Holding the Man - Timothy Conigrave Preview:

The mid-seventies – and satin baggies and chunky platforms reigned supreme. Jethro Tull did battle with glam-rock for the airwaves. At an all-boys Catholic school in Melbourne, Timothy Conigrave fell wildly and sweetly in love with the captain of the football team. So began a relationship that was to last for 15 years, a love affair that weathered disapproval, separation and, ultimately death. Holding the Man recreates that relationship. With honesty and insight it explores the highs and lows of any partnership: the intimacy, constraints, temptations. And the strength of heart both men had to find when they tested positive to HIV. This is a book as refreshing and uplifting as it is moving; a funny and sad and celebratory account of growing up gay..

Holding the Line - Guy M. Snodgrass Preview:

"This is the memoir America wishes Jim Mattis had written." —The Washington Post An insider's sometimes shocking account of how Defense Secretary James Mattis led the US military through global challenges while serving as a crucial check on the Trump Administration. For nearly two years as Trump's Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis maintained a complicated relationship with the President. A lifelong Marine widely considered to be one of America's greatest generals, Mattis was committed to keeping America safe. Yet he served a President whose actions were frequently unpredictable and impulsive with far-reaching consequences. Often described as the administration's "adult in the room," Mattis has said very little about his difficult role, and since his resignation has kept his views of the President and his policies private. Now, Mattis's former chief speechwriter and communications director, Guy M. Snodgrass, brings readers behind that curtain. Drawing on his seventeen months working with Mattis, Snodgrass reveals how one of the nation's greatest generals walked a political tightrope while leading the world's most powerful military. Snodgrass gives us a fly-on-the-wall view as Mattis... • Reacted when learning about major policy decisions via Twitter rather than from the White House. • Minimized the damage done to our allies and diplomatic partners. • Slow-rolled some of Trump's most controversial measures, with no intention of following through. As the first book written by an insider with firsthand knowledge of key decisions and moments in history, Holding the Line is a must-read for those who care about the presidency and America's national security. It's filled with never-before-told stories that will both alarm and reassure, a testament to the quiet and steady efforts of General Mattis and the dedicated men and women he led at the Department of Defense..

Face to Face Meetings with Jesus Christ (PDF) - Felix Wantang Preview:

We all have questions regarding God’s paradise in heaven; as Christians, there is nothing more disappointing as spending all your life on earth convinced that you will go to Paradise when you die only to arrive there and hear Jesus say to you, “You are not saved; you are going to hell.” There are more than 6,000 spoken languages in the world but one thing that sets heaven apart from the earth is the fact that there is only one language in Heaven. A good knowledge of the Language of Heaven will prepare you to better understand the Holy Bible, the teachings of Jesus Christ, his parables, and the miracles he performed. This book will introduce you to the Language of Heaven, answer your questions about heaven, prepare you for the struggles of this world, and ultimately help to prepare you for Jesus Christ. When you read this book, you will know without any doubts if indeed you are truly saved and ready to enter God’s paradise in Heaven. This book is Volume One of “Face to Face Meetings with Jesus Christ” trilogy and a must-read for every soul. Felix Wantang has been meeting face-to-face with Jesus Christ since October 1991.

Censorship and the Limits of the Literary - Nicole Moore Preview:

Though literature and censorship have been conceived as long-time adversaries, this collection seeks to understand the degree to which they have been dialectical terms, each producing the other, coeval and mutually constitutive. On the one hand, literary censorship has been posited as not only inescapable but definitive, even foundational to speech itself. One the other, especially after the opening of the USSR's spekstrahn, those enormous collections of literature forbidden under the Soviets, the push to redefine censorship expansively has encountered cogent criticism. Scholars describing the centralised control of East German print publication, for example, have wanted to insist on the difference of pre-publication state censorship from more mundane forms of speech regulation in democracies. Work on South African apartheid censorship and book banning in colonial countries also demonstrates censorship's formative role in the institutional structures of literature beyond the metropole. Censorship and the Limits of the Literary examines these and other developments across twelve countries, from the Enlightenment to the present day, offering case studies from the French revolution to Internet China. Is literature ever without censorship? Does censorship need the literary? In a globalizing era for culture, does censorship represent the final, failed version of national control?.

Media Accountability in the Era of Post-Truth Politics - Tobias Eberwein,Susanne Fengler,Matthias Karmasin Preview:

Bringing together both leading international scholars and emerging academic talent, Media Accountability in the Era of Post-Truth Politics maps the current state of media accountability in Europe and provides fresh perspectives for future developments in media and communication fields. As the integrity of the international media landscape is challenged by far-reaching transformations and the rise of “fake news,” the need for a functional system of media regulation is greater than ever. This book addresses the pressing need to re-evaluate and redefine the notion of accountability in the fast-changing field of journalism and “information provision.” Using comparative research and empirical data, the book’s case studies address the notion of media accountability from various perspectives, considering political and societal change, economic, organisational and technological factors, and the changing role of media audiences. By collecting and juxtaposing these studies, the book provides a new discussion for the old question of how we can safeguard free and responsible media in Europe – a question that seems more urgent than ever. Media Accountability in the Era of Post-Truth Politics is an essential read for students and researchers in journalism, media and communication studies..

Éthique à Nicomaque - Aristote Preview:

Texte intégral révisé suivi d'une biographie d'Aristote. L'"Éthique à Nicomaque", composé de dix livres, est l'un des principaux ouvrages exposant la philosophie morale d'Aristote, laquelle demeure en substance la plus significative expression de la morale grecque. Nicomaque, fils d'Aristote, lui donne son nom en tant que premier éditeur des manuscrits. Critiquant la conception platonicienne des Idées, qui préconise le "bien en soi", Aristote traite ici de ce qui doit selon lui guider l'homme dans toutes ses actions, à savoir le bonheur, sens ultime de la vie humaine. Le bonheur, dit-il, est l'exercice de cette activité propre à l'homme qu'est l'usage du "logos" (la raison, l'intelligence), mais sans toutefois exclure la jouissance des plaisirs sensibles. Sur cette base, il développe une théorie des vertus humaines qu'il divise en vertus dianoétiques, relevant de la partie intellectuelle de l'âme, et vertus éthiques, relevant plus du caractère et des sentiments. La vertu aristotélicienne, caractérisée par un juste milieu entre les passions et facultés opposées de l'âme, concilie ainsi tout à la fois des exigences spiritualistes et eudémonistes. Le philosophe considère aussi la vertu comme un fait composé de deux éléments: l'un volontaire, déterminant le but, l'autre intellectuel, donnant les moyens pour atteindre ce but. Le livre 3 est consacré à définir ce qu'il y a de volontaire et d'involontaire dans l'action de l'homme, rejetant la thèse selon laquelle "personne n'est volontairement mauvais" et concluant que la vertu comme le vice résident en notre seul pouvoir. Dans les livres 4, 5 et 6, il décrit des vertus éthiques particulières comme la douceur, la franchise, l'urbanité, la pudeur, le courage, etc., examinant particulièrement la justice et l'équité, puis étudie les vertus dianoéthiques, au nombre de cinq: la science, l'art, la prudence, l'intellect et la sagesse. Le livre 7 traite de l'intempérance et du plaisir, les livres 8 et 9 de l'amitié et de l'amour, désignés sous le même nom. Le livre 10 reprend enfin le problème du rapport entre le plaisir et la vertu, et conclut que le plaisir procède d'une perfection de l'acte, survenant "comme la beauté pour qui est dans la fleur de l'âge". Le bonheur suprême réside dans la pure contemplation de la vérité éternelle. L'"Éthique à Nicomaque" est une continuelle oscillation entre l'eudémonisme humaniste et l'intellectualisme éthique..

Portrait de l'artiste en jeune homme - James Joyce Preview:

Enfant innocent et spectateur de la société familiale étendue, et qui se sent comme « étranger », adopté dans sa propre famille, enfant victime et malheureux à Clongowes Wood, collège de jésuites où il est envoyé en pension, adolescent en proie au péché de la chair, et à la terreur de l’enfer, jeune adulte rejetant les croyances et les positions qu’en tant qu’Irlandais on voudrait lui voir embrasser, « Quand l’âme d’un homme naît dans ce pays, elle est aussitôt prise dans des filets et ne peut voler librement. Tu me parles de nationalité, de langue, de religion. Je cherche à me dégager de ces filets » et qui se réalisera dans l’exil volontaire, dans le reniement de sa patrie, « L’Irlande est une vieille truie qui dévore sa portée », c’est à cette lente sortie de la chrysalide que nous assistons à la lecture de ce roman. C’est une lecture qui suscite des questionnements en écho à ceux que le narrateur expose, à la fois sur la notion de religion, de nationalité, sur les rapports sociaux dans cette Irlande du début du XXe siècle et son histoire douloureuse. Sur le rapport du héros à la femme aussi, la mère et la femme dans toute sa symbolique. Dedalus ou Portrait de l’artiste en jeune homme (A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man), dont nous vous proposons une nouvelle traduction que l’on doit à Jean-Yves Cotté, est aussi le roman de la genèse d’un écrivain..

Oliver SACKS décrit dans ce livre les affections les plus bizarres, celles qui atteignent un homme non seulement dans son corps, mais dans sa personnalité la plus intime et dans l'image qu'il a de lui-même. Il nous fait pénétrer dans un royaume fantastique, peuplé de créatures étranges : un marin qui, ayant perdu le sens de la continuité du temps, vit prisonnier d'un instant perpétuel ; une vieille dame qui caricature dans la rue les expressions des passants, jusqu'à les rendre grotesques et terribles ; un homme qui se prend pour un chien et renifle l'odeur du monde ; deux jumeaux arriérés mentaux, capables de calculs numériques prodigieux, qui vivent dans des paysages de chiffres ; ce musicien qui, ayant perdu la capacité de reconnaître les objets, prend pur un chapeau la tête de sa femme, et bien d'autres. Tentatives aussi pour poser les jalons d'une médecine nouvelle, plus complète, qui, traitant le corps, ne refuserait pas de s'occuper de l'esprit, et même de l'âme..

The Fix - Michelle P. King Preview:

In the vein of #Girlboss and Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office, discover how to thrive at work from the head of the Global Innovation Coalition for Change at UN Women with this “passionate, practical roadmap for addressing inequality and finally making our workplaces work for women” (Arianna Huffington). For years, we’ve been telling women that in order to succeed at work, they have to change themselves first—lean in, negotiate like a man, don’t act too nice or you’ll never get the corner office. But after sixteen years working with major Fortune 500 companies as a gender equality expert, Michelle King has realized one simple truth—the tired advice of fixing women doesn’t fix anything. The truth is that workplaces are gendered; they were designed by men for men. Because of this, most organizations unconsciously carry the idea of an “ideal worker,” typically a straight, white man who doesn’t have to juggle work and family commitments. Based on King’s research and exclusive interviews with major companies and thought leaders, The Fix reveals why denying the fact that women are held back just because they are women—what she calls gender denial—is the biggest obstacle holding women back at work and outlines the hidden sexism and invisible barriers women encounter at work every day. Women who speak up are seen as pushy. Women who ask for a raise are seen as difficult. Women who spend hours networking don’t get the same career benefits as men do. Because women don’t look like the ideal worker and can’t behave like the ideal worker, they are passed over for promotions, paid less, and pushed out of the workforce, not because they aren’t good enough, but because they aren’t men. In this fascinating and empowering book, King outlines the invisible barriers that hold women back at all stages of their careers, and provides readers with a clear set of takeaways to thrive despite the sexist workplace, as they fight for change from within. Gender equality is not about women, and it is not about men—it is about making workplaces work for everyone. Together, we can fix work, not women..
