  2. Charles River Editors - Legends of the Renaissance: The Life and Legacy of ...
    *Includes pictures of Lorenzo and important people and places in his life. *Discusses Lorenzo's relationships with other famous Renaissance legends, including Leonardo and Michelangelo. *Includes a Bibliography for further reading. "How beautiful is youth that is always slipping away." - Lorenzo de' Medici A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history's most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? When historians are asked to pick a point in history when Western civilization was transformed and guided down the path to modernity, most of them point to the Renaissance. Indeed, the Renaissance revolutionized art, philosophy, religion, sciences and math, with individuals like Galileo, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, Dante, and Petrarch bridging the past and modern society. In Charles River Editors' Legends of the Renaissance, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of the most important men and women of the Renaissance in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. Most historians credit the city-state of Florence as the place that started and developed the Italian Renaissance, a process carried out through the patronage and commission of artists during the late 12th century. If Florence is receiving its due credit, much of it belongs to the Medicis, the family dynasty of Florence that ruled at the height of the Renaissance. The dynasty held such influence that some of its family members even became Pope. Among all of the Medicis, its most famous member ruled during the Golden Age of Florence at the apex of the Renaissance's artistic achievements. Lorenzo de Medici, commonly referred to as Lorenzo the Magnificent, was groomed both intellectually and politically to rule Venice, and he took the reins of power at just 20 years old. Of all the fields that were advanced during the Renaissance, the period's most famous works were art, with iconic paintings lik

  3. Charles River Editors - American Legends: The Life of Mae West
    *Includes pictures. *Includes Mae's most famous, clever and controversial quotes. *Includes quotes from Mae's autobiography about her life and career. *Includes a bibliography for further reading. "Between two evils, I generally like to pick the one I never tried before." - Mae West A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history's most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors' American Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of America's most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. Mae West will always be remembered as one of Hollywood's biggest icons, and the American Film Institute named her the 15th greatest actress of the 20th century in its Top 100 list, but she also transcended the entertainment industry and became a critical part of Americana itself. Over the course of 7 decades, Mae redefined the boundaries of sexuality in ways that made more conservative Americans of the early 20th century uncomfortable, and for good measure she did so boldly and in people's faces. Full of witty rejoinders and one-liners that both flaunted and celebrated her sexuality, she eventually managed to help usher in a more open era, even as the standards of the time found her so controversial that she was often subjected to censorship (which she once quipped "made a fortune" for her). Mae and some of her movies have been widely credited with spurring the implementation of the notorious Hays Code, which censored lewd and obscene material in Hollywood movies for several years, but she remained defiant. Even near the end of her life and career, when cast in a role where she is romantically pursued by a British man, her elderly character wisecracks that she hopes to be able to say what Paul Revere did: "The British are coming." Although Mae West is mostly remembered for being one of the 20th century's f

  23. Alan Northcott - Mastering Technical Analysis: Strategies and Tactics for ...
    Learn the Secrets Used by Successful Traders to Anticipate the Markets and Make a Profit Now in its second printing! "Still struggling to make money trading?" Newsletters and Tips Perhaps you subscribe to a newsletter, or pick up tips from "experts"? And you trade your own account based on what they tell you Look, reputable newsletters don't allow their editors to take a position in their recommendations before publication - so there's no conflict. So do you think that the writer cares as much about your money as you do? And disreputable newsletters and tip sheets are used by shysters to inflate buying interest in a particular stock and send the price up, allowing the author to get a profit on shares he already owns. It's called pump and dump, and I expect you've experienced that at least once. Either way, do you want to trust your trading account to what they say? You Bought a Trading Plan And followed it? Your plan takes a couple of indicators, say the MACD and RSI, and tells you what to look for, so you can make a trade. These plans are "one size fits all" and never tailored to your appetite for risk, which means you may find them hard to stick with, or they may give you sleepless nights. Or maybe you bought a black box program that shoots out recommendations - good luck with that! Wouldn't you like to know about all the other indicators you can use and their settings, so that you can be in control and make your own selections to suit your way of trading? What You Get "Mastering Technical Analysis" reveals all the methods and techniques that are available to you to ramp up your trading performance. You'll find out How to read charts How to understand indicators How to earn money consistently How to spot a trend When to trade - and when not to How to figure the amount you should trade When to enter a trade Where to set your stop losses, and why How to prepare your personal trading plan This book will give you the confidence to forge your own path in the markets.

  25. Rachel Fell Mcdermott - Sources of Indian Traditions: Modern India, ...
    For more than fifty years, students and teachers have made the two-volume resource Sources of Indian Traditions their top pick for an accessible yet thorough introduction to Indian and South Asian civilizations. Volume 2 contains an essential selection of primary readings on the social, intellectual, and religious history of India from the decline of Mughal rule in the eighteenth century to today. It details the advent of the East India Company, British colonization, the struggle for liberation, the partition of 1947, and the creation of Pakistan, Bangladesh, and contemporary India. This third edition now begins earlier than the first and second, featuring a new chapter on eighteenth-century intellectual and religious trends that set the stage for India's modern development. The editors have added material on Gandhi and his reception both nationally and abroad and include different perspectives on and approaches to Partition and its aftermath. They expand their portrait of post-1947 India and Pakistan and add perspectives on Bangladesh. The collection continues to be divided thematically, with a section devoted to the drafting of the Indian constitution, the rise of nationalism, the influence of Western thought, the conflict in Kashmir, nuclear proliferation, minority religions, secularism, and the role of the Indian political left. A phenomenal text, Sources of Indian Traditions is more indispensable than ever for courses in philosophy, religion, literature, and intellectual and cultural history.
