Printer's Pie cover

Lorsqu'on a demandé à Richard Hawthorne s’il aimerait écrire son histoire pour cette série de brochures, il a commencé par s'y opposer. Il avait l’impression de ne rien avoir d’intéressant à partager. Ceci est l’histoire classique d’un homme ordinaire faisant des choses extraordinaires – s’il est prêt à être guidé par Dieu – avec pour résultat la reconnaissance par la Reine pour « services rendus à la communauté ».

Printer's Pie cover

When Richard was asked if he would like to write his story for this series of booklets, he demurred. He didn’t feel he had enough to tell. But I think it is a classic tale of how an ordinary chap can do extraordinary things – if he’s prepared to be guided by God – resulting in recognition by the Queen for ‘services to the community’.

Corruption Who Cares? by Brian Lightowler

Quanto dinheiro ilícito, dinheiro cinza precisando de lavagem, está circulando pelo globo? Quanto dinheiro é pago em subornos no exterior a cada ano? Empresas podem exigir dedução fiscal pelo pagamento de subornos em países estrangeiros? Quanto lucram os barões das drogas a cada ano? Corrupção: Quem se importa? responde a essas perguntas e muitas outras à medida em que revela o flagelo da corrupção que hoje ameaça a sociedade moderna. Porém, mais do que isso, é um livro de esperança. Ele mostra como governos, ONGs e cidadãos comuns estão respondendo e fazendo avanços em direção a um mundo construído nos padrões de integridade e honestidade.

The Man Who Built Peace captures the life and peace-making legacy of a man you may never have heard of – and who changed the world. Following a personal experience of transformation, Frank Buchman set out to pass on that experience to the world and helped shape the course of history. He was a revolutionary thinker and leader whose trust-building, reconciliation and peace efforts greatly influenced the 20th century. His vision and legacy are a powerful answer to the growing mistrust, injustice and extremism facing the world today.
