You And What Army? How to Neutralize Conflict and Negotiate Justice For the Totally Outgunned, Inwardly Timid, Burnt Out or Socially Defunct by Lisa Bracken (New Flight Books newflightbooks.com) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 2 hours ago

From newflightbooks.com: In a world fraught with conflict - sometimes hostile conflict - where access to justice can be politically, even physically barred, negotiation can be a powerfully viable avenue toward resolution. Negotiation, however, implies a compromising process of 'give and take' from those who are relatively equitably situated. For those in gravely unbalanced situations and facing enormous odds, rebalancing the field demands a greatly enhanced degree of insight, planning and persistence... evolving adversaries and conditions while simultaneously securing vital interests. With the capacity to be summoned toward a long-range campaign, negotiation, as a tool of equity and transformation, can fulfill an extraordinarily targeted and disciplined role in illuminating truth; paving access toward justice; and, facilitating sound social evolution, all the while serving short-term needs. Developed in such a way, negotiation demands broad situational analysis; the design and implementation of effective strategies; vigorous community organizing; the building of sustainable coalitions; navigating and leveraging bureaucracies; neutralizing misinformation; launching a relevant education and media campaign; and, leveraging common principals of law. For the figuratively outgunned, inwardly timid, burnt out or socially defunct, this type of coordinated approach may appear beneficial, but nonetheless overwhelming. Offering detailed and scalable field solutions as well as worksheets amounting to an evolved strategic playbook, "You And What Army?" is a practical, easy-to-use, 870 page field guide loaded with powerful, straight-forward applications and techniques useful in structuring an effective, comprehensive and far-reaching negotiation campaign. Long recognized internationally by scholars, advocates, and business leaders, "You And What Army?" is a necessary reference for negotiators, analysts, strategists, advocacy organizations, academics, attorneys, diplomats ...

The Romance of the Forest by Ann Radcliffe (E-BOOKARAMA) 3.6 Stars (37 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

"The Romance of the Forest", first published in 1791, is a gothic classic, a style popularised by writers like Ann Radcliffe. They were often set in castles or great houses, involved a mystery, supernatural elements, a 'damsel in distress' and typically an overpowering male figure. They were very popular during the Romantic period of British literature. Rich in allusions to aesthetic theory and to travel literature, "The Romance of the Forest" is also concerned with current philosophical debate and examines systems of thought central to the intellectual life of late eighteenth-century Europe. Set in a Roman Catholic Europe of violent passions and extreme oppression, the novel follows the fate of its heroine Adeline, who is mysteriously placed under the protection of a family fleeing Paris for debt. They take refuge in a ruined abbey in south-eastern France, where sinister relics of the past - a skeleton, a manuscript, and a rusty dagger - are discovered in concealed rooms. Adeline finds herself at the mercy of the abbey's proprietor, a libidinous Marquis whose attentions finally force her to contemplate escape to distant regions...

ON EVOLUTION BY COMPETITION. THE LAW OF LIFE, KNOWLEDGE AND THE UNIVERSE. by Ray Harvey Price verified 14 hours ago

FORWARD EVOLUTIONARY TRUTH NEEDS TO PREVAIL FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE. This thought-provoking book contends competition is the fundamental of Evolution. Originating from our cosmos, where force yields to greater force causing domination. That we evolved from that system of competitive energy. Ray Harvey contends, that not only did humans need to win physical fights in the war of nature, but those more ably evolved with abilities to keep the team together, had more chance of keeping the team alive. Harvey contends, 'good' and all it embodies, evolved out over millions of years, because it improves co-operation, enhancing the chances of survival. That 'good' is still a force today, because it gives those understanding human groups, more chance of having an elevated platform of well-being. Harvey argues this well-being is not a class, culture, religious or colour privilege, but a matter of truth and honesty. Based on the simplest Evolutionary principle. That is, 'treat each other how you would like to be treated', because one can expect it to be reciprocated. However, Harvey contends, most societies are still based on stifling, conflicting and the divisive nature of antiquated religious texts. Based on unthinking dogma and belief, a contradiction to the efficiency and proficiency developed by the honesty of Evolution. The author asserts the idea that we have most of humanity, based on belief without facts, permeates important decision making in other areas of life. Causing truth and facts to be lost in the ether of beliefs, engendering our leaders to play fiddle, while people suffer and our earth burns. Harvey maintains, there needs to be a more conscious separation of the church from the state, so that decisions for sustainability and peace can be based on the truthful reality of facts and modern worldly reasoning. From this basis of truth, as Evolutionists, we can then out reason the destructive side of domination. Harvey explains, the prevalent confusion of ...

History of Woman Suffrage, Volume III by Matilda Joslyn Gage (GIANLUCA) 3.8 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

The labors of those who have edited these volumes are not only finished as far as this work extends, but if three-score years and ten be the usual limit of human life, all our earthly endeavors must end in the near future. After faithfully collecting material for several years, and making the best selections our judgment has dictated, we are painfully conscious of many imperfections the critical reader will perceive. But since stereotype plates will not reflect our growing sense of perfection, the lavish praise of friends as to the merits of these pages will have its antidote in the defects we ourselves discover. We may however without egotism express the belief that this volume will prove specially interesting in having a large number of contributors from England, France, Canada and the United States, giving personal experiences and the progress of legislation in their respective localities.
