The Passion of Max Von Oppenheim - Lionel Gossman Preview:

Born into a prominent German Jewish banking family, Baron Max von Oppenheim (1860-1946) was a keen amateur archaeologist and ethnologist. His discovery and excavation of Tell Halaf in Syria marked an important contribution to knowledge of the ancient Middle East, while his massive study of the Bedouins is still consulted by scholars today. He was also an ardent German patriot, eager to support his country's pursuit of its "place in the sun." Excluded by his part-Jewish ancestry from the regular diplomatic service, Oppenheim earned a reputation as "the Kaiser's spy" because of his intriguing against the British in Cairo, as well as his plan, at the start of the First World War, to incite Muslims under British, French and Russian rule to a jihad against the colonial powers. After 1933, despite being half-Jewish according to the Nuremberg Laws, Oppenheim was not persecuted by the Nazis. In fact, he placed his knowledge of the Middle East and his connections with Muslim leaders at the service of the regime. Ranging widely over many fields - from war studies to archaeology and banking history - 'The Passion of Max von Oppenheim' tells the gripping and at times unsettling story of one part-Jewish man's passion for his country in the face of persistent and, in his later years, genocidal anti-Semitism..

Dust Bowls of Empire - Hannah Holleman Preview:

A profound reinterpretation of both the Dust Bowl on the U.S. southern plains and its relevance for today The 1930s witnessed a harrowing social and ecological disaster, defined by the severe nexus of drought, erosion, and economic depression that ravaged the U.S. southern plains. Known as the Dust Bowl, this crisis has become a major referent of the climate change era, and has long served as a warning of the dire consequences of unchecked environmental despoliation. Through innovative research and a fresh theoretical lens, Hannah Holleman reexamines the global socioecological and economic forces of settler colonialism and imperialism precipitating this disaster, explaining critical antecedents to the acceleration of ecological degradation in our time. Holleman draws lessons from this period that point a way forward for environmental politics as we confront the growing global crises of climate change, freshwater scarcity, extreme energy, and soil degradation..

Son salut viendra de l'abbé Faria, un autre prisonnier avec lequel il entretient une amitié clandestine des années durant. Celui-ci lui transmet sa vaste culture et à sa mort, un trésor caché... Extrait : « Je ne tirerai rien de ces niais-là, murmura-t-il, et j'ai grand-peur d'être ici entre un ivrogne et un poltron : voici un envieux qui se grise avec du vin, tandis qu'il devrait s'enivrer de fiel ; voici un grand imbécile à qui on vient de prendre sa maîtresse sous son nez et qui se contente de pleurer et de se plaindre comme un enfant.

Igwebuike Ontology: an African Philosophy of Humanity Towards the Other - Ejikemeuwa J. O. Ndubisi Ph.D,Jude I. Onebunne Ph.D,Paul T. Haaga Ph.D Preview:

This book of readings is designed to accomplish two tasks: to philosophize on Igwebuike and to honour Professor KANU, Ikechukwu Anthony, O.S.A. These two tasks or goals go hand in hand because Igwebuike is Professor Kanu’s philosophy. The book clearly demonstrates why Kanu deserves honour as an African philosopher who has introduced a way of doing African philosophy. It is an approach of doing philosophy that takes into account African ontology and cosmology. Igwebuike as a systematic African thought is exploratory in nature. It investigates issues with a view of seeing how they are related. Doing philosophy in this way takes into account not only the African context but the world as a complex entity with myriads of challenges. The myriads of challenges facing humanity have a representation in this book. For this reason the book is bound to have a global impact. In terms of philosophizing, this book demonstrates that Africa is confronted with many discourses. Discourses that are already going on but need a more systematic African philosophical approach. Some of the discourses are on the environment, governance, infrastructure, human and material resource among others. — Denis Odinga Okiya Maryknoll Insitute of African Studies, Nairobi, Kenya.

He has made an impact on world entertainment in a surprisingly diverse range of capacities – as actor, writer, producer, and director – all while maintaining a monolithic presence. With The Ultimate Stallone Reader, this icon finally receives concerted academic attention. Eleven original essays by internationally-known scholars examine Stallone's contributions to mainstream cinema, independent film, and television. This volume also offers innovative approaches to star, gender, and celebrity studies, performance analysis, genre criticism, industry and reception inquiry, and the question of what it means to be an auteur. Ultimately, The Ultimate Stallone Reader investigates the place that Sylvester Stallone occupies within an industry and a culture that have both undergone much evolution, and how his work has reflected and even driven these changes..

Philip Pirrip, dit Pip, jeune orphelin doux et rêveur, est élevé par un beau-frère bienveillant et une soeur acariâtre, soumis à l'autorité de cette dernière. L'enfant rêve le monde à travers le filtre de son imagination. Cette disposition à la fantasmagorie favorise sa rencontre avec les deux êtres qui vont changer sa vie : un forçat évadé, enrichi et condamné à mort, et Miss Havisham, une vieille folle pittoresque chez qui il apprendra toutes les bassesses de la nature humaine.À la suite d'un héritage inattendu, l'apprenti forgeron va connaître une adolescence fastueuse et dissipée à Londres. Pip et sa femme, Estella, seront mûris et châtiés par les épreuves. Mais les " grandes espérances " qui portent le jeune Pip ne sont pas tant les aspirations prosaïques de l'Angleterre victorienne, sa recherche du confort ou de la respectabilité, que les puissances du rêve qui font désirer le bonheur au-delà de la sagesse.Roman de l'enfance et de l'adolescence, histoire d'une éducation et d'une ascension sociale, Les Grandes Espérances, avant-dernière oeuvre achevée de Dickens, séduit par sa fraîcheur, son invention perpétuelle, son alternance de pathétique et d'humour cocasse..

Cessez de prier - Elbert Jucor Preview:

La question se pose. Est-ce que l’homme a réellement besoin d’adhérer à une quelconque religion pour se réaliser pleinement et vivre heureux? L'homme ne naît pas pécheur, c'est la religion qui a décrété ce fait et qui a fait germer, en lui, un vif sentiment de culpabilité, la crainte de l’enfer et la peur de l’après-vie. Il ne naît pas religieux non plus; il ne le devient que par endoctrinement, lequel est l'œuvre des sectes religieuses telles que l'Église catholique et autres organisations semblables. Si le dieu associé à chacune diffère, toutes partagent le même but : contrôler votre conscience et votre vie terrestre pour obtenir pouvoir et richesse. En plus de déresponsabiliser l'homme, les religions constituent le principal obstacle à l'intégration des peuples. Parmi les fléaux qu'elles ont provoqués, on note les guerres et les nombreux conflits dont nous sommes les témoins impuissants. Les religions engendrent la haine et la violence envers ceux qui ne partagent pas leurs croyances. La Bible et le Coran ne sont que des créations littéraires. Non seulement leurs récits n'ont aucune origine divine, mais rien, absolument rien, ne peut les légitimer. L'homme doit cesser de s'en remettre à un dieu, quel qu’il soit. Deux mille ans de prières n'ont rien apporté, surtout pas la paix et le bonheur. Alors, cessez de prier, chers amis, personne ne vous entend..

I Like to Watch - Emily Nussbaum Preview:

From The New Yorker’s fiercely original, Pulitzer Prize-winning culture critic, a provocative collection of new and previously published essays arguing that we are what we watch. “Emily Nussbaum is the perfect critic—smart, engaging, funny, generous, and insightful.”—David Grann, author of Killers of the Flower Moon NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • Chicago Tribune • Esquire • Library Journal • Kirkus Reviews From her creation of the “Approval Matrix” in New York magazine in 2004 to her Pulitzer Prize–winning columns for The New Yorker, Emily Nussbaum has argued for a new way of looking at TV. In this collection, including two never-before-published essays, Nussbaum writes about her passion for television, beginning with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the show that set her on a fresh intellectual path. She explores the rise of the female screw-up, how fans warp the shows they love, the messy power of sexual violence on TV, and the year that jokes helped elect a reality-television president. There are three big profiles of television showrunners—Kenya Barris, Jenji Kohan, and Ryan Murphy—as well as examinations of the legacies of Norman Lear and Joan Rivers. The book also includes a major new essay written during the year of #MeToo, wrestling with the question of what to do when the artist you love is a monster. More than a collection of reviews, the book makes a case for toppling the status anxiety that has long haunted the “idiot box,” even as it transformed. Through it all, Nussbaum recounts her fervent search, over fifteen years, for a new kind of criticism, one that resists the false hierarchy that elevates one kind of culture (violent, dramatic, gritty) over another (joyful, funny, stylized). I Like to Watch traces her own struggle to punch through stifling notions of “prestige television,” searching for a more expansive, more embracing vision of artistic ambition—one that acknowledges many types of beauty and complexity and opens to more varied voices. It’s a book that celebrates television as television, even as each year warps the definition of just what that might mean. FINALIST FOR THE PEN/DIAMONSTEIN-SPIELVOGEL AWARD FOR THE ART OF THE ESSAY “This collection, including some powerful new work, proves once and for all that there’s no better American critic of anything than Emily Nussbaum. But I Like to Watch turns out to be even greater than the sum of its brilliant parts—it’s the most incisive, intimate, entertaining, authoritative guide to the shows of this golden television age.”—Kurt Andersen, author of Fantasyland “Reading Emily Nussbaum makes us smarter not just about what we watch, but about how we live, what we love, and who we are. I Like to Watch is a joy.”—Rebecca Traister.
