All Arabs know the Stories of Juha. Elusive character, multi-faceted, who appears everywhere and at any time. He is not a jester, nor the village idiot. He is innocent or wise, according to the situations. Juha stories discuss people's behavior and how they deal with different topics and situations, and Juha deals with it with a kind of wit and lightness.

All Arabs know the Stories of Juha. Elusive character, multi-faceted, who appears everywhere and at any time. He is not a jester, nor the village idiot. He is innocent or wise, according to the situations. Sometimes irreverent, but at the same time falsely simple minded. He is the ultimate antihero, shifted from his time, from social conventions and from common sense. He is the incarnation of fake ingenuity and subversive absurdity. These 48 stories are an excellent material for the class. One can try to compare them with European literature (Don Quixote and his valet Sancho, Till the mischievous, Renart, or even Guignol, Polichinelle...) or to explain why a western mind can't laugh at some of them, or on the contrary a universal dimension of comic is evident in some others. With free online recordings.

Short fiction was an immensely innovative art in the medieval Arab world and speaks to the urbanization of the Arab domain after Islam. It reflects the bustling life of Muslim Arabs and Islamized Persians and the sure stamp of an urbanity that had settled very staunchly after big conquests. Reading these texts today illuminates the wide spectrum of early Arab life and the influences and innovations that flourished so vibrantly in medieval Arab society. Classical Arabic Stories selects from an impressive corpus, including excerpts from seven seminal works: Ibn Tufail's novel, Hayy ibn Yaqzan; Kalila wa Dimna by Ibn al-Muqaffa; The Misers by al-Jahiz; The Brethren of Purity's The Protest of Animals Against Man; Al-Maqamat (The Assemblies) by al-Hamadhani and al-Hariri; Epistle of Forgiveness by al-Ma'arri; and the epic romance, Sayf Bin Dhi Yazan. Organized thematically, the volume begins with pre-Islamic tales, stories of rulers and other notables, and thrilling narratives of danger and warfare. It follows with tales of love, religion, comedy, and the strange and the supernatural.

“We need better approaches to understanding and managing software requirements, and Dean provides them in this book. He draws ideas from three very useful intellectual pools: classical management practices, Agile methods, and lean product development. By combining the strengths of these three approaches, he has produced something that works better than any one in isolation.” –From the Foreword by Don Reinertsen, President of Reinertsen & Associates; author of Managing the Design Factory; and leading expert on rapid product development Effective requirements discovery and analysis is a critical best practice for serious application development. Until now, however, requirements and Agile methods have rarely coexisted peacefully. For many enterprises considering Agile approaches, the absence of effective and scalable Agile requirements processes has been a showstopper for Agile adoption. In Agile Software Requirements, Dean Leffingwell shows exactly how to create effective requirements in Agile environments. Part I presents the “big picture” of Agile requirements in the enterprise, and describes an overall process model for Agile requirements at the project team, program, and portfolio levels Part II describes a simple and lightweight, yet comprehensive model that Agile project teams can use to manage requirements Part III shows how to develop Agile requirements for complex systems that require the cooperation of multiple teams Part IV guides enterprises in developing Agile requirements for ever-larger “systems of systems,” application suites, and product portfolios This book will help you leverage the benefits of Agile without sacrificing the value of effective requirements discovery and analysis. You’ll find proven solutions you can apply right now–whether you’re a software developer or tester, executive, project/program manager, architect, or team leader.

In one of those bars, in the town of Eureka, in the middle of a spring day when the light runs sweet seven people meet: Cookie, a cowgirl and fry-cook; Chiara, a professor on the run; her sixteen-year-old saucy daughter Izzy; the painter, Renato. There is also Juha, a contractor strong as a horse, but blushingly shy; Muscovado, a Jamaican journalist; and Ananda, a securities attorney - blond, logical, delicious. They meet as is inevitable. And so tasty is the whisky, so compelling the twilight, they band together for a journey to the legendary Lost Coast of northern California. Like all such trips, it is not just a moving through the gift-giving wilderness, not just a series of visits to remote settlements; it is also a journey of the soul. Delightful and entertaining, The Lost Coast is a sexy and highly literate novel that has attracted critical acclaim.

Much of the lively and often heated debate on the role of women in Islam and Middle Eastern society is grounded in different readings of the primary sources and historical precedents. But despite the increasing importance of this debate, these key texts have remained inaccessible to English-speaking readers. This book fills the gap by collecting extracts from a range of sources dating from the early Islamic period until today. The readings cover various aspects of women's experience--legal, domestic, political, religious and cultural. They are accompanied by introductions that explain the background of each source and discuss some of the questions it raises, while bibliographies direct readers to additional material.

Obeyd-e Zakani, who died in 1372 is among the great poets of Iran but little known in the West. This selection of his work is the first to be translated into English. Obeyd was a remarkable satirist and social critic who looked upon his world of extravagant indulgence and corruption with the censorious eyes of a Juvenal, and portrayed it with the cynicism and wit of a Voltaire, and the hilarious grotesqueness of a Rabelais. He used scathing stories and sardonic maxims to paint a world full of deceit, greed, lust, sycophancy, and perversion, where old values and virtues were scorned and extremes of wealth and poverty, violence and bloodshed were the order of the day.

The Cinema Of Aki Kaurism Ki

Aki Kaurismäki is an enigma, an eminent auteur who claims his films are a joke. Since 1983, Kaurismäki has produced classically-styled films filled with cinephilic references to film history. He has earned an international art-house audience and many prizes, influencing such directors as Jim Jarmusch, Quentin Tarantino, and Wes Anderson. Yet Kaurismäki is often depicted as the loneliest, most nostalgic of Finns (except when he promotes his films, makes political statements, and runs his many businesses). He is also depicted as a bohemian known for outlandish actions and statements. The Cinema of Aki Kaurismäki is the first comprehensive English-language study of this eccentric director. Drawing on revisionist approaches to film authorship, the text links the filmmaker and his films to the stories and issues animating film aesthetics and history, nostalgia, late modernity, politics, commerce, film festivals, and national cinema.
