This book was released on 2012-07-16 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Washington Post Notable Non-Fiction of 2013 “I can imagine few more enjoyable ways of thinking than to read this book.”—Sarah Bakewell, New York Times Book Review, front-page review Tackling the “darkest question in all of philosophy” with “raffish erudition” (Dwight Garner, New York Times), author Jim Holt explores the greatest metaphysical mystery of all: why is there something rather than nothing? This runaway bestseller, which has captured the imagination of critics and the public alike, traces our latest efforts to grasp the origins of the universe. Holt adopts the role of cosmological detective, traveling the globe to interview a host of celebrated scientists, philosophers, and writers, “testing the contentions of one against the theories of the other” (Jeremy Bernstein, Wall Street Journal). As he interrogates his list of ontological culprits, the brilliant yet slyly humorous Holt contends that we might have been too narrow in limiting our suspects to God versus the Big Bang. This “deft and consuming” (David Ulin, Los Angeles Times) narrative humanizes the profound questions of meaning and existence it confronts.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the author of Harry's Game - A Sunday Times '100 best crime novels and thrillers since 1945' pick Gus Peake should have kept his job and stayed at home, but an old family debt of friendship draws him to the remote wastes of Northern Iraq and to a savage forgotten war between Kurdish guerillas and Saddam Hussein's military strength. To the brutal, no-quarter combat, Peake can bring the skills he has learned as a marksman. But there is no room for mistakes on the field of battle and he must quickly learn to deal out random death at long distance, and help the guerillas to reach their goal, the city of Kirkuk, the old capital of the Kurdish people. From Baghdad, Iraq sends Major Karim Aziz, the most dedicated and professional sniper in Saddam's army. For both men their duel, from which only one can walk away, becomes an obsession.

Summary Book Review Global Gender Issues in the New Millennium :
Download or read book in PDF Global Gender Issues in the New Millennium written by Anne Sisson Runyan and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2013-11-12 with total page 320 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Global Gender Issues in the New Millennium argues that the power of gender works to help keep gender, race, class, sexual, and national divisions in place despite increasing attention to gender issues in the study and practice of world politics. Accessible and student-friendly for both undergraduate and graduate courses, authors Anne Sisson Runyan and V. Spike Peterson analyze gendered divisions of power and resources that contribute to the worldwide crises of representation, violence, and sustainability. They emphasize how hard-won attention to gender equality in world affairs can be co-opted when gender is used to justify or mystify unjust forms of global governance, international security, and global political economy. In the new and updated fourth edition, Runyan and Peterson examine the challenges of forging transnational solidarities to de-gender world politics, scholarship, and practice through renewed politics for greater representation and redistribution. Yet they see promise in coalitional struggles to re-radicalize feminist world political demands to change the downward conditions of women, men, children, and the planet. Updated to include framing questions at the opening of each chapter, discussion questions and exercises at the end of each chapter, and updated data on gender statistics and policymaking. Chapters One and Two have also been revised to provide more support to readers with less of a background in gender politics. Case studies and web resources are now also provided.
Summary Book Review Crimes, Constables, and Courts :
Download or read book in PDF Crimes, Constables, and Courts written by John C. Weaver and published by McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP. This book was released on 1995-02-08 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Using Hamilton, Ontario, as his model, Weaver makes extensive use of newspaper accounts and police, court, and jail records in a revealing exploration of individual crime cases and overall trends in crime. Tracing the origin and evolution of courts, juries, police, and punishments, Weaver takes into account various social and cultural issues. For example, he shows how increasing centralization and professionalization of the criminal justice system and police have deprived communities of input, and how the legal system continues to be male dominated and biased against newcomers, strangers, and marginalized social groups. Often critical of the "state," Weaver paints a sympathetic view of police constables, who play an ambiguous role in the community while being saddled with an expanding array of onerous duties. Crimes, Constables, and Courts is history at its best - informative, entertaining, and accessible with a lively human element woven throughout. "Truly outstanding." Rod C. Macleod, Department of History, University of Alberta.

Download or read book in PDF A Balanced Christian Life written by Watchman Nee and published by Christian Fellowship Publishers. This book was released on 1981-12-01 with total page 174 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Ephraim is a cake not turned" (Hosea 7.8). This is a figurative way of saying ‘not balanced’. The cake is burned on the one side, uncooked on the other; on one side it is overdone, on the other, totally undone. The cake is unfit to be eaten and is thus destined to be cast out. Our God is most balanced. He is love and He is light. Our Lord Jesus is full of grace and full of truth. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of wisdom as well as of revelation. In creation, God "hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with a span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and the hills in a balance" (Is. 40.12). Concerning redemption, it is said that "mercy and truth are met together, righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth springeth out of the earth; and righteousness hath looked down from heaven" (Ps. 85.10,11). The new creation, therefore, must be well balanced. In this present volume, Watchman Nee attempts to show from God’s word the perfect equilibrium of divine truth. Human nature, however, is prone to emphasize one side to the exclusion of the other side of truth. This has caused much confusion and many problems among God’s people. It is essential that we know the balance of truth and hold on to both sides so that our Christian life may be well rounded as God has ordained. The contents of the book opens with a treatment of the balance between the gate and the way; continues with a presentation of the balance between the objective and the subjective; includes a discussion on the work inward and the work outward in the Christian life, as well as on the rest given and the rest found as promised by Christ; contemplates the other side of prayer frequently neglected, namely, to watch; and concentrates on the other less emphasized aspect of the trespass-offering, that of restoration. The book then provides a commentary on the contrast between the truly meek and the spiritually poor, and finally concludes with a consideration of the equilibrium that is so necessary between the believer’s faith and the believer’s walk. May all who read this volume be brought into a balanced Christian life.

Book excerpt: For the people of Freemont Indiana, Henry Fontaine is their most enduring claim to fame. After a childhood spent as one of Freemont's poorest farm boys, Henry rose from obscurity to become one of the most influential movie stars of the 1960's, only to lose his life in a tragic motorcycle accident at age twenty-five. Inspired by the films of Henry Fontaine, Lucy Cole has created the Fontaine Gallery, a museum of sorts that boasts the most comprehensive collection of Fontaine artifacts and memorabilia in the world. Lucy has always had a special love for Henry and believes that everyone else in Freemont does as well. But someone is harboring a dark hatred for the long-dead film star, and after Fontaine's remains are stolen from the local cemetery, Lucy vows to do what she can to find out who's responsible. She soon discovers that Freemont is a town plagued with crooked police, violent residents, and hidden dangers. What begins as a simple search for local vandals soon grows into a deeper mystery as Lucy learns the truth about Henry Fontaine. He hadn't died in a motorcycle accident. He was murdered, and the killer may be close.

Book excerpt: As we move into the next books in the series, I am probably skirting very close to the edge of what would be one of the symptoms of my condition. But it was very hard to leave much of this material out for a number of reasons. The first of these is that one cannot describe the lust for life that can be obtained when suffering the extremes of some conditions, such as manic depression, and some of the insights one discovers in the peaks of these conditions can be just as the book states it. That is to say if one has clarity during these times. Much of the material I have written during these times are actually during such experiences, but in hindsight, during editing, the material appears so comprehensive and logical I decided to include it to really give one insight into some true inner workings of the mind and the bigger issues we can face in our lives.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Though it is simple and obvious, you may not understand the incredible importance of the way of nothing.
