An international and historical look at how parenting choices change in the face of economic inequality
Parents everywhere want their children to be happy and do well. Yet how parents seek to achieve this ambition varies enormously. For instance, American and Chinese parents are increasingly authoritative and authoritarian, whereas Scandinavian parents tend to be more permissive. Why? Love, Money, and Parenting investigates how economic forces and growing inequality shape how parents raise their children. From medieval times to the present, and from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden to China and Japan, Matthias Doepke and Fabrizio Zilibotti look at how economic incentives and constraints--such as money, knowledge, and time--influence parenting practices and what is considered good parenting in different countries.
Through personal anecdotes and original research, Doepke and Zilibotti show that in countries with increasing economic inequality, such as the United States, parents push harder to ensure their children have a path to security and success. Economics has transformed the hands-off parenting of the 1960s and '70s into frantic, overscheduled activity. Growing inequality has also resulted in an increasing "parenting gap" between richer and poorer families, raising the disturbing prospect of diminished social mobility and fewer opportunities for children from certain backgrounds. In nations with less economic inequality, such as Sweden, the stakes are less high, and social mobility is not under threat. Doepke and Zilibotti discuss how investments in early childhood development and the design of education systems factor into the parenting equation, and how economics can help shape policies that will contribute to the ideal of equal opportunity for all.
Love, Money, and Parenting presents an engrossing look at the economics of the family in the modern world.

Описание: The National Bolshevik Party, founded in the mid-1990s by Eduard Limonov and Aleksandr Dugin, began as an attempt to combine radically different ideologies. In the years that followed, Limonov, Dugin, and the movements they led underwent dramatic shifts. The two leaders eventually became political adversaries, with Dugin and his organizations strongly supporting Putin's regime while Limonov and his groups became part of the liberal opposition. To illuminate the role of these right-wing ideas in contemporary Russian society, Fabrizio Fenghi examines the public pronouncements and aesthetics of this influential movement. He analyzes a diverse range of media, including novels, art exhibitions, performances, seminars, punk rock concerts, and even protest actions. His interviews with key figures reveal an attempt to create an alternative intellectual class, or a "counter-intelligensia." This volume shows how certain forms of art can transform into political action through the creation of new languages, institutions, and modes of collective participation.

The Cantong qi is the main text of Taoist Internal Alchemy (Neidan). In addition to Taoist masters and adepts, it has also attracted the attention of philosophers, cosmologists, poets, literati, calligraphers, philologists, and bibliophiles. No less than 38 commentaries written through the end of the 19th century are extant, and dozens of texts found in the Taoist Canon and elsewhere are related to it. The present book is the most complete guide available in any language to this vast literature.
The book is divided into two main parts. Part 1 contains a catalogue of extant and lost commentaries, essays, and related texts, listing altogether about 150 works with details on their authors, editions, and reprints. Part 2 contains a survey of the textual tradition of the Cantong qi, focused on the composition and contents of about 40 major texts. A final index of authors, editors, titles, and editions facilitates the use of the book.
This book is a companion to the complete translation of the Cantong qi published by same author, entitled The Seal of the Unity of the Three: A Translation and Study of the Cantong qi, the Source of the Taoist Way of the Golden Elixir (Golden Elixir Press, 2011).

The topic of ocean pollution and the impact our modern lifestyles have on the environment is nothing new.
What "Be Ocean" brings to the table is a deepened respect for the ocean and the connection we humans share with this vast and vital ecosystem.
In recent years, author Joe Pregadio, a lifelong Florida surfer, has experienced a powerful awakening. Now he is sharing his journey so that more people will join him in recognizing how destructive our culture of consumerism is-and how taking action, which can be as simple as beach cleaning, can help preserve marine life.
Speaking to surfers who might falsely assume that their lifestyle is "free," along with other ocean enthusiasts, environmentalists, and those seeking personal growth through inner reflection and deeper connection, "Be Ocean" encourages each of us to take personal responsibility for the health of our planet.
Most importantly, this book proposes a federal bill to raise funds for ocean advocacy projects.

Описание: Joachim lives in a huge metropolis, in London, today. A few years ago, he lived in another world... a very small village in Southern Spain. The place where he was born and raised. Two different worlds, nothing strange. The strange thing is that Joachim, today, feels like an alien in both of them. Why? He still loves to do something that most of the people, including his best friends, don't do anymore, in both of the worlds. A simple human habit in danger of extinction. He misses this something so much... that he is, almost, losing the hope to be able to do it again on this planet. He misses this something so much... that he almost convinces himself that he has new friends, new best friends, not real ones, who replaced those of flesh and blood. Will anyone understand him? Will someone help him save the ""human"" world? Who will comfort him? His best friends...?
