Book Short Summary:

A frequent problem area for fiction writers is characterization. If writers jump headlong into a story with only a fuzzy notion about the people who are in it, the result is a collection of characters who are cliched, stereotypical and not very interesting. Creating Characters is an easy to use reference work that looks at character development from many different angles. The book does not tell writers how to write. Instead, it generates a thought process by asking crucial questions about characters' internal and external traits, wants, needs, likes, dislikes, fears, beliefs, strengths, weaknesses, habits and backgrounds. Following these questions, the writer will find an ever deeper and wider array of options. Thus, Creating Characters helps writers delve as deeply into a character's psychology as they want. All characters, and the stories they people, can be made richer and more compelling.

This devotional book is about their stories. The 90 devotions feature the qualities of Bible characters that made them heroic. From Moses to Esther to Jesus, kids will learn more about how these Bible people pleased God. They will know that qualities like courage, worshiping God, and being a true friend are heroic actions.

Book Short Summary:

Essay from the year 2002 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,2 (A), LMU Munich (American Institute), course: American History, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: When the town Baden-Baden gave the German Media Price to Rudy Giuliani in February 2002, I was very surprised. Certainly the price was awarded for Giuliani′s great Leadership in very difficult times, but how could the committee have forgotten everything what happened before September 11th? Had Rudy Giuliani, a man who was criticized especially in Germany for his merciless behaviour toward homeless people and minority groups, now also become a hero in Germany? Before deciding what kind of character Rudy Giuliani really is, it is important to take a closer look at his background and political career. Rudolph W. Giuliani was born in a working class family in Brooklyn, New York in 1944. He is the grandson of Italian immigrants. He attended Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School (Class of ′61) in Brooklyn. In high school Giuliani had been what Americans call an "extracurricular activity junkie" (Barret and Fifield 34). He was a member of the baseball and weightlifting teams. He participated in a charity club, and even as a freshman he liked to take on responsibility and was voted homeroom president. As he grew older his interest in politics increased and he spent long nights with friends "discussing philosophy, religion and politics" (Barret and Fifield 35). In those discussions Giuliani always claimed to be a young man with very high moral standards. At the end of his senior year he was awarded "Class Politician" (Barret and Fifield 36) by his classmates. At that time nobody could have known how right their decision was. In the fall of 1961 Giuliani enrolled in Manhattan College (Class of ′65) in the Bronx. The atmosphere at the all-male college was similar to his high school. There was a mandatory dress code, tardiness was treated harshly, liquor was banned from campus and women were not allowed in the dormitories. Rudy Giuliani graduated in 1965 with honors but not with magna cum laude, a fact he often emphasizes. In the fall of 1965 Giuliani entered Law school at New York University (Barret and Fifield 37-41). Rudy was already politically active at that time and a classmate remembers him as a "real Robert F. Kennedy democrat, a liberal, except on law and order" (Barret and Fifield 53). Giuliani had deeply admired Bobby Kennedy and when he was murdered "[he] thought [his] presence in national politics was irreplaceable" (Barret and Fifield 55) [...]

A Hero of Our Time

  • Pdf File: a-hero-of-our-time.pdf

Book Short Summary:

A typical Byronic-hero novel, Lermontov’s protagonist bombards the reader with his bipolar behavior: both sensitive and cynical, his extreme arrogance borders on deep melancholy. An existential dreamer and contemplator of the futility of life, Pechorin’s free will inevitably leads him to disaster. And hand in hand with the beautiful natural descriptions, "A Hero of Our Time" is a book that never stops providing, even when one has reached its end. It was highly praised by the other great names in Russian literature – Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, and Anton Chekhov. Often labelled the most important Russian poet after Alexander Pushkin, Mikhail Lermontov was also a painter, often praised for his naturalist depictions of Caucasus. He died in a duel (just like Pushkin) at the early age of 26, but that did not thwart his poetic endeavours. Despite his naturalistic poetic grandeour, Lermontov’s best-known novel "A Hero of Our Time" is one of the founding works of Russian prose. Among his poems, "Demon" and "The Death of the Poet" occupy a central place in his work. His interests also included folklore, history, and patriotism.

Book Short Summary:

Men inherit definitions about manhood, but many of these definitions no longer fit. A society that was once based on power, assumptions, and stereotypes is changing. Few people take time to learn about the history of male oppression, the foundations of male masculinity, and the evolution of the modern man. Join author Rod E. Keays as he examines these important topics and more, including why boys and men accept certain roles; why men bully each other; why it’s important to deal with emotions; and why it’s so hard for men to talk about sexuality. Keays explores his own experiences coping with the twists and turns that come with being a man. One thing he learns early on is that most men don’t talk about their emotional highs and lows. As someone who likes to talk openly and frankly, he feels isolated, but he continues living life on his terms. Discover what good men have been doing for thousands of years and how men’s groups can help men achieve their goals. The world may have its share of problems, but The Naturally Good Man continues to contribute to society.

  • Pdf File: hunger.pdf

Book Short Summary:

A true classic of modern literature that has been described as "one of the most disturbing novels in existence" (Time Out), Hunger is the story of a Norwegian artist who wanders the streets, struggling on the edge of starvation. As hunger overtakes him, he slides inexorably into paranoia and despair. The descent into madness is recounted by the unnamed narrator in increasingly urgent and disjointed prose, as he loses his grip on reality. Arising from Hamsun's belief that literature ought to be about the mysterious workings of the human mind -- an attempt, he wrote, to describe "the whisper of the blood and the pleading of the bone marrow" -- Hunger is a landmark work that pointed the way toward a new kind of novel. "The whole modern school of fiction in the twentieth century stems from Hamsun. They were all Hamsun's disciples: Thomas Mann and Arthur Schnitzler . . . and even such American writers are Fitzgerald and Hemingway." —Isaac Bashevis Singer

Book Short Summary:

Cinematic depictions of real U.S. presidents from Abraham Lincoln to George W. Bush explore how Hollywood movies represent American history and politics on screen. Morgan and his contributors show how films blend myth and reality to present a positive message about presidents as the epitome of America's values and idealism until unpopular foreign wars in Vietnam and Iraq led to a darker portrayal of the imperial presidency, operated by Richard Nixon and Bush 43. This exciting new collection further considers how Hollywood has continually reinterpreted historically significant presidents, notably Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, and Franklin D. Roosevelt, to fit the times in which movies about them were made.

Book Short Summary:

Beyond Live/Work: the architecture of home-based work explores the old but neglected building type that combines dwelling and workplace, the ‘workhome’. It traces a previously untold architectural history illustrated by images of largely forgotten buildings. Despite having existed for hundreds, if not thousands, of years in every country across the globe this dual-use building type has long gone unnoticed. This book analyses the lives and premises of 90 contemporary UK and US home-based workers from across the social spectrum and in diverse occupations. It generates a series of typologies and design considerations for the workhome that will be useful for design professionals, students, policy-makers and home-based workers themselves. In the context of a globalising economy, more women in work than ever before and enabling new technologies, the home-based workforce is growing rapidly. Demonstrating how this can be a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable working practice, this book presents the workhome as the house of the future.

This new edition of a classic book on the impact of the Vietnam War on Americans reintroduces the haunted voices of the Vietnam era to a new generation of readers.

Book Short Summary:

In this striking tragedy of political conflict, Shakespeare turns to the ancient Roman world and to the famous assassination of Julius Caesar by his republican opponents. The play is one of tumultuous rivalry, of prophetic warnings–“Beware the ides of March”–and of moving public oratory, “Friends, Romans, countrymen!” Ironies abound and most of all for Brutus, whose fate it is to learn that his idealistic motives for joining the conspiracy against a would-be dictator are not enough to sustain the movement once Caesar is dead. Each Edition Includes: • Comprehensive explanatory notes • Vivid introductions and the most up-to-date scholarship • Clear, modernized spelling and punctuation, enabling contemporary readers to understand the Elizabethan English • Completely updated, detailed bibliographies and performance histories • An interpretive essay on film adaptations of the play, along with an extensive filmography
