Eine ungewöhnliche Mischung aus spannungsgeladener Handlung und historischen Fakten Der junge Archäologe Ben Mercer ist Spezialist für Sparta, für den legendären Staat, der den Terror perfektioniert hat. Ben hat Frau und Kind verlassen und sich in einer griechischen Kleinstadt verkrochen. Dort trifft er eines Tages einen Kollegen aus Oxford wieder. Eine folgenschwere Begegnung: Bald arbeitet er an einer Ausgrabung mit, einem weiteren Versuch, hinter die Geheimnisse Spartas zu kommen. Ben spürt, dass seine Kollegen aber noch andere Motive haben, dass die Grabung vielleicht nur eine Tarnung für etwas ganz anderes ist. Bens Wunsch, zu dieser Gemeinschaft dazuzugehören und dieses Geheimnis zu teilen, hat einen ungeheuer hohen Preis. Tobias Hill hat mit »Verborgen« einen enorm spannungsgeladenen Roman über unser Zeitalter des Terrors geschrieben.

The Hidden Balance

Religion and the Social Theories of Charles Chauncy and Jonathan Mayhew

Congregationalist ministers Charles Chauncy and Jonathan Mayhew were among the most influential social and religious thinkers in Boston in the mid-eighteenth century. This 1987 study argues that Chauncy and Mayhew produced a complex but coherent body of ideas and that these ideas were organized closely and self-consciously around the principle of 'balance'. Writings on society and government are treated alongside theological works, rather than separate from them, and each man's corpus is placed against the background of English ideas as well as within the context of intellectual and social life in Boston. Investigation of the ideas of Chauncy and Mayhew in this way leads to the conclusion that although the two men believed that a cosmic principle of 'balance' organized social and religious life, they believed as well that full philosophical comprehension of this principle was beyond human capability. In order to express their understanding of cosmic order, Chauncy and Mayhew appropriated the metaphor of the 'great chain of being'.

IT IS NO SECRET that men are in trouble today. From war to ecological collapse, most of the world's critical problems stem from a distorted masculinity out of control. Yet our culture rewards the very dysfunctions responsible for those problems. To Matthew Fox, our crucial task is to open our minds to a deeper understanding of the healthy masculine than we receive from our media, culture, and religions. To awaken what Fox calls ''the sacred masculine,'' he unearths ten metaphors, or archetypes, to inspire men to pursue their higher calling to reinvent the world.

Killing the Hidden Waters

From the introduction to the new edition: “I’ll tell you where I went wrong. The faucet in the kitchen always becomes the reality we believe, and the periodic droughts, one of which for much of the nineties savaged the West, remain a fantasy. This happens each and every day as the water roars from the faucet and the skies remain dangerously blue.” —Charles Bowden In the quarter-century since his first book, Killing the Hidden Waters, was published in 1977, Charles Bowden has become one of the premier writers on the American environment, rousing a generation of readers to both the wonder and the tragedy of humanity’s relationship with the land. Revisiting his earliest work with a new introduction, “What I Learned Watching the Wells Go Down,” Bowden looks back at his first effort to awaken people to the costs and limits of using natural resources through a simple and obvious example—water. He drives home the point that years of droughts, rationing, and even water wars have done nothing to slake the insatiable consumption of water in the American West. Even more timely now than in 1977, Killing the Hidden Waters remains, in Edward Abbey’s words, “the best all-around summary I’ve read yet, anywhere, of how our greed-driven, ever-expanding urban-industrial empire is consuming, wasting, poisoning, and destroying not only the resource basis of its own existence, but also the vital, sustaining basis of life everywhere.”

Ending the Hidden Unfairness in U.S. Elections

Let's Use VoteFair Ranking to Restore Democracy and Stop the Excessive Influence of Campaign Contributions

Frustrated voters can now take action to reduce the big gap between what voters want and politicians do. This book explains how VoteFair ranking can eliminate a hidden unfairness in U.S. elections. The unfairness is hidden in primary elections where the winner is always from the correct party, but is often disliked by a majority of the voters. Traditional single-mark ballots don't provide information about secondary preferences, so the frequent lack of majority support for the winner of a primary election typically goes unnoticed. VoteFair ranking makes use of order-of-preference ballots that allow each voter to indicate not only a first choice, but also a second choice, third choice, and so on. VoteFair ranking counts these ballots in a way that not only correctly identifies which candidate is most popular, but also indicates which candidate is second-most popular, which candidate is third-most popular, and so on. An existing voting method called instant runoff voting also uses ballots that collect secondary preferences, but voting experts acknowledge that sometimes instant runoff voting identifies the wrong winner. The book's author, Richard Fobes, says "VoteFair ranking takes into account all the preferences of all the voters, which makes the results fairer than instant runoff voting, which only considers some of the secondary preferences of some of the voters." Ending The Hidden Unfairness In U.S. Elections contains 85 illustrations of candidates, ballots, voters, and voter preferences that clearly show the unfairness of current voting methods and the fairness of VoteFair ranking. The book also contains eight cartoons and a poem. At the front of the book are suggestions for how to read only portions of the book. The suggestions include reading the introductory chapter that summarizes the book's most important points, just reading the two chapters that explain order-of-preference ballots and VoteFair ranking, just reading the chapters that explain how U.S. Presidential elections can be improved, or just reading the closing chapter that takes a peek into the future to reveal the increased economic prosperity that will flourish under fairer voting methods. The longer you wait to tell others about this book and VoteFair ranking, the longer we must put up with special-interest puppets instead of voter-chosen leaders.

The Hidden Welfare State

Tax Expenditures and Social Policy in the United States
Author: Christopher Howard

Category: Political Science
Page: 272
View: 8270
Despite costing hundreds of billions of dollars and subsidizing everything from homeownership and child care to health insurance, tax expenditures (commonly known as tax loopholes) have received little attention from those who study American government. This oversight has contributed to an incomplete and misleading portrait of U.S. social policy. Here Christopher Howard analyzes the "hidden" welfare state created by such programs as tax deductions for home mortgage interest and employer-provided retirement pensions, the Earned Income Tax Credit, and the Targeted Jobs Tax Credit. Basing his work on the histories of these four tax expenditures, Howard highlights the distinctive characteristics of all such policies. Tax expenditures are created more routinely and quietly than traditional social programs, for instance, and over time generate unusual coalitions of support. They expand and contract without deliberate changes to individual programs. Howard helps the reader to appreciate the historic links between the hidden welfare state and U.S. tax policy, which accentuate the importance of Congress and political parties. He also focuses on the reasons why individuals, businesses, and public officials support tax expenditures. The Hidden Welfare State will appeal to anyone interested in the origins, development, and structure of the American welfare state. Students of public finance will gain new insights into the politics of taxation. And as policymakers increasingly promote tax expenditures to address social problems, the book offers some sobering lessons about how such programs work.
