The acclaimed historian demonstrates a link between climate change and social unrest across the globe during the mid-17th century.Revolutions, droughts, famines, invasions, wars, regicides, government collapsesthe calamities of the mid-seventeenth century were unprecedented in both frequency and severity. The effects ofwhat historians call the General Crisis extended from England to Japan and from the Russian Empire to sub-Saharan Africa and the Americas.In this meticulously researched volume, historian Geoffrey Parker presents the firsthand testimony of men and women who experienced the many political, economic, and social crises that occurred between 1618 to the late 1680s. He also incorporates the scientific evidence of climate change during this period into the narrative, offering a strikingly new understanding of the General Crisis. Changes in weather patterns, especially longer winters and cooler and wetter summers, disrupted growing seasons and destroyed harvests. This in turn brought hunger, malnutrition, and disease; and as material conditions worsened, wars, rebellions, and revolutions rocked the world.
Jaco Diehl, a writer, lives in Hermanus. He becomes witness to an attempted murder of his neighbour, and gradually he is implicated in other violent episodes: first in Hermanus, then Somerset-West and also Bellville. His life is disintegrating, and he doesn't seem to care. Who is responsible for these murders, and what is the truth? Or perhaps the truth is also transformed into fiction, and like the main character, is not to be trusted.

________________As seen on Sky News All Out Politics There s no understanding global inequality without understanding its history. In The Divide, Jason Hickel brilliantly lays it out, layer upon layer, until you are left reeling with the outrage of it all. - Kate Raworth, author of Doughnut Economics The richest eight people control more wealth than the poorest half of the world combined. Today, 60 per cent of the world s population lives on less than $5 a day. Though global real GDP has nearly tripled since 1980, 1.1 billion more people are now living in poverty.For decades we have been told a story: that development is working, that poverty is a natural phenomenon and will be eradicated through aid by 2030. But just because it is a comforting tale doesn t make it true. Poor countries are poor because they are integrated into the global economic system on unequal terms, and aid only helps to hide this. Drawing on pioneering research and years of first-hand experience, The Divide tracks the evolution of global inequality from the expeditions of Christopher Columbus to the present day offering revelatory answers to some of humanity s greatest problems. It is a provocative, urgent and ultimately uplifting account of how the world works, and how it can change for the better.

Whilst the greatest effort has been made to ensure the quality of this text, due to the historical nature of this content, in some rare cases there may be minor issues with legibility. The condition of the Turkish Empire, a matter which formerly affected only the neighbouring States of Austria, Hungary, Poland, and Russia, has now for a century or more become an important factor in the general politics of Europe, and a source of great concern to Great Britain. Once, in 1853, it dragged us into a war to defend the Turks against Russia. Since that time it has thrice - in 1876 (at the time of the Bulgarian massacres), in 1885 (when Eastern Rumelia insisted on uniting herself to Bulgaria), and in 1895 (when nearly Armenians were massacred in Asia Minor) - become a menace to the peace of Europe. Yet, often as the attention of Englishmen has been called to the misdeeds of the Turk and the miseries of his subjects, few Englishmen understand those.
A video of Don Carveth discussing the book and its subject matter can be accessed using the following web URL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW7tGq0uEtUSince the classical Freudian and ego psychology paradigms lost their position of dominance in the late 1950s, psychoanalysis became a multi-paradigm science with those working in the different frameworks increasingly engaging only with those in the same or related intellectual "e;silos."e; Beginning with Freud's theory of human nature and civilization, Psychoanalytic Thinking: A Dialectical Critique of Contemporary Theory and Practice proceeds to review and critically evaluate a series of major post-Freudian contributions to psychoanalytic thought.In response to the defects, blind spots and biases in Freud's work, Melanie Klein, Wilfred Bion, Jacques Lacan, Erich Fromm, Donald Winnicott, Heinz Kohut, Heinrich Racker, Ernest Becker amongst others offered useful correctives and innovations that are, nevertheless, themselves in need of remediation for their own forms of one-sidedness. Through Carveth's comparative exploration, readers will acquire a sense of what is enduringly valuable in these diverse psychoanalytic contributions, as well as exposure to the dialectically deconstructive method of critique that Carveth sees as central to psychoanalytic thinking at its best. Carveth violates the taboo against speaking of the Imaginary, Symbolic and the Real unless one is a Lacanian, or the paranoid-schizoid and depressive positions unless one is a Kleinian, or id, ego, superego, ego-ideal and conscience unless one is a Freudian ego psychologist, and so on.Out of dialogue and mutual critique, psychoanalysis can over time separate the wheat from the chaff, collect the wheat, and approach an ever-evolving synthesis. Psychoanalytic Thinking: A Dialectical Critique of Contemporary Theory and Practice will be of great interest to psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists and, more broadly, to readers in philosophy, social science and critical social theory.
Diese Auswahl konzentriert sich auf die im weitesten Sinne fruhromantische Epoche der Entwicklung von 1795 bis 1805, die Schlegel im Anschlu an Kant, der seine Zeit als "e;Zeitalter der Kritik"e; charakterisierte, als Epoche der Kritischen Philosophie verstand. In Rezensionen, Kritiken, Essays, Fragmenten und Arbeitsnotizen entwirft Schlegel eine Philosophie, die radikal historisch denkt und - trotz aller Bezugnahmen auf Fichte - nicht von obersten Prinzipien ausgeht. Die "e;Historisierung des Transzendentalen"e; erfolgt durch eine "e;Totalisation von unten herauf"e; in einem hermeneutisch-kritischen Prozess, der in eine durch das Konzept der Ironie charakterisierte transzendentalphilosophische Dialektik mndet. Schlegel ist nicht nur der Begrnder der frhromantischen Hermeneutik und Kritik, sondern auch Urheber der ersten Konzeption von Dialektik in der nachkantischen Philosophie. Die von Schlegel verffentlichten Texte werden im Wortlaut des Originals abgedruckt und erstmals eingehend kommentiert. Eine ausfhrliche Einleitung der Herausgeber erschliet die Entwicklung und die Grundbegriffe der frhromantischen Philosophie Schlegels und gibt Hinweise zum Verstndnis der einzelnen Texte. Friedrich Schlegel steht als Philosoph noch immer im Schatten seiner Zeitgenossen. Dies liegt nicht nur an tradierten Vorurteilen, sondern auch an der scheinbar unsystematischen, essayistisch-aphoristischen Form der einschlgigen Texte, in denen zudem vielfach die Grenzen zwischen Poesie und Philosophie nivelliert werden.
This volume is an introductory level textbook for partial differential equations (PDE's) and suitable for a one-semester undergraduate level or two-semester graduate level course in PDE's or applied mathematics. Chapters One to Five are organized according to the equations and the basic PDE's are introduced in an easy to understand manner. They include the first-order equations and the three fundamental second-order equations, i.e. the heat, wave and Laplace equations. Through these equations we learn the types of problems, how we pose the problems, and the methods of solutions such as the separation of variables and the method of characteristics. The modeling aspects are explained as well. The methods introduced in earlier chapters are developed further in Chapters Six to Twelve. They include the Fourier series, the Fourier and the Laplace transforms, and the Green's functions. The equations in higher dimensions are also discussed in detail.This volume is application-oriented and rich in examples. Going through these examples, the reader is able to easily grasp the basics of PDE's.

';Here's Adolf Hitler in a series of bizarre photographs which he kept hidden from the world . . . They have now been published in this memoir.'Daily Express Heinrich Hoffman was a key part in the making of the Hitler legend, the photographer who carefully crafted the image of the Fuhrer as a godlike figure. Hoffmann published his first book of photographs in 1919, following his work as an official photographer for the German army. In 1920 he joined the Nazi Party, and his association with Hitler began. He became Hitler's official photographer and traveled with him extensively. He took over two million photographs of Hitler, and they were distributed widely, including on postage stamps, an enterprise that proved very profitable for both men. Hoffmann published several books on Hitler in the 1930s, including The Hitler Nobody Knows (1933). Hoffmann and Hitler were very close, and he acted not only as a personal confidantehis memoirs include rare details of the Fuhrerbut also as a matchmaker; it is Hoffmann who introduced Eva Braun, his studio assistant, to Hitler. At the end of the war, Hoffmann was arrested by the US military, who also seized his photographic archive, and was sentenced to imprisonment for Nazi profiteering. This edition of a classic book includes photographs by Hoffmann and a new introduction by Roger Moorhouse. ';An extraordinary new book of photographs of Adolf Hitler includes one that so embarrassed him he banned it from being published. It shows the Fuhrer in his lederhosen, striking an absurdly camp pose as he leans against a tree.'The Times

Am fost un om zdrobit, intors spre moarte, nu inspre viata. La 30 de ani, ma imaginam traind doar inca citiva ani, la fel de zbuciumat cum am trait mereu. Apoi, murind devreme. Cu un ochi priveam spre moarte, iar cu celalalt spre copiii mei, opintindu-ma sa mai traiesc o vreme, cit sa vad fetele suficient de mari ca sa se descurce singure. Este un miracol ca nu am murit, traind atit de sinucigas, fara macar sa-mi dau seama. Am trecut razant pe linga moarte, nu doar fiindca am fost ingropata sub o avalansa, ci fiindca am trait fiecare zi ca sa mor. Am facut intoarcerea spre viata in ziua in care am decis sa ma vindec. Nu stiam atunci, insa, ca asta fac, un U turn definitiv spre lumina. Am aflat abia acum, dupa un drum lung si dureros, cind am ajuns.Am adunat n cartea aceasta drumul meu spre sine E i lecE iile mele. Poate vor mai fi de folos cuiva, drumeE rA tA cit pe calea vindecA rii. E darul pe care l ntorc vieE ii, cA m-a ngA duit E i aE teptat sA mA ntorc cu faE a spre ea.
