Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "The hero of The Invisibility Cloak lives in contemporary Beijing--where everyone is doing their best to hustle up the ladder of success while shouldering an ever-growing burden of consumer goods--and he's a loser. Well into his forties, he's divorced (and still doting on his ex), childless, and living with his sister (her husband wants him out) in an apartment at the edge of town with a crack in the wall the wind from the north blows through while he gets by, just, by making customized old-fashioned amplifiers for the occasional rich audio-obsessive. He has contempt for his clients and contempt for himself. The only things he really likes are Beethoven and vintage speakers. Then an old friend tips him off about a special job--a little risky but just don't ask too many questions--and can it really be that this hopeless loser wins? This provocative and seriously funny exercise in the social fantastic by the brilliantly original Ge Fei, one of China's finest living writers, is among the most original works of fiction to come out of China in recent years. It is sure to appeal to readers of Haruki Murakami and other fabulists of contemporary irreality"-- Provided by publisher.

Title The mosaic principle : the six dimensions of a remarkable life and career

Title The mosaic principle :
Author Lovegrove, Nick, author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "The pressures of modern society have pushed us toward deeper specialization in our lives and careers. Our narrow expertise means we are increasingly isolated from those different from us, which fosters tension and conflict-think of business people and government officials who distrust each other, or police officers who struggle to operate in minority communities. We've been pushed into self-defining cocoons from which it is difficult to break out, and we lack the coping skills for succeeding in an ever-changing, more complex, and diverse world. Nick Lovegrove conveys both a compelling vision and a pragmatic path out of this contemporary trap. Through vivid portraits of those who get it right, such as Paul Farmer, the physician whose broad-minded approach brings health and hope to the world's poorest people, and those who get it deeply wrong, such as Jeffrey Skilling, whose narrow focus brought down Enron, he provides a simple blueprint of six skills-a developed moral compass, a prepared mind, an intellectual thread, an integrated network, contextual intelligence, and transferable skills-that will enable personal and professional success. Taken together, these dimensions enable us to build our lives as mosaics, full of purpose, meaning, happiness, and success"-- Provided by publisher.

Title The politics of mourning : death and honor in Arlington National Cemetery

Title The politics of mourning :
Author McElya, Micki, 1972- author.
Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary Arlington National Cemetery holds a distinctive place in American culture and self-conception. An active cemetery that averages thirty interments every weekday, it receives four million visitors each year who come to pay their respects to those who have sacrificed their lives to defend and protect the nation through war and peace. It is a sacred shrine in the popular imagination, hallowed ground that stands not only for those buried within but also for the ideals for which they died and which continue to require honor and respect from all American citizens. As perhaps the most critical site of collective mourning and remembrance in the country, Arlington has become an icon of American patriotism and national identity. Yet despite its central place in the nation's commemoration of its past heroes, few have ventured into the actual history of the place to show how it has evolved from its initial establishment during the Civil War to its current status. Micki McElya delves deeply into the historical past to get beyond the popular narratives and guides to this favorite tourist destination that is so heavily invested with national honor and reverence. In doing so, she gives us the first full history of the cemetery as a physical place that has been shaped and transformed by the political and cultural aims and circumstances of succeeding generations.-- Provided by publisher
