'Only with the greatest of simplifications, for the sake of convenience, can we say Africa. In reality, except as a geographical term, Africa doesn't exist'. Ryszard Kapuscinski has been writing about the people of Africa throughout his career. In a study that avoids the official routes, palaces and big politics, he sets out to create an account of post-colonial Africa seen at once as a whole and as a location that wholly defies generalised explanations. It is both a sustained meditation on the mosaic of peoples and practises we call 'Africa', and an impassioned attempt to come to terms with humanity itself as it struggles to escape from foreign domination, from the intoxications of freedom, from war and from politics as theft. The Beginning: Collision, Ghana 1958 More than anything, one is struck by the light. Light everywhere. Brightness everywhere. Everywhere, the sun. Just yesterday, an autumnal London was drenched in rain. The airplane drenched in rain. A cold, wind, darkness. But here, from the morning

Excerpt from The History of a Crime UnscruimlOHS Ringsters Plot to Destroy aY011115? American Citizen by the Methods of the Mafia. His is the History of A Crime, A tale of treachery, corruption and cowardice. A new condition of political ethics, the patentor of which is David Martin, the man of the dollar brand, and the prospective enjoyers of whose emoluments, beside himself, are Senator Charles A. Porter, the constructor of the leaks in the Queen Lane Reservoir, and City Solictor Charles F.Warwick. It is a revelation regarding the making of the Mayor of the great city of Philadelphia, contained within the lines ot authoritative information. To thoroughly and clearly understand the present unprecedented condition of political affairs in this city it is necessary to go back to the time when there was a general influx of Mayoralty candidates in the municipal arena. The most prominent, even at that early date, was Senator Boies Penrose. The fierce and never-abating battle which he made against the autocratic power of the Building Commission brought him the support of the best elements of his party and of the people at large. He made his contest regardless of any personal power in the organization of which he was a member. At this time also Senator Charles A. Porter, who has amassed a large fortune through big city contracts, was promising his fealty to three candidates; City Solicitor Warwick, Director of Public Works Windrim, and City Controller Thompson. To each of these he whispered his faithfulness, and each one believed he was the chosen son of the contractor-boss. In this connection let it be borne in mind that City Solicitor Warwick drew the contracts by which Porter kept his four feet in the public trough; that Director Windrim made the changes in the specifications regarding the building of the Queen Lane Reservoir which have led to a public scandal, and that City Controller Thompson permitted payments of money upon that public work before they were actually due. But one man of the three could be the beneficiary of these acts His name has been recorded. Graham Rudely Awakened. At this time also District Attorney Graham was living in the fatuous belief that he enjoyed the favor of David Martin and would be selected as the Republican candidate for Mayor. To him one day there came a rude awakening, and, with mutterings upon his lips over Martins treachery, he withdrew from the field in the interest of his friend. City Solicitor Warwick, with the understanding that the latter would have the full and earnest support of Mayor Stuart and all the power that is back of the Chief Magistrate of Philadelphia. The Iayor, however, proved a reed and bowed to the wind, and, for the time being apparently, Warwick abandoned the field, and with downcast mien admitted his undoing.

What We Owe Iraq - 2212825672

What We Owe Iraq Princeton University Press

Inne 1

What do we owe Iraq? America is up to its neck in nation building - but the public debate, focused on getting the troops home, devotes little attention to why we are building a new Iraqi nation, what success would look like, or what principles should guide us. "What We Owe Iraq" sets out to shift the terms of the debate, acknowledging that we are nation building to protect ourselves, while demanding that we put the interests of the people being governed - whether in Iraq, Afghanistan, Kosovo, or elsewhere - ahead of our own when we exercise power over them. Noah Feldman argues that to prevent nation building from turning into a paternalistic, colonialist charade, we urgently need a new, humbler approach. Nation builders should focus on providing security, without arrogantly claiming any special expertise in how successful nation-states should be made. Drawing on his personal experiences in Iraq as a constitutional adviser, Feldman offers enduring insights into the power dynamics between the American occupiers and the Iraqis, and tackles issues, such as Iraqi elections, the prospect of successful democratization, and the way home. Elections do not end the occupier's responsibility. Unless asked to leave, we must resist the temptation of a military pullout before a legitimately elected government can maintain order and govern effectively. But, elections that create a legitimate democracy are also the only way a nation builder can put itself out of business and - eventually - send its troops home. Feldman's new afterword brings the Iraq story up-to-date since the book's original publication in 2004, and asks whether the United States has acted ethically in pushing the political process in Iraq, while failing to control the security situation; it also revisits the question of when, and how, to withdraw.

Stalin, Vol. II Penguin Pr

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Pulitzer Prize-finalist Stephen Kotkin has written the definitive biography of Joseph Stalin, from collectivization and the Great Terror to the conflict with Hitler's Germany that is the signal event of modern world history In 1929, Joseph Stalin, having already achieved dictatorial power over the vast Soviet Empire, formally ordered the systematic conversion of the world's largest peasant economy into "socialist modernity," otherwise known as collectivization, regardless of the cost. What it cost, and what Stalin ruthlessly enacted, transformed the country and its ruler in profound and enduring ways. Building and running a dictatorship, with life and death power over hundreds of millions, made Stalin into the uncanny figure he became. Stephen Kotkin's Stalin: Waiting for Hitler, 1929-1941 is the story of how a political system forged an unparalleled personality and vice versa. The wholesale collectivization of some 120 million peasants necessitated levels of coercion that were extreme even for Russia, and the resulting mass starvation elicited criticism inside the party even from those Communists committed to the eradication of capitalism. But Stalin did not flinch. By 1934, when the Soviet Union had stabilized and socialism had been implanted in the countryside, praise for his stunning anti-capitalist success came from all quarters. Stalin, however, never forgave and never forgot, with shocking consequences as he strove to consolidate the state with a brand new elite of young strivers like himself. Stalin's obsessions drove him to execute nearly a million people, including the military leadership, diplomatic and intelligence officials, and innumerable leading lights in culture. While Stalin revived a great power, building a formidable industrialized military, the Soviet Union was effectively alone and surrounded by perceived enemies. The quest for security would bring Soviet Communism to a shocking and improbable pact with Nazi Germany. But that bargain would not unfold as envisioned. The lives of Stalin and Hitler, and the fates of their respective dictatorships, drew ever closer to collision, as the world hung in the balance. Stalin: Waiting for Hitler, 1929-1941 is a history of the world during the build-up to its most fateful hour, from the vantage point of Stalin's seat of power. It is a landmark achievement in the annals of historical scholarship, and in the art of biography.

Let me introduce myself. You know me somewhat, but not well. I would like to change that now. I want to show you who I am, and what I do. Once I do this, I hope you will look at me as a friend. Then - if you wish - we can do many great things together. Who am I? What do I do? I live half within you, half beyond you. The part of me that is in you occupies what people call the unconscious. From here, I speak to you. I send you messages. These messages you think of as ideas, impulses. I make suggestions to you. You choose to follow or ignore them. I advise you. You decide whether you like my advice or not. In addition, I exist beyond you, in the world around you. I am in the people you meet. I am in the celebrities you hear about. I am in books you read and music you enjoy. I am in plant and animal life. From all around you, I send you messages. I show you different styles of living, different ways to conduct yourself. I bring you new things to look at, new things to admire - things you might even want for yourself. An ideal Everything you do, every word you speak, starts with a thought. This thought is a force. It has a power to make you act in a certain way. Even those thoughts that do not result in action, thoughts that just pass through your head, have an importance. They affect your personality in subtle but crucial ways. What provokes such thoughts? There are a few such motivating forces. I am one of them. Pictures My job is to draw pictures in your mind. These pictures combine to form a portrait, a model of the person you want to be. You travel through life, and you collect such pictures. Step by step, you develop an image of an ideal person living in an ideal world. The values and goals of this image, of this model, are values and goals you need. They are the building blocks of your ideal. Introducing you to these values and goals is my job. For instance as a young child, you see a firefighter. He sports shiny boots and yellow helmet. Expertly, he kills a roaring fire. This sight inspires you. For days afterwards, you play 'firefighter'. You destroy great infernos. You boldly save lives. This game, this fantasy is my work. Here I introduce you to qualities such as Bravery, Skill, Public service, etc. Then, as you mature, I shuffle these pictures. I show you heroes who are more complex, more rounded, more human. I mix for you the features of a number of people - the competence of one colleague, the friendliness of another, the stamina of a favored sportsman, the appeal of a special teacher, the wealth of a top broker, the glamour of a famous artist. To this, I add historical and even fictional personalities. I spice your view with insights from the natural world. The strength of the lion stirs you. The grace of the deer intrigues you. The beauty of a flower, the calm of a forest, the power of a storm, all enchant you.

Most people feel like they know themselves pretty well. But what if you could know yourself just a little bit better-and with this small improvement, get a big payoff...not just in your career, but in your life? Research shows that self-awareness - knowing who we are and how others see us - is the foundation for high performance, smart choices, and lasting relationships. There's just one problem: most people don't see themselves quite as clearly as they could. Fortunately, reveals organizational psychologist Tasha Eurich, self-awareness is a surprisingly developable skill. Integrating hundreds of studies with her own research and work in the Fortune 500 world, she shows us what it really takes to better understand ourselves on the inside - and how to get others to tell us the honest truth about how we come across. Through stories of people who've made dramatic gains in self-awareness, she offers surprising secrets, techniques and strategies to help readers do the same - and how to use this insight to be more fulfilled, confident, and successful in life and in work. In INSIGHT, you'll learn: The 7 types of self-knowledge that self-aware people possess. The 2 biggest invisible roadblocks to self-awareness. Why approaches like therapy and journaling don't always lead to true insight How to stop your confidence-killing habits and learn to love who you are. How benefit from mindfulness without uttering a single mantra. Why other people don't tell us the truth about ourselves - and how to find out what they really think. How to deepen our insight into our passions, gifts, and the blind spots that could be holding us back. How to hear critical feedback without losing your mojo. Why the people with the most power can often be the least-self-aware, and how smart leaders avoid this trap. The 3 building blocks for self-aware teams. How to deal with delusional bosses, clients, and coworkers.

The influence of physical and chemical processes occurring in the weathered Opole marls on the geotechnical parameters Politechnika Rzeszowska

BUDOWNICTWO

Marl belongs to soils which undergo continuous structural changes under the influence of external factors. In view of the fact that thee processes run very rapidly, the usefulness of the marl subsoil for building purposes is subjected to continuous changes in time. The absence of the worked-out research method for such a type of soils makes any proper classification and determination of g,eoteehnical characteristics difficult [ 7, 9_ 13, 17, 36. 39]. Comparative analysis of Opole marls weathering profile allows to affirm occurring of zones comparable to ones given in papers [10, 11, 37]. In Opole marls occur: solid (fresh) rock. slightly weathered rock, moderately weathered rock, highly weathered rock and completely weathered rock which lies just under the humus. In principle, it lacks of cohesive soils layer in the Opole marls profile beside one enclave where packet of substantial thickness occurs consisted mainly of illite clays. Opole marls occupy almost whole area just under soil layer and it decides on the exceptional sensitivity to precipitation influence in contrast to other regions where commonly above marls occurs covering of clayey weathering ?r clay [11, 37]. In this monograph investigations of the weathered rock has been given for the reason of occurring it close by humus layer and possibilities of using it as foundation have been analysed. This weathered rock is subjected to softening and wetting on building sites what results in serious difficulties with people and equipment moving and among practicing engineers became established view that weathered Opole marls are nonbearing subsoil and should be remove. Because of it buildings were mostly founded on the ground changed in place of weathering, i.e. on loose ground, removed sometimes even to G meters. Furthermore, during the investigations of marls eluvium, where it is impossible to draw samples of undisturbed structure and its granulometric composition is very differentiated, the investigations "in situ" are of decisive importance. The results obtained from them show the geotechnical properties of marls better than laboratory tests which from necessity concern the fractional medium. Spis treści: 1. INTRODUCTION     2.

Bridges Oxford University Press

Bridges touch all our lives - every day we are likely to cross a bridge, or go under one. How many of us stop to consider how the bridge stands up and what sort of people designed and built something so strong? Bridge building is a magnificent example of the practical and every day use of science. However, the story of bridges goes beyond science and technology, and involves issues relating to artistic and cultural development. After all, bridges are built by people, for people. Bridges can be icons for whole cities; just consider New York's Brooklyn Bridge, London's Tower Bridge, and Sydney's Harbour Bridge. Such bridges can be considered functional public art, as they have the power to delight or be an eyesore. David Blockley explains how to read a bridge, in all its different forms, design, and construction, and the way the forces flow through arches and beams. He combines the engineering of how bridges stand up with the cultural, aesthetic, and historical importance they hold. Drawing on examples of particular bridges from around the world, he also looks in detail at the risk engineers take when building bridges, and examines why things sometimes go wrong.

""THE SORCERER'S RING has all the ingredients for an instant success: plots, counterplots, mystery, valiant knights, and blossoming relationships replete with broken hearts, deception and betrayal. It will keep you entertained for hours, and will satisfy all ages. Recommended for the permanent library of all fantasy readers." --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos In A REIGN OF STEEL (BOOK #11 IN THE SORCERER'S RING), Gwendolyn must protect her people as she finds King's Court under siege. She strives to evacuate them from the Ring-but there is one problem: her people refuse to leave. As a power struggle ensues, Gwen finds her queenship under challenge for the first time-while the greatest threat to the Ring looms. Behind the McClouds lie the threat of Romulus and his dragons, who, with the Shield destroyed, embark on a catastrophic invasion, nothing left to stand between them and the complete annihilation of the Ring. Romulus, with Luanda at his side, is unstoppable while the moon lasts, and Gwen must fight for survival-for herself, for her baby, and for her people-amidst an epic battle of dragons, and of men. Kendrick leads the Silver in a valiant battle, and he is joined by Elden and the new Legion recruits, along with his brother Godfrey, who surprises everyone, including himself, with his acts of valor. But even so, it may not all be enough. Thor, meanwhile, embarks on the quest of his life in the Land of the Druids, trekking across a fearsome and magical land, a land unlike any other, with magical rules out of its own. Crossing this land will require every ounce of strength and training he has, will force him to dig deeper within, to become the great warrior-and Druid-he was meant to be. As he encounters monsters and challenges unlike ever before, he will have to lay down his life to try to reach his mother. Erec and Alistair journey to the Southern Isles, where they are greeted by all of his people, including his competitive brother and envious sister. Erec has a dramatic final meeting with his father, as the island prepares for him to ascend the throne as King. But in the Southern Isles, one must fight for the right to be King, and in an epic battle, Erec will be tested as never before. In a dramatic twist, we learn that treachery hides even here, in this place of noble and great warriors. Reece, embattled and surrounded on the Upper Isles, must fight for his life after his vengeance on Tirus. Desperate, he finds himself united with Stara, each wary of the other, yet untied in a quest to survive-one that will culminate in an epic battle at sea and will threaten the entire island. Will Gwen cross the sea to safety? Will Romulus destroy the Ring? Will Reece and Stara be together? Will Erec rise as King? Will Thor find his mother? What will become of Guwayne? Will anyone be left alive? With its sophisticated world-building and characterization, A REIGN OF STEEL is an epic tale of friends and lovers, of rivals and suitors, of knights and dragons, of intrigues and political machinations, of coming of age, of broken hearts, of deception, ambition and betrayal. It is a tale of honor and courage, of fate and destiny, of sorcery. It is a fantasy that brings us into a world we will never forget, and which will appeal to all ages and genders. "Grabbed my attention from the beginning and did not let go....This story is an amazing adventure that is fast paced and action packed from the very beginning. There is not a dull moment to be found." --Paranormal Romance Guild {regarding Turned} "
