The first 40 days after the birth of a child offer an essential and fleeting period of rest and recovery for the new mother.

Stress Test: Reflections on Financial Crises

1079 руб.
As president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and then as President Barack Obama's secretary of the Treasury, Timothy F. Geithner helped the United States navigate the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, from boom to bust to rescue to recovery. In a candid, riveting, and historically illuminating memoir, he takes readers behind the scenes of the crisis, explaining the hard choices and politically unpalatable decisions he made to repair a broken financial system and prevent the collapse of the Main Street economy. This is the inside story of how a small group of policy makers-in a thick fog of uncertainty, with unimaginably high stakes-helped avoid a second depression but lost the American people doing it. Stress Test is also a valuable guide to how governments can better manage financial crises, because this one won't be the last. Stress Test reveals a side of Secretary Geithner the public has never seen, starting with his childhood as an American abroad. He recounts his early days as a young Treasury official helping to fight the international financial crises of the 1990s, then describes what he saw, what he did, and what he missed at the New York Fed before the Wall Street boom went bust. He takes readers inside the room as the crisis began, intensified, and burned out of control, discussing the most controversial episodes of his tenures at the New York Fed and the Treasury, including the rescue of Bear Stearns; the harrowing weekend when Lehman Brothers failed; the searing crucible of the AIG rescue as well as the furor over the firm's lavish bonuses; the battles inside the Obama administration over his widely criticized but ultimately successful plan to end the crisis; and the bracing fight for the most sweeping financial reforms in more than seventy years. Secretary Geithner also describes the aftershocks of the crisis, including the administration's efforts to address high unemployment, a series of brutal political battles over deficits and debt, and the drama over Europe's repeated flirtations with the economic abyss. Secretary Geithner is not a politician, but he has things to say about politics-the silliness, the nastiness, the toll it took on his family. But in the end, Stress Test is a hopeful story about public service. In this revealing memoir, Tim Geithner explains how America withstood the ultimate stress test of its political and financial systems.

3693 руб.
Abraham's Journey, the ninth in the series MeOtzar HoRav: Selected Writings of Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, focuses on the life of Avraham Avinu, founding patriarch of the Jewish People. Abraham is not only the first Jew, but also a historical prototype, his experiences and actions foreshadowing critical patterns in the history of his people. In addition, Abraham serves as a spiritual and ethical model to his descendants. He is a teacher, a paragon of kindness, a lonely iconoclast, a master of sacrifice, and a knight of faith. Through careful exegesis of verses, illuminating analyses of character, and insightful readings of classical commentators, the essays in this book seek both the eternal and the contemporary messages of the Abraham story.

Manfred Kets de Vries is in a unique and special position to analyze leadership, human development, behavior, and what it takes to be an outstanding leader. Manfred's book, like all his other works, is worth reading several times, preserving it for reading again and again and to reflect and learn. – B Muthuraman, Managing Director, Tata Steel Ltd. «At a very practical level [Manfred Kets de vries] has affected for the better the lives of probably more leaders-and therefore their followers-than anyone else alive. In this book, in an empathic and thoroughly compelling way, he draws on his long coaching career and deeply personal experiences of his own to throw light on leadership, the relationship between leaders and followers, and the challenges we all must face. If you care about these things (and who does not?). you will not be able to put this book down.» – John Whitehead, Secretary to the Treasury, New Zealand «This book is a real Bible for anyone striving not only to live with, but to comprehend all the subtleties, ideals, and life roles of a leader in modern society.» – Nicholas Chitov, CEO of City Mortgage Bank «Through the clinical lens which Manfred Kets de Vries so aptly applies to business settings, the reader is guaranteed to meet himself, and-who knows-intrigued to go further on the journey of self-examination.» – Philippe Haspeslagh, Dean, Vlerick Leuven gent Management School «In this important book, [Manfred Kets de Vries] pauses to look back and review what he has learned over the years. The result is remarkably insightful on several counts; readers will learn much on leadership and career development. they will also better understand the personal and professional development of a giant among leadership scholars.» – Jean-Francois Manzoni, Professor of Leadership and Organizational development, IMD «Through a unique understanding of the 'inner theater,' Manfred Kets de Vries provokes leaders to reflect on drivers of their behavior and of those around them. This book provides insight o the tools needed to create high performance teams and achieve personal fulfillment throughout a journey in leadership.» – Paul Geason, group Managing Director, Telstra «Whether you are a leader or a follower, after having read this book you will be the opposite, or both. And if not, you will at least understand the neurotic leader, whether it is in your boos, or in yourself. Maybe even in your spouse.» – Christian Dreyer, CEO, Hansen Sicherheitstechnik AG, Munich «This new book is a collection of Manfred's intelligence and wisdom. His concept of constructive narcissism will help a lot of leaders to understand themselves and others.

Bookless in Baghdad: Reflections on Writing and Writers

3207 руб.
Book Description'A fluid and powerful writer, one of the best in a generation of Indian authors' (New York Times Book Review), Shashi Tharoor, the acclaimed author of six books, all published by Arcade, is once again at his provocative best. Supremely personal, yet always probing and analytical, this brilliant collection is part memoir, part essay and literary criticism. In the title piece, we learn what Iraqis go through in their beleaguered land merely to get hold of a book, and how selling books from their own libraries on the street helps some put bread on the table. Tharoor reminisces about growing up with books in India and discusses the importance of the Mahabharata in Indian life and history. There is also a poignant homage to Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, whose home was raided by the oppressive military regime while he lay on his deathbed, and who famously said: 'There is only one thing of danger for you here-my poetry!' Pondering world affairs, Tharoor declares that 'the defining features of today's world are the relentless forces of globalization-the same forces used by the terrorists in their macabre dance of death and destruction.' Tharoor's astute views on Salman Rushdie, India's love for P. G. Wodehouse, Kipling, Pushkin, le Carr, V. S. Naipaul, and Winston Churchill make for fascinating reading. His insightful takes on Hollywood and Bollywood will intrigue even the most demanding cinephile. Together, these 39 pieces reveal the inner workings of one of today's most eclectic writers.

Reflections on Judging

3484 руб.
"In Reflections on Judging", Richard Posner distills the experience of his thirty-one years as a judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Surveying how the judiciary has changed since his 1981 appointment, he engages the issues at stake today, suggesting how lawyers should argue cases and judges decide them, how trials can be improved, and, most urgently, how to cope with the dizzying pace of technological advance that makes litigation ever more challenging to judges and lawyers. For Posner, legal formalism presents one of the main obstacles to tackling these problems. Formalist judges – most notably Justice Antonin Scalia – needlessly complicate the legal process by advocating "canons of constructions" (principles for interpreting statutes and the Constitution) that are confusing and self-contradictory. Posner calls instead for a renewed commitment to legal realism, whereby a good judge gathers facts, carefully considers context, and comes to a sensible conclusion that avoids inflicting collateral damage on other areas of the law. This, Posner believes, was the approach of the jurists he most admires and seeks to emulate: Oliver Wendell Holmes, Louis Brandeis, Benjamin Cardozo, Learned Hand, Robert Jackson, and Henry Friendly, and it is an approach that can best resolve our twenty-first-century legal disputes.

Reflections on the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

8780 руб.
The adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by the United Nations General Assembly on 13 September 2007 was acclaimed as a major success for the United Nations system given the extent to which it consolidates and develops the international corpus of indigenous rights. This is the first in-depth academic analysis of this far-reaching instrument. Indigenous representatives have argued that the rights contained in the Declaration, and the processes by which it was formulated, obligate affected States to accept the validity of its provisions and its interpretation of contested concepts (such as 'culture', 'land', 'ownership' and 'self-determination'). This edited collection contains essays written by the main protagonists in the development of the Declaration; indigenous representatives; and field-leading academics. It offers a comprehensive institutional, thematic and regional analysis of the Declaration. In particular, it explores the Declaration's normative resonance for international law and considers the ways in which this international instrument could catalyse institutional action and influence the development of national laws and policies on indigenous issues.

Reflections on Virginia Woolf's Orlando

4550 руб.
This book discusses queer theory as regards the portrayal of Orlando in Virginia Woolf’s novel, "Orlando: A Biography." The character is first analyzed in light of the intersections between gender, race, class, and nation, and subsequently in terms of the poetic persona, understood from both liberal and radical perspectives. The findings show that the character can be understood to destabilize gender fixity in the construction of a poetic persona. Findings also show that there is a conflict in the novel as it presents at the same time a transgressive text and a normatizing subtext, a conflict that must be criticized for its implications in cultural studies regarding queer theories, gender studies, and emancipatory politics.

This work comprises of five essays that I wrote during my undergraduate and postgraduate legal studies. These essays were written on subjects as diverse as Corporate Governance, Insolvency Law, Public Law, Jurisprudence and Public International Law. In the first essay I analyse political forces and orientations as a determinant of corporate governance in the Anglosphere and German models. The second essay analyses the rescue of failing businesses in the light of the successes and failures of the Enterprise Act 2002. The third essay is a discussion on the foundations of contemporary Public Law and goes on to discuss the role of positive constitution and ius publicum. The fourth essay discusses the relevance of the debate between Legal Positivism and Natural Law in the context of fundamental rights. The fifth essay analyses the adequateness of the the concept of attribution in the Law of State Responsibility. I have decided to publish these works in the hope that they assist students, researchers and academics.

New York Times bestselling author Ron Rash demonstrates his superb narrative skills in this suspenseful and evocative tale of two brothers whose lives are altered irrevocably by the events of one long-ago summer, one bewitching young woman—and the secrets that could destroy their lives. While swimming in a secluded creek on a hot Sunday in 1969, sixteen-year-old Eugene and his older brother, Bill, meet the entrancing Ligeia. A sexy, free-spirited redhead from Daytona Beach banished to their small North Carolina town, Ligeia entrances the brothers, especially Eugene, who is drawn to her raw sensuality and rebellious attitude. Eugene begins to move farther and farther away from his brother, the cautious and dutiful Bill, and when Ligeia vanishes as suddenly as she appeared, the growing rift between the two brothers becomes immutable. Decades later, the once close brothers now lead completely different lives. Bill is a gifted and successful surgeon, and a paragon of the community, while Eugene, the town reprobate, is a failed writer and determined alcoholic. When a shocking reminder of the past unexpectedly surfaces, Eugene is plunged back into that fateful summer, and the girl he cannot forget. The deeper Eugene delves into his memories, the closer he comes to finding the truth. But can Eugene’s recollections be trusted? And will the truth set him free and offer salvation . . . or destroy his damaged life and everyone he loves?

This study evolved from an involvement with professional people in a rural and semi-rural environment thereby taking into account the role which the Employee Assistance Programmes (EAP) plays in their professional context of work. Two underlying factors motivate the study. Firstly, that professional needs and capacities of faith, belief and spirituality are not been catered for in the EAPs. Secondly, that an African-Christian wholesome sense making approach provides more satisfactory answers to the lack of faith, belief and spirituality in the EAPs than the modern versions of the classic dualist and tripartite anthropological schemes of soul and body or soul, spirit and body. Furthermore, a wholesome sense making approach supports and tackles people’s wellness and well-being levels more satisfactorily than the classic dualist and tripartite views. An outline of an EAP in which faith leaders and consultants and their programmes are integrated and which contributes to the enhancing of well-being levels and performance management of professional people is described.

ERIC BRISTOW MBE is considered to be the greatest darts player of all time. He was an unmistakable figure on the oche during his 1980s heyday, and became renowned not just for the number of world titles he won but for his arrogance on stage and off it. In this candid account Bristow reveals how darts proved a salvation from his early life as a cat burglar, shoplifter and thug, introducing him to a new world of beer, babes and undreamed of success. And in his rapid rise to the top he gives fascinating insights into the characters that pioneered darts in those early days and how, when his own career began to slide at the end of the decade, he trained his protege Phil 'The Power' Taylor, turning him into the most successful player darts has ever known. Bristow holds nothing back as he reveals his battle with dartitis, a psychological condition which left him unable to let go of the dart and almost destroyed his career; his relationship with girlfriend and former women's world darts champion Maureen Flowers; and his occasional all-too-public falls from grace. Bristow's life story is a thrill-a-minute ride through the raucous world of darts and how it has helped to shape and drive his life over the past forty years.

The news leaves him shattered and frightened--he isn't dying, he thinks, but he might be. Jimmy still loves his music, and he still loves to hustle--his new thing is tracking down old bands, and then finding the people who loved them enough to pay money for their resurrected singles and albums. As he battles his illness on his path through Dublin, he meets two of the Commitments--Outspan, whose own cancer is probably terminal, and Imelda Quirk, still as gorgeous as ever. He is reunited with his brother, learns to play the trumpet, reconnects with his children, decides to live more in the moment. "He had to pack the good days. But he'd started to love the race." This warm, funny novel is about friendship and family, about facing death and opting for life.

In Three Days in January, Bret Baier masterfully casts the period between Eisenhower’s now-prophetic farewell address on the evening of January 17, 1961, and Kennedy’s inauguration on the afternoon of January 20 as the closing act of one of modern America’s greatest leaders—during which Eisenhower urgently sought to prepare both the country and the next president for the challenges ahead.Those three days in January 1961, Baier shows, were the culmination of a lifetime of service that took Ike from rural Kansas to West Point, to the battlefields of World War II, and finally to the Oval Office. When he left the White House, Dwight Eisenhower had done more than perhaps any other modern American to set the nation, in his words, “on our charted course toward permanent peace and human betterment.”On January 17, Eisenhower spoke to the nation in one of the most remarkable farewell speeches in U.S. history. Ike looked to the future, warning Americans against the dangers of elevating partisanship above national interest, excessive government budgets (particularly deficit spending), the expansion of the military-industrial complex, and the creeping political power of special interests. Seeking to ready a new generation for power, Eisenhower intensely advised the forty-three-year-old Kennedy before the inauguration.Baier also reveals how Eisenhower’s two terms changed America forever for the better, and demonstrates how today Ike offers us the model of principled leadership that polls say is so missing in politics. Three Days in January forever makes clear that Eisenhower, an often forgotten giant of U.S. history, still offers vital lessons for our own time and stands as a lasting example of political leadership at its most effective and honorable.

Robert Conquest has been called by Paul Johnson "our greatest living modern historian." As a new century begins, Conquest offers an illuminating examination of our past failures and a guide to where we should go next. Graced with one of the most acute gifts for political prescience since Orwell, Conquest assigns responsibility for our century’s cataclysms not to impersonal economic or social forces but to the distorted ideologies of revolutionary Marxism and National Socialism. The final, sobering chapters of Reflections on a Ravaged Century concern themselves with some coming storms, notably that of the European Union, which Conquest believes is an economic, cultural, and geographical misconception divisive of the West and doomed to failure.

In the immediate aftermath of the September 11,2001 (9\ 11) terrorist strikes in the United States of America and the London bombings of July 7,2005, we have seen range of events that impacted, altered and strengthened the need to discuss and debate questions of peace and security in international relations. The Middle East crisis, the Arab Springs, the growing threat of North Korea nuclear capabilities, the fundamentalist Islamist network in Africa stretching from Somalia, Libya, the 'Boko Haram' upheaval in Nigeria and Darfur crisis in Sudan: all represent topical global security issues. In a period marked by such rapid and fundamental threats to global peace, it has become imperative to seek to encourage the exploration of global and regional problems concerning international security through scholarly lenses. It is most pleasing to report at this stage that in the recent years, there have been a surge of interest in support of the peace movement. The thought for this diary of global conflicts and peace building measures, was motivated after such eruption .

2889 руб.
HOLY MOLY Mackeroly! ...from 3 Art Stamps to the Smithsonian... Reflections on the Business of Art and the Art of Life This book is "business memoir" and is unique in the arts and crafts industry. The author speaks from personal experience of the adventures on the road to creating a home-based art business - one that works because it is created step-by-step, day-by-day. It all started with one rubber stamp that the author's husband bought to make price tags for miniature grapevine wreaths, the original "home business." From there a hobby began, and 3 Southwest art stamps were added to an extremely small "collection" a few months later. What can you do with 3 Southwest stamps? How about a handful of bookmarks? How about a business that gets started because your mother shows those bookmarks to shop owners in Santa Fe - and they actually want to buy them - and sell them? The author is clearly in the business of art and in her book, she is clearly in the business of giving hope - the realistic kind. She obviously loves her lifestyle and is also willing to be honest about it. Is everything about pursuing your dreams a lovely, romantic skip down Pleasantville Lane? Hardly. Gloria dives in and wrestles with the real questions that come up on the sometimes thorny, lonely path. What about the fear of rejection? How about that nagging little thought that if you do pursue your art dreams or any personal dream, you are destined to become a starving artist or the object of ridicule? Does it cost a fortune to get started? Do I need to be a professional with credentials lined up after my name? Where do I start? What if I fail? How can I live with myself if I don't at least try my crazy idea? Who enjoys regret as a permanent state of mind? "Holy Moly..." is not your traditional "business how-to" book. There are plenty of those around. This book is conversational and experiential, and in the spirit of imparting lessons learned along the way, the author invites you to walk with her and then find your own special path.

Reflections on Psychoanalysis Method

As a science, psychoanalysis has as its privileged object of investigation the human soul and all its manifestations, the desiring heart that draws our ways, even when we do not believe or accept the design that is presented, it lays in various manifestations of life, from the beautiful and tasteful creations that make up the culture, to the most disgusting atrocious acts which "common sense" refuses to recognize as a product of human desire, because the human desire is a paradoxical creature, in many ways. The first paradox arises from the desire as it is not exactly a creature – it is not a visible product, it is not an explicit manifestation – but at first as being a creator. It produces the shape of the subject's emotions, its productive logic (or of conception), conceives us as we are. The other, not the least paradox lies in the way is made known. The material in which this essay is based can be divided into two parts: bibliographical and human. The bibliography consists of texts by Fabio Herrmann's own psychoanalytic literature and literature in general.

Remembering God: Reflections on Islam

1690 руб.
Written by the best-selling author of "Islam and the Destiny of Man", "Remembering God" is a profound analysis of the most urgent concerns and questions facing us at the beginning of the twenty-first century. Contrasting modern, secular society with religion and tradition in general and with Islam in particular, Gai Eaton clarifies the essential need for spirituality, religion and values based on eternal principles. The main ideas expounded in 'Remembering God' are that religion is not an isolated part of human life which can be disregarded at will and without consequences; that a total rejection of the past cannot be the basis for the future, and that a true link with heaven modifies all the decisions and actions of society. Touching on religion in principle: metaphysics, knowledge of the divine and of oneself, prayer, the necessity for purifying the ego; and on the application of religion to society: politics, architecture, the environment and gender relations, Gai Eaton illustrates the subtle harmony of a religious perspective and its ability to transform both the individual and society.

BARBARIAN DAYS BARBARIAN DAYS Новинка

BARBARIAN DAYS

1529 руб.
Barbarian Days is William Finnegan's memoir of an obsession, of a complex enchantment. Surfing looks like a sport, but that's only to outsiders. To initiates, it is something else entirely: a beautiful addiction, a morally dangerous pastime, a way of life. Raised in California and Hawaii, Finnegan started surfing as a child. He has chased waves all over the world, wandering for years through the South Pacific, Australia, Asia, Africa. A bookish boy, then an excessively adventurous young man, he went on to become a distinguished writer and war reporter. Barbarian Days takes us deep into unfamiliar worlds, some of them right under our noses--off the coasts of New York and San Francisco--and dramatizes the edgy camaraderie of close male friendships annealed in challenging waves. Finnegan shares stories of life in a whites-only gang in a tough school in Honolulu while his closest friend was a Hawaiian surfer, and of a world turned upside down for kids and adults alike by the social upheavals of the 1960s. He details the intricacies of famous waves and his own apprenticeships to them. Youthful folly--he drops acid while riding huge Honolua Bay on Maui--is served with rueful humor. Their knapsacks crammed with reef charts, he and a buddy bushwhack through Polynesia. They discover while camping on an uninhabited island in Fiji one of the world's greatest waves. As Finnegan's travels take him ever farther afield, he becomes an improbable anthropologist: unpicking the picturesque simplicity of a Samoan fishing village, dissecting the sexual politics of Tongan interactions with Americans and Japanese, navigating the Indonesian black market while nearly succumbing to malaria. Throughout, he surfs, carrying readers with him on rides of harrowing, unprecedented lucidity. Barbarian Days is an old-school adventure story, an intellectual autobiography, a social history, a literary road movie, and an extraordinary exploration of a novice's gradual mastering of a demanding, little-understood art. Today, Finnegan's surfing life is undiminished. Frantically juggling work and family, he chases his enchantment through Long Island ice storms and obscure corners of Madagascar.

Burmese Days, Keep the Aspidistra Flying, Coming Up for Air

909 руб.
Orwell draws on his experience in the Indian Imperial Police for his first novel, BURMESE DAYS, a devastating indictment of British colonial rule (he resigned 'to escape not merely from imperialism but from every form of man's dominion over man', as he later wrote). John Flory, cowardly and self-pitying, makes an unlikely but all-too-human tragic hero as he defies convention and prejudice to befriend an Indian doctor, then shoots himself when the girl who had seemed to promise escape from the stultifying 'lie' of colonial life refuses to marry him. While reporting on the dark side of the Raj, Orwell nonetheless came under the spell of the landscape of the East, and the exotic background of BURMESE DAYS inspired his most lush descriptive writing. ...Back in England, Orwell tackles capitalism, nonconformity and compromise in KEEP THE ASPIDISTRA FLYING. Youthful idealist and would-be author Gordon Comstock rebels against a life of middle-class respectability (symbolized by the aspidistra), abandoning his job with an advertising company to work part-time in a bookshop. But everything goes wrong: alternately proud and self-loathing, he lets himself sink into poverty; he is unable to write; he gets his long-suffering girlfriend pregnant. At the end, respectably married - and with an aspidistra of his own -he is back at his old firm writing copy for deodorant ads. Grimly comic - and again, written from Orwell's own experience, this time of living in the London slums - KEEP THE ASPIDISTRA FLYING is a still-relevant commentary on society's subservience to 'the Money God' and an affirmation of the power of human relationships to survive in spite of it.In COMING UP FOR AIR, George Bowling, married, mortgaged and middle aged, deals with his mid-life crisis by forsaking dull suburbia for a rural idyll. But the fondly remembered village of his childhood has been transformed by the very 'Progress' he seeks to escape: the estate where he used to fish has been built over; the pond turned into a rubbish dump. An old girlfriend fails to recognize him, and she herself is shockingly ravaged by time. Written in 1938-9, COMING UP FOR AIR is permeated with nostalgia for the England of a more tranquil age - before industrialization and capitalism had done their worst - and overshadowed by premonitions of what is to come - 'the war and the after-war, Hitler, Stalin, bombs, machine-guns, food-queues, rubber truncheons'. Above all, it unsparingly confronts the failure of youthful dreams and the impossibility of ever reclaiming the past.

The pension system is of particular importance because they are closely related to life quality and standards (during both, working years and retirement). Another importance issue related to this system in the broader context is the fact that it often becomes significant cost to the government budget especially in the countries that apply the public pension system. Albania has more than 20 years that has passed from a centralized system to free market economy. This transition has brought challenges and obstacles for systems consisting in decision making and implementation of various reforms in economic, social, political, etc.. Many of the economic reforms have shown positive results in Albanian economic growth and development. But on the other hand there are also special systems in the economy, such as the pension system, which despite reforms undertaken over the years, this system has not yet reached stability. This study tries to highlight and find solutions to some issues related to pension system such as population aging, evasion and future reforms.

Anthony Bourdain is a man of many appetites. And for many years, first as a chef, later as a world-traveling chronicler of food and culture on his CNN series Parts Unknown, he has made a profession of understanding the appetites of others. These days, however, if he’s cooking, it’s for family and friends. Appetites, his first cookbook in more than ten years, boils down forty-plus years of professional cooking and globe-trotting to a tight repertoire of personal favorites—dishes that everyone should (at least in Mr. Bourdain’s opinion) know how to cook. Once the supposed "bad boy" of cooking, Mr. Bourdain has, in recent years, become the father of a little girl—a role he has embraced with enthusiasm. After years of traveling more than 200 days a year, he now enjoys entertaining at home. Years of prep lists and the hyper-organization necessary for a restaurant kitchen, however, have caused him, in his words, to have "morphed into a psychotic, anally retentive, bad-tempered Ina Garten." The result is a home-cooking, home-entertaining cookbook like no other, with personal favorites from his own kitchen and from his travels, translated into an effective battle plan that will help you terrify your guests with your breathtaking efficiency.

In Skinheads, John King takes us inside skinhead culture today and explains how it never really went away. Skinheads is the story of a way of life, told through three generations of a family: Terry English, original ska-loving skinhead and boss of a mini-cab firm; Nutty Ray, street-punk skin and active football hooligan; and Lol, son of Terry, nephew of Ray, a fifteen-year-old kid just starting out. Terry is sick and not sure he's going to make his fiftieth birthday, but is kept going by his music, his lovely mod-girl assistant Angie, and his discovery of the abandoned Union Jack Club, which he decides to clean up and re-open. Ray, meanwhile, is out driving mini-cabs and struggling to control his anger; his only release - days out with Chelsea's finest. But when he takes the law into his own hands in an explosion of righteous violence, his future starts to darken. John King's seventh novel draws on nearly forty years of evolving British culture. The skinheads didn't die off: the look went mainstream and their music was accepted and reinvented, while the boys themselves keep misbehaving in the traditional ways. Challenging society's fears and prejudices, Skinheads shows us a group of truly humane characters driven by passion and honour and the culture they love. This is their story.

The Imaginary Girlfriend

From a novelist known for the complexity of his novels - they are also long - comes an autobiography of compelling simplicity; it is also short. Dedicated to the memory of two wrestling coaches and two writer friends, The Imaginary Girlfriend is a lucid portrait of the writers and wrestlers who played a mentor role in John Irving's development as a novelist, a wrestler and a wrestling coach. Moreover, this candid memoir portrays a father's dedication to his children: Irving coached his sons Colin and Brendan to New England championship titles - a championship that, as a competitor, he himself was denied. John Irving began writing and wrestling when he was fourteen. He competed as a wrestler for twenty years, he was certified as a referee for twenty-four and he coached the sport until he was forty-seven. His thirty-three years in wrestling are three times those he spent as a student and a teacher of Creative Writing; yet his concise autobiography details the interrelationship of the disciplines of writing and wrestling - from the days when Irving was a beginner at both pursuits until his fourth wrestling-related surgery at the age of fifty-three. The Imaginary Girlfriend is both a work of the utmost literary accomplishment and a paradigm for living.

The global financial system is in crisis, bankers are in disrepute and Britain is on the brink of a double-dip recession. Now one man, fed up with never-ending tales of greed and corruption, sets out to prove that there is a different way of doing things - by opening his own bank to help inject much-needed life into local businesses. Dave Fishwick is a self-made, straight-talking man from Burnley who hates the banks. Published to tie in with a Channel 4 series of the same name, this is the story of his attempt to set up a simple, no-nonsense bank that actually cares about its customers. Dave plans to put hundreds of thousands of pounds of his own money into the enterprise; he will offer his customers a far better rate of interest than they get on the high street; he will lend to struggling local businesses that the banks don't want to know about; and he aims to bring the Bank of Dave into profit within 180 days. If he succeeds, he'll give whatever he makes to charity. If he fails, he'll make a terrible loss and ruin his hard-earned reputation as a successful businessman. Can one man really take on the banking giants and make a real difference to local businesses and his community? Dave Fishwick certainly hopes so.

God's Salvation in Jesus Christ

1872 руб.
This book makes accessible to everyone the fundamental doctrines that every Christian should know. Because it connects them in a very clear and very simple way, one has only to know how to read to understand what is learned in three years of Bible school. The problem that God had to resolve to save the sinner was really complex: Because of his justice and holiness, God cannot bear the presence of the sinner; but because of his love, he cannot accept the eternal death of those that he created. So, it is in Christ that God has decided to solve this thorny problem: Because Jesus Christ has both the divine nature and human nature, in Christ God reconciles man to Himself. In Christ, the believer is clothed with Christ. God no longer sees him as a sinner, but he sees Christ and His righteousness. And because the believer is in Christ, he is dead and risen with him, and he is now seated with Christ in the presence of God; this is what the resurrection of the dead will manifest a vividly when Christ returns. This is the simplest book ever written on this subject.
