Pandaemonium 1660–1886 by , Book Summary:

Collecting texts taken from letters, diaries, literature, scientific journals and reports, Pandæmonium gathers a beguiling narrative as it traces the development of the machine age in Britain. Covering the years between 1660 and 1886, it offers a rich tapestry of human experience, from eyewitness reports of the Luddite Riots and the Peterloo Massacre to more intimate accounts of child labour, Utopian communities, the desecration of the natural world, ground-breaking scientific experiments, and the coming of the railways. Humphrey Jennings, co-founder of the Mass Observation movement of the 1930s and acclaimed documentary film-maker, assembled an enthralling narrative of this key period in Britain’s national consciousness. The result is a highly original artistic achievement in its own right. Thanks to the efforts of his daughter, Marie-Louise Jennings, Pandæmonium was originally published in 1985, and in 2012 it was the inspiration behind Danny Boyle’s electrifying Opening Ceremony for the London Olympic Games. Frank Cottrell Boyce, who wrote the scenario for the ceremony, contributes a revealing new foreword for this edition.

Pandaemonium by Ben Macallan Book Summary:

DESDAEMONA HAS HELL AT HER HEELS! Desdaemona’s done a bad, bad thing. Again. So she’s back on the road; and where better to look for shelter than with the boy she was running from before? But trouble follows. If it wasn’t Jacey’s parents who sent the deadly Twa Corbies in chase of her, then who was it? Deep under London, among the lost and rejected of two worlds, answers begin to emerge from Desi’s hidden past. Answers that send her north, in a flight that turns into a hunt, with strange companions and stranger prey. Dangers lie ahead and behind, and inconvenient passions ambush her just when she needs a clear head. At the last, even Desi has to beg for help. From one who has more cause than most to want her dead...

Pandaemonium by Christopher Brookmyre Book Summary:

The senior pupils of St Peter's High School are on retreat to a secluded outdoor activity centre, coming to terms with the murder of a fellow pupil through the means you would expect: counselling, contemplation, candid discussion and even prayer - not to mention booze, drugs, clandestine liaisons and as much partying as they can get away with. Not so far away, the commanders of a top-secret military experiment, long-since spiralled out of control, fear they may have literally unleashed the forces of Hell. Two very different worlds are on a collision course, and will clash in an earthly battle between science and the supernatural, philosophy and faith, civilisation and savagery.

PandaemoniuM by Bruno Maiorano Book Summary:

La casa della famiglia Badalamenti sarebbe come tutte le altre, non fosse che i suoi corridoi ospitano talvolta stanze che non le appartengono. Il fenomeno inizia a manifestarsi a un gruppo di bambini allorché, fra le pareti dell’appartamento da loro soprannominato "Il Labirinto", inventano il gioco Pandemonio, e si rivela funesto quando Lavinia, una delle sorelle Badalamenti, scompare senza lasciare traccia. Anni dopo, il signor Badalamenti, Riccardo, riceve una chiave in uno strano cofanetto con su inciso un emblema esoterico, che lo porterà a riconsiderare l'esistenza di un uomo misterioso creduto una fantasia di Lavinia, il Mago Artigiano, probabile responsabile della scomparsa della bambina. Ora Riccardo deve riuscire ad aprire la porta giusta, con il rischio, però, di addentrarsi in cose più grandi di lui, e di scatenare un vero pandemonio.

Pandaemonium by A. Silvestri Book Summary:

Hold da helt kæft, sagde han højt.
"Hvad?", spurgte Daniel. Benjamin sagde ikke noget men pegede blot ud af vinduet. Daniel drejede hovedet og fulgte drengens finger.
Langt, langt ude over det flade landskab kunne han se en stor plamage, der sløvt rykkede tættere på.

"Rasmus, kig lige", sagde han lavt. I et par sekunder var der ingen der sagde noget. Så nærmest hviskede Rasmus.
"Er det der hvad, jeg tror, det er?" De andre nikkede langsomt.
"Zombier. En hel hær af dem", sagde Daniel.
De kunne ikke rive deres blikke væk fra den enorme, bølgende masse, der langsomt, men sikkert, slimede sig nærmere.

"Hvor fanden kommer de alle sammen fra?", spurgte Daniel med dirrende stemme. "Sydfra", svarede Rasmus uden at fjerne blikket fra synet.
"Et eller andet må have fået dem til at gå herop".

Et sted i København begynder virkeligheden at skride i sømmene.
Fluer i græshoppestore sværme torpederer folk og skaber kaos.
Ondskaben kommer til verden i en lejlighed på Nørrebro. Presset ud af menneskekød.
Mast til ukendelighed under fluesværme genopstår mennesker nu fra de døde.

Den makabre kamp for overlevelse begynder, og den er dømt ulige fra starten af. For hvordan overlever man når flænsende og hjernedøde zombier pludselig er i overtal i en millionby? En lille gruppe overlevende forskanser sig et sted i Danmark og tager kampen op mod ondskaben. Spørgsmålet er blot, om overlevelse overhovedet er mulig, når zombiehæren glubsk nærmer sig.

The Quest for a Moral Compass by Kenan Malik Book Summary:

The story of the global search for moral truths In this remarkable and groundbreaking book, Kenan Malik explores the history of moral thought as it has developed over three millennia, from Homer’s Greece to Mao’s China, from ancient India to modern America. It tells the stories of the great philosophers, and breathes life into their ideas, while also challenging many of our most cherished moral beliefs. Engaging and provocative, The Quest for a Moral Compass confronts some of humanity’s deepest questions. Where do values come from? Is God necessary for moral guidance? Are there absolute moral truths? It also brings morality down to earth, showing how, throughout history, social needs and political desires have shaped moral thinking. It is a history of the world told through the history of moral thought, and a history of moral thought that casts new light on global history.

The Master and His Emissary by Iain McGilchrist Book Summary:

A new edition of the bestselling classic—published with a special introduction to mark its 10th anniversary This pioneering account sets out to understand the structure of the human brain – the place where mind meets matter. Until recently, the left hemisphere of our brain has been seen as the ‘rational’ side, the superior partner to the right. But is this distinction true? Drawing on a vast body of experimental research, Iain McGilchrist argues while our left brain makes for a wonderful servant, it is a very poor master. As he shows, it is the right side which is the more reliable and insightful. Without it, our world would be mechanistic – stripped of depth, colour and value.

Jordan helps kids on the run find their way back home. He’s good at that. He should be – he’s a runaway himself. Sometimes he helps the kids in other, stranger, ways. He looks like a regular teenager, but he’s not. He acts like he’s not exactly human, but he is. He treads the line between mundane reality and the world of the supernatural. Desdaemona also knows the non-human world far too well. She tracks Jordan down and enlists his aid in searching for her lost sister Fay, who did a Very Bad Thing involving an immortal. This may be a mistake – for both of them. Too many people are interested now, and some of them are not people at all.

Pandemonium by Gibson Burrell Book Summary:

`A truly bizarre and sometimes filthy historical canter through abatoirs, satyriasis and Noel Edmonds' House Party, among other things, towards a theory of organisation' - The Times 'The author pursues a vigorous polemic on organisational development' - Financial Times In this irreverent and inventive book, Gibson Burrell seeks to circumvent the established frameworks which have defined our understanding of organization and organizations. He brings us tales from under the edge which enmire us in the nether side of modernist organization. By looking backwards deep into the history of Western societies, and sideways across the broad domain of social and cultural theory, Pandemonium disconcerts and invigorates the domain of the study of organizations. Through his experimental device of the two-directional text, Burrell offers multi-layered meanings and a metaphor for the rejection of linearity. This is not an organizational behaviour textbook but an exploration that will take organization theory into a new era.

Pandemonium and Parade by Michael Dylan Foster Book Summary:

Water sprites, mountain goblins, shape-shifting animals, and the monsters known as yôkai have long haunted the Japanese cultural landscape. This history of the strange and mysterious in Japan seeks out these creatures in folklore, encyclopedias, literature, art, science, games, manga, magazines, and movies, exploring their meanings in the Japanese cultural imagination and offering an abundance of valuable and, until now, understudied material. Michael Dylan Foster tracks yôkai over three centuries, from their appearance in seventeenth-century natural histories to their starring role in twentieth-century popular media. Focusing on the intertwining of belief and commodification, fear and pleasure, horror and humor, he illuminates different conceptions of the "natural" and the "ordinary" and sheds light on broader social and historical paradigms—and ultimately on the construction of Japan as a nation.

Beginning with the premise that the biopic is a form of adaptation and an example of intermediality, this collection examines the multiplicity of 'source texts' and the convergence of different media in this genre, alongside the concurrent issues of fidelity and authenticity that accompany this form. The contributors focus on big and small screen biopics of British celebrities from the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries, attending to their myth-making and myth-breaking potential. Related topics are the contemporary British biopic's participation in the production and consumption of celebrated lives, and the biopic's generic fluidity and hybridity as evidenced in its relationship to such forms as the bio-docudrama. Offering case studies of film biographies of literary and cultural icons, including Elizabeth I, Elizabeth II, Diana Princess of Wales, John Lennon, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Beau Brummel, Carrington and Beatrix Potter, the essays address how British identity and heritage are interrogated in the (re)telling and showing of these lives, and how the reimagining of famous lives for the screen is influenced by recent processes of manufacturing celebrity.
