The Lure and Legacy of Music at Versailles Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Louis XIV and his court at Versailles had a profound influence on music in France and throughout Europe. In 1660 Louis visited Aix-en-Provence, a trip that resulted in political and cultural transformations throughout the region. Soon thereafter Aix became an important center of sacred music composition, eventually rivaling Paris for the quality of the composers it produced. John Hajdu Heyer documents the young king's visit and examines how he and his court deployed sacred music to enhance the royal image and secure the loyalty of the populace. Exploring the circle of composers at Aix, Heyer provides the most up-to-date and complete biographies in English of nine key figures, including Guillaume Poitevin, Andre Campra, Jean Gilles, Francois Estienne, and Antoine Blanchard. The book goes on to reveal how the history of political power in the region was reflected through church music, and how musicians were affected by contemporary events.

Essential Teachings of Shinran World Wisdom Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Shinran (1173-1262) is the founder of the Jodo Shinshu Pure Land Buddhist tradition in Japan during the Kamakura period. This movement, once set in motion, eventually became the largest Buddhist sect in Japan and spread to the West at the end of the nineteenth century. Renowned scholar of Shin Buddhism, Alfred Bloom, presents the life and spiritual legacy of Shinran Shonin, the influential religious reformer and founder of Pure Land Buddhism, the most popular school of Buddhism in Japan today. Bloom presents a wide selection of Shinran's essential writings on the key Shin Buddhist idea of "true entrusting" (shinjin) to the Other-Power of Amida Buddha through His Vow to save all sentient beings.

Edward III YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Edward III (1312 - 1377) was the most successful European ruler of his age. Reigning for over fifty years, he achieved spectacular military triumphs and overcame grave threats to his authority, from parliamentary revolt to the "Black Death". Revered by his subjects as a chivalric dynamo, he initiated the Hundred Years War and gloriously led his men into battle against the Scots and the French. In this illuminating biography, W. Mark Ormrod takes a deeper look at Edward to reveal the man beneath the military muscle. What emerges is Edward's clear sense of his duty to rebuild the prestige of the Crown, and through military gains and shifting diplomacy, to secure a legacy for posterity. New details of the splendour of Edward's court, lavish national celebrations, and innovative use of imagery establish the king's instinctive understanding of the bond between ruler and people. With fresh emphasis on how Edward's rule was affected by his family relationships - including his roles as traumatized son, loving husband, and dutiful father - Ormrod gives a valuable new dimension to our understanding of this remarkable warrior king.

Big Bets and Black Swans 2014 Brookings Institution

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

President Obama has just three years left in office to define his legacy in world affairs. He's facing a number of critical challenges - the ongoing war in Syria, the Iran nuclear negotiations, an enigmatic North Korea and other significant crises in world affairs. The president's advisors are busy devising policy recommendations aimed at grappling with these thorny issues. From these, the president must decide which priorities to pursue and how to best exercise U.S. power and influence to manage and shape the global order. This book presents a set of policy analysis and recommendations from The Foreign Policy scholars at the Brookings Institution. Designed to provide the White House with innovative and actionable policy initiatives, the book is constructed as a series of memos to President Obama. This year, the memos are divided into five categories: big Bets are issues where the president should consider investing his power, time and prestige in major efforts that can have a transformational impact on America and the world; double Downs are derived from the Big Bets from last year's recommendations that the president should redouble his efforts on; Black Swans are those low-probability but high-impact events that can divert the president and his administration's higher purposes, such as dramatic negative events that he will want to take steps in advance to avoid or to mitigate their consequences; nightmares are events that look more likely than a Black Swan and could prove particularly troublesome for U.S. interests and the global order, and for which the administration should prepare; and holds are updated policy recommendations to stay the course on approaches suggested last year. Contents: Big Bets; Reassert U.S. Leadership of a Liberal Global Order by Robert Kagan and Ted Piccone; Secure the Future of the Internet by Peter W. Singer and Ian Wallace; Solidify the U.S.-Afghanistan Alliance by Michael E. O'Hanlon and Gen. John Allen (USMC, Ret.); Lift the Ban on U.S. Oil Exports by Tim Boersma and Charles K.

Tradition and Rhetoric in the Pastoral Epistles - 2854474174

Tradition and Rhetoric in the Pastoral Epistles Peter Lang Publishing Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Much of the debate concerning the Pastoral Epistles of the New Testament (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus) has concentrated on the question of their authorship. The most reasonable explanation for them is that they were written in a post-Pauline context by one committed to commending his interpretation of Paul's legacy to his audience in order to secure it against the inroads of false teachers. However, little attention has been given to the persuasive strategies the author employs. This book, therefore, investigates the rhetoric by which the Epistles' author commended his actualization of the Pauline tradition. The strategies that the author uses derive from the sphere of ancient letter-writing and from oratory.
