    ‘Wry and passionate first-hand observations from the global climate negotiations – essential for capturing the spirit of this endlessly frustrating struggle’ – Bill McKibben 
    Most people tend to turn away, perhaps understandably, from the key existential issue of the day: climate change or, some would say more accurately, climate collapse. Nick Breeze tells the engaging, very human story of successive COP conferences over the past decade: it is a tale of imperfection, failure even, but not yet defeat. 
    So far, the UN process has achieved almost the exact opposite of what it first set out to achieve at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992. Nick shows clearly that it is not Extinction Rebellion, Just Stop Oil nor any other climate protesters who are the extremists; the true extremists are the policymakers who consistently undermine faltering efforts to reduce emissions. Repeatedly claiming to be saving us whilst allowing carbon emissions to continue rising, governments have failed their people on climate. Nick shows us how, why and what we can do about it. 
    The public remains largely uninformed about climate change and, for the most part, those who seek to draw attention to the issue are seen as ‘crazy’. There remains a terrifying gap between scientific reality and political action. 
    Packed with his own experiences and insights from expert interviewees, Nick’s page-turning account is less about the intricacies of the science and more about the mainstream perception of how we are understanding and responding to the problem.

    Answer to the Question An: What...

    Immanuel Kant

    "Answering the Question: What Is Enlightenment?" is a 1784 essay by the philosopher Immanuel Kant. In the December 1784 publication of the Berlinische Monatsschrift (Berlin Monthly), edited by Friedrich Gedike and Johann Erich Biester, Kant replied to the question posed a year earlier by the Reverend Johann Friedrich Zöllner, who was also an official in the Prussian government. Zöllner's question was addressed to a broad intellectual public community, in reply to Biester's essay entitled: "Proposal, not to engage the clergy any longer when marriages are conducted" (April 1783) and a number of leading intellectuals replied with essays, of which Kant's is the most famous and has had the most impact. Kant's opening paragraph of the essay is a much-cited definition of a lack of enlightenment as people's inability to think for themselves due not to their lack of intellect, but lack of courage.
    Kant's essay also addressed the causes of a lack of enlightenment and the preconditions necessary to make it possible for people to enlighten themselves. He held it necessary that all church and state paternalism be abolished and people be given the freedom to use their own intellect. Kant praised Frederick II of Prussia for creating these preconditions. Kant focused on religious issues, saying that "our rulers" had less interest in telling citizens what to think in regard to artistic and scientific issues.

    For readers who enjoy a dark and mysterious plot with their sexy books, comes the final installment of this kinky m/m ( m/m/m & m/m/m/m/m) series inspired by the Edgar Allan Poe story, “The Fall of the House of Usher.” 
    In the conclusion of this kinky queer dark erotic romance, Alexander embraces a more dominant but equally submissive role within the House of Otter. Taking charge of even more boys as they join the strict order of the manor, Alexander complies with the demands of the master of the mansion as he continues to struggle with his deep sexual desires. 
    Deception from more than one man, and a passionate need for all of them, cloud his judgement as expectations and punishments swell. Friends become lovers as well as enemies while the whispers within the house grow louder, beckoning Alexander to fulfill a looming destiny he does not yet understand. 
    Color-coordinated jockstraps and harnesses, hairy chests in fetish gear, Daddy and boy dynamics, gay trans men, power exchange, mm, mmm, orgies, group play, nipple play, toys, sounding rods, and so much more lead up to one ultimate decision for Alexander. 
    With time running out, he must choose between his love for his friends, his keeper, and himself as he decides if the sexual lust he’s being offered tastes best paired with love or money. 
    It’s Edgar Allan Poe but with a queer kinky twist! 
    This MM BDSM Paranormal Dark Erotic Romance takes consent seriously. No otter boys were harmed (unless they wanted to be) in the writing of this book.*

    This captivating volume brings together case studies drawn from four post-Soviet states—Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova. The collected papers illustrate how the events that started in 1985 and brought down the USSR six years later led to the rise of fifteen successor states, with their own historicized collective memories. The volume’s analyses juxtapose history textbooks for secondary schools and universities, and how they aim to create understandings as well as identities that are politically usable, within their different contexts. 
    
    From this emerges a picture of multiple perestroika(s) and diverging development paths. Only in Ukraine—a country that recently experienced two popular uprisings, the Orange Revolution and the Revolution of Dignity—the people themselves are ascribed agency and the power to change their country. In the other three states, elites are, instead, presented as prime movers of society, as is historical determinism.
    
    The volume’s contributors are Diana Bencheci, Andrei Dudchik, Liliya Erushkina, Marharyta Fabrykant, Alexandr Gorylev, Andrey Kashin, Alla Marchenko, Valerii Mosneagu, Alexey Rusakov, Natalia Tregubova, and Yuliya Yurchuk.

    "I'm not a coward, but when 11 inch shells come screaming at you, well I know why the Navy supply two pairs of pants." 
    If you like Max Hastings and World War Two naval history then you will love this autobiography which gives an easy to read insider view of life in the Royal Navy during the war. 
    Ronnie Turner had set his sights on a career with the Royal Navy and like Ant Middleton, he wouldn't stop until he'd achieved his goal of having 'a smack at the boche'. 
    His quest plucked him from his home in Liverpool and led him to the exotic temptations of Rio, freezing Falkland storms and searching for a heavily armed German raider in a rowing boat with six scousers and a padre. 
    Drawn from Ronnie's illegal war diary and illustrated with never seen before photographs of life on board a Royal Navy heavy cruiser, this enjoyable tale of pocket battleships, torpedoed crews and Admiral Harwood's tattoo's, all sprinkled with Spike Milligan like humour, make this a story you won't want to put down.
