D-Day - the Last of the Liberators Helion & Company Limited

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The commemoration of D-Day holds a special place in the hearts and minds of the British people. Each June some of the last remaining veterans make the journey back to Normandy, with its memorials and the spine-tingling tranquility of the war cemeteries, there to remember those who never came home. D-Day: The Last of the Liberators is a collection of portraits of some of the last surviving Normandy veterans. It records in a unique way the stories of these remarkable individuals and their emotional but dignified return to the locations, in many cases the exact spot, which are tied to their most profound personal memories of the campaign; places where they saw action or were wounded, where they experienced instances of miraculous chance or where they witnessed their friends being taken away from them through the horror of battle. The significance of these photographs cannot be overlooked. As time takes its toll, fewer and fewer veterans make the journey back to Normandy. The 70th anniversary in 2014 will mark the end of the Normandy Veterans Association. After the commemorations, the association will close its doors; its branches will wrap up and all but the private pilgrimages to the beaches will end, eventually leaving the duty to remember those fallen comrades to their descendants and the wider population of a still grateful nation. This is not an account of the strategic challenges of carrying out the Normandy landings, nor the story of a battalion or company embroiled in its own struggle for survival. Those accounts exist and their value is enormous. This book is different: it focuses on the individual and is a record of the experience at the most personal level, viewed with the benefit of seven decades of perspective. These photographs, taken during the 68th and 69th anniversaries, are a record of some of the final visits these brave and dignified men and women will make to the places that imprinted themselves indelibly on their lives. It makes the link, so easily lost, between the young people who faced those challenges and the individuals they became through those experiences - and who went on to rebuild a shattered world with the conviction that it must never happen again. The subjects of D-Day: The Last of the Liberators are the representatives of this remarkable generation, their stories told in the accompanying text, but etched on their faces as they are confronted, perhaps for the final time, by stark memories from a haunting past. These portraits are a thank you to the British veterans of D-Day, because they risked so much to give us the lives and freedom we enjoy today.

Idea of Justice Penguin

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From Nobel Prize-winning economist Amartya Sen, "The Idea of Justice" is a refreshing alternative approach to mainstream theories of justice. Is justice an ideal, for ever beyond our grasp, or something that may actually guide our practical decisions and enhance our lives? At the heart of Sen's argument is his insistence on the role of public reason in establishing what can make societies less unjust. But there are always choices to be made between alternative assessments of what is reasonable, and competing positions can each be well defended. Rather than rejecting these pluralities, we should use them to construct a theory of justice that can accommodate divergent points of view. Sen also inspiringly shows how the principles of justice in the modern world must avoid parochialism and address vital questions of global injustice. The breadth of vision, intellectual acuity and striking humanity of one of the world's leading public intellectuals have never been more clearly shown than in this remarkable book. "A major advance in contemporary thinking". (John Gray, "Literary Review"). "The most important contribution to the subject since John Rawls' "A Theory of Justice"". (Hilary Putnam, Harvard University). "Sen writes with dry wit, a feel for history and a relaxed cosmopolitanism ...a conviction that economists and philosophers are in business to improve the world burns on almost every page". ("Economist"). 'Sen's magisterial critique of the dominant mode of liberal political philosophy confirms him as the English-speaking world's pre-eminent public intellectual". ("New Statesman" Books of the Decade). Amartya Sen is Lamont University Professor at Harvard. He won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1998 and was Master of Trinity College, Cambridge 1998-2004. His most recent books are "The Argumentative Indian", "Identity and Violence" and "Development as Freedom". His books have been translated into thirty languages.

What really goes on in the mind of an overweight person? The inspirational novel Diet King takes a whimsical look into the world of Peter Wells and his emotional twenty-five-year journey through dieting hell. When young Peter Wells embarks on a field trip with his third-grade class, his problems begin when he hurls insults at a large-sized classmate. In high school, Wells cuts gym classes and rapidly gains weight. His parents and his school counselor send him to a drill sergeant/psychologist who believes that exercise will help cure Wells of his poor eating habits. Wells begins a rigorous and lengthy pilgrimage to lose weight by attending diet meetings with a reluctant brother, by challenging an intolerant corporate world, and by dealing with an overzealous vegetarian hostess during a weekend retreat. He begins a low-carb diet and watches his ailing, overweight father request fast food from his hospital bed. After facing a frightening close call with his own health, Wells begins to question his choices. In Diet King, Peter Wells must make a life-changing decision-does he want to "eat to live" or "live to eat"?
