Karielle, born of humble circumstances, finds early in life that she is different. She can do things others can't. Her family thinks she is only fantasizing. One day, Nathan, Kari's half brother, left to care for her and the animals, a task he hates, taunts Kari until she runs away. Traveling much farther than she ever had before, she trips on the muddy path, spraining an ankle. A large wolf, Worg, finds her, changing Karielle's life forever. Worg leads Karielle to the hut of the sorceress Gretchen who discovers her gift of magic. Gretchen, also a healer, begins training Kari. She loves learning magical skills, and the use of healing herbs. Kari even heals the twisted legs of a young man of the village. Karielle had never known her real father. His relationship with her mother had been very short. Rolgrin Hawke, a powerful wizard, discovers her and comes to the village where she lives to see if she is his child. Therein lies the adventure.

Using a broad, comparative approach, this study shows how the figure of the gift structures poetic discourse and does so from the age of Homer up through twenty-first century conceptual poetics. Beginning from a new interpretation of Derrida’s writings on the gift, Adam R. Rosenthal argues that this ambivalent figure names at one and the same time poetry’s most extreme aneconomic privilege and the point of its closest contact with the interested exchange of the market. In this way, the gift conducts material relays of patronage and theories of poetic origination, in genius, inspiration, and imagination. Poetics and the Gift capitalizes on this double function in order to read material historical accounts of poetry alongside philosophical and poetic ones. By way of his original reading of Derrida’s work in Given Time and ‘Economimesis’, Rosenthal offers a novel account of ‘gift poetics’ and a new understanding of what makes poetry ‘poetry’.

This book is an anthropological investigation into the different forms the economy assumes, and the different purposes it serves, when conceived from the perspective of Islamic micro-finance as a field of everyday practice. It is based on long-term ethnographic research in Java, Indonesia, with Islamic foundations active in managing zakat and other charitable funds, for purposes of poverty alleviation. The book explores the social foundations of contemporary Islamic practices that strive to encompass the economic within an expanded domain of divine worship and elucidates the effects such encompassment has on time, its fissure and synthesis. In order to elaborate on the question of time, the book looks beyond anthropology and Islamic studies, engaging attentively, critically and productively with the post-structuralist work of G. Deleuze, M. Foucault and J. Derrida, three of the most important figures of the temporal turn in contemporary philosophy.

As a parent, you already know that your child has many gifts. What you may not know is that attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) related symptoms—the very qualities that lead him or her to act out and distract others—may be among them. This second edition of The Gift of ADHD includes compelling new research indicating that the impulses that lead your child to act exuberantly may correspond with unusual levels of creativity and a heightened capacity for insight into the feelings and emotions of others. Could it be that ADHD is not a hindrance, but an asset in our fast-paced digital age? ADHD expert Lara Honos-Webb presents the evidence for this revolutionary concept and explains how you can help your child develop control over inattentive, hyperactive behavior and enhance the five gifts of ADHD: creativity, attunement to nature, interpersonal intuition, energetic enthusiasm, and emotional sensitivity. Filled with easy skill-building activities you and your child can do together, this book will help your child transform problematic symptoms into strengths, then build the self-esteem they need to let those gifts shine.

This is volume II of “Coral Gardens and Their Magic”, dealing with Kilivila terms related to gardening and agriculture. Kilivila is the language spoken on the Trobriand islands, a group of islands off the east cost of New Guinea. This volume will appeal to those with an interest in anthropology and Trobriand culture, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: “Language as Tool, Document, and Cultural Reality”, “The Translation of Untranslatable words”, “The Context of Words and the Context of Facts”, “Th e Pragmatic Setting of Utterances”, “Meaning as Function of Words”, “The Sources of Meaning in the Speech of Infants”, “Gaps, Gluts and Vagaries of a Native Terminology”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
