This fascinating book offers twelve chapters by experts in the field of Celtic mythology--from myth and the medieval to comparative mythology and the new cosmological approach. Celtic Myth in the 21st Century offers a wide range of innovative research that leads readers on an adventure through the wonders of Celtic history: the possible use of hallucinogenic mushrooms in ancient Ireland to the mental mapping in the interpretation of the Irish legend T�in B� Cuailgne. It also looks at the modern integration of established scholarship with new findings that have recently emerged at the Indo-European level; these developments have the potential to open up the whole field of mythology in a new way. An exciting addition to existing scholarship, Celtic Myth in the 21st Century is the first book to offer a view of Celtic mythology as the reflection of a prehistoric state that it is possible to recover through integrated cosmological enquiry.

The book is the fruit of Douglas Mark Ponton's and co-editor Uwe Zagratzki's enduring interest in the Blues as a musical and cultural phenomenon and source of personal inspiration. Continuing in the tradition of Blues studies established by the likes of Samuel Charters and Paul Oliver, the authors hope to contribute to the revitalisation of the field through a multi-disciplinary approach designed to explore this constantly evolving social phenomenon in all its heterogeneity. Focusing either on particular artists (Lightnin' Hopkins, Robert Johnson), or specific texts (Langston Hughes' Weary Blues and Backlash Blues, Jimi Hendrix's Machine Gun), the book tackles issues ranging from authenticity and musicology in Blues performance to the Blues in diaspora, while also applying techniques of linguistic analysis to the corpora of Blues texts. While some chapters focus on the Blues as a quintessentially American phenomenon, linked to a specific social context, others see it in its current evolutions, as the bearer of vital cultural attitudes into the digital age. This multidisciplinary volume will appeal to a broad range of scholars operating in a number of different academic disciplines, including Musicology, Linguistics, Sociology, History, Ethnomusicology, Literature, Economics and Cultural Studies. It will also interest educators across the Humanities, and could be used to exemplify the application to data of specific analytical methodologies, and as a general introduction to the field of Blues studies.

Out of the ruins, a true diamond emerges. A classic work that turns LEADERSHIP on its head. At last, the 'elephant in the room' gets to take centre stage! In this dramatic tale, ambitious new Manager, Themanus, has his leadership character tested against the challenges of a 21st century workplace. " Does the 'Myth of Themanus' (with its lovely classical allusions!) deliver? It does. Anyone who has even the smallest experience of issues in a contemporary work environment would recognise the challenges posed by types of divisive 'them-and-us' thinking . . . so we have much to learn from such work."

Only a small, scruffy dog might save him... But is it too late, as he balances on the edge of the bridge, looking out on his death. 'Leaper' is the third novelette of the Classic Myths Reinvented series from White House Press.

When you take the plunge, they say, your whole life flashes before your eyes. The highs, the lows. In the original myth of Icarus, the eponymous hero was warned not to fly too close to the sun, for fear that the wax which attached his wings to him might melt. In AJK Sutherland's tale, it is all the trappings of the 21st century which melt, and our Icarus is left to contemplate his life as a failure, with no hope of redemption. Only a small, scruffy dog might save him... But is it too late, as he balances on the edge of the bridge, looking out on his death. 'Leaper' is the third novelette of the Classic Myths Reinvented series from White House Press. Taking as its inspiration the mythical character of 'Icarus', AJK Sutherland's tragic tale of failed ambition and hubris is "a tear-a-minute writing" (The Book Shelf Reviews) which "soars to the heights of mania, before plunging to the depths of depression... sometimes within the same sentence." (The Bar-Room Literary Critic).

Text messages. Alcohol. And a custody battle with her erstwhile partner which threatens to tear her world apart. 'Mother Nature' is the second novelette of the Classic Myths Reinvented series from White House Press.

"I wake up and my head feels like a broken dog biscuit." So begins our descent into our 21st century 'Persephone's' world. In Greek myth Persephone was Queen of the Underworld, only, in Kier's story, that underworld is very much the world we know. For hers is a world of casual drug use and even more casual sex. Text messages. Alcohol. And a custody battle with her erstwhile partner which threatens to tear her world apart. 'Mother Nature' is the second novelette of the Classic Myths Reinvented series from White House Press. Taking as its inspiration the Greek myth of 'Persephone', James Henry Kier's highly-stylized piece is "a triumph of modern, stream-of-consciousness narration, in the grand Scots manner of such luminaries as James Kelman and Irvine Welsh" (The Book Shelf Reviews), and "a remarkably heartfelt and inventive text" (The Bar-Room Literery Critic).
