Muriel

by Valentina Morea Mois Benarroch

Un attentato a Gerusalemme. Un cambio di identità. Chi si è salvato e chi è morto? Dopo un attentato il narratore perde i sensi e si mette in un auto non sua e viaggia a tutta velocità lungo la strada del mar morto. Ha un incidente e viene confuso con il proprietario della Fiat Punto che muore nell' attentato. Passa molti mesi in coma, ma quando si sveglia si rende conto di trovarsi in un'altra vita, un'altra vita forse sognata, o cheforse sta sognando in questi momenti. All'improvviso si vede liberato da una relazione che non poteva più sopportare e entra nel gioco dell'essere qualcun altro. Sembra che tutti sappiano che lui non è lui, ma nessuno fa passi indietro. Torna a spiare la sua vecchia vita, per scoprire che tutto va meglio senza di lui. Il romanzo Muriel è una sfida a quello che pensiamo essere il nostro intimo io, alla crisi dell'individualità, alle bugie del mondo moderno.

Raquel Dice (qualcosa di interamente inaspettato)

by Valentina Sciortino Mois Benarroch

Raquel Dice (qualcosa di interamente inaspettato). C'é qualcuno dietro di noi che ci dice che da qualche parte esiste un'altra persona nel mondo che vive una vita parallela alla nostra, che sente le stesse cose, che forse sta facendo le stesse cose in questo momento. Cosa accade, però, quando due linee parallele si incontrano? Succede l'impossibile e ciò che non dovrebbe accadere. Se l'anima gemella esiste e se abbiamo voglia di incontrarla, questo non vuol dire che l'incontro ci facilita la vita o ci dà soluzioni.

Technology in Physical Activity and Health Promotion (Routledge Research in Physical Activity and Health)

by Zan Gao

As technology becomes an ever more prevalent part of everyday life and population-based physical activity programmes seek new ways to increase lifelong engagement with physical activity, so the two have become increasingly linked. This book offers a thorough, critical examination of emerging technologies in physical activity and health, considering technological interventions within the dominant theoretical frameworks, exploring the challenges of integrating technology into physical activity promotion and offering solutions for its implementation. Technology in Physical Activity and Health Promotion occupies a broadly positive stance toward interactive technology initiatives and, while discussing some negative implications of an increased use of technology, offers practical recommendations for promoting physical activity through a range of media, including: social media mobile apps global positioning and geographic information systems wearables active videogames (exergaming) virtual reality settings. Offering a logical and clear critique of technology in physical activity and health promotion, this book will serve as an essential reference for upper-level undergraduates, postgraduate students and scholars working in public health, physical activity and health and kinesiology, and healthcare professionals.

Role Theory and Role Conflict in U.S.-Iran Relations: Enemies of Our Own Making (Role Theory and International Relations)

by Stephen G. Walker Akan Malici

U.S.-Iran relations continue to be an international security problem in the Middle East. These two countries could have been friends, but instead they have become enemies. Stating this thesis raises the following questions: Why are the United States and Iran enemies? How and when did this relationship come to be? When the relationship began to deteriorate, could it have been reversed? What lessons can be learned from an analysis of past U.S.-Iranian relations and what are the implications for their present and future relations? Akan Malici and Stephen G. Walker argue that the dynamics of U.S.-Iran relations are based on role conflicts. Iran has long desired to enact roles of active independence and national sovereignty in world politics. However, it continued to be cast by others into client or rebel roles of national inferiority. In this book the authors examine these role conflicts during three crucial episodes in U.S.-Iran relations: the oil nationalization crisis and the ensuing clandestine coup aided by the CIA to overthrow the Iranian regime in 1950 to 1953; the Iranian revolution followed by the hostage crisis in 1979 to 1981; the reformist years pre- and post- 9/11 under Mohammad Khatami from 1997 to 2002. Their application of role theory is theoretically and methodologically progressive and innovative in illuminating aspects of U.S.-Iran relations. It allows for a better understanding of the past, navigating the present, and anticipating the future in order to avoid foreign policy mistakes. Role Theory and Role Conflict in U.S.-Iran Relations is a useful resource for international relations and foreign policy scholars who want to learn more about progress in international relations theory and U.S. relations with Iran.

Performing Arts Center Management (Routledge Research in Creative and Cultural Industries Management)

by Robyn Williams Patricia Dewey Lambert

Performing arts centers (PACs) are an integral part of the cultural and creative industries, significantly influencing the cultural, social, and economic vitality of communities around the world. Virtually all PACs are community-based and serve the public interest, whether structured as a public, nonprofit, for-profit, or hybrid entity. However, there is a lack of knowledge about the important community role of performing arts centers, especially those that mainly host and present work produced by other arts organizations. This gap is startling, given the ubiquitous presence of PACs in urban centers, small communities, as well as colleges and universities. This co-edited reference book provides valuable information at the intersection of theory and practice in the professional field of executive leadership of performing arts centers. Drawing on the expertise of leading academics, consultants, and executives, this book focuses on institutions and practices in the United States, and is contextualized within additional fields such as cultural planning, urban revitalization, and economic development. Performing Arts Center Management aims to provide valuable theoretical, conceptual, empirical, and practice-based information to current and future leaders in creative and cultural industries management. It serves as a unique reference for researchers, university students, civic leaders, urban planners, public venue managers, and arts administrators aspiring to improve or advance their work in successfully managing performing arts centers.

Il Premio Nobel

by Mois Benarroch Silvia Gallico

Uno scrittore famoso e molto controverso scopre che un vecchio amico, che in gioventù apparteneva al suo stesso gruppo di scrittori della città di Irxal, è ricoverato in un ospedale psichiatrico. La sua malattia è bizzarra e sconosciuta ai dottori: ogni giorno assume le vesti di un personaggio dei libri che ha scritto. Queste trasformazioni diventano un'ossessione per il protagonista che ogni giorno si reca in visita all'amico a cui, in un finale sorprendente, verrà conferito il Premio Nobel. "La scrittura e la follia non sono mai troppo lontani, e alcuni fra i più grandi scrittori sono stati personaggi dal carattere difficile che agivano secondo una logica non troppo lineare." Javier Perez. Con questo libro, Mois Benarroch ci costringe ad immedesimarci con senso dell'umorismo, ironia e satira nei vaneggiamenti di uno scrittore che si è fatto ricoverare in un ospedale psichiatrico e di uno dei suoi amici, che tenta di decifrarne la follia. Il libro affronta anche i temi del desiderio di voler scrivere senza dover soddisfare i gusti del pubblico o le richieste delle case editrici e la gelosia fra scrittori che si mentono l'un l'altro sulle pubblicazioni, sui contratti e il numero di copie vendute. Benarroch si diverte raccontandoci storie di pazienti molto originali, alieni che vogliono fare sesso, mogli che credono che la letteratura non sia una professione ma un pretesto per sfuggire alla realtà, e vari personaggi, alcuni reali, alcuni fittizi, che recitano il loro ruolo e spariscono al momento opportuno. Il libro è una piacevole lettura ma è anche una denuncia, mascherata da un'ironia mordace, di una verità troppo dura per essere svelata in maniera diretta. Con questo libro, il poeta israeliano pluripremiato, ci presenta il suo primo romanzo in inglese. Le sue opere poetiche sono state pubblicate in varie antologie ma il grande pubblico deve ancora scoprire i suoi romanzi, alcuni dei quali

Coplas del inmigrante

by Mois Benarroch Laura Irene González Mendoza

En este poemario, Mois Benarroch hace un retrato muy personal de la migración y del arte de vivir entre dos mundos sin pertenecer a ninguno. Incluye su poema más celebrado, que es el que da nombre a este libro. El té nunca llegó ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Los aviones volaron sobre nosotros los trenes dejaron la estación pero el té nunca llegó. Nos bebimos el agua nos bebimos el jugo pero el té nunca llegó. Esperamos hasta que olvidamos qué estábamos esperando pero el té nunca llegó. Escuchamos bombas afuera algunos dijeron que era una guerra, otros que sólo un robo pero el té nunca llegó. Algunos nos hicimos viejos, muy viejos nuestros dientes se salieron, nuestra barba encaneció pero el té nunca llegó. Y sin embargo nunca nadie preguntó por el té nadie en realidad recordó qué estábamos esperando, y eso no ayudó el té nunca llegó.

Cachecol Blues

by Getúlio Maia Mois Benarroch

Um escritor judeu-espanhol chega a Madri para um encotnro de hispano-judeus, logo depois da norte do melhor amigo e da irmã. Em Sevilha, acha um cachecol, que permanece em seu pescoço por 13 dias e, assim como chega, some e se perde em Madri. O cachecol se transforma em uma obsessiva reflexão sobre a perda e a despedida das coisas e das pessoas. O escritor se despede dos mortos, mas também de todas as pessoas de quem não pode se despedir e que nunca poderá. Depede-se dos sonhos. Enquanto isso, vêm a seu encontro judeus-espanhóis que ficaram perdidos por 150 na Amazônia, sobre os quais tinha escrito dez anos antes em um de seus romances. Terá inventado essa realidade? A realidade é fruto do que imaginamos? O romance viaja por vários países, Marrocos, Brasil, Nova York, Israel. E línguas: hebraico, francês, espanhol, português e, principalmente, o jaquetía, o judeu-espanhol do norte do Marrocos, que persevera em continuar uma morta-viva de uma cultura que não existe mais, de palavras e expressões que deixam para trás um mundo perdeu.Um escritor judeu-espanhol chega a Madri para um encotnro de hispano-judeus, logo depois da norte do melhor amigo e da irmã.

Às Portas de Tânger

by Catia A. G. Fernandes Mois Benarroch

Quando o pai dos Benzimra morre, deixa um testamento no qual anuncia à sua família a existência de um filho ilegítimo, fruto de uma relação com uma mulher muçulmana em Marrocos. Para receber a herança, a sua família deve fazer todos os possíveis para o encontrar. Empreendem então uma viagem até Tetuão, passando por lugares como Jerusalém, Madrid, Nova Iorque e Paris, à procura desse irmão perdido; uma viagem que os irá confrontar com as suas origens marroquinas, com o seu judaísmo, que os levará a questionarem-se sobre a sua identidade; uma experiência d qual não regressarão os mesmos. Uma obra que põe a descoberto como vive a sociedade israelita em pleno conflito entre sefarditas e ashkenazim, os laços e as tensões entre o mundo árabe e a Europa, entre a cultura do Médio Oriente e a cultura ocidental. Um mundo cheio de complexidades e refinamentos que são frequentemente distorcidos na versão apresentada pelos meios de comunicação. Uma história sobre um mundo pouco conhecido, o dos judeus do norte de Marrocos, repleta de intrigas, pontilhada por rasgos de humor e erotismo, que leva até ao incesto, mas deixando sempre a possibilidade de regresso a casa.

Media Relations of the Anti-War Movement: The Battle for Hearts and Minds (Routledge Studies in Global Information, Politics and Society)

by Ian Taylor

In this book, Ian Taylor examines how a social movement, the anti-Iraq War movement in the UK, engaged with the media as a part of their campaigning against the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Moving beyond content analysis to draw upon interviews with locally based journalists and activists, Taylor examines how locally based anti-war groups engaged with their local press, as well as how those groups were reported on by the local press in their respective areas. In the process of exploring these ideas, the book takes on questions like: How did local journalists assess the legitimacy of the anti-war movement? How, why, and to what extent did opponents of the war pursue local press coverage? What bearing did the social composition of the movement have on the way they set about engaging with the media? How did the local press handle the controversy surrounding opposition to military action against Iraq? Media Relations of the Anti-War Movement makes a unique contribution to research on the interactions between social movements and the media and plugs a major gap in the literature on the Iraq War and the media.

American Missionaries, Korean Protestants, and the Changing Shape of World Christianity, 1884-1965 (Perspectives on Modern America)

by William Yoo

This book examines the partnerships and power struggles between American missionaries and Korean Protestant leaders in both nations from the late 19th century to the aftermath of the Korean War. Yoo analyzes American and Korean sources, including a plethora of unpublished archival materials, to uncover the complicated histories of cooperation and contestation behind the evolving relationships between Americans and Koreans at the same time the majority of the world Christian population shifted from the Global North to the Global South. American and Korean Protestants cultivated deep bonds with one another, but they also clashed over essential matters of ecclesial authority, cultural difference, geopolitics, and women’s leadership. This multifaceted approach – incorporating the perspectives of missionaries, migrants, ministers, diplomats, and interracial couples – casts new light on American and Korean Christianities and captures American and Korean Protestants mutually engaged in a global movement that helped give birth to new Christian traditions in Korea, created new transnational religious and humanitarian partnerships such as the World Vision organization, and transformed global Christian traditions ranging from Pentecostalism to Presbyterianism.

Primed for Success: How Chemical Engineers Created the Petrochemical Industry

by Peter H. Spitz

This is the remarkable story of an entrepreneurial firm that helped to create the petrochemical industry as we know it today. The author also highlights the important role chemical engineers played in developing and commercializing new technologies based on the conversion of hydrocarbons into petrochemicals, which also led to the transfer of technological dominance from Germany to the United States. These developments are illustrated by the participants’ personal histories, in the form of interviews and recorded oral histories. In addition, the book presents a highly relevant case study for engineers and managers in the chemical industry.

Raquel Says (Something Entirely Unexpected)

by Sally Seward Mois Benarroch

There is someone behind us telling us that somewhere there exists another person in the world living a life parallel to ours; someone who feels the same things and is perhaps doing the same thing at this very moment. But what happens when two parallell lines intersect? The impossible happens, and what should not happen, happens. If soulmates do exist, and if we have the desire to find them, that doesn't mean that the meeting will make our lives easier or give us solutions. The narrator of this novel reveals to us his encounter with Raquel, his soulmate. With him we discover how two people are born in the same city, almost on the same day, marry similar people, give their children the same names, and write very similar books, without ever having seen each other or met until they reach the age of forty. An existential cataclysm, this experience only serves to move these two characters further into exile. Raquel Says (Something Entirely Unexpected) is a journey to the limits of logic. "Do you remember the poor man wearing a djellaba who would beg for money next to the school?" "The one on the corner." "Two corners and the school in the middle, the black metal door." "I remember that you would run to give him a coin before they closed the door, always arriving to class last." "I wanted to sleep a little more, you were always in my dreams." "He would dance." "Do you remember the rulers they used to hit our hands?" "And they would say 'met la main' ('put out your hand'), but then your hand would automatically move back when the ruler came close." "And once again, 'met la main', as if it were normal for a child to like being hit." "And we still have good memories from that school." "Who are we?" "We are the people from the memory." "The past is that story that never stops changing."

Local Government, Local Legislation: Municipal Initiative in Parliament from 1858–1872

by R.J.B. Morris

In the mid-Victorian period, when British international influence and power were at their height, concerns about local economic and social conditions were only slowly coming to be recognised as part of the obligations and expectations of central government. Adopting a legal history perspective, this study reveals how municipal authorities of this period had few public law powers to regulate local conditions, or to provide services, and thus the more enterprising went direct to Parliament to obtain – at a price – the passing specific local Bills to address their needs. Identifying and analysing for the first time the 335 local Parliamentary Bills promoted by local authorities in the period from the passing of the Local Government Act 1858 to the first annual report of the Local Government Board in 1872, the book draws three main conclusions from this huge mass of local statute book material. The first is that, far from being an uncoordinated mass of inconsistent, quixotic provisions, these Acts have a substantial degree of cohesion as a body of material. Second, the towns and cities of northern England secured more than half of them. Thirdly, the costs of promotions (and the vested interests involved in them) represented a huge and often wasteful outlay that a more pragmatic and forward-looking Parliamentary attitude could have greatly reduced.

Using Characters and Themes to Inspire Early Learning: A Practical Guide

by Louise Robson Jo Ayers

Offering an approach that is tried, tested and proven to work, this book supports practitioners in planning and resourcing a series of topics based around popular themes and interests in the early years. Each topic is open-ended and introduced in the form of a problem that the children have to solve and can be led by their knowledge, thoughts and ideas. Using Characters and Themes to Inspire Early Learning aims to nurture children’s natural curiosity and imagination, encouraging them to become the facilitators who are empowered to solve problems, explore solutions and take ownership of their learning. There are links throughout to the seven areas of learning in the EYFS and practical guidance on how to document the children’s learning. Features include: An exciting range of characters, themes and objects to inspire children. Photocopiable pages and online resources to use in the classroom. Session breakdowns to set the scene and make planning easy. Creative ideas and activities to prompt children’s thinking and develop discussions. Packed with ideas for extending learning and practical resources that can be printed out for use in the classroom, this book is essential reading for all students and practitioners who want to provide inspiring learning opportunities for the children in their care.

Nuclear Asymmetry and Deterrence: Theory, Policy and History (Routledge Global Security Studies)

by Jan Ludvik

This book offers a broader theory of nuclear deterrence and examines the way nuclear and conventional deterrence interact with non-military factors in a series of historical case studies. The existing body of literature largely leans toward the analytical primacy of nuclear deterrence and it is often implicitly assumed that nuclear weapons are so important that, when they are present, other factors need not be studied. This book addresses this omission. It develops a research framework that incorporates the military aspects of deterrence, both nuclear and conventional, together with various perceptual factors, international circumstances, domestic politics, and norms. This framework is then used to re-examine five historical crises that brought two nuclear countries to the brink of war: the hostile asymmetric nuclear relations between the United States and China in the early 1960s; between the Soviet Union and China in the late 1960s; between Israel and Iraq in 1977–1981; between the United States and North Korea in 1992–1994; and, finally, between the United States and the Soviet Union during the 1962 Cuban missile crisis. The main empirical findings challenge the common expectation that the threat of nuclear retaliation represents the ultimate deterrent. In fact, it can be said, with a high degree of confidence, that it was rather the threat of conventional retaliation that acted as a major stabilizer. This book will be of much interest to students of nuclear proliferation, cold war studies, deterrence theory, security studies and IR in general.

Indonesia and the Politics of Disaster: Power and Representation in Indonesia’s Mud Volcano (Routledge Contemporary Southeast Asia Series)

by Phillip Drake

Named after Lapindo Brantas, a gas exploration company that was drilling at the eruption site, the Lapindo mudflow initially burst in 2006 and continues to flow today, becoming the most expensive disaster in Indonesia’s history. Using this environmental incident in Indonesia as a case study, this book explores representations of disaster in scientific reports, public discourse, literature, and other cultural forms, observing the impact of these portrayals on the ways people both understand and respond to complicated environmental disasters. The author argues that power is expressed and contested in every representation of a disaster and its stakeholders. This book develops terminologies and perspectives that not only probe the social and ecological conditions that make disaster possible but also foster more effective and equitable strategies for adapting to a world fraught with hazards. Interdisciplinary in nature, this book makes a significant contribution to the fields of green cultural studies, disaster studies, science and technology studies and studies of political ecology in Southeast Asia.

Partial Differential Equations I: Basic Theory (Applied Mathematical Sciences #115)

by Michael E. Taylor

The first of three volumes on partial differential equations, this one introduces basic examples arising in continuum mechanics, electromagnetism, complex analysis and other areas, and develops a number of tools for their solution, in particular Fourier analysis, distribution theory, and Sobolev spaces. These tools are then applied to the treatment of basic problems in linear PDE, including the Laplace equation, heat equation, and wave equation, as well as more general elliptic, parabolic, and hyperbolic equations.The book is targeted at graduate students in mathematics and at professional mathematicians with an interest in partial differential equations, mathematical physics, differential geometry, harmonic analysis, and complex analysis.

Partial Differential Equations II: Qualitative Studies of Linear Equations (Applied Mathematical Sciences #116)

by Michael E. Taylor

This second in the series of three volumes builds upon the basic theory of linear PDE given in volume 1, and pursues more advanced topics. Analytical tools introduced here include pseudodifferential operators, the functional analysis of self-adjoint operators, and Wiener measure. The book also develops basic differential geometrical concepts, centred about curvature. Topics covered include spectral theory of elliptic differential operators, the theory of scattering of waves by obstacles, index theory for Dirac operators, and Brownian motion and diffusion.

Partial Differential Equations III: Nonlinear Equations (Applied Mathematical Sciences #117)

by Michael E. Taylor

The third of three volumes on partial differential equations, this is devoted to nonlinear PDE. It treats a number of equations of classical continuum mechanics, including relativistic versions, as well as various equations arising in differential geometry, such as in the study of minimal surfaces, isometric imbedding, conformal deformation, harmonic maps, and prescribed Gauss curvature. In addition, some nonlinear diffusion problems are studied. It also introduces such analytical tools as the theory of L Sobolev spaces, H lder spaces, Hardy spaces, and Morrey spaces, and also a development of Calderon-Zygmund theory and paradifferential operator calculus. The book is aimed at graduate students in mathematics, and at professional mathematicians with an interest in partial differential equations, mathematical physics, differential geometry, harmonic analysis and complex analysis
