A New York Times Bestseller From one of our leading technology thinkers and writers, a guide through the twelve technological imperatives that will shape the next thirty years and transform our lives Much of what will happen in the next thirty years is inevitable, driven by technological trends that are already in motion. In this fascinating, provocative new book, Kevin Kelly provides an optimistic road map for the future, showing how the coming changes in our lives—from virtual reality in the home to an on-demand economy to artificial intelligence embedded in everything we manufacture—can be understood as the result of a few long-term, accelerating forces. Kelly both describes these deep trends—interacting, cognifying, flowing, screening, accessing, sharing, filtering, remixing, tracking, and questioning—and demonstrates how they overlap and are codependent on one another. These larger forces will completely revolutionize the way we buy, work, learn, and communicate with each other. By understanding and embracing them, says Kelly, it will be easier for us to remain on top of the coming wave of changes and to arrange our day-to-day relationships with technology in ways that bring forth maximum benefits. Kelly’s bright, hopeful book will be indispensable to anyone who seeks guidance on where their business, industry, or life is heading—what to invent, where to work, in what to invest, how to better reach customers, and what to begin to put into place—as this new world emerges.

More states and countries are passing right-to-die laws that allow the sick and suffering to end their lives at pre-planned moments, with the help of physicians. But The Inevitable moves beyond margins of the law to the people who are meticulously planning their final hours—far from medical offices, legislative chambers, hospital ethics committees, and polite conversation. Further still, it shines a light on the people who help them: loved ones and, sometimes, clandestine groups on the Internet that together form the “euthanasia underground.” Engelhart, a veteran journalist, focuses on six people representing different aspects of the right to die debate. Two are doctors: a California physician who runs a boutique assisted death clinic and has written more lethal prescriptions than anyone else in the U.S.; an Australian named Philip Nitschke who lost his medical license for teaching people how to end their lives painlessly and peacefully at “DIY Death” workshops. The other four chapters belong to people who said they wanted to die because they were suffering unbearably—of old age, chronic illness, dementia, and mental anguish—and saw suicide as their only option. Spanning North America, Europe, and Australia, The Inevitable offers a deeply reported and fearless look at a morally tangled subject. It introduces readers to ordinary people who are fighting to find dignity and authenticity in the final hours of their lives.

His vast ideas and dense prose could make each chapter its own book. Each of these 12 forces that are discussed are "inevitable" not in exactly how they are going to play out, but in that they will in some way over the next thirty years. While some may view a future so completely dictated by technology as frightening or dystopian, Kelly's version is quite the opposite. Kelly predicts a broad technological future of sharing and collaboration and touches on exactly how these larger forces, as well as the smaller cogs that drive them, are going to affect our daily lives. If you've ever been curious about the future of technology, this summary takes dense, overreaching ideas and makes them simple and easily digestible! Own Your Copy Today!

NEW BOOK BY DAMON WHITE. THE INEVITABLE VERSUS DESTINY is philosophical fiction, whereby, the two characters clash for conceptual superiority. The Inevitable, a force characterized by an insatiable desire for power and Destiny, an idea characterized by a benevolence to edify others by sharing wisdom and more, square off in face-offs. Example:"Destiny Reveals so that other revelations continue to open. The Inevitable Discloses so that other disclosures remain closed." The Inevitable attempts to use Destiny to use the rest of Us, while Destiny attempts to be used by Us to keep Us from being used by The Inevitable. Destiny is going to be used, Destiny just wants to be used properly. All too often we try to slip in The Inevitable in place of Our Destiny, and such leads to disastrous results and phony philosophical proclamations, such as, WAR IS INEVITABLE.If you have read another book like this one, it might have been the only other one.

While in the West 'the Caliphate" evokes overwhelmingly negative images, throughout Islamic history it has been regarded as the ideal Islamic polity. In the wake of the "Arab Spring" and the removal of long-standing dictators in the Middle East, in which the dominant discourse appears to be one of the compatibility of Islam and democracy, reviving the Caliphate has continued to exercise the minds of its opponents and advocates. Reza Pankhurst's book contributes to our understanding of Islam in politics, the path of Islamic revival across the last century and how the popularity of the Caliphate in Muslim discourse waned and later re-emerged. Beginning with the abolition of the Caliphate, the ideas and discourse of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hizb ut-Tahrir, al-Qaeda and other smaller groups are then examined. A comparative analysis highlights the core commonalities as well as differences between the various movements and individuals, and suggests that as movements struggle to re-establish a polity which expresses the unity of the ummah (or global Islamic community), the Caliphate has alternatively been ignored, had its significance minimised or denied, reclaimed and promoted as a theory and symbol in different ways, yet still serves as a political ideal for many.

"Death studies have, over the last twenty years, witnessed a flourishing of research and scholarship particularly in areas such as dying and bereavement, cultural practices and fear of dying. But, despite its importance, a specific focus on the nature of personal mortality has attracted surprisingly little attention. This book breaks new ground by bringing together available ideas and research on the meaning of one's own death. Its content is organized around the question of how an ongoing relationship might be possible when the threat of consciousness coming to an end points to an unthinkable and unspeakable nothingness. The book then argues that, despite this threat, an ongoing relationship with one's own death is still possible by means of conceptual devices that help shape personal mortality into a relatable object. Four of these devices, or 'enabling frames', are examined: essential structures, passionate suffusion, point-of-transition and self-generative process. While each frame conceptualizes mortality differently, they share a capacity to move it from unintelligibility to something we can think and speak about, thereby enabling us to maintain an ongoing engagement. The final chapters explore ways in which pursuing a relationship with our own deaths could become a normal and acceptable activity throughout our lives"--

In the hands of the state, music is a political tool. The Banda de Música del Estado de Oaxaca (State Band of Oaxaca, BME), a civil organization nearly as old as the modern state of Oaxaca itself, offers unique insights into the history of a modern political state. In The Inevitable Bandstand, Charles V. Heath examines the BME’s role as a part of popular political culture that the state of Oaxaca has deployed in an attempt to bring unity and order to its domain. The BME has always served multiple functions: it arose from musical groups that accompanied military forces as they trained and fought; today it performs at village patron saint days and at Mexico’s patriotic celebrations, propagating religions both sacred and civic; it offers education in the ways of liberal democracy to its population, once largely illiterate; and finally, it provides respite from the burdens of life by performing at strictly diversionary functions such as serenades and Sunday matinees. In each of these government-sanctioned roles, the BME serves to unify, educate, and entertain the diverse and fragmented elements within the state of Oaxaca, thereby mirroring the historical trajectory of the state of Oaxaca and the nation of Mexico from the pre-Hispanic and Spanish colonial eras to the nascent Mexican republic, from a militarized and fractured young nation to a consolidated postrevolutionary socialist state, and from a predominantly Catholic entity to an ostensibly secular one.

This is a book about change, not only what change is, but also how change affects us, our responses to change, and finally, a biblical model for overcoming change. You may ask, “Why a book about change?” The reason is that we live in a world of change. Change occurs in our lives on a daily basis. Change is the only thing that is constant. Look around you. Change is everywhere and occurs interpersonally, relationally, constantly (organizations either getting smaller or larger), technologically (increases are at an astronomical rate). Even the focus of the church changes as culture changes (sacred old hymns to contemporary music, and single pastor to multi-ministerial staffs), and on it goes. Change definitely is constant, and change is everywhere. “Robin Brumfield takes us by the hand with a Bible in the other hand, and walks along some Bible trails where change took place and helps us to see a reflection of our own existence in some of these experiences.” —Jim Futral Executive Director – Treasurer

Summary of The Inevitable by Kevin Kelly | Includes Analysis Preview: The Inevitable: Understanding the 12 Technological Forces That Will Shape Our Future is Kevin Kelly’s in-depth exploration of the imminent changes on the technological horizon that will ultimately impact all of humanity. Inevitability, in this context, is defined as a pattern that is unquestionably trending forward due to the ways in which technological developments favor certain functions and behaviors. However, inevitability does not mean that the future is already predetermined. Even with inevitable forces at work, there is much that people can still do to impact the purpose, meaning, and form of developing trends. For example, it was inevitable that mobile phones would become ubiquitous. But the specific development of the iPhone was not inevitable; it was shaped by corporations and consumers. All of the forces shaping the future are becoming, cognifying, flowing, screening, accessing, sharing, filtering, remixing, interacting, tracking, questioning, and beginning.

After seven years of service as the president of Tulane University, Scott Cowen watched the devastation of his beloved New Orleans at the hands of Hurricane Katrina. When federal, state, and city officials couldn't find their way to decisive action, Cowen, known for his gutsy leadership, quickly partnered with a coalition of civic, business, and nonprofit leaders looking to work around the old institutions to revitalize and transform New Orleans. This team led the charge to restore equilibrium and eventually to rebuild. For the past nine years, Cowen has continued this work, helping to bring the city of New Orleans back from the brink. The Inevitable City presents 10 principles that changed the game for this city, and, if adopted, can alter the curve for any business, endeavor, community—and perhaps even a nation.This is the story of the resurgence and reinvention of one of America's greatest cities. Ordinary citizens, empowered to actively rescue their own city after politicians and government officials failed them, have succeeded in rebuilding their world. Cowen was at the leading edge of those who articulated, shaped, and implemented a vision of transformative change that has yielded surprising social progress and economic growth: a drowned city identified with the shocking images of devastation and breakdown has transformed itself into a mecca of growth, opportunity, and hope.

Seth Masket's The Inevitable Party is a study of anti-party reforms and why they fail. Numerous reform movements over the past century have designated parties as the enemy of democracy, and they have found a willing ally in the American people in their efforts to rein in and occasionally root out parties. Masket investigates several of these anti-party reform efforts - from open primaries to campaign finance restrictions to nonpartisan legislatures - using legislative roll call votes, campaign donations patterns, and extensive interviews with local political elites. These cases each demonstrate parties adapting to, and sometimes thriving amidst, reforms designed to weaken or destroy them. The reason for these reforms' failures, the book argues, is that they proceed from an incorrect conception of just what a party is. Parties are not rigid structures that can be wished or legislated away; they are networks of creative and adaptive policy demanders who use their influence to determine just what sorts of people get nominated for office. Even while these reforms tend to fail, however, they impose considerable costs on society, usually reducing transparency and accountability in politics and government.

First published in 1953, Richard O’Connor’s classic biography of General Phillip Sheridan is a fascinating study that sheds new light on a great soldier and the bloody conflict in which he rose to prominence. General Sheridan was the mastermind behind the Union cavalry operations and distinguished himself at Murfreesboro and in the Chattanooga campaign. Commanding General of the U.S. Army, Ulysses S. Grant, recognizing Sheridan’s ability, appointed him head of the cavalry crops for the Army of the Potomac in 1864. General Sheridan led a daring raid during the Wilderness campaign that destroyed communications and supplies behind Lee’s lines and resulted in the defeat of Jeb Stuart at Yellow Tavern. His most brilliant success was in the Shenandoah Valley, where he rallied his men after Jubal Early’s surprise attack and won a decisive victory. After another important victory at the Battle of Five Forks, Sheridan pursued top army commander, Robert E. Lee, cutting off his lines of retreat at Appomattox and forcing the surrender. The author’s lively and informative account provides a vivid portrait of a dedicated soldier, the battles that he fought and the turbulent time in which he lived.

Middle-aged brothers Steven and George Henry Underwood find themselves in receipt of a large inheritance from their long-deceased father. A sizeable sum, the fortune comes with a condition – that the brothers must spend a large amount of the money within a month. A break from his usual spy thrillers, this is a gentle and humorous tale from author E. Phillips Oppenheim. E. Phillips Oppenheim (1866-1946) was a hugely prolific and highly popular British author of novels and short stories. Born in Tottenham, London, Oppenheim left school as a teenager and worked for his leather-merchant father for 20 years prior to launching his literary career. Oppenheim published five novels under the pseudonym ‘Anthony Partridge’ before establishing his reputation as a writer under his own name. An internationally successful author, Oppenheim’s stories revolved mainly around glamourous characters, luxurious settings, and themes of espionage, suspense, and crime. He is widely regarded as one of the earliest pioneers of the thriller and spy-fiction genre as it is recognised today. Oppenheim’s incredible literary success meant that his own life soon began to mirror that of his opulent characters. He held lavish, Gatsby-style parties at his French Villa and was rumoured to have had frequent love affairs aboard his luxury yacht. Oppenheim’s success earned him the cover of Time magazine in 1927. Some of his most well-known novels include ‘The Great Impersonation’, ‘The Long Arm of Mannister’ and ‘The Moving Finger’.
