Christopher R. Browning’s shocking account of how a unit of average middle-aged Germans became the cold-blooded murderers of tens of thousands of Jews—now with a new afterword and additional photographs. Ordinary Men is the true story of Reserve Police Battalion 101 of the German Order Police, which was responsible for mass shootings as well as round-ups of Jewish people for deportation to Nazi death camps in Poland in 1942. Browning argues that most of the men of RPB 101 were not fanatical Nazis but, rather, ordinary middle-aged, working-class men who committed these atrocities out of a mixture of motives, including the group dynamics of conformity, deference to authority, role adaptation, and the altering of moral norms to justify their actions. Very quickly three groups emerged within the battalion: a core of eager killers, a plurality who carried out their duties reliably but without initiative, and a small minority who evaded participation in the acts of killing without diminishing the murderous efficiency of the battalion whatsoever. While this book discusses a specific Reserve Unit during WWII, the general argument Browning makes is that most people succumb to the pressures of a group setting and commit actions they would never do of their own volition. Ordinary Men is a powerful, chilling, and important work with themes and arguments that continue to resonate today. “A remarkable—and singularly chilling—glimpse of human behavior...This meticulously researched book...represents a major contribution to the literature of the Holocaust."—Newsweek

George Orwell’s 1984 takes on new life with extraordinary relevance and renewed popularity. “Orwell saw, to his credit, that the act of falsifying reality is only secondarily a way of changing perceptions. It is, above all, a way of asserting power.”—The New Yorker In 1984, London is a grim city in the totalitarian state of Oceania where Big Brother is always watching you and the Thought Police can practically read your mind. Winston Smith is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be. Lionel Trilling said of Orwell’s masterpiece, “1984 is a profound, terrifying, and wholly fascinating book. It is a fantasy of the political future, and like any such fantasy, serves its author as a magnifying device for an examination of the present.” Though the year 1984 now exists in the past, Orwell’s novel remains an urgent call for the individual willing to speak truth to power.

"I am, indeed, a king, because I know how to rule myself." -Pietro Aretino Do you ever feel like you are capable of so much more in life, career, and relationships, but have done nothing or very little about it? Do you detest mediocrity and fear that at the end of your life, you will have not done everything in life that you were capable of? Do you feel that a better life awaits you, if only you had a ROADMAP? Don't believe anybody who tells you there is a way to "hack" life or that you can achieve success in life in "four hours a week." There are NO shortcuts in life, but THE KING'S MINDSET is a ROADMAP to success for every ambitious and hungry badass. THE KING'S MINDSET will teach you how to reprogram your mindsets for ultimate success, mindsets which very few men possess these days. Very few men possess these mindsets because most men around them are struggling with mediocrity as well. Most men have grown up without proper mentorship and guidance. The problem with modern society is that it is virtually impossible for most men to find a positive, masculine role model or mentor. Exposure to amazing and inspiring people is often the tipping point for somebody mired in mediocrity towards greater success. ENTER THE KING'S MINDSET: TWENTY MINDSETS TO TRANSFORM ORDINARY MEN INTO KINGS... THE KING'S MINDSET is a treasure trove of PROVEN mindsets derived from great historical KINGS and WORLD LEADERS who have reached the pinnacle of power, respect, and success at many different points in history. In the book, you will find quotes and stories straight from the mouths (or pens) of these great world leaders illustrating the essential mindsets they utilized in building their "beautiful kingdoms." As you will see, the road to becoming a "king" starts with ruling YOURSELF. Some of the historical kings whose mindsets and best thinkings are represented in THE KING'S MINDSET are: Frederick the Great, Chandragupta Maurya, Alexander the Great, Marcus Aurelius, and many others. What better mentors could a man ask for and have? By internalizing THE KING'S MINDSET, a collection of TWENTY ESSENTIAL MINDSETS for men who wish to be much more than mediocre, you will learn how to avoid procrastination and take massive action, reduce fear and self-doubt, and build the self-confidence of a king. By doing so, you will have unlimited potential to make more money, have more friends and better relationships with women, gain the respect of others, and live a life that you have envisioned and designed for yourself. In this book, you will learn the twenty kingly mindsets and how to internalize them. A special bonus is also included wherein you will learn how to develop a compelling mission and vision for your life, and then how to IGNITE that mission and vision into a BURNING AMBITION that will fuel your life and guide your journey. By the end of THE KING'S MINDSET, you will be fully equipped to take what the author calls "The King's Journey," the journey towards making you and your life a "beautiful kingdom." Most importantly, you will live your life as a modern day "king," the man you were born to be, a man who lives life ON HIS OWN TERMS. What are you waiting for? A king is a MAN OF ACTION and never delays in seizing opportunities that come his way. Answer the call of the "The King's Journey" today!

This groundbreaking international bestseller lays to rest many myths about the Holocaust: that Germans were ignorant of the mass destruction of Jews, that the killers were all SS men, and that those who slaughtered Jews did so reluctantly. Hitler's Willing Executioners provides conclusive evidence that the extermination of European Jewry engaged the energies and enthusiasm of tens of thousands of ordinary Germans. Goldhagen reconstructs the climate of "eliminationist anti-Semitism" that made Hitler's pursuit of his genocidal goals possible and the radical persecution of the Jews during the 1930s popular. Drawing on a wealth of unused archival materials, principally the testimony of the killers themselves, Goldhagen takes us into the killing fields where Germans voluntarily hunted Jews like animals, tortured them wantonly, and then posed cheerfully for snapshots with their victims. From mobile killing units, to the camps, to the death marches, Goldhagen shows how ordinary Germans, nurtured in a society where Jews were seen as unalterable evil and dangerous, willingly followed their beliefs to their logical conclusion. "Hitler's Willing Executioner's is an original, indeed brilliant contribution to the...literature on the Holocaust."--New York Review of Books "The most important book ever published about the Holocaust...Eloquently written, meticulously documented, impassioned...A model of moral and scholarly integrity."--Philadelphia Inquirer From the Trade Paperback edition.

Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl's memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl's theory-known as logotherapy, from the Greek word logos ("meaning")-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful. At the time of Frankl's death in 1997, Man's Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a "book that made a difference in your life" found Man's Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.

Mises turned his attention to one of the great puzzles of all time: discovering why the intellectuals hate capitalism. Theresult is this socio-psycho-cultural analysis informed by economic theory. Mises explores answers from a wide variety of angles, and discusses the nature of academic institutions, popular culture, and how vices like jealousy and envy affect theory. All play a role in preventing people from seeing the self-evident benefits of economic freedom relative to controls. His comments on the resentment of the intellectuals cut very deeply. Mises shrewdly teases the anti-capitalist bias out of contemporary fiction and popular culture generally. In the course of his narrative, he explains aspects of the market that have generally eluded even its defenders.
