A memoir and book of mourning, a grandson&#8217;s attempt to reconcile his own uncontested citizenship with his grandfather&#8217;s lifelong struggle. Award-winning poet Brandon Shimoda has crafted a lyrical portrait of his paternal grandfather, Midori Shimoda, whose life&#8212;child migrant, talented photographer, suspected enemy alien and spy, desert wanderer, American citizen&#8212;mirrors the arc of Japanese America in the twentieth century. In a series of pilgrimages, Shimoda records the search to find his grandfather, and unfolds, in the process, a moving elegy on memory and forgetting. Praise for The Grave on the Wall: 'Shimoda brings his poetic lyricism to this moving and elegant memoir, the structure of which reflects the fragmentation of memories. &#8230; It is at once wistful and devastating to see Midori's life come full circle &#8230; In between is a life with tragedy, love, and the horrors unleashed by the atomic bomb.'&#8212;Booklist, starred review 'In a weaving meditation, Brandon Shimoda pens an elegant eulogy for his grandfather Midori, yet also for the living, we who survive on the margins of graveyards and rituals of our own making.'&#8212;Karen Tei Yamashita, author of Letters to Memory 'Sometimes a work of art functions as a dream. At other times, a work of art functions as a conscience. In the tradition of Juan Rulfo&#8217;s Pedro Páramo, Brandon Shimoda's The Grave on the Wall is both. It is also the type of fragmented reckoning only America could instigate.'&#8212;Myriam Gurba, author of Mean &#8220;Within this haunted sepulcher built out of silence, loss, and grief&#8212;its walls shadowed by the traumas of racial oppression and violence&#8212;a green river lined with peach trees flows beneath a bridge that leads back to the grandson.'&#8212;Jeffrey Yang, author of Hey, Marfa: Poems 'It is part dream, part memory, part forgetting, part identity. It is a remarkable exploration of how citizenship is forged by the brutal US imperial forces&#8212;through slave labor, forced detention, indiscriminate bombing, historical amnesia and wall. If someone asked me, Where are you from? I would answer, From The Grave on the Wall.'&#8212;Don Mee Choi, author of Hardly War 'Shimoda intercedes into the absences, gaps and interstices of the present and delves the presence of mystery. This mystery is part of each of us. Shimoda outlines that mystery in silence and silhouette, in objects left behind at site-specific travels to Japan and in the disparate facts of his grandpa&#8217;s FBI file. Gratitude to Brandon Shimoda for taking on the mystery which only literature accepts as the basic challenge.'&#8212;Sesshu Foster, author of City of the Future 'Shimoda is a mystic writer &#8230; He puts what breaches itself (always) onto the page, so that the act of writing becomes akin to paper-making: an attention to fibers, coagulation, texture and the water-fire mixtures that signal irreversible alteration or change. &#8230; he has written a book that touches the bottom of my own soul.'&#8212;Bhanu Kapil, author of Ban en Banlieue

The explosive popularity of the Internet as a business tool has created a new type of economy, which is called Technology-Enabled Information Economy (TEI). Impacts and Risk Assessment of Technology for Internet Security Enabled Information Small-Medium Enterprises (TEISMES) investigates TEI, discovering the opportunities and challenges presented by TEI to the new form of small medium enterprises (SME). This emerging economy is bringing with it new forms of TEI intermediation, online businesses, virtual supply chains, rapidly changing internet-electronic commerce technologies, increasing knowledge intensity, and unprecedented sensitivity of the time-to-market by customers. Impacts and Risk Assessment of Technology for Internet Security Enabled Information Small-Medium Enterprises (TEISMES) also identifies ways of minimizing risk liability of TEISME business operations as a result of their dependence on TEI (Internet-eC). The rapid evolution and spread of information technology (IT) during the last few years is challenging SMEs, governments and internet security professionals to rethink the very nature of risk exposure. Impacts and Risk Assessment of Technology for Internet Security Enabled Information Small-Medium Enterprises (TEISMES) is designed for a professional audience of researchers and practitioners in industry. This book is also suitable for graduate-level students in computer science. TOC:Preface.- Research Overview and Technologies for Internet Security.- Impacts of TEI on SMEs.- Risk Assessment of TEI on TEISME.- Methodology.- Analysis of Results.- Critical Evaluation and Discussion.- Conclusion.- Index.

This CD-ROM, with full color digital facsimiles and documentary texts of Oxford, Oriel College, MS 79 (O), constitutes the third volume of The Piers Plowman Electronic Archive, an ambitious international collaborative project devoted to electronic publication of all the medieval and renaissance witnesses to William Langland's Piers Plowman. The Oriel manuscript is representative of early fifteenth-century manuscripts of Piers. The color facsimile images of every page in the manuscript are JPEG reductions of high resolution TIFF files scanned from 35 mm color slides. Every image of each text is hypertextually linked to the edited text which is itself presented in four different views: a diplomatic type-facsimile; a scribal text which includes iconic indications of scribal error; a critical text with lapsus calami corrected; an AllTags view that shows all of the editorial interventions on one screen. Complex boolean and simple text searches permit complex manipulation of the text in all four views. In addition to the facing page text and facsimiles, the browser permits expansion of the color images and intricate manipulation of color relations.
