♥ Book Title : Terror in Our Time
☯ Full Synopsis : "Written by two leading scholars, this book is an accessible overview of the global political consequences of the 9/11 terror attacks. The War on Terror has defined the first decade of this century. It has been marked by the deaths of thousands of people, political turmoil, massive destruction, and intense fear. Regardless of the name it goes under, the long war on terror will continue to affect lives across the world. Its catalyst, 9/11, did not have to happen, nor did the character of the responses. This book offers a set of novel interpretations of how we got here, where we are, and where we should be heading. It is organised around twelve penetrating and readable essays, full of novel interpretations and succinct summaries of complex ideas and events. In their examination of those aspects of global order touched by terror, the authors argue that the dangers of international terrorism are not overblown. Future 9/11s are possible: so is a more just and law-governed world. Terrorism cannot be disinvented, but with more intelligent policies than have been on show these past ten years, it can be overcome and made politically anachronistic. This book will be essential reading for all students of terrorism studies, international security, war and conflict studies and IR in general, as well as of much interest to well-informed lay readers."Article| Ken Booth| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The Anatomy of Evil in Our Time
☯ Full Synopsis : "In lucid dreams, astral experience and paranormal epiphany Adam Michaelis encountered the extrasensory reality of evil powers like Lucifer, Ahriman, and Sorath - and those otherworldly entities were suddenly seen operative in different patterns of contemporary culture and personal psychology. Adam's candid biography brings evidence of an impending evil, as foretold by Rudolf Steiner, and offers the reader a comprehensive perspective and a minute understanding of the nature and purpose of evil in our time and in evolution. This exceptional material and transformative insight is highlighted in a penetrating and critical analysis of New Age philosophy, guruism, paganism and modern cultural development. Finally the teachings of Jesus on evil are made topical, and the Christian ethics and philosophy of life are interpreted as the true human response to suffering. In sum, we find here an astonishing and truly original document on one of the fundamental questions of humanity and a profound explanation of the human predicament."Article| Adam Michaelis| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : A Hero of Our Time
☯ Full Synopsis : "'After all that - how, you might wonder, could one not become a fatalist?' Lermontov's hero, Pechorin, is a young army officer posted to the Caucasus, where his adventures - amorous and reckless - do nothing to alleviate his boredom and cynicism. World-weary and self-destructive, Pechorin is alienated from those around him yet he is full of passion and romantic ardour, sensitive as well as arrogant. His complex, contradictory character dominates A Hero of Our Time, the first great Russian novel, in which the intricate narrative unfolds episodically, transporting the reader from the breathtaking terrain of the Caucasus to the genteel surroundings of spa resorts. Told in an engaging yet pointedly ironic style, the story expresses Lermontov's own estrangement from the stifling conventions of bourgeois society and the oppression of Russian autocracy, but it also captures a longing for freedom through acts of love and bravery. This new edition also includes Pushkin's Journey to Arzrum, in which Pushkin describes his own experiences of Russia's military campaigns in the Caucasus and which provides a fascinating counterpoint to Lermontov's novel. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more."Article| Mikhail Lermontov| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Putin's Reign of Terror the Permanent Revolution in Our Time
☯ Full Synopsis : "On 16 August 1999, the Duma elected Vladimir Putin Prime Minister of Russia. He faced enormous opposition to his rule. On 26 August 1999, Putin began to attack the Chechen People on the pretext of suppressing the activities of the Islamic International Brigade and in response to the "Apartment Bombings" which Putin blamed on the Chechens, but which were in fact the work of the KGB/FSB. These international terrorists were working for Putin, not against him. Putin rapidly gained the popularity he was initially wanting and used it to elevate himself onto the lofty throne of a new Russian dictatorship. His feet barely reached the ground. Vladimir Putin quickly restored the communist dictatorship of the Soviet Union with covert State sponsored terrorism which provided a pretext for ever expanding State powers. Putin took over control of the media and persecuted dissenting journalists, thereby insulating his communist kleptocracy from public scrutiny. Vladimir Putin has used Chechen terrorists as a pretext to invade Chechnya, Georgia and Syria. In Chechnya, Ukraine and Syria, Putin has pitted Chechens against Chechens to intensify the fighting and amplify the destruction. Where the Chechen terrorists go, Putin and the Russian military follow, and occupy. Reconstructing and expanding the Soviet Union as he goes, Putin has since followed the Chechen shock troops he commands all the way to Syria, where they lead ISIS. These same terrorists strike around the world at key moments in the election cycle of Putin''s favored political candidates abroad, candidates who run on an anti-terrorism platform and benefit politically from the terrorism they ostensibly oppose. It is a generally unacknowledged fact that ISIS strikes in regions and at times which benefit Putin''s preferred politicians abroad and at home. This cannot be a coincidence, given the numbers of attacks and their predictable effects on elections. But the author is alone in reporting this obvious fact to the world. Putin and Trump are colluding to subvert and co-opt NATO and change its mission from defending Europe from Russia, to fighting self consuming wars against Muslims -- destroying their countries and the West for the benefit of Russia and Israel. The book exposes the hypocritical role neonazis play in undermining NATO and promoting KGB communist Vladimir Putin, and Putin''s hypocrisy in supporting "fascists" abroad while outlawing Nationalism and anti-Semitism in Russia. It provides a history of the controlled opposition of Libertarianism to Communism, as well as Murray Rothbard''s anti-American Soviet apologetics and Ron Paul''s revealing Russian apologetics. Ayn Rand is exposed as a communist and zionist subversive, and member of the Soviet "Trust". Trotskyite neoconservatives commandeered the Republican Party, and in collusion with Russia and Israel have forwarded the Marxist permanent revolution worldwide with false flag terrorism and endless wars. Given Americans'' reluctance to fight more self-defeating wars against Islam, Putin now carries the torch of Trotsky''s permanent revolution and engages in relentless false flag terrorism. He seeks to turn all of Europe into vassal States serving a new and enlarged Eurasian Soviet Union. The communists are staging conflicts between bolshevik antifa and their neonazi twins so as to destabilize the West to the point of a crisis, at which point the communists will instigate civil wars and invade. The communists never stopped fighting WW II and seek to genocide the German People as an act of revenge and a means to prevent another counter-revolutionary war against Russian bolshevism. There is a large section on the British 2017 general election and the spate of terrorism that took place leading up to it. The Soviets created the modern anti-zionist movement and are using it to promote Muslim immigration to Europe and America, and to drive a wedge between the North Atlantic alliance and Israel, in favor of a Russian-Israeli alliance."Article| Christopher Jon Bjerknes| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Hemingway's In Our Time
☯ Full Synopsis : ""Many scholars consider In Our Time to be Hemingway's finest work, yet the cohesiveness of this sequence of stories and interchapters has often been questioned. Hemingway himself, however, had a clear idea of the work's integrity, as his manuscripts and letters reveal. As he wrote to his publisher Horace Liveright on 31 March 1925, "There is nothing in the book that has not a definite place in its organization and if I at any time seem to repeat myself I have a good reason for doing so" (Selected Letters, 154)." "According to Ms. Tetlow, author of this thoughtful study of Hemingway's In Our Time, the relationship among the stories and interchapters is precisely analogous to that within a modern poetic sequence as characterized by M.L. Rosenthal and Sally M. Gall in The Modern Poetic Sequence: The Genius of Modern Poetry: ". . . a grouping of mainly lyric poems and passages, rarely uniform in pattern, which tend to interact as an organic whole. It usually includes narrative and dramatic elements, and ratiocinative ones as well, but its structure is finally lyrical" (9). The structure of In Our time, then, is similar to such works as Ezra Pound's Hugh Selwyn Mauberley and T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, works that progress tonally." "Looking closely at the language of In Our Time, Ms. Tetlow pays particular attention to recurring images and sounds, and the successive sets of feeling these tonal complexes project. She traces the lyrical pattern in the sequence as it builds in intensity from denial of fear, suffering, and death in the first stories and early interchapters, and then traces the progression to cautious resignation in the latter stories and interchapters. The author also takes into account the importance for Hemingway of Pound's and Eliot's aesthetics and demonstrates how Eliot's idea of the objective correlative and Pound's idea of "direct treatment of the 'thing'" apply to Hemingway's stories and interchapters (Literary Essays, 3)." "Opening with a discussion of the six prose pieces in the original version--the shorter "In Our Time" (1923)--the study considers the aesthetic choices Hemingway made in revising these pieces when he incorporated them in his longer sequence of eighteen in in our time (1924). The study then discusses the lyrical progression of the prose sequence in the fully developed volume In Our Time (1925). Finally, it looks at A Farewell to Arms and shows how the lyrical structure of In Our Time anticipates the longer work with its more continuous narrative pattern."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

♥ Book Title : Reflections on the Revolution of our Time (Works of Harold J. Laski)
☯ Full Synopsis : "This is Laski’s most important book after A Grammar of Politics. It discusses, on a grand scale, every aspect of American public life. Laski surveys American traditions and the American spirit, political institutions, the entire educational, religious, economic and social scene, America as a world power, and Americanism as a principle of civilisation. Laski’s unsurpassed knowledge of American constitutional, social and cultural history is set in the perspective of his deep study of comparative constitutional history and political theory. He was one of very few people to see U.S. politics from the inside, as a result of his friendships with Roosevelt, Brandeis and Oliver Wendell Holmes."Article| Harold J. Laski| Statement ..."
