Sims shares the often misunderstood motivations, and emotional highs and lows of her involvement in animal rescue and transport. Be prepared to experience a plethora of emotions as you read the incredible stories of the people and animals featured in this book. Sims' stories are real and as such contain stories of animals that have been saved from shelters and neglectful/abusive situations. Rest assured that for every painful first impression, there are wonderful end results as each of the animals featured in this book has found lasting love and permanent homes. The main purpose of this book is to raise awareness of the problems facing our society in regards to animal welfare. Sims hopes to motivate people to reconsider such things as spaying/neutering and chaining of animals, and to consider becoming part of the solution.

Tales of Passion, Tales of Woe is the much-awaited sequel to Sandra Gulland's highly acclaimed first novel, The Many Lives & Secret Sorrows of Josephine B. Beginning in Paris in 1796, the saga continues as Josephine awakens to her new life as Mrs. Napoleon Bonaparte. Through her intimate diary entries and Napoleon's impassioned love letters, an astonishing portrait of an incredible woman emerges. Gulland transports us into the ballrooms and bedrooms of exquisite palaces and onto the blood-soaked fields of Napoleon's campaigns. As Napoleon marches to power, we witness, through Josephine, the political intrigues and personal betrayals -- both sexual and psychological -- that result in death, ruin, and victory for those closest to her.

Imprisonment and the Death Penalty in the Novels of the South, the title and context of this doctoral thesis, aims at a literary and cultural analysis of how the experience of confinement and the ensuing death penalty features in a selection of novels on prison and execution, mainly in the US-American South. The purpose is to analyze and show the effect the rigid use of power within prisons can and does have on death row inmates and their families, as represented in fiction. In this context my study is based on three questions: How do power and control over the incarcerated subject appear in the fictional novel? How far can an analogy be stated between reality and fiction in respect to incarceration and treatment of minorities, such as African Americans, juveniles, mentally retarded, and women? How has the representation of the villain changed within the 20th century, and does this change reflect a different perception of the criminal in society? My research includes fifteen novels depicting the life of the protagonist sentenced to death and one serving a life sentence in the time between 1925 and 2005 in the US American South. Protagonists are white or African American male convicts; some of them juvenile and/or mentally retarded. African American and white women are also represented as prisoners, but in a considerably lower number than their male counterparts. Reasons for this dissimilarity will be discussed in the chapter on women on death row. I have chosen a chronological approach in the selection of the texts in order to reflect cultural changes and continuity in the representation of the culprit and the execution of the law under the influence of power and control as mirrored in the chosen texts.

'A learned, wise, wonderfully written single volume history of a civilisation that I knew I should know more about' Tom Holland 'Masterful and engrossing...well-paced, eminently readable and well-timed. A must-read for those who want – and need – to know about the China of yesterday, today and tomorrow' Peter Frankopan China’s story is extraordinarily rich and dramatic. Now Michael Wood, one of the UK's pre-eminent historians, brings it all together in a major new one-volume history of China that is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand its burgeoning role in our world today. China is the oldest living civilisation on earth, but its history is still surprisingly little known in the wider world. Michael Wood's sparkling narrative, which mingles the grand sweep with local and personal stories, woven together with the author’s own travel journals, is an enthralling account of China’s 4000-year-old tradition, taking in life stationed on the Great Wall or inside the Forbidden City. The story is enriched with the latest archaeological and documentary discoveries; correspondence and court cases going back to the Qin and Han dynasties; family letters from soldiers in the real-life Terracotta Army; stories from Silk Road merchants and Buddhist travellers, along with memoirs and diaries of emperors, poets and peasants. In the modern era, the book is full of new insights, with the electrifying manifestos of the feminist revolutionaries Qiu Jin and He Zhen, extraordinary eye-witness accounts of the Japanese invasion, the Great Famine and the Cultural Revolution under Chairman Mao, and fascinating newly published sources for the great turning points in China’s modern history, including the Tiananmen Square crisis of 1989, and the new order of President Xi Jinping. A compelling portrait of a single civilisation over an immense period of time, the book is full of intimate detail and colourful voices, taking us from the desolate Mongolian steppes to the ultra-modern world of Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong. It also asks what were the forces that have kept China together for so long? Why was China overtaken by the west after the 18th century? What lies behind China’s extraordinary rise today? The Story of China tells a thrilling story of intense drama, fabulous creativity and deep humanity; a portrait of a country that will be of the greatest importance to the world in the twenty-first century.

In recent years, the emerging field of museum studies has seen rapid expansion in the critical study of museums and scholars started to question the institution and its functions. To contribute differentiated viewpoints to the currently evolving meta-discourse on the museum, this volume aims to investigate how the institution of the museum has been visualized and translated into different kinds of images and how these images have affected our perception of these institutions. In this interdisciplinary collection, scholars from a variety of academic backgrounds, including art history, heritage, museums studies and architectural history, explore a broad range of case studies stretching across the globe. The volume opens up debate about the epistemological and historiographical significance of a variety of different images and representations of the Art Museum, including the transformation or adaptation of the image of the art museum across periods and cultures. In this context, this volume aims to develop a new theoretical framework while proposing new methodological tools and resources for the analysis of museological representations on a global scale.

They also consider the artists' responses to foreign prototypes, travel and training, changing exhibition venues, and audience expectations. The persistence of certain themes--childhood, marriage, the family, and the community; the attainment and reinforcement of citizenship; attitudes toward race; the frontier as reality and myth; and the process and meaning of making art--underscores evolving styles and standards of storytelling. Divided into four chronological sections, the book begins with the years surrounding the American Revolution and the birth of the new republic, when painters such as Copley, Peale, and Samuel F.B. Morse incorporated stories within the expressive bounds of portraiture. During the Jacksonian and pre-Civil War decades from about 1830 to 1860, Mount, Bingham, Lilly Martin Spencer, and others painted genre scenes featuring lighthearted narratives that growing audiences for art could easily read and understand.
