Summary

Giovanni Gentile is widely acknowledged as the foundational philosopher of Italian Fascism. He worked in academia as well as government, contributing to the formation of the Italian corporate state and education system under Benito Mussolini. Gentile continued writing and contributing to the Italian Fascist state until his assassination by the Italian Communist Party in 1944.
 
In The Philosophy of Marx, Gentile critiques the failures of Marxist philosophy as presented by numerous thinkers including Marx himself. Gentile argues that Marx erred in his conception of historical materialism, which led to flaws in Marxist praxis, and presents his view of a more authentically Hegelian philosophy of dialectics and epistemology. According to Gentile, who promoted what he termed “actual idealism,” the dialectic was not a mystical, external force, but rather an organic element of life, and required a strong, central state, which could coordinate and fulfill otherwise competing and struggling identities and interests.
 
Antelope Hill is proud to present its original translation of Giovanni Gentile’s The Philosophy of Marx originally published in 1899, updated in 1937. This work is fundamental to understanding the politics of the early twentieth century and will remain invaluable to future generations looking to understand the past.

D. with Gene StoneAbout:What does it take to live a healthy life that’s free from chronic disease? As the physician behind the popular NutritionFacts website, Dr. Greger designed “How Not to Die” to be a convenient resource on how to optimize your health and stave off life-threatening diseases like cancer. The book is packed with groundbreaking evidence from the world of nutrition science about the world’s healthiest foods and diets; and how to incorporate them into your everyday life. In his view, the majority of premature deaths due to lifestyle diseases like heart attacks, diabetes and liver problems could all be prevented through a change in diet.For Dr. Michael Greger, the secret is to follow a healthy, whole foods diet that looks a lot like the vegan diet. However, Dr. Greger doesn’t advocate for a certain way of eating. Rather, he prefers to present the scientific facts and let his readers come to their own conclusions. For most, however, the evidence in support of a plant-based diet is overwhelmingly positive.By showing us how we can reject pills in favor of fruits and vegetables, Dr. Greger is setting out to change the paradigm of modern health, and to give us the tools we need to take back control of our own nutrition. 1.6 million Americans lose their lives every year to the fifteen leading causes of chronic disease, and almost all of these deaths could be prevented through a healthier lifestyle.In addition to teaching you what makes you sick, Dr. Greger also reveals what makes you well with his top “Daily Dozen” foods that everyone should eat for good health. This book is packed with practical tips and actionable insights — with a full 150 pages of scientific references to back them up. And in this book summary, we’re excited to present some of the best Big Ideas Dr. Greger presents in “How Not to Die.”Here’s what you’ll learn about in this book summary:- Why eating animal products of all forms is more toxic for your health than you’d expect.- The importance of eating a wide variety of plants for daily nutrition.- What the “daily dozen” is and how you can get them in regularly.- The ways that food can work as medicine to keep you healthy from chronic disease.- Why preventing chronic disease is easier than treating it, and how your diet does the work for you.Original audiobook description:From the physician behind the wildly popular website Nutrition Facts, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of Nutrition Facts, examines the 15 top causes of premature death in America - heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more - and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives.

    “This book . . . is likely to stand as the definitive record of the American use of armed force in [the 90s] . . . a tour de force of reportorial narration” (The New York Times). 
     
    In The Best and the Brightest, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist David Halberstam pulled back the curtain on the personalities and discussions that led America into the war in Vietnam. In War in a Time of Peace, he once again enters the halls of power to chronicle the inner workings of American foreign policy in post–Cold War America. 
     
    Evoking the internal conflicts, unchecked egos, and power struggles within the White House, the State Department, and the military, Halberstam shows how the decisions of men who served in the Vietnam War, and those who did not, have shaped America’s role in global events. He provides fascinating portraits of those in power—Clinton, Bush, Reagan, Kissinger, James Baker, Dick Cheney, Madeleine Albright, and others—to reveal a stunning view of modern political America.

    Marcus Fabius Quintilianus was of Spanish origin, being born about 35 A.D. at Calagurris. At Rome he met with great success as a teacher and was the first rhetorician to set up a genuine public school and to receive a salary from the State. He left behind him a treatise "On the causes of the decadence of Roman oratory" (De causis corruptae eloquentiae), some speeches and his magnum opus, the only one to survive to our days. His Institutio Oratoria, despite the fact that much of it is highly technical, has still much that is of interest to-day, even for those who care little for the history of rhetoric. (Summary adapted from the translator's preface) This first volume covers books 1 to 3.
