Debate in Early English Poetry and Drama
Series:  Ludus, Volume: 17
Performing Arguments: Debate in Early English Poetry and Drama proposes a fresh performance-centered view of rhetoric by recovering, tracing, and analyzing the trope and tradition of aestheticized argumentation as a mode of performance across several early ludic genres: Middle English debate poetry, the fifteenth-century ‘disguising’ play, the Tudor Humanist debate interlude, and four Shakespearean works in which the dynamics of debate invite the plays’ reconsideration under the new rubric of ‘rhetorical problem plays.’ Performing Arguments further establishes a distinction between instrumental argumentation, through which an arguer seeks to persuade an opponent or audience, and performative argumentation, through which the arguer provides an aesthetic display of verbal or intellectual skill with persuasion being of secondary concern, or of no concern at all. This study also examines rhetorical and performance theories and practices contemporary with the early texts and genres explored, and is further influenced by more recent critical perspectives on resonance and reception and theories of audience response and reconstruction.
The Emerging Ecclesiology of a Precarious Denomination
Author:
The growth of Global Pentecostalism in the past century has been studied and documented from many perspectives. Its leadership, culture and ecclesiology, however, has received scant academic and theological attention. This book based on an extensive research study of the Assemblies of God of Great Britain (AoG) could not be more timely, conducted as AoG entered its centenery decade and faced the challenges that its historic culture and leadership dynamics posed.

The leadership struggles discussed in this book will resonate with any denomination that has grown or wrestled with polity, leadership and culture.
A Complex Relationship

Colours make the map: they affect the map’s materiality, content, and handling. With a wide range of approaches, 14 case studies from various disciplines deal with the colouring of maps from different geographical regions and periods. Connected by their focus on the (hand)colouring of the examined maps, the authors demonstrate the potential of the study of colour to enhance our understanding of the material nature and production of maps and the historical, social, geographical and political context in which they were made.
