Brasilia, Caracas, Mexico City, Rio de Janeiro ... these are cities synonymous with some of the most innovative and progressive architecture of the twentieth century. The period between 1930 and 1960 in particular, when many Latin American economies expanded rapidly, was an era of incomparable inventiveness and creative production, as the various governments strove to shake off their colonial pasts and make public their modernising intentions. This book focuses on major state-funded architectural projects, featuring not only the high-profile prestigious building like the House of Representatives in Barsilia but also social architecture such as schools and los-cost housing developments. Architects like Pani, Costa, Reidy and Niemeyer, who undertook this work with considerable autonomy and significant financial resources, in effect became social planners, their avant-garde aesthetic and technical experimentation often being teamed with radical social agendas. By 1960, the year in which Brasilia was inaugurated, economic growth in the region was slowing and faith in the modernist project in general was faltering. The English-speaking world, which had previously endorsed and even envied Latin American architectural production, changed its opinion and largely dismissed it from the history of twentieth-century architecture. Building the New World redresses the balance. It provides an accessible introduction to the most important examples of state-funded modernism in Latin America during a period of almost unimaginable optimism, when politicians and architects saw architecture as, literally, a way of building themselves out of underdevelopment and into the new world of a culturally rich and socially inclusive future .

THE JOURNEY TO ATLANTICA Aztlantica is the spiritual homeland of the Meso-America Quetzalcatl Prophecy. The Journey attempts to bring forth new insights, hidden history, and a future in peril. The Journey to Aztlantica is a call for awakening and the need to transition from an old degenrating world to the promise of a sustainable a new world that will be able to survive the perials of the future . The Journey expresses concern about the degenerating trajectory of capitalistic economic and political systems. About their questionable influence on the future stabilities of world societies and governments. The old-world economic worldview has reached it's limitation. It is on the path of regression and is condusive to social dis-integration. This book alludes to the need for individuals to prepare themselves to confront and survive the calamities of climatic change and man-made calamities of the future. The Journey calls for human evolution. For the building of an alternative economic system as a way to change the human character and behavior. A system that would support the principles of natural human evolution, a more equalitarian society and would support the development of a humanitarian worldview. The Journey proposes the establishment of new social, cultural, educational and spiritual models. It calls for establishing a philosophical model based on a respectful and balanced relationship with the natural environment and within the human community. The Journey proposes a new spiritual movement for the new world, an organized religion that would be compatible with the new worldview of Aztlantica. The old religions are an integral part of a degenerating old world. Aztlantica calls for the refinement and rejuvenation of human cultures in order to promote respect, peace, balance, and harmony around the world. The Journey stresses the need to crossover to a new worldview reality, the circular worldview. In order for humanity to survive adequately in a perialous future and in order to create a sustainable world in which the human community can live, prosper and advance: individuals must first transform themselves before they can transform into the future.

Building New Worlds is a history of a pivotal decades-long episode in the birth and growth of today's science fiction. Enthralling and amusing, it's written with affection and wit. This is no dry, modishly theorized academic analysis. Nor is it a rah-rah celebration of the "Good Old Days." Here is a candid and astute reader's response to a magazine that, by today's standards, was often comically bad--but was also immensely important in its time, and improved, like the Little Engine (or maybe Starship) That Could. New Worlds is best remembered today as the fountainhead of the New Wave of audacious experimental SF in the second half of the 1960s, under editor Michael Moorcock. But these first pioneering issues, from 1946-59, were edited by the magazine’s founder, John "Ted" Carnell (1912-72). Carnell was a pillar of the old-style UK SF establishment, but gamely supportive of innovators--most famously, of the brilliant J. G. Ballard, Brian W. Aldiss, and John Brunner, whose early work he nurtured. The story of how New Worlds got started, survived, and got better is essential to the history of the genres of the fantastic in the UK--and indeed, the world. And huge fun to read. Watch for the companion volumes, New Worlds: Before the New Wave, and Strange Highways, dealing with New World's companion magazine, Science Fantasy.

Conflict among nations for forty-five years after World War II was dominated by the major bipolar struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union. With the end of the Cold War; states in differing legions of the world are taking their affairs more into their own hands and working out new arrangements for security that best suit their needs. This trend toward new &"regional orders&" is the subject of this book, which seeks both to document the emergence and strengthening of these new regional arrangements and to show how international relations theory needs to be modified to take adequate account of their salience in the world today. Rather than treat international politics as everywhere the same, or each region as unique, this hook adopts a comparative approach. It recognizes that, while regions vary widely in their characteristics, comparative analysis requires a common typology and set of causal variables. It presents theories of regional order that both generalize about regions and predict different patterns of conflict and cooperation from their individual traits. The editors conclude that, in the new world of regional orders, the quest for universal principles of foreign policy by great powers like the United States is chimerical and dangerous. Regional orders differ, and policy artist accommodate these differences if it is to succeed. Contributors are Brian L. Job, Edmund J. Keller, Yuen Foong Khong, David A. Lake, Steven E. Lobell, David R. Mares, Patrick M. Nlotgan. Paul A. Papayoanou, David J. Pervin, Philip G. Roeder, Richard Rosecrance and Peter Schott, Susan Shirk, Etel Solingen, and Arthur A. Stein.

Included are short biographies of conquistadors Hernan Cortez, Francisco Pizarro, Vasco Nunez de Balboa, Francisco Pizarro, Juan Ponce de Leon, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, Hernando de Soto, and Francisco Vasquez de Coronado, as well as early civil rights champion Bartolome de la Casas.

My Fight is a book Martin Bector has written following the book two books he has written entitled “The Funny Fight” and “With This Devotion; I love you”. He the oldest ancestry to this land called the United States of America. He will not gather his people because of the majority rule. It makes no sense to him to gather the minority to begin a fight with the majority for correction or control. He sees the better way by bringing world peace to be a better way to democracy than freedom. The fight for culture has just begun. The intelligence about this earth has not been recognized. The course of governing is with an area concern. The point of law was put in error as the right of the first born to bring the law to do the gathering of the people. The worship of the Coming of God began this error with the survival of the people in the identity to the cycle of this earth around the sun because the cycle of this earth about its axis was not recognized. The intelligence about this earth is a continuing around this earth that is being insulted. The author recognized this insult. He has charted this insult. He has put this insult to backlash and lash back bringing a temporary freedom to the continuing mind around this earth to reveal the truth. Once the truth was recognized, he began to search for ways to ignore the insult as he began to search ways to stop the insult.

In business, politics, marriage, indeed in any significant relationship, trust is the essential precondition upon which all real success depends. But what, precisely, is trust? How can it be achieved and sustained? And, most importantly, how can it be regained once it has been broken? In Building Trust, Robert C. Solomon and Fernando Flores offer compelling answers to these questions. They argue that trust is not something that simply exists from the beginning, something we can assume or take for granted; that it is not a static quality or "social glue." Instead, they assert that trust is an emotional skill, an active and dynamic part of our lives that we build and sustain with our promises and commitments, our emotions and integrity. In looking closely at the effects of mistrust, such as insidious office politics that can sabotage a company's efficiency, Solomon and Flores demonstrate how to move from na?ve trust that is easily shattered to an authentic trust that is sophisticated, reflective, and possible to renew. As the global economy makes us more and more reliant on "strangers," and as our political and personal interactions become more complex, Building Trust offers invaluable insight into a vital aspect of human relationships.

Television, radio, newspapers or the internet show a daily dismal world scenario. Every week, every month there is a major civil conflict or a terrorist attack somewhere. All over the world innocent are imprisoned, women are victims of domestic violence, are forced into underpaid labor or sex work. Children are still dying by the millions before they are five years old due to unsanitary conditions, lack of safe drinking water or malnourishment. Malaria and HIV-AIDS kill millions yearly and thousands of adolescents are kidnapped to become rebel soldiers. Autocratic governments deny democratic participation to the majority and suppress ferociously any popular peaceful manifestation. The worlds climate is now threatened due to man-made disequilibrium inflicted on the atmosphere by uncontrolled fumes and gas emissions of all types. Water sources are being poisoned by unscrupulous corporations dumping huge amounts of deadly chemicals into waterways. The inequality between rich and poor nations is so vast that 7 - 10% of the worlds population controls the natural and financial resources of the world at the expense of the rest who have no access to a minimum for survival. The reasons for this hellish situation are multiple and varied. They encompass deeply ingrained religious beliefs, unacceptable economic, military and power disparities, and uncontrolled moral degradation affecting all realms of everyday life. These problems have profound spiritual causes and thus require a spiritual perspective. Discover the origin of the new Divine Invitation and the specific solutions it offers for todays major world problems.
