Book Short Summary:

An essay is a piece of non-fiction writing that discusses a specific topic in depth but with brevity. After the time of Montaigne of France and Francis Bacon of England, who were the pioneers and guides in essay writing, the subjects and form of essays have ramified (17 types). Now, essays are an integral part of the language curriculum in schools. In the segment of non-fiction, the essays are a genre in themselves. Present-day essays need to be short but loaded with information on the topic covered. In this volume in your hand, the author has attempted to cover topics of common interest to inquisitive readers at large, from every walk of the society. These essays are humorous, emotive, informative and instructive too. They are encapsulated chronicles of the past and present. The reader may randomly pick up any page to browse through; the narratives which are, in length, sized down to your span of attention, are sure to keep you more informed.

Book Short Summary:

Volume 3 "POLITICS and GOVERNMENT’ of the American Cities; series. This collection brings together more than 200 scholarly articles pertaining to the history and development of urban life in the United States during the past two centuries. The articles about municipal government contained in the third volume include discussions of how rapid urbanization in the early nineteenth century produced a chain reaction, creating first the need for new political institutions, then the rise of machine politics, and, finally, reform movements that designed, advocated, and implemented new institutional structures such as the commission and city manager forms of government. Volume 3 also includes articles that consider the nature of intergovernmental relations at the end of the twentieth century and the connections between the governments of cities and the governments of the regions surrounding them—localities, states, and the nation.

Book Short Summary:

First Published in 1981. Pater is certainly the least widely read and understood of any of the Victorian critics and creative writers, though there are signs of a coming revival of interest in him. Each of the discussions included in this issue devoted to Pater touches, in some significant way, on his "imaginative sense of fact," on his struggle with the objective ‘givens’ of experience (ideas or individuals), and on his efforts to co-opt or turn that Other into a reordered reflection of his own image.

Book Short Summary:

The central theme of this collection of essays, first published in 1978, is the basic tension in Nietzsche, and so in his work, between the urge to weave a satisfying web out of reality and the equally strong compulsion to expose its painful truths. The book aims to stress, not to play down, the embarassing and fruitful fact that he cannot be neatly pigeonholed either as a literary figure or as a professional philosopher. The book meets a long-felt need for a study in English of both the literary and the philosophical aspects of Nietzsche's work, based on his authentic texts, and will be welcomed by all students of modern European thought and Literature.

Book Short Summary:

David Lynch has been accused for decades of sexism and even misogyny in his work, due largely to frequent depictions of violence against women. Yet others see in Lynch's work the deification of the female, and actresses like Laura Dern and Naomi Watts jump at every opportunity to work with him. "He is the master of the juxtaposition of the creepy and the sweet, the sexual and the chaste," wrote W's Lynn Hirschberg. "And at the heart of this tense, intriguing friction, you will always find Lynch's women." The Women of Lynch is a deep, provocative dive into this paradox, featuring ten essays, thought pieces and impressionistic interpretations of Lynch's depiction of women on screen, by an eclectic array of accomplished female critics, scholars, performers, and writers, each tackling this vexing conundrum in her own unique way. The book also contains an interview with actress Mädchen Amick (Shelly Johnson in Twin Peaks) where she gives first hand knowledge on what it is like to be a woman of Lynch. Lisa Hession interviews the original woman of Lynch, Charlotte Stewart (Eraserhead, Twin Peaks) about being the actress with longest active span of working with David Lynch. This is the first essay book about the work of David Lynch by all female writers. Readers will enjoy The Women of Lynch: A Collection of Essays. This book contains essays by: x.

Book Short Summary:

First published in 1995. The essays in this volume demonstrate how Victorian women took up various positions along a continuum that ranged from the desire of Shelley’s creature for the power and acceptance it associated with the house to the rejection of Brontë’s heroine of the immobility and powerlessness she ultimately experienced there. More specifically the essays in this volume explore the nature of the Victorian woman’s domestic relations by centring in one activity that most informed her place in what was often the father’s house: housekeeping. The essays in this edition determine how writers, especially novelists, both male and female, used housekeeping to construct, reconstruct, represent, and inscribe the female self and condition. This title will be of interest to students of history and literature.

Book Short Summary:

New York Times Bestseller● Publishers Weekly Bestseller ● Los Angeles Times Bestseller ● Wall Street Journal Bestseller From his first vlog back in 2008 to his full-length film directorial debut Not Cool, Shane Dawson has been an open book when it comes to documenting his life. But behind the music video spoofs, TMI love life details, and outrageous commentary on everything the celebrity and Internet world has the nerve to dish out is a guy who grew up in a financially challenged but loving home in Long Beach, California, and who suffered all the teasing and social limitations that arise when you’re a morbidly obese kid with a pretty face, your mom is your best friend, and you can't get a date to save your life. In I Hate Myselfie, Shane steps away from his larger-than-life Internet persona and takes us deep into the experiences of an eccentric and introverted kid, who by observing the strange world around him developed a talent that would inspire millions of fans. Intelligent, hilarious, heartbreaking, and raw, I Hate Myselfie is a collection of eighteen personal essays about how messy life can get when you’re growing up and how rewarding it can feel when the clean-up is (pretty much) done.

Book Short Summary:

In Reading My Mind, former broadcaster and communication professor Roberta Cole shares provocative observations on the ever-changing landscape of our innermost thoughts. In this collection of narratives, she explores both the breathtaking and heartbreaking moments of a life - an enviable radio and teaching career, the haunting memory of family and friends, rituals of the daily grind, the EastCoast/WestCoast experience, retirement and the passage of time. Cole also takes on the rewards of nature and travel, as well as the social subtext underlying technology, communication with physicians, treatment of the elderly, homelessness, restaurant behavior, and even hair salons. The essays in Reading My Mind help us navigate the barrage of stimuli surrounding us and let us know we are not alone. They also provide a helpful look at what lies beyond the obviousa seductive peek at what we would make of things if we were to read each others minds.

Book Short Summary:

This book may be unpopular in some circles. The exposure of the truth usually is when it has been hidden or distorted (particularly by those who would profit most by its absence or continued distortion). Yet, are we not our brothers keeper? Are we not to assist or enlighten our kinsmen...our fellow human, if we can? Frequently, throughout these essays will be found references to the mystical forces that are indeed a part of our every day existence. I speak of the essence of fair play, charity, right...justice. These forces are more than just charming concepts or notions. They are forces that shape every living souls destiny...forces that we sometimes foolishly play with every day, often with terrible consequences. There are bogus philosophies being practiced that have been and are rapidly and steadily spelling the decline of humankind. I seek, with the readers indulgence and patience, to expose or illuminate our long practiced folly. I expect there to be great opposition, particularly from many of the Black segment of Christendom. For oftentimes, concepts and ideals are attacked and/or ostracized by the masses while being led by profiteers with selfish interests, especially if those ideals are not embraced by the masses. But, are the masses always right? What about a mob? The focal point of these essays is not to lament the plight of the so-called African American. Any number of American minorities (Native American, Hispanics, Oriental, et al) can be exemplary of the casualties of the American (European) encounter, though not necessarily to the same degree. I use the African American to illustrate what has happened to a segment of humanity (many of whom I believe to be descendants of the Lost Tribes of Israel, the Chosen Ones) whose ancestors dared to violate the laws and hold with contempt those forces which govern our daily existence and bring affront to the Great Spirit, The Mighty One. And if the Chosen of the Most High can receive such a fall from grace, then none are above or beyond reproach. Perhaps now is the time for other considerations...other possibilities.

It’s Not Easy Being Ordinary A Collection of Essays, Quotes, Poetry, Letters, and Extraordinary Art of an Ordinary Person By: Vandella Poe I close my eyes and envision the garden. It is a spring morning, and the air is crisp with the first morning’s frost. I see myself standing in the garden amongst the freshly planted seeds that were started a week ago. They have already begun to extend above and beyond Mother Nature’s dark, moist blanket, earnestly reaching toward the clear blue sky, the warmth of the sun. I had forgotten this photograph was not lost but just a forgotten memory lodged in the depths of my heart, just waiting to be remembered. When Vandella Poe left an abusive relationship and retired, she had a second chance to do what she really wanted to accomplish in life, to leave a mark, something to say, “This was who I was, what I loved doing.” If you have a second chance to do something you love, do it. Life is too short not to. This is who she was and what she enjoyed doing and was passionate about: being an artist.

Book Short Summary:

From amethyst to obsidian, Basic Witches author Jaya Saxena explores the multi-faceted meanings and history behind eleven popular crystals in this relatable personal essay collection. Highly prized for their beauty, crystals can take the shape of jewelry, household objects, and an array of self-care products. But it’s the ideas they stand for that draw people to their raw forms. Like astrology, tarot, and modern witchcraft, crystals help practitioners understand themselves and the wider world around them. In this collection of sharply observed essays, Jaya Saxena reflects on—and challenges—the ideas associated with eleven popular stones, including unconditional love (rose quartz), happiness and success (citrine), balance (amethyst), self-care (black tourmaline), purity (pearl), imposter syndrome (pyrite), toxic positivity (carnelian), change (opals), traditional concepts of marriage (diamonds), presentation versus identity (obsidian), and death (amber). The result is a deeply personal book with universal appeal, exploring how we assign meaning and power to crystals in order to give meaning and power to our lives.

Book Short Summary:

From the great thinkers of Ancient Greece to the illustrious forebears of America’s founding to the fearless leaders of free peoples who inspired the twentieth-century world through the disturbing turmoil and despair of two global wars—wars that resulted in genocide, mass destruction, and cultural decay—all of history seems to direct us, respectively, toward the light of truth, the sound of liberty, and the resolve of democracy. Encapsulating this and more with a sweeping series of essays, the exciting new author Evan Lanning takes us up to today’s disturbing world of critical un-thinking, historical illiteracy, unrelenting group-think, and agenda-driven “truth-telling.” In this world of unconstructive, ineffective, and ultimately destructive passions of party spirit, Lanning asks us to consider the limits of our knowledge and to surrender our respective feelings in exchange for the nobler pursuit of truth rooted in fact. Only when we recognize how much we do not know will we be able to find our way through this darkened world. Only when we realize how much humanity cannot know will we understand our need for a deeper source of meaning. In The Global and American Spirit, Lanning attempts to pierce through the darkness of political acquiescence by asserting that we must lift our eyes to the light of Truth and stand upon the shoulders of the greats in order to see the American spirit reborn. Lanning appeals to the American people to take heart once again that “the energy, the faith, [and] the devotion which we bring to this endeavor will light our country and all who serve it.” In short, he asks Americans to rekindle Faith, in order that “the glow from that fire can truly light the world!”

Book Short Summary:

In the early spring, the blooming of the wildflower trillium — also known as "wake-robin" — heralds the return of migrating birds. In Wake-Robin: A Collection of Essays About the Birds, John Burroughs offers absorbing reading for birdwatchers, nature lovers, and anyone interested in ecology and conservation. This 1871 collection of essays by the distinguished naturalist showcases his special gift for combining scientific accuracy with a grand poetic expression. These essays particularly focus on birds of the Adirondacks and the Washington, D.C. region. "What I offer, in fact, is a careful and conscientious record of actual observations and experiences, and is true as it stands written, every word of it. But what has interested me most in ornithology is the pursuit, the chase, the discovery," he notes, adding that "I have tried to present a live bird, a bird in the woods or the fields, with the atmosphere and associations of the place, and not merely a stuffed and labeled specimen." Although scrupulously factual, Burroughs' investigations are less those of a scientist and more in the nature of an experienced and articulate observer who delights in sharing the timeless joys of birdwatching and the outdoors.

Leibniz. Language, Signs and Thought

Book Short Summary:

Why was Leibniz so deeply interested in signs and language? What role does this interest play in his philosophical system? In the essays here collected, Marcello Dascal attempts to tackle these questions from different angles. They bring to light aspects of Leibniz’s work on these and related issues which have been so far neglected. As a rule they take as their starting point Leibniz's early writings (some unpublished, some only available in Latin) on characters and cognition, on definition, on truth, on memory, on grammar, on the specific problems of religious discourse, and so on. An effort has been made to relate the views expressed in these writings both to Leibniz’ more mature views, and to the conceptions prevailing in his time, as well as in preceding and following periods. The common thread running through all the essays is to what extent language and signs, in their most varied forms, are related to cognitive processes, according to Leibniz and his contemporaries.

Book Short Summary:

In what sense does time exist? Is it an objective feature of the external world? Or is its real nature dependent on the way man experiences it? Has modern science brought us closer to the answer to St. Augustine's exasperated outcry, 'What, then, is time?' ? Ever since Aristotle, thinkers have been struggling with this most confounding and elusive of philosophical questions. How long does the present moment last? Can we make statements about the future that are clearly true or clearly false? And if so, must we be fatalists? This volume presents twenty-three discussions of the problem of time. A section on classical and modern attempts at definition is followed by four groups of essays drawn largely from contemporary philosophy, each preface with an introduction by the editor. First, in a chapter entitled 'The Static versus the Dynamic Temporal', four philosophers advance solutions to McTaggart's famous proof of time's unreality. In the next two sections, the discussion turns to the meaning of the 'open future' and to the much-debated nature of 'human time'. Finally, modern science and philosophy tackle Zeno's celebrated paradoxes. The essays by Adolf Grnbaum, Nicholas Rescher, and William Barrett are published for the first time in this volume.

Book Short Summary:

The carefully selected “essays” presented here were originally written and posted on my blog between the years of 2000 and 2013. I consider them to be some of my best: the “cream of the crop” of what has not yet been published in a book. A few have been condensed down from their original dialogue formats. Per the subtitle, I'd like this collection to be more along the lines of essays per se, with less written-out Bible verses: a bit more readable and flowing, so to speak. A good deal of my apologetics writing or research is more for the purpose of reference / documentation rather than “straight reading.” The 23 chapters will be organized under seven broad topics. In order, they are: 1) Observations on Catholic Apologetics, 2) Bible and Tradition / Rule of Faith, 3) Justification and Salvation, 4) Sacramentalism, 5) Purgatory, 6) Prayer and the Communion of Saints, and 7) The Blessed Virgin Mary. My sincere hope is that this book is edifying, educational, and enjoyable for the reader.

Book Short Summary:

Want to build an evolutionary tree? Here’s your chance to learn how. The field of bioinformatics was born out of the need to manage, analyze, and examine raw genomic data in meaningful and exciting ways, such as the discipline of computational phylogenetics would provide. The evolutionary inferences reached among the several peer-reviewed articles contained in this book are neither novel nor breakthrough. However, it is in the application of computational techniques, experiment design, and probabilistic models where this research finds a stronghold. As a matter of practicality, the original manuscripts have been edited for a broader audience due to its highly technical language. The essays compiled in these pages have undergone a facelift, from their original scientific format into a more reader-friendly layout, as to better accommodate two different perspectives – both experts and non-experts alike.

Book Short Summary:

Author Chatha Akbar Ghulam believes God is universal. With love as his message, he shares a thought-provoking collection of essays, poems, and meditations illustrating how he has come to understand the concept of God and why he feels a loving heart is the only requirement needed to have faith in God. Chatha shares how as a youth he came to discard the traditional teachings of heredity and customs and eventually achieved inner peace and contentment by recognizing universal good and truth. As he offers his opinion on such subjects as God and war, life and death, wisdom versus ignorance, the yearnings of a soul, and heaven and hell, Chatha provides a fresh, impartial perspective on God’s influence in today’s world. By sharing his thoughts on the differences between the self-righteous and true believers through personal anecdotes and inspiration from Punjabi mystic poets, Chatha quietly encourages spiritual seekers of all faiths to look inward and focus on gratitude rather than desires. Faith, Not Religions offers one man’s inspiring reflections regarding his faith in God, his opinions on organized religions, and his journey to seek his own spiritual path in life.

Book Short Summary:

This collection of essays presents an authoritative and penetrating comment on the use of the computer in teaching law. The authors have taught and developed instructional materials for many years; they are intimately familiar with the substance of the law, as well as with the teaching techniques that have proven successful. Among the subjects discussed are the development of law-related programmed workbooks, predecessors to computer-aided instruction (CAI); research findings and their implications for the design of law-related CAI exercises; advantages and limitations of CAI programs in law; and attempts to measure the effectiveness of CAI as a method of law instruction. The authors outline the process involved in writing and publishing computer-aided instruction in the field of law and describe current experiments through which several exercises in law are being cooperatively used via a computer network, EDUNET.
