This monograph discusses that paradox, focusing on the roles of the suffering Earth and the ancient audiences.Book Details

This book is about experience - the profound human experience of re-negotiating the physical and emotional balance between sickness and health, when that balance is tipped by the onset of disease and the experience overwhelms all others. It is not about cancer as a disease, or medical interventions and treatments. It is about what life feels like when all sense of normality, and all the hope for the future that accompanies good health, are suddenly buried by suffering that affects both the individual and the people who care for and about her.
The book is illustrated with original artwork by Jac Saorsa, taken from the Drawing Women’s Cancer project.Book Details
What are martial arts, and how do they relate to culture and society? This book analyses issues and debates from scholarly, practitioner and popular cultural discussions and treatments of martial arts, and argues that they are dynamic and variable, regularly changing their meanings and values according to context. The author proposes that deconstructing martial arts is an invaluable approach to both the scholarly study of martial arts in culture and society and also to wider understandings of martial arts. Relating them to the core questions of media and cultural studies around identity, value, orientalism and embodiment, the book examines deconstruction as a rewarding method of cultural studies.Book Details
