Historical Dictionary of U.S. Latino Literature
RM 454.50 RM 567.90
Kobo
U.s. Latino Literature is defined as Latino literature within the United States that embraces the heterogeneous inter-groupings of Latinos. For too long U.s. Latino literature has not been thought of as an integral part of the overall shared American literary landscape, but that is slowly changing. This dictionary aims to rectify some of those misconceptions by proving that Latinos do fundamentally express American issues, concerns and perspectives with a flair in linguistic cadences, familial themes, distinct world views, and cross-cultural voices. The Historical Dictionary of U.s. Latino Literature contains a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has cross-referenced entries on U.s. Latino/a authors, and terms relevant to the nature of U.s. Latino literature in order to illustrate and corroborate its foundational bearings within the overall American literary experience. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about this subject.

California Costume Collection Roman Gladiator Costume
RM 209.30
HalloweenCostumes
The great Roman gladiators of the time, although slaves, were very well treated for the most part. They were fed well and received the best medical attention money could buy. After all, they were both warriors and entertainers for the Roman people. Who wants to watch a couple weak and hungry dudes slap each other around. We wouldn't (although to be fair we're not sure we'd actually want to watch a real gladiator fight either). These powerful fighters took on not only each other in the ring but lions, tigers, even bears! I know what you're thinking, "oh my!" (You were waiting for that, weren't you?) "I could never be one of those fearsome brawlers!" Well, we're here to say that you absolutely can...look exactly like one of those battling brutes! Fight the good Halloween fight in this Roman Gladiator Costume! Wear the ancient armor of the most brutal group of fighters since the Spartans! (And yes, among other exotic peoples, Spartans fought as gladiators.) Which weapons will you choose? A net and spear (difficult to work but deadly for catching enemies by surprise), Dual swords (flashy and full of offense but hard to block javelins!), or will you pick up the age old classic pairing of the sword and shield? This costume comes with a pullover tunic, body armor that attaches with Velcro, faux suede armbands, a matching headband, foam shin guards, as well as a molded plastic medallion. Add Roman sandals to complete the look and let the crowd go wild with the entertainment you provide! We'd recommend just looking really good in this armor instead of actually fighting since it's not quite as sturdy as what the real deal was! But hey, maybe looks will win the crowd, it's happened before!

California Costume Collection Adult Steampunk Lady Costume
RM 188.40
HalloweenCostumes
Steampunk is many things: a fashion statement, a literary genre, an attitude. And while it may seem like just another passing fad, those in the know understand that this lifestyle will always be a thing of the past – and that’s a good thing.We’ve got a staff full of the pop and counter-culture obsessed, so steampunk has been on our radars for a long time. But for the uninitiated, Steampunk embraces the simplicity of pre-industrial revolution technologies, such as steam power, while at the same time taking on a beautifully modern design aesthetic. This makes for a look that is both retro and modern, which makes it uniquely stylish.This women’s steampunk costume will help you stand out in a crowd this Halloween by showing off that modern sophistication through retro details. The women’s costume includes a dress that has Velcro tabs in the back for a secure fit. The bodice, sleeves, and yoke of the costume are all made of brown velvet for a classic yet elegant look. The dress has cream interlock ruffes at the edges of the sleeves as well as faux suede side panels and an interlock center panel on the bodice. The keyhole cutout below the high, ruffled collar gives it an added bit of detail. The skirt of the dress has an asymmetric hemline that is longer in the back for fuller coverage. The included faux leather buckled straps go across the wrists of brown velvet gloves. The foam top hat never loses its shape and has a brown velvet cover to match the rest of the look. The final touch is the plastic goggles that have an elastic band for a secure and comfortable fit. Add a pair of sexy high heeled boots for a complete look that’s out of this time period!

California Costume Collection Deluxe Men's Toga Costume
RM 104.70
HalloweenCostumes
Nobility! Finery! Passionate and powerful gods! Academic and tempered minds engaging in worthy debate and discourse over complex and important matters! Drunken nights of wild boasting and debauchery! … Well, not all of that seems like it belongs wrapped up into the same perceived culture, but this is the Ancient Rome we know and love and it is completely understandable how so many find themselves seeking to reenact much of the ancient civilization.Whether you have ambitions of high society and the delightful antics that might accompany them or grand designs for a place among the ancient Roman gods, there is certainly one thing that holds true: you must look the part. And that part demands the perfect toga! The illustrious garment is seen worn both by Greek and Roman gods… which is admittedly a bit of a confounding kerfuffle. Are they the same gods interpreted by two different cultures? Two different pantheons who occasionally reside in similar places? Neptune, for one, was a pretty raging guy and rather impossible to deal with on even the best of days, though his Greek counterpart, Poseidon, enjoyed offering council and healing to those he liked… (and tormenting those he didn’t). Well, we might not be able to solve those differences, but we can definitely recognize that they had superb toga taste.And, whether you’re looking at doing a historical reenactment or headed out to the local frat for the perfect toga party, you are going to look fantastic, too, with this Deluxe Men’s Toga costume. The cream colored tunic has a draping front, edged with contrasting black and metallic gold-leaf brocade to give you that exotic and wealthy feel. The sleeves are edged with faux leather and the matching wrist cuffs give you that air of authenticity. Be sure to add the right leather sandals and perhaps a crown of ivy and you’ll be ready to ascend without even needing to debate the deific origins!

California Costume Collection Serpentine Goddess Costume
RM 167.50
HalloweenCostumes
So you want to dress up as a whimsical creature from ancient mythology? And Greek at that? Well let us be the first to compliment you on your refined tastes.But please tell us you're not one of the typical costumers. That you're not dressing up as some love goddess, Greek maid, or the typical (boring) types. No? Good. We thought you might be a little more ambitious than that.After all, Greek mythology is rich, varied and has far more fascinating options for female roles than just the fluffy goddesses or Greek damsels in distress. What about the goddess of war? Or the goddess of the hunt? What about the Amazon warrior women, sirens, and dryads? They're Greek, mythological and have awesome powers!Better yet, what about the Gorgon sisters? Daughters of water deities, these ladies were dangerous, particularly Medusa. That woman had venomous snakes for hair and could petrify onlookers. Talk about exciting (and way better than some fluffy toga nonsense). You could choose to try your hand at being a Gorgon with this Serpentine Goddess Costume. It's a fitted gown with metallic mesh overlay, a snake crown, and cuffs. You get to look whimsical anddangerous! Now we're talking! And although we can't promise any legendary powers with this outfit, just know you'll probably stop some people in their tracks.

Shakespeare: His Life, Art, and Characters With an Historical Sketch of the Origin and Growth of the Drama in England
RM 16.10 RM 17.50
Kobo
Shakespeare, by general suffrage, is the greatest name in literature. There can be no extravagance in saying, that to all who speak the English language his genius has made the world better worth living in, and life a nobler and diviner thing. And even among those who do not "speak the tongue that Shakespeare spake," large numbers are studying the English language mainly for the purpose of being at home with him. How he came to be what he was, and to do what he did, are questions that can never cease to be interesting, wherever his works are known, and men's powers of thought in any fair measure developed. But Providence has left a veil, or rather a cloud, about his history, so that these questions are not likely to be satisfactorily answered. The first formal attempt at an account of Shakespeare's life was made by Nicholas Rowe, and the result thereof published in 1709, ninety-three years after the Poet's death. Rowe's account was avowedly made up, for the most part, from traditionary materials collected by Betterton the actor, who made a visit to Stratford expressly for that purpose. Betterton was born in 1635, nineteen years after the death of Shakespeare; became an actor before 1660, retired from the stage about 1700, and died in 1710. At what time he visited Stratford is not known. It is to be regretted that Rowe did not give Betterton's authorities for the particulars gathered by him. It is certain, however, that very good sources of information were accessible in his time: Judith Quiney, the Poet's second daughter, lived till 1662; Lady Barnard, his granddaughter, till 1670; and Sir William Davenant, who in his youth had known Shakespeare, was manager of the theatre in which Betterton acted.

How do you know if your shoes need shoes? You know, sometimes you need socks to cover your bare feet, and shoes to cover your socks. So what if your shoes need to be covered?

But they’re great for costumes, too!These beige spats are made of polyester faux leather. The shiny studs are only decorative, because these spats fasten with a Velcro strip underneath the studs.

They’re great with gangster and steampunk costumes, really anything with a retro or old-timey look. Or really any costume that could use some additional shoe coverage.

Charades Women's Nefertiti Egyptian Costume
RM 272.20
HalloweenCostumes
In ancient times, it is said that the most beloved of all creatures was the enigmatic feline. It walked with confidence and grace and seemed to carry with it the very pinnacle of divine power. That is, people thought that until they saw the Great Royal Wife of the Pharaoh Akhenaten. At that point, the mood quickly shifted. Nerfertiti possessed true grace and, with it, earned herself ultimate authority and virtual divine right to rule over all the sands of Egypt! With her husband, the two redefined the entire religious spectrum of their people, commanding that only the mighty sun god Aten was worth their worship. If that isn’t divine authority enough, she even had the taste of complete command of the sands when she ruled as Neferneferuaten, the female Pharaoh!But, one life is not enough for a woman of such power. Through reincarnation… or at least adaptation, Nefertiti has been seen in countless forms of media, her story told over and over as Egyptian princess, priestess, and even deity. With such certain dominion, it is only a matter of time before the Queen returns and takes her rightful control of all that lay before her.That time is now, for you, with this Nefertiti Egyptian costume. This black dress with glorious chiffon drape features a neckline edged in metallic gold and an entrancing knee high slit in the left seam. Numerous accents from the luxurious belt and armbands show your noble elegance, though the headdress shows your sheer majesty. Soft black velvet with soft-sculpted gold molding form a cobra with emerald eyes that stare almost intently as your subjects will upon your divine grace. Rule today and forever, Queen Nefertiti!

Historical Dictionary of Colonial America
RM 274.20 RM 304.30
Kobo
The years between 1450 and 1550 marked the end of one era in world history and the beginning of another. Most importantly, the focus of global commerce and power shifted from the Mediterranean Sea to the Atlantic Ocean, largely because of the discovery of the New World. The New World was more than a geographic novelty. It opened the way for new human possibilities, possibilities that were first fulfilled by the British colonies of North America, nearly 100 years after Columbus landed in the Bahamas. The Historical Dictionary of Colonial America covers America's history from the first settlements to the end and immediate aftermath of the French and Indian War. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, an extensive bibliography, and over 400 cross-referenced dictionary entries on the various colonies, which were founded and how they became those which declared independence. Religious, political, economic, and family life; important people; warfare; and relations between British, French, Spanish, and Dutch colonies are also among the topics covered. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Colonial America.

Historical Dictionary of Rwanda
RM 318.50 RM 353.70
Kobo
Blessed with natural beauty and rich vegetation, Rwanda is often called the 'land of a thousand hills' (le pays des mille collines). A proud people, the Banyarwanda (Rwandans) possess a centric view of the world, believing that Imana (God) favors Rwanda, as conveyed through the saying 'Imana yirirwa ahandi igataha i Rwanda' (God spends the day some place else but goes back home to Rwanda to sleep) and the fact that Rwanda means 'the universe.' However, this idyllic view of Rwanda sharply contrasts with the sad history of ethnic strife that has unfolded in the country since the 1950s: the 1959 Hutu Revolution followed by years of anti-Tutsi pogroms, undemocratic regimes, the civil war of 1990-1994, and, more significantly, the April-July 1994 genocide against the Tutsi and Hutu who opposed the killings. This new edition of Historical Dictionary of Rwanda, through its chronology, introductory essays, appendixes, maps, bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on important persons, places, events, and institutions and significant political, economic, social, and cultural aspects, provides an important reference on this central African country.

After losing a wager to the proprietress of the Inn of the Red Chrysanthemum, where patrons take carnal pleasures to wicked and wanton extremes, Charles Gallant reluctantly accepts an assignment to train Miss Katherine, a neophyte, in the ways of submission. His task, no easy undertaking for Miss Katherine is petrified by the goings on at the Red Chrysanthemum, is made more challenging by the constant distraction of a most persistent seductress - Miss Terrell.A former slave from the West Indies, Terrell depends upon the Red Chrysanthemum for room and board. Her only prospect for a comfortable life is to become the mistress of a man with means. Sir Arthur, a wealthy Member of Parliament, is just such a man. Having staked his claim of her, he expects her full devotion. But Terrell cannot quell her scorching desire for Master Gallant, whose deft hand and command of rope bondage inflame her deepest, darkest cravings. All this comes at an unfortunate time for Charles as he pursues his own election to Parliament. Succumbing to Miss Terrell would be a disastrous mistake. For her sake, he would not wish to incur Sir Arthur's wrath. For his own, he risks the endorsement of Sir Arthur, whose support would assure him victory at the polls. Miss Terrell, however, is intent on seducing Master Gallant. Only one thing can stop her, but it will devastate them both.

Historical Burial Grounds of the New Hampshire Seacoast
RM 62.90
Kobo
Historic Burial Grounds of the New Hampshire Seacoast, a photographic study of Colonial Era-burial grounds, uncovers the fascinating history of the area from the 1680s to 1810. These early cemeteries are a direct link to our past, and yet very little has been done to preserve their history through photographs. By understanding how, why, and by whom these gravestones were made, the symbolism they portray can be understood, and we will gain a clearer understanding of the ways in which our ancestors lived and died. The burial grounds and the gravestones within them have often been called open air museums. They contain some of the oldest works of art found in the area; some gravestones are more than 300 years old. Through the author s collection of photographs, one can see the entire range of images present in the area s old burial grounds, including grinning skulls and crossbones, heavenly cherubs, and epitaphs that tell magnificent tales. This collection is a must for anyone interested in local history, genealogy, or colonial-era art.

Historical Dictionary of the Tamils
RM 325.50 RM 361.30
Kobo
The cultural heritage of the Tamils dates back two thousand years. As a language, Tamil has existed since the pre-Christian era, around the same time as the early classical languages Hebrew and Sankrit. The first book on Tamil grammar, the Tolkappiyam, was written around the fifth century Bce. Today, Tamil cuisine has captured the imagination of the vegetarian world, and Tamil cinema, with its heavy political allegories and opera style music, is popular across the globe. Not confined to their homeland of Tamil Nadu, the Tamils constitute a powerful diaspora in Sri Lanka (where they are fighting for their political rights), Singapore (where Tamil is one of the national languages), and Malaysia. The diaspora extends to places as far flung as the U.k, the U.s, and Australia. Tamil temples and cultural centers can be found everywhere from Pittsburgh to San Francisco and from Texas to Toronto. The Historical Dictionary of the Tamils presents a vivid picture of the Tamils' cultural and literary traditions, both the historic past and the vibrant present. This is done through a list of acronyms and abbreviations, a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, black and white photos, maps, and over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries covering Tamil history from the megalithic age to present day and Tamil personalities, economics, literature, music, politics, and cinema. This one-volume reference is an excellent entry point into a deeper understanding of the cultural milieu of the Tamils.

LTD Conceptual and Historical Issues in Psychology
RM 165.50 RM 183.90
Kobo
This book covers key movements that helped to shape psychology - from the early philosophical debate between rationalism and empiricism or realists and antirealists through to the emergence of psychology as a science and the ongoing debates about 'objectivity' and 'truth' and what a science of psychology should be. Often nuanced and complex, the author examines major conceptual issues in the history of psychology that continue to be debated and influence public policy and lay understanding. The latter stages of the book explore notions of individuality, hereditarianism, critical psychology, and feminist perspectives. While deeply rooted in human history, it is made clear that psychology, how it is conceived and practiced, has a bearing on our understanding of what it is to be human. Accessible, objective and above all comprehensive, this book will help students locate psychology in the wider field of science and understand the forces that continue to shape and define it.

Historical Dictionary of the British Empire
RM 595.60 RM 744.60
Kobo
For much of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Britain was the dominant world power, its strength based in large part on its command of an Empire that, in the years immediately after World War I, encompassed almost one-quarter of the earth's land surface and one-fifth of its population. Writers boasted that the sun never set on British possessions, which provided raw materials that, processed in British factories, could be re-exported as manufactured products to expanding colonial markets. The commercial and political might was not based on any grand strategic plan of territorial acquisition, however. The Empire grew piecemeal, shaped by the diplomatic, economic, and military circumstances of the times, and its speedy dismemberment in the mid-twentieth century was, similarly, a reaction to the realities of geopolitics in post-World War II conditions. Today the Empire has gone but it has left a legacy that remains of great significance in the modern world. The Historical Dictionary of the British Empire covers its history through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 700 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about Britain.

After being a British protectorate for about 96 years since the 1888 Treaty of Protection, the modern state of Negara Brunei Darussalam (Abode of Peace) eventually obtained its independence from Great Britain on 1 January 1984. Run by a royal family that established a kingdom in Brunei some 650 years ago, the first sultan, Muhammad Shah (Alak Betatar) was installed in c.1363. Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, the current ruler, is the 29th sultan of the lineage and is one of the richest men in the world.

Historical Dictionary of the Green Movement

Kobo
Human beings have been concerned about nature and their place in it for millennia. Disquiet about the consequences of human action on the natural environment date back to the ancient Greeks and Romans. The efforts of the green movement can be traced back to the nineteenth century. In this period, individuals, groups, and organizations began campaigning for the conservation and preservation of natural areas and the protection of wildlife species. Efforts to combat pollution also began. It was not until the 1960s, however, that the green movement in its more modern incarnation emerged. The green movements that arose at this time maintained the concerns with conservation, preservation, and industrial pollution held by earlier generations, but added to their agenda new issues, including justice, equality, participatory democracy, and sustainability. The second edition of the Historical Dictionary of the Green Movement provides a detailed and comprehensive overview of green parties and movements, green issues, and green concepts. This is done through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on countries in the world where green parties or proto-parties have formed, green movement organizations, major international environmental conferences, and green concepts. This useful reference will be greatly valued by students, academics, journalists, and policymakers alike.

Partytime Costume & Lingerie (Yiwu) Factory Red Viking Wig for Women
RM 83.70
HalloweenCostumes
The Viking life was hard but beautiful. The Norse lived in a harsh yet bewitching land, they farmed between fjord and mountains, in a cold climate right by the sea. While the men were away, shipping off to trade or raid, the women took control of the farms. It wasn't a meager task, the amount of work to do was staggering. At night, though, the community would come together in the warmth of the fire as they wove tapestries or braided each other's hair and told the intricate legends of their people.Capture some of the romance of the Viking village when you put on this gorgeous red wig. With a long braid and soft curls, you'd look right at home standing on the docks looking out for the returning ships. Pair it with one of our Viking dresses and you'll almost be able to smell the salty sea. With those long locks, someone may just mistake you for the Goddess Freyr.

Historical Materialism and the Economics of Karl Marx
RM 17.70 RM 19.30
Kobo
Historical materialism is what is called a fashionable subject. The theory came into being fifty years ago, and for a time remained obscure and limited; but during the last six or seven years it has rapidly attained great fame and an extensive literature, which is daily increasing, has grown up around it. It is not my intention to write once again the account, already given many times, of the origin of this doctrine; nor to restate and criticise the now well-known passages in which Marx and Engels asserted the theory, nor the different views of its opponents, its supporters, its exponents, and its correctors and corruptors. My object is merely to submit to my colleagues some few remarks concerning the doctrine, taking it in the form in which it appears in a recent book by Professor Antonio Labriola, of the University of Rome. For many reasons, it does not come within my province to praise Labriola's book. But I cannot help saying as a needful explanation, that it appears to me to be the fullest and most adequate treatment of the question. The book is free from pedantry and learned tattle, whilst it shows in every line signs of the author's complete knowledge of all that has been written on the subject: a book, in short, which saves the annoyance of controversy with erroneous and exaggerated opinions, which in it appear as superseded. It has a grand opportunity in Italy, where the materialistic theory of history is known almost solely in the spurious form bestowed on it by an ingenious professor of economics, who even pretends to be its inventor.

So you've got your battle-outfit together. Got the tunics, straps, weapons, and armor. Although something doesn't quite sell you. Maybe the outfit is a bit short, or the slit on the warrior dress is a bit too high. Sure, it's functional when you're talking movement (you'll need to run and lunge when you're fighting) but an extra under-layer would be nice.Of course, not any under-layer will do. Especially not for a warrior! Every item you wear should scream battle-hardened, which is exactly why we have these Warrior Studded Boyshorts. They're black, have an elastic waistband, and have studded peplums (those hanging bits). These? These would be perfect for a barbarian/warrior/gladiator. You could layer them or wear them as is, and be happy knowing that every stud oozes with warrior confidence.

HalloweenCostumes
Maybe you're thinking of dressing up like a king or a queen, envisioning heaping piles of coinage and blackbird pies. But that's not what being a ruler is really like! When you're the wealthiest and most powerful person in the realm, you're everybody's first call when something breaks and they need help fixing it. You're not just some fancypants prancing around in their puffy sleeves and twinkling crown: you're like a well-dressed 24/7 plumbing service. And Renaissance plumbing is not something you want to have to fix, no matter what you're wearing!So we made this fine Noble Renaissance Man Costume for people who crave a life of leisure. Sure, somebody wearing an outfit like this probably doesn't bathe in coffers overflowing with gold florins. But they also don't have people knocking on their door at all hours because a kitty cat or pigheaded goat is stuck in a tree again, and nobody else can afford a ladder. A Noble Renaissance Man like this is free to tend his modest parcel of land or become learned, to play chess or train in swordsmanship. Or all of the above!And maybe he's not covered in gold and jewels like the chump wearing the crown, but we figured that this guy would still have some pretty stylish clothes. So we made his tunic and bonnet out of velvet. Then we lined his cape with satin, and fastened it with a flashy golden chain. We even threw in some great-looking boot covers and stuck a feather in his cap for good measure. It's a complete look, ready for a costume party or Renaissance Faire!

Beauty is nothing in comparison to power. You could have anything you want at your beck, and call if you were an empress. Besides you are already beautiful.And if you are going to be an empress, why not be a Roman empress? Rome was kind of awesome. There were lavish parties thrown by the rich.

All the best gossip of war, hedonism, and betrayal.For a woman who already possess the beauty of a queen, we have this Roman Empress Costume so you can not only have beauty, but power as well. You will be kept fairly busy as a ruler of Rome, but maybe you can have the Senate take care of the business of state. While you lounge with your friends. Eating grapes, and drinking wine.

While European eclecticism is examined as a critical and experimental moment in western art history, little research has been conducted to provide an intellectual depth of field to the historicist pursuits of late Ottoman architects as they maneuvered through the nineteenth century?s vast inventory of available styles and embarked on a revivalist/Orientalist program they identified as the? Ottoman Renaissance. Ahmet A. Ersoy?s book examines the complex historicist discourse underlying this belated? renaissance? through a close reading of a text conceived as the movement?s canonizing manifesto: the Usul-i Mi?mari-i? Osmani [The Fundamentals of Ottoman Architecture] (Istanbul, 1873). In its translocal, cross-disciplinary scope, Ersoy?s work explores the creative ways in which the Ottoman authors straddled the art-historical mainstream and their new, self-orientalizing aesthetics of locality. The study reveals how Orientalism was embraced by its very objects, the self-styled? Orientals? of the modern world, as a marker of authenticity, and a strategically located aesthetic tool to project universally recognizable images of cultural difference. Rejecting the lesser, subsidiary status ascribed to non-western Orientalisms, Ersoy?s work contributes to recent, post-Saidian directions in the study of cultural representation that resituate the field of Orientalism beyond its polaristic core, recognizing its cross-cultural potential as a polyvalent discourse.

The Historical Novel, Transnationalism, and the Postmodern Era
RM 217.70 RM 241.70
Kobo
This volume explores the genre of the historical novel and the variety of ways in which writers choose to represent the past. How does an author's nationality or gender impact their artistic choices? To what extent can historical novels appeal to a transnational audience? This study demonstrates how histories can communicate across national borders, often by invoking or deconstructing the very notion of nationhood. Furthermore, it traces how the concerns of the postmodern era, such as postmodern critiques of historiography, colonialism, identity, and the Enlightenment, have impacted the genre of the historical novel, and shows this impact has not been uniform throughout Western culture. Not all historical novels written during the postmodern era are postmodern. The historical novel as a genre occupies a problematic, yet significant space in Cold War literary currents, torn between claims of authenticity and the impossibility of accessing the past. Historical novels from England, America, Germany, and France are compared and contrasted with historical novels from Sweden, testing a variety of theoretical perspectives in the process. This pitting of a center against a periphery serves to highlight traits that historical novels from the West have in common, but also how they differ. The historical novel is not just a local, regional phenomenon, but has become, during the postmodern era, a transnational tool for exploring how we should think of nations and nationalism and what a society should, or should not, look like.

My interest in gathering together a collection of this sort was generated by a fortuitous combination of historical studies under Professor Keith Lehrer and studies in cognitive science under Professor R. Michael Harnish at the University of Arizona. Work on the volume began there while I was an instructor in the Department of Linguistics and was greatly encouraged by participants in the Faculty Seminar on Cognitive Science chaired by Professor Lance J. Rips. I wish to express my appreciation to all of these and to many other individuals with whom I discussed the possibility of contribution to this work. I am especially grateful to the authors of the essays included here, as they showed more patience than I could have hoped for in seeing me through a number of uncertain stages in development of the project. My thanks are also due to my colleague Charles Reid for assistance in reviewing submissions, to Tim McFadden for computer resources, and again, to Keith Lehrer for continuing advice in arrangements for publication. Financial support for manuscript preparation was provided in part under University Research Grant No. 617 from the University Research Council, Youngstown State University.

After Moses' death, Joshua leads the Israelites into the Promised Land. But does this event fulfill the hopes and expectations of the Israelites? The journey seems to continue for the Israelites who encounter new struggles and ambitions. Though in many ways their expectations were realized, perhaps they were not quite what they envisioned. Their story is our story in a different context. God is faithful to the covenant, but the people have difficulty grasping what God is doing in them, and how large God's vision is. How might we understand the battles that God fought in Jericho and beyond on behalf of the Israelite people? Why does the story of a Moabite woman get recorded in these texts, and furthermore in the genealogy of Jesus? How do the kingships of David and Saul differ? As you journey with the Israelites through these narratives of glory and woe, look carefully- for you might even catch a glimpse of your own story as God continues to make you anew.

California Costume Collection Girls Prairie Girl Costume
RM 146.50
HalloweenCostumes
The pioneers were brave people. A picturesque life on the prairie included all sorts of dangers. Relentlessly hot summers gave way to brutally cold winters. People would look up from their work when and see a wall of prairie fires headed toward their farm, growing taller with each foot of grass that was consumed. Then there were the terrifying swarms of locusts that not only ate the crops but would devour the clothes and the clothes line if the laundry hadn't been brought in fast enough. So why, after all that trouble, do we remember the days of the pioneer so fondly? It was a time of hope. Those people with limited options who had only known the crowded city streets of coastal cities could find a place where they could watch the sun set and rise on an open horizon. They could build something all their own and truly be free. The communities out there were the definition of tightly knit. And how awesome would it have been to travel by covered wagon? When your daughter dresses as in this dress, she'll feel as free as that pioneer girl collecting herbs and roots on the prairie. You can almost imagine the larks singing in the grasses as she spins around in the long skirt. Whether she's starring as the charming Laura Ingalls Wilder for in the school play or the whole family is headed to a Rendezvous, this costume will make you feel sentimental for that sun-washed, simple time. One thing is for sure, it's hard not to get into character in this ensemble. Next thing you know she'll want to trade in her I-pad for hoop and stick game.

Historical Dictionary of Irish Cinema

Kobo
In 1898, documentary footage of a yacht race was shot by Robert A. Mitchell, making him the first Irishman to shoot a film within Ireland. Despite early exposure to the filmmaking process, Ireland did not develop a regular film industry until the late 1910s when James Mark Sullivan established the Film Company of Ireland. Since that time, Ireland has played host to many famous films about the country Man of Aran, The Quiet Man, The Crying Game, My Left Foot, and Bloody Sunday as well as others not about the country Braveheart and Saving Private Ryan. It has also produced great directors such as Neil Jordan and Jim Sheridan, as well as throngs of exceptional actors and actresses: Colin Farrel, Colm Meaney, Cillian Murphy, Liam Neeson, Maureen O'Hara, and Peter O'Toole. The Historical Dictionary of Irish Cinema provides essential facts on the history of Irish cinema through a list of acronyms and abbreviation; a chronology; an introduction; a bibliography; and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on the pioneers and current leaders in the industry, the actors, directors, distributors, exhibitors, schools, arts centers, the government bodies and some of the legislation they passed, and the films.

Tribal Communities in the Malay World: Historical, Cultural and Social Perspectives
RM 251.10
Kobo
The Malay World (Alam Melayu), spanning the Malay Peninsula, much of Sumatra, and parts of Borneo, has long contained within it a variety of populations. Most of the Malays have been organized into the different kingdoms (kerajaan Melayu) from which they have derived their identity. But the territories of those kingdoms have also included tribal peoples - both Malay and non-Malay - who have held themselves apart from those kingdoms in varying degrees. In the last three decades, research on these tribal societies has aroused increasing interest. This book explores the ways in which the character of these societies relates to the Malay kingdoms that have held power in the region for many centuries past, as well as to the modern nation-states of the region. It brings together researchers committed to comparative analysis of the tribal groups living on either side of the Malacca Straits - in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore. New theoretical and descriptive approaches are presented for the study of the social and cultural continuities and discontinuities manifested by tribal life in the region.

Historical Dictionary of the Dominican Republic
RM 378.00 RM 472.10
Kobo
The colony called Santo Domingo, which became the Dominican Republic, was the violent crucible in which the ingredients of the New World, drawn from America, Europe and Africa, were fused together for the first time: humans, religions, technologies, animals, plants and learned behaviors. The history of the Dominican Republic diverged from the patterns established by the rest of Latin America, as it ultimately gained independence not from Spain, but from Haiti, and Spain later recolonized the country during a watershed period in the 1860s. In the 20th century, the United States occupied the Dominican Republic on two formative occasions, from 1916 to 1924 and again in 1965-1966, interventions detailed in this volume. At every turn, the backdrop to this pattern of shaky sovereignty has been the extreme instability of Dominican politics, which has been punctuated by incessant civil wars, coups, and periods of dictatorship, until the last few decades. The Historical Dictionary of the Dominican Republic contains a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 500 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, politics, economy, foreign relations, religion, and culture. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the Dominican Republic.

But Sophia refuses to submit to Joseph's demands she will not be taken by him just to satisfy his lust! Not to mention that she has no intention of betraying the trust of Joseph's father, the Viscount of Palmerton, who has taken her into his home and treated her as a daughter by starting an affair with Joseph. But Sophia does not know that it is the Viscount who has sent Joseph away, to give both his son and herself space and time to understand what they really mean to each other. So that when Joseph finally returns, both he and Sophia will find out whether absence really does make the heart grow fonder and the desire for the other greater! The Viscount and the TravellerJamie, the Viscount of Richmond, surprises himself when instead of seeing to it that Miranda is punished for trespassing on his land, promises to offer her all the help that she needs to look after her sick mother. Perhaps the answer to his strange behaviour can be found in a set of striking big brown eyes that appear older and wiser than Miranda's lovely youthful appearance, and which immediately bewitches him, to the point that he longs to take her in his arms. Miranda has always viewed men like Jamie as far removed from her world. He is from a settled ruling class, and she, in comparison, is a wandering traveller with no fixed living location. But now she finds herself questioning all that she believes, as the Viscount becomes her protector and continues to treat her with a real kindness.

Being the ruler of the oceans and seas seems like a pretty decent gig. After all, being the god who controls the seas means that you get to spend a ton of time relaxing on the beach.

You get to be master of challenging the pantheon of Greek gods to a game of volleyball. You probably could even get the honorary title of ruler of Marco Polo games. Yes, being the Greek “God of the Sea” certainly must come with its perks. It’s really quite a shame that you weren’t born into the pantheon… but maybe there’s another way for you to enjoy being the ruler of the sea.This adult Poseidon costume turns you into the one and only master of the seas.

Five Reasons Why Everyone Should Read History Books

History books are accounts of past happenings that occurred throughout human civilization which might have direct and indirect impact on how we live today. Living in this time of rapid change and constant technological development, many individuals today might find that history is no longer significant as we prefer to envision on where we are heading towards instead of reflecting on where we came from. However, there are still important values that we can learn from the history of mankind as we look forward into the future. Find out why everyone should still read history books below.

As Highly Detailed Accounts of Past Events

History books are one of the most important sources of information that we have regarding past events and occurrences. They give a highly-detailed account on a given event or period in history: more so than any documentary can give. Many present archaeologists and researchers are able to unravel important findings and ancient wonders today thanks to the thorough descriptions that were mentioned in these history books.

To Know More About Our Origins

Have you ever wondered why Malaysia has a multi-racial population today? Through history books, you will have a better insight on why people of different races, religions, and culture settled down in Malaysia. You will also find out other interesting facts such as what methods did they use to enter the country with and how did they made a living for themselves in a foreign land so far away from their motherland. Knowing these facts not only widens your general knowledge, but it also enables you to trace back your origins.

So That We Do Not Repeat Past Mistakes

Spanish philosopher, George Santayana once said, “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it”. Throughout human history, countless mistakes were made by our forefathers and past leaders, many of which we can learn something from. Delving into history enables us to understand their failings, to learn from them, and to find ways to improve on their mistakes. Humans have a bad habit of making the same mistakes, hence history books serve as a reminder for us to not repeat similar mistakes again.

So That We Appreciate the Sacrifices of our Forefathers and Ancestors

Many lives were sacrificed throughout the countless wars and battles fought throughout human history. Many of our forefathers and ancestors probably had a part to play in those wars – expanding the glory and influence of their nation, defending their homeland from being conquered by foreign authorities, and so on. Their sacrifices are recorded in history books and by reading them, we will understand more about their valiant efforts and bravery which will allow us to appreciate the sacrifices they had made.

As Preparation for the Future

Although many might argue that what happened in the past will not be relevant today, there are many lessons that we can obtain from the past to make us more well-prepared for the future. For example, when making new policies and decisions, governments often look at a similar situation that occurred in the past to determine its feasibility in the future.
