Solzhenitsyn A. The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956. Vol. 3


The Gulag Archipelago remains as the one of the most historically impressive works; first circulated by hand, it would eventually cause Solzhenitsyn to flee the country, and emphasize "Human Rights" to the world at large. Categorized as "an experiment in literary investigation", The Gulag Archipelago is comprised of Solzhenitsyn's own memories, as well as those of other camp inmates, official records and interviewees. A memorial to those who died in the camps, this work shows the historical truth of the Gulag, as well as the mark it left on society. Volume 3, the final volume, is "an enthralling record of camp uprisings, of escapes, of defiance by individuals and groups of victims.In poignant closing chapters, [Solzhenitsyn] recalls his own resurrection from the house.

David Beaver I. Sense and Sensitivity


Sense and Sensitivity advances a novel research proposal in the nascent field of formal pragmatics, exploring in detail the semantics and pragmatics of focus in natural language discourse. The authors develop a new account of focus sensitivity, and show that what has hitherto been regarded as a uniform phenomenon in fact results from three different mechanisms. The book Makes a major contribution to ongoing research in the area of focus sensitivity – a field exploring interactions between sound and meaning, specifically the dependency some words have on the effects of focus, such as «she only LIKES me» (i.e. nothing deeper) compared to «she only likes ME» (i.e. nobody else) Discusses the features of the QFC theory (Quasi association, Free association, and Conventional association), a new account of focus implying a tripartite typology of focus-sensitive expressions Presents novel cross-linguistic data on focus and focus sensitivity that will be relevant across a range of linguistic sub-fields: semantics and pragmatics, syntax, and intonational phonology Concludes with a case study of exclusives (like “only”), arguing that the entire existing literature has missed crucial generalizations, and for the first time explaining the focus sensitivity of these expressions in terms of their meaning and discourse function

Marc Micozzi Celestial Healing


Historically, the influence of Chinese medical traditions, thought to be revealed from divine sources, extended East to Korea and Japan and as far South as Indochina, the Malay Peninsula and the Indonesian Archipelago. As the distinct medical traditions of these regions encountered the ancient medicine of mainland China, they absorbed and transformed them based on their own indigenous healing practices, and herbal and plant resources. Providing a panoramic overview of the medical traditions of China, the Malay Peninsula, the Indonesian Archipelago, the Philippines, Indochina (Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia), Korea, and Japan, Dr. Marc Micozzi offers compelling new insights into the influence of the essentially Chinese expression of vital energy (qi) in these traditions, as well as the pull of other cultural traditions, such as those of India and Islam. Dr. Micozzi discusses evidence for the efficacy of these healing practices and their many influences in the West, and explores how a Western reader might consider seeking a practitioner, as well as effective treatments, from one of these traditions. This groundbreaking book will be of interest to practitioners of Chinese and Asian medical traditions, and complementary and alternative health, as well as anyone with an interest in Chinese and Asian approaches to health and wellbeing.

Marilyn McEntyre Adverbs for Advent


These daily reflections for the season of Advent focus on the question of how we are to live into the promise of the season and the challenges of our historical moment, and how we might, as we focus again on the great theme of waiting in Christian life, practice the presence of God. They include pieces entitled, for instance, «Live Boldly,» «Live Patiently,» «Live Harmoniously,» and «Live Repentantly.» Based on the author's own efforts to accept the invitation of Advent each year as a time of interior renewal, these short essays are meant as invitations to reclaim a holy season and enjoy it as it was meant to be enjoyed–as «the crowning of the year.»

Conrad Joseph Lord Jim


First published in 1900, Lord Jim established Conrad as one of the great storytellers of the twentieth century. Set in the Malay Archipelago, the novel not only provides a gripping account of maritime adventure and romance, but also an exotic tale of the East. Its themes also challenge the conventions of nineteenth-century adventure fiction, confirming Conrad's place in literature as one of the first 'modernists' of English letters. Lord Jim explores the dilemmas of conscience, of moral isolation, of loyalty and betrayal confronting a sensitive individual whose romantic quest for an honourable ideal are tested to the limit. In this novel, Conrad draws on his background as Polish emigre, as well as his first-hand experience as a seaman, to experiment radically with the presentation of human frailty and doubt in the modern world. Introduction and Notes by Susan Jones, St Hilda's College, Oxford.

Dale Clark Focus on Murder


The diary read, “It is settled. I am going to kill him.” And with these words begins as unusual and spectacular a mystery as anyone could ask for. Johnny Kendall, a photographer whose job has been squeezed out in a merger, sets up shop in a small state capital as a commercial photographer. He lands the job of taking pictures of corpses for the sheriff's office, and that is how he manages to be in on the ground floor of the attempted ax murder of Dr. Harry Rigmire in his weekend fishing lodge. Kendall’s busy camera catches all the evidence both in the unsuccessful attempted murder and in the successful one which follows. Peopled with characters spicy and salty by turn, displaying real novelty in both plot and method of detection, Focus on Murder is equally interesting in human terms.

John T. Swann The Imago Dei


The creation of humankind in the Image of God is perhaps the most foundational tenet of theological anthropology, yet it is rarely understood in the fullness of what it represents. Too often, focus is placed on the divine image as a condition. A study of the Scriptures suggests that it is better understood not as a condition, but rather as a commission of humanity to a role, specifically a priestly role.
This book delves into the recognition that the Image of God is nothing less than a divine commission over all of humanity to serve as priests within the temple of creation. It examines not only the creation of humankind as a priesthood in the opening chapters of Genesis, but also the echoes of this anthropological interpretation throughout the Scriptures and the resulting ramifications for future biblical and theological studies.

Turning the attention to the temporal as well as the more familiar spatial dimensions of mobility, this volume focuses on the momentum for and temporal composition of mobility, the rate at which people enact or deploy their movements as well as the conditions under which these moves are being marshalled, represented and contested. This is an anthropological exploration of temporality as a form of action, a process of actively modulating or responding to how people are moving rather than the more usual focus in mobility studies on where they are heading.
