William Bligh, Fellow of the Royal Society, Vice-Admiral of Britain, one-time Governor of the early Australia when that was probably the most thankless and among the most difficult jobs on earth, "Bread-fruit" Bligh of mutiny fame--there was a Man! Bound to the Navy from the age of seven, at sea from 1769 when he was sixteen, Master with the famous James Cooke in H.M.S. Resolution 1772-74, and with the great Captain at Kealakakua when Cook was slain ; hero of the mutiny on the Bounty ; bringer of Pacific bread-fruit to the West Indies in the Providence ; through the thick of the sea wars waged by the English with half of Europe, distinguishing himself as a fighting officer under the greatest admirals in the toughest battles (the incomparable Nelson at Copenhagen, Duncan in the North Sea) : always the bull-voiced, fiery, cocky, capable little Bligh in the thick of things. -- Introduction

On the origin of species by means of natural selection, or, The preservation of favoured races in the struggle for life by Charles Darwin( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In this book, David Korten makes a compelling and well-documented case that capitalism's claims to being the engine of wealth creation, the champion of democracy, and the embodiment of the market economy are unfounded. Among Korten's conclusions: Capitalism is a pathology that afflicts democracies and market economies in the absence of vigilant public oversight. The consolidation of economic power under a handful of global mega-corporations is a victory for central planning - not the market economy. The alternative to the new global capitalism is a planetary system of democratically governed market economies that honor basic market principles of the sort actually advocated by Adam Smith."--BOOK JACKET
