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 42 minutes 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 16 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...

History of Woman Suffrage Vol 2 by Elizabeth Cady Stanton (GIANLUCA) Price verified 2 hours ago

"In presenting to our readers, the second volume of the "History of Woman Suffrage," we gladly return our thanks to the press for the many favorable notices we have received from leading journals, both in the old world and the new. The words of cordial approval from a large circle of friends, and especially from women well known in periodical literature, have been to us a constant stimulus during the toilsome months we have spent in gathering material for these pages. It was our purpose to have condensed the records of the last twenty years in a second volume, but so many new questions in regard to Citizenship, State rights, and National power, indirectly bearing on the political rights of women, grew out of the civil war, that the arguments and decisions in Congress and the Supreme Courts have combined to swell these pages beyond our most liberal calculations, with much valuable material that cannot be condensed nor ignored, making a third volume inevitable".

History of Woman Suffrage, Volume III by Matilda Joslyn Gage (GIANLUCA) 3.8 Stars (5 Reviews)    Price verified one hour 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.

History of Woman Suffrage - Volume I by Elizabeth Cady Stanton (GIANLUCA) 4.1 Stars (17 Reviews)    Price verified 20 hours ago

"The prolonged slavery of woman is the darkest page in human history. A survey of the condition of the race through those barbarous periods, when physical force governed the world, when the motto, "might makes right," was the law, enables one to account, for the origin of woman's subjection to man without referring the fact to the general inferiority of the sex, or Nature's law. Writers on this question differ as to the cause of the universal degradation of woman in all periods and nations. One of the greatest minds of the century has thrown a ray of light on this gloomy picture by tracing the origin of woman's slavery to the same principle of selfishness and love of power in man that has thus far dominated all weaker nations and classes. This brings hope of final emancipation, for as all nations and classes are gradually, one after another, asserting and maintaining their independence, the path is clear for woman to follow. The slavish instinct of an oppressed class has led her to toil patiently through the ages, giving all and asking little, cheerfully sharing with man all perils and privations by land and sea, that husband and sons might attain honor and success. Justice and freedom for herself is her latest and highest demand... "
