Картина мира, представленная Маргарет Тэтчер, ее видение сегодняшних и завтрашних проблем могут вызвать целую гамму чувств: от полного одобрения до бурного протеста, за исключением одного — равнодушия. «Искусство управления государством» — глубокий научный труд, написанный общественным деятелем мирового значения.

В книге можно выделить четыре больших блока вопросов. Во-первых, это подведение итогов ушедшей эпохи — размышления над уроками холодной войны, прошлой и нынешней ролью США.

Во-вторых, оценка путей развития России, Китая, Индии и стран Дальнего и Ближнего Востока. В-третьих, угрозы, которые представляют для мира нестабильность на Балканах, государства-изгои, исламский экстремизм и международный терроризм, а также стратегии, позволяющие противостоять им.

И, наконец, — процесс интеграции в Европе, таящий в себе опасность незаметного расширения власти международных институтов в ущерб независимости национальных государств.Картина мира, представленная Маргарет Тэтчер, ее видение сегодняшних и завтрашних проблем могут вызвать целую гамму чувств: от полного одобрения до бурного протеста, за исключением одного — равнодушия.

Систему взглядов, которые представлены и последовательно отстаиваются в книге, сама Маргарет Тэтчер лаконично называет «консерватизм».Книга рассчитана на широкую аудиторию.

Size Zero: My Life as a Disappearing Model

-Форматы: None

A memoir of a brief career as a top model – and the brutally honest account of what goes on behind the scenes in a fascinating, closed industry.Scouted in the street when she is 17, Victoire Dauxerre’s story started like a teenager’s dream: within months she was on the catwalks of New York’s major fashion shows, and part of the most select circle of in-demand supermodels in the world.

But when fashion executives and photographers began to pressure her about her weight, forcing her to become ever thinner, Victoire’s fantasy came at a cost. Food was now her enemy, and soon, living on only three apples a day and Diet Coke galore, Victoire became anorexic.

An unflinching, painful expose of the uglier face of fashion, her testimony is a shocking example of how our culture’s.

Titian: His Life and the Golden Age of Venice

-Форматы: None

Devoted father and loyal friend, Titian was notorious for disregarding authority and was an international celebrity by his late fifties. He was famously difficult but his stubbornness and horrendous timekeeping did nothing to deter his patrons who included the Hapsburgs, the Pope and his family and Charles V.

During his career, which spanned more than seventy years, Titian painted around five or six hundred pictures of which less than half survive. His work has been studied by generations of great artists from Rubens to Manet and he is often seen as having artistically transcended his own time.

Sheila Hale not only examines his life, both personal and professional, but how his art affected his contemporaries and how it influences artists today. She also examines Venice in its context of a.

When a spiritual awakening in his last year of high school wrenches Dodd out of his rebellious party days, he embarks on a quest for God. He exchanges pot smoking for worship dancing, gives up MTV for Christian pop, and enrolls at a Christian university.

Soon, however, he finds himself ill at ease with the other Christians around him and with the.

Exactly: How Precision Engineers Created the Modern World

-Форматы: None

SHORTLISTED FOR THE ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE 2018 Bestselling author Simon Winchester writes a magnificent history of the pioneering engineers who developed precision machinery to allow us to see as far as the moon and as close as the Higgs boson. Precision is the key to everything.

It is an integral, unchallenged and essential component of our modern social, mercantile, scientific, mechanical and intellectual landscapes. The items we value in our daily lives – a camera, phone, computer, bicycle, car, a dishwasher perhaps – all sport components that fit together with precision and operate with near perfection.

We also assume that the more precise a device the better it is. And yet whilst we live lives peppered and larded with precision, we are not, when we come to think.

August, 1755. Newcastle, on the north bank of the Tyne.

In the fields, men and women are getting the harvest in. Sunlight, or rain.

Scudding clouds and backbreaking labour. Three hundred feet underground, young Charles Hutton is at the coalface.

Cramped, dust-choked, wielding a five-pound pick by candlelight. Eighteen years old, he’s been down the pits on and off for more than a decade, and now it looks like a life sentence.

No unusual story, although Charles is a clever lad – gifted at maths and languages – and for a time he hoped for a different life. Many hoped.

Charles Hutton, astonishingly, would actually live the life he dreamed of. Twenty years later you’d have found him in Slaughter’s coffee house in London, eating a few oysters with the President of the Royal Society.

Kui Mihhail Gorbatšov sai 1985. aastal Nõukogude Liidu kommunistliku partei keskkomitee peasekretäriks ja seega kogu riigi tegelikuks juhiks, oli NSV Liit üks maailma kahest üliriigist.

1989. aastaks olid tema liberaalne uutmis- ja avalikustamispoliitika Nõukogude riiki tundmatuseni muutnud ja toonud talle radikaalseid vaenlasi nii vasakult kui ka paremalt.

William Taubmani mahukas biograafia maalib põhjaliku pildi, kuidas tagasihoidlikku päritolu maapoisist sai nõukogude süsteemi hauakaevaja, kuidas ta tõusis järk-järgult selle süsteemi tippu, kuidas ta leidis ühise keele ülikonservatiivse USA presidendi Reaganiga ja kuidas ta võimaldas nii NSV Liidul laguneda kui ka selle Ida-Euroopa satelliitidel oma teed minna, selle takistamiseks jõudu kasutamata.

Bloomberg by Bloomberg, Revised and Updated

-Форматы: None

Michael Bloomberg rose from middle-class Medford, Massachusetts to become a pioneer of the computer age, mayor of New York, one of the world\'s most generous philanthropists, and one of America\'s most respected—and fearless—voices on gun violence, climate change, public health, and other issues. And it all happened after he got fired at the age of 39.

This is his story, told in his own words and in his own candid style. After working his way through college and graduating from Harvard Business School, Bloomberg landed on the bottom rung of a Wall Street firm and worked his way up to partner.

But in 1981, he was forced out of the firm. With an idea for computerizing financial data, Bloomberg started his own company.

And, since personal computers barely existed, he built his own.

Napoleon: The Man Behind the Myth

Napoleon: The Man Behind the Myth

-Форматы: None

‘Napoleon is an out-and-out masterpiece and a joy to read’ Sir Antony Beevor, author of StalingradA landmark new biography that presents the man behind the many myths. The first writer in English to go back to the original European sources, Adam Zamoyski’s portrait of Napoleon is historical biography at its finest.

Napoleon inspires passionately held and often conflicting visions. Was he a god-like genius, Romantic avatar, megalomaniac monster, compulsive warmonger or just a nasty little dictator?While he displayed elements of these traits at certain times, Napoleon was none of these things.

He was a man and, as Adam Zamoyski presents him in this landmark biography, a rather ordinary one at that. He exhibited some extraordinary qualities during some phases of his life but it is hard.

The Accidental Zillionaire. Demystifying Paul Allen

-Форматы: None

The first in-depth look at one of the world\'s richest-and most secretive-businessmen Though his wealth is certainly no secret, the world\'s fourth richest man remains an enigma. Paul Allen made his fortune as Bill Gates\'s partner in Microsoft, supplemented it with questionable, though often profitable, venture capital schemes, and has since invested his wealth in a widely divergent list of interests.

He owns the NBA\'s Portland Trailblazers and the NFL\'s Seattle Seahawks. Among hundreds of smaller ventures, he is a primary stakeholder in the film production company DreamWorks SKG and formerly held a large piece of the widely despised Ticketmaster monopoly.

Dubbed the «Accidental Zillionaire» by Wired magazine, Allen has often appeared to be a bumbler who succeeded primarily through.
