Bloomsbury Academic and the Future of Your University
Dear Reader, Much has happened since we published our last catalogue. We have diversified with the acquisition of Duckworth Academic and Bristol Classical Press. We now have a marvellous backlist of 900 titles and a new programme of 40 titles a year in classics, ancient history, archaeology and philosophy. A separate catalogue for these titles is available in print upon request or online at www.bloomsburyacademic.com. Recent months have seen the announcement of drastic cuts to university funding in the humanities and social sciences in the UK. We share academic concern over these developments and they confirm our resolution to seek innovative ways of enhancing access to important research. Many of our research publications are on Creative Commons licences; additional functionality and further e-content are available at attractive prices and we will be introducing special discounts for print books wherever we can. Our publishing programme also reflects our concern over the future of the humanities and social sciences. In January we published The Public Value of the Humanities edited by Jonathan Bate (see page 3). This is being closely followed by A Manifesto for the Public University edited by John Holmwood and For the University by Thomas Docherty (both on page 2). We have several titles dealing with topical global issues and we are particularly delighted to be publishing How Creativity is Changing China (see page 18) by the distinguished academic and policy maker Li Wuwei and a timely new series, edited by John Horne, Globalizing Sports Studies (see pages 11–12). Please look at our new digital platform, where you can see the full range of our publishing, read titles available on Creative Commons licenses and examine a sample chapter of our textbooks. We are also beginning to offer additional resources to complement our books. We always welcome suggestions for further enhancements from our readers. Best regards,

Democracy and the Future of the Institution Thomas Docherty, University of Warwick, UK
The Browne report advocates, in effect, the privatization of higher education in England. With the proposed removal of the current cap on student fees and the removal of state funding from undergraduate degree programmes, universities are set for a period of major reorganization not seen since the higher education reforms of the 1960s. This book responds to the key debates that the Browne review and Government statements have sparked, with essays on the cultural significance of the
university, the role of the government in funding research, inequality in higher education, the role of quangos in public life and the place of social science research. It is a timely and considered exploration of the role of universities and a reminder of what we should value and protect in our higher education system.

For the University is a book both about and for the university in an age of mass and globalized education. Thomas Docherty analyzes the current problems facing the university as an institution, offering positive arguments for a revived and vibrant set of institutional arrangements and governing principles. This book considers the place of the university as an important global institution, now in a charged political and international public sphere. Docherty places current debates
within their wider political and economic context, focusing on the relationship of the university to current and emerging models of democracy. The question of what the university will be – rather than it is, was, or might be – is at the heart of this book, and Docherty ably traces its history and present condition in order to offer us a vision for the future.

RESEARCH | LITERATURE
This book explores what is at stake in our confessional culture. Thomas Docherty examines confessional writings, arguing that through all this work runs a philosophical substratum – the conditions under which it is possible to assert a confessional mode – that needs exploration. In a postmodern ‘transparent society’, the self coincides with its self-representations. Such a position is central to the idea of authenticity and truth-telling in confessional writing: it is the basis of saying, truthfully, ‘Here I take my stand’. What
other consequences might there be of an assumption of the primacy of transparency? Two areas are examined in detail: the religious and the judicial. Docherty shows that despite the tendency to regard transparency as a general good, our contemporary culture of transparency has engendered a society in which autonomy (or the very authority of the subject that proclaims ‘I confess’) is grounded in guilt, reparation and victimhood.

Elective Affinity | The Role of luck in The Art, Ethics, and Politics of Daniel Deronda
This new book presents a series of linked essays exploring Eliot’s credentials as a radical thinker. Opening with her relationship to the Romantic tradition, Newton goes on to discuss her reading of Darwinism, her radical critique of Victorian values and her affiliation with the modernists. The final essays discuss her work in relation to Derridean themes and to Bernard Williams’ concept of moral luck. What emerges is a very different Eliot from the conservative figure portrayed in much critical literature.

‘An opinionated but always interesting history’ – Financial Times In an effort to chronicle the history of India, Meghnad Desai begins at the end of the fifteenth century, taking us through to the present day. This ambitious volume is testament to the contradictory, diverse, difficult and fascinating saga of India as a nation.
Meghnad Desai is Professor Emeritus of Economics at the LSE. He founded the Centre for the Study of Global Governance (now LSE Global Governance). In 1991, Meghnad Desai was created Lord Desai of St Clement Danes. By enabling leading scholars and other public figures to explore the subjects that inspired them and Lord Desai, this title offers a fascinating exploration of progress on economics, human rights and development issues. The initiative identifies the continuing contribution
made by Lord Desai, and the development of the themes highlighted by his work. This book reflects Lord Desai’s work in diverse fields of the social sciences (economics, philosophy, political science) as well as his passionate commitment to the freedom and wellbeing of individuals, and his optimism about human progress and globalization.

Alternative media have historically been a central force in social change. In this new book, Kenix argues, that they do not subvert the hierarchies of access that have always been fundamental to mainstream media. In fact, their journalistic norms and routines have always drawn on the professional standards of the mainstream. Through comparative analysis Kenix posits the perception of ‘mainstream’ and ‘alternative’ as a misconception, arguing that they’ve always existed on the same continuum and continue
to converge. Her vision recalibrates the media spectrum. This book examines alternative media while being cognizant that they are not situated completely outside the ideological mainstream, carrying distinctive identities excluded from entrenched, elite systems of power. The alternative media can – and do – construct distinct ‘alternative communications’ but they do so along a strikingly different continuum than hitherto envisaged.
User-generated content and user-led innovation have become significant cultural and economic phenomenons. Media consumers have become media producers. This book offers a rich description and analysis of the emerging participatory, co-creative relationships within the videogames industry. Banks discusses the challenges of incorporating these co-creative relationships into the development process. Drawing on a decade of research within the industry, the book gives us a unique insight
into the continually changing and growing world of videogames.

This book delves into the changes in technology regarding higher education and seeks to define what it means to be a scholar in the digital age. While industries such as music, newspapers, film and publishing have seen radical changes in their business models and practices as a direct result of new technologies, higher education has so far resisted the wholesale changes we have seen elsewhere. However, a gradual and fundamental shift in the practice of academics is taking place. Every aspect of
scholarly practice is seeing changes effected by the adoption and possibilities of new technologies. This book explores these changes and their implications for higher education.

The study investigates the cultural production of the visual iconography of popular pleasure grounds from the eighteenth century pleasure garden to the contemporary theme park. Deborah Philips identifies the literary genres, including fairy tale, gothic horror, Egyptiana and the Western which are common to carnival sites, tracing their historical transition across a range of media to become familiar icons of popular culture. Though the bricolage of narratives and imagery found in the contemporary
leisure zone has been read by many as emblematic of postmodern culture, the author argues that the clash of genres and stories is less a consequence of postmodern pastiche than it is the result of a history and popular tradition of conventionalized iconography.

This book highlights the way in which contemporary forms of governance, policy and politics have been reframed by women ‘working the spaces of power’. It shows how links between activism and work have generated innovations that have since become ‘common sense’ forms of policy and practice. Janet Newman draws on interviews with a wide variety of women in positions of power. All of their work has been informed by a range of social movements and activist commitments. Newman
uses these interviews to interrogate, develop and challenge existing approaches to understanding social and political change.

Conclusion: The Global Media Sports Cultural Complex: Continuities, Convulsions and Campaigns
In Japanese Women and Sport, Robin Kietlinski sets out to problematize the hegemonic image of the delicate Japanese woman. Kietlinski locates the discussion of Japanese women in sport within a larger East Asian context and considers the socio-economic position and history of modern Japan. Reaching from the early 20th century to the present day, Kietlinski traces the progression of Japanese women’s participation in sport from the first female school for
physical education and the foundations of competitive sport through to their growing presence in the Olympics and international sport. This is a fascinating book on a previously overlooked area in the history of modern Japan.

How has globalization impacted on sports media? What are the economic ramifications? And what is the future of sports media? This book investigates the constituents, dimensions and implications of the flows of media sport from the Global West to the Global East and in the reverse direction. At an historical moment when the relative stability of the Western media sport order is under challenge, it analyzes a range of key structures, practices and issues whose
ramifications extend far beyond the fields of play and the national contexts in which sport events take place. It is a really exciting book for all those interested in this emerging field.

This is a political and intellectual biography of an important and controversial figure in British race politics. Darcus Howe, recently a high-profile television journalist, has a long history as a grass-roots activist. On arrival in Britain in the early 70s he joined the British Black Panthers. Here he attracted the attention of Special Branch. Over the next decade he was involved in high profile campaigns that led to a seismic shift in British attitudes. The book uses Howe’s life as a lens through
which to explore the British civil rights movement in the 1970s and ‘80s. Howe has a unique intellectual position forged through personal experience and his interaction with leading black thinkers.

A Mutual Respect Approach to Protest Crowd–Police Relations Vern Neufeld Redekop and Shirley Paré How can large protest crowds be better and more respectfully managed by police? This topical book applies the principles of communitybased conflict resolution to the policing of large crowds, suggesting a new approach based on mutual respect for protesters as principled dissenters and for police as non-repressive agents of public order.

RESEARCH | DEVELOPMENT STUDIES
The Access to Knowledge series addresses the issues currently facing intellectual property and innovation in developing countries. These titles explore how innovation, copyrights and patents have influenced their various economies. The series incorporates grassroots perspectives as well as new research, which is unavailable elsewhere. These thoughtfully written and thoroughly researched books consider emerging ideas and practices in innovation and collaboration in the individual contexts of countries including Brazil, India and Egypt. They consider the role of intellectual property policies in the expansion of economic growth. Among the topics discussed are exceptions and limitations to copyright, free software and open business models, patent reform and access to medicines, as well as open innovation in the biotechnology sector. These books are a must-read for anyone with an interest in economic development and the fundamental human right to access knowledge. We welcome the submission of new proposals for this series. Please contact the commissioning editor: email@example.com
This book considers the significance of the creative industries on China’s economy and society. The question Professor Wuwei investigates is not ‘whether’ creativity is changing China – but ‘how’ creativity is changing China. The outcome will have a profound impact on how China develops and its economic role in the world. Creative industries maintain and protect historical and cultural heritage, improve
cultural capital, and foster communities as well as individual creativity. This leads to the improvement of cultural assets of cities, the establishment of city brands and identity, the promotion of the creative economy, and overall economic and social development. In this context, creativity is changing China forever.

Human Rights and Democracy
The Precarious Triumph of Ideals Todd Landman, University of Essex, UK
TEXTBOOKS | POLITICS
The twentieth century has been described as the bloodiest in human history, but it was also the century in which people around the world embraced ideas of democracy and human rights as never before. They constructed social, political and legal institutions seeking to contain human behaviour, ensuring that by the turn of the twenty-first century more countries were democratic than non-democratic and the protection of human rights had been extended far beyond the expectations of
the creators of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Todd Landman offers an optimistic, yet cautionary tale of these developments, drawing on the literature from politics, international relations and international law. He celebrates the global turn from tyranny and violence towards democracy and rights but he also warns of the precariousness of these achievements.

Inventing the Nation Series
Series Editor: Keith Robbins, University of Wales, UK ‘Nationalist’ writers and politicians have been apt to take the ‘nation’ as a ‘given’ entity, perhaps, indeed, a providential one. But the histories in this series explore the extent to which ‘nations’ are made, not born, whether through conscious manipulation by an elite, guided by more ‘popular’ imperatives, or a combination of the two. Each volume in the series explains how and when the modern nation state of its title came about, and at the same time demonstrates that the process was complex, contingent... anything but pre-ordained. Titles in the series include: • Germany • India and Pakistan • Russia • Italy • China • Ireland • France ISSN: 1754-5943

Fully revised and updated, the new edition of Inventing the Nation: Germany explains the diverse ways in which national identity has been constructed over more than three centuries and with eight different territorial states all claiming to be German. It highlights the plurality of contested definitions of ‘Germanness’. The themes covered include the struggles between democratic and non-democratic inventions of the nation, the construction of the racial nation under Nazism, economic definitions of the
nation and the impact of war on the construction of German national identity. Not only does the book use history and historiography, but also literature, art and a range of other disciplines to provide answers to the question which has haunted Germans ever since it was first asked by Ernst Moritz Arndt: ‘What is a German’s fatherland?’

Reading and Studying Literature Series
An exciting collaboration between Bloomsbury and The Open University, this series is a three volume introduction to literary study. It covers literary history from William Shakespeare to W. G. Sebald in a style at once accessible and lively. The books explore the uses we make in the present of the literature of the past. Each book examines a stimulating mix of texts, both canonical and non-canonical, fictional and non-fictional, from writers working across a variety of genres. Readings that may be more difficult to obtain are included in the text. Each literary period is discussed in terms of an overarching theme, and an important theoretical concept is introduced in each part, providing a clear focus for discussion and for further study. Taken together, the three texts provide a comprehensive and engaging introduction to literary study, yet each may also be used separately for students taking more focused courses. The series: • Offers a comprehensive introduction to literary study • Examines literary movements within their historical context • Discusses a huge range of texts • Combines close textual reading with broad context • Introduces important theoretical concepts, which are carefully woven into the discussion of each literary period • Is designed to stimulate discussion and encourage further exploration

This opening volume introduces the Renaissance through an exploration of love and death in tragic drama; and the long eighteenth century through the lens of travel writing, using both fictional and non-fictional narratives. Running through the volume is a discussion of the twin theoretical concepts of ‘text’ and ‘context’. The Renaissance chapters provide extensive practice in close textual analysis while also considering performance aspects of the featured plays. The eighteenth century chapters explore how the meaning of texts is affected by their relationship to context.

European romanticism is approached through a consideration of the evolution of the idea of the romantic author and the romantic inner life, while Victorian culture is explored through a reading of ideas of ‘home’ and ‘abroad’. The theoretical concepts explored in this volume are ‘the author’ and ‘books and readers’. The chapters foreground ways that literary texts can and cannot be read in biographical context, explore the publication, reception and crossmedia adaptation of key texts, and offer a fascinating discussion of nineteenth century reading practices.
Contents Part 1: Romantic Lives: Wordsworth: Poet in a Landscape | Shelley: A Life in Poetry | De Quincey: Journalist in the City | Hoffmann and Pushkin: Tormented and Divided Selves | Part 2: Home and Abroad in the Victorian Age, c. 1832– 1901: Wuthering Heights (1847) | Arthur Conan Doyle, The Sign of Four (1890) | Robert Louis Stevenson, ‘The Beach of Falesá’ (1892–3)
Adopting a consciously cosmopolitan approach, this book opens with an examination of depictions of the city in the literature of modernism and its aftermath, linked by theoretical discussions of the idea of ‘period’. Part two discusses migration and memory, examining the expansion of English into ‘Englishes’ and the rethinking of national traditions within a newly global sensibility. Featured texts deal with the experience of being cut off from the past and with the persistence and uses of memory. The overarching theoretical concept featured is ‘literatures’.
Contents Part 1: Twentieth Century Cities: James Joyce, Dubliners (1914) | Fritz Lang (dir.), Metropolis (1927) | New York | Part 2: Migration and Memory: Sam Selvon, The Lonely Londoners (1956) | Elizabeth Bishop | Brian Friel, Dancing at Lughnasa (1990) | W.G. Sebald, The Emigrants (1993)

A Thematic History in Fiction and Film Darryl Jones Is horror an antiestablishment force and an argument for social revolution? Is it a liberating exposé of human nature and a peek at the dark side of the unconscious? Or is it pure evil, designed to corrupt and deprave? Starting from such questions about the nature of horror, this book is an accessibly written and thematically grounded history of the genre.

This book traces the history of television journalism in Britain from its austere roots in the BBC’s postwar monopoly to the present-day plethora of 24 hour channels. It asks why a medium whose thirst for pictures, personalities and drama make it, some believe, intrinsically unsuitable for serious journalism should remain in the internet age the most influential purveyor of news. Barnett compares the two very different trajectories of television journalism in Britain and the US, arguing that despite
a very different set of historical, regulatory and institutional practices, there is a very real danger that Britain is now heading down the same road as America. As a result, British public life will be diminished.
