代理商:大苹果 HOPE LIES IN THE PROLES: GEORGE ORWELL AND THE LEFT

页数: 210 定价: 0 美元 上传日期: 2018-5-17

中文概要: 乔治•奥威尔是二十世纪左派最重要的文学人物之一。虽然《1984》《动物庄园》和《对加泰罗尼亚的敬意》仍然被认为是现代经典著作,但他自己的政治却没有得到很好的理解。“本书对奥威尔的政治思想以及它持续的意义进行了同情而深刻的批判。作者探索了奥威尔政治的各个方面,详述了奥威尔改变工人阶级意识的尝试,探讨了他对工人阶级的态度到底是浪漫的、现实的还是出于一种恩惠——或者在不同的阶段是不同的态度。他还质疑奥威尔的反法西斯是否被他对苏联的批评所掩盖,并探讨了他与工党的矛盾关系。作者也对奥威尔关于美国问题的观点以及他与进步左派和女权主义的关系进行了突破性的探讨。”着眼于对奥威尔的持久兴趣以及他对当前政治进程的影响,本书是一次独特而细致入微的尝试,以证明奥威尔一直到去世之际都是一个坚定的社会主义者。(LYR)


中文概要: George Orwell was one of the most significant literary figures on the left in the twentieth century. While titles such as 1984, Animal Farm and Homage to Catalonia are still rightly regarded as modern classics, his own politics are less well understood.’Hope Lies in the Proles offers a sympathetic yet critical account of Orwell’s political thinking and its continued significance today. John Newsinger explores various aspects of Orwell’s politics, detailing Orwell’s attempts to change working-class consciousness, considering whether his attitude towards the working class was romantic, realistic or patronising - or all three at different times. He also asks whether Orwell’s anti-fascism was eclipsed by his criticism of the Soviet Union, and explores his ambivalent relationship with the Labour Party. Newsinger also breaks important new ground regarding Orwell’s shifting views on the USA, and his relationship with the progressive Left and feminism. ’Focusing on the enduring interest in Orwell and his influence on current political causes, the book is ultimately a unique, nuanced attempt to demonstrate that Orwell remained a committed socialist up until his death.


作者介绍: John Newsinger,巴斯泉大学的近代史教授。他著有十多本书书,其中包括《希望在无产者》(Pkuto,2018),图画小说《1917:俄罗斯红年》(Bookmarks,2016),《英国反叛乱》(Palgrave,2015),《鲜血未干:大英帝国人民史》(Bookmarks,2006)。

John Newsinger is Professor of Modern History at Bath Spa University. He is the author of over a dozen books, including Hope Lies in the Proles (Pluto, 2018), the graphic novel 1917: Russia’s Red Year (Bookmarks, 2016), British Counterinsurgency (Palgrave, 2015), and The Blood Never Dried: A People’s History of the British Empire (Bookmarks, 2006).

代理商:大苹果 THE HAYWIRE HEART: HOW TOO MUCH EXERCISE CAN KILL YOU, AND WHAT YOU CAN DO TO PROTECT YOUR HEART

页数: 320 定价: 0 美元 上传日期: 2018-4-27

中文概要:


中文概要: Too much exercise can kill you. The Haywire Heart is the first book to examine heart conditions in athletes.

Intended for anyone who competes in endurance sports like cycling, triathlon, running races of all distances, and cross-country skiing, The Haywire Heart presents the evidence that going too hard or too long can damage your heart forever. You’ll find what to watch out for, what to do about it, and how to protect your heart so you can enjoy the sports you love for years to come. The Haywire Heart shares the developing research into a group of conditions known as “athlete’s heart”, starting with a wide-ranging look at the warning signs, symptoms, and how to recognize your potential risk. Leading cardiac electrophysiologist and masters athlete Dr. John Mandrola explores the prevention and treatment of heart conditions in athletes like arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation and flutter, tachycardia, hypertrophy, and coronary artery disease. He reviews new research about exercise intensity and duration, recovery, inflammation and calcification, and the ways athletes inflict lasting harm. These heart problems are appearing with alarming frequency among masters athletes who are pushing their bodies harder than ever in the hope that exercise will keep them healthy and strong into their senior years. The book is complete with gripping case studies of elite and age-group athletes from journalist Chris Case―like the scary condition that nearly killed cyclist and coauthor Lennard Zinn―and includes a frank discussion of exercise addiction and the mental habits that prevent athletes from seeking medical help when they need it. Dr. Mandrola explains why many doctors misdiagnose heart conditions in athletes and offers an invaluable guide on how to talk with your doctor about your condition and its proven treatments. He covers known heart irritants, training and rest modifications, effective medicines, and safe supplements that can reduce the likelihood of heart damage from exercise. Heart conditions affect hardcore athletes as well as those who take up sports seeking better health and weight loss. The Haywire Heart is a groundbreaking and critically important guide to heart care for athletes. By protecting your heart now and watching for the warning signs, you can avoid crippling heart conditions and continue to exercise and compete for years to come.


作者介绍: Chris Case is the managing editor of VeloNews, and author of “Cycling to Extremes,” the groundbreaking VeloNews story that brought the problem of the athlete’s heart to widespread attention.

Dr. John Mandrola is a cardiac electrophysiologist in Louisville, Kentucky, and is himself an active cyclist who had atrial fibrillation.

Lennard Zinn was a member of the U.S. national racing team and is a lifelong endurance athlete. He has reported on major stories for VeloNews for 30 years and is the author of the world’s best-selling guide to bicycle maintenance and repair.

 
 
代理商:大苹果 EDGE OF IRONY: MODERNISM IN THE SHADOW OF THE HABSBURG EMPIRE

页数: 240 定价: 0 美元 上传日期: 2018-4-12

中文概要: 在奥匈帝国的多元文化和多语言世界中涌现的杰出作家和思想家中,有约瑟夫•罗斯、罗伯特•穆西尔和路德维希•维特根斯坦。对他们来说,第一次世界大战的创伤包括他们出生的地理实体的突然丧失: 1918年,帝国在一夜之间瓦解,使奥地利成为一个小而脆弱的共和国,在希特勒的第三帝国吞并前,它只会持续20年。在对欧洲现代主义的重大反思中,马乔里•佩洛夫指出并探索了从维也纳和其他哈布斯堡王朝的废墟中浮现出来的美学世界——一种“奥斯特现代主义”,它产生了一大批戏剧、小说、诗歌和自传。珀洛夫探索了从卡尔•克劳斯的戏剧《人类的最后岁月》和《伊莱亚斯•卡内蒂的回忆录》到路德维希•维特根斯坦的笔记和保罗•赛兰的抒情诗。她表明奥特斯现代主义文学特征是现代主义的形式和技术发明,是我们熟悉工作的乔伊斯和英镑,是达达主义和未来主义,而不是一个传统的表面之下的激进的讽刺,急性的流放,感性比这更色情和不切实际的德国人。持怀疑态度和幻想破灭的现代主义倾向于提出问题而不是给出答案。(WYL)


中文概要: Among the brilliant writers and thinkers who emerged from the multicultural and multilingual world of the Austro-Hungarian Empire were Joseph Roth, Robert Musil, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. For them, the trauma of World War I included the sudden loss of the geographical entity into which they had been born: in 1918, the empire was dissolved overnight, leaving Austria a small, fragile republic that would last only twenty years before being annexed by Hitler’s Third Reich. In this major reconsideration of European modernism, Marjorie Perloff identifies and explores the aesthetic world that emerged from the rubble of Vienna and other former Habsburg territories--an "Austro-Modernism" that produced a major body of drama, fiction, poetry, and autobiography. Perloff explores works ranging from Karl Kraus’s drama The Last Days of Mankind and Elias Canetti’s memoir The Tongue Set Free to Ludwig Wittgenstein’s notebooks and Paul Celan’s lyric poetry. Throughout, she shows that Austro-Modernist literature is characterized less by the formal and technical inventions of a modernism familiar to us in the work of A Joyce and Pound, Dada and Futurism, than by a radical irony beneath a seemingly conventional surface, an acute sense of exile, and a sensibility more erotic and quixotic than that of its German contemporaries. Skeptical and disillusioned, Austro-Modernism prefers to ask questions rather than formulate answers.


作者介绍: 马乔里•佩洛夫是来自斯坦福大学的英国荣誉退职教授和南加州大学的弗洛伦斯•斯科特教授。她是许多书的作者,包括最近的《诗学》,这是一个新的关键和非原创的天才,也由芝加哥大学出版社出版。

Marjorie Perloff is professor of English emerita at Stanford University and the Florence R. Scott Professor of English Emerita at the University of Southern California. She is the author of many books, including, most recently, Poetics in a New Key and Unoriginal Genius, also published by the University of Chicago Press.

代理商:大苹果 IL N’Y A PAS D’IDENTITé CULTURELLE (CULTURAL IDENTITY DOES NOT EXIST)

页数: 104 定价: 0 美元 上传日期: 2016-10-31

中文概要:


中文概要: La prochaine campagne électorale en France, nous annonce-ton, tournera autour de l’identité culturelle. Autour de ces questions : ne faut-il pas défendre l’ « identité culturelle » de la France contre la menace des communautarismes ? Où placer le curseur entre la tolérance et l’intégration, l’acceptation des différences et la revendication identitaire ?

Ce débat traverse l’Europe entière ; il concerne, plus généralement, le rapport des cultures entre elles en régime de mondialisation. Or on se trompe ici de concepts : il ne peut être question de « différences », isolant les cultures, mais d’écarts maintenant en regard et promouvant entre eux du commun ; ni non plus d’ « identité », puisque le propre de la culture est de muter et de se transformer, mais de fécondités ou ce que j’appellerai des ressources. L’auteur ne défends donc pas une identité culturelle française impossible à identifier, mais des ressources culturelles françaises (européennes) – « défendre » signifiant alors non pas tant les protéger que les exploiter. Car s’il est entendu que de telles ressources naissent en un milieu et dans un paysage, elles sont ensuite disponibles à tous et n’appartiennent pas. Elles ne sont pas exclusives, comme le sont des « valeurs » ; elles ne se prônent pas, ne se « prêchent » pas, mais on les déploie ou l’on ne les déploie pas, et de cela chacun est responsable. Un tel déplacement conceptuel obligeait, en amont, à redéfinir ces trois termes rivaux : l’universel, l’uniforme, le commun, pour les sortir de leur équivoque. En aval, à repenser le « dia-logue » des cultures : dia de l’écart et du cheminement ; logos du commun de l’intelligible.

à se tromper de concepts, on s’enlisera dans un faux débat, donc qui d’avance est sans issue.

代理商:大苹果 GOD, FAITH & IDENTITY FROM THE ASHES: REFLECTIONS OF CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN OF HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS

页数: 352 定价: 25 美元 上传日期: 2016-1-13

中文概要:


中文概要: A Powerful, Life-Affirming New Perspective on the Holocaust

Almost ninety children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors—theologians, scholars, spiritual leaders, authors, artists, political and community leaders and media personalities—from sixteen countries on six continents reflect on how the memories transmitted to them have affected their lives. Profoundly personal stories explore faith, identity and legacy in the aftermath of the Holocaust as well as our role in ensuring that future genocides and similar atrocities never happen again.

There have been many books and studies about children of Holocaust survivors—the so-called second and third generations—with a psycho-social focus. This book is different. It is intended to reflect what they believe, who they are and how that informs what they have done and are doing with their lives.

From major religious or intellectual explorations to shorter commentaries on experiences, quandaries and cultural, political and personal affirmations, contributors respond to this question: how have your parents’ and grandparents’ experiences and examples helped shape your identity and your attitudes toward God, faith, Judaism, the Jewish people and the world as a whole?

For people of all faiths and backgrounds, these powerful and deeply moving statements will have a profound effect on the way our and future generations understand and shape their understanding of the Holocaust.


作者介绍: Menachem Z. Rosensaft, who was born in the Displaced Persons camp of Bergen-Belsen, is general counsel of the World Jewish Congress, and teaches about the law of genocide and war crimes trials at the law schools of Columbia and Cornell Universities. Appointed to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council by Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, he is founding chairman of the International Network of Children of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, senior vice president of the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors and Their Descendants and a past president of Park Avenue Synagogue in New York City.

Nobel Peace Prize laureate Elie Wiesel, who survived Auschwitz and Buchenwald, has been the preeminent voice of conscience and Holocaust memory throughout the seven decades since the end of World War II. In 1984, Professor Wiesel delivered the keynote address at the First International Conference of Children of Holocaust Survivors in New York City, and he has graciously allowed us to publish excerpts from that address as his charge to the post-Holocaust generations as we explore who we are, what we believe and what we stand for in the pages of this book.

One of the great spiritual seekers, Rebbe Nachman of Breslov (1772–1810) is among the most often quoted of the Hasidic masters. Even after two centuries, his teachings have a potent, meaningful message: Never lose hope; find joy and cause for happiness in everything that happens to you.

“Always remember:
joy is not merely incidental
to your spiritual quest.
It is vital.”
Rebbe Nachman of Breslov
1772–1810

To some, Rebbe Nachman is best known for stories that possess profound depth and speak to the very soul. To others, his teachings shed light on some of life’s deepest mysteries. Now, as before, he speaks to a spiritually seeking generation in strong and uplifting ways.Teacher, guide and spiritual master, Rebbe Nachman provides vital words of inspiration for life today.

With timeless insight and wisdom, Rebbe Nachman shows us how to fill the empty chair―the alienated self―by leaving sadness and finding hope and joy.

代理商:大苹果 THE NEW NORMAL: FINDING A BALANCE BETWEEN INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS AND THE COMMON GOOD

页数: 418 定价: 0 美元 上传日期: 2014-11-26

中文概要: 阿米塔伊•艾奇奥尼认为社会必须找到方法来平衡个人权利和公共利益。这个平衡点可能会随着新技术的发展,自然环境和国际环境的变化以及新的社会力量的出现而发生改变。

一些人认为,美国可能过分欺骗了理应得到更好保护的个人权利。具体而言,媒体不应该得到更多的保护吗?还是它发布国家机密的权利要被限制?对美国人和其他人的限制应该被剥夺吗?美国的恐怖分子应该被不同对待吗?如何回答这些问题,艾奇奥尼表示,还有一个更大的根本性的问题:权利和安全之间的最佳平衡点是什么?

艾奇奥尼借鉴了社会哲学,“自由主义的社群主义”。其关键假设是,无论是个人权利还是公共利益都应该被特许,这两者都是核心价值,而且他们之间的平衡是必要的。艾奇奥尼认为,我们需要为自己对物质,服务和财富的追求寻找新的平衡,特别是因为可能经济增长会依然缓慢以及工作依旧没有活力。关键的问题是如何才会有好的生活,尤其是那些基本需求需要得到满足的人。(LNL)


中文概要: Amitai Etzioni argues that societies must find a way to balance individual rights and the common good. This point of balance may change as new technologies develop, the natural and international environments change, and new social forces arise.

Some believe the United States may be unduly shortchanging individual rights that need to be better protected. Specifically, should the press be granted more protection? Or should its ability to publish state secrets be limited? Should surveillance of Americans and others be curtailed? Should American terrorists be treated differently from others? How one answers these questions, Etzioni shows, invites a larger fundamental question: Where is the proper point of balance between rights and security?

Etzioni implements the social philosophy, “liberal communitarianism.” Its key assumptions are that neither individual rights nor the common good should be privileged, that both are core values, and that a balance is necessary between them. Etzioni argues that we need to find a new balance between our desire for more goods, services, and affluence, particularly because economic growth may continue to be slow and jobs anemic. The key question is what makes a good life, especially for those whose basic needs are sated.


作者介绍: 阿米塔伊•艾奇奥尼是乔治华盛顿大学的国际事务领域的教授。他曾是卡特白宫的高级顾问;曾任教于哥伦比亚大学,哈佛大学和加州大学伯克利分校;并担任美国社会学协会主席。
