Reverend Feelgood

by Lutishia Lovely

In this installment of Lutishia Lovely's wickedly sexy Hallelujah Love series, an energetic young pastor works overtime to keep the ladies in his congregation deliciously satisfied. . .Nathaniel "Nate" Thicke is a preaching prodigy. At only twenty-eight years old, he's the senior pastor of The Gospel Truth Church. In addition to carrying on the preaching tradition begun by his great-grandfather, Nate is also just plain carrying on wherever the spirit--and the flesh--lead him. And when it leads him to three women from the same family, bickering and backstabbing follow. . . Content with having his pick of the flock, Nate is surprised to discover he's fallen head-over-heels in love, and decides to become a one-woman man. But the other ladies aren't about to give him up so easily. They're prepared to do whatever it takes to get their man back--even if it means adding a few more shocking sins to their list. . . "Worth every moment." --Donna Hill"Lovely once again expertly illuminates the wacky world of the devout and devoutly devilish." --Publishers Weekly"Characters are lively, funny, and realistic. I turned each page eagerly waiting to see what would/could happen next. I cannot wait to see how Ms. Lovely will follow up this story." --APOOO BookClub

The Reveries of the Solitary Walker, Botanical Writings, and Letter To Franquières

by Jean-Jacques Rousseau Christopher Kelly Charles E. Butterworth Alexandra Cook Terence E. Marshall Roger D. Masters

"I am now alone on earth, no longer having any brother, neighbor, friend, or society other than myself" proclaimed Rousseau in Reveries of the Solitary Walker. Reveries, along with Botanical Writings and Letter to Franquieres, were all written at the end of his life, a period when Rousseau renounced his occupation as author and ceased publishing his works. Presenting himself as an unwilling societal outcast, he nonetheless crafted each with a sharp eye on his readership. Whether addressing himself, a mother hoping to interest her child in botany, or a confused young nobleman, his dialogue reflects the needs of his interlocutor and of future readers. Although very different in style, these three works concern overlapping subjects. Their unity comes from the relation of the other writings to the Reveries, which consists of ten meditative"walks" during which Rousseau considers his life and thought. The third and fourth walks discuss truth, morality, and religious belief, which are the themes of the Letter to Franquieres; while the seventh is a lengthy discussion of botany as a model for contemplative activity. The overarching themes of the volume-the relations among philosophic or scientific contemplation, religion, and morality-provide Rousseau's most intimate and final reflections on the difficulties involved in understanding nature.

Review of the Draft Climate Science Special Report

by Medicine Engineering National Academies of Sciences

The United States Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) is moving towards a sustained assessment process that allows for more fluid and consistent integration of scientific knowledge into the mandated quadrennial National Climate Assessment. As part of this process, the USGCRP is developing the Climate Science Special Report (CSSR), a technical report that details the current state-of-science relating to climate change and its physical impacts. The CSSR is intended to focus on climate change in the United States and to inform future USGCRP products. Review of the Draft Climate Science Special Report assesses whether the draft CSSR accurately presents the scientific literature in an understandable, transparent and traceable way; whether the CSSR authors handled the data, analyses, and statistical approaches in an appropriate manner; and the effectiveness of the report in conveying the information clearly for the intended audience. This report provides recommendations for how the draft CSSR could be strengthened.

Reviewing Shakespeare

by Paul Prescott

Ranging from David Garrick's Macbeth in the 1740s to the World Shakespeare Festival in London 2012, this is the first book to provide in-depth analysis of the history and practice of Shakespearean theatre reviewing. Reviewing Shakespeare describes the changing priorities and interpretative habits of theatre critics as they have both responded to and provoked innovations in Shakespearean performance culture over the last three centuries. It analyses the conditions – theatrical, journalistic, social and personal – in which Shakespearean reception has taken place, presenting original readings of the works of key critics (Shaw, Beerbohm, Agate, Tynan), whilst also tracking broader historical shifts in the relationship between reviewers and performance. Prescott explores the key function of the 'night-watch constable' in patrolling the boundaries of legitimate Shakespearean performance and offers a compelling account of the many ways in which newspaper reviews are uniquely fruitful documents for anyone interested in Shakespeare and the theatre.

The Revision of Psychoanalysis

by Erich Fromm Rainer Funk

Bestselling author Erich Fromm revisits Sigmund Freud's work, ushering psychoanalysis into the modern ageIn The Revision of Psychoanalysis, renowned psychoanalyst and social psychologist Erich Fromm applies his innovative, humanist approach to Freud's often contradictory ideas. Fromm pays special attention to the fact that human beings' main problem has been the way they are related to the outer world, to others, and to themselves. Human passions and their effects have to be explained differently than Freud did, and psychoanalysis must be revised to accommodate this--a fact Fromm explains in his typically brilliant way. The result is a comprehensive, updated look at psychoanalysis and humanistic thinking that is as relevant today as when it was first written. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erich Fromm including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.

Revisiting 1759

by John G. Reid Phillip Buckner

The British victory on the Plains of Abraham in September 1759 and the subsequent Conquest of Canada were undoubtedly significant geopolitical events, but their nature and implications continue to be debated. Revisiting 1759 provides a fresh historical reappraisal of the Conquest and its aftermath using new approaches drawn from military, imperial, social, and Aboriginal history.This cohesive collection investigates many of the most hotly contested questions surrounding the Conquest: Was the battle itself a crucial turning point, or just one element in the global struggle between France and Great Britain? Did the battle's outcome reflect the superior strategy of General James Wolfe or rather errors on both sides? Did the Conquest alter the long-term trajectories of the French and British empires or simply confirm patterns well underway? How formative was the Conquest in defining the new British America and those now living under its rule?As this collection makes vividly clear, the Conquest's most profound consequences may in fact be quite different from those that have traditionally been emphasized.

Revisiting the Origins of Human Rights

by Slotte, Pamela and Halme-Tuomisaari, Miia Pamela Slotte Miia Halme-Tuomisaari

Did the history of human rights begin decades, centuries or even millennia ago? What constitutes this history? And what can we really learn from 'the textbook narrative' - the unilinear, forward-looking tale of progress and inevitable triumph authored primarily by Western philosophers, politicians and activists? Does such a distinguishable entity as 'the history of human rights' even exist, or are efforts to read evidence in past events of the later 'evolution' of human rights mere ideology? This book explores these questions through a collective effort by scholars of history, law, theology and anthropology. Rather than entities with an absolute, predefined 'essence', this book conceptualizes human rights as open-ended and ambiguous. It taps into recent 'revisionist' debates and asks: what do we really know of the history of human rights?

Revitalizing City Districts

by Hebatalla Abouelfadl Dalila Elkerdany Christoph Wessling

This book explores the consequences of change in the urban form, the amalgam of the urban space and buildings and on the processes leading to planning and design. Urban form and its fabric result from a multitude of individual interests, ideas and decisions which in turn result in specific and locally diverse spatial arrangements. These processes which are shaping our built environment are embedded in and determined by different contexts of political, cultural and social-economic norms and values. Urban development and the transformation of urban structures are triggered by technological innovations, laws and taxes, new behaviors or the impact of environmental conditions as well as other factors. Based on case studies from Egypt and the Middle East, together with some cases from Germany and Turkey, this book covers a wide range of change processes focused on historic and inner city districts.

Revitalizing Rural Economies

by Christine Dukelow Jeff Dixon Yolande Chan

Rural communities in Canada are facing a new reality where traditional economic bases such as agriculture, forestry, and manufacturing have eroded. The digital divide, whereby rural Canada lags in access to broadband, has created further barriers to participating in the emerging knowledge economy. Revitalizing Rural Economies offers practical tools for developers, business people, and community leaders. The result of a partnership between the Monieson Centre at Queen's School of Business and entrepreneurs, policy makers, economic development officials, and elected representatives from rural communities across southern Ontario, Revitalizing Rural Economies draws on four years of community-based research to provide strategies for economic revitalization. Integrating case studies and community development guidelines, the authors explore themes such as the building blocks for community economic development (CED), innovation, community assets, vibrant downtowns, social capital accumulation through collaboration and inclusion, and new opportunities for rural economies through creative and value-added businesses. Designed as a practical guide, this book serves as a primer to CED, while also allowing those familiar with the field to delve deeper. Case studies ground the discussion in the challenges and opportunities facing communities. The book provides ideas and resources to foster the long-term resilience of rural regions.

Revival

by Stephen King

Prepárate para el final más oscuro, inquietante e inolvidable de cuantos ha escrito Stephen King. «Al menos en un sentido nuestras vidas son ciertamente como las películas. El elenco principal se compone de la familia y los amigos. Los actores son los vecinos, los compañeros de trabajo, los profesores y los conocidos.[...]»Pero a veces entra en nuestra vida una persona que no encaja en ninguna de estas categorías.[...]»Cuando pienso en Charles Jacobs -mi quinto en discordia, mi agente del cambio, mi maldición-, se me hace imposible creer que su presencia en mi vida tuvo que ver con el destino.» Octubre de 1962. En una pequeña localidad de Nueva Inglaterra la sombra de un hombre se cierne sobre un niño que juega ensimismado con sus soldaditos. Cuando Jamie Morton levanta la vista, ve una figura imponente. Se trata de Charles Jacobs, el nuevo pastor, con quien pronto establecerá un estrecho vínculo basado en su fascinación por los experimentos con electricidad. Varias décadas más tarde, Jamie ha caído en las drogas y lleva una vida nómada tocando la guitarra para diferentes bandas por bares de todo el país. Entonces vuelve a cruzarse con Jacobs -dedicado ahora al espectáculo y a crear deslumbrantes «retratos de luz»-, y este encuentro tendrá importantes consecuencias para ambos. Su vínculo se convertirá en un pacto más allá incluso del ideado por el Diablo, y Jamie descubrirá que «renacer» puede tener más de un significado. Esta inquietante novela, que se extiende a lo largo de cinco décadas, muestra uno de los más terroríficos finales que Stephen King haya escrito jamás. Es una obra de arte del maestro de contar historias de nuestro tiempo, en la tradición de Hawthorne, Melville o Poe. Una historia oscura sobre la adicción, el fanatismo y lo que puede existir al otro lado de la vida...
