There is a generally accepted notion in biblical scholarship that the Bible as we know it today is the product of editing from its earliest stages of composition through to its final, definitive and "canonical" textual form. So persistent has been this idea since the rise of critical study in the seventeenth century and so pervasive has it become in all aspects of biblical study that there is virtually no reflection on the validity of this idea" (from the Introduction). Van Seters proceeds to survey the history of the idea of editing, from its origins in the pre-Hellenistic Greek world, through Classical and Medieval times, into the modern era. He discusses and evaluates the implications of the common acceptance of "editing" and "editors/redactors" and concludes that this strand of scholarship has led to serious misdirection of research in modern times.

"I have known Nagindas for more than 32 years. When I first met him in the early 1980s I was a newly qualified accountant, and Nagindas had already been in practice for more than 15 years. At the time he had just returned from a stint of work in the Middle East, and since I was contemplating going to the Middle East for work also, he was a source of much advice and guidance, and indeed, he was a kind of role model to me--he inspired me to achieve his level of attainment. Since I returned to the UK in the early 2000s, Nagindas has acted as my accountant (as I have moved away from the world of accounting and auditing). The last 15 years has been the time when I have come to know Nagindas at a much closer, professional and personal, level. Professionally, I would say that he is a competent and thorough accountant with integrity and always has the best interests of his clients at heart. I have found that he does not panic in crisis situations--his approach to crisis management is to always act in a cool and calm manner. On any particular aspect involving accounting, auditing or taxation matter, he first develops deep understanding of the subject matter--he does not comment until he has all the facts--and when he does, he goes to the 'crux of the matter'--this is reflected in one of the companies he has set up At a personal level--Nagindas is approachable and jovial--and humorous at times--many a times I can think of examples where his particular take on a matter was accompanied by humorous anecdotes which made a lot of sense and captured the essence of the subject or idea being discussed. I personally think this is reflected in some of the 'Letters to the Editor' that he has written to newspapers over the last decade and a half." S. B. K.

This book provides an account of current work on letters to the editor from a range of different national, cultural, conceptual and methodological perspectives. Letters to the editor provide a window on the reflexive relationship between editorial and readership identities in historical and international contexts. They are a forum through which the personal and the political intersect, a space wherein the implications of contemporaneous events are worked out by citizens and public figures alike, and in which the meaning and significance of unfolding media narratives and events are interpreted and contested. They can also be used to understand the multiple and overlapping ways that particular issues recur over sometimes widely distinct periods. This collection brings together scholars who have helped open up letters to the editor as a resource for scholarship and whose work in this book continues to provide new insights into the relationship between journalism and its publics.
Originally published between 1909 and 1917 under the name "Harvard Classics," this stupendous 51-volume set-a collection of the greatest writings from literature, philosophy, history, and mythology-was assembled by American academic CHARLES WILLIAM ELIOT (1834-1926), Harvard University's longest-serving president. Also known as "Dr. Eliot's Five Foot Shelf," it represented Eliot's belief that a basic liberal education could be gleaned by reading from an anthology of works that could fit on five feet of bookshelf. Volume L features Eliot's introduction, a reader's guide, and the complete indexes for the entire collection: an index to the first lines of every piece of verse, a general index, and a chronological index.
An omnibus of thought-provoking, engaging, and heartwarming stories set in Edo Japan, the modern world, and far into the future.
