Commemorative Events emphasise remembering. They are held on the anniversaries of significant past events, either annually or after significant time periods. Commemorative events provide fascinating insight into how societies see themselves, their heritage and their identity. These events however carry high propensity for controversy as memory and identity are highly subjective and other stakeholders hold different views of what should be commemorated and why. This is the first book to provide an in - depth critical examination of commemorative events, particularly what they mean to societies and how they are used by governments as well as impacts on other stakeholders. The book fully explores these issues by reviewing all the major types of commemorative events including, nationhood or independence, wars, battles, famous people and cultural milestones from varying geographical regions and stakeholder perspectives. By doing so the book furthers understanding of these types of events in society as well as furthering knowledge of social and political uses and impacts of events. This thought provoking volume will be valuable reading for students, researchers and academics interested in events.

ABOUT THE BOOK It was 1982. A then-twenty-seven-year-old James Cameron, recently fired by producer Roger Corman from the Rome-based set of schlocky B movie Piranha II: The Spawning, had been staying in an Italian pensione hotel, his pay for the film exhausted, stealing hard rolls from room-service trays for sustenance. Wracked by fever, one night he dreamed of a “chrome skeleton, emerging out of a fire,” cut in half, dragging itself after a woman. As he later told The New Yorker, he thought, “That was cool. I’d never seen that in a movie before.” Of course, the “chrome skeleton” was “the terminator,” and the woman was Sarah Connor--not a victim, as it turns out, but the first in what would become a long line of indelible action heroines Cameron would create. “The Terminator,” starring the director’s future wife Linda Hamilton as Connor and then-little-known strong-man actor named Arnold Schwarzenegger as the terminator, would prove one of the highest-grossing movies of 1984. Needless to say, Cameron would never again have to worry about where his next meal was coming from. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK Cameron married his fifth wife, actress Suzy Amis, who played Rose’s granddaughter Lizzy Calvert in Titanic , on the film’s set in 1997. They have three children together, but Terminator star Hamilton has reasonable doubts about the relationship. After all, when Cameron met Amis, he was still in a relationship with her. "The woman he can't get is always his dream girl," she told The Daily Mail. "Work and women go hand in hand for Jimbo, and I should know." In fact, four of Cameron’s five wives he met on movie sets, beginning with Gale Ann Hurd, the producer who believed enough in the script for The Terminator to finance it. He divorced his first wife, Sharon Williams (a waitress at Bob’s Big Boy, who Cameron married when he was still working blue-collar jobs in Orange County) to marry Hurd in 1985. His third wife, director Kathryn Bigelow, whom he married in 1989 and divorced two years later, remains a collaborator to this day. She still goes to Cameron to run scripts by him, including the one for The Hurt Locker. Their friendly professional rivalry manifested at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, when they were both up for Best Director--Cameron for Avatar, Bigelow for The Hurt Locker. Bigelow won...

The narrative surrounding the Titanic’s voyage, collision, and sinking in April 1912 seems tailor-made for film. With clear categories of gender, class, nationality, and religion, the dominating Titanic myth offers a wealth of motifs ripe for the silver screen-heroism, melodrama, love, despair, pleasure, pain, failure, triumph, memory and eternal guilt. This volume provides a detailed overview of Titanic films from 1912 to the present and analyzes the six major Titanic films, including the 1943 Nazi propaganda production, the 1953 Hollywood film, the 1958 British docudrama A Night to Remember, the 1979 TV production S.O.S. Titanic, the 1996 mini-series Titanic, and James Cameron's 1997 blockbuster. By showing how each film follows and builds on a pattern of fixed scenes, motifs and details defined as the “Titanic code,” this work yields telling insights into why this specific disaster has maintained such great relevance into the 21st century.

The Complete History of American Film Criticism is a chronicle of the lives and work of the most influential film critics of the past 100 years. From the first movie review in the New York Times in 1896 through the Silent Era, the pre- and postwar years, the Film Generation of the 1960s, the Golden Age of the 1970s, and into the 21st century, critics have educated generations of discriminating moviegoers on the differences between good films and bad. They call attention to great directors, cinematographers, production designers, screenwriters, and actors, and shed light on their artistic visions and storytelling sensibilities. People interested in what the great film critics had to say have usually been shortchanged as to their backgrounds, and just why they are qualified to sit in judgment. Using mini-biographies, placed within a chronological framework, The Complete History of American Film Criticism is the biography of a profession whose cultural impact has left an indelible mark on the 20th century’s most significant art form.

So what was the real story behind the sinking of RMS Titanic, one of two almost identical twin sister ships, in 1912?... "The Titanic didn't sink! The ship that went down in the North Atlantic in 1912 was the Olympic, the Titanic's sister ship... Both ships were owned by the White Star Line, which was part of J.P. Morgan's investment empire. The company had reason and opportunity to switch the identities of these luxury liners in order to commit massive insurance fraud. In this book, John Hamer theorizes that, instead of selling her for scrap and taking a huge loss, which might have bankrupted the Morgan venture, the decision was made to switch identities, destroy the Olympic (now posing as the Titanic), collect the insurance, and continue operating the Titanic profitably (now posing as the Olympic). You'll be amazed at how much compelling evidence there is to support this conclusion." G Edward Griffin, author and researcher.
