In this book, I intended to paint an ethical portrait of a noble and lucid scientist par excellence. In doing so, I was primarily guided by what he said about himself, about others, about his endeavours as a researcher and about the general events and views on the world of his time. To some extent, I have also relied on quotations and articles of people whose names are mentioned in this volume: people who have devoted themselves to studying Tesla's life and who, by doing so, helped me present a full but concise and truthful image of Nikola Tesla's life and works. For that I am sincerely grateful.

In addition to their obvious roles in American politics, race and gender also work in hidden ways to profoundly influence the way we think—and vote—about a vast array of issues that don’t seem related to either category. As Nicholas Winter reveals in Dangerous Frames, politicians and leaders often frame these seemingly unrelated issues in ways that prime audiences to respond not to the policy at hand but instead to the way its presentation resonates with their deeply held beliefs about race and gender. Winter shows, for example, how official rhetoric about welfare and Social Security has tapped into white Americans’ racial biases to shape their opinions on both issues for the past two decades. Similarly, the way politicians presented health care reform in the 1990s divided Americans along the lines of their attitudes toward gender. Combining cognitive and political psychology with innovative empirical research, Dangerous Frames ultimatelyilluminates the emotional underpinnings of American politics.

On September 11, 2001, four hijacked airplanes changed the world. Or did they? The 9/11 attacks shattered the modern illusion about Islam as a wholly peaceful faith. They raised the possibility that this seemingly new struggle between East and West—between secular democracy and Islamist theocracy—is just the latest variant of a much older contest between Islam and the non-Islamic world that has been now simmering, now flaring up, for the last 1,400 years. If we have failed to see the skirmishes along Islam’s perimeters—in Kashmir and Kosovo, in India and Pakistan, in Chechnya and Xinjiang—it is simply because we have refused to look. InReflections on Islam, award-winning author and columnist George Jonas explores a range of issues that have come to occupy our daily attention. Is there a difference between Islam and Islamism (and does it matter if there is)? Are we in the midst of a clash of civilizations? How is the confrontation between theocracy and democracy manifesting itself outside of the Middle East? Was it a mistake to invade Iraq, or simply a mistake to stay? At what point do liberal impulses on matters such as multiculturalism and immigration becomes short-sighted and dangerous? Witty, provocative, and eloquent, this collection of essays—written between early 2001 and late 2006—showcases Jonas at his best.Reflections on Islam should be required reading for anyone grappling with the defining issues of our age. Praise for George Jonas: “... one of the very best writers of English in the country...†—I.M. Owen inBooks in Canada “... a clever and witty European whose mastery of English is not only flawless but elegant and daring...†—Bronwyn Drainie inThe Globe and Mail “...the closest thing to Alexander Pope we have...†—John Moore in theVancouver Sun—Saturday Books

One of the world’s greatest minds addresses religion and science, war and peace, and the treatment of minorities in this authorized collection. In the aftermath of the First World War, Albert Einstein writes about his hopes for the League of Nations, his feelings as a German citizen about the growing anti-Semitism and nationalism of his country, and his myriad opinions about the current affairs of his day. In addition to these political perspectives, The World As I See It reveals the idealistic, spiritual, and witty side of this great intellectual as he approaches topics including “Good and Evil,” “Religion and Science,” “Active Pacifism,” “Christianity and Judaism,” and “Minorities.” Including letters, speeches, articles, and essays written before 1935, this collection offers a complete portrait of Einstein as a humanitarian and as a human being trying to make sense of the changing world around him. This authorized ebook features a new introduction by Neil Berger, PhD, and an illustrated biography of Albert Einstein, which includes rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the Albert Einstein Archives at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
