Deliver Us From The Evil One

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

In these pages Bernardo Olivera helps us to discern and recognize how the devil can act in our life and what kind of influence he can have. What is the relationship between Satan and the spiritual combat implied in our own journey to union with God? This book brings together the advice of the principal spiritual masters who have treated the subject with the realism that comes from their own experience of the devil's worst temptations, such as the laziness, bitterness and indifference that comes from the vice of acedia. The call is not to fight Satan directly, but to persevere in the humility and patience of Christ.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This magical adventure from the #1 digital comic platform WEBTOON continues as Dani and Dorian answer the question they've been avoiding: could one of them be the king of witches? A classic good-vs-evil struggle plays out on an epic stage in the second volume of this bestselling comic. Dani and Dorian Wytte have been through everything together--including joining forces with trouble maker Nico, Princess Monica, and golden boy Mark to sneak into the witch's sabbath, spring hostages from prison, and defend the castle when it was attacked by witches. With witches like their parents out for power and blood and non-magical people increasingly threatened by them, Dani and Dorian don't know whose side they're on . . .or if anyone's on their side. That includes their brother, Damien, who disappeared after being crowned King of Witches. But since Monica's father, the king, and her fiancé, Prince William disappeared, too, Dani and Dorian know they must set out to find their lost allies. Luckily, they aren't alone. Based on the beloved webcomic from WEBTOON, Hooky Volume 2 picks up right where the action left off and is in stunning print format for the first time with exclusive new content sure to please fans new and old.

Slave Portraiture In The Atlantic World

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

Slave Portraiture in the Atlantic World is the first book to focus on the individualized portrayal of enslaved people from the time of Europe's full engagement with plantation slavery in the late sixteenth century to its final official abolition in Brazil in 1888. While this period saw the emergence of portraiture as a major field of representation in Western art, 'slave' and 'portraiture' as categories appear to be mutually exclusive. On the one hand, the logic of chattel slavery sought to render the slave's body as an instrument for production, as the site of a non-subject. Portraiture, on the contrary, privileged the face as the primary visual matrix for the representation of a distinct individuality. Essays address this apparent paradox of 'slave portraits' from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives, probing the historical conditions that made the creation of such rare and enigmatic objects possible and exploring their implications for a more complex understanding of power relations under slavery.

Indigenous Networks At The Margins Of Development

eBook Download

BOOK EXCERPT:

This work is based on research and advocacy with the people of two multiethnic indigenous resguardos located at the outskirts of the Colombian towns of Leticia and Puerto Nariño. Through an analysis of the relationship between development institutions and indigenous people, the book examines the dynamics of social praxis in contexts where development is debated, enforced, and subverted, and it does so in a dialogue with the critical perspective of post-development, and the critiques woven by indigenous people on the basis of their experiences, world-views, and embodied perceptions of well-being. In spite of being the postulate of development “the improvement of the people’s quality of life,”indigenous people express the feeling that their life quality has become worse as development projects proceed, and they see themselves as both physically and spiritually ill. While they become increasingly involved in the development apparatus, they strive to resist the implicit beliefs of development as well as its practical workings. In a situation of crisis, which pervades, as a virus, the human, social, and cosmic bodies, indigenous people endeavor to cure the pathogenic energy of development through the strengthening of cultural meanings and the weaving of intercultural alliances. For the supra-ethnic ensemble known as People of the Center, this twofold process is articulated through the ritual consumption of coca and tobacco. This work asks why this philosophical and ritual system is able to resonate in an indigenous multicultural context, and how it generates schemas for political agency that intertwine in a powerful way healing, dissent, and the consolidation of intercultural networks
