Kurz vor ihrer Hinrichtung wird Yelena ein außergewöhnliches Angebot gemacht: Sie bekommt das beste Essen, eigene Gemächer im Schloß - und riskiert ihr Leben, falls jemand versucht, den Kommandanten von Ixia zu töten. Und so entscheidet sich Yelena, unter Anleitung des Sicherheitschefs Valek Vorkosterin des Kommandanten zu werden. Aber Valek überlässt nichts dem Zufall: Damit sie nicht flieht, gibt er ihr regelmäßig Schmetterlingsstaub ins Essen. Und nur, wenn sie täglich das Antiserum von ihm erhält, kann sie ihren langsamen und qualvollen Tod verhindern. Als Rebellen planen, Ixia in ihre Gewalt zu bringen, entwickelt Yelena magische Kräfte, die sie nicht kontrollieren kann. Doch Magie ist in Ixia unter Todesstrafe verboten. Einzig Irys, die Magierin des Südens, kann ihr jetzt noch helfen. Doch wenn Yelena versucht zu fliehen, wird der Schmetterlingsstaub sie langsam aber sicher vergiften.

Ideology and Rural Youth Mobilization in Japan and Its Colonies

Author: Sayaka Chatani

Publisher: Cornell University Press

ISBN: 1501730762

Category: History

By the end of World War II, hundreds of thousands of young men in the Japanese colonies, in particular Taiwan and Korea, had expressed their loyalty to the empire by volunteering to join the army. Why and how did so many colonial youth become passionate supporters of Japanese imperial nationalism? And what happened to these youth after the war? Nation-Empire investigates these questions by examining the long-term mobilization of youth in the rural peripheries of Japan, Taiwan, and Korea. Personal stories and village histories vividly show youth’s ambitions, emotions, and identities generated in the shifting conditions in each locality. At the same time, Sayaka Chatani unveils an intense ideological mobilization built from diverse contexts—the global rise of youth and agrarian ideals, Japan’s strong drive for assimilation and nationalization, and the complex emotions of younger generations in various remote villages. Nation-Empire engages with multiple historical debates. Chatani considers metropole-colony linkages, revealing the core characteristics of the Japanese Empire; discusses youth mobilization, analyzing the Japanese seinendan (village youth associations) as equivalent to the Boy Scouts or the Hitler Youth; and examines society and individual subjectivities under totalitarian rule. Her book highlights the shifting state-society transactions of the twentieth-century world through the lens of the Japanese Empire, inviting readers to contend with a new approach to, and a bold vision of, empire study.

The Terror That Comes in the Night

An Experience-Centered Study of Supernatural Assault Traditions

Author: David J. Hufford

Publisher: University of Pennsylvania Press

ISBN: 0812292596

Category: Social Science

Page: 304

View: 4305

David Hufford's work exploring the experiential basis for belief in the supernatural, focusing here on the so-called Old Hag experience, a psychologically disturbing event in which a victim claims to have encountered some form of malign entity while dreaming (or awake). Sufferers report feeling suffocated, held down by some "force," paralyzed, and extremely afraid. The experience is surprisingly common: the author estimates that approximately 15 percent of people undergo this event at some point in their lives. Various cultures have their own name for the phenomenon and have constructed their own mythology around it; the supernatural tenor of many Old Hag stories is unavoidable. Hufford, as a folklorist, is well-placed to investigate this puzzling occurrence.

Case Studies in Insomnia

If ever a book could be called timely, this is it. Sleep disorders medicine has made rapid advances in recent years. The field has attained growing respectability, with a textbook recently published, a congressionally man dated National Commission on Sleep Disorders Research, and a growing public awareness of the importance of sleep disorders. However, this rapid growth has made the discrepancy among certain components of the field all the more obvious. Thus, we find that patients who complain of insom nia are almost never in the majority of those seen in sleep disorders centers, in spite of the well-known fact that the prevalence of such individ uals in our society is by far the largest. Current articles on insomnia abound, but they tend to be facile recitations of diagnosis and impractical global recommendations for treat ment, without providing the essential details. Indeed, the clinical profes sions really do not know what to do about insomnia. This is reflected in a number of observations I have made in the recent past. For example, the majority of individuals who complain of insomnia take alcohol, aspirin, over-the-counter medications, hot baths, and a host of other nostrums, but rarely seek a physician. In the unlikely event that a physician is consulted, he is likely to prescribe a sleep medication but without any particular consistency, or any clear instructions on its use.
