Cable Confidence: A Guide to Textured Knitting by Sara Louise Harper
Think cables are too tricky to master? Debunk that myth today! Cabling is just a series of knits and purls. If you can knit and purl, you already have the foundation for making
gorgeous textured sweaters. A new knitting world will open up as soon as you learn the basics.

– Unlock the mysteries of reading stitch charts, using cable needles, swatching, and much more with this beginner friendly guide

– Start with the easiest stitches, and then move on to more complex techniques, one step at a time

– Knit up starter projects like pillows, scarves, and an afghan, and then move on to gorgeous pullovers and cardigans 14 projects in all

There are 5 very nice aran sweaters all classic mode which usually means drop down shoulders. What is interesting to me is the beauty of the aran combinations which is not so easy to design and with a pullover you do have more scope to do just that. For example, I find the cover sweater to be very aesthetically pleasing. The final sweater in the book, Ciaran pullover, is another stunning aran with a beautiful central cable pattern set off by mirrored cables on the sides. The Fiona vest uses an allover cable plus zipper. The first two sweaters are aimed for beginners with simpler cables. There are 9 pullovers, one v-neck cardigan, one cardigan vest, 3 pillows, one scarf, one felted bag and one hat. Photos in color are good as are the charts and schematics. Sizes go from finished chest of 36" to 54" in some examples. Most yarns called for are worsted weight or #4 on the yarn system. All the sleeves are done drop down which was the standard method until about a year ago and this book was probably begun a few years back. The sleeves don't look very good on the models as they are longer than the models' arms and also appear to be too wide. Certainly the more advanced knitter can change the sleeves to fit more attractively. For anyone interested in aran and cabled sweaters, this is an excellent choice.

Literature and Film in the Third Reich

Literature and Film in the Third Reich By Karl-Heinz Schoeps
Publisher: Cam..den Ho..use 2003 | 379 Pages | ISBN: 157113252X | PDF | 5 MB

Literature and Film in the Third Reich
This book is the first survey in English of literature and film in Nazi Germany. It treats not only works sympathetic to National Socialism, but also works of the so-called Inner Emigration, of the resistance, and those written in prisons and concentration camps. Much of this literature is not easily accessible in German, and not available at all in English translation. Historical and ideological context is provided in chapters covering influential works of the time such as Alfred Rosenberg's The Myth of the Twentieth Century and Houston Stewart Chamberlain's The Foundations of the Nineteenth Century. Schoeps also analyzes Nazi cultural policies, fascist histories of literature, and the role of German studies and Germanists in the Nazi movement. A major section of the book is devoted to film, then a relatively new medium of communication whose propaganda value was clearly recognized by Goebbels, the minister for propaganda and president of the Reich's Chamber of Culture. One of the most interesting areas of research in recent years is the relationship between Hitler's cultural commissars, in particular Goebbels, and the literature and film production of the Nazi years.

Buddhist Hagiography in Early Japan: Images of Compassion in the Gyoki Tradition
Hagiographies or idealized biographies which recount the lives of saints, bodhisattvas and other charismatic figures have been the meeting place for myth and experience. In medieval Europe, the 'lives of saints' were read during liturgical celebrations and the texts themselves were treated as sacred objects. In Japan, it was believed that those who read the biographies of lofty monks would acquire merit. Since hagiographies were written or compiled by 'believers', the line between fantasy and reality was often obscured. This study of the bodhisattva Gyoki – regarded as the monk who started the largest social welfare movement in Japan – illustrates how Japanese Buddhist hagiographers chose to regard a single monk's charitable activities as a miraculous achievement that shaped the course of Japanese history.

A Magnificent Obsession: Victoria, Albert, and the Death That Changed the British Monarchy

Helen Rappaport, "A Magnificent Obsession: Victoria, Albert, and the Death That Changed the British Monarchy"
English | 2012 | ISBN-10: 0312621051 | EPUB, MOBI | 352 pages | 6 MB

A Magnificent Obsession: Victoria, Albert, and the Death That Changed the British Monarchy
As she did in her critically acclaimed The Last Days of the Romanovs, Helen Rappaport brings a compelling documentary feel to the story of this royal marriage and of the queen's obsessive love for her husband – a story that began as fairy tale and ended in tragedy.

After the untimely death of Prince Albert, the queen and her nation were plunged into a state of grief so profound that this one event would dramatically alter the shape of the British monarchy. For Britain had not just lost a prince: during his twenty year marriage to Queen Victoria, Prince Albert had increasingly performed the function of King in all but name. The outpouring of grief after Albert's death was so extreme, that its like would not be seen again until the death of Princess Diana 136 years later.

Drawing on many letters, diaries and memoirs from the Royal Archives and other neglected sources, as well as the newspapers of the day, Rappaport offers a new perspective on this compelling historical psychodrama–the crucial final months of the prince's life and the first long, dark ten years of the Queen's retreat from public view. She draws a portrait of a queen obsessed with her living husband and – after his death – with his enduring place in history. Magnificent Obsession will also throw new light on the true nature of the prince's chronic physical condition, overturning for good the 150-year old myth that he died of typhoid fever.

The Curly Hair Book: Or How Men Can Now Rock Their Waves, Coils And Kinks
Great-looking, healthy, luscious waves, coils or kinks as a modern male with curly hair, is that really possible without having to become a hair diva or spend glorious amounts of time in hair salons retouching your locks while gossiping with your hairstylist?

The Curly Hair Book: Or How Men Can Now Rock Their Waves, Coils and Kinks is the essential hair manual for the modern-day curly haired male.

Having already paved the online way for curly men, this book is Rogelio's next revolutionary step in his path to inspire, motivate and help those men with waves, coils and kinks to finally embrace and optimally address their hair and, once and for all, make something positive out of such a visible personal trait. Thus, Rogelio, himself a curly haired guy, has written this book for modern males who seek the perfect follicular blend of convenience and optimal results.

This book is part of Rogelio's hair revolution to get men to finally sport awesome manes and embrace their shapely hair so as to integrate their waves, coils and kinks into their own core as males. You will find this book of great benefit if:

– You have hair that is wavy, curly, kinky, afro-textured, coiled or of unexplainable shape.
– You are balding and need a no-bull book to preserve your waves, coils or kinks.

This version of the Beatles legend smoothed the rough edges and filled in the fault lines, and for more than forty years this manicured version of the Beatles story has sustained as truth, until now. The product of almost a decade of research, hundreds of unprecedented interviews, and the discovery of scores of never-before-revealed documents, Bob Spitz's The Beatles is the biography fans have been waiting for.Never before has a biography of musicians been so immersive and textured. We are there in the McCartney living room when Paul and John learn to write songs together; backstage the night Ringo takes over on drums; in seedy German strip clubs where George lies about his age so the band can perform; and at the Ed Sullivan Show as America discovers the joy and the madness. From Shea to San Francisco, through the London night, on to India, through marmalade skies, across the universe, all the way to a rooftop concert and one last moment of laughter and music.It is all here, the highs and the lows, the love and the rivalry, the drugs, the tears, the thrill, the magic never again to be repeated. Bob Spitz's masterpiece is, at long last, the biography the Beatles deserve."

The Myth of the Strong Leader: Political Leadership in the Modern Age

The Myth of the Strong Leader: Political Leadership in the Modern Age by Archie Brown
2014 | ISBN: 0465027660 | English | 480 pages | EPUB | 0.65 MB

The Myth of the Strong Leader: Political Leadership in the Modern Age
All too frequently, leadership is reduced to a simple dichotomy: the strong versus the weak. Yet, there are myriad ways to exercise effective political leadership?as well as different ways to fail. We blame our leaders for economic downfalls and praise them for vital social reforms, but rarely do we question what makes some leaders successful while others falter. In this magisterial and wide-ranging survey of political leadership over the past hundred years, renowned Oxford politics professor Archie Brown challenges the widespread belief that strong leaders ? meaning those who dominate their colleagues and the policy-making process ? are the most successful and admirable.

In reality, only a minority of political leaders will truly make a lasting difference. Though we tend to dismiss more collegial styles of leadership as weak, it is often the most cooperative leaders who have the greatest impact. Drawing on extensive research and decades of political analysis and experience, Brown illuminates the achievements, failures and foibles of a broad array of twentieth century politicians. Whether speaking of redefining leaders like Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Johnson, and Margaret Thatcher, who expanded the limits of what was politically possible during their time in power, or the even rarer transformational leaders who played a decisive role in bringing about systemic change ? Charles de Gaulle, Mikhail Gorbachev and Nelson Mandela, among them ? Brown challenges our commonly held beliefs about political efficacy and strength.

Overturning many of our assumptions about the twentieth century's most important figures, Brown's conclusions are both original and enlightening. The Myth of the Strong Leader compels us to reassess the leaders who have shaped our world ? and to reconsider how we should choose and evaluate those who will lead us into the future.
