A General History and Collection of Voyages and Travels : Volume XVI (Illustrated) By Robert Kerr
eBook (ePub): $1.99
“The present work is the first of the kind that has ever been attempted in Scotland: and though, as already avowed in the Prospectus, the Editor has no wish to detract from the merits of... More > similar publications, it might appear an overstrained instance of false delicacy to decline a statement of the circumstances which, he presumes to hope, will give some prospect of the work being received with attention and indulgence, perhaps with favour. It certainly is the only General History and Collection of Voyages and Travels that has been hitherto attempted in the English language, upon any arrangement that merits the appellation of a systematic plan. And hence, should the plan adopted be found only comparatively good, in so far the system of arrangement must be pronounced the best that has been as yet devised. If this be conceded, and the fact is too obvious to require extended proof or minute elucidation, the Editor shall not feel mortified even if his arrangement may be considerably improved hereafter.”< Less

OTREC-RR-11-09 By Jennifer Tanner et al.
eBook (PDF): $0.00
The primary goal of this research project was to investigate the long-term durability of concrete incorporating recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) through accelerated laboratory testing. Overall it... More > was found that modifications to standard aggregate testing and characterization standards were necessary for testing RCA. This included modifications to standard tests including ASTM C 128, C 305 and C 1260. It was found that the potential for alkali silica reactivity did exist for new concrete containing RCA. The characteristics of the RCA also had a profound effect on ASR related expansion. RCA with a higher content of reactive coarse or fine aggregate (compared to paste fraction) exhibited greater reaction and would therefore require higher levels of mitigation. Based on testing in this research project precision and bias statements in ASTM C 1260 (for virgin aggregate) do not apply to RCA. Recommendations for future work are also included in this report.< Less

SPACE TO CREATE IN CHINESE SCIENCE FICTION. By Robert G. Price
Paperback: $19.54
Prints in 3-5 business days
This study of Chinese science fiction will be of interest to students, SF fans, and even to those with a mere passing fancy of science fiction in the Middle Kingdom. The book is split into three... More > main parts; firstly the development of Anglo-American and Chinese SF are compared - mainly for those who are new to the "genre." Next, the "unspoken" limiting guidelines for authors that no one can / will universally agree on are discussed. Also, historical case studies demonstrate why freedom to create is absolutely vital to the progressive developments of companies and even countries which also rings true for China’s role in the 21st century. Finally, a sampling of 12 short stories by three major authors over the last forty years are examined for content that agrees with statements made about SF in China by experts in SF studies as well as authors themselves. All this helps even a novice in the subject to gain important insights into what it means to be an SF author in China.< Less
The true Countenance of Johann Sebastian Bach. From the Visible to the Actual By Markus von Hänsel-Hohenhausen

The University of Dundee has produced a reconstruction of Bach’s face using forensic techniques. This essay compares the reconstruction with the authentic portrait of Bach painted in 1746, and... More > considers the value of both likenesses. Markus Hänsel-Hohenhausen not only arrives at an unequivocal conclusion, he also raises fundamental questions relating to image theory, considering the power of the image, that is, the objectivity that arises from a dual subjectivity, the rendering of real ‘presence’ by means of technically accurate representation, and the physicality (and noticeable absence of spirit) that results from the application of technical methods alone, e.g. in the case of Andy Warhol’s work. Beginning with reflections on the royal portrait, Christian ritual and Jesus Christ’s crown of thorns, the essay goes on to deliver a clear statement about the significance of both portraits of Bach,at the same time offering therein an answer to the question: does a person really have a true countenance?< Less

The Anti-Christ By Bernard Palfrey
eBook (ePub): $3.13
There is a simple test of two questions that will establish whether as professing Christians we are speaking the truth in the matter of love. The first question posed is: Who do we love most in this... More > world above any other? The second question to be posed is: Who do we love more, the person of the first question or God? If the answer is a statement of loving God more, there is a need for us to learn the lesson of this book that is a message of truth written to prepare God's people for the final conflict between Christ and Satan. There is not one church that is preaching the full truth as proclaimed in scripture. Jesus cannot return triumphant to a church in defeat. When compared to Bible truth, within Christendom, there are farcical contradictions being expressed in both teachings and actions that can only be defeated by "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith."< Less

Knowledge of the truth is a wise man’s cipher, for you shall know the truth and the truth will make you free. All the evidence points towards the facts, that had the truth been taught in the... More > schools of yesterday, there would have not been a need for the great statement to be recorded in literature named after the son of man Yeheshua, 'You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free'. The Asiatic (Blackmen) women and children have undergone everything that could have been imposed upon them, yet they retained their morals. You may compare the acts of the lamb’s wool hair woman of the US and abroad with the acts of the European blond woman of the US and abroad and thereby draw your own conclusion during the next 170 years of global economic and social revolution. Thousands of blond women and sons will resort to suicide while undergoing the 170 years of economic and social revolution.< Less
