  • The Sports Filmby Bruce Babington

    Columbia University Press 2014; US$ 19.99

    After covering the genre's early history and theorizing its general characteristics, this volume then focuses on specific instances of sports films, such as the biopic, the sports history film, the documentary, the fan film, the boxing film, and explores issues such as gender, race, spectacle and silent comedy. Four major films are then closely analysed... more...

  • Childhood, Youth, and Social Work in Transformationby Lynn M. Nybell; Jeffrey J. Shook; Janet L. Finn

    Columbia University Press 2008; US$ 69.99

    Social workers today not only face competing claims concerning the rights and needs of children and youth, but they also confront contradictions between policy and practice. Social workers are expected to fight for the best interests of the child, even though financial support for children's welfare and education grows scarce. They are asked to save... more...

  • East Asia at the Centerby Warren I. Cohen

    Columbia University Press 2001; US$ 29.99

    Cohen charts the course of cultural, intellectual, economic, and political developments in East Asia -- particularly China and Japan -- from the beginning of recorded time to the present day and examines such events as the rise and fall of key dynasties, the ascendance of the British empire, and the development of democracy in Asia. more...

  • Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattariby Francois Dosse; Deborah Glassman

    Columbia University Press 2010; US$ 29.99

    In May 1968, Gilles Deleuze was an established philosopher teaching at the innovative Vincennes University, just outside of Paris. Félix Guattari was a political militant and the director of an unusual psychiatric clinic at La Borde. Their meeting was quite unlikely, yet the two were introduced in an arranged encounter of epic consequence. From that... more...

  • Transgender 101by Nicholas M Teich

    Columbia University Press 2012; US$ 19.99

    Written by a social worker, popular educator, and transgender man, this well-rounded resource combines an accessible portrait of transgenderism with a rich history of transgender life and unique experiences of discrimination.

  • "How Come Boys Get to Keep Their Noses?"by Tahneer Oksman

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 29.99

    American comics reflect the distinct sensibilities and experiences of the Jewish American men who played an outsized role in creating them, but what about the contributions of Jewish women? Focusing on the visionary work of seven contemporary female Jewish cartoonists, Tahneer Oksman draws a remarkable connection between innovations in modes of graphic... more...

  • Adult Sibling Relationshipsby Geoffrey Greif; Michael Woolley

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 29.99

    The bond siblings develop in childhood may be vastly different from the relationship that evolves in adulthood. Driven by affection but also characterized by ambivalence and ambiguity, adult sibling relationships can become hurtful, uncertain, competitive, or exhausting though the undercurrents of love and loyalty remain. An approach that recognizes... more...

  • Calypso Jewsby Sarah Phillips Casteel

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 59.99

    With what may seem surprising frequency, Caribbean writers have turned to Jewish Caribbean experiences of exodus and reinvention, from the arrival of Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain and Portugal in the 1490s to the flight of European Jewish refugees to Trinidad and elsewhere in the 1930s. Examining this historical migration through the lens of... more...

  • Chaos Imaginedby Martin Meisel

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 44.99

    The stories we tell in our attempt to make sense of the world, our myths and religion, literature and philosophy, science and art, are the comforting vehicles we use to transmit ideas of order. But beneath the quest for order lies the uneasy dread of fundamental disorder. True chaos is hard to imagine and even harder to represent, especially without... more...

  • Chinese Law in Imperial Eyesby Li Chen

    Columbia University Press 2016; US$ 59.99

    Before the First Opium War (18391842), China had control over the terms of its relationship with Western powers, refusing to grant foreigners extraterritorial privileges or sign international treaties fully recognizing their political status. This dynamic has been largely overlooked in prior studies that emphasize China?s semicolonial vulnerability... more...
