Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Embark on a journey through the darkly bizarre and magical Underworld in this gorgeously illustrated origin story. In the dark fantasy universe of Court of the Dead, the savage war between Heaven and Hell is a futile stalemate fueled by the souls of mortals, whose purpose of existence has been twisted into nothing more than raw material for the harvest. Yet in seeking to transcend his grim duty in order to return meaning and inspiration to the cosmos, Death and his Court are cast as humanity's unlikely saviors. Into this dramatic setting are born Demithyle and his fellow reapers, whose first task is to confront the ever-advancing scourge of the vicious bael reiver hordes, ravenous and destructive wraiths who threaten to destroy the Underworld and end the Court's struggle before it begins. Join Demithyle as he evolves from humble foot soldier to reluctant captain, encountering many strange and wondrous characters and places, and finally accepts the mantle of the exalted Reaper General in order to lead to victory the Underworld's last, best hope for salvation.
Download or read book The Rise of the Prophetic Voice written by Alph Lukau and published by Balboa Press. This book was released on 2019-10-24 with total page 266 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Rise of the Prophetic Voice is an educational and revolutionary book that deals with biblical truths about the prophetic and its practical operation in our time. This book is a rare tool of the Holy Spirit, dedicated to shedding light about the prophetic to the body of Christ and to raising an end-time army of prophets for the Lord. The prophetic is the oldest and most documented ministry in the Bible, yet it is the least known in today's generation. No other ministry is known to be more effective in the Kingdom of God than the prophetic. The Bible, the most sacred book we have in the Kingdom of God, is a prophetic book; the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was a fulfilment of a prophetic word. God is restoring the prophetic in the church and calling all his sons and daughters to be prophetic. The world today glorifies individualism and independence from God as a pathway to freedom, rendering the very essence of God irrelevant. However, the well-informed, Spirit- led and powerful revelations in * Rise of the Prophetic Voice * demonstrate God's unfailing power and establishes his supremacy amongst men once again. This book will give you the biblical foundation of the prophetic, help you to discover your calling or gift in it and ignite in you its fire. Beyond all doubts, I believe this book will revolutionise the lives of its readers and restore the glory of the mighty God in the world.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Rage Against The Machine changed the shape of music with their rampant self-titled debut album in 1992. Here was a politically charged troupe that took advantage of major label backing yet spoke out on issues that few stars in the spotlight dared to - never afraid to insist their message was just as important as the music. The sales came in the millions and critical acclaim besieged them ... until De La Rocha left the band in 2000. Instead of attempting to replace the inimitable orator, Morello and Co. threw a curveball and hired ex-Soundgarden throat Chris Cornell to create a new band named Audioslave. Yet there was always the genius of Rage Against The Machine in the background and in 2007 the band reformed with De La Rocha included. Millions have waited a long time to see the spectacle unfold once again.This is the story of how a Harvard graduate and a poetical activist welded together, along with several capable cohorts, to create a bastion of youth revival and change through the medium of their striking, innovative material - a glutton of musical riches which continues to amaze and inspire today. It is also the story about the power and durability of protest music as well as a glimpse into the future of one of the greatest bands of all-time. UNOFFICIAL & UNAUTHORISED

Download or read book The Rise of the Arabic Book written by Beatrice Gruendler and published by Harvard University Press. This book was released on 2020-10-13 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The little-known story of the sophisticated and vibrant Arabic book culture that flourished during the Middle Ages. During the thirteenth century, Europe’s largest library owned fewer than 2,000 volumes. Libraries in the Arab world at the time had exponentially larger collections. Five libraries in Baghdad alone held between 200,000 and 1,000,000 books each, including multiple copies of standard works so that their many patrons could enjoy simultaneous access. How did the Arabic codex become so popular during the Middle Ages, even as the well-established form languished in Europe? Beatrice Gruendler’s The Rise of the Arabic Book answers this question through in-depth stories of bookmakers and book collectors, stationers and librarians, scholars and poets of the ninth century. The history of the book has been written with an outsize focus on Europe. The role books played in shaping the great literary cultures of the world beyond the West has been less known—until now. An internationally renowned expert in classical Arabic literature, Gruendler corrects this oversight and takes us into the rich literary milieu of early Arabic letters.

Download or read book The Rise of the Latin American Baseball Leagues, 1947Ð1961 written by Lou Hernández and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2011-10-06 with total page 412 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Major League Baseball today would be unrecognizable without the large number of Latin American players and managers filling its ranks. Their strong influence on the sport can trace its beginnings to professional leagues established south of the border and in the Caribbean nations in the 1940s. This narrative history of Latin American baseball leagues during the 1940s and 1950s provides an in-depth, year-by-year chronicle of seasonal leagues in the seven primary baseball-playing areas in the region: Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Venezuela, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico. The success of these leagues, and their often acrimonious competition with U.S. Organized Baseball, eventually ushered in a new era of contract concessions from owners and general labor advancements for players that forever changed the game.
Download or read book The Accidental Republic written by John Fabian Witt and published by Harvard University Press. This book was released on 2009-06-30 with total page 322 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the five decades after the Civil War, the United States witnessed a profusion of legal institutions designed to cope with the nation's exceptionally acute industrial accident crisis. Jurists elaborated the common law of torts. Workingmen's organizations founded a widespread system of cooperative insurance. Leading employers instituted welfare-capitalist accident relief funds. And social reformers advocated compulsory insurance such as workmen's compensation. John Fabian Witt argues that experiments in accident law at the turn of the twentieth century arose out of competing views of the loose network of ideas and institutions that historians call the ideology of free labor. These experiments a century ago shaped twentieth- and twenty-first-century American accident law; they laid the foundations of the American administrative state; and they occasioned a still hotly contested legal transformation from the principles of free labor to the categories of insurance and risk. In this eclectic moment at the beginnings of the modern state, Witt describes American accident law as a contingent set of institutions that might plausibly have developed along a number of historical paths. In turn, he suggests, the making of American accident law is the story of the equally contingent remaking of our accidental republic. Table of Contents: Introduction 1. Crippled Workingmen, Destitute Widows, and the Crisis of Free Labor 2. The Dilemmas of Classical Tort Law 3. The Cooperative Insurance Movement 4. From Markets to Managers 5. Widows, Actuaries, and the Logics of Social Insurance 6. The Passion of William Werner 7. The Accidental Republic Conclusion Notes Acknowledgments Index John Witt paints his portrait of industrializing America with the subtlety of a master and on an immense canvas. His magisterial history is much more than an account of the rise of workers compensation, still one of our greatest social reforms. Witt vividly recreates the social context of the late 19th century industrial world - workers' appalling injury and death rates, their mutual help and insurance associations, mass immigration, the rise of Taylorist management, the struggles to give new meaning to the free labor ideal, the encounter between European social engineering and American anti-statism and individualism, and the politics and economics of labor relations in the Progressive era. Out of these materials, Witt shows, the law helped fashion a new social order. His analysis has great contemporary significance, revealing both the alluring possibilities and the enduring limits of legal reform in America. It is destined to become a classic of social and legal history. --Peter H. Schuck, author of Diversity in America: Keeping Government at a Safe Distance John Witt shows us the power of perceptive legal history at work. Within the tangle of compensation for industrial accidents, he discovers not only a legal struggle whose outcome set the pattern for many 20th century interventions of government in economic life, but also a momentous confrontation between contract and collective responsibility. Anyone who finds American history absorbing will gain pleasure and insight from this book. --Viviana Zelizer, Princeton University, author of The Social Meaning of Money: Pin Money, Paychecks, Poor Relief, and Other Currencies In 1940 Willard Hurst and Lloyd Garrison inaugurated modern socio-legal studies in the United States with their history of workers' injuries and legal process in Wisconsin. Two generations later, John Fabian Witt's The Accidental Republic marks the full maturation of that field of inquiry. Deftly integrating a legal analysis of tort doctrine, a history of industrial accidents, and a fresh political-economic understanding of statecraft, Witt demonstrates the significance of turn-of-the-century struggles over work, injury, risk, reparation, and regulation in the making of our modern world. Sophisticated, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary, The Accidental Republic is legal history as Hurst and Garrison imagined it could be. --William Novak, The University of Chicago, author of The People's Welfare: Law and Regulation in Nineteenth-Century America
Download or read book The Rise of Alchemy in Fourteenth-Century England written by Jonathan Hughes and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2012-03-08 with total page 296 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Alchemists did more than try to transmute base metals into gold: they studied planetary influences on metals and people, refined plants and minerals in the search for medicines and advocated the regeneration of matter and spirit. This book illustrates how this new branch of thought became increasingly popular as the practical and theoretical knowledge of alchemists spread throughout England.Adopted by those in court and the circles of nobility for their own physical and spiritual needs, it was adapted for the diagnosis and therapeutic treatment of the illnesses of the body politic and its head, the king. This is the first work to synthesize all aspects of alchemy and show its contribution to intellectual, social and political life in the fourteenth century. Hughes explores a rich body of manuscripts to reveal the daily routines of the alchemist and his imaginative mindscape, and considers the contribution of alchemy to the vernacular culture and political debate, leading to a reassessment of the intellectual life of the middle ages.
