One Nation Underground NEW YORK UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

For the half-century duration of the Cold War, the fallout shelter was a curiously American preoccupation. Triggered in 1961 by a hawkish speech by John F. Kennedy, the fallout shelter controversy--"to dig or not to dig," as Business Week put it at the time--forced many Americans to grapple with deeply disturbing dilemmas that went to the very heart of their self-image about what it meant to be an American, an upstanding citizen, and a moral human being. Given the much-touted nuclear threat throughout the 1960s and the fact that 4 out of 5 Americans expressed a preference for nuclear war over living under communism, what's perhaps most striking is how few American actually built backyard shelters. Tracing the ways in which the fallout shelter became an icon of popular culture, Kenneth D. Rose also investigates the troubling issues the shelters raised: Would a post-war world even be worth living in? Would shelter construction send the Soviets a message of national resolve, or rather encourage political and military leaders to think in terms of a "winnable" war? Investigating the role of schools, television, government bureaucracies, civil defense, and literature, and rich in fascinating detail--including a detailed tour of the vast fallout shelter in Greenbriar, Virginia, built to harbor the entire United States Congress in the event of nuclear armageddon--One Nation, Underground goes to the very heart of America's Cold War experience.

Dr Mahen Tampoe's specialty is management, and here he paints a vivid picture of a mismanaged state. Sri Lanka has uncomfortable parallels with Ireland - a nation unified by its conquerors, then divided by sectarian discrimination, internecine strife, suicide bombers and dispossession. But unlike Ireland, Sri Lanka has been plunged into undeserved poverty instead of embracing progress and prosperity. What on earth made Ceylon's newly independent government in the 1950s establish the Buddhist/Sinhalese group as the dominant element, relegating the Tamils of the north, and the English language, to second-class status? Sri Lanka - Divisions and Destiny carefully analyses the country's dilemmas and discusses what is needed to place the island on par with its successful multi-ethnic neighbours, Singapore and Malaysia. In a globalised economy, do all states join the mainstream of wealth creation? Not necessarily, contends the author; some fall by the economic wayside. This elegant and informative work offers pointers for better governance and a brighter destiny for a nation at the crossroads. Mahen Tampoe was born and educated in Sri Lanka, where he has friends and family. He has worked in Europe since 1969 as a business executive, management consultant, lecturer, researcher and writer. His prime interest is the assessment and creation of fruitful relations between people in groups, teams, organisations and political systems. He has published many articles on project management, strategy and the motivation of knowledge workers. He is a qualified accountant, has an MBA and a PhD, and has written books on business, computing and leadership. He has also co-authored a book on strategic management.

Michael Sandel's "Justice: What's the Right Thing to Do?" invites readers of all ages and political persuasions on a journey of moral reflection, and shows how reasoned debate can illuminate our lives. Is it always wrong to lie? Should there be limits to personal freedom? Can killing sometimes be justified? Is the free market fair? What is the right thing to do? Questions like these are at the heart of our lives. In this acclaimed book Michael Sandel - BBC Reith Lecturer and the Harvard professor whose 'Justice' course has become world famous - gives us a lively and accessible introduction to the intersection of politics and philosophy. He helps us think our way through such hotly contested issues as equal rights, democracy, euthanasia, abortion and same-sex marriage, as well as the ethical dilemmas we face every day. "One of the most popular teachers in the world". ("Observer"). "Enormously refreshing...Michael Sandel transforms moral philosophy by putting it at the heart of civic debate". ("New Statesman"). "One of the world's most interesting political philosophers". ("Guardian"). "Spellbinding". ("The Nation"). Michael Sandel is the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Professor of Government at the University of Harvard. Sandel's legendary 'Justice' course is one of the most popular and influential at Harvard.

The Castle Wordsworth

FilozoficznaPowieść zagranicznaPsychologiczna

Kafka's final novel was written during 1922, when the tuberculosis that was to kill him was already at an advanced stage. Fragmentary and unfinished, it perhaps never could have been finished; perhaps the tensions between K., the Castle and the village, K.'s struggle for acceptance or recognition by the mysterious Castle authorities or by the people of the village, never will and never can be resolved.Like much of Kafka's work, The Castle is enigmatic and polyvalent. Is it an allegory of the sprawling Austro-Hungarian Empire as it disintegrates into modern nation states, or a quasi-feudal system giving way to a new freedom for the subject? Is it the search by a central European Jew for acceptance and integration into a dominant culture? Is it a spiritual quest for grace or salvation, or an individual's struggle between his sense of independence and his need for approval? Is K. is an opportunist, a victim, or an outsider battling against an elusive authority? Is the Castle a benign source of authority or a whimsical system of control?Like K., the reader is presented with conflicting perspectives that rehearse the existential dilemmas and uncertainties of literary modernity.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Dr. Ian K. Smith's Shred is the answer to every dieter's biggest dilemmas: how to lose that last twenty pounds? How to push through that frustrating plateau? What to do when nothing else is working? Here, Smith has created a program that uses all he knows about strategic dieting in one plan. Shred combines a low GI diet, meal spacing, and meal replacements. Shredders will eat constantly (every three and a half hours!): four meals or meal replacements (soups, smoothies, shakes) and three snacks a day, over a six week program. Shred also introduces Dr. Ian's concept of "Diet Confusion". Like varying workouts to achieve muscle confusion and greater results, Diet Confusion tricks the body and revs up its performance by switching up food intake to boost metabolism. Shred has been a New York Times bestseller for twenty-seven weeks, six of them at No. 1, with a renewed burst of sales after Dr. Ian's and Shred's appearance on Katie Couric and in People. Thousands have joined Dr. Ian's Shredder Nation, losing an average of four inches, two sizes or twenty pounds in six weeks. No matter how often or how unsuccessfully you've dieted before, Shred: The Revolutionary Diet will change your life.
