The Delicious History of the Holiday

Our holidays lie near the heart of our emotional life, enjoyed for a fortnight, fed on imagination for eleven months of the year. What we want from our holidays tells a lot about who we are and what we wish we were. In this charming account, Fred Inglis traces the rise of the holiday from its early roots in the Grand Tour, through the coming of Thomas Cook and his Blackpool packages, to sex tourism and the hippie trail to Kathmandu. He celebrates the bodily pleasures of generations of tourists - from Edwardian banquets in Paris to fish and chips on the beach, from the Bright Young Things on the Riviera to the chosen hardships of the sea, the desert wastes and the mountain tops. He considers the ideals and the spiritual aspirations which are part of what we look for in a holiday, but he also warns of a darker current - how we have increasingly destroyed what we take most pleasure in and how the dealings between those who have much and those who have little, can seldom, however good our intentions, avoid the taint of exploitation.

Claude Fleury (1640–1723) as an Educational Historiographer and Thinker

This study has grown out of an interest in French education and cul ture that dates from fondly remembered student days in France. Specifically, it is an attempt to explain the educational thought of Claude Fleury, a literate, responsible homme de leUres who analyzed the historical origins of public education as it existed in seventeenth-cen tury France and, on that basis, proposed what he considered to be a more generally useful program of studies. Generous space has been devoted to historical, social, and pedagogical background in an effort to place Fleury's thought in its proper cultural context; namely, that of the decline of the Classical Age and the dawn of the Age of Reason. This background material represents also an attempt to explain, at times in detail, the origin of Fleury's Traite du Choix et de la Methode des Etudes and his rise to scholarly and pedagogical prominence at court. It is possible that Fleury's thought, while of most immediate interest to students of seventeenth-century cultural history, will be of interest also to a more general audience. In particular, those charged with providing education that must respond to the ever increasing practical needs of society and at the same time give to contemporary man a of his cultural heritage may find in Fleury's thought some useful sense historical perspective. It is a pleasure to acknowledge that this study would not have been possible without the encouragement and guidance of Dr. William W.

Diese Ernährung geht zu Herzen! "Herzerkrankungen sind vermeidbar. Und wer bereits darunter leidet, kann ihr Fortschreiten stoppen und die heimtückischen Folgen rückgängig machen. Der Schlüssel zum Erfolg liegt in der Ernährung." Caldwell B. Esselstyn war Olympiasieger im Achter, erfolgreicher Chirurg und anerkannter Präventivmediziner - vor allem aber ist er ein Pionier. Sein revolutionäres Herz-Ernährungsprogramm - rein pflanzlich, ohne Fette, vegan - hat seine Wirksamkeit in über zwei Jahrzehnten und vielen Studien bewiesen. Die Teilnehmer seiner ersten Studie sind auch heute - 20 Jahre später! - trotz schlechter Prognosen immer noch frei von Beschwerden. Esselstyns Botschaft ist dabei so einfach wie radikal: Wer anders isst, erkrankt erst gar nicht am Herzen. Und wer seine Ernährung nach einem Herzinfarkt umstellt, hat beste Chancen, ohne Medikamente und ohne Operation ein gutes, gesundes Leben zu führen. Probieren Sie es aus - und gewinnen Sie so Lebensqualität und Wohlbefinden zurück.
