Greek Mythology: Tales of Greek Myth, Gods, Goddesses, Mythical Beasts & the Beliefs of Ancient Greece.

by Adrian Myron

A juggernaut in the literary world at the apex of history, culture, politics, and art, the Greeks altered almost every facet of Western ideology and stand alone as a legend in the realm of human history. No other culture can boast such a profound importance on the rest of the known world and the Greeks have the mythology to back it up. Out of their curiosity about the world around them, their pursuits of science and knowledge, conquest, and avarice, the rich tradition of their gods and goddesses reach out to us from across the creative divide and tell a tall tale of what the Greeks cherished, revered, feared, and believed. â?¨

Now the wealth of this glorious empire’s mythology is at your fingertips, filled with the triumphs and tragedies of these larger-than-life characters. From the fiery creation of the universe and to the petty jealousies of its lowliest, smallest players, the spectrum of Greek mythology is yours to explore. Discover the great conflicts that plagued both the lords of the skies as well as the leagues of men who battled against their gods and spun forth these incredible tales. Prepare to do battle with the kind of creatures known only to nightmares that the Greeks introduced into popular culture and beyond. Experience the love, loss, history, infidelity, triumph, and tradition of the these ancient heroes and villains that continue to inspire the masses even thousands of years after their demise.

What’s Inside?â?¦

  • The Epochs of Greek Mythology
  • The Original Gods and “Creation”
  • The Gods At Work and Play
  • Gods and Mortals â?? Stolen Fire
  • The Great Conflicts, Part I â?? The Trojan War
  • The Great Conflicts, Part II
  • Creatures, Monsters, and Other Strange Beings
  • Other Stories in Greek Mythology
  • And Much, Much More!

Understanding DSLR Lenses: An Illustrated Guidebook (Finely Focused Photography Books 3)

by Al Judge

This is the third book of the Finely Focused Photography Books Series by Al Judge.

Finely Focused Photography Books is a new series of books from Al Judge for people who prefer to study photography one topic at a time.

Each Book of the Series draws upon Al’s longer and more comprehensive books for content. Like all of Al Judge’s books these books contain numerous photos and illustrations to help facilitate clear and concise communication.

Understanding DSLR Lenses will painlessly provide help and insight into the often confusing and intimidating world of DSLR Camera Lenses. The ability to change lenses is one of the greatest strengths of the DSLR camera but Lens Selection requires some insight. If you get serious about photography, you will spend much more money on Lenses than Cameras. The good news is that Lenses retain their value over decades and can often be used on with each new camera release. Some Lenses designed for film cameras can still be used on their digital counterparts. A wise Lens purchase will dramatically improve the quality of your images.

Digital Cameras don’t have to be intimidating. The underlying principles are surprisingly simple but rarely presented in layman’s terms. Like any other area of specialization, photography has its own language. Fortunately, you only need to understand a few of terms and concepts to get started.

This guide to PHOTOGRAPHY BASICS builds a solid foundation of photographic knowledge with easy-to-follow discussions of everything that you need to know in order to get started with confidence. Every photographic term used in the book is clearly defined and thoroughly explained. All terms are also highlighted by using BOLD CAPS so that you can easily find them again to refresh your memory.

This Photographic Guide will take the mystery out of digital cameras, camera choices, and Photographic Jargon.

This book is filled with charts, illustrations and photos that take the discussion to new levels. You will not only understand the terminology and techniques discussed, but you will have a much better understanding of how your camera works and what is actually happening when you make adjustments. The charts and photos should help you to retain what you learn and put it to good use immediately.

Although this book provides a fast-track approach to achieving photographic competence it does not rely on previous knowledge.

This book will:

  • Save you a great deal of time and effort.
  • Help you take better pictures and know why they are better.
  • Present the details and language of digital photography without intimidation or confusing terminology – all terms are clearly defined and explained.
  • You may also be interested in Al’s other books.

by Kelli McCracken

He lied to protect her. She left to forget him. Neither expected the past to change their future.

Jonah McCabe has no time for love. As one of L. A.’s hottest record producers, his long days and short nights keep his schedule full and his bed empty. When his current project leads him home to Savannah, a last-minute favor forces him to face his past. He never expected to run into Ally. He sure as hell didn’t plan to win her back.

Ally Jacobs worked her ass off to get her new promotion. She had no clue it would require her to return to Savannah, the place she was desperate to leave six years ago. Time away hasn’t helped her forget Jonah. Though she claims she’s over him, a girls night out brings them face to face. Ally vows to keep Jonah at a safe distance, but his southern charm draws her back into his world.

When Ally feels her resistance faltering, she must decide if Jonah is worth getting her heart broken again. He isn’t making it easy. Jonah refuses to back down until Ally knows the truth, but it could be the one thing that breaks her.

Only in Time is the prequel to the Touched by Magic Series. If you like contemporary romances packed full of love, loss, and second chances, then you’ll enjoy Kelli McCracken’s heartwarming look at the sacrifices made for love.

Advancing Equity Planning Now

What can planners do to restore equity to their craft? Drawing upon the perspectives of a diverse group of planning experts, Advancing Equity Planning Now places the concepts of fairness and equal access squarely in the center of planning research and practice. Editors Norman Krumholz and Kathryn Wertheim Hexter provide essential resources for city leaders and planners, as well as for students and others, interested in shaping the built environment for a more just world.

Advancing Equity Planning Now remind us that equity has always been an integral consideration in the planning profession. The historic roots of that ethical commitment go back more than a century. Yet a trend of growing inequality in America, as well as other recent socio-economic changes that divide the wealthiest from the middle and working classes, challenge the notion that a rising economic tide lifts all boats. When planning becomes mere place-making for elites, urban and regional planners need to return to the fundamentals of their profession. Although they have not always done so, planners are well-positioned to advocate for greater equity in public policies that address the multiple objectives of urban planning including housing, transportation, economic development, and the removal of noxious land uses in neighborhoods.

No Quiero Tu Perfección (Sombras de la Luna nº 2) (Spanish Edition)

by Sebastián Baudracco

Un viaje comienza con el primer paso. Los protagonistas comienzan esa odisea que cambiará sus vidas para siempre: o los volverá aburridos e incoloros, o los elevará a estratos impensados. La vida es una seguidilla de desencuentros e infortunios que se mezclan quí­micamente con alegrí­as y causalidades, porque si es para bien, le llamaremos casualidad, y si no, una simple y maldita mala suerte. El amor por lo desconocido se confunde con la ceguera de los caminantes que vacilan en un mundo en el cual sólo tenemos pistas del futuro, sólo tenemos atisbos de lo que vendrá, y sin embargo, afrontamos con actitud altanera y despiadada: nada más absurdo.

365 Surprising and Inspirational Rock Star Quotes

by Alison Taylor

We mean it when we say “surprising and inspirational!”

This was a bona fide labor of love over several years of picking and choosing not just a quote for every day of your year, but also short, quippy, sometimes stunning bios of over 200 of these guys and gals. Oh, and cool photos! (Especially the one of Ace Frehley, but hey, I’m biased!)

Good lead-in so far? But enough of my yakkin, there are a TON of cool quotes, bios, and photos for you inside! Read, dwell, read again! We hope you love it, we do!



Farewell to Mum

by Jean Harvey

Farewell to Mum

When Mama was diagnosed with COPD,

we thought everything was going to be okay,

and if you slowed everything down, it would work.
 
But the Breathless was getting worse.
She could not even

put on her shoes because it was so hard on her.
And then she spoke of dying ….



Die Wiedergänger – Ein Bericht aus dem 18. Jahrhundert: Dies ist die wahre Geschichte der Vampire (German Edition)

by Christian Baier

Serbien, Anfang des 18. Jahrhunderts. Nach dem Krieg gegen die Türken ist das Land verwüstet. Hunger und Krankheiten regieren an der schwach befestigten Militärgrenze gegen das osmanische Reich.

Gerüchte werden laut: In vielen Dörfern verlassen die Toten ihre Gräber und treiben unter den Lebenden ihr Unwesen. Nachzehrer werden sie genannt, Neuntöter, Moroi. Sie kehren zurück, so hei�t es, um sich zu holen, was ihnen im Leben verwehrt geblieben ist. Die Religion redet von der Auferstehung, die Wiedergänger leben sie.

An der Schwelle zur Aufklärung streiten sich in ganz Europa Wissenschaftler, Philosophen und Theologen über das Phänomen. Staat und Kirche greifen hart gegen die “Gemütsseuche” durch.

Dies ist die Geschichte von Micula und Amna, verdächtigt, Nachfahren eines Wiedergängers zu sein.
Dies ist die Geschichte des Mönchs Guido de Torrenti, der den Glauben an Gott verlor und das ewige Leben fand.
Dies ist die Geschichte des Kameralprovisors Heinrich Ignaz Frommenthal, der erfahren musste, was er nie erfahren wollte.
Dies ist die wahre Geschichte der Vampire.

BC Guitar

by Samuel Larson

Welcome to Beginning Contemporary Guitar,

As a teacher, I’ve observed that new students vary widely in age and past experience. Some students have played an instrument and have learned to read music but are new to the guitar. Others may have some experience with the guitar but no formal training in the language of music. And some students have never played a musical instrument.

No matter which background applies to you, if you’re taking this course, then you’ve decided to start from the beginning to develop a solid foundation with both the guitar and reading music.

The materials list for this course has three required elements:

1) You’ll need a six string acoustic or electric guitar,

2) A medium gauge guitar plectrum (guitar pick),

3) And a computer, laptop, or handheld electronic device.

This course is offered in digital format, and some of the course material includes interactive audio/visual media. In order to take full advantage of the interactive elements, be sure to use a device with audio/video capability.

Thank you for choosing this coursework for your lessons. After many years of watching new students develop into musicians, I strongly believe that a program which embraces the language of music is the best beginning for a lifetime of musical fulfillment.

Designing Worlds: National Design Histories in an Age of Globalization (Making Sense of History Book 24)

From consumer products to architecture to advertising to digital technology, design is an undeniably global phenomenon. Yet despite their professed transnational perspective, historical studies of design have all too often succumbed to a bias toward Western, industrialized nations. This diverse but rigorously curated collection recalibrates our understanding of design history, reassessing regional and national cultures while situating them within an international context. Here, contributors from five continents offer nuanced studies that range from South Africa to the Czech Republic, all the while sensitive to the complexities of local variation and the role of nation-states in identity construction.



Housing and Social Policy: Contemporary Themes and Critical Perspectives (Housing and Society Series)

This topical book transforms the analysis of housing problems into a lively, interesting and contentious subject of social scientific study, addressing themes of residential experience, inclusion/empowerment, sustainability and professionalism/managerialism, which lie at the heart of the housing and social policy debate. Each chapter considers a specific social category – such as class, gender, or disability – and evaluates the experience and understanding of housing and social policy under this category.


With innovative approaches to conceptualising housing and a clear, defined structure, Housing and Social Policy encourages students and practitioners in both arenas to think reflexively about housing as a central instrument of social policy and social experience.

The Witness as Object: Video Testimony in Memorial Museums (Museums and Collections Book 10)

by Steffi de Jong

In recent years, historical witnessing has emerged as a category of “museum object.” Audiovisual recordings of interviews with individuals remembering events of historical importance are now integral to the collections and research activities of museums. They have also become important components in narrative and exhibition design strategies. With a focus on Holocaust museums, this study scrutinizes for the first time the new global phenomenon of the “musealization” of the witness to history, exploring the processes, prerequisites, and consequences of the transformation of video testimonies into exhibits.



Reading Breath in Literature (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and Medicine)

by Arthur Rose

This open access book presents five different approaches to reading breath in literature, in response to texts from a range of historical, geographical and cultural environments. Breath, for all its ubiquity in literary texts, has received little attention as a transhistorical literary device. Drawing together scholars of Medieval Romance, Early Modern Drama, Fin de Siècle Aesthetics, American Poetics and the Postcolonial Novel, this book offers the first transhistorical study of breath in literature. At the same time, it shows how the study of breath in literature can contribute to recent developments in the Medical Humanities.

The Frightened Land: Land, Landscape and Politics in South Africa in the Twentieth Century

by Jennifer Beningfield

An investigation into the spatial politics of separation and division in South Africa, principally during the apartheid years, and the effects of these physical and conceptual barriers on the land. In contrast to the weight of literature focusing on post-apartheid South Africa, the focus of this book includes the spatial, political and cultural landscape practices of the apartheid government and also refers to contemporary work done in Australia, England and the US. It probes the uncertainty and ambiguity of identities and cultures in post-apartheid society in order to gain a deep understanding of the history that individuals and society now confront.


Drawing on a wealth of research materials including literature, maps, newspapers, monuments, architectural drawings, government legislation, tourist brochures, political writing and oral histories, this book is well illustrated throughout and is a unique commentary on the spatial politics of a time of enormous change.

Amsterdam. Lights & Shadows (Italian Edition)

by Alberto Pian

Una città e un tema: “Lights & Shadows”. Non solo un tema letterario ma anche simbolico, come si vedrà dalle immagini proposte. Un’immagine da sola non esprime una narrazione, ma diverse immagini accostate fra loro si, perché il “lettore” può immaginare un filo che le leghi. Non è detto che questo filo sia lo stesso pensato dall’autore. Ma è giusto che sia così, perché i racconti possibili, partendo da immagini che possono esprimere un senso toccando il vissuto o l’immaginario del “lettore”, sono infiniti. Con questo tema l’autore propone quindi un “gioco” al “lettore”: giocare con la propria immaginazione, i propri ricordi reali di luoghi che potrebbe aver visitato (o abitato), le proprie aspettative. Questo “gioco” è possibile solo se la raccolta di immagini esprime una forza intrinseca. Ma la parola e il giudizio ora spettano solo a chi “leggerà” questo libro di fotografie.



King Henry V

by William Shakespeare

Henry V is a history play by William Shakespeare, believed to have been written near 1599. It tells the story of King Henry V of England, focusing on events immediately before and after the Battle of Agincourt (1415) during the Hundred Years’ War. In the First Quarto text, it was titled The Cronicle History of Henry the fift,[1]:p.6 which became The Life of Henry the Fifth in the First Folio text.
The play is the final part of a tetralogy, preceded by Richard II, Henry IV, Part 1, and Henry IV, Part 2. The original audiences would thus have already been familiar with the title character, who was depicted in the Henry IV plays as a wild, undisciplined young man. In Henry V, the young prince has matured. He embarks on an expedition to France and, his army badly outnumbered, defeats the French at Agincourt.



Xenakis: His Life in Music

by James Harley

Xenakis: His Life in Music is a full-length study of the influential contemporary composer Iannis Xenakis. Following the trajectory of Xenakis’s compositional development, James Harley, who studied with Xenakis, presents the works together with clear explanations of the technical and conceptual innovations that shaped them.



Harley examines the relationship between the composer and two early influences: Messiaen and Le Corbusier. Particular attention is paid to analyzing works which were vital to the composer’s creative development, from early, unpublished works to the breakthrough pieces Metastasis and Pithoprakta, through the oft-discussed decade of formalization and the evolving styles of the succeeding three decades.



Keep It Moving?: Conserving Kinetic Art (Symposium Proceedings)

Kinetic art not only includes movement but often depends on it to produce an intended effect and therefore fully realize its nature as art. It can take a multiplicity of forms and include a wide range of motion, from motorized and electrically driven movement to motion as the result of wind, light, or other sources of energy. Kinetic art emerged throughout the twentieth century and had its major developments in the 1950s and 1960s. 

 

Professionals responsible for conserving contemporary art are in the midst of rethinking the concept of authenticity and solving the dichotomy often felt between original materials and functionality of the work of art. The contrast is especially acute with kinetic art when a compromise between the two often seems impossible. Also to be considered are issues of technological obsolescence and the fact that an artist’s chosen technology often carries with it strong sociological and historical information and meanings.

Constructing Suburbs: Competing Voices in a Debate over Urban Growth (Cities & Regions (Paperback) Book 2)

Examining the debate between activists and professional planners over the vision of the future of a large growth corridor in Sydney, Australia, this case study maps the history of development from the late sixties to the mid-nineties, during which time serious environmental and financial problems arose. The book outlines five major visions of the future development and examines forms of political, economic, and institutional power applied by the parties in the project, with emphasis on the processes of infrastructure privatization and ecological impacts. The conclusion reflects on contemporary dilemmas about pluralism.



Musical Haptics (Springer Series on Touch and Haptic Systems)

by Stefano Papetti

This open access book offers an original interdisciplinary overview of the role of haptic feedback in musical interaction. Divided into two parts, part I examines the tactile aspects of music performance and perception, discussing how they affect user experience and performance in terms of usability, functionality and perceived quality of musical instruments. Part II presents engineering, computational, and design approaches and guidelines that have been applied to render and exploit haptic feedback in digital musical interfaces. Musical Haptics introduces an emerging field that brings together engineering, human-computer interaction, applied psychology, musical aesthetics, and music performance. The latter, defined as the complex system of sensory-motor interactions between musicians and their instruments, presents a well-defined framework in which to study basic psychophysical, perceptual, and biomechanical aspects of touch, all of which will inform the design of haptic musical interfaces. Tactile and proprioceptive cues enable embodied interaction and inform sophisticated control strategies that allow skilled musicians to achieve high performance and expressivity. The use of haptic feedback in digital musical interfaces is expected to enhance user experience and performance, improve accessibility for disabled persons, and provide an effective means for musical tuition and guidance.



Broken Voices: Postcolonial Entanglements and the Preservation of Koreaâ??s Central Folksong Traditions (Music and Performing Arts of Asia and the Pacific)

by Roald Maliangkay

Broken Voices is the first English-language book on Korea’s rich folksong heritage, and the first major study of the effects of Japanese colonialism on the intangible heritage of its former colony. Folksongs and other music traditions continue to be prominent in South Korea, which today is better known for its technological prowess and the Korean Wave of popular entertainment. In 2009, many Koreans reacted with dismay when China officially recognized the folksong Arirang, commonly regarded as the national folksong in North and South Korea, as part of its national intangible cultural heritage. They were vindicated when versions from both sides of the DMZ were included in UNESCO’s Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity a few years later. At least on a national level, folksongs thus carry significant political importance. But what are these Korean folksongs about, and who has passed them on over the years, and how? Broken Voices describes how the major repertoires were transmitted and performed in and around Seoul. It sheds light on the training and performance of professional entertainment groups and singers, including kisaeng, the entertainment girls often described as Korean geisha. Personal stories of noted singers describe how the colonial period, the media, the Korean War, and personal networks have affected work opportunities and the standardization of genres.

As the object of resentment (and competition) and a source of creative inspiration, the image of Japan has long affected the way in which Koreans interpret their own culture. Roald Maliangkay describes how an elaborate system of heritage management was first established in modern Korea and for what purposes. His analysis uncovers that folksong traditions have changed significantly since their official designation; one major change being gender representation and its effect on sound and performance. Ultimately, Broken Voices raises an important issue of cultural preservationâ??traditions that fail to attract practitioners and audiences are unsustainable, so compromises may be unwelcome, but imperative.



The Hegemony of Heritage: Ritual and the Record in Stone (South Asia Across the Disciplines)

by Deborah L. Stein

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.

The Hegemony of Heritage makes an original and significant contribution to our understanding of how the relationship of architectural objects and societies to the built environment changes over time. Studying two surviving medieval monuments in southern Rajasthanâ??the Ambika Temple in Jagat and the Ã?kalingji Temple Complex in Kailaspuriâ??the author looks beyond their divergent sectarian affiliations and patronage structures to underscore many aspects of common practice. This book offers new and extremely valuable insights into these important monuments, illuminating the entangled politics of antiquity and revealing whether a monument’s ritual record is affirmed as continuous and hence hoary or dismissed as discontinuous or reinvented through various strategies. The Hegemony of Heritage enriches theoretical constructs with ethnographic description and asks us to reexamine notions such as archive and text through the filter of sculpture and mantra.
