Janus is a lawman who enforces society's sacred law that every citizen must be Equal in every way. Physically. Mentally. Emotionally. But when Janus falls in love with a woman who broke that law he begins a transformative journey of self-discovery that makes him question the society in which he lives. Now he must choose between love and duty. Will he bring the woman to justice? Or will he join her and become a lawbreaker himself?
Ethical diplomacy is the conduct of diplomatic relations according to universally accepted standards of right and wrong. When diplomats must work for government leadership for whom truth is a seldom-regarded moral standard, and who disparage and disrespect them, is it possible for them to remain in their jobs and maintain integrity and ethical conduct? The author, a veteran of 30 years as a diplomat, and 20 years before that in the U.S. Army, looks at this thorny issue.
A Room of One's Own is an extended essay by Virginia Woolf. First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "Women and Fiction", and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy.

This open access book is the first comparative study of public, voluntary and private asylums in nineteenth-century Ireland. Examining nine institutions, it explores whether concepts of social class and status and the emergence of a strong middle class informed interactions between gender, religion, identity and insanity. It questions whether medical and lay explanations of mental illness and its causes, and patient experiences, were influenced by these concepts. The strong emphasis on land and its interconnectedness with notions of class identity and respectability in Ireland lends a particularly interesting dimension. The book interrogates the popular notion that relatives were routinely locked away to be deprived of land or inheritance, querying how often "land grabbing" Irish families really abused the asylum system for their personal economic gain. The book will be of interest to scholars of nineteenth-century Ireland and the history of psychiatry and medicine in Britain and ...

It dealt with a wide variety of subjects, including political philosophy, ethics, metaphysics, ontology, logic, biology, rhetoric and aesthetics. This two-volume edition gives a complete insight into Greek Philosophy from its beginnings until the occurrence of Christian philosophy and final extinction of pagan philosophy.
