Book Excerpt :

William di Canzio’s Alec, inspired by Maurice, E. M. Forster’s secret novel of a happy same-sex love affair, tells the story of Alec Scudder, the gamekeeper Maurice Hall falls in love with in Forster’s classic, published only after the author's death. Di Canzio follows their story past the end of Maurice to the front lines of battle in World War I and beyond. Forster, who tried to write an epilogue about the future of his characters, was stymied by the radical change that the Great War brought to their world. With the hindsight of a century, di Canzio imagines a future for them and a past for Alec—a young villager possessed of remarkable passion and self-knowledge. Alec continues Forster’s project of telling stories that are part of “a great unrecorded history.” Di Canzio’s debut novel is a love story of epic proportions, at once classic and boldly new.

Book Short Summary:

This book has been a long time in the making. Other issues have taken me away from it from time to extended time. But I kept coming back to the problem of other minds. It has remained a great issue, it is much contested still, and it is, after all, elose to us all. I like believing that the time taken has deepened my understanding of the problem and how it is to be handled. Other people, some by disagreeing vehemently, have helped greatly. I mention in particular, Brian Ellis, Robert Fox, Graeme Marshali, Tim Oakley, Ray Pinkerton and Robert Young. Robert Pargetter argued with me, and kept insisting that I write this book. John Bigelow, Michael Bradley, Keith Campbell, Frank Jackson, and William Lycan assisted by reading an earlier version and providing valued comments. Frank Jackson has been specially helpful, not just on this topic. He can be blamed for initially causing me to take the analogical inference seriously. Tbe La Trobe Philosophy Department has been a good place to do philosophy. I am grateful to Suzanne Hayster, Sandra Paul, and Betty Pritchard for struggling at various times with various recalcitrant manuscripts. Most particularly I thank Gai Larkin. She has seen the project through, with considerably more than efficiency.

Book Short Summary:

This whimsical and informed debut picture book takes a leaf from a cookbook to show readers how the universe came into being. To bake a universe, you’ll need a heaping pile of nothing. That’s right, not a single thing! Just make sure you have enough . . . Alec Carvlin breaks down the Big Bang into the steps of a recipe, from the formation of quarks and atoms (preheat your oven to Absolute Hot) to the compression of gases into stars and planets (just set your timer for 180 million years). Carvlin expertly balances mind-boggling facts with snappy storytelling, and Brian Biggs’s bold and contagiously cheerful illustrations bring the infinite down to the bite-sized. How to Bake a Universe is an accessible and playful authority on the formation of the universe and a heartfelt commentary on how to live in it.

Book Short Summary:

The New York Times bestseller, from leading innovation expert Alec Ross, a “fascinating vision” (Forbes) of what’s next for the world and how to navigate the changes the future will bring. While Alec Ross was working as Senior Advisor for Innovation to the Secretary of State, he traveled to forty-one countries, exploring the latest advances coming out of every continent. From startup hubs in Kenya to R&D labs in South Korea, Ross has seen what the future holds. In The Industries of the Future, Ross provides a “lucid and informed guide” (Financial Times) to the changes coming in the next ten years. He examines the fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics and artificial intelligence, cybercrime and cybersecurity, the commercialization of genomics, the next step for big data, and the impact of digital technology on money and markets. In each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: How will we have to adapt to the changing nature of work? Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race? How can the world’s rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley with their own innovation hotspots? And what can today’s parents do to prepare their children for tomorrow? Ross blends storytelling and economic analysis to show how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live. Sharing insights from global leaders—from the founders of Google and Twitter to defense experts like David Petraeus—Ross reveals the technologies and industries that will drive the next stage of globalization. The Industries of the Future is “a riveting and mind-bending book” (New York Journal of Books), a “must read” (Wendy Kopp, Founder of Teach for America) regardless of “whether you follow these fields closely or you still think of Honda as a car rather than a robotics company” (Forbes).

Book Short Summary:

More than ever, data drives decisions in organizations—and we have more data, and more ways to analyze it, than ever. Yet strategic initiatives continue to fail as often as they did when computers ran on punch cards. Economist and research scientist Alec Levenson says we need a new approach. The problem, Levenson says, is that the business people who devise the strategies and the human resources people who get employees to implement them use completely different analytics. Business analytics can determine if operational priorities aren't being achieved but can't explain why. HR analytics reveal potentially helpful policy and process improvements but can't identify which would have the greatest strategic impact. This book shows how to use an integrated approach to bring these two pieces together. Levenson presents a thorough and realistic treatment of the reasons for and challenges of taking an integrated approach. He provides details on the different parts of both enterprise and human capital analytics that have to be conducted for integration to be successful and includes specific questions to ask, along with examples of applying integrated analytics to address particular organizational challenges. Effective analytics is a team sport. Levenson's approach allows you to get the deepest insights by bringing people together from both the business and HR perspectives to assess what's going on and determine the right solution.

Book Short Summary:

There have been doubts raised about certain features of Alec Watson’s (1844-1920) life story. Firstly, about the date and place of his birth, investigation into the former confirmed the date generally accepted, but enquiries into the latter threw up a number of problems. The author’s enquiries suggest a place of birth not even mentioned before. Secondly, there were certainly doubts about the legality of Watson’s bowling action: was he a ‘chucker’? The author considers the arguments and sources about this and suggests what he hopes is a fair conclusion. There were no doubts about Watson’s success; the facts and figures contained herein speak for themselves. Nor is there any doubt about his successful career on the fringes of cricket: as groundsman at Old Trafford; as a cricket coach to clubs and schools; and as a progressive sports outfitter with three shops in central Manchester and a big house on its outskirts. Truly a Life in Cricket!

Book Short Summary:

Three brothers. Power beyond reckoning. And a terrible betrayal. Adrian De Vere is the most powerful and charismatic politician on the planet. To many he heralds a future filled with peace and prosperity. Jason De Vere controls a third of the world’s media through his communications empire VOX. Brilliant and tenacious, little happens in the world without him knowing. Nick, international playboy (and archaeologist), is dying, a victim of his own recklessness. He has made a remarkable discovery he hopes may save him, but does not know how or what the cost will be. Despite their wealth and fame, the brothers’ family history is shadowed in lies. Now, with powerful forces both sacred and diabolical at play, one will betray the others – in an almost unimaginable way … “There could be no bigger canvas for film-making.” – Mark Ordesky (Executive Producer – Lord of the Rings) “Alec not only re-frames pre-history; she also imaginatively illustrates how the realm of spirit impacts the contemporary material world.” Ileen Maisel (Executive Producer for the Golden Compass) “This is the best work of fiction I have read since the last installment of Dean Koontz’ Frankenstein series” Jim McDonald – 1340Mag – Online Entertainment Magazine

Book Short Summary:

Governing with Judges elaborates a theory of constitutional politics, the process through which the discursive practices and techniques of constitutional adjudication come to structure the work of governments, parliaments, judges, and administrators. Focusing on the cases of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the European Union, the book examines the sources and consequences of the pan-European movement to confer constitutional review authority on a new governmental institution, the constitutional court. Detailed case studies illustrate how and to what extent legislative processes have been placed under the influence of constitutional judges. In a growing number of policy domains, these judges function as powerful, adjunct legislators. As constitutional courts have consolidated their position as authoritative interpreters of the constitutional law, and especially of human rights provisions, the work of the judiciary, too, has gradually been constitutionalised. Today, ordinary judges seek to detect violations of the constitution in their application of the various codes, and to rewrite statutes that they deem unconstitutional. Constitutional politics have not only provoked the demise of traditional notions of parliamentary sovereignty, they have organized profound transformations in the very nature of European governance. Stone Sweet argues that constitutional adjudication constructs complex causal linkages between rule systems and normativity, on the one hand, and the strategic behaviour of individuals, on the other. The theory constitutes a novel synthesis of normative and rational approaches to politics. The book also addresses central questions raised by a wide range of ongoing theory projects, including the 'new institutionalism,'rational choice, principal-agent theories of delegation, and the new constitutionalism in Continental legal theory.

A holiday on the Mexican Baja draws an unsuspecting American student into the dark and terrifying white slavery trade that thrives just below the glamorous surface of this high-end playground of the rich. The young girl's parents are close friends of President Hunt who sanctions a covert CIA action to bring the young lady home. Alec Caldwell is assigned the task, and in rescuing Katherine, stumbles on a well organized drug smuggling operation linked to the kidnapping. Its existence is unknown to the DEA. Fearing exposure of their ties to the illegal drug trade, President Hunt and his Mexican counterpart conspire to have Caldwell disappear. A daring military raid frees Alec who ultimately takes down both the assassin sent to kill him, and the people who run the drug trade and who were planning to sell the young girt to a Saudi buyer in payment for the drugs they were funneling up the Baja into the U.S. President Hunt's betrayal of Alec brings a harsh response from the CIA. His misdeeds have been well documented and a secret campaign is launched to expose this treachery and unseat him. But the CIA's initial efforts fail. Hunt is ultimately taken down, but not by the CIA. A person outside the agency with a personal vendetta is thought to be the assassin. But she disappears and a worldwide manhunt ensues. Is the assassin a CIA pawn? Does Alec remain with the CIA and go with Vanessa to Morocco on yet another black ops assignment? Or does he return to Montana to the respectable lifestyle his wife has planned for him? And, what does Alec mean when he toasts Vanessa with... “Here's looking at you, Kid!”

Book Short Summary:

The time is now! Acts of terrorism are making headlines throughout Europe and the US. The world is in a constant state of fear. Interpol, monitoring worldwide radio traffic, uncovers an assassination plot to assassinate the Queen, being orchestrated by a radical faction of the Irish Republican Army. The hit squad is Lebanese Hezbollah. The Prime Minister suspects someone close to the throne is calling the shots and turns to his friend, the Secretary of State, for advice. A secret meeting to develop a defensive strategy and flush out the mastermind is set up in a secluded cabin in Montana between two highly placed advisors to the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State, but the location is compromised, and Alec Caldwell, former CIA agent, is tasked with protecting the two men. The plot moves from the mountains of Montana to North Africa and on to Europe. As the story unfolds, the action moves to Scotland with Alec heading the effort to foil the plot and save the Queen’s life. But, is the assassination plot for real, or only a clever ruse contrived to throw Alec and British security off guard while the mastermind sets another more sinister plot in motion, one which will have more far-reaching political consequences? Set in today’s environment where everyday acts of terrorism dominate the news, The Irish Conspiracy explores an all-too-familiar world forced into a constant state of mistrust and fear.
