அக்பர்: Isländernes Lovbog I Fristatens Tid. Text I, Volume 1...

by என். சொக்கன்

"பதிமூன்று வயதில் அக்பர் ஆட்சியில், அமரவைக்கப்பட்டார். ஆட்சி நிறைவடையும்போது, பெரும்பாலான வடக்கு மற்றும் மத்திய இந்தியா முகலாயப் பேரரசின் ஆட்சியின் கீழ் முதல் முறையாக வந்து சேர்ந்திருந்தது. வீரத்தின் விளைவாக மட்டுமே பெறப்பட்டது அல்ல இந்த வெற்றி. மிகச் சிறந்த போர்வீரராக இருந்த அதே சமயம், இளகிய மனம் கொண்டவராகவும் கனிவானவராகவும் அக்பர் திகழ்ந்தார். இஸ்லாமிய ஆட்சியாளர்கள் மத்தியில் இவர் அளவுக்குப் பரந்த மனமும் மதச் சகிப்புத்தன்மையும் கொண்ட இன்னொருவர் இல்லை. எழுதப் படிக்கத் தெரியாதவர் என்றபோதும் அக்பர் அளவுக்குப் புத்தகங்களை ஆர்வத்துடன் சேகரித்த, நுணுக்கமாகக் கலைகளை ஆதரித்த இன்னொருவரைக் காண்பது அரிது. முகலாய மன்னர்களில் சிறந்தவராகவும், இந்தியாவை ஆண்ட சிறந்த ஆட்சியாளர்களில் ஒருவராகவும், உலக அளவில் தலை சிறந்த மன்னராகவும் அக்பர் திகழ்வதற்குக் காரணம், அவருடைய அசாதாரணமான வாழ்க்கை. இந்தப் புத்தகம் அக்பர் குறித்த ஓர் எளிய அறிமுகத்தை சுவாரஸ்யமான முறையில் அளிக்கிறது." கிழக்கு பதிப்பகம் | Kizhakku pathippagam

द लिटिल वॉइस: A Rebellious Novel

by Joss Sheldon Aayushi Sharma

प्रिय पाठक, मेरे चरित्र को दो विरोधी ताकतों द्वारा आकार दिया गया है; सामाजिक मानदंडों के अनुरूप ढलने का दबाव, और खुद के साथ ईमानदार रहने का दबाव। सच कहूं तो, इन ताकतों ने वाकई में मुझे खींच-खाच के तोड़ कर रख दिया है। उन्होंने मुझे एक तरफ़ खींचा और फिर दूसरी तरफ़। कई बार, उन्होंने मुझे अपने सम्पूर्ण अस्तित्व पर ही सवाल उठाने पर मजबूर कर दिया। लेकिन कृपया यह बिलकुल न सोचे की मैं गुस्सा या उदास हूँ। मैं नहीं हूँ। क्योंकि विपत्ति के माध्यम से ज्ञान आता है। मैंने काफ़ी कुछ झेला है, यह सच है। लेकिन मैंने अपने दर्द से सीखा है। मैं एक बेहतर इंसान बन गया हूँ। अब, पहली बार, मैं अपनी कहानी बताने के लिए तैयार हूँ। शायद यह आपको प्रेरणा प्रदान करे। शायद यह आपको पूर्णतः एक नए तरीके से सोचने के लिए प्रोत्साहित करे। शायद यह ऐसा न करे। यह पता लगाने का बस एक ही तरीका है... किताब का आनंद लें, य

« L’Union fait la force! »: L’Union Saint-Joseph d’Ottawa/du Canada 1863-1920 (Collection Amérique française)

by Pierrick Labbé

En 1863, un groupe de travailleurs originaires du Québec et domiciliés à Ottawa décident de fonder une association de prévoyance pour aider leurs prochains dans le besoin. En s'inspirant de leurs expériences respectives au sein d'associations de prévoyance québécoises, les fondateurs établissent une première société de secours mutuels canadienne-française à Ottawa : l'Union Saint-Joseph d'Ottawa. Malgré une naissance et des débuts modestes, cette association connaîtra une grande histoire. Elle deviendra l'une des plus grandes sociétés fraternelles nationales, avec des ramifications dans plus de 600 communautés canadiennes-françaises du Canada et des États-Unis. Cet ouvrage analyse la fondation de l'Union Saint-Joseph d'Ottawa et son évolution entre 1863 et 1920. Durant cette période, cette petite association locale, dont les activités visent essentiellement le secours de la classe populaire, évolue pour devenir une grande société fraternelle nationale vouée à la sauvegarde des intérêts des Canadiens français. L'essentiel de ces mutations survient à la fin du XIXe siècle, alors qu'une petite élite entreprend des réformes administratives qui changent la manière de gérer la mutualité. Cette élite en profite également pour reformuler le projet social de l'association et ses objectifs afin de transformer l'Union Saint-Joseph en un instrument de lutte pour la survivance canadienne-française.

by Martín Moreno

El libro que los electores, votantes indecisos y mexicanos en general deben leer de cara a la elección presidencial. ¡Basta de conformismo! La decisión estará en nuestras manos: cambio radical o dictadura perfecta. Bajo las herramientas periodísticas necesarias para ofrecerle al lector el contexto de la próxima elección presidencial: alternativas, riesgos y escenarios, este libro está diseñado para que se tengan mayores y mejores elementos de información, análisis y reflexión, sobre los cuales casi 86 millones de mexicanos tomarán la gran decisión sexenal. Este trabajo de fondo revela y transparenta -con reporteo, cifras, estadísticas, entrevistas, testimonios, textos y gráficas-, asuntos que los periodistas están obligados a investigar y que los lectores, electores y votantes indecisos, deben conocer antes de sufragar: ¿Qué encuestas fallaron en 2012 y no son confiables? ¿Cuál será la estrategia de López Obrador el uno de julio? ¿A quién representa realmente José Antonio Meade? ¿Viene una derrota inevitable para el PRI? ¿Por qué no hay que descartar a Ricardo Anaya? ¿Cuál sería el programa de gobierno de Margarita Zavala? ¿Son confiables nuestras autoridades electorales? "El cambio es AMLO": Jorge Castañeda. "Meade es un candidato secuestrado": Alfonso Zárate. "Yo sí investigaré a Peña Nieto": Margarita Zavala. "El riesgo de que el PRI pierda la elección presidencial es alto": Eduardo Huchim. "Hay un ambiente de encono y de polarización, mayor que al de 2006": José Antonio Crespo. "Meade es candidato por necesidad política del PRI": Félix Fuentes. Es parte de lo que aporta este libro. Votar es nuestra obligación, no una opción. Y bajo esta premisa, Martín Moreno nos ofrece no una guía electoral, sino un trabajo profesional con rigor periodístico, para definir nuestro futuro: cambiamos o seguimos hundidos: ¡Cambio radical o dictadura perfecta!

10 Books that Screwed Up the World: And 5 Others That Didn't Help

by Benjamin Wiker

You've heard of the "Great Books"?These are their evil opposites. From Machiavelli's The Prince to Karl Marx's The Communist Manifesto to Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male, these "influential" books have led to war, genocide, totalitarian oppression, family breakdown, and disastrous social experiments. And yet these authors' bad ideas are still popular and pervasive--in fact, they might influence your own thinking without your realizing it. Here with the antidote is Professor Benjamin Wiker. In his scintillating new book, 10 Books That Screwed Up the World (And 5 Others That Didn't Help), he seizes each of these evil books by its malignant heart and exposes it to the light of day. In this witty, learned, and provocative exposé, you'll learn:* Why Machiavelli's The Prince was the inspiration for a long list of tyrannies (Stalin had it on his nightstand)* How Descartes' Discourse on Method "proved" God's existence only by making Him a creation of our own ego* How Hobbes' Leviathan led to the belief that we have a "right" to whatever we want* Why Marx and Engels's Communist Manifesto could win the award for the most malicious book ever written* How Darwin's The Descent of Man proves he intended "survival of the fittest" to be applied to human society* How Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil issued the call for a world ruled solely by the "will to power"* How Hitler's Mein Kampf was a kind of "spiritualized Darwinism" that accounts for his genocidal anti-Semitism* How the pansexual paradise described in Margaret Mead's Coming of Age in Samoa turned out to be a creation of her own sexual confusions and aspirations* Why Alfred Kinsey's Sexual Behavior in the Human Male was simply autobiography masquerading as scienceWitty, shocking, and instructive, 10 Books That Screwed Up the World offers a quick education on the worst ideas in human history--and how we can avoid them in the future.

10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Bank

by Kevin Danaher Anuradha Mittal

A veritable "Globalization for Dummies," 10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Banklays bare the most common myths of globalization in a clear and understandable way. Looking with hope to grassroots movement-building on a global scale, Danaher presents ten arguments for abolishing the IMF and World Bank and replacing them with democratic institutions that would make the global economy more accountable to an informed and active citizenry. Conceived as an effort to educate the public about how international institutions of "free trade" are widening the gap between the rich and poor globally, Danaher reveals how the lending policies of the IMF and the World Bank fail to benefit Third World peoples, and instead line the pockets of undemocratic rulers and western corporations while threatening local democracies and forcing cuts to social programs.Through anecdotes, analysis, and innovative ideas, Danaher argues that the IMF and the World Bank undermine our most basic democratic values, and calls for reframing the terms on which international economic institutions are operated using the principles of environmental sustainability, social justice, and human rights.

100 Days of Hope and Fear: How Scotland's Referendum Was Lost And Won

by David Torrance

Was it simply a victory for fear over hope?How did the Better Together campaign come so close to losing it?How did the Yes campaign come so close to winning it?What can the people of Scotland – and other aspirant nations – learn from this seismic democratic event? Scotland’s independence referendum on 18 September 2014 was the most significant ballot in Scotland’s history. The 100 days up to 18 September was the official campaign period and the world’s media was watching. David Torrance was there throughout, in front of the cameras, on the radio, in the newspapers, at the debates and gatherings, privy to some of the behind-the-scenes manoeuvrings.A passionate federalist at heart, described disparagingly by the outgoing First Minister as ‘Tory-leaning’, Torrance made a valiant attempt to remain ‘professionally neutral’ throughout. His commentary and analysis as the campaign went through its many twists and turns was always insightful, if not always popular.

The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century

by Peter Dreier

A hundred years ago, any soapbox orator who called for womenOCOs suffrage, laws protecting the environment, an end to lynching, or a federal minimum wage was considered a utopian dreamer or a dangerous socialist. Now we take these ideas for granted? because the radical ideas of one generation are often the common sense of the next. We all stand on the shoulders of earlier generations of radicals and reformers who challenged the status quo of their day. Unfortunately, most Americans know little of this progressive history. It isnOCOt taught in most high schools. You canOCOt find it on the major television networks. In popular media, the most persistent interpreter of AmericaOCOs radical past is Glenn Beck, who teaches viewers a wildly inaccurate history of unions, civil rights, and the American Left. "The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century," a colorful and witty history of the most influential progressive leaders of the twentieth century and beyond, is the perfect antidote.

It all feels so random to everyone except Genesis. She knows they were targeted for a reason. And that reason is her. Now, as the hours count down, only one thing’s for certain: If the Miami hostages can’t thwart their captors’ plan, no one will make it out alive.Tapping into our darkest fears while exploring issues of injustice, loss, and the courage to fight for what matters most, this thrilling read is perfect for fans of Nova Ren Suma, Becca Fitzpatrick, and Jennifer L. Armentrout.

100 Questions about Women and Politics

by Manon Tremblay

Both yesterday's suffragists and today's feminists have battled for women to vote and hold office, and their successes have made it possible for countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Germany, Iceland, Liberia, and the United Kingdom to have female heads of state. Despite these notable advances, women are still largely underrepresented in parliaments and governments around the world. Why, after so many years of feminist struggle, are women still obstructed from full political citizenship by a glass ceiling? Manon Tremblay's 100 Questions about Women and Politics discusses electoral politics in Canada and abroad, focusing on women's rights to vote and run for office in legislative elections, political parties, voting systems, electoral quotas for women, and participation in parliaments and governments. Against a background of observations taken from academic research, Tremblay uses an innovative approach by dividing her book into 100 questions and answers to address a range of important issues. Are electorates sexist or lesbophobic? Are family responsibilities a real obstacle to women's engagement in politics? What strategies are available to increase the number of female politicians? Are gender quotas democratic? Once elected to office, do women represent women? How does women's political citizenship in Canada compare to that in other countries? A timely book on the unfinished work of representative democracy, 100 Questions about Women and Politics takes a comprehensive yet concise approach to demystifying the major issues dominating the study of gender and government.

100 Years of NCVO and Voluntary Action: Idealists and Realists

by Justin Davis Smith

This book explores the rich history of voluntary action in the United Kingdom over the past 100 years, through the lens of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), which celebrates its centenary in 2019. From its establishment at the end of the First World War, through the creation of the Welfare State in the middle of the twentieth century, to New Labour and the Big Society at the beginning of this century, NCVO has been at the forefront of major developments within society and the voluntary movement. The book examines its many successes, including its role in establishing high-profile charities such as Age Concern, the Youth Hostels Association, and National Association of Citizens’ Advice Bureaux. It charts the development of closer relations with the state, resulting in growing awareness of the value of voluntary action, increased funding, and beneficial changes to public policy, tax and charity law. But it also explores the criticisms NCVO has faced, in particular that by pursuing a partnership agenda and championing professionalisation, it has contributed to an erosion of the movement’s independence and distinctiveness.
