Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : By the author of the highly acclaimed Fairweather Eden, and Joint winner of the British Archaeology Press Award.As famous as it is mysterious, Stonehenge lies at the heart of a lost civilization that spanned five centuries, a civilization that now lies mostly beneath the fields of southern England. At nearby Avebury is one of the most extraordinary ancient religious landscapes, and the recently discovered wooden rings at Stanton Drew in Somerset are the biggest of a series of remarkable discoveries that have transformed the way archaeologists think of the great monuments in the region.For the first time in over forty years, an archaeologist presents the story from the inside. Starting at the excavation that followed the collapse of a Stonehenge megalith on the last night of the 19th century, and ending with a dramatic discovery in Avebury at the close of the 20th, Hengeworld explains how recent archaeological discoveries have revolutionized the way we think about these great stone circles and the people who built them. Finally, Pitts shows a pattern emerging from the archaeology of these sites which explains the relationship between them, and he reconstructs the ceremony that would have symbolized this.

Stability Of Happiness: Theories And Evidence On Whether Happiness Can Change

Product : Stability Of Happiness: Theories And Evidence On Whether Happiness Can Change
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The right to pursue happiness is one of the dominant themes of western culture, and understanding the causes of happiness is one of the primary goals of the positive psychology movement. However, before the causality question can even be considered, a more basic question must be addressed: CAN happiness change? Reasons for skepticism include the notion of a genetic set point for happiness, i.e. a stable personal baseline of happiness to which individuals will always return, no matter how much their lives change for the better; the life-span stability of happiness-related traits such as neuroticism and extraversion; and the powerful processes of hedonic adaptation, which erode the positive effects of any fortuitous life change. This book investigates prominent theories on happiness with the research evidence to discuss when and how happiness changes and for how long.Identifies all major theories of happinessReviews empirical results on happiness longevity/stabilityDiscusses mitigating factors in what influences happiness longevity

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Under which conditions do companies engage in the provision of collective goods and services if the state lacks the capacity to do so? To what extent do multinational firms engage in a ''race to the top'' fostering rather than undermining regulation? The empirical analyses in the individual chapters look at business responses to some of South Africa''s most pertinent governance challenges, HIV/AIDS and environmental pollution. The contributors look at firms in four industry sectors: the automotive industry, the mining industry, the food and beverage industry and the textile industry. These four sectors comprise a significant number of foreign as well as local companies, with or without brand name, which cater to different market segments within South Africa, differ in size and are exposed to varying pressure from NGOs and foreign competitors.

Little Magazine, World Form

Product : Little Magazine, World Form
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Little magazines made modernism. These unconventional, noncommercial publications may have brought writers such as James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Marianne Moore, Mina Loy, and Wallace Stevens to the world but, as Eric Bulson shows in Little Magazine, World Form, their reach and importance extended far beyond Europe and the United States. By investigating the global and transnational itineraries of the little-magazine form, Bulson uncovers a worldwide network that influenced the development of literature and criticism in Africa, the West Indies, the Pacific Rim, and South America.In addition to identifying how these circulations and exchanges worked, Bulson also addresses equally formative moments of disconnection and immobility. British and American writers who fled to Europe to escape Anglo-American provincialism, refugees from fascism, wandering surrealists, and displaced communists all contributed to the proliferation of print. Yet the little magazine was equally crucial to literary production and consumption in the postcolonial world, where it helped connect newly independent African nations. Bulson concludes with reflections on the digitization of these defunct little magazines and what it means for our ongoing desire to understand modernism''s global dimensions in the past and its digital afterlife.

The New Industrial Revolution: Consumers, Globalization and the End of Mass Production

Product : The New Industrial Revolution: Consumers, Globalization and the End of Mass Production
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The rapid emergence of China and India as prime locations for low-cost manufacturing has led some analysts to conclude that manufacturers in the old economies—the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan—are being edged out of a profitable future. But if countries that historically have been at the forefront of events in manufacturing can adapt adroitly, opportunities are by no means over, says the author of this timely book. Peter Marsh explores 250 years in the history of manufacturing, then examines the characteristics of the industrial revolution that is taking place right now.The driving forces that influence what types of goods are made and who makes them are little understood, Marsh observes. He discusses the key changes in what is happening in manufacturing today, including advances in technology, a greater focus on tailor-made goods aimed at specific individuals and industry users, participation of many more countries in world manufacturing, and the growing importance of sustainable forms of production. With broad historical sweep and dozens of engaging examples, Marsh explains these changes and their import both for consumers making purchase choices and for manufacturers assessing how to participate successfully in the new industrial era.

Category : Books>Biography and Memoir
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Fifteen years in the making, a landmark reinterpretation of the life of a pivotal figure in British and European history In this magisterial addition to the Yale English Monarchs series, David Bates combines biography and a multidisciplinary approach to examine the life of a major figure in British and European history. Using a framework derived from studies of early medieval kingship, he assesses each phase of William’s life to establish why so many trusted William to invade England in 1066 and the consequences of this on the history of the so-called Norman Conquest after the Battle of Hastings and for generations to come.   A leading historian of the period, Bates is notable for having worked extensively in the archives of northern France and discovered many eleventh- and twelfth-century charters largely unnoticed by English-language scholars. Taking an innovative approach, he argues for a move away from old perceptions and controversies associated with William’s life and the Norman Conquest. This deeply researched volume is the scholarly biography for our generation.

Soldiers and Ghosts: A History of Battle in Classical Antiquity

Product : Soldiers and Ghosts: A History of Battle in Classical Antiquity
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : What set the successful armies of Sparta, Macedon, and Rome apart from those they defeated? In this major new history of battle from the age of Homer through the decline of the Roman empire, J. E. Lendon surveys a millennium of warfare to discover how militaries change—and don’t change—and how an army’s greatness depends on its use of the past. Noting this was an age that witnessed few technological advances, J. E. Lendon shows us that the most successful armies were those that made the most effective use of cultural tradition. Ancient combat moved forward by looking backward for inspiration—the Greeks, to Homer; the Romans, to the Greeks and to their own heroic past. The best ancient armies recruited soldiers from societies with strong competitive traditions; and the best ancient leaders, from Alexander to Julius Caesar, called upon those traditions to encourage ferocious competition at every rank.Ranging from the Battle of Champions between Sparta and Argos in 550 B.C. through Julian’s invasion of Persia in A.D. 363, Soldiers and Ghosts brings to life the most decisive military contests of ancient Greece and Rome. Lendon places these battles, and the methods by which they were fought, in a sweeping narrative of ancient military history. On every battlefield, living soldiers fought alongside the ghosts of tradition—ghosts that would inspire greatness for almost a millennium before ultimately coming to stifle it.

Frederick Barbarossa: The Prince And The Myth

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Frederick Barbarossa, born of two of Germany’s most powerful families, swept to the imperial throne in a coup d’état in 1152. A leading monarch of the Middle Ages, he legalized the dualism between the crown and the princes that endured until the end of the Holy Roman Empire.   This new biography, the first in English in four decades, paints a rich picture of a consummate diplomat and effective warrior. John Freed mines Barbarossa’s recently published charters and other sources to illuminate the monarch’s remarkable ability to rule an empire that stretched from the Baltic to Rome, and from France to Poland. Offering a fresh assessment of the role of Barbarossa’s extensive familial network in his success, the author also considers the impact of Frederick’s death in the Third Crusade as the key to his lasting heroic reputation. In an intriguing epilogue, Freed explains how Hitler’s audacious attack on the Soviet Union in 1941 came to be called “Operation Barbarossa.”

Description : In the early twentieth century, northerners lived and trapped in one of the world’s harshest environments. At a time when government services and social support were minimal or nonexistent, they thrived on the fox fur trade relying on their energy, training, discipline, and skills. John R. Bockstoce, a leading scholar of the Arctic fur trade who also served as a member of an Eskimo whaling crew, explores the history of the Western Arctic fur trade to the outbreak of World War II, covering an immense region from Chukotka, Russia, to Arctic Alaska and the Western Canadian Arctic. This period brought profound changes to Native peoples of the North. To show its enormous impact, the author draws on interviews with trappers and traders, oral and written archival accounts, research in newspapers and periodicals, and his own field notes from 1969 to the present.

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Contemplative Youth Ministry is refreshing rain for dry youth workers and barren youth ministries. More than the same old youth ministry tips and tricks, it gives principles and practices to soak in God''s grace, love, and power. I wish I had read it 15 years ago.- Kara Powell, Ph.D., executive director, Center for Youth Ministry and Family Ministry, Fuller Theological Seminary Mark invites readers to be encountered by the presence of Jesus who is always near. This book is transparent about the challenges that churches and families face as they desire to be effective in youth ministry. The book is filled with the honest stories of different kinds of youth ministries representing the breadth of Christianity in the United States. I heartily endorse Contemplative Youth Ministry as a rich encounter with the souls of youth and adults whoselives have been transformed by our very present God.- Bill Kees, director of youth ministries, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) Mark Yaconelli not only reminds us of some of the long-forgotten pathways of faith, he shares with us how it actually looks when men and women who love God practice it with young people. I especially appreciate Mark''s optimism in his perspective of today''s kids, for his insights are grounded in God''s view of them.- Chap Clark, Ph.D., associate professor of youth, family, and culture, Fuller Theological Seminary Mark Yaconelli was experimenting with contemplative youth ministry practices before contemplative youth ministry practices became cool. This book has about it the unique air of authenticity. He shares with us in these pages his own journey as a youth worker who actually believes that God''s still small voice speaks louder than the roaring windstorm of our busy youth ministry calendars. It''s a book about creating for our students places of silence and opening up spaces for God to speak.- Duffy Robbins, professor of youth ministry, Eastern University; author of Enjoy the Silence and This Way to Youth Ministry Mark Yaconelli has emerged as one of youth ministry''s most provocative ''voices in the wilderness,'' calling us back to our theological taproots: The contemplative practices that bind our lives to the life of Christ. If Mark''s research has taught us anything, it''s that these practices do not cause youth ministry to take fl ight into a spiritual never-never land; rather they anchor young people-and their churches-in the fertile soil of Christian tradition, in the nitty-gritty of daily life, and in the explosive transformation that awaits us when we wait upon God.- Kenda Creasy Dean, parent, pastor, and professor of youth, Princeton Theological Seminary; author of Practicing Passion: Youth and the Quest for a Passionate Church

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : From Beckett to Burroughs, The Story of O to The Autobiography of Malcolm X, an iconic literary troublemaker tells the colorful stories behind the storiesRichard Seaver came to Paris in 1950 seeking Hemingway''s moveable feast. Paris had become a different city, traumatized by World War II, yet the red wine still flowed, the cafés bustled, and the Parisian women found American men exotic and heroic. There was an Irishman in Paris writing plays and novels unlike anything anyone had ever read-but hardly anyone was reading them. There were others, too, doing equivalently groundbreaking work for equivalently small audiences. So when his friends launched a literary magazine, Merlin, Seaver knew this was his calling: to bring the work of the likes of Samuel Beckett, Eugene Ionesco, and Jean Genet to the world. The Korean War ended all that-the navy had paid for college and it was time to pay them back. After two years at sea, Seaver washed ashore in New York City with a beautiful French wife and a wider sense of the world than his compatriots. The only young literary man with the audacity to match Seaver''s own was Barney Rosset of Grove Press. A remarkable partnership was born, one that would demolish U.S. censorship laws with inimitable joie de vivre as Seaver and Rosset introduced American readers to Lady Chatterly''s Lover, Henry Miller, Story of O, William Burroughs, The Autobiography of Malcolm X, and more. As publishing hurtles into its uncertain future, The Tender Hour of Twilight is a stirring reminder of the passion, the vitality, and even the glamour of a true life in literature.

Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : James Merrell''s brilliant book is an account of the go-betweens, the Europeans and Indians who moved between cultures on the Pennsylvania frontier in efforts to maintain the peace. It is also a reflection on the meanings of wilderness to the colonists and natives of the New World. From the Quaker colony''s founding in the 1680s into the 1750s, Merrell shows us how the go-betweens survived in the woods, dealing with problems of food, travel, lodging, and safety, and how they sought to bridge the vast cultural gaps between the Europeans and the Indians. The futility of these efforts became clear in the sickening plummet into war after 1750. A stunningly original and exceedingly well-written account of diplomacy on the edge of the Pennsylvania wilderness.--Publishers Weekly

The International Criminal Court In Search Of Its Purpose And Identity

Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the first permanent international criminal tribunal, which has jurisdiction over the most serious crimes of concern to the international community as a whole: genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crime of aggression. This book critically analyses the law and practice of the ICC and its contribution to the development of international criminal law and policy.The book focuses on the key procedural and substantive challenges faced by the ICC since its establishment. The critical analysis of the normative framework aims to elaborate ways in which the Court may resolve difficulties, which prevent it from reaching its declared objectives in particularly complex situations. Contributors to the book include leading experts in international criminal justice, and cover a range of topics including, inter alia, terrorism, modes of liability,ne bis in idem, victims reparations, the evidentiary threshold for the confirmation of charges, and sentencing. The book also considers the relationship between the ICC and States, and explores the impact that the new regime of international criminal justice has had on countries where the most serious crimes have been committed. In drawing together these discussions, the book provides a significant contribution in assessing how the ICC¿s practice could be refined or improved in future cases. The book will be of great use and interest to international criminal law and public international law.

Touch In Sports Coaching And Physical Education: Fear, Risk And Moral Panic

Product : Touch In Sports Coaching And Physical Education: Fear, Risk And Moral Panic
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : In our increasingly risk-averse society, touch and touching behaviours between professionals and children have become a fraught issue. In sports coaching and physical education, touching young sports performers and participants has, in some contexts, come to be redefined as dubious and dangerous. Coaches find themselves operating in a framework of regulations and guidelines that create anxiety, for them and others, and for many volunteer (and sometimes professional) coaches, this fearful context has led them to question the risks and benefits of their continuing involvement in sport.Touch in Sports Coaching and Physical Educationis the first book to explore this difficult topic in detail. Drawing on a series of international studies from the US, UK, Australia, Canada, Sweden and elsewhere, it presents important new research evidence and examines theories of risk and moral panic that frame the discussion. By challenging prevailing orthodoxies the book makes a significant contribution to critical discussion around practice, pedagogy, politics and policy in sport and physical education, and also informs current debates around the nature and quality of all in loco parentis relationships.

The Ape And The Sushi Master: Cultural Reflections Of A Primatologist

Category : Books>Science and Nature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : What if apes had their own culture rather than an imposed human version? What if they reacted to situations with behavior learned through observation of their elders (culture) rather than with pure genetically coded instinct (nature)? In answering these questions, eminent primatologist Frans de Waal corrects our arrogant assumption that humans are the only creatures to have made the leap from the natural to the cultural domain.The book''s title derives from an analogy de Waal draws between the way behavior is transmitted in ape society and the way sushi-making skills are passed down from sushi master to apprentice. Like the apprentice, young apes watch their group mates at close range, absorbing the methods and lessons of each of their elders'' actions. Responses long thought to be instinctive are actually learned behavior, de Waal argues, and constitute ape culture.A delightful mix of intriguing anecdote, rigorous clinical study, adventurous field work, and fascinating speculation,The Ape and the Sushi Mastershows that apes are not human caricatures but members of our extended family with their own resourcefulness and dignity.

Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Louis Jordan (1908-75) is the acknowledged father of rhythm and blues, the jazz saxophonist and vocalist whose inventiveness acted as a bridge between jazz and rhythm and blues, paving the way for Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, James Brown, and countless others.By combining the music of his rural African-American heritage with the sophisticated sounds of nightclub bands, Jordan produced a unique style. His inspired vocals, blending the humor and pathos of his upbringing, soon won him a huge following. Jordan and his Tympany Five made a string of bestselling records that included Is You Is Or Is You Ain''t My Baby, Caldonia, and Choo Choo Ch''Boogie. Posthumously, Jordan''s name has reached a new audience via the Broadway show Five Guys Named Moe.Singer-saxophonist Louis Jordan was the pivotal figure in the development of what would become known as rhythm and blues, and an important influence on such future stars as B. B. King, Ray Charles, Chuck Berry, James Brown, and Bill Haley....This biography, complete with a thoughtful analysis of all the musician''s numerous recordings, goes a long way toward restoring Jordan''s rightful place among the major musical figures of the century. --Express Books. . . Chilton tells fascinating stories of the swinging ''battles'' between big bands and the struggles of touring in the South, still very segregated during Jordan''s heyday. Here, as in his biographies of Coleman Hawkins and Sidney Bechet, Chilton demonstrates that he may be the most meticulous of jazz biographers. --BooklistJohn Chilton has, once again, given us an exemplary biography of a jazzman.... [A] fascinating read.... --JazzTimesJohn Chilton is the author of several books on jazz, including the Who''s Who of Jazz.

Material Witness: The Selected Letters of Fairfield Porter

Product : Material Witness: The Selected Letters of Fairfield Porter
Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The publication of Porter''s letters marks an occasion for a renewed celebration of his painting and an appreciation of his quirky, indeed ornery, personality. Porter was a feisty correspondent, who fearlessly entered the intellectual discourse of his time.---From the introduction by David LehmanIn this lifetime of letters, Fairfield Porter reveals the complexity and passion of a protagonist in a novel by Dostoevsky or Henry James.---Jane FreilicherFairfield Porter (1907-75) has been called by poet John Ashbery perhaps the major American artist of the century. He was also known as a gifted art critic.Beyond shedding light on his personal views, this collection of Fairfield Porter''s letters demonstrates his profound contribution to American art and literature and displays his acumen as a political critic. The letters tell the story of a reserved artist and intellectual, torn between the tensions and pressures he felt among politics, family life, and painting-a man who forged a painting style outside the politically correct artistic perceptions of both left and right.The collection includes letters from Porter''s early travels to the Soviet Union, including a description of an interview with Trotsky, as well as some of his later letters to close friends, including Frank O''Hara, Kenneth Koch, Rod Padgett, Larry Rivers, and James Schuyler, among others. While the letters reveal many sides of the brilliant and independent-minded Porter, they also provide a cultural context for the time period and the circle of artists and poets with whom Porter associated. The letters not only tell a story of the artist himself but are also valuable documents of the political and artistic upheavals of the 1930s, 40s, and 50s.This rich collection is introduced by poet and critic David Lehman and includes notes by Justin Spring, author of Porter''s biography.

Category : Books>Art and Architecture
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Death is universal, but the human response to death varies widely. In Western society, death is usually medicalized and taboo, and kept apart from the world of the living, while in much of the rest of the world, and for much of human history, death has commonly been far more integrated into peoples’ daily existence, and human remains are as much a reminder of life, memento vitae, as of death, memento mori. Through photos taken at more than 250 sites in thirty countries over a decade, Paul Koudounaris has captured death around the world. From Bolivia’s “festival of the little pug-nosed ones,” where skulls are festooned with flowers and given cigarettes to smoke and beanie hats to protect them from the weather to Indonesian families who dress mummies and include them in their household routines; from naturally preserved Buddhist monks and memorials to genocide in Rwanda and Cambodia to the dramatic climax of Europe’s great ossuaries, Memento Mori defies taboo to demonstrate how the dead continue to be present in the lives of people everywhere.

Newton''s immense contribution to the physical sciences is assessed, and its relevance to today''s physics made clear. The international group of contributors then chart the major developments in the study of gravitation, from Newtonian gravity to black hole physics. In the fields of galaxy formation, inflationary and quantum cosmology, and superstring unification, the book provides important overviews written by workers involved in the many advances described. By shaping such a wide-ranging and scholarly series of articles into a cohesive whole, the editors have created a fitting and lasting memorial to the man who continues to inspire scientists the world over.

Wit: A Play

Product : Wit: A Play
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : Winner of the 1999 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, the Drama Desk Award, the Outer Critics Circle Award, the Lucille Lortel Award, and the Oppenheimer AwardMargaret Edson''s powerfully imagined Pulitzer Prize-winning play examines what makes life worth living through her exploration of one of existence''s unifying experiences-mortality-while she also probes the vital importance of human relationships. What we as her audience take away from this remarkable drama is a keener sense that, while death is real and unavoidable, our lives are ours to cherish or throw away-a lesson that can be both uplifting and redemptive. As the playwright herself puts it, The play is not about doctors or even about cancer. It''s about kindness, but it shows arrogance. It''s about compassion, but it shows insensitivity. In Wit, Edson delves into timeless questions with no final answers: How should we live our lives knowing that we will die? Is the way we live our lives and interact with others more important than what we achieve materially, professionally, or intellectually? How does language figure into our lives? Can science and art help us conquer death, or our fear of it? What will seem most important to each of us about life as that life comes to an end?The immediacy of the presentation, and the clarity and elegance of Edson''s writing, make this sophisticated, multilayered play accessible to almost any interested reader. As the play begins, Vivian Bearing, a renowned professor of English who hasspent years studying and teaching the intricate, difficult Holy Sonnets of theseventeenth-century poet John Donne, is diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer. Confident of her ability to stay in control of events, she brings to her illness the same intensely rational and painstakingly methodical approach that has guided her stellar academic career. But as her disease and its excruciatingly painful treatment inexorably progress, she begins to question the single-minded values and standards that have always directed her, finally coming to understand the aspects of life that make it truly worth living.

A White Hat in Argo: Family Secrets

Product : A White Hat in Argo: Family Secrets
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : A White Hat in Argo describes the survival of a close-knit Negro family, led by three sisters, during the summer of 1951. Lil Man, an 8-year old, was enthralled by the rich lifestyles of his hard working relatives who lived in the small town outside Chicago, named Argo. The Negro section of Argo became an oasis for Blacks who earned a good wage working in the huge corn processing factory that dominated the town. Men worked hard and played hard in the bars and taverns that lined the Horseshoe Bend, where cheap drinks, fast women, honky-tonk music and cut throat gambling spiced up the nights. Rooster, Captain, Oliver, and Wallace survived that harsh life in different memorable ways.Author Gerald V. Stokes, through eyes of Lil Man, examines the mystery of why the three Shelman sisters, part of the Black Migration of the 1920''s, left Troy, Alabama, and took root in Argo, Illinois. Negro life in Argo was vibrant and care-free, yet intensely dangerous during that era. It was also a time where community closeness insured survival, but everyone held deeper secrets they dare not reveal. The secrets held by the three sisters were the most profound of all.

The Readability of the Past in Early Chinese Historiography

Product : The Readability of the Past in Early Chinese Historiography
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The past becomes readable when we can tell stories and make arguments about it. When we can tell more than one story or make divergent arguments, the readability of the past then becomes an issue. Therein lies the beginning of history, the sense of inquiry that heightens our awareness of interpretation. How do interpretive structures develop and disintegrate? What are the possibilities and limits of historical knowledge?This book explores these issues through a study of the Zuozhuan, a foundational text in the Chinese tradition, whose rhetorical and analytical self-consciousness reveals much about the contending ways of thought unfolding during the period of the text''s formation (ca. 4th c. B.C.E.). But in what sense is this vast collection of narratives and speeches covering the period from 722 to 468 B.C.E. historical? If one can speak of an emergent sense of history in this text, Wai-yee Li argues, it lies precisely at the intersection of varying conceptions of interpretation and rhetoric brought to bear on the past, within a larger context of competing solutions to the instability and disintegration represented through the events of the 255 years covered by the Zuozhuan. Even as its accounts of proliferating disorder and disintegration challenge the boundaries of readability, the deliberations on the rules of reading in the Zuozhuan probe the dimensions of historical self-consciousness.

Karl Jaspers: An Introduction to His Philosophy

Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : The thought of the late Karl Jaspers, co-founder of the existentialist movement, has long exerted a powerful influence on world opinion. But, surprisingly, though translations of his writings have appeared in over 160 editions in 16 countries, his strictly philosophical work has hitherto been largely inaccessible to American audiences. Even where adequate English translations exist, the difficulties imposed by Jaspers'' involved reasoning, intricate style, and ingenious neologisms are such that few unfamiliar with Continental philosophy can hope to acquire an understanding of his ideas on their own.To overcome these barriers, Professor Wallraff as mediator, interpreter, and translator provides a clear exposition of the main themes of Jaspers''Existenzphilosophieand prepares the reader for effective study of his writings. As the first book-length introduction to Jaspers'' philosophy in English, this will be an indispensable companion for anyone desiring to take up the challenge of the loving struggle toward the truth that Jaspers invites us all to engage in.Originally published in 1970.ThePrinceton Legacy Libraryuses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

The Worst Times Are The Best Times

Product : The Worst Times Are The Best Times
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This collection of endearing, heartfelt stories is from an NCAA Division I basketball coach who overcame life’s everyday obstacles—poverty, violence, bullying, and heartbreak—to find success on and off the court. North Carolina Central University head coach LeVelle Moton shares personal stories to help inspire and motivate. Looking back at his adolescent years, where he was an outstanding athlete, he shares tales about life that relate to sports, while not always directly involving action on the playing fields. Stories deal with making wise choices, overcoming failure, abstaining from sex, finding mentors, and preparation. Every chapter has a takeaway for readers in the “Inside the Locker Room” and “Chalkboard” sections. Rather than developing the next superstar athlete, Moton is more interested in teaching life’s hard lessons. He looks back at his relationships with his grandmother and mother, strong women who helped him navigate a turbulent childhood. He shares stories about growing up without a father and reflects on several mentors he found as a young man trying to find his way. His stories are sincere, funny, and humbling. They take an honest look at growing up struggling with the world working against you and finding a way to the life you dreamed for yourself. The book is moving for adults and poignant for youth, informative for basketball fans, and relevant and engaging to all. As part of the authors' ongoing commitment to support youth in their community, a portion of proceeds from all book sales is being donated to the Boys & Girls Club of America.

Product : Pagan Trinity - Holy Trinity: The Legacy of the Sumerians in Western Civilization
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : This book offers a revolutionary new synthesis of ancient history and religion by bridging the gap between the archaeology of Mesopotamia (now the country of Iraq) and the biblical account of Genesis. Professor Alan Dickin shows how the Sumerians, the ancient inhabitants of Mesopotamia, established the world''s first organized religion, which was a direct fore-runner of the Judeo-Christian faith. He places the biblical accounts of the Creation, Fall, Flood, and Tower of Babel in their historical context in ancient Mesopotamia, and identifies the origins of the biblical Trinity in the Sumerian pantheon. Finally, he explores the manner of God''s first revelations to mankind and the meaning of the lost secrets of the Garden of Eden. Over seventy line drawings of ancient artifacts, in addition to maps and historical tables, bring the civilization and religion of ancient Mesopotamia to life for a modern audience.

In Belgium, three resisters ambush a train, allowing scores of Jews to flee from the cattle cars.

And twelve-year-old Motele Shlayan entertains German officers with his violin moments before setting off a bomb. Through twenty-one meticulously researched accounts — some chronicled in book form for the first time — Doreen Rappaport illuminates the defiance of tens of thousands of Jews across eleven Nazi-occupied countries during World War II. In answer to the genocidal madness that was Hitler’s Holocaust, the only response they could abide was resistance, and their greatest weapons were courage, ingenuity, the will to survive, and the resolve to save others or to die trying.

Zeppelin:  The Story Of The Zeppelin Airships

Product : Zeppelin: The Story Of The Zeppelin Airships
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : On July 2, 1900, Ferdinand Graf Zeppelin made the first ascent in an airship of his own design. The flight was initially viewed with skepticism, however public opinion changed after the destruction of his fourth airship at Echterdingen. Zeppelin received so many donations that not only was he able to found his own companies for the purpose of building airships, but also production facilities for the development and manufacture of engines, transmissions, shells, gas cells, airship hangars and even the construction of aircraft. All of these companies enjoyed a tremendous upswing during the First World War. After the war the Zeppelin airship company took some time to get back on its feet, but then produced its crowning achievements - the LZ 127 Graf Zeppelin and the LZ 129 Hindenburg - memories of which still remain alive and influence the present. Author Hans Knäusel describes the Zeppelin story with a critical look at the economic and political effects of the period, from the beginning until the destruction of the Hindenburg in 1937. He also discusses airships built in other countries using the Zeppelin system, as well as the hangars and landing masts vital to operation of the big airships.

Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 8
Description : In Canada''s Early Nuclear Policy Brian Buckley weaves information from a number of disciplines to shed new light on Canada''s early policies. Filling a longstanding gap in the national story, he explores the country''s role in the early post-war period, cautioning against simplistic explanations and pointing to the continuing roles of contingency and personality in decision making. While the threat of nuclear war has receded in recent years, the number of states with nuclear weapons, the number of weapons, and their killing power are all far greater than they were five decades ago. Virtually all the issues that emerged fifty years ago remain on the international agenda and are as relevant today as ever.
