"And I was there" : Pearl Harbor and Midway--breaking the secrets by Edwin T Layton( Book )

14 editions published between 1985 and 2006 in English and held by 2,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pearl Harbor. 7 December 1941. Japanese bombs and torpedoes slam into the battleships of the Pacific Fleet as Commander Edwin T. Layton leaps up the stairs to his second-floor office. He looked out the window to see Oklahoma upside down and Arizona ablaze. Why did the Japanese attack? What had gone wrong? This is the first book by a top-ranking American navy officer to answer these questions. Admiral Layton scrupulously kept these secrets to himself - for forty-three years - until recently, when the government released half a million classified documents from its intelligence archives. Only then did Layton believe he was free to tell his story. He names those who knew about the Japanese intentions, and how they misused it. --from inside jacket

The rule of metaphor : Multi-disciplinary studies of the creation of meaning in language by Paul Ricœur( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 2006 in English and Multiple languages and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Paul Ricoeur is widely regarded as one of the most distinguished philosophers of our time. In The Rule of Metaphor this intellectual giant of our age seeks 'to show how language can extend itself to its very limits, forever discovering new resonances within itself.' Recognizing the fundamental power of language in constructing the world we perceive, Ricoeur reveals the processes by which linguistic imagination creates and recreates meaning through metaphor. Taking further his acclaimed analysis of the power of myth and symbol, Ricoeur invites us to explore the many layers of language in order to rediscover what that meaning might be. A fruitful and insightful study of how language affects our understanding of the world, this book is also an indispensable work for all those seeking some kind of meaning in uncertain times."--Jacket
