   Abstract = {© 2019 Elsevier Inc. This paper explores determinants of
             manufactured housing park (MHP)plot rents in North Carolina,
             with particular focus on the distinction among high-growth
             urban parks and small town/rural parks, and on the possible
             role played by zoning restrictiveness. Little is known about
             how MHP rents are determined, even though it is estimated
             that more than 10 million Americans live in MHPs. We
             implement a hedonic model and an instrumental variables
             approach to examine the relationship between MHP rents and
             local housing markets, land use restrictions, and other
             factors. We find that, contrary to expectations, zoning is
             strongly negatively associated with park rents in periurban
             and rural parks, but appears as a positive driver in
             high-growth cities. We then extend this model to an
             out-of-sample prediction for MHPs rents in

   Abstract = {© 2018, © 2018 Southseries Inc. Throughout Eurasia, bride
             kidnapping continues to be a fairly common way to get
             married. The practice is becoming increasingly
             controversial. Some local actors argue the practice is a
             cultural tradition, while others question its acceptability,
             particularly when a woman is forced to marry against her
             will. Many scholars, journalists and non-governmental
             organization workers view non-consensual variations of bride
             kidnapping as a form of gender-based violence. In October
             2016, an interdisciplinary group of scholars gathered at the
             annual Central Eurasia Studies Society conference to assess
             existing scholarship on bride kidnapping in post-Soviet
             Eurasia. Using an innovative format, this paper offers an
             edited transcript of that roundtable discussion. The
             roundtable format provides readers an opportunity to see a
             diverse range of perspectives and opinions in response to
             several questions about bride kidnapping. This paper
             provides a thorough introduction to key issues surrounding
             bride kidnapping and offers suggestions for areas that need
             further exploration.},

             by Blackwell Publishing Ltd This article is based on a panel
             discussion on the contribution of the economics of
             transition literature to the broader understanding of
             economic and social development. All panel participants have
             been working in the field for decades and made important
             contributions to this literature. The transition experience
             was a social experiment on a scale not seen before, and many
             lessons were learned that travel beyond the specific region.
             Important contributions in areas such as political economy,
             contract theory, and the sequencing and complementarity of
             reforms were discussed. It was concluded that there is
             little reason at this point to consider economics of
             transition and development economics as separate subfields
             as they share the same intellectual objective, and
             complement each other in our understanding of the
             development process.},

             analysis of hilliness effects in American urban communities.
             Using data from seventeen cities, we establish robust
             relationships between topography and density, income and
             housing value gradients. We find that high-income households
             display strong preference not only for higher altitude but
             also for unevenness, leading to spatial income
             stratification at both the city and tract-level. We analyze
             potential causes of this propensity: micro-climate, crime,
             congestion, view effects, and use of public transit. We
             conclude that multi-dimensional spatial methods are crucial
             to investigations of cities with substantial unevenness.

             utilise popular music in their films has enjoyed relative
             popularity among Polish scholars, the way in which
             contemporary filmmakers transgress boundaries between

             authorial strategies in other screen genres has not entered
             academic debates yet. The aim of this article is twofold.
             First, I will provide an overview of the marginalised
             position that the music video genre occupies in
             Polish-language academic discourse and suggest a few reasons
             for this negligence. Secondly, I focus here in particular on
             a comparison of the visual approaches and strategies
             prevalent in music videos directed by two notable
             contemporary Polish filmmakers: Jan Jakub Kolski and
             Wojciech Smarzowski. I will position their music videos in
             the context of their film production, arguing that their
             work for the music industry is an extension of their
             distinctive cinematic worlds and that it affects both the
             film language and the aesthetics of the music video genre

   Abstract = {Jacob & Esau is a profound new account of two millennia of
             Jewish European history which, for the first time,
             integrates the cosmopolitan narrative of the Jewish
             intelligentsia with that of traditional Jews and Jewish
             culture. Malachi Hacohen uses the biblical story of the
             rival twins, Jacob and Esau, and its subsequent retelling by
             Christians and Jews through the ages as lens through which
             to illuminate changing Jewish–Christian relations and the
             opening and closing of opportunities for Jewish life in
             Europe. Jacob & Esau tells a new history of a people
             accustomed for over two-and-a-half millennia to forming
             relationships, real and imagined, with successive empires
             but eagerly adapting, in modernity, to the nation-state, and
             experimenting with both assimilation and Jewish nationalism.
             In rewriting this history via Jacob and Esau, the book
             charts two divergent but intersecting Jewish histories that

   Abstract = {© The Author(s) 2019. In The Open Society, written in New
             Zealand during WWII, Karl Popper invented the cosmopolitan
             democratic empire as an antidote to ethnonationalism.
             Popper, a non-Marxist socialist, protested that the
             nation-state was a charade and, in his portrayal of
             classical Athens, merged the images of Austria-Hungary and
             the British Commonwealth into a utopian democratic empire.
             The empire was an open society that would provide a home to
             the assimilated Jewish intelligentsia, which was excluded on
             racial grounds from the European nation-states. Jews were
             not to expect, however, recognition of their culture:
             Assimilation remained the best solution to the Jewish
             Question. Emerging from Jewish anxiety, Popper’s
             cosmopolitanism formed a marvelous imperial vision that
             failed to allay his own fears of antisemitism.},
