From the Berlin Airlift to the Iraq War, the UN Security Council has stood at the heart of global politics. Part public theater, part smoke-filled backroom, the Council has enjoyed notable successes and suffered ignominious failures, but it has always provided a space for the five great powers to sit down together. Five to Rule Them All tells the inside story of this remarkable diplomatic creation. Drawing on extensive research, including dozens of interviews with serving and former ambassadors on the Council, the book chronicles political battles and personality clashes as it opens the closed doors of its meeting room. What emerges here is a revealing portrait of the most powerful diplomatic body in the world. When the five permanent members are united, David Bosco points out, the Council can wage war, impose blockades, redraw borders, unseat governments, and levy sanctions. There are almost no limits to its authority. Yet the Council exists in a world of realpolitik. Its members are, above all, powerful states with their own diverging interests. Time and again, the Council's performance has dashed the hope that its members would somehow work together to establish a more peaceful world. But if these lofty hopes have been unfulfilled, the Council has still served an invaluable purpose: to prevent conflict between the Great Powers. In this role, the Council has been an unheralded success. As Bosco reminds us, massacres in the Balkans and chaos in Iraq are human tragedies, but conflicts between the world's great powers in the nuclear age would be catastrophic. In this lively, fast-moving, and often humorous narrative, Bosco illuminates the role of the Security Council in the postwar world, making a compelling case for the enduring importance of the five who rule them all.

"I wish I could state boldly that this book is written by the 'World's Foremost Authority on Physical Culture', but I am afraid to make such a categorical statement. After all, I have only been a student of body building and weight lifting for forty years. A lifetime is not long enough to learn all there is to know about this vital subject. So I shall merely say that the contents of this book represent what one man has learned through close association with the leading men of muscle, through practical, realistic shoulder-to-shoulder workouts in the world's leading training centres. The impractical methods have been weeded out, and this brief work gives you the gist of accepted practice of the present-day stars. I believe firmly that anyone who puts this information to practical use will be able to develop strong, shapely and perfectly muscled arms and shoulders. It may be of some small comfort to other muscleheads to know that the author is still as much in love with barbells and dumb-bells as he was forty years ago, and still uses them regularly and happily." - HARRY B.

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 18 edition. Excerpt: ...wishing to revive the famous quarrel which Pius IX. ended by authority with his Encyclical, Inter Multiplices, dated March 21st, 1853, one cannot forbear acknowledging that very little was done in this order for the opinions dear to Don Bosco; and in that little, perseverance had failed. True, reform was as difficult as desirable. Freedom of instruction does not exist in our country of so-O1illed liberty; everywhere except in England and rea-'gium the State, like a jealous dragon, watches e roacjs of study. In France, we are generally easy, content with personal liberty, forgetting it is but a lure without freedom of system and programme. We have the right to instruct, under the strict superintendence, ideas, and scepticism of the State; and we think ourselves free! Experience, even restricted, and the happy results of Salesian colleges, prove the good of Don Bosco's system. It is not irrational that Leo XIII., in his Encyclical, Immortale Dei, put the faithful on their guard against naturalism and rationalism, which he declared incompatible with integrity of faith. What is substantially good in pagan classics serves as an introduction to Christian classics; the natural beauty of one adds additional lustre to the other; thus intimate adhesion between natural and supernatural law is maintained in young minds, distinct, yet united. On this amalgamation not alone education, but Christianity rests. The explanation of the study of philosophy and theology in Salesian Institutions is better given in an extract from the general rule than in any comment. "Section XII. Studies: I. Priests and all members of the Society who wish to be enrolled in clerical train bands, will apply themselves for two years to the study of philosophy, and for four...

Much has been written about Graham Greene's relationship to his Catholic faith and its privileged place within his texts. His early books are usually described as "Catholic Novels" - understood as a genre that not only uses Catholic belief to frame the issues of modernity, but also offers Catholicism's vision and doctrine as a remedy to the present crisis in Western civilization. Greene's later work, by contrast, is generally regarded as falling into political and detective genres. In this book, Mark Bosco argues that this is a false dichotomy created by a narrowly prescriptive understanding of the Catholic genre and obscures the impact of Greene's developing religious imagination on his literary art.
