  • Binding: Paperback Author: Thrysabulos Georgiades Language: English Publication Date: 1983-05-31 Number of Pages: 152 Publisher: Cambridge University
    Binding: Paperback Author: Thrysabulos Georgiades Language: English Publication Date: 1983-05-31 Number of Pages: 152 Publisher: Cambridge University Press In A Time Of Ever-Increasing Specialisation This Work Focuses On The Broader Aspects Of Western Music, Seeking To View Its History As A Whole And To Probe Its Relationship To Other Aspects Of Western Cultural Thought. Its Basic Point Of Departure Is The Author'S Concern With That Main Aspect Of Language Which Is Also Shared By Music, Namely Rhythm. As A Native Of Greece Georgiades Was Struck By The Fundamental Differences In Rhythmic Structure Between The Languages Of The Ancient World, Greek And Latin, On The One Hand And Those Of The Modern Western World On The Other And By The Resulting Differences In The Demands Thus Placed On Music. Here Is A Totally Unique Approach To The History Of Music, One Which Is Equally Far Removed Both From The Bare Factual Account And From The Broad Survey Or Integrated Arts View Of The Discipline. In Its Combination Of Close Attention To Detail With An Unwavering Awareness Of The Significance Of The Whole It Reveals Many New Relationships And Interdependencies Which Should Be Of Interest To All Those Concerned With The History Of Western Intellectual-Cultural Thought, Both In Music And In Other Disciplines.

  • Martial Maneuvers: Fighting Principles and Tactics of the Internal Martial Arts

  • Martial Maneuvers: Fighting Principles and Tactics of the Internal Martial Arts
    In "Martial Maneuvers, "Phillip Starr demonstrates that while the internal martial arts-Taijiquan, Bagua Zhang, and Xingyi Quan-might be considered ineffective for practical self-defense, they in fact have a long history of combat use. Starr argues that most teachers and practitioners of the internal arts have forgotten their rich martial heritage, focusing instead on their applicability for health or spiritual practices. Starr returns to the roots of the three major internal arts, demonstrating the combative principles upon which they were originally based. "Martial Maneuvers "often takes a lighthearted and humorous approach to what can often be challenging material, and provides training routines in easy-to-understand language. Numerous photos demonstrate the step-by-step implementation of fighting techniques, teaching readers how to apply them to their own chosen martial disciplines. While designed primarily for the internal martial artist, the techniques demonstrated in "Martial Maneuvers "can also benefit and enrich the training of a student of any discipline, including karate and kung fu.

  • Sacred Language, Ordinary People: Dilemmas of Culture and Politics in Egypt

  • Sacred Language, Ordinary People: Dilemmas of Culture and Politics in Egypt
    The cultures and politics of nations around the world may be understood (or misunderstood) in any number of ways. For the Arab world, language is the crucial link for a better understanding of both. Classical Arabic is the official language of all Arab states although it is not spoken as a mother tongue by any group of Arabs. As the language of the Qur'an, it is also considered to be sacred. For more than a century and a half, writers and institutions have been engaged in struggles to modernize Classical Arabic in order to render it into a language of contemporary life. What have been the achievements and failures of such attempts? Can Classical Arabic be sacred and contemporary at one and the same time? This book attempts to answer such questions through an interpretation of the role that language plays in shaping the relations between culture, politics, and religion in Egypt.
