This book analyzes and assesses theories of democracy emanating from studies in a variety of disciplines, and proposes answers to a wide range of questions in moral and political philosophy, philosophy of law and democratic theory. Taken together, these answers constitute the basis for a theory that justifies political democracy.
Steadily rising affluence and greater freedom have brought us more choices, more opportunities, and richer lifestyles than ever before.
However, here is the 'paradox of progress' - that our expectations are greater than ever, that there is never enough time, and that the great majority of us are suffering from 'choice overload'. Life often feels too hectic, too pressured - too complicated.
Would we really want to turn back the clock to simpler times? Absolutely not - today's consumers are richer, healthier, safer and have more freedom than any before them. But to reap the benefitsof progress, consumers need help to cope with the complexities they face. This is the key problem in the lives of the affluent majority, and a prime opportunity for business in the 21st century.
In a book as useful to consumers as it is to business strategists, Willmott and Nelson present in-depth analysis of the complexities of modern consumers' lives, and provide innovative and practical responses for business and marketing strategy.
A definitive ethnological study of the Iroquois' subsistence, religious traditions, laws, and customs.
Originally written in 1976 for his "Paris-New York" exhibition, "Reflection on a Past Life" is painter William N. Copley's (1919-1996) humorous and insightful account of his many bizarre encounters with key Surrealists, such as Man Ray, Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp and Rene Magritte. After inheriting a fortune as a young man, Copley (often known as "CPLY"), used his family wealth to open The Copley Galleries in Beverly Hills shortly after World War II, where he exhibited works by major Surrealist artists. Although the gallery proved to be a financial flop, closing after its first year, Copley secured a place in the annals of art history by bringing Surrealism to Hollywood, as well as with his own painting. This memoir provides a revealing and intimate look at the work and thought processes of Copley's heroes from the frank, engaging perspective of a younger colleague.
