Dada And Surrealism For Beginners
Dada And Surrealism For Beginners
by Elsa Bethanis
Edition: Paperback
Price: £11.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent basic intro, 4 Feb. 2012
A wordy book. Most books in this series tend to have more pictures/cartoons, but this does not subtract from the good summary this book is. It is a short book, (could have been longer!) but it gets the spirit and importance of Dada'ism across. Buy it (:

5.0 out of 5 stars Good panorama, 4 Feb. 2012
This books shows how contemporary feminism has changed from seeking equality to being "post feminism" seeking to challange what it sees as a patriarchic culture and create a counter-feminine/feminist culture. It shows has feminism has entered all the main social theories of the past 30 years in its bid for an answer, but failed to find that answer. It is primarily focused on the acamedic debates and fails to look at the extremists in the feminist movement, nor early feminists, like Nancy Friday, who have become contemporary feminism most powerful critics. If you can pick up a second hand copy its worth a read. Well written and succintly put, although it tends to focus on "penius" issues for too long and ultiamtely fails to break the binary gender system into which feminism are locked into


Introducing Levi-Strauss and Structural Anthropology
Introducing Levi-Strauss and Structural Anthropology
by Boris Wiseman
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars A good concise introduction, 4 Feb. 2012
The author not only wrote his phd on Levi-Strauss, but also studied French and for the purposes of this book met with Levi-Strauss, thus it promises to be a good read. It lives up to its expectations. The arguments and explanations were well presented and clear. Further, Levi-Strauss was the missing link that took structural linguistics and allowed it to become "structuralism", a theory which was later applied to many areas (sociology, psychoanalysis, history, etc). An excellent introduction that will help you get your bearings and worth every mintue you read it. The weak point of the book is that its a little bit fragmented to begin, but then again, as the author says, structural antropology is like a chain, but its hard to beak into that chain, but once you do,all things begin to fall into place. The ending of the book was also a weak point, by the last 1970s and 1980s structuralism had it hey-day and it seems as though arguements from genetics, etc were being used to try and prop up a worn thesis, but nevertheless a fantastic read (:

4.0 out of 5 stars Jackboots on Whitehall, 4 Dec. 2011
An excellent film, well worth watching. The first few seconds makes one wonder, but within mintues its clear to see this is going to be an original film. While full of cliches, they are well applied and while this film wont make it into the big time, it will have a proud place among the growing genre of uniquely "British" animation films (Wallance and Gromet, etc), and the ending has a nice twist to it.

The directors also showed you dont need a massive budget to make an excellent film. This film never left me feeling bored, and may well leave you with a great smile on your face.

Upbeat and entertaining
