Deutsche Unternehmen, die in den mittelost- und südosteuropäischen Ländern tätig sind, müssen sich dort mit für sie oft unbekannten Verhaltensgewohnheiten, Denkmustern und Kommunikationsstilen auseinandersetzen. Dieses Buch, das sowohl an Fachwissenschaftler als auch an Unternehmen gerichtet ist, macht wichtige kulturelle Unterschiede deutlich und zeigt Wege auf, mit ihnen produktiv umzugehen. Dabei werden zwei verschiedene Zugangsweisen zu diesem Problem vorgestellt: Die Verwendung des „Kulturschocks“ als ein Forschungsinstrument, bestehende Kulturunterschiede zu bestimmen; und Erfahrungsberichte aus der beruflichen Praxis des Dolmetschens von Geschäftsverhandlungen.
Girls Make Media
Author: Mary Celeste Kearney
More girls are producing media today than at any other point in U.S. history, and they are creating media texts in virtually every format currently possible--magazines, films, musical recordings, and websites. Girls Make Media explores how young female media producers have reclaimed and reconfigured girlhood as a site for radical social, cultural, and political agency. Central to the book is an analysis of Riot Grrrl--a 1990s feminist youth movement from a fusion of punk rock and gender theory-and the girl power movement it inspired. The author also looks at the rise of girls-only media education programs, and the creation of girls' studies. This book will be essential reading for anyone seeking to understand contemporary female youth in today's media culture.

Fashion under fascism
Author: Eugenia Paulicelli
Publisher: Berg Publishers
Prada, Gucci, Max Mara: high fashion is synonymous with luxury, glamor, pleasure, and Italy. Yet Italian fashion also has a dark history that has not previously been explored. The Fascism of 1930's Italy dominated more than just politics--it spilled over into modes of dress. Fashion under Fascism is the first book to consider this link in detail. Fashion often functions as a tacit means of making a social statement, but under Mussolini it vividly reflected political tyranny. Paulicelli explores the subtle yet sinister changes to the seemingly innocuous practices of everyday dress and shows why they were such a concern for the state. Importantly, she also demonstrates how these developments impacted on the global dominance of Italian fashion today. This fascinating book includes interviews with major designers, such as Fernanda Gattinoni and Micol Fontana, and sheds new light on the complicated relationship between style and politics.

How is broadcast regulation changing in response to the rise of new media?

It goes beyond the use of two languages and thus concentrates on a new and developing area in linguistic research. The different perspectives provide a link to the mainstream work on the lexicon and vocabulary acquisition and will stimulate further debate in these areas and in the study of multilingualism.
