Book Summary:

This is the fourth volume of a five-book series which offers a forward-looking, broad-based course in human geography. The building blocks of a `geographical imagination' are presented through some of the principal forces that are shaping the world as it approaches the twenty-first century.Each book develops different aspects of the geographical imagination, using a mixture of text and readings, through which the authors teach what it is to think geographically. the issues that are explored are at the forefront of global and local relations. This volume examines the challenges posed by globalization to the meanings we currently give to place and to culture, and questions the nature of the rlationship between them.Issues of identity - cultural, personal, and of place - and the contest over the meanings of places and cultures are set in the context of the changing geography of social power. Beginning with international migration, the book establishes a centuries-old context of movement, settlement, andhybridity within which current debates must be set. It raises issues of the rights of movement of both capital and of people, of the ways in which place and culture are imagined and given meaning, and of the power struggles over the definitions of place and culture. It examines the importance andthe nature of the identities we confer on, and draw from, place, and the importance of space and place in the constitution of `insiders' and `outsiders'. The book as a whole is an argument for rethinking these issues and recognising their importance to our geographical imagination.

Book Summary:

We live in a complex world order built with a multitude of competing sovereign nations - countries with varying economic, political and military power - a world structured by international organizations which sometimes work but at other times are bypassed. But the dominant status of the United States is under threat and the institutions that were created more than 50 years ago, are beginning to lose their significance in certain circumstances and redefining their purpose and structure in others. In this new dynamic, India and China are often seen as the next superpowers, with a shift of global influence to Asia and the East. As the economies of Indian and China continue to grow rapidly enhancing the power of these countries, they must now take on an active role in the restructuring of international institutions and the constitution of a new world order. This is far from easy and there are obstacles to overcome, including opposition from entrenched interests, questions about the confidence and ability of these nations to create such strategies, and the sustainability of their economic growth engines which are the driving forces of their influence. A peaceful and orderly restructuring of global Institutions and their objectives, as well as models of governance and the rebalance of world power, should be the strategic objectives of India's foreign policy. This book attempts to collate and analyze the current structure of the world as well as the major events of the past 60 years, primarily through the United Nations as a global institution; the UN Security Council and collective security; international monetary and financial structure through the IMF and World Bank; trade and commerce through the GATT and WTO; and finally the impact of global warming and the international response to it. It also indicates possible directions and options for India in exerting greater influence in the world through these global institutions.

Book Summary:

Katrenia Sneed Logan is a native of Roanoke Rapids, NC. She is the daughter of the late Roy and Virginia Sneed-the fourteenth of their fifteen children. At age twenty-eight, Katrenia began preaching the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The year was 1981. Since that time, she has been in demand as an inspirational conference speaker, evangelist, Bible teacher and workshop facilitator. Katrenia has written several inspirational articles which were published in Christian magazines in the United States and abroad, but A Woman's Place In A Man's World is her first book. With the scholarly and insightful assistance of a lot of good men and women, she takes us on a spiritual quest from Genesis to Revelation-traveling through time and history-in search of the "elusive territory" labeled in 19 th Century America as "the Appropriate Sphere of Woman," a.k.a. "a woman's place." The author invites you to join her on this quest. "Put on your 'thinking cap' and consider what is said, when it was said, why it was said, and more importantly, who said it. As Paul said to Timothy, 'Consider what I say, and the Lord give you understanding.' That's the goal: understanding the Truth. For it is the Truth that sets us free to become all that God called us to be."

Book Summary:

Imagine if you could hope for the best, even after the worst. Imagine if your past could become your superpower. Imagine if you could be happy, regardless. When life is hard, The World is a Nice Place offers a new way of thinking. We all have the power to fall in love with our lives—even when it’s a series of disasters. As an international journalist, Amy Molloy spent over a decade interviewing amazing people who’ve survived incredible challenges—from terrorism attacks, to natural disasters, loss, grief, breakups, breakdowns and the everyday events that can cause our lives to freeze. As a "serial survivor" herself, Amy wanted to discover the secret formula that allows some people to move forward—joyfully—after difficulty, without letting it become their entire identity. In The World is a Nice Place she shares her story. A child with obsessive compulsive tendencies, who became a teenager with an eating disorder and a 23-year-old widow. Throw in a family history of depression, a father paralyzed from cancer, and a tendency to have spiritual premonitions and it’s a recipe for a messed-up adult. Or, is it? This insightful and searingly honest book, the product of ten years’ research, combines personal anecdotes with practical tools to help readers explore their memories, pinpoint their triggers and use their past to empower, inspire and guide them. Don’t let the worst day of your life be your greatest achievement. Imagine if you could hope for the best, even after the worst. Imagine if your past could become your superpower.

Book Summary:

This study looks at the effects of "global" phenomena -- trans-Saharan trade, European expansion, the rise of an Atlantic plantation complex, industrialization, imperialism, colonialism, world wars, growth of a world market, political independence and economic dependence -- on the way of life in Niumi, a small area at the mouth of the Gambia river in West Africa (now called The Gambia), over the last six-seven hundred years. Written in clear, accessible prose, and drawing on archival and oral traditions, the work considers global developments from a local/regional perspective.

Book Summary:

The fourteenth semi-annual Munk Debate, which will be held in Toronto on November 5, 2014, pits Bret Stephens and Robert Kagan against Fareed Zakaria and Anne-Marie Slaughter to debate the legacy of President Obama. From Ukraine to the Middle East to China, the United States is redefining its role in international affairs. Alliance building, public diplomacy, and eschewing traditional warfare in favour of the focused use of hard power such as drones and special forces are all hallmarks of the so-called Obama Doctrine. Is this a farsighted foreign policy for the United States and the world in the twenty-first century — one that acknowledges and embraces the increasing diffusion of power among states and non-state actors? Or, is an America “leading from behind” a boon for the nations and blocs who want to roll back economic globalization, international law, and the spread of democracy and human rights? In this edition of the Munk Debates, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Bret Stephens and famed historian and foreign policy commentator Robert Kagan square off against CNN’s Fareed Zakaria and noted academic and political commentator Anne-Marie Slaughter to debate the legacy of President Obama. With ISIS looking to reshape the Middle East, Russia increasingly at odds with the rest of the West, and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at a standstill, the Munk Debate on Foreign Policy asks: Has Obama’s foreign policy taken the U.S. in the right direction?
