Crony Capitalism in America: 2008-2012
Language: English | PDF | ISBN-10: 0988726726 | 2013 | 399 pages | 2 MB
When private interests need a political favor, they know whom to call. When politicians need money, they also know whom to call. The people involved try to keep most of it concealed behind closed doors.

Crony Capitalism in America: 2008-2012
We see it everywhere:
* shady zoning regulations in a small town;
* taxpayer money diverted into political campaigns;
* deals that enrich the few at the expense of the many;
* billion-dollar bailouts;
* trillions of newly printed dollars flowing from government to Wall Street at giveaway interest rates;
* brand-name economists hired to defend the indefensible with a smokescreen of economic theory.

When private interests need a political favor, they know whom to call. When politicians need money, they also know whom to call. The people involved try to keep most of it concealed behind closed doors.

This is the system that prevails in Russia after the fall of Communism. But increasingly it is America's system as well.

Many people regard Wall Street as the epicenter of American capitalism. In reality it is the epicenter of American crony capitalism. Where Wall Street stops and Washington begins is impossible to say. This situation was not caused, as many suppose, by the Crash of 2008. Rather the Crash was caused by the longstanding Wall Street-Washington partnership. But the problem extends far beyond Wall Street to every corner of America.

If we are going to do anything about our present economic problems, and also give the poor a chance at a better life, we will need to eliminate crony capitalism.

Although full of hair-raising stories, this book is also about solutions. It tells us in clear and simple terms what is wrong and what needs to be done about it.

Chelsea House Publications | English | 2006-07-30 | ISBN: 079108650X | 132 pages | PDF | 2,4 MB

China Contested: Western Powers in East Asia
Riding the wave of one of the most accelerated economic expansions in history, China is on the brink of emerging as a global juggernaut. One of the chief reasons for its success has been its ability to unite itself, expel the physical presence of Western powers from its soil, and reoccupy Hong Kong and Macao. "" examines the country's artificial divisions over time, tracing interference by the West back to the early 16th century. This intrusion peaked during the establishment of Western spheres of influence in the late 19th century, yet it continues to resonate today with the standoff over Taiwan. Author Matthew J. Flynn points out that while China has endured many divisions throughout its past, the borders imposed by the West were strictly political and had no geographic or historical basis. "China Contested" will help students grasp the concept that China's determination to be recognized as a great power coincided with its resolve to eliminate the arbitrary borders created by the West.

The Dark Side of Modernity

FREEDownload : The Dark Side of Modernity

The Dark Side of Modernity by Jeffrey C. Alexander
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0745648215 , 0745648223 | 200 pages | PDF | 0,7 MB
In this book, one of the world's leading social theorists presents a critical, alarmed, but also nuanced understanding of the post-traditional world we inhabit today. Jeffrey Alexander writes about modernity as historical time and social condition, but also as ideology and utopia.

The Dark Side of Modernity
The idea of modernity embodies the Enlightenment's noble hopes for progress and rationality, but its reality brings great suffering and exposes the destructive impulses that continue to motivate humankind.

Alexander examines how twentieth-century theorists struggled to comprehend the Janus-faced character of modernity, which looks backward and forward at the same time. Weber linked the triumph of worldly asceticism to liberating autonomy but also ruthless domination, describing flights from rationalization as systemic and dangerous. Simmel pointed to the otherness haunting modernity, even as he normalized the stranger. Eisenstadt celebrated Axial Age transcendence, but acknowledged its increasing capacity for barbarity. Parsons heralded American community, but ignored modernity's fragmentations.

Rather than seeking to resolve modernity's contradictions, Alexander argues that social theory should accept its Janus-faced character. It is a dangerous delusion to think that modernity can eliminate evil. Civil inclusion and anti-civil exclusion are intertwined. Alexander enumerates dangerous frictions endemic to modernity, but he also suggests new lines of social amelioration and emotional repair.

Anger Management in Sport: Understanding and Controlling Violence in Athletes

FREEDownload : Anger Management in Sport: Understanding and Controlling Violence in Athletes

Anger Management in Sport: Understanding and Controlling Violence in Athletes by Mitch Abrams
English | 2010 | ISBN: 0736061681 | 296 pages | PDF | 5,5 MB
Anger management is becoming an increasingly significant area of study in sport. This issue affects all people involved in the sporting environment, yet few sport professionals, coaches, or administrators fully understand anger in sport and how to work with athletes to overcome the problem.

Anger Management in Sport: Understanding and Controlling Violence in Athletes
Anger Management in Sport: Understanding and Controlling Violence in Athletes addresses this important topic and provides strategies and interventions for overcoming excessive anger and aggression in athletes. The provocative book challenges long-held assumptions and points the way to further research and discussion.

With its accessible format and proactive approach, Anger Management in Sport is an ideal resource for practitioners at all levels of sport who work with athletes and anger, both on and off the field. The author draws on his unique background and clinical experiences creating and implementing anger management skills for a variety of populations-from high school athletes to prison inmates. His unique insight will stimulate discussion on a range of issues associated with anger in sport, including mental illness, drugs, and differences and similarities in amateur and professional athletes. Readers will understand not only how to approach an anger problem but also how to help an athlete work to manage emotions.

Rather than eliminate old explanations, the book paves the way to a new understanding of issues vital to the health of sport. Chapters 1 and 2 help readers better understand anger and violence and how to assess anger in sport. Anger, aggression, violence, and hostility are defined so that readers will understand the conceptual differences between each. Chapter 3 discusses the athletic culture and how anger is uniquely considered in sports. Readers will recognize some instances of anger in sport through the discussion of such high-profile events as the Baylor University basketball scandal, the O.J. Simpson trial, and the infamous 2004 Pacers-Pistons NBA melee in Detroit involving crowd aggression. Chapters 5 and 6 examine mental illness and drugs in sport. Chapters 7 through 9 tackle anger management programs, systematic interventions for athletes, and prevention of sexual violence.

Real-world situations presented in the text will engage readers and help them picture how to use anger management skills in their own lives and careers. By considering the various stakeholders involved and the preventive measures that can be taken, researchers and professionals will step closer to discovering best practices and strategies for anger management in today's sport society.

Although helping athletes deal with anger is an important part of sport, there is little research to address the key issues regarding this difficult subject. Anger Management in Sport will help readers understand the causes for anger in sport and how to help athletes who demonstrate aggressive behavior. It will shed light on an uncharted issue and provide direction for future research in the area.
