The Propaganda of Peace
The Role of Media and Culture in the Northern Ireland Peace Process
By Greg McLaughlin and Stephen Baker
When political opponents Ian Paisley and Martin McGuiness were confirmed as First Minister and Deputy First Minister of a new Northern Ireland executive in May 2007, a chapter was closed on Northern Ireland’s troubled past.. The Propaganda of Peace analzes this incident and others in a wider study of the role of the media in conflict resolution and transformation. With analysis of media forms, it proposes a radically different approach to the media’s role in reporting and representing.

España Cambia de Piel (1954–1964)

Confronting Theory
The Psychology of Cultural Studies
By Philip Bell
Confronting Theory presents a methodological (philosophical) and educational evaluation and critique of what has come to be known as Theory (‘with a capital-T’) in cross-disciplinary humanities education. Rather than merely dismissing Theory writing as risibly pretentious and abstract, Confronting Theory examines its principal concepts from the perspective of academic psychology and shows that although many of these analyses sound like revolutionary psychological theory, few, if any, have empirical implications that students can evaluate.

The Film Paintings of David Lynch
Challenging Film Theory
By Allister MacTaggart
Aimed at both Lynch fans and film studies specialists, Allister MacTaggart addresses Lynch’s films from the perspective of the relationship between commercial film, avantgarde art, and cultural theory. Individual Lynch works – The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Lost Highway, The Straight Story, Mulholland Drive, Inland Empire – are discussed in relation to other films and directors. The Film Paintings of David Lynch offers a unique perspective on an influential director, weaving together a range of theoretical approaches to Lynch’s films to make exciting new connections among film theory, art history, psychoanalysis and cinema.

French Costume Drama of the 1950s
Fashioning Politics in Film
By Susan Hayward
When political and civil unrest threatened France’s social order in the 1950s, French cinema provided audiences a seemingly unique form of escapism from such troubled times: a nostalgic look back to the France of the nineteenth and earlier centuries, with costume dramas set in the age of Napoleon, the Belle Époque, the Revolution and further back to seventeenth-century swashbuckler adventures and tales of mystery and revenge. Film critics have routinely dismissed this period and this genre of French cinema, overlooking its importance in terms of political cultural history.

Don’t Look Now
British Cinema in the 1970s
Edited by Paul Newland
While post-war British cinema and the British new wave have received much scholarly attention, the misunderstood period of the 1970s has been comparatively ignored. Don’t Look Now uncovers forgotten but richly rewarding films, including Nicolas Roeg’s Don’t Look Now and the films of Lindsay Anderson and Barney Platts-Mills. This volume offers insight into the careers of important film-makers and sheds light on the genres of experimental film, horror, rock, and punk films, as well as representations of the black community, shifts in gender politics, and adaptations of television comedies.

Pop Up
Popular Music Since 1945
By Anthony May and Cory Messenger
In film, television, and advertising, a few bars from a pop song can evoke a moment in time – a singular intersection of personal memory and public history – with unparalleled intensity. In the years after World War II, the recording industry ushered in a new version of popular music, supplanting the big bands and crooners that had dominated the airwaves and dance halls of previous decades. In its various forms – singles, albums, and compact discs – the sale of pop music on disc became a central feature of western life until the shift to the mp3 in the new millennium.

The Philosophical Actor
A Practical Meditation for Practicing Theatre Artists
By Donna Soto-Morettini
There have been many books published on acting, actor training, and practical theories for preparing for a role, but none of these books have looked philosophically at the concepts that we use when we talk about acting. This book is the first attempt to grapple with the fundamental questions of truth, art, and human nature unexamined in past treatments, from the first essay by Diderot to the exhaustive system described by Stanislavski. With wide appeal to actors, directors, acting students, acting teachers and trainers, Soto-Morettini draws from twenty-five years of experience as an acting teacher and director to introduce innovative ways of thinking about acting.

The Enactive Evolution of the Practitioner
By Patricia Cain
In an era which has seen many forms of artistic creation becoming digitized, the practice of drawing, in the traditional sense, has remained constant. However, many publications about the relationship between drawing and thinking rely on discipline-dependent distinctions to discuss the activity’s function. Drawing redefines drawing more holistically as an enactive phenomenon, and makes connections between a variety of disciplines in order to find out how drawing helps us understand the world.

Unmapping the City
Perspectives of Flatness
Edited by Alfredo Cramerotti
Unmapping the City, the first title in the new Intellect series ‘Critical Photography’, features photographs shot between 2004 and 2008 in fourteen different cities around the world. The images are linked by their shared attempts to define a two-dimensional approach to a three-dimensional built reality, and to address spatial representation and urbanity through art. In representing the cityscape through a flat texture of lines and minimal colour tones, the book draws the reader into a conversation about the interplay between reality and its representation. This volume significantly challenges and expands the critical discourse on photography and text and will be of interest to artists, curators, photographers, architects, and critical theorists.
