ABEYASEKERE, Susan. Jakarta : A History. Singapore [et al] : Oxford University Press, 1987. Pp (4),[v]-xvii,(3),[3]-280,(2),+ 16 pp plates. Maps. Index. 8vo, illustrated grey paper-covered boards (hardcover), lettered in blue, orange, pale yellow, white and black.

"This study of Jakarta presents the first general history of the city. It follows two main themes. One is the clash between dream and reality. For nearly 400 years, governments have wanted Jakarta to be the show-piece for their policies in the Indonesian archipelago. From 1619 until 1949, the Dutch saw the city as a European enclave displaying the gifts of good government and modern technology which they brought to their East Indies. After independence, President Sukarno lavished attention on his capital, hoping to make it the pride of the nation and the Beacon of the New Emerging Forces. Since Sukarno's fall, the New Order Government has channelled investment into Jakarta and carried through extensive modernization plans in line with its general aim of economic development for Indonesia. This book looks at the consequences of those centuries of policies for Jakarta, and in particular for the vast majority of its inhabitants who have always been too poor to fit into plans for the city.

The other main theme is the rich complexity of Jakarta's population. For centuries the city grew relatively slowly, and immigrant groups of Chinese, Arabs, Europeans and Indonesians from all over the archipelago mingled to produce unique cultural forms. In the last 40 years, that intricate web has been torn apart by political changes and massive waves of Indonesian immigrants who are still struggling to create their own urban culture in a predominantly rural country."

4 ABRAMOV-Van RIJK, Elena Parlar cantando : The Practice of Reciting Verses in Italy from 1300 to 1600.
Peter Lang, Bern, &c , 2009, ISBN:9783039116706 
ABRAMOV-Van RIJK, Elena. Parlar cantando : The Practice of Reciting Verses in Italy from 1300 to 1600. Bern, &c : Peter Lang, (2009). First Edition. Pp (4),v-xviii,(2),1-395,(1). With a few illustrations in the text. 8vo, rust red illustrated paper-covered boards, black lettering to front cover & spine. "This book is a pioneering attempt to explore the fascinating and hardly known realm of reciting poetry in medieval and Renaissance Italy. The study of more than 50 treatises on both music and poetry, as well as other literary sources and documents from the period between 1300 and 1600, highlights above all the practice of parlar cantando ('speaking through singing' the term found in De li contrasti, a fourteenth-century treatise on poetry) as rooted in the art of reciting verses. Situating the practice of parlar cantando in the context of late medieval poetic delivery, the author sheds new light on the origin and history of late Renaissance opera style, which their inventors called stile recitativo, rappresentativo or, exactly, parlarcantando. The deepest roots of the Italian tradition of parlar cantando ar e thus revealed, and the cultural background of the birth of opera is reinterpreted and revisited from the much broader perspective of what appears tobe the most important Italian mode of music making between the age of Dant e and Petrarch and the beginning of Italian opera around 1600." - from the rear. Contents : Part I. Parlar Cantando - History, Practice and Theory. 1.Poetry Recitation in the Italian Trecento - 2. Different Types of Music fo r Delivering Poetry - 3.

Large 8vo, white cardcovers. "There is a healthy development in the human service professions these days. At community clinics, private practices, and universities around the country mental health professionals and service providers are working with increased awareness of the toxic effects of social inequities in the lives of people they aim to help. Quietly, by acting out their beliefs on justice and equality, clinicians are redressing the balance between professing our craftas clinicians and professing our humanity as citizens. Advancing Social Ju stice Through Clinical Practice is a comprehensive volume that bridges the gap between the psychosocial realities of clients and the dominant clinicalpractices. It offers an array of conceptual and practical innovations to a ddress both individual suffering and social inequities fueling this suffering. This is an empowering tool and a must read for mental health professionals. The accessible writing style also makes it ideal for teachers and students in the field. The book opens with a discussion of the historical, ethical, and experiential foundations for the development of social justice-based practice. Parts II and III present conceptual frameworks, strategies, and techniques used by social justice oriented practitioners. The final section discusses various ways to develop the skills and competencies required of mental health professionals aspiring to be both agents of individual and social transformation.

"The m enace of triumphant Nazism and fascism across Europe in the 1930s drove theleft into unity with liberals, in order to make common cause against the e xtremist right. Popular Front initiatives were a significant attempt to barthe way to further fascist victories. This collection of essays focuses sp ecifically on France and Spain as the only two countries where Popular Front coalitions won political power through the ballot box. From a comparativeperspective the volume gathers leading experts on the 1930s who travel bey ond the territory of orthodox political history. Taken together, their contributions provide the first multi-dimensional approach to the Front phenomenon.

In recognitio n of their outstanding contribution to Canadian history both the Oxbow and the Augustine Mound sites have been declared National Historic Sites by theHistoric Sites and Monuments Board of Canada. Joseph Augustine, the Red Ba nk resident who first recognized the cultural and historical value of thesesites, has been presented with New Brunswick's distinguished Award for Her itage. The Red Bank archeological research has produced evidence about how the Miramichi Micmac lived in the past. This richly illustrated book offersa glimpse of what life may have been like at Metepenagiag prior to the com ing of the Europeans.
