  • Hybrid Culturesby Néstor García Canclini; Christopher L. Chiappari; Silvia L. López

    University of Minnesota Press 1995; US$ 60.00

    Traditions not quite past and modernity not yet wholly present make a curious hybrid of Latin American culture.

In particular, Néstor García Canclini questions whether Latin America can move toward democracy... more...

  • The Child in the World/The World in the Childby Marianne N. Bloch; Devorah Kennedy; Theodora Lightfoot; Dar Weyenberg

    Palgrave Macmillan 2006; US$ 37.00

    The contributors look at universalizing discourses concerning young children across the globe, which purport to describe everyone in a scientific and neutral way, but actually create mechanisms through which children are divided and excluded.

  • MSC Maximal Stress Cooperationby Heiner Mühlmann

    Springer Vienna 2006; US$ 29.95

    ABC-CLIO 2007; US$ 204.00

    "From pre-school to high school and beyond, Girl Culture tackles numerous hot-button issues, including the recent barrage of advertising geared toward very young girls emphasizing sexuality and extreme thinness.

  • The New Rich in Chinaby David Goodman

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 48.95

    Three decades of reform since 1978 in the People?s Republic of China have resulted in the emergence of new social groups which have included new occupations and professions generated as the economy has opened up and developed and, most spectacularly given the legacy of state socialism, the identification of those who are regarded as wealthy. However,... more...
