Emmy Arnold was born in 1883 in Riva, Latvia, to a prominent family of academics.

In 1920 the couple left their Berlin home and founded a rural commune that still exists in the Bruderhof, and as a Christian communal movement in the USA, UK and Australia. This is a biography and history of Emmy Arnold’s life and work.

Drop that quotation/sample/collage, sir! An enlightening, amusing, and frightening look at how the growth of intellectual property law is making us all less free to say and think what we want.In 1998 university professor and professional art prankster Kembrew McLeod trademarked the phrase "freedom of expression" as a joke, an amusing if dark way to comment on how intellectual property law is increasingly being used to fence off the culture and restrict the way we’re allowed to express ideas. But what’s happened in recent years to intellectual property law is no joke and has had re

In FY 2003, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) spent nearly $7 billion on transportation, travel, and relocation services from commercial enterprises. Given a continuing need to make the most of existing resources, including those used for transportation, the U.S. Transportation Command (TRANSCOM) asked the RAND Corporation to conduct a spend analysis of transportation purchases. This analysis of combined individual contracting action report (DD350) and PowerTrack (PT) data indicates that DoD has additional opportunities to leverage transportation spending, particularly where it uses tenders

From the author of the acclaimed Good Muslim, Bad Muslim, this is the first analysis of the crisisin Darfur to consider the events of the last few years within the context of Sudan’s history, andto critically examine the efficacy of the world’s response to the crisis.Illuminating the deeply rooted causes of the current conflict, Mahmood Mamdani explains how British colonialism tribalised Darfur, dividing its population into so-called ‘native’ and ‘settler’tribes, and creating homelands for the former at the expense of the latter. A severe drought triggered a civil war between these

The U.S. Government has recently issued seven major studies that together put forth a comprehensive blueprint for major global changes in U.S. national security strategy, defense plans, and diplomacy. These seven studies are brought together in this illuminating book, which portrays their individual contents and complex interrelationships and evaluates their strengths and shortfalls. It argues that while these studies are well-written, cogently argued, and articulate many valuable innovations for the Department of Defense, Department of State, and other government agencies, all of them leave l
