- - - and out of the WEST
This is the true life chronicle of a youth who emerged from the flat lands of Western Canada to occupy senior leadership positions in the corridors of influence and power in the often disparate worlds of international business and banking—the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia. He was a marketing pioneer whose successes, and failures, will resonate among business and marketing leaders facing unprecedented change in the digital age. With a loving, understanding wife and children born in four cities coast to coast and two countries, he served in the Canadian army in two wars, and he overcame obstacles that would have beaten lesser men. He rose to several pinnacles wit...

" Επιστροφή, Στις ρίζες μας .’’
Ονομάζομαι Σαρούκος Ιωάννης (Γιάννης), του Σπύρου και της Νομικής. Κατάγομαι από τα Δωδεκάνησα, συγκεκριμένα από το νησί των σφουγγαράδων, την ΚΑΛΥΜΝΟ, που είναι και θα παραμείνει, στην καρδιά μου και στην ψυχή μου…για πάντα. Νιώθω την ανάγκη και συγχρόνως την υποχρέωση να εκπληρώσω, μία ΥΠΟΣΧΕΣΗ που έδωσα κάποτε σε κάποιο άτομο, που δυστυχώς, δεν ευρίσκεται, ΣΗΜΕΡΑ, ανάμεσα μας, την ΔΕΣΠΟΙΝΑ, την γυναίκα μου και μητέρα των παιδιών μου.

"...da Partigiano ero l'ultima ruota del carro..."
Maristella Bertero, nata nei primi anni del secondo dopoguerra, ha potuto sentire, fin dall’infanzia, i racconti di prima mano dei Partigiani che hanno partecipato alla Resistenza nelle Langhe. Convinta che le grandi vittorie siano state conseguite con il contributo delle persone più semplici, degli eroi sconosciuti, ha voluto raccogliere la testimonianza di un uomo che, giovanissimo, è stato staffetta partigiana. Nel racconto di Lorenzo Rossello, viene ricostruito un pezzo di storia di una regione dove “ogni lapide, ogni data, ogni fotografia, ha infiniti episodi da raccontare”, intrisi di dolore, ma anche di eroismo e generosità. Una storia “minima”, raccontata da chi h...

"1812" Napoleon I in Russia
The following pages are not offered to the reader as a history of the invasion of Russia by Napoleon. They are but the statement of the basis of observation on which M. Verestchagin has founded his great series of pictures illustrative of the campaign. These pictures are now to be exhibited in this country, and the painter has naturally desired to show us from what point of view he has approached the study of his subject—one of the greatest subjects in the whole range of history—especially for a Russian artist. The point of view is—inevitably in his case—that of the Realist; and this consideration gives unity to the conception of his whole career and endeavour. He has eve...

"Abused-But Not Broken"
Abuse does not discriminate. It does not matter if you are rich or poor, live uptown or in the suburbs. It lurks in homes, all over the planet, and it destroys the lives of an untold number of people. To experience stolen innocence, withdrawal into oneself, loss of self-worth, is life suppose to be this way? Fear is an extremely powerful weapon. It is a tool that was used then as well as now. “Abused-But Not Broken” by Queen N. Hayes is long overdue. It is a return to innocence. Abused-But Not Broken informs others around the world that no one deserves to be subjected to any type of abuse.

"All Governments Lie"
Boasting equal parts scholarship and style, <i>"All Governments Lie"</i> is a highly readable, groundbreaking, and timely look at I. F. Stone -- one of America's most independent and revered journalists, whose work carries the same immediacy it did almost a half century ago, highlighting the ever-present need for dissenting voices. <br /><br /> In the world of Washington political journalism, notorious for trading independence for access, I. F. "Izzy" Stone was so unique as to be a genuine wonder. Always skeptical -- "All governments lie, but disaster lies in wait for countries whose officials smoke the same hashish they give out," he memorably quipped -- Stone was ahead ...

"Alljährlich im Frühjahr schwärmen unsere jungen Mädchen nach England"
In der Zwischenkriegszeit gingen sie zu Hunderten, in den späten Vierziger- und Fünfzigerjahren zu Tausenden. Sie hiessen Emma, Bertha oder Marie und kamen aus Wilderswil, Urnäsch oder Bellinzona. Sie arbeiteten als Hausangestellte, Kindermädchen oder Gesellschafterinnen in Liverpool oder London und auf Landgütern von Adligen. Sie gingen, obwohl die Medien warnten: vor dem britischen Wetter, vor dem englischen Klassendünkel, vor unerwünschten Schwangerschaften. Ein Massenexodus von Frauen, wie er in der Schweizergeschichte wohl kein zweites Mal vorkam. Und wenn sie in England geblieben sind, dann fast immer deshalb, weil genau das passierte, wovor sie so eindringlich gewa...

This is the story of my life full of events and adventure that will fascinate the reader as life was so different then. My children often complained that they had little idea of the land of their ancestors.

Wie Holger Senzel sein Leben in den Griff bekam<br /><br />„Sie sind auch liebenswert, wenn Sie schwach sind!“ hörte der Journalist Holger Senzel immer wieder von seinen Therapeuten. Aber sie halfen ihm nicht stark zu werden. Fünfmal begab der Autor sich auf die Reise ins eigene Ich – und bekam sein Leben trotzdem nicht in den Griff. Auch wenn er seine Fehler erkannte und lernte, was schief lief, und wie er es besser machen könnte. Aber was nützt alle Erkenntnis, wenn die Kraft zur Veränderung fehlt. Irgendwann gab er die Seelenbeschau auf und trat sich einfach mal für vier Wochen selbst in den Hintern. Sport, Theater, Museen, Bücher, Aufräumen, Kochen, Steuererklärung ma...
