The Diary of a Nobody (Wordsworth Classics)

The Diary of a Nobody is so unassuming a work that even its author, George Grossmith, seemed unaware that he had produced a masterpiece. For more than a century this wonderfully comic portrayal of suburban life and values has remained in print, a source of delight to generations of readers, and a major literary influence, much imitated but never equalled. If you don't recognise yourself at some point in The Diary you are probably less than human. If you can read it without laughing aloud you have no sense of humour.A hilarious and classic read that will have you imagining the plot in person.This paperback book measures: 19.8 x 12.9 x 1.3cm.

KILLER FAMILIES: TRUE CRIME: MURDER BY DADS, MOMS, KIDS & SPOUSES (MURDER IN THE FAMILY Book 1)

KILLER FAMILIES

MURDER IN THE FAMILY

The family home is supposed to be a place where family members find a safe haven from the stress of outside life. A place where they feel protected and loved. Yet for many this is simply not the case.

The true stories in this short book demonstrate that the family environment can be a very dangerous place indeed. Not just for children suffering from child abuse, but also for mothers, fathers, wives and husbands. In the United States, one of the most treacherous places for a woman is in her own home. Women may be afraid of strangers, but it's a husband, a lover, a boyfriend, or someone they know who is most likely to hurt them and they are at the highest risk of suffering violence or murder when they are divorcing or separating from a partner. Men too can suffer abuse from their wife or partner but the difference in physical size and strength puts a woman at greater risk than a man.

For children, the greatest danger is not an unknown stranger, but their immediate families.

Is your family safe?

A Room of One’s Own (Wisehouse Classics Edition)

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," which was published in Forum March 1929, 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 figurative space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by men.

President Barack Obama: The Kindle Singles Interview (Kindle Single)

In this Kindle Singles Interview, President Barack Obama decried the "change in culture" that has changed our view of the American Dream. "There was not that window into the lifestyles of the rich and famous," the President said. "Kids weren't monitoring everyday what Kim Kardashian was wearing, or where Kanye West was going on vacation, and thinking that somehow that was the mark of success." He addressed the jobs issue from a personal perspective, reflecting on how his own life might have been different had he not experienced success in politics. "I could picture myself being a good teacher," the President mused.



In the interview, which took place on July 30, 2013, at an Amazon facility in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Obama discussed the increasing need for government programs that can actually make a difference. Sticking close to his standard message, he spoke frankly about the increasing polarization of American politics since the Great Recession and Republican Party intransigence over his agenda. On a personal note, he reflected that he and First Lady Michelle Obama are constantly reminding their daughters of the "slightly unreal environment that they're in," as children of privilege in a world constrained by unemployment and recession.



The interview was conducted by David Blum. Blum works for Amazon as the editor of Kindle Singles. He began his career as a staff reporter for The Wall Street Journal, and has been the editor-in-chief of The Village Voice, the New York Press and 02138 Magazine. He was previously a writer and editor at The New York Times Magazine, and a contributing editor at New York and Esquire magazines. He has written two books: "Flash in the Pan: The Life and Death of an American Restaurant" (1992), and "Tick...Tick...Tick...: The Long Life & Turbulent Times of 60 Minutes" (2004). He received his B.A. degree in English literature at the University of Chicago.

The Republic

Written in the form of a Socratic dialogue, The Republic is an investigation into the nature of an ideal society. In this far-reaching and profoundly influential treatise, Plato explores the concept of justice, the connection between politics and psychology, the difference between words and what they represent, and the roles of art and education, among many other topics. A towering achievement of philosophical insight, The Republic is as relevant to readers today as it was to the citizens of ancient Athens.

Chess: Top Beginners Tactics You Must Know !

Dominate Chess Tactics, Chess Strategies, Openings & Closings and Start Playing Like a Pro !

This book will guide you through the basics of chess, from its origins to the rules of the modern game.

By the end of the book, not only will you have an understanding of the rules of chess, but you will also be able to understand the top beginners strategies which if practiced will allow you to challenge some of the best players in the world.

Chess is one of the world's most popular board games, and is played by millions of people from all walks of life in parks, homes, online and tournaments. This two-player game is played on a checkered board with 64 squares arranged in an eight by eight grid called a chessboard. The game begins with each player possessing 16 pieces, 8 pawns, two rooks (sometimes called castles), two bishops, two knights, a queen and a king.

The different player's pieces are colored differently and are usually either black or white, though colors may vary. Regardless of the color variation though, each 'team' is referred to as either black or white. The objective of the game is to 'checkmate' the opponent's king by placing it in such a position that it cannot escape capture.

There are other methods to winning the game, such as when an opponent forfeits or resigns from the match. Forfeitures are normally as a result of the opponent losing too many pieces, or if a checkmate is seen as inevitable. There are also circumstances where the game ends in a draw for various reasons, meaning that neither player wins.

The first official world chess championship was held in 1886 between Wilhelm Steinitz and Johannes Zukerfort. The victor and thus the first official World Champion was Wilhelm Seinitz. Since the creation of the World Chess Federation in Paris in 1924, the best chess players in the world have been awarded the title of Grandmaster, which is the highest accolade a chess player can get apart from world champion.

The latter half of the 20th century saw computers being programmed to play chess, with many home computers now being able to play with such a high level of sophistication that they can outwit some of the best human players. The first computer to ever beat a reigning world champion was the computer Deep Blue, which beat Garry Kasparov in a match in 1997.

Self-Mastery: Actualize Your Potential and Enjoy a Fulfilling Life

In the prior book, Say Goodbye to Low Self-Confidence and Failure, author PN Murray

revealed the hidden dangers of lacking high self-esteem and fortitude.

In this latest book, Self-Mastery: Actualize Your Potential and Enjoy a Fulfilling Life, she

shows you how to command the confidence that one needs to bring about a more rewarding

lifestyle.

Self-Mastery teaches you all of the steps and strategies needed, in order to conquer all types of negative emotions and setbacks, including:

? Defining what self-mastery is, and what it isn't;

? How to attain self-mastery;

? What it takes to build your dream life with self-mastery;

? Revealing the precise core emotions that arise from self-mastery;

...and much more.

Once you've bid adieu to low confidence and consistent failures, you can then welcome

self-mastery into your life, and watch it prosper.

Empathy

Our society functions by separating us from each other: almost as soon as we're born, we are taught to divide people into groups and see some as more deserving (and more human) than others. Everything from massive inequality to war depends on this process of categorisation and dehumanisation.

In this provocative, inspiring piece of writing, Raoul Martinez asks how and why our empathy is controlled, and argues for a very different world - one of deeper understanding and indiscriminate compassion.

THE TÂO TEH KING (TAO TE CHING - Wisehouse Classics Edition)

The TAO TEH KING, Tao Te Ching, Daodejing, Dao De Jing, or Daode jing (simplified Chinese: ???; traditional Chinese: ???; pinyin: Daodejing), also simply referred to as the Laozi (Chinese: ??; pinyin: Laozi), is a Chinese classic text. According to tradition, it was written around 6th century BC by the sage Laozi (or Lao Tzu, Chinese: ??; pinyin: Laozi, literally meaning "Old Master"), a record-keeper at the Zhou dynasty court, by whose name the text is known in China. The text's true authorship and date of composition or compilation are still debated, although the oldest excavated text dates back to the late 4th century BC.

The Awakening (Wisehouse Pocket Classics - Original Authoritative Edition 1899)

The Awakening, originally titled A Solitary Soul, is a novel by Kate Chopin, first published in 1899. Set in New Orleans and on the Louisiana Gulf coast at the end of the 19th century, the plot centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle to reconcile her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women's issues without condescension. It is also widely seen as a landmark work of early feminism, generating a mixed reaction from contemporary readers and critics.

The novel's blend of realistic narrative, incisive social commentary, and psycho?logical complexity makes The Awakening a precursor of American modernist literature; it prefigures the works of American novelists such as William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway and echoes the works of contemporaries such as Edith Wharton and Henry James. It can also be considered among the first Southern works in a tradition that would culminate with the modern master?pieces of Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, and Tennessee Williams.

Paradise Lost

The Five Step Exit: Skills You Need to Leave a Narcissist, Psychopath, or Other Toxic Partner and Recover Your Happiness Now

Are you suffering in a painful relationship, uncertain whether to stay or go? Do you feel confused, trapped, exhausted or distressed in a partnership with someone who is on-and-off, up-and-down, inconsistent, cruel, unkind, crazy-making, volatile, or completely self-serving? Are you considering ending the relationship but feeling uncertain if that's the best thing for you ---and them---- or feeling worried about how to exit safely and as gracefully as possible? Do you fear that you'll never be able to recover if you leave, or that they won't? In The Five Step Exit, clinical sociologist Amber Ault, Ph.D., MSW offers clear, practical, and straight-forward strategies for exiting toxic relationships and moving into robust recovery, ease, and happiness. Written in a warm and accessible style, The Five Step Exit offers partners in toxic relationships a unique and practical resource: a rational, compassionate five-stage process for planning and executing an exit, responding skillfully to the dramatic challenges that you may face when you do, and recovering your happiness, health, and joy as you put a difficult relationship behind you. Dr. Ault's Five Step Exit recognizes the commonalities among the crazy-making behavior patterns psychologists identify as narcissistic, anti-social, and borderline personality disorders, as well as the subtle differences between them. Designed for significant others and spouses of people across these categories, including partners in heterosexual, same-sex, and queer marriages and dating relationships, the Five Step Exit will speak to you if you are suffering in a heart-breaking, crazy-making relationship. Organized into five sections that give you strategic guidance, explicit steps, and heart-centered practices, The Five Step Exit offers comfort, encouragement, and wisdom to anyone preparing to make the liberating move of leaving a toxic relationship in the interest of living their best life possible. You deserve to be free of relationship s

Our Mutual Friend (Everyman's Library Classics)

In his last completed novel, published in 1864-5, Dicens confirmed his reputation as a story-teller of genius while extending the sphere of his imagination to new worlds. Like all Dickens' novels, OUR MUTUAL FRIEND weaves together many stories, uniting them in the bizarre symbolism of the wealth which derives from a rubbish tip. With all the energy of his earlier novels, this one has an extra resonance and depth of shade.

Putin's Russia: How It Rose, How It Is Maintained, and How It Might End

In this groundbreaking collection, nine of Russia's leading scholars and experts describe and analyze some of the Vladimir Putin regime's key structural strengths and weaknesses and look at their implications for both the present and the future. As far as the regime's fault lines are concerned, the evidence presented by the authors shows no reversal, or even narrowing, of these structural dysfunctions in Putin's third presidential term.

Topics covered here include Russia's political economy, political geography, and politics of federalism; the regime, ideology, public opinion, and legitimacy; and potential defeat and radicalization of civil society. Emerging in these pages is a finely textured portrait of a society rife in complexities, contradictions, and postponed but looming crises.

A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (Wisehouse Classics - Original 1792 Edition)

A VINDICATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMAN: WITH STRICTURES ON POLITICAL AND MORAL SUBJECTS (1792), written by the 18th-century British feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, is one of the earliest works of feminist philosophy. In it, Wollstonecraft responds to those educational and political theorists of the 18th century who did not believe women should have an education. She argues that women ought to have an education commensurate with their position in society, claiming that women are essential to the nation because they educate its children and because they could be "companions" to their husbands, rather than mere wives. Instead of viewing women as ornaments to society or property to be traded in marriage, Wollstonecraft maintains that they are human beings deserving of the same fundamental rights as men.

Wollstonecraft was prompted to write the Rights of Woman after reading Charles Maurice de Talleyrand-Perigord's 1791 report to the French National Assembly, which stated that women should only receive a domestic education; she used her commentary on this specific event to launch a broad attack against sexual double standards and to indict men for encouraging women to indulge in excessive emotion. Wollstonecraft wrote the Rights of Woman hurriedly to respond directly to ongoing events; she intended to write a more thoughtful second volume but died before completing it.

While Wollstonecraft does call for equality between the sexes in particular areas of life, such as morality, she does not explicitly state that men and women are equal. Her ambiguous statements regarding the equality of the sexes have since made it difficult to classify Wollstonecraft as a modern feminist, particularly since the word and the concept were unavailable to her. Although it is commonly assumed now that the Rights of Woman was unfavourably received, this is a modern misconception based on the belief that Wollstonecraft was as reviled during her lifetime as she became after the publication of William Godwin's Memoirs of the Author of A VINDICATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMAN (1798). The Rights of Woman was actually well received when it was first published in 1792. One biographer has called it "perhaps the most original book of [Wollstonecraft's] century".

Women's rights and the family in a changing global world

Womens rights and the family in a changing world

by Hearts and Minds Media

Women's rights are the rights and entitlements claimed for women and girls worldwide, and formed the basis for the women's rights movement in the nineteenth century and feminist movement during the 20th century. In some countries, these rights are institutionalized or supported by law, local custom, and behavior, whereas in others they are ignored and suppressed. They differ from broader notions of human rights through claims of an inherent historical and traditional bias against the exercise of rights by women and girls, in favor of men and boys.

Issues commonly associated with notions of women's rights include, though are not limited to, the right: to bodily integrity and autonomy; to be free from sexual violence; to vote; to hold public office; to enter into legal contracts; to have equal rights in family law; to work; to fair wages or equal pay; to have reproductive rights; to own property; to education

Quantum Gravity: Reasoning with New Physics

The reproducibility of facts is the hallmark of a natural science, the impossibility of counting up to infinity that of a measuring process, and the "law of great numbers" that of statistics. A statement like "Nothing will come from nothing, and nothing gets lost" will yield conservation laws. Bell's own interpretation of his no-go theorems, then, will directly give Quantum Gravity, and its iteration the unification of all types of forces of nature ("New Physics").

The present paper will outline the reasoning of Quantum Gravity and of New Physics rather than their technical details - as far as all that allows for separating those issues from each other.

Thermodynamic principles are imposing 2 alternative channels to us: A closed system will yield the reaction channel conserving probabilty, and an open system the dynamic channel. Causality will mark the open channel, entanglement the reaction channel. Parities are the key to understanding a black hole free of singularities.

Space, time, and mass can be counted from the non-valence parts of a particle as occurrence rates of special double-quant properties; Higgs is dispensable. The spectrum of stable particles derives from the representation of our static multiverse. Its building universes give us the illusion of motion (like by a flip book).

Lagrange's formalism and its canonical quantization prove as classical dead locks of obsolete centuries. The multitude of positive results - like the fine-structure constant calculated correctly, e.g. - speak in favour of New Physics, the total absence of "broken" quantum numbers in favour of a deeper "understanding" of nature.

The Coming War In Europe: Essays On Europe's Impending Destabilization And Internal Confrontation With Islam

The Coming War In Europe: Essays On Europe's Impending Destabilization And Internal Confrontation With Islam is a collection of articles and essays published by Julian Langness from 2015-2017.

These essays detail and analyze the situation in Europe vis a vis:

Mass-Muslim immigration and the 'migrant crisis' The philosophy of progressive-elite driven cultural-suicide that is behind the tragic developments in EuropeThe startlingly quick pace of Islamization overtaking countries like the UK, Sweden, France, and Germany.What the future in Europe foretellsWho is fighting back and howWhat can further be done by those who wish to save Western Europe and her peoplesThe collection contains articles originally published by Counter-Currents, TraditionalRight, Western Spring, and the author's own website, Europeancivilwar.com.

This book will serve as an interesting and thought-provoking read to those already aware of Europe's dangerous course, and a deep-seated intellectual and moral challenge to those still advocating for the EU's multiculturalist vision.

The author, Julian Langness, traveled extensively in Europe as a teen and early twenty-something, and these journeys catalyzed his shift to Identitarianism and Traditionalism. Since 2015 he has written for a variety of New Right websites. He has also given speeches at the Northwest Forum and American Renaissance, and has been interviewed by Henrik Palmgren of Red Ice Radio, Piero San Giorgio, and others. He is also the author of Fistfights With Muslims In Europe: One Man's Journey Through Modernity.

The Writings of Thomas Paine: Collected and Edited by Moncure Daniel Conway: Volume 2

WHEN Thomas Paine sailed from America for France, in April, 1787, he was perhaps as happy a man as any in the world. His most intimate friend, Jefferson, was Minister at Paris, and his friend Lafayette was the idol of France. His fame had preceded him, and he at once became, in Paris, the centre of the same circle of savants and philosophers that had surrounded Franklin. His main reason for proceeding at once to Paris was that he might submit to the Academy of Sciences his invention of an iron bridge, and with its favorable verdict he came to England, in September. He at once went to his aged mother at Thetford, leaving with a publisher (Ridgway), his " Prospects on the Rubicon." He next made arrangements to patent his bridge, and to construct at Rotherham the large model of it exhibited on Paddington Green, London. He was welcomed in England by leading statesmen, such as Lansdowne and Fox, and above all by Edmund Burke, who for some time had him as a guest at Beaconsfield, and drove him about in various parts of the country. He had not the slightest revolutionary purpose, either as regarded England or France. Towards Louis XVI. he felt only gratitude for the services he had rendered America, and towards George III. he felt no animosity whatever. His four months' sojourn in Paris had convinced him that there was approaching a reform of that country after the American model, except that the Crown would be preserved, a compromise he approved, provided the throne should not be hereditary. Events in France travelled more swiftly than he had anticipated, and Paine was summoned by Lafayette, Condorcet, and others, as an adviser in the formation of a new constitution.

British Muslim Soldier

It isn't nice but you're an animal, so you can do it, dressed in green and brown and black waiting to be attacked and smiling because you had bullets for teeth.

Adnan Sarwar, a Pakistani boy from Burnley, joined the British Army - the White Man's Army. Why did he do it? To prove he was as white as his friends? For Queen and Country? Or to work out who he was - British, Muslim or a Soldier? Perhaps he could be all three.

'British Muslim Soldier' is Adnan's journey through the battlegrounds of war, race and identity, facing up to the often brutal realities of these fraught warzones. There is racism, family ties, tedious routine, enemies and torture. But what Adnan's story really comes down to is love - love for his family, for his fellow squaddies - and a deep-rooted sense of identity and belonging.

...when did these clothes fit so well? When did Corporal become an older brother and when did the army become a mother? When did I become a British soldier?

Women and Politics

A Room of One's Own

The title of the essay comes from Woolf's conception that, "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction". Woolf notes that women have been kept from writing because of their relative poverty, and financial freedom will bring women the freedom to write; "In the first place, to have a room of her own... was out of the question, unless her parents were exceptionally rich or very noble". The title also refers to any author's need for poetic licence and the personal liberty to create art.

The essay examines whether women were capable of producing, and in fact free to produce work of the quality of William Shakespeare, addressing the limitations that past and present women writers face.

Woolf's father, Sir Leslie Stephen, in line with the thinking of the era, believed that only the boys of the family should be sent to school. Woolf encouraged the image of herself that, because her father did not believe in investing in the education of his daughters, she was left without the experience of formal schooling. However, recent discoveries in the archive of King's College London show that Virginia and her sister Vanessa attended King's College London's Women's Department for classes in Greek and German over a number of years. In delivering the lectures outlined in the essay, Woolf is speaking to women who have the opportunity to learn in a formal, communal setting. Woolf lets her audience know the importance of their education at the same time warning them of the precariousness of their position in society.

Some Reflections upon Marriage

Throughout her life, in her personal relationships as well as in her role as a public intellectual, the English thinker Mary Astell (1666-1731) supported women, wrote to and for women, and, to the greatest extent possible, moved from advocacy to action on their behalf. In Some Reflections upon Marriage (London, 1700), Astell focused her attention on the institution of marriage. For Astell, marriage is a divinely ordained state, a "Christian institution," the only way to perpetuate humankind. But, she asks, "if marriage be such a blessed state, how comes it . . . there are so few happy marriages?" When her analysis is complete, there is not much to recommend the institution, at least from a woman's perspective. Marriage is necessary since it represents "the only honorable way of continuing mankind." But, as Astell observes, the woman who marries "ought to lay it down for an indisputable maxim that her husband must govern absolutely and entirely and that she has nothing else to do but to please and obey." Her radical conclusion? If she cannot accept marriage "as it truly is," then a woman might choose not to marry: perhaps, Astell suggests, "it is not good for a woman to marry." Despite the importance of Some Reflections upon Marriage, no previous edition has addressed the complications of Astell's prose style, and none has added the kind of glossing and notes that will assist student readers in their engagement with her distinctive voice. This edition, designed for classroom use, provides an ample introduction, a carefully modernized text, helpful glosses and notes, and a useful bibliography with references for further reading.

Empathy: Why It Matters, And How To Get It

Influential popular philosopher Roman Krznaric argues our brains are wired for social connection: empathy is at the heart of who we are. It's an essential, transforming quality we must develop for the 21st Century.

Through encounters with actors, activists, groundbreaking designers, undercover journalists, nurses, bankers and neuroscientists, Krznaric defines a new breed of adventurer. He sets out the six life-enhancing habits of highly empathic people, whose skills enable them to connect with others in extraordinary ways.

Empathy has the power to transform relationships, from the personal to the political. Krznaric contends that, as we move on from an age of introspection, empathy will be key to fundamental social change - making this book a manifesto for revolution.

The Thirty-Nine Steps

The Life and Death of Mary Wollstonecraft

Witty, courageous and unconventional, Mary Wollstonecraft was one of the most controversial figures of her day. She published "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman", travelled to revolutionary France and lived through the Terror and the destruction of the incipient French feminist movement; produced an illegitimate daughter; and married William Godwin before dying in childbed at the age of thirty-eight. Often embattled and bitterly disappointed, she never gave up her radical ideas or her belief that courage and honesty would triumph over convention.

Winner of the Whitbread First Book Prize in 1974, this haunting biography achieved wide critical acclaim. Writing in the New Statesman, J H Plumb called it, "Wide, penetrating, sympathetic. There is no better book on Mary Wollstonecraft, nor is there likely to be"

Creating Freedom: Power, Control and the Fight for Our Future

The ideal of freedom is at the heart of our political and economic system. It is foundational to our sense of justice, our way of life, our conception of what it is to be human. But are we free in the way that we think we are?

In Creating Freedom, Raoul Martinez brings together a torrent of mind-expanding ideas, facts and arguments to dismantle sacred myths central to our society - myths about free will, free markets, free media and free elections. From the lottery of our birth to the consent-manufacturing influence of concentrated wealth and power, this far-reaching manifesto lifts the veil on the mechanisms of control that pervade our lives. It shows that the more we understand how the world shapes us, the more effectively we can shape the world.

A highly original and scholarly exploration of the most urgent questions of our time, it reveals that we are far less free than we like to think, yet it also shows that freedom is something we can create together, and that our very survival may depend on us doing so.
