The 39 Steps Of Self-division

A Structural Approach To The Depiction Of Internal Conflict In Six Famous Dramatic Works

The 39 Steps Of Self-division

The 39 Steps of Self-Division is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the theater and in literary criticism. Original and innovative, The 39 Steps of Self-Division presents a detailed structure of the Self-Division process, which depicts a protagonist torn within his soul between two opposing courses of action. Author Sam Zebba brings years of teaching and analytical exploration to the formation of his 39-step 'flow chart' guiding a play's advance. In clear and easy to understand language, and with the use of instantly comprehensible tables, Zebba demonstrates the structure's undeniable function, and exposes the startling step-by-step uniformity in the following six famous, unrelated Self-Division plays. Sophocles' Oedipus Shakespeare's Hamlet and Othello Brecht's Galileo Pirandello's Henry IV Bates' & Lean's Summer Madness The 39 Steps of Self-Division is a useful, inventive, and insightful aid to a better understanding of structure in some of dramatic literature's most highly regarded masterpieces.

Aspects of My Life

Aspects of My Life

Explorer, musician, and educator Sam Zebba is a modern-day Renaissance Man. In humorous yet penetrating lines he recreates events which he experienced throughout his well-travelled life. Aspects of My Life is a celebration of optimism, warmth, and awe toward all fellow human beings. “Bestowed with wit, realism, and knowledge, Zebba is as keen an observer as he is deeply empathetic. With the vivid portraits of those he learned from, shared with, pleaded and fought for, an epoch comes to life.” Caroline Fetscher, historian and editor at large, Berlin “Zebba writes of his experiences with the same verve and insight that he brought to his extraordinary career. In a life filled with challenges and adventure, he has filled his years with what most people only dream about.” Prof. Ernie Rose, documentary film specialist & retired Fine Arts college dean, USA ”Aspect of My Life is a touching, evocative, beautifully observed odyssey, full of resonances and impressionistic imagery. It is the best kind of writing.” Dr. John Lazarus, literary critic, formerly Principal of Yehudi Menuhin School, London

Spyscreen

Espionage on Film and TV from the 1930s to the 1960s

Spyscreen

Spyscreen is a genre study of English-language spy fiction film and television between the 1930s and 1960s. Taking as his focus many well-known films and television series, Toby Miller uses a wide range of critical approaches - from textual interpretation, audience studies, and cultural history, through auteurism, imperial history, class, and governmentality, to genre, cultural imperialism, and gender. Beginning with an overview of the social and political background to the history,production, and analysis of spy fiction, topics discussed include the first canonical espionage movie, The 39 Steps, key film noir texts such as Gilda and The Third Man, the figure of popular spies, including James Bond, and the importance of women to the genre. The result is not just an insightful new study of key texts in this popular genre; it is an important intervention in the methodology and practice of Screen Studies.

Kenya, Uganda, and United Republic of Tanzania

This Selected Issues paper for Kenya, Uganda, and United Republic of Tanzania highlights their private sector credit markets, identifies their main obstacles in promoting credit to the private sector, and suggests a reform strategy. If the East African Community (EAC) countries decide to pursue a coordinated approach to investment incentives, one possible solution would be to agree on a Code of Conduct for Investment Incentives and Company Income Taxation. A transparent tax system with a broad base would reduce the demand by investors for tax holidays.

A Dictionary of Chinese Buddhist Terms

With Sanskrit and English Equivalents and a Sanskrit-Pali Index

A Dictionary of Chinese Buddhist Terms

This invaluable interpretive tool, first published in 1937, is now available for the first time in a paperback edition specially aimed at students of Chinese Buddhism. Those who have endeavoured to read Chinese texts apart from the apprehension of a Sanskrit background have generally made a fallacious interpretation, for the Buddhist canon is basically translation, or analogous to translation. In consequence, a large number of terms existing are employed approximately to connote imported ideas, as the various Chinese translators understood those ideas. Various translators invented different terms; and, even when the same term was finally adopted, its connotation varied, sometimes widely, from the Chinese term of phrase as normally used by the Chinese. For instance, klésa undoubtedly has a meaning in Sanskrit similar to that of, i.e. affliction, distress, trouble. In Buddhism affliction (or, as it may be understood from Chinese, the afflicters, distressers, troublers) means passions and illusions; and consequently fan-nao in Buddhist phraseology has acquired this technical connotation of the passions and illusions. Many terms of a similar character are noted in the body of this work. Consequent partly on this use of ordinary terms, even a well-educated Chinese without a knowledge of the technical equivalents finds himself unable to understand their implications.

The Engine of Complexity

Evolution as Computation

The Engine of Complexity

The concepts of evolution and complexity theory have become part of the intellectual ether permeating the life sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, and, more recently, management science and economics. In this book, John E. Mayfield elegantly synthesizes core concepts from multiple disciplines to offer a new approach to understanding how evolution works and how complex organisms, structures, organizations, and social orders can and do arise based on information theory and computational science. Intended for the intellectually adventuresome, this book challenges and rewards readers with a nuanced understanding of evolution and complexity that offers consistent, durable, and coherent explanations for major aspects of our life experiences. Numerous examples throughout the book illustrate evolution and complexity formation in action and highlight the core function of computation lying at the work's heart.
