Broken Lunch: The Best of Times - A Funny Memoir by Simon Dewhurst 3.9 Stars (21 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

An intimate and fast moving memoir, sometimes laugh-out-loud, recalling Simon Dewhurst's privileged and eccentric upbringing in an upper-class English family after the last war. He has no time for misery and self-flagellation. Instead, the narrative glides seamlessly and predictably from one disaster to the next. His exploits as a soldier, ski teacher, film extra, actor and a cinema projectionist among other jobs, take us from London during the Swinging Sixties to Scandinavia, North America and finally to darkest Africa. The ingredients for the best memoirs are many - his are blue, entertaining, and possibly worrying. This is a very funny memoir and Dewhurst writes easily with an incisive wit. He has no truck with political correctness. His style is light and airy with little moralizing about the meaning of life, but he is still capable of a good rant when writing about the state of the modern world.

Hell's Highway by G. Daniel Cole (Createspace) 3.8 Stars (26 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Having been blessed with a rich, full life, I must with all due humility confess that very little moves me anymore. I've seen and experienced the self-sacrifice and beauty that only the deepest of loves can bestow. I have been poisoned and hardened by man's inhumanity to man. Having said that, imagine my soul-stirring surprise when my friend Danny Cole sent me, almost apologetically, the first chapter of what became this book, seeking my opinion. The thing was, you see, Danny Cole had never before written anything in the way of books, short stories, poetry, etc. But he had something he needed to express and about halfway through his twenty-second year of sobriety he felt the time had come to express it. Not that he isn't a creative artist. Anyone who has ever seen the photographs of his loving tribute to his daughter Gloria, named Gloria Gardens, that he designed and constructed stone by stone in his back yard couldn't help but realize that.

"Walden" is a book written by Henry David Thoreau. The work is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and manual for self-reliance. First published in 1854, it details Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland near Concord, Massachusetts.

Civil Disobedience (Resistance to Civil Government) is an essay that was first published in 1849. In it, Thoreau argues that individuals should not permit governments to overrule or atrophy their consciences, and that they have a duty to avoid allowing such acquiescence to enable the government to make them the agents of injustice. Thoreau was motivated in part by his disgust with slavery and the Mexican-American War. Slavery in Massachusetts" is an 1854 essay based on a speech he ...

Understanding Willing Participants, Volume 2: Milgram’s Obedience Experiments and the Holocaust by Nestar Russell (Palgrave Macmillan) 4.9 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 6 minutes ago

Horrified by the Holocaust, social psychologist Stanley Milgram wondered if he could recreate the Holocaust in the laboratory setting. Unabated for more than half a century, his (in)famous results have continued to intrigue scholars. Based on unpublished archival data from Milgram's personal collection, volume one of this two-volume set introduces readers to a behind the scenes account showing how during Milgram's unpublished pilot studies he step-by-step invented his official experimental procedure -- how he gradually learnt to transform most ordinary people into willing inflictors of harm. The open access volume two then illustrates how certain innovators within the Nazi regime used the very same Milgram-like learning techniques that with increasing effectiveness gradually enabled them to also transform most ordinary people into increasingly capable executioners of other men, women, and children. Volume two effectively attempts to capture how step-by-step these Nazi innovators ...

Les Misérables by Victor Hugo (Pandora's Box Classics) 4.4 Stars (933 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

It has been said that Victor Hugo has a street named after him in virtually every town in France. A major reason for the singular celebrity of this most popular and versatile of the great French writers is Les Misérables (1862). In this story of the trials of the peasant Jean Valjean -- a man unjustly imprisoned, baffled by destiny, and hounded by his nemesis, the magnificently realized, ambiguously malevolent police detective Javert -- Hugo achieves the sort of rare imaginative resonance that allows a work of art to transcend its genre. Les Misérables is at once a tense thriller that contains one of the most compelling chase scenes in all literature, an epic portrayal of the nineteenth-century French citizenry, and a vital drama -- highly particularized and poetic in its rendition but universal in its implications -- of the redemption of one human being. One of the half-dozen greatest novels of the world. -- Upton Sinclair The greatest of all novels. -- Leo Tolstoy Hugo is ...
