Women and Economics – A Study of the Economic Relation Between Men and Women as a Factor in Social Evolution is a book written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman and published in 1898. It is considered by many to be her single greatest work, and as with much of Gilman’s writing, the book touched a few dominant themes: the transformation of marriage, the family, and the home, with her central argument: “the economic independence and specialization of women as essential to the improvement of marriage, motherhood, domestic industry, and racial improvement.”

地球上の人類の大量殺人と破壊に終わりない戦争、これを文明世界とは語れず“野蛮”の冠詞を付して“野蛮文明”と認識し、真の文明を紐解いてみることだ。<br /> 人類集団は猛獣集団以上に獰猛で、加えて強欲で醜い。貧困と奈落、 富裕と栄華、人類社会は貧民街と王侯貴族の城郭に象徴的に見る格差と差別は、現代へ形を変えながらも存続している。<br /> 人間による物理解明の世は開け進み、これだけをもって今を文明世界と錯誤し、文明と称せる人間社会に不可欠である精神面の向上に価値づけせず、物質面に価値判断を傾斜して欲望全開で進み、人間性は放擲されたかのように退歩の一途、力ある者が欲望を醜く剥き出して他を奪い、争いに拡げては残虐な大量殺戮破壊武器の使用を常套として、ひたすら野蛮の極限に向い、行き着く先は無機物も存在が叶わない暗黒無限の死の地球物体と言うところではなかろうか。

Queste pagine raccontano le storie di 60 vittime innocenti della mafia. Persone morte per aver pestato i piedi ad un boss, difeso il bene comune, visto qualcosa di troppo, chiesto diritti e non favori. O per essersi trovate nel posto sbagliato nel momento meno opportuno. Improvvisamente hanno conosciuto la mafia e non hanno avuto scampo: un bagliore, un boato e sono caduti in un lago di sangue. Forse al posto nostro. O più semplicemente morti perché noi non siamo stati troppo vivi

"Je suis souvent face à des individus, qu'ils soient concerné-es personnellement ou non par la présente question, qui ont entendu tellement de choses sur le sujet, et leurs contraires, qu'ils/elles veulent avoir une idée à la fois synthétique et globale de cette question, du point de vue de la tradition dite arabo-musulmane.<br />Je me propose ainsi de récapituler ici les sources scripturaires islamiques ayant trait à la question de la diversité des natures, des genres, des sexualités humaines. Ainsi, dans une démarche certes plus engagée politiquement que celle de la plupart des intellectuel-les de notre temps, je pourrai par la même occasion préciser certaines notions théologiques qui peuvent paraître hermétiques pour les non initié-es".<br /><br />Ludovic-Mohamed Zahed, docteur en sciences sociales et humaines (Théologie, Psychologie, Anthropologie) et imam homosexuel, co-fondateur de la première mosquée inclusive d'Europe, à Paris (2012), directeur du Cabinet de conseil CALEM et chercheur en neuropsychologie (APHP).

When Hope Chest was created it solved one of the biggest problems we never knew we had. In this book, I will show you how to use Hope Chest and give you actionable strategies for finding ancestors that need temple work. I guarantee that you’ll be able to find ancestors that you didn’t even know existed, reserve their temple ordinances and then do the work for them. It used to take hours and thousands of clicks to be able to find even a fraction of the same results that Hope Chest allows us to do while we sleep. I remember teaching a class where we were showing the students how to download their entire family tree database and then use other programs to be able to search through it, even with this method, if you don't factor in the downloading process, it was still much less user-friendly, and still didn't come up with the same quality results that Hope Chest finds. The first few chapters of this book will focus on how to use Hope Chest and what options are available. After that, we’ll look at different strategies for using it and some basic troubleshooting if the program is not working.

<P>Originally published in the UK in 1966, this was the first biography of Lenin which tied together extensive material unearthed in WWII, and it illuminates the complex personality and explains the riddle of Lenin's seemingly impossible rise to power. Using primary sources such as previously inacessible documents from the German, Austrian and Japanese foreign offices, and the vast holdings of the Hoover Institution, the book cuts through many comtemporaneous myths in Communist sources. The volume is a landmark in the study of the birth of Soviet Communism and its revolutionary enterprise. </P>
Black Collegians’ Experiences in US Northern Private Colleges: ...

<p>This book is a narrative study of the lives and experiences of sixty-eight Black collegians in a set of northern private colleges in the Midwest between 1945 and 1965. Through oral histories and archival material, this text documents and reflects on their experiences in the racially isolated, northern, rural towns in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Western Pennsylvania. This history illuminates both the empowerment of these collegians and the persistent challenges of enacting institutional values in the face of resistance from both outside and within. Stewart seeks to understand the nature of progress toward pluralistic diversity in college environments characterized by the paradox of racial homogeneity and interracial engagement. In this way, the complex interplay of social movements, institutional context, individual identities, and the experiences of marginalized students in postsecondary education are more effectively demonstrated. </p>
