Django is an amazingly powerful system for creating modern, dynamic websites. But programming Django hasn’t always been easy—until now. Django Unleashed is your step-by-step, beginner-friendly guide to leveraging Django’s core capabilities and its powerful contributed library. You’ll learn in the most effective way possible: hands on, by building a fully functional Django website from scratch. You’ll even deploy the website to the cloud. As you build your website, expert Django consultant and trainer Andrew Pinkham reveals how websites operate; how Django makes building websites easy; how to write Python code that leverages its immense capabilities; and how to build solutions that are robust, reliable, and secure. You’ll start simply and learn to solve increasingly challenging problems: mastering new features and understanding how Django’s architecture shapes their behavior, and gaining essential knowledge for working with any web framework, not just Django.

Django Unchained is certainly Quentin Tarantino's most commercially-successful film and is arguably also his most controversial. Fellow director Spike Lee has denounced the representation of race and slavery in the film, while many African American writers have defended the white auteur. The use of extremely graphic violence in the film, even by Tarantino's standards, at a time when gun control is being hotly debated, has sparked further controversy and has led to angry outbursts by the director himself. Moreover, Django Unchained has become a popular culture phenomenon, with t-shirts, highly contentious action figures, posters, and strong DVD/BluRay sales. The topic (slavery and revenge), the setting (a few years before the Civil War), the intentionally provocative generic roots (Spaghetti Western and Blaxploitation) and the many intertexts and references (to German and French culture) demand a thorough examination. Befitting such a complex film, the essays collected here represent a diverse group of scholars who examine Django Unchained from many perspectives.

Quentin Tarantino's films beg to be considered metafiction: metacommentaries that engage with the history of cultural representations and exalt the aesthetic, ethical, and political potential of creation as re-re-creation and resignification. Covering all eight of Quentin Tarantino's films according to certain themes, David Roche combines cultural studies and neoformalist approaches to highlight how closely the films' poetics and politics are intertwined. Each in-depth chapter focuses on a salient feature, some which have drawn much attention (history, race, gender, violence), others less so (narrative structure, style, music, theatricality). Roche sets Tarantino's films firmly in the legacy of Howard Hawks, Jean-Luc Godard, Sergio Leone, and the New Hollywood, revising the image of a cool pop-culture purveyor that the American director cultivated at the beginning of his career. Roche emphasizes the breadth and depth of his films' engagement with culture, highbrow and lowbrow, screen and print, American, East Asian, and European.

More than 8 Hours of Video Instruction Overview Advanced Web Development in Python with Django LiveLessons is intended for people familiar with web development who understand the basics of Django and want to get more out of it but are unfamiliar with more difficult topics such as authentication, database query optimization, and caching. The course builds directly on top of Andrew Pinkham's previous course, Web Development in Python with Django LiveLessons, starting with the same code base where the class left off and building new features in the same project, making for a clear and clean learning progression. While the previous course is not a hard prerequisite, the prerequisites for that course and the concepts introduced in it will be necessary to understand the videos. A review lesson enables people to judge for themselves whether the course is appropriate for their level. About the Instructor Andrew Pinkham is the founder and lead engineer at JamBon Software, which provides development consulting services. He is the author of Django Unleashed  (Pearson) and a popular speaker at DjangoCon U.S., and provides instruction in Python and Django. Andrew specializes in web and mobile products and enjoys communicating complex ideas in simple ways. He is also passionate about usability, security, and distributed systems. He is a 2009 graduate of Dartmouth College and currently resides in Boston, Massachusetts.

Men's Cinema offers a fresh theorisation of men in Hollywood cinema via a theoretical discussion of definitions of masculinity and the close textual analysis of classic and contemporary films. Through an examination of mise-en-scene, Men's Cinema moves beyond discussions of representation and narrative to an exploration of the physical or instinctive effects of cinema and how we are invited to engage with, desire or identify with Hollywood's vision of men and masculinity. By delineating how Hollywood has built up and refined the language of men's cinema through a series of recurrent, refined tropes, this book critically explores masculinity and the concept of a male aesthetic within film.Films discussed include: The Deer Hunter, Dirty Harry, Goodfellas, Inception, Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Once Upon a Time in the West, Point Break, Raging Bull, Rebel Without A Cause, Reservoir Dogs, Sherlock Holmes, There's Always Tomorrow, The Wild Bunch.

The profound influence of jazz in French culture is addressed in this examination of the heterogeneous array of symbols that France associates with the art form. Since its debut at the end of World War I, jazz in France has embodied modernity, sexual liberation, and the promise of America, while also signifying an encroachment of American culture, African primitivism, social decadence, and moral decay. This study analyzes the production and reception of these symbolic associations as they appear in French cinema, music, literature, and cultural icons from de Beauvoir to Derrida.

With more than 500 reviews by subject specialists, this volume is the only comprehensive record of the output of new works in science fiction, fantasy, and horror fiction. The volume begins with a survey of the year for fiction in the three areas. Each survey section concludes with a recommended reading list. In addition there is a survey of fantasy literature and film scholarship, a survey of the year in young adult fiction in the three main areas. Following sections devoted to award winners in 1989 and 1990, the volume provides alphabetically arranged reviews for fiction, young adult fiction, and non-fiction. Access to the material is augmented by a comprehensive title index. By concentrating on literature and serious scholarship rather than peripheral materials, and by enlisting the assistance of the leading scholars in the field, Collins and Latham have assembled a work that is invaluable to teachers, students, and librarians seeking guidance in collection building in science fiction, fantasy, and horror fiction and scholarship. This and the preceding two annuals are designed for easy use within school, public, and university libraries and will be of interest to individual collectors/readers in these three areas as well.
