The Crucible

Author: Arthur Miller

Publisher: Penguin

ISBN: 9781101042465

Category: Drama

Page: 176

View: 8078

A haunting examination of groupthink and mass hysteria in a rural community The place is Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692, an enclave of rigid piety huddled on the edge of a wilderness. Its inhabitants believe unquestioningly in their own sanctity. But in Arthur Miller's edgy masterpiece, that very belief will have poisonous consequences when a vengeful teenager accuses a rival of witchcraft—and then when those accusations multiply to consume the entire village. First produced in 1953, at a time when America was convulsed by a new epidemic of witch-hunting, The Crucible brilliantly explores the threshold between individual guilt and mass hysteria, personal spite and collective evil. It is a play that is not only relentlessly suspenseful and vastly moving but that compels readers to fathom their hearts and consciences in ways that only the greatest theater ever can. "A drama of emotional power and impact" —New York Post

The Death and Life of Great American Cities

Thirty years after its publication, The Death and Life of Great American Cities was described by The New York Times as "perhaps the most influential single work in the history of town planning....[It] can also be seen in a much larger context. It is first of all a work of literature; the descriptions of street life as a kind of ballet and the bitingly satiric account of traditional planning theory can still be read for pleasure even by those who long ago absorbed and appropriated the book's arguments." Jane Jacobs, an editor and writer on architecture in New York City in the early sixties, argued that urban diversity and vitality were being destroyed by powerful architects and city planners. Rigorous, sane, and delightfully epigrammatic, Jacobs's small masterpiece is a blueprint for the humanistic management of cities. It is sensible, knowledgeable, readable, indispensable. The author has written a new foreword for this Modern Library edition.

Middlesex

Author: Jeffrey Eugenides

Publisher: Vintage Canada

ISBN: 0307401944

Category: Fiction

Page: 544

View: 2001

Spanning eight decades and chronicling the wild ride of a Greek-American family through the vicissitudes of the twentieth century, Jeffrey Eugenides’ witty, exuberant novel on one level tells a traditional story about three generations of a fantastic, absurd, lovable immigrant family -- blessed and cursed with generous doses of tragedy and high comedy. But there’s a provocative twist. Cal, the narrator -- also Callie -- is a hermaphrodite. And the explanation for this takes us spooling back in time, through a breathtaking review of the twentieth century, to 1922, when the Turks sacked Smyrna and Callie’s grandparents fled for their lives. Back to a tiny village in Asia Minor where two lovers, and one rare genetic mutation, set our narrator’s life in motion. Middlesex is a grand, utterly original fable of crossed bloodlines, the intricacies of gender, and the deep, untidy promptings of desire. It’s a brilliant exploration of divided people, divided families, divided cities and nations -- the connected halves that make up ourselves and our world. Justly acclaimed when it was released in Fall 2002, it announces the arrival of a major writer for our times. From the Hardcover edition.

The most current version is only available directly from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Sterling Test Prep web store. This book provides a thorough and curriculum-oriented review of U.S. History that matches College Board's most current SAT US History subject test content outline. The content is divided into three historical periods and is centered around five focus areas. Historical periods: ∙ Period 1: Pre-Columbian to 1789 ∙ Period 2: 1790-1898 ∙ Period 3: 1899-Present Focus areas: ∙ Political history ∙ Economic history ∙ Social history ∙ Intellectual and cultural history ∙ Foreign policy The information is presented in a clear and easy to understand style. Students can study one focus area of one historical period at a time to fully comprehend and internalize important historical relationships. Since many questions on the SAT US History Subject Test do not require simple fact recall, but rather aim to assess your overall, wider understanding of the subject, the content of this preparation book is context-based. A context-based approach to studying US History is more engaging than a raw fact-based approach and is necessary for successful test preparation. By using this book as the review guide before the test, you will develop the necessary skills and will be well prepared for the SAT US History Subject Test. The content of this book is developed and edited by highly qualified history teachers, scholars and education specialists with an emphasis on the outline and skills released by the College Board for the SAT US History Subject Test 2016.

Women of Allah

As an Iranian woman, Shirin Neshat's startling photographs convey a power that is more than merely exotic. Veiled women brandish guns in defiant stances, with Arabic calligraphy drawn upon the background of the photos. Though their non-Western iconography may at first disorient the viewer, these pictures have a boldly stylized look that is utterly compelling.
