The Century Of Taste

by George Dickie, The Century Of Taste Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Century Of Taste book, The Century of Taste offers an exposition and critical account of the central figures in the early development of the modern philosophy of art. Dickie traces the modern theory of taste from its first formulation by Francis Hutcheson, to blind alleys followed by Alexander Gerard and Archibald Allison, its refinement and complete expression by Hume, and finally to its decline in the hands of Kant. In a clear and straightforward style, Dickie offers sympathetic discussions of the theoretical aims of these philosophers, but does not shy from controversy--pointing out, for instance, the obscurities and inconsistencies in Kant's aesthetic writings, and arguing that they have been overrated.

The Century Of The Child

by Theresa R. Richardson, The Century Of The Child Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Century Of The Child book, In this book, Richardson crosses disciplinary boundaries to examine mental hygiene issues of contemporary concern in both the United States and Canada. The work juxtaposes a social history of the child in the twentieth century to shifts in private and public power as influenced by the mental hygiene movements in both countries. The author shows how the historical record sheds light on current policy concerned with mentally, emotionally, and educationally handicapped children. As a sociology of mental illness, the book examines the relationship between mental hygiene as a form of knowledge and the social institutions that fostered the use of psychiatric perspectives concerning child and family life. Significant topics covered in this regard include the history of early childhood and parent education, the origins of child psychiatry in treating juvenile delinquency, and the evolution of contemporary concepts of normal development.

City Of The Century

by James B. Lane, City Of The Century Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download City Of The Century book, The United States Steel Corporation founded Gary in 1906 as an experiment in industrial urban planning, and the inscription on the city's official seal accordingly proclaims it the "City of the Century." Gary proved to be no more immune to the woes of industrialization than any other American city, however. To some, in fact, it has come to epitomize all that is wrong with contemporary urban life. But as this book clearly shows, the people of Gary have refused to surrender their sense of hope, their dignity, and their pride to the prophesiers of doom. At once scholarly and colorful, "City of the Century" is an outgrowth of urban historian James B. Lane's popular weekly columns for the Gary Post-Tribune. Lane uses the oral testimony of the people of Gary to tell a fascinating story. There are episodes of personal tragedy and heroism here, of frustrated dreams and tarnished reputations, and of challenges met and obstacles overcome.

Download The Turn Of The Century book, Rewritten versions of contributions to an international conference held at the University of Antwerp in May 1992. Starting point for the conference was the vagueness of the very terms 'modernism' and 'modernity'. In the first section a group of comparatists address the theoretical and terminological problems of modernism. Practical readings of modernist writers; discussions of different modernist movements; and, the work of critics who have contributed to debates about modernism make up the second section. The third section looks at the problem of modernism from an interartistic and interdisciplinary perspective.

Order For The Oceans At The Turn Of The Century

by Davor Vidas, Order For The Oceans At The Turn Of The Century Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Order For The Oceans At The Turn Of The Century book, This book is a state-of-the-art report on ocean law and politics today, written by 40 contributors from six continents. At this important early stage of implementation of the Law of the Sea Convention, this book assesses where we have been going in the past decade and charts the way ahead. Implementation of the Convention - from the perspective of interaction of politics and law - is the unifying theme of the book. Under this, three basic aspects have emerged as crucial during the 1990s: (1) evolution of new regimes; (2) institutionalisation; and (3) new patterns of participation. These are explored systematically in sections on: the Convention, its implementing agreements and related international institutions (Parts I and II); interaction of law of the sea with other regimes, including those for polar regions (Parts III and IV); the various levels (international, national and transnational) and actors involved in the implementation of the Convention (Part V); and a number of salient issues in implementation today (Part VI).

Tanzania At The Turn Of The Century

by , Tanzania At The Turn Of The Century Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Tanzania At The Turn Of The Century book, The study builds on lessons from Tanzania's development experience of the past four decades, with emphasis on the period following the 1996 Country Economic Memorandum, which focused on the challenge of reforms, in particular the impact of reforms on growth, incomes, and welfare in the country. The study assesses Tanzania's current development status against the country's ambition, since independence, to rid the nation of three archenemies: poverty, ignorance, and disease. Structural transformation has been extremely limited, with agriculture still dominating the economy, a non-diversified economy that hampers flexibility to withstand shock occurrences. Nonetheless, the country intensified macroeconomic policy reforms, significantly stabilizing the economy, with falling inflation levels, climbing foreign exchange reserves, and an overall fiscal balance. But the main factors identified behind the slow development progress, are primarily inadequate capital accumulation, and productivity growth; poor support for the transformation of agriculture; disrupted progress in building human capital; and, delayed demographic transition. However, the steady progress in reorienting its economy to a market-based operation, is creating space for exploiting the large potential of private sector initiative. It is emphasized that growth will only be sustainable, if firmly rooted in exploiting the domestic resource base, international competitiveness, and an aggressive pursuit of new export opportunities. -- Publisher description.

A Century For The Century

by Martin Hutner, A Century For The Century Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download A Century For The Century book, Here are the hundred greatest printed books of the twentieth century. Given another pair of editors, you'd probably be offered a different list, but this one serves and serves well, for it concentrates not only on the recognized chestnuts, but also lesser-known, and often exceedingly recherche volumes that have left their mark. It is noteworthy that only two books in the survey were printed by offset; the rest are all letterpress. This survey, while admittedly neither comprehensive nor definitive, provides an overview of fine printing over the past hundred years. Despite Morison's contention that typography is the most conservative of all the arts, the forms, designs, and techniques of book production continue to mutate, evolve, and advance. If we are to overcome the complexities of a digital age, we would do well to appreciate, if not embrace, the heritage so convincingly presented on these pages.
