              Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East
                

              Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East (Audio CD / Audio, Library ed.)

              By Oren, Senior Fellow Michael B, PH.D; Read by Whitfield, Robert

              In Israel and the West, it is called the Six Day War. In the Arab world, it is known as the June War, or simply as the Setback. Never has a conflict so short, unforeseen, and largely unwanted by both sides so transformed the world. The Yom Kippur War, the war in Lebanon, the Camp... David accords, the controversy over Jerusalem and Jewish settlements in the West Bank, the intifada, and the rise of Palestinian terror are all part of the outcome of those six days of intense Arab-Israeli fighting in the summer of 1967. Writing with a novelist's command of narrative and a historian's grasp of fact and motive, Michael B. Oren spotlights all the participants--Arab, Israeli, Soviet, and American--that were involved in this earth-shaking clash. Drawing on thousands of top-secret documents and exclusive personal interviews, he recreates the regional and international context that, by the late 1960s, virtually assured an Arab-Israeli conflagration. A towering work of history and an enthralling human narrative, Six Days of War is the most important book on the Middle East conflict to appear in a generation.

              Immanuel Kant taught and wrote prolifically about physical geography yet never traveled further than forty miles from his home in Konigsberg. How appropriate it is then that in his philosophy he should deny that all knowledge was derived from experience. Kant's aim was to restore... metaphysics. He insisted that all experience must conform to knowledge. According to Kant, space and time are subjective; along with various categories, they help us to see the phenomena of the world though never its true reality. In Kant in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Kant s life and ideas and explains their influence on man s struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Kant s work, a brief list of suggested readings for those who wish to delve deeper, and chronologies that place Kant within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

              Aristotle wrote on everything from the shape of seashells to sterility, from speculations on the nature of the soul to meteorology, poetry, art, and even the interpretation of dreams. Apart from mathematics, he transformed every field of knowledge that he touched. Above all, Aris...totle is credited with the founding of logic. When he first divided human knowledge into separate categories, he enabled our understanding of the world to develop in a systematic fashion. In Aristotle in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern offers a concise, expert account of Aristotle s life and ideas and explains their influence on man s struggle to understand his existence in the world. The book also includes selections from Aristotle s work, a brief list of suggested readings for those who wish to delve deeper, and chronologies that place Aristotle within his own age and in the broader scheme of philosophy.

              Mere Christianity is C. S. Lewis' forceful and accessible doctrine on Christian belief. First heard as informal radio broadcasts and then published as three separate books--The Case for Christianity, Christian Behavior, and Beyond Personality--Mere Christianity brings together wh...at Lewis sees as the fundamental truths of his religion. Rejecting the boundaries that divide Christianity's many denominations, C. S. Lewis finds a common ground on which all those who have Christian faith can stand together, proving that at the center of each there is something, or a Someone, who against all divergences of belief, all differences of temperament, all memories of mutual persecution, speaks with the same voice. This recording also includes Lewis' erudite essay The Abolition of Man, in which he eloquently argues for a better standard of public education that would include reading and writing lessons grounded in moral reasoning.

Set in the years of sudden prosperity following World War II, in the mansions and boardrooms of the Van Zale family, Sins of the Fathers is the story of a ruthless dynas...tic struggle to control the Van Zale fortune. From generation to generation, this obsession possesses the rival claimants, eventually destroying their happiness and their lives. When the world of the Van Zales--with its servants and country houses, European summers and Bar Harbor clambakes, polite marriages and discreet affairs--begins to fall apart, we begin to see this glamorous sphere for what it really is: rife with ruthless, power-hungry men, fortune hunters, secret sex, blackmail, and violence.
