Warring With Words. Scholars in many of the disciplines surrounding politics explicitly utilize either a narrative perspective or a metaphor perspective (though rarely the two in combination) to analyze issues -- theoretical and practical, domestic and international -- in the broad field of politics. Among the topics they have studied are: competing metaphors for the state or nation which have been coined over the centuries in diverse cultures; the frequency with which communal and international conflicts are generated, at least in part, by the clashing religious and historical narratives held by opposing groups; the cognitive short-cuts employing metaphor by which citizens make sense of politics; the need for political candidates to project a convincing self-narrative; the extent to which the metaphors used to formulate social issues determine the policies which will be developed to resolve them; the failure of narratives around the security of the nation to take account of the individual experiences of women and children. This volume is the first in which eminent scholars from disciplines as diverse as social psychology, anthropology, political theory, international relations, feminist political science, and media studies, have sought to integrate the narrative and the metaphor perspectives on politics. It will appeal to any scholar interested in the many ways in which narrative and metaphor function in combination as cognitive and rhetorical instruments in discourse around politics.

Readings In Medieval Texts. "By bringing together new reflections on canonical, and some non-canonical, writings from the earliest period of English literature to c.1500, Readings in Medieval Texts offers a unique insight into medieval literary production that provides students with essential tools for close reading and textual analysis. An introductory chapter highlights overarching trends in the composition of English literature in the Anglo-Saxon and later medieval periods, and provides an overview of the textual continuities and innovations. Individual chapters themselves give detailed information about context, authorship, date, and critical views on texts, before providing fascinating and thought-provoking examinations of crucial excerpts and themes." "This book will be invaluable for undergraduate and graduate students on all courses in Medieval Studies, particularly those focusing on understanding literature and its role in society."--BOOK JACKET.

Environmentalism. Located in a wide spectrum of current research and practice, from analyses of green ideology and imagery, enviromental law and policy, and local enviromental activism in the West to ethnographic studies of relationships between humans and their enviroments in hunter/gatherer societies, Enviromentalism: The View from Anthropology offers an original perspective on what is probably the best-known issue of the late twentieth century. It will be particularly useful to all social scientists interested in environmentalism and human ecology, to environmental policy-makers and to undergraduates, lecturers and researchers in social anthropology, development studies and sociology.

Warring With The Mind How To Make Your Mind Your Friend. Most Christians think their minds will automatically cooperate with them in their walk as Christians. However, this isn't true. The mind must be brought under subjection to the spirit of the living God for this to happen. The book you are holding will help you with this process. It lays out practical applications for using the Bible for the purpose of renewing the mind and making it your friend. We must, with our minds, love God and purpose to serve Him. We must also come to the place where we understand we have been self-serving. Only the teaching of the Bible will bring this to fruition in the mind of the believer. That is what MAKE YOUR MIND YOUR FRIEND is all about. The author used the principles laid out in this book with life-changing results both in ministry and his personal life. As you apply what is taught in this book to your life, you may begin to experience new levels of freedom in your mind. Some of the principles set forth you may or may not know, however it is all supported by Scriptures. As you take this journey, keep a God-centered mindset, and you will be blessed.
