Designing For The Movies from the Author: Laurence Irving. Laurence Irving came from a prominent British theatrical family, the grandson of the legendary Sir Henry Irving and son of actors H. B. Irving and Dorothea Baird. Unlike his forebears, however, Laurence chose not to enter the acting profession but gained an international reputation as an artist, set designer, and art director. In these memoirs, Irving vividly recounts working in Hollywood for such distinguished figures as Mary Pickford, Charlie Chaplin, and William Cameron Menzies. Upon his return to the United Kingdom, he worked on such notable films as Moonlight Sonata and George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion. Irving's time in Hollywood marked the end of the silent film years, and these memoirs depict the effect on the industry, with astute and penetrating portraits of those who felt the change dramatically. Anyone with even the slightest interest in the history of filmmaking and its early characters will not want to miss this insightful account.

Defending Constantine from the Author: Peter J. Leithart. Leithart reads the original ancient, the seminal secondary, and lots of other sources to contend that Constantine was a believer and a conciliator who sought theological agreement for the political stability it brought. Contra the influential interpretation of Anabaptist theologian John Howard Yoder, Leithart maintains that when Constantine is understood in historical context, his disestablishment of pagan religion opens a place for a Christian understanding of sacrifice and of the significance of the kingdom of God.--From publisher description

Deep Down True from the Author: Juliette Fay. From the author of Shelter Me--a funny and poignant novel about having your heart in the right place. Newly divorced Dana Stellgarten has always been unfailingly nice- even to telemarketers-but now her temper is wearing thin. Money is tight, her kids are reeling from their dad's departure, and her Goth teenage niece has just landed on her doorstep. As she enters the slipstream of post-divorce romance and is befriended by the town queen bee, Dana finds that the tension between being true to yourself and being liked doesn't end in middle school... and that sometimes it takes a real friend to help you embrace adulthood in all its flawed complexity.

Deconstruction And Translation from the Author: Kathleen Davis. Deconstruction and Translation explains ways in which many practical and theoretical problems of translation can be rethought in the light of insights from the French philosopher Jacques Derrida. If there is no one origin, no transcendent meaning, and thus no stable source text, we can no longer talk of translation as meaning transfer or as passive reproduction. Kathleen Davis instead refers to the translator's freedom and individual responsibility. Her survey of this complex field begins from an analysis of the proper name as a model for the problem of signification and explains revised concepts of limits, singularity, generality, definitions of text, writing, iterability, meaning and intention. The implications for translation theory are then elaborated, complicating the desire for translatability and incorporating sharp critique of linguistic and communicative approaches to translation. The practical import of this approach is shown in analyses of the ways Derrida has been translated into English. In all, the text offers orientation and guidance through some of the most conceptually demanding and rewarding fields of contemporary translation theory.
