Summary:

Darcy Patel sangat senang novelnya, Afterworlds, akan diterbitkan. Dia memutuskan menunda kuliah dan tinggal di New York City, tanpa apartemen dan tanpa teman. Untunglah Darcy dibantu para penulis lain mengenal kota itu dan memasuki dunia penerbitan yang menakjubkan. Dalam setahun, dia selesai menulis buku, menghadapi para kritikus, dan jatuh cinta. Kisah Darcy dituturkan silih berganti dengan novelnya—thriller seru tentang Lizzie, remaja yang pindah ke Afterworld untuk menyelamatkan diri dari serangan teroris. Afterworld adalah dunia di antara alam fana dan alam baka, tempat banyak kisah mengerikan. Seperti Darcy, Lizzie juga jatuh cinta sampai muncul ancaman baru, dan bakat istimewanya mungkin tidak cukup untuk melindungi orang-orang yang ia sayangi. Konsep yang ambisius, dieksekusi dengan bagus. —Publishers Weekly, starred review

Summary:

This issue moves beyond the binary of life and death to explore how the gray areas in between--precarious life, slow death--call into question assumptions about the social in social theory. In these "collateral afterworlds," where the line between life and death is blurred, the presumed attachments of sociality to life and solitude to death are no longer reliable. The contributors focus on the daily experiences of enduring a difficult present unhinged from any redeeming future, addressing topics such as drug treatment centers in Mexico City, solitary death in Japan, Inuit colonial violence, human regard for animal life in India, and intimacies forged between grievously wounded soldiers. Engaging history, film, ethics, and poetics, the contributors explore the modes of intimacy, obligation, and ethical investment that arise in these spaces. Contributors. Anne Alison, Naisargi N. Dave, Angela Garcia, Fady Joudah, Julie Livingston, Elizabeth A. Povinelli, Solmaz Sharif, Lisa Stevenson, Zo� H. Wool

Summary:

Islamic conceptions of heaven and hell began in the seventh century as an early doctrinal innovation, but by the twelfth century, these notions had evolved into a highly formalized ideal of perfection. In tracking this transformation, Nerina Rustomji reveals the distinct material culture and aesthetic vocabulary Muslims developed to understand heaven and hell and identifies the communities and strategies of defense that took shape around the promise of a future world. Ideas of the afterworld profoundly influenced daily behaviors in Islamic society and gave rise to a code of ethics that encouraged abstinence from sumptuous objects, such as silver vessels and silk, so they could be appreciated later in heaven. Rustomji conducts a meticulous study of texts and images and carefully connects the landscape and social dynamics of the afterworld with earthly models and expectations. Male servants and female companions become otherworldly objects in the afterlife, and stories of rewards and punishment helped preachers promote religious reform. By employing material culture as a method of historical inquiry, Rustomji points to the reflections, discussions, and constructions that actively influenced Muslims' picture of the afterworld, culminating in a distinct religious aesthetic.

Summary:

The contributors to Passages and Afterworlds explore death and its rituals across the Caribbean, drawing on ethnographic theories shaped by a deep understanding of the region's long history of violent encounters, exploitation, and cultural diversity. Examining the relationship between living bodies and the spirits of the dead, the contributors investigate the changes in cosmologies and rituals in the cultural sphere of death in relation to political developments, state violence, legislation, policing, and identity politics. Contributors address topics that range from the ever-evolving role of divinized spirits in Haiti and the contemporary mortuary practice of Indo-Trinidadians to funerary ceremonies in rural Jamaica and ancestor cults in Maroon culture in Suriname. Questions of alterity, difference, and hierarchy underlie these discussions of how racial, cultural, and class differences have been deployed in ritual practice and how such rituals have been governed in the colonial and postcolonial Caribbean.

Summary:

The works of Friedrich Nietzsche have fascinated readers around the world ever since the publication of his first book more than a hundred years ago. As Walter Kaufmann, one of the world’s leading authorities on Nietzsche, notes in his introduction, “Few writers in any age were so full of ideas,” and few writers have been so consistently misinterpreted. The Portable Nietzsche includes Kaufmann’s definitive translations of the complete and unabridged texts of Nietzsche’s four major works: Twilight of the Idols, The Antichrist, Nietzsche Contra Wagner and Thus Spoke Zarathustra. In addition, Kaufmann brings together selections from his other books, notes, and letters, to give a full picture of Nietzsche’s development, versatility, and inexhaustibility. “In this volume, one may very conveniently have a rich review of one of the most sensitive, passionate, and misunderstood writers in Western, or any, literature.” —Newsweek

Summary:

Wren est morte après avoir reçu trois balles dans la poitrine. 178 minutes plus tard, elle est revenue à la vie, plus forte, plus rapide, plus résistante à la douleur et aux émotions. Elle est devenue une Reboot. Plus le temps de mort clinique est long, plus l’adolescent reboot est puissant et insensible. 120 minutes suffisent déjà à faire d’un adolescent normal un robot guerrier. Ce qui fait de Wren 178 l’arme la plus dévastatrice de la république du Texas.Aujourd’hui âgée de dix-sept ans, elle est l’un des meilleurs soldats de la SHER (Société Humaine d'Évolution et de Repopulation) et forme les nouvelles recrues d’une main de fer. Le dernier en date est loin de satisfaire ses exigences. Callum n’est qu’un 22, encore quasiment humain. Ses réflexes sont ceux d’un nouveau-né, il a peur de tout et semble destiné à faire sortir Wren de ses gonds. Sans trop savoir pourquoi, la jeune Reboot accepte pourtant de le prendre sous son aile. Si elle n’arrive pas à le former correctement, elle devra l’anéantir elle-même. Wren n’a jamais désobéi à un ordre, et, si elle le fait, elle subira le même sort que le jeune 22. Mais comment oublier cette incroyable sensation d’être toujours en vie, celle qui l’étreint quand elle est en compagnie de Callum ? Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Laurence Kiéfé

Summary:

At its pinnacle in A.D. 1150 the Anasazi empire of the Southwest would see no equal in North America for almost eight hundred years. Yet even at this cultural zenith, the Anasazi held the seeds of their own destruction deep within themselves.... On his deathbed, the Great Sun Chief learns a secret, a shame so vile to him that even at the brink of eternity he cannot let it pass: In a village far to the north is a fifteen-summers-old girl who must be found. Though he knows neither her name nor her face, the Great Sun decrees that the girl must at all costs be killed. Fleeing for her life as her village lies in ruins, young Cornsilk is befriended by Poor Singer, a curious youth seeking to touch the soul of the Katchinas. Together, they undertake the perilous task of staying alive long enough to discover her true identity. But time is running out for them all--a desperate killer stalks them, one who is willing to destroy the entire Anasazi world to get to her. New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors and award-winning archaeologists W. Michael Gear and Kathleen O'Neal Gear bring the stories of these first North Americans to life in People of the Silence and other volumes in the magnicent North America's Forgotten Past series.

Summary:

The magnificent Aztec empire has fallen beneath the brutal heal of the Spaniards. But one proud Aztec, Tenamaxtli, refuses to bow to his despised conquerors. He dreams of restoring the lost glory of the Aztec empire, and recruits an army of rebels to mount an insurrection against the seemingly invincible power of mighty Spain. Tenamaxtli's courageous quest takes us through high adventure, passionate women, unlikely allies, bright hope, bitter tragedy, and the essence of 16th century Mexico. This incredible rebellion has been little remembered, perhaps because it shed no glory on the men who would write the history book, but on its outcome depended the future of all North America. Aztec Autumn recreates this forgotten chapter of history in all its splendor and unforgettable passion.
