Tea Lall Katki


„Katki” räägib loo keskealisest pisut eraklikust Ragnest, kes on sattunud oma elus madalseisu. Endas selgusele jõudmiseks üürib ta vana maja ja sukeldub seal iseenese valusasse minevikku. Ent maja peidab oma seinte vahel üht traagilist lugu. Juhuse tahtel tuleb aastaid saladuses hoitud lugu päevavalgele ja see muudab kõigi asjaosaliste elu. Lahti hargnevad inimeste saatused, põimuvad minevik ja tänapäev ning ootamatult seisab Ragne silmitsi keerulise ülesandega… „Vaid väikeseks viivuks oleks justkui midagi läigatanud taskulambi valgusvihus. Ragne sirutas käe ettevaatlikult purunenud laudade vahele ja tundis, kuidas külm metall tema kätt puudutas. Jah, just see puudutas tema kätt, mitte vastupidi. Tasapisi tõmbas ta külma tundmatut eset enda poole, kuni nägi, et see on metallist käsitöökarp, vana ja roostetanud.” „Katki” autor Tea Lall on sündinud 1967. aastal Jõgeval. Ta töötab Jõgeva linnaraamatukogus. „Katki” on tema esimene romaan, mis võitis kirjastuse Tänapäev 2015. aasta romaanivõistlusel III koha.

Alan Charles Kors D'Holbach's Coterie. An Enlightenment in Paris


Students of the Enlightenment have long assumed that the major movement towards atheism in the Ancien Régime was centered in the circle of intellectuals who met at the home of Baron d'Holbach during the last half of the eighteenth century. This major critical study shows, contrary to the accepted views, that in fact, atheism was not the common bond of a majority of the members and that, far from being alienated figures, most of the members were privileged and publicly successful citizens devoted to peaceful and gradual reform. Alan Charles Kors determines the coterie's membership and discovers it to have been a diverse assemblage of philosophes, men of letters, and scientists. Analyzing the thought and behavior of those members who lived past 1789, the author argues that the hostility to the Revolution expressed by the coterie's survivors was fully consistent with their world view.Originally published in 1976.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Eesti Kirjanike Liidu 2015. aasta romaanivõistlusel äramärgitud teos „Ära armasta mind enam“ on aktuaalse teemapüstitusega nüüdisaegsest Eesti elust kõnelev romaan, milles kolme teismelise pilgu läbi kajastuvad tänased pereprobleemid: ajal, mil isad-emad lähevad Soome tööle ja perekonnad lagunevad, jäävad lapsed üksinda ning on sunnitud vara täiskasvanuks saama. Raamatus kirjeldatakse kolme sõbra, klassikaaslase elu, kelle vanemad on elu hammasrataste vahele jäänud. Nad püüavad üksteist toetada ja sõpradele abiks olla, üritades ema sotsiaaltöötaja tulekuks kaineks turgutada või põgenedes kodust oma lemmikpaika, mahajäetud üksildasse hoonesse, kust nad leiavad ühe kummalise kirja.

The intention here is to examine the traumatic experience of the partition and its effect on the human beings.

It attempts to bring out a record how human disaster and the pitiable condition have been taken place during the gruesome period of the partition.The book covers Chaman Nahal’s Azadi (1975) and Khushwant Singh’s Train to Pakistan (1956), who occupies an important place in Indian English novels. Both Chaman Nahal and Khushwant Singh are known for their outstanding creation of Indian fictions which based on the theme of partition.

And in the novella, “Into the Fire,” Mickelbury follows the life of a southern family as they strive for success amidst the violence and uncertainty of 1960s Detroit. In beautiful and exacting prose, Mickelbury gives voice to an often-overlooked coterie of women in this superb collection of fiction.

Dave Lewis Layer Cake


Dave Lewis' poetry is honest and direct. Each word is effective and easily understood. Unlike so many others today, he writes from the heart and soul, from raw emotion; he has drawn on his wide ranging knowledge and experience to evolve a style, an elevated poetic diction, which eschews artifice and ornate language. To do otherwise, to court obscurity, to write for just a small coterie, would be for him to miss the mark.A true son of his native South Wales Valleys, his work moves from the local, to the national, to the international; he aspires to a universal discourse, beyond the here and now, and beyond class, or localness, or country.This excellent collection of Dave Lewis' work is highly recommended - John Evans.

Francoise Le Marchand Florine and Boca


Françoise le Marchand deserves to be reckoned a significant, if slightly shadowy, figure in the revival of contes de fées in 1730s and 1740s France.It is not obvious why either of the two novellas translated here, Florine (1713) and Boca (1735) had to be published illicitly, but it undoubtedly reflects the fact that the genre was effectively under a royal ban in the aftermath of the scandal that had caused Louis XIV to break up the coterie of female writers who pioneered it. Le Marchand could not have been unaware of the fact that the scandal involved allegations of lesbianism, and the two works presented here contain odd features, which might not be unconnected with that context. While a little eccentric in their construction, both works stand out for their imaginative imagery.

The present study entitled “Tree-crop interaction studies in Plum (Prunus domestica L.) Based Agroforestry System in Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh” have revealed that field crop performed poorly under agrihorticulture system in comparison to pure crops. The studies have further indicated that plum compete strongly with maize for moisture, nutrients and other resources. Plum suppressed crop growth and productivity significantly on north side and closer distance from the tree row. It is further deduced from the studies that soil fertility status was higher under agrihorticulture system than sole cropping. Nutrient availability was more at closer distance. The effect of direction on available nutrients was statistically non-significant. Addition of nutrients was found higher in agrihorticulture system than sole cropping. The removal of nutrients from different harvested components was higher in agrihorticulture system than sole cropping. Among nutrient elements studied the pattern of removal was: N > K > P. The phosphorus was depleted more in both the systems and showed net loss whereas; N and K have shown net gain.

Henry Purcell: The Indian Queen – Peter Sellars’ New Version (2 DVD)


“What’s incredible about this piece is that it is like Stravinsky – in this radical exciting way in which theatre, dance, music and visual art all combine – but they don’t become a soup called ‘opera’ – they are a salad, a cold dish where you still taste every ingredient. These ingredients are always in dialogue with each other, they don’t just become one thing – the famous melting pot – they remain interesting and keep their own identities. You receive the story from all these different angles – sometimes music expresses something better than anything in the world, other things you feel because of a colour, or a shape, it’s a gesture, or a look, or sometimes its listening to a story and seeing that story in your mind. For Purcell in 17th century London, all of these forms of story-telling were exciting.” Peter Sellars.

Bill Jackson The Only Kid on the Carnival. An Extraordinary Childhood


During that wonderful golden age of local children's television, many talented people pooled their skills to enthrall and edify the impressionable, appreciative viewers. Yet with no disrespect intended toward any of the others, one person stood out in his ability to spin gold out of straw: Bill Jackson. Bill's legion of fans still cherish his amazing adventures with the memorable puppet characters that sprung from his fertile imagination on programs such as Cartoon Town, The BJ and Dirty Dragon Show, and Gigglesnort Hotel. These programs remain as fresh and entertaining today as they did when they were first broadcast, and belie their meager budgets and restrictive production schedules, thanks to Bill's artistic integrity and his coterie of hard-working crew members. Now, Bill steps out from behind his familiar TV persona to reveal a poignant personal journey filled with struggles, heartaches, and triumphs. The Only Kid on the Carnival chronicles the indomitable spirit of a young man who became one of television's most creative and gifted talents, and does so in a boldly engaging manner that touches the heart and the soul.As always, Bill Jackson does not disappoint his audience.Ted Okuda, "The Golden Age of Chicago Children's Television"

Rasmus Kleis Nielsen Ground Wars. Personalized Communication in Political Campaigns


Political campaigns today are won or lost in the so-called ground war--the strategic deployment of teams of staffers, volunteers, and paid part-timers who work the phones and canvass block by block, house by house, voter by voter. Ground Wars provides an in-depth ethnographic portrait of two such campaigns, New Jersey Democrat Linda Stender's and that of Democratic Congressman Jim Himes of Connecticut, who both ran for Congress in 2008. Rasmus Kleis Nielsen examines how American political operatives use "personalized political communication" to engage with the electorate, and weighs the implications of ground war tactics for how we understand political campaigns and what it means to participate in them. He shows how ground wars are waged using resources well beyond those of a given candidate and their staff. These include allied interest groups and civic associations, party-provided technical infrastructures that utilize large databases with detailed individual-level information for targeting voters, and armies of dedicated volunteers and paid part-timers. Nielsen challenges the notion that political communication in America must be tightly scripted, controlled, and conducted by a select coterie of professionals. Yet he also quashes the romantic idea that canvassing is a purer form of grassroots politics. In today's political ground wars, Nielsen demonstrates, even the most ordinary-seeming volunteer knocking at your door is backed up by high-tech targeting te...

Peter Brooks The Novel of Worldliness. Crebillon, Marivaux, Laclos, Stendhal


Contending that a search for "realism" distorts the writing of Crébillon, Marivaux, Laclos, and Stendahl, Peter Brooks considers their novels with reference to the manner in which the characters explore their worth and pursue their own systems of relationships. The novels discussed are used as examples of the fictional exploitation of the drama inherent in man's social existence and the encounters of personal styles within the framework and code provided by a coterie which is an object of conscious cultivation for its own sake. The author gives detailed readings of the four authors' works and moves backward to consider the seventeenth-century moralistes and the drawing rooms in which literary forms applied to social man were eloquently elaborated.Originally published in 1969.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

This two-volume collection assembles all the known tales of the fays published by Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, Baronne d’Aulnoy (1651-1705).From the early 1690s onwards, Madame d’Aulnoy was an active member of a literary salon where she and the Comtesse de Murat became the most prolific contributors to the new genre of the contes de fees, which they helped invent, shape and develop. Like almost all of the other members of her coterie, she became a renegade female aristocrat writing tales for the select consumption of other renegade female aristocrats about a world the corrupt glamour of which they understood only too well, with a depth of sarcasm that the innocent could not be expected to comprehend.One should regard Madame d’Aulnoy and the Comtesse de Murat as significant writers of Decadent fantasy, and one wonders what they might have done had they been allowed to continue with their work. Given that both had extraordinary imaginative range, it is hard to imagine that they would have run out of inspiration, had they not been violently stopped in their tracks. We have to be grateful that they contrived to publish as much as they did during their brief window of opportunity, leaving behind fugitive material that could be recovered once the worst of the repression had blown over.Considered separately Madame d’Aulnoy and the Comtesse de Murat were great writers of imaginative fiction, but as a competitive collective, they are unique in literary history, and it is as...

Boyd Cable Grapes of wrath


Boyd Cable was pseudonym of Ernest Andrew Ewart (1878-1943). He was an English author who migrated to Australia. His other works - all written under the pseudonym 'Boyd Cable' - include books on economics, shipping and military history, including for example, Doing Their Bit: War Work at Home (1916), British Battles of Destiny (1926) and A Hundred Year History of the P. & O. (1937).A par written by Narrung" and published in Smith's Weekly in 1919 provides a brief insight into Ewart and his alter ego:Boyd Cable is not a native-born Australian. He lived here long enough to admit, when I knew him in 1911-12, that Australia was the best of lands. None of his published works have ever disclosed his real name - Ernest Ewart. A great pal of the late Samuel Locke, he was a member of a little coterie which spent many a pleasant Sunday cruising round the harbour bays. Ewart, who had seen service in South Africa, had very strong views about the menace of European militarism. There is no reason to grudge "Boyd Cable" his local success as a "best-seller." Most of his books are worth attention, and in the "hush" days of 1915-16 he gave us many secrets without straining the censorship to betrayal. Besides few people know that he was ever in Australia (5 July 1919, p.3). (austlit.edu.au)

Michael Supe Granda It Shined. The Saga of the Ozark Mountain Daredevils


As the turbulent 60's began to fade into the calmer 70's, a coterie of young singers, songwriters, musicians, artists, and poets began to congregate, musically on the stage of The New Bijou Theater - the Springfield, Missouri nightclub that would become the loose-knit group's home. What started as an informal weekly gathering, quickly morphed into a formal band. Dubbed the Family Tree, they became a favorite of the local counter-culture, as well as a continuation of the tradition-rich, Springfield music scene - which, until recently, included the Ozark Jubilee (the nation's first televised country music show). Though unprofitable at the time, they stuck to their guns and their original songs. When a rough tape of an early Bijou gig caught the ear of music mogul, John Hammond, it culminated in a 26-song studio demo, which caught the ear of A and M executive, David Anderle. The group signed with the label, changed their name to its present moniker, and whisked off to London to record their debut album under the tutelage of Glyn Johns. The album contained "If You Want to Get to Heaven". Their subsequent album, recorded in rural Missouri, contained "Jackie Blue". Both songs remain staples on 'classic rock' radio. By the early 80's, the Ozark Mountain Daredevils found themselves right where the Family Tree had stood a decade before - in Springfield with no record deal. They did, though, find themselves with legions of loyal fans around t...
