This book extends that analysis to postmodernism by looking at the status of science, technology, and the arts, the significance of technocracy, and the way the flow of information is controlled in the Western world.

This is the first book to look at the process of European integration by drawing on both established and new trends in postmodern thinking and analysis. The book asks how we can study the process of European integration in the current climate, and maps out the central elements of the academic debate dealing with the future of integration, and 'Europe' in general. The author stimulates fresh readings of the European issue, encouraging the development of new analytical horizons. This is a significant cutting-edge contribution to debates in politics, comparative politics and European studies.

Postmodernity and postmodernism have become leading theoretical issues in the discussion of contemporary culture, and this collection attempts to confront some of the major issues: To what extent does western society's entry into a post-industrial world require us to rethink the characteristic modernist understanding of society and culture? If the self-reflecting, self-quoting culture we experience now is postmodern, is it a culture in which the great modern debates about history and meaning must be radically reworked? Is postmodernism in art complicit with the processes of post-industrial capitalism, or does it subvert them? There are contributions from academics working at the New York School of Social Research and in departments of literary studies, sociology and visual arts at various Australian universities.

Brand New Church? aims to make sense of what 'postmodern' actually looks and feels like in real life, and to ask what this means for the church. Over the past few years, Graeme Fancourt has travelled around the UK and USA consulting with a wide range of church leaders, including Sue Wallace, who founded Visions and Transcendence, Jonny Baker, a member of Grace, and Roy Searle of the Northumbria Community. He writes: "The church that I have encountered is thoughtful, active and confident in the gospel . . . Though holding many different views, these leaders all appear to take seriously the need for the church genuinely to engage (positively or negatively) with what it perceives to be the postmodern condition." The author reveals and explores the diversity of thinking found in local churches, in colleges and universities, and expressed in works of contemporary theology: the approaches of a range of writers, such as D. A. Carson, Peter Rollins, Pete Ward, Tom Wright and Stanley Hauerwas are examined to stimulating effect. The result is a thoroughly vibrant read, which offers a broad understanding of how - in these postmodern times - the church might engage fruitfully in dialogue and mission for the sake of all God's people.

Rogowski’s second edition of this bestselling textbook responds to the major changes to social work practice since the first edition was published. It is fully revised and updated to include new material that is essential for students and practising social workers today. Taking a critical perspective, Rogowski evaluates social work’s development, nature and rationale over approximately 150 years. He explores how neoliberalism is at the core of the profession’s crisis and calls for progressive, critical and radical changes to social work policy and practices based on social justice and social change. This new edition is substantially updated to explore: • the impact of austerity policies since 2010; • failures to realise the progressive possibilities which followed the death of ‘Baby P’; • contemporary examples of critical and radical practice. It also includes a range of student-friendly features including chapter summaries, key learning and discussion points, and further reading.

If the postmodern condition is a dystopia characterized by alienation and despair, argues distinguished sociologist Stanford Lyman, postmodern epistemologies compound the problem by denigrating Enlightenment philosophies that still offer agency and hope to those who struggle to be free. In this, his sixth volume in the Studies in American Sociology series, Lyman examines this contradiction as it has shaped American discourses on race and community, asking why Gunnar Myrdal's "American Dilemma" is still unresolved; how Chinese workers have fared in the labor movement and in labor history; what searches for "the lost tribes of Israel" have meant socially and historically; how cinema has offered metaphors for social action but presented failed utopias on screen; and how we have not yet established a basic definition of "the good life." In each of these instances, Lyman seeks new routes in the quest for justice.

The Cinema of Wim Wenders, the first anthology of scholarly work on Wenders, is a unique anthropology of source materials and selected critical essays on the films of Wim Wenders, a major filmmaker in the so-called New German Cinema movement. His work, probably more than that of any other European director, reflects the tension between the European auteur tradition and the increasing dominance of the American media industry. In both his filmmaking and his critical writing, he explores how the relationship between image and narrative manifests the basic opposition between these two film traditions. This book serves as an introduction to the central concerns of his cinema while situation his work within German film history and the contemporary debates about postmodern film and media theory.

The term postmodernist was originally used to describe a cultural trend that opposed the modernist style in art, architecture and design. It has come to be applied to a much wider range of philosophical and social science discourses concerned with the crisis of modernity' - the end of the assumptions, overarching theories and meta-narratives that have gained prominence since the Enlightenment. In this major statement on postmodernism, an international and interdisciplinary cast of contributors assess the implications of this and the term's application in social and cultural theory. Is there a single definition of postmodernism, or is it a catch-all concept for quite different responses to the end of modernity? How does the social and philosophical questioning of modernity relate to aesthetic theory and cultural change? The postmodern condition' is said to signify a world of ever multiplying signifying processes, a hypertrophy of images, a dissolution of established categories and identities and an ever-increasing scepticism towards claims of truth, meaning and value. What are the implications of such fragmentations for theology, feminism and Marxism? What indeed are postmodern politics? Did humanity find its limits in the confusion of tongues, the Tower of Babel? Featuring both an introduction to and an interview with Jean-Francois Lyotard, this unique volume, originally published as a "Theory, Culture & Society "double issue, comprises the most lucid interrogation of and contribution to the most important intellectual movement of our time.

Professing in the Postmodern Academy examines the landscape of religiously affiliated higher education in America from the perspective of faculty members who are critically committed to the future of church-related institutions. The book includes chapters on a variety of topics from members of the Rhodes Consultation on the Future of the Church-Related College, a project that has involved ninety church-related institutions since 1996. The book features an introduction by Stephen R. Haynes, director of the Rhodes Consultation, that reviews twentieth-century scholarship on religiously affiliated higher education; chapters on the church-related college's "postmodern opportunity" by Paul Lakeland, Margaret Falls-Corbitt, and William Cahoy; considerations of the academic vocation by Richard Kyte, Elizabeth Newman, and John Neary; treatments of pedagogy and praxis by Julia O'Brien, Timothy Beal, and Dominic Scibilia; studies of mission and curriculum by Keith Graber Miller, Marcia Bunge, Jonathan Grieser, and Corrie Norman; and an afterword by Haynes. The book provides a unique and innovative contribution to the literature on religion and higher education by giving voice to outstanding junior faculty willing to imagine a creative and vibrant future for the American church-related college.
