"The Flight of the Heron" – Set in Scotland during the Jacobite rising of 1745, this is the story of an unlikely friendship between a young Jacobite and Highland chieftain Ewen Cameron who follows Bonnie Prince Charlie in his bid for the throne and a Government Army Officer, the Englishman Captain Keith Windham of the Royal Scots. In the battle of Culloden Cameron captures Windham after swordfight and takes him prisoner. Windham manages to escape, but by the prophecy of Cameron's visionary foster father, the two men are about to cross paths five times. "The Gleam in the North" – In an unsettling time following Jacobite Rebellion, Ewen Cameron is living in Scottish Highlands by his beloved loch with his offspring, two young boys. When his younger son falls in the cold loch water, he gets rescued in the last minute and falls ill, so Ewen goes strolling through hills and moors looking for someone who can help his boy. However, King George's Redcoats are patrolling through the Highlands, assisted by local clan spies, lurking to catch mutineers from the Rebellion. Ewen gets captured and taken to London to be executed where he inevitably crosses paths with his old friend Keith Windham. "The Dark Mile" – Ewen Cameron of Ardroy lives in peace with his beloved Alison and their two young boys, when they get a visit by Ian Stewart, Ewen's cousin who is being pressured to get married. He is not happy with choices presented to him, so he tries to avoid it, but when he meets beautiful Olivia Campbell they get romantically involved. However, their relationship is not welcomed by their families who have some unresolved issues dating from the time of the Rebellion.
Between the two world wars, on a hike in the English countryside, Professor John Hill takes refuge from a violent storm in a cave. There he nearly loses his life, but he also makes an astonishing discovery -- an ancient manuscript housed in a cunningly crafted metal box. Though a philologist by profession, Hill cannot identify the language used in the manuscript and the time period in which it is was made, but he knows enough to make an educated guess -- that the book and its case are the fruits of a long-lost, but advanced civilization. The translation of the manuscript and the search for its origins become a life-long quest for Hill. As he uncovers an epic that both enchants and inspires him, he tracks down scholars from Oxford to Paris who can give him clues. Along the way, he meets several intriguing characters, including a man keenly interested in obtaining artifacts from a long-lost civilization that he believes was the creation of a superior race, and will help him fulfill his ambition to rule other men. Concluding that Hill must have found something that may help him in this quest, but knowing not what it is and where it is hidden, he has Hill, his friends at Oxford, and his family shadowed and threatened until finally he and Hill face off in a final, climatic confrontation. A story that features a giant pirate and slaver, a human chameleon on a perilous metaphysical journey, a mysterious hermit, and creatures both deadly and beautiful, this is a novel that explores the consequences of the predominant ideas of the 20th Century.

A Subversive Gleam: Max Bill and His Time: 1908-1939 by Anonim Pdf
The early life of a modernist polymath and concrete-art pioneer: the first of a new two-volume biography by Bill's widow, art historian Angela Thomas Swiss artist Max Bill (1908-94) was a master of many trades during his lifetime: he was at once an architect, graphic designer, painter, industrial designer and typeface designer. A student of greats such as Wassily Kandinsky and Paul Klee at the Bauhaus in Dessau, Bill developed his own unique practice of integrated design under their tutelage, cultivating a more contemporary interpretation of more traditional Bauhaus sensibilities. He went on to become one of the main advocates of the concrete art movement, joining the Allianz group of Swiss artists in 1937. In this first volume of a major new biography, Bill's widow, art historian Angela Thomas, recounts the formative years of Bill's life from his childhood in a small Swiss town to his time at the Bauhaus. With a lively cadence that speaks to her intimate knowledge of the architect himself, Thomas details Bill's beginnings in Zurich as a young independent designer as part of a larger portrait of Europe's political and artistic world in the decades before World War II. Originally written in German and now translated into English for the first time, A Subversive Gleamprovides readers with an in-depth account of the origins of one of Europe's most influential designers.
In the name of efficiency, the practice of education has come to be dominated by neoliberal ideology and procedures of standardization and quantification. Such attempts to make all aspects of practice transparent and subject to systematic accounting lack sensitivity to the invisible and the silent, to something in the human condition that cannot readily be expressed in an either-or form. Seeking alternatives to such trends, Saito reads Dewey’s idea of progressive education through the lens of Emersonian moral perfectionism (to borrow a term coined by Stanley Cavell). She elucidates a spiritual and aesthetic dimension to Dewey’s notion of growth, one considerably richer than what Dewey alone presents in his typically scientific terminology.
The Factory is the law - but Wild Alan is about to discover that law does not mean justice. The gargantuan Factory of Gleam is an ancient, hulking edifice of stone, metal and glass ruled over by chaste alchemists and astronomer priests. As millennia have passed, the population has decreased, and now only the central district is fully inhabited and operational; the outskirts have been left for the wilderness to reclaim. This decaying, lawless zone is the Discard, and Wild Alan's home. Clever, arrogant and perpetually angry, Wild Alan is both loved and loathed by the Discard's misfits. He's convinced that the Gleam authorities were behind the disaster that killed his parents and his ambition is to prove it. But he's about to uncover more than he bargained for.
