My Ghost-hunting Wife: Volume 1 (Volume 1 #1)

by 恰如云烟

He took her as his wife, but did not allow her to walk with him. "Remember, we are not a real couple!" She remembered, but he crawled up to her every night to make her do her duty as a wife. Was this for the shrimp? I've been waiting for this day for a thousand years. She scoffed. The bull's skin had blown across the sky until a thousand years of reincarnation appeared … She was born with a nether eye, and she was surrounded by ghosts. He said he wasn't afraid, that he was always around her.

अमरकांत की कहानियों में मध्यवर्ग, विशेषकर निम्न-मध्यवर्ग के जीवनानुभवों और जिजीविषाओं का बेहद प्रभावशाली और अन्तरंग चित्रण मिलता है ! अक्सर सपाट-से नजर आनेवाले कथ्यों में भी वे अपने जिवंत मानवीय संस्पर्श के कारण अनोखी आभा पैदा कर देते हैं ! सहज-सरल रूपबंधवाली ये कहानियां जिंदगी की जटिलताओं को जिस तरह समेटे रहती हैं, कभी-कभी उससे चकित रह जाना पड़ता है ! लेकिन यह अमरकांत की ख़ास शैली है ! अमरकांत के व्यक्तित्व की तरह उनकी भाषा में भी एक ख़ास किस्म की फक्कड़ता है ! लोक-जीवन के मुहावरों और देशज शब्दों के प्रयोग से उनकी भाषा में माटी का सहज स्पर्श तथा ऐसी सोंधी गंध रच-बस जाती है जो पाठकों को किसी छदम उदात्तता से परे, बहुत ही निजी लोक में, ले जाती है ! उनमे छिपे हुए व्यंग्य से सामान्य स्थितियाँ भी बेहद अर्थव्यंजक हो उठती हैं ! अमरकांत के विभिन्न कहानी-संग्रहों में चरित्रों का विशाल फलक ‘जिन्दगी और जोंक’से लेकर ‘मित्र मिलन’ तक फैला हुआ है ! उन्ही संग्रहों की लगभग सब चर्चित कहानियां एक जगह एकत्र होने के कारण इस संकलन की उपादेयता निश्चित रूप से काफी बढ़ गई है !

Η ιστορία του Φίνμπαρ

by Στήβ Βέρνον

Το νερό είναι ψεύτης. Αν πεις μια ιστορία με νερό δεν θα γίνει πιστευτή και θα ξεπλυθεί στην πρώτη δυνατή βροχή ή στα δάκρυα ενός δυνατού κλάματος. Οι ιστορίες που λέγονται για αίμα και πέτρα μένουν περισσότερο στην μνήμη. Ο Φίνμπαρ Τάνερ λέει μια ιστορία στον γιό του, τον Ισαάκ. Είναι μια ιστορία αγάπης, πάθους και θυσίας. Είναι μια ιστορία αίματος και νερού και πέτρας. Είναι μια ιστορία για τα βαθύτερα κύματα που κυλούν μέσα στην καρδιά ενος άντρα. Είναι μια ιστορία της θάλασσας.

Γεννημένος για να επιβιώνει

by Στήβ Βέρνον

Συνέβει μόλις χτές ή ίσως προχτές. Οι βόμβες είχαν πέσει. Κανείς δεν ήξερε το γιατί. Ίσως μια πολιτική μελέτη είχε ληφθεί σοβαρά υπόψιν. Ίσως είχε γίνει μια συμφωνία έρευνας. Ένα νέο σχέδιο να τονωθεί το χρηματιστήριο. Όποιος κι αν ήταν ο λόγος, είχε αναμφίβολα γίνει μια επισταμένη έρευνα και είχαν ληφθεί υπόψιν όλες οι απόψεις. Η πρόταση σίγουρα είχε περάσει απο το συμβούλιο μια η δυο φορές. Πάνω απ' όλα έρχονταν εκλογές. Εκείνοι μπήκαν μπροστά και το έκαναν. Κάθε ίχνος πολιτισμού είχε χαθεί, είχαν σωθεί μόνο κάποια ίχνη οστράκων στα όρια της ύπαρξης. Μπορούμε να πούμε ότι επιβίωναν τα Θαλασσινά...

Pratinidhi Kahaniyan-Geetanjali Shree

by गीतांजलि श्री

यह गीतांजलि श्री की कहानियों का प्रतिनिधि संचयन है। गीतांजलि की लगभग हर कहानी अपनी टोन की कहानी है और विचलन उनके यहाँ गभग नहीं के बराबर है और यह बात अपने आपमें आश्चर्यजनक है क्योंकि बड़े-से-बड़े लेखक कई बार बाहरी दबावों और वक़्ती ज़रूरतों के चलते अपनी मूल टोन से विचिलत हुए हैं। यह अच्छी बात है कि गीतांजलि श्री ने अपनी लगभग हर कहानी में अपनी सिग्नेचर ट्यून को बरकरार रखा है। लेकिन सवाल यह है कि गीतांजलि कीकहानियों की यह मूल टोन आखिर है क्या? एक अजीब तरह का फक्कड़पन, एक अजीब तरह की दार्शनिकता, एक अजीब तरह की भाषा और एक अजीब तरह की रवानी। लेकिन ये सारी अजीबियतें ही उनके कथाकार को एक व्यक्तित्व प्रदान करती हैं। यहाँ यह कहना ज़रूरी है कि यह सब परम्परा से हटकर है और परम्परा में समाहित भी।

Constructing Sovereignty between Politics and Law (New International Relations)

by Tanja E. Aalberts

This book explores the interplay between sovereignty, politics and law through different conceptualizations of sovereignty. Despite developments such as European integration, globalization, and state failure, sovereignty proves to be a resilient institution in contemporary international politics. This book investigates both the continuity and change of sovereignty through an examination of the different ways it is understood; sovereignty as an institution, as identity; as a (language) game; and as subjectivity. In this illuminating book, Aalberts examines sovereign statehood as a political-legal concept, an institutional product of modern international society, and seeks an interdisciplinary approach that combines international relations and international law. This book traces the consequences of this origin for the conceptualization of sovereign statehood in modern academic discourse, drawing on key jurisprudence and international treaties, and provides a new framework to consider the international significance of sovereignty. As an innovative approach to a critical institution, Constructing Sovereignty between Politics and Law will be of interest to students and scholars of international relations, international relations theory and international law.

Baltic Biographies at Historical Crossroads (Studies in European Sociology)

by Aili Aarelaid-Tart Li Bennich-Björkman

This book brings together life stories from five generations of Balts, living through the diverse and recurring transformations of the twentieth century: occupations, war, independence, totalitarianism, and democratic rule and market economy. The twentieth century history of the Baltic countries has often been deeply tragic. Lying on the coastline of the Baltic Sea, these rather small but strategically well located territories have historically found themselves in the middle of many power struggles between larger states, empires and other power-holders: the Teutonic Knights, Swedish kings, Tsarist Russia, Nazi Germany, the Soviet Union. Today, they are once again forced to stand up to the Russian Federation. Biographical interviewing is a field focused on individuals, and on how those individuals choose to re-create and present their lived lives, make meaning of it through the narratives they tell. To interpret the biographical narrations of Lithuanians, Latvians and Estonians, shaped by complex and controversial historical background, the authors use Pierre Bourdieu’s concept of social and cultural capitals, the principles of Erving Goffman’s framing analysis and Alessandro Portelli’s distinction of private and public spheres, Anton Steen’s investigations of post-Socialist elites and Piotr Sztompka’s theory of cultural trauma, etc. Given analyses of particular biographical narrations are supplemented by brief historical and sociological overviews, which allow the reader to better understand the contexts of lived lives, and the mental atmosphere in which the interviews were conducted.

False Value (Rivers of London #8)

by Ben Aaronovitch

Now in hardcover, the eighth book of the bestselling Rivers of London series returns to the adventures of Peter Grant, detective and apprentice wizard, as he solves magical crimes in the city of London.Peter Grant is facing fatherhood, and an uncertain future, with equal amounts of panic and enthusiasm. Rather than sit around, he takes a job with émigré Silicon Valley tech genius Terrence Skinner's brand new London start up—the Serious Cybernetics Company. Drawn into the orbit of Old Street's famous 'silicon roundabout', Peter must learn how to blend in with people who are both civilians and geekier than he is. Compared to his last job, Peter thinks it should be a doddle. But magic is not finished with Mama Grant's favourite son. Because Terrence Skinner has a secret hidden in the bowels of the SCC. A technology that stretches back to Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage, and forward to the future of artificial intelligence. A secret that is just as magical as it technological—and just as dangerous.

Jokes and the Linguistic Mind

by Debra Aarons

Through the lens of cognitive science, Jokes and the Linguistic Mind investigates jokes that play on some aspect of the structure and function of language. In so doing, Debra Aarons shows that these 'linguistic jokes' can evoke our tacit knowledge of the language we use. Analyzing hilarious examples from movies, plays and books, Jokes and the Linguistic Mind demonstrates that tacit linguistic knowledge must become conscious for linguistic jokes to be understood. The book examines jokes that exploit pragmatic, semantic, morphological, phonological and semantic features of language, as well as jokes that use more than one language and jokes that are about language itself. Additionally, the text explores the relationship between cryptic crossword clues and linguistic jokes in order to demonstrate the difference between tacit knowledge of language and rules of language use that are articulated for a particular purpose. With its use of jokes as data and its highly accessible explanations of complex linguistic concepts, this book is an engaging supplementary text for introductory courses in linguistics, psycholinguistics and cognitive science. It will also be of interest to scholars in translation studies, applied linguistics and philosophy of language.

The Palgrave Handbook of Holocaust Literature and Culture

by Victoria Aarons Phyllis Lassner

The Palgrave Handbook of Holocaust Literature and Culture reflects current approaches to Holocaust literature that open up future thinking on Holocaust representation. The chapters consider diverse generational perspectives—survivor writing, second and third generation—and genres—memoirs, poetry, novels, graphic narratives, films, video-testimonies, and other forms of literary and cultural expression. In turn, these perspectives create interactions among generations, genres, temporalities, and cultural contexts. The volume also participates in the ongoing project of responding to and talking through moments of rupture and incompletion that represent an opportunity to contribute to the making of meaning through the continuation of narratives of the past. As such, the chapters in this volume pose options for reading Holocaust texts, offering openings for further discussion and exploration. The inquiring body of interpretive scholarship responding to the Shoah becomes itself a story, a narrative that materially extends our inquiry into that history.

Public Participation, Science and Society: Tools for Dynamic and Responsible Governance of Research and Innovation

by Timo Aarrevaara Mikko Rask Saulė Mačiukaitė-Žvinienė Loreta Tauginienė Vytautas Dikčius Kaisa Matschoss Luciano d’Andrea

The field of public participation is developing fast, with phenomena such as citizen science and crowdsourcing extending the resource base of research, stimulating innovation and making science more accessible to the general population. Promoting public participation means giving more weight to citizens and civil society actors in the definition of research needs and in the implementation of research and innovation. As yet, there is limited understanding of the implications of widespread use of public participation and as a result, there is a risk that it will become a burden for research and an obstacle to bridging the gap between research and society. This volume presents the findings of a three-year international study on innovative public participation. The resulting work studies the characteristics and trends of innovative public participation through a global sample of 38 case studies. It provides theoretical generalisations on the dynamics of public participation, suggestions for an evaluation framework and clear empirical examples of how public participation works in practice. Illustrated by best practice cases, the authors identify characteristics which contribute to successful public participation. The book is aimed primarily at scholars and practitioners of public participation, as well as research managers, policy makers and business actors interested in related issues. There is also a secondary market for students and scholars of European governance studies, sociology and political sciences.

Global Perspectives on Tarzan: From King of the Jungle to International Icon (Routledge Research in Cultural and Media Studies)

by Michelle Ann Abate Annette Wannamaker

This collection seeks to understand the long-lasting and global appeal of Tarzan: Why is a story about a feral boy, who is raised by apes in the African jungle, so compelling and so adaptable to different cultural contexts and audiences? How is it that the same narrative serves as the basis for both children’s cartoons and lavish musical productions or as a vehicle for both nationalistic discourse and for light romantic fantasy? Considering a history of criticism that highlights the imperialistic, sexist, racist underpinnings of the original Tarzan narrative, why would this character and story appeal to so many readers and viewers around the world? The essays in this volume, written by scholars living and working in Australia, Canada, Israel, The Netherlands, Germany, France and the United States explore these questions using various critical lenses. Chapters include discussions of Tarzan novels, comics, television shows, toys, films, and performances produced or distributed in the U.S., Canada, Israel, Palestine, Britain, India, The Netherlands, Germany and France and consider such topics as imperialism, national identities, language acquisition, adaptation, gender constructions, Tarzan’s influence on child readers and Tarzan’s continued and broad influence on cultures around the world. What emerges, when these pieces are placed into dialogue with one another, is an immensely complex picture of an enduring, multi-faceted global pop culture icon.

Recent Advances on Soft Computing and Data Mining: Proceedings of the Fourth International Conference on Soft Computing and Data Mining (SCDM 2020), Melaka, Malaysia, January 22–⁠23, 2020 (Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing #978)

by Jemal H. Abawajy Rozaida Ghazali Nazri Mohd Nawi Mustafa Mat Deris

This book provides an introduction to data science and offers a practical overview of the concepts and techniques that readers need to get the most out of their large-scale data mining projects and research studies. It discusses data-analytical thinking, which is essential to extract useful knowledge and obtain commercial value from the data. Also known as data-driven science, soft computing and data mining disciplines cover a broad interdisciplinary range of scientific methods and processes. The book provides readers with sufficient knowledge to tackle a wide range of issues in complex systems, bringing together the scopes that integrate soft computing and data mining in various combinations of applications and practices, since to thrive in these data-driven ecosystems, researchers, data analysts and practitioners must understand the design choice and options of these approaches. This book helps readers to solve complex benchmark problems and to better appreciate the concepts, tools and techniques used.

Emerging Methods in Psychology (History And Theory Of Psychology Ser.)

by Emily Abbey Seth Surgan

The motivation for this volume in the History and Theory of Psychology series is to look across sub-disciplines within psychology and highlight instances where researchers transcended the tendency to think about methodology along traditional lines. Contributors have located examples of researchers who built upon existing ideas to create methods true to their interests and theoretical convictions.Emerging Methods in Psychology shows how a discipline creates new methods and carves out possibilities that not only generate data, but also advance knowledge of human psychological functioning. It concentrates on showcasing the possibilities that exist when the researcher focuses on the relationship between theory, method, and data.The question of what kind of expertise is required is a key issue. This is particularly the case in psychology where the tradition of standardizing methods over the last century has served to stabilize research questions. Knowledge creation is deeply affective and ambiguous rather than the secure accumulation of data by a socially legitimized procedure. This innovative volume moves beyond psychology as social engineering into new varieties of social knowledge.

New Orleans Class Cruisers (Shipcraft Ser. #No. 13)

by Lester Abbey

The ShipCraft series provides in-depth information about building and modifying model kits of famous warship types. Lavishly illustrated, each book takes the modeller through a brief history of the subject class, highlighting differences between sister-ships and changes in their appearance over their careers. This includes paint schemes and camouflage, featuring colour profiles and highly detailed line drawings and scale plans. The modelling section reviews the strengths and weaknesses of available kits, lists commercial accessory sets for super-detailing of the ships, and provides hints on modifying and improving the basic kit. This is followed by an extensive photographic survey of selected high-quality models in a variety of scales, and the book concludes with a section on research references - books, monographs, large-scale plans and relevant websites.The subject of this volume is the seven-ship New Orleans class, probably the US Navys most hard-fought heavy cruisers of the War three were sunk in action but others survived massive damage, and by 1945 three out of four of the navys most decorated ships were of this class. Although designed within treaty limitations, they proved powerful and well-balanced ships, and their unparalleled fighting record makes them popular modelling subjects.

Why We Eat, How We Eat: Contemporary Encounters between Foods and Bodies (Critical Food Studies)

by Emma-Jayne Abbots Anna Lavis

Why We Eat, How We Eat maps new terrains in thinking about relations between bodies and foods. With the central premise that food is both symbolic and material, the volume explores the intersections of current critical debates regarding how individuals eat and why they eat. Through a wide-ranging series of case studies it examines how foods and bodies both haphazardly encounter, and actively engage with, one another in ways that are simultaneously material, social, and political. The aim and uniqueness of this volume is therefore the creation of a multidisciplinary dialogue through which to produce new understandings of these encounters that may be invisible to more established paradigms. In so doing, Why We Eat, How We Eat concomitantly employs eating as a tool - a novel way of looking - while also drawing attention to the term 'eating' itself, and to the multiple ways in which it can be constituted. The volume asks what eating is - what it performs and silences, what it produces and destroys, and what it makes present and absent. It thereby traces the webs of relations and multiple scales in which eating bodies are entangled; in diverse and innovative ways, contributors demonstrate that eating draws into relationships people, places and objects that may never tangibly meet, and show how these relations are made and unmade with every mouthful. By illuminating these contemporary encounters, Why We Eat, How We Eat offers an empirically grounded richness that extends previous approaches to foods and bodies.

Green Infrastructure for Sustainable Urban Development in Africa

by John Abbott

This book shows for the first time how green infrastructure can work in an African urban context. On one level it provides a major rethinking of the role of infrastructure in urban society since the creation of networked infrastructure in the early twentieth century. On another, it explores the changing paradigms of urban development through the fundamental question of how decisions are made. With a focus on Africa's fast-growing secondary towns, where 70 per cent of the urban population live, the book explains how urban infrastructure provides the key to the relationship between economic development and social equity, through the mediation of natural resources. Adopting this view enables investment to be channelled more effectively to provide the engine for economic growth, while providing equitable services for all residents. At the same time, the mediation of resource flows integrates the metabolism of the city into the wider ecosystem. This vision leads to a new way of thinking about infrastructure, giving clear definition to the concept of green infrastructure. On the basis of research gathered throughout an extensive career, John Abbott draws in particular from his experience in Ethiopia to demonstrate the ways in which infrastructure needs to respond to the economies, societies and natural environments of twenty-first century urban Africa.
