Companion to Contemporary Black British Culture by G. A. J. Rogers

Book Description

The Companion to Contemporary Black British Culture is the first comprehensive reference book to provide multidisciplinary coverage of the field of black cultural production in Britain. The publication is of particular value because despite attracting growing academic interest in recent years, this field is still often subject to critical and institutional neglect. For the purpose of the Companion, the term 'black' is used to signify African, Caribbean and South Asian ethnicities, while at the same time addressing the debates concerning notions of black Britishness and cultural identity. This single volume Companion covers seven intersecting areas of black British cultural production since 1970: writing, music, visual and plastic arts, performance works, film and cinema, fashion and design, and intellectual life. With entries on distinguished practitioners, key intellectuals, seminal organizations and concepts, as well as popular cultural forms and local activities, the Companion is packed with information and suggestions for further reading, as well as offering a wide lens on the events and issues that have shaped the cultural interactions and productions of black Britain over the last thirty years. With a range of specialist advisors and contributors, this work promises to be an invaluable sourcebook for students, researchers and academics interested in exploring the diverse, complex and exciting field of black cultural forms in postcolonial Britain.

Books By Author G. A. J. Rogers

Insiders and Outsiders in Seventeenth-Century Philosophy by G. A. J. Rogers Insiders and Outsiders in Seventeenth-Century Philosophy, Paperback (February 2013)

17th-century philosophy scholars come together in this volume to address the 'insiders' such as Descartes, Spinoza, Leibniz, Locke, and Hobbes, and the 'outsiders' such as Gassendi, Digby, Gale, Cudworth and Malebranche, of the philosocial canon.

Analytic Philosophy and History of Philosophy by G. A. J. Rogers Analytic Philosophy and History of Philosophy, Hardback (March 2005)

Philosophy written in English is overwhelmingly analytic philosophy, and the techniques and predilections of analytic philosophy are not only unhistorical but anti-historical, and hostile to textual commentary. Here, ten philosophers explore the tensions between, and the possibilities of reconciling, analytic philosophy and history of philosophy.

Leviathan by G. A. J. Rogers Leviathan, Hardback (November 2003)

This is a critical edition of Hobbes's "Leviathan". By an analysis of the text, enabling a new printing history of "Leviathan" to be constructed, this edition demonstrates that the traditional picture is substantially wrong.

Locke's Philosophy by G. A. J. Rogers Locke's Philosophy, Paperback (September 1996)

This work looks both at core areas of John Locke's philosophy and political theory and at the links between his philosophy and his religious and political thought, the effects and implications of his works in the world at the time, and the manifestation of those effects in the present day.
