英国环岛之旅

[美]保罗·索鲁 / 人民文学出版社 / 2019-08-15 / 0 次下载
据说,英国是世界上被书写得最多的国家。正因为我们知道的英国都是听别人讲的,所以其实我们对英国一无所知。一个布满交通工具与步径的古老国度,似乎境内的每个地方都有人迹,但每个英国人吹的牛都不一样,每一英里也都有其特色。英国每一处距离大海都很近,海岸本身就是英国。时值1982年,福克兰群岛战役的夏天,在伦敦居住了十一年的保罗•索鲁决定沿海岸线顺时针漫游一圈。他发现这是个了解英国与英国人的理想时机。******据说,英国是这世上被书写得最多的国家。正因为我们知道的英国都是听别人讲的,所以其实我们对英国一无所知。一个布满交通工具与步径的古老国度,似乎境内的每个地方都有人迹,到底有什么好玩的?但每个英国人吹的牛都不一样,每一英里也都有其特色。英国每一处距离大海都很近,海岸本身就是英国。在伦敦居住十多年的美国人保罗•索鲁想一探大英帝国究竟,顺时针沿着海岸线漫游了一圈。他的旅游路径是这样的:英格兰肯定是像一只猪;鼻子在西南方的威尔士,伸出去的脚是康沃尔,而臀部是东安格利亚,整个英国就像是一个女巫骑着一只猪,而这轮廓──臀部、鼻子和女帽,以及苏格兰西部那张愁容,就是此次旅游的路线。对一个岛来说,还有什么比环游其海岸线更能看清它的呢?保罗•索鲁对游人扎堆的名胜占迹避之唯恐不及,也不像很多背包客只陶醉于旅行的时长和距离;而是徒步于海滨步道或搭乘铁路慢车,跟每个人说话,仔细观察一切,从中探知这老牌帝国的真正风貌。正如詹宏志所说,保罗•索鲁是一位“反省‘旅行’本身的旅行者”。一个观察敏锐、用语风趣的作家。也许因为他是美国人,所以在英国人眼里没有明显的阶层特征,他的天赋之一就是与人畅谈,与各类人相处愉快……索鲁是个绝佳的旅伴。——《泰晤士报》糅合了历史、洞察力、景致描写、领悟、冥想、颂扬和挽歌。——《纽约时报》这是保罗·索鲁至今最好的作品。——《乡村之声》保罗·索鲁的这本周游大不列颠的游记,有趣又具有知识性,但是热血沸腾的爱国主义者请避开。——《周日邮报》我们中很少有人见识过海岸线的全貌,我本人对索鲁心怀感激,因为他让我免去了亲自游走的辛劳。他已经将全程如实且妙趣横生地告诉了我们。——《观察家报》******推荐语:旅行作家保罗·索鲁环游英国徒步于海滨步道,搭慢车,与各类英国人闲聊看似平静的英国城镇正发生历史的变迁对一个岛来说,还有什么比环游海岸线更能看清它的呢?英格兰像一只猪,鼻子在西南方的威尔士,伸出去的脚是康沃尔,臀部是东安格利亚,整个英国就像一个女巫骑着一只猪,这轮廓便是这次旅行的路线。

廉价的代价

[美]拉杰·帕特尔, [美]詹森·w.摩尔 / 中信出版集团 / 2018-03-01 / 0 次下载
作者运用前沿的生态学研究、西方列强殖民史、原住民斗争史和其他被压迫人群的反抗史,阐明资本主义正是通过廉价战略——使自然、货币、劳动、关怀、食物、能源和生命保持廉价——才造成了当今世界的现状及资本主义即将灭亡的趋势。这是一本让人耳目一新的、再认识资本主义的伟大著作。跟其他同类书相比,本书的独特性在于作者主张从 “世界-生态”理论的视角下去理解资本主义。该理论主张用生命网络(web of life)的方式思考人类历史,研究权力、生产和再生产是如何通过生命网络实现的。作者认为资本主义是集权力、资本和自然界于一体的各种关系的集合,资本主义在追求无穷无尽积累的驱动下,通过不断开辟新边疆而实现全球扩张。新边疆是资本与自然界的交汇区,正是在一个一个新边疆,资本主义国家运用暴力、文化、知识确保廉价战略得以贯彻,才获得巨大的市场。阅读此书,对读者了解资本主义经济危机的起源,思考经济增长的速度、质量、效益和如何促进环境保护工作有一定的帮助和启示。

广州鲁迅

朱崇科 / 中国社会科学出版社 / 2014-08-01 / 0 次下载
本书着眼于鲁迅担任正教授时期的广州阶段,着力考察以广州为中心的鲁迅存在。为此,虽然考察广州鲁迅的立体与多元,但在许多论题上同时也会追溯到北京和厦门时期,旁及上海时期,互相连缀、比照彰显。本书在论述中立足于坚实的各种资料,但同时也活用了法国思想家布尔迪厄(Pierre Bourdieu,1930-2002)的场域理论,首先考察1927年广州的社会、政治、经济、文化场域的复杂关系,在此基础上,呈现出鲁迅自身的转型特征。 整体而言,本书主要考察鲁迅先生在1927年广州场域中的转换作用、角色和自我的嬗变。主要从四个方面展开:1作为写作人;2革命者;3教授/教务长;4中年男人。

Wow!原来日本妈妈这样教孩子

孙玉梅, ePUBw.COM / 新世界出版社 / 2011-08-15 / 0 次下载
《爱立方系列:Wow!原来日本妈妈这样教孩子》讲述了:◆无论是从小教孩子不麻烦别人,自己的事自己做,还是让孩子大冬天的只穿毛衫和单裤出去跑步,锻炼孩子的身体素质,都反映了日本家长的教育态度,那就是,如果真正为了孩子好,一定要狠心,要用“武士道”精神教育孩子,一定要舍得,而不是一味地宠爱!◆孩子摔倒时,你去扶他或哄他,会给孩子造成一种印象:我摔倒了,别人必须要扶我、帮我、哄我。时间长了,孩子就会产生依赖,即使他摔得不痛,他也会指望着别人来扶,从而养成了凡事依赖他人的恶习。◆培养孩子的幻想能力。幻想是培养创造力的一种特殊方式,是一切创新的基础,所以,父母要鼓励孩子异想天开,大胆联想,并有自己独特的想法。◆让孩子明白团队合作精神的重要性。所谓团队合作精神,就是指团结一致、互帮互助,为了一个共同的目标顽强不屈、奋斗到底的精神。这种精神,一定要在孩子小时候就进行培养。

《道氏理论》内容简介:查尔斯•道是道琼斯公司的伟大缔造者,也是《华尔街日报》的创办人之一。直到1902年离开人世,查尔斯•道一直在《华尔街日报》担任编辑工作。查尔斯•道先生并没有将自己对股票市场的研究理念定义为道氏理论。这一概念由查尔斯•道先生的挚友萨谬尔•A•尼尔森在其著作《股票投机原理》中首次提出。在该著作之中,尼尔森第一次从实战应用的角度阐释了道氏理论。此后,威廉•P•汉密尔顿和罗伯特•雷亚潜心研究,并热衷于推广道氏理论,使之更加准确完善。《道氏理论》尝试对道氏理论化繁为简,便于对那些试图运用道氏理论指导操作实践的读者有所帮助。

Deep Storm

Lincoln Child, ePUBw.COM / Anchor / 2007-01-30 / 0 次下载
Synopsis:Twelve-thousand feet beneath the Atlantic Ocean . . . scientists are excavating the most extraordinary undersea discovery ever made. But is it the greatest archaeological find in history—or the most terrifying?Former naval doctor Peter Crane is urgently summoned to a remote oil platform in the North Atlantic to help diagnose a bizarre medical condition spreading through the rig. But when he arrives, Crane learns that the real trouble lies far below—on “Deep Storm,” a stunningly advanced science research facility built two miles beneath the surface on the ocean floor. The topsecret structure has been designed for one purpose: to excavate a recently discovered undersea site that may hold the answers to a mystery steeped in centuries of myth and speculation. Sworn to secrecy, Dr. Crane descends to Deep Storm. A year earlier, he is told, routine drilling uncovered the remains of mankind’s most sophisticated ancient civilization: the legendary Atlantis. But now that the site is being excavated, a series of disturbing illnesses has begun to affect the operation. Scientists and technicians are experiencing a bizarre array of symptoms—from simple fatigue to violent psychotic episodes. As Crane is indoctrinated into the strange world of Deep Storm and commences his investigation, he begins to suspect that the covert facility conceals something more complicated than a medical mystery.The discovery of Atlantis might, in fact, be a cover for something far more sinister . . . and deadly. Like Lincoln Child’s spectacular bestsellers coauthored with Douglas Preston (The Book of the Dead, Relic), Deep Storm melds scientific detail and gripping adventure in a superbly imagined, chillingly real journey into unknown territory. Child is a master of suspense, and Deep Storm is his most ambitious novel to date.Publishers Weekly:Best known as the coauthor (with Douglas Preston) of such bestselling thrillers as Dance of Death, Child delivers a well-crafted and literate science fiction thriller, his third solo effort (after 2004's Death Match). Peter Crane, a former naval doctor, faces the challenge of his career when he investigates a mysterious illness that has broken out on a North Atlantic oil rig. Sworn to secrecy, Crane is transported from the rig to an amazing undersea habitat run by the military that's apparently pursuing evidence that Atlantis exists. Psychotic episodes among the scientific staff as well as the activities of a saboteur that threatens the project's safety keep Crane busy, even as some of the staff members confront him with concerns that exploring the Earth's core could be fatal to all life on earth. Crisp writing energizes a familiar plot, which builds to an unsettling climax with echoes of Child and Preston's The Ice Limit. Author tour. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.Biography:Lincoln Child is the co-author with Douglas Preston of a bestselling thriller/adventure series. A former book editor at St. Martin's Press, he has published numerous short story anthologies and founded the company's mass market horror division. He also writes novels and techno-thrillers on his own.

Europe in the High Middle Ages

William Chester Jordan, ePUBw.COM / Penguin / 2001-01-02 / 0 次下载
From Publishers WeeklyAs Jordan shows, the Middle Ages in Europe were indeed the best of times and worst of times. The beauties of Gothic architecture, the revivals of Latin literature, the rise of the university, the lyrical romances and chivalric chansons formed the high points of years that also witnessed famine, plague, political and religious squabbles, and the Crusades. Princeton historian Jordan (The Great Famine) marvelously weaves the many and various events of the years 1000-1350 into a splendid historical tapestry. He discusses how various European countries experienced the Middle Ages, putting to rest the notion that the era was monolithic and affected everyone the same way. The conflict between the Catholic Church and the state lies at the heart of the medieval period, and Jordan adeptly chronicles that struggle. As the monarchy gained power, the Church found that even voices within, such as monastic movements like the Franciscans and the Dominicans, sought reform. By the end of the Middle Ages, the Church found itself in a crisis that laid the groundwork for the Protestant Reformation. Jordan's magisterial survey indicates how rich and significant the Middle Ages were in forming European culture. That this is the inaugural volume in the Penguin History of Europe augurs very well for the series. Illus., maps. (On sale Jan. 27) Copyright 2002 Reed Business Information, Inc. From BooklistA glimpse of light between early medieval chaos and a plague-infested fourteenth century, the twelfth and thirteenth centuries were an era of significant cultural and economic progress as well as the time of most of the things we traditionally associate with the Middle Ages, including Gothic cathedrals, knights, Crusades, and courtly love. Contextualizing these and other high points, this book gives a balanced, comprehensive description of Europe's first renaissance. Jordan is both concise and thorough, covering all geographic regions and supplementing his political narrative (who begot whom, who beheaded whom) with occasional discussion of cultural advances and everyday life (as well as ever-helpful genealogical tables). He is also somewhat fast moving, assuming at least a basic understanding of the most major events as he points up the underlying themes that define the High Middle Ages: the increasing power of the papacy, the effect of philosophical and violent contact with Islam, difficulty in succession, and others. The third in Penguin's eight-part series in European history is highly accessible yet academic enough to be valuable as a collegiate text. Brendan DriscollCopyright © American Library Association.

When a Billion Chinese Jump: How China Will Save Mankind - or Destroy It. By Jonathan Watts

Jonathan Watts, ePUBw.COM / Faber & Faber / 2010-01-02 / 0 次下载
From Publishers WeeklyAsian environmental correspondent for the Guardian, Watts travels to the four corners of China, from the southwest Himalayan region, rebranded as "Shangri-la" to attract tourists, to Xanadu (Shangdu) in Inner Mongolia, exploring how Beijing is balancing economic growth with sustainability and whether China will "emerge as the world's first green superpower" or tip our species "over the environmental precipice." What he finds is both hopeful and disturbing. Wildlife refuges, rather than focusing on biodiversity, breed animals for meat and traditional remedies like black bear bile. The city of Ordos plans to build a huge wind farm and solar plant, but these benefits are offset by its coal-liquification mine, "an environmentalist's worst nightmare" of greenhouse gases and water exploitation. The Chinese dictatorship, envied by other nations for its ability to enact environmental changes without the slow democratic process, turns out to be ineffective, with power lying with developers and local bureaucracies. Readers interested in global warming will appreciate the firsthand information about China, and Watts's travels are so extensive and China is changing so fast, some material is likely to be fresh and new even for Sinologists. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. From BooklistStarred Review Watts, an environmental correspondent for the Guardian, moved to Beijing in 2003 and found himself in the midst of an environmental crisis. Traveling through the vast land, Watts witnessed the toll that dams and railways take on the mountains of Tibet, and took part in an expedition to locate the last of a dwindling dolphin species known as the baiji, which was declared extinct after the search failed to turn up even a single one. He saw where Western waste—everything from computer hard drives to hotel welcome mats—piled up to be recycled in Guangdong and witnessed the suffering of people afflicted with cancer and AIDS in overcrowded Henan province. This stands in stark contrast to the luxuries of modernized cities, such as Shanghai, or even industrial villages like Huaxi, where citizens enjoy higher standards of living, in exchange for handing their paper wealth over to the authorities. Watts also meets forward-looking thinkers, such as Li Can, a professor working on solar power. Watts’ comprehensive, revealing study is eye-opening, not only for the way it illuminates how China’s population growth and rapid modernization affect the environment, but also for its exposure of the way Western waste contributes to the problem. --Kristine Huntley

Dive From Clausen's Pier

Ann Packer / Random House Digital, Inc. / 2002-04-01 / 0 次下载
"The Dive from Clausen's Pier is one of those small miracles that reinforce our faith in fiction. It does what the best novels so often do, making the largest things visible by its perfect rendering of life on the smaller scale. It is witty, tragic and touching, and beguiling from the first page." --Scott Turow A riveting novel about loyalty and self-knowledge, and the conflict between who we want to be to others and who we must be for ourselves. Carrie Bell has lived in Wisconsin all her life. She’s had the same best friend, the same good relationship with her mother, the same boyfriend, Mike, now her fiancé, for as long as anyone can remember. It’s with real surprise she finds that, at age twenty-three, her life has begun to feel suffocating. She longs for a change, an upheaval, for a chance to begin again.That chance is granted to her, terribly, when Mike is injured in an accident. Now Carrie has to question everything she thought she knew about herself and the meaning of home. She must ask: How much do we owe the people we love? Is it a sign of strength or of weakness to walk away from someone in need?The Dive from Clausen’s Pier reminds us how precarious our lives are and how quickly they can be divided into before and after, whether by random accident or by the force of our own desires. It begins with a disaster that could happen, out of the blue, in anybody’s life, and it forces us to ask how we would bear up in the face of tragedy and what we know, or think we know, about our deepest allegiances. Elegantly written and ferociously paced, emotionally nuanced and morally complex, The Dive from Clausen’s Pier marks the emergence of a prodigiously gifted new novelist.

Under the Dome: A Novel

Stephen King / Gallery Books / 2013-06-11 / 0 次下载
On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when -- or if -- it will go away. Dale Barbara, Iraq vet and now a short-order cook, finds himself teamed with a few intrepid citizens -- town newspaper owner Julia Shumway, a physician's assistant at the hospital, a select-woman, and three brave kids. Against them stands Big Jim Rennie, a politician who will stop at nothing -- even murder -- to hold the reins of power, and his son, who is keeping a horrible secret in a dark pantry. But their main adversary is the Dome itself. Because time isn't just short. It's running out. Amazon.com ReviewAmazon Exclusive: Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan Reviews *Under the Dome*Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan share their enthusiasm for Stephen King's thriller, Under the Dome. This pair of reviewers knows a thing or two about the art of crafting a great thriller. Del Toro is the Oscar-nominated director of international blockbuster films, including Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy. Hogan is the author of several acclaimed novels, including The Standoff and Prince of Thieves, which won the International Association of Crime Writer's Dashiell Hammett Award in 2005. The two recently collaborated to write the bestselling horror novel, The Strain, the first of a proposed trilogy. Read their exclusive Amazon guest review of Under the Dome:The first thing readers might find scary about Stephen King's Under The Dome is its length. The second is the elaborate town map and list of characters at the front of the book (including "Dogs of Note"), which sometimes portends, you know, heavy lifting. Don't you believe it. Breathless pacing and effortless characterization are the hallmarks of King's best books, and here the writing is immersive, the suspense unrelenting. The pages turn so fast that your hand--or Kindle-clicking thumb--will barely be able to keep up. You Are Here.Nobody yarns a “What if?” like Stephen King. Nobody. The implausibility of a dome sealing off an entire city--a motif seen before in pulp magazines and on comic book covers--is given the most elaborate real-life alibi by crafting details, observations, and insights that make us nod silently while we read. Promotional materials reference The Stand in comparison, but we liken Under The Dome more to King's excellent novella, The Mist: another locked-door situation on an epic scale, a tour-de-force in which external stressors bake off the civility of a small town full of dark secrets, exposing souls both very good...and very, very bad.Yes, "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street," but there is so much more this time. The expansion of King’s diorama does not simply take a one-street fable and turn it into a town, but finds new life for old archetypes, making them morally complex and attuned to our world today. It makes them relevant and affecting once again. And the beauty of it all is that the final lesson, the great insight that is gained at the end of this draining journey, is not a righteous 1950’s sermon but an incredibly moving and simple truth. A nugget of wisdom you'll be using as soon as you turn the last page. This Is Now.Along the way, you get bravura writing, especially featuring the town kids, and a delicious death aria involving one of the most nefarious characters--who dies alone, but not really--as well as a few laugh-out-loud moments, and a cameo (of sorts) by none other than Jack Reacher. Indeed--whether during a much-needed comfort break, or a therapeutic hand-flexing--you may find yourself wondering, "Is this a horror novel? Or is it a thriller?" The answer, of course, is: Yes, yes, yes. "...the blood hits the wall like it always hits the wall."It seems impossible that, as he enters his sixth decade of publishing, the dean of dark fiction could add to his vast readership. But that is precisely what will happen...when the Dome drops.Now Go Read It. --Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck HoganvThe Story Behind the CoverClick on image to enlarge The jacket concept for Under the Dome originated as an ambitious idea from the mind of Stephen King. The artwork is a combination of photographs, illustration and 3-D rendering. This is a departure from the direction of King's most recent illustrated covers. In order to achieve the arresting image for this jacket, Scribner art director Rex Bonomelli had to seek out artists who could do a convincing job of creating a realistic portrayal of the town of Chester's Mill, the setting of the novel. Bonomelli found the perfect team of digital artists, based in South America and New York, whose cutting edge work had previously been devoted to advertisement campaigns. This was their first book jacket and an exciting venture for them. "They are used to working with the demands of corporate clients," says Bonomelli. "We gave them freedom and are thrilled with what they came up with." The CGI (computer generated imagery) enhanced image looks more like something made for the big screen than for the page and is sure to make a lasting impact on King fans. Meet the CharactersDale BarbaraBarbie, a drifter, ex-army, walks with a burden of guilt from the time he spent in Iraq. Working as a short-order cook at Sweetbriar Rose is the closest thing he’s had to a family life. When his old commander, Colonel Cox, calls from outside, Barbie's burden becomes the town itself.Julia ShumwayThe attractive Editor and Publisher of the local town newspaper, The Chester's Mill Democrat, Julia is self-assured and Republican to the core, but she is drawn to Barbie and discovers, when it matters most, that her most vulnerable moment might be her most liberating.Jim Rennie, Sr."Big Jim." A used car dealer with a fierce smile and no warmth, he'd given his heart to Jesus at age sixteen and had little left for his customers, his neighbors, or his dying wife and deteriorating son. The town's Second Selectman, he’s used to having things his way. He walks like a man who has spent his life kicking ass. Joseph McClatcheyScarecrow Joe, a 13-year-old also known as "King of the Geeks" and "Skeletor, a bona fide brain whose backpack bears the legend "fight the powers that be." He’s smarter than anyone, and proves it in a crisis. Chester's Mill, Maine (click on image to enlarge)From Publishers WeeklyKing's return to supernatural horror is uncomfortably bulky, formidably complex and irresistibly compelling. When the smalltown of Chester's Mill, Maine, is surrounded by an invisible force field, the people inside must exert themselves to survive. The situation deteriorates rapidly due to the dome's ecological effects and the machinations of Big Jim Rennie, an obscenely sanctimonious local politician and drug lord who likes the idea of having an isolated populace to dominate. Opposing him are footloose Iraq veteran Dale “Barbie” Barbara, newspaper editor Julia Shumway, a gaggle of teen skateboarders and others who want to solve the riddle of the dome. King handles the huge cast of characters masterfully but ruthlessly, forcing them to live (or not) with the consequences of hasty decisions. Readers will recognize themes and images from King's earlier fiction, and while this novel doesn't have the moral weight of, say, The Stand, nevertheless, it's a nonstop thrill ride as well as a disturbing, moving meditation on our capacity for good and evil.
