Book Short Summary:

Столетняя война в самом разгаре. Английские гарнизоны стоят в Нормандии, Бретани и Аквитании; король шотландский, союзник французов, томится в лондонском Тауэре; Черный принц — Эдуард Уэльский — опустошает юг Франции, которая «похожа на крупного оленя, терзаемого охотничьими собаками». Чтобы сломить врагов окончательно, Эдуард затевает опустошительный набег через самое сердце Франции, оставляя за собой сожженные фермы, разрушенные мельницы, города в руинах и истребленный скот. Граф Нортгемптон приказывает своему вассалу по прозвищу Бастард присоединиться к войскам принца Эдуарда, но прежде отыскать сокровище темных владык — меч Малис. По утверждению черных монахов, это могущественная реликвия, обладание которой сулит победу в битве. А битва предстоит великая — в сентябре 1356 года превосходящие силы противника устраивают английской армии ловушку близ города Пуатье... Бастардом называет себя не кто иной, как Томас из Хуктона, герой романов «Арлекин», «Скиталец», «Еретик». «1356. Великая битва» продолжает эту блестящую трилогию, принадлежащую перу Бернарда Корнуэлла — непревзойденного мастера литературных реконструкций, возрождающих перед глазами читателей нравы и батальные сцены Средневековья.

Book Short Summary:

La Crònica del rei Pere el Cerimoniós és la quarta i última de les grans cròniques catalanes medievals. Raül Garrigasait n'ha adaptat al català modern el darrer capítol, en què el monarca narra la guerra contra el rei de Castella Pere el Cruel, un conflicte en què aflora la vella i novíssima qüestió de l'hegemonia peninsular. El Cerimoniós, després d'enumerar els diversos assassinats ordenats pel rei de Castella, que inclouen la seva tia i la seva mateixa esposa, transcriu la carta de desafiament del Cruel i l'intercanvi epistolar que se'n segueix. A continuació descriu les diverses etapes d'una guerra plena de traïcions i girs argumentals, destacant que el rei de Castella no confia en els seus mateixos homes i evita totes les batalles campals amb el Cerimoniós. El relat del rei Pere, dotat d'un punt de vista molt personal, ens fa reviure un episodi fonamental de la nostra història que ens ajuda a entendre el present.

Book Short Summary:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Jura - Rechtsphilosophie, Rechtssoziologie, Rechtsgeschichte, Note: 11 Punkte, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg (Institut für geschichtliche Rechtswissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Seminar, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die Goldene Bulle bildete bis 1806 die verfassungsrechtliche Grundlage des Heiligen Römischen Reiches deutscher Nation. In ihr wurden die Modalitäten der Königswahl sowie die Rechtsstellung der Kurfürsten erstmals und endgültig geregelt. Damit stellt die Goldene Bulle den Abschluss einer Entwicklung dar, die sich bis in das frühe 13. Jahrhundert nachweisen lässt. Die schriftliche Fixierung des damals anerkannten Kurfürstenkollegiums legt den Schluss nahe, der Dynamik des Entstehungsprozesses des Kollegiums wäre sonach ein Ende gesetzt. Dass dem nicht so war, zeigt die weitere Entwicklung. Zwar hatte die Regelung der Goldenen Bulle bis zum Ende des Reiches Bestand, doch kam es zu Veränderungen hinsichtlich der Zusammensetzung des Kollegiums. Die Arbeit befasst sich im Schwerpunkt mit den Erweiterungen des Kollegs, wie sie sich mit der Schaffung einer achten (wittelsbachischen) Kur als Folge des Dreißigjährigen Krieges sowie mit der Aufnahme des Braunschweigers Ernst August in das Kurkolleg (1692) vollzogen. Neben den quantitativen Veränderungen sollen jedoch auch personelle Veränderungen innerhalb der einzelnen Kurwürden, wie sie sich durch Dynastiewechsel ergaben, aufgezeigt werden. Die böhmische Kur soll im Hinblick auf ihren „Sonderweg“ etwas ausführlicher behandelt werden. Dabei soll die Geschichte der böhmischen Readmission (1708), also der Zulassung des böhmischen Kurfürsten zu allen Verhandlungen, bei der Behandlung der braunschweigischen Bemühungen um eine (neunte) Kur nähere Erläuterung finden, da die beiden Probleme untrennbar miteinander verbunden sind .

Book Short Summary:

1356 Thomas de Hookton, arquero inglés veterano de Crécy y otras batallas, es el líder de una compañía de mercenarios que saquea las tierras del sur de Francia. Eduardo, príncipe de Gales, que pasará a la Historia como el Príncipe Negro, está reuniendo un ejército para luchar contra los franceses una vez más. Pero antes de que Thomas y sus hombres puedan unirse, el conde de Northampton le ordena una misión urgente: encontrar la Malice antes de que lo hagan los franceses, una espada de poder mítico de la que se dice que conduce a la victoria a quien la posee, y que se halla en algún lugar cercano a Poitiers. Pero todos —el grupo de Thomas, sus enemigos y la Malice— serán engullidos por la extraordinaria confrontación que se prepara entre el poderoso ejército francés del rey Juan y el más reducido contingente inglés con sus temidos arqueros. «Las mejores escenas de batallas que he leído nunca. Cornwell hace que la Historia cobre vida». George RR Martin «Sus novelas han vendido más de siete millones de ejemplares en Reino Unido en los quince últimos años» «1356 ha vendido más de medio millón de copias solo entre Estados Unidos y Reino Unido hasta la fecha». «Cornwell vuelve a uno de sus escenarios predilectos: la Guerra de los Cien Años». CASACA ROJA Otoño de 1777. Un año después de la Declaración de Independencia americana, Filadelfia, la capital de las colonias rebeldes, que está a punto de ser ocupada por las tropas británicas del general Howe, es una ciudad en guerra: no solo entre los insurgentes americanos y el ejército británico, sino también entre sus propios habitantes; una guerra que divide y desgarra familias y que engendra todo tipo de traiciones. En primera línea de la batalla, entre las mortíferas armas del enemigo y las puñaladas de sus propios políticos, están los casacas rojas. Para un británico, estos valientes son el martillo que aplastará la incipiente rebelión yanqui. En cambio, para los patriotas americanos, los despreciados «espaldas sangrientas» son los ladrones de su libertad y los saqueadores de su patrimonio. Sam Gilpin es uno de ellos: ha visto morir a su hermano y ahora debe elegir entre el deber a un rey distante, el llamamiento de su propia conciencia y el verdadero significado de la lealtad. Ese invierno, no solo a través de los campos de hielo y fuego de Valley Forge, el olor a pólvora de Germantown y el tronar de los cañones sobre Fort Mifflin, sino también en los lujosos salones de Filadelfia, se reescribirá la Historia y cambiará la fortuna de rebeldes y patriotas para siempre. NECIOS Y MORTALES Londres, siglo xvi. En el corazón de la Inglaterra isabelina, el joven Richard Shakespeare sueña con una brillante carrera en los teatros londinenses, dominados por su hermano mayor, William. Aunque este le da trabajo en su compañía, los papeles son mínimos, y Richard está sin un céntimo y tiene que buscarse la vida para sobrevivir. La gratitud que siempre ha sentido hacia William comienza a resquebrajarse, y llega a plantearse robar los manuscritos de su hermano y venderlos a teatros rivales. Entonces desaparece un manuscrito de gran valor en la compañía de William, y todas las sospechas recaen sobre Richard, que se verá forzado a penetrar en los bajos fondos del Londres más pendenciero para recuperarlo. Súbitamente se ve enredado en un doble juego de apuestas y traiciones, del que solo podrá escapar aplicando todo lo que ha aprendido como actor en los mejores escenarios londinenses… Bernard Cornwell, con su inconfundible maestría narrativa, nos presenta una espectacular novela, con unos personajes inolvidables y un maravilloso retrato del Londres de la época: el lector podrá recorrer sus calles y empaparse de su ambiente de, visitar los palacios de la nobleza, vivir en persona escándalos, rivalidades y ambiciones y ser un personaje más en la sociedad isabelina de entonces. «Una novela rompedora. Recrea de forma prodigiosa la atmósfera y las intrigas de un época apasionante». The Times

Book Short Summary:

Essay aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Länder - Mittelalter, Frühe Neuzeit, Note: 1,6, Universität Hamburg (Historisches Seminar - Arbeitsbereich Mittelalter), Veranstaltung: Die historiographische Rezeption der "Goldenen Bulle von 1356", 7 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Untersuchungsgegenstand Nachdem die Zeitgenossen scheinbar die Bedeutung der Goldenen Bulle für die Herrschaft im Reich nicht absahen, stieg das Interesse nach dem Jahr 1400 bedeutend an. Von großem Interesse für die Forschung muss daher sein, in welcher Weise verschiedene soziale Gruppen zu dieser Zeit die Regularien der Goldenen Bulle rezipierten und in welcher Art sie ihren Inhalt verschriftlichten. Als Grundlage der vorliegenden Arbeit dienen die Regularien, wie sie die Goldene Bulle Karls IV. 1356 vorsah. Hierbei soll ein besonderes Augenmerk auf die Rolle der Kurfürsten gelegt werde, um den Inhalt betreffender Passagen im Anschluss mit den vorzustellenden Textabschnitten dreier Quellen des 15. Jahrhunderts zu vergleichen. Aus der Feder eines Kanonikers des Stiftes St. Theobald von Metz stammt die „Chronique, ou Annales du Doyen de S. Thiébaut de Metz“. Diese Chronik, die nach dem Jahre 1429 entstanden sein muss, gibt einen Einblick in die geistliche Perspektive auf die Goldene Bulle. Für eine stadtbürgerliche, weltliche Perspektive werden „Les coroniques parlans de l’empereur Hanrey cuien de Luxembourg et de sa descendue“ von Jaique Dex und seinem Sohn vorgestellt, die zwischen 1434 und 1438 in Metz entstanden. Zuletzt wird auf die juristische Arbeit von Peter von Andlau hingewiesen, der als Rechtsgelehrter im Jahre 1460 eine erste rechtshistorische Arbeit über das Alte Reich unter dem Titel „Libellus de Cesarea Monarchia“ unter Verwendung der Goldenen Bulle verfasst hat und damit als Begründer des deutschen Staatsrechtes gelten kann. Sein Text soll einen Aspekt der Sicht der juristischen Gelehrtenschaft damaliger Zeit repräsentieren. Die Frage nach der Perspektive dieser Schriften auf die Goldene Bulle wird auf die Rolle der Kurfürsten in den Schilderungen der Metzer Chroniken über den Besuch Kaiser Karls IV. in der Stadt (1356/57) fokussiert. Daher werden sich die Untersuchungen an der Goldenen Bulle und der rechtshistorischen Schrift an den relevanten Ereignissen orientieren, welche zunächst der Einzug des Kaisers und seines Gefolges in die Stadt Metz, dann die Messe zum Heiligen Abend und schließlich das Festbankett auf dem Champ-à-Sailles der Stadt Metz sind.

Book Short Summary:

At the same time that the pace of science and technology has greatly accelerated in recent decades, our legal and ethical oversight mechanisms have become bogged down and slower. This book addresses the growing gap between the pace of science and technology and the lagging responsiveness of legal and ethical oversight society relies on to govern emerging technologies. Whether it be biotechnology, genetic testing, nanotechnology, synthetic biology, computer privacy, autonomous robotics, or any of the other many emerging technologies, new approaches are needed to ensure appropriate and timely regulatory responses. This book documents the problem and offers a toolbox of potential regulatory and governance approaches that might be used to ensure more responsive oversight.

Book Short Summary:

To the entomologist all insects have six legs; the layman tends to use the term "insect" to include the eight-legged spiders and mites. All these creatures are correctly classified as arthropods. Many thousands of the hundreds of thousands of recognised species of arthropods are found in the human environment-domestic, occupational and rec reational. Those species which are obligate parasites of man, the human scabies mite and the head and body lice, produce familiar clinical syndromes. They remain important in medical practice and have been the subject of a great deal of recent research. This is beginning to throw much light on the immunological mechanisms which largely determine the reactions of the host. Dr. Alexander has provided a detailed survey of this work. The wasps, bees, ants and other Hymenoptera which may sting man in self-defence can cause painful, even fatal reactions. The recent work on this important subject has also been thoroughly reviewed. Every dermatologist of experience will admit that he sees many patients in whom he makes a diagnosis of "insect bites", if he has the confidence to do so, or of "papular urticaria" or "prurigo" when he lacks such confidence, mainly because he is at a loss to know which arthropod is likely to be implicated. In his survey of the enormous literature in the entomological, public health and dermatology journals Dr. Alexander has provided an invaluable guide in which the solutions to these clinical mysteries can be sought.

Book Short Summary:

"The reading experience of a lifetime ..."--The Washington Post The National Book Award winner takes readers inside the epic fighting retreat of the Nez Perce Indians In this new installment in his acclaimed series of novels examining the collisions between Native Americans and European colonizers, William T. Vollmann tells the story of the Nez Perce War, with flashbacks to the Civil War. Defrauded and intimidated at every turn, the Nez Perces finally went on the warpath in 1877, subjecting the U.S. Army to its greatest defeat since Little Big Horn as they fled from northeast Oregon across Montana to the Canadian border. Vollmann’s main character is not the legendary Chief Joseph, but his pursuer, General Oliver Otis Howard, the brave, shy, tormented, devoutly Christian Civil War veteran. In this novel, we see him as commander, father, son, husband, friend, and killer. Teeming with many vivid characters on both sides of the conflict, and written in an original style in which the printed page works as a stage with multiple layers of foreground and background, The Dying Grass is another mesmerizing achievement from one of the most ambitious writers of our time.

Book Short Summary:

Maintaining the substance that made Introduction to the Thermodynamic of Materials a perennial best seller for decades, this Sixth Edition is updated to reflect the broadening field of materials science and engineering. The new edition is reorganized into three major sections to align the book for practical coursework, with the first (Thermodynamic Principles) and second (Phase Equilibria) sections aimed at use in a one semester undergraduate course. The third section (Reactions and Transformations) can be used in other courses of the curriculum that deal with oxidation, energy, and phase transformations. The book is updated to include the role of work terms other than PV work (e.g., magnetic work) along with their attendant aspects of entropy, Maxwell equations, and the role of such applied fields on phase diagrams. There is also an increased emphasis on the thermodynamics of phase transformations and the Sixth Edition features an entirely new chapter 15 that links specific thermodynamic applications to the study of phase transformations. The book also features more than 50 new end of chapter problems and more than 50 new figures.

Book Short Summary:

Focusing on the period from September 1964, when Senor Galo Lasso Plaza assumed the UN mediatory role, to the coup d'etat and the Turkish invasion ten years later, Cyprus Before 1974 seeks to unpick the internal conflicts which led to the failure of the peace process in Cyprus. Marilena Varnava studies three phases: Plaza's mediation of 1964-1965; the negotiating impasse on the island during the period 1965-1967; and finally the inter-communal talks of 1968-1974. Varnava argues persuasively that each of these successive phases, particularly the latter two, were inextricably tied to political and social developments within the two main communities on the island itself. In particular, Cyprus before 1974 focuses on the events of 1968 - when the Greek-Cypriot political leadership, and the President of the Republic of Cyprus Archbishop Makarios III, failed to grasp the nature of the changes within the island's post-independence arena. Recurrent attempts within both communities during the talks of that year to create faits accomplis favourable to their own bargaining positions served to heighten the barriers to a stable and peaceful outcome. This study enlarges our understanding of the underlying issues which the Turkish invasion of 1974 were to throw into stark relief and is essential reading for all those who study the Cyprus problem and conflict resolution.

Book Short Summary:

Nigeria is famous for "419" e-mails asking recipients for bank account information and for scandals involving the disappearance of billions of dollars from government coffers. Corruption permeates even minor official interactions, from traffic control to university admissions. In Moral Economies of Corruption Steven Pierce provides a cultural history of the last 150 years of corruption in Nigeria as a case study for considering how corruption plays an important role in the processes of political change in all states. He suggests that corruption is best understood in Nigeria, as well as in all other nations, as a culturally contingent set of political discourses and historically embedded practices. The best solution to combatting Nigerian government corruption, Pierce contends, is not through attempts to prevent officials from diverting public revenue to self-interested ends, but to ask how public ends can be served by accommodating Nigeria's history of patronage as a fundamental political principle.

How to Read a Folktale

Book Short Summary:

How to Read a Folktale offers the first English translation of Ibonia, a spellbinding tale of old Madagascar. Ibonia is a folktale on epic scale. Much of its plot sounds familiar: a powerful royal hero attempts to rescue his betrothed from an evil adversary and, after a series of tests and duels, he and his lover are joyfully united with a marriage that affirms the royal lineage. These fairytale elements link Ibonia with European folktales, but the tale is still very much a product of Madagascar. It contains African-style praise poetry for the hero; it presents Indonesian-style riddles and poems; and it inflates the form of folktale into epic proportions. Recorded when the Malagasy people were experiencing European contact for the first time, Ibonia proclaims the power of the ancestors against the foreigner. Through Ibonia, Lee Haring expertly helps readers to understand the very nature of folktales. His definitive translation, originally published in 1994, has now been fully revised to emphasize its poetic qualities, while his new introduction and detailed notes give insight into the fascinating imagination and symbols of the Malagasy. Haring’s research connects this exotic narrative with fundamental questions not only of anthropology but also of literary criticism.

Book Short Summary:

This essential introductory guide explores and aggressively expands the provocative new field of sexual identity studies. It explains the history of sexual identity categories, such as 'gay' and 'lesbian', covers the reclamation of 'queer' as a term of radical self-identification, and details recent challenges to sexual identity studies posed by transgender and bisexual theories. Donald E. Hall offers concrete applications of the abstract theories he explores, with imaginative new readings of such works as 'The Yellow Wallpaper', Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Orlando and The Color Purple. Throughout, Hall urges the reader to grapple with the changing nature of sexual identity in the twenty-first century and asks searching questions about how we might identify ourselves differently given new technologies and new possibilities for sexual experimentation. To students, theorists and activists alike, Queer Theories issues a challenge to continue to disrupt narrow, traditional notions of sexual 'normality' and to resist setting up new and confining categories of 'true' sexual identity.
