Jack Kemp: The Bleeding-Heart Conservative Who ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The purpose of politics is not to defeat your opponent as much as it is to provide superior leadership and better ideas than the opposition. - Jack Kemp The late 1970s were miserable for America. It was the post-Vietnam, post-Watergate era, a time of high unemployment, ruinous inflation, gasoline lines, Communist advances, and bottomed-out US morale. In the 1980s it all turned around: "stagflation" ended, and nearly two decades of prosperity ensued. The Soviet Union retreated then collapsed. America again believed in itself. And around the world, democratic capitalism was deemed "the end of history". Ronald Reagan's policies sparked the American renaissance, but the Gipper's leadership is only part of the story. The economic theory that underpinned America's success was pioneered by a star professional quarterback turned self-taught intellectual and "bleeding-heart conservative": Jack Kemp. Kemp's role in a pivotal period in American history is at last illuminated in this first-ever biography, which also has lessons for the politics of today. Kemp was the congressional champion of supply-side economics - the idea that lowering taxes would foster growth. Even today, almost no one advocates a return to a top income tax rate of 70 percent. Kemp didn't just challenge the Democratic establishment. He also encouraged his fellow Republicans to be growth (not austerity) minded, open their tent to minorities and blue-collar workers, battle poverty and discrimination, and once again become "the party of Lincoln". Kemp approached politics the same way he played quarterback for the Buffalo Bills: with a refusal to accept defeat. Yet he also was incapable of personal attack, arguing always on the level of ideas. He regarded opponents as adversaries, not enemies, and often cooperated with them to get things done.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Morton Kondracke, Fred Barnes.

Voices of Oman: A Different Mid-East Story
39,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Voices of Oman is a collection of eyewitness accounts of the most significant event of modern Omani history, the Omani Renaissance of 1970, which transformed a tent-in-the-desert culture into a modern urban state. The stories told in the 15 interviews contained in this work show the human dimension of a large historical change. Whatever cultural ground the reader may or may not share with these individuals, these stories show in poignant detail how we are all alike and how we are all different. History is the glue that holds a culture together, and Oman's past is filled with periods of glorious achievement that contribute to the contemporary Omani's sense of continuity and cultural identity. In the twentieth century the definition of history expanded to include, not just the exploits of the famous and powerful but also the stories of 'everyday' people. This large group, the overwhelming majority of any culture, in the past had no voice in the historical narrative. Voices of Oman draws from a diverse cross-section of society to tell the story of the Omani Renaissance in the words of those who lived the transition.
