Book excerpt: A medieval saga with political intrigue reminiscent of Game of Thrones, The Golden Age is an epic graphic novel duology from Roxanne Moreil and Cyril Pedrosa about utopia and revolution. In the kingdom of Lantrevers, suffering is a way of life—unless you’re a member of the ruling class. Princess Tilda plans to change all that. As the rightful heir of late King Ronan, Tilda wants to deliver her people from famine and strife. But on the eve of her coronation, her younger brother, backed by a cabal of power-hungry lords, usurps her throne and casts her into exile. Now Tilda is on the run. With the help of her last remaining allies, Tankred and Bertil, she travels in secret through the hinterland of her kingdom. Wherever she goes, the common folk whisper of a legendary bygone era when all men lived freely. There are those who want to return to this golden age—at any cost. In the midst of revolution, how can Tilda reclaim her throne?

Book Sport in the Golden Age of China  Volume 1

Download or read book Sport in the Golden Age of China Volume 1 written by Lingyu Xie and published by Palmer Higgs Pty Ltd. This book was released on 2013-12-03 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The purpose of was to examine the evidence of sport in the so called "Golden Age" of ancient China, and to place that evidence in a cultural context. The particular theoretical approach was a structuralist and functionalist one, its basic assumption being that sport as a social institution is to be understood in terms of its relationship to other components in the system, and thus sport can be seen as reinforcing or supporting other dimensions of the system. A theoretical model proposed by Salter and Jones was utilized. When evidence of sports and the cultural components of the Salter and Jones model were subject to analysis, activities related to cultural identification were in the majority, followed by those classified as being of social interaction, then political, ceremonial, economic and domestic.As sports are held to be a microcosm of society then the conclusion would have to be that the culture was one that stressed the ideas, standards, knowledge and techniques of that culture, and emphasised the reciprocal relationship of human beings. Political and ceremonial type sports also loomed large in the culture, demonstrating perhaps the subservience required of a majority of the population and the firm control by those in power to control that population.Four hypotheses were advanced and upheld. First, that sporting activities in the Golden Age of ancient China were influenced by both enculturation and acculturation. Second, that the preponderance of sport was related to the upper classes. Third, that the majority of the activities were of the informal variety, some of them being purely recreational. Fourth, the majority of the activities were for males, which corresponds with the male dominant, traditional culture of China, though the point is valid that their involvement exceeds that of any prior period in Chinese history. Fifth, that certain activities were restricted through climate and geography. Sport in the Golden Age did not stand separate from life, rather it influenced, and was in turn influenced by, the various cultural components. Sport was clearly a social phenomenon, which extended into politics, even into foreign policy, the military and religion, and formed close relationships with these various components. It would appear that sport was a reasonable mirror, or microcosm, of culture in the Golden Age of ancient China.

Book Cartoon Voices of the Golden Age  1930 70 Vol  1

Download or read book Cartoon Voices of the Golden Age 1930 70 Vol 1 written by Keith Scott and published by BearManor Media. This book was released on 2022-10-03 with total page 596 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cartoon voices of the golden age, 1930-70 In today’s world of instant information everyone knows everything about cartoon voices. Animation is a huge business, and Voice Actors are respected. But it wasn’t always so. For thirty years before the TV age, countless “Classic Era” cartoons from 1928 to 1970 were seen in movie theatres before the main feature. During that Golden Age, virtually every cartoon voice actor (with the notable exception of the great Mel Blanc), was resigned to being totally anonymous. Despite creating immortal voices like Droopy, Popeye, Elmer Fudd or Betty Boop, the actors’ names simply didn’t appear on screen. This book is the first to explore the development of voice artistry from the birth of sound movies to the dawn of TV cartoons, when “voices” finally got screen credit. Documented in this exhaustively researched history is the full story of how acting for cartoons slowly changed from squawks and grunts into an art form. From the earliest days when animators themselves were the only voices, through the gradual hiring of professional radio actors, this book finally names the many artists who were unknown for four decades. Illustrated with rare mugshots of hitherto unknown voices, Volume One is the studio-by-studio saga of how cartoon voice acting took off. Volume Two is the reference section, with insanely detailed voice credits for thousands of cartoons from top animation studios of the Classic Era. Animation fans can finally learn the full story in Cartoon Voices of the Golden Age, with never before told insights into one of the most undocumented areas of film history. Keith Scott has spent over forty years as an internationally recognized cartoon voice actor and impressionist. He narrated two George of the Jungle movies, and was the voice of both Bullwinkle J. Moose and the Narrator in The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle. He is the author of The MooseThat Roared and many articles on animation and Hollywood radio history.

Book Ajanta  History and Development

Download or read book Ajanta History and Development written by Walter Spink and published by BRILL. This book was released on 2018-11-12 with total page 435 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The twenty-nine Buddhist caves near Ajanta form a devotional complex which ranks as one of the world's most startling achievements, created at the very apogee of India's Golden Age. "Ajanta: History and Development," appears as part of the series Handbook of Oriental Studies, present the reader with a systematic treatment of all aspects of the site, the result of forty years of painstaking research "in situ" by Walter M. Spink. Volume one deals with the historical context in which this dramatic burst of pious activity took place under the reign of Vakataka emperor Harisena, (c. 460 - 477 A.D.), and with the sudden halt of activity almost immediately following the death of the emperor. In surprising detail the relative and absolute chronology of the site can be established from a careful reading of the physical evidence, with consequences for our dating of India's Golden Age. Ajanta, it appears, is a veritable illustrated history of Harisena's times, crowded with information on its history, development and how it was used.

Download or read book The Frigid Golden Age written by Dagomar Degroot and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2018-02-08 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Dagomar Degroot offers the first detailed analysis of how a society thrived amid the Little Ice Age, a period of climatic cooling that reached its chilliest point between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries. The precocious economy, unusual environment, and dynamic intellectual culture of the Dutch Republic in its seventeenth-century Golden Age allowed it to thrive as neighboring societies unraveled in the face of extremes in temperature and precipitation. By tracing the occasionally counterintuitive manifestations of climate change from global to local scales, Degroot finds that the Little Ice Age presented not only challenges for Dutch citizens but also opportunities that they aggressively exploited in conducting commerce, waging war, and creating culture. The overall success of their Republic in coping with climate change offers lessons that we would be wise to heed today, as we confront the growing crisis of global warming.

Phaethon, of Radamanthus House, is attending a glorious party at his family mansion celebrating the thousand-year anniversary of the High Transcendence. There he meets an old man who accuses him of being an imposter, and then a being from Neptune who claims to be an old friend. The Neptunian tells him that essential parts of his memory were removed and stored by the very government that Phaethon believes to be wholly honorable. It shakes his faith. Is he indeed an exile from himself? He can’t resist investigating, even though to do so could mean the loss of his inheritance, his very place in society. His quest must be to regain his true identity and fulfill the destiny he chose for himself. The Golden Age is just the beginning of Phaethon’s story, which will continue in The Phoenix Exultant, forthcoming from Tor.
