Lost among war statistics and battle lines is the very real tragedy of simple people trying to survive in wretched conditions-old people and children dodging bullets, diving for cover from exploding shells, running away from the debris of human body parts that threaten to engulf them. No Country but War gives us detailed and poignant descriptions of being caught in the brutal violence and chaos of the Lebanese Civil War-from saving a dying child whose parents couldn't get medical assistance to desperately talking his own way out of an execution, after being forced to his knees with a gun at hi

All living organisms are like biological robots. Their physical actions, organic capabilities and senses are firmly and very narrowly limited and so programmed in the DNA. Brain, the master controller of the living system, is as susceptible to external and internal stresses as all other bodily components. The brain is also abode of the mind, and the mind is the embodiment of thoughts. The scientific observation that brain and mind die simultaneously is irrefutable. Wherein the brain the mind parks itself is a mystery. The brain is more intricate than the universe and the mind exceeds the brain

Philipp Bagus is a young scholar with a large influence, having forecast all the problems with the Euro and having persuaded many economists on the Continent that this currency is no better than any fiat currency. In some ways it is much worse because it has cartelized the management of European monetary regimes and created a terrible moral hazard. With this book, Professor Bagus brings his scholarship to English readers, explaining the background to the idea of European unity and its heritage of sound money. He explains that the Euro is not what the older classical liberals had hoped for but

Harry Turtledove’s remarkable alternative history novels brilliantly remind us of how fragile the thread of time can be, and offer us a world of “what if.” Drawing on a magnificent cast of characters that includes soldiers, generals, lovers, spies, and demagogues, Turtledove returns to an epic tale that only he could tell–the story of a North American continent, separated into two bitterly opposed nations, that stands on the verge of exploding once again.In 1914 they called it The Great War, and few could imagine anything worse. For nearly three decades a peace forged i
