True Civility Book Description:

True Civility explores civility practices in different contexts and diverse environmental terrains. So long as society and environment continue in their roles as fundamental variables in qualifying the act of civility, the ability to adapt our practices to these surroundings we find ourselves in remain paramount irrespective of culture, race, sex, or belief. If the divergent environments we operate in are ignored, practicing civility will become challenging, leading to an ultimate loss of purpose. Unless this is thoroughly understood, the backlash on civility issues will continue because what may be considered as civil behavior in one environment may easily be considered as uncivil in some. The authors of True Civility advocate that the prerequisite to understanding what civility involves is certainly a practical one. One that entails we understudy civility in a natural nonstatic setting, where we experience real-life scenarios in varying context, thus eliminating social constructionism on how the society perceives and practices civility. To remain effective, the authors recommend the practice of civility be observed continually through a multidimensional lens, staying flexible to adjustments and tolerant to differences. The authors finally conclude that civility goes beyond being a dynamic construct that changes constantly to adapt to the society and environment. Civility is undeniably a living practice.

R G Collingwood and the Second World War Book Description:

R.G Collingwood's prolific works have shaped the debate about the nature of civilisation and its status as an ideal governing art, morality and social and political existence. As one of the few philosophers to subject civilisation and barbarism to close analysis, R.G Collingwood was acutely aware of the interrelationship between philosophy and history. In Peter Johnson's highly original work, R.G Collingwood and the Second World War: Facing Barbarism, Johnson combines historical, biographical and philosophical discussion in order to illuminate Collingwood's thinking and create the first in-depth analysis of R.G Collingwood's responses to the Second World War. Peter Johnson examines how R.G Collingwood's responses to the war developed from his early rejection of appeasement as a policy for dealing with Hitler's Germany, through his view of Britain's prosecution of the war once the battle with Nazism had been joined, and finally to his picture of a future liberal society in which civility is its overriding ideal.

You re Too Kind Book Description:

Okay, who was the first flatterer? If you guessed Satan, you'd be close, but according to You're Too Kind, flattery began with chimpanzees, who groom each other all day long. In fact, flattery is an adaptive behavior that has helped us survive since prehistoric times. Our flattery is strategic praise, and to illustrate its myriad forms, Richard Stengel takes us on a witty, idiosyncratic tour, from chimps to the God of the Old Testament to the troubadour poets of the Middle Ages, all the way through Dale Carnegie and Monica Lewinsky's adoring love letters to her "Big Creep." Flattery thrives in hierarchical settings like royal courts or Fortune 500 boardrooms, and it flows both upward and downward. Downward is usually easier, but studies show it works best on those who already have high opinions of themselves. Stengel sees public flattery as an epidemic in our society, and private praise as being all too scarce. Most often, though, flattery these days is just a harmless deception, a victimless crime that often ends up making both the giver and the receiver feel a little better. In short, flattery works.

Rules of Civility Book Description:

As a young man, George Washington admired and copied into a little notebook 110 rules for civil behavior that originated from a Jesuit textbook. Washington took these rules very much to heart, and that handwritten list remained with him throughout his life, serving as inspiring guidance from his military days at Valley Forge and Yorktown to his two terms as president. Richard Brookhiser makes clear the pertinence of these rules for modern readers and proposes that now more than ever we will be wise to follow the modest example of such a great man. Witty and insightful, Brookhiser's commentary offers real-world instruction in the lost art of self-discipline, and his new preface provides a compelling and timely context in which to employ these guidelines today.

The Director and The Manager Book Description:

Machiavelli Had it Easy is an engaging text for the emerging discipline of governance. Gaps arise when directors and managers come together from diverse vocational and cultural languages and interests. Compressed information streams in the digital age, yet few reconcile silos of business, legal expertise and regulatory public-interests for informed decisions. This text presents research and a market-tested decision-framework for comparative law, market practice, and human nature in the vital strategic-oversight role of governance. Informed by cognitive science, business practice and legal duties, one conclusion is that bias and self-interests are instinctive but reconciling best-interests is not. Too often lessons learned from centuries of law are overlooked. The chapters are a dozen inquiries into recurring problems in the boardroom. Part one is an entry-level technical reference of law and governance principles. Unique appendices of keywords and case notes will aid those new to markets governed by the western rule-of-law and those tripping on gaps in comparative jargon. Part two is a series of practical hot-topics in the context of law and governance; part three looks to next steps in accountability and liability. The text will help accountants, engineers, lawyers, and business operations and market-policy experts from around the world work together, and; professors, professionals and students anticipate change. After drilling through accountability and liability for hybrid organizations, typical crises are revealed to be from a lack of aligning interests and related information churn. Conclusions of the how and why of governance systems link the human condition and the rule-of-law in the digital age.
