Using declassified documents from Party and State archives in Moscow and St Petersburg and interviews with survivors the authors have produced the most informed and detailed analysis to date of the impact of the siege on the lives and the health of the people of Leningrad.
Bodies: Sex, Violence, Disease, and Death in Contemporary Legend

Bodies: Sex, Violence, Disease, and Death in Contemporary Legend
Publisher: University Press of Mississippi | ISBN: 1578067898 | edition 2005 | PDF | 313 pages | 1,8 mb

In this book Gillian Bennett traces the cultural history of six well-known legends that have been current in Europe and America from medieval times to the present day and have appeared in broadsides, ballads, myths, ancient and modern legends, novels, plays, films, television shows, and in stories told in the oral tradition. The book shows that contemporary legends are not just silly tales which can be dismissed as trivial and "untrue." Good stories though they are and embellished with fantastic details, they reveal much about the concerns and fears of everyday life and demonstrate the limits of knowledge and power in the modern world.

Returning to England from a bombing run in May 1945, flyer Peter Carter's plane is damaged and his parachute ripped to shreds. He has his crew bail out safely, but figures it is curtains for himself. He gets on the radio, and talks to June, a young American woman working for the USAAF, and they are quite moved by each other's voices. Then he jumps, preferring this to burning up with his plane. He wakes up in the surf. It was his time to die, but there was a mixup in heaven. They couldn't find him in all that fog. By the time his "Conductor" catches up with him 20 hours later, Peter and June have met and fallen in love. This changes everything, and since it happened through no fault of his own, Peter figures that heaven owes him a second chance. Heaven agrees to a trial to decide his fate.
Alternate Civilities: Democracy and Culture in China and Taiwan

Alternate Civilities: Democracy and Culture in China and Taiwan
Publisher: Westview Press | pages: 188 | 2001 | ISBN: 0813339316 | PDF | 16,8 mb

Some Asian political leaders and Western academics have recently claimed that China is unlikely to produce an open political system. This claim rests on the idea that “Confucian culture” provides an alternative to Western civil values, and that China lacked the democratic traditions and even the horizontal institutions of trust that could build a civil society. An opposed school of thought is far more optimistic about democracy, because it sees market economies of the kind China has begun to foster as pushing inexorably against authoritarian political control and reproducing Western patterns of change.

The Soul of a Doctor: Harvard Medical Students Face Life and Death

The Soul of a Doctor: Harvard Medical Students Face Life and Death by Susan Pories
2006 | EPUB/MOBI | 248 pages | ISBN-10: 156512507X | English | 497 KB

As Groopman states in his foreword, "each interaction between a doctor and a patient is a story." The moving stories of 44 doctors-in-training collected by two M.D.s (Pories and Harper) and one medical student (Jain), all at Harvard, are accounts written by medical students. Their tales convey lessons both emotional and medical, from learning how to communicate and empathize with those afflicted by illness to ways to ease suffering and loss.
