For over 30 years Frederick Wiseman has trained his camera on American life and institutions, having no obvious polemical stance but merely observing, sometimes in minute detail, what he finds. He shoots for many hours, so that his subjects begin to ignore the camera, and edits the collected material for much longer. The surprise is that what he finds is often nothing like what we, or even he, might expect. Welfare was filmed at New York City's obviously overburdened Waverly Welfare Center in lower Manhattan. Shot over four-week period in February and March of 1973 and released in 1975, the ironically titled Welfare presents a series of encounters between welfare workers and applicants and clients. The film views the welfare system as an overloaded bureaucratic nightmare in which genuine need is sometimes indistinguishable from freeloading.

Music hall & modernity: the late-Victorian discovery of popular culture.

Barry J. Faulk, "Music hall & modernity: the late-Victorian discovery of popular culture".
Publisher: Ohio University Press | ISBN: 0821415859 | 2004 edition | PDF | 256 Pages | 2.12 MB

The Late-Victorian Discovery Of The Music Hall by English intellectuals marks a crucial moment in the history of popular culture. Music Hall and Modernity demonstrates how such pioneering cultural critics as Arthur Symons and Elizabeth Robins Pennell used the music hall to secure and promote their professional identity as guardians of taste and national welfare. These social arbiters were, at the same time, devotees of the spontaneous culture of "the people." In examining fiction from Walter Besant, Hall Caine, and Henry Nevinson, performance criticism from William Archer and Max Beerbohm…

Swiss group Oz Urugulu is one of the most original and exciting bands out there today. Citing weird food, old video games, and bad movies as major influences, the band is a mixed bag of odd styles and approaches. In zappaesque fashion, the instrumental Oz Urugulu demonstrate with their uncompromising and self-ironic second album "Fashion and Welfare", how the most adverse genres can be melted into something quite wonderful. Prog rock, jazz, oriental or film music - this band is hard to put your finger on. Immerse yourself for 56 minutes into these carefully crafted and joyfully experimental compositions.

The Governance of Educational Welfare Markets: A Comparative Analysis of the European Social Fund in Five Countries by Daniel Pop
English | Feb. 19, 2015 | ISBN: 3034318995 | 250 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

This book is a first exploratory inquiry into possible educational selectivity effects of the European Social Fund (ESF). It assesses the extent of the gap between the social policy objectives set through regulatory competences in multi-level governance and the structure of incentives it breeds in practice, with a broad range of implications for the capacity of the government to control for an equitable distribution of services at the community level.
