Heaven On Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism (Brief Encounters)
Heaven On Earth: The Rise and Fall of Socialism (Brief
Socialism was man's most ambitious attempt to supplant religion with a doctrine claiming to ground itself in "science." Indeed, no religion ever spread so far so fast. Yet while socialism had established itself as a fact of life by the beginning of the 20th century, it did not create societies of abundance or give birth to "the New Man." Each failure inspired new searches for the path to the promised land: revolution, communes, social democracy, Communism, Fascism, Third World socialism. None worked, and some exacted staggering human tolls. Then, after two hundred years of wishful thinking and fitful governance, socialism suddenly imploded in a fin du siecle drama of falling walls and collapsing regimes. In Heaven on Earth, Joshua Muravchik traces this fiery trajectory through sketches of the thinkers and leaders who developed the theory, led it to power, and presided over its collapse. We see such dreamers and doers as the French revolutionary Gracchus Babeuf, whose "Conspiracy of Equals" were the first to try to outlaw private property; Robert Owen, who hoped to plant a model socialist utopia in the United States; Friedrich Engels, who created the cult of Karl Marx and "scientific" socialism; Benito Mussolini, self proclaimed socialist heretic and inventor of Fascism; Clement Attlee, who rejected the fanatics and set out to build socialism democratically in Britain; Julius Nyerere, who merged social democracy and communism in the hope of making Tanzania a model for the developing wor [read more]

Force Under Pressure: How Cops Live and Why They Die
Force Under Pressure: How Cops Live and Why They
In Force Under Pressure, Dr. Lawrence Blum, who has devoted his life's work to the survival and wellness of "those who serve," describes the sources of danger, injuries, and victory to police officers in a down-to-earth, readable style. Blum argues that there are missing “ingredients” in the training and socialization of police officers. These ingredients include techniques and tools to condition the officer’s decision-making and concentration during conditions of emergency; internal controls necessary to maintain the will to survive; and aids that will prevent officers being defeated by any threat. Distressing and/or disturbing physical and psychological reactions are common in a police officer's workday, and the officer must be prepared for them. Blum's work has uncovered many of the casues of compromise to officer safety and wellness, and he contends that police officers will be well prepared to cope with unanticipated or rapidly changing encounters if they possess the right tools and the know-how to command and control field encounters and life's pressures. Here Blum provides practical tools for survival in law enforcement, by combining his clinical knowledge with true stories of police officers for an attention-grabbing and informative book.

If there are 2 layers of aluminum foil sticky situation, must stop inflating, gently opened the 2 layer of aluminum foil and then inflated, or easy to damage. 2 Sharp objects / not clean the ground / sun direct and excessive extrusion, it is easy to let the balloon damage, burst. 3 Should be folded flat foil balloons to save, can not crumpled, keep dry, water can not be wiped. 4 Because the gas thermal expansion and contraction, or winter temperature reduced, should be inflated to the aluminum foil balloon; and the summer temperatures rise, should be appropriate to foil balloons deflated, so as to avoid expansion rupture. Foil balloons filled with helium or hydrogen, generally only floating 24-72 hours and the latex balloon filled with helium and hydrogen can only float 6-12 hours so helium, hydrogen must be inflated on the use of the day. 5 The balloon may have slight leakage of the individual, after all is factory mass production, with transparent glue can remedy the emergency. Why the balloon filled with helium and hydrogen only float for 12-36 hours? When the balloon filled with helium or hydrogen, because these atoms of the gas is very small, can penetrate foil balloons, so the balloon will inevitably slow leak.

Voices of Protest!: Documents of Courage and Dissent
Voices of Protest!: Documents of Courage and
This eye-opening collection of documents ranging from the pre-Christian era to the present explores the undeniable power of social, political, and religious dissent throughout history and around the world. Voices of Protest is an inspiring and comprehensive look at the meaning of protest throughout history, in democratic and nondemocratic societies. It is also a rousing confirmation that individual and community action matters and has great influence. Collected here are more than 300 documents—essays, letters, newspaper articles, court decisions, song lyrics, poetry, cartoons, and more—that represent seven main categories of protest: Civil Rights; National Self- Determination; Economic Justice; Environmental Conservation; Religious Freedom and Morality; Peace and War; and International Political Freedoms. A small sampling of the entries includes Seneca Falls Declaration of Women's Rights; Fidel Castro's anti- American writings protesting cultural domination; John Muir's essay "The American Forests"; and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s letter from a Birmingham jail. The editors have framed the documents with concise original commentary that places each selection in a political, historical, and social context.
