"Featuring dozens of battle scenarios based on those found in the movie trilogy, as well as a new battle system, handheld warfare pitting the good vs. the bad (and ugly) comes to the GBA in The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age. From the beginning, players will have a difficult choice to make: they must take a side, deciding between the Fellowship, with its quest to save Middle-earth, and Sauron, with his quest for complete control and ultimate darkness. The game features a tactics-based combat system that fosters military strategy, and turn-based battle designed to allow players to command dozens of units and define the rules of engagement. Over 30 battles from the movie trilogy are included, such as the Siege of Minas Tirith, and the Fall of Osgiliat"--AllGame Guide

J. R. R. Tolkien is arguably the most influential and popular of all fantasy writers. Although his position and status have long been controversial, his popularity has not faded. His best-loved works, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, have sold millions of copies around the world and continue to enthral readers young and old. This lively collection of original essays examines The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in the light of children's literature theory and approaches, as well as from adult and fantasy literature perspectives. Exploring issues such as gender, language, worldbuilding, and ecocriticism, the volume also places Tolkien's works in the context of a range of visual media, including Peter Jackson's film adaptations.

A philologist and medieval scholar, J. R. R. Tolkien never intended to challenge traditional ideas about literature or to write a work that would be studied in colleges around the world. He set out only to write a good story. But his The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings unexpectedly gained cult status in the 1960s. Today, the readership for Tolkien's absorbing secondary world - filled with monsters, magic, adventure, sacrifice, and heroism - continues to grow. Part 1 of this volume, "Materials, " introduces instructors to the rich array of resources available for teaching Tolkien, including editions and criticism of his fiction and scholarship, historical material on his life and times, audiovisual materials, and film adaptations of his fiction. The essays in part 2, "Approaches, " help instructors introduce students to critical debates around Tolkien's work, its sources, its influence, and its connection to ecology, religion, and science.

A philologist and medieval scholar, J. R. R. Tolkien never intended to write immensely popular literature that would challenge traditional ideas about the nature of great literature and that was worthy of study in colleges across the world. He set out only to write a good story, the kind of story he and his friends would enjoy reading. In The Hobbit and in The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien created an entire world informed by his vast knowledge of mythology, languages, and medieval literature. In the 1960s, his books unexpectedly gained cult status with a new generation of young, countercultural readers. Today, the readership for Tolkien's absorbing secondary world-filled with monsters, magic, adventure, sacrifice, and heroism-continues to grow. Part 1 of this volume, "Materials, " introduces instructors to the rich array of resources available for teaching Tolkien, including editions and criticism of his fiction and scholarship, historical material on his life and times, audiovisual materials, and film adaptations of his fiction. The essays in part 2, "Approaches, " help instructors introduce students to critical debates around Tolkien's work, its sources, its influence, and its connection to ecology, religion, and science. Contributors draw on interdisciplinary approaches to outline strategies for teaching Tolkien in a wide variety of classroom contexts.

This is a book on the glory days and tragic end of college boxing. "Lords of the Ring" revives the exciting era - now forgotten - when college boxing attracted huge crowds, outdrawing the professional bouts. On the same night in 1940 when Joe Louis defended his heavyweight crown before 11,000 fans in New York's Madison Square Garden, collegiate boxers battled before 15,000 fans in Madison...Wisconsin. "Lords of the Ring" tells the whole extraordinary story of how and why this popular college sport abruptly ended in 1960, based on dozens of interviews and extensive examination of newspaper microfilm, boxing records, and memorabilia.

Peter Jackson's epic trilogy, the biggest film event of the 21st century, turned the best-selling book of the 20th century into a popular, critical and financial success all over again. This comprehensive collection draws together twenty-five essays on the making, the meaning and the reception of "The Lord of the Rings". The collection begins with a focus on the business of the event film, before moving into critical chapters on techniques and meanings ranging from music to spirituality. The third section offers essays on multimedia products associated with the films and concludes with chapters on their audiences. The book also contains a dossier of reviews, interviews, production details and box-office returns.No single author could offer the depth and range of coverage brought by this team of specialists drawn from business, communication, geography and music as well as film and media studies, who share the added advantage of enjoying a unique proximity to the setting of the movie in Aotearao New Zealand. More closely integrated, and more attuned to the global marketplace than the older blockbusters, the event film, with its attention-grabbing pitch for the status of news, will be one of the most influential media forms of the coming years. These meticulous essays combine with Peter Jackson's remarkable trilogy to form a unique entry to the study of 21st century media. A book for general readers, researchers, teachers and students at all levels with an interest in "The Lord of the Rings" and in contemporary Hollywood.
