Review 'In this groundbreaking book, David Greatbatch and Timothy Clark extend our understanding of the management guru phenomenon by focusing on the live oratory and presentations of the most accomplished speakers. Visual communication technology has enhanced rather than reduced the importance of the live presentation, and the authors demonstrate how skilled guru speakers use language to enthuse their audiences; build their personal reputations; attract and sustain a mass following; and enhance their star status.' - Andrzej Huczynski, Senior Lecturer in Organizational Behaviour, University of Glasgow 'If you ever ask yourself why management gurus have such a strong impact on managers and the public with so little content, here is a book which provides a convincing answer.' - Alfred Kieser, Professor of Organizational Behavior, Mannheim University 'This excellent book offers a fascinating analysis of 'management speak' and a deft deconstruction of the tricks of the trade. Management gurus will never be quite the same again.' - John Heritage, University of California, Los Angeles About the Author Timothy Clark is Professor of Organisational Behaviour at Durham Business School, University of Durham. Prior to this he was Reader in Management at King's College London. His research interests are in management consultancy work, knowledge creation and diffusion, the nature of management fashion and gurus.

    Blind Rage: Letters to Helen Keller

    About the Author Georgina Kleege is Assistant Professor of English at the University of California, Berkeley, CA. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. from Part One: Consciousness on Trial February 3 Dear Helen Keller:      Allow me to introduce myself. I am a writer and part-time English professor. I am American, married, middle-aged, middle class. Like you, I am blind, though not deaf. But the most important thing you need to know about me, and the reason for my letter, is that I grew up hating you. Sorry to be so blunt, especially on such short acquaintance, but one of the advantages of writing to a dead person is there’s no need to stand on ceremony. And you should know the truth from the start. I hated you because you were always held up to me as a role model, and one who set such an impossibly high standard of cheerfulness in the face of adversity. “Why can’t you be more like Helen Keller?” people always said to me. Or that’s what it felt like whenever your name came up. “Count your blessings,” they told me. “Yes, you’re blind, but poor little Helen Keller was blind and deaf, and no one ever heard her complain.”      I am not alone in this. Many disabled people think you did our cause a lot of harm. Your life story inscribes the idea that disability is a personal tragedy to be overcome through an individual’s fortitude and pluck, rather than a set of cultural practices and assumptions, affecting many individuals that could be changed through collective action. Lately, for reasons I can’t entirely explain, my feelings about you have mellowed. It occurred to me that I should not hold you responsible for the use others made of your life story. This led me to dip into your autobiographical writing for the first time. Even more surprising, it led me to take a road trip to visit your childhood home, Ivy Green, in Tuscumbia, Alabama. And I thought you’d like to know what I found there.      I went with my husband Nick who is almost always up for a road trip. We took the house tour, which was standard fare for a local-hero museum. The guide was a woman pushing sixty, probably a volunteer, apparently reciting a script. She rattled off a number of facts about the town, the region, and antebellum architecture—all the predictable stuff.      Then, in one of the downstairs rooms, she pointed out a carpet on the floor that had been woven especially for you by I forget whom. She explained all this, then said, “Isn’t it lovely?” We murmured agreement. Then she said, “Too bad Helen Keller never saw it.” Her voice had a throaty throb as she delivered the line. I realized that the statement was supposed to catch us up short, jar us out of our complacency, remind us that you were deaf and blind. We were supposed to feel grateful and lucky, and intone a private prayer of gratitude: “I wake each day and thank the Lord I was not born Helen Keller.”      I should have expected nothing less. Where better to deliver the “Why can’t you be more like Helen Keller” message than in your childhood home? I should have steeled myself against it, but the resentment I feel about the message is so old and deep, it’s like a knee-jerk reflex. And on this occasion, I turned my resentment on the woman pointing out the carpet that poor little you never saw. I said, “But she could touch it.”      “What?” the guide said. “She what?” “She could touch it,” I said. “She had the sense of touch. One of the pleasures of a nice carpet is texture. She could feel it. She could walk on it barefoot. She had an imagination. Someone could describe it to her, and she could imagine it.”      I was talking like a crank. There’s a certain vibration that comes into a person’s voice when they’re going off the deep end, and I had it. I could feel the guide eyeing me askance. Was this how I was going to be? I was spoiling her spiel. I could feel the rest of the tour group—a van load of Baptists from Tennessee—looking away.      In any case, I quieted down and we moved on. I felt the guide was leery of me. As she pointed out the pump organ in the parlor, she paused briefly. I sensed she was supposed to say something about how you never heard its beautiful music, but since she had a crank in the crowd today, she dropped the line.      As we surveyed each room from the doorway, our guide was at pains to tell us which pieces of furniture actually belonged to your family, which were of the period, and which were merely reproductions. I’ve been on enough such house tours to know authenticity is always an issue. I wished she would let me walk around the rooms and touch something. This was not the most blind-friendly museum I’ve ever visited. At Louis Braille’s house in France, they let you put your hands on anything that’s not in a case. But perhaps fewer blind people visit your house.      As if to confirm this, our guide spent a lot of time talking about the photographs on the walls of the central hallway. Although I have some residual vision, I don’t see photographs well. Nick told me what I was looking at and read me the labels. There was one of you at about age seven, around the time Anne Sullivan, your teacher, came into your life. The guide said, “Wasn’t she a lovely child?” Then she shook her head. To be accurate, I don’t know if she shook her head or not. But her tone was that of someone shaking her head at the waste of it all. As if it would be less tragic if you had been homely.      I swallowed the urge to make this comment aloud. I am so used to this attitude, it hardly even registers anymore. “What a pretty girl,” people say. “Too bad she’s blind.” Apparently, beauty is wasted on us because we can’t see the reflection in the mirror, can’t see men’s heads turn when we enter a room. In this picture, you’re wearing a dress with a lot of ruffles, and your hair is an elaborate arrangement of ringlets. Do you look pretty? Nick told me that there’s a certain set to your lower lip, which makes it sound like your expression must be at odds with the prettiness of your dress and hair. He said you look posed and a bit uncertain about it. What could a photograph mean to you at that age? Later, you got the hang of it. In other photographs around the place, you’re always wearing a big smile and have your eyes aimed directly at the lens.      Next to this photo, there was one of Anne Sullivan—“Teacher,” as you always called her—taken at about the same time. The guide said, “Wasn’t she pretty?” with that same “such a pity” tone. Only the pity in her case is not that she was blind or deaf or anything else. The pity in her case is that she sacrificed her life to be your companion and helpmate, when she was pretty enough to get herself a man and have a normal life. Again, I could have argued otherwise. But I didn’t.      “Is she pretty?” I asked Nick. He told me she was intense looking, at once frail and fiery. I have no idea what that looks like, but the description fits what I know about her personality, so I took him at his word.      Up until this point, the house tour followed the predictable course. Yes, there was that crack about the carpet, but I admit most people probably wouldn’t have noticed it. But once we got to the dining room, things got strange. The guide called it the “famous dining room” where all your “famous battles took place.” She called you “a regular little hellion,” and narrated the struggle Teacher had getting you to eat with a fork and fold your napkin. As she was talking, I realized suddenly that she took The Miracle Worker as gospel. Outside the house, we found “the famous pump house,” a sort of fenced-in gazebo around the famous pump that is the central prop in the climatic scene of that play. But the ultimate weirdness was farther back, behind some outbuildings, where there was a permanent stage set and bleachers. There, in the summer, they stage nightly performances of The Miracle Worker.      Here is where I began to articulate something, Helen. Mind if I call you Helen? My problem with all this, Helen, is not that the play is inaccurate. The playwright William Gibson drew those scenes from the letters and journals Teacher kept during her first few weeks at Ivy Green. In fact, as the play depicts, one day at the end of March 1887, Teacher pumped water over one of your hands while spelling the word water into your other, and you suddenly, miraculously, discovered language. You dropped the mug you’d been holding, said “wa-wa,” a baby-talk word you’d retained from before the illness that left you deaf and blind. Then you went on to learn to communicate with the manual alphabet, to read, to write, to speak, and generally to triumph over adversity in all the laudable ways that made you famous.      Part of what disturbed me was not that this event was enshrined in your home, but that it is re-enacted there. Where else in the world are events from a person’s life ritualistically recreated in this way? Jerusalem springs to mind, The Way of the Cross. And while you may find the impulse to beatify, even deify you, flattering, it comes at such a high cost, Helen, particularly for the generations of disabled people who follow you.      But the main thing that disturbed me as I walked around the stage in your backyard was that The Miracle Worker is Teacher’s story, not yours. She was the one wh...

    Jose Marti: An Introduction (New Directions in Latino American Culture)




    Author: Oscar Montero
    Type: eBook
    Date Released: 2004
    Format: pdf
    Language: English
    Page Count: 160
    Isbn10 Code: 1403962863
    Isbn13 Code: 9781403962867


    Review "A welcomed introduction to the Cuban writer, easily adaptable, pedagogically speaking, to current academic and cultural debates."--Antonio Vera-León, State Universtiy of New York at Stony Brook"Oscar Montero makes Martí accessible and relevant to today's English-language reader in this engagingly written and authoritative introduction. The book places Martí in relation to American authors such as Emerson and Whitman, with whom he carried out a dialogue of which most Americans are not aware. Bi-lingual and bi-cultural in the deepest sense, Montero has written a book that should also be of the utmost interest to Latin Americans in this country and back home, as well as to students and scholars. I cannot think of a better introduction to the Cuban poet and patriot in any language."--Roberto González Echevarría, Sterling Professor of Hispanic and Comparative Literatures, Yale University."Without engaging in simplification or anachronism, Montero gives us a contemporary Martí, strikingly relevant to modern cultural debates in the United States and across the Americas. The book constitutes a powerful call for a generous rereading of Martí on issues of identity, race, gender, inter-American relations, exile and imperialism. For those interested in formulations of latinidad and eager to foster true dialogue and cultural exchange between the Americas, north and south, this book is more than just useful: it is indispensable."--Sylvia Molloy, Albert Schweitzer Professor in the Humanities, New York University"This is an extremely successful introduction to Martí. Through sharp, fresh analyses, Montero offers an extensive interpretation of Marti’s multi-faceted work, with special attention to his views of the racial, cultural and political dilemmas of the United States. One of the many attractive things about this book is Montero’s historically focused reflections on Martí´s understanding of Latinos. "--Arcadio Díaz Quiñones, Princeton University About the Author Oscar Montero is Professor of Latin American Literature at Lehman College and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

    Tyranny of the Minority: The Subconstituency Politics Theory of Representation




    Author: Benjamin Bishin
    Type: eBook
    Date Released: 2009
    Format: pdf
    Language: English
    Page Count: 216
    Isbn10 Code: 1592136583
    Isbn13 Code: 9781592136582


    Review “In Tyranny of the Minority, Bishin makes a valuable contribution to the literature by asking why minorities sometimes get their way over majority wishes. He makes a compelling case, presenting the conflicting implications of majoritarian representation models. This is a very well-written, clear and interesting book, and Bishin’s work invites vigorous future debate.  If you are interested in democratic theory, the logic of representation, and congress in general, you will want to read this book.”—Robin Kolodny, Temple University "The power of some minority groups to continually fend off majority interests through democratic representation has long been under-theorized. Bishin's fascinating and empirically sophisticated account of subconstituency politics is a welcome remedy, and it is absolutely vital for any understanding of American democracy." —Paul Frymer, Princeton University Book Description Why do politicians frequently heed the preferences of small groups of citizens over those of the general public? Breaking new theoretical ground, Benjamin Bishin explains how the desires of small groups, which he calls “subconstituencies,” often trump the preferences of much larger groups.   Tyranny of the Minority provides a “unified theory of representation,” based in social psychology and supported by extensive analyses of legislators’ voting behavior, that explains how citizens’ knowledge and participation affects candidates’ behavior in campaigns and legislators’ behavior in Congress. Demonstrating the wide applicability of the theory, the book traces politicians’ behavior on a wide range of issues, including the Cuban trade embargo, the extension of hate crimes legislation to protect gays and lesbians, the renewal of the assault weapons ban, abortion politics, and Congress’s battle to recognize the Armenian genocide. It offers a unique explanation of why and how special interests dominate American national politics.

    Shiva and the Primordial Tradition: From the Tantras to the Science of Dreams




    Author: Alain Dani?lou
    Type: eBook
    Date Released: 2006
    Format: pdf
    Language: English
    Page Count: 160
    Isbn10 Code: 1594771413
    Isbn13 Code: 9781594771415


    From Publishers Weekly Better known in Europe than in the U.S., the late French intellectual Daniélou (1907–1994) forged an eclectic career spanning several disciplines, though he is best known for his work on Indian music and culture. As a convert to the Hindu denomination known as Shaivism (which worships the god Shiva as the supreme being), Daniélou broke the rule of objectivity in his study of Hinduism, which has hurt his standing in academia. For the spiritual seeker, however, his work is immensely valuable in bridging the gap between polytheistic Hinduism and Western monotheism. One theme overarches: monotheism is the soul of error, both in the West, which has been "hardly interested in anything but philosophies infected by this germ," and in the East, where keepers of the "primordial" traditions have sought to ward it off. According to Daniélou, the healing power of Shaivism lies in opening oneself up to the divine spark in all things. More specifically, he shows how the disciplines of yoga and tantric sex, familiar to many in the West, derive from this ancient tradition and are doorways into a deeper and more fulfilling life. As is clear from this slight volume, Daniélou's Shaivic pluralism has much to say to our increasingly war-torn and materialistic culture and deserves a wide audience. (Jan.)

( Publishers Weekly, 10/30/2006 ) ". . . this book as a whole, like all other works by Daniélou, commends itself for the author’s original insights into various aspects of Hindu culture and spirituality."
