Description :


Do you want to age independently in your own home and neighborhood? Staying home, aging in place, is most people's preference, but most American housing and communities are not adapted to the needs of older people. And with the fastest population growth among people over 65, finding solutions for successful aging is important not only for individual families, but for our whole society. In Independent for Life, former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros and a team of experts on aging, architecture, construction, health, finance, and politics assess the current state of housing and present new possibilities that realistically address the interrelated issues of housing, communities, services, and financial concerns. Independent for Life covers a wide range of smart solutions, including remodeling current housing and building new homes for accessibility and safety, retrofitting existing neighborhoods to connect needed services and amenities, and planning new communities that work well for people of all ages. Case studies show how the proposals can be implemented. The authors offer action plans for working with policy makers at local, state, and national levels to address the larger issues of aging in place, including family financial security, real estate markets, and the limitations of public support. Lists of essential resources, including a detailed "to do" list of aging in place priorities and an individual home assessment, complete the volume.

Description :


Mossner's Life of David Hume remains the standard biography of this great thinker and writer. First published in 1954, and updated in 1980, it is now reissued in paperback, in response to increased interest in Hume. E. C. Mossner was Emeritus Professor of English at the University of Texas at Austin. 'Mossner's work is a quite remarkable scholarly achievement; it will be an indispensable tool for Humescholars and a treasure-trove of information for all students of the intellectual and literary history of the eighteenth century' Richard H. Popkin in the Philological Quarterly 'This magnificentand exemplary work...has more than a biographical value. It is a study of intellectual reaction in the eighteenth century: a book for many readers, and not only for those of a philosophical turn.' C. E. Vulliamy in The Observer 'This is the work of a man thoroughly in love with his subject...this biography is the product of long and happy research. The length and the happiness both contribute to its merits.' The Times LiterarySupplement

Description :


Time and again the crowd roared its vehement applause when the magnificent figure of Edward Marshall Hall was seen leaving the Old Bailey after one of his great triumphs as “counsel for the defence.” This lawyer, who appeared in almost every famous murder trial in England during the last forty years, was the very man to catch the public eye. Six feet three inches in height, “the Apollo of the Bar,” passionately eloquent, alert and daring, he was one of the most dynamic and irresistible of advocates who ever pleaded before a jury. This “Memoir” is not only an unusually full picture of the life of a great lawyer; it is also a record of many famous criminal cases. Marshall Hall’s genius for cross examination, his quickness in seizing on a flaw in the prosecutor’s case, his histrionic power, his compassion, and the talent he had for suddenly producing, as if by a conjuror’s trick, a new bit of evidence for which his opponents were totally unprepared—all these qualities come out in clear relief in the sensational trial scenes reproduced here. There is a place for this book in law literature and as the biography of an intensely vivid personality. Moreover, it contains a collection of true stories of crime which would be difficult to match in fiction.

Description :


A TRUTHFUL APPROACH TO KNOWLEDGE is not only volume two of John O'Loughlin's 'Collected Essays' but is effectively the reverse of the first volume, 'A Knowledgeable Approach to Truth', insofar as it's less hampered or besotted by physical knowledge and more open to truth as a kind of metaphysical knowledge which, dependent upon certain feelings, is distinct from knowledge per se, being more purely of the mind. It is still, of course, a volume of essays and therefore short of the sort of metaphysical perfection or purism that only comes with aphorisms. But, even so, it signifies an advance on its precursor and should be read with a view to keeping higher possibilities, including the author's aphoristic writings, in mind, since it intimates of them in no uncertain terms!

Description :


The first full and intimate biography of writer and bon viveur Sybille Bedford 'A fantastic read' India Knight, Sunday Times 'A wonderful biography' Sara Wheeler, Spectator Born in Germany to aristocratic parents, Sybille Bedford's (1911-2006) life contained all the grand feeling and seismic event of the twentieth century: war and peace, love and trauma, friendship and death, as well as the need to write and rescue something from this wreckage. Openly gay, Bedford once said 'I wish I'd written more books and spent less time being in love. It's very difficult doing both at the same time.' In her forties she published her breakthrough novel, A Legacy, continuing to publish until her early nineties, writing some of the outstanding and most original novels, memoirs and travel books of the century. Bedford's father died when she was just fourteen and her mother, a great socialite and litterateur, fell victim to a debilitating morphine addiction. Striking out on her own, Bedford fell under the spell of Aldous Huxley, who was to become her friend and mentor. Staying with Aldous and his wife Maria in their sunlit villa in the south of France between the wars were some of the happiest and most enlivening years of Bedford's life - even as she failed and failed again at finding her own voice on the page. And yet it was these years that would provide the material for Jigsaw: An Unsentimental Education, widely considered to be her masterwork and which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1989. A bon viveur, lover of French wine and cuisine, and admired by her peers ('One of the most dazzling practitioners of English prose' Bruce Chatwin once commented) she roamed from country to country - Germany, France, England, Italy and the United States - in search of fresh experience, with ear and eye attuned to her surroundings, typewriter at the ready. Full of intense friendships (Martha Gellhorn and Elizabeth Jane Howard among them), a fierce commitment to the craft of writing, as well as an insatiable appetite for love and sex, Sybille Bedford blazed her own path in her life and her art. *A DAILY TELEGRAPH, THE TIMES AND SUNDAY TIMES BOOK OF THE YEAR 2020*
