For centuries we've believed that work was where you learned discipline, initiative, honesty, self-reliance--in a word, character. A job was also, and not incidentally, the source of your income: if you didn't work, you didn't eat, or else you were stealing from someone. If only you worked hard, you could earn your way and maybe even make something of yourself. In recent decades, through everyday experience, these beliefs have proven spectacularly false. In this book, James Livingston explains how and why Americans still cling to work as a solution rather than a problem--why it is that both liberals and conservatives announce that "full employment" is their goal when job creation is no longer a feasible solution for any problem, moral or economic. The result is a witty, stirring denunciation of the ways we think about why we labor, exhorting us to imagine a new way of finding meaning, character, and sustenance beyond our workaday world--and showing us that we can afford to leave that world behind.

Austria, the multicultural crossroad of the European continent, has been the genesis of many artistic concepts. Just as late 19th and early 20th century Austria gave influential modernism to the world in the fields of medicine, urban planning, architecture, design, literature, music, and theater, so its film industry created a significant national cinema that seeded talents and concepts internationally. Nevertheless, the value of Austrian cinema to international film has been long obscured. Austria's important bond with American film is also underappreciated because of the lack of accessible English language scholarship on the early careers of Austro-Hollywood artists and on influential developments in Austrian film history. This first comprehensive English survey of Austrian film introduces more than a century of cinema, following the development of the industry chronologically through the nation's various transformations since 1895. Important industry movements, genres and films are highlighted with sociopolitical, cultural and aesthetic details. An analysis of the economic trends that have influenced Austrian film is also provided. The survey considers the directors, actors, producers, writers, cinematographers, editors, composers and other film artists who have been essential to the development and influence of Austrian cinema. The closing chapter anticipates new faces of the Austrian film industry in the 21st century.

"Identity is analysed by showing how European nations define sport in their own way; Germany including naturalism, Spain - bullfighting, England - cricket and croquet, and so on. The editors' approach refuses to confine 'sport' or 'gymnastics' to a single, culture-specific definition. The globalisation of sport is acknowledged to be constantly giving sport new meanings and activities." "The contributors are eleven sports historians whose intention is both to provide an insight into the unique development of sport in European society and to reveal the related historical processes that have shaped European sport over the last two hundred years."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Although sport historians and sociologists have researched the worldwide economic and political impact of sport, there is a vital part of the history of sport that`s never been completely told. . .until now! >The Story of Worker Sport> is the first book published in English to cover, in-depth, the history of the worker sport movement.Worker sport became prominent during the years between WWI and WWII, fostered by the development of communism and socialism. In >The Story of Worker Sport,> sport and labor history experts from 10 countries discuss the development, fall, and economic effects of worker sport in their own countries. Here are some of the worker countries:--Germany. Dominated by both worker and bourgeouis Turner movements, which believed in creating well-prepared, well-rounded athletes until outlawed by Hitler before WWII.-France. Worker isolation and fragmentation kept worker sport from the success of other economically-advanced countries.-The former Soviet Union. Early experiments in creating a new proletarian sports system and the involvement of the Communist International and Red Sport International organizations affected attitudes of workers to sport and politics between the world wars.-Finland. The creation of and conflict between the Finnish Gymnastics and Sports Federation (SVUL) and the Finnish Worker Sport Federation (TUL) from 1906 until today.-Austria. Movement based on the cultural concept of Austro-Marxism, which is unique in all worker sport. After WWII, the organization was used to integrate workers into existing society rather than to further political aims and it remains today the strongest organization of the Austrian labor movement.-Israel. Hapoel, formed in 1926, is the largest and strongest sport organization in Israel and the only worker sport organization actually controlling its country`s sport despite a continuing debate over the organization`s ideals.Because these and other worker sport movements affected most economically-developed countries, the book also briefly surveys 18 other countries and their experiences with worker sport. It also includes over 100 photos and facsimilies of original documents to help illustrate the worker sport movement`s vital role in the history of sport.
