The late great Dubliner, Ronnie Drew, was six months into writing his biography when he was diagnosed with cancer. He had produced warm, witty and insightful material that made it clear that he was a wonderful writer as well as a great singer and storyteller. With the encouragement of his wife Deirdre and his family, he continued to think about the book and conducted a number of interviews to keep things ticking over until he was well enough to resume work on it. But sadly, much as he wanted to, Ronnie did not get to finish his story. However, with the whole-hearted co-operation of his daughter and son, Cliodhna and Phelim, it has been possible to put together Ronnie's work on his memoir along with his other writings, interviews with Cliodhna and Phelim, a wealth of photographs and other material from the family archive, and contributions from close friends, to create a book that is a wonderful portrait of, and a fitting and loving tribute to, the man Bono called 'the king of Ireland'.

It is arguably Confucianism, not Communism, which lies at the core of China's deepest sense of self. Although reviled by Chinese intellectuals of the 1950s-1990s, who spoke of it as "yellow silt clotting the arteries of the country," Confucianism has defied eradication, remaining a fundamental part of the nation's soul for 2500 years. And now, as China assumes greater ascendancy on the world economic stage, it is making a strong comeback as a pragmatic philosophy of personal as well as corporate transformation, popular in both home and boardroom. What is this complex system of ideology that stems from the teachings of a remarkable man called Confucius (Kongzi), who lived in the distant sixth century BCE? Though he left no writings of his own, the oral teachings recorded by the founder's disciples in the Analects left a profound mark on later Chinese politics and governance. They outline a system of social cohesiveness dependent upon personal virtue and self-control. For Confucius, society's harmony relied upon the appropriate behaviour of each individual within the social hierarchy; and its emphasis on practical ethics has led many to think of Confucianism as a secular philosophy rather than a religion. In this new, comprehensive introduction, Ronnie Littlejohn argues rather that Confucianism is profoundly spiritual, and must be treated as such. He offers full coverage of the tradition's sometimes neglected metaphysics, as well as its varied manifestations in education, art, literature and culture.

As memories of the Cold War recede, it becomes more and more difficult to remember what it was about and why it evoked such feelings of intensity and fatalism. Fortunately, we have a gold mine of movies and novels to help us recall why an entire generation of Americans grew up ducking under school desks in air raid drills and stocking the family bomb shelter. Cold War Fantasies retrieves those times, based on the idea that a nation's history, self-concept, and collective anxiety are reflected in popular culture. In Cold War Fantasies, Ronnie Lipschutz combines an historical account of foreign and domestic politics from 1945 to 1995 with summaries and analyses of thirty novels and films contemporaneously published and produced. Lipschutz rejects the standard line on the Cold War and critically examines the impacts and effects of language and images on politics. Viewing those films and reading those novels enables the reader to come away with a clearer sense of how people felt during the Cold War period about themselves, about 'the enemy, ' and about the world while living in the shadow of the atomic bomb."

Wer das Geschlechtsregister in Genesis 5 beim Lesen der Bibel nicht einfach so als unwichtiges und uninteressantes Geschlechtsregister kurz überliest, um dann zu Kapitel 6 zu kommen, sondern sich Zeit nimmt, Genesis 5 etwas genauer zu betrachten, dem werden sich beim Lesen einige Fragen stellen. Kann man anhand der Chronologie in Genesis 5 das Alter der Erde vor der Sintflut bestimmen, wenn man die angegebenen Zahlen zusammenrechnet? Denn in Genesis 5 werden die Geschlechter von Adam bis Noah angegeben. Die Antwort wäre einfach ja, wenn einerseits die Chronologie keine Lücken zwischen den aufgezählten Namen hat und andererseits die Zahlenangaben in der Bibel stimmen und drittens man davon ausgeht, dass man die Bibel an dieser Stelle als wissenschaftliches Dokument auffassen kann. Diese Fragen, die sich in Zusammenhang mit Genesis 5 stellen, werde ich in dieser Ausarbeitung behandeln. Um zu einem Ergebnis zu kommen, muss zuerst einmal gefragt werden, ob es eine genaue Überlieferung von Genesis 5 gibt.

Trap life will never be the same again once these illuminating street scriptures hit the streets and the jails throughout the nation. This classic urban literature contains timeless knowledge, wisdom and understanding with real stories from a young street hustler/up in coming rapper who reveals his own experiences of THE TRAP and delivers messages that honorable street legends like Larry Hoover might teach if he was still able to get his word out to the streets. Ronnie Bo is a modern day Moses of the urban culture who comes in the form of a dope boy as God’s divine messenger. THE TRAP shall be revered by rappers just like the Bible is revere d by Christians. Nevertheless, Ronnie Bo hereby insinuates that mainstream music overseers are participating in the government conspiracy to mislead black youths by prohibiting artists of his kind from clinching mainstream attention; implying that 2Pac was assassinated so that Jay-Z and other influential artists could take the spotlight and mislead our culture and that real niggaz have been hindered from holding the preeminence that 2Pac had in the game ever since. Knowing that his music career would be hindered by the industry if he had taken the approach of attempting to enlighten the urban culture through his music, Ronnie Bo decided to provide us with his illuminating guidance through a book—THE TRAP. Ronnie Bo is a real street nigga with a lot of empowering nwoledge. I have read many great books in my lifetime from “The Art of War” to the “48 Laws of Power” and I even wrote a book of my own but I could honestly say that “THE TRAP” is one of the most indispensable books that has ever been written. --Pimpin Ken, author of Pimpology: 48 Laws of the Game

Ronnie Irani had an extraordinary career as a first class cricketer and is now a star broadcaster with talkSport. He grew up in Bolton and has his professional debut with Lancashire aged just 16. But frustrated at constantly playing in the 'stiffs', Ronnie took his courage in both hands and moved to Essex - even though he was only vaguely aware it was somewhere near the Dartford Tunnel. He became one of the county's all-time great players, went on to captain them to three trophies and became a legend with the fans. Ronnie is typically honest about his relationships in the game - good and bad; he relates how he used unconventional medical advice to overcome career threatening injuries; he takes you out to the crease and back in the dressing room; he gives you vivid insights into the humour and the heartache, the trials and the triumphs of being a top sports star. And time and time again he shows why he became a favourite with cricket supporters around the world and why Frank Dick added: 'Telling Ronnie Irani that what he wants to achieve can't be done is like lighting a fuse.'

For the last 150 years the historiography of the Crusades has been dominated by nationalist and colonialist discourses in Europe and the Levant. These modern histories have interpreted the Crusades in terms of dichotomous camps, Frankish and Muslim. In this revisionist study, Ronnie Ellenblum presents an interpretation of Crusader historiography that instead defines military and architectural relations between the Franks, local Christians, Muslims and Turks in terms of continuous dialogue and mutual influence. Through close analysis of siege tactics, defensive strategies and the structure and distribution of Crusader castles, Ellenblum relates patterns of crusader settlement to their environment and demonstrates the influence of opposing cultures on tactics and fortifications. He argues that fortifications were often built according to economic and geographic considerations rather than for strategic reasons or to protect illusory 'frontiers', and that Crusader castles are the most evident expression of a cultural dialogue between east and west.

The concept of transformation has long been known to the sciences and has been around in the popular vocabulary for several decades. Because it has never been fully developed as a managed process and applied to our organizations, the way in which we have been trying to deal with the complex issues we face today is looking increasingly inadequate. Transformation management, argue the authors of this inspirational book, now provides the opportunity for the application of the first significant world-wide innovation in the way we manage since Drucker put management itself on the map in the 1950s. In a book that draws on seminal theses and practical examples from the four corners of the world, Ronnie Lessem and Alexander Schieffer provide leaders, students of leadership, managers and change agents with a trans-culturally tested, integrated approach to leadership and management. Only through a redefinition of what leadership, management and entrepreneurship amount to, say the authors, can organizations be transformed into sustainable enterprises capable of dealing with the burning issues of our time. Leaders are coming to realise that it is no longer possible for organizations to operate in any sort of isolation from the society and the wider world in which they exist, but paying lip service to notions of either social responsibility or globality is not good enough. From this indispensable book, those whose enterprises are to have any hope of becoming authentically socially responsible or authentically global will learn to understand and activate the process that dynamically links any organization with the society in which it is embedded and that links the local with the global. The practice of transformation management is about creating real value... for organizations, people, and society. This book, from the Transformation and Innovation Series, makes that practice possible.

Ronnie Barker was one of our most respected and best-loved comedy actors and here, in this fascinating biography, Richard Webber delves deep in to the heart of Barker's life and career, peppering his narrative with original and incisive memories from some of Barker's closest contemporaries, including Ronnie Corbett, Michael Palin and Barry Cryer. Star of the much-adored comedy classics Porridge, The Two Ronnies - one of the most successful and long-running television comedy shows ever on British television - and Open All Hours, Ronnie Barker was universally admired by the public and industry insiders alike. From his early days writing for and performing skits on The Frost Report right up to his retirement in 1988, he lit up television screens across the country with his wonderful gift for comedy and his remarkable skill for character acting. Beyond his performances on the stage and screen, Barker was also an accomplished comedy writer, providing many of the sketches and songs for The Two Ronnies and contributing material to a number of other television and radio shows. And despite his retirement he retained pole position in the public's affection, returning to the screen in 1999 to team up with his erstwhile comedy partner and great friend Ronnie Corbett for a Two Ronnies night on BBC1, followed by a BAFTA tribute in 2004 and a final appearance on television in 2005 on The Two Ronnies Christmas Sketchbook. Effortlessly funny, universally adored and an actor and writer responsible for some of Britain's best-loved and most-respected comedy, Ronnie Barker was a true comedy legend. Here he's brought to the page in winning style as he's remembered by those who best loved and knew him.
