Maailmaa parannetaan tuoppi kerrallaan Kuinka kävi, kun Pietari Suuri päätti tehdä venäläisistä oluenjuojia? Miksi Lutherin Saksassa olut veti rintamalinjat uskontokuntien välille, ja miksi maailmankuulu kirjailija, presidentti Václav Havel meni panimoon töihin? Entä kuinka kävi puolalaisten olutpuolueelle? Olut on aina ollut olennainen osa eurooppalaista historiaa. Kolpakolliset ovat liikuttaneet sotajoukkoja voittoon sekä rakentaneet kansojen välistä ystävyyttä, ja onpa tuoppi muuttanut monen merkkimiehen elämääkin. Tiesitkö esimerkiksi, ettei Louis Pasteurin mieä siintänyt bakteereista puhdas maitolasillinen vaan täydellinen tuoppi ranskalaista mallasjuomaa? Kuohuvaa historiaa tarinoi oluen ja historian yhteyksistä vivahteikkaan täyteläisesti, eikä tätä kirjaa ole syytä lukea kuivin suin. Kirjan jokaisessa luvussa on esitelty aiheeseen liittyvä olut. Huurteinen malja sille!
It's Christmas at The Shores. There's no snow yet, but there are so many lights that the tiny coastal village can be seen from space. One house isn't lit up. It's been dark for years. That's about to change, when Wild Rose Cottage comes to life, and death, again. The third in The Shores series that began with "Revenge of the Lobster Lover," followed by "Mind Over Mussels."
Charles Carter—a.k.a. Carter the Great—is a young master performer whose skill as an illusionist exceeds even that of the great Houdini. But nothing in his career has prepared Carter for the greatest stunt of all, which stars none other than President Warren G. Harding and which could end up costing Carter the reputation he has worked so hard to create. Filled with historical references that evoke the excesses and exuberance of Roaring Twenties, pre-Depression America, Carter Beats the Devil is a complex and illuminating story of one man's journey through a magical—and sometimes dangerous—world, where illusion is everything.
Tracing the evolution of contemporary body discourse Getting Under the Skin analyzes the tension between a fragmented and holistic body concept in performance art, popular culture, new media arts, and architecture. The body as an object of critical study dominates disciplines across the humanities to such an extent that a new discipline has emerged: body criticism. In Getting Under the Skin, Bernadette Wegenstein traces contemporary body discourse in philosophy and cultural studies to its roots in twentieth-century thought--showing how psychoanalysis, phenomenology, cognitive science, and feminist theory contributed to a new body concept--and studies the millennial body in performance art, popular culture, new media arts, and architecture. Wegenstein shows how the concept of bodily fragmentation has been in circulation since the sixteenth century's investigation of anatomy. The history of the body-in-pieces, she argues, is a history of a struggling relationship between two concepts of the body--as fragmented and as holistic. Wegenstein shows that by the twentieth century these two apparently contradictory movements were integrated; both fragmentation and holism, she argues, are indispensable modes of imagining and configuring the body. The history of the body, therefore, is a history of mediation; but it was not until the turn of the twenty-first century and the digital revolution that the body was best able to show its mediality. After examining key concepts in body criticism, Wegenstein looks at the body as "raw material" in twentieth-century performance art, medical techniques for visualizing the human body, and strategies in popular culture for "getting under the skin" with images of freely floating body parts.
Her analysis of current trends in architecture and new media art demonstrates the deep connection of body criticism to media criticism. In this approach to body criticism, the body no longer stands in for something else--the medium has become the body.
Get ready for the movie with this Hilarious Parody of the Best Selling novel Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. "When I think of my Gimp I always think of her head.
The artistry of it, to begin with. The very first time I saw her, it was the top of her head I saw. And there was something wonderful about it. She had what the German’s call Flachkopf. I’d know the top of her head anywhere.
