READING: In crossing Togril Vloth, the ruthless leader of Teranor's most powerful thieves' guild, bounty huntress Argentia Dasani has made a dangerous mistake. Now she is learning that the Guildmaster's memory is long-and that the reach of his vengeance is longer still. After failing to kill Argentia, Vloth has sent twin assassins with a cunning plan: abduct her butler, Ikabod, as bait in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. Playing not only for her own life but Ikabod's as well, Argentia teams up with a very unlikely group of allies to take the fight to Vloth and his minions. As the desperate chase to rescue Ikabod leads from the streets of Argo through the sewers of Telarban to the Ice Reaches of Frijd, one thing becomes all too clear: not everyone who runs the Guildmaster's gauntlet will live to see its end.

Langs de rivier de Missouri trekt de 36-jarige avonturier Hugh Glass met een groep pelsjagers een onbekend en zeer gevaarlijk gebied in. Glass ondervindt dit gevaar aan den lijve wanneer hij op brute wijze wordt aangevallen door een grizzlybeer. Dagenlang balanceert hij op het randje van de dood. Zijn medereizigers houden het voor gezien: ze stelen zijn wapens en laten Glass alleen in de wildernis achter. De woede om deze laffe daad geeft de stervende man nieuwe kracht en hij zweert wraak. In de maanden die volgen onderneemt Glass - alleen en ongewapend - een onvoorstelbare tocht van bijna 5000 kilometer door de onherbergzame Amerikaanse wildernis, voortgedreven door de drang naar vergelding. De spookverschijning is een avonturenthriller over verraad en wraak, gebaseerd op een waargebeurde geschiedenis. Michael Punke is de Amerikaanse ambassadeur en permanent vertegenwoordiger bij de Wereldhandelsorganisatie in Genève. Hij groeide op in Wyoming, vlak bij de route die Hugh Glass aflegde.

Natira, a powerful Collector infused with Judas's blood, is on the verge of finding the last of the Nistarim. To destroy them all in one master stroke, he must find the Nazarene's Crown of Thorns which is believed to be buried near Jerusalem. But the Nistarim have a potent weapon of their own, a boy who carries immortal blood. He has been hiding and waiting until now, when both sides collide in a battle of biblical proportions at Israel's historic Valley of Bones.

READING: This study interrogates a series of utopian projections that have informed Portuguese and Luso-African letters and culture since the Renaissance. Concentrating on three crucial historical moments – Portugal's tenuous hegemony in the Asian seas in the 16th century, the collapse of its colonial empire in the mid-1970s, and finally, the post-independence period of re-evaluating nationalisms in Africa – the study examines the familiar “long narrative” which casts the Portuguese Discoveries as an inaugural and enabling event in Europe's conquest of the world.

The Publisher Twayne Pub
Release Date1994
Genre History
Pages 181
ISBN UOM:39015032228374
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: In this beautifully crafted new entry in Twayne's English Authors Series, Michael J. Curley sets out to instruct the nonspecialist in the events of Geoffrey's career, the techniques governing his three known works - the History, The Prophecies of Merlin, and The Life of Merlin-, and Geoffrey's enduring appeal as commentator on the human condition. Geoffrey's characters "are driven by passion, greed, rivalry, a thirst for glory and adventure, a restless spirit, and a consciousness of their origins," Curley asserts in his preface; "Above all, they are imbued with a sense of their own autonomy." In the five chapters that follow, Curley provides cogent biographical and background information, treats each of Geoffrey's works, and addresses the many issues scholars have raised about the writer.

The Book Alterations of State
The Author Richard McCoy
The Publisher Columbia University Press
Release Date2002-07-03
Genre History
Pages 192
ISBN 0231501072
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Traditional notions of sacred kingship became both more grandiose and more problematic during England's turbulent sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The reformation launched by Henry VIII and his claims for royal supremacy and divine right rule led to the suppression of the Mass, as the host and crucifix were overshadowed by royal iconography and pageantry. These changes began a religious controversy in England that would lead to civil war, regicide, restoration, and ultimately revolution. Richard McCoy shows that, amid these sometimes cataclysmic Alterations of State, writers like John Skelton, Shakespeare, John Milton, and Andrew Marvell grappled with the idea of kingship and its symbolic and substantive power. Their artistic representations of the crown reveal the passion and ambivalence with which the English viewed their royal leaders. While these writers differed on the fundamental questions of the day—Skelton was a staunch defender of the English monarchy and traditional religion, Milton was a radical opponent of both, and Shakespeare and Marvell were more equivocal—they shared an abiding fascination with the royal presence or, sometimes more tellingly, the royal absence. Ranging from regicides real and imagined—with the very real specter of the slain King Charles I haunting the country like a revenant of the king's ghost in Shakespeare's Hamlet—from the royal sepulcher at Westminster Abbey to Peter Paul Reubens's Apotheosis of King James at Whitehall, and from the Elizabethan compromise to the Glorious Revolution, McCoy plumbs the depths of English attitudes toward the king, the state, and the very idea of holiness. He reveals how older notions of sacred kingship expanded during the political and religious crises that transformed the English nation, and helps us understand why the conflicting emotions engendered by this expansion have proven so persistent.


The Book Love and Liberation
The Author Sarah H. Jacoby
The Publisher Columbia University Press
Release Date2014-10-14
Genre History
Pages 432
ISBN 9780231519533
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Love and Liberation reads the autobiographical and biographical writings of one of the few Tibetan Buddhist women to record the story of her life. Sera Khandro Künzang Dekyong Chönyi Wangmo (also called Dewé Dorjé, 1892–1940) was extraordinary not only for achieving religious mastery as a Tibetan Buddhist visionary and guru to many lamas, monastics, and laity in the Golok region of eastern Tibet, but also for her candor. This book listens to Sera Khandro's conversations with land deities, dakinis, bodhisattvas, lamas, and fellow religious community members whose voices interweave with her own to narrate what is a story of both love between Sera Khandro and her guru, Drimé Özer, and spiritual liberation. Sarah H. Jacoby's analysis focuses on the status of the female body in Sera Khandro's texts, the virtue of celibacy versus the expediency of sexuality for religious purposes, and the difference between profane lust and sacred love between male and female tantric partners. Her findings add new dimensions to our understanding of Tibetan Buddhist consort practices, complicating standard scriptural presentations of male subject and female aide. Sera Khandro depicts herself and Drimé Özer as inseparable embodiments of insight and method that together form the Vajrayana Buddhist vision of complete buddhahood. By advancing this complementary sacred partnership, Sera Khandro carved a place for herself as a female virtuoso in the male-dominated sphere of early twentieth-century Tibetan religion.
