Grassroots Blogging Practice in America and China
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Revision with unchanged content. Blog is one of latest forms of online communication, and present academic studies are mainly on its role in education, politics and business. Few studies are available on grassroots bloggers, still less is the research on the comparison of blog contents in different cultures. This book reports some demographic studies on 60 American and 60 Chinese bloggers randomly collected from the immense blogosphere. Content analysis of posts shows that American and Chinese bloggers mainly document daily lives in their blogs, while serious topics such as sex, politics, and religion are not common. This suggests that the cultural variation may mot play a significant role in determining the contents of blogs, but rather that individual blogging practice is in some sense an international genre. The author also finds that there is a positive relationship between posts and comments, as well as blogrolls and comments. This book is addressed to researchers and students who are intrested in online communication.

Last Words From Montmartre
19,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

'I’d put  Last Words in a category that includes much of Kathy Acker and Henry Miller. Stein, too...It’s a deeply personal text. Yet it bears reading and rereading an abundance of times.'—Eileen Myles,  Bookforum 'Qiu’s voice, both colloquial and metaphysical, enchants.... It would be wrong to interpret the book’s—or, for that matter, the author’s—ultimate surrender to death as a rejection of the richness of life; rather, like Goethe’s young Werther, this 'last testament' (an alternative translation of the title) affirms the power of literature.' — Publishers Weekly “ Last Words from Montmartre is urgent, ecstatic, unbridled, and breathtakingly intimate. Qiu Miaojin is a writer who truly defies categorization, and this book, her last—part confession, part love letter, part fiction, part memoir, part suicide notes—is a thrilling testament to her original mind and impassioned heart.” —Sarah Shun-lien Bynum “ Last Words from Montmartre is deeply, soulfully moving in its excruciating revelation of the author’s innermost self, which is after all what makes the magic of literature. I felt a secret intimacy with Qiu Miaojin from the first page.” —Wang Dan   “Qiu Miaojin...had an exceptional talent. Her voice is assertive, intellectual, witty, lyrical, and intimate. Several years after her death, her works continue to command a huge following.” —Tze-lan Deborah Sang “A flawless translation.”—Josh Stenberg, World Literature Today   “What makes Kerouac or Salinger timeless is not necessarily literary, but perhaps didactic: the fact that there is wisdom to be found at the fountain of youth, no matter what time one arrives. Of course, there is also a saintliness reserved for those authors who are able to make an interesting life story for themselves, and that order includes Qiu Miaojin.” —Bonnie Huie, PEN America blog   “Qiu’s unique literary style mingl[es] cerebral, experimental language use, psychological realism, biting social critique through allegory, and a surrealist effect deriving from the use of arrestingly unusual metaphors.” —Fran Martin 'In  Last Words from Montmartre, selves and emotions hurtle through time and space with terrifying force — both destructive and productive — and ecstasy and pain exist in very close proximity.” — FullStop “ Last Words from Montmartre [is] intense, brutal and beautiful. A love letter and a suicide note.' — The Rumblr  “Few writers use the confession and aphorism as purely and effectively as Qiu, whose poetry offers a distinct type of clarity; Last Words from Montmartre achieves a profoundly intimate portrait of an individual whose life unravels before us.” —Jenn Mar, Rain Taxi  'Ari Larissa Heinrich’s translation is so skillful because he is able to understand Qiu as an artist, including all her tiny nuances, and her importance as an artistic figure…This is a novel of passion: the passion to love, to understand, to know, to express, to connect, to live and to die with reason...As readers, when a writer lays bare for us with such brutal honesty, truth will always be what we see…This isn’t a book of love letters or a book of suicide notes; its a testament to the power of artistic courage in the face of pain, misery and isolation.' —Monica Carter,  Three Percent  “Thanks to Heinrich's skill and judgment, Qiu’s passion is as overwhelming and relentless a force in translation as in the original. Qiu’s prose strikes the reader like a tsunami: waters of an unassuming height slowly but assuredly surge onto the land until they fill every room and take every object not nailed down. This is not simply passion, but what the Chinese call qing, which is passion as a full-blown aesthetic

The Criminal Cases Review Commission
130,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'Michael Naughton's timely and authoritative book comprehensively destroys the myth that the central mission of the CCRC is to correct wrongful convictions of the innocent.' Professor Mike McConville, The Chinese University of Hong Kong 'This is a timely and provocative volume, which draws attention to the limitations of Criminal Cases Review Commission and similar institutions. .. It ought to act as a useful antidote to any sense of complacency on the part of those responsible for rectifying such miscarriages.' - Professor Peter Duff, former member of the Scottish Criminal Cases Review Commission 'The CCRC is an extremely important experiment - a government institution dedicated to investigating miscarriages of justice - that jurists all across the world are following with profound interest. Michael Naughton's thorough and insightful book raises critical issues the CCRC must address, especially the apparent tendency to elevate concerns about procedure above the CCRC's core mission to find a best approximation of the truth and fairness in an individual's case.' - Barry Scheck, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Innocence Project, USA 'The Criminal Cases Review Commission: Hope for the Innocent? is a must read for any person with a serious interest in understanding what approaches may and may not work to help with overturning the conviction of innocent persons.' - Hans Sherrer, Justice Denied blog 'The book presents a strong and passionate prosecution case against the CCRC.' - Duncan Campbell, The Guardian 'The book may completely change the reader's perception of the CCRC via a thorough exploration of the entire organisation, its history, objectives and apparent failings. [...] Overall, the book provides a significant insight into the work of the CCRC.' - The Howard Journal
