In Mr. Pritchett´s view, rules, regulations and blitzes have brought things to such a pass that the moment will come when only the reader ‘and the hundred best authors are left in the world and have somehow to shake down together.’ To prepare for this ‘unnerving situation’ he has re-read and re-assessed some of these authors, and the essays collected in this book are the fruit of his cogitations. Gibbon, Mrs. Gaskell, Dostoevsky, Fielding, Kilvert, Twain, Synge, Swift, Browning, are some of the writers Mr. Pritchett discusses. Names and dates are diverse, but nearly all have one common characteristic: they demonstrate the axiom that past and present are often parallel in most unexpected ways. Swift anticipated modern science and its consequences nearly two hundred years ago. Thackeray drew a modern Mayfair playboy when he created Rawdon Crawley. Huckleberry Finn is blood relation to Charlie Chaplin. These essays should appeal to scholars and the unlearned alike. Those who have neglected their classics will make discoveries which they can follow up with the aid of the appendix. The well-read cannot fail to be stimulated by the learning, vitality and originality which make up the texture of Mr. Pritchett´s mind. Victor Sawdon Pritchett (1900-1997) was born over a toyshop in 1900 and, much to his everlasting distaste, was named after Queen Victoria. A writer and critic, his is widely reputed to be one of the best short story writers of all time, with the rare ability to capture the extraordinary strangeness of everyday life. He died in 1997. 1.

The great explorers were the celebrities of their day - the romance and danger of their daring expeditions captured the public imagination and the world´s headlines to an extraordinary degree. Not all of them lived to tell the tale, of course, but those who emerged triumphant from jungle, desert, or polar wasteland were hailed as if returning from beyond the grave. Journalists vied for their stories and publishers rushed their firsthand accounts of exciting and dangerous journeys into print for a wide and voracious readership. Acclaimed travel historian John Keay introduces this selection of the best of these firsthand narratives, including those of John Ross and John Franklin, writing about their experiences in the Arctic; Richard Burton´s account of his search for the source of the Nile; John Speke on Lake Victoria; David Livingstone and Henry Stanley´s adventures in central Africa; Alexander McKenzie´s first crossing of America and Meriwether Lewis´s encounter with the Shoshonee; Robert Peary and Roald Amundsen´s voyages to the poles; and the poignant last words of William Wills in Australia and Robert Scott´s In Extremis. Keay includes the experiences of four remarkable 20th-century explorers: Hiram Bingham on the discovery of Machu Picchu; Wilfred Thesiger on Arabia´s Empty Quarter; Edmund Hillary on reaching the summit of Everest; and Harry St John Bridger Philby facing despair and defeat in the Arabian desert. 1.

Online news articles, television news channels, and your local newspaper have probably mentioned ISIS at least once throughout the group´s existence. ISIS is viewed as a terrorist organization by some countries, but to others it is seen as people´s only hope for having their religion protected from foreign and domestic influences. Before you go siding with ISIS or become an antagonist, understand how ISIS was created and their purpose for existing.

Al Qaeda is the most dangerous terrorist movement in history. Yet most people in the Americas and Europe know very little about it, or their view is clouded by misperceptions and half truths. If the first rule of war is to ´´know your enemy´´, then we have a long way to go. This important book fills this gap with a comprehensive analysis of al Qaeda - the origins, leadership, ideology, and strategy of the terrorist network that brought down the Twin Towers and continues to threaten us today.Bruce Riedel is an expert on the Middle East and South Asia, with 30 years of intelligence and policymaking experience. He was actually in the White House Situation Room during the 9/11 attacks, serving as special assistant to the president and National Security Council senior director for Near East Affairs. He draws on this insider experience in profiling the four most important figures in the al Qaeda movement: Osama bin Laden, its creator and charismatic leader; ideologue Ayman Zawahiri, its Egyptian coleader and principal spokesman; Abu Musaib al Zarqawi, leader of al Qaeda in Iraq until his death in 2006; and Mullah Omar, its Taliban host. These profiles provide the base from which Riedel delivers a much clearer understanding of al Qaeda and what must be done to counter it.The Search for al Qaeda reviews how al Qaeda was created and developed, presenting authoritative and chilling background on ´´The Manhattan Raid´´, but Riedel focuses more closely on what has happened to it since that awful day. He outlines al Qaeda´s ultimate goals, which are to drive America out of the Muslim world, to destroy Israel, and to create a jihadist caliphate larger than the Ottoman Empire at its height. The book concludes with a strategy for dealing with - and defeating - this most dangerous menace. The book is published by Brookings Institution Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Colacci.

This groundbreaking book explodes several myths: that selling sex is completely different from any other kind of work; that migrants who sell sex are passive victims; and that the multitude of people out to save them are without self-interest. Laura Agustín argues that the label ´trafficked´ does not accurately describe migrants´ lives and that the ´rescue industry´ disempowers them. Based on extensive research amongst migrants who sell sex and social helpers, Sex at the Margins provides a radically different analysis. Frequently, says Agustín, migrants make rational choices to travel and work in the sex industry. Although they are treated like a marginalised group they form part of the dynamic global economy. Both powerful and controversial, this book is essential listening for all those who want to understand the increasingly important relationship between sex markets, migration and the desire for social justice. 1.
