Woman in Lars von Trier's Cinema, 1996-2014
26,72 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book discusses the figure of Woman in Lars von Trier's distinctive cinematic productions from 1996 to 2014. It takes the notorious legacy of violence against women in von Trier's cinema beyond the perceived gender division, elevating the director's image above being a mere provocateur. By raising fundamental questions about woman, sexuality, and desire, Elbeshlawy shows that Trier's cinematic Woman is an attempt at creating an image of a genderless subject that is not inhibited by the confines of ideology and culture. But this attempt is perennially ill-fated. And it is this failure that not only fosters viewing enjoyment but also gives the films their political importance, elevating them above both commendations and condemnations of feminist discourse.

An explosive biography of one of America's most notorious bands - Mötley Crüe.Mötley Crüe were formed in Los Angeles in 1981, and have since gone on to become one of America's biggest-selling and notorious heavy metal acts, with nine studio albums and over 80 million album sales. Acquiring huge success by the end of the 1980s with their mixture of heavy metal and glam rock, singer Vince Neil's 'glam' look even supposedly inspired the hit Aerosmith song 'Dude (Looks Like A Lady)'. In 1992 Neil left the band to pursue a solo career before returning in 1997. The band went into hiatus in 2000 before reuniting in 2004.In TATTOOS & TEQUILA, Vince Neil chronicles his personal experiences as singer and frontman for Mötley Crüe, and his time as a participant on reality shows. Mötley Crüe were a band who always lived up to the typical image of the 'rock and roll' lifestyle, and this is captured firsthand by Neil, who writes candidly about the band's struggles with drugs, alcohol and the law. These include incidents such as bass guitarist Nikki Sixx's near fatal heroin overdose in 1987. He also details his marriages to date, as well as movingly writing about the death of his daughter Skylar from cancer in 1995. The result is a compelling look at a band and a man who have seen many highs and lows in their career.A highly-anticipated film following the group's formidable ascent to the top of the '80s rock scene will be released in February 2018.

The Picture of Dorian Gray
8,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

"The Picture of Dorian Gray", Oscar Wilde's only novel, was first published on both sides of the Atlantic by the American periodical Lippincott's Monthly Review on 20th June 1890. Not only did this text provoke a heated debate in the British press in the same year, it also became notorious for its being quoted and examined in court in Wilde's three trials in the spring of 1895.As a story, the novel shows how a young man in a Faustian situation wishes for his portrait to age rather than himself. Steeped in sin, which, however, is alluded to rather than spelt out, Dorian Gray for Wilde s critics and enemies became an image of the author's own behaviour.Going back to the typescript of the novel, the editor has restored passages to the text that had been excised or censored by Wilde himself and the editorial committee in America. Danny Morrison has provided a preface placing Wilde in the Irish political context of his own day and beyond.

Shrimp farming in Bangladesh
60,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Despite the enormous potential of coastal shrimp aquaculture development in Bangladesh, this sector has been expanded in an unregulated and uncoordinated way that has led to a notorious image for it being ecologically, socially and economically destructive. From these perspectives, this study was conducted in order to assess the denudation of mangrove ecosystems mainly due to encroachment for shrimp farming. Together with this, aspects concerning the deterioration of the socio-economic condition of the rural communities in shrimp cultivated areas were also investigated. The results of the study clearly indicate that there was an uneven distribution of gains from shrimp culture between the powerful shrimp farmers and the poor people related to this sector. We conclude that it is vital for the future of the industry to improve such that shrimp farming can be developed as a sector that destroys the environment minimally and does not have negative socio-economic impacts.

X - Wild
29,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! X-Wild was a German heavy metal band founded in 1993 by three former bandmembers of Running Wild (thus the name X (Ex) Wild). The trio hired a British vocalist and put their first album out in 1994. X-Wild had the support of the majority of fans in Running Wild's fan club but gained an anti-image among diehard Running Wild worshippers becoming notorious as a ripoff band. Even though they used many of the song-writing clichés typical for Running Wild, X-Wild had many other influences and developed a style of their own. Vocalist Frank Knight was often compared to U.D.O.'s frontman Udo Dirkschneider and AC/DC's legendary singer Bon Scott. X-Wild disbanded in 1997 Rumours say it that one of the band's promoters disappeared with all band's money during the Savageland tour. This resulted in the decay of the band.

Transnational Organized Crimes and West African...

Nigerian method of fraud and corrupt practices demands a thorough investigation. This book not only assessed the historical background and indices that occasioned this infamous criminal tendency among Nigerians, but also the manner these crimes were committed, often with the active connivance of the policy-makers and law enforcement agencies. Moreover, the situation was exacerbated by the emergence of globalization and advanced information and communications technology, which helped to aid the criminals in escaping the long arm of the international community, which had to get involved as they were being hurt by the notorious Nigerian Scam'. This gave Nigeria a very bad image, and made her a pariah nation, inundated with sanctions and hostile policies, which impeded and retarded her developmental strides. This book is very important for scholars on African politics because the so-called Nigerian crime encompasses other neighbouring African countries. It is also needed by all those intent on understanding why the corruption in the Nigerian society seems hard to curb.
