Leviathan (Wisehouse Classics - The Original Authoritative Edition)

by Thomas Hobbes and Sam Vaseghi

LEVIATHAN or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Common Wealth Ecclesiasticall and Civil-commonly referred to as Leviathan-is a book written by Thomas Hobbes (1588-1679) and published in 1651 (revised Latin edition 1668). Its name derives from the biblical Leviathan. The work concerns the structure of society and legitimate government, and is regarded as one of the earliest and most influential examples of social contract theory.

I loathe you, Donnie Hump!: A Book of Revelations

by Geraldine Ferraro

I am a ghost writer.I died at Massachusetts General on March 26, 2011.Or so everyone thought.In my first life, as the 1984 U.S. presidential election primary season neared its end, and Walter Mondale became the likely Democratic nominee; the idea of picking a woman as his vice-presidential running mate gained considerable momentum. The National Organization for Women and the National Women's Political Caucus pushed the idea, as did several top Democratic figures such as Speaker Tip O'Neill. Women mentioned for the role included the Mayor of San Francisco Dianne Feinstein and me. Mondale selected me to be his Vice-Presidential candidate on July 12, 1984. I said, "I am absolutely thrilled." On November 6, Mondale and I lost the general election in a landslide. Had I known the outcome of th...
