It is the autobiographical account of an excursion to the mountains of Cadore which is the background to the exposition of numerous personages of school and home, a large round up of singular figures, all really known by the author until the time of second high school in Treviso (Italy). With the characters are highlighted also the characteristics of the sixties in a society that was coming out at a forced march from the ruins of World War II. The actual story takes place over eight days in the mountains of Cadore between Calalzo and San Vito. Between one breath and the next the author recalls friends, countrymen, relatives, teachers and many other characters that deserve to be remembered.
Late medieval manuscripts and early modern print history form the focus of this volume. It includes new work on the compilation of some important medieval manuscript miscellanies and major studies of merchant patronage and of a newly revealed woman patron, alongside explorations of medieval texts and the post-medieval reception history of Langland, Chaucer and Nicholas Love. It thus pays a fitting tribute to the career of Professor A.S.G. Edwards, highlighting his scholarly interests and demonstrating the influence of his achievements. Carol M.

Olivia Grace is completely average. Or so she thinks . . . until Her Royal Highness, Princess Mia Thermopolis turns up at her school one day and whisks Olivia away to New York City! In a limo, no less! Where you can eat all the cookies you want and the ceiling lights up pink and purple - like a disco! But discovering that your father is actually the Prince of Genovia is quite a shock. Especially since it means you're a descendent of the Kingdom of Genovia, and a princess. Olivia's got a lot to learn about her long-lost family - and everyone's got a lot to learn about her!

Framed around the concept of culture, CULTURE COUNTS, 4th Edition, uses ethnographic storytelling to draw students into the material and teach valuable critical-thinking skills. The text focuses on how culture directs and explains people's behavior, thereby helping students understand the world today as well as how humans can solve problems and effect positive change. Using an authoritative yet conversational voice, the authors emphasize contemporary issues, the impact of globalization, gender issues, equalities and inequalities, cross-cultural comparisons, and American culture. These topics are important to both the study of anthropology and understanding of the world around you.
