The Grand Convergence Economic and Political Aspects of Human

The Grand Convergence describes, evaluates, and advocates for sweeping changes in our global economic and political structure that would ensure the prospects of global human civilization as we confront an uncertain and hazardous future. It argues both for the Marshall Plan as well as for a limited federal world government to replace the quasi-anarchic international regime of today.
The Grand Convergence Economic and Political Aspects of Human is so well written that it brought me into the hearts and minds of these people.

Snowboarding Bodies in Theory and Practice

Snowboarding Bodies in Theory and Practice By Dr Holly Thorpe
Snowboarding Bodies in Theory and Practice provides the first in-depth analysis of the global phenomenon of snowboarding. Drawing upon an extensive array of sources gathered from six countries over seven years, the book offers fresh insights into snowboarding culture, including the sport, lifestyle, industry, media, gender relations, travel and tourism, and physical experience, in both historical and contemporary contexts. It also contributes to recent debates surrounding the practices and politics of the active body.   Facilitating a multidimensional analysis of snowboarding bodies, each chapter draws upon, and extends, a different theoretical perspective—i.e., cultural memory studies, Marxist political economy, post-Fordism, Foucauldian theorizing, Pierre Bourdieu’s theory of embodiment, feminism, sociology of mobilities, and non-representational theory. Creatively blending theory and empirical research, this book offers both a comprehensive investigation of snowboarding bodies in local and global contexts, and an engaging commentary on the use of social theory and research methods for understanding sport and physical cultures in the early twenty-first century.
Snowboarding Bodies in Theory and Practice is very well written and draws you in. I couldn’t read it fast enough wanting know what happens. I finished a week so and I’m still upset about the end.
I enjoyed because the story line kept surprising me. I couldn’t put Snowboarding Bodies in Theory and Practice down as I wanted to see what occur next.

Cosmos and Character in Paradise Lost

Cosmos and Character in Paradise Lost By Malabika Sarkar
This book offers a fresh contextual reading of Paradise Lost that suggests that a recovery of the vital intellectual ferment of the new science, magic, and alchemy of the seventeenth century reveals new and unexpected aspects of Milton’s cosmos and chaos, and the characters of the angels and Adam and Eve. After examining the contextual references to cabalism, hermeticism, and science in the invocations and in the presentation of chaos and Night, the book focuses on the central stage of the epic action, Milton’s unique cosmos, at once finite and infinite, with its re-orientation of compass points. While Milton relies on the new astronomy, optics and mechanics in configuring his cosmos, he draws upon alchemy to suggest that the imagined prelapsarian cosmos is the crucible within which vital re-orientations of authority could have taken place.
This collection of short stories has been an absolute pleasure to read. But still, plenty to sink your teeth into in this wonderful Cosmos and Character in Paradise Lost
No wonder Cosmos and Character in Paradise Lost won the couldn’t put it down. Each character comes to life in an extraordinary tale.

Sex and Aesthetics in Samuel Beckett s Work

Sex and Aesthetics in Samuel Beckett s Work By Paul Stewart
This book places sex and sexuality firmly at the heart of Beckett’s oeuvre.

Rwanda Fast Forward Social Economic Military and Reconciliation

Rwanda Fast Forward Social Economic Military and Reconciliation By unknown
The future of Rwanda lies in its diversity, in how this diversity is handled and prioritised. With a vast array of first-hand experience, the contributors offer insights on Rwandan social, military, civil society, governance and economic matters to weave a picture that is as compelling as it is balanced. Assessing Rwanda’s future beyond its ‘development plan’, they discuss the implicationsof decisions taken today and their future role in the region. In a diversified, incisive and comprehensive series of responses that are neither ‘for’ nor ‘against’ the current political regime, they ask fundamental questions that will shape the future of this tiny mountain country in central Africa.
Now I’m gonna have to go back and read his previous works, and I can’t wait!
I read it slowly because I didn’t want it to end. If you are a fan of you won’t be disappointed.

Prisons Punishment and the Pursuit of Security

Prisons Punishment and the Pursuit of Security By Dr Deborah Drake
Nation states around the globe are struggling with increasing concerns over human and global insecurity. Within this climate crime and criminal justice policies in many countries have become key areas of political focus, with the prison poised to play an important role in security strategies. This book problematises the persistent use of prisons and punishment and their role in pursuing higher levels of human security. Drawing on extensive, qualitative research in men’s long-term, maximum-security prisons in England, questions are raised about the means by which security is pursued. The book argues against the use of severe sanctions as a means through which to calm public fears, achieve greater political legitimacy, and improve public security. By considering problems of security alongside those of long-term prisons, the book grapples with thorny and perennial problems associated with violence, vengeance and calls for punishment.
Highly recommend Prisons Punishment and the Pursuit of Security. Loved it and plan to read the other books in the series. Could not put the book down.
I choose this rating because I really liked Prisons Punishment and the Pursuit of Security. That is the mark of a great book in my opinion.

Time Space and Gender in the Nineteenth Century British Diary By Rebecca Steinitz
Through close examinations of manuscript diaries, diary publications, and diaries in fiction, this book explores how the diary’s construction of time and space made it an invaluable and uniquely effective vehicle for the dominant discourses of the period.  Rebecca Steinitz also explains how such a vast and varied genre evolved into the feminine, emotive, private form we continue to privilege today.
This was my first of Time Space and Gender in the Nineteenth Century British Diary to read and it was so good that it went by way to fast as I couldn’t seam to lay it down. I will be looking for all her other Kindle books now.

Leadership and Global Justice

Leadership and Global Justice By unknown
What does global justice look like, and how can leadership help get us there? The contributors to Leadership and Global Justice confront the conceptual and practical challenges associated with applying the concept of justice beyond national boundaries. Essays analyze the roles and responsibilities of institutions—states, corporations, international financial institutions, UN bodies, nongovernmental organizations—in making collaborative progress towards international justice. They explore justice in various spheres: citizenship, the marketplace, health, education, and the environment. And they provide creative and constructive moral approaches for evaluating and promoting global justice, including human rights, capabilities, and solidarity of people across boundaries.
Highly recommend Leadership and Global Justice. Loved it and plan to read the other books in the series. Could not put the book down.
Leadership and Global Justice makes you think about having a person that cares for you can make all the difference in your life.
