Kobo

More than mere entertainment, German theater was a crucial component of culture often influencing society and politics in German-speaking countries whose influence gradually reached much further with the emergence of outstanding playwrights like Goethe, Schiller, Hauptmann, and Brecht, as well as exceptional dramas such as Faust and The Threepenny Opera. The Historical Dictionary of German Theater covers the field of theater performance in the German language, concentrating on German-speaking Europe, through a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant playwrights, directors, producers, designers, actors, plays, theaters, cities, dramatic genres, and movements such as the Sturm und Drang, Naturalism, and Expressionism.

Each girl brings a secret. After surviving the terrible trip across the sea, they find life in the Jamestown colony is not what they dreamed. Reading Secrets AND Lies is like stepping into history.

With 10,000 years of history, Peru, with its formidable Inca and pre-Inca civilizations and its rich colonial and post-colonial past, formed the very foundations of multi-ethnic South American history and society. It is a country rich in natural and human resources, but has been largely confined to a state of underdevelopment for much of its history. However, since 2000 Peru has shown significant signs of economic and political progress as its economy grew rapidly and it polity democratized. The Historical Dictionary of Peru packages in a unique way the course of Peru's evolution and recent trajectory, with substantial sections devoted to describing and analyzing the country's history, politics and social order, combined with shorter entries on the important people and events that have contributed to its current state of affairs.

Historical Memories in Culture, Politics and the Future
RM 263.90 RM 293.20
Kobo

This book is written to satisfy the individual's desire for intellectual stimulation, to sow in the mind the seed of new ideas, and involve the reader in productive debates. It covers culture, history and the future, raising questions, presenting arguments and engaging the enquirer in reflection. It illustrates the relationship between past history and current social practices, proposing the concept of compartmentalization of behaviour, where history is understood to contribute to why there are so many displaced excesses amongst the English, alongside an ethos of moderation - why, in a country with such high civility, there is hooliganism, why riots in English cities can be particularly violent, why the country has the highest rate of teenage pregnancy in Europe, why it lags behind many others in the early diagnosis of cancer - and what can be done about this. The book also explores what affects us all globally - the making of history, the psychology of dictatorships, the unconscious in history, the development of new democracies, the emerging psychosocial trends in the world to come, the cognitive, emotional and identity-ethos of the evolving century and the future of history. Finally, it identifies history's foundations and the fundamental human tendency which, beyond the class interests of Marx and the search for recognition of Hegel, motivates and perpetuates history itself.

A Book of Cats: Literary, Legendary and Historical
RM 10.00
Kobo

The cat a goddess, an enigma, a playmate and a friend. Dorothy M. Stuart approaches her subject along four main roads: archaeology, history, legend and literature. The Ancient Egyptian Mau is here; the enchanted cats of Irish legend; the Gib of Gammer Gurton s Needle. Hodge and Selima, Jeffry and Dinah refused to be left out; but there are less familiar examples, too: the cat which voluntarily shared the Earl of Southampton s captivity in the Tower; the kitten in whose defence John Keats had a stand up fight with a brutal butcher-boy of Hampstead; the delinquent who at dead of night gnawed the strings of her master s lute. Graymalkin, the witches familiar, comes into the picture; and we catch fascinating glimpses of two furry sympathizers licking the tears from Florence Nightingale s cheeks, and of Cardinal Richelieu solemnly adding something on behalf of a cat and her kittens to the modest pension assigned by His Eminence to Mademoiselle Marie de Gournay, Montaigne s polished female friend. Dorothy M. Stuart is better known for her elegant and polished biographies, but in this short book we see a lighter side of her pen in an appreciation of feline company.

The Viscount's Test of LoveOn the eve of his travels abroad Joseph makes it clear to Sophia that he is determined to have her, but he will wait patiently until she is ready to give into the strong attraction between them. 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. And even more confusing for Miranda are the powerful emotions and feelings that Jamie is able to stir from w

When we think of heroes, a number of names come rushing to the mind, but only a few of them have been spoken of in as many incarnations as the mighty half-god of Greek mythology, Hercules! Whether he’s an animated youngster eager to prove himself to his fuzzy mentor or a long-haired and suave friend-to-all on a legendary adventure, the guy has it all! Strength, a winning smile, notorious combat proficiencies, and… did we mention half-god? Hard to compete with that one!Sure, several of the ancient tales of Hercules don’t have the best of beginnings… or endings, honestly, but you have to give credit to a guy who can keep his chin up despite having a rather grumpy step-mother and uncle full of underworld angst. Between tackling ferocious monsters birthed from Echidna and winning the heart of a few Grecian lasses, Hercules has countless tales to be told.And, this year, the stories can continue when you don your kiddo in this Child Hercules costume. A comfortable white pullover tunic starts the look and you can armor your child up, next, with the foam body armor and attached cape. You won’t have to spend all day gearing your kid up, either, thanks to an easy fabric tie in the back of the armor. (Now, why didn’t the ancient Greeks think of that!?) Warrior-like armbands and leg guards close with Velcro and ensure that your child will be protected from all manner of monsters, but it might be a good idea to pick up a nice sword and lion-emblazoned shield just to make the beasties think twice about trying your demigod! The only question that remains is to figure out which of the kiddo’s parents is the god!

Historical Dictionary of the Berbers (Imazighen)
RM 404.70 RM 449.60
Kobo

Berbers, also known as Imazighen, are the ancient inhabitants of North Africa, but rarely have they formed an actual kingdom or separate nation state. Ranging anywhere between 15-50 million, depending on how they are classified, the Berbers have influenced the culture and religion of Roman North Africa and played key roles in the spread of Islam and its culture in North Africa, Spain, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Taken together, these dynamics have over time converted to redefine the field of Berber identity and its socio-political representations and symbols, making it an even more important issue in the 21st century. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of the Berbers contains a chronology, an introduction, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 200 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, places, events, institutions, and aspects of culture, society, economy, and politics.

A Historical Lottery: Europe to Appalachia and Beyond - A Ramsey Family Through 1500 Years of Social and Cultural Change by Richard T. Childress This ambitious work spans 1500 years of history from the pagan Saxon area in continental Europe though England to lowland Scotland, Northern Ireland, and on to the American frontier. It draws upon published works that are summarized to describe the cultural, political, religious, and economic facets of European history that formed the values of millions of people with similar backgrounds as the Ramsey family. The journey from Northern Ireland through the initial Ramsey immigration to Pennsylvania is detailed along with the subsequent migration through the Shenandoah Valley counties following the frontier into deep Appalachia in central West Virginia. More than genealogy or academic description of the subcultures encountered, the book humanizes the experiences with tragedy and triumph, local color, and detailed narratives of political and religious changes from the American Revolution through the Civil War and the end of the frontier. The work contains never before published material on the Civil War in Appalachia that deeply affected the Ramsey family, collateral relatives, and the State of West Virginia. Included are photographs along with battle and migration maps. A section is also devoted to the Childress family, earlier migrants to the James River settlements, then to North Carolina and Virginia. The work includes colorful oral histories and substantial archival material from national repositories to local courthouses and historical societies. It attacks popular stereotypes of Appalachia while retaining its distinct character through time. The work is intended to be a valuable contribution to descendants of the families within the book, but also a comprehensive reference work for Americans with similar ethnic origins in Europe that migrated with millions of others to the first American frontier.

The Historical Atlas of Breeding Birds in Britain and Ireland 1875-1900
RM 55.70 RM 58.30
Kobo

The landscape of Britain has been irreversibly changed over the last century. Modern agriculture, urban expansion, industry and transport have all left their mark, altering the face of the countryside forever. Shifting with the changing scene, the fortunes of Britain and Ireland's bird populations have fluctuated dramatically over the years. As current farming practices have evolved, the natural habitats and breeding patterns of many species have been disrupted. Urban and industrial growth has brought with it the pressures of new land use, pesticides, pollution and human interference. The activities of sportsmen, collectors and farmers have also taken their toll over the years. The new Poyser title The Historical Atlas of Breeding Birds in Britain and Ireland 1875-1900 is a fascinating book resulting form years of meticulous research by the author, Simon Holloway, who provides an absorbing account of the distribution changes of Britain and Ireland's birds over the last quarter of a century. Large colour distribution maps and their accompanying text paint a species-by-species picture of a period which completely transformed the landscape of this country. It is, says Natural World magazine, "a classic case of 'why did no one write this book before?'.The experienced birder, using a knowledge of species requirements, can only marvel at what the long-vanished landscapes were then like." Birdwatch praises Simon Holloway's achievement, saying: "This book brings together so much information from disparate sources, and its status maps present such a clear picture of our late Victorian avifauna, that it should take its place beside the BTO atlases on the bookshelf." While Birdwatching adds: "If you are interested in the historical side of birds and their populations this book will be an endless source of fascination." As with all Poyser publications, the attention to detail, the lovingly produced illustrations and the sheer breadth of knowledge demonstrated by the autho

Historical Controversies and Historians
RM 187.00 RM 207.50
Kobo

For students new to the subject of history there are many books on the "theory" of writing history but fewer on how history is actually "practised". This work by a team of historians from the University of Sussex fills this gap. The first half of the book examines a number of notable controversies that have been, and still are, the subject of historical debate - for example, race in South Africa, the legacy of the French Resistance, the origins of the Welfare State. These illustrate the issues involved in "doing" history. The second half of the book focuses upon the historians themselves - such as Tawney, Carr, Buckhardt, Weber, Thompson - and demonstrates how the historian puts his/her own spin on historical interpretation. Together the study of controversies and historians shows with clarity the practical issues of historical method. "Historical Controversies and Historians" should be a useful primer for any student embarking on a course in history.

Greece has come a long way since then; it has been a client state, first of Britain and then of the United States, for much of its modern existence but now it has secured an equal place at the top tables of Nato and the EU. The Historical Dictionary of Modern Greece explores the modern history of this country through a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on important persons, places, events, and institutions, as well as on significant political, economic, social, and cultural aspects.

Historical Dictionary of Croatia

Croatia, a former republic of Yugoslavia, has been a self-declared independent state since July 25, 1991. To its own people, however, it is a much older country that is finally getting another chance to forge a nation. The Croats trace their roots back many centuries, and the depth of this resurgent nationalism helps explain why Yugoslavia split as it did and where it did. As Croatia and its people try to make a success of their new state, they can take hope in the notable progress that has already been made in regards to its economic restructuring, democratization, and a rapprochement with their neighbors and Europe more broadly. The third edition of the Historical Dictionary of Croatia relates the history of this country through a detailed chronology, an introduction, a bibliography, and cross-referenced dictionary entries on significant persons, places, and events; institutions and organizations; and political, economic, social, cultural, and religious facets.

Contested Ground: The Historical Debate Over NASA's Mission - From Sputnik to the Apollo Moon Landing, Space Shuttle and Space Station Decisions, Commercial Space
RM 38.70
Kobo

Since the opening of the space age nearly 50 years ago, the U.s. government has spent close to $1 trillion on space-related activities. Although by no means the largest public expenditure over that period-it is easily dwarfed by national defense, social security, and countless other federal programs-it is still, by any measure, an enormous amount of money. It therefore seems perfectly reasonable to ask: what has the American taxpayer gotten in return for this rather large investment?This book will examine the changing views of NASA's mission(s) held by government officials over the years. Drawing upon relevant concepts in political science and public administration, it will attempt to account for the shifts in space policy, by describing the political, economic, and technical factors that helped bring them about. Among the questions to be addressed are: what did policymakers envision when they created the agency in the first place? Why was there such strong (albeit not entirely unanimous) support for Project Apollo in the early 1960s, and why did it fade away in such a relatively short time? What caused Nasa and the program to languish throughout most of the 1970s, and why did it reemerge (after a fashion) in the 1980s? Finally, what is the agency's role today?There is one fundamental question about the agency which, although it has existed literally since its founding in 1958, has seldom even been asked directly, let alone examined in any detail. Stated simply: at no point in NASA's history has there ever been a clear, specific statement of its actual purpose. What, in a word, do policymakers believe that the agency is for?What is NASA's Mission? * 2. Analytical Framework * 3. Prehistory: Space Policy Before Sputnik * 4. Nasa: Born out of Fright, 1957-1961 * 5. Mission Advanced * 6. Mission Accomplished. Now What? * 7. Space Policy Redefined (Again) * 8. Dollars, Not Dreams; Business, Not Government * 9.

Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism in Historical Perspective

Previously published as a special issue of The Journal of Israeli History, this book presents the reflections of historians from Israel, Europe, Canada and the United States concerning the similarities and differences between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism primarily in Europe and the Middle East. Spanning the past century, the essays explore the continuum of critique from early challenges to Zionism and they offer criteria to ascertain when criticism with particular policies has and has not coalesced into an "ism" of anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. Including studies of England, France, Germany, Poland, the United States, Iran and Israel, the volume also examines the elements of continuity and break in European traditions of anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism when they diffused to the Arab and Islamic. Essential course reading for students of religious history.

Historical Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Cinema

Kobo

Russian and Soviet cinema occupies a unique place in the history of world cinema. Legendary filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein, Vsevolod Pudovkin, Dziga Vertov, Andrei Tarkovsky, and Sergei Paradjanov have created oeuvres that are being screened and studied all over the world. The Soviet film industry was different from others because its main criterion of success was not profit, but the ideological and aesthetic effect on the viewer. Another important feature is Soviet cinema's multinational (Eurasian) character: while Russian cinema was the largest, other national cinemas such as Georgian, Kazakh, and Ukrainian played a decisive role for Soviet cinema as a whole. The Historical Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Cinema provides a rich tapestry of factual information, together with detailed critical assessments of individual artistic accomplishments. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of Russian and Soviet Cinema contains a chronology, an introduction, and a bibliography. The dictionary section has over 600 cross-referenced entries on directors, performers, cinematographers, composers, designers, producers, and studios.

Historical Dictionary of the Kennedy-Johnson Era
RM 507.70 RM 564.00
Kobo

The recent commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of John F. Kennedy's election as the thirty-fifth president of the United States serves as a reminder of a period of time that many Americans perceive as idyllic. Just as his election, despite a near-run thing, had instilled a pervasive sense of hope throughout the country, his assassination stunned the entire nation, scarring the psyche of a generation of Americans. More than half a century later, JFK continues to inspire debates about the effectiveness of the presidency, as well as his own political legacy, making the senator from Massachusetts the object of many enduring myths: that he would have been one of the country's greatest leaders had he lived, he would have kept the US out of a full-fledged Vietnam war, and that he was a martyr of right-wing assassins. His successor, Lyndon B. Johnson, who did get the US deeply involved in Vietnam while pursuing the social reforms of the Great Society at home and abroad, also casts a long shadow in the twenty-first century, as the nation continues to deal with poverty, racism, and social injustice. This second edition of Historical Dictionary of the Kennedy-Johnson Era covers its history through a chronology, an introductory essay, appendixes, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 300 cross-referenced entries on important personalities, including the president, his advisors, his family, his opponents, and his critics, as well as members of Congress, military leaders, and international leaders. This book is an excellent access point for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about John F. Kennedy.

Inherited Responsibility and Historical Reconciliation in East Asia
RM 218.70 RM 242.90
Kobo

Contemporary East Asian societies are still struggling with complex legacies of colonialism, war and domination. Years of Japanese imperial occupation followed by the Cold War have entrenched competing historical understandings of responsibility for past crimes in Korea, China, Japan and elsewhere in the region. In this context, even the impressive economic and cultural networks that have developed over the past sixty years have failed to secure peaceful coexistence and overcome lingering attitudes of distrust and misunderstanding in the region. This book examines the challenges of historical reconciliation in East Asia, and, in doing so, calls for a reimagining of how we understand both historical identity and responsibility. It suggests that by adopting a 'forward-looking' approach that eschews obsession with the past, in favour of a reflective and deliberative engagement with history, real progress can be made towards peaceful coexistence in East Asia. With chapters that focus on select experiences from East Asia, while simultaneously situating them within a wider comparative perspective, the contributors to this volume focus on the close relationship between reconciliation and 'inherited responsibility' and reveal the contested nature of both concepts. Finally, this volume suggests that historical reconciliation is essential for strengthening mutual trust between the states and people of East Asia, and suggests ways in which such divisive legacies of conflict can be overcome. Providing both an overview of the theoretical arguments surrounding reconciliation and inherited responsibility, alongside examples of these concepts from across East Asia, this book will be valuable to students and scholars interested in Asian politics, Asian history and international relations more broadly.

My Life in Historical Sense

This Poetry collection is from a larger amount of Poetry written over a period of 35 years. A number of the Poems as in the B-Section is inspired by keen insight into human history. Others Poems are celebrating human life in a beautiful and powerful Universe, but also describing the battle of life and death in nature. Others are particularly describing the interplay with humans in rough scenarios. Some of the history-inspired Poetry may fall into the Epic category, while others are more descriptive and communicating powerful scenes in all the categories of; Life and Nature; Love & Dreams; The nature and the Universe and Historical Constellations. A substantial part of this collection is of course triggered by inspiration only and leaves the reader to interpret and create his or hers pictures; for thus to fall into the definition of Art; as they will inevitably contribute by their own creation; in a similar way as painter leaves it up to the viewer to fulfill a smaller or larger part of the creation. My pen-name Jack Town is again being brought in as the name represents so many facets of writing that it could not be fully attributed to just one person. "A lot of human experiences and reactions can only become a mental asset if the one facing them sits down and work it out in poesy or prose." Tgjr

Historical Attitudes that have Shaped the Church's Use of the Arts
RM 31.00 RM 35.30
Kobo

Matthew Todd reflects on two millennia of religious action, reaction, and inaction with the arts. His composition mines the question, "What attitudes have shaped the Church's use of the arts?" The book briefly addresses a range of diverse attitudes encompassing the disciplines of theology, philosophy, sociology, humanities, aesthetics and psychology. A panorama of attitudes are winnowed out from historical epochs in the Ancient, Medieval, Reformational and Modern/Postmodern Church. What emerges is that the Church's attitudes towards the arts is mixed and deeply impacted by secular practices, renewal, philosophical movements, and theological interpretation. Two things can be stated at the outset: first, the Church's attitudes towards the arts have not been conceived in a vacuum. Secondly, as C.s. Lewis pointed out, when "Christian activities have been directed toward this present world. the arts (have) tended to flourish in its neighborhood." This is the first book I've seen that shows the diversity of attitudes that have shaped the Church's involvement in the arts to the present day. The Church's attitudes towards the arts have often been shaped by various movements and interpretations. Often today I find Christians largely unaware of how much Western culture has been shaped by Christian values. Matthew helps us get a more informed perspective.

The Historical Novel, Transnationalism, and the Postmodern Era
RM 218.70 RM 242.90
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.

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.
