The Death of Capital: How Creative Policy Can Restore Stability by Michael E. Lewitt
English | ISBN: 0470466502 | edition 2010 | PDF | 292 pages | 1,8 mb

In The Death of Capital, respected portfolio manager and longtime investment professional Michael Lewitt looks at how the U.S. economy has increasingly been dominated by short-term speculation rather than industrial expansion in recent years. These disastrous trends, described here as financialization, ignore the fact that capital itself is a highly unstable process rather than a fixed object or category. As a result of our failure to understand the true nature of capital, we have developed a financial and regulatory system that does exactly the opposite of what it should be doing—favoring obscurity over transparency and fomenting instability rather than growth.

1066: The Hidden History in the Bayeux Tapestry by Andrew Bridgeford
English | April 4, 2006 | ISBN: 0802777422 | 354 pages | PDF | 9 MB

For more than 900 years the Bayeux Tapestry has preserved one of history's greatest dramas: the Norman Conquest of England, culminating in the death of King Harold at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Historians have held for centuries that the majestic tapestry trumpets the glory of William the Conqueror and the victorious Normans. But is this true? In 1066, a brilliant piece of historical detective work, Andrew Bridgeford reveals a very different story that reinterprets and recasts the most decisive year in English history.

Vintage City | 1992/1961 | ISBN: 067974195X 9780679741954 | 473 pages | PDF | 110 MB

A direct and fundamentally optimistic indictment of the short-sightedness and intellectual arrogance that has characterized much of urban planning in this century, this book has, since its first publication in 1961, become the standard against which all endeavors in that field are measured. This book is an attack on current methods of city planning and re-building. It is also an explanation of new principles and an argument for different methods from those now in use.

Paul Auster - Man in the Dark

Genre: suspense

So begins Paul Auster's brilliant, devastating tale about the many realities we inhabit as wars flame all around us. Seventy-two-year-old August Brill is recovering from a car accident in his daughter's house in Vermont. When sleep refuses to come, he lies in bed and tells himself stories, struggling to push back thoughts about things he would prefer to forget - his wife's recent death and the horrific murder of his granddaughter's boyfriend, Titus. The retired book critic imagines a parallel world in which America is not at war with Iraq but with itself. In this other America the twin towers did not fall, and the 2000 election results led to secession, as state after state pulled away from the union, and a bloody civil war ensued.

“I am alone in the dark, turning the world around in my head as I struggle through another bout of insomnia, another white night in the great American wilderness.”

Emotions in the History of Witchcraft (Palgrave Studies in the History of Emotions) by Laura Kounine
English | 10 Mar. 2017 | ISBN: 1137529024 | 321 Pages | PDF | 4.77 MB

Bringing together leading historians, anthropologists, and religionists, this volume examines the unbridled passions of witchcraft from the Middle Ages to the present. Witchcraft is an intensely emotional crime, rooted in the belief that envy and spite can cause illness or even death. Witch-trials in turn are emotionally driven by the grief of alleged victims and by the fears of magistrates and demonologists.

After 22 years in the Army, there was nothing Craig Jackson (CJ) didn’t know about the deadly craft of bomb detection and disposal. He was the go-to guy for clearing an area of explosives. So when he left the military, there was really no choice: his expertise was rare, sought after, and potentially very lucrative. He’d long ago learnt to put the danger to one side; now he loved the adrenaline rush – the exhilaration – of the job, staying cool in the face of death, outsmarting the murderous and wily bomb-makers…

Death in Babylon: Alexander the Great and Iberian Empire in the Muslim Orient

Death in Babylon: Alexander the Great and Iberian Empire in the Muslim Orient

Death in Babylon: Alexander the Great and Iberian Empire in the Muslim Orient by Vincent Barletta
Publisher: University Of Chicago Press | Number Of Pages: 272 | Publication Date: 2010-05-15 | ISBN-10: 0226037363 | PDF | 1 Mb

Though Alexander the Great lived more than seventeen centuries before the onset of Iberian expansion into Muslim Africa and Asia, he loomed large in the literature of late medieval and early modern Portugal and Spain. Exploring little-studied chronicles, chivalric romances, novels, travelogues, and crypto-Muslim texts, Vincent Barletta shows that the story of Alexander not only sowed the seeds of Iberian empire but foreshadowed the decline of Portuguese and Spanish influence in the centuries to come.
Death in Babylon depicts Alexander as a complex symbol of Western domination, immortality, dissolution, heroism, villainy, and death. But Barletta also shows that texts ostensibly celebrating the conqueror were haunted by failure. Examining literary and historical works in Aljamiado, Castilian, Catalan, Greek, Latin, and Portuguese, Death in Babylon develops a view of empire and modernity informed by the ethical metaphysics of French phenomenologist Emmanuel Levinas. A novel contribution to the literature of empire building, Death in Babylon provides a frame for the deep mortal anxiety that has infused and given shape to the spread of imperial Europe from its very beginning.

English | 2008-08 | ISBN: 0880993340 | 425 pages | PDF | 3,6 MB

This book provides a comprehensive look at an industry that is responsible for up to 70 percent of the value added in the manufacture of motor vehicles and whose employees outnumber final assembly workers by nearly four to one: auto parts suppliers. Klier and Rubenstein present the key characteristics of the vast network of parts suppliers and describe the changing geographics of U.S. motor vehicle production at the local, regional, national, and international levels. This helps illustrate the challenges in store for motor vehicle parts production in the United States and especially in the Midwest.
