Space has emerged in recent years as a radical category in a range of related disciplines across the humanities. Of the many possible applications of this new interest, some of the most exciting and challenging have addressed the issue of domestic architecture and its function as a space for both the dramatisation and the negotiation of a cluster of highly salient issues concerning, amongst other things, belonging and exclusion, fear and desire, identity and difference.Our House is a cross-disciplinary collection of essays taking as its focus both the prospect and the possibility of 'the house'. This latter term is taken in its broadest possible resonance, encompassing everything from the great houses so beloved of nineteenth-century English novelists to the caravans and mobile homes of the latterday travelling community, and all points in between. The essays are written by a combination of established and emerging scholars, working in a variety of scholarly disciplines, including literary criticism, sociology, cultural studies, history, popular music, and architecture. No specific school or theory predominates, although the work of two key figures – Gaston Bachelard and Martin Heidegger – is engaged throughout. This collection engages with a number of key issues raised by the increasingly troubled relationship between the cultural (built) and natural environments in the contemporary world.

Between 1945 and 1965, the catastrophe of war—and the social and political changes it brought in its wake—had a major impact on the construction of the Soviet masculine ideal. Drawing upon a wide range of visual material, The Fate of the New Man traces the dramatic changes in the representation of the Soviet man in the postwar period. It focuses on the two identities that came to dominate such depictions in the two decades after the end of the war: the Soviet man's previous role as a soldier and his new role in the home once the war was over. In this compelling study, Claire McCallum focuses on the reconceptualization of military heroism after the war, the representation of contentious subjects such as the war-damaged body and bereavement, and postwar changes to the depiction of the Soviet man as father. McCallum shows that it was the Second World War, rather than the process of de-Stalinization, that had the greatest impact on the masculine ideal, proving that even under the constraints of Socialist Realism, the physical and emotional devastation caused by the war was too great to go unacknowledged. The Fate of the New Man makes an important contribution to Soviet masculinity studies. McCallum's research also contributes to broader debates surrounding the impact of Stalin's death on Soviet society and on the nature of the subsequent Thaw, as well as to those concerning the relationship between Soviet culture and the realities of Soviet life. This fascinating study will appeal to scholars and students of Soviet history, masculinity studies, and visual culture studies.

Do It Yourself Medicine: A Repair Manual Fun thing: Get the MOBILE APP at http: //bwell.mobi/grove I recently put together a Mobile Application for all the new people who are mobile...Digital is not a tree... By Sari Grove, Joseph Grove (Authored by), Justin Wood (Series edited by) Each body part contains 2 elements... A Plus Element & a Minus Element... These 2 elements must live in balance as opposites... Imbalance is ill health... Balance is good health... Learn how to Balance your health... Learn where to find those elements from the Periodic Table of Elements, in the REAL world... See how medical theories are formed... Understand what the problem is... Figure out how to repair your own problem... Figure out that maybe your problem is not a problem, but a solution... Open up your mind to some new choices, some new decisions, some new information... Be able to speak intelligently about your own Health... The cover is Matte...It all looks stunning... As a paperback it is handy as a gift for yourself, for days when you aren't in front of a computer, like when you go to the doctor's clinic... You can make notes inside the book too, there is room, & this is encouraged... Self-efficacy is an excellent prognosticator for health... Do it Yourself Medicine: A Repair Manual does not mean you should ignore outside help... It just means that maybe something like a quick oil change or a tire inflate or a battery charge, might be done by you instead of a very expensive unavailable health care practitioner... If you are at home & not feeling well & need to ask a question, check our book, but also know that the Ask a Doctor function online, the JustAnswer people, have specialists available to help with your questions... There's a walk in clinic at the Maple leaf Gardens Loblaws store, inside the giant grocery space in the far corner upstairs...A new woman doctor means women get to say stuff they were afraid to say to a man doctor...This is an improvement...For Toronto...They are open on a Sunday... There is a neurology factor in this book... I have drawn the pictures to show how that works... Bigger versions of the pictures can be seen online as well... The best part about the really simple neurology information is how the brain part connects to the body part connects to the 2 opposing elements inside the body part... Also the specific brain part function is shown, not a huge list of things, but the prime function... So instead of a whole long list of possibilities, you get something real to hang on to... There is also a brilliant first stab at identifying which actual side of the brain controls or is fed by what element... For example, the Frontal lobe Left side is a Lead Plomb, element side... Removal of left frontal lobe, causes a lean toward the right frontal lobe, the Zinc element side... This would result in bipolar or Zinc excess symptoms... Phineas Gage, the famous true story, is mentioned, & was used to get to this place... I have added the LUNG LYMPH NODE connection to the Parietal Lobe, as well how the LEFT side of the Parietal lobe is the ALUMINUM PLUS element, & the right side hemisphere of the Parietal Lobe is the Titanium element... So if you have removed the left side hemisphere Parietal, you are short on Aluminum long on Titanium, & you will have right sided problems(due to the cross switch nature of the sidedness of the brain)... So a left hemi parietal removal robs aluminum, & also robs NUMBERS knowledge! Feel free to find us on Social networks & say hello... Sari Grove p.s. You probably should read "Grove Body Part Chart: A Medical Arts Innovation" first before reading Do It Yourself medicine: A Repair Manual... This second book assumes you understand the basics of the theory, & progresses to more complex problems. Note for winter: Safflower- eat a tablespoon out of the box, clears up a runny nose, cold & your liver quickly! Saffron too! corrected page 50 (Sunday April 5, 20
