Integrity

Pret: 123,00 RON

Stephen L. Carter

Integrity

Why do we care more about winning than about playing by the rules? Integrity - all of us are in favor of it, but nobody seems to know how to make sure that we get it. From presidential candidates to crusading journalists to the lords of collegiate sports, everybody promises to deliver integrity, yet all too often, the promises go unfulfilled. Stephen Carter examines why the virtue of integrity holds such sway over the American political imagination. By weaving together insights from philosophy, theology, history and law, along with examples drawn from current events and a dose of personal experience, Carter offers a vision of integrity that has implications for everything from marriage and politics to professional football. He discusses the difficulties involved in trying to legislate integrity as well as the possibilities for teaching it. As the Cleveland Plain Dealer said, "In a measured and sensible voice, Carter attempts to document some of the paradoxes and pathologies that result from pervasive ethical realism... If the modern drift into relativism has left us in a cultural and political morass, Carter suggests that the assumption of personal integrity is the way out." ...

What secrets connect Egypt's Great Pyramids, the Freemasons, and the Council on Foreign Relations? In this astonishing book, celebrated journalist Jim Marrs examines the world's most closely guarded secrets, tracing the history of clandestine societies and the power they have wielded - from the ancient mysteries to modern-day conspiracy theories. Searching for truth, he uncovers disturbing evidence that the real movers and shakers of the world collude covertly to start and stop wars, manipulate stock markets, maintain class distinctions, and even censor the news. Provocative and utterly compelling, Rule by Secrecy offers a singular worldview that may explain who we are, where we came from, and where we are going.

  

Lo Que VI: Experiencias de un Periodista

Pret: 111,00 RON

Jorge del Rayo Ramos

Lo Que VI: Experiencias de un Periodista Alrededor del Mundo

Este libro cuenta lo que el prestigioso periodista Jorge Ramos no ha podido decir por television. Como el mismo dice, muchas veces las cosas mas interesantes al cubrir una noticia ocurren detras de las camaras y estos relatos de viajes son el mejor ejemplo. Como reportero conductor titular del Noticiero Univision y escritor de varios libros, Ramos ha recorrido el mundo en busca de la noticia y ha entrevistado a algunos de los personajes mas poderosos del mundo. Todas esas vivencias estan aqui. Ademas, esta version actualizada del libro incluye sus experiencias, nunca antes contadas, en la guerra de Irak. Algunos relatos son solo ojeadas, hasta pestanazos, de sus viajes. En otros, se adentra a lo mas profundo y doloroso de un pais. Todos estan cargados de emocion y han marcado al periodista de una forma muy personal. Ver con los ojos bien abiertos y luego contar lo que viste, dice Ramos, es la funcion fundamental de un periodista. Solo ese ejercicio basico le permite despues decir: "Yo lo vi, nadie me lo conto."
