The Intimidation Game Book Excerpt:

From Kim Strassel-one of the preeminent political columnists writing today and member of the Wall Street Journal editorial board-comes an insightful, alarming look at how the Left, once the champion of civil liberties, is today orchestrating a coordinated campaign to bully Americans out of free speech. For nearly 40 years, Washington and much of the American public have held up disclosure and campaign finance laws as ideals, and the path to cleaner and freer elections. This book will show, through first-hand accounts, how both have been hijacked by the Left as weapons against free speech and free association, becoming the most powerful tools of those intent on silencing their political opposition. The Intimidation Game provides a chilling expose of political scare tactics and overreach, including: How Citizens United set off a wave of liberal harassment against conservative politicians The targeting of Tea Party groups by the IRS How Wisconsin prosecutors, state AGs, and a Democratic Congress shut down political activists and businesses The politicization by the Obama administration of a host of government agencies including the FEC, FCC and the SEC The Intimidation Game will shine a much-needed light on how liberal governance and the Democratic machine bullies the political process.

The Imitation Game Book Excerpt:

A New York Times Bestseller Selected as a 2017 ALA/YALSA Great Graphic Novel for Teens: Nonfiction Award winning authors Jim Ottaviani and Leland Purvis present a historically accurate graphic novel biography of English mathematician and scientist Alan Turing in The Imitation Game. English mathematician and scientist Alan Turing (1912–1954) is credited with many of the foundational principles of contemporary computer science. The Imitation Game presents a historically accurate graphic novel biography of Turing’s life, including his groundbreaking work on the fundamentals of cryptography and artificial intelligence. His code breaking efforts led to the cracking of the German Enigma during World War II, work that saved countless lives and accelerated the Allied defeat of the Nazis. While Turing’s achievements remain relevant decades after his death, the story of his life in post-war Europe continues to fascinate audiences today. Award-winning duo Jim Ottaviani (the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Feynman and Primates) and artist Leland Purvis (an Eisner and Ignatz Award nominee and occasional reviewer for the Comics Journal) present a factually detailed account of Turing’s life and groundbreaking research—as an unconventional genius who was arrested, tried, convicted, and punished for being openly gay, and whose innovative work still fuels the computing and communication systems that define our modern world. Computer science buffs, comics fans, and history aficionados will be captivated by this riveting and tragic story of one of the 20th century’s most unsung heroes.

Alan Turing The Enigma Book Excerpt:

A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER The official book behind the Academy Award-winning film The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley It is only a slight exaggeration to say that the British mathematician Alan Turing (1912-1954) saved the Allies from the Nazis, invented the computer and artificial intelligence, and anticipated gay liberation by decades--all before his suicide at age forty-one. This New York Times–bestselling biography of the founder of computer science, with a new preface by the author that addresses Turing's royal pardon in 2013, is the definitive account of an extraordinary mind and life. Capturing both the inner and outer drama of Turing’s life, Andrew Hodges tells how Turing’s revolutionary idea of 1936--the concept of a universal machine--laid the foundation for the modern computer and how Turing brought the idea to practical realization in 1945 with his electronic design. The book also tells how this work was directly related to Turing’s leading role in breaking the German Enigma ciphers during World War II, a scientific triumph that was critical to Allied victory in the Atlantic. At the same time, this is the tragic account of a man who, despite his wartime service, was eventually arrested, stripped of his security clearance, and forced to undergo a humiliating treatment program--all for trying to live honestly in a society that defined homosexuality as a crime. The inspiration for a major motion picture starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley, Alan Turing: The Enigma is a gripping story of mathematics, computers, cryptography, and homosexual persecution.

Alan Turing The Enigma Book Excerpt:

The official book behind the Academy Award-winning film The Imitation Game, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley Alan Turing was the mathematician whose cipher-cracking transformed the Second World War. Taken on by British Intelligence in 1938, as a shy young Cambridge don, he combined brilliant logic with a flair for engineering. In 1940 his machines were breaking the Enigma-enciphered messages of Nazi Germany’s air force. He then headed the penetration of the super-secure U-boat communications. But his vision went far beyond this achievement. Before the war he had invented the concept of the universal machine, and in 1945 he turned this into the first design for a digital computer. Turing's far-sighted plans for the digital era forged ahead into a vision for Artificial Intelligence. However, in 1952 his homosexuality rendered him a criminal and he was subjected to humiliating treatment. In 1954, aged 41, Alan Turing took his own life.

The Society Individual Conflict in Morten Tyldum s Film The Imitation Game 2014 Book Excerpt:

Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Communications - Interpersonal Communication, grade: 86, LCC International University, course: Interpersonal Communication, language: English, abstract: "The Imitation Game" (2014) is a historical drama movie directed by Morten Tyldum based on the book "Alan Turing: The Enigma" by Andrew Hodges. The film is about life of a famous British mathematician and cryptanalyst Alan Turing, who is famous by the deciphering of the German Enigma coding machine during the World War II. On the one hand, the movie tells a story of a person with a brilliant mind who changed the course of the world history, but on the other hand, this film is a personal drama that depicts complicated relationships between Alan and other people. Alan has lack of communication skills and his perception of the reality differs from others’ ones. Being misunderstood and rejected by people because of the peculiarity during his college years, Turing closes himself from the world, except one friend. At the beginning of the World War II he joins the secret cryptographists’ team, creates a computer-prototype machine and solves the Enigma mystery. The film brightly shows main character’s communication difficulties and his inability to collaborate in a team. After years, being caught by a policeman, executed and suffered from the punishment, the only one person who could understand him, Joan Clarke, visits him and witnesses his mental and health problems – the results of the execution. I found it very interesting to analyze the development of the relationships between Turing and other people in the movie, how he confronts and deals with life and communication difficulties, and also Turing’s personality. The film’s thread of society’s suppressing on Alan and, eventually, death from it, also shows an inability of the society to accept extraordinary individuals. That is why I chose three themes to analyze and provide examples from the film – perception, identity and relationship maintenance. The purpose of my paper is to show that Alan Turing tries to understand the society, but the society does not want to understand and to admit him.

Territorial Games Book Excerpt:

Territorial games are the unfortunate reality of the workplace, says behavioral scientist and corporate peacemaker Annette Simmons in this provocative and practical book. But the good news is that these instinctual games are more like bad habits than entrenched, compulsive behaviors. And bad habits can be changed. Territorial Games explains what emotions are driving the behaviors and how to recognize which game is being played. It supplies real-life scenarios that further clarify the behaviors and self-tests to uncover your own predilection for playing each game. And, best of all, Territorial Games supplies positive strategies for combating workplace turf wars.

Hijacked Book Excerpt:

In this four volume series, Hijacked!: How Dr. King's Dream Became a Nightmare, author Clarence Washington Sr. dissects Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream and explores how our failure to adhere to its principles has allowed the dream to be hijacked and turned to a nightmare—and it's time to wake up. In the third volume of the Hijacked! collection, The Nightmare, the author details the devastating destruction of the lives of an enormous number of poor, disadvantaged, and middleclass people. This represents the destruction of the American way of life as a direct result of the hijack of Dr. King's dream—a dream that is so inseparably connected to the American dream. Today, America could be depicted as a waning great person who is standing on the edge of a tall building at the top of the world, looking around in deep contemplation—not knowing exactly what to do next. If the winds of change blow too hard, this wavering person could lose their focus, fall, and plunge to their death—never again to regain their greatness. To step back from the edge, we must all do our part to make King's dream a reality instead of watching it morph into something dark. The Nightmare, is an exposition of the tragic evidence of America's imminent loss of her exceptional nation status and the opportunity to make Dr. King’s dream a reality. For the full dissection of Dr. King's dream and how our failure to adhere to its principles has led to a nightmare, explore the other volumes in Hijacked!: How Dr. King's Dream Became a Nightmare. Other volumes in this series focus on the dream, the hijack itself, and how we can recover.

Beyond Blurred Lines Book Excerpt:

From its origins in academic discourse in the 1970s to our collective imagination today, the concept of “rape culture” has resonated in a variety of spheres, including television, gaming, comic book culture, and college campuses. Beyond Blurred Lines traces ways that sexual violence is collectively processed, mediated, negotiated, and contested by exploring public reactions to high-profile incidents and rape narratives in popular culture. The concept of rape culture was initially embraced in popular media – mass media, social media, and popular culture – and contributed to a social understanding of sexual violence that mirrored feminist concerns about the persistence of rape myths and victim-blaming. However, it was later challenged by skeptics who framed the concept as a moral panic. Nickie D. Phillips documents how the conversation shifted from substantiating claims of a rape culture toward growing scrutiny of the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses. This, in turn, renewed attention toward false allegations, and away from how college enforcement policies fail victims to how they endanger accused young men. Ultimately, she successfully lends insight into how the debates around rape culture, including microaggressions, gendered harassment and so-called political correctness, inform our collective imaginations and shape our attitudes toward criminal justice and policy responses to sexual violence.

Street Book Excerpt:

You will never live a happy life leave alone achieve your dreams and reach your destiny if you fail to find your purpose in life. Every page of this book will help you to not only find your identity but also become conversant about the tenacity you have towards achieving your dream. This discovery will subject you to a splendid life of purpose and passion until you get to your destiny. This book is for teens and young adults who are looking forward to rise above their fears, depart from mediocrity afoot a complete transformation and efficacy of their lives by first realizing who they are and finding their Gods given purpose in life before they embark on a life journey with a sole purpose of becoming successful in all areas of their lives if they adhere to their purpose and live their passion. Parents: As you embark on a venture to gentrify your teens life, this book will enhance your parenting acumen and help you to undertake your parenting responsibility of inculcating your teens and young adults with the moral responsibilities that they need in order to always make positive decisions not worth regrets in their present and future lives. Since empowerment is a very vital act of mentorship that fosters self-identity and ameliorates an individuals quality of life, ignorance is bliss only when the knowledge of God is not involved. Its through our relationship with God that we come to find our purpose, gain confidence, become courageous and suppress our fears in life as we progress towards our destiny. As we seek to find our God mandated purpose in our lives, its very imperative to know that life comes in phases where victory of your present stage invigorates your progress in the next stage. Nevertheless, our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. Its our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Most of the times we ask ourselves; who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and successful? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your constrained thinking does not serve or impact the world. Your life is not a mistake. Every human being has a purpose which should dictate him or her to live a purpose driven life. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. Its not just in some of us; its in everyone. As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to follow suit. As we are emancipated from our own fear, our presence and perseverance automatically emancipates others.

The Republic of Virtue Book Excerpt:

Public corruption is the silent killer of our economy. We’ve spawned the thickest network of patronage and influence ever seen in any country, a crony capitalism in which business partners with government and transfers wealth from the poor to the rich. This is a betrayal of the Framers’ vision for America, and of the Constitution they saw as an anti-corruption covenant. Most Americans get it, and this explains the otherwise improbable rise of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. When a country is corrupt, legislative efforts to make things better can actually make them worse. That’s what has happened with our campaign finance laws, says the conservative, and not entirely without reason. We’ve criminalized political speech and sent the message that it’s unsafe to get involved in politics without a lawyer at one’s side. Donor disclosure requirements have also unleashed Internet mobs that attack political opponents. We’d be better off without any of them, Buckley argues in this provocative book. They’re a net with the curious feature that the big fish swim through safely while only the little fish are caught, and those with the wrong political beliefs. All such rules are a disaster, and should be replaced by a different set of laws that focus on crony capitalism and the nexus of legislators and lobbyists that prey on our economy.

Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous Book Excerpt:

A frontline account of how to fight corruption, from Nigeria's former finance minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala. In Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has written a primer for those working to root out corruption and disrupt vested interests. Drawing on her experience as Nigeria's finance minister and that of her team, she describes dangers, pitfalls, and successes in fighting corruption. She provides practical lessons learned and tells how anti-corruption advocates need to equip themselves. Okonjo-Iweala details the numerous ways in which corruption can divert resources away from development, rewarding the unscrupulous and depriving poor people of services. Okonjo-Iweala discovered just how dangerous fighting corruption could be when her 83-year-old mother was kidnapped in 2012 by forces who objected to some of the government's efforts at reforms led by Okonjo-Iweala—in particular a crackdown on fraudulent claims for oil subsidy payments, a huge drain on the country's finances. The kidnappers' first demand was that Okonjo-Iweala resign from her position on live television and leave the country. Okonjo-Iweala did not resign, her mother escaped, and the program of economic reforms continued. “Telling my story is risky,” Okonjo-Iweala writes. “But not telling it is also dangerous.” Her book ultimately leaves us with hope, showing that victories are possible in the fight against corruption.

The Bletchley Park Enigma Book Excerpt:

Are you a movie fan looking forward to seeing The Imitation Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch? Or a World War II buff with a particular interest in code breaking? Alan Turing, the man who Winston Churchill described as the single biggest contributor to the Allied victory over the Nazis, was a genius of our lifetime and father of the modern day computer. That we can now sit and read books on a computer screen is largely thanks to his early work developing the world's first computer. His code-breaking efforts during the Second World War are thought to have brought forward the end of the war by two years, a remarkable achievement. Recently, recognition of Turing's work has exploded. Bletchley Park where Turing worked during WWII has been restored. It now acts as a major tourist destination and place of historical interest. Turing's story has also now been dramatized in a major new movie starring actor-of-the-moment, Benedict Cumberbatch. The Imitation Game has received rave early reviews and is currently on short lists for Oscar success. Cumberbatch, best-known to us as the inimitable detective in the British TV series, Sherlock, brings this intriguing and heroic man to life with his own unique acting style. In doing so, he tells his story to a generation who need to know just what he achieved and how much he changed the world. But what was this strange, socially awkward man, painfully inept at the common niceties of life, really about? The Bletchley Park Enigma: 200+ Facts on the Story of Alan Turing That Inspired the Smash Hit Movie The Imitation Game Starring Benedict Cumberbatch details the real life story of Alan Turing, his ground-breaking work, his complexities, the ultimate tragedy of his life and his posthumous success.
