You just recently found out you have to give a speech. Then this short, concise guide is perfect for you.
As a result your legs have turned to rubber, your mouth has been drier than the Sahara for better than a week now, and to put it delicately you wonder if your bathroom routine will ever go back to normal.

After 70 years, have democracy, prosperity, and unity finally reached Italy? Italians are still wondering since the European Union’s (EU’s) promises after World War II remain largely unfulfilled. This book analyzes parallels and continuities of Italian politics of disillusionment from the post-­World War I period to today’s European crisis, highlighting Italy’s widespread discontent with the EU and its institutions.

From the “mutilated victory” of the Treaty of Versailles to a destructive fascist regime to the promises of future prosperity and progress in the EU, today Italy is still waiting for its early aspirations to materialize. While other EU members and cofounders (notably France and Germany) arrange the EU to their advantage frequently overlooking Italy’s interests and needs Italy’s increasing disappointment with the EU has reached an all-­time high.

This book traces these developments through historical analysis of key turning points—the interwar period, fascism, and . . .

This groundbreaking collection encompasses both sweet and savory favorites: yeast breads and quick breads, layer cakes and loaf cakes, doughnuts and fruit desserts, pies and simple pastries. Taking as his starting point 1796, the year the first American cookbook was published, Greg Patent, an accomplished baker, has mined sources from across the country for exemplary baking recipes by and for home cooks. Perusing old cookbooks, journals, and handwritten diaries from libraries and private archives, he has skillfully recreated treasured recipes or used them as inspiration for his own thoroughly up-­to-­date creations.

Included are historical finds like the original Parker House Rolls; Lindy’s Cheesecake, from the world-­famous New York restaurant; and a sensationally easy butterscotch cake that won a national baking contest in 1954. Here as well are hundreds of contemporary standouts, such as Malted Milk Chocolate Layer Cake, Blueberry–Lemon Curd Streusel Muffins, Peaches and Cream . . .

Informed by W G Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn, Wrestling with Clouds is part hybrid novel, part memoir, part fiction, part fact, part travelogue, historiography and poetic essay that is full of quirky Australiana which often involves the experiences of one Marie Sullivan, her life in a small New South Wales village and the memories it triggers. There, in her “Dreamings”, she relives her memories of childhood and beyond – some true, some fanciful - in the Western Division of New South Wales, a beautiful, vast and sparsely populated region prone to droughts, flooding rains, dust storms, deadly snakes, men and women maddened by loneliness and poverty, obligatory boarding school educations for children and all of the other challenges posed by life in remote outback Australia in the 1950s. Wrestling with Clouds is a challenging nocturne (suggests a tranquil dreamy mood) and as William Wordsworth famously wrote of poetry – takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquillity. . . .

"The View from Chocó: The Afro-­Colombian past, their lives in the present, and their hopes for the future" is an introduction to the lives of Blacks in Colombia. Afro-­Colombians live in a resource-­rich yet remote region of Colombia. They only recently won recognition as one of that nation's distinct ethnic groups. But Colombia's on-­going civil war has led many Afro-­Colombians to reach even farther than their nation's borders for recognition: many have made their way to the United States as refugees and as political activists working for peace in their homeland. "The View from Chocó" introduces Americans to the lives and struggles of a too-­long neglected community of Colombian Blacks.

Tom Wheeler, FCC chairman, writes in his introduction:

Throughout my professional life I have been involved with the introduction of new technologies. And though my day job was to chase the future, history has been an abiding hobby. One of the ways I have tried to understand what lies beyond the next hill in the landscape of the communications revolution is to study the advent of similar periods in the past.

Over the last several years I have been investigating the network revolutions of history. I called the project “From Gutenberg to Google: The History of Our Future.­” The goal was to assemble the work into a book. When President Obama nominated me to be Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) the project was put on hold. Nevertheless, this review has taught me a lot about the present realities of our changing network environment.
