Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0034

In practical terms, human ageing and illness will be reversed; pollution will be stopped and world hunger and poverty will be solved.

(P/B) WORLD WAR Z
AN ORAL HISTORY OF THE ZOMBIE WAR
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0030

It began with rumours from China about another pandemic. Then the cases started to multiply and what had looked like the stirrings of a criminal underclass, even the beginnings of a revolution, soon revealed itself to be much, much worse. Faced with a future of mindless, man-eating horror, humanity was forced to accept the logic of world government and face events that tested our sanity and our sense of reality. Based on extensive interviews with survivors and key players in the 10-year fight-back against the horde, World War Z brings the ...

(P/B) DEPENDENT RATIONAL ANIMALS
WHY HUMAN BEINGS NEED THE VIRTUES
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0022

Where should an account of the virtues begin? In "Dependent Rational Animals", Alasdair MacIntyre argues that we should begin with those facts of vulnerability and disability, and of consequent dependence on others, to which moral philosophers have generally given insufficient attention, and with the animal nature of human beings - that which exhibits their kinship to members of other intelligent species. He argues that it is by reference to these that we become able to understand the part played in our lives both by the virtues of indepen...

(P/B) THE HARLEM HELLFIGHTERS
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0041

In 1919, the 369th infantry regiment - the Harlem Hellfighters as the Germans called them - marched home triumphantly from World War I. They had spent more time in combat than any other American unit, never losing a foot of ground to the enemy, or a man to capture, and winning countless decorations. Though they returned home from the trenches of France as heroes, this overlooked African American unit faced tremendous discrimination, even from their own government thus having to fight on two fronts as they helped to secure victory for Ameri...

(P/B) ARCADIAN NIGHTS
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0044

The vibrant retelling of the central Greek myths by acclaimed novelist John Spurling, author of The Ten Thousand Things, winner of the 2015 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction. The classical Greek intellectual tradition pervades nearly every aspect of our modern Western civilization.

An eccentric Greek chorus of locals - wry, witty, sceptical, and not always entirely sober - ke...

(P/B) THE GENIUS OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0004

In what respects was Alexander 'Great'? It is an exciting task for a historian to answer that question, and in this fascinating study Nicholas Hammond undertakes it with enthusiasm. His thorough acquaintance with the ancient sources enables him to judge whether the many recorded incidents of Alexander's brilliant life are drawn from reliable contemporaries or fictional writers. As a commander of men of many races, Alexander was and is incomparable. As a statesman he envisaged, and to some extent created, an ecumenical kingdom which rose ab...

(P/B) THE PHYSICS OF SUPERHEROES
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0033

Acclaimed university professor James Kakalios shows that comic book heroes and villains get their physics right more often than you would think. If superheroes stepped off the comic book page or silver screen and into reality, could they actually work their wonders in a world constrained by the laws of physics? How strong would Superman have to be to leap tall buildings in a single bound? Could Storm of the X-Men possibly control the weather? Face front, True Believer, and wonder no more! Because in The Physics of Superheroes youll learn ...

(P/B) ANCIENT DEMOCRACY AND MODERN IDEOLOGY
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0038

How should we study the democracy of classical Athens? How, if at all, is it relevant to our own world with its different forms of democracy? Attitudes to Athenian democracy have always been affected by the circumstances of those studying it; but, after a period in which scholars professed objectivity and impartiality as their ideal, the possibility of attaining that ideal has been questioned, and ideological commitment and relevance to contemporary circumstances have returned into fashion. This book traces developments in the study of Ath...

(P/B) TAKING RIGHTS SERIOUSLY
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0006

(...) The various chapters define and defend a liberal theory of law. They are nevertheless sharply critical of another theory that is widely thought to be a liberal theory. This theory has been so popular and influencial that I shall call it the ruling theory of law. The ruling theory has two parts, and insists on their independence. The first is a theory about what law is; in less dramatic language it is a theory about the necessary and sufficient conditions for the truth of a proposition of law. This is the theory of legal positivism, w...

(P/B) GENDER AND THE INTERPRETATION OF CLASSICAL MYTH
Εκδότης: GERALD DUCKWORTH
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1044-0035

Myths reflect, reinforce, and sometimes subvert gender ideologies and so have an influence in the real world. This is true in the present no less than when the Greek and Roman myths were created. The struggles to redefine gender roles and identities in our own time are inevitably reflected in our interpretations and retellings of these classical myths. Using the new lenses provided by gender studies and the diverse forms of feminism, Lillian Doherty re-examines some of the major approaches to myth interpretation since the nineteenth centur...
