Written especially for undergraduate students, Representation synthesises and updates our understandings of representation - and the tools for its analysis - for use in the new mediascape. Jenny Kidd uses an engaging range of current examples and a lively style to explore a number of key questions reflecting existing and contemporary debates about representation. These key questions include: Who ‘owns’ and manages representations? Whose realities are foregrounded, and whose are consigned to invisibility? To what extent are increased opportunities for self-representation altering the landscape? And what happens to representation within the noisy, playful and often subversive communications of the Internet? Kidd considers the political, social and cultural importance of representation across a broad spectrum of cultural and creative industries. This examination of the relationship between media/cultural representations and the construction of reality, identity and society makes it an ideal text for students that need to get to grips with this core thematic of media and cultural studies.

This book is suitable for those preparing for the examinations of ICB, AAT, IAB, OCR, AQA and all other courses in computerised accounting. Learning computerised book-keeping skills is very different from manual accounting. It can seem more like learning computer studies than book-keeping, and it is often difficult to connect it with what may have been previously learned in manual book-keeping. In this book Dr Marshall resolves this problem with the same skill and insight that made his book on manual book-keeping, Mastering Book-keeping, so useful to readers over the years. Deliberately constructing a clear and continuous bridge between the methods so that the student never loses sight of the double entry concept, he presents the material in a way that makes computerised book-keeping clear and easy to understand.

The Cinematic City offers an innovative and thought-provoking insight into cityscape and screenscape and their inter-connection. Illustrated throughout with movie stills, a diverse selection of films (from 'Bladerunner' to 'Little Caesar'), genres, cities and historical periods are examined by leading names in the field. The key dimensions of film and urban theory are introduced before detailed analysis of the various cinematic forms which relate most significantly to the city. From early cinema and documentary film, to film noir, 'New Wave' and 'postmodern cinema', the contributors provide a wealth of empirical material and illustration whilst drawing on the theoretical insights of contemporary feminism, Benjamin, Baudrillard, Foucault, Lacan, and others. The Cinematic City shows how the city has been undeniably shaped by the cinematic form, and how cinema owes much of its nature to the historical development of urban space. Engaging with current theoretical debates, this is a book that is set to change the way in which we think about both the nature of the city and film.
