Personal Identity and Resurrection: How Do We Survive Our Death?

Personal Identity and Resurrection: How Do We Survive Our Death? by Georg GasserWhat happens to us when we die? According to Christian faith, we will rise again bodily from the dead. This claim raises a series of philosophical and theological conundrums: is it rational to hope for life after death in bodily form? Will it truly be we who are raised again or will it be post-mortem duplicates of us? How can personal identity be secured? What is God's role in resurrection and everlasting life? In response to these conundrums, this book presents the first ever joint work of leading philosophers and theologians on life after death. This is an impressive demonstration of interdisciplinary...

The Complete Russian Folktale: v. 5: Russian Legends

The Complete Russian Folktale: v. 5: Russian Legends by Jack V. HaneyRichly represented in the Russian folktale tradition, the legends are religious tales (types 750-849 in the Aame-Thompson index) in a peasant village setting. Among the standard themes is the return of Christ, who wanders through rural Russia with his disciples. Satan appears here too, as do a cast of spirits and lesser devils. Pre-Christian gods may be recognized in tales of saints Ilya and Nikolai (Elijah and Saint Nicholas). The hapless peasant in these tales - cheated, betrayed, impoverished, foolish, orphaned, crippled - take the reader deep into the traditional village culture of Russia...

Contradiction in the Book of Proverbs: The Deep Waters of Counsel

Contradiction in the Book of Proverbs: The Deep Waters of Counsel by Peter HattonDespite the welcome revival of scholarly interest in Biblical Wisdom, the Book of Proverbs remains neglected. It continues to be seen as a disorganised repository of traditional banalities, while Job and Qohelet are viewed as more exciting texts, in revolt against Proverbs' conventional wisdom. Contradiction in the Book of Proverbs argues that this misleading consensus owes more to scholarly presuppositions than to the content of Proverbs; it sees Proverbs as a challenging work, one that aims to provoke a critical appropriation of wisdom and in which diverse sources have been skilfully brought...

Legal Pluralism in Conflict: Coping with Cultural Diversity in Law

Legal Pluralism in Conflict: Coping with Cultural Diversity in Law by Prakash Shah

Legal Pluralism in Conflict offers a new theoretical perspective for conceptualising and analysing the relationship between ethnic minority laws and the official legal order.

Examining the limits of liberal legal thought in light of a contemporary plurality of ethnic identifications and religious beliefs, Prakash Shah takes up the case for a 'legal pluralism' that views ethnic minority laws in interaction with the official British legal order. This form of legal pluralism is not, however, without conflict. This book pursues a series of case studies that critically consider why and how state laws...

Roland Barthes

Roland Barthes by Rick RylanceThis comprehensive introductory study considers the full range of Barthes' work - from his early structuralist phase, through his post-structuralist explorations of "Text", to his late writings. In looking at the late work, often of an autobiographical or personal-lyrical nature, Rylance examines the relationship between the critical and the personal, as well as Barthes' relation to developments in feminism and postmodernism. Throughout, Barthes' writings are presented as paradigmatic of many of the major shifts in intellectual opinion in the post-war period. The book is part of a series reflecting...

As a teenager, Joyce worked as the village post lady and danced with airmen from America and Canada, before meeting Edgar Abbey, the only man she ever loved: Married on a snowy day in 1948, they were a dedicated couple, raising a family and working together at Goole Municipal Baths until their retirement.

What they did right and, even more importantly, what they did wrong."

Remaking Russia: Voices from within: Voices from within

Remaking Russia: Voices from within: Voices from within by Heyward Isham & Richard PipesIn the words of George F. Kennan, Russia remains a region where "the conflicts of outlook and persuasion" have been as violent as any seen in our century.

Looking beyond the horizon and cutting beneath the headlines, in Remaking Russia eighteen distinguished essayists of diverse backgrounds offer original insights on the three central questions Russians are now debating among themselves: Who are we? Where...
