Book Excerpt :

Roman experimental metafizic, Adam si Eva iese în evidență prin universul ficțional întru totul coerent și simetric, în care metempsihoza funcționează ca principiu esențial. Dihotomii precum bine/rau sau sacru/profan fuseseră consumate narativ în perioada în care Liviu Rebreanu își scria romanul, dar mitul complementarității androginice continuă să producă ficțiune și astăzi, absorbit în cultura de masă și constant reinventat, figurând adesea ca unica abatere de la cinism și cartezianism a protagoniștilor. Romanul acesta este un bun studiu de caz pentru a înțelege felul în care se raporta Romania interbelică la unele geografii și epoci prea puțin familiare, dar și pentru a observa care erau strategiile reconstructive ale lui Rebreanu.

Book Short Summary:

African theology involves theology that reflects the original thinking of African people. Many African have expressed a need for the theology that reflects the original thinking of African peoples. Some theologians have recklessly labeled every aspect of African culture to be evil whereas others have expressed contempt regarding Christianity wrapped in Europeans culture. Having stayed away from my culture for more than twenty years, I have encountered several cultural shocks. My personal experience has induced me to invest time into intensive researching on the issue of culture and Christianity in anticipation to help somebody puzzled and drowned in confusion. I mean somebody who will not draw a diving line between the two aspects of lives. Within every cultural background setting, there is a godly culture that is not in conflict with Christianity. The culture of man apart from God equals to corruption. God created culture and He sent His Son to restore and to preserve the moral values of the cultures. The godly culture of man should therefore not be in conflict with the culture of the Bible. This topic has been produced in a series of teachings in different volumes of books for deeper clarification. I advise you to read all of the series available for your spiritual growth.

Book Short Summary:

It was his mission to save her life. But first... he'd need to convince her that hers was a life worth saving. Will Stark finds himself on a mission. He must use his new Energy abilities - abilities long thought the realm of magic by humanity - and his army of self-aware nanobots to save the life of a young woman named Elizabeth. Elizabeth is treated as if she is a slave, forced to endure all manner of human testing to find the method to unlock all human potential. It is treatment encouraged by a man named Arthur - her father - and it is her fondest wish that her father treat her as his beloved child rather than a piece of property. She refuses to leave until she's reformed him, for she believes that if he cannot change, she herself is predestined to be a monster, and a person not worthy of living. She'll fight to change Arthur, with Will's help, until she succeeds. Or until she's buried next to her mother, who sought the same reform - and was murdered for trying.

Book Short Summary:

How to get your Fifty Shades on... For anyone who’s felt...inspired...after reading Fifty Shades of Grey, The Book of Kink both entertains and enlightens, showing you the who, what, where, why, and how of kink. People everywhere are into kinky sex. For some, it's a way to spice up a withered sex life; for others, it's a way of life. No matter how or why we do it, kinky sex is as old as Adam and Eve and as commonplace as your next-door neighbor. For example, did you know: Japan organized the largest orgy ever caught on tape, featuring 500 participants? A Berlin hotel offers different rooms dedicated to kinky sex, including one with a coffin? Those who are into having sex with an armpit have a fetish called axillism? There is a university dedicated entirely to love and sex called the Loveology University? The Book of Kink is an entertaining and enlightening look into all things beyond the pale when it comes to sex. Exploring everything from equipment, sex classes, sex parties, and porn to the who, what, where, when, why, and how of kink, it delves into fetishes, turn-ons, role-playing, and how the Internet has put a new spin on kinkiness. It is an X-rated romp through cultural and social history and contemporary mores. Whether you're appalled to learn that people actually do this or are relieved to find out that you're not the only one, you'll never see sex the same way again.

Book Short Summary:

In linguistics, one of the main areas of modern research involves the capabilities and possibilities of there being a "lingua cosmica," a LINCOS, a universal language that could be used to communicate with non-human intelligences. This book touches on the area of the development and use of a "lingua universalis" for interstellar communication, but it also presents concepts that cover a broad area of linguistics. Chomsky's paradigm on universal properties of natural languages, for a long time a leading general theory of natural languages, includes the strong assumption that humans are born with some kind of universals stored in their brains. Are there universals of this kind of language used by intelligent beings and societies elsewhere in the universe? We do not know whether such languages exist. It seems to be impossible to determine, simply because the universe is too large for an exhaustive search. Even verification will be hard to obtain, without quite a bit of luck. This book uses astrolinguistic principles in message construction and is helpful in clarifying and giving perspective to discussions on existential questions such as these.

"All three character driven two-act plays in Beyond the Abyss Adams Daughter, Common Ground, and Sederare set in present day Chicago. Of note, while each explores themes that attend the tragedy of Holocaust, none of the plays attempts to portray the vile and violent conditions inside concentration or death camps. Rather, the plays portray the profound moral, social, and psychological ramifications of the Shoah as the horrors and dislocations of World War II continue to influence modern Jewish life."

ICALP is a series of annual conferences of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS) which ?rst took place in 1972. This year, the ICALP program consisted of the established track A (focusing on algorithms, complexity and games) and track B (focusing on logic, automata, semantics and theory of programming), and of the recently introduced track C (in 2009 focusing on foundations of networked computation). In response to the call for papers, the Program Committee received 370 s- missions: 223 for track A, 84 for track B and 63 for track C. Out of these, 108 papers were selected for inclusion in the scienti?c program: 62 papers for track A, 24 for track B and 22 for track C. The selection was made by the Program Committees based on originality, quality, and relevance to theoretical computer science. The quality of the manuscripts was very high indeed, and many dese- ing papers could not be selected. ICALP 2009 consisted of ?ve invited lectures and the contributed papers.

Book Short Summary:

Secular and religious thinkers agree: the sexual revolution is one of the most important milestones in human history. Perhaps nothing has changed life for so many, so fast, as the severing of sex and procreation. But what has been the result? This ground-breaking book by noted essayist and author Mary Eberstadt contends that sexual freedom has paradoxically produced widespread discontent. Drawing on sociologists Pitirim Sorokin, Carle Zimmerman, and others; philosopher G.E.M. Anscombe and novelist Tom Wolfe; and a host of feminists, food writers, musicians, and other voices from across today's popular culture, Eberstadt makes her contrarian case with an impressive array of evidence. Her chapters range across academic disciplines and include supporting evidence from contemporary literature and music, women's studies, college memoirs, dietary guides, advertisements, television shows, and films. Adam and Eve after the Pill examines as no book has before the seismic social changes caused by the sexual revolution. In examining human behavior in the post-liberation world, Eberstadt provocatively asks: Is food the new sex? Is pornography the new tobacco? Adam and Eve after the Pill will change the way readers view the paradoxical impact of the sexual revolution on ideas, morals, and humanity itself.

Book Short Summary:

The biblical story of paradise sits deeply in the collective memory of the human race – at least within the three large monotheistic religions Judaism, Christianity and Islam – and is today one of best known texts in all of literature. The few terms "snake," "sin" and "apple" suffice to call this story to memory. And many major questions of human life are contained within this tale: How does man treat his environment? What is man's relationship to other creatures on earth? What is the relationship between males and females? How can we describe the situation of a man and that of a woman? How did death enter the world? There have been interpretations of the story in all three monotheistic religions which were passed down in a multitude of in part very colorful legends. The most importants themes would seem to the origin of evil, the power of sin and the options humans have to free themselves from guilt. Whereas Judaism and Islam emphasize the meaning of divine directives, Paul made the typological correspondence between Adam and Christ the core of his salvation teachings.This, the fourth volume in the series "Judaism, Christianity and Islam" first introduces the biblical story of paradise and then describes clearly and in layman's terms the various traditions that connect the three major monotheistic religions with the story of Adam and Eve. We come to see them as a part of the common tradition without destroying the boundaries and differences between the three religions.

De ce ar trebui să privim îndeaproape și să studiem viețile patriarhilor? Care este adevărul despre evoluție? De ce este ea o înșelătorie incredibilă? În a cui asemănare a fost creată omenirea? De ce a fost Enoh răpit la cer, fără să moară sau să fie îngropat? Cum a știut Noe cât de mare să construiască arca? Cum a distrus marele potop totul, în afara corăbiei și a familiei lui Noe? Care au fost prietenii lui Dumnezeu? Cum a primit Solomon înțelepciune? Această carte începe cu Geneza, însă include și mărturii biblice care au fost scrise de istorici din vechime, de femei și bărbați ai lui Dumnezeu și care au fost confirmate de cercetători de-a lungul secolelor. Pe măsură ce învățăm din trecut, vom evita dificultățile din viitor. Veți examină tăriile și slăbiciunile liderilor-lucrurile care i-au făcut să fie mari și cele care i-au făcut să cadă.

Book Short Summary:

First published in 1984, Gerald Bordman's Oxford Companion to American Theatre is the standard one-volume source on our national theatre. Critics have hailed its "wealth of authoritative information" (Back Stage), its "fascinating picture of the volatile American stage" (The Guardian), and its "well-chosen, illuminating facts" (Newsday). Now thoroughly revised, this distinguished volume once again provides an up-to-date guide to the American stage from its beginnings to the present. Completely updated by theater professor Thomas Hischak, the volume includes playwrights, plays, actors, directors, producers, songwriters, famous playhouses, dramatic movements, and much more. The book covers not only classic works (such as Death of a Salesman) but also many commercially successful plays (such as Getting Gertie's Garter), plus entries on foreign figures that have influenced our dramatic development (from Shakespeare to Beckett and Pinter). New entries include recent plays such as Angels in America and Six Degrees of Separation, performers such as Eric Bogosian and Bill Irwin, playwrights like David Henry Hwang and Wendy Wasserstein, and relevant developments and issues including AIDS in American theatre, theatrical producing by Disney, and the rise in solo performance. Accessible and authoritative, this valuable A-Z reference is ideal not only for students and scholars of theater, but everyone with a passion for the stage.

Staging, Playing, Pyrotechnics and Magic: Conventions of Performance in Early English Theatre

  • Pdf File: staging-playing-pyrotechnics-and-magic.pdf

Book Short Summary:

In this selection of research articles Butterworth focuses on investigation of the practical and technical means by which early English theatre, from the fifteenth to the early seventeenth century, was performed. Matters of staging for both 'pageant vehicle' and 'theatre-in-the-round' are described and analysed to consider their impact on playing by players, expositors, narrators and prompters. All these operators also functioned to promote the closely aligned disciplines of pyrotechnics and magic (legerdemain or sleight of hand) which also influence the nature of the presented theatre. The sixteen chapters form four clearly identified parts—staging, playing, pyrotechnics and magic—and drawing on a wealth of primary source material, Butterworth encourages the reader to rediscover and reappreciate the actors, magicians, wainwrights and wheelwrights, pyrotechnists, and (in modern terms) the special effects people and event managers who brought these early texts to theatrical life on busy city streets and across open arenas. The chapters variously explore and analyse the important backwaters of material culture that enabled, facilitated and shaped performance yet have received scant scholarly attention. It is here, among the itemised payments to carpenters and chemists, the noted requirements of mechanics and wheelwrights, or tucked away among the marginalia of suppliers of staging and ingenious devices that Butterworth has made his stamping ground. This is a fascinating introduction to the very ‘nuts and bolts’ of early theatre. Staging, Playing, Pyrotechnics and Magic: Conventions of Performance in Early English Theatre is a closely argued celebration of stagecraft that will appeal to academics and students of performance, theatre history and medieval studies as well as history and literature more broadly. It constitutes the eighth volume in the Routledge series Shifting Paradigms in Early English Drama Studies and continues the valuable work of that series (of which Butterworth is a general editor) in bringing significant and expert research articles to a wider audience.

Book Short Summary:

The Business of American Theatre is a research guide to the history of producing theatre in the United States. Covering a wide range of subjects, the book explores how traditions of investment, marketing, labor union contracts, advertising, leasing arrangements, ticket scalping, zoning ordinances, royalties, and numerous other financial transactions have influenced the art of theatre for the past three centuries. Yet the book is not a dry reiteration of hits and flops, bankruptcies and bamboozles. Nor does it cover "everything about it that's appealing, everything the traffic will allow" (as Irving Berlin did in the song "There's No Business Like Show Business"). It is instead a highly readable resource for anyone interested in how money, and how much money, is critical to the art and artists of theatre. Many of those artists make appearances in the book: Richard Rodgers and his keen eye for investment, Jacob Shubert and his construction of "the bridge of thighs" for his showgirls at the Winter Garden, the significance of the Disney Souvenir Shop near the Lyceum Theatre on Broadway, and the difference between a Broadway show losing millions of dollars or making billions in one night. Consider this book a go-to resource for readers, students, and scholars of the theatre business.

Book Short Summary:

The greatest journeys in life are often those taken in silence, with no one else watching. They are the journeys of self-discovery, when one learns one’s true history and destiny. They are the times when self-discipline must trump the massive desire to act in a manner that offers a short term benefit… but a long term disaster. Adam long knew he faced such a journey. He didn’t know how he’d ever begin; fate seemed stacked against him. And yet he knew the stakes, knew that his failure — or his discovery — could doom him and those he loves most. And then… fate smiled on him. For just a few brief moments, the window opened, and he commenced that journey. He—and the world—would never be the same.

“Endlessly illuminating and a sheer pleasure to read.” —Jack Miles, author of God: A Biography Daring to take the great biblical account of human origins seriously, but without credulity The most influential story in Western cultural history, the biblical account of Adam and Eve is now treated either as the sacred possession of the faithful or as the butt of secular jokes. Here, acclaimed scholar Stephen Greenblatt explores it with profound appreciation for its cultural and psychological power as literature. From the birth of the Hebrew Bible to the awe-inspiring contributions of Augustine, Dürer, and Milton in bringing Adam and Eve to vivid life, Greenblatt unpacks the story’s many interpretations and consequences over time. Rich allegory, vicious misogyny, deep moral insight, narrow literalism, and some of the greatest triumphs of art and literature: all can be counted as children of our “first” parents.

Book Short Summary:

The beautiful Eva da Silva was something of a soul seeker. She wanted to make a difference in the lives of others by showing love. The unexpected appearance of the mysterious and attractive RJ literally on her doorstep did not prepare her for what that would take. Someone was watching RJ, and a dangerous man wanted him dead. Needless to say, RJ was a complicated man with a complicated life. He had almost died, and the woman who had saved him was going to make it even more complicated. He had serious matters he had to take care of, and Eva da Silva was a distraction he didn’t need; however beautiful and welcome. Eva had family issues to worry about. What she didn’t need or was prepared for was the deep and unexpected attraction she felt for RJ, his questionable life, or the turmoil that she was about to experience because of it. Eva’s faith was about to be tested. RJ’s world came with violence, repressed anger, a burdensome guilt, huge responsibilities, and old buried secrets. He would have to be successful in his mission, and then get his life and those of others on the right track. Doors of long ago would have to be unlocked, past sins would have to be faced, and deep secrets would have to be revealed. This is a story of faith, of second chances, and the desperate quest of love. Eva saved RJ’s life, but can a soul seeker also save a lost soul?

Book Short Summary:

This book presents what in our opinion constitutes the basis of the theory of the mu-calculus, considered as an algebraic system rather than a logic. We have wished to present the subject in a unified way, and in a form as general as possible. Therefore, our emphasis is on the generality of the fixed-point notation, and on the connections between mu-calculus, games, and automata, which we also explain in an algebraic way. This book should be accessible for graduate or advanced undergraduate students both in mathematics and computer science. We have designed this book especially for researchers and students interested in logic in computer science, comuter aided verification, and general aspects of automata theory. We have aimed at gathering in a single place the fundamental results of the theory, that are currently very scattered in the literature, and often hardly accessible for interested readers. The presentation is self-contained, except for the proof of the Mc-Naughton's Determinization Theorem (see, e.g., [97]. However, we suppose that the reader is already familiar with some basic automata theory and universal algebra. The references, credits, and suggestions for further reading are given at the end of each chapter.

Book Short Summary:

Gabriella The problem was simple. I was being thrust into a life I wasn’t sure I could or wanted to handle. It’s one thing to date or be married to a rich guy. But this is different. Phillippe and his family weren’t just rich, they were part of the secret rich. They were the kind of people who build hospitals, community centers, sponsor the arts, fund research, influence politicians…elect politicians. When things began to get serious, he told me there were things he couldn’t tell me. I just had no idea, they included so many zeroes. I’m not stupid or naive. I knew Phillippe was well off, but this is way beyond my imagination. It’s also a world I’m not sure I want to live in. Sometimes love and great sex aren’t enough to build a marriage on. Phillippe I wasn’t used to these feelings. In a matter of months Gabriella had infected my blood stream. I wasn’t the same. I wasn’t a cocky arrogant boorish man. It’s like that man died the moment I laid eyes on the petite curvy ball of love, I was privileged and honored to call my wife. I thought about going over to the manor, but I didn’t want to face Mere. I was ashamed to tell her, I messed up things and may have lost the love of my life. The other reason I didn’t want to go there was my grandfather. If he were there I don’t think I’d…in my current state, I couldn’t be sure I wouldn’t do him physical harm. He was the reason I was in this mess. If it hadn’t been for him insisting I get married and me being so stubborn, I never would have gotten involved with Gabriella. Now because of his interference, I may have lost the only woman I will ever love.

Book Short Summary:

Mr. Schlegel has abstracted all the genealogical information that appeared in the Northern Irish newspaper the Londonderry Journal from its inception in June 1772 through the end of 1784. While marriage notices predominate, researchers will also encounter reference to birthds, deaths and separations, estate settlements, and notices of persons emigrating to North America. All told, this fully indexed publication identifies some 2,000 Irish men and women, and it should be especially useful in tracing 18th-century Scotch-Irish ancestors
