Der herkömmliche Qualitätsjournalismus in Deutschland vernachlässigt das Thema Mode und damit das weibliche Publikum. Das ist das Ergebnis dieses Bandes, der die Mode-Berichterstattung der "New York Times", der "Süddeutschen Zeitung" und der "Frankfurter Allgemeinen" analysiert hat. Die Autorin beläßt es nicht bei der Kritik. Vor allem im amerikanischen Journalismus hat sie entdeckt, wie das Thema Mode auch kompetent und in einer Weise behandelt werden kann, daß es Frauen interessiert. Die Autorin entwickelt Qualitätskriterien für die Modeberichterstattung, die sie an Beispiel-Artikeln verdeutlicht.

The Russian Revolution: A Very Short Introduction

Author: S. A. Smith

Publisher: OUP Oxford

ISBN: 0191578363

Category: History

Page: 192

View: 7947

This Very Short Introduction provides an analytical narrative of the main events and developments in Soviet Russia between 1917 and 1936. It examines the impact of the revolution on society as a whole—on different classes, ethnic groups, the army, men and women, youth. Its central concern is to understand how one structure of domination was replaced by another. The book registers the primacy of politics, but situates political developments firmly in the context of massive economic, social, and cultural change. Since the fall of Communism there has been much reflection on the significance of the Russian Revolution. The book rejects the currently influential, liberal interpretation of the revolution in favour of one that sees it as rooted in the contradictions of a backward society which sought modernization and enlightenment and ended in political tyranny. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

The Logic, Urgency, and Promise of Tackling Climate Change

Author: Nicholas Stern

Publisher: MIT Press

ISBN: 0262329212

Category: Science

Page: 448

The risks of climate change are potentially immense. The benefits of taking action are also clear: we can see that economic development, reduced emissions, and creative adaptation go hand in hand. A committed and strong low-carbon transition could trigger a new wave of economic and technological transformation and investment, a new era of global and sustainable prosperity. Why, then, are we waiting? In this book, Nicholas Stern explains why, notwithstanding the great attractions of a new path, it has been so difficult to tackle climate change effectively. He makes a compelling case for climate action now and sets out the forms that action should take.Stern argues that the risks and costs of climate change are worse than estimated in the landmark Stern Review in 2006 -- and far worse than implied by standard economic models. He reminds us that we have a choice. We can rely on past technologies, methods, and institutions -- or we can embrace change, innovation, and international collaboration. The first might bring us some short-term growth but would lead eventually to chaos, conflict, and destruction. The second could bring about better lives for all and growth that is sustainable over the long term, and help win the battle against worldwide poverty. The science warns of the dangers of neglect; the economics and technology show what we can do and the great benefits that will follow; an examination of the ethics points strongly to a moral imperative for action. Why are we waiting?
