The author and every male member of his immediate family served in the Vietnam war. In 1988, his older brother, Elmo, died from Agent Orange-related cancers linked to his service as a Swift Boat commander during the Vietnam war. In a bitter irony, it was the actions of his father, Admiral Elmo R. Zumwalt, Jr., in ordering the spraying of Agent Orange when he commanded all US naval forces in Vietnam that sealed his brother's fate. People react differently to grief. For the author, it turned to animosity, directed against not only the war but also the enemy against whom we had fought. In 1994, traveling to Vietnam for the first time since the war, he met with Vietnamese leaders to discuss the Agent Orange issue. In doing so, it provided him with the opportunity to learn about the conflict from the perspective of those who had fought it on the other side of the battlefield. As these former enemy veterans began sharing their personal stories of hardship and tragedy-one of which was not too dissimilar from the author's own-he was struck by a stark realization. As difficult and tragic as the war had been for Americans who served, it had taken as much, if not greater, a toll on the Vietnamese. In war, there are never winners-and Vietnam was no exception. Returning to Vietnam more than 50 times to interview hundreds of North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and Viet Cong (VC) veterans, in addition to Vietnamese civilians, the author obtained a better understanding as to the extent of our former enemy's suffering during that war. The result was a metamorphosis, which changed his attitude towards a former foe. "Bare Feet, Iron Will" became the vehicle by which he shares what this metamorphosis taught him. In "Bare Feet, Iron Will" are stories of intrigue, of patience, of ingenuity, of dedication and, most importantly, about a people with no option other than victory. These stories, share unique insights about the war. Intriguing insights evolving into odd coincidences-such as what led a Vietnamese veteran to write a novel, praised by Western critics, about the war; an interview where the author would learn the interviewee had tried to assassinate his father; the earlier-than-realized first American casualty of the Vietnam conflict and what that incident would portend for US involvement. About Vietnam's allies-including China, a country with which Vietnam has fought in almost every century and how China sought at times to give the appearance of helping North Vietnam while not doing so and North Korea, which pressured to send pilots to fight the Americans, only to have Hanoi send the Koreans home, trying to hide their participation by burying North Korean pilots in an obscure cemetery. More than a generation after the war in Vietnam ended, many Americans are still haunted by its memory. More than thirty-four years after the fall of Saigon, it is time to better understand the enemy we fought and the ro1e their "iron will" played. And with that understanding, hopefully many may find the healing they seek.
Consolations of Philosophy Penguin
Alain de Botton, best-selling author of How Proust can Change Your Life, has set six of the finest minds in the history of philosophy to work on the problems of everyday life. Here then are Socrates, Epicurus, Seneca, Montaigne, Schopenhauer and Nietzsche on some of the things that bother us all; lack of money, the pain of love, inadequacy, anxiety, the fear of failure and the pressure to conform.

'When people ask me what I do for a crust and I tell them that I'm a novelist, they immediately assume that my life is a non-stop carousel of limos, television appearances, hair-dos, devoted fans, stalkers and all the glitzy paraphernalia of being a public figure. It's time to set the record straight. I write alone, in a darkened bedroom, wearing my PJs, eating bananas, my laptop on a pillow in front of me ...' Her novels are adored by millions around the world

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Don't Die With Your Music Still in You HAY HOUSE PUBLISHING
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
In 2001, Dr Wayne Dyer wrote a book called 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace, based on the most important principles he wanted his children to live by. Serena Dyer, one of those children, has contemplated these ideas throughout her life. 'Don't die with your music still in you' has been the most important principle for Serena: to her, it means that you don't allow yourself to live any life other than the one you were born to live. In this book, Serena sets out to explain what it was like to grow up with spiritual parents. She touches upon all ten of her dad's original secrets, imparting her own experiences with them and detailing how they have affected the way she approaches various situations in life. She shares stories, struggles, and triumphs - and Wayne, in turn, contributes his own perspective. This unique father-daughter collaboration will warm the hearts of all parents ...and inspire anyone who is looking to find the 'music' inside themselves.

Instinct for War MIT Press Massachusets Institute of Tech nology
Stories about war are some of the oldest stories told--used to entertain, to glorify, to lament, to educate. An Instinct for War utilizes myriad tales of war to offer a remarkable look at one of humanity's oldest plagues. Roger Spiller excavates the essence of war and its evolution through the words and thoughts of those who led--and those who were led--into battle, moving from the perspective of an ancient Chinese emperor to Napoleon's command, from a Civil War soldier's final days to the particularities of today's small wars throughout the globe. Spiller combines a mastery of the primary sources with a vibrant historical imagination to locate a dozen turning points in the world's history of warfare that altered our understanding of war and its pursuit. We are conducted through profound moments by the voices of those who witnessed them and are given a graphic understanding of war, the devastating choices, the means by which battles are won and lost, and the enormous price exacted. Spiller's attention to the sights and sounds of battle enables us to feel the sting and menace of past violent conflicts as if they were today's. A bold departure from standard military history, An Instinct for War will challenge our understanding of how war forever alters the landscape--both human and geographic--and how individuals can alter the nature of battle. This collective portrait of the life of war offers unparalleled insight into our struggle for mastery over a fundamental instinct. In a graceful feat of imagination and trenchant analysis, Spiller presents 13 mostly first-person parables, meditations on moments when the 'nature and conduct of war' changed significantly. His narrators, invented almost from whole cloth or reconstructed from notable figures, reflect on the craft and meaning of war in settings ranging from Han China to a future North America...These inventive vignettes encompass a broad sweep of history and military thought. --Publishers WeeklyImagine a military historian who can travel in time to past and future wars. That's what Roger Spiller, who taught at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, does in his imaginative collection of 13 short stories. They stretch from ancient China to a 21st-century war 'so terrible it was beyond naming.'...His mostly first-person stories deal with Cortez's conquest of the Aztecs, what Civil War Gen. George McClellan tried to borrow from Napoleon and an investigation of a Japanese general after World War II. Spiller's stories can be read as parables. They neither celebrate nor condemn war but raise fundamental questions faced by soldiers and civilians. --Bob Minzesheimer, USA TodayAn Instinct for War is a brilliantly unorthodox piece of work. Roger Spiller, now George C. Marshall Professor, emeritus, of Military History at the U.S. Army Command General Staff College, has written a strange, brave, and absolutely fascinating book...Spiller's fictions are always in the service of ideas. They dramatize aspects of the experience of war and of strategic thought over two and a half millennia, so they are fictions in the sense that Platonic dialogues are fictions...All these stories are powerful, most of them are disturbing, and each contains lessons that can be subtle, multiple, and contradictory, as so many of war's lessons are...Along the way Spiller displays great learning, always lightly worn; great moral seriousness, never ponderously displayed; and literary flair. This is a remarkable book, initially disconcerting and eventually enthralling. --Fredric Smoler, American HeritageRoger Spiller is the least conventional of historians. For years, he has laboured on a book on the nature of war, and he has cast it in fictional form...This thought-provoking book represents an infusion of a lifetime's reading and thought about war, and renders the dimensions of conflict comprehensible to all. This is an achievement rare among historians, and Roger Spiller must now be reckoned among the notable writers about war. --Brian Holden Reid, Times Literary SupplementWith An Instinct for War, Roger Spiller takes his place alongside John Keegan and Paul Fussell, those who are able to penetrate the armor of war itself and get at its horrible, vivifying, excruciating heart. The truths that accumulate here in this book are like the layers of a pearl, born in friction, imperceptibly accrued at first, but ultimately exquisitely valuable. --Ken Burns, filmmaker An Instinct For War is a book of war-stories like no other I've read--a cultural history of the world's war-making, from ancient China and Greece to the Apocalypse that's just ahead of us. Spiller's skills include ventriloquism: he makes every war speak in a voice of its own, sometimes historical, sometimes not. His book is a tour de force that will engage every student of war, as it did me. --Samuel Hynes, author of Flights of Passage and The Soldier's TaleRoger Spiller has written a remarkable book--a fusion of learning, reflection, and imagination--that will engage readers for whom the subject of war is too important to be left to either military historians or public officials. --John Shy, Professor Emeritus of History, University of Michigan Spiller's knowledge of warfare is global in every sense of the word, spanning the earth and stretching from earliest recorded history to the present. This is military history at its very best. --Peter Maslowski, author of Looking For A Hero: Staff Sergeant Joe Ronnie Hooper And The Vietnam War
Russian Roulette Caffeine Nights Publishing
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
Meet Konstantin Boryakov, the enigmatic ex-KGB agent and tramp from the best-selling debut novel, The Fix. He's a man with a dark history and darker future. Trouble has a habit of seeking out Konstantin, whether he wants it or not. Starting with small time drug dealer Dave the Rave from the moment he arrives in the seedy seaside town of Margate where he's supposed to hide, to Nikos the loan shark and Fat Gary, all round idiot. Then there's the so-called good guys, the councilors and lawyers who are worse than the criminals. But Konstantin isn't alone, despite his wishes. Fidelity Brown, aka Plastic Fantastic, dildo wielding dominatrix who has her own melange of secrets and lies, and nightclub owner Ken who's connected to all the wrong people, help the Russian with the heap of problems delivered to his doorstep. Cue deception, murder, mayhem as Konstantin settles into his new life. Margate will never be the same again. 'Lean, mean and gritty, with writing as sharp as a razor cut. Keith Nixon serves up a 'Konstantin Kocktail', with equal parts Vodka to Vodka, that'll hit you just where it's needed.' Matt Hilton - Author of the Joe Hunter thrillers. 'Keith Nixon gets better with each new book. Among a promising crop of new writers he's the one to watch. A rare and diverse talent who has the ability to surprise and impress ... sometimes in the same sentence.' Tony Black, author of The Last Tiger and The Inglorious Dead. 'Nixon writes hard-hitting fiction, with a dash of humour, a cast of great characters, and a dollop of violence. Konstantin is a fantastic creation and this collection of novellas is hopefully a taste of bigger things to come.' Luca Veste, author of Dead Gone and The Dying Place 'If you told me that Konstantin put the K in KGB, I wouldn't even argue. This character is a badass of the highest calibre.' Gerard Brennan, author of Undercover. 'Russian Roulette, Keith Nixon's fast-paced collection of seven novellas, feels cinematic, like Snatch meets a steampunk Sherlock Holmes: deliciously foreign and saturated in the other, offering American audiences a first class seat to see how noir is done across the pond. Navigating an exotic subculture of ecstasy-dealing English toughs, dominatrixes, crime lords, loan sharks and all sorts of lowlifes, Nixon continues the story of Russian-born Konstanin, anti-hero for the modern age. Like Marlowe before him, Konstantin has a penchant for finding trouble-and an unflinching sense of morality to get him out of it.' Joe Clifford, author of Lamentation and Junkie Love. 'Nixon delivers a series of hard-edged twists and turns that will leave you reeling and turning the pages in what is an unforgettable story.' Richard Godwin, author of Hitman and One Lost Summer. 'Hardboiled action and sharp, gritty humour. Highly recommended.' Paul D. Brazill, author of Guns Of Brixton and A Case Of Noir. 'Flat, monotoned, dreary landscapes against which two of the most original characters ever seen in literature-Konstantin and Fidelity-operate together and separately in linked stories in a series of nourish nightmares that will have you screaming inside your skull. This is what noir is all about. Masterful, deadly and powerful.' Les Edgerton, author of The Rapist, The Bitch and The Genuine, Imitation, Plastic Kidnapping. 'If you thought "The Fix" was a blast of black comedy, you ain't seen nothing yet. In this collection of fast-moving novellas, reacquaint yourself with Konstantin Boryakov, a tramp claiming to be ex-KGB. The people who cross him may be sorry, but you won't be.' Nick Quantrill, author of The Late Greats."
Mencken Oxford University Press
People whose opinions I respect have told me, usually with a certain amount of resignation, that culture war is the default state of American politics. The decades of New Deal liberalism, they explain, were not the epochal realignment they appeared to be at the time but merely a temporary armistice in the apparently endless and virtually pointless struggle over manners and morals. What's more, the resumption of cultural hostilities in recent years is just the country's inevitable return to doing what comes naturally. We have simply picked up where we left off in 1929, the theory goes, when other matters distracted us from our habitual preoccupation with the theory of evolution and the scandalous habits of the young. Perhaps this is what explains the publication of the third comprehensive biography of H.L. Mencken in 11 years. If we are truly doomed to fight and refight the culture wars on into the future, then Mencken -- that scoffing, pugnacious enemy of the sacred -- is exactly the critic whose life and views we ought to be remembering. An unbelievably prolific journalist and magazine editor who lived in Baltimore his entire life, Mencken so mocked and punctured the genteel mentality of the Victorians during his heyday (roughly, 1919-30) that it might be said he single-handedly ushered American letters into the 20th century. In the American Mercury, the magazine he co-founded in 1924, Mencken blasted the hyper-patriots, he laughed at the evangelicals, he shamed the racists, he baited the Babbittry, and he did all of it in a swaggering, sarcastic and yet elegant prose style that remains -- or ought to remain, anyway -- the model for every columnist, critic and blog-militant in this famously polarized age. The great man's contemporary relevance, however, is not a point raised by Marion Elizabeth Rodgers, the author of this new Mencken biography (she also edited a 1991 collection of his newspaper stories). In fact, the only one of the recent biographers really to press the notion that Mencken is a figure whose time has come (or, more accurately, returned) is Terry Teachout, author of The Skeptic (2002), which asserted that Mencken was politically conservative and that conservatives are in the ascendancy today. The particular species of conservatism that now holds the nation in its grasp, however, owes few debts to Mencken. The man was no fan of what we now call the "red states." On the contrary: He savagely derided the same backwoods civilization that so many conservative writers now embrace in order to establish their regular-guy bona fides. Mencken revered science and lambasted religion; his favorite put-downs, usually applied to the inhabitants of deepest Arkansas or Tennessee, were words like "moron," "idiot" and "yokel." His conservatism was that of Nietzsche, not George Wallace, and one can only speculate wistfully about the kind of destruction he would have visited on such excreta as the Left Behind novels or "The O'Reilly Factor." The immediate problem facing the biographer of Mencken is, ironically, the same quality that makes Mencken such a worthwhile subject: his peerless prose. Any study of the author is bound to disappoint when his own words are cited and the reader suddenly feels the galvanic force of the great man's writing -- and, by comparison, the weakness of the biographer's own abilities. Biographies that focus on the development of Mencken's ideas suffer from this problem even when they are well-written. (They suffer also from the inevitable realization that Mencken's ideas, as opposed to his verbal style, simply do not stand up after 70 years.) Rodgers circumvents this difficulty altogether by giving us Mencken the man, in impressive and often fantastic detail, while keeping the author's writing and ideas largely in the background. Every lead is chased down: The reader learns about what Mencken drank while in Germany during World War I, the testimony he gave in a censorship case in the 1940s, how much affection this person or that felt for him, and, over and over again, the intimate details of his love life. It is a solid and well-researched work, built on dozens of interviews in addition to heroic feats of archival digging. Mencken emerges here as a very different figure from the one we thought we knew from his cranky "Prejudices" books or the sarcastic items he wrote for the American Mercury in its golden age. Rodgers's Mencken is a decent fellow: lovable and almost always in the right. The author's thoroughgoing identification with her subject allows her to create a vivid portrait, but it also makes it difficult for her to show us how shattering Mencken's commentary could be in the early 1920s -- how alien and perverse it seemed to the "100 percent Americans" of those days -- and how monotonous, unfunny and irrelevant it became in the '30s. Any biography of Mencken, though, is ultimately no more than a supplement to the man's own works. Let us hope that this comprehensive study of Mencken's life introduces a new generation of readers to this enemy of falsehood and destroyer of pretense, this man whose response to the absurdity of the culture wars was laughter.
