State of Play by Bill Ripken Book Resume:

Advanced statistics and new terminology have taken hold of baseball today, but do they accurately reflect the reality of the game? A baseball lifer states his case. America's favorite pastime is enduring an assault of new thoughts and ideas. In recent years, the sabermetrics and analytics craze has infiltrated Major League Baseball--from its front offices to dugouts to clubhouses to media covering both, inciting a baseball culture war. New phrases like "launch angle," "spin rate," and "pitch framing" have entered the vocabulary, often with little real meaning when it comes to how the game is actually played on the field. No more. In State of Play, twelve-year Major League veteran, Emmy Award-winning MLB Network analyst, and bestselling author Bill Ripken breaks down these modern statistical methods to explain which ones make sense in the game's historical context, bringing them together with proven old-school strategies. He simplifies those sabermetric terms hastily added to the baseball lexicon without being fully realized, taking new-school confusion out of old-school baseball's tried-and-true common sense. In the end, he unites the teachings of each school to show fans of both how to listen to and understand the game as it's played today and how it should be played moving forward. From a true baseball lifer and member of baseball's first family, State of Play offers a fascinating insider's look at how to reconcile years of historical tradition with the rules and trends of the new millennium. As Ripken sees it: the game inside the game cannot be measured by a spreadsheet--but it can be measured by a qualified, crusty baseball man. Play ball.

State of play by Robin Nelson Book Resume:

Robin Nelson's State of play up-dates and develops the arguments of his influential TV Drama In Transition (1997). It is equally distinctive in setting analusis of the aesethetics and compositional principles of texts within a broad conceptual framework (technologies, institutions, economics, cultural trends). Tracing "the great value shift from conduit to content" (Todreas, 1999), Nelson is relatively optimistic about the future quality of TV Drama in a global market-place. But, characteristically taking up questions of worth where others have avoided them, Nelson recognizes that certain types of "quality" are privileged for viewers able to pay, possibly at the expense of viewer preference worldwide for "local" resonances in television. The mix of arts and cultural studies methodologies makes for an unusual and insightful approach.

A State of Play by Steven Fielding Book Resume:

A State of Play explores how the British have imagined their politics, from the parliament worship of Anthony Trollope to the cynicism of The Thick of It. In an account that mixes historical with political analysis, Steven Fielding argues that fictional depictions of politics have played an important but insidious part in shaping how the British think about their democracy and have helped ventilate their many frustrations with Westminster. He shows that dramas and fictions have also performed a significant role in the battle of ideas, in a way undreamt of by those who draft party manifestos. The book examines the work of overtly political writers have treated the subject, discussing the novels of H.G. Wells, the comedy series Yes, Minister and the plays of David Hare. However, it also assesses how less obvious sources, such as the films of George Formby, the novels of Agatha Christie, the Just William stories and situation comedies like Steptoe and Son, have reflected on representative democracy. A State of Play is an invaluable, distinctive and engaging guide to a new way of thinking about Britain's political past and present.

The State of Play by Jack Balkin,Beth Simone Noveck,Jerry Hultin Global Network Professor Beth Simone Noveck Book Resume:

The State of Play presents an essential first step in understanding how new digital worlds will change the future of our universe. Millions of people around the world inhabit virtual words: multiplayer online games where characters live, love, buy, trade, cheat, steal, and have every possible kind of adventure. Far more complicated and sophisticated than early video games, people now spend countless hours in virtual universes like Second Life and Star Wars Galaxies not to shoot space invaders but to create new identities, fall in love, build cities, make rules, and break them. As digital worlds become increasingly powerful and lifelike, people will employ them for countless real-world purposes, including commerce, education, medicine, law enforcement, and military training. Inevitably, real-world law will regulate them. But should virtual worlds be fully integrated into our real-world legal system or should they be treated as separate jurisdictions with their own forms of dispute resolution? What rules should govern virtual communities? Should the law step in to protect property rights when virtual items are destroyed or stolen? These questions, and many more, are considered in The State of Play, where legal experts, game designers, and policymakers explore the boundaries of free speech, intellectual property, and creativity in virtual worlds. The essays explore both the emergence of law in multiplayer online games and how we can use virtual worlds to study real-world social interactions and test real-world laws. Contributors include: Jack M. Balkin, Richard A. Bartle, Yochai Benkler, Caroline Bradley, Edward Castronova, Susan P. Crawford, Julian Dibbell, A. Michael Froomkin, James Grimmelmann, David R. Johnson, Dan Hunter, Raph Koster, F. Gregory Lastowka, Beth Simone Noveck, Cory Ondrejka, Tracy Spaight, and Tal Zarsky.

Titus Andronicus: The State of Play

State Of Play [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Titus Andronicus: The State of Play by Farah Karim Cooper Book Resume:

Shakespeare's and Peele's Titus Andronicus has had a theatrical and a critical revival in the last fifteen years; the critical revival was perhaps prompted by Jonathan Bate's Arden edition of the play and its revision of the traditional critical account that it is an immature work and overly sensationalistic with its emphasis on non-essential violence. Recent debates and approaches have drawn closer attention to the play's classicism; re-defined its genre (for example the revised edition of the New Dramatic Sources will re-classify the play as one of Shakespeare's Roman plays); re-considered the nature of violent spectacle, family relations and kinship, political alliance, race and miscegenation. This study will explore how the revitalized critical responses to early modern and contemporary performance histories has had a significant impact upon the wider reception of this play.

Elizabethan Narrative Poems: The State of Play

State Of Play [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Elizabethan Narrative Poems: The State of Play by Lynn Enterline Book Resume:

Shakespeare saw only two poems through to publication: Venus and Adonis and The Rape of Lucrece. They were both extremely popular in their day, with one contemporary comparing Lucrece to Hamlet as a work to “please the wiser sort.” This volume traces the larger conversation that took place in the 1590s within the vogue for minor epic narratives as Shakespeare and a coterie of Ovidian imitators composed and published erotic epyllia to, for, and against one another. These poems take place in imagined worlds far removed from urban world of London. But despite that apparent remove, these classicizing narratives are in fact deeply engaged in wide-ranging critiques of 16th century norms for masculine conduct – whether professional, poetic, economic, legal, emotional, or sexual. The essays put Shakespeare's two epyllia into conversation with a wide variety of contemporary writers in the vernacular – particularly from the Inns of Court (Thomas Lodge, Francis Beaumont) but also with other playwrights (Marlowe, Heywood), poets (Spenser), and in one case, with the neo-Latin poetry of the law student, Thomas Campion. This volume contributes to the current, vigorous reassessment of humanism's unintended consequences by drawing attention to the highly diverse forms that early modern classicism might take in the hands of those educated by this “new” Latin pedagogy. On the one hand, these essays bring a wide variety of current critical methodologies to bear on Venus and Adonis, The Rape of Lucrece, Hero and Leander, and the many other epyllia with which Shakespeare engaged. On the other hand, they demonstrate how classical rhetorical training in general and Ovid's Metamorphoses in particular gave early modern writers a highly developed, shared language for social and poetic critique.
