Discover 10 vital and extraordinary life lessons from one of the most important and influential philosophers and peace activists of the 20th century - Mahatma Gandhi - in this poignant and timely exploration of the true path from anger to peace, as recounted by Gandhi's grandson, Arun Gandhi. In the current troubled climate, in our country and in the world, these lessons are needed more than ever before. "We should not be ashamed of anger. It's a very good and a very powerful thing that motivates us. But what we need to be ashamed of is the way we abuse it." (Mahatma Gandhi) Arun Gandhi was just 12 years old when his parents dropped him off at Sevagram, his grandfather's famous ashram. To Arun, the man who fought for India's independence and was the country's beloved preeminent philosopher and leader was simply a family member. He lived there for two years under his grandfather's wing until Gandhi's assassination. While each chapter contains a singular timeless lesson, The Gift of Anger also takes you along with Arun on a moving journey of self-discovery as he learns to overcome his own struggle to express his emotions and harness the power of anger to bring about good. He learns to see the world through new eyes under the tutelage of his beloved grandfather and provides a rare three-dimensional portrait of this icon for the ages. The 10 vital life lessons strike a universal chord about self-discovery, identity, dealing with anger, depression, loneliness, friendship, and family - perfect for anyone searching for a way to effect healing change in a fractured world. 1.

No one tells tales of the frontier better than Louis L'Amour, who portrays the human side of westward expansion - the good and the bad - before the days of law and order. Collected here are seven stories penned by America's favorite Western author. "The Black Rock Coffin Maker" Two men in the isolated town of Tucker want the XY ranch: Jim Walker and the ruthless Wing Cary - and one of them wants it badly enough to kill for it. It is a tale of suspense and danger, with chases, posses, shootouts, and double-crosses - all for possession of the XY ranch. "Grub Line Rider" KimSartain is an easygoing, peace-loving drifter. But when cattleman Jim Targ challenges Sartain's right to ride across an unclaimed stretch of meadow, Sartain retaliates by deciding to homestead there. Soon, more is at risk than land and pride, when Targ decides to teach Sartain a permanent - and deadly - lesson. "Desert Death Song" Nat Bodine had a choice: to die by hanging or take his chances in the desert. But when a good woman believes in a man, he finds the will to survive. "One Last Gun Notch" Morgan Clyde was driven off his small ranch by a hired gunman. He worked odd jobs but soon found himself being hired to use his gun. Now, he's working for a land hog in Red Basin who wants him to drive off a young homesteader and his wife. The scenario is too familiar, and Clyde finds that he must make a decision. "Ride, You Tonto Raiders" Matt Sabre is a young gunfighter who shoots a man who forced him to draw. To his surprise, the man on his deathbed gives him $5,000 and begs him to take the money to his wife, who is alone defending the family ranch. Guilt, regret, and wanting to do the right thing lead Matt Sabre to make that ride. "War Party" A boy on the brink of manhood, a resourceful frontier woman who has beauty as well as fortitude, and a strong male character come together in this powerful, romanti 1. Language: English.

Invincible Ignorance in American Foreign Policy
124,50 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book is a review of major post-World War II American foreign policy decisions made by authorities who were blinded by ideology. In each of the nine situations examined, accurate evidence was available and even known to many of the decision makers, but chauvinism, anti-Communism, or willful left-wing or right-wing ideological predilections carried the day. In the preface, Newman takes as his guiding light the words of Corey Robin: "The twentieth century, it's said, taught us a simple lesson about politics: of all the motivations for political action, none is as lethal as ideology. The lust for money may be distasteful, the desire for power ignoble, but neither will drive its devotees to the criminal excess of an idea on the march."The analytical-critical essays comprising this volume sweep across the post-war period, from the Hiroshima decision through Bush and Iraq. Government documents, scholarly analyses, and Newman's own acerbic arguments both entertain and inform readers.
