Through a Glass Darkly by Book Resume:

Suffering, the sacred, and the sublime are concepts that often surface in humanities research in an attempt to come to terms with what is challenging, troubling or impossible to represent. These intersecting concepts are used to mediate the gap between the spoken and the unspeakable, between experience and language, between body and spirit, between the immanent and the transcendent, and between the human and the divine. The twenty-five essays in Through a Glass Darkly: Suffering, the Sacred, and the Sublime in Literature and Theory, written by international scholars working in the fields of literary criticism, philosophy, and history, address the ways in which literature and theory have engaged with these three concepts and related concerns. The contributors analyze literary and theoretical texts from the medieval period to the postmodern age, from the works of Chaucer, Shakespeare, Donne, and Herbert to those of Endô Shûsaku, Alice Munro, Annie Dillard, Emmanuel Levinas, and Slavoj Žižek. This book will be of particular interest to scholars of religion and literature, philosophy and literature, aesthetic theory, and trauma studies.

Guilty by Jack G. Shaheen Book Resume:

“Nothing will be the same again.” Americans scarred by the experience of 9/11 often express this sentiment. But what remains the same, argues Jack Shaheen, is Hollywood’s stereotyping of Arabs. In his new book about films made after 9/11, Shaheen finds that nearly all of Hollywood’s post-9/11 films legitimize a view of Arabs as stereotyped villains and the use of Arabs and Muslims as shorthand for the “Enemy” or “Other.” Along with an examination of a hundred recent movies, Shaheen addresses the cultural issues at play since 9/11: the government’s public relations campaigns to win “hearts and minds” and the impact of 9/11 on citizens and on the imagination. He suggests that winning the “war on terror” would take shattering the centuries-old stereotypes of Arabs, and frames the solutions needed to begin to tackle the problem and to change the industry and culture at large.

Animal Visions by Susan Mary Pyke Book Resume:

Animal Visions considers how literature responds to the harms of anthropocentricism, working with Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights (1847) and various adaptations of this canonistic novel to show how posthumanist dream writing unsettles the privileging of the human species over other species. Two feminist and post-Freudian responses, Kathy Acker’s poem “Obsession” (1992) and Anne Carson’s “The Glass Essay” (1997) most strongly extend Brontë’s dream writing in this direction. Building on the trope of a ludic Cathy ghost who refuses the containment of logic and reason, these and other adaptations offer the gift of a radical peri-hysteria. This emotional excess is most clearly seen in Kate Bush’s music video “Wuthering Heights” (1978) and Peter Kosminsky’s film Wuthering Heights (1992). Such disturbances make space for a moor love that is particularly evident in Jane Urquhart’s novel Changing Heaven (1989) and, to a lesser extent Sylvia Plath’s poem, “Wuthering Heights” (1961). Brontë’s Wuthering Heights and its most productive afterings make space for co-affective relations between humans and other animal beings. Andrea Arnold’s film Wuthering Heights (2011) and Luis Buñuel’s Abismos de Pasión (1954) also highlight the rupturing split gaze of non-acting animals in their films. In all of these works depictions of intra-active and entangled responses between animals show the potential for dynamic and generative multispecies relations, where the human is one animal amongst the kin of the world.

Godfather by Gene D. Phillips Book Resume:

WITH A FOREWORD BY WALTER MURCH Gene Phillips blends biography, studio history, and film criticism to complete the most comprehensive work on Coppola ever written. The force behind such popular and critically acclaimed films as Apocalypse Now and the Godfather trilogy, Coppola has imprinted his distinct style on each of his movies and on the landscape of American popular culture. In Godfather, Phillips argues that Coppola has repeatedly bucked the Hollywood "factory system" in an attempt to create distinct films that reflect his own artistic vision -- often to the detriment of his career and finances. Phillips conducted interviews with the director and his colleagues and examined Coppola's production journals and screenplays. Phillips also reviewed rare copies of Coppola's student films, his early excursions into soft-core pornography, and his less celebrated productions such as One from the Heart and Tucker: The Man and His Dream. The result is the definitive assessment of one of Hollywood's most enduring and misunderstood mavericks.

Visual Cultures of Secrecy in Early Modern Europe by Timothy McCall,Sean Roberts Book Resume:

Secrets in all their variety permeated early modern Europe, from the whispers of ambassadors at court to the emphatically publicized books of home remedies that flew from presses and booksellers’ shops. This interdisciplinary volume draws on approaches from art history and cultural studies to investigate the manifestations of secrecy in printed books and drawings, staircases and narrative paintings, ecclesiastical furnishings and engravers’ tools. Topics include how patrons of art and architecture deployed secrets to construct meanings and distinguish audiences, and how artists and patrons manipulated the content and display of the subject matter of artworks to create an aura of exclusive access and privilege. Essays examine the ways in which popes and princes skillfully deployed secrets in works of art to maximize social control, and how artists, printers, and folk healers promoted their wares through the impression of valuable, mysterious knowledge. The authors contributing to the volume represent both established authorities in their field as well as emerging voices. This volume will have wide appeal for historians, art historians, and literary scholars, introducing readers to a fascinating and often unexplored component of early modern culture.

Camion Blanc by Nicolas Bénard Book Resume:

L'homo metallicus apparaît au Royaume-Uni au début des années 1980. Cette nouvelle figure de l'artiste métal, dotée d'un imaginaire expressif et haut en couleur, devient rapidement un mythe de même que la cible de critiques qui lui associent une série de clichés et la dépeignent sous une forme caricaturale. Cet essai vise à montrer comment cet homo metallicus, issu d'un imaginaire populaire renouvelé, symptomatique d'une mondialisation et d'une médiatisation naissantes, victime d'une propagande culturocentriste ou, au contraire, collégialement déifié, bref, comment ce drôle d'animal est un pur produit marketing. Une mythologie du contemporain qui, comme la plupart des mythologies, suscite l'exégèse et déclenche une myriade d'analyses. Résultat : peu à peu, le vernis s'effrite, les murs du temple se fissurent, les adorateurs s'épuisent, les courtisans s'ennuient. Le mythe s'effondre. Reste alors une image plus juste, conforme à la réalité des choses. Celle d'un homme (ou d'une femme) comme les autres.

Tremble by David Fiedler Book Resume:

When “post modernism” seems to be dominant world view; when interest in traditional religion is falling off; when far too many Adventist youth are simply walking away; what could possibly be wrong with getting people excited about “spirituality”? We can never say we weren’t warned. In 1903, Ellen White wrote an urgent letter about the “Alpha of Apostasy” and rushed it to the mail. Twenty-five hundred miles later, it arrived just in time to head off disaster—temporarily at least. She wrote of a dream in the night, a ship in the fog, and iceberg in the way. The vessel was damaged, but it survived the encounter because the Captain’s command was obeyed. Adventism survived her crisis, too, though at the cost of her right arm and the imposition of “the worst evil.” Yet, she assured us that the story wasn’t over. “The omega would follow in a little while. I trembled for our people.” Ellen G. White For nearly a century, the idea that the Seventh-day Adventist Church would ever again be troubled and tempted by pantheism strained credulity. It seemed absurd, unbelievable, ridiculous. Nevertheless, the Lord said another test was coming.

Dracula's Bedlam by Dacre Stoker,Chris McAuley,John Peel,Frederick Roseman Book Resume:

Dracula’s Bedlam is the second novel in the StokerVerse series, conceptualised and brought to life by writers Chris McAuley and Dacre Stoker, the great-grandnephew of Dracula author Bram Stoker. Guest writer John Peel also contributes to this excellent addition to the series. It is a mixed media presentation with both story content and graphic novel elements from Frederick B. Roseman, along with an introduction from author of the Horror series Deadknobs and Doomsticks and much-loved UK personality Joe Pasquale. Is there a place more enthralling than that of the Asylum? The insane lurk in the shadows with gibbering mouths and twisted minds… Dr. Seward's asylum is particularly interesting; a serial killer has his mind peeled back, a mysterious nurse walks the halls with a sweet smile and devious mind… and, of course, there's the enigmatic Mr. Renfield… Set between the cracks of the original Dracula novel, the StokerVerse series hopes to shed a little light into the dark areas which were not wholly explored by author Bram Stoker. Familiar figures from Dracula and original characters created specifically for the StokerVerse appear in these dark and twisted tales. Dracula’s Bedlam is the perfect read for a dark Halloween night… if you dare!

John’s Apocalypse by T. Craig Isaacs Book Resume:

Two things confound and confuse most of us: our dreams and the book of Revelation. However, people remain fascinated with both. This study tackles both subjects. The book of Revelation is a vision, a dream, yet it is most often interpreted as if it were a piece of consciously created literature. One should never attempt to decipher a dream or vision by purely rational methods; rather, the dream needs to be approached as poem, art, and mythic story. In this book you will learn a means of understanding your dreams and then apply this to approaching a renewed view of the book of Revelation.

Seducing the Boys Club by Nina DiSesa Book Resume:

Fact #1: Forty years after the feminist revolution, fewer than 2 percent of Fortune 1000 CEOs are women. Fact #2: The playing field is not level. Fact #3: You need to get over this. From the woman who became chairman of the flagship office of the largest advertising agency network in the world comes a wry reality check on how to get ahead and thrive in the testosterone-driven business arena. Nina DiSesa is a master communicator, a ceiling crasher, and one of the most successful women in the corporate world. She is also a big-time realist who has figured out that S&M–seduction and manipulation–is the secret to winning over (and surpassing) the big guys. In Seducing the Boys Club, DiSesa shows that you can, in fact, leave your male colleagues in the dust–but not by following the rules you learned in business school. By playing the roles of den mother, fraternity brother, little sister, and hard-nosed boss, DiSesa navigated the choppy, macho-minded waters of the workplace. All the “bad boys” in her life–and there are many–have provided a wealth of devilishly amusing stories and cautionary tales that DiSesa is only too happy to pass on. Ah, revenge can be sweet, but the truth is that she came to love those boys as much as they love her–which is the whole point. DiSesa asserts that women need to meld their feminine characteristics (nurturing, compassion, listening) with the traits of their male counterparts (competitiveness, decisiveness, combativeness) to expand their professional horizons. In Seducing the Boys Club, DiSesa shares her practical, outrageous, and even controversial maxims for making it, including: • Learn to appreciate men. Men like women who like them. • Remember that women are biologically wired to succeed. • If you want to make a name for yourself, find a mess and fix it. A secure and comfortable job only holds you back. • Don’t assume that men never listen. They listen like a dog does. • Don’t be a quiet achiever. • Act brave and you will look brave. • Screw the rules. Make up your own. Whether dead-on funny or deadly serious, DiSesa is always on her game, always on message, and absolutely on target as she arms women with the can-do confidence and no-compromises attitude they need to climb as high as their ambition can carry them–while keeping their standards impeccable and their integrity intact. Not for women only, this book should be read by men, too . . . though it won’t give them any defense against a woman who can truly seduce a boys club!

The fear of the unknown has caused us all with out the knowledge of truth to create an inner world that exists in our thoughts that leads us to live a life of willing ignorance. This reality block in our minds creates a false sense of security that is based in the material things of this world that can not talk, speak or hear. These are the idols we in a western world that have become the cymbals of achievements that we value as a reason for living. Have you ever thought where these gifts to create these natural phenomenons came from?

I am sure that when you read this book, the obvious signs will convince you of these realities, we all have been a willing participants in the ignorance that have led up to our present state in the world.
