Book Excerpt :

질풍노도의 시기를 통과 중인 우리들에게 고하는 유쾌한 선언, “즐겁게 살지 않는 것은 죄다!” 아쿠타가와상 수상작가 무라카미 류의 자전적 성장소설. 급성장의 궤도를 달리던 전후 일본사회에서 질풍노도의 시기를 보낸 열일곱 살 청춘들의 축제 같은 이야기를 담았다. 1969년에 고등학교 시절을 보낸 작가가 당시 주변에서 일어난 일을 바탕으로 쓴 『69_sixty nine』은 일본에서만 100만 부 이상의 판매고를 기록하고, 국내에서도 각계각층 명사들의 추천 도서로 꾸준히 언급되는 등 무라카미 류의 대표작으로 확고하게 자리매김한 작품이다. 집필 당시 32세였던 작가는 이 자전소설을 쓰면서 1969년을 “인생에서 세 번째로 재미있었던 해”라고 말했다. 작품 제목인 ‘69’의 1969년은, 파리학생운동의 여파로 도쿄대학이 입시를 중지하고, 히피들은 사랑과 평화를 부르짖고, 드골은 권좌에서 물러나고, 인간이 달에 족적을 남긴 기념비적 해였으며, 한편에선 베트남전쟁의 총성이 들려오던 격동의 시절이었다. 이러한 시대적 배경에, 미군 기지가 주둔하던 작은 도시를 무대로 한 이 소설은 반미를 외치면서도 그들의 문화와 스타에 열광하고, 반전을 외치면서도 예쁜 여학생에게 열광했던 솔직하고 대담한 고교생들의 모습을 그리고 있다. 류의 소설을 많이 접해본 독자라면 『69』가 어딘지 모르게 낯설게 느껴질지도 모른다. 이 낯섦은 아마도 이 소설의 밝은 분위기 때문일 것이다. 류는 후기에 이 책을 “정말 즐거운 소설이다. 이렇게 즐거운 소설은 다시는 쓸 수 없을 것”이라고 말했다. 즐거운 인생을 위해 마치 싸움을 하듯 ‘축제’처럼 살아갈 거라는 작가의 말처럼, ‘어떻게 사는 것이 즐거운 인생인가’에 대해 질문을 던지고 있다. 한편 『69_sixty nine』은 2004년 재일교포 3세로서 청춘들의 삶과 에너지를 감각적으로 그려온 이상일이 감독을 맡고, 츠마부키 사토시와 안도 마사노부가 주연으로 열연한 동명의 영화로 제작된 바 있다. 또한 2018년 극장 ‘아트나인’의 ‘일본영화기획전’을 통해 청춘영화의 명작 〈69 식스티 나인〉이 재개봉되는 등, 국내 처음 출간된 지 17년이 지난 지금까지도 무라카미 류의 애독자와 영화 팬들의 큰 사랑을 받으며 청춘 소설의 고전으로 여전히 깊은 감동을 주고 있다.

Book Short Summary:

The most detailed set of studies ever on all aspects of one of the most beautifully decorated Egyptian non-royal tombs, new in paperback This lavishly illustrated book is the culmination of a project to document and conserve the tomb of Menna, one of the most beautiful and complex painted tombs of the ancient Egyptian necropolis at Luxor. Through conservation, the tomb, which previously lay open to environmental influence, was brought back to its former glory. Aided by non-invasive methods of scientific analysis, the historical and cultural importance of Menna’s paintings can now be viewed and studied and enjoyed by a worldwide audience. High-definition photography and drawings complement specialist essays by scholars, scientists, and technicians, who discuss the artistic and cultural significance of the paintings, their architectural context, and scientific importance. Directed by Dr. Hartwig and administered by the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) as part of its Egyptian Antiquities Conservation Project, the project was funded by a grant from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), sponsored by Georgia State University, and carried out in collaboration with Egypt’s Supreme Council of Antiquities.

  • Pdf File: after-69-ce-writing-civil-war-in-flavian-rome.pdf

Book Short Summary:

The fall of Nero and the civil wars of 69 CE ushered in an era scarred by the recent conflicts; Flavian literature also inherited a rich tradition of narrating nefas from its predecessors who had confronted and commemorated the traumas of Pharsalus and Actium. Despite the present surge of scholarly interest in both Flavian literary studies and Roman civil war literature, however, the Flavian contribution to Rome’s literature of bellum ciuile remains understudied. This volume shines a spotlight on these neglected voices. In the wake of 69 CE, writing civil war became an inescapable project for Flavian Rome: from Statius’s fraternas acies and Silius’s suicidal Saguntines to the internecine narratives detailed in Josephus’s Bellum Iudaicum and woven into Frontinus’s exempla, Flavian authors’ preoccupation with civil war transcends genre and subject matter. This book provides an important new chapter in the study of Roman civil war literature by investigating the multi-faceted Flavian response to this persistent and prominent theme.

Book Short Summary:

This volume investigates the plots of the Genesis stories. Rather than fragmenting Genesis into hypothetical sources and reading each in isolation from the others, as has often been the case in scholarship, this final-form reading exposes the coherence and complexity of the book. In particular, the initial announcements of plot, prefacing each major block of the book are shown to exercise an intimate yet surprising influence over the narratives they govern. The seemingly naive stories of Genesis, when read wholistically, offer profound insights into the interplay between divine providence and human free will.

When schoolboy Jason Cutler is killed late one night in a hit-and-run, the police are puzzled by the presence of a letter in his locker, to which is attached a five-pound note. They are unable to identify its author, nor can they ascertain why the boy was out so late at night. Solicitor Rosa Epton has followed the case with interest, but when a client she has recently defended on a drugs charge turns up dead in the grounds of the school, her involvement becomes professional. It seems unlikely that the two cases are connected, but why does Jason's brother deny having seen him in the days leading up to his death? And who was the girl seated opposite Rosa on the train and behaving erratically on the day news of the accident came out?

Book Short Summary:

“A must for CSNY fans.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review The first ever biography focused on the formative and highly influential early years of “rock’s first supergroup” (Rolling Stone) Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young—when they were the most successful, influential, and politically potent band in America—in honor of the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock and the formation of the band itself. 1969 to 1974 were true golden years of rock n’ roll, bookmarking an era of arguably unparalleled musical power and innovation. But even more than any of their eminent peers, David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Graham Nash, and Neil Young channeled and broadcast all the radical anger, romantic idealism, and generational angst of their time. Each of the members had already made their marks in huge bands (The Hollies, Buffalo Springfield, The Byrds), but together, their harmonies were transcendent. The vast emotional range of their music, from delicate acoustic confessionals to raucous counter-culture anthems, was mirrored in the turbulence of their personal lives. Their trademark may have been vocal harmony, but few—if any—of their contemporaries could match the recklessness of their hedonistic and often combative lifestyles, when the four tenacious, volatile, and prodigal songwriters pursued chemical and sexual pleasure to life-threatening extremes. Including full color photographs, CSNY chronicles these four iconic musicians and the movement they came to represent, concentrating on their prime as a collective unit and a cultural force: the years between 1969, when Woodstock telegraphed their arrival to the world, and 1974, when their arch-enemy Richard Nixon was driven from office, and the band (to quote Graham Nash himself) “lost it on the highway.” Even fifty years later, there are plenty of stories left to be told about Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young—and music historian Peter Doggett is here to bring them to light in the meticulously researched CSNY, a quintessential and illuminative account of rock’s first supergroup in their golden hour for die-hard fans, nostalgic flower-children, and music history aficionados alike.

Book Short Summary:

Drawing from his teenage years, Todd Strasser’s novel revisits a tumultuous era and takes readers on a psychedelically tinged trip of a lifetime. With his girlfriend, Robin, away in Canada, eighteen-year-old Lucas Baker’s only plans for the summer are to mellow out with his friends, smoke weed, drop a tab or two, and head out in his microbus for a three-day happening called the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. But life veers dramatically off track when he suddenly finds himself in danger of being drafted and sent to fight in Vietnam. If that isn’t heavy enough, there’s also the free-loving (and undeniably alluring) Tinsley, who seems determined to test Lucas’s resolve to stay faithful to Robin; a frighteningly bad trip at a Led Zeppelin concert; a run-in with an angry motorcycle gang; parents who appear headed for a divorce; and a friend on the front lines in ’Nam who’s in mortal danger of not making it back. As the pressures grow, it’s not long before Lucas finds himself knocked so far down, it’s starting to look like up to him. When tuning in, turning on, and dropping out is no longer enough, what else is there?

Book Short Summary:

Interest in herbal medicines, aromatherapy, and other traditional applications of aromatic plants has increased tremendously over the last few years. However, very little "hard data" on the properties and uses of these plants has been available until now. This handbook provides the most complete collection of chemical data available on aromatic mints (Lamiaceae). The authors introduce the new field of study, aromathematics, which involves aromatic compounds and their biological activities. This book contains a wealth of quantitative data, including more than 500 references on 10,839 chemicals from 251 assays of 205 unique taxa, combined with 3,324 biological activities and 256 recommended daily allowances and lethal doses. An exhaustive guide, the handbook is the ultimate resource for assessing the potential medicinal value of a particular species.

Book Short Summary:

This unique book discusses programming, design and building evaluation providing a ‘joined up’ approach to building design. By linking the functional and architectonic qualities of a building, the authors show the practical implications of the utility value of buildings. Starting by looking at how the relationship between form and function has been dealt with by different approaches to architecture from a historical perspective, it goes on to discuss how the desired functional quality and utility value of a building can be expressed in a brief and given a physical form by the architect. Finally, it advises on how to carry out post-occupancy evaluation and provides the architect with methods and techniques for testing whether the intended utility value of a building has been achieved.
