Download Free Men Like Gods PDF by H. G. Wells Full Book and published by Wildside Press LLC. This book was released on 2009-08 with total page 327 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Men Like Gods" is a 1922 novel written by H. G. Wells. It features a utopian parallel universe. The hero of the novel, Mr. Barnstaple, is a depressive journalist in the newspaper "The Liberal." At the beginning of the story, Mr. Barnstaple, as well as a few other Englishmen, are accidentally transported to the parallel world of Utopia. Utopia is like an advanced Earth, although it had been quite similar to Earth in the past in a period known to Utopians as the "Days of Confusion." Utopia is a utopian world: it has a utopian socialist world government, advanced science, and even pathogens have been eliminated and predators are almost tamed. Barnstaple is confounded and confused by the utopian attitudes: "where is your government ?" he asks. "our government is in our education" is the answer. Barnstaple gradually loses his Victorian English narcissism. For instance, Wells makes comments on personal responsibility when Barnstaple sees a person slaving over a rose garden at high altitude and asks, "Why don't you hire a gardener?" The answer is, "The working class has vanished from utopia years ago! He who loves the rose must then serve that rose." Barnstaple is changed by those experiences and he loses his Eurocentric view of the world and starts to really get the idea of the place. As this conversion starts to take place, Utopians begin to fall ill. This, however, means that the newly arrived Earthlings pose a grave threat to Utopians, as the latter's immune system has become weak; and the Earthlings have to be quarantined until a solution is found. They resent this isolation and some of them plot to take over Utopia...
Download Free A Harmony of Interests PDF by Manfred Weidhorn Full Book and published by Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press. This book was released on 1992 with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This study of Churchill's sensibility is an attempt to portray - through a scrutiny of his written and spoken words - the ineffable mental processes at the border of thought and feeling. It is also a collection of observations made by acquaintances of the man, critics, and historians. The present work seeks to present Churchill's "harmony of interests," his thoughts and feelings on a half dozen major topics - literature, conservatism, war, Marlborough, America, and the Great Man. Unlike the typical politician, Churchill had contacts with many men of letters. Though he cooperated with Galsworthy on prison reform, for four decades he had a running battle with Wells and Shaw on such issues as Communism in Russia and Greece, the Empire, and the British social system. Such conflict raises the question of Churchill's ideology, which became increasingly conservative with time. Manfred Weidhorn explores this emerging conservatism through consideration of different Churchillian interests - such as domestic issues and the concept of imperial mission. The most complex aspect of Churchill's conservatism is his ambivalence to war. A closer reading of his utterances and of the observations of those about him suggests a definite and idiosyncratic love of war. Clear too, says Weidhorn, is that violence was a means - not an end - for Churchill. A man of peace, Churchill's extremity in posing issues sometimes made peace elusive. But in the crunch of 1940, his eccentricity, or obsession, became Western Civilization's salvation. During his years in the wilderness, Churchill wrote a huge biography of his ancestor, the Duke of Marlborough. Besides presenting the Duke - a brilliant general much maligned for avarice and warmongering - in a favorable way, his work sheds an interesting light on the imminent World War II. In tracing Marlborough's career, he draws upon his own career in an exercise that is part prophecy, part self-fulfilling prophecy, part eerie coincidence, and part nonsense. As a semi-American, Churchill had a peculiar view of the U.S. It colored his writing of history, his vision of British foreign policy, his journalistic reports on his visits to America, and his diplomacy when in high office. These views, which constitute an important background to Churchill's position in World War II, are here traced through some six decades of travel, politics, and writing. Tracing Marlborough's career commits one willy-nilly to the view that great men rather than historical forces shape the course of events. But a survey of Churchill's writings suggests that he held to neither theory with consistency or theoretical scaffolding. He used or discarded each one at the behest of the logic of his argument or the drift of his lulling rhetoric.

Download Free From a "Race of Masters" to a "Master Race": 1948 to 1848 PDF by A.E. Samaan Full Book and published by Library Without Walls, LLC.. This book was released on 2020-11-09 with total page 800 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Nazism remains an enigma. Historians do not know whether to slot Nazism as a phenomenon of the political “right” or “left,” largely because of a misunderstanding of how central eugenics was to the regime. Eugenics, or “racial hygiene,” was at the core of National Socialism’s domestic policy, foreign policy, culture wars, and even Hitler’s obsession with cars, highways, and city planning. Thus, no coherent understanding of the regime is possible without first grasping the nature of eugenics. Eugenics did not originate with Nazi Germany. It was the culmination of a worldwide movement that was widely accepted by the global scientific and academic community. This book traces the origins of the Nazi eugenics state, working backward down the timeline, tracing from leaf down to the root. We investigate this 100-year trajectory from its beginnings in British and American Academia, delving into the conveniently forgotten inner-workings of a scientific era, uncovering previously unpublished manuscripts, professional correspondence, and conveniently forgotten publications. With the centenary of The Holocaust looming, uprooting the web of professional connections that engendered this movement is in order. The seeds of Holocaust denial take root and prosper with misinformation. Clarity and transparency are imperative, as they leave no room for denial theories that would deprive the victims of justice, or rob the living of a future. www.RaceOfMasters.com NOTE: A preliminary version of this book was circulated amongst academic circles and other interested parties as an Advanced Readers Copy (A.R.C.) in 2015. This version is a part the Eugenics Anthology seven-book series that is currently being completed by A.E. Samaan. Hardbound versions of the books will not be released until the series is complete, and all the puzzle pieces in place. For more information, please visit EugenicsAnthology.com
Download Free Building Cosmopolis PDF by John S. Partington Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-03-02 with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Alongside his reputation as an author, H.G. Wells is also remembered as a leading political commentator of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Building Cosmopolis presents the worldview of Wells as developed between his student days at the Normal School of Science (1884-1887) and his death in 1946. During this time, Wells developed a unique political philosophy, grounded on the one hand in the theory of 'Ethical Evolution' as propounded by his professor, T.H. Huxley, and on the other in late Victorian socialism. From this basis Wells developed a worldview which rejected class struggle and nationalism and embraced global co-operation for the maintenance of peace and the advancement of the human species in a world society. Although committed to the idea of a world state, Wells became more antagonistic towards the nation state as a political unit during the carnage of the First World War. He began moving away from the position of an internationalist to one of a cosmopolitan in 1916, and throughout the inter-war period he advanced the notion of regional and, ultimately, functional world government to a greater and greater extent. Wells first demonstrated a functionalist society in Men Like Gods (1923) and further elaborated this system of government in most of his works, both fictional and non-fictional, throughout the rest of his life. Following an examination of the development of his political thought from inception to fruition, this study argues that Wells's political thoughts rank him alongside David Mitrany as one of the two founders of the functionalist school of international relations, an acknowledgement hitherto denied to Wells by scholars of world-government theory.
Download Free The Last Poems of D.H. Lawrence PDF by Bethan Jones Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-03-03 with total page 248 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the first book to take D. H. Lawrence's Last Poems as its starting point, Bethan Jones adopts a broadly intertextual approach to explore key aspects of Lawrence's late style. The evolution and meaning of the poems are considered in relation to Lawrence's prose works of this period, including Sketches of Etruscan Places, Lady Chatterley's Lover, and Apocalypse. More broadly, Jones shows that Lawrence's late works are products of a complex process of textual assimilation, as she uncovers the importance of Lawrence's reading in mythology, cosmology, primitivism, mysticism, astronomy, and astrology. The result is a book that highlights the richness and diversity of his poetic output, also prioritizing the masterpieces of Lawrence's mature style which are as accomplished as anything produced by his Modernist contemporaries.

Download Free Seeing Through the Eye PDF by Malcolm Muggeridge Full Book and published by Ignatius Press. This book was released on 2005 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Malcolm Muggeridge was one of Great Britain's mostwell-known journalists and television personalities, having interviewed practically every major public figure of his time. He shocked the world with his conversion to Christianity later in life. St. Mugg, as he was affectionately known, was clear in his new-found faith: It is the truth that has died, not God, and Jesus was God or he was nothing. These wonderful selections of Muggeridge's writings and speeches cover a wide variety of spiritualthemes, revealing his profound faith, great wit, and lively writing style. Topics include Jesus: The Man Who Lives, Is There a God?, The Prospect of Death, Do We NeedReligion?, Peace and Power, and many more. The counter-countercultural declaration of Mr. Muggeridge'sconversion was especially eye-catching given the great legions traveling in the opposite direction. His largerpublic knew him through his work as a television host and critic. But all of literate England, and much of America, knew him as a learned and incisive journalist who had written Winter in Moscow, a searing exposé of Communism. His intellect and historical savoir-faire gave hiscriticisms a very long reach. In America he made regular appearances as book editor of Esquire magazine. NoEnglishman has a more mordant, more attractive wit.

Download Free Aliens PDF by Eaton Conference on Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature Full Book and published by SIU Press. This book was released on 1987 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: How and when does there come to be an "anthropology of the alien?” This set of essays, written for the eighth J. Lloyd Eaton Conference on Fantasy and Science Fiction, is concerned with the significance of that question. "[Anthropology] is the science that must designate the alien if it is to redefine a place for itself in the universe,” according to the Introduction. The idea of the alien is not new. In the Renaissance, Montaigne’s purpose in describing an alien encounter was excorporation--mankind was the "savage” because the artificial devices of nature controlled him. Shakespeare’s version of the alien encounter was incorporation; his character of Caliban is brought to the artificial, political world of man and incorporated into the body politic "The essays in this volume . . . show, in their general orientation, that the tribe of Shakespeare still, in literary studies at least, outnumbers that of Montaigne.” These essays show the interrelation of the excorporating possibilities to the internal soundings of the alien encounter within the human mind and form. This book is divided into three parts: "Searchings: The Quest for the Alien” includes "The Aliens in Our Mind,” by Larry Niven; "Effing the Ineffable,” by Gregory Benford; "Border Patrols,” by Michael Beehler; "Alien Aliens,” by Pascal Ducommun; and "Metamorphoses of the Dragon,” by George E. Slusser. "Sightings: The Aliens among Us” includes "Discriminating among Friends,” by John Huntington; "Sex, Superman, Sociobiology,” by Joseph D. Miller; "Cowboys and Telepaths,” by Eric S. Rabkin; "Robots,” by Noel Perrin; "Aliens in the Supermarket,” by George R. Guffey; and "Aliens 'R’ U.S.,” by Zoe Sofia. "Soundings: Man as the Alien” includes "H. G. Wells’ Familiar Aliens,” by John R. Reed; "Inspiration and Possession,” by Clayton Koelb; "Cybernauts in Cyberspace,” by David Porush; "The Human Alien,” by Leighton Brett Cooke; "From Astarte to Barbie,” by Frank McConnell; and "An Indication of Monsters;” by Colin Greenland.
Download Free H.G. Wells at the End of His Tether PDF by Gordon D. Feir Full Book and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2005 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: H.G. Wells was one of the most prolific writers in the English language. He published over one hundred books, yet he is recognized by only two or three of his popular novels including The Time Machine and War of the Worlds. Why has such a well known and widely read author from the nineteenth century almost disappeared from the bookshelves of the twenty-first century? H.G. Wells at the End of His Tether attempts to answer this question and others by examining his work from a nineteenth century perspective. Wells was a controversial figure. He was an avid socialist and a self-proclaimed prophet. He hated the Church and the Monarchy and spent much of his life promoting utopian ideals, world government and other radical concepts that are politically incorrect today. As he watched the First World War tear Europe asunder he wrote The War to End War and created a new label for that infamous conflict. He was a highly vocal anti-war journalist and often frustrated by how little impact he was making on the world. When the Second World War descended on Europe he became despondent as he approached the end of his political and literary tether.
