This exceeding rare book is by one of the great men of the 20th century. Written soon after his immigration to the United States, he signed the book "Francis Stuart Campbell" because he was a refugee from Austria and didn't want to endanger them. The contents: a relentless attack on the idea of mass government based on the egalitarian ethic, and its tendency toward the total state of Stalin and Hitler. And yet there is more here, more than can possibly be recounted in a paragraph. The author was a remarkable 19th-century-style liberal intellectual, startling in his erudition and wisdom. A bit disorganized, perhaps, and not as friendly to the market as it might be but a book overflowing with insight into the ancient, medieval, and modern worlds. To read him is to experience something of an intellectual liberation from every sort of conventional wisdom. This is a dazzling work from a man who seemed to be an impossibility in the modern age.

"Instincts of the Herd in Peace and War" is the title of an influential book by English surgeon Wilfred Trotter. Based on the ideas of Gustave Le Bon, it was very influential in the development of group dynamics and crowd psychology. It was also cited by Q. D. Leavis in her book "Fiction And The Reading Public." Wilfred Trotter was an English surgeon, a pioneer in neurosurgery. He was also known for his studies on social psychology, most notably for his concept of the herd instinct, which he first outlined in two published papers in 1908, and later in his famous popular work Instincts of the Herd in Peace and War, an early classic of crowd psychology. Trotter argued that gregariousness was an instinct, and studied beehives, flocks of sheep and wolf packs.

Who or What is Behind the Cattle Mutilations? The cattle mutilation phenomenon is an ongoing mystery that has endured for almost 50 years. What have we learned, if anything, from the countless reports filed? Who or what is behind the death and disfigurement of livestock reported as mutilated around the globe? Are these deaths simply attributable to natural predators and scavengers? Or is the military/government somehow involved; perhaps monitoring “mad cow disease”? Are the deaths the action of ritual “cultists” as police say the evidence would suggest? Is it possible that alien predators are involved, as some researchers and the media have suggested? Are black helicopters or UFOs related to the cattle mutilation phenomenon as many witnesses have claimed? Regardless of who or what is responsible, what are the motivations behind perpetrating what may be the greatest unsolved serial crime spree of all time? Stalking the Herd addresses these questions in depth and also offers an objective look at the history of our venerated relationship with cattle, the first domesticated livestock. Is there a connection between these ritualistic cattle deaths and humankind’s ancient practice of animal sacrifice? Why are there no Brahman cattle mutilations in India where cattle are revered to this day? Are aliens gathering genetic material for unknown purposes? What about the thousands of pounds of scientific forensic evidence? Are some hidden sections of the military conducting secret projects that—for some reason known only to them—involve the mutilation of hundreds of cattle in an area that includes Colorado Springs, the NORAD command base inside Cheyenne Mountain and the strange little town called Dulce on a small Apache Reservation?

Stepping Out of the Herd is the author’s first-hand account about policing in the South American country during the 1980s until the 2000s. Seelall Persaud details his life and times growing up in a rural farming community in the former British colony and also plunges the reader into a deep well of information and analysis about the country’s historical, cultural, and political landscape. The book serves as a primer for readers to gain insight into the complexities of the country, its people, and its system of policing. From training in the jungles and eating snake, working his way up from the frontlines of the Guyana Police Force through professional development and operational exposure locally and in international settings such as with the FBI National Academy and the Scottish Police College, the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and rising to the highest echelon in the police profession, the author’s insider knowledge is evident. Stepping Out of the Herd is an exposition that reveals a unique perspective on the continuum of law enforcement in Guyana. The author used his research and experiences to define whose interests the police force was designed to serve, whose it actually served at varying periods of its history and what impact it had on the society. In so doing, he explained the factors that created the acute ethnic imbalance in the organization and those that sustained it on to present. In the final chapter, he offers meaningful recommendations for change.

Linda Kohanov is beloved for her groundbreaking articulation of “the way of the horse,” an experiential wisdom known to riders for centuries but little studied or adapted to off-horse use. Now Kohanov takes those horse-inspired insights on the nonverbal elements of exceptional communication and leadership into the realms of our workplaces and relationships. Here we explore the benefits of “nonpredatory power” in developing assertiveness, fostering creativity, dealing with conflict, and heightening mind-body awareness. In “A Brief History of Power,” the first part of this far-reaching book, Kohanov profiles cultural innovators who employed extraordinary nonverbal leadership skills to change history, usually on horseback: Winston Churchill, George Washington, Alexander the Great, and Siddhartha Gautama (the Buddha), among others. She also draws on the behavior of mature horse herds, as well as the herding cultures of Africa and Mongolia, to debunk theories of dominance hierarchies, challenge ingrained notions of “survival of the fittest,” and demonstrate the power of a consensual leadership in which governing roles are fluid. Kohanov then adapts these lessons into twelve powerful guiding principles we can all incorporate into our work and personal lives. Eloquent and provocative, this is horse sense for everyone who seeks to thrive in the herds we all run in — our communities, careers, families, and friendships.

Are you interested in the stock market? Do you plan to start investing in it? Or have you burned your fingers in the real estate through rash decisions or wrong advice? Have you been swayed by hype and ads that lure you with the promise of quick riches? Well, then, Madness of the Masses is a book you must read. History has proved time and again how get-rich- quick offers have fallen flat, leaving investors in a state of financial ruin. However, we never seem to learn from history. When the next exciting scheme to get rich comes along, we fall for it all over again, leaving us in financial ruin, while the perpetrators of the scams, more often than not, laugh their way to the banks. These boom and bust cycles continue century after century. In this book, author Sameer Rastogi makes a compelling case for how human greed and envy propel us towards financial ruin. He says, “I have witnessed investor emotions and biases during Booms and Depressions. With experience, I realized that most of the investor questions and investor biases didn’t have practical answers in pure investment research. It required out-of- the-box thinking. It required analysis of investor behaviour at large. It required a study of emotional forces like greed and fear… For investment success, the EQ of each investor proved to be worth its weight in gold. Also, high investment IQ alone didn’t necessary translate into higher investment profits.” Unlike most dry finance books, Madness of the Masses is peppered with interesting anecdotes from history detailing scams through the ages, making it a thought-provoking, fascinating read. A definite must-read for investors and potential investors as there is a lesson for each of us. The author says, “The bubbles and scams are not new. They have been in existence since the time humans have been greedy, jealous and fearful. The madness of the masses is here to stay. It is up to individuals to learn from the past and stand apart from the crowd.” Section 1 Historical evidences of our vulnerability to Investment Bubbles and Scams 1.

The Trampling Herd is a record of the US cattle industry. From Cortez and the first cattle, on through the days of the Mexican vaquero to the modern cowbody and dude wrangler, Paul Wellman traced the history and personalities of the Western cattle country. He showed the changing West, dating from the barbed wire fences and the sheepmen, the new laws regarding water rights and he brings his tale down to the last ignominy, the dude ranches. Cattle crossed the Rio Grande into what is now the United States as early as 1580, forty years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. In this colorful and comprehensive history of the cattle industry in the American West, we reach back to the early sixteenth century, when the first cattle were brought from Spain to Mexico. We then learn about the great cattle drives that began after the Civil War when Texans desperately needed to expand their markets, and about the dramatic changes in the cattle industry that followed. Colorful true characters like the unforgettable Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Wild Bill Hickok, and Billy the Kid also all make prominent appearances in this fascinating history.

In the 1990s a small midwestern American town approved the construction of a massive pork complex, where almost 7 million hogs are birthed, raised, and killed every year. In Porkopolis Alex Blanchette explores how this rural community has been reorganized around the life and death cycles of corporate pigs. Drawing on over two years of ethnographic fieldwork, Blanchette immerses readers into the workplaces that underlie modern meat, from slaughterhouses and corporate offices to artificial insemination barns and bone-rendering facilities. He outlines the deep human-hog relationships and intimacies that emerge through intensified industrialization, showing how even the most mundane human action, such as a wayward touch, could have serious physical consequences for animals. Corporations' pursuit of a perfectly uniform, standardized pig—one that can yield materials for over 1000 products—creates social and environmental instabilities that transform human lives and livelihoods. Throughout Porkopolis, which includes dozens of images by award-winning photographer Sean Sprague, Blanchette uses factory farming to rethink the fraught state of industrial capitalism in the United States today.
