Nikolay Starikov Rouble Nationalization: The Way to Russia's Freedom

Nikolay Starikov Rouble Nationalization: The Way to Russia's Freedom

Unrestrained issuing of money backed by nothing has been the dream of bankers and moneylenders for centuries. This is the shortest way to world domination. Today this dream has become reality. All the world's money stocks are tied to the dollar, which can be issued without restrictions. As a result of defeat in the Cold War Russia was deprived of a significant part of its sovereignty. The Russian rouble does not be­long to the people anymore. The only way out of the dead end is to change the current form of the system of money-issuing.By reading this book you will find out the answers to the following questions: What are the gold and currency reserves of Russia and why do they not belong to the Rus­sian Government? Who was Stalin's 'Chubais' and how did the leader of the USSR treat him? How are the deaths of American presidents connected to various types of identical American dollars? How did Benito Mussolini cooperate with the British intelligence service and what did it lead to? Why did the USSR refuse to enter the IMF and sign the Bretton Woods agreement? Who was knighted upon Stalin's death and why? What constitution did Sakharov offer to his country?The story of the Bank of England, the reasons for Joseph Stalin's death, unknown snipers on the rooftops of Moscow in October 1993, the Central Bank of Russia inde­pendent from Russia - these are parts of one thing; the roots of one tree.

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir Of A Family And Culture In Crisis

Hillbilly Elegy: A Memoir Of A Family And Culture In Crisis

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis - that of white working-class Americans. The decline of this group, a demographic of our country that has been slowly disintegrating over forty years, has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck. The Vance family story begins hopefully in post-war America. J. D.’s grandparents were "dirt poor and in love", and moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. They raised a middle-class family, and eventually their grandchild (the author) would graduate from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of their success in achieving generational upward mobility. But as the family saga of Hillbilly Elegy plays out, we learn that this is only the short, superficial version. Vance’s grandparents, aunt, uncle, sister, and, most of all, his mother, struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, and were never able to fully escape the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty, and trauma so characteristic of their part of America. Vance piercingly shows how he himself still carries around the demons of their chaotic family history. A deeply moving memoir with its share of humour and vividly colourful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.

Kinfolk Volume 17

Kinfolk Volume 17

KINFOLK VOLUME 17 is The Family Issue, exploring the different meanings of the word family and the people who make us who we are. KINFOLK is the place to discover new things to cook, make and do. The growing international community is generous when it comes to sharing ideas for small gatherings, ways to take good care of friends and family and living a grounded, balanced lifestyle that is about connecting and making conversation. In KINFOLK VOLUME 17: THE FAMILY ISSUE, the contributors explore different meanings of the word 'family' and the people who make us who we are. They explore family roots in all sorts of forms, from culinary to genealogical and emotional. Stories will seek to define the people we consider our kin, whether that means blood relatives or the folks we've adopted into our lives. The contributors will also look at how personal foundations are formed and how we can be conscious of our actions and the way they may influence someone else's future. They will break new ground and create something unexpected, veering away from the usual stories on the memories of our grandmothers' kitchens and avoiding the tired cliches of stereotyping the various types of 'contemporary families'. Instead, they seek to understand what family means in the here and now, not just what it looks like. They will undoubtedly find that interpretations of family can spread much further than the branches of the family tree.

The Book of Aron

The Book of Aron

The acclaimed National Book Award finalist-"one of the United States' finest writers," according to Joshua Ferris, "full of wit, humanity, and fearless curiosity"-now gives us a novel that will join the short list of classics about children caught up in the Holocaust. Aron, the narrator, is an engaging if peculiar and unhappy young boy whose family is driven by the German onslaught from the Polish countryside into Warsaw and slowly battered by deprivation, disease, and persecution. He and a handful of boys and girls risk their lives by scuttling around the ghetto to smuggle and trade contraband through the quarantine walls in hopes of keeping their fathers, mothers, brothers, and sisters alive, hunted all the while by blackmailers and by Jewish, Polish, and German police, not to mention the Gestapo. When his family is finally stripped away from him, Aron is rescued by Janusz Korczak, a doctor renowned throughout prewar Europe as an advocate of children's rights who, once the Nazis swept in, was put in charge of the Warsaw orphanage. Treblinka awaits them all, but does Aron manage to escape-as his mentor suspected he could-to spread word about the atrocities? Jim Shepard has masterfully made this child's-eye view of the darkest history mesmerizing, sometimes comic despite all odds, truly heartbreaking, and even inspiring. Anyone who hears Aron's voice will remember it forever.

ALLY

ALLY

Michael Oren served as Israel's ambassador to the United States from 2009-2013, a transformative period for America and a time of violent revolutions throughout the Middle East. The Iranian nuclear program, the Middle Eastern peace process, and other complex bilateral issues subjected their relationship to enormous strains. Hundreds of thousands of the region's people were killed, and the lives of millions more threatened. The very future of the US-Israel alliance has been called into question by commentators in both countries. On more than one occasion, the friendship's very fabric seems near to unraveling. This is the story of that alliance and of its divides, as experienced by one who treasures his American identity while proudly serving the State of Israel. In a world in which presidents and prime ministers can chat or shout at each other by videophone, without any need for go-betweens, the role of an ambassador seems increasingly nebulous. But ambassadors represent not only leaders but peoples and, in the case of Americans and Israelis, peoples linked at multiple levels. A quintessentially American story of a young person who refused to relinquish a dream, irrespective of the obstacles, and an inherently Israeli story about assuming onerous responsibilities. It is a record, a chronical, and a confession. And it is a story about love, about someone fortunate enough to love two countries and to represent one to the other. But, above all, this memoir is a testament to an alliance that was and will remain vital for Americans, Israelis, and the world.

Time Bandit: Two Brothers, the Bering Sea, and One of the World's Deadliest Jobs

Every Alaskan king crab season, brothers Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand risk their lives and seek their fortunes upon the treacherous waters of the Bering Sea. Sons of a hard-bitten, highly successful fisherman, and born with brine in their blood, the Hillstrand boys couldn't imagine a life without a swaying deck underfoot and a harvest of mighty king crabs waiting to be pulled from the ocean floor. In pursuit of their daily catch, the brothers brave ice floes and heaving waves sixty feet high, the perils of thousand-pound steel traps thrown about by the punishing wind, and the constant menace of the open, hungry water - epitomized in the chorus of a haunting sailors' sing-along: "Many brave hearts are asleep in the deep, so beware, beware." By turns raucous and reflective, exhilarating and anguished, enthralling, suspenseful, and wise, Time Bandit chronicles a larger-than-life love affair as old as civilization itself - a love affair between striving, willful man and inscrutable, enduring nature.

Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free

Deep Down Dark: The Untold Stories of 33 Men Buried in a Chilean Mine, and the Miracle That Set Them Free

When the San Jose mine collapsed outside of Copiapo, Chile, in August 2010, it trapped thirty-three miners beneath thousands of feet of rock for a record-breaking sixty-nine days. The entire world watched what transpired above-ground during the grueling and protracted rescue, but the saga of the miners' experiences below the Earth's surface - and the lives that led them there - has never been heard until now. For Deep Down Dark, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Hector Tobar received exclusive access to the miners and their tales. These thirty-three men came to think of the mine, a cavern inflicting constant and thundering aural torment, as a kind of coffin, and as a church where they sought redemption through prayer. Even while still buried, they all agreed that if by some miracle any of them escaped alive, they would share their story only collectively. Hector Tobar was the person they chose to hear, and now to tell, that story. The result is a masterwork or narrative journalism - a riveting, at times shocking, emotionally textured account of a singular human event. Deep Down Dark brings to haunting, tactile life the experience of being imprisoned inside a mountain of stone, the horror of being slowly consumed by hunger, and the spiritual and mystical elements that surrounded working in such a dangerous place. In its stirring final chapters, it captures the profound way in which the lives of everyone involved in the disaster were forever changed.

The Bet: Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and Our Gamble over Earth’s Future Уцененный товар (№2)

The Bet: Paul Ehrlich, Julian Simon, and Our Gamble over Earth’s Future Уцененный товар (№2)

In 1980, the iconoclastic economist Julian Simon challenged celebrity biologist Paul Ehrlich to a bet. Their wager on the future prices of five metals captured the public's imagination as a test of coming prosperity or doom. Ehrlich, author of the landmark book THE POPULATION BOMB, predicted that rising populations would cause overconsumption, resource scarcity and famine - with apocalyptic consequences for humanity. Simon optimistically countered that human welfare would flourish thanks to flexible markets, technological change, and our collective ingenuity. Simon and Ehrlich's debate reflected a deepening national conflict over the future of the planet. THE BET: PAUL EHRLICH, JULIAN SIMON, AND OUR GAMBLE OVER EARTH'S FUTURE weaves the two men's lives and ideas together with the era's partisan political clashes over the environment and the role of government. In a lively narrative leading from the dawning environmentalism of the 1960s through the pivotal presidential contest between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan and on into the 1990s, Paul Sabin shows how the fight between Ehrlich and Simon - between environmental fears and free-market confidence - helped create the gulf separating environmentalists and their critics today. Drawing insights from both sides, Sabin argues for using social values, rather than economic or biological absolutes, to guide society's crucial choices relating to climate change, the planet's health, and our own.

The Fall of the House of Fifa

The Fall of the House of Fifa

Fifa was founded in 1904 to unite the football-playing world, its first congress stating that 'no person should be allowed to arrange matches for personal profit'. A little over a century later, a judge in a Brooklyn courtroom called Fifa a 'Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organisation (RIC O) enterprise' - a term originally coined for the mafia. As dazzling World Cups captivated billions around the world Fifa became a commercial magnet, money pouring into its coffers. Its earnest foundations began to crumble as those entrusted with the sport wanted their share. For forty years Joao Havelange and then Sepp Blatter presided over a Fifa now plagued with scandal - dawn raids, FBI investigations, allegations of money laundering, industrialscale bribery, racketeering, tax evasion, vote-buying and theft that now came to define the organisation whose purpose is to foster international cooperation and nurture the spirit of this simple, beautiful game. David Conn, football's most respected investigative journalist, chronicles the extraordinary history and staggering scale of corruption, paints revealing portraits of the men at the centre of Fifa - the power brokers, the indicted, the legends like Franz Beckenbauer and Michel Platini - and puts the allegations to Blatter himself in an extended interview. The Fall of the House of Fifa is the definitive story of Fifa's rise and the most spectacular fall sport has ever seen.
