Book description


UKIYO-E, the art of woodblock design and printing, enjoyed a symbiosis with the kabuki theatre almost from its inception in the late 17th century, with a significant number of images devoted to the popular theatre. These comprise kabuki-e – dynamic frames, diptychs and triptychs recreating specific scenes from plays – and yakusha-e – portraits of famous actors in various roles both real and imaginary. Amongst those producing theatrical prints were some of the greatest ukiyo-e artists of the century, including Kunisada, Kuniyoshi, and finally Kunichika, who introduced dramatic new framing to the format and persisted until the very last days of the century, when prints were finally usurped by the new medium of photography. DREAM SPECTRES 2 is devoted to the art of kabuki-e and yakusha-e, and collects some of the most striking and innovative prints by these and many other artists, focusing principally on three of the Japanese theatre’s most spectacular and sensational themes – ghosts, magic, and mayhem. DREAM SPECTRES 2 is presented in large-format and full-colour throughout, and contains over 200 stunning images which vividly bring back to life the violent clashes, murders, monsters and nightmares of Japan’s classical kabuki theatre at its most bizarre and exhilarating extremes. Number 15 in the best-selling Ukiyo-e Master Series.

Book description


This is a history of a stateless people, the Carpatho-Rusyns, and their historic homeland, Carpathian Rus', located in the heart of central Europe. A little over 100,000 Carpatho-Rusyns are registered in official censuses but their population is estimated at around 1,000,000, the greater part in Ukraine and Slovakia. The majority of the diaspora-nearly 600,000-lives in the US. At the present, when it is fashionable to speak of nationalities as "imagined communities" created by intellectuals or elites who may live in the historic homeland, Carpatho-Rusyns provide an ideal example of a people made-or some would say still being made-before our very eyes. The book traces the evolution of Carpathian Rus' from earliest prehistoric times to the present, and the complex manner in which a distinct Carpatho-Rusyn people, since the mid-nineteenth century, came into being, disappeared, and then re-appeared in the wake of the revolutions of 1989 and the collapse of communist rule in central and eastern Europe. To help guide the reader further there are 34 detailed maps plus an annotated discussion of relevant books, chapters, and journal articles.

Book description


Kishwar Rizvi, drawing on the multifaceted history of the Middle East, offers a richly illustrated analysis of the role of transnational mosques in the construction of contemporary Muslim identity. As Rizvi explains, transnational mosques are structures built through the support of both government sponsorship, whether in the home country or abroad, and diverse transnational networks. By concentrating on mosques--especially those built at the turn of the twenty-first century--as the epitome of Islamic architecture, Rizvi elucidates their significance as sites for both the validation of religious praxis and the construction of national and religious ideologis,

Rizvi delineates the transnational religious, political, economic, and architectural networks supporting mosques in Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates, as well as in countries within their spheres of influence, such as Pakistan, Syria, and Turkmenistan. She discerns how the buildings feature architectural designs that traverse geographic and temporal distances, gesturing to far-flung places and times for inspiration. Digging deeper, however, Rizvi reveals significant diversity among the mosques--whether in a Wahabi-Sunni kingdom, a Shi&8219;i theocratic government, or a republic balancing secularism and moderate Islam--that repudiates representations of Islam as a monolith. Mosques reveal alliances and contests for influence among multinational corporations, nations, and communities of belief, Rizvi shows, and her work demonstrates how the built environment is a critical resource for understanding culture and politics in the contemporary Middle East and the Islamic world.

Book description


Roller coasters are the pulse of any great amusement park. While waiting in line, you have a front-row seat to the heart-pounding adventure you are about to experience. The thunderous rumble of the coaster as it navigates the steel highway of twisting turns, loops, and drop-offs that are borderline illegal has your undivided attention. In minutes you will be one of those passengers who is offering screams of joy or pure terror, debating whether you're brave enough to raise the roof as the ride approaches a cliff to weightlessness. The adrenaline bolting through your body causes held breath as you plummet at an impossible angle while approaching speeds of 150 m.p.h. At least one time the thought of There's no way this thing is staying on the tracks taunts your mind as you're rocketed skyward. Then it's over. While the emotions of relief and excitement are ping-ponging around inside, you have a decision to make-go again or find the funnel cake stand. That's how our mornings feel with the Boy, our four-year-old son. Except when the clock strikes noon, we don't have the option of finding a food stand. We must get right back in line and prepare for the perpetual roller coaster that defines our days. He is the keeper of our hearts, the provider of nonstop entertainment, and the raiser of our blood pressures. His big brown eyes, thick locks of hair, and adorable yet devilish smile are befitting of a Gerber jar and will have you concluding "This child is an absolute angel." Suckers. Underneath his angelic exterior is a TNT canister waiting to detonate the moment anyone or anything interferes with what he deems fun or as "MINE!" When the day is over and the ride has stopped, we say prayers, kiss him good night, and thank the heavens for such a beautiful gift. And then pour a drink.

Lord Grott is without doubt the stingiest, meanest, most uncharitable, tight-fisted Lord in the whole of England. He spends all his time trying to save money.

But in another stroke of genius comes an even better solution ... yet it is one that that causes strange things to happen at Grott Hall.
Little does Lord Grott know that for all his meanness, there is an equally kind force working against him. And with a bit of luck and a cunning plan, happiness will win.
Join author Steve Matthews in this hysterical tale of mischief, talking animals, and mayhem. Reminiscent of the best aspects of Wind in the Willows, Matthews' book features a likeable cast of characters who will make you giggle and cheer on to victory. Bath time will never be the same.

Every time we go to the bridge table we have high expectations. We have read learned books, studied hard, practised and searched for the perfect partner who doesn't mess up but still we are successful too little of the time. Let's face it; for the average bridge player there are highs and lows, ups and downs, joy and despair. Fortunately the human condition allows us to continue to return to the table refreshed with new hope despite any disappointments that have come before.
However, along the way there are always stories that are funny, tragic or at least worth re-telling.
In this collection Dennis Zines relates what happened on a number of deals that piqued his interest. No doubt you will recognise similar circumstances and outcomes and hopefully will enjoy the journey.
This is not an educational book but potentially one where you can pick it up at any time for a slight bridge diversion from whatever else that you were doing that you really didn't want to do.

Alfred Zampa didn't know what he was getting into when he took a construction job in 1925 on the Carquinez Bridge, one of the first to cross San Francisco Bay. Despite the risk, Zampa relished the challenge and embarked on an illustrious career that made him a local legend. His impressive feats of iron craft are evident in numerous spans, including the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate, as well as others across the country. He was one of the first to survive a fall from the Golden Gate Bridge, making him a founding member of the Halfway to Hell Club in 1936. The Alfred Zampa Memorial Bridge, named to honor the man after his death, replaced the first bridge he had worked on nearly eighty years earlier. This remarkable story of skill, grit and enduring spirit is told through oral histories collected by John Robinson and Isabelle Maynard.

Book description


Following 9/11, Americans' fears of terrorists-especially domestically based Islamic extremists-reached near-hysteria levels. The government and media reports stoked fears that malign actors living in the US had not only the desire but the means to wreak extreme havoc and destruction. Early reports estimated slightly more than 300 al Qaeda operatives living in the United States, and it wasn't long before this number became 2,000 or 5,000 domestic terrorists. As these estimates snowballed, so did spending on federal counterterrorism organizations and measures, and it now totals over one trillion dollars. The federal government launched more covert operations in the name of fighting terrorist adversaries than they did in the entirety of the forty-five year Cold War. For each apprehension of a credible terrorist suspect, the US government created or re-organized two counterterrorism organizations. The scale of these efforts has been enormous, yet somehow Americans remain fearful of what they perceive to be a massive terrorist threat. But how well-founded is this fear? Is the threat of terrorism in the United States as vast as it seems and are counterterrorism efforts effective and appropriately-scaled?

In Chasing Ghosts,two of our leading critics of the mushrooming national security state show that it has not, statistically speaking, been efficient or successful-to say the least. Only one alarm in 10,000 has proven to be a legitimate threat-the rest are what John Mueller and Mark Stewart refer to as "ghosts." These ghosts are enormous drains on resources and contribute to a countrywide paranoia that has resulted in widespread support for (and minimal critical questioning of) massive expenditures and infringements on civil liberties, including regular invasions of privacy and legally questionable imprisonments. Mueller and Stewart contend that the "ghost chase" occupying that occupies American law enforcement and fuels federal spending persists because the public has been lead to believe that the terrorism threat is significant.

As they show, it is not a significant threat-certainly not large enough to justify the vast security state apparatus that has emerged to combat it. The chance that an American will be killed by a terrorist domestically in any given year is about one in four million (under present conditions). Yet despite this statistically low risk and the extraordinary amount of resources put towards combatting threats, Americans still worry and the government still spends billions. Until the true threat of domestic terrorism is understood, the country cannot begin to confront whether our pursuit of ghosts is worth the cost

Book description


A crucial responsibility for Christian interpreters of Scripture today, Richard Bauckham insists, is to seek to understand our contemporary context and to explore the Bible’s relevance to it in ways that reflect serious critical engagement with that context. In The Bible in the Contemporary World Bauckham models how this task can be carried out.

Bauckham calls for our reading of Scripture to lead us into increased engagement with the important issues of today’s world, including globalization, environmental degradation, and widespread poverty. He works to bring biblical texts into relationship with these contemporary realities by means of the Bible’s metanarrative of God and the world, in which God’s purpose takes effect in the salvation and fulfillment of the world as his cherished creation.

Book description


Upon the release of the 100 of the World's Tallest Buildings, the first 100 of the world's tallest buildings will be more than 985 feet (300 meters) for the first time. This book will showcase many of the new tall builds across Asia and the Middle East, in particular.

Compiled by the CTBUH (Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat), with insightful introductory essays on key trends in the skyscraper typology (a preview of the future) and by renowned tall buildings expert, Georges Binder, on the history of the world's tallest buildings by decade, this ambitious and comprehensive text provides in-depth descriptions of the buildings' design and significance, accompanied by stunning images, detailed drawings, and plans. Towering structures are oftentimes the subject of admiration only for their sheer height or skyline silhouette, and oftentimes criticized for their poor environmental performance (and not without justification). This book aims to change that impression by showing innovations that are particular to this group of tall buildings, in addition to generally good architectural design and engineering prowess.

The CTBUH's Awards series draws from the multi-disciplinary expertise of the practitioners directly involved in bringing these buildings to life. This guide is intended for anyone working on the design and operation of tall buildings at both the building and urban scales.

Book description


Though the tensions with North Korea are well known, less widely understood is how far the critical issues facing the two modern Korean states are rooted in the deadly conflict of 1950–1953. Allan R Millett demonstrates how today’s geopolitical problems must be seen in the context of the battlefields of Korea. As one of the world’s foremost authorities on the Korean War, he argues that the fighting stemmed from two key historic events: the communist revolution in China, and the successful reform of postwar Japan. Korea became a strategic frontier between two great Asian rivals: a rivalry that endures. He examines the actual outbreak of hostilities, when the intervention of the USSR and the USA transformed, almost by accident, a localized civil war into an international conflagration. He explores the near-defeat by the North’s forces of the South Korean and American armies fighting under UN command. He describes the UN’s counteroffensive at Inchon and the breakout from the ‘Pusan Perimeter’. Describing the bitter land campaigns and the fiercely-contested war in the air between MiG-15s and F-86 Sabres, this vibrant introduction will attract students of history, military history and international relations.

Understanding a country's history is a vital way of understanding its people. In Unequal Treaties and China, author Wang Jianlang looks at how history has affected the nation and how those unequal treaties from foreign powers have shaped China's policies even up until the modern day.
From the first Opium War (1839-1842) and until the birth of New China in 1949, China was forced to sign multiple unequal treaties by foreign imperialist and invading powers. In these treaties, China conceded many of its sovereign rights in terms of territory and commerce. Ever since the time of the first unequal treaty (the Treaty of Nanjing), the people of China have struggled to invalidate these unequal treaties. Unequal Treaties and China provides a comprehensive overview of China' s history of fighting against these unequal treaties.

FLYING 7 CONTINENTS SOLO is the fascinating account of a pilot flying alone around the world in a small single-engine plane, across oceans and through foreign countries, to achieve the rare goal of landing on all seven continents. This book will be of direct interest to pilots, of course, but also to those interested in international travel from an entirely different perspective - the cockpit of a small plane. From enduring the angst of possibly running out of fuel over the ocean to navigating laughably mindless aviation bureaucracies to reckless nights on a beach in Santorini or in a Bangla Road bar, this is a personal story that will intrigue anyone drawn to unique travel adventures. It is also a very accessible narrative about flying, a subject which is still mysterious and foreboding to many, made more so by airliners that disappear, flights that are inexplicably delayed, and insane pilots who deliberately crash their planes.

Edward Adair, heir to the Duke of Boulstridge, is more interested in finding a missing family heirloom than a wife. But when his parents issue an ultimatum – marry or lose your allowance – he reluctantly agrees to attend a house party to find a bride. Instead, he discovers attractive but infuriating Miss Isabella Winthrop in his library, reading the private family journal that holds clues to the location of the heirloom.

Though Isabella finds Edward haughty and arrogant, she offers to take him to the next clue mentioned in the journal if he will pay her, which will enable her to help her brother restore his estate. Edward counters with an offer of an even larger payment…if she agrees to masquerade as his betrothed to deter the other ladies until the house party ends.

As they work together to solve the mystery their mutual attraction grows, but just when they begin to think they should make their engagement real, a secret is revealed that could destroy everything.

For nearly two centuries, Baton Rouge remained a sleepy little river town. Situated on the first bluffs of the Mississippi River north of the Gulf of Mexico, it was prime real estate for habitation. Images of America: Forgotten Baton Rouge collects a plethora of lost images of this citys greatest period of expansion: from the 1890s to the 1930s. This era began when Louisiana State University moved to the grounds of the old US Army arsenal, followed by a corporate decision from John D. Rockefeller to build a Standard Oil Company refinery at Baton Rouge. These historic decisions, coupled with the forward-thinking actions of bold businessmen and politicians like Robert A. Hart and Huey P. Long, changed the face of the city forever.

Book description


The sixteen essays in Robert Alexander Innes and Kim Anderson’s Indigenous Men and Masculinities: Legacies, Identities, Regeneration explore the complex and diverse experiences of Indigenous men and those who assert Indigenous masculine identities. Editors Kim Anderson and Robert Alexander Innes show that expressions of contemporary Indigenous masculinity have been influenced by the racial and gender biases rooted in colonial policies and structures that have disrupted traditional roles and distanced Indigenous men from their families and communities––whether through disempowering traditional forms of governance, residential schools, incarceration, or other means of dislocation.

This collection of diverse academic and community voices from Canada, New Zealand, and the United States tackles a wide range of issues facing Indigenous men to arrive at multiple meanings of Indigenous masculinity. Taken together, these essays challenge the imposed stereotypical notions of Indigenous masculinity that, once internalized, act to subjugate Indigenous women, children, and Elders, and further reinforce the colonial structures that oppress Indigenous people. The essays illustrate the ways that some Indigenous men are caught up in this cycle of dysfunction, violence, and living up to or even defending false stereotypes, but also how others are building on cultural foundations that point toward the decolonization and healthy expression of Indigenous masculine identities

Book description


Waterford, home to two rivers and three canals, conjures up images of and involvement in water by its very name. The native population enjoyed the bounty of the waters for subsidy and transportation. Europeans arrived by boat, seeking a passageway to the West, and their journey ended in Waterford. Early settlers realized the ability to ford the rivers and found the soil bountiful from frequent overflow. As land was farmed and developed, rivers were dammed for transport and harnessed for power, and canals were channeled. Water was being utilized but never truly controlled, as the floods of many seasons have demonstrated. The water in this area is a gift, but it can at times create great devastation. Waterfordians, from the pre-Columbian era to the present day, have learned to respect the power of the rivers.
