Summary

In 'Children of the Ghetto: A Study of a Peculiar People' by Israel Zangwill, readers are taken on a detailed exploration of the East End Jewish community in London in the late 19th century. Zangwill's writing style combines elements of realism and social commentary, painting a vivid picture of the struggles and triumphs of the Jewish immigrants living in the ghetto. The book delves into themes of identity, assimilation, and the clash between tradition and modernity, making it a valuable contribution to both Jewish literature and Victorian social realism. Zangwill's nuanced portrayal of characters and their inner conflicts adds depth to the narrative, giving readers a rich insight into the lives of a marginalized community. Israel Zangwill, a prominent Jewish writer and activist, drew inspiration from his own experiences growing up in a Jewish immigrant family in London. His commitment to social justice and cultural identity shines through in 'Children of the Ghetto,' as he seeks to shed light on the challenges faced by the Jewish community in a rapidly changing world. I highly recommend 'Children of the Ghetto: A Study of a Peculiar People' to readers interested in delving into the complexities of immigrant life, cultural identity, and social justice. Zangwill's insightful observations and powerful storytelling make this book a compelling and thought-provoking read.

    Russia Without Putin - Money...

    How the West's obsession with Vladimir Putin prevents it from understanding RussiaIt is impossible to think of Russia today without thinking of Vladimir Putin. More than any other major national leader, he personifies his country in the eyes of the outside world, and dominates Western media coverage of it to an extraordinary extent. In Russia itself, he is likewise the centre of attention for detractors and supporters alike. But as Tony Wood argues, this overwhelming focus on the president and his personality means that we understand Russia less than we ever did before. Too much attention is paid to the man, and not enough to the country outside the Kremlin's walls. In this timely and provocative analysis, Wood looks beyond Putin to explore the profound changes Russia has undergone since 1991. In the process, he challenges many of the common assumptions made about contemporary Russia. Though commonly viewed as an ominous return to Soviet authoritarianism, Putin's rule should instead be seen as a direct continuation of Yeltsin's in the 1990s. And though many of Russia's problems today are blamed on legacies of the Soviet past, Wood argues that the core features of Putinism—a predatory, authoritarian elite presiding over a vastly unequal society—are integral to the system set in place after the fall of Communism.What kind of country has emerged from Russia's post-Soviet transformations, and where might it go in future? Russia Without Putin culminates in an arresting analysis of the country's foreign policy—identifying the real power dynamics behind its escalating clashes with the West—and with reflections on the paths Russia might take in the twenty-first century.

    An enlightening look at the importance of war gods and their myths to the ancient Romans. 
     
    This book redresses the relative lack of work published on the role of war in classical myth and legend. At the same time it debunks the popular view that the Romans had little mythology of their own and idly borrowed and adapted Greek myth to suit their own ends. While this is true to some extent, War in Roman Myth and Legend clearly demonstrates a rich and meaningful independent mythology at work in Roman culture. 
     
    The book opens by addressing how the Romans did adopt and adapt Greek myths to fashion the beginnings of Roman history; it goes on to discuss the Roman gods of war and the ubiquity of war in Roman society and politics and how this was reflected in the Aeneas Foundation Myth, the Romulus and Remus Foundation Myth, and the legends associated with the founding of Rome. Also discussed are warlike women in Roman epic; Trojan heroes; and the use of mythology by Roman poets other than Virgil. The Theban Legion and the vision of Constantine myths conclude the journey.

    Continuing his groundbreaking analysis of economic structures, Douglass North develops an analytical framework for explaining the ways in which institutions and institutional change affect the performance of economies.Institutions exist due to the uncertainties involved in human interaction; they are the constraints devised to structure that interaction. Yet, institutions vary widely in their consequences for economic performance; some economies develop institutions that produce growth and development, while others develop institutions that produce stagnation. North first explores the nature of institutions and explains the role of transaction and production costs in their development. The second part of the book deals with institutional change. Institutions create the incentive structure in an economy, and organizations will be created to take advantage of the opportunities provided within a given institutional framework. North argues that the kinds of skills and knowledge fostered by the structure of an economy will shape the direction of change and gradually alter the institutional framework. He then explains how institutional development may lead to a path-dependent pattern of development. In the final part of the book, North explains the implications of this analysis for economic theory and economic history.
