Drawing on five years of ethnographic research in New York City with African Americans and Latinos living in poverty, Where Have All the Homeless Gone? reveals that the US homeless “crisis” of the late 1980s and early 1990s was driven as much by political misrepresentations of poverty, race, and social difference, as the housing, unemployment, and healthcare problems that caused homelessness and continue to plague American cities.
As the Berghahn Books blog wraps up it’s third week of existence, we’re excited to announce our first contest. To be entered to win a copy of Michael Haneke’s Cinema: The Ethics of the Image by Catherine Wheatley, follow Berghahn Books on Facebook by 5 p.m. EST Monday. We’ll select a winner at random from our new followers.
The first English-language analysis of Michael Haneke’s work, Michael Haneke’s Cinema offers a critical analysis of the Austrian director’s first eight feature films. Drawing on the moral philosophy of Immanuel Kant and Stanley Cavell, Catherine Wheatley, introduces a new way of marrying film and moral philosophy, which explicitly examines the ethics of the film viewing experience. This critically acclaimed work was shortlisted for the Best Moving Image Book by the And/Or Book Awards and the 2009 Willy Haas and was the Sight and Sound Magazine Book of the Month in September, 2009.
