#PDFDownload For the Glory: Eric Liddell's Journey from Olympic Champion to Modern Martyr by Duncan Hamilton

The untold and inspiring story of Eric Liddell, hero of Chariots of Fire , from his Olympic medal to his missionary work in China to his last, brave years in a Japanese work camp during WWII
Many people will remember Eric Liddell as the Olympic gold medalist from the Academy Award winning film Chariots of Fire . Famously, Liddell would not run on Sunday because of his strict observance of the Christian sabbath, and so he did not compete in his signature event, the 100 meters, at the 1924 Paris Olympics. He was the greatest sprinter in the world at the time, and his choice not to run was ridiculed by the British Olympic committee, his fellow athletes, and most of the world press. Yet Liddell triumphed in a new event, winning the 400 meters in Paris.

Bitcoin Tumble: Cryptocurrency Craze Crashing or Temporary Dip?

The once-booming cryptocurrency market is experiencing a turbulent crash, with Bitcoin, the flagship digital currency, plummeting in value. This sudden dip has sent shockwaves through the crypto community, sparking speculations about the future of Bitcoin and the viability of the entire crypto market. While some fear a complete bust, others believe this is merely a temporary correction within a larger growth trajectory.

Several factors have contributed to this recent downturn. Rising inflation and tightening monetary policies by central banks have dampened investor appetite for riskier assets, including cryptocurrencies. Concerns about regulatory crackdowns on crypto in China and other countries have also added to the market's anxiety. Additionally, internal factors within the crypto ecosystem, such as the collapse of certain stablecoins and lending platforms, have further eroded investor confidence.

Despite the bearish sentiment, several arguments offer hope for a potential rebound. Bitcoin's intrinsic value as a decentralized, inflation-resistant store of value remains appealing to a segment of investors. Furthermore, institutional adoption of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies is gradually increasing, suggesting long-term potential for market growth. Advancements in blockchain technology and the emergence of innovative crypto applications could also contribute to future bull runs.

The long-term trajectory of the cryptocurrency market remains uncertain. While the current dip is undoubtedly a cause for concern, it is crucial to remember that volatility is inherent in this nascent asset class. The future of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies will depend on several factors, including regulatory developments, technological advancements, and overall investor sentiment. #Bitcoin

#PDF_Download Getting China Wrong by Aaron L. Friedberg

The West's strategy of engagement with China has failed. More than three decades of trade and investment with the advanced democracies have left that country far richer and stronger than it would otherwise have been. But growth and development have not caused China's rulers to relax their grip on political power, abandon their mercantilist economic policies, or accept the rules and norms of the existing international system. To the China today is more repressive at home, more aggressive abroad, and more obviously intent on establishing itself as the world’s preponderant power than at any time since the death of Chairman Mao. What went wrong? Put simply, the democracies underestimated the resilience, resourcefulness, and ruthlessness of the Chinese Communist Party. For far too long, the United States and its allies failed to take seriously the Party's unwavering determination to crush opposition, build national power, and fulfil

#PDF_Download The World According to China by Elizabeth C. Economy

An economic and military superpower with 20 percent of the world's population, China has the wherewithal to transform the international system. Xi Jinping's bold calls for China to lead in the reform of the global governance system, suggest that he has just such an ambition. And his iron grip on power in the wake of the 2022 Party Congress suggests that he now has the mandate. But how does he plan to realize it? And what does it mean for the rest of the world? In this compelling book, Elizabeth Economy reveals China's ambitious new strategy to reclaim the country's past glory and reshape the geostrategic landscape in dramatic new ways. Xi's vision is one of Chinese centrality on the global stage, in which the mainland has realized its sovereignty claims over Hong Kong, Taiwan and the South China sea, deepened its global political, economic, and security reach through its grand scale Belt and Road Initiative, and u

Growing up in a changing America, surrounded by Chinese myth and memory, this is her story of two cultures and one trenchant, lyrical journey into womanhood.

#PDF_Download The Red Prince: The Life of John of Gaunt, the Duke of Lancaster by Helen Carr

Gaunt was son of Edward III, brother to the Black Prince, father to Henry IV and the sire of all those Tudors. He’s had a pretty bad press: supposed usurper of Richard II’s crown and the focus of hatred in the Peasants’ Revolt (they torched his home, the Savoy Palace). Helen Carr will paint a complex portrait of a man who held the levers of power on the English and European stage, passionately upheld chivalric values, pressed for the Bible to be translated into English, patronised the arts … and, if you follow Shakespeare, gave the most beautiful oration on England (‘this sceptred isle… this blessed plot’). An engrossing drama of political machinations, violence, romance and tragedy played out at the cusp of a new era.

#PDF_Download Eat the Buddha: Life and Death in a Tibetan Town by Barbara Demick

Just as she did with North Korea, award-winning journalist Barbara Demick explores one of the most hidden corners of the world. She tells the story of a Tibetan town perched eleven thousand feet above sea level that is one of the most difficult places in all of China for foreigners to visit. Ngaba was one of the first places where the Tibetans and the Chinese Communists encountered one another. In the 1930s, Mao Zedong’s Red Army fled into the Tibetan plateau to escape their adversaries in the Chinese Civil War. By the time the soldiers reached Ngaba, they were so hungry that they looted monasteries and ate religious statues made of flour and butter—to Tibetans, it was as if they were eating the Buddha. Their experiences would make Ngaba one of the engines of Tibetan resistance for decades to come, culminating in shocking acts of self-immolation.
