Greece's 'Odious' Debt

Jason Manolopoulos

Greece's 'Odious' Debt by Jason ManolopoulosJason Manolopoulos lends a unique perspective, based on experience of the global financial system, emerging markets and crises, European politics and Greek society, to demonstrate how one of the EU's smaller countries played a catalytic role in a crisis that threatens the future of the euro, and possibly even of the European Union itself.

Cinema at the Margins

Wheeler Dixon

Cinema at the Margins by Wheeler DixonMore and more, just a few canonical classics, such as Michael Curtiz's “Casablanca" (1942) or Victor Fleming's “Gone With The Wind" (1939), are representing the entire film output of an era, to a new generation that knows little of the past, and is encouraged by popular media to live only in the eternal present. What will happen to the rest of the films that enchanted, informed and transported audiences in the 1930s, 1940s, and even as recently as the 1960s? This collection of essays aims to highlight some of the lesser-known treasures of the past – those titles that have been pushed aside by...
