?Battlefields have been the object of fascination for millions of tourists and the subjects of elaborate interpretation projects. This volume will outline the process and results of developing the WWII Maritime Heritage Trail: Battle of Saipan Project. This book will provide examples of how a group of archaeologists, managers and a community took a specific battle and transformed it from a collection of unknown archaeological sites into a comprehensive storied battlescape that reflects the individuals and actions of those who were involved. It will provide an in-depth view of current maritime archaeological research on submerged battlefield sites, the development of a WWII battlefield maritime heritage trail, as well as the problems and solutions of such an effort. It will cover subjects such as: -heritage and dark tourism-conflict or battlefield archaeology-public interpretation, and community engagement. This volume will serve as a practical review of a project influenced by a range of complementary areas of study and inclusive of many stakeholders, from the public to the professional and beyond. It provides an example of a balanced approach towards research and interpreting archaeological sites through the identification and inclusion of the various stakeholders (professional and community) and an awareness of what was being included, ignored, or inadequately represented in the research and interpretation. Dr. Jennifer McKinnon , the senior editor, has nearly 20 years of experience conducting archaeology and eight years teaching maritime archaeology. McKinnon was employed as a Senior Lecturer at Flinders University, Australia from 2006-2013 and now is an Assistant Professor at East Carolina University, North Carolina. During her time at Flinders she was the principal investigator of the WWII Maritime Heritage Trail: Battle of Saipan Project, a multi-year teaching and research project that focused on the investigation and interpretation of the WWII Battle of Saipan. This project partnered with Ships of Discovery of which Jennifer is a Research Associate. The project had a strong community engagement component and included students, managers, volunteers, and colleagues from Australia, the US and Saipan. McKinnon received the Governors Humanities Award for Preservation of CNMI Heritage in 2011 for her work in Saipan. McKinnon has co-edited two books (In Situ Conservation of Cultural Heritage: Public, Professionals and Preservation , PAST Foundation; A Year in Review: 2006 Program in Maritime Archaeology , Flinders University Maritime Archaeology Monograph Series), published a number of peer-reviewed journal articles (including Journal of Maritime Archaeology , International Journal of Nautical Archaeology , Bulletin of the Australasian Institute of Maritime Archaeology ) and written book chapters (two in Springer Press), as well as countless archaeological reports and public outreach products. McKinnon has also reviewed publications for Journal of Maritime Archaeology, Post-Medieval Archaeology, Maney Publishing, Left Coast Press, International Journal of Nautical Archaeology, Historical Archaeology, Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory, Queensland Archaeological Research, and Northeastern Historical Archaeology . Dr. Toni Carrell , co-editor, has 40 years of experience in maritime archaeology with experience in the Caribbean, Western Pacific, Mexico, Great Lakes, and in a variety of lakes and reservoirs in the U.S. She was employed by the National Park Service Submerged Cultural Resources Unit (NPS-SCR) from 1976-1990. Carrell joined Ships of Discovery in 1990, where she serves as Vice President. During her time with the NPS-SCR, Carrell worked extensively in the Pacific and was the senior author of Submerged Cultural Resources Assessment of Micronesia (1990) the first comprehensive archaeological report focusing on underwater cultural heritage in the region.

This book provides an in-depth look at the complex clinical, individual, and organizational challenges that our clinicians face in treating our returning soldiers struggling with the aftermath of more than a decade of war. The author explores the confluence of factors that make this time in history a perfect storm for military mental health providers. The signature wounds of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars weave a tapestry of emotional turmoil with diffuse brain injury difficulties that challenge the very best clinicians under the best conditions. The author targets different pieces of the puzzle including the prevalence of secondary trauma and burnout, the organizational factors that promote negative clinician well-being, the creation and evaluation of an online social media based intervention for burnout, and a critical review of peer coaching. Charles C. Benight is Professor, Chair of Veteran Health and Trauma, and Presidents Teaching Scholar at the University of Colorado USA. He is the author of more than 50 articles on coping with traumatic stress. He obtained his PhD from Stanford University, USA and post-doctoral training at the University of Miami in Behavioral Medicine, USA. He was awarded the Cornelia Sabine Award for Outstanding Contribution to Psychology.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

The book explores the complex world of Islam from the perspective of its adherents and activists in Azerbaijan. Baku, the most secular Muslim capital city, is a battlefield for the minds and souls of ethnic Muslims. Visiting pirs was till now the typical expression of religiosity among Azerbaijani Muslims. Sunni-Shia division was blurred. Nowadays, Shia and Sunni Muslim movements propose new distinctive identities. Foreign and local preachers took advantage of liberal religious policies of the 1990s to promote their ideas. Salafis stress the pristine Islam and the idea of universalism, while Shias underline rationality in their faith tradition. Turkish model of Islam is more inclusive towards local customs. Sufism, although not as powerful as before, also finds a committed audience. Finally, independent charismatic local leaders gain supporters. The book investigates how this pluralism affects both religious groups and believers. Competitive environment requires effective strategies and flexibility. In this process, the traditional dominance of Shiism is challenged by Sunni movements. Shiism, however, is not giving up and adapts its concepts and practices to contemporary contexts.

War and Memories - Survival With a Measure of S...

I was a Marine, 18 years old, when my company was dropped into the sweltering heat of Vietnam. We knew we were facing combat in a dense jungle where the enemy had an advantage. I prayed the Sixth Sense I realized I possessed when I was a young boy would help me survive my tour. The 60s was a decade of protests and the Vietnam War was #1on every list. I survived the war but when I got back to the States, I discovered my personal war wasnt over. I was just on a different battlefield called home. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder would not be a recognized disorder until 1980. Combat veterans returning from Vietnam struggled to overcome crippling fear and feelings for over 15 years before help and support was available. I could have been the poster boy for Veterans with PTSD. Three wives, obsessive behavior, paranoia, a total lack of trust in the human race. Work, music and golf were both the devil on my shoulder and my saving grace. They didnt help me save friendships and marriages but they got me through years of internal struggle. In 2011, I was invited to participate in a program called Freedom Bird. I was part of a group of veterans who were flown to Washington, D.C. to visit the Vietnam Wall. I looked forward to the trip. I was sure I now had my life with PTSD under control. I was wrong! Every lie, excuse and obsession I had used over the years to hold myself together dissolved as I stood in front of that Wall. It was the worst and best thing that has ever happened to me. When I got back to Arizona, I made an appointment with a doctor at the VA hospital who specialized in PTSD. Now, when I look back at the man I was when I returned from Vietnam, I understand him better. I still enjoy work, music and golf but not to the exclusion of all else. I still check in with my VA doctor once a month and I know if PTSD starts trying to take over my life again, I have help and support. I have survived with a measure of success!

Propaganda and Hogarths Line of Beauty in the F...
95,19 € *

Propaganda and Hogarths Line of Beauty in the First World War assesses the literal and metaphoric connotations of movement in William Hogarths eighteenth-century theory of a line of beauty, and subsequently employs it as a mechanism by which the visual propaganda of this era can be innovatively explored. Hogarths belief that this line epitomises not only movement, but movement at its most beautiful, creates conditions of possibility whereby the construct can be elevated from traditional analyses and consequently utilised to examine movement in artworks from both literal and metaphorical perspectives. Propagandist promotion of an alternate reality as a challenge to a current real lends itself to these dual viewpoints; the early years of the twentieth century saw growth in the advertising of conflict via the pictorial poster, instigating intentionally or otherwise an aesthetic response from soldier-artists embroiled on the battlefields. The line of beauty therefore serves as a productive mechanism by which this era of propaganda art can be appraised. Georgina Williams is a writer and artist. Georgina has exhibited paintings and photography, and is currently working on a continuing photographic project entitled Industrialia .

The Dog Who Bit a Policeman

An international gang war chooses Moscow as its battlefield. Moscow police inspector Porfiry Rostnikov has adapted well to life without Communism. But under the Soviets, blood feuds were pursued in the dark halls of bureaucracy, and now they take place in the streets. An international drug ring has chosen Moscow as its next port of call, and the only thing standing in its way is the budding Russian mob, headed by a young man whose brutality is matched only by his madness. In a gang war of this magnitude, no civilian is safe. As Rostnikov tries to stop an army of two-legged killers, his cohorts at the Moscow police department take on the four-legged variety. Dogfighting in Moscow is big business, and interests in this illegal sport stretch to the highest reaches of their corrupt department. In the new Moscow, death and profit go hand in hand. About the Author: Stuart M. Kaminsky (1934-2009) was one of the most prolific crime fiction authors of the last four decades. Born in Chicago, he spent his youth immersed in pulp fiction and classic cinema - two forms of popular entertainment which he would make his life's work. After college and a stint in the army, Kaminsky wrote film criticism and biographies of the great actors and directors of Hollywood's Golden Age. In 1977, when a planned biography of Charlton Heston fell through, Kaminsky wrote Bullet for a Star, his first Toby Peters novel, beginning a fiction career that would last the rest of his life. Kaminsky penned twenty-four novels starring the detective, whom he described as the anti-Philip Marlowe. In 1981's Death of a Dissident, Kaminsky debuted Moscow police detective Porfiry Rostnikov, whose stories were praised for their accurate depiction of Soviet life. His other two series starred Abe Lieberman, a hardened Chicago cop, and Lew Fonseca, a process server. In all, Kaminsky wrote more than sixty novels. He died in St. Louis in 2009. Review quote: Kaminsky stands out as a subtle historian, unobtrusively but entertainingly weaving into the story itself what people were wearing, eating, driving, and listening to on the radio. A page-turning romp. - Booklist. For anyone with a taste for old Hollywood B-movie mysteries, Edgar winner Kaminsky offers plenty of nostalgic fun . . . The tone is light, the pace brisk, the tongue firmly in cheek. - Publishers Weekly. Marvelously entertaining. - Newsday. Makes the totally wacky possible . . . Peters [is] an unblemished delight. - Washington Post. The Ed McBain of Mother Russia. - Kirkus Reviews.

99,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In a moment of intense uncertainty surrounding the means, ends, and limits of (countering) terrorism, this study approaches the recent theatres of war through theatrical stagings of terror. Theatre on Terror: Subject Positions in British Drama charts the terrain of contemporary subjectivities both at home and on the front line. Beyond examining the construction and contestation of subject positions in domestic and (sub)urban settings, the book follows border-crossing figures to the shifting battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan. What emerges through the analysis of twenty-one plays is not a dichotomy but a dialectics of home and front, where fluid, uncontainable subjects are constantly pushing the contours of conflict. Revising the critical consensus that post-9/11 drama primarily engages with the real, Ariane de Waal argues that these plays navigate the complexities of the discourse - rather than the historical or social realities - of war and terrorism. British theatre on terror negotiates, inflects, and participates in the discursive circulation of stories, idioms, controversies, testimonies, and pieces of (mis)information in the face of global insecurities.
