TALES FROM THE MALL: Fact & Fiction from the lost age of Globalisation by Ewan Morrison (Litmus) 3.9 Stars (21 Reviews)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Tales From the Mall is a great book. It s touching and emotional and part of a new form of literary storytelling. It s worth reading, worth loving. James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces Ewan Morrison captures beautifully the point at which anecdote becomes urban myth and reportage slides into fiction. This feels like a really important step towards a literature of the 21st century. Claire Armistead, Books Editor, The Guardian Morrison continues Ballard's tradition of locating menace beneath the sleekness and shine of postindustrial life. You also learn a lot along the way. A truly interesting book. - Douglas Coupland, author of Generation X Winner of the Not The Booker Prize 2012. Finalist in the Saltire Society Book of the Year & Creative Scotland Writer of the Year 2012. From the Glenfiddich Scottish Writer of the Year 2013. Fashion. Food Courts. Lingerie. Fire Bombing. Suicide. Free Parking. Welcome to the Mall. Why would one woman threaten to kill another for a pair of discounted shoes? Why are cross-dressers drawn to mall car parks? What do impulse buys have to do with rioting? And why are market research companies hiding the truth from us? From one of the UK s most acclaimed literary and media talents, Tales From The Mall, is a mash-up of fiction, essays and true stories, that tells the rise of the most iconic symbol of our modern age the shopping mall. From over a hundred interviews and confessions, Morrison re-tells the true-life tales of those who work, shop and even find love inside their walls. With wry wit, insight and compassion, Morrison uncovers the secrets of retail heaven and hell, to reveal how malls manipulate our emotions in cleverly calculated ways, how they are an ideal space to meet a new lover or to kill yourself and how they are taking over the world. A startling window on our time, to make you think, fear and laugh. Retail will never be therapy again.

Aristotle: The Complete Works by Aristotle (Complete Works Editions) 4.7 Stars (30 Reviews)    Price verified 2 hours ago

Aristotle (384-322 BCE) was a Greek philosopher and student of Plato who stunningly changed the course of Western philosophy. He has gone down in history as one of the greatest philosophers of all time. Cicero, the Roman statesman and philosopher, once called his writing style "a river of gold;" and his scope of thought and subsequent influence on the study of science, logic, philosophical discourse, and theology has led many to dub him "The Philosopher."

Theodicy: Essays of Theodicy on the Goodness of God, the Freedom of Man and the Origin of Evil by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (e-artnow) 3.8 Stars (25 Reviews)    Price verified 44 minutes ago

"Theodicy" is a book of philosophy by the German polymath Gottfried Leibniz published in 1710, whose optimistic approach to the problem of evil is thought to have inspired Voltaire's "Candide". Much of the work consists of a response to the ideas of the French philosopher Pierre Bayle, with whom Leibniz carried on a debate for many years. The "Theodicy" tries to justify the apparent imperfections of the world by claiming that it is optimal among all possible worlds. It must be the best possible and most balanced world, because it was created by an all powerful and all knowing God, who would not choose to create an imperfect world if a better world could be known to him or possible to exist. In effect, apparent flaws that can be identified in this world must exist in every possible world, because otherwise God would have chosen to create the world that excluded those flaws. Leibniz distinguishes three forms of evil: moral, physical, and metaphysical. Moral evil is sin, physical evil is pain, and metaphysical evil is limitation. God permits moral and physical evil for the sake of greater goods, and metaphysical evil is unavoidable since any created universe must necessarily fall short of God's absolute perfection.

Revolution: Ice Age Re-Entry by Carlton Brown (Atitlan Press) 4.4 Stars (18 Reviews)    Price verified 25 minutes ago

FREE e-Book: Mitigating the Risks of a 21st Century Climate Switch to a Global Cooling Phase before Running Out of Proven Oil and Gas Reserves in the Cold and Famine-prone Decades ahead: There is an urgent need to prepare the world for a 21st-century climate switch to a cooling phase, and this current grand solar minimum is a prime time for that switch. The world will face natural climate change-related risks during the current grand solar minimum period -- risks dismissed or ignored by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) because of its constraining UNFCCC Articles 1 and 2. Solar scientists expert in climate change are warning us of a 21st-century global cooling, but the IPCC process has dismissed their science and that of other climate sub-disciplines. Climate-forcing volcanism, Arctic glacier expansion, rapid climate change, and the climate- and volcanic-related catastrophes that occurred during the Little Ice Age are risks that were also dismissed by the IPCC. The World Health Organization also ensures humans are left fully vulnerable to major pandemic influenza threats (H5N1, H7N9, etc.) during this high-risk grand solar minimum period by promoting an obsolete global vaccine strategy (no prepandemic immunization), despite the lessons of the 2009 swine flu pandemic and the current COVID19 pandemic. Earth actually entered a new Ice Age after the Holocene Climate Optimum between 8 and 10.5 millennia ago, in the Arctic and the Antarctic respectively. Since the Holocene Climate Optimum, Greenland's temperature declined by 4.9°C and the Antarctic temperature declined by 4.6°C to their lowest troughs in the early 1700s. These temperature declines represented 20% (Arctic) and 36% (Antarctic) of their interglacial temperature rise, in absolute terms. The subsequent 1700-2016 trough-to-peak temperature rise is the largest temperature increase in 8,000 years (Greenland). Glacier ice accumulation also started approximately 5,000 years ago, reaching its ...
