Toward the end of this book, Powell (Univ. of Wales) sums up his approach as proceeding from ideals expressed to realities suffered.' A striking example of this is the chapter titled 'The Theft of Pietas,' in which the author argues that Virgil, unable to credit Octavian with pietas, creates the image of a pius ancestor, Aeneas, the incarnation of this virtue, which would then be transferred by association to Octavian. Powell himself is much more partial toward Sextus Pompeius--witness Sextus Pompeius, which he edited with Kathryn Welch (2002)--a fierce opponent of Octavian who styled himself Magnus Pius. One of Powells objectives here is to shift the focus of Virgilian studies from individual works to the whole oeuvre and to see one intention in all of them, to defend the cause of Octavian-Augustus. Although he accepts the premises behind analyses of Virgils works based on genre and architecture, Powell sees an overarching political structure. In elaborating this thesis he makes good use of neglected ancient historians of the period--Suetonius, Appian, Dio Cassius. His countercurrent argument is bound to stir up much controversy among traditional Virgilian scholars, which is all to the good. An absorbing read. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through faculty. -- C. Fantazzi, East Carolina University Choice September 2008 Powell is not afraid to use modern parallels that, among other things, demonstrate clearly to a contemporary audience how knowledge of the timing of an event can inform our understanding of it and of a writers' reasons to include or exclude it. He writes in a lucid and attractive style, displaying his admiration for Virgil on every page...' -- D.E. Hill Greece and Rome 2009 Radicalises the study of politics in Augustan poetry...A book rich in arguments which opens new fields to explore.' -- Frank Wittchow Gymnasium This stimulating volume seeks to put the party politics back into Virgils oeuvre...Powell rightly concludes that the success of the Augustan project has concealed the partisan and prophetic aspect of Virgils political stance...' -- Stephen Harrison Mnemosyne '...the contribution of this book lies above all in the compelling argument that the political and military history of the 30s BC is more important for an understanding of all three of Virgil's major works than it is often taken to be... Powell's Virgil is unashamedly pro-Octavian, pro-Augustus... This is not a fashionable approach to Virgil, and doubtless many will resist Powell's political reading. But it will be impossible in future to ignore Powell's careful and detailed arguments for the centrality of the historical context...' -- Philip Hardie and Julia Dyson Hejduk Vergilian Society Prize Committee citation 'Powell's analysis is acute and his reading is coherent and cogent. This is a book full of interest and surprises on virtually every page...' -- John Godwin Journal of Classics Teaching

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book for FileMaker "users" wanting to become "developers" 5. Januar 2007
Von Roger Jacques - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
When choosing a book of this type, it's important to realize who the target audience is.

The overwhelming majority of FileMaker Pro users are beginners in database design and development. Most of these people have either read the manual or figured out the basics on their own, and can wield FMP as an office productivity tool just fine. (If you are purchasing this book, and have not read the FMP manuals, I suggest that you do so, they are well written, not painfully long, and quite useful to get started.)

This book is aimed at helping people get to the next step; from office productivity user to fledgling developer, and it serves that purpose very well.

If you want to learn more about design and scripting in FMP, then buy this book. After you've mastered this material, go for some of the more advanced texts out there.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Outdated!!! 19. Oktober 2011
Von CEPUAmity - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
We purchased the FileMaker v.11 from Amazon, and MISTAKENLY accepted their recommendation to purchase a "package" consisting of two books, in addition to the software. Well, the software is v.11, and the "Dummies" book talks exclusively about v.8! Somewhere between v.8 and v.11, there must have been a sea change in the software, because the "Dummies" book is of ABSOLUTELY no use!
As we know, there's practically no (usable) documentation coming with software packages these days, and the Dummies books are usually of great help. Here, though, somebody at Amazon was apparently not watching the store.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Filemaker Pro 27. September 2011
Von Robert F. Ritchie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Brace yourself. To find this manual helpful rather than frustrating, you must already know all about it and be familiar with the undefined jargon. Furthermore it is not totally applicable to the most recent version of Filemaker (Version 11). Some very important stuff is totally missing. Until you can grasp the privately defined meaning of words like record, script, database, etc. you will be constantly wondering what is being referred to, spending an inordinate amount of time trying to find out.

This is an exceptionally complex program and apparently can be beaten into working well, with time and a great deal of patience. It is unfortunate that this Dummies does not live up to the usual Dummies format of talking to everyone who reads it rather than omitting the novice from the audience.

There is no Glossary and the Table of Contents is where the trouble starts.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Outdated FIlemaker manual with no relevance to newer versions 14. November 2012
Von cafnated - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
I find it hard to believe that this is the latest version of the Filemaker Pro "dummies" book. The latest version discussed in this book is version 8. Filemaker is now on version 12, and 12 is very different than 8. I thought there must still be many similarities between the versions if this book is still on the market, but there aren't, making this book impossible to use if you are trying to learn the newest version. Please don't waste your money like I did

2.0 von 5 Sternen Disappointing 16. Oktober 2009
Von Charles Conlin - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this book to learn scripting, but does not have enough on scripting. The FileMaker Pro Bible & the Missing Manual are better.
On second thought, if you are an absolute beginner at scripting, it might be good.
