Ethics for the Real World

release date: Jan 01, 2008
Ethics for the Real World
People often act reflexively when faced with an ethical challenge. The necessity to make a fast decision leaves little time to think clearly. We get distracted by what our colleagues and others expect from us, and we make snap decisions that we regret. While most agree that outright lying, stealing, and harming are wrong, they seem to disagree about smaller compromises. This book argues that it''s better and more satisfying to choose instead of react, to understand distinctions instead of guess what is right for us, and to remain cognizant of the impact of ethical compromise on our effectiveness at work and our personal relationships. The chapters of this book offer lessons and practical tools to help readers: 1. Develop radar to identify the situations where we are forced to make ethical compromises; 2. Understand how to use solid ethical logic and principles to foster clear thinking; 3. Draft and refine a personal code of conduct, and make it practical for everyday use; 4. Go beyond ethical basics to using your personal code as a lever for making more consistent decisions and reducing stress in work and life. Many books about ethics discuss weighty and controversial issues that few of us deal with in daily life--abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, animal rights. While these books are valuable, they are not so much tools for decision making as food for thought. This book, in contrast, focuses on one of ethics'' most insidious problems: our inability to make clear and consistent choices in everyday life. The practical tools and techniques in this book help readers design a set of personal standards, based on sound ethical reasoning, for reducing everyday compromises.

The Life and Times of Miguel Hidalgo Y Costilla (Classic Reprint)

release date: Jul 09, 2015
The Life and Times of Miguel Hidalgo Y Costilla (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Life and Times of Miguel Hidalgo Y Costilla The celebration this year in Mexico of the centennial of the Grito de Dolores has caused those who are interested in Mexican affairs to ask: What was the Grito de Dolores? and who was Hidalgo, that he should be called the Father of Mexican Independence? The answers to these questions that may be obtained from general histories are thoroughly inadequate and wholly unsatisfying at this period, when Mexico is receiving universal attention. Such histories present Hidalgo in the light of an insurrectionist, a fanatic perhaps, who had the temerity to lead a revolt against the regularly constituted Government of one of the Spanish dependencies in America, and whose public career was ended by the defeat of his cause and his own death within a year. They fail to show any relation between his insurrectionary movement and the establishment of a wholly factitious Mexican Independence eleven years later; nor do they reveal a relationship with constitutional government in Mexico, and the rise of a self-conscious commonwealth to a respected place among the nations of the earth.

A History of the Services of the 17th (the Leicestershire) Regiment

release date: Apr 01, 2001
A History of the Services of the 17th (the Leicestershire) Regiment
This regimental history is a revision and continuation up to 1910 of the printed Historical Record of the 17th Foot, published in 1848, by Richard Cannon of the War Office. Cannon produced a series of regimental histories in the mid-nineteenth century. The regiment was raised in 1688 by Colonel Solomon Richards for King James II, but a year later allegiance was switched to William III; its first Battle Honour was Namur, in 1695. The regiment was in N America during the War of Independence, then it was sent to the W Indies in the Wars of the French Revolution. In 1804 it went to India where it remained for twenty years, gaining several battle honours. In 1825 King George IV approved of the regiment bearing on its colours and appointments the figure of the Royal Tiger with the word Hindoostan superscribed, as a lasting testimony of the exemplary conduct of the corps during the period of its service in India, from 1804 to 1823. Hence the regimental nickname The Tigers. It was in the Crimea for 18 months from the end of 1854, and at the Siege of Redan Cpl Philip Smith became the first member of the regiment to receive the newly instituted Victoria Cross. In 1858 the 2nd Battalion was raised, though there had been a 2nd Battalion for three short years, 1799 to 1802. The 1st Battalion saw service in the Boer War. The story ends in 1910 with the 1st Battalion in Aldershot with a strength of 801 all ranks, the 2nd was in India (1,031 all ranks) where it had been adjudged the best regiment at arms (British regiments) at the 6th Divisional Assault at Arms, Poona. The final chapter is devoted to uniforms, equipment and the Colours (of the eleven colour plates two depict the Colours and the rest uniforms). Appendices list the succession of Colonels and give biographical details; give an account of the Siege of Londonderry in 1689 and the Battle of Sherriffmuir in 1715 and details of regimental silver and regimental music

The Look of Maps

release date: Jan 01, 2010
The Look of Maps
Originally published in 1952, The Look of Maps documents Arthur H. Robinson''s pivotal observation that the discipline of cartography rests at the crossroads of science and art. Based on his doctoral research, this book attempts to resolve the apparent disconnect by covering a range of topics related to the visual characteristics of cartographic technique, including: lettering, structure, and color. Robinson offers advice that even the modern cartographer will find relevant: adopt a "healthy questioning attitude" in order to improve and refine the graphic techniques used to present information visually through maps. The Look of Maps is a classic text and an essential component to any cartographic library.
