The Five Thousand Year Leap by , Summary

The Founding Fathers of the United States of America created the first free people in modern times. They wrote a new kind of Constitution which is now the oldest in existence. They built a new kind of commonwealth designed as a model for the whole human race. They believed it was thoroughly possible to create a new kind of civilization; giving freedom, equality, and justice to all. The Founders created a new cultural climate that gave wings to the human spirit. They built a free-enterprise culture to encourage industry and prosperity. They gave humanity the needed ingredients for a gigantic 5,000-year leap in which more progress has been made in the past 200 years than all of prior recorded human history. All of this came about because of 28 basic principles the Founders discovered, upon which all free nations must be built in order to succeed.

The Third Thousand Years by W. Cleon Skousen Summary

From the days of Father Abraham to the rise of King David were ten turbulent centuries filled with pathos and drama. These were the times of many notable personalities from the Old Testament. This is the epoch of the famous patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Their exemplary lives, as they stood true and faithful in the midst of adversity, are especially poignant today. They were followed by the exciting and tumultuous life of Joseph, who rose to become prime minister of Egypt, and saved that nation from starvation and ruin through his prophetic gifts. From the desert and thundering slopes of Mount Sinai then came the amazing life of Moses, who rose out of his own fear to become one of the greatest prophets and leaders ever known, who used the power of the priesthood to unleash an astonishing flood of miracles that exceeded any other epoch until the ministry of Jesus Christ. He was soon followed by the great Ephraimite general, Joshua, who in his old age lead the children of Israel forth in battle as they conquered the land of Palestine which had been promised to them by the Lord. However, Israel’s rise to greatness was short-circuited by several hundred years of iniquity as they turned from the Lord and wallowed in sin. Fortunately, the Lord did not forsake them as he sent messages of light and hope to many prophets and judges such as Gideon, Deborah, Ruth and Samuel, whose lives still inspire us today. Eventually the children of Israel began to see glimpses of a new golden epoch of righteousness and prosperity through the influence of the prophet Samuel and the rise of King Saul and King David. All of these great names belong to the thrilling third thousand years of human history. The Third Thousand Years, like its predecessor, The First 2,000 Years, makes the Old Testament come alive with new understanding. Obscure and misunderstood passages of scripture can now be understood through the additional light of modern revelation. The text is carefully documented so that every important point is correlated with appropriate passages in the scriptures. Helpful maps, charts and illustrations are also included to enhance our understanding of this fascinating and dynamic epoch of history. This eBook includes the original index, illustrations, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format.

The Making of America by W. Cleon Skousen Summary

The United States of America has been blessed with the world’s greatest political success formula. In a little over a century, this formula allowed a small segment of the human family—less than 6 percent—to become the richest nation on earth. It allowed them to create more than half of the world’s total output in production and enjoy the highest standard of living in the history of the world. In this book, we learn how the Founding Fathers discovered this success formula. Much of this discovery is told in the words of the Founders themselves, so that the reader can feel the power of their minds sweeping away thousands of years of bad government and illogical laws to formulate a whole new society based on human freedom. By returning to the roots of the Founders’ thinking, and contemplating the logic that they used in establishing the Constitution, we can better understand the challenges and solutions that confront us in today’s political world.

The Naked Capitalist by W. Cleon Skousen Summary

Why? Why do some of the richest people in the world support communism and socialism? Why would they support what appears to be the pathway to their own destruction? Dr. Carroll Quigley of Harvard, Princeton and Georgetown Universities states that he has been associated with many of these dynastic families of the super-rich. He therefore writes as an authority on the world’s secret power structure. As Dr. Skousen reviews Carroll Quigley’s book Tragedy and Hope, he exposes the plans of these rich capitalists, who wish to mold and manipulate society according to their evil plans. The details that are revealed in this book may astonish you. This eBook includes the original index, illustrations, footnotes, table of contents and page numbering from the printed format.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas Summary

The Count of Monte Cristo is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas. It is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet. The story takes place in France, Italy and islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events of 1815–1838. It begins from just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile) and spans through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty. In addition, it is a story that involves romance, loyalty, betrayal and selfishness, shown throughout the story as characters slowly reveal their true inner nature. The book is considered a literary classic today. According to Luc Sante, "The Count of Monte Cristo has become a fixture of Western civilization's literature, as inescapable and immediately identifiable as Mickey Mouse, Noah's flood, and the story of Little Red Riding Hood."

America's Choice by Tad R. Callister Summary

"BLESSED IS THE NATION WHOSE GOD IS THE LORD" (Psalms 33:12) America-imperfect as it may be-is still the shining light on the hill to all the world. But it is now at a crossroad. Will we choose to be a nation under God or without God? America's Choice examines the overwhelming evidence of God's hand in the destiny of America-the divine calling of the Founding Fathers, their understanding that the Constitution is dependent upon a moral people, that morality requires religion, and that religion's purpose is to seek God's will. Accordingly, America's Choice explores God's will on critical moral matters such as the role of religion in the public sector, abortion, zero population growth, and capitalism vs. socialism. It proposes the ultimate solution to our country's ills, namely, a return to faith and family. In so doing this book challenges those revisionist historians, judicial activists, and secularists who would transform us from a nation under God to a nation without God. In essence, this book gives us cause to reaffirm our faith in America. "In the 20 years I have lived in the United States I have seen a shift in the way people think and talk about this country. My reading of the situation is this: nothing is more essential to the United States than asking: "Why does this country exist? To what end was it created: And then reading original sources of its founding to discover the breathtaking answers. Answers that are brilliantly illustrated by Tad Callister in America's Choice."

Glenn Beck's Common Sense by Glenn Beck Summary

#1 New York Times bestselling author and popular radio and television host Glenn Beck revisits Thomas Paine's Common Sense. In any era, great Americans inspire us to reach our full potential. They know with conviction what they believe within themselves. They understand that all actions have consequences. And they find commonsense solutions to the nation’s problems. One such American, Thomas Paine, was an ordinary man who changed the course of history by penning Common Sense, the concise 1776 masterpiece in which, through extraordinarily straightforward and indisputable arguments, he encouraged his fellow citizens to take control of America’s future—and, ultimately, her freedom. Nearly two and a half centuries later, those very freedoms once again hang in the balance. And now, Glenn Beck revisits Paine’s powerful treatise with one purpose: to galvanize Americans to see past government’s easy solutions, two-party monopoly, and illogical methods and take back our great country.

Bad Samaritans by Jerome Corsi Summary

“If we do not fight this battle now, the United States of America will most certainly descend into a form of paganism not seen since the darkest days of antiquity.” —Jerome Corsi Liberty in America has always depended upon one thing: a citizenry who believes in God. Our founding fathers understood that without faith in God, rights and morality could not last. Without religion, true freedom cannot long endure. So for those who seek to take those rights away, transferring the gifts given by God to the individual back to the control of a secularist state, belief in God is the first tie to be severed. Since the 1920s, a battle has waged across America between radical leftists of the ACLU and those who would keep America true to its inception as “one nation, under God.” Bad Samaritans is best-selling author Jerome Corsi’s explosive look into the history of ACLU and its radical agenda to separate America from its religious roots and remake our nation in its own atheistic image. Told in a straightforward, no-nonsense style, Corsi lays out the history of this struggle, its communist roots, and the court cases that are serving to slowly erode the foundations of our freedom. Today we see the fruits of the ACLU’s master plan—a culture flooded with pornography, placing little worth on the value of a human life, and one in which protection and special treatment seem to exist for everyone except those of a Judeo-Christian background. Bad Samaritans looks behind the headlines and shows the ACLU’s fingerprints as it works to destroy freedom and enslave our constitutional republic to the demands of a Marxist state. It’s time to fight back.

공산주의 유령은 어떻게 우리세계를 지배하는가?(상) by 9평 편집부 Summary

"하나의 유령, 공산주의 유령이 유럽을 배회하고 있다." 마르크스와 앵겔스가 1848년 발표한 공산당 선언의 말머리에는 공산주의 유령에 대한 언급이 나온다. 〈공산주의 유령은 어떻게 우리 세계를 지배하는가?〉는 공산주의 유령이 어떻게 현대 사회에서 자라나 우리 세계를 지배하고 있느냐에 대한 통렬한 분석이다. 이 책은 동유럽 공산주의 진영이 와해되면서 지구상에서 자취를 감춘 것 같았던 공산주의 유령은 아직 소멸되지 않았으며, 인류 파멸이라는 목적을 이루기 위해 우리 사회 곳곳에 스며들고 있다고 지적한다. 침투는 가정, 학교, 문화, 종교, 언론, 법률 등 전반 영역에 걸쳐 이뤄지고 있으며, 중국 등 공산당이 집권하고 있는 국가 외에도 미국과 유럽, 아시아 등 전 세계 대부분의 국가에 손을 뻗치고 있다. 오늘날 인류는 물질문명의 정점을 향해 치닫고 있지만, 공산주의가 일으킨 대혼란으로 전례 없는 도전에 직면하고 있다. 공산주의의 궁극적인 목적은 지상에 ‘낙원'을 세우는 것이 아니라 인류를 파멸하는 것이다. 본서는 지난 역사를 되돌아볼 뿐만 아니라, 공산주의 유령이 우리 세계를 지배하는 것을 어떻게 막을 수 있을지에 주목하고 있다. 그리고 그에 대한 해결책을 제시한다.

Modern Mathematical Statistics with Applications by Jay L. Devore,Kenneth N. Berk Summary

Modern Mathematical Statistics with Applications, Second Edition strikes a balance between mathematical foundations and statistical practice. In keeping with the recommendation that every math student should study statistics and probability with an emphasis on data analysis, accomplished authors Jay Devore and Kenneth Berk make statistical concepts and methods clear and relevant through careful explanations and a broad range of applications involving real data. The main focus of the book is on presenting and illustrating methods of inferential statistics that are useful in research. It begins with a chapter on descriptive statistics that immediately exposes the reader to real data. The next six chapters develop the probability material that bridges the gap between descriptive and inferential statistics. Point estimation, inferences based on statistical intervals, and hypothesis testing are then introduced in the next three chapters. The remainder of the book explores the use of this methodology in a variety of more complex settings. This edition includes a plethora of new exercises, a number of which are similar to what would be encountered on the actuarial exams that cover probability and statistics. Representative applications include investigating whether the average tip percentage in a particular restaurant exceeds the standard 15%, considering whether the flavor and aroma of Champagne are affected by bottle temperature or type of pour, modeling the relationship between college graduation rate and average SAT score, and assessing the likelihood of O-ring failure in space shuttle launches as related to launch temperature.

Buddhist Economics by Clair Brown Summary

In the tradition of E. F. Schumacher's Small Is Beautiful, renowned economist Clair Brown argues persuasively for a new economics built upon equality, sustainability, and right living. "Buddhist Economics will give guidance to all those who seek peace, fairness, and environmental sustainability." -Jeffrey Sachs, author of The Age of Sustainable Development. Traditional economics measures the ways in which we spend our income, but doesn't attribute worth to the crucial human interactions that give our lives meaning. Clair Brown, an economics professor at U.C. Berkeley and a practicing Buddhist, has developed a holistic model, one based on the notion that quality of life should be measured by more than national income. Brown advocates an approach to organizing the economy that embraces rather than skirts questions of values, sustainability, and equity. Complementing the award-winning work of Jeffrey Sachs and Bill McKibben, and the paradigm-breaking spirit of Amartya Sen, Robert Reich, and Thomas Piketty, Brown incorporates the Buddhist emphasis on interdependence, shared prosperity, and happiness into her vision for a sustainable and compassionate world. Buddhist economics leads us to think mindfully as we go about our daily activities, and offers a way to appreciate how our actions affect the well-being of those around us. By replacing the endless cycle of desire with more positive collective activities, we can make our lives more meaningful as well as happier. Inspired by the popular course Professor Brown teaches at U.C. Berkeley, Buddhist Economics represents an enlightened approach to our modern world infused with ancient wisdom, with benefits both personal and global, for generations to come.

中美布局:应对全球气候变化背景下的清洁能源合作 by 徐洪峰 Summary

21世紀中美關係的走向,越來越取決於兩國經濟關係的走向,而兩國經濟關係的走向,與清潔能源所引發的新的經濟格局調整息息相關。在當前的世界權力格局中,中國和美國均佔據著舉足輕重的關鍵地位。在由清潔能源所引發的世界經濟格局和政治格局變動面前,美國的戰略目標是:作為現有的霸權大國,如何利用低碳經濟發展的歷史契機,繼續保持、進而鞏固當前的優勢地位,同時防範中國這樣的新興大國對自身地位的挑戰;中國的戰略目標是:作為全球影響力急劇上升的重要新興大國,如何利用低碳經濟發展的歷史契機,提升自己的國際地位和國際話語權,同時防範現有霸權大國對自己的遏制和掣肘。戰略目標的異同,使得在清潔能源發展問題上,中美兩國既存在合作的積極意願,同時發生衝突的可能性也大大存在。 本書通過詳實的第一手資料和資料,從應對氣候變化與發展清潔能源的必要性出發,全面總結分析了中美清潔能源發展的國際國內背景、清潔能源發展推動因素、清潔能源發展戰略政策及行動、中美兩國發展清潔能源合作互動歷程、合作現狀及潛力、合作的重點領域,以及中美應對氣候變化和發展清潔能源合作的衝突和障礙,並提出了未來深化中美合作的政策建議。
