Atlas of Prejudice 2 will help you overcome the post-coital tristesse that’s been torturing you since you finished reading the first volume. It will take you to fresh climatic heights, unveiling new fascinating landscapes of human bigotry. The book offers a unique view on otherwise trivial subjects like the Spanish Reconquista and its incestuous but God-fearing masterminds Isabella and Ferdinand, the transatlantic voyages of a racist xenophobe called Christopher Columbus, the passion for ridiculous hats of an Ottoman sultan, the love affair between Charlemagne and Pope Leo III, and the discovery of America by Scandinavian socialists known as the Vikings. You will also find out that virtuous men, like Alexander the Great, only commit mistakes when they listen to women; what’s the difference between the author’s grandmother and Amelia Earhart; how many mummies did Europeans eat during the Renaissance; and why unicorns, who love the company of virgins, got extinct in the early 17th Century, never to be seen again. In the moments when it doesn’t reinvent history, the book offers a stomach-cramping map of horrible European food, a guide for dividing the Old Continent, a prophecy about the aftermath of the coming Blitzjihad, and a world map according to Facebook users.

More than a hundred stereotype maps glazed with exquisite human prejudice, especially collected for you by Yanko Tsvetkov, author of the viral Mapping Stereotypes project. Satire and cartography rarely come in a single package but in the Atlas of Prejudice they successfully blend in a work of art that is both funny and thought-provoking. A reliable weapon against bigots of all kinds, it serves as an inexhaustible source of much needed argumentation and—occasionally—as a nice slab of paper that can be used to smack them across the face whenever reasoning becomes utterly impossible. This second edition packs the most extensive collection of Tsvetkov’s maps to date in a single book suitable for all ages, genders, and races.

Prejudice is a multi-faceted concept that affects the relationships between individuals and groups and the creation of socially formed categories of ideas. It concerns race, religion, gender, social distinctions and political beliefs, and can be considered as a natural human process of out-group homogeneity, as well as the product of an authoritarian context or as a reaction against modernization or other symbolic or realistic threats. This volume defines the dynamics and policies of prejudice in the historical passage between the modern and contemporary age, bringing together articles by different scholars representing various disciplines, which allows an analysis of the different aspects of prejudice. The book includes interesting chapters on anti-Semitism, the ethnic conflicts of the twentieth century, Russia and the Balkans, and gender bias, among other subjects.

The injection of a combination of vitamins and medications into the middle layer of the skin has been practised in continental Europe for some fifty years now, but because the literature has hitherto not been published in English the topic is still surrounded by a great deal of ignorance and prejudice. This atlas from a renowned authorship will document in detail what is involved in the practical techniques of mesotherapy and will be of extreme interest to all practitioners of cosmetic dermatology. All practitioners in minimally invasive aesthetic surgery will have heard or read about mesotherapy - the injection of a combination of vitamins and medications into the middle layer of the skin - which has been refined in continental Europe for over fifty years, but because the literature has hitherto not been published in English the topic in general is still surrounded by a great deal of ignorance (and even prejudice). This atlas from a renowned European authorship will document in detail what is involved in the practical clinical techniques of mesotherapy and will be an essential reference.

Earth is a legend amongst legends; it survived the meteors that decimated the dinosaurs, it survived the coming of the great comet half its size and most importantly it survived humans, its greatest threat. In time humans realized that they could not survive without the Earth and peace emerged and with that came great civilizations. These civilizations prospered and grew; the earth was no longer enough, they needed more, more than just the moon, sun and the stars. They expanded past their moon, at first they found nothing but as their minds developed so did their technology. Finally they found it, they were scared at first but in time they embraced it and finally came to terms with the fact that they were not alone and as time would allow it, the Earth grew with the rest of the seven great planets in the solar system. There was no more need for exploration, no more room for questions, this is was an era of solutions. Solutions that brought great nations together, continents became countries and race; became a thing of the past. Peace was no longer a distant reality but as time would have it, nothing lasts forever; Earth became part of a solution, a solution that would cost it all its inhabitants, will the Earth survive once more?

Set in the long-lost City of Victoria (a fictional world similar to Hong Kong), Atlas is written from the unified perspective of future archaeologists struggling to rebuild a thrilling metropolis. Divided into four sections—"Theory," "The City," "Streets," and "Signs"—the novel reimagines Victoria through maps and other historical documents and artifacts, mixing real-world scenarios with purely imaginary people and events while incorporating anecdotes and actual and fictional social commentary and critique. Much like the quasi-fictional adventures in map-reading and remapping explored by Paul Auster, Jorge Luis Borges, and Italo Calvino, Dung Kai-cheung's novel challenges the representation of place and history and the limits of technical and scientific media in reconstructing a history. It best exemplifies the author's versatility and experimentation, along with China's rapidly evolving literary culture, by blending fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in a story about succeeding and failing to recapture the things we lose. Playing with a variety of styles and subjects, Dung Kai-cheung inventively engages with the fate of Hong Kong since its British "handover" in 1997, which officially marked the end of colonial rule and the beginning of an uncharted future.

Democrat and Republican factions continue to spread lies, and the United States will be ruined if they're allowed to go unchecked. Their behavior can easily be compared to the Jim Crow South - only this time, it's constitutional conservatives who are being abused. The good people of America need to join forces to launch an MLK-style movement to restore equal rights and fiscal sanity. John Lofgren, an intellectual patriot, explains how the liberal movement and faux conservatives are perverting the entire fiscal system in this powerful narrative that uncovers startling parallels between the past and present. He traces the frightening trajectory of U.S. fiscal policy beginning with the 1840s Erie Canal financing. By providing a platform for proposing solutions to the corruption and misguided views rampant in government, the author seeks to bring the country back to a firm foundation of financial stability. This book builds a case to de-socialize the banking system, end preferential rights, and re-establish state powers in order to reignite the pride and diversity America once leveraged to great economic advantage.
