Revolutionary Acts: Amateur Theater and the Soviet State, 1917-1938

by Lynn Mally

During the Russian Revolution and Civil War, amateur theater groups sprang up in cities across the country. Workers, peasants, students, soldiers, and sailors provided entertainment ranging from improvisations to gymnastics and from propaganda sketches to the plays of Chekhov. In Revolutionary Acts, Lynn Mally reconstructs the history of the amateur stage in Soviet Russia from 1917 to the height of the Stalinist purges. Her book illustrates in fascinating detail how Soviet culture was transformed during the new regime's first two decades in power.Of all the arts, theater had a special appeal for mass audiences in Russia, and with the coming of the revolution it took on an important role in the dissemination of the new socialist culture. Mally's analysis of amateur theater as a space where ...

Enigmatic Divine Comedy

by L. A. Braun

Enjoy this stunning exploration of Leonardo Da Vinci's secret number '26' and REBUS in relation to the epic saga 'Divine Comedy.' This book walks the reader through the realms of the unseen supernatural world in the highly-revered poem of the ‘Divine Comedy.’ Originally penned in the early 1300’s A.D., it had been an account of Dante’s personal journey into the supernatural world. Along the way we deliberate on the relevance of Leonardo Da Vinci’s secrets—primarily the number ’26’ and rebus—to the related artwork. We leave no rock unturned in respect to our search for the meaning of Da Vinci’s secrets. This book is an enthralling spellbinder tracing the hidden number ‘26’ and rebus (pictures used for words) all over the finest artwork and illustrations for the 'Divi...

The Vikings

by James Tyrell

The Viking reputation is of bloodthirsty seafaring warriors, repeatedly plundering the British Isles and the North Atlantic throughout the early Middle Ages. Yet Vikings were also traders, settlers and farmers, with complex artistic and linguistic culture.

James Tyrell reveals the Viking world in its entirety: their history, society and culture, and their expansion overseas for trade, colonization, and plunder. Tyrell cuts through the myths to provide new insights into their rune stones, ships and religion. His book takes us to new discoveries in Scandinavia, Iceland and Greenland, while examining contemporary Viking re-enactment groups, Nazi-sponsored excavations, and DNA testing for elusive Viking blood, leading to a fascinating re-appraisal of the meaning of the term 'Vikin...

Novels, Readers, and Reviewers: Responses to Fiction in Antebellum America

by Nina Baym

This book describes and characterizes responses of American readers to fiction in the generation before the Civil War. It is based on close examination of the reviews of all novels—both American and European—that appeared in major American periodicals during the years 1840–1860, a period in which magazines, novels, and novel reviews all proliferated. Nina Baym makes uses of the reviews to gain information about the formal, aesthetic, and moral expectations of reviewers. Her major conclusion is that the accepted view about the American novel before the Civil War—the view that the atmosphere in America was hostile to fiction—is a myth. There is compelling evidence, she shows, for the existence of a veritable novel industry and, concomitantly, a vast audience for fiction in the 1840...

The Diary of American Exceptionalism: Pivotal Events in American History 1783 - 2019

by Alan Sewell

“American Exceptionalism” has become a commonly heard expression in recent political discussions. It has many connotations, some of which may be perceived as chauvinistic by the politically correct.

What does it really mean?

Perhaps the best way to understand it is to hear the words of those Americans who MADE us such an exceptional nation through their exceptional courage to do what was difficult and right, rather than easy and expedient, during our most trying times.

This book isn’t a rehash of those famous phrases like “Give me Liberty, or give me Death!” Rather, it is intended to reveal the thoughts of our leaders during their most discouraging moments.

They’re the words of George Washington, frustrated by the petty qua...

LSAT IntelliPREP: Effective Preparatory Practices to Ace LSAT

by Intelligent+

The LSAT is approved by the American Bar Association and uses three kinds of questions for measuring your skills viz. verbal reasoning, analytical thinking, and critical reading. Is the test really hard? Well, the easier the LSAT test is, the better your scores will be. In the case of LSAT, if you score 180, it is equivalent to getting 99.97 percent. However, in the LSAT, getting 89 correct answers is considered as a good score. It also indicates that LSAT is a tough test, generally speaking. LSAT is scored on a scale of 120 to 180, and the average score is 150. However, in case you are looking to get admitted into the top twenty-five law schools in the United States, you will have to score in excess of 160. There are around 101 questions in every test, and every query answered correctly m...

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...
