Complicated Women: Sex and Power in Pre-Code Hollywood

Between 1929 and 1934, women in American cinema were modern! For five short years women in American cinema were modern! They took lovers, had babies out of wedlock, got rid of cheating husbands, enjoyed their sexuality, led unapologetic careers and, in general, acted the way many think women only acted after 1968.
Before then, women on screen had come in two varieties – good or bad – sweet ingenue or vamp. Then two stars came along to blast away these common stereotypes. Garbo turned the femme fatale into a woman whose capacity for love and sacrifice made all other human emotions seem pale. Meanwhile, Norma Shearer succeeded in taking the ingenue to a place she’d never been: the bedroom. Garbo and Shearer took the stereotypes and made them complicated.
In the wake of these complicated women came others, a deluge of indelible stars – Constance Bennett, Ruth Chatterton, Mae Clarke, Claudette Colbert, Marlene Dietrich, Kay Francis, Ann Harding, Jean Harlow, Miriam Hopkins, Dorothy Mackaill, Barbara Stanywyck, Mae West and Loretta Young all came into their own during the pre-Code era. These women pushed the limits and shaped their images along modern lines.
Then, in July 1934, the draconian Production Code became the law in Hollywood and these modern women of the screen were banished, not to be seen again until the code was repealed three decades later.
Mick LaSalle, film critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, takes readers on a tour of pre-Code films and reveals how this was the true golden age of women’s films and how the movies of the pre-Code are still worth watching. The bold, pioneering and complicated women of the pre-Code era are about to take their place in the pantheon of film history, and America is about to reclaim a rich legacy.

The Complex

In 2017, the course of human history was forever altered. A cataclysmic event, which would come to be known simply as The Infection, swept across the globe. The world population was decimated and civilization as it was known came to an end.
Malcolm Evans and his group are thriving in Sanctuary, the island refuge built by the CIA. With the return of a family member they’d long thought dead, old rivalries and betrayals are easy to forget as they settle into building the life they want.
It is only when the most vulnerable of their group are hurt and they are forced to venture to the mainland for supplies that they find themselves caught up in the world of the Complex. Under the leadership of the mysterious Jacob, Malcolm and his group find themselves facing a whole new threat.
They had once thought the virus-infected freaks were their greatest danger until they met the monsters who live in…The Complex.

Complex Network Analysis in Python

Complex Network Analysis in Python: Recognize – Construct – Visualize – Analyze – Interpret by Dmitry Zinoviev
Construct, analyze, and visualize networks with networkx, a Python language module. Network analysis is a powerful tool you can apply to a multitude of datasets and situations. Discover how to work with all kinds of networks, including social, product, temporal, spatial, and semantic networks. Convert almost any real-world data into a complex network—such as recommendations on co-using cosmetic products, muddy hedge fund connections, and online friendships. Analyze and visualize the network, and make business decisions based on your analysis. If you’re a curious Python programmer, a data scientist, or a CNA specialist interested in mechanizing mundane tasks, you’ll increase your productivity exponentially.
Complex network analysis used to be done by hand or with non-programmable network analysis tools, but not anymore! You can now automate and program these tasks in Python. Complex networks are collections of connected items, words, concepts, or people. By exploring their structure and individual elements, we can learn about their meaning, evolution, and resilience.
Starting with simple networks, convert real-life and synthetic network graphs into networkx data structures. Look at more sophisticated networks and learn more powerful machinery to handle centrality calculation, blockmodeling, and clique and community detection. Get familiar with presentation-quality network visualization tools, both programmable and interactive—such as Gephi, a CNA explorer. Adapt the patterns from the case studies to your problems. Explore big networks with NetworKit, a high-performance networkx substitute. Each part in the book gives you an overview of a class of networks, includes a practical study of networkx functions and techniques, and concludes with case studies from various fields, including social networking, anthropology, marketing, and sports analytics.
Combine your CNA and Python programming skills to become a better network analyst, a more accomplished data scientist, and a more versatile programmer.
**What You Need:**
You will need a Python 3.x installation with the following additional modules: Pandas (>=0.18), NumPy (>=1.10), matplotlib (>=1.5), networkx (>=1.11), python-louvain (>=0.5), NetworKit (>=3.6), and generalizesimilarity. We recommend using the Anaconda distribution that comes with all these modules, except for python-louvain, NetworKit, and generalizedsimilarity, and works on all major modern operating systems.

The Complete Works of Aristotle

This digital edition combines, for the first time, both volumes of The Complete Works of Aristotle: The Revised Oxford Translation, which is universally recognized as the standard English version.

The Oxford Translation of Aristotle was originally published in twelve volumes between 1912 and 1954. The revised edition contains the substance of the original translation, slightly emended in light of recent scholarship; three of the original versions have been replaced by new translations; and a new and enlarged selection of fragments has been added. The aim of the translation remains the same: to make the surviving works of Aristotle readily accessible to English-speaking readers.

The Complete Vampire Chronicles 12-Book Bundle

An international bestseller and beloved cultural touchstone, Anne Rice’s classic novel *Interview with the Vampire* starts “where Bram Stoker and the Hollywood versions leave off and penetrates directly to the true fascination of the myth” (*Chicago Tribune*).

An aristocrat in the heady days of pre-revolutionary France who lives to become a rock star in the demonic, shimmering 1980s, Lestat rushes through the centuries in search of others like him, seeking answers to the mystery of his eternal, terrifying existence.

“If you surrender and go with her . . . you have surrendered to enchantment, as in a voluptuous dream.”—*The Boston Globe*

“Frightening, sensual . . . Anne Rice will live on through the ages of literature. . . . To read her is to become giddy as if spinning through the mind of time, to become lightheaded as if our blood is slowly being drained away.”—*San Francisco Chronicle*

“Unrelentingly erotic . . . sometimes beautiful, and always unforgettable.”—*The Washington Post*

“Rice has created universes within universes, traveling back in time as far as ancient, pre-pyramidic Egypt and journeying from the frozen mountain peaks of Nepal to the crowded, sweating streets of southern Florida.”—*Los Angeles Times*

“Fiercely ambitious, nothing less than a complete unnatural history of vampires.”—*The Village Voice*

The Complete Novels of Jane Austen

###
From one of the greatest novelists of the nineteenth century, *The Complete Novels of Jane Austen* collects all of Jane Austen’s novels in a single volume, published in Penguin Classics.
Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen. Here in one volume are her seven great novels: *Sense and Sensibility*, *Pride and Prejudice*, *Mansfield Park*, *Emma*, *Northanger Abbey*, *Persuasion*, and *Lady Susan*. Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, Austen vividly portrays English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close and the nineteenth century began. Each of the novels is a love story and a story about marriage – marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not straightforward romances: ironic, comic and wise, they are masterly evocations of the society Jane Austen observed. This beautiful volume covers the literary career of one of England’s finest prose stylists of any century.
Jane Austen (1775-1817) was famously modest about her own genius but has become one of English literature’s most revered writers. Austen began writing at a young age, embarking on what is possibly her best-known work, *Pride and Prejudice*, at the age of 22. She was the author of *Sense and Sensibility*,* Pride and Prejudice*, *Emma*,* Persuasion*,* Mansfield Park* and *Northanger Abbey*.
If you enjoyed *The Complete Novels of Jane Austen*, you might like Charlotte Brontë’s *Jane Eyre*, also available in Penguin Classics.
‘One of my favourite writers’
Helen Fielding, author of *Bridget Jones’s Diary*
‘You care about the people living between Austen’s pages as intensely as if they were real’
Esther Freud, author of *Hideous Kinky*
‘Jane Austen is a writer who will be with you for a lifetime’
Elizabeth Buchan, author of *Revenge of the Middle Aged Woman*
