Vulnerable. Olga Michi
te Neues 2021, ISBN: 9783961712984
8421руб Купить
In this stunning compilation of 140 images, photographer Olga Michi brings a new kind of portrait photography to endangered ethnic groups around the world. Her striking images seen in Vulnerable, present individuals against a black background, dramatically lit to focus on their dress, accessories, and individual expression. These indigenous peoples represent some of the most unique cultures in a hyper-globalised world, and an emotional reminder that they are our fellow human beings and singular personalities. And starkly, the rifles, cartridge cases, plastic objects and cell phones that also appear in Michi’s pictures acknowledge the fragility of their way of life. Text in English and German.

Wealth of Nations
World Literature, Wordsworth 2012, ISBN: 9781840226881
661руб Купить
Adam Smith (1723-1790) was one of the brightest stars of the eighteenth-century Scottish Enlightenment. An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations was his most important book. First published in London in March 1776, it had been eagerly anticipated by Smith’s contemporaries and became an immediate bestseller. That edition sold out quickly and others followed. Today, Smith’s Wealth of Nations rightfully claims a place in the Western intellectual canon. It is the first book of modern political economy, and still provides the foundation for the study of that discipline. But it is much more than that. Along with important discussions of economics and political theory, Smith mixed plain common sense with large measures of history, philosophy, psychology, sociology, and much else. Few texts remind us so clearly that the Enlightenment was very much a lived experience, a concern with improving the human condition in practical ways for real people. A masterpiece by any measure, Wealth of Nations remains a classic of world literature to be usefully enjoyed by readers today.
 
The Essential Philosophical Works
World Literature, Wordsworth 2011, ISBN: 9781840226669
661руб Купить
David Hume (1711-1776) was the most important philosopher ever to write in English, as well as a master stylist. This volume contains his major philosophical works. A Treatise of Human Nature (1739-1740), published while Hume was still in his twenties, consists of three books on the understanding, the passions, and morals. It applies the experimental method of reasoning to human nature in a revolution that was intended to make Hume the Newton of the moral sciences. Disappointed with the Treatise’s failure to bring about such a revolution, Hume later recast Book I as An Enquiry concerning Human Understanding (1751), and Book III as An Enquiry concerning the Principles of Morals, which he regarded as ’incomparably the best’ of all his works. Both Enquiries went through several editions in his lifetime. Hume’s works, controversial in his day, remain deeply and widely influential in ours, especially for his contributions to our understanding of the nature of morality, political and economic theory, philosophy of religion, and philosophical naturalism. This volume also includes Hume’s anonymous Abstract of Books I and II of the Treatise, and the short autobiographical essay, ’My Own Life’, which he wrote just before his death.
 
The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire
World Literature, Wordsworth 2021, ISBN: 9781853264993
661руб Купить
Gibbon’s Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, published between 1776 and 1788, is the undisputed masterpiece of English historical writing which can only perish with the language itself. Its length alone is a measure of its monumental quality: seventy-one chapters, of which twenty-eight appear in full in this edition. With style, learning and wit, Gibbon takes the reader through the history of Europe from the second century AD to the fall of Constantinople in 1453 — an enthralling account by ’the greatest of the historians of the Enlightenment’. This edition includes Gibbon’s footnotes and quotations, here translated for the first time, together with brief explanatory comments, a precis of the chapters not included, 16 maps, a glossary, and a list of emperors.
 
The Complete Illustrated Fairy Tales of The Brothers Grimm
Classics, Wordsworth 2021, ISBN: 9781853268984
1788руб Купить
Jacob Grimm (1785-1863) and his brother Wilhelm (1786-1859) were philologists and folklorists. The brothers rediscovered a host of fairy tales, telling of princes and princesses in their castles, witches in their towers and forests, of giants and dwarfs, of fabulous animals and dark deeds. Together with the well-known tales of Rapunzel, The Goose-Girl, Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretel and Snow White, there are the darker tales such as Death’s Messengers which deserve to be better known, and which will appeal not only to all who are interested in the history of folklore, but also to all those who simply love good story-telling.
 
The Odyssey, Homer
Classics, Wordsworth 2021, ISBN: 9781853260254
419руб Купить
Homer’s great epic describes the many adventures of Odysseus, Greek warrior, as he strives over many years to return to his home island of Ithaca after the Trojan War. His colourful adventures, his endurance, his love for his wife and son have the same power to move and inspire readers today as they did in Archaic Greece, 2800 years ago. This poem has been translated many times over the years, but Chapman’s sinewy, gorgeous rendering (1616) stands in a class of its own. Chapman believed himself inspired by the spirit of Homer himself, and matches the breadth and power of the original with a complex and stunning idiom of his own. John Keats expressed his admiration for the resulting work in the famous sonnet, ’On first looking into Chapman’s Homer’: ’Much have I travelled in the realms of gold...’ This new Wordsworth edition of Chapman’s Homer contains accessible annotation, and a detailed introduction that places his masterpiece in the context of his own day, and discusses its influences on later poets.
 
The Mayor of Casterbridge, Hardy Thomas
Classics, Wordsworth 2021, ISBN: 9781853260988
419руб Купить
None of the great Victorian novels is more vivid and readable than The Mayor of Casterbridge. Set in the heart of Hardy’s Wessex, the ’partly real, partly dream country’ he founded on his native Dorset, it charts the rise and self-induced downfall of a single ’man of character’. The fast-moving and ingeniously contrived narrative is Shakespearian in its tragic force, and features some of the author’s most striking episodes and brilliant passages of description.
 
Nostromo, Conrad Joseph
Classics, Wordsworth 2021, ISBN: 9781853261749
419руб Купить
Nostromo is the only man capable of the decisive action needed to save the silver of the San Tome mine and secure independence for Sulaco, Occidental province of the Latin American state of Costaguana. Is his integrity as unassailable as everyone believes, or will his ideals, like those which have inspired the struggling state itself, buckle under economic and political pressures? Nostromo is an extraordinary illustration of the impact of foreign commercial exploits on a young developing nation, and the problems of reconciling individual identity with a social role. Conrad peoples his imaginary Latin American state with a multi-national cast of fully-rounded characters to achieve striking realism and create a novel that he called ’my largest canvas’.

A story of patients and staff, family, and friends who are part of a heart clinic in a community caught between the old Ireland and the new. Dr. Clara Casey has been offered the thankless job of establishing the underfunded clinic and agrees to take it on for a year. She has plenty on her plate already--two difficult adult daughters and the unwanted attentions of her ex-husband--but she assembles a wonderfully diverse staff devoted to helping their demanding, often difficult patients. Before long the clinic is established as an essential part of the community, and Clara must decide whether or not to leave a place where lives are saved, courage is rewarded, and humor and optimism triumph over greed and self-pity.
