Download PDF Edward Said Book by Adel Iskander Full eBook and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 2010 with total page 548 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Edward Said was an intellectual with a passion for justice and he allowed nothing to deter him in its pursuit. Edward Said: A Legacy of Emancipation and Representation reflects this."--Archbishop Desmond Tutu "Edward Said was the great public intellectual in late 20th century United States of America. Yet the many dimensions of his genius have yet to be fully appreciated. This indispensable book is a grand response to this urgent need!"--Cornel West, Princeton University "Edward Said: Emancipation and Representation explores themes of aesthetics, identity, colonialism, Palestine, Israel, Zionism and intellectuals. Each section includes path-breaking new work in the growing field of Edward Said Studies. No other existing book deals with Said's work from so many varied perspectives."--Hamid Dabashi, Columbia University "These fine essays bring sympathetic yet critical attention to Said's remarkable range of contributions to politics and to the study of literature and culture. Reading them, one gets a vivid sense not merely of his ideas and his arguments but his vast yet unsentimental humanity."--Akeel Bilgrami, Columbia University "This remarkable volume helps to ensure that our conversation with Edward Said continues; all the articles in it draw their material or their inspiration from his work, and their diversity and richness are a testament to his extraordinary legacy."--Ahdaf Soueif, author of The Map of Love: A Novel, Booker Prize finalist "The very distinguished and diverse group of scholars who have contributed to this volume explore and illuminate the intellectual and political dimensions, and profound impact, of Edward W. Said's life and work. Their original and lively essays enrich our understanding of Said's writings, and the book as a whole is both testimony and tribute to the continuing importance, vitality and productivity of Said's legacy as a scholar, public intellectual, cultural critic and political activist."--Zachary Lockman, author of Contending Visions of the Middle East: the History and Politics of Orientalism "In this remarkable and important book, the authors interact with Edward Said in so many different ways that the reader is both amazed and out of breath. This book makes one think."--Immanuel Wallerstein, Yale University "This timely volume takes seriously the vast and challenging writings of Edward Said as they traverse the praxis of humanism, the literary contours of orientalism, and the intransigent and persistent critical of colonial power and the Palestinian struggle for freedom. A wide range of authors contest the the proper stance and trajectory of Said's work, the ramifications of his work for literary studies, aesthetics, and politics, the status of humanism and secular criticism. They converge, however, in appreciating the passionate critique of colonial occupation and dispossession from the perspective of the displaced and the refugee. Taken together, these essays show how academic reflection can and must enter the public world at precisely those junctures that the border patrols of thought would shut down. They show that the critical responsibility of intellectuals consists in marshalling media for articulating loss and hope, insisting on a presence for those whose lives are threatened time and again with erasure. This is an important and rich volume that continues the critical task of Said in a plurivocal mode, establishing the unceasing intellectual force and fecundity of Said's work."--Judith Butler, University of California, Berkeley

Download PDF The Map of Consciousness Explained Book by David R. Hawkins, M.D., Ph.D. Full eBook and published by Hay House, Inc. This book was released on 2020-10-20 with total page 401 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An accessible exploration of best-selling author's most famous work, The Map of Consciousness, that helps readers experience healing and transcendence. We are all born with a level of consciousness, an energetic frequency within the vast field of consciousness. And with The Map of Consciousness, we can truly understand the total spectrum of human consciousness. Using a unique muscle-testing method, Dr. David R. Hawkins conducted more than 250,000 calibrations during 20 years of research to define a range of values, attitudes, and emotions that correspond to levels of consciousness. This range of values-along with a logarithmic scale of 1 to 1,000-became the Map of Consciousness, which Dr. Hawkins first wrote about in his best-selling book, Power vs. Force. With the Map, Dr. David R. Hawkins laid out the entire spectrum of consciousness, from the lower levels of Shame, Guilt, Apathy, Fear, Anger, and Pride; to Courage, Acceptance, and Reason; all the way up to the more expanded levels of Love, Ecstasy, Peace, and Enlightenment. These "higher" energy fields are a carrier wave of immense life energy. An essential primer on the late Dr. David R. Hawkins's teachings on human consciousness and their associated energy fields, The Map of Consciousness Explained offers readers an introduction and deeper understanding of the Map, with visual charts and practical applications to help them heal, recover, and evolve to higher levels of consciousness and energy. This book is a light unto the path of any individual who wants to become more effective in any area of life.

Download PDF In the Memory of the Map Book by Christopher Norment Full eBook and published by University of Iowa Press. This book was released on 2012-03-15 with total page 262 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Throughout his life, maps have been a source of imagination and wonder for Christopher Norment. Mesmerized by them since the age of eight or nine, he found himself courted and seduced by maps, which served functional and allegorical roles in showing him worlds that he might come to know and helping him understand worlds that he had already explored. Maps may have been the stuff of his dreams, but they sometimes drew him away from places where he should have remained firmly rooted. In the Memory of the Map explores the complex relationship among maps, memory, and experience—what might be called a “cartographical psychology” or “cartographical history.” Interweaving a personal narrative structured around a variety of maps, with stories about maps as told by scholars, poets, and fiction writers, this book provides a dazzlingly rich personal and intellectual account of what many of us take for granted. A dialog between desire and the maps of his life, an exploration of the pleasures, utilitarian purposes, benefits, and character of maps, this rich and powerful personal narrative is the matrix in which Norment embeds an exploration of how maps function in all our lives. Page by page, readers will confront the aesthetics, mystery, function, power, and shortcomings of maps, causing them to reconsider the role that maps play in their lives.

These are some of the themes explored in this collection of new fiction from African writers living outside the continent. The writers of the stories and novel extracts come from countries as diverse as Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, Uganda, Ghana, Tanzania and the Sudan. They include both established writers, such as Buchi Emecheta, Ama Ata Aidoo and Abdulrazak Gurnah, and many exciting new voices.
