Horses perceive the world differently from humans because their senses developed differently through evolution to cope with different ways of living and surviving. Horses are essentially prey/flight animals. The horse’s senses therefore determine how the world appears to him and how he reacts to it. As the horse’s perception and understanding are very different to ours sometimes their reaction to events and their surroundings seem strange to us. In this book the author compares the horses sensory organs with those of humans to avoid misunderstandings as lack of knowledge can lead to many problems when dealing with horses. The five senses are covered in this book: hearing, sight, smell, taste and touch. Each section explains how the horses’ sense works and then this is related to care, behavior and riding, explaining why some practices are appropriate and why some are not. The behavioral aspect of dealing with horses is emphasized throughout. The author is founder of the Equine Behaviour Forum and author of over 40 books on equine topics. She has an HNC in Equine Sciences and Management, is a Classical Riding Club Gold Award Holder and classical trainer, an equine shiatsu practitioner, and an Associate Member of the International Society for Equitation Science. This book is useful for all horse owners, horse breeders and trainers who wish to gain a better understanding of how the horse’s senses function, and for veterinary students and practitioners.
Society Of The Spectacle
Author: Guy Debord
Publisher: Bread and Circuses Publishing
The Das Kapital of the 20th century,Society of the Spectacle is an essential text, and the main theoretical work of the Situationists. Few works of political and cultural theory have been as enduringly provocative.

This ‘Red and Black’ translation from 1977 is Introduced by Notting Hill armchair insurrectionary Tom Vague with a galloping time line and pop-situ verve, and given a more analytical over view by young upstart thinker Sam Cooper.

Through Fanny Price, the heroine of Mansfield Park, Jane Austen views the social mores of her day and contemplates human nature itself. A shy and sweet-tempered girl adopted by wealthy relations, Fanny is an outsider looking in on an unfamiliar, and often inhospitable, world. But Fanny eventually wins the affection of her benefactors, endearing herself to the Bertram family and the reader alike. In her Introduction, Carol Shields writes, [Mansfield Park's] overriding theme is difficult to isolate, since the novel is about everything it touches upon: nurturing, steadfastness, belonging and not belonging, about fine gradations of moral persuasion, about human noise and silence, and about action and stillness.
Films that Work
Author: Vinzenz Hediger, Patrick Vonderau
Publisher: Amsterdam University Press
Industriële films worden gezien als een apart filmgenre van de twintigste eeuw. Ze werden geproduceerd en gesponsord door de overheid en grote bedrijven en moesten vooral aan de wensen van de sponsors voldoen, en niet zo zeer aan die van de filmmakers. In de hoogtijdagen werkten er duizenden mensen aan deze industriële films. Zo zijn er vakbladen en filmfestivals ontstaan door samenwerking met grote bedrijven als Shell en AT & T. Daarnaast hebben belangrijke regisseurs, zoals Buster Keaton, John Grierson en Alain Resnais, aan deze films meegewerkt. Toch lijkt de industriële film geen spoor te hebben achtergelaten in het filmische culturele discours. Films that Work is het eerste boek waarin de industriële film en zijn opmerkelijke geschiedenis worden onderzocht.

Extrait: ...sujet sec et facile a dissequer le matin, est souvent comme infiltre le soir, si le temps a ete humide: or cette infiltration a lieu dans le systeme cellulaire, qui est alors un veritable hygrometre. Composition du Tissu cellulaire. Les chimistes ont place ce tissu dans la classe generale des organes blancs, dans ceux qui fournissent une grande quantite de gelatine. Il en donne en effet, et on obtient, par une dissolution de tan, un precipite remarquable de l'eau dans laquelle ce tissu a bouilli sans organes etrangers que les vaisseaux qui le parcourent, comme est par exemple celui du scrotum. J'ai fait cette experience. Mais cependant divers reactifs agissent sur ce tissu bien differemment que sur les tissus fibreux, cutane, cartilagineux, etc. Expose a Faction de l'air, le tissu cellulaire se seche avec promptitude, mais sans prendre la couleur jaunaeredu tissu fibreux: il resteblanc.Lorsqu'on le fait secher par plaques un peu considerables, ses cellules se collent les unes aux autres, et ces plaques etant un peu distendues pour faciliter la dessiccation, representent, lorsqu'elle est achetee, une veritable membrane sereuse, qu'il seroit impossible, de distinguer d'un lambeau des veritables sechees aussi. Dans cet etat, le tissu cellulaire est souple; on le ploie dans tous les sens avec une extreme facilite; il n'a point la roideur du tissu fibreux desseche; quand on le replonge dans l'eau, il ne reprend qu'in parfaitement son apparence primitive; ses cellules se decollent avec peine....
