“If you are planning to make accusations I’d advise you to get the evidence first. Otherwise I’d watch your mouth, Stasi-boy”. André Stacey’s life is turned upside down when an anonymous tip-off forces him to examine the behaviour of his colleagues, his own actions and aspirations and that of his company. It’s not easy for André when close allies suddenly seem to have another agenda. Are they naive? Are they turning a blind eye? Or are they involved? The Tightrope is a fast-paced management novel revealing how easily and unpredictably corruption and fraud can strike at the heart of your organisation. Through the eyes of André Stacey we learn how to recognise and overcome the political, practical and human challenges of dealing with corruption and fraud in our working lives.

This book expands upon the dialogue between the atheist philosopher Kai Nielsen and the Christian philosopher Hendrik Hart in the bookSearch for Community in A Withering Tradition. Collected here for the first time are the responses of several prominent Canadian philosophers to Nielsen's outspoken work in the philosophy of religion, including their responses to Hart's criticisms of Nielsen. New replies by Hart and Nielsen to these added voices are also included. This volume is of interest for students in the philosophy of religion who wish to examine the encounter between religious faith and secular humanism at the close of the twentieth century, an increasingly postmodern time in which the appeal to an a historical standard of rationality is no longer sought or even thought possible. This book tackles tough topics like the appropriate role of reason in the intellectual criticism and defense of faith, the limits of the rational justification of human knowledge, the role of pre-reflective commitments in human intellectual life, the nature of truth, and the possibility for peace in a world consisting of a plural and often violent collection of cultural and religious groups.

Human beings are both supremely rational and deeply superstitious, capable of believing just about anything and of questioning just about everything. Indeed, just as our reason demands that we know the truth, our skepticism leads to doubts we can ever really do so. In Walking the Tightrope of Reason, Robert J. Fogelin guides readers through a contradiction that lies at the very heart of philosophical inquiry. Fogelin argues that our rational faculties insist on a purely rational account of the universe, yet at the same time, the inherent limitations of these faculties ensure that we will never fully satisfy that demand. As a result of being driven to this point of paradox, we either comfort ourselves with what Kant called "metaphysical illusions" or adopt a stance of radical skepticism. No middle ground seems possible and, as Fogelin shows, skepticism, even though a healthy dose of it is essential for living a rational life, "has an inherent tendency to become unlimited in its scope, with the result that the edifice of rationality is destroyed." In much Postmodernist thought, for example, skepticism takes the extreme form of absolute relativism, denying the basis for any value distinctions and treating all truth-claims as equally groundless. How reason avoids disgracing itself, walking a fine line between dogmatic belief and self-defeating doubt, is the question Fogelin seeks to answer. Reflecting upon the ancient Greek skeptics as well as such thinkers as Hume, Kant, Wittgenstein, Nietzsche, and Whitman, this book takes readers into--and through--some of philosophy's most troubling paradoxes.

Seen through the eyes of an African, the Danes and their society appear in a refreshing light. Not much is left untouched in this concise and inspiring account. It touches on the Danes and their purported coldness, their monarchy, their welfare system, their spiritual life, gender roles, cuisine, pornography and even the Dane's sense of rhythm. From the early part of the account which captures the excitement and comic misunderstandings of living together with students from 37 different countries in an international folk high school, to the later part which details the struggles of an African to adapt to life in the Danish folk high schools; this book is also an exposé of folk high school life. Hilarious and provocative, insightful and educative; this is a book to be savoured.

Tightrope: A Racial Journey to the Age of Obama explores race and politics in the United States, addressing racial inequalities and injustices that have led to a point in history where, seemingly improbably, Americans have elected (and re-elected) a black man as president. We, as a nation, have taken precarious steps to arrive at the age of Obama, while remaining steeped in contradictions. Our steps on this racial tightrope are a work in progress—a history in the making—that will largely influence who we are and who we hope to become as Americans. Gail Garfield retraces our steps along this wavering racial tightrope, weaving in her own experiences, including her childhood in the Jim Crow south, with the nation’s broader racial history to trace the remarkable shift in America’s racial landscape. The divergent steps we have taken, teetering between regressive and progressive racial politics, between stifling continuity and meaningful change, have led us to where we now tread as a nation, in this new Age of Obama. The halting, swaying missteps created by racial fears, hatred, and anger reveal the important imprints of separation and difference, and the bold, assured steps open up possibilities for inclusion, acceptance, and belonging. Tightrope challenges readers to reflect on their own steps on the racial tightrope and to ask basic questions about racial identity and progress in the United States.

Marian Sutro has survived Ravensbruck and is back in dreary 1950s London trying to pick up the pieces of her pre-war life. Returned to an England she barely knows and a post-war world she doesn't understand Marian searches for something on which to ground the rest of her life. Family and friends surround her and a young RAF officer attempts to bring her the normalities of love and affection but she is haunted by her experiences and by the guilt of knowing that her contribution to the war effort helped lead to the development of the Atom Bomb. Where, in the complexities of peacetime, does her loyalty lie? When a mysterious Russian diplomat emerges from the shadows to draw her into the ambiguities and uncertainties of the Cold War she sees a way to make amends for the past and to renew the excitement of her double life. Simon Mawer's sense of time and place is perfect: Tightrope is a compelling novel about identity and deception which constantly surprises the reader.

Tightrope is Aidan Rooney s second collection, a richly intense exploration of loss and return. In its span of two worlds, the author s native Ireland and the shores south of Boston where he makes his home, alternating notes of tension and repose evoke love and love-loss. Two sequences anchor the collection and seek to salve heartbreak with restorations of beauty and peace: May Altar , a moving rumination on his mother s death, and Among the Wrecks in which he delves into the history of a nineteenth-century Irish-American family. The book counters upheaval with astounding balancing acts. Its meditations varied and various, playful, macaronic (and ablaze with already trademark verbal dexterity) reverberate in startling effects.

Spaceman and Blue track a trio of Vietnam veterans with murder on their minds As Saigon erupts into chaos, General Tran walks with the easy calm of a man with a plan. After years of working with the Americans, he has no intention of being left behind in Vietnam, and so he has arranged for an escape route. He is nearly home free when he hears footsteps behind him in the darkened alley. He knows then that he will never leave Saigon alive. Tran had planned to escape Vietnam with a cache of smuggled diamonds. Years later, the three Americans who helped him steal the stones want their piece of the haul—and will do anything to get ahold of it. As their search turns violent, they attract the attention of Blue Maguire and Spaceman Kowalski, a pair of LA cops whose oddball exteriors mask a toughness rarely seen outside the LAPD. To stop this trio of killers, they will have to be tougher than ever before.
