An Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, novel 'Richard was an alpha werewolf. It was his only serious flaw. We'd broken up after I'd seen him eat somebody.' You never forget your ex-fiance. And when the call came at three in the morning, I thought for a moment it was him. It wasn't. It was his brother. And it wasn't good news. Apparently the former love of my life had got himself thrown into jail for assaulting a woman. Since I make my living as a preternatural expert, I tend to believe almost anything's possible. But though he may be one of the monsters, Richard would never harm a woman. So it's Anita Blake to the rescue. I've got just a few days to spring Richard and find out who framed him - and why. There's a full moon coming, and if my werewolf love is still behind bars when it rises, he'll be facing a lot worse than an assault charge...

Les Sceptiques Grecs
Ce livre historique peut contenir de nombreuses coquilles et du texte manquant. Les acheteurs peuvent generalement telecharger une copie gratuite scannee du livre original (sans les coquilles) aupres de l'editeur. Non reference. Non illustre. 1887 edition. Extrait: ...un examen attentif? Mais quand vous l'aurez retournee de toutes facons, vous dites qu'il pourra encore se faire qu'elle soit fausse: quelle confiance aurez-vous donc en elle? Quoi de plus absurde que de dire: voici la inarque, la preuve qui me fait admettre cette assertion; il est bien possible pourtant qu'elle soit fausse. Consideree dans la formule generale qui l'exprime, la these des nouveaux academiciens ne peut se soutenir: examinons a present les arguments de detail qu'on invoque en sa faveur. Avec les stoiciens, on distingue plusieurs sortes de representations. Les divisions sont admirables: les definitions fines et exactes. Mais quoi! n'est-ce pas la le langage d'hommes qui ont des opinions arretees? Ces merveilleuses definitions, une fois formulees, peut-on les appliquer indifferemment a n'importe quoi? Si oui, comment dire qu'elles sont justes? Si non, il faudra bien convenir qu'il y a des objets auxquels seuls elles conviennent, et qu'on le sait. Et comment ne pas voir une contradiction eclatante entre ces deux propositions, expressement admises par les academiciens: Il y a des representations fausses. Entre les representations vraies et les fausses, il n'y a point de difference specifique. En admettant la premiere. vous niez la seconde; en proclamant la seconde, vous detruisez la premiere. Analysons avec soin le fait meme de la representation. La representation est un etat de l'ame, mais un etat qui en meme temps qu'il est connu nous fait connaitre aussi ce qui l'a produit. Je vois un...
Since 1993, Ciudad Juarez, a Mexican border city on the Rio Grande, has attracted global attention as the tragic scene of hundreds of feminicidios - violent and often unexplained murders of females aged 12 to 22. As of publication, many of these cases still remained unsolved. Luchadoras imagines life amongst these horrifying events, with the explicit hope that the book will help in the fight against machismo and misogyny and contribute to a change in mentality.

Guernsey Folk Lore
Of late years the ancient superstitions of the people, their legendary tales, their proverbial sayings, and, in fine, all that is designated by the comprehensive term of "Folk-Lore,” have attracted much and deserved attention. Puerile as are many of these subjects, they become interesting when a comparison is instituted amongst them as they exist in various countries. It is then seen how wide is their spread—how, for example, the same incident in a fairy tale, modified according to the manners and customs of the people by whom it is related, extends from the remotest east to the westernmost confines of Europe, and is even found occasionally to re-appear among the wild tribes of the American Continent, and the isolated inhabitants of Polynesia. The ethnologist may find in this an argument for the common origin of all nations, and their gradual spread from one central point,—the philosopher and psychologist may speculate on the wonderful construction of the human mind, and, throwing aside the idea of the unity of the race, may attribute the similarities of tradition to an innate set of ideas, which find their expression in certain definite forms,—while the historian and antiquary may sometimes discover in these popular traditions, a confirmation or explanation of some doubtful point. Lastly, he whose sole object is amusement, and whose taste is not entirely vitiated by the exaggerated and exciting fiction of modern times, will turn with pleasure to the simple tales which have amused his childhood, and which are ever fresh and ever new. Much of this ancient lore has already perished, and much is every day disappearing before the influence of the printing press, and the consequent extension of education.
