Ukraine - Culture Smart!
9,70 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

When you travel to Ukraine, you enter a country full of paradoxes. The Ukrainians are proud of their roots, and reticent about their recent past the country participates in international space programs and produces the world's largest aircraft, but still lives in a world of superstitions. The Ukrainian way of life is a mix of the old Soviet legacy, centuries-old customs, and a search for a new European identity. The word ukraina means "borderland," and indeed for centuries the country was a border province of great empires. Different states fought bloody wars for the fertile Ukrainian lands and tore the country to pieces. Its history has been a constant struggle for independence and freedom, and foreign domination has left indelible traces in the Ukrainian mentality: Ukrainians are fatalistic, patient, and resilient, and one of the most popular sayings translates as "Things will improve somehow." Culture Smart! Ukraine will help you get to know the Ukrainians at home, at work, and at play. It will inform you about the historical, political, and religious background that continues to shape the Ukrainian psyche today. Using illustrative anecdotes, it describes present-day values and attitudes, and offers practical advice on what to expect and how to behave in different social circumstances. It aims to make you feel at ease, whether you are sitting at a generously spread Ukrainian dinner table, shopping in a market, or attending a formal business meeting.

Generations ago, eating was much less complicated. We tended to shop more often at markets that provided fresh, locally produced foods. Families ate together, and most meals were cooked and eaten at home. Today, with the prevalence of packaged convenience foods and easy access to cheaper food in restaurants, our waistlines are expanding and our wellness is declining rapidly. In today’s high-speed culture, sensible human nutrition has been sidetracked by convenience foods and fad diets. Attempting to cut through the hype can be overwhelming for anyone, even when you have the best of intentions about adopting healthier eating habits and committing to long-term wellness. Fortunately, wellness expert Brett Blumenthal has created a straightforward diet and nutrition program to demystify the secrets of healthy eating once and for all. She identifies five simple principles, founded in fact, that can easily be applied in everyday life. Her "get real" toolkit outlines tips on establishing proper portion size, shopping smart at the grocery store, and making healthy substitutions in cooking, along with advice about exercise, hydration, and stress reduction. Hailed as "the ‘diet book’ for people who hate diet books", Get Real and Stop Dieting! will inspire, empower, and motivate you to live a healthier, happier life. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Emily Beresford. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brll/004533/bk_brll_004533_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

`Alan Bryman has expanded on his internationally well-known work on Disney theme parks and Disneyization to create a fascinating and highly readable book. It should prove of interest to beginning students in a number of different courses and fields, as well as to scholars interested in culture and consumption. There is no question that the model created by Disney, and emulated in whole or in part by many organizations and in many settings, will continue to influence social structure and culture well into the future. This is an important book about a significant social process. And, it manages to be a fun read, as well!' - George Ritzer, author of McDonaldization and Professor of Sociology, University of Maryland `Bryman's analysis of contemporay consumption is full of detail and provides a host of examples ranging from restaurants and hotels, to theme parks, zoos and sports stadia. Without doubt students will find it an accessible text, one that should allow them to think about consumption, familiar consumer products, settings and activities, sociologically' - Barry Smart, Professor of Sociology, University of Portsmouth `Bryman's dissection of Disneyization is a timely and significant contribution to the growing literature on Disney. In fact, his excellent analysis of the extension of Disneyization throughout society explains why we should care about the Disney phenomenon at all. This is not only an important book for Disney scholars, but for any one interested in the future of modern society' - Janet Wasko Professor of Communication Studies, University of Oregon This is an agenda-setting new work in the sociology of culture and modern society. It argues that the contemporary world is increasingly converging towards the characteristics of the Disney theme parks. This process of convergence is revealed in: the growing influence of themed environments in settings like restaurants, shops, hotels, tourism and zoos; the growing trend towards social environments that are driven by combinations of forms of consumption: shopping, eating out, gambling, visiting the cinema, watching sports; the growth in cachet awarded to brands based on licensed merchandise; and the increased prominence of work that is a performance in which the employees have to display certain emotions and generally convey impressions as though working in a theatrical event. This insightful book demonstrates the importance of control and surveillance in consumer culture. Of interest to a wide variety of students studying in business, sociology, cultural studies, media studies and leisure studies courses this will also be of interest to anybody interested in understanding the intricacies of modern society.

This accessible, smart, and expansive book on shopping's impact on American life is in part historical, stretching back to the mid-19th century, yet also has a contemporary focus, with material on recent trends in shopping from the internet to Zagat's guides. Drawing inspiration from both Pierre Bourdieu's work and Walter Benjamin's seminal essay on the shopping arcades of 19th-century Paris, Zukin explores the forces that have made shopping so central to our lives: the rise of consumer culture, the never-ending quest for better value, and shopping's ability to help us improve our social status and attain new social identities.
