A Dictionary of Literary Symbols
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | ISBN: 0521000025 | edition 2001 | PDF | 271 pages | 2,2 mb

This is the first dictionary of symbols to be based on literature, rather than "universal" pyschological archetypes, myths or esoterica. Michael Ferber has assembled nearly two hundred main entries clearly explaining and illustrating the literary symbols that we all encounter (such as swan, rose, moon, gold), along with hundreds of cross-references and quotations. The dictionary concentrates on English literature, but its entries range widely from the Bible and classical authors to the twentieth century, taking in American and European literatures. Its informed style and rich references will make this book an essential tool not only for literary and classical scholars, but for all students of literature.

Following the tragic kidnapping of his brother’s wife, "Third Master" reluctantly submits to pressure from his overbearing father.

But the idealistic Third Master has always questioned his father's autocratic rule and ethics. The tense relationship is further complicated by Third Masters undying love for his beautiful young stepmother, his first and only love stolen from him by his own father. Embarking on a metaphysical journey, Third Master must decide whether to follow his father's path or find his own. Greed, deception and jealousy surface under the pressures of war and the impending change from silver to paper bills…

The Culture of War in China: Empire and the Military under the Qing Dynasty (International Library of War Studies)
Joanna Waley-Cohen| ISBN: 1845111591 | PDF | 200 pages | 2006 | 5 MB

In this book, Joanna Waley-Cohen overturns conventional wisdom to put warfare at the heart of seventeenth and eighteenth century China, showing how emperors underpinned military expansion with a wide-ranging cultural campaign intended to bring military success, and the martial values associated with it, into the mainstream of cultural life.
