Being a teenager is never easy...especially for a centaur! A Centaur's Life is an ongoing manga series with a wholly unique take on the slice-of-life genre-it focuses on the daily school life of supernatural creatures. This series features quirky and adorable artwork presented in oversized editions that include a color insert in each volume. Himeno is a sweet, shy girl, who, like many teens her age, struggles with the trials and tribulations of attending high school. The difference is she's a centaur; but she's not alone. In fact, all of her classmates are supernatural creatures, sporting either horns, wings, tails, halos, or some other unearthly body appendage. Yet despite their fantastical natures, Himeno and her best friends-the dragon-winged Nozomi, and Kyoko with her spiraled horns-are down-to earth, fun-loving teenagers who grapple with issues of life and love in a mostly normal daily school setting. A Centaur's Life will appeal to fans of slice-of-life manga like Yotsuba&! and of supernatural schools like Rosario + Vampire.

What does it mean to be a gay man living in the suburbs? Do you identify primarily as gay, or suburban, or some combination of the two? For that matter, how does anyone decide what his or her identity is? In this first-ever ethnography of American gay suburbanites, Wayne H. Brekhus demonstrates that who one is depends at least in part on where and when one is. For many urban gay men, being homosexual is key to their identity because they live, work, and socialize in almost exclusively gay circles. Brekhus calls such men "lifestylers" or peacocks. Chameleons or "commuters," on the other hand, live and work in conventional suburban settings, but lead intense gay social and sexual lives outside the suburbs. Centaurs, meanwhile, or "integrators," mix typical suburban jobs and homes with low-key gay social and sexual activities. In other words, lifestylers see homosexuality as something you are, commuters as something you do, and integrators as part of yourself. Ultimately, Brekhus shows that lifestyling, commuting, and integrating embody competing identity strategies that occur not only among gay men but across a broad range of social categories. What results, then, is an innovative work that will interest sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists, and students of gay culture.

The centaur’s prized possession was lost and as the guard on duty that night, all blame is placed on Lysander. For punishment, they exiled him to the human’s world, away from his herd and the only life he had known. The only way he can get back to Olympus is to find the lost item. A feat made much more difficult when a gorgeous, tall, and leggy blonde trots into his life. Mendra is the last of her kind, a Pegasus with the ability to shift into human form or equine form. Her mother told her wild tales about lands with centaurs, satyrs, Gods, and heroes, but she never believed them. Until she met a man like her, a man who could shift into equine form and tells her similar stories. He asks for her help finding a lost item, so he can return to Olympus and his herd. She wants to help him, but she’s afraid to lose the one person who makes her feel like she’s home. Lysander convinces Mendra to help him, but as they search for the lost item, he isn’t so certain he wants to return home. Life with the humans is so much different than Olympus and his heart aches at the thought of leaving Mendra behind, alone in a world without a herd of her own. Will his arrow fly true, or will they lose more than they ever imagined?

This book provides a comprehensive account of the Athenians' conception of women during the classical period of the fifth and fourth centuries BC. Though nothing remains that represents the authentic voice of the women themselves, there is a wealth of evidence showing how men sought to define women. By working through a range of material, from the provisions of Athenian law through to the representations of tragedy and comedy, the author builds up, in the manner of an anthropological ethnography, a coherent and integrated picture of the Athenians' notion of `woman'.

Masks are found world-wide in connection with seasonal festivals, rites of passage, and curative ceremonies. They provide a means of investigating the paradoxical problems that appearances pose in the experience of transitional states. In this far-reaching work, A. David Napier studies mask iconography and the role played by masks in the realization of change. The masks of preclassical Greece�in particular those of the Satyr and the Gorgon�provide his starting point. A comparison of Greek to Eastern and especially Indian models follows, and the book concludes with an examination of the interpretation of Hindu ideas in Bali that demonstrates the importance of ambivalence in mask iconography.

Taylor Jones is the mayor of Animal Forks, Colorado, in the year 2049. The town was nestled in a beautiful valley between two mountains. Living in Animal Forks was a hunter’s paradise, with plenty of game and fishing with lakes and rivers as well as forest with hiking trails. But Animal Forks offered so much more than hunting and fishing. Generations before Taylor Jones and others came to Animal Forks, it was known as Magic Earth. Those who lived in the valley experienced powers beyond their belief; telepathic communication, telekinesis, and mind reading were just a few of the gifts that the town folks displayed. Those who lived in Magic Earth had found the fountain of youth and had to guard their secret from the rest of the world, or their valley would be totally destroyed by others desperate to live forever. Taylor and the town council were vigilant in keeping their treasure hidden away in the valley, but there were residents who were determined to cash in on the riches contained there. When secrets began to trickle from the valley about the supernatural resources available, the powers that be were eager to take advantage of the gullible Mayor Jones. The most powerful man in the world, El Bailé, sets up a station in Magic Earth, determined to find how to obtain the power for himself alone. The forest that surrounded Magic Earth held the secret to all the mystery of the beautiful valley, but those who found the answers to the incredible gifts of the Forks also risked losing themselves in a time where magic creatures would either enslave them or fight for them. The world leader, El Bailé, finds his destiny in the forest of Magic Earth, and the world would never be the same. Join the people of Magic Earth on their journey to find who is behind the mystery and power of the world that has converged on a small Colorado valley.

Preserving art, freedom, and human dignity in the age of the totalitarian state was one of the great challenges of the twentieth century. In Centaur, Slavic scholar Albert Leong chronicles the life and work of the greatest living Russian sculptor and philosopher of art, Ernst Neizvestny, who survived the Soviet police state to become a folk hero to his people. Based on extensive research in the formerly closed Soviet archives and exclusive interviews with Neizvestny and his family and friends, Centaur tells the amazing story of a visionary artist and World War II commando officer who narrowly escaped death on the battlefield and successfully defied Stalin, Kruschev, Brezhnev, and the KGB to create acclaimed works of monumental art. Forced into exile in the West in 1976, Neizvestny returned in triumph to Russia in 1989 to design the first monuments to the countless victims of Stalinist political repression. Supplemented by seventy-five photographs, Centaur will engross specialists and general readers interested in biography, cultural history, art, architecture, politics, and Russian/Soviet studies.

The seventy-two entries in this volume explore, among other topics, the history, geography, and religion of Greece, Plato's mythology and philosophy, the powers of marriage in Greece, heroes and gods of war in the Greek epic, and origins of mankind in Greek myths. Ancient Egyptian cosmology, anthropology, rituals, and religion—closely linked to Greek mythology—are also discussed. "In a world that remains governed by powerful myths, we must deepen our understanding of ourselves and others by considering more carefully the ways in which the mythological systems to which we cling and social institutions and movements to which we are committed nourish each other. Yves Bonnefoy's Mythologies not only summarizes the progress that has already been made toward this end, but also lays the foundation for the difficult work that lies ahead."—Mark C. Taylor, New York Times Book Review "The almost 100 contributors combine, with characteristic precision and élan, the arts of science and poetry, of analysis and translation. The result is a treasury of information, brilliant guesswork, witty asides, and revealing digressions. This is a work of genuine and enduring excitement."—Thomas D'Evelyn, Christian cience Monitor
