Accountant turned professional monster hunter, Owen Zastava Pitt, managed to stop the nefarious Old Ones invasion plans last year, but as a result made an enemy out of one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Now an evil death cult known as the Church of the Temporary Mortal Condition wants to capture Owen in order to gain the favor of the great Old Ones. The Condition is led by a fanatical necromancer known as the Shadow Man. The government wants to capture the Shadow Man and has assigned the enigmatic Agent Franks to be Owens full time bodyguard, which is a polite way of saying that Owen is monster bait. With supernatural assassins targeting his family, a spy in their midst, and horrific beasties lurking around every corner, Owen and the staff of Monster Hunter International dont need to go hunting, because this time the monsters are hunting them. Fortunately, this bait is armed and very dangerous... At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

English summary: This collection of articles has two aims: The first is to create a comprehensive compendium of iconography on GilgameU. It includes reprints of three formerly published articles by Ruth Opificius (1970), Wilfred G. Lambert (1987) and Dominique Collon (2002). The second aim is to publish some objects of Near Eastern art from the Bible+Orient Collection in Fribourg, which relate to GilgameU. Seven new papers deal with the visual representation of GilgameU. Two of them discuss terracotta plaques and cylinder seals from the Bible+Orient Collection. The terms iconography and iconology have often been used loosely. In order to understand which method the authors of this book apply, an introductory article connects them to the history of the academic disciplines of archaeology and of art history. German description: Dieser Sammelband verfolgt zwei Ziele: Einerseits will er ein Kompendium zur GilgameU-Ikonographie bieten. Zu diesem Zweck werden drei Untersuchungen nachgedruckt und durch neue Forschungsbeitrage erganzt. Andererseits sollen Bildzeugnisse der Sammlung Bibel+Orient in Freiburg publiziert werden, die einen Bezug zu Themen der GilgameU-Legenden aufweisen. Die Begriffe Ikonographie und Ikonologie werden oft recht frei gebraucht. Um zu verstehen, welche Methode die Autoren dieses Bandes anwenden, ordnet sie ein einfuhrender Artikel in die Wissenschaftsgeschichte der Archaologie und Kunstgeschichte ein. Ausgehend von Humbaba-Masken identifiziert R. Opificius im ersten nachgedruckten Artikel den Typus einer Dreiergruppe, in der zwei Helden den in der Mitte befindlichen Gegner besiegen, mit der Uberwindung Humbabas durch GilgameU und Enkidu. W.G. Lambert vergleicht in seinem Artikel systematisch unterschiedliche Versionen des Epos mit bildlichen Darstellungen. D. Collon hat ihren Aufsatz fur diesen Band aktualisiert und erganzt. Der grosste Teil des ikonographischen Materials, das den Kampf von GilgameU und Enkidu gegen Humbaba darstellt, findet sich auf Rollsiegeln und greift eine haufig auf Siegeln abgebildete Konstellation auf, namlich den Dreifiguren-Kampf. Die beiden nachsten Beitrage stammen von Philologen. C. Mittermayer wirft ein Schlaglicht auf die Literaturgeschichte des GilgameU-Epos. D. Frayne untersucht, ob Keilschrifttexte und Rollsiegel des 3. Jahrtausends v. Chr. einen Bezug zu GilgameU aufweisen. U. Seidl beschreibt verschiedene altbabylonische Terrakotta-Reliefs, von denen einige aus der Sammlung Bibel+Orient stammen. Sie benennt zunachst vor-ikonographisch die Gegenstande und Figuren. Dann unternimmt sie eine ikonographische Analyse des Themas der Terrakotta-Releifes, welches sie als GilgameU's Zug zum Zedernwald bestimmt. T. Ornan stellt schriftliche Versionen des Epos und Bilder nebeneinander. Mit Hilfe bildlicher Darstellungen, die alter sind als die schriftlichen Zeugnisse, kann sie die Entwicklungsgeschichte der Erzahlungen und verloren gegangene Versionen rekonstruieren. M.-A. Atac fragt nach der tieferen Bedeutung von Zeichen, Symbolen und Figurentypen mit Bezug zu GilgameU in der neuassyrischen Kunst. H.U. Steymans stellt das Material uber GilgameU in der Levante zusammen. Seine Liste umfasst die Keilschrifttafeln, die Handlungssequenzen der auf ihnen erhaltenen Texte und das Bildmaterial.

When he died in 2004, Jacques Derrida left behind a vast legacy of unpublished material, much of it in the form of written lectures. With The Beast and the Sovereign, Volume 1, the University of Chicago Press inaugurates an ambitious series, edited by Geoffrey Bennington and Peggy Kamuf, translating these important works into English. The Beast and the Sovereign, Volume 1 launches the series with Derrida’s exploration of the persistent association of bestiality or animality with sovereignty. In this seminar from 2001–2002, Derrida continues his deconstruction of the traditional determinations of the human. The beast and the sovereign are connected, he contends, because neither animals nor kings are subject to the law—the sovereign stands above it, while the beast falls outside the law from below. He then traces this association through an astonishing array of texts, including La Fontaine’s fable “The Wolf and the Lamb,” Hobbes’s biblical sea monster in Leviathan, D. H. Lawrence’s poem “Snake,” Machiavelli’s Prince with its elaborate comparison of princes and foxes, a historical account of Louis XIV attending an elephant autopsy, and Rousseau’s evocation of werewolves in The Social Contract. Deleuze, Lacan, and Agamben also come into critical play as Derrida focuses in on questions of force, right, justice, and philosophical interpretations of the limits between man and animal.

This collection tells the story of the case study genre at a time when it became the genre par excellence for discussing human sexuality across the humanities and life sciences.It is a transcontinental journey from the imperial world of fin-de-siècle Central Europe to the interwar metropolises of Weimar Germany and to the United States of America in the post-war years. Foregrounding the figures of case study pioneers, and highlighting their often radical engagements with the genre, the book scrutinises the case writing practices of Sigmund Freud and his predecessor sexologist Richard von Krafft-Ebing; writers including Leopold von Sacher-Masoch and Alfred Döblin; Weimar intellectuals such as Erich Wulffen and psychoanalyst Viola Bernard. The results are important new insights into the continuing legacy of such writers and into the agency increasingly claimed by the readerships that emerged with the development of modernity.
