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% Less Democracy: Why You Should Trust Elites a Little More and the Masses a Little Less

by Garett Jones

During the 2016 presidential election, both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders argued that elites were hurting the economy. But, drawing together evidence and theory from across economics, political science, and even finance, Garett Jones says otherwise. In 10% Less Democracy, he makes the case that the richest, most democratic nations would be better off if they slightly reduced accountability to the voting public, turning up the dial on elite influence. To do this, Jones builds on three foundational lines of evidence in areas where he has personal experience. First, as a former staffer in the U.S. Senate, he saw how senators voted differently as elections grew closer. Second, as a macroeconomist, Jones knows the merits of "independent" central banks, which sit apart from the political process and are controlled by powerful insiders. The consensus of the field is that this detached, technocratic approach has worked far better than more political and democratic banking systems. Third, his previous research on the effects of cognitive skills on political, social, and economic systems revealed many ways in which well-informed voters improve government. Discerning repeated patterns, Jones draws out practical suggestions for fine-tuning, focusing on the length of political terms, the independence of government agencies, the weight that voting systems give to the more-educated, and the value of listening more closely to a group of farsighted stakeholders with real skin in the game—a nation's sovereign bondholders. Accessible to political news junkies while firmly rooted and rigorous, 10% Less Democracy will fuel the national conversation about what optimal government looks like.

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.

The 10 Rules of Successful Nations

by Ruchir Sharma

The 10 Rules of Successful Nations offers a pithy guide to real-world economics, adapted from the New York Times bestseller The Rise and Fall of Nations. A wake-up call to economists who failed to foresee every recent crisis, including the cataclysm of 2008, The 10 Rules of Successful Nations is a slim primer full of pioneering insights on the political, economic, and social habits of successful nations. Distilled from Sharma’s quarter century traveling the world as a writer and investor, his rules challenge conventional textbook thinking on what matters—and what doesn’t—for a strong economy. He shows why successful nations embrace robots and immigrants, prefer democratic leaders to autocrats, elect charismatic reformers over technocrats, and pay no mind to the debate about big versus small government. He explains why rising stock prices matter as much or more than food prices, which measure of debt is the best predictor of economic crises, and why no one number can accurately capture the value of a currency. He also demonstrates how a close reading of the Forbes billionaire lists can offer the clearest real-time warning of populist revolts against the wealthy. Updated with brand-new data, 10 Rules reimagines economics as a practical art, giving general readers as well as political and business leaders a quick guide to the most important forces that shape a nation’s future.

100 Bible Verses That Made America: Defining Moments That Shaped Our Enduring Foundation of Faith

by Robert Morgan

The Bible has played a starring role in American history from our nation&’s beginnings. When George Washington was sworn into office as our first president, he did not place his hand on the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States, as hallowed as those documents are. Instead, he swore upon and even kissed the Bible to sanctify this important moment. The Bible, Washington knew, had ushered American history to this point.Trying to explain American history without its Bible is like trying to understand the human body without its bloodstream. Had there been no Bible, there would be no America as we know it. It is the Bible that made America.While not every Founding Father was a Christian, a Bible-believer, or a paragon of virtue and not every leader has honored the Bible nor appreciated its influence, there is an undeniable history of leaders who&’ve been intimately acquainted with the contents of the Bible, who&’ve studied its scriptures and respected its teachings. Journey with Robert J. Morgan as he teaches about the Bible&’s role in the defining moments and impact on the people of our nation&’s history, reminding us of the beauty at the intersection of faith and country and reigniting our hearts&’ passions for both.

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.
