  1. Cromwell's head

    Fitzgibbons, Jonathan
    Oliver Cromwell's magnificent funeral in 1658 was a regal affair, witnessed by thousands and drawing on all the trappings of state. Yet less than three years later his corpse was removed from Westminster Abbey and 'executed' at Tyburn. This gruesome ceremony launched Cromwell's head on three centuries of extraordinary adventures, from a traitor's pole by Westminster Hall to an exhibition in London's Bond Street, the probings of 'cranial detectives' to the peace of a Cambridge college. "Cromwell's Head" tells the story of the head's remarkable journey, blending gallows humour with a compelling portrait of the great parliamentarian in life. It...

  4. The Oxford handbook of management

    Wilkinson, Adrian; Armstrong, Steve; Loundsbury, Michael
    Management, the pursuit of objectives through the organization and co-ordination of people, has been and is a core feature—and function— of modern society. Some ‘classic’ forms of corporate and bureaucratic management may be seen as the prevalent form of organization and organizing in the 20th century, but in the post-Fordist, global, knowledgedriven contemporary world we are seeing different patterns, principles, and styles of management as old models are questioned. The functions, ideologies, practices, and theories of management have changed over time, as recorded by many scholars, and may vary according to different models of organization, and between different cultures and societies. Whilst the administrative, corporate, or factory manager may be a...

    Hall, Sophie; Dolling, Luke; Bristow, Kate; Fuller, Ted; Mills, Daniel
    The aim of this report is to raise awareness of the importance of research concerning the economic impact of companion animals on society. • This report was inspired by the seminal Council for Science and Society (CSS) report Companion Animals in Society (1988), and updates and extends its evaluation of the value that companion animals bring to society. • Data available from the UK are used as examples throughout, but many of the points raised relate to industrialized nations globally. • It highlights potential direct and indirect costs and benefits of companion animals to the economy, and the value of exploring these further. • There is currently a lack of...

  14. Tennyson and mid-Victorian publishing: Moxon, poetry, commerce

    Cheshire, Jim
    This book examines how Tennyson’s career was mediated, organised and directed by the publishing industry. Founded on neglected archival material, it examines the scale and distribution of Tennyson’s book sales in Britain and America, the commercial logic of publishing poetry, and how illustrated gift books and visual culture both promoted and interrogated the Poet Laureate and his life. Major publishers had become disillusioned with poetry by the time that Edward Moxon founded his business in 1830 but by the mid-1860s, his firm presided over a resurgence in poetry based on Tennyson’s work. Moxon not only orchestrated Tennyson’s rise to fame...

  18. The act of documenting: documentary film in the 21st century

    Winston, Brian; Vanstone, Gail; Chi, Wang
    Documentary has never attracted such audiences, never been produced with such ease from so many corners of the globe, never embraced such variety of expression. The very distinctions between the filmed, the filmer and the spectator are being dissolved. The Act of Documenting addresses what this means for documentary's 21st century position as a genus in the “class” cinema; for its foundations as, primarily, a scientistic, eurocentric and patriarchal discourse; for its future in a world where assumptions of photographic image integrity cannot be sustained. Unpacked are distinctions between performance and performativy and between different levels of interaction, linearity and...
