May 68 in French Fiction and Film

Rethinking Society, Rethinking Representation

May 1968 and its aftermath constitute a watershed in contemporary French history. France was brought to a standstill as over 10 million went on strike, factories and campuses were occupied, and pitched battles were fought on the streets of Paris between riot police and students. Its roots were many and varied, its consequences equally diverse, but the slogans and images of May - utopia and spectacle, pure politics and pure play - gained mythic status as founding texts of a new cultural politics. This is the first book-length study of May 68 in French fiction and film. Eight texts, including works by Beauvoir, Cardinal, Godard, and Kristeva, are chosen to present major features of May and its aftermath, and to highlight the importance of language, image, and spectacle in the cultural and intellectual history of an extraordinary event.

Corporate Governance and Chairmanship

A Personal View

Corporate governance has become a major issue in business over the last decade. Adrian Cadbury has played a central role in developing policies, good practice, and our understanding of the complex issues involved. In 1992 he chaired the committee, sponsored by the Bank of England, whose Report on the Financial Aspects of Corporate Governance (commonly known as the 'Cadbury Report') put issues of corporate governance on the map. Ten years on, Cadbury now reflects on issues of corporategovernance and chairmanship drawing on his own business and policy-making experience. In the book, he discusses and explains the central issuse of corporate governance; provides practical advice to chairmen and directors on their roles and responsibilities; and surveys the major codes of practice that have been developed in the last decade. He also considers the implications of the current review of company law and speculates on the implications of electronic developments for shareholders' voice and voting, the extent of a company's social responsibility, and the changing relationship between boards, managers, and investors. This book is both an informed commentary and a practical guide. Cadbury's insights will prove essential reading for anybody taking on senior roles in companies and other public organizations, and will provide well-grounded analysis for management academics, students, and advisers.

Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God

A Casebook

The rediscovery of Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God, first published in 1937 but subsequently out-of-print for decades, marks one of the most dramatic chapters in African-American literature and Women's Studies. Its popularity owes much to the lyricism of the prose, the pitch-perfect rendition of black vernacular English, and the memorable characters--most notably, Janie Crawford. Collecting the most widely cited and influential essays published on Hurston's classic novel over the last quarter century, this Casebook presents contesting viewpoints by Hazel Carby, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Barbara Johnson, Carla Kaplan, Daphne Lamothe, Mary Helen Washington, and Sherley Anne Williams. The volume also includes a statement Hurston submitted to a reference book on twentieth-century authors in 1942. As it records the major debates the novel has sparked on issues of language and identity, feminism and racial politics, A Casebook charts new directions for future critics and affirms the classic status of the novel.
