American Indians and the Law

by N. Bruce Duthu

A perfect introduction to a vital subject very few Americans understand-the constitutional status of American Indians Few American s know that Indian tribes have a legal status unique among America's distinct racial and ethnic groups: they are sovereign governments who engage in relations with Congress. This peculiar arrangement has led to frequent legal and political disputes-indeed, the history of American Indians and American law has been one of clashing values and sometimes uneasy compromise. In this clear-sighted account, American Indian scholar N. Bruce Duthu explains the landmark cases in Indian law of the past two centuries. Exploring subjects as diverse as jurisdictional authority, control of environmental resources, and the regulations that allow the operation of gambling casinos, American Indians and the Law gives us an accessible entry point into a vital facet of Indian history. .

A Whole New Mind

by Daniel H. Pink

Lawyers. Accountants. Software engineers. That's what Mom and Dad encouraged us to become. They were wrong. Gone is the age of "left-brain" dominance. The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: designers, inventors, teachers, storytellers-creative and empathic "right-brain" thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn't. Drawing on research from around the advanced world, Daniel Pink outlines the six fundamentally human abilities that are essential for professional success and personal fulfillment-and reveals how to master them. From a laughter club in Bombay, to an inner-city high school devoted to design, to a lesson on how to detect an insincere smile, A Whole New Mind takes listeners to a daring new place, and offers a provocative and urgent new way of thinking about a future that has already arrived. "This book is a miracle. Completely original and profound. " - Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence "A very important, convincingly argued and mind-altering book. " - Po Bronson, author of What Should I Do With My Life?

Basilica

by R A Scotti

In 1506, the ambitious Renaissance pope Julius II laid the foundation of a new St. Peter¿s Basilica that would be the defining event of the epoch. To build his grand church, the pope razed the most sacred shrine in Europe -- the original St. Peter¿s, erected by the emperor Constantine more than a millennium before. Here, Scotti takes us through the construction of the new basilica, an endeavor that spanned two centuries and was marred by intrigues, assassination attempts, decadence, and a sack of Rome. The popes who built St. Peter¿s coaxed and commanded the greatest work from the giants of the Renaissance and Baroque: Michelangelo, Bramante, and his protégé Raphael; the architect Giacomo della Porta; and the prodigy Bernini.

Excerpt from book: faced each other. Simultaneously their heads bent forward, their hands crossed upon their breasts, and, speaking together, they said aloud this simple grace: Father of all?God ?what we have here is of thee; take our thanks and bless us, that we may continue to do thy will. With the last word they raised their eyes, and looked at each other in wonder. Each had spoken in a language never before heard by the others; yet each understood perfectly what was said. Their souls thrilled with divine emotion; for by the miracle they recognized the Divine Presence. CHAPTER III. To speak in the style of the period, the meeting just described took place in the year of Rome 747. The month was December, and winter reigned over all the regions east of the Mediterranean. Such as ride upon the desert in this season go not far until smitten with a keen appetite. The company under the little tent were not exceptions to the rule. They were hungry, and ate heartily; and, after the wine, they talked. To a wayfarer in a strange land nothing is so sweet as to hear his name on the tongue of a friend, said the Egyptian, who assumed to be president of the repast. Before us lie many days of companionship. It is time we knew each other. So, if it be agreeable, he who came last shall be first to speak. Then, slowly at first, like one watchful of himself, the Greek began: What I have to tell, my brethren, is so strange that I hardly know where to begin or what I may with propriety speak. I do not yet understand myself. The most I am sure of is that I am doing a Master's will, and that the service is a constant ecstasy. When I think of the purpose I am sent to fulfil, there is in me a joy so inexpressible that I know the will is God's. The good man paused, unable to proceed, while t. . .

Plays by George Bernard Shaw

by George Bernard Shaw Norman Lloyd Eric Bentley

George Bernard Shaw demanded truth and despised convention. He punctured hollow pretensions and smug prudishness--coating his criticism with ingenious and irreverent wit. In Mrs. Warren's Profession, Arms and the Man, Candida, and Man and Superman, the great playwright satirizes society, military heroism, marriage, and the pursuit of man by woman. From a social, literary, and theatrical standpoint, these four plays are among the foremost dramas of the age--as intellectually stimulating as they are thoroughly enjoyable. "My way of joking is to tell the truth: It is the funniest joke in the world."--G. B. Shaw With an Introduction by Eric Bentley and an Afterword by Norman Lloyd

Travels of Marco Polo

by Marco Polo Howard Mittelmark Milton Rugoff

His journey through the East began in 1271--when, still a teenager, he set out of Venice and found himself traversing the most exotic countries. His acceptance into the court of the great emperor Kublai Khan, and his service to the vast and dazzling Mongol empire, led him to places as far away as Tibet and Burma, lands rich with gems and gold and silk, but virtually unknown to Europeans. Later, as a prisoner of war, Marco Polo would record the details of his remarkable travels across harsh deserts, great mountain ranges, and dangerous seas, as well as of his encounters with beasts and birds, plants and people. His amazing chronicle is both fascinating and awe-inspiring--and still serves as the most vivid depiction of the mysterious East in the Middle Ages. Edited and with an Introduction by Milton Rugoff and an Afterword by Howard Mittelmark
