Abstract: The film takes place in 1973 during the Yom Kippur War in which Egypt and Syria launched attacks in Sinai and the Golan Heights. The story is told from the perspective of Israeli soldiers. We are led by Weinraub and his friend Ruso on a day that begins with quiet city streets, but ends with death, destruction and devastation of both body and mind. Various scenes are awash in the surreal, as Weinraub's head hangs out over a rescue helicopter's open door, watching with tranquil desperation as the earth passes beneath, the overpowering whir of the blades creating a hypnotic state. It is not a traditional blood, guts and glory film. There are no men in battle, only the rescue crew trying to pick up the broken pieces.

Fascinated by women, he soon hooks up with Elena (Daisy Granados), whose youth transfixes him for a period, until he decides to move on to his next conquest. After being dragged through the courts by Elena's family, who accuse him of rape, Sergio finally wins his freedom. Now in a more reflective mood after his ordeal, he considers what implications the emerging Cuban missile crisis will have for both himself and the island's future.

Abstract: "This prize-winning work offers a major new means of conceptualizing law and legal relations across the world. National laws are placed in the broader context of major legal traditions, those of chthonic (or indigenous) law, Talmudic law, civil law, Islamic law, common law, Hindu law and Asian law. Each tradition is examined in terms of its institutions and substantive law, its founding concepts and methods, its attitudes towards the concept of change, and its teaching on relations with traditions and other peoples. Legal traditions are explained in terms of multivalent and non-conflictual forms of logic and thought." "This book will be invaluable to law students and lawyers engaged in comparative and transnational work, historians, social scientists, and all those interested in legal traditions that underpin the world's major societies."

Abstract: Fresh off of the international success of La Dolce Vita, master director Federico Fellini moved into the realm of self-reflexive autobiography with what is widely believed to be his finest and most personal work. Marcello Mastroianni delivers a brilliant performance as Fellini's alter ego Guido Anselmi, a film director overwhelmed by the large-scale production he has undertaken. He finds himself harangued by producers, his wife, and his mistress while he struggles to find the inspiration to finish his film. The stress plunges Guido into an interior world where fantasy and memory impinge on reality. Fellini jumbles narrative logic by freely cutting from flashbacks to dream sequences to the present until it becomes impossible to pry them apart, creating both a psychological portrait of Guido's interior world and the surrealistic, circus-like exterior world that came to be known as "Felliniesque." 8 1/2 won an Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film, as well as the grand prize at the Moscow Film Festival, and was one of the most influential and commercially successful European art movies of the 1960s, inspiring such later films as Bob Fosse's All That Jazz (1979), Woody Allen's Stardust Memories (1980), and even Lucio Fulci's Italian splatter film Un Gatto nel Cervello (1990).
