Book Summary:

‘A landmark work giving a global panorama of Mao's ideology filled with historic events and enlivened by striking characters’ Jonathan Fenby, author of The Penguin History of China Since the 1980s, China seems to have abandoned the utopian turmoil of Mao’s revolution in favour of authoritarian capitalism. But Mao and his ideas remain central to the People’s Republic. With disagreements between China and the West on the rise, the need to understand the political legacy of Mao is urgent and growing. A crucial motor of the Cold War: Maoism shaped the course of the Vietnam War and brought to power the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia; it aided anti-colonial resistance movements in Africa; it inspired terrorism in Germany and Italy, and wars and insurgencies in Peru, India and Nepal, some of which are still with us today. Starting with the birth of Mao’s revolution in northwest China in the 1930s and concluding with its violent afterlives in South Asia and resurgence in the People’s Republic today, Julia Lovell re-evaluates Maoism as both a Chinese and an international force, linking its evolution in China with its global legacy.

Book Summary:

“This is the book I’ve been waiting for—only it’s richer, deeper, and more intriguing than I could have imagined. A Road Unforeseen is a major contribution to our understanding of feminism and Islam, of women and the world, and gives me fresh hope for change.” —Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed and Living With a Wild God In war-torn northern Syria, a democratic society—based on secularism, ethnic inclusiveness, and gender equality—has won significant victories against the Islamic State, or Daesh, with women on the front lines as fierce warriors and leaders. A Road Unforeseen recounts the dramatic, underreported history of the Rojava Kurds, whose all-women militia was instrumental in the perilous mountaintop rescue of tens of thousands of civilians besieged in Iraq. Up to that point, the Islamic State had seemed invincible. Yet these women helped vanquish them, bringing the first half of the refugees to safety within twenty-four hours. Who are the revolutionary women of Rojava and what lessons can we learn from their heroic story? How does their political philosophy differ from that of Iraqi Kurdistan, the Islamic State, and Turkey? And will the politics of the twenty-first century be shaped by the opposition between these political models? Meredith Tax is a writer and political activist. Author, most recently, of Double Bind: The Muslim Right, the Anglo-American Left, and Universal Human Rights, she was founding president of Women’s WORLD, a global free speech network of feminist writers, and cofounder of the PEN American Center’s Women’s Committee and the International PEN Women Writers’ Committee. She is currently international board chair of the Centre for Secular Space and lives in New York.

Book Summary:

In 1917 revolutionary fervour swept through Russia, ending centuries of imperial rule and instigating political and social changes that would lead to the formation of the Soviet Union. Arising out of proletariat discontent with the Tsarist autocracy and Lenin's proclaimed version of a Marxist ideology, the revolutionary period saw a complete overhaul of Russian politics and society and led directly to the ensuing civil war. The Soviet Union eventually became the world's first communist state and the events of 1917 proved to be one of the turning-points in world history, setting in motion a chain of events which would change the entire course of the twentieth century. Geoffrey Swain provides a concise yet thorough overview of the revolution and the path to civil war. By looking, with fresh perspectives, on the causes of the revolution, as well as the international response, Swain provides a new interpretation of the events of 1917, published to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the revolution.

Book Summary:

MODX Revolution: Building the Web Your Way presents an extensive look at an amazing and extensible Content Management Platform by providing real-world examples and hundreds of screen shots to bridge the gap typically experienced by users when pressing into new concepts and systems. Readers can approach this book as a quick reference, progressive primer, the basis to streamline team activities, or simply as a means to stretch skill sets into new areas based on the author's decades of experience integrating development teams and partnering with clients around the globe. MODX Revolution: Building the Web Your Way is divided into four logical sections allowing readers to quickly access topics via the outline formatted Table of Contents or the index. Each chapter progressively increases in complexity and builds on concepts previously presented in the text. Features introduced in MODX Revolution 2.2.x-pl: Media Sources, Dashboards, and file-based Elements have also been introduced. In short, MODX Revolution: Building the Web Your Way is the book the author would have wanted on his desk, since he began using MODX products in 2005, and what multiple people from around the globe asked him for. MODX Revolution: Building the Web Your Way is an example-driven guide which effectively walks readers through various aspects of administrating, using, developing, and designing websites. Everything necessary to successfully operate a MODX Revolution site has been included in this book with the intention of familiarizing users so they can rapidly begin developing their own applications. MODX Revolution: Building the Web Your Way is divided into four sections: Part 1: Foundations contains quite a bit of explanation and numerous examples regarding each of the topics necessary to become familiar with MODX Revolution. Part II: Live Projects begins with a quick-start chapter and moves into real world development examples incorporating jQuery, Ajax, Search Engine optimization, and various other topics for building better projects. Part III: Administration introduces the concepts and techniques to effectively administrate a MODX Revolution project. Access Control Lists and other ?difficult? topics are presented in a straightforward manner utilizing very familiar terminology to quickly establish concepts usually considered to be advanced simply due to their assumed complexity. Part IV: Development takes a ?stone tossed across water? view of building dynamic PHP applications using MODX Revolution as a foundation. The areas of discovery range from the most commonly used methods in the API, to building third-party applications from scratch - including the xPDO schema and extending the generated classes into full applications. Regardless of your skill level, this book was conceived with the idea of allowing you to begin at your current level of experience and continue as far as you would want to. The examples chosen for this book are intended to easily reach a large number of readers, especially those who are self-taught or who are looking for a "low-impact" learning curve. The author intentionally refrained from using overly technical examples and verbiage so as to relate to a larger audience, even though some of the topics may be considered advanced to some readers.

Book Summary:

We have forgotten, and no longer teach or support, that a very primary reason for the American Revolution, for which blood was shed long before any Declaration of Independence, was based upon class and economic struggles. Attempts to prohibit wide disparities in Wealth and Power were at the heart of the Revolution and incorporated in the Documents of the time, the Articles of Confederation, our first national constitution, most state constitutions, and taken from the Articles of Confederation directly into our Constitution of today. There they still sit, waiting for us to enforce them. The American Revolution was the first in the Americas to successfully challenge the "one per centers" of its day, the super wealth and powerful. Such "aristocrats" who survived it, including many who became leaders of it, had to accept that the governments of the states and the United States now insisted, using the language commonly understood of the times that they often supplied, on placing a limit on social, political, legal and economic inequality and power and influence. It is time to enforce these basic constitutional principles to bring about a more just society. If you agree, please share this work wherever you can; in schools, libraries, on talk shows, though the webs, in the courts and law schools, in political campaigns and throughout the fifth estate. The United States now needs to rekindle an appreciation for these primary principles to bring about a more egalitarian society promised us all. This is not a book for the timid.

Book Summary:

From the author of Letters of Transit, Reading the Rails, and Appalachia Spring comes this delightful account of a journey across the People's Republic of China, in search of the men who shaped its modern history. Along the way Matthew Stevenson visits Mao's cave house in Yenan, where Chiang was kidnapped in Xian, General Joseph Stilwell's house in Chongqing, and Sun Yat-sen's hideouts in Guangzhou and Hong Kong. Between Beijing and Hong Kong, and many places in between, Stevenson moves around by bicycle, train, and foot, allowing him to describe the places that shaped the lives of China's founders. Of Mao's cave in Yenan, Stevenson writes: "The simple houses are dug into the side of the hill and are reached by climbing steps from the parking lot. Most have nothing more than a bed, a few chairs, a table, and a cupboard--the revolution playing out in what New Yorkers would call a 'single-room occupancy.'" The Revolution as a Dinner Party is a graceful book, full of observation and humor, that is perfect for one today thinking about China--either its past or future. It also an accessible history of China's last hundred years and biographies of the men at the heart of the country's many conflicts.
