Die 16-jährige Cora erwacht mitten in einer Wüste. Sie wurde offensichtlich entführt! Aber von wem? Und wo um Himmels willen ist sie gelandet? Denn an die Wüste grenzen eine arktische Tundra und das Meer, dahinter liegt eine filmkulissenartige Stadt. Fünf weitere Jugendliche irren durch die merkwürdige und, wie sich bald zeigt, sehr gefährliche Szenerie. Und dann tritt Cassian auf: ein unglaublich schöner junger Mann, der sich als ihr Wächter vorstellt. Ihr Wächter in einem Zoo, Millionen Kilometer von zu Hause entfernt. Eine Flucht scheint unmöglich zu sein. Bis sich zwischen Cora und Cassian eine verbotene Anziehung entwickelt. Doch kann Cora ihm genug vertrauen, um zu fliehen?

Du kommst zu Bewusstsein und bist allein. Nur Dunkelheit und Du selbst. Du weißt nicht wer du bist, du weißt nicht wo du bist und wie du hier her gelangt bist, was vor dem hier war und ob es überhaupt etwas anderes als das hier gibt. Das hier: eine Höhle aus alles verzehrender Dunkelheit, du fühlst kalten, feuchten Stein, quälenden Durst, Hunger und Schmerzen. Erinnerungen schweben wie Wolkenfetzen nicht greifbar vor deinen Augen, ausgelöst durch Eindrücke und Gedanken, die du nicht verstehst. Du musst überleben, du musst hier raus, und du merkst du bist hier nicht allein! Aber was ist irgendwann noch wahr und was schon Halluzination? Ein Kampf ums Überleben zwischen Himmel und Tod beginnt. Du entwickelst Strategien um am Leben zu bleiben, um nicht den Verstand zu verlieren, um Licht ins Dunkle zu bringen. Und doch ist nichts wahr, was wahr scheint. Traue niemandem, vor allem nicht dir selbst!

When Frank Hammond became a counselor at South Oak Cliff High School in the Dallas Independent School District, he had a good feeling. As a black man with a solid church upbringing and a degree from a historical black college, he felt he could really make a difference in the lives of young, inner-city kids who attended this predominately black high school. It didn’t take Hammond long to discover that all was not well within the walls of the high school. In SOC: Welcome to the Cage, he provides a behind-the-scenes look at what happened at this school as the focus turned from understanding black dynamics to black exploitation. Hammond reveals the scandals that took place at the school, including a corrupt and unethical principal, a staff that stole from students and engaged in inappropriate sexual relations, security guards who forced students to cage fight, and manipulation of student grades. SOC: Welcome to the Cage narrates the transgressions and describes what happened when Hammond blew the whistle; the school district was forced to choose between doing what was right and protecting its basketball championships—an action that affected a member of the University of Kansas national championship basketball team.

Two mysterious strangers appear at a hotel in a small country town. Where have they come from? Who are they? What catastrophe are they fleeing? The townspeople want answers, but the strangers are unable to speak of their trauma. And before long, wary hospitality shifts to suspicion and fear, and the care of the men slides into appalling cruelty. Lloyd Jones’s fable-like novel The Cage is a profound and unsettling novel about humanity and dignity and the ease with which we’re able to justify brutality. Lloyd Jones has written novels, short stories and a memoir. He won the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize for his novel Mister Pip. His other books include Hand Me Down World and A History of Silence. Lloyd lives in Wellington. ‘It is a thought-provoking and affecting book for readers of literary fiction where the morally questionable appears very ordinary.’ Books+Publishing, FOUR STARS ‘A dark fable of imprisonment.’ Sydney Morning Herald, What to Read in 2018 ‘Jones builds calmly, rationally, in prose shot through with instances of unexpected beauty and tenderness to a terrible climax.’ Adelaide Advertiser ‘...A thinly disguised allegory of how easily ordinary, civilised people can lose their humanity, which reminded me of William Golding’s Lord of the Flies.’ Australian Financial Review ‘Its mastery lies in its mystery; the skill with which it leaves things unsaid. An audacious and affecting riff on the tenuousness of understanding and the frailty of good intentions. What on earth will the guy do next?’ NZ Herald ‘Simply, clearly and vividly written, the moral dilemma posed in The Cage will linger long in my mind.’ NZ Spin Off, Book of the Week ‘Lloyd Jones’ new and possibly best novel will hold you in its narrative grip from its first page...This is exciting, risk-taking writing...Is it a fable? Probably, although it’s open enough for you to make your own interpretation, possibly more than one. Does it have antecedents? Numerous: Orwell, with the occupants of the hotel constantly watching the occupants of the cage: Cormac McCarthy’s The Road, with its air hopeless bleakness; the Kafkaesque way unsettling events are described with deadpan detachment; and all the absurdity and hopelessness of a Beckett play.’ North & South ‘A profound and unsettling allegorical fable...Its powerful message camouflaged by almost fairytale simplicity. The Cage explores how quickly humanity and dignity can segue into brutality when communication breaks down. Trust is revealed as fragile, forever at the mercy of authoritarian impulse.’ Qantas Magazine ‘The puzzle of where the human essence lies and is shared is implicit in Jones' dark parable.’ Age ‘It is (also) brilliant. It compels and repels.’ NZ Listener ‘With archetypal characters and a setting that is only roughly outlined, the story is contemporary yet feels out of time and place.’ Australian ‘Lloyd Jones’s new and possibly best novel will hold you in its narrative grip from it’s first pages...This is exciting, risk-taking writing.’ North & South

With this innovative analysis of the music of Charles Ives, Philip Lambert fills a significant gap in the literature on one of America's most important composers. Lambert offers the first large-scale theoretical study of Ives's repertoire, encompassing major works in all genres. He argues that systematic techniques governed Ives's compositional language and thinking about music, even in his unconventional and apparently unstructured pieces. He portrays Ives as a composer of great diversity and complexity who nevertheless held to a single artistic vision. Using modes of analysis for post-tonal music and approaches devised specifically for the study of Ives as well, the author explains the origin, evolution, and culmination of Ives's systematic methods. He discusses important aspects of the composer's early training, the relation between Ives's experimental and his concert music, Ives's fugal and canonic techniques as the basis for his systematic music, his paradigms of procedure and transformation, and pitch relations in Ives's music, particularly the unfinished Universe Symphony. Lambert refutes the popular image of Ives as a highly eccentric composer haphazardly casting about for arbitrarily regulated ways of generating musical material and instead portrays him as a keenly determined and resourceful artist who gradually discovered ever more powerful tools for creating remarkably original music.

Little children ought to learn all the teachings Jesus taught about in the Bible. 1/6th of everything Jesus taught about was on judgment and hell. That is a huge amount of teaching on the subject! But how do we teach our children such a hard biblical idea appropriately? In this tastefully illustrated work that is completely in rhyme, the Bible’s teaching about hell is outlined in a very easy to understand manner. It is aimed at children 5 to 9 years old, but can certainly be read by any age. It concerns a young boy who we find is trapped in a cage called “Big Sin” and can’t escape on his own. The cage is suspended by a chain that is rusting and could break at any moment. What will our young friend do? What is he thinking about as he stands there locked away? He sees others in cages as well, some who don’t escape, and some who jump to safety as their prisons doors are opened by a mysterious key. Will our young friend get out? How will he escape THE CAGE?

First published in 1975, The Cage was a graphic novel before there was a name for the genre. Considered an early masterpiece of the genre, the Canadian cult comic has been out of print for decades. The new edition includes an introduction by Canadian comics master and Lemony Snicket collaborator Seth (Palookaville; It's a Good Life, If You Don't Weaken). Cryptic and disturbing, like Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) illustrating a film by Ozu, The Cage spurns narrative for atmosphere, guiding us through a series of disarrayed rooms and desolate landscapes, tracking a stuttering and circling time and a sequence of objects: headphones, inky stains, bedsheets. It's not about where we're going but how – if – we get there.

In just four months in 2009, Sri Lanka's 26 year-old desperate civil war came to a brutal and bloody end on a desolate stretch of beach in the island's north east. Tens of thousands of civilians were killed when the government decimated the guerilla organisation, the Tamil Tigers. Gordon Weiss witnessed the conflict at first hand as a UN spokesman in Colombo. His devastating account unravels the compelling history that led up to that final horrific episode, peeling back the Sri Lankan government's cloak of silence to reveal the truth of those tragic events.

The most popular outdoor basketball court in New York City is half the regulation size, offers no seating, and has sidelines bounded by a chain-link fence. But the summer league on West 4th Street in Greenwich Village has developed its share of stars and has become known throughout the world for another reason: Here the only thing that matters is the game. Inside the Cage follows the West 4th Street's summer league through a single season, chronicling its legendary history along the way. From 1970s playground legend Fly Williams to NBA veteran Anthony Mason and L.A. Lakers guard Smush Parker, three generations of players have mastered their game at West 4th Street. And the Cage itself -- located in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in America and frequented by men from the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Harlem -- proves that talent can flourish even in the most unlikely places.

The picture on the front of this book is an illustration for Totakahini: The tale of the parrot, by Rabindranath Tagore, in which he satirized education as a magnificent golden cage. Opening the cage addresses mathematics education as a complex socio-political phenomenon, exploring the vast terrain that spans critique and politics. Opening the cage includes contributions from educators writing critically about mathematics education in diverse contexts. They demonstrate that mathematics education is politics, they investigate borderland positions, they address the nexus of mathematics, education, and power, and they explore educational possibilities. Mathematics education is not a free enterprise. It is carried on behind bars created by economic, political, and social demands. This cage might not be as magnificent as that in Tagore’s fable. But it is strong. Opening the cage is a critical and political challenge, and we may be surprised to see what emerges.
