Winner of the English PEN Translation Award In a surreal but familiar vision of modern-day Egypt, a centralized authority known as the Gate has risen to power in the aftermath of the Disgraceful Events, a failed popular uprising. Citizens are required to obtain permission from the Gate in order to take care of even the most basic of their daily affairs, yet the Gate never opens, and the queue in front of it grows longer. Citizens from all walks of life mix and wait in the sun: a revolutionary journalist, a sheikh, a poor woman concerned for her daughter's health, and even the brother of a security officer killed in clashes with protestors. Among them is Yehia, a man who was shot during the Events and is waiting for permission from the Gate to remove a bullet that remains lodged in his pelvis. Yehia's health steadily declines, yet at every turn officials refuse to assist him, actively denying the very existence of the bullet. Ultimately it is Tarek, the principled doctor tending to Yehia's case, who must decide whether to follow protocol as he has always done or to disobey the law and risk his career to operate on Yehia and save his life. Written with dark, subtle humor, The Queue describes the sinister nature of authoritarianism and illuminates the way that absolute authority manipulates information, mobilizes others in service to it, and fails to uphold the rights of even those faithful to it. 1.

It is 1956. Three years ago, Leo Demidov moved on from his career as a member of the state security force. As an MGB officer, Leo had been responsible for untold numbers of arrests and interrogations. But as a reward for his heroic service in stopping a killer who had terrorized citizens throughout the country, Leo was granted the authority to establish and run a homicide department in Moscow. Now, he strives to see justice done on behalf of murder victims in the Soviet capital, while at the same time working to build a life with his wife Raisa and their adopted daughters, Zoya and Elena. Leo's past, however, can not be left behind so easily, and the legacy of his former career - the friends and families of those he had arrested as a state security officer - continues to hound him. Now, a new string of murders in the capital threaten to bring Leo's past crashing into the present, shattering the fragile foundations of his new life in Moscow, and putting his daughter Zoya's life at risk. Faced with a threat to his family, Leo is launched on a desperate, personal mission that will take him to the harsh Siberian Gulags, to the depths of the hidden criminal underworld, and into the heart of Budapest and the Hungarian uprising. 1.

With a new introduction on using the principles of The Servant in your life and career, this book redefines what it means to be a leader. In this absorbing tale, you watch the timeless principles of servant leadership unfold through the story of John Daily, a businessman whose outwardly successful life is spiraling out of control. He is failing miserably in each of his leadership roles as boss, husband, father, and coach. To get his life back on track, he reluctantly attends a weeklong leadership retreat at a remote Benedictine monastery. To John's surprise, the monk leading the seminar is a former business executive and Wall Street legend. Taking John under his wing, the monk guides him to a realization that is simple yet profound: The true foundation of leadership is not power, but authority, which is built upon relationships, love, service, and sacrifice. Along with John, you will learn that the principles in this book are neither new nor complex. They don't demand special talents; they are simply based on strengthening the bonds of respect, responsibility, and caring with the people around you. The Servant's message can be applied by anyone, anywhere - at home or at work. If you are tired of books that lecture instead of teach; if you are searching for ways to improve your leadership skills; if you want to understand the timeless virtues that lead to lasting and meaningful success, then this book is one you cannot afford to miss. 1.

Ockham Explained is an important and much-needed resource on William of Ockham, one of the most important philosophers of the Middle Ages. His eventful and controversial life was marked by sharp career moves and academic and ecclesiastical battles. At 28, Ockham was a conservative English theologian focused obsessively on the nature of language, but by 40, he had transformed into a fugitive friar, accused of heresy, and finally protected by the German emperor as he composed incendiary treatises calling for strong limits on papal authority. This book provides a thorough grounding in Ockham’s life and his many contributions to philosophy. It begins with an overview of the philosopher's youth and the Aristotelian philosophy he studied as a boy. Subsequent chapters cover his ideas on language and logic; his metaphysics and vaunted "razor", as well as his opponents’ "anti-razor" theories; his invention of the church-state separation; and much more. The concluding chapter sums up Ockham's compelling philosophical personality and explains his modern appeal. The book is published by Open Court.“A lucid introduction to William of Ockham that, in fitting tribute to its subject, is philosophically engaging from start to finish.” (Jack Zupko, co-author of Stoicism: Traditions and Transformations)“Rondo Keele offers the non-specialist a readable presentation of Ockham's ideas…and he makes clear the true nature of the much used but often misunderstood term ‘Ockham's Razor'.” (Jean D'Amato Thomas, Professor of Classics, Northwestern State University)“Does great service in knocking down the barriers of language and form that so often keep non-specialists from exploring medieval philosophy on their own.” (Charles Bolyard, Associate Professor of Philosophy, James Madison University) 1.

DISCOVER POWERFUL TECHNIQUES YOU CAN USE TO MANIPULATE, PERSUADE, AND INFLUENCE ANYONE Do you believe people's brainwashing occurs only in films? Do you believe using the subconscious mind is something that only crazy people would attempt to do? The reality is that we are imperfect as human beings. We have shortcomings. And if you study these weaknesses and get to understand them, you will have enormous authority in your hands. When you master the correct methods of manipulation, the real ones, you can fully affect the thinking of other people and make them do what you want. Manipulation brings with it a lot of adverse connotation, but at some stage we've all used it, and it's probable we've also been a topic. It's just the method used to get someone to do something particular for you. It can be presented in the form of a television commercial, a road billboard ad, or a sales person attempting to persuade you to buy a product or service. In your daily social, private, and career lives, psychological manipulation abilities can be very helpful. This book can be your guide to manipulation in all its aspects - from the very basics to the techniques you can use to manipulate others, such as persuasion, mind control, and NLP, to the tactics used by malicious manipulators on innocent people to hurt and take advantage of them, as well as how to combat them. At your fingertips, it's all in here. In this book you’ll learn: Using blame or guilt to influence others Proven NLP manipulation techniques How to make other do what you want using unreasonable requests Tips and trick to make you own manipulation techniques How to master body language to influence people What leads people to manipulate others Neuro Linguistic Programming and its role in manipulation Powerful techniques to manipulate, persuade and influence anyone How to use 1.

A leading American evangelical minister - whom public figures long turned to for guidance in faith and politics - recounts his three conversions, from childhood Jewish roots to Christianity, from a pure faith to a highly politicized one, and from the religious right to the simplicity of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Rob Schenck’s extraordinary life has been at the center of the intersection between evangelical Christianity and modern politics. Attacked by partisans on both sides of the aisle, he has been called a "right-wing hate monger", the "ultimate D.C. power-broker", a "traitor", and "turncoat." Now, this influential spiritual adviser to America’s political class chronicles his controversial, sometimes troubling career in this revelatory and often shocking memoir. As a teenager in the 1970s, Schenck converted from Judaism to Christianity and found his calling in public ministry. In the 1980s, he, like his twin brother, became a radical activist leader of the anti-abortion movement. In the wake of his hero Ronald Reagan’s rise to the White House, Schenck became a leading figure in the religious right inside the Beltway. Emboldened by his authority and access to the highest reaches of government, Schenck was a zealous warrior, brazenly mixing ministry with Republican political activism - even confronting President Bill Clinton during a midnight Christmas Eve service at Washington’s National Cathedral. But in the past few years Schenck has undergone another conversion - his most meaningful transition yet. Increasingly troubled by the part he played in the corruption of religion by politics, this man of faith has returned to the purity of the gospel. Like Paul on the Road to Damascus, he had an epiphany: revisiting the lessons of love that Jesus imparted, Schenck realized he had strayed from his deepest convictions. Reaffirming his core spiritual beliefs, Schenck today works to liberate the evangelical community from the opp 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Schenck.

The issues, opportunities and challenges of aligning information technology more closely with an organization and effectively governing an organization¿s Information Technology (IT) investments, resources, major initiatives and superior uninterrupted service is becoming a major concern of the Board and executive management in enterprises on a global basis. An integrated and comprehensive approach to the alignment, planning, execution and governance of IT and its resources has become critical to more effectively align, integrate, invest, measure, deploy, service and sustain the strategic and tactical direction and value proposition of IT in support of organizations. Much has been written and documented about the individual components of IT Governance such as strategic planning, demand (portfolio investment) management, program and project management, IT service management and delivery, strategic sourcing and outsourcing, performance management and metrics, like the balanced scorecard, compliance and others. Much less has been written about a comprehensive and integrated IT/Business Alignment, Planning, Execution and Governance approach. This new title fills that need in the marketplace and gives readers a structured and practical solutions using the best of the best principles available today. The book is divided into nine chapters, which cover the three critical pillars necessary to develop, execute and sustain a robust and effective IT governance environment - leadership and proactive people and change agents, flexible and scalable processes and enabling technology. Each of the chapters also covers one or more of the following action oriented topics: demand management and alignment (the why and what of IT ¿ strategic planning, portfolio investment management, decision authority, etc.); execution management (includes the how - Program/Project Management, IT Service Management and Delivery with IT Infrastructure Library and Strategic Sourcing and outsourcing); performance, risk and contingency management (e.g. includes COBIT, the balanced scorecard and other metrics and controls); and leadership, teams and people skills. Endorsements 'Selig has brought together his years of practical experience and his academic training to produce a valuable resource on how to successfully manage IT. He uses IT governance as the focal point for executing best practices to create alignment between IT and the business. In today¿s marketplace, where no organization can compete effectively without alignment, this book can become the executive handbook for IT management' Christine V. Bullen, Senior Lecturer, Howe School of Technology Management, Stevens Institute of Technology 'Dr. Selig has written an extremely comprehensive book on IT Governance. It is so comprehensive that today's IT leader need look at few other sources to ensure that they have nailed what it takes to lead a world-class IT organization. It provides details, yet serves as a easily reference-able road-map for today's busy IT executives¿it's a great desktop companion!' Stu Werner, Executive Vice President and CIO, Li & Fong, U.S.A. 'Dr. Selig¿s book on this topic is a great resource for all IT practitioners and brings together every critical aspect relating to IT governance. This book lays out a roadmap to executing within a solid governance model. It looks at all aspects of establishing, marinating, growing and sustaining an IT ecosystem. The combination of case studies and disciplined approaches to building well structured processes, committed leaders and change agents will help the board, executive management and most of all, CIO¿s and IT professionals think through what has worked, what can work and how to deployIT governance successfully. I very much enjoyed reading the chapters. I think you have a great book and I look forward to reading it when it comes out' Dick LeFave, CIO, Sprint Nextel 'In an era when strong IT governance is an increasingly critical component of visionary business and technology leadership, Dr Selig's book provides a welcome compendium of successful practices. Experienced leaders will find it a valuable reference, while early-career managers will appreciate the clear, actionable framework for developing high-quality
