shikakuretsuden (Japanese Edition)

時は中国の戦国時代、秦が史上初めての天下統一に向けて着々と国力を整えていた。秦の始皇帝政は幼き頃、趙の人質となり、そこには燕の太子丹もともに人質となっていた。政の父親は、大商人呂不韋の支援のもとにやがて故国秦に帰り太子となることができ、王位を継ぐ。呂不韋は秦の宰相に任じられ権力をふるう。やがて父王が死ぬと、政はいつまでもつきまとう人質時代の鬱屈とした心理や、自分の出生の秘密に悩まされながら、やがて凶暴な王となっていく。燕の太子丹は、今度は秦に人質となっていたが、秦国の屈辱的な待遇に憤り燕に戻る。始皇帝の天下統一の野望は激しさを増し、燕は秦の軍事圧力のもとに危急に陥る。それを憂えた丹は、不屈のテロリスト荊軻を得て、領土を献上すると偽らせ秦王暗殺の密命を持たせ荊軻を秦に派遣する。秦王を追い詰めた荊軻であったが、事は成就せず、荊軻は殺され、やがて燕も秦に滅ぼされ、やがて天下は始皇帝のもとに統一される。
以上のような史実を踏まえながら、凶暴な始皇帝の精神がどのように出来上がったのか、心理分析を試み、呂不韋と政の母親の関係などを描くことにより、物語を生彩豊かなものとし、新しい歴史小説の方向を目指した。

ここに、小説の冒頭部分を掲載します。これを読み、興味を持ってくださり。この本をお手に取っていただければ幸いです。

第一部 この男荊軻

「俺は何をしたいのだろう」
男は歩きながら考えた。この年齢(とし)になっても芽が出ない。もう三十を越えた。大丈夫としての気概は人一倍持っているつもりだ。だが、立ち止まって溜め息をつけば、その気概もどこかへ漏れていってしまいそうだ。やはり歩こう。
「考えても見ろ、別に何もして来なかったわけじゃない。金が手に入れば書物に投じ、学問も積んできた。諸国を遍歴(へめぐ)っては各地の名士と誼(よしみ)を結んできた。そして、何より剣の修行に心を入れてきた。だが…」
この男、荊軻(けいか)という。戦国乱世の中国に生を受け、諸侯たちの果てしのない戦に疲れ行く民草どもの窮状を目の当たりにしている。
「だが、俺は、あの蘇秦や張儀のような口先だけの輩となり、諸侯の間を渡り歩いて巨万の富と名誉を手に入れたいというのだろうか。聞くところによると、張儀は諸侯の間で疎んじられ天下に己が身を入れるところがなくなったとき、心配した女房に向かってこう言ったそうだ。「どうだ、おれの舌はあるか。これさえあればおれの身は死んではいない。お前にもいつかいい目を見させてやる」」
荊軻は歩きながら己が手を見た。握りしめそして開いたその掌を見て、あのときの屈辱を思い出した。
荊軻、その祖はもと齊の人で、衛国へと移り住んだ。家は衛国で家業を営み、周りからはそれなりに一目置かれていた。衛国は小国なれど、その国君は広く天下の賢者の助言を求めているという触れ込みを若き荊軻は信じ、ある日城門をくぐった。だが、衛兵に追い返されること三度。衛君に是非、献策するのだと何とか頑張りやっと通された先に、退屈そうな老いぼれ役人がいて、某(それがし)が話を承りましょうという。いや、君に直接目通りして秘策を献じたいのだと、いくら軻がわめいても脅しても、これが規則ですからと、老いぼれ役人めはしらじらとしている。会わせないのなら上書させろというと、また、とぼけてそれではその上書、某が預かりましょうなどと言う。荊軻は、お前なぞ信用できるか、もっと責任のあるものを出せと怒ると、某は何々という役職でござって、某が上書の形式と内容を改める責任ある地位にある者にござる、云々とほざく。軻は散々毒づいて、そこらにあった机や椅子を蹴散らかし、帰ってきた。諸侯は賢者にへりくだり礼を尽くすなどと世の中で言われているが、所詮、訳のわからぬ愚か者ばかりなのだ。案の定、衛国は秦が魏に仕掛けた戦のとばっちりを受け、領地を移され、今や索漠たる有様なのも自業自得というものである。だが荊軻は己が献策が受け付けられなかった腹いせに、ざまを見ろという気にもならなかった。もしそんな気持ちが湧いたのなら、自分もあの愚かな衛君と同列になる。荊軻はもっと高いところを見ていた。
「私怨を晴らすのは易いことだ。だが、そんなつまらぬ私怨に拘(かか)ずらって何になる。俺はもっと大きなもののために動かねばならぬ」
手を開いて、また握ってみる。
「そうだ、俺はもっと強くなりたい。人としてもっと強くなりたいのだ」

荊軻の一家もまた騒乱にまぎれて中原を去り、北方の燕国へと流れきていた。その都、薊(けい)は中原から遠く隔たっているものの、さすがに一国の都、城塁に囲まれた大衙(たいが)が通り、市は殷賑を極めていた。荊軻の一家はここでも誠実に家業に励み、地歩を得つつあった。中華世界を経巡り、いま零落の荊軻が帰ろうとしていたのは、この燕国に住む親元であった。功成り名を遂げ錦を飾るわけでもなく、何の面目があって親に会えようかという気もしたが、だがこれといった当て途(あてど)もなく、足は自然とそちらへ向かうのであった。

Working Memory and Severe Learning Difficulties (PLE: Memory) (Psychology Library Editions: Memory Book 12) (English Edition) PDF Books

Working Memory and Severe Learning Difficulties (PLE: Memory) (Psychology Library Editions: Memory Book 12) (English Edition)

"Working memory" is a term used to refer to the systems responsible for the temporary storage of information during the performance of cognitive tasks. The efficiency of working memory skills in children may place limitations on the learning and performance of educationally important skills such as reading, language comprehension and arithmetic.


Originally published in 1992, this monograph considers the development of working memory skills in children with severe learning difficulties. These children have marked difficulties with a wide range of cognitive tasks. The studies reported show that they also experience profound difficulties in verbal working memory tasks. These memory problems are associated with a failure to rehearse information within an articulatory loop. Training the children to rehearse material is shown to help alleviate these problems.


The implications of these studies for understanding normal memory development, and for models of the structure of working memory and its development are discussed. It is argued that the working memory deficits seen in people with severe learning difficulties may contribute to their difficulties on other cognitive tasks.

Warrior's Realm: Book Three of the Warrior Chronicles (English Edition) PDF Books

Warrior's Realm: Book Three of the Warrior Chronicles (English Edition)

Following Cortland Addison, humanity will finally march onto the galactic stage. Facing both an unknown enemy that can turn planets into crystal, and enemies within his own government, the reluctant leader must unite Earth to defend a coalition of planets it can never join.
As Addison navigates the morality and justice that force him to kill billions, he also fights a personal struggle to protect the survivors of his own onslaught. Ultimately, personal mores and a sense of duty force him to assume his destined role as War Incarnate.
Together with Bazal, the last of an ancient species of octopods, Cort must find the balance between his own realm, one of death and vengeance, and the peaceful existence that has led the rest of the galactic arm to the brink of extinction. It is against this backdrop that Cort faces his own past, to ensure that it cannot destroy his family yet again.
Warrior’s Realm is the journey not only of Cortland Addison and his wolves, but also the beginning of humanity’s journey to the stars.

Fra Angelico, le peintre des anges: Un religieux à l'aube de la Renaissance italienne (Artistes t. 15)

Décryptez l'art de Fra Angelico en moins d'une heure !

Dans l’Italie prospère du quattrocento, l’heure est au renouveau : la Renaissance marque un tournant artistique sans précédent, révolutionnant les arts et les lettres. Le mot d'ordre ? Le retour à l’Antiquité. C’est dans ce contexte propice à la création qu’un frère dominicain, Fra Angelico, ébauche une œuvre emblématique de l'époque. Puisant aux sources du gothique international, il marque sa production de plusieurs innovations qui feront date dans l'histoire de l'art.

Ce livre vous permettra d’en savoir plus sur :
- Le contexte politique et culturel dans lequel Fra Angelico s’inscrit
- La vie de l'artiste et son parcours
- Les caractéristiques et spécificités de son art
- Une sélection d’œuvres-clés de Fra Angelico
- Son impact dans l’histoire de l’art

Le mot de l’éditeur :
« Dans ce numéro de la série "50MINUTES | Artistes", Caroline Blondeau-Morizot s'arrête sur les moments-clés du parcours de Fra Angelico, ainsi que sur ses plus grandes œuvres : le retable de l'Annonciation, aujourd'hui exposé à Madrid, Le Couronnement de la Vierge, conservé au musée du Louvre, ou encore L'Annonciation du couvent San Marco de Florence. Une importance toute particulière a été donnée à l'étude de la lumière et de l'éclat si particulier des œuvres de l'artiste. Ce n'est pas pour rien qu'il fut surnommé "le peintre angélique" ! »

Little Book of Circle Processes: A New/Old Approach To Peacemaking (Little Books of Justice & Peacebuilding) (English Edition)

          Our ancestors gathered around a fire in a circle, families gather around their kitchen tables in circles, and now we are gathering in circles as communities to solve problems. The practice draws on the ancient Native American tradition of a talking piece.           Peacemaking Circles are used in neighborhoods to provide support for those harmed by crime and to decide sentences for those who commit crime, in schools to create positive classroom climates and resolve behavior problems, in the workplace to deal with conflict, and in social services to develop more organic support systems for people struggling to get their lives together.           A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.
