Prized: Striking out into the wasteland with nothing but her baby sister and a rumor to guide her, Gaia survives only to be captured by the people of Sylum, a dystopian society where women rule the men who drastically outnumber them, and a kiss is a crime. In order to see her sister again, Gaia must submit to their strict social code, but how can she deny her sense of justice, her curiosity, and everything in her heart that makes her whole? Promised: After defying the ruthless Enclave, surviving the wasteland, and upending the rigid matriarchy of Sylum, Gaia now faces her biggest challenge ever. She must lead the people of Sylum back to the Enclave and persuade the Protectorat to grant them refuge from the wasteland. Is Gaia ready, as a leader, to sacrifice what—or whom—she loves most?

Book Beyond the Blockbusters

Download or read book Beyond the Blockbusters written by Rebekah Fitzsimmons and published by Univ. Press of Mississippi. This book was released on 2020-03-18 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Contributions by Megan Brown, Jill Coste, Sara K. Day, Rachel Dean-Ruzicka, Rebekah Fitzsimmons, Amber Gray, Roxanne Harde, Tom Jesse, Heidi Jones, Kaylee Jangula Mootz, Leah Phillips, Rachel L. Rickard Rebellino, S. R. Toliver, Jason Vanfosson, Sarah E. Whitney, and Casey Alane Wilson While critical and popular attention afforded to twenty-first-century young adult literature has exponentially increased in recent years, classroom materials and scholarship have remained static in focus and slight in scope. Twilight, The Hunger Games, The Fault in Our Stars, and The Hate U Give overwhelm conversations among scholars and critics—but these are far from the only texts in need of analysis. Beyond the Blockbusters: Themes and Trends in Contemporary Young Adult Fiction offers a necessary remedy to this limiting perspective, bringing together essays about the many subgenres, themes, and character types that have until now been overlooked. The collection tackles a diverse range of topics—modern updates to the marriage plot; fairy tale retellings in dystopian settings; stories of extrajudicial police killings and racial justice. The approaches are united, though, by a commitment to exploring the large-scale generic and theoretical structures at work in each set of texts. As a collection, Beyond the Blockbusters is an exciting entryway into a field that continues to grow and change even as its works captivate massive audiences. It will prove a crucial addition to the library of any scholar or instructor of young adult literature.

Book The Baltimore Case  A Trial of Politics  Science  and Character

Download or read book The Baltimore Case A Trial of Politics Science and Character written by Daniel J. Kevles and published by W. W. Norton & Company. This book was released on 2000-01-17 with total page 512 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "You read with a rising sense of despair and outrage, and you finish it as if awakening from a nightmare only Kafka could have conceived."--Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, New York Times David Baltimore won the Nobel Prize in medicine in 1975. Known as a wunderkind in the field of immunology, he rose quickly through the ranks of the scientific community to become the president of the distinguished Rockefeller University. Less than a year and a half later, Baltimore resigned from his presidency, citing the personal toll of fighting a long battle over an allegedly fraudulent paper he had collaborated on in 1986 while at MIT. From the beginning, the Baltimore case provided a moveable feast for those eager to hold science more accountable to the public that subsidizes its research. Did Baltimore stonewall a legitimate government inquiry? Or was he the victim of witch hunters? The Baltimore Case tells the complete story of this complex affair, reminding us how important the issues of government oversight and scientific integrity have become in a culture in which increasingly complicated technology widens the divide between scientists and society.

Book Birthmarked For Glory and Honor

Download or read book Birthmarked For Glory and Honor written by Kelly McCann and published by Ebookit.com. This book was released on 2017-10-25 with total page 152 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The revelation that Christians are called to live by faith is especially important for two main reasons. First, the call to live by faith indicates that faith is the only spiritual force that can enable God's people to step into the supernatural realm. Second, the call to live by faith underscores the fact that the Christian life is deeply-spiritual and designed to be best-lived by being fully-connected to God's divinity. Thus, the fundamental implication of the call to live by faith is that it is only by unlocking the life dynamics of faith that anyone can live in unity with God! However, the unlocking of the life dynamics of faith is a prophetic undertaking that requires accurate prophetic insight. The prophetic insight that unlocks the life dynamics of faith is the revelation that faith can be practically-lived because its supernatural power of action and accomplishment is conclusively-proven by its ability to provide answers to the 12 most important questions of life which include the following: 1.What is faith?2.What is the ultimate purpose of faith?3.What is the prophetic direction of faith? 4.What gives faith its supernatural capacity? 5.What is the spiritual flow of faith?6.What is the most important relationship dynamic of faith? 7.What is the most sensitive discipline of faith?8.What is the most active protocol of faith?9.What are the winning postures of faith? 10.What is the most important priority of faith?11.What is the most important work of faith? And 12.What is the greatest achievement of faith? These 12 all-important questions represent the 12 prophetic streams of faith from which Christians must drink in order to be spiritually-equipped to live by faith with the benefit of personally encountering and experiencing God! This is what it takes to live immersed in the deep waters of the most powerful force in heaven and on earth.

Book Girl Warriors

    Book Details:
  • Author : Svenja Hohenstein
  • Publisher : McFarland
  • Release : 2019-06-07
  • ISBN : 1476637393
  • Pages : 256 pages

Download or read book Girl Warriors written by Svenja Hohenstein and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2019-06-07 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Quest narratives are as old as Western culture. In stories like The Odyssey, The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars and Harry Potter, men set out on journeys, fight battles and become heroes. Women traditionally feature in such stories as damsels in need of rescue or as the prizes at the end of heroic quests. These narratives perpetuate predominant gender roles by casting men as active and women as passive. Focusing on stories in which popular teenage heroines--Buffy Summers, Katniss Everdeen and Disney's Princess Merida--embark on daring journeys, this book explores what happens when traditional gender roles and narrative patterns are subverted. The author examines representations of these characters across various media--film, television, novels, posters, merchandise, fan fiction and fan art, and online memes--that model concepts of heroism and girlhood inspired by feminist ideas.

Book Year 1

    Book Details:
  • Author : Susan Buck-Morss
  • Publisher : MIT Press
  • Release : 2021-04-13
  • ISBN : 0262362716
  • Pages : 418 pages

Download or read book Year 1 written by Susan Buck-Morss and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2021-04-13 with total page 418 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Reclaiming the first century as common ground rather than the origin of deeply entrenched differences: liberating the past to speak to us in another way. Conventional readings of antiquity cast Athens against Jerusalem, with Athens standing in for "reason" and Jerusalem for "faith." And yet, Susan Buck-Morss reminds us, recent scholarship has overturned this separation. Naming the first century as a zero point--"year one"--that divides time into before and after is equally arbirtrary, nothing more than a convenience that is empirically meaningless. In YEAR 1, Buck-Morss liberates the first century so it can speak to us in another way, reclaiming it as common ground rather than the origin of deeply entrenched differences. Buck-Morss aims to topple various conceptual givens that have shaped modernity as an episteme and led us into some unhelpful postmodern impasses. She approaches the first century through the writings of three thinkers often marginalized in current discourse: Flavius Josephus, historian of the Judaean war; the neo-Platonic philosopher Philo of Alexandria; and John of Patmos, author of Revelation, the last book of the Christian Bible. Also making appearances are Antigone and John Coltrane, Plato and Bulwer-Lytton, al-Farabi and Jean Anouilh, Nicholas of Cusa and Zora Neale Hurston--not to mention Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Kristeva, and Derrida. Buck-Morss shows that we need no longer partition history as if it were a homeless child in need of the protective wisdom of Solomon. Those inhabiting the first century belong together in time, and therefore not to us.
