"Wouldn't it be great if everyone said what they meant?” a voiceover asks in a ubiquitous TV ad for a major bank credit card. But what if the words people use have lost their meaning or have been changed to protect the guilty? That’s the exact situation we find ourselves in with today’s mainstream economics or, as Prof. Michael Hudson would call it, JUNK ECONOMICS.We are deep into a worldwide credibility gap: Politicians and their minions in the media declare that any news they don’t agree with is fake; alternate realities exist as to what is real and not real; history and science are eliminated or denied; the public domain and infrastructure is privatized and monopolized in the name of misguided ideology; and economics has been hijacked as a tool of corruption and crime on a global scale.With the world’s global economy spinning out of control, it’s more important than ever to learn – and perhaps relearn – all of the lessons of history, like them or not. You will find them in J IS FOR JUNK ECONOMICS: A GUIDE TO REALITY IN AN AGE OF DECEPTION, an unexpurgated look at the economic ideas that have allowed a resurgence of the true enemies of human progress: ignorance, feudalism and greed.So who needs economics, the “Dismal Science?” There are those (The One Percent) who want you to be put off by economics so that you’ll buy into the myths of wealth creation they’re promoting along with their view of the “proper” functions of government (see Government, Socialism for the Rich, and the essay, The 22 Major Economic Myths of Our Time). We (The 99 Percent) cannot vote in our best interests if we accept the received wisdom of economics as promoted by Wall Street and an academia purchased by the vested interests (e.g., big oil, big pharma, big banking, etc). Today, identity politics – without any mention of debt-strapped labor, consumer protection or new cold war confrontations – has supplanted any meaningful discussion of sustainable economic policy, to say nothing of the sustainable use of the earth’s resources. Vocabulary has become degraded and has facilitated the spread of misunderstanding and ignorance in the press, on the Internet, in classrooms and on the street. It’s not necessary to re-invent the wheel to take action, however. The major issues that guide healthy economies were known to the Ancients (many appear in the Bible) and were expanded upon by the classical economists in the 18th and 19th centuries (debt forgiveness, compound interest, rent theory and unearned income in particular). Their aim was to leave the brutal legacy of feudalism behind and embrace new technology, better living standards, and an economy of abundance. Their ideas and principles are brought back into the spotlight here. This book deconstructs today's watered-down, deceptive and value-free economics that favor the wealthy and powerful so that the next generation can create a successful economy with proper checks and balances, benefiting everyone. Prof. Hudson’s unique experience, perspective and pithy insight make economics and economic history comprehensible for the rest of us as well as useful for exploring today’s uncertain political and economic environment – and he shows us just who the winners and losers are! J IS FOR JUNK ECONOMICS contains 400 A-to-Z vocabulary entries, 7 essays provide commentary and context, Prof. Hudson’s Bubble Model, author bio(s), author interview, and a full topic index. This is the one book on economics that you’ll want to refer to again and again.Prof. Michael Hudson is one of the world’s leading economists. He is a veteran of Wall Street and Distinguished Research Professor of Economics at the University of Missouri at Kansas City (UMKC). He counsels governments on finance and tax policy, and gives presentations all over the world to groups reflecting diverse academic, economic and political constituencies.

Prophetic short stories and apocalyptic novels like The Crystal World made J. G. Ballard a foundational figure in the British New Wave. Rejecting the science fiction of rockets and aliens, he explored an inner space of humanity informed by psychiatry and biology and shaped by Surrealism. Later in his career, Ballard's combustible plots and violent imagery spurred controversy--even legal action--while his autobiographical 1984 war novel Empire of the Sun brought him fame. D. Harlan Wilson offers the first career-spanning analysis of an author who helped steer SF in new, if startling, directions. Here was a writer committed to moral ambiguity, one who drowned the world and erected a London high-rise doomed to descend into savagery--and coolly picked apart the characters trapped within each story. Wilson also examines Ballard's methods, his influence on cyberpunk, and the ways his fiction operates within the sphere of our larger culture and within SF itself.

Between the late 1890s and the early 1900s, the young Irish writer John Millington Synge journeyed across his home country, documenting his travels intermittently for ten years. His body of travel writing includes the travel book The Aran Islands, his literary journalism about West Kerry and Wicklow published in various periodicals, and his articles for the Manchester Guardian about rural poverty in Connemara and Mayo. Although Synge’s nonfiction is often considered of minor weight compared with his drama, Bruna argues persuasively that his travel narratives are instances of a pioneering ethnographic and journalistic imagination.J. M. Synge and Travel Writing of the Irish Revival is the first comprehensive study of Synge’s travel writing about Ireland, compiled during the zeitgeist of the preindependence Revival movement. Bruna argues that Synge’s nonfiction subverts inherited modes of travel writing that put an emphasis on Empire and Nation. Synge’s writing challenges these grand narratives by expressing a more complex idea of Irishness grounded in his empathetic observation of the local rural communities he traveled amongst. Drawing from critically neglected revivalist travel literature, newspapers and periodicals, and visual and archival documents, Bruna sketches a new portrait of a seminal Irish Literary Renaissance figure and sheds new light on the itineraries of activism and literary engagement of the broader Revival movement.

Mit seiner "Herr der Ringe"-Trilogie hat J. R. R. Tolkien ein epochales Meisterwerk der Fantasy-Literatur geschaffen. Nun geht der Wunsch von Millionen "Herr der Ringe"-Fans auf spektakuläre Weise in Erfüllung: eine neue Geschichte, die ganz dem Geist und der fantastischen Mythenwelt verpflichtet ist, die der legendäre Fantasy-Dichter erschuf, aus der Feder des Hommage-Spezialisten Didier Desmerveilles, der bereits mit "Stieg Larsson lebt" die Herzen der Fans höher schlagen ließ. In dem auf drei Bände angelegten Epos geht es zwar nicht zurück nach Mittelerde zu den Hobbits, doch Tolkien-Fans kommen dennoch auf ihre Kosten. Desmerveilles kreierte einen völlig neuen Kosmos, in dem sich diesmal nicht alles um drei unheilvolle Ringe dreht, sondern um die Carringe, drei magische Steine, die bei der Erschaffung der Welt durch den sagenumwobenen König Godot eine entscheidende Rolle spielten und ihrem Besitzer schier unumschränkte Macht sichern. Als die Autorität des alten Königs zu bröckeln beginnt, entzündet sich ein erbitterter Kampf um die Vorherrschaft im Reich. Die Menschen von Eisselgaard geraten zwischen die Fronten der blutigen Auseinandersetzung zwischen Titan, dem Anführer der Riesen, und Luzius, dem Fürsten der Finsternis. Der sechzehnjährige Gernot weiß nicht, wie ihm geschieht, als er aus seiner behüteten kleinen Vorstadtwelt in den brutalen Konflikt hineingezogen wird und sich auf geheimnisvolle Weise in einem mittelalterlichen Verlies wiederfindet. Wie sollte er ahnen, dass gerade er zur Schlüsselfigur in dem gewaltigen Krieg auserkoren ist, die erst Eisselgaard und bald das ganze Königreich ins Chaos stürzen wird ... Nein, die Carringe sind keine Ringe wie in Tolkiens Meisterwerk, das hier unübersehbar Pate stand, doch eines beweisen sie unmissverständlich: J. R. R. Tolkien, die Legende, lebt!---DER AUTOR: Er schlägt wieder zu, der "Konrad Kujau der deutschen Belletristik", und diesmal wagt er mehr denn je! Didier Desmerveilles, einst am Genfer See zu Hause, jetzt in aller Welt, ist Deutschlands führender Hommage-Dichter. Kaum einer kann so täuschend echt den Ton der Objekte seiner Huldigung treffen oder so erfinderisch neue Geschichten im Geist des Vorbilds ersinnen wie der vielseitige Autor, Publizist und Journalist in der von ihm konzipierten Reihe "Die Legende lebt". Erst setzte er Heinz Erhardt ein Denkmal. Mit seiner zweiten Veröffentlichung "Enid Blyton lebt!" verneigte er sich vor der englischen Vielschreiberin. "Stieg Larsson lebt!" wurde von den Fans genauso gehasst und geliebt wie die Fortsetzung der Millenniums-Trilogie von David Lagercrantz. Und nun darf man gespannt sein auf den Erfolg seiner Tolkien-Hommage, des wohl bisher größten Wagnisses des Autors, wie immer lanciert ohne Marketing-Maßnahmen und PR-Aktionen in sozialen Netzwerken und einzig fokussiert auf die Resonanz im jungen E-Book-Segment.

Born into a wealthy, secular New York Jewish family, a student of the Ethical Culture School in New York, later educated in theoretical physics at Harvard, Cambridge (UK) and Göttingen (Germany), appointed professor at UC-Berkeley and Caltech, J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904-1967) was on the forefront of the rise of theoretical physics in the United States to world-class status, contributing to the century-altering success of the Manhattan Project to build the atomic bomb. As the scientific leader of that project, Oppenheimer played a key advisory role in government, helping to forge the post-war military-industrial-scientific alliance that poured huge resources into post-war “big science.” Because of his position, Oppenheimer became for the public the heroic cultural icon of American science, but he also became a target and a tragic victim of the cold-war fear and nuclear war preparations underlying the McCarthy era.This biographical study focuses on Oppenheimer’s cultural and intellectual rise as a theoretical physicist as well as his role within the trajectory of the nation’s rise to scientific leadership and the post-war forces that confronted American science. This biography is nearly unique in that it includes discussions for general audiences of Oppenheimer’s work and contributions to theoretical physics, including his famous prediction of black holes sixty years before their confirmed discovery.“Now David Cassidy brings us the best account of Oppenheimer’s life in science with J. Robert Oppenheimer and the American Century.” — T. Powers, New York Review of Books“Cassidy covers this ground admirably in his thoughtful biography of Oppenheimer.” — Scientific American“Cassidy’s book...is probably the best single study of Oppenheimer to date.” — B. Bernstein, Physics World“Cassidy’s biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer is a concise, well-written book about the life of the famous 20th century scientist... A worthwhile read for anyone with an interest in the coming of age of American physics and how the weaknesses and strengths of one of its leaders shaped the relationship between science and the government for decades to come.” — Physics and Society “This biography is a detailed and beautifully written work. Cassidy expands beyond the traditional scope of a biography and expertly explores the surrounding environment that shaped Oppenheimer’s life.” — Atomic Archive“This excellent biography of J. Robert Oppenheimer places the eminent physicist in the context of twentieth century America... Cassidy... provides excellent insights into the life and times of this complex man. Unlike many other biographers of Oppenheimer, Cassidy assesses his role as a twentieth century theoretical physicist.” — Alsos Digital Library for Nuclear Issues“A superbly researched biography... There is no doubt that Cassidy gives us a valuable perspective on Oppenheimer’s life. The author is shy neither of editorializing nor of making judgments about the personalities who appear in the story... These comments are almost unfailingly fair and justified by the evidence.” — Times Higher Education“Cassidy... has written a book that neither praises Oppenheimer nor buries his reputation but, rather, puts some tarnish upon the icon.” — G. Herken, Science
