A National Policy for Assessment and Management of Environmental Risk

release date: Jan 01, 1984

Vocations

release date: Oct 06, 2013
Vocations
"How do I know whether I have a vocation or not?" How often this question has risen to the lips of many a young boy or girl, who has come to realize that life has a purpose, only to be brushed aside with an uneasy "I am sure I have not," or a secret prayer that they might be saved from such a fate! How little they know the happiness they are throwing away in turning from God's invitation, for such a question, and such a feeling, is often the sign of a genuine vocation. In the first place, a vocation, or "a call to the priesthood or the religious life," in contradistinction to the general invitation, held out to all men, to a life of perfection even in the world, is a free gift of God bestowed on those whom He selects: "You have not chosen Me," He said to His Disciples, "but I have chosen you," and the Evangelist tells us that "Christ called unto Him whom He willed." Often that invitation is extended to those whom we would least expect. Magdalene, steeped to the lips in iniquity, became the spouse of the Immaculate; Matthew, surrounded by his ill gotten gains; Saul, "breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the Christians," each heard that summons, for a sinful life in the past, St. Thomas teaches, is no impediment to a vocation.

Excerpt from book: CHAPTER III The Hunting of Cheeta Dutt A FEW nights after the finding in the jungle of Biroo, the little chamar (tanner), by Ram Deen, who drove the mail-cart from Lai Kooah, the notables of Kaladoongie were gathered round a fire in front of the police-station. The Thanadar (chief of police), as befitted his rank and dignity, sat cross-legged on his charpoi, smoking gravely, whilst the rest of the company squatted on their heels, after the manner of the natives of India, passing a hookah round the circle and discussing in a desultory fashion the current events of that section of the Terai. A faint bugle-note far off in the jungle announced the approach of the mail-cart, and soon after the distant rumble of the wheels was heard as Ram Deen drove over the Bore bridge. When he was within a quarter of a mile of the village he blew a brave blast, and presently dashed up at full speed into the firelight, Biroo standing between his knees, and a huge pariah dog bounding along by the side of the cart. Soon after Ram Deen, followed by Biroo and the big dog, joined the circle round the fire. Salaam, malakoom said Biroo, gravely saluting the Thanadar, and including the rest of those assembled in his sweeping salute. Malakoom, salaam returned the Thanadar. So thou hast brought in the Queen's mail safely, my Rustum ? Hasteen and I, began the little fellow, putting a caressing hand on the head of the great dog, who lay beside him winking at the fire, Hasteen and I fear nought that moveth in the jungle, save only the men of Nyagong;?and then, too, there was Ram Deen. This was said so seriously that the men sitting round the fire laughed at the little man's gravity; and Ram Deen smiled as he spread an armful of dry grass on the ground, into which he tucked the ...

Officers, Nobles and Revolutionaries

release date: Jan 01, 1995
Officers, Nobles and Revolutionaries
Over the last forty years a once-dominant interpretation of the French revolution has fallen to pieces. Elaborated by generations of distinguished left-wing French historians, this classic version was gradually undermined by the piecemeal criticisms of English-speaking scholars. Many of their doubts, and the controversies which they provoked, appeared in articles scattered over a wide range of learned journals and conference proceedings. This collection brings together the more important contributions of one of the leading British participants in these debates. Some of the essays explore the motivations and achievements of the old monarchy's aristocratic opponents. Others probe the development of venality of offices, one of the old regime's most distinctive institutions. A wide range of revolutionary reforms, their motivations and results, are also examined, and some of the achievements of a generation of revisionism in this field are reviewed. An introduction sets them in the context of the debates to which they contributed, and demonstrates their continued relevance to our understanding of eighteenth-century France.

Venality

release date: Jan 01, 1996
Venality
In ancien regime France almost all posts of public responsibility had to be bought or inherited. Rather than tax their richer subjects directly, French kings preferred to sell them privileged public offices, which further payments allowed them to sell or bequeath at will. By the eighteenthcentury there were 70,000 venal offices, comprising the entire judiciary, most of the legal profession, officers in the army, and a wide range of other professions - from financiers handling the king's revenues down to auctioneers and even wigmakers. Though now yielding diminishing returns to theking, offices were more in demand than ever for the privileges and prestige, profit and power, that they conferred; and although it was widely accepted that selling public authority was undesirable, nobody imagined that those who had invested in offices could ever be bought out. The Revolutionbrought an unexpected opportunity to do so, but the legacy of venality has marked French institutions down to our day. William Doyle, one of the foremost historians of early modern Europe, has written the first comprehensive history of the last century of venality. He traces the evolution and dissolution of a system which was fundamental to the workings of state and society in France for over threecenturies.

Army Special Ops

release date: Jun 15, 2022
Army Special Ops
From New York Times bestselling author William Doyle, a gripping, definitive history of the most elite soldiers on the planet, the U.S. Army Special Forces. They are the best of the best of the United States Army, tasked with undertaking its most dangerous missions, including hostage rescue, counter-terrorism operations, and special reconnaissance. Army Special Ops is the first comprehensive history of these elite heroes skilled in unconventional warfare who risk—and often have sacrificed—their lives in service to the nation, including the Green Berets, Rangers, Night Stalkers, and Delta Force. America’s Special Forces soldiers have been involved in many of the most famous military activities of the last seventy-five years, from fulfilling key strategic objectives in Europe and the Pacific in the Second World War, to infiltrating enemy lines in Vietnam, to engaging in the bloody firefight known as the Battle of Mogadishu—captured in the bestselling book and film Black Hawk Down—to capturing and killing Osama bin Laden in a midnight raid. William Doyle relates these stories and many more in thrilling detail, and explores how Special Forces have responded to the shifting nature of modern warfare today. Based on thousands of pages of declassified files and interviews with the military personnel who have helped shape history, and illustrated with 50 photos and drawings, Army Special Ops introduces the epic personalities and chronicles many of their hair-raising, seemingly impossible missions, rescues, and assaults. Filled with epic stories of military heroism, this thrilling history pays tribute to the tragedies and triumphs of the soldiers of U.S. Army Special Operations, from their founding during World War II through the wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, to today.
