An unsuspecting traveler finds himself in a manor with the most unusual mirrors; a murdered florist is avenged by her most trusted companions; in an African village, rumor tells of a river bride; traffic comes to a halt for the practice known as "necklacing;" a desperate writer makes a bargain with his muse and discovers what it means to live for ones art. The common thread weaving through each of these narrative poems is a breathtaking exploration of the human condition. Combining the very best elements of the short story and poetry genres, spanning from medieval times through the present day, these poetic stories are a balanced combination of original fantasy tales and social commentary. With themes ranging from the eerie to the humorous and topics such as child neglect, these fast-paced stories of life, death, and everything in-between are sure to take you on an unforgettable journey to other worlds. As entertaining as it is thought provoking, "Tales of Fantasy and Reality" is a riveting, insightful, and altogether arresting compilation.

Free Market Conservatism Routledge Revivals

First published in 1984, this book carefully dissects and convincingly demonstrates that conservative economics is incoherent in theory and disastrous in practice. The three main schools of thought supporting "free-market" policies – supply side economics, monetarism and rational expectations – are examined in turn and each is found defective. Three case studies of conservative policy in action follow: Reagan’s U.S., Thatcher’s U.K. and Pinochet’s Chile and their courses are charted in depth. In addition, Robert Heilbroner and Edward Nell analyse economic conservatism’s ideology and social policy, and the book concludes with an assessment of the political reasons for the continuing appeal of free-market conservatism despite its theoretical incoherence and practical failure. This is a careful and comprehensive look at this subject which tackles both the theory and the practice head-on. It will make useful and stimulating reading for students of economics and political economy on courses of economic policy and macro-economics and in addition will be of keen interest to all those involved in the debate about one of the major policy issues of our time.
