Anyone who has read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings can gather that their author hated tyranny, but few know that the novelist who once described himself as a hobbit Òin all but sizeÓ wasÑeven by hobbit standardsÑa zealous proponent of economic freedom and small government. There is a growing concern among many that the West is sliding into political, economic, and moral bankruptcy. In his beloved novels of Middle-Earth, J.R.R. Tolkien has drawn us a map to freedom. Scholar Joseph Pearce, who himself has written articles and chapters on the political significance of TolkienÕs work, testified in his book Literary Giants, Literary Catholics, ÒIf much has been written on the religious significance of The Lord of the Rings, less has been written on its political significanceÑand the little that has been written is often erroneous in its conclusions and ignorant of TolkienÕs intentionsÉ. Much more work is needed in this area, not least because Tolkien stated, implicitly at least, that the political significance of the work was second only to the religious in its importance.Ó Several books ably explore how TolkienÕs Catholic faith informed his fiction. None until now have centered on how his passion for liberty and limited government also shaped his work, or how this passion grew directly from his theological vision of man and creation. The Hobbit Party fills this void. The few existing pieces that do focus on the subject are mostly written by scholars with little or no formal training in literary analysis, and even less training in political economy. Witt and Richards bring to The Hobbit Party a combined expertise in literary studies, political theory, economics, philosophy, and theology.

Das Leben in der Stadt ist zusammengebrochen. Die staatliche Verwaltung arbeitet nicht mehr, eine geregelte Lebensmittelversorgung findet nicht mehr statt, das Verkehrswesen und sämtliche Kommunikationssysteme funktionieren nicht mehr. Die Menschen sind ständig unterwegs, unablässig mit der Organisation des Lebens beschäftigt und auf der Suche nach Überlebensmöglichkeiten. Es greifen Anarchie und Mangel um sich. Jugendliche und Erwachsene besetzen leerstehende Häuser, plündern Geschäfte, und Horden von streunenden Kindern machen die Straßen unsicher. Das Chaos der Straße beobachtet eine ältere alleinstehende Frau vom Fenster ihrer Wohnung aus. Sie nimmt ein etwa zwölfjähriges Mädchen auf, dem von nun an ihr Denken und Tun gilt. Neben dieser Realität existiert eine traumartige, surreale Wirklichkeit mit gefährlichen und visionären Dimensionen. Auch das Ende des Romans scheint visionär - Das zur jungen Frau herangewachsene Mädchen bricht mit Gerald, dem jugendlichen Anführer einer der Kinderbanden, auf zu einer vielleicht besseren Wirklichkeit.

From the legendary comedic scholars who illuminated the tour de force Twilight so brilliantly in the New York Times bestselling Nightlight comes The Hunger Pains, a hilarious send-up of the immensely popular dystopian young adult novel, The Hunger Games. The classic parody of The Lord of the Rings is back! With a brand-new “boreword” by Henry Beard. The Power almighty rests in this Lone Ring. The Power, alrighty, for doing your Own Thing. If broken or busted, it cannot be remade If found, send to Sorhed (the postage is prepaid). It’s up to Boggie Frito Bugger and his band of misfits—including inept wizard Goodgulf Grayteeth, halfwit Spam Gangree, twins Moxie and Pepsi, and Arrowroot of Arrowshirt—to carry the Great Ring to Fordor and cast it into the Zazu Pits. Can they avoid death by hickey tree and escape the dread ballhog? Can the fellowship overcome the narcs and Nozdruls hounding their every move and save Lower Middle Earth once and for all? Yes, of course—this isn’t Hamlet, you know.

Most introductory texts provide a technology-based survey of methods and techniques that leaves the reader without a clear understanding of the interrelationships between methods and techniques. By providing a strategy-based introduction, the reader is given a clear understanding of how to provide overlapping defenses for critical information. This understanding provides a basis for engineering and risk-management decisions in the defense of information. Information security is a rapidly growing field, with a projected need for thousands of professionals within the next decade in the government sector alone. It is also a field that has changed in the last decade from a largely theory-based discipline to an experience-based discipline. This shift in the field has left several of the classic texts with a strongly dated feel. Provides a broad introduction to the methods and techniques in the field of information security Offers a strategy-based view of these tools and techniques, facilitating selection of overlapping methods for in-depth defense of information Provides very current view of the emerging standards of practice in information security
