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.

Excerpt from Proceedings of the National Conference on Labor Problems Under War Conditions: Under the Joint Auspices of the Society of Industrial Engineers and the Western Efficiency Society, Held at Hotel La Salle, Chicago, March 27, 28, 29, 1918 Mr. F. A. Carlisle, President Western Efficiency Society, Chairman. The meeting was called to order at two o'clock. The Chairman: As is customary with the meetings of the Western Efficiency Society, we will first join in singing the Star Spangled Banner, after which the Rev. Alfred F. Waldo, of Riverside, will deliver the invocation. The assembly joined in singing the Star Spangled Banner, after which the following prayer was offered by Rev. Alfred F. Waldo: "Let us pray. This, our Heavenly Father, is Holy Week, and yet we know that no good work is too secular to be done in this week, and we rejoice and find encouragement and are grateful to Thee for the line intelligence and the splendid enthusiasm with which the minds of these men and women set themselves to work for the solution of the problems of humanity. We perceive in the coincidence between the Holy Weeks, the Holy Week of old when Jesus Christ laid down his life for the redemption of the world on the cross of Calvary and this week when our brave men and boys in the spirit of the same Christ are laying down their lives freely on that western front, we perceive in this a coincidence which is suggestive and stimulating. "We realize that we are living not only in a time but in a week and possibly on a day than which no other day aside from the one upon which Christ died has been more fateful in human history, more freighted, perhaps, with destiny for the future interests of mankind. And we pray that whereas that one of old who betrayed Christ did have the good sense afterwards to go out and hang himself, this traitor by which civilization is betrayed today, instead of terminating his own meaningless and woeful existence utilizes his energies for the murder of others; for him we pray to God that his erroneous and wicked plots may be confuted, and that Thou wilt send a divine power into the minds of the rulers of all of our nations that are associated for the vanquishment of autocracy and evil, into tho minds of our rulers, our generals, our officers, Thou Lord send wisdom that they may plan boldly and wisely and effectively. "And we pray for the men who fight that through faith in Thee they may become conscious of a physical and moral and spiritual strength which is not their own and yet which becomes their own because they receive it and utilize it.

In the summer of 1916, Mabe, and her family moved from central Utah to join Papa in Copperfield, a small settlement near the town of Bingham, and the Utah Copper Mine, 'The Hill', where he was head guard. His participation in the man hunt for the famous killer, Lopez, and his efforts to uphold the law earned respect for his bravery and honesty. Mama gained the love of her neighbors as she comforted women whose husbands were hurt or killed in the mines, offered protection to a neighbor whose husband beat her when he was drunk, nursed neighborhood children with serious diseases, and served in the war effort group during World War I. Mabe helped her family save their home from a fire and watched a fight in the coffee house next door erupt into a murder. Mabe, who had difficulties in school, dreamed of becoming a good student and making her mark in some positive way. She overcame those problems and succeeded as a leader in high school, but experiences confirmed her observation, "Females are just as good as males, but they aren't treated fairly". She embarked on a quest to change that and to show women could be as outstanding in sports and other endeavors as men. As a switchboard operator, she handled hundreds of calls during a devastating avalanche in the area, and returned in a sleigh filled with bodies. She witnessed floods and mining disasters, and experienced Prohibition, the Great Depression, and two world wars. As she helps us learn more about this fascinating place, we watch Mabe grow, with encouragement and support from her family and neighbors from many ethnic backgrounds, from unsure girlhood into an outstanding, confident woman who was far ahead of her time.

The Holocaust was the systematic murder of six million European Jews by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Party. The horrors of the Holocaust have documented been many times. Even those that were not killed, mutilated, or starved in concentration camps were stripped of their citizenship and their identities. The Nazis did not stop there, though. Hitler, in his quest to build an empire, planned and executed the most extensive theft of art and cultural treasures in history. A group of art historians, museum curators, scholars, and others with an expertise in art accepted the enormous responsibility of traveling to the front lines of World War II in an effort to protect art before it could be stolen or recover the art that fell into the hands of the Nazis. Even more lent their expertise when the fighting ended, remaining in Europe for years after the war was over. They were called "Venus fixers" by the troops but have since come to be known as the Monuments Men. Acting on orders from General Dwight D. Eisenhower, who had the backing of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, many of the Monuments Men - and women - put their lives on the line for art. By doing so, they preserved not just paintings, sculptures, and tapestries, but a significant portion of the culture that makes life worth living. As Mikhail Piotrovsky, the director of the State Hermitage Museum in Russia, said, "Art belongs to humanity. Art is what makes us human." This book dives into the fascinating history of one of the greatest treasure hunts of all time! HistoryCaps is an imprint of BookCaps Study Guides. With each book, a brief period of history is recapped.

Killer Couples BLAKE PUBLISHING

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Love and lust are among the most powerful of emotions, but when a joint thirst for violence is thrown into the mix, it creates the ultimate lethal cocktail. Killer Couples explores the deadly dynamic that exists within the relationships of men and women whose romantic obsession leads them to commit acts of bloody devastation. Looking at case histories from around the world - some well known, others whose shocking truth is revealed for the first time - it asks what kind of love proves itself by brutality against innocents, what warped ties of loyalty bind a lover to a mate who murders, and how the balance of power between a couple can become so twisted that other people become irrelevant and, worse, disposable. The seemingly normal can all too frequently hide a macabre depravity for terror, torture and death. If they hadn't met, these people might have continued through their lives in unremarkable obsurity. In all their horrific detail, discover how their flaws and fantasies fused to create a monster that fed on the sadistic extermination of their victims. The couples in this book could be your neighbours, even your friends. They're ordinary people with an extraordinary secret - murder.

Mama Rose's Turn ROUNDHOUSE PUBLISHING GROUP

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is the remarkable true story of the show-biz saga everyone thought they already knew. Rose Thompson Hovick, mother of June Havoc and Gypsy Rose Lee, went down in theatrical history as "The Stage Mother from Hell" after her immortalization on Broadway in Gypsy: A Musical Fable. Yet the musical was 75 percent fictionalized - Rose's full story is even more striking. Born on the North Dakota prairie in 1891, Rose Thompson had a kind father and a gallivanting mother who sold lacy finery to prostitutes. She became an unhappy teenage bride whose marriage yielded two entrancing daughters, Louise and June. When June was discovered to be a child prodigy in ballet, capable of dancing en pointe by the age of three, Rose, without benefit of any theatrical training, set out to create onstage opportunities for her magical baby girl - and succeeded. "Baby June" became a child headliner in vaudeville, and Louise grew up to be the well-known burlesque star Gypsy Rose Lee. The rest of Mama Rose's remarkable story included love affairs with both men and women, the operation of a "lesbian pick-up joint", wild attempts to extort money from Gypsy and June, two stints as a chicken farmer, and three allegations of cold-blooded murder - all of which was deemed unfit for the script of Gypsy. Here, at last, is the rollicking, wild saga that never made it to the stage.
