Dumnezeu Mi-e Broker

Editura: Humanitas

Anul aparitiei: 2008

Un fachir al bursei newyorkeze paraseste metropola si pleaca sa se reculeaga departe de lumea dezlantuita. Ajuns la manastirea Cana, el devine fratele Mog (prescurtare de la "Mogul") si cunoaste un abate care vrea sa-i foloseasca deprinderile pentru rentabilizarea asezamantului. Caci manastirea Cana sta sa cada, resursele sunt puþine, iar banii lipsesc din cont. Fratele Mog se prinde in hora revirimentului, dar trebuie sa combata apetitul bolnav pentru literatura motivaþionala pe care-l are abatele, convins ca diversii guru cu tiraje cosmice pot fi surse de inspiratie si modele de urmat. Lucrurile se complica odata cu descinderea la Cana a monseniorului Raffaello Maraviglia, personaj care nu-si merita numele si care nutreste o pasiune frenetica pentru vinurile de colectie si pentru meciurile lui AC Milan. Rezultatul este o farsa cu accente bufe, in care intervine la un moment dat si bratul lung al FBI-ului.

Jack Coombs: A Life in Baseball

Editura: MCFARLAND & CO INC

Anul aparitiei: 2008

Jack Coombs rose to deadball-era stardom as the ace of Connie Mack's Athletics, winners of back-to-back world championships in 1910 and 1911. One of the few players of his day to have graduated from college, Coombs debuted for the Athletics in 1906, fresh from Colby College. Within a few years, he was one of the best and best-known pitchers in baseball, leading the majors in victories in consecutive seasons. But then in 1913 Coombs contracted typhoid fever, a disease that cost the right-hander two seasons at the peak of his career. And while he battled his way back, pitching well in his comeback season of 1915 and then leading the Brooklyn Robins to the World Series in 1916, he was never again the dominant pitcher he had been. Coombs went on to a long career as a coach for Duke University, and wrote one of the most highly regarded instructional books on baseball ever published.

On Being Human: A Work in Progress: Monologues & Essays 2009-2011

Editura: BRENTWOOD BENSON MUSIC INC

Anul aparitiei: 2011

Being human is a work in progress says John Tierney in this easy-to- read collection of monologues and essays on...well... being human. "Dr.T." as his students call him, offers insightful commentary on some of the basics: emotion, connection, spirituality, identity, sexuality and more. Through anecdotes and stories Professor Tierney infuses in his writing the humor and wit that has made him popular with students for more than four decades, a 'little weird' by his own admission yet engaging and often LOL funny. John challenges you in this "Littlebook" to nurture a finer moral sense within yourself; to imagine a finer moral order in the world; and, to lead the way for others. He asks that you start with a single moral truth: It is wrong to kill other humans

Conceived in Liberty: The American Worldview in Theory and Practice

Editura: TRANSACTION PUBL

Anul aparitiei: 2016

Conceived in Liberty is a cultural, sociological and geopolitical review of the uniquely American notion that the country and its people are "exceptional." While all nations have their own patriotic commitments, no other people have outwardly declared their power as vigorously as have Americans, especially since World War II.John J. Tierney, Jr. advances the idea that liberty is the singular source of the power of the American worldview and all other elements of this society--equality, patience, charity, justice, etc.--are derived from liberty. He argues that this worldview comes from this one source and is responsible for the many movements that may engage the public's interest, such as women's rights, civil rights, and voting rights. Such movements are all positive, but they could not exist in a society devoid of liberty.Conceived in Liberty also traces other main components of the American worldview: geographic expanse, immigration, energy of the populace, diversity, public policies, and the elements that contribute to exceptionalism. Tierney is not blind to some of the deficiencies of the United States, but he posits that the liberty it manifests is truly the political globe's ...

Anul aparitiei: 2014

The Confluence of Faith, Science and the potential for Peace. The BOOK is a new novel by John McDonnell Tierney designed to teach and entertain. The author offer a Big Idea (Don't Kill); timeless topics (morality, justice, human nature, spirituality) through which to explore and think about the Big Idea; and an engaging context (the story) in which this exploration and thinking plays out. Throughout the world today, many people are making decisions about morality, what is right and just, based on their interpretation of what is "godly." That is, what a holy book tells them is godly. For almost all of human history, people have killed other people believing such killing to be a moral act, sanctioned by God. This remains the case today. Despite all the rhetoric among "moderate" religious folk about theirs being a religion of "peace;" Christians, Jews, and Muslims actively participate in armed conflicts where killing is inevitable, or passively condone it, blaming it on human nature. This is the story of one of the nearly four billion People of the Book trying to decide if their God wants them to love their neighbors or kill their neighbors. Although a work of fiction, The BOOK ...

Chasing Ghosts: Unconventional Warfare in American History

Editura: BIBLIOBAZAAR

Anul aparitiei: 2006

The turbulent occupation of Iraq has once again embroiled the United States military in an unconventional war. Chasing Ghosts is a study of unconventional warfare in American military history and its implications for the present and future. John J. Tierney examines America's numerous past experiences with this type of warfare from the Revolutionary War, when American irregulars fought the British and Loyalists, through the Vietnam War, which involved the U.S. military in its largest-ever counterinsurgency campaigns. Other cases covered in the book include guerrilla fighting during the American Civil War; wars between the United States and Native Americans; the Philippine Insurrection; the campaign against Mexico's Pancho Villa; U.S. occupations of the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and Nicaragua; and other examples from World War II and the Cold War. Most of America's past encounters with this type of warfare have been forgotten, requiring successive generations of military strategists and policy makers to stumble for answers and improvise strategies every time. While each war has its own unique circumstances, Tierney's analytical history will provide the case studies necessary to ...
