Die Hippie-Bewegung als friedfertige Rebellion der Jugend ist in den 60er Jahren in den westlichen Gesellschaften entstanden. Langhaarig und farbenfroh gekleidet, protestierten ihre Anhänger gegen die ihrer Meinung nach spießige und sinnentleerte, einzig auf Wohlstand und Konsum ausgerichtete Kultur ihrer Eltern. Ihre von gesellschaftlichen Zwängen und Tabus freie Lebensauffassung wurde von der älteren Generation oft als Provokation empfunden. Tatsächlich waren die Blumenkinder auf der Suche nach einer humaneren Lebensweise, nach Harmonie mit der Welt und mit sich selbst. Matala an der Südküste von Kreta war ein Zentrum der Bewegung. Der Fotoband Mythos Matala fängt in Bild und Text ein, wie Jugendliche aus aller Welt in den Höhlen an der malerischen Bucht von Matala damals nach ihren Vorstellungen und nach ihrer Devise love & peace ein einfaches und glückliches Leben zu führen versuchten. The hippie movement was the playful, peaceful side of the 1960s counterculture. Its unkempt, psychedelically clad proponents rejected their parents¿ "square¿ culture, with its self-serving creed of prosperity, and the "squares¿ were repelled by the hippies¿ subversion of societal norms and taboos. But the flower children were anything but naysayers. Troubled by the shadows of war and longing to feel a sense of harmony with the world they lived in, young people took to the road in search of self. And for quite a few of them, the journey included a stop in Matala. The Myth of Matala commemorates that unforgettable time. Lavishly illustrated with historic professional and amateur photos, the book shows young people from around the world as they attempted to live up to their ideals of love and peace by reducing life to its elements. In the primitive cave dwellings of Matala, a picturesque bay on the south coast of Crete, bliss was there for the taking ¿ if sometimes only for a few weeks.

Grit doesn’t fade away...it just becomes crusty. With harrowing elements right out of today’s headlines, this story reaches back into the sturdy heartbeat of people raised during the Depression and tested during World War II. Though the old uniforms haven’t fit in many decades, their resilient spirits still have that same intensity that helped save democracy. Needing only a fresh angle to write her Veteran’s Day special, Kelly discovers firsthand that the Greatest Generation still has enough grit to fight back. While all the authorities are occupied during a massive Homeland Security drill, an urban gang of thieves targets an isolated retirement subdivision...figuring the crippled geriatrics would offer no resistance. Though Kelly’s widowed boyfriend came along only for a post-funeral luncheon, Mitch soon finds himself leading a mismatched flanking team. Kelly’s good friend Wade has his own assignment, with a homemade mortar and lots of illegal gunpowder.Maybe it’s difficult to remember everyday things like taking pills, but these octogenarians have never forgotten it was up to them to defend family, home, and community. The outcome of their courageous stand depends on the resolve and resourcefulness of an unlikely ensemble of eccentric elderly neighbors, several American Legion members, and others spanning four generations.  1.

Third Step East: Zen Masters of America
23,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In "The Third Step East: Zen Masters of America", Richard Bryan McDaniel continues the story, begun in his earlier work, of the spread of Zen from India to China ("Zen Masters of China: The First Step East"), thence to Japan ("Zen Masters of Japan: The Second Step East"), and then to North America and Europe. As McDaniel points out in the prologue to this book, the history of Zen practice in United States is less than a hundred years old. The first Zen priests sent to America from Japan were assigned to temples which served the immigrant population on the west coast. The temples functioned as community centers where traditional values were retained and respected. The priests' responsibilities were similar to those of their Christian counterparts, to perform wedding and funeral services, to conduct memorial services, and to carry ritual ceremonies for the benefit of their congregations. Although Zen was understood to be the meditation school of Buddhism, meditation was viewed as an activity for monastics and clergy, not for lay people. McDaniel's book demonstrates how this tradition was transformed into a lay practice in the west. He begins by examining the social and cultural factors in America which led to an initial theoretical interest in Zen during the 1940s and '50s, after which he profiles the individuals who fostered that interest, including D. T. Suzuki, Alan Watts, and the Beat Generation of writers. Ironically, during the 1960s, when Zen was on the decline in Japan-because the youth of that country viewed it as a remnant of the old feudal and the militaristic structures responsible for a the war that had ended so disastrously for the country-youth culture in America came to look upon Zen as a way of escaping from the intellectual and social constraints of their culture. Chapters are dedicated to the lives and work of the early teachers who established Zen practice in the West: Robert Aitken, Shunryu Suzuki, Eido Shimano, Taizan Maezumi, Philip Kapleau, Dainin Katagiri, and others. A summary of the main elements of the teaching styles of each of these is provided, giving readers an overview of the different training methods used by these pioneers and the ways in which they adapted an ancient Asian tradition to a new environment. The book also collects and retells some of the stories associated with these teachers which have begun to circulate within Zen circles, much as earlier tales of their Asian predecessors have done. The story of American Zen will be continued in a sequel to this work, entitled "Cypress Trees in the Garden", scheduled for publication by Sumeru in the Autumn of 2015. It will describe the heirs and legacies of the Zen Masters and teachers described in "The Third Step East".

The Collected Short Stories of Louis L'Amour, V...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

There is no story more distinctly American than the Western, and no writer as great a master of the form as Louis L'Amour. In this seventh volume of L'Amour's collected short stories, you'll find some of his most popular characters, heroes who have become a part of our cultural legacy, as well as the ordinary men and women whose adventures are chronicled with an immediacy no reader can resist - or ever forget. In Louis L'Amour's frontier stories, the American West is the crucible in which character is tested, reputations are won or lost, and life always hangs in the balance. Struggling to survive against the elements, hostile Indians, or outlaws who prey upon the honest and hardworking, the men and women in these tales each come face-to-face with what they're made of - often in moments that explode with the violence of an avalanche or the speed of a drawn gun. Here, L'Amour demonstrates the unerring touch for detail and keen insight into human nature that lend these stories the power to thrill, surprise, and entertain readers of every generation. A man driven by his faith in the woman he loves survives war, Indian massacre, and near starvation only to find his homecoming delayed by one last battle - under his own roof. To stop a range war, a ranch foreman stands up to his boss, his men, and conspirators who seem to have both right and might on their side. And in a town where 14 men have already died under suspicious circumstances, a new sheriff by the name of Utah Blaine patiently sets a trap for a frontier serial killer. Here are stories of honest thieves and crooked lawmen, of dream chasers and treasure hunters, of men and women hoping for a second chance and others down to their last. This rich and varied cast embodies not only the spirit of the West but the timeless struggle of the best and worst in us all, on a stage as big as the frontier itself. 1. Language: English.

New Tonality
68,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the 1970s, a stylistic shift emerged within contemporary Western classical music composition to counteract the Modernist aesthetic practiced by the post-Webern generation. This New Tonality aesthetic (originally called New Romanticism) asserts the rights of composers to choose from all musical styles and techniques, including a reinvention of tonality in the wake of Modernism, and advocates a return to expression, emotion, communication and accessibility. This book examines the development and characteristics of New Tonality, as well as research and composers' comments on the style. The book also examines two New Tonal works - James Hopkins' Songs of Eternity, and Paul Moravec's Songs of Love and War - and considers the musical elements and compositional techniques that place them within the style. Finally, After Death: Poems by Edgar Allan Poe, an original New Tonal work composed by the author, is presented and discussed. This work represents the author's reflection and interpretation of the historical and contemporary influences currently at work in Western classical music, as well as his view of what it means to compose serious art music in the early twenty-first century.

Jubilee as a folk novel
13,99 € *

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,5, University of Cologne, course: Einführungsseminar Literaturwissenschaft Teil B: The Neo-Slave Narrative, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: On nearly 500 pages Margaret Walker tells the story of her great-grandmother. Jubilee is the story about Vyry, a black female slave who longs for freedom and finally gains it, at least officially, after the Civil War years. Besides this individual destiny, the novel contains historical sections and information about political developments during that time, several complex characters in addition to Vyry and inside views even of white characters, detailed descriptions of the slaves' everyday life, their family structures, their language and their hierarchies. My term paper will deal with those elements which turn Jubilee into a folk novel, i.e. an account of African American traditions which were passed from generation to generation orally. It was clear to me that Walker had intended to write a kind of folk novel when I readher dedication: She dedicated her first and only novel to her family, especially to herfour children so "that they may know something of their heritage". Apparently, familyboundaries and traditions do not only play a major role in the novel but also did inWalker's own life. After reading Walker's essay "How I wrote Jubilee" there wasfurther evidence found for my initial intuition. There she mentions: "I always intendedJubilee to be a folk novel based on folk material: folk sayings, folk belief, folkways."(Walker 1973: 62). Furthermore, the origin of Jubilee is a piece of oral tradition itself.According to the same essay, her grandmother had told her stories about slave life inGeorgia ever since she was a child (Walker 1973: 51). As an adult she carried out along-lasting research because she was determined "to authenticate the story I hadheard from my grandmother's lips" (Walker 1973: 56). The task of this term paper will be to find instances where its characteristics as afolk novel become obvious. To fulfil this task I will begin with a summary of the noveland I will provide a working definition of the term "folklore". Afterwards there will be acloser investigation of some folkloric categories which are represented in Jubilee.
