As the editor of Majesty magazine, Ingrid Seward has developed professional and personal relationships with the royal family. We discover a surprising portrait of the English monarch and the princess, contradicting what the press has previously reported: a fragile Diana battling an unfeeling mother-in-law. We learn that the Queen tried to welcome Diana into the royal family and that Di failed to grasp the hand of friendship. From the princess herself we hear details of what went on between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles. And we glimpse much more about the inner workings of the extended royal family. Entertaining and factual, The Queen & Di stands apart and above the countless, often inaccurate, accounts published to date about Diana. Ingrid Seward reveals for the first time the true relationship between two important women of the 20th century. Skyhorse Publishing, along with our Arcade, Good Books, Sports Publishing, and Yucca imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs. Our list includes biographies on well-known historical figures like Benjamin Franklin, Nelson Mandela, and Alexander Graham Bell, as well as villains from history, such as Heinrich Himmler, John Wayne Gacy, and O. J. Simpson. We have also published survivor stories of World War II, memoirs about overcoming adversity, first-hand tales of adventure, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

The Huang Di nei jing su wen, known familiarly as the Su wen, is a seminal text of ancient Chinese medicine, yet until now there has been no comprehensive, detailed analysis of its development and contents. At last Paul U. Unschuld offers entry into this still-vital artifact of China’s cultural and intellectual past. Unschuld traces the history of the Su wen to its origins in the final centuries B.C.E., when numerous authors wrote short medical essays to explain the foundations of human health and illness on the basis of the newly developed vessel theory. He examines the meaning of the title and the way the work has been received throughout Chinese medical history, both before and after the eleventh century when the text as it is known today emerged. Unschuld’s survey of the contents includes illuminating discussions of the yin-yang and five-agents doctrines, the perception of the human body and its organs, qi and blood, pathogenic agents, concepts of disease and diagnosis, and a variety of therapies, including the new technique of acupuncture. An extensive appendix, furthermore, offers a detailed introduction to the complicated climatological theories of Wu yun liu qi ("five periods and six qi"), which were added to the Su wen by Wang Bing in the Tang era. In an epilogue, Unschuld writes about the break with tradition and innovative style of thought represented by the Su wen. For the first time, health care took the form of "medicine," in that it focused on environmental conditions, climatic agents, and behavior as causal in the emergence of disease and on the importance of natural laws in explaining illness. Unschuld points out that much of what we surmise about the human organism is simply a projection, reflecting dominant values and social goals, and he constructs a hypothesis to explain the formation and acceptance of basic notions of health and disease in a given society. Reading the Su wen, he says, not only offers a better understanding of the roots of Chinese medicine as an integrated aspect of Chinese civilization; it also provides a much needed starting point for discussions of the differences and parallels between European and Chinese ways of dealing with illness and the risk of early death.

Al catalogo della mostra sono premessi un ricco saggio sulle "Ceramiche a Mantova al tempo dei Gonzaga" (M. Palvarini Gobio Casali), un profilo di Isabella (D. Ferrari), la ricostruzione delle vicende della credenza (V. Taylor) e un saggio sulla creazione delle interpetazioni contemporanee (E. Mantovani). Il volume è realizzato interamente a colori e comprende la traduzione integrale in lingua inglese dei testi.

Berbagai bencana dan musibah terus melanda Indonesia secara beruntun. Mulai dari tanah longsor, banjir, kapal tenggelam, gunung meletus, dan gempa bumi serta tsunami. Musibah dan bencana alam yang terus menerus terjadi, sudah seharusnya dikaji dan dicermati secara memadai, baik dari sisi duniawiah, maupun secara ilahiyah. Memang ada beberapa cara pandang dalam menilai berbagai bencana dan musibah yang terjadi di tanah air ini. Setidaknya ada 3 hal cara pandang terhadap musibah dan bencana yang terjadi : 1). Bencana disebabkan karena Sunatullah Alam semata. Bencana yang terjadi dipandang sebagai sebab faktor alam saja. Misalnya gunung meletus, kekeringan karena kemarau panjang , dan sebagainya. 2). Bencana atau musibah karena ulah tangan manusia. Bencana atau musibah yang terjadi dipandang sebagai akibat ulah tangan-tangan manusia (human error). Seperti banjir, tanah longsor, pesawat jatuh, dan sebagainya. Hal ini sesuai dengan ayat al-Qur’an : “Telah terjadi kerusakan di daratan dan di lautan yang diakibatkan karena perbuatan manusia”. 3). Bencana atau musibah yang terjadi karena azab dan peringatan Allah Swt. Dalam surat Al-An’am Allah Swt berfirman : “Katakanlah (Wahai Muhammad), Allah Maha Kuasa untuk mengirimkan azab kepada kalian, dari atas kalian maupun dari bawah kalian, atau mencampurkan kamu dalam golongan (yang saling bertentangan), dan merasakan kepada galian keganasan sebagian yang lain”. Tafsir Al-Ashabahani menjelaskan bahwa azab bisa berwujud halilintar, hujan batu, angin topan, gempa bumi dan tanah longsor. Bencana dan musibah yang melanda Indonesia, khususnya secara berturut- turut menimpa Lombok di Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB), dan di Palu serta Donggala di Sulawesi Tengah, barangkali bias dikategorikan sebagai azab Allah. Berbagai laporan menyebutkan di Lombok tingkat kemaksiatan sangat merajalela, terutama LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Biseksual, dan Transgender). Ada sebuah kawasan yang disebut Gili Trawangan, konon dikhususkan para turis asing, turis local dilarang masuk. Di tempat ini turis bebas melakukan apa saja, termasuk aktivitas sex LGBT. Di Palu demikian juga, kemaksiatan meraja lela, dibarengi dengan kemusy- rikan yang masih kental mewarnai masyarakatnya yang ditolerir oleh pemerintahannya. Konon sebelum gempa yang disusuk tsunami, di pantai Palau akan berlangsung upacara Nomoni, upacara adat yang sarat kemusyrikan. Pemprov Palu konon terlibat acara ini. Alla kulihal, dalam skala nasional berbagai musibah yang terjadi barangkali juga merupakan gabungan ketiga faktor di atas, sebagai penyebab datangnya bencana serta musibah. Rupiah anjlok, ekonomi merosot, korupsi merajalela lapangan kerja langka, pengangguran meningkat, daya beli masyarakat menurun, kemaksiatan berlangsung dimana-mana dan berbagai bencana yang terjadi, barangkali itu semua merupakan peringatan dari Allah Swt, sebagai penguasa alam semesta, kepada penduduk negeri Indonesia, khususnya pemegang kekuasaan serta peme- rintahannya. Suara Islam edisi 243 ini akan membahas tema: “Bencana Melanda Peringatan buat Rejim”. Tema akan dieksploran dalam 3 tulisan Suara Utama : 1). Round-up, 2). Penangan Bencana Lambat, 3) Bencana Peringatan Allah. Selain Suara Utama, Edisi 243 ini Suara Islam juga mengangkat Laporan Tasyakuran Pesantren AlQur’an alm. KH. Abdullah Syafi’ie ke-33. Acara ini dihadiri oleh Capres Prabowo Subianto. Dalam acara ini Prabowo menjawab berbagai pertanyaan tentang dirinya. Wassalam
