Gender, Migration and Domestic Service: The Politics of Black Women in Italy

Jacqueline Andall

Gender, Migration and Domestic Service: The Politics of Black Women in Italy by Jacqueline AndallThe book examines the experiences of Black women in Italy from the 1970s to the 1990s. Although Italy is still perceived as a recent immigration country, the book demonstrates how Black women were among the first groups of new? migrants to the country. Black women migrating to Italy were employed almost exclusively as live-in domestic workers and detailed attention is paid to the history and political organization of this sector. Unlike much published work in Italian, this book adopts an integrated form of analysis where gender, ethnicity and class are seen to be interconnected constructs. The...

Networks, Trust and Social Capital: Theoretical and Empirical Investigations from Europe

Sokratis M. Koniordos

Networks, Trust and Social Capital: Theoretical and Empirical Investigations from Europe by Sokratis M. KoniordosThe concepts of social networks, social capital and trust play an increasingly central role in the social sciences. They have become indispensable conceptual tools for the analysis of post-industrial/late-modern societies, which are characterized by such features as the relative decline of formal hierarchies, the development of flexible social arrangements in the sphere of production and the extreme mobility of capital. This is the first book to study the interrelationships between these important concepts both theoretically and empirically. Drawing on empirical investigations from a range of...

Citizenship in European Cities: Immigrants, Local Politics and Integration Policies

Karen Kraal & Steven Vertovec

Citizenship in European Cities: Immigrants, Local Politics and Integration Policies by Karen Kraal & Steven VertovecThere are relatively few books that provide comparative analysis of European cities in relation to immigrants and political participation. This fresh and insightful volume, from the same team that published Multicultural Policies and Modes of Citizenship in European Cities in 2001, analyzes how the presence of immigrants is perceived in politics, how this affects their status and how far minorities are able to (politically) participate in European cities. The comparative studies address the influence of (minority) politics, as well as that of migrant mediators and ethnic organizations on the...

Ancient Egyptian Furniture Volume III

Geoffrey Killen

Ancient Egyptian Furniture Volume III by Geoffrey KillenIn this third volume Dr Killen investigates how woodworking in ancient Egypt developed in the 19th and 20th dynasties. It establishes the range of wooden furniture manufactured during this period by surveying examples depicted in Ramesside Theban and Memphite tombs. Ancient records show how the procurement of furniture occurred at Deir el-Medina while the design and manufacturing of these furniture forms can be traced through a series of furniture sketches that are annotated with a range of marks and signs. These designs are seen in surviving examples of furniture from settlements such as Medinet...

Food in the Migrant Experience

Anne J. Kershen

Food in the Migrant Experience by Anne J. KershenAt its most basic, food is vital to our survival there can be no form of life without it. But in economically developed and thriving societies there is more to eating and drinking than just surviving. As the centuries have passed, the marketing, preparation and presentation of food has become an intrinsic part of the modern consumer society. Food operates in the religious sphere too, with consumption and abstinence playing their part in religious ritual whilst methods of animal slaughter have moved into the political, as well as the religious arena. Food not only sustains the migrant on both...

Family Change and Housing in Post-War Japanese Society: The Experiences of Older Women

Misa Izuhara

Family Change and Housing in Post-War Japanese Society: The Experiences of Older Women by Misa IzuharaThis book explores the experiences of older women in post-war Japanese society through analysis of their family and housing histories. Three broad themes - family relations, welfare systems and housing - were chosen to highlight issues surrounding the changing role and position of women in the family and society. A qualitative approach is used to address a gap in the literature and to illustrate the real-life experiences of women in Japan. Many aspects of the book are comparable, or related, to studies exploring other industrial and East Asian societies and the book thus contributes to international...

Southern Resistance in Critical Perspective: The Politics of Protest in South Africa's Contentious Democracy

Marcel Paret

Southern Resistance in Critical Perspective: The Politics of Protest in South Africa's Contentious Democracy by Marcel Paret

From the Arab Uprising, to anti-austerity protests in Europe and the US Occupy Movement, to uprisings in Brazil and Turkey, resistance from below is flourishing. Whereas analysts have tended to look North in their analysis of the recent global protest wave, this volume develops a Southern perspective through a deep engagement with the case of South Africa, which has experienced widespread popular resistance for more than a decade. Combining critical theoretical perspectives with extensive qualitative fieldwork and rich case studies, Southern Resistance in Critical Perspective situates South...

Critical Toponymies: The Contested Politics of Place Naming

Jani Vuolteenaho

Critical Toponymies: The Contested Politics of Place Naming by Jani VuolteenahoWhile place names have long been studied by a few devoted specialists, approaches to them have been traditionally empiricist and uncritical in character. This book brings together recent works that conceptualize the hegemonic and contested practices of geographical naming. The contributors guide the reader into struggles over toponymy in a multitude of national and local contexts across Europe, North America, New Zealand, Asia and Africa. In a ground-breaking and multidisciplinary fashion, this volume illuminates the key role of naming in the colonial silencing of indigenous cultures, canonization...

Challenged Borderlands: Transcending Political and Cultural Boundaries

Vera Pavlakovich-Kochi & Barbara J. Morehouse

Challenged Borderlands: Transcending Political and Cultural Boundaries by Vera Pavlakovich-Kochi & Barbara J. MorehouseIn the early 1990s, borders within Europe and between the United States and Mexico began to open. The increasing flow of goods, capital, ideas and people across boundaries promised to reduce physical and cognitive distances. Simultaneously, challenges to identity have arisen within and between the European nation-states, driven not only by internal cultural and political dynamics, but also by processes of globalization. Concurrently, the US-Mexican border emerged in public consciousness as a location of new opportunities, largely due to public perception of the benefits of the North American...

Granville Sharp's Cases on Slavery

Andrew Lyall

Granville Sharp's Cases on Slavery by Andrew LyallThe purpose of Granville Sharpe's Cases on Slavery is twofold: first, to publish previously unpublished legal materials principally in three important cases in the 18th century on the issue of slavery in England, and specifically the status of black people who were slaves in the American colonies or the West Indies and who were taken to England by their masters. The unpublished materials are mostly verbatim transcripts made by shorthand writers commissioned by Granville Sharp, one of the first Englishmen to take up the cause of the abolition of the slave trade and slavery itself. Other related...
