In 1968, the Republican Convention was a display of congeniality and unity, despite the various factions each supporting a separate candidate. Choosing Spiro Agnew as his running mate, Richard Nixon won the nomination on the first ballot, with Ronald Reagan moving to make it unanimous. Conservatives such as Barry Goldwater and Strom Thurmond immediately joined in the support. From that moment, the results of Nixon´s work since the 1962 defeat took effect, and he demonstrated himself to be a far more thoughtful and careful candidate than in the past. The image of a ´´New Nixon´´ emerged, ´´more statesmanlike, less combative, more mature and presidential´´. The Democrats, on the other hand, were in terrible disarray. The Vietnam War raged with no honorable end in sight, President Kennedy had been assassinated several years before, and public unrest at home grew by the day. Even still, when Senator Eugene McCarthy decided to throw his hat into the ring in 1968, it was a surprise, but it was an even greater one when he was only narrowly defeated in the first primary in New Hampshire on March 12th. Though President Lyndon B. Johnson had won the primary, the close margin made him appear vulnerable, an unusual position for a sitting president, and after McCarthy´s close shave in New Hampshire, Senator Bobby Kennedy judged the time was right to enter the race. ungekürzt.

This book is the first critical anthology to examine the controversial history of the zoo by focusing on its close relationship with screen media histories and technologies. Individual chapters address the representation of zoological spaces in classical and contemporary Hollywood cinema, documentary and animation, amateur and avant-garde film, popular television and online media. The Zoo and Screen Media: Images of Exhibition and Encounter provides a new map of twentieth-century human-animal relations by exploring how the zoo, that modern apparatus for presenting living animals to human audiences, has itself been represented across a diverse range of moving image media.

Karen Lury is Professor of Film and Television Studies at the University of Glasgow, UK and the author of The Child in Film: Tears, Fears and Fairytales .

Seminar paper from the year 2013 in the subject German Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 1.3, University of Flensburg, language: English, abstract: Throughout the history both the Eastern and the Western parts of the world had a certain image of each other as of the opposites. The world division into us and them had certainly brought a number of stereotypes and prejudices. With the development of tourism, the humanity has got more opportunities to travel around the world and to discover foreign cultures. However, travelling did not eliminate all the stereotypes filling human minds. Platform, the second novel of controversial French author Michel Houellebecq, reveals some clichés and prejudices of modern society. This work aims to analyse stereotyped images of the West and the East civilisations described in the novel, and to investigate the reason of their usage, as well as the impact they make on the prejudiced characters. In order to make the analysis more effective, the essay will cover the most prominent stereotypes based on the nation, gender, sexuality, and religion. In order to elaborate a clear line of analysis of the novel, which is a vivid example of postmodern literature, the essay arguments are based on the works of postmodern critical theorists writing on the Western and the Eastern civilisations (such as Jacques Derrida, Noam Chomsky, Michel Foucault, Edward Said, Homi K. Bhabha, etc.). To make the analysis more comprehensive the essay includes the researches of psychiatrist, psychologists, psychoanalysis theorists and sociologists, as well as political scientists and communication theorists (Samuel P. Huntington, Walter Lippmann, Anthony Giddens, Gordon Allport, Sigmund Freud, Slavoj ?i?ek, William Cox, Patricia Devine, etc.).
From the author of Multiple Exposure, an ´´assured tale of love, loss, and secret agendas´´ (Publishers Weekly), comes the second novel in the thrilling Sophie Medina series, following a photojournalist as she races to find an international treasure before a murderer finds her. When freelance photojournalist Sophie Medina finds Brother Kevin Boyle, a Franciscan friar and controversial environmentalist, dead in the magnificent gardens of a Washington, DC, monastery, she is sure her friend was murdered. Shortly before he died, Kevin told Sophie he was being stalked, possibly because he uncovered a botanic discovery potentially worth millions of dollars. Left with few clues to his secret, Sophie is determined to figure out who killed him. Beginning with a key that leads to a priceless original 17th-century encyclopedia of plants, Sophie leaps into an international treasure hunt, following a trail that begins in the US Capitol and eventually leads to London and the English countryside. Before long Sophie suspects Kevin´s murderer may have been someone who knew him well. With time running out and a suspect list that includes the world´s leading botanical experts and political royalty from both sides of the Atlantic, can Sophie solve the 200-year-old mystery before Kevin´s killer finds her? A tale of greed and betrayal involving politicians, diplomats, European royalty, and a century-old monastery, Ghost Image is filled with political intrigue, history, and an international high-stakes race against a killer that will keep you guessing until the very last minute. ungekürzt.
