The ability to negotiate the best deals is a crucial skill for anyone who wants to advance their career.
THIS book is the outcome of lectures given at Jena on October 23 and 24, 1906, in connection with the Theological Vacation Course. These lectures grappled with certain problems which deal with the sharp oppositions that perplex our life to-day, and therefore seem to call very specially for elucidation. In the course of our inquiry we have sought to show as clearly as possible what these oppositions are, and have done our best to surmount them. The first lecture deals with the grounding of religion in the inner life. Our aim in this lecture is to find some mean between the older thought which favoured the cosmological approach to religion, and the newer which takes the human soul as its starting-point, but is so liable to the defects of vagueness and formlessness. Over against both these methods we proceed to elaborate a system which, while based on the inner life, still preserves a cosmic character. In this way a clear distinction is drawn between a religion of the spiritual life and a religion that is merely humanistic. The subject of the second section is " Religion and History." There is hardly anything so significant for the position of religion to-day as the tendency to refer continually to history. Whatever the advantages of such reference, we must not ignore its dangers. It was incumbent on us to weigh them well, and in particular to ascertain whether it were possible to overcome the evils of a stifling and enervating historicity, whilst still maintaining the significance of history in opposition to a radicalism which is hostile to it. This we could not do without framing certain fundamental convictions as to the meaning of history which shed a new light on the picture of life as a whole, and therefore concern each of us individually.
As the process of internationalization accelerates, comparative law scholars inevitably focus on the adaptation of legal cultures to new realities. It is particularly important, in the global world order as it stands today, to understand (as best we can) the 'inner workings' of two groups of lawyers: those in the United States, and those in the major European countries. In which ways do the two groups understand each other, and where do they go their separate ways? And what are the implications for the legal profession and its beneficiaries of their cultural and ideological differences?At a symposium held in Paris twelve scholars from Europe and the United States met to investigate and clarify these issues under two intimately related rubrics: realities and trends on the one hand, and ethics, rules and professional ideologies on the other. The participants have updated their original papers for this publication. In the course of their discussion they reveal which cultural realities persist and are likely to remain, and which trends are broadening the common ground on which lawyers act in both cultures. The result is the sharpest delineation we have yet of this vital concern of current comparative law.
Sidemen-professional musicians hired to perform with groups of which they are not regular members-are essential to bands and orchestras, but most remain anonymous for their entire lives. A few music aficionados might know their names, and sometimes a sideman becomes a star for compositions or for exceptional performances. Even so, few ever achieve fame or an identity separate from the organizations with whom they perform. "My Best to You ..." captures a glimpse of Kasper "Stranger" Malone, a musician struggling to survive in the early days of recorded music. In his own words, Malone documents, names, places, and personalities of that era. He played in every musical genre, from early recorded country music with Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers to silent movie orchestras, from live radio to jazz recordings with Benny Goodman, Pee Wee Hunt, and Jack Teagarden. He played with symphony orchestras in San Francisco, Denver, Tucson, and Rome, Georgia, finally ending his long career full circle playing folk and bluegrass in North Georgia. With a Founder's Award from the Atlanta Country Music Hall of Fame, a Guinness World Records acknowledgement of his unprecedented seventy-seven year recording history, and a recently released documentary of his life, in his old age he found he had achieved an uncomfortable fame. Presented here is his history and biography, edited by his daughter, Patricia Poos and filled with fascinating details of a long and historic career.
