Obama's Washington: Political Leadership in a Partisan Era

Obama's Washington: Political Leadership in a Partisan Era

Description

Edited by Clodagh Harrington. Published 2014. ISBN: 9781908857101 (paperback), 9781908857118 (ebook).

This volume contains a vibrant set of insightful essays which examine the array of challenges facing the Obama administration, and the president himself. Topics range from how best to manage a ruptured economy to controlling the budget, the green agenda, foreign policy and the recalibration of US relations with the UK, along with sections on presidential leadership, elections, healthcare and food poverty. The common theme throughout is the issue of governing in a fractured, fractious political environment, and the difficulties that accompany this. Contributing scholars are based at both US and UK academic institutions, and so a range of informed perspectives are offered throughout this engaging work. Packed with detail and yet highly accessible, this volume will appeal to those interested in American politics, history and the political process.

Recasting Commodity and Spectacle in the Indigenous Americas

Recasting Commodity and Spectacle in the Indigenous Americas

Description

Edited by Helen Gilbert and Charlotte Gleghorn. Published 2014. ISBN: 9781908857088 (paperback), 9781908857095 (ebook).

Indigenous artists frequently voice concerns over the commodification of their cultures, a process acutely felt by those living with the consequences of colonialism. This timely book, which features colour illustrations throughout, examines the ways in which contemporary indigenous peoples in different parts of the Americas have harnessed performance practices to resist imposed stereotypes and shape their own complex identities. Essays by leading academics and practitioners show the vibrancy of a wide array of indigenous arts and cultural events in the USA, Mexico, Peru, Bolivia, Canada, Nicaragua, Ecuador and Belize. As well as analysing performance idioms, the authors trace the circulation of creative products and practices as commodities, as cultural capital and/or as heritage. Making reference to aesthetic forms, intellectual property and political empowerment, these essays weigh the impact of music, festivities, film, photography, theatre and museum installations among diverse audiences and discuss ways in which spectacles of cultural difference are remodelled in the hands of indigenous practitioners.
