Five women entered the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow and began a performance of a "Punk Prayer." Young people fried eggs on the eternal flame near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Ukraine. A small island in the Japan Sea provoked a diplomatic spat between the leadership of Japan and South Korea. All of these incidents are examples of politically motivated insults that escalated into surprisingly significant clashes. While the field of conflict analysis has looked extensively at the dynamics of insults between individuals, it has largely ignored the more complicated dynamics of insult committed between groups, often of uneven political and social power. In this book, Karina V. Korostelina offers a novel framework for analyzing the ways in which seemingly minor insults between ethnic groups, nations, and other types of groups escalate to disproportionately violent behavior and political conflict. Insult can take many forms. Yet, as this book shows, it is always a social act mutually defined between groups, and it has the power to destabilize and redefine social and power hierarchies. Korostelina identifies six different drivers of political insults, producing a theoretical model for analyzing intergroup insult and conflict. She uses her model to explore each of the incidents above, among other recent conflicts, to explicate the complicated dynamics that figure within them. The book concludes with practical suggestions for analyzing and resolving complex conflict situations.

Wrestling is one of the most grueling combative contests in sports. The challenge is the one-on-one battle inside the 38 circle. It can be a tough challenge that takes everything you have; both physically, and mentally. What does it take to train and condition to compete against the best, straining every fiber against a determined, skilled adversary for six long minutes? What price are you willing to pay to prepare for such a battle? When have you done enough to gain that rare commodity: confidence? Let Kerry L. Hymans Scramble on the Edge take you on a fascinating wrestling adventure. The story revolves around a bunch of high school wrestlers who work hard to reach their wrestling goals set in a town whose in-crowd finds their fulfillment in the pursuit of instant gratification. Driven by the fanatical coach of the feeder program whose passion is fueled from the regrets of his own squandered youth, they buy into a radical wrestling commitment that propels them to the top. The story focuses on Jason Grable, a wrestler who has done everything right in his pursuit of a State Wrestling Title only to find adversity from places he never expected: a jealous co-captain, an indifferent school culture, academic deadlines and time restraints, a girlfriend who doesnt get it, and even his high school coach. Everything comes to a head during his final post season, juggling crisis upon crisis, careening on a collision course with the returning State Champ. It is a story about wrestling, but it is a compelling study of the energy it takes to propel a program from obscurity to the top, and the human bonds forged in an atmosphere of total commitment, love and the power of friendship. It is also a story of betrayal and the politics of high school sports.

From high school cafeterias to the floor of Congress, insult is a truly universal and ubiquitous cultural practice with a long and earthy history. And yet, this most human of human behaviors has rarely been the subject of organized and comprehensive attention—until Toward a Rhetoric of Insult. Viewed through the lens of the study of rhetoric, insult, Thomas M. Conley argues, is revealed as at once antisocial and crucial for human relations, both divisive and unifying. Explaining how this works and what exactly makes up a rhetoric of insult prompts Conley to range across the vast and splendidly colorful history of offense. Taking in Monty Python, Shakespeare, Eminem, Cicero, Henry Ford, and the Latin poet Martial, Conley breaks down various types of insults, examines the importance of audience, and explores the benign side of abuse. In doing so, Conley initiates readers into the world of insult appreciation, enabling us to regard insults not solely as means of expressing enmity or disdain, but as fascinating aspects of human interaction.

In the early nineteenth century China remained almost untouched by British and European powers - but as new technology started to change this balance, foreigners gathered like wolves around the weakening Qing Empire. Would the Chinese suffer the fate of much of the rest of the world, carved into pieces by Europeans? Or could they adapt rapidly enough to maintain their independence? This important and compelling book explains the roots of China's complex relationship with the West by illuminating a dramatic, colourful and sometimes shocking period of the country's history.
