ggf. zzgl. Versand

The discovery of a corpse washed up on a beach in an Icelandic backwater sparks a series of events that propels the village of Hvalvik's police sergeant Gunnhildur into deep waters. Although under pressure to deal with the matter quickly, she is suspicious that the man's death was no accident and once she has identified the body, sets about investigating his final hours. The case takes Gunnhildur away from her village and into a cosmopolitan world of shady deals, government corruption and violence. She finds herself alone and less than welcome in this hostile environment as she tries to find out who it was that made sure the young man drowned on a dark night one hundred kilometres from where he should have been - and why. Although born in the UK in 1962, through a series of coincidences Quentin Bates found himself working in Iceland in his gap year. The gap year then became 10 years, during which time he managed to get himself married, produce a family, and generally go native in Iceland. The family then moved back to the UK in 1990 where Quentin became a full-time journalist on a commercial fishing magazine. Frozen Assets was born through the author's own inside knowledge of Iceland and its society, along with exploring the world of crime. He and his (Icelandic) wife frequently return to Iceland, where they have many friends, including several in the Reykjavik police. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mel Hudson.

Norse mythology, or Scandinavian mythology, is the body of mythology of the North Germanic people stemming from Norse paganism and continuing after the Christianization of Scandinavia and into the Scandinavian folklore of the modern period. Most of the knowledge used to create this book is from the Icelandic historian and poet, Snorri Sturluson, who wrote The Prose Edda around the year 1200. The Norse gods and goddesses were loved by the Vikings. The Vikings came mainly from Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland. People around the world have been fascinated and inspired by Norse mythology for centuries. In the late 20th century, references to Norse mythology became common in science fiction and fantasy literature, role-playing games, and eventually other cultural products such as Japanese animation and Hollywood movies.

Architectural Atmospheres
19,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Architecture is increasingly understood to be a sensual, spatial experience, which means that the experience of buildings and spatial constellations is also a perception of atmospheres that are rated as positive or negative. Architects, planners, investors, and politicians must produce effects such as these according to intersubjective and communicable criteria, and not intuitively or randomly. Architectural Atmospheres addresses the growing awareness of the atmospheric dimension of architecture and provides a current, programmatic discussion of this topic. What possibilities does this approach open to architecture, what value does this knowledge have? Three essays and a conversation lead a cross-discipline discussion on the impact of architecture, and contribute to the debate first initiated by Peter Zumthor. The texts are accompanied bythirty-five color images that capture architectural moods in a variety of ways. Gernot Böhme is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Darmstadt Technical University and Director of the Institute for Practical Philosophy, e.V., Ipph, in Darmstadt, Germany. Christian Borch is Professor of Political Sociology at the Department of Management, Politics, and Philosophy, Copenhagen Business School, Denmark. Olafur Eliasson is a Danish-Icelandic artist. Eliasson incessantly explores our modes of perceiving. His work spans photography, installation, sculpture, and film. Juhani Pallasmaa is one of Finland's most distinguished architects and architectural thinkers. Architektur wird vermehrt als ein sinnlicher Erfahrungsraum verstanden. So ist das Erleben von Bauten und Raumkonstellationen immer auch ein Wahrnehmen von positiv oder negativ gewerteten Atmosphären. Architekten, Planer, Investoren und Politiker sind darauf angewiesen, solche Wirkungen nicht intuitiv oder zufällig, sondern nach intersubjektiven und kommunizierbaren Kriterien zu erzeugen.Architectural Atmospheres greift das wachsende Bewusstsein für die atmosphärische Dimension der Architektur auf und liefert eine aktuelle, programmatische Auseinandersetzung mit diesem Themenfeld. Welche Möglichkeiten eröffnet dieser Zugang zur Architektur, wo liegt sein Erkenntniswert? Drei Essays und ein Gespräch verhandeln fächerübergreifend die Wirkungsmacht der Architektur und regen zu einer Fortsetzung der von Peter Zumthor initiierten Debatte an. Die Texte werden von rund 35 farbigen Abbildungen begleitet, die in vielfältiger Weise architektonische Stimmungen auffangen.

An Icelandic Midwifery Saga Coming to Light
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Through the ages women have had midwives to help at their birth. This book is about an ethnographic narrative study conducted in Iceland, exploring midwives storytelling about their knowledge experience and working life in the period from the mid twentieth century to the present time. During interviews with twenty six midwives birth stories were collected. The findings describe the core narrative which surrounds the act of being with woman" during birth, considered to be fundamental in making connections with women and the birth itself to learn different ways of knowing, including the intuitive, spiritual and theoretical. Icelandic midwives have a common philosophy of care that is associated with a midwifery partnership model of care, incorporated in the ideological statements of the Icelandic midwifery education. Yet, as in other countries, modern maternity care in centralized hospitals pushes midwives toward industrial and medical models of care. This can have detrimental effects on the many facets of midwifery relationships with women and midwives ways of knowing. The danger is that midwifery knowledge and skills will be lost to promote normality and safety of birth.
