A millennia-long war between two immortal races is about to come to an end. Long ago, the Vampire Elite began capturing the immortals called the Amiti, attracted by their unique blood properties. Now most Amiti live in underground cells, forced to serve as vampires’ bloodstock. The few surviving free Amiti, preparing a final strike, have declared the Amiti Queen a traitor. Her execution makes possible the rise of a new Queen, her young daughter Arianna, who will inherit her mother’s mystical powers. Working with the Keepers of the Key, Arianna may be able to eliminate the vampires, once and for all, from the face of the earth. The new Queen is the last hope to save her dying race, and she’s ready to fight to the last drop of her blood. But the King of the Vampires has other plans. What neither expects is the passion that erupts between them.

English summary: In this volume, eleven authors study the works of Ralf Dreier, one of the outstanding legal philosophers of a generation which grew up before 1945 but whose independent thinking did not develop until the post-war period. Dreier's thoughts focused on the core question in the philosophy of law: What is the law?. His way of dealing with this problem can be described using the terms system and interpretation. He studied the relationship between the philosophy of law, the theory of law, the sociology of law and legal dogmatics with great integrative energy. In doing so, his central theme is to connect those elements which are separated or scattered to form a whole, a system. German description: Die hier gesammelten Beitrage befassen sich mit dem Werk Ralf Dreiers, einem der herausragenden deutschen Rechtsphilosophen der Generation derer, die zwar noch vor 1945 aufgewachsen sind, deren eigenstandiges Denken sich aber erst in der Nachkriegszeit entfaltet hat. Im Zentrum der Dreierschen Uberlegungen steht die klassische Kernfrage der Rechtsphilosophie: Was ist Recht? Seine Art, dies Problem zu behandeln, lasst sich durch die Begriffe des Systems und der Interpretation kennzeichnen. Mit grosser integrativer Kraft behandelt er die Verhaltnisse zwischen Rechtsphilosophie, Rechtstheorie, Rechtssoziologie und Rechtsdogmatik. Sein Leitmotiv ist dabei das Zusammenfugen des Getrennten und Zerstreuten zu einem Ganzen, zu einem System. Dieser systematische Zugriff ist untrennbar mit der interpretativen Aneignung grosser Philosophen und bedeutender Rechtstheoretiker verbunden. Elf Autoren unternehmen es, diese fur Ralf Dreier so kennzeichnende Verknupfung des Interpretativen mit dem Systematischen zu analysieren. So entsteht erstmals ein umfassendes Bild einer Rechtsphilosophie, die sich mit dem Titel dieses Buches als Integratives Verstehen charakterisieren lasst.

'The bitter tragedy of human life— horrors of death, attack, retreat, advance, and the great game of Destiny and Chance. ' In The Liberation of Jerusalem (Gerusalemme liberata, 1581), Torquato Tasso set out to write an epic to rival the Iliad and the Aeneid. Unlike his predecessors, he took his subject not from myth but from history: the Christian capture of Jerusalem during the First Crusade. The siege of the city is played out alongside a magical romance of love and sacrifice, in which the Christian knight Rinaldo succumbs to the charms of the pagan sorceress Armida, and the warrior maiden Clorinda inspires a fatal passion in the Christian Tancred. Tasso's masterpiece left its mark on writers from Spenser and Milton to Goethe and Byron, and inspired countless painters and composers. This is the first English translation in modern times that faithfully reflects both the sense and the verse form of the original. Max Wickert's fine rendering is introduced by Mark Davie, who places Tasso's poem in the context of his life and times and points to the qualities that have ensured its lasting impact on Western culture. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
