The New York Times bestselling account of one of history's most brutal -- and forgotten -- massacres, when the Japanese army destroyed China's capital city on the eve of World War II In December , one of the most horrific atrocities in the long annals of wartime barbarity occurred.
The Japanese army swept into the ancient city of Nanking what was then the capital of China , and within weeks, more than , Chinese civilians and soldiers were systematically raped, tortured, and murdered. In this seminal work, Iris Chang, whose own grandparents barely escaped the massacre, tells this history from three perspectives: that of the Japanese soldiers, that of the Chinese, and that of a group of Westerners who refused to abandon the city and created a safety zone, which saved almost , Chinese.
Drawing on extensive interviews with survivors and documents brought to light for the first time, Iris Chang's classic book is the definitive history of this horrifying episode. From the beautiful apsaras of Hindu myth to the swan maidens of European fairy tales, stories of flying women - some carried by wings, others by clouds, rainbows, floating scarves, and flying horses - reveal the perennial fascination with and ambivalence about female power and sexuality. In Women Who Fly, Serinity Young examines the motif of the flying woman as it appears in a wide variety of cultures and historical periods, in legends, myths, rituals, sacred narratives, and artistic productions.
She considers supernatural women like the Valkyries of Norse legend, who transport men to immortality; winged deities like the Greek goddesses Iris and Nike; figures of terror like the Furies, witches, and succubi; airborne Christian mystics; and wayward, dangerous women like Lilith and Morgan le Fay. Looking beyond the supernatural, Young examines the modern mythology surrounding 20th-century female aviators like Amelia Earhart and Hanna Reitsch.
The first book to systematically chronicle the figure of the flying woman in myth, literature, art, and pop culture, Women Who Fly offers a fresh look at the ways in which women have both influenced and been understood by society and religious traditions throughout the ages and around the world.

For two decades or more in the humanities, various political arguments have been put forward against beauty: that it distracts us from more important issues; that it is the handmaiden of privilege; and that it masks political interests. In On Beauty and Being Just Elaine Scarry not only defends beauty from the political arguments against it but also argues that beauty does indeed press us toward a greater concern for justice. Taking inspiration from writers and thinkers as diverse as Homer, Plato, Marcel Proust, Simone Weil, and Iris Murdoch as well as her own experiences, Scarry offers up an elegant, passionate manifesto for the revival of beauty in our intellectual work as well as our homes, museums, and classrooms.
Scarry argues that our responses to beauty are perceptual events of profound significance for the individual and for society. Presenting us with a rare and exceptional opportunity to witness fairness, beauty assists us in our attention to justice. The beautiful object renders fairness, an abstract concept, concrete by making it directly available to our sensory perceptions.
With its direct appeal to the senses, beauty stops us, transfixes us, fills us with a "surfeit of aliveness. Scarry, author of the landmark The Body in Pain and one of our bravest and most creative thinkers, offers us here philosophical critique written with clarity and conviction as well as a passionate plea that we change the way we think about beauty.

Sterilization remains one of the most popular forms of fertility control in the world, but it has received little acknowledgment for decreasing birthrates on account of its dubious use as a means of population control, especially in developing countries. In Matters of Choice, Iris Lopez presents a comprehensive analysis of the dichotomous views that have portrayed sterilization either as part of a coercive program of population control or as a means of voluntary, even liberating, fertility control by individual women.
Drawing upon her twenty-five years of research on sterilized Puerto Rican women from five different families in Brooklyn, Lopez untangles the interplay between how women make fertility decisions and their social, economic, cultural, and historical constraints. Weaving together the voices of these women, she covers the history of sterilization and eugenics, societal pressures to have fewer children, a lack of adequate health care, patterns of gender inequality, and misinformation provided by doctors and family members.

Approximately one out of every 10 women has endometriosis, an inflammatory disease that causes chronic pain, limits life's activities, and may lead to infertility.

From the glittering courts of Elizabethan England to the storm-tossed cliffs of the Scottish Highlands comes a dazzling tale of seduction, danger, and desire by one of America's bestselling and beloved authors, Iris Johansen.

When Princess Kathryn Kentyre is snatched from a life of captivity by the mysterious Black Robert of Craighdu, she is torn between absolute terror and soaring hope, He had been chosen to protect her from the dangers surrounding her, yet the moment he swept her away she knew this rogue of a Scottish laird would prove a greater threat than any she faced from her enemies.
He was a warrior-chief torn between duty and desire. Sensuous as sin itself and wild as his native Scottish Highlands, Robert MacDarren had no intention of settling down with one woman. Yet the agreement he'd struck to keep the peace required he marry the orphaned beauty and bring her back to his castle at Craigdhu for safekeeping.

Iris never expected to live her life trapped on land. Nor was she prepared for what she would find there. A siren isn't supposed to fall in love with her prey. When Jace moved to Santa Cruz, he never imagined he'd risk his life to protect a monster. He soon finds that ancient myth has become reality. And not every pretty face is what it seems. After Iris sings her siren's song to Jace -- a hypnotic melody that leads men to death beneath the waves -- both of their worlds are turned upside down.
Will Iris give in to her bloodlust or will she turn her back on everything she's ever known? Two professors return to the Urbana campus after a year's sojourn in Europe.

A series of faculty meetings were held in the early spring of out of which emerged changes and a certain relaxation of former requirements.
As an example, incoming freshmen are no longer required to complete their foreign language as early as possible. They may now postpone embarking on their college-level foreign language study to suit their convenience as long as they complete the requirement by the end of their I4. Another loosening of former requirements has been the decision to permit students to interrupt their sequence of language courses at their own option. Formerly, students were not permitted to do so except under very special circumstances. Departments have been requested to provide alternate tracks to suit individual student needs instead of the now-existing uni- form l;th-semester courses.
Suggested options are such diverse courses or sets of courses as conversation courses, specialized technical or scientific reading courses, literary reading courses, culture and civilization courses, etc. In some cases the option suggested is that the readings be in the foreign language, but the discussion be in English. Needless to say, most of the foreign language departments are now in the process of reevaluating their l;th-semester offerings and preparing new ones. Some, like the French Dept.

The play raised critical issues when first performed and today is not only valid, but peculiarly appropriate to moral problems that the youth of America is so involved with.

A placement bureau for members, previously operated from the campus of the Univ.
This gathering of the bureaus into the headquarters should make for a much more efficient operation. The French Review , the official publication of the association, will continue to be edited on the campus of the Univ. The president of the association is Prof. David Daugherty of the Univ. Prof Nachtmann' s term of office as executive secretary is for 3 years. Nachtmann has been a member of the French Dept. In his new position he will be half-time teaching in the French Dept.
