Character is indispensable to a successful career and a happy life. It’s also essential to our liberty, because if a society can’t govern itself, then government must step in to police our decisions and actions. Sounds pretty heavy, right? Well, the good news is that character is nothing more than the sum of our choices, and it is something every one of us has total control over. And here’s even better news: this book gives us flesh-and-blood models—men and women whose choices and actions make them heroes. The forty people Lawrence W. Reed profiles in this accessible, inspirational book are not the usual examples. Some are well-known historical and cultural figures, yes—but Real Heroes also features many remarkable people you have never heard of. Reed ranges far and wide—from the distant past to the present; from the United States, to Europe, to Asia; from statesmen to scientists, athletes to inventors, entrepreneurs to theologians, and writers to teachers. Concise and compelling, Real Heroes features a bulleted summary of key facts and takeaways at the end of each profile. This book will become a treasured resource for parents and teachers and a favorite of readers of all ages.

In this revised ediiton, Chafuen blosters his case by including recent and pertinent material which gives rise to new questions and concerns.

This book seeks to identify the forces which explain how and why some parts of the world have grown rich and others have lagged behind. Encompassing 2000 years of history, part 1 begins with the Roman Empire and explores the key factors that have influenced economic development in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Europe. Part 2 covers the development of macroeconomic tools of analysis from the 17th century to the present. Part 3 looks to the future and considers what the shape of the world economy might be in 2030. Combining both the close quantitative analysis for which Professor Maddison is famous with a more qualitative approach that takes into account the complexity of the forces at work, this book provides students and all interested readers with a totally fascinating overview of world economic history. Professor Maddison has the unique ability to synthesise vast amounts of information into a clear narrative flow that entertains as well as informs, making this text an invaluable resource for all students and scholars, and anyone interested in trying to understand why some parts of the World are so much richer than others.

Economics as it is taught today is replete with fallacies. So is history. Combine the two into Economic History and you frequently get a witch's brew of mumbo jumbo. The Industrial Revolution was a setback for workers. Free markets caused monopoly and exploitation. Government intervention was required for economic growth and for economic recovery. These are but a few of the many misconceptions that constantly need revisiting, and are addressed within this volume. The authors recognize that both economics and history must be about much more than numbers. That's why many of the offerings here focus on the interesting contributions of people who changed the course of events. One of the essential points we hope readers of this anthology will come away with is the critical importance of specific individuals in shaping the course of the amorphous collective known as "society."

What went wrong in imperial Rome, and how we can avoid it: “If you want to understand where America stands in the world today, read this.” —Thomas E. Ricks The rise and fall of ancient Rome has been on American minds since the beginning of our republic. Depending on who’s doing the talking, the history of Rome serves as either a triumphal call to action—or a dire warning of imminent collapse. In this “provocative and lively” book, Cullen Murphy points out that today we focus less on the Roman Republic than on the empire that took its place, and reveals a wide array of similarities between the two societies (The New York Times). Looking at the blinkered, insular culture of our capitals; the debilitating effect of bribery in public life; the paradoxical issue of borders; and the weakening of the body politic through various forms of privatization, Murphy persuasively argues that we most resemble Rome in the burgeoning corruption of our government and in our arrogant ignorance of the world outside—two things that must be changed if we are to avoid Rome’s fate. “Are We Rome? is just about a perfect book. . . . I wish every politician would spend an evening with this book.” —James Fallows

The truest hero does not think of himself as one, never advertises himself as such, and does not perform the acts that make him a hero for either fame or fortune. He does not wait for government to act if he senses an opportunity to fix a problem himself. From "Real Heroes" by LawrenceW. Reed Character is indispensable to a successful career and a happy life. It s also essential to our liberty, because if a society can t govern itself, then government must step in to police our decisions and actions. Sounds pretty heavy, right?

And here s even better news: this book gives us flesh-and-blood models men and women whose choices and actions make them heroes. The forty people LawrenceW.

Reed ranges far and wide from the distant past to the present; from the United States, to Europe, to Asia; from statesmen to scientists, athletes to inventors, entrepreneurs to theologians, and writers to teachers. Reed s heroes include: The nineteenth-century American educator who was vilified and threatened for daring to teach black girlsThe British politician who fought for decades to end slaveryThe courageous Cambodian who alerted the world to Pol Pot s killing fieldsThe Polish soldier who endured imprisonment in Auschwitz and ultimately was executed for leading the resistance against the Nazis Concise and compelling, "Real Heroes" features a bulleted summary of key facts and takeaways at the end of each profile.
