Unfinished Leninism The Rise and Return of a Revolutionary Doctrine

Paul Le Blanc, "Unfinished Leninism: The Rise and Return of a Revolutionary Doctrine"
2014 | pages: 256 | ISBN: 1608463664 | EPUB | 0,3 mb

"One doesn’t have to be a Leninist to read and appreciate Paul Le Blanc’s brilliant essays. This is indeed an outstanding study of Lenin’s ideas, his relation to Leon Trotsky and Rosa Luxemburg, as well as his unfinished democratic revolutionary legacy."-Michael Lowy
As a leader of the Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin was perhaps the greatest revolutionary of the twentieth century. These clearly written essays offer an account of his life and times, a lively view of his personality, and a stimulating engagement with his ideas.
Paul Le Blanc is a professor of history at La Roche College and has written widely on radical movements.

Unfamiliar Theology Reconceiving Sex, Reproduction and Generativity

Susannah Cornwall, Hyo Dong Lee, Marion Grau, Steed Vernyl Davidson, "Un/familiar Theology: Reconceiving Sex, Reproduction and Generativity (Rethinking Theologies: Constructing Alternatives in History and Doctrine)"
English | 2017 | ISBN: 0567673251 | 224 pages | PDF | 1.6 MB

Through engagement with theologies of adoption, pro-natalism, marriage, and queer theology, Susannah Cornwall figures developments in models of marriage and family not as distortions of or divergences from the divinely-ordained blueprint, but as developments already of a piece with these institution’s being.
Much Christian theological discussion of family, sex and marriage seems to claim that they are (or should be) unchanging and immaculate; that to celebrate their shifting and developing natures is to reject them as good gifts of God. However models of marriage, family, parenting and reproduction have changed and are still, in some cases radically, changing. These changes are not all a raging tide to be turned back, but in continuity with goods deeply embedded in the tradition. Alternative forms of marriage and family stand as signs of the hope of the possibility of change. Changed institutions, such as same-sex marriage, are new beginnings with the potential to be fruitful and generative in their own right. In them, humans create new imaginaries which more fully acknowledge the interactive nature of our relationships with the world and the divine.

Understanding Scientific Understanding

Understanding Scientific Understanding (Oxford Studies in Philosophy of Science) by Henk W. de Regt
2017 | ISBN: 0190652918 | English | 320 pages | PDF | 3 MB

It is widely acknowledged that a central aim of science is to achieve understanding of the world around us, and that possessing such understanding is highly important in our present-day society. But what does it mean to achieve this understanding? What precisely is scientific understanding? These are philosophical questions that have not yet received satisfactory answers. While there has been an ongoing debate about the nature of scientific explanation since Carl Hempel advanced his covering-law model in 1948, the related notion of understanding has been largely neglected, because most philosophers regarded understanding as merely a subjective by-product of objective explanations. By contrast, this book puts scientific understanding center stage. It is primarily a philosophical study, but also contains detailed historical case studies of scientific practice. In contrast to most existing studies in this area, it takes into account scientists’ views and analyzes their role in scientific debate and development. The aim of Understanding Scientific Understanding is to develop and defend a philosophical theory of scientific understanding that can describe and explain the historical variation of criteria for understanding actually employed by scientists. The theory does justice to the insights of such famous physicists as Werner Heisenberg and Richard Feynman, while bringing much-needed conceptual rigor to their intuitions. The scope of the proposed account of understanding is the natural sciences: while the detailed case studies derive from physics, examples from other sciences are presented to illustrate its wider validity.

UML Components A Simple Process for Specifying Component-Based Software

John Cheesman, John Daniels, "UML Components: A Simple Process for Specifying Component-Based Software"
2000 | pages: 191 | ISBN: 0201708515 | PDF | 3,3 mb

Although originally conceived as a notation for object-oriented modeling, UML has great potential for component-based systems. UML Components applies UML to the world of component architecture, demonstrating how it can be used to specify components, their interactions, and their integration into cohesive systems. This book shows readers which elements of UML apply to server-side component-based development and how to use them most effectively. Following a simple step-by-step process, the authors walk through requirements definition, component identification, component interaction, component specification, and provisioning and assembly. Throughout, the focus is on the specification of the external characteristics of components and their inter-dependencies, rather than on internal implementation. Numerous UML diagrams illustrate component specifications, and a detailed case study demonstrates important concepts and techniques. System architects, designers, programmers, and testers interested in leveraging the advantages of UML will find this a concise, practical, and insightful guide. The authors address the two great challenges of designing and constructing enterprise-scale componen

Ukraine’s Euromaidan Analyses of a Civil Revolution

Ukraine’s Euromaidan : Analyses of a Civil Revolution
by David R. Marples and Frederick V. Mills
English | 2015 | ISBN: 3838207408 | 276 Pages | ePUB | 0.8 MB

The papers presented in this volume analyze the civil uprising known as Euromaidan that began in central Kyiv in late November 2013, when the Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych opted not to sign an Association Agreement with the European Union, and continued over the following months. The topics include the motivations and expectations of protesters, organized crime, nationalism, gender issues, mass media, the Russian language, and the impact of Euromaidan on Ukrainian politics as well as on the EU, Russia, and Belarus. An epilogue to the book looks at the aftermath, including the Russian annexation of Crimea and the creation of breakaway republics in the east, leading to full-scale conflict. The goal of the book is less to offer a definitive account than one that represents a variety of aspects of a mass movement that captivated world attention and led to the downfall of the Yanukovych presidency.

Turkey A Short History

Turkey: A Short History by Norman Stone
English | March 25th, 2013 | ASIN: B00C6DIOFC, ISBN: 0500290385 | 208 pages | AZW3 | 1.51 MB
A virtuoso performance by historian Norman Stone, who has lived and worked in the country since 1997, this concise survey of Turkeys relations with its immediate neighbours and the wider world from the 11th century to the present day.

A virtuoso performance by historian Norman Stone, who has lived and worked in the country since 1997, this concise survey of Turkeys relations with its immediate neighbours and the wider world from the 11th century to the present day.
Stone deftly conducts the reader through this story, from the arrival of the Seljuks in Anatolia in the eleventh century to the modern republic applying for EU membership in the twenty-first. It is an historical account of epic proportions, featuring rapacious leaders such as Genghis Khan and Tamerlane through the glories of Sultan Su?leyman the Magnificent to Kemal Atatu?rk, the reforming genius and founder of modern Turkey. At its height, the Ottoman Empire was a superpower that brought Islam to the gates of Vienna.
Stone examines the reasons for the empires long decline and shows how it gave birth to the modern Turkish republic, where east and west, religion and secularism, tradition and modernity still form vibrant elements of national identity. Norman Stone brilliantly draws out the larger themes of Turkeys history, resulting in a book that is a masterly exposition of the historians craft.
