The Virgin Mary in Late Medieval and Early Modern English Literature and Popular Culture

This book was first published in 2011. The Virgin Mary was one of the most powerful images of the Middle Ages, central to people's experience of Christianity. During the Reformation, however, many images of the Virgin were destroyed, as Protestantism rejected the way the medieval Church over-valued and sexualized Mary. Although increasingly marginalized in Protestant thought and practice, her traces and surprising transformations continued to haunt early modern England. Combining historical analysis and contemporary theory, including issues raised by psychoanalysis and feminist theology, Gary Waller examines the literature, theology and popular culture associated with Mary in the transition between late medieval and early modern England. He contrasts a variety of pre-Reformation texts and events, including popular mariology, poetry, tales, drama, pilgrimage and the emerging 'New Learning', with later sixteenth-century ruins, songs, ballads, Petrarchan poetry, the works of Shakespeare and other texts where the Virgin's presence or influence, sometimes surprisingly, can be found.

The Death of Osama Bin Laden - An Alternative History

Finished in 2003, this fictional memoir is written from the point of view of an Al-Qaeda fighter and details his personal involvement in a jihad, holy war, against the western powers. The story is told in 2007, as the narrator remembers his 20 years of conflict. Osama bin Laden is involved throughout the story and, while the period from mid-2003 to 2007 is entirely speculative, chapters detailing the formation and development of Al-Qaeda are accurate and based on extensive research. Quotations from The Qur'an are sourced from 'The Meaning of the Glorious Qur'an', an explanatory translation by Mohammad Marmaduke Pickthall, published by the Islamic Cultural Centre, London NW8 7RG. Proclamations and declarations by Al-Qaeda leaders in quotation marks are real. For clarity, dates are given in the western calendar.

Teachers are urged to ask themselves such questions as: What is the main goal of teaching? What is the most important purpose of education? What do I expect my students to eventually become?

An Ecological Perspective on Human Communication Theory

AN ECOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE ON HUMAN COMMUNICATION THEORY introduces communication students to both research and theory at an undergraduate level and avoids extensive discussion of philosophical and epistemological issues.

history of the study of communication processes and patterns. In Chapters 1 and
2 our concern is with placing communication within ecological boundaries,
highlighting the role of communication in our survival as a species, and
discussing the role of communication in our everyday lives. Further, we define
