Summary

The book casts light on the early development, challenges, and philosophy of international law and the international jurisprudential process. It brings together foreign, comparative, and international legislative ideas from 1600-1926. It quotes and contains works of some of the great legal theorists, including Gentili, Grotius, Selden, Zouche, Pufendorf, Bijnkershoek, Wolff, Vattel, Martens, Mackintosh, and Wheaton. Even today, almost a century after publication, many of the challenges remain. Therefore, the book is a great account of the history of international law and a reference for topical information.

He writes authoritatively but in a conversational tone. His advice is easy to read, easy to follow, and full of wisdom. In short, practical chapters, Dr. Pfeiffer advises on choosing an ideal place to live, finding a range of satisfying activities, and maintaining an active social life. He also explains how best to maintain one’s health, mental health, wealth, and independence. Other chapters explore the importance of a spiritual life and the value of maintaining an active sexual life. In addition, the author speaks to the value of charitable giving and describes how it is possible to prepare for a good good-bye to life. Filled with illustrative anecdotes and enhanced with a lovely selection of poems, this reassuring book demonstrates how it is possible to direct and control the aging experience.

    From one of the world’s leading nutrition experts, a simplified explanation of probiotics and what they can do for and to the human body.   Despite the fact that people use the term probiotics a lot in the media as well as in everyday life, there appears to be some confusion as to whether probiotics are something that occur naturally in a healthy human gut or “biome,” something that is added to your yogurt, or whether it’s simply a pot of pills that you need to take when you’re ill. Gut Health and Probiotics will take readers on a quest to understand what both probiotics and prebiotics can do for their long term gut health and how this might affect a broad range of body systems from skin health to mental health. Along the way readers will discover how useful probiotics are in both preventing and curing specific ailments, as nutrition educator Jenny Tschiesche explains just how simple it is to feel great from the inside-out.

    Tracing Your Insolvent Ancestors...

    An easy-to-use guide for British family historians tracing ancestry connected with the insolvency system.   Debtors’ prisons are infamous, but very little has been written about the records of those confined within them in London or elsewhere in the country. Even less has been written about the trials of those who were often incarcerated following misfortune or mismanagement rather than criminal intent. That is why Paul Blake’s handbook is so useful for researchers who want to learn about forebears who may have been caught up in the insolvency system.   In a series of information-filled chapters, Blake covers the historical background to the handling of debt and debtors, and bankruptcy and bankrupts. In addition, he describes the courts and procedures faced by both creditors and debtors, and the prisons where so many debtors were confined.   Throughout the book, details are given of the records that researchers can turn to in order to explore the subject for themselves. Many are held at The National Archives, but others are to be found at local record offices around the country.   Paul Blake’s book will be appreciated by local, social and family historians, as well as those with an interest in debtor crime and punishment, and bankrupts in general.

    The following topics are included in this 2-book combo: 
      
      
    Book 1: How do you recognize a narcissist? 
      
    What are the symptoms of narcissism? 
      
    Are there different types of narcissists? 
      
    These and many other questions will be addressed. Narcissism in students, in children, and in others will be laid out and explained in further detail. There are many things to learn about narcissism, so become familiar with it now! 
      
      
      
      
    Book 2: In this guide, we will go over some interesting subtopics related to narcissism, such as the impact of celebrities on narcissists in society, of social media, and other significant influences. 
      
    Also, we’ll go over a small checklist that you can use to see if a narcissist is a threat or not, so you know what to expect. Narcissism is often an issue in politics. Some narcissists are also sociopaths, and some narcissists are just the result of our civilization’s greedy emphasis on monetary values and the showing off of status symbols of wealth. 
      
    And then all of this begs the question: Is narcissism ever beneficial? Or is it always wrong? And if so, to what extend? 
      
    To learn more about these things, simply pick up this book online and start reading or listening.

    A traumatic brain injury is a life-changing event, affecting an individual's lifestyle, ability to work, relationships—even personality. Whatever caused it—car crash, work accident, sports injury, domestic violence, combat—a severe blow to the head results in acute and, often, lasting symptoms. People with brain injury benefit from understanding, patience, and assistance in recovering their bearings and functioning to their full abilities.In The Traumatized Brain, neuropsychiatrists Drs. Vani Rao and Sandeep Vaishnavi—experts in helping people heal after head trauma—explain how traumatic brain injury, whether mild, moderate, or severe, affects the brain. They advise listeners on how emotional symptoms such as depression, anxiety, mania, and apathy can be treated; how behavioral symptoms such as psychosis, aggression, impulsivity, and sleep disturbances can be addressed; and how cognitive functions like attention, memory, executive functioning, and language can be improved. They also discuss headaches, seizures, vision problems, and other neurological symptoms of traumatic brain injury.By stressing that symptoms are real and are directly related to the trauma, Rao and Vaishnavi hope to restore dignity to people with traumatic brain injury and encourage them to ask for help.
