Rooted in the telling of one family's life, The Chopsticks-Fork Principle: A Memoir and Manual by Cathy Bao Bean is a story for all families. In this humorous and poignant memoir, the author, an immigrant from China, recounts how she figured out how to be herself, as well as raise a son whose artist father did things like paint the lawn.

The Chopsticks-Fork Principle is also a manual that explains how anyone who steps outside the home can benefit by greater awareness of the diversity within and around us. - Publisher.

This volume examines the transmission, reception, and reproduction of new cinematic styles, meanings, practices, and norms in early twenty-first-century Asia. Hong Kong and Bollywood offers new answers to the field of inter-Asian cultural studies, which has been energized by the trends towards transnationalism and translatability. It brings together a team of international scholars to capture the latest development in the film industries of Hong Kong and Mumbai, and to explore similar cross-cultural, political, and socioeconomic issues. It also explains how Hong Kong and Bollywood filmmakers have gone beyond the traditional focus on nationalism, urbanity and biculturalism to reposition themselves as new cultural forces in the pantheon of global cinema.

Unfathomably merciless and powerful, the atomic bomb has left its indelible mark on film. In Atomic Bomb Cinema, Jerome F. Shapiro unearths the unspoken legacy of the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima and its complex aftermath in American and Japanese cinema. According to Shapiro, a "Bomb film" is never simply an exercise in ideology or paranoia. He examines hundreds of films like Godzilla, Dr. Strangelove, and The Terminator as a body of work held together by ancient narrative and symbolic traditions that extol survival under devastating conditions. Drawing extensively on both English-language and Japanese-language sources, Shapiro argues that such films not only grapple with our nuclear anxieties, but also offer signs of hope that humanity is capable of repairing a damaged and divided world. www.atomicbombcinema.com

Since the early 1990s there has been a trend towards narrative complexity within popular cinema, as evidenced by the successes of such films as Pulp Fiction, Memento and Run Lola Run. Modular Narratives in Contemporary Cinema looks at the way a number of these films play with time and narrative. Allan Cameron shows how this formal play reflects a persistent fascination with questions of chance and destiny, memory and history, and the representation of simultaneous events.

Design And Cinema

Why has cinema become so closely acquainted with the design disciplines, and vice versa? What valuable or significant experience can come out from this brotherhood, both in terms of substantial and in terms of representative means? What seems to be more promising in terms of theory making both in design and in cinema is the substantial dimension of their relationship, since it points to an essential change in our conception of existence and space: The timelessness of optic space replaced by the time-bounded experientiality of haptic space. This also brings about different theoretical elements for analysis by leaving the subject and the object aside and looking into what their relations have produced, the outcome being patterns of experience which exist somewhere between the lived and the made, i.e. being abstract and concrete at the same time. And, finally, this is where cinema becomes a poetic medium and an important tool for representing the so-called patterns. Design and Cinema: Form Follows Film is interested in seeing those patterns in terms of formal categories, thought to be representation of certain experiences. The book is organized in two parts, Discourse on Form and Film and Works on Form and Film. The first part of the book - discourse - is intended to give a picture of current thought on the formal categories, introduced here as, existential, narrative, structural, constructive, temporal, digital, social, and fragmental. The second part of the book presents works, conducted either in the form of workshops or films, as expressive media of the formal categories discussed in the first part. The volume presents works of Juhani Pallasmaa, Gul Kale, Ayse N.Erek, Ayse E.C. Orlandi, Andong Lu, Francois Penz, Marshall Deutelbaum, Ferenc Bone, Dilek Altuntas, Halit Refig, Arthur Lizie, Tugyan A.Dural, Fatos Adiloglu, Seckin Kutucu, Lutz Robbers, Turker Armaner, Feride Cicekoglu, Alex McDowell, Gul K.Erk, Joaquim Moreno, Aydin H.
