Book Excerpt :

Violence takes many forms. From large-scale acts of terrorism to assaults on single individuals, violence is a defining force in shaping human experience and a central theme in anthropological study. Violence: Ethnographic Encounters presents a set of vivid first-hand accounts of fieldwork experiences of violence. The examples range across Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa, and illustrate instances of state terror, insurgency, communal violence, war, prison violence, class conflict, security measures, and sexual violence. How do these anthropologists come to know a place through such violent experience? Why do they not leave such scenes? What insights follow from such experience? Violence: Ethnographic Encounters offers readers a broad anthropological study of violence through personal encounters.

Book Short Summary:

This volume in the 21st Century Oxford Authors series offers students and readers an authoritative, comprehensive selection of the work of Sir Thomas Browne (1605-1682). Accompanied by full scholarly apparatus, the edition demonstrates the breadth of the author of some of the most brilliant and delirious prose in English Literature. Lauded by writers ranging from Coleridge to Virginia Woolf, from Borges to W.G. Sebald, Browne's distinct style and the musicality of his phrasing have long been seen as a pinnacle of early modern prose. However, it is Browne's range of subject matter that makes him truly distinct. His writings include the hauntingly meditative Urn-Burial, and the elaborate The Garden of Cyrus, a work that borders on a madness of infinite pattern. Religio Medici, probably Browne's most famous work, is at once autobiography, intricate religious-scientific paradox, and a monument of tolerance in the era of the English civil war. This volume also includes his Pseudodoxia Epidemica, an encyclopaedia of error which contains within its vast remit the entire intellectual landscape of the seventeenth century-its science, its natural history, its painting, its history, its geography and its biblical oddities. The volume enables students to experience the ways in which Browne brings his lucid, baroque and stylish prose to bear across this range of diverse material, together with a carefully poised wit. This volume contains almost all of the author's work that was published in his lifetime, as well as a selection of writings published after his death. Explanatory notes and commentary are included, to enhance the study, understanding, and enjoyment of these works, and the edition includes an Introduction to the life and works of Browne.

Book Short Summary:

A brother and sister occupy their family home, which has been linked to a series of unfortune events including the death of its original owner. They attempt to avoid their ancestor’s fate and escape their looming legacy. Hepzibah and Clifford Pyncheon live in a historic manor that has been in their family for generations. The property was built in the seventeenth century on stolen land that originally belonged to Matthew Maule. He was targeted, detained and eventually executed after being suspected of witchcraft. The legend claims Maule cursed the Pyncheon family, leading to a string of unexplained events starting with the death of the home’s new owner. In the present, Hepzibah and Clifford are struggling with their financial, mental and emotional burdens. The House of the Seven Gables is a rich and haunting tale set in Hawthorne’s native New England. It’s a multigenerational story that thrives on mystery, suspense and elements of Gothic horror. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The House of Seven Gables is both modern and readable.

Book Short Summary:

Declining bird populations, especially those that breed in North American grasslands, have stimulated extensive research on factors that affect nest failure and reduced reproductive success. Until now, this research has been hampered by the difficulties inherent in observing nest activities. Video Surveillance of Nesting Birds highlights the use of miniature video cameras and recording equipment yielding new important and some unanticipated insights into breeding bird biology, including previously undocumented observations of hatching, incubation, fledging, diurnal and nocturnal activity patterns, predator identification, predator-prey interactions, and cause-specific rates of nest loss. This seminal contribution to bird reproductive biology uses tools capable of generating astonishing results with the potential for fresh insights into bird conservation, management, and theory.

Book Short Summary:

Mickey, the narrator of this book, looks back at his life growing up in Tilburn, thirty miles out of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. In reflecting on his life, Mickey explores how children let the world in rather than judging it at a safe distance. We inevitably get hurt in the process, and we carry wounds – until we have the courage to revisit them. A theme of the book is that if we revisit our stories with fierce compassion, they can work to free us rather than enslave us. They can become our most trusted companions as we realise we have all we need. In sharing stories from his life from a very early age, Mickey explores wonders and horrors, inviting the mysterious alchemy of wounds becoming gifts. Join Mickey on a journey that seeks to get everyone to a place where they lay down their masks, shed their armor, and put down their swords to let the distant voice of truth speak as they find their true selves.

Book Short Summary:

This is a true crime and corruption story. I was born in California. My father killed someone and went to jail, so my little sister Charlotte and I were adopted by a wealthy aunt and uncle in Fort Worth, Texas. My father beat his case in court by self-defense and joined us in Texas, but we were still adopted. We went to the best schools, wore the best clothes, and took music and dancing lessons. We had the best home any child could have with all the opportunities in the world. As teens, my sister and I worked in one of our adoptive father’s office. However, I grew rebellious and became a stripper and eventually got with gangsters and became one myself. I was married to three mob bosses and became one myself as they did prison time. Eventually, I got a fifty-year prison sentence by crooked cops who murdered a young man after robbing his parents of $3 million in jewels. There was a cover-up, and they are yet to be arrested for it. My prayer is to see them pay for that murder.
