Description : Huston Diehl sees Elizabethan and Jacobean drama as both a product of the Protestant Reformation—a reformed drama—and a producer of Protestant habits of thought—a reforming drama. According to Diehl, the popular London theater, which flourished in the years after Elizabeth reestablished Protestantism in England, rehearsed the religious crises that disrupted, divided, energized, and in many respects revolutionized English society. Drawing on the insights of symbolic anthropologists, Diehl explores the relationship between the suppression of late medieval religious cultures, with their rituals, symbols, plays, processions, and devotional practices, and the emergence of a popular theater under the Protestant monarchs Elizabeth and James. Questioning long-held assumptions that the reformed religion was inherently antitheatrical, she shows how the reformers invented new forms of theater, even as they condemned a Roman Catholic theatricality they associated with magic, sensuality, and duplicity. Using as her central texts the tragedies of Thomas Kyd, Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, Thomas Middleton, and John Webster, Diehl maintains that plays of the period reflexively explore their own power to dazzle, seduce, and deceive. Employing a reformed rhetoric that is both powerful and profoundly disturbing, they disrupt their own stunning spectacles. Out of this creative tension between theatricality and antitheatricality emerges a distinctly Protestant aesthetic.

Description : Bill Beckham describes how Jesus used groups of different sizes and relationships (three, twelve, seventy, and one hundred and twenty at Pentecost) to fulfill his global purpose. Beckham demonstrates how we need to relearn Christ's same relational strategy to plant churches and win a lost world for Jesus Christ. Beckham shows how many churches today have allowed an Old Testament theology to dictate their ecclesiology. He then offers practical advice and clear direction to return to the original way to live Church as an expansion movement, like Jesus did. In this book Beckham shows how the Cell Church Movement is God's answer to take the church back to a place of fruitfulness and effectiveness.

Description : WaiteOCOs biography of Joris concentrates on his career as a DutchAnabaptist instead of his later, better-known activity as a Spiritualistin Basel. Waite argues convincingly that, from 1536 to 1539, Joris wasthe most influential Anabaptist leader in the Netherlands. Adopting amiddle path between the revolutionary chiliasm of the M'nsterAnabaptist kingdom and the radical separatism of Menno Simons and hisflock, Joris sought to unite the splintered Melchiorite movement underhis leadership. However, as Waite notes, history has been unkind to Joris: largelyignored by historians (the last book-length biography to deal with hiscareer as an Anabaptist was published in Germany in 1937), he hasgenerally been portrayed in the light of his opponentsOCO polemics.Nonetheless, interest in Joris has revived in recent years, and thisbook answers the calls of historians of Anabaptism for a balancedreassessment. Waite discusses JorisOCOs life and the movement he led, within theframework of the most recent interpretations of Anabaptism and of theReformation generally. He rejects the narrow definition ofOC Evangelical AnabaptismOCO developed by Mennonite historians andemphasizes instead the movementOCOs broad nature and pluriformity, andits relationships to the popular Reformation. JorisOCOs spiritualdevelopment from Sacramentarianism to Anabaptism and finally toSpiritualism is remarkably well suited to this purpose. Waite also investigates the socioeconomic backgrounds of JorisOCOsfollowers, and the relationship of his movement to other Anabaptistgroups in northern Germany and the Netherlands. This research yieldssome interesting insights into the nature of early modern religiousdissent, and the lives of the dissenters. This book has important implications for our understanding not only ofJoris but also of northern German and Dutch Anabaptism.a"

It is the first general consideration of a selection of these innovatory pioneers and proselytisers who placed Europe at the forefront of major developments in contemporary world sport - now a phenomenon of global significance.

Description : This is the first major study of the use of other languages in medieval and Renaissance English drama. For the period 1400 to 1600 Janette Dillon examines why other languages increasingly invade English plays, and how their significance is illuminated by developments in church and state, in particular the advancing Reformation and expanding English nationalism. In marked contrast to other related studies, Dillon focuses on drama as performance and employs a wide range of works, from the mystery cycles to The Spanish Tragedy, and finally Shakespeare.

Description : The Colonial Public and the Parsi Stage is the first comprehensive study of the Parsi theatre, colonial South and Southeast Asias most influential cultural phenomenon and the precursor of the Indian cinema industry. By providing extensive, unpublished information on its first actors, audiences, production methods, and plays, this book traces how the theatrewhich was one of the first in the Indian subcontinent to adopt European stagecrafttransformed into a pan-Asian entertainment industry in the second half of the nineteenth century. Nicholson sheds light on the motivations that led to the development of the popular, commercial theatre movement in Asia through three areas of investigation: the vernacular public sphere, the emergence of competing visions of nationhood, and the narratological function that women served within a continually shifting socio-political order. The book will be of interest to scholars across several disciplines, including cultural history, gender studies, Victorian studies, the sociology of religion, colonialism, and theatre. Rashna Darius Nicholson is Assistant Professor of Theatre Studies at the University of Hong Kong. She has published works on colonial and postcolonial South Asian performance, theatre historiography, and cultural development.

Description : This study of the written and printed word on the stage of Shakespeare and his contemporaries begins by considering the significance of writing and printing in Renaissance culture. Winner of the University of Delaware Press Shakespeare Studies Award, it focuses on the work of Erasmus and Luther, who shaped attitudes toward the written word, encouraged the growth of literacy, fostered the founding of schools, and invested the written and printed word with a new and enhanced status. It also treats the invention of the printing press and the steady infiltration of books into people's lives, from their place of work to their place of worship. Author Frederick Kiefer goes on to examine the English accommodation of the forces that Erasmus and Luther helped set in motion, particularly the implications for the theater. Within a culture in which writing and printing were achieving unprecedented ascendancy, English playwrights used books, letters, and documents as props. Written materials and printed books became important to the dramatization of religious controversy, social conflict, and spiritual psychomachia. Playwrights also made extraordinary use of metaphors involving the written and printed word to describe the workings of the mind and the interaction of people. As people turned increasingly to the written and printed word for instruction and inspiration, they spoke of their lives in language generated by the print shop, library, and study. Conceiving of their experience in terms of writing and printing, they employed metaphoric books when they envisioned abstractions. They spoke, for example, of the books of conscience, nature, and fate. Such metaphors allowed people to organize conceptually the diversity and unruliness' of everyday life. Metaphoric books are the focus of this study's final section. Particular attention is given to the book of conscience in Thomas Heywood's A Woman Killed with Kindness and George Chapman's Bussy D'Ambois; the book of nature in Shakespeare's As You Like It and Pericles; and the book of fate in Thomas Kyd's The Spanish Tragedy and John Webster's The Duchess of Malfi.

Description : ‘Fallen Among Reformers’ focuses on Stella Miles Franklin’s New Woman protest literature written during her time in Chicago with the National Women’s Trade Union League (1906-1915). This time away from literary pursuits enriched Franklin’s literary productivity and provided a feminist social justice ethics, which shaped her writing. Close readings of Franklin’s (mostly unpublished) short stories, plays, and novels contextualises them in the personal politics of her everyday life and historicises them in the socio-economic and literary realities of early twentieth-century Australia and United States: themes embedded in broader cultural patterns of socialism, pacifism, and feminism.

Description : With a foreword by Seymour Lipset, Hoover Institution and George Mason University, USAThe Fall examines one of the twentieth century's great historical puzzles: why did the communist-led regimes in Eastern Europe collapse so quickly and why was the process of collapse so different from country to country? This major study explains why the impetus for change in Poland and Hungary came from the regimes themselves, while in Czechoslovakia and East Germany it was mass movements which led to the downfall of the regimes.

Description : This book seeks to assess the impact of the post-Mao market-oriented reforms on the Chinese state and its relations with society and the economy. It investigates the political and social consequences of an economic strategy which aims to introduce markets into a centrally-planned socialist economy of the Soviet type and investigates what changes have actually occurred in the organisational and political character of the Chinese state, the nature and scope of political participation, the managerial relationships between state agencies and productive enterprises and the nature of Chinese social structure and social attitudes. The book is a valuable source for those who wish to understand the complex and deep-rooted causes of the tragic events in Beijing in June 1989.

Description : This distinguished collection stands out from the recent flurry of books on health reform by its sustained and sophisticated analysis of the political dimension. In The Politics of Health Care Reform, some of America’s best-known political scientists, historians, and legal scholars make sense of our most turbulent policy issue. They dig below the jargon and minutiae to explore the enduring questions of American politics, government reform, and health care. The Politics of Health Care Reform explains how successful reforms occur in the United States and shows what is unique about health care issues. Theoretically informed, politically astute, historically nuanced, this volume takes an inventory of our health policy infrastructure. Here is an account of the institutions, ideas, and interests that shape health policy in the 1990s: Congress, the federal courts, interest groups, state governments, the public bureaucracy, business (large and small), the insurance industry, the medical profession. The volume offers a fresh look at such critical matters as public opinion, the politics of race and gender, and the lessons we can draw from other nations. The Politics of Health Care Reform is the definitive collection of political science essays about health care. Expanded from two special issues of the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law, the most prominent scholarly journal in the field it helped create, this collection will enliven the present debate over health reform and instruct everyone who is concerned about the future of American health care.
