In today's world, freedom is our basic condition, and until we learn to live with that freedom, and learn to live by ourselves and with ourselves, we are denying ourselves the possibility of finding love and happiness with someone else. Love can only happen through freedom and in conjunction with a deep respect for ourselves and the other. Is it possible to be alone and not lonely? Where are the boundaries that define "lust" versus "love"...and can lust ever grow into love? In Love, Freedom, Aloneness you will find unique, radical, and intelligent perspectives on these and other essential questions. In our post-ideological world, where old moralities are out of date, we have a golden opportunity to redefine and revitalize the very foundations of our lives. We have the chance to start afresh with ourselves, our relationships to others, and to find fulfillment and success for the individual and for society as a whole.

The contrast between religion and law has been continuous throughout Muslim history. Islamic law has always existed in a tension between these two forces: God, who gave the law, and the state--the sultan--representing society and implementing the law. This tension and dynamic have created a very particular history for the law--in how it was formulated and by whom, in its theoretical basis and its actual rules, and in how it was practiced in historical reality from the time of its formation until today. That is the main theme of this book. Knut S. Vikor introduces the development and practice of Islamic law to a wide readership: students, lawyers, and the growing number of those interested in Islamic civilization. He summarizes the main concepts of Islamic jurisprudence; discusses debates concerning the historicity of Islamic sources of dogma and the dating of early Islamic law; describes the classic practice of the law, in the formulation and elaboration of legal rules and practice in the courts; and sets out various substantive legal rules, on such vital matters as the family and economic activity.

Benito Cereno is a novella by Herman Melville. It was first serialized in Putnam's Monthly in 1855 and later included a slightly revised version in his collection The Piazza Tales (1856). With its intense mix of mystery, adventure, and a surprise ending, Benito Cereno at first seems merely a provocative example from the genre Herman Melville created with his early best-selling novels of the sea. Based on a real life incident—the character names remain unchanged—Benito Cereno tells what happens when an American merchant ship comes upon a mysterious Spanish ship where the nearly all-black crew and their white captain are starving and yet hostile to offers of help…

"Garth Clark's friendship with Beatrice Wood began in 1978, when he interviewed her for his book A Century of Ceramics in the United States: 1878-1978. It was a turning point for both. Wood, a ceramic artist and famously free spirit of the Dada era, was 85 years old. Although she was still producing pottery, her sales were slow and she despaired over her financial future. Clark, a much admired art historian and author, became her patron and close friend. Three years later, when the Garth Clark Gallery opened in Los Angeles, its premiere exhibition was Beatrice Wood: A Very Private View. The show - a financial and commercial success - was the first of dozens of Beatrice Wood exhibitions hosted by Clark over the next seventeen years, until her passing in 1998 at 105 years of age." "Now, three years after her death, Clark has produced an illustrated memoir of his cherished friend. Gilded Vessel presents Wood's incomparable ceramic forms in photographs of exceptional beauty and clarity; it is the first book to feature this work extensively in large-format color reproductions. Biographical photographs document her friendships with fellow artists ranging from Marcel Duchamp to Anais Nin to Lily Tomlin. These images are perfectly complemented by Clark's wry and affectionate narrative."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
