"Family rhythms is the first textbook of its kind with an explicit focus on Ireland and Irish families. Uniquely, the book draws on original in-depth interviews with people of different ages to introduce contemporary scholarship on the family and to illustrate how Irish families have adapted and changed over time. With chapters on childhood, adolescence, parenting and grandparenthood, the book shows the resilience of families in different social and historical contexts. Each chapter includes a discussion of the challenges that face families and how social research can inform policy makers' responses. Family rhythms is a comprehensive, user-friendly textbook that offers a variety of strategies for engaging readers, including direct encounters with qualitative data through the use of classroom oriented discussion panels. Synopses of landmark Irish studies are included throughout, bringing the insights from these key studies together in a single textbook for the first time."

Review:


"O'Shaughnessy's book is nuanced, insightful and an important contribution to the study of contemporary political cinema." - Jessica Livingston, Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, H-France Review Vol. 17, March 2017


"While every chapter of the volume charts a compelling path through Cantet's work,
the probing critical analysis in the chapter devoted to Vers le sud is particularly rewarding." - Laura McMahon, Gonville & Caius College, Cambridge, Contmporary French Civilization


"This study provides students and scholars of contemporary French social cinema with a useful key to understand the reinvention of political cinema in France since the mid-1990s."
Audrey Evrard, Fordham University, Modern and Contemporary France


"The publication offers a wide-ranging and scrupulous evaluation of the filmic, the
social and the political contexts in which Cantet operates. It conveys with an acute awareness how he has become one of France's most exciting working directors. Indexed, complete with thirteen illustrations, a detailed filmography and suggestions for further reading, O'Shaughnessy's Laurent Cantet will provide a rich trove of information for all those with an interest in contemporary France, and its cinematic output specifically." - Ally Lee, University of Warwick, Alphaville Journal of Film and Screen Media, Issue 11


"O'Shaughnessy's writing is clear and engaging, and his discussions move supply between filmic material, theoretical reference points and contextual French political and cultural issues. In its elucidation of Cantet's work through a cogent interdisciplinary framework, this is an addition to scholarship on contemporary French cinema that feels as punctual as the film-making with which it engages." - Rhiannon Harries, University of Cambridge, New Review of Film and Television Studies

Book Description Manchester Univ Pr. Hardcover. Condition: New. 192 pages. Dimensions: 0.0in. x 0.0in. x 0.0in.Laurent Cantet is of one Frances leading contemporary directors. He probes the evolution and fault-lines of contemporary society, from the home to the workplace and from the Republican school to globalised consumption more acutely than perhaps any other French film-maker. His films always put his characters on the spot, challenging their assumptions about the world they live in. But, they also demand that the spectator rethink their own position in relation to what they are seeing. This is what makes Cantet such an important film-maker. Written by Martin OShaughnessy, a leading specialist on French film in general and political cinema in particular, this is the first book-length study of Cantets work in English. It explores his unique working method, and discusses his very particular way of constructing films at the uneasy interface of the individual, the group and the broader social context. It goes on to show how the roots of his well-known later films can be found in his little studied early works. It then explores all his major fictions from Ressources humaines to the recent Foxfire, combining careful close analysis with attention to broader cinematic, social and political contexts. The book takes a particular interest in how Cantets work helps us rethink the possibilities and limits of political cinema in a context in which old resistances have fallen silent and new forms of protest are only emergent. It will appeal to all those with an interest in French and European film as well as those who study contemporary France. This item ships from multiple locations.
