Watchers Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The acclaimed and enthralling story of the dark side of Elizabethan rule, from Stephen Alford Elizabeth I's reign is known as a golden age, yet to much of Europe she was a 'Jezebel' and heretic who had to be destroyed. The Watchers is a thrilling portrayal of the secret state that sought to protect the Queen; a shadow world of spies, codebreakers, agent provocateurs and confidence-men who would stop at nothing to defend the realm. Reviews: "Forget Le Carre, Deighton and the rest - this is more enthralling than any modern spy fiction". (Daily Telegraph). "Absorbing and closely documented...Alford vividly evokes this murky world of codes, ciphers, invisible ink, intercepted letters, aliases, disguises, forgeries and instructions to burn after reading ...flowing narrative [and] crisp judments ...engrossing". (Guardian). "[Alford] has brought a dash of le Carre to the 16th century". (The Times (Book of the Week)). "A vivid and staggeringly well-researched portrait of the sinister side of Elizabethan England...This is a spectacular book. It sheds new light on plots that most historians have ceased to explore and brings less famous conspiracies to the attention of the general reading public". (Herald). "Fascinating...If you want to know the inside story of this struggle, the dark heart of calculation and the fight for survival, then this is the book to read. I know no better". (Spectator). About the author: Stephen Alford is the author of the acclaimed biography Burghley: William Cecil at the Court of Elizabeth I and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. He taught for fifteen years at Cambridge University, where he was a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of History and a Fellow of King's College. He is now Professor of Early Modern British History in the University of Leeds.

The girl with the dragon tattoo is back: Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomkvist return in a continuation of Stieg Larsson's Millennium series.§Written by Swedish novelist and journalist David Lagercrantz, this much anticipated continuation to one of the best-loved crime series of the last decade will be published in Sweden as "Det som inte dödar oss" (What Doesn't Kill You).§David Lagercrantz:§Ever since his ghost-written autobiography of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, I Am Zlatan, became a runaway bestseller in more than 20 countries and won the William Hill Sports Book of the Year, David Lagercrantz has had a steady stream of book offers. But none of them excited him until he was approached to write the continuation of the Millennium Trilogy. This was a commission he could not resist.§His work on the fourth book in the series has been rigorously secretive, writing on a computer with no internet connection, delivering the manuscript to his publishers by hand.§He is very aware - and protective - of Stieg Larsson's legacy. He says: "Stieg Larsson was a master at creating complex stories with a lot of different plotlines and that was something I was determined to live up to ... (His writing style) is down to earth and unaffected. But there is a kind of journalistic authoritativeness about his work. I realised early on how idiotic it would be for me just to imitate him. This is my own prose."§§Stieg's father and brother explained the decision to allow a new book to be written, "to keep alive the characters and the world that Stieg Larsson created. We see it as a way of offering his many readers the continuation they have been longing for. We chose David Lagercrantz because we think he is highly suited to the task. David is a skilled writer who has portrayed odd characters and complex geniuses throughout his career. He will be doing it his own way." Joakim and Erland Larsson.

"Tess Castleman writes with enthusiasm and care about what Jung called the collective and personal unconscious, particularly its message delivered in dreams. Ms. Castleman gives a fine set of insights into group dream therapy as well as into the way symbolic language can help and inform an individual's life." - Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Ph.D., Jungian Analyst and author of Women Who Run with the Wolves "'Truly, our lives are our best creative work.' Tess Castleman's Threads, Knots, Tapestries bears testimony to this simple and vital truth she has discovered. She is honest, forthright, uncompromising in her search for answers to the mysteries of the soul, and she makes no apologies: 'Sometimes I go home at the end of the day and cannot decide if I'm a prostitute, con artist or healer.' Do we have a tribal unconscious? The author's group dreamwork described in this book makes a good case for it. Her candid reflections, pokings and ponderings provide welcome stimulation." - Robert Hinshaw, Ph.D., training analyst and faculty member of the C.G. Jung Institute of Zurich "Threads, Knots, Tapestries is itself a rich and colorful carpet of stories, myths, beliefs, and dreams that weaves the human experience into something much deeper, richer, and more connected than is obvious at the level of mind and consciousness. Castleman is a gifted and courageous pioneer in the field of Jungian Psychology, inter-twining the wisdom of dream and group work into a powerful healing experience. I loved the book." - Alice Tawwater Frazier, LPC, LMFT, BCIAC, CGP, President Dallas Group Psychotherapy Threads, Knots, Tapestries reveals the way our dreaming expresses and reflects our deep interpersonal and environmental interconnectivity. Drawing upon her decades of Jungian analytic practice, and many years of pioneering in dream groups, Castleman weaves a rich tapestry of dream threads which shows us how we are dreaming with and for each other. ... a storyteller telling the stories of people, their dreams, the stories of shamans, the stories of individuals suffering from cancer, love entanglements, and most delightfully, stories which show how dreams are woven together with communal life. - from the Foreword, C. Michael Smith, Ph.D., author of Jung and Shamanism in Dialogue, and Psychotherapy and the Sacred. Adjunct professor of psychology and religion, The Chicago Theological Seminary

Excerpt from Our Story of Atlantis: Written Down for the Hermetic Brotherhood It is not necessary for an author in these later days, always to be able to say, he writes of his own knowledge. This has become a recognized fact. He may write from another's experience, in whose honesty and reliability, he has as much, and sometimes more confidence, than in his own personal sense. This is the case with this little book, treating of a subject of interest to the whole world, to-day. For six years I have had the Mss. almost ready for the printer. Now, with the encouragement and helping hand of my Dear Comrades of the Hermetic Brotherhood, I am bid to let it go forth. May it be a help to the Once Atlantian Born, wherever they may be.

More than a billion people worldwide are overweight and over 600 million are obese. We live in an obesogenic environment in which it is much easier to get fat than to stay fit. How has this come to be? Who is to blame? What can we do?In Fat Planet, Dr David Lewis and Dr Margaret Leitch examine the social and psychological causes of the obesity pandemic in order to answer these questions. They use ground-breaking research to highlight the behaviour of corporations that relentlessly promote foods high in sugar, fat and salt, and show that these ?junk? foods have shockingly similar neurological effects to hard drugs. They consider the prevalence of food cues which unconsciously stimulate our desire to consume. And they debunk the myths of fad diets and slimming pills, suggesting practical, easily implemented strategies for sustainable weight loss.The evidence is clear: our problem with obesity must be addressed or we will face catastrophic consequences. It is not too late to change.

Market economy in Poland A history Wolters Kluwer

Historia ekonomii i gospodarki. Ekonomiści. PrzedsiębiorcyBiznes, EkonomiaWydawnictwa naukowe i popularno-naukoweHistoria Polski

In countries with a tradition of more than one hundred years of a free market economy, both public opinion and the economic policy of subsequent governments focus on pragmatic continuity. Changes or corrections are reduced to the necessary minimum. Further, any such change in economic policy is mainly the result of democratic elections and not that of unusual events of far-reaching, unpredictable consequences, such as wars or crises. However, this scenario is rarely found in countries with a much shorter market economy history, as in the case of Poland. This book presents the history of Poland's economic development in two periods: the interwar period and the period that followed the collapse of communism. The periods under study came in the aft ermath of historic events characterised by massive human and material losses, the First and the Second World War. Only two twenty-year periods can be said to feature market economy mechanisms in Poland, as prior to 1918 there had been no Polish state, and the period between 1950 and 1989 was marked by a socialist economy. Such a state of affairs was caused by both "bad geography" and the post-Yalta political "order". Both periods have also generated many heated discussions on issues related to the state's economic system and policy. The publication is addressed to academics, doctoral candidates and students.

'What a marvellous book this is Botton dissects what [Proust] had to say about friendship, reading, looking carefully, paying attention taking your time, being alive and adds his own delicious commentary. The result is an intoxicating as it is wise, amusing as well as stimulating, and presented in so fresh a fashion as to be unique ...I could not stop, and now much start all over again.' Brian Masters, Mail on Sunday 'De Botton not only has a complete understanding of Proust's life ...but what is particularly charming about this small, readable book is its tongue-in-cheek benignity, its lightly held erudition and its generous way of lending itself to what is not only the greatest book of the century but also the darkest and the most eccentric' Edmund White, Observer 'It contains more human interest and play of fancy than most fiction Botton, in emphasizing Proust's healing, advisory aspects, does us the service of rereading him on our behalf, providing of that vast sacred lake a sweet and lucid distillation.' John Updike, New Yorker 'De Botton's little book is so charming, amusing and sensible that it may even itself change your life.' Allan Massie, Daily Telegraph 'This engaging book is one of the most entertaining pieces of literary criticism I have read in a long while.' Sunday Telegraph 'A very enjoyable book' Sebastian Faulks

Britten and Brulightly JONATHAN CAPE

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Nowadays I don't get out of bed for less than a murder. I don't get out of bed much...Until today.' 'Private Researcher' Fernandez Britten is the messenger who would view being shot as a blessing. The years spent uncovering people's secret dramas and helping to confirm their darkest suspicions have taken their toll. Battered by remorse over the lives he has ruined, he clings to the hope of redemption through delivering, just once, a truth with a positive impact. It's a hope he has been clinging to for a long time. And so Britten and his 'unconventional' partner, Brulightly, take on the case of suicide Berni Kudos. At least, suicide was the official verdict. His fiancee, Charlotte Maughton, believes his death was something more sinister. Blackmail, revenge, murder: desperate acts are exposed, and this is no tree-lined avenue to justice. Each new revelation stirs the muddy waters of a family's dark secrets, and each fresh twist takes them further from that elusive redemption. There are murder mysteries and there are murder mysteries, but this is a noir where nothing is black and white.

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER 'Out of the secret world I once knew, I have tried to make a theatre for the larger worlds we inhabit. First comes the imagining, then the search for reality. Then back to the imagining, and to the desk where I'm sitting now.' From his years serving in British Intelligence during the Cold War, to a career as a writer that took him from war-torn Cambodia to Beirut on the cusp of the 1982 Israeli invasion, to Russia before and after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, John le Carre has always written from the heart of modern times. In this, his first memoir, le Carre is as funny as he is incisive - reading into the events he witnesses the same moral ambiguity with which he imbues his novels.Whether he's writing about the parrot at a Beirut hotel that could perfectly mimic machine gun fire, or visiting Rwanda's museums of the unburied dead in the aftermath of the genocide, or celebrating New Year's Eve with Yasser Arafat, or interviewing a German terrorist in her desert prison in the Negev, or watching Alec Guinness preparing for his role as George Smiley, or describing the female aid worker who inspired the main character in his The Constant Gardener, le Carre endows each happening with vividness and humour, now making us laugh out loud, now inviting us to think anew about events and people we believed we understood. Best of all, le Carre gives us a glimpse of a writer's journey over more than six decades, and his own hunt for the human spark that has given so much life and heart to his fictional characters. 'No other writer has charted - pitilessly for politicians but thrillingly for readers - the public and secret histories of his times' Guardian 'John le Carre is as recognizable a writer as Dickens or Austen' Financial Times 'When I was under house arrest I was helped by the books of John le Carre ...they were a journey into the wider world ...These were the journeys that made me feel that I was not really cut off from the rest of humankind' Aung San Suu Kyi

Tchaikovsky: Complete works for cello and orchestra

Książki naukowe>Sztuka>Muzyka, śpiew i taniec>Muzyka poważna

Here's another fine disc, unavailable for some time, now receiving a new lease of life, and with no significant competition. It's true that the complete works for cello and orchestra amount to less than half this disc's duration, comprising as they do a couple of miniatures (the Pezzo Capriccioso and Nocturne) and the evergreen Rococo Variations. But the first point of importance is that the fine Russian cellist Alexander Rudin plays the original version of the score, and not the much more widely available piece of well-meaning butchery by a cellist of chaikovsky's own time,Wilhelm Fitzenhagen. Fitzenhagen fiddled around with the order of the variations and left one out altogether, as well as somewhat simplifying the composer's original and strenuous but effective demands upon the soloist. A return to the original reveals what we have been missing in the way of a rather more substantial and coherent work, and there are but one or two rival versions on the market.In addition, Rudin complements the Variations with the gorgeous interlude from Swan Lake that features a solo cello, as well as an arrangement of the famous Andante cantabile from the First String Quartet. He then conducts this Muscovy orchestra himself in the Serenade for Strings.Alexander Rudin was born in 1960 and studied with the cello legend Daniil Shafran. His pedigree in this music is impeccable....

Returning to her family home after serving as a nurse in the Second World War, Kate Drew is unable to put her mind at rest. So much is as she left it - her parents are as loving to her and to each other as ever, the countryside is as welcoming and refreshing as she remembers. Is it simply that the years of conflict will be difficult to forget, or has the world changed for ever? Or is Kate's unease more personal than that? To put it bluntly, does she, or can she, love the man she is soon to marry - the fabulously wealthy, sometimes charming but often cold Gregory Roslyn? The situation becomes more complicated as she finds herself drawn to a considerate, handsome stranger, Hugh Graham. He, too, is already engaged to another. And the last thing she needs is an alternative marriage proposal from the seemingly odious local vicar! As her wedding day approaches, Kate's anxieties multiply. Through Mists of Darkness is an intelligent, sensitively told story of romance; of the uncertainties and aspirations of the heart; of decisions that have to be made between loyalty and blossoming new love. There was a great void in Phyllis M Snow's life when her husband died. She needed to keep busy and her children had their own families. Her daughter read something Phyllis had started writing years ago and said, 'Well, finish it - I want to know the end.' She did and has been scribbling ever since.

Personal Correspondence of Hildegard of Bingen Oxford University Press Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) was one of the most remarkable women of her day. From early childhood she experienced religious visions, and at the age of eight she entered a cloistered religious life in the Benedictine monastery of Disibondenberg. Eventually she not only became abbess of the community, but presided over the establishment of an important new convent near Bingen. All but forgotten for hundreds of years, Hildegard was rediscovered in the 1980s and since then her visionary writings have been widely read and studied. Even more surprisingly, music that she composed has been performed and recorded to great acclaim. She has come to be seen by some as a proto-feminist icon -- a woman of great accomplishments who made her own way in a man's world and exerted extraordinary influence over some of the most powerful figures of her time. Much of Hildegard's correspondence has been preserved. It reveals that for more than 30 years this cloistered nun was an unflinching adviser and correspondent to all levels of church and society, from popes and kings to ordinary lay persons, from Jerusalem to England.With the 2004 OUP publication of Volume III of Joseph Baird and Radd Ehrman's translation, the complete correspondence became available for the first time in English. For this new abridgement, Baird has selected 75 of the most interesting and revealing of the letters from Volumes I, II, and III. Freed from the organizational restraints of the Latin edition of the letters, he has arranged them in roughly chronological order and provided greatly expanded, accessibly written introductory notes that contextualize the letters and explain their significance. As a result, this fascinating collection serves as a kind of life in letters that makes an ideal introduction ot this exceptional woman, her world, and her work.This book is the first to give a thorough and definitive illlumination of the personal life of Hildegard of Bingen as viewed through the defining lens of her personal correspondence: her early, hesitant bid for recognition of her spiritual gifts; her courageous, and ultimately futile, fight to retain the companionship of her close personal friend and the poignant outcome of that struggle; her vehement defiance of the male hierarchy in her bid to establish her own communities under her personal governance; her impudent challenge to contemporary conservatives views by the dress and customs she established in her community; her paean of praise for the power of music; and her adamant refusal, even at the advanced age of eighty, to give in to the demands of the male authorities even in the face of excommunication.

Excerpt from Eulogy on the Life and Character of Gen. Zachary Taylor: Delivered at the Request of the Citizens of Raleigh, in the Presbyterian Church, July 20th, 1850 My Fellow Citizens: - Cold indeed must be the heart of him, who casting his thoughts back but a few days, can look unmoved upon the scene, which is passing before us, and dead the mind that could fail to learn from it the solemn and impressive lessons, it is so well calculated to impart! Ten days ago, there came to us on the wings of the lightning, the melancholy and unexpected intelligence, that the head of this mighty Nation, full of years and of honors, had been cut down in the midst of his usefulness and fame. I say it came to us on the wings of the lightning. How overwhelming to us all, was the literal reality! Though by the ordinary means, that intelligence should have not reached us, until, perhaps, the funeral ceremonies, with all their solemn sadness, were over, and dust unto dust had returned, yet as it was, we felt that we were in the presence of the corpse itself, - that we could reach forth, and touch the temple of that once proud spirit, that we could feel its pulsations depart, and catch the last flickerings of that 'light of life' which had burnt so brightly! We felt here, at the distance of hundreds of miles from the spot where that body lay in state, with the flush of life hardly faded from its cheek, that we could see passing to and fro, the great and illustrious of the land, eager to catch a last glimpse at that face from which had flashed the eagle eye, and on which the shock of battle had so often fallen, with no other effect, than to spring into life all the energies of the soul that reigned within. We felt that we were in the presence of the dead! - We saw the sable garments of the widow and the orphan. - We witnessed the tear as it coursed down the manly cheek of those, who stood in wrapt awe and sorrow around that bier. We joined the immense throng of mourners, who went with sad hearts to the solemn resting place, and we heard the booming of those minute guns which seemed like music to the flitting spirit, to remind it once more and for the last time, as it departed from earth, of the distant fields of its glory! Since that day, the grief, with which the heart of the nation throbbed with so much intensity, has been thrown out to every extreme, and back again has each pulsation been returned, to remind us, that in those extremes, every ennobling sensibility is alive to the Nation's loss.
