An Enemy of the people (original Norwegian title: En folkefiende) is an 1882 play by Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen. Ibsen wrote it in response to the public outcry against his play Ghosts, which at that time was considered scandalous. Ghosts had challenged the hypocrisy of Victorian morality and was deemed indecent for its veiled references to syphilis. Upon completion of the play, Ibsen wrote to his publisher in Copenhagen, Denmark : "I am still uncertain as to whether I should call it a comedy or a straight drama. It may [have] many traits of comedy, but it also is based on a serious idea." Themes In An Enemy of the People, speaking the language of comic exaggeration through the mouth of his spokesman, the disillusioned idealist Doctor Thomas Stockmann, Ibsen puts into very literal terms the theme of the play: It is true that ideas grow stale and platitudinous, but one may go one step further and say flatly that truths die. According to Stockmann, there are no absolute principles of either wisdom or morality. In this Ibsen is referring indirectly to the reception of his previous plays. For example, the commandment "honor thy father and thy mother" referred to in Ghosts is not simply either true or false. It may have been a truth once and a falsehood today. As Stockmann puts it in his excited harangue to his political enemies: "Truths are by no means the wiry Methuselahs some people think them. A normally constituted truth lives---let us say---as a rule, seventeen or eighteen years; at the outside twenty; very seldom more. And truths so patriarchal as that are always shockingly emaciated."

his highly acclaimed book brings out the long struggle of Dr. Binayak Sen in the fields of health care and protection of human rights. Dr. Sen slogged for the poor tribals in Chhattisgarh. The state government considers him an enemy and has charged him with sedition. The people of that region consider him their best friend. As a doctor, he has brought relief to thousands of men, women, and children. As the Secretary of the People's Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL), he has exposed the atrocities of the police and state-sponsored peace force, Salwa Judum, against the innocent masses. These machinations were designed to displace those poor people from their habitat. The idea was to enable the influential corporate firms to tap the mineral wealth of that region. The noble doctor has been dubbed as “Maoist Courier” and convicted on flimsy grounds. Nevertheless, he has also been honoured with international awards in the USA and South Korea for his work. The government of Chhattisgarh continues to pursue baseless cases against him. This book presents the noble doctor in true perspective and tries to present the truth before the entire world. It proves that Dr. Sen is a friend and not an enemy of the masses. This book was written after a lot of research. The authors opine that Dr. Binayak Sen's acquittal might herald a new era in India. Read this book to welcome that era…

Following The Broken Estate, The Irresponsible Self, and How Fiction Works—books that established James Wood as the leading critic of his generation—The Fun Stuff confirms Wood's preeminence, not only as a discerning judge but also as an appreciator of the contemporary novel. In twenty-three passionate, sparkling dispatches—that range over such crucial writers as Thomas Hardy, Leon Tolstoy, Edmund Wilson, and Mikhail Lermontov—Wood offers a panoramic look at the modern novel. He effortlessly connects his encyclopedic, passionate understanding of the literary canon with an equally in-depth analysis of the most important authors writing today, including Cormac McCarthy, Lydia Davis, Aleksandar Hemon, and Michel Houellebecq. Included in The Fun Stuff are the title essay on Keith Moon and the lost joys of drumming—which was a finalist for last year's National Magazine Awards—as well as Wood's essay on George Orwell, which Christopher Hitchens selected for the Best American Essays 2010. The Fun Stuff is indispensable reading for anyone who cares about contemporary literature.

Understanding the Strategies of Your Enemy explains that satan, the devil, is our archenemy who works tirelessly to thwart the Plans and Purposes of God. He has many fallen angels, demons, and witches who work with him to manipulate and thwart God’s Intentions. The devil uses sin, ignorance, disobedience, deceit, and many other things to steal, kill, and destroy. Many times, the devil comes in destructive and oppressive manners. This, he does in the form of accidents, wars, murders, sicknesses, diseases, and witchcraft attacks. But we have been given authority and power over the devil and his works. And when we pray and give commands in the Name of Jesus Christ, the works of the devil are destroyed. We have to increase our Knowledge of God and His Things, and grow in understanding the ways of the devil, so that we will not be destroyed or suffer loss due to ignorance.
