A collection of four films directed by Danny Boyle. '127 Hours' (2010) traces the true story of trapped hiker Aron Ralston's fight for survival. Setting out alone and telling no-one where he's going, Ralston (James Franco) begins a hiking expedition in the mountains of Utah. Young, and with a zest for life, he takes rock-climbing in his stride, fearing nothing, with a permanent smile on his face. Soon after crossing paths with fellow hikers Kristi (Kate Mara) and Megan (Amber Tamblyn), however, Ralston becomes trapped in a remote canyon when a falling boulder crushes his arm. Over the following days, and with nobody to hear his calls for help, Ralston undergoes a gruelling fight for survival that tests his spirit to the limits, and ultimately decides whether he lives or dies. The thriller '28 Days Later' (2002) follows what could happen after a viral attack, with the virus so deadly that within seconds the infected person is taken over by a murderous rage, permanently. After 28 days there is only a handful of non-infected survivors, but the virus is not the only thing they have to contend with... In the futuristic thriller 'Sunshine' (2007) it's 50 years from now and the sun is on its way out, threatening mass destruction here on Earth. It falls to eight sexy astronauts (including Cillian Murphy, Rose Byrne, Michelle Yeoh and Chris Evans) who have been dispatched to the heart of the solar system in a ship called, ominously, the Icarus II - to kickstart the sputtering star. Finally, in the multi-award winning 'Slumdog Millionaire' (2008), Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) is an 18-year-old street kid from the slums of Mumbai who has managed to get through to the final round on the Indian version of 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'? But how can a young man from his background of poverty have acquired the knowledge to be only one correct answer away from winning 20 million rupees? With only one more question to be asked, however, the dream turns to nightmare. As the hooter sounds to signal the end of the show, Jamal is arrested and accused of cheating. Nobody believes that he could really know all of the answers he has given. As Jamal tells the story of his life to the police, the reasons for his success begin to appear. Will Jamal be freed to hear the final question and, if so, will he know the answer?

This book contains a story and several other things. The other things might be connected with the story, or they might not; they might be connected to stories that haven't appeared yet . . . Two years after the conclusion of The Amber Spyglass, Lyra and her daemon Pantalaimon sit high on the roof of Jordan College, gazing down on the streets of Oxford. But their peace is shattered by a flock of enraged starlings, who seem intent on knocking another bird out of the sky - a bird that Lyra and Pan quickly realise is a witch's daemon. The daemon carries worrying tidings of a terrible sickness spreading in the north, and claims that only Lyra can help him - but is he really friend, or foe? Illustrated throughout with exquisite wood-cut engravings by John Lawrence, this beautifully packaged story also contains an extract of Pullman's second short story set in the His Dark Materials world, Once Upon a Time in the North, a map and other missives that seem to have slipped from Lyra's world into our own.

A mesmerising episode from the universe of His Dark Materials and The Book of Dust, giving us an extraordinary insight into this world and its characters.

When Lyra is studying at Oxford University, she comes across the story of Lee Scoresby and Iorek Byrnisson's first meeting, many years ago, along with much evidence of the adventure that brought them together.

She discovers that when a young Texan balloonist Lee came down to earth in the harbour of an Arctic town in the North, little did he realise that he is about to be caught in a war between the residents of the town and the huge arctic bears that also live there.

And when Lee meets one of these bears - Iorek - for the first time, they cement a friendship that will continue throughout their lives, as the tensions in the town threaten to erupt ...

Another wonderful tale from a master story-teller, which includes beautiful illustrations and maps.

A wonderful new episode from the world of Philip Pullman's bestselling trilogy, His Dark Materials. A small bundle of material has somehow slipped between Lyra's universe and our own.

We find Lyra with her daemon Pantalaimon, a couple of years after the end of The Amber Spyglass, sitting on the roofs of Oxford. She sees a bird, the daemon of a witch, a storm petrel flying towards her pursued by a huge and angry flock of starlings. And gradually a mystery unfolds…

The book is fully illustrated with intricate maps and other ephemera from Lyra's universe, and includes a specially printed three-colour pull out maps of Lyra's Oxford. This publication could have come from a parallel universe…

The Prophet of Modern Constitutional Liberalism - John Stuart Mill and the Supreme Court (Hardcover): John Lawrence Hill The Prophet of Modern Constitutional Liberalism - John Stuart Mill and the Supreme Court (Hardcover)
John Lawrence Hill
R2,517 Discovery Miles 25 170 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

John Stuart Mill is the father of modern liberalism. His most remembered work, On Liberty, which was published in 1859, changed the course of the liberal tradition. What is less well-known is that his ideas have profoundly influenced the American constitutional rights tradition of the latter half of the twentieth century. Mill's 'harm principle' inspired the constitutional right to privacy recognized in Griswold v Connecticut, Roe vs Wade and other cases. His defense of freedom of expression influenced Justices Holmes, Brandeis, Douglas, Brennan and others and led to greatly expanded freedom of speech in the twentieth century. Finally, Mill was an ardent feminist whose last important work, The Subjection of Women, was a full-scale and, for its time, radical defense of complete gender equality. This is a book for lawyers who want to understand the intellectual origins of modern constitutional rights, and for political philosophers interested in the constitutional implications of Mill's conception of freedom.

They generate fear, suspicion, and--above all--fascination. Secret societies thrive among us, yet they remain shrouded in mystery. Their secrecy suggests, to many, sacrilege or crime, and their loyalties are often accused of undermining governments and tipping the scales of justice. The Freemasons, for example, hold more seats of power in the U.S. government than any other organization. No fewer than sixteen presidents have declared their Masonic affiliation, and there may have been more. Secret societies have infiltrated pop culture as well. Celebrity members of Kabbalah include Madonna, Demi Moore, and Elizabeth Taylor, among others.

From the Mafia and the Yakuza to the Priory of Sion, Skull and Bones and the Templars, Reynolds offers an illuminating and entertaining exploration of the stories--confirmed and fabricated--that surround these societies, as well as provides detailed information on their origins, initiations, rituals, and secret signs. Dispelling myths and providing gripping revelations--such as a direct historical link between the Assassins of the Middle Ages and today's Al Qaeda--"Secret Societies" gives us a smart, surprising look at the best known and often least understood covert organizations.

First published in 1999. This book will help professions and professionals to identify their contribution to society and to understand the argument in which they must engage if they are to justify their conduct. Because of their specialized expertise and power, the task is both difficult and pressing. The work is divided into two parts. Part 1 discusses the concepts 'ethics' and 'professional conduct', indicating their dimensions and contested nature. In each case, following examination and analysis of relevant literature, a conceptual framework or model is proposed for locating instances of, in turn, ethics and professional conduct. In part 2, the model of ethical choice is used to discuss the ethical justification of professional conduct in the various forms, locations, and stages provided by its social setting. In this way, it provides grounding arguments for relevant action by professionals and others dealing with professionals. The book concludes with a proposal for a national standing commission on the professions.
