4. Quality improvement in primary care: the essential guide - Gillam, Stephen; Siriwardena, A. Niroshan
This book provides readers with an invaluable set of tools to convert the endless challenges for quality and myriad opportunities for improvement into meaningful and useful change. It begins by considering how to manage primary care organisations in order to improve quality of care. Patient perspectives on quality are examined initially, moving onto market mechanisms and commissioning which are increasingly being used as levers for change. It also considers how general practices are regulated and held accountable for the quality of the services they provide. All doctors work within teams, organisations and the wider health system. How these are designed...

5. Masculinity and same-sex desire in industrial England, 1895-1957 - Smith, Helen
This book provides the first academic study of non-metropolitan men who desired other men in the period from 1895-1957. It places issues of class, masculinity and regionality alongside sexuality in seeking to understand how men experienced their emotional and sexual relationships with each other. This in turn, demonstrates new understandings of working-class culture, gender and the position of work in the identity of working-class men. The book takes a thematic approach to analyse the changes and continuities in how men experienced their sexual and emotional lives over the period and to map broader social and cultural changes. It uses a...

6. Watching the watchers: parliament and the intelligence services - Bochel, Hugh; Defty, Andrew; Kirkpatrick, Jane
This study offers a new and detailed examination of parliamentary scrutiny of the British intelligence and security agencies. Through detailed analysis of parliamentary business, coupled with interviews with MPs, peers and senior officials, it examines the various mechanisms by which parliament seeks to scrutinise the secret state, and assesses the extent to which parliament has both the capacity and the will to provide effective oversight of intelligence and security policy and agencies. In addition to providing a detailed analysis of the impact of the Intelligence and Security Committee, this is the first book to examine the various other means by...

7. Transitional justice and legacies of state violence - White, Lisa
As politicians, public bodies and non-Governmental organisations continue to profess an interest in making peace with the past, this highly original study explores the motivation, significance and legacy of ‘making public’ experiences of state violence in Northern Ireland. Based on a synthesis of documentary material with the findings from a series of contemporary interviews, this timely book uncovers the reasoning behind many Republican former detainees’ accounts of state violence and torture. It examines the aims of those who ‘went public’ during the conflict and discusses the meaning they attached to their stories and the various responses to them. It also identifies...

8. Friendship in medieval Iberia: historical, legal and literary perspectives - Liuzzo Scorpo, Antonella
Private and public relationships between individuals or groups - frequently labelled as friendships - have played a central role in human societies. Yet, over the centuries ideas and meanings of friendship transformed, adapting to the political and social climate of a period, and consequently resisting rigid definitions. Changing concepts and practices of friendship characterized the intellectual, social, political and cultural panorama of medieval Europe, including that of the fascinating and yet understudied thirteenth-century Iberia. The Peninsula’s fascinating history, as the subject of conquests and ‘Reconquest’, land of convivencia, but also of rebellions, political instability, and secular and religious international power-struggles,...

10. The correspondence of Dr. Martin Lister (1639-1712) [Volume One 1662-1677] - Roos, Anna Marie
Martin Lister (1639–1712) was a consummate virtuoso, the first arachnologist and conchologist, and a Royal physician. As one of the most prominent corresponding fellows of the Royal Society, many of Lister’s discoveries in natural history, archaeology, medicine, and chemistry were printed in the Philosophical Transactions. Lister corresponded extensively with explorers and other virtuosi such as John Ray, who provided him with specimens, observations, and locality records from Jamaica, America, Barbados, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and his native England. This volume of ca. 400 letters (one of three), consists of Lister’s correspondence dated from 1662 to 1677, including his time as...

11. The return of the epic film: genre, aesthetics and history in the 21st century - Elliott, Andrew
This book explores the return of the 'epic' in 21st-century cinema. With the success of Gladiator, both critics and scholars enthusiastically announced the return of a genre which had lain dormant for 30 years. However, this return raises important new questions which remain unanswered. Why did the epic come back, and why did it fall out of fashion? Are these the same kinds of epics as the 1950s and 60s, or are there aesthetic differences? Can we treat Kingdom of Heaven, 300 and Thor indiscriminately as one genre? Are non-Western histories like Hero and Mongol epics, too? Finally, what precisely...

Ireland in Proximity surveys and develops the expanding field of Irish Studies, reviewing existing debates within the discipline and providing new avenues for exploration. Drawing on a variety of disciplinary and theoretical approaches, this impressive collection of essays makes an innovative contribution to three areas of current, and often contentious, debate within Irish Studies.

14. Inhuman reflections: thinking the limits of the human - Brewster, Scott; Joughin, John J.; Owen, David; Walker, Richard J.
This text asks what it is to be human. Spectres, cyborgs, clones, aliens - contemporary representations of the inhuman hybrid seem more various, multiform and pressing than ever before. Increasingly the blurred distinction between human and inhuman and the attendant technisation of social life raises a series of opportunities for cultural analysis: both in terms of its current transformative refiguration of body and self and in relation to the narratives, networks and communities within which these new identities are redeployed and enjoyed. In the process of mapping a cultural genealogy which stretches from romanticism to "Neuromancer", this volume examines the...

16. The Routledge encyclopedia of films - Barrow, Sarah; Haenni, Sabine; White, John
The Routledge Encyclopedia of Films comprises 200 essays by leading film scholars analysing the most important, influential, innovative and interesting films of all time. Arranged alphabetically, each entry explores why each film is significant for those who study film and explores the social, historical and political contexts in which the film was produced. Ranging from Hollywood classics to international bestsellers to lesser-known representations of national cinema, this collection is deliberately broad in scope crossing decades, boundaries and genres. The encyclopedia thus provides an introduction to the historical range and scope of cinema produced throughout the world.

17. Lyric - Brewster, Scott
The term ‘lyric’ has evolved, been revised, redefined and contested over the centuries. This book traces the history of the term from its classical origins through the early modern, Romantic and Victorian periods and up to the twenty-first century, and demonstrates the influence of lyric on poetic practice, literature, music and other popular cultural forms. It uses three aspects – the lyric ‘self’, love and desire and the relationship between lyric, poetry and performance – as focal points for further discussion. Brewster not only charts the history of lyric theory and practice but re-examines assumptions about the lyric form in the...

18. Irish literature since 1990: diverse voices - Brewster, Scott; Parker, Michael

The book is distinctive in bringing together scholars from across Europe and the United States, and it offers a rich variety of critical perspectives. This collection provides a wide-ranging survey of fiction, poetry and drama over the last two decades, considering both well-established figures and also emerging writers who have received relatively little critical attention before. It also considers creative work in cinema, visual culture and the performing arts. Contributors explore the central developments within Irish culture and...

19. Journalism, audiences and diaspora - Ogunyemi, Ola
Journalism, Audiences and Diaspora is an important intervention into the scholarship on diasporic communication, as it reflects the many ways that journalism resists reification in the study of cultural, racial, ethnic communities. This collection takes the study of diasporic communication beyond the level of simply praising its existence, to offering critical engagements and analysis with the systems of journalistic production and dissemination as they relate to people who are living outside the borders of their birth nation, offering compelling case studies of production, process and consumption practices. Taking diasporic journalism seriously, as this book does, means examining how diasporic news...

Over the last thirty years, victims of crime have become a staple topic of media interest and policy-making discourse.Drawing on an extensive programme of first-hand empirical data gathered at some 300 English criminal trials, this book examines the practical outcomes of this reform agenda and assesses the meaning, implications and impact of the government's pledge to put victims 'at the heart' of the criminal justice system.The study also draws on in-depth interviews with barristers and solicitors, as well as court administrators and other Local Criminal Justice Board members. The book delves into the policy-making process behind these reforms, based on...
