Ritual and Ceremonial Buildings details the formation and historical development of ritual architecture, from the Confucian ritual concept to the sacrificial architecture of the Ming and Qing dynasties. The term "ritual architecture" is applied to buildings and structures constructed for sacrificial purposes, such as altars and temples. In feudal China, altars and temples were built according to strict traditions, and so naturally ritual buildings became an important part of China's ancient architecture. The first part of Ritual and Ceremonial Buildings traces ritual architecture as it developed from the Confucian philosophy that advocated the governing of the country by rites. In the second part, Sun Dazhang details these buildings with beautiful color photographs and explanatory captions, highlighting the artistic significance of the spectacular altars, temples and halls of ancient China. As Confucianism became a national philosophy, the sacrificial altars and temples for worship began to fall under the direct control of the government. Their magnificence today can very well be co...

Finding Faith Jon Guenther

Summary The congregation at Solid Rock Baptist Church is desperate to find their missing pastor, Joe Faith. Rachel Sloane, a cynical P.I. from Nashville, reluctantly accepts the gig even when the church elders tell her she was fulfilling God's purpose. She is, to say the least, skeptical as she sets out to fulfill her mission. But a trail of misdirection lands Sloane deep inside the nightmarish world of human trafficking. Cut off from any way to call for help, with a young, former prostitute as her only ally, Sloane must endure a cruel and inhumane existence at the hands of evil men. From the murky, despicable underworld of the U.S. sex trade to a hellish labor camp in the jungles of Guatemala, Sloane follows the trail of the enigmatic pastor. A trail that will force her to put faith in a God she doesn't believe in, and hope that she will be redeemed. Koehler Books 9781938467424 Pub Date: 1/1/14 $16.95/$17.95 Can.

The Drone Enigma Ron McManus

Summary Jake Palmer accepts an offer from a defense contractor and his former SEAL teammate to consult with the company on the death of an engineer assigned to the top secret Perseus Project-the development of the navigation and targeting systems for an experimental Navy drone. Two days into the case, Palmer finds Jansen shot dead in his office and vows to bring his killer to justice. What he discovers convinces him that both deaths are related to the project and that someone within the company is working with terrorists to seize control of the drone during a live fire test in Afghanistan.

Summary Imperial Mausoleums and Tombs takes up the art, form, and layout of Chinese imperial mausoleums and tombs, a key element of the Chinese architectural tradition. As Chinese society became more advanced, the Chinese burial tradition grew in complexity. From simple graves to the construction of magnificent imperial mausoleums, the form and design of imperial burial sites were influenced by contemporaneous social conditions, state power, techniques and artistry. Imperial mausoleums were often constructed to simulate imperial palaces, providing a record of the architecture and technology of their time. In addition to the sarcophagus, mausoleums contained carvings, sculptures, paintings, and calligraphy. As a result, sites for emperors' eternal rest became sacred art treasuries as well.

She was trained at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague under the aegis of Gerrit Kiljan and Paul Schuitema, who pioneered the "New Photography", based on Bauhaus principles -- as well as encouraging students to experiment with its role as a documentary medium. Her rigorous yet sensitive approach enabled Andriesse to produce images of extraordinary poetic power, while her versatile fashion, documentary, portrait and landscape photographs reveal her curiousity about her fellow human beings and sense of beauty in the world around her. She used her quick perception to capture everyday life, often emphasizing a specific aspect to lend strength to her compositions: cyclists pedalling into an oblong of sunlight on a cobbled street; the diaponal of a woman's bare legs stretched out on a beach, the sa...

Two years later he finished ORCA/M, which went on to become Apple Programmer's Workshop, the Apple-labeled development environment for the Apple IIGS. Born the same year as Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, Mike made the mistake of getting an education instead of getting rich. A slow learner, he graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1977 with a degree in Physics, earned an M.S. in Physics from the University of Denver, and was Working on a Ph.D. when he started making more money from his sideline software company than from the Air Force.

The PLA Navy Gao Xiaoxing

Summary The PLA Navy is a history of modern China's naval forces, combined with a technical description of the makeup, equipment and missions of the Navy. The book begins with the founding of the Navy, and relates initial successes in the battle for the Yijiangshan Islands. Further milestones round out the history: In the 1970s, the Navy began to widen their theater of operations away from the Chinese coast. In 1984, Chinese Naval vessels reached Antarctic waters for the first time. In 1989, the Chinese naval training ship Zhenghe sailed across the International Date Line and paid a visit to Hawaii. In 2008, two Chinese naval vessels performed escorts to the Gulf of Aden. All of these events are related, many with photographs. The process of the Navy's conversion from a collection of outdated vessels to a modern and world-class fleet is detailed, starting with the delivery of Soviet-built destroyers in the mid-1950s. Sections on the PLA Navy's organization, equipment, and missions round out the volume, which also includes 106 black and white photographs. The PLA Navy was written by military ...

Summary The Chinese Military Library volume The PLA Air Force tells the complete history of China's air force. In addition, the book provides detailed information on the PLAAF's composition, equipment, and peacetime missions. A separate section relates the history of the PLAAF's women pilots. The PLAAF was founded in 1949, shortly after the declaration of the People's Republic of China. But air combat in China has a much longer history, reaching back to the pre-revolutionary era. The Communist Party of China (CPC) first started training pilots with Nationalist Kuomintang (KMT) forces, and with the Soviets, in the 1920s. During World War II, with the Nationalists and the CPC cooperating to fight the Japanese, Communist troops again trained with and flew alongside KMT fliers. When the time came to found the PLAAF in 1949, the Communists had a reservoir of knowledge to draw on. The PLA Air Force recounts the story of China's air force from its founding: the early difficulties of training new pilots, the stunning successes against the US Air Force while flying substandard and captured equipment,...

Sexual abuse is prevalent and wide spread - in Western countries a quarter of women and more than ten percent of men have been sexually abused by adults before they reach the age of seventeen. Regardless of the high number of instances, speaking out about child sexual abuse remains taboo in Western societies. The shame surrounding child sexual abuse renders victims silent and revives their trauma. While the disturbing nature of abuse has been exposed in the media, the stories tend to either sensationalize the details or simply present cold and hard statistics--and both approaches have been detrimental to efforts in breaking the silence. In Unspoken, the photographer has taken a different approach to telling the survivor's stories, an approach guided by her own experience of surviving abuse, as w...

Is there a bustle in your hedgerow? Does it alarm you? Are you aware that it is just a Spring clean from the May Queen? Thankfully, for those whose hedgerows are alarmingly bustled, Led Zeppelin answered this existentially relevant question in the classic rock song Stairway to Heaven. In Benjamin Darling's new book Everything I Need to Know I learned From Led Zeppelin they, and other rockers, such as David Bowie, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and Chicago, answer many more imponderables through their songs, and select interviews. The classic rock bands of the 1970s and 80s provided newly minted aphorisms and freshly conceived maxims on the timeless topics of life, love and happiness, all this great advice is wittily presented and cleverly illustrated with children's primer/classic rock art mash-ups in Everything I Need to Know I learned From Led Zeppelin Author, Benjamin Darling came of age 'getting the Led out' in San Diego in the seventies and eighties.

As they developed over generations, traditional Chinese vernacular dwellings came to have a standardized form: a wooden-framed house surrounded by a court. The Chinese courtyard house is deeply embedded in Chinese culture and often serves as a source of inspiration for official architecture, such as palaces, official residences, temples, and mausoleums. Relatively unrestricted by formalities or regulation, dwellings could develop freely, resulting in a multiplicity of styles. Traditional vernacular designs began to disappear when western technical meth...

Shocking truths about your hidden desires in mating, dating and communicating. Use cautiously. Steven Dayan

Summary Beauty is raw, powerful, and often dangerous, but when refined, harnessed, and mastered, it can be incredibly influential. Just as there is a good reason why all humans find sugar to be sweet and a growling beast intimidating, there is an evolutionary logic to why our appearances allow us to communicate and manipulate each other at a subconscious level. Who you choose to mate, befriend, or work with often pivots on a few critical yet subliminal decisions made within a fraction of a second. The human brain has been evolving over 3.5 million years, and our thoughts, behaviors, and actions are rooted in a system that is evolutionary, adaptive, and unencumbered by political, social, or religious constraints. Evolution only cares about one thing: survival of our genes. Morgan James Publishing 9781614485865 Pub Date: 6/4/13 $14.95/$14.95 Can.

Whispers of Vivaldi A Tito Amato Mystery Beverle Graves Myers

Summary Venice, 1745-an age of reckless pleasures, playful artifice, and baroque excess. An accident has reduced Tito Amato's glorious singing voice to a husky croak. A tragedy-but also opportunity. Tito can reinvent himself as a director of his beloved Teatro San Marco, staging operas to claim Venice's fickle heart as he had as a singer. With the theater losing subscribers to a rival company headed by an unscrupulous impresario, San Marco's Maestro Torani charges Tito with locating the perfect opera to fill the seats in time for the opening of Carnival. Surprisingly, a second-rate composer provides the very thing-an opera so replete with gorgeous melodies it might well have been written by Antonio Vivaldi, Venice's greatest composer, dead these past four years. "Perhaps the Red Priest did write the opera," whispers the gossip snaking through coffeehouses and cafĂŠs. Even more disconcerting are the rumors swirling around Angeletto, a male soprano Tito imports from Naples to sing the lead. Is this exquisite being truly a castrato, or a female soprano engaging in a daring but lucrative masquer...

Summary Jesse Savorié stood out at the all-white 1960's Alabama school known as Jesse Rulam Elementary-not because he was dirt poor, or big, and not even because he was gifted in natural and supernatural ways. Jesse stood out because he was black in an all-white school, in a time when slavery was still believed and whites only mattered. The sheer evil meanness wrought by the people of the hick, red neck, Alabama town would have thwarted the plans of most humans. However, Jesse was no ordinary human. He was on a mission that was slowly revealed to him and those who were around him. He was faster, stronger, smarter, and especially, blessed. He used his mysterious abilities to help others and to teach hard lessons, the only lessons that some people can understand and learn from.

From His Life with Autism, Alex Answers All Your Questions Alex Olinkiewicz

Summary This unique book brings a depth of understanding of the analytical skills that 21-yr old Alex has brought to his own condition. As Alex says, "There are varying types of Asperger's and young people cannot all be squeezed into having the same diagnostic symptoms. But what they do have are some correlation to the symptoms laid out by Hans Asperger." ( Please note Asperger's may now be described as the lower end of the Autistic scale.) In his book, Alex takes each of eight symptoms and comments how these symptoms are pertinent in his life. In so doing, the reader will find similarities to those children with Asperger's that they know and will be able to reflect with new insights on what Alex is talking about. In addition to the above, Alex shares many experiences in his life that reflect his Asperger's condition from not being able to drive, social development, repetitions, panic situations, holidays, family, movies, relaxers, etc. Alex has augmented his insights with graphics that even more clearly clarify his Asperger's symptoms and sheds new ways of seeing the Asperger's condition.

Author Bio Meet Alex Olinkiewicz. If you live on Shelter Island, you probably already know him, at least casually. But until you sit down and talk with him, you may know little of his warmth, charm, intelligence and his self-awareness about coping with Asperger's syndrome and other peoples' reactions to it. The 21-year-old 2009 Shelter Island High School graduate has a subtle shyness about him that he somewhat masks with a self-deprecating sense of humor. Many of his classmates may have left the Island for college or jobs but you're likely to find Alex often alone at home, hunched over a computer dealing with graphics, one of the many talents this young author possesses. The book was written with the cooperation of Islander Dr. Richard O'Connell, a retired guidance counselor and author, who spent two years recording sessions with Alex, having them transcribed and then working with him to organize his thoughts into the book, for which Alex created the graphics. Unlike the scholarly tomes that have been written about autism and Asperger's syndrome, Alex's story is very personal and it paints a v...

The Maine Woods

Henry David Thoreau, Richard F Fleck

Summary Posthumously published in 1864, The Maine Woods depicts Henry David Thoreau's experiences in the forests of Maine, and expands on the author's transcendental theories on the relation of humanity to Nature. On Mount Katahdin, he faces a primal, untamed Nature. Katahdin is a place "not even scarred by man, but it was a specimen of what God saw fit to make this world." In Maine he comes in contact with "rocks, trees, wind and solid earth" as though he were witness to the creation itself. Of equal importance, The Maine Woods depicts Thoreau's contact with the American Indians and depicts his tribal education of learning the language, customs, and mores of the Penobscot people. Thoreau attempts to learn and speak the Abenaki language and becomes fascinated with its direct translation of natural phenomena as in the word sebamook-a river estuary that never loses is water despite having an outlet because it also has an inlet. The Maine Woods illustrates the author's deeper understanding of the complexities of the primal wilderness of uplifted rocky summits in Maine and provides the reader wi...

Author James Johnson covers everything from basic camera features to advanced photographic options. With this book as your guide, you'll learn to successfully use this powerful camera.

Author Bio When James (Jim) Johnson retired from a 25-year career as a software developer for IBM, he had already been working as a contract technical editor for Microsoft. After his retirement, technical editing and writing became his primary source of income to cover the cost of his "toys"-most of which were computer and photographic equipment. Jim's involvement with cameras began in the mid '50s when he needed to record the interior of caves in Kentucky. At the time, the greatest challenge was to provide adequate illumination, so he purchased a Leica 3F camera (which was the norm at that time) and experimented with numerous lighting sources. He was later able to add a nice piece of brass-and-glass that had been manufactured by Canon during the post-war occupation. That 100 mm telephoto was every bit as sharp and capable as the Leica lenses. Such began Jim's appreciation for Japanese camera equipment. Jim and his wife Heather live on the California coast in a home that overlooks the Morro Bay estuary. The coast, the bays, and the mountains combine to host a vast array of botanical subjects...

Summary After his hair-raising adventures in London, Sir Robert Carey has finally tracked down the Queen who is about to make a state visit to Oxford. But instead of giving the Courtier his much-needed warrant and fee for being Deputy Warden of the West March with Scotland, Her Majesty orders him to investigate the most dangerous cold case of her reign - the mysterious death in 1560 of Amy Dudley, nĂŠe Robsart, unloved wife of Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester.

Since the Queen is one of the most obvious suspects in arranging Amy's murder, Carey is deeply uneasy with his sleuthing role, the more so as his father, Elizabeth's cousin from the wrong side of the blanket, is clearly involved.

Split Image Ron Faust

Summary When a petty argument with an arrogant stranger deep in a Wisconsin forest over who killed a deer escalates to murder, playwright Andrew Neville's life becomes a tangled web of deceit-and self-deception. Back in hometown Chicago, Neville attends the funeral of the man he's murdered and meets his widow, Claudia, and her 3-year-old son. Neville gradually insinuates himself into the widow's confidence and conceives a plan to seize the victim's life-his wife, his son, his work, his wealth, and even his persona and appearance. Neville will become he man he killed. It appears nothing can stop him-except the obnoxious Chicago PI who's determined to prove that Neville and Claudia murdered her husband together.

Pre-Raphaelites Robert de la Sizeranne

Summary In Victorian England, with the country swept up in the Industrial Revolution, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, close to William Morris' Arts and Crafts movement, yearned for a return to bygone values. Wishing to revive the pure and noble forms of the Italian Renaissance, the major painters of the circle such as John Everett Millais, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Edward Burne-Jones, in opposition to the academicism of the time, favored realism and biblical themes over the affected canons of the 19th century. This work, with its captivating text and rich illustrations, describes with enthusiasm this singular movement which notably inspired the followers of Art Nouveau and Symbolism.

Opium

Donald Wigal

Summary While the 20th century was one long war for control of the world's oil supplies, opium was a key strategic raw material during the four preceding centuries. Opium consumption dates back to Ancient Egypt. Initially a useful pharmaceutical product called laudanum; it quickly became popular in Britain. It then became the basis for trade with isolationist China as soon as the Opium Wars obtained trading rights for Western companies and the Chinese began smoking it in industrial quantities. This book offers a tastefully illustrated history of this toxic substance, its paraphernalia, and the era surrounding it.

Julius Mordecai Pincas (1885-1930) was a Bulgarian who set out on a wild and adventurous journey to Vienna, the Habsburg capital. After art school, he set off for Munich and Berlin before settling down in Paris in 1905 and painting under the name of Pascin. Over 1907 to 1930, Pascin exhibited in Berlin, Paris, and New York at fairs such as the 1911 Berlin Secession in 1911 and the 1913 IndepĂŠndants and Autumn salons as well as at Bernheim and other leading private galleries. Indeed, he spent most of his time travelling across Algeria, Cuba, Portugal, Spain, Tunisia, and the USA where he gained citizenship in 1920. He hanged himself on June 2, 1930, only a year before major retrospective exhibitions of his works in New York and Paris. Today, Pascin still stands out as a "bad boy". His canvases are as turbulent as his lifestyle; full of parties and places the affluent patronize but never mention in polite society - those brothels and cabarets where scantily clad ladies hosted the pillars of society. Pascin was as brilliant at the easel as the drawing board but was all too easily overlo...

Summary A newly minted graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School in 1890, Dr. Thomas Parks heads to the big timber country of Puget Sound to practice trauma medicine. An hour after stepping off the boat, he's nearly crushed to death by a less-than-surefooted mule, and finds himself a patient rather than a physician. As he convalesces, he discovers that his host, an aging and venerable physician friend of his father's, is hosting an elaborate medical scam, selling worthless concoctions nationwide, with enormous sales. Besides doing his best to treat patients while he himself hobbles about with one functioning eye, one hand, and one leg, Dr. Thomas must decide whether or not to expose the old family friend. Things become even more complicated when his host's daughter, Alvi, falls in love with Thomas. Exposing the scam would destroy her father.

Neither is likely when he agrees to help hotshot Florida attorney Thomas Petrie track down a slick con man who's swindled a consortium of well-to-do Paradise Key clients out of $22 million. But the charismatic Victor Trebuchet and his sexy partner in crime are a lot more dangerous than anyone imagined. And the silken counter-sting set up in an Italian villa to snare the couple may end up trapping Shaw instead. With that much money on the line, anyone is liable to betray anyone. But in the meantime, Shaw's living the high life and he's in way over his head. Soon he may find himself doing hard time-or worse-in a watery grave at the bottom of Bell Harbor.

Dan Shaw has been practicing law only four months and he's already burned out. Add the fact that he's just lost his longtime girlfriend and the cops are scouring his dubious past, and it's no wonder that Shaw decides to set sail for the summer and get away from it all. But even alone in the middle of the sea, trouble finds him-in the enticing form of Katherine Adams. When Shaw hauls her out of the ocean, she's naked, nearly drowned, and has little memory as to how she got that way. But the real story is even more twisted. Her husband, Cesar Cardinal, is a diplomat, a playboy, and a high-stakes gambler. He's feigned his wife's suicide at sea and taken their young son to a heavily armed compound in the Dominican Republic, where U.S. law can't touch him. But that's not going to stop Shaw, who can't deny his feelings for Katherine. From Bell Harbor to Santo Domingo, he's baiting a trap with his own life . . . and there's no telling what he'll catch.

Panthers Play for Keeps A Pru Marlowe Pet Mystery Clea Simon

Summary When Pru Marlowe takes a dog for a walk, she doesn't expect to find a body. But Spot, a service dog in training, has too good a nose not to lead her to the remains of the beautiful young woman, and despite her own best instincts, Pru can't avoid getting involved. The young woman seems to have been mauled by a wild cat - and Pru knows there have been no pumas in the Berkshire woods for years. And while Wallis, Pru's curmudgeonly tabby, seems fixated on the idea of a killer cat, Spot has been sending strange signals to Pru's own heightened senses, suggesting that the violent death was something more than a tragic accident. As motives multiply, a cougar of a different sort sets her eyes on Pru's sometime lover, and another woman disappears. With panther panic growing, Pru may have to put aside her own issues - and her own ideas of domesticity - to solve a savage mystery.

Germany's critically acclaimed Georg Buchner's beloved play about love, humor, and humanity adapted by one of Switzerland's most honored writers brings this tremendous piece of literature to young audiences as never before. In a comedy of errors, two young people, Leonce of Popo and Princess Lena of Pipi, are destined to make their peace in an arranged marriage. Horrified at the thought of not knowing their betrothed, they flee, but upon a chance meeting they are love struck. Overwhelmed with emotion, Lena departs leaving Leonce distraught. But the King insists that a wedding take place-royals or no royals-for the people who have waited tirelessly to see a ceremony. Cloaked in masks two young people are brought to the altar-introduced as world famous robots-an effigy of a royal wedding. But when the masks are removed Leonce and Lena are euphoric to see each other's identities. It's a joyful affair and the King retires, passing the reigning power to Leonce. Leonce turns the kingdom into a theatre and bans all clocks and calendars.

Author Bio Karl Georg Buchner (1813 -1837) was a German dramatist and writer. Buchner's work is tremendously respected in Germany. His potential for greatness has been compared to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe and Friedrich Schiller. Jurg Amann (1947-2013) is one of Switzerland's most honored writers. He started his writing career with a study of Franz Kafka's works, and has also worked as a journalist and a dramaturge at the main theater of Zurich. Lisbeth Zwerger was born in Vienna, where she later studied at the Academy of Art. Internationally renowned as one of the finest contemporary illustrators of children's literature, Zwerger chose "The Gift of the Magi" as the first American story she illustrated.

FUTURE HORIZONS

Hope for the Violently Aggressive Child New Diagnoses and Treatments that Work Ralph Ankenman

Summary Dr. Ralph Ankenman presents new diagnoses and treatment options for children who have severe disruptive meltdowns at home or school. Referred to as Immature Adrenaline Systems Overreactivity (IASO), this approach is based on the relationship between aggression and the body's adrenaline systems. Therefore IASO does not require psychotropic drugs. Instead, IASO reduces or eliminates psychotropic drugs from a child's regimen. IASO stops episodes of violence and aggression in patients with autism, with bipolar disorder, with developmental disabilities and also many with no mental health diagnosis at all. Standard psychotropic drugs often do not fully resolve these behaviors and lead to unnecessary side effects. A companion website of the same name as this book enables caregivers and parents to discuss and share tips about this new approach, called Immature Adrenaline Systems Overreactivity (IASO).

Author Bio Dr. Ralph Ankenman has treated hundreds of patients with violent and aggressive behavior problems. Over time, he discovered that adrenaline-acting medicines provided many patients with safer and more effective treatment than the commonly prescribed psychiatric medicines. Dr. Ankenman spent over twenty years as Director of the Special Psychiatric Unit at Madison County Hospital in London, Ohio, and he has consulted extensively for mental health clinics, state developmental centers, and community group homes. After closing his practice in 2008, he has dedicated his time to writing and speaking about the therapeutic potential of adrenaline-acting medications.

Changing the Game

The Parent's Guide to Raising Happy, High Performing Athletes, and Giving Youth Sports Back to our Kids John O'Sullivan

Summary Conventional wisdom holds that youth sports are a positive experience for our children. Unfortunately, 70% of kids drop out of organized athletics by the age of 13. Most of these children quit because our youth sports culture has taken the 'play' out of 'play ball.' A shift in values, the rise of expensive youth sports models, and the myth of abundant athletic scholarships has led parents and coaches to focus on wins instead of enjoyment, and trophies at the expense of development. As a result, every day increasing numbers of children quit playing sports that are no longer enjoyable. Conventional wisdom is wrong.

Planning For Babies' Health and Happiness Vintage Parenting Advice for New Moms and Dads The Enthusiast

Summary As long as there has been motherhood there has been baby advice, some good, some bad, most of it unsolicited. The authors of Planning for Babies Health and Happiness, having patiently sifted through history's ample record of child rearing information, new baby observations and parenting tips, present for new mothers and fathers the best, and funniest of that advice. Many of the remarks in the book are eminently practical such as this one, circa 1960, "if you force food on them, it may bounce back." Much of the advice in Planning for Babies Health and Happiness is oddly both humorous and serious (much like child rearing itself,) such as these words of wisdom from Elinor Goulding Smith "It sometimes happens, even in the best of families, that a baby is born. This is not necessarily cause for alarm. The important thing is to keep your wits about you and borrow some money." And some other of the suggestions in Planning for Babies Health and Happiness can be seen as amusingly old fashioned or downright provocative, depending on your gender or gestation, such as this gem from 1968 "T...
