Translocated Modernisms: Paris and Other Lost Generations

Product : Translocated Modernisms: Paris and Other Lost Generations
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Translocated Modernisms is a collection of ten chapters partitioned into sections and framed by an introduction by the editors and a coda by Kit Dobson, which is interested in those who thronged to the vibrant streets, cafés, and salons of Montparnasse, those who stayed such as Brion Gysin and Mavis Gallant, those who returned home such as Morley Callaghan, John Glassco, David Silverberg, and Sheila Watson, and those who galvanized local cultural practices by appropriating and translating them from elsewhere. While for some Paris becomes a permanent home, for others, it is simply a temporary excursion which can last for months, or for many years. The collection opens up the Lost Generation to include multiple generations and broadens its ambit to encompass modernist writers placed under erasure by dominant narratives of Anglo-American modernism. Instead of limiting the category to a single group based on a collective identity, this volume considers lost generations as a particular type of modernist identity attributable to multiple and disparate collectivities. These lost generations include those excluded from canonical narrativizations of expatriate modernisms, among which we spy the glimmer of other modernists living in the shadowsof luminaries long recognized in the Anglo-American tradition.

Fiddle Tunes For Beginning Cello

Product : Fiddle Tunes For Beginning Cello
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : This book contains a selection of fiddle tunes arranged for the beginning cello player. The idea is to supply a sampling of melodies that will give almost instant gratification to the novice. One of the drawbacks of the classic way of teaching cello is the boredom of some of the early pedagogic repertoire. This book is meant to be an antidote to that tedium. Fiddle tunes are great ways to become accustomed to typical manipulations of major scales and to introduce the sound of arpeggios. The only technical requisite for the music is the ability to play a major scale of some sort. The tunes were chosen for their fun melodic content while demonstrating some typical aspects of fiddling. They are grouped by key with a couple of exceptions and roughly arranged in order of difficulty within each key group. The included split-track CD demonstrates many of the tunes with guitar accompaniment and will help teach the swing phrasing.

Features include schematic drawings of the stages of therapy, the client''s own diary from her youth through her therapy in adulthood, client drawings illustrating progress in therapy, and effective art exercises that can be used at the beginning of therapy.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In 2005, celebrated novelist Francisco Goldman married a beautiful young writer named Aura Estrada in a romantic Mexican hacienda. The month before their second anniversary, during a long-awaited holiday, Aura broke her neck while body surfing. Francisco, blamed for Aura''s death by her family and blaming himself, wanted to die, too. Instead, he wrote Say Her Name, a novel chronicling his great love and unspeakable loss, tracking the stages of grief when pure love gives way to bottomless pain.Suddenly a widower, Goldman collects everything he can about his wife, hungry to keep Aura alive with every memory. From her childhood and university days in Mexico City with her fiercely devoted mother to her studies at Columbia University, through their newlywed years in New York City and travels to Mexico and Europe-and always through the prism of her gifted writings-Goldman seeks her essence and grieves her loss. Humor leavens the pain as he lives through the madness of grief and creates a living portrait of a love as joyous as it is deep and profound. Say Her Name is a love story, a bold inquiry into destiny and accountability, and a tribute to Aura, who she was and who she would''ve been.

The Struggle To Understand Isaiah As Christian Scripture

Product : The Struggle To Understand Isaiah As Christian Scripture
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : A key emphasis of Brevard Childs''s distinguished career has been to show not only that the canon of Scripture comprises both Old and New Testaments but also that the concept of canon includes the way the Christian church continues to wrestle in every age with the meaning of its sacred texts. In this new volume Childs uses the book of Isaiah as a case study of the church''s endeavor throughout history to understand its Scriptures.In each chapter Childs focuses on a different Christian age, using the work of key figures to illustrate the church''s changing views of Isaiah. After looking at the Septuagint translation, Childs examines commentaries and tractates from the patristic, Reformation, and modern periods. His review shows that despite an enormous diversity in time, culture, nationality, and audience, these works nevertheless display a family resemblance in their theological understandings of this central Old Testament text. Childs also reveals how the church struggled to adapt to changing social and historical conditions, often by correcting or refining traditional methodologies, while at the same time maintaining a theological stance measured by faithfulness to Jesus Christ. In an important final chapter Childs draws out some implications of his work for modern debates over the role of Scripture in the life of the church.Of great value to scholars, ministers, and students, this book will also draw general readers into the exciting theological debate currently raging in the Christian church about the faithful interpretation of Scripture.

Journal of a Voyage with Bering, 1741-1742

Product : Journal of a Voyage with Bering, 1741-1742
Category : Books>Travel
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : The European discovery of the northwest coast of America is fully and dramatically recorded in this journal, an invaluable historical and scientific source document. It is also a gripping narrative of human conflict, of nature as the overwhelming adversary, of terror and pain and death, and of final deliverance.In the service of the Russian tsarina, the German naturalist Steller accompanied the great Danish explorer Vitus Bering on a voyage that survived shipwreck and unimaginable hardship to mark the beginning of Alaska''s recorded history. This book is a new translation and annotation of Steller''s journal of that voyage and the first to be based completely upon a surviving copy of Steller''s manuscript dated 1743 (previous translation had been based on a 1793 edition). The journal is the best known of Steller''s writings, not so much because of events along the way, or its biological and anthropological observations, not even because of the momentous sight of the Alaskan coast and the subsequent landings, but because of the harrowing events of the return voyage.Thirty-two men of the 78 who set sail died, including Bering himself; 46 survived shipwreck in the winter of 1741-42 on a treeless, uninhabited island, and returned finally to home port on Kamchatka in a small vessel built from timbers of the wrecked ship. On the island, Bering and his lieutenant had become too ill to function and Steller found himself taking the lead in organizing work parties, finding antiscorbutic plant and animal food, nursing the six, and cheering the depressed—actions that kept all from perishing.

Description : Does the Holy Spirit do the same things now and in the New Testament times that He did in Old Testament times? Volume one in the NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY STUDIES IN BIBLE AND THEOLOGY series for pastors, advanced Bible students, and other deeply committed laypersons addresses this challenging subject.

What do the words indwelling and regeneration mean? How is the Holy Spirit''s ministry similar or different during Old Testament and New Testament times? Users will find this an excellent extension of the long-respected NEW AMERICAN COMMENTARY.

Collective Memory Of Political Events: Social Psychological Perspectives

Product : Collective Memory Of Political Events: Social Psychological Perspectives
Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Research in collective memory is a relatively new area capturing the interest of scholars in social psychology, memory, sociology, and anthropology. The core idea is that collective attitudes and behaviors are created and shared through common experiences and communication among a cohort of people. For example, people born between 1940 and 1960 are often defined via the JFK assassination and the Vietnam War. Their parents typically experienced lesser impact from these events. Papers about collective memory have appeared in the literature under different guises for the last hundred years. Freud''s Civilization and Its Discontents, Jung''s ideas on the collective unconscious, and McDougall''s speculation on the group mind posited that identity and action could be viewed as resulting from the shared development of a culture. Halbwachs, a French social psychologist (1877-1945) who was the first to write in detail about the nature of collective memory, argued that basic memory processes were all social. That is, people remember only those events that they have repeated and elaborated in their discussions with others. In the last several years, there has been a resurgence of interest in this general topic because it addresses some fundamental questions about memory and social processes. Work closely related to these questions deals with the nature of autobiographical memory, traumatic experience and reconstructive memory, and social sharing of memories. This book brings together an international group of researchers who have been empirically studying some basic tenets of collective memory.

The Peyote Religion among the Navaho

Product : The Peyote Religion among the Navaho
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : David F. Aberle's book on Navajo peyotism is by far the most comprehensive and complete of any on a North American tribe, and the Navajo nation is the largest in the United States. He discusses the specific politico-economic context and the crisis in the longtime struggle, and traces in detail the conflict of the traditional and the new religion. - Weston La Barre.A sound, scholarly work which has joined the ranks of anthropological classics since its original 1966 publication. -American Indian Quarterly.The chapters attending to the rituals of Peyotism and the contrast between it and Navaho religion are particularly good, though none of the materials can be faulted. Of import are the chapters explicating the Native American Church, Navaho style, in the theoretical context of social movements. -Choice.An exhaustive (but fascinating) study....Aberle makes a strong case for the right of those who believe in peyotism to practice their religion unhampered by law or social stigma. -Library Journal.Today peyotism is a political as well as a religious issue to the Navaho people....A large part of this] scholarly and impressive contribution is devoted to this aspect....Aberle has not been content to present ritual divorced from philosophy, and his discussion of the underlying though of peyotists is valuable to the student of religions in general.... His] study of the economic aspects of peyotism is closely detailed, and indeed, this book is one of the few publications which present such material in compact form for any North American Indian group.

The Diario of Christopher Columbus's First Voyage to America, 1492-1493

Product : The Diario of Christopher Columbus's First Voyage to America, 1492-1493
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : As the Quincentennial Celebration of Christopher Columbus's discovery of America approaches, interest in the voyage, and in the questions surrounding it, continues to grow. This definitive edition of Columbus's account of the voyage presents the most accurate printed version of his journal available to date. Unfortunately both Columbus's original manuscript, presented to Ferdinand and Isabella along with other evidence of his discoveries, and a single complete copy have been lost for centuries. The primary surviving record of the voyage-part quotation, part summary of the complete copy-is a transcription made by Bartolome de las Casas in the 1530s.This new edition of the Las Casas manuscript presents its entire contents-including notes, insertions, and canceled text-more accurately, completely, and graphically than any other Spanish text published so far. In addition, the new translation, which strives for readability and accuracy, appears on pages facing the Spanish, encouraging on-the- spot comparisons of the translation with the original. Study of the work is further facilitated by extensive notes, documenting differences between the editors' transcription and translation and those of other transcribers and translators and summarizing current research and debates on unanswered current research and debates on unanswered questions concerning the voyage. In addition to being the only edition in which Spanish and English are presented side by side, this edition includes the only concordance ever prepared for the Diario.Awaited by scholars, this new edition will help reduce the guesswork that has long plagued the study of Columbus's voyage. It may shed light on a number of issues related to Columbus's navigational methods and the identity of his landing places, issues whose resolution depend, at least in part, on an accurate transcription of the Diario. Containing day-by-day accounts of the voyage and the first sighting of land, of the first encounters with the native populations and the first appraisals of his islands explored, and of a suspenseful return voyage to Spain, the Diario provides a fascinating and useful account to historians, geographers, anthropologists, sailors, students, and anyone else interested in the discovery-or in a very good sea story.

Focusing on the period from 1941 to 1947, Alison R.

Black, White, and Southern:  Race Relations and Southern Culture, 1940 to the Present

Product : Black, White, and Southern: Race Relations and Southern Culture, 1940 to the Present
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In Black, White, and Southern, David R. Goldfield shows how the struggles of black southerners to lift the barriers that had historically separated them from their white counterparts not only brought about the demise of white supremacy but did so without destroying the South's unique culture. Indeed, it is Goldfield's contention that the civil rights crusade has strengthened the South's cultural heritage, making it possible for black southeners to embrace their region unfettered by fear and frustration and for whites to leave behind decades of guilt and condemnation. In support of his analysis Goldfield presents a sweeping examination of the evolution of southern race relations over the past fifty years. He provides moving accounts of the major moments of the civil rights era, and he looks at more recent efforts by blacks to achieve economic and class parity. This history of the crusade for black equality is in the end they story of the South itself and of the powerful forces of redemption that Goldfield attests are still working to shape the future of the region.

Slang And Sociability:  In-group Language Among College Students

Product : Slang And Sociability: In-group Language Among College Students
Category : Books>Reference and Language
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Slang is often seen as a lesser form of language, one that is simply not as meaningful or important as its ''regular'' counterpart. Connie Eble refutes this notion as she reveals the sources, poetry, symbolism, and subtlety of informal slang expressions.In Slang and Sociability, Eble explores the words and phrases that American college students use casually among themselves. Based on more than 10,000 examples submitted by Eble''s students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill over the last twenty years, the book shows that slang is dynamic vocabulary that cannot be dismissed as deviant or marginal. Like more formal words and phrases, slang is created, modified, and transmitted by its users to serve their own purposes. In the case of college students, these purposes include cementing group identity and opposing authority.The book includes a glossary of the more than 1,000 slang words and phrases discussed in the text, as well as a list of the 40 most enduring terms since 1972.

Forced Founders:  Indians, Debtors, Slaves & The Making Of The American Revolution In Virginia

Product : Forced Founders: Indians, Debtors, Slaves & The Making Of The American Revolution In Virginia
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In this provocative reinterpretation of one of the best-known events in American history, Woody Holton shows that when Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and other elite Virginians joined their peers from other colonies in declaring independence from Britain, they acted partly in response to grassroots rebellions against their own rule.The Virginia gentry''s efforts to shape London''s imperial policy were thwarted by British merchants and by a coalition of Indian nations. In 1774, elite Virginians suspended trade with Britain in order to pressure Parliament and, at the same time, to save restive Virginia debtors from a terrible recession. The boycott and the growing imperial conflict led to rebellions by enslaved Virginians, Indians, and tobacco farmers. By the spring of 1776 the gentry believed the only way to regain control of the common people was to take Virginia out of the British Empire.Forced Founders uses the new social history to shed light on a classic political question: why did the owners of vast plantations, viewed by many of their contemporaries as aristocrats, start a revolution? As Holton''s fast-paced narrative unfolds, the old story of patriot versus loyalist becomes decidedly more complex.

Fidelito’s mother, Maria Elena, tries to keep her son grounded while struggling with her own moorings. Meanwhile, Domingo, Fidelito''s fisherman father, is always at sea, even when among them. From the archipelago of the Philippines to San Francisco, horizontal and vertical movements shape moments of displacement and belonging for this marginalized family. Fidelito approaches life with a sense of wonder, finding magic in the mundane and becoming increasingly uncertain whether he is in the sky or whether his feet are planted firmly on the ground.

The Journalist As Autobiographer

Product : The Journalist As Autobiographer
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : More than novels, plays, or poems, what journalists have written between assignments have been their autobiographies. The autobiographical impulse has seized police reporters, foreign correspondents, sportswriters, city editors, television news anchors-virtually every species of journalist that has ever existed. This book examines why journalists have been so drawn to the autobiographical form and what sorts of identities they have carved out for themselves within it. The author focuses on the autobiographies of eight journalists, including Jacob Riis'' The Making of an American, Elizabeth Jordan''s Three Rousing Cheers, Vincent Sheean''s Personal History, Agness Underwood''s Newswoman, and H.L. Mencken''s Days trilogy. He analyzes the autobiographies not only as literary creations but also as cultural products. By connecting the autobiographies to the development of journalism as a profession, and, in the case of female journalists, to the struggle against traditional gender roles, he illuminates the complex interplay between private needs and public expectations in the autobiographical process. Although the story of a profession or calling is the most common type of modern autobiography, scholars have concentrated on other types. This book aims to fill part of the void. The first in-depth study of journalists as autobiographers, it suggests new ways to think about self, work, writing, and the culture that binds them together.

International Women Playwrights: Voices of Identity and Transformation-Proceedings of the First International Women Playwrights Co

Product : International Women Playwrights: Voices of Identity and Transformation-Proceedings of the First International Women Playwrights Co
Category : Books>Entertainment
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In 1988, for the first time in history, women dramatists gathered from around the world to discuss their profession, their craft as playwrights, their situation as women in theater and in the larger society, their insights into past and current social and political realities, and their dreams and visions for the future. Women from very different cultural backgrounds shared their experiences and their viewpoints_some of them in sharp contradiction to each other, others startlingly similar. Many were leading playwrights in their own countries. Some were among the first women to write for their nations'' theaters. The assembled dramatists included theatrical pioneers and innovators, heads of theater companies, directors, actors, scholars, teachers, social workers, and social activists. They came from Nigeria, South Africa, Sri Lanka, India, Australia, China, Japan, Korea, Brazil, Argentina, Greece, Israel, Russia, England, and Canada, as well as the United States. As U.S. playwright Megan Terry observed, ''It''s as if the oceans receded enough to show the new continent of women: Atlantis is alive and here today.'' This volume provides a record of that conference, edited to bring out the highlights of discussions on a range of topics including censorship and self-censorship, race and class, changing family roles, eroticism and sexuality, uses of myth and legend, developing and directing plays by women, and the form and structures of their plays. With index, bibliographies of playwrights, and appendix.

Early U.S.-Hispanic Relations, 1776-1860: An Annotated Bibliography

Product : Early U.S.-Hispanic Relations, 1776-1860: An Annotated Bibliography
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In these times of online catalogs and bibliographic databases, a printed bibliography has to justify itself. U.S. Relatinos with the Hispanic World, 1776 to 1860 is the only annotated bibliography on the subject. Most bibliographies on this subject begin with the wars of independence in Spanish America, but Mr. Tarrago has gone back to 1776, when the thirteen rebel English colonies in North America sought the help of the Spanish Crown in their struggle for independence from England. His bibliography thus includes titles useful for the study of navigation in the Mississippi before the Louisiana Purchase, and of United States trade with Spain and the Kingdoms of the Indies between 1789 and the beginning of the wars of Independence of the Kingdoms of the Indies. This is a selective bibliography, including many printed primary sources, as well as monographs and journal articles. Mr.Tarrago consulted each one of the titles that he has included in his bibliography. Since he did his research at the Library of Congress, the University of Texas at Austin Libraries, the Harvard College Libraries, and the New York Public Library, users of his bibliography can be assured of the availabilities of entries at one of these four institutions. His concise entries on reference sources, document collections, memoirs, monographs, and articles makes this bibliography useful not just to faculty, students, and the average user interested in history, but also to diplomats and librarians building a basic collection on the relations of the United States with the Spanish speaking nations.

The essays in Sherlock Holmes: Victorian Sleuth to Modern Hero offer insights on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle''s treatment of urbanization, the advent of the information age, and the work ethic; they also illuminate how later literature compares with the original Sherlock Holmes books thematically and stylistically. From the original model for Sherlock Holmes to the character''s portrayal on film, from analysis of the role of masculine power in the texts to analysis of the female rivals of Holmes, this book traces the ever-increasing variety of perspectives on Holmes and the way the original character has been adapted and re-envisioned.

Hosts And Guests:  The Anthropology Of Tourism

Category : Books>Business and Finance
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Tourism--one of the world's largest industries--has long been appreciated for its economic benefits, but in this volume tourism receives a unique systematic scrutiny as a medium for cultural exchange. Modern developments in technology and industry, together with masterful advertising, have created temporarily leisured people with the desire and the means to travel. They often in turn effect profound cultural change in the places they visit, and the contributors to this work all attend to the impact these guests have on their hosts.In contrast to the dramatic economic transformations, the social repercussions of tourism are subtle and often recognized only by the indigenous peoples themselves and by the anthropologists who have studied them before and after the introduction of tourism. The case studies in Hosts and Guests examine the five types of tourism--historical, cultural, ethnic, environmental, and recreational--and their impact on diverse societies over a broad geographical range

Product : Reproducing Reproduction: Kinship, Power, And Technological Innovation
Category : Books>Social and Cultural Studies
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Focusing on the key themes of power, kinship, and technological innovation, this volume offers a set of carefully argued studies that emphasize the importance of ethnographic method, as well as anthropological theory, to current debates about the reproductive processes of humans, animals, and plants. Reproducing Reproduction addresses these debates in a range of sites in which reproduction is being redefined and argues persuasively for a renewed appreciation of the centrality of reproductive politics to cultural and historical change. In chapters on abortion, assisted conception, biodiversity conservation, artificial life sciences, adoption, intellectual property, and prenatal screening, Reproducing Reproduction contends that ideologies of class, nation, health, gender, nature, and kinship have reproductive models at their core. Including prize-winning essays by Charis Cussins and Stefan Helmreich, this volume will be of great interest to a wide audience in the social sciences and health technology fields.

Her-2: The Making of Herceptin, a Revolutionary Treatment for Breast Cancer

Product : Her-2: The Making of Herceptin, a Revolutionary Treatment for Breast Cancer
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Two years after she underwent a mastectomy and chemotherapy, Barbara Bradfield''s aggressive breast cancer had recurred and spread to her lungs. The outlook was grim. Then she took part in Genentech''s clinical trials for a new drug. Five years later she remains cancer-free.        Her-2 is the biography of Herceptin, the drug that provoked dramatic responses in Barbara Bradfield and other women in the trials and that offers promise for hundreds of thousands of breast cancer patients. Unlike chemotherapy or radiation, Herceptin has no disabling side effects. It works by inactivating Her-2/neu--a protein that makes cancer cells grow especially quickly-- produced by a gene found in 25 to 30 percent of all breast tumors. Herceptin caused some patients'' cancers to disappear completely; in others, it slowed the progression of the disease and gave the women months or years they wouldn''t otherwise have had. Herceptin is the first treatment targeted at a gene defect that gives rise to cancer. It marks the beginning of a new era of treatment for all kinds of cancers.        Robert Bazell presents a riveting account of how Herceptin was born. Her-2 is a story of dramatic discoveries and strong personalities, showing the combination of scientific investigation, money, politics, ego, corporate decisions, patient activism, and luck involved in moving this groundbreaking drug from the lab to a patient''s bedside. Bazell''s deft portraits introduce us to the remarkable people instrumental in Herceptin''s history, including Dr. Dennis Slamon, the driven UCLA oncologist who played the primary role in developing the treatment; Lily Tartikoff, wife of television executive Brandon Tartikoff, who tapped into Hollywood money and glamour to help fund Slamon''s research; and Marti Nelson, who inspired the activists who lobbied for a "compassionate use" program that would allow women outside the clinical trials to have access to the limited supplies of Herceptin prior to FDA approval of the drug. And throughout there are the stories of the heroic women with advanced breast cancer who volunteered for the trials, risking what time they had left on an unproven treatment. Meticulously researched, written with clarity and compassion, Her-2 is masterly reporting on cutting-edge science.From the Hardcover edition.

Our Land Was A Forest: An Ainu Memoir

Product : Our Land Was A Forest: An Ainu Memoir
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : This book is a beautiful and moving personal account of the Ainu, the native inhabitants of Hokkaido, Japan''s northern island, whose land, economy, and culture have been absorbed and destroyed in recent centuries by advancing Japanese. Based on the author''s own experiences and on stories passed down from generation to generation, the book chronicles the disappearing world—and courageous rebirth—of this little-understood people.Kayano describes with disarming simplicity and frankness the personal conflicts he faced as a result of the tensions between a traditional and a modern society and his lifelong efforts to fortify a living Ainu culture. A master storyteller, he paints a vivid picture of the Ainus'' ecologically sensitive lifestyle, which revolved around bear hunting, fishing, farming, and woodcutting.Unlike the few existing ethnographies of the Ainu, this account is the first written by an insider intimately tied to his own culture yet familiar with the ways of outsiders. Speaking with a rare directness to the Ainu and universal human experience, this book will interest all readers concerned with the fate of indigenous peoples.

Sexual Consent

Product : Sexual Consent
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : A popular belief is that whatever takes place in private between consenting adults should be allowed. This is the first book to offer a systematic philosophical examination of what might be meant by consent and what role it should play in the context of sexual activity.Investigating the adequacy of standard accounts of consent, the book criticizes an influential feminist critique of consensuality. David Archard then applies this new theoretical understanding of sexual consent to controversial topics, such as prostitution, rape, sadomasochism, and the age of consent.Written in clear, jargon-free language that combines philosophical analysis with practical discussion of real and imagined legal cases, Sexual Consent is both a provocative and fascinating study for philosophers, lawyers, and general readers.

June In Eden

Product : June In Eden
Category : Books>Fiction and Literature
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Sometimes June in Eden occupies a garden in a wild landscape. Other times, we’re given a terrain where the coveted tree is one that hides a cell tower, where lungs are likened to ATMs and prayers are sent via text message. Rosalie Ruth Moffett’s debut collection of poetry, June in Eden, questions the human task of naming in a time where there are “new kinds of war that keep / changing the maps,” where little mistakes—preying or praying, for instance—are easily made. The heart of this book is an obsession with language, its slippages and power, what to do when faced with the loss of it. “Ruth,” says our speaker, is “a kind of compassion / nobody wants anymore—the surviving half / of the pair of words is ruthless.” There is, throughout this collection, a dark humor, but one that belies a tenderness or wonder, our human need to “love the world / we made and all its shadows.” Rosalie Moffett’s June in Eden gives us a speaker bewildered by and in awe of the world: both the miracles and failures of technology, medicine, and imagination. These darkly humorous poems are works of grief and wonder and give us a landscape that looks, from some angles, like paradise.

Capitalism and a New Social Order: The Republican Vision of the 1790s

Product : Capitalism and a New Social Order: The Republican Vision of the 1790s
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In 1800 the Jeffersonian Republicans, decisive victors over what they considered elitist Federalism, seized the potential for change in the new American nation. They infused in it their vision of a society of economically progressive, politically equal, and socially liberated individuals. This book examines the fusion of ideas and circumstances which made possible this triumph of America''s first popular political movement. When the Federalists convened in New York to form the more perfect union promised by the new United Sates Constitution, they expected to build a strong central government led by the revolutionary members of the old colonial elite. This expectation was dashed by the emergence of a vigorous opposition led by Thomas Jefferson but manned by a new generation of popular politicians: interlopers, émigrés, polemicists—what the Federalists called the mushroom candidates. They turned the 1790s into an age of passion by raising basic questions about the characters of the American experiment in government. When the Federalists defenders of traditional European notions of order and authority came under attack, they sought to discredit the radical beliefs of the Jeffersonians. Although the ideas that fueled the Jeffersonian opposition came from several strains of liberal and libertarian thought, it was the specific prospect of an expanding commercial agricutlure that gave substance to their conviction that Americans might divorce themselves from the precepts of the past. Thus, capitalism figured prominently in the Jeffersonian social vision. Aroused by the Federalists'' efforts to bind the nation''s wealthy citizens to a strengthened central government, the Jeffersonians unified ordinary men in the southern and middle states, mobilizing on the national level the power of the popular vote. Their triumph in 1800 represented a new sectional alliance as well as a potent fusion of morality and materialism.

Coming Clean: Overcoming Addiction Without Treatment

Product : Coming Clean: Overcoming Addiction Without Treatment
Category : Books>Health and Well Being
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Despite the widely accepted view that formal treatment and twelve-step groups are essential for overcoming dependencies on alcohol and drugs, each year large numbers of former addicts quietly recover on their own, without any formal treatment or participation in self-help groups at all. Coming Clean explores the untold stories of untreated addicts who have recovered from a lifestyle of excessive and compulsive substance use without professional assistance. Based on 46 in-depth interviews with formerly addicted individuals, this controversial volume examines their reasons for avoiding treatment, the strategies they employed to break away from their dependencies, the circumstances that facilitated untreated recovery, and the implications of recovery without treatment for treatment professionals as well as for prevention and drug policy. Because of the pervasive belief that addiction is a disease requiring formal intervention, few training programs for physicians, social workers, psychologists, and other health professionals explore the phenomenon of natural recovery from addiction. Coming Clean offers insights for treatment professionals of how recovery without treatment can work and how candidates for this approach can be identified. A detailed appendix outlines specific strategies which will be of interest to addicted individuals themselves who wish to attempt the process of recovery without treatment.

The Modern Christmas in America: A Cultural History of Gift Giving

Product : The Modern Christmas in America: A Cultural History of Gift Giving
Category : Books>History
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : In days of old, Christmas was defined by the custom of exchanging simple handmade gifts. Today, it has become a multi-billion industry, synonymous with commercialism and consumption. How did this transformation occur?In this incisive and engaging examination of how Christmas has evolved since 1880, Waits chronicles the history of the holiday, from its origin to its current form. The book is illustrated with dozens of historical photographs and will be of interest to cultural and social historians alike.Christmas was a relatively modest occasion in the English- speaking world, celebrated by the exchange of modest handmade gifts, until the Victorians invested the holiday with immense significance as part of a larger effort to celebrate home, family, and a mythic past of well-ordered communities. By the late 19th century, Christmas had become a major American festival. Today, it is a multi-billion dollar industry and easily the most important seasonal event of the year.In this survey of the modern American Christmas, William Waits shows us how this holiday emerged, tracing its evolution from the days prior to 1880 when people presented one another with simple crafted presents to the turn of the century when industrialization brought with it waves of inexpensive, tawdry gimcracks. In the early twentieth century, reform-minded Americans reflecting on the new Christmas prompted a backlash against this cheapening of the Yule tradition, and the Christmas card was born. Henceforth, family members and close friends exchanged useful, costly items, while cards were sent to acquaintances and distant relatives. These reformers also persuaded retail stores to keep their regular hours of business during the holiday, rather than lengthening them, to give trade workers the opportunity to join in the celebration. They also rationalized the collection and distribution of holiday charity, resulting in the Christmas celebration we have today. Waits''s book clearly illustrates that the notion that Christmas is uncontrollable is simply untrue.An incisive and engaging history of giftgiving, The Modern Christmas in Americaalso examines the differing traditions of giftgiving to friends, employees, the poor, and among entire communities. Handsomely illustrated with dozens of historical photographs, this book is not only the perfect holiday gift but will also be of interest to any student of American history and culture.

Category : Books
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Since the publication of Visions of Excess in 1985, there has been an explosion of interest in the work of Georges Bataille. The French surrealist continues to be important for his groundbreaking focus on the visceral, the erotic, and the relation of society to the primeval. This collection of prewar writings remains the volume in which Batailles’s positions are most clearly, forcefully, and obsessively put forward.This book challenges the notion of a “closed economy” predicated on utility, production, and rational consumption, and develops an alternative theory that takes into account the human tendency to lose, destroy, and waste. This collection is indispensible for an understanding of the future as well as the past of current critical theory.Georges Bataille (1897-1962), a librarian by profession, was founder of the French review Critique. He is the author of several books, including Story of the Eye, The Accused Share, Erotism, and The Absence of Myth.

Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : While there is no perfect solution or absolute zero risk, engineering design can significantly reduce risk potential in the CPI. In Guidelines for Design Solutions to Process Equipment Failures, industry experts offer their broad experience in identifying numerous solutions to the more common process equipment failures including inherent safer/passive, active, and procedural solutions, in decreasing order of robustness and reliability. The book challenges the engineer to identify opportunities for inherent and passive safety features early, and use a risk-based approach to process safety systems specification. The book is organized into three basic sections: 1) a technique for making risk-based design decisions; 2) potential failure scenarios for 10 major processing equipment categories; and 3) two worked examples showing how the techniques can be applied. The equipment categories covered are: vessels, reactors, mass transfer equipment, fluid transfer equipment, solids-fluid separators, solids handling and processing equipment, and piping and piping components. Special Details: Hardcover book plus 3.5 diskette for use in any word processing program with design solutions for use in PHAs.

The Early History of Data Networks

Product : The Early History of Data Networks
Category : Books>Computers
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : Most of us would consider the emergence of large-scale communication networks to be a 20th century phenomenon. Yet, the first nationwide data networks were built not in this century but almost 200 years ago. Well before the electromagnetic telegraph was invented, many countries in Europe had fully operational data communications systems, with altogether close to 1,000 network stations. This book gives a fascinating glimpse of the many documented attempts throughout history to develop effective means for long-distance communications. The oldest attempts date back to millennia before Christ, and include ingenious uses of homing pigeons, mirrors, flags, torches, and beacons. The book then shows how Claude Chappe, a French clergyman, started the information revolution in 1794 with the design and construction of the first true telegraph network in France. Another chapter contains the first complete English translation of a remarkable document on the design of optical telegraphs networks, originally written in 1796 by the Swedish nobleman Abraham Niclas Edelcrantz.

Description : The personal approach to teaching recounts one teacher''s success in leaving behind traditional teaching and engaging the person of both the teacher and the student in the educative process.

Over one hundred students assess the impact of this style on their personal lives and learning and in summation the author draws lessons for teaching and learning. Originally published in 1971 by Charles E. Merrill Publishing Company, this edition contains a new preface by the author.

Product : The Sacred Athlete: On the Mystical Experience and Dionysios, its Westernworld Fountainhead
Category : Books>Religion and Spirituality
Catalog : Indigo Product Feed - Books Catalog 9
Description : This is a cross-disciplinary examination of the mystical experience. It begins with survey data on the uncanny or anomalous experience, proceeds to consider neurobiological and cognitive psychological theory and data, examines philosophical positions and romanticism, proposes new biopsychophysical research compatible with both physical theory and data on sensory response. It then moves to consider Dionysios (called the ''fountainhead'' of Western mysticism by William James) in terms of extant influences upon him in Byzantium (circa 600 AD). Examines Dionysios'' mysticism and constructs a biography based on his situation and works. Also discusses mysticism''s relationship to art and current secular expressions.
