The Ideological Attack
English Literature , Religion / September 24, 2018

Author : Syaikh Abdul Aziz bin Baz Language : English Format Ebook : PDF Description : At the time of publication, the author of this book, the eighty-nine year old scholar – Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez bin Baaz – passed away on the morning of Thursday 27th of Muharram, 1420 H. (corresponding to the 13th of May 1999 CE). His death is indeed a great loss to the Islamic world. We ask Allaah by His Most Beautiful Names, to bestow mercy and forgiveness upon the exemplary imaam, naseemul-hjaaz (the gentle and refreshing breeze of Arabia), Shaykh ‘Abdul-‘Azeez bin ‘Abdullaah bin Baaz, and that He illuminates his grave and grants him al-Firdaws; the highest Paradise. Indeed Allaah is the One Who hears and the One Who responds. The book that is now in the hands of the noble reader, addresses the nature of the ideological attack. It discusses the rationale behind this attack, its objectives, its scale, as well as the means employed by the enemies to achieve these objectives. The actual basis for this book is a translation of two separate interviews. The first interview centers upon the root cause for the ummah’s weakness and our obligations towards the Islamic world. The…

100 Photographs That Changed the World

Author : Editors of LIFE Magazine Format File : PDF Language : English Publish : 2003 Description : A celebration of the power of photography offers a stunning portfolio of one hundred of the most important and vivid still images of all time, including Robert Capa’s images from the beaches of Normandy, Joe Rosenthal’s famed study of the flag raising at Iwo Jima, and works by Harry Benson, Eddie Ad Nominated through on-line votes and selected by Life editors, the 100 images in this compendium cover unforgettable moments in “The Arts,” “Society,” “War & Peace” and “Science & Nature.” The photographs are all striking-whether visually or viscerally, artistically or emotionally-but many are difficult to look at. As Gordon Parks writes in his introduction, “these images helped push us toward a change.” And so it’s possible to revisit the moments when a white crowd in Indiana cheered at the hanging bodies of two black men, when grieving members of AIDS activist David Kirby gathered around his deathbed, when the 1937 bombing of Shanghai left a train station destroyed and a single bloody child alone amidst the wreckage. There are a few lighter moments-the Beatles arriving at JFK in 1964, the American…

International Dictionary of Film and Filmmakers Directors

  Format Ebook : PDF Editor : Tom Pendergast and Sara Pendergast Language : English Publish : 2000 Preview : Like the other major volume in the series (“Films”) this is a really large, interesting book that has room for improvement. There’s generally a very good (if superficial) write-up of all the world’s major directors (except Mikio Naruse, Jiri Trnka, etc.) and quite a few of its minor (read: mediocre Hollywood) directors. The book gives a rundown of each director’s films and a list of writings by/about each director. The problem is that the folks doing the writing aren’t usually experts on who they’re writing about, or they seem indifferent towards them. Why not get Ray Carney to write about John Cassavetes instead of Bill Wine ? How about Tony Raynes on Edward Yang? In the end there often tends to be precious little piercing insight into the subjects of the book and so in the end “Directors” has less impact than it could. However limited it may be, “Directors” is still a wonderfully informative read because of its sheer scope, and its willingness to include current filmmakers is admirable.

Encyclopedia of Architecture
Engineering , English Literature / August 13, 2018

Format Ebook : CHM Author : Donald Langmead Publish : 2001 Preview : This book is a good compilation of buildings and civil engineering projects throughout history. But, unless this book is the first thing you consult, you likely won’t learn very much. If it’s an explanation of the architectural design or engineering technology behind these buildings and projects, you will have to go elsewhere. The book concentrates more on the history rather than the design and construction methods used. Illustrations are black and white photos, and aren’t very numerous so they’re not much help either. An architect once described the built environment as “the manifestation of the human spirit in stone, wood, and steel.” In this new volume, readers can explore the most innovative and magnificent architectural expressions of the human spirit, from pre-history to the present, from all parts of the world. Readers can visit the Acropolis and Chartres cathedral, along with less familiar places like the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, once the greatest city in sub-Saharan Africa, and China’s 71 meter high, 1,200 year old Grand Buddha, carved from stone. They’ll learn the secrets behind audacious engineering feats like the Panama Canal, the U.S. interstate highway system,…

Changing Images of Man (1974)

  Editor : OW Markley and Willis W Harman Publish : 1974 Format File : PDF Preview : Changing Images of Man is an unusual work, one that enthuses some, displeases others, and leaves few neutral. It was undertaken for a specific purpose: to chart, insofar as possible, what changes in the conceptual premises underlying Western society would lead to a desirable future. Obviously a research objective containing many value-laden assumptions! Thus it is perhaps not surprising that a number of questions about the background of this study have been asked by students in classes at the dozen or so colleges and universities that have used Changing Images of Man as a text. The most common questions concern the study’s origins. Why was it undertaken ? Who supported it ? What kinds of researchers wrote it ? Additionally, most have wanted to know how it is viewed now, some 7 years later, by the researchers who wrote it. And what it may have led to by way of social change. The purpose of this introduction to the Pergamon edition is to answer some of these questions. In 1968 the U.S. Office of Education launched two research centers in an ambitious undertaking…

EBook Propaganda

Author : Edward L. Bernays Publish : 1928 Format Ebook : PDF Preview : Propaganda, an influential book written by Edward L. Bernays in 1928, incorporated the literature from social science and psychological manipulation into an examination of the techniques of public communication. Bernays wrote the book in response to the success of some of his earlier works such as Crystallizing Public Opinion (1923) and A Public Relations Counsel (1927). Propaganda explored the psychology behind manipulating masses and the ability to use symbolic action and propaganda to influence politics, effect social change, and lobby for gender and racial equality.[1] Walter Lippman was Bernays’ unacknowledged American mentor and his work The Phantom Public greatly influenced the ideas expressed in Propaganda a year later.[2] The work propelled Bernays into media historians’ view of him as the “father of public relations.”[3] Source : Wikipedia You need to login to view the rest of the content.
