Anthony Eden, who served as both Foreign Secretary and Prime Minister, was one of the central political figures of the twentieth century. He had good looks, charm, a Military Cross from the Great War, an Oxford first and a secure parliamentary constituency from his mid-twenties. He was Foreign Secretary at the age of 38, and the first British statesman to meet Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. Eden's dramatic resignation from Neville Chamberlain's Cabinet in 1938, outlined here in the fullest detail yet, made an international impact. This ground-breaking book examines his controversial life and tells the inside story of the Munich crisis (1938), the Geneva Conference (1954), Eden's battles with Churchill over the modernisation of the post-war Conservative Party and his rivalry with Butler and Macmillan in the early 1950s, culminating in a fascinating analysis of the Suez crisis.

"Joanna Picciotto's Labors of Innocence in Early Modern England is a splendid study of the origins, devlopment, and eventual decline of the Experimentalist tradition in seventeenth-and early eighteenth-century English letters. In tracing out the arc of this intellectual and professional trajectory, Picciotto engages productively with the crucial religious, socio-economic, philosophical, and literary movements associated with the ongoing labors of the `innocent eye'".---Eileen Reeves, Princetion University --

Globalization creates growth without jobs in the North, structural adjustment in the South, privatization in the East and the dismantling of states everywhere. It is a process which unifies through market integration and new information technologies, yet separates through growing social polarization. It is also a process which depends on the feminization of employment; rather than liberating women into the workplace, globalisation has bred a new underclass of low paid or unpaid women workers. Demonstrating exactly how women, all over the world, have become the call-girls of the global labour market, the author of this extraordinary book uses a mixture of case studies, examples and quotations to illustrate some hard facts. She looks at women across the world - to show how their lives have been turned upside down by industrialization in the South and a return to homeworking in the North. We meet Martha, 17-year old mother of two in Harlem, who cannot afford medical provision on the salary she has been forced to accept; Margaret, former secretary at the Ministry of Agriculture in Nairobi, now trading in second-hand clothes; Li Thi, a Vietnamese woman who is paid $500 a year for stitching the same running shoes that a top US basketball player is paid $20 million a year to promote. From New York to Phnom Penh, from Moscow to Dakar, we see the devastating effects of the unfettered power of transnational corporations on women’s lives. This book charts that devastation and calls for urgent action - by states across the world and by women themselves.

Entry number two in Sarah A. Hoyts rollicking and popular Darkship series, sequel to Darkship Thieves, and winner of the Prometheus Award. After rescuing her star pilot husband and discovering the dark secret of her own past on Earth, Athena Hera Sinistra returns to space habitat Eden to start life anew. Not happening. No good deed goes unpunished, and Thena and Kit are placed under arrest for the crime of coming back alive. The only escape from a death sentence: return to Earth and bring back the lost method for creating the Powertrees, the energy source of both Eden and Earth whose technological origins have been lost to war. But that mission is secondary to a greater imperative. Above all else, Thena must not get caught. If she does, then suicide is to be the only option. With the odds heavily stacked against not only success, but survival, Thena comes to understand what her cynical accusers do not: it is not merely one womans life on the line anymore. For its on Earth where the adventure truly begins. Thena realizes that what is truly at stake is the fate of Eden and Earth alike, the continuance of the darkship fleet_and freedom for all in the Solar system_and beyond.

Juni 1969: Die zähen Jahre am College sind vorbei. Mark Vonnegut, Sohn des berühmten Schriftstellers Kurt Vonnegut, zieht es in die Wildnis. Mit seiner Freundin Virginia und ein paar College-Freunden will er der Welt, in der er lebt und an der er (ver)zweifelt, entfliehen. Mit einem VW Käfer geht es ans Ende der Zivilisation, in eine entlegene Region Kanadas. Eindringlich und humorvoll erzählt Vonnegut vom harten und entbehrungsreichen Leben in der Kommune auf einer kleinen Insel ohne Elektrizität, 18 Kilometer per Boot von der nächsten Straße entfernt. Die Freunde beschäftigen sich hauptsächlich mit sich selbst. Doch irgendwann fängt Mark an, Stimmen zu hören. Die Hippie-Utopie gerät mehr und mehr zum Alptraum – einem Horrortrip, der am Valentinstag 1971 in der Gummizelle einer psychiatrischen Klinik endet. Nach intensiver Behandlung und vielen Rückschlägen wird Vonnegut schließlich geheilt und beginnt ein neues Leben – in die Kommune kehrt er nie wieder zurück. Das Buch gilt längst als Klassiker. Nun erscheint es, mit einem Vorwort von Kurt Vonnegut versehen, zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch.

Samadhi. It's a mysterious word. But what is behind it? Is it only a fairytale or can you actually experience it? This book unveils the ancient art of how yogis and mystics had the keys to an unlimited reservoir of wisdom and power. It brings the timeless and forgotten wisdom of Samadhi into modern-day practicality. What you will find in the book: Rare Samadhi wisdom not found anywhere else. Instructions on how to access the full potential of consciousness to directly explore and experience Samadhi with anything you wish (physical or nonphysical objects, states, lifeforms or even Consciousness itself). How to bring the energy and insight of Samadhi into your body and mind, and integrate them into your life and spiritual journey. Real and direct first-hand knowledge--not from reading books or hearing stories. Disclosing the "active path" of Yogic Samyama and the "passive path" of Letting Go into Shunya Samadhi. The revelation of the arcane 8th Chakra and how to employ its capabilities through a powerful yogic practice. The truth about Mahasamadhi, the "final Samadhi." And much more. Samadhi will change your life forever. Do not neglect its power. It will transform the way you perceive and experience the world because you'll see what very few have seen: an unfathomed beauty, interconnectedness, and unity between all things in life. Are you ready to embark on an unforgettable spiritual journey? True life begins with Samadhi--that's how you'll open the gates to the real Garden of Eden and taste the fruit of ancient and forgotten spiritual wisdom.
