Probably the most popular book in the history of the Far East, this classic sixteenth century novel is a combination of picaresque novel and folk epic that mixes satire, allegory, and history into a rollicking adventure. It is the story of the roguish Monkey and his encounters with major and minor spirits, gods, demigods, demons, ogres, monsters, and fairies. This translation, by the distinguished scholar Arthur Waley, is the first accurate English version; it makes available to the Western reader a faithful reproduction of the spirit and meaning of the original.

An epic war story of two American soldiers trapped in a web of corruption and death during Vietnam's shattering Tet Offensive. In stunning scenes of combat and intrigue, Payne and Willingham are forced into a covert CIA operation that hurls them into Vietnam's true heart of darkness where body-count politics defines the essence of America's dirty little war and shifting loyalties, more than grenades and AK-47fire, decide who lives and who dies. Year of the Monkey takes us to a place we have not seen before in a war we only thought we knew.

Unterschwellig herrschen immer noch Konflikte zwischen den großen Sternenreichen, aber man arbeitet zusammen. Das gilt nicht nur für die von Menschen bewohnten Planeten und Monde.

Gegenwärtig hält sich Rhodan in deren Goldenem Reich auf. All das scheint im Zusammenhang mit der Superintelligenz ES zu stehen, die gezwungen war, ihre Mächtigkeitsballung – und damit auch die Milchstraße – zu verlassen.

Daniel Smith’s Monkey Mind is the stunning articulation of what it is like to live with anxiety. As he travels through anxiety’s demonic layers, Smith defangs the disorder with great humor and evocatively expresses its self-destructive absurdities and painful internal coherence. Aaron Beck, the most influential doctor in modern psychotherapy, says that “Monkey Mind does for anxiety what William Styron’s Darkness Visible did for depression.” Neurologist and bestselling writer Oliver Sacks says, “I read Monkey Mind with admiration for its bravery and clarity….I broke out into explosive laughter again and again.” Here, finally, comes relief and recognition to all those who want someone to put what they feel, or what their loved ones feel, into words.

The Monkey as Mirror

Symbolic Transformations in Japanese History and Ritual

Author: Emiko Ohnuki-Tierney

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 9780691028460

Category: History

Page: 269

View: 8285

This tripartite study of the monkey metaphor, the monkey performance, and the 'special status' people traces changes in Japanese culture from the eighth century to the present. During early periods of Japanese history the monkey's nearness to the human-animal boundary made it a revered mediator or an animal deity closest to humans. Later it became a scapegoat mocked for its vain efforts to behave in a human fashion. Modern Japanese have begun to see a new meaning in the monkey--a clown who turns itself into an object of laughter while challenging the basic assumptions of Japanese culture and society.
