The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova Book Summary:

In this internationally bestselling novel, the author of The Swan Thieves has 'refashioned the vampire myth into a compelling...late-night page-turner' - San Francisco Chronicle Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters addressed ominously to 'My dear and unfortunate successor'. Her discovery plunges her into a world she never dreamed of - a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an evil hidden in the depths of history. In those few quiet moments, she unwittingly assumes a quest she will discover is her birthright - a hunt for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the medieval ruler whose barbarous reign formed the basis of the Dracula myth. Deciphering obscure signs and hidden texts, reading codes worked into the fabric of medieval monastic traditions, and evading terrifying adversaries, one woman comes ever closer to the secret of her own past and a confrontation with the very definition of evil. Elizabeth Kostova's debut novel is an adventure of monumental proportions - a captivating tale that blends fact and fantasy, history and the present with an assurance that is almost unbearably suspenseful - and utterly unforgettable. 'Quite extraordinary....Kostova is a natural storyteller....She has refashioned the vampire myth into a compelling contemporary novel, a late-night page-turner' - San Francisco Chronicle 'Filled with fascinating details of archaic vampire lore, the splendours of the Ottoman Empire and the beauty of the Romanian countryside' - Times Literary Supplement

Who Is the Historian?

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Who Is the Historian? by Nigel A. Raab Book Summary:

Today's students are questioning why they should take courses in the humanities and social sciences. Using a conversational voice, Raab provides an answer by explaining the role of the historian and what she or he does. Fully cognizant that most students will not become historians in universities, Raab provides examples of people who use their historical educations in other environments. Each chapter describes a specific aspect of "doing history," beginning with the spaces where historians work (e.g. archives). Readers are then introduced to the material with which historians work (primary sources) and the collaborations that exist between historians, librarians, and archivists. Raab also explores the impact of the digital age on historical work, the particular skillset imparted to those with an education in history, and the relationship between history and the humanities.

The Historian and Film

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Historian and Film by Paul Smith,Cambridge University Press Book Summary:

Film is increasingly engaging the attention of students of history at all levels. In its manifold forms from the newsreel to the 'feature', it is a major source of evidence for, and an important influence upon, contemporary history, and a vivid means of bringing the recent past to life. For earlier periods, it provides a medium in which the often widely dispersed visual evidences of the past can be brought together for the student. It offers the historian a new form in which to interpret and present his subject, and, as television has shown, it is by far the most important vehicle for the presentation of history to mass audiences. The analysis of its content and impact and the exploration of its uses are especially fitted to bring history into an interdisciplinary relationship with other fields, from sociology to the visual arts.

The Historian

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova Book Summary:

To you, perceptive reader, I bequeath my history....Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor," and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of-a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.The letters provide links to one of the darkest powers that humanity has ever known-and to a centuries-long quest to find the source of that darkness and wipe it out. It is a quest for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the medieval ruler whose barbarous reign formed the basis of the legend of Dracula. Generations of historians have risked their reputations, their sanity, and even their lives to learn the truth about Vlad the Impaler and Dracula. Now one young woman must decide whether to take up this quest herself-to follow her father in a hunt that nearly brought him to ruin years ago, when he was a vibrant young scholar and her mother was still alive. What does the legend of Vlad the Impaler have to do with the modern world? Is it possible that the Dracula of myth truly existed-and that he has lived on, century after century, pursuing his own unknowable ends? The answers to these questions cross time and borders, as first the father and then the daughter search for clues, from dusty Ivy League libraries to Istanbul, Budapest, and the depths of Eastern Europe. In city after city, in monasteries and archives, in letters and in secret conversations, the horrible truth emerges about Vlad the Impaler's dark reign-and about a time-defying pact that may have kept his awful work alive down through the ages.Parsing obscure signs and hidden texts, reading codes worked into the fabric of medieval monastic traditions-and evading the unknown adversaries who will go to any lengths to conceal and protect Vlad's ancient powers-one woman comes ever closer to the secret of her own past and a confrontation with the very definition of evil. Elizabeth Kostova's debut novel is an adventure of monumental proportions, a relentless tale that blends fact and fantasy, history and the present, with an assurance that is almost unbearably suspenseful-and utterly unforgettable.

This Part also includes two new chapters for this edition.

Film and the Historian

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Films are not just for audiences: historians of the twentieth century have much to learn from them.

This provides a basis for cross-cultural comparisons, with many issues deserving of further research being highlighted.

Gender and the Historian

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Gender and the Historian by Johanna Alberti Book Summary:

Why are most famous historians men? How have women changed the writing of history over the last decades? What lives and stories have been hidden from history? Until recently history was predominantly the domain of men. That men were the authors of our past meant that in many cases only half of the story was told. In the second half of the twentieth century, however, the picture changed. Women, and indeed some men as well, started to address gender history. Women had been investigated historically before, but never with such intensity, nor such breadth. The impetus for this writing was both political and academic as feminists were determined to explore lives which until then had been disregarded. Gender and the Historian charts the entry and development of this new history, showing how such considerations furthered postmodernism and ultimately reinvigorated the very core of History..

Plants, Patients, and the Historians

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Plants, Patients, and the Historians by Paolo Palladino Book Summary:

Plants, Patients, and the Historian examines the relationship between the act of historical recollection and the coming "age of genetic engineering." Paolo Palladino provides a history of genetics in Britain from its inception as an agricultural science in the early years of the twentieth century to its contemporary biomedical applications. The book focuses specifically on the institutionalization of two cases--plant breeding and the genetics of cancer. More subtly, however, the author suggests that the ability to tinker with genetic material--which is itself a form of history--changes our understanding of the past. Like plants and patients, the archive is not simply a repository of the past, but is instead the principle of formation of the past, the present, and the future. In explaining the similarities and their conceptual implications, the author argues further that the same principle of formation that creates the historical actor, the plant or patient that once was, also produces the historian or geneticist who is and will be. Theoretically informed and empirically substantiated, Plants, Patients, and the Historian is an innovative study at the intersection of critical theory, science and technology studies, and historiography.

Herodotos the Historian (Routledge Revivals)

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Herodotos the Historian (Routledge Revivals) by K. H. Waters Book Summary:

The work of Herodotos of Halikarnassos, ‘the father of history’, differs in many ways from that of modern historians, and it poses special problems to the student. Herodotos’ history of the Persian Wars, written in the second half of the fifth century BC, was both the first attempt at a comprehensive history and the first lengthy prose narrative in the Western cultural tradition. There was an almost total lack of written historical evidence in Greece at the time, and the audiences who paid to hear Herodotos’ lectures also expected historical dramatizations, and enjoyed descriptive material and anecdotes that today would be relegated to notes. In Herodotus the Historian, first published in 1985, K.H. Waters offers a comprehensive introduction to Herodotus’ background, aims, and methods. In a lively, informative style, this work offers a level-headed approach to an historian who has excited some extreme reactions and incited controversy among modern readers.

Faith and the Historian

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Faith and the Historian by Nick Salvatore Book Summary:

Faith and the Historian collects essays from eight experienced historians discussing the impact of being "touched" by Catholicism on their vision of history. That first graduate seminar, these essays suggest, did not mark the inception of one's historical sensibilities; rather, that process had deeper, and earlier, roots. The authors--ranging from "cradle to the grave" Catholics to those who haven’t practiced for forty years, and everywhere in between--explicitly investigate the interplay between their personal lives and beliefs and the sources of their professional work. A variety of heartfelt, illuminating, and sometimes humorous experiences emerge from these stories of intelligent people coming to terms with their Catholic backgrounds as they mature and enter the academy. Contributors include: Philip Gleason, David Emmons, Maureen Fitzgerald, Joseph A. McCartin, Mario T. Garcia, Nick Salvatore, James R. Barrett, and Anne M. Butler.

Luke the Historian in Light of Research

The Historian Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Luke the Historian in Light of Research by Archibald Thomas Robertson Book Summary:

“The work of the last fifteen years has created new interest in the writings of Luke. The relation of Luke’s Gospel to Mark’s Gospel and the Logia of Jesus has sharply defined his own critical methods and processes. The researches of Harnack, Hobart, and Ramsay have restored the credit of Luke with many critics who had been carried away by the criticism of Baur, and who looked askance upon the value of Luke as the historian of early Christianity. It has been like mining—digging now here, now there. The items in Luke’s books that were attacked have been taken up one by one. The work has been slow and piecemeal, of necessity. But it is now possible to gather together into a fairly complete picture the results. It is a positively amazing vindication of Luke. The force of the argument is cumulative and tremendous. One needs to have the patience to work through the details with candor and a willingness to see all the facts with no prejudice against Luke or against the supernatural origin of Christianity.” —From the Preface
