Summary of Destiny and Power: by Jon Meacham | Includes Analysis Preview: Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush by Jon Meacham is a biography of George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States, who served from 1988 to 1992. The author argues that as president and as a politician, Bush used prudence and compromise to an extent that would seem out of place in today’s era of highly partisan US politics. George H.W. Bush had a varied career before winning the presidency: he was a Navy pilot, oilman, congressman, ambassador to the UN, envoy to China, head of the Republican Party, and later director of the CIA. In the executive branch, he first served as vice president of the United States under Ronald Reagan for eight years before beginning his own presidency… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In this brilliant biography, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Jon Meacham chronicles the life of George Herbert Walker Bush. NAMED ONE OF THE TEN BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE WASHINGTON POST AND ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • Time • NPR • St. Louis Post-Dispatch Drawing on President Bush’s personal diaries, on the diaries of his wife, Barbara, and on extraordinary access to the forty-first president and his family, Meacham paints an intimate and surprising portrait of an intensely private man who led the nation through tumultuous times. From the Oval Office to Camp David, from his study in the private quarters of the White House to Air Force One, from the fall of the Berlin Wall to the first Gulf War to the end of Communism, Destiny and Power charts the thoughts, decisions, and emotions of a modern president who may have been the last of his kind. This is the human story of a man who was, like the nation he led, at once noble and flawed. His was one of the great American lives. Born into a loving, privileged, and competitive family, Bush joined the navy on his eighteenth birthday and at age twenty was shot down on a combat mission over the Pacific. He married young, started a family, and resisted pressure to go to Wall Street, striking out for the adventurous world of Texas oil. Over the course of three decades, Bush would rise from the chairmanship of his county Republican Party to serve as congressman, ambassador to the United Nations, head of the Republican National Committee, envoy to China, director of Central Intelligence, vice president under Ronald Reagan, and, finally, president of the United States. In retirement he became the first president since John Adams to see his son win the ultimate prize in American politics. With access not only to the Bush diaries but, through extensive interviews, to the former president himself, Meacham presents Bush’s candid assessments of many of the critical figures of the age, ranging from Richard Nixon to Nancy Reagan; Mao to Mikhail Gorbachev; Dick Cheney to Donald Rumsfeld; Henry Kissinger to Bill Clinton. Here is high politics as it really is but as we rarely see it. From the Pacific to the presidency, Destiny and Power charts the vicissitudes of the life of this quietly compelling American original. Meacham sheds new light on the rise of the right wing in the Republican Party, a shift that signaled the beginning of the end of the center in American politics. Destiny and Power is an affecting portrait of a man who, driven by destiny and by duty, forever sought, ultimately, to put the country first. Praise for Destiny and Power “Should be required reading—if not for every presidential candidate, then for every president-elect.”—The Washington Post “Reflects the qualities of both subject and biographer: judicious, balanced, deliberative, with a deep appreciation of history and the personalities who shape it.”—The New York Times Book Review “A fascinating biography of the forty-first president.”—The Dallas Morning News

The tongue is a power part of the body. In terms of size that can be seen, the size of the tongue is relatively small. The weight of tongue in the male is averagely 70 grams while in the female is about 60 grams. However, the tongue has potential to do great and mighty things. It has a deep connection with the human heart. That is to say, beyond physical anatomy of the tongue, there is more about the spiritual effect of the tongue. As the spirit world supersede the physical, so is the spiritual effect of tongue goes beyond the physical structure of it.Yes, there is power in the tongue, your tongue is so powerful that it can improve or destroy your entire life. A lot of people ended their life in the prison yard because of the way they use their tongue, despite the fact that they are innocent. Many people passed to the great beyond untimely, because of the use of the tongue. Employment seekers fail interview because of the way they use their tongue. The tongue is so powerful that it can destroy a whole nation; it can cause war in between two countries.According to the book of Ephesians. 4:29: Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen: The tongue has the capacity to determine what you become and you will not. God, the Almighty Creator of all things, understood the potent weapon called tongue this by placing tongue in a "double jail": the lips and the teeth. The only way the tongue exhibit its potency is through spoken word. Have you ever wondered why God kept tongue in such prison? I feel it simply because He wants the individual to be responsible for the use of his or her tongue. Lest one say, I never knew when I said such. Therefore, every man is responsible for letting the tongue out of "the double prisons."When you take time to look at the story of creation, the world we see and all the beautiful things that are in it were created by the spoken word of the Almighty. Hence, you will understand the power given to the instrument or tool through which words are spoken. As I have stated earlier, the tongue is deeply connected to the human heart. Your tongue is just a faithful representative of your heart. Your tongue is "the painter" which gives the picture of the state of your heart. Where you are and where you will reach in life are both functions of how you use your tongue.Have you ever desired to change your status? Perhaps you have been wondering how you can get out of that predicament, and you are wondering where to start. You need not look far, start by watching the use of your tongue. Your status is as good as the way you use your tongue.Of course, I admit that it's difficult for a natural man to put in check the use of the tongue. This is due to his state of heart. Be that as it may, if you will ever see any improvement or advancement, it is high time you started changing your vocabularies. Form negativity to positive words. From the story of woes to good news. From murmuring to giving thanks, from cursing to blessing.Though, many people through ignorance carelessly use this lethal weapon and thereby limit themselves and destiny of people around them. This book seeks to reveal to you the potency force behind the use of tongue as well as how you can begin to use this faithful servant to create the world you desire.

Law, Rights and Ideology in Russia: Landmarks in the destiny of a great power brings into sharp focus several key episodes in Russia’s vividly ideological engagement with law and rights. Drawing on 30 years of experience of consultancy and teaching in many regions of Russia and on library research in Russian-language texts, Bill Bowring provides unique insights into people, events and ideas. The book starts with the surprising role of the Scottish Enlightenment in the origins of law as an academic discipline in Russia in the eighteenth century. The Great Reforms of Tsar Aleksandr II, abolishing serfdom in 1861 and introducing jury trial in 1864, are then examined and debated as genuine reforms or the response to a revolutionary situation. A new interpretation of the life and work of the Soviet legal theorist Yevgeniy Pashukanis leads to an analysis of the conflicted attitude of the USSR to international law and human rights, especially the right of peoples to self-determination. The complex history of autonomy in Tsarist and Soviet Russia is considered, alongside the collapse of the USSR in 1991. An examination of Russia’s plunge into the European human rights system under Yeltsin is followed by the history of the death penalty in Russia. Finally, the secrets of the ideology of ‘sovereignty’ in the Putin era and their impact on law and rights are revealed. Throughout, the constant theme is the centuries long hegemonic struggle between Westernisers and Slavophiles, against the backdrop of the Messianism that proclaimed Russia to be the Third Rome, was revived in the mission of Soviet Russia to change the world and which has echoes in contemporary Eurasianism and the ideology of sovereignty.
