Book Summary :

«Соловей» — стихотворение, автором которого является известный поэт-футурист Игорь Васильевич Северянин (1887–1941). Аллегорический смысл «Соловья» заключается в противопоставлении реальной жизни фантастическому миру грез. Среди поэтических шедевров И. Северянина — сборники «Классические розы», «Литавры солнца», «Ананасы в шампанском», «Медальоны», «Поэзоантракт», «Менестрель», «Миррэлия» и «Ручьи в лилиях». Один из ярчайших представителей поэзии Серебряного века, Игорь Северянин прошел путь от основателя кружка эгофутуристов до самостоятельного лирического гения.

Book Summary :

An instant #1 New York Times bestseller (February 2018)! "A TOUR DE FORCE." —Kirkus (starred review) Alaska, 1974. Unpredictable. Unforgiving. Untamed. For a family in crisis, the ultimate test of survival. Ernt Allbright, a former POW, comes home from the Vietnam war a changed and volatile man. When he loses yet another job, he makes an impulsive decision: he will move his family north, to Alaska, where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier. Thirteen-year-old Leni, a girl coming of age in a tumultuous time, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, dares to hope that a new land will lead to a better future for her family. She is desperate for a place to belong. Her mother, Cora, will do anything and go anywhere for the man she loves, even if means following him into the unknown. At first, Alaska seems to be the answer to their prayers. In a wild, remote corner of the state, they find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the Allbrights’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources. But as winter approaches and darkness descends on Alaska, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates and the family begins to fracture. Soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within. In their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own. In the wild, there is no one to save them but themselves. In this unforgettable portrait of human frailty and resilience, Kristin Hannah reveals the indomitable character of the modern American pioneer and the spirit of a vanishing Alaska—a place of incomparable beauty and danger. The Great Alone is a daring, beautiful, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss, the fight for survival, and the wildness that lives in both man and nature.

Book Summary :

Что чувствует женщина, услышав однажды от мужа: «Я тебя больше не люблю»? Шок, обида, гнев, растерянность — все это разрывает на части душу Джолин, сорокалетней матери двух дочерей, любящей жены, до последнего момента считавшей супруга образцовым и преданным... А тут еще и старшая дочь-подросток стала неуправляемой — по любому поводу спорит с матерью, критикует ее. Что поделаешь — трудный возраст. Случайно услышав ту самую фатальную фразу, брошенную отцом, дочь обвиняет в крушении семьи не его, а мать. Справиться с такими проблемами нелегко любой женщине. И они вовсе не кажутся мельче при взгляде из поднебесья: Джолин — пилот военного вертолета. Судьба приготовила для нее еще несколько тяжелейших испытаний, преодолеть которые можно только рука об руку с близкими.

Book Summary :

A treasure trove of photographs—some never before reproduced in book form—from the two greatest Antarctic expeditions. Among the greatest achievements in the history of photography, those of the early polar explorers surely stand out, for the beauty of their images and the almost impossible conditions they encountered. And none of these are more remarkable than the photographs recorded by the official chroniclers of two epic Antarctic expeditions—that of Robert Falcon Scott, departed in 1910, which tragically resulted in his death; and, four years later, that of Ernest Shackleton, whose heroic sea journey from Elephant Island to South Georgia has become the stuff of legend. Their photographers—Herbert George Ponting and Frank Hurley—transported bulky cameras and glass plate negatives across the forbidding polar landscape to record some of the earliest images of this dramatic environment. That the photographs survived to be presented on their return to King George V is miraculous, and they have remained ever since in the Royal Collection. The Heart of the Great Alone reproduces the best of these marvelous images, some of which have never appeared in book form before—ships encased in ice floes, ice cliffs and ravines, campsites and dog sleds, and the incomparable beauty of Antarctic flora and fauna. Together they form an invaluable record of an environment that global warming has forever changed. With a superb narrative drawing on Ponting’s and Hurley’s writings and other unique archival material from the Royal Collection, and with extended captions for each image, this book is a unique addition to the literature of polar exploration.

Book Summary :

A college education becomes truly meaningful when faith affects what happens in the classroom every day. According to David Dockery and Timothy George, it’s only by stepping into the great tradition of Christian thinking that students can take hold of the true power of their education. They demonstrate that vibrant, world-changing Christianity is not anti-intellectual; instead, it assumes a long tradition of vigorous Christian thinking and a commitment to the integration of faith and scholarship as essential to the preparation of a next generation of leaders in the church, the academy, and the world. As the first volume in a new series, this book introduces an approach to the Christian tradition that is not simply historical overview, but will also help students engage with contemporary challenges to their faith in various academic fields. This reader-friendly guidebook shows how to address those challenges by reclaiming the best of the Christian intellectual tradition. With illustrations, reflection questions, and a list of resources for further study, this book is sure to be a timely tool in the hands of believing students in both Christian and secular universities. Part of the Reclaiming the Christian Intellectual Tradition series.

Book Summary :

Shortly after 5:00 P.M. On Wednesday, May 27, 1896, a Herculean tornado shattered the St. Louis Area. Within twenty minutes, 137 people had perished in St. Louis, with 118 dead across the river in East St. Louis. Along a ten-mile swath of devastation, the tornado destroyed 311 buildings, heavily damaged 7,200 others and caused significant harm to 1,300 more. Even today, that powerful cyclone of a century ago "remains the single deadliest incident to befall the St. Louis area," according to Tim O’Neil of the St.Louis Post-Dispatch, who wrote the foreword for this historic reprint of a book originally published by the Cyclone Publishing Company. Heavily illustrated by photographs of the damage, The Great Cyclone was compiled from stories in the city’s daily newspapers—the Globe-Democrat, the Post-Dispatch, and, most notably, the old St. Louis Republic. O’Neil points out that "the book’s compilers are not identified, but their glowing praise of the ‘superb descriptive composition’ in the Republic provides a good guess about where most of them worked."

Book Summary :

Древний Рим — тема всеобщего интереса, опыты знакомства с его образами и историей сопровождают нас в науках, литературе, искусстве. Но насколько близки к реальности наши представления о той эпохе? Книга Мэри Бирд, одного из ведущих мировых специалистов по древней истории, неизбежно изменит многие из них. Сенат и народ, Цицерон и Катилина, Ганнибал, Цезарь, Клеопатра, Август и Нерон... Описывая взаимоотношения власти и человека, политическое устройство и конфликты, становление государственности и империи, знаменитых и никому не известных римлян, автор обрушивает множество мифов, заставляет по иному взглянуть на многие события давней истории. Здесь есть все лучшее, что читатель может найти в научно-популярной литературе: глубокие и всесторонние знания о предмете, великолепный язык рассказчика, умение передать пульс повседневной жизни. Читая о далеком прошлом, мы сопереживаем ему так, словно читаем блог самого Цицерона, словно играем в кости в помпейском трактире.

Book Summary :

The definitive account of the 1918 Flu Epidemic. "Monumental"-Chicago Tribune. At the height of WWI, history’s most lethal influenza virus erupted in an army camp in Kansas, moved east with American troops, then exploded, killing as many as 100 million people worldwide. It killed more people in twenty-four months than AIDS killed in twenty-four years, more in a year than the Black Death killed in a century. But this was not the Middle Ages, and 1918 marked the first collision of science and epidemic disease. Magisterial in its breadth of perspective and depth of research and now revised to reflect the growing danger of the avian flu, The Great Influenza is ultimately a tale of triumph amid tragedy, which provides us with a precise and sobering model as we confront the epidemics looming on our own horizon. John M. Barry has written a new afterword for this edition that brings us up to speed on the terrible threat of the avian flu and suggest ways in which we might head off another flu pandemic.
