Pictorial Atlas of Acupuncture
This acupuncture atlas not only provides beginners with an overview of the most important acupuncture points, but experienced practitioners can also learn about seldom used acupuncture points and also broaden their knowledge. Acupuncture in Latin means "sticking with the needle." Each of the 409 important acupuncture points is presented with an anatomical graphic, an overview of the meridian and a photo showing the needle placement. The combination of Chinese sources and the authors' therapeutic experiences provides a sensible balance between the most important indications and practical needs. The names, properties, and applications of the individual acupuncture points have been revised on this basis. This acupuncture atlas not only provides beginners with an overview of the most important acupuncture points, but experienced practitioners can also learn about seldom used acupuncture points and thus extend their knowledge.
Cinema Censorship and the State
The First time I made a film in color... I imposed a small taboo on myselfinternally. It was to never shoot the color green. Nagisa Oshima is generally regarded as the mostimportant Japanese film director after Kurosawa and is one of Japan's most productive and celebratedpostwar artists. His early films represent the Japanese New Wave at its zenith, and the films he hasmade since (including In the Realm of the Senses and Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence) have woninternational acclaim. The more than 40 writings that make up this intellectual autobiography reveala rare conjunction of personal candor and political commitment. Entertaining, concise,disarmingingly insightful, they trace in vivid and carefully articulated detail the development of0shima's theory and practice.The writings are arranged in chronological order and cover the periodfrom the mid-1950s to the late 1970s. Following a historical overview of contemporary Japanesecinema, a substantial section articulates the theoretical and political rationale of 0shima's ownfilm production, which he sees as being profoundly influenced by the social formation and politicalprocesses of postwar Japan. Among many other topics considered in his essays, Oshima questions theeconomics of film production, the ethics of the documentary film, censorship (both political andsexual), and the relation of aesthetics and social taboos. A filmography and notes round out thisimportant collection.
Constructing a Sociology of Translation
The view of translation as a socially regulated activity has opened up a broad field of research in the last few years. This volume deals with central questions of the new domain and aims to contribute to the conceptualisation of a general sociology of translation. Interdisciplinary in approach, it discusses the role of major representatives of sociology like Pierre Bourdieu, Bruno Latour, Bernard Lahire, Anthony Giddens or Niklas Luhmann in establishing a theoretical framework for a sociology of translation. Drawing on methodologies from sociology and integrating them into translation studies, the book questions some of the established categories in this discipline and calls for a redefinition of long-assumed principles. The contributions show the social involvement of translation in various fields and focus especially on the translator s position in an emerging sociology of translation, Bourdieu s influence in conceptualising this new sub-discipline, methodological questions and a sociologically oriented meta-discussion of translation studies.
Despite being central to the project of postcolonialism, the concept of resistance has received only limited theoretical examination. Writers such as Frantz Fanon, Edward Said, and Homi K. Bhabha have explored instances of revolt, opposition, or subversion, but there has been insufficient critical analysis of the concept of resistance, particularly as it relates to liberation or social and cultural transformation. In Postcolonial Resistance, David Jefferess looks to redress this critical imbalance. Jefferess argues that interpreting resistance, as these critics have done, as either acts of opposition or practices of subversion is insufficient. He discerns in the existing critical literature an alternate paradigm for postcolonial politics, and through close analyses of the work of Mohandas Gandhi and the South African reconciliation project, Postcolonial Resistance seeks to redefine resistance to reconnect an analysis of colonial discourse to material structures of colonial exploitation and inequality. Engaging works of postcolonial fiction, literary criticism, historiography, and cultural theory, Jefferess conceives of resistance and reconciliation as dependent upon the transformation of both the colonial subject and the antagonistic nature of colonial power. In doing so, he reframes postcolonial conceptions of resistance, violence, and liberation, thus inviting future scholarship in the field to reconsider past conceptualizations of political power and opposition to that power.
