The jo appears to be the lowliest of all tools--an ordinary length of wood--yet it’s an exceptional weapon. While no one speaks of famous jo makers the way they do of sword smiths, the jo is capable of snapping the best swords ever forged. Packed with information on correct grips, stances, postures and etiquette, the book also outlines striking methods, combination techniques, and a 31-count formal solo exercise called tandoku renshu, making it the ultimate resource for those who appreciate Japan’s most subtle weapon.

Jo B. Paoletti's journey through the history of children's clothing began when she posed the question, "When did we start dressing girls in pink and boys in blue?" To uncover the answer, she looks at advertising, catalogs, dolls, baby books, mommy blogs and discussion forums, and other popular media to examine the surprising shifts in attitudes toward color as a mark of gender in American children's clothing. She chronicles the decline of the white dress for both boys and girls, the introduction of rompers in the early 20th century, the gendering of pink and blue, the resurgence of unisex fashions, and the origins of today's highly gender-specific baby and toddler clothing.

Since Comte, social scientists have tended to assume that mod苟rnization, along with a trièµ´mphant scientific rationality, has destroyed the legitimacy of religion as a social reality. However, this crisis of legit虹macy has never been examined in a setting where religious real虹ty is affirmed. This book fills that gap, exploring the meaning of religious reality in the lives of a group of Catholic Charismatics to discover how belief is created, developed, and maintained. Charismatics, or Neo-Pentecostals, tend to be white, relaè² ively affluent, well educated, and believe that they possess certain gifts including the power of healing, prophesy, discernè¡«ent of evil spirits, and speak虹ng in tongues. In describing and analyzing this religious minority, the author provides a basis for reevaluating sociological as貞umptions about religion and modernity. She asks: to what exè² ent can religion define the so苞ial world? Are religious values necessarily irrelevant to most institutional contexts? Is re衍igious reality only persuasive in the context of family and priè¡«ary group relations? What are the tensions between religious realities and other beliefs? Her answers have implications for all ways of making sense of the world, including common sense or science. Neitz situates the Charismatic Renewal in a broader social and historical context. She examines the antecedents of Neo-Pentecostalism in American culture and compares this movement with the secular, self-awareness movement. In so doing she shows what is unique about the Charismatics, and what they share with religious prede苞essors and members of contem計orary secular movements.

This work gives an 'inside' view of Chinese theatre and the actor in performance for the first time. It challenges western theatre artists such as Brecht, Grotowski, Barba and Schechner, who have extracted from Chinese theatre elements which might enrich their own theatres. It is based on personal observations of and dialogue with Chinese actors, experiences which were impossible before 1980. Riley's study is well illustrated with photographs and diagrams and is accessible to anyone interested in theatre, even those with no knowledge of Chinese or Chinese theatre.

Collective Memory examines contemporary transmission of memories in France of the Algerian war of independence (1954–62). The work emphasizes the lack of transmission of memories of this war through a detailed case study of three crucial vectors of memory: school history, the media, and the family; and argues that lack of transmission of memories is feeding into contemporary racism in France.
