Online fiction. The Story of the Great Weep A newly imported King of England finds a harsh - but effective - way of dealing with the country's feminists.
In Peasants, Warriors, and Wives, Keith Moxey examines woodcut images from the German Reformation that have often been ignored as a crude and inferior form of artistic production. In this richly illustrated study, Moxey argues that while they may not satisfy received notions of "art," they neverthe constitute an important dimension of the visual culture of the period.
Far from being manifestations of universal public opinion, as a cursory acquaintance with their subject matter might suggest, such prints were the means by which the reformed attitudes of the middle and upper classes were disseminated to a broad popular audience.
Call it the forgotten rivalry. The Cincinnati Reds and the Los Angeles Dodgers may not share geographical boundaries, and today they don't even play in the same division, but for a period of time in the 1970s Dodgers vs. Reds was the best rivalry in Major League Baseball. They boasted the biggest names of the game--Johnny Bench, Steve Garvey, Pete Rose, Don Sutton, and Ron Cey, to name a few--and appeared in the World Series seven out of nine years. In Cincinnati Red and Dodger Blue: Baseball's Greatest Forgotten Rivalry, Tom Van Riper provides a fresh look at these two powerhouse teams and the circumstances that made them so pivotal. Van Riper delves into the players, managers, executives, and broadcasters from the rivalry whose impact on baseball continued beyond the 1970s--including the first recipient of Tommy John surgery (Tommy John himself), the all-time hit king turned gambling pariah (Pete Rose), and two young announcers who would soon go on to national prominence (Al Michaels and Vin Scully).
In addition, Van Riper recounts in detail the 1973 season when both teams were at or near their peak form, particularly the extra-inning nail-biter between the Reds and Dodgers that took place on September 21 and effectively decided the divisional race. Cincinnati Red and Dodger Blue includes never-before-published interviews with former players from the rivalry, providing a personal and in-depth look at this decade in baseball full of upheaval and change. Baseball's realignment in 1994 may have rendered this great rivalry nearly forgotten, but its story is one that will be enjoyed by baseball fans and historians of all generations.
B01N74I9O8 Alternate Cover Edition Do you believe in angels? What about angels with attitude? Abigail Benson’s life could have ended when a car crash on a wet, deserted Southern California road leaves her injured, and barely conscious. Instead, a mysterious stranger keeps her awake until help arrives, before vanishing without a trace, leaving Abbie to wonder if she has a Guardian Angel watching over her. When she meets the intriguing Beck, she quickly learns that not only are angels real, but so are demons, and her life is balanced precariously between the two; her Guardian Angel and soulmate, and the terrifying Silas whose demonic power can send her to an eternal hell of pain and torture.
As the age-old war between good and evil manifests in a battle for her life, nobody is safe until Abbie realizes her purpose, and the young lovers find themselves racing against time and fate in an ethereal love story that challenges the very meaning of life and death.
