The Fourth Book of Occult Philosophy, by Henry Cornelius Agrippa and unnamed others, is considered one of the cornerstones of Western magic, and the grimoires it contains are among the most important that exist in the Western tradition. For more than three hundred years, this mysterious tome has been regarded as difficult or even impossible to understand—until now. Occult scholar Donald Tyson presents a fully annotated, corrected, and modernized edition of Stephen Skinner's 1978 facsimile edition of the original work, which was six tracts published as one volume in 1655. For the first time, these classic works of Western magic have been rendered fully accessible to the novice practitioner, as well as occult scholars and skilled magicians. Tyson presents clear instruction and practical insight on a variety of magic techniques, providing contemporary magicians with a working grimoire of the arcane. - Astrology - History - Geomancy - Ceremonial Magic - The Nature of Spirits, Angels, and Demons - Geomantic Astronomy - Necromancy - Invocation and Evocation of Spirits

The American presidency is the most powerful political office in the world. But this impressive statement serves only to raise a whole series of fundamental questions: What is the scope of presidential powers and what are its limits? Can the president use all the authority of his office or is that authority more formal than effective? Does the presidency have sufficient power to meet today's needs or do the problems of the modern age demand a more powerful executive? Is there a danger of dictatorship in the growth of political authority or will the presidency remain an office of constitutional democratic leadership?This book explores such questions by presenting a wide range of views on presidential power from a variety of sources: original supporters and opponents of the office; presidents themselves; Supreme Court decisions; and professional students of the presidency.

Das Buchereignis 2018: Bill Clinton und James Pattersons »The President Is Missing« ist ein hochspannender Thriller über Ereignisse, die wirklich so eintreffen können – eine Geschichte am Puls der Zeit, die man sich auf keinen Fall entgehen lassen darf. »The President Is Missing« handelt von einer Bedrohung so gigantischen Ausmaßes, dass sie nicht nur das Weiße Haus und die Wall Street in Aufruhr versetzt, sondern ganz Amerika. Angst und Ungewissheit halten die Nation in ihrem Würgegriff. Gerüchte brodeln – über Cyberterror und Spionage und einen Verräter im Kabinett. Sogar der Präsident selbst gerät unter Verdacht und ist plötzlich von der Bildfläche verschwunden. In der packenden Schilderung dreier atemberaubend dramatischer Tage wirft »The President Is Missing« ein Schlaglicht auf die komplizierten Mechanismen, die für das reibungslose Funktionieren einer hoch entwickelten Industrienation wie Amerika sorgen, und ihre Störanfälligkeit. Gespickt mit Informationen, über die nur ein ehemaliger Oberbefehlshaber verfügt, ist dies wohl der authentischste, beklemmendste Roman jüngerer Zeit, eine Geschichte – von historischer Tragweite und zum richtigen Moment erzählt –, die noch jahrelang für Zündstoff sorgen wird.

Postmodern Politics for a Planet in Crisis

Policy, Process, and Presidential Vision
Author: David Ray Griffin,Richard A. Falk
Publisher: SUNY Press
ISBN: 1438404921
Category: Philosophy
Page: 232
View: 9527
This book argues that the planetary crisis, which has been produced by modernity, demands a postmodern politics, especially in the United States, the chief embodiment and exporter of modernity. What is needed is an America that promotes a new world order that is genuinely new—one based on a concern for the human race as a whole, and on a sustainable relationship between the human species and the rest of the biosphere. John B. Cobb, Jr., Richard Falk, David Ray Griffin, Wes Jackson, Frank Kelly, Frances Moore Lappé, Joanna Macy, Douglas Sloan, Jim Wallis, and Roger Wilkins write about various dimensions of this postmodern politics, including its educational aims, morality, time-consciousness, and ecological sensibility, its agricultural and other environmental policies, its truly democratic process, and a postmodern presidency. This book provides the most complete prescription yet for the kind of presidential leadership we need and the kind of transformation in the body politic necessary to evoke and complement such leadership.

Just Because the President Is Black

Publisher: Trafford Publishing
ISBN: 1426964498
Category: Political Science
Page: 176
View: 9569
The sole purpose of writing this book is to shake Americans out of their stupor and into the greatness they keep swearing this country is all about. Americans are 100% responsible for where we are now and where we will be in the future. The power is in our hands but not as long as we allow ourselves to stay divided. President Obama is not the sole reason for our division but because of racism, he is a major factor. This is a book explaining the manipulation of the public. The American public keeps allowing the wealthy minority to divide them making them co-conspirators in their own demise. The election of this black President makes Americans easy pickings. Hopefully, at the end of this book, America will finally be motivated to recognize and get past their subconscious racism, which makes us especially vulnerable to any type of divisive manipulation. Hopefully, we can stop dividing and unify for our own good.

Thinking Like a Planet

The Land Ethic and the Earth Ethic
Author: J. Baird Callicott
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 0199324905
Category: Philosophy
Page: 400
View: 8692
Bringing together ecology, evolutionary moral psychology, and environmental ethics, J. Baird Callicott counters the narrative of blame and despair that prevails in contemporary discussions of climate ethics and offers a fresh, more optimistic approach. Whereas other environmental ethicists limit themselves to what Callicott calls Rational Individualism in discussing the problem of climate change only to conclude that, essentially, there is little hope that anything will be done in the face of its "perfect moral storm" (in Stephen Gardiner's words), Callicott refuses to accept this view. Instead, he encourages us to look to the Earth itself, and consider the crisis on grander spatial and temporal scales, as we have failed to in the past. Callicott supports this theory by exploring and enhancing Aldo Leopold's faint sketch of an Earth ethic in "Some Fundamentals of Conservation in the Southwest," a seldom-studied text from the early days of environmental ethics that was written in 1923 but not published until 1979 after the environmental movement gathered strength.

The Professor and the President

Daniel Patrick Moynihan in the Nixon White House
Author: Stephen Hess
Publisher: Brookings Institution Press

What happens when a conservative president makes a liberal professor from the Ivy League his top urban affairs adviser? The president is Richard Nixon, the professor is Harvard's Daniel Patrick Moynihan. Of all the odd couples in American public life, they are probably the oddest. Add another Ivy League professor to the White House staff when Nixon appoints Columbia's Arthur Burns, a conservative economist, as domestic policy adviser. The year is 1969, and what follows behind closed doors is a passionate debate of conflicting ideologies and personalities. Who won? How? Why? Now nearly a half-century later, Stephen Hess, who was Nixon's biographer and Moynihan's deputy, recounts this fascinating story as if from his office in the West Wing. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (1927–2003) described in the Almanac of American Politics as "the nation's best thinker among politicians since Lincoln and its best politician among thinkers since Jefferson", served in the administrations of four presidents, was ambassador to India, and U.S. representative to the United Nations, and was four times elected to the U.S. Senate from New York. Praise for the works of Stephen Hess Organzing the Presidency Any president would benefit from reading Mr. Hess's analysis and any reader will enjoy the elegance with which it is written and the author's wide knowledge and good sense. -The Economist The Presidential Campaign Hess brings not only first-rate credentials, but a cool, dispassionate perspective, an incisive analytical approach, and a willingness to stick his neck out in making judgments. -American Political Science Review From the Newswork Series It is not much in vogue to speak of things like the public trust, but thankfully Stephen Hess is old fashioned. He reminds us in this valuable and provocative book that journalism is a public trust, providing the basic information on which citizens in a democracy vote, or tune out. — Ken Auletta, The New Yorker

Bob Woodward, die Ikone des investigativen Journalismus in den USA, hat alle amerikanischen Präsidenten aus nächster Nähe beobachtet. Nun nimmt er sich den derzeitigen Präsidenten vor und enthüllt den erschütternden Zustand des Weißen Hauses unter Donald Trump. Woodward beschreibt, wie dieser Präsident Entscheidungen trifft, er berichtet von eskalierenden Debatten im Oval Office und in der Air Force One, dem volatilen Charakter Trumps und dessen Obsessionen und Komplexen. Woodwards Buch ist ein Dokument der Zeitgeschichte: Hunderte Stunden von Interviews mit direkt Beteiligten, Gesprächsprotokolle, Tagebücher, Notizen – auch von Trump selbst – bieten einen dramatischen Einblick in die Machtzentrale der westlichen Welt, in der vor allem eines herrscht: Furcht. Woodward ist das Porträt eines amtierenden amerikanischen Präsidenten gelungen, das es in dieser Genauigkeit noch nicht gegeben hat.
