In the final book of a trilogy that began with her bestselling novel, The Secret River, Commonwealth Prize–winner Kate Grenville returns to the youngest daughter of the Thornhills and her quest to uncover, at her peril, the family’s hidden legacy. Sarah is the youngest child of William Thornhill, the pioneer at the center of The Secret River. Unknown to her, her father—an uneducated ex-convict from London—has built his fortune on the blood of Aboriginal people. With a fine stone house and plenty of money, Thornhill has re-invented himself. As he tells his daughter, he “never looks back,” and Sarah grows up learning not to ask about the past. Instead her eyes are on handsome Jack Langland, whom she’s loved since she was a child. Their romance seems destined, but the ugly secret in Sarah’s family is poised to ambush them both. As she did with The Secret River, Grenville once again digs into her own family history to tell a story about the past that still resonates today. Driven by the captivating voice of the illiterate Sarah—at once headstrong, sympathetic, curious, and refreshingly honest—this is an unforgettable portrait of a passionate woman caught up in a historical moment of astonishing turmoil.

German Political Philosophy

The Metaphysics of Law

Author: Chris Thornhill

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1134382804

Category: Philosophy

Page: 416

View: 8506

This book combines philosophical, intellectual-historical and political-theoretical methodologies to provide a new synoptic reading of the history of German political philosophy. Incorporating chapters on the political ideas of Luther and Zwingli, on the politics of the early Enlightenment, on Idealism, on Historicism and Lukács, on early Twentieth-Century political theology, on the Frankfurt School, and on Habermas and Luhmann, the book sets out both a broad and a detailed discussion of German political reflection from the Reformation to the present. In doing so, it explains how the development of German political philosophy is marked by a continual concern with certain unresolved and recurrent problems. It claims that all the major positions address questions relating to the origin of law, that all seek to account for the relation between legal validity and metaphysical and theological superstructures, and that all are centred on the attempt to conceptualise and reconstruct the character of the legal subject.

Karl Jaspers

Politics and Metaphysics

Author: Dr Chris Thornhill,Chris Thornhill

Publisher: Routledge

ISBN: 1136454098

Category: Philosophy

Page: 288

View: 1336

This book sets out a new reading of the much-neglected philosophy of Karl Jaspers. By questioning the common perception of Jaspers either as a proponent of irrationalist cultural philosophy or as an early, peripheral disciple of Martin Heidegger, it re-establishes him as a central figure in modern European philosophy. Giving particular consideration to his position in epistemological, metaphysical and political debate, the author argues that Jaspers's work deserves renewed consideration in a number of important discussions, particularly in hermeneutics, anthropological reflections on religion, the critique of idealism, and debates on the end of metaphysics.

The Evolutionary Biology of Human Female Sexuality

Author: Randy Thornhill,Steven W. Gangestad

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0195340981

Page: 411

Research conducted over the last fifteen years has placed in question many of the traditional conclusions about the evolution of human female sexuality. Women have not lost estrus, as earlier researchers thought, but it is simply concealed, resulting in two functionally distinct sexualitieswith markedly different ends in each phase. At the fertile phase of the cycle, women prefer male traits that may mark superior genetic quality, and at infertile phases, they prefer men willing to invest resources in a mate. Thus, women's peri-ovulatory sexuality functions to obtain a sire ofsuperior genetic quality, and is homologous with estrus in other vertebrates. This model sheds light on male human sexuality as well: men perceive and respond to women's estrus, including by increased mate guarding. Men's response is limited, compared to other vertebrate males, implyingcoevolutionary history of selection on females to conceal estrus from men and selection on men to detect it. Research indicates that women's concealed estrus is an adaptation to copulate conditionally with men other than the pair-bond partner.Women's sexual ornaments-the estrogen-facilitatedfeatures of face and body-are honest signals of individual quality pertaining to future reproductive value.

Thirty-one years ago (August 3, 1981) my life changed so drastically that I thought I d never recover and never again be the wife and mother that I had always hoped to be. In order for you to know the contents of this book, I ll cut right to the chase. I had a complete mental and emotional breakdown, the results of which left me with some horrible, almost unbearable effects that I could never ever have handled on my own. Prior to writing this book, I don t think I ve ever written anything except a few poems in high school (and they certainly were not very great). I ve been told over the years that I should write a book about my life, but the main reason I m writing this is because I feel that the Lord told me to do this. Therefore, I feel that I am obeying Him, and I found out There s Always Hope .

A few days later a young woman is dead. 1950 At Balmoral Castle in Scotland, the King and Queen are enjoying their summer holiday away from the hustle and bustle of London. During their visit the Queen's pearl-drop earrings go missing. A few weeks later the housekeeper is found dead. 1999 As a writer of historical novels, Victoria Green, is very good at research.

Victoria is the descendent of Todd Thornhill, a department store magnate who built the magnificent Thornhill Manor, one of Victoria's favourite holiday spots. On her most recent visit to her great-aunt, Elizabeth Thornhill, the heir to the Manor, she is put in her great-aunt Emily's old room. While looking through some bookshelves, Victoria discovers a hidden box that contains Emily's journal from 1925. Victoria is enthralled when she reads the journal, packed with Emily's vivid descriptions of life on the estate. The journal hints that Emily's untimely death was anything but an accident. Intrigued, Victoria, begins a search to unravel the Thornhill Secret. What really happened to Emily Thornhill, and who was responsible for her death?

Niklas Luhmann's Theory of Politics and Law

Author: M. King,C. Thornhill

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 0230503586

Category: Social Science

Page: 266

View: 1012

Niklas Luhmann's social theory stands in direct opposition to the dominant 'anthropocentric' traditions of legal and political analysis. King and Thornhill now offer the first comprehensive, critical examination of Luhmann's highly original theory of the operations of the legal and political systems. They describe how from the perspective of his 'sociological enlightenment' Luhmann continually calls to account the certainties, the ambitions and rational foundations of The Enlightenment and the idealized versions of law and politics which they have produced.
