A Cultural History of the Modern Age
HK$ 373.00 HK$ 414.00
Kobo

Historian, philosopher, critic, playwright, journalist, and actor, Egon Friedell was a key figure in the extraordinary flowering of Viennese culture between the two world wars. His masterpiece, A Cultural History of the Modern Age, demonstrates the intellectual universality that Friedell saw as guarantor of the continuity and regeneration of European civilization. Following a brilliant opening essay on cultural history and why it should be studied, the first volume begins with an analysis of the transformation of the Medieval mind as it evolved from the Black Death to the Thirty Years War. The emphasis is on the spiritual and cultural vortex of civilization, but Friedell never forgets the European roots in pestilence, death, and superstition that animate a contrary drive toward reason, refinement, intellectual curiosity, and scientific knowledge. While these values reached their apogee during the Renaissance, Friedell shows that each cultural victory is precarious, and Europe was always in danger of slipping back into barbarism. Friedell's historical vision embraces the whole of Western culture and its development. It is a consistent probing for the divine in the world's course and is, therefore, theology; it is research into the basic forces of the human soul and is, therefore, psychology; it is the most illuminating presentation of the forms of state and society and, therefore, is politics; the most varied collection of all art-creations and is, therefore, aesthetics. Thomas Mann regarded Friedell as one of the great stylists in the German language. Like the works of the great novelist, A Cultural History of the Modern Age offers a dramatic history of the last six centuries, showing the driving forces of each age. The new introduction provides a fascinating biographical sketch of Friedell and his cultural milieu and analyzes his place in intellectual history.

Benjamin Franklin and The Quaker Murders
HK$ 45.00 HK$ 50.00
Kobo

Everyone in Philadelphia thinks Jacob Maul, the Quaker stonecutter, is a murderer. How could there be any doubt? In September of 1785, two women were found dead on his property-one of them in his bed-with bruise marks on their throats. The only person who comes to a different conclusion is the city's most famous citizen, Benjamin Franklin. But at seventy-nine years of age, Franklin doesn't want to acquire a reputation for solving his neighbors' problems. Instead, he recruits a younger man, Revolutionary War veteran James Jamison, to make inquiries under his direction and collect information that could prove the Quaker's innocence. Franklin's considerable intelligence guides Jamison, but as the investigation unfolds, details emerge that threaten to dismantle the great man's assumptions. The Quaker Murders contains rich details about both Benjamin Franklin and life in eighteenth-century Philadelphia, a large, bustling city that was still recovering from the rigors of the war for independence.

The God Upgrade
HK$ 116.00 HK$ 145.00
Kobo

For people who don't believe that God can intervene in our lives, and why Judaism is still important."Judaism has so much to teach us about how we treat ourselves, each other, and our planet…. Of course, you can learn these values elsewhere. But as a people, Jews have thousands of years of experience turning this kind of stuff over and over. [We've] had millions of users working to debug the system. Rather than look to other sources for guidance, let us turn to our own people's past to discover what it has to say about our present and our future."-from the IntroductionFor some people, the biggest stumbling block in religion is God-even for an ordained rabbi who admits her rational mind "can't buy into a God in the sky who writes down our deeds and rewards and punishes us accordingly." But not being sold on an intervening God shouldn't bar you from living a vibrant and fulfilling Jewish life. The God concept has seen many upgrades over the centuries and it is these reinterpretations that have kept Judaism relevant. In this provocative look at the ways in which God concepts have evolved and been upgraded through the centuries, Adventure Rabbi Jamie Korngold examines how our changing ideas of God have shaped every aspect of Judaism. With enthusiasm and humor, she shows that by aligning our understanding of God with modern sensibilities, Judaism can be made more meaningful, accessible and fully compatible with twenty-first-century life.

Union Soldier of the American Civil War
HK$ 73.00 HK$ 90.00
Kobo

This book provides a glimpse at the lives, weapons, and equipment of these soldiers through a collection of artifacts and exacting reproductions. As 1862 dawned, the Civil War, the conflict that had started the year before and that most Americans thought would last only a few months, showed no signs of ending. Hundreds of thousands of men across the divided nation enlisted in state volunteer regiments that poured into the sprawling military camps around Washington, DC, Richmond, Virginia, and other strategic locations. Within a year, thousands of these courageous men had lost their lives on bloody battlefields or died in disease-ridden encampments. This book provides a glimpse at the lives, weapons, and equipment of these soldiers through a collection of artifacts and exacting reproductions. While other books examine the War Between the States from a political, tactical, or military perspective, these books focus on the day-to-day life and the human experience of the men themselves, the Union and Confederate soldiers who enlisted and often fought to the death for their beliefs and those of their home regions of the young United States. Illustrated with full-color photography and historical documents, engagingly written and thoroughly explained, these books are the perfect addition to children's and adults' library collections, school libraries, and personal libraries of interested readers and history lovers of all ages.

The Harlot Demon Unveiled
HK$ 88.00 HK$ 110.00

The Harlot Demon Unveiled is a stunning revelation of the harlot spirit, a principality of the forces of darkness; revealed as the death angel, the spirit of the great whore of Revelation 17,18, & 19 I believe I have been divinely chosen in this last hour to manifest and declare the name of the Sovereign Yahweh and his son Yahshua. To declare that Yahweh rules in all heaven and earth; that He still relates to mankind and whosoever will seek him with all their heart, He will reveal to them the mysteries of the gospel (an abundance of truth). To reveal the hidden force and agenda of Satan the enemy of or souls, and the evil spirits that are influencing our loved ones to murder, commit suicide, and all types of hateful crimes against each other. The word of Yahweh warns us not to be ignorant of Satan's devices "lest he get an advantage over us." (see, II Corinthians 2:11) Yahweh declares that His people are destroyed for the lack of knowledge. (see, Hosea 4:6) (Proverbs 7:24-27) Harken unto Me now therefore o ye children and attend to the words of my mouth. Let not thine heart decline to her ways, go not astray on her paths. For she has cast down many wounded; Yea, many strong men have been slain by her. (The harlot demon) Her house is the way to hell, going down to the chambers of death. My earnest desire is that through the revelation of the Holy Scripture and the disclosure of some if my personal experiences the reader will be transformed by the wealth of knowledge and truth. Yahweh sent his word and healed them and delivered them from all their destructions. (see. Psalms 107:20)

Triângulo das Águas
HK$ 62.00
Kobo

Triângulo das águas, publicado originalmente em 1983 e há anos fora de catálogo, é um dos melhores livros de Caio Fernando Abreu (1948-1996). Reconhecido com o Prêmio Jabuti - a naior honraria literária brasileira, Triângulo é também um título exemplar do ponto de vista do estilo do autor: nas linhas das novelas que o compõem - Dodecaedro, O marinheiro e Pela noite - encontram-se cristalizadas algumas constantes na obra de Caio. A alma perdida em busca de alguma coisa (às vezes afeto), a verborragia e as referências que, longe de afetadas, exalam sinceridadee aproximam os leitores, a vida sob o signo da madrugada, as boas-vindas aos mistérios da existência, concretizados, neste livro, pela presença da astrologia (inclusive no título), e o tom confessional-desesperado. Triângulo das águas foi escrito não em São Paulo, onde o escritor gaúcho passou muitos anos da sua maturidade, mas no Rio de Janeiro, em isolamento no bairro de Santa Teresa, depois do sucesso de Morangos mofados, de 1982. Ao leitor destas novelas (ou noturnos, como o autor as chamou) não restará dúvidas quanto às razões por que Caio Fernando Abreu é considerado um dos escritores mais criativos e inovadores surgidos no Brasil nas últimas três décadas do século 20.

Über Teleportation gelingt ihnen der erste Kontakt mit einem Erdbewohner. Doch bald befindet sich das photonenbetriebene Raumschiff mit den vier Erdbewohnern in allerhöchster Gefahr. In dem spannenden Buch wird auch Bezug genommen auf die Science-Fiction-Erzählungen 'Der Untergang der Astronautic', 'Asteroidenjäger' und 'Die Umkehr der Meridian'. Leseprobe: Die 'Trans-Sol 1', das erste interstellare Raumschiff der Erde mit Photonenantrieb, raste mit vier Kosmonauten an Bord durch das Weltall. Heute war laut Schiffszeit der vierte Jahrestag des Antritts der Reise und zugleich auch der Tag, an dem die Grenze des Ziels, des Planetensystems der Sonne Epsilon im Sternbild 'Fluss des Eridanus', zwölf Lichtjahre von der Erde entfernt, erreicht wurde. Der Auftrag der Erde lautete, das benachbarte Planetensystem in weitem Bogen zu umrunden und in groben Zügen zu erkunden. Von einer Landung war ausdrücklich abgeraten worden, da das System vermutlich von verstandbegabten Lebewesen bewohnt war. Jedenfalls gab eine auBersolare Sendung, die von dem Raumschiff 'Astronautic' vor rund drei Jahrzehnten aus diesem Bereich des Kosmos aufgefangen worden war, Anlass zu einer solchen Vermutung.

Fearless Spirituality: What Sages Knew and Science Discovered
HK$ 70.00
Kobo

You've probably asked yourself one of life's most frustrating questions: "If God is love, why do we live in a world of fear and suffering?" Did you come up with a satisfying answer? Many have given up, deciding the dichotomy proves that God cannot exist. But this is a question that deserves a meaningful answer, one that must go far beyond, "just believe." Sages who have experienced the Divine directly (gnosis) discovered the answer. As a result, they lived a life of spiritual fearlessness. Does that sound impossible? If so, than why bother with a spiritual quest? Why not stick with what the world has to offer? But you were not meant to seek continually, but to find. You were not meant to keep wondering, you were meant to understand. You were not meant to feel disconnected from the Divine, but to enjoy a direct, personal relationship. You were not meant to live in fear, but to rest in complete peace and security that can only result from experiencing truth first hand. Jesus was not the only sage who promised, "You will know the truth and the truth will set you free." Although many religious teachings have been unable to stand up to scientific scrutiny, you'll find that the words of the fearless sages we'll be examining are strengthened by it. This liberating information was not meant for a special few, so what keeps most of us from recognizing the simple truths that can free us from fear? Let the words of sages and scientists hand you the keys you need to unlock the door to fearless spirituality.

Hot Wheels The Year of Less
HK$ 104.00 HK$ 129.00
Kobo

In her late twenties, Cait Flanders found herself stuck in the consumerism cycle that grips so many of us: earn more, buy more, want more, rinse, repeat. Even after she worked her way out of nearly 30,000 of consumer debt, her old habits took hold again. When she realized that nothing she was doing or buying was making her happy-only keeping her from meeting her goals-she decided to set herself a challenge: she would not shop for an entire year. The Year of Less documents Cait's life for twelve months during which she bought only consumables: groceries, toiletries, gas for her car. Along the way, she challenged herself to consume less of many other things besides shopping. She decluttered her apartment and got rid of 70 percent of her belongings; learned how to fix things rather than throw them away; researched the zero waste movement; and completed a television ban. At every stage, she learned that the less she consumed, the more fulfilled she felt. The challenge became a lifeline when, in the course of the year, Cait found herself in situations that turned her life upside down. In the face of hardship, she realized why she had always turned to shopping, alcohol, and food-and what it had cost her. Unable to reach for any of her usual vices, she changed habits she'd spent years perfecting and discovered what truly mattered to her. Blending Cait's compelling story with inspiring insight and practical guidance, The Year of Less will leave you questioning what you're holding on to in your own life-and, quite possibly, lead you to find your own path of less.

A Guide to Bone Marrow Transplantation
HK$ 985.00 HK$ 1,094.00
Kobo

In 1988 we presented our Guide to Bone Marrow Transplan- tation. The reception has been enthusiastic and we have re- ceived a flood of critical comments, suggestions and requests to provide an update in due time. Although several books on marrow transplantation have recently been published, their scope and goal have generally been different. Hence, we have decided to prepare a second edition of the Guide. Our aim was to maintain a short, concise text which never- theless would incorporate changes that have occurred over the past four or five years. We have streamlined the description of pretransplant considerations, by condensing two sections into one (Treatment Planning and Timing of Transplantation). This also facilitated the review of controversial indications for marrow transplantation, for example in patients with acute myelogenous leukemia in first chemotherapy-induced remission. We have updated the chapter dealing with conditioning regimens and have expanded the section on donor selection, in particular in regard to the current level of tissue typing and the identification of unrelated volunteer donors. In the chapter on collection, processing, and infusion of marrow, we have incorporated recent developments, for example, the use of closed systems for marrow harvesting and processing and the use of solid phase separation of stem cells.

Makin Sense With Music is a tried and tested program (Book and/or CD) that is the result of successfully teaching the understanding and appreciation of the beauty and wonder of music to people of all ages and walks of life. In it Professor Procopio has unlocked the language of music and made it as understandable as one's own language. As a lifetime composer, musician and music teacher Joe Procopio has re-mastered and released his guide to understanding the language of music that he developed for over 30 years and taught as an educator to thousands of successful students worldwide. This method is now available in the iTunes music store, CD Baby, etc. as the CD or Book entitled Making Sense With Music. Now, for the first time, the average person as well as the trained musician can not only listen but also understand all kinds of music easily. With Making Sense With Music, you need not be a musician or even be able to read music in order to master the language of music. This unique method teaches the listener to become fluent in the language of music by turning musical ideas into words and sentences that anyone can make sense of. With Making Sense With Music, Procopio demonstrates how small groups of notes are used by composers to convey meaning in music. Each of six devices is clearly explained with musical examples and completed works of music. For example, one composition depicts an argument between a woman and a man using one saxophone for the woman's voice and another saxophone for the man's. Making Sense With Music is now available in a completely digital format and delivery, allowing a new generation of music lovers around the world to download new meaning into their music.

Composition, Chromaticism and the Developmental Process
HK$ 446.00 HK$ 495.00
Kobo

Musicology, having been transmitted as a compilation of disparate events and disciplines, has long necessitated a 'magic bullet', a 'unified field theory' so to speak, that can interpret the steady metamorphosis of Western art music from late medieval modality to twentieth-century atonality within a single theoretical construct. Without that magic bullet, discussions of this kind are increasingly complicated and, to make matters worse, the validity of any transformational models and ideas of the natural evolution of styles is questioned and even frowned upon today as epitomizing a grotesque teleological bigotry. Going against current thinking, Henry Burnett and Roy Nitzberg claim that the teleological approach to observing stylistic change is still valid when considered from the purely compositional perspective. The authors challenge the traditional understanding of development, and advance a new theory of eleven-pitch tonality as it relates to the corpus of Western composition. The book plots the evolution of tonality and its bearing on style and the compositional process itself. The theory is not based on the diatonic aspect of the various tonal systems exploited by composers; rather, the theory is chromatically based - the chromatically inflected octave being the source not only of a highly ingenious developmental dialectic, but also encompassing the moment-to-moment progression of the musical narrative itself. Even the most profound teachings of Schenker, and the often startlingly original and worthwhile speculations of Riemann, Tovey, Dahlhaus and others, still provide no theory of development and so are ultimately unable to unite the various tendrils of the compositional organism into a unified whole. Burnett and Nitzberg move beyond existing theory and analysis to base their theory from the standpoint of chromatic 'pitch fields'. These fields are the specific chromatic pitch choices that a composer uses to inform and design a complete composition, utilizing

Agroforestry for Natural Resource Management
HK$ 451.00 HK$ 563.00

In its early days, agroforestry may have been viewed as the domain of the 'landcare enthusiast'. Today, integrating trees and shrubs into productive farming systems is seen as a core principle of sustainable agriculture. Agroforestry for Natural Resource Management provides the foundation for an understanding of agroforestry practice in both high and low rainfall zones across Australia. Three major areas are discussed: environmental functions of trees in the landscape (ecosystem mimicry, hydrology, protection of crops, animals and soil, biodiversity, aesthetics); productive functions of trees (timber, firewood, pulp, fodder, integrated multi-products); and the implementation of agroforestry (design, evaluation, establishment, adoption, policy support). The book also includes a DVD that features videos on forest measurement and harvesting, a Farm Forestry Toolbox and many regionally specific agroforestry resources. Written by leading researchers and practitioners from around Australia, Agroforestry for Natural Resource Management will be an essential resource for students in agroforestry courses, as well as a valuable introduction to the field for professionals in related areas.

The critical essays of V.s. Pritchett are unparalleled for their wit, geniality, subtlety and profound good sense. His survey of writers ranges from Fielding and Smollett to Conrad, D.h. Lawrence, Nathanael West and William Golding. from Balzac to Dostoevsky and Gorky, with wonderful detours for minor figures. Pritchett's commentaries are short and incisive and are written from the point of view of the engaged reader rather than from the specialized approach of the scholar and formal analyst of literary structure. Not since Virginia Woolf's Common Reader and Edmund Wilson's Shores of Light has there been a collection of critical writings so marked by swiftness of thoughts, lucidity of expression and balance, and sanity of judgement. The result is a revitalizing study of the novel, by a discerning and distinguished writer whose special gift is to reveal new aspects of the greater novels and the lesser.

HK$ 32.00
Kobo

A teenage author has conquered the literary frontiers of Russia, and now he's coming to America. Mikhail Samarsky's hot-selling book, "A Rainbow for a Friend," explores the wilds of a great city-and beyond-from a unique perspective. In this story the hero isn't a soldier, but he's brave and steady. He isn't a detective, but he's endlessly inquisitive. He isn't a saint, but he has the ability to accept and transcend human failings. The hero, you see, isn't human. He's Trisong, a guide dog for the blind. To Trisong. or "Trisha," as his young fosterling Sasha calls him. the mission is to lead a newly blind boy through the ins and outs of daily life in Moscow. That sounds easy enough for a highly trained Labrador retriever. Ah, but things change with a kidnapping, a "vacation" with well-meaning but uninformed strangers, a jailing by the police, run-ins with troublemakers and street dogs, and even a rescue of his own. Through it all, two things keep Trisong steadily on the path forward: the curiously hilarious wisdom of old Ivan, his previous fosterling; and young Sasha's wish for a sign of hope in this world. Can Trisong make it through the craziness of his human environment and bring Sasha what he wants most? "A Rainbow for a Friend" will have you laughing, crying, thinking and shouting victory. It's a story for everyone who believes life is inherently good, despite its twists and turns. Read Mikhail Samarsky's "A Rainbow for a Friend," and see the world through new eyes.

Overcoming Fear

"Yes, this is all self-hypnosis. It works regardless of whether you believe in it at once or over time."If a person was brought up in difficult circumstances, faced pressure from parents and the others felt his/her uselessness and lack of love, felt the injustice, experienced everything in negative aspects, the suffering and negative experiences become the norm for such person. That is, worrying here is a usual thing. The person feels "good" when he feels "wrong," and this is not because he feels good actually - just because it is habitual. He's used to it; he knows what to do, how to conduct. This is his comfort zone.I won't convince you that there is nothing to fear, it would be a mistake! But I know for sure that there is one kind of fear that distinguishes man from the other creatures - a fear of hurting or threatening the life of another person. It is the fear, which needs no correction, we don't have a right to get rid of it! All other concerns prevent us from enjoying our lives entirely. I'll try to help you overcome the most common fears if you want it. But you need to reconsider your life and pick your worries, something you're afraid of, exactly. When you find this out, consider that your path of defeating negativity that settled in your subconsciousness became shorter by 50%!Let's consider the most critical areas of human life, where the sense of fear doesn't allow changing anything.

*"I absolutely loved this beautiful book! It's wise, wry, bracingly honest and so gripping I couldn't put it down. Clearly whip smart, Margaux Bergen has one of those rare voices that pulls you in and makes you want to keep reading."- Amy Chua, author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother An inspiring, piercingly honest user's guide to life, written for the author's daughter and given to her on her first day of college, reflecting tough lessons about family, work, and marriage* You learn a few useful things at school-the three Rs come in handy, and it's good to know how to perform under pressure and wait your turn-but most of what matters, what makes you into a functioning human being, able to hold your own in conversation, find your path, know what to avoid in relationships and secure a meaningful job, no teacher will ever tell you. This diamond-sharp, gut-punchingly honest book of hard-earned wisdom is one mother's effort to equip her daughter for survival in the real world. Margaux Bergen began writing this book when her daughter Charlotte turned nine and gave it to her right after graduation from high school, when she was setting off for her first day of college. "I am not writing this to groom or guide you to professional or academic success," she writes. "My goal is rather to give you tools that might help you engage with the world and flourish. . Think of this as a kind of developing bath-time wisdom." Wise, heartbreakingly funny, and resonantly true, Navigating Life has invaluable lessons for students of life of all ages. It will challenge you to lead a more meaningful life and to tackle the bumps along the way with grace, grit, style, and ingenuity. What The Blessings of a Skinned Knee did for the early years of parenting, Navigating Life does for the next, far more perilous chapter, when new graduates are cast out on the high seas and have to learn to swim and find their way by themselves.

Was von uns bleibt: Christliche Hoffnung angesichts des Todes
HK$ 137.00 HK$ 144.00
Kobo

Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Theologie - Praktische Theologie, Note: keine, , Veranstaltung: Evangelische Theologie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Dieses Buch stellt die Frage nach der Möglichkeit einer belastbaren Hoffnung, in der menschliches Leben sich angesichts seiner Endlichkeit, Brüchigkeit und Fragmentarität geborgen und aufgehoben finden kann, auch und gerade an seinen Grenzen. Der Autor versucht im Rahmen einer transtheistischen Rekonstruktion auch dieses Kernstücks christlicher Glaubenslehre eine Antwort auf die Frage, 'was' vom christlichen Osterglauben 'bleibt', wenn man ihn nicht mehr 'buchstäblich' supranaturalistisch verstehen kann, aber dennoch den starken Trost und die unendliche Lebensbejahung, die er über die Jahrhunderte vermittelt hat, und auch heute noch vermitteln kann, auch nachtheistisch bekräftigen möchte. Ein heute plausibles Neuverständnis der Osterhoffnung muss dabei, so der Autor, auch den Erkenntnissen der modernen Neurobiologie und Hirnforschung Rechnung tragen, nach denen 'Geist' und 'Seele' keine platonisch-cartesianischen 'Substanzen' sind, sondern aus den menschlichen Gehirnfunktionen emergente Prozesse, die nach dem Tod des Gehirns nicht selbstständig weiterbestehen (oder irgendwie unabhängig von ihm 'neu geschaffen' werden) können. Zur inhaltlichen Entfaltung seiner Rekonstruktion einer nachtheistischen Lehre vom 'Ewigen Leben' rezipiert der Autor auBer älteren Impulsen von von Karl Barth, Eberhard Jüngel und Dorothee Sölle v.a. die aktuellen, aus seiner Sicht weiterführenden Beiträge von Mark Johnston, Hans-Peter Dürr, Raimon Panikkar und Karl Peters, und entwickelt auf dieser Grundlage eine 'theopoetische' Deutung des Auferstehungsglaubens und der österlichenen 'Hoffnungsbilder' der Bibel als metaphorisch-poetischer Einkleidungen des Gedankens einer Einbettung menschlichen Lebens in eine umfassenden Gesamtwirklichkeit, und als einer damit verbundenen Sinn- und Wertaussage über das menschliche Leben über den Tod hin

Arie di sorbetto

Due sono i modi di fare musica: suonare e fare poesia. Fare poesia è cercare di far musica con le parole; e, come quando si improvvisa su tema dato - o su standard per parlare la lingua del jazz - la rima della tradizione è come un tema musicale che, pur prestandosi alla variazione per l'orecchio, vuole confermare il tema più antico della poesia, il tema d'amore. Amore, nella sua articolazione astratta, cerca di farsi strada nella poesia, nella musica e nell'espressione artistica in generale; pretesto, quindi, per ribadire l'amore per la poesia e la sua tradizione, per la musica e ogni sua piega di libertà di improvvisazione e variazione, e amore per alcuni poeti in particolare. Quest'ultimo amore, quello per i poeti, è forse l'unico amore che può scaldare di sentimento il versante astratto dello scrivere poesia, e procurare l'illusione che un verso non rimanga del tutto senza destinatario, ma sia l'urgenza di una comunicazione che avrebbe dovuto compiersi in altro tempo. E solo il tempo musicale, come ricordava Cioran, può "imbalsamare un sospiro".

This book contains contributions by scholars working on diverse aspects of speech who bring their findings to bear on the practical issue of how to treat stuttering in different language groups and in multilingual speakers. The book considers classic issues in speech production research, as well as whether regions of the brain that are affected in people who stutter relate to areas used intensively in fluent bilingual speech. It then reviews how formal language properties and differential use of parts of language affect stuttering in English, and then compares these findings to work on stuttering in a variety of languages. Finally, the book addresses methodological issues to do with studies on bilingualism and stuttering; and discusses which approach is appropriate in the treatment of bilingual and multilingual people who stutter.

How To Read a Film
HK$ 109.00 HK$ 136.00
Kobo

Monaco's book was an instant classic when it first came out, and with new sections in its anniversary edition, is more essential than ever. A landmark in media studies, it is unique in its sophisticated understanding of both the art and technology of film. Molly Haskell, criticWhen it was first published in 1977, HOW TO Read A Film established itself as a genuine classic in film studies and has been considered by many to be the source on film and media. Monaco's original book looked at film from many vantage points, exploring the medium as both art and craft, sensibility and science, tradition and technology. It examined film's close relation to other narrative media such as the novel, painting, photography, television, and even music. Monaco discussed those elements necessary to understand how films convey meaning and, more importantly, how we can best discern all that a film is attempting to communicate. Now, in this new, fourth edition, James Monaco brings his work fully up to date and into the twenty-first century as he explores the new and still-evolving digital context of film, multimedia, virtual reality, cyberspace, and how they all relate to film. This completely revised and expanded edition also features a new preface, several new sections, nearly five hundred illustrative film stills, and more than sixty diagrams. New sections in HOW TO Read A Film include: Digital Tipping Points: why digital is untrustworthy; how technology has radically changed the art; and what filmmakers and viewers can do to preserve quality and the truth of the image. Movies in the Oughts: Beyond Cinema: Metafiction, Metareality, and the growth of the virtual world; Gross-out humor and Post-modern narrative. The Mediasphere: How recent profound changes in the architecture of communications have changed the way we live and consume media. How to restore the balance between the virtual world of art and the real, natural world. The Virtual World: describes our contemporary cul

The Lost Journals of William Tanner
HK$ 27.00
Kobo

Meet Will Tanner - Nineteenth Century adventurer, sex addict, murderer. And probably the greatest scientific genius ever lost to history. In his recently-discovered journals, Tanner reveals how he beat Mendel, Darwin and Einstein to the secrets of genetics, evolution and relativity. But Tanner never has time to develop and publish his theories: he's too much on the lam, pursued by jealous husbands and pistol-wielding deceived lovers. As he puts it himself: "You don't discuss sexual ethics with an armed lover after she's discovered you've been bedding her maid on the side. I suppose there's a lesson in that somewhere." The armed lover in this case is Lady Ada Byron, later Countess Lovelace, daughter of the poet Lord Byron and collaborator with Charles Babbage in programming Babbage's Analytic Engine, the world's first computer. At least, that's the accepted story. Will Tanner has a different take - the computer was his invention. And Babbage stole it. We first meet William Tanner as a motherless adolescent known as Jack Riordan, who has grown up in a Manchester brothel, run by his aunt, Judy Riordan. Judy tells Jack about the death of his mother (her sister), but refuses to reveal the identity of his father. Jack's life changes radically when he survives the Peterloo Massacre of 1819 by murdering a policeman. To escape capture, he allows himself to be adopted by Mary Tanner, a dotty middle-aged heiress who believes him to be her dead son, William, and who indulges "William" in developing his scientific theories. But events do not go smoothly for Will Tanner. True, his experience of playing cards with Mary Tanner inspires his discovery of Mendelian genetics. And he is able to sample the attractions of the brothel. But his invention of the electric telegraph causes a riot at the brothel. Other events lead to the mysterious disappearance of Judy Riordan and to a life or death struggle with Mary's estranged husband, Ralph Tanner, on the muddy banks of a canal. Will decam

The Seventh Victim
HK$ 90.00

In the past, there have been a series of attacks on white and Asian women in a local neighborhood, and the police was under pressure to solve the cases. Tyrone Briggs was charged with aggravated assault in the crimes. Tyrone Briggs was a nineteen-year-old high school basketball star who, at the time of the crimes, was living in the Yesler Terrace. Since the attacks had all happened in the same area, during the same early morning hours, they were considered the work of a serial attacker. Because of the close proximity of the attacks to the hospital, they became known jointly as the Harborview rape case. Harborview Medical Center was next to a public housing project the Yesler Terrace, run by the city. Tyrone Briggs had lived in Yesler Terrace with his parents, brothers, and sister for about a dozen years and was living there at the time of the attacks. Hundreds of young black men lived there, and the police were picking up those between the ages of fourteen and thirty for questioning. A police stakeout was conducted in the neighborhood to try to catch the assailant during this time. The general description given by the witnesses (most of whom were the victims of the assaults) at the time of the attacks described a man who did not fit the descriptions of Tyrone Briggs, and the police officers had no reason to detain him. When the trial began, the prosecutor seemed adamant that Tyrone Briggs was the attacker of those women. The frustrating injustice of the whole case made the Briggs family's blood boil. Joanne Spencer couldn't imagine how it felt to be Tyrone Briggs, star high school basketball player now locked up in prison for something he didn't do.

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.
