  2. American Default: The Untold Story of FDR, the Supreme Court, and the Battle over Gold [Audiobook] by Sebastian Edwards English | July 18th, 2018 | ASIN: B07F7MRPYH | [email protected] kbps | 9 hrs 1 min | 248.37 MB Narrator: Timothy Andrés Pabon The American economy is strong in large part because nobody believes that America would ever default on its debt. Yet in 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt did just that, when in a bid to pull the country out of depression, he depreciated the US dollar in relation to gold, effectively annulling all debt contracts. American Default is the story of this forgotten chapter in America's history. Sebastian Edwards provides a compelling account of the economic and legal drama that embroiled a nation already reeling from global financial collapse. It began on April 5, 1933, when FDR ordered Americans to sell all their gold holdings to the government. This was followed by the abandonment of the gold standard, the unilateral and retroactive rewriting of contracts, and the devaluation of the dollar. Anyone who held public and private debt suddenly saw its value reduced by nearly half, and debtors - including the US government - suddenly owed their creditors far less. Revaluing the dollar imposed a hefty loss on investors and savers, many of them middle-class American families. The banks fought back, and a bitter battle for gold ensued. In early 1935, the case went to the Supreme Court. Edwards describes FDR's rancorous clashes with conservative Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes, a confrontation that threatened to finish the New Deal for good - and that led to FDR's attempt to pack the court in 1937. At a time when several major economies never approached the brink of default or devaluing or recalling currencies, American Default is a timely account of a little-known yet drastic experiment with these policies, the inevitable backlash, and the ultimate result. > http://nitroflare.com/view/FD89E267F14609F/American_Default_(Audiobook).rar > https://rapidgator.net/file/97dff41343cf32592e51b2de66c4cb2b/American_Default_(Audiobook).rar.html
  3. Incredible Victory: The Battle of Midway [Audiobook] by Walter Lord English | July 18th, 2018 | ASIN: B07F7B6SVG, ISBN: 1977363903 | [email protected] kbps | 12 hrs 33 mins | 345.26 MB Narrator: Norman Dietz The New York Times Best-seller: Outgunned and outmanned on the Pacific Ocean, a small American fleet defied the odds and turned the tide of World War II. On the morning of June 4, 1942, doom sailed on Midway. Hoping to put itself within striking distance of Hawaii and California, the Japanese navy planned an ambush that would obliterate the remnants of the American Pacific fleet. On paper, the Americans had no chance of winning. They had fewer ships, slower fighters, and almost no battle experience. But because their codebreakers knew what was coming, the American navy was able to prepare an ambush of its own. Over two days of savage battle, American sailors and pilots broke the spine of the Japanese war machine. The United States prevailed against momentous odds; never again did Japan advance. In stunning detail, Walter Lord, the number one New York Times best-selling author of Day of Infamy and A Night to Remember, tells the story of one of the greatest upsets in naval history. > http://nitroflare.com/view/32A475B6667DCED/Incredible_Victory_(Audiobook).rar > https://rapidgator.net/file/4cccb5da57429cce03c157af19724f34/Incredible_Victory_(Audiobook).rar.html

  9. Emerging Markets Megatrends Kindle Edition by Rajiv Biswas English | 2018 | ISBN: 3319781227 | 261 Pages | PDF | 4.50 MB This book provides an assessment of the megatrends that are reshaping the emerging markets landscape. With developing countries already accounting for 40% of world GDP, emerging markets consumption growth will be an increasingly important growth engine for the world economy over the next two decades. However, emerging markets in many parts of Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America are still facing tremendous economic challenges such as poverty, inequality, weak governance and inadequate infrastructure. The developed nations are no longer insulated from the economic shockwaves impacting developing countries, as globalisation and economic integration have also amplified the transmission effects to the West through immigration flows, cross-border crime and the proliferation of international terrorism. > http://nitroflare.com/view/19AA24061C0E611/3319781227.pdf > https://rapidgator.net/file/fc6d55e69de442caa7c4d3ba7df6d16b/3319781227.pdf.html
  10. OK, Mr. Field: A Novel by Katharine Kilalea English | July 17, 2018 | ISBN: 0525573631 | EPUB | 224 pages | 1.3 MB A mesmerizing debut novel about a concert pianist who fears he is losing his mind Mr. Field wants a new life, a life cleansed of the old one's disappointments. A concert pianist on the London scene, his career is upended when the train he is travelling on crashes into the wall at the end of a tunnel. The accident splinters his left wrist, jeopardizing his musical ambitions. On a whim, he uses his compensation pay-out to buy a house he has seen only once in a newspaper photograph, a replica of Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye on a stretch of coast outside Cape Town. Together with his wife, Mim, Mr. Field sets out in the hope that the house will make him happier, or at least less unhappy. But as time passes, the house-which Le Corbusier designed as "a machine for living"-begins to have a disturbing effect on Mr. Field. Its narrow windows educate him in the pleasures of frustrated desire. Its sequence of spaces, which seem to lead toward and away from their destinations at once, mirror his sense of being increasingly cut off from the world and from other people. When his wife inexplicably leaves him, Mr. Field can barely summon the will to search for her. Alone in the decaying house, he finds himself unglued from reality and possessed by a longing for a perverse kind of intimacy. OK, Mr. Field is a strange and beguiling novel that dwells in the silences between words, in the gaps in conversation, and in the unbridgeable distance between any two people. Through her restless intelligence and precise, musical prose, Katharine Kilalea confidently guides us into new fictional territory. > http://nitroflare.com/view/B734D0E81155433/OK_Mr._Field.epub > https://rapidgator.net/file/afb3cfcbfe1e24c8f05a42cc7da0b311/OK_Mr._Field.epub.html
  11. Infinite Resignation: On Pessimism by Eugene Thacker English | July 19th, 2018 | ISBN: 1912248190 | 397 Pages | EPUB | 0.26 MB The author of the contemporary classic, In the Dust of This Planet, is back with another raw and unsettling look at the human condition. Comprised of aphorisms, fragments, and observations both philosophical and personal, Thacker's new book traces the contours of pessimism, caught as it often is between a philosophical position and a bad attitude. Reflecting on the universe's "looming abyss of indifference," Thacker explores the pessimism of a range of philosophers, from the well-known (Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Camus), to the lesser-known (E.M. Cioran, Lev Shestov, Miguel de Unamuno). Readers will find food for thought in Thacker's handling of a range of themes in Christianity and Buddhism, as well as his engagement with literary figures (from Dostoevsky to Thomas Bernhard, Osamu Dazai, and Fernando Pessoa), whose pessimism about the world both inspires and depresses Thacker. By turns melancholic, misanthropic, and darkly funny, ("Birth is a metaphysical injury - healing takes time - the span of one's life"), many will find Infinite Resignation a welcome antidote to the exuberant imbecility of our times. > http://nitroflare.com/view/CAD7D21AF8BCBED/Infinite_Resignation_-_Eugene_Thacker.epub > https://rapidgator.net/file/72a13e011be6525cfd0521f362752ac8/Infinite_Resignation_-_Eugene_Thacker.epub.html
  12. Life: A Critical User's Manual by Didier Fassin English | July 16, 2018 | ISBN: 1509526641, 150952665X | EPUB | 150 pages | 0.3 MB How can we think of life in its dual expression, matter and experience, the living and the lived? Philosophers and, more recently, social scientists have offered multiple answers to this question, often privileging one expression or the other - the biological or the biographical. But is it possible to conceive of them together and thus reconcile naturalist and humanist approaches? Using research conducted on three continents and engaging in critical dialogue with Wittgenstein, Benjamin, and Foucault, Didier Fassin attempts to do so by developing three concepts: forms of life, ethics of life, and politics of life. In the conditions of refugees and asylum seekers, in the light of mortality statistics and death benefits, and via a genealogical and ethnographical inquiry, the moral economy of life reveals troubling tensions in the way contemporary societies treat human beings. Once the pieces of this anthropological composition are assembled, like in Georges Perec's jigsaw puzzle, an image appears: that of unequal lives. > http://nitroflare.com/view/61EC7421223A7CD/Life_A_Critical_Users_Manual.epub > https://rapidgator.net/file/ac97f89edf676c91e66012064a5a4c83/Life_A_Critical_Users_Manual.epub.html
  13. Land of Smoke (Pushkin Collection) by Sara Gallardo, translated by Jessica Sequeira English | July 10, 2018 | ISBN: 1782274030 | EPUB | 224 pages | 1 MB Dazzling, hallucinatory stories by Sara Gallardo, a rediscovered Argentinian contemporary of García Márquez An old man wakes up one morning to find that his beloved garden, the envy of all his neighbours, is floating away - with him on board; a bored young woman decides to start a new, double life in Buenos Aires - with the useful prop of a spare head she keeps in her closet; a meek German missionary leaves Paraguay for the Pampas, completely unprepared for what he will encounter there at night. Land of Smoke is the first English translation of this recently rediscovered major Argentinian writer. Dazzling and hallucinatory, the stories collected here recall the masters of magical realism - but with Gallardo's distinctive, idiosyncratic slant. Sara Gallardo was a celebrated and prize-winning Argentinian writer, born in Buenos Aires in 1931. Her first book was published in 1958, and by the time she died in 1988, she had published novels, short stories, children's books, and essays. Written after the death of her second husband, Land of Smoke is the first of her books to be translated into English. > http://nitroflare.com/view/BBE826387DB7239/Land_of_Smoke.epub > https://rapidgator.net/file/288707789ff0df0ec534114a177d2b3d/Land_of_Smoke.epub.html

  15. Post-Fascist Japan: Political Culture in Kamakura after the Second World War (SOAS Studies in Modern and Contemporary Japan) by Laura Hein English | February 22, 2018 | ISBN: 1350025801 | PDF | 272 pages | 4.3 MB In late 1945 local Japanese turned their energies toward creating new behaviors and institutions that would give young people better skills to combat repression at home and coercion abroad. They rapidly transformed their political culture-policies, institutions, and public opinion-to create a more equitable, democratic and peaceful society. Post-Fascist Japan explores this phenomenon, focusing on a group of highly educated Japanese based in the city of Kamakura, where the new political culture was particularly visible. The book argues that these leftist elites, many of whom had been seen as 'the enemy' during the war, saw the problem as one of fascism, an ideology that had succeeded because it had addressed real problems. They turned their efforts to overtly political-legal systems but also to ostensibly non-political and community institutions such as universities, art museums, local tourism, and environmental policies, aiming not only for reconciliation over the past but also to reduce the anxieties that had drawn so many towards fascism. By focusing on people who had an outsized influence on Japan's political culture, Hein's study is local, national, and transnational. She grounds her discussion using specific personalities, showing their ideas about 'post-fascism', how they implemented them and how they interacted with the American occupiers. > http://nitroflare.com/view/FD2E218D11CC3F0/Post-Fascist_Japan.pdf > https://rapidgator.net/file/86dd4a2828a646964a6eff379e739acc/Post-Fascist_Japan.pdf.html
