Summary

John Boyd was a fighter pilot in the Korean War, an instructor at the US Air Force Fighter Weapons School, and arguably America's greatest military thinker of the 20th Century. His concept of the OODA Loop helped guide the US military during two wars against Saddam Hussein's Iraq. This 4000-word 'long essay' was originally prepared for the War in the Modern World program at King's College London by Daniel Ford, an American journalist and historian. Revised 2014. With illustrations, source notes, bibliography, and a chapter from the author's book, A Vision So Noble.

    Bad Blood is an epic gangster thriller in the crime genre which dispenses blood and justice in equal measure and is yet another of Kris Lillyman's stunning, action packed books.
     
    The story focuses on Joe and Sean; boyhood pals so in awe of the London gangsters who have recently infested the post war streets of their bomb ravaged neighbourhood.
     
    Yet they are unaware that their own fathers - the two men they hate most in all the world - are in league with these vicious criminals from the East End.
     
    Upon this devastating realisation, they know only the violence of action will protect the ones they love from the brutal men who have blighted their lives for so long.
     
    So at fourteen, they swear an oath to be blood brothers forever and seal a pact to kill their fathers - the only sure way they can see of saving Joe’s sister and Sean’s mum from certain death.
     
    It is a childish pledge but in years to follow it will come to mean everything. Soon they discover that retribution costs and as a result of their actions Sean and Joe’s lives are set upon a path strewn with tragedy and loss. Along the way they will find success, power and love but they too will come at a price. Spanning thirty years, Bad Blood encompasses the violence of gangland London, the glamorous scandals of Hollywood and the debauched excesses of Las Vegas.

  • Kierkegaard's Writings VIII: Concept of Anxiety: A Simple Psychologically Orienting Deliberation on the Dogmatic Issue of Hereditary Sin - cover

    Kierkegaard's Writings VIII:...

    This edition replaces the earlier translation by Walter Lowrie that appeared under the title The Concept of Dread. Along with The Sickness unto Death, the work reflects from a psychological point of view Søren Kierkegaard's longstanding concern with the Socratic maxim, "Know yourself." His ontological view of the self as a synthesis of body, soul, and spirit has influenced philosophers such as Heidegger and Sartre, theologians such as Jaspers and Tillich, and psychologists such as Rollo May.  
    In The Concept of Anxiety, Kierkegaard describes the nature and forms of anxiety, placing the domain of anxiety within the mental-emotional states of human existence that precede the qualitative leap of faith to the spiritual state of Christianity. It is through anxiety that the self becomes aware of its dialectical relation between the finite and the infinite, the temporal and the eternal.

    The Quartet is an historical account of the debates and events leading up to, during, and immediately following the creation of the Constitution of the United States of America. The quartet is four politicians that played an integral role in the creation, shaping, and implementation of the Constitution and early federal government in the US. These include George Washington, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay.
     
    Each man had some involvement in the American Revolution, which lent credence to the worthiness of their cause and ability to establish a national government. Washington served as the head of the Continental Army. Hamilton served as Washington’s aide de camp and later served as commander of his own troops. Madison was a commissioned colonel of the Orange County militia from Virginia and served on the Continental Congress. Jay also served on the Continental Congress and negotiated the terms of the Treaty of Paris that ended the American Revolutionary War…
