            Elderhood: Redefining Aging, Transforming Medicine, Reimagining Life

            As revelatory as Atul Gawande's Being Mortal, physician and award-winning author Louise Aronson's Elderhood is an essential, empathetic look at a vital but little respected stage of life. For more than 5,000 years, old has been defined as beginning between the ages of 60 and 70. ...That means most people alive today will spend more years in elderhood than in childhood, and many will be elders for 40 years or more. Yet at the very moment that humans are living longer than ever before, we've made old age into a disease, a condition to be dreaded, disparaged, neglected, and denied. Reminiscent of Oliver Sacks, noted Harvard-trained geriatrician Louise Aronson uses stories from her quarter century of caring for patients, and draws from history, science, literature, popular culture, and her own life to weave a vision of old age that's neither nightmare nor utopian fantasy. She challenges not only the way we look at aging but also the way we think and feel about medicine and humanity itself. Elderhood is for anyone who is, in the author's own words, an aging, i.e., still-breathing human being.

            The War on Drugs has been official American policy since the 1970s, with the UK, Europe, and much of the world following suit. It is at best a failed policy, according to bestselling author Antony Loewenstein. Its direct results have included mass incarceration in the US, extreme... violence in different parts of the world, the backing of dictatorships, and surging drug addiction globally. And now the Trump administration is unleashing diplomatic and military forces against any softening of the conflict. Pills, Powder, and Smoke investigates the individuals, officials, activists, and traffickers caught up in this deadly war. Travelling through the UK, the US, Australia, Honduras, the Philippines, and Guinea-Bissau, Loewenstein uncovers the secrets of the drug war, why it's so hard to end, and who is really profiting from it. Loewenstein reports on the frontlines across the globe, from the streets of London's King's Cross to remote African villages. He reveals how the War on Drugs has become the most deadly war in modern times. Designed and inspired by Washington, its agenda has nothing to do with ending drug use or addiction, but is all about controlling markets, territory, and people.

            NBC News and MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff, winner of the 2019 Walter Cronkite Award for his reporting on the child separation crisis, delivers a profoundly personal and moving report from the border and beyond, revealing the wrenching human story behind one of the most dist...urbing passages of modern American history. Donald Trump's most infamous decision as president, to systematically separate thousands of migrant families at the border, was in effect for months before most Americans saw the living conditions of the children in custody at the epicenter of the policy. NBC News and MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff was among the first journalists to expose the truth of what their lives were like on the inside after seeing them firsthand. His widely shared reports in June 2018 ignited public scrutiny that contributed to the President reversing his own policy by Executive Order, and earned Soboroff the Cronkite Award for Excellence in Political Broadcast Journalism and the 2019 Hillman Prize for Broadcast Journalism. In Separated, Soboroff weaves together his own experience unexpectedly covering this national issue with other key figures in the drama he met along the way, including feuding administration officials responsible for tearing apart and then reuniting families, and the parents and children who were caught in the middle. He reveals new and exclusive details of how the policy was carried out, and how its affects are still being felt. Today, there is still not a full accounting of the total number of children the President ripped away from their parents. The exact number may never be known, only that it is in the thousands. Now the President is doubling down on draconian immigration policies, including threatening to hold migrant families indefinitely and making tens of thousands applying for asylum wait in some of Mexico's most dangerous cities. Separated is required reading for anyone who wants to understand how Trump and his administration were able to

            The Communist Manifesto
              

            The Communist Manifesto (EPUB ebook)

            By Marx, Karl; Engels, Friedrich

            In 1847, while in Brussels, the German Communist League asked Friedrich Engels and Karl Marx to draft a pamphlet on the principles of communism. It was published in 1848 under the title Manifesto of the Communist Party, and in it, Marx and Engels discuss the basic communist theor...ies on society, economics, class struggles and politics. The Communist Manifesto was published at a time when revolutions were spreading throughout Europe, and the work was met with a mixture of praise and criticism. While the authors were blamed as scapegoats by authorities in the wake of social unrest, others were persuaded by the Communist League's principles. The Communist Manifesto remains one of the most influential works in history, and has profoundly impacted political landscapes across all continents.HarperTorch brings great works of non-fiction and the dramatic arts to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms.

            Refugees: Why seeking asylum is legal and Australia's policies are not
             

            Refugees: Why seeking asylum is legal and Australia's policies are not (EPUB ebook)

            By McAdam, Jane; Chong, Fiona

            If you listen to some politicians and voices in the media, you might well believe that asylum seekers are 'illegal'. You might think that they should wait their turn in the so-called 'queue'. You might think that they pose a potential threat to our national security, and that the... government is right to keep them from our shores. Or you might take a humanitarian stance, believing that drastic border protection policies, though harsh in effect, are necessary to deter asylum seekers from endangering their lives on risky boat journeys to Australia. However logical these conclusions might seem, the problem is that they are based on widespread misunderstandings about why and how people seek asylum, and what Australia's international legal obligations are.This book rejects spin and panic to provide a straightforward and balanced account of Australia's asylum policies in light of international law. Written for a general audience, it explains who asylum seekers and refugees are, what the law is, and what policies like offshore processing, mandatory detention, and turning back boats mean in practice. Using real-life examples, this book reminds us of the human impact of Australia's policies.
