With the help of some familiar friends, Ysolde sets into motion an elaborate plan that will have repercussions throughout the mortal and immortal worlds. But when a member of her family is held hostage, no one is safe from the fire of her rage.

Following the recent success of Taiwanese film directors, such as Hou Hsiao-hsien, Edward Yang, Ang Lee and Tsai Ming-liang, Taiwanese film is raising its profile in contemporary cinema. This collection presents an exciting and ambitious foray into the cultural politics of contemporary Taiwan film that goes beyond the auterist mode, the nation-state argument and vestiges of the New Cinema. Cinema Taiwan considers the complex problems of popularity, conflicts between transnational capital and local practice, non-fiction and independent filmmaking as emerging modes of address, and new possibilities of forging vibrant film cultures embedded in national (identity) politics, gender/sexuality and community activism. Insightful and challenging, the essays in this collection will attract attention to a globally significant field of cultural production and will appeal to readers from the areas of film studies, cultural studies and Chinese culture and society.

Romancing the Market is a radical rethinking of marketing understanding. Marketing and consumer research are dominated by the neo-classical ideals of the Enlightenment such as rigour, dispassion and the search for scientific 'truth'. In a series of provocative essays, the contributors challenge these assumptions with reference to the individuality, innovation and imagination of the Romantic movement. The book contains essays by an international selection of the most creative contemporary marketing scholars, including Elizabeth Hirschman, Russell Belk, Craig Thompson and Robin Wensley. Illuminating, controversial and cutting edge, this is an essential work for all those interested in new directions in marketing and consumer research.
