9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume in the Revolutions Series presents Jesus Christ as a figure akin to revolutionaries like Robespierre, Marx, and Che Guevara. In this new presentation of the Gospels, Terry Eagleton makes a powerful and provocative argument for Jesus Christ as a social, political and moral radical, a friend of anti-imperialists, outcasts and marginal, a champion of the poor, the sick and immigrants, and as an opponent of the rich, religious hierarchs, and hypocrites everywhere - in other words, as a figure akin to revolutionaries like Robespierre, Marx, and Che Guevara. 1.

Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, Volum...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Tournament poker is a tough game to play but the rewards for success can be huge. Even regular online tournaments offer substantial prizes running to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Jonathan Little, a highly successful poker professional who has won over $4 million in tournament play in just four years, explains exactly how to succeed in this highly competitive field. Playing technically sound poker is crucial but this is far from the only skill necessary. Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, Volume 1 dealt with the fundamentals of play. Volume 2 builds on this base and examines the highly complex issue of how to handle the different stages of a tournament. At times the best strategy is to play loose, create problems for your opponent and thus keep accumulating chips. At other times an ultra-tight strategy will be the most profitable. Understanding when to "change gears" is a highly developed skill that requires a great deal of study and experience. Jonathan Little has that experience. Managing life as a professional poker player throws up a number of issues in itself and Jonathan calls upon his many years as a pro to address these. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Little.

The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China , ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Finally available in paperback, Ralph D. Sawyer's incomparable study of ancient Chinese warfare.One of the most profound studies of warfare ever written, The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China presents us with an Eastern tradition of strategic thought that emphasizes outwitting one's opponent through speed, stealth, flexibility, and a minimum of force - an approach very different from that stressed in the West, where the advantages of brute strength have overshadowed more subtle methods.Safeguarded for centuries by the ruling elites of imperial China, even in modern times, these writings have been known to only a handful of Western specialists. In this volume are seven separate essays, written between 500 B.C. and A.D. 700, that preserve the essential tenets of strategy distilled from the experience of the most brilliant warriors of ancient China. This accurate translation remedies a serious gap in Western knowledge of Asian thought. Based on the best available classical Chinese manuscripts, some only recently discovered by archaeologists, The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China is a uniquely important contribution to the world's military literature and is essential reading for anyone interested in China's rich cultural heritage or in the timeless principles of successful warfare strategy. 1.

Rutherford B. Hayes , Hörbuch, Digital, 1, 317min
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

If Rutherford B. Hayes's significance as chief executive had faded in the public memory, nothing brought it back into our consciousness more than the similarities between the controversial elections of 1876 and 2000. In 1876, Hayes's opponent, Samuel Tilden, won the popular vote and led the Electoral College, but the returns in several states were in dispute. A special electoral commission convened and handed the presidency to Hayes. Newspapers of the time cried of "the iniquity in Florida." Yet this cry of foul was only one of several obstacles facing the new president. After years of Grant-era corruption, the Republican Party looked to the earnest and upright Hayes to revitalize their flagging and scandalized party. As the volume of protest over election results increased, the Southern Democrats threatened to oust Hayes, and so he was forced to conciliate. To the dismay of the more conservative Republicans, he struck a deal to end military occupation of the South, thus ending the Reconstruction. In retrospect, as historian Hans L. Trefousse points out, it was this decision that helped unify the country and which restored legitimacy to the Oval Office. As chief executive, Hayes's accomplishments were mixed. His conservative financial policies helped lift the country's economic depression, and he was able to reform the civil service and quell the 1877 labor uprising. But many of his well-intentioned goals, such as a bill that would help fund education for black children, were never realized, and many contemporary historians fault him for his lack of action on these fronts. Rather than pursue a second term, Hayes decided to retire, maintaining his reputation for temperance, authority, and stability. Ultimately, it was Hayes's ability to compromise in order to help revitalize a floundering and factionalized nation that serves as his real legacy. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ira Claffey.

Thomas Manns "Betrachtungen eines Unpolitischen...
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Thomas Manns "Betrachtungen eines Unpolitischen" gehören zu den von der literaturwissenschaftlichen Forschung eher ungeliebten Texten des Autors; das gilt sowohl für die engere Thomas-Mann-Forschung als auch für die Forschung zur Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts insgesamt. Die Gründe für diese Zurückhaltung gegenüber einem der bedeutendsten Texte der "Konservativen Revolution" und des frühen Thomas Mann sind vielfältig: Die eifernde Kriegsapologie passt wenig zu dem Bild des Autors als bedeutendem Gegner des Nationalsozialismus, das von einem nicht geringen Teil der Forschung gerne gezeichnet wird. Zumal erschweren die heute nur noch schwer zu rekonstruierenden intertextuellen Bezüge das Verständnis des Textes. Er stellt seine Leser damals wie heute im Hinblick auf seine Bedingungen sowie seine inhaltlichen und formalen Formationen vor erhebliche Herausforderungen. Eine in sich differenzierte Analyse und Interpretation der zentralen Inhalte, der Form und Kontexte ist somit auch 100Jahre nach dem Erscheinen der "Betrachtungen" nicht vorhanden. Dieser Band, der auf eine Tagung zurückgeht, die im September 2018 an der Ludwig-Maximilian-Universität München stattfand, versucht diese Lücke in einer interdisiplinären Kooperation von Literaturwissenschaftlern, politischen Philosophen und Politologen zu schließen.Thomas Mann's "Betrachtungen eines Unpolitischen" is a text which is rather unpopular with literary scholars for manifold reasons: The zealous war apology is rather incongrous with the author's image as a significant opponent of National Socialism drawn by many researchers; and the intertextual references, which are difficult to reconstruct today, render understanding the text exacting. Then as now, it poses considerable challenges to its readers with regard to its prerequisites as well as its content and formal formations. This accounts for the fact that a differentiated analysis and interpretation of the central contents, form and contexts is still lacking, even 100 years after the publication of the "Betrachtungen". This volume, which goes back to a conference held in September 2018 at the Ludwig-Maximilian-University of Munich, attempts to close this gap in an interdisciplinary cooperation of literary scholars, political philosophers and political scientists.
