100 Dutch-Language Poems offers a wonderful new resource to poetry lovers around the world. It covers more than a millennium of poetry; from the very first written words in Dutch, a poem probably scribbled in the 11th century by a Dutch-speaking scribe in England to try out his pen, to the last poem by a young, spirited, award-winning twenty-first century female poet.Paul Vincent and John Irons have opted to restrict their selection to one poem per poet, no matter how important the poet. They used their own extensive knowledge of Dutch poetry to make a selection of classic, innovative and influential poems which together represent poetry from the Low Countries throughout the ages. They made a special effort to achieve the right balance in terms of earlier versus later, male versus female and North versus South.All poems, with one exception, have been translated into English by award-winning translators Paul Vincent and John Irons. They have decided to include the original Dutch poems with the translated versions thereby adding an extra dimension to this remarkable publication.Guido Gezelle's 't Er viel 'ne keer (A Little Leaf Once Fluttered) has been translated by Francis Jones using an English dialect. Paul and John have written a foreword full of interesting details about the selection process. Gaston Franssen, assistant professor of Literary Culture at the University of Amsterdam, has added an afterword in which he discusses how the Low Countries landscape has influenced Dutch-language poetry.

4. Ad Dekkers [2015]

Book
80 p. : ill. (chiefly col.) ; 22 cm.
  • Connaissez-vous Ad Dekkers ? Eric Morin -- Ad Dekkers ou la quête de l'essentiel -- Ad Dekkers Op zoek naar de essentie Piet Augustijn -- Ad Dekkers : In search of the essence Piet Augustijn -- Biographie -- Eric Morin -- Données documentaires -- Françoise Pineau -- Sélection d'oeuvres.
"A la fin des années 1960, la ville de Gorinchem dans le sud des Pays-Bas accueille des artistes plasticiens dont la renommée ira croissant. Pour Ad Dekkers, l'un des sept, ils sont les "koele minnaars" faisant preuve d'une "passion raisonnée" pour explorer la lumière, la couleur, les formes et l'espace. ur un peu plus de 10 ans, Ad Dekkers développe une production abondante et originale qui met en valeur les reliefs, les sculptures et les dessins. Exigeant et rigoureux, il abandonne un à un tous les éléments plastiques qui lui paraissent superflus dans sa mise en valeur de l'espace. Il est en quête de l'essentiel. Ce lien très fort entre questionnements sur le sens de ta vie et travail artistique constitue l'un des traits distinctifs d'Ad Dekkers. Artiste reconnu dans les mondes germaniques et anglo-saxons, il jouit d'une influence limitée dans les pays francophones. Cette publication partiellement trilingue (français, néerlandais, anglais) est l'occasion de découvrir ou redécouvrir l'artiste et de disposer des éléments d'une rétrospective de son oeuvre."--P. [4] of cover.

Anton Corbijn Inside Out is an intimate and revealing portrait of an influential artist and the result of almost four years of filming by director Klaartje Quirijns. Inside Out examines Anton’s youth and current life and, so doing, searches for the source and meaning of the themes in his life and work: sacrifice, fame, religion and death. The film shows what drives him and what his ideas are on the modern icons that he has created. For the first time Corbijn has granted full access to his life and contacts. "...paints a piercing and poignant portrait of a visionary talent, and the complex forces that drive him." - Cara Nash, FILMINK. "Shot with verve and panache - in a style that Corbijn himself would surely approve" - Dainel Green, Cine Vue. "Insightful, entertaining and eye-opening to a world of glamour and celebrity" - Jamie Garwood, NextToTheAisle.com.

In the sixteenth century, Antwerp developed into an international commercial capital. The city's appearance changed very quickly. Using views of the city, maps and historical prints, the exhibition Drawing the city follows Antwerp's varying fortunes during this turbulent period. Using maps and plans, Drawing the city follows the rapid development of Antwerp in the sixteenth century. Some maps have an underlying purpose: to glorify the city and draw attention to its special qualities. Historical prints and maps portray the city during dramatic events such as the destruction of religious images known as the Beeldenstorm and the Spanish Fury, but in peaceful scenes too, such as Joyous Entries and ice scenes, artists provide a detailed portrait of the city.

10. Black Out. [2013]

Video
1 online resource (1 video file, approximately 92 minutes) : digital, .flv file, sound Sound: digital. Digital: video file; MPEG-4; Flash.
If Guy Ritchie made THE HANGOVER in Amsterdam, it might look something like Black Out, an audacious crime thriller laced with colorful lowlifes, tough femmes fatales, corrupt cops, and outbursts of extreme violence. On the day before his wedding, retired criminal Jos wakes up next to a murdered man with no recollection of what happened the night before. He soon discovers that a group of gangsters have pinned him as the lone suspect in the theft of 20 kilos of coke. He’s got to get it back in 24 hours, or the life of his bride will be in serious danger. Now he has no choice but to creep back into his dangerous old world of petty thieves and drug dealers – all before his wedding the next day. Helmed by Dutch director Arne Toonen, Black Out is a film full of brash style, visual panache and edge-of your-seat excitement.

"Exilé politique durant de longues années en Belgique, Teddy Mazina choisit à son retour de s'engager en tant que photographe dans le débat démocratique au Burundi. Toujours en noir et blanc, ses photos, à la fois simples et de grande qualité artistique, constituent des archives exceptionnelles de la vie sociopolitique de son pays. Activiste de la mémoire, Teddy nous offre à travers ce livre des images parfois poignantes, parfois festives mais surtout éclairantes sur le Burundi d'aujourd'hui, encore convalescent, balloté entre espoir et déception."--P. [4] of cover.

  • Chapter 1 An introduction to state interventions in single-mother families-- Chapter 2 Upon whom are we focusing? Defining a 'multi-problem family' in theory and the consequences for social workers in practice-- Chapter 3 Caught in the Child Protection System: the impact of institutional diagnosis for Dutch and Dutch-Curacaoan single-mother families in the Netherlands-- Chapter 4 In whose interest? An analysis of exemplary interaction between a family supervisor and a Dutch-Curacaoan single mother-- Chapter 5 'Dancing in Dry Rain': ethics during situated fieldwork in single-mother child protection families-- Chapter 6 Disentangling an invisible trade: state intervention in Dutch and Dutch-Curacaoan single-mother families in the Netherlands.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
This book sheds light on the interactional and institutional processes through which child welfare and child protection practices are delivered to fifteen Dutch and fifteen Dutch-Curacaoan single-mother families with multiple problems in the Netherlands in order to assess structures of power, dominance and oppression. It is important to 'Disentangle an invisible trade', because state intervention practices remain largely 'invisible' from the public gaze.The author draws on a thirty-month ethnographic study, undertaken with the single-mother families between 2009 and 2012, in order to demonstrate how state interventions are carried out in these families. Using the empirically grounded theory of Agar (1985) on institutional discourse, the book addresses the question of how state interventions are shaped by institutional discourse and power asymmetries in encounters between single-mother families with multiple problems and state representatives.The different chapters of the book aim to unravel the 'invisible trade'phenomena step-by-step, descending from the macro-level via the meso and micro- to the ego-level. It does so through the combined ethnographic critical discourse analytical framework, which the author has developed for the analysis of empirical data upon which the chapters are drawn. All four levels together make transparent how institutional discourse is (re)produced and constituted within sites of a larger system, which is influenced by power asymmetries.

Risk taking in business contributes towards innovation. Yet excessive risk taking is associated with corporate failure. Many authors have analysed the relationship between personal liability rules of managers and excessive risk taking. In this context, previous researchers have often argued that insurance against personal liability of the manager (D&O insurance) would weaken the manager's incentive to take care. However, little is known about the workings and effects of D&O insurance. This book analyses how D&O insurance should work ideally and how it currently works in the USA, the UK, the Netherlands and Germany. It illustrates how D&O insurance threatens - but also benefits - society and the economy. In fact, a properly functioning D&O insurance system can more elegantly incentivize adequate risk taking than for example, direct regulation of managerial activity (e.g. disqualification) or the adoption of harsher liability rules. This book provides an overview of the implications of D&O insurance, in particular to: - policy makers who can take concrete reform proposals from this book; - investors who can increase their returns by using the information on corporate D&O insurance policies; - creditors who can better estimate their debtor's default risk by understanding the debtor's D&O insurance policy; and - finally, prospective insurers who can learn in depth about the D&O market, the policy design and the D&O risk.
