The British empire was a huge enterprise. To foreigners it more or less defined Britain in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Its repercussions in the wider world are still with us today. It also had a great impact on Britain herself: for example, on her economy, security, population, and eating habits. One might expect this to have been reflected in her society and culture. Indeed, this has now become the conventional wisdom: that Britain was steeped in imperialism domestically, which affected (or infected) almost everything Britons thought, felt, and did. This is the first book to examine this assumption critically against the broader background of contemporary British society. Bernard Porter, a leading imperial historian, argues that the empire had a far lower profile in Britain than it did abroad. Many Britons could hardly have been aware of it for most of the nineteenth century and only a small number was in any way committed to it. Between these extremes opinions differed widely over what was even meant by the empire. This depended largely on class, and even when people were aware of the empire, it had no appreciable impact on their thinking about anything else. Indeed, the influence far more often went the other way, with perceptions of the empire being affected (or distorted) by more powerful domestic discourses. Although Britain was an imperial nation in this period, she was never a genuine imperial society. As well as showing how this was possible, Porter also discusses the implications of this attitude for Britain and her empire, and for the relationship between culture and imperialism more generally, bringing his study up to date by including the case of the present-day USA.

As a student in school, I have always liked writing essays and stories. However, it was not until 1996 that the urge to write poetry came over me, an urge that I could not resist. It was then I penned my first piece called “Life”. Deep Thoughts became my brain child in 2001 when I wrote “Double Towers” a very prominent work, about the destruction of the World Trade Center. This work was so accepted, giving birth to this brain Child has finally become a reality. Deep Thoughts depicts a lot of my life experiences and the every day happenings. Some of its pieces also portrays a synopsis of public and private figures alike. Compiling this anthology did not take the form of sitting at a computer for hours and write, instead, most of the poems were writing in the most unusual places. Some of my favorite writing venues were: restaurants, laundry mats, clubs, parks, the bus, the train and strange, but true, the shower. We live poetry in our every day lives, therefore, it’s not just words written on a piece of paper or in a book; it is the reality of existence. DEEP THOUGHTS gives you that reality. Maxine E.

Dzogchen (Great Perfection) goes to the heart of our experience by investigating the relationship between mind and world and uncovering the great secret of mind's luminous nature. Weaving in personal stories and everyday examples, Pema Rigtsal leads the reader to see that all phenomena are the spontaneous display of mind, a magical illusion, and yet there is something shining in the midst of experience that is naturally pure and spacious. Not recognizing this natural great perfection is the root cause of suffering and self-centered clinging. After introducing us to this liberating view, Pema Rigtsal explains how it is stabilized and sustained in effortless meditation: without modifying anything, whatever thoughts of happiness or sorrow arise simply dissolve by themselves into the spaciousness of pure presence. The book is divided into chapters on the view, meditation as the path, conduct, the attainment, and the four bardos. Each chapter consists of mini-sections that can be read as stand-alone Dharma talks. Pema Rigtsal has studied and lived with several authentic Dzogchen masters and has surprising stories to tell about their unconventional methods to introduce students to the subtle view of Dzogchen.

In Lehr-Lernprozessen kommt dem Faktor Zeit eine überragende Bedeutung zu, da Lehren und Lernen als zeitliche Prozesse Synchronisation erfordern. In diesem Buch wird erstmals ein empirisch fundiertes Modell von Zeitstrukturen entwickelt. Ausgehend von der Operativen Pädagogik werden Formen der Synchronisation des Lehrens und Lernens identifiziert und analysiert. In diesem Zusammenhang stellt die Studie auch die Rückseite der Synchronisation, Asynchronisation, als zentrales Moment heraus. Indem aufgezeigt wird, dass in Lehr-Lernprozessen asynchrone Momente unverzichtbar sind, erscheint die Differenz von 'subjektiver' und 'objektiver' Zeit nicht länger als pädagogisches Problem. Vielmehr stellt sich eine Vielfalt divergierender Zeitstrukturen als strukturelle Voraussetzung für die Realisierung von Lehr-Lernprozessen dar. Diese sind durch eine relative zeitliche Koordination gekennzeichnet: durch das dynamische und flexible Oszillieren zwischen Synchronisation und Asynchronisation.
