Vikings, Norse Mythology and Nordic Metal Music: Strong Heathen Fists from The North (Omega Viking Series Book 5)

by Omega Viking Series

Viking metal is a dynamic and popular subgenre of metal music of burgeoning popularity coming primarily from Nordic countries. These musicians use their nations’ Viking histories and saga material as inspiration for their lyrics and nostalgic reimagining’s of the past are used to make commentaries on modern society and hopes for the future. Viking metal bands use the Middle Ages and the Viking Age as a screen upon which to play with nostalgic imaginings of what life was like then or at least how it should have been based upon aspects of the collective memory of their communities which can include the works of historians and that of artists and political figures. They use this as a means of criticizing the modern Christian world they perceive as being weaker than the ancient one.The three main components of Viking metal are:
-The idealization of a national past from which an ethnic identity can be constructed on a national, Scandinavian, or pan-Nordic level.
-A staunch opposition to Christianity that is based on the perceived oppression of their ancestors in the Viking Age for which they lust for vengeance. This vengeance is described as taking place in a grand Ragnarok-inspired battle between the pagan forces and the Christian.
-The romanticization of the natural primordial world and its â??dark forces’. The legacy with is contained within the ethnic blood of the people and tied to the land.

A Little Bit of Arizona: Volume 35

by Paul Moore

This is a photography book; it does not explain or attempt to teach you about photography, in Arizona or anywhere else. One of the greatest pleasures about photography is experimenting to see if the image you capture resembles the image you had in your mind when you took it.
This book is small; it is intended to be small. It is an attempt to bring the cost of photography books down to as low as they can go without sacrificing digital quality of the images within. This is the thirty fifth volume in a series, length or number unknown at the moment. However, when the series becomes sufficiently voluminous, they will be combined into a larger, and unfortunately more expensive, volume.
This volume contains about 40 images. Future volumes may contain a few more or a few less depending upon final digital size. I sincerely hope you enjoy the images within.

Disclosing Horizons: Architecture, Perspective and Redemptive Space

by Nicholas Temple

This study examines the influence of perspective on architecture, highlighting how critical historical changes in the representation and perception of space continue to inform the way architects design.

Since its earliest developments, perspective was conceived as an exemplary form of representation that served as an ideal model of how everyday existence could be measured and ultimately judged. Temple argues that underlying the symbolic and epistemological meanings of perspective there prevails a deeply embedded redemptive view of the world that is deemed perfectible.

Temple explores this idea through a genealogical investigation of the cultural and philosophical contexts of perspective throughout history, highlighting how these developments influenced architectural thought. This broad historical enquiry is accompanied by a series of case-studies of modern or contemporary buildings, each demonstrating a particular affinity with the accompanying historical model of perspective.

Acupuntura en la Ciudad (Spanish Edition)

by Isaac García Venegas (coordinador)

En este libro se analiza la situación actual de las Fábricas de Artes y Oficios de la Ciudad de México. Estas fábricas constituyen una de las políticas culturales más exitosas en nuestro país. La primera de ellas abrió sus puertas hace 18 años en el Oriente de la Ciudad de México. Posteriormente se inauguraron cuatro más que se articularon en la Red de Faros de la Ciudad de México. Al publicarse este libro, dos más están construcción. Esta expansión se debe a su éxito pero también implica hacer un corte de caja para dar cuenta de sus alcances y limitaciones, pero sobre todo para intentar aprehender el modelo de atención e intervención cultural que en ellas opera con diferentes matices. Este libro no es un manual; ante todo es un ejercicio reflexivo cuyo objetivo central es contribuir a la consolidación y expansión de estas fábricas que además de descentralizar la cultura inciden directamente en la construcción de ciudadanías plenas, tan necesarias y fundamentales para la democracia mexicana.
