Download or read book Red Clocks written by Leni Zumas and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2018-01-16 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this ferociously imaginative novel, abortion is once again illegal in America, in-vitro fertilization is banned, and the Personhood Amendment grants rights of life, liberty, and property to every embryo. Five women. One question. What is a woman for? In a small Oregon fishing town, five very different women navigate these new barriers alongside age-old questions surrounding motherhood, identity, and freedom. Ro, a single high-school teacher, is trying to have a baby on her own, while also writing a biography of Eivv?r, a little-known 19th-century female polar explorer. Susan is a frustrated mother of two, trapped in a crumbling marriage. Mattie is the adopted daughter of doting parents and one of Ro's best students, who finds herself pregnant with nowhere to turn. And Gin is the gifted, forest-dwelling herbalist, or "mender," who brings all their fates together when she's arrested and put on trial in a frenzied modern-day witch hunt. Red Clocks is at once a riveting drama, whose mysteries unfold with magnetic energy, and a shattering novel of ideas. In the vein of Margaret Atwood and Eileen Myles, Leni Zumas fearlessly explores the contours of female experience, evoking The Handmaid's Tale for a new millennium. This is a story of resilience, transformation, and hope in tumultuous -- even frightening -- times.
Download or read book Boojums All the Way Through written by N. David Mermin and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 1990-03-15 with total page 338 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Boojums All the Way Through is a collection of essays that deals in a variety of ways with the problem of communicating modern physics to both physicists and non-physicists. The author is Professor David Mermin, a well-known theoretical physicist, who recently won the first Julius Edgar Lileinfeld prize of the American Physical Society 'for his remarkable clarity and wit as a lecturer to nonspecialists on difficult subjects'. David Mermin's wry humour is clearly apparent in most of these articles, but even those that are more serious are characterized by a liveliness and commitment to finding startlingly simple ways of presenting ideas that are traditionally regarded as complex. This book will appeal to physicists at all levels, to mathematicians, scientists and engineers, and indeed to anyone who enjoys reading non-technical accounts of new ways of looking at modern science.
Download or read book Routledge Library Editions Philosophy of Time written by Various Authors and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2021-03-05 with total page 1518 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Reissuing five works originally published between 1937 and 1991, this collection contains books addressing the subject of time, from a mostly philosophic point of view but also of interest to those in the science and mathematics worlds. These texts are brought back into print in this small set of works addressing how we think about time, the history of the philosophy of time, the measurement of time, theories of relativity and discussions of the wider thinking about time and space, among other aspects. One volume is a thorough bibliography collating references on the subject of time across many disciplines.
Download or read book A Treatise on Time and Space written by J. R. Lucas and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-10-10 with total page 328 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Originally published in 1976. This comprehensive study discusses in detail the philosophical, mathematical, physical, logical and theological aspects of our understanding of time and space. The text examines first the many different definitions of time that have been offered, beginning with some of the puzzles arising from our awareness of the passage of time and shows how time can be understood as the concomitant of consciousness. In considering time as the dimension of change, the author obtains a transcendental derivation of the concept of space, and shows why there has to be only one dimension of time and three of space, and why Kant was not altogether misguided in believing the space of our ordinary experience to be Euclidean. The concept of space-time is then discussed, including Lorentz transformations, and in an examination of the applications of tense logic the author discusses the traditional difficulties encountered in arguments for fatalism. In the final sections he discusses eternity and the beginning and end of the universe. The book includes sections on the continuity of space and time, on the directedness of time, on the differences between classical mechanics and the Special and General theories of relativity, on the measurement of time, on the apparent slowing down of moving clocks, and on time and probability.
Download or read book A Silent Clock written by Kevin Ma and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2012-06 with total page 225 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Inside the bubble of the Kingsley School, a boarding preparatory academy with complexities inextricably intertwined with the school's reputation, lie a spectrum of hatred, jealousy, and competition that manifests itself throughout the student body. Thomas Walther, a new sophomore, enters Kingsley with only the desire to continue his family's legacy, but faces unexpected challenges in not only the rigorous academics, but also in his life. Thomas, when met with the Red Clock Order, a longstanding secret society with a history of strong connections, confronts his greatest difficulty at Kingsley. His ability and integrity are put to the test as he struggles to maintain his sanity in a battle with the hardships of schoolwork, friends, family, and the society while gradually slipping away from reality."--Back cover
Download or read book The Language of Dystopia written by Jessica Norledge and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2022 with total page 253 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book presents an extended account of the language of dystopia, exploring the creativity and style of dystopian narratives and mapping the development of the genre from its early origins through to contemporary practice. Drawing upon stylistic, cognitive-poetic and narratological approaches, the work proposes a stylistic profile of dystopia, arguing for a reader-led discussion of genre that takes into account reader subjectivity and personal conceptualisations of prototypicality. In examining and identifying those aspects of language that characterise dystopian narratives and the experience of reading dystopian fictions, the work discusses in particular the manipulation and construction of dystopian languages, the conceptualisation of dystopian worlds, the reading of dystopian minds, the projection of dystopian ethics, the unreliability of dystopian refraction, and the evolution and hybridity of the dystopian genre. Jessica Norledge is part of the Applied English Team at the University of Nottingham, UK, where she teaches across Literary Linguistics and Applied Linguistics. She specialises in the cognitive poetics of emotion and the language of dystopia, having published on the dystopian short story, dystopian epistolary, dystopian minds, and the experience of reading dystopian fiction.

Download or read book The Palgrave Handbook of Reproductive Justice and Literature written by Beth Widmaier Capo and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2022-10-12 with total page 662 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This handbook offers a collection of scholarly essays that analyze questions of reproductive justice throughout its cultural representation in global literature and film. It offers analysis of specific texts carefully situated in their evolving historical, economic, and cultural contexts. Reproductive justice is taken beyond the American setting in which the theory and movement began; chapters apply concepts to international realities and literatures from different countries and cultures by covering diverse genres of cultural production, including film, television, YouTube documentaries, drama, short story, novel, memoir, and self-help literature. Each chapter analyzes texts from within the framework of reproductive justice in an interdisciplinary way, including English, Japanese, Italian, Spanish, and German language, literature and culture, comparative literature, film, South Asian fiction, Canadian theatre, writing, gender studies, Deaf studies, disability studies, global health and medical humanities, and sociology. Academics, graduate students and advanced undergraduate students in Literature, Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies, Cultural Studies, Motherhood Studies, Comparative Literature, History, Sociology, the Medical Humanities, Reproductive Justice, and Human Rights are the main audience of the volume.
Download or read book The Elements of Relativity written by David M. Wittman and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2018-05-10 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Relativity has much to offer for a well-rounded education. Yet books on relativity either assume a strong background in physics and math, aimed at advanced physics students, or, alternatively, offer a broad description with little intellectual challenge. This book bridges the gap. It aims at readers with essentially no physics or math background, who still find it rewarding to think rigorously. The book takes a "thinking tools" approach, by first making readers comfortable with a new thinking tool and then applying it to learn more about how nature works. By the end of the book, readers will have collected a versatile toolbox and will be comfortable using the tools to think about and really understand the intriguing phenomena they may have only heard about, including the twin paradox, black holes, and time travel. End-of-chapter exercises span a range of difficulty, allowing adventurous readers to stretch their understanding further as desired. Students who have studied, or are studying, relativity at a more mathematical level will also find the book useful for a more conceptual understanding.
