Finster, mysteriös, elektrisierend Revival erzählt die Geschichte des Jungen Jamie und des Predigers Charles Jacobs, deren Wege sich von den Sechzigern bis heute auf unglückselige Weise immer wieder kreuzen. Sie steuert auf ein beängstigendes, auswegloses Ende zu, wie es selbst Stephen King bislang nicht zu Papier gebracht hat, und ist gleichzeitig Abrechnung mit dem Religionsfanatismus in unserem hoch technisierten Zeitalter und Verbeugung vor den Größen des klassischen Horrors. Der kleine Jamie spielt vor dem Haus mit seinen Plastiksoldaten, da schiebt sich ein dunkler Schatten über ihn, ein Schatten, den er sein Leben lang nicht loswerden wird. Er blickt auf und sieht Charles Jacobs über sich, den jungen Methodistenprediger, der in der neuenglischen Gemeinde gerade sein Amt antritt. Im Nu gewinnt der charismatische Jacobs die Herzen der gottesfürchtigen Einwohner. Den Kindern haben es vor allem die elektrischen Spielereien angetan, mit denen er Bibelgeschichten veranschaulicht. Das alles endet, als ihn ein entsetzlicher Unfall vom Glauben abfallen lässt und er eine letzte Predigt hält, die in einer rasenden Gottverfluchung gipfelt. Von der Gemeinde verstoßen, tingelt er fortan über die Jahrmärkte, wo er elektrische Experimente vorführt, die zunehmend spektakulärer werden. Und immer schrecklichere Folgen nach sich ziehen. Über die Jahre trifft Jamie, inzwischen drogenabhängiger Musiker, wiederholt auf Jacobs, der ihn jedes Mal tiefer in seine dämonische Welt zieht. Als Jamie sich dessen klar wird, gibt es kein Zurück mehr. Das finale Experiment steht bevor.

Flares are in. Flares are out. Flares are back again. Fads constantly cycle and recycle through popular culture, each time in a slightly new incarnation. The term ‘retro’ has become the buzz word for describing such trends, but what does it mean? Elizabeth Guffey explores here the ambiguous cultural meanings of the term and reveals why some trends just never seem to stay dead. Drawing upon a wealth of original research and entertaining anecdotal material, Guffey unearths the roots of the term retro and chronicles its evolving manifestations in culture and art throughout the last century. Whether in art, design, fashion or music, the idea of retro has often meant a re-emergence of styles and sensibilities that evoke familiar touchstones of memory from the not-so-distant past. Guffey explores how and why the past keeps coming back to haunt us in a variety of forms, from the comeback of Art Nouveau nearly fifty years after its original decline, to the infusion of Art Deco into the kitsch glamour of Pop art, to the recent popularity over 1980s vogue. She also considers how advertisers and media have employed the power of such cultural nostalgia, using recycled television jingles, familiar old slogans and famous art to sell a surprising range of products. An engrossing and wholly unprecedented study, Retroreveals how the past is embedded in the future of contemporary art and culture.

Im ländlichen Wisconsin erwachen eines Tages die Toten zum Leben. So muss nun Officer Dana Cypress, mit dem kritischen Blick der Medien, religiösen Fanatikern und der Quarantäne, die der Staat allen auferlegt hat, umgehen. Nicht nur die Polizistin ist betroffen, auch ihre wiederauferstandene Schwester Em schwebt in großer Gefahr, als ein Auftragskiller der Amisch hinter beiden her ist. Währenddessen deckt die Vorsitzende des Militärs, General Cale, ihr wahres Vorhaben mit den Einwohnern Wausaus auf. Gemeinsam mit Comiczeichner Mike Norton ist dem HACK/SLASH-Erfinder Tim Seeley erneut eine Comicstory mit der perfekten Mischung aus klassischen Genreelementen und intelligentem Suspense gelungen. Dana Cypress erinnert als Ermittlerin fürs Rothschild Police Departement, die im winterlichen schneebedeckten Wisconsin in einem Dickicht von Rätseln umherstolpert, an den schwangeren Sheriff Marge (gespielt von Frances McDorman) aus dem Kultfilm FARGO der Coen-Brüder. Und in seinem Vorwort zum ersten Band erklärt der kanadische Comiczeichner Jeff Lemire (u.a. ESSEX COUNTY) auch REVIVAL bereits zum Kult.

This book deconstructs the myth of progressive liberalism. The author explores left-wing ideals of equality, diversity, social justice and open society, and exposes them as empty fiction. The fate of modern civilization rests solely on the shoulders of men and women willing to defend it. After the European colonial age, the discovery of the New World, the Industrial Revolution and the establishment of the modern West, Western man has arrived at a crisis. Has he exhausted himself like Goethe's Faust? Should he end his quest for greatness and let others take charge of the world he built? Should he dissolve his ego and hide himself in the safe comfort of anonymous masses? Or should he, at long last, unleash his suppressed potential? High on a cocktail of sugar, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, antidepressants, penicillin and other drugs, people have fallen into a collective trance. Like the light at the end of the tunnel, the drunk masses think they are approaching eternal paradise on Earth, but in reality they are marching towards the abyss of their extinction. Only those foreseeing souls who have the courage to return their people to more traditional lifestyles, only those who are willing to break away from mass humanity, only they may jump the abyss and cheat destiny.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich BWL - Marketing, Unternehmenskommunikation, CRM, Marktforschung, Social Media, Note: 1,7, Eberhard-Karls-Universität Tübingen (Wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Fakultät), Veranstaltung: (im Rahmen des integrierten deutsch-italienischen Studienganges, 150 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: „Totgesagte leben länger“ – dieses Sprichwort scheint sich, bezogen auf die Welt der Marken, immer wieder zu bewahrheiten. So werden einhergehend mit dem derzeit vorherrschenden Retro-Trend, welcher sich in einer Reanimation vergangener Jahrzehnte äußert, auch immer mehr alte, scheinbar längst in Vergessenheit geratene Marken wieder zu neuem Leben erweckt, weshalb es sich von einem regelrechten „Revival alter Marken“ sprechen lässt. Bekannte Beispiele hierfür stellen vor allem Marken aus dem Bereich der kurzlebigen Konsumgüter wie Afri Cola, Bluna, Creme 21, und TRi-TOP dar, welche nach teilweise jahrzehntelanger Marktabstinenz wieder in das Sortiment deutscher Handelsketten eingezogen sind. Ebenso erfreuen sich Ahoj-Brause, Sinalco, Jägermeister oder Rotkäppchen Sekt, die zwar nie ganz vom Markt verschwunden waren, jedoch Schwächeperioden durchliefen, wieder größter Beliebtheit. Aber auch Marken aus dem Bereich der langlebigen Konsumgüter feierten nach langer Abwesenheit eine erfolgreiche Rückkehr, wie am Beispiel des VW Beetle als Neuauflage des alten Käfers zu beobachten war.

P. J. MATHEWS ARGUES AGAINST the received opinion that the Irish Revival was a purely mystical affair of high culture characterized by a preoccupation with a backward-looking Celtic spirituality, nostalgia for Gaelic Ireland, and anti-modern traditionalism. Instead, he claims, the time of the Irish Revival was a progressive period that witnessed the cooperation of various self-help movements -- the Abbey Theatre, the Gaelic League, and the Irish Agricultural Organization Society -- which encouraged local modes of material and cultural development. These different groups were bound together by their willingness to use traditional cultural forms as the basis for an alternative modernization project. Mathews points out that these self-help initiatives were so successful that they very quickly opened up a sphere of influence rivaling that of parliamentary politics. Much of this activity laid the groundwork for the emergence of the Sinn Fein in 1905. Making use of important theater productions of the period, Mathews skillfully traces the connections and overlaps among these radical movements and demonstrates that the self-help idea was crucial to the decolonization and modernization of Irish society during the early years of the twentieth century.

God is the cause of all causes. Volumes have been written on the reasons America has prospered and conquered, due to our guns, our germs, and our steel. Why? Why our guns, our germs, our American steel? This book replies to those who deprecate God in American's innermost being. This book will preach the cause of all causes, and how He brought America to greatness. Pierce the darkness. Like the embattled 101st Airborne Division at Bastogne in World War II, American Christianity is encircled and surrounded and embattled now. Like the intrepid 4th Armored Division, battling to the 101st's rescue, this book now beats an inexorable dread-wrought path to Christianity's rescue, with reminders beyond chance of why America is what it is. Exalt Him. Revive us.

In 1956, Theravada Buddhists in Sri Lanka and throughout Southeast Asia celebrated the 2500th anniversary of the Buddha`s entry into Nirvana and of the establishment of the Buddhist tradition. This book examines this revival of Theravada Buddhism among the laity of Sri Lanka, analysing its origins and its growth up to the present-day. Within the spectrum of reinterpretations that have comprised the revival, the book focuses on four important types or patterns of reinterpretation and response. It examines the rational reformism of the early Protestant Buddhists led by Anagarika Dharmapala and the conservative neotraditionalism of the Jayanti period.Particular attention is given to two of the most recent and dynamic reforms, the insight meditation movement, breaking with tradition, has opened the path of meditation to lay people, enabling them to seek Nirvana without renouncing the world. The sarvodaya Shramadana movement has addressed the social context, reinterpreting the Buddhist heritage to derive authentic forms of Buddhist social development. Comprising this series of interpretations and options for lay Buddhists, the Buddhist revival represents a new gradual path to Nirvana.

Nearly twenty-five percent of the world's Christians count themselves among the Charismatic and Pentecostal family of Christian Movements, yet few know how Pentecostalism began. The Azusa Street Mission and Revival tells the story of the small racially-inclusive group that gathered in Los Angeles in 1906 and changed the world of Christianity. With little more than a printing press, a trolley stop and a powerful message, the revival that began at Apostolic Faith Mission on Azusa Street, rapidly crossed more than race lines-into Mexico, Western Europe, Scandinavia and West Africa-and began to change the landscape of Christianity. The complete story of the Mission has finally been recorded, with photographs, articles and testimonies.

The word-wide impact of evangelicalism has long been recognized as a vital force. Providing both a clear and accessible guide to the recent literature, this introduction examines the revival in the British Isles during the 18th and 19th-century within a broadly international context. By investigating the nature of the revival and emphasizing its link with popular culture, this analysis explores the centrality of religion in this period. Posing questions such a "how far was the revival a threat to order?" And "what was its influence on society?" This work provides an introduction to the topic for all A-level and undergraduate students of 18th and 19th-century British history.
