Download or read Obsidian Reflections PDF, written by David M. Carballo and published by University Press of Colorado. This book was released on 2014-05-15 with total page 423 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Departing from the political economy perspective taken by the vast majority of volumes devoted to Mesoamerican obsidian, Obsidian Reflections is an examination of obsidian's sociocultural dimensions—particularly in regard to Mesoamerican world view, religion, and belief systems. Exploring the materiality of this volcanic glass rather than only its functionality, this book considers the interplay among people, obsidian, and meaning and how these relationships shaped patterns of procurement, exchange, and use. An international group of scholars hailing from Belize, France, Japan, Mexico, and the United States provides a variety of case studies from Mexico, Guatemala, Belize, and Honduras. The authors draw on archaeological, iconographic, ethnographic, and ethnohistoric data to examine obsidian as a touchstone for cultural meaning, including references to sacrificial precepts, powerful deities, landscape, warfare, social relations, and fertility. Obsidian Reflections underscores the necessity of understanding obsidian from within its cultural context—the perspective of the indigenous people of Mesoamerica. It will be of great interest to Mesoamericanists as well as students and scholars of lithic studies and material culture.

Download or read Ordinarily Sarah PDF, written by Sarah Elizabeth Rose and published by LifeRich Publishing. This book was released on 2020-05-05 with total page 174 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ordinarily Sarah, Book II – Relentless has a prophetic word for the dark times our world is experiencing today. At its core, the book describes a real-life battle between good and evil as it presents itself in the life of one family. Evil is real. Evil destroys. Evil can take any form it believes will be effective. And evil can appear anywhere, at any time it chooses. Sometimes just beyond the next corner. Sometimes as soon as next month ..., or next week ..., or tomorrow! Sometimes as soon as the next moment. Evil can cause great harm to us – even death – if we are not prepared to enter into battle with it. This book raises these questions: How do we recognize evil, how can we prepare for battle against it, and how can we find God in the midst of it all.

Download or read Control and Freedom PDF, written by Wendy Hui Kyong Chun and published by MIT Press. This book was released on 2008-09-26 with total page 365 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A work that bridges media archaeology and visual culture studies argues that the Internet has emerged as a mass medium by linking control with freedom and democracy. How has the Internet, a medium that thrives on control, been accepted as a medium of freedom? Why is freedom increasingly indistinguishable from paranoid control? In Control and Freedom, Wendy Hui Kyong Chun explores the current political and technological coupling of freedom with control by tracing the emergence of the Internet as a mass medium. The parallel (and paranoid) myths of the Internet as total freedom/total control, she says, stem from our reduction of political problems into technological ones. Drawing on the theories of Gilles Deleuze and Michel Foucault and analyzing such phenomena as Webcams and face-recognition technology, Chun argues that the relationship between control and freedom in networked contact is experienced and negotiated through sexuality and race. She traces the desire for cyberspace to cyberpunk fiction and maps the transformation of public/private into open/closed. Analyzing "pornocracy," she contends that it was through cyberporn and the government's attempts to regulate it that the Internet became a marketplace of ideas and commodities. Chun describes the way Internet promoters conflated technological empowerment with racial empowerment and, through close examinations of William Gibson's Neuromancer and Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell, she analyzes the management of interactivity in narratives of cyberspace. The Internet's potential for democracy stems not from illusory promises of individual empowerment, Chun argues, but rather from the ways in which it exposes us to others (and to other machines) in ways we cannot control. Using fiber optic networks—light coursing through glass tubes—as metaphor and reality, Control and Freedom engages the rich philosophical tradition of light as a figure for knowledge, clarification, surveillance, and discipline, in order to argue that fiber-optic networks physically instantiate, and thus shatter, enlightenment.
