            This book History of Adyghe Literature III is the continuation of the preceding volumes I and II. It describes and analyzes the superb literary works our Adyghe writers produced in the Soviet Union, despite the complex and harsh conditions of Party regulations, strict frameworks ...of conflict-free theory, and the constant insistence of Party leaders that writers should write only on the themes of the Revolution, collective farm, the Great Patriotic War, and great Party leaders. Regardless of all these rigid conditions, risking their own personal lives, Adyghe writers have succeeded to produce great literary works in all the literary genres, especially the great novel. These books present these great works in the form of literary criticism and book reviews. I am presenting them to English readers in their language, hoping they will find them very interesting and highly informative.

            Love and Money: A Literary History of Desires
             

            Love and Money: A Literary History of Desires (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            When people speak about love and money, they usually are referring to a conflict: love distorted by the desire for money. Such statements imply that love has a distinct form before economics interferes, but this book aims to show that such a view simplifies what is going on, beca...use people have always been deeply shaped by everything in the social order, including economics. So when people say that money is distorting love, what they are really saying is that the current relationship of love and economics is different from an earlier relationship. This book seeks then to demonstrate the intertwining of the discourses of love and money over a long history by focusing on moments when parallel conceptions appear in economic theories and love stories. The two discourses intersect because both seek to define qualities and behaviors of human beings which are most valuable and hence most desirable. Similar descriptions of valuable behaviors appear at roughly the same time in economic theories of how to acquire wealth and literary stories of how to find ideal lovers. By tracking mutual expressions of desire, value, and acquisition in economics and love stories, this book argues for the ubiquity of the intertwining of these discourses, while exploring shifts in conceptions of value. It focuses on four eras when economic and romantic conceptions of what is most desirable were actively changing in English discourses: the Early Modern 17th century, the Victorian 19th, the Modernist 20th, and the Postmodern present.

            Egisto Perrone e in pensione. Gia, ma chi ci crede? Per un segugio come lui, forte della sua quarantennale esperienza in Polizia, dismettere i panni dell'ispettore per vestire quelli del fungaiolo e dell'uomo in pantofole, non e esattamente nelle sue corde. Benche abbia giurato a... se stesso e a Caterina, sua moglie che non si sarebbe piu occupato di delitti, questa e la seconda volta che ci casca. Ecco che una innocente e spensierata gita sulla neve diventa occasione per ficacre in naso in un episodio tragico di ben tre secoli e mezzo prima. Ancora una volta il suo fiuto permettera di chiarire molti punti oscuri della brutta storia di Domenica Trameri, detta Ceriga, processata come strega, negli anni del Sacro Macello di Valtellina.

            From the frontline of social care as a foster carer in the UK, this diary-journal lays open the maelstrom of daily life under Covid-19 lockdown. Insightful, acerbic, playful and intimate, Rita Mann confidently gathers the vortex of political discourse in her fist and asks probing... questions as to where we all go from here. Thoroughly researched and with over 160 citations, the book presents a social commentary of a defining period in 21st century that is both vivid and deeply affecting. Every aspect of the lockdown is candidly portrayed - from daily news briefings to shocking headlines and death statistics, the promises of politicians, PPE shambles, challenges in social care and the minutiae of everyday life. Critical of the delays in lockdown, Rita Mann observes: One click of a button to view the crisp, live webcam at Piazza San Marco in Venice and witness the eerie emptiness would have reminded anyone of what needed to be done to stop people from crowding. And prevent Covid-19 from spreading. Rita Mann's concern for where we now find ourselves runs deep. Across the world, every country, every home has been forced to down tools and arguments in order to save lives. That is the most powerful common experience we have shared. That alone should make us different. We have changed. Grief and sorrow, love and joy have coalesced as we celebrate what we have now and what we might not have tomorrow. A book that quietly explodes with the tensions of the times.
