World Intellectual Property Day
Around the World in Eighty Days Автор: Michael P.
Following the route taken by Phileas Fogg 115 years earlier, Michael Palin set out from the Reform Club to circumnavigate the world. ' The pace of this kind of travel has not much changed since Fogg set out in 1872. Passenger services have practically disappeared from the world' s shipping lanes . . . Recourse to air travel, even as a convenient means of escape, was not allowed' . Trains may be a little faster, but there are certainly no high-speed rail links yet across India, China or the USA. The rules were simple, but nothing else about the trip was straightforward. . . From a tour of Venice on a rubbish barge to ship spotting at the Suez Canal and the bicycle rush hour and snake snacks in China, this is an unparalleled tribute to man' s ability to make life difficult for himself. 792 руб √ в наличии

This Simian World Автор: Clarence D.Jr.
If a crime is committed on impulse, we partly forgive it. Why? Because, being simians, with a weakness for yielding to impulses, we like to excuse ourselves by feeling not accountable for them. 594 руб √ в наличии
