The Utopian Vision
Jessica Gildersleeve

This first in-depth study of his entire corpus provides an understanding of Tsiolkas’s position in relation to Modernism, thereby drawing out his points about character, setting and politics, thereby helping us to think about what place his ideas about the individual and the community might have in our reading of contemporary Australia and contemporary world literature.

Quest for Historicity and Transcendent Truth
Zhansui Yu

Zhang Yimou:

Globalization and the Subject of Culture
Wendy Larson
ISBN: 9781604979756

“This is a splendid study of Zhang Yimou. One of the pioneers of Chinese cultural studies, Wendy Larson reveals to us here in a series of theoretically sophisticated and cogently argued readings the entanglement of culture, power, and history in the director’s major works—from Red Sorghum to the 2008 Olympic opening ceremony . By focusing on Zhang’s visual representation, the book offers in effect a deeply engaging reflection of the ambivalent role of post-Mao Chinese culture in a rapidly globalizing world. This exquisite book is a must-read for anyone interested in Chinese cinema and culture.” —Fu Poshek, University of Illinois Read More..

“This may be the best book ever written on tourism in Japan! This work is one of the most important subjects in contemporary tourism studies and Japan studies, perhaps a forerunner of things that are also happening in the Korean and Chinese worlds and elsewhere, which makes it doubly important. This book is comprehensive in many ways." —Nelson Graburn, University of California, Berkeley Read More..
