Universal Man, Abd-al-Karim al-Jili
43 Abd-al-Karim al-Jili Universal Man
UK Beshara Publications 1995 0904975150 / 9780904975154 Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
75 pages. Abd al-Karim al-Jili, or Abdul Karim Jili was a Muslim sufi saint and mystic who was born in 1366 at Jil in Baghdad. He is famous in Muslim mysticism as the author of this book - "Universal Man". He travelled in India; lived for a time in Yemen, and died in 1403, at the age of 38. He produced more than twenty books. of which Universal Man (al-insan al-kamil) is the most celebrated. His teaching follows that of Muhyiddin ibn 'Arabi (‘the Greatest Sheikh'), of which it can be regarded as a systematic exposition. Universal Man is Man the Macrocosm, the complete image and manifested consciousness of God, exempli?ed and expressed in the lives of saintly individuals. ]ili's account therefore takes the form of a series of chapters on the appearances of Absolute Reality as Essence, Names, Qualities and Divinity. These appearances correspond to contemplative states encountered by the mystic on the path of Union, which are discussed more particularly in the later chapters. Jili's exposition is incisive and illuminating; his intention entirely practical. He writes: ‘I will mention of all that only that which happened to me on my own journey to God; moreover I recount nothing in this book, neither of myself nor of another, without my having tested it at the time when I travelled in God by the path of intuition and direct vision’. Titus Burckhardt has provided an extensive and helpful introduction to Jili's work, and commentary on the text.

Germany Books on Demand 2010 3839184754 / 9783839184752 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
175 pages. A lot of things have happened during the past few years. New media have become far more than just toys for nerds; they now have an impact on everybody's life to a greater extent than ever before - from the cell phone in your pocket and industries fighting to survive down to your old high-school friend you block on Facebook to prevent him from bothering you every time you're online. We're currently experiencing a time of change - a change during which a whole generation is evolving; this generation is growing up with an entirely new media behavior. It can't imagine a world without new media. Now, also, the marketing industry must adapt, since you can hardly reach this generation using means and methods from the past. This book helps traditional advertising and marketing people master the step into the digital era, providing tools to create campaigns that reach the people of today. It was not written by a CMO giving expensive seminars and presenting big theories with no solutions, but by a creative team dealing with and living the changes in media every day. The team, Innovative Thunder, specializes in innovative marketing and has gathered experience by working with three of the world's leading marketing agencies - Jung von Matt, Crispin Porter + Bogusky, as well as currently, R/GA, New York.

133 pages including b/w photos. Originally published under the title "Vom Ostseestrand in Fernes Land", this text was translated by the author with assistance of Tim Acker. Author's note: "This is not an absolutely exact translation of the original published in Germany. The publishers deleted a number of paragraphs, from the original manuscript some of which, I felt, should stay. I have, of course, adhered to thesequence of events, but occasionally added an explanatory word or sentence, at other times deleted this or that. All of this does in no way affect the overall story. The other difference between this and the original version is that in this translated version I have used actual names throughout, in the original version all family names were changed for privacy reasons, although most first names were not. Also, this translated version includes a few additional photos. Contents: This is how it all began - to 1939; Childhood by the sea - 1939-1945; Journey into the unknown - 1945-1946; Difficult beginnings - 1946-1950; The end of childhood - 1950-56; A voyage to America; What shall I do with the rest of my life? - 1956-1959; To the far end of the earth - 1959-1962; Christmas on the beach - 1962.

Sport in Australian History (Australian Retrospectives), Adair, Daryl; Vamplew, Wray
49 Adair, Daryl; Vamplew, Wray Sport in Australian History (Australian Retrospectives)
Australia Oxford University Press 1998 0195535901 / 9780195535907 Reprint Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
169 indexed pages. Australians are often said to be obsessed with sport, and playing and watching sport have long been regarded as national pastimes. Sport in Australian History is an innovative and exciting study of the political, economic, social, and cultural role that sport has played in Australia since European settlement. The authors investigate many of the myths surrounding the place of sport in Australian culture. They demonstrate that, although Australians are far from unique in their fascination with sport, a historical study of their involvement - both as participants and spectators - can nevertheless tell us a great deal about Australian society. Indeed, in many respects, sport can be viewed as a microcosm of wider society, reflecting, for example, attitudes to violence and gender relations. Taking a thematic approach, the authors dwell on the values, ideas, and myths that have shaped the nations sporting culture over time. The book focuses on issues such as the sports industry; the place of women; the participation of groups not traditionally involved in mainstream Australian sport (such as Aborigines, the disabled, ethnic groups, and the aged); the influence of science and technology; and controversial topics such as violence, drugs, corruption, the law, and the role of childrens sport. Readers interested in sport, culture, recreation, and history will find much to enjoy in this challenging and thought-provoking book. Contents: Part 1: Sporting belief,historical record. Part 2: The sports industry. Part 3: Political football. Part 4: Sporting women. Part 5: Groups on the margins - minority experiences in sport. Part 6: Stretching the limits - sports performance. Part 7: Not "playing the game" - problems in sport. Part 8: State of play; major readings.

U.S.A. Taylor & Francis 1987 1850002258 / 9781850002253 1st Edition Hard Cover Good 12mo 
159 indexed pages. Academic underachievement has long been of interest to teachers and educationalists, as have been the forms of ‘resistance’ employed by disaffected young people in schools and colleges. This book presents findings from a three - year ethnographic study of a group of ‘underachieving’ students in an English college of further education. It identifies patterns of cultural affirmation and ‘resistance’ amongst young people from new middle class backgrounds, and examines the relationship between these and the students’ home and out-of-college lives. The study also examines the consequences of new middle class youth cultural styles for the reproduction of class and gender relations, and raises questions about the radical significance, or otherwise, of middle class ‘resistance’ to schooling. Pictured is the title page of the book.
