“Got your back,” is more than a saying in Retro’s world. Standing united as a club is a given, and loyalty is held as a standard of brotherhood. Forgiveness for transgressions, however, does not come easily, or ever in some cases. Retro’s only demand for his brothers is honor and integrity, and his belief is that everything else will fall into place behind those qualities. He is not wrong. Full description: In the rough realm of bikers, there are no shortcuts to win a place among the old guard. It’s a world where respect can only be earned, trust is painfully gained, and loyalty will be fiercely returned. Jerry Rogers lived his life bound to those firm tenets which anchored his brotherhood. MHL&R was more than a patch on a leather cut, it ran thick as blood through Retro’s veins as he worked to better things for his club, and family. Locked for years in a loveless marriage, Retro still found a sense of pleasure and peace knowing he’d at least always done his best to buffer their children from his single mistake. Confronted by evidence that what happened in the past wouldn’t remain quietly buried any longer, Retro embarks on what might become his most important journey down memory lane. One that can only end in blood…and death. 18+ due to explicit content. *Please note this book is part of the Neither This, Nor That MC book series, featuring characters from additional books in the series.

What happens if I drop an ant? What books are bad for you? What percentage of the world's water is contained in a cow? The Oxbridge undergraduate interviews are infamous for their unique ways of assessing candidates, and from these peculiar enquiries, professors can tell just how smart you really are. John Farndon has collected together 75 of the most intriguing questions taken from actual admission interviews and gives full answers to each, taking the reader through the fascinating histories, philosophies, sciences and arts that underlie each problem. This is a book for everyone who likes to think they're clever, or who thinks they'd like to be clever. And cleverness is not just knowing stuff, it's how laterally, deeply and interestingly you can bend your brain. Guesstimating the population of Croydon, for example, opens a chain of thought from which you can predict the strength of a nuclear bomb ...and that's just the start of it.

"The book I had been waiting for. I can't recommend it highly enough." —Bill Gates The era of autonomous weapons has arrived. Today around the globe, at least thirty nations have weapons that can search for and destroy enemy targets all on their own. Paul Scharre, a leading expert in next-generation warfare, describes these and other high tech weapons systems—from Israel’s Harpy drone to the American submarine-hunting robot ship Sea Hunter—and examines the legal and ethical issues surrounding their use. “A smart primer to what’s to come in warfare” (Bruce Schneier), Army of None engages military history, global policy, and cutting-edge science to explore the implications of giving weapons the freedom to make life and death decisions. A former soldier himself, Scharre argues that we must embrace technology where it can make war more precise and humane, but when the choice is life or death, there is no replacement for the human heart.

For this reason, it is important for Levinas to indicate that the fraternal self is not trapped by fate or by any particular course of events. The fraternal self can aspire to a different future in which goodness is always possible.

Nelson Maldonado-Torres argues that European modernity has become inextricable from the experience of the warrior and conqueror. In Against War, he develops a powerful critique of modernity, and he offers a critical response combining ethics, political theory, and ideas rooted in Christian and Jewish thought. Maldonado-Torres focuses on the perspectives of those who inhabit the underside of western modernity, particularly Jewish, black, and Latin American theorists. He analyzes the works of the Jewish Lithuanian-French philosopher and religious thinker Emmanuel Levinas, the Martiniquean psychiatrist and political thinker Frantz Fanon, and the Catholic Argentinean-Mexican philosopher, historian, and theologian Enrique Dussel. Considering Levinas’s critique of French liberalism and Nazi racial politics, and the links between them, Maldonado-Torres identifies a “master morality” of dominion and control at the heart of western modernity. This master morality constitutes the center of a warring paradigm that inspires and legitimizes racial policies, imperial projects, and wars of invasion. Maldonado-Torres refines the description of modernity’s war paradigm and the Levinasian critique through Fanon’s phenomenology of the colonized and racial self and the politics of decolonization, which he reinterprets in light of the Levinasian conception of ethics. Drawing on Dussel’s genealogy of the modern imperial and warring self, Maldonado-Torres theorizes race as the naturalization of war’s death ethic. He offers decolonial ethics and politics as an antidote to modernity’s master morality and the paradigm of war. Against War advances the de-colonial turn, showing how theory and ethics cannot be conceived without politics, and how they all need to be oriented by the imperative of decolonization in the modern/colonial and postmodern world.

Helen Abbott examines the verse and prose poetry of Baudelaire and Mallarmé, together with their critical writings, to address how their attitudes towards the performance practice of poetry influenced the future of both poetry and music. Abbott considers the meaning of 'voice' in terms of rhetoric, the human body, exchange, and music, showing that Baudelaire and Mallarmé exploit the complexity and instability of voice to propose a new aesthetic situating poetry between conversation and music.
Taxpayers are already trapped. They should acknowledge this fate and write off their losses, rather than let their politicians continue along this path, which is merely dragging them ever deeper into the trap.

This book offers a critical assessment of the history of the euro, its crisis, and the rescue measures taken by the European Central Bank and the community of states. The euro induced huge capital flows from the northern to the southern countries of the Eurozone that triggered an inflationary credit bubble in the latter, deprived them of their competitiveness, and made them vulnerable to the financial crisis that spilled over from the US in 2007 and 2008. As private capital shied away from the southern countries, the ECB helped out by providing credit from the local money-printing presses. The ECB became heavily exposed to investment risks in the process, and subsequently had to be bailed out by intergovernmental rescue operations that provided replacement credit for the ECB credit, which itself had replaced the dwindling private credit. The interventions stretched the legal strictures stipulated by the Maastricht Treaty which, in the absence of a European federal state, had granted the ECB a very limited mandate. These interventions created a path dependency that effectively made parliaments vicarious agents of the ECB's Governing Council. This book describes what the author considers to be a dangerous political process that undermines both the market economy and democracy, without solving southern Europe's competitiveness problem. It argues that the Eurozone has to rethink its rules of conduct by limiting the role of the ECB, exiting the regime of soft budget constraints and writing off public and bank debt to help the crisis countries breathe again. At the same time, the Eurosystem should become more flexible by offering its members the option of exiting and re-entering the euro - something between the dollar and the Bretton Woods system - until it eventually turns into a federation with a strong political power centre and a uniform currency like the dollar.

It is the summer of 1346. England and Scotland are at war. Earl Raegenhere Auenel of Berwick and Earl Edmund Garrard of Northumberland want nothing more than to end the bloodshed between their lands, and Earl Garrard’s daughter, Lady Cristiana, is the lynchpin in their treaty. Cristiana has rejected sixteen suitors, terrified of marriage for one reason: death. Descended from a long line of women who died giving birth to their first and only children, Cristiana fears she will befall the same fate if she marries. The only thing that gives her any peace and sense of purpose is her work as a midwife, preventing other mothers’ untimely deaths. Now, forced by her father to give up midwifery and marry Earl Auenel, she must leave her home and the friends she loves to preserve her life, but fate has other plans. When she takes a wrong turn and accidentally ends up in Scotland, she meets the one man who can capture her heart. Will she give in to fate’s plans for marriage, or will she run again?

Fate’s Finger is a fictionalized memoir based on the author’s experience as a combat-inexperienced 2nd lieutenant sent to the ETO late in 1944 as a replacement platoon leader in an armored division. He arrived at the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge and fought with his division through three campaigns in Europe. Each chapter is introduced by a newspaper headline appropriate to the times, followed by a letter to or from a character in the book to folks back in the U.S. The events described in each chapter are based on reality, but dialogue, as well as personal names and character development are fictional. Graphics include photographs, news clippings, and maps. Authenticity, verisimilitude, and readibility were the author’s aims, and so the book is meant to be read as a military historical novel written by an old soldier attempting to preserve a micro-history of tank warfare in WW II. “….a ‘bottom-up’ account of tank warfare, unique in the annals of WW II, based on the cold, hard, terrifying facts of armored combat. The way the author develops the humanism of the characters, their language, their down-to-earth thoughts and emotions is truly remarkable.” Col. Arthur F. Pottle, WW II troop commander, 86th Cav Rcn Sqdn, 6th Armored Division, Third Army “Fate’s Finger is a great military micro-historical achievement, telling it like it was for the men on the line in WW II armored divisions, and it reeks with verisimilitude: the contemporaneous U.S. newspaper headlines, and the wonderful human insights in the letters to and from the folks back home. Absolutely authentic, a ‘been there, done that’. I couldn’t put it down!” Capt. Perry Swirsky, WW II tank company commander, 752nd Tank Bn. “Only a rare few WW II accounts have captured as this one has the turmoil that small groups of tankers and their machines endured to make the ‘big picture’ succeed. A must read for old – and new – tankers.” 1st Lt. George A. Campbell, WW II tank platoon leader, 8th Armored Division.
