Book Living the Great Illusion

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Sir Norman Angell, pioneer both of international relations as a distinct discipline and of the theory of globalization, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize, and one of the twentieth century's leading internationalist campaigners on both sides of the Atlantic, lived the great illusion in three senses. First, his 'life job', as he came to call it, was founded upon and defined by The Great Illusion, a best-seller whose original version appeared in 1909: it perceptively showed how economic interdependence would prevent great powers profiting from war; yet it made other, less felicitous, claims from whose implications he spent decades trying to extricate himself. Second, his magnum opus and all his best work derived, to an extent unusual for a public intellectual, not from abstract thinking but from an eventful and varied life as a jobbing journalist in four countries, a cowboy, land-speculator, and gold-prospector in California, production manager of the continental edition of the Daily Mail, author, lecturer, pig farmer, Labour MP, entrepreneur, and campaigner for collective security. Third, he fostered many an enduring illusion about himself by at various times giving wrongly his age, name, nationality, marital status, key career dates, and core beliefs. By dint of careful detective work, this first biography of Angell reveals the truth about a remarkable life that has hitherto been much misrepresented and misinterpreted.

Book The Great Illusion  A Story of Self Revolution

Download or read book The Great Illusion A Story of Self Revolution written by Phoenix Wise and published by Phoenix Wise. This book was released on 2020-03-06 with total page 300 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Great Illusion: A Story of Self-Revolution, Part 1: The Revelation, is the first book in a three-part series. This book is revolutionary and will change the way you think and see things. Throughout human history, people have been bombarded with lies and misinformation. Many people blindly believe their parents, society, religion, politicians, and teachers. Whether it’s for power, greed, money, control, or enslavement, lying to people is one of the most evil things someone can do. Unfortunately, too many people are willing participants or are just ignorant. It’s dangerous and unhealthy for the individual or the society to go along with these manipulations and fabrications. One of the best things that you can do is be skeptical and question what you have been told and shown, so you can discover the truth. This first book lets you follow the story of Emerald and her quest to break out of being controlled. For this book, she tackles current and real societal issues related to competition, freedom, religion, politics, capitalism, and many more. You may not agree with everything that Emerald believes, but at least you are starting to question what you believe while evolving in your life. Please keep expanding your awareness of yourself and the world around you. I hope you enjoy this philosophical and empowering journey into discovering the truth and the reality that we all need to face, which is yourself.

Book The Great Illusion

Download or read book The Great Illusion written by Norman Angell and published by Cosimo, Inc.. This book was released on 2007-11-01 with total page 396 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: First published in 1909, The Great Illusion sets out to answer one of the greatest questions in human history: Why is there war? Specifically, Angell wishes to discuss why there is war between the countries of Europe, which seem to always be at one another's throats. Angell refutes the belief that military power results in greater wealth and instead proposes that advanced economies based on trade and contract law can only generate value in the absence of military upset. War destroys any wealth that conquerors may have wanted to obtain, making the whole enterprise pointless. A deep understanding of this would, then, end the need for war. Students of history, political science, and peace studies will find much to ponder and much to argue with in this classic text. British journalist and politician SIR RALPH NORMAN ANGELL (1872-1967) was an executive for the World Committee against War and Fascism and a member of the executive committee of the League of Nations Union. Knighted in 1931, he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1933. From 1905 to 1912, he was the Paris editor for the Daily Mail, and served as a Labour MP from 1929 to 1931. He is also the author of Peace Theories and the Balkan War and The Fruits of Victory.

Book The Great Illusion   The Original Classic Edition

Download or read book The Great Illusion The Original Classic Edition written by Norman Angell and published by Tebbo. This book was released on 2012-06 with total page 134 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Great Illusion is a book by Norman Angell, first published in Britain in 1909 under the title Europes Optical Illusion. According to John Keegan Europe in the summer of 1914 enjoyed a peaceful productivity so dependent on international exchange and co-operation that a belief in the impossibility of a general war seemed the most conventional of wisdoms. In 1910 an analysis of prevailing economic interdependence, The Great Illusion, had become a best-seller; its author Norman Angell had demonstrated, to the satisfaction of almost all informed opinion, that the disruption of international credit inevitably to be caused by war would either deter its outbreak or bring it speedily to an end. The Great Illusion of the title was the belief that there would soon be another major and destructive European war. At the time it was published, there was a naval arms race between Germany and the United Kingdom, and there had been a vogue in Britain for novels imagining a future German invasion (for example, Erskine Childers The Riddle of the Sands (1903) or William LeQueuxs The Invasion of 1910 (1906)). After Angells book appeared, the flood of invasion stories stopped[citation needed] (one of the last was P. G. Wodehouses 1909 parody The Swoop! or, How Clarence Saved England). In 1914, Angells theory was proved wrong by the outbreak of the Great War, which lasted for four years. However, the book was updated and a new edition was published in 1933. In this version, Angell changed his initial argument slightly, he no longer proposed that economics would stop a war, or prevent its happening, but instead challenged that waging a war for economic reasons was a futile struggle, that a nation cannot enrich itself by a conquest of its neighbors. This new thesis earned him the Nobel Peace Prize in 1933, and the economic state of Europe in the interwar era, as well as the Post War era, seemed to bring a new validity to his work.

Book Prohibition and Bootlegging in the American West

Download or read book Prohibition and Bootlegging in the American West written by Jeremy Agnew and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2022-10-25 with total page 231 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Prohibition was imposed by eager temperance movements organizers who sought to shape public behavior through alcoholic beverage control in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The success of reformers' efforts resulted in National Prohibition in America from 1920 to 1933, but it also resulted in a thriving illegal business in the manufacture and distribution of illegal liquor. The history of Prohibition and the resulting illegal drinking is frequently told through the lens of crime and violence in Chicago and other major East Coast cities. Often neglected are the effects of Prohibition on the Western part of the United States and how Westerners rose to the challenge of avoiding the consequences of illegal drinking. Illegal liquor was imported from abroad, made in stills using strange ingredients that were sometimes poisonous to the unlucky drinker. This history includes stories ranging from serious to quirky, and provides an entertaining account of how misguided efforts resulted in numerous unintended consequences.

Book excerpt: Excerpt from The Great Illusion: A Study of the Relation of Military Power to National Advantage If this, the fourth American edition, is bulkier than its predecessors, it is chiefly because the events of the last two years throw an interesting light upon the bearing of the book's main thesis on actual world problems. I have, therefore, added an appendix dealing with certain criticisms based upon the nature of the first Balkan War, in the course of which I attempt to show just how the principles elaborated here have been working out in European politics. The American interest in the problems here discussed is hardly less vital than that of Europe I am even more persuaded than when the first American edition of this book was issued in 1910. It is certain that opinion in America will not be equipped for dealing with her own problems arising out of her relations with the Spanish American states, with Japan, with the Philippines, unless it has some fair understanding of the principles with which this book deals. Its general interest even goes farther than this: no great community like that of modern America can remain indifferent to the drift of general opinion throughout the world on matters wrapped up with issues so important as those of war and peace.
