Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Sunday Times bestseller A stunning science fiction debut, The Space Between Worlds is both a cross-dimensional adventure and a powerful examination of identity, privilege, and belonging. 'My mother used to say I was born reaching, which is true. She also used to say it would get me killed, which it hasn't. Not yet, anyway.' Born in the dirt of the wasteland, Cara has fought her entire life just to survive. Now she has done the impossible, and landed herself a comfortable life on the lower levels of the wealthy and walled-off Wiley City. So long as she can keep her head down and avoid trouble, she's on a sure path to citizenship and security - on this world, at least. Of the 380 realities that have been unlocked, Cara is dead in all but 8. Cara's parallel selves are exceptionally good at dying - from disease, turf wars, or vendettas they couldn't outrun - which makes Cara wary, and valuable. Because while multiverse travel is possible, no one can visit a world in which their counterpart is still alive. And no one has fewer counterparts than Cara. But then one of her eight doppelgängers dies under mysterious circumstances, and Cara is plunged into a new world with an old secret. What she discovers will connect her past and future in ways she never could have imagined - and reveal her own role in a plot that endangers not just her earth, but the entire multiverse.

Download or read book Women's Liberation and the Sublime written by Marilyn Friedman and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2006-10-19 with total page 196 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The notion of citizenship is complex; it can be at once an identity; a set of rights, privileges, and responsibilities; an elevated and exclusionary status, a relationship between individual and state, and more. In recent decades citizenship has attracted interdisciplinary attention, particularly with the transnational growth of Western capitalism. Yet citizenship's relationship to gender has gone relatively unexplored--despite the globally pervasive denial of citizenship to women, historically and in many places, ongoing today. This highly interdisciplinary volume explores the political and cultural dimensions of citizenship and their relevance to women and gender. Containing essays by a well-known group of scholars, including Iris Marion Young, Alison Jaggar, Martha Nussbaum, and Sandra Bartky, this book examines the conceptual issues and strategies at play in the feminist quest to give women full citizenship status. The contributors take a fresh look at the issues, going beyond conventional critiques, and examine problems in the political and social arrangements, practices, and conditions that diminish women's citizenship in various parts of the world.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Have you ever felt uncomfortable in your own skin? Maybe there's a reason... Jeremiah Pym is a private detective – not the flashy gun-toting gumshoe of old, but a quiet, respectable shamus of modern day who earns a modest living on domestic intrigues and background checks. After being hired for what should be a routine surveillance job, Jeremiah witnesses a kidnapping, barely escaping with his life. The next day, however, not a trace remains of any kidnapping... or anything else that he saw. Trying to put the puzzle pieces together leads the detective on a convoluted chase that brings into question everything that he's ever known about himself. With the help of his Native American mentor, Edgard Moon Bear, Jeremiah discovers that the key to the mystery may be found in another world – a world where therianthropes (human/animal hybrids) are the sentient beings, and where hundreds of years of slow change has allowed some of these beings to wield magical powers. As Jeremiah learns the secrets of his own past, he comes to learn who and what he is... and why his existence is central to the continued survival of two worlds.

Download or read book Space Between Words written by Paul Saenger and published by Stanford University Press. This book was released on 1997 with total page 506 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Silent reading is now universally accepted as normal; indeed reading aloud to oneself may be interpreted as showing a lack of ability or understanding. Yet reading aloud was usual, indeed unavoidable, throughout antiquity and most of the middle ages. Saenger investigates the origins of the gradual separation of words within a continuous written text and the consequent development of silent reading. He then explores the spread of these practices throughout western Europe, and the eventual domination of silent reading in the late medieval period. A detailed work with substantial notes and appendices for reference.

But upon arriving in the tiny village, Simon finds not just a monster but a key to his past—and a pathway into an unbelievable future.
