Atmospheric Flight in the Twentieth Century

All technologies differ from one another. They are as varied as humanity's interaction with the physical world. Even people attempting to do the same thing produce multiple technologies. For example, John H. White discovered more than l 1000 patents in the 19th century for locomotive smokestacks. Yet all technologies are processes by which humans seek to control their physical environment and bend nature to their purposes. All technologies are alike. The tension between likeness and difference runs through this collection of papers. All focus on atmospheric flight, a twentieth-century phenomenon. But they approach the topic from different disciplinary perspectives. They ask disparate questions. And they work from distinct agendas. Collectively they help to explain what is different about aviation - how it differs from other technologies and how flight itself has varied from one time and place to another. The importance of this topic is manifest. Flight is one of the defining technologies of the twentieth century. Jay David Bolter argues in Turing's Man that certain technologies in certain ages have had the power not only to transform society but also to shape the way in which people understand their relationship with the physical world. "A defining technology," says Bolter, "resembles a magnifying glass, which collects and focuses seemingly disparate ideas in a culture into one bright, sometimes piercing ray." 2 Flight has done that for the twentieth century.

For as long as Esmerine can remember, she has longed to join her older sister, Dosinia, as a siren--the highest calling a mermaid can have. When Dosinia runs away to the mainland, Esmerine is sent to retrieve her. Using magic to transform her tail into legs, she makes her way unsteadily to the capital city. There she comes upon a friend she hasn't seen since childhood--a dashing young man named Alandare, who belongs to a winged race of people. As Esmerine and Alandare band together to search for Dosinia, they rekindle a friendship . . . and ignite the emotions for a love so great, it cannot be bound by sea, land, or air.

Title : Twilight Memories
Author : Andreas Huyssen
Total pages: 302 pages
In this new collection of essays on memory and amnesia in the postmodern world, cultural critic Andreas Huyssen considers how nationalism, literature, art, politics, and the media are obsessed with the past. The great paradox of our fin-de-siecle culture is that novelty is even more associated with memory than with future expectation. Drawing heavily on the dilemmas of contemporary Germany, Huyssen's discussion of cultural memory illustrates the nature of contemporary nationalism, the work of such artists and thinkers as Anselm Kiefer, Alexander Kluge, and Jean Baudrillard, and many others. The book includes illustrations from contemporary Germany.

Laatste nacht in Twisted River

Total pages: N.A pages
In de kookruimte van een houthakkerskamp in het noorden van New Hampshire ziet een angstige jongen de vriendin van de plaatselijke politieman aan voor een beer. De gevolgen zijn desastreus en de jongen en zijn vader slaan op de vlucht. Hun omzwervingen brengen hen van Boston naar Vermont en Toronto, continu op de hielen gezeten door de onverbiddelijke politieman. Hun enige beschermer is een vrijheidsgezinde houthakker met wie ze vriendschap sluiten. John Irving vertelt in zijn twaalfde roman een verhaal dat vijf decennia omspant. Het is geschreven met dezelfde historische authenticiteit en emotionele zeggingskracht als De regels van het ciderhuis en Bidden wij voor Owen Meany, en het is net zo krachtig en meeslepend als De wereld volgens Garp. De laatste nacht in Twisted River vormt een nieuw hoogtepunt in het oeuvre van John Irving, de absolute meesterverteller.
