On February 28, 2008, to great international surprise, the British Ministry of Defense released a statement acknowledging that Prince Harry, son of the late Princess Diana and third in line to the British throne, had secretly been deployed to Afghanistan. Subsequent reports revealed that the prince had killed up to thirty Taliban insurgents in directing at least three air strikes, and that he had helped Gurkha troops repel a ground attack of Taliban insurgents using a machine gun. On February 29, Prince Harry was withdrawn from the country with distinction via a covert SAS deployment. This is the amazing story of the first British royal to serve his country in 25 years and his 10 heroic weeks of combat.

Mass communication is used by governments to support their war efforts while media images are created or manipulated to inform, persuade or guide the consumers of those images. But this book looks beyond the obvious. The contributors examine historical and contemporary examples that reflect the role of the media or mass communication or both during wartime. The essays highlight the centrality of communication to the perpetuation and to the resolution of war, suggesting that the symbiotic relationship between communication and war is as important to understand as war itself.

„Královská kniha roku. Pokud už jste četli příběh viděný očima královské rodiny, teď si přečtete, jak to bylo doopravdy“ Synové prince Charlese a princezny Diany se stali první generací britské královské rodiny, kterou od narození na každém krůčku sledovala média. Nejen poddaní Alžběty II., ale i čtenáři a diváci po celém světě tak mají pocit, že o princích Williamovi a Harrym vědí úplně všechno... Odborník na královskou rodinu a autor mnoha úspěšných knižních titulů Robert Lacey svou zasvěcenou sondou do rozkolu mezi oběma bratry dokáže všechny vyvést z omylu. Za důvody roztržky mezi sourozenci, kteří si bývali tak blízcí, se vrací do doby jejich dětství a dospívání. Rozebírá důsledky toho, jak na chlapce působilo vědomí, že jeden z nich bude králem, kdežto druhý jen věčným „náhradníkem“. Laceyho důkladný pohled na komplikované vztahy v královské rodině překlenuje období od počátku osmdesátých let až po současnost, včetně kontroverzního interview Harryho a Meghan s moderátorkou Oprah Winfreyovou nebo pohřbu prince Philipa. ROBERT LACEY (1944) je známým britským historikem a životopiscem. V posledních letech přispěl Lacey coby historický konzultant ke vzniku oceňovaného seriálu služby Netflix The Crown / Koruna. Napsal též Oficiálního průvodce seriálem Koruna, svazky 1-2. Lacey více než čtyřicet let píše o královně Alžbětě II. a jejím výjimečném životě, její dlouhé vládě i o celé královské rodině. Jeho první biografie královny Majesty (Veličenstvo) je průlomovou prací o britské monarchii. O tomto tématu Lacey přednáší po celém světě a pravidelně se k němu vyjadřuje v televizi.

In the past two decades, Othello has tried out for the basketball team, Macbeth has taken over a fast food joint and King Lear has moved to an Iowa farm--Shakespeare is everywhere in popular culture. This collection of essays addresses the use of Shakespearean narratives, themes, imagery and characterizations in non-Shakespearian cinema. The essays explore how Shakespeare and his work are manipulated within the popular media and explore topics such as racism, jealousy, misogyny and nationality. The submissions concentrate on film and television programs that are adaptations of Shakespearean plays, including My Own Private Idaho, CSI-Miami, A Thousand Acres, Prospero's Books, O, 10 Things I Hate About You, Withnail and I, Get Over It, and The West Wing. Each chapter includes notes and a list of works cited. A full bibliography completes the work; it is divided into bibliographies and filmographies, general studies and essays, derivatives based on a single play, derivatives based on several, and derivatives based on Shakespeare as a character.

With kaleidoscopic, trenchant, path-breaking insights, Elizabeth D. Samet has produced the most ambitious edition of Ulysses Grant’s Memoirs yet published. One hundred and thirty-three years after its 1885 publication by Mark Twain, Elizabeth Samet has annotated this lavish edition of Grant’s landmark memoir, and expands the Civil War backdrop against which this monumental American life is typically read. No previous edition combines such a sweep of historical and cultural contexts with the literary authority that Samet, an English professor obsessed with Grant for decades, brings to the table. Whether exploring novels Grant read at West Point or presenting majestic images culled from archives, Samet curates a richly annotated, highly collectible edition that will fascinate Civil War buffs. The edition also breaks new ground in its attack on the “Lost Cause” revisionism that still distorts our national conversation about the legacy of the Civil War. Never has Grant’s transformation from tanner’s son to military leader been more insightfully and passionately explained than in this timely edition, appearing on the 150th anniversary of Grant’s 1868 presidential election.

Zen War Stories

  • Pages : 288
  • Category : History

Following the critically acclaimed Zen at War (1997), Brian Victoria explores the intimate relationship between Japanese institutional Buddhism and militarism during the Second World War. Victoria reveals for the first time, through examination of the wartime writings of the Japanese military itself, that the Zen school's view of life and death was deliberately incorporated into the military's programme of 'spiritual education' in order to develop a fanatical military spirit in both soldiers and civilians. Furthermore, that D. T. Suzuki, the most famous exponent of Zen in the West, is shown to have been a wartime proponent of this Zen-inspired viewpoint which enabled Japanese soldiers to leave for the battlefield already resigned to death. Victoria takes us onto the naval battlefield in the company of warrior-monk and Rinzai Zen Master Nakajima Genjô. We view the war in China through the eyes of a Buddhist military chaplain. The book also examines the relationship to Buddhism of Japan's seven Class-A war criminals who were hung by the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal in 1948. A highly controversial study, this book will be of interest, first and foremost, to students of Zen as well as all those studying the history of this period, not to mention anyone concerned with the perennial question of the 'proper' relationship between religion and the state.

Revealing Britain’s Systemic Racism

Book of Revealing Britain’s Systemic Racism
  • Author : Kimberley Ducey,Joe R. Feagin
  • Publisher : Routledge
  • Isbn : : 1000380106
  • Pages : 266
  • Category : Social Science

Revealing Britain’s Systemic Racism applies an existing scholarly paradigm (systemic racism and the white racial frame) to assess the implications of Markle’s entry and place in the British royal family, including an analysis that bears on visual and material culture. The white racial frame, as it manifests in the UK, represents an important lens through which to map and examine contemporary racism and related inequities. By questioning the long-held, but largely anecdotal, beliefs about racial progressiveness in the UK, the authors provide an original counter-narrative about how Markle’s experiences as a biracial member of the royal family can help illumine contemporary forms of racism in Britain. Revealing Britain’s Systemic Racism identifies and documents the plethora of ways systemic racism continues to shape ecological spaces in the UK. Kimberley Ducey and Joe R. Feagin challenge romanticized notions of racial inclusivity by applying Feagin’s long-established work, aiming to make a unique and significant contribution to literature in sociology and in various other disciplines.
