              1984, published in 1949, is a dystopian and satirical novel. It revolves around Winston Smith, who lives in a nation called Oceania, in a province called Airstrip One, which represents present-day England. This state is controlled by the Party, headed by a mysterious leader who i...s addressed as Emmanuel Goldstein, also known as the Big Brother. The Party watches every single move that Smith and other citizens make. The nation's language and history is forcefully changed for the benefit of the Party. A new language, Newspeak, is being compulsively implemented to ensure works that have anything to do with political rebellion are omitted. In Oceania, even rebellious thoughts are illegal and are said to be the worst of all crimes. The people are suppressed and any form of individuality is not tolerated, including love and sex. Smith works as a low-ranking member of the Party who alters historical records. He hates the Party and thus buys an illegal diary in which he pens down his thoughts. He meets Julia, a coworker, who seems to been romantically inclined towards him. He however doubts that she is a Party spy who will get him imprisoned for his 'thoughtcrimes'. Her love turns out to be true and they have a covert affair. Smith's hatred for the Party grows day by day and he is convinced that a powerful Party official O'Brien is actually trying to overthrow the present government with the help of a secret group named the Brotherhood. As the story goes on, readers learn the twists and turns that life in Oceania has in store for Smith. He faces terror, betrayal, freedom, and a broken spirit. 1984 is the author's haunting vision of the future. The book has been adapted into television programmes, films, radio broadcasts and plays. In 2003, the book was number 8 on BBC's survey The Big Read. It was 6th and 13th on the reader's and editor's list of Modern Library 100 Best Novels, respectively. In 2005, it was added to the 100 Best English Language Novel from 1923 to 2005 by TI

              My child is notorious, mischievous, stubborn. He is aggressive, disobedient and always in a mood of fight. He does not care for school and study. Remains busy with his smartphone. When obstructed, starts arguing. Generally, these are some of the complaints that every parent is re...ady to put forward. For every single mistake, parents are quick to scold and rebuke their children but they do not try to find out the reasons for their behavior. It is not that children suddenly develop all these traits in a day. It is a process of learning things that gradually thrives on what is available for them to learn from the people around. In the fast pace lifestyle of modern parents, children are losing not only their childhood but it is getting worse and becoming insecure. In addition to schooling, children should be made aware of qualities such as self-restraint, service-feeling, duty-consciousness, labour, sacrifice, goodwill, dedication etc. Undoubtedly the best school for learning these qualities is their own family. The very purpose of this book is to enable parents to grow their children as a good human being over and above their school education. Contents: 1. The Purpose of the Book 2. The Family Atmosphere 3. School Environment 4. Influence of Friends 5. The Impact of Modern Life 6. Technology 7. On-Line Threats for Children 8. Video Games 9. Blue Whale and other Dangerous Games 10.

              No other narrative account of Abraham Lincoln's life has inspired such widespread acclaim as Lord Charnwood's Abraham Lincoln: A Complete Biography. Lord Charnwood has given us the most complete interpretation of Lincoln as yet produced, and he has presented it in such artistic f...orm that it may well become a classic. Many contemporary historians consider this thorough and superbly crafted work the quintessential biography of one of America's greatest presidents. Charnwood's study of Lincoln's statesmanship introduced generations of Americans to the life and politics of Lincoln, and the author's observations are so comprehensive and well supported that any serious study of Lincoln must respond to his conclusions. Lord Charnwood, a British by birth, was a man of many affairs and much learning. He had training in historical research and his work exhibits evidences of industrious and careful investigation. He made close examination of American newspapers of the period covered, and has had access to original manuscript archives in the State and Navy departments at Washington. This is essential reading for anyone interested in Abraham Lincoln, the Civil War, or American political history. ------------------------------------------------------------ Praise for Abraham Lincoln: Lord Charnwood has given us the most complete interpretation of Lincoln as yet produced, and he has presented it in such artistic form that it may well become a classic . ---American Historical Review This book is bound to take first rank in the literature of Lincoln, and in many respects it may be pronounced the best of the biographies . ---The Nation Lord Charnwood's remains the best Lincoln biography . ---The Weekly Standard ------------------------------------------------------------ ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Lord Charnwood, a British by birth, was a man of many affairs and much learning.

              The author of 'The Science of Getting Rich' brings you 'The Science of Being Great'. Wallace D. Wattles introduced the world to the power of positive thinking. Greatness is equally inherent in all and therefore every person may become great. Man may overcome both heredity and cir...cumstances by exercising the inherent creative power of the soul. Talent may merely be one faculty developed out of proportion to other faculties, but genius is the union of man and God in the acts of the soul. Great men are always greater than their deeds. They are in connection with a reserve of power that is without limit. We do not know where the boundary of the mental powers of man is; we do not even know that there is a boundary.
