A United States Ambassador and a former KGB Colonel are found murdered in a section of the Paris catacombs known as the Empire de Morte. (The Empire of the Dead.)

The Empire of the Dead

Original Synopsis

"The Empire of the Dead has a total of 272 pages which are papers from writer 'Tracy Daugherty'. In the spare and deliberate stories in The Empire of the Dead, through situations both comic and bluntly melancholy, the future remains open for people—but at an indeterminate cost. Daily, characters weigh their indecision against the consequences of choice. Through a series of five linked stories, we meet Bern, a New York City architect yearning for a return to "first principles"—the "initial euphoria, the falling-in-love" that led him to consider a life devoted to sheltering others. In his ministrations to colleagues and friends, his memories of magical building feats now in the past, he learns the limits and the expansiveness of joy and need. In another tale, we meet a young painter in a Gulf Coast refinery town struggling to differentiate beauty from affliction. His sister’s encounter with the singer Janis Joplin causes him to reconsider the nature of saintliness. And in the novella "The Magnitudes," a planetarium director, grieving over the unexpected loss of his parents, must learn how much of the universe—both the real sky beyond his reach and the firmament cast upon the planetarium dome—he can control. Like the other characters in Tracy Daugherty’s masterful collection, he moves through spaces at once sacred and spoiled, within cities, deserts, and other strange environments, reckoning, taking soundings, trying to find firm footing in the world. -- Greg Johnson 2014-11-18 time of publication of the book, [-JHU Press-]"

Joyce, Race, and Empire

Original Synopsis

"Joyce, Race, and Empire has a total of 329 pages which are papers from writer 'Vincent J. Cheng'. In this first full-length study of race and colonialism in the works of James Joyce, Vincent J. Cheng argues that Joyce wrote insistently from the perspective of a colonial subject of an oppressive empire, and demonstrates how Joyce's texts constitute a significant political commentary on British imperialism in Ireland and on colonial discourses and ideologies in general. This is a groundbreaking study of the century's most internationally influential fiction writer, and of his powerful representations of the cultural dynamics of race, power, and empire. 1995-05-25 time of publication of the book, [-Cambridge University Press-]"

At the Top of the Empire

Original Synopsis

"At the Top of the Empire has a total of 326 pages which are papers from writer 'Claire Laux, François-Joseph Ruggiu, Pierre Singaravélou'. A partir du XVIe siecle, les colonisations europeennes constituent non seulement un des principaux vecteurs de la mondialisation economique et culturelle mais aussi l'instrument d'une profonde reconfiguration sociale. Ainsi emergent des societes coloniales au sommet desquelles s'affirment des elites distinctes a la fois de celles du vieux continent dont elles sont originaires et de celles des mondes americains, asiatiques, africains ou oceaniens qu'elles supplantent, remplacent ou dedoublent. Les elites europeennes apparaissent comme une des pierres angulaires du systeme colonial. A travers une etude comparee des empires sur la longue duree, cet ouvrage analyse l'origine, la formation et la mobilite des elites, leur mode de vie et leurs liens avec les metropoles et les societes autochtones. Les contributions d'historiens allemands, anglais, belges, canadiens, etats-uniens, hollandais, italiens, portugais, russes et francais permettent de repenser la question de la domination coloniale au travers du prisme original de l'histoire sociale. Cet ouvrage restitue aussi la diversite des elites (colons, noblesses, creoles, administrateurs, militaires, etc.) et des situations coloniales modernes et contemporaines. From the 16th century, European colonization paved the way for economic and cultural globalization and for a deep social reconfiguration. As a result, at the top of the colonial societies new elites emerged that were different from those of the old continent and the indigenous elites. European elites seem to be one of the cornerstones of the colonial system. This book highlights the diversity of elites (settlers, nobilities, Creoles, civil servants, officers, etc.) and the variety of colonial situations from the 16th century to the 20th century. Neglected for a long time, the history of imperial societies gives a new slant to colonial studies. A long-term and comparative study of empires sheds light on the origins, education and mobility of elites, their way of life and relationships with metropolitan and indigenous societies. Contributions from American, Belgian, British, Canadian, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and Russian historians allow us to rethink the issue of colonial domination through the prism of social history." 2009 time of publication of the book, [-Peter Lang-]"

The Empire of the Dead

Original Synopsis

"The Empire of the Dead has a total of 149 pages which are papers from writer 'Andrew Prescott Keating'. This dissertation concerns the politics, aesthetics, and meanings of the British dead around the world. It argues that caring for the dead articulated views of the British Empire and Britain's standing in the world as well as how the British people understood their nation and their own identities within and outside of national communities. Broadly speaking this history tells a story of the state's increasing involvement in one of the most deeply personal, and traditionally familial, activities; but it is also an account of how the living came to define themselves through the care of the dead. Initially, in the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries, this took the form of establishing specifically British spaces for civilians who died away from home. Sometimes these distinct burial grounds came about as a way to deal with the problem of confessional difference and became distinctly Protestant while in other cases they reflected the desires of British merchants to fashion themselves as permanent imperial rulers. During the nineteenth century, the state took an increasingly active role in the establishment and operation of these spaces through the professionalization of the Consular Service and the cemeteries themselves became a synecdoche for British liberalism. Somewhat unexpectedly, considering the vast historiography on modern war commemoration and nationalism, the British government spent money and attention on caring for civilians who died overseas chronologically earlier than it concerned itself with dead soldiers. Nevertheless, during the period between the Napoleonic Wars and the Great War the idea that those who fell in battle deserved decent burial gained widespread resonance. The Crimean War of 1853-6 marked a turning point when for the first time most British soldiers received marked graves through the individual efforts of their comrades and manifesting a religiously inspired humanization of common soldiers. These burial grounds only became understood as "national cemeteries" and the government's responsibility after the war following widespread reports of their desecration and neglect. The British public increasingly understood providing Christian burial and marking soldiers graves, even if they died far from home, as a moral imperative for the army, the government, and civil society. During the Great War with the establishment in 1917 of a permanent commemoration bureaucracy, the Imperial War Graves Commission, caring for dead soldiers became infused with the political ideology of empire. The global network of sacred spaces created by the Commission following both world wars manifest not only a desire to care for the dead but also a way of using them to represent a united and victorious imperial polity. This commemoration style itself became untenable during decolonization as the British Empire itself disintegrated. The dead took on new meanings for the living in the late twentieth century even as those of the past as well as the spaces for them remained associated with empire and nation. 2011 time of publication of the book, [--]"

Unveiling the Messiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls

Original Synopsis

"Unveiling the Messiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls has a total of 520 pages which are papers from writer 'Margaret S. King'. The author is convinced that the early Byzantine Church deliberately cut out sections from an historic text to conceal the truth about the crucifixion of a man they were promoting as their Messiah. She solves the mystery by reconstructing the deleted sections. King pieces together what happened in Jerusalem during the trial and attempted crucifixion of the real Messiah and shows that the key passages that were tampered with are actually the missing link that connects the Dead Sea Scrolls to the New Testament Gospels. Using those passags and the history of the period, she identifies the figures mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls. 2012-01-20 time of publication of the book, [-Xlibris Corporation-]"

In the Empire of Shadow

Original Synopsis

"In the Empire of Shadow has a total of 264 pages which are papers from writer 'Lawrence Watt-Evans'. A handful of ordinary Americans -- housewives, lawyers, interior decorators, and the like -- found themselves caught up in a transdimensional conflict, and transported from their homes to realms where magic worked, to desert planets and rebel worlds, to places straight out of science fiction and fantasy. But these were not the harmless, happy-ending lands of film and fable. The sweat and blood was real, and the horrors they faced genuinely dangerous. One world was a world of magic, ruled by a dark force called Shadow. A handful of would-be heroes resisted Shadow's dominion, and sought assistance in their desperate struggle to free their homeland. The other reality was a universe of spaceships and rayguns, dominated by a Galactic Empire that saw Shadow as a threat -- and that demanded the exiles from our world aid them in their campaign. Against their will, these few people were flung into battle . . . IN THE EMPIRE OF SHADOW "In Worlds of Shadow, Lawrence Watt-Evans tells an exciting tale with memorable characters and relentless action. A must-read for fans of dark fantasy and horror." -- Karen E.

The Paths of the Dead

Original Synopsis

"The Paths of the Dead has a total of 400 pages which are papers from writer 'Steven Brust'. The long-awaited sequel to The Phoenix Guards and Five Hundred Years After Two hundred years after Adron's Disaster, in which Dragaera City was accidentally reduced to an ocean of chaos by an experiment in wizardry gone wrong, the Empire isn't what it used to be. Deprived at a single blow of their Emperor, of the Orb that is the focus of the Empire's power, of their capital city with its Impe-rial bureaucracy, and of a great many of their late fellow citizens, the surviving Dragaerans have been limping through a long Interregnum, bereft even of the simple magic and sorcery they were accustomed to use in everyday life. Now the descendants and successors of the great ad-venturers Khaavren, Pel, Aerich, and Tazendra are growing up in this seemingly diminished world, con-vinced, like their elders, that the age of adventures is over and nothing interesting will ever happen to them. They are, of course, wrong . . . . For even deprived of magic, Dragaerans fight, plot, and conspire as they breathe, and so do their still-powerful gods. The enemies of the Empire prowl at its edges, in-scrutable doings are up at Dzur Mountain...and, unex-pectedly, a surviving Phoenix Heir, young Zerika, is discovered—setting off a chain of swashbuckling events that will remake the world yet again.
