Описание

Серия книг «Зарубежная классика — читай в оригинале» — это бессмертные произведения великих мастеров пера, написанные ими на их родном языке и наречии. Книги из этой серии помогут читателю углубленно изучать иностранные языки, обогатят его внутренний мир и по-новому откроют произведения известных классиков.

Have you ever seen a passage in the New Testament that was placed in brackets, or a footnote at the bottom of a page referring to “ancient authorities” or “manuscripts”?Most people scratch their heads and just keep reading, but these notes are very important. So is understanding why they’re even there.

In this short introduction, Thomas W. Hudgins explains for the average reader the need for, criteria of, and some misconceptions associated with New Testament textual criticism.

Running is more than just a sport. It is also a magical way to get offline and recover some of the joy that modern life increasingly denies us.

In Footnotes, Vybarr Cregan-Reid sets out to discover why running means so much to so many. He embarks on a journey that takes him back to nature and across continents, through fascinating terrains and to the world’s most advanced running laboratories and research centres.

He discovers the horrifying history of treadmills, how running makes us more intelligent and even why our bodies look the way they do. Calling upon debates in literature, philosophy and biology to explore our simple desire to run, this book will inspire you to get off the sofa and head for the hills.

Footnotes have not had it easy. Their dominance of eighteenth- and nineteenth- century literature and scholarship was both hard-won -- following many years of struggle -- and doomed, as it led to belittlement in the twentieth century.

In The Devil #39;s Details, Chuck Zerby playfully explores footnotes #39; long and illustrious history and makes a clarion call to save them from the new world of the Internet and hypertext. In a story that boasts a marvelous plot and a rogues #39; gallery of players, Zerby examines traditional footnotes and their less-buttoned-down incarnations, as when used by pornographers.

Yes, The Devil #39;s Details is full of surprises: Zerby hunts down the first bona fide fully functioning footnote; unearths a multivolume history of Northumberland County, England, that uses one volume for a single footnote; and uncovers a murder plot. He even explains why footnotes are like blind dates.

Carefully researched and highly opinionated, The Devil #39;s Details affirms that delight in reading can come from unexpected places. In 1861 a courageous band of women brave death and defy political powers to render battlefield relief, launching the first MASH Unit on American soil.

By these deeds they write their page in history. This dramatic, fact-based story is told through the eyes of Havannah, a fiery but shallow debutante, who joins the first team of women to work the battlefields during the Civil War.

While blood flows and Minie balls fly, Havannah squares off with head field hospital nurse who vows to dismiss her from the corps. The heroine’s love affair with a crusty army surgeon adds fuel to the fire.

Meanwhile, sisters at home battle enemies who pledge to squash their efforts to establish the innovative relief plan. On the trail women, board wagons hauled by cantankerous mules, strap soup pots to wagons, forge mountain passes, dodge bullets, set up field hospitals alongside battlefields and scour the land, seeking life among the dead.

The weapons they carried were not muskets but hot soup, whispered prayers and compassion, bolstered by fierce determination. The first biography about Bertram Fletcher Robinson, who acted as #39;assistant plot producer #39; to Arthur Conan Doyle over the Sherlock Holmes story The Hound of the Baskervilles (1901/02).
