3 A diachronic analysis of Jamaican reggae charts, 1968–2000 Reggae charts mix different styles (roots reggae, dancehall reggae …) as well as contents (love songs, slackness, religious or sociopolitical songs…). They are therefore representative of reggae music as a whole, in contrast to the data I am using throughout this book for a qualitative analysis of content, which pertain exclusively to reggae songs by artists more or less loosely linked to the Rastafari movement. The principal question underlying this chart analysis concerns the general evolution of

national efficiency we can see attempts to create a new consensus around a single national purpose. 7 How can we relate the science content of popular periodicals to the negotiation of social consensus and to the transition from a late Victorian to an Edwardian mentality, from complacency to crisis? Always interested in something, Arthur Pearson was never interested in anything for

as the Newgate novel, the only one of its set to demonstrate an openness to side with social unrest. I do not deny that in many ways the novel simply tells the story of Jack Sheppard or that the potentially incendiary content of his story is often treated ambivalently and non-politically. I am in fact interested in the way that the ambivalence made the novel so tantalising to some and so threatening to others. 2 Aside from nostalgia for the Jacobin rebellions, Ainsworth’s biography includes little that would suggest he had radical sympathies. 3 But with Bulwer

the benefit of identifying monastic life with living regulariter, defining regulariter textually and defining the Regula Benedicti as the Rule outweighed the intrinsic contradictions between regula and practice. This contribution addresses the question of how monks and monastic reformers dealt with the disconnect between the content of the Regula Benedicti and their own reality. Which textual techniques did they apply to reconcile norms and practice? This question forms part of a larger project: to get a sense of the concept of normative observance in general

Britain as the spoils of empire

emancipatory and reparative discourses and strategies for migrant solidarity and racial justice. The categories that form the springboard for my analysis are aliens, subjects, citizens, migrants, asylum seekers, refugees, European Union (EU) citizens and third country nationals. Although I take them in turn, the book is offered holistically. In order to meaningfully understand the content and effects of one category, each must be considered in terms of its relationship to the others. What becomes apparent is not only the interconnectedness of legal categories, but their

demonstrates the importance of separating out partisan commentary (in contemporary news media) from the content of address themselves. 6 The texts of these addresses often represented attempts to occupy a middle ground and avoid ideological over-commitment, and also conveyed specific local concerns as well as responding to and embedding national debates. In this chapter, I suggest that the crisis of political credibility identified by Knights was also partly a product of conscious rhetorical strategies which attempted to fashion

world as seen from the perspective of the educated gentry. This chapter is concerned with a number of areas related to the topographical content of local history. Firstly, it explores the parallels between its development and the appearance of the early county maps and town plans. I shall examine the ways in which the two forms reflect a similar view of the environment that they describe, and how the perspective of the gentry – as the primary consumers of both – shaped their content. Secondly, I shall consider the thesis advanced in the 1970s by Margaret Aston, that

Youth, pop and the rise of Madchester
Author: Steve Redhead

Madchester may have been born at the Haçienda in the summer of 1988, but the city had been in creative ferment for almost a decade prior to the rise of Acid House. The End-of-the-Century Party is the definitive account of a generational shift in popular music and youth culture, what it meant and what it led to. First published right after the Second Summer of Love, it tells the story of the transition from New Pop to the Political Pop of the mid-1980s and its deviant offspring, Post-Political Pop. Resisting contemporary proclamations about the end of youth culture and the rise of a new, right-leaning conformism, the book draws on interviews with DJs, record company bosses, musicians, producers and fans to outline a clear transition in pop thinking, a move from an obsession with style, packaging and synthetic sounds to content, socially conscious lyrics and a new authenticity.

This edition is framed by a prologue by Tara Brabazon, which asks how we can reclaim the spirit, energy and authenticity of Madchester for a post-youth, post-pop generation. It is illustrated with iconic photographs by Kevin Cummins.

consensus-oriented policy deliberation among the euro area’s top decision-makers. It reviews the features of the particular negotiation setting constituted by the Eurogroup. In a similar fashion it discusses whether the specific content of Eurogroup discussions is compatible with a deliberative style of discussion. Moreover, the discussion reflects on the outcome of the informal debates. Finally, these findings will be contrasted with the prevailing pattern of official Council negotiations, which represent the key framework for intergovernmental decision-making at the EU
