Moreover, Shakespeare would surely never have rendered her so literally ... especially as he was supposed to have inherited her from his patron, the Lord Chamberlain Hunsdon, one of Elizabeth’s most formidable warriors and protectors.

controversy well before the election campaign, the rate of unemployment was making headlines for months, as the government claimed much lower rates of unemployment than the ones reported by international organisations. The opposition was quick to accuse the government of misleading the public and eventually managed to persuade voters that the SAP was unable to offer solutions to the problem. In combination with a slow trickle of minor scandals which dented the reliability of key ministers and the objectivity of civil servants, the belated recognition by the SAP that

By the end of the nineteenth century, however, there were massive problems of congestion and economic irrationality with the overlapping and conflicting interests of other London markets. The unlikely combination of Punch and the Fabian Society (1897) waged vigorous campaigns against the scandal of ‘Mud Salad Market’, the latter arguing for the necessity of an integrated

Though several papers attribute considerable importance to highly publicised episodes like BSE, none presumes that this is a sufficient basis for the current attention to food. For many other changes in the organisation of the food system have occurred independently. Some are to be found in the upper reaches of the food supply chain, a result of globalisation of sourcing, transformation in the agro

the north, particularly after the 1950s, is one of the most significant (Bull and Corner 1993). Yet what also challenged the aforementioned dichotomy were the transformations in the political arena Italy underwent in the 1990s: the economic crisis and the corruption scandals that led to the demise of the governing Christian Democratic Party A ‘private place’? 31 brought about a situation of political instability. Such changes were accompanied by the gradual decline of the Italian State as the main framework controlling the national economy and containing its

difficult to distinguish between what the Society advocated as religious ethics, and what were its practical policies.32 Unlike its effects, the cause of the split was relatively trivial. The Executive Committee discovered that its subscription agent, Lewis Appleton, had been collecting subscriptions and donations and failing to pass them all on to the Society. He was dismissed and immediately began to organise a ‘rival’ society that he tried to build up using his Peace Society contacts. This was not difficult as the scandal was kept private and subscribers had no

More often than not, such violence is rationalised and made unthinkable precisely because they do not fit within the dominant codes of who is family. In light of the discussions that have run through this book, the place of whiteness and family must also be understood with regard to its contingency and flexibility. Liberalism remains a violent project of domestication but it is also one of inclusion. Borders include and exclude. We

In ‘La Photographie’, the forcible unveiling of the women is treated as an act of violence perpetrated by the colonising power against the colonised. The transgression of a religious taboo is not at issue. Elsewhere, however, Sebbar has written critically of religious attitudes to the veiling of the female body: for instance, in her open letter to Taslima Nasreen she talks of the perceived need by clerics to control the ‘scandal’ of the female body by veiling what might
