Merchant Moscow by James L. West,Iurii A. Petrov Pdf

With the collapse of the Soviet system, the long-neglected history of the early capitalists is being recovered and rewritten. Once regarded as the "losers" in the Russian Revolution, these merchants can now be seen as early pioneers in Russia's transformation to a free market economy. This book is the first joint Russian-American collaborative project on the history of Russian entrepreneurship. Merchant Moscow puts a human face on early Russian capitalism. It presents thematic groupings of historic photographs paired with commentaries by contemporary Russian and American historians. The pictures provide a stunning, wide-ranging visual portrait of Imperial Russia's most influential entrepreneurial elite, the Moscow merchantry, while the accompanying articles interpret the photographs and place them in the larger cultural context of prerevolutionary Russia. Here is a surprising new view of the bourgeoisie during the Silver Age, revealed for the first time in this fascinating volume. The fourteen contributing historians selected and ordered photographs that best illustrate their specialized knowledge of the period. They have framed their topics in a variety of ways. Some have chosen to pursue traditional topics, such as collective biography, institutional history, or the history of business practices. Others have approached the photographs in more experimental ways, emphasizing the semiotics of dress, discourses of identity, or the history of daily life. Together they offer fresh perspectives on the successes and failures of Russia's first experiment with entrepreneurial capitalism. Originally published in 1998.

The 2.5% by Lida Hujić Pdf

The 2.5% (small group – big influence) introduces a ground-breaking model for cool’s cyclical reinvention, which explains how idiosyncratic ideas become the norm. A fresh interpretation of Everett Rogers’ widely applied 'innovations diffusion', the novelty is its focus on the Innovator (the first type on the innovations diffusion curve, preceding the Early Adopter). Innovators only constitute 2.5% of the population but this globally scattered minority of rule breakers is influential. They are the creators of new trends and new consumption patterns that will shape the mainstream. Based on insider knowledge of cutting-edge cultures, academic rigour and marketing agility, this robust model is designed to inspire future-proof ideas for market research, innovation and communications professionals but also anyone interested in where trends come from and how and why people adopt them. Very insightful, sure to be a success - Marcelo Amstalden Möller (formerly Global Director, International Brands & Craft Portfolio, HEINEKEN Group B. V; Vice President, Global Brand & Corporate Marketing Communications · Wolters Kluwer) ​Extraordinarily engaging - Peter Nash (Chair of Programme Committee, inaugural ESOMAR FUSION Conference) ​A fantastic new analytical narrative […] fun, thought-provoking [and] well worth a read Dr Nick Baker, Chief Research Officer, SAVANTA; Non-exec Chair of the MARKET RESEARCH SOCIETY (MRS) Very inspiring [and] groundbreaking - Akiko Hoshi (Head of Qualitative Research Advancement, INTAGE QUALIS, Japan) Fully illustrated with original images (not stock photography!), the story features truly inspiring characters and connects the dots between the seemingly unconnected. Readers will be globe trotting: from Detroit, where fascinating communities of makers have taken matters into their own hands (following the city’s bankruptcy), to London’s uber gentrified neighbourhood of Shoreditch where generations of artists and creative types have acted as its advance troops, from underground market gardeners using left over coffee beans to grow mushrooms in Paris to roof top urban farmers in Hong Kong, from raves in St Petersburg to citizenship protests in New York City, from fashion parties to fashionable clubs and many more. What all the protagonists have in common is their vision to generate (economic) value whilst also creating value for society and their ability to influence brands and corporate businesses to follow suit. This generation of Innovators drove the climate and social inclusivity that started to dominate the corporate and societal agenda in the years following the COVID pandemic. The ideas for the model were developed over three decades, which we call 'cool cycles of reinvention'. The first two decades (1987 – 2007) were presented in The First to Know (how hipsters and mavericks shape the zeitgeist - see here: Ideas were then put to test in real time over a third (2007 – 2017). The cultural framework proved reliable and The 2.5% was born, introducing the-first-to-know innovation diffusion model. Like the visionary characters it celebrates, The 2.5% is breaking new grounds. It doesn’t fit categories. It doesn’t lend itself to ticking boxes. The story goes on...It doesn't stop with the book! #the2point5percent

Cabarets of Death by Mel Gordon Pdf

Three idiosyncratically macabre cabaret-restaurants in Monmartre, each with its own grotesque portrayal of the afterworlds of Hell, Heaven, and Nothingness. From 1892 until 1954, three cabaret-restaurants in the Montmartre district of Paris captivated tourists with their grotesque portrayals of death in the afterworlds of Hell, Heaven, and Nothingness. Each had specialized cuisines and morbid visual displays with flashes of nudity and shocking optical illusions. These cabarets were considered the most curious and widely featured amusements in the city. Entrepreneurs even hawked graphic postcards of their ironic spectacles and otherworldly interiors. Cabarets of Death documents the dinner shows, the character interactions with guests, and the theatrical goings-on in these unique establishments. Presenting original images and drawings from contemporary journals, postcards, tourist brochures, and menus, Mel Gordon leads a tour of these idiosyncratically macabre institutions, and grants us unique access to a form of popular spectacle now gone.

Oy Oy Oy Gevalt! by Michael Croland Pdf

Step inside a fascinating world of Jews who relate to their Jewishness through the vehicle of punk—from prominent figures in the history of punk to musicians who proudly put their Jewish identity front and center. Why did punk—a subculture and music style characterized by a rejection of established norms—appeal to Jews? How did Jews who were genuinely struggling with their Jewish identity find ways to express it through punk rock? Oy Oy Oy Gevalt! Jews and Punk explores the cultural connections between Jews and punk in music and beyond, documenting how Jews were involved in the punk movement in its origins in the 1970s through the present day. Author Michael Croland begins by broadly defining what the terms "Jewish" and "punk" mean. This introduction is followed by an exploration of the various ways these ostensibly incompatible identities can gel together, addressing topics such as Jewish humor, New York City, the Holocaust, individualism, "tough Jews," outsider identity, tikkun olam ("healing the world"), and radicalism. The following chapters discuss prominent Jews in punk, punk rock bands that overtly put their Jewishness on display, and punk influences on other types of Jewish music—for example, klezmer and Hasidic simcha (celebration) music. The book also explores ways that Jewish and punk culture intersect beyond music, including documentaries, young adult novels, zines, cooking, and rabbis.
