Theodore Dalrymple's brilliant new collection of writings follows on the extraordinary success of his earlier books, Life at the Bottom and Our Culture, What's Left of It. No writer today is more adept and incisive in exploring the state of our culture and the ideas that are changing our ways of life. In Not with a Bang But a Whimper, he takes the measure of our cultural decline, with special attention to Britain-its bureaucratic muddle, oppressive welfare mentality, and aimless young-all pursued in the name of democracy and freedom. He shows how terrorism and the growing numbers of Muslim minorities have changed our public life. Also here are Mr. Dalrymple's trenchant observations on artists and ideologues, and on the treatment of criminals and the mentally disturbed, his area of medical interest.

Retired theatre professor and attorney David Stevens began blogging in February 2012. This book is a collection of his blogs through August 2014. He has, he says, the academic habit of writing about whatever he is thinking about, so his blog deals with legal issues, theatrical issues, political issues, and personal reminiscences. Eight essays constituted his legal memoir, For Three Weeks I Owned the University of Illinois. Five more served as early drafts of chapters of his textbook, The Art and Craft of Play Directing. Some six essays make up his as yet unpublished theatrical memoir. Also included are portions of chapters from his other academic books, as well as a chapter from his yet-unfinished novel. Finally, Stevens rants effectively about the unconstitutional attempts of the Illinois legislature to reduce or eliminate the automatic annual increases in state retiree pensions, as well as other political issues such as the electoral college and the 2012 presidential election.

The Civilization Of Christianity

Author : John L. McKenzie

The devastating thesis of this book is that there is a deadly and irreconcilable opposition between western civilization and Christianity, and that one of them must destroy the other. Throughout his more than forty years of teaching and writing, says John L. McKenzie, he felt a vague but strong discomfort -- a malaise. He finally realized that it was a deliberately unrecognized discord between what I was and the word of God which I had so long studied. My way of life and my world demanded the maintenance of a number of assumptions which the world of God compelled me to question. My way of life and my world did not permit me to ask those questions. When the questions grew to an intolerable number, this book was the only way to find comfort, the comfort which I hope is reached by at last achieving total candor. And candid John McKenzie is in this piercing analysis of the confrontation between Christianity and a world which has twisted it, softened it, rationalized it, and evaded its basic precepts.

Who knew that doomsday would be so hot? Environmental disasters, Ebola outbreaks, the popularity of reality television, and strife in the Middle East, may all be signs that time has come today. Weak and ailing after the end of the Cold War and the financial spree of the nineties, the timeless notion that the end is near is once again exerting a powerful influence on pop culture, politics, religion, and Mel Gibson. Omens and prophecies, asteroids collisions and nuclear war, oil crises and global warming, fire or ice, bang or whimper, asteroid or alien, act of God or human folly, Armageddon Now: The End of the World A to Z is all over doomsday prophecies. From alpha to omega, it is packed with 200 entries and 100 illustrations. Satan, saints, survivalists, and evangelical preachers known for their views on Biblical prophecies receive their due. In the end, the end has never been so thoroughly covered as in Armageddon Now. It's the last word for the end user. So, don't be left behind. Save yourself by buying this book.
