Excerpt from The Quatrains of Abu'l-Ala: Selected From His "Lozum-Ma-La-Yalzam" And "Sact-Uz-Zind" And Now First Translated Into English N hen all Europe was arming itself for the first crusade, when the Northmen were ravaging the western world with their marauding expeditions, When the Califs were engaged in bloody battle with their rebel lious subjects, abu'l-ala was waging his silent and bloodless war on the follies and evils of his age. He attacked the superstitions and the false' traditions of religions, and proclaimed the supremacy of the mind; he hurled his trenchant invectives at the tyranny and despot ism of rulers, and asserted the supremacy of the human soul; he stood for perfect equality, and fought against the fallacies, the Shams and the lies of the ruling class of his time, in its social, religious and political aspects.

Daily Warm-Up Exercises for Jazz Ensemble was written as a series of studies to aid the jazz group in performance. It is published in two volumes, Volume I for the young or beginning ensemble, and Volume II for the more advanced group. All musical groups need a short period of time during the beginning of a rehearsal to reacquaint their body functions with the needs of making music. Even though individuals warm-up by themselves in preparation for performance, the group as a whole needs to experience basic musical qualities -- blend, balance, precision, intonation -- together to ensure good ensemble performance. Hopefully, this series will provide the jazz ensemble with materials organized in a logical manner to accomplish these goals.

Matlab Tutorial For Ece Students And Engineers

This book combines the teaching of the MATLAB programming language with the presentation and development of carefully selected electrical and computer engineering (ECE) fundamentals. This is what distinguishes it from other books concerned with MATLAB: it is directed specifically to ECE concerns. Students will see, quite explicitly, how and why MATLAB is well suited to solve practical ECE problems. This book is intended primarily for the freshman or sophomore ECE major who has no programming experience, no background in EE or CE, and is required to learn MATLAB programming. It can be used for a course about MATLAB or an introduction to electrical and computer engineering, where learning MATLAB programming is strongly emphasized. A first course in calculus, usually taken concurrently, is essential. The distinguishing feature of this book is that about 15% of this MATLAB book develops ECE fundamentals gradually, from very basic principles. Because these fundamentals are interwoven throughout, MATLAB can be applied to solve relevant, practical problems. The plentiful, in-depth example problems to which MATLAB is applied were carefully chosen so that results obtained with MATLAB also provide insights about the fundamentals. With this "feedback approach" to learning MATLAB, ECE students also gain a head start in learning some core subjects in the EE and CE curricula. There are nearly 200 examples and over 80 programs that demonstrate how solutions of practical problems can be obtained with MATLAB. After using this book, the ECE student will be well prepared to apply MATLAB in all coursework that is commonly included in EE and CE curricula.

There are few events as central to the American historical consciousness as the Civil War, which is a fascinating area of interest for students and general readers alike. One of the most efficient ways to study a war is with an atlas; however, most of the atlases devoted to this period focus almost exclusively on military movements and are prohibitively expensive for use in undergraduate courses. Offering a striking and reasonably priced alternative to these books, the Concise Historical Atlas of the U.S. Civil War is the only atlas that includes data maps and covers key issues before and after the war years. It balances military and non-military coverage, presenting maps that deal with political and social changes as well as campaign and battle maps. Laid out chronologically and representing the complexity of the war both visually and textually, Concise Historical Atlas of the U.S. Civil War is an ideal study aid. Through detailed presentation of physical geography, it highlights the role of the landscape in troop movements and in social and demographic developments. Students can follow all the major campaigns of both the eastern and western theaters, examine the tactical movements in the major battles, and explore the geographic patterns behind issues like emancipation, occupation, and internal conflicts. The atlas features maps dealing with such subjects as economic capacity (both agricultural and industrial), enlistment rates, and the movement of escaped slaves. The maps also integrate information on the divisions that existed within the North and the South themselves. Accessible to students with limited geographic knowledge, the maps are clearly labeled, with key features marked. Each map is accompanied by a short narrative that provides helpful contextual information. Featuring uniquely comprehensive coverage, the Concise Historical Atlas of the U.S. Civil War includes several maps situating the conflict in its antebellum origins as well as maps--of politics, sharecropping, and race relations--that extend the story through the end of Reconstruction. Ideal for use in U.S. Civil War History, Civil War and Reconstruction, and Southern History courses, this volume offers both novice and more experienced students new perspectives on the most significant events and circumstances of the era.

Of the many themes that Classical Antiquity and Early Christianity had in common, for all their profound differences, none was more influential than their love of language. It was the Greek and Roman rhetorical theorists who called the attention of later generations to the importance of speech and language. Likewise, when the author of the Fourth Gospel needed a comprehensive metaphor to describe the eternal significance of Jesus Christ, he turned to speech, calling him the Logos -- the Word and Reason of God, through whom the universe was made and by whom it was upheld. What would happen when these two systems of interpreting persuasive language collided -- and yet in some sense converged? To answer that question, this book examines three interpretations of the most universally acknowledged piece of rhetoric in the history of the West, the Sermon on the Mount: from the Latin and Catholic tradition (St Augustine), the Greek and Orthodox tradition (St John Chrysostom), and the Reformation and Protestant tradition (Martin Luther). Each is acknowledged in his tradition as a "prince of the pulpit." Together and yet separately, they illuminate both the Sermon and the Speaker for anyone who still takes the challenge of the faith -- and of language -- seriously.
