              Author Paul Bowman recasts our understanding of the history of martial arts, showing how Western media representations in the 1970s not only popularized the concept but actively created 'martial arts' as a recognizable idea and cultural phenomenon.

              Rey Chow is arguably one of the most prominent intellectuals working in the humanities today. Characteristically confronting both entrenched and emergent issues in the interlocking fields of literature, film and visual studies, sexuality and gender, postcolonialism, ethnicity, an...d cross-cultural politics, her works produce surprising connections among divergent topics at the same time as they compel us to think through the ethical and political ramifications of our academic, epistemic, and cultural practices. This anthology - the first to collect key moments in Chow's engaging thought - provides readers with an ideal introduction to some of her most forceful theoretical explorations. Organized into two sections, each of which begins with a brief statement designed to establish linkages among various discursive fields through Chow's writings, the anthology also contains an extensive Editor's Introduction, which situates Chow's work in the context of contemporary critical debates. For all those pursuing transnational cultural theory and cultural studies, this book is an essential resource. Praise for Rey Chow "[Rey Chow is] methodologically situated in the contentious spaces between critical theory and cultural studies, and always attending to the implications of ethnicity."?Social Semiotics "Rich and powerful work that provides both a dazzling synthesis of contemporary cultural theory and at the same time an exemplary critique of Chinese cinema."?China Information "Should be read by all who are concerned with the future of human rights, liberalism, multiculturalism, identity politics, and feminism."?Dorothy Ko "Wide-ranging, theoretically rich, and provocative... completely restructures the problem of ethnicity."?Fredric Jameson

              Infinitely Determinable - Children and Childhood in Modern Literature

              Infinitely Determinable - Children and Childhood in Modern Literature (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Upon the "discovery of childhood," as named by Philippe Aries, bourgeois culture and modern literature marked out an arcane realm that, while scarcely accessible for adults, acted as a space for projections of the most contradictory kind and diverse ideological purposes: childhoo...d. As this book reveals, from the eighteenth century onwards, the child increasingly came into focus in literature as a mysterious creature. Now the child seems a strange being, constantly unsettling and alienating, although exposed to ongoing territorialization. This is possible because the space of 'childhood' is essentially blank and indefinite. Modernity, therefore, has discovered it as a zone, in the words of Friedrich Schiller of "boundless determinability."

              Deconstruction thrives on uncertainty, which is often baffling for newcomers. This book applies complex theory to recognizable examples from pop music, TV, film, books and newspapers. It unpicks the ideas of deconstruction. It also shows students of cultural studies how to use de...construction to read and make sense of culture.
