The London bombings and the myths on "terrorism"
Takis Fotopoulos
International Journal of Inclusive Democracy , 2006,
Abstract: The London bombings were the catalyst for the transnational elite to launch a huge propaganda campaign —with the usual help of their fellow-travelers in the reformist Left— in order to sling mud at the defensive struggle against them by the self-appointed ‘martyrs’ of the Arab nation. As I have tried to show elsewhere,[1] the transnational elite has been engaged in the mass murder of the peoples of the Middle East and Central Asia since the first Gulf war, for the sake of integrating the region, with its rich energy sources, into the New World Order (NWO) of capitalist neoliberal globalisation. The cycle of political violence began, as has always been the case in History, with capitalist systemic violence, either economic or political and military. This violence has inevitably led to political counter-violence, which today has spread extensively, following the huge dimensions taken by systemic violence in the NWO in the aftermath of the collapse of the opposing pole represented by the Soviet bloc. In this context, any movement or regime characterised by the transnational elite as ‘rogue’ because it does not promptly adjust to the NWO faces brutal military intervention, irrespective of International Law niceties.
Archaeology and the London Thames: past, present and future
Jane Sidell
Archaeology International , 2001, DOI: 10.5334/ai.0505
Abstract: Throughout London's history the Thames has functioned as the city's main artery, but the archaeology of the river and its floodplain has, until recently, attracted relatively little attention. Now a wealth of new evidence of changes in prehistoric land use, vegetation and sea level is being recovered, some of which is relevant to present-day policies of river management.
A capital concern: the Institute and London's archaeology
Gustav Milne
Archaeology International , 1998, DOI: 10.5334/ai.0205
Abstract: One of the Institute of Archaeology's main aims, as expressed in its mission statement (p.3), is "to play a major role in furthering the understanding of London's archaeological and historical past". Here a member of the Institute's staff, who has made many contributions to the study of London's past, summarizes the history of the Institute's involvement in the archaeology of the capital, and looks to the future.
Brick Lane Patchwork
Emanuele Monegato
Altre Modernità , 2009,
Abstract: The essay Brick Lane Patchwork takes its roots in the consideration that the most effective cultural representations of London Brick Lane are explicitly or implicitly linked to the nature of a patchwork. Many contemporary cultural representations made a vain and ambitious effort to portray the real soul(s) of Brick Lane, without taking into consideration its complexity and, therefore, delivering a distinctive image of the area as if it was a single piece of cloth, not a whole quilt. Starting from already existing cultural representations of Brick Lane (Monica Ali's first novel Brick Lane and its filmic adaptation directed by Sarah Gavron, the poetic memoir Salaam Brick Lane - a Year in the New East End and the short film Brick Lane by Paul Makkar, which are going to be privileged squared cloths to be sewn in the above mentioned patchwork), the aim of this essay is both to detect its proper cultural representations and to sew an imaginative patchwork quilt, a new and multiple image of this London area enhancing its hybrid soul(s), its blending procedure and contemporary facets.

On the Accusative Weapon of the Poetic Image of London in William Blake’s London against the Brutalities of English Realities  [PDF]
Jun Luo, Guijun Li
Advances in Literary Study (ALS) , 2018, DOI: 10.4236/als.2018.62008
Abstract: Although he has not been accepted as a famous English poet by the mainstream consciousness of his poetic production at his age, William Blake is now extensively regarded as one of the earliest and greatest figures who have pioneered the early romanticism in English literature. His typical poems have been discussed for a long time from various perspectives but the role of the image of London in his emblematic poem London has rarely been touched by scholars to make an exploration of the critical spirits of the poet. To attach an academic importance on the academic values in this respect, this essay will take London as an analytical sample to justify that the image of London in William Blake’s London can be taken as an accusative weapon against the social brutalities of England in reference to the social reality of that repressive time based on a better analysis of the image of London in this poem from the perspective of reflectionism in terms of the social oppression, class repression, religious misconduct as much as liberal exploitation of English society as what can be seen in the poetic images of this poem.

Dream Isle
C. J. Lim
Opticon1826 , 2009, DOI: 10.5334/opt.060904
Abstract: London is a city and cities are alive. They breathe, they grow, they spawn, they die and they dream. This is London’s dream. Feeding on the memories of its visitors and cosmopolitan populace, London’s dreams traverse icons such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, the Houses of Parliament, Primrose Hill, Trafalgar Square and the green courts of Wimbledon, but not as we know them. In these dreams, the city is protagonist, and this is how it sees itself.
The Place of Bloomsbury in the Novels of George Gissing
Richard Dennis
Opticon1826 , 2009, DOI: 10.5334/opt.070903
Abstract: The Victorian novelist, George Gissing, is not often associated with Bloomsbury. Yet among his twenty-three novels published between 1880 and 1905, at least nine contain scenes set in the area between Oxford Street and Euston Road, Tottenham Court Road and Gray’s Inn Road. We do not need a novelist to tell us about the topography of Victorian London or even to describe the conditions in which Londoners lived: there are more than enough social surveys, tourist guides and journalistic ‘explorations’ of ‘how the poor live’. But novels are invaluable in showing how the spaces of the city were perceived and used and how the city was ‘performed’ in everyday practice. So in this paper I am interested in how Gissing made use of the area’s geography and how his characters moved through Bloomsbury and the wider metropolis at a variety of scales.
