Of all the generals in the ancient world, none matches the accomplishments of Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and Hannibal of Carthage. This audiobook will look at the lives and leadership styles of these three commanders. Alexander conquered the fullest expanse of the known world and brought Europe and Asia under one sovereign. Julius Caesar was a master statesmen, capable of translating military victory into long-term political gains. His vanquishing of the Gauls and his political opponents laid the groundwork for several centuries of Roman imperial might. None could match the tactical genius of Hannibal, who threatened the destruction of Rome at the Battle of Cannae. Whatever their backgrounds, these rulers showed that the right military commander at the right time in history can destroy an empire, change civilization, and alter the course of world history forever. 1.

In the second edition of this witty and infectious book, Madsen Pirie builds upon his guide to using - and indeed abusing - logic in order to win arguments. By including new chapters on how to win arguments in writing, in the pub, with a friend, on Facebook and in 140 characters (on Twitter), Pirie provides the complete guide to triumphing in altercations ranging from the everyday to the downright serious. He identifies with devastating examples all the most common fallacies popularly used in argument. We all like to think of ourselves as clear-headed and logical - but all readers will find in this book fallacies of which they themselves are guilty. The author shows you how to simultaneously strengthen your own thinking and identify the weaknesses in other people arguments. And, more mischievously, Pirie also shows how to be deliberately illogical - and get away with it. This book will make you maddeningly smart: your family, friends and opponents will all wish that you had never read it. Publisher´s warning: In the wrong hands this book is dangerous. We recommend that you arm yourself with it whilst keeping out of the hands of others. Only buy this book as a gift if you are sure that you can trust the recipient.
This study presents a nuanced look at the environmental history of the GDR. It looks at both the state agencies and the oppositional environmental groups, questioning the usual interpretations. The image of the GDR as an ecological ´´failed state´´ became deeply implanted in memory during the years 1989/1990. In this volume, Tobias Huff takes as examples the themes of forest protection and air pollution control to write a very different story of environmental protection in the GDR, thereby questioning the usual image of decay. He introduces the reader to the proponents and opponents of active environmental politics in the GDR, analyzes the governmental decision-making structures and uncovers the connections to oppositional environment groups. Huff thus surmounts the usual idea of a complete contrast between the GDR state authorities and environmental groups.
