Close Encounters of the Snarkian Kind Evertype

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Your ticket on this Snark hunting expedition through the snarkish imagination of Byron Sewell is good for several stops on planet Earth and far-off Jupiter! Our first stop is at Olosega, a volcanic doublet in the Manu'a group of the Samoan Islands, over a century ago, to learn about the true story of Robert Louis Stevenson's tragic encounter with a Boojum. From there our next two stops are in today's West Virginia to attend a meeting of the West Virginia Snark Hunting Society, followed by a deadbeat dad's encounter with someone intent on painting his trailer and pick-up truck with neon-pink polka dots. From there you will travel to Cologne where someone is visiting a psychiatrist seeking help for his ability to see live snarks that everyone attempts to convince him are just illusions. Our last stop is a close encounter on one of Jupiter's moons, eventually colonized after the sudden onset of an ice age across Earth's northern hemisphere, where the words of an ancient tale have the power to rip open a seam in the fabric of space-time and reveal a terrifying world where Boojums abound. Be sure to bring along a fork and some soap.

Better Angels of Our Nature Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This title is shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize 2012. This acclaimed book by Steven Pinker, author of "The Language Instinct" and "The Blank Slate", argues that, contrary to popular belief, humankind has become progressively less violent, over millenia and decades. Can violence really have declined? The images of conflict we see daily on our screens from around the world suggest this is an almost obscene claim to be making. Extraordinarily, however, Steven Pinker shows violence within and between societies - both murder and warfare - really has declined from prehistory to today. We are much less likely to die at someone else's hands than ever before. Even the horrific carnage of the last century, when compared to the dangers of pre-state societies, is part of this trend. Debunking both the idea of the 'noble savage' and an over-simplistic Hobbesian notion of a 'nasty, brutish and short' life, Steven Pinker argues that modernity and its cultural institutions are actually making us better people. "One of the most important books I've read - not just this year, but ever...For me, what's most important about "The Better Angels of Our Nature" are its insights into how to help achieve positive outcomes. How can we encourage a less violent, more just society, particularly for the poor? Steven Pinker shows us ways we can make those positive trajectories a little more likely. That's a contribution, not just to historical scholarship, but to the world". (Bill Gates). "Brilliant, mind-altering...Everyone should read this astonishing book". (David Runciman, "Guardian"). "A supremely important book. To have command of so much research, spread across so many different fields, is a masterly achievement. Pinker convincingly demonstrates that there has been a dramatic decline in violence, and he is persuasive about the causes of that decline". (Peter Singer, "New York Times"). "[A] sweeping new review of the history of human violence...[Pinker has] the kind of academic superbrain that can translate otherwise impenetrable statistics into a meaningful narrative of human behaviour ...impeccable scholarship". (Tony Allen-Mills, "Sunday Times"). "Written in Pinker's distinctively entertaining and clear personal style...a marvellous synthesis of science, history and storytelling". (Clive Cookson, "Financial Times"). "Pinker's scholarhsip is astounding ...flawless ...masterful". (Joanna Bourke, "The Times"). Steven Pinker is the Johnstone Family Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University. Until 2003, he taught in the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences at MIT. He conducts research on language and cognition, writes for publications such as "The New York Times", "Time" and "Slate", and is the author of six books, including "The Language Instinct", "How the Mind Works", "The Blank Slate" and "The Stuff of Thought".

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.

Dark Guardian #2 HarperTeen

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Chapter OneSupposedly, dreams reflect our hidden fears and secret desires, all clamoring for attention. The one I'd had last night had been so vivid that even now, as evening drew near, it still made me squirm in my chair. I sat against a wall in the counsel room where the elders and the Dark Guardians--protectors of our society--were discussing how best to ensure our survival. Because I hadn't yet experienced my first transformation, I was considered a novice and was not allowed to sit at the large, round table with the others. This was okay by me, because it gave me the freedom to let my mind wander--without anyone noticing that I wasn't paying attention.In my dream, I'd been standing in a clearing with my declared mate, Connor, our arms wrapped around each other so tightly that we could barely breathe. The full moon served as a spotlight.Then dark clouds drifted over the moon, and everything went black. Still holding him near, I was acutely aware of the muscles and bones in his body undulating against me. He grew taller and broader. My fingers were in his hair, and I felt the strands thicken and lengthen. His mouth covered mine, but his lips were fuller than before. The kiss was hungrier than any he'd ever given me. It heated me from head to toe, and I thought I knew what it was to be a candle, melting from the scorching flame. I knew I should move away, but I clung to him as though I'd drown in a sea of doubts if I let go.The hovering clouds floated away, and the moonlight illuminated us once again--only I was no longer in Connor's arms. Instead I was pressing my body against Rafe's, kissing him, yearning for his touch. . . .I shifted uncomfortably in my chair with the memory of how desperately I'd wanted Rafe. It was Connor I was supposed to long for. But I'd woken up in a tangle of sheets, clamoring for another of Rafe's touches--even if it were only in a dream.Squirming again, I felt a sharp elbow in my ribs."Be still, will you?" Brittany Reed whispered harshly beside me. Like me, she would soon be turning seventeen and would experience her first transformation with the next full moon.I'd known Brittany since kindergarten. We were friends, but I'd never felt as close to her as I did to Kayla--whom I'd met only last summer, when her adoptive parents had brought her to the park to face her past. We'd connected on a deep level almost as soon as we met. We'd spent the past year sharing our lives through emails, text messages, and phone calls.During the last full moon she'd discovered that she was one of us and that Lucas Wilde was her destined mate. I can't imagine how frightening it would be to have so little time to prepare. We Shifters can't control the first transformation. When the full moon rises, our bodies react to its call. But now Kayla sat at the table with the others. The summer solstice, the longest day of the year, is usually a time when as many of our kind as possible come together to celebrate our existence. But this year a pall hung over us as we gathered at Wolford, a village hidden deep within a huge national forest near the Canadian border. All that remained there of what had once been a vibrant community were a few small buildings and the massive, mansionlike structure that serves as the home of the elders who rule over us. The residence also houses most of us when we're here for the solstice celebration.We've always been a secret society. Even though we have lived among the rest of the world, we show our true selves only to each other. But recently, we discovered that Lucas's older brother had betrayed us by telling someone in the outside world about our existence. Now some scientists who work for a medical research company called Bio-Chrome were determined to capture us and discover what makes us tick--or more important, what makes us transform. They wanted to patent this ability, develop it, and use it for their own financial gain. But being dissected and studied wasn't how any of us wanted to spend our summer vacation.Although we hadn't seen any signs of Bio-Chrome scientists since Lucas and Kayla had escaped from their clutches, none of us believed they'd given up their quest so easily. We were all on edge because we could sense an impending confrontation--the way animals sense a coming storm. Nature had made us attuned to danger. It was the reason we hadn't gone the way of the dinosaur.

Refabricating City: a Reflection Oxford University Press (China) Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This publication is at once a record of and a reflection on the Biennale. The book consists of four main parts. The first part Forum features interviews with Ralph Lerner, Chang Yung-ho, Rocco Yim and Wang Weijen, as well as Leo Lee's interpretation, Zhu Tao's and Ruan Ching-Yue's critiques, Liu Jiakun's and Huang Sheng Yuan's reflections on the Biennale. We also invited twenty participants of the Biennale for their feedbacks, and the first members of the Steering Committee to share with us the origins of the Biennale. These various texts, by commenting on common issues such as the uniqueness of Hong Kong's urban spaces vs. the ordinariness of her architecture, the role and future of the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Biennale, historical buildings and the meaning of public space, provide us valuable references for strategizing on the future of our architecture and city. The second part Exhibition, which makes up the main content of this book, presents our visual record of all exhibits. The third part Venue and Event documents our understanding of the Central Police Station, the design and implementation, as well as the curatorial planning and program. The fourth part is Lecture and Dialogue, which includes five main lectures and six dialogue events covering important topics related to the Biennale theme: refabrication and regeneration, memory and future, the global and the local, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, urbanism and landscape. In the course of editing this book, the 2009 Biennale has already launched in West Kowloon, and the direction of Central Police Station Compound and West Kowloon Planning has also became clearer. At the same time, citizen protests on the development of high-speed railway start to grip the attention of the Hong Kong media. This reminds us of the situation on the eve of the Biennale opening two years ago, when conservation activists and the media questioned the usage of historical buildings as the venue for an architecture biennale. In dealing with this crisis, we came to realize that what we were faced with were our frustrated citizens, who suffered chronically under the hegemony of procedural rationality, and who just had the urban memory of Star Ferry and Queen's Pier wiped out. We requested our exhibiters to amend their exhibit design in the last minute to leave intact any of the internal furnishings, not because we shared the nostalgic attitude of treating historical architecture as untouchable antiques, but because we believed this Biennale also took part in the urban process of shaping our public space: it was an urban process of consensus-building and negotiation for a shared urban value. If every biennale could become an urban process of what Michel de Certeau theorized as the "practice of everyday life", it could certainly in many ways inspire our cultural imagination on space. Through the exhibits' interpretation and appropriation of a walled colonial prison compound, and the visitors' occupation of prison cells and courtyards, the 2007 Biennale engendered a double reading between architectural display and urban history. By setting up temporary exhibition structures and landscape in West Kowloon, the 2009 Biennale, opened up the public's experience, reflection and projection of this future cultural space. By bringing our citizens into the exhibition venue, it is hoped that the Biennales will lead them to look into the spatial possibilities of the architecture: In what form should the public space take? What kind of cultural forum should it provide? What sort of strategy on public space will the government's new proposals offer? Whether it is the Biennale at Central Police Station or at the West Kowloon, through an urban processes of exploration in public space and participation in cultural forums, would our citizens be able to generate discourses to counter or negotiate with the procedural rationality, therefore be ready to state clearly what is needed for our city is more than an iconic landmark, but a public realm that allows everyone to interchange on all levels?

Andrew Jackson Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Andrew Jackson: President of the United States of America The number of years during which this distinguished man, one of the three mountain peaks in our country's history, has been slumbering in his grave are now such as to permit a just and proper appreciation of his character. The flames of political warfare through which he tread so fearlessly when alive are extinguished. His contemporaries, friends and enemies alike, have passed away, and while they may be allowed to furnish the evidence in the faith of which, when sifted, he will ultimately be judged, posterity alone is the competent authority to assign to him his place in the annals of our race, and to award to General Jackson that reputation which is forever his glory, or that reputation which is to be forever his shrine. Whatever may be the result of the attempt I am about to make to present a profile view, rather than a complete sketch, of this remarkable man, I am encouraged to hope that in the minds of my readers - and through them in those of our posterity, I may place even a dimly shining lamp shedding new light upon Jackson's character as a man, a man "from whom our daughters would receive as from knights of old, the Chastest reverence - the most ardent protection. To whom we could safely lead our sons for examples of as modest patriotism as but few of this world's military heroes have ever furnished." The view before you pictures him in his Major Generals uniform, painted so wonderfully well by the artist Earl who lived at "The Hermitage" for over twenty years, dying so unexpectedly that he had to leave the last artistic touches unfinished. The artist's wife was a niece of Mrs. Rachel Jackson and dying in the first year of her marriage. General and Mrs. Jackson urged the artist to make his home with them, giving to him not only a life long home and liberal patronage, but a last resting place in the Hermitage garden near the tomb. This artist was greatly beloved by the whole family, having very amiable qualities of character. Of him General Jackson writes just after his death: "I have met with a great bereavement. I have lost my friend, Colonel Earl, who died on the 16th instant, after a few days of sickness. He was my steadfast friend, my traveling companion; he was pure, upright and an honest man; but a kind Providence has removed him from me to a happier realm than this. I will soon follow him, I hope, to meet him where there is rest." About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
