Idea Book
What is a good book idea for preteens?

I am writing multiple books right now, and in english I have to write a story each week and I have a great talent for writing, but I need a really good story idea just so I can keep writing. I am interested in ghosts, faeries, basically anything fantasy. I’m also into mystery a lot. If you could give me something that combines that, I would be eternally grateful!

You might find some story based on “Soul Survivor” and/or Dr. Carol Bowman’s work, perhaps someone who has memories of a past life. “The Great Divorce,” C. S. Lewis, is a good model.

An Empire of Ideals: The Chimeric Imagination of Ronald Reagan (Routledge Research in American Politics and Governance)


An Empire of Ideals: The Chimeric Imagination of Ronald Reagan (Routledge Research in American Politics and Governance)


$187


Binding: Hardcover Author: Justin D. Garrison Language: English Publication Date: 2013-02-15 Number of Pages: 252 Publisher: Routledge Justin D. Garrisonâ Provides An Original And Groundbreaking Analysis Of Ronald Reagan’S Imagination As It Was Expressed Mainly In His Presidential Speeches. He Argues That The Predominant Strain Of Reagan’S Imagination Is “Chimeric,” That Is, Imbued With A High Degree Of Optimism, Romantic Dreaminess, Naivetã©, And Illusion. Reagan Spoke Often About Religion, Democracy, Freedom, Conservatism, Progress, America’S Role In The World, The American People, The American Founding, And Peace. These Are For Him Important Symbols, Which Together Express His General Vision Of Politics And Human Existence. These Symbols Have To Be Analyzed In Depth In Order To Understand Who Reagan Really Was And What He Represented To His Admirers. The Book Concludes That Reagan’S Vision Contains Many Dubious Elements That Present Dangers For Practical Politics And Claims That The Popularity Of Reagan’S Imagination Among Americans Suggests A Problematic Self-Understanding. Surpassing, Existing Works On Reagan’S Ideas And Speeches, This Book Systematically Explains The General Quality And Major Components Of Reagan’S Vision, And It Draws Upon Political Theory, Aesthetics, And American Political Thought To Analyze His Imagination.

(In)Security and the Production of International Relations: The Politics of Securitisation in Europe (Routledge Critical Security Studies)


(In)Security and the Production of International Relations: The Politics of Securitisation in Europe (Routledge Critical Security Studies)


$199.5


Binding: Hardcover Author: Jonas Hagmann Language: English Publication Date: 2014-12-05 Number of Pages: 244 Publisher: Routledge This Book Provides A Framework For Analysing The Interplay Between Securitisation And Foreign Affairs, Reconnecting Critical Security Studies With Traditional Ir Concerns About Interstate Relations. What Happens To Foreign Policymaking When Actors, Things Or Processes Are Presented As Threats This Book Explains State Behaviour On The Basis Of A Reflexive Framework Of Insecurity Politics, And Argues That Governments Act On The Knowledge Of International Danger Available In Their Societies, But That Such Knowledge Is Organised By Markedly Varying Ideas Of Who Threatens Whom And How. The Book Develops This Argument And Illustrates It By Means Of Various European Case Studies. Moving Across European History And Space, These Case Studies Show How Securitisation Has Projected Evolving And Often Contested Local Ideas Of The Organisation Of International Insecurity, And How Such Knowledges Of World Politics Have Then Conditioned Foreign Policymaking On Their Own Terms. With Its Focus On Insecurity Politics, The Book Provides New Perspectives For The Study Of International Security. Moving The Discipline From Systemic Theorising To A Theory Of International Systematisation, It Shows How World Politics Is, In Practice, Often Conceived In A Different Way Than That Assumed By Ir Theory. By The Same Token, By Depicting National Insecurity As A Matter Of Political Construction, The Book Also Raises The Challenging Question Of Whether Certain Projections Of Insecurity May Be Considered More Warranted Than Others. This Book Will Be Of Much Interest To Students Of Critical Security Studies, European Politics, Foreign Policy And Ir, In General.
