Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Among a growing number of ethnographies of eastern Indonesia that deal with cosmology, exchange, and kinship, From a Shattered Sun is the first to address squarely issues originally broached by Edmund Leach and Claude Lévi-Strauss concerning the relation between hierarchy and equality in asymmetric systems of marriage. On the basis of extensive fieldwork in the Tamimbar islands, Susan McKinnon analyzes the simultaneous presence of both closed, asymmetric cycles and open, asymmetric pathways of alliance—of both egalitarian and hierarchical configurations. In addition, Tamimbarese society is marked by the existence of multiple, differentially valued forms of marriage, affiliation, and residence. Rather than seeing these various forms as analytically separable types, McKinnon demonstrates that it is only by viewing them as integrally related—in terms of culturally specific understandings of "houses," gender, and exchange—that one can perceive the processes through which hierarchy and equality are created.

Download or read book Shattered Sun written by John Gillette and published by Lulu.com. This book was released on 2015-08-28 with total page 44 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Nine hundred years ago, the Sun exploded. It shattered into millions of pieces, which swirled about the cosmos and eventually plummeted into the earth. On that day, the world was plunged into an eternal twilight. Without the Sun, life became dependent on its fractured remains, the Sun Shards, for survival. They instantly became the most precious resources on the face of the earth. If you had one, you had light, heat, and the ability to grow food. If you didn't, you died a cold, lonely death. Here's the funny thing though: Life goes on. People adapt, banners change, and the world keeps spinning. In this new age there is no day and no night; just a never-ending twilight. The world is still a place of gods and monsters, but now without the sun overhead these horrors have moved into the cities and alleyways to prey at all hours of the day. This world still needs heroes, someone to bring a light into the dark places and to make sure the boogeyman stays in his closet. Do you have what it takes to shine?

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How do you know what is real and what is not? Do you trust your mind enough to make the distinction? You might think you see the world clearly, but maybe theres nothing clear to see; maybe the world is, in fact, distorted, as illuminated in Visions through a Shattered Glass, thirty-one stories sure to make you question the everyday. Within, there are tales of dreamers who see things like crypts and crying mothers, unsure of the images validity. There are mysterious women, one dressed all in black, who serve to lure and confound. There are women who protect, as well, even from something so silly as a spider. Yet, are any of these happenings tangible, or has reality crumbled for this bevy of ill-fated men and women? Author James Beaumont weaves a tapestry of horror and fantasy. He rides a carousel of contrasting moods, sometimes fantastic, other times hauntingly nostalgic, but always unsettling and ominous. Are you prepared to step into this world of alternate reality where things that go bump in the night really do wait outside your door? Come inside and find out.

Book excerpt: ‘If you like a great psychological thriller, I promise you that you will love Shattered.’ Amazon Review. DECEPTION. GREED. VENGEANCE. BETRAYAL Forced to Northumberland to care for her dying Aunt, Charley Costin is determined to put aside childhood fears, and a twenty year feud, to prove her family wrong. Elizabeth Kane is not a witch, she is just an old lady, and Charley intends to make her estranged Aunt's last days as comfortable as possible. But doubts creep in when Elizabeth proves more work than Charley ever imagined. Intimidating and demanding, with violent hallucinations, episodes of paranoia, and an agenda of her own, Charley discovers dementia is much more than loss of memory, and her Aunt is as far from 'old lady' as she can get. Already on edge, Charley discovers Fortwind House hides not only a sinister presence, an unruly bell, and a study door that opens itself, but also a terrible secret. A secret that gardener Axl Maddox would kill to keep buried. A secret that Elizabeth is desperate to tell. As her Aunt's paranoia grows, an unnerved Charley questions just how long her Aunt has left, and the real reason she may have less time than she thinks. Disturbed, watched, and afraid, Charley feels out of her depth as over twenty years of deception, betrayal, vengeance, and bad blood rise to the surface with devastating consequences. What Charley discovers at Fortwind House will blow her world apart and challenge everything she has ever known. SHATTERED ‘From the 1st page, I was hooked, and kept finding spare minutes so I could sit and read Shattered, I so wanted it to end, but I didn't want it to finish!!’ Amazon review.

Summary Book Review Shattered Consensus by Patrick J. Michaels:
Download or read book Shattered Consensus written by Patrick J. Michaels and published by Rowman & Littlefield. This book was released on 2005 with total page 312 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Shattered Consensus: The True State of Global Warming should be required reading for any serious student of the issue of climate change. Edited and introduced by iconoclastic climatologist Patrick J. Michaels, Shattered Consensus demonstrates the remarkable disparities between so-called consensus documents on global warming, such as the reports of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and climate reality. Shattered Consensus consists of nine expert essays on global warming, covering the earth's temperature history and disparities between what has been predicted about climate change and what has actually been observed. The reader will discover substantial disconnections and new information not generally discussed in mainstream reports about climate science. For example, the oft-quoted statement that recent years are the warmest of the last millennium is now in serious doubt. Temperature changes observed through the atmosphere (not just at the surface) are clearly different than what has been projected to occur. Disparities between observed precipitation and the simulations of computer models can be several hundred percent. Shattered Consensus will surely shatter commonly-held opinions about global warming and leave the reader with serious questions about whether or not policies to 'fight' climate change are warranted at all.

He wrote on philosophy, ontology, poetry, plays, journalism, public lectures and debates, literary and art criticism, biography, Christian apologetics, and fiction, including fantasy and detective fiction. Chesterton is often referred to as the "prince of paradox". Whenever possible, Chesterton made his points with popular sayings, proverbs, and allegories—first carefully turning them inside out. Chesterton is well known for his reasoned apologetics and even some of those who disagree with him have recognized the universal appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man. Chesterton, as a political thinker, cast aspersions on both progressivism and conservatism, saying, "The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of the Conservatives is to prevent the mistakes from being corrected." Chesterton routinely referred to himself as an "orthodox" Christian, and came to identify such a position more and more with Catholicism, eventually converting to Roman Catholicism from High Church Anglicanism. George Bernard Shaw, Chesterton's "friendly enemy" said of him, "He was a man of colossal genius".
