Pierre Boulez is acknowledged as one of the most important composers in contemporary musical life. This collection explores his works, influence, reception and legacy, shedding new light on Boulez's music and its historical and cultural contexts. In two sections that focus firstly on the context of the 1940s and 1950s and secondly on the development of the composer's style, the contributors address recurring themes such as Boulez's approach to the serial principle and the related issues of form and large-scale structure. Featuring excerpts from Boulez's correspondence with a range of his contemporaries here published for the first time, the book illuminates both Boulez's relationship with them and his thinking concerning the challenges which confronted both him and other leading figures of the European avant-garde. In the final section, three chapters examine Boulez's relationship with audiences in the United Kingdom, and the development of the appreciation of his music.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Universities and governments are keen for academics to commercialise their ideas, but good advice on how to do so can be hard to find. Undergraduates and postgraduates are increasingly being encouraged to develop their commercial skills but, unlike other academic subjects, no textbook exists to support this. Enterprise for Life Scientists uniquely fills both gaps; it covers the key issues for academic commercialisation, including IP protection, business planning, funding, and spin-out companies, in a very accessible format with frequent examples drawn from real-life case studies. The book is a 'must-have' for any life science academic thinking about harnessing the commercial potential of their academic work, as well as providing a superb text on which to base courses on enterprise in the undergraduate curriculum. Reviews: Enterprise for Life Scientists is a very informative publication, covering the processes, considerations and skills that are integral to the development of effective strategies for the exploitation of novel ideas generated through biological research. This much needed guide is presented in a highly accessible format and makes good use of real-life case studies to illustrate key points and processes. The style, content and use of features, such as the summary sections at the end of each chapter to reinforce core messages, make this a valuable teaching aid for undergraduate students, postgraduate researchers and trainers alike. To summarise, Enterprise for Life Scientists is a timely publication which provides biologists, from undergraduate to researcher, with a comprehensive guide to knowledge transfer and the commercialisation process. The accessible format and language make this an excellent tool to support enterprise learning. Sarah Wilbourn, University of Durham The UK Government recognises the knowledge-based economy as key to wealth generation and to the well-being of society as a whole. University research, particularly in the life sciences, has a significant role to play in this regard. However, exploitation of knowledge requires particular skills and commercial awareness. It is essential, therefore to inspire biologists to pursue entrepreneurial activities and to underpin this with the necessary skills training. The last few years has seen a growth in the development of courses specifically designed to meet the emerging demand for enterprise training. The School of Biological and Biomedical Sciences, Durham University has been running its Biology Enterprise module for 7 years. Aimed at undergraduates the module has been designed to introduce students to the commercialisation of biological innovation and to develop their entrepreneurial skills, attitudes and behaviour. Biotechnology is one of, if not, the most regulated sectors and raises highly specific challenges with regard to the commercialisation of new products and process. Durham's Biology Enterprise module is delivered by a mix of academics and practitioners with the necessary sector specific knowledge and experience. However, until now it has only been possible to direct students to general text books on business planning. There has been a real need for a publication that provides sector specific guidance - Enterprise for Life Scientists successfully fills this gap. Enterprise for Life Scientists is a very informative publication, covering the processes, considerations and skills that are integral to the development of effective strategies for the exploitation of novel ideas generated through biological research. This much needed guide is presented in a highly accessible format and makes good use of real-life case studies to illustrate key points and processes.

Brehm's Life of Animals, Vol. 1 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Brehm's Life of Animals, Vol. 1: A Complete Natural History for Popular Home Instruction and for the Use of Schools Brehm's immortal book, "Life of Animals," is one of the most fascinating works ever written upon natural history. The author devoted his life to a study of animate nature, seeking out the creatures in their wild state and making most intimate acquaintance their habits, traits and characteristics. Many years were spent by him in the great forests, where he seemed to court danger in order that he might arrive at knowledge of the truth. The results of his studies and observations are shown in this masterly production, which, while detailing all the facts essential to scientific knowledge, clothes his narrative in descriptive details that hold the attention of old and young as strongly as the most thrilling romances. The new and revised edition of this work, carefully corrected and brought down by the scholarly Dr. William Haacke and Professor Pechuel-Loesche, the latter no less distinguished as an explorer than as a naturalist, has passed under the hands of Richard Schmidtlein, the celebrated German naturalist and author, who has preserved in it all the rich and splendid material of the original, but has omitted details and descriptions of a strictly scientific nature, the object being to furnish a book for popular home instruction and for the use of schools. Professor Schmidtlein, in his scholarly and entertaining revision, made such changes as the progress of modern science demanded and perfected his work in a manner to call forth the highest praise from critics everywhere. The present edition has been translated from the German by linguists of distinction who have in the happiest manner transferred to the English tongue the rich, exuberant and fascinating style of the original; while competent scholars have carefully revised the translation, making only such changes as were calculated to bring it closer to the mind of the English reader. These changes are either inclosed in brackets, or are set in smaller type than the body of the work. The short sketches introduced under the pictures, independent of the text, are also the work of the American editors. This edition is, therefore, practically a complete work brought down to date, containing substantially all the matter to be found in Brehm's "Life of Animals," adapted to meet and reach the popular taste, and rendered into English in such manner as to make it clear and intelligible to every one, the child as well as the adult, only those animals being omitted which are little known and of interest to none but specialists. The book is designed to meet in the highest degree a great popular need, technical terms and long scientific descriptions being avoided, whenever possible, and it is invaluable as a work of reference and of study. It not only contains narratives of Brehm's exciting personal experiences and observations in forest and field, but also those of all other leading naturalists and explorers of the world, whose intimate touch with animate nature inspired them to speak in words that glow with interest and that thrill the reader. A most attractive feature of the present work is the superb illustrations, which include, with few exceptions, all that are contained in Brehm's complete work, and also numerous additions designed and executed at great expense and including the best efforts of the greatest artists in delineation of animal life. The work of these distinguished artists, supplemented with faithful mechanical reproductions, has resulted in the presentation of the various animals precisely as they appear in a state of nature, the figures being of a size to enable the student to obtain a most accurate knowledge of each creature, while parents and teachers can be assured that nothing is exaggerated, but that every detail is given with absolute fidelity.

Social Distance of Polish Emigrants Towards "Strangers" and "Others" - Bera Ryszard, Korczyński Mariusz

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - Migration is not only a demographic, sociological or economic problem. It is a complex multidimensional issue within the member states of the European Union which is a source of complications in the processes of adaptation and acculturation, and contributes to the formation of barriers and growing social distance etc. On the one hand, migrants become fascinated with all that is new, attractive and unknown; on the other, they experience detachment, marginalisation and alienation. This leads to fear, anxiety and a felling of threat often resulting from the incomprehension of social situations, the rules of social life, cultural patterns and scripts. That is why I believe that this book expands the repertoire of publications in this area of studies. A also think that it raises some relevant issues, provides explanations and poses questions while as the same time encouraging in-depth analyses and reflections.

Evagrius Ponticus and Cognitive Science - 2826926793

Evagrius Ponticus and Cognitive Science Wipf & Stock Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Description: This study puts the thought of Evagrius Ponticus, a fourth-century theologian, into dialogue with modern cognitive science in regard to the topic of evil, specifically moral evil. Evagrius, in his writings about prayer and the ascetic life, addressed the struggle with personal moral evil in terms of the eight ""thoughts"" or ""demons."" These ""thoughts"" were transmitted by John Cassian to the Western church, and later recast by Gregory the Great as the Seven Deadly Sins. Though present understandings of evil appear to differ greatly from those of Evagrius, his wisdom concerning the battle against evil may prove to be of great help even today. Using the work of Pierre Hadot to recover Evagrius's context, and the work of Paul Ricoeur to discuss how we construct descriptions and myths of evil, Evagrius is brought into dialogue with the cognitive sciences. Using current research, especially the work of Eugene d'Aquili and Andrew Newberg, this study reveals the contemporary relevance of Evagrius' approach to combating evil. In addition, the interdisciplinary study of patristics and cognitive science opens the pathway to a better understanding between Christian tradition and the modern sciences. Endorsements: ""Recent years have seen a resurgence in studies of Evagrius of Pontus bringing his work into a new relevance to today's world. This book by Dr. Tsakiridis examines the work of Evagrius and focuses on a perspective not well-covered in the literature-Evagrius' importance to science especially the cognitive sciences. The book is insightful and represents an important new contribution to studies of Evagrius' work and to the science and religion discussion as a whole. --Gayle E. Woloschak The Feinberg School, Northwestern University ""Few writers in the field of religion and science have the competence to interpret so many and varied texts in patristic mystical and moral theology, contemporary neuro - science, and the turn to spirituality in contemporary theology . . . He shows how both cognitive science and mystical theology can mutually enrich and inform each other in ways unimagined by today's popular neo-atheists and agnostics."" --Robert A. Cathey McCormick Theological Seminary ""In a thoroughly limpid style, George Tsakiridis sets before us an exceptionally interesting project: (1) he centers on sin, evil, and prayer in a way that is central to the religious life; (2) he engages the cutting edge domain of cognitive sciences; and (3) he invites us to take seriously both a much neglected fourth century religious thinker and the most contemporary work of scientists who focus on the mind and its activities."" --Philip Hefner Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, Emeritus ""George Tsakiridis artfully compares and clarifies the concepts used by ancient and modern thinkers to describe meditation, ways to deal with good and evil, and mysticism, and adds neuroscientific studies of such experiences. Though the times were vastly different, enlightening human commonalities emerge."" --Carol Rausch Albright Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago About the Contributor(s): George Tsakiridis is currently a Lecturer in Religious Studies at Saint Xavier University, Chicago.

Quartet Diogenes - Schubert: Complete String Quartets Vol. 3

Książki & Multimedia > Muzyka

Opis - Although perhaps better known for his Lieder and piano music, both of the works heard on this new recording by the Daniel Quartet are from Robert Schumann"s significant oeuvre of chamber music. Remarkably, it was within a single year (1842), at the start of his career, that Schumann wrote his three String Quartets Op.41 and the Piano Quintet Op.44; both are now considered pillars of the chamber music repertoire. Schumann was well acquainted with examples of the genre by Haydn, Mozart and Mendelssohn, and passionate studies of Beethoven"s quartets preceded his own works. He adapted elements from these older compositions into his new music, and easily transposed his writing for full orchestra to the smaller ensemble. Schumann"s song-like melodies are brought to life in this lively new release, with the exuberant character of the music palpable in the Daniel Quartet"s performance. Schumann himself described the String Quartet in A major as one of the best things he had ever written, and the Piano Quintet in E flat major is similarly considered one of Schumann"s best compositions. The work was dedicated to his beloved wife Clara, and she played in its premiere in 1843. The Daniel Quartet is renowned for its performances of chamber music at major venues in the USA and across Europe. For the Piano Quintet, they are joined by Hungarian pianist Klára Würtz " one of Brilliant Classics" most prolific artists " whose recent recording of Beethoven violin sonatas received five-star reviews in Diapason and Fanfare. Other information: - Recorded in 2014. - This new recording presents two of Schumann"s best and most famous chamber music works. - Schumann composed his first 23 Opus numbers exclusively for piano solo, then poured out a rich stream of Lieder. He came relatively late to orchestral and chamber music. His Piano Quintet and String Quartets are firmly rooted in the Viennese classical style of Beethoven and Mendelssohn, but Schumann imbued them with his own unique "fantastic? language, a free and dreamlike imagination, full of diverse characters and ideas. - Excellent performances by one of the leading Dutch string quartets, the Daniel Quartet, joined in the Piano Quintet by Klára Würtz, whose Schumann recordings for Brilliant Classics have met with great critial acclaim. - Booklet includes liner notes and artist biographies.

Winner of the Western History Association's 2009 Hal K. Rothman AwardFinalist in the Western Writers of America Spur Award for the Western Nonfiction Contemporary category (2008).The San Francisco Bay Area is one of the world's most beautiful cities. Despite a population of 7 million people, it is more greensward than asphalt jungle, more open space than hardscape. A vast quilt of countryside is tucked into the folds of the metropolis, stitched from fields, farms and woodlands, mines, creeks, and wetlands. In "The Country in the City," Richard Walker tells the story of how the jigsaw geography of this greenbelt has been set into place.The Bay Area's civic landscape has been fought over acre by acre, an arduous process requiring popular mobilization, political will, and hard work. Its most cherished environments--Mount Tamalpais, Napa Valley, San Francisco Bay, Point Reyes, Mount Diablo, the Pacific coast--have engendered some of the fiercest environmental battles in the country and have made the region a leader in green ideas and organizations.This book tells how the Bay Area got its green grove: from the stirrings of conservation in the time of John Muir to origins of the recreational parks and coastal preserves in the early twentieth century, from the fight to stop bay fill and control suburban growth after the Second World War to securing conservation easements and stopping toxic pollution in our times. Here, modern environmentalism first became a mass political movement in the 1960s, with the sudden blooming of the Sierra Club and Save the Bay, and it remains a global center of environmentalism to this day.Green values have been a pillar of Bay Area life and politics for more than a century. It is an environmentalism grounded in local places and personal concerns, close to the heart of the city. Yet this vision of what a city should be has always been informed by liberal, even utopian, ideas of nature, planning, government, and democracy. In the end, green is one of the primary colors in the flag of the Left Coast, where green enthusiasms, like open space, are built into the fabric of urban life.Written in a lively and accessible style, "The Country in the City" will be of interest to general readers and environmental activists. At the same time, it speaks to fundamental debates in environmental history, urban planning, and geography. Richard A. Walker is professor of geography and chair of the California Studies Center at the University of California, Berkeley. His publications include "The New Social Economy: Reworking the Division of Labor" and "The Conquest of Bread: 150 Years of California Agribusiness.""Richard Walker has written a sparkling history of the greening of the Bay Area that does much more than tell a fascinating untold story. In the tradition of Raymond Williams, "The Country in the City" throws the whole relationship between city and country into a fresh light, one that is not only bracing but which illuminates a path forward for green politics everywhere." -- Michael Pollan, author of "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and "The Botany of Desire""In dark times for those who care about the fate of the earth, here's some much needed sunlight from California: an inspiring and comprehensive account of green organizing in the Bay Area from John Muir to Carl Anthony and Urban Habitat." -- Mike Davis, author of "Planet of Slums" and "In Praise of Barbarians""Richard Walker's "The Country in the City" describes how fifty years of suburban developers, greenbelt alliances, grape-growers, dairy farmers, software startups, inner-city anti-toxics coalitions and others have shaped the San Francisco Bay Area as a patchwork of developed, reshaped, and protected space. This remarkable new classic also challenges not only conventional versions of the relationship between city and country, but the very definition of these two kinds of places." -- Rebecca Solnit, native San Franciscan and author of "A Field Guide to Getting Lost""This story has never been fully told, and Richard Walker, who lived many of the battles while teaching the next generation of warriors at UC Berkeley, has finally pulled the story together. There aren't many academic works from which a local activist can profitably learn-this is one of them." -- Carl Pope, Executive Director, Sierra Club"Walker has done in this book what essentially has never before been attempted by any other scholar for any other major American city: he has researched, analyzed, and narrated the evolving environmental politics of San Francisco from their origins in the nineteenth century to their explosive growth in the decades following the Second World War, right down to the present. . . . A first-rate piece of scholarship." -- from the Foreword by William Cronon"Walker has done a fantastic job of making both historical and contemporary urban environmental relationships engaging. The style is eloquent, pithy, and sometimes poetic. The Country in the City is an important contribution to urban environmental geography." -- Lisa Benton-Short, author of "The Presidio, from Army Post to National Park "
