Описание: China's decade-long Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution shook the politics of China and the world between 1966 and 1976. Even as we approach the Cultural Revolution's fiftieth anniversary, the movement remains so contentious that the Chinese Communist Party still will not allow open discussion of its origins, development, and conclusion. In this book, Richard Curt Kraus helps the non-specialist reader make some sense out of a complex, often obscure, and still controversial movement.

Описание: Among the conflicts during the Cultural Revolution in Tibet, a famous one took place in 1969 in Nyemo, a county in Lhasa. In this incident, hundreds of villagers formed a mob led by a young nun killed officials, and People`s Liberation Army troops. This book revists this incident that is said to be the epitome of Tibetan resistance against China.
Описание: The violence of Mao’s China is well known, but its extreme form is not. In 1967 and 1968, during the Cultural Revolution, collective killings were widespread in rural China in the form of public execution. Victims included women, children, and the elderly. This book is the first to systematically document and analyze these atrocities, drawing data from local archives, government documents, and interviews with survivors in two southern provinces. This book extracts from the Chinese case lessons that challenge the prevailing models of genocide and mass killings and contributes to the historiography of the Cultural Revolution, in which scholarship has mainly focused on events in urban areas.

Описание: In the long eighteenth century, new consumer aspirations combined with a new industrious behavior to fundamentally alter the material cultures of northwest Europe and North America. This ‘industrious revolution’ is the context in which the economic acceleration associated with the Industrial Revolution took shape. This study explores the intellectual understanding of the new importance of consumer goods as well as the actual consumer behavior of households of all income levels. De Vries examines how the activation and evolution of consumer demand shaped the course of economic development, situating consumer behavior in the context of the household economy. He considers the changing consumption goals of households from the seventeenth century to the present and analyzes how household decisions have mediated between macro-level economic growth and actual human betterment. Ultimately, de Vries’ research reveals the strengths and weaknesses of existing consumer theory, suggesting revisions that add historical realism to economic abstractions.

Описание: Rowntree and the Marketing Revolution, 1862–1969 is a major study in the history of marketing in economic development, in addition to being a history of a well-known international company. Marketing history remains a neglected field of study, yet Rowntree’s commercial success has been the direct result of applied marketing methods and major advances in product development, branding and advertising. It is surprising that marketing and mass consumption has been so neglected; yet Rowntree was a marketing pioneer. The company had in addition a prominent role in questioning managerial organization, business culture, industrial relations, restrictive practices, and multinational business. This book offers a comprehensive account of a company and its industry, but pursues themes and seeks to answer areas of debate, illuminating the ways in which marketing contributed to the growth of an enterprise.

Описание: The industrial revolution and the creation of the modern (national) state are two of the main historical processes to have occurred during the nineteenth century. This book demonstrates that industrial transformation was very much connected to state and military interests and was bolstered by elite groups who served such interests.
Описание: In a work as much about the present as the past, Gregory identifies the unintended consequences of the Reformation for the modern condition: a hyperpluralism of beliefs, intellectual disagreements that splinter into fractals of specialized discourse, the absence of a substantive common good, and the triumph of capitalism`s driver, consumerism.
