HK$ 102.00
HalloweenCostumes
Most everyone goes into the Halloween season or begins preparation for their costume party with three simple but important focuses in mind.Number one: you need something fast. We live busy lives. This is just a fact. It's okay that you didn't consider crafting a true-to-life Stormtrooper uniform out of materials in your house back in May. Number two: you have to look good (because hey, you look good!). And number three: you cannot look like everyone else. We all know what it's like to have the same shirt as some classmate in sixth grade. It's much worse when you have the same costume as your boss at the one party you get with coworkers per year.The good news? You can hit all of those targets with this black angel wings and halo set! It's the quickest costume we can imagine that doesn't look like your everyday attire. Better yet, since it's black and not heavenly white, you'll be subverting expectations all night long!

Parliamentary Elections, Representation and the Law
HK$ 350.00 HK$ 388.00
Kobo
Parliamentary elections are the foundation of the democratic State, providing legitimacy to government and an opportunity for citizens to participate in the democratic process. But despite the crucial role of elections in government and society, the law governing them is fragmented, both conceptually and in terms of the legal framework. This book examines each stage of the electoral process from the perspective of the candidate seeking to become an MP: eligibility and qualification, the candidate selection process, nominations, disputed elections and then, lastly, disqualification or exit from the House of Commons. Each stage of the process is considered in light of developments in political practice and human rights jurisprudence, and an argument is made for the rethinking and reform of the law of parliamentary candidacy and membership. The book takes into account the reforms ushered in by the parliamentary expenses scandal of 2009, and also looks to the new electoral era that may eventuate under the Liberal Democrat-Conservative Coalition Government.

Discover the true meaning of Feng Shui, the philosophical underpinnings of Hatha Yoga and Taoist connection to the martial art of Tai chi chuan.

The Eastern traditions, with their emphasis on harmony and oneness, have much to offer us in our hectic, demanding lives.

Transplanting Commercial Law Reform
HK$ 1,143.00 HK$ 1,270.00
Kobo
The first sustained analysis examining legal transplantation into East Asia, this volume examines the prospects for transplanting a 'rule of law' that will attract and sustain international trade and investment in this economically dynamic region. The book develops both a general model that explains how legal transplantation shapes legal development in the region, whilst developing theoretical insights into the political, economic and legal discourses guiding commercial law reforms in Vietnam. For the first time, this book develops a research methodology specifically designed to investigate law reform in developing East Asia. In so doing, it challenges the relevance of conventional convergence and divergence explanations for legal transplantation that have been developed in European and North American contexts. As the first finely-grained analysis of legal development in Vietnam, the book will be invaluable to academics and researchers working in this area. It will also be of interest to those involved in commercial legal theory.

Après avoir joint la compagnie que je trouvais rassemblée dans la bibliothèque de Cléanthe, Déméa fit quelques compliments à Cléanthe du soin qu'il prenait de mon éducation et de la constance inébranlable avec laquelle il persévérait dans ses amitiés. - Le père de Pamphile, dit-il, était votre intime ami: le fils est votre élève; on peut même le regarder comme votre fils adoptif, à n'en juger que par les peines que vous prenez pour l'instruire dans toutes les branches de la littérature et des sciences. Je ne doute pas que votre prudence n'égale vos talents. En conséquence, je vous ferai part d'une maxime que j'ai suivie dans l'éducation de mes enfants: je voudrais savoir à quel point elle peut cadrer avec ce que vous avez pratiqué. La méthode que j'observe pour leur éducation est fondée sur ces paroles d'un ancien: Pour acquérir la philosophie, il faut commencer par la dialectique, passer ensuite à la morale, puis à la physique et finir par la science qui nous instruit de la nature des Dieux. Cette dernière science étant, selon lui, la plus profonde et la plus abstraite de toutes, il fallait avoir le jugement le plus mûr pour l'étudier. On ne pouvait en confier les mystères qu'aux esprits déjà pourvus des trésors de toutes les autres sciences.

History of the Reformation in the Sixteenth Century (Complete)
HK$ 25.00
Kobo
D'Aubigné's History of the Reformation is so well known and so highly appreciated as to make it not only unnecessary, but almost presumptuous, for a mere Translator to say any thing in commendation of it. The public feeling unquestionably is, that of the works which have recently appeared, it is one of the most talented, interesting, important, and seasonable. The mere lapse of time, aided by the active misrepresentations of the Romish party, had begun to make an impression in some degree unfavourable to the principles of the Reformation. This admirable work has again placed these principles in their true light. By its vivid display of what Rome was and did, it has impressively reminded us of what she still is, and is prepared to do. Her great boast is, that she has never changed. If so, she longs to return to her former course, and will return to it the first moment that circumstances enable her to do so. Being thus warned, our duty is plain. We must prepare for the combat; and of all preparations, none promises to be more effectual than that of thoroughly embuing the public mind with the facts so graphically delineated, and the principles so luminously and forcibly expounded in this work of D'Aubigné. But, it may be asked, Has not this purpose been effected already, or at least may it not be effected without the instrumentality of a new translation? To this question the Translator answers, First, The form of the present translation and the price at which it is published place the work within the reach of thousands to whom it might otherwise be a sealed book. Second, While this Translation is the cheapest in existence, it is also the only one which can, in strict truth, be regarded as genuine. The edition from which this translation is made was published in 1842. The date would have been of little consequence if the work had continued the same; but the fact is, that the edition of 1842 is not a reprint, but a complete revision of the one which preceded it.

MEDUSA Traveling Blind: Life Lessons from Unlikely Teachers
HK$ 45.00
Kobo
I loaded up my huge pink ford with materials pillaged from the storeroom, borrowed a map of the county so I could find my scattered students, and set out to become a real teacher." In her remarkable memoir, Laura Fogg shares the unique life lessons she learned from the children she has worked with as a teacher of the visually impaired; lessons on patience, hope, doubt, loss, control, judgment and, ultimately, joy. With honesty and insight, Laura relates her experiences as an itinerant teacher in beautiful, rural Mendocino County. The abundant challenges and delights in her life's work are vividly portrayed with humor and tears and each child is seen for who he is-rather than for who he is not. Traveling Blind will bring you a deeper understanding of the struggles, perils and unexpected wonders of learning to negotiate this world without vision. Laura's students reveal that blindness is a difficult and inconvenient condition, but one that does not have to rob people of their humanity, their intelligence or their zest for living. Parents, teachers, caregivers, all who love a child with a visual impairment or multiple handicaps, as well as those who have never even thought about blindness, will find stories that resonate in Traveling Blind. "Her explicit memory of experiences while learning to be an Orientation and Mobility Specialist are completely accurate, down to the street names where she learned to travel under blindfold. As Laura goes into what she taught students, and they taught her, she is in her element as a magnificent writer." Dr. Phil Hatlen, Superintendent, Texas School for the Blind.

Marxism and Religion in Eastern Europe
HK$ 1,302.00 HK$ 1,446.00
Kobo
Since the Bolshevik revolution of 1917, two of the most significant but at the same time least understood areas of that revolution's cultural impact have been philosophy and religion. The impact has of course been massive, not only in the Soviet Union but, after the second World War, in Soviet- dominated Eastern Europe as well. Yet the consequences of Communism for philosophy and religion throughout the Soviet orbit are far from having the simplicity suggested by the stereotypes of a single, monolithic 'Marxism' and a consistent, crushing assault on the Church and on re- ligious faith. Unquestionably Marxism is the ruling philosophy throughout Eastern Europe. In the Soviet Union, 'Marxism-Leninism' or 'dialectical ma- terialism' is the official and the only tolerated philosophy, and most of the other countries of Eastern Europe follow the Soviet lead in philosophy as in other fields. But in the latter countries Marxism was imposed only after W orId War II, and its deVelopment has not always copied the Soviet model. Original thinkers in Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Hungary have thought their own way through the writings of Marx and his followers, and have arrived at Marxist positions which are consider- ably at variance with the Soviet interpretations - and often with each other. Moreover in recent years the Soviet philosophers themselves have been unable to ignore the theoretical questions raised by the other East of Marxism in the West.

Forgiveness in the Church and in the American Society
HK$ 91.00
Kobo
Forgiveness in the Church and American Society" is a book about forgiveness on an individual level and communal level. The first part of the book focuses on forgiveness in the body of Christ (the church), i.e. relationships among believers. Far too many Christians struggle with forgiveness and if we who are supposed to be the light to the world, can hardly get it together on forgiveness, then what is the hope for the world? We struggle with forgiveness within the church as much as outside the church. The second part of the book deals with forgiveness on a communal or society level, i.e. the condemnation of ex-prisoners, felons, and ex-convicts by the criminal justice system and the government. The lack of opportunities for these people make it a sort of modern day slavery and I believe that it is the responsibility of the government and the justice system to ensure that these people make a smooth transition back into society because these people are a product of their society. Their children and just like a parent never stops loving and providing the best opportunities for their children (good or bad) to succeed, the justice system needs to do the same because it will lead to a gradual drop in crime rates. I guarantee it!

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Cologne (Englisches Seminar), course: Hauptseminar: Concepts of Britishness in British Cinema, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The drama Oranges Are Not the Only Fruit tells the story of a young lesbian girl, Jeanette/Jess, who is raised in a repressive Pentecostal home by an overpowering mother. Jess tries to find her sexual identity in the context of the fanatical Pentecostal church. Although Jess herself does not have any problems with her sexuality combined with her religiosity at all, she gets into a conflict with the Christian community and into a deep inner conflict because the church regards her sexuality as a sin and herself as possessed by demons. This paper discusses how the different conflicts in the story arise and which impact the film's way of representing religion and lesbianism has on the viewer. It demonstrates how the ways in which the novel and the film version ofOrangespresent lesbianism work to naturalize and normalize it. By its representation of lesbian love and the church as its enemy Oranges challenges normative values and conventional standards. Oranges makes an attempt to reverse the viewer's former attitudes towards these opponents.

Energy and the English Industrial Revolution
HK$ 311.00 HK$ 365.00
Kobo
The industrial revolution transformed the productive power of societies. It did so by vastly increasing the individual productivity, thus delivering whole populations from poverty. In this new account by one of the world's acknowledged authorities the central issue is not simply how the revolution began but still more why it did not quickly end. The answer lay in the use of a new source of energy. Pre-industrial societies had access only to very limited energy supplies. As long as mechanical energy came principally from human or animal muscle and heat energy from wood, the maximum attainable level of productivity was bound to be low. Exploitation of a new source of energy in the form of coal provided an escape route from the constraints of an organic economy but also brought novel dangers. Since this happened first in England, its experience has a special fascination, though other countries rapidly followed suit.

Exploring Climate Change through Science and in Society
HK$ 431.00 HK$ 478.00
Kobo
Mike Hulme has been studying climate change for over thirty years and is today one of the most distinctive and recognisable voices speaking internationally about climate change in the academy, in public and in the media. The argument that he has made powerfully over the last few years is that climate change has to be understood as much as an idea situated in different cultural contexts as it is as a physical phenomenon to be studied through universal scientific practices. Climate change at its core embraces both science and society, both knowledge and culture. Hulme's numerous academic and popular writings have explored what this perspective means for the different ways climate change is studied, narrated, argued over and acted upon. Exploring Climate Change through Science and in Society gathers together for the first time a collection of his most popular, prominent and controversial articles, essays, speeches, interviews and reviews dating back to the late 1980s. The 50 or so short items are grouped together in seven themes - Science, Researching, Culture, Policy, Communicating, Controversy, Futures - and within each theme are arranged chronologically to reveal changing ideas, evidence and perspectives about climate change. Each themed section is preceded with a brief introduction, drawing out the main issues examined. Three substantive unpublished new essays have been specially written for the book, including one reflecting on the legacy of Climategate. Taken as a collection, these writings reveal the changes in scientific and public understandings of climate change since the late 1980s, as refracted through the mind and expression of one leading academic and public commentator. The collection shows the many different ways in which it is necessary to approach the idea of climate change to interpret and make sense of the divergent and discordant voices proclaiming it in the public sphere.

The essays collected here are stimulating for the very different ways in which they reconfigure the meanings of 'the law' as cultural practice, and 'the everyday' as a cultural domain in which the state expresses a range of interests and engagements. Readers looking for an introduction to this topic will come away from the book with a clear sense of the varied voices and modes of inquiry now involved in sociolegal studies, and what distinguishes them.

Dreaming and Historical Consciousness in Island Greece
HK$ 148.00 HK$ 185.00
Kobo
On publication in 2012, Dreaming and Historical Consciousness in Island Greece quickly met wide acclaim as a gripping work that, according to the Times Literary Supplement, "offers a wholly new way of thinking about dreams in their social contexts." It tells an extraordinary story of spiritual fervor, prophecy, and the ghosts of the distant past coming alive in the present. This new affordable paperback brings it to the wider audience that it deserves. Charles Stewart tells the story of the inhabitants of Kóronos, on the Greek island of Naxos, who, in the 1830s, began experiencing dreams in which the Virgin Mary instructed them to search for buried Christian icons nearby and build a church to house the ones they found. Miraculously, they dug and found several icons and human remains, and at night the ancient owners of them would speak to them in dreams. The inhabitants built the church and in the years since have experienced further waves of dreams and startling prophesies that shaped their understanding of the past and future and often put them at odds with state authorities. Today, Kóronos is the site of one of the largest annual pilgrimages in the Mediterranean. Telling this fascinating story, Stewart draws on his long-term fieldwork and original historical sources to explore dreaming as a mediator of historical change, while widening the understanding of historical consciousness and history itself.

Ethics and Suffering since the Holocaust
HK$ 406.00 HK$ 451.00
Kobo
For many, the Holocaust made thinking about ethics in traditional ways impossible. It called into question the predominance of speculative ontology in Western thought, and left many arguing that Western political, cultural and philosophical inattention to universal ethics were both a cause and an effect of European civilization's collapse in the twentieth century. Emmanuel Levinas, Elie Wiesel and Richard Rubenstein respond to this problem by insisting that ethics must be Western thought's first concern. Unlike previous thinkers, they locate humanity's source of universal ethical obligation in the temporal world of experience, where human suffering, rather than metaphysics, provides the ground for ethical engagement. All three thinkers contend that Judaism's key lesson is that our fellow human is our responsibility, and use Judaism to develop a contemporary ethics that could operate with or without God. Ethics and Suffering since the Holocaust explores selected works of Levinas, Wiesel, and Rubenstein for practical applications of their ethics, analyzing the role of suffering and examining the use each thinker makes of Jewish sources and the advantages and disadvantages of this use. Finally, it suggests how the work of Jewish thinkers living in the wake of the Holocaust can be of unique value to those interested in the problem of ethics in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Presenting a thorough investigation of the work of Levinas, Wiesel and Rubinstein, this book is of key interest to students and scholars of Jewish studies, as well as Jewish ethics and philosophy.

Intellectual Curiosity and the Scientific Revolution
HK$ 223.00 HK$ 262.00
Kobo
Seventeenth-century Europe witnessed an extraordinary flowering of discoveries and innovations. This study, beginning with the Dutch-invented telescope of 1608, casts Galileo's discoveries into a global framework. Although the telescope was soon transmitted to China, Mughal India, and the Ottoman Empire, those civilizations did not respond as Europeans did to the new instrument. In Europe, there was an extraordinary burst of innovations in microscopy, human anatomy, optics, pneumatics, electrical studies, and the science of mechanics. Nearly all of those aided the emergence of Newton's revolutionary grand synthesis, which unified terrestrial and celestial physics under the law of universal gravitation. That achievement had immense implications for all aspects of modern science, technology, and economic development. The economic implications are set out in the concluding epilogue. All these unique developments suggest why the West experienced a singular scientific and economic ascendancy of at least four centuries.

Handbook of Public Economics
HK$ 986.00 HK$ 1,095.00
Kobo
The Field of Public Economics has been changing rapidly in recent years, and the sixteen chapters contained in this Handbook survey many of the new developments. As a field, Public Economics is defined by its objectives rather than its techniques and much of what is new is the application of modern methods of economic theory and econometrics to problems that have been addressed by economists for over two hundred years. More generally, the discussion of public finance issues also involves elements of political science, finance and philosophy. These connections are evidence in several of the chapters that follow. Public Economics is the positive and normative study of government's effect on the economy. We attempt to explain why government behaves as it does, how its behavior influences the behavior of private firms and households, and what the welfare effects of such changes in behavior are. Following Musgrave (1959) one may imagine three purposes for government intervention in the economy: allocation, when market failure causes the private outcome to be Pareto inefficient, distribution, when the private market outcome leaves some individuals with unacceptably low shares in the fruits of the economy, and stabilization, when the private market outcome leaves some of the economy's resources underutilized. The recent trend in economic research has tended to emphasize the character of stabilization problems as problems of allocation in the labor market. The effects that government intervention can have on the allocation and distribution of an economy's resources are described in terms of efficiency and incidence effects. These are the primary measures used to evaluate the welfare effects of government policy.

Public Lands and Agrarian Laws of the Roman Republic
HK$ 30.00 HK$ 33.00
Kobo
In the following pages it has been my object to trace the history of the domain lands of Rome from the earliest times to the establishment of the Empire. The plan of the work has been to sketch the origin and growth of the idea of private property in land, the expansion of the ager publicus by the conquest of neighboring territories, and its absorption by means of sale, by gift to the people, and by the establishment of colonies, until wholly merged in private property. This necessarily involves a history of the agrarian laws, as land distributions were made and colonies established only in accordance with laws previously enacted. My reason for undertaking such a work as the present is found in the fact that agrarian movements have borne more or less upon every point in Roman constitutional history, and a proper knowledge of the former is necessary to a just interpretation of the latter. This whole question presents numerous obscurities before which it has been necessary more than once to hesitate; it offers, both in its entirety and in detail, difficulties which I have at least earnestly endeavored to lessen. These obscurities and difficulties, arising in part from insufficiency of historical evidence and in part from the conflicting statements of the old historians, have been recognized by all writers and call forth on my part no claim for indulgence. This monograph is intended as a chapter merely of a history of the public lands and agrarian laws of Rome, written for the purpose of a future comparison with the more recent agrarian movements in England and America.

The Different Types and Genres of Books in Hong Kong

Books are one of the most traditional and reliable sources of knowledge and intelligence. They are written by different authors, covering various aspects and genres. Reading books has a lot of benefits; one of which is becoming more productive with your time if you have nothing else to do. If you love to read books, you should know that there are different types, each of these has its sub-type or genre.

Two types of books

Books are generally categorized as fiction and non-fiction. Then, there are books that fall into these two main categories. For example, a fictional book that involves supernatural elements and thrilling aspects is a horror book. Although the fictional books are made up, some aspects of these books originate from real facts. They are elaborated in such a manner that a whole new story is created.

Meanwhile, non-fictional books discuss social themes, self-help tips, and much more. Biographies and travel books are the most common examples of a non-fictional book.

Book genres

As mentioned, there are many different genres or subcategories under fictional and non-fictional books. The most popular genres include history, travel, guide, poetry, horror, thriller, journals, drama, satire, prayer books, children, and much more. Among the most interesting genres are satires and anthologies.

Satires and Anthologies

Satires are books that make fun of something, far different from the humor genre. While anthologies are a collection of different works.

Children Books

There are also children books that are intended for children. They contain images, making it easy for them to read and understand. Often, these books provide lessons or values which are essential for their moral development. Some children books have little or no texts, yet they provide a lot of good stories to tell, fostering children’s thinking skills. Other kids’ books encourage participation which is important for active learning in schools.

Adult Books

If there are children books, there are also adult books, containing concepts which are not suitable for children. Generally, these books provide tips or suggestions for grown individuals regarding their life experiences.

Books for intelligence

This is a subcategory that is aimed at readers who want to enrich their wisdom and intelligence. These books can improve intelligence, regardless of age. They help enhance the overall mental capacity of readers, improving their way of life. Not only that, they are also a great source of good values. An example of a book for intelligence is serious fiction that talks about the truths expressed by many fictional books. Science books also fall into this subcategory since they enhance the knowledge and understanding of the reader of the natural world. Another example is poetry which deals with remarkable imageries that help in the development of the reader’s intelligence.

Apart from these, you can explore other genres of books that are available, and you are guaranteed that they can provide an equally great or better experience for you.
