 37-year-old Finnish officer found himself in a quandary. He needed a wife to support him in the new post. Anna von Schoultz was chosen. The letters that she wrote from Siberia make up the present book and provide the reader with a fascinating portrait of private and public... more...

  • Drug Policyby Bagga Bjerge; Vibeke Asmussen; Esben Houborg

    Aarhus University Press 2008; US$ 49.95

    Drug policy has spread into new areas of society and new players are now engaged in this policy. This leads to the question: How can we understand and explain the increasingly complex puzzle that we call drug policy? A very wide range of drug policies are implemented in contemporary societies - not only by governments, but also by local communities,... more...

  • Warfare and Societyby Ton Otto; Henrik Thrane; Helle Vandkilde

    Aarhus University Press 2006; US$ 83.95

    This book deals with the interrelationship between society and war seen through the analytical eyes of anthropologists and archaeologists. War is a ghastly thing, which unfortunately thrives almost everywhere in the world today. We need, therefore, to have a better understanding of what war does to people and their societies. War produces change, and... more...

  • World Literature. World Cultureby Karen-Margrethe Simonsen; Jakob Stougaard-Nielsen

    Aarhus University Press 2008; US$ 58.95

    In a global age where people, goods and cultural products transcend the boundaries of geography and temporality as never before, it is only natural that literary and cultural studies turn their attention to Goethe's nineteenth-century notion of a Weltliteratur. Offering their own twenty-first-century perspectives - across generations, nationalities... more...

  • Taking Leave of Abrahamby Troels Nørager

    Aarhus University Press 2008; US$ 49.95

    Abraham's intention to sacrifice his son on God's command symbolises the violent potential of authoritarian religion. The contemporary resurgence of radically 'conservative' and 'fundamentalist' religion raises the question whether this kind of God-relation is compatible with a commitment to liberal democracy. In this timely... more...

  • Andre vinkler på ledelse og organisationby Flemming Agersnap; Dan Andersen; Per Blenker

    Aarhus University Press 2005; US$ 19.88

    Bogen afspejler professor Jens Genefkes mangesidige berøringsflader og hans mang­e­årige arbejde i brydningsfladen mellem virksomhedsledelsens teori og praksis. Bidragyderne har i flere tilfælde brugt mulig­heden for at fremlægge anderledes synsvinkler på udviklingen inden for ledelse og organi­sation. De 14 bidrag rækker således fra en generel kritik... more...

  • SFO og fritidshjem for de seks til niårige børnby Peter Allerup; Ole Robenhagen; Lotte S. Kaspersen

    Aarhus University Press 2003; US$ 10.63

    Mere end 200.000 børn i alderen mellem seks og ni år er daglig brugere af pædagogiske fritidstilbud som skolefritidsordningen (SFO) og fritidshjemmene. Alligevel har disse pædagogiske tilbud kun i mindre grad været underkastet forskningens søgelys. Det er anledningen til at der i 2001 iværksættes et forskningsprojekt, der skal belyse fritidsinstitutionerne... more...

  • K&K 111by Claus Esmann Andersen; Torsten Andreasen; Benjamin Boysen

    Aarhus University Press 2011; US$ 17.33

    K&K udkommer oftest i form af temanumre organiseret omkring bl.a. samtidskulturelle og politiske temaer. Herværende nummer er mindre stramt konceptualiseret, men karakteristisk for flere af artiklerne er den stadige bestræbelse på at lade de værkvendte og de verdensvendte tilgange befrugte hinanden i et dialogisk forhold, som peger mod nye måder at... more...
