Reflections on World Affairs by Ahmed H. Zewail Summary

"Ahmed Zewail is a rare individual indeed. His remarkable scope ranges from exploring the minutest interactions of particles to engaging the complexity of global politics and culture to pondering the far reaches of the universe. His rare qualities as a foundational scientist with a strong moral voice recalls other great figures of the past, such as Albert Einstein, whose clarity of mind and deeply humane nobility of spirit the world today so sorely lacks. This very rich book, Reflections on World Affairs: Peace and Politics, shines as a lamp of wisdom in these troubled, even dark, times." Nathan Gardels Editor-in-Chief The WorldPost "The author of this fascinating book, Professor Ahmed Zewail (Nobel Laureate, Chemistry 1999) is similar to Albert Einstein in that both are scientists and philosophers. Einstein made a scientific revolution (The Relativity Theory) and Zewail made another scientific revolution (Femtochemistry which allowed scientists to probe nature at its fundamental level). Both Einstein and Zewail have their progressive philosophical ideas concerning peace and development for all the countries of the world, in a context of dialogue of cultures." El Sayed Yassin Professor of Political Sociology The National Center for Research, Cairo, Egypt "The highly admirable Reflections on World Affairs: Peace and Politics written by Nobel Laureate Dr. Ahmed Zewail is highly recommended to anyone interested in getting an understanding of the events that have transpired in the Arab World. Dr Zewail succinctly analyzed contemporary issues facing Egypt, the Arab World and beyond as well as proposed solutions in a lucid language that touches the core of the challenges of the 21st Century. His thoughts on science and diplomacy are in my view a must read for every aspiring diplomat. I pay sincere tribute to Dr. Zewail and his efforts to help his country take the necessary steps forward towards a brighter future." Dr Nabil Elaraby Secretary General League of Arab States Why can't we have peace in our world, and what is its future? Can we provide basic education for all children? Why the decline in the Arab and Muslim World after reaching the acme of achievement? Is Islam the problem? In the land of opportunity -- the United States of America -- can the Republic maintain world leadership? Can the US sustain its leadership in innovation and prosperity, given the evolution of its culture and politics and the rise of other superpowers? In this century, how does knowledge acquisition through education and scientific research determine the "Wealth of Nations"? This volume, The Collected Work, is an assemblage of the author's "Reflections on World Affairs: Peace and Politics." The focus is on education, science for the have-nots -- as well as for the haves -- and science in diplomacy. Prof. Zewail believes that the use of the "soft power" of education, diplomacy, and economic development is far more effective, and much less expensive, than the hegemony of military aggression or politicized foreign aid. From his unique position straddling between East-West cultures and values, it is clear that most problems in our world arise from "not knowing" and "not having." It follows that education is critical, not only for enlightenment, or the "knowing," but also for boosting productivity and enhancing the "having."

Mountain of Paradise by Josef Chytry Summary

Mountain of Paradise challenges conventional taxonomies of world civilizations by introducing a new and formidable candidate: the civilization of Greater California presently incubating as the evolution of California into a veritable -nation-state- or -world commonwealth- according to contemporary commentators and scholars. Through a series of reflective essays it clarifies the momentous implications of this claim by a thorough account of the genealogical origins of -California-, permutation into its speculative moment of self-identity thanks to prolonged creative interchange with European thought and philosophy, advancement to status of a socio-economic powerhouse by the 1950s and 1960s, invention of distinctly Californian variants of political economy by the 1970s and 1980s, and present domination over regions formerly classified as -Greater California-. In its range and originality <I>Mountain of Paradise constitutes a robust contribution to current political, social, economic and global thematics."

Teaching Jewish Civilization by Moshe Davis,International Center for University Teaching of Jewish Civilization Summary

Film and television have never been more prevalent or watched than they are now, yet we still have little understanding of how people process and make use of what they see. And though we acknowledge the enormous role the media plays in our culture, we have only a vague sense of how it actually influences our attitudes and desires. In Perverse Spectators, Janet Staiger argues that studying the interpretive methods of spectators within their historical contexts is both possible and necessary to understand the role media plays in culture and in our personal lives. This analytical approach is applied to topics such as depictions of violence, the role of ratings codes, the horror and suspense genre, historical accuracy in film, and sexual identities, and then demonstrated through works like JFK, The Silence of the Lambs, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Psycho, and A Clockwork Orange. Each chapter shows a different approach to reconstructing audience responses to films, consistently and ingeniously finding traces of what would otherwise appear to be unrecoverable information. Using vivid examples, charting key concepts, and offering useful syntheses of long-standing debates, Perverse Spectators constitutes a compelling case for a reconsideration of the assumptions about film reception which underlie contemporary scholarship in media studies. Taking on widely influential theories and scholars, Perverse Spectators is certain to spark controversy and help redefine the study of film as it enters the new millennium.
