Art is always a product of cultural evolution, and The History and Spirit of Chinese Art looks at this universal process as it unfolded in ancient China. With “mountain-water” landscape paintings, works of classical Chinese calligraphy, and blue and white porcelain widely displayed in museums and fetching high prices in auction houses worldwide, Chinese art is no longer foreign to the Western world. However, to many, the making of such cultural artefacts remains an enigmatic process. Indeed, Chinese art, the product of such an old civilization, was shaped by an ongoing process of evolution along the ebbs and flows of China’s history as a nation. In The History and Spirit of Chinese Art, aesthetics expert Zhang Fa deciphers the philosophies and thoughts that have defined Chinese art since the very beginning of the Chinese civilization, moving through the dynastic landmarks of artistic development with discussions of numerous art forms including paintings, architecture, dance and music, calligraphy, and literature.

"The meaning of life is the most urgent of questions," said the existentiallist thinker Albert Camus. And no less a philosopher than Woody Allen has wondered:"How is it possible to find meaning in a finite world, given my waist and shirt size?" "Movies and the Meaning of Life" looks at popular and cult movies, examining their assumptions and insights on meaning-of-life questions: What is reality and how can I know it? (The Truman Show, Contact, Waking Life); How do I find myself and my true identity? (Fight Club, Being John Malkovich, Boys Don't Cry, Memento); How do I find meaning from my interactions with others? (Pulp Fiction, Shadowlands, Chasing Amy); What is the chief purpose in life? (American Beauty, Life is Beautiful, The Shawshank Redemption); and How ought I live my life? (Pleasantville, Spiderman, Minority Report, Groundhog Day).

Traditional Sun Style Tai-Chi: Instructional Handbook - Volume I (Postures 1-25). This book was written by Madam Sun Jian-Yun (1913-2003), daughter of Grandmaster Sun Lu-T'ang (1861-1933), and first published in 1957 under the title 'Sun Tai-Chi Boxing.' Madam Sun's book was small, yet provided invaluable instruction on how to practice each of the 95 postures in the form according to the direct teachings of her father. In time she had intended to significantly enlarge this book but instead decided that her students should use her small book as a reference guide to which she would add to orally in classes that she taught over many decades. The original book and much of the oral information that is translated and chronicled in this book is a result of Bradford Tyrey's years of studying in China with Madam Sun from 1984 until her passing in 2003. It is necessary to separate her book into volumes because of the vast amount of material she imparted from her father and elder Sun family members. Volume I covers Postures 1-25, each successive volume addressing the next group of postures. Volume I is the first of five highly detailed volumes regarding the 95 posture form taught in 1957 by Madam Sun on traditional Sun Family style Tai-Chi Boxing (Taijiquan). This instructional handbook, Volume I: Postures 1-25, has over 130 pages of comprehensive information directly from Madam Sun and Sun family elders, and more than 100 photos and drawings that will assist in the learning of postures and veiled practices within each. It should be noted that the instructional photos of Madam Sun demonstrating each posture in 1957 are grainy, but are usable for reference. Contents in this book include: Foundation Principles to follow in Sun Tai-Chi, the Chinese text on each posture, individual Chinese character translation from the original text to help in the self-study of postures one-by-one, and special explanations from Madam Sun concerning her father's meaning of Chinese characters providing the reader with a complete and accurate translation. Also, the meaning of each posture is given along with Madam Sun's clarifications on the practice of each posture, plus many of Bradford's class notes, the Four Animal Resemblances in Sun Tai-Chi, and much more, all being genuine additions to the study of traditional Sun Style Tai-Chi.
