The Principles God Respects
HK$ 37.00 HK$ 41.00
Kobo

The Principles God Respects: Living by Faith is the Key to SuccessAnd without faith it is impossible to please God because anyone who comes to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him (Hebrews 11:6 NIV).Whether you are a young believer or have walked with the Lord for years, God expects you to walk in faiththat is, to walk according to the principles God sets forth in Hebrews 11:6. The important idea to remember here is to believe God exists and to keep Him foremost in your mind and actions. He cares for you, but at the same time, unless you exercise faith (trust and confidence) in Him and His Word, your Christian life will not prosper as it should. Although there are many ways you can live for the Lord and serve Him, unless you perform these acts by faith, they wont count for much in your Christian life. In fact, Hebrews 11:6 spells out what God requires of us: that is, to live and walk by faith. The great reformer, Martin Luther, discovered this truth back in 1517 when God showed him how to obtain peace with God. Luther was a Catholic monk who spent hours on his knees trying to find forgiveness for his sins. Then, the Lord revealed Romans 1:17 to him: The just shall live by faith. From that moment on, Luther knew his sins were forgiven and he had peace with God.

The Sexy Angelina Jolie Biography and Career
HK$ 36.00
Kobo

Angelina Jolie is an Oscar-winning actress who has become popular by taking on the title role in the "Lara Croft" series of blockbuster movies. Off-screen, Jolie has become prominently involved in international charity projects, especially those involving refugees. Angelina got a major break in 1999 when she won a leading role in the successful feature The Bone Collector (1999), starring alongside Denzel Washington. In that same year, Jolie gave a tour de force performance in Girl, Interrupted (1999) playing opposite Winona Ryder. The movie was a true story of women who spent time in a psychiatric hospital. Jolie's role was reminiscent of Jack Nicholson's character in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975), the role which won Nicholson his first Oscar. In 2004, Jolie began filming Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005) with co-star Brad Pitt. The film became a major box office success. There were rumors that Pitt and Jolie had an affair while filming "Smith". Jolie and Pitt announced in early 2006 that they would have a child together, and Jolie gave birth to daughter Shiloh that May.

The Road to Assisi: The Essential Biography of St. Francis
HK$ 71.00 HK$ 89.00
Kobo

He conversed with both the Pope and the sultan. He transformed a taste for fine things and troubadour poetry into greater loves for poverty and joyful devotion to God. He never intended to found a traditional religious "movement," but nevertheless, he did. As he died, his brothers had to guard him closely in fear that someone would try to snatch the body of this living saint. Who was Francis of Assisi? Where did he come from and what can we learn from his life? Paul Sabatier (1858-1928), a French Protestant and the first modern biographer of St. Francis, sought to find the man beneath the layers of myth and legend. Sabatier portrayed a fully human Francis, much like each of us in our awkwardness, insecurities, and fear, but also a gentle mystic and passionate reformer who desired to live as Jesus taught his disciples. The Road to Assisi presents Sabatier s biography for today s twenty-first century reader. With helpful explanations and annotations by Jon M. Sweeney, Sabatier s narrative is supplemented with the insights of many other scholars and writers, from Bonaventure and Dante to G.k. Chesterton and Umberto Eco.

The 7 Principles of Stress
HK$ 120.00 HK$ 150.00

Ori Hofmekler, acclaimed author of The Warrior Diet and one of the first proponents of intermittent fasting, challenges conventional wisdom about diet, fitness, and anti-aging with a new approach to health that uses stress to live longer, stay fit, and ward off fat. Supported by cutting-edge research, this book redefines the term "nutrition" as it reveals the stress-mimicking nutrients that yield the same benefits as fasting and exercising. At the core of the book is the biology of stress and the way it affects key aspects of life from feeding and sexual behavior to mental and physical performance. Hofmekler demonstrates that that there is a thin line between beneficial stress and harmful stress, and shows how to put knowledge of the difference into powerful practice. His book is a call to action-a manifesto of living life to its utmost evolutionary potential, under stress, as nature intended.

The Principles of Natural and Politic Law
HK$ 71.00 HK$ 89.00
Kobo

The year 1694 saw the death of Samuel Pufendorf, who, with Hugo Grotius, was the foremost representative of the modern tradition of natural law theory, and the birth of Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui, who helped transform the tradition and convey it to new generations*As professor of natural law in Geneva, Burlamaqui used Pufendorf's works on natural law but taught and wrote on the subject in the vernacular, not in the traditional university Latin. By making natural jurisprudence more accessible, Burlamaqui helped make it part of civic education. Burlamaqui intended his writings to defend a middle road between the two main rival traditions in early modern natural law theory, that deriving from Leibniz and Wolff and that from Pufendorf and Barbeyrac. In fact, he seems closer to the former. The basis of this version of The Principles of Natural and Politic Law is Thomas Nugent's 1763 English translation, which became a standard textbook at Cambridge and at many premier American colleges, including Princeton, Harvard, and the University of Pennsylvania. The first scholarly work on Burlamaqui was written by an American, M. Ray Forrest Harvey, who in 1937 argued that Burlamaqui was well known among America's Founding Fathers and that his writings exerted considerable influence upon the American constitutional system. In his introduction, Nugent said of Burlamaqui: "His singular beauty consists in the alliance he so carefully points out between ethics and jurisprudence, religion and politics, after the example of Plato and Tully, and the other illustrious masters of antiquity."Jean-Jacques Burlamaqui (1694-1748) was a Swiss jurist. His chief works are Principes du droit naturel (Principles of Natural Law) (1747) and Principes du droit politique (Principles of Political Law) (1751).Petter Korkman is a Fellow at the Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies and is a Postdoctoral Researcher in Philosophy at the Academy of Finland.

About THE Book Kobe Bean Bryant is an American professional basketball player. More specifically, he is a shooting guard (#24) for the Los Angeles Lakers and has been since 1996. Bryant is a great basketball player and some argue that he's one of the best that ever played. Over the span of time that Bryant has been with the Lakers, the team has gone on to win five championships. He is best known for his offensive skills but has also made his mark on the defensive side of basketball. His career has included some scandal on and off the court. Most notably, Bryant's ongoing "sibling rivalry" with Shaquille O'Neal got pretty heated in the 2003-2004 season. That season ended with the Lakers losing the NBA Finals and O'Neal leaving the Lakers. Bryant has also faced scandal in his marriage and personal life. In 2003, Bryant was arrested based on allegations that he had sexually assaulted a 19 year old hotel employee.

Myth : A Biography Of Belief
HK$ 135.00 HK$ 141.00
Kobo

Joseph Campbell wrote that mythology is "the wonderful song of the soul's high adventure." In Myth, David Leeming considers the role this "wonderful song" has to play in a world increasingly dependent on scientific and technical information. Exploring classic works such as the Song of Songs, the Tao Te Ching, the Rg Veda, the New Testament, and the Indonesian myth of Hainuwele, Myth reveals the cultural energies that ancient "mythmakers" sought to corral in their creations. Leeming argues that myths are, by definition, evolving creations that live on in the work of modern-day "mythmakers" such as W.b. Yeats, Virginia Woolf, and Albert Einstein. Leeming provides an engaging new outlook on the role of myth in the works of these and other contemporary artists and scientists. The similarities between modern concepts like the "Big Bang" and ancient myths of creation illustrate our continuing need to confront the mysteries of existence by way of metaphor and narrative. Leeming suggests that myth and factual knowledge do not negate, but complement each other. Whether it is the "American Dream," alien abduction, or belief in virgin birth and resurrection, these "living myths" play a very therapeutic role in the development of a healthy society. In Myth: A Biography of Belief, David Leeming shows that myths are still a fitting way to capture "the soul's high adventure.

From Values to Action: The Four Principles of Values-Based Leadership
HK$ 160.00

Silver Medal Winner, Business and Leadership, 2012 Nautilus Book Awards Respected former Ceo, professor, and speaker examines what it takes to become a values-based leader In this highly-anticipated book, Harry Kraemer argues that today's business environment demands values-based leaders who, in "doing the right thing," deliver outstanding and lasting results. The journey to becoming a values-based leader starts with self-reflection. He asks, "If you are not self-reflective, how can you know yourself? If you do not know yourself, how can you lead yourself? If you cannot lead yourself, how can you lead others?" Kraemer identifies self-reflection as the first of four principles that guide leaders to make choices that honor their values and candidly recounts how these principles helped him navigate some of the toughest challenges he faced in his career. Offers a framework for adopting the principles of values-based leadership-self-reflection, balance, true self-confidence, and genuine humility-to lead organizations effectively Based on Kraemer's popular Kellogg MBA course on values-based leadership A recognized expert in values-based leadership, Kraemer is a sought after speaker on the subject Lively and engaging, Kraemer's book comes at a critical time when true leadership in every facet of society is desperately needed.

Principles of Pragmatics
HK$ 588.00 HK$ 653.00
Kobo

Over the years, pragmatics - the study of the use and meaning of utterances to their situations - has become a more and more important branch of linguistics, as the inadequacies of a purely formalist, abstract approach to the study of language have become more evident. This book presents a rhetorical model of pragmatics: that is, a model which studies linguistic communication in terms of communicative goals and principles of 'good communicative behaviour'.In this respect, Geoffrey Leech argues for a rapprochement between linguistics and the traditional discipline of rhetoric. He does not reject the Chomskvan revolution of linguistics, but rather maintains that the language system in the abstract - i.e. the 'grammar' broadly in Chomsky's sense - must be studied in relation to a fully developed theory of language use. There is therefore a division of labour between grammar and rhetoric, or (in the study of meaning) between semantics and pragmatics. The book's main focus is thus on the development of a model of pragmatics within an overall functional model of language. In this it builds on the speech avct theory of Austin and Searle, and the theory of conversational implicature of Grice, but at the same time enlarges pragmatics to include politeness, irony, phatic communion, and other social principles of linguistic behaviour.

That's what I've learnt and that's what I want to show other people, that bravery pays off." - Deborah Feldman Deborah Feldman was born and raised in a strictly orthodox and cloistered Satmar Hasidic community in New York. Her first book, a memoir titled Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots, was published by Simon and Schuster in 2012.

They raised her, with the help of numerous overbearing and unkind aunts, until she got married. As Deborah details in her memoir, she was a naturally inquisitive child, curious about life beyond the boundaries of the insulated life within her ultra-orthodox community. During her childhood, she would obtain banned copies of secular fiction from authors like Louis May Alcott and Jane Austen. She would tear off the front covers and hide them inside her Jewish textbook to smuggle them into class. Her grandfather Zeidy was particularly strict, insisti

Charlie Sheen: A Biography
HK$ 27.00
Kobo

About THE Book It was a cool April 30th night in 2011. I was sitting in the audience of the San Francisco Masonic Auditorium waiting for the guest speaker to make his appearance. My peers thought he was a crazy man ranting nonsensically for hours. He was a troll feeding off the attention we give him whether we agree or disagree with his postings on Twitter or with the bizarre statements he makes in interviews. His earlier speaking engagements were not well received so I was rather shocked that I found myself shelling $60 on what I expected to be a mediocre show. I could have just bought a "Winning, Duh?" T-shirt online instead and saved myself some money while living through this phase of celebrity American pop culture. Finally, the man took the stage. His name was Charlie Sheen and he was recently fired from his lovely acting job in Two and a Half Men. He looked haggard and seemed to be fueled on coffee and vodka. If it weren't for his pre-existing celebrity status, I would have mistaken him for a casual guest lecturer from my university. But Charlie Sheen knew how to win over his audience from the start. He wore a San Francisco Giants jersey in San Francisco while speaking to a San Francisco audience. He announced that proceeds from merchandise sales would help the beaten Giants fan Bryan Stow. The gesture alone was enough to let the man speak his mind with a limited amount of heckling. As it turned out, there really wasn't much in his mind that hasn't already been said online or in interviews. He talked about his love of baseball and how he would like to do a third Major League movie and would want to include Giants pitcher Brian Wilson. I knew that while Charlie did want to continue his baseball comedy franchise, the inclusion of Brian Wilson was purely to appeal to the audience. Had he been in Chicago, he would have said he would include the Cub's pitcher. He ranted about how horrible it was to work with Chuck Lorre on Two and a Half Men and how getting fired

The First Casualty: A Memoir from the Front Lines of the Global W
HK$ 215.00
The Co-op

In a world where the first casualty of war is truth; journalism has become the new battleground.Peter Greste spent two decades reporting from the front line in the world’s most dangerous countries before making headlines himself following his own incarceration in an Egyptian prison. Charged with threatening national security; and enduring a sham trial; solitary confinement and detention for 400 days; Greste himself became a victim of the new global war on journalism.Wars have always been about propaganda but today’s battles are increasingly between ideas; and the media has become part of the battlefield. Extremists have staked a place in news dissemination with online postings; and journalists have moved from being witnesses to the struggle to a means by which the war is waged – which makes them a target. Having covered conflicts in Afghanistan; Iraq and Somalia; as well as having spent time in prison in Egypt; Greste is extremely well placed to describe in vivid detail what effect this has on the nature of reporting and the mind of the reporter. Based on extensive interviews and research; Greste shows how this war on journalism has spread to the West; not just in the murders at the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo or the repressions of Putin’s Russia; but Australia’s metadata laws and Trump’s phony war on ‘fake news’.In this courageous; compelling; vital account Greste unpicks the extent to which modern investigative journalism is under threat; and the fraught quest – and desperate need – for truth in the age of terrorism.

On First Principles
HK$ 177.00 HK$ 221.00

Origen's On First Principles is a foundational work in the development of Christian thought and doctrine: it is the first attempt in history at a systematic Christian theology. For over a decade it has been out of print with only expensive used copies available; now it is available at an affordable price and in a more accessible format. On First Principles is the most important surviving text written by third-century Church father, Origen. Origen wrote in a time when fundamental doctrines had not yet been fully articulated by the Church, and contributed to the very formation of Christianity. Readers see Origen grappling with the mysteries of salvation and brainstorming how they can be understood. This edition presents G.w. Butterworth's trusted translation in a new, more readable format, retains the introduction by Henri de Lubac, and includes a new foreword by John C. Cavadini. As St. Gregory of Nazianzus, Doctor of the Church, wrote: "Origen is the stone on which all of us were sharpened."

During the last decade, modern technologies have made a revolutionary change in developmental biology. The molecular and cellular processes in live embryos can now be visualized thanks to technologies using fluorescent proteins. The whole genome information of a wide range of animal species has now become available, confirming the common principles that operate in every species. These and other advances in our understanding of the developmental processes during embryogenesis and tissue regeneration have put forward new principles. Those new principles will also be important in the stem cell biology, branched from developmental biology, in order to generate a particular tissue by manipulating stem cells. This book is planned to introduce these new principles to readers who are working in developmental biology and/or stem cell biology fields, with an emphasis on genetic and cellular processes.

Fair and Equitable Treatment and the Fabric of General Principles
HK$ 965.00 HK$ 1,073.00
Kobo

This book moves from the circumstance whereby currently the obligation to providefair and equitable treatment (Fet) to foreign investments is included in the majority ofinternational investment agreements and has proved to be the most invoked standard ininvestor-State arbitration. Hence, it is no overstatement to describe this standard as thebasic norm of international investment law. Yet both its meaning and normative basiscontinue to be shrouded in ambiguity and, as a consequence, to inspire a considerablenumber of interpretations by legal writers. The book's precise aim is to unravel suchambiguity, arguing from the idea that FET has become part of the fabric of general internationallaw, but has done so by means of a source somewhat neglected in legal doctrine. This being the category of general principles peculiar to a certain field of internationallaw, i.e. those principles having their own foundations in the international legal orderitself, but which, through the mediation of the judge, end up being shaped accordingto the features typical of a specific normative field. The book, as well as having a solidtheoretical backdrop as its basis, offers a careful and critical analysis of pertinent caselaw, and will prove useful to both scholars and practitioners. Fulvio Maria Palombino is Professor of International Law at the Law Department of the University of Naples Federico II and a member of the Executive Board of the EuropeanSociety of International Law.

A comparison of leasing according to the treatment of different accounting principles and diverse treatment in loacal GAAP s of major industrial countries
HK$ 64.00
Kobo

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Jura - Zivilrecht / Handelsrecht, Gesellschaftsrecht, Kartellrecht, Wirtschaftsrecht, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Leasing is more and more understood as a modern form of financing of various assets, both in the commercial and the private sector. Leases have now become an integral part of economic life. With their multiple creative possibilities and variations, leases are an equitable alternative to buying and renting for companies. The diversity of different forms of leasing, and the fact that there is no uniform lease contract as a reference, results in lease accounting being one of the most difficult areas of accounting under almost all jurisdictions. [1] This diversity leads to an accounting system for leasing business with different possibilities to allocate positions in the P & L and balance sheet. Due to the lack of specific rules, leasing accounting is mostly based on general accounting principles. [2] In Germany, relevant tax decrees have impact on the local accounting. Leases are, in principle, not fixed on legal contract types, and this allows temporary grant of use and utilization of liquidity-friendly financing alternatives in the balance-sheet. Since most major accounting systems presuppose exclusion of pending transactions from the balance sheet, [3] companies used contracts for grant of use, such as lease, deliberately to influence the accounting. For example, sale and leaseback transactions are used to reduce the balance-sheet debt, though the physical property mapping has not changed. [4] The current lease accounting under Ifrs 17 of the Iasb is to be understood as a reaction to the existing situation in the various accounting systems. The aim of the standard setter was to capture the major part of the grant of use in the balance sheet. All postings, which change the asset allocation similar to an investment, should also be accounted as such. [5] The concept of economic ownership divides

Recent years have witnessed considerable consolidation between the disciplines of environmental and ecological economics at research level, but until now textbooks in the area have done little to reflect this. Ahmed Hussen's book is to date the only one to reconcile the two standpoints. The central focus of the book will continue to be on this systematic integration of both mainstream and ecological approaches to environmental economics, and an acknowledgement that enduring solutions to major contemporary environmental challenges can be obtained through studies based on a well-conceived and balanced interdisciplinary approach. However, this third edition also contains much that is new. Chiefly, brand new chapters appear covering the following topics: The economics of climate changeThe economics of biodiversity and ecosystem services'Green' accounting and alternative economic and social indicators of sustainabilityThe business case for environmental sustainabilityAn Appendix that provides a brief historical account of the development of ecological economicsThe result is a comprehensive introduction to the main facets of environmental and ecological economics - a text that boldly refuses to put up barriers between disciplines and takes a holistic approach to vital issues. This student-friendly textbook contains a variety of study tools including learning points, boxed features, case studies, revision questions and discussion questions, and an Appendix that provides students with a review of basic economic principles relevant to the study of the environment and its management.

HK$ 78.00

Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, Meteorology for Army Aviators (FM 1-230) provides Army aviation personnel with the general principles of modern meteorology required to assist them in planning and conducting day-to-day flight operations. It will also be useful as a supplemental text and a ready reference. It covers theoretical aspects of meteorological phenomena, the weather facilities available at airfields, severe weather warnings, types of forecasts, and information which will enable Army aviation personnel to interpret and evaluate weather conditions. Although the general information contained in this manual is required background information for weather forecasters, the manual does not include operational forecasting techniques. Army aviators must be knowledgeable of existing and forecasted weather conditions prior to commencing a flight. The aviator must have a thorough knowledge of the meteorological conditions and factors which produce the weather. Although current navigational systems and flight techniques make flight into instrument meteorological conditions possible, flight into hazardous weather conditions, such as icing conditions that could exist in cloudless air, should be avoided whenever possible. Weather in the combat zone is a major factor in the decisions of the commander; and it can significantly influence the outcome of the battle. Army aviation units, as an essential part of the combined arms team, must be able to operate successfully in different weather and terrain environments. The high threat posed by the enemy on the battlefield makes it necessary to conduct combat missions in the terrain flight mode to avoid detection by electronic means and destruction by highly sophisticated air defense weapons. Under these conditions, adverse weather can impair mission success and endanger aviation personnel and equipment. Part One. Weather Principles AND Theory * Chapter 1. Introduction * Chapter 2.

Layer cake - the representation of London in Penelope Lively's 'City of the Mind' and Peter Ackroyd's 'London: The Biography'
HK$ 99.00 HK$ 104.00
Kobo

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Paderborn, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: As history is inevitably constructed, fact and fiction lay very closely together. Furthermore, history cannot be but a subjective notion since every person, including historians, has different experiences and interests. Thus, the history of a place or an event is similar to a layer cake: it consists of the memories of all people who are in some way involved. This is the motif of the two works presented in this analysis: City of the Mind and London: A Biography. The layer cake in both Penelope Lively's novel and Peter Ackroyd's historical tract is London. Lively discovers the many strata of the capital by following the main character of her novel, Matthew Halland, around London. Ackroyd's work is as non-fictional as history can get. Similarly to Lively's novel, his structure, however, is not chronological but thematical. On the basis of these two works, a novel and a non-fictional text, this paper pretends to refute the idea of a static history and show in what way Lively's and Ackroyd's London is a 'city of the mind' consisting of layers. To get a better understanding of historiography and its controversies, I will first give a short theoretical overview over the subject. The next step will be to present the authors of the works in order to show their familiarity with history. The subsequent analysis of the representation of London will focus on the idea of London as a layer cake as it manifests itself in both Lively's novel and Ackroyd's book.

Journeys Through Darkness: A Biography
HK$ 25.00
Kobo

Photographer Kurt Weston sees HIV as a battle, in which he needs to be a warrior willing to fight the virus that is destroying him. Diagnosed in 1991, the award-winning visual artist considers protease inhibitors a life-saving miracle. But, while restoring his health, he also loses most of his eye-sight-diagnosed with CMV retinitis in 1994, he becomes legally blind. The diagnosis devastates him because it takes away his passion and livelihood-photography. Fortunately, he is able to prove that he can photograph again. First challenge is to finish the 1999 calendar for the Asian/Pacific Crossroads. Many challenges later, after attending low vision technology studies at the California Braille Institute and experimenting with his new special equipment, Weston realizes that he can, indeed, photograph. With the help of organizations like the Foundation for Junior Blinds (now known as Junior Blind of America) and California Department of Rehabilitation, he purchases special equipment-handheld telescope, special magnification glasses, and magnification and reading software programs-necessary for him to continue his work. Weston is a firm believer that a person can work through a situation, no matter how challenging and helpless it may seem, and use the experience to help others who find themselves in similar circumstances. This philosophy helps him work off the dilemmas in his own life, while giving his life a deeper sense of meaning. From his perspective, Weston considers art a vehicle through which we can experience the nature of humanity. In today's society consumed by superficial realities, his art goes beyond the body and into a metaphysical dimension, connecting with the viewer on a more profound, spiritual level. Kurt Weston's Blind Vision black-and-white series of self-portraits shows people the physical and emotional impact that visual loss can have on an individual. He prints his images on silver gelatin paper so that they can last forever. He wants future generation

Principles and Applications of Ubiquitous Sensing
HK$ 816.00
Kobo

Applications which use wireless sensors are increasing in number. The emergence of wireless sensor networks has also motivated the integration of a large number of small and lightweight nodes which integrate sensors, processors, and wireless transceivers. Existing books on wireless sensor networks mainly focus on protocols and networks and pay little attention to the sensors themselves which the author believes is the main focus. Without adequate knowledge of sensors as well as how they can be designed, realized and used, books on wireless sensor networks become too theoretical and irrelevant. The purpose of this book is to intimately acquaint readers with the technique of sensing (resistive, capacitive, inductive, magnetic, inertial, etc.) and existing sensor technologies. It also discusses how the sensors are used in a wide application domain and how new sensors can be designed and used in a novel way.

Newcastle The Biography

The story of the city of Newcastle, from its earliest origins in Roman Britain to the present day. Newcastle's history begins with Pons Aelius, a Roman bridge and fort to the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall. The town took its name from the 'new castle' built after the Norman conquest around which a settlement nestled for protection. Its position, as the guardian of the main eastern route between England and Scotland, gave it considerable military significance. The town's great moments, when it was besieged and taken by the Scots in 1642 under General Leslie and when Charles l was imprisoned there, are all recounted in full evocative detail. A central theme is Newcastle's vibrant social and cultural history for this was both an innovative and pleasure-loving society, known its inventiveness and its promotion of the arts and sciences, but also for its robust and occasionally riotous popular culture. A bye-law regulating the dress of apprentices of 1554 inveighed against the gambling and 'typling, danncing and brasenge of harlots' that was said to be characterise the life-style of the apprentices.

The history of moral philosophy has been dominated by attempts to find and defend the correct moral principle or set of principles. However, over the last two decades the assumption that morality can and should be understood in terms of principles has come under attack from several quarters. The most radical attack has come from so-called moral particularists according to whom principles are at best useless and at worst a hindrance to successful moral reasoning and action. Why should - and how can - morality be based on principles? These are the leading questions of this book. Moral Principles offers a historically informed, in-depth examination of the current particularist/generalist debate and presents a novel account of the place of principles in our moral thought and action.

Prince William: A Biography

About THE Book Once upon a time, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, was the world's most eligible bachelor. Over the past few years, he has moved from being the single prince who women all over the world long to be with, to being a married man whose wife those same women envy. As the son of the late Princess Diana, William is second-in-line to the throne after his father, Prince Charles. His royal heritage has seen him obtain the title of the Duke of Cambridge, a prestigious honor that has been awarded to noblemen of royal blood lines for almost 500 years. As a modern prince, William has been educated in schools throughout London that are sought after by those who are members of high society. His university education was completed at St. Andrew's, where he met his wife, Catherine Middleton. Although William has been born into the British Royal Family, he has not shied away from work. Like many princes before him, William has served time in the army, showing his dedication to his queen and country. As a serving member of the Raf, he trained at the Royal Air Force College Cranwell, and has reached the position of flight lieutenant. As a fully trained pilot, William has served in the Falklands, a set of islands situated near Argentina. The move to place William in Argentina was considered to be controversial, in addition to other controversies that surround him. Many of those who work in the media believe that it is thanks to Prince William and Catherine Middleton getting married in 2011, that faith in the British royal family has been restored across the British Commonwealth. The dazzling wedding was watched by over a billion people worldwide, who were all keen to witness a young prince marrying a "commoner." As Miss Middleton was neither of royal or noble heritage, her story struck a chord with women everywhere, who watched her fulfill their dreams of marrying a prince.

Based on years of research on both sides of the Atlantic and scores of personal interviews with Arnold's colleagues, lovers, relatives, childhood companions, friends and rivals, Wendy Leigh's definitive unauthorized biography, "Arnold: The Early Years" reveals a startling portrait of a man who has allowed nothing to stand in the way of his meteoric rise to the top.

I broke all of the stories about him long before anyone was prepared to listen, and I was ultimately vindicated in the end." Focused on Schwarzenegger's early years, "Arnold: The Early Years" is a fascinating roadmap of how one man's talent, drive, bravado, charm, determination, and opportunism have brought him to the upper echelons of Hollywood and American politics- and how those same traits have proven to be his downfall.

David Bowie: A Biography
HK$ 27.00
Kobo

About THE Book Even in the days when he was Davie (or Davy) Jones of the the Kon-Rads, King Bees or the Manish Boys (a few of his early bands) - David Bowie was, and still is, a fully formed, timeless pop artist. Although he always experimented and changed stylistically, he seems to have simply burst into this world as Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, the Thin White Duke, David Bowie, and finally just Mr. Jones - all rolled into one. He is a shimmering chimera changing to reflect what we hope to find, and what we don't expect to find: the romantic troubadour, the glammed outer space messiah, the burnt-out case from another world, the sophisticated, world-weary philosopher, the aging artist facing his own mortality. David Bowie's best known, and most groundbreaking character is Ziggy Stardust. If the trappings of Ziggy Stardust, glam-androgyn, are stripped away, what we have left is simply great pop music. The gender-smashing concept of Ziggy - as stimulating, and some would say, as freeing for society as it was - isn't a bolt out of the blue for us today as it was then. What survives is the music. So the sociological effect of David Bowie's depiction of gender with his character Ziggy Stardust isn't his most valuable contribution to pop music. The music is. Besides his popular success, part of why David Bowie is such a great contributor to late 20th century rock and roll is that the answer to who or what David Bowie is is a reflection of who we are. Like all great artists he shows us aspects of our own imaginations. And in an uncanny way, he has always managed to presage certain trends or events at a time when Western pop culture was changing in a way that in hindsight seems inevitable. At any given time, the shape of the future is unknown. An obvious observation, but one that needs restating in order to place ourselves more fully in the shoes of those who came before us. In 2004, Rolling Stone put David Bowie at number 39 on its "100 Greatest Artists of All Time "
