Dark Water – Caro Ramsay

Gepost op 27 februari 2013 – 23:50 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

Dark Water by Caro Ramsay is the third in the Anderson and Costello series. They call him Mr Click . . . A bitterly cold February in Glasgow. Hanging from a rope in the attic of a deserted tenement is the body of a criminal believed hiding out on the Costa del Sol these last ten years. His face has been hideously disfigured. Investigating officers DI Anderson and DS Costello believe the dead man to be a suspect in a decade-old case: the rape and attempted murder of a young student. And there are other, similar cases on file. But what has happened to the dead man's accomplice, 'Mr Click'? Then with the discovery of another young woman who was brutally attacked, detectives Anderson and Costello realise that this terrifying psychopath has started working once more. They must use every trick in the book to stop him. For Mr Click has developed a taste for killing. And to satisfy his lust he will kill again and again . . . Reissued with a stunning new package, Caro Ramsay's Anderson & Costello thrillers have been widely recognised as one of the most significant new series in the genre in recent years and Ramsay's utterly unique investigators are ready to become the nation's favourite Scottish cop duo. Absolution is the amazing opening to this stunning series. Subsequent titles include Dark Water and Singing to the Dead. Fans of Ian Rankin and Val McDermid will love this series. Praise for Caro Ramsay: 'Brilliant in twisting the tension tauter with each page' Guardian 'Ramsay handles her characters with aplomb, the dialogue crackles and the search for the killer has surprising twists and turns' Observer 'Many shivers in store for readers, followed by a shattering climax' The Times Caro Ramsay was born in Glasgow and now lives in a village on the west coast of Scotland. Absolution is her first novel, which was shortlisted for the CWA's New Blood Dagger for best debut of the year. This success was followed by two further DI Anderson and DS Costello novels,…

The Portable Henry Rollins – Henry Rollins

Gepost op 27 februari 2013 – 23:50 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

Henry Rollins is an artist whose legendary, no-holds-barred performances encompasses music, acting, and written and spoken word.  As Details magazine said when it named Rollins the 1994 Man of the Year: "through two decades of rage and discipline, Henry Rollins has transformed himself from an L.A. punk rocker into a universal soldier.  His enemies: slackers and hypocrites.  His mission: to steel your soul and rock your world." Rollins was frontman for the seminal punk band Black Flag, and since 1987 has led the Rollins Band, whose ninth album, Come In and Burn , was just released by DreamWorks. As a spoken-word artist, he regularly performs at colleges and theaters worldwide and has released eight spoken-word audiotapes.  His album Get in the Van won the Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for 1995.  As an actor, he has appeared in The Chase, Johnny Mnemonic, Heat , and David Lynch’s forthcoming film, Lost Highway .   From his days as front man for the band Black Flag and the current Rollins Band to his books and spoken-word audiotapes, Henry Rollins is the music, the attitude, and the voice that takes no prisoners.  In his twelve books, he has led us on a hallucinatory journey through the decades–and his mind–with poems, essays, short stories, diary entries, and rants that exist at "the frayed edges where reality ends and imagination begins" (Publishers Weekly).  For the first time, the best of his legendary, no-holds-barred writings are available.  This collection includes new photos and works from such seminal Rollins books as: High Adventure in the Great Outdoors Art to Choke Hearts Bang! Black Coffee Blues Get in the Van Do I Come Here Often? Solipsist Plus never before released stories and more… From the Trade Paperback edition.

The Politics of Breastfeeding – Gabrielle Palmer

Gepost op 27 februari 2013 – 23:50 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

As revealing as  Freakonomics , shocking as  Fast Food Nation and thought provoking as  No Logo ,  The Politics of Breastfeeding  exposes infant feeding as one of the most important public health issues of our time. Every thirty seconds a baby dies from infections due to a lack of breastfeeding and the use of bottles, artificial milks and other risky products. In her powerful book Gabrielle Palmer describes how big business uses subtle techniques to pressure parents to use alternatives to breastmilk. The infant feeding product companies’ thirst for profit systematically undermines mothers’ confidence in their ability to breastfeed their babies.  An essential and inspirational eye-opener,  The Politics of Breastfeeding  challenges our complacency about how we feed our children and radically reappraises a subject which concerns not only mothers, but everyone: man or woman, parent or childless, old or young. 3rd fully revised and updated edition. "This book is the most profound exploration of the global and personal costs of artificial feeding I have encountered. It is heartbreaking, challenging, and a page-turner." Anna Swisher,  ILCA There are many people who prefer to focus on the beauty of breastfeeding, and don’t want to look behind the scenes; don’t want to look how, why, when and where breasts ‘are bad for business’, or that a baby dies every thirty seconds due to lack of breastfeeding and the use of bottles and counterfeit milks. This is a book to awaken the masses, to make us sit up and notice. If only we would. Countless breastfeeding books exist, but few with the passion, integrity and importance of this one." Veronika Robinson – The Mother "A truly ‘life-changing’ book."  ABM "It is a story that every food campaigner, indeed political activist in any field, should read carefully."  The Food Magazine "In this most fascinating book, Palmer examines how it came to be that lactation, one of nature’s star turns, came to be, culturally, another human mess… I urge you to read this book. It is such a powerful, eye-opening read for all of us and not just breastfeeding mums but everyone, man or woman, who cares about children and all of society." Breastfeeding Matters, La Leche League GB

Eduardo Viveiros de Castro – Eduardo Viveiros de Castro

Gepost op 27 februari 2013 – 23:50 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

Der brasilianische Anthropologe Eduardo Viveiros de Castro beschäftigt sich mit den Vorurteilen gegenüber dem binären Denken, mit dem der strukturale Ethnologe Claude Lévi-Strauss assoziiert wird. Als Schlüssel zur Dekonstruktion dieses für ihn zu Unrecht verrufenen Schemas dient Viveiros de Castro zufolge die Mittellinie einer Gemeinschaft: »Mit anderen Worten müssen wir die Natur der inneren, die beiden Moieties trennenden Mittellinie begrifflich definieren[…]« In diesem Notizbuch wird die Mittellinie immer wieder neu verortet und dabei deutlich, dass das binäre System für Levi-Strauss keineswegs ein vereinfachender »modus operandi« gewesen ist. Schon zu Lebzeiten hat Lévi-Strauss den Dualismus problematisiert und dabei die Inkommensurabilität, den Chromatismus und die Dynamik dualer Strukturen mitgedacht. Eduardo Viveiros de Castro (*1951) ist ein brasilianischer Anthropologe und Professor am National Museum der Federal University von Rio de Janeiro.

Bruno Bosteels – Bruno Bosteels

Gepost op 27 februari 2013 – 23:50 in: Betaalde iPad boeken

In seinem Notizbuch befragt Bruno Bosteels die Beziehung zwischen Kunst und Ideologie. Er schlägt eine Analogie zwischen der Traumarbeit und der Kunst vor, da diese auf die »reflexhaften Gesten« und Annahmen über Kunst aufmerksam macht. Entgegen der Auffassung, dass Kunst per se mit Befreiung, Überschreitung und Widerständigkeit gleichzusetzen sei, entwirft Bosteels den Grundriss einer Theorie der Ideologie der Kunst und fragt, ob statt der überbewerteten politischen Subversion »die künstlerische Freiheit« als Grundmodell der ideologischen Einschreibung von Individuen in die bestehenden Gesellschaftsstrukturen dienen könne. Mithilfe von Louis Althusser, Jacques Rancière und Jean-François Lyotard analysiert er die Bindung der Kunst an die herrschende Ordnung und ihre vorübergehende halluzinatorische Befriedigung. Bruno Bosteels, (* 1967), ist zurzeit Professor für Romanistik und Komparatistik an der Cornell University, Ithaca, New York.
