Addiction and Responsibility

FREEDownload : Addiction and Responsibility

Jeffrey Poland, George Graham, "Addiction and Responsibility"
English | 2011 | ISBN-10: 0262015501 | 320 pages | PDF | 18 MB

Addiction and Responsibility
Addictive behavior threatens not just the addict's happiness and health but also the welfare and well-being of others. It represents a loss of self-control and a variety of other cognitive impairments and behavioral deficits. An addict may say, "I couldn't help myself." But questions arise: are we responsible for our addictions? And what responsibilities do others have to help us? This volume offers a range of perspectives on addiction and responsibility and how the two are bound together. Distinguished contributors — from theorists to clinicians, from neuroscientists and psychologists to philosophers and legal scholars — discuss these questions in essays using a variety of conceptual and investigative tools.

Some contributors offer models of addiction-related phenomena, including theories of incentive sensitization, ego-depletion, and pathological affect; others address such traditional philosophical questions as free will and agency, mind-body, and other minds. Two essays, written by scholars who were themselves addicts, attempt to integrate first-person phenomenological accounts with the third-person perspective of the sciences. Contributors distinguish among moral responsibility, legal responsibility, and the ethical responsibility of clinicians and researchers. Taken together, the essays offer a forceful argument that we cannot fully understand addiction if we do not also understand responsibility.

When Parties Fail: Emerging Alternative Organizations

FREEDownload : When Parties Fail: Emerging Alternative Organizations

Kay Lawson and Peter H. Merkl, "When Parties Fail: Emerging Alternative Organizations"
English | ISBN: 069160553X, 0691077584 | 2014 | 606 pages | PDF | 32 MB

When Parties Fail: Emerging Alternative Organizations
Throughout history parties have faltered and new groups have emerged, but rarely has this process been so accelerated, so widespread, and so conducive to dramatic political change as in our present era. When Parties Fail explores alternative organizations in depth and comparatively. Among the organizations discussed are environmentalist groups, such as the West German and Swedish Greens, the Italian Radicals, and local protest groups in Japan, Switzerland, and the United States. Also considered are new groups seeking attention in unresponsive party systems, such as the Danish Gilstrup party, the British SDP, and American PACs; community parties and movements in Israel, India, Britain, and the American South; and antiauthoritarian movements in Poland (Solidarity), Taiwan, and Ghana. The case of France provides an example of major party survival. Three broadly comparative chapters consider the reasons for major party persistence in some nations and the causes and impact of their decline in others.

The contributors to the book are David Apter, Myron J. Aronoff, Liang-shing Fan, Frank B. Feigert, Zvi Gitelman, Ronald J. Herring, Jon Kraus, Kay Lawson, Tom Mackie, Peter H. Merkl, Raffaela Y. Nanetti, Angelo Panebianco, Mogens N. Pedersen, Geoffrey Pridham, Peter Pulzer, Richard Rose, Donald Schoonmaker, Frank Sorauf, Robert C. A. Sorensen, Evert Vedung, Hanes Walton, Jr., and Frank L. Wilson.

Originally published in 1988.

Popular Opinion in Totalitarian Regimes: Fascism, Nazism, Communism

FREEDownload : Popular Opinion in Totalitarian Regimes: Fascism, Nazism, Communism

Paul Corner, "Popular Opinion in Totalitarian Regimes: Fascism, Nazism, Communism"
2009 | ISBN-10: 0199566526 | 248 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Popular Opinion in Totalitarian Regimes: Fascism, Nazism, Communism
Fascism, Nazism, and Communism dominated the history of much of the twentieth century, yet comparatively little attention has focused on popular reactions to the regimes that sprang from these ideologies. Popular Opinion in Totalitarian Regimes is the first volume to investigate popular reactions to totalitarian rule in the Soviet Union, Fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, and the communist regimes in Poland and East Germany after 1945.

The contributions, written for this volume by internationally acknowledged experts in their fields, move beyond the rather static vision provided by traditional themes of consent and coercion to construct a more nuanced picture of everyday life in the various regimes. The book provides many new insights into the ways totalitarian regimes functioned and the reasons for their decline, encouraging comparisons between the different regimes and stimulating re-evaluation of long-established positions.

Schindler’s Ark
In the shadow of Auschwitz, a flamboyant German industrialist grew into a living legend to the Jews of Cracow. He was a womaniser, a heavy drinker and a bon viveur, but to them he became a saviour. This is the extraordinary story of Oskar Schindler, who risked his life to protect Jews in Nazi-occupied Poland and who was transformed by the war into a man with a mission, a compassionate angel of mercy.

Reaching Athens: Community, Democracy and Other Mythologies in Adaptations of Greek Tragedy

FREEDownload : Reaching Athens: Community, Democracy and Other Mythologies in Adaptations of Greek Tragedy

Reaching Athens: Community, Democracy and Other Mythologies in Adaptations of Greek Tragedy (New Comparative Criticism) by Margherita Laera
2013 | ISBN: 3034308078 | English | 319 pages | PDF | 17 MB

Reaching Athens: Community, Democracy and Other Mythologies in Adaptations of Greek Tragedy
Why do revivals and adaptations of Greek tragedy still abound in European national theatres, fringe stages and international festivals in the twenty-first century? Taking as its starting point the concepts of myth developed by Jean-Luc Nancy and Roland Barthes and the notion of the classical' outlined by Salvatore Settis, this book analyses discourses around community, democracy, origin and Western identity in stage adaptations of Greek tragedy on contemporary European stages. The author addresses the ways in which the theatre produces and perpetuates the myth of classical' Greece as the origin of Europe and how this narrative raises issues concerning the possibility of a transnational European community. Each chapter explores a pivotal problem in modern appropriations of Greek tragedy, including the performance of the chorus, the concept of the obscene' and the audience as the demos of democracy. Modern versions of Women of Troy, Hippolytus and Persians performed in Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Poland and Greece are analysed through a series of comparative case studies. By engaging with the work of prominent theatre-makers such as Mark Ravenhill, Michel Vinaver, Katie Mitchell, Sarah Kane, Krzysztof Warlikowski, Romeo Castellucci, Calixto Bieito and Rimini Protokoll, this volume offers a critique of contemporary democratic Europe and the way it represents itself onstage.

Nazi Palestine: The Plans for the Extermination of the Jews in Palestine

FREEDownload : Nazi Palestine: The Plans for the Extermination of the Jews in Palestine

Klaus-Michael Mallmann, Martin Cuppers, "Nazi Palestine: The Plans for the Extermination of the Jews in Palestine"
2010 | ISBN-10: 1929631936 | 272 pages | PDF | 4 MB

Nazi Palestine: The Plans for the Extermination of the Jews in Palestine
"It is to the credit of the two authors of this book . . . that they have been assiduous in locating information either inaccessible or overlooked earlier."-Gerhard L. Weinberg

The planned extermination of the Jews living in Palestine was only weeks away . . .

In 1941-42 Nazi Germany appeared to be invincible in North Africa, and many Arab nationalists looked to a leader, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin el-Husseini, for guidance.

The Mufti had several meetings with Adolf Hitler. Nazi Germany also pledged to wipe out the Jews who had been living in Palestine since time immemorial as well as the new arrivals from the beginning of the Zionist movement in the nineteenth century and following the Balfour Declaration in 1917.

A special unit was assembled and trained in Greece in the spring of 1942 by SD officer Walter Rauff, the originator of the gassing van experiments in Poland and the Soviet Union. They were to operate behind the lines with the help of those in the region who were eager to join the task force. After El Alamein, the Einsatzkommando shifted its operations to Tunisia, where it implemented cruel anti-Jewish policies for many months.

Over 2,500 Tunisian Jews were to die in the camps set up by the Nazis and their collaborators.

The authors have identified the relevant documents and analyzed the racist, ideological, political, and religious implications of the planning of a specific regional extermination program within the context of the Holocaust.

Great Battles Volume II: Warld War II in Europe

FREEDownload : Great Battles Volume II: Warld War II in Europe

Great Battles Volume II: Warld War II in Europe by Joe Giorello
English | December 5, 2014 | ASIN: B00QO25XFU | 185 Pages | EPUB/MOBI/AZW3/PDF (Converted) | 17 MB
This is the second book in the Great Battles Series that takes young readers directly to history's most significant fights.

Great Battles Volume II: Warld War II in Europe
Rather than dry lists of dates and events, Great Battles puts young readers "in the fight," showing them which weapons, strategies, and military leaders determined victory, or defeat. After reading the specific details about war–from boots and bayonets to bullets and bombs–readers will suddenly see history with fresh eyes and a renewed curiosity. And, without realizing it, they also learn vast amounts of geography and world history.

Great Battles Volume II opens with Hitler's rise to power in 1930s Germany. Readers then plunge into the invasion of Poland and how that fury unleashed World War II. Proceeding in chronological order through the most crucial battles of Europe and North Africa, the book covers many of the most significant battles, including the battles of Britain, Salerno, Stalingrad and the Normandy invasion. Yet the book also reveals some barely-known but important battles, such as the Winter War in Finland, when a tiny country forced a truce against the powerful might of Stalin's Soviet Union.

Each chapter also offers historic photographs and maps, an age-appropriate reading list, Internet resources such as hearing Winston Churchill's famous speeches, and movies that the whole family can watch.

Even the most reluctant readers will be captivated by learning history through weapons, warfare and strategy. Not only will they better understand history, they will realize exactly how war and its battles have shaped our world.

The perfect primer for creating a love of history, Great Battles stokes the fires of curiosity and understanding. It also underscores the truth that "Freedom isn't free."

“In Volume II of Great Battles, author Joe Giorello paints a vivid picture of events in WW II’s Pacific Theater in a way that will make readers forget they aren’t listening to first-hand accounts of the action! Combining his uniquely conversational style with myriad historical facts, plenty of interesting photos, and lots of fascinating, little known anecdotes, Joe takes readers “behind the scenes” and helps them to experience this vitally important chapter in our Nation’s history. From the dark days following Pearl Harbor to victory ratified aboard the USS Missouri, Giorello covers it all – and never fails to capture the incredible sacrifice, unbelievable courage, and selfless service of America’s bravest and finest. A great book with superb additional resources; I give it a “must read!”
