This book investigates the narrativity of some of the most popular survival horror video games and the gender politics implicit in their storyworlds. In a thorough analysis of the genre that draws upon detailed comparisons with the mainstream action genre, Andrei Nae places his analysis firmly within a political and social context. In comparing survival horror games to the dominant game design norms of the action genre, the author differentiates between classical and postclassical survival horror games to show how the former reject the norms of the action genre and deliver a critique of the conservative gender politics of action games, while the latter are more heterogeneous in terms of their game design and, implicitly, gender politics. This book will appeal not only to scholars working in game studies, but also to scholars of horror, gender studies, popular culture, visual arts, genre studies and narratology.

Survival Game by Gary Gibson is the second book in the gripping apocalyptic duology that began with Extinction Game. Katya is a scientist, working on a classified project for the Russian Empire. She's also desperate. Her bosses want to exploit her knowledge and send her on an incredible, dangerous mission. And if she refuses, her father's life will be forfeit. Katya must retrieve an artefact that will grant new life to the dying Russian tsar. She's therefore being sent deep undercover on an alternate version of Earth, to an American-controlled island. Here Borodin, the tsar's spymaster, will be watching her. On the island Katya and Jerry, an American adventurer, form an uneasy alliance. They discover the artefact will call down terror from the depths of space, yet Katya's superiors refuse to listen. But Katya and Jerry's worlds face extinction, so the artefact must be destroyed - at any cost. Two civilizations depend upon it.

The gods of Olympus died with the advent of Christianity - or so we have been taught to believe. But how are we to account for their tremendous popularity during the Renaissance? This illustrated book, now reprinted in a new, larger paperback format, offers the general reader a multifaceted look at the far-reaching role played by mythology in Renaissance intellectual and emotional life. After a discussion of mythology in late antiquity and the Middle Ages, Jean Seznec traces the fate of the gods from Botticelli and Raphael to their function and appearance in Ronsard's verses and Ben Jonson's masques.

Nigeria faces endemic corruption and significant ethnic tension. Trouble is brewing, and author Arnold Obomanu knows something must be done. In The Survival Mindset he provides a simple and powerful explanation for many of the contradictions that perplex Nigerians and friends of Nigeria. Using examples from everyday Nigerian life, Obomanu illustrates how major problems such as corruption, ethnicity and loss of traditional values derive from the same core problem of a scarcity mentality. He then shows how a systematic strategy can be developed to tackle these issues on a national level. This study digs deep to unearth valuable insights, such as the ideas that ethnicity provides social security for the average Nigerian and that corruption is mainly propagated by poor public service delivery. The Survival Mindset tackles major issues in one of the most complex developing countries in the world, demonstrates the method in the madness, and outlines principles useful in understanding and tackling similar problems in other African and developing countries. It empowers readers to reengage in building Nigeria with renewed vigour, clarity and enthusiasm.

This is the first comprehensive study of Hadendowa Beja pastoralism in Sinkat Province, Eastern Suda. The book discusses the effects of the drought in the 1980s and shows the strategies for survival and for pastoral rehabilitation. The various chapters deal with the effects of drought and of human activities on the natural environment; how pastoral migration patterns were affected and how links to commodity and labour markets aggravated the effects of drought; socio-cultural changes are dealt with as well, following increased interaction between regional populations. The final chapter discusses planning problems in the region and argues that in areas such as the Red Sea Hills, the recurrent pastoral disasters cannot be blamed only on the pastoralists and their activities, but must be related to wider economic and political contexts, in which the pastoral groups are becoming increasingly marginalised. The book is based on material from the Red Sea Area Programme, a joint research venture between the universities of Khartoum and Bergen.
