The Imposture and Other Tales
53,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A complete collection of all the short stories by John Pascal, some related, some not, about people and events in places around the world; stories of passion and pathos, love and hatred, vengeance and intrigue - in short 'the human condition'- which reveal the well-traveled John Pascal's intimacy with those places and with the men and women, and even the animals who inhabit them. John Pascal is a master at portraying irony - as in 'Digger Malloy,' the story of a man who unwittingly has a bizarre encounter with his estranged daughter. The conclusion to this story will astound you, for Pascal also is adept at producing the surprise ending. Another example of this ability is found in his prize-winning tale 'A Fragile Vessel' where, as described in London's The European, '...at a Sicilian villa dark secrets bubble to the surface, ending an old friendship for ever.' Follow the travels, adventures, mishaps, and intimacies of Desi Guerrero and his beautiful wife Sandy in three contiguous stories as they explore what Evelyn Waugh once called 'that splendid enclosure' - the Mediterranean basin. 'The Maine Coon Cat and the Tiger Snake,' a tale in which a man seeks revenge from his late wife's lover, is a lesson in the emotions of love and hatred. This clever tale has an unforgettable climax, at the center of which is a gifted feline. 'The Lakonia ' and its sequel 'Tancredi' provide thrilling suspense and intrigue which while evocative of such venerable masters as E. Phillips Oppenheim and Eric Ambler are presented in the present-day world of international affairs and intrigue. The collection includes 'The Imposture,' a tour de force which demonstrates the entire panoply of Pascal's powerful writing talents. You won't know whether or not you believe what you have read in 'The Imposture'; what you will know is that you'll want to read more stories by John Pascal. John Pascal is determined to reinstate the short story to its proper place in English literature. This, his latest collection of such stories, is proof that he has every chance of doing so.

The Peoples of Sicily: A Multicultural Legacy
35,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Can the eclectic medieval history of the world's most conquered island be a lesson for our times? Home to Normans, Byzantines, Arabs, Germans and Jews, 12th-century Sicily was a crossroads of cultures and faiths, the epitome of diversity. Here Europe, Asia and Africa met, with magical results. Bilingualism was the norm, women's rights were defended, and the environment was protected. Literacy among Sicilians soared; it was higher during this ephemeral golden age than it was seven centuries later. But this book is about more than Sicily. It is a singular, enduring lesson in the way multicultural diversity can be encouraged, with the result being a prosperous society. While its focus is the civilizations that flourished during the island's multicultural medieval period from 1060 to 1260, most of Sicily's complex history to the end of the Middle Ages is outlined. Idrisi is mentioned, but so is Archimedes. Introductory background chapters begin in the Neolithic, continuing to the history of the contested island under Punics and Greeks. Every civilization that populated the island is covered, including Romans, Goths, Vandals, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Germans, Angevins, Aragonese and Jews, with profiles of important historical figures and sites. Religion, law, geography and cuisine are also considered. The authors' narrative is interesting but never pedantic, intended for the general reader rather than the expert in anthropology, theology, art or architecture. They are not obsessed with arcane terminology, and they don't advocate a specific agenda or world view. Here two erudite scholars take their case to the people. Yes, this book actually sets forth the entirety of ancient and medieval Sicilian history from the earliest times until around 1500, and it presents a few nuggets of the authors' groundbreaking research in medieval manuscripts. Unlike most authors who write in English about Sicily, perhaps visiting the island for brief research trips, these two are actually based in Sicily, where their work appears on a popular website. Sicily aficionados will be familiar with their writings, which have been read by some ten million during the last five years, far eclipsing the readership of any other historians who write about Sicily. Alio and Mendola are the undisputed, international 'rock stars' of Sicilian historical writing, with their own devoted fan base. Every minute of the day somebody is reading their online articles. This is a great book for anybody who is meeting Sicily for the first time, the most significant 'general' history of the island published in fifty years and certainly one of the most eloquent. It has a detailed chronology, a useful reading list, and a brief guide suggesting places to visit. The book's structure facilitates its use as a ready reference. It would have run to around 600 pages, instead of 368 (on archival-quality, acid-free paper), were it not for the slightly smaller print of the appendices, where the chronology, the longest Sicilian timeline ever published, is 20 pages long. Unlike most histories of Sicily, the approach to this one is multifaceted and multidisciplinary. In what may be a milestone in Sicilian historiography, a section dedicated to population genetics explains how Sicily's historic diversity is reflected in its plethora of haplogroups. Here medieval Sicily is viewed as an example of a tolerant, multicultural society and perhaps even a model. It is an unusually inspiring message. One reader was moved to tears as she read the preface. Can a book change our view of cultures and perhaps even the way we look at history? This one just might. Meet the peoples!

Elementary Italian (Revised First Edition, Color)
77,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Elementary Italian teaches Italian vocabulary, grammar, and culture in units centering on practical, engaging themes. The progression of the material is tried and tested, and begins with an introductory lesson on the alphabet and pronunciation, greetings and salutations, numbers, days of the week, and months of the year. Topics such as the family, the city, leisure activities, health, and the home present useful, everyday vocabulary and language in familiar contexts, making it easy for students to relate to the target language and practice applying it. As students advance through the text they learn several verb tenses: the simple present, the imperative, the present perfect, gerunds, and the present progressive. Other grammatical structures include pronouns, comparatives and superlatives, and prepositions. In addition to the language, the text also teaches students about aspects of Italian culture including Italian cuisine, the school system, fashion, and politics and government. Each section on culture includes authentic materials, providing students with exposure to the Italian language as it is used by native speakers. Student friendly and extensively class-tested, Elementary Italian was written for college-level beginning Italian courses, and is designed for classes that meet three days a week over a fifteen week semester, but can easily be adapted to a quarter system. Jessica Greenfield earned bachelor's degrees in Italian studies and Classical Civilizations at the University of California, Berkeley, her master's degree in Italian Studies at the University of Notre Dame, and her Ph.D. in Romance Languages, with a specialization in Italian, at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Dr. Greenfield is a faculty member in the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of North Texas, where she also serves as the Italian Language Program Coordinator. The author of numerous articles, reviews, and textbook contributions, she has also presented at regional and national conferences. Her research interests include modern Italian literature, Sicilian writers, and the Italian realist writer Giovanni Verga.
