Summary Book Review Democracy May Not Exist But We'll Miss it When It's Gone :

Download or read book Democracy May Not Exist But We'll Miss it When It's Gone written by Astra Taylor and published by Verso Books. This book was released on 2019-10-15 with total page 425 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Democracy is in crisis. In every major company it has been stole by elites or in the hands of strong men. In democracy's name we see a raft of policies that spread inequality and xenophobia worldwide. It is clear that democracy - the principle of government by and for the people - is not living up to its promise. In fact, real democracy- inclusive and egalitarian - has in fact never existed. In this urgent and engaging book, Astra Taylor invites us to re-examine the term. Is democracy a means or an end? A process or a set of desired outcomes? What if the those outcomes, whatever they may be - peace, prosperity, equality, liberty, an engaged citizenry - can be achieved by non-democratic means? Or if an election leads to a terrible outcome? If democracy means rule by the people, what does it mean to rule and who counts as the people? The inherent paradoxes are too often unnamed and unrecognized. But to ignore them is no longer possible. Democracy May Not Exist, but We'll Miss It When It's Gone offers a better understanding of what is possible, what we want, and why democracy is so hard to realize.

I took some of my poetry and used them as an outline to write stories. Some are embellishments with truth, but I hope they are entertaining. I hope to write a second book of short stories shortly, but until then, I hope you enjoy my poetry and short stories. Thank you for reading my books.

Download or read book Sixty Years of Jump Racing written by Robin Oakley and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2017-03-09 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Robin Oakley brings alive the colourful world of those who ride and train jumping horses. With elegant production and gripping images The History of Jump Racing chronicles the social and economic changes which have brought the sport's ups and downs-like the development of sponsorships and syndicate ownership, the near loss of the Grand National, the growing domination of the Cheltenham Festival and the growth of all-weather racing to meet the bookies' demands for betting shop fodder. Pace and colour is provided by stories of the horses who have been taken to the heart of racing crowds, like the Irish-trained hurdler Istabraq and Best Mate, the three-times winner of the Cheltenham Gold Cup for England. Famous rivalries and memorable races are re-lived and key victories revisited in portraits of and interviews with the owners, jockeys and trainers who have dominated the sport. The emphasis will be largely on the past fifty years-from Arkle to Tony McCoy-but a significant introduction by Edward Gillespie encapsulates the past history of what was previously known as 'National Hunt Racing' and sets the stories in context. .

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Providing an assessment of Jewish identity, this volume presents critical engagements with a number of Jewish writers and filmmakers from a variety of European countries, including Austria, France, Germany, Poland, and the UK. The novels and films discussed explore the meaning of being Jewish in Europe today, and investigate the extent to which this experience is shaped by factors that lie outside the national context, notably by the relationship to Israel. As the recent attacks on Charlie Hebdo, and the targeting of a Jewish supermarket in Paris, demonstrate, these questions are more pressing than ever, and will challenge Jews, as well as Jewish writers and intellectuals, as they explore the answers. This book was originally published as a special issue of Jewish Culture and History.

Book excerpt: Lost in the Freudian Forest: A Tragedy of Good Intentions describes the concept of permissive child-rearing practices and the role of every family member. This book is composed of 10 chapters that highlight the tragic breakdown of a woman, Marigold Golem, trapped by her own obsession with a theory and the expectations derived from it that did not match reality. Marigold, is a psychiatrist who, it appeared, was able to combine the role of wife, mother and professional with great success. The family of Marigold and her husband, Trevor Golem, consisted of a boy and girl, fraternal twins born two years after their marriage. Before her marriage, Marigold developed a theory of child rearing derived from Freud and became firmly committed to the view that the rigorous application of this theory would produce enlightened men and women with superior insight who would be everything that her own generation was not. The story presented in this book is an account of the authors’ interviews with Marigold’s twins, Susan and Fred, extracts from Marigold's diary, and some relevant documents that have come into the authors’ possession. This book will be of value to psychiatrists and researchers.

Summary Book Review Never Die Easy :

Download or read book Never Die Easy written by Walter Payton and published by Random House. This book was released on 2001-01-18 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Never die easy. Why run out of bounds and die easy? Make that linebacker pay. It carries into all facets of your life. It's okay to lose, to die, but don't die without trying, without giving it your best." His legacy is towering. Walter Payton—the man they called Sweetness, for the way he ran—remains the most prolific running back in the history of the National Football League, the star of the Chicago Bears' only Super Bowl Championship, eleven times voted the most popular sports figure in Chicago's history. Off the field, he was a devoted father whose charitable foundation benefited tens of thousands of children each year, and who—faced with terminal liver disease—refused to use his celebrity to gain a preferential position for organ donation. Walter Payton was not just a football hero; he was America's hero. Never Die Easy is Walter Payton's autobiography, told from the heart. Growing up poor in Mississippi, he took up football to get girls' attention, and went on to become a Black College All-American at tiny Jackson State (during which time he was also a finalist in a Soul Train dance contest). Drafted by the Bears in 1975, he predicted that he would last only five years but went on to play thirteen extraordinary seasons, a career earning him regular acknowledgment as one of the greatest players in the history of professional football. And when his playing days were over, he approached business and charity endeavors with the same determination and success he had brought to the football field, always putting first his devotion to friends and family. His ultimate battle with illness truly proved him the champion he always had been and prompted a staggering outpouring of love and support from hundreds of thousands of friends and admirers. Written with veteran journalist and author Don Yaeger in the last weeks of Walter Payton's life, Never Die Easy presents Walter's singular voice—warm, plainspoken, funny, self-aware—along with the voices of the friends, family, teammates, and business associates who knew him best at all stages of his life, including his wife, Connie, and their children, Brittney and Jarrett; his teammate and friend Matt Suhey; former Bears head coach Mike Ditka; and many, many others. Walter made Don Yaeger promise that his book would be "inspirational and leave people with some kind of lesson . . . and make sure you spell all the words right." Never Die Easy keeps all those promises.

Download or read book Hooked on You written by Lea Coll and published by Lea Coll. This book was released on 2021-05-01 with total page 282 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I was the bad boy that girls like her were attracted to... The new Assistant U.S. Attorney was the last person I needed in my business... or my bar. The way she walked in wearing a tight suit and red power heels, flashing that badge should be illegal. Asking her for help was a mistake. Wanting her was a complication, one that I couldn't afford. We were from two different worlds. Taylor was spoiled, privileged and in way over her head. I was just the bad boy that girls like her were attracted to, a passing phase. An itch to scratch. I was no good for her and never would be. Hooked on You was previously titled Easy Moves, and is the prequel to the Annapolis Harbor Series. Praise for Hooked on You: What a beautifully developed story of growth and demon slaying and trust and hope and friendship and love!! The story was both poignant and hopeful all in one giant swoop! I could not get enough of this romance journey because it was more than a romance journey. SO MUCH MORE. Absolute amazeballs!" -OMG Reads "Gabe and Taylor are COMPLETE opposites and this book is an emotional journey that you do not want to miss." -GA Book LoverX "An amazing read about love and family!" - The Book Fairy Reviews "I was totally hooked and intrigued throughout this addictive page turner, and this gifted author has done an amazing job in penning this tale which I highly recommend for all." - Goodreads reviewer "This book is amazing and has wonderful characters. If you love a story about bad boys loving good girls then this book is for you." - Moonshine Book Blog For fans of Melanie Harlow.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: HARDCOVER So have a care, or petition an inquiry. Remember how certain individuals were discriminated against by upper ship officers, who let this continue for years, without understanding. Feel the disgust as the injustice exacerbated as the number of personnel increased. Probe the incompetent union reps who pretended indifference and compounded the problems. Who am I? The first Black employee to be Chief Engineer, who was assaulted by a pro boxer, who the company never charged. The Racial Discrimination are documented inside the pages of this book. The details of abuse, oppression, and distress endured while working the ships as they sailed thru the waters of BC. As Bligh made Christian forever relevant with the Bounty and Bligh's mistreatment of his crew, so too has this company made my name relevant with the Ferries, where I continued to suffer without an advocate to my claims for retribution... and thereby I became, from January 1969 until June 2004, the "BLACK mark on their Lily White Sides"
