A World of Words

A World of Words offers a new look at the degree to which language itself is a topic of Poe's texts. Stressing the ways his fiction reflects on the nature of its own signifying practices, Williams sheds new light on such issues as Poe's characterization of the relationship between author and reader as a struggle for authority, on his awareness of the displacement of an "authorial writing self" by a "self as it is written," and on his debunking of the redemptive properties of the romantic symbol.

Empire for Liberty

How would your organisation cope with a cyber attack? Pinpoint and close vulnerabilities using effective computer forensics! The primary purpose of computer forensics is to enable organisations to pinpoint where the malware has infected their computer systems and which files have been infected, so that they can close the vulnerability. More and more organisations have realised that they need to acquire a forensic capability to ensure they are ready to cope with an information security incident. This pocket guide illustrates the technical complexities involved in computer forensics, and shows managers what makes the discipline relevant to their organisation. For technical staff, the book offers an invaluable insight into the key processes and procedures that are required. Benefits to business include: * Defend your company effectively against attacks By developing a computer forensic capability, your organisation will be better prepared to defend itself in the event of a cyber attack. Surveys of the threat landscape have indicated a significant upswing of insider activity. Forensics within the organisation can be used to identify possible insider misuse of systems or information. In addition, this pocket guide looks at how you can optimise your IT infrastructure so as to enhance the efficiency of incident analysis. This will also minimise the operational impact on your computer systems in the event that a forensic analysis is required. * Be proactive Being proactive does not just mean making sure your organisation_s IT infrastructure is one that can support forensic analysis of incidents. Forensics is now no longer merely a tool to identify what has gone wrong: it can also be used as a mechanism for alerting you to the fact that something has gone wrong. Being proactive therefore implies stepping up your organisation_s ability to detect attacks. Detection of attacks is an extremely useful attribute for your organisation to have: the sooner you know about the problem, the sooner you can begin to deal with it. * Secure evidence that will stand up in court Undertaking forensics is not a simple task. It is not always possible to understand the true consequences of insider misuse until after completion of the investigation. Once the extent of the damage becomes clear, you may want to exercise the option of taking legal action against the perpetrator. This means that it is essential for you to follow correct procedure, so as to safeguard any evidence gathered. This book explains the key steps you need to take to maintain the integrity of the investigation and preserve the evidence. * Counter encryption Encryption is a double-edged sword. Encryption has a legitimate purpose as a tool deployed by information security professionals. However, the opportunity to conceal data has obvious attractions for the criminal, meaning that encryption is also a technique widely used by hackers. This book looks at how encryption is used to impede a forensic investigation, and examines ways of solving the problem. The most effective tactic for countering encryption is to locate the key material and crack the password that protects it, using a password cracker such as Cain & Abel. Tools, techniques and procedures The underground economy makes millions of pounds a year from cybercrime. Because no system or network can be completely secure, any sensible organisation will have mechanisms in place in advance to deal with the consequences of a cyber attack. Digital forensics assists companies and public sector organisations to identify how and where their computer systems have been abused. The purpose of this pocket guide is to provide an introduction to the tools, techniques and procedures utilised within computer forensics. It is an easy to understand, introductory text, which gives an overview of the digital forensics domain, discussing procedural, technical and human-related aspects, without confiusing readers with technical jargon.

Transcendental Wordplay

America's Romantic Punsters and the Search for the Language of Nature ... and Queries AQ American Quarterly ATQ American Transcendental Quarterly BNYPL ...

Transcendental Wordplay

Throughout the first half of the nineteenth century, America was captivated by a muddled notion of "etymology." New England Transcendentalism was only one outcropping of a nationwide movement in which schoolmasters across small-town America taught students the roots of words in ways that dramatized religious issues and sparked wordplay. Shaped by this ferment, our major romantic authors shared the sensibility that Friedrich Schlegel linked to punning and christened "romantic irony." Notable punsters or etymologists all, they gleefully set up as sages, creating jocular masterpieces from their zest for oracular wordplay. Their search for a primal language lurking beneath all natural languages provided them with something like a secret language that encodes their meanings. To fathom their essentially comic masterpieces we must decipher it. Interpreting Thoreau as an ironic moralist, satirist, and social critic rather than a nature-loving mystic, Transcendental Wordplay suggests that the major American Romantics shared a surprising conservatism. In this award-winning study, Professor West rescues the pun from critical contempt and allows readers to enjoy it as a serious form of American humor.

American Transcendentalism and Asian Religions

The first major study since the 1930s of the relationship between American Transcendentalism and Asian religions, and the first comprehensive work to include post-Civil War Transcendentalists like Samuel Johnson, this book is encyclopedic in scope. Beginning with the inception of Transcendentalist Orientalism in Europe, Versluis covers the entire history of American Transcendentalism into the twentieth century, and the profound influence of Orientalism on the movement--including its analogues and influences in world religious dialogue. He examines what he calls "positive Orientalism," which recognizes the value and perennial truths in Asian religions and cultures, not only in the writings of major figures like Thoreau and Emerson, but also in contemporary popular magazines. Versluis's exploration of the impact of Transcendentalism on the twentieth-century study of comparative religions has ramifications for the study of religious history, comparative religion, literature, politics, history, and art history.

Walden

150th Anniversary Illustrated Edition of the American Classic Henry David Thoreau ... American Transcendental Quarterly 24 (1974), 22-5. Burroughs, John.

Walden

Henry David Thoreau was just a few days short of his twenty-eighth birthday when he built a cabin on the shore of Walden Pond and began one of the most famous experiments in living in American history. Originally he was not, apparently, intending to write a book about his life at the pond, but nine years later, in August of 1854, Houghton Mifflin's predecessor, Ticknor and Fields, published Walden; or, a Life in the Woods. At the time the book was largely ignored, and it took five years to sell out the first printing of two thousand copies. It was not until 1862, the year of Thoreau's death, that the book was brought back into print. Since then It has never been out of print. Published in hundreds of editions and translated into virtually every modern language, it has become one of the most widely read and influential books ever written, not only in this country but throughout the world. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt is proud to present the most beautiful edition ever published of Thoreau's masterpiece. This new edition features spectacular color photographs by Scot Miller that capture Walden as vividly as Thoreau's words do. The book is being published in association with the Walden Woods Project, which is dedicated to preserving the lands Thoreau wrote about. For each copy sold, Houghton Mifflin and Scot Miller are making a donation to the Walden Woods Project.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Emerson scholarship has been particularly productive in the last couple of decades.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Emerson scholarship has been particularly productive in the last couple of decades. At the same time, however, bibliographies have been slow in catching up with this development. Only few selective checklists cover modern criticism on Emerson, none of them going beyond the seventies. It is the object of the present bibliography to document all Emerson criticism of the twentiehth century up to the mid-eighties.

Gender  Race  and American Science Fiction

This book focuses on the interplay of gender, race, and their representation in American science fiction, from the nineteenth-century through to the twenty-first, and across a number of forms including literature and film. Haslam explores the reasons why SF provides such a rich medium for both the preservation of and challenges to dominant mythologies of gender and race. Defining SF linguistically and culturally, the study argues that this mode is not only able to illuminate the cultural and social histories of gender and race, but so too can it intervene in those histories, and highlight the ruptures present within them. The volume moves between material history and the linguistic nature of SF fantasies, from the specifics of race and gender at different points in American history to larger analyses of the socio-cultural functions of such identity categories. SF has already become central to discussions of humanity in the global capitalist age, and is increasingly the focus of feminist and critical race studies; in combining these earlier approaches, this book goes further, to demonstrate why SF must become central to our discussions of identity writ large, of the possibilities and failings of the human —past, present, and future. Focusing on the interplay of whiteness and its various 'others' in relation to competing gender constructs, chapters analyze works by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Mary E. Bradley Lane, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Philip Francis Nowlan, George S. Schuyler and the Wachowskis, Frank Herbert, William Gibson, and Octavia Butler. Academics and students interested in the study of Science Fiction, American literature and culture, and Whiteness Studies, as well as those engaged in critical gender and race studies, will find this volume invaluable.
