Book Summary: What if the South Had Won the Civil War?The landmark alternate history novel by “one of the best American writers” (Ray Bradbury). In the world of this novel, said to be an inspiration for Philip K. Dick’s The Man in the High Castle, the Confederacy has triumphed and become an imperialist nation. What is left of the United States has been drained of its resources and is trapped in a depression. Hodge, a young man living in a village in rural New York with his parents, decides to head to the city to escape his otherwise inevitable future of poverty and indentured servitude. But the specter of war between the Confederacy and the other great global power, the German Union, haunts the entire region, and a nationalist terrorist group has other plans for Hodge. Before long, he is swept up in the politics of the day and becomes involved with a beautiful physicist who is working on a machine intended to change his fate—and the fate of the world. Long before Harry Turtledove’s The Guns of the South, Bring the Jubilee was the first novel to pose the question “What if the South had won the Civil War?” A counterfactual classic, it was included in renowned science fiction editor David Pringle’s list of the 100 Best Science Fiction Novels. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Ward Moore including rare images from the author’s estate.

Book Summary: “A near-miraculous, brilliant debut.”—George Saunders, Man Booker Prize–winning author of Lincoln in the Bardo “In one exquisitely crafted story after the next, Will Mackin maps the surreal psychological terrain of soldiers in a perpetual war.”—Phil Klay, National Book Award–winning author of Redeployment WINNER OF THE PEN/ROBERT W. BINGHAM PRIZE FOR DEBUT SHORT STORY COLLECTION The eleven stories in Will Mackin’s mesmerizing debut collection draw from his many deployments with a special operations task force in Iraq and Afghanistan. They began as notes he jotted on the inside of his forearm in grease pencil and, later, as bullet points on the torn-off flap of an MRE kit. Whenever possible he incorporated those notes into his journals. Years later, he used those journals to write this book. Together, the stories in Bring Out the Dog offer a remarkable portrait of the absurdity and poetry that define life in the most elite, clandestine circles of modern warfare. It is a world of intense bonds, ancient credos, and surprising compassion—of success, failure, and their elusive definitions. Moving between settings at home and abroad, in vivid language that reflects the wonder and discontent of war, Mackin draws the reader into a series of surreal, unsettling, and deeply human episodes: In “Crossing the River No Name,” a close call suggests that miracles do exist, even if they are in brutally short supply; in “Great Circle Route Westward Through Perpetual Night,” the death of the team’s beloved dog plunges them into a different kind of grief; in “Kattekoppen,” a man struggles to reconcile his commitments as a father and his commitments as a soldier; and in “Baker’s Strong Point,” a man whose job it is to pull things together struggles with a loss of control. Told without a trace of false bravado and with a keen, Barry Hannah–like sense of the absurd, Bring Out the Dog manages to capture the tragedy and heroism, the degradation and exultation, in the smallest details of war. Praise for Bring Out the Dog “Cuts through all the shiny and hyped-up rhetoric of wartime, and aggressively and masterfully draws a picture of the brutal, frightening, and even boring moments of deployment. . . . The Things They Carried, Redeployment, and now Bring Out the Dog: war stories for your bookshelf that will last a very long time, and serve as reminders of what America was, is, and can still become.”—Chicago Review of Books

Book Summary: NEGATIVITY WILL BRING UNHAPPINESS IN YOUR LIFEBE POSITIVE THINK POSITIVE BE HAPPYABOUT THE BOOK INTRODUCTIONNegativity will bring unhappiness in your life. Be positive think positive and be happy. The feeling of negative unhappiness or sadness is within us. It is said that negative unhappiness is purely our own matter. Though it has got something to do with our external circumstances. But there are certainly some positive factors within us that keep us happy and there is something negative within us also which keep us unhappy. Happy living through positive and good thoughts, is nothing more than that of living a normal life free from undue pressures, problems and tensions.If we want to live a good and happy life then we need to get rid of the negativity within us which makes us unhappy. Negative approach always complicates the problems and increases unhappiness. Most of us do the fatal mistake of looking outwards for happiness rather than looking inwards. Be positive, be strong, be bold and be courageous you are sure to find the feeling of happiness within you. Even if we are having a bad day, think of some good things that may come our way, either later that day, tomorrow, next week, or next moment. When everything seems to be beyond our control, it's almost too easy for us to slip into the grasp of negativity and unhappiness. To avoid sadness we must strive to abolish this sort of thinking through the power of thinking positively and generate the feeling of happiness within us.The art of sweet living is not a complicated kind of art difficult to learn rather a simple art of happy living feeling well, eating well, and thinking well. What we need to do is just to tune up our mind to enjoy every moment of life and let the sweet happiness follow us. This is something that needs to be looked into thoroughly. We need to focus on the positive aspects of lives, rather than on the negative setbacks and enjoy every moment of life happily and merrily. Enjoy your life with cheerful talks. Be happy and cheerful.We must remember that happy living is the reward of sweet and positive thinking. We ought to remember, only the positive thinking can bring happiness in our lives. If we cannot think positively, you cannot live happily. Be our own teacher or adviser we ought to look everything with a positive angle. Let us find something good even in most critical moments of our life and let us make positive thinking the basis of our happy living.

Bring on the Books for Everybody

Book Summary: Bring on the Books for Everybody is an engaging assessment of the robust popular literary culture that has developed in the United States during the past two decades. Jim Collins describes how a once solitary and print-based experience has become an exuberantly social activity, enjoyed as much on the screen as on the page. Fueled by Oprah’s Book Club, Miramax film adaptations, superstore bookshops, and new technologies such as the Kindle digital reader, literary fiction has been transformed into best-selling, high-concept entertainment. Collins highlights the infrastructural and cultural changes that have given rise to a flourishing reading public at a time when the future of the book has been called into question. Book reading, he claims, has not become obsolete; it has become integrated into popular visual media. Collins explores how digital technologies and the convergence of literary, visual, and consumer cultures have changed what counts as a “literary experience” in phenomena ranging from lush film adaptations such as The English Patient and Shakespeare in Love to the customer communities at Amazon. Central to Collins’s analysis and, he argues, to contemporary literary culture, is the notion that refined taste is now easily acquired; it is just a matter of knowing where to access it and whose advice to trust. Using recent novels, he shows that the redefined literary landscape has affected not just how books are being read, but also what sort of novels are being written for these passionate readers. Collins connects literary bestsellers from The Jane Austen Book Club and Literacy and Longing in L.A. to Saturday and The Line of Beauty, highlighting their depictions of fictional worlds filled with avid readers and their equations of reading with cultivated consumer taste.

Aspiration for health - How can a focus on gender bring change in Southern Sudan

Book Summary: Essay from the year 2003 in the subject Health Science, grade: A (1,0), University of London (Institute of Education), course: Basisgesundheitswesen in Entwicklungslaendern, 36 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: [...] Concurrently, the profound gender inequity of the world’s resource distribution, a key determinant of health, contiues: “Women are half the world’s population, yet they do two-thirds of the world’s work, earn one-tenth of the world’s income, and own less than one-hundredth of the world’s property (UN, 1985:337)” This is true particularly in low- income countries, where the majority of girls and women are deprived of adequate health care, education and decision-making power, leading to illiteracy, malnutrition, abuse, chronic illness and premature death (The World Bank, 1994; UN, 2000). Current news headlines echo this problem: African women are 175 times more likely to die in childbirth and pregnancy than Westerners are (BBC news, 20 October 2003). Sudan, a country marked by extreme poverty due to chronic civil war, compounded by natural disasters, also reflects these gender inequities. The few statistics available show a lower primary education enrolment ratio for girls (41.9); a high maternal mortality ratio of 1500 (per 100 000 live births) and only 10% of parliament seats are taken up by women (UN, 2003). 6 The denial of women’s equity and health rights has profound consequences upon the health, development and survival of children. Research across the developing world indicates that, after maternal death, more than 95% of infants died within one year, with a girl child having an even less chance of survival than a boy (The World Bank 1994; Winikoff, 1988). Clearly, girls and women need to be the focus of all PHC initiatives if public health is to be enhanced. Focussing upon women in order to improve health is not a recent notion, but has been promoted since the UN sponsored Women’s Decade in 1976-85 (Moser, 1993). Thus, the question arises why only minor success appear to be noticeable, and how this conceptual framework can be applied into the context of a complex emergency like in Sudan. Therefore, this essay will firstly outline the evolution of a gender approach towards health and development, elucidating its underlying principles, objectives and achievements. It will briefly explicate the socio-economic and cultural context of a Dinka community in Southern Sudan through a ‘gender lens’ and critically reflect upon PHC programmes, with reference to the author’s personal work experience.

What Children Bring To Light

Book Summary: Bonnie Shapiro clarifies the historical development of constructivism, and employs a constructivist approach in her own methodology. To construct new ideas means to take action based on beliefs about what one is doing when one is learning science. Learning is understood not only as a cognitive experience, but also as one that derives from the emotional, personal, social, cultural, and preconceptual. These often neglected dimensions, which permeate all subject matter learning, are given high status in What Children Bring to Light. Six case studies, each emphasizing a very different reception of one teacher’s inroduction of the topic, light, form the core of the book. Shapiro not only analyzes this core in the book’s third part, but shares the thinking that lies behind the research and data collection. “Not only is this book valuable reading for the practitioner, but it is also a model of how curriclum learning theory research can be communicated in an interesting yet scholarly way.” —The Science Teacher
