    A revealing account of Polish cooperation with Nazis in WWII—a “grim, compelling [and] significant scholarly study” (Kirkus Reviews).   Between 1942 and 1943, thousands of Jews escaped the fate of German death camps in Poland. As they sought refuge in the Polish countryside, the Nazi death machine organized what they called Judenjagd, meaning hunt for the Jews. As a result of the Judenjagd, few of those who escaped the death camps would survive to see liberation. As Jan Grabowski’s penetrating microhistory reveals, the majority of the Jews in hiding perished as a consequence of betrayal by their Polish neighbors.  Hunt for the Jews tells the story of the Judenjagd in Dabrowa, Tarnowska, a rural county in southeastern Poland. Drawing on materials from Polish, Jewish, and German sources created during and after the war, Grabowski documents the involvement of the local Polish population in the process of detecting and killing the Jews who sought their aid. Through detailed reconstruction of events, “Grabowski offers incredible insight into how Poles in rural Poland reacted to and, not infrequently, were complicit with, the German practice of genocide. Grabowski also, implicitly, challenges us to confront our own myths and to rethink how we narrate British (and American) history of responding to the Holocaust” (European History Quarterly).

    Summary, Analysis & Review of Megyn Kelly's Settle for More by Instaread Preview: In her memoir Settle for More, Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly looks back on her life and describes her winding road to fame and the many obstacles she encountered along the way. From her vantage as one of the most-watched newscasters in the country, the 45-year-old journalist blends autobiographical reflection with harrowing accounts of the harassment she experienced at the hands of Donald Trump and the founder of Fox News, Roger Ailes. Kelly had a mostly happy childhood in upstate New York. She was raised by nurturing parents who encouraged her to be self-sufficient and ambitious. Her first traumatic experience happened in seventh grade when she was suddenly ostracized and bullied by her girlfriends for no discernable reason. It was a short-lived but terrible period that left an emotional scar. Her next trauma occurred at the age of 15, when her father died suddenly of a heart attack.

    Reflections on Violence

    Georges Sorel

    More than a century after Reflections on Violence first appeared (1908) it remains a remarkably controversial essay. The concept of violence as a means to an end (social, religious, political or for aggrandisement) is hugely challenging as a philosophical subject - yet it is, of course, universally (and frequently) pursued. 
     
    The French thinker and political theorist Georges Sorel (1847-1922), fired up by his interest in Marxism and his anger at the injustice of the Dreyfus case, faced this challenge and in the seven chapters of Reflections on Violence he explored the question. It proved sufficiently stimulating over succeeding decades to be espoused by both Marxists and Fascists alike: class struggle, revolution and above all radical change were central to Sorel's thought. 
     
    He acknowledges in his introduction: ‘...the normal development of strikes has included a significant number of acts of violence; but certain learned sociologists seek to disguise a phenomenon that everyone who cares to use his eyes must have noticed.' Widely read (he regarded himself as self-educated), Sorel drew on many sources as he covered the ground, including Nietzsche, Proudhon, Marx, Eduard von Hartmann and Henri Bergson. He espoused a view of ‘myth' as a driving impetus - heroic acts by ‘a whole band of companions' - for change. Confrontation cannot be avoided. It has been suggested that Sorel's regard for unequivocal confrontation was based more on impassioned conviction than direct physical violence, but it may be difficult to slip this past his many calls for ‘direct aggression'. He writes, ‘Proletarian violence, carried on as a pure and simple manifestation of the sentiment of the class struggle, appears thus as a very fine and very heroic thing; it is at the service of the immemorial interests of civilisation; it is not perhaps the most appropriate method of obtaining immediate material advantages, but it may save the world from barbarism.'

    After celebrating St. Patricks Day 2008, 1st Royal Irish Battlegroup deployed to Afghanistans Helmand province as part of 16 Air Assault Brigade.  For six months the Royal Irish fought the Taliban in Helmand in some of the most difficult country on earth.  At the same time the Battlegroup was training the nascent Afghan National Army (ANA) and many of its engagements were alongside Afghan soldiers.  Well trained and with an operational maturity gained from deployments in every year but one since 1998, they were considered the unit in 16 Air Assault Brigade best suited to the critical task of mentoring the ANA.  One company deployed with 2 PARA Battlegroup in the Sangin valley.  Its soldiers saw intense action against the Taliban, especially through the latters use of IEDs (Improvised Explosive Devices).  Another company was given the task of ensuring the safe passage of an additional generator for the Kajaki dam and was involved in heavy fighting while so doing.  TA soldiers from 2 R Irish formed Imjin Company which provided security but also deployed on wider tasks.  Professionalism, high levels of trust and the unique humor of Irish soldiers ensured that they had a successful tour and accomplished their missions. This is the stirring story of a regimental family at war and of those who sustained them, including their remarkable chaplain, Padre Albert Jackson, and the rear party which supported the families, especially those whose fathers or sons suffered injury or death.  Above all, it is the story of a highly professional unit demonstrating its skills to the world and helping make Afghanistan a better place for its people.

    This is a 3-book bundle, which addresses various subtopics, including but not limited to these: 
      
      
    Book 1: Empaths… empathy… sensitivity… what’s the difference? 
    Some people have developed a knack for feeling compassion or empathy for other people. To others, it comes naturally. And to some, it’s an intense gift that has ups and downs, pros and cons that allow them to help others but also become fatigued when they don’t watch themselves. 
      
      
      
    Book 2: Being an empath can be a good thing, but it also comes with some problems. In this book, we’ll address both sides. These factors of being an empath will have an incredible impact on your life.  
      
    For example, we will discuss some tips for raising empathic children. We will point out the three types of empaths, so you can identify with the one that suits your personality most. Additionally, we’ll talk about why emotional empaths usually stay alone or why they feel lonely. At the end of the book, some encouraging thoughts are given to help you cope with the difficulties of life, and to help other empaths. 
      
      
      
      
    Book 3: Why are some people empaths? 
      
    What is the science behind this? 
      
    And why are some empaths more susceptible to addictions? 
      
    These and many other questions will be addressed in this brief guide. On top of that, you will learn more about narcissism versus empathy, how to become a more empathetic spouse, the dangers of social media, healing methods for empaths with traumatic memories, and what the difference is between empathic parenting and “rescue” parenting. All of these topics will help you understand empathy, empaths, and yourself better.  
      
    This is a great treasure of knowledge about human psychology.
