This classic architectural survey of West Kent has been used by students and travellers for more than forty years. Now fully revised and expanded to include the great variety of buildings added to the landscape during that time, this indispensable guide offers fresh perspectives on major landmarks such as Igtham Mote, Sissinghurst, and Hever Castle. Kent is home to an extraordinary amount of first-rate architecture, from the timber-framed houses of the Weald and the spacious cathedral of Rochester to the planned, modernist suburb of New Ash Green and the docks of Dungeness.3734 Руб.
Post Reformation polemics between Protestants and Catholics were still evident in nineteenth-century England. Protestants and Anglicans minimized all Marian expression and devotion by saying less about Mary. Catholics maximized Marian doctrine and devotion, thereby saying more about Mary; hence the title of the book: “Mary More or Less”. As an Anglican John Henry Newman had a personal devotion to the Virgin Mary, but he restricted it and his Marian sermons to the places in Scripture where Mary is specifically mentioned. As a convert to Catholicism Newman found deeper theological insights about Mary as the Second Eve in the Church Fathers. He called the Second Eve doctrine the rudimentary doctrine because of the insight it gave him into the principal Marian doctrines which he tried to explain to Anglican friends, especially Edward Pusey. This book will be of interest to anyone with a historical, theological and philosophical interest in Newman Studies, Teachers and students of Mariology, and Ecumenism will find a starting point for further study. The anticipated audience of this book is: clergy, religious, seminarians, graduate and under-graduate students, and all Friends of Newman.5193 Руб.
The exceptionally rich architecture of eastern Kent is covered by this fully revised, updated and expanded edition of John Newman's classic survey, first published in 1969. This city of Canterbury is the county's greatest treasure, and its glorious cathedral is the first mature example of Gothic architecture in England. The influence of Canterbury appears also in the remains of St Augustine's seventh-century mission churches, and in sophisticated Norman carved work at churches such as Barfrestone. Kent is also a maritime county, and its coastal towns are excitingly diverse: the royal stronghold of Dover with its mighty medieval castle; the medieval port of Sandwich; and resorts large and small, from genteel Folkestone to lively Margate, with its bold new art gallery.3734 Руб.
John Updike's The Coup is freewheeling satire that defines the relationship between the West and Africa. For many of Western authors, and Updike is not an exception, the appeal of Africa is its "Otherness", its difference from the contemporary West. The novel is a dramatization of the political events that characterized post-colonial Africa. It also concerns government mismanagement in the black continent, and has little details that showcase the Cold War post-colonial chaos that was sub-Saharan Africa. Through his imagery of Africa and Africans in The Coup, Updike seems to convey the impression that events in much of the so-called Third World reflect not merely the institutional dilemmas of post-colonial politics in Africa, but an existential condition hardly amenable to human solutions.6253 Руб.
Following the 9/11 events and its aftermath, the media make Islam ‘more known’ by linking it to terrorism and threat to the Western world. Islam is then described as the new enemy to the West representing an ideological and even physical threat. Studies conducted by scholars such as Elizabeth Poole and John E. Richardson indicated that generally Islam and Muslims are represented negatively in the British mainstream media. Taking a different path, the study presented in this book focuses on The Tablet, a leading Catholic weekly newspaper in Britain. Responding to the clash of civilisations hypothesis that dominates the representation of Islam and Muslims in the British mainstream media, The Tablet presents a different perspective by considering Islam and Muslims as partners to the West on the grounds that Islamic civilisation and Western civilisation are compatible.4846 Руб.

1960s are best noted as turbulent years when an amount of accumulated and repressed energy broke loose to “flood” all the preconceived absolutes and media-based mentalities. However, the commonly labeled “age of suspicion,” has been more acclaimed for its aftermath and lasting impact than for what the so-called “counter-culture revolution” really accomplished during those years. Therefore, the apparently strikingly Western novels, that is, Thomas Berger’s Little Big Man (1964), Ishmael Reed’s Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down (1969) and E. L. Doctorow’s Welcome to Hard Times (1960) exemplify outstanding examples of the New Western or Post-Western launched in the 1960s. As such, each in its own way and yet on similar terms, the above-mentioned works blend both Western and metafictional elements into a more sustainable fictional and mythical entities thus revealing alternative and more intriguing Western histories (lower case). Above all, they revitalize the “literature of exhaustion” and “silence,” as John Barth and Ihab Hassan respectively labeled it in the 1960s, by creating real fiction out of the remnants of the out-dated genre.6552 Руб.
