ACADEMIC CATALOGUE – NEW BOOKS JULY TO DECEMBER 2012


ii

Welcome to Bloomsbury Academic

Bloomsbury is a leading international academic publisher, unconstrained by the conflicting interests of

conglomerate ownership or a single academic institution. We are based in London, Berlin, New York, and Sydney.

Within Bloomsbury Academic, we publish under a number of prestigious and historic imprint names. These

include Methuen Drama, T&T Clark, The Arden Shakespeare, Berg, and Bristol Classical Press. All new

Continuum titles, a list we purchased in July 2011, are now published under the Bloomsbury name. These books

are noted as Continuum in the catalogue for identification purposes.

We enjoy the business of publishing, and thrive on working with authors and publishing partners to devise a

successful approach for each title we publish. Our expertise and experience allow us to make quick decisions,

and, when needed, to bring important ideas rapidly to a global readership. New technology provides many

new paths to market, and Bloomsbury is actively engaged in digital distribution, in a way which maximises

dissemination and protects rights holders.

Publishing in Print and Digital

Bloomsbury Academic now publishes around 1,100 titles each year, with a particularly big presence in the

Humanities and Social Sciences. Our backlist comprises some 20,000 titles. An increasingly important part

of our programme comes from digital services.

Our output includes journals, digital services, textbooks, supplementary course books, research monographs,

reference works and professional books. Academic proposals are peer-reviewed before we commit to

publication, to help ensure quality and to support the career progression of our authors.

Our Authors

We publish many world-leading writers, Nobel laureates and researchers in their fields, and actively seek out

the emerging generation. These include Karl Barth, Joseph Ratzinger, Rowan Williams, George Bernard Shaw,

Jonathan Sacks, Slavoj Žižek, Theodor Adorno, Martin Heidegger, Alain Badiou, Bertolt Brecht, Arthur Miller,

Michael Frayn, Paulo Freire, M A K Halliday, Noel Coward, Willy Russell, Winston Churchill, Jean Anouilh, Edward

Bond, Dario Fo, Tennessee Williams and Wole Soyinka.

I hope you enjoy reading our latest seasonal catalogue.

A History of Pergamum

Beyond Hellenistic Kingship

Richard Evans

• No competing

volumes in

English focus on

Pergamum

• Pergamum was

unchallenged

as political and

cultural centre

• Appeal for both

Romanists and Hellenists

Pergamum emerged from the period of

instability that followed Alexander the

Great’s death. It was one of the greatest

states in the eastern Mediterranean, later

incorporated into the Roman Empire and

eventually becoming Rome’s wealthiest

province. Its ruling dynasty - the Attalids

- were responsible for the remarkable

embellishment of their capital.

Eunuchs in the Roman Empire

As the Roman

empire expanded

eastwards, Rome encountered foreign

powers which used eunuchs in the roles

of court attendants, religious figures

the use of eunuchs in Roman society

increased with the emergence of the

emperors. Shaun Tougher examines

Paris: The ‘New Rome’

Diana Rowell

• New insights into

exploitation of

antiquity

Classical Rome was central to

Napoleon’s ambitious visions for the

transformation of Paris into a metropolis

of unprecedented magnitude. Exploring

the interrelationship between antiquity,

the display of power and the reinvention

of Paris, this volume evaluates how the

Roman world influenced Napoleonic

Paris, and how Napoleon promoted his

authority by appropriating antique Rome’s

triumphal architecture and its associated

symbolism to relocate ‘Rome’ in his own

Digital Design

A Critical Introduction

Dean Bruton and Antony Radford

• Provides the first critical overview of

how to design with digital media

• Very highly illustrated with over 200

images in colour and black and white

Digital Design: A Critical Introduction

provides a much-needed new perspective

on designing with digital media. Linking

ideas from media theory, generative design

and creativity with examples from nature,

art, architecture, industrial design, websites, animation and

games, it addresses fundamental questions about creative design

with digital media. Digital Design argues that the recognition

and understanding of the interplay of the two apparently

opposing concepts of rules and contingency supports original

thinking, creativity and innovation.

The False Promise of

Global Learning

Why Education Needs Boundaries

Alex Standish

• Intelligent and brilliantly argued attack

on ‘globalized’ curriculum reform

• Demonstrates how current reforms are

undermining the authority and

effectiveness of teachers

• Will help readers identify which

policies are harmful to students and

which are helpful

The False Promise of Global Learning

demonstrates forcefully that the nature

and purpose of education has become

confused with social, economic, political,

and therapeutic aims, and that control

over the curriculum has been taken away

from teachers and communities. This is a

hard-hitting and persuasive work that will

resonate with all educators who have a

stake in how – and why – we educate our

children.

aesthetic event of education. Extending

beyond the pedagogy of art or art

appreciation, Tyson E. Lewis takes a much

broader view of aesthetics and argues

that teaching and learning are themselves

aesthetic performances. The result is

an extension and problematization of

Ranciere’s project as well as a new

appreciation for the largely ignored

aesthetic dimension of Freire’s pedagogy

of the oppressed.

contemporary

fetish style

within the longer

history of the

phenomenon

• Offers a cross

cultural

perspective on

fetish fashion

for students and scholars of fashion

Fetish Style traces the history, forms

and tendencies of sub-cultural fashions

that are popular in both mainstream and

fashion cultures. Presenting the world

of subcultural fetish clothing design for

its richness and beauty, the book also

explores notions of fetish as subversive

or repressive through an examination of

the ways in which fashion, itself based on

the fetishization of clothing and clothing

attitudes, in fact calls forth fetishistic

behaviour in all people of all ages and

cultures.

With Exile in Guyville, Phair spoke for all the girls who loved

indie rock but felt deeply unwelcome there. Like all great works

of musical art, Exile was a harbinger of the shape of things to

come: Phair may have undermined the male ago, but she also

unleashed a new female one. For the sake of all the women

artists who have benefited from her work – on behalf of Sleater

Kinney, MIA and Miley Cyrus - it’s high time we go back to

Guyville.

Noise Matters

Towards an Ontology of Noise

Greg Hainge

• Looks at noise from a variety of new and

controversial perspectives

• Pushes the field of Sound Studies in new

and interesting directions

• Examines noise from a wide range of

angles, including film, literature, and

some of the twentieth century’s most infamous noisemongers

to suggest that they’re not that noisy after all; and finds true

noise in some surprising places. The result is a thrilling and

Edward the Confessor’s political and

spiritual capital. A thousand years later, Westminster remains the
