Book Summary:

A vital instrument of power, telecommunications is and has always been a political technology. In this book, Headrick examines the political history of telecommunications from the mid-nineteenth century to the end of World War II. He argues that this technology gave society new options. In times of peace, the telegraph and radio were, as many predicted, instruments of peace; in times of tension, they became instruments of politics, tools for rival interests, and weapons of war. Writing in a lively, accessible style, Headrick illuminates the political aspects of information technology, showing how in both World Wars, the use of radio led to a shadowy war of disinformation, cryptography, and communications intelligence, with decisive consequences.

Book Summary:

"This book explains how grassroots communities are infiltrated and politically co-opted in ways that render their resistance harmless. It reveals contemporary practices of domination, as powerholding elites - from elected officials to welfare bureaucrats - are teaching oppressed people to internalize their grievances and silence their needs. In the end, politics becomes a space where advocating for social justice makes less and less sense to people. It is therefore explaining the politics of inaction through disengagement from radicalism. It considers multiple sites of resistance to police violence, including the police killing Akai Gurley, Freddie Gray, and Korryn Gaines in particular. It also considers the mass protest associated with the wider Movement for Black Lives (M4BL). The book argues that anti-radicalism is an embedded feature of neoliberalism, that the widespread adoption of neoliberal politics has reinforced ongoing racial and gender oppressions, and that these same oppressed communities are being infiltrated in order to minimize their commitments to radical political resistance. Covering multiple sites and methods - from in-depth interviews on the resistance politics of Black welfare recipients in Chicago, to nationally representative survey data on hard-work beliefs in politics and the labor force, and case study analyses of police violence in Baltimore and New York - the book shows how political domination today is about ensnaring minds, constraining imaginations, and upending resistance. With the creation of the invisible weapons framework, future research can better explain sites of political disengagement and the connection to the erosion of whatever remains of democracy in the U.S"--

Book Summary:

Throughout the history of the Crusades, liturgical prayer, masses, and alms were all marshaled in the fight against Muslim armies. In Invisible Weapons, M. Cecilia Gaposchkin focuses on the ways in which Latin Christians communicated their ideas and aspirations for crusade to God through liturgy, how public worship was deployed, and how prayers and masses absorbed the ideals and priorities of crusading. Placing religious texts and practices within the larger narrative of crusading, Gaposchkin offers a new understanding of a crucial facet in the culture of holy war.

Book Summary:

Do not miss the opportunity that God has given us. Time is limited, time is not eternal. Rape is one of the devils invisible weapon. This book is meant to tell you about the purpose or purposes of a violation. A rape is a trap arranged by the devil, the purpose of this violation is to destroy us mentally, morally, physically. The story deals with a 12 year old girl who was raped by three men in different places. This girl is now 40 years old and she is remarried and has 6 children. I wrote this book to help anyone who has been raped, I wrote this book to tell them that being raped, or violated traumatizes us. When we are raped, we are immersed in trauma, and only Jesus can deliver us from this trauma which is planned by the devil, and He delivered me from my trauma and this he can also do it to help all of you who have asked for help. We can stay injured without knowing the purpose. Christ has shown me that I was traumatized. I wrote this book to tell you to forgive these people, because these people are doing what the devil said. The devil wanted to bring shame on us and traumatize us, to tell us that destroying is the message of God John: 10-10, the thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy. I have come so that humans have life and have it abundantly. I was lucky I'm not dead. His purpose in this world is that someone is killed and violated every day. Jesus tells us his purpose, ask the father, to forgive them for They Know Not What They Do, Luke 23-34. That's why I wrote this book for you, so that you say amen and forgive.

Book Summary:

The years 1830–1914 witnessed a revolution in the manufacture and use of books as great as that in the fifteenth century. Using new technology in printing, paper-making and binding, publishers worked with authors and illustrators to meet ever-growing and more varied demands from a population seeking books at all price levels. The essays by leading book historians in this volume show how books became cheap, how publishers used the magazine and newspaper markets to extend their influence, and how book ownership became universal for the first time. The fullest account ever published of the nineteenth-century revolution in printing, publishing and bookselling, this volume brings The Cambridge History of the Book in Britain up to a point when the world of books took on a recognisably modern form.
