C Case An Unlikely Journey from Transit Cop to Internal Affairs Bureau Squad Commander
Against the backdrop of the 1995 merger of the NYC Transit and Housing Police Departments into the New York City Police Department, this is the story of a transit police lieutenant who abruptly finds himself performing a job no cop wants to do—namely, investigating other cops. Complicating the situation is the fact that the lieutenant has no prior investigative experience but is thrust into command of a squad of seasoned NYPD investigators. The Lieutenant must deftly walk a tightrope of managing his squad while learning how to perform the wide range of investigations conducted by the Internal Affairs Bureau.

C. Brown
During the fall of 2004, I became inspired to document my experiences and how they’ve affected the way in which I do things. I’ve had the privilege of capturing several of these experiences and highlighting how I progressed. In addition, I’ve discussed how I gained clarity and provide feedback for how one could handle similar situations – should they be faced with them. In creating this project, my intent was to give others a brief overview of my personal journal - and offer a linguistic tour of my mind.

C. Francis Jenkins, Pioneer of Film and Television
This is the first biography of the important but long-forgotten American inventor Charles Francis Jenkins (1867-1934). Historian Donald G. Godfrey documents the life of Jenkins from his childhood in Indiana and early life in the West to his work as a prolific inventor whose productivity was cut short by an early death. Jenkins was an inventor who made a difference.<br /><br />As one of America’s greatest independent inventors, Jenkins’s passion was to meet the needs of his day and the future. In 1895 he produced the first film projector able to show a motion picture on a large screen, coincidentally igniting the first film boycott among his Quaker viewers when the film he...

C. H. Spurgeon's Autobiography
As one of the most revered Baptist preachers of his time, Charles Haddon Spurgeon's eventful and prolific life and career offer outstanding inspiration for all Christians to this day.<br /> In the first volume of Spurgeon's autobiography, we witness his rise from modest obscurity, embarking on a long road toward fame and admiration as a representative of God on Earth. A lengthy, lively and detailed biography is helped by the fact that Spurgeon was an effusive and prolific talker and author of many documents: he would recount incidents of his life on paper and in speeches regularly.&#xa0;<br /> We find in this volume the famous instance in which the young Spurgeon encounte...

C. P. Snow and the Struggle of Modernity
The condition of modernity springs from that tension between science and the humanities that had its roots in the Enlightenment but reached its full flowering with the rise of twentieth-century technology. It manifests itself most notably in the crisis of individuality that is generated by the nexus of science, literature, and politics, one that challenges each of us to find a way of balancing our personal identities between our public and private selves in an otherwise estranging world. This challenge, which can only be expressed as "the struggle of modernity," perhaps finds no better expression than in C. P. Snow. In his career as novelist, scientist, and civil servant,...

C. S. Lewis für eine neue Generation
"Ich saß an einem Fluss und machte Streckenhalt auf einer Fahrradtour. Das Wasser floss still vorbei, es wehte ein leiser Wind. Da schoss mir die Idee durch den Kopf: „Ich möchte gerne eine neue Generation in das Leben und Werk von christlichen Denkern einführen.“ An einem Morgen trug ich meinen älteren Söhnen eine Einführung zu C. S. Lewis vor. Nicht nur sie waren fasziniert. Meine viel beschäftigte Frau setzte sich dazu."<br /><br />So begann die Idee, verschiedene christliche Denker aus dem 20. Jahrhundert einer neuen Generation zugänglich zu machen.<br /><br />Ein zweites Erlebnis verstärkte diesen Wunsch. Ich stand lesend in der Kolonne der Abendkasse, um ein Ticket ...

C. S. Lewis y la Iglesia católica
A C.S. Lewis se le ha llamado el "apóstol de los escépticos", responsable de acercar a más personas al cristianismo que el mejor de los predicadores del siglo XX. Un gran número de conversos al catolicismo, algunos muy famosos, conceden a este escritor británico un papel importante en su proceso de conversión. Pero el hecho irónico y sorprendente es que el propio Lewis nunca llegó a entrar formalmente en la Iglesia católica... aunque abrazara muchas enseñanzas indiscutiblemente católicas, como el purgatorio y el sacramento de la confesión.&#xa0; El reconocido y prestigioso autor Joseph Pearce, gran admirador de Lewis, es la persona ideal para tratar de responder a esta cu...

C.G. Jung and the Scientific Attitude
C.G. Jung and the Scientific Attitude is a survey and assessment of the contributions of the great Swiss psychiatrist. Since its viewpoint is that of an historian of psychology rather than that of a practitioner, stress is placed on the conceptual consistency of Jung’s approach, and the fundamental philosophical differences that separate it from most other works in psychology. Metatheoretical questions and implicit criticism of the narrow metatheoretical presuppositions that have so deleteriously affected academic psychology, pervade it.<br />The first three chapters correspond to the three major phases of Jung’s creative career; respectively, they deal with the psycholog...
