McLelland's pioneering study charts the history of foreign language learning and teaching in the UK over five centuries (1500-2000), taking German as her case study. From the first grammar of German for English speakers, published in 1680, McLelland traces the growth in interest in German for travel and trade, and its rapid increase in prestige in the eighteenth century as a language of literary merit, before German became established in schools and universities from the second quarter of the nineteenth century onwards. Taking hundreds of textbooks as her primary sources, as well as the pronouncements of teachers, examiners and policy-makers, McLelland considers the changing reasons for teaching and learning German, and the consequent changes in teaching methods (including the influence of the Reform Movement around 1900, innovations such as language laboratories, and, more recently, the communicative approach). She analyses changes in how the German language was presented, including advances in how the sound system and word order were described. Finally, and crucially, she considers how German culture and history have been represented to English-speaking learners, particularly over the past hundred years, a century of troubled Anglo-German cultural relations. A chronological bibliography of several hundred textbooks for the period 1600-2000 will serve as a stimulus for further research.

This surprising study draws together the disparate fields of postcolonial theory and book history in a challenging and illuminating way. Robert Fraser proposes that we now look beyond the traditional methods of the Anglo-European bibliographic paradigm, and learn to appreciate instead the diversity of shapes that verbal expression has assumed across different societies. This change of attitude will encourage students and researchers to question developmentally conceived models of communication, and move instead to a re-formulation of just what is meant by a book, an author, a text. Fraser illustrates his combined approach with comparative case studies of print, script and speech cultures in South Asia and Africa, before panning out to examine conflicts and paradoxes arising in parallel contexts. The re-orientation of approach and the freshness of view offered by this volume will foster understanding and creative collaboration between scholars of different outlooks, while offering a radical critique to those identified in its concluding section as purveyors of global literary power.

Focused on the recently hotly debated topic at the crossroads of various human and social sciences, this book investigates the emergence of the cosmopolitan idea of literature and its impact on the reconfiguration of the European and non-European political spaces. The birthplace of this idea is its designers’ traumatic experience as induced by the disconcerting condition of their abode.The thesis is that the eighteenth and nineteenth century’s cosmopolitan projects that grow out of such deep frustrations trace the twentieth century’s global democracy. This hidden origin of cosmopolitan projects dismantles the usual European representation of modernization as universal progress as myopic. Rather than being a generous action of prominent subjects such as Voltaire, Kant, and Goethe, or Bakhtin, Derrida and Deleuze, cosmopolitanism is an enforced reaction of the instances dispossessed by injury that search for the ways of healing it. Yet as soon as their remedy establishes itself as the ground for universal reconciliation, it risks suppressing other’s trauma, i.e. turns from politics into a police. Articulating the author’s position in the recent debates on the structure of democracy, the epilogue suggests an alternative strategy.

Pindar's Eyes is a ground-breaking interdisciplinary exploration of the interactions between Greek lyric poetry and visual and material culture in the early fifth century BCE. It draws on case studies of classical art and texts to open up analysis of the genre to the wider theme of aestheticexperience in early classical Greece, with particular focus on the poetic mechanisms through which Pindar's victory odes use visual and material culture to engage their audiences. Complete readings of Nemean 5, Nemean 8, and Pythian 1 reveal the poet's deep interest in the relations between lyricpoetry and commemorative and religious sculpture, as well as other significant visual phenomena, while literary studies of his evocation of cultural attitudes through elaborate use of the lyric first person are combined with art-historical treatments of ecphrasis, of image and text, and of art'sframing of ritual experience in ancient Greece. This specific aesthetic approach is expanded through fresh treatments of Simonides' and Bacchylides' own engagements with material culture, as well as an account of Pindaric themes in the Aeginetan logoi of Herodotus' Histories. These come together tooffer not just a novel perspective on the relationship between art and text in Pindaric poetry, but to give rise to new claims about the nature of classical Greek visuality and ritual subjectivity, and to foster a richer understanding of the ways in which classical poetry and art shaped the livesand experiences of its ancient consumers.

Gordon Smith has been hailed as "Britain's most accurate medium" and his life has fascinated not only his fans, but has intrigued scientists alike. In this autobiographical book, Gordon opens a window onto his life to give readers an idea of what the world looks and feels like for a medium. He walks the reader through the diverse situations he has found himself in and gives detailed insight into the many readings he has given. He explains what it actually feels like when Spirits communicate through him and answers many of the questions about death that haunt the bereaved. Yet the most fascinating thing that Gordon reveals is about his role as a medium: overthrowing the stereotypes, Gordon shows that a medium's job is not just to converse with Spirits, but to heal the living. When people are grieving the loss of a loved one, Gordon's messages can ease grief, answer unresolved questions, bring comfort, give hope, and reassure the living of the peaceful afterlife that their loved ones have passed on to. Gordon shares many stories of people who have found peace and resolution from his messages. These are people who have been so affected by Gordon's work that they are happy for him to tell their story in this book with the desire of helping others who are experiencing pain and sorrow. Gordon hopes that this intimate and candid book will offer great wisdom, comfort, and practical advice to his thousands of readers.This is a repackage of Through My Eyes (ISBN: 9781401915254)

Body Language (FREE Bonus Included)Advanced Body Language Guide to Master Body Language in 24 HoursBody language can help a person define the real emotion behind spoken or unspoken words. Adults can simply, and properly, know if a kid is frightened by the thunder if they see the kid shaking and covering their ears with their hands. However, there are wrong ideas about reading body language that can lead to miscommunication, except if the language shown by the entire body is read.Our eyes are known to be the windows to our soul and it must be this idea that formed the biggest myth about reading body language. It's commonly thought that when someone avoids, or doesn't keep an eye contact, chances are, that person is lying. Though commonly understood, it's a false impression. People that lie often can actually keep long eye contact as they are aware that a lot of people think looking away from eye contact indicates a lie. Some people that are not lying may not maintain eye contact because they're just telling a fact, and they don't feel like they don't have anything to prove.The whole body language that is used has to be monitored on top of the eye gesture. Fiddling, tapping fingers, or running finger through the hair with little to no eye contact means that the person is not comfortable with the surrounding or with the topic being discussed, yet eyes contact on a distant place by someone crossing his arm indicates seriousness or being attentive to the person he was talking to.Correctly body language reading can provide a person vision into the feelings, thoughts, and emotions of someone. In order to read precisely, though, you have to keep in mind that seeing the language or movements of the whole body instead of looking at every single part of the body is different from reading the other parts.This book will help you to accurate you learn how to read body language within 24 hours.
