This important new book investigates how the West
attained its current position of economic and social
advantage. In an incisive historical analysis, Jack Goody
examines when and why Europe (and Anglo-America) started
to outstrip all other continents in socio-economic
growth. Drawing on non-Western examples of economic and
technical progress, Goody challenges assumptions about
long-term European supremacy of a -cultural- kind, as was
a feature of many theories current in social science. He
argues that the divergence came with the Industrial
Revolution and that the earlier bourgeois revolution of
the sixteenth century was but one among many Eurasia-wide
expressions of developing mercantile and manufacturing

moving and talking, skill and the formation of knowledge,
metaphor, perception and the senses, movement literacy,
the constitution of space and place, and narrative

This book presents a journey to the Italian cinema that
overturns established views and opens up new perspectives
and interpretations. Its itinerary is organized in four
stages. The first is an analysis of the theories of
Cesare Zavattini on neorealism which overturns widely
accepted positions both on Zavattini and on neorealism.
The second confronts a key film of the post-war Italian
cinema, Roberto Rossellini-s Paisa, by examining the
nature of its realism. The third is dedicated to Luchino
Visconti: to questions of the use of language exemplified
in his La terra trema, the use of settings, costume and
light as agents of meaning in his Il Gattopardo and Vaghe
stelle dell-Orsa. The final voyage of the film is to the
physical and symbolic construction of heaven and earth in
the work of Pasolini.
