📒The Quartet Of Causeries ✍ Śyāmilaka
📝The Quartet of Causeries Book Synopsis : "Now an ambitious new publishing project, the Clay Sanskrit Library brings together leading Sanskrit translators and scholars of Indology from around the world to celebrate in translating the beauty and range of classical Sanskrit literature. . . . Published as smart green hardbacks that are small enough to fit into a jeans pocket, the volumes are meant to satisfy both the scholar and the lay reader. Each volume has a transliteration of the original Sanskrit text on the left-hand page and an English translation on the right, as also a helpful introduction and notes. Alongside definitive translations of the great Indian epics -- 30 or so volumes will be devoted to the Maha·bhárat itself -- Clay Sanskrit Library makes available to the English-speaking reader many other delights: The earthy verse of Bhartri·hari, the pungent satire of Jayánta Bhatta and the roving narratives of Dandin, among others. All these writers belong properly not just to Indian literature, but to world literature." --LiveMint"The Clay Sanskrit Library has recently set out to change the scene by making available well-translated dual-language (English and Sanskrit) editions of popular Sanskritic texts for the public." --NamarupaThe Quartet of Causeries have been handed down as a collection of the most ancient monologue farces in classical Sanskrit. Though stylistically divergent, they share a common plot: the hero is an inept, bungling procurer, who mismanages his client's love-affairs to an unexpectedly successful completion. A wide spectrum of India's urban society is scandalized, from respected judges to clumsy poetasters, from hypocritical Buddhist monks to greedy madams, from spoiled scions of wealthy houses to criminal low-life.Co-published by New York University Press and the JJC Foundation
📒The Quartet ✍ Joseph J. Ellis
📝The Quartet Book Synopsis : From Pulitzer Prize–winning American historian Joseph J. Ellis, the unexpected story of why the thirteen colonies, having just fought off the imposition of a distant centralized governing power, would decide to subordinate themselves anew. We all know the famous opening phrase of Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address: “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this Continent a new Nation.” The truth is different. In 1776, thirteen American colonies declared themselves independent states that only temporarily joined forces in order to defeat the British. Once victorious, they planned to go their separate ways. The triumph of the American Revolution was neither an ideological nor a political guarantee that the colonies would relinquish their independence and accept the creation of a federal government with power over their autonomy as states. The Quartet is the story of this second American founding and of the men most responsible—George Washington, Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison. These men, with the help of Robert Morris and Gouverneur Morris, shaped the contours of American history by diagnosing the systemic dysfunctions created by the Articles of Confederation, manipulating the political process to force the calling of the Constitutional Convention, conspiring to set the agenda in Philadelphia, orchestrating the debate in the state ratifying conventions, and, finally, drafting the Bill of Rights to assure state compliance with the constitutional settlement. Ellis has given us a gripping and dramatic portrait of one of the most crucial and misconstrued periods in American history: the years between the end of the Revolution and the formation of the federal government. The Quartet unmasks a myth, and in its place presents an even more compelling truth—one that lies at the heart of understanding the creation of the United States of America. From the Hardcover edition.

📒 ✍ Лоис Лоури
📝 Book Synopsis : «Дающий» – одно из самых заметных явлений в области детской литературы второй половины 20-го века, первый роман-антиутопия, написанный специально для подростков. В августе 2014 года на мировые экраны выходит фильм, снятый по мотивам книги. В ролях – Мерил Стрип и Джефф Бриджес. А в "Розовом жирафе" выходит новый тираж "Дающего" в новой обложке, а следом за ним – остальные части знаменитой тетралогии Лоис Лоури.Вот что пишет про эту книгу сама Лоис Лоури: «Я сделала так, чтобы уютный и безопасный мир Джонаса понравился читателю. Я выбросила из него всё, что не любила сама: насилие, бедность, предрассудки и несправедливость. Все мои персонажи вежливы и обходительны – ведь мне так нравятся эти качества в людях. Прекрасный мир! В этом мире даже не нужно мыть за собой посуду. Ах, как бы мне хотелось остановиться на этом!» Но идеальный мир невозможно построить в реальности, поэтому перед главным героем, обычным подростком, писательница поставила выбор: остаться в этом идеальном мире или отказаться от него, чтобы спасти себя и того, кого он, вопреки запретам, успел полюбить.В отличие от взрослых антиутопий Джорджа Оруэлла, Евгения Замятина или от подростковой «Зимней битвы» Жан-Клода Мурлевы, в «Дающем» нет внешней борьбы и насилия. Все открытия и вся борьба происходят во внутреннем мире Джонаса. Тем не менее, сюжет книги, с его неожиданными поворотами и беспощадными деталями, держит читателя в напряжении и ломает привычные стереотипы.Сразу после выхода в 1993 году роман вызвал огромное количество споров. «Дающий» даже попал в список книг, которые группы родителей пытались запретить: они считали, что с юными читателями нельзя говорить на такие серьезные темы. Но, несмотря на критику, книга вошла в школьную программу средних классов американской школы, получила множество престижных наград, включая медаль Ньюбери Американской библиотечной ассоциации. Ее суммарный тираж составил к настоящему моменту 5,5 миллионов экземпляров.
📒The Quartet ✍ François Emmanuel
📝The Quartet Book Synopsis : Who is Just? What is pursuing him? What has this to do with the nature of music - and terrible revelations about a German company in France, and its links with the machinery of the Nazi death camps? The novel which has taken Paris by storm, THE QUARTET has the structure of a thriller, following a company psychologist's investigation of his director, Matthias Just, in the aftermath of the Second World War. In clear, beautiful prose, it tells of the collapse of Just, his dissolution of the company's string quartet, and the revelation of papers in his desk at home containing instructions for the construction of faultless vehicles for the extermination of humans, upon which musical notations are overlaid. What does this tell us about the nature of humanity - and what value can art ever have again?

📒The Israeli Palestinian Conflict And The Politics Of The Quartet ✍ Lee Daniel Schrader
📝The Israeli Palestinian Conflict and the Politics of the Quartet Book Synopsis : The 'Quartet' is an informal diplomatic mechanism designed to coordinate the efforts of major actors within the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Formed in 2001, the grouping is composed of representatives from the United States, the European Union, Russia and the Office of the UN Secretary General. Existing analysis of the Quartet, especially concerning the capacity of the grouping to facilitate both individual and collective outcomes for its members, is in some respects misleading. This thesis establishes the historical precedents to the formation of the Quartet, and examines the outputs and outcomes of the grouping within the politico-strategic context of the Middle East peace process from 2001-2011. It presents each of the Quartet members as actors, who, while working in support of a peace process between the Israelis and Palestinians, also hoped to advance their national or organisational objectives through the association itself. By examining the interplay between the complimentary and competing agendas and capabilities of the Quartet members, the thesis aims to provide enhanced insight into the role of external parties in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. Accordingly, it examines the key factors that motivated individual governments and institutions to form the Quartet, and analyses the extent to which the Quartet members had both collective and individual objectives for the grouping. In examining whether these objectives were achieved during the period, the thesis argues that the outcomes of the Quartet were shaped by its internal decision-making processes, the exclusivity of the US-Israel relationship, the nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the regional contexts in which its members sought collective influence. It argues that the Quartet demonstrated potential as a diplomatic tool, although in practice it had greater utility as a forum for coordination among its members than for influencing the behaviour of the parties to the conflict.

📒Beethoven For A Later Age ✍ Edward Dusinberre
📝Beethoven for a Later Age Book Synopsis : 'They are not for you but for a later age!' Ludwig van Beethoven, on the Opus 59 quartets. Tackling the Beethoven quartets is a rite of passage that has shaped the Takács Quartet's work together for over forty years. Using the history of the composition and first performances of the quartets as the backbone to his story, Edward Dusinberre, first violinist of the Takács since 1993 - recounts the life of the Quartet from its inception in Hungary, through emigration to the US and its present-day life as one of the world's renowned string quartets. He also describes what it was like for him, as a young man fresh out of the Juilliard School, to join the Quartet as its first non-Hungarian member - an exhilarating challenge. Beethoven for a Later Age takes the reader inside the life of a quartet, vividly showing how four people enjoy making music together over a long period of time. The key, the author argues, is in balancing continuity with change and experimentation - a theme that also lies at the heart of Beethoven's remarkable compositions.

📒The Beethoven Quartet Companion ✍ Robert Winter
📝The Beethoven Quartet Companion Book Synopsis : "Reading "The Beethoven Quartet Companion" made me want to listen to the quartets again from a new sociological as well as musical perspective. It is an invaluable guide not only for professional and amateur musicians but also for anyone who is curious about culture and wants to find out more."--Yo-Yo Ma "These essays are the most readable, useful, and well-informed commentary available today on these masterworks. Michael Steinberg's 'program notes' to each quartet, directed at once to the musical beginner and to the expert, are as eloquent and persuasive as popular writing about music can get. . . . His essays are followed by equally expert and accessible contributions by other masters on The Master, providing literate music lovers with the context and equipment for a richer enjoyment and clearer understanding of these sixteen unique conversations among two violins, a viola, and a cello."--David Littlejohn, author of "The Ultimate Art: Essays Around and About Opera" "A fine collection of essays to assist the music lover in the seemingly endless quest to illuminate the Beethoven string quartets."--Arnold Steinhardt, The Guarneri String Quartet "This book delivers on the implied promise of its title--it provides a lively, readable, and wide-ranging introduction to the quartets. Readers at many levels of experience will find it profitable."--Lewis Lockwood, author of "Beethoven: Studies in the Creative Process"

📒Shostakovich String Quartet ✍ David J. Fanning
📝Shostakovich String Quartet Book Synopsis : When it was first performed in October 1960, Shostakovich's Eighth String Quartet was greeted with a standing ovation and given a full encore. Its popularity has continued to the present day with over a hundred commercial recordings appearing during the last 40 years. The appeal of the work is not hard to identify; immediately communicative, the quartet is also made up of rich seams of deeper meaning. This book is the first to examine its musical design in detail and it seeks to overthrow the charges of superficiality that have arisen as a result of the work's success. The core of this study is the close analysis of the work, but this is placed in context with a discussion of Shostakovich's reputation and historical position, the circumstances of the quartet's composition and the subsequent controversies that have surrounded it. The work was composed during the so-called 'Thaw' years of the Soviet Union and the cultural and political backgrounds of this period are considered, together with an assessment of Shostakovich's life and work during this time. David Fanning argues persuasively that the Eighth String Quartet is a landmark in twentieth-century music in its transcendence of the extra-musical meanings that it invokes; that it is 'music that liberates itself from the shackles of its context'. The book features an accompanying CD of the work.
